21ST CENTURY: Further Extends TSA Deadline to Jan. 31
-----------------------------------------------------
As previously disclosed, on Dec. 6, 2016, 21st Century Oncology
Holdings, Inc., 21st Century Oncology, Inc., a subsidiary of the
Company, and certain of the Company's other subsidiaries entered
into a Forbearance Agreement relating to the Company's indenture
and a Forbearance Agreement relating to the Company's credit
agreement, with certain of 21C's noteholders and lenders,
respectively.  The Forbearance Agreements were subsequently amended
on Dec. 15, 2016.  As amended, the Forbearance Agreements required,
among other things, that 21C enter into a transaction support
agreement with its noteholders and lenders no later than Jan. 4,
2017.

On Jan. 15, 2017, the Company entered into amendments to the
Forbearance Agreements to, among other things, amend the TSA
Deadline to Jan. 31, 2017.  The Forbearance Agreements, as amended
by the Amendments, provide that the noteholders and lenders party
thereto will forbear, subject to important exceptions, until the
earlier of Jan. 31, 2017, and the occurrence of certain events (as
described in the Forbearance Agreements) from exercising any rights
and remedies under 21C's indenture, notes or credit agreement, as
applicable, on account of certain events of default.

In addition, on Jan. 15, 2017, Medical Developers, LLC, an indirect
wholly owned subsidiary of the Company and certain of its
affiliates, entered into an amendment to the MDL Credit and
Guarantee Agreement to extend the maturity date from Jan. 15, 2017,
to Jan. 31, 2017.

                       About 21st Century

Fort Myers, Florida-based 21st Century Oncology Holdings, Inc.
(NYSEMKT:ICC), formerly Radiation Therapy Services Holdings, Inc.,
is a physician-led provider of integrated cancer care (ICC)
services.  It operates an integrated network of cancer treatment
centers and affiliated physicians in the world which, as of
December 31, 2015, deployed approximately 947 community-based
physicians in the fields of radiation oncology, medical oncology,
breast, gynecological, general surgery and urology.  As of December
31, 2015, the Company's physicians provided medical services at
approximately 375 locations, including over 181 radiation therapy
centers, of which 59 operated in partnership with health systems.
Its cancer treatment centers in the United States are operated
under the 21st Century Oncology brand.

assets, $1.39 billion in total liabilities, $472.34 million in
series A convertible redeemable preferred stock, $19.24 million in
non-controlling interests - redeemable and a total deficit of
$833.89 million.

                          *     *     *

As reported by the TCR on Nov. 4, 2016, S&P Global Ratings lowered
its corporate credit rating on 21st Century Oncology Holdings Inc.
to 'SD' from 'CCC' and removed the ratings from CreditWatch, where
they were placed with negative implications on May 17, 2016.  "The
downgrade follows 21st Century's announcement that it failed to
make the Nov. 1, 2016, interest payment on the 11.0% senior
unsecured notes due 2023," said S&P Global Ratings credit analyst
Matthew O'Neill.  Given S&P's view of the company's debt level as
unsustainable, and ongoing restructuring discussions, it do not
expect a payment to be made within the grace period.


611 COMMERCIAL: March 2 Amended Disclosure Statement Hearing
------------------------------------------------------------
Judge John J. Thomas of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Middle
District of Pennsylvania has scheduled a hearing on March 2, 2017,

ALEIDA JOHNSON: Supreme Court Hears Arguments on Debt Collection
----------------------------------------------------------------
Katy Stech, writing for The Wall Street Journal Pro Bankruptcy,
reported that the U.S. Supreme Court wrestled over whether debt
collectors are abusing the bankruptcy process when they ask a
person to pay a bill so old it is no longer collectible under state
laws.

According to the WSJ, the Supreme Court heard arguments on a
controversial practice of the debt collection industry in which
firms file paperwork in a consumer bankruptcy case to collect an
expired debt.

The Troubled Company Reporter, citing The Wall Street Journal Pro
Bankruptcy, previously reported that the Supreme Court will decide
whether a debt-collection agency can be punished for trying to
collect an old credit-card debt from a woman who filed for Chapter
13 bankruptcy.

According to the report, the Supreme Court on Oct. 11, 2016,
granted a petition for a writ of certiorari brought by Midland
Funding LLC, which faces penalties under federal debt collections
law for attempting to collect payment on years-old credit-card
debt
from a person who had sought bankruptcy protection.

The WSJ related that some debt, such as credit cards and medical
bills, aren't collectible after three to six years under state
laws.  Some consumer advocates say debt collectors who try to
collect that money should be fined under the Fair Debt Collection
Practices Act, a 1977 law that bans debt collectors from using
misleading tactics, the report said.

The industry's business model itself drew questioning from the
justices at the arguments, the report further related.  In the case
before them, the debt collector would only have profited if the
bankrupt customer decided to pay a 10-year-old credit-card bill
that had expired, the report said.

"I'm having a great deal of difficulty with this business model,"
Justice Sonia Sotomayor asked. "You filed a claim and you hope the
trustee doesn't see that it's out of time?"

The arguments arose from the bankruptcy of Alabama resident Aleida
Johnson, who filed for chapter 13 protection in 2014, the Journal
related.  As part of the process, businesses and people owed money
from a person who files for chapter 13 protection can be paid over
three to five years by stating that they have a claim, the report
said.

Debt-collection agency Midland Funding LLC, a subsidiary of
debt-collecting firm Encore Capital Group, filed a proof of claim
in Ms. Johnson's case, pushing to collect $1,879.71 from a credit
card last used in May 2003, the report further related.  Under
Alabama law, creditors can't collect a debt that is more than six
years old, the report added.

Midland Funding agreed that the debt was too old to collect under
state law; however, it argued that bankruptcy law's fine print
doesn't explicitly ban creditors from trying to collect older
debts, the report added.

The case is Midland v. Aleida Johnson, 16-348.


ALLY FINANCIAL: BlackRock Reports 5.7% Equity Stake as of Dec. 31
-----------------------------------------------------------------
In an amended Schedule 13D filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission, BlackRock, Inc. disclosed that as of Dec. 31, 2016, it
beneficially owns 26,687,872 shares of common stock of Ally
Financial Inc. representing 5.7 percent of the shares outstanding.
A full-text copy of the regulatory filing is available at:

                      https://is.gd/vWmB0q

                      About Ally Financial

Ally Financial Inc., formerly GMAC Inc. -- http://www.ally.com/--
is one of the world's largest automotive financial services
companies.  The Company offers a full suite of automotive
financing products and services in key markets around the world.
Ally's other business units include mortgage operations and
commercial finance, and the company's subsidiary, Ally Bank,
offers online retail banking products.  Ally operates as a bank
holding company.

GMAC obtained a $17 billion bailout from the U.S. government in
exchange for a 56.3 percent stake.  Private equity firm Cerberus
Capital Management LP keeps 14.9 percent, while General Motors Co.
owns 6.7 percent.

Ally reported net income of $1.28 billion on $4.86 billion of total
net revenue for the year ended Dec. 31, 2015, compared to net
income of $1.15 billion on $4.65 billion of total net revenue for
the year ended Dec. 31, 2014.

As of Sept. 30, 2016, Ally Financial had $157.4 billion in total
assets, $143.8 billion in total liabilities and $13.63 billion in
total equity.

                           *     *     *

As reported by the TCR on Oct. 14, 2016, S&P Global Ratings said it
revised its outlook on Ally Financial to stable from positive and
affirmed the 'BB+' long-term issuer credit rating.

"The revised outlook reflects weakening credit conditions in the
vehicle finance industry, in our view, which represents the
majority of Ally's business," said S&P Global Ratings credit
analyst Matthew Carroll.

In the April 3, 2014, edition of the TCR, Fitch Ratings has
upgraded Ally Financial Inc.'s long-term Issuer Default Rating
(IDR) and senior unsecured debt rating to 'BB+' from 'BB'.
The rating upgrade reflects increased clarity around Ally's
ownership structure given Ally's recent announcement that it has
launched an initial public offering those shares of its common
stock held by the U.S. Treasury (the Treasury).

As reported by the TCR on July 16, 2014, Moody's Investors Service
affirmed the 'Ba3' corporate family and 'B1' senior unsecured
ratings of Ally Financial and revised the outlook for the
ratings to positive from stable.  Moody's affirmed Ally's ratings
and revised its rating outlook to positive based on the company's
progress toward sustained improvements in profitability and
repayment of government assistance received during the financial
crisis.


ANTERRA ENERGY: Court Extends CCAA Stay Until April 14
------------------------------------------------------
Anterra Energy Inc. on Jan. 19, 2017, disclosed that the Court of
Queen's Bench of Alberta, Judicial Centre of Calgary (the "Court")
has granted an extension until April 14, 2017 of the stay of
proceedings granted in the Initial Order dated May 6, 2016 pursuant
to which Anterra was granted creditor protection under the
Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act (Canada) (the "CCAA").  The
extension was supported by PricewaterhouseCoopers Inc., the
Court-appointed Monitor of Anterra's CCAA process.

                      About Anterra Energy Inc.

Anterra Energy Inc. -- http://www.anterraenergy.com/-- is a
Canada-based oil focused junior exploration and production company.

optimization and production of crude oil and natural gas in western

River Oil, Buck Lake - Cardium Oil, Nipisi - Gilwood Oil,

ARMSTRONG ENERGY: S&P Hikes CCR to CCC, Off CreditWatch Developing
------------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said it raised its corporate credit rating on
Armstrong Energy Inc. to 'CCC' from 'CCC-' and removed the rating
from CreditWatch, where it was placed with developing implications
on Oct. 24, 2016.  The outlook is negative.

Armstrong's financial sponsor and majority owner, Yorktown Partners
LLC., has entered into an option agreement with Rhino Resource
Partners L.P. through its wholly owned investment partnership that
gives an option to the partnership to acquire substantially all of
the outstanding common stock of Armstrong Energy.

The option can be exercised between Jan. 1, 2018 and Dec. 31, 2019,
and is conditioned upon the holders of Armstrong's 11.75% senior
secured notes agreeing to restructure their bonds.  The bond
restructuring has been extended beyond the next 12 months, and
S&P's believes it is unlikely that Armstrong Energy will have
liquidity issues in the interim.

At the same time, S&P raised its issue-level rating on the
company's senior secured notes to 'CCC' from 'CCC-' and removed the
rating from CreditWatch, where S&P had placed it with developing
implications on Oct. 24, 2016.  The recovery rating remains '4',
indicating S&P's expectation of average recovery. However, S&P
revised its recovery expectation to the upper half of the 30%-50%
range from the lower half given the termination of the company's
asset-based revolving facility (ABL) facility.

"The negative outlook reflects our view that the company is likely
to pursue a distressed exchange or debt restructuring within the
next 12 months," said S&P Global Ratings credit analyst Vania
Dimova.  "We anticipate that free operating cash flow will remain
negative, which will continue to erode liquidity, and that the
company will continue to retain strategic advisers to explore
restructuring options for its debt obligations."

S&P would lower the rating if the company pursued an exchange offer
or debt restructuring.  This could happen in order to satisfy the
option requirement to restructure the 11.75% senior secured notes.
S&P could also lower the rating if liquidity deteriorated such that
S&P anticipated a default within six months without an unforeseen
positive development.

S&P would revise the outlook to stable if it believed that the
company was no longer likely to pursue a debt restructuring and
liquidity became adequate.  This could happen if end market demand
and prices materially improved from current levels.

AVAYA INC: Reports Fourth Quarter & Fiscal Year 2016 Results
------------------------------------------------------------
Avaya Inc. on Jan. 19, 2017, reported financial results for the
fourth fiscal quarter and fiscal year ended September 30, 2016.

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 September 30, 2016, an increase of $67
million from the prior quarter and up $13 million from fourth
quarter 2015.

"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 [Thurs]day, 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."

Fourth Fiscal Quarter Highlights

   -- Company book-to-bill was greater than 1.  Total bookings for
the fourth quarter increased 13% from the prior quarter and were 7%
below the prior year in constant currency

   -- Industry leading service and support drives Net Promoter

BANNER GLASS: Unsecureds to Recoup 80% Under Liquidation Plan
-------------------------------------------------------------
Banner Glass, Inc., filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Maryland a disclosure statement in support of its plan
of liquidation, dated Jan. 17, 2017.

Prior to the Petition Date, Banner Glass, Inc., operated an
automobile, residential and commercial glass installation business
in Maryland and Virginia.  As of the Petition Date, the Debtor
operated from leased locations in Silver Spring, Maryland;
Rockville, Maryland; Oxon Hill, Maryland; Ellicott City, Maryland;
Glen Burnie, Maryland; and Chantilly, Virginia. The Debtor also
conducted business operations from a property that it owns in
Leesburg, Virginia, located at 305 Industrial Court, Southeast,
Leesburg, Virginia 20175 ("Real Property").

On July 8, 2016, Banner Glass voluntarily commenced this Chapter 11
Case. Promptly after filing the Chapter 11 Case, the Debtor
retained Tiger Commercial and Industrial to evaluate a sale of the
Debtor’s business, both as an asset sale and as a going concern.
After careful consideration, the Debtor determined, in consultation
with Tiger, that an auction of its assets was in the best interest
of Creditors and the estate.

The Debtor is in the process of liquidating its Assets and
distributing the proceeds to Creditors holding Allowed Claims. The
Plan provides that on the Effective Date, the proceeds of the sale
of the Debtor's Assets (less wind-down expenses) will be turned
over to a Plan Administrator, who will, in turn, make distributions
to Holders of Allowed Claims. Based on information presently known,
the Debtor estimates that Holders of Class 5 General Unsecured
Claims will receive a distribution equal to approximately 80% of
their Claims. Holders of Class 5 Unsecured Claims should be aware,
however, that the estimated distribution percentage is subject to
change, based on the allowance of Claims and the recovery of
Avoidance Actions and Causes of Action.

Distributions to Creditors under the Plan will be funded from the
proceeds of the sale of the Auction, the sale of the Real Property,
the collection of receivables, and from the proceeds of Avoidance
Actions and Causes of Action.

BILL BARRETT: Inks Confidentiality Agreement With BCEI
------------------------------------------------------
Bill Barrett Corporation has entered into a confidentiality
agreement with Bonanza Creek Energy, Inc. pertaining to BCEI's
Chapter 11 proceeding, and has indicated its interest in a
combination transaction involving the Company and a reorganized
BCEI, according to a Form 8-K report filed with the Securities and
Exchange Commission.

                      About Bill Barrett

Denver-based Bill Barrett Corporation is an independent energy
company that develops, acquires and explores for oil and natural
gas resources.  All of the Company's assets and operations are
located in the Rocky Mountain region of the United States.

Bill Barrett reported a net loss of $488 million in 2015 following
net income of $15.08 million in 2014.

As of Sept. 30, 2016, Bill Barrett had $1.33 billion in total
assets, $826.4 million in total liabilities and $509.2 million in
total stockholders' equity.

                          *    *    *

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.

BROADVIEW NETWORKS: BlackRock Reports 8.8% Stake as of Dec. 31
--------------------------------------------------------------
In an amended Schedule 13G filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission, BlackRock, Inc. disclosed that as of Dec. 31, 2016, it
beneficially owns 883,150 shares of common stock of Broadview
Networks Holdings Inc. representing 8.8 percent of the shares
outstanding.  A full-text copy of the regulatory filing is
available for free at https://is.gd/JvKg4U

                   About Broadview Networks

Rye Brook, N.Y.-based Broadview Networks Holdings, Inc., is a
communications and IT solutions provider to small and medium sized
business ("SMB") and large business, or enterprise, customers
nationwide, with a historical focus on markets across 10 states
throughout the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic United States, including
the major metropolitan markets of New York, Boston, Philadelphia,
Baltimore and Washington, D.C.

Broadview Networks reported a net loss of $9.79 million in 2015, a
net loss of $9.22 million in 2014 and a net loss of $8.48 million
in 2013.

As of Sept. 30, 2016, Broadview had $207.6 million in total assets,
$217.1 million in total liabilities and a total stockholders'
deficiency of $9.48 million.

                           *     *     *

In the July 23, 2012, edition of the Troubled Company Reporter,
Moody's Investors Service downgraded Broadview Networks Holdings,
Inc. Corporate Family Rating (CFR) to 'Caa3' from 'Caa2' and the
Probability of Default Rating (PDR) to 'Ca' from 'Caa3' in response
to the company's announcement that it has entered into a
restructuring support agreement with holders of roughly 70% of its
preferred stock and roughly 66-2/3% of its Senior Secured Notes.
The company is expected to file a pre-packaged Chapter 11 Plan of
Reorganization or complete an out of court exchange offer.

As reported by the TCR on July 25, 2012, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services lowered its corporate credit rating on Broadview to 'D'
from 'CC'.  "This action follows the company's announced extension
on its revolving credit facility.  We expect to lower the issue-
level rating on the notes to 'D' once the company files for
bankruptcy, or if it misses the Sept. 1, 2012 maturity payment on
the notes," S&P said.


BUILDERS FIRSTSOURCE: Moody's Rates New $468MM Term Loan 'B3'
-------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a B3 rating to Builders
FirstSource, Inc.'s proposed $468 million senior term loan due
2024. This facility replaces the company's senior secured term loan
due 2022, at which time the rating for this debt will be withdrawn.
BLDR anticipates a reduced rate for the proposed term loan relative
to the existing term loan that is being refinanced. Moody's expects
the proposed term loan to have substantially the same terms and
conditions as the existing senior secured term loan due 2022, and
to rank pari passu to the company's 5.625% $750 mil. Sr. Sec. Notes
due 2024, which are rated B3. BLDR's B3 Corporate Family Rating and
its B3- PD Probability of Default Rating are not impacted by the
proposed transaction. The Caa2 rating assigned to the Notes due
2023, as well as the company's SGL-3 speculative grade liquidity
rating, remain unchanged. The rating outlook is stable.

Moody's views the proposed lower pricing and maturity date
extension for the term loan as credit positives. Cash interest
savings could be upwards of $2 million per year. However, BLDR will
not begin to reap the benefits of these lower cash interest
payments until late 2017, since it needs to pay related fees and
expenses. Upon closing of the proposed term loan extension, BLDR
will have about $2.2 billion of total debt, inclusive of about $250
million of lease finance and capital lease obligations and
approximately $190 million of adjustments for operating lease
commitments. BLDR has an extended debt maturity profile with the
nearest maturity coming in July 2020 when its revolver comes due
followed by its unsecured notes due in 2023.

The following rating actions were taken:

Point Estimates Adjustments:

Issuer: Builders FirstSource, Inc.

-- Senior Secured Regular Bond/Debenture, remained at a range of
LGD4

-- Senior Unsecured Regular Bond/Debenture, adjusted to a range of
LGD6 from a range of LGD5

Assignments:

Issuer: Builders FirstSource, Inc.

-- Senior Secured Bank Credit Facility, Assigned B3 (LGD4)

Outlook Actions:

Issuer: Builders FirstSource, Inc.

-- Outlook, Remains Stable

RATING RATIONALE

Builders FirstSource's B3 Corporate Family Rating reflects its
currently highly leveraged capital structure. Adjusted pro forma
leverage at 3Q16 approximates 5.8x, and pro forma adjusted interest
coverage (measured as EBITA-to-interest expense) is about 1.5x for
LTM 3Q16. Moody's expects modestly improving operating margins,
providing some offset to the large amount of debt in BLDR's capital
structure. In addition, new housing construction and repair and
remodeling activity, main revenue drivers, are experiencing solid
growth trends, which Moody's anticipate will continue over the next
12 to 18 months. Good revolver availability provides much needed
liquidity for the company to contend with high fixed charge
payments while meeting seasonal working capital demands.

The principal methodology used in this rating was "Distribution &
Supply Chain Services Industry" published in December 2015.

Builders FirstSource, Inc. ("BLDR") headquartered in Dallas, TX, is
one of the largest national suppliers of building products,
prefabricated components, and services for new residential
construction and repair and remodeling. It distributes lumber and
lumber sheet goods, millwork, windows, interior and exterior doors,
and other building products, as well as manufactured components and
construction services. JLL Partners, through its respective
affiliates, is the largest shareholder. Pro forma revenues for the
12 months through September 30, 2016 totaled approximately $6.3
billion.


CALIFORNIA STATEWIDE: Moody's Affirms B1 Series 2007 Bonds Rating
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has affirmed the B1 rating on the Series
2007 A-2 taxable pension obligation bonds issued by the California
Statewide Communities Development Authority. The rating action
affects approximately $15.568 million in debt.

The B1 rating reflects the weakened credit quality of the lowest
rated pool participant, offset by the improved credit quality of
all other pool members.

In consideration of the small size of the pool and absence of any
cross-collateralization among the participants, the rating is based
Moody's weak-link-plus approach to pooled obligations. This
approach allows for a lift of up to two notches above the lowest
rated participant's individual obligation. The uplift cannot exceed
the weighted average credit quality of the pool participants, with
the weights being each participant's proportionate share of the
debt service on the applicable series of bonds. Additionally, if
one of the participants has a speculative-grade rating, the rating
of the applicable series of bonds cannot exceed Ba1.

Rating Outlook

Outlooks are typically not assigned to credits with this amount of
outstanding debt.

Factors that Could Lead to an Upgrade

Material improvement in the credit profile of lowest rated pool
participant

Greater weight in the pool on the stronger pool participants

Weighted average rating of the pool improves as a result of
improved credit fundamentals of participants

Factors that Could Lead to a Downgrade

Deterioration of the participants' credit quality

Legal Security

The bonds are unconditional obligations of the participating
municipalities, payable from any legally available funds. There is
no cross collateralization or cross default. Therefore, no
municipality is responsible for the bond repayments of any other
municipality, and default of one municipality will not constitute
default of any other municipality. In addition, the general funds
of the authority are not pledged to any bonds.

Use of Proceeds. Not applicable.

Obligor Profile

The California Statewide Communities Development Authority is a
public entity organized pursuant to a Joint Exercise of Powers
Agreement among a number of California counties, cities, and
special districts. The authority is authorized to issue bonds and
to finance working capital for local agencies in California.

Methodology

The principal methodology used in this rating was Public Sector
Pool Financings published in July 2012.


CALIFORNIA STATEWIDE: Moody's Hikes 2006 A-2 Bonds Rating to Ba3
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has upgraded to Ba3 from B1 the rating on
the Series 2006 A-2 taxable pension obligation bonds issued by the
California Statewide Communities Development Authority. The rating
action affects approximately $18.1 million in debt.

The Ba3 rating reflects the unchanged credit profile of weakest
pool participant offset by the materially improved credit quality
of other participants.

In consideration of the small size of the pool and absence of any
cross-collateralization among the participants, the rating is based
Moody's weak-link-plus approach to pooled obligations. This
approach allows for a lift of up to two notches above the lowest
rated participant's individual obligation. The uplift cannot exceed
the weighted average credit quality of the pool participants, with
the weights being each participant's proportionate share of the
debt service on the applicable series of bonds. Additionally, if
one of the participants has a speculative-grade rating, the rating
of the applicable series of bonds cannot exceed Ba1.

CARLMAC-MCKINNON'S: Unsecureds to Get 1.5% Dividend Under Plan
--------------------------------------------------------------
Carlmac-McKinnon's, Inc., filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the District of Massachusetts a combined liquidating plan and
disclosure statement for its small business, a full-text copy of

The Debtor has on hand all funds to perform its obligations under
the liquidating plan.

CHINA BAK: Effectuates Merger with Newly Formed Subsidiary
----------------------------------------------------------
China BAK Battery, Inc., filed Articles of Merger with the
Secretary of State of Nevada to effectuate a merger between the
Company and the Company's newly formed, wholly owned subsidiary,
CBAK Merger Sub, Inc.  According to the Articles of Merger,
effective Jan. 16, 2017, the Merger Sub merged with and into the
Company with the Company being the surviving entity.

As permitted by Chapter 92A.180 of Nevada Revised Statutes, the
sole purpose of the Merger was to effect a change of the Company's
name.  Upon the effectiveness of the filing of Articles of Merger
with the Secretary of State of Nevada, which is Jan. 16, 2017, the
Company's Articles of Incorporation were deemed amended to reflect
the change in the Company's corporate name.

The trading symbol of the Company's common stock will remain as
"CBAK".  The Company's common stock began trading on the Nasdaq
Global Market under the Company's new name when the market opened
on Jan. 17, 2017.
On Jan. 16, 2017, the Board of Directors of the Company approved a
change in the Company's fiscal year end from Sept. 30 to December
31.  Accordingly, the Company's next Annual Report on Form 10-K
will be for the fiscal year ending Dec. 31, 2017.  With this fiscal
year end change, the Company will file a transition report on Form
10-Q for the period from Oct. 1, 2016, through Dec. 31, 2016.

                      About China BAK

China BAK Battery conducted business through BAK International
Limited and its subsidiaries that produced prismatic cells,
cylindrical cells, lithium polymer cells and high power lithium
batters.  The BAK International business was foreclosed on
June 30, 2014.  Consequently, China BAK is looking to develop,
manufacture and sell energy high power lithium batteries primarily
for electric vehicles when its Dalian, China manufacturing
facilities start to operate in the first quarter of 2015.

China BAK reported a net loss of US$12.65 million on US$10.36
million of net revenues for the year ended Sept. 30, 2016, compared
to net profit of US$15.87 million on US$13.90 million of net
revenues for the year ended Sept. 30, 2015.

As of Sept. 30, 2016, China BAK had US$93.31 million in total
assets, US$78.22 million in total liabilities and US$15.08 million
in total shareholders' equity.

Centurion ZD CPA Limited, in Hong Kong, China, issued a "going
concern" qualification on the consolidated financial statements for
the year ended Sept. 30, 2016, citing that the Company has a
working capital deficiency, accumulated deficit from recurring net
losses and significant short-term debt obligations maturing in less
than one year as of Sept. 30, 2016.  All these factors raise
substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern,
the auditors said.


CIENA CORP: S&P Raises CCR to 'BB-' on Improved Leverage
--------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said that it raised its corporate credit rating
to 'BB-' from 'B+' on Hanover, Md.-based Ciena Corp.  The outlook
is stable.

At the same time, S&P assigned its 'BB+' issue-level rating with a
recovery rating of '1' to the company's new $400 million senior
secured term loan.  The '1' recovery rating indicates S&P's
expectation for very high recovery (90%-100%) of principal in the
event of a payment default.  S&P also raised its issue-level rating
on the company's senior unsecured debt to 'B+' from 'B'. The '5'
recovery rating indicates that unsecured creditors can expect
modest (10%-30%; in the lower half of the range) recovery in the
event of a default.

"The rating action reflects our view of Ciena's strong liquidity,
with more than $1 billion in cash and equivalents, and improved
financial metrics, based on adjusted gross leverage under the
mid-3x area, pro forma for the proposed $400 million term loan B,
and improving further to under the 3x area after the 2017
convertible matures," said S&P Global Ratings credit analyst Minesh
Shilotri.

The stable outlook reflects S&P's expectation that stable demand
for Ciena's 100G products, along with a diversifying customer base,
will lead to high-single-digit revenue growth and improving
leverage metrics over the next 12 months, and that the company will
use its strong liquidity position to settle upcoming 2017
convertible maturities.

affiliates will be liquidated over a projected period of nine
months.  Article 4.5 classifies all "Lead-Paint Claimants" in one
group that includes both insurance covered claimants and uninsured
claimants.

As was made clear at the confirmation hearing, the expectation is
that insurance covered claimants will simply return to the
prosecution of their pending cases in the state court.  On the
other hand, because Article 4.5 expressly limits state court
litigation claims to, "the proceeds of Lead-Paint Insurance
Policies applicable to [a claimants'] Lead-Paint Claim", uninsured
claimants will be compelled to resort to the $300,000 uninsured
fund for a full and final pro rata satisfaction of their claims
against either the debtors or the protected parties.  The uninsured
claimants, who are the post-1999 tenants of the debtors who
potentially have been poisoned by exposure to lead paint but whose
claims are likely not covered by the debtors' liability insurance,
therefore do not have a litigation option under the Final Plan.
Instead, upon pro rata payment from the $300,000 fund, or the
expiration of the two-year claims filing deadline, the claims of
uninsured claimants will be forever released and discharged.

Judge Gordon found that the uninsured claimants targeted by the
release were not represented by counsel and likely have no actual
knowledge of the trap set for their legal rights.  The judge found
and concluded that not one of the uninsured claimants actually
participated in the case, let alone gave overwhelming support to
the release.

Judge Gordon held that the Plan wrongfully provides for non-debtor,
third-party relief from liability.  The judge also cannot find that
the Plan either complies with the applicable provisions of Title 11
or it is proposed in good faith.  Instead, Judge Gordon concluded
that what the Final Plan proposes to do byway of the release is
devoid of equity and forbidden by law.

Because the Final Plan must be viewed as the plan proponents'
absolute best effort, the judge concluded that there is no
alternative but to appoint a trustee to wind up the debtors'
affairs and proceed to a managed liquidation.

opinion is available at:

CREATIVE REALITIES: Common Stock Up-Listed to OTCQB
---------------------------------------------------
Creative Realities, Inc., received a written notice that the
Company's common stock had been up-listed and approved for trading
on OTCQB, the higher tier of the OTC Markets, under its existing
symbol "CREX."  The Company had previously traded on the OTC Pink.

The OTCQB marketplace is considered by the Securities and Exchange
Commission as an "established public market" for the purpose of
determining the public market price when registering securities for
resale with the SEC.  The OTC Pink marketplace is not considered as
such, and most broker-dealers will not trade or recommend OTC Pink
stocks for their clients.  Because the OTCQB generally increases
transparency by maintaining higher reporting standards and
requirements and imposing management certification and compliance
requirements, the majority of broker-dealers trade stocks on the
OTCQB marketplace.  Historically, this has resulted in greater
liquidity and awareness for companies that reach the OTCQB market
tier.

The Company believes that trading on the OTCQB will likely enhance
trading liquidity, broaden its shareholder base and enhance
shareholder value.  The Company also believes that, as it continues
to focus on building a digital marketing business that delivers
long-term shareholder value, this up-listing to the OTCQB will also
serve as a stepping stone to meeting the requirements for a future
up-listing to the OTCQX anticipated later in 2017, and hopefully
for eventual admission to the NASDAQ or another national stock
exchange in the future.

CYTORI THERAPEUTICS: To Acquire All Assets of Azaya Therapeutics
----------------------------------------------------------------
Cytori Therapeutics, Inc. entered into an asset purchase agreement
with Azaya Therapeutics, Inc., a privately-held corporation
incorporated under the laws of the State of Delaware on Jan. 16,
2017, pursuant to which the Company will acquire substantially all
of the assets of Azaya and assume certain liabilities of the
Seller.

In connection with the Acquisition, the Company will acquire the
rights to develop and commercialize (i) the Seller's ATI-0918 drug
candidate, a generic bioequivalent formulation of DOXIL/CAELYX, a
chemotherapy drug that is a liposomal encapsulation of doxorubicin;
and (ii) Seller's ATI-1123 drug candidate, a liposomal formulation
of docetaxel.

Under the terms of the Purchase Agreement, at the closing of the
Acquisition the Company will (i) issue $2.0 million of shares of
its common stock, par value, $0.001 per share, in the Seller's
name, (A) $1.5 million of which will be delivered to the Seller at
the Closing, and (B) $0.5 million of which will be deposited into a
15-month escrow pursuant to a standard escrow agreement; and (ii)
assume the obligation to pay approximately $2.0 million of the
Seller's existing trade payables, which payments the Company
intends to make at or promptly after the Closing.  The price per
Share will be equal to the volume weighted average closing price of
the Shares on the Nasdaq Capital Market over the 10 consecutive
trading days ending on the trading date immediately prior to the
date of the Closing.  Pursuant to the Purchase Agreement, the
Company has agreed to use best efforts to file a registration
statement covering the resale of the Shares issued to the Sellers
within 30 days of the Closing, and to use commercially reasonable
efforts to cause such registration statement to be declared
effective as promptly as practicable following the filing.  The
Seller has agreed to abide by certain weekly and monthly
sale/transfer volume limitations with respect to selling the Shares
following their registration.

In addition, at the Closing, the Company will assume the
obligations to (i) pay the Seller fixed commercialization milestone
payments of up to $16.3 million in the aggregate, based upon
achievement of certain net sales milestones for ATI-0918; (ii) make
certain earn-out payments to Seller equal to a mid single-digit
percentage of net sales of ATI-0918; and (iii) make certain
earn-out payments to Seller equal to a low single-digit percentage
of net sales of any product, including ATI-1123, that practices a
claim in the related patent assigned by Seller to the Company.  The
Company's aggregate earn-out payment obligations to Seller from
global net sales of both ATI-0918 and any Patented Product will not
exceed $100.0 million.

Further, the Purchase Agreement provides that if the Company enters
into certain assignments, licenses or other transfers of rights to
a Patented Product or the ATI-1123 Patent, the Company will pay the
Seller a percentage in the low to mid teens of the consideration
received by the Company, provided, that the Company's aggregate
payment obligation to Seller for any such assignment, license or
other transfer of rights will not exceed $50 million.

If the Company or its successors, sublicensees or transferees sells
a competing product to ATI-0918 at any time prior to satisfaction
of the Earn-Out Cap, other than because ATI-0918 fails to receive
marketing authorization from the European Medicines Agency within a
certain period of time or fails to generate a minimum threshold of
net sales within a pre-determined amount of time, then 50% of the
net sales of such competing product would be deemed to be net sales
of ATI-0918 under the Purchase Agreement for purposes of
calculating commercialization milestone payments and earn-out
payments.

The Company has agreed to, and has agreed to require that any
successors, sublicensees or transferees, use commercially
reasonable efforts to develop and commercialize ATI-0918 and any
Patented Product.

Both the Company and Seller agreed to customary representations,
warranties and covenants in the Purchase Agreement.  Each party
also agreed to assume customary indemnification obligations,
provided, that the Seller's maximum liability to the Company for
breaches of Seller's representations and warranties in the Purchase
Agreement and any ancillary agreements entered into in connection
therewith, is limited to $3.9 million, subject to limited
exceptions.

The Company has entered into a five-year lease for Azaya's facility
located in San Antonio, Texas that is contingent upon the Closing
occurring.  The lease will represent an initial annual base rent
obligation of approximately $93,000.

The Closing is subject to the satisfaction of customary conditions,
including, without limitation (i) the Seller's receipt of
stockholder approval and (ii) the Company's receipt of consent from
its secured lender, Oxford Finance, LLC.

Prior to the Acquisition, the Company had no material relationships
with Seller or its affiliates.

EDUCATION MANAGEMENT: Milbank Prevails in Marblegate Case Appeal
----------------------------------------------------------------
Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy LLP on Jan. 19, 2017, disclosed
that it has secured a significant victory in the Second Circuit
that attracted wide-spread attention in the financial markets.  The
decision restores much-needed certainty regarding the legality of
out-of-court debt restructurings, and it brings stability to the
corporate debt market as a whole.  The case has been closely
watched by investors and other market participants for over two
years.

The closely watched appeal before the United States Court of
Appeals for the Second Circuit challenged the district court's
decision in Marblegate Asset Management, LLC v. Education
Management Finance Corp. that held that Education Management's
out-of-court debt restructuring did not violate the Trust Indenture
Act.

At issue is the out-of-court restructuring of Education Management
Corporation and its affiliates, with the support of an overwhelming
majority of their secured and unsecured creditors, that reduced the
Company's debt burden by approximately $1.1 billion.  As part of
the restructuring, secured lenders that were owed approximately
$1.3 billion foreclosed on their collateral and triggered a
contractual release of a guaranty that the parent corporation had
provided in favor of the Company's unsecured noteholders.  One of
the unsecured noteholders holding 2% of the company's overall debt
-- a hedge fund that specializes in trading distressed debt --
challenged the Company's restructuring and sought an injunction.
The district court below denied the requested injunction and
allowed the restructuring to proceed, but held that section 316(b)
of the Trust Indenture Act entitled the holdout hedge fund to full
payment of principal and interest on its notes.

The district court's decision generated significant uncertainty in
the world of debt restructurings and the capital markets: market
participants, scholars, and prominent restructuring advisors viewed
the decision as calling into question the legality of a wide
variety of corporate transactions by bond issuers; the ability of
issuers to restructure obligations outside of costly bankruptcy
proceedings; and the right of secured creditors to exercise their
state-law foreclosure rights.  The decision generated considerable
academic scholarship, and spawned a series of new lawsuits
challenging the propriety of corporate transactions that are now
pending before the district courts.

According to commentators who have written about the case, as a
result of the district court's decision, "out-of-court
restructurings of public debt [had] largely ground to a halt," and
borrowers were increasingly pursuing private debt offerings, rather
than public offerings that are subject to the Trust Indenture Act.
The Jan. 18 ruling by the Second Circuit should restore confidence
in an issuer's ability to reorganize outside of bankruptcy and in
its secured creditors' ability to exercise remedies without being
accused of violating the TIA.

The decision represents a critical development in the law governing
corporate debt.  It holds that section 316(b) only prohibits
non-consensual, formal amendments to an indenture's "core payment
terms."  This bright-line rule, which conforms to the traditional
understanding of the statute, makes unmistakably clear that
corporate transactions do not violate section 316(b) merely because
of the practical effect they may have on a bondholder's ability to
collect payment.  The decision will affect an array of recent
lawsuits commenced under the TIA, in which bondholders sought to
challenge various types of corporate transactions based on
allegations that the transactions made issuers less financially
capable of paying their debts.

The appeal was argued by Milbank Litigation partner Antonia Apps on
behalf of the Steering Committee for the Ad Hoc Committee of Term
Loan Lenders of Education Management, LLC.  The Milbank team also
included Financial Restructuring partner Gregory Bray, Litigation
partner Aaron Renenger, Litigation special counsel Alexander Lees
and associate James Burke argued on behalf of the Steering
Committee for the Ad Hoc Committee of Term Loan Lenders of
Education Management, LLC.  Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz, argued
on behalf of Education Management.

GRAY TELEVISION: Moody's Rates $656MM 1st Lien Loans 'Ba1'
----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a Ba1 (LGD1) rating to Gray
Television, Inc.'s proposed $100 million senior secured 1st lien
priority revolving credit facility and a Ba2 (LGD 2) to the
company's proposed $556 1st lien term loan B. The proceeds from the
offering will be used to replace the company's existing revolver
and repay its existing term loan. Despite both facilities having a
first lien on the company's assets, the revolving credit facility
is rated one notch higher than the term loan given its first
priority claim. This is in line with the current secured debt
ratings. Moody's expects the transaction to favorably improve the
company's maturity profile by extending the redemption date of the
revolver by two years and the term loan by three. All other ratings
are unchanged and the outlook remains stable.

Assignments:

Issuer: Gray Television, Inc.

-- Senior Secured Priority Revolving Credit Facility, Assigned Ba1
(LGD1)

-- Senior Secured Bank 1st Lien Term Loan B, Assigned Ba2 (LGD2)

RATINGS RATIONALE

Gray's B1 Corporate Family Rating reflects elevated but improved
leverage which Moody's expect could fall to around 5.5x in 2017
(Moody's adjusted debt-to-2 year average EBITDA, pro forma for
pending transactions). Gray is expected to report weaker than
expected results with respect to political revenue in 2016. As
such, leverage will improve more slowly than expected and is likely
remain above Moody's leverage tolerance longer than anticipated --
despite the positive trend. In addition, the company recently
introduced a $75 million share repurchase program. This more
shareholder friendly allocation of capital pressures the credit
rating as the magnitude of annual debt repayment capacity will be
reduced.

Despite the negative pressure, ratings are supported by the
company's long track record of #1 and #2 ranked positions in the
vast majority of its 53 markets (pro forma for acquisitions).
Coupled with low syndication costs and top ranked news programming,
the company generates high EBITDA margins exceeding 38% (including
Moody's standard adjustments). The company also benefits from scale
and diversification (both geographic and network) that are more
indicative of a stronger credit profile. Gray's television stations
and associated digital properties also benefit from its strategy of
operating in collegiate markets or state capitals which generally
have more stability and generate higher demand for political
advertising during election years.

The stable rating outlook reflects Moody's views that organic
growth in core ad sales will be in the flat to low single digit
percentage range over the next 12 months. Pro forma for completed
and announced acquisitions, Moody's estimate leverage (debt-to-2-yr
average EBITDA) will be elevated but improve towards 5.5x
(including Moody's standard adjustments) in 2017, despite
additional debt-financed acquisitions. Moody's also expect high
single digit percentage 2 year average free cash flow-to-debt.

Moody's could consider an upgrade if core revenue and EBITDA track
to expectations and free cash flow is applied to debt repayment
resulting in leverage (Debt-to-2 year average EBITDA) sustained
below 4.0x (Moody's standard adjustments) and coverage (2 year
average free cash flow-to-debt) sustained at least high
single-digit percentage a positive rating action would also be
considered if the company maintains good liquidity and there is a
low probability of near-term event risks and or there are positive
developments in regulation, market position, capital structure, or
key performance measures. In addition, if its credit profile is
improved by one or more of the following factors: increases in
scale, improves its market position or share, diversifies its
business model, or adopts more conservative financial policies.

Gray's ratings could be downgraded if, due to operating performance
falling below expectations as a result of economic weakness or
under performance in one or more key markets, or due to debt
financed acquisitions or shareholder distributions leverage
(debt-to-2 year average EBITDA) is sustained above 5.0x (Moody's
standard adjustments) or coverage (2 year average free cash
flow-to-debt) is sustained below the mid-single digit percentage. A
negative rating action would also be considered if the company
adopted more aggressive financial policies or Moody's anticipate
the possibility of a material and adverse change in scale, market
position or share, regulation, capital structure, key performance
measures, or the operating model.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Global
Broadcast and Advertising Related Industries published in May
2012.

Gray Television, Inc., headquartered in Atlanta, GA, is a
television broadcaster that will be serving 53 mid-sized markets
(ranked #62 to #209) covering roughly 10.1% of US households, pro
forma for announced acquisitions. Network affiliations will include
36 CBS, 27 NBC, 20 ABC, and 14 FOX channels. Following the pending
transactions, the company will operate the #1 or #2 ranked stations
in 52 of 53 markets. Gray is publicly traded and its shares are
widely held with the family and affiliates of the late J. Mack
Robinson collectively owning approximately 12% of common stock. The
dual class equity structure provides these affiliated entities with
roughly 44% of voting control. Moody's project average annual
revenue pro forma for announced transactions will be $850-900
million at the end of 2016.


GRAY TELEVISION: S&P Assigns 'BB' Rating on Proposed $556MM Loan
----------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings assigned its 'BB' issue-level and '1' recovery
ratings to Gray Television Inc.'s proposed $556 million senior
secured term loan B due 2024.  The '1' recovery rating indicates
S&P's expectation for a very high recovery (90%-100%) of principal
in the event of a payment default.

S&P also assigned its 'BB+' issue-level and '1+' recovery ratings
to the company's proposed $100 million senior secured revolving
credit facility due 2022.  The '1+' recovery rating indicates S&P's
expectation for full recovery (100%) of principal in the event of a
payment default.  The proposed credit facilities would extend the
company's debt maturity profile and replace its outstanding $556
million term loan B and $60 million revolver.

S&P's 'B+' corporate credit rating and stable rating outlook on the
company are not affected by the proposed transaction.

This transaction is leverage neutral, with leverage in the mid-5x
area on an average trailing-eight-quarter basis as of Sept. 30,
2016, pro forma for the company's acquisition of television
stations in Green Bay, Wisc. and Davenport, Iowa.

GREAT BASIN: Signs Amendments to Terms of 2016 Notes
----------------------------------------------------
As previously disclosed on the Current Report on Form 8-K filed
with the SEC 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
as set forth in the Schedule of Buyers attached to the 2016 SPA of
$75 million aggregate principal amount of senior secured
convertible notes and related Series H common stock purchase
warrants.

On Jan. 19, 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 19 of the 2016 Notes entered into
separate amendment agreements to amend the terms of the 2016
Notes.

Pursuant to the terms of the Amendment Agreement, Section 8 of the
Notes, which contained the provisions of the 2016 Notes dealing
with installment payments, the Company's ability to elect to
convert installment payments, delivery of pre-installment
conversion shares in relation to converted installment payments and
the ability of Noteholders to accelerate or defer installment
amounts was eliminated and any reference to any defined terms
appearing elsewhere in the 2016 Notes that related solely to
Section 8 and that were not otherwise used in the 2016 Notes were
deleted.  Any pre-installment conversion shares received by any
holder of 2016 Notes with respect to which the related installment
date has not yet occurred as of the date of Amendment Agreement and
which shall not occur as a result of the Amendment Agreement,
immediately reduce the principal amount of the 2016 Notes
outstanding by $0.044 per a pre-installment conversion share so
received.

Additionally, pursuant to the Amendment Agreement Section 3(b)(ii)
of the 2016 Notes which set forth the conversion price at which
optional conversions at the election of the holder of the 2016
Notes could be made was amended to define "Conversion Price," as of
any conversion date or other date of determination, as the lowest
of (x) $2.00 per share, subject to adjustment as provided herein,
(y) 85% of the lowest trading price of the Company's common stock
during the five consecutive trading day period ending and including
the trading day on which the holder delivers a conversion notice to
the Company (such trading prices to be appropriately adjusted for
any share dividend, share split, share combination,
reclassification or similar transaction during such five
consecutive trading day period) and (z) 85% of the Weighted Average
Price (as defined in the 2016 Notes) of the Company's common stock
during the period beginning at 9:30:01 a.m., New York time (or such
other time as the principal market publicly announces is the
official open of trading), and ending at 1:00:00 p.m., New York
time on the delivery date of a conversion notice.

                      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.

Great Basin reported a net loss of $57.9 million in 2015 following
a net loss of $21.7 million in 2014.

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.


GUADALUPE REGIONAL: S&P Affirms 'BB' Rating on 2015 Bonds
---------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings revised its outlook to negative from stable on
the Joint Guadalupe County-City of Seguin Hospital Board of
Managers, Texas' series 2015 revenue refunding and improvement
bonds.  At the same time, S&P affirmed its 'BB' long-term rating on
the bonds.  The board does business as Guadalupe Regional Medical
Center (GRMC).

"The negative outlook revision reflects widening losses at the
hospital's employed physician group, which were worse than budgeted
projections due in part to slower-than-expected practice growth.
The revision also reflects softer volumes and GRMC's highly
elevated leverage," said S&P Global Ratings analyst Patrick Zagar.


The negative outlook reflects S&P's assessment of GRMC's strained
financial profile that offers little financial flexibility due to
the hospital's small size, high debt load, and continued margin
compression.  The outlook also reflects S&P's view of GRMC's
reliance on special funding for profitability and the
below-expectation performance at GRMG.

S&P will lower the rating if GRMC is unable to meet budgeted
targets and improve operating performance or begins to post
operating losses -- as calculated by S&P Global Ratings.  Moreover,
any material deterioration in liquidity -- that S&P believes to be
permanent -- would likely result in a lower rating.

S&P considers a higher rating unlikely given GRMC's high leverage
and thin margins.  S&P could, however, revise the outlook to stable
if the hospital improves financial performance -- especially within
the physician group.  Moreover, S&P would expect to see days' cash
on hand at least hold near current levels.


HERBALIFE INT'L: Moody's Assigns Ba3 Corporate Family Rating
------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a Ba3 Corporate Family Rating
("CFR") and a Ba3-PD Probability of Default Rating to Herbalife
LTD. Herbalife is the parent company of Herbalife International,
Inc., Herbalife International Luxembourg S.a.r.l, HLF Financing
S.a.r.l and HLF Financing US, LLC. At the same time Moody's
assigned Ba1 (LGD2) ratings to the company's proposed first lien
senior secured credit facilities. These include a $1.175 billion
senior secured first lien term loan and a $150 million senior
secured first lien revolving credit facility. The proceeds from the
senior secured term loan will be used for general corporate
purposes, including share repurchases and to pay transaction fees
and expenses. The revolving credit facility will be used for
working capital and general corporate purposes. Moody's also
assigned a Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating at SGL-2. The rating
outlook is stable.

Ratings Assigned:

Herbalife LTD.

Corporate Family Rating at Ba3

Probability of Default at Ba3-PD

Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating at SGL-2

Herbalife LTD., Herbalife International, Inc. and Herbalife
International Luxembourg S.a.r.l (Co-borrowers)

$150 million senior secured first lien revolving credit facility
at Ba1 (LGD 2)

HLF Financing S.a.r.l and HLF Financing US, LLC (Co-borrowers)

$1.175 billion senior secured first lien term loan at Ba1 (LGD 2)

The rating outlook is stable.

RATING RATIONALE

The Ba3 CFR reflects Herbalife's narrow product line combined with
the inherent risks related to multi-level marketing. The company's
global multi-level marketing structure increases the risk of
adverse regulatory and/or legal actions. While the company has
recently settled with the Federal Trade Commission ("FTC"), the
potential for future actions by regulatory authorities can't be
ruled out. In addition, the company is in the midst of a major
transition related to how it runs its business as part of its
agreement with the FTC. Moody's therefore recognizes a high level
of execution risk related to the transition plan.

The rating is also constrained by the high level of debt and the
resulting deterioration in leverage metrics following the proposed
financing transaction. Since management did not specify a clear use
of debt proceeds, Moody's has assumed that a significant amount
will be used for share repurchases. Thus, peak financial leverage
(debt/EBITDA) is about 3.3x at close. That said, Moody's expects
leverage to improve to about 2.8x within 12 months following close
of the transaction, reflecting debt paydown with the company's
significant cash flow. The rating is supported by the company's
good profitability, healthy liquidity, and significant geographic
diversification.

The stable outlook reflects Moody's views that Herbalife's
financial leverage will steadily improve due to debt repayment and
earnings growth. The outlook also reflects Moody's views that the
company faces the risk of operating disruption as it executes its
transition plan, and that it will continue to face the fundamental
risks of the multi-level marketing business model.

The rating could be downgraded if Herbalife's operating performance
deteriorates, or if there is an adverse shift in the industry's
regulatory environment. Ratings could also be downgraded if
debt/EBITDA is sustained above 4.0x, or if liquidity deteriorates.

The rating could be upgraded if the company achieves greater scale,
profitability improves, and Moody's gains greater comfort with the
industry's regulatory environment. The rating could also be
upgraded if Moody's gains greater comfort with the company's
business model, and Herbalife demonstrates that it will maintain a
more conservative financial policy.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Global Packaged
Goods published in June 2013.

Based in Los Angeles, CA, Herbalife LTD. is a leading direct-seller
of weight management products, nutritional supplements and personal
care products intended to support a healthy lifestyle. The company
operates through a multi-level marketing system that consists of
approximately 4.1 million global members across 94 countries.
Herbalife generates roughly $4.5 billion in annual revenues.


HERBALIFE LTD: S&P Assigns 'BB-' CCR, Outlook Stable
----------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings assigned its 'BB-' corporate credit rating to
Torrance, Calif.-based Herbalife Ltd.  The outlook is stable.

Herbalife is planning to syndicate $1,325 million of new credit
facilities to replace its existing bank facility and provide funds
for general corporate purposes.  S&P believes the company will use
the majority of the proceeds for share repurchases.

At the same time, S&P assigned its 'BB+' issue-level ratings to the
company's proposed senior secured $150 million revolver due 2022
and $1,175 million term loan B due 2024.  The '1' recovery rating
indicates S&P's expectation of very high (90% to 100%) recovery in
the event of a payment default.  The issuers of the revolver and
term loans are subsidiaries of Herbalife Ltd.  For purposes of the
ratings, S&P views Herbalife Ltd. and its operating subsidiaries as
a group.  S&P's ratings assume the transaction closes on
substantially the terms presented to S&P.

Herbalife expects to use the proceeds from the debt offering to
repay its existing revolver and for general corporate purposes.
S&P believes the majority of the term loan proceeds in excess of
revolver debt repayment will be used for share repurchases.

The ratings on Herbalife reflects its participation in the highly
competitive weight management and nutritional products industry;
the low barriers to entry in the weight loss sector; its channel,
brand, and product concentration, and potential negative publicity
associated with them; as well as significant legal and regulatory
risk.  It's S&P's opinion that the company could incur operating
difficulties following the settlement with the FTC in July 2016,
specifically difficulty maintaining or attracting sales
representatives because of the company's need to track end-user
sales.  Other key credit factors include its moderate leverage,
good brand recognition, and historically successful business model
that has enabled it to generate good and consistent profitability.
S&P also views the demographics underlying demand for Herbalife's
products as favorable.

Though the company is moderately leveraged and generates good cash
flow, the overall rating is constrained by Herbalife's reputational
risk, as well as its channel, brand, and product concentration.
Herbalife is a network marketer of weight management products,
nutritional supplements, and personal care products.  The company
is in the process of transitioning its business to meet the new FTC
requirements related to its July 2016 settlement.  Herbalife had
been under investigation by the FTC regarding its network marketing
program, the use of testimonies, and the role of expert endorsers.
Although the FTC did not determine the company operated a pyramid
scheme, it fined Herbalife $200 million and implemented rules to
ensure that member compensation is based on end-user sales.

"We believe Herbalife has demonstrated that it is an effective
competitor despite the intense competition from other weight
management products, weight loss programs such as Weight Watchers
International, and free weight apps for mobile devices and wearable
devices," said S&P Global Ratings analyst Diane Shand. "We expect
margins to remain stable of the next few years but sales will slow
as it transitions to new business practices in the U.S. and India
in 2017 and the rest of the world (excluding China) in 2018."

The rating outlook on Herbalife is stable, reflecting the company's
good cash flow generation capabilities, efficient operations, and
S&P's expectation the company will maintain leverage in the high-2x
area to provide cushion from a potential sales decline or negative
currency effects over the next year.  S&P expects the company will
complete share repurchases over the near to medium term, but expect
that these only lead to a modest and temporary increase in
leverage.


HEXION INC: Moody's Lowers Corporate Family Rating to Caa2
----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service lowered the Corporate Family Rating (CFR)
of Hexion Inc. to Caa2 and assigned a Caa1 rating to $460 million
guaranteed senior secured first lien notes due December 2022 to be
issued by Hexion 2 U.S. Finance Corp., a wholly owned unrestricted
subsidiary of Hexion. Additionally, Moody's lowered the ratings on
Hexion's (i) first lien debt to Caa1 from B3; (ii) secured (1.5
lien) notes due 2018 to Caa3 from Caa2; (iii) second lien notes to
Ca from Caa3; and (iv) unsecured notes to C from Ca. Moody's also
lowered Hexion's Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating to SGL-4 from
SGL-3. Hexion's outlook remains negative.

The $460 million proceeds of the new first lien notes will be
placed into escrow, and will be released once Hexion has arranged
for the repayment of the 8.875% secured (1.5 lien) notes due 2018.
The debt will then become an obligation of Hexion Inc.

"While the issuance of additional first lien notes and additional
secured debt will alleviate the company's debt maturity in 2018,
Hexion will have a much more difficult task refinancing its 2020
maturities without a meaningful improvement in profitability,"
stated John Rogers, Senior Vice President at Moody's.

Downgrades:

Issuer: Hexion Inc.

-- Corporate Family Rating, Downgraded to Caa2 from Caa1

RATINGS RATIONALE

Hexion's Caa2 CFR reflects its elevated leverage of over 9 times,
weak cash flow from operations and negative free cash flow.
Specifically, the downgrade reflects Moody's concern that the
refinancing of the 2018 notes will increase debt service costs,
worsen already negative free cash flow and could restrict further
access to the capital markets until profitability and cash flows
improve. Furthermore, greater cash outflows would increase the
reliance on additional asset sales to avoid deterioration in
Hexion's liquidity during 2017.

The Caa1 rating on the new first lien debt reflects its priority
position in the capital structure; it will be pari passu with
Hexion's other $1.87 billion of first lien notes. The first lien
debt has a first lien on all domestic subsidiary assets that are
not part of the ABL priority collateral, and a second lien on the
ABL priority collateral. Hexion's ABL facility will be reduced to
$350 million as recent divestitures have reduced the assets
available to support this facility; this reduction will occur once
the 2018 maturities fall below $100 million.

The most significant hurdle post this refinancing will be the need
to raise an additional $250 million of secured debt to fully repay
the remaining $707 million 8.875% secured (1.5 lien) notes due
2018. Pro forma for the new first lien notes, Hexion's first lien
leverage will be roughly 5.5x based on Moody's standard adjustments
to financial statements (5.3x based on Hexion's pro forma
calculations).

Moody's noted that the conditions for release of funds from escrow
do not require Hexion to issue additional debt, only that it is
able to repay the 8.875% notes. Hence, Hexion could issue less than
$250 million of new 1.5 lien notes, and utilize its available
liquidity to make up any shortfall. The Speculative Grade Liquidity
rating was lowered to SGL-4 from SGL-3 due to the uncertainties
related to this refinancing transaction, the approaching maturity
of the 2018 notes and the projected increase in cash outflows from
operations in 2017. It does not factor in the potential for
additional asset sales, which are likely. Also, given Hexion's
elevated leverage, roughly 9.1x on a pro forma LTM basis ending 30
September 2016 (including Moody's standard adjustments; 8.0x based
on Hexion's pro forma calculations), any unusually restrictive
terms in the new debt or unusually high coupons, could adversely
affect Hexion's liquidity.

In 2017, Hexion's financial performance should improve due to
additional cost reduction efforts, a further rebound in US shale
fracking, a modest increase in Forest Product Resins volumes in
North America and additional earnings from the two Gulf Coast
formaldehyde plants started up in 2016. However, headwinds from a
stronger US dollar could offset some of the increase in
profitability that Moody's has projected for 2017. Moreover, higher
interest costs on the new debt will limit any increase in cash
flows, and free cash flow is likely to remain negative by $50-70
million. Moody's expects that Hexion will continue to divest
non-core assets and take other actions to avoid a material erosion
in liquidity.

Hexion's negative outlook reflects the combination of high
leverage, weak cash flows, negative free cash flow and the
continuing reliance on asset sales to maintain liquidity. The
ratings would be subject to a further downgrade if liquidity
declines below $250 million. Conversely the ratings could be
upgraded if leverage declined below 7.0 times, the company is able
to generate positive free cash flow and it refinances the 2020
maturities.

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

Hexion Inc., headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, is a leading producer
of thermoset resins (epoxy, formaldehyde and acrylic). The company
is also a supplier of specialty resins sold to a diverse customer
base as well as a producer of commodities such as formaldehyde,
bisphenol A (BPA), epichlorohydrin (ECH), versatic acid and related
derivatives. Revenues are approximately $3.6 billion. The majority
owner of Hexion is an affiliate of Apollo Management.


HOLY HILL: Dismissal of Suit vs. 1111 Sunset Affirmed
-----------------------------------------------------
Judge Michael W. Fitzgerald of the United States District Court for
the Central District of California, Western Division, affirmed the
bankruptcy court in case number 16-cv-5739 and denied the petition
for writ of mandamus filed by the appellants, Palisades Capital
Partners LLC and 1111 Sunset Boulevard, LLC, in case number
16-cv-5828.

In 2013, Holy Hill Community Church (HHCC) filed a Complaint and
First Amended Complaint in state court against the appellee 1111
Sunset, LLC and its principal, Yuval Bar-Zemer, as well as several
other defendants.  The suit alleged various causes of action
arising out of amended Reciprocal Use Agreements (RUA) and a loan
agreement it had entered into with defendant Downtown Capital, LLC.
HHCC then filed for bankruptcy, resulting in the adversarial
proceeding.  The suit was removed to the Bankruptcy Court on August
31, 2015.

The appellants filed a Second Amended Complaint on April 18, 2016.
The new complaint incorporated by reference each of HHCC's
allegations from the First Amended Complaint, which alleged that
HHCC's signatories to the amended RUA did not have the authority to
executed the amendment.  On April 20, 2016, the appellants filed a
lis pendens against the appellee's parcel of real property with the
Los Angeles Recorder's Office.  The lis pendens was also recorded
against the easement for reciprocal negative easements over both
the appellants and the appellee's parcels of real property located
at 1111 Sunset Blvd., Los Angeles, CA 90012 pursuant to the terms
of the amended RUA.  The appellants' Second Amended Complaint
included allegations that the easements contained in the amended
RUA are oppressive and unfair to the appellants' parcel previously
purchased from HHCC's Principal, Richard Laski.

The appellee filed a motion to dismiss the Second Amended Complaint
and to expunge the lis pendens against its property.  The
Bankruptcy Court granted the motions on July 15, 2016, concluding
that the appellants did not have standing to raise their claims
and, alternatively, that the claims were barred by res judicata.
The Bankruptcy Court then entered an Expungement Order with respect
to the lis pendens because the causes of action that would have
supported the lis pendens had been dismissed.

The appellants filed notices of appeal as to the dismissal order
and the expungement order, as well as a Petition for Writ of
Mandamus with respect to the expungement order.

Judge Fitzgerald agreed with the Bankruptcy Court that the
appellants lack standing to challenge the authority of the
signatories to enter into the amended RUA.  The judge held that the
purchase of the property and reserved claims did not automatically
entitle the appellants to challenge any matter related to corporate
governance of HHCC.  Likewise, Judge Fitzgerald also held that,
without any legal claims to back it up, the lis pendens was
appropriately expunged.  The judge explained that California law
allows for the expungement of a lis pendens when "the claimant has
not established by a preponderance of the evidence the probable
validity of the real property claim."

The Bankruptcy Court's order, however, mistakenly dismissed claims
against defendants other than the appellees, such as Downtown
Capital, LLC and the Metropolitan Water District of Southern
California, despite the Motion to Dismiss not addressing the claims
against those defendants.  Judge Fitzgerald thus remanded to the
Bankruptcy Court for the limited purpose of correcting this error.

IASIS HEALTHCARE: S&P Affirms 'B' CCR & Revises Outlook to Neg.
---------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings affirmed its 'B' corporate credit rating on
IASIS Healthcare Inc. and revised the rating outlook to negative
from stable.

IASIS Healthcare Corp. underperformed S&P's expectations in 2016,
reflecting higher-than-anticipated costs in the Health Choice
managed care business, including significant losses associated with
the company's Arizona exchange product, which it has since exited.
As a result, leverage is currently over 10x, versus S&P's prior
expectation that leverage would be about 8x at Sept. 30, 2016 (the
company's fiscal year end).  IASIS also needs to refinance the
majority of its capital structure over the next two years, given
the May 2018 maturity date on its term loan and the May 2019
maturity date on the senior unsecured notes.

At the same time, S&P affirmed the 'BB' issue-level rating on the
super-priority revolver, the 'B' issue-level rating the senior
secured term loan, and the 'CCC+' issue-level rating on the senior
unsecured notes.  The recovery ratings on the issue-level debt
remain '1+', '3', and '6', respectively.

"The rating action on IASIS follows another year of disappointing
operating performance, with EBITDA down over 30% on a
year-over-year basis," said S&P Global Ratings credit analyst
Shannan Murphy.  At the same time, the company's capital structure
continues to age, with its senior secured term loan scheduled to
mature in May 2018 and its senior unsecured notes maturing in May
2019.  S&P believes that the company is well-positioned to extend
or refinance the term loan before this debt becomes a current
maturity given low leverage through the senior secured level and
significant cash balances that further support the credit profile.
In addition, S&P believes that the company is likely to materially
improve profitability next year, which should allow it to refinance
the senior notes before they become a current maturity in May 2018.
However, S&P believes that there is very little margin for error
in 2017 given the upcoming maturities.

The 2016 operating underperformance resulted from
higher-than-expected medical loss ratios in the company's Health
Choice managed care business and, to a lesser extent, lower volumes
at the company's acute-care hospital in Houston and costs
associated with the system improvement agreement affecting that
facility. While the Health Choice business is growing rapidly, with
over 40% revenue growth in 2016, this growth has not been
immediately profitable.  Given higher-than-expected pharmaceutical
costs and increased enrollment of very sick individuals, the Health
Choice business generated negative EBITDA in 2016.  IASIS expects
this business to improve in profitability next year, reflecting the
company's exit from the Arizona health exchanges (which accounted
for nearly $20 million of the 2016 losses) and rate increases in
key product lines.

S&P's negative rating outlook on IASIS reflects S&P's view that the
company has little margin for error in 2017, as S&P believes that
the company will need to perform at or above its current base case
in order to successfully refinance its senior notes in 2018 (before
these notes become a current maturity).

S&P could lower the rating if the company is not able to refinance
or extend its term loan prior to May 2017, when this debt would
become a current maturity.  S&P could also lower the rating if the
company's operating performance or changes in credit market
conditions give us less confidence that IASIS will be able to
refinance its unsecured notes as S&P expects.

S&P could revise the outlook to stable if the company completes a
global refinancing of its debt, resulting in an extended maturity
profile.  Under this scenario, S&P would also need to be confident
that the company would be able to generate modest positive free
cash flow, especially in the event that the company's interest
burden is higher as the result of any refinancing.


INDIANTOWN COGENERATION: Moody's Hikes Sub. Bond Rating From Ba1
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service upgraded Indiantown Cogeneration L.P.'s
(Indiantown) first mortgage bonds to Baa1 from Baa3 and its
subordinated bonds to Baa2 from Ba1. Concurrent with this action,
Moody's changed the outlook to stable from positive.

Upgrades:

Issuer: Indiantown Cogeneration, L.P.

-- Subordinate Regular Bond/Debenture, Upgraded to Baa2 from Ba1

-- Senior Secured First Mortgage Bond, Upgraded to Baa1 from Baa3

Outlook Actions:

Issuer: Indiantown Cogeneration, L.P.

-- Outlook, Changed To Stable From Positive

RATINGS RATIONALE

The rating action reflects a significant increase in cash flow
certainty following highly-rated Florida Power and Light Company's
(FPL: A1, stable) purchase of Indiantown earlier this year. As part
of the purchase, FPL plans to reduce the dispatch of the power
project which will strengthen cash flow certainty. In addition to
owning Indiantown, FPL will remain the off-taker under a long-term
power purchase agreement (PPA) through 2025. FPL has received
approval from the Florida Public Service Commission to recover the
purchase price from its ratepayers. Having FPL as both owner and
off-taker coupled with regulatory approval for cost recovery
greatly reduces the probability of a payment default of Indiantown
bonds vis-à-vis the previous ownership and operating structure and
drives the two notch rating upgrade.

As mentioned, FPL plans to reduce Indiantown's capacity factor to
no more than 5% on a prospective basis from approximately 24% in
2015, reducing variable operating expenses and fuel cost
under-recovery that has historically been pronounced when dispatch
levels exceeded 50%. As such, a reduction in Indiantown's dispatch
levels should result in improved debt service coverage ratio while
reducing the potential for variability to its financial profile.
Moody's expect Indiantown's debt service coverage ratio to be in
excess of 1.7 times annually through at least 2020.

The sale has no impact on the various existing structural
protections afforded to bondholders, including debt service reserve
requirements and debt incurrence test and equity distribution test
that remain in force through the life of the debt.

The stable outlook is supported by the continuation of required
payments by FPL under the terms of the PPA bolstered by the change
in the dispatch of the plant.

Factors that Could Lead to a Upgrade

  Given the single asset nature of Indiantown and
  its leverage profile, an upgrade is currently not
  anticipated and may only be triggered by an unexpected
  event, such as FPL providing a guarantee of the
  Indiantown debt.

Factors that Could Lead to a Downgrade

  An unexpected decline in financial performance such
  that annual debt service coverage falls below 1.6
  times on a consistent basis.

Indiantown is a special purpose limited partnership formed to
develop, construct, own and operate a 330-megawatt coal-fired
cogeneration power plant in southwestern Martin County, Florida.

Generation Projects published in December 2012.

plan of reorganization filed by The Intown Companies, Inc. on Jan.

Feb. 16, 2017, is fixed as the last day for filing and serving
written objections to the disclosure statement.

IRON BRIDGE TOOLS: District Ct. to Hold Trial in Suit vs. Cardinal
------------------------------------------------------------------
In the case captioned IRON BRIDGE TOOLS, INC., Plaintiff, v.
CARDINAL GROUP SERVICES, LLC, et al., Defendants, Adv. Pro. No.
16-01541-RBR (S.D. Fla.), Judge Beth Bloom of the United States
District Court for the Southern District of Florida granted the
defendants' motion to withdraw reference in the adversary
proceeding.

Iron Bridge Tools, Inc., commenced the adversary proceeding on
September 30, 2016 against Equity Capital Partners LLC, Jaleel
Lewis, Freeman Perry and other defendants asserting claims for
fraudulent transfer, fraudulent misrepresentation, negligent
misrepresentation, conversion, civil theft, contract implied in
law, and civil conspiracy.

Equity Capital, Lewis and Perry moved the Court to withdraw
reference of the adversary proceeding before the United States
Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Florida.
Essentially, Equity Capital, Lewis and Perry sought withdrawal of
the reference on the bases that the claims asserted against them
are "non-core" and that they have validly demanded a jury trial,
which they do not consent to the Bankruptcy Court conducting.  

In response, Iron Bridge opposed withdrawal of the reference given
that the adversary proceeding is in its early stages, that various
defendants have yet to enter an appearance, and that it is too
early to determine whether Iron Bridge's claims are likely to reach
trial.  In the alternative, should the reference be withdrawn, Iron
Bridge requested that the Court allow the Bankruptcy Court to
conduct all pre-trial matters including discovery and dispositive
motions.

Judge Bloom found that Equity Capital, Lewis and Perry's right to a
jury trial for the non-core claims alleged against them in the
adversary proceeding, coupled with considerations of conserving
judicial resources, constitutes "cause" under 28 U.S.C. section
157(d).  However, the judge will follow suit with "the custom of
this District" and withdraw the bankruptcy referral for the sole
and limited purpose of conducting a trial on all claims asserted
against Equity Capital, Lewis and Perry and thereby allowing the
bankruptcy court to conduct all pre-trial matters, including
discovery and any dispositive motions.  

The bankruptcy case is In re: IRON BRIDGE TOOLS, INC., Chapter 11,

ITUS CORP: Intends to Conduct $12 Million Rights Offering
---------------------------------------------------------
ITUS Corporation announced that its board of directors has approved
a rights offering for ITUS shareholders of up to $12,000,000.  The
rights offering will include the non-transferable right to purchase
one share of ITUS common stock, at a discount, for each share of
ITUS common stock owned by shareholders on the ownership day of
Friday, Feb. 10, 2017.  The discounted price will be the lesser of
(i) 25% discount to the volume weighted average price for ITUS
common stock for the five trading day period through and including
Wednesday, Feb. 15, 2017, the Record Date, subject to ITUS board
approval and (ii) 15% discount to the volume weighted average price
for ITUS common stock for the five trading day period through and
including Friday, March 10, 2017.  ITUS shareholders may elect to
participate in the rights offering during the subscription period,
which will begin on Feb. 17, 2017, and is scheduled to end on March
10, 2017.  The final discounted price will be announced on March
10, 2017, after market close and will be available on the Company's
website at www.ITUScorp.com.

Robert Berman, ITUS's president and CEO stated, "Instead of a more
traditional financing structure where third parties that are new to
the company receive beneficial terms that are dilutive to existing
shareholders, this rights offering allows us to offer the benefit
to our loyal shareholder base who have been supportive of the
company.  Based upon the progress that we have made with Cchek, we
believe our prospects for success have never been higher and our
shareholders are deserving of the opportunity to increase their
participation in the upside of our company as we continue to reach
important milestones towards the regulatory approval and
commercialization of Cchek."    

Proceeds from the rights offering will be used for general working
capital purposes, including the continued development of Cchek, and
to further strengthen the Company's balance sheet by reducing the
Company's debt.  Because the rights are not transferable, the
rights cannot be sold, borrowed, assigned, or traded, and the only
way to obtain the rights is to be a shareholder of record as of
Feb. 15, 2017.

The proposed calendar for the 2017 rights offering is as follows:

Friday, Feb. 10         Ownership Day - last day to purchase ITUS
                        common stock to receive rights.  (must
                        purchase by 4:00 P.M. Eastern Time to
                        become a shareholder on the Record Date)

Monday, Feb. 13         ITUS trades Ex-Right

Wednesday, Feb. 15      Record Date (must own ITUS common stock to
                        be eligible to receive rights) Maximum
                        Price for rights offering is set.

Friday, Feb. 17         Subscription Period begins

Friday, March 10        Subscription Period ends at 5:00 pm
                        eastern time (subject to extension of up
                        to thirty (30) days at the discretion of
                        the Company).

The Company will announce any changes to the above schedule, and
the Company reserves the right to cancel the rights offering at any
time prior to the closing of the rights offering.  ITUS recommends
that current ITUS shareholders consider notifying their broker or
financial advisor about the upcoming rights offering to ensure they
will maximize their ability to participate in the rights offering.

The rights offering will include an over subscription privilege,
which will entitle each rights holder that exercises its basic
subscription privilege the right to purchase additional shares of
ITUS common stock that remain unsubscribed at the expiration of the
rights offering.  Both the basic and over-subscription privileges
are subject to pro ration.

Volume Weighted average pricing, commonly referred to as "VWAP", is
the average share price of a stock weighted against its trading
volume within a particular time frame, which in this instance will
be a trading day.  VWAP will be calculated as the number of shares
bought during a given day multiplied by the share price of each
purchase, the product of which is divided by the total shares
bought.  For the convenience of the Company's shareholders, ITUS
will calculate and make available the applicable VWAP pricing
referred to in the opening paragraph above.

The rights offering will be made pursuant to ITUS's effective shelf
registration statement on Form S-3 (Reg. No. 333-206782) on file
with the Securities and Exchange Commission, and a prospectus
supplement containing information about the company and the rights
offering, which will include step by step, easy to follow, detailed
instructions, will be filed with the SEC prior to the commencement
of the rights offering and will be mailed to each shareholder
holding shares on the record date.  The Company has hired MacKenzie
Partners, Inc. as its information agent to assist shareholders with
the transaction.  Prior to the mailing of the prospectus, general
information about rights offerings and answers to frequently asked
questions will be made available on the Investor section of the
ITUS website, as well as at 1(800)322-2885. Live operator telephone
support to assist shareholders will also be available from 8 am to
9 pm Eastern standard time on weekdays and from 10 am to 6 pm on
Saturdays.

Source Capital will act as dealer manager and placement agent
agreement for the rights offering.  Source Capital Group invites
any broker dealers interested in participating in the rights
offering to contact Source's syndicate department at
ITUS@sourcegrp.com.

concern" qualification on the consolidated financial statements for

history of net losses and net operating cash flow deficits. These
conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to
continue as a going concern.

LAKEWOOD DEVELOPMENT: Unsecureds to be Paid from Real Estate Sale
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Lakewood Development Company, LLC, filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the District of Missouri a disclosure statement
explaining its plan of reorganization, a full-text copy of which is
available at:

           http://bankrupt.com/misc/mowb16-50425-11-39.pdf

The Debtor began its business in 2005 with the purpose of
developing the land that it assembled, including approximately 74
lots and 280 acres of ground in Andrew County, Missouri. The
Members of the Debtor contributed land so that the Debtor could
develop a golf course community and housing around and through the
golf course community. With the depression of the real estate
market in 2007-2008, the Debtor was unable to secure financing to
complete the project.

It is the Debtor's expectation that the Debtor will sell all of its
properties, including the finished residence, the 73 remaining
lots, and the 280 acres of undeveloped property. The Debtor does
not expect to retain ownership of the properties for further
development.

Class 3 under the plan includes all Allowed General Unsecured
Nonpriority Claims. This class includes $1,457,438 of claims,
however, the Debtor would dispute and require strict proof of all
unsecured claims with the exception of Bernice Woodward's claim of
$300,000, which is an Allowed Unsecured Non-Priority Claim. The
Allowed Unsecured Non-priority Creditors shall receive
distributions from the sale of the real estate once Classes 1 and 2
are paid in full.

The Debtor will sell the residence and the undeveloped 73 lots
through a real estate broker/agent and its Members will satisfy the
secured claim of  Don A. Robinson and Mary Robinson through their
acquisition of the land that the purchasing Members contributed to
the Debtor.

LIONBRIDGE TECHNOLOGIES: S&P Assigns 'B' CCR, Outlook Stable
------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings assigned its 'B' corporate credit rating to
Waltham, Mass.-based global language services provider Lionbridge
Technologies Inc.  The rating outlook is stable.

At the same time, S&P assigned its 'B' issue-level rating and '3'
recovery rating to the company's $200 million senior secured
first-lien term loan and $40 million senior secured first-lien
revolving credit facility.  The '3' recovery rating indicates S&P's
expectation for meaningful recovery (50%-70%; lower half of the
range) of principal in the event of a payment default.

S&P also assigned its 'CCC+' issue-level rating and '6' recovery
rating to the company's $85 million senior secured second-lien term
loan.  The '6' recovery rating indicates S&P's expectation for
negligible recovery (0%-10%) of principal in the event of a payment
default.

"Our corporate credit rating on Lionbridge reflects the company's
long-standing customer relationships with large, albeit somewhat
concentrated, blue chip customers in the highly fragmented language
services industry," said S&P Global Ratings' credit analyst Dylan
Singh.

The stable outlook reflects S&P's view that Lionbridge will
generate FOCF to debt of at least 5% and maintain adequate
liquidity with EBITDA covenant cushion of at least 15%.

S&P could lower the corporate credit rating if the company's FOCF
to debt declines to and remains consistently below 5% such that its
cash flow generation is insufficient to meet its mandatory
amortization payments.  S&P could also lower the rating if the
EBITDA covenant cushion declines below 15%.

S&P views an upgrade as unlikely over the next 12 months.  S&P
could raise the rating if Lionbridge is able to keep its adjusted
leverage consistently below 5x.  An upgrade would also be
contingent on evidence of the company implementing a longer-term
financial policy that supports the improved credit measures.



MARIO LEVIS: Court Denies DFC's Bid for Summary Judgment
--------------------------------------------------------
Judge Edward A. Godoy of the United States Bankruptcy Court denied
the motion for summary judgment filed by Doral Financial
Corporation in the case captioned IN RE: MARIO SAMUEL LEVIS,
DEBTOR, CASE NO. 14-02953 EAG (Bankr. D.P.R.).

DFC moved the court for entry of summary judgment denying the
objection to its proof of claim filed by the debtor, Mario Samuel
Levis.

In his objection to DFC's proof of claim, Levis contended that
there is a genuine controversy of fact as to the amounts owed to
DFC, if any, given that the supporting documents submitted with
proof of claim number 8 show that the amount advanced to Levis for
legal fees is actually $23,378,365.90, not $24,440,750.60.  But,
DFC contended that the amount claimed is in fact understated and
that Levis failed to include some entries in his objection that
were included in DFC's proof of claim.

Judge Godoy examined the proof of claim and found that the amount
claimed by DFC in its proof of claim is actually understated to
Levis' benefit.  As such, the judge found that there is no genuine
issue of fact regarding the amount claimed by DFC that would
prevent the court from entering summary judgment.

Levis also argued that he is not liable for the amounts disbursed
by DFC in legal fees alleging that these are contingent,
unliquidated, and disputed.

DFC argued that these issues were already addressed and rejected in
final judgments entered pre-petition by the state court and that
Levis' objection to the proof of claim is barred by the
Rooker-Feldman doctrine and res judicata principles.  DFC asserted
that the Puerto Rico courts already decided that Levis had no right
to continued advancements of attorney fees and disbursements for
the defense of the criminal charges levied against him and
subsequent appeals of his conviction because he had failed to
provide adequate proof that the amounts claimed were reasonable as
required under DFC's by-laws and the undertaking.  DFC further
stated that upon Levis' conviction becoming final, the Puerto Rico
courts also ruled that DFC had the right to demand restitution of
all the amounts advanced to Levis as attorney fees for his
defense.

Judge Godoy, however, found that a plain reading of the judgments
issued by the Puerto Rico Court of First Instance and the Court of
Appeals shows that the Court of First Instance ruled only on DFC's
obligation to advance legal fees to Levis.  The judge explained
that the Rooker-Feldman cannot be applied to the objection to proof
of claim given that the basis for said objection –- whether DFC
is entitled to reimbursement of the monies advanced for legal fees
-- was not the subject of the state court proceeding.

Judge Godoy also held that res judicata cannot be applied to Levis'
objection to DFC's proof of claim for the same reasoning that
Rooker-Feldman does not apply.  The judge explained that  the cause
of action asserted in the state court proceeding is separate and
independent from the one being asserted in the objection to proof
of claim.

Lastly, DFC argued that should the court find that Rooker-Feldman
and res judicata are not applicable, that it acknowledge DFC's
right of payment and determine the amount that should be allowed.
Judge Gordon, however, stated that the court cannot resolve on this
summary-judgment record what amounts, if any, DFC is entitled to
reimbursement from Levis.

MARSHALL NICHOLS: Court Dismisses Bankruptcy Suit
-------------------------------------------------
Judge Frank W. Volk of the United States Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of West Virginia granted the United States
Trustee's motion to dismiss the Chapter 11 case of Marshall Waitman
Nichols, and denied as moot Clinton N. Nichols' motion to lift the
automatic stay on action pending before the Circuit Court of Clay
County and debtor Marshall Waitman Nichols' motion to extend the
exclusivity period.

Judge Volk found that the United States Trustee has established
"cause" to dismiss the case under 11 U.S.C.A. Section 1112(b).

Respecting the objective futility branch, Marshall Nichols'
schedules indicate the necessity of proposing a payout of 100% to
unsecured creditors.  However, Judge Volk noted that Marshall
Nichols has a negative disposable income.  The judge thus found it
unclear how Marshall Nichols would fund a proposed plan with that
statutory payout requirement.  The judge concluded that it is thus
not possible, or at least highly improbable, that Marshall Nichols
will be able to propose a confirmable Chapter 11 plan, and that
there is thus no realistic possibility of an effective
reorganization.

Respecting the subjective branch, Judge Volk was constrained to
conclude the petition was motivated by the improper purposes of (1)
delaying the state court action, (2) shopping for a more favorable
forum, and/or (3) providing leverage to achieve the sought-after
settlement of the dispute between Marshall Nichols and his brother
Clinton.

opinion and order is available at:

MAXUS ENERGY: Court Reduces Ocwen's Mortgage Claim to $10,500
-------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Brendan Linehan Shannon of the United States Bankruptcy Court
for the District of Delaware reduced from $82,043.75 to $10,500
secured claim no. 6-1 asserted by Ocwen Loan Servicing, LLC,
against Ralph J. Givens.

On July 1, 2014 Ocwen caused to be filed in the Givens' case a
Transfer of Claim Other Than for Security indicating that it was
the transferee of the Mortgage Claim from Deutsche Bank National
Trust Company, and that Ocwen had succeeded to the rights and
obligations of the prior lender.  The Mortgage Claim relates to the
Givens' residence.

When presented with the opportunity to sell the residence on
favorable terms in 2015, Givens tried to get a payoff figure from
Ocwen in order to close on the sale.  Ocwen failed to respond to
his repeated inquiries.  Because Ocwen could not provide this basic
information, the proposed real estate sale in 2015 fell through.
Instead, Givens, who was beset with significant health problems in
addition to his financial issues, saw his case languish for well
over another year until a new buyer appeared, for a materially
lower purchase price.

Ocwen asserted that its secured claim is $82,043.75.  From the sale
of the property that closed in September 2016, the Court is holding
approximately $167,000 in its Registry.  Ocwen contended therefore
that it is fully secured and demands payment in full of its secured
claim.

However, following multiple hearings and a trial, the record
developed thereby requires that Ocwen's Mortgage Claim be reduced
by amounts commensurate with the losses and expenses incurred by
the Debtor as a result of Ocwen's conduct

However, Judge Shannon found that the undisputed record developed
at trial warrants reduction of Ocwen's secured claim by $71,543.75.
The judge allowed the Mortgage Claim as a secured claim in the
amount of $10,500, and disallowed the balance of the claim.  The
balance of the proceeds from the sale of the property (after
remittance of $10,500 to Ocwen) remain for distribution in
accordance with the terms of the confirmed plan and applicable
provisions of the Bankruptcy Code.

available at:

The case is In re: RALPH J. GIVENS, Debtor, Case No. 09-14401 (BLS)

MEDICAL SPECIALTIES: S&P Lowers CCR to 'B-' Then Withdraws Rating
-----------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings lowered its corporate credit rating on medical
device supplier Medical Specialties Distributors LLC (MSD) to 'B-'
from 'B'.  The outlook is stable.  "The rating downgrade reflects
MSD's continued challenges to generate positive free operating cash
flow," said S&P Global Ratings credit analyst Adam Dibe.

S&P subsequently withdrew all ratings, including the corporate
credit rating and the issue-level rating on MSD's senior secured
credit facility, at the company's request and following the full
redemption of the company's rated debt.


MEMORIAL PRODUCTION: 100% Recovery for Unsecureds
-------------------------------------------------
Memorial Production Partners LP and affiliates filed with the U.S.

statement for their joint plan of reorganization, dated Jan. 16,
2017.

Class 6, General Unsecured Claims, is unimpaired under the Plan. On
and after the Effective Date, the Debtors or Reorganized Debtors
shall continue to pay or dispute each General Unsecured Claim in
the ordinary course of business as if the Chapter 11 Cases had
never been commenced. Estimated recovery for this class is 100%.

The provisions of the Plan will constitute a good faith compromise
of all Claims, Interests, and controversies relating to the
contractual, legal, and subordination rights that a holder of a
Claim or Interest may have with respect to any Claim or Interest or
any distribution to be made on account of any Claim or Interest.
The entry of the Confirmation Order shall constitute the Bankruptcy
Court's approval of the compromise or settlement of all such
Claims, Interests, and controversies, as well as a finding by the
Bankruptcy Court that such compromise or settlement is in the best
interests of the Debtors, their Estates, and holders of Claims and
Interests and is fair, equitable, and reasonable.

MICROSEMI CORP: S&P Revises Outlook to Pos. & Affirms 'BB-' CCR
---------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said it revised the outlook to positive from
stable and affirmed its 'BB-' corporate credit rating on Aliso
Viejo, Calif.-based Microsemi Corp.  S&P's ratings on the company's
debt instruments remain unchanged.

Microsemi has repaid roughly $700 million of debt and implemented
meaningful cost reductions since its acquisition of PMC-Sierra in
January 2016.

"The outlook revision reflects S&P Global Ratings-adjusted leverage
that has fallen to the 4x area from a peak of around 6x in December
2015 when we evaluated the PMC-Sierra transaction, as a result of
significant debt repayment and meaningful cost reductions, and also
reflects our view of management's commitment to use cash for debt
repayment until gross leverage reaches 3x (3.5x as of Oct. 2 per
management's methodology) and our expectation that these factors
will contribute to further leverage reduction to the 3x area in
fiscal 2017 (ending in September)," said S&P Global Ratings credit
analyst Christian Frank.

The rating incorporates competition from larger analog peers but
also Microsemi's track record of successful acquisition integration
and good cost management, as well as its good market position in
certain niche markets.  The company is repricing its term loan B;
this event did not influence the outlook revision and does not
affect S&P's ratings on the company's instruments.

The positive outlook reflects S&P's view of the company's rapid
debt repayment and good cost controls, which have resulted in
meaningful leverage reduction since the company's acquisition of
PMC Sierra last year.



MISSISSIPPI PHOSPHATES: Refund is Property of Trust, Court Says
---------------------------------------------------------------
In the adversary proceeding captioned MPC LIQUIDATION TRUST,
Plaintiff, v. MISSISSIPPI PHOSPHATES CORPORATION and MISSISSIPPI
POWER COMPANY, Defendants. and MISSISSIPPI POWER COMPANY,
Counter-Plaintiff, v. MPC LIQUIDATION TRUST and THE OFFICIAL,
COMMITTEE OF UNSECURED CREDITORS, Counter-Defendants and
MISSISSIPPI POWER COMPANY, Cross-Plaintiff, v. MISSISSIPPI
PHOSPHATES CORPORATION, Cross-Defendant, Adv. No. 16-06001-KMS
(Bankr. S.D. Miss.), Judge Katharine M. Samson granted the motion
for summary judgment on the Official Committee of Unsecured
Creditors' counterclaim filed by MPC Liquidation Trust, and denied
the motion for summary judgment filed by the Unsecured Creditors'
Committee.

Mississippi Phosphates Corporation ("MS Phosphates") and
Mississippi Power Company ("MS Power"), MS Phosphates's public
utility creditor, entered into an electric services contract on May
1, 2001, which defined the various rates that MS Phosphates would
be charged.  In January of 2013, MS Power sought a rate increase
through the Mississippi Public Service Commission to recover costs
associated with the construction of the Kemper County Integrated
Gasification Combined Cycle Project.  The Commission approved the
rate increase on March 5, 2013, and the increased rate was in
effect for 28 months before the Mississippi Supreme Court reversed
the Commission's decision and ordered a refund.  On August 6, 2015,
the Commission approved MS Power's proposed refund plan.

MS Phosphates filed its petition for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on
October 27, 2014.  On July 30, 2015, the Court approved the
creation of the MPC Liquidation Trust.  On January 5, 2016, the
Trust initiated an adversary proceeding against MS Phosphates and
MS Power.  MS Power answered and brought counterclaims against the
Trust and crossclaims against the Unsecured Creditors' Committee.

The Trust moved separately for summary judgment on the claims by MS
Power and the Committee.  MS Power moved for summary judgment.  The
Committee also moved for summary judgment.

The Trust argued it is entitled to the refund because the refund is
a general intangible, which is among the categories of assets it
purchased from MS Phosphates in an asset purchase agreement.  The
Committee argued that the money belongs to it because the money is
not a refund at all but actually the proceeds of a constitutional
tort.

Judge Samson found that, in overturning the rate increase approved
by the Commission and ordering repayment of the overcharged
amounts, the Mississippi Supreme held that the Commission had
exceeded its statutory authority.  The judge thus found that the
basis of the Mississippi Supreme Court's award of repayment was
statutory, not constitutional, despite the language in the opinion
discussing violations of due process.  The judge explained that
those constitutional findings were not essential to the Mississippi
Supreme Court's judgment.  Having found that the Mississippi
Supreme Court ordered a refund, Judge Samson also found that a
refund is a general intangible, and that the refund is the property
of the Trust under the asset purchase agreement and not the
property of the Committee.

The bankruptcy case is IN RE: MISSISSIPPI PHOSPHATES CORPORATION,
et al, Chapter 11, Debtors, Case No. 14-51667-KMS (Bankr. S.D.
Miss.).

MOTORS LIQUIDATION: Seeks to Reallocate $9.9M Cash to Fund Fees
---------------------------------------------------------------
On Jan. 20, 2017, in accordance with the Second Amended and
Restated Motors Liquidation Company GUC Trust Agreement dated as of
July 30, 2015, and between the parties thereto and the Debtors'
Second Amended Joint Chapter 11 Plan dated as of March 18, 2011,
Wilmington Trust Company, in its capacity as trust administrator
and trustee of the Motors Liquidation Company GUC Trust, filed a
motion with the Bankruptcy Court seeking an order (i) authorizing
the reallocation and use of distributable cash held by the GUC
Trust to fund anticipated administrative and reporting fees, costs
and expenses of the GUC Trust, and (ii) extending the duration of
the GUC Trust for an additional 12 months or through and including
March 31, 2018.

On the effective date of the Plan, the GUC Trust was funded with a
sum of cash that was intended to satisfy the claims resolution and
distribution costs of the GUC Trust as well as compliance costs
associated with the regulatory reporting regime imposed on the GUC
Trust by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.  The funding
amount was based on an estimated three-year life of the GUC Trust.

According to Matthew J. Williams, Esq., at Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher
LLP, one of the attorneys for the Motors Liquidation Company GUC
Trust Administrator, while the GUC Trust has resolved all claims
within its control, external forces have required the GUC Trust to
continue operations long after its anticipated duration.

In addition, he said, while the GUC Trust continues in existence,
it is required to comply with SEC reporting obligations.  The Plan
contemplated that, predominantly for liquidity purposes, interests
in the GUC Trust would be transferable if such transferability was
approved by the SEC.  SEC approval was obtained, but it was
conditioned upon ongoing public reporting (including 10-K, 10-Q and
8-K reporting).  Mr. Williams said satisfying these regulatory
requirements is not without cost.  Among other things, the GUC
Trust must comply with the Sarbanes -- Oxley Act of 2002, which
requires the implementation and maintenance of extensive internal
controls related to financial reporting.

"While the GUC Trust takes steps to minimize costs and expenses, it
nonetheless expended its initial funding long ago, and is required
to request Court permission to reallocate funds that would
otherwise be distributable to beneficiaries ("Distributable Cash")
for administrative and reporting use on an annual basis," Mr.
Williams maintained.  

On four prior occasions, this Court has authorized such
reallocation.  Each time, the GUC Trust has presented an annual
budget to the Court for the use of those funds, and in each of
those instances the GUC Trust has complied with those budgets in an
aggregate sense.

The GUC Trust Administrator is seeking relief from the Bankruptcy
Court to reallocate Distributable Cash, in the aggregate amount
equal to (i) $7,432,000, consisting of $2,970,600 to fund the
calendar year 2017 budget for Administrative Costs, and $4,461,400
to fund the calendar year 2017 budget for Reporting Costs, plus
(ii) $2.5 million in "contingency funds" intended to satisfy budget
overages in the event that the Ignition Switch Litigation is more
active than anticipated and to deal with any other unanticipated
events.

In addition, the GUC Trust requests an order extending the duration
of the GUC Trust for an additional 12 months or through and
including March 31, 2018, to provide sufficient time for the
resolution of the Term Loan Avoidance Action, and to allow the GUC
Trust to wind-up its affairs.

MOUNTAIN GLACIER: Court Grants Summary Judgment v. Nestle Waters
----------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Charles M. Walker of the United States Bankruptcy Court for
the Middle District of Tennesse, Nashville Division, entered
summary judgment in favor of Mountain Glacier, LLC, in the
adversary proceeding captioned Mountain Glacier LLC, Plaintiff, v.
Nestle Waters North America, Inc., Defendant, Adv. No.
3:16-ap-90113 (Bankr. M.D. Tenn.).

Prior to the commencement of this Chapter 11 case, Mountain Glacier
and Nestle were parties to an arbitration styled Nestle Waters
North America, Inc. v. Mountain Glacier LLC, administered by
Judicial Arbitration and Mediation Services in Chicago, Illinois
for which the arbitrator is Hon. Nan Nolan.  The arbitration was
stayed by the filing of Mountain Glacier's Chapter 11 petition.
The arbitration had been fully disclosed on Mountain Glacier's
Schedule B, Personal Property, as a "contingent and unliquidated"
claim.

Following the effective date of its confirmed plan of
reorganization, Mountain Glacier sought to further pursue its
claims against Nestle in the arbitration.  Nestle responded by
requesting dismissal of the arbitration because the order did not
contain language sufficient to preserve the claims in the
arbitration.  Failure to properly preserve the claims would trigger
res judicata and prohibit Mountain Glacier from further pursuing
the arbitration claims.  Mountain Glacier disputed this position
and filed an adversary complaint seeking declaratory judgment
pursuant to 28 U.S.C. section 220.  Mountain Glacier sought a
determination as to whether its confirmed plan of reorganization
preserved its interest in and right to pursue a prepetition claim
against Nestle.

By applying the reasoning and analysis in the cases captioned
Browning v. Levy, 283 F.3d 761 (6th Cir. 2002), and In re Penn
Holdings, Judge Walker held that it is clear that the language of
the plan, along with the disclosure statement, is sufficient to
reserve the arbitration claim to Mountain Glacier, thereby
defeating the res judicata effect of plan confirmation.  Judgment
was entered accordingly in favor of the debtor.

NEW BERN: Court Partly Affirms Weaver Claims Clarification Order
----------------------------------------------------------------
Judge W. Earl Britt of the United States District Court for the
Eastern District of North Carolina, Western Division, affirmed in
part and reversed in part, the bankruptcy court's March 13, 2015
clarification order in the appeals case captioned WATERPROOFING
SPECIALTIES, INC., Appellant/Cross-Appellee, v. WEAVER COOKE
CONSTRUCTION, LLC, Appellee/Cross-Appellant, No. 5:15-CV-145-BR
(E.D.N.C.).

The dispute arose out of a real estate development project, a
luxury condominium complex, in New Bern, North Carolina.  Weaver
Cooke Construction, LLC, served as the project's general contractor
and subcontracted with Waterproofing Specialties, Inc. (WSI).

New Bern Riverfront Development, LLC, the project owner/developer,
filed suit against various parties, including Weaver Cooke and some
subcontractors, based on the allegedly defective construction of
the project.  New Bern later voluntarily dismissed the
subcontractors from the action.

Weaver Cooke asserted third-party claims against numerous
subcontractors, including WSI, for negligence, contractual
indemnity, and breach of express warranty.

WSI subsequently filed a motion for summary judgment on all of
Weaver Cooke's claims.  The bankruptcy court issued two orders on
WSI's motion for summary judgment, but the bankruptcy judge
expressed some uncertainty about whether these two prior orders
resolved all issues between the parties.

WSI then filed a motion "seeking clarification of whether any of
the claims asserted against it by [Weaver Cooke] are still pending,
or whether all such claims were extinguished pursuant to the
court's previously entered summary judgment orders."  The
bankruptcy court issued a clarification order on 13 March 2015,
where it ultimately determined that its prior summary judgment
orders had in fact disposed of all Weaver Cooke's claims relating
to concealed waterproofing.  The bankruptcy court also concluded
that Weaver Cooke's claims for negligence, breach of warranty, and
contractual indemnity based on WSI's expansion joint work remain
and amended its prior orders "to the extent needed to clarify the
remaining claims and issues involving WSI. . . ."  

Both WSI and Weaver Cooke appealed from the clarification order.

WSI contended that the bankruptcy court incorrectly concluded that
Weaver Cooke had alleged claims related to WSI's expansion joint
work and that Weaver Cooke had not waived those claims.  

In the clarification order, the bankruptcy court concluded that
Weaver Cooke's silence in response to WSI's summary judgment
assertions as to what defects were and were not at issue was
justified because WSI did not meet its summary judgment burden in
the first instance.

Judge Britt agreed with WSI's contention that this conclusion was
in error.  The judge stated that by remaining silent, Weaver Cooke
implicitly agreed WSI's expansion joint work was not an issue and
waived any argument to the contrary.  For this reason, Judge Britt
found that the bankruptcy court abused its discretion in amending
its prior orders to clarify that all Weaver Cooke's claims based on
WSI's expansion joint work remain, and the judge reversed the
clarification order to the extent it held those claims remain.

Weaver Cooke's appeal concerned the bankruptcy court's disposition
of Weaver Cooke's claims related to WSI's installation of concealed
waterproofing.  Specifically, Weaver Cooke contended that the
bankruptcy court erroneously failed to address WSI's concealed
waterproofing work on the second floor balconies over habitable
spaces or the pool courtyard post-tension (PT) slab and erred in
its conclusion about WSI's concealed waterproofing work on the pool
deck.  It also argued that the bankruptcy court did not properly
dispose of its indemnity claim to the extent the claim relates to
concealed waterproofing in these three areas of the project.

First, Weaver Cooke points out that the clarification order failed
to address WSI's installation of concealed waterproofing on the
second floor balconies over habitable spaces, i.e., balconies of
units 213, 217, 218, and 220, and on the pool courtyard (terrace)
PT slab and argued that such failure was error.

Judge Britt held that the bankruptcy court is in a better position
to address this issue in the first instance, and therefore, the
judge remanded the issue for the bankruptcy court's consideration.


Regarding the area of the pool deck, Weaver Cooke argued that the
first order addressed only WSI's traffic coating work, not its
installation of concealed waterproofing.  Weaver Coooke contended
that the bankruptcy court erroneously concluded in the
clarification order that the first order found that there were no
genuine issues of material fact as to whether WSI's installation of
concealed waterproofing on the pool deck was defective.  According
to Weaver Cooke, "[n]one of the expert testimony reviewed by the
Bankruptcy Court related to the performance of the concealed
waterproofing on the pool deck."

Judge Britt found that the bankruptcy court's failure to do so was
not error.  The judge pointed out that Weaver Cooke did not rely on
expert testimony as evidence in opposing summary judgment on the
issue of concealed waterproofing on the pool deck.  Judge Britt
declined to consider new evidence or argument raised on appeal, and
held that the bankruptcy court's conclusion regarding WSI's
application of concealed waterproofing on the pool deck stands.

To the extent Weaver Cooke sought indemnification from WSI based on
WSI's work on the pool deck, Judge Britt agreed with the bankruptcy
court that indemnification is not proper.  The bankruptcy court
concluded as a matter of law that WSI's work on the pool deck was
not defective, i.e., it was not negligent.  Therefore, in the
absence of negligence, Judge Britt held that the bankruptcy court
correctly determined that Weaver Cooke's indemnity claim based on
WSI's pool deck work cannot survive.

NEW ENTERPRISE: Posts $21.9 Million Net Income for Third Quarter
----------------------------------------------------------------
New Enterprise Stone & Lime Co., filed its 10-Q quarterly report
for the third quarter ended Nov. 30, 2016, with the Securities and
Exchange Commission on Jan. 17, 2017.

New Enterprise reported net income of $21.87 million on $188.1
million of total revenue for the three months ended Nov. 30, 2016,
compared to net income of $12.24 million on $202.02 million of
total revenue for the three months ended Nov. 30, 2015.

For the nine months ended Nov. 30, 2016, the Company reported net
income of $20.07 million on $541.45 million of total revenue
compared to net income of $21.18 million on $589.30 million of
total revenue for the same period a year ago.

As of Nov. 30, 2016, New Enterprise had $639.4 million in total
assets, $805.01 million in total liabilities and a total deficit of
$165.6 million.

"Our sources of liquidity include cash and cash equivalents, cash
from operations and amounts available for borrowing under the RCA.
As of Nov. 30, 2016 we had no borrowings under the RCA with $72.0
million available compared to no borrowings under the RCA, with
$80.6 million available as of Feb. 29, 2016.  The reduced RCA
availability was attributable to $15.0 million in letters of credit
issued to an insurer for the deductible portion of out liability
coverage, which replaced our cash collateral agreement.

"As of November 30, 2016, we had $4.7 million in cash and cash
equivalents and working capital of $127.7 million compared to $40.6
million in cash and cash equivalents and working capital of $119.3
million as of February 29, 2016.  Cash balances of $4.1 million and
$22.7 million as of November 30, 2016 and February 29, 2016,
respectively, were restricted in certain consolidated subsidiaries
for insurance requirements, escrow requirements related to asset
sale proceeds, and proceeds for the reinvestment in fixed assets.

"Previously, we maintained a cash Collateral Trust Agreement for
our insurance requirements in the amount of $15.5 million.  Given
the nature and seasonality of our business, we typically experience
significant fluctuations in working capital needs and balances
during our peak summer season; these amounts are converted to cash
over the course of our normal operating cycle.

"We believe we have sufficient financial resources, including cash
and cash equivalents, cash from operations and amounts available
for borrowing under the RCA, to fund our business and operations,
including capital expenditures and debt service obligations, beyond
the next twelve months.  Under the New Term Loan, we are subject to
certain affirmative and negative covenants, of which the minimum
EBITDA covenant and the capital expenditure limitation are the
primary financial covenants for the next twelve months.  As of the
end of each fiscal quarter, we are required to have trailing
twelve-month EBITDA in an amount not less than $80 million.  The
sale of PSI will reduce the minimum EBITDA by the lesser of $8.0
million or the EBITDA attributable to PSI for the most recent 12
month period before the sale on October 31, 2016. Our capital
expenditure limitation for fiscal year 2017 adjusted for certain
asset sales in accordance with the New Term Loan and similar
limitations under the RCA, is $40.0 million.  As of November 30,
2016, we were in compliance with all of our covenant requirements
through that date, and expect to remain in compliance for the next
twelve months as applicable.

"In the past, we have failed to meet certain operating performance
measures as well as the financial covenant requirements set forth
under our previous credit facilities, which resulted in the need to
obtain several amendments, and should we fail in the future, we
cannot guarantee that we will be able to obtain such amendments.  A
failure to obtain such amendments could result in an acceleration
of our indebtedness under the New Term Loan and a cross-default
under our other indebtedness, including the Notes. If the lenders
were to accelerate the due dates of our indebtedness or if current
sources of liquidity prove to be insufficient, there can be no
assurance that we would be able to repay or refinance such
indebtedness or to obtain sufficient funding.  This could require
us to restructure or alter our operations and capital structure."

As reported by the TCR on July 27, 2016, Moody's Investors Service
upgraded New Enterprise Stone & Lime Co., Inc.'s Corporate Family
Rating to B3 from Caa1.  The B3 Corporate Family Rating reflects
the company's modest scale, seasonality of its business, limited
geographic diversification, exposure to cyclical construction end
markets, concentration of business with Pennsylvania DOT, and high
financial leverage.

New Enterprise carries a 'B-' corporate credit rating from S&P
Global ratings.


ONEROOF ENERGY: In Default Under Secured Loan Facilities
--------------------------------------------------------
OneRoof Energy, Inc., a residential solar services provider and
wholly-owned subsidiary of OneRoof Energy Group, Inc. ("OneRoof
Energy") on Jan. 20, 2017, disclosed that it is currently in
default under its head office lease for failure to pay rent.  This
default also creates a default under the Company's secured loan
facilities, giving the secured lenders the right to accelerate and
demand immediate payment of all outstanding balances, including
principal and accrued interest, under such loans, totaling
approximately US$100 million in the aggregate.  The Company is in
discussions with its landlord regarding the head office lease
default; however there can be no assurance that any compromise will
be reached, and the Company could be forced to vacate its office
space, in addition to its liability for unpaid rent (which is
currently in excess of US$160,000).  The Company has not received
any notice of default or acceleration from its secured lenders;
however there can be no assurance that the lenders will not cause
such indebtedness to be accelerated and immediately due and payable
in full.  The Company's liabilities under the secured loan
facilities greatly exceeds the value of its assets, and an
acceleration of the secured loans could result in the foreclosure
of all or substantially all of the Company's assets.

In connection with the wind down of its operations, the Company
amended the employment agreements of David Field, president and
chief executive officer, and Dalton Sprinkle, senior vice president
and general counsel.  Mr. Field's employment agreement was amended
to eliminate all bonus potential and reduce the severance
obligations payable to Mr. Field in the event his employment is
terminated without Cause or he resigns for Good Reason (as such
terms are defined in the employment agreement). Previously, the
severance obligations in Mr. Field's employment agreement provided
for the payment in cash of 12 months of salary, plus a portion of
his bonus compensation, plus reimbursement of COBRA health costs
for 12 months (totaling over US$425,000 in the aggregate).  As
revised, Mr. Field will be entitled to a severance payment of
US$266,000 if substantially all of the Company's solar project
assets are subject to definitive sale or refinancing agreements on
or prior to February 28, 2017, or if he is terminated prior to
February 28, 2017 without Cause or resigns for Good Reason (the
"Conditions").  If the Conditions are not satisfied, Mr. Field
would be entitled to severance in the amount of US$133,000.  Mr.
Sprinkle's employment agreement was amended to eliminate all bonus
potential and severance obligations in the event he is terminated
without Cause or resigns for Good Reason (as such terms are defined
in the employment agreement), and to change his salary from
$280,000 per year to a daily rate of US$2,800 per day, which
equates to US$350 per hour.  Previously, the severance obligations
in Mr. Sprinkle's employment agreement provided for the payment in
cash of 12 months of salary, a portion of his bonus compensation,
and reimbursement of COBRA health costs for 12 months (totaling
over US$300,000 in the aggregate).


PEABODY ENERGY: Creditors' Committee Backs Plan of Reorganization
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Peabody Energy Corp. on Jan. 19, 2017, disclosed that the company
has reached agreement by which the Unsecured Creditors' Committee
(UCC) will support the company's proposed plan of reorganization.
The agreement builds on momentum regarding the company's proposed
plan, which has received substantial support in recent weeks by
holders of first lien debt, second lien notes and senior unsecured
notes.

"We are pleased to have reached agreement with the UCC and are
encouraged by the support we have received," said Peabody Energy
President and Chief Executive Officer Glenn Kellow.  "We look
forward to continuing to advance a plan that we believe maximizes
the value of the enterprise."

The plan of reorganization remains subject to confirmation by the
court, and the related disclosure statement is subject to approval
by the court.  This press release is not intended as solicitation
for a vote on the plan.  The full terms of the plan of
reorganization and disclosure statement, as well as the related
motions and other documentation relating to the Chapter 11 cases,
are available online at http://www.kccllc.net/Peabody.

As of the Petition Date, PEC has approximately $4.3 billion in

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.


PIONEER ENERGY: BlackRock Reports 11.8% Equity Stake as of Dec. 31

BlackRock, Inc., disclosed in an amended Schedule 13G filed with
the Securities and Exchange Commission that as of Dec. 31, 2016, it
beneficially owns 9,066,556 shares of common stock of Pioneer
Energy Services Corp. representing 11.8 percent of the shares
outstanding.  A full-text copy of the regulatory filing is

oil and gas exploration and production companies in the United
States and internationally in Colombia.  The Company also provides
two of its services (coiled tubing and wireline services) offshore

Pioneer Energy reported a net loss of $155 million in 2015
following a net loss of $38 million in 2014.  As of Sept. 30, 2016,
Pioneer Energy had $723.0 million in total assets, $471.7 million
in total liabilities and $251.1 million in total shareholders'

                           *    *    *

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

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

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

PUERTO RICO: Gov. Cites "Sharp Contrast" With Island's Overseer
---------------------------------------------------------------
The American Bankruptcy Institute, citing Nick Brown of Reuters,
reported that Puerto Rico Governor Ricardo Rossello criticized a
set of recommendations by the federal board in charge of managing
the U.S. territory's finances, signaling a potential power struggle
between the government and the board on how to pull the island out
of economic crisis.

According to the report, in a letter to the board, Gov. Rossello
said that while he supports reducing government spending, he would
not focus on layoffs as a primary means of saving money.

He also took a more moderate stance on reducing repayments to
holders of the island's $70 billion in debt, saying his
administration had a "fundamental willingness to pay based upon
available resources," the report related.

The board, in a letter to the governor, said the island may have
only $800 million available annually for debt service, just 21
percent of what it owes, the report further related.

The board's letter had called for Puerto Rico to save more than
$4.5 billion a year through a mix of savings and new revenues,
including by "right-sizing government" through a 30 percent
reduction in payroll and other means, the report said.

The Fiscal Agency and Financial Advisory Authority of Puerto Rico
has selected Dentons US as its legal advisor on all aspects of its
restructuring and revitalization efforts, including development
and
implementation of the Fiscal Plan, restructuring and renegotiation
of municipal bond debt, communications with creditors and with the
PROMESA Oversight Board, among others.

The Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America reported on June 15,
2016, that the U.S. Supreme Court struck down a Puerto Rico law
that would have let its public utilities restructure their debt
over the objection of creditors leaving it to Congress to help the
island resolve its fiscal crisis.  Siding with bondholders
challenging the law, the court ruled 5-2 that the measure was
barred under federal bankruptcy law.

Puerto Rico is struggling with $72 billion in debt and has argued
that it needs to restructure at least some of it under Chapter 9,
the part of the bankruptcy code for insolvent local governments.
But Puerto Rico is not permitted to do so, because Chapter 9
specifically excludes it.

The federal law, Justice Thomas wrote, "bars Puerto Rico from
enacting its own municipal bankruptcy scheme to restructure the
debt of its insolvent public utilities." Chief Justice John G.
Roberts Jr. and Justices Anthony M. Kennedy, Stephen G. Breyer and
Elena Kagan joined him.

Consequently, Puerto Rico opted to default on $911 million in
constitutionally guaranteed debt, or roughly half of the $2
billion in principal and interest that came due July 1, EFE News
reported.

The reported further noted that Puerto Rico enacted a debt
moratorium due to liquidity restraints -- a move that coincided
with a new U.S. law signed by President Obama that installs a
financial control board to restructure the island's debt and
provides a retroactive stay on lawsuits by bondholders.

On July 11, 2016, the TCR-LA reported that S&P Global Ratings
downgraded the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico's general obligation
secured debt to 'D' (default) from 'CC' following the
commonwealth's default.

On July 7, 2016, Fitch Ratings has downgraded the Commonwealth of
Puerto Rico's Long-Term Issuer Default Rating (IDR) to 'RD' from
'C' and general obligation (GO) bond rating to 'D' from 'C'
following the payment default on certain GO bonds on July 1, 2016.

             Two-Year Financial and Operational Plan

Note: a detailed breakdown of the two-year financial and
operational plan can be found in the company's January 2017
corporate presentation on slides 5 through 10.  In addition, all
2017 and 2018 forecasts, projections and comparisons to prior
periods do not include any contribution from assets divested or any
future impacts related to adjustments to the capital structure.

               2017 Financial and Operational Plan

Capital Expenditures and Drilling Activity

Rex Energy's net operational capital expenditures for 2017 are
expected to be in the range of $70.0 - $80.0 million, with
approximately 80% allocated to the development of the Marcellus and
Upper Devonian Burkett shales in the Moraine East and Legacy Butler
Operated Areas.  Approximately 20% is allocated to the development
of the Utica Shale in the Warrior North Area.  The 2017 capital
budget is expected to be funded through cash flow from operations
and asset divestitures.

The Company plans to run one drilling rig in its Butler Operated
and Ohio Utica Warrior North Area and expects to drill 21.0 gross
(11.1 net) wells, complete 26.0 gross (12.7 net) wells and place
into sales 23.0 gross (11.2 net) wells.  Of the 23.0 gross (11.2
net) wells scheduled to be placed into sales in 2017, only four
gross (1.4 net) wells will be placed into sales in the first half
of 2017, with the remaining 19.0 gross (9.8 net) wells placed into
sales in the second half of 2017.  The 2017 development plan in the
Butler Operated and Warrior North Area is aligned with the
company's HBP/HBO goals for 2017; upon completion of the 2017
development program, the majority of the company's drillable
acreage will be held by production.

Production Guidance

Average daily production is estimated to be in the range of 194.0 -
204.0 MMcfe/d, representing year-over-year growth of approximately
5% to 10% as compared to the Company's full-year 2016 production
guidance.  With only four gross (1.4 net) wells expected to be
placed into sales in the first half of 2017, the majority of the
Company's production growth will occur in the second half of 2017.
Liquids production is expected to account for approximately 38% of
2017 production at the midpoint of guidance.  In addition, 2017
exit rate production (December 2017 vs. December 2016) is estimated
to increase approximately 15% - 20%.  Second half production growth
will be driven by pipeline construction into the eastern portion of
the company's Moraine East Area.

Price Realizations

In 2017, Rex Energy will realize a full year of Gulf Coast
transport and the related positive impact this transportation will
have on its natural gas price differentials.  The Company expects
to sell approximately 50% of its natural gas volumes to the Gulf
Coast with the remaining volumes sold into local markets at which
the company has approximately 60% of the basis differential hedged
at a premium to the current spot price.  Overall natural gas
differentials are expected to improve by approximately 40% over
full-year 2016 basis differentials to ($0.53) - ($0.63) off of
NYMEX.  In addition, with the improvement in local differentials
for C3+ NGLs, the company expects C3+ NGL pricing to be
approximately 43% - 48% of WTI pricing.

                2018 Financial and Operational Plan

Capital Expenditures and Drilling Activity

Full-year 2018 net operational capital expenditures are expected to
be in the range of $20.0 - $40.0 million, with approximately 100%
of the net operational capital expenditures allocated to the
development of the Marcellus and Upper Devonian shales in the
Moraine East and Legacy Butler Operated Areas.  The 2018 capital
budget is expected to be funded through cash flow from operations
and cash on the balance sheet.

The Company plans to run one drilling rig in its Butler Operated
Area and expects to drill four gross (2.8 net) wells, complete six
gross (3.8 net) wells and place into sales nine gross (5.3 net)
wells.

Production Guidance

For full-year 2018, Rex Energy estimates that average daily
production will be in the range of 223.0 - 233.0 MMcfe/d,
representing 15% - 20% year-over-year growth as compared to the
midpoint of 2017 production guidance.  Liquids production is
expected to account for approximately 45% of the Company's 2018
production at the midpoint of guidance.

Price Realizations / Per Unit LOE

For 2018, the company expects approximately 50% of the of its
natural gas volumes to be sold into the Gulf Coast market and
expects it overall natural gas basis differentials to be in the
range of ($0.48) - ($0.58) off of NYMEX.  In addition, C3+ NGL
pricing is expected to be approximately 45% - 50% of WTI pricing.
Per unit LOE is expected to decrease by approximately 5% - 10%
compared to full-year 2017 due to an overall reduction in
reservation fees due to increased production during the year.

Leverage Ratio

With the plan to fund 2017 and 2018 net operational capital
expenditures from cash flow from operations and asset divestitures,
the company expects to grow its EBITDAX by approximately 80% - 85%
in 2017 and 10% - 15% in 2018.  The targeted increase in EBITDAX
assumes current strip pricing as of Dec. 31, 2016, and is driven by
expected production growth of 5% - 10% in 2017 and 15% - 20% in
2018 combined with hedging at favorable pricing.  With these
factors, the company anticipates reducing its debt-to-EBITDAX ratio
by approximately 35% - 40% in 2017 and 15% - 20% in 2018, on a
year-over-year basis and a total reduction of approximately 50%
from year-end 2016 to year-end 2018.

"Rex Energy's two-year plan is a clear, transparent road map for
our future operation strategy.  We designed the plan to enhance
cash flow, provide strong production growth, and significantly
reduce the company's overall debt metrics - all while living within
cash flow," said Tom Stabley, president and CEO of Rex Energy.
"The plan builds on the success of our 2016 initiatives; with the
quality of our acreage, and strong support from our partners and
dedicated employees, we're confident we can deliver."

                  Joint Development Agreement

Rex Energy's joint development partner, Benefit Street Partners
L.L.C. has elected into an additional five wells in the 2017
development program.  BSP's additional capital commitment for the
five wells is approximately $15.8 million, increasing BSP's total
capital commitment to date from $120.1 million to $135.9 million.
BSP retains the option to participate in six additional wells which
would increase its total capital commitment to approximately $160.0
million.

"The increased capital commitment from BSP, together with proceeds
from the recently announced Warrior South sale, will provide Rex
Energy with an additional $46 million of liquidity to begin 2017,"
said Tom Stabley, president and CEO of Rex Energy.  "The added
liquidity further enables us to execute our two-year plan for the
company."

                BP Energy Co. Added to Bank Group

Rex Energy recently added BP Energy Co., an indirect, wholly-owned
subsidiary of BP plc (NYSE: BP), as a participant in its senior
secured credit facility.  The addition of BP Energy Co. allows the
company to expand its hedging program.

"We are excited about our new relationship with BP and the
opportunity to expand on our already robust hedge portfolio," said
Tom Stabley.  "In addition, we look forward to the energy marketing
and supply solutions that BP can bring to Rex Energy."

                         Hedge Portfolio

The Company continues to add to its hedge portfolio for 2017 and
2018 at prices that provide additional certainty regarding its
expected cash flows.  For 2017, the company now has approximately
80% of its natural gas production hedged with an average floor
price of $3.02 and 72% of its NGL and condensate production hedged
with an average floor price for C3+ NGLs of $24.04.  For 2018,
approximately 30% of natural gas production is hedged with an
average floor price of $3.04 and 31% of NGL and condensate
production hedged with an average floor price for C3+ NGLs of
$27.27.  With a high percentage of 2017 production hedged at
favorable pricing, the company has provided further certainty for
its expected cash flows to execute on its capital plans.

As reported by the TCR on April 6, 2016, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services said that it lowered its corporate credit rating on Rex
Energy Corp. to 'SD' from 'CC'.  "The downgrade follows Rex's
announcement that it has closed an exchange offer to existing
holders of its 8.875% and 6.25% senior unsecured notes for a new
issue of 8% senior secured second-lien notes due 2020 (not rated)
and shares of common equity," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst
Aaron McLean.

downgraded REX Energy's Corporate Family Rating to 'Ca' from
'Caa3', its Probability of Default Rating to Ca-PD/LD from Caa3-PD,
its senior unsecured notes to 'C' from 'Ca'.  "The downgrade
reflects the poor overall recovery prospects as indicated by REXX's
PV-10 value.  The negative outlook is driven by the weak commodity
price environment, specifically in natural gas pricing, which could
further erode REXX's recovery value,"
commented Sreedhar Kona, Moody's senior analyst.

ROCKFORD INSURANCE: Feb. 15 Disclosure Statement Hearing
--------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Scott W. Dales of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Western District of Michigan will convene a hearing on Feb. 15,
2017 at 10:00 a.m. to consider approval of the disclosure statement
and plan of reorganization filed by Rockford Insurance Agency, LLC
and New York Private Insurance Agency, LLC.

Objections to the disclosure statement must be filed and served at
least two days prior to the hearing.

             About Rockford Insurance Agency

Rockford Insurance Agency LLC and New York Private Insurance
Agency, LLC sought protection under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy
Code (Bankr. W.D. Mich. Lead Case No. 16-01034) on March 1,
2016. 
The petitions were signed by Guy L. Hiestand III, member.  

The cases are assigned to Judge Scott W. Dales.

At the time of the filing, Rockford estimated assets and
liabilities of less than $1 million.  NYPI estimated assets of
less
than $500,000 and liabilities of $1 million to $10 million.


RUBY TUESDAY: S&P Revises Outlook to Neg. & Affirms 'B-' CCR
------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings revised its outlook on the Maryville,
Tenn.-based restaurant Ruby Tuesday Inc. to negative from stable.
At the same time, S&P affirmed all ratings, including the 'B-'
corporate credit rating.

"The negative outlook revision reflects the company's weakened
liquidity and its recent covenant breach, resulting from poor
operating performance and negative free operating cash flow.  As of
the fiscal second-quarter ended November 2016, Ruby Tuesday had
breached its fixed-charge financial maintenance covenant test and
subsequently received a waiver from its bankers extending a grace
period through Jan. 31, 2017, to provide time to negotiate an
amendment," said credit analyst Mathew Christy.  "Although we
believe the company will likely receive an amendment to its credit
agreement, we also believe the company's operations will remain
challenged.  In addition, the reset levels to the fixed-charge
financial maintenance covenants are uncertain and covenant headroom
could remain limited."

The negative outlook reflects S&P's expectation for continued weak
liquidity and operating performance.  Although S&P believes the
company will likely receive an amendment to its credit agreement,
S&P also believes the company's operations will remain challenged.
In addition, the reset levels to the fixed-charge financial
maintenance covenants are uncertain and covenant headroom could
remain limited.  In addition, S&P also believes Ruby Tuesday's
profitability will continue to be pressured by sales deleveraging
from lower customer traffic, increased promotions and higher costs,
resulting in modest negative free operating cash flow in the next
12 months.

S&P could lower the ratings if the company is unable to adequately
address the tightening covenant cushion under its credit
facilities.  S&P could also lower the ratings if it believes
operations will weaken further, resulting in persistence meaningful
negative free operating cash flow and a further deterioration in
liquidity, leading S&P to believe that the company's capital
structure was unsustainable.

S&P could revise its outlook back to stable if the company achieves
a sustained improvement in operating performance with positive
comparable restaurant sales growth and improved EBITDA margins,
leading to an increased covenant cushion of at least 15% and
consistently positive free operating cash flow.  This scenario
could occur if EBITDA improved more than 12% versus S&P's
projections, commensurate with leverage in the mid- to high-5x
range.


S&P ENTERPRISES: Agent OK'd to Clawback $152K from Amandavia
------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Katharine M. Samson of the granted the motion for summary
judgment filed by H. Kenneth Lefoldt, Jr. in the adversary
proceeding captioned H. KENNETH LEFOLDT, JR., Litigation Agent for
S&P Enterprises, LLC Plaintiff, v. DIPAK K. AMANDAVIA, Defendant,
Adv. No. 15-05004-KMS (Bankr. S.D. Miss.).

The debtor, S&P Enterprises, LLC, has three members, who each owned
one third of the company: Kishan Shah, Dipak Amandavia, and Jayesh
Patel.  On October 22, 2013, the Court granted S&P's motion to hire
H. Kenneth Lefoldt, Jr., and his firm as accountants for the
debtor.  On June 23, 2014, the Court confirmed S&P's Chapter 11
Plan which called for each member to contribute $300,000.00 to S&P
to maintain their interest and in settlement of potential avoidance
actions.  The Plan also named Lefoldt as litigation agent and
granted him "the exclusive right and authority to pursue on behalf
of the Debtor any applicable causes of action against a Member who
does not settle."

Neither Amandavia nor Patel paid the $300,000.00, and their
membership interests were cancelled through the Plan.  Lefoldt, as
litigation agent, filed adversary complaints against Amandavia and
Patel on January 22, 2015.

As against Amandavia, Lefoldt brought a claim to avoid the transfer
of $152,294.00 in a series of transactions in the two years
preceding S&P's bankruptcy filing.  On October 7, 2016, Lefoldt
filed a motion for summary judgment.

Based on admissions, Judge Samson held that it is evident that the
withdrawals of funds by Amandavia qualify as fraudulent transfers
under the Bankruptcy Code that may be avoided.

The bankruptcy case is IN RE: S&P ENTERPRISES, LLC d/b/a Regency
Inn & Suites, Chapter 11, Debtor, No. 13-51807-KMS (Bankr. S.D.
Miss.).

5ABK44302CB120371 ("Schedule 2 Equipment") to be paid in 48 monthly
installments of $26,524 each.  As per paragraph no. 6(a) of
Schedule 2, FNC was granted a first priority security interest in
the Schedule 2 Equipment.

Subsequently, FNC assigned and transferred its interest in and to
the Schedule 2 Loan Agreement, including the security agreement, to
Pacific Western ("Schedule 2 Assignment") and notified the Debtor
of the Schedule 2 Assignment by Notice and Acknowledgement of
Assignment dated June 7, 2012 and directed Debtor, among other
things, to pay Pacific Western all amounts due under the Schedule 2
Loan Agreement as more specifically set forth therein.

Pacific Western holds a valid and first priority security interest
in the IDMS/Schedule 2 Equipment by the Schedule 2 Assignment and
by financing statements recorded with the Caddo Parish Clerk of
Court under Registry Nos. 09-1181362 and 09-1184418 and with the
Department of Motor Vehicles, which is reflected on the Certificate
of Title to the Schedule 2 Equipment.

In its amended schedules in the case, the Debtor recites that
Pacific Western holds a claim secured by the Schedule 2 Equipment
totaling $101,809 as of the Petition Date, together with
post-petition interest, reasonable attorney fees and other costs.
In these amended schedules, the Debtor values the Schedule 2
Equipment at $117,000 as of Nov. 6, 2016.

Pursuant to the Master Lease and Equipment Schedule No. 10 thereto,
dated as of Feb. 14, 2013 ("Schedule 10 Loan Agreement"), FNC also
financed the Debtor's purchase of a 2013 HP Pump Unit 2500, SMP
QW52500LW Super Duty Quintuplex Pump, Trailer: Dragon Products
Center Rail Skeletal Chassis, Caterpillar 3512 SCAC Diesel Engine
No. R1S00808, Caterpillar TH55-E70 Petroleum Transmission No.
PCJ02017, Power End No. 74337, Fluid End No. DPQX4.00-272, and
Horizontal Cooling Package Radiator No. 00053709 ("Collateral") to
be paid in 48 monthly installments of $21,348 each.  As per
paragraph no. 6(a) of Schedule 10, FNC was granted a first priority
security interest in the Schedule 10 Equipment.

Subsequently, FNC assigned and transferred its interest in and to
the Schedule 10 Loan Agreement, including the security agreement,
to Pacific Western ("Schedule 10 Assignment") and notified Debtor
of the Schedule 10 Assignment by Notice and Acknowledgement of
Assignment dated Feb. 26, 2013 and directed the Debtor, among other
things, to pay Pacific Western all amounts due under the Schedule
10 Loan Agreement as more specifically set forth therein.

Pacific Western holds a valid and first priority security interest
in the Schedule 10 Equipment by the Schedule 10 Assignment and by
financing statements recorded with the Caddo Parish Clerk of Court
under Registry Nos. 09-1200535 and 09-1203529 and with the
Department of Motor Vehicles, which is reflected on the Certificate
of Title to the Schedule 10 Equipment.

In the amended schedules, the Debtor also recites that Pacific
Western holds a separate claim secured by the Schedule 10 Equipment
totaling $264,716 as of the Petition Date, together with
post-petition interest, reasonable attorney fees and other costs.
In these amended schedules, the Debtor values the Schedule 10
Equipment at $189,250 as of Nov. 6, 2016.

Pacific Western alleges that its total claim which is secured by
the Collateral and is in the amount of $364,599 as of the Petition
Date, with interest, fees, costs and attorneys' fees continuing to
accrue.  The Debtor does not dispute that amount.

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

         http://bankrupt.com/misc/S-3_Pump_349_Sales.pdf

The Debtor has concluded that the estate does not have a long-term
need for the Collateral, that the Collateral is not necessary for
an effective reorganization, and that it is in the best interests
of the estate for the Debtor to sell the Collateral pursuant to 11
U.S.C. Section 363(b).  The Debtor and Pacific Western have agreed
that the Debtor will sell the Collateral to Pacific Western free
and clear of all liens and encumbrances pursuant to 11 U.S.C.
Section 363(b)(1) in full satisfaction of Pacific Western's claims
against the Debtor and in exchange for a credit pursuant to 11
U.S.C. Section 363(k).

The Debtor has determined that no other person or entity has any
lien or security interest in the Collateral.

The Debtor seeks an Order authorizing it to sell the Collateral to
Pacific Western in exchange for Pacific Western's credit bid in the
amount of $364,599, plus all accrued post-petition interest,
attorney fees and other costs in full and final satisfaction of
Pacific Western's claim against the Debtor's estate.  Pacific
Western consents to the sale of the Collateral to it in full
satisfaction of its claim in exchange for Pacific Western's credit
bid in the amount of $364,599 plus all accrued postpetition
interest, attorney fees and other costs.   Accordingly, the Debtor
requests that the sale of the Property be made free and clear of
all liens.

Considering the good faith of Pacific Western and the
reasonableness of the credit bid, the Debtor asks that the Court
finds that good cause exists to authorize the consummation of the
sale of the Collateral without subjecting the Order to a stay of
execution, as permitted under Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure
7062 and 6004(h).

SANDIA RESORTS: Ch. 11 Case Converted to Ch. 7
----------------------------------------------
Judge Robert H. Jacobvitz of the United States Bankruptcy Court for
the District of New Mexico granted the United States Trustee's
amended motion to convert to Chapter 7 the Chapter 11 case
captioned In re: SANDIA RESORTS, INC., Debtor, No. 11-15-11532 JA
(Bankr. D.N.M.).

The debtor, Sandia Resorts, Inc., and creditor NCG, LLC filed
competing plans in the heavily litigated chapter 11 case.  Despite
numerous amendments and vigorous litigation, neither plan proponent
was able satisfy Bankruptcy Code section 1129(a)(10)'s confirmation
requirement for an impaired, accepting class of claims.  Both
Sandia and NCG stipulated that neither are able to confirm a plan
in the chapter 11 case.  

In light of this fact, the UST filed a motion pursuant to 11 U.S.C.
section 1112 requesting that the Court either dismiss the chapter
11 case or convert it to a case under chapter 7.  The UST argued
that cause exists under section 1112 for the Court to either
convert or dismiss the case and that dismissal was in the best
interest of the estate and its creditors.  Sandia concurred with
the UST on both issues.  NCG responded to the motion also
stipulating that cause exists for the Court to either convert or
dismiss the case, but arguing that conversion, not dismissal, is in
the best interest of the estate and its creditors.  In its closing
argument, the UST stated that based on the amendments to NCG's
offer to purchase assets of the estate, the UST does not object to
the case being converted to a chapter 7 case.

Considering the interest of all parties in interest as a whole,
Judge Jacobvitz determined that conversion of the Chapter 11 case
to a case under chapter 7 is in the best interest of the estate and
its creditors.

NCG's offer weighed heavily in Judge Jacobvitz's evaluation of
whether conversion or dismissal is in the best interest of the
estate and creditors.  The judge found that the offer gives a
Chapter 7 Trustee an option (not available after dismissal) that
could make the case administratively solvent, pay all tax claims,
secured claims (excluding NCG's claim), and priority unsecured
claims in full, and leave funds to make a distribution of 20% or
more on nonpriority unsecured claims.  Dismissal provides no safety
net.

opinion is available at https://is.gd/Z5QfJC from Leagle.com.

SEARS HOLDINGS: Moody's Lowers Corporate Family Rating to Caa2
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded Sears Holdings Corporate
Family Rating to Caa2 from Caa1. Actions on other rated debt
instruments are detailed below. The rating outlook was changed from
negative to stable. The downgrade reflects the accelerating
negative sales performance of Sears' business with comparable sales
falling 12-13% for holiday period compared to the prior year.
"Although Sears has been able to fund its continued cash shortfalls
through planned asset monetization, and additional financings, a
meaningful business turnaround in fiscal 2017 is critical given the
continued reduction of its asset base", said Vice President,
Christina Boni. "We expect operating cash flow to approach a
disappointing loss of $1.5 billion for fiscal 2016."

Downgrades:

Issuer: Sears Holdings Corp.

-- Probability of Default Rating, Downgraded to Caa2-PD from
Caa1-PD

-- Corporate Family Rating, Downgraded to Caa2 from Caa1

-- Multiple Seniority Shelf, Downgraded to (P)Ca from (P)Caa3

-- 1st Lien Senior Secured Term Loan, Downgraded to B1(LGD2) from
Ba3(LGD2)

-- Senior Secured Term Loan, Downgraded to B1(LGD2) from
Ba3(LGD2)

-- Senior Secured Notes, Downgraded to Caa2(LGD4) from Caa1(LGD3)

-- Senior Unsecured Notes, Downgraded to Ca(LGD6) from Caa3(LGD6)

Issuer: Sears Roebuck Acceptance Corp.

-- Senior Unsecured Regular Bond/Debenture, Downgraded to
Caa3(LGD5) from Caa2(LGD5)

Affirmations:

Issuer: Sears Holdings Corp.

-- Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating, Affirmed SGL-3

Issuer: Sears Roebuck Acceptance Corp.

-- Commercial Paper, Affirmed NP

Outlook Actions:

Issuer: Sears Holdings Corp.

-- Outlook, Changed To Stable From Negative

Issuer: Sears Roebuck Acceptance Corp.

-- Outlook, Changed To No Outlook From Negative

RATINGS RATIONALE

Sears' Caa2 rating reflects the company's sizable operating losses
- Domestic Adjusted EBITDA (as defined by Sears) was a loss of $884
million in the latest 12 month period. While the company continues
to take substantial steps to improve its liquidity profile it
remains uncertain if its operational strategies will be sufficient
for its cash burn to approach break-even levels. The Caa2 ratings
also reflects the recent announcements to increase liquidity
through $1 billion in asset divestitures, a $500 million real
estate loan facility, and the sale of its Craftsman brand (for a
value of approximately $900 million), which when completed will
result in a material reduction in its asset base. While Sears will
continue to have sizable assets post its plans, its debts are
significant with approximately $4.3 billion of funded debt as well
as unfunded pension and postretirement obligations of approximately
$2 billion. The ratings also reflect Moody's views on the
uncertainty of the viability of the Kmart franchise in particular
given its meaningful market share erosion. The company's announced
closure of 150 stores (108 Kmart stores and 42 Sears) stores is an
effort to reduce store space and increase productivity.

Although Sears can continue to improve its financial position
through further sales of other brands or additional stores, fewer
assets will be available to mitigate future shortfalls in operating
cash. Sears currently has around 211 unencumbered properties (prior
to its planned $1 billion in asset sales) across the Sears and
Kmart banners which Moody's estimate to have over $2.5 billion in
value and still owns the Kenmore and DieHard brands. Nonetheless,
the company must improve its business performance dramatically to
have a meaningful impact on its high cash burn.

The stable rating outlook reflects Moody's views that the company's
announced plans will generate additional liquidity operate its
business. The stable outlook also considers the company's benign
debt maturity profile with no meaningful debt maturities until 2018
with the exception of the $500 million real estate loan which is
backed by 21 properties due in July 2017.

Ratings could be upgraded if the company meaningfully reduces
operating losses while maintaining an adequate liquidity profile.
Quantitatively ratings could be upgraded if Moody's expected
EBITDA-Cap Ex to interest to sustainably approach 1 times while
maintaining an adequate liquidity profile.

Ratings could be downgraded if the unencumbered asset base
continues to erode while operating losses remained significant.
Ratings could also be downgraded if the company's liquidity were to
weaken, or if probability of default were to otherwise increase.
Headquartered in Hoffman Estates, IL, Sears Holdings Corporation
through its subsidiaries, including Sears, Roebuck and Co. and
Kmart Corporation, operates 1,503 stores in the US along with
websites including sears.com and kmart.com as of October 29th,
2016. LTM domestic revenues are approximately $23.4 billion.
Approximately 50% of Sears Holdings' common stock is held by
entities affiliated with Sears Chairman and CEO Mr. Edward S.
Lampert.

SIERRA HAMILTON: Moody's Lowers Corporate Family Rating to C
------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded Sierra Hamilton LLC's
Corporate Family Rating (CFR) to C from Caa3, its Probability of
Default Rating to C-PD/LD from Caa3-PD, and its senior secured
rating to C from Caa3. The ratings outlook was changed to stable
from negative.

"The downgrade of Sierra Hamilton's CFR and senior secured notes
ratings reflects the increased likelihood of a near term
restructuring following the company's failure to make its scheduled
December 15, 2016 interest payment within the 30 day grace period,"
noted John Thieroff, Moody's Vice President. "The downgrade also
incorporates Moody's expectation for recovery on the secured notes
of less than 35%." Moody's appended a limited default designation
to Sierra Hamilton's PDR because the missed interest payment is
deemed an event of default. The "LD" designation will be removed
from the PDR within a few days.

Ratings downgraded:

Issuer: Sierra Hamilton LLC

Corporate Family Rating to C from Caa3

Probability of Default Rating to C-PD/LD from Caa3-PD

Senior Secured notes due 2018 to C (LGD5) from Caa3 (LGD4)

The rating outlook is changed to stable from negative.

RATINGS RATIONALE

The C Corporate Family Rating (CFR) reflects Sierra Hamilton's weak
cash flow generation, driven by reduced demand from upstream
exploration & production (E&P) companies, and elevated financial
leverage. The rating also incorporates the heightened potential for
a financial restructuring in the near term following the company's
announcement it had entered into a forbearance agreement with its
secured noteholders resulting from its failure to make its December
15, 2016 interest payment within the 30-day grace period. A
pronounced, protracted downturn in oil prices since late 2014 and
the resulting diminished demand for its services has materially
weakened Sierra Hamilton's credit metrics, such that EBITDA has
been negative for several quarters. While Sierra Hamilton's credit
profile benefits from its negligible maintenance capital
requirements, the company's small scale and high leverage
exacerbate its lack of pricing power.

The company's liquidity profile is weak. The company had
approximately $11 million in cash balances at September 30, 2016,
although that number falls to $4 million when considering the $7
million interest payment it failed to make in December 2016. EBITDA
has been negative for several quarters and is not expected to turn
positive imminently. The undrawn $15 million revolver serves as a
liquidity buffer, but its effective availability is capped at $12
million ($10.5 million factoring letters of credit) since there is
a springing fixed charge covenant in the credit agreement when
availability falls below 20%, which the company cannot comply with.
The company's revolver matures in June 2018 and its $110 million
senior note mature in December 2018. Substantially all of the
company's assets are pledged as collateral for the secured debts
and are largely intangible, leaving little alternative sources of
liquidity.

The stable outlook incorporates the high likelihood of a near-term
restructuring of Sierra Hamilton's secured notes on distressed
terms. Although not expected, ratings could be upgraded if the risk
of restructuring abates or Moody's views of recovery improves.

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

Sierra Hamilton primarily provides on-site supervision personnel to
oil & gas companies engaged in exploration, drilling, completion
and production. The company is 73% privately owned by Corinthian
Capital Group, LLC and the balance primarily held by members of
management.


SMITH FARM: Unsecureds to be Paid in Full at 1% Interest
--------------------------------------------------------
Smith Farm, LLC, filed with the U.S Bankruptcy Court for District
of Colorado a disclosure statement explaining its plan of
reorganization, which proposes to pay unsecured creditors in full
with interest at 1% per annum.

Under the plan, Class 2 consists of the holders of Allowed
Unsecured Claims.  The Debtor estimates total unsecured claims in
Class 2 to be equal to approximately $64,633.  The holders of
Allowed Unsecured Claims in Class 2 will be paid in full with
interest at 1% per annum calculated from the Effective Date by
receiving five 5 equal annual payments of approximately $13,317
each with interest distributed on a Pro Rata basis with the first
annual payment of $13,317 with interest due on the first
anniversary of the Effective Date and continuing annually
thereafter for 4 additional annual payments of $13,317 with
interest. Each annual payment will be equal to 1/5 of the total
amount of the allowed unsecured claims.

The Reorganized Debtor will implement its plan as follows:

   (a) Upon entry of the Confirmation Order, the Estate's Assets
will be transferred to the Reorganized Debtor.

  (b) The Reorganized Debtor will continue to operate its business
following entry of the Confirmation Order.

  (c) The Reorganized Debtor will pay creditor classes established
under the plan.

  (d) The Reorganized Debtor will pay the holders of allowed
Chapter 11 Administrative Expenses, except for the U.S. Trustee, on
the Effective Date of the plan unless otherwise agreed to between
these parties and the Reorganized Debtor, or as otherwise provided
for in the plan.

A full-text copy of the Disclosure Statement is available at:

http://bankrupt.com/misc/cob16-21062-62.pdf

Smith Farm, LLC, filed a Chapter 11 bankruptcy petition (Bankr.
D.Colo. Case No. 16-21062) on November 11, 2016. Hon. Joseph G.
Rosania Jr presides over the case. Weinman & Associates, PC
represents the Debtor as counsel.

In its petition, the Debtor estimated $1 million to $10 million
in both assets and liabilities. The petition was signed by Marylu
Smith-Dischner, manager.


SMITHFIELD FOODS: Moody's Rates $1.4BB Unsecured Notes 'Ba2'
------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service, Inc. assigned Ba2 ratings to $1.4
billion of senior unsecured notes being issued by Smithfield Foods,
Inc. Net proceeds from the offering will be used to fund the
repayment of most of the company's existing $1.9 billion of
guaranteed senior unsecured notes. Moody's also affirmed existing
ratings of Smithfield, including its Ba2 Corporate Family Rating
(CFR), Ba2-PD Probability of Default Rating, and SGL-1 Speculative
Grade Liquidity rating. Finally, Moody's revised the ratings
outlook for Smithfield to positive from stable.

Smithfield intends to repay through call options and a notes
offering substantially all of the notes that are currently
guaranteed by parent company WH Group Limited (Baa2 stable). The
company plans to refinance the guaranteed notes using proceeds from
the proposed notes offering and a newly arranged $500 million
guaranteed senior unsecured term loan (final terms of this unrated
facility are pending). The proposed notes will not have a parent
guarantee.

RATINGS RATIONALE

Smithfield's Ba2 Corporate Family Rating reflects its large scale
and global leadership in hog production, fresh pork, and
value-added packaged pork products. These strengths are balanced
against high earnings volatility inherent in the protein processing
industry, the company's single-protein concentration and high
exposure to commodity-like products (about 50% of total sales).
Smithfield's ratings are supported by its relatively stable
operating performance and modest financial leverage.

The positive outlook reflects Moody's expectation that Smithfield's
operating performance will remain relatively stable, which, along
with cash interest savings resulting from the proposed refinancing
will provide scope for further reduction in financial leverage. The
positive outlook pertains to Smithfield's stand-alone ratings
only.

Moody's has taken the following rating actions:

Smithfield Foods Inc. and its subsidiaries:

Ratings affirmed:

Corporate Family Rating at Ba2;

Probability of Default Rating at Ba2-PD;

Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating at SGL-1.

Ratings assigned:

Proposed $400 million senior unsecured notes due 2020 at Ba2 (LGD
4);

Proposed $400 million senior unsecured notes due 2022 at Ba2 (LGD
4);

Proposed $600 million senior unsecured notes due 2027 at Ba2 (LGD
4).

The rating outlook was revised to positive from stable.

Smithfield also has arranged a committed $1.0 billion guaranteed
senior unsecured revolving credit facility (final terms pending)
that will replace its existing $1.025 billion inventory-backed
liquidity facility that Moody's does not rate. As a result, upon
consummation of the proposed refinancing transaction, substantially
all of Smithfield's debt instruments will be ranked pari passu.

Since the 2013 leveraged merger with Hong Kong based WH Group,
Smithfield has repaid over $1 billion of debt through solid
earnings and internal cash generation. Earnings growth has been
largely derived from market share gains and increased volumes in
both US packaged meat sales and increased exports to China.

While both domestic and export demand for US pork should remain in
balance with supply in the near term, the potential for
over-expansion of US hog supply remains a key concern. Low feed
prices and expanding slaughter capacity driven by rising US pork
exports have pushed hog production to record levels. This has
depressed US hog prices over the past 18 months and resulted in
heavy operating losses for US hog producers, including in
Smithfield's hog operations.

Based on Moody's expectation for continued overall growth in U.S.
hog supplies in anticipation of future processing capacity
expansion, the rating agency expects that losses in Smithfield's
hog production segment will continue for the foreseeable future.
However, in recent years, losses in Smithfield's hog production
segment have been fully offset by earnings in its expanding fresh
pork business, which includes its growing pork exports. In
addition, the falling hog values have translated into lower input
costs for its highest margin packaged meats segment that is
generating record sales and over 70% of total operating profits.
Thus, as long as the hog production and fresh pork segments are at
least break-even on a combined basis, Smithfield should continue to
grow earnings and cash flow.

An upgrade to the Corporate Family Rating could occur if Moody's
expects that Smithfield is likely to sustain debt/EBITDA below
2.0x. In addition, the company would need to establish a track
record of overall earnings stability before an upgrade would be
considered. The rating could be downgraded if debt/EBITDA is
sustained above 3.0x. Other events that could trigger a downgrade
are partly out of the company's control, including trade
disruptions in key export markets, a disease outbreak or a major
oversupply condition.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Global Protein
and Agriculture Industry published in May 2013.

Smithfield Foods, Inc., headquartered in Smithfield, Virginia, is
the world's largest pork producer and processor. Annual revenue
approximates $14 billion. Hong Kong-based parent company, WH Group
Limited (formerly, Shuanghui International Holdings Ltd) is an
investment holding company that also controls the largest pork
producer in China (Henan Shuanghui Investment & Development Co.,
Ltd).


STAINLESS SALES: Auction of Equipment Scheduled for February 2
--------------------------------------------------------------
PPL Group ("PPL"), an industrial auction firm, on Jan. 18, 2017,
disclosed that the assets of Stainless Sales Corporation of
Addison, IL will be sold at auction February 2.

Stainless Sales Corporation was founded as a stainless steel

shortly thereafter.  By the mid-1960s, the company developed its
own steel slitting capabilities.  In 1982, the company moved into
the Addison, IL facility for central service to North America.  In
2009, the company added additional capacity with a new 60" slitter
and an edger, as well as a renovated line for PVC application.  In
2014, it added two cut-to-length lines, a 36" line and a 60" line.

Included in the live and online auction will be steel coil slitting
lines, cutting and coating equipment as well as shears, saws,
scales, stretch wrappers, air compressors, material handling
equipment and more.  Bidders can register and find further

SUCCESS INC: BNY to be Paid Over 20 Years at 5% Per Annum
---------------------------------------------------------
Success Inc. filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District
of Connecticut an amended disclosure statement to accompany its
amended plan of reorganization, a full-text copy of which is
available at:

             http://bankrupt.com/misc/ctb16-50884-120.pdf

Class 4, allowed secured claim of Bank of New York Mellon, is
impaired. The claims will be paid in monthly payments commencing
the month after the Effective Date of the Plan in an amount
reamortized over a 20-year period at an interest rate of 5% per
annum with the entire unpaid principal balance due and payable on
the fifth anniversary of the Effective Date of the Plan. Until
paid, it will retain its lien.

Class 11, unsecured creditors, is impaired under the plan. The
unsecured creditors will be paid 5% of their allowed unsecured
claims over the period of 60 months in annual payments commencing
the later of 30 days after the Effective Date of the Plan or upon
allowance of the particular claim.

Unsecured creditors were previously classified in Class 12 under
the original plan.

The Company has sought determinations from the Court as to the
secured status of the liens on its real estate. As a result of the
court orders entered regarding the secured status of liens on its
properties, the Debtor has been able to treat many claims under
this Plan as unsecured and has reduced its payment obligations to
secured creditors. The Debtor seeks to enter into four one-year
written lease agreements with tenants on the Success Property.
These leases provide for aggregate monthly rental payments in the
amount of $6,500.

In addition, upon zoning approval, the second and third floor of
the Success Property will be converted to up to 14 residential
apartment units. The Debtor estimates that the construction and
zoning approval costs for the conversion will be in excess of
$100,000. The Debtor anticipates filing its zoning documents within
60 days of the Effective Date of the Plan with both the City of
Bridgeport and Town of Stratford and that the zoning approval
process will require six to twelve months.

The Debtor anticipates that after the Success Property is converted
to mixed residential/commercial use it will become more marketable
for new financing providing the Company with additional funds to
make Plan payments. Upon receipt of the anticipated additional
rental income from the Success Property, the Debtor shall increase
monthly principal payments to AE Peleus LLC by an amount equal to
70% of the net increased rental income from residential tenants of
the Success Property up to a total monthly payment of $10,000 per
month. The funding for the construction and development of the
Success Property will be a capital infusion from the Equity Holder
to fund construction costs of the project and payments due
unsecured creditors and administrative claimants pursuant to the
Plan.

The Patricia Lane property is the subject of an ongoing dispute
with the Town of Stratford seeking approval to develop the parcel
as a four lot subdivision. The Debtor and prior  21  owners of the
Patricia Lane property since 2010 have been repeatedly denied
subdivision approval of the property based on a wetlands regulation
even though a 2009 owner of the property had obtained wetlands
approval for a four lot subdivision. The Debtor commenced an action
in September, 2016 in Connecticut Superior Court against the Town
of Stratford. The Debtor anticipates that the subdivision approval
will be obtained and the Patricia Lane property will be sold within
3 years of the Effective Date of the Plan. The Debtor has
negotiated written one-year lease agreements with the tenants at
the Whippoorwill and James Farm properties pursuant to which the
tenants will be responsible for all utility costs except water. The
Debtor believes that rental income from the Whippoorwill and James
Farm properties will make them more marketable for new financing
and investment allowing the Debtor to make its plan payments.

The Debtor also anticipates continuing its leasing activities for
its motor vehicles will generate approximately $4,000 per month of
income. These leasing revenues significantly exceed the Debtor's
cost of maintaining its vehicles.

                     About Success, Inc.

Curcio,
Sr., president.  The Debtor is represented by Douglas S. Skalka,

to
Judge Julie A. Manning.  The Debtor estimated assets and debts

TECK RESOURCES: Moody's Hikes Corporate Family Rating to Ba3
------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service upgraded Teck Resources Limited's
Corporate Family (CFR) rating to Ba3 from B1, Probability of
Default Rating to Ba3-PD from B1-PD; guaranteed senior unsecured
note ratings to Ba2 from Ba3 and senior unsecured notes (not
guaranteed) rating to B1 from B3. Teck's Speculative Grade
Liquidity Rating was affirmed at SGL-2. The rating outlook has been
changed to positive from stable.

"Teck's ratings have been upgraded because Moody's outlook for
their products has improved and the company is expected to use its
cash flow to reduce debt", said Jamie Koutsoukis, Moody's Vice
President, Senior Analyst.

Issuer: Teck Resources Limited

Upgrades:

-- Probability of Default Rating, Upgraded to Ba3-PD from B1-PD

-- Corporate Family Rating, Upgraded to Ba3 from B1

-- Senior Unsecured Notes, Upgraded to B1(LGD5) from B3(LGD5)

-- Guaranteed Senior Unsecured Notes, Upgraded to Ba2(LGD2) from
Ba3(LGD3)

Affirmations:

-- Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating, Affirmed SGL-2

Outlook Actions:

-- Outlook, Changed to Positive from Stable

RATINGS RATIONALE

Teck's Ba3 corporate family rating reflects its exposure to
volatile commodity prices (metallurgical coal, copper and zinc)
which can cause large swings in leverage and cash flow, good
liquidity, low geopolitical risk, scale and diversity, as well as a
good average cost position. Metallurgical (met) coal has been
extremely volatile over the past few months, but is expected to
come down from recent highs, while both copper and zinc have shown
strength. It is possible the company will generate about $2 billion
in free cash flow in 2017 and $800 million in 2018, using Moody's
price assumptions, and Moody's expects Teck will reduce debt by
about $1 billion. Cash flow is also increasing in part because
Teck's $3 billion investment in the Fort Hills oil sands project
over the last few years is expected to be completed in early 2018.
Moody's estimates that adjusted debt/EBITDA may approximate 2.5x by
the end of 2018 (4.2x at Sept16), although it could approach 6x
under Moody's stress price assumptions. The recent rise in met coal
pricing provides strong cash flow to Teck currently, but it
highlights the difficulty of estimating future prices, which is
credit negative as the company can see large swings in EBITDA and
cash flow generation.

Teck's liquidity is good (SGL-2). Sources of liquidity include cash
of C$690 million at October 26, 2016 pro forma its debt
repurchases, $3 billion of unused revolvers and C$2 billion in
expected free cash flow in 2017 using Moody's pricing assumptions.
The company has no material debt maturities through 2020 following
its second quarter 2016 bond offering and tender offer. Teck's
credit facilities consist of its US$1.2 billion facility of which
$200 million matures in June 2017 and the remainder matures in June
2019 (US$975 million drawn for letters of credit) and US$3 billion
which matures in 2020 (undrawn). Moody's expects that Teck will
maintain ample cushion to its maximum 50% Debt/Capitalization debt
covenant (34% at September 30, 2016).

The positive outlook reflects Moody's expectation that leverage may
decline towards 2.5x, although much depends on future commodity
prices and the expected $1 billion reduction in debt.

An upgrade to Ba2 would be considered if the dynamics of the met
coal market were to show more stability, adjusted Debt/EBITDA is
likely to be sustained under 3x, (CFO-Dividends)/Debt will likely
be sustained above 20%, and the company maintains its good
liquidity.

Teck's rating could be downgraded to B1 if the company were to
releverage, where Debt/EBITDA is likely to be sustained above 4x. A
downgrade could also occur is if the company were to return to
generating material negative free cash flow and resultantly weaken
its liquidity profile.

Headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, Teck
Resources is a diversified mining company with assets in Canada,
the U.S., Peru and Chile. The company is a leading producer of
metallurgical coal, operates one of the world's largest zinc mines
(Red Dog in Alaska) and also produces a meaningful amount of
copper. Revenues for the last 12 trailing months ending Sept 30,
2016 were C$7.9 billion.


TIAT CORPORATION: Court Allows SBNV's Secured Claim for $1.956-Mil.
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Robert E. Nugent of the United States Bankruptcy Court for
the District of Kansas allowed SBNV's secured claim in the amount
of $1,956,000 against Tiat Corporation.

TIAT Corporation operates the Inn at Tallgrass, an extended-stay
hotel that is encumbered by a mortgage securing SBNV's non-recourse
claim filed in the amount of $4,596,648.50.  SBNV filed a motion
for valuation under Fed. R. Bankr. P. 3012, proposing values up to
$5.33 million.  In its plan, TIAT proposed a value of $2,161,761.


Neither proposal values the Inn in light of its anticipated use or
disposition given its condition, historical performance, its
competitive disadvantages, and the current local hotel market.
SBNV's appraisal relies on speculative assumption and optimistic
projections.  TIAT's report contains several calculation errors and
relies on 10-month-old historical data.  

After reviewing all the evidence, Judge Nugent concluded that the
mode of valuation that best reflects what section 506(a) requires
is a direct capitalization of the trailing 12 months' net operating
income, as adjusted for average historical operating expenses, at a
capitalization rate of 10.8 percent.  That yields a value for the
Inn at Tallgrass of $1,956,000 for plan confirmation purposes.  The
judge held that SBNV's secured claim should be allowed in that
amount.

TRIGEE FOUNDATION: Bid for Judge Teel to Recuse Denied
------------------------------------------------------
Judge S. Martin Teel, Jr., of the United States Bankruptcy Court,
District of Columbia denied the debtor's motion seeking the judge's
recusal from the case captioned In re TRIGEE FOUNDATION, INC.,
Chapter 11, Debtor, Case No. 12-00624 (Bankr. D.C.).

Invoking 28 U.S.C. section 455(a) and section 455(b)(1), the debtor
sought to have Judge Teel recuse himself from hearing the case and
the related adversary proceeding that asserts malpractice claims
against the debtor's former attorneys, Jeffrey M. Sherman and
Lerch, Early & Brewer, Chtd.

The debtor contended that Judge Teel's personal knowledge of what
transpired in the bankruptcy case is a basis for him to recuse.
Judge Teel pointed out that the Bankruptcy Court sits as a court of
record and thus, any knowledge that the judge has acquired
regarding the conduct of the attorneys in the bankruptcy case was a
matter of public record, and not "personal knowledge" of "disputed
evidentiary facts" for purposes of section 455(b)(1).  

The debtor also pointed to a comment the judge made at a hearing as
allegedly showing that his impartiality might be questioned.  Judge
Teel held that the remark he made at a hearing that the debtor
points to does not establish a need for the judge to recuse.
Further, the judge noted that there has been no allegation of bias
or prejudice based upon an extrajudical source, so section
455(b)(1) cannot apply.

The debtor also raised Judge Teel's having nominated Sherman for an
award regarding his working on establishing the Bankruptcy
Assistance Center (which provides legal advice to unrepresented
parties in bankruptcy matters) and having recognized Sherman for
his work on the court's Advisory Committee on Local Bankruptcy
Rules.  Judge Teel explained that, objectively considered, these
were not acts that a reasonable person would find indicate that the
judge harbored a bias in favor of Sherman or against the debtor in
the bankruptcy case and the adversary proceeding or a bias
regarding a particular legal claim or theory asserted in the
bankruptcy case or the adversary proceeding such as to require
recusal under section 455(a) or section 455(b)(1).

WRIGHTWOOD GUEST: Bid to Dismiss Settlement Appeals Granted
-----------------------------------------------------------
Judge Michael W. Fitzgerald of the United States District Court for
the Central District of California granted Chapter 11 Trustee and
Appellee Richard J. Laski's Motion to Dismiss Consolidated
Bankruptcy Appeals in the case captioned In Re: WRIGHTWOOD GUEST
RANCH, LLC, Debtor, Case No. EDCV 16-1768-MWF (C.D. Cal.).

In August 2015, an involuntary bankruptcy petition was filed
against the debtor, Wrightwood Guest Ranch, LLC.  The appointed
Trustee determined after reviewing Wrightwood's assets that a sale
of the property was in the best interest of Wrightwood's estate and
creditors.  On June 28, 2016, the Trustee filed a motion in the
bankruptcy court to have the proper sale authorized.  One day
later, the Trustee reached a settlement with the principal secured
creditor, GreenLake Real Estate Fund LLC, and filed a motion to
have the settlement approved by the bankruptcy court.

Several parties filed written oppositions to the Trustee's motion
to have the settlement approved: the Official Committee of
Unsecured Creditors, Richard and July Hallett, and SWG, Inc.  The
bankruptcy court held multiple hearings on July 19, 2016, regarding
the property sale.  At one of those hearings, an attorney from Reid
& Hellyer, APC made an appearance on behalf of the Committee of
Creditors.  An attorney for the law firm Walter Wilhelm Bauer (WWB)
appeared telephonically on behalf of Wrightwood.  The bankruptcy
court granted the sale motion and the motion seeking to have the
settlement approved pursuant to Federal Rule of Bankruptcy 9019.
The settlement order was entered on August 5, 2016.

On August 16, 2016, Reid & Hellyer filed a timely appeal of the
settlement order.  WWB also filed a timely appeal of the settlement
order on August 24, 2016.  The district court consolidated the two
appeals on September 22, 2016.

On August 30, 2016, the bankruptcy court entered a sale order,
approving the sale of the bankruptcy estate's interest in 300 acres
of real property, pursuant to the settlement agreement.  No party
appealed the sale order, and the sale of the property closed on
September 9, 2016.

On September 28, 2016, the Trustee moved to dismiss the
consolidated appeals for two reasons: (1) the appellants lack
standing to appeal the settlement order and (2) the consolidated
appeals are moot.  

Judge Fitzgerald granted the Trustee's motion.  The judge found
that each appellant's failure to object on the record and on its
own behalf deprives them of standing to appeal the bankruptcy
court's decision.  The judge also found, as an independent ground
for dismissal, that the appeals are moot because the appellants
failed to seek a stay of the bankruptcy court's orders prior to
appealing.

                   About Wrightwood Guest Ranch

endurance races, logging and other outdoor events at a 300-acre
property it owns in Wrightwood area of Los Angeles County.  WGR

property at Wrightwood area.

WGR is 60% owned by Richard and Judy Halllett and 40% owned by GREF

Fund, LLC.  WGR owns 100% of the interests in Wrightwood Guest
Ranch Holdings, LLC, which in turns owns 100% of the interests in

Being concerned about GreenLake's threat of foreclosure, unsecured
creditors Masterpiece Marketing, Larry Rundle, and Snyder
Dorenfeld, filed an involuntary petition against Wrightwood Guest
Ranch LLC (Bankr. C.D. Cal. Case No. 15-17799) on Aug. 5, 2015.
The Petitioners' counsel is Douglas A Plazak, Esq., at Reid &
Hellyer, APC, in Riverside, California.

The Bankruptcy Court on Aug. 31, 2015, granted Wrightwood Guest
Ranch's request for relief under Chapter 11 and vacated the
Involuntary Petition filed against the Debtor.

The case is assigned to Judge Scott C. Clarkson.

The Debtor tapped Walter & Wilhelm Law Group as bankruptcy counsel;
Hall & Company as accountants; and Baker, Manock & Jensen as
special counsel.

                          *     *     *

The Debtor filed a proposed Plan and Disclosure Statement on
Oct. 26, 2015.  On Dec. 4, 2014, it filed an amended Plan and
Disclosure Statement.  Under the Plan, the Debtor intends to pay
unsecured creditors 100 percent of their allowed claims, together

payments will be made in semi-annual installments over the course
of the next 60 months; the remainder will be paid "with a balloon
payment due at the end of the sixtieth month following the
Effective Date."


XTREME POWER: Court Narrows Claims vs. Directors
------------------------------------------------
In the adversary proceeding captioned, XTREME POWER PLAN TRUST, by
and through Angelo DeCaro, Jr., Trustee Plaintiff, v. WALTER
SCHINDLER; H. HENRY HABICHT; LEE TASHJIAN; ALAN GOTCHER; UMESH
PADVAL; PAT WOOD III; FOSTER DUNCAN; and SAIL CAPITAL PARTNERS,
LLC, Defendants,  Adversary No. 16-01004-HCM (Bankr. W.D. Tex.),
Judge H. Christopher Mott of the United States Bankruptcy Court for
the Western District of Texas, Austin Division, dismissed all
claims in the amended complaint and dismissed all defendants,
except for the breach of the duty of loyalty claims in Count 1
against the director defendants, Walter Schindler, H. Henry
Habicht, Foster Duncan, and Alan Gotcher.

Following the sale of substantially all assets under 11 U.S.C.
section 363, Xtreme Power Inc. and its two subsidiaries, Xtreme
Power Systems, LLC and Xtreme Power Grove, LLC, filed a Second
Amended Joint Chapter 11 Plan of Liquidation.  In accordance with
the terms of a Mediated Settlement Agreement dated September 29,
2014, the Second Amended Plan created a Plan Trust to pursue
Xtreme's remaining causes of action for the benefit of creditors.
The Second Amended Plan also named a Plan Trustee with the
authority and standing to pursue, among other actions, any
litigation claim relating to alleged misconduct of the officers and
directors of Xtreme.  The Court confirmed the Second Amended Plan
on February 11, 2015.  The Second Amended Plan became effective on
February 26, 2015.

The Plan Trustee then commenced adversary proceeding no. 16-01004
on January 19, 2016.  The complaint named all seven of the former
members of Xtreme's Board of Directors as well as SAIL Capital
Partners, LLC as defendants.  The seven board members that were
sued individually as director defendants are: Schindler, Habicht,
Duncan, Gotcher, Lee Tashjian, Umesh Padval, and Pat Wood III.
SAIL was also sued in its capacity as a shareholder of Xtreme.

The Plan Trustee then filed an amended complaint on May 31, 2016.
As before, the amended complaint asserted various causes of action
against the defendants, including breach of fiduciary duties,
aiding and abetting, and civil conspiracy.  Additionally, as in the
original complaint, the amended complaint contained several
miscellaneous allegations, such as inapplicability of the business
judgment rule, alter ego, and agency.  

The director defendants filed a motion to dismiss the amended
complaint on June 23, 2016.  SAIL also filed a motion to dismiss
the amended complaint.  Both motions sought dismissal under Rule
12(b)(6) for failure by the Plan Trustee to state a claim.
Additionally, both motions challenged the Plan Trustee's right to
relief in light of the business judgment rule and the exculpatory
provision contained in Xtreme's Certificate of Incorporation.

Count 1 of the amended complaint is based on the alleged "breach of
fiduciary duty and gross negligence" owed to Xtreme by all the
defendants, including alleged breaches of the duties of loyalty,
good faith, and care.  In this count, the Plan Trustee claimed
self-dealing, bad faith, and gross negligence by the defendants.

Count 2 of the amended complaint alleged a claim for civil
conspiracy against the director defendants and SAIL.  Count 2
alleged that both the director defendants and SAIL conspired to
cause the breaches of fiduciary duties complained of in Count 1.

Judge Mott held that due to the deferential standard of Rule
12(b)(6) of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, the Plan Trustee
may continue to pursue a claim against four of the eight defendants
(Schindler, Habicht, Duncan, and Gotcher) for breach of the duty of
loyalty only.  The judge held that the remainder of the amended
complaint skates on such thin ice that it must be dismissed under
Rule 12(b)(6).  As a result, Judge Mott concluded that all claims
by the Plan Trustee against four of the eight defendants (Tashjian,
Padval, Wood, and SAIL) must be dismissed.

Further, Judge Mott did not grant the Plan Trustee leave to amend
the amended complaint (for a second time) to attempt to make
plausible those claims dismissed, because a comparison between the
original complaint and the amended complaint filed by the Plan
Trustee shows that only minor changes were made by the Plan Trustee
to its allegations.  As a result, Judge Mott concluded that
granting the Plan Trustee further leave to amend would be futile
and result in continued undue delay.

The bankruptcy case is IN RE: XTREME POWER INC., et al., (Chapter
11) Debtors, Case No. 14-10096-HCM (Bankr. W.D. Tex.).

YAPPN CORP: Incurs $2.52 Million Net Loss in Second Quarter
-----------------------------------------------------------
YAPPN Corp. filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission its
quarterly report on Form 10-Q disclosing a net loss and
comprehensive loss of $2.52 million on $106,998 of revenues for the
three months ended Nov. 30, 2016, compared to a net loss and
comprehensive loss of $2.05 million on $52,222 of revenues for the
same period during the prior year.

For the six months ended Nov. 30, 2016, the Company reported a net
loss and comprehensive loss of $4.30 million on $207,066 of
revenues compared to a net loss and comprehensive loss of $1.88
million on $810,381 of revenues for the six months ended Nov. 30,
2015.

As of Nov. 30, 2016, the Company had $4.74 million in total assets,
$9.20 million in total liabilities and a total stockholders'
deficit of $4.46 million.

As of Nov. 30, 2016, the Company had a cash balance of $441,363,
which is a decrease of $7,212 from the ending cash balance of
$448,575 as of May 31, 2016.  The Company said it does not have
sufficient funds to fund its operations over the next twelve
months.  

"There can be no assurance that additional capital will be
available to us.  Since we have no other financial arrangements
currently in effect, our inability to raise funds for the above
purposes will have a severe negative impact on our ability to
remain a viable going concern.

"Implementation of the Company business plan will require
additional debt or equity financing and there can be no assurance
that additional financing can be obtained on acceptable terms.  The
Company has realized limited revenues to cover its operating costs.
As such, the Company has incurred an operating loss since
inception.  This and other factors raise substantial doubt about
its ability to continue as a going concern.  The Company's
continuation as a going concern is dependent on its ability to meet
its obligations, to obtain additional financing as may be required,
and ultimately to attain profitability," the Company stated in the
filing.

ZOHAR CDO 2003: Lynn Tilton Sees "Gamesmanship" in Funds' Lawsuit
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Tom Corrigan, writing for The Wall Street Journal Pro Bankruptcy,
reported that a lawyer for financier Lynn Tilton says a recent
lawsuit, launched against her by the new managers of funds central
to her distressed-debt empire, is "a brazen act of forum shopping"
that will further damage her portfolio of troubled companies.

According to the report, in a letter to U.S. District Judge Jed
Rakoff, Ms. Tilton's lawyer called the new lawsuit "fatally flawed"
and said its incendiary allegations will only hurt the companies
the fund managers are obligated to support.

"These public allegations are damaging to Ms. Tilton's business
operations and destabilizing for these portfolio companies at a
very sensitive time, putting their financing in jeopardy," Randy
Mastro, Esq., Ms. Tilton's lawyer, said in the letter, the Journal
cited.

As previously reported by The Troubled Company Reporter, citing WSJ
Pro Bankruptcy, the Zohar investment funds at the heart of Ms.
Tilton's $2.5 billion distressed-debt empire sued their founder,
accusing Ms. Tilton of pillaging more than $1 billion from
investors and the troubled companies she manages.

According to the report, the lawsuit filed in a federal court in
New York alleged that through a "toxic mix of fraud, theft and
mismanagement," Ms. Tilton stole money from the Zohar funds and
from the troubled companies, siphoning hundreds of millions of
dollars in fees and assets from a souring loan portfolio and
failing businesses.

Ms. Tilton vehemently denies what she says are "vicious"
allegations, calling them "frivolous, baseless and vexatious," the
report related.

In his letter to Judge Rakoff, Mr. Mastro, a lawyer at the law firm
of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, accused the fund managers of
"procedural gamesmanship" aimed at using a favorable court to gain
the upper hand in the legal battle over who -- Ms. Tilton or the
Zohar funds—owns the equity in the portfolio companies, the
report further related.

The equity ownership dispute is already the subject of other
lawsuits in New York and Delaware, where Alvarez & Marsal has moved
to take over some of the more valuable companies on the grounds
that the Zohar funds own the businesses, the report noted.
Ownership of the companies is an important point, since warding off
a default in the last Zohar fund, which comes due in 2019, likely
means selling the businesses, or taking other action to refurbish
them, the report said.

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.
