611 COMMERCIAL: May Convert to Ch. 7 if Sale Not Completed in 1 Yr
------------------------------------------------------------------
611 Commercial, Inc., filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Middle District of Pennsylvania an amended disclosure statement
dated Jan. 16, 2017, referring to the Debtor's amended Chapter 11
plan of reorganization dated Jan. 16, 2017.

Class 6 Gerald Gay's Claims are unimpaired under the Plan and will
retain his interest in any remaining assets.

Class 4 Neil and Nancy Merring's Claim -- totaling 105,897.90 at 6%
-- will be paid in full at the time of the sale of the Debtor's
real estate.  The sale must occur within one year of the effective
date of the Plan.  If there is no sale within one year then case
converts to Chapter 7.

Since the filing of the Chapter 11 case, the Debtor has solicited
multiple developers and investors concerning the possible sale and
development of the three properties of the Debtor.  In fact, the
Debtor was able to find a buyer for the Greenview Drive parcel and
that sale was approved by the Court and consummated in August 2015,
which resulted in the resolution of the largest secured claim of
the Debtor.  The Monroe County Tax Claim Bureau received a large
property tax payment, as well.  Since that time, the Debtor has
actively marketed for sale the remaining two parcels of the
property (611/Applegate parcel and Cherry Lane parcel).  Both
properties are situated in very desirable locations.  The
611/Applegate Parcel is contiguous to Route 611 in Stroudsburg.
There is a substantial amount of traffic that passes by that parcel
of property, each and every day.  In fact, there is steady growth
along the 611 corridor which continues to support that market value
of the 611/Applegate Parcel.

The Cherry Lane Parcel is located in Tannersville, Pennsylvania,
and is, approximately, 100 yards from Route 611 in an area that is
growing at a tremendous pace because of the large growth of water
parks, skiing, snowboarding and other leisure activities in this
area.  This has resulted in an increase in the market value of real
estate, as well as an increase in the turnover rate regarding real
estate in that area.  These dynamics, thereby, increase the ability
of sellers to liquidate property in this area.

The Debtor intends to continue to market the properties in order to
acquire viable buyers.  The Debtor is proposing in its Plan that it
will satisfy all remaining claims of the Debtor within one year of
the Effective Date of the Plan.  The Plan does not require a
complete liquidation of all real estate since the Debtor believes
that the total value of each parcel of property exceeds the value
of the remaining claims.  The Debtor will retain a portion of its
real estate after the balance of claims of the Debtor are paid or
resolved in accordance with the Plan.  The Debtor has a limited
number of outstanding claims.  The total amount of outstanding
claims, after all disputed issues are resolved is $174,046.55.

A sale of the 611/Applegate Parcel ($550,000) would far exceed the
total amount of these claims and the sale of the Cherry Lane Parcel
($200,000) would also result in enough income to pay all of the
claims in full.  The Debtor is seeking the approval to receive one
year from the Effective Date to pay 100% of the outstanding
claims.

The Court has approved Thomas R. Wilkins of Better Homes and
Gardens Real Estate Wilkins & Associates, as real estate broker, to
sell these properties and, in addition, the principal of the
Debtor, Gerald Gay, has been taking an active role in finding a
suitable buyer for these parcels of land, as well.

The Debtor also agrees that if the sales strategies referred to are
not accomplished within one year of the Effective Date of the Plan
then, the Debtor agrees that the case will automatically convert to
Chapter 7 for liquidation by the Chapter 7 trustee.

A copy of the Amended Disclosure Statement is available at:

          http://bankrupt.com/misc/pamb14-04173-164.pdf

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on Oct. 13, 2016, the
central theme of the Debtor's previous Chapter 11 Plan, as outlined
in the disclosure statement, is the liquidation of its real estate.
According to that plan, the Debtor's outstanding claims and their
remaining claim amounts are:

     * Internal Revenue Service ($14,901)
     * Department of Revenue ($600)
     * Monroe County Tax Claim Bureau ($52,647)
     * Neil and Nancy Merring ($105,898)
     * Cisneroff Consulting (Disputed)

611 Commercial, Inc., is a Pennsylvania corporation which is
principally involved in the development and sale of its real
estate.  The Debtor was incorporated on May 6, 2002.

The Debtor sought Chapter 11 protection (Bankr. M.D. Pa. Case No.
14-04173) on Sept. 9, 2014.  The petition was signed by Gerald Gay,
president.  The Honorable John J. Thomas is assigned to the case.
The Debtor estimated assets at $1 million to $10 million and
liabilities at $500,000 to $1 million.  Philip W. Stock, Esq., at
the Law Office of Philip W. Stock serves as the Debtor's counsel.


7470 COMMERCIAL: U.S. Trustee Unable to Appoint Committee
---------------------------------------------------------
An official committee of unsecured creditors has not yet been
appointed in the Chapter 11 case of 7470 Commercial Way Partners,
LLC, as of Jan. 19, according to a court docket.

                     About 7470 Commercial

7470 Commercial Way Partners, LLC, based in Las Vegas, Nevada,
filed a Chapter 11 petition (Bankr. D. Nev. Case No. 16-15253) on
Sept. 26, 2016. The Hon. Bruce T. Beesley presides over the case.

counsel.

In its petition, the Debtor estimated $1 million to $10 million in
both assets and liabilities.  The petition was signed by David
Suder, managing member.


97-111 HALE: Sale of White Plains Property to Hale for $8M Denied
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Robert D. Drain of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of New York denied the bidding procedures of 97-111 Hale,
LLC, and 100-114 Hale, LLC, in connection with their sale of
contiguous real property and improvements thereon located at 97-111
and 100-114 Hale Avenue, White Plains, New York, to Hale Avenue
Development, LLC, for $8,000,000, subject overbid.

A hearing on the Motion was held on Jan. 12, 2017.

The Court, after due deliberation, held that the proposed sale
would not be approved pursuant to 11 U.S.C. Section 363(b) and (f)
and, therefore, that the proposed bidding procedures, auction and
scheduling of the sale hearing would not be a good exercise of
business judgement or in the best interests of the Debtor's estate,
and (b) that the Debtors' requested relief would not adequately
protect the Secured Creditor's interests in the Debtors' property.

                     About 97-111 Hale

97-111 Hale, LLC, sought Chapter 11 protection (Bankr. S.D.N.Y.
Case No. 15-22381) on March 25, 2015.  The case is assigned to
Robert D. Drain.

The Debtor has an estimated assets of $5,500,000 and $16,700,000
of
liabilities.

The Debtor tapped Jonathan S. Pasternak, Esq., at DelBello
Donnellan Weingarten Wise & Wiederkehr, LLP, as counsel.

The petition was signed by Eli Bobker, manager Hale Club, LLC,
managing member.

ACELITY LP: Moody's Assigns B1 Rating to New 1st Lien Debt
----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a B1 rating to Acelity's L.P.,
Inc.'s new senior secured credit facility, which includes $1.34
billion of first lien term loan debt and a $300 million revolving
credit facility. Moody's also withdrew the Speculative Grade
Liquidity Rating of SGL-2. All other existing ratings, including
the B3 Corporate Family Rating, B3-PD Probability of Default
Rating, and existing instrument ratings remain on review for
upgrade.

Proceeds from the new senior secured credit facility and
divestiture of Acelity's LifeCell business will together be used to
refinance and repay existing debt, pay transaction fees, and fund a
$100 million special dividend. The new financing is conditioned
upon Acelity completing the sale of its LifeCell business. Moody's
expects Acelity's pending $2.9 billion sale of LifeCell to
Allergan, Inc. (Baa3 stable) to close during the first quarter of
2017.

If the transaction is completed, Moody's expects to upgrade
Acelity's Corporate Family Rating to B2 from B3 and Probability of
Default Rating to B2-PD from B3-PD. Moody's also expects to
downgrade the existing senior secured first lien notes to B1 from
Ba3 due to the significant loss of cushion provided by more junior
debt in the new capital structure. Finally, Moody's anticipates
that it will upgrade Acelity's existing senior secured third lien
notes to Caa1 from Caa2.

"Acelity's sale of LifeCell along with the proposed refinancing
will result in a substantial deleveraging that will more than
offset the loss of scale and business diversification," stated
Moody's Vice President/Senior Analyst Jonathan Kanarek. Moody's
estimates that Acelity's pro forma adjusted debt to EBITDA will
decline to 5.6 times from 7.4 times currently.

Ratings assigned:

Acelity L.P., Inc.

  Senior secured revolving credit facility expiring 2022 at B1
  (LGD 3)

  Senior secured USD first lien term loan due 2024 at B1 (LGD 3)

  Senior secured EUR first lien term loan due 2024 at B1 (LGD 3)

Acelity L.P., Inc.

  Corporate Family Rating at B3

  Probability of Default Rating at B3-PD

  Senior secured third lien notes due 2021 at Caa2 (LGD 6)

  Senior unsecured notes due 2019 at Caa2 (LGD 6)

Ratings withdrawn:

Acelity L.P., Inc.

  Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating at SGL-2

RATINGS RATIONALE

Moody's expects its ratings review to focus on Acelity's plans for
deleveraging into a more tenable capital structure with proceeds
from the divestiture of its regenerative medicine business. During
its review process, Moody's will also consider changes in business
concentration and overall scale and recent operating performance.

The expected upgrade to B2 in Acelity's Corporate Family Rating
reflects the material reduction in the company's financial leverage
and improvement in interest coverage that will result following
debt paydown. If upgraded, the B2 rating would reflect the firm's
high financial leverage, modest interest coverage, and high
business concentration. Moody's expects Acelity's debt to EBITDA to
gradually moderate towards 5.0 times by mid-2018. Furthermore,
Moody's anticipates Acelity's interest coverage (EBITA to interest
expense) to approach 1.6 in mid-2018. The firm's sale of its
regenerative medicine business (LifeCell) will elevate Acelity's
business risk by leaving it significantly concentrated within
advanced wound care. Acelity will also continue to face competitive
challenges in its core negative pressure wound therapy franchise.
The B2 rating is supported by Acelity's considerable scale and the
strong market presence of its Vacuum Assisted Closure products. The
ratings are also supported by the company's healthy margins and
Moody's expectation that growth in newer product offerings such as
incision management will help offset headwinds in the V.A.C.
business.

Excluding the proposed divestiture, the B3 Corporate Family Rating
reflects Acelity's very high financial leverage, limited free cash
flow and modest interest coverage. Also excluding the proposed
divestiture, Moody's does not expect a meaningful reduction in
leverage in the near-term as the company is facing challenges in
its core negative pressure wound therapy franchise and is still
required to make significant cash outlays related to litigation
settlements. The ratings also reflect Acelity's considerable scale
and the strong market presence of its Vacuum Assisted Closure
products. The ratings are also supported by the company's healthy
margins and the expectation that growth in newer product offerings
will help offset headwinds in the V.A.C. business.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was that for the
Global Medical Product and Device Industry published in October
2012.

Headquartered in San Antonio, Texas, Acelity is a global medical
technology company with leadership positions in advanced wound care
and regenerative medicine. Revenues are approximately $1.9, or $1.4
billion pro forma for the LifeCell divestiture. Acelity is owned by
a private equity consortium, including Apax Partners and affiliates
of the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board and Public Sector
Pension Investment Board.

beneficially owns 81,784,076 shares of common stock of Advanced
Micro Devices Inc. representing 8.8 percent of the shares
outstanding.  A full-text copy of the regulatory filing is

                  About Advanced Micro Devices

Sunnyvale, California-based Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.,
(NASDAQ:AMD) is a global semiconductor company.  AMD --
http://www.amd.com/-- offers x86 microprocessors, as a standalone
central processing unit (CPU) or as incorporated into an
accelerated processing unit (APU), chipsets, and discrete graphics
processing units (GPUs) for the consumer, commercial and
professional graphics markets, and server and embedded CPUs, GPUs
and APUs, and semi-custom System-on-Chip (SoC) products and
technology for game consoles.

AMD incurred a net loss of $660 million on $3.99 billion of net
revenue for the year ended Dec. 26, 2015, compared to a net loss of
$403 million on $5.50 billion of net revenue for the year ended
Dec. 27, 2014.

As of Sept. 24, 2016, AMD had $3.61 billion in total assets, $3.23
billion in total liabilities and $385 million in total
stockholders' equity.

                          *     *     *

In September 2016, S&P Global Ratings affirmed its 'CCC+' corporate
credit rating on Sunnyvale, Calif.-based AMD.  The outlook is
stable.  In addition, S&P assigned its 'CCC' issue-level rating to
the company's senior unsecured convertible notes due in 2026.  S&P
said the ratings reflect AMD's vulnerable business risk profile:
weak PC industry conditions, intense competition from Intel, and
challenges to grow in targeted enterprise, and embedded and
semi-custom product markets to offset PC business declines.

In September 2016, Moody's Investors Service affirmed AMD's 'Caa1'
corporate family rating and the 'Caa2' rating on the senior
unsecured notes, and revised the rating outlook to positive from
negative. The speculative grade liquidity rating is upgraded to
SGL-2 from SGL-3.  The positive outlook reflects AMD's prospects
for improved operating performance and cash generation as well as
the improved product portfolio enabling the company to compete in
the current discrete GPUs (graphics processing unit), APUs
(application process units), x86 and ARM CPUs (central processing
unit) market.  Moody's said, "Although we expect ongoing revenue
declines and operating losses in its PC-related business
(microprocessors and graphics chips), the growing EESC (enterprise,
embedded, and semi-custom) business supported by the reported
design wins, we project break even to modest profitability
beginning in the second half of 2016."

In March 2016, Fitch Ratings downgraded and withdrew the ratings
for AMD including the Long-term Issuer Default Rating (IDR) to
'CCC' from 'B-'.  Fitch has withdrawn AMD's ratings for commercial
reasons.  The downgrade reflects prospects for negative free cash
flow (FCF) over the intermediate term and the consequent liquidity
issues and refinancing risk that could develop as the 2019 and 2020
debt maturities approach.


AIRXCEL INC: S&P Assigns 'B' CCR & Rates $300MM Sr. Notes 'B'
-------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said it assigned its 'B' corporate credit rating
to Wichita, Kan.-based Airxcel Inc.  The outlook is stable.

Airxcel plans to issue $300 million of senior secured notes due
2022 and an unrated $40 million asset based revolving credit
facility (ABL) due 2021.  Airxcel will use the proceeds to
refinance all of its existing debt, to fund a distribution to its
owners, and for transaction fees and expenses.

At the same time, S&P assigned a 'B' issue-level rating and '3'
recovery rating to the company's proposed $300 million of senior
secured notes due 2022.  The '3' recovery rating indicates S&P's
expectation for meaningful (50% to 70%; lower half of range)
recovery for lenders in the event of a payment default.

S&P did not assign ratings to the proposed $40 million ABL due
2021.

The company will use the proceeds from the proposed notes to
refinance all of its existing debt, to fund a distribution to its
owners, and for transaction fees and expenses.  The ABL is expected
to be undrawn at close.

"The rating on Airxcel primarily reflects high leverage, our
anticipation for high EBITDA volatility over the economic cycle,
revenue concentration among its top customers, a relatively low
EBITDA margin, and small scale compared to other rated leisure
companies," said S&P Global Ratings credit analyst Daniel Pianki.

The company's leading market position in North America for most of
its products, a good percentage of sales to aftermarket customers,
and a low fixed cost base compared to some other leisure goods
manufacturers partly offset these risk factors.

The stable outlook reflects S&P's expectation for good operating
performance that will enable the company to modestly reduce
leverage, bringing adjusted debt to EBITDA to the high-4x area in
2017 and the mid-4x area in 2018.



ALLIANT HOLDINGS: S&P Retains 'B' CCR on Refinancing & Repricing
----------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said that its 'B' corporate credit rating on
Alliant Holdings L.P. and Alliant Holdings Intermediate LLC are
unchanged following the company's announced refinancing and
repricing of its term loan.  The company is refinancing its
existing $278.6 million term loan B-2 tranche by upsizing its
original $1.3 billion term loan B by the same amount to create a
single term loan tranche.  Proposed pricing on the term loan is
LIBOR plus 325 basis points with a 1% floor (a 25 basis point
improvement on the original term loan and 75 basis point
improvement on the B-2 tranche).  Financial leverage of
approximately 7x (pro-forma for full year effect of acquisitions
closed in the last year) as of Sept. 30, 2016 is unchanged post
transaction, as debt levels stay the same. EBITDA interest coverage
will see a modest benefit from the better pricing.

The recovery ratings for Alliant's senior secured debt, including
the term loan due 2022 and a revolver due 2020, is a '3'
(indicating an expectation of substantial [50%-70%] recovery in
case of default; lower half of the range), following our recovery
rating update in December 2016.  The recovery rating on the
company's second-lien senior secured debt remains '6'.

   -- Multiple: 6x
   -- Gross recovery value: $1,070 mil.
   -- Net recovery value for waterfall after admin expenses (5%):

AMERICAN CHARTER: Fitch Withdraws BB Rating on Series 2007A Bonds
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings affirms and simultaneously withdraws the 'BB' rating
on approximately $72.8 million series 2007A bonds issued by the
Pima County Industrial Development Authority, Arizona (PCIDA).  The
bonds were issued on behalf of the American Charter Schools
Foundation (ACSF).

                              SECURITY

The bonds are secured by a joint and several pledge of the revenues
of 10 ACSF schools in Arizona (collectively, the bond schools),
which primarily consists of per pupil state funding.  The bonds are
additionally secured by a debt service reserve (DSR). The schools
also make annual renewal and replacement deposits. Charter payments
from the state are made directly to a bond trustee.

                       KEY RATING DRIVERS

RATING WITHDRAWAL: Fitch is withdrawing the rating as ACSF has
chosen to stop participating in the rating process.  Therefore,
Fitch will no longer have sufficient information to maintain the
rating.  Accordingly, Fitch will no longer provide analytical
coverage for ACSF.

WEAK FINANCIAL PROFILE: The rating affirmation reflects a history
of slim but positive GAAP operations (fiscal 2016 margins were
2.4%), a very limited financial cushion, a high debt burden and
slim but positive coverage of transaction maximum annual debt
service (TMADS).  ACSF's financial profile has characteristics
consistent with a speculative grade rating.

ENROLLMENT ISSUES PERSIST: Aggregate enrollment at the 10 schools
leveled out in fall 2016 at 3,621 at the Dec. 2016 count, about the
same as the prior year.  However, this remains well below the fall
2012 (fiscal 2013) enrollment of about 4,270.  Enrollment
volatility is uneven among the 10 schools.  The charter management
organization (CMO) has a history of managing effectively through
enrollment fluctuations.

STRUCTURAL BONDHOLDER PROVISIONS: Legal and structural security
measures include a trustee intercept of state aid.  Fitch's rating
does not incorporate the intercept provision.  This provides for
payment of debt service before any pro-rata distribution of
revenues to the schools, and contractual subordination of the CMO
fee.

                         RATING SENSITIVITIES

Rating sensitivities are not applicable to American Charter School
Foundation as the rating has been withdrawn.

                          CREDIT PROFILE

ACSF is composed of 10 charter high schools, nine of which operate
in the Phoenix, AZ metropolitan area.  A 10th school operates in
Tucson.  Enrollment at Dec. 23, 2016 (the 100-day count) was 3,621,
about the same as the prior year.  However, this remains well below
fall 2012 enrollment of 4,270 and fall 2013 enrollment of 4,072.

ACFS has chosen not to participate in Fitch's rating process.  The
resulting lack of information, particularly related to management,
enrollment trends for the potentially volatile alternate high
schools, future debt plans, and academic performance, do not
provide sufficient information and back-ground for Fitch to
maintain the rating.

All of the bond schools are alternative high schools except for
South Ridge.  The schools maintain independent charters from the
Arizona State Board of Charter Schools (ASBCS).  Seven of ACSF's
schools had 2017 charter expirations, which have been renewed to
2036; the remaining three charters expire in 2018, and are in the
renewal process.  Long 15 to 20 year charter terms are standard in
Arizona.  Fitch did talk with ASBCS, who reported that the ACSF
schools are currently in good standing and in compliance with
required reporting and academic plans.

The ACSF bond schools each have management agreements with the
Leona Group, one of the larger CMOs in Arizona.  ASBCS reports a
positive working relationship with the operator.

All Arizona public schools, including charter schools, transitioned
to Common Core academic standards and testing in the 2014/2015
academic year.  This transition means that 2014/2015 and 2015/2016
academic test results are not comparable to those of prior years.
The state is still developing year-to-year benchmarking and a
rating scale for Arizona schools.  For both academic years, school
letter grades were not assigned or published.  For the 2013/2014
academic year, seven of the schools met the ASBCS dashboard
expectations, and three did not.  Fitch considers the lack of
current academic information for the ACSF schools, and related
management discussion, particularly troublesome.

                    SLIM OPERATING PERFORMANCE

For fiscal 2016, ACSF operating margins were $755,000 or 2.4%,
which was comparable to 2.2% in 2015 and 4.1% in 2014.  The ACFS
bond schools, collectively, have generated slim but positive TMADS
coverage in each of the last seven years.  Fitch defines TMADS as
maximum annual debt service excluding a balloon payment in the last
maturity (typically funded from the DSR).  TMADS coverage was 1.3x
in both fiscals 2016 and 2015, compared to 1.4x in fiscal 2014 and
1.1x in 2013.  The annual debt service coverage covenant is 1x.
Without management participation in the rating process, Fitch
cannot evaluate the schools financial expectation for fiscal 2017.


           LIMITED BALANCE SHEET AND HIGH DEBT LEVERAGE

ACFS historically has a weak balance sheet.  Available funds,
defined as cash and investments not permanently restricted, was
$2.6 million at the end of fiscal 2016, improved from $2.1 million
at fiscal year-end 2015.  However, fiscal 2016 available funds
still represented a very slim 8.7% of operating expenses and 3.7%
of outstanding debt.  The schools have a very high debt burden:
TMADS of $5.6 million (in 2038) was 18% of fiscal 2016 operating
revenues, comparable to recent years.


AMERICAN POWER: Incurs $10.4 Million Net Loss in Fiscal 2016
------------------------------------------------------------
American Power Group Corporation filed with the Securities and
Exchange Commission its annual report on Form 10-K disclosing a net
loss available to common stockholders of $10.40 million on $1.86
million of net sales for the year ended Sept. 30, 2016, compared to
a net loss available to common stockholders of $1.04 million on
$2.95 million of net sales for the year ended Sept. 30, 2015.

As of Sept. 30, 2016, American Power had $9.79 million in total
assets, $8.16 million in total liabilities and $1.62 million in
total stockholders' equity.

As of Sept. 30, 2016, the Company had $211,201 in cash and cash
equivalents and a working capital deficit of $1,130,201.

Schechter Dokken Kanter Andrews & Selcer, Ltd., in Minneapolis,
Minnesota, issued a "going concern" qualification on the
consolidated financial statements for the year ended Sept. 30,
2016, citing that the Company has suffered recurring losses from
operations and has a net capital deficiency that raises substantial
doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern.

ATOP TECH: Jan. 27 Meeting Set to Form Creditors' Panel
-------------------------------------------------------
Andy Vara, Acting United States Trustee for Region 3, will hold an
organizational meeting on Jan. 27, 2017, at 10:00 a.m. in the
bankruptcy case of ATop Tech, Inc.

The meeting will be held at:

               Office of the US Trustee
               844 King Street, Room 3209
               Wilmington, DE 19801

The sole purpose of the meeting will be to form a committee or
committees of unsecured creditors in the Debtors' case.

The organizational meeting is not the meeting of creditors pursuant
to Section 341 of the Bankruptcy Code.  A representative of the
Debtor, however, may attend the Organizational Meeting, and provide
background information regarding the bankruptcy cases.

To increase participation in the Chapter 11 proceeding, Section
1102 of the Bankruptcy Code requires that the United States Trustee
appoint a committee of unsecured creditors as soon as practicable.
The Committee ordinarily consists of the persons, willing to serve,
that hold the seven largest unsecured claims against the debtor of
the kinds represented on the committee.

Section 1103 of the Bankruptcy Code provides that the Committee may
consult with the debtor, investigate the debtor and its business
operations and participate in the formulation of a plan of
reorganization.  The Committee may also perform other services as
are in the interests of the unsecured creditors whom it
represents.


ATOPTECH INC: Draper Athena Buying All Assets for $8 Million
------------------------------------------------------------
ATopTech, Inc., asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of
Delaware to authorize the bidding procedures in connection with the
sale of substantially all assets to Draper Athena Management Co.
Ltd. for $8,000,000, subject to higher or otherwise better bids.

Founded in April 2003 by a team of industry experts, the Company
competes in the physical design segment of the electronic design
automation ("EDA") industry, developing technology and
manufacturing software solutions for engineers in the physical
design of integrated circuits.  Since its founding, the Company has
achieved steady financial growth, becoming a leader in the EDA
field.

Synopsys commenced litigation against the Company, asserting claims
for copyright infringement, infringement of four patents, breach of
a license agreement between the parties and breach of the covenant
of good faith and fair dealing.  The litigation on these claims has
stretched out for more than three years.  Through a motion to
dismiss, the Company successfully limited the scope and extent of
Synopsys' breach of contract claim, and through summary judgment,
limited the scope and extent of Synopsys' copyright infringement
claims.  However, in March 2016, after a three-week trial, the jury
found in favor of Synopsys on the remaining copyright claim, which
alleged that the Company's P&R engine product, Aprisa, infringed on
copyrighted elements contained in one of Synopsys' products.  The
jury awarded $30,400,000 to Synopsys.

The Synopsys Verdict created a significant challenge to the
Company's ability to continue its operations as a going concern.
The Company has taken steps to streamline its operations, including
ceasing any investment into its growth.  After thoroughly
considering the strategic alternatives for the Company, the board
of directors decided that pursuing a sale, merger, acquisition
and/or related transaction was in the best interests of the
Company, its creditors and equity holders.

In July 2016, the Company retained Cowen and Co. as its investment
banker to assist in exploring a potential Transaction.  Cowen has
engaged in a comprehensive marketing process, among other things,
contacting more than 140 potentially interested parties comprised
of both strategic and financial buyers, both in the United States
and China.  After the initial conferences, 29 entities expressed
continued interest and executed non-disclosure agreements.

Cowen continued discussions with these entities and transmitted bid
letters and draft asset purchase agreements to 14 entities that
continued to express interest, and Cowen established a deadline of
Oct. 31, 2016, for interested parties to submit proposals to
qualify as a stalking horse bidder.  In response, three parties
submitted bids, and others expressed interest but indicated that
they were not prepared at the time to commit to submitting a bid.
The board, in consultation with counsel and Cowen, evaluated the
three bids, negotiated revisions to the bids and eventually decided
to pursue what it considered to be the highest or otherwise best
bid.

At the Company's direction, Cowen engaged that bidder in
negotiations which culminated in the execution of a letter of
intent and the negotiation of substantial terms of an asset
purchase agreement.  However, after several rounds of negotiations,
the board and the Company determined that certain demands made by
the proposed bidder were not in the best interests of the Company
and decided to cease negotiations and pursue alternatives.

Consequently, the Company turned its focus to another interested
party which submitted an attractive bid, Draper Athena.  Again at
the Company's direction, Cowen engaged Draper Athena in
negotiations over several days, and, after multiple exchanges of
drafts, the Company and Draper Athena executed a Letter of Intent
on Dec. 2, 2016.  Under the Letter of Intent, among other things,
Draper Athena required certain conditions to be satisfied including
the Debtor requesting the Court to approve, on an expedited basis,
certain bidding and sale procedures and break-up fee provisions and
the closing of a Transaction to Draper Athena by early March 2017.

The Debtor has determined, after considering its alternatives, that
maximizing the value of the Debtor's estate can be best
accomplished through a sale (pursuant to a chapter 11 case, free
and clear of liabilities) of the Acquired Assets.

The Debtor and the Stalking Horse also agreed to the bidding
procedures for an auction, which include a break-up fee and expense
reimbursement in the event a higher or otherwise better bid is
consummated.  

Because the proposed Transaction would permit the business to be
sold as a going concern and given the extensive marketing efforts
undertaken by Cowen and analysis of the offers received thus far,
the Debtor has determined that the Stalking Horse Bid represents
the best opportunity for the Debtor to maximize the value of its
estate and serve as a basis for conducting an auction to seek
higher or otherwise better offers.

The transaction is subject to competitive bidding as set forth in
the Bidding Procedures.  Pursuant to the terms of the Agreement,
the Stalking Horse has agreed to purchase the Acquired Assets for
$8,000,000 in immediately available funds, less certain adjustments
based on deferred revenue, plus the assumption of certain
post-petition liabilities as specifically set forth in the
Agreement.

The salient terms of the Agreement are:

     a. Purchaser: Draper Athena Management Co. Ltd.

     b. Purchase Price: $8,000,000 less Adjusted Deferred Gross
Revenue

     c. Purchased Assets: Substantially all assets of the Debtor.

     d. Assumed Liabilities: All liabilities under the Designated
Contracts to the extent arising after the Closing; and any
obligations related to the continued use of Intellectual Property
Rights after the Closing as determined in a final judgment in
connection with the Synopsys Patent Litigation.

     e. Termination: Agreement can be terminated by (i) written
mutual consent; (ii) by either Purchaser or Seller, if the Closing
will not have occurred on 11:59 p.m. (PT) on the Outside Date (May
31, 2017); (iii) by either Purchaser or Seller if a Government
Entity will have issued a regulation or order which has the effect
of preventing the Transaction; (iv) by either the Purchaser or
Seller if the Court approves an Alternative Transaction; (v) by
Purchaser in the event of a breach of any obligation, warranty or
representation by the Seller; (vi) if a trustee is appointed and
such trustee rejects the Transaction.

     f. Auction to be Conducted: There will be an Auction in the
event there are Qualified Bids other than the Stalking Horse Bid.

     g. Closing and Other Deadlines: Closing must occur on May 31,
2017.

     h. Good Faith Deposit: Stalking Horse deposit is in the amount
of $800,000, payable within 10 days of the entry of the Bidding
Procedures Order.

     i. Use of Proceeds: No restriction on use of sale proceeds.

     j. Rule 6004(h): The Sale order provides relief from
Bankruptcy Rule 6004(h).

The Agreement provides that the Debtor will pay, at Closing, the
Cure Amounts, as determined by the Court, if necessary, to cure all
defaults, including actual or pecuniary losses that have resulted
from defaults under the relevant Executory Contracts.

No less than 21 days prior to the Bid Deadline, the Debtor will
file with the Court and serve on each non-Debtor counterparty to an
executory contract or unexpired lease related to the Assets the
Cure Notice, substantially in the form attached to the Bidding
Procedures Order.

The Debtor is seeking approval of a Break-Up fee in the amount of
$400,000, which is approximately 5 of the purchase price for the
Acquired Assets.

In addition, the Debtor seeks approval of an Expense Reimbursement
to the Stalking Horse in the maximum amount of $600,000 in the
event the Stalking Horse Bid is not approved.

In accordance with Bankruptcy Rule 6004(f)(l), sales of property
outside the ordinary course of business may be by private sale or
by auction.  The Debtor believes that good cause exists to expose
the Purchased Assets to sale at an auction and to approve the
procedures proposed.  An auction conducted substantially in
accordance with the Bidding Procedures will enable the Debtor to
obtain the highest and best offers for the Purchased Assets,
thereby maximizing the value for the estates.

The salient points of the Bidding Procedures are:

     a. Auction Baseline Bid: The purchase price for all or
substantially all of the Acquired Assets which must be greater than
the sum of $8,000,000 plus the Break-Up Fee and the Expense
Reimbursement.

     b. Deposit: A deposit equal to 10% of the total cash and
noncash consideration.

     c. Bid Deadline: March 13, 2017

     d. Minimum Overbid: The minimum Overbid after and above the
Auction Baseline Bid will be made in increments of $100,000.

     e. Selection of Successful Bid: The Prevailing Highest Bid
after each Overbid Round and the Successful Bidder following the
close of the Auction.

     f. Closing with Alternative Back-Up Bidders: If an Auction is
conducted, the Qualified Bidder with the next highest or otherwise
best Bid at the Auction with respect to the Transferred Assets, as
determined by the Seller, will be designated as the backup bidder.
The Backup Bidder will be The Deposit of the Successful Bidder will
be applied to the purchase price at the closing.  The Deposits for
each Qualified Bidder that is neither the Successful Bidder nor the
Backup Bidder will be returned within 3 business days after the
close of the Auction required to keep its last submitted Bid open
and irrevocable until the earlier of the closing of the transaction
with the Successful Bidder or the Outside Date.

     g. Return of Deposits: The Deposit of the Successful Bidder
will be applied to the purchase price at the closing.  The Deposits
for each Qualified Bidder that is neither the Successful Bidder nor
the Backup Bidder will be returned within 3 business days after the
close of the Auction.

A copy of the Agreement and the Bidding Procedures attached to the
Motion is available for free at:

         http://bankrupt.com/misc/ATopTech_Inc_32_Sales.pdf

The Bidding Procedures provide the Debtor with the flexibility to
address unanticipated developments at the Auction, while ensuring
that the propriety of the procedures endures.  Accordingly, the
proposed Bidding Procedures are reasonable, appropriate, and within
the Debtor's sound business judgment and should be approved.

The Debtor submits that entry into the Agreement is a sound
exercise of the Debtor's business judgment because: (i) the
Agreement provides for the sale of the Debtor's business as a going
concern, thereby maximizing the sale value, as compared to
liquidating its assets on a piecemeal basis and (ii) it allows
certain employees to continue employment by the Successful Bidder.
Accordingly, the Debtor asks the Court to approve the sale of
assets to the Buyer free and clear of all liens, claims,
encumbrances, and interest.

Although Bankruptcy Rules 6004(h) and 6006(d) and the Advisory
Committee Notes do not provide specific guidance when a court
should "order otherwise" and eliminate or reduce the 14-day
injunction period, commentators agree that the 14-day period should
be eliminated to allow a sale or other transaction to close
immediately where there has been no objection to the procedure.
Pursuant to the Agreement, and due to potentially diminishing value
of the Acquired Assets, the Debtor must close this sale promptly.
Thus, waiver of any applicable stays is appropriate in the
circumstance.

AUTHENTIDATE HOLDING: CEO Holds 11.7% Equity Stake as of Dec. 19
----------------------------------------------------------------
In a Schedule 13D filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission, Hanif A. Roshan disclosed that as of Dec. 19, 2016, he
may be deemed to be the beneficial owner of 844,339 shares of
Authentidate Holding Corp.'s common stock, representing 11.7% of
the outstanding shares of the Company's Common Stock.  Those shares
exclude any and all shares which may be issued to Mr. Roshan as
additional consideration pursuant to the terms and conditions of
the Merger Agreement.  The percentage of outstanding Common Stock
of the Company which may be deemed to be beneficially owned by the
Reporting Person was calculated based on 7,168,159 shares of the
Company's Common Stock outstanding, as reported in a Current Report
on Form 8-K filed by Authentidate Holding Corp. on Dec. 21, 2016.

Mr. Roshan, presently the chairman and CEO of Authentidate, stated,
"The Reporting Person currently intends to hold the shares of
Common Stock of the Company for investment purposes.  The Reporting
Person does not have any current intention to purchase additional
shares of Common Stock.  The Reporting Person may, from time to
time, acquire additional shares of Common Stock in open market or
negotiated block transactions, consistent with his investment
purposes or may acquire additional securities of the Issuer through
private transactions, which securities may be convertible into
additional shares of Common Stock.  Additionally, the Reporting
Person may from time to time sell shares of Common Stock in open
market transactions or in negotiated block sales to one or more
purchasers, consistent with his investment purpose."

web-based revenue cycle management applications and telehealth
products and services that enable healthcare organizations to
increase revenues, improve productivity, reduce costs, coordinate
care for patients and enhance related administrative and clinical
workflows and compliance with regulatory requirements.  The
Company's web-based services are delivered as Software as a Service

Authentidate reported a net loss of $9.7 million on $3.68 million
of total revenues for the year ended June 30, 2015, compared to a
net loss of $7.14 million on $5.55 million of total revenues for
the year ended June 30, 2014.

As of March 31, 2016, Authentidate had $55.2 million in total
assets, $11.5 million in total liabilities and $43.7 million in
total shareholders' equity.

EisnerAmper LLP, in New York, issued a "going concern"
qualification on the consolidated financial statements for the year
ended June 30, 2015, citing that the Company's recurring losses
from operations and negative cash flows from operations raise
substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern.


AUTHENTIDATE HOLDING: Director Quits Over 'Lack of Transparency'
----------------------------------------------------------------
Ronald C. Oklewicz, a member of the Board of Directors of
Authentidate Holding Corp., delivered a letter notifying the
Company of his decision to resign from the Board effective Jan. 11,
2017.  

In his letter, Mr. Oklewicz made statements expressing his
disagreements with the Company on matters relating to its
operations, policies or practices.  Specifically, Mr. Oklewicz
stated he had concerns arising from an alleged lack of
transparency, candor and effective business processes.  He further
alleged his exclusion from certain meetings of the board or
committees.  

The Company strongly disagrees with a number of the statements and
assertions made by Mr. Oklewicz and submits the following in
response to Mr. Oklewicz's resignation letter.

"The Company strongly disputes Mr. Oklewicz's allegations of a lack
of transparency and candor which led to difficulties for the
combined board to establish trust and cooperation.  The Company's
board of directors has held numerous formal, and other informal,
meetings during the course of the past year, at which Mr. Oklewicz
had mostly attended and was an active participant.  In August 2016,
the board considered terminating its relationship with its then
Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Richard Hersperger, who was initially
introduced to the Company by Mr. Oklewicz.  The board was concerned
that Mr. Oklewicz's relationship with Mr. Hersperger would cause
either a real or apparent conflict and therefore sought to remove
him from these deliberations.  Further, both during and subsequent
to the events surrounding Mr. Hersperger's termination, Mr.
Oklewicz's actions as a board member became increasingly
adversarial and, invariably, his positions were more aligned with
those of Mr. Hersperger rather than the Company."

In effort to allow the board to consider the events surrounding Mr.
Hersperger's departure as CEO in confidence, the Company initially
considered forming an executive committee consisting of all the
members except for Messrs. Oklewicz and Hersperger.  This
"committee" neither ever met nor took any action and was dissolved
in favor of a special committee consisting of three members on Dec.
7, 2016.

AVAYA INC: Files for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Protection
-----------------------------------------------------
Burdened with an unsustainable capital structure of approximately
$6 billion of secured debt, Avaya Inc., together with 17 of its
domestic subsidiaries, commenced a voluntary case under Chapter 11
of the Bankruptcy Code to right-size its balance sheet.  The
Company's foreign affiliates are not included in the filing and
will continue normal operations.

The Chapter 11 cases are pending before the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
for the Southern District of New York (Manhattan).  The Hon. Stuart
M. Bernstein is assigned to the cases and the Debtors have
requested joint administration of the cases under Case No.
17-10089.

"We have conducted an extensive review of alternatives to address
Avaya's capital structure, and we believe pursuing a restructuring
through chapter 11 is the best path forward at this time," said
Kevin Kennedy, chief executive officer of Avaya, in a press
release.  "Reducing the Company's current debt through the chapter
11 process will best position all of Avaya's businesses for future
success."

As part of Avaya's comprehensive assessment of options to address
its capital structure, the Company said it evaluated expressions of
interest in various Avaya assets, including its Contact Center
business.  After extensive evaluation in consultation with its
financial and legal advisors, the Avaya Board of Directors has
determined that focusing on the Company's debt structure is
paramount and a sale of the Contact Center business at this time
would not maximize value for Avaya's customers and all of its
stakeholders.  Avaya remains in ongoing negotiations to monetize
certain other assets, as appropriate, to maximize value for all
stakeholders.

"This is a critical step in our ongoing transformation to a
successful software and services business.  Avaya's current capital
structure is over 10 years old and was put in place to support our
business model as a hardware-focused company, which has evolved
significantly since that time.  Now, as a result of the terms of
Avaya's debt obligations and the upcoming debt maturities, we need
to recapitalize the Company," continued Mr. Kennedy.

The majority of Avaya's funded debt is a legacy of the 2007
transaction in which Avaya was taken private through a transaction
that valued Avaya's then-current operations at approximately $8.2
billion.  Avaya's current funded debt consists of: (a) $55 million
prepetition domestic ABL Credit facility; (b) $3.23 billion
prepetition cash flow credit facility; (c) $1.29 billion first lien
notes; (d) $1.38 billion second lien notes; and (e) $50 million
prepetition foreign ABL credit facility.  Roughly $617 million of
Avaya's indebtedness is scheduled to mature in October 2017.

Avaya also owes pensioners $1.5 billion, including underfunding
liabilities arising from two single employer defined benefit
pension plans sponsored by Avaya as well certain other
postretirement pension obligations.

The Santa Clara, California-based telecommunications company said
the "great recession" along with the market shift away from
hardware-based business communications under the capital
expenditure model towards software and services offerings under the
operating expense model had a substantial impact on its operations.
Avaya also faces ongoing competition to its core Unified
Communications Product and Service offerings from numerous
competitors such as Cisco and Microsoft.

"In light of these factors, the Avaya Enterprise experienced
significant revenue declines over the past several years.  Despite
Adjusted EBITDA remaining resilient during this time period ...
significant annual cash requirements largely consumed Adjusted
EBITDA and have constrained the Avaya Enterprise's cash flows,"
said Eric S. Koza, chief restructuring officer of Avaya, in an
affidavit filed with the Court.

The Company has obtained a committed $725 million
debtor-in-possession financing facility underwritten by Citibank.
Subject to Court approval, this DIP financing, combined with the
Company's cash from operations, is expected to provide sufficient
liquidity during the Chapter 11 cases to support its continuing
business operations and minimize disruption.

                      First Day Motions

Contemporaneously with the filing of the voluntary petitions, the
Debtors filed a number of "first-day" motions with the Court to
facilitate a smooth transition into Chapter 11 and minimize
business disruption.  Among other things, the motions request
authorization to continue certain customer and partner programs,
and to honor certain employee compensation and benefit
obligations.

                         About Avaya

Avaya Inc., and its debtor-affiliates, together with their 158
non-debtor affiliates (collectively, the "Avaya Enterprise"), are a
global provider of contact center, unified communications, and
networking products and services, which serves over 200,000 direct
and indirect customers, consisting of multinational enterprises,
small- and medium-sized businesses, and 911 services as well as
government organizations operating in a diverse range of
industries.   The Avaya Enterprise has approximately 9,700
employees worldwide as of Dec. 31, 2016, with the Debtors'
workforce consisting of approximately 3,800 employees.

                           Advisors

The Debtors have hired Kirkland & Ellis LLP as counsel,  Centerview
Partners LLC as investment banker, Zolfo Cooper LLC as
restructuring advisor, PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP as auditors, KPMG
LLP as tax and accountancy advisor, The Siegfried Group, LLP as
financial services consultant and Prime Clerk LLC as notice, claims
and balloting agent.


AVAYA INC: Files for Chapter 11, Has $725MM DIP Loan from Citibank
------------------------------------------------------------------
Avaya Inc., together with certain of its domestic subsidiaries, on
Jan. 19 commenced a formal proceeding to restructure its balance
sheet to better position itself for the future.  

To facilitate this restructuring, the Company filed voluntary
petitions under chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code in the
United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New
York.  The Company's foreign affiliates are not included in the
filing and will continue normal operations.

The Company has obtained a committed $725 million
debtor-in-possession financing facility underwritten by Citibank.
Subject to Court approval, this DIP financing, combined with the
Company's cash from operations, is expected to provide sufficient
liquidity during the chapter 11 cases to support its continuing
business operations and minimize disruption.

Jessica DiNapoli, writing for Reuters, reported that at a hearing
on Friday, Bankruptcy Judge Stuart Bernstein authorized Avaya to
tap on $425 million of the DIP facility.  Avaya will return to the
Bankruptcy Court today, Jan. 23, to seek approval of other
expenses.

A copy of the DIP Overview, including a 17-week budget, is
available at https://is.gd/VUQ2IE

As part of Avaya's comprehensive assessment of options to address
its capital structure, the Company evaluated expressions of
interest in various Avaya assets, including its Contact Center
business.  After extensive evaluation in consultation with its
financial and legal advisors, the Avaya Board of Directors has
determined that focusing on the Company's debt structure is
paramount and a sale of the Contact Center business at this time
would not maximize value for Avaya's customers and all of its
stakeholders.  Avaya remains in ongoing negotiations to monetize
certain other assets, as appropriate, to maximize value for all
stakeholders.

                Sale of Contact Center Biz on Hold,
               Sale of All Assets to Lenders Mulled

In a regulatory filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission
on Thursday, the Company noted it has pursued a potential
disposition of its contact center businesses. The Company ran a
sale process for the Contact Center Business and received the $3.9
billion bid.  The Company said it does not believe the $3.9 billion
bid is actionable and the sale process was terminated. The Company
has received an updated proposal from a previously involved party
for the potential disposition of its Contact Center Business which
purports to ascribe a purchase price of approximately $3.5 billion,
subject to various adjustments and conditions.

According to Reuters, citing a person familiar with the matter,
Clayton Dubilier & Rice LLC had been in the lead to acquire the
Contact Center business, but Avaya and CD&R could not agree on the
price, terms or how the deal would effect Avaya's pension
obligations.

On Thursday, The Company said it is evaluating that proposal but
there can be no assurance that that proposal is either viable or
will be acceptable to the Company.  The Company is currently
pursuing a potential disposition of its networking businesses,
which shall be subject to, among other things, approval of the
Bankruptcy Court.

A draft copy of the stock and asset purchase agreement filed by
Avaya with the Securities and Exchange Commission indicates that
the Purchaser shall have the right to assign its rights and/or
obligations under the SAPA, in whole or in part, including its
right to acquire any particular assets or equity, to one or more of
its affiliates. The capital structure and corporate governance of
Purchaser shall be determined by the Requisite First Lien Lenders
in their sole discretion.

               Confidentiality Deals with Creditors

In December 2016, the Company entered into separate confidentiality
agreements with members of an ad hoc group of certain first and
second lien creditors of the Company -- Ad Hoc Crossholder Group --
and with members of an ad hoc group of certain first lien creditors
of the Company -- Ad Hoc First Lien Group.

In connection with the Company's ongoing discussions with the
Creditor Groups regarding potential restructurings and strategic
alternatives, in December 2016, the Company prepared and provided
to the Creditor Groups and their professional advisors
presentations related to certain potential restructuring and
disposition scenarios.

On December 20, 2016, in connection with discussions with
representatives of the Creditor Groups, the Company submitted a
proposal to the Creditor Groups regarding a potential in-court
restructuring of the Company's debt obligations.

and/or notes, in an amount not less than $[1,898] million at a
weighted average cash interest rate of [8.0]%, with a [7] year
tenor, and on terms materially consistent in all respects with this
Restructuring Term Sheet and otherwise reasonably acceptable to the
Company and the Requisite Consenting Creditors.  The New Debt shall
be secured by substantially all of the Reorganized Company's
assets, subject to customary exclusions and exceptions; provided
that liens securing the New Debt shall be junior to liens securing
the Exit Facility with respect to ABL Priority Collateral.

In connection with the Company's review of potential restructuring
and strategic alternatives, the Company reviewed a proposal
provided by the Pension Benefit Guaranty Company on December 16,
2016.  A copy of the PBGC terms and conditions is available at
https://is.gd/Pri7Mz

                          CEO's Statement

"We have conducted an extensive review of alternatives to address
Avaya's capital structure, and we believe pursuing a restructuring
through chapter 11 is the best path forward at this time," said
Kevin Kennedy, Chief Executive Officer of Avaya.  "Reducing the
Company's current debt through the chapter 11 process will best
position all of Avaya's businesses for future success."

"This is a critical step in our ongoing transformation to a
successful software and services business. Avaya's current capital
structure is over 10 years old and was put in place to support our
business model as a hardware-focused company, which has evolved
significantly since that time.  Now, as a result of the terms of
Avaya's debt obligations and the upcoming debt maturities, we need
to recapitalize the Company," continued Mr. Kennedy.  "Our business
is performing well, and we are confident that we can emerge from
this process stronger than ever, as this path is a reflection of
our debt structure, not the strength of our operations or business
model.  Pursuing restructuring through chapter 11 will enable us to
reduce Avaya's debt and interest expense, while providing increased
financial flexibility to further invest in innovation and growth to
enhance our market-leading competitive position.  Most importantly,
we are keenly focused on minimizing disruption to our customers,
partners, and employees and do not expect to experience any
material disruptions during the chapter 11 cases."

                         Business as Usual

Contemporaneously with the filing of the voluntary petitions, the
Company filed a number of "first-day" motions with the Court to
facilitate a smooth transition into chapter 11 and minimize
business disruption.  Among other things, the motions request
authorization to continue certain customer and partner programs,
and to honor certain employee compensation and benefit obligations.

Each Credit Agreement provides that as a result of the Bankruptcy
Petitions, the principal and interest due thereunder shall be

payment obligations under either Credit Agreement are automatically
stayed as a result of the Bankruptcy Petitions, and the creditors'
rights of enforcement in respect of either Credit Agreement are
subject to the applicable provisions of the Bankruptcy Code and
orders of the Bankruptcy Court.

The filing of the Bankruptcy Petitions also constituted an event of
default that terminated all commitments of the lenders under the
Credit Agreement, dated as of June 4, 2015 (as amended, amended and
restated, supplemented or otherwise modified from time to time
prior to the date hereof, the "Foreign ABL Credit Agreement") among

company (Gesellschaft mit beschrankter Haftung) existing under the
laws of Germany ("Avaya Deutschland"), Avaya GMBH & CO. KG, a
limited partnership (GmbH & Co. KG) existing under the laws of
Germany ("Avaya KG", and together with Avaya Deutschland, the
"German Borrowers", and the German Borrowers together with the U.K.
Borrower, the Irish Borrower and the Canadian Borrower, the
"Borrowers"), the foreign guarantors from time to time party
thereto, Citibank, N.A., as administrative agent, each lender from
time to time party thereto and the other parties from time to time
party thereto.

The filing of the Bankruptcy Petitions constitutes an event of
default that accelerated the Company's obligations under the
Company's (i) 10.50% Senior Secured Notes due 2021, issued pursuant
to the Indenture, dated as of March 7, 2013, between the Company,
the guarantors party thereto and The Bank of New York Mellon Trust
Company, N.A., as trustee and notes collateral agent (the "2013
Indenture"), (ii) 9.00% Senior Secured Notes due 2019, issued
pursuant to the Indenture, dated as of December 21, 2012, between
the Company, the guarantors party thereto and The Bank of New York
Mellon Trust Company, N.A., as trustee and notes collateral agent
(the "2012 Indenture"), and (iii) 7.00% Senior Secured Notes due
2019, issued pursuant to the Indenture, dated as of February 11,
2011, between the Company, the guarantors party thereto and The

The Indentures provide that as a result of the Bankruptcy
Petitions, all unpaid principal and interest due thereunder shall
be immediately due and payable. Any efforts to enforce such payment
obligations under the Indentures are automatically stayed as a
result of the Bankruptcy Petitions, and the creditors' rights of
enforcement in respect of the Indentures are subject to the
applicable provisions of the Bankruptcy Code.

AVAYA INC: Reports Q4 and Fiscal Year 2016 Financial Results
------------------------------------------------------------
Avaya Inc. reported a net loss of $505 million on $958 million of
revenue for the three months ended Sept. 30, 2016, compared to a
net loss of $76 million on $1 billion of revenue for the three
months ended Sept. 30, 2015.

For the fiscal year ended Sept. 30, 2016, the Company reported a
net loss of $750 million on $3.70 billion of revenue compared to a
net loss of $144 million on $4.08 billion of revenue for the fiscal
year ended Sept. 30, 2015.

Total revenue for the fourth quarter was $958 million, up $76
million compared to the prior quarter as demand improved for
products and services, and decreased $50 million year-over-year,
due to lower demand for unified communications hardware.  GAAP
gross margin was 60.9% for the fourth quarter.  Non-GAAP gross
margin was 61.8%, which compares to 62.4% for the prior quarter and
62.0% for the fourth quarter of 2015.  GAAP operating loss was $428
million, reflecting $542 million of impairment of goodwill and
intangibles.  Non-GAAP operating income was $229 million which
compares to $180 million for the prior quarter and $202 million for
the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015.  For the quarter, adjusted
EBITDA was $284 million or 29.6% of revenue, which compares to
adjusted EBITDA of $223 million or 25.3% for the prior quarter, and
$246 million or 24.4% for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2015.

For fiscal 2016, Avaya reported revenue of $3,702 million, down 9%
compared to fiscal 2015, or down 8% in constant currency.  GAAP
gross margin for fiscal 2016 was 60.6%.  Non-GAAP gross margin was
a record 61.5%.  GAAP operating loss was $262 million, reflecting
$542 million of impairment of goodwill and intangibles.  Non-GAAP
operating income was $756 million in fiscal 2016 compared to $718
million in fiscal 2015.  Fiscal 2016 adjusted EBITDA of $940
million represented a record 25.4% of revenue, and was $40 million
higher compared to fiscal 2015.  Cash flow from operations was $113
million and free cash flow was $17 million for fiscal year 2016,
reflecting one-time payments of approximately $82 million for a
legal settlement and advisory fees.  Cash and cash equivalents
totaled $336 million as of Sept. 30, 2016, an increase of $67
million from the prior quarter and up $13 million from fourth
quarter 2015.

As of Sept. 30, 2016, Avaya Inc. had $5.82 billion in total assets,
$10.24 billion in total liabilities and a total stockholders'
deficiency of $4.42 million.

"Avaya's fourth fiscal quarter results reflect the strength of our
technology portfolio, with major competitive wins at government
agencies and enterprise customers across networking, contact center
and private cloud services underpinned by continued transformation
of the company to a superior operating model," said Kevin Kennedy,
president and CEO.

"Revenue and adjusted EBITDA exceeded the high end of our
preliminary stated range," continued Mr. Kennedy.  "In constant
currency, contact center and networking revenue increased double
digit percentages from both the prior quarter and year-over-year,
while unified communications products declined year-over-year and
grew sequentially.  Non-GAAP operating income as a percentage of
revenue and adjusted EBITDA as a percentage of revenue reached new
records for the company for both the quarter and full year 2016
driven by lower operating expenses.  Our strategic roadmap is being
well received as customers are upgrading to our newest platforms
due to our industry leadership position and outstanding customer
service as witnessed by Avaya's fourth quarter Net Promoter Score
of 58.  As mentioned in our press release today, the decision to
restructure through a chapter 11 process reflects the company's
debt structure, as opposed to the strength of Avaya's operations
and business model.  Looking forward, we remain committed to
improving our operating performance and capital structure while
creating value for our customers."

In April 2016, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services owered its
corporate credit rating on Avaya Inc. to 'CCC' from 'B-'.

In August 2016, Moody's Investors Service downgraded Avaya, Inc.'s
Corporate Family Rating to 'Caa2' from 'Caa1'.  The 'Caa2'
Corporate Family Rating reflects Avaya's very high leverage
(approximately 9x as of June 30, 2016) and concerns about the
sustainability of the capital structure including its ability to
refinance 2017/2018 debt maturities and the likelihood of a near
term restructuring.


AVAYA INC: S&P Lowers CCR to 'D' on Voluntary Ch. 11 Petition
-------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said it lowered its corporate credit rating on
Santa Clara, Calif.-based Avaya Inc. to 'D' from 'CCC.

Avaya filed voluntary petitions for relief under Chapter 11 of the
U.S. Bankruptcy Code on Jan. 19, 2017.

At the same time, S&P lowered its issue-level rating on the
company's senior secured (second priority) term loans and notes to
'D' from 'CCC+'.  The '2' recovery rating is unchanged, indicating
S&P's expectation for substantial recovery (70%-90%; lower half of
the range) of principal for debtholders in the event of a payment
default.

S&P also lowered its issue-level rating on Avaya's second-lien
(third priority) notes to 'D' from 'CCC-'.  The '5' recovery rating
is unchanged, indicating S&P's expectation for modest recovery
(10%-30%; lower half of the range) of principal for the debtholders
in the event of a payment default.

"The 'D' rating reflects Avaya Inc.'s Chapter 11 bankruptcy
filing," said S&P Global Ratings credit analyst John Moore.

Avaya plans to continue to operate while it develops a
reorganization plan and expects that it will emerge from bankruptcy
later in 2017.


AVERY LAND: Plan Filing Period Extended Through March 23
--------------------------------------------------------
Judge August B. Landis of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Nevada extended the periods during which only Avery
Land Group, LLC may file a chapter 11 plan and solicit acceptances
to such plan, through March 23, 2017 and May 22, 2017,
respectively.  

The Troubled Company Reporter had earlier reported that the Debtor
sought for an exclusivity extension contending that only until the
deadline for filing proofs of claim has passed on Jan. 11, 2017 and
the results of the Utica and Tiger auction sales are known will the
Debtor be in a position to meaningfully assess how far down the
waterfall the equity cushion realized by said sales goes and by how
much it needs to augment that realized cushion by various other
plan funding devices, rather than awaiting a confirmation order for
approval thereof as means of plan execution.

The Debtor also related that its Motion for Order Authorizing Sale
of Equipment Subject to Master Lease Agreement With Utica Leaseco,
LLC had been set for hearing on January 4, 2017.  The Debtor
further relates that its Application to Employ and Compensate Tiger
Capital Group, LLC and Rabin Worldwide, Inc., as Auctioneers and
Motion for Order Authorizing Sale of Equipment and Related Assets
had been set for hearing on December 29, 2016.

AZURE MIDSTREAM: Waiver Pact Requires Sale of Assets by Jan. 30
---------------------------------------------------------------
Azure Midstream Partners, LP, entered into a Limited Duration
Waiver Agreement to its revolving credit facility, as amended, with
Wells Fargo Bank, National Association, as administrative agent and
other lenders, on Jan. 13, 2017.

The terms of the Limited Duration Waiver Agreement extend the
waiver of certain covenant defaults until Jan. 30, 2017.  Borrowing
capacity under the Credit Agreement continues to be $173.7 million.
The Limited Duration Waiver Agreement also requires the
Partnership to enter into an agreement with respect to the sale of
the Partnership and its assets no later than Jan. 30, 2017.
  
                     About Azure Midstream

Azure Midstream Partners, LP, is a publicly traded Delaware master
limited partnership that was formed by NuDevco Partners, LLC and
its affiliates to develop, own, operate and acquire midstream
energy assets.  The Company currently offers: (i) natural gas
gathering, compression, dehydration, treating, processing, and
hydrocarbon dew-point control and transportation services to
producers, marketers and third-party pipeline companies through the
Company's gathering and processing business segment; and (ii) crude
oil logistics services to Associated Energy Services, LP, an
affiliate, through its logistics business segment.

Azure reported a net loss of $222.42 million for the year ended
Dec. 31, 2015, compared to a net loss of $6.82 million for the year
ended Dec. 31, 2014.

As of Sept. 30, 2016, the Company had $375.5 million in total
assets, $179.4 million in total liabilities and $196.2 million in
total partners' capital.

KPMG LLP, in Dallas, Texas, issued a "going concern" qualification
on the consolidated financial statements for the year ended
Dec. 31, 2015, citing that the Partnership anticipates being out of
compliance with the requirements in the Credit Agreement during
2016, which would accelerate the maturity of the outstanding
indebtedness making it currently due and payable.  The Partnership
does not have sufficient liquidity to meet the accelerated debt
service requirements.  This issue raises substantial doubt about
its ability to continue as a going concern, the auditors said.

                         *    *    *

In September 2016, S&P Global Ratings lowered its corporate credit
rating on Azure Midstream Energy LLC to 'CCC+' from 'B-'.  "The
downgrade reflects our view that Azure's credit measures have
worsened due to unfavorable commodity prices and weak industry
conditions, which has made it more challenging to meet its
financial commitments," S&P Global Ratings analyst Mike Llanos
said.

In August 2016, Moody's Investors Service downgraded Azure
Midstream Energy's Corporate Family Rating (CFR) to 'Caa2' from
'B3', Probability of Default Rating (PDR) to 'Caa2-PD' from
'Caa1-PD', senior secured term loan rating to 'Caa2' from 'B3', and
the senior secured revolving credit facility rating to 'B1' from
'Ba3'.  The Speculative Grade Liquidity rating was withdrawn.  The
outlook remains negative.

BENNU TITAN: Ch.11 Trustee Wants Parent's Cases Moved to Del.
-------------------------------------------------------------
Vince Sullivan, writing for Bankruptcy Law360, reported that the
Chapter 11 trustee in the case of Bennu Titan LLC told a Delaware
bankruptcy judge that the liquidation cases of Bennu Titan's parent
company should be transferred to Delaware from Texas in the
interest of justice and judicial economy.  During a hearing in
Wilmington, trustee attorney William Sullivan, Esq., at Sullivan
Hazeltine & Allinson LLC told the court that it makes sense to
bring the Chapter 7 cases of Bennu Oil & Gas and its affiliates to
Delaware.

In an earlier report, Bankruptcy Law360's Mr. Sullivan said the
Chapter 11 trustee pointed out that Bennu Titan's case was filed
first.

Wilmington Trust, National Association, Sojitz Energy Venture,
Inc., Hornbeck Offshore Services, LLC, Harvey Gulf International
Marine, LLC, have objected to the Trustee's request to transfer
venue of the Chapter 7 cases.

Bennu Oil & Gas, LLC and affiliates filed voluntary Chapter 7
petitions (Bankr. S.D. Tex. Case No. 16-35930) on Nov. 30, 2016.
The Hon. David R. Jones presides over the case.   The Chapter 7

Jess Krochtengel, writing for Bankruptcy Law360, reported that
Bennu Oil and Gas, a 3-year-old company focused on offshore
production in the Gulf of Mexico, said in court filings it has
about $32.5 million in assets, and a total of $727 million in
liabilities.  The bulk of that -- $495 million -- is owed to
creditors whose claims are secured by property, it said.  There's
also less than $300,000 in priority unsecured claims and about $229
million in non-priority unsecured claims.

In June 2016, Moody's Investors Service affirmed Bill Barrett
Corporation's 'Caa2' Corporate Family Rating and revised the
Probability of Default Rating to 'Caa2-PD/LD' from 'Caa2-PD.'
"Bill Barrett's debt for equity exchange achieved some reduction in
its overall debt burden, but the company's cash flow and leverage
metrics continue to remain challenged as its hedges roll off in
2017," commented Amol Joshi, Moody's vice president.

In July 2016, S&P Global Ratings raised the corporate credit rating
on Bill Barrett to 'B-' from 'SD'.  The rating outlook is negative.
"The upgrade reflects our reassessment of the company's corporate
credit rating following the debt-for-equity exchange of its 7.625%
senior unsecured notes due 2019, and also reflects our expectation
that there will be no further distressed exchanges over the next 12
months," said S&P Global Ratings credit analyst Kevin Kwok.


BJORNER ENTERPRISES: Unsecureds to be Paid in Full in One Year
--------------------------------------------------------------
Bjorner Enterprises, Inc., said in its latest disclosure statement
that all payments on general unsecured claims will be paid in full
no later than one year from the effective date of its Chapter 11
plan.

The initial disclosure statement proposed to pay dividends on
unsecured claims in semi-annual installments commencing six months
from the effective date of the plan.  It also disclosed that
unsecured claims will be paid in full in three years.

According to the latest document, the company's management is given
until July 1 to obtain a bona fide offer to purchase the property
located along Madrona Avenue, St. Helena, California, at a price
sufficient to pay all creditors in full, and another 60 days to
close the deal.

If Bjorner fails to meet either of those milestones, a liquidating
trustee will be appointed to assume complete control of the
marketing.  The trustee will be given another six months to close a
sale.  

Pending payoff, creditor claims will continue to accrue interest,
according to the disclosure statement filed on Jan. 12 with the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of California.

BONANZA CREEK: Gets 'Unsolicited' Inquiry From Bill Barrett
-----------------------------------------------------------
Bonanza Creek Energy, Inc., announced that it received an
unsolicited inquiry from Bill Barrett Corporation regarding a
potential transaction between the Company and Bill Barrett.

The Company said that from time to time, it receives unsolicited
inquiries from third parties regarding potential transactions
involving or relating to the Company's assets.  

Following the Company and its subsidiaries' commencement of Chapter
11 bankruptcy cases, and the announcement of its prepackaged plan
of reorganization, the Company anticipated that it might receive
additional, similar unsolicited inquiries during the pendency of
the Chapter 11 cases.

Consistent with the Company's obligations as a debtor-in-
possession in the Chapter 11 cases, the Company agreed to review
the potential transaction proposed by Bill Barrett in its
unsolicited inquiry and entered into a confidentiality agreement
with Bill Barrett on Jan. 16, 2017.  

On Jan. 17, 2017, Bill Barrett disclosed the existence of, and the
fact that the Company entered into, the Confidentiality Agreement
in a Form 8-K filed with the SEC.  The Company said it was given no
prior notice that Bill Barrett intended to file the Bill Barrett
Form 8-K, and the Company views the filing of the Bill Barrett Form
8-K as a violation of the terms of the Confidentiality Agreement.
In keeping with the agreement it made with Bill Barrett pursuant to
the Confidentiality Agreement, the Company does not intend to
publicly comment further on this matter at this time, and no party
should presume that the Company's failure to comment further on
this matter is an indication of the Company's position with respect
to the unsolicited inquiry it received from Bill Barrett.

BUMI RESOURCES: Seeks Ch.15 Recognition of Indonesian Case
----------------------------------------------------------
Martin O'Sullivan, writing for Bankruptcy Law360, reported that PT
Bumi Resources Tbk, an Indonesian coal miner, petitioned a
Manhattan bankruptcy court for Chapter 15 recognition to stop
bondholders from potentially disrupting its efforts to reorganize
$4.2 billion in debt in Indonesian courts.

Bumi in January 2015 was granted Chapter 15 protection in New York
for restructuring proceedings in Singaporean court following a
series of debt defaults, but those cases were discontinued in 2016.


According to the report, Bumi Chief Financial Officer Andrew C.
Beckham on Friday said that the company had entered similar
proceedings in Indonesia.


CABLE ONE: Moody's Affirms Ba3 CFR & Lowers Notes Rating to B2
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service affirmed Cable One, Inc.'s (Cable One)
Ba3 corporate family rating (CFR) and Ba3 probability of default
rating (PD) following the company's announcement to acquire
Telecommunications Management, LLC (NewWave) for approximately $735
million, including debt. Moody's also downgraded the company's
unsecured rating to B2 from B1, as the company is expected to raise
a significant amount of secured debt to finance the acquisition,
which will rank ahead of the company's $450 million unsecured
notes. The company's speculative grade liquidity rating is changed
to SGL-1, from SGL-2 .The stable outlook is stable.

Issuer: Cable One, Inc.

Downgrades:

  Senior Unsecured Regular Bond/Debenture due 2022, Downgraded to
  B2 (LGD5) from B1 (LGD4)

Affirmations:

  Probability of Default Rating, Affirmed Ba3-PD

  Corporate Family Rating, Affirmed Ba3

Upgrades:

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

Outlook Actions:

  Outlook, Remains Stable

RATINGS RATIONALE

The proposed transaction by Cable One values NewWave at
approximately 12.3x pre-synergy EBITDA. "We expect leverage to rise
to just over 3x (Moody's adjusted) pro forma for the transaction,
declining to the mid 2 times by the end of 2017. The company
expects to achieve around $25 million in annual cost synergies,
which lowers the acquisition multiple to about 8.7x. We believe the
acquisition makes strategic sense for Cable One as NewWave has
similar penetration levels on its video product, a service offering
Cable One has consciously attempted to move away from. This should
allow Cable One to implement its unique, video-lite business model
to NewWave's existing footprint. We still expect high speed data
and business services to continue to be a growth driver for the
company," Moody's said.

The stable outlook reflects Moody's expectation that Cable One will
grow EBITDA in the low single digit percentage range and maintain
positive free cash flow. Moody's also expects leverage to remain
below 4x (Moody's adjusted). If revenue growth from HSD and
commercial services is not realized, leverage and cash flow targets
necessary to sustain a Ba3 rating would likely be tightened.

Moody's could consider an upgrade is leverage remained comfortably
below 3.0x (Moody's adjusted). An upgrade would also be conditional
on good liquidity. Moody's could be downgraded if leverage is
sustained above 4.0x (Moody's adjusted). A downgrade could also
occur if liquidity were to deteriorate.

Headquartered in Phoenix, AZ, Cable One, Inc. offers traditional
and advanced video services including digital television,
video-on-demand, high-definition television, as well as high-speed
Internet access and phone service. Pro forma for the acquisition of
NewWave, Cable One will have 416 thousand video subscribers, 615
thousand high-speed data subscribers, and 141 thousand telephony
subscribers. Pro forma revenue for the last twelve months ended
September 30 was approximately $1 billion.


CARTER REESE: Selling Sinking Spring Parcels for $960K
------------------------------------------------------
Carter P. and Sarah C. Reese ask the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Eastern District of Pennsylvania to authorize the sale of two
parcels of land in Sinking Spring, Pennsylvania, to Forrest and
Barbara Stricker, and Matthew and Alissa Grove.

A hearing on the Motion is set for Feb. 18, 2017 at 9:30 a.m.

The respondents are: (i) the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, through
its Department of Agriculture, Bureau of Farmland Preservation ("PA
Bureau"); (ii) the County of Berks, Pennsylvania, through its Berks
County Agricultural Land Preservation Board ("Berks Ag Board");
(iii) PNC Bank, NA; and (iv) Meridian Bank.

The Debtors are the owners of certain real estate known as and
located at 140 Evans Hill Road, Sinking Spring, Pennsylvania, also
known as the Westerly Tract (PIN#: 4387-01-05-1099) containing
approximately 130 acres, approximately 120 of which are subject to
a certain Agricultural Conservation Easement ("Ag Easement") in
favor of Respondents.

The Debtors have proposed a subdivision of the property that will
enable them to sell approximately 76 acres to the current owner of
an adjacent 56 acre parcel recently purchased from the Debtors, as
well as creating two residual lots of approximately 28, Residual
Parcel A, and approximately 31 acres, Residual Parcel B
("Subdivision Plan").

On Sept. 21, 2015, the Board of Supervisors of Lower Heidelberg
Township approved the Subdivision Plan subject to certain
conditions including the requirement that the Berks Ag Board be
provided with the plan.  The Berks Ag Board has indicated that the
proposed subdivision and sale of Residual Parcel B will require the
Debtors to remove of 31 acres of hardwood trees and to convert
those acres into tillable crop land in order to meet its current
regulations; and, further indicates that if the Debtors fail to
comply with these regulations, it will not approve the Subdivision
Plan.  The regulations relied upon by the Berks Ag Board were
enacted subsequent to the grant of the Ag Easement which
specifically defines crops to include "timber, wood, and other wood
products derived from trees."

The Debtors therefore believe that application of such regulation
to the property constitutes the imposition of an ex post facto law
which improperly and adversely effects the Debtors' interest in the
property and the Debtors therefore dispute the validity and extent
of Respondent PA Bureau and Berks AG Board's interest in the Real
property with respect to the burden that the regulations impose
upon the property.

Debtors have entered into two Agreements of Sale with respect to
the property both of which are contingent upon final approval and
recording of the Subdivision Plan: (i) the sale of the
approximately 76 acres to the Strickers for $760,000; and (ii) the
sale Residual Parcel B to the Groves for $200,000.

Although the Debtors have been able to significantly consummate
their confirmed plan, the Plan has not been fully or substantially
consummated due to the Debtors' inability to pay the administrative
expenses of the estate and to pay certain other secured debt; and,
the Debtors are therefore requesting that their plan be modified to
permit the sale of the real estate parcels identified and thereby
providing for substantial payment of the Debtors' remaining
obligations.

In order to complete the proposed sales pursuant to the confirmed
plan as required by 11 U.S.C. Section 1146(a) and to provide for
said sales free and clear of liens and encumbrances, the Debtors
are requesting that their confirmed plan be modified to permit said
sales subject only to and conditioned upon payment to PNC and
Meridian as well as the other identified creditors.

The property is subject to a first mortgage lien in favor of PNC
with an approximate principal balance of $2,500,000 and a second
mortgage lien in favor of Meridian with an approximate balance of
$308,000.

The fair market value of the residual property after the proposed
sales is estimated to be at least $3,500,000, which value will
adequately protect the residual lien positions of both PNC and
Meridian after the payments provided for.

The pending sales will enable the Debtors to substantially complete
the payments required under the confirmed chapter 11 plan and to
pay all administrative claims, thereby allowing the Debtors to
substantially consummate their confirmed bankruptcy plan, obtain a
final decree and to close the case.

The Debtors asks the Court to (i) modify their confirmed chapter 11
plan and approve the proposed sales as set forth in the Agreements
of Sale; (ii) fnd that the PA Bureau and Berks Ag Board may not use
their recently enacted regulations to require removal of the 31
acres of trees or to otherwise prevent the Debtors from selling the
Real Estate; (iv) provide that a copy of the order granting the
Motion may be recorded in lieu of any approvals by the Berks Ag
Board required in order to record the Subdivision Plan; (v) modify
the Debtors' confirmed chapter 11 plan as provided; (vi) and
approve the sale of the parcels parcels free and clear of the PNC
and Meridian mortgage liens with the proceeds of the sales to be
paid and disbursed in accordance with the proposed disposition of
sale proceeds and the Debtors' confirmed Plan as modified.

sale proceeds attached to the Motion is available for free at:

CENTRAL AMERICA BOTTLING: S&P Affirms BB CCR; Outlook Still Stable
------------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said that it affirmed its 'BB' long-term global
scale corporate credit and debt ratings on The Central America
Bottling Corp. (CBC).  The outlook on the corporate credit rating
remains stable.

At the same time, S&P assigned its 'BB' issue-level ratings to the
company's proposed 10-year $500 million and 7-10 year $75 million
equivalent in PEN senior unsecured notes.

The rating affirmation reflects S&P's view that, despite higher
debt levels than S&P's previous forecast, CBC's key credit metrics
will continue to be in line with S&P's financial risk profile
assessment.  S&P's understanding is that the company will use the
proceeds from the proposed $575 million bond issuances to refinance
its $300 million senior unsecured notes while using the remaining
amount to fund growth opportunities in the region, including
potential acquisitions.  However, S&P anticipates CBC will maintain
a debt–to-EBITDA ratio below 3x and EBITDA interest coverage
above 3x.  Moreover, CBC could benefit from expanding its
production capacity, mainly in Guatemala and Honduras, to continue
supporting the launch of new products and formats in these
markets.

S&P's business risk profile assessment on CBC incorporates its
leading position in the Central America and the Caribbean
carbonated soft drink market, supported by its renowned product
portfolio and wide distribution network that reaches over 600
points of sale.  CBC has strategic alliances with PepsiCo and
AmBev, which provide perpetual exclusive rights to distribute and
sell its products in Central America.  Its strategic alliance with
PepsiCo also provides CBC with the right of first refusal to
purchase interest in any PepsiCo-affiliated company or bottler in
the region that is offered for sale.  Offsetting factors include
the company's exposure to countries with a high risk operating
environment, foreign currency fluctuations, and increased
competition.

CBC is reformatting its product portfolio and increasing prices in
an effort to offset margin pressures from regulatory tax
impositions in certain markets, as well as the effect of a strong
dollar in its cost structure given that more than 50% of its raw
materials are denominated in this currency.  Additionally, the
company holds long-term agreements with suppliers maintaining
certain raw material price stability.  In S&P's view, these
measures will allow CBC to maintain its EBITDA margin close to
13.5%, in line with the industry's average.

S&P expects CBC will continue posting key credit metrics in line
with S&P's financial risk profile assessment, even considering
additional debt following the proposed bonds' issuance.  Based on
CBC's growth prospects, historical moderate use of debt, and
expected cash balance, S&P believes the company will maintain debt
to EBITDA below 3x and EBITDA interest coverage above 3x.  For the
12 months ended Sept. 16, 2016, CBC's debt to EBITDA was 2x and
EBITDA interest coverage was 5.9x, in line with S&P's forecast.

S&P's base-case scenario assumes these factors for 2017 and 2018:

   -- Low- to mid-single-digit percent Central America GDP growth
      on average for 2017 and 2018, supporting a stable
      consumption for soft drink products in the region;

   -- Double-digit percent revenue growth for 2017 based on the
      company's investment plans, normalizing to low-single-digit
      percent revenue growth in 2018;

   -- Capital expenditures (capex) and other investments of nearly

      $380 million in 2017 and $80 million in 2018.  Investments
      are mainly related to potential acquisitions, modernization
      of its plants, launching of new products and coolers;

   -- Issuance of $575 million senior unsecured notes to refinance

      its existing $300 million senior unsecured notes due in
      2022.  Incremental debt is mainly to support growth
      opportunities in the region including potential
      acquisitions; and

   -- Dividend distributions to remain in line with previous
      years.

Based on these assumptions S&P arrives at these credit metrics for
2017 and 2018:

   -- EBITDA margins of about 13.5%;
   -- Debt to EBITDA below 3x;
   -- FFO to debt near 30%; and
   -- EBITDA interest coverage of about 4.5x.

S&P continues assess CBC's liquidity as adequate because S&P
forecasts that sources of liquidity will exceed uses by at least
1.2x over the next 12 months and that this ratio will remain above
1x even if EBITDA declines by 15%.

Principal liquidity sources:

   -- Cash and short-term investments of about $133 million as of
      September 2016;
   -- Funds from operations (FFO) of about $160 million for the
      next 12 months; and
   -- Net transaction inflow of $575 million dual-tranche
      (including $75 million equivalent in PEN).  Note that the
      proposed transactions will be conducted under a best-effort
      practice and thus, the final amount is subject to change.

Principal liquidity uses:

   -- Debt amortizations of about $320 million, which includes
      refinancing of its $300 million senior secured notes due in
      2022;

   -- Working capital outflows of about $25 million for the next
      12 months;

   -- Investments and capital expenditures in excess of
      $300 million for the next 12 months; and

   -- Dividend payments of about $40 million for the next 12
      months.

The early redemption of its existing notes due in 2022 and most of
the investments, including capex, will be mainly funded with the
proceeds of the proposed bond issuances.

As of Sept. 30, 2016, CBC was in compliance with its incurrence
covenants, which consist of a total leverage ratio below 3x and a
fixed charge coverage ratio of more than 2.5x.  If CBC refinances
its notes, the proposed indentures will provide headroom for the
$275 million incremental debt that the company is seeking to obtain
from the proposed transaction, as the new notes consider a total
leverage ratio below 3.75x and a fixed charge coverage ratio of
more than 2x.

The stable outlook reflects S&P's view that CBC will maintain its
debt to EBITDA below 3x and EBITDA interest coverage close to 4.5x
for the next 12 months, despite incremental debt to fund its
investment plan, including potential acquisitions.  This, as S&P
expects steady top line growth while EBITDA margins remain close to
13.5%, supported by an effective pricing and commercial strategy.

S&P could lower the ratings if CBC's growth strategy and capex
result in a higher than anticipated use of debt, eroding the
company's credit metrics, leading to debt to EBITDA above 3x and
EBITDA interest coverage below 3x on a consistent basis.

Although unlikely in the next 12 months, S&P could raise the
ratings if CBC achieves stable revenue growth, coupled with
greater-than-expected improvement in its profitability metrics.
Such an improvement could result from higher margins realized from
synergies from its expansion plans, leading to debt to EBITDA
trending below 2x and EBITDA interest coverage above 6x.  An
upgrade would also be subject to S&P's assessment of CBC's
performance under a simulated scenario of Guatemala's default.


CENTRAL AMERICAN BOTTLING: Moody's Rates $575MM Unsec. Notes Ba2
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a Ba2 rating to Central American
Bottling Corporation's (CBC) senior unsecured notes for an amount
of $575 million. At the same time, Moody's affirmed CBC's corporate
family and senior unsecured Ba2 ratings. The outlook is stable.

Under the proposed transaction CBC will issue two tranches: a
10-year $500 million tranche and a 7-10 year $75 million equivalent
tranche denominated in Peruvian Soles. Proceeds will be used to
refinance existing debt and for general corporate purposes. The
notes will be irrevocably and unconditionally guaranteed by all
CBC's material operating subsidiaries representing almost 100% of
the company's assets, revenues, and cash flows.

RATINGS RATIONALE

"The Ba2 ratings reflect CBC's adequate credit metrics and
liquidity, its solid market position in its territories of
operation, its ample soft beverage product portfolio, its
geographic diversification, and its relationship with PepsiCo
through a 12% stake and two seats on the board." said Alonso
Sanchez, a Vice President at Moody's. Also incorporated in the
ratings are CBC's relatively small scale as compared with other
industry peers, its presence in some riskier markets, and the
ongoing event risk given the company's strategy to grow through
acquisitions.

CBC has been able to maintain adequate credit metrics despite
economic downturns, adverse weather conditions, strong competition
and acquisitions. The company has reduced leverage (Moody's adj.
debt/EBITDA) to 2.8 times as of September 2016 down from 3.6 times
as of December 2014, when it peaked, through debt reduction and
higher EBITDA. While additional debt from the proposed issuance
will increase leverage slightly over one turn, Moody's estimats
CBC's adj. debt/EBITDA will decline below 3.3 times by year-end
2017 and below 3 times by year-end 2018 as the company pays down
debt and generates higher EBITDA. CBC's adj. EBIT/interest expense
was 3.3 times over the twelve months ended September 2016 (vs. 3.2
times in 2015 and 2.3 times in 2014).

The company holds strong market positions in its carbonated soft
drinks (CSD) category which accounts for around 51% of consolidated
revenues. In this category, CBC has a #1 market share in Guatemala
and Jamaica, which account for 34% and 7%, respectively, of
revenues of the CSD category. The company has a #2 market share in
Ecuador, Honduras, Puerto Rico, Peru, and El Salvador which
represent 50% of total CSD's revenues.

CBC has a longstanding relationship with PepsiCo, Inc (A1 stable)
which dates back to 1942. In 1998 CBC was named Pepsi's "Anchor
Bottler" for Central America and as of today, PepsiCo has a 12%
stake in CBC and two members in its board of directors. "We note
that the "Anchor Bottler" designation expresses PepsiCo's view that
CBC is recognized as an important bottler and will be first in line
for consolidation opportunities in the region, but it does not
imply explicit support from PepsiCo other than shared marketing
expenses as provided in their agreements. Therefore, the ratings
assigned do not consider any uplift due to implicit support from
PepsiCo. However, we view Pepsi's active participation in CBC's
operations as a credit strength in terms of brand, as well as
corporate governance and business practices," Moody's said.

CBC has adequate liquidity. As of September 30, 2016, CBC reported
cash on hand of $133 million that can cover 1.5 times its
short-term debt. The company has over $100 million in committed
credit facilities, which are fully available, and advised lines of
credit of another $130 million that uses to cover seasonal working
capital requirements. In 2017 capital expenditures of $110 million
directed mostly towards Peru will reduce CBC's free cash flow
(defined as cash from operation minus dividends minus capex) to
around $40 million. In 2018-2019, free cash flow will increase
above $100 million as capex declines to around $80 million per year
and dividends remain in the $30 million per year range.

The stable outlook incorporates an expected modest improvement in
profitability, positive free cash flow generation, and a gradual
reduction in leverage over the next couple of years.

An upgrade could be triggered as a result of an increase in the
company's size while maintaining Debt/EBITDA below 2.5 times. In
addition, the company would need to generate higher free cash flow
and/or reduce debt such that Free Cash Flow/Debt is at least 15% on
a sustained basis.

A downgrade could be triggered if credit metrics deteriorate
materially, for example as a result of an acquisition, or due to
negative results in the markets in which CBC operates. EBIT margin
lower than 5%, Debt/EBITDA above 4.5 times or Retained Cash
Flow/Net Debt sustained below 12% could lead to a downgrade.

Headquartered in Guatemala City, Guatemala, Central American
Bottling Corp. is the "Anchor Bottler" of PepsiCo, Inc. for Central
America since 1998. With over 621,000 points of sale, the company
operates in Guatemala, Ecuador, El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua,
Puerto Rico, and Jamaica. CBC has a wide product portfolio
including carbonated soft drinks, juices and nectars, isotonic and
energy drinks, water, and tea. In addition, CBC distributes Brahva
and Extra beer brands in Guatemala, El Salvador, Honduras and
Nicaragua through a joint venture with Ambev. CBC is majority owned
and controlled by the Castillo family through an 82.5% stake. The
balance is owned by PepsiCo (12%) and by Grupo Estrada (5.5%). CBC
reported revenues of USD1.6 billion over the twelve months ended
September 2016.


CS MINING: Has Final OK on $2.65-Mil. Tailings DIP Loan, Cash Use
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Judge William T. Thurman of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Utah authorized CS Mining, LLC to enter into additional
$2.65 million postpetition financing with the Tailings DIP Lenders:
Wellington Financing Partners, LLC, St. Cloud Capital Partners II,
L.P. and Oxbow Carbon, LLC.

DASEKE INC: S&P Assigns 'B+' CCR & Rates $250MM Loan 'BB-'
----------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said that it has assigned its 'B+' corporate
credit rating to Texas-based trucking and logistics company Daseke
Inc.  The outlook is stable.

Daseke has proposed raising a $250 million secured senior term loan
and a $100 million delayed draw term loan to refinance its existing
debt and fund the company's acquisition strategy.

At the same time, S&P assigned its 'BB-' issue-level rating and '2'
recovery rating to the company's proposed $250 million secured term
loan and $100 million delayed draw term loan due 2024.  The '2'
recovery rating indicates S&P's expectation for substantial
(70%-90%; lower end of the range) recovery in the event of a
payment default.

"Our ratings on Daseke reflect the company's participation in the
highly fragmented, cyclical, and capital-intensive trucking
industry," said S&P Global credit analyst Michael Durand. "Daseke
provides open-deck specialty trucking services in the U.S., Canada,
and Mexico."  Over the next couple of years, S&P believes that
Daseke's trucking volumes will increase gradually, supported by
moderate U.S. economic growth.  The ratings also reflect S&P's
belief that management's current acquisition strategy will allow
the company to maintain credit measures that are commensurate with
our rating.

The stable outlook on Daseke reflects S&P's belief that the company
will maintain a leverage metric of less than 4x and a funds from
operations (FFO)-to-debt ratio of more than 20%, which is
consistent with S&P's expectations for the rating, as it pursues
accretive acquisitions over the next year.

S&P could lower its rating on Daseke if it were to make large
debt-financed acquisitions beyond S&P's expectations, or if a poor
operating performance caused its FFO-to-debt ratio to approach 12%
for a sustained period.

Although unlikely over the next 12 months, S&P could raise its
rating on Daseke if the company develops a stable track record
running its existing assets while successfully integrating
potential acquisitions and maintaining or improving its operating
performance.  Specifically, S&P could raise its ratings on the
company if it operates successfully while maintaining a FFO-to-debt
ratio of more than 25% and a debt-to-EBITDA metric of less than
3.5x on a sustained basis.

S&P Global Ratings said that its 'B' issue-level rating and '3'
recovery rating on the first-lien credit facility issued by
Electrical Components International Inc., a subsidiary of
St. Louis-based ECI Holdco Inc., are unchanged following ECI's

EDWARD JACOBY: Selling Residential Property in Galva
----------------------------------------------------
Edward M. Jacoby and Billy G. Coffey ask the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
for the Central District of Illinois to authorize the sale of
residential real estate located at 402 Swank Street, Galva,
Illinois.

The Debtors have received an offer to purchase said real estate.

Community State Bank of Galva holds a mortgage on said property.
Community State Bank has indicated a willingness to release its
mortgage in order to facilitate such sale, while retaining its
claim against Debtors for the underlying debt.

Sale of said property would not impair the interests of their
unsecured creditors, and might possibly benefit the unsecured
creditors by relieving the Debtors of expenses connected with the
property.  Accordingly, the Debtors ask the Court to approve the
sale of their residential property.

The Chapter 11 case is In re EDWARD M. JACOBY and BILLY G. COFFEY,
JR. (Bankr. C.D. Ill. Case No. 16-81369).

FUNCTION(X) INC: In Default Under $4.4 Million Conv. Debentures
---------------------------------------------------------------
As reported on Function(x) Inc.'s Current Report on Form 8-K filed
with the Securities and Exchange Commission on July 13, 2016, on
July 12, 2016, the Company closed a private placement of $4,444,444
principal amount of convertible debentures and common stock
purchase warrants.  The Debentures and Warrants were issued
pursuant to a Securities Purchase Agreement, dated July 12, 2016,
by and among the Company and certain accredited investors within
the meaning of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended.

Upon the closing of the Private Placement, the Company received
gross proceeds of $4,000,000 before placement agent fees and other
expenses associated with the transaction.  The Company used the net
proceeds from the transaction for general business and working
capital purposes.

The Company is currently in default under the Debentures issued in
the Private Placement for failure to make certain amortization
payments and for failure to maintain the Minimum Cash Reserve.

The Company is currently in negotiations with holders of
approximately 87% of the Debentures in order to permit the Company
to pay the holders the outstanding principal balance in cash and to
pay any accrued interest and other amounts owed in shares of the
Company's common stock.

Pursuant to the terms of the Debentures, the failure to cure the
non-payment of amortization or failure to maintain the Minimum Cash
Reserve within three trading days after the due date constituted an
Event of Default.  Following the occurrence of an event of default,
among other things:
  
    (1) at the Purchaser's election, the outstanding principal
        amount of the Debentures, plus accrued but unpaid
        interest, plus all interest that would have been earned
        through the one year anniversary of the original issue
        date if such interest has not yet accrued, liquidated
        damages and other amounts owed through the date of
        acceleration, shall become, immediately due and payable in
        either cash or stock pursuant to the terms of the
        Debentures; and

    (2) the interest rate on the Debentures will increase to the
        lesser of 18% or the maximum allowed by law.  

In addition to other remedies available to the Purchasers, the
Company's obligation to repay amounts due under the Debentures is
secured by a first priority security interest in and lien on all of
the Company's assets and property, including the Company's
intellectual property, and such remedies can be exercised by the
Purchasers without additional notice to the Company.

One debenture holder, holding approximately 13% of the principal
amount of the Debentures, has sent a notice of acceleration,
stating that the Company owes $696,000, reflecting the principal
amount of the Debenture plus interest through Nov. 1, 2016.
Interest will accrue at 18% until this amount is satisfied.

Under terms of the $3,000,000 Secured Convertible Note issued in
connection with the acquisition of Rant, a default under other
indebtedness owed by the Company constitutes a default under the
Rant Note.  As a result of such Event of Default, the holder of the
Rant Note has executed a waiver that provides that, until May 15,
2017, the events of default arising out of the failure to pay the
amounts due under the Debentures as of the date of the waiver and
the failure by the Company to maintain the Minimum Cash Reserve
will not constitute events of default for purposes of the Rant
Note.  As a result of the failure to make the January 2017
amortization payment to the Debenture holders, the Rant Note is
also in default, and such default is not covered by the foregoing
waiver.

GREAT BASIN: Note Buyers OK Release of $1.25M Restricted Funds
--------------------------------------------------------------
As previously disclosed on the current report on Form 8-K filed
with the Securities and Exchange Commission on June 29, 2016, on
June 29, 2016, Great Basin Scientific, Inc., entered into a
securities purchase agreement in relation to the issuance and sale
by the Company to certain buyers of $75 million aggregate principal
amount of senior secured convertible notes and related Series H
common stock purchase warrants.

On Jan. 18, 2017, the 2016 Note Buyers voluntarily removed
restrictions on the Company's use of an aggregate of approximately
$1.25 million previously funded to the Company and authorized the
release of those funds from the restricted accounts of the
Company.

On Jan. 18, 2017, the Company and certain 2016 Note Buyers holding
enough of the 2016 Notes and Series H Warrants to constitute the
required holders under Section 9(e) of the 2016 SPA and Section 19
of the 2016 Notes entered into separate agreements.  Pursuant to
the terms of the Amendment Agreements, all of the 2016 Notes were
amended to alter the leak-out provisions previously added to the
2016 Notes pursuant to the amendment agreements entered into
between the Company and the 2016 Note Buyers on Jan. 2, 2017, as
reported in the Company's Current Report on Form 8-K filed on Jan.
3, 2017.  

Prior to the Amendment Agreements, the 2016 Notes, provided that
during the period commencing on Jan. 3, 2017, and ending with close
of trading on Jan. 31, 2017, exclusive, no holder of 2016 Notes nor
any of its affiliates will sell, directly or indirectly, on any
trading day more than its pro rata percentage of 40% of the trading
volume of the Company's common stock, unless its common stock is
then trading above $2.50 (as adjusted for stock splits, stock
dividends, recapitalizations and similar events).

The Amendment Agreements amend the terms of the 2016 Notes to
extend the Prior Restricted Period to March 1, 2017, and change the
restriction percentage from 40% to the holders pro rata percentage
of 135% of the trading volume of the Company's common stock.

                       About Great Basin

Great Basin Scientific is a molecular diagnostic testing company
focused on the development and commercialization of its patented,
molecular diagnostic platform designed to test for infectious
disease, especially hospital-acquired infections.  The Company
believes that small to medium sized hospital laboratories, those
under 400 beds, are in need of simpler and more affordable
molecular diagnostic testing methods.  The Company markets a system
that combines both affordability and ease-of-use, when compared to
other commercially available molecular testing methods, which the
Company believes will accelerate the adoption of molecular testing
in small to medium sized hospitals.  The Company's system includes
an analyzer, which it provides for its customers' use without
charge in the United States, and a diagnostic cartridge, which the
Company sells to its customers.

As of Sept. 30, 2016, Great Basin had $83.40 million in total
assets, $144.9 million in total liabilities, and a total
stockholders' deficit of $61.47 million.

Mantyla McReynolds, LLC, in Salt Lake City, Utah, issued a "going
concern" opinion in its report on the consolidated financial
statements for the year ended Dec. 31, 2015, citing that the
Company has incurred substantial losses from operations causing
negative working capital and negative operating cash flows.  These
issues raise substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a
going concern.


GROVE PLAZA: Selling Ontario Properties for $8 Million
------------------------------------------------------
Grove Plaza Partners, LLC, asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Northern District of California to authorize the sale of real
properties located at 2522 S. Grove Avenue, Ontario, California
("Anchor Tenants"), (APN 1051-321-62), to Atlantic Santa Ana, LLC,
or its related assignee, for $6,700,000; and at 2506–2510 S.
Grove Avenue, Ontario, California ("Shops at Grove II"), (APN
1051-321-63), to Cheng Family Trustor, its related assignee, for
$1,398,000, subject to overbid.

A hearing on the Motion is set for Feb. 17, 2017 at 10:00 a.m.

The Debtor anticipates that in short order, the Court will enter an
order confirming the Combined Plan of Reorganization and Disclosure
Statement, dated Oct. 21, 2016.

The Plan provides Debtor with authority to sell certain real
property free and clear of liens.  Such properties are identified
in the Plan as well as the Supplemental Disclosure Regarding
Assessor's Parcel Numbers filed on Dec. 9, 2016 ("Supplemental
Disclosure").

These properties are:

   a. Anchor Tenants, APN 1051-321-62, with an approximate value of
$4,970,464.

   b. Molina Health, APN 1051-321-52, with an approximate value of
$1,569,620.

   c. Shop Space: (i) Shops at Grove I, APNs 1051-321-51 and
1051-321-55, with an approximate value of $2,652,963; (ii) Shops at
Grove II, APN 1051-321-63, with an approximate value of $1,385,157;
and (iii) Shops at Grove III, APN 1051-171-42, with an approximate
value of $2,959,769.

   d. Front Pad, APN 1051-171-44, with an approximate value of
$1,962,025.

The property to be sold consists of the Anchor Tenants parcel, and
the Shops at Grove II.  The Plan provides that Debtor will sell the
Anchor Tenants parcel for at least $4,970,646, and the proposed
sale is for $6,700,000, subject to higher and better bids.  The
Plan also provides that Debtor will sell the Shops at Grove II
parcel for at least $1,385,157, and the proposed sale is for
$1,398,000, subject to higher and better bids.  Hence, the Plan
requires the two parcels to be sold for the minimum aggregate
amount of $6,355,804, and Debtor proposes to sell the two parcels
for the aggregate amount of $8,098,000, or $1,742,196 above the
minimum aggregate amount.

By separate motion filed on Dec. 23, 2016, the Debtor seeks
authority to sell the Molina Health parcel and the Shops at Grove I
parcel for the aggregate amount of $4,225,000.  

The San Bernardino Tax Collector, Cantor Group II, LLC, Amor
Architectural Corp., JG Construction and Universal Site Services
("Secured Creditors") all assert liens against the Property and
other real property collateral, including postpetition charges and
fees, in the aggregate amount of approximately $14,656,145.  The
$2,847,301 of Cantor Group's claim is disputed, leaving undisputed
secured claims of $11,808,845.

When combined with the sales proposed by the Motion, the Debtor has
pending sales totaling $12,323,000.  After accounting for certain
discounts the Debtor anticipates receiving total sales proceeds of
$11,423,000 from the combined sales.  The Debtor anticipates
additional sales contracts will be executed in the next several
days and will move for approval of those sales at that time.

Atlantic Santa Ana has agreed to purchase the Anchor Tenants
parcels for the gross price of $6,700,000 and the Cheng Family
Trust has agreed to purchase the Shops at Grove II parcel for
$1,398,000.  Both sales are subject to higher and better bids.  

The material terms of the PSA for the Anchor Tenants parcel are:

   a. Atlantic Santa Ana, or its related assignee, will purchase
the Anchor Tenants parcel for the gross price of $6,700,000.

   b. The sale will close on Feb. 6, 2017, unless extended pursuant
to the terms of the agreement or order of the Court.

   c. The agreement provides for a due diligence period ending on
Feb. 5, 2017.  The agreement does not provide for a financing
contingency.  The agreement provides a $900,000 credit in escrow to

   d. Atlantic Santa Ana LLC has deposited $250,000 to escrow.  As
of the time of hearing, Atlantic Santa Ana will have deposited an
additional $250,000, for a total of $500,000.  Said deposits are
refundable only if: (1) the agreement is terminated prior to
removal of waiver of the contingencies provided in the PSA; or (2)
Atlantic Santa Ana is overbid and is not the successful bidder.

   e. Unpaid real property taxes will be pro-rated.  Escrow fees
will be split evenly between the buyer and seller.  All other
closing costs will be allocated in accordance with the custom and
practice prevailing in Riverside County.

The material terms of the PSA for the Shops at Grove II parcel
are:

   a. Cheng Family Trust, or its related assignee, will purchase
the Shops at Grove II parcel for the gross price of $1,398,000.

   b. The sale will close on Feb. 26, 2017, unless extended
pursuant to the terms of the agreement or order of the Court.

   c. The agreement provides for a due diligence period ending on
Feb. 6, 2017.  The agreement does not provide for a financing
contingency.

   d. Cheng Family Trust has deposited $50,000 to escrow.  Said
deposit is refundable only if: (1) the agreement is terminated
prior to removal of waiver of the contingencies provided in the
PSA; or (2) Cheng Family Trust is overbid and is not the successful
bidder.

   e. Unpaid real property taxes will be pro-rated.  Escrow fees
will be split evenly between the buyer and seller.  All other
closing costs will be allocated in accordance with the custom and
practice prevailing in Riverside County.

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

      http://bankrupt.com/misc/Grove_Plaza_184_Sales.pdf

The Debtor asks approval of the bidding and sale procedures.  The
Debtor may ask approval of such procedures in advance by way of
motion.

The material terms of the Bidding Procedures are:

   a. The auction will be held on Feb. 17, 2017, at 10:00 am, or at
another time or location if ordered by the Court and announced at
the aforesaid time and place.  

   b. At the time and place of auction, all bidders will present
the Debtor with evidence of funds or financing acceptable to Debtor
in an amount necessary to meet the initial bid plus the minimum
initial overbid amount ($6,750,000 for the Anchor Tenants parcel
and $1,448,000 for Shops at Grove II).

   c. The minimum initial overbid will be $50,000, and the minimum
amount of all subsequent bids shall be $50,000.

   d. Secured Creditors will be afforded any rights to credit bid
to which they are otherwise entitled under the Bankruptcy Code and
applicable law.

   e. The sale will be free and clear of all liens, claims and
encumbrances of the Secured Creditors.

   f. The sale will be on an "as is, where is," and "with all
faults" basis.

   g. If Atlantic Santa Ana or Cheng Family Trust, respectively,
are overbid and are not the successful bidder, all deposits by the
unsuccessful bidder will be refunded.

Marcus & Millichap Real Estate Investment Services represents the
Debtor exclusively.  Marcus & Millichap earns a commission of 4% of
the gross price of each sale.  The
Debtor asks approval of Marcus & Millichap's commission but does
not request authority to pay it, reserving payment in accordance
with the excerpt of the Plan quoted.  If the Anchor Tenants and
Shops at Grove II parcels are sold for the gross aggregate price of
$8,098,000, Marcus & Millichap's commission will be $323,920.

The Debtor asks a determination that Atlantic Santa Ana LLC and
Cheng Family Trust are good-faith buyers and are entitled to the
protections of Bankruptcy Code Section 363(m).  Prospective bidders
will be requested to provide a declaration in support of a finding
of good faith including those matters set forth at Item 5 of the
Court's Guidelines re Sale Orders, and the successful bidder should
be deemed a good faith purchaser within the meaning of Section
363(m) of the Bankruptcy Code.

The most likely alternative to the proposed sale is for Cantor
Group to foreclose its lien against the Debtor's real properties.
The Debtor expects that this would leave unsecured creditors with
no recovery.  The Debtor has determined that the proposed sale is
in the best interests of the estate.  Accordingly, the Debtor asks

HARVEST COMMUNITY: FDIC Named as Receiver; FCB Assumes Deposits
---------------------------------------------------------------
Harvest Community Bank, Pennsville, New Jersey, was closed Jan. 13,
2017, by the New Jersey Department of Banking and Insurance, which
appointed the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) as
receiver. To protect the depositors, the FDIC entered into a
purchase and assumption agreement with First-Citizens Bank & Trust
Company, Raleigh, North Carolina, to assume all of the deposits of
Harvest Community Bank.

According to the FDIC's statement, the four branches of Harvest
Community Bank will reopen as branches of First-Citizens Bank &
Trust Company during their normal business hours. Depositors of
Harvest Community Bank will automatically become depositors of
First-Citizens Bank & Trust Company. Deposits will continue to be
insured by the FDIC, so there is no need for customers to change
their banking relationship in order to retain their deposit
insurance coverage up to applicable limits. Customers of Harvest
Community Bank should continue to use their existing branch until
they receive notice from First-Citizens Bank & Trust Company that
it has completed systems changes to allow other First-Citizens Bank
& Trust Company branches to process their accounts as well.

Depositors of Harvest Community Bank can access their money by
writing checks or using ATM or debit cards. Checks drawn on the
bank will continue to be processed. Loan customers should continue
to make their payments as usual.

As of September 30, 2016, Harvest Community Bank had approximately
$126.4 million in total assets and $123.8 million in total
deposits. In addition to assuming all of the deposits of the failed
bank, First-Citizens Bank & Trust Company agreed to purchase
essentially all of the assets.


HEXION INC: Expects to Record Net Sales of $760 Million in Q4
-------------------------------------------------------------
Hexion Inc. announced preliminary results for the fourth quarter
and fiscal year ended Dec. 31, 2016.

The Company expects to record net sales of approximately $760
million, an operating loss of $(39) million to $(27) million and
Segment EBITDA of $65 million to $71 million in the fourth quarter
of 2016.  Hexion recorded net sales of $909 million, operating
income of $44 million and Segment EBITDA of $73 million in the
fourth quarter of 2015.  Included within Net Sales and Segment
EBITDA in the fourth quarter of 2015 was $78 million and $8
million, respectively, related to the Company's Performance
Adhesives, Powder Coatings, Additives & Acrylic Monomers business
and interest in HA-International, LLC, a joint venture, both of
which were disposed of in 2016.  Segment EBITDA is a non-GAAP
financial measure and is defined and reconciled to operating income
later in this release.

For fiscal year 2016, the Company expects to record net sales of
approximately $3.4 billion, operating income of $241 to $253
million, Segment EBITDA of $429 to $435 million and Adjusted EBITDA
of $431 to $441 million.  Included within Net Sales and Segment
EBITDA in 2016 was $185 million and $30 million, respectively,
related to PAC and HAI.  Hexion recorded net sales of $4.1 billion,
operating income of $260 million and Segment EBITDA of $466 million
in fiscal year 2015.  Included within Net Sales and Segment EBITDA
in 2015 was $369 million and $50 million, respectively, related to
PAC and HAI.

"We are pleased to report solid fundamental business performance in
the fourth quarter of 2016 and a strong year-end liquidity
position," said Craig O. Morrison, chairman, president and CEO. "On
a year-over-year basis, our results reflect gains in our Versatic
Acids and Derivatives and global forest products businesses, which
more than offset continued cyclicality in our oilfield business.
Our oilfield business has continued to recover from trough
conditions witnessed earlier this year and demonstrated solid
sequential volume growth and price stability. Going forward, we
believe we are well positioned for long-term growth driven by
strong secular growth trends in our leading specialty product
portfolio, a recovery of our oilfield and base epoxy businesses to
more normalized market conditions and the strategic capital
investments we have made to grow our revenues and enhance our cost
structure."

At Dec. 31, 2016, Hexion estimates that it had total debt of
approximately $3.5 billion compared to $3.8 billion at Dec. 31,
2015, and that it had approximately $180 million of unrestricted
cash and cash equivalents at year-end 2016.  Hexion also estimates
that it had liquidity of approximately $510 million as of Dec. 31,
2016, which is comprised of unrestricted cash and cash equivalents,
borrowings available under the Company's senior secured asset-based
revolving credit facility net of outstanding letters of credit, and
time drafts and availability under credit facilities at certain
international subsidiaries.

Hexion will issue a more detailed press release regarding its
fourth quarter and fiscal year 2016 results, and will file its
Annual Report on Form 10-K for the period ended Dec. 31, 2016, in
March, with an accompanying investor conference call to follow
shortly thereafter.

                          *     *     *

The TCR reported on Oct. 3, 2014, that Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services lowered its corporate credit rating on Momentive Specialty
by one notch to 'CCC+' from 'B-'.  "The downgrade follows MSC's
significant use of cash in the first half of 2014 and our
expectation that lackluster cash flow from operations and elevated
capital spending will cause free operating cash flow to be
significantly negative in 2014 and 2015," said Standard & Poor's
credit analyst Cynthia Werneth.

As reported by the TCR on Dec. 15, 2014, Moody's Investors Service
lowered the Corporate Family Rating of Momentive to 'Caa1' from
'B3'.  "Due to elevated leverage, heavy capital spending on new
capacity in 2014 and 2015, and the lack of meaningful improvement
in financial performance, Moody's have lowered Momentive
Specialty's rating," stated John Rogers, senior vice president at
Moody's.


HEXION INC: S&P Assigns 'CCC+' Rating on $460MM Sr. Sec. Notes
--------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said it assigned its 'CCC+' issue-level rating
and '3' recovery rating to Columbus, Ohio.-based Hexion Inc.'s
proposed $460 million first-priority senior secured notes due in
2022.  The '3' recovery rating indicates S&P's expectation for
meaningful recovery in the event of payment default (lower half of
the 50% to 70% range).

The company plans to use proceeds to fund redemption of a portion
of the 1.5-lien 8.875% senior secured notes due in 2018.  The
company also publically stated that they expect to issue up to $250
million of new senior secured debt for cash and/or in exchange for
a portion of the senior secured notes that are not purchased or
redeemed with the net proceeds of the new notes offering.  S&P will
further review the transactions after they close, including the
proposal to amend and extend the asset-based loan.

The ratings on Hexion, including the 'CCC+' corporate credit
rating, are unchanged.  The rating outlook remains negative.

All ratings are based on preliminary terms and conditions.

HILL-ROM HOLDINGS: S&P Affirms 'BB+' CCR on Planned Acquisition
---------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said that it affirmed its BB+ corporate credit
rating on Hill-Rom Holdings Inc. following the planned acquisition
of Mortara Instrument.  The outlook is stable.

S&P also affirmed its 'BB' issue-level rating to its unsecured
debt, reflecting a recovery rating of '5' and expectation of modest
(10%-30%) recovery in the event of default.

S&P affirmed the ratings because the Mortara acquisition is
consistent with S&P's view that the company will pursue portfolio
diversification and expansion and that debt to EBITDA will remain
3x-4x.  The last major acquisition, Welch Allyn Inc., was
successfully integrated and provides a more diverse product
portfolio by adding medical diagnostic equipment to Hill-Rom's
beds, surfaces, and surgical equipment portfolio.  The Mortara
acquisition would expand that diagnostic cardiology and patient
monitoring base.  While these two latest acquisitions improve the
company's business risk profile, S&P already accounted for
additional diversification and expansion into its current business
risk assessment and feel Hill-Rom would need to demonstrate an
ability to leverage its scale in markets outside of beds before S&P
changes its view of its business risk.  From a financial risk
perspective, the Mortara acquisition does not change S&P's view
because it only increases leverage slightly, and S&P expects
Hill-Rom to incrementally improve leverage levels over the next two
years.

Hill-Rom's reliance on beds (where it commands more than 50% of the
market and derives 37% of its revenue) and surfaces operations
subjects the company to variable U.S. hospital capital spending.
However the targeted growth strategies have demonstrated the
company's ability to expand its offering into ancillary markets,
allowing for a broader product portfolio.  S&P believes Hill-Rom is
increasing the value provided to hospital customers by
consolidating suppliers.  While hospitals are under constant
pressure to contain costs and tighten budgets, Hill-Rom has
expanded upon its core bed business to sell systems in wound care
and prevention and respiratory health.

The acquisition of Welch Allyn increased the company's product
diversity by expanding operations within clinical workflow
technologies.  The successful integration helped the company
leverage its marketing presence, enhance distribution capability,
and increase participation in a broader suite of products used in
the hospital setting.  That benefitted the overall business by
providing a business line that has higher organic growth prospects
than the rest of the organization.  Domestic sales are expected to
contribute low- to mid–single-digit percentage organic growth,
and mergers and acquisitions (M&A), including the Mortara
acquisition, are expected to add further growth.  Concurrently, S&P
expects international sales to decline slightly, contributing to
overall growth of 7%-8% in 2017 (incorporating a half year of
Mortara) and in 2018 (including a full year of Mortara).  Excluding
acquisitions, organic growth for 2017 is expected to be in line
with the industry.  All five of the product categories (advancing
mobility, wound care and prevention, clinical workflow, surgical
safety and efficacy, and respiratory care) have large competitors
such as Stryker, Invacare, and GE Healthcare, which have the
resources to match the clinical expertise and product utility
Hill-Rom provides. But pricing pressures--derived from an increased
focus on hospital asset and resource efficiency, competitive
dynamics, and reimbursement constraints--are offset somewhat by
growth via M&A and cost-cutting measures from Hill-Rom's global
footprint optimization strategy.

Financial risk reflects our expectation that the company will
continue to operate with leverage of 3x-4x for 2017 and beyond.
Acquisitions are expected to remain an integral part of the growth
and diversification strategy.  S&P expects the company to use
excess free cash flow for dividends and acquisitions, given no
significant maturities until 2021.  With leverage of 4.3x in
fiscal-year 2016, including the slightly leveraging impact of the
Mortara acquisition, S&P expects the company to reduce leverage to
4x by the end of fiscal 2017 and further in the projected periods.


   -- Revenue growth between 7% and 8% for 2017, benefiting from
      increasing domestic sales and the acquisition of Mortara
      Instrument, but offset by international headwinds.

   -- EBITDA margin to remain around 19%, stabilized by a greater
      scale in operations.

   -- Acquisition spending of the $330 million paid for Mortara in

      2017 and falling to $125 million in 2018 as the company
      continues to look for targets with high growth profiles.

   -- Free operating cash flow (FOCF) of $190 million-$225 million

      in 2017, bolstered by increasing income from operations and
      stable capital expenditures.

With sources expected to exceed uses by more than 1.2x, S&P
believes Hill-Rom has an adequate liquidity profile.  The company
is viewed as having well established and solid banking
relationships, satisfactory standing in credit markets, generally
prudent risk management, adequate cushion on its covenants, and the
ability to withstand high-impact, low-probability events, albeit
with limited financing.  For the forward-looking periods, S&P
expects:

Principal liquidity sources

   -- $350 million in undrawn revolver availability;
   -- $232 million in balance sheet cash;
   -- Funds from operations (FFO) generation of $342 million; and
   -- $3 million of working capital inflows.

Principal liquidity uses

   -- Capital expenditures (capex) of $121 million; and
   -- Debt amortization of $73 million.

While S&P expects more acquisitions, they are not contracted and,
as such, S&P do not include them in its liquidity analysis.  The
Mortara acquisition has not been consummated and is not included.
S&P also believes the company would stop paying its dividend in
stress scenarios and therefore do not include it in the liquidity
analysis.

S&P's stable rating outlook on Hill-Rom reflects S&P's expectation
that the company will reduce leverage to about 4x by the end of
2017 and to 3.8x by the end of 2018 from 4.3x.  This view assumes
the company continues to pursue acquisitions that are of smaller
scale than that of Welch-Allyn, and keeps leverage near 4x.

The rating could be lowered if the company's acquisition activity
is more aggressive such that leverage increases above 4x, and S&P
believes the company's acquisition activity will remain aggressive
such that leverage would remain above that threshold.  This could
occur if Hill-Rom increases debt by $100 million without
incremental EBITDA and S&P thinks leverage will remain over 4x, and
if free cash flow declines to about $100 million due to
unsuccessful acquisition activity or further pricing pressure that
may hurt margins.  Additionally, while unlikely, S&P could lower
the rating if the company fails to integrate recently acquired
firms or has further trouble in its international markets such that
EBITDA margins fall below 15%, increasing leverage above 5x.

Hill-Rom could be upgraded if S&P sees it take market share from
competitors, indicated by sustained growth rates that exceed the
respective markets in which they operate.  While the company has
adequate barriers to entry, it often competes on price outside of
its core beds market due to the relative inability to structure
assets such that competitive pricing is avoided.  If S&P sees
Hill-Rom keep capex at current levels, increase its overall EBITDA
margin above 20%, and increase its market share, S&P would feel the
company has demonstrated an ability to compete more effectively and
would be considered for an upgrade.

IMPLANT SCIENCES: DMRJ, Montsant Dismiss Equity Panel's Claims
--------------------------------------------------------------
DMRJ Group and Montsant Partners on Wednesday filed a 100-page
challenge to the request of the Official Committee of Equity
Security Holders of Implant Sciences Corporation for standing to
commence and prosecute claims on behalf of the Debtors' estates
against DMRI Group and Montsant Partners.

The Equity Committee, according to the pre-bankruptcy lenders,
"attempts to weave a salacious tale of a rapacious lender that took
advantage of an otherwise profitable company, forced that company
to remain in an abusive relationship so that the lender could trade
on inside information and reap excessive profits, and caused the
termination of the CEO when he dared challenge the lender's
actions."

DMRJ and Montsant state that the Equity Committee's "tale bears the
distinct perspective of the fired former CEO, who is portrayed as
its fallen hero. As extra background color, the Equity Committee
cites the recent federal indictment of certain former executives
associated with the lender and related SEC and civil litigation,
even though these charges, while certainly serious, are entirely
unrelated to the DMRJ Parties and Debtors."

DMRJ and Montsant tell the Delaware bankruptcy court that the
Committee has not and cannot meet its burden of establishing a
basis for granting it standing to substantially delay and even
threaten what will otherwise be a 100% recovery to more senior
stakeholders.  When the Equity Committee's proposed complaint is
stripped of its innuendo and slanted allegations it can be seen for
what it really is -- a tale, full of sound and fury, but ultimately
signifying nothing.  The Court should not permit the Equity
Committee to engage in a protracted frolic and detour litigating
baseless claims against the DMRJ Parties in New York Supreme
Court.

DMRJ and Montsant state that for the past eight years, they have
supported Debtors all the way from the beginning stages of the
development, testing and deployment of their technology and
products, to qualification for and a contract with the TSA, through
and including an all asset sale to L3.  The asset sale will ensure
the future expansion of the Debtors' business and what should be a
100% payout to all creditors and even a return to equity.

During the time period of the relationship with the DMRJ Parties,
the Debtors' stock was delisted and their operating costs far
exceeded any revenue generated from sales.  Despite defaults under
the parties' loan agreements, DMRJ refrained from accelerating the
Debtors' obligation to pay all principal and interest due and
foreclosing on all the Debtors' assets, which would have eliminated
any value for unsecured creditors, much less equity.  Put simply,
Debtors could not have stayed in business or reached the point they
are today without the support of DMRJ and Montsant.

IMPLANT SCIENCES: Had Talks with Equity Panel on Standing Motion
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Official Committee of Equity Security Holders of Implant
Sciences Corporation informed the Delaware bankruptcy court that it
has had "constructive" discussions with the Debtors regarding its
request for standing to commence and prosecute claims on behalf of
the Debtors' estates against DMRI Group, LLC; and Montsant Partners
LLC.  To satisfy the Debtors' informal concerns as to the Standing
Motion, the Committee submitted a revised form of proposed Order
allowing the Standing Motion.

The revised Proposed Order provides that any and all additional
causes of action that may be added to the committee's Draft
Complaint, including any additional counts that may be permitted
under the applicable rules of the court of competent jurisdiction
in which the Draft Complaint may be filed; provided, however, that
the only additional counts and causes of action hereby authorized
to be added to the Draft Complaint by this Order are limited to
those against any of DMRJ, Montsant, and each of their respective
former, current or future officers, employees, directors, agents,
representatives, owners, members, partners, financial advisors,
legal advisors, shareholders, managers, consultants, accountants,
attorneys, affiliates, and predecessors in interest.

The Proposed Order also states that the Challenge Period Deadline
is suspended as it applies to the DMRJ and Montsant Parties until
such time as the Court enters an order finding that DMRJ, Montsant
and Platinum Partners have satisfied all of their respective
obligations arising under the Stipulated 2004 Order; and that the
Debtors' rights to object to any and all fees and expenses arising
from or related to the investigation, commencement and prosecution
of the causes of action asserted in the Draft Complaint on any and
all bases is reserved.

According to a redacted version of the Standing Motion filed in
December, the Equity Committee contends that from the outset of its
dealings with the Debtors, DMRJ exploited its relationship as
secured lenders to the Debtors to amass an unconscionable profit
through the use of threats, manipulation and coercion to permit
DMRJ to reap the benefits of, among other things, insider trading
and a usurious interest rate -- all the while tortiously
interfering with the Debtors' ability to obtain more favorable
financing.  Through its coercion and manipulation, DMRJ has, among
other things, amassed over [______] in illegal proceeds in addition
to the millions of dollars in illegal interest it has received, all
to the detriment of the Debtors' estates.

The Committee also alleges that the Platinum Partners personnel
recently indicted on charges for participating in a fraudulent
scheme of over $1 billion with other financial counter-parties are
the same DMRJ personnel that managed the lending relationship with
the Company and the trades of Implant Sciences' stock.  In fact,
the Committee was scheduled to depose Joseph SanFilippo on Dec. 21,
2016; but two days earlier he became unavailable because he was
arrested and indicted. Given the DMRJ Executives alleged
involvement in a criminal scheme described in the indictment to
defraud investors in order to maximize Platinum Partners' own
profits, it, unfortunately, comes as no surprise that DMRJ also
here engaged in similarly egregious and wrongful conduct at the
expense of the Debtors and their investors.

According to the Committee, its Standing Motion and the Draft
Complaint do not identify Platinum Partners or the DMRJ Executives
as named defendants.  As a result of DMRJ's failure to comply with
the Stipulated 2004 Order, the Committee has not received a
substantial portion of the discovery that this court has ordered
Platinum Partners and DMRJ to produce -- including, significantly,
copies of internal emails by and among the DMRJ Executives and
other personnel at DMRJ and/or Platinum Partners. Without the
discovery, the Committee has not yet been able to ascertain the
nature of claims that may exist against Platinum Partners, all or
certain of the DMRJ Executives and perhaps others at DMRJ and/or
Platinum Partners.

Pursuant to the Second Interim DIP Order, the Committee had until
December 23, 2016 to: (i) investigate the prepetition conduct of
the prepetition lenders, including DMRJ Group and Montsant, and
their representatives; (ii) request standing before the Court to
bring any causes of action; and (iii) thereafter file the related
complaints as a representative of the estate.  On November 30,
2016, the Court entered its Final Order wherein the Challenge
Period Deadline was extended up to and including January 23, 2017,
without prejudice to the Committee to seek further extension if
necessary.

INDUSTRIAL RIDE: Seeks Authorization to Use Cash Collateral
-----------------------------------------------------------
Industrial Ride Shop, LLC seeks interim authorization from the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the District of Arizona to use cash collateral
to pay necessary and essential post-petition operating expenses,
pending final hearing.

The Debtor's consolidated 14 week  budget, for the period December
17, 2016 through March 25, 2017 provides total operational cash
expenses of $916,319 and total Chapter 11 Professional fees and
costs of $56,000.  As set forth on the Budget, the Debtors' urgent
cash needs during the interim period, from January 15 through
January 28, 2017 total $177,185.  

The Debtor tells the Court that the sale of the its inventory
generates proceeds that may constitute cash or cash equivalents in
which Bank of America asserts a lien.  However, Bank of America has
not consented to the Debtor's use of cash collateral past January
7, 2017.

Bank of America loaned funds to the Debtor in three facilities,
secured by the Debtor's equipment, fixtures, inventory, and
receivables. As of the Petition Date, the outstanding balance of
the Debtor's indebtedness to Bank of America was approximately
$791,611.

Accordingly, the Debtor proposes to provide Bank of America
replacement liens in new inventory purchased with proceeds from
sale of inventory subject to Bank of America's liens.

The Debtor has an urgent need to: (a) replenish inventory depleted
by holiday sales; (b) pay their employees (approximately 80 people)
on January 20, 2017; (c) avoid further disruption to their
businesses; (d) travel to and close certain underperforming stores;
(e) maintain the strength of the "Industrial Rideshop" brand; (f)
maintain customer loyalty; and (g) preserve the Debtors' going
concern value for the benefit of creditors while they formulate
their plan to emerge from bankruptcy.

The Debtor adds that without the use of cash, the Debtor's retail
enterprise's reorganizational prospects will be severely hampered
if not extinguished.

INTOWN COMPANIES: Property Tax Claimholders to be Paid in 60 Months
-------------------------------------------------------------------
The Intown Companies, Inc., filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court

2012 Real Estate Taxes (Bill 647640-I) will continue to be granted
interest on the total amount owed on the Effective Date of the Plan
at the certificate rate of 0.25%.  The Debtor will pay interest
only payments towards the 2012 Real Estate Taxes for months one
through 36.  The Debtor will pay principal and interest payments in
months 37 through 60 based upon the full outstanding balance with
the certificate rate of interest amortized over 24 months.

J. CREW: Bank Debt Trades at 46% Off
------------------------------------
Participations in a syndicated loan under J. Crew is a borrower
traded in the secondary market at 54.41 cents-on-the-dollar during
the week ended Friday, January 13, 2017, according to data compiled
by LSTA/Thomson Reuters MTM Pricing.  This represents a decrease of
1.24 percentage points from the previous week.  J. Crew pays 300
basis points above LIBOR to borrow under the $1.56 billion
facility. The bank loan matures on Feb. 27, 2021 and carries
Moody's Caa1 rating and Standard & Poor's CCC- rating.  The loan is
one of the biggest gainers and losers among 247 widely quoted
syndicated loans with five or more bids in secondary trading for
the week ended January 13.


KINETIC CONCEPTS: S&P Affirms 'B' CCR & Revises Outlook to Pos.
---------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings affirmed its 'B' corporate credit rating on
Kinetic Concepts Inc. and revised the outlook to positive from
stable.

At the same time, S&P lowered the rating on the first-lien debt due
2021 to 'B' from 'BB-' and revised the recovery rating to '3' from
'1'.  The '3' recovery indicates expectations for meaningful
(50%-70%, upper end of the range) recovery in a default.  S&P also
assigned a 'B' rating to the new first-lien debt with a '3'
recovery rating.  The debt consists of a $1.125 million first-lien
term loan due 2024, a Euro equivalent $250 million first-lien term
loan due 2024, and a $300 million revolver due 2022.  The borrowers
are Kinetic concepts Inc. and KCI USA Inc.  The '3' recovery rating
indicates S&P's expectations for meaningful (50%-70%; upper end of
the range) recovery in a default.

In addition, S&P raised the rating on the third-lien debt to 'B-'
from 'CCC+' and revised the recovery rating to '5' from '6'.  The
'5' recovery rating indicates expectations of modest recovery
(10%-30%, lower half of the range) in a default.

"The rating actions follow the sale of LifeCell to Allergan for
$2.9 billion and Kinetic Concepts' refinancing of its first-lien
debt," said S&P Global Ratings credit analyst Lucas Taylor.  The
company plans to use proceeds from the sale to pay down debt, and
the lower overall EBITDA will be offset by a reduced overall debt
structure, resulting in leverage that is lower by about two turns.
While the company is smaller post-sale, S&P believes Kinetic will
maintain an adequate position within wound care, which supports
S&P's view of its fair business risk.

Previously, S&P considered Kinetic to be highly reliant on its
vacuum assisted closure (VAC) therapy (negative-pressure wound
therapy) sector, because it made up a dominant share of the
company's revenue.  LifeCell, focused on regenerative and
reconstructive acellular tissue matrices and autologous fat
grafting solutions, provided some diversification and brand
awareness with its ALLODERM product.  While S&P thinks the sale
affects overall diversification and further concentrates Kinetic's
efforts into VAC, it does not put the company in a materially worse
position than before, given that VAC remains a highly respected
product, Prevena Incision Management System continues to make
strides in developed markets, and the company is one of the
strongest contributors in the wound care space.

The divestiture of LifeCell has material implications on the
company's overall profitability.  The LifeCell division had margins
that were significantly higher than overall company margins, which
provided ballast while the company struggled to grow.  However, the
sale allows Kinetic to lower its leverage by repaying some of its
debt, although EBITDA margins will likely be about 300 basis points
lower.  S&P now expects leverage in 2017 to be about 5.3x compared
with previous estimates of 7.4x.

The positive rating outlook on Kinetic Concepts Inc. incorporates
S&P's expectation that while adjusted debt leverage will remain
above 5.0x, the company will progressively deleverage and
substantially improve free cash flow.  As a result, there is at
least a one in three chance of an upgrade over the next 12 months.

S&P could revise the outlook to stable if the sale of the LifeCell
business results in a market position that is materially worse for
Kinetic Concepts and its annualized cash flow remains under $75
million.  S&P would revise its assessment of business risk if the
company experiences market share losses within the Advanced
Woundcare Therapeutics segment or if an influx of new competition
indicates lowered barriers to entry and an reduced ability to
effectively compete.

S&P would consider an upgrade if Kinetic Concepts managed to
increase its free cash flow profile such that it exceeded that of
similarly rated peers.  This would require margins maintained at
33% and continued market share stability, which would help cash
flow rise above $75 million.  An upgrade, though, would be
predicated on a reduction in working capital swings, which would
impart a sense of stability in the overall sources and uses of
capital.


KOPH INC: Authorized to Use Cash Collateral Through Feb. 10
-----------------------------------------------------------
Judge Jack B. Schmetterer of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Northern District of Illinois authorized Koph, Inc., to use First
Community Financial Bank's cash collateral from Jan. 10, 2017

its restaurant business at 13717 S. Route 30, Plainfield, IL.

First Community is granted valid, perfected and enforceable
post-petition replacement liens on all proceeds of the existing
collateral, and all new collateral, to the extent that it had
perfected liens prepetition. First Community's post petition lien
will be superior in right to any other lien.

The Debtor is directed to make adequate protection payments of $600
to First Community on the first of each month, and continuing until

LIMITED STORES: Jan. 24 Meeting Set to Form Creditors' Panel
------------------------------------------------------------
Andy Vara, Acting United States Trustee for Region 3, will hold an
organizational meeting on Jan. 24, 2017, at 10:00 a.m. in the
bankruptcy case of Limited Stores Company, LLC.

The meeting will be held at:

               Sheraton Suites
               422 Delaware Avenue
               Wilmington, DE 19801

The sole purpose of the meeting will be to form a committee or
committees of unsecured creditors in the Debtors' case.

The organizational meeting is not the meeting of creditors pursuant
to Section 341 of the Bankruptcy Code.  A representative of the
Debtor, however, may attend the Organizational Meeting, and provide
background information regarding the bankruptcy cases.

To increase participation in the Chapter 11 proceeding, Section
1102 of the Bankruptcy Code requires that the United States Trustee
appoint a committee of unsecured creditors as soon as practicable.
The Committee ordinarily consists of the persons, willing to serve,
that hold the seven largest unsecured claims against the debtor of
the kinds represented on the committee.

Section 1103 of the Bankruptcy Code provides that the Committee may
consult with the debtor, investigate the debtor and its business
operations and participate in the formulation of a plan of
reorganization.  The Committee may also perform other services as
are in the interests of the unsecured creditors whom it
represents.

LIMITED STORES: Limited IP Buying Assets for $25.8 Million
----------------------------------------------------------
Limited Stores Co., LLC, and The Limited Stores GC, LLC, ask the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware to authorize the
sale of intellectual property and related assets to Limited IP
Acquisition, LLC, for $25,750,000.

Founded in 1963 as a single store, the Debtors expanded over the
past 5 decades to become a household name throughout the U.S. for
women's apparel.  The Debtors' businesses focused on two channels:
(a) their primarily mall-based brick and mortar business and (b)
their online e-commerce business.  Despite years of popularity and
expansion, the Debtors, like many other retailers, recently faced
significant operational challenges - including declining mall
traffic, an increase in online shopping, and disappointing sales -
resulting in a precipitous drop in EBITDA over the course of 2016.
As a result, the Debtors were forced to make difficult cost-cutting
decisions during the fourth quarter of 2016 to preserve liquidity
and maximize value for their stakeholders, including cancelling
orders of new inventory and undertaking a significant reduction in
force at their corporate headquarters.

In September 2016, the Debtors reignited their marketing efforts,
which initially began in late 2015, when the Debtors received, and
ultimately forwent, first an unsolicited offer to enter into a
joint venture involving the Intellectual Property, and subsequently
an offer to acquire 100% of the equity interests in the Company.
Spearheaded by Guggenheim Securities, LLC, over the ensuing five
months the Debtors exhaustively marketed their assets, exploring
various transaction structures, including transactions involving
the sale of the company as a whole including the Debtor’s brick
and mortar business and transactions centered on the Debtors'
Intellectual Property and e-commerce business.

As the process progressed, the Debtors received interest from
numerous potential purchasers.  But despite several parties
expressing initial interest in a going concern transaction
involving the Debtors' brick and mortar business, the Debtors were
only able to obtain written indications of interest structured
around the Debtors' Intellectual Property.  Thus, in December 2016,
with no new inventory arriving and a fixed liquidity runway, the
Debtors began an orderly and efficient liquidation process focused
on the twin goals of winding down their brick and mortar business
and selling their Intellectual Property and related assets while
still entertaining any interest expressed in the remaining brick
and mortar operations.

The first of these goals is complete, as the Debtors liquidated
substantially all of their inventory and ceased operations at all
of their approximately 250 brick and mortar locations prior to
commencement of the Chapter 11 cases.  And the second of these
goals is also nearly complete.  After seeking and obtaining several
new or revised indications of interest for just the Intellectual
Property and related assets, two parties entered into formal asset
purchase agreement negotiations.  The Purchaser ultimately
prevailed as the successful bidder after more than two dozen rounds
of bidding, during which the cash portion of the purchase price
increased by approximately 72% and the Purchaser APA subsequently
was finalized.  As a result, the Debtors are in the position of
beginning these chapter 11 cases with not only a purchaser of the
Assets, but with a purchase price that has been fully vetted and
competitively tested - yet still subject to higher or better offers
through a bankruptcy sale process.

But time is of the essence if the Debtors are to capitalize on the
work performed to date.  Under the Purchaser APA, the Purchaser has
agreed to purchase the Assets for a cash purchase price of
$25,750,000 and assume the Selling Debtors' obligations under the
Executory Contracts.  The Debtors have approximately $13,400,000 of
funded debt secured by the Assets and approximately $250,000 of
cash on hand.  In addition, the Debtors anticipate that the
administrative expense of the Chapter 11 cases will be
approximately $3,400,000 per month prior to the anticipated closing
of the proposed Sale.  Thus, the Debtors' ability to return any
value to their unsecured creditors is dependent on their ability to
efficiently proceed on the timeline proposed.  

Specifically, the Debtors request that the Court approve this
timeline:

   a. setting the Bid Protections Hearing to consider approval of
the Bid Protections to occur no later than 10 days after the
Petition Date;

   b. setting the Sale Hearing to occur no later than 30 days after
the Petition Date;

   c. setting the objection deadline and the deadline to submit
competing binding offers with respect to the Sale of the Assets to
be no later than 7 days prior to the Sale Hearing; and

   d. setting the Auction, if any, to occur no later than 5 days
prior to the Sale Hearing.

The Debtors believe that this timeline is essential to maximizing
the value of their estates.  Although the Debtors will welcome a
higher or better offer, a longer sale process is unlikely to yield
a material, if any, increase in the Debtors' prospects of receiving
a higher or better offer.  Materially extending the sale process,
however, will increase the costs associated with these cases that
either is not supported by the proposed DIP Facility or will
diminish the potential value available for creditors of the
Debtors' estates.  Delay could also lead to the Debtors becoming
unable to meet the Sale milestones in the Purchaser APA, which in
turn could result in the Purchaser terminating the Purchaser APA or
seeking to renegotiate the purchase price.

Consummating the Sale is an essential step in resolving these
chapter 11 cases and maximizing value to the Debtors' creditors.
Ultimately, the Debtors believe that the Sale of the Assets is a
sound exercise of their business judgment, and that the relief
requested in the Motion is in the best interests of their creditors
and all other parties in interest. Accordingly, the Court should
approve the relief requested.

The material terms of the APA are:

   a. Sellers: Limited Stores, LLC and The Limited Stores GC, LLC

   b. Limited IP Acquisition, LLC

   c. Purchase Price: $25,750,000 and the assumption of certain
obligations.

   d. Assets: The Sellers will sell and the Purchaser will
purchase: (i) all Intellectual Property owned by the Sellers,
including the right to sue for past, present, or future
infringement, misappropriation, dilution or other violation; (ii)
all of the Sellers' rights existing under certain Executory
Contracts and (iii) certain of the Sellers' other assets and (iv)
all Avoidance Actions with respect to MGF Sourcing US, LLC or any
of its subsidiaries and all rights thereunder.  

   e. Assumed Obligations: The Purchaser will assume all
liabilities of the Seller under the Executory Contracts.

   f. Assumed Contracts: The Debtors will assume and assign to the
Purchasers certain Executory Contracts and the Purchaser will cure
any and all defaults under the Executory Contracts pursuant to
section 363 of the Bankruptcy Code.

   g. Competitive Bidding: The Purchaser APA is subject to higher
or better offers, provided that (a) any such higher or better offer
qualifies as an Overbid and (b) any such Overbid is submitted to
the Debtors no later than the Bid Deadline.

   h. Closing and Other Deadline: The Closing will occur no later
than the first business day after the date on which the closing
conditions have been satisfied.  The closing conditions include the
entry by the Court of the Bid Protections Order and the Sale
Order.

   i. Good-Faith Deposit:  The Purchaser deposited an amount equal
to 5% of the Cash Portion of the purchase price ($1,287,500) into
an Escrow Account.

   j. Use of Proceeds: The Cash Portion of the purchase price to be
applied in accordance with any Order of the Bankruptcy Court in
effect authorizing the Debtors' entry into any DIP Credit
Agreement.

   k. Credit Bid: Pursuant to the terms of any order authorizing
the Debtors' entry into the DIP Credit Agreement, the Prepetition
Agent and the DIP Agent have preserved the right to credit bid
their obligations under the DIP Credit Agreement and Pre-Petition
Credit Agreement.

   l. Relief from Bankruptcy Rule 6004(h): To maximize the value
received for the assets, the Debtors are seeking to close the Sale
as soon as possible after the hearing on the Motion.  The Debtors,
therefore, have requested a waiver of the 14-day stay under
Bankruptcy Rule 6004(h).

   m. Bid Protections: (i) Breakup Fee: A breakup fee equal to 3%
of the Cash Portion of the purchase price ($772,500), payable in
the event that the Purchaser APA is terminated and the Selling
Debtors consummate an alternative transaction; and (ii) Expense
Reimbursement: A reasonable expense reimbursement of up to $500,000
if the Purchaser APA is terminated.  The Bid Protections will be an
administrative expense priority claim.

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

        http://bankrupt.com/misc/Limited_Stores_13_Sales.pdf

The Debtors seek entry of an order approving the Bid Protections.
The Bid Protections were a necessary component of the Purchaser's
bid, and the Debtors do not believe that the Purchaser would have
submitted a proposal, let alone permitted such proposal to be
subject to superior offers postpetition, without the Bid
Protections.  Accordingly, the Debtors believe that the benefit of
the Purchaser APA outweighs the cost associated with the Bid
Protections.

To facilitate and effectuate the sale of the Assets, the Debtors
seek authority to assign or transfer the Executory Contracts to the
Purchaser or Overbid Purchaser arising from the Auction, if any, to
the extent required by such bidders.

In addition, the Debtors seek to only hold an Auction if they
obtain an Overbid that: (a) is a bulk bid to purchase all or
substantially all of the Assets; (b) clearly sets forth the
purchase price to be paid, including and identifying separately any
cash and non-cash components; (c) is accompanied by a cash deposit
in the amount equal to 5% of the Bid Price to be held in an escrow
account to be identified and established by the Debtors; (d)
provides consideration equal to or in excess of the sum of (i) cash
in an amount equal to $25,750,000, (ii) cash equal to the Bid
Protections ($1,272,500), and (iii) $250,000; and (e) that is
otherwise higher or better than the Purchaser APA, as determined in
the Debtors' business judgment; provided however that the DIP Agent
and Pre-Petition Agent will have the absolute right to credit bid
any portion or all of the Debtors' outstanding obligations under
the DIP Credit Agreement and the Pre-Petition Credit Agreement
pursuant to Bankruptcy Code section 363(k), with such amounts
treated the same as a cash bid of the equivalent amount, and
without being required to pay any deposit in respect of such credit
bid.

To ensure that the Debtors capture the full benefit of the
Purchaser APA, the Debtors seek entry of an order scheduling
certain dates and deadlines in connection with the Sale Hearing,
including an objection and competing bid deadline (7 days before
the Sale Hearing) and, if needed, an auction date (5 days before
the Sale Hearing).  The Debtors believe that consummation of the
Sale in accordance with the timeframe contemplated herein will
maximize the value of the Assets and otherwise inure to the benefit
of their estates.

The Debtors ask that the Court schedule the Bid Protections Hearing
no later than Jan. 27, 2017.  The Purchaser may terminate the
Purchaser APA if the Bid Protection Order is not entered before
Feb. 3, 2017.  The Debtors further request that the objection
deadline regarding the Bid Protections be 2 days prior to the Bid
Protections Hearing.

The Debtors asks that the Court schedule the Sale Hearing no later
than Feb. 16, 2017.  The Purchaser may terminate the Purchaser APA
if the Sale Order is not entered before Feb. 24, 2017.  The Debtors
further ask that (a) the Sale Objection Deadline and Bid Deadline
be 7 days prior to such hearing and (b) the Auction, if any, to
occur no later than 5 days prior to the Sale Hearing.

The Debtors ask authority to consummate the Sale contemplated by
the Purchaser APA, free and clear of all liens, claims,
encumbrances, and interests pursuant to section 363 of the
Bankruptcy Code.  In the Debtors' business judgment, consummating
the sale is in the best interests of their estates.

To maximize the certainty that the Sale will close and the Debtors
will realize the benefits of the Sale, the Debtors seek to close
the Sale as soon as possible after the Sale

Hearing.  Accordingly, the Debtors ask that the Court waive the
14-day stay period under Bankruptcy Rules 6004(h) and 6006(d).

conventional chemical pesticides, including certain agricultural
and water markets, where the Company's bio-based products are used
as alternatives for, or mixed with, conventional chemical products.
The Company also targets new markets for which (i) there are no
available conventional chemical pesticides or (ii) the use of
conventional chemical pesticides may not be desirable or
permissible either because of health and environmental concerns
(including for organically certified crops) or because the
development of pest resistance has reduced the efficacy of
conventional chemical pesticides.  All of the Company's current
products are approved by the United States Environmental Protection
Agency and registered as "biopesticides."

The Company reported a net loss of $43.7 million in 2015, a net

restrictive debt covenants that raise substantial doubt about its
ability to continue as a going concern.


MATHIOPOULOS 3M: Allowed to Use Cash Collateral Until March 31
--------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Christopher M. Klein of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Eastern District of California authorized Mathiopoulos 3M Family
Limited Partnership to use cash collateral for the period February
1, 2017, and March 31, 2017.

The Debtor is authorized to use up to the aggregate sum of $5,168
per month, to pay operating expenses, particularly: property
insurance, Pacific Gas and Electric, Recology Auburn (for garbage),
telephone for business, pest control, telephone for fire and
security, life insurance policies, property maintenance, and other
miscellaneous expenses.

March on 2017, and (c) Stanley Security for Fire Alarm in the
amount of $101 which will be due on March 2017.

Judge Klein granted the creditors having an interest in the cash
collateral with replacement liens in the post-petition rents in the
same priority, validity, and extent as they existed in the cash
collateral expended, to the extent that the use of cash collateral
resulted in a reduction of a creditors' secured claim.

The Debtor is directed to continue making the monthly adequate
protection payments of $13,632 to Wells Fargo Bank, N.A.

A hearing will be held on March 9, 2017 at 10:30 a.m. to consider a

METCOM NETWORK: Intends to File Chapter 11 Plan by April 22
-----------------------------------------------------------
Metcom Network Services, Inc., asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the Southern District of New York to extend the exclusive periods
during which only the Debtr may file a Chapter 11 plan and solicit
acceptances to the plan, through April 22, 2017 and June 20, 2017,
respectively.

The Debtor tells the Court that it leases five different locations
through which it operates its business: (a) 60 Hudson Street,
Suites 1001 and 2303, New York, NY 10013, (b) 75 Broad Street, New
York, NY 10004, (c) 4250 Veterans Memorial Highway, Suite 3150
West, Holbrook, NY 11741, (d) 80 Washington Street, Poughkeepsie,
NY 12601, and, (e) warehouse located at 190 Blydenburgh Road,
Islandia, NY 11749.

Currently, the Debtor has been attempting to obtain written consent
from all of its landlords to further extend its time to assume or
reject the Unexpired Leases through February 1, 2017.  The Debtor
has already obtained two written consents thus far, and anticipates
receiving the other three the latest by January 23, 2017.

The Debtor contends that the most significant of these Unexpired
Leases is the 60 Hudson Street, New York, NY, which by its terms
expires in May 2017.  The Debtor relates that at the commencement
of its chapter 11 case, the Debtor owed a significant amount of
pre-petition rental arrears in excess of $1.8 million to the
landlord on the 60 Hudson Lease, and this situation presented a
challenge to the Debtor in finding a buyer that would be willing to
purchase the Debtor's business as a going concern given the
significant amount necessary to cure the 60 Hudson Lease, and the
limited amount of time remaining on said lease.

The Debtor contends that until a recent settlement, it had also
been involved in ongoing litigation with N Plus Systems LLC
regarding N Plus' sublease of space in the Building from the
Debtor. The Debtor anticipated that it would be likely that any
party wishing to purchase the Debtor's business as a going concern
would require the resolution of its dispute with N Plus prior to
closing any such sale.

The Debtor relates that in the intervening months, the Debtor and
Epsilon US, Inc. engaged in arms' length, good faith negotiations
over the purchase transaction. The Debtor further relates that
Epsilon US has agreed to subject its transaction to higher and
better offers through a bidding and auction process as outlined in
the bidding procedures order, which was approved by the Court. A
sale hearing is scheduled to be held on January 30, 2017 at 11:00
a.m.

Accordingly, the Debtor submits that it requires more time to
consummate the Proposed Sale and formulate a confirmable chapter 11
plan of reorganization.

The Debtor also tells the Court that the total claims filed against
its estate is $4,493,099, consisting of $1,210,511 secured claims,
$716,926 priority claims, and $2,565,662 of unsecured claims.
Although the deadline that was fixed by the Bar Date Order for the
filing of proofs of claims for nongovernmental entities is October
26, 2016, and December 26, 2016 for all governmental entities, the
Debtor is still reviewing these claims and negotiating with its
creditors to attempt to reduce the amount of prepetition claims
against its estate.

NAKED BRAND: Enters Into Letter of Intent to Merge with Bendon
--------------------------------------------------------------
Naked Brand Group Inc. and Bendon Limited have entered into a
letter of intent for a proposed merger of the companies.  Expected
benefits of this proposed merger include:

   * Bendon would gain immediate access to the U.S. capital
     markets enabling it to further grow the business globally,
     both organically and through future strategic acquisitions;
     
   * The Naked brand would be able to leverage Bendon's well-
     established global wholesale and retail distribution
     channels;
     
   * The combined entity would capitalize on the industry-leading
     expertise of Carole Hochman, Naked's chief executive officer,
     to strengthen its global intimate apparel and sleepwear brand
     portfolio; and
     
   * Operating synergies through integrated supply chain
     management and administrative functions.

Bendon's brands include Heidi Klum Intimates and Swimwear, Stella
McCartney Lingerie and Swimwear, Bendon, Bendon Man, Davenport,
Evollove, Fayreform, Hickory, Lovable (in Australia and New
Zealand) and Pleasure State.  Bendon's brands are distributed

headquartered in Auckland, and maintains additional offices in
Sydney, New York, London and Hong Kong.  For the fiscal year ended
2016, Bendon generated approximately NZ $144 million (US $100
million) in net sales.

Ms. Hochman stated, "We are extremely excited about the potential
of this proposed merger, and look forward to capitalizing on
Bendon's scale and expertise to further expand the Naked brands.
The Bendon team has built a phenomenal business, and by leveraging
their infrastructure, product and geographic knowledge, and talent,
we believe that we can accelerate our growth in the innerwear
fashion and lifestyle market."

Justin Davis-Rice, executive chairman of Bendon, commented, "This
is a transformative merger that will create a powerful creative,
marketing, operational and capital markets platform.  As a publicly
traded company in the U.S., we expect to have an opportunity to
accelerate our growth and strengthen our position as a global
leader in intimate apparel, swimwear, innerwear fashion and
lifestyle brands through both organic growth and strategic
acquisitions.  We are also delighted to partner with industry
pioneer, Carole Hochman, who brings unrivalled experience to our
company and whose expertise is expected to not only strengthen our
existing brands but to provide us with an unprecedented opportunity
to develop our sleepwear business, a product category that
represents a significant growth opportunity."

Eric Watson, executive chairman of Cullen Investments, Bendon's
majority shareholder, added, "This is an incredible opportunity for
Bendon to strengthen its leadership in the industry and drive the
continued growth of the business as a consolidator of globally
recognized brands."

Carole Hochman, who will become chief creative officer of the
merged company, is considered one of the single most influential
women in the intimate apparel and sleepwear business in the United
States with experience that extends more than 30 years.  She was

As stated in the LOI, Mr. Davis-Rice will join Naked's board of
directors, effective immediately.  Concurrent with the completion
of the proposed Merger, Ms. Hochman would retain a seat on the
board of the combined company.

Terms of Letter of Intent

The LOI with Bendon provides that the Company would issue the
holders of ordinary shares of Bendon an aggregate of 118,812,163
shares of common stock of the Company, subject to adjustment,
representing approximately 93.6% of the combined company.
Completion of the Merger is subject to the negotiation of a
definitive merger agreement, satisfaction of the conditions
negotiated therein and approval of the Merger by the Company's
stockholders.  Accordingly, there can be no assurance that a Merger
Agreement will be entered into or that the proposed Merger will be
consummated.  Further, readers are cautioned that those portions of
the LOI that describe the proposed Merger, including the
consideration to be issued therein, are non-binding.

Pursuant to the terms of the LOI, the Company's management as well
as certain insiders will agree to sign voting agreements pursuant
to which each such person will grant a proxy and/or agree to vote
for the Merger at any meeting of stockholders.  In addition, key
employees of Bendon will be offered employment with the Company, to
be effective upon completion of the Merger.  Upon completion of the
Merger, the Board of the Company would be comprised of Ms. Hochman,
Mr. Davis-Rice and several additional members to be identified and
nominated by Bendon.

Pursuant to the terms of the LOI, the Company has agreed to adhere
to a no-shop provision until the earlier of the date the Merger
Agreement is executed or the LOI is terminated.  If the Merger
Agreement is not executed by Feb. 10, 2017, or the Merger is not
consummated within six months thereafter, the Company will be
required to issue to Bendon 2.5 million shares of common stock;
provided, however, that the Company will not be required to issue
Bendon such shares if Bendon's actions or lack thereof has been the
principal cause of or resulted in the failure of the parties to
achieve a Merger Milestone.

Assuming Naked and Bendon enter into the Merger Agreement, the
parties will look to seek shareholder approval from Naked's
shareholders in the first quarter of 2017, subject to SEC review of
the proxy statement to be filed by the parties for the proposed
transaction.

NORTHPORT BAY: Seeks Authorization to Use National Cash Collateral
------------------------------------------------------------------
Northport Bay Inc. seeks authorization from the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the Eastern District of New York to use cash collateral
in which National Loan Investors may assert a security interest.

The Debtor is in the business of renting out apartments and
commercial space in its real property located at 45 Bayview Avenue,
Inwood, NY 11096.  The Debtor receives approximately $10,230 per
month from the operation of its business, and approximately $9,800
of which amount is subject to National Loan Investors' security
interest.

The Debtor intends to use cash collateral to pay its ordinary and
necessary expenses in the approximate amount of $6,465, which
includes mortgage, natural gas for heating water, and maintaining
the real property.  The Debtor contends that if it is not allowed
to pay these expenses, the tenants of the real property may be able
to rightfully withhold payment of rent, which would harm the Debtor
and its estate.

The Debtor believes that National Loan Investors is the only entity
with a security interests in the rents from its real property.  The
Debtor relates that it has granted a promissory note to Banco
Popular North American, secured with a mortgage against the
Debtor's real property, in addition to an assignment of rents from
the real property.  Subsequently, Banco Popular assigned to
National Loan Investors the mortgage and assignment of rents.  

The Debtor tells the Court that National Loan Investors is
adequately protected because of the equity cushion existing in the
real property. Nevertheless, that Debtor proposes to pay National
Loan Investors $3,068 per month, which constitutes the monthly
pre-default amount due, including interest, on the 2012 and 2013
Note.

ONVOY LLC: Moody's Assigns B2 Corp. Family Rating
-------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has assigned a first-time B2 corporate
family rating (CFR) and a B2-PD probability of default rating (PDR)
to Onvoy, LLC. Moody's has also assigned a B1 (LGD3) rating to the
company's proposed $535 million senior secured 1st lien credit
facility which consists of a $500 million 7 year term loan and a
$35 million 5 year revolver. The company will also issue a second
lien term loan which Moody's will not rate. The proceeds from the
secured credit facilities will be used to fund the acquisition of
Inteliquent, Inc. ("Inteliquent"), an interconnection partner for
communications service providers, and to repay existing debt.

Issuer: Onvoy, LLC

Assignments:

Probability of Default Rating, Assigned B2-PD

Corporate Family Rating, Assigned B2

Senior Secured 1st Lien Term Loan, Assigned B1 (LGD3)

Senior Secured 1st Lien Revolving Credit Facility, Assigned B1
(LGD3)

Outlook Actions:

Outlook, Assigned Stable

RATINGS RATIONALE

Onvoy's B2 CFR reflects its large network infrastructure, technical
expertise and growth potential which is driven by its expanding
network footprint. Onvoy is a specialty provider of network
infrastructure services to communications companies. By aggregating
traffic and focusing on the core network, Onvoy can offer its
customers a cheaper alternative to owning and operating their own
voice networks. Also, as voice continues to evolve as an
application offered in conjunction with managed services, Onvoy can
capture more volume growth from non-traditional providers of
unified communications services. The rating is also supported by
the company's strong liquidity profile.

Onvoy offers both legacy telecommunications services as well as
next generation voice connections and terminations. Although the
total market volume of voice traffic is in a state of long term
decline, Onvoy continues to enjoy healthy margins from its legacy
operations, particularly switching, which contributes to strong
cash flow generation. Onvoy is also well positioned to capture
volumes as carriers look to outsource their voice traffic and new
providers enter the market. Further, with the acquisition of
Inteliquent, the company will aim to improve its position as a
provider of non-direct (or off-net) interconnection services. In
August of 2015, Inteliquent entered into an agreement to perform
such services for T-Mobile. The company expects other retail
communication providers to engage in similar partnerships leading
to substantial growth.

The rating is constrained by inherent business and technology risk
in Onvoy's operations and its small scale which limits its ability
to absorb unexpected disruptions to its business. Nearly all of
Onvoy's revenue is variable and driven by call volume, and Moody's
expects the total market call volume to continue to decline over
the long term as people shift to other communication modes.
Further, as a wholesale provider of a commodity-like service,
prices and margins are already extremely low which limits Onvoy's
ability to grow cash flows. Switching costs are minimal for Onvoy's
customers and traffic can migrate quickly to other providers.
Moody's believes that Onvoy will be a price-taker and must maintain
a cost advantage to maintain profitability.

Moody's expects Onvoy to have leverage of near 6x (Moody's
adjusted) immediately following the transaction close, trending
below 5x by fiscal year ending June 30, 2018 due to EBITDA growth.
The company's low capital spending requirements at approximately 5%
of revenue and good margins in the mid 20% range result in positive
free cash flow. In addition,

Moody's anticipates that Onvoy will recognize substantial cost
synergies following the combination of Onvoy and Inteliquent
because of their overlapping network footprints. Rerouting Onvoy's
traffic onto Inteliquent's network will lead to the majority of
cost savings in addition to SG&A redundancies.

Moody's expects Onvoy to have good liquidity over the next twelve
months and expects the company to have approximately $20 million of
cash on the balance sheet and an undrawn $35 million revolving
credit facility following the close of the transaction. The
revolver will contain a springing leverage covenant, which Moody's
expects to be set with ample cushion in the new credit agreement.
Onvoy has limited tangible assets that could be monetized for
alternate liquidity as its assets are encumbered by the secured
bank facilities.

The ratings for debt instruments reflect both the probability of
default of Onvoy, to which Moody's assigns a PDR of B2-PD, and
individual loss given default assessments. The senior secured first
lien credit facilities are rated B1 (LGD3), one notch higher than
the CFR, given the loss absorption provided by the unrated 2nd lien
facilities.

The stable outlook reflects Moody's view that Onvoy will continue
to grow revenue and EBITDA pushing leverage below 5x (Moody's
adjusted) by fiscal year end 2018.

The B2 rating could upgraded if leverage is sustained below 4x
(Moody's adjusted) and free cash flow to debt is at least 10%. The
rating could be downgraded if liquidity deteriorates, if free cash
flow weakens or if leverage is not on track to fall below 5x
(Moody's adjusted) by fiscal year end 2018.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was "Global
Communications Infrastructure Rating Methodology" published in June
2011.

Based in Minneapolis, MN, Onvoy is a provider of network based
communications enablement services. During the last twelve months
ending Sept 30, 2016, the company generated $561 million in revenue
pro-forma for the announced acquisition of Inteliquent.


PARAGON OFFSHORE: MER Group Buying Paragon MSS2 for $219K
---------------------------------------------------------
Paragon Offshore PLC, and its affiliates ask the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the District of Delaware to authorize the private sale by
Paragon Drilling Services 7, LLC ("Seller") of MSS2, including
related assets, to MER Group Puerto Rico, LLC, for approximately
$219,160.

The proposed hearing on the Motion is on Jan. 25, 2017 at 1:00 p.m.
(ET).  The proposed objection deadline is Jan. 24, 2017 at 12:00
p.m. (ET).

The MSS2 is a semi-submersible offshore drilling rig, currently
cold-stacked at the MER Group Facility, Pier 3, Roosevelt Road,
Ceiba, Puerto Rico ("MER Facility").  The MSS2 has been
cold-stacked at its current location since April 2016, subsequent
to the termination of the Debtors' contract for drilling services
with Petroleo Brasileiro S.A. ("Petrobras").  The cost to stack the
Rig at the MER Facility is approximately $102,000 per month.

The MSS2 is approximately 40 years old, and is at the end of its
useful life.  The Debtors estimate that the required survey and
repair work to refurbish the Rig would be approximately $44,000,000
to $58,000,000.  Subsequent to the termination of the Debtors'
contract with Petrobras in April 2016, the Debtors have been unable
to procure new work for the Rig that would justify the required
refurbishment costs.  After the Petrobras contract terminated, the
Debtors examined several locations to cold-stack the Rig.  

Due to the size and design of the Rig, the Debtors determined that
a viable cold-stacking location did not exist in South America and
that the movement of the Rig would require a significant capital
expenditure.

The Debtors' current Business Plan contemplates the Debtors
scrapping the MSS2 in February 2017.  The Debtors are executing on
the Business Plan by consummating the scrapping of the Rig before
Jan. 31, 2017, enabling them to save the unnecessary costs
associated with cold-stacking the Rig for an additional month.

Pursuant to the Agreement, the Seller, owner of the MSS2, has
negotiated a contract to sell the MSS2 to the MER Facility, for
purposes of scrapping and recycling.

The salient terms of the Agreement are:

   a. Sale and Purchase of the MSS2: The Debtors have agreed to
sell, and the Buyer has agreed to purchase the MSS2, for the
purpose of recycling only.

   b. Deposit: Within 7 business days after the mutual execution of
the Agreement, the Buyer will pay the Debtors a deposit equal to
10% of the sale price, or approximately $21,916.  The Deposit may
only be refunded to the Buyer: (i) if the Closing does not occur
before Feb. 7, 2017 by reason of breach of the Agreement by the
Seller and the Buyer terminates the Agreement; (ii) if the Seller
is unable to obtain either: (a) Bankruptcy Court Approval on Jan.
31, 2017 or (b) the release of the Mortgage on or before the
Closing Date, and the Buyer terminates the Agreement; or (iii) the
Agreement terminates upon the Total Loss of the Rig.

   c. Payment of Purchase Price: The sale price for the MSS2 is
approximately $219,160 in cash (calculated on the basis of
approximately $20 per long ton of the agreed lightweight of the
Rig).

   d. Private Sale: The Agreement contemplates a private sale.

   e. Sale Motion and Order: The Agreement will not be effective or
binding on the Debtors unless the Court enters a final order
approving the Agreement.

   f. Sale Free and Clear: The Agreement contemplates that the MSS2
will be sold free and clear of all liens (other than certain
Permitted Liens).

   g. Relief from Bankruptcy Rule 6004(h): The parties
contemplated, and the Motion requests, that the 14-day stay under
Bankruptcy Rule 6004(h) be waived.

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

           
http://bankrupt.com/misc/Paragon_Offshore_1025_Sales.pdf

The Debtors' decision to conduct a private sale, as opposed to a
public auction, of the MSS2 on the terms set forth in the Agreement
reflects a reasonable exercise of their business judgment.  At
approximately 40 years old, the MSS2 has reached the end of its
useful life.  It currently costs the Debtors approximately $102,000
per month, to stack the Rig, an expense that the Debtors will avoid
by scrapping the Rig.  In addition, the sale will generate proceeds
of over $200,000.  By selling the Rig to the MER Facility prior to
Jan. 31, 2017, the Debtors hope to avoid these unnecessary and
burdensome costs. Accordingly, the Debtors ask the Court to approve
the sale of MSS2 free and clear of all liens, claims, encumbrances,
and other interests.

The Debtors ask that any order approving the sale of the MSS2 be
effective immediately upon entry of such order by providing that
the 14-day stay will not apply.  If the Debtors do not close the
Sale by Jan. 31, 2017, they run the risk of incurring substantial,
unnecessary costs upon the termination of their docking agreement.
Accordingly, the Debtors submit that the 14-day stay required by
Bankruptcy Rule 6004(h) should be waived.

PARC ENGLAND: Proposes Auction of Closed Hotel and Restaurant
-------------------------------------------------------------
Parc England Holding, L.L.C., asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the Western District of Louisiana to authorize the sale of its
interest in the hotel and restaurant located at 1321 Chappie James
Avenue, Alexandria, Louisiana, by public auction.

At the time the case was filed, the Debtor operated a hotel known
as the "Parc England Hotel" and a restaurant known as "Bistro on
the Bayou Restaurant".  The Hotel and Restaurant was operated on
immovable property owned by the England Economic and Industrial
District ("England Authority") under the terms of a lease with it.
The leased immovable property has a municipal address of 1321
Chappie James Avenue, Alexandria, Louisiana.  The Hotel and
Restaurant and other improvements were constructed by the debtor on
the leased property.  The Debtor granted a consensual first
mortgage or lien on these improvements to the Bank of Montgomery.

Pursuant to a consent order entered Sept. 7, 2016, the day-to-day
management of the debtor was exclusively vested in ALLA Associates,
LLC, a management company retained by the principal creditor, the
Bank of Montgomery.  The management company immediately closed the
hotel and restaurant and the same have remained closed since that
time.

The Debtor's representative was contacted by a representative of
RSK Investments, L.L.C., expressing an interest in the Hotel and
Restaurant.  It offered to purchase the Hotel and Restaurant which
offer was in the form of a Letter of Intent dated Oct. 14, 2016.
The offer was to purchase the Hotel and Restaurant for the sum of
$1,750,000, subject to certain conditions.  The parties could never
arrive at an agreement and the offer expired.

The Debtor's representative was contacted by Joseph Villard, of 297
Mudge Road, Boyce, Louisiana, a representative of Harvill, L.L.C.,
expressing an interest in the Hotel and Restaurant.  He (and/or It)
offered to purchase the Hotel and Restaurant for the sum of
$6,500,000.  Initially the offer was made subject to acceptance of
capital loss reserves of $16,500,000, but was recently changed to
"US dollars at the time of transfer of title."

The Debtor's representative was contacted by a representative of an
as of yet unnamed entity (to be formed by the person formerly
involved with RSK Investments) expressing an interest in the Hotel
and Restaurant.  An offer to purchase the Hotel and Restaurant was
made for the sum of $1,000,000.

While the Debtor was been actively engaged in trying to determine
the validity and details of the 2 offers, the Bank of Montgomery
filed a Motion to Dismiss, Or In The Alternative, To Convert The
Case To Chapter 7, Or Further In The Alternative, For Relief From
the Automatic Stay ("the Bank's Motion").  The motion is fixed for
hearing Feb. 1, 2016, in the Court.

After considering the various options, the Debtor believes the
property should be sold at public auction.  As the Debtor believes
there is not time to comply with the normal and customary
procedures due to the hearing scheduled on the Bank's Motion, it
seeks an order waiving the same and allowing for an auction at the
first hearing on the Motion.  In order for the auction to be held
at the first hearing, an order is required that the highest or
successful bidder pay the price with certified funds or cash
equivalent at the time of the auction or shortly thereafter as set
forth.  As a result of the expedited nature of the process there is
no request for a deposit, nor break-up fee.

In addition, the assets of the estate consists of certain
intangible assets in the form of trade names, specifically "Parc
England Hotel" and "Bistro on the Bayou Restaurant."  

The mortgage records of Rapides Parish, Louisiana, reflect these
liens affecting the property, but the validity or amount of such
liens has not been verified, to-wit:

recorded March 17, 2016, at Mortgage Book 2928, Page 23, under
Instrument No. 1571708, of the records of Rapides Parish,
Louisiana.

In addition to these liens there is in full force and effect a
lease between the debtor and the England Authority.  The lease was
originally effective July 1, 2001, involving another entity but
later amended and assigned to the Debtor.  An Abstract of the lease
dated July 1, 2001, was filed and recorded Aug. 29, 2001, at
Mortgage Book 1719, Page 859, under Instrument No. 1165527, of the
records of Rapides Parish, Louisiana.

As a result, the prospective purchaser must comply with all terms
and conditions set forth in the said lease and/or negotiate
directly with the England Authority for any changes to the lease.

The Debtor is aware that the offer from the as of yet unnamed
entity of $1,000,000 is conditioned upon the England Authority
granting to it a 50-year lease.  The said unnamed entity which is
owned by the same principal that owns RSK Investments has made an
offer to purchase the assets for the price of $1,000,000.  The
identity of the actual entity making the purchase has not yet been
established.

As further described, an offer was made by a Villard, of 297 Mudge
Road, Boyce, Louisiana, who indicated he was a representative of
Harvill.  He made an offer to purchase the Hotel and Restaurant for
the sum of $6,500,000, subject to acceptance of capital loss
reserves of $16,500,000.  When he was informed the offer would have
to be for U.S. currency, he changed the offer to be for "US dollars
at the time of transfer of title."

To the best of the knowledge of the debtor, no former officer,
director, agent, shareholder or other representative who could be
deemed an "insider" of the Debtor under 11 U.S.C. 101 (31) has a
pecuniary interest in either prospective bidder.  In addition, the
Debtor has no knowledge that such former officer, director,
shareholder or other representative of the Debtor has been promised
anything by any prospective bidder, in connection with the sale of
the assets of the Debtor.

The principal making the offer for the as of yet unnamed entity is
aware that the Property is being sold "as is," and he is familiar
with the current condition of the property.  It is not known if
Joseph Villard has any information concerning the condition of the
premises.

As stated, the Hotel and Restaurant have been closed since the
management company was appointed (late August 2016) and have
remained closed since that time.  In addition, the Bank of
Montgomery reports that it discovered black mold on the premises
and that condition has been remediated.  Further, the Bank of
Montgomery has indicated that the air conditioning and heating has
been required to be repaired.  Accordingly, the offer is made "as
is" except as to the black mold and the climate control equipment.
This limited warranty as to those items is not to be understood as
being provided by the Debtor as the Debtor has no knowledge as to
the current status of the premises.  This representation is simply
that the repairs have been made to remediate the mold and repair
the climate control equipment and is provided by the Bank of
Montgomery.  The "as is" nature of the sale applies to any offer
determined to be the last and highest valid offer.  

Since there is no time to investigate or determine the validity of
the offers made, the Debtor requests an Order requiring these:

   a. The auction will be conducted by counsel for the debtor, as
auctioneer.

   b. The auction will take place immediately following the hearing
on the Motion at the Court, in a location in the Court to be
selected by the auctioneer.

   c. The minimum or starting bid is $1,000,000.

   d. all bids in excess of that amount will be at least $5,000
more than the previous bid; and the auctioneer will have authority
to increase that amount to $25,000, if necessary in the interest of
time.

   e. The last and highest bidder, as determined by the auctioneer
will be required to deposit the amount of that bid in the trust
account of counsel for the Debtor within 72 hours after the
completion of the auction.  Should that not occur, the auctioneer
will be entitled to apply for an ex parte order setting aside the
last and highest bid and finding the next highest bid to be the
successful bid.

   f. The auctioneer will file a report of the auction with the
Court within 24 hours after the conclusion of the auction.

   g. All parties in interest are entitled to attend, observe, and
participate in the auction.

   h. The Bank of Montgomery, as the first and fully secured
lienholder, is entitled to credit bid in accordance with RadLAX
Gateway Hotel, LLC v. Amalgamated Bank, 132 S. Ct. 2065 (2012).

The Debtor is informed that the prospective purchasers have
conditioned their bids upon being able to close the sale within a
short period of time.  Therefore, the Debtor will apply to the
Court to shorten the notice period to allow for the auction to be
conducted as soon as possible.

The Debtor's decision to sell the assets is based on its sound
business judgment.  The Debtor seeks to liquidate its estate so
that it may justly and equitable compensate its creditors.  The
assets are a significant part of the Debtor's estate, and its sale
will help expedite payment to the holders of allowed claims.
Accordingly, the Debtor asks the Court to approve the sale of the
assets free of liens with the liens and encumbrances to attach to
the proceeds of the sale.

To satisfy the Liens and Claims described, the Debtor asks approval
on distributing the proceeds of the sale as follows:

   a. First, payment of all necessary costs of the sale paid by
sellers at closing, including cancellation charges, recordation
charges, real estate taxes and other closing costs attributable to
the estate.

   b. Second, to The Bank of Montgomery in the amount if its
outstanding allowed claim.

   c. Third, the remainder, if any, to be held in escrow pending
further order of the Court.

In order to facilitate a smooth and swift closing, the Debtor
further requests that from the proceeds at the closing of the sale
of the Property the closing notary, as an agent of the Debtor be
authorized to make payment of any and all necessary costs of the
sale paid by sellers at closing, including cancellation charges,
recordation charges, real estate taxes and other costs attributable
to the estate.

The Debtor further asks that any outstanding real estate taxes owed
and outstanding on the Property as of the closing date be paid by
the closing notary at closing from the sale proceeds, with
Purchaser to be responsible for real estate taxes accruing on or
after the closing date.

Lastly, the Debtor asks that it be authorized to redeem the
property from any tax sales.

As time is of the essence to the proposed sale, the Debtor asks the
Court waive 14-day automatic stay of any final order granting the
Motion and order that the final relief requested be immediately
available upon the entry of an Order approving the proposed sale.

PEABODY ENERGY: Committee Agrees to Support Plan, Rights Offering
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Peabody Energy Corporation informed the Bankruptcy Court for the
Eastern District of Missouri that the Debtors have reached a
settlement with the official committee of unsecured creditors with
respect to the Debtors':

     (a) the Joint Plan of Reorganization, and

     (b) Motion for an Order (I) Approving (A) Private Placement
Agreement and (B) Backstop Commitment Agreement; (II) Authorizing
Debtors to Enter into (A) Plan Support Agreement, (B) Private
Placement Agreement and (C) Backstop Commitment Agreement; (III)
Approving (A) Rights Offering, (B) Related Procedures and (C)
Payment of Related Expenses and (IV) Granting Related Relief.

"To resolve the issues and concerns raised by the official
committee of unsecured creditors appointed in the Debtors'
bankruptcy cases with respect to the Plan, the Disclosure
Statement, the Solicitation Motion and the Approval Motion, the
Debtors have reached a settlement agreement with the Creditors'
Committee . . . which settlement is supported by the Requisite
Members of the Noteholder Steering Committee," the Debtors said.

     1. The Committee will become a co-proponent of the Plan and
        get approval rights on matters that materially and
        adversely affect the amount of equity and cash
        distributions to holders of General Unsecured Claims that
        are not Unsecured Senior Notes Claims.

     2. General Unsecured Claims at the Encumbered Guarantor
        Debtors (Class 5B):

          * In lieu of receiving any distributions of
            (i) Reorganized PEC Common Stock, (ii) Rights
            Offering Equity Rights or (iii) if applicable, Rights
            Offering Disputed Claims Reserve Shares for holders of

            Claims in Class 5B that are Disputed as of the Rights
            Offering Record Date and later become Allowed, holders
            of Claims in Class 5B can elect to receive on account
            of their Allowed Claims a pro rata cash distribution
            from a pool of $60 million, with recoveries to be
            capped at 30% of their Allowed Claims. The treatment
            of Class 5B Claims in the Plan shall otherwise
            remain the same.

          * Cash available for payment to holders of Allowed Class
            5B Claims who make the Class 5B Cash Election will be
            limited to the Class 5B Cash Pool, which will be paid
            into a segregated account for distribution in
            accordance with the terms of the Plan to holders of
            Allowed Class 5B Claims in two installments:

            (a) $30 million on the date that is 100 days after the
                Effective Date; and

            (b) $30 million on the date that is 190 days after the
                Effective Date.

            The obligation to fund shall be deemed an
administrative
            obligation of the Debtors' estates and be reflected as
            such in any order confirming the proposed Plan.

          * To the extent that less than $60 million is required
            to fund a 30% distribution to holders of Allowed Class

            5B Claims who make the Class 5B Cash Election, the
            excess shall be retained by the Reorganized Debtors.

  3. General Unsecured Claims at PEC (Class 5A):

          * The amount of cash available for distribution to
Holders
            of Allowed General Unsecured Claims against PEC (Class

            5A) that are not Convenience Claims in Class 6A shall
            be increased from $3 million to $5 million.

  4. Treatment for holders of Convenience Claims at PEC (Class
     6A) and the Encumbered Guarantor Debtors (Class 6B) shall
     remain as proposed in the Plan.

  5. Plan modified to include "Creditors' Committee and its
     members (solely in their capacities as such)" in the
     definition of "Released Parties".

  6. In exchange for the modifications being incorporated into the
     Plan, the Committee shall agree to:

          * provide a letter in support of confirmation of the
            Plan and encouraging all holders of General Unsecured
            Claims to vote in favor of the Plan, which letter
            shall be included with the solicitation materials
            for the Plan;

          * file pleadings in support of the Plan, including
            supporting declarations, that may be necessary or
            appropriate;

          * not directly or indirectly object to, delay, impede
            or take any other action to materially interfere
            with acceptance, confirmation, consummation or
            implementation of the Plan;

          * not directly or indirectly seek, solicit, encourage,
            formulate, consent to, propose, file, support,
            negotiate or participate in any restructuring,
            workout, plan of reorganization or liquidation,
            proposal, offer, dissolution, winding up, liquidation,

            reorganization, merger, consolidation, business
            combination, joint venture, partnership, or sale of
            assets of or in respect of the Debtors or their
            non-debtor affiliates other than the Plan or
            encourage or cause any party to do any of the
            foregoing; and

          * take any and all necessary or appropriate actions in
            furtherance of the restructuring and the transactions
            contemplated under the Plan and the Plan Documents.

  7. Notwithstanding section 6 hereof, nothing shall be deemed to
     limit any of the rights of the Committee, to the extent
     consistent with this Agreement, to appear and participate
     as a party in interest in any matter to be adjudicated in
     the Chapter 11 Cases so long as such appearance or
     participation and the positions advocated in connection
     therewith are not inconsistent with this Agreement, and
     do not hinder, delay or prevent consummation of the Plan.

  8. On or before January 24, 2017 at 4:00 p.m. (ET), the
     Committee shall have the right to terminate this
     agreement to support a fully committed equity financing,
     confirmable, and superior alternative transaction other
     than the Plan solely to the extent termination is
     believed necessary to comply with the Committee's
     fiduciary obligations under applicable law.

  9. From and after the date this term sheet is filed with
     the Bankruptcy Court, the Committee will not, and
     will not permit any of their respective representatives,
     to initiate contact with, or solicit any inquiries,
     proposals or offers from any party (other than the
     Debtors and the Creditor Co-Proponents) with respect
     to any alternative transactions; provided, however, that
     the Committee and its representatives may review and
     consider any inquiries, proposals or offers with respect
     to an alternative transaction so long as such proposal
     was not obtained, pursued, facilitated or solicited by
     them in violation of the provisions set forth.

10. To the extent the Committee or any of its agents or
     representatives receive any inquiry, proposal or offer
     with respect to any alternative transaction, the Committee
     shall provide the Debtors and the Creditor Co-Proponents
     (subject to mutually agreed terms of confidentiality) and
     their counsel with a copy of and/or any details regarding
     such proposal upon receipt and no later than one day
     after receipt.

11. If the Committee exercises the Fiduciary Out, it will
     not seek a continuance or delay of the January 26, 2017
     hearing to approve the Disclosure Statement, the
     Private Placement Agreement, the Backstop Commitment
     Agreement and the Plan Support Agreement.

12. The Committee will provide counsel for the Plan
     Co-Proponents a copy of its draft objection to the
     Transaction Agreements by noon on January 18, 2017.
     This agreement shall not be construed as tolling or
     extending any of the Committee's objection deadlines.

13. From and after the date this term sheet is filed with
     the Bankruptcy Court, all depositions related to the
     approval of the Disclosure Statement or the Transaction
     Agreements shall be discontinued and cancelled, and the
     Committee shall not seek further discovery from the
     Debtors or Creditor Co-Proponents; provided, however,
     that the Committee and its representatives shall be
     permitted to seek discovery with respect to the
     Transaction Agreements following termination of this
     agreement pursuant to the Fiduciary Out.

14. If the Committee does not exercise the Fiduciary Out,
     an amended Plan and Disclosure Statement reflecting the
     agreed changes set forth herein will be filed after
     January 24, 2017 at 4:00 p.m. (ET) and in no event
     later than the start of the hearing to approve the
     Disclosure Statement on January 26, 2017. If the
     Committee exercises the Fiduciary Out, the Debtors
     and the Noteholder Co-Proponents shall have no
     obligation to file such an amended Plan and Disclosure
     Statement. If the Committee exercises the Fiduciary Out,
     the consent of the Debtors and the Noteholder
     Co-Proponents to the changes to the Plan set forth
     shall be null and void and of no effect, and the
     Debtors and the Noteholder Co-Proponents reserve their
     rights to make any further changes to the Plan they
     deem necessary or appropriate in response to the
     Committee's opposition to its approval.

15. The Plan shall establish a post-Effective Date claims
     reconciliation process for the reconciliation of
     claims that would be satisfied from the Class 5B Cash
     Pool. A designee from the Committee would be appointed
     as the co-administrator for the reconciliation process
     under the Plan (the "Designated Co-Administrator"). The
     fees and costs of the Designated Co-Administrator
     associated with the reconciliation process shall be
     paid by the Reorganized Debtors up to the amount of
     $3 million. Prior to the Effective Date, the allowance
     of any GUC claim that will impact distributions from
     the Class 5B Cash Pool, including if the aggregate
     amount of claims to be settled is for the benefit of
     a single claimant, that exceeds $2 million shall
     require Committee consent.

The Debtors intend to file amended versions of the Plan and the
Disclosure Statement to reflect the terms of the Committee
Settlement before the commencement of the hearing to approve the
Disclosure Statement.

The Debtors on January 16, 2017, also filed with the Bankruptcy
Court a liquidation analysis and certain projected financial
information as exhibits to the Disclosure Statement.  The projected
financial information filed with the Bankruptcy Court is consistent
with the illustrative sources and uses for the Plan.

                About Peabody Energy Corporation

Headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri, Peabody Energy Corporation
claims to be the world's largest private-sector coal company.  As
of Dec. 31, 2014, the Company owned interests in 26 active coal
mining operations located in the United States (U.S.) and
Australia.  The Company has a majority interest in 25 of those
mining operations and a 50% equity interest in the Middlemount
Mine
in Australia.  In addition to its mining operations, the Company
markets and brokers coal from other coal producers, both as
principal and agent, and trade coal and freight-related contracts
through trading and business offices in Australia, China, Germany,
India, Indonesia, Singapore, the United Kingdom and the U.S.

Peabody posted a net loss of $1.988 billion for 2015, wider from
the net loss of $777 million in 2014 and the $513 million net loss
in 2013.

At Dec. 31, 2015, the Company had total assets of $11.02 billion
against $10.1 billion in total liabilities, and stockholders'
equity of $919 million.

On April 13, 2016, Peabody Energy Corp. and 153 affiliates filed
voluntary petitions for relief under Chapter 11 of the United
States Bankruptcy Code.  The 154 cases are pending joint
administration before the Honorable Judge Barry S. Schermer under
(Bankr. E.D. Mo. Case No. 16-42529).

As of the Petition Date, PEC has approximately $4.3 billion in
outstanding secured debt obligations and $4.5 billion in
outstanding unsecured debt obligations.

The Debtors tapped Jones Day as general counsel; Armstrong,
Teasdale LLP as local counsel; Lazard Freres & Co. LLC and
investment banker Lazard PTY Limited as investment banker; FTI
Consulting, Inc., as financial advisors; and Kurtzman Carson
Consultants, LLC, as claims, ballot and noticing agent.

The Office of the U.S. Trustee on April 29, 2016, appointed seven
creditors of Peabody Energy Corp. to serve on the official
committee of unsecured creditors.  The Committee retained Morrison
& Foerster LLP as counsel, Spencer Fane LLP as local counsel,
Curtis, Mallet-Prevost, Colt & Mosle LLP as conflicts counsel,
Blackacre LLC as its independent expert, and Berkeley Research
Group, LLC, as financial advisor.


PEABODY ENERGY: Debtors, UCC Balk at Bid for Equity Panel
---------------------------------------------------------
Peabody Energy Corporation and the Official Committee of Unsecured
Creditors appointed in the Debtors' chapter 11 bankruptcy cases
tell the Bankruptcy Court that an official equity security holders
committee is not necessary in the case.  They ask the Court to
reject the request of The Mangrove Partners Master Fund, Ltd. for
appointment of an equity committee.

According to the Debtors, Mangrove has not shown that there is a
substantial likelihood of meaningful recoveries for equity security
holders of PEC common stock, and that its assertion to the contrary
is based upon an analysis containing errors and mistaken
assumptions. When these errors and mistaken assumptions are
corrected, Mangrove's analysis shows that Equity Holders have no
meaningful opportunity for recovery.

"This reality is borne out by the Debtors' proposed Joint Plan of
Reorganization," the Debtors explain, "which has received support
from, as of January 6, 2017, holders of approximately 40.7% of the
Debtors' outstanding First Lien Lender Claims (as defined in the
Plan), 94.9% of the outstanding principal amount of the Debtors'
Second Lien Notes Claims (as defined in the Plan) and 80.3% of
outstanding principal amount of the Debtors' Unsecured Senior Notes
Claims (as defined in the Plan). Many of the Debtors' creditors
would receive only a fractional recovery on their claims, including
general unsecured creditors and Unsecured Senior Noteholders (as
defined in the Plan) who would receive an estimated 21% recovery,
if the Plan is confirmed. Under the absolute priority rule, Equity
Holders cannot receive any recovery until all the Debtors'
creditors are made whole.  Because Equity Holders cannot recover
anything unless the Debtors' creditors are paid in full, the
appointment of an official committee of Equity Holders will serve
only to deplete estate assets through the payment of another set of
professionals."

The Debtors also contend that the interests of Equity Holders are
adequately represented in these chapter 11 cases.  The Creditors'
Committee, the Debtors' board of directors and management and
Mangrove's own sophisticated professionals all are capable and
committed to protecting Mangrove's interest in these chapter 11
cases.

The Debtors also believe the Motion is untimely.  Nearly nine
months have passed since the Debtors filed these chapter 11 cases.
In the last four months, the Debtors have spent significant time
negotiating the terms and provisions of the Plan with many of their
key creditor constituencies. As a result of these efforts, the
Debtors' Plan, filed on December 22, 2016, is supported by
significant groups of the Debtors' First Lien Lenders, Second Lien
Noteholders and Unsecured Senior Noteholders.

The Committee also contends that Mangrove has failed to carry its
heavy burden of demonstrating that there is a substantial
likelihood that the Debtors' equity holders will receive a
meaningful distribution under a strict application of the absolute
priority rule and that the interests of equity holders cannot be
adequately represented without an official committee.  

The Creditors' Committee asserts that appointment of an official
equity committee is considered "extraordinary relief" and is the
"rare exception."  According to the Creditors' Committee, while a
full valuation analysis is not needed to prevail on a motion
seeking appointment of an equity committee, Mangrove has offered no
affirmative evidence in support of a valuation scenario under which
equity would be entitled to a distribution and has made no attempt
to show that equity is in the money. Rather, Mangrove merely
observes that there was a recent upturn in spot coal prices and
speculates that "equity is poised to recover meaningful value as
long as metallurgical and thermal coal prices stabilize around
$145/ton and $77/ton or higher . . . ."

PEABODY ENERGY: Liberty Mutual Balks at Bid to Approve Exit Loans
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Liberty Mutual Insurance Company objects to the request of Peabody
Energy Corporation to enter into an exit financing commitment
letter to the extent that the Motion seeks to include irrevocable
letters of credit in the collateral securing the Exit Facility.

Liberty is the surety on numerous miscellaneous commercial bonds
that named the Debtors or their affiliates as principal, primarily
in connection with reclamation activities.

Liberty contends that the ILOC is not property of the Debtors'
estates.  Liberty wants the Court to rule that any liens granted to
the Debtors' Lenders are junior to and do not otherwise prejudice
the rights and interests of Liberty in and to the ILOC.

Peabody Energy on January 11, 2017, obtained an exit facility
commitment letter from:

     -- Goldman Sachs Bank USA, as administrative agent and
lender;

     -- JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., as arranger and lender;

     -- Credit Suisse AG, acting through such of its affiliates or
branches as it deems appropriate, as lender;

     -- Credit Suisse Securities (USA),

     -- Macquarie Capital Funding LLC, and

     -- Macquarie Capital (USA) Inc.,

pursuant to which, in connection with the consummation of the
proposed Plan, the Initial Lenders -- Macquarie Capital Funding,
Goldman Sachs, Credit Suisse AG and JPMorgan -- have agreed to
provide a senior secured term loan facility in an aggregate amount
of (a) $1.5 billion, less (b) the aggregate principal amount of
privately placed debt securities of the Company, or special purpose
escrow issuer, issued on or prior to the closing date of the Term
Loan Facility, plus (c) any amount of additional senior secured
term loans funded on the Closing Date at the sole discretion of the
Arrangers -- CS Securities, Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan -- and the
Company.

The commitments of the Commitment Parties to provide the Term Loan
Facility are subject to certain conditions set forth in the Exit
Facility Commitment Letter, including but not limited to the
occurrence or waiver of all conditions precedent to the
effectiveness of the Plan, other than the closing and funding of
the Term Loan Facility (and the Notes issued in lieu thereof, if
any).

The Exit Facility Commitment Letter will terminate upon the
occurrence of certain events described therein. In addition, the
Initial Lenders' commitments to provide and arrange the Term Loan
Facility will terminate on a dollar-for-dollar basis to the extent
of the issuance of the Notes. The outside termination date for the
Exit Facility Commitment Letter is May 1, 2017.

Specifically, the Commitment Letter provides that each Initial
Lender's commitment and each Commitment Party's agreements
hereunder will terminate upon the earliest of: (a) at any time by
the Company with or without cause effective upon receipt by the
Commitment Parties of notice to that effect from the Company, (b)
January 30, 2017, unless as of such date the Authorization Order
has been entered and is otherwise in full force and effect, (c) at
any time that the Plan Support Agreement shall have terminated or
been modified in a manner that is materially adverse to the
Arrangers or the Lenders without consent of the Arrangers, (d) May
1, 2017, unless as of such date (A) the Bankruptcy Court has
entered a final and non-appealable order confirming the Plan, which
confirmation order shall be, to the extent material to the
Commitment Parties, in form and substance reasonably acceptable to
each of the Commitment Parties, and (B) the Debtors have emerged
from the Bankruptcy Cases, (e) upon the termination, abandonment or
withdrawal of, the Plan by the Debtors, and (f) upon the emergence
of the Debtors from the Bankruptcy Cases, unless, in the case of
clause (f), the closing of the Term Loan Facility, on the terms and
subject to the conditions contained herein, has been consummated on
or before such date.

On January 11, 2017, the Debtors filed a motion with the Bankruptcy
Court seeking authorization to enter into and perform under the
Exit Facility Commitment Letter.

A copy of the Commitment Letter is available at
https://is.gd/IVXJnx

The Term Loan Facility Commitments are:

     Bank Commitment Party              Term Loan Facility

     Goldman Sachs Bank USA            50.0%    $750,000,000
     JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A          22.5%    $337,500,000

     Macquarie Capital Funding LLC      5.0%     $75,000,000

                About Peabody Energy Corporation

Headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri, Peabody Energy Corporation
claims to be the world's largest private-sector coal company.  As
of Dec. 31, 2014, the Company owned interests in 26 active coal
mining operations located in the United States (U.S.) and
Australia.  The Company has a majority interest in 25 of those
mining operations and a 50% equity interest in the Middlemount
Mine
in Australia.  In addition to its mining operations, the Company
markets and brokers coal from other coal producers, both as
principal and agent, and trade coal and freight-related contracts
through trading and business offices in Australia, China, Germany,
India, Indonesia, Singapore, the United Kingdom and the U.S.

Peabody posted a net loss of $1.988 billion for 2015, wider from
the net loss of $777 million in 2014 and the $513 million net loss
in 2013.

At Dec. 31, 2015, the Company had total assets of $11.02 billion
against $10.1 billion in total liabilities, and stockholders'
equity of $919 million.

On April 13, 2016, Peabody Energy Corp. and 153 affiliates filed
voluntary petitions for relief under Chapter 11 of the United
States Bankruptcy Code.  The 154 cases are pending joint
administration before the Honorable Judge Barry S. Schermer under
(Bankr. E.D. Mo. Case No. 16-42529).

As of the Petition Date, PEC has approximately $4.3 billion in
outstanding secured debt obligations and $4.5 billion in
outstanding unsecured debt obligations.

The Debtors tapped Jones Day as general counsel; Armstrong,
Teasdale LLP as local counsel; Lazard Freres & Co. LLC and
investment banker Lazard PTY Limited as investment banker; FTI
Consulting, Inc., as financial advisors; and Kurtzman Carson
Consultants, LLC, as claims, ballot and noticing agent.

The Office of the U.S. Trustee on April 29, 2016, appointed seven
creditors of Peabody Energy Corp. to serve on the official
committee of unsecured creditors.  The Committee retained Morrison
& Foerster LLP as counsel, Spencer Fane LLP as local counsel,
Curtis, Mallet-Prevost, Colt & Mosle LLP as conflicts counsel,
Blackacre LLC as its independent expert, and Berkeley Research
Group, LLC, as financial advisor.


PEABODY ENERGY: Mangrove's Equity Panel Bid Gains Support
---------------------------------------------------------
An Ad Hoc Committee of Non-Consenting Creditors -- whose members
are the beneficial holders of, or are investment managers or
advisors to funds and/or accounts that are the beneficial holders
of, among other things, Second Lien Notes, Unsecured Notes, and
Convertible Subordinated Debentures -- expressed its support to the
request of The Mangrove Partners Master Fund, Ltd. for an order
appointing an Official Committee of Equity Security Holders in
Peabody Energy's bankruptcy case.

The Debtors are "not hopelessly insolvent," according to the
Group.

The group tells the Court that in objecting to the Motion, the
Debtors will no doubt make reference to the plan of reorganization
that they and a select group of their creditors have recently
co-proposed and the need to confirm it expeditiously.  

The Ad Hoc Committee has already made clear to the Court its
initial views on the Proposed Plan, including that the Proposed
Plan inappropriately disenfranchises certain stakeholders, notably
holders of prepetition convertible notes and equity interests.  

"It bears repeating, however, that the Proposed Plan does not use
an objectively determined enterprise value in determining the
relative entitlements of the Debtors’ stakeholders. Instead, the
Proposed Plan is premised upon a Plan Enterprise Value "agreed" to
by parties with an incentive to ascribe an unjustifiably low value
to the Debtors that bears no relationship to either the Debtors'
performance or objective market conditions. This use of an
unfounded enterprise value is an inappropriate basis for
determining the entitlements of stakeholders," the group says.

The group reminds the Court that the Debtors have outperformed
their own expectations in these cases.  No longer strapped for cash
in the present price and demand environment, the Debtors:

     -- Exceeded their own cash generation forecasts in the
original DIP budget every single month while in bankruptcy;

     -- Voluntarily repaid their DIP obligations in December, four
months ahead of schedule; and

     -- Are expected, according to the business update attached
their most recent 8-K, to have (together with their non-Debtor
subsidiaries) approximately $1.35 billion in cash at emergence.

The Debtors' liquidity position -- a crucial component of the
decision to file for bankruptcy -- has improved considerably, and
all signs indicate that stabilizing prices and growing demand is
the norm, not an aberration. Taken together, these objective
factors demonstrate that the Debtors are not hopelessly insolvent.

Despite favorable market conditions, the Debtors continue to use
depressed assumptions in their business plan, according to the
group.

Meanwhile, JAZ Ventures, LP, a holder of common stock issued by
Peabody Energy, gave its support to Mangrove Partners' request.
Mangrove indicated that Mr. Judson Kroh has expressed an interest
and willingness to serve on the Equity Committee.  Mr. Kroh is the
principal and representative of JAZ.

PERFORMANCE SPORTS: Seeks OK of Pre-Closing Reorganization Deals
----------------------------------------------------------------
BPS US Holdings Inc., and its debtor-affiliates ask the Bankruptcy
Court to approve certain corporate restructuring transactions in
connection with and prior to the closing of the Debtors'
going-concern sale.

According to the Debtors, the Pre-Closing Reorganization is
necessary to, among  other things, minimize the possibility of an
estimated Cdn $10 million or more in potential tax liability on the
sale of the Debtors' assets ensures that assets in European legal
structures are appropriately repatriated to the Debtors' estates,
and satisfies intercompany payables and receivables between certain
of the Debtors incorporated in Canada and foreign non-Debtor
entities that will be acquired by the purchaser.

The Pre-Closing Reorganization involves these steps:

     a) Canada Realignment

             i) In Canada, the Canadian Debtors that are direct or

                indirect subsidiaries of Performance Sports Group
                Ltd., the Canadian parent of all the Debtors, will
                implement a short-form vertical amalgamation under
                Canadian company -- Amalco -- for the Debtors.  
                Pursuant to the laws of B.C., the property, rights

                and interests of each Canadian Debtor continue to
                be the property, rights and interests of Amalco
                and Amalco continues to be liable for the
                obligations of each Canadian Debtor.  

            ii) For Canadian tax purposes, the amalgamation of the
                separate Canadian Debtors into a single legal
                entity consolidates the tax attributes and tax
                liabilities thereby maximizing tax efficiencies
                across the Canadian corporate group in connection
                with the Sale.  

     b) The Intercompany Loan Clean-up

             i) By way of background, a number of intercompany
                loans and variable trade balances exist by and
                among certain of the Canadian Debtors and the
                non-Debtors, and by and among certain of the
                non-Debtors.  The Foreign Intercompany Obligations
                include trade accounts payable/receivable and
                intercompany loans.

            ii) The Foreign Intercompany Obligations will be
                addressed through a series of offsets,
                assignments, dividends and distributions by and
                among the non-Debtors and the Canadian Debtors,
                and by and among the non-Debtors.

           iii) If any amounts owing by a Debtor to one of the
                entities that the Stalking Horse Purchaser will
                acquire under the Stalking Horse Agreement, or
                by an Acquired Entity and a selling Debtor,
                cannot be settled either in the manner described
                or through an alternative Pre-Closing
                Reorganization pursuant to Section 5.18 of the
                Stalking Horse Agreement, then such amounts will
                be settled for no consideration prior to the
                Closing Date as part of the Sale.  

     c) The Luxco Unwind

        By way of background, the funds used to acquire the
        Easton baseball/softball business in 2014 were borrowed by

        the parent company, PSG, and transferred to an acquisition
        vehicle through a series of intercompany loans and
        contributions.  The loans, and related tax efficient
        structures including Debtor BPS Canada Intermediate Corp.,

        and non-Debtor BPS Luxembourg S.a.r.l. ("Luxco"), remain
        in place but will no longer serve any viable corporate
        function after the Sale closes.  Moreover, their continued

        existence after the Sale closes would raise a risk that
        income could be imputed to the Canadian estates for
        Canadian income tax purposes.  Accordingly, through the
        Pre-Closing Reorganization, the Debtors intend to implement

        the Luxco Unwind to eliminate intercompany receivables,
        dissolve the corporate legal entities that are no longer
        needed and repatriate cash to the Debtors.  Following the
        Canada Realignment, the Luxco Unwind will include these
        steps:

             i) Luxco has a loan payable to Amalco in the amount
                of $247 million (the "BHC Note").  Luxco has a
loan
                receivable from U.S. Debtor BPS US Holdings Inc.
                in the amount of $250 million (the "BPS US Note").
                Luxco also has an upstream loan payable to Amalco
                in the amount of $420,626.

            ii) Luxco will repay the BHC Note (a) in kind by
                transferring $247 million of the BPS US Note to
                Amalco and (b) repaying $3 million of capital to
                Amalco by distributing the remaining $3 million
                of the BPS US Note.  

           iii) Luxco will pay an in-kind dividend equal to the
                amount of the upstream loan (i.e., $420,626) to
                Amalco.  

            iv) Luxco will declare and pay a dividend equal to the
                remaining cash in the corporation and the amount
                of accrued interest owing to it under the BPS US
                Note, less liabilities, after which Luxco will be
                dissolved.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter, the Debtors have
entered into an agreement for the going-concern sale of
substantially all of the Company's assets to a group of investors
led by Sagard Capital Partners, L.P., subject to a Court-supervised
auction process.  Pursuant to the Stalking Horse Agreement, the
Stalking Horse Purchaser has agreed to acquire substantially all of
the Debtors' assets for the base purchase price of U.S. $575
million (subject to certain adjustments), plus the assumption of
related operating liabilities, and serve as a "stalking horse"
bidder in the Bankruptcy Proceedings.

On Nov. 30, 2016, the Court entered an order approving bid
procedures to govern the Sale.  The Court established a bid
deadline of Jan. 25, 2017, scheduled an auction for January 30,
2017, and scheduled a hearing on Feb. 6, 2017 to consider the Sale.


On Jan. 6, 2017, Performance Sports entered into a First Amendment
to the Asset Purchase Agreement, dated as of Oct. 31, 2016, by and
among the Company, the subsidiaries of the Company party thereto
and 9938982 Canada Inc., an acquisition entity financed by Sagard
Holdings Inc. and Fairfax Financial Holdings Limited.  The First
Amendment amends the Asset Purchase Agreement in response to the
Bidding Procedures Orders entered by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court and
the CCAA Court, and provides, among other things, that (1) the
amount of the "good faith deposit" that the Purchaser was required
to deposit pursuant to the terms of the Asset Purchase Agreement be
reduced to $17,250,000, (2) the amount of the break-up fee payable
to the Purchaser upon the consummation of an alternate transaction
or in certain other circumstances where the transactions
contemplated by the Asset Purchase Agreement are not consummated,
in each case in accordance with the Asset Purchase Agreement, be
reduced to $17,250,000, and (3) certain key dates (including the
targeted closing date and the deadline for the entry of the Sales
Orders (as defined in the Asset Purchase Agreement)) be extended.

PROFESSIONAL MEDICAL: Unsecureds to Get 100% at 3% in 120 Months
----------------------------------------------------------------
Professional Medical Management filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the District of Arizona a first disclosure statement
referring to the Debtor's first plan of reorganization dated Jan.
18, 2017.

Class 4 Unsecured Deficiency Claims and Unsecured Claims --
estimated at $28,373.76, which does not include any deficiency
amounts for secured creditors -- is impaired under the Plan.

The Plan provides that each and every holder of a Class 4 Allowed
Claim will be paid 100% of the allowed amount of their claims at
3.0% interest on the unpaid balance in 120 equal monthly
installments with the first payment due 60 days from the Effective
Date.  Any liens held by the Class 4 creditors will be null and
void and removed as of the Effective Date.

The Plan contemplates that secured creditors will be paid the full
amount of their allowed claims.  The Debtor does not believe a new
capital contribution is required as allowed claims are being paid
in full.

Potential investors may be allowed to acquire a percentage of
interest or a percentage thereof, in the Reorganized Debtor.  These
proceeds, in conjunction with the property's revenues and inherent
future appreciation, will provide the necessary funds to the Debtor
to pay creditors under the Plan.

PROWLER ACQUISITION: S&P Alters Outlook to Neg. & Affirms CCC+ CCR
------------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said it revised its outlook on Houston-based
specialty product distributor Prowler Acquisition Corp. to negative
from stable.  At the same time, S&P Global Ratings affirmed its
'CCC+' long-term corporate credit rating on the company.

S&P Global Ratings also lowered its issue-level rating on Prowler's
senior secured first-lien term loan and revolving credit facility
one notch to 'CCC+' from 'B-'.  S&P Global Ratings revised its
recovery rating on the debt to '3' from '2'.  A '3' recovery
rating, indicates an expectations for meaningful (50%-70%; higher
end of the scale) recovery in the event of default.

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

"The negative outlook reflects our view that the company could
consider a distressed exchange offer over the next two years," said
S&P Global Ratings credit analyst Valiant Ip.  This is based on
S&P's view that the company's financial performance is
unsustainable without any favorable business and market conditions,
given that its debt will be maturing in the next two to three
years.  The affirmation on the corporate credit rating reflects
from S&P's view that, although the company's financial landscape
and the associated credit metrics have deteriorated considerably
since 2015, S&P believes Prowler will continue to have adequate
liquidity to cover its operating and capital expenditures and make
its principal and interests payments over the next 12 months
without violating any financial covenant under the revolving credit
facility.

The downgrade on Prowler's senior secured first-lien term loan and
the revolving credit facility one notch is based on S&P's
assessment that the recovery expectations for the debt would be at
the higher end of the 50%-70% range.  (Previously, S&P had assessed
recovery in the 70%-90% range and notched up the senior debt one
notch as a result.)

Due to low oil prices and unfavorable market conditions and delays
to some projects in the midstream sector, S&P's adjusted-EBITDA for
Prowler at fiscal year-end 2016 is estimated at about
$27 million, a decrease of more than 28% from fiscal year-end 2015.
In S&P's view, Prowler relies heavily on new build projects in the
midstream sector to drive revenue growth, as they represent more
than 40% of total revenues.  Moreover, revenues from the midstream
sector represent more than 50% of the company's total revenue.  As
a result, any significant delays to the major projects in the
midstream sector would have a material impact on the company's
revenue.

The 'CCC+' rating reflects S&P's view of Prowler as vulnerable and
dependent on favorable business, financial, and economic conditions
to meet its financial obligations.  Therefore, the business risk
and financial risk profiles are no longer the determining factors
in assessing the credit risk on the company.

S&P's key concern at the current corporate credit rating level is
the company's ability to meet its financial obligations without
violating any of the financial covenants over the next 12 months.

The negative outlook reflects S&P's view that there is a
possibility that the company could consider a distressed exchange
offer over the next 24 months without any favorable market and
financial conditions, given that its debt will be maturing in the
next two to three years.

S&P could lower the rating if there is further deterioration in
Prowler's financial performance or a substantial draw on remaining
liquidity sources, resulting in a heightened risk of default in the
next 12 months.  In this situation S&P expects that the company is
likely to consider a distressed exchange offer.

S&P could revise the outlook back to stable if market conditions
improve, resulting in stronger demand for new build projects in the
midstream sector and increased demand in the downstream segment
leading to a material improvement in S&P's adjusted EBITDA to $33
million-$35 million range.


QUINN'S JUNCTION: Intends to Continue Using Cash Thru April 30
--------------------------------------------------------------
Quinn's Junction Properties, LC, asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the District of Utah for final authorization to use the cash
collateral for the operation of its business in the ordinary course
through April 30, 2017.

The Debtor owns real property improved with facilities including a
film studio, soundstages, production offices and related
structures, commonly known as the Park City Film Studios in Park
City, UT.  The real property is managed and operated by the
Debtor's wholly-owned subsidiary, Park City Film Studios
Development Company, LC.

The Debtor relates that the real property generates rental income
which constitutes cash collateral of the Debtor's creditors. The
Debtor further relates that the rental income is received by Park
City Film.

The cash collateral Budget for the period from February 1, 2017 to
April 30, 2017, reflects total estimated cash expenditures of
$124,240 for Quinn's Junction Properties and $180,192 for Park City
Film Studios.

The Debtor tells the Court that it had previously obtained approval
for two rounds of postpetition financing from R3 Media Corporation
in the aggregate amount of $200,000.  The Debtor anticipates
obtaining additional loans as needed from R3 Media.  The Debtor
also tells the Court that the loans from R3 Media provide the
primary source for funding payment of postpetition operating
expenses and/or administrative expenses of the Debtor.

The Debtor contends that Bank of Utah has a secured claim of
approximately $4 million, pursuant to a construction loan secured
by a first position deed of trust on the Real Property.  The Debtor
adds that Quinn Capital Partners, LLC, with its principal Gary
Crandall and entities owned by Mr. Crandall including Newpark
Retail, LLC, and Harmony Health, LLC, assert second and third liens
on the Real Property.  Quinn Capital asserts a junior lien on the
rents.

The Debtor says that it entered into a Court-approved adequate
protection stipulation with the Bank of Utah, which provides that
the Debtor will make interest-only payments of $23,883 per 30-day
month to the Bank of Utah, pursuant to the Bank of Utah's secured
loan.

The Debtor submits that Quinn Capital, as well as Bank of Utah,
will be adequately protected because there is an equity cushion in
the Real Property which vastly exceeds the combined value of all
liens on the Real Property.

In addition, the Debtor tells the Court that Quinn Capital is also
adequately protected because of (a) the payments that the Debtor
will make to Bank of Utah on account of Bank of Utah's first
priority secured claim, (b) through the R3M loans to fund the
continued operation of the Real Property, and (c) the enhancements
in the value of the Real Property that naturally results from its
operation.

RENNOVA HEALTH: Director's Death Triggers Nasdaq Noncompliance
--------------------------------------------------------------
Rennova Health, Inc. filed a current report on Form 8-K with the
Securities and Exchange Commission on Dec. 21, 2016, to disclose
that one of the Company's independent directors, Benjamin Frank,
passed away on Dec. 18, 2016.

On Jan. 11, 2017, the Company was notified by Nasdaq that the
Company no longer complies with Nasdaq's audit committee
requirements as set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5605, which
requires the audit committee of the Company's board of directors to
have at least three members, each of whom must be independent
directors as defined under the Rule.  

In accordance with Nasdaq Rule 5605(c)(4), the Company has a cure
period in order to regain compliance.  The Company has until the
earlier of its next annual shareholders' meeting or Dec. 18, 2017,
to regain compliance; or, if the Company's next annual
shareholders' meeting is held before June 16, 2017, then the
Company must evidence compliance no later than June 16, 2017.  If
the Company does not regain compliance by the foregoing applicable
dates, then Nasdaq will provide written notification to the Company
that its securities will be delisted.  The Company expects that it
will appoint a replacement for Mr. Frank and regain compliance with
the Rule within the required timeframe.

                         About Rennova

Rennova Health, Inc., is a vertically integrated provider of a
suite of healthcare related products and services.  Its principal

supportive software solutions and decision support and informatics
operations services.

The Company reported a net loss attributable to the Company's
common shareholders of $36.4 million for the year ended Dec. 31,
2015, following net income attributable to the Company's common
shareholders of $2.81 million for the year ended Dec. 31, 2014.

The Company said in its annual report for the year ended Dec. 31,
2015, that "Although our financial statements have been prepared on
a going concern basis, we have recently accumulated significant
losses and have negative cash flows from operations, which raise
substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going
concern.

"If we are unable to improve our liquidity position we may not be
able to continue as a going concern.  The accompanying consolidated
financial statements do not include any adjustments that might
result if we are unable to continue as a going concern and,
therefore, be required to realize our assets and discharge our
liabilities other than in the normal course of business which could
cause investors to suffer the loss of all or a substantial portion
of their investment."


RENT-A-CENTER INC: S&P Puts 'BB-' CCR on CreditWatch Negative
-------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings placed its ratings, including the 'BB-'
corporate credit rating, on Texas-based Rent-A-Center Inc. on
CreditWatch with negative implications.

Rent-A-Center has pre-announced weak fourth-quarter
comparable-store sales below S&P's expectations and lowered its
2016 earnings guidance.

The CreditWatch placement follows the company's announcement that
same-store sales in its core business, which represents about 70%
of overall revenues, declined 14% in the fourth quarter of 2016.
Rent-A-Center also reported higher promotions, elevated payment
delinquencies in its rental portfolio, and an overall 10% reduction
in revenue stream per store.

The negative CreditWatch placement indicates at least a 50% chance
that S&P could lower the ratings at least one notch in the next
three months.  The extent of any downgrade will incorporate S&P's
view of Rent-A-Center's ability to cope with the cyclical decline
of the overall RTO industry, effectively compete with its main
competitor Aaron's, and move past the internal systems outages and
staffing issues it has faced recently.

Amid the low interest rate environment of the past few years, the
company's target subprime consumers have had increased access to
credit options from commercial banks and consumer finance
companies.  S&P believes heightened consumer education has also
informed customers of the full cost of the RTO transaction if taken
to full term.  In S&P's view, if these challenges continue, they
could more than offset the company's various operating initiatives
on a sustained basis and affect both Rent-A-Center's competitive
standing and credit metrics.

S&P expects to resolve the CreditWatch placement within the next
few months, after evaluating the severity and pace of ongoing weak
operating trends, gaining clarity on covenant compliance (inclusive
of any potential amendment to resolve the breach of the minimum
fixed-charge coverage covenant if it occurs), and understanding the
financial impact of store closures and initiatives to improve
delinquencies and collections in the company's RTO portfolio.


RO & SONS INC: Has Authorization to Use Cash Collateral
-------------------------------------------------------
Judge Eduardo V Rodriguez of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of Texas authorized Ro & Sons, Inc., d/b/a Motel
9, to use cash collateral.  

The Debtor will be allowed to use the cash collateral in the amount
of $52,558 per month to continue to operate its business, in
accordance with the approved Budget.  

Falcon Bank was granted a replacement lien on all income of the
Debtor, to include contract for deed payments, rents, and any and
all accounts receivable acquired by the Debtor since the filing of
the petition, with such lien and replacement lien to continue until
further Order of the Court or confirmation of a Plan of
Reorganization.

The Debtor was directed to make periodic monthly payments of $5,767
each month to Falcon Bank from the Budgeted Amount, beginning on
January 20, 2017, which will be applied to the interest accrual on
the Debtor's two Falcon Bank notes which are secured by the
Debtor's properties at 2503 E. Saunders, Laredo, TX and 9017 San
Dario, Laredo, TX.

The Debtor will also pay to Falcon Bank the amount of $5,000, which
amount will be held in escrow by the Bank and used to pay the 2017
ad valorem taxes on the Debtor's two properties.

In addition, the Debtor was also directed to make monthly deposit
into its Wells Fargo DIP account the amount of $9,044 to hold in
escrow for the payment of occupancy taxes to the City, County, and
State, and monthly file complete copies of the monthly statements
for its DIP Accounts, to include copies of all payment and deposit
items.

The Debtor is also directed to provide to Falcon Bank proof of
insurance against loss or damage on all of the Debtor's real
properties with the Bank named as a loss payee on the insurance.

ROBERT JOHNSON: Kheshvadjian Buying 2011 Ford Flex for $9.4K
------------------------------------------------------------
Jeffrey I. Golden, Trustee for Robert Vilas Johnson and Linda
Joyce, asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of
California to authorize the sale of Debtors' 2011 Ford Flex,
Vehicle Identification Number 2FMHK6DT6DDD26645, License Plate
Number 6RCW489, to Levon Kheshvadjian, doing business as Matrix
Towing, for $9,400, subject to overbid.

A hearing on the Motion is set for Feb. 7, 2017 at 10:00 a.m.

On the Petition Date, the Debtors filed their bankruptcy schedules,
including Schedules B and C.  The Debtors listed a 2006 Mercededs
E55 and the Property in Schedule B, and exempted $1,165 as to the
Mercedes in Schedule C.  As the vehicles were unencumbered, and the
property of the estate had been used to create the equity that
existed in the vehicles, on June 21, 2016, the Trustee filed the
Turnover Motion, for among other things, turnover of the vehicles
to enable the Trustee to liquidate the vehicles for the benefit of
the estate and its creditors.

On Sept. 2, 2016, the Court entered an order granting the Turnover
Motion, which among other things required to turnover the Property
to the Trustee on Aug. 29, 2016 and execute and surrender all
documentation(s), slip(s), and/or certificate(s), and a transfer of
title from the Debtors (or either of them) necessary to effectuate
the Turnover.

On Sept. 27, 2016, the Debtors turned over the Property to the
Trustee and executed the Transfer Documents.  The Property is
unencumbered and has approximately 125,435 miles on it.

After marketing the Property for nearly 2 months, on Oct. 15, 2016,
the Trustee received an offer from the Buyer to acquire the
Property for the sum of $9,400.  The Buyer has agreed to purchase
the Property on an "as is, where is" basis.  To this end, on Dec.
29, 2016, the Buyer delivered a cashier's check in the amount of
$9,400.  The sale is conditioned upon the sale of the Property free
and clear of liens, claims, interests and encumbrances and entry of
a finding that the Buyer constitutes a good faith purchaser, and
closing within 15 days of the date the order approving the sale
becomes a final order.  The Sale is subject to Court approval and
potential overbid.

The material terms of the sale are:

          a. Buyer: Levon Kheshvadjian

          b. Purchase Price: $9,400

          c. Earnest Money Deposit: $5,700

          d. Condition of the Property: The Property will be sold
in an "as is, where is" basis condition without any representations
or warranties, free and clear of any and all liens and
encumbrances.

          e. Closing Date: Within 15 days after the Sale Order
becomes the Final Order.

          f. Closing Cost: The Buyer will bear any cost(s) related
to the transfer of the Property, including but not limited to any
transfer taxes which may be applicable.

The Trustee believes that the sale is in the best interest of the
Estate and its creditors, as the sale reflects the highest and best
offer received for the Property to date. Accordingly, the Trustee
asks that the Court approve the Sale to the Buyer on the terms set
forth.  In the event that the Trustee receives any additional
offers to purchase the Property prior to or at the hearing on the
Motion, which he deems, in his sole and absolute discretion, to be
better than the Offer, the Trustee will conduct an auction at the
hearing to approve the Motion.

Although the Closing Date is currently scheduled to be within 15
days after the Sale Order becomes the Final Order, the waiver of
the stay imposed by Rule 6004(h) is appropriate in order to enable
a more expeditious closing. The waiver will not result in any
prejudice.  The Trustee does not expect to receive any substantive
opposition to the Motion.  Accordingly, the Trustee requests that
the Court waive the stay imposed by Rule 6004(h).

S. J. MEDICAL: Santos Trust Buying San Jacinto Property for $5.4M
-----------------------------------------------------------------
S. J. Medical, LLC, asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Central
District of California to authorize the sale of an improved
commercial real property commonly known as 1695 San Jacinto Ave.,
San Jacinto, California and personal property consisting of office
furniture, to Alfred and Barbara Santos Trust for $5,400,000,
subject to higher and better bids.

A hearing on the Motion is set for Feb. 14, 2017 at 1:30 p.m.

The Reorganized Debtor owns the improved commercial real estate in
San Jacinto, California, which consists of approximately .60 acres.
The Reorganized Debtor purchased the Property as vacant land and
developed an approximately 28,124 square foot 2-story medical
office building on the site with l8 medical office suites for
lease.  The current occupancy rate for the Property is
approximately 92%.

PFF Bank & Trust provided the financing for development of the
Property.  During the financial crisis of 2008 to 2009, the Federal
Deposit Insurance Corporation was appointed as the receiver for PFF
Bank & Trust.  As of approximately April 2009, U.S. Bank National
Association was the successor in interest to the FDIC as receiver
for PFF Bank & Trust.

The construction loan for development of the Property matured in
2012.  The Reorganized Debtor negotiated with U.S. Bank as well as
other lenders to obtain permanent financing to pay off the
construction loan.  All efforts to obtain financing were
unsuccessful primarily because of the credit history of Robert E.
Osborne, Sr., a member of the  reorganized Debtor.  The Reorganized
Debtor filed a voluntary Chapter 11 petition on Sept. 16, 2013,to
stop the foreclosure sale scheduled by U.S. Bank. On Nov. 20, 2014,
the Reorganized Debtor filed the Debtor's Chapter 11 Liquidation
Plan Dated Nov. 20, 2014.  

The Plan provides for the sale of the Property and the distribution
of the sale proceeds to pay all "Allowed Claims" as defined by the
Plan.  On March 20, 2015, the Order Confirming the Plan was entered
by the Court.  The Reorganized Debtor proposes to sell the Properly
to implement the terms of the Plan.  The Reorganized Debtor
marketed the Property for sale during the Chapter 11 case and after
the Order confirming the Plan was entered on March 20,2015.

On Nov. 28, 2016, the Reorganized Debtor received the Standard
Offer.  Agreement and Escrow Instructions For Purchase of Real
Property from the Buyer, dated Feb. 12, 1979 to purchase the
Property for $5,400,000.  Thereafter, the Reorganized Debtor and
the Buyer engaged in negotiations regarding the terms and
conditions for the proposed sale, including the bidding procedures,
overbid protection and breakup fee for the sale.  On Dec. 14, 2016,
the Reorganized Debtor and the Buyer executed the Standard Offer,
Agreement and Escrow Instructions For Purchase of Real Property,
including the Addendum thereto.  The Reorganized Debtor determined
it was in the best interests of all creditors and the estate to
enter into the Agreement for the sale of the Property free and
clear of liens, claims and interests.  

The material terms of the Agreement are:

          a. Property: The sale of the Property represents a sale
of substantially all the assets of the estate as contemplated by
the Plan.  The sale includes the personal property of the estate
located at Suite G of the Property.

          b. Leases: The sale of the Property includes the
assignment of each lease of one or more suites of the Property.

          c. No Contingencies: Subject only to obtaining Bankruptcy
Court approval of the sale, the Buyer acknowledges that there are
no contingencies to the closing of the sale of the Property under
the Agreement.

          d. No Broker Commissions: The Debtor is not represented
by a real estate broker.  The Seller will pay directly to its real
estate broker any commission for the sale and purchase of the
Property.  No real estate broker's commission will be paid through
the escrow established for the sale of the Property.

          e. Purchase Price: The purchase price of $5,400,000 is to
be paid by the Buyer to Reorganized Debtor as follows:

                    i. Good Faith Deposit: The Buyer provided
Reorganized Debtor with a good faith deposit in the amount of
$100,000.  The Good Faith Deposit was deposited in the client trust
account of counsel for the Reorganized Debtor until the sale of the
Property is approved by the Bankruptcy Court.

                    ii. Cash at Closing:  The Buyer will pay
Reorganized Debtor $5,300,00 at the Closing.

          f. Free and Clear of Liens: The sale will be free and
clear of all liens, claims and encumbrances, as defined by the
Agreement.

          g. "As Is" Sale: The sale of the Property is "as, is"
without any warranties, expressed or implied, being given by the
Reorganized Debtor.

          h. Bankruptcy Court Approval: The sale is subject to
entry of an order by the U.S. Bankruptcy Court authorizing the
Reorganized Debtor to sell the Property.

          i. Overbidding/Auction: The sale is subject to higher and
better bids submitted at the auction to be held concurrently with
the hearing to approve the proposed sale of the Property.

          j. Bidding Procedures: The Agreement provides for
specified bidding procedures and bid protection provisions.

sale within 15 days after entry of the order authorizing the Debtor
to sell the Property, or such earlier date as agreed by the parties
in writing, subject to any applicable stay.  The time for closing
the sale may also be extended by written agreement signed by all
parties.

The Reorganized Debtor asks authority to assign the Assumed Leases
to the Buyer.  The Court entered the Order Establishing Bidding
Procedures For Sale Of Real And Personal Property Of The

If Reorganized Debtor consummates a sale of the Property to a
person or entity other than the Buyer, Reorganized Debtor will pay
the Buyer at the closing of the transaction a break-up fee of
$20,000 to cover its due diligence expenses including legal fees,
appraisal fees, inspection fees, interest on its Good Faith Deposit
and related costs incurred by the Buyer.

First American Title Co. prepared a Preliminary Report dated Dec.
9, 2016 in advance of issuing a title policy for the sale of the
Property.

The Preliminary Report lists two recorded liens of monetary
obligations related to the Property:

          a. General and special taxes for the fiscal year
2016-2017 (real property taxes).  The first installment of $31,646
was paid and the second installment of $31,646, which is not yet
due, will be prorated between the Reorganized Debtor and the Buyer
at the closing of the sale of the Property.

          b. Deed of Trust to secure an original indebtedness of
$4,410,000 to PFF Bank & Trust recorded June 7, 2016 as Instrument
No. 06-411378 of Official Records that was assigned to U.S. Bank
N.A. by assignment recorded Feb. 3, 2010 as Instrument No. 10-51537
of Official Records, as modified by document recorded April 19,
2012 as Instrument No. 12-177459 of Official Records.  The
Reorganized Debtor requests authority to disburse funds from the
sale proceeds to pay this secured claim in full.

The Plan provides that the proceeds of the sale of the Property
will be sufficient to pay in full the Allowed Claims of these
non-insider classes of creditors:

          a. Administrative Claims: The only administrative claim
of the Reorganized Debtor held by former general insolvency
counsel, Goe & Forsythe, LLP.  The balance of the Goe & Forsythe
administrative claim as of Jan. 1, 2017, is approximately $59,012
and will be paid in full.

          b. Class 3 U.S. Bank Secured Claim: The secured claim of
U.S. Bank in the estimated amount of $4,834,993 as of Dec. 30,
2016, will be paid in full from the proceeds of the sale of the
Property.

          c.  Class 4 General Unsecured Claims (Non-insider): The
allowed general unsecured claim of Alfred Santos for $400,000 will
be paid in full from the proceeds of the sale of the Property.
There are no other allowed general unsecured claims in the case.

          d. Class 7 Tenant Security Deposit: The tenant deposits
of approximately $55,893 as of Jan. 1, 2017, will be given to Buyer
as a credit to the cash required of Buyer at the closing of the
sale of the Property.

The Reorganized Debtor asks that the Court authorize the sale of
the Property and the payment of the claims described through escrow
from the sale proceeds.

The Reorganized Debtor will pay these expenses of post-confirmation
administration before entry of a final decree in the case:

          a.  Quarterly Fees: The quarterly fees of the Reorganized
Debtor for the first quarter of 2017 will be $13,000.  The estimate
is based on the distribution of $5,400,000 in sale proceeds during
the first quarter.  The quarterly fee schedule published by the
U.S. Department of Justice provides for a fee of $13,000 for total
quarterly disbursements by debtors in chapter 11 cases of between
$5,000,000 and 515,000,000.  The quarterly fees owed to the United
States Trustee will be paid prior to the entry of a final decree in
the case.

          b.  Post-confirmation professional fees and costs: The
Reorganized Debtor will pay expenses in the ordinary course of
business during the first quarter, including professional fees and
costs incurred to obtain approval of the proposed sale of the
Property, entry of related orders, and requesting entry of a final
decree.

The Reorganized Debtor anticipates that the proceeds of the sale of
the Property will not be sufficient to pay these classes of
creditors and interest holders:

          a. Class 5 Insider Unsecured Claims: There will be no
payments to the holders of the Class 5 claims of members for loans
made to the Reorganized Debtor.

          b. Class 6 Interests of Debtor: There will be no payments
to the holders of Class 6 Interests, however, the Plan provides for
the members of the Debtor to retain their interests in the Debtor
subject to claims each member may have against the other.

The Reorganized Debtor is a California Limited Liability Company.
All capital gains, losses and other tax consequences from the sale
of the Property will be reported in the individual income tax
returns of the members of the corporate entity.  All tax
consequences of the sale of the Property, if any, other than the
proration of real property taxes in the escrow at the closing of
the sale, will be paid by the individual members who hold interests
in the Reorganized Debtor.

The Plan provides that April 1, 2017 is the deadline for closing
the sale.  If the Property is not sold by that deadline, the
secured creditor, U.S. Bank, is authorized to proceed to foreclose
its first priority security interest in the Property.  The sale of
the Property to the Buyer as proposed implements the terms of the
Plan and prevents the liquidation of the Property solely for the
benefit of the secured creditor. For these reasons, the Debtor
asserts that the sale of the Property to the Buyer is supported by
sound business judgment.  Accordingly, the Reorganized Debtor asks
the Court to approve the sale of the Property to the Buyer free and
clear of any interest which sale proceeds are sufficient to pay the
costs required to close the sale and all non-insider Allowed
Claims.  To implement the terms of the Plan, the Reorganized Debtor
asks authority to disburse the sale proceeds through escrow to pay
in full the costs, expenses, and Allowed Claim described.

The Reorganized Debtor must close the sale expeditiously to meet
the April 1, 2017 deadline set by the Forbearance Agreement and the
Plan.  Waiver of the 14-day stay under Rule 6004(h), allows the
Reorganized Debtor to close the sale, implement the Plan, and
proceed to request entry of a Final Decree.  The Reorganized Debtor
asks that the Court exercise its discretion and order that the sale
of the Property and the assignment of the Assumed Leases may be
effectuated immediately upon entry of the Sale Order.

SAEXPLORATION HOLDINGS: Appoints Independent Director to Board
--------------------------------------------------------------
SAExploration Holdings, Inc., announced that Michael J. Faust has
been appointed to serve on its board of directors.  SAE further
announced, that as a result of the election of Mr. Faust, his
appointment to serve on the Company's audit committee, and the
board of directors' determination that he is an independent
director, it has received formal notification from the Listing
Qualifications Department of The Nasdaq Stock Market that the
company has regained full compliance with the audit committee
requirement for continued listing on Nasdaq.

Michael Faust has 34 years of industry, financial and leadership
experience within the oil and gas sector, including diverse
geological, geophysical and technical reservoir experience spanning
many different basins and formations throughout the world.  Prior
to joining SAE's board, Mr. Faust was the vice president of
Exploration and Land at ConocoPhillips Alaska, Inc., where he
oversaw and managed the Company's exploration organization and
strategy in Alaska.  After joining Arco Alaska, Inc. in 1997, Mr.
Faust held multiple senior positions up to and following Phillips
Petroleum Co.'s acquisition of Arco Alaska, Inc. in 2000 and the
subsequent merger between Phillips and Conoco Inc., which created
ConocoPhillips Alaska, Inc. in 2002.  These positions of increasing
responsibility included chief geophysicist, development geoscience
manager, technology and operations manager, and offshore
exploration manager, among others.  In 2008, Mr. Faust was
appointed vice president of Exploration and Land at ConocoPhillips
Canada Ltd.  Prior to Arco Alaska, Inc., Mr. Faust also held
various positions with Exxon Exploration Company and Esso Norge
A.S. after beginning his career with Exxon Co. USA in 1983.  Mr.
Faust earned his Master of Arts degree in Geophysics from the
University of Texas at Austin in 1984, after receiving his Bachelor
of Science degree in Geology from the University of Washington in
1981.  Mr. Faust is a Certified Petroleum Geologist and a member of
the American Association of Petroleum Geologists, the Society of
Exploration Geophysicists, and served as the President of the
Geophysical Society of Alaska from 2001 to 2002.

On Aug. 3, 2016, Nasdaq staff notified the Company that its common
stock had failed to meet the audit committee requirements under
Listing Rule 5605(c)(2).  At the time, SAE had only two directors
that satisfied the independence requirement of that rule.  However,
following the appointment of Mr. Faust to the Company's board of
directors, his appointment to serve on the Company's audit
committee, and determination that he was an independent director,
SAE now has three independent directors that serve on its audit
committee.  SAE has submitted to Nasdaq documentation, including
biographies and other information, evidencing compliance with the
rule.  As a result, Nasdaq staff has determined that the company
now meets the audit committee composition and independence
requirements.  Accordingly, the Company has regained compliance
with Listing Rule 5605(c)(2) and this matter is now closed. SAE is
no longer deficient on any of the requirements under its listing
standard with Nasdaq.

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

      http://bankrupt.com/misc/Secured_Assets_243_Sales.pdf

BDH has a first priority security interest in all three units.   By
virtue of a recorded Judgment by Confession, Woodburn & Wedge has a
second priority security interest in all three units based on past
due attorneys' fees.

Any person may qualify as a "Qualified Bidder."  To do so, an
interested bidder must deliver to Ms. Jensen a loan commitment
letter in form, on terms, and from a lender satisfactory to the
Debtor sufficient to pay the balance of purchase price for property
or produce a certification from a bank or similar financial
institution of available funds to close in form satisfactory to the
Debtor sufficient to close the sale.

A hearing will be conducted on Feb. 14, 2017 at 2:00 p.m.  A party
must be a Qualified Bidder to bid at the Sale Hearing.

The Proposed Buyer's offering price for each unit will be the
opening bid on that unit.  Any sale is to be approved for an amount
not less than the offer on the particular unit.

The initial overbid increment will be at least $2,000, resulting
in a minimum sale price of $2,000 over the contract price or
comparable offer.  Subsequent bids will be accepted in increments
of $1,000.  The final purchase price will be the highest qualified
bid offered over the Opening Bid Price and accepted at hearing.

The Closing will take place as soon as possible after the Court's
order is entered approving the Sale Motion, including paying the
balance of the purchase price and executing all necessary
documents, but in any event, no more than 7 days after the Order is
entered.  Failure to close timely will constitute a material breach
of the Purchase Agreement, shall void any rights the Proposed Buyer
or a successful Bidder may have had against the bankruptcy estate
or any of its assets, including against the Property, and will
permit the Debtor to re-market the Property and sell it to a third
party.

The the Debtor respectfully submits that it has adequately
articulated a business justification and that the sale is in the
best interests of the estate and its creditors.

Accordingly, the Debtor asks that the Court approve the sales free
and clear of all liens, claims and encumbrances, with liens to
attach to the proceeds of sale in order of priority, which proceeds
will be set aside in the Debtor's counsel's client trust account
until further order of the Court.  The Debtor also asks the Court
to authorize that Dickson Realty, Inc. may be paid a commission of
3% of the gross sales price directly from escrow without the
necessity of filing a separate fee application and that other
customary and ordinary costs of sale of the unit may be paid upon
successful closing.

The Debtor asks the Court to order that the proposed sale is not
stayed pursuant to Fed. R. Bankr. Pro. 6004(h).  Although the
Proposed Buyer consented to a hearing on regular time, its
preference was to close immediately.

SILVER CREEK: Can Use DeSoto Cash Collateral on Interim Basis
-------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Harlin DeWayne Hale of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Northern District of Texas authorized Silver Creek Investments,
LLC, to use cash collateral on an interim basis.

Judge Hale acknowledged the necessity of the Debtor's immediate
need to use Cash collateral in order to continue its ordinary
course of business operations and to maintain the value of its
bankruptcy estate, to avoid immediate and irreparable harm to the
Debtor's bankruptcy estate.

The Debtor is authorized to collect Cash Collateral in the form of
rent from tenants at the Property for the month of January 2017.
The Debtor's use of cash collateral will be limited to payment of
certain expenses of operating its business, including payroll and
related taxes, and the monthly secured obligation to Bank of DeSoto
pursuant to its security documents.  Particularly, the Debtor was
allowed following operating expense payment:

charges to the U.S. Trustee that are required under Chapter 123 of
title 28.

The Debtor is directed to provide written documentation for each
operating expense paid with the Cash Collateral, and to deposit in
the Debtor's Debtor-in-Possession account any Cash Collateral
collected in excess of the amount required to pay operating
expenses until further order of the Court.

The Debtor is also directed to make adequate protection payments in
the amount of $20,250 each month to Bank of DeSoto, beginning
January 1, 2017 and will continue until further order of the Court.


The Debtor is further directed to provide Bank of DeSoto, with an
updated rent roll that will show the name, address with suite
number and amount of rent to be paid each month, no later than
January 6, 2017, as well as an accounting of all income generated
from the Event Center located at the Property for the period of
January 2016 through December 2016.

SOLERA HOLDINGS: S&P Lowers CCR to 'B-' on High Leverage
--------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said it lowered its corporate credit rating on
Westlake, Texas-based Solera Holdings Inc. to 'B-' from 'B'.  The
outlook is stable.

S&P also lowered its issue-level ratings on the company's secured
credit facilities to 'B' from 'B+'.  The recovery rating remains
'2', indicating S&P's expectation for substantial (70% to 90%;
lower half of the range) recovery in the event of a payment
default.  Additionally, S&P lowered its issue-level rating on the
company's unsecured notes to 'CCC+' from 'B-'.  The recovery rating
remains '5', indicating S&P's expectation for modest (10% to 30%;
lower half of the range) recovery in the event of a payment
default.

"Our downgrade of Solera to 'B-' from 'B' reflects the company's
leverage remaining elevated at around 10x (including $1.1 billion
of preferred equity and $223 million of stockholder appraisal
rights as debt), pro forma for the acquisition of Autodata, and it
successfully achieving previously identified cost savings," said
S&P Global Ratings credit analyst Andrew Yee.

The proposed acquisition will be Solera's second debt-financed
acquisition since it was acquired by a consortium led by Vista
Equity Partners in March 2016.  While S&P expects the company to
achieve organic growth in the low- to mid-single-digit percentage
area over the next 12 months, S&P believes pro forma leverage will
decline to the mid-9x area and FOCF-to-debt ratio will be low at
around 2.5%.

The rating on Solera reflects its leading market position as a
provider of risk and asset management software and services to the
automotive and property markets, including the global property and
casualty insurance industry, its recurring and predictable revenue
base, and its proprietary auto-market analytical data.  The company
is geographically diversified and derives about 57% of its revenue
from the Americas and the remaining 43% from Europe, the Middle
East, and Africa as of June 30, 2016.  The company also benefits
from fairly diverse customer segments, led by insurance providers
and trailed by collision, recyclers, and service, maintenance and
repair (SMR) facilities.  The company's niche product focus within
the automotive property and casualty industry, acquisitive growth
strategy, and high tolerance for debt leverage offset these
strengths.

The stable outlook reflects S&P's expectation of low- to
mid-single-digit percentage organic revenue growth over the next 12
months and the company successfully achieving the previously
identified cost savings.  However, S&P expects pro forma leverage
to remain high and FOCF to debt ratio of about 2.5%.

As announced on Jan. 28, 2016, Spanish Broadcasting received a
written notice from The Nasdaq Stock Market, advising the Company
that the market value of its Class A common stock for the previous
30 consecutive business days had been below the minimum $15,000,000
required for continued listing on the NASDAQ Global Market pursuant
to NASDAQ Listing Rule 5450(b)(3)(C).

The Notice also stated that pursuant to NASDAQ Listing Rule
5810(c)(3)(D), the Company would be provided an initial grace
period of 180 calendar days, or until July 26, 2016, to regain
compliance with the Rule.  The Company did not regain compliance
with the Rule by July 26, 2016.  Accordingly, on July 27, 2016, the
Company received written notification from NASDAQ that unless the
Company requested a hearing before the NASDAQ Hearings Panel the
Company's common stock would be delisted.  

The Company requested a hearing before the NASDAQ Hearings Panel to
appeal the Staff Determination, which occurred on Sept. 8, 2016.
On Sept. 17, 2016, the Company received written notification from
NASDAQ, dated Sept. 12, 2016, granting the Company's request to
continue the listing of its shares on the NASDAQ Global Market
until Jan. 23, 2017.  NASDAQ required that, during this exception
period, the Company provide prompt notification of any significant
events that occurred during this time which called into question
the Company's ability to demonstrate compliance with the Rule.  

In January 2017, the Company determined that it was not likely to
regain compliance with the Rule by Jan. 23, 2017, and notified
NASDAQ of its determination on Jan. 13, 2017.

SPECTRASCIENCE INC: Withdraws Tender Offer for Warrants
-------------------------------------------------------
Lowell W. Giffhorn, CFO of SpectraScience, Inc., informed the
Securities and Exchange Commission that the Company has decided not
to proceed with the tender offer filed with the Securities and
Exchange Commission on Form TO on Aug. 19, 2016.

The Tender Offer Statement on Schedule TO relates to the Company's
offer to exchange certain of its outstanding warrants for (i) the
issuance of restricted shares of its common stock, $0.01 par value
per share in exchange for the cancellation of the Eligible Warrants
at various conversion rates based on the existing exercise price of
the Eligible Warrant per the Offer to Exchange and the Election
Form, which together, as each may be amended and supplemented from
time to time, constitute the Offer.  A copy of the Schedule TO is
available at https://is.gd/msiMqO

Early this month, SpectraScience filed with the SEC a copy of an
Information Statement, which is being furnished to the Company's
stockholders of record in connection with the authorization of the
corporate action by the Company's Board of Directors on January 10,
2017, and the approval of such corporate action by the written
consent, taken as of January 10, 2017, of those stockholders of
record of the Company entitled to vote the majority of the
aggregate shares of the Company's common stock, par value $0.01 per
share totaling 876,171,222 voting shares, and the holders of Series
AA Super Voting Stock outstanding on such date totaling
3,000,000,000 voting shares.

Stockholders holding in the aggregate 3,000,000,000 shares of
Common Stock and Series AA Super Voting Stock (77% of the voting
stock outstanding as of January 10, 2017) approved the corporate
action.  Accordingly, the Information Statement is furnished solely
for the purpose of informing the stockholders of record of the
Company, in the manner required under the Securities Exchange Act
of 1934, as amended, of this corporate action before it takes
effect.

The Board and Consenting Shareholders have approved an Amendment to
the Company's Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation to
increase the number of authorized shares of Capital Stock of the
Company to 2,000,000,000.

                      About SpectraScience

SpectraScience, Inc., develops and manufactures innovative Laser
Induced Fluorescence spectrophotometry systems capable of
determining whether tissue is normal, pre-cancerous or cancerous
without removing tissue from the body. The WavSTAT Optical Biopsy
System is SpectraScience's first product to incorporate its
proprietary fluorescence technology for clinical use. The WavSTAT
System carries the CE mark designation which allows for the sale
and marketing in the European Union for the diagnosis of cancer.  

                          *     *     *

The Company had $1,693,744 in total assets against $10,982,753 in
total current liabilities at Sept. 30, 2016.  Total mezzanine
equity is $30,850 and accumulated deficit is $52,420,568 at Sept.
30, 2016.

Historically, the Company's sources of cash have come from the
issuance and sale of equity securities and debentures. The
Company's historical cash outflows have been primarily used for
operating activities including research, development,
administrative and sales activities.  Fluctuations in the
Company's
working capital due to timing differences of its cash receipts and
cash disbursements also impact its cash flow. The Company expects
to incur significant additional operating losses through at least
the end of 2016, as it completes proof-of-concept trials, conducts
outcome-based clinical studies and increases sales and marketing
efforts to commercialize the WavSTAT4 System in Europe.  If the
Company does not receive sufficient funding, there is substantial
doubt that the Company will be able to continue as a going
concern.
The Company may incur unknown expenses or may not be able to meet
its revenue forecast, and one or more of these circumstances would
require the Company to seek additional capital.  The Company may
not be able to obtain equity capital or debt funding on terms that
are acceptable.  Even if the Company receives additional funding,
such proceeds may not be sufficient to allow the Company to
sustain
operations until it becomes profitable and begins to generate
positive cash flows from operations.

As of September 30, 2016, the Company had a working capital
deficit
of $10,503,770 and cash of $1,927, compared to a working capital
deficit of $8,324,600 and cash of $127,493 as of December 31,
2015.
In December 2011, the Company entered into an Engagement Agreement
with Laidlaw & Company (UK) Ltd., which Engagement Agreement was
amended in July 2012. Under the Engagement Agreement, Laidlaw
agreed to assist the Company in raising up to $20.0 million in
capital over a two-year period from the date of the Engagement
Agreement. Subsequent to March 31, 2013, the Company has engaged
other agents to assist the Company with raising capital and has
commenced raising capital on its own. During the nine months ended
September 30, 2016, the Company raised $1,185,000, net of
transaction costs of $34,000, under these agreements.  However, if
the Company does not receive additional funds in a timely manner,
the Company could be in jeopardy as a going concern. The Company
may not be able to find alternative capital or raise capital or
debt on terms that are acceptable.  Management believes that if
the
events defined in the Engagement Agreements occur as expected, or
if the Company is otherwise able to raise a similar level of
funds,
such proceeds will be sufficient to allow the Company to sustain
operations until it attains profitability and positive cash flows
from operations.  However, the Company may incur unknown expenses
or may not be able to meet its revenue expectations requiring it
to
seek additional capital.  In such event, the Company may not be
able to find capital or raise capital or debt on terms that are
acceptable.

The holders of Convertible Debentures control the conversion of
the
Convertible Debentures and certain of the Convertible Debentures
were not converted at their maturity constituting a potential
default on the matured, but unconverted, Convertible Debentures.
In the event of such default, principal, accrued interest and
other
related costs are immediately due and payable in cash. As of
September 30, 2016, Convertible Debentures with a face value of
$5,473,032 held by 75 individual investors are in default.  None
of
these investors have served notice of default on the Convertible
Debentures held by them.


SPENCER TRANSPORTATION: CCG Inc Wants to Stop Cash Use
------------------------------------------------------
Secured Lender Commercial Credit Group Inc. asks the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Alabama, to prohibit
Spencer Transportation, LLC from using cash collateral.

CCG Inc. requests the Court to prohibit the Debtor from using cash
collateral to the extent necessary to adequately protect its
interest in the cash collateral, and require the Debtor to provide
CCG Inc. replacement liens and monthly status of cash collateral
use and generation.

CCG Inc. relates that the Debtor executed in its favor four
Negotiable Promissory Notes and Security Agreements with various
monthly payment requirements, and the Notes are in default.

CCG Inc. asserts a valid, perfected, first priority purchase money
security interest in several specific personal property of the
Debtor.  Pursuant to the security agreements, the Debtor granted to
CCG Inc. a blanket security interest in any and all accounts,
accounts receivable, equipment, fixtures, general intangibles,
inventory, securities, deposit accounts, investment property and
all other property in which the Debtor now or hereafter has any
right or interest, including rental proceeds, insurance proceeds,
accounts and chattel paper arising out of or related to the sale,
use, rental or other disposition thereof.

CCG Inc. contends that the Debtor has not requested nor received
permission to use its cash collateral and no budget for operating
the Debtor's business has been provided.

STRINGER FARMS: Can Continue Using Cash Collateral Until Feb. 10
----------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Texas
authorized Stringer Farms, Inc. and Charles Blake Stringer to use
cash collateral on an interim basis, through Feb. 10, 2017.

The Court authorized the Debtors to use cash collateral to pay the
costs of operation of its businesses, only in accordance with the
First Interim Budget and the Second Interim Budget.

The Second Interim Budget contemplates a four week operating
expenses from January 20, 2017 through February 10, 2017 in the
aggregate sum of $443,135.  The Second Interim Budget includes
budgeted expenditures of $130,266 for the week ending February 10,
2017, of which amount, $125,266 is proposed to be paid by the
Debtor to two prepetition creditors on account of amounts owed for
prepetition work in harvesting the Debtors' corn crop.  

Wells Fargo asserted that it possesses perfected security interests
in and liens on various personal property of the Debtors, including
but not limited to accounts, inventory, equipment, farm products,
including crops, livestock, poultry and all supplies used in the
Debtors' farming operations, to secure payment of the Debtors'
prepetition indebtedness.  As of the Petition Date, the Debtor was
indebted to Wells Fargo, pursuant to, among other:  

      (a) First Promissory Note, in the original principal amount
of $2 million;

      (b) Second Promissory Note, in the original principal amount
of $2.2 million;

      (c) Third Promissory Note, in the original principal amount
of $5 million;

      (d) certain WellsOne Commercial Card Agreement; and

      (e) certain Commercial Guaranty.

Wells Fargo is granted a replacement security interest in, and
lien, upon the right, title and interest in the following property
of the Debtors:

      (a) The prepetition Collateral of Wells Fargo;

      (b) Any property acquired by the Debtors after the Petition
Date, which is of the same nature, kind and character as Wells
Fargo's prepetition collateral.  Such replacement liens will have
the same priority, validity, force and effect as the liens that
they replace.

      (c) A first lien and security interest, subject only to any
ad valorem taxes, in and to the Second Replacement Lien Real
Estate.

Accordingly, the Debtor Stringer will execute a Deed of Trust and
Security Agreement to document the lien on such real estate, which
lien will be release on the earlier of: (1) Wells Fargo being paid
back its secured claim in full, or (2) the Debtors obtain DIP
Financing that is sufficient to re-pay Wells Fargo for diminution
of the value of Wells Fargo's collateral resulting from the
Debtor's use of cash collateral.  In addition, the Debtor Stringer
will also sign a homestead affidavit regarding his homestead.

The Debtors were directed to provide Wells Fargo: (a) report which
reflects actual income and expenditures during the prior week
compared to the income and expenditures projected in the Cash
Budget, and (b) screenshots reflecting balances in the
debtor-in-possession bank accounts.

As additional adequate protection to Wells Fargo, the Debtor agreed
to endeavor to use their best efforts to obtain DIP Financing from
a DIP Lender on or before February 10, 2017, and to present a
motion to the Court to incur such financing.  The Debtors further
agreed to include in any DIP Financing Motion an agreement to pay
Wells Fargo back at least the amount of cash collateral consumed by
the Debtors.

The Debtors are also directed to maintain insurance on Wells
Fargo's prepetition and postpetition collateral.

Wells Fargo is also granted an administrative priority claim up to
the amount of the diminution and to the extent that the Replacement
liens and other adequate protection already provided by the Order
prove insufficient to secure any diminution in value of Wells
Fargo's interest in the Collateral.

A final hearing to consider the Debtors' authority to use cash
collateral will be held on February 7, 2017 at 9:30 a.m.

TRANSGENOMIC INC: Dismisses Ernst & Young as Accountants
--------------------------------------------------------
The Audit Committee of the Board of Directors of Transgenomic,
Inc., approved the dismissal of Ernst & Young LLP as the Company's
independent registered public accounting firm and accordingly the
Company notified Ernst & Young of that action effective as of
Jan. 12, 2017.

According to the Company, the dismissal of Ernst & Young as its
independent registered public accounting firm did not result from
any dissatisfaction with the quality of professional services
rendered by the firm.

The audit reports of Ernst & Young on the Company's consolidated
financial statements as of and for the two most recent fiscal years
did not contain an adverse opinion or a disclaimer of opinion, and
were not qualified or modified as to uncertainty, audit scope or
accounting principles.

During the Company's two most recent fiscal years, and any
subsequent interim period prior to termination of the
client-auditor relationship with Ernst & Young on Jan. 12, 2017,
there were no "disagreements" (as that term is described in Item
304(a)(1)(iv) of Regulation S-K and the related instructions)
between the Company and Ernst & Young on any matters of accounting
principles or practices, financial statement disclosure, or
auditing scope or procedure which, if not resolved to the
satisfaction of Ernst & Young, would have caused Ernst & Young to
make reference to the subject matter of such disagreements in their
reports on the Company's consolidated financial statements with
respect to those periods, the Company noted.

During the Company's two most recent fiscal years, and any
subsequent interim period prior to termination of the
client-auditor relationship with Ernst & Young on Jan. 12, 2017,
there were no "reportable events" as that term is described in Item
304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation S-K and the related instructions, except
for the material weaknesses in the Company's internal control over
financial reporting disclosed in its Form 10-K for the fiscal year
ended Dec. 31, 2014 (filed April 15, 2015), related to the design
of controls over proper timing and recognition of revenue and over
the elements used in the Company's analysis and evaluation of the
allowance for doubtful accounts to ensure that the allowance for
doubtful accounts was reasonably stated.  The ineffectiveness of
these controls did not result in an adjustment to the financial
statements or a restatement of prior year financial statements.  In
response to the material weaknesses, the Company's management
developed remediation plans to address the control deficiencies
identified in 2014.  These remediation actions were implemented
during 2015 and included enhancements that included (i) with
respect to revenue recognition, (a) a reconciliation of proof of
delivery (fax confirmation) for invoiced and unbilled reports and
(b) a review of error processing queues, among other steps, and
(ii) with respect to allowances for doubtful accounts, (a) a review
of the payor and client accounts receivable aging (b) review of
write offs, (c) a review of current and historical payment trends
and (d) a review of actual cash collections and a hindsight
analysis, among other steps.  The Company's management determined
that these remediation actions were effectively designed and
demonstrated effective operation for a sufficient period of time to
enable the Company's management to conclude that the 2014 material
weaknesses were remediated as of Dec. 31, 2015.

While the Company has not engaged a new independent registered
public accounting firm as of Jan. 19, 2017, it has begun a search
process to indentify Ernst & Young's successors.  The Company will
disclose its engagement of a new independent registered public
accounting firm once the process has been completed and as required
by the SEC's rules and regulations.

TRANSUNION LLC: Moody's Upgrades Corp. Family Rating to Ba3
-----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service upgraded Trans Union, LLC's Corporate
Family Rating (CFR) and senior secured credit facility ratings to
Ba3, from B1, and affirmed its SGL-1 speculative grade liquidity
rating. The ratings outlook is positive. Moody's also assigned a
Ba3 rating to Trans Union's proposed approximately $2 billion of
Term Loan B and expects to withdraw the rating for its existing
Term Loan B at the close of the proposed amendment to the credit
agreement and extension of maturity for Term Loan B. Trans Union
LLC is an indirect subsidiary of TransUnion.

RATINGS RATIONALE

The upgrade of the Corporate Family Rating (CFR) reflects
TransUnion's greater financial flexibility resulting from strong
earnings growth, its increasingly diversified revenues and Moody's
expectation that the company will pursue balanced financial
policies and maintain leverage at or below 4x (Moody's adjusted).
Moody's expects organic revenue growth in the high single digits,
increasing adjusted EBITDA margins, and declining non-recurring
expenses to support strong free cash flow generation of about low-
to mid-teens percentages of total debt (Moody's adjusted) over the
next 12 to 18 months. Strong growth in EBITDA will provide
TransUnion flexibility to use debt for small acquisitions or
consolidating equity interest in foreign affiliates over time,
while maintaining leverage at or below 4x.

The positive outlook reflects Moody's expectation that TransUnion's
credit metrics will strengthen from adjusted EBITDA and free cash
flow growth.

The Ba3 CFR reflects TransUnion's stronger business profile as a
result of increasing revenue diversification and its sustainable
market position as one of the three principal global consumer
credit bureaus. In the consumer credit bureau business, TransUnion
and its peers benefit from high barriers to entry. At the same
time, a significant portion of TransUnion's revenues are driven by
the demand for credit reports, which is correlated to US
macroeconomic cycles. However, the main risks to the ratings stem
from the potential for periodic increases in debt to fund
acquisitions as part of the company's growth strategy and the
approximately 51% common equity interest held in the company by its
financial sponsors, which in Moody's view increases TransUnion's
event risk.

The SGL-1 speculative grade liquidity rating reflects TransUnion's
very good liquidity.

Moody's could upgrade TransUnion's ratings if the company (i)
maintains good earnings growth, (ii) demonstrates a track record of
balanced financial policies, (ii) private equity funds' equity
ownership declines materially, and (iv) sustains total debt to
EBITDA below 4x (Moody's adjusted) and free cash flow above 12% of
total debt. Conversely, the ratings could be downgraded if
aggressive financial policies cause total debt to EBITDA (Moody's
adjusted) to increase above 5x and free cash flow declines below 8%
of total debt.

Moody's has taken the following actions:

Issuer -- Trans Union, LLC

Corporate Family Rating -- Upgraded to Ba3, from B1

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

$210 million senior secured revolving credit facility due 2020 --

Approximately $2 billion Term Loan B due 2021 -- Upgraded to Ba3

amendment

Approximately $2 billion Term Loan B due 2023 -- Assigned, Ba3

UCI INTERNATIONAL: Plan Filing Period Extended Through Feb. 27
--------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Mary F. Walrath of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District
of Delaware extended the exclusive periods during which UCI
International, LLC and its affiliated Debtors may file a chapter 11
plan and solicit acceptances to the plan, through February 27, 2017
and April 28, 2017, respectively.

The Troubled Company Reporter had earlier reported that the Debtors
sought for exclusivity extension, contending that they have:

     (a) negotiated, and obtained entry of an Order approving,
settlement agreements with (i) the Rank Group, the Committee, and
the Ad Hoc Group of Noteholders, and  (ii) the Pension Benefit
Guaranty Corporation, which provided for the transfer of the
Debtors' pension plans, avoided costly litigation between the
parties, and enhanced recoveries for the Debtors' stakeholders;

     (b) negotiated the terms of a replacement lease agreement for
the Debtors' corporate headquarters and obtained Court approval of
the same, resulting in significant cost savings to the Debtors and
their estates and facilitating the Debtors' efforts to separate
from the Rank Group;

     (c) prepared and obtained Court approval of various motions
authorizing the Debtors to assume certain executory contracts and
unexpired leases;

     (d) worked with various claimants to consensually resolve
motions requesting the allowance and payment of claims;

     (e) prepared and filed a motion to enforce the stay and
seeking damages against Group Xpress Exports, LLC, d/b/a, GXE, LLC,
f/k/a, Parts-Zone, S.A. de C.V., f/k/a Filtros Carossi, S.A. de
C.V. and Filtros Y Partes, S.A. de C.V.; and

     (f) commenced the claims reconciliation process, and, in
connection therewith, filed two omnibus claim objections.

The Court had entered its Confirmation Order, which confirmed the
Debtors' Joint Plan of Reorganization, but the Effective Date has
not yet occurred, as certain conditions precedent to the occurrence
of the Effective Date have not yet been met.

The Debtors told the Court that despite the progress made in their
chapter 11 cases thus far, the Effective Date of the Plan has not
yet occurred.  The Debtors further told the Court that to protect
their rights in the unlikely event that the Plan does not become
effective, the Debtors request entry of the Proposed Order granting
an extension of the Exclusive Periods for a period of 60 days.

UNIFRAX HOLDING: S&P Revises Outlook to Stable & Affirms 'B' CCR
----------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said that it revised its outlook on Unifrax to
stable from negative and affirmed all its ratings on the company,
including S&P's 'B' corporate credit rating.

The outlook revision reflects Unifrax's successful execution of its
cost-saving initiatives, which the company implemented in the third
quarter of 2015, and S&P's expectations that the company's core end
markets are stabilizing.  The company took these cost-reduction
actions in light of continued weakness in the global metals and
industrial markets served by its thermal management business, which
accounts for roughly half of the company's sales. As a result, the
company's EBITDA margin improved meaningfully, and debt leverage
improved to about 6.8x through the first nine months of 2016 from
about 7.3x as of year-end 2015.  S&P expects the company to achieve
incremental savings of roughly $30 million for the full year 2016
and additional savings in 2017, allowing it to deleverage with debt
to EBITDA trending toward 6x over the next 12 months.

Unifrax has a limited scale of operations as a niche producer of
specialty insulating materials for industrial thermal management,
automotive emission control, fire protection, and battery separator
and filtration markets.  S&P expects the company to maintain
significant market share globally as one of the top two competitors
in its segments; the remaining competition generally consists of
smaller regional players.  S&P also expects Unifrax to continue
generating a significant proportion of revenue from maintenance and
replacement demand and from consumable products--primarily in its
industrial segment--which S&P believes helps reduce volatility in
earnings and cash flow.  However, the company's end markets will
likely remain cyclical, fragmented, and highly competitive.  S&P
assess Unifrax's business risk profile as weak.

S&P's base-case forecast assumes these factors:

   -- Mid-single-digit percent revenue decline in 2016 due to
      negative foreign currency headwinds and continued weakness
      in thermal management, partly offset by growth in the
      company's emission control and specialty fiber segment.

   -- For 2017, S&P forecasts revenue to be roughly flat as end
      markets begin to stabilize.

   -- S&P Global Ratings' adjusted EBITDA margins improving to
      around 23% in 2016 and 25% in 2017, supported by
      restructuring and cost-saving initiatives.

   -- Moderately positive free operating cash flow (FOCF) of
      roughly $30 million in 2016, decreasing to roughly
      $15 million in 2017 as the company completes above normal
      capital spending following delays and underspending in 2016
      and to fund growth in its emission control and specialty
      fibers segment.  No acquisitions are expected over the next
      12 months.

Based on these assumptions, S&P arrives at these credit measures:

   -- S&P Global Ratings' adjusted debt-to-EBITDA measure of
      around 6.6x in 2016, improving toward 6x in the next 12-18
      months, resulting primarily from continued cost savings and
      debt repayment.

   -- Funds from operations (FFO) of 10%-11%.

Unifrax has adequate liquidity over the next 12 months, despite the
near-term maturity of its $50 million revolver, which expires in
November 2017.  As of September 2016, the revolver remained
undrawn, other than $1.2 million letters of credit outstanding.
While S&P don't anticipate Unifrax to draw on its revolver given
positive free cash flow, S&P expects the company to proactively
address its maturity to maintain financial flexibility.
Additionally, the company's term loans mature in 2018 and senior
notes mature in February 2019.

S&P expects that the company's sources of liquidity, not factoring
in the revolver, will be at least 1.2x its uses over this period.
S&P also expects that the company's net liquidity sources will
remain positive even if EBITDA declines by 15%.

Principal liquidity sources:

   -- More than $40 million in FFO annually; and
   -- Roughly $53 million cash on hand as of Sept. 30, 2016.

Principal liquidity uses:

   -- Capital expenditures of roughly $20 million in 2016 and
      S&P's expectations for an increase in spending in 2017;
   -- Modest working capital requirements; and
   -- About $5 million-$10 million term loan payments.

The revolver is subject to a springing senior secured net leverage
ratio covenant of 4.75 that goes into effect when the amount
outstanding exceeds $15 million.  The springing covenant steps down
to 4.5x on March 31, 2017, with further quarterly step-downs. S&P
believes the company would not be in compliance if the covenant
were to come into effect.  However, S&P do not expect the company
to draw on its revolver to an extent that it triggers the springing
covenant over the next several quarters.

The outlook is stable.  The company achieved targeted cost savings
in 2016, allowing it to reduce debt leverage to 6.8x from 7.3x at
the end of 2015, in spite of end market headwinds.  S&P expects
Unifrax will continue this trend in 2017, with leverage approaching
6x as end markets stabilize and the company is able to achieve
additional cost savings.  S&P expects the company will maintain
above average EBITDA margins in excess of 20% and positive FOCF.

S&P could lower the rating if end markets are likely to be weaker
than S&P expects, causing revenues to decline further and leverage
to remain above 6.5x.  S&P could also lower the rating if free cash
flow falls below S&P's expectations or if it appears likely that
the company will draw on its revolver to an extent that it triggers
the leverage covenant and the company is not likely to have 15%
headroom.  Additionally, S&P could lower ratings if Unifrax is not
able to address the near-term maturity of its revolver, as well as
proactively refinance the term loan maturing in November 2018.  

Although unlikely, S&P could raise its rating on Unifrax if
stronger than expected growth in the company's end markets leads to
high cash flow generation and greater debt reduction, such that its
financial leverage declines to and remains below 5x.  Before
considering an upgrade, S&P would also need to believe that the
company would adhere to a less aggressive financial policy
consistent with a higher rating.


VACATION FUN: Wants to Use Civic Financial Cash Collateral
----------------------------------------------------------
Vacation Fun, LLC seeks authorization from the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the Central District of California to use cash
collateral.

The Debtor intends to use cash collateral to pay for expenses of
maintaining and operating its Property, consisting of a
single-family home, operating as a short-term rental unit, located
at 907 West Broadway, Anaheim, CA 92805.  The Debtor believes the
Property to have a market value of approximately $699,000, as of
the Petition Date.

The Debtor proposes to use about $1,000 a month in cash collateral,
in order to generate income of $9,000 a month.

Without the ability to use the cash collateral, the Debtor will be
unable to pay its expenses, which will cause the Property to become
uninhabitable, thereby damaging Civic Financial's collateral and
significantly reducing the value of the Property.

The Property secures two obligations: one to Civic Financial
Services, which holds a deed of trust in the amount of $659,096,
and the other to the City of Anaheim, which holds a tax lien
against the Property for $10,000.

The Debtor asserts that Civic Financial's lien is oversecured since
it will attach to the net profits.  The Debtor further asserts that
the lien is secured by more and more cash as the Bankruptcy case
progresses.  As reflected in the Debtor's proposed Budget, the
Debtor's continued operation of the business will continue to
generate and preserve the value of the Property.

As adequate protection, the Debtor proposes to make interest
payments to Civic Financial in the amount of $4,200 a month and pay
the property taxes, leaving the Estate $2,000 to $3,000 each month.


The Debtor asserts that the use of cash collateral is critical to
its ability to implement an effective reorganization strategy.  The
Debtor further asserts if it is permitted to use cash collateral,
in accordance with the Budget -- which projects total monthly
operating expenses of $5,625 -- the Debtor will be able to preserve
and maximize its asset as it will be generating revenue from its
continued operating, thereby allowing the Debtor to make interest
payments now and to save the funds to pay the arrears once the case
is confirmed.   

A hearing on the Debtor's Motion is scheduled on Feb. 1, 2016 at
10:00 a.m.

                       About Vapor Corp

Vapor Corp. operates 20 vape stores in the Southeastern United
States and online where it sells vaporizers, liquids for vaporizers
and e-cigarettes.  The Company also designs, markets and
distributes electronic cigarettes, vaporizers, e-liquids and
accessories under the Vapor X, Hookah Stix, Vaporin, Krave, and
Honey Stick brands.  "Electronic cigarettes" or "e-cigarettes," and
"vaporizers" are battery-powered products that enable users to
inhale nicotine vapor without fire, smoke, tar, ash, or carbon
monoxide.  The Company also designs and develops private label
brands for its distribution customers.  Third party manufacturers
manufacture the Compoany's products to meet its design
specifications.  The Company markets its products as alternatives
to traditional tobacco cigarettes and cigars.  In 2014, as a
response to market product demand changes, Vapor began to shift its
primary focus from electronic cigarettes to vaporizers.

Vapor Corp reported a net loss allocable to common shareholders of
$36.26 million in 2015 following a net loss allocable to common
shareholders of $13.85 million in 2014.  As of Sept. 30, 2016,
Vapor Corp. had $20.76 million in total assets, $48.72 million in
total liabilities and a total stockholders' deficit of $27.95
million.
   
Marcum LLP, in New York, NY, issued a "going concern" qualification
on the consolidated financial statements for the year ended Dec.
31, 2015, citing that Company has incurred net losses and needs to
raise additional funds to meet its obligations and sustain its
operations.  In addition, the Company currently does not have
enough authorized common shares to settle all of its outstanding
warrants if those warrants were exercised pursuant to their
cashless exercise provisions.  As a result, the Company could be
required to settle a portion of these warrants with cash.  These
conditions, the auditors said, raise substantial doubt about the
Company's ability to continue as a going concern.


VAUGHAN FITNESS: U.S. Trustee Unable to Appoint Committee
---------------------------------------------------------
An official committee of unsecured creditors has not yet been
appointed in the Chapter 11 case of Vaughan Fitness, as of Jan. 19,
according to a court docket.

Headquartered in Las Vegas, Nevada, Vaughan Fitness filed for
Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection (Bankr. D. Nev. Case No. 16-14940)
on Sept. 8, 2016, estimating its assets at up to $50,000 and its
liabilities at betweeen $100,001 and $500,000.  Seth D Ballstaedt,
Esq., at The Ballstaedt Law Firm serves as the Debtor's bankruptcy
counsel.


VIOLIN MEMORY: Posts $17.6M Net Loss in 3 Months Ended Oct. 31
--------------------------------------------------------------
Violin Memory, Inc. disclosed in a filing with the Securities and
Exchange Commission that it posted a net loss of $17,606,000 for
the three months ended Oct. 31, 2016, on total revenues of
$7,022,000.

The Company said that as of Oct. 31, 2016, it had $38,841,000 in
total assets against $144,467,000 in total liabilities, and
$105,626,000 in stockholders' deficit.

The Company said it was not able to complete its quarterly report
on Form 10-Q for the period ended October 31, 2016, by the
prescribed date without unreasonable effort or expense due to
ongoing restructuring discussions.  In lieu of such report, and
without limiting the Company's intentions with respect to its
reporting obligations during the pendency of the Chapter 11 Case,
the Company filed the Condensed Consolidated Statements of
Operations, Condensed Consolidated Balance Sheets and Condensed
Consolidated Statements of Cash Flows for the period ended October
31, 2016 with this Current Report on Form 8-K. The Financial
Schedules assume the Company will continue as a going concern, with
realization of assets and settlement of liabilities in the normal
course of business. They do not include any adjustments for the
recovery and classification of assets or the amounts and
classification of liabilities that might be necessary should the
Company be unable to continue as a going concern.

A copy of Violin's report is available at https://is.gd/pswu7P

During the pendency of the Chapter 11 Case, the Company plans to
modify its reporting with respect to its obligations under the
federal securities laws. During such period, in lieu of filing
periodic reports on Forms 10-K and Forms 10-Q, the Company plans to
file Current Reports on Form 8-K attaching the monthly operating
reports filed with the Bankruptcy Court in the Chapter 11 Case.

The Company plans to continue to file current reports on Form 8-K
as required by the federal securities laws. The Company believes
that this modified reporting program is consistent with the
protection of its investors as set forth in SEC Exchange Act
Release No. 9660, dated June 30, 1972.

WILLIAM THOMAS JR: Court Won't Amend Clear Channel Lift Stay Order
------------------------------------------------------------------
Judge David S. Kennedy of the United States Bankruptcy Court for
the Western District of Tennessee, Western Division, denied Debtor
William H. Thomas, Jr.'s Rule 9023 motion to alter or amend the
order entered on November 28, 2016.

On February 4, 2016, the Tennessee Chancery Court entered a
judgment in favor of Clear Channel Outdoor, Inc., in the amount of
$3,906,000, and in favor of Tennison Brothers, Inc., in the amount
of $1,094,670.94 arising from Thomas' alleged construction of an
unpermitted and illegal billboard without obtaining a permit under
the Tennessee Billboard Act.  

On April 15, 2016, Thomas appealed the judgment to the Tennessee
Court of Appeals.  However, after filing the notice of appeal, on
June 3, 2016, Thomas submitted a suggestion of bankruptcy to the
Court of Appeals.

Clear Channel and Tennison Brothers both filed proofs of claim in
Thomas' Chapter 11 case based upon the judgment rendered by the
Chancery Court.  On October 28, 2016, Clear Channel filed a motion
and memorandum for relief from the automatic stay to allow the
pending appeal to proceed to finality; and on October 31, 2016,
Tennison Brothers filed a notice of joinder.  

On November 28, 2016, the Court entered a combined order granting
both Clear Channel's motion and Tennison Brothers' notice of
joinder.  The Court found that sufficient "cause" existed to allow
Clear Channel and Tennison Brothers relief from the automatic stay
in order for the appeal to be finalized.

On December 12, 2016, Thomas filed a motion to alter or amend the
Court's order which lifted the automatic stay as to Clear Channel
and Tennison Brothers.

Judge Kennedy found that Thomas has not sufficiently satisfied any
of the three required ways to alter or amend a prior order.  First,
the judge does not believe that the Court committed a clear error
of law.  Second, the judge noted that there has not been any newly
discovered evidence to present to the Court.  Lastly, the judge
opined that the prior ordder does not rise to a level that would
create "manifest injustice."  In addition, the judge pointed out
that Thomas is absolutely afforded the right to appeal the order.
Judge Kennedy saw no reason under a totality of the particular
facts and circumstances and applicable law to reconsider the
Court's prior order because Thomas offered no reasonable legal or
factual basis to alter, amend, or vacate the prior Order.

order is available at http://bankrupt.com/misc/tnwb16-27850-208.pdf

[*] Leveraged Loan Defaults Start Slow in 2017, Fitch Says
----------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. leveraged loan default rate ended 2016 at 1.8%, nearly on
par with the 1.7% rate seen at end-2015, says Fitch Ratings.  That
rate is poised to move lower in January as $3.3 billion in defaults
from last year move out of the trailing 12-month (TTM) universe.

By end-January 2017, Fitch expects the rate will fall to 1.5%,
although it could move higher soon.  Avaya is expected to file and
would push the default rate back to its 2016 year-end level.

"The past two Januaries included sizable defaults from Caesars and
Arch Coal, but this year has been quiet so far, with only one small
default for Shelf Drilling Holdings on the books," said Eric
Rosenthal, Senior Director of U.S. Leveraged Finance.

Excluding energy and metals/mining, the 2016 default rate was at
just 0.8% but is expected to tick up slightly this year.  The
energy and metals/mining sector default rates reached new highs
last year, ending 2016 at 14.2% and 23.6%, respectively, while the
E&P subsector finished at 22.4%.

In the current improving commodity price environment, post-default
loan trading prices are also rising.  First-lien loans saw their
30-day TTM post-default secondary bid prices advance to 50% at
end-2016, up from 39% at the end of 3Q16.  Par-weighted 30-day
post-default prices averaged 61% over the past 10 years.

With last year's commodity price-related stresses affecting many
larger, public E&P and coal companies, sponsored companies across
all sectors showed slightly more resilience with an end-2016
default rate of 1.3%, lower than the 1.5% rate seen at end-2015.
The sponsored TTM rate is expected to finish January around 1.1%.
Non-sponsored companies ended 2016 at a rate of 2.6%, up from 2.2%
at end-2015.  Dex Media Inc., Arch Coal Inc., Peabody Energy Corp.
and C&J Energy Services Ltd drove the non-sponsored default rate.

Fitch's CLO portfolio had a low par-weighted average default
exposure of just 0.7%.  Fitch has identified a handful of companies
with a high risk of default in the next year that could impact
holdings within some Fitch CLO portfolios, which include Seadrill
Ltd, iHeart Communications, and Avaya.


[*] Recoveries Drop for Sector Debt Holders, Fitch Says
-------------------------------------------------------
Junior energy and metals & mining creditors saw lower recoveries in
bankruptcies resolved during the most recent commodity price
downturn, according to the latest edition of Fitch Ratings' Energy,
Power and Commodities Bankruptcy Case Studies report.

The average recovery rate for 48 unsecured claims in the sector
bankruptcy study was 30%, down from a 47% average recorded in
Fitch's April 2015 report.

"Relatively low enterprise valuations pushed fulcrum security
positions up in capital structures, leaving junior debt holders
with less residual value amid high leverage, price volatility and a
challenging M&A environment earlier in 2016," says Sharon Bonelli,
Senior Director, Leveraged Finance.

However, first lien debt recoveries held up, and were generally
stable at an average of 83% in the latest update versus 84% in
April 2015.

Many of the bankruptcies completed during the 2015 and 2016
downturn utilized restructuring support agreements (RSAs), with the
objective of right-sizing the capital structure rather than dealing
with operational or other business challenges.  Pre-negotiated
cases minimized the average time in bankruptcy to four months,
compared to 11 months in cases that occurred before the last
downturn.

A number of the energy companies that filed for bankruptcy over the
past two years were smaller companies that were based in higher
cost production regions.  Exploration and production (E&P)
companies and oilfield services providers were frequently among
those filing as limited financial flexibility, coupled with
borrowing base reductions and capex cuts took their toll in the low
commodity price environment.

Coal companies also felt the pain induced by weak market prices,
competition from natural gas in steam coal markets, and rising
environmental and compliance costs.

The adverse cyclical and secular dynamics resulted in record high
yield default rates in 2016 for the energy and metals & mining
sectors.  Those sectors reached default rate peaks of 18.8% and
17.4% respectively last year.  For issuers with high leverage and
insufficient liquidity, bankruptcy was the best or only option in
the face of depressed cash flow.

"By and large we believe the worst is over and the industries are
past the trough points," says Bonelli.  "That said, while many of
the large high yield issuer defaults have already occurred, there
are companies with significant leverage that still have elevated
default risk."

Fitch has identified 21 high yield energy and metals & mining
companies, with $27.2 billion of bonds outstanding, it believes are
at high risk of default over the next 12 months.  In addition,
there are 22 term loan borrowers from the two sectors that have
$16.5 billion of loans outstanding.

Fitch forecasts the energy sector high-yield default rate will end
2017 at a much lower 3% rate.

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.
