ADVANCED SOLIDS: Sale of Remaining Furniture on Consignment Okayed
------------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Ronald B. King of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Western
District of Texas authorized Advanced Solids Control, LLC's
consignment sale by H. Lancaster Co. of remaining furniture for
their new minimum prices.

A copy of the list of the remaining personal property to be sold
with their reduced minimum prices is available for free at:

         http://bankrupt.com/misc/Advanced_Solids_124_Order.pdf

The sale is free and clear of all liens, claims and encumbrances.

The Debtor has no liens against the remaining furniture, and the
Debtor is authorized to use the net sales proceeds to assist it
with its reorganization efforts and the payment of creditors of the
Estate.

                 About Advanced Solids Control

Advanced Solids Control, LLC, is an oilfield service company
specializing in solids control for land-based oil and gas drilling
operations.  

Advanced Solids sought Chapter 11 protection (Bankr. W.D. Tex.
Case No. 16-52748) on Dec. 2, 2016.  W. Lynn Frazier, managing
member, signed the petition.  The Debtor estimated assets of $0 to
$50,000 and $500,001 to $1,000,000 in debt.

The Debtor tapped William R. Davis, Jr., Esq., at Langley &
Banack, Inc., as counsel.


AEROPOSTALE: Sues Hilco, et al., for Turnover of $1.3M Funds
------------------------------------------------------------
BankruptcyData.com reported that Aeropostale Inc. filed with the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court a complaint against Hilco Merchant Resources,
Gordon Brothers Retail Partners and Aero Opco (Defendants).
Aeropostale argues, "Plaintiffs bring this action to obtain an
order directing Defendants to turnover $1,335,471.84, the amount of
a vendor deposit made by the Debtors to Star Fancy Holdings in July
2016 as a prepayment for certain goods, that Defendants are
wrongfully withholding from the estates. On September 13, 2016,
shortly after the Debtors paid the Deposit to Star Fancy, the Court
approved the sale of substantially all of the Debtors' business to
Aero OpCo (the 'Sale'). In connection with the Sale, the Debtors
and Aero OpCo designated a joint venture composed of Hilco and GB
to serve as their exclusive Agent for purposes of selling certain
inventory including that which was subject to open purchase orders
at the time of the Sale, including the goods that the Debtors
purchased from Star Fancy. Vendor deposits, like the Star Fancy
Deposit, were expressly excluded from the Sale. Under the terms of
the Purchase Agreement and Agency Agreement, the Agent, upon
delivery of goods subject to a vendor deposit paid by the Debtors,
is required to reimburse the Debtors for the full amount of the
vendor deposit. In October 2016, Star Fancy delivered the goods
subject to the Debtors' prepayment Deposit, thus triggering the
Agent's obligation to reimburse the Debtors for the Deposit. The
Debtors promptly demanded that the Agent turn over the full amount
of the Deposit to them. The Agent has refused to do so."

AGROFRESH INC: Moody's Affirms B2 CFR & Alters Outlook to Negative
------------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service affirmed AgroFresh Inc's B2 corporate
family rating, B2-PD probability of default rating and B2 senior
secured credit facility rating. Moody's also lowered the
speculative grade liquidity rating to SGL-3 from SGL-2 and revised
the ratings outlook to negative. The revision of the rating outlook
to negative reflects diminished growth prospects due to slower than
expected commecialization of new products and increased competition
relative to when the rating was first assigned. The negative
outlook also reflects patent expiration for the key encapsulation
technology over the next two years which together with increased
competitive environment will likely pressure margins going
forward.

Moody's took the following rating actions for AgroFresh, Inc.

Downgrades:

Issuer: AgroFresh, Inc.

-- Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating, Downgraded to SGL-3 from
    SGL-2

Outlook Actions:

Issuer: AgroFresh, Inc.

-- Outlook, Negative

Affirmations:

Issuer: AgroFresh, Inc.

-- Probability of Default Rating, Affirmed B2-PD

-- Corporate Family Rating, Affirmed B2

-- Senior Secured Bank Credit Facility, Affirmed B2 (LGD3)

RATINGS RATIONALE

The B2 corporate family rating reflects AgroFresh's high business
risk due to technology, product and crop concentration, small scale
and high financial leverage. While AgroFresh has introduced some
new products, it continues to generate 90% its sales and earnings
from its principal product SmartFresh, with 85% of the company's
sales generated from SmartFresh use on apples. The planned
expansion into other active ingredients, technologies, crops and
end markets has been slower than expected when the rating was first
assigned. Moreover, the company is facing modest organic growth
opportunities coupled with increasing competition and patent
expiration for its encapsulation technology over the next few
years, which could pressure margins going forward. Moody's believes
the company will pursue acquisitions to improve its growth
trajectory, and hence there is heightened event risk, while it is
still building out its systems for a stand-alone company following
its separation from The Dow Chemical Company in 2015. AgroFresh's
relatively short history as a stand-alone entity and senior
management turnover are also constraining factors for the rating.
However, the company benefits from technological know-how and
asset-light business model which support high EBITDA margins of
around 50%, strong free cash flow generation and expected adequate
liquidity. The rating reflects expectations for improved cash flows
after the company reached an agreement in April 2017, which will
reduce its future cash payments to Dow, its key shareholder. The
rating anticipates that all additional cash will be used to support
growth initiatives rather than debt repayments.

The negative rating outlook reflects diminished growth prospects,
increased competition, near-term patent expiration and potential
margin compression. There is limited upside to the rating at this
time due to AgroFresh's small size, single product concentration,
and single crop risk. Moody's could upgrade the rating if the
company successfully commercializes its new products, while
maintaining strong margins and cash generation. Moody's could
downgrade the rating if sales and EBITDA margins decline, and
acquisitions increase leverage sustainably above 6 times. Moody's
could also downgrade the rating if free cash flow turns negative.

AgroFresh's SGL-3 Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating reflects
adequate liquidity supported by $85 million in cash and good cash
flow generation. Approximately half of cash is held domestically,
while the majority of cash held overseas is easily accessible. The
company has a $25 million revolver due 2019, which was undrawn as
of March 31, 2017, though availability is reduced by $0.5 million
of letters of credit outstanding. While working capital needs are
anticipated to be funded by ample cash generation, the revolver
could be used to support the highly seasonal swings which are
concentrated in the fourth quarter. There are no near term
maturities, as the company's $425 million Term Loan B facility is
due 2021. The annual amortization is $4.25 million. The credit
agreement has a springing senior secured net leverage ratio of 4.25
times if the revolver is drawn or outstanding letters of credit are
above $5 million. The covenant was not tested but if it were the
cushion is narrow. The covenant steps down to 4 times on July 1,
2017. If performance deteriorates the company may not have access
to the full amount of draw of the revolver. All assets are
encumbered under secured credit facilities.

Headquartered in Philadelphia, PA, AgroFresh Solutions, Inc., the
parent company of AgroFresh, Inc., was originally incorporated as
Boulevard Acquisition Corp., a special purpose acquisition company,
and changed its name after completing its acquisition the AgroFresh
business from Dow. AgroFresh is an agricultural chemicals company
in the area of fresh produce preservation, which provides products
and services for use in produce storage, transportation, and
harvest management. Revenues for the last twelve months ending
March 31, 2017 were approximately $159 million.

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


ALLIANCE ONE: S&P Affirms 'CCC+' CCR; Outlook Negative
------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings affirmed its 'CCC+' corporate credit rating on
Morrisville, N.C.-based Alliance One International Inc. (AOI).  The
rating outlook is negative.

At the same time, S&P affirmed all issue-level ratings including
its 'B+' rating on the company's $60 million ABL facility due 2021
with a '1+' recovery rating, which indicates S&P's expectation for
full recovery (100%) in the event of a payment default.  S&P also
affirmed its 'B-' issue-level rating on the company's $275 million
senior secured first-lien notes maturing April 2021 with a '2'
recovery rating, indicating S&P's expectation for substantial
recovery (70%-90%, rounded estimate 70%) in the event of a payment
default.  S&P also affirmed the 'CCC' rating on the company's $735
million senior secured second-lien notes, with a recovery rating of
'5', indicating S&P's expectation for modest recovery (10%-30%,
rounded estimate 10%) in the event of a payment default.

Reported debt outstanding as of March 31, 2017, is $1.4 billion.

The rating affirmation reflects S&P's forecast that the company's
credit metrics will show modest improvement but remain very weak
over the next year, including adjusted debt to EBITDA in the mid-9x
area (compared to over 12x currently) and EBITDA to cash interest
coverage below 1.5x.  Despite S&P's forecast for modest
improvement, the company has missed its estimates over the last
several years.

The negative outlook reflects the potential for a lower rating over
the next 12 months if operating performance weakens further.

S&P could revise the outlook to stable if operating performance
improves such that S&P forecasts the company will generate
sustained positive free cash flow and EBITDA to cash interest
coverage above 1.5x.


ALLIED CONSOLIDATED: Court Denies U.S. Steel's Oral Motion for Stay
-------------------------------------------------------------------
On May 2, 2017, Debtors and Debtors-in-Possession Allied
Consolidated Industries, Inc., Allied Erecting & Dismantling
Co.,Inc., Allied Industrial Scrap, Inc., and Allied-Gator, Inc.,
and the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors jointly filed a
Second Amended Joint Plan of Reorganization proposed by the Debtor
and the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors.

On May 31, 2017, United States Steel Corporation filed an objection
to the confirmation of the Second Amended Joint Plan of
Reorganization.

Judge Kay Woods of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern
District of Ohio held a hearing to consider confirmation of the
Joint Plan on June 7, 2017, which hearing was continued to and
concluded on June 14, 2017. Upon conclusion of the Confirmation
Hearing, Judge Woods orally approved confirmation of the Joint Plan
and overruled the Objection.

Following Judge Woods' oral ruling approving confirmation of the
Joint Plan, Charles M. Oellermann, counsel for U.S. Steel, made an
oral motion asking the court to stay the plan confirmation order
pending U.S. Steel's appeal of the order. Absent the stay, the
plan's effective date occurs 15 days after the entry of an order
confirming the plan.

Judge Woods issued an oral ruling denying the Oral Motion.

In coming up with the decision, Judge Woods considered that U.S.
Steel made no argument to support its Oral Motion other than a
desire to avoid an adverse ruling on equitable mootness grounds.

The Sixth Circuit has recognized that, in determining whether an
injunction should be issued pending appeal, a trial court, which in
this case was the Bankruptcy Court, should apply "the same four
factors that are traditionally considered in evaluating the
granting of a preliminary injunction." These four balancing factors
are: (1) the likelihood that the party seeking the stay will
prevail on the merits of the appeal; (2) the likelihood that the
moving party will be irreparably harmed absent a stay; (3) the
prospect that others will be harmed if the court grants the stay;
and (4) the public interest in granting the stay.

In the present case, U.S. Steel made no attempt to show that any of
the four factors required for imposing a stay are applicable. Judge
Woods also finds that U.S. Steel has not demonstrated any of the
requisite four factors to obtain a stay pending appeal of the
Confirmation Order.

Additionally, Mr. Oellermann referenced that reliance interests
will be created if the Joint Plan is implemented. However, those
reliance interests will be that creditors will receive
distributions in payment of their claims. This is exactly the same
result that would be obtained if the case were to be converted to a
Chapter 7 liquidation, which is the desired result U.S. Steel
seeks. Consequently, the Court sees no basis to stay the
Confirmation Order merely because reliance interests may be
created.

Based on the said reasons, Judge Woods rules that U.S. Steel has
not demonstrated any likelihood that it will prevail on the merits
of an appeal; U.S. Steel will not be irreparably harmed absent a
stay, and other parties would be harmed by the imposition of a stay
pending appeal of the Confirmation Order.

As a consequence, the Court will not enter an order staying the
Confirmation Order.

Case
No. 16-40675) on April 13, 2016.  The petitions were signed by

R. Ramun, president.

The Court approved the retention of Suhar & Macejko, LLC, as

ALLIED CONSOLIDATED: USS' Objection to 2nd Amended Plan Overruled
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Kay Woods of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern
District of Ohio overruled the objection of United States Steel
Corporation to the Confirmation of the Second Amended Joint Plan of
Reorganization jointly filed by Allied Consolidated Industries,
Inc., Allied Erecting & Dismantling Co., Inc., Allied Industrial
Scrap, Inc., and Allied-Gator, Inc. and the Official Committee of
Unsecured Creditors.

U.S. Steel's objection contains several discrete objections to the
Joint Plan.  Two objections asserted by U.S. Steel have been
resolved by agreement and modification on the record at the
Confirmation Hearing: (i) the Debtors have agreed to use language
offered by U.S. Steel to modify certain alleged contradictory
and/or ambiguous provisions of the Joint Plan; and (ii) the Debtors
have agreed that the "Fairless Agreements" would be rejected rather
than assumed.

The remaining objections can be summarized, as follows: First, the
Joint Plan is mischaracterized as a plan of reorganization, whereas
it actually provides for liquidation of the Debtors' assets rather
than reorganization of the Debtors' business operations. Second,
the Joint Plan fails to meet the best-interest-of-creditors test in
11 U.S.C. section 1129(a)(7), which requires the Joint Plan to
provide U. S. Steel with no less than what it would receive if the
Debtors' assets were liquidated under chapter 7. Third, the Joint
Plan is not feasible. Fourth, the Joint Plan does not comply with
the cramdown standard in 11 U.S.C. section 1129(b)(2)(A) with
respect to U.S. Steel's claim.

After a thorough analysis of U.S. Steel's arguments, Judge Woods
overrules the four fundamental objections. First, the Joint Plan
is, in fact, a plan of reorganization. AIS and AGI will continue to
operate following the Effective Date, and the Joint Plan
contemplates that AGI will continue to operate after termination of
the Creditor Trust. Second, the Joint Plan meets the
best-interest-of-creditors test in 11 U.S.C. section 1129(a)(7)
because U.S. Steel will receive the same value under either the
Joint Plan or a chapter 7 liquidation. Third, the Joint Plan is
feasible, as exhibited through the testimony of John K. Lane, the
Debtors' Crisis Manager. Finally, the Joint Plan meets the cramdown
requirements in 11 U.S.C. section 1129(b)(2)(A) because it is fair
and equitable and does not unfairly discriminate against U.S.
Steel.

AM CASTLE: Seeks to Assume $125M Exit Facility Commitment Letter
----------------------------------------------------------------
A.M. Castle & Co. and its affiliated debtors ask the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware to assume the
$125,000,000 Senior Secured Facilities Exit Facility Commitment
Letter dated June 1, 2017, with PNC Bank, National Association.

The Debtors' Prepackaged Joint Chapter 11 Plan of Reorganization
contemplates implementing a new senior secured exit financing
facility in order to repay certain existing first lien debt and to
provide additional working capital liquidity to the reorganized
Debtors on a post-emergence basis.

Consistent with the Plan and following an extensive marketing
effort, the Debtors negotiated the terms of the Exit Facility
Commitment Letter with PNC and executed such commitment prior to
the commencement of the Debtors' bankruptcy cases.  The Debtors
believe that the financing contemplated under the Exit Facility
Commitment Letter is advantageous to the Debtors given the low
interest rate that will be charged and the amount of liquidity (up
to $125 million) that will be made available to the reorganized
Debtors, subject to the borrowing base and other conditions set
forth in the Exit Facility Commitment Letter.

The Debtors now seek to assume the exit Facility Commitment Letter
in order to ensure that the funding contemplated thereunder will be
available to the Debtors following confirmation of the Plan.  By
assuming the Exit Facility Commitment Letter, the Debtors will be
agreeing to reimburse PNC for its reasonable fees and expenses in
connection with its due diligence and preparation of definitive
documents with respect to the contemplated exit facility, and to
indemnify PNC as to any damages or losses that PNC or its
affiliated persons may incur as a result of, or in connection with,
the exit facility.

                 $125M Revolving Credit Facility

The Exit Facility Commitment Letter contemplates a $125 million
senior secured, revolving credit facility for the Debtors (the
"Exit Facility"), to be entered into upon the effective date of the
Plan.  Under the Exit Facility Commitment Letter, PNC has agreed to
act as Agent, Lead Arranger and Sole Book Runner of the Exit
Facility.  The Exit Facility Commitment Letter sets forth certain
of the anticipated terms and conditions of the Exit Facility.
Consummation of the Exit Facility will be subject to the completion
of definitive documentation, the satisfaction of certain
conditions, including the Court's approval thereof, and the payment
by the Debtors of required fees and expenses.

The proceeds of the Exit Facility, upon closing, would be used to
(a) refinance certain existing debt of the Debtors and their
subsidiaries, including debt under a contemplated
debtor-in-possession facility (the "DIP Facility"), (b) pay fees
and Expenses related to this transaction, (c) satisfy ongoing
capital expenditures, and (d) provide the ongoing growth and
working capital needs of the Debtors.  

The Exit Facility Commitment Letter requires the Debtors to obtain
an order approving this Motion within 30 days after the filing of
the motion to approve the DIP Facility.  

As reported in the June 22, 2017 edition of the TCR, the Debtors
filed a separate motion to seek approval of a new $85 million
senior, secured debtor-in-possession financing facility ("DIP
Facility") with PNC Bank, as administrative agent and postpetition
lender.

Interest on the indebtedness under the Exit Facility is expected to
accrue based on the applicable LIBOR-based rate, as set forth in
the Exit Facility Commitment Letter.

The Exit Facility will have maturity of five years from the closing
date.

The obligations of the Debtors and their existing and future
subsidiaries are, subject to certain conditions, to be secured by a
first priority perfected security interest in all or substantially
all of their respective assets and the Debtors' equity interests in
subsidiaries.

Pursuant to the Exit Facility Commitment Letter, and in
consideration for PNC's commitment, the Debtors were required to
pay PNC a customary deposit for reasonable costs and expenses that
may be incurred by PNC in connection with the transactions
contemplated by the Exit Facility Commitment Letter (the "PNC
Expenses"), which deposit is subject to reduction on a
dollar-for-dollar basis for the deposit paid by the Debtors to PNC
in connection with the DIP Facility Commitment Letter.  As a result
of the simultaneous execution of the DIP Facility Commitment Letter
and the Exit Facility Commitment Letter, no additional deposit was
required under the Exit Facility Commitment Letter at that time; at
that time; however, the deposit is subject to replenishment
requirements as set forth in the Exit Facility Commitment Letter.

Pursuant to the Exit Facility Commitment Letter, the Debtors have
agreed to pay all reasonable fees, costs and expenses of PNC in
connection with, inter alia, (i) legal and business due diligence,
(ii) the preparation, negotiation, execution and delivery of the
Exit Facility Commitment Letter, and (iii) the enforcement of any
of PNC's rights and remedies under the Exit Facility Commitment
Letter, which fees and expenses are payable whether or not the Exit
Facility is consummated.  The Exit Facility Commitment Letter
requires the Debtors to obtain an order of this Court approving the
Debtors' reimbursement obligations with respect to such PNC
Expenses.

Further, the Exit Facility Commitment Letter contains an
exclusivity provision that requires the Debtors to work solely with
PNC in order to consummate the Exit Facility until the Exit
Facility Commitment Letter expires; however, there is a "fiduciary
nut" in that nothing in the Exit facility Commitment Letter shall
require the Debtors or any of their directors or officers (in such
person's capacity as a director or officer) to take any action, or
to refrain from taking any action, to the extent that taking such
action or refraining from taking such action would be inconsistent
with such party's fiduciary obligations under applicable law.  Such
provision is reasonable under the circumstances, including the fact
that the Debtors actively solicited multiple potential lenders
prepetition prior to the execution of the Exit Facility
Commitment Letter.

Finally, the Exit Facility Commitment Letter contains a standard
indemnification provision in favor of PNC, pursuant to which the
Debtors agreed to indemnify and hold harmless PNC and its
affiliates and each of their directors, officers and employees
(each, an "Indemnified Person"), from and against any and all
losses, claims, damages, expenses and liabilities incurred by any
Indemnified Person that arise out of or relate to any investigation
or other proceeding (including any threatened investigation or
litigation or other proceedings and whether or not such Indemnified
Person is a party thereto) relating to the Exit Facility Commitment
Letter, the Exit Facility Term Sheet or the transactions
contemplated thereby, including, without limitation, the reasonable
fees and disbursements of counsel (which fees and disbursements may
include, but are not limited to, reasonable fees and disbursements
of in-house counsel incurred in connection with any of the
foregoing), but excluding any of the foregoing claimed by any
Indemnified Person to the extent incurred by reason of the gross
negligence or willful misconduct of such Indemnified Person as
determined by a final non-appealable judgment of a court of
competent jurisdiction.  PNC also will not be responsible or liable
to the Debtors or any other person for indirect, punitive, or
consequential damages which may be alleged as a result of the Exit
Facility Commitment Letter, the Exit Facility Term Sheet or the
transactions contemplated thereby.

The Exit Facility Commitment Letter expires on the earlier of (a)
July 31, 2017, if substantially final definitive documentation has
not been negotiated between the Debtors and PNC on or prior to such
date (unless otherwise extended in writing by the Debtors and PNC
in their sole discretion); (b) August 31, 2017 (or such later date
as may be agreed in writing by the Debtors and PNC in their sole
discretion), if the Exit Facility has not closed on or before such
date; or (c) upon the closing of the Exit Facility.

The Debtors seek authority to (i) assume the Exit Facility
Commitment Letter, (ii) pay and reimburse the PNC Expenses in
accordance with the terms of the Exit Facility Commitment Letter,
and (iii) indemnify each Indemnified Person (including PNC) in
accordance with the terms of the Exit Facility Commitment Letter.

AMERICAN APPAREL: Travelers Insists Dov Charney Lawsuit Not Covered
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Rick Archer, writing for Bankruptcy Law360, reports that Travelers
Indemnity Co. asked a New York federal court to declare it does not
have to pay the costs Standard General LP incurred defending a
defamation lawsuit by former American Apparel CEO Dov Charney.  The
lawsuit was over an employment issue and not advertising, the
report states, citing Travelers Indemnity.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on May 22, 2017,
Standard General asked to be repaid by Travelers Indemnity for its
defense costs in the defamation lawsuit, complaining that Travelers
Indemnity tried to evade coverage by arguing that the lawsuit
didn't allege advertising injury or that it's barred under an
employment practices exclusion.

American Apparel Inc. is one of the largest apparel manufacturers
in North America, employing 4,700 employees across 3 active
manufacturing facilities, one distribution facility and
approximately 110 retail stores in the United States.  

American Apparel and its affiliates filed for chapter 11
protection in October 2015, confirmed a fully consensual plan of
reorganization in January 2016, and substantially consummated that
plan on Feb. 5, 2016.  Unfortunately, the business turnaround plan
upon which the Debtors' plan of reorganization was premised
failed.

American Apparel LLC, nka APP Windown, LLC, along with five of
its affiliates, again sought bankruptcy protection (Bankr. D. Del.
Lead Case No. 16-12551) on Nov. 14, 2016, with a deal to sell the
assets.  The petitions were signed by Bennett L. Nussbaum, chief
financial officer.

As of the bankruptcy filing, the Debtors estimated assets and
liabilities in the range of $100 million to $500 million each.  As
of the Petition Date, the Debtors had outstanding debt in the
aggregate principal amount of approximately $215 million under
their prepetition credit facility.  Additionally, the Debtors have
guaranteed one of its United Kingdom subsidiaries' obligations
under a $15 million unsecured note due Oct. 15, 2020, court
document shows.

The Debtors have hired Laura Davis Jones, Esq. and James E.

property and certain of their wholesale assets to Gildan Activewear
SRL for approximately $100 million.  The Court approved the sale on
Jan. 12, 2017, and the Sale closed on Feb. 8, 2017.

On Feb. 9, 2017, in accordance with the closing of the sale and the
sale court order, the Debtors filed appropriate documentation to

AMERICAN POWER: Extends Deadline to File Certificate of Designation
-------------------------------------------------------------------
American Power Group Corporation, a Delaware corporation, and the
holders of its Subordinated Contingent Convertible Promissory Notes
entered into an amendment to the Convertible Note Purchase
Agreement dated as of Jan. 27, 2017, under which the Notes were
issued.  Pursuant to this amendment, the Company's obligation to
file the Certificate of Designation of Preferences, Rights and
Limitations of Series E Convertible Preferred Stock with the
Secretary of State of Delaware, has been extended until such time
as written notice is received from the purchasers holding 67% of
the Notes then outstanding requesting the Company to file said
Certificate of Designation.  The Notes will not convert into Series
E Preferred Stock, and the associated common stock purchase
warrants will not be issued to the Note holders, unless and until
the Certificate of Designation is filed in Delaware.  Until such
time as the Notes may convert into equity securities, they will
continue to accrue interest at the rate of 10% per year.

Between June 9 and June 19, 2017, Arrow LLC, an investment vehicle
controlled by Matthew Van Steenwyk, and Associated Private Equity,
an investment vehicle controlled by Neil Braverman, purchased
additional Notes in the aggregate principal amount of $330,000. The
additional Notes were issued pursuant to the Purchase Agreement and
are identical in form and substance to the Notes issued in January
2017.  Messrs. Van Steenwyk and Braverman are members of the
Company's Board of Directors.

Upon the conversion of the Notes into shares of Series E Preferred
Stock, the Company will also issue to each Purchaser Warrants to
purchase ten times that number of shares of common stock into which
such Purchaser's shares of Series E Preferred Stock are initially
convertible, at an initial exercise price of $.10 per share.  The
Warrants will be exercisable for a period of ten years from the
date of issue.

                   About American Power Group

American Power Group's alternative energy subsidiary, American
Power Group, Inc. -- http://www.americanpowergroupinc.com/--
provides a cost-effective patented Turbocharged Natural Gas
conversion technology for vehicular, stationary and off-road mobile
diesel engines.  American Power Group's dual fuel technology is a
unique non-invasive energy enhancement system that converts
existing diesel engines into more efficient and
environmentally friendly engines that have the flexibility to run
on: (1) diesel fuel and liquefied natural gas; (2) diesel fuel and
compressed natural gas; (3) diesel fuel and pipeline or well-head
gas; and (4) diesel fuel and bio-methane, with the flexibility to
return to 100 percent diesel fuel operation at any time.  The
proprietary technology seamlessly displaces up to 80% of the
normal diesel fuel consumption with the average displacement
ranging from 40 percent to 65 percent.  The energized fuel balance
is maintained with a proprietary read-only electronic controller
system ensuring the engines operate at original equipment
manufacturers' specified temperatures and pressures.  Installation
on a wide variety of engine models and end-market applications
require no engine modifications unlike the more expensive invasive
fuel-injected systems in the market.

American Power reported a net loss available to common stockholders
of $10.40 million on $1.86 million of net sales for the year ended
Sept. 30, 2016, compared to a net loss available to common
stockholders of $1.04 million on $2.95 million of net sales for the
year ended Sept. 30, 2015.  As of March 31, 2017, American Power
had $10.33 million in total assets, $11.31 million in total
liabilities and a total stockholders' deficit of $987,272.

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


AMERICAN POWER: Fires CEO Lyle Jensen as Part of Realignment
------------------------------------------------------------
American Power Group Corporation announced a corporate wide
realignment of its strategic direction, reallocation of resources
and reduction in workforce.

Neil Braverman, APG's chairman stated, "Delays in customer orders
resulting from the continuing impact of low priced domestic oil has
forced us to reevaluate how we market our dual fuel technology
given the realities of the marketplace and our access to near term
capital.  Our Board of Directors have made the decision to
terminate our Chief Executive Officer, Lyle Jensen and realign our
business model and overhead structure to better reflect the current
market realities.  Mr. Jensen also resigned from our Board of
Directors.  Chuck Coppa, our CFO has assumed the additional title
of Chief Executive Officer and will be working with a core group of
employees and our Board of Directors to realign our business
model."

Chuck Coppa, APG's CEO/CFO stated, "The true value of APG is the
fact we can deliver our customers a low cost, reliable and proven
emission reduction technology across multiple markets and
geographies.  We believe that by pursuing a less capital (human and
financial) intensive approach of marketing our industry leading
dual fuel technology through licensing relationships or master
distributorships we can leverage our partner's existing market
dominance and resources to allow us to pivot more quickly on
opportunities and open new and larger markets without the need to
expend significant capital resources."  Mr. Coppa noted, "While we
will continue to support, on a cost effective basis our direct sale
approach, we will be focusing our corporate resources towards
situations where we see the quickest opportunities for near term
revenue and for the time being, deferring efforts in areas where we
see the path to revenue realization taking longer than we are
willing to wait."

Mr. Coppa added, "Several holders of our $2.6 million Contingent
Convertible Notes, including entities related to several of our
Board members have agreed to provide additional capital this week
in support of our new approach and have also agreed to defer the
automatic conversion of these notes into the proposed Series E
Preferred Stock until July 27, 2017.  They have also expressed a
willingness to consider modifying their existing terms to
accommodate and support management's immediate effort to secure
additional capital on less dilutive terms."

Mario Blanco, APG's vice president of International Sales stated,
"Latin America, particularly Mexico, represents an immediate
opportunity for us on multiple levels given the significant and
immediate economic and emission benefits associated with using
natural gas in lieu of diesel.  In January 2017, the Mexican
government eliminated certain fuel subsidies for diesel and
gasoline resulting in a 15% - 20% increase in diesel fuel prices
adding to an already very favorable price spread."  Mr. Blanco
added, "Mexican officials report a multi-billion dollar investment
is being made in expanding the natural gas pipeline infrastructure,
adding hundreds of natural gas fueling stations in the next few
years providing us with multiple potential licensee
opportunities."

APPALACHIAN CHRISTIAN: Fitch Keeps BB+ Bond Rating on Watch Neg.
----------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings maintains its Rating Watch Negative on the following
bonds issued by the Health and Educational Facilities Board of the
City of Johnson City, Tennessee on behalf of Appalachian Christian
Village (d/b/a Cornerstone Village) (ACV), which are currently
rated 'BB+':

-- $18.45 million revenue refunding and improvement bonds
    (Appalachian Christian Village), series 2013.

SECURITY

The bonds are secured by a pledge of gross revenues and a mortgage
on certain property of the obligated group, consisting of
Appalachian Christian Village and Appalachian Christian Village
Foundation, Inc. A fully funded debt service reserve fund provides
additional security.

KEY RATING DRIVERS

PROBABLE COVENANT VIOLATION: Based upon its unaudited year-end
disclosure package, ACV is reporting a 0.85x debt service coverage
(DSC) ratio and 112 days cash on hand (DCOH) for fiscal 2017
(unaudited), which would both be in violation of its DSC and
liquidity covenants, respectively. DSC below 1.0x would be a
technical default under its master trust indenture. ACV's DCOH
covenant is 120 days but would not require a consultant call-in nor
is it an event of default for the first violation. ACV is tested on
coverage at its fiscal year-end and on liquidity bi-annually.

IMPROVING FINANCIAL PERFORMANCE: Negative rating action is
currently precluded by ACV's improved financial performance through
the last six months of fiscal 2017 and through one-month of fiscal
2018. One-month interim financial statements (ending April 30,
2017) demonstrate a 93% operating ratio, 8.9% net operating margin,
1.5x maximum annual debt service (MADS) coverage, and 1.3x
revenue-only coverage which all compare favorably to Fitch's below
investment grade medians. The improved financial performance is
attributed to ACV's skilled nursing (SN) investment in 2016,
whereby ACV upgraded 39 SN beds to enable the provision of
ventilator care services in these rooms. These ventilator services
came online in November 2016 and allow for higher reimbursement
rates from Medicare.

WEAK LIQUIDITY: ACV's unrestricted cash and investment position
continued to weaken in fiscal 2017 (unaudited) and remains
approximately 27% lower than two years prior. ACV's unrestricted
cash and investment position of $4.9 million translates into 101
DCOH, 3.9x cushion ratio, and 26% cash to debt which all remain
weaker than Fitch's below investment grade medians. ACV's improved
financial performance over the last few months currently mitigates
concerns with its recent liquidity deterioration as improved
operations should help increase liquidity by year-end fiscal 2018.

ILU OCCUPANCY CHALLENGES CONTINUE: Independent living unit (ILU)
occupancy was 75% at March 31, 2017 which is a slight increase from
73% average occupancy in fiscal 2016. Despite the increase in
occupancy, the low ILU occupancy will continue to impact ACV's
financial profile and remains an ongoing challenge for management.

RATING SENSITIVITIES

COVENANT VIOLATION RESOLUTION: Following a release of its audited
financial statements, Appalachian Christian Village (ACV) will
report its official audited debt service coverage and liquidity
covenant calculations. Given ACV's likely covenant violations in
fiscal 2017, Fitch expects to resolve the Rating Watch following
the resolution of the covenant violations which could come in the
form of a consultant call-in, waiver, or an addition remedy.

ARES CAPITAL: Moody's Revises Outlook to Pos. & Affirms Ba1 CFR
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service affirmed the Ba1 corporate family and
senior unsecured ratings of Ares Capital Corporation and changed
the rating outlook to positive from negative.

Ares Capital Corporation:

Corporate Family Rating: affirmed at Ba1, Positive

Outlook changed to Positive from Negative

Allied Capital Corporation:

Senior Unsecured Regular Bond/Debenture: affirmed at Ba1,
Positive

RATINGS RATIONALE

Moody's revised Ares' outlook to positive to reflect the company's
disposition of riskier assets from the acquisition of American
Capital, Ltd. (ACAS), as well as its consistent profitability, low
earnings volatility, and disciplined investment approach.

ACAS' investment portfolio consisted primarily of junior
investments, with only 38% of the portfolio comprised of less risky
senior secured loans at March 31, 2016. Since then, ACAS and Ares
have monetized a substantial number of ACAS' junior investments and
as a result, as of March 31, 2017, Ares' senior secured loans
represented 77% of the investment portfolio, closely aligned with
its pre-acquisition level of 81%. Furthermore, Ares' Asset Coverage
Ratio (ACR) increased to 249% as of March 31, 2017 from 226% at
March 31, 2016, reflecting realizations of the ACAS investments and
Ares' equity issued in connection with the acquisition.

Ares' ability to manage the risks of its levered and illiquid
investments is a key credit consideration. The company's solid risk
management is also reflected in consistent profitability over the
last several years and balanced growth. Ares has lengthened its
operating track record, reinforcing its modest but sustainable
franchise positioning in middle market commercial finance. The
company's business proposition is based on its expertise and
network of relationships with transaction sponsors and other
financial institutions from which it sources lending
opportunities.

The affirmation of Ares' Ba1 corporate family rating reflects the
company's strong earnings and investment portfolio performance,
including during the credit crisis, and its solid funding and
liquidity profile with laddered debt maturities and ample
availability under secured credit facilities. The affirmation also
considers Ares' strong capitalization as a result of the regulatory
leverage requirement for BDCs, which provides substantial loss
protection to the company's lenders.

Ares' ratings could be upgraded if the company continues to
demonstrate strong financial and portfolio performance, as
evidenced by: 1) a sustained Asset Coverage Ratio in the range of
230%-250%; 2) modest concentration of junior investments and the
proportion of senior debt investments equal to at least 75% of the
portfolio on a consistent basis; 3) low earnings volatility through
consistent financial performance, with low level of non-accruals.

The outlook could return to stable if: 1) Ares' Asset Coverage
Ratio drops to below 230% for a sustained period of time; 2) the
proportion of senior debt in Ares' investment portfolio declines to
less than 75%, which would indicate an increase in its risk
appetite; 3) Ares' Net Investment Income is significantly below
dividend distributions on a regular basis; and 4) as a result of a
potential regulatory development that could allow BDCs to maintain
higher leverage.

Ares' ratings could be downgraded if its Asset Coverage Ratio drops
to below 220%, which would result in a high risk of a regulatory
breach and violation of the Asset Coverage Ratio covenant in its
credit facilities, or if the percentage of senior debt in its
investment portfolio drops to below 70%.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Finance
Companies published in December 2016.


ASG CONSOLIDATED: S&P Raises CCR to 'B'; Outlook Stable
-------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings raised the corporate credit rating on parent
company ASG Consolidated Inc. and subsidiary American Seafoods
Group LLC to 'B' from 'B-' and assigned a 'B' corporate credit
rating to Seattle-based ASG Parent LLC.  The outlook is stable.

At the same time, S&P raised the issue-level rating on the
company's $540 million first-lien term loan and $60 million
revolving credit facility due in 2021 to 'BB-' from 'B+', with a
recovery rating of '1', indicating S&P's view that lenders can
expect very high (90%-100%; rounded estimate: 95%) recovery of
principal in the event of payment default.  S&P also raised the
issue-level rating on the company's $200 million second-lien senior
secured term loan maturing in 2022 to 'B-' from 'CCC+', with a
recovery rating of '5', indicating S&P's view that lenders can
expect modest (10%-30%; rounded estimate: 20%) recovery of
principal in the event of a payment default.  

The company had about $711 million in total reported debt
outstanding as of March 31, 2017.

The upgrade reflects ASG's improved operating performance and cash
flow generation, which enabled the company to pay down debt, and
our expectation that the company can at least perform near this
level for the next two years.  Hake and pollock quotas normalized
in 2016 and the company generated over $40 million in FOCF, some of
which was used for debt repayment. Increased EBITDA and the
repayment of debt enabled the company to reduce financial leverage
below 6x in fiscal 2016.  S&P forecasts debt to EBITDA will decline
to near 5x by fiscal 2018.  In addition, as the company continues
to grow EBITDA and repay debt, funds from operations (FFO) to debt
is expected to increase above 10% in 2017 from near 9% in 2016, and
EBITDA coverage of interest is expected to increase to 2.4x in 2017
from 2x in 2016.

The stable outlook reflects S&P's expectation that ASG will
generate about $30 million-$40 million free cash flow, some of
which will be used for debt repayment.  S&P expects the company to
benefit from modest volume growth and a pricing environment that
has been declining but is now showing signs of stabilizing.  That
should enable it to maintain debt to EBITDA near 6x and a 20%
covenant cushion.

S&P could consider lowering the ratings if operating performance
deteriorates and free cash flow does not remain positive, and debt
to EBITDA moves above 7x.  S&P believes this could occur if TAC
meaningfully declines, the company cannot fill its TAC allocation,
or product price declines and rising fuel costs lead to EBITDA
margin erosion of more than 250 basis points.

Although unlikely, S&P could consider raising the ratings if the
company sustains stronger operating performance and leverage well
below 5x.  S&P estimates this may occur in a scenario of
high-single-digit percentage EBITDA growth, resulting from
significant increases in volumes and a pricing environment that has
been declining but is showing signs of stabilizing.  Given its
financial sponsor ownership, we believe if leverage falls below 5x
the company's cash flow would be diverted from debt repayment to
investing in the business or for dividends.


ATLANTIC CITY EDUCATION BOARD: S&P Hikes GO Bonds Rating to BB
--------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings raised its rating on Atlantic City Board of
Education, N.J.'s general obligation (GO) bonds outstanding to 'BB'
from 'BB-'.  The outlook is stable.

"The upgrade reflects our view of improved near-term liquidity and
less financial pressure following continued support from the State
of New Jersey; the $54.6 million in overall aid received in fiscal
2016 was a significant 69% increase over 2015," said S&P Global
Ratings credit analyst Anne Cosgrove.  In that year, the board
received $20 million in additional transitional aid from the state.
Additional state aid increased a further 60% in fiscal 2017 to $32
million in the form of commercial valuation stabilization aid.  The
state has included $32 million in commercial valuation
stabilization aid in the governor's recommended budget (which is
still subject to legislative approval) for fiscal year 2017-2018;
however, this aid is not a committed funding source and is subject
to appropriation by the state.  In addition, the district expects
to receive its portion of payments in lieu of taxes (PILOT).  The
district continues to make significant expenditure cuts that have
helped offset some of the overall revenue decline.  The
municipality's demonstrated guarantee of the district's tax levy,
as the Department of Education lawsuit against the city
highlighted, provides further stability.

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

   -- Low wealth and income levels when compared with state and
      national averages, yet extremely strong per capita market
      value levels given the casino/resort concentration;

   -- The continued uncertainty regarding revenue flow to the
      district from the city, which has been late, but consistent,

      in recent years and introduces some liquidity risk;

   -- Significant reliance on state commercial valuation aid and
      other state aid, which is subject to appropriation;

   -- A weak area economy, which is concentrated in the
      casino/resort sector and has suffered sizable employment and

      tax base losses.  Significant and ongoing tax appeals, which

      continue to pressure the city's finances and have
      historically had a negative effect on the district's timely
      receipt of operating revenue, exacerbate those losses; and

   -- An overall debt burden that S&P considers high per capita,
      and moderate as a percentage of market value.

The increased amount of state aid in fiscal years 2017 and 2018 and
reduction in near-term uncertainty regarding liquidity and
financial metrics partially offset these factors.

The board serves an estimated population of 38,659.  Median
household and per capita effective buying incomes in the district
are low at 50% and 55% of national levels, respectively.  Market
value totaled $7.4 billion in 2017, which S&P considers extremely
strong at $192,669 per capita.  From 2015 to 2017 (the most recent
year for which data are available), assessed value has decreased
42.2% to $6.5 billion.  Roughly 85.7% of assessed value comes from
the 10 largest taxpayers, representing a concentrated tax base, in
S&P's opinion.

The stable outlook reflects the district's increased state aid and
S&P's view of ample liquidity within the two-year outlook horizon.
The outlook also reflects the district's strong fund balance and
our expectation of continued state aid over the two-year outlook
period.

If the district experiences budgetary or liquidity pressures from
decreased state aid or significant revenue declines and the total
fund balance decreases, S&P could lower the rating.

If the district's operating environment improves and the economy
stabilizes, S&P could raise the rating.


AYTU BIOSCIENCE: Signs Two-Year Employment Agreement with CFO
-------------------------------------------------------------
Aytu Bioscience, Inc. entered into an employment agreement with
Gregory A. Gould, effective June 16, 2017, to serve as the
Company's chief financial officer.  Mr. Gould has been serving as
the Company's chief financial officer on a part-time basis since
April 2015.

The agreement is identical to the two-year employment agreement
entered into effective April 16, 2017, with Jarrett Disbrow, the
Company's chief operating officer, except for the position that Mr.
Gould is to occupy.

The agreement is for a term of 24 months beginning on June 16,
2017, subject to termination by the Company with or without Cause
or as a result of  Mr. Gould's disability, or by Mr. Gould with or
without Good Reason.  Mr. Gould is entitled to receive $250,000 in
annual salary, plus a discretionary performance bonus with a target
of 125% of his base salary, based on his individual achievements
and company performance objectives established by the board or the
compensation committee in consultation with Mr. Gould.  Mr. Gould
is also eligible to participate in the benefit plans maintained by
the Company from time to time, subject to the terms and conditions
of those plans.

The Company agreed to issue to Mr. Gould on or promptly after Aug.
1, 2017, stock options to purchase shares of the Company's common
stock in an amount agreed upon by the Company and Mr. Gould, and
commensurate with Mr. Gould's role as a senior executive at the
company.  The exercise price will be the last sale price of the
Company's common stock as reported during the period immediately
preceding the date of grant, and in accordance with the Company's
2015 Stock Option and Incentive Plan, and will vest as follows: 50%
will vest on the date of grant; 25% will vest 365 days after the
date of grant; and 25% will vest 730 days after the date of grant.
All such options will vest in full upon a Change in Control, death,
disability, or termination with or without Cause or for Good
Reason.

In the event Mr. Gould's employment is terminated without Cause by
the Company or Mr. Gould terminates his employment with Good
Reason, the Company will be obligated to pay him any accrued
compensation and a lump sum payment equal to two times his base
salary in effect at the date of termination, as well as continued
participation in its health and welfare plans for up to two years.
All vested stock options will remain exercisable from the date of
termination until the expiration date of the applicable award.  So
long as a Change in Control is not in effect, then all options
which are unvested at the date of termination without Cause or for
Good Reason shall be accelerated as of the date of termination such
that the number of option shares equal to 1/24th the number of
option shares multiplied by the number of full months of Mr.
Gould's employment will be deemed vested and immediately
exercisable by Mr. Gould.  Any unvested options over and above the
foregoing will be cancelled and of no further force or effect, and
will not be exercisable by Mr. Gould.

In the event of a Change in Control, all stock options, restricted
stock and other stock-based grants granted or may be granted in the
future by us to Mr. Gould will immediately vest and become
exercisable and all restrictions thereon will lapse.

industry for over 20 years.  Prior to joining Aytu BioScience on a
full-time basis, he split his time between Aytu and Ampio
Pharmaceuticals, Inc. from April 2015 until June 2017. Prior to
joining Ampio Pharmaceuticals in June 2014, he provided financial
and operational consulting services to the biotech industry through
his consulting company, Gould, LLC.  Mr. Gould was chief financial
officer, treasurer and secretary of SeraCare Life Sciences from
November 2006 until the company was sold to Linden Capital Partners
in April 2012.  During the period from July 2011 until April 2012,
Mr. Gould also served as the Interim President and chief executive
officer of SeraCare.  Mr. Gould has held several other executive
positions at publicly traded life sciences companies including the
chief financial officer role at Atrix Laboratories, Inc., an
emerging specialty pharmaceutical company focused on advanced drug
delivery.  During Mr. Gould's tenure at Atrix, he was instrumental
in the negotiation and sale of the company to QLT, Inc.  He also
played a critical role in the management of several licensing
agreements including the global licensing agreement with
Sanofi-Synthelabo of the Eligard® product line.  Mr. Gould was the
chief financial officer at Colorado MedTech, Inc., a publicly
traded medical device design and manufacturing company, where he
negotiated the transaction to sell the company to KRG Capital
Partners.  Mr. Gould began his career as an auditor with Arthur
Andersen, LLP.  He currently serves on the board of directors of

B & B METALS: Selling Loader for $35K to Pay Adequate Protection
----------------------------------------------------------------
B & B Metals, Inc., asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Central
District of Illinois to authorize the sale of 1999 John Deere 624
loader for $35,000.

The Debtor is the owner of the loader.  Creditor, Triumph Community
Bank has a perfected security interest in the loader.

The Debtor, for the purposes of an effective reorganization and to
provide adequate protection payments to Triumph, proposes to sell
the collateral free and clear of all liens for the sum of $35,000.

Triumph has acknowledged that the sale price amounts to fair market
value for the loader.  Once sold, the entire net proceeds of the
sale will be paid to Triumph to provide adequate protection for the
bank to allow the Debtor to move forward in its Chapter 11 toward
reorganization.

Although the plan has yet to be filed, the Debtor intends that this
be the first step toward reorganization.  However, it cannot wait
for a plan to be submitted and adjudicated before taking the action
due to the requirement of providing adequate protection to the
secured creditor.

No unsecured creditors will be harmed by the sale and distribution
of the proceeds as set forth as the debt owed Triumph exceeds the
fair market value of the loader and they have perfected their
security interest in the loader.  No value could possibly be
received from the loader sale which could benefit unsecured
creditors.

The Debtor will submit a report to the Court following the sale
demonstrating that the terms of the Motion were followed.

                        About B & B Metals
   
B & B Metals, Inc., sought Chapter 11 protection (Bankr. C.D. Ill.
Case No. 17-80859) on June 9, 2017.  The petition was signed by
Larry Beam, President.  The Debtor estimated assets in the range of
$50,001 to $100,000 and $100,001 to $500,000 in debt.  The Debtor
tapped Justin Raver, Esq., at Barash & Everett, LLC as counsel.


BAMBI HERRERA-EDWARDS: Entitled to $55K Judgment Against Eric Moore
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Judge K. Rodney May of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Middle
District of Florida, Tampa Division, again concluded that Debtor
Bambi Alicia Herrera-Edwards is entitled to a money judgment for
Eric Moore's unjust enrichment.

The Debtor filed an adversary proceeding on March 14, 2014.  Count
I sought relief for fraud in the inducement.  Count II set forth
her claim for recovery for unjust enrichment, alleging that she had
never received any recovery as a direct result of Mr. Moore's
services, and that he harassed and threatened the Plaintiff until
she made a payment of approximately $45,000.  Mr. Moore did not
file an objection to entry of final judgment by the bankruptcy
court.  Instead, he filed an answer, on April 15, 2014, denying the
allegations in Counts I and II, asking for a trial on those
allegations, and stating affirmative defenses.

On Jan. 29, 2015, the Court issued a written opinion, consistent
with an earlier bench ruling, stating that the Debtor and her
royalty income were targeted by Mr. Moore and that he used false
pretenses to induce her to sign the Consulting Agreement.  In
addition, the Court concluded that it was the Debtor's lawyers, not
Mr. Moore, who had caused ASCAP to release $265,000 from escrow.
Thus, Mr. Moore was not entitled to a 17% fee, even if the
Consulting Agreement was enforceable.  Accordingly, Mr. Moore had
been unjustly enriched by the $45,000 payment.

This adversary proceeding is before the Court after remand from the
District Court, which vacated the Court's entry of a $44,953.93
judgment against pro se Defendant Mr. Moore.  The Court initially
ruled that Mr. Moore had fraudulently induced the Debtor to enter
into a Consulting Agreement, dated July 11, 2012.  Thus, the
Consulting Agreement was void and unenforceable.  But, even if that
agreement was valid, Mr. Moore was not entitled to a 17% fee on
funds released to the Debtor from escrow shortly before her Chapter
11 case was filed.  The Court's judgment was for $44,953.93, plus
prejudgment interest.  All of Mr. Moore's claims against the estate
were disallowed (exceeding $10 million).

The District Court affirmed the disallowance of Mr. Moore's claims,
but vacated the money judgment.  It remanded that piece of the
lawsuit, with instructions that the Court consider three issues:
(i) whether the Debtor was fraudulently induced to enter into the
Consulting Agreement because of Mr. Moore's failure to disclose his
1999 fraud conviction, as pleaded in Debtor's complaint; (ii)
whether the Debtor's unjust enrichment claim was barred because she
had an adequate remedy at law; and (iii) whether the Court had the
authority to enter a money judgment on the state law claims of
fraud in the inducement and unjust enrichment in light of Stern v.
Marwill.  In response, the Debtor and Mr. Moore have filed
additional papers and have presented their positions in oral
argument.

Mr. Moore procured the Debtor's execution of the Consulting
Agreement through actual falsehood and material omission.  He
promised a quick recovery of $500,000, an unpleaded fact which he
later introduced into the record.  He provided only an edited
portrait of his background, including his confidential work for
high-profile people in the music industry, to build a relationship
of trust with the Debtor.  Thus, he had a duty to disclose another
material piece of his background, the 1999 grand larceny
conviction.

Mr. Moore did not cause ASCAP to release $265,000 from escrow.
Nevertheless, he repeatedly demanded that the Debtor pay a 17% fee
on those funds.  He was unjustly enriched by receipt of that
payment, but she has no legal remedy.

The Court again concluded that it is appropriate to enter judgment
for unjust enrichment against Mr. Moore in the principal sum of
$44,953.93, together with prejudgment interest from Sept. 7, 2012
at the rate of 5.05% in the amount of $10,859.51, totaling
$55,813.44, on which interest will accrue at the federal rate.  The
Court has authority to enter the judgment because the Debtor's
claim for recovery was necessarily resolved in the adjudication of
Mr. Moore's claims against the estate.  Further, Mr. Moore is
deemed to have consented to the Court's entry of a final judgment
by his failure to timely raise the issue.  Accordingly, a Final
Judgment is due to be entered.  Nevertheless, to the extent
necessary and appropriate, the ruling will be deemed to be a report
and recommendation to the District Court.

Plaintiff, v. ERIC MOORE, Defendant, Adv. No. 8:14-ap-247-KRM (M.D.
Fla.).

BELLATRIX EXPLORATION: Moody's Hikes Corporate Family Rating to B3
------------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service upgraded Bellatrix Exploration Ltd.'s
Corporate Family Rating (CFR) to B3 from Caa1, the Probability of
Default Rating to B3-PD from Caa1-PD and senior unsecured notes
rating to Caa1 from Caa2. The Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating
was upgraded to SGL-3 from SGL-4. The rating outlook was changed to
stable from negative.

"Bellatrix's upgrade reflects improved liquidity with the extension
and increase of its revolving credit facilities," said Paresh
Chari, Moody's AVP-Analyst. "In addition, credit metrics will
improve driven by growth in production, lower operating costs and
solid hedges.

Upgrades:

Issuer: Bellatrix Exploration Ltd.

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

-- Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating, Upgraded to SGL-3 from
    SGL-4

-- Corporate Family Rating, Upgraded to B3 from Caa1

-- Senior Unsecured Regular Bond/Debenture, Upgraded to
    Caa1(LGD4) from Caa2(LGD5)

Outlook Actions:

Issuer: Bellatrix Exploration Ltd.

-- Outlook, Changed To Stable From Negative

RATINGS RATIONALE

Bellatrix's B3 CFR reflects adequate liquidity (SGL-3), sizeable
production base of 33,000 boe/d, improving expected leverage in
2017 and 2018 (debt to EBITDA below 4x, retained cash flow to debt
around 20%), EBITDA/interest coverage above 3x over the same period
and improving leveraged full-cycle ratio (LFCR) towards 1x in 2018.
The rating also reflects the concentration in the Deep Basin play
in western Alberta and significant expected negative free cash flow
in 2017 and 2018 under Moody's price estimates.

The SGL-3 Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating reflects adequate
liquidity through the second quarter of 2018. At March 31, 2017 and
pro forma for the borrowing base increase and C$35 million June
asset sale, Bellatrix had no cash and close to full availability
under its C$120 million borrowing base revolver with the credit
facilities available on a revolving basis with the next renewal due
on or before May 2018 and if not renewed then the facilities would
mature and be due one year later. Moody's expects C$30 million of
negative free cash flow through the second quarter of 2018.
Bellatrix is expected to remain in compliance with its sole
financial covenant (Senior Debt to EBITDA less than 3.0x) through
this period. Bellatrix also has the flexibility to raise funds by
selling its remaining midstream assets.

In accordance with Moody's Loss Given Default (LGD) Methodology,
Bellatrix's US$250 million unsecured notes are rated Caa1, one
notch below the B3 CFR, reflecting the priority ranking of the
senior secured credit facilities relative to the unsecured notes.

The stable outlook reflects Moody's expectations that liquidity
will remain adequate and leverage will remain steady through 2018.

The ratings could be upgraded if retained cash flow to debt is
likely to remain around 20% (11% at 3/31/2017), LFCR is above 1x
(0.2x at 3/31/2017), and if adequate liquidity is maintained.

The ratings could be downgraded if liquidity worsens, retained cash
flow to debt falls below 10% and if LFCR stays below 1x.

Bellatrix is a Calgary, Alberta-based independent exploration and
production (E&P) company with operations in the Deep Basin play in
west central Alberta producing about 33,000 boe/d net of royalties
(barrel of oil equivalent), about 70% of which is natural gas.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Independent
Exploration and Production Industry published in May 2017.


BRAZIL MINERALS: Incurs $274,000 Net Loss in First Quarter
----------------------------------------------------------
Brazil Minerals, Inc., filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q disclosing a net loss
of $274,382 on $3,396 of revenue for the three months ended March
31, 2017, compared to a net loss of $290,608 on $2,556 of revenue
for the three months ended March 31, 2016.

As of March 31, 2017, Brazil Minerals had $1.23 million in total
assets, $1.32 million in total liabilities, and a total
stockholders' deficit of $90,228.

As of March 31, 2017, the Company had total current assets of
$169,416 compared to total current liabilities of $1,127,458 for a
current ratio of 0.15 to 1 and working capital of ($958,042).  By
comparison, on March 31, 2016, the Company had total current assets
of $223,471 compared to current liabilities of $1,364,807 for a
current ratio of 0.16 to 1 and working capital of ($1,141,336).  On
an absolute basis, the relative improvement in working capital is
primarily attributable to the decrease in outstanding convertible
notes and other short-term obligations.

In the first quarter of 2017, the Company's principal sources of
liquidity were the issuance of equity and debt securities.  In the
first quarter of 2016, the Company's principal sources of liquidity
had been issuances of equity and debt securities.  During the first
quarter of 2017, the Company received an aggregate of $26,000 in
gross proceeds from the sale of common stock.

"We believe that financial resources and funds generated from
revenues, and equity and debt sales will provide cash flow for
operations.  We have no plans for any significant cash acquisitions
in 2017 or in the foreseeable future," the Company stated in the
report.

BROWN MEDICAL: Bid to Omit McCormack Testimony Denied
-----------------------------------------------------
Judge Nancy F. Atlas of the U.S. District Court for the Southern
District of Texas, Houston Division, denied Elizabeth Guffy's
Motion to Exclude the Opinions and Testimony of James M.
McCormack.

Michael Brown, the owner of 100% of the shares of Debtor Brown
Medical Center, Inc., was represented by attorneys DeGuerin and
others in connection with criminal cases against him, including
prosecutions for assault and for having a marijuana field on his
property.  Plaintiff Guffy alleges that BMC transferred funds to
DeGuerin after it became insolvent.  She alleges that BMC had no
independent legal obligation to make the transfers, which were for
Brown's sole benefit.

In January 2013, Brown filed a voluntary Chapter 11 bankruptcy
petition.  On Oct. 15, 2013, his Chapter 11 Trustee filed a
voluntary Chapter 11 bankruptcy petition on behalf of BMC.  The
Bankruptcy Court appointed Guffy as the Chapter 11 Trustee for BMC.
On Oct. 1, 2014, the Bankruptcy Court confirmed a plan of
liquidation in BMC's bankruptcy case and appointed Guffy as the
Plan Agent.

The Plaintiff filed an Adversary Proceeding, asserting fraudulent
transfer claims under 11 U.S.C. Section 548(a)(1)(B) and under
TUFTA.  By Memorandum and Order entered Feb. 3, 2016, the Court
withdrew the reference of the Adversary Proceeding and retained the
case on its own docket.

DeGuerin has designated James M. McCormack as an expert witness in
this case.  McCormack has issued a written report, a rebuttal
report, and he has been deposed.  McCormack opines that there was
an attorney-client relationship between DeGuerin and BMC, and that
funds provided to DeGuerin and maintained in DeGuerin's IOLTA2
Trust Account remained the property of BMC.  The Plan Agent filed
her Motion to Exclude arguing that McCormack is not qualified to
provide opinion testimony in this case because he has no expertise
in the area of "fraudulent transfers."  

The Court held, "Whether or not that argument is correct, McCormack
is not offering opinions on whether DeGuerin received fraudulent
transfers.  Instead, he is offering opinion testimony on two
discrete factual issues on which he is clearly qualified.
McCormack's opinion is based on his review of evidence in the
record in light of his experience and the Texas Disciplinary Rules
of Professional Conduct.  It is relevant, sufficiently reliable,
and likely to assist the trier of fact.  His opinion does not
invade the province of the judge and jury because it is not a pure
legal conclusion and does not instruct the jury how to decide the
ultimate question before it regarding Plaintiff's fraudulent
transfer claims.  The Court finds at this stage that McCormack's
opinion regarding the existence of an attorney-client relationship
between DeGuerin and BMC is relevant, reliable, and likely to
assist the trier of fact.  Hence, McCormack is qualified to provide
the opinions he offers, and his expert opinions and testimony
satisfy the requirements of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure
and relevant legal authorities.  Accordingly, the Court denied the
Plan Agent's Motion to Exclude."

The case is ELIZABETH M. GUFFY, Plan Agent, Plaintiff, v. DICK
DEGUERIN, et al., Defendants, Civil Action No. 16-0043 (S.D.
Tex.).

BUCKTAIL MEDICAL: Hearing on Plan Outline Set for July 11
---------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania
is set to hold a hearing on July 11, at 11:00 a.m., to consider
approval of the disclosure statement, which explains the proposed
Chapter 11 plan of reorganization for The Bucktail Medical Center.

The hearing will take place at the Max Rosenn US Courthouse,
Courtroom 2, 197 South Main Street, Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.  

Under the proposed plan, creditors holding Class 16 general
unsecured claims will be paid 5% of their claims allowed by the
court.  General unsecured creditors will receive a one-time
payment, however, the total distribution is "capped" at $60,000.

If Bucktail is successful in having the Class 3, 4 and 5 claims
reclassified as general unsecured claims, the allowed Class 16
claims could reach $1,273,233.21.  If so, the projected 5%
distribution would not occur as that would require $63,661.61.  As
such, the projected distribution of the $60,000 would result in a
distribution of 4.71% rather than 5%, according to Bucktail's
latest disclosure statement.

Class 3, 4 and 5 claims consist of judicial liens of Encore
Rehabilitation Services LLC, W.W. Grainger, Inc. and Craneware
Inc.

CCO HOLDING: Fitch Rates New Senior Unsecured Notes Due 2028 BB+
----------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has assigned a 'BB+' rating to CCO Holding, LLC's
(CCOH) proposed issuance of senior unsecured notes due 2028. CCOH
is an indirect, wholly owned subsidiary of Charter Communications,
Inc. (Charter). CCOH's Issuer Default Rating (IDR) is currently
'BB+' with a Stable Outlook.

The company is expected to use net proceeds to pay related fees and
expenses and for general corporate purposes, including potential
buybacks of Class A common stock of Charter Communications, Inc.
(Charter) or common units of Charter Communications Holdings, LLC
(CCH), a subsidiary of Charter. As of March 31, 2017, Charter had
$1.9 billion available under its Class A common stock buyback
program, an amount that excludes any potential buybacks of CCH
common units. Pro forma for debt issuance in April 2017 and
subsequent note repurchases, Charter had approximately $61.8
billion of debt outstanding as of March 31, 2017, including $45.9
billion of senior secured debt.

The issuance is in line with Fitch's expectation that Charter will
issue debt using additional debt capacity created primarily through
EBITDA growth. Proceeds from future prospective debt issuances
issued under additional debt capacity created are expected to be
used for investment in the business, accretive acquisitions and
shareholder returns. Charter management has stated it plans to
target the low end of its target leverage range of 4x to 4.5x.

KEY RATING DRIVERS

M&A Activity Credit-Positive: In May 2016, Charter completed its
merger with Time Warner Cable and acquisition of Bright House
Networks (the Transactions). Fitch continues to view the
Transactions positively and believes they strengthen Charter's
overall credit profile. Fitch estimates that on a pro forma basis
for the last 12 months (LTM) ended March 31, 2017, including a full
year of the Transactions and recent debt issuances and redemptions,
total leverage was 4.2x while senior secured leverage was 3.1x.

Integration Key to Success: Charter's ability to continue managing
the simultaneous integration of two transactions and limit
disruption to its overall operations is critical. Charter is also
managing the transition to all-digital services and the
introduction of its interactive IP-based video user interface
across the TWC and Bright House systems. Similar efforts in their
legacy systems boosted ARPU and accelerated growth in revenue,
EBITDA margin and FCF.

Credit Profile Changes: As of March 31, 2017, Charter served 25.1
million residential customers and is the country's second largest
cable multiple-system operator. Pro forma LTM revenue and EBITDA
totalled approximately $40.5 billion and $14.7 billion,
respectively. Charter's pro forma total leverage and senior secured
leverage have declined since peaking at 4.4x and 3.5x,
respectively, at June 30, 2016. The decline was driven primarily by
EBITDA growth as Charter benefited from ongoing operating
improvements.

Improving Operating Momentum: Charter's operating strategies are
having a positive impact on the company's operating profile,
resulting in a strengthened competitive position. The
market-share-driven strategy, which is focused on enhancing the
overall competitiveness of Charter's video service and leveraging
its all-digital infrastructure, is improving subscriber metrics,
growing revenue and average revenue per unit (ARPU) trends, and
stabilizing operating margins.

Debt Capacity Growth: Charter management has stated it plans to
target the low end of its target leverage range of 4x to 4.5x.
Fitch expects Charter to continue to create additional debt
capacity and remain within its target leverage primarily through
EBITDA growth. Proceeds from prospective debt issuances under
additional debt capacity created are expected to be used for
investment in the business, accretive acquisitions and shareholder
returns.

KEY ASSUMPTIONS

Fitch's key assumptions within the rating case include:

-- Mid-single-digit pro forma revenue growth highlighted by
continued high-speed data and commercial service revenue growth.

-- Pro forma EBITDA margin improves as ARPU growth from
subscribers taking more advanced video services and higher-speed
data service tiers offsets increased programming costs and spending
to enhance customer service and products.

-- Fitch estimates Charter will generate more than $4 billion of
free cash flow (FCF) in 2017.

RATING SENSITIVITIES

Positive rating actions would be contemplated given the following:

-- Integrating TWC and Bright House while limiting disruption in
the company's overall operations;

-- Demonstrating continued progress in closing gaps relative to
its industry peers in service penetration rates and strategic
bandwidth initiatives;

-- Operating profile strengthens as the company captures
sustainable revenue and cash flow growth envisioned when
implementing the current operating strategy;

-- Reduction and maintenance of total leverage below 4.0x.

Fitch believes negative rating actions would likely occur given the
following:

-- A leveraging transaction or the adoption of a more aggressive
financial strategy that increases leverage beyond 5.5x in the
absence of a credible deleveraging plan;

-- Adoption of a more aggressive financial strategy;

-- A perceived weakening of Charter's competitive position or
failure of the current operating strategy to produce sustainable
revenue and cash flow growth along with strengthening operating
margins.

LIQUIDITY

Fitch regards Charter's liquidity position and overall financial
flexibility as satisfactory given the rating category. Charter's
financial flexibility will improve in step with the growth of FCF
generation following the completion of the transactions. Charter
generated $3.7 billion of FCF during the LTM ended March 31, 2017
and Fitch expects Charter to generate more than $4 billion in
2017.

The company's liquidity position at March 31, 2017 includes cash of
$2.7 billion and is supported by $2.8 billion of borrowing capacity
from its $3 billion revolver, which expires in May 2021, and
anticipated FCF generation. Charter's pro forma maturity profile is
manageable with less than 10% of outstanding debt maturing before
2020 including $148 million in 2017, $2.2 billion in 2018, and $3.5
billion in 2019. Fitch believes that Charter has the financial
flexibility to retire near-term maturities with cash on hand and
future FCF.

CELL C: Files U.S. Chapter 15 to Fend Off Disgruntled Creditors
---------------------------------------------------------------
Cell C Proprietary Limited, the third largest of four mobile
network operators in South Africa, filed a Chapter 15 petition in
New York to seek recognition of its restructuring proceedings in
South Africa and stop what it claims to be a small minority of
disgruntled creditors from interfering in the proceedings.

Cell C commenced Section 155 proceedings under the South African
Companies Act 71 of 2008 to seek approval of an "arrangement" or
"compromise" that provides for a two-fold restructuring:

   1. First, the debt restructure reduces Cell C's financial
indebtedness (mainly denominated in foreign currency and
consequently exposed to currency fluctuations) from a level of
approximately R24 billion to approximately R6 billion and, it also
introduces fresh capital into the business through Blue Label and
Net 1 UEPS Technologies Inc. ("Net 1") as equity partners in Cell
C.  The reduction in Cell C's borrowings is required to provide
financial sustainability and operational flexibility.

   2. Second, under the equity restructure, Blue Label Telecoms
Limited ("Blue Label") will acquire a 45% equity stake in Cell C
(in exchange for new capital of R5.5 billion) and Net 1 will
acquire 15% (in consideration of R2.0 billion).  Staff and
management will acquire 10% of Cell C.  3C Telecommunications, an
existing owner of 100% of the equity in Cell C, will dilute and
subscribe indirectly for new equity of 30% in Cell C through
entities SPV1,8 SPV29 and SPV3.  Following the implementation of
the equity restructure, Cell C will have more than 30% of its
equity interests in the hands of individuals that qualify as BEE
shareholders.

Blue Label is a leading distributor of prepaid airtime, data and
starter packs in South Africa.  Blue Label is part of Cell C
nationwide distribution network for its offering and services.

Cell C's major creditors are China Development Bank Corporation
("CDB"), the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China Limited
("ICBC"), Nedbank Limited ("Nedbank"), Development Bank of Southern
Africa Limited ("DBSA"), and the "Compromise Creditors."

The Compromise Creditors are the holders of the Euro 400,000,000
8.625% first priority senior secured notes due 2018 (the "Euro
Notes") issued by Cell C and identified with ISIN XS0223890251 and
ISIN XS0223890418.  CDB, ICBC, Nedbank and DBSA are not affected by
the Section 155 Proceeding.

"I commenced an ancillary proceeding for the Debtor under chapter
15 of the Bankruptcy Code to obtain recognition of the Section 155
Proceeding.  I believe that this Chapter 15 case will complement
the Debtor's primary proceeding in South Africa to ensure the
effective and economic administration of the Debtor's restructuring
effort.  Indeed, recognition of the Debtor's Section 155 Proceeding
will, among other things, ensure that the Arrangement, as
implemented through the South African Court, and other legal
consequences of the Arrangement, are respected in the United
States.  Moreover, entry of an order recognizing the Section 155
Proceeding is a condition precedent to consummation of the
Restructure," stated Paolo Pianezze, the Executive Head - Legal,
who has been appointed as foreign representative in the Chapter 15
case.

                       Disgruntled Creditors

The Debtor is seeking to propose an arrangement or compromise of
its financial indebtedness to the holders of EUR 400,000,000 8.625%
first priority senior secured notes due in 2008, issued by the
Company.

The Debtor believes it has the support of approximately 98% of the
Compromise Creditors who are affected by the Arrangement and who
are eligible to vote on the Arrangement.

However, according to the Foreign Representative, "The Debtor is
concerned that a small minority of disgruntled Compromise Creditors
may try to interfere with the Section 155 Proceeding.  Accordingly,
emergency provisional relief ("Provisional Relief") is necessary to
prevent parties in interest from the commencement or continuation
of any action or proceeding concerning the assets, rights,
obligations or liabilities of the Debtor, including any action or
proceeding against me in my capacity as foreign representative of
the Debtor, in any courts or tribunals in the United States (other
than in this Chapter 15 case).  A substantial threat of irreparable
injury exists if the Provisional Relief is not issued.  Without
such Provisional Relief, disgruntled Compromise Creditors might
pursue legal actions in courts or tribunals in the United States
(other than in this Chapter 15 case) seeking to affect, interfere
with, disrupt, prejudice, or enjoin, the Section 155 Proceeding.
Such efforts would interfere with the orderly administration of the
Section 155 Proceeding and could hinder any chance for the Section
155 Proceeding to produce a successful outcome.  The Provisional
Relief will benefit the Debtor's creditors by facilitating the
Section 155 Proceeding.  The Debtor is attempting to rehabilitate
by seeking the approval of the Arrangement in the Section 155
Proceeding.  The Debtor's business will be in jeopardy if the
Provisional Relief is not approved.  Accordingly, I seek
Provisional Relief in the form of injunctive relief under Sections
1519 and 105(a) of the Bankruptcy Code, including an injunction
against filing proceedings me, in my capacity as Foreign
Representative of the Debtor, in any court in the United States
(other than this Chapter 15 case) that may affect or interfere with
the Section 155 Proceeding".

                       Road to Proceedings

Cell C actively sought to establish itself as a "consumer champion"
and a "value for money" brand, adopting a transparent and simple
approach to pricing, in an effort to attract low-income price
sensitive consumers and promote the porting of subscribers as a
means for consumers to save money.

Between 2012 and 2015, Cell C pursued aggressive pricing against
its competitors, introducing value offerings and promotions
targeted at further developing its prepaid subscriber base so as to
increase its scale and reach in the South African market. In 2015,
Cell C shifted its focus away from aggressive pricing.

During 2014 it became clear to Cell C that additional equity would
be required in the business.  OTL was unable to provide an equity
injection on its own.  A process, initiated by OTL, headed by
Goldman Sachs and Houlihan Lokey, focused on identifying possible
sources for equity either through an outright disposal of Cell C's
equity or through a combined transaction involving OTL and a new
equity investor.

A thorough due diligence process was conducted by McKinsey
(business plan), KPMG (finance and tax) and Norton Rose Fulbright
South Africa Inc.  Interested parties conducted their own due
diligence, and these included international mobile operators,
private equity funds and various local investors. Ultimately, no
party presented a proposal that would have preserved the value of
Cell C that was acceptable to the Board.

On Nov. 20, 2016, Cell C failed to make a capital payment due to
CDB, an event of default under the related facility agreement that
resulted in cross defaults under other facilities with ICBC,
Nedbank and DBSA.  On Jan. 1, 2017, Cell C failed to pay an
interest payment due to the Compromise Creditors.

As a consequence of the above events, Cell C's corporate credit
rating was downgraded from CC, highly vulnerable to non-payment, to
"D", junk status, by S&P Global Rating in early February 2017. This
downgrade rendered it almost impossible, by virtue of any capital
raising becoming very expensive, for Cell C to return to the bond
market to raise capital.

Cell C has since continued to run its ordinary course of business
and operations and meet its obligations to its staff and most of
its trade suppliers and creditors.

                     Section 155 Proceeding

The Debtor is based in the Republic of South Africa.  The South
African Companies Act 71 of 2008 provides at its Section 155 for a
process to approve an "arrangement" or "compromise" that may affect
some or all of a debtor's creditors. In a Section 155 proceeding,
the debtor proposes an arrangement to its affected creditors, the
creditors vote on the arrangement, and if the requisite votes are
obtained, the debtor petitions the High Court of South Africa for a
"Sanction Order" approving, or "sanctioning," the arrangement.
This process shall be called the "Section 155 Proceeding."

On June 21, 2017, the Debtor issued the Board Resolutions naming me
as the "foreign representative" as defined in section 101(24) of
the Bankruptcy Code for purposes of the Debtor's Section 155
Proceeding, and authorizing Paolo Pianezze to file the Chapter 15
case in the United States.

On June 21, 2017, the Debtor sent out to its creditors a "Notice of
the Compromise Creditors Meeting," providing notice to creditors of
a "Compromise Creditors Meeting" pursuant to Section 155 of the
Companies Act to approve of the Arrangement.  The Notice of the
Compromise Creditors Meeting commenced the Debtor's Section 155
Proceeding.  The Compromise Creditors Meeting is scheduled for June
28.

If the Compromise Creditors vote in favor of the Arrangement, the
Debtor will petition the South
African Court for a Sanction Order approving of the Arrangement.
Subject to the approval of the Registrar of the Johannesburg High
Court, the Debtor expects that a hearing to approve the Arrangement
will be held in the South African Court on or about July 18, 2017.
The Debtor anticipates that the South African Court will enter the
Sanction Order that same day.

CENTRAL GROCERS: Auction of Strack and Van Til Stores on June 26
----------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware has approved
the bidding procedures in connection with the sale of substantially
all assets of Strack and Van Til, Super Market, Inc. to Jewel Food
Stores, Inc. for the aggregate purchase price of $70,000,000, plus
the cost of inventory at such Strack Stores, estimated to be
approximately $30,000,000, subject to overbid at an auction on June
26, 2017.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on May 15, 2017, the
consummation of sale transactions that will maximize value for the
Debtors' estates and preserve as many jobs of their employees as
possible is the cornerstone of the Debtors' chapter 11 strategy.

The Debtors are seeking to sell substantially all of their assets,
which consist primarily of the grocery stores operated by Strack
under the "Strack & Van Til," "Ultra Foods," and "Town & Country"
banners ("Strack Stores"), including related leasehold interests
and inventory; an over 1,000,000 square foot warehousing and
distribution facility located in Joliet, Illinois ("Distribution
Center"); and other real property owned by the Debtors.  To that
end, they have secured the Stalking Horse Bid from the Stalking
Horse Bidder for the sale of 19 Strack Stores, for the purchase
price.

In December 2016, the Debtors initiated a comprehensive marketing
process to sell the Company as a going concern or to consummate
another strategic, value-maximizing transaction that would resolve
the Company's operational and financial challenges.  To that end,
the Company retained Peter J. Solomon Co., LLC ("PJSC") to serve as
its investment banker and to design and execute an "M&A" process.
PJSC solicited interest from parties in consummating a strategic
transaction with the Company, either through a merger or a sale.

By the end of January 2017, the Company had received six bids for
overlapping and non-overlapping Assets, including certain of the
Strack Stores, the Distribution Center, related inventory, and
other real and personal property.  After extensive deliberations
with its advisors and Prepetition Secured Lenders and several
rounds of negotiations with bidders, the Company elected to pursue
the Stalking Horse Bid for the sale of 19 Strack Stores and related
inventory.

Appreciating their challenging financial condition and the tight
timeline that likely would govern the postpetition sale process
under the Debtors' DIP Financing, the Debtors accomplished as much
as possible prior to the commencement of these cases.  With the
Stalking Horse Bid in place, the Debtors are prepared to execute
the last leg of their sale process, which will include a
postpetition marketing campaign, consistent with the terms of the
Stalking Horse Agreement and the Bidding Procedures.

Contemporaneously with the Sale Motion, the Debtors have filed a
motion seeking approval of DIP Financing provided by certain of
their Prepetition Secured Lenders ("DIP Lenders").  Although they
expect that access to the DIP Financing, together with the use of
cash collateral, will provide them with sufficient runway to
consummate value-maximizing Sale Transactions for substantially all
of their Assets, it cannot be overemphasized that time is of the
essence.  Given the significant costs associated with the ongoing
operations of the Debtors' businesses and their current financial
condition, the DIP Lenders have established strict Milestones for
the Debtors' sale process.

Specifically, the Debtors and the DIP Lenders have agreed to,
among
others, these milestones:

a. On May 12, 2017, the Debtors will file with the Court a bidding
procedures motion for the sale of all or substantially all of the
assets of Strack and its Debtor subsidiaries together with bidding
procedures;

b. On May 17, 2017, the Debtors will execute an asset purchase
agreement, in form and substance acceptable to the agent under the
DIP Financing facility ("DIP Agent"), evidencing a sale of all or
substantially all of the assets of Strack and its Debtors
subsidiaries to a purchaser acceptable to the DIP Agent and the
Required Lenders, subject to the receipt of higher or better bids;

c. The Court will have entered the Bidding Procedures Order by the
date that is 30 calendar days after the Commencement Date;

d. The Debtors will commence an auction for the sale of all or
substantially all of the assets of Strack and its Debtors
affiliates in accordance with the Bidding Procedures on or before
the date that is 55 calendar days after the Commencement Date;

e. Within 15 calendar days after the conclusion of the auction, the
Debtors will obtain an order approving the sale of all or
substantially all of the assets of Strack and its Debtor
subsidiaries, which order will provide that the net sale proceeds
will be applied to the DIP Obligations and/or Prepetition Revolving
Obligations, at the DIP Agent's sole discretion; and

f. Closing of the sale of all or substantially all of the assets of
Strack and its Debtor subsidiaries by the date that is (i) 90
calendar days after the entry of the sale order approving such
sale, if the sale is to the Stalking Horse Bidder; or (ii) 30
calendar days after the entry of the sale order approving such
sale, if the sale is to any other buyer approved by the DIP Agent
and Required Lenders.

The Stalking Horse Agreement represents a binding bid for 19 Strack
Stores and related assets, for a total consideration of
$70,000,000, plus the actual cost of inventory at such Strack
Stores at closing.  By the Motion, the Debtors ask for authority to
provide the Stalking Horse Bidder with standard Stalking Horse Bid
Protections.  In particular, the Stalking Horse Agreement provides
for the payment of a (i) a Break-up Fee in an amount equal to 3% of
the purchase price of the Stalking Horse Package; and (ii)
Reimbursement of up to $500,000 for reasonable and documented costs
and expenses incurred by the Stalking Horse Bidder in connection
with the Stalking Horse Agreement and participation in the Auction
and sale process, in each case, in the event that the Debtors
consummate an Alternative Transaction.

The Bidding Procedures establish initial overbid minimum and
subsequent bidding increment requirements and also provide that, if
the Stalking Horse Bidder bids on the Stalking Horse Package at the
Auction, the Stalking Horse Bidder will be entitled to a credit in
the amount of its Termination Payment against the increased
purchase price for the Stalking Horse Package ("Stalking Horse Bid
Protections").

The salient terms of the Stalking Horse Agreement are:

   1. Closing and Other Deadlines:

       i. Initial Closing will take place on the third Business Day
after all conditions in Section 7.1 and Section 7.2 have been
satisfied or waived.  Each subsequent Closing will take place on
the third Business Day after all conditions in Section 7.3 and
Section 7.4 have been satisfied or waived.

      ii. The Debtors and the Stalking Horse Bidder will negotiate
a Closing schedule within ten (10) days after the conclusion of the
Auction.

     iii. If the Initial Closing does not occur prior to Sept. 12,
2017, either the Stalking Horse Bidder or the Debtors may terminate
the Stalking Horse Agreement.  The Debtors may terminate the
Stalking Horse Agreement if the last closing has not occurred
within 90 days after entry of the applicable Sale Order, so long as
(i) the Auction has commenced on June 29, 2017, and (ii) the Court
has entered the applicable Sale Order on July 11, 2017.  The
Debtors may also terminate the Stalking Horse Agreement if the
Deposit Amount is not deposited by the Stalking Horse Bidder within
two Business Days following the Initial Closing.

      iv. The Stalking Horse Bidder may terminate the Agreement
upon the failure of the Debtors to satisfy a series of Bankruptcy
Milestones; specifically: (A) the Court will have entered the
Bidding Procedures Order on June 5, 2017; (B) the will have entered
the applicable Sale Order on July 11, 2017; (C) the Debtors will
have filed a motion seeking approval of DIP Financing acceptable to
the Stalking Horse Bidder on May 15, 2017; (D) the Debtors will
have obtained an interim order approving the DIP Financing on May
22, 2017; (E) the Debtors will have obtained a final order
approving the DIP Financing on June 9, 2017; and (F) the final
order approving the DIP Financing will not have been stayed or
reversed on appeal.

   2. Good Faith Deposit: $25,000,000

   3. Use of Proceeds: If the Termination Payment becomes due and
payable by the Sellers to the Buyer under the Stalking Horse
Agreement, it will be paid from the proceeds of the Alternative
Transaction that triggered the payment to become due.

    4. Requested Findings as to Successor Liability: The Debtors
seek to sell the Acquired Assets to the Stalking Horse Bidder free
and clear of all Liens.  The Stalking Horse Bidder will not have
any derivative, successor, transferee or vicarious Liability for
Liabilities of the Debtors as a result of the transactions
contemplated by the Agreement.

   5. Sale Free and Clear of Unexpired Leases: The Debtors do not
seek to sell the Acquired Assets free and clear of a possessory
leasehold interest, license, or other right.

   6. Provisions Providing Bid Protections to Stalking Horse or
Initial Bidder: The Stalking Horse Bidder will be entitled to
payment of (i) a break-up fee in an amount equal to 3% of the Base
Purchase Price; and (ii) reimbursement of up to $500,000 for
reasonable and documented costs and expenses incurred by the
Stalking Horse Bidder in connection with the Stalking Horse
Agreement and participation in the Auction and sale process.

The Stalking Horse Bidder also agreed to interview and extend
offers of employment to substantially all of the Covered Employees
employed at the Strack Stores in the Stalking Horse Package.  The
Stalking Horse Bidder also agreed to negotiate in good faith with
the Affected Unions representing Covered Employees to achieve
collective bargaining agreements and other labor contracts that are
acceptable to the Stalking Horse Bidder and consistent with the
terms of its current agreements with the Affected Unions.

The Debtors also asked for authority to enter into Additional
Stalking Horse Agreement with Additional Stalking Horse Bidders,
pursuant to which the Debtors would provide Additional Stalking
Horse Bidders with Additional Stalking Horse Bid Protections.

Specifically, the Debtors propose to offer each Additional Stalking
Horse Bidder a break-up fee in an amount that will not exceed 3% of
the cash portion of the purchase price in the applicable Additional
Stalking Horse Bid ("Additional Termination Payment").  Parties in
interest who wish to object to the provision of an Additional
Termination Payment must file within five calendar days after
service of the Sale Notice or relevant Supplemental Sale Notice, as
applicable.

Given the urgency of the Debtors' need to maximize value for
creditors through timely and efficient Sale Transactions, the
ability to designate Additional Stalking Horse Bidders and offer
such bidders Additional Stalking Horse Bid Protections is justified
and appropriate.

The Bidding Procedures are designed to promote a competitive and
expedient sale process.  If approved, the Bidding Procedures will
allow the Debtors to solicit and identify bids from potential
buyers that constitute the highest or best offer for the Assets on
a schedule consistent with the Milestones, the deadlines under the
Stalking Horse Agreement, and the Debtors' chapter 11 strategy.
Accordingly, the Debtors ask the Court to approve the Bidding
Procedures.

The salient terms of the Bidding Procedures are:

   a. Bid Deadline: June 26, 2017 at 4:00 p.m. (PET)

   b. Credit Bid: Persons or entities holding a perfected security
interest in Assets may seek to Credit Bid their claims for their
collateral.

   c. Landlord Bid: Any bid submitted by a landlord for the
purchase of one of more of such landlord's own Leases may include a
purchase price comprised of a (i) cash component, and (ii) a
non-cash component that represents a "credit" for rental arrears
under such Lease to reduce the cash consideration for the
applicable Lease, but not the Good Faith Deposit required.

   d. Stalking Horse Package: Each bid submitted in connection with
the Stalking Horse Package must (i) be a bid for the entire
Stalking Horse Package; and (ii) exceed the cash purchase price in
the Stalking Horse Bid, plus any applicable Termination Payment; or
(iii) propose an alternative transaction that provides better terms
than the Stalking Horse Bid, taking into account any applicable
Termination Payment.

   e. Bids for Individual Assets or Combinations of Assets: Bidders
may also submit bids for any individual Asset, whether or not such
asset is included in the Stalking Horse Package or any Additional
Stalking Horse Package.  Generally, the Debtors must conclude that
a Partial Bid, when taken together with other Partial Bids,
satisfies the criteria for being a Qualified Bid.

   f. Additional Stalking Horse Packages: Each bid submitted in
connection with an Additional Stalking Horse Package must exceed
the cash purchase price in the applicable Additional Stalking Horse
Bid, plus any applicable Additional Termination Payment, or propose
an alternative transaction that provides better terms than the
Additional Stalking Horse Bid, taking into account any applicable
Additional Termination Payment.

   g. Good Faith Deposit: An amount equal to 10% of the proposed
purchase price

   h. Stalking Horse Credit for Termination Payment: The cash and
other considerations proposed by such Qualified Bidder must exceed
the Stalking Horse Bid by the purchase price contained in the
Stalking Horse Bid, plus the applicable Termination Payment, by at
least the amount of the Minimum Overbid to advance to the next
round of bidding.

   i. Additional Stalking Horse Credit for Additional Termination
Payment: The cash and other considerations proposed by such
Qualified Bidder must exceed the applicable Additional Stalking
Horse Bid by the purchase price contained in the Additional
Stalking Horse Bid, plus the Additional Termination Payment, by at
least the amount of the Minimum Overbid to advance to the next
round of bidding.  The Additional Stalking Horse Bidder will be
entitled to a "credit" in the amount of the applicable Additional
Termination Payment to be counted toward its bid and the
computation of the Minimum Overbid for bidders to advance to the
next round of bidding with respect to the Additional Stalking Horse
Package.

   j. Baseline Bids: Bidding for each Auction Package will commence
at Baseline Bid.

   h. Minimum Overbid: The Debtors will announce at the outset of
the Auction the minimum required increments for successive
Qualified Bids.

   i. Highest or Best Offer: After the first round of bidding and
between each subsequent round of bidding, the Debtors will announce
the bid that they believe to be the highest or best offer for an
Auction Package.

Consistent with the Milestones and their need to consummate a sales
of their Assets as quickly and efficiently as possible, the Debtors
propose these key dates and deadlines for the sale process:

   a. June 2, 2017, at 10:00 a.m. (PET) - Hearing to consider
approval of Bidding Procedures and entry of Bidding Procedures
Order

   b. June 7, 2017 - Target date for Debtors to provide applicable
Counterparties Adequate Assurance Information with respect to the
Stalking Horse Bidder (and its proposed assignee, if applicable)

   c. June 14, 2017 - Deadline for Debtors to designate Additional
Stalking Horse Bidders

   d. June 16, 2017, at 4:00 p.m. (PET) - Deadline to object to (i)
proposed Sale Transaction involving Assets included in Stalking
Horse Package, (ii) Debtors' proposed Cure Costs, and (iii) the
assumption of and assignment to the Stalking Horse Bidder any (a)
Proposed Assumed Contracts included in the original Stalking Horse
Bid, and (b) any known Designation Rights Contracts identified and
noticed pursuant to the Assumption and Assignment Notice

   e. June 26, 2017, at 4:00 p.m. (PET) - Bid Deadline

   f. June 28, 2017 - Proposed date of Sale Hearing if no other
Qualified Bids received for Stalking Horse Package

   g. June 23, 2017 - Deadline for Debtors to notify Prospective
Bidders of their status as Qualified Bidders

   h. June 29, 2017 at 10:00 a.m. (PET) - Auction to be held at
offices of Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP (if necessary)

   i. June 28, 2017 - Target date for Debtors to file with the
Court the Notice of Auction Results and to provide applicable
Counterparties with Adequate Assurance Information for the
Successful Bidders and each of their proposed assignees, if
applicable

   j. July 7, 2017, at 4:00 p.m. (PET) - Deadline to object to (i)
proposed Sale Transactions involving Other Assets, and (ii) the
assumption of and assignment to (a) a Successful Bidder any
Proposed Assumed Contracts or any Contracts or Leases that may
later be designated by a Successful Bidder for assumption and
assignment, and (b) the Stalking Horse Bidder any additional
Proposed Assumed Contracts added to the Stalking Horse Bid
ultimately deemed a Successful Bid at the Auction and any
applicable known Designation Rights Contracts

   k. July 10, 2017 at 11:00 a.m. (PET) - Proposed date of Sale
Hearing to consider approval of Sale Transactions and entry of Sale
Orders

According to TCR, in connection with a Sale Transaction, the
Debtors may ask to assume and assign to the Successful Bidders
certain Contracts and Leases.  Any Counterparty who wishes to
object to the assumption, assignment, or potential designation of
their Contract or Lease, must file on June 16, 2017, at 4:00 p.m.
(PET).  Any assumption of Proposed Assumed Contracts is an exercise
of the Debtors' sound business judgment because the transfer of
such Contracts and Leases is necessary to their ability to obtain
the best value for their Assets, should be approved.

The Debtors expected that the Prepetition Secured Lenders that have
liens on substantially all of the Assets will consent to such sale.
Further, those parties with junior or prior liens can be compelled
to accept a money satisfaction of their interests, and such liens
will attach to the proceeds of the sale in their order of
priority.

The Debtors said that a strong business justification exists for
the sale of the Debtors' Assets.  An orderly but expeditious sale
of the Assets is critical to both preserving and realizing the
Company's going concern value and maximizing recoveries for their
economic stakeholders.  Moreover, the timely consummation of the
proposed Sale Transactions is required under the express terms of
the DIP Credit Agreement and the Stalking Horse Agreement.
Accordingly, the Debtors asked the Court to approve the relief
sought.

found no liens filed by Tennessee Department of Revenue or the
Internal Revenue Service on these properties.

Simultaneous with the publication of the Notice, the Trustee has
made application to the Court for the appointment of Bill Colson
Auction & Realty Co. as auctioneer for the sale.  The auctioneer
will be paid in accordance with Local Rule 6005-1 which provides as

including cars, trucks, trailers, all-terrain vehicles, boats,
aircraft, farm machinery and implements, and earth moving
equipment; or (ii) 25% of the first $40,000 of gross proceeds for

CHARTER COMMUNICATIONS: Moody's Rates New $1.5BB Unsec. Notes B1
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a B1 rating to the proposed $1.5
billion senior unsecured notes of CCO Holdings, LLC (CCOH), a
wholly-owned subsidiary of Charter Communications Inc. (Charter).
The new notes will mature in 2028, with proceeds from the issuance
being used for general corporate purposes, including repurchasing
shares. Charter's Ba2 corporate family rating (CFR) and stable
outlook remain unchanged.

Assignments:

Issuer: CCO Holdings, LLC

-- Senior Unsecured Regular Bond/Debenture, Assigned B1 (LGD5)

LGD Adjustments:

Issuer: CCO Holdings, LLC

-- Senior Unsecured Regular Bond/Debenture, B1 (LGD6 to LGD5)

-- BACKED Senior Unsecured Regular Bond/Debenture, B1 (LGD6 to
    LGD5)

Issuer: CCOH Safari, LLC

-- Senior Unsecured Regular Bond/Debenture, B1 (LGD6 to LGD5)

RATINGS RATIONALE

Charter's Ba2 corporate family rating (CFR) is supported the
company's large scale and moderate leverage. Following the
acquisitions of Time Warner Cable (TWC) and BrightHouse Networks
(BHN) in May 2016, Charter became the second largest cable operator
in the US with after Comcast (A3, Stable) and third largest pay-TV
provider after DIRECTV (unrated) and Comcast. Pro forma for this
new debt issuance, leverage for the last twelve months ended
3/31/2017 was 4.3x (including Moody's adjustments), which in
addition to its solid free cash flow supports the company's Ba2
CFR. Charter has leading broadband infrastructure and a growing
commercial segment. Moody's anticipates Charter will grow EBITDA in
the mid-single digit range over the next 12 months and continue to
grow free cash flow. Charter's financial policy remains a key
driver of the rating as management has stated that it would like to
keep net debt-to-EBITDA in the 4.0-4.5x range (before Moody's
adjustments).

The stable outlook reflects Moody's expectations that Charter's
debt-to-EBITDA (incorporating Moody's standard adjustments) will be
sustained below 4.5x over the rating horizon and the company will
continue to generate positive free cash flow and maintain good
liquidity.

Moody's would consider an upgrade of the ratings with continued
improvements in both financial and operating metrics and a
commitment to a better credit profile. Specifically, Moody's could
upgrade the CFR based on expectations for sustained leverage below
4.0x debt-to-EBITDA and free cash flow-to-debt in excess of 5%,
along with maintenance of good liquidity. A higher rating would
require commitment to the stronger credit metrics, as well as
product penetration levels more in line with industry peers, and
growth in revenue and EBITDA per homes passed. Moody's would likely
downgrade ratings if another sizeable debt funded acquisition,
ongoing basic subscriber losses, declining penetration rates,
and/or a reversion to more aggressive financial policies
contributed to expectations for sustained leverage above 4.5x
debt-to-EBITDA (including Moody's standard adjustments) or
sustained low single digit or worse free cash flow-to-debt.

One of the largest US domestic cable multiple system operators
serving over 25 million customers, 23 million broadband
subscribers, 17 million video subscribers and 11 million voice
subscribers, Charter Communications, Inc. maintains its
headquarters in Stamford, Connecticut. Pro forma revenue for the
last twelve months ended 03/31/2017 was approximately $40 billion.

The principal methodology used in this rating was Global Pay
Television - Cable and Direct-to-Home Satellite Operators published
in January 2017.


CHARTER COMMUNICATIONS: S&P Rates New $1.5BB Unsec. Notes 'BB+'
---------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings assigned its 'BB+' issue-level rating and '4'
recovery rating to CCO Holdings LLC's and CCO Holdings Capital
Corp.'s proposed $1.5 billion senior unsecured notes due 2028.  The
'4' recovery rating indicates S&P's expectation for average
recovery (30%-50%; rounded estimate: 35%) of principal for
noteholders in the event of a payment default.  The issuers are
subsidiaries of Charter Communications Inc.

Charter intends to use the proceeds from the sale of the notes to
pay related fees and expenses and for general corporate purposes
including share repurchases.  The 'BB+' corporate credit is
unchanged as S&P continues to expect leverage to remain between
4.0-4.5x for the foreseeable future.

                        RECOVERY ANALYSIS

Key Analytical Factors

   -- S&P's simulated default scenario contemplates lower revenue
      due to an acceleration of video subscriber declines and an
      inability to offset video declines with broadband growth due

      to heightened competition.

   -- Other default assumptions include: the revolver is 85%
      drawn, LIBOR rises to 2.5%, the spread on the credit
      facilities rises to 5% as covenant amendments are obtained
      as credit deteriorates, and all debt includes six months of
      prepetition interest.

   -- S&P values Charter at a 7x multiple of emergence EBITDA,
      which is at the high end of the 5x-7x range S&P uses for
      pay- TV providers given its incumbent market positions,
      programming synergies enabled by its scale, and its
      geographic diversification.

Simulated Default Assumptions
   -- Simulated year of default: 2022
   -- EBITDA at emergence: $8.3 billion
   -- EBITDA multiple: 7x

Simplified Waterfall
   -- Net enterprise value (after 5% admin costs): $55.3 billion
   -- Value available to secured claims: $55.3 billion
   -- Secured debt claims: $48.3 billion
      -- Recovery expectations: 90%-100% (rounded estimate: 95%)
   -- Total value available to unsecured claims: 7.0 billion
   -- Senior unsecured debt: $17.9 billion
      -- Recovery expectations: 30%-50% (rounded estimate: 35%)

As of Dec. 31, 2016, it owned interests in approximately 22,700 oil
and natural gas wells.  It has positions in resource plays of the
Eagle Ford Shale in South Texas, the Utica Shale in Ohio, the
Anadarko Basin in northwestern Oklahoma and the stacked pay in the

stockholders of $4.92 billion on $7.87 billion of total revenues
for the year ended Dec. 31, 2016, compared to a net loss available
to common stockholders of $14.85 billion on $12.76 billion of total

In January 2017, S&P Global Ratings raised its corporate credit
rating on Chesapeake Energy to 'B-' from 'CCC+, and removed the
ratings from CreditWatch with positive implications where S&P
placed them on Dec. 6, 2016.  The rating outlook is positive.

Chesapeake Energy carries a 'Caa1' corporate family rating from
Moody's Investors Service.


CLOUD CRANE: Moody's Rates $75MM 2nd Lien Senior Secured Notes B3
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a B3 (LGD 5) rating to Cloud
Crane Escrow, LLC's $75 million Second Lien Senior Secured Notes.
The rating outlook is Stable. Escrow is a wholly owned subsidiary
of Cloud Crane, LLC. Proceeds from the transaction will be used to
fund Cloud Crane's acquisition of Coast Crane Company. Cloud
Crane's ratings are unaffected by this rating action.

Moody's has assigned the following ratings:

Issuer: Cloud Crane Escrow, LLC

-- Gtd. Senior Secured Second Lien Global Notes, Assigned B3
    (LGD 5)

Outlook Actions:

Issuer: Cloud Crane Escrow, LLC

-- Outlook, Assigned Stable

RATINGS RATIONALE

The B3 rating on Escrow's Second Lien Senior Secured Notes reflects
that upon consummation of the Coast Crane acquisition, the Escrow
notes will be automatically exchanged for an identical principal
amount of 10.125% Second-Priority Senior Secured Notes due 2024
issued at Cloud Crane. These notes will be pari passu and have the
same credit characteristics as Cloud Crane's existing debt
instruments.

Cloud Crane's B2 CFR rating reflects the company's good market
position, strong geographic diversity, and low required capital
expenditures as well as anticipated debt-to-EBITDA leverage of
under 5 times in the next 12 to 18 months (on a Moody's adjusted
basis). The ratings are constrained by highly cyclical end markets
including significant exposure to energy and construction.

The B2 CFR, B2-PD PDR, and B3 rating on the second lien notes as
well as the stable rating outlook for Cloud Crane, LLC are not
affected by the company's announcement that it increased its 2nd
lien senior secured notes to $545 million from $470 million on a
consolidated basis. Proceeds from the $75 million add-on will be
used to purchase Coast Crane Company, one of the largest providers
of bare crane rental servicing the West Coast of the United States.
The ratings also benefit from the increased scale and diversity
resulting from the late 2016 purchase of Essex Crane Rental
Corporation's crane assets and the 2016 merger with AmQuip.

Cloud Crane's liquidity profile is anticipated to be adequate as a
result of expected free cash flow ($50 million - $70 million), good
revolver availability on its $725 million ABL that expires in 2021
($540 million outstanding as of March 2017), but few non-pledged
assets available for sale, and minimal cash balances. The revolver
was upsized from $650 million in September 2016 to finance Essex
asset acquisition. The revolver has a springing financial covenant
based on minimum levels of excess availability (10% of the
borrowing base) to be tested against a fixed charge coverage ratio
of 1.0 times. Moody's expects the company to be in compliance as it
has sufficient covenant room before the triggering event. Further,
while not anticipated given Moody's modest growth assumptions,
Moody's expects that the company would be able to cover any
unanticipated cash flow deficits through minor asset dispositions
and further borrowings on the ABL facility.

The stable rating outlook at Cloud Crane reflects its good
positioning in the rating category, Moody's expectations that
economic growth will modestly increase the demand for cranes over
the next 12-18 months, and Moody's views that Cloud Crane should be
very competitive even in the event of a downturn.

The stable rating outlook at Escrow reflects that the entity is a
non-operating subsidiary of Cloud Crane and is dependent on the
financial performance of its parent company.

The ratings could be downgraded if leverage increased to and
sustained at over 5 times, if revenues declined by 15% in any year,
or EBITDA / interest fell below 2.5 times, all numbers on a Moody's
adjusted basis.

The ratings could be upgraded if leverage falls below 4 times and
was anticipated to improve further. However, because of the highly
cyclical nature of the industry, strong liquidity would be
necessary in order for an upgrade to occur.

Cloud Crane, LLC was created in 2016 by Apollo Global Management,
LLC to purchase Maxim Crane Works, L.P. ("Maxim") and AmQuip
Holdings Corp. Headquartered in Pennsylvania, the company rents
cranes and other heavy equipment primarily to energy related and
non-residential building construction end markets.

The company is acquiring Coast Crane, one of the largest providers
of bare crane rental and related lift solutions servicing the West
Coast of the United States. The combined revenues are anticipated
to approximate over $700 million annually.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Equipment and
Transportation Rental Industry published in April 2017.


CNG HOLDINGS: S&P Raises ICR to CCC+ on Better Financial Position
-----------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said it raised its long-term issuer credit
rating on CNG Holdings Inc. to 'CCC+' from 'CCC'.  The outlook is
stable.

At the same time, S&P raised its issue-level rating on the
company's senior secured notes to 'CCC' from 'D'.  The recovery
rating of '5' remains unchanged.  The '5' recovery rating indicates
S&P's expectation for a modest recovery (10% -30%) of principal in
the event of a payment default.

"The upgrade reflects CNG's improved financial position as they
have recently grown earnings and refinanced multiple debt
facilities, leaving the company with improved leverage and no
substantial near-term maturities", S&P Global Ratings credit
analyst Adam Grossbard.  The company has stated its intentions to
continue transitioning the payday loan segment to installment
loans, which carry relatively less regulatory risk, regardless of
some of the recent news surrounding the potential restructurings of
the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau.  However, the company's
main business of small-dollar lending remains in steady decline,
and the potential for adverse regulatory developments remains a
large risk to the company.

CNG has refinanced multiple credit facilities in 2017, leaving the
company with increased liquidity and no substantial near-term debt
maturities.  CNG has a $100 million senior secured term loan
maturing in July 2019 and $331 million of senior secured notes
maturing in May 2020.  S&P views CNG's funding profile favorably,
especially compared with peers that have relatively more debt
maturing over the next two years.

The growth in EBITDA in 2016 in S&P's view is unsustainable given
that it was primarily the result of an increase in revenue per
dollar lent (specifically in the instalment loan segment), as
opposed to an increase in the volume of loans made.  The company
has purposefully originated fewer loans in the first half of 2017
as it focuses on higher-yielding loans and continues to transfer
payday customers to the installment product.  The 11.4% decline in
gross revenue derived from installment loans in first-quarter 2017,
compared with first-quarter 2016, and a 22% decline in installment
loan originations over the same time period further demonstrate
this.

CNG experienced a significant increase in provision rates in
first-quarter 2017 as the company changed their loan loss reserve
methodology to more accurately project future loan losses.  S&P
expects provision rates to remain elevated as the increased
provision rates also followed the increased yield on installment
loans, and S&P expects more loans to be executed on the online
segment, which typically carries significantly higher provision
rates, partially because of an increased risk of fraud.  S&P's
base-case scenario projects adjusted EBITDA to decline 19% to
$147.9 million in 2017, followed by another 6% to $138.1 million in
2018.

The company also still has some revenue concentration with Sears.
In 2017, approximately 18% of gross revenue came from stores owned
by Sears.  However, CNG has made some progress diversifying its
leasing business with the rollout of SmartPay products in 2,500
Walmart stores in the second half of 2016.

CNG's debt, along with debt for the greater payday industry, has
traded at prices closer to par since the U.S. Presidential
election.  In 2016, S&P lowered the rating on the company's senior
secured notes to 'D' (default) after CNG repurchased $68.9 million
of principal at prices S&P deemed as distressed and tantamount to a
default.  Based on current market conditions, S&P do not expect the
company to repurchase its debt in the secondary market at prices
substantially below par.

The stable outlook on CNG reflects S&P's belief that the company
will continue to transition from payday loans to installment loans
while continuing to grow its online segment.  The outlook
incorporates the company's revenue concentration at Sears, S&P's
expectations for declining average earning assets and elevated
provision rates, as well as the potential for adverse regulatory
developments.  Despite the strong performance in 2016, S&P' expects
earnings to decline over the next 12 months and push debt to EBITDA
back over 5.0x.  S&P expects EBITDA interest coverage to remain
between 1.5x and 2.0x.

S&P could revise the outlook to negative or lower the rating if it
expects EBITDA interest coverage to fall below 1.5x on a sustained
basis or if the company makes a debt repurchase at a price
substantially below par.  S&P could downgrade CNG if the
operational performance and creditworthiness of Sears worsens and
begins to jeopardize CNG's financial performance.

Over time, S&P could raise the rating if the company is able to
transition to online installment loans faster than S&P expects, is
able to sustain debt to EBITDA below 5.0x, or is able to
significantly diversify its leasing business to lessen the
company's reliance on Sears.

   -- S&P's simulated scenario contemplates a default occurring in

      2018 as a result of weak financial performance, which
      impedes the company's ability to generate cash flows and
      EBITDA to service the debt.  S&P assumes a reorganization
      following the default, using an emergence EBITDA multiple of

      4.0x to value the company.
   -- Simulated year of default: 2018
   -- EBITDA at emergence: $90.9 million
   -- EBITDA multiple: 4.0x

Net enterprise value for creditors (after 5% administrative costs):

COBALT INTERNATIONAL: Amends Form 10-K Report to Correct Typo
-------------------------------------------------------------
Cobalt International Energy, Inc., filed an amendment to its
current report on Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission on June 16, 2017.  As a result of a typographical error,
the provision of the Agreement pursuant to which TOTAL terminated
was incorrectly referenced.

On June 12, 2017, Total E&P USA, Inc. exercised its option to
terminate the Gulf of Mexico Program Management and AMI Agreement,
dated April 6, 2009, between Cobalt International Energy, L.P., a
wholly-owned subsidiary of Cobalt International Energy, Inc., and
TOTAL.  TOTAL terminated the Agreement in accordance with its
rights pursuant to Sections 7.1 and 7.2(d) of the Agreement, not
Sections 7.1 and 7.2(b) as originally reported.  The Agreement was
terminated effective June 12, 2017.

On April 6, 2009, Cobalt LP and TOTAL entered into a long-term
alliance through a series of transactions in which Cobalt LP and
TOTAL combined certain of their respective U.S. Gulf of Mexico
exploratory lease inventory through the exchange of a 40% interest
in Cobalt LP's leases for a 60% interest in TOTAL's leases.
Pursuant to the Agreement, Cobalt LP formed a reciprocal area of
mutual interest with TOTAL that covered substantially all of the
deepwater U.S. Gulf of Mexico, subject to certain exclusions.
TOTAL's obligations under the Agreement consisted principally of
paying its share of certain general and administrative costs
relating to the Company's operations in the deepwater U.S. Gulf of
Mexico.

qualification on the consolidated financial statements for the year
ended Dec. 31, 2016, stating that the Company has near-term

CombiMatrix reported a net loss attributable to common stockholders
of $5.78 million on $12.86 million of total revenues for the year
ended Dec. 31, 2016, compared to a net loss attributable to common

for the year ended Dec. 31, 2015.

As of March 31, 2017, Combimatrix had $8.06 million in total

total stockholders' equity.

"We have a history of incurring net losses and net operating cash
flow deficits.  We are also deploying new technologies and continue
to develop new and improve existing commercial diagnostic testing
services and related technologies.  As a result, these conditions
raise substantial doubt regarding our ability to continue as a
going concern beyond twelve months from the date of this filing.
However, as of March 31, 2017, we had cash, cash equivalents and
short-term investments of $3.2 million.  Also, the combination of
continued revenue and cash reimbursement growth as we have seen
over the past several quarters, coupled with improved gross margins
and cost containment of expenses leads management to believe that
it is probable that our cash resources will be sufficient to meet
our cash requirements for current operations through and beyond the
fourth quarter of 2017, when we anticipate achieving cash flow
break-even status.  If necessary, management also believes that it
is probable that external sources of debt and/or equity financing
could be obtained based on management's history of being able to
raise capital coupled with current favorable market conditions.  As
a result of both management's plans and current favorable trends in
improving cash flow, we believe the initial conditions which raised
substantial doubt regarding our ability to continue as a going
concern have been alleviated.  Therefore, the accompanying
consolidated financial statements have been prepared assuming that
we will continue as a going concern.  However, there can be no
assurance that our operations will become profitable or that
external sources of financing, including the issuance of debt
and/or equity securities, will be available at times and on terms
acceptable to us, or at all," the Company stated in its quarterly
report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2017.


CORPORATE RISK: Tender Offer No Impact on Moody's Caa1 CFR
----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service said that Corporate Risk Holdings, LLC's
announced tender offer for a significant portion of its second lien
notes does not impact its Caa1 Corporate Family Rating ("CFR") or
stable rating outlook. If the notes are successfully tendered, the
company's instrument ratings, including the B1 rating on its
revolving credit facility, the Caa1 rating on its first lien
secured notes, and the Caa3 rating on its second lien secured notes
will remain unchanged. The announced cash tender offer is in line
with Moody's expectations that the company will continue to reduce
debt from the $410 million proceeds of its December 2016
divestiture of Kroll Ontrack.

Corporate Risk Holdings, LLC provides pre-employment background
screening for commercial customers under its HireRight Segment. The
company's Kroll segment provides a broad range of risk mitigation

CSVC ACQUISITION: Moody's Assigns B3 Corporate Family Rating
------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned new ratings for CSVC Acquisition
Corp., including a B3 Corporate Family Rating (CFR) and a B3-PD
Probability of Default Rating (PDR). Concurrently, Moody's assigned
a B3 rating to the company's proposed $515 million issuance of
senior secured notes. The ratings outlook is stable.

In February 2017, Veritas Capital entered into an agreement to
acquire Capital Services (a maintenance, environmental, and
engineering, procurement & construction (EPC) program management
firm being carved out of Chicago Bridge & Iron Company). In
addition to the aforementioned notes offering, Capital Services
will put in place a new $175 million ABL revolving credit facility.
Proceeds from the notes issuance will augment equity from financial
sponsor Veritas and be used to fund the acquisition and one-time
standalone costs, with some excess cash remaining on the balance
sheet at closing. The new unrated $175 million ABL revolver is
expected to remain undrawn at closing.

"While risks exist related to financial sponsor ownership, muted
near-term revenue and earnings growth, and execution of the
carve-out transition and project management, Capital Services'
leverage profile and anticipated free cash flow generating ability
position the company well within the B3 rating category," according
to Prateek Reddy, Moody's lead analyst for the company.

Rating actions taken by Moody's for CSVC Acquisition Corp. are:

-- Corporate Family Rating, Assigned B3

-- Probability of Default Rating, Assigned B3-PD

-- $515 Million Senior Secured Notes due 2025, Assigned B3 (LGD4)

-- Outlook, Assigned Stable

RATINGS RATIONALE

Capital Services' B3 CFR broadly reflects execution risks
associated with the carve-out transition, the company's thin
operating margins, and Moody's expectations for minimal revenue and
earnings growth at least through 2018. Other constraining factors
include the lack of pre-payable debt, the potential for a large
debt-funded acquisition, event risks associated with financial
sponsor ownership, high customer concentration, and the competitive
intensity of the industry. Uncertainties inherent to estimating
contract costs, surety bonding and letters of credit requirements
for new projects, meeting requisite performance standards, and the
involvement of subcontractors impose additional risks to
profitability and liquidity of the company. However, the company's
comparatively healthy financial profile (leverage and interest
coverage of about 4.7 times and 2.4 times, respectively, on a pro
forma Moody's-adjusted basis) and free cash flow generating ability
(at least 6% of Moody's-adjusted debt) serve to position Capital
Services well within the B3 rating category. The rating is also
supported by reasonably good revenue and earnings visibility, as
evidenced by the company's sizable contract backlog and the
relative stability of its service offerings which have more
predictable demand characteristics. A good liquidity profile also
underpins Moody's assessment of credit risk and the assigned
ratings.

The stable ratings outlook reflects Moody's expectation that
Capital Services will maintain stable revenues and EBITDA margins
during the carve-out transition phase. The outlook incorporates
small tuck-in acquisitions funded largely with internally generated
cash flow, but does not incorporate sizable, leveraging,
debt-funded acquisitions.

The B3 rating for the $515 million of senior secured notes is in
line with the B3 CFR, incorporating the effective subordination of
this debt to the unrated ABL revolver but also the loss-absorption
cushion provided by a meaningful amount of general unsecured claims
(including trade payables, operating lease rejection claims, and
estimated multiemployer pension plan related liabilities) in an
event of default scenario. Moody's noted that the withdrawal
liabilities associated with almost all of the company's
multiemployer pension plans (MEPP) are subject to the construction
industry exemption.

Before consideration of a prospective ratings upgrade, Capital
Services would need to successfully execute on the carve-out
transition with minimal unanticipated one-time expenses.
Additionally, revenue and earnings growth that contributed to
Moody's-adjusted Debt-to-EBITDA sustaining below 4.5 times while
good liquidity is maintained (including at least $100 million of
availability under the revolver) would be needed for ratings to be
upgraded.

Ratings could be downgraded if revenue or EBITDA decline, such that
Debt-to-EBITDA is expected to be sustained above 6 times.
Unexpected surety bond or letter of credit requirements that
constrain liquidity, or leveraging debt-funded acquisitions or
dividends, could also result in a ratings downgrade.

Headquartered in The Woodlands, TX and Baton Rouge, LA, Capital
Services provides operations and maintenance, EPC, environmental
services, and program management services to clients in the
commercial (power, industrial, and retail), government and
infrastructure sectors. The company's revenue was $2.2 billion for
the twelve month period ended March 31, 2017. Following the
proposed acquisition, Capital Services will be owned by private
equity firm Veritas Capital.

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


CSVC ACQUISITION: S&P Assigns 'B' CCR; Outlook Stable
-----------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings assigned its 'B' corporate credit rating to CSVC
Acquisition Corp.  The outlook is stable.

At the same time, S&P assigned its 'B' issue-level rating and '4'
recovery rating to the company's proposed $515 million senior
secured notes due 2025.  The '4' recovery rating indicates S&P's
expectation for average recovery (30%-50%; rounded estimate: 45%)
in the event of a payment default.

"Our ratings on CSVC Acquisition reflect the company's position as
a niche provider of maintenance, environmental services, EPC,
program management, and emergency response services to customers in
the commercial, government, and infrastructure sectors
predominantly in the U.S.  Despite the company's profitability,
which we view as below average for companies in the broader
engineering and construction sector, we expect CSVC Acquisition to
continue to generate good FOCF due to its low capital expenditure
needs," said S&P Global Ratings credit analyst Robyn Shapiro.
S&P's assessment of the company's financial risk profile reflects
its controlling ownership by a private-equity sponsor pro forma for
the proposed transaction.

The stable outlook on CSVC reflects S&P's belief that the company
will increase its EBITDA in line with our expectations while
maintaining debt leverage of around 5x over the next 12 months.
S&P also expects the company's FOCF-to-debt ratio to be in the
high-single digit percent area due in part to its low capital
expenditure needs.

While unexpected, S&P could lower its ratings on CSVC Acquisition
during the next 12 months if its debt leverage increases above 6x
or its FOCF approaches zero.  This could occur because of an
unexpected decline in the company's operating performance due to a
number of projects turning meaningfully less profitable than S&P
expects, for example, or the adoption of a more aggressive growth
plan.

S&P considers an upgrade unlikely over the next 12 months because
it believes that CSVC's credit measures will remain highly
leveraged under its private-equity owners.  However, S&P could
raise its rating if it believes that the company is committed to
maintaining a FOCF-to-debt ratio of greater than 5%, it
demonstrates sustained debt reduction below 5x, and S&P come to
believe that the risk of it increasing its adjusted debt-to-EBITDA
above 5x is low.


DOTS LLC: Motion to Amend Clawback Suit vs. Pandora Partly Granted
------------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Michael B. Kaplan of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of New Jersey granted and denied in part Dots, LLC's
Motion to Amend, seeking leave to amend its Complaint in an
adversary proceeding filed against Pandora Media, Inc., also known
as Pandora Radio.

Dots seeks permission to amend its Complaint to recover certain
pre- and postpetition payments made to Pandora which Dots
identified in the course of discovery. Pandora opposes the Motion
and asserts that it should be denied as futile.

On or about August 16, 2013, Dots entered into a media buying
agency agreement or the Master Services Agreement with Media
Planning and Buying Services, Inc., d/b/a Capstone Media. Pursuant
to the MSA, funds passed from Dots through Capstone for the
purchase of media services. Pandora was the ultimate recipient of
such funds.

On or about Jan. 20, 2014, Dots filed a voluntary petition for
relief under chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code. Upon review of the
Dots' books and records, it was determined by Dots' accounting
professionals that approximately $872,425 was forwarded to Capstone
during the 90 day period preceding the Petition Date. Additionally,
it was determined that Pandora had received a portion of those
funds. Accordingly, on or about Jan. 19, 2016, Dots filed its
Complaint against Pandora, seeking to recover a total of
$325,084.02 which Dots asserted was made in five separate
preferential transfer payments. Pandora filed its Answer on March
4, 2016.

The parties then engaged in discovery. Dots asserts that it served
a subpoena to Capstone in Ohio on or about Oct. 7, 2015; however,
Capstone refused to comply. Dots states that it was unable to
procure local counsel in Ohio to pursue enforcement of the subpoena
due to limited resources and the cost of litigation. Nevertheless,
Dots contends that special counsel ultimately ascertained that at
least a portion of the funds held by Capstone were maintained by
U.S. Bank, N.A. On or about August 1, 2016, and again on or about
Oct. 27, 2016, Dots served U.S. Bank with subpoenas. By December
2016, U.S. Bank had substantially complied with the subpoenas and,
based on the information provided, Dots determined that $10,624.99
was transferred to Pandora pre-petition; and $240,405.46 was
transferred to Pandora postpetition.

Dots contends that it engaged in good faith efforts to clarify the
record with counsel for Pandora and--based on that clarified
information--Dots now seeks to amend its Complaint to reflect the
updated record. Specifically, Dots seeks to: "(A) note the
Pre-Petition Transfers as the transfers forming the subject of the
Debtor's cause of action under Bankruptcy Code sections 547 and
550; (B) add a claim under Bankruptcy Code section 549 in
connection with the Post-Petition Transfers; and (C) add a claim
under Bankruptcy Code section 542 in connection with the
Post-Petition Transfers."

In their Opposition, Pandora explains that Dots does not seek to
simply amend the previously asserted section 547 claims; but
instead seeks to "delete the original transfer allegations and. . .
allege new, separate and distinct transfers." Pandora contends that
the proposed additional preferential transfers are separate
transactions and do not relate back to the original Complaint.

In response, Dots explains that the transfers challenged in the
original Complaint and those added in the Proposed Amended
Complaint derive from a common set of operative facts. Thus, Dots
asserts that the proposed amended claims do, in fact, arise from
the conduct set forth in the original Complaint, and satisfy the
relation back analysis.

Judge Kaplan finds that the original Complaint afforded Pandora
sufficient notice of Dots' intent to challenge the transfers in the
Proposed Amended Complaint.  The facts of the instant case are not
complicated, the judge said.  The Complaint clearly reflected Dots'
intent to avoid impermissible transfers under the Code, and it
identified the nature of the transactions and the parties, the
judge pointed out.  Additionally, the transactions challenged in
the original Complaint and in the Proposed Amended Complaint all
occurred within substantially the same time period: the original
claims challenged transfers occurring in November and December of
2013, while the amended claims challenge transfers occurring in
November of 2013, and February of 2014.

Therefore, the claims in the Proposed Amended Complaint arise out
of the same set of core operative facts as the original Complaint.
The proposed amendments do not seek to add new, separate claims
based on different facts, but seek simply to clarify the amounts
and dates of the challenged transfers; and to alter the legal
theory upon which Dots seeks relief. Such changes are permitted
under the liberal application of Rule 15(c).

Further, the allegations of the Complaint gave reasonable notice to
Pandora that the Trustee was still investigating the case and could
potentially identify additional claims. The Trustee specifically
reserved the right to "amend the Complaint if additional transfers
are discovered." Based on the foregoing, Judge Kaplan determines
that permitting amendment is appropriate under Rule 15(c).

In the Motion, Dots seeks to amend its original Complaint to add a
claim for turnover of property pursuant to 11 U.S.C. section 542.
However, as Pandora points out, Dots does not provide any legal
discussion as to why an amendment to include a claim under section
542 is appropriate. In its Reply brief, Dots explains that it
wishes to allege, for purposes of section 542, that Pandora did not
receive a "transfer" of funds from Capstone, but instead received
funds held in trust for Debtor.

Here, Dots fails to explain how the funds it paid to Capstone
pursuant to the MSA, which were then paid to Pandora, remain
property of the estate. Dots baldly asserts that Capstone held the
funds in trust; however, the MSA between Dots and Capstone
references only invoices and payments, the Court held.  Thus, there
is nothing in Dots' Motion, in its Proposed Amended Complaint, or
elsewhere in its submissions which suggest that the funds paid to
Capstone were held in trust and constitute property of the estate.
Rather, these payments appear to be transfers which are no longer
property of the estate. Indeed, Dots seeks to avoid these very
transfers pursuant to section 547 and section 549; and Dots'
supplemental brief is devoid of any reference to section 542.
Because the payments to Capstone are not property of the estate,
Dots' proposed claims under section 542 would fail to state a claim
upon which relief could be granted, amendment would be futile.
Accordingly, Dots' Motion is denied with respect to its proposed
claims under section 542.

ECLIPSE RESOURCES: S&P Raises CCR to 'B-'; Outlook Stable
---------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings raised its corporate credit rating on State
College, Pa.-based Eclipse Resources Inc. to 'B-' from 'CCC+'.  The
rating outlook is stable.

At the same time, S&P raised its issue-level rating on the
company's senior unsecured notes to 'B-' from 'CCC+'.  S&P also
revised the recovery rating on this debt to '3' from '4',
indicating meaningful (50%-70%; rounded estimate: 60%) recovery in
the event of a payment default.

"The rating action reflects our opinion that Eclipse's leverage is
now sustainable due to our increased production and cash flow
projections," said S&P Global Ratings credit analyst Christine
Besset.

Due to the resumption of drilling operations in the second quarter
of 2016 and increases in drilling efficiencies and well
productivity, S&P has revised its production estimate for 2017 to
310 million cubic feet per day (mmcfe/d) (from 250 mmcfe/d
previously).  Based on S&P's price and cost assumptions, it now
forecasts that debt leverage will be just above 4x on average over
the next two years versus over 6x previously.  As a result, S&P has
revised its financial risk descriptor to aggressive from highly
leveraged.  S&P's financial risk assessment also incorporates the
company's ownership by a financial sponsor, and S&P's view that the
financial sponsor will maintain debt to EBITDA below 5x.

The stable outlook reflects S&P's expectation that Eclipse will
maintain FFO to debt above 12% and debt to EBITDA below 5x on a
sustained basis and adequate liquidity for the next 12 months,
despite outspending cash flows.

S&P could lower the rating if it expected liquidity to deteriorate
or S&P believed that FFO to debt would be below 12% on a sustained
basis, which would most likely result from weaker-than-forecasted
commodity prices or differentials, or higher-than-expected capital
spending without an associated increase in production.

S&P could raise the ratings if the company grows reserves and
production to a level more in line with 'B' rated peers, while
maintaining FFO to debt above 12% and adequate liquidity.


EMAS CHIYODA: Sale of Texas Property to Subsea for $16M Approved
----------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Marvin Isgur of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of Texas authorized the sale by EMAS CHIYODA Subsea Ltd.
and affiliates of real property commonly known as the Ingleside
Spoolbase, a tract or parcel of land being approximately 119 acres
in San Patricio County, State of Texas, together with all buildings
and improvements located or situated thereon, and equipment, to
Subsea 7 (US), LLC for $16,000,000.

The Sale Hearing was held on June 20, 2017.

The Court approved the Enhanced Stalking Horse Agreement which is
conditioned upon the occurrence of the Effective Date of the Plan.


A copy of the Enhanced Stalking Horse Agreement and the list of
Equipment to be sold attached the Order is available for free at:

      http://bankrupt.com/misc/EMAS_CHIYODA_522_Order.pdf

If the Plan goes effective, the Auction will be cancelled.  If the
Plan does not go effective, the Auction will resume for a time and
a date with no less than seven business days' notice to parties in
interest.

The sale is free and clear of all liens, claims, encumbrances, with
all such Liens to attach to the proceeds of sale of the Texas
Property.  Provided however, with respect to the ad valorem tax
claims connected to the Texas Property filed by San Patricio County
and Harris County, the undisputed 2016 real and personal property
ad valorem taxes will be paid at closing and the tax liens which
secure payment of the 2017 taxes to be assessed will remain
attached to the property until the 2017 taxes are paid in full by
the Purchaser.

All Sale Proceeds will be held in escrow with Porter Hedges LLP,
co-counsel for the Debtors, pending further order of the Court,
which may be the confirmation order approving the Plan, provided,
however, that within three business days after the closing of the
sale of the Texas Property, the Debtors will pay to Helix, from the
Sale Proceeds, the undisputed pre­petition amounts owed to Helix
Ingleside LLC in the amount of $10,301,551, plus all undisputed
post-petition interest accrued in the amount of $296,059, assuming
a June 23, 2017 closing of the sale of the Texas Property, and
reasonable attorneys' fees in the estimated amount of $45,000,
assuming a June 23, 2017 closing of the sale of the Texas Property,
owed to Helix.

If the closing of the sale of the Texas Property occurs after June
23, 2017, post-petition interest will accrue at a rate of $2,643
per day until the closing of the sale of the Texas Property and the
Debtors will pay Helix's reasonable attorneys' fees through the
closing of the sale of the Texas Property.  If the closing of the
sale of the Texas Property occurs before June 23, 2017, the
post-petition interest will be reduced by a rate of $2,643 per day.
In the event the parties do not agree on Helix's claim amount(s),
the parties fully reserve all of their rights, claims, and defenses
regarding the disputed amounts.

Upon the payment in full of all undisputed amounts or amounts
determined to be owed by a final order of a court of competent
jurisdiction, Helix will release all claims against the Debtors'
estates, including, but not limited to, Claim #473 filed against
EMAS CHIYODA Subsea Marine Base LLC; provided, further, however,
with respect to the ad valorem tax claims connected to the Texas
Property filed by San Patricio County and Harris County, the
undisputed 2016 real and personal property ad valorem taxes will be
paid at closing.

Other than as set forth with respect to Helix, San Patricio County,
and Harris County, the Sale Proceeds will be distributed by the
Debtors' estates as further set forth in the Plan, including
pursuant to the sharing provisions described in the Plan.

Chiyoda's obligation to pay $850,000 in GUC Cash on the effective
date of the Plan as a Stalking Horse Enhancement may not be
increased or otherwise modified in any manner without the express
written consent of Chiyoda, which Chiyoda may provide or refuse to
provide in its sole and absolute discretion.

If an auction is conducted, the rights (if any) of all
parties-in-interest and of any person who has submitted a bid are
preserved as they existed at 2:36 p.m. on June 20, 2017.

Notwithstanding anything in Bankruptcy Rule 6004(h), the Order will
be effective and enforceable immediately upon the Effective Date of
the Plan.

and outlook are also supported by Generac's good liquidity profile
and expectation for positive free cash flow generation and
conversion that will be applied towards further deleveraging,
acquisitions, and share buybacks. The rating also reflects
performance swings due to the cyclical demand nature of its
industry. Following periods of severe power outages, Generac
benefits from increased sales due to increased customers' awareness
for power generators. Conversely, during periods of limited power
outages, customer awareness drops which negatively affects demand
and financial performance. Low major storm activity in recent years
is one reason why organic sales has proven challenging due to its
impact on its residential demand which recently was just over half
of sales.

The SGL-2, indicating a good liquidity profile, recognizes the
expectation of continued healthy free cash flow generation over the
next twelve to eighteen months, availability under its undrawn
asset-backed revolving credit facility, and the absence of
meaningful near-term debt maturities. The company's $250 million
ABL revolver expiring 2020 has unused availability of $150 million
and Moody's expects outstandings will not increase significantly
over the near-term given expectations for continued strong free
cash flow generation.

Generac has publicly stated leverage goal of 2x to 3x as calculated
by the company. Moody's believes that the company will continue to
make small acquisitions to support growth and anticipate an
increase in shareholder friendly activities once it nears or meets
its growth and leverage targets. The company has good liquidity but
would need to borrow to fund meaningful acquisitions. Although the
ABL revolver has a springing covenant, Moody's does not expects it
to spring. The senior secured facilities are not subject to any
financial maintenance covenants. Moreover, the company is not
considered to have meaningful unencumbered assets that can be sold
to generate liquidity without affecting its core operations.

The stable outlook balances low leverage, good coverage and strong
cash flow to debt and cash flow generation against the weak organic
growth nature of the company's end markets and significant
competition. Moody's does not currently anticipates a large debt
financed acquisition.

In order for an upgrade to occur, Debt / EBITDA would be expected
to be sustained below 3.0 times, EBITA / Interest coverage
maintained over 6.5 times (all referenced ratios on a Moody's
adjusted basis unless otherwise noted) and organic revenue growth
would need to turn positive. Further, dividend and shareholder
policies consistent with improving credit metrics would be
necessary (all referenced ratios on a Moody's adjusted basis unless
otherwise noted).

The rating or outlook could be adversely affected if Debt / EBITDA
were to increase over 4.0 times or EBITA to interest coverage
declines below 4.0 times. Aggressive shareholder friendly actions
or weak operating cash flow combined with a debt-financed
acquisition are some of the other factors that could drive a
downgrade.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Global
Manufacturing Companies published in June 2017.

Generac Power Systems, Inc., headquartered in Wisconsin, is a
leading designer and manufacturer of a wide range of standby
electric generators and, to a lesser degree, other engine powered
products globally. The company has over 3,000 employees and is
expected by Moody's to have over $1.5 billion in revenues for 2017.

HGIM CORP: S&P Lowers CCR to 'CCC-'; Outlook Negative
-----------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings lowered its corporate credit rating on HGIM
Corp. to 'CCC-' from 'CCC+'.  The outlook is negative.

At the same time, S&P lowered its issue-level rating on the
company's senior secured debt to 'CCC-' from 'CCC+'.  The recovery
rating remains '3', indicating S&P's expectation for meaningful
(50%-70%; rounded estimate: 50%) recovery in the event of a payment
default.

The downgrade reflects the increased likelihood, in S&P's opinion,
that HGIM will enter into a capital restructuring plan or debt
exchange that S&P would view as distressed within the next six
months.

The negative outlook reflects S&P's view that HGIM could enter into
a capital restructuring or exchange that S&P would view as
distressed over the next six months.

S&P could lower the rating if HGIM announces a debt transaction
that S&P considers distressed.  This likely occurs if it is unable
to negotiate covenant relief.

S&P could raise the rating if it believes the company is no longer
considering a distressed exchange.

   -- S&P's simulated default scenario contemplates a payment
      default in 2018, following an extended period of weak
      commodity prices that leads to a major cutback in
      exploration and production spending and delays in the
      startup of offshore projects.

   -- S&P has valued the company on a discrete asset-valuation
      basis and assume that a default during an extended cyclical
      downturn will significantly lower the value of the vessels.
      S&P's valuation takes a 50% haircut to the net book value of

      the company's vessels including construction in progress.

   -- S&P assumes that HGIM's $270 million revolving credit
      facility is 85% drawn at default.

   -- S&P's analysis also incorporates the company's $137 million
      term loan A (unrated), which S&P expects the claims will be
      pari passu with the revolving credit facility, as well as
      HGIM's term loan B.

   -- Stimulated year of default: 2017

   -- Net enterprise value (after 5% administrative costs:
      $696 million

   -- Secured first-lien debt (including the revolving credit
      facility, term loan B, and term loan A): $1.29 billion

   -- Recovery expectation: 50% to 70% (rounded estimate: 50%)

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

When hhgregg filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy, it had signed a term
sheet with an anonymous party to purchase the Company assets.  The
Company said at that time it expected a quick and smooth process
through Chapter 11 with emergence in approximately 60 days.  Ten
days later, hhgregg said it has terminated the nonbinding term
sheet with the anonymous party because the Company was unable to
reach a definitive agreement on terms, and said it continues to
work with interested third parties to purchase assets of the
business.  hhgregg added it had received strong interest from third
parties interested in buying some or all of the Company's assets.

Subsequently, hhgregg executed a consulting agreement with a
contractual joint venture comprised of Tiger Capital Group, LLC and
Great American Group, LLC to conduct a sale of the merchandise and
furniture, fixtures and equipment located at the Company's retail
stores and distribution centers.  

In an April order, the Bankruptcy Court approved, at the Company's
request, a plan for the Company to close 132 retail stores and the

IMMUCOR INC: Moody's Raises Corporate Family Rating to B3
---------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service upgraded Immucor, Inc. Corporate Family
Rating (CFR) to B3 from Caa1 and Probability of Default rating to
B3-PD from Caa1-PD. Moody's also assigned a B1 rating to Immucor's
proposed $647 million senior secured term loan B and a Caa2 to its
new senior unsecured notes due 2022. Moody's also upgraded to Caa2
from Caa3 the rating on Immucor's remaining senior unsecured notes
due 2019 following the pending exchange. Moody's expects any 2019
notes not exchanged to be redeemed in August 2017, at which point
the rating agency will withdraw its rating on this instrument.
Moody's also assigned a B1 to Immucor's revolving credit facility
expiring 2020. Lastly, Moody's affirmed Immucor's Speculative Grade
Liquidity (SGL) rating of SGL-3. The outlook is stable.

The upgrade of Immucor's CFR reflects the benefits of the
refinanced capital structure, which will alleviate near-term
maturity risk. The upgrade also reflects the elimination of the
threat of the revolving credit facility's expiration springing
forward to May 2018.

Ratings upgraded:

Immucor, Inc.

Corporate Family Rating to B3 from Caa1

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

Senior unsecured notes due 2019 to Caa2 (LGD 5) from Caa3 (LGD 5)

Ratings assigned:

Immucor, Inc.

Senior secured term loan B due 2021 at B1 (LGD 3)

Senior secured revolving credit facility expiring 2020 at B1 (LGD
3)

Senior unsecured notes due 2022 at Caa2 (LGD 5)

Ratings affirmed:

Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating at SGL-3

Ratings withdrawn:

Immucor, Inc.

Senior secured revolving credit facility expiring 2017 at B2 (LGD
3)

Ratings to be withdrawn upon close:

Immucor, Inc.

Senior secured term loan due 2018 at B2 (LGD 3)

RATINGS RATIONALE

The B3 Corporate Family Rating reflects Immucor's very high
financial leverage and modest free cash flow relative to debt.
Moody's estimates the company's pro forma adjusted debt to EBITDA
of approximately 7.6 times will gradually decline toward 7.0 times
over the next 12 to 18 months. The rating is also constrained by
Immucor's moderately small size, and limited degree of business
diversity. This makes it vulnerable to industry headwinds such as
reduced demand for blood by hospitals for testing and soft patient
admission trends.

The rating is supported by the recurring nature of Immucor's
revenue stream as a result of the need for the company's reagents
for their installed closed system instruments. The ratings are also
supported by Immucor's leading position within the U.S. transfusion
diagnostics market, as well as its strong profit margins.

The stable rating reflects Moody's expectation that Immucor's
credit metrics will remain challenged in the near term by continued
declines in blood demand and competitive pressures. It also
reflects Moody's belief that expense reductions will help Immucor
grow earnings, reduce leverage, and generate modestly positive free
cash flow.

The SGL-3 Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating reflects Moody's
expectation that Immucor will maintain a modest amount of excess
cash and will need revolver borrowings to help fund interest
payments on its unsecured notes. It also reflects Moody's view that
Immucor will maintain limited cushion on its springing first lien
net leverage covenant.

The ratings could be upgraded if the company is able to expand its
revenue and earnings as a result of organic growth. The company
would also need to sustain adjusted debt to EBITDA of around 5.5
times for Moody's to consider an upgrade.

The ratings could be downgraded if the company's liquidity
deteriorates. Further, weak operating performance or an inability
to generate positive free cash flow could result in a ratings
downgrade.

Immucor, Inc., headquartered in Norcross, Georgia, is a leading
in-vitro diagnostic blood typing and screening company that
develops and manufactures reagents and automated systems used by
hospitals, donor centers and reference laboratories. The company
also operates a transplantation diagnostics business through its
LIFECODES operation. Immucor is owned by TPG Capital. For the
twelve months ended February 28, 2017, net revenues totaled $384
million.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Medical Product
and Device Industry published in June 2017.

J.G. NASCON: Keesler Buying Sakai SV70D Vibratory Roller for $7K
----------------------------------------------------------------
J.G. Nascon, Inc., asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern
District of Pennsylvania to authorize the sale of Sakai SV70D
Vibratory Roller, Serial No. 150C030493094, to Keesler Truck &
Tractor Sales, Inc. for $7,250.

In 1992, the Debtor purchased the Roller with an estimated value of
approximately $7,250.

Prior to the Filing Date, M&T Bank made various loans to the
Debtor, including to finance the purchase of the Roller.  

The Lender claims a first position, blanket lien on all of the
Debtor's assets, tangible and intangible, including the Roller,
pursuant to these loan documents:

   a. The Line of Credit: On June 26, 2013, the Fourth A&R Note was
amended and restated in its entirety by that certain Amended and
Restated Revolving Demand Note in the original principal amount of
$3,350,000 dated June 26, 2013, which was subsequently amended
through Jan. 15, 2014.

   b. The 2012 Term Loan: On July 27, 2012, the Lender made a term
loan to the Debtor in the original principal amount of $300,000
evidenced by a loan agreement and term note of the same date.

   c. The 2013 Term Loan: On Oct. 1, 2013, the Lender made a term
loan to the Debtor in the original principal amount of $750,000
evidenced by a loan agreement and term note of the same date.

In September 2014, the Lender confessed judgment against the Debtor
in the amount of $4,321,207 in the Court of Common Pleas of
Delaware County, Pennsylvania.  That judgment was subsequently
opened and subject to litigation as of the Filing Date.

As of the Filing Date, the Debtor owned, and continues to own, the
Roller.

The Debtor proposes to sell the Roller to the Buyer for a total
purchase price of $7,250, free and clear of any and all liens,
claims, and encumbrances.  The closing on the Purchase Offer and
subsequent agreement of sale will occur within five days after the
Court approves the same.  The Debtor intends to negotiate and
finalize an agreement of sale prior to the Sale Hearing requested
and submit the same for approval.

The Debtor and Lender have agreed to a distribution of the sale
proceeds.  The sale proceeds will serve as a principal curtailment
payment to reduce the principal balance due and owing to M&T Bank
in connection with the JG Nascon Loans.

The Lender has advised the Debtor that it will consent to the sale
of the Roller provided that it receives, upon the closing of the
sale, the total of $5,438 for the Roller.  Nothing in the Motion or
this Order will alter or relieve Debtor of its obligation to make
all adequate protection payments to the Lender when due in
accordance with the terms of any cash collateral order entered by
the Court.

The Debtor avers that, with the sale of the Roller, the Debtor's
estate will receive a total of $1,813 to assist in its
reorganization efforts.

The Debtor submits that the decision to sell the Roller is based
upon its sound business judgment and should be approved.  Its
operations will not be diminished by the sale of the Roller.
Moreover, the Debtor feels that the distribution to its Lender and
the monies remaining will significantly assist it in its plan for
reorganization.  The Debtor thus believes that the sale of the
Roller will provide the best result for its estate and creditors.

KENT LINDEMUTH: Court Severs 2 Counts from Indictment
-----------------------------------------------------
U.S. District Judge Daniel D. Crabtree granted Kent Lindemuth's
Motion to Sever Counts 114 and 115, which charge Mr. Lindemuth with
receiving ammunition and firearms while under indictment.  However,
the Court denied Mr. Lindemuth's Motion to Dismiss Counts 1-103,
104, and 111 and his Motion to Dismiss Counts 1-103, as well as his
Motion to Change Location of Trial.  

Mr. Lindemuth is a real estate developer in Topeka, Kansas, whose
business dealings made him a visible member of the community. But
things took a rough turn for Mr. Lindemuth.

On November 9, 2012, Mr. Lindemuth filed six petitions for Chapter
11 bankruptcy in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of
Kansas, disclosing that he had total debts of more than $3.5
million. Eventually, the Bankruptcy Court approved Mr. Lindemuth's
Chapter 11 plan and issued the required final decrees and closed
Mr. Lindemuth's bankruptcy cases on December 29, 2015.

Sometime later, federal authorities charged Mr. Lindemuth with
failing to disclose the purchase of 103 firearms during his
bankruptcy proceedings. The Indictment charges Mr. Lindemuth with
117 crimes in 115 separate counts.

The government secured an indictment against Mr. Lindemuth on June
1, 2016, charging him with 103 counts of bankruptcy fraud by
concealment and aiding and abetting bankruptcy fraud by
concealment. Subsequently, on December 14, 2016, the government
secured a Sealed First Superseding Indictment, charging Mr.
Lindemuth with 117 crimes in 115 separate counts, as follows:

     -- Counts 1 through 103, the Indictment charges Mr. Lindemuth
with 103 separate counts of bankruptcy fraud by concealment. The
Indictment bases these 103 counts on 103 alleged purchases of
firearms that Mr. Lindemuth allegedly did not disclose during his
bankruptcy proceedings -- these firearms were worth more than
$80,000.

     -- Counts 104 and 111 also charge Mr. Lindemuth with
bankruptcy fraud by concealment and aiding and abetting bankruptcy
fraud by concealment. Count 104 charges that Mr. Lindemuth failed
to disclose the existence of a bank account at Envista Credit Union
and failed to disclose that he had deposited more than $250,000
into that account during his bankruptcies. Count 111 charges that
Mr. Lindemuth failed to disclose the existence of a bank account at
US Bank and failed to disclose that he had deposited more than $1.5
million into that account during his bankruptcies.

     -- Counts 105 through 110 charged Mr. Lindemuth with five
separate counts of money laundering. These five counts charged that
Mr. Lindemuth made deposits and withdrawals to or from the
undisclosed Envista Credit Union account.

     -- Counts 112 and 113 also charged Mr. Lindemuth with
bankruptcy fraud by concealment and aiding and abetting bankruptcy
fraud by concealment. The Indictment based these two counts on Mr.
Lindemuth's alleged failure to disclose that he owned a 2009 Ford
Mustang worth $90,000 and a 2008 Ford GT 500 Mustang worth $150,000
during his bankruptcies.

     -- Counts 114 and 115 charged Mr. Lindemuth with receiving
ammunition and firearms while under indictment in this case.

Accordingly, between February 17, 2017 and February 20, 2017, Mr.
Lindemuth filed a motion to change the venue of his trial, a motion
to unseal part of the grand jury transcript, a motion to sever
counts 114 and 115 from the other 113 counts of the Indictment, and
four different motions to dismiss.

At the hearing on April 3, 2017, the Court granted Mr. Lindemuth's
motion to unseal part of the grand jury transcript and denied two
of his motions to dismiss, and took the other four motions under
advisement.

On April 5, 2017, the government secured the Second Superseding
Indictment, which modifies the dates associated with the charges in
counts 1 through 103. It also adds a charge of perjury to the 115
other counts from the Indictment. Then, on May 3, 2017, the
government secured the Third Superseding Indictment, which charges
Mr. Lindemuth with a third count of receiving firearms while under
indictment.

The Court had set Mr. Lindemuth's trial for September 12, 2017, in
the Topeka, Kansas, federal courthouse.

A. Motion to Change Location of Trial

In his first motion, Mr. Lindemuth asked the Court to move his
trial from the Topeka, Kansas, federal courthouse to the Kansas
City, Kansas, federal courthouse. Mr. Lindemuth asked for a change
of venue, arguing that the Topeka-based, pre-trial media coverage
of this case, his previous bankruptcies, and him in general likely
will prevent him from "obtain[ing] the unbiased jury that is
essential to a fair trial" in Topeka. So, Mr. Lindemuth asserted
that holding the trial in Topeka will violate his due process
rights, and thus asserts that the court must transfer the trial as
a matter of law.

To support his motion for transfer, Mr. Lindemuth submitted 46
unique articles and more than nine pages of reader comments.
However, the Court found out that most of the news coverage that he
submitted occurred one to four years before Mr. Lindemuth was
charged in this case. The Court noticed that the news coverage
concerns Mr. Lindemuth's bankruptcies, auctions related to his
bankruptcies, how his bankruptcies could affect the Topeka real
estate market, and his failure to pay property taxes on several of
his properties.

The Court held that the combined effect of the articles does not
amount to evidence that the Topeka community is convinced already
that Mr. Lindemuth is guilty. At most, the articles showed that Mr.
Lindemuth has received some undesirable press in the past and that
some Topeka residents were affected by his bankruptcies -- some
positively, some negatively.

The Court pointed out that Mr. Lindemuth is a visible figure in the
Topeka community, so it is natural that the news media would write
about his successes, and it is even more natural that they would
write about his difficulties. But general coverage about an
individual, even if unflattering, is not sufficient to warrant a
venue change, the Court said.

The Court concluded that Mr. Lindemuth has failed to show that the
articles in the record establish that an irrepressibly hostile
attitude against him pervades the Topeka community, and as such, he
has not established that he cannot receive a fair trial in Topeka
or presumptive prejudice.

B. Motion to Sever Counts 114 and 115

Mr. Lindemuth also sought for the severance of counts 114 and 115
from the rest of the charges in the Indictment.

The government contended that it properly joined counts 114 and 115
with the rest of the Indictment because "the evidence overlaps
concerning Counts 114 and 115 with the indictment, and the evidence
is inextricably intertwined."

At the April 3, 2017 hearing, the government argued that Mr.
Lindemuth's purchase of the guns and ammunition at issue in counts
114 and 115 is similar in character to the other 113 counts of the
Indictment because he allegedly attempted to conceal purchases of
the property on which counts 114 and 115 rely. The government did
not contend, however, that Mr. Lindemuth attempted to conceal the
purchases in the same manner as he allegedly concealed the property
and assets at issue in the Indictment's bankruptcy fraud and money
laundering counts.

The Court determined that nothing in counts 114 and 115 involves
Mr. Lindemuth concealing property or assets from the bankruptcy
court. Indeed, the conduct that Mr. Lindemuth was charged with
committing in counts 114 and 115 occurred almost a year after his
bankruptcy cases closed. So, the Court held that the offenses
charged in counts 114 and 115 were not based on the same act or
transaction as those in the remaining counts of the Indictment, nor
were they of the same or similar character or connected with parts
of a common scheme or plan. As such, the Court granted Mr.
Lindemuth's Motion to Sever Counts 114 and 115.

C. Motions to Dismiss Counts of the Indictment

Mr. Lindemuth's two other motions sought for the dismissal of
certain counts of the Indictment. Although these two motions
present very different arguments and questions, both were
controlled by the same legal standard.

Mr. Lindemuth contended that counts 1 through 104 and 111 present
multiplicity problems:

     (1) Counts 104 and 111 represent only one offense because
concealing multiple pieces of property or assets from a bankruptcy
petition constitutes just one offense;

     (2) Counts 1 through 103 are multiplicitous of count 104
because he purchased the firearms that he is charged with
concealing in counts 1 through 103 with the funds he's charged with
concealing in count 104; and

     (3) Counts 1 through 103 are multiplicitous because they
improperly make each firearm purchase the basis of an offense.

While it is true that counts 104 and 111 charge Mr. Lindemuth with
concealing two separate bank accounts from his bankruptcy
petitions, the Court held that they might constitute multiplicitous
charges if these were the only concealments charged by counts 104
and 111.

But the Court pointed out that counts 104 and 111 also charge Mr.
Lindemuth with concealment based on post-petition conduct:
concealing deposits of more than $250,000 into the Envista account
and concealing deposits of more than $1.5 million into the US Bank
account. As such, the Court held that counts 104 and 111 are not
multipicitous because they charge Mr. Lindemuth with both pre- and
post-petition concealment.

The Court also concluded that counts 1 through 103 are not
multiplicitous of count 104 because the Indictment charges two
distinct collections of impulses, which comprise 104 separate and
distinct impulses. The Court explained that the first collection --
based on the 103 firearms that Mr. Lindemuth allegedly purchases
between August 19, 2013, and December 29, 2014 -- theorizes a
criminal impulse beginning when Mr. Lindemuth acquired each
firearm. On the other hand, the second collection theorizes either:
(a) one impulse (concealing the account's existence when Mr.
Lindemuth filed his bankruptcy petitions); or (b) multiple impulses
(concealing funds of $250,000 that he deposited into the account on
an unspecified number of occasions) that the government has chosen
to charge as one crime.

Mr. Lindemuth further contended that the proper basis unit of
prosecution would be his alleged failure to disclose the firearm
purchases in monthly bankruptcy reports. So, instead of 103 counts,
Mr. Lindemuth contended that the government can charge him with no
more than 17 counts. In response, the government, argued that these
counts are not multiplicitous because the proper unit of
prosecution is each firearm.

The Court agreed with the government, explaining that once the
bankruptcy petition is filed, each act of failing to report
property (i.e., concealing it) constitutes a separate offense. But
the Court understood Mr. Lindemuth's argument that, because no
turnover order was in place requiring him to give possession of
newly acquired assets to a receiver or trustee immediately, his
duty to disclose was limited to disclosing new assets on a monthly
report.

The Court found the Indictment sufficient under Section 152(1),
charging Mr. Lindemuth with concealing the firearms listed in
counts 1 through 103 on the day he purchased them. The Court held
that Mr. Lindemuth's duty to disclose post-petition assets attached
immediately, even if he was not expected to report them until the
end of the month.

The Court explained that even though it may be impractical to
expect a debtor to report an asset the instant he acquires it,
liability under Section 152(1) attaches immediately -- Section
152(1) does not require the government to prove the date that the
concealment first began -- it just requires the government to prove
that a concealment occurred while a duty to disclose existed. So,
"the failure to disclose an asset may be charged as concealment
under Section 152(1) on the day that the duty to report attaches."
A debtor's duty to report and disclose assets attaches the day he
files the bankruptcy petition and continues throughout the pendency
of the bankruptcy.

Mr. Lindemuth next contended that the Indictment fails to charge
"specific intent to conceal any of the assets" in counts 1 through
103 because, "other than the act of purchasing the asset, the
superseding indictment fails to allege any act of concealment in
violation of 18 U.S.C. Section 152(1)."

The Court noted that the Sixth Circuit has explained, "[s]ection
152 serves a broad purpose; it exists to prevent a wide array of
behavior designed to stymie the bankruptcy system, and consequently
it targets many different kinds of conduct." The Court also noted
that several circuits have recognized that Section 152 is "a
congressional attempt to cover all of the possible methods by which
a debtor or any other person may attempt to defeat the intent and
effect of the bankruptcy law through any type of effort to keep
assets from being equitably distributed among creditors."

LONGVIEW POWER: S&P Lowers Rating to 'CCC'; Outlook Negative
------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said it lowered its rating on Longview Power LLC
to 'CCC' from 'B-'.  The outlook is negative.  At the same time,
S&P revised its recovery rating on the debt to '3' from '2',
indicating its expectations for meaningful (50%-70%; rounded
estimate: 50%) recovery if a default occurs.

"The negative outlook reflects our view that the project is
vulnerable and is dependent upon favorable business, financial, and
economic conditions to meet its financial commitments over the next
six to 12 months," said S&P Global Ratings credit analyst Kimberly
Yarborough.  "We view the issuer's capital structure to be
unsustainable in the long term given current market conditions. We
expect that the project will have difficulty meeting the 1.1x
covenant test in March 2018, at which time it could face a
default."

A downgrade could occur if S&P believes that the issuer is likely
to default over the next six months without an unforeseen positive
development.  S&P views liquidity to be on a downward trajectory
and if it is depleted sooner than December 2017, S&P could lower
the rating.

While unlikely at this time, an improvement in the rating could
occur if Longview's financial performance improved such that the
minimum DSCR was 1.2x over the tenor of the debt and S&P's assumed
post-refinance phase.  Since capacity prices are fixed through
2021, financial improvement would require a significant increase in
power prices--which S&P thinks is unlikely right now.  This would
likely require significant unforeseen market developments such that
S&P no longer views the capital structure as unsustainable.


LSB INDUSTRIES: Aims to Cut Costs, Sell Non-Core Assets
-------------------------------------------------------
LSB Industries, Inc., posted an Investor Presentation, dated June
2017 on the Company's website, http://investors.lsbindustries.com/
According to the Presentation:

   -- Operates a well-diversified chemical business with
      differentiated market positions

   -- Over $1 billion in capital invested in the last four years
      including transformative expansion at El Dorado, AR facility

   -- Operational improvement plans are enhancing plant
      reliability/performance

   -- Significant Y/Y EBITDA improvement in 2017

   -- Focus on deleveraging with excess cash

   -- Focus on expense reductions

   -- Sale of non-core assets to further deleverage

The Company has production facilities in El Dorado, Arkansas,
Cherokee, Alabama, Pryor, Oklahoma and Baytown, Texas.

                       About LSB Industries

Oklahoma City-based LSB Industries, Inc. (NYSE:LXU) and its
subsidiaries are involved in manufacturing and marketing
operations.  LSB is primarily engaged in the manufacture and sale
of chemical products and the manufacture and sale of water source
and geothermal heat pumps and air handling products.

LSB reported net income attributable to common stockholders of
$64.76 million for the year ended Dec. 31, 2016, compared to
a net loss attributable to common stockholders of $38.03 million in
2015.

                           *    *    *

In October 2016, S&P Global Ratings lowered its rating on LSB
Industries to 'CCC' from 'B-'.  "Despite using the climate control
business sale proceeds to repay some debt, the company's metrics
have weakened due to plant operational issues and a depressed
pricing environment, which have led to depressed EBITDA
expectations," said S&P Global Ratings credit analyst Allison
Schroeder.

In November 2016, Moody's Investors Service downgraded LSB's
corporate family rating (CFR) to 'Caa1' from 'B3', its probability
of default rating to 'Caa1-PD' from 'B3-PD', and the $375 million
guaranteed senior secured notes to 'Caa1' from 'B3'.  LSB's Caa1
CFR rating reflects Moody's expectations that the combined
uncertainty over operational reliability and the compressed
margins, resulting from the low nitrogen fertilizer pricing
environment, could result in continued weak financial metrics for
a protracted period.


LUMENATE TECHNOLOGIES: Has Interim OK to Use Cash Collateral
------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Texas has
granted Lumenate Technologies, LP, interim authorization to use
cash collateral until June 16, 2017, and grant MidCap Funding X
Trust and AVT Technology Solutions LLC replacement liens.

An interim hearing on the continued cash collateral use was held on
June 13, 2017.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on June 2, 2017, the
Debtor sought court permission to use cash collateral in order to
continue operating its business, which will be used to make
payments to vendors and employees and to satisfy ordinary costs of
operations, including rent, taxes and insurance.  

Pursuant a Credit and Security Agreement between the Debtor and
MidCap Financial Trust, as administrative agent and as Lender, the
Debtor granted MidCap Financial liens on practically all of the
Debtor's assets, including all goods, accounts, equipment,
inventory, general intangibles, cash, and financial assets, whether
now owned or hereafter acquired.  On the Petition Date, the Debtor
owed MidCap Funding approximately $2.28 million.  

The Debtor also owed AVT Technology Solutions LLC approximately $25
million on the Petition Date.  Thereafter, Avnet assigned any
interests and liens it had in the Avnet Collateral to AVT
Technology.

The Court finds that the interim relief requested in the Debtor's
request is necessary to the Debtor's reorganization efforts and to
avoid immediate and irreparable harm, the limited use of cash
collateral for reasonable and necessary expenses in the Debtor's
business judgment is essential to the continuing business
operations and the Debtor's ability to reorganize.

-----------------------------------------------------------------
Barry E. Mukamal, as Chapter 11 Trustee of Majorca Isles Master
Association, Inc., filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of Florida a first amended disclosure statement
dated June 12, 2017, referring to the Debtor's plan of
reorganization.

The Plan provides for the creation of a creditor trust which will
take possession of the Debtor's assets, including the proceeds of
the D.R. Horton settlement.  Each creditor of the Debtor will
receive, in full and final satisfaction of the creditor's claim
against the Debtor, a distribution of 100% of its claim with
interest at the federal judgment rate.  The creditor will receive a
pro rata share of the interests in the Creditor Trust based on the
allowed amount of the claim, plus interest at the federal judgment
rate.  The Creditor Trust, administered by Barry E. Mukamal as
Creditor Trustee, will make a Distribution to those interest
holders in the amount of 100% the holder's claim, in cash, from the
property of the Creditor Trust on the first distribution date,
which will be no later than 60 days after the Effective Date.

The balance of all remaining property of the Creditor Trust after
the occurrence of the First Distribution Date, except for any
disputed claim reserve will be held by the Creditor Trust for the
sole benefit of the Debtor.  The Creditor Trustee will work with
the Master Association to reconstitute its Board of Directors and
ensure that the Master Association is legally prepared to manage
its own affairs without oversight.  Once the Master Association has
come into full compliance with its declaration and bylaws with
respect to the Master Association's management and constitution, as
determined solely in the business judgment of the Creditor Trustee,
the Creditor Trust Balance will be distributed, in cash, to the
Master Association, together with all rights to manage and control
the Master Association.

On the Effective Date, except as otherwise expressly provided in
the Plan and pending the Transition Date and the Turnover Date, as
applicable, title to and control in the Estate Property will vest
in the Creditor Trust free and clear of all liens, encumbrances, or
interests of any kind, which Estate Property includes: (i) all cash
of the Debtor; (ii) all accounts receivable of the Debtor; (iii)
all rights to collect assessments owed to the Debtor; (iv) all
assets of the Debtor as of the Effective Date; and (v) the rights
to the D.R. Horton proceeds and all beneficial rights under the
D.R. Horton Settlement.

The Chapter 11 Trustee will have the power and authority to enter
into the Creditor Trust Agreement on the Effective Date.

MMM HOLDINGS: Moody's Affirms B3 CFR & Revises Outlook to Positive
------------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has affirmed the B3 senior debt rating
and corporate family rating (CFR) of MMM Holdings, LLC. The Ba3
insurance financial strength (IFS) rating of MMM's regulated
insurance subsidiary, MMM Healthcare, LLC. (MMM Healthcare) has
also been affirmed. The outlook on the ratings of MMM and MMM
Healthcare have been changed to positive from stable.

RATINGS RATIONALE

The change to a positive outlook reflects MMM's success in
exceeding the requirements of its amended credit agreement,
improving its profitability and maintaining adequate risk-based
capital. Furthermore, it also reflects the 4.9% increase in Federal
Medicare Advantage (MA) reimbursement rates for 2018, and MA
membership growth in 2017, an improvement after three years of
declines. MA membership growth is driven by improved benefits made
possible by higher reimbursement rates and MMM's status as the only
4-star MA plan in Puerto Rico for the 2017 payment year. These
positive trends are tempered by the uncertainty regarding health
care reform and the financial challenges in Puerto Rico
(Commonwealth of) (Caa3 negative), where a federal oversight board
created to resolve the country's fiscal crisis recently chose to
enter a bankruptcy-like process.

The Ba3 insurance financial strength and the B3 senior debt rating
reflect MMM's relatively weak business and financial profiles. The
company has a small membership level relative to other Moody's
rated health insurers and is largely concentrated in MA, with
smaller exposure to Medicaid. The focused membership base, which is
also geographically concentrated in Puerto Rico, is more risky than
peers, many of whom also have commercial exposure, including
non-risk business. Because of negative equity due to a goodwill
writedown, MMM has a debt/capital ratio above 100% and its
risk-based capital is lowest among Moody's rated health insurers.

MMM's credit strengths include its leading MA market share in
Puerto Rico and its status as the only 4-star plan for the 2017
payment year in the Commonwealth. It also has exclusive physician
contracting arrangements, which helps attract and retain
membership.

RATINGS DRIVERS

Moody's could upgrade MMM within the next 18 months if the company
continues to meet the following drivers: 1) risk-based capital
ratio (RBC) at or above 100% of company action level (112% as of
December 31, 2016); 2) EBITDA profit margins of at least 2% (4.8%
as of December 31, 2016); and 3) favorable MA reimbursement rates
that result in increased membership (MA membership up 5% 2017
YTD).

A downgrade is unlikely while Moody's maintains a positive outlook
for MMM. Factors that could lead to a removal of the positive
outlook include the following: 1) Any anticipated breach of the
amended credit facility; 2) RBC capital ratio anticipated to fall
below 100% of company action level; 3) an annual loss in 2017; and
4) a decline in Medicare Advantage membership during 2017.

The following ratings were affirmed:

MMM Holdings, LLC -- senior secured bank credit facility rating at
B3; long-term corporate family at B3

MMM Healthcare, LLC -- insurance financial strength rating at Ba3

Outlook Actions:

Issuer: MMM Holdings, LLC

-- Outlook Changed To Positive From Stable

Issuer MMM Healthcare, LLC

-- Outlook Changed To Positive From Stable

The principal methodology used in these ratings was U.S. Health
Insurance Companies published in May 2016.

Innovacare, Inc., the parent company of MMM Holdings, is a
privately-owned company incorporated in Puerto Rico and
headquartered in Fort Lee, New Jersey. As of March 31, 2017,
Innovacare Inc. reported a stockholders' deficit of approximately
$91 million. Innovacare Inc.'s total revenues for the first three
months of 2017 were $588 million with approximately 477,000
Medicare and Medicaid members in Puerto Rico.

Moody's insurance financial strength ratings are opinions of the
ability of insurance companies to pay punctually senior
policyholder claims and obligations.

NORTEL NETWORKS: US Debtors Not Obligated to Pay Former CEO
-----------------------------------------------------------
Judge Kevin Gross of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of
Delaware has the difficult task of deciding largely from a paper
record whether claimant, William A. Owens, has the right to recover
on his claim for his "Special Pension Arrangement" against not just
the Canadian Estate of Nortel Networks, but against both the
Canadian Estate and United States Estate.

Mr. Owens' claim is in the amount of $2,278,679.  If he is entitled
to his claim against both estates, Mr. Owens will receive all or
nearly all of the pension he has claimed.  The Canadian Debtors
initially objected to Mr. Owens' claim but have represented that
they will withdraw their objection if the Court disallows Mr. Owens
claim against the U.S. Debtors.

Mr. Owens began working for Nortel Networks Corporation and Nortel
Networks Limited, both Canadian Debtors, on April 27, 2004.  The
Retention Agreement specifically identifies Mr. Owens in his
official capacity with NNC and NNL.  He did not begin working as a
laborer, clerk, researcher or salesman.  Instead, NNC and NNL
employed Mr. Owens as President and Chief Executive Officer.  Mr.
Owens was eligible for certain additional pension benefits, known
as "Special Pension Benefits."  The Retention Agreement made it
clear that "the Company," defined to be NNC and NNL, "will arrange
to pay you a monthly pension benefit following your retirement."

Mr. Owens worked as President and CEO for NNC and NNL until his
"employment relationship with the Corporation [ceased] on November
18, 2005."  It is in the Termination Agreement where the entities
responsible for the Special Pension Arrangement becomes muddled.

The facts show that Mr. Owens may be entitled to his claim against
the Canadian Estate, but not against the U.S. Estate.  The Court
does not understand, and there was no explanation given, why NNI
appears in the Termination Agreement when it is NNC and NNL who
agreed to pay Mr. Owens his Special Pension Arrangement.  It may be
true as he repeatedly argued that Mr. Owens was a special employee,
but it is clear from the Retention Agreement that Mr. Owens was a
special employee of NNC and NNL, not of NNI. There was no evidence
presented at the Hearing by Mr. Owens that he ever did any work for
NNI, not any. The basis for the Court's decision that the Special
Pension Arrangement was the obligation of the Canadian Debtors (NNC
and NNL) is just that: Mr. Owens was an employee of NNC and NNL,
and NNI has no responsibility for the obligations of the affiliated
Canadian Debtors NNC and NNL. The facts show that NNI is the wrong
entity for Mr. Owens to file a claim against.

The U.S. Debtors also argue that all of the other employees' claims
were limited to allowance in either the United States or Canada,
not both. The Court does not premise its decision on this fact. Had
the U.S. Debtors and the Canadian Debtors both been obligated to
Mr. Owens, his claim might have been allowed against both Estates.
Only the Canadian Debtors were obligated.

Judge Gross' review of the facts and the law cause it to conclude
that upon the Canadian Monitor's withdrawal of the Objection to Mr.
Owens' claim against the Canadian Estate, it must sustain the
objection to Mr. Owens' claim against the U.S. Debtors.

European affiliates into administration under the control of
individuals from Ernst & Young LLP.  Other Nortel affiliates have
commenced and in the future may commence additional creditor
protection, insolvency and dissolution proceedings around the

Committee of Retired Employees and the Official Committee of
Long-Term Disability Participants tapped Alvarez & Marsal
Healthcare Industry Group as financial advisor.  The Retiree
Committee is represented by McCarter & English LLP as Delaware
counsel, and Togut Segal & Segal serves as the Retiree Committee.
The Committee retained Alvarez & Marsal Healthcare Industry Group
as financial advisor, and Kurtzman Carson Consultants LLC as its
communications agent.

Several entities, particularly, Nortel Government Solutions
Incorporated and Nortel Networks (CALA) Inc., have material
operations and are not part of the bankruptcy proceedings.

As of Sept. 30, 2008, Nortel Networks Corp. reported consolidated
assets of $11.6 billion and consolidated liabilities of $11.8
billion.  The Nortel Companies' U.S. businesses are primarily
conducted through Nortel Networks Inc., which is the parent of
majority of the U.S. Nortel Companies.  As of Sept. 30, 2008, NNI
had assets of about $9 billion and liabilities of $3.2 billion,
which do not include NNI's guarantee of some or all of the Nortel
Companies' about $4.2 billion of unsecured public debt.

Since the commencement of the various insolvency proceedings,
Nortel has sold its business units and other assets to various
purchasers.  Nortel has collected roughly $9 billion for
distribution to creditors.  Of the total, $4.5 billion came from

-------------------------------------------------------
Northern Oil and Gas, Inc., a Minnesota corporation, issued a
letter on June 13, 2017, to Bahram Akradi, a shareholder of the
Company, regarding the recent request by Mr. Akradi to join the
board of directors of the Company.

"Thank you for your interest in serving as a member of the board of
directors (the "Board") of Northern Oil and Gas, Inc.  We
appreciate your interest in the Company's future opportunities and
growth.  The Board is similarly excited and optimistic about the
Company's near and long term future and, along with our management
team, is enthusiastic to take the necessary actions to drive
shareholder value creation.  The Board has determined that it is
not appropriate to increase its size at this time.  However, we
look forward to continuing our work together to maximize value for
all shareholders.  As you may know, in the last year the Company
has added two new directors, and at our recent 2017 annual meeting
of shareholders all directors received at least 97.5% of votes cast
in favor of their election.

"The Board remains committed to value creation for our
shareholders, especially in light of the challenges of operating in
a lower commodity price environment.  To that end, the Company
continues to work with its financial advisor, Tudor, Pickering,
Holt & Co.  We are dedicated to positioning the Company to take
advantage of opportunities for growth in an industry that is
beginning to emerge from the worst commodity price correction in
recent memory."

ORANGE COUNTY NURSERY: Court Issues Stay Pending Plan Order Appeal
------------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Meredith A. Jury of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Central
District of California has entered final orders in Orange County
Nursery, Inc.'s Chapter 11 case, including the Order Confirming
Fourth Amended Plan of Reorganization (As Modified) and the Order
Allowing the Claim of the Minority Voting Trust.  The Debtor,
controlled by the Majority shareholders, filed its Notice of Appeal
of those orders and requested a certification for a direct appeal
to the Ninth Circuit.

At a hearing on April 4, 2017, regarding the modifications to the
Fourth Amended Plan, which needed to be made in accordance with the
court's Memorandum of Decision re Treatment of the Minority Voting
Trust's Claim and Modifications to Chapter 11 Plan, the Debtor
raised issues regarding how certain provisions in the plan would be
implemented while an appeal of the confirmation order was pending.
The court construed the Debtor's comments as a premature request
for a stay pending appeal. Because the court had already determined
that it would issue a stay pending appeal when the anticipated
appeals were filed, it notified the parties during the April 4
hearing that it would issue a stay once the Notice of Appeal was
filed. Therefore, the Order Imposing Stay Pending Appeal is entered
based both on the oral motion of the Debtor and on the court's own
violation.

The factors to be considered in determining whether to issue a stay
pending appeal are "(1) whether the stay applicant has made a
strong showing that he is likely to succeed on the merits; (2)
whether the applicant will be irreparably injured absent a stay;
(3) whether issuance of the stay will substantially injure the
other parties interested in the proceeding; and (4) where the
public interest lies." Nken v Holder, 556 U.S. 418, 434 (2009); See
also Indiana State Police Pension Trust v Chrysler LLC, 556 U.S.
960 (2009); McDermott v Ampersand Pub., LLC, 559 F.3d 950,957 (9th
Cir. 2010), citing Winter v Natural Res. Def. Council, 555 U.S.7,
20-22 (2008).

Keeping in mind that the existence of a serious legal question is
sufficient to satisfy the likelihood of success on the merits
prong, Judge Jury analyzes why a stay in this case pending Debtor's
appeal to the Ninth Circuit is appropriate. After it valued the
equity in Debtor on the petition date and from that valuation
determined the monetary value of MVT's claim, findings subject to a
clearly erroneous standard of review on appeal and unlikely to be
overturned, the court then was required to determine how MVT's
claim should be treated in the chapter 11 plan.

This second ruling, which is captured in the Fourth Amended Plan of
Reorganization (As Modified) and the Order Allowing the Claim of
the Minority Voting Trust, required the interpretation of legal
principles, a ruling normally subject to de novo review by an
appellate court. Moreover, this court's ultimate ruling on the
treatment of the claim was premised on two prior District Court
Orders re Bankruptcy Appeal, which had reversed on legal grounds
earlier rulings of this court. As a consequence, there is a high
likelihood that the circuit court's review of the bankruptcy
court's rulings will be de novo, a standard of review more likely
to result in reversal than clear error.

The second and third factors are logically considered together,
particularly in light of the balancing test the court must conduct.
This court's ruling would have a substantial, perhaps devastating
impact on the Majority and perhaps on Debtor, as it would turn the
controlling ownership upside down. Those not in control before,
MVT, would control the board as majority and the prior controlling
owners would be relegated to second chair. Once that switch is
implemented, its effect will be irreparable to the majority. On the
flip side, although MVT has waited almost ten years since it
commenced its corporate dissolution action in state court to either
gain control of OCN or be paid the 2009 monetary value of its
ownership interest, waiting a bit longer will be just that -- a
wait -- without a substantial daily impact on the lives of the
beneficiaries of the trust.

If the court did not issue a stay, corporate control would go to
MVT, causing unknown changes to the operation of OCN and most
certainly having an impact on the daily lives of several
individuals. On the other hand, with a stay in place, business
would continue as usual until the ruling is affirmed, at which time
an orderly transition to new controlling ownership could take
place. These factors overwhelmingly favor issuance of a stay.

California Corporation, Chapter 11, Debtor(s), Case No.
6:15-bk-12078 MJ (Bankr. C.D. Cal.).

ORIGINAL SOUPMAN: Deal With Soup Supplier Has Interim Approval
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Original Soupman, Inc., and its affiliated debtors filed with
the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware a motion for
authority to make a $100,000 partial payment for critical vendor
IPMF, LLC's prepetition claim and to enter into a settlement
agreement that paves the way for IPMF's shipments to resume.

Pursuant to a contract dated July 14, 2016, IPMF produces,
packages, stores, and ships the Debtors' gourmet soups based on the
Debtors' propriety recipes, formulas, and procedures.  The Contract
contained a schedule detailing the volume IPMF would produce and
the pricing charged to the Debtors based on that volume.

Despite a successful relationship between the parties, the Debtors
began falling behind on making timely payments in accordance with
the Contract for the volumes IPMF produced in early 2017.  With the
Debtors balance owing to IPMF reaching $345,638 (the "Claim"), the
IPMF terminated the Contract pursuant to its terms in early May
2017.

Since then, the Debtors and IPMF have negotiated a resolution to
the outstanding balance and the continued production and shipment
of the Debtors' products.  Without IPMF's production and shipment
of the products, the Debtors said that their cash flow would
effectively cease and the Chapter 11 Cases would fail.

Further, the Debtors would be required to seek a new vendor, which
would take approximately four to six months of investigating a
facility that could produce the required volume, negotiation of a
new contract, and testing and ramp up production time.  Those three
to four months of downtime would be fatal to the Debtors' business
and any value for its assets and estates.

Pursuant to the Settlement Agreement between the parties, the
Debtors have agreed: (a) to pay IPMF $100,000 as a critical vendor
payment upon entry of an interim order approving the Motion and
(b), upon entry of a final order approving the Motion, obtain
approval of the partial payment on a final basis and agree pay the
remaining amount of the Claim out of the proceeds of any sale of
substantially all the Debtors' assets or a plan of reorganization.

Judge Laurie Selber Silverstein on June 20, 2017, entered an order
granting the Motion on an interim basis.  The Debtors are
authorized to pay $100,000 of the Claim subject to approval of the
payment in a final order approving the Settlement Agreement.  The
Court will hold a final hearing to consider approval of the Motion
on July 10, 2017, at 1:00 p.m. (ET).  Objections are due July 5,
2017.

                        Road to Bankruptcy

Michael Wyse, interim CFO and Chief Restructuring Officer of the
Debtors, in court filings narrated the events preceding the
Debtors' bankruptcy filing.

Mr. Wyse relates that the Debtors' current CEO, Jamieson Karson,
joined the company as CEO in August 2015.  At that time, the
Debtors had $8 million in liabilities.  In July 2016, the company
received net loan proceeds of $3.5 million from Hillair Capital
Investments, L.P, bringing the total liabilities at that time to
approximately $11 million.  The Debtors used the net proceeds to
purchase inventory, market and promote their products, and operate
their business.  That funding, however, was not enough to sustain
the Debtors' operations long-term.  Currently, there are $11.5
million in liabilities and $1.3 million in assets.

In May 2017, the Debtors' then-Chief Financial Officer and
President, Bob Bertrand, was indicted for failure to pay certain
payroll and withholding taxes for the period 2010 to 2014.  Mr.
Bertrand has been suspended without pay pending the outcome.

Wyse Advisors managing partner Micahel Wyse has succeeded Mr.
Bertrand as Interim Chief Financial Officer.  Mr. Bertrand's recent
indictment has significantly impeded the Debtors' ability to secure
further financing for their business.  As a result, the Debtor
cannot purchase inventory or pay its bills on a current basis.  As
such, the Debtors' exhaustion of existing financing and the limited
interest from other financial providers necessitated the filing of
the Chapter 11 Cases.

ORIGINAL SOUPMAN: June 27 Meeting Set to Form Creditors' Panel
--------------------------------------------------------------
Andy Vara, acting United States Trustee for Region 3, will hold an
organizational meeting on June 27, 2017, at 10:00 a.m. in the
bankruptcy case of The Original Soupman, Inc.

The meeting will be held at:

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

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

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

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

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

affirmed its 'BB' long-term rating on the Michigan Public
Educational Facilities Authority's series 2010 limited-obligation
revenue bonds, issued for Dr. Joseph F. Pollack Academic Center of
Excellence (PACE).

"The outlook revision reflects our view of PACE's improved
financial operations in fiscal 2016, which we anticipate will
moderate somewhat in fiscal 2017 but remain manageable at the
current rating level," said S&P Global Ratings credit analyst Kaiti
Wang.  "We assessed the academy's financial profile at vulnerable
in light of its slim liquidity and a lack of sustained surplus
operating performance, though operations have seen an improving
trend in the past two years and debt burden is relatively low," Ms.
Wang added.

PACE is a stand-alone kindergarten through eighth-grade (K-8)
charter school located in Southfield, Mich.  The academy serves
primarily students in the inner-city Detroit area (Wayne County),
and has now expanded to serve additional students in the
neighboring Oakland County.  The demographic of the students
remains largely unchanged, with about 100% of students qualifying
for free and reduced lunch.


PUERTO RICO: Fiscal Board Slammed for Restructuring Deal Delay
--------------------------------------------------------------
Alex Wolf, writing for Bankruptcy Law360, reports that Rep. Rob
Bishop, R-Utah, the head of the U.S. House Committee on Natural
Resources, sent a letter to the chairman of the Financial Oversight
and Management Board of Puerto Rico, criticizing the board
supervising Puerto Rico's troubled finances for delaying approval
of a $9 billion restructuring deal between the territory's power
utility and its bondholders that Congress has already blessed.

                       About Puerto Rico

Puerto Rico is a self-governing commonwealth in association with
the United States that's facing a massive bond debt of $70
billion, a 68% debt-to-GDP ratio and negative economic growth in
nine of the last 10 years.

The Commonwealth of Puerto Rico has sought bankruptcy protection,
aiming to restructure its massive $74 billion debt-load and $49
billion in pension obligations.

The debt restructuring petition was filed by Puerto Rico's
financial oversight board in U.S. District Court in Puerto Rico
(Case No. 17-01578) on May 3, 2017, and was made under Title III
of 2016's U.S. Congressional rescue law known as the Puerto Rico
Oversight, Management, and Economic Stability Act ("PROMESA").

The Financial Oversight and Management Board later commenced Title
III cases for the Puerto Rico Sales Tax Financing Corporation
(COFINA) on May 5, 2017, and the Employees Retirement System (ERS)
and the Puerto Rico Highways and Transportation Authority (HTA) on
May 21.

U.S. Chief Justice John Roberts has appointed U.S. District Judge
Laura Taylor Swain to oversee the Title III cases.

The Oversight Board has hired as advisors, Proskauer Rose LLP and
O'Neill & Borges LLC as legal counsel, McKinsey & Co. as strategic
consultant, Citigroup Global Markets as municipal investment
banker, and Ernst & Young, as financial advisor.

Martin J. Bienenstock, Esq., and Philip M. Abelson, Esq., of
Proskauer Rose; and Hermann D. Bauer, Esq., at O'Neill & Borges
are onboard as attorneys.

McKinsey & Co. is the Board's strategic consultant, Ernst & Young
is the Board's financial advisor, and Citigroup Global Markets
Inc. is the Board's municipal investment banker.

PUERTO RICO: Parties Object to Commonwealth-COFINA Procedures
-------------------------------------------------------------
BankruptcyData.com reported that multiple parties -- including
Mutual Fund Group and the Puerto Rico Funds, National Public
Finance Guarantee, Ambac Assurance and the COFINA Senior
Bondholders' Coalition -- filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
separate objections to the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico's motion for
an order approving procedures to resolve the Commonwealth-COFINA
dispute. The Mutual Fund Group and the Puerto Rico Funds objection
asserts, "The Mutual Fund Group and the Puerto Rico Funds
('Objectors'), who collectively hold over $4 billion in COFINA
senior and subordinate bonds, object to the Debtors' Motion for
Order Approving Procedure to Resolve Commonwealth-COFINA Dispute .
. . .  The Court should deny the Protocol Motion. The Oversight
Board seeks -- without any legal authority -- to wrest control over
the Commonwealth-COFINA Dispute4 through entry of an order (the'
Proposed Order') that would exceed the bounds of PROMESA and
violate the United States Constitution. The Proposed Order would
appoint an agent to enforce COFINA's right to pledged revenues in
which COFINA itself has only minimal equity -- the agent would act
as a receiver. There is no authority for such appointment. The
Proposed Order provides for a collusive litigation between the
Oversight Board's own agents, on the Oversight Board's own
schedule, with the Oversight Board retaining the power to settle,
in violation of Article III of the United States Constitution . . .
. Puerto Rico law is the lynchpin. Under the United States
Constitution, federal law cannot deprive COFINA and its bondholders
of property interests that are valid under Puerto Rico law. If,
under Puerto Rico law, COFINA owns the revenues it pledged to its
bonds, PROMESA is powerless to take the revenues away. The only
issue in this dispute is whether Puerto Rico statutes transferring
revenues to COFINA and securing its bonds are valid under Puerto
Rico's Constitution -- an unprecedented issue that can only be
decided definitively by the Puerto Rico Supreme Court, and can be
so decided prior to November 1."

date.  It also proposed to pay Class 4 creditors 5.97% of their
claims and make a lump-sum distribution of $4,000 on the effective

RICKY WILLIAMSON: Selling Sunflower Property to Pay Planters Bank
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Ricky D. Williamson and Cindy M. Williamson ask the U.S. Bankruptcy
for the Northern District of Mississippi to authorize the sale of
real property described as "312 Acres Hunting Land in Sunflower
County Co-Owner-Marwill Skallion, Jr.," located at the West
One-Half of Section 22, Township 24 North, Range 4 West, Sunflower
County, Mississippi, to Steve Skelton for an amount sufficient to
satisfy the deed of trust in favor of Planters Bank & Trust Co. and
to significantly reduce the amount owing to Pinnacle Agriculture
Distribution, Inc.

The Debtors listed on Schedule A/B - Property the property,
assigning thereto a current market value of $250,000.  The real
property is subject to WRP easement pursuant to Instrument No.
2008005277 dated June 25, 2008, filed in the land records of
Sunflower County in Indianola, Mississippi.

Mr. Williamson, also known as Ricky Dean Williamson, owns a
one-half interest in the property, and said property is not claimed
as exempt by the Debtors.  Thus, Mr. Williamson's one-half interest
is an asset of the bankruptcy estate.  Additionally, said property
is encumbered by a deed of trust in favor of Planters Bank,
Ruleville, Mississippi, in the current approximate amount of
$350,000, and by a deed of trust in favor of Pinnacle Agriculture,
in the sum of $1,503,675.

A cash offer for purchase of the property has been made by the
Buyer in an amount sufficient to satisfy the deed of trust in favor
of Planters Bank and to significantly reduce the amount owing to
Pinnacle Agriculture so as to induce it to release its deed of
trust against the property.  Said liens will attach to the sale
proceeds, which will be used for the purpose of paying the Debtors'
obligations.

The closing agent should be authorized to pay from said funds
sellers' portion of the closing costs, being one-half of the deed
preparation, one-half of the owner title insurance/search fee,
one-half of the recording fees and one-half of the closing attorney
fees.  The balance of the closing costs, including the real estate
commission, will be paid by the Buyer.  

The closing agent should then be authorized to pay the indebtedness
owing to Planters Bank and then to pay Mr. Williamson's one-half of
the balance of the proceeds after payment of sellers' portion of
the closing costs, the payment to Planters Bank and proration of
taxes, to Pinnacle Agriculture, with the remaining one-half payable
to the co-owner, Marwill Skallion, Jr.  Due to the confidentiality
clause in the Purchase Agreement, the selling price will be held in
total confidence and further will not be revealed.  The purchaser
has paid considerable earnest money to the realtor and proposes to
pay the balance of said purchase price immediately upon the entry
of an order approving the sale and execution and delivery of a
Warranty Deed from sellers.

The anticipated sale of the property described will be made subject
to that certain WRP easement pursuant to Instrument No. 2008005277
dated June 25, 2008, filed in the land records of Sunflower County
in Indianola, Mississippi.  Any and all unpaid and/or outstanding
property and/or privilege taxes owing and/or to be owed on the
subject property, will be prorated as of the date of closing.

Considering the current market, the Debtors are of the opinion that
the cash offer for said real property is reasonable, is in the best
interest of the bankruptcy estate, and should be accepted.

Ricky D. Williamson and Cindy M. Williamson sought Chapter 11
protection (Bankr. N.D. Miss. Case No. 16-10672) on Feb. 26, 2016.


ROBERT HILL PC: Court Abstains from Bankruptcy Proceeding
---------------------------------------------------------
Judge Jimmy L. Croom of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Western
District of Tennessee grants Movants Boren & Boyd, P.C.'s motion
for the Court to abstain from the bankruptcy proceedings under 11
U.S.C. section 305.

The Movants urge this court to either dismiss or suspend the
proceedings, arguing that abstention is in the best interests of
both the debtor and creditors. The Debtor asserts that abstention
would not be in the Debtor's best interest and, therefore, the
Movants have not met the burden required by section 305.

Section 305(a)(1) of the Bankruptcy Code provides that "(a) The
court, after notice and a hearing, may dismiss a case under this
title, or may suspend all proceedings in a case under this title,
at any time if --(1) the interests of creditors and debtors would
be better served by such dismissal or suspension[.]"  A court's
decision to dismiss or suspend pursuant to section 305(a) "is
discretionary and must be made on a case-by-case basis."). While
various courts have established and applied different factor-tests
to determine whether abstention is appropriate, there is not a
particular balancing test that must be applied. Rather, the only
finding required by statute is that abstention be in the best
interests of both the creditors and the debtor.

Abstention is especially appropriate in cases where the bankruptcy
proceeding is essentially a two-party dispute involving claims that
should be resolved in state court, the Court held.  Movants argue
that the present case resembles this kind of two-party dispute for
which there are adequate remedies in state court. Debtor asserts
that its adversary complaint establishes the multiplicity of
parties to this proceeding. The claims brought by Debtor in the
adversary complaint, however, reflect the same claims raised by
Movants in their chancery court complaint, as well as the
counterclaims raised by Debtor in its answer thereto. Moreover, the
fact that Debtor has more than one creditor "does not, in itself,
overcome the overriding nature of the bankruptcy case as a
two-party dispute."

Courts have determined that situations in which multiple creditors
file an involuntary petition against the debtor are essentially
two-party disputes when the creditors' claims arose out of the same
transaction or occurrence, and those claims ultimately gave rise to
the same collections action concurrently pending in state court.
Here, the state court case and the bankruptcy case are essentially
two-party disputes revolving around state law causes of action
arising from claims for breach of contract and other related causes
of action. Therefore, the state court is the appropriate forum to
hear these claims.

Considerations of the economy and efficiency of the administration
of the bankruptcy proceeding also weigh in favor of abstention
where multiple litigation exists, and the state court is an
adequate forum to protect the interests of the creditors and
debtors.

Finally, filing a bankruptcy petition for a non-bankruptcy purpose
is a factor weighing in favor of abstention. When making an inquiry
into the bankruptcy purpose, the Court will consider the motivation
of the parties who are seeking relief in the bankruptcy court.

Movants argue that Debtor's primary purpose for filing its
bankruptcy petition was as a litigation tactic or way to circumvent
an unfavorable outcome in state court. In refuting this claim,
Debtor states that its purpose in filing its chapter 11 petition is
to "allow Debtor to wind down its business relationship with
[Movants], ensure that all creditors can be efficiently and
equitably paid, and continue its operations as a two-attorney law
firm." However, as Movants point out, Debtor's prior statements
directly conflict with its position of intending to reorganize and
continue as a firm.

As further proof that Debtor filed its petition for a
non-bankruptcy purpose, Movants cite to Debtor's Emergency Motion
to Clarify filed in chancery court on Jan. 23, 2017. This evidence,
considered in conjunction with the inconsistent positions taken by
Debtor between the state court and bankruptcy proceedings, suggests
that Debtors' purpose for filing its chapter 11 petition was
motivated by non-bankruptcy reasons. Accordingly, this factor
weighs in favor of abstention. Therefore, the Court finds that
Movants carried their burden of proving that abstention will better
serve the interests of Debtor and its creditors.

The Court concludes that, pursuant to 11 U.S.C. Section 305(a)(1),
abstention is in the best interest of both the Debtor and
creditors. As such, the Court will abstain from the bankruptcy
proceeding.

Scientific Games reported a net loss of $353.7 million on $2.88
billion of total revenue for the year ended Dec. 31, 2016, compared
to a net loss of $1.39 billion on $2.75 billion of total revenue
for the year ended Dec. 31, 2015.

As of March 31, 2017, Scientific Games had $7.07 billion in total
assets, $9.06 billion in total liabilities and a total
stockholders' deficit of $1.99 billion.

                           *    *    *

In November 2014, Moody's Investors Service downgraded Scientific
Games Corporation's Corporate Family Rating to 'B2' from 'B1'
following the announcement that the company had completed its
merger with Bally Technologies, Inc.

As reported by the TCR on Aug. 9, 2016, S&P Global Ratings lowered
its corporate credit rating on Scientific Games to 'B' from 'B+'.
The outlook is stable.  "The downgrade of Scientific Games reflects
our forecast for lower EBITDA growth and weaker credit measures
than we previously expected," said S&P Global Ratings credit
analyst Ariel Silverberg.


SCIENTIFIC GAMES: Adopts Rights Pact to Protect Stockholder Value
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Board of Directors of Scientific Games Corporation approved,
and the Company entered into, a Rights Agreement, between the
Company and American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, LLC.  The
Rights Agreement provides for a dividend of one preferred share
purchase right for each share of Class A Common Stock, par value
$0.01 per share of the Company outstanding as of June 29, 2017.
Each Right entitles the holder to purchase from the Company one
ten-thousandth of a share of Series C Junior Participating
Preferred Stock for a purchase price of $109.00, subject to
adjustment as provided in the Rights Agreement.

The Board adopted the Rights Agreement in an effort to protect
stockholder value by strengthening the Company's ability to secure
and maintain the Company's good standing with respect to its
licenses, contracts, franchises and other regulatory approvals
related to the operations of gaming and related businesses now or
hereafter engaged in by the Company or any of its affiliates, which
licenses, contracts, franchises or other approvals are conditioned
upon some or all of the holders of the Company's securities
possessing prescribed qualifications.  The Board determined that
the Company's ability to enforce the provision of Article Tenth of
the Restated Certificate of Incorporation would be potentially
diminished if a 5% or greater shareholder located outside the
United States was found not subject to jurisdiction in the state of
Delaware for purposes of Article Tenth of the Charter and the
Rights Agreement while maintaining the ability to transfer its
shares of the Company without any visibility.  The Rights Agreement
is limited in scope and specifically tailored to address this
concern.  Due to the regulatory regime to which the Company is
subject, any shareholder owning 5% or more of the Company's stock
is already required to comply with the requirements of various
state gaming regulators, including potentially limited submissions
to jurisdiction.  In this regard, the Company believes that the
limited submission to jurisdiction that may be required to comply
with the Rights Agreement is similar to actions that a 5%
shareholder is already required to take in order to comply with the
requirements of a number of the Company's regulators.

In connection with the adoption of the Rights Agreement, the Board
adopted a Certificate of Designation of Series C Junior
Participating Preferred Stock.  The Certificate of Designation was
filed with the Secretary of State of the State of Delaware and
became effective on June 19, 2017.

SEARS CANADA: CA$450M Financing from Existing Lenders Approved
--------------------------------------------------------------
Sears Canada Inc. (TSX: SCC; NASDAQ: SRSC) and certain of its
subsidiaries on June 22, 2017, won approval from the Ontario
Superior Court of Justice (Commercial List) to obtain
debtor-in-possession financing in the aggregate principal amount of
CA$450 million, with (i) the Company's existing ABL lenders, with
Wells Fargo Capital Finance Corporation acting as administrative
agent, and (ii) the Company's existing term loan lenders, with GACP
Finance Co., LLC, acting as administrative agent.

The DIP Financing was approved as part of the Ontario Court's
initial order in proceedings under the Companies' Creditors
Arrangement Act ("CCAA").  The Initial Order provides for a stay of
proceedings in favor of the Sears Canada Group until July 22,
2017.

The DIP Financing is expected to provide the Sears Canada Group
with sufficient liquidity to maintain business operations
throughout the CCAA proceedings.  The Sears Canada Group will work
to complete its restructuring in a timely fashion and hopes to exit
CCAA protection as soon as possible in 2017, better positioned to
capitalize on the opportunities that exist in the Canadian retail
marketplace.

Billy Wong, Executive Vice-President and Chief Financial Officer of
Sears Canada, explained that Sears Canada and its subsidiaries
urgently need to secure access to interim financing to successfully
restructure their business.  Because of its current liquidity
challenges, and as demonstrated in the 13-week cash flow forecast,
the Sears Canada Group requires interim financing to provide
stability, continue going concern operations and to restructure its
business as a part of its CCAA proceeding.

Subject to certain terms and conditions, the Term Loan Lenders and
the Revolving Facility Lenders have agreed to provide two interim
financing facilities. The DIP Facility consists of a $300 million
revolving credit facility as well as a term loan in the amount of
the USD equivalent of CA$150 million.  The DIP Facility is
guaranteed, jointly and severally, by the Applicants.

The funds available under the DIP Facility will be used to meet the
Sears Canada Group's funding requirements during the CCAA
proceedings in accordance with the Cash Flow Forecast, including
the payment of professional fees and other costs and expenses in
connection with the CCAA proceedings.

The DIP Facility includes the following commercial terms:

     (a) Interest: (i) DIP Term Loan: LIBOR + 11.0% (with a floor
                       of 1%) or U.S. prime rate + 10.0%.

                  (ii) DIP Revolver (on cash advances): LIBOR +
                       4.50% or Prime rate + 3.50%.

                 (iii) DIP Revolver (on LOCs): (a) 4.50% per
                       annum, in the case of a Standby LOC; and
                       (b) 4.00% per annum, in the case of a
                       merchandise (commercial) LOC.

     (b) Commitment Fee: DIP Term Loan: 3.5%. DIP Revolver: 1.25%.

     (c) Unused Line Fee: DIP Revolver: 0.375%.

     (d) Exit Fee: DIP Term Loan 1.5%.184

There are a number of outstanding and undrawn LOCs under the
Revolving Credit Facility. In the event that a beneficiary draws on
an LOC from and after the commencement of these CCAA proceedings,
Sears Canada's obligation to reimburse the Revolver Lenders is
triggered.  The DIP Facility provides that from and after the
comeback hearing, the amount of any outstanding Reimbursement
Obligation will be deemed to be an advance under the DIP Revolver
secured by the DIP Revolver Charge.

Undrawn LOCs remain obligations of Sears Canada under the Revolving
Credit Facility.  Pursuant to the DIP Agreement, the undrawn LOCs
will be cash collateralized by Sears Canada following the comeback
hearing from cash on hand or through the use of the DIP Facility.
The funds to cash collateralize the undrawn LOCs will be deposited
into the L/C Collateral Account.

As part of the Sears Canada Group's consideration of strategic
alternatives, Sears Canada's current lenders were canvassed on
their willingness to provide DIP financing.  In the view of the
Financial Advisor, the Sears Canada Group's existing lenders were
in the best position to provide DIP financing in a timely manner as
they were already familiar with the Sears Canada Group, its complex
business, and its collateral base.  

Although discussions were held with another potential financier,
BMO Nesbitt Burns Inc., the financial advisor of the Applicants,
was of the view that, given the rapidly deteriorating financial
position of the Applicants, any non-current lender would likely be
unable to conduct due diligence and provide committed DIP financing
in the urgent timeframe required. Further, a DIP facility provided
by Sears Canada's current lenders will avoid potentially
distracting litigation involving a third party priming DIP
facility.

The DIP Revolver and the DIP Term Loan are proposed to be secured
by Court-ordered security interests, liens and charges on all of
the present and future assets, property and undertaking of the
Applicants, including any cash on hand at the day of the filing.
The DIP Lenders' Charges will not secure any obligation that exists
before the Initial Order is made.  The DIP  Lenders' Charges are to
have priority over all other security interests, charges and liens
other than the Administration Charge, the FA Charge, the KERP
Priority Charge and the Directors' Priority Charge.  The DIP
Revolver Charge is to have priority over the DIP Term Loan Charge
with respect to the Wells Fargo Priority Collateral.  The DIP Term
Loan Charge is to have priority over the DIP Revolver Charge with
respect to all other Property.

Notwithstanding any other provision of the proposed Initial Order
to be entered by the Ontario Court, the L/C Collateral Account
shall be deemed to be subject to a lien, security, charge, and
security interest in favour of Wells Fargo in its capacity as Agent
under the DIP Revolving Credit Agreement (the "DIP Revolver
Agent").  The charges as they may attach to the L/C Collateral
Account, including by operation of law or otherwise (a) shall rank
junior in priority to the lien, security, charge, and security
interest in favour of the DIP Revolver Agent in respect of the L/C
Collateral Account; and (b) shall attach to the L/C Collateral
Account only to the extent of the rights, if any, of any Sears
Canada Group entity to the return of any cash from the L/C
Collateral Account in accordance with the DIP Revolving Credit
Agreement.  It is a condition precedent to the availability of the
DIP Facility that the Initial Order be in form and substance
satisfactory to the DIP Lenders, including in respect of the
granting of the DIP Lenders' Charges.  

The maturity date of the DIP Facility is the earliest of (i)
December 21, 2017; (ii) termination of the DIP Facility by Sears
Canada; and (iii) the occurrence of an "Event of Default" to be
defined in each applicable DIP Credit Agreement.  The DIP Credit
Agreements also contain a series of milestones that are required to
be met.

SEARS CANADA: Commences Proceedings Under Canada's CCAA
-------------------------------------------------------
Sears Canada Inc. (TSX: SCC; NASDAQ: SRSC) and certain of its
subsidiaries on June 22, 2017, applied to the Ontario Superior
Court of Justice (Commercial List) for protection under the
Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act ("CCAA"), in order to continue
to restructure its business.

If granted, the Sears Canada Group will work to complete its
restructuring in a timely fashion and hopes to exit CCAA protection
as soon as possible in 2017, better positioned to capitalize on the
opportunities that exist in the Canadian retail marketplace.

"The Sears Canada Group is entering these proceedings with the
intention of emerging as a strong, more focused competitor in the
Canadian retail industry.  It plans to continue to operate a large
number of stores, continue to maintain significant employment, and
to service its customers across Canada.  However, to achieve that
goal and to right-size its business, the Sears Canada Group
anticipates that a number of stores will have to be closed,
operating costs reduced, business lines exited, and headcount
reductions implemented.  Management expects that the company that
emerges from this CCAA proceeding will be well-positioned to
capitalize on the opportunities that exist in the Canadian retail
marketplace. In order to achieve that objective and to continue
their restructuring efforts, the Applicants require a stay of
proceedings and related relief under the CCAA," Billy Wong,
Executive Vice-President and Chief Financial Officer of Sears
Canada, said in an affidavit submitted to the Ontario Court.

The filing was not unexpected as the Company has incurred
significant losses for the past several years and announced in
mid-June that it is considering a financial restructuring or sale.

Sears Canada was spun-off as an independent company in 2012.  But
Sears Holdings, which owns both the Sears and Kmart brands in the
United States, still owns 12% of its shares.  Sears Holdings CEO
and principal shareholder Eddie Lampert also own a total of 45% of
Sears Canada.

                          Initial Order

Sears Canada and its subsidiaries on June 22, 2017, were
immediately granted an order (the "Initial Order") from the Ontario
Court under the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act (the "CCAA").

Among other things, the Initial Order provides for a stay of
proceedings in favor of the Sears Canada Group for an initial
period of 30-days, subject to extension thereafter as the Court
deems appropriate, and the appointment of FTI Consulting Canada
Inc. as Monitor in the CCAA proceedings.  

The Initial Order also authorizes the Sears Canada Group to obtain
debtor-in-possession financing in the aggregate principal amount of
CA$450 million (the "DIP Financing"), with (i) the Company's
existing ABL lenders, with Wells Fargo Capital Finance Corporation
acting as administrative agent, and (ii) the Company's existing
term loan lenders, with GACP Finance Co., LLC acting as
administrative agent.

The Initial Order does not apply to Sears Canada pension plan
assets -- i.e., the amounts that have previously been contributed
into the pension plan -- which assets are held separate from the
assets of the Sears Canada Group. Accordingly, monthly pension
payments to beneficiaries from that pension plan are not affected
by the Initial Order and will continue in accordance with the terms
of the plan.

                        Capital Structure

As at April 29, 2017, the Sears Canada Group had (i) total assets
of $1.187 billion, including current assets of $942 million and
noncurrent assets of $245 million, and (ii) total liabilities of
$1.108 billion, including current liabilities of $528 million and
non-current liabilities of $580 million.

The Sears Canada Group's long-term liabilities consist primarily of
the $120.4 million obligation in respect of long-term debt and the
$294.9 million obligation in respect of Sears Canada's retirement
plans.

As of June 17, 2017, the Sears Canada Group had cash on hand of
$125.3 million and inventory with a cost value of $648.1 million.

The secured debt and credit facilities are comprised of:

   * a CA$33 million outstanding under a $300 million senior
secured revolving credit facility (the "Revolving Credit Facility")
plus are 35 letters of credit (each an "LOC") outstanding as of May
26, 2017 in the aggregate principle amount of $117.3 million, as
well as merchandise LOCs outstanding in the aggregate principal
amount of approximately US$14.3 million, under a Credit Agreement
dated Sept. 10, 2010, (Wells Fargo Credit Agreement") with Wells
Fargo Capital Finance Corporation Canada as Administrative Agent
and Co-Collateral Agent together with a number of other lenders
(the "Revolving Facility Lenders").

   * a term loan of US$93.9 million (CA$125 million) outstanding
under a Credit Agreement dated March 20, 2017 (the "GACP Credit
Agreement") with GACP Finance Co., LLC ("GACP") as Administrative
Agent and Syndication Agent and the lenders currently participating
in the syndicate (the "Term Loan Lenders").

                       Continuing Losses

The Sears Canada Group has experienced declining sales and
significant losses, with net losses beginning in 2014.107

Mr. Wong said that factors contributing to this decline in
financial performance include (i) a general weakening of the
traditional Canadian retail industry; (ii) unsustainable fixed
costs from an overly-broad footprint; (iii) the decline of the
catalogue business; (iv) lower than expected conversion of
catalogue customers to online customers; (v) the inability to
secure an agreement with a financial institution for the management
of the Sears Canada Group's credit and financial services
operations; and (vi) the weakening of the Canadian dollar.

As a result of the Sears Canada Group's poor financial performance
and considerable negative press, vendors supplying inventory to
Sears Canada have increasingly been imposing reduced terms on the
company. This has further exacerbated liquidity issues.

Additionally, according to Mr. Wong, the Sears Canada Group faces
certain challenges with respect to its pension and post-retirement
benefit obligations. While the Sears Canada Group is up-to-date
with the current required contributions to the Sears Pension Plan,
the DB Component of the Sears Pension Plan has a large funding
deficit when calculated on a wind-up basis and the yearly special
payments place a significant strain on the liquidity available to
conduct ongoing operations.  The funding deficit has become a
significant risk and impediment to the Sears Canada Group's ongoing
business.

The Sears Canada Group has taken a number of steps to re-engineer
its business for long-term growth, including leveraging technology
to transform from a bricks-and-mortar retail platform to an
e-commerce retailer with supporting stores.  To this end, Sears
Canada launched Initium Commerce Lab, an innovation hub, to design
and implement a modernized technology platform for Sears Canada.
Sears Canada has also reduced square footage and changed store
product mix, launched a new off-price retail business called "The
Cut", closed certain underperforming stores, improved logistics,
and consolidated distribution operations and reduced costs.

The Sears Canada Group has been funding these initiatives through
monetization of real estate assets, sale of joint venture
interests, and, the Initial Term Loan under the GACP Credit
Agreement that was advanced on March 20, 2017.  It has become
apparent that the second tranche of the Term Loans -- the Delay
Draw Term Loan -- of up to the U.S. dollar equivalent of CA$175
million cannot be funded in a timely manner or at all. The Term
Loan Lenders recently communicated to Sears Canada that they are
only willing to lend an amount up to $109.1 million under the Delay
Draw Term Loan, which is significantly less than the $175 million
originally expected.  Ultimately, Sears Canada concluded
that it was not prudent to encumber its remaining real estate
assets for borrowings of only $109.1 million.

The inability to access the Delay Draw Term Loan has resulted in
increased strain on Sears Canada's liquidity.  In addition, Sears
Canada's management recently noted that there was significant doubt
as to the company's ability to continue as a going concern in its
consolidated quarter-end financial statements filed on June 13,
2017.  Management also noted that Sears Canada's ability to
continue to satisfy its obligations as they became due and
implement its business plan in the ordinary course was uncertain
due to Sears Canada's inability to borrow the full amount of the
second tranche of funding and the lack of timely, available
alternative sources of liquidity.  The Applicants cannot complete
the implementation of their operational restructuring without
additional liquidity and the stability created by a stay of
proceedings under the CCAA.

                         Investor Matters

As a result of the CCAA filing, the TSX and NASDAQ have suspended
trading of the common shares of the Company and the TSX has
initiated an expedited delisting review.  There can be no certainty
as to timing or likelihood that the common shares will recommence
trading on the TSX, NASDAQ or any other exchange or market.

Mr. Shahir Guindi, a Director of the Corporation, has resigned his
post due to time constraints in his schedule.

Sears Canada is required pursuant to section 133(1)(b) of the CBCA
to call and, pursuant to the rules of the Toronto Stock Exchange,
to hold an annual meeting of its shareholders by no later than July
28, 2017.  

On June 13, 2017, Sears Canada postponed the annual meeting
scheduled for June 14, 2017, to a date to be determined.  holding
the annual meeting of shareholders during the CCAA proceedings
would divert the attention of senior management away from the
restructuring.  Accordingly, Sears Canada has asked the Ontario
Court to relieve it of any obligation to call and hold an annual
meeting of shareholders or to appoint an additional director
pending any further order of the Court.

SEARS CANADA: To Close 59 Stores, Fire 2,900 Employees
------------------------------------------------------
On the day that it applied before the Ontario Superior Court of
Justice (Commercial List) for protection under the Companies'
Creditors Arrangement Act ("CCAA"), Sears Canada Inc. (TSX: SCC;
NASDAQ: SRSC) announced the closing of 20 full-line locations, plus
15 "Sears Home" Stores, 10 "Sears Outlet" and 14 "Sears Hometown"
locations.

The specific timing of the store closings has not yet been
finalized.

Billy Wong, Executive Vice-President and Chief Financial Officer of
Sears Canada, said in an affidavit submitted to the Ontario Court
that after the store closures are complete, it is anticipated that
the Sears Canada Group will have 75 full-line department stores
(including one pop-up shop), 8 Sears Home stores, 49 Hometown
stores, 32 Corbeil stores, and 0 Outlet stores.

Sears Canada also announced that the closures will result in a
reduction in its workforce of approximately 2,900 positions across
its retail network and at its corporate head office in Toronto.

"The Sears Canada Group intends to eliminate approximately 500
non-store level positions immediately upon filing.  Additional
headcount reductions in the amount of approximately 2,400 will
result from store closures.  At this time, it is expected that some
or all of these store level employees will be provided with working
notice of termination.  Further, it is anticipated that adjustments
to compensation arrangements for certain store level employees will
be made during the CCAA proceedings," Mr. Wong said.

All other Sears Canada stores and the Sears e-commerce Web site
http://www.sears.ca/continue to be open for business.

SII LIQUIDATION: Court Denies Hahn's Request for Status Conference
------------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Russ Kendig of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern
District of Ohio, Eastern Division, denied the motion of Hahn
Loeser & Parks LLP, Lawrence E. Oscar, and Andrew Krause for a
telephonic status conference.

On May 30, 2017, the Bankruptcy Court entered an order granting the
Defendants' motion for sanctions but it did not determine the
amount of monetary sanctions.  The Defendants were provided until
June 26, 2017, to file an itemization of the fees and expenses
incurred.  Plaintiff Schwab Industries, Inc., now known as SII
Liquidation Co., was provided until July 21, 2017, to object.

On June 14, 2017, the Plaintiff filed a Second Amended Notice of
Appeal to the District Court for the Northern District of Ohio
appealing the Bankruptcy Court's order granting sanctions for the
Defendants.  On June 16, 2017, the Defendants filed a motion for
telephonic status conference.

Presently, the Plaintiff's pending appeal divests the Bankruptcy
Court of jurisdiction.  The only remaining issue in this adversary
proceeding is a determination of the monetary amount of the
sanctions.  The Bankruptcy Court's determination regarding the
amount of sanctions is related to the pending appeal of its order
granting the Defendants' motion for sanctions.  Until the District
Court rules on the pending appeal, Bankruptcy Court lacks
jurisdiction to rule on any motions related to granting of
sanctions, the Bankruptcy Court held.

The Plaintiff's appeal to the District Court divests the Bankruptcy
Court of jurisdiction on the remaining matters during the pendency
of the appeal.  Accordingly, the Defendants' motion for a
telephonic status conference is denied.  The deadlines for
submitting an itemization of fees and expenses are stayed pending
the outcome of the Plaintiff's appeal.

The adversary proceeding is SCHWAB INDUSTRIES, INC., Plaintiff, v.
HUNTINGTON NATIONAL BANK, et al., Defendants, Adv. No. 14-6024,
(N.D. Ohio).

SKYLINE CORP: Three Long-Time Directors Will Retire
---------------------------------------------------
Skyline Corporation announced that three long-time members of the
Company's Board of Directors, Jerry Hammes, William H. Lawson, and
David T. Link, each have notified the Company of their respective
intent to retire from the Board.  Messrs. Hammes and Link will not
stand for reelection to the Board at the Company's upcoming 2017
Annual Meeting of Shareholders.  Mr. Lawson will retire as of
July 24, 2017.  The Company said their decisions to retire and not
stand for reelection to the Board are not a result of any
disagreement with the Company on any matter relating to the
Company's operations, policies, or practices.

Mr. Hammes, age 85, has served on the Board since 1986, Mr. Lawson,
age 80, has served on the Board since 1973, and Mr. Link, age 80,
has served on the Board since 1994.  Each of the directors
currently serves as a member of the Board's Audit, Nominating and
Corporate Governance, and Compensation Committees.

"On behalf of the Board of Directors and the Company, we thank
Jerry, Bill, and Dave for their long and distinguished service on
the Board and their dedication to Skyline, its shareholders,
employees, and stakeholders, and the Northern Indiana community. We
salute their tireless service to all of Skyline's constituents over
their combined 98 years of service on the Board.  Jerry, Bill and
Dave have exemplified Skyline’s commitment to integrity in all
they have done," said John C. Firth, the Chairman of the Board of
Skyline.  "The Company deeply appreciates the significant
contributions Jerry, Bill, and Dave have made to the Company, and
we wish them well in their future endeavors."

The Board intends to nominate candidates for election to the Board
at the upcoming 2017 Annual Meeting of Shareholders to fill the
positions resulting from the retirements of Messrs. Hammes, Lawson,

Mr. Lawson.

SM ENERGY: S&P Affirms 'BB-' CCR & Revises Outlook to Stable
------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings affirmed its 'BB-' corporate credit rating on
Denver-based exploration and production (E&P) company SM Energy Co.
and revised the outlook to stable from negative.

At the same time, S&P affirmed the 'B+' issue-level rating on the
company's senior unsecured debt, with a recovery rating of '5',
indicating S&P's expectation of modest (10% to 30%: rounded
estimate: 15%) recovery to creditors in the event of a payment
default.

The stable outlook reflects S&P's expectation that SM will maintain
improved financial measures, including FFO/debt of 15% to 20%
through 2018, while continuing to aggressively develop its Midland
Basin assets.  Although S&P expects significant negative free cash
flow during this period, good production growth and higher returns
from the Midland Basin should help to buffer increased debt levels.
Finally, S&P expects the company to maintain adequate liquidity,
including if needed, moderating spending levels if WTI prices
materially retreat from S&P's base case assumptions.

S&P could lower the rating if it expected FFO/debt to be sustained
below 12%, most likely to occur under WTI price assumptions around
$40/bbl without a compensating reduction in capital spending.  S&P
could also lower ratings if SM sold further reserves without a
near-term plan to replace them, resulting in a scale of operations
inconsistent for the 'BB-' peer group.  Finally, S&P could also
lower the rating if the company were unable to maintain its proved
developed reserve life near current levels.

Given SM's limited scale of operations relative to the 'BB-'
category, a significant improvement in financial performance is
needed before S&P could consider an upgrade.  S&P could raise the
rating if SM is able to continue improving its financial profile
such that we expect FFO/debt to be sustained above 30%.  This could
occur if SM can successfully develop its Midland Basin assets,
resulting in significant production and cash flow growth, while
limiting the impact of negative free cash flow on debt levels.

SPI ENERGY: Seeking to List Ordinary Shares on Nasdaq
-----------------------------------------------------
SPI Energy Co., Ltd., disclosed that it has had discussions with
The Nasdaq Stock Market seeking to list the ordinary shares of the
Company, par value US$0.000001 each, for trading on The Nasdaq
Global Select Market in substitution for its American depositary
shares, each representing ten Ordinary Shares.

As previously disclosed, The Bank of New York Mellon, the
depositary bank for the Company's American depositary shares
facility, announced on March 17, 2017, that it would terminate the
American depositary receipts facility of the Company at 5:00 PM
(Eastern Time) on June 19, 2017.  The Company expects that, upon
the effectiveness of the Substitution Listing, its ADSs will cease
to be listed on Nasdaq while the Ordinary Shares represented by the
ADSs will trade on Nasdaq under the symbol of "SPI."  The Company
has appointed Computershare as the transfer agent for its Ordinary
Shares in the United States.  However, there remains uncertainty
regarding whether the Company will be able to obtain clearance from
Nasdaq to effectuate the Substitution Listing prior to the
Termination Date.  Subsequent to the Termination Date, Nasdaq may
suspend the trading of the Company's ADSs until such time as the
Substitution Listing shall have taken effect or as otherwise
determined by the staff of Nasdaq.

Owners and holders of the Company's ADSs may surrender their ADSs
to the Depositary for delivery of the underlying Ordinary Shares.
To surrender the ADRs, the address of the Depositary is: The Bank
of New York Mellon, 101 Barclay Street, Depositary Receipts
Division -- 22nd Floor, Attention: Cancellation Desk, New York, NY
10286.  Registered or overnight mail is the suggested method of
delivering ADRs to the Depositary.  For further information
regarding the ADRs, please contact the Depositary at 1-888-269-2377
for US callers or 1-201-680-6825 for non-US callers.  Subsequent to
the Termination Date, under the terms of the deposit agreement
among the Company, the Depositary and owners and holders of the
American deposit receipts of the Company, the Depositary may
attempt to sell the underlying shares.  If the Depositary has sold
such underlying shares or received value for such shares, holders
must surrender the American depositary shares to obtain payment of
the sale proceeds, net of expenses and applicable tax and charges.

KPMG Huazhen LLP, in Shanghai, China, issued a "going concern"
qualification on the consolidated financial statements for the
year ended Dec. 31, 2015, citing that SPI Energy Co., Ltd., and
its subsidiaries have suffered significant losses from operations
and have a negative working capital as of Dec. 31, 2015.  In
addition, the Group has substantial amounts of debts that will
become due for repayment in 2016.  The auditors said these
factors raise substantial doubt about the Group's ability to
continue as a going concern.

L.P., and D. E. Shaw Composite Holdings, L.L.C., pursuant to Rule
2004 of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure. The proposed
examination relates to a certain sale agreement between the parties
and related non-bankruptcy litigation brought by Shaw against TERP
IN New York state court. Shaw opposed the Rule 2004 motion.

Judge Stuart M. Bernstein of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York denied
TERP's motion from the bench and reserved decision on the Debtors'
motion to conduct a Rule 2004 examination.

SunEdison, Inc. and non-debtor TERP are affiliated entities, and
SUNE's most valuable assets are its interests in TERP. On Nov. 17,
2014, SUNE, TERP and Shaw, among others, entered into a Purchase
and Sale Agreement pursuant to which SUNE agreed to pay
approximately $1 billion in cash and debt in exchange for an energy
development platform, a project pipeline, and energy projects in
various stages of development.

SUNE also agreed to pay up to $510 million in incremental
conditional cash payments based upon the completion and operability
of the purchased energy projects by certain deadlines. If, however,
an "Acceleration Event" occurred, a term that included SUNE’s
bankruptcy, (PSA at section 1.01), any unpaid Earnout Project
Payments would become immediately due and owing from the "Buyers."

The definition of "Buyers" is the main source of the dispute
between Shaw and TERP. The PSA defined the term "Buyers" to include
both SUNE and TerraForm LLC.

On April 3, 2016, Shaw commenced an action against TERP in the New
York Supreme Court, Commercial Division seeking a declaratory
judgment regarding TERP’s obligations under the PSA.

On March 30, 2017, the Debtors and TERP jointly filed the instant
Motion with this Court. The Debtors and TERP contend that they need
the Rule 2004 discovery because an adverse outcome in the State
Court Action will reduce the value of SUNE's stake in TERP.

The Court denied TERP's request for Rule 2004 discovery from the
bench based on the "pending proceeding" rule. Under the rule, "once
an adversary proceeding or contested matter is commenced, discovery
should be pursued under the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and
not by Rule 2004," and the principle applies to pending state court
litigation.

The State Court Action is a pending proceeding within the meaning
of the rule. TERP can seek discovery relating to the meaning of
"Buyer" or the merits of the action pursuant to the NYCPLR.

Shaw also argues that the Debtors are barred from taking Rule 2004
discovery under the pending proceeding rule.  The Debtors are not
parties to the State Court Action, and hence, the rule does not
apply to them. The Debtors are entitled to Rule 2004 discovery from
Shaw if they can establish cause. They argue that cause exists
because the outcome of the State Court Action will have a material
effect on the value of an important asset, the TERP shares.
Relevance, however, is not enough; the Debtors must show that they
need the discovery for some appropriate purpose, or that the
failure to get the discovery will result in hardship or injustice.
This they have not done.

The Debtors request to use Rule 2004 to estimate the contingent
future value of a subsidiary's stock based on the outcome of
pending litigation also lacks any limiting principle.

In addition, although the Debtors also suggest that they need
discovery from Shaw to evaluate its claims against the various
estates, the Debtors have not disputed their liability or focused a
single request on the computation of Shaw's claims against the
estates. In fact, SUNE is committed to pay $231 million to Shaw
under the Payment Agreement. In short, they have failed to show any
necessity for the Rule 2004 discovery, or that they will suffer
injustice or hardship if they do not get it.

Thus, the Motion is denied.

SUNEDISON INC: Transition Agreement With Terraform Power Approved
-----------------------------------------------------------------
BankruptcyData.com reported that the U.S. Bankruptcy Court approved
SunEdison's motion for an order authorizing and approving the
Company's entry into a transition services agreement with Terraform
Power, regarding transition of a portion of the Terraform Power,
regarding the transition of a portion of the Global Asset
Management North American business unit (GAM Business). As
previously reported, "A significant portion of the GAM Business
volume (approximately 60%) is attributable to services provided to
affiliates of TerraForm Power ('TERP') and TerraForm Global
('GLBL,' and together with TERP, the 'YieldCos'). . . .  Because
the services provided to the YieldCos comprised such a large
portion of the GAM Business volume, the value of the GAM Business
was limited by the YieldCos' decision to terminate their
relationship with the GAM Business. In light of this, ultimately,
in February 2017, the one party still pursuing purchasing the GAM
Business ceased negotiations . . . .  After considering its
alternatives, the Debtors determined that immediate rejection of
the Management Services Agreements and the TERP Contracts would
have a detrimental effect on TERP -- one of the Company's most
valuable assets -- because TERP affiliated Service Recipients rely
on the GAM Business for monitoring, reporting, and management and
operation of their facilities, including compliance with certain
regulatory requirements and the terms of certain credit facilities
. . . . The Debtors and TERP have engaged in good faith
negotiations to reach an agreement that preserves the value of
TERP, preserves the jobs of up to 138 employees -- 73 of which were
previously transferred to TERP and 65 employees that have been
identified as potential hires, and relieves the Debtors of the
obligations and costs associated with providing GAM Business
services to TERP."

THERON WHITING: Trustee Selling Payson Property to Big Dog for $25K
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Elizabeth R. Loveridge, Chapter 11 Trustee for Theron Daniel and
Susie Grace Whiting, asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Utah to authorize the sale of real property located at
938 West Utah Avenue, Payson, Utah, to Big Dog Management, LLC for
$25,000, subject to overbid.

In December 2003, the Debtors signed a Real Estate Purchase
Contract for the sale of the Property.  Shortly after the Debtors
signed the Contract, Duane Gillman was appointed Trustee of the
Bankruptcy Estate.  Gillman moved for an order approving the sale
agreed to by the Debtors.  On Jan. 22, 2004, the Court authorized
the Trustee to sell the Property.  The legal description in the
Trustee's Deed that Gillman signed at the closing of the sale did
not include a strip of property adjacent to the parcel sold
("Contested Parcel").  The Bankruptcy Case was closed on April 12,
2006.

On June 23, 2015, Gillman filed a Motion to Reopen the Case and
Appoint a Trustee.  The Motion was granted by the Court on July 31,
2015.  Loveridge was appointed as Chapter 11 Trustee on Aug. 3,
2015.  On May 31, 2016, Debtor Susie Whiting, filed a Motion for
Court to Determine that Trustee Gillman Abandoned Certain Property
of the Estate Back to Debtors.  On June 16, 2016, Loveridge filed
an Objection to the Debtor's Motion, and on Dec. 1, 2016, the Court
entered an Order Denying the Debtor's Motion to Close the Case and
Denying the Motion to Determine that Trustee Gillman Abandoned
Certain Property of the Estate Back to the Debtor.

The Contested Parcel of property remains property of the Bankruptcy
Estate, and the Trustee now desires to sell the Contested Parcel to
the Buyer.

The Trustee and the Buyer have signed a Sale Agreement for the sale
of the Property for $25,000.  The parties' obligations under the
Settlement Agreement were conditioned upon the Court entering a
final order approving the Sale Agreement.  The sale is subject to
higher and better offers and is subject to approval by the Court.
The Debtors and/or their successors, assigns, or transferees have
no interest in the Subject Property.

The salient terms of the Sale Agreement are:

    a. Purchased Property:  938 West Utah Avenue, Payson, Utah

    b. Purchase Price: $25,000

    c. Buyer: Big Dog Management, LLC

    d. Seller: Elizabeth R. Loveridge, Trustee for the Debtors

    e. Terms: Free and clear of liens and interests

    f. The Buyer will pay all recording fees, escrow fees and
settlement charges.

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

     http://bankrupt.com/misc/Theron_Whiting__930_Sales.pdf

It is the Trustee's business judgment that selling the Property for
$25,000 is in the best interest of the Bankruptcy Estate because
the purchase price recovers the full value of the Estate's interest
in the Property.

The Purchaser can be reached at:

          BIG DOG MANAGEMENT, LLC
          39 W. Olympic Lane
          Elk Ridge, UT 84651

protection (Bankr. D. Utah Case No. 03-27493) on April 29, 2003.
Duane Gillman was appointed Chapter 11 Trustee of the Bankruptcy
Estate.  The Bankruptcy Case was closed on April 12, 2006.  On July

case.  Elizabeth R. Loveridge was appointed as the new Chapter 11
Trustee on Aug. 3, 2015.

TIDEWATER INC: Equity Ad Hoc Committee Seeks Plan Hrg. Adjournment
------------------------------------------------------------------
BankruptcyData.com reported that Tidewater Inc.'s ad hoc committee
of equity security holders filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court a
motion for adjournment of the joint Disclosure Statement and Plan
hearing. The motion explains, "The exigencies of the circumstances
warranting expedited consideration of the Request for Adjournment
are self-evident. As detailed in the Request for Adjournment, the
United States Trustee has conclude that an Official Equity
Committee is needed in these cases to look out for the interests of
the Debtors' common shareholders and the Non-Consenting Lenders
have made clear their intent to challenge the treatment provided
for shareholders in the Plan. At best, and absent an adjournment,
the Official Equity Committee will be formed and functioning with
only six days to prepare for the Plan Hearing. The only way the
Official Equity Committee can effectively perform its statutory
duties and be prepared to meaningfully participate in the Plan
process is if the Plan Hearing is adjourned. Absent expedited
consideration of the Request for Adjournment, the Official Equity
Committee will essentially be denied an opportunity to effectively
champion shareholder interests . . . . As detailed in the Request
for Adjournment, there is no harm to the Debtors or any other party
by the Court granting a reasonable adjournment of the Plan Hearing.
The Debtors have over $700 million in cash. There is no DIP
financing or use of cash collateral. This is not a 363 sale case.
There is no risk that adjournment will cause the Debtors financial
difficulty or risk the Debtors' ongoing operations."

As previously reported by The Troubled Company Reporter, the
Debtors will return to the Bankruptcy on June 28 for a hearing to
consider confirmation of their Joint Prepackaged Chapter 11 Plan of
Reorganization.

TRIBUNE MEDIA: Order Sustaining Objection to Claim No. 3333 Upheld
------------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware affirmed the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware's order
sustaining Tribune Media Company's objection to Claim No. 3333.

Keith Younge appeals from the March 18, 2016, Order and Memorandum
Opinion of the Bankruptcy Court.

The core of Younge's claim is that, due to an altercation with a
coworker at WPHL-TV, he was subjected to a hostile work environment
and unlawfully terminated because of his race. Younge was assigned
to train with Rick Schultz, an engineering technician hired by the
station on June 7, 1972. Schultz's personnel file indicated that he
had been in two prior altercations with co-workers.

Younge alleges that he was discriminated against, subjected to a
hostile work environment, and ultimately terminated because of his
race. Younge asserts identical claims under both Title VII and the
Pennsylvania Human Relations Act. The Court finds that the
Bankruptcy Court considered each of Younge's claims under the
proper legal standards and correctly concluded that Younge's claim
failed as a matter of law.

The District Court held that the Bankruptcy Court correctly applied
the five-part test set forth in Mandel v. M & Q Packaging Corp,
706 F.3d 157 (3d Cir. 2013), in analyzing the sufficiency of
Younge's evidence and the validity of his claim. To succeed on his
hostile work environment claim, Younge had to establish: (1) that
he suffered intentional discrimination because of his race; (2)
"the discrimination was severe or pervasive"; (3) the
discrimination "detrimentally affected" him; (4) "the
discrimination would detrimentally affect a reasonable person in
like circumstances; and (5) "the existence of respondeat superior
liability." The Bankruptcy Court concluded that the facts--when
viewed in the light most favorable to Younge--failed to demonstrate
respondeat superior liability.

As the Bankruptcy Court summarized, there was only one incident in
Schultz's file mentioning racial bias. While indubitably
troubling, the allegations were disputed and they occurred 15 years
prior to the altercation with Yonge. Besides that one reference in
the personnel file, Yonge offers no evidence that the
non-specific problems mentioned by the station's manager and
supervisor referred to prior racist conduct. The record also lacks
evidence supporting an inference that management-level personnel
were generally aware of Shultz's alleged racial bias.

At best, Younge's evidence seems to suggest that the Station had
heard of or known of prior altercations that involved Schultz.
Further, once the Station did become aware of assertions that
Schultz had overtly exhibited racial animus, they investigated the
matter and promptly fired him just as the law requires. For those
reasons, the court must agree with the Bankruptcy Court's findings
and reasoning regarding Younge’s hostile work environment claim

Younge also alleges that the Bankruptcy Court erred in finding a
legitimate, non-discriminatory reason for Younge's termination. The
Bankruptcy Court found that Younge was terminated for violating the
Station's Anti-Harassment Policy and Standards of Conduct.
According to Younge, he should not have been terminated for
reacting as any normal person would when confronted with
humiliating, racially motivated conduct. He argues that violation
of the Station's Policy was a pretext, and that his employment was
terminated due to his race. The court finds that the Bankruptcy
Court correctly concluded that Younge failed to rebut the
Station’s legitimate, non-discriminatory reasons for terminating
him.

Younge offers no evidence that makes the Station's reasons for
firing him unbelievable. To the contrary, the undisputed facts in
the record--Younge yelled and cursed at Schultz--bolster the
Station's rationale because its policies clearly prohibit fighting
and verbal abuse. Likely realizing that the undisputed facts create
at least a plausible reason for his termination, Younge focuses the
larger part of his pretext argument on his claim that he received
harsher treatment than others in his position, namely, Schultz.

Younge also states that Schultz was not held to the same "zero
tolerance" policy for his prior indiscretions at the Station.
Schultz had two other incidents on his record before his
altercation with Younge, yet he remained employed at the Station;
Younge, on the other hand, was fired after his first offense.
Such evidence, however, does not permit the inference that
discrimination was the motivating cause of Younge’s termination.
As the Bankruptcy Court noted, Younge did not provide sufficient
evidence from which a factfinder could conclude that Shultz's prior
altercation was of comparable seriousness to the one that caused
his termination. Though Schultz's personnel file indicates that
profanity was used in one of the prior altercations, there is no
evidence that the prior incident was as disruptive as the one at
issue here.

Because Younge has not pointed to evidence sufficient to create a
factual dispute over the Station's legitimate, non-discriminatory
reason for termination, Younge's claim for unlawful termination
fails as a matter of law.

UMATRIN HOLDING: Amends 2016 Form 10-K Due to Classification Error
------------------------------------------------------------------
Umatrin Holding Limited filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission an amended annual report on Form 10-K/A for the fiscal
year ended Dec. 31, 2016, to restate its audited financial
statements for the said period and to include the Consolidated
Statements of Comprehensive Loss that was inadvertently omitted
from the Original Filing.  The Company incorrectly presented the
Term loan payable-current portion and the Term loan payable-long
term amounts.  The purpose of the Form 10-K/A is to reclassify the
amounts from Term loan payable-current portion to Term loan
payable-long term.
  
On May 17, 2017, Umatrin was notified by its independent registered
public accounting firm, WWC, P.C. of errors in Company's audited
financial statements for the fiscal year ended Dec. 31, 2016, as
filed with the SEC on April 17, 2017.  On June 12, 2017, upon
review of the Original Filing and accounting files and based on the
recommendation from WWC, Company's management concluded that the
following previously issued financial statements should no longer
be relied upon and will be restated.  

The restatements of the financial statements resulted from the
incorrect classification of the term loan payable-current portion
and term loan payable-long term.  In addition, Company's management
identified an omission of the Consolidated Statements of
Comprehensive Loss in the Original Filing due to clerical error.
The adjustments made to the restated financial statements did not
have an impact to earnings before taxes, net income, total cash
flow, total assets, total liabilities, retained earnings or total
shareholder equity and therefore the Company believes that the
restatements do not have a positive or negative effect on the
operations of the business.  The effects of the restatements are
also not expected to affect the Company's cash flows.  After
reviewing the circumstances leading up to the restatement, Company
and WWC believe that the errors were inadvertent and
unintentional.

VERTEX ENERGY: CEO's Base Salary Hiked to $335,000
--------------------------------------------------
The Compensation Committee of the Board of Directors of Vertex
Energy, Inc. approved an increase in total base salary for fiscal
2016 (retroactive to Jan. 1, 2016) and 2017 and targeted bonus
compensation for fiscal 2017, for:

   * Benjamin P. Cowart, the Company's chief executive officer and
     president (Mr. Cowart's total base salary increased to
     $335,000 for fiscal 2016 and 2017 (with accrued amounts
     subject to the Quarterly Payment Requirements) and Mr.
     Cowart's 2017 targeted bonus increased to $200,000); and

   * Chris Carlson, the Company's chief financial officer and
     secretary (Mr. Carlson's total base salary increased to
     $218,500 for fiscal 2016 and 2017 (with accrued amounts
     subject to the Quarterly Payment Requirements) and Mr.
     Carlson's 2017 targeted bonus increased to $123,500).

The Compensation Committee also approved an increase in total base
salary for fiscal 2017 to up to $247,500 for John Strickland, the
Company's chief operating officer, subject to Mr. Strickland
meeting certain requirements set forth by the Compensation
Committee, which increase in salary will go into effect
automatically upon Mr. Strickland meeting those requirements.  The
Compensation Committee also approved targeted bonus compensation
for fiscal 2017 for Mr. Strickland of $153,450.

The increase in base salary for Mr. Cowart and Mr. Carlson,
effective Jan. 1, 2016, the total amount of 2016 and 2017 increased
base salary, from Jan. 1, 2016, to June 9, 2017, for Mr. Cowart and
Mr. Carlson, and 2016 bonuses for each of the officers, as
applicable, will be deemed accrued as of June 9, 2017, and payable
at the rate of up to one-third of such amounts, beginning at the
end of the second quarter of fiscal 2017 and continuing thereafter
in future quarters, provided that if the Company does not maintain
a current ratio of assets to debt of 1.0 after those payments or is
not in compliance with all of its debt covenants, the accrued
amounts will not be paid in an amount which would cause the Company
to violate the Payment Conditions, and any amount not paid will
accrue until the following quarter, provided that not more than an
aggregate of $140,597 of such accrued amounts will be paid each
quarter.

                   Disclosure of Bonus


As disclosed under the Summary Executive Compensation Table in the
Company's Definitive Schedule 14A Proxy Statement filed with the
SEC on, and first sent to stockholders on, April 27, 2017, the
"Proxy", the bonuses of Benjamin P. Cowart, the Company's chief
executive officer and president, and Chris Carlson, its chief
financial officer and secretary, for the fiscal years ended 2016,
2015 and 2014, and the bonus of John Strickland, its chief
operating officer, for the fiscal year ended 2016, could not be
calculated as of the date of the filing of the Proxy, as such
bonuses had not yet been determined by the Compensation Committee.

Subsequently on June 9, 2017, the Compensation Committee approved
the bonuses of Mr. Cowart ($165,000), Mr. Carlson ($60,000) and Mr.
Strickland ($63,000), for fiscal 2016, the payment of each of which
is subject to the Quarterly Payment Requirements described above.
The Compensation Committee also determined that Mr. Cowart and Mr.
Carlson would not receive any bonus for fiscal 2015 or fiscal 2014,
based upon the Company's liquidity and results of operations for
the years ended Dec. 31, 2015 and 2014.

VIASAT INC: S&P Raises CCR to 'BB-'; Outlook Stable
---------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings raised its corporate credit rating on Carlsbad,
Calif.-based ViaSat Inc. to 'BB-' from 'B+'.  The outlook is
stable.

At the same time, S&P raised its issue-level rating on the
company's senior unsecured notes to 'BB-' from 'B+'.  The recovery
rating remains '4', indicating S&P's expectation for average
(30%-50%; rounded estimate: 40%) recovery for lenders in the event
of a payment default.

The upgrade reflects the company's continued strong revenue and
EBITDA growth, steady progress toward its long-term strategy, and
increased visibility into capital investment plans.  In fiscal 2017
(ended March 31, 2017), revenue and EBITDA improved 10% and 13%
(excluding investments in ViaSat-3), respectively, driven by solid
performance in the company's satellite and government segments.  At
the same time, the company launched ViaSat-2, finalized its joint
venture with Eutelsat, and began construction on the ViaSat-3
constellation.  These initiatives improve S&P's view of the
business as they will expand ViaSat's product offerings and scale.
In addition, the company has provided guidance that the ViaSat-3
(Americas) and ViaSat-3 (EMEA) satellites will cost between $1.2
billion and $1.4 billion, which provides a degree of visibility
into the company's funding requirements and increases S&P's
confidence that the company will maintain leverage comfortably
below 4.5x over the next several years.

The stable outlook reflects S&P's expectation that leverage will be
around 4x over the next year due to relatively flat EBITDA as a
result of investments in ViaSat-3 and subdued service revenue
growth from capacity constraints.

While unlikely over the next 12 months, S&P could lower the rating
if operating performance weakens due to competitive pressures in
the satellite services segment, leading to elevated churn and
pricing pressure that cause margin compression and a sustained
increase in leverage above 4.5x. Alternatively, we could lower the
rating if the company increases leverage above 4.5x on a
sustained basis to fund additional satellite builds and launches.

While unlikely, S&P could raise the rating if leverage improves
below 3.5x on a sustained basis with positive FOCF, including plans
for additional satellite builds and launches.  An upgrade would
also require sustained margins across its satellite and government
services segments.


W3 TOPCO: S&P Raises CCR to 'B-' on New Capital Structure
---------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings raised its corporate credit rating on
Houston-based safety services and equipment company W3 Topco LLC to
'B-' from 'D'.

At the same time, S&P assigned 'B-' issue-level ratings to the
company's $60 million secured revolver maturing in 2022 and its
$175 million secured term loan due 2022.  S&P assigned a '3'
recovery rating to both issues, indicating its expectation of
meaningful (50% to 70%; rounded estimate: 55%) recovery in the
event of a payment default.

"The upgrade reflects W3 Topco's new capital structure and our
revised estimates of the company's 2017 and 2018 revenues and
EBITDA, following weaker-than-expected full year 2016, but
improving first-quarter 2017 results," said S&P Global Ratings
credit analyst Kevin Kwok.

In 2016, about 80% of the company's global revenue was related to
downstream operations, which was up from approximately 70% in 2015,
and up from 60% in 2014.  The downturn in oil and natural gas
prices since late 2014 has reduced demand from W3 Topco's upstream
business customers.  The company continues to focus its growth
strategy on the downstream segment primarily in the more volatile
refining and petrochemical markets while continuing to serve the
recovering upstream segment.  After two straight years of total
revenue decline--12% in 2015 and 11% in 2016-- S&P expects revenue
to improve by about 2% in 2017 due to newly signed and renewed
contracts of additional in-plant service centers (IPSCs) and
partial recovery of the upstream segment, but slightly offset by
delayed turnarounds by refiners.  As W3 Topco plans to build
additional IPSCs around the world in strategic geographical
locations to improve efficiency in service, combined with lower
debt levels, S&P believes the company's credit measures should
improve despite the still soft market conditions.

S&P could lower the rating if leverage increased to what it would
view as unsustainable levels, or if liquidity deteriorated.  This
scenario would most likely occur if the company's end markets
significantly weaken or if the company's capital spending was more
aggressive than S&P expected.

S&P does not expect to raise the rating over the next 12 months
given the company's small scale of operations, its aggressive
financial policy, and a balance sheet S&P views as highly
leveraged.  However, S&P would consider a stable outlook if the
company managed to significantly increase the size and scale of its
operations while improving margins.

[*] US High Yield Bond Default Rate Approaches 2%, Fitch Says
-------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. high yield bond default rate finished May at 2.3%, its
lowest level since June 2015, and is primed to drop further in
June, according to Fitch Ratings. Nevertheless, Fitch expects the
default rate to end the year at just below 3%.

Although both GenOn Energy Inc. and The Gymboree Corp. filed for
bankruptcy in mid-June, the total amount of high yield debt
defaulting in June is likely to be less than the $3.4 billion
amount leaving the trailing 12-month (TTM) universe.

"With the trailing 12-month high yield bond default rate likely
falling for the sixth straight month, there has also been
improvement in 30-day post-default prices," said Eric Rosenthal,
Senior Director of Leveraged Finance. "Since the start of the year,
the 30-day post-default price is at 68%, above the 47%
nonrecessionary average."

The TTM energy default rate fell to 7.9% at end-May, well below its
January peak of 19.7%. Fitch expects the rate will fall below 5% by
end-July and will settle around 2.5% by year-end.

While retail remains the sector to watch, the default rate is
highly dependent on defaults from two large issuers: Claire's
Stores and Sears. Fitch forecasts a 9% retail default rate by
year-end, including defaults from both. Without defaults from
Claire's and Sears, the rate will likely be closer to 4%.

iHeartCommunications also remains a name to watch, particularly
after extending its DDE deadline for the sixth time two weeks ago.
The company has a $90 million interest payment due on June 15th
followed by another payment scheduled for August. Fitch believes a
bankruptcy filing is likely and would add 0.8% to the overall
default rate if/when it occurs. The broadcasting and media default
rate would rise to almost 18% from IHeart's $9.5 billion of volume.

As the subtitle points out, the seven lectures reproduced in this
collection are meant especially for general readers with an
interest in medicine, including its history and the cultural
context it works within. James Miller, president of the New York
Academy of Medicine which sponsored the lectures, states in his
brief "Introduction" that this leading medical organization "has
long recognized as an obligation the interpretation of the
progress of medical knowledge to the public." The lectures
collected here succeed admirably in fulfilling this obligation.

The authors are all doctors, most specialists in different areas
of medicine. Lewis Gregory Cole, whose lecture is "X-ray Within
the Memory of Man," is a consulting roentgenologist at New York's
Fifth Avenue Hospital. Harrison Stanford Martland is a professor
of forensic medicine at New York University College of Medicine.
Many readers will undoubtedly find his lecture titled "Dr. Watson
and Mr. Sherlock Holmes" the most engrossing one. Other doctor-
authors are more involved in academic areas of medicine and
teaching. Reginald Burbank is the chairman of the Section of
Historical and Cultural Medicine at the New York Academy of
Medicine. He lectured on "Medicine and the Progress of
Civilization." Raymond Pearl, whose selection is "The Search for
Longevity," is a professor of biology at Johns Hopkins University.

The authors' high professional standing and involvement in
specialized areas do not get in the way of their aim to speak to a
general audience. They are all skilled writers and effective
communicators. As the titles of some of the lectures noted in the
previous paragraph indicate, the seven selections of "Landmarks in
Medicine" focus on the human-interest side of medicine rather than
the scientific or technological. Even the two with titles which
seem to suggest concern with technical aspects of medicine show
when read to take up the human-interest nature of these topics.
"The Meaning of Medical Research", by Dr. Alfred E. Cohn of the
Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research, is not so much about
methods, techniques, and equipment of medical research, but is
mostly about the interinvolvement of medical research, the
perennial concern of individuals with keeping and recovering good
health, and social concerns and pressures of the day. "The meaning
of medical research must regard these various social and personal
aspects," Cohn writes. In this essay, the doctor does answer the
questions of what is studied in medical research and how it is
studied. And he answers the related question of who does the
research. But his discussion of these questions leads to the final
and most significant question "for what reason does the study take
place?" His answer is "to understand the mechanisms at play and to
be concerned with their alleviation and cure." By "mechanisms,"
Cohn means the natural--i. e., biological--causes of disease and
illness. The lay person may take it for granted that medical
research is always principally concerned with finding cures for
medical problems. But as Cohn goes into in part of his lecture,
competition for government grants or professional or public
notoriety, the lure of novel experimentation, or research mainly
to justify a university or government agency can, and often do,
distract medical researchers and their associates from what Cohn
specifies should be the constant purpose of medical research. Such
purpose gives medicine meaning to humankind.

The second lecture with a title sounding as if it might be about a
technical feature of medicine, "X-ray Within the Memory of Man,"
is a historical perspective on the beginnings of the use of x-ray
in medicine. Its author Lewis Cole was a pioneer in the
development of x-rays in the late 1800s and early1900s. He mostly
talks about the development of x-ray within his memory. In doing
so, he also covers the work of other pioneers, notably William
Konrad Roentgen and Thomas Edison. Roentgen was a "pure scientist"
who discovered x-rays almost by accident and at first resented the
application of his discovery to practical uses such as medical
diagnosis. Edison, the prodigious inventor who was interested only
in the practical application of scientific discoveries, and his
co-worker Clarence Dally enthusiastically investigated the
practical possibilities of the discoveries in the new field of
radiation. Dally became so committed to his work in this field
that he shortly developed an illness and died. At the time, no on
knew about the dangers of prolonged exposure to x-rays. But
sensing some connection between his co-worker's untimely death and
his work with x-rays, Edison stopped his own investigations.

Cole himself became involved in work with x-rays during his
internship at Roosevelt Hospital in New York City in 1898 and
1899. His contribution to this important field was in the area of
interpretation of what were at the time primitive x-rays and
diagnosis of ailments such as tuberculosis and kidney stones. Cole
writes in such a way that the reader feels she or he is right with
him in the steps he makes in improving the use of x-rays. He adds
drama and human interest to the origins of this important medical
technology. The lecture "Dr. Watson and Mr. Sherlock Holmes" uses
the popular mystery stories of Arthur Conan Doyle to explore the
role of medicine in solving crimes, particularly murder. In some
cases, medical tests are required to figure out if a crime was
even committed. This lecture in particular demonstrates the
fundamental role played by medicine in nearly all major areas of
society throughout history. The seven collected lectures have
broad appeal. All of them are informative and educational in an
engaging way. Each is on an always interesting topic taken up by a
professional in the field of medicine obviously skilled in
communicating to the general reader. The authors seem almost mind
readers in picking out the most fascinating aspects of their
subjects which will appeal to the lay readers who are their
intended audience. While meant mainly for lay persons, the
lectures will appeal as well to doctors, nurses, and other
professionals in the field of medicine for putting their work in a
broader social context and bringing more clearly to mind the
interests, as well as the stake, of the public in medicine.

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.
