14885 INWOOD: Hires Square Foot as Broker
-----------------------------------------
14885 Inwood Road, LLC seeks authorization from the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the Northern District of Texas to employ Square Foot,
Inc., as broker.

The Debtor owns shopping centers located at 14835 and 14885 Inwood
Road, Addison, Texas, which the Debtor leases to various
businesses.

The Debtor requires Square Foot to market the Properties for lease
under the terms of a proposed Exclusive Sale/Lease Listing
Agreement.

Square Foot is entitled to a commission of $3.00 per square foot or
4% of net rentals, whichever is greater, in the event of a lease
transaction if Square Foot is the sole acting broker in the
transaction.  Should Square Foot cooperate with another broker in a
lease transaction, the Debtor will pay a commission of $4.50 per
square foot or 6% of net rentals, whichever is greater.  If, during
the term of this Listing Agreement, the Debtor extends, renews,
expands, or modifies a lease with a tenant, the Debtor will pay
Square Foot an additional fee of 2% of all rents to be paid for the
term of the extension, renewal, expansion or modification, payable
immediately upon execution of the lease extension, renewal or
modification.

Richard Polishuk, vice president of Square Foot, Inc., assured the
Court that the firm is a "disinterested person" as the term is
defined in Section 101(14) of the Bankruptcy Code and does not
represent any interest adverse to the Debtor and its estates.

Square Foot may be reached at:

5 STAR INVESTMENT: Trustee Selling South Bend Property for $26K
---------------------------------------------------------------
Douglas R. Adelsperger, Trustee of 5 Star Investment Group, LLC,
and affiliates, asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern
District of Indiana to authorize the private sale of real estate
commonly known as 2179 Hollywood Place, South Bend, St. Joseph
County, Indiana, to Brandon Arizpe for $26,000.

Prior to the Petition Date, debtor 5 Star Investment Group V, LLC,
was the sole owner of the Real Estate.  The Real Estate is subject
to a tax lien for delinquent real estate taxes that have accrued
for 2014 through 2016 and real estate taxes that will accrue for
2017.

The Real Estate is also subject to these Investor Mortgages:

   a. A first priority mortgage in favor of 2003 Joint Revocable
Trust of Harvey Lengacher and Salome Lengacher dated May 3, 2011.
The Lengacher Trust Mortgage was recorded on May 12, 2011 in the
Office of the Recorder of St. Joseph County, Indiana, as Instrument
No. 1112634.

   b. A second priority mortgage in favor of Thomas Adamczyk dated
May 12, 2014.  The Adamczyk Mortgage was recorded on May 23, 2014
in the Office of the Recorder of St. Joseph County, Indiana, as
Instrument No. 1411669.

On July 31, 2017, pursuant to the sole efforts of the Tiffany
Group, the Trustee entered into the Purchase Agreement for the sale
of the Real Estate to the Purchaser for the total purchase price of
$26,000.

The Purchase Agreement provides for the sale of the Real Estate,
free and clear of all liens, encumbrances, claims and interests.
It also provides that any portion of the Tax Lien that represent
delinquent real estate taxes, including real estate taxes that have
accrued for 2014 through 2016, will be paid in full at closing. In
addition, the Purchase Agreement provides that any portion of the
Tax Lien that represents real estate taxes for 2017 will be
prorated as of the date immediately prior to the date of closing.


Further, it provides that any other special assessment liens,
utilities, water and sewer charges and any other charges
customarily prorated in similar transactions will be prorated as of
the date immediately prior to the date of closing.

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

        http://bankrupt.com/misc/5_Star_900_Sales.pdf

Although the Trustee is still in the process of liquidating the
assets of the Consolidated Bankruptcy Estate, it appears that the
assets will fall short of paying the plethora of claimants.
Unfortunately, under these circumstances, no distribution method
can possibly compensate all the investors/creditors fully for their
losses.  In order to ensure the fair and equitable treatment of all
investors/creditors in these bankruptcy cases, the Trustee proposes
to sell all real estate free and clear of investor mortgages, with
the liens to attach to the proceeds until further order of the
Court.

The Trustee anticipates that the resolution of how the funds should
be distributed will be raised in the future pursuant to either a
chapter 11 plan and/or separate actions.  At such time, all parties
can be heard on how the proceeds from the sale of the Real Estate
secured by the Investor Mortgages should be distributed.

The Trustee submits that the proposed sale pursuant to the Purchase
Agreement will accomplish a "sound business purpose" and will
result in the maximized value for the Real Estate.  The Trustee
believes, based on the advice of the Tiffany Group, that the
purchase price of $26,000 reflects the combined fair market value
of the Real Estate, and it therefore maximizes recovery.

Accordingly, the Trustee asks the Court to enter an Order
authorizing him, on behalf of the Consolidated Bankruptcy Estates,
to (i) sell the Real Estate to the Purchaser pursuant to the terms
and conditions of the Purchase Agreement free and clear of all
liens, encumbrances, claims and interests; (ii) disburse from the
sale proceeds, costs and expenses of the sale, including the
commission owed to Tiffany Group (approximately $1,300), second to
pay all real estate taxes and assessments outstanding and unpaid at
the time of the sale, including the Tax Lien, and third to pay the
prorated portions for any other special assessment liens,
utilities, water and sewer charges and any other charges
customarily prorated in similar transactions; and (iii) retain the
excess proceeds from the sale until further order of the Court.

The Trustee asks the Court to waive the requirements of Bankruptcy
Rule 6004(h) in order to allow the Trustee to timely and
expeditiously consummate the proposed sale.

97 2ND LLC: Case Summary & 20 Largest Unsecured Creditors
---------------------------------------------------------
Debtor: 97 2nd LLC
        9322 3rd Avenue, Ste 502
        Brooklyn, NY 11209-6802

Type of Business: 97 2nd LLC claims to be the rightful owner of
                  the real property located at 97 2nd Avenue,
                  New York, NY which is improved by a
                  residential apartment building occupied
                  by nine residential tenants and one commercial
                  tenant.  The Debtor said that in recent weeks,
                  the Property has been improperly commandeered by
                  entities controlled by one, Michael Shah,
                  necessitating the filing of the Chapter 11 case.
                  More particularly, Mr. Shah's involvement began
                  when his company, DS 97 2nd Avenue Note
                  Purchaser LLC, initially acquired the underlying
                  mortgage debt originally held by Signature Bank
                  in the total amount of $9,500,000 earlier this
                  year.  Mr. Shah's acquisition of the mortgages
                  was effectuated pursuant to a certain Assignment
                  of Mortgage dated April 17, 2017.  The current
                  principal balance due under the mortgages i
                  approximately $9,164,699 as of July 11, 2017.

                  The Debtor intends to seek buyers for the
                  Property so it can effectuate an immediate sale
                  under a plan of reorganization.

                  The Debtor's primary assets consists of its
                  legal equitable interest in the Property
                  valued at $15.1 million.

                  Pending the anticipated recapture of the
                  Property, the Debtor has no immediate
                  income or expenses, but intends to file a
                  budget once the Property is rightfully
                  returned to its estate.

A QUIVER FULL: Intends to File Plan of Reorganization by Oct. 31
----------------------------------------------------------------
A Quiver Full, Inc. filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Northern District of Georgia its second motion asking the for an
extension of its deadline to file a plan of reorganization by an
additional 60 days, through and including October 31, 2017.

The Debtor also requests a concomitant extension of its exclusivity
period.

The Debtor explains that it filed its First Motion to Extend
Exclusivity and Plan Deadlines on June 30, 2017, which was granted
by the Court, thereby extending the Debtor's exclusivity period and
deadline to file a plan through and including September 1, 2017.

The Debtor claims that it is still attempting to negotiate a plan
with its major creditors, and has just negotiated a deal with its
primary creditor that will put the Debtor in a position to file a
confirmable plan in the near future.

ADPT DFW: Adkinson, et al., Ask Court to Reject Amended Disclosures
-------------------------------------------------------------------
David Adkinson, Brent Blonigan, Chatan Patel, Krissa Price, Michael
Price, and Truman Blocker III, individually and on behalf of all
other persons similarly situated, object to the Disclosure
Statement for ADPT DFW Holdings LLC, et al.'s First Amended Joint
Plan of Reorganization.

On Jan. 27, 2017, the Class Representatives filed a Class Action
Lawsuit against debtors Adeptus Health Inc., Adeptus Health LLC,
Adeptus Health Colorado Holdings LLC, and Adeptus Health Management
LLC.

In the Class Action Lawsuit, the Class Representatives, on behalf
of themselves and the other putative Class Members, allege that
Debtors have intentionally and systematically defrauded and
deceived consumers by failing to disclose certain facilities fees
to patients before they are treated at Debtors’ free-standing
emergency rooms.

The Class Representatives complain that the Disclosure Statement
fails to provide adequate information concerning the Releases and
Released Parties, and describes an unconfirmable plan.

They contend that the Debtors' Plan cannot be confirmed because it
impermissibly seeks to release and enjoin claims against unnamed
non-debtor entities for no justifiable reason. Section 524(e) of
the Code prohibits the discharge of debts of nondebtors. A section
105 injunction must be consistent with, and cannot alter, another
provision of the Code.

To add further to the vagaries of who is released, "non-Debtor
Affiliates" is undefined. The definition of "Exculpated Parties" is
similarly infirm. The inclusion of non-debtors as "Released
Parties" and the failure to define the "non-Debtor Affiliates" are
particularly problematic because proposed class counsel are aware
of multiple potential plaintiffs with claims against non-debtor
entities relating to the failure to disclose facilities fees.

There is no specific list by name in the Disclosure Statement as to
precisely what non-Debtor entities are being released. Creditors
need that information in order to make an informed decision about
the Plan. The unbounded and ambiguous definition of "Released
Parties" is insufficient and improper. There is also no description
in the Disclosure Statement as to what "service" or consideration
each such non-Debtor Released Party is providing the Debtors that
would justify a release from all claims. Creditors need that
information in order to make an informed decision about the Plan.
Creditors are entitled to know who they are releasing and what that
released party is providing in exchange for that release.

Because the Disclosure Statement fails to contain adequate
information concerning the releases and Released Parties, it is
impossible to make an informed judgment about the Plan and the
proposed treatment of claims against the Debtors and their
estates.

For the reasons stated, the Class Representatives respectfully urge
the Court to enter an order disapproving the Debtors' Disclosure
Statement for failing to meet the statutory disclosure requirements
of section 1125 of the Bankruptcy Code and for disclosing a plan
that is not confirmable under section 1129(a) of the Bankruptcy
Code, and for such other relief to which they are entitled.

ADPT DFW: Equity Committee Blocks Approval of Plan Disclosures
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Official Committee of Equity Security Holders of Adeptus Health
Inc. filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District
of Texas an objection and reservation of rights with respect to the
Disclosure Statement for ADPT DFW Holdings LLC, et al.,'s First
Amended Joint Plan of Reorganization.

The Equity Committee contends that the Amended Proposed Disclosure
Statement cannot be approved for at least three principal reasons:
first, the Amended Proposed Plan, as it presently stands, is
patently unconfirmable insofar as it is predicated on an
extraordinary remedy (substantive consolidation) that the Debtors
cannot justify under the circumstances of these Chapter 11 Cases;
second, the Amended Proposed Plan is the bad-faith product of a
conflicted Board and advisors that have abandoned their fiduciary
duties to the shareholders of Adeptus Health Inc.; and third, the
Amended Proposed Disclosure Statement lacks adequate information
with respect to several material aspects of the Amended Proposed
Plan such that creditors and equity holders cannot make an informed
voting decision with respect to the Plan.

The Court should not approve the Amended Proposed Disclosure
Statement because the underlying Amended Proposed Plan is "fatally
and obviously flawed," and proceeding to a confirmation hearing
with such a patently unconfirmable plan would be a waste of the
estates' resources, the Equity Committee asserts.  The infirmities
inherent in the Amended Proposed Plan are substantial, preclude
confirmation of the Plan, and must be addressed as soon as
practicable, the panel adds.

The Equity Committee also asserts that there is no information
contained in the Amended Proposed Disclosure Statement supporting
the Debtors’ contention that creditors relied on the Debtors
conducting business as a single unit. The evidence is quite the
contrary.

The second principal reason that the Amended Proposed Disclosure
Statement cannot be approved is because the Amended Proposed Plan
is the product of widespread conflicts of interest and a derogation
of fiduciary oversight. AHI (and AHI alone) may hold potentially
valuable claims and causes of action against at least three of the
four Board members related to, among other things, the
IPO/Secondary Offerings (such Board members were pre-IPO owners of
AH LLC who received their allocable share of net proceeds in the
IPO/Secondary Offerings).

Finally, the Court should not approve the Amended Proposed
Disclosure Statement because it lacks "adequate information," as
required under Bankruptcy Code Section 1125(a) and (b) on other
critical matters that should be considered by those entitled to
vote on the plan. The Amended Proposed Disclosure Statement also
contains several improper statements that appear to be an attempt
to insulate Sterling Partners and AHI’s directors and officers
from potential liability in respect of the IPO/Secondary
Offerings.

For these reasons, the Equity Committee requests that the Court:
sustain the Objection; deny approval of the Debtors' Amended
Proposed Disclosure Statement and the relief requested in the
motion to approve the same; and grant such other and further relief
as the Court may deem just, proper, and equitable.

ADPT DFW: Plan Unconfirmable, LG Summer, et al., Complain
---------------------------------------------------------
LG Summer Valley FCER, LLC, LG Rowlett FCER, LLC and LG Arvada
FCER, LLC object to the Disclosure Statement for ADPT DFW Holdings
LLC, et al.,'s First Amended Joint Plan of Reorganization.

The Landlords complain that the Amended Disclosure Statement that
fails to provide even the most basic information regarding their
proposed restructuring plan.

The Amended Disclosure Statement lacks important information such
as: (a) Debtors' treatment of their joint venture interests -- a
critical part of Debtors' business enterprise; (b) Debtors’
treatment of the significant joint venture accounts payable owed to
Debtors; (b) Debtors' current financial performance; (c) financial
projections under the Amended Plan; (d) an analysis of the expected
distributions from the Litigation Trust that will provide the sole
source of payment to unsecured creditors under the Amended Plan;
and (e) identification of the executory contracts and leases that
Debtors’ intend to assume or reject under the Amended Plan, or
the cure amounts associated therewith.

The Debtors also fail to provide any information in their Amended
Disclosure Statement or Amended Plan as to how they will
restructure these insolvent joint ventures and account for the
amounts owed by the Hospital Systems. It is impossible to determine
the feasibility of the Amended Plan without this information, which
Debtors' have openly and repeatedly conceded.

Despite these deficiencies, Debtors ask the Court to approve their
Amended Disclosure Statement and simply trust that Debtors will
eventually figure out how to reorganize their joint venture
relationships with the Hospital Systems -- the majority of their
business -- before plan confirmation.

Additionally, the Debtors are proposing a plan that is patently
unconfirmable. The Amended Plan impermissibly seeks to make
payments to Deerfield -- the de facto plan proponent -- on account
of its unsecured deficiency claim ahead of other unsecured
creditors. The Amended Plan also provides improper third party
releases to Deerfield and others.

For these reasons, the Court should deny approval of the Amended
Disclosure Statement.

ADVANCED MICRO: Incurs $16 Million Net Loss in Second Quarter
-------------------------------------------------------------
Advanced Micro Devices, Inc. filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q disclosing a net loss
of $16 million on $1.22 billion of net revenue for the three months
ended July 1, 2017, compared to net income of $69 million on $1.02
billion of net revenue for the three months ended June 25, 2016.

For the six months ended July 1, 2017, Advanced Micro recognized a
net loss of $89 million on $2.20 billion of net revenue compared to
a net loss of $40 million on $1.85 billion of net revenue for the
six months ended June 25, 2016.

As of July 1, 2017, the Company had $3.37 billion in total assets,
$2.95 billion in total liabilities and $417 million in total
stockholders' equity.

As of July 1, 2017, the Company's cash, cash equivalents and
marketable securities were $844 million compared to $1.26 billion
as of Dec. 31, 2016.  The decrease in the six months of 2017 was
due to net cash used in the Company's operating and investing
activities.  The percentage of cash, cash equivalents and
marketable securities held domestically was 93% as of July 1, 2017,
compared to 98% at Dec. 31, 2016.

The Company's aggregate debt obligations of $1.42 billion, net of
unamortized debt issuance costs and unamortized debt discount
associated with the 2.125% Convertible Senior Notes Due 2026
(2.125% Notes) as of July 1, 2017, decreased from $1.44 billion at
Dec. 31, 2016.

"We believe our cash, cash equivalents and marketable securities
balance along with our Secured Revolving Line of Credit will be
sufficient to fund operations, including capital expenditures, over
the next 12 months.  We believe that in the event we decide to
obtain external funding, we may be able to access the capital
markets on terms and in amounts adequate to meet our objectives.
Should we require additional funding, such as to meet payment
obligations of our long-term debt when due, we may need to raise
the required funds through borrowings or public or private sales of
debt or equity securities, which may be issued from time to time
under an effective registration statement, through the issuance of
securities in a transaction exempt from registration under the
Securities Act of 1933 or a combination of one or more of the
foregoing.  Uncertain global economic conditions have in the past
adversely impacted, and may in the future adversely impact, our
business.  If market conditions deteriorate, we may be limited in
our ability to access the capital markets to meet liquidity needs
on favorable terms or at all, which could adversely affect our
liquidity and financial condition, including our ability to
refinance maturing liabilities."

2015, and a net loss of $403 million for the year ended Dec. 27,
2014.

                       *     *     *

In March 2017, S&P Global Ratings said it raised its corporate
credit rating on Sunnyvale, Calif.-based Advanced Micro Devices to
'B-' from 'CCC+'.  The outlook is stable.  "Our upgrade reflects
our view of the Company's capital structure as sustainable
following a series of deleveraging transactions, a return to
revenue growth, and improving, if still weak, profitability," said
S&P Global Ratings credit analyst James Thomas.

As reported by the TCR on Feb. 9, 2017, Moody's Investors Service
upgraded Advanced Micro Devices, Inc.'s corporate family rating to
B3, senior unsecured rating to Caa1, and speculative grade
liquidity rating to SGL-1.  The outlook is stable.  The upgrade of
the corporate family rating to B3 reflects AMD's improved
performance outlook, driven by design wins, modest market share
gains, and an expanded set of product offerings.


AK STEEL: Moody's Assigns B3 Rating to $280MM Sr Unsecured Notes
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a B3 rating to AK Steel
Corporation's $280 million senior unsecured guaranteed notes due
2025. The notes are being issued under the company's shelf
registration rated (P)B3 for senior unsecured issuance. Proceeds
from this issue, together with cash on hand and borrowings under
the company's revolving credit facility, will be used to tender for
the 8.375% senior unsecured notes due 2022. The notes are
guaranteed by AK Steel Holding Corporation, AK Tube LLC, Mountain
State Carbon LLC, and AK Steel Properties. All other ratings,
including the B2 Corporate Family Rating (CFR) and the SGL-2
Speculative Grade Liquidity rating are unchanged. The outlook is
stable.

Assignments:

Issuer: AK Steel Corporation

-- Gtd Senior Unsecured Regular Bond/Debenture, Assigned B3
    (LGD5)

RATINGS RATIONALE

The B2 Corporate Family Rating (CFR) captures the company's still
relatively high leverage and exposure to volatile markets from a
demand, cost input and price perspective. The rating also considers
the need to develop its high strength steels such as NEXMET to meet
the challenges from aluminum and composite materials. Additionally,
while improving trends are expected in 2017, inventory working
capital build will be necessary to prepare for the Middletown blast
furnace outage in the second half of 2017. Consequently, cash flow
could be somewhat constrained in the second half of the year.

The B2 CFR however, considers AK Steel's improved earnings
performance, better debt protection metrics and lower debt levels
as a result of approximately $600 million in equity issuance in
2016 with proceeds going to debt reduction as well as subsequent
debt reduction. On a Moody's adjusted basis for pension and leases,
debt protection metrics improved materially with leverage, as
measured by the debt/EBITDA ratio improving to 5.1x at March 31,
2017 from 5.4x at December 31, 2016, 7.5x in 2015 and 13.5x in
2014. On a pro-forma basis, considering the net debt reduction
earlier in 2017, leverage at March 31, 2017 would have been about
4.7x.

The company's business mix, which evidences an improving and
meaningful level of value added products, including coated
(approximately 52% of shipments albeit on a lower shipment basis),
electrical and stainless products, and strong contracted position,
particularly with its automotive customers, are further supporting
factors in the rating.

The SGL-2 speculative grade liquidity rating reflects Moody's views
that AK Steel will maintain a good liquidity profile over the next
four quarters. The company's liquidity is supported by a $1.5
billion revolving credit facility (ABL) expiring in March 2019 that
is guaranteed by AK Steel Holding Corporation, AK Tube LLC,
Mountain State Carbon LLC, and AK Steel Properties. In addition,
the company had approximately $136 million in cash at June 30,
2017.

The stable outlook captures Moody's expectations that AK Steel will
continue to evidence acceptable debt protection metrics and be free
cash flow generative. The outlook also anticipates that the company
will continue to maintain its focus on value added products and
continue to achieve an improved product mix, particularly as it
rolls out its Advanced High Strength Steels over the next 12- 18
months.

The B1 rating on the company's senior secured notes (secured by
plant, property and equipment), under Moody's loss given default
methodology reflects the instrument's priority position in the
capital structure relative to a considerable amount of unsecured
liabilities below it. The B3 rating on the senior unsecured notes
reflects the junior position of these instruments relative to the
secured notes, the ABL revolver and priority accounts payables.

The rating could be downgraded should the company's liquidity
position deteriorate materially due to weak operating performance
and cash burn, and should the EBIT margin and EBIT/interest ratios
track below 3% and 2x respectively and leverage, as measured by the
debt/EBITDA ratio remain above 5.25x. and improving trends in the
EBIT margin, EBIT/interest The rating could be upgraded should the
company be able to sustain an EBIT margin of at least 6%,
EBIT/interest of at least 2.5x and debt/EBITDA of no more than
4.5x.

The principal methodology used in this rating was Global Steel
Industry published in October 2012.

Headquartered in West Chester, Ohio, AK Steel Corporation (AK
Steel) ranks as a middle tier integrated steel producer in the
United States, operating steelmaking and finishing plants in
Indiana, Kentucky, Ohio, Michigan and Pennsylvania. The company
also has a tube manufacturing facility in Mexico. AK Steel produces
flat-rolled carbon steels, including coated, cold-rolled and
hot-rolled products, as well as specialty stainless and electrical
steels. Principal end markets include automotive, steel service
centers, appliance, industrial machinery, infrastructure,
construction and distributors and converters. Through its AK Coal
Resources Inc. subsidiary, the company has interests in
metallurgical coal production. Revenues for the twelve months
ending June 30, 2017 were approximately $6 billion.


AK STEEL: S&P Rates New $280MM Senior Unsecured Notes Rated 'B-'
----------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings assigned its 'B-' issue-level rating to AK Steel
Corp.'s proposed $280 million senior unsecured notes due 2025. S&P
said, "The recovery rating of '5' indicates our expectation for
modest (10%-30%; rounded estimate: 10%) recovery in the event of
payment default.

S&P expects the company will use the proceeds to fund a cash tender
offer of its 8.375% senior unsecured notes due in 2022."

AOG ENTERTAINMENT: Abstention Mandatory in Suit vs. Apollo
----------------------------------------------------------

ENDEMOL SHINE NORTH AMERICA; ENDEMOL USA HOLDING INC.; TWENTY-FIRST
CENTURY FOX, INC.; 21st CENTURY FOX EUROPE AND ASIA;: and DOES
1-100, Defendants, Adv. Pro. No. 17-01053 (SMB) (Bankr. S.D. N.Y)
in the Superior Court of the State of California for the County of
Los Angeles, as assignee of the Debtor's prepetition secured
lenders.

In the proceeding, the Trust alleged that the Defendants induced a
breach of contract between the lenders and certain Debtor entities
and intentionally interfered with those contracts.  The Defendants
removed the action to the U.S. District Court for the Central
District of California, the California Federal Court transferred
the case to the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of
New York, and the latter Court referred the proceeding to this
Court.

The Trust has now moved for abstention and remand to the California
State Court. Judge Stuart M. Bernstein of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
for the Southern District of New York granted the motion.

The Trust has moved for an order abstaining from deciding the
claims and remanding the action to the California State Court. It
relies on principles of mandatory abstention, 28 U.S.C. section
1334(c)(2), permissive abstention, 28 U.S.C. section 1334(c)(1),
and remand based on equitable considerations under 28 U.S.C.
section 1452(b). It argues, in the main, that the Court has, at
most, non-core or "related to" jurisdiction, and the remaining five
elements of mandatory abstention, are satisfied. If, however,
mandatory abstention does not apply, the Court should abstain in
the exercise of its discretion or remand the action on equitable
grounds.

The Defendants argue in opposition that the Court has "related to"
jurisdiction. They also contend that the Court has core
jurisdiction. Furthermore, mandatory abstention is inapplicable
because the lawsuit cannot be timely adjudicated in California
State Court. Finally, permissive abstention and equitable remand
are inapplicable.

There is conflicting case law regarding who bears the burden of
proof on a remand motion. Generally, when removal of an action to
federal court is challenged, the removing party "has the burden of
establishing that removal is proper." Upon evaluation of the facts,
Judge Reinstein concludes that the Defendants bear the burden of
proving that mandatory abstention is not warranted. The parties
agree that the motion was timely, the action is based on state law,
28 U.S.C. section 1334 supplies the only basis for federal
jurisdiction and the action was commenced in state court. They
dispute only whether the Court's jurisdiction is core or non-core,
and whether the action can be timely adjudicated in the California
State Court.

Judge Reinstein finds that the Court lacks core jurisdiction. The
Trust's claims do not arise under title 11 or in a case under title
11. Although the Trust acquired the claims by assignment from the
Lenders under the Plan, the claims themselves pre-date the
bankruptcy cases, and are between non-debtor parties. Furthermore,
although they may affect the amount of allowable indemnification
claims, the adversary proceeding does not implicate the claims
allowance process.

The Court nevertheless has post-confirmation jurisdiction over the
non-core claims asserted in the adversary proceeding.

The only other element pertaining to mandatory abstention in
dispute is whether this action can be "timely adjudicated" in the
California State Court. "Four factors come into play in evaluating
§ 1334(c)(2) timeliness: (1) the backlog of the state court's
calendar relative to the federal court's calendar; (2) the
complexity of the issues presented and the respective expertise of
each forum; (3) the status of the title 11 bankruptcy proceeding to
which the state law claims are related; and (4) whether the state
court proceeding would prolong the administration or liquidation of
the estate."

Given the Court's determinations that it has only non-core
jurisdiction and the action can be timely adjudicated in the
California State Court, and the parties' agreement that the four
remaining factors weigh in favor of mandatory abstention, the Court
concludes that abstention is mandatory under 28 U.S.C. section
1334(c)(2). In light of this determination, the Court does not
decide whether it should remand this action on equitable grounds
pursuant to 28 U.S.C. section 1452(b), or abstain in the exercise
of its discretion pursuant to 28 U.S.C. section 1334(c)(1).

compared to a net loss available to common shareholders of $2.80
million on $5.50 million of total net revenues for the three months
ended March 31, 2016.

For the nine months ended March 31, 2017, the Company reported a

$40.15 million in total shareholders' equity.

The Company stated that as of July 28, 2017, and after giving
effect to the recent note exchange transaction, there is
outstanding an aggregate principal amount of $2,545,199 of senior

and a secured note subordinated to the interests of the existing
senior lenders in the principal amount of $330,000 with a maturity
date of June 15, 2018.  The Company expects its existing resources,
revenues generated from operations, and proceeds received from
other transactions we are considering (of which there can be no
assurance) to satisfy our working capital requirements for at least
the next twelve months; however, no assurances can be given, that
the Company will be able to generate sufficient cash flow from
operations, and proceeds received from other transactions the
Company is considering to satisfy its working capital requirements
for at least the next twelve months.

At March 31, 2017, unrestricted cash and cash equivalents amounted
to approximately $1,155,000 and current assets at that date were
approximately $3,180,000 compared to June 30, 2016, unrestricted
cash and cash equivalents of approximately $1,415,000 and current
assets of approximately $4,187,000.  The Company's current
estimated monthly operational requirements are approximately
$1,300,000.  Currently, the Company's available cash and cash
equivalents as of the filing date of this Quarterly Report on Form
10-Q is approximately $1,023,000.  For the nine months ended March
31, 2017, net cash provided by operating activities was
approximately $570,000, net cash used in investing activities was
approximately $22,000, net cash used in financing activities was
approximately $808,000 and total cash used was approximately
$259,000, which primarily reflects repayments of notes payable
during the nine months ended March 31, 2017.

CALIFORNIA RESOURCES: Reports $48 Million Net Loss for 2nd Quarter
------------------------------------------------------------------
California Resources Corporation filed with the Securities and
Exchange Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q disclosing a
net loss attributable to common stock of $48 million on $516
million of total revenues and other for the three months ended June
30, 2017, compared to a net loss attributable to common stock of
$140 million on $317 million of total revenues and other for the
same period during the prior year.

For the six months ended June 30, 2017, the Company reported net
income attributable to common stock of $5 million on $1.10 billion
of total revenues and other compared to a net loss attributable to
common stock of $190 million on $639 million of total revenues and
other for the six months ended June 30, 2016.

As of June 30, 2017, California Resources had $6.15 billion in
total assets, $6.64 billion in total liabilities and a total
deficit of $491 million.

Todd Stevens, president and chief executive officer, said, "During
the second quarter of 2017, we expanded our capital activity
utilizing joint venture capital.  Our team safely ramped up
activity to 7 rigs and continued to identify efficiencies and cost
savings.  In fact, recent wells delivered stronger-than-expected
performance at lower-than-expected costs.  We expect to build on
this success in the third quarter and remain on track to grow
production in the second half of the year."

Taxes other than on income of $31 million for the second quarter of
2017 were $11 million lower than the same period of 2016.
Exploration expense of $6 million for the second quarter of 2017
was $1 million higher than the same period of 2016.

Capital investment in the second quarter of 2017 totaled $82
million, of which $55 million was directed to drilling and capital
workovers.

Second quarter 2017 cash used by operating activities of $13
million included interest payments of $151 million and property tax
payments of $37 million.

Cash provided by operating activities for the first six months of
2017 was $120 million and free cash flow after working capital was
$57 million after taking into account capital that was funded by
BSP.

                          Hedging Update

CRC continues to opportunistically seek hedging transactions to
protect its cash flow, operating margins and capital program and to
maintain liquidity.  Recently, CRC extended its crude oil hedges
with swaps for 29,000 barrels per day for the first half of 2018 at
an average strike price of $60 Brent, locking in a spread of $15
per barrel above prevailing Brent index if Brent falls below $45.
For the second half of 2018, CRC entered into swaps for 4,000
barrel per day at an average strike price of $60 Brent, in addition
to locking in a spread of $15 per barrel if Brent falls below $45.
    
     Operational Update and 2017 Capital Investment Plan

CRC continued to increase its rig count in the second quarter of
2017 and ended the quarter operating seven rigs.  One rig was
focused on steamfloods, two rigs on shales, one rig on waterfloods
and three rigs on conventional reservoirs.  CRC expects one of
these rigs will be used for exploration in the second half of the
year.  An additional rig is anticipated to start up in the third
quarter to work on steamfloods for the rest of the year.

With capital from two joint ventures, CRC expects a total 2017
capital program of approximately $400 million.  CRC's capital
program reflects approximately $17 million in efficiencies and cost
savings identified year to date.  CRC's 2017 capital program will
focus on core fields - Elk Hills, Wilmington, Kern Front, Buena
Vista, Mt. Poso, Pleito Ranch, Wheeler Ridge and the delineation of
Kettleman North Dome.

CRC has recently closed the second round of funding with BSP and
expects the joint ventures to allow CRC to maintain at least a
six-rig program for the balance of the year.

rating on California Resources to 'CCC+' from 'SD'.  "We raised
the corporate credit rating on CRC to reflect our reassessment of
its credit profile following the tender for its senior unsecured
notes," said S&P Global Ratings credit analyst Paul Harvey.  "The
rating reflects our expectation that debt leverage will remain at
what we consider unsustainable levels over the next 24 months
despite the net-debt reduction of about $625 million from the
tender," he added.

Resources' Corporate Family Rating to 'Caa2' from 'Caa1' and
Probability of Default Rating to 'Caa2-PD' from 'Caa1-PD'.


CAPITAL TRANSPORTATION: Has Until Aug. 10 to File Chapter 11 Plan
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Judge John K. Olson of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of Florida the periods within which Capital
Transportation, Inc. have the exclusive right to propose a plan of
reorganization and to solicit acceptances of such plan, through
August 10, 2017 and October 10, 2017, respectively.

The Troubled Company Reporter has previously reported that the
Debtor requested the Court for a 60-day extension of the exclusive
periods because, among others, (a) it continues to make good faith
progress towards reorganization, and (b) it was not seeking to use
exclusivity to pressure creditors into accepting a plan they find
unacceptable. In addition, the Debtor asserted that the requested
extension will afford the Debtor a full and fair opportunity to
negotiate, propose, and seek acceptances of a Chapter 11 plan.

                  About Capital Transportation

Capital Transportation, Inc., sought protection under Chapter 11 of
the Bankruptcy Code (Bankr. S.D. Fla. Case No. 17-11664) on Feb.
10, 2017.  John Camillo, president, signed the petition.  The
Debtor estimated assets of less than $500,000 and liabilities of $1
million.  David A. Ray, P.A., is serving as counsel to the Debtor.

An official committee of unsecured creditors has not been appointed
in the Chapter 11 case of Capital Transportation, Inc. as of April
17, 2017, according to the court docket.


CATCH 22 LINY: Seeks Nov. 1 Exclusive Plan Filing Period Extension
------------------------------------------------------------------
Catch 22 LINY Corp. d/b/a Reel requests the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
for the Eastern District of New York to further extend its
exclusive period to file a plan of reorganization by 90 days or
through November 1, 2017, as well as its exclusive period to
solicit votes on a filed plan by an additional 60 days or through
January 5, 2018.

The Debtor asserts that its ability to fund a Chapter 11 Plan is
dependent upon the success of its ongoing business operations. The
plan will be funded from operations of the business and having
several months of actual operations upon which to base the
projections is of great import to the Debtor.

The Debtor tells the Court that it is currently in the process of
reviewing its operations and future cash flow projections all in
contemplation of a Plan filing. The Debtor expects to fund its plan
largely from the Summer months, the restaurant's busy season.

Consequently, the Debtor needs more time to assess revenues and
expenses for the Summer of 2017. The Debtor alleges that actual
operations for these months will give a benchmark for projections
for the next five to eight years. In addition, the Debtor claims
that it has engaged two new managers on April 4, 2017, and
operations have been ongoing to improve the quality of service,
reduce expenses and increase revenue in order to fund a Plan.

The Debtor also needs more time to review and assess the claims
filed against it and also to defend the attempt by its Landlords to
terminate its leases which are essential to the Debtor's
reorganization. A hearing on the issue as to whether a pre-petition
termination of the Leases occurred as well as the Debtor's motion
to assume those same Leases is scheduled for September 28, 2017.

Accordingly, the Debtor submits that cause exists to grant the
proposed extensions of the current exclusive periods. The Debtor
believes that it is essential and therefore beneficial to the
estate and its creditors that the Debtor be afforded the time
necessary in an environment where the Debtor is not distracted with
the concomitant threat of competing plans, unproductive
confrontations and the increasing administrative costs associated
therewith.

A hearing on the Debtor's Motion will be held on September 11, 2017
at 1:30 p.m.

CHARLES EDWARD TAYLOR: P. Caiarelli Lacked Standing to Sue
----------------------------------------------------------
Patricia Caiarelli, acting as guardian for her minor son, sought
relief under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 60(b)(6) from a 2013
bankruptcy court order dismissing for lack of standing her
adversary proceeding against the debtor, Charles Taylor II.  The
bankruptcy court denied Caiarelli's motion, and she appealed.
Judge Gary Feinerman of the U.S. District Court for the Northern
District of Illinois affirmed the bankruptcy court's judgment.

On April 23, 2012, Taylor filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy. On July
31, 2012, Caiarelli commenced this adversary proceeding against
Taylor. Caiarelli sought, essentially, a finding that Taylor's
judgment debt to the estate was nondischargeable and a ruling that
her son was entitled to some of Taylor's property.

Taylor moved to dismiss the adversary proceeding on the ground that
Caiarelli lacked standing to enforce the state court judgment.
Taylor argued that Caiarelli had failed to prove that the judgment
was actually assigned to her, pointing to a letter from the state
judge questioning whether Caiarelli had completed all the steps
necessary to effectuate the assignment. After reviewing the state
judge's letter and hearing argument on its significance, the
bankruptcy court held that Caiarelli had failed to establish her
standing to bring the adversary proceeding and dismissed it on
March 20, 2013.

The sole question on appeal is whether the bankruptcy court abused
its discretion in denying Caiarelli's Rule 60(b) motion. Rule 60(b)
states:

On motion and just terms, [a] court may relieve a party or its
legal representative from a final judgment, order, or proceeding
for the following reasons:

   (1) mistake, inadvertence, surprise, or excusable neglect;

   (2) newly discovered evidence that, with reasonable diligence,
could not have been discovered in time to move for a new trial
under Rule 59(b);

   (3) fraud . . ., misrepresentation, or misconduct by an opposing
party;

   (4) the judgment is void;

   (5) the judgment has been satisfied, released or discharged; it
is based on an earlier judgment that has been reversed or vacated;
or applying it prospectively is no longer equitable; or

   (6) any other reason that justifies relief.

Caiarelli invokes only the sixth, catchall prong.

Caiarelli contends that the failure to pursue a timely appeal or
seek reconsideration on the issue in question does not foreclose
relief under Rule 60(b)(6), citing Brennan v. Midwestern United
Life Insurance Co. for support. But Brennan is distinguishable; the
movants there were unnamed, absent class members at the time
judgment was entered against them, and so had a valid excuse for
failing to seek redress sooner. Moreover, the movants in Brennan
invoked not only the Rule 60(b)(6) catchall on which Caiarelli
exclusively relies, but also Rule 60(b)(4), which helped tip the
balance in their favor. Indeed, the passage from Brennan on which
Caiarelli relies actually states the very rule she contends does
not exist: "While Rule 60(b) is not a substitute for an appeal and
the finality of judgments ought not be disturbed except on very
narrow grounds, a liberal construction should be given the rule to
the end that judgments which are void or are vehicles of injustice
not be left standing."

Caiarelli also cites Local 332, Allied Industrial Workers of
America v. Johnson Controls, Inc. for the proposition that there is
no "inflexible" rule against a party's obtaining Rule 60(b) relief
when it could have but did not appeal. That case is even less
helpful to her. In Local 332, the Seventh Circuit denied Rule 60(b)
relief in large part because the movant had previously "elected not
to pursue an appeal. Local 332 just supports the unremarkable
proposition that, in rare circumstances, a party may obtain Rule
60(b) relief even if it did not appeal, but that relief is
unavailable if the party reasonably could have appealed but did
not.

In her reply brief, Caiarelli falls back to arguing that, because
the bankruptcy court's contempt order required her to vacate the
ratification order, that vacatur eventually "would have terminated
any Rule 59(e) motion or appeal." There is no way to know if that
is how the appeal or reconsideration motion would have played out,
since she did not pursue either option. And Caiarelli provides no
support for the proposition that a Rule 60(b)(6) movant is excused
from pursuing other avenues of relief solely because those avenues
might later prove futile.

For these reasons, the bankruptcy court's denial of Caiarelli's
Rule 60(b)(6) motion is affirmed.

11, Debtor. PATRICIA J. CAIARELLI, as Guardian,

CHESAPEAKE ENERGY: Posts Net Income of $470M in Second Quarter
--------------------------------------------------------------
Chesapeake Energy Corporation filed with the Securities and
Exchange Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q reporting net
income available to common stockholders of $470 million on $2.28
billion of total revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2017,
compared to a net loss available to common stockholders of $1.81
billion on $1.62 billion of total revenues for the three months
ended June 30, 2016.

For the six months ended June 30, 2017, Chesapeake reported net
income attributable to common stockholders of $547 million on $5.03
billion of total revenues compared to a net loss available to
common stockholders of $2.92 billion on $3.57 billion of total
revenues for the six months ended June 30, 2016.

As of June 30, 2017, the Company had $11.92 billion in total
assets, $12.60 billion in total liabilities and a total deficit of
$684 million.

Doug Lawler, Chesapeake's chief executive officer, commented, "Our
assets continue to deliver improving well results due to longer
laterals and enhanced completion techniques, with a new record
operated well in the Marcellus being a prime example of this.  We
expect our total production to move higher throughout the year,
driven by large turn-in-line projects underway in the Eagle Ford,
Utica and Powder River Basin operating areas.  This has already
started, as we averaged approximately 548,300 barrels of oil
equivalent per day, including a peak rate of 90,400 barrels of oil
production, for the month of July.

"Despite our anticipated growth, we are actively managing our 2017
capital program to the highest-return investments in our portfolio
or reducing spending in certain areas altogether.  Our planned
activity levels result in a reduction of our rig count and wells
placed on production during the last six months of the year, as our
2017 capital program has been focused on restoring our cash flow
generating capability, improving our margins and growing value.
Improving our balance sheet is our number one priority at
Chesapeake, and we will remain flexible in our capital spending
program, both for the remainder of 2017 and in 2018, as we continue
to drive toward cash flow neutrality."

As of June 30, 2017, Chesapeake's principal debt balance was
approximately $9.7 billion with $13 million in cash on hand,
compared to $10.0 billion with $882 million in cash on hand as of
Dec. 31, 2016.  The company's total liquidity as of June 30, 2017,
was approximately $3.1 billion, which included cash on hand and a
borrowing capacity of approximately $3.1 billion under the
company's senior secured revolving credit facility.  At June 30,
2017, the company had $575 million of outstanding borrowings under
the revolving credit facility and had used $100 million of the
revolving credit facility for various letters of credit.  The
company's borrowing base under the senior secured revolving credit
facility was reaffirmed by the lenders at $3.785 billion on
June 15, 2017.

Year to date, Chesapeake has sold or agreed to sell multiple
producing properties for approximately $360 million to various
private buyers, excluding the proceeds from the company's
Haynesville Shale divestitures announced in December 2016 that
closed in 2017.  As of June 30, 2017, Chesapeake has closed $95
million in asset sales with approximately $265 million pending and
expected to close by the end of the 2017 third quarter, subject to
certain customary post-closing adjustments.

COMPACTION UNLIMITED: Asahi Opposes Approval of Plan, Disclosures
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Asahi Kasei Plastics of North America, Inc., filed with the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Texas an objection to
the approval of Compaction Unlimited, LLC's Chapter 11 Plan as well
as the conditionally-approved Disclosure Statement.

After conducting a thorough review of the Disclosure Statement, the
Plan, and all exhibits, Asahi believes the Disclosure Statement
lacks adequate information upon which Asahi can make an informed
judgment regarding the Plan, and the Plan itself is not
confirmable.

Specifically, Asahi complains that the Debtor has not provided
adequate information regarding some material aspects of the Plan:

   * The amount insiders will receive under the plan.  The Plan
Documents lists Ron Bowlin as receiving $48,000 as his annual
salary. According to Exhibit C-2 to the Disclosure Statement, this
proposed salary appears to be an increase from pre-petition salary.
Further information is required given the very limited cash flow.

   * The pool size of Class 4 general unsecured creditors. In some
places, the Debtor indicates that Class 4 creditors total $588,000
in claims. A schedule of these creditors and claims would be more
helpful to decide whether these claims are all allowable.

   * Whether the Debtor is proposing a pot plan or dividend plan.
Throughout the Plan Documents, the Debtor proposes to pay
$140,000.00 for a 24% dividend. Still needing clarification is
whether the Debtor is proposing a "pot" plan, or whether the Debtor
is promising a 24% dividend. For the reasons described below, this
is a distinction with a potentially material difference.

Asahi also objects to the confirmation of the Plan for the
following reasons:

   * The Plan does not comply with all provisions of the Bankruptcy
Code. Specifically, the Disclosure Statement does not contain
Adequate Information and should not be approved on a final basis
under section 1125(a) of the Bankruptcy Code.

   * The Plan Documents lack sufficient disclosures regarding
payments to insiders under the Plan.

   * The Plan is not in the best interest of creditors. Under the
circumstances, the promised payment of $140,000 over an unspecified
period of time (perhaps 60 months) is no more valuable to creditors
an immediate liquidation of the remaining assets through chapter 7.
Further, the remedies available under Article 9 of the Plan merely
delay what appears to be an inevitability. Rather than delay
creditors' collection efforts, creditors would be better off if the
limited assets (including $28,000 in collectible receivables) are
distributed to creditors pro rata, and a trustee may investigate
potential causes ofaction.

   * The plan is not fair and equitable, and it violates the
absolute priority rule. Under the Plan, Mr. Bowlin will maintain
his ownership of the Debtor, but creditors will not be paid in
full. The proposed payment of $140,000 to creditors will be derived
from future operations of the reorganized debtor's -- not from a
"new value" contribution by Mr. Bowlin. For this reason, the Plan
cannot be confirmed.

   * The Adequate Information is material to Asahi's and other
creditors' judgment with respect to the Plan. Without such
information creditors cannot determine the risks posed by the Plan
and, in some instances, whether the Debtor will be able to make the
proposed payments. For similar reasons, the Plan cannot be
confirmed as proposed. It lacks necessary disclosure and clarity to
allow creditors to make informed decisions, and it fails several
critical elements required for confirmation under section 1129(a).

For these reasons, Asahi requests that the Court: (i) sustain this
Objection and deny approval of the Disclosure Statement until the
Debtors supplement such information as required by section 1125 of
the Bankruptcy Code; (ii) deny confirmation of the Plan for the
reasons set forth above; and (iii) grant such further relief as the
Court deems just and proper.

The Troubled Company Reporter previously reported that the Plan
provides for the repayment of 100% of its administrative debts and
24% of its unsecured debts by paying $2,500 per month for 60 months
for a total base pay-in of $150,000 with the first payment on
August 1, 2017. Attorney's fees of $10,000 will be paid from first
funds as an administrative claim subject to court approval (Class
1). There are no priority creditors (Class 2) or secured creditors
(Class 3). The holders of all unsecured claims will receive
payments totaling $140,000 or 24% of the amount of their allowed
claims in the amount of $588,000 (Class 4).

Concordia -- http://www.concordiarx.com/-- is a diverse,
international specialty pharmaceutical company focused on generic
and legacy pharmaceutical products.  Concordia has an international
footprint with sales in more than 90 countries, and has a
diversified portfolio of more than 200 established, off-patent
products. Concordia also markets Photofrin for the treatment of
certain rare forms of cancer.  The Company operates out of
facilities in Oakville, Ontario and, through its subsidiaries,
operates out of facilities in Bridgetown, Barbados; London, England
and Mumbai, India.

Concordia reported a net loss of US$1.31 billion for the year ended
Dec. 31, 2016, compared to a net loss of US$31.56 million for the
year ended Dec. 31, 2015.  

As of March 31, 2017, Concordia had US$3.61 billion in total
assets, US$4.05 billion in total liabilities and a total
shareholders' deficit of US$439.06 million.

                          *    *    *

In November 2016, Moody's Investors Service downgraded the ratings
of Concordia International Corp. including the Corporate Family
Rating to 'Caa1' from 'B3' and the Probability of Default Rating to
'Caa1-PD' from 'B3-PD'.  "The downgrade follows continued weakness
in the business, an uncertain competitive environment, and an
unclear and challenging path towards deleveraging," said Jessica
Gladstone, Moody's senior vice president.

In May 2017, S&P Global Ratings lowered its corporate credit rating
on Concordia to 'CCC+' from 'B-'.  "The downgrade reflects the
continued deterioration in Concordia's operating results, and
increased regulatory risk, which leads us to see heightened risk
for a potential distressed exchange or debt restructuring," said
S&P Global Ratings credit analyst Kim Logan.


CONTINENTAL BUILDING: Moody's Hikes CFR to Ba3, Outlook Stable
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service upgraded the Corporate Family Rating
(CFR) of Continental Building Products Operating Company LLC,
subsidiary of Continental Building Products, Inc. (collectively
"Continental") to Ba3 from B1 and its Probability of Default Rating
to Ba3-PD from B1-PD, since Moody's projects key credit metrics
will continue to improve over the next 12 to 18 months. In related
rating actions, Moody's affirmed Continental's Speculative Grade
Liquidity Rating of SGL-1, and upgraded its senior secured
revolving credit facility and term loan to Ba3 from B1. The rating
outlook is changed to stable from positive.

The following ratings/assessments are affected by actions:

Corporate Family Rating, upgraded to Ba3 from B1;

Probability of Default Rating, upgraded to Ba3-PD from B1-PD;

$75 Million Senior Secured First Lien Revolving Credit Facility
due 2021, upgraded to Ba3 (LGD4) from B1 (LGD4);

$272.9 Million Senior Secured First Lien Term Loan due 2023,
upgraded to Ba3 (LGD4) from B1 (LGD4);

Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating, affirmed at SGL-1;

Outlook, changed to Stable from Positive.

RATINGS RATIONALE

The Corporate Family Rating upgrade to Ba3 from B1 is the result of
Moody's expectations for improved credit metrics. Over the next 12
to 18 months, Moody's projects revenues growing by 9.6% to about
$515 million, from $471 million from LTM 1Q17, and EBITA margins
staying above 20%. Adjusted debt leverage in Moody's forecast will
remain around 2x and interest coverage, measured as adjusted
EBITA-interest expense, will stay above 7x over Moody's time
horizon. Fundamentals for US private construction activity,
Continental's sole end market, remain solid, supporting future
growth. Moody's projects total new housing starts could reach 1.25
million in 2017 (a 7% increase from about 1.17 million in 2016) and
maintains a positive outlook for the domestic homebuilding
industry.

The Ba3 Corporate Family Rating incorporates Continental's lack of
scale and geographic and single-product concentrations, primary
risks facing the company. It operates in highly competitive
markets, which could create operating and financial pressures.
Although sound now, private construction is very cyclical. An
economic downturn would weaken cash flows and debt-service
capabilities. Further, the rating at this time considers deployment
of capital for share repurchases.

The change in rating outlook to stable from positive reflects
Moody's expectations that Continental's credit profile will support
the upgraded Ba3 Corporate Family Rating over the next 12 to 18
months.

Further positive rating actions are unlikely over the intermediate
term despite strong credit metrics. Continental's business profile
characterized by its small revenue base and geographic and
single-product concentrations are significant credit constraints
and difficult to overcome. However, Continental's ratings could be
upgraded if revenues were to approach $1.5 billion while
maintaining current debt credit metrics.

A downgrade is not anticipated over the next 12 to 18 months.
However, negative rating pressures may result if Continental
performs below Moody's expectations, resulting in the following
credit metrics (ratios include Moody's standard adjustments) and
characteristics:

-- EBITA margins below 15%

-- Debt-to-EBITDA sustained above 3.5x

-- Significant deterioration in liquidity

-- Large shareholder distributions

-- Large debt-financed acquisitions

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

Continental, headquartered in Herndon, VA, is a manufacturer of
wallboard and related products for commercial buildings and
residential houses. It operates in Eastern United States and
Eastern Canada. Revenues for the 12 months through March 31, 2017
totaled approximately $471 million.


DANIEL BACANER: Scott Buying Memphis Property for $90K
------------------------------------------------------
Daniel F. Bacaner and Lisa T. Bacaner ask the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
for the Western District of Tennessee to authorize their sale of
two parcels of real property, known locally as 5219 Millbranch and
5220 Lochinvar in Memphis, Tennessee, to DeArchie Scott for
$90,000.

In the Debtors' Chapter 11 Plan, the treatment of the secured claim
of Trust One Bank, now Synovus Bank, was set forth in Class 5.  The
proposed treatment of the Class 5 creditor provided for sale of the
Property, with the proceeds of sale going to Synovus in full
satisfaction of its claim, inter alia.

The Debtors were unable to sell the Property within the time
provided in the Plan, by Sept. 19, 2013.  They offered to surrender
it to Synovus, but Synovus declined to accept it.  They continue to
own the Property and Synovus continues to hold its claim and a Deed
of Trust on it securing payment of the claim.

The Debtors listed the Property for sale on on July 1, 2017, for
$100,000.  They received an offer to purchase it for $90,000 from
the Purchaser, sale to close by Sept. 28, 2017, which the Debtors
have accepted.  The Debtors propose that the Property be conveyed
to the Purchaser "as is," free and clear of all liens, claims, and
encumbrances which will attach to the proceeds of sale to be
distributed among the various parties as their interests may appear
at the time of sale.

The Parties have agreed that, at closing, Synovus will receive all
the net proceeds of sale after payment of the administrative
expenses of sale and the real property taxes due and owing, in full
satisfaction of Synovus' claim as a Class 5 creditor under the
Debtors' Plan.  Following the closing of the sale, the Debtors'
liability to Synovus will be fully satisfied and extinguished.

A copy of the original Purchase and Sale Agreement and the fully
executed Counter Offer attached to the Motion is available for free
at:

     http://bankrupt.com/misc/Daniel_Bacaner_380_Sales.pdf

The Debtors believe that the $90,000 sale price is fair and
reasonable and fair value for the Property.

Daniel F. Bacaner and Lisa T. Bacaner sought Chapter 11 protection
(Bankr. D. Tenn. Case No. 09-26292) on June 11, 2009.  The Debtors
estimated total assets at $2,341,803 and total debt at $2,298,450.
The Debtors tapped Eugene G. Douglass, Esq., as counsel.  Their
Chapter 11 Plan was confirmed on Nov. 3, 2010.


DARDEN-GREEN CO: Hinkle to Get Note With 5% Per Annum Over 10 Yrs.
------------------------------------------------------------------
Darden-Green Co., Inc., filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the Northern District of Alabama an amended disclosure statement
dated July 31, 2017, referring to the Debtor's plan of
reorganization.

Class 3 Secured Claim of Hinkle Metal Supply will receive a note in
the amount of their claim together with interest payable at the per
annum rate of 5%, in equal monthly installments over a period of 10
years.  Their judgment lien will remain in effect to secure the
note issued by the Debtor to the claimant.

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

          http://bankrupt.com/misc/alnb16-01957-121.pdf

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on May 4, 2017, the
Debtor proposed in the Plan that holders of Class 5 allowed small
unsecured claims in the amount of $16,117.04 or less receive 25% of
their claims in cash within 30 days of the confirmation of the
plan.  Holders of Class 6 allowed large unsecured claims totaling
$1,234,823.95 be issued a promissory note, which note will provide
for the payment of no less than 25% of that allowed claim over a
period of 79 months.   

                         About Darden-Green

Darden-Green Co., Inc., based in Birmingham, Alabama, filed a
Chapter 11 petition (Bankr. N.D. Ala. Case No. 16-01957) on May 12,

DIGITAL REALTY: Fitch Assigns BB+ Preferred Stock Rating
--------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has assigned a 'BBB' rating to the guaranteed notes
issued by Digital Realty Trust, L.P., the operating partnership of
Digital Realty Trust, Inc. (NYSE: DLR), and assigned a 'BB+' rating
to the preferred stock issued by Digital Realty Trust, Inc.. The
Rating Outlook is Stable.  

KEY RATING DRIVERS

DLR exhibits credit strengths including a global platform, granular
tenant base, good access to multiple forms of capital, strong
liquidity, and a deep management bench. These credit positives are
balanced by the niche asset class in which the company operates
resulting in a less liquid investment market and leveragability
than other commercial property asset classes.

Fitch's ratings and Outlook for DLR reflect the stronger tenant
profile, increased product offering and scale resulting from its
merger with DuPont Fabros Technology, Inc., announced in June. The
merger will bolster DLR's portfolio in key markets like Northern
Virginia, Chicago, and Silicon Valley while also increasing
exposure to cloud service providers and enabling enhanced top-line
growth. Fitch expects the company's credit metrics to remain
largely unchanged post-transaction.

KEY METRICS APPROPRIATE FOR RATING: Fitch estimates DLR's pro forma
leverage at 5.0x for the trailing 12 months (TTM) ended June 30,
2017 and Fitch expects leverage (when excluding preferred stock)
will remain between 5.0x and 5.5x over the next 12 to 24 months,
consistent with the company's leverage historically. Fitch expects
leverage including 50% of preferred stock will remain between 5.5x
to 6.0x through Fitch forecast period.

Fitch expects fixed charge coverage will sustain in the high-3x to
low-4x range over the next 12 to 24 months driven by same-store net
operating income (NOI) growth, cash flow from the lease-up of
development projects, and increased cash flows from joint ventures
offset by a reduction of EBITDA from the sale of non-core assets.
Pro forma coverage is strong for the rating at 3.9x for the TTM
ended June 30, 2017.

GLOBAL PLATFORM & GOOD TENANT DIVERSITY: Digital's post-merger
product offering will consist of turn-key flex, powered base
building, cloud-based computing, colocation and interconnection
across its 157 operating properties within 30 markets across 12
countries and four continents. The company also benefits from a
granular tenant roster highlighted by IBM ('A+'/Negative Outlook)
at 6.2% of pro forma annual base rent, Facebook at 5.9%, and
CenturyLink, Inc. ('BB+'/Rating Watch Negative) at 4.6%.

GOOD ACCESS TO MOST CAPITAL SOURCES: Since 2006, the company has
issued $4.8 billion of common equity, $1.9 billion of preferred
equity, $3.5 billion of dollar-denominated unsecured bonds, GBP1.3
billion of sterling-denominated unsecured bonds and EUR725 million
of euro-denominated bonds. The company's sterling and euro bonds
function as a natural hedge given its exposure to the UK and other
European countries.

LESS CONTINGENT LIQUIDITY FOR DATA CENTERS: DLR's financial metrics
are intrinsically strong for the 'BBB' rating category, but the
ratings remain constrained by data center properties that are
presently a less-than-mature asset class within a less liquid
trading and financing market. The availability of mortgage capital
for data centers is limited compared to other commercial real
estate property types, which reduces the company's sources of
contingent liquidity. Despite significant barriers to entry and
favorable medium-term IT trends, data centers are specialized
properties and technological obsolescence over the long term is
possible.

Digital is committed to an unsecured funding profile which Fitch
generally views favorably. Pro forma for the merger, unencumbered
assets (unencumbered NOI divided by a 10% stressed capitalization
rate) covered net unsecured debt by 2.1x as of June 30, 2017, which
is adequate for the 'BBB' rating.

DEEP MANAGEMENT BENCH; CONSERVATIVE MIND-SET: The company's
management team has strong real estate expertise and technical
acumen as well as strong knowledge of the sector, including cloud
services solutions. The company consistently funds large-scale
acquisitions on a leverage-neutral basis, pre-funding the equity
portion at transaction announcement to minimize capital markets
execution risk.

PREFERRED STOCK NOTCHING: The two-notch differential between DLR's
IDR and preferred stock rating is consistent with Fitch's criteria,
"Non-Financial Corporates Hybrids Treatment and Notching Criteria",
available at 'www.fitchratings.com'. The securities are deeply
subordinated and have loss absorption elements that would likely
result in poor recoveries in the event of a corporate default.

STABLE OUTLOOK: The Stable Outlook reflects Fitch's expectation
that metrics will remain appropriate for the rating following the
closing of the merger and through the forecast period.

DERIVATION SUMMARY

Although smaller, Fitch rates the company more highly than data
center REIT peer Equinix (NYSE: EQIX, 'BB'/Outlook Stable) due to
DLR's larger, mostly owned unencumbered property portfolio which
enhances its contingent liquidity versus EQIX's 35% ownership of
its assets at the first quarter of 2017 (1Q17). DLR also manages
longer length leases averaging 5.0 years across its portfolio at
June 30, 2017 versus EQIX's typical one to three year lease length
that exposes it to greater cash flow volatility. Fitch's rating
sensitivities generally require the company to maintain more
conservative credit metrics than other 'BBB' category REITs with
commercial tenants, such as office owner Boston Properties, Inc.
('BBB+'/Outlook Stable) and industrial landlord Prologis, Inc.
('BBB+'/Outlook Stable), due to the shallower depth of private
institutional equity and secured mortgage debt capital access for
data centers relative to office and industrial properties.

KEY ASSUMPTIONS

Fitch's key assumptions within the rating case for the issuer
include:

-- Low single-digit same-store NOI growth through the forecast
    period;
-- DuPont Fabros transaction closes in the second half of 2017 on

    terms substantially similar to those announced by the company;
-- The company funds additional growth and development on a
    leverage-neutral basis, resulting in leverage (excluding
    preferred stock) ranging between 5.0x to 5.5x, and 5.5x to
    6.0x when including 50% of preferred stock as debt.

RATING SENSITIVITIES

Future Developments That May, Individually or Collectively, Lead to
Positive Rating Action:

-- Increased mortgage lending activity in the data center sector,

    demonstrating contingent liquidity for the asset class;
-- Fitch's expectation of leverage, excluding preferred stock,
    sustaining below 4.5x (leverage for TTM ended June 30, 2017
    was 5.1x; 5.0x pro forma for the DuPont merger);
-- Fitch's expectation of fixed charge coverage sustaining above
    3x (coverage for the TTM ended June 30, 2017 was 3.7x; 3.9x
    pro forma for the DuPont merger).

Future Developments That May, Individually or Collectively, Lead to
Negative Rating Action:

-- Fitch's expectation of leverage, excluding preferred stock,
    sustaining above 6x;
-- Fitch's expectation of fixed charge coverage sustaining below
    2.5x;
-- Base case liquidity coverage sustaining below 1x (pro forma
    liquidity coverage was 3.1x);
-- Sustained declines in rental rates and same-property NOI.

LIQUIDITY

Pro Forma Liquidity Coverage Strong at 3.5x: Estimated pro forma
liquidity coverage (defined as pro forma liquidity sources divided
by uses) is strong at 3.5x for the period from July 1, 2017 to Dec.
31, 2019. Sources of liquidity include unrestricted cash less $10
million in working capital requirements, availability under DLR's
global unsecured revolving credit facility, projected retained cash
flows from operating activities after dividends and distributions,
and estimated proceeds from the unsecured bond issuances. Pro forma
uses of liquidity include debt maturities, projected recurring
capital expenditures, and cost-to-complete active development.

DLR's standalone adjusted funds from operations (AFFO) payout ratio
fell from the mid-80% range to the high-60% range beginning in
2016, enabling the company to retain more than $270 million during
the year and setting it on pace to retain more than $300 million in
2017.

FULL LIST OF RATING ACTIONS

Fitch currently rates Digital as follows:

Digital Realty Trust, Inc.
-- Long-Term Issuer Default Rating (IDR) 'BBB';
-- Preferred stock 'BB+'.

Digital Realty Trust, L.P.
-- Long-Term IDR 'BBB';
-- Unsecured revolving credit facility 'BBB';
-- Senior unsecured term loan 'BBB';

The Rating Outlook is Stable.


DIMORA BRANDS: Moody's Assigns B3 Corporate Family Rating
---------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a B3 Corporate Family Rating
(CFR) to Dimora Brands, Inc. and a B3-PD Probability of Default
Rating. In the same rating action, Moody's assigned a B2 rating to
Dimora's $50 million, first-lien revolver, a B2 to its $255
million, first-lien term loan, and a Caa2 rating to the company's
$65 million, second-lien term loan. The outlook is stable. This is
the first time Moody's has rated Dimora.

Proceeds of this financing will be used to refinance $268 million
of existing bank debt and pay a dividend of about $52 million to
The Jordan Company, L.P., which is the private equity company that
bought Dimora in 2016.

The following assignments were made:

B3 Corporate Family Rating

B3-PD Probability of Default Rating

B2 (LGD3) rating on the proposed $50 million first-lien senior
secured revolving credit facility due 2023

B2 (LGD3) rating on the proposed $255 million first-lien senior
secured term loan due 2024

Caa2 (LGD6) rating on the proposed $65 million second-lien senior
secured term loan due 2025

Stable rating outlook

RATINGS RATIONALE

The B3 CFR reflects Dimora's small size when compared to the
universe of building products and distribution companies and its
pro forma adjusted debt/EBITDA of about 6x, which is near the more
leveraged end of the rating scale for single B-rated distribution
companies.

At the same time, the B3 acknowledges the company's robust EBITDA
margins and that the company is capable of generating positive net
income if it were to choose not to amortize goodwill. In addition,
Moody's notes that building products end markets are strong and
likely to remain so into 2018 and that the company has decent
pricing power for its products, given that they constitute a very
small part of the overall price of the products to which they are
attached.

The stable rating outlook incorporates Moody's expectation that
adjusted debt/EBITDA will remain below 6.25x and that other key
credit metrics will remain supportive of the B3 rating.

The ratings would benefit from a large increase in the company's
size, a supportive posture from the company's PE owners, and a
sustained reduction in debt/EBITDA to below 5.25x.

The ratings would come under pressure from debt/EBITDA that
escalated beyond 6.5x and/or a substantial reduction in EBITDA
margins.

The company's liquidity is supported by frequently positive free
cash flow generation, an undrawn $50 million secured revolver, and
a springing 7x first-lien net debt/EBITDA covenant that is tested
only upon a 40% utilization ($20 million) of the revolver.

The first-lien senior secured revolver and term loan are
collateralized by a first priority interest in substantially all
tangible and intangible assets of Dimora and its guarantors (its
parent and its principal operating subsidiaries). The second-lien
senior secured term loan is collateralized by a second priority
interest in the same assets.

The first-lien revolver and term loan are notched above the CFR
because of the support provided by the company's second-lien term
loan. The latter debt is notched down because it is the junior debt
piece in the company's current capital structure.

Established in 1990 through predecessor companies and headquartered
in Dallas, TX, Dimora designs, manufactures, sources, and
distributes products for cabinets, including functional hardware,
decorative hardware, decorative wood, custom drawer boxes, and
other items, serving customers throughout the United States and
Canada.

Established in 1982 and headquartered in New York City, The Jordan
Company, L.P., which together with management owns Dimora, is a
private equity fund that focuses on middle market industrial
companies.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Distribution &
Supply Chain Services Industry published in December 2015.


DIMORA BRANDS: S&P Assigns 'B' Corp. Credit Rating, Outlook Stable
------------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings assigned its 'B' corporate credit rating to
cabinet hardware producer and distributor Dimora Brands Inc. The
outlook is stable.

S&P said, "We also assigned our 'B' issue-level rating to Dimora's
proposed $305 million senior secured first-lien credit
facilities--consisting of a six-year $50 million revolving credit
facility and a seven-year $255 million first-lien term loan--and
our 'CCC+' issue-level rating to the company's proposed $65 million
eight-year second-lien term loan. The '3' recovery rating on the
senior secured credit facility indicates our expectation for
meaningful (50%-70%; rounded estimate: 55%) recovery to lenders in
the event of a default. The '6' recovery rating on the second-lien
term loan reflects our expectation for negligible (0%-10%; rounded
estimate: 0%) recovery."

The 'B' corporate credit rating and stable outlook on Dimora Brands
Inc. reflect the company's very narrow niche product focus (limited
largely to decorative and functional cabinet hardware, i.e., knobs,
pulls, slides etc.); its very small size; geographic diversity
limited to the U.S.; and participation in a competitive and
cyclical end market driven largely by discretionary and cyclical
kitchen and bath renovations. Partially offsetting these factors
are low price sensitivity to the company's products (its main
product--decorative hardware--represents less than 1% of the cost
of a typical kitchen remodel), a large and diverse customer base,
small average order size, and above-average margins compared to
other building products companies we rate, due to its reliance more
on renovation activity rather than new construction. Although
small, the company has exhibited strong revenue growth over the
past seven years as it has expanded its offerings and captured
market share from competitors. S&P said, "We also expect the
company to exhibit some volatility of earnings in cyclical
downturns, but less so than other building products companies that
are more correlated to new home construction.

S&P said, "The stable outlook on Dimora reflects our expectation
that the company will sustain pro forma debt-to-EBITDA ratio of
more than 5x and FFO to debt of less than 12%, over the next 12
months. The outlook further reflects our belief that Dimora will
maintain adequate liquidity.

"We view a downgrade as relatively unlikely in the next 12 months,
given our favorable outlook for home construction and repair and
remodeling spending. However, we could take such an action under a
scenario in which Dimora saw sales fall by at least 20%. This would
result in leverage exceeding 7x and approaching 8x, whereupon we
could lower the rating. Scenarios in which we think sales could
fall by this amount would be a severe recession or sourcing
difficulties that strained the company inventories.

"Given the company's small size and niche product focus, we view an
upgrade as unlikely unless the company grew significantly in size
and diversified its products and end markets, while reducing
leverage to 4x. Incorporated into the potential for an upgrade
would be our assumption that financial sponsor ownership would be
committed to maintaining leverage at less than 4x with a low risk
of releveraging."

DXP ENTERPRISES: Moody's Assigns B2 CFR & Rates 2023 Term Loan B3
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned first time ratings to DXP
Enterprises, Inc. (DXP), including a B2 Corporate Family Rating
(CFR) and a B3 rating to its proposed term loan due 2023. Moody's
also assigned an SGL-2 Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating. These
ratings are subject to a review of final documentation for the
proposed term loan and revolving credit facility. The outlook is
stable.

"This refinancing will address near-term debt maturities and
support ongoing growth in DXP's business," stated James Wilkins,
Moody's Vice President -- Senior Analyst.

Issuer: DXP Enterprises, Inc.

Assignments:

-- Corporate Family Rating, Assigned B2

-- Probability of Default Rating, Assigned B2-PD

-- Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating, Assigned SGL-2

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

Outlook Actions:

Issuer: DXP Enterprises, Inc.

-- Outlook, Assigned Stable

RATINGS RATIONALE

DXP's B2 CFR is constrained by its high exposure to and reliance on
the North American energy market as well as other cyclical end
markets, modest scale for a distribution company with competitors
having greater resources, single digit operating margins (driven by
its distribution business model) and a history of acquisitions. The
company's revenues declined 36% from 2014 to 2016 due to the
slowdown in the energy industry and industrial activity. The nature
of the recovery in the North American energy industry and demand
for DXP's products and services is uncertain. The company's margins
do benefit from certain value added activities. The rating is
supported by: favorable leverage and interest coverage credit
metrics; the diversity of its customer base and product lines;
broad North American presence; positive free cash flow generation
through cycles (as a result of low capital expenditure
requirements, no common dividend and release of cash from working
capital if revenue declines); steady contractual, fee-based
business in the Supply Chain Services segment; and supplier base.

The proposed senior secured term loan is rated B3, one notch below
the CFR, reflecting the lower priority of its claim relative to the
majority of secured debt in DXP's capital structure. Under a
distressed scenario the collateral available to term loan lenders
likely will not be sufficient to cover the principal amount of the
loan. Accordingly, Moody's believes the B3 rating on the term loan
is more appropriate than the rating suggested by Moody's
Loss-Given-Default (LGD) methodology. DXP's balance sheet debt is
comprised of the $250 million senior secured term loan due 2023,
senior secured ABL revolving credit facility due 2022 and a small
amount ($3 million as of June 30, 2017) of promissory notes. The
term loan and revolver share the collateral with the revolver
having a first priority lien on working capital (eligible accounts
receivable and inventory, ABL Collateral) and second priority lien
on all other assets, including PP&E, and the term loan having a
second priority lien on the ABL Collateral and first priority lien
on all other assets. As a distributor, DXP does not have a
significant amount of PP&E. As of June 30, 2017, DXP had about $160
million and $91 million of accounts receivables and inventory,
respectively, which was about three-quarters of tangible assets.

The SGL-2 Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating reflects the company's
good liquidity following its debt refinancing, supported by Moody's
expectations that it will generate positive free cash flow, a
modest cash balance ($24 million as of June 30, 2017, pro forma for
the debt refinancing) and undrawn ABL revolving credit facility.
DXP can have some seasonality to its cash flows. The proposed $85
million ABL revolving credit facility due 2022 will have one
financial covenant (minimum fixed charge coverage ratio if
availability drops below a certain level) and the proposed term
loan will have a maximum leverage financial covenant. Moody's
expects the company will remain in compliance with the financial
covenants through 2018. The company is required to make principal
repayments totaling one percent per year of the original term loan
principal ($2.5 million per year). DXP has no significant
maturities until the revolver matures in 2022.

The stable outlooks reflects Moody's expectation that DXP will see
a modest recovery in demand in its end markets and improve its
operating margin. The ratings could be upgraded if the company's
revenue continues to recover and its operating margin exceeds 4.5
percent on a sustained basis, while maintaining debt to EBITDA of
less than 3.5x. The ratings could be downgraded if revenues decline
meaningfully, operating margins fall below 2%, free cash flow to
debt is below 2% or liquidity deteriorates.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Distribution &
Supply Chain Services Industry published in December 2015.

DXP Enterprises, Inc. (NASDAQ: DXPE), headquartered in Houston, TX,
is a distributor and service provider to the energy industry and
industrial customers. It distributes maintenance, repair, operating
(MRO) products and equipment, and provides integrated supply and
other services. DXP also assembles rotating equipment packages and
engages in limited pump manufacturing. Revenues for the year ended
December 31, 2016, totaled $962 million.


DXP ENTERPRISES: S&P Assigns 'B' Corp Credit Rating, Outlook Stable
-------------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings assigned its 'B' corporate credit rating to
Houston–based DXP Enterprises Inc. The rating outlook is stable.

S&P said, "At the same time, we assigned our 'B+' issue-level
rating to the company's proposed $250 million term loan due 2023.
The recovery rating is '2', indicating our expectation of
substantial (70%-90%, rounded estimate: 70%) recovery in the event
of a payment default.

"Our rating incorporates DXP's volatile profitability and cash flow
owing to its exposure to cyclical end markets. The company operates
in a fragmented and competitive industry, relying on closely
guarded territories and distribution rights. More than 50% of DXP's
sales are tied to oil and gas end markets, with the balance coming
from various sectors, including the transportation, food and
beverage, mining, and chemical industries. These risks are
partially offset by DXP's leading market position in rotating
equipment, which contributes about 50% of sales, and customized
products and integrated service solutions, which stabilize earnings
and cash flow.

"The stable outlook is based on our expectation that DXP's credit
measures will remain in the range of 3x-4x over the next 12 months.
This is predicated on improving oil and gas end markets, which
should contribute to improved EBITDA levels. We also expect the
company to resolve its internal control issues without repeated
findings.

"We could raise the rating if DXP sustained leverage of about 3x,
which we believe would be supported by improved EBITDA of about
$100 million and would boost cash flow and strengthen liquidity
measures. We believe that such a scenario would indicate stronger,
more stable end market demand that improves our view of DXP's
competitive position and profitability.

"We could lower the rating if DXP's EBITDA interest coverage
dropped below 1.5x. This could coincide with weaker liquidity
because of an unexpected decline in the industrial and oil and gas
end markets. The company's counter-cyclical working capital could
support cash flow in such a downside scenario, but protracted
earnings weakness could indicate a weakened competitive position
owing to a sharp decline in demand."

default rating and B2 to its first lien credit facilities. The
rating outlook is stable.

The proceeds from i) a $250 million first lien term loan, ii) $100
million unsecured term loan (unrated) and iii) $503.7 million of
equity will be used to i) acquire Certara Holdco, Inc. ("Certara")
in a sponsor to sponsor sale between private equity groups Arsenal
Capital Partners (current owner) and EQT, ii) put $3 million of
cash to the balance sheet, and iii) pay fees and expenses. There
will also be a new $20 million first lien revolving credit
facility, which is expected to be undrawn at closing.

Moody's highlights that EQT Avatar is the initial borrower for the
first lien credit facilities. However, shortly after the
transaction closes Certara and Certara USA, Inc. will become
co-borrowers of the first lien debt. EQT Avatar will then no longer
be a borrower, but will be a guarantor of the first lien debt.
Additionally, the unsecured term loan borrower will be EQT Avatar
TopCo, Inc., a non-guarantor entity above EQT Avatar in the
organization.

RATINGS RATIONALE

The B3 Corporate Family Rating is constrained by Certara's high
starting pro forma leverage of about 7.25x (Moody's adjusted) at
LTM March 2017, low cash balances through December 2018, small
scale and lack of diversification among end markets. The ratings
are supported by Certara's leading position in the niche drug
development biosimulation software and regulatory science
publication management software markets, strong revenue growth
prospects (double digits per annum) and good cash flow generating
capabilities. Also, high barriers to entry with limited competition
in their primary markets, strong renewal rates (about 90%), highly
visible recurring revenues and a well-diversified customer base (no
one customers above 10%) supports its ratings. Finally, the company
has a unique competitive advantage through its employee base (which
about a third are PhD scientists), its ownership of large
proprietary data sets and the wide spread adoption by the US Food
and Drug Administration ("FDA") of its products.

The debt instrument ratings are determined in conjunction with
Moody's Loss Given Default Methodology and reflect average recovery
across the capital structure. The B2 ratings on the first lien debt
are notched up from the corporate family rating reflecting their
senior position in the capital structure, given the loss cushion
provided by the unsecured term loan (unrated).

While the initial cash position is small the liquidity profile is
deemed adequate based on an estimated closing cash balance of $3
million and a $20 million undrawn revolver. Moody's expects free
cash flow to debt to approach the low 4% in the first 18 months
post close. However, cash balances are expected to remain low
through December 2018 due to expected one-time costs,
performance-contingent earn out payments (which will also likely
cause the revolver to be partially drawn during this period,
particularly in Q4 2017) and mandatory amortization. Liquidity may
become a greater concern through December 2018 if the company
pursues an acquisition strategy such that dependence on its
revolver is continued and cash balances remain light. Moody's
anticipates good cushion under the springing financial covenant
applicable to the revolver. The first lien term loan and unsecured
term loan do not have financial covenants. The first lien term loan
has 1% required amortization, with a bullet due at maturity. The
unsecured term loan has no required annual amortization, with a
bullet due at maturity.

The ratings outlook is stable reflecting Moody's expectations that
Certara will delever towards 6x and have strong revenue growth
(double digit) over the next 12-18 months.

The ratings could be upgraded if leverage is sustained under 6x and
free cash flow to debt is sustained in the mid-single digits.

The ratings could face downward pressure if liquidity stresses
force the company to rely significantly on the revolver, if Moody's
expects free cash flow will approach breakeven, or if leverage
remains above 7.5x.

The following ratings were assigned:

Issuer: EQT Avatar Holdings, Inc.

  Corporate Family Rating - B3

  Probability of Default Rating - B3-PD

  First lien revolving credit facility - B2 (LGD3)

  First lien term loan credit facility - B2 (LGD3)

Outlook -- Stable

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Software
Industry published in December 2015.

Certara Holdco, Inc. ("Certara") is a leading provider of drug
development simulation software and regulatory science publication
software and services. The company had revenues of about $140
million in the twelve month period ending March 31, 2017 (pro forma
for acquisitions). Certara is owned (pro forma) by private equity
group EQT (majority), Arsenal Capital Partners and Certara's
management.

EW SCRIPPS: Moody's Puts Ba2 CFR on Review for Downgrade
--------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service placed Scripps (E.W.) Company (THE) Ba2
Corporate Family Rating (CFR) on Review for Downgrade (RUR), as
well as Ba2-PD Probability of Default (PD), the Baa2 Senior Secured
Bank Credit Facility and Ba2 Senior Unsecured notes. Moody's
reviews will focus on the pro forma projections for the combined
company, the strategic logic of the acquisition, the company's
financial policies, its growth strategy and commitment to de lever,
final capital structure, sources of alternate liquidity to repay
debt, and the appropriate rating triggers. The conclusion of review
will also be contingent on a high probability of closing.

These rating actions follow Scripp's announcement that it plans to
acquire the assets of Katz broadcast networks for approximately
$292 million, gaining full ownership and control after combining
its existing 5% minority investment. The transaction price implies
a purchase multiple of approximately 8x 2018 forecasted segment
profit, net of tax benefits created by the stepped up basis in the
assets. The transaction will be financed with cash, funded with
$250 million in new debt and $50 in cash on hand. Katz will
contribute approximately $180 million to revenue, and $30 million
to profit in 2018. The deal is expected to close October 2, subject
to Hart-Scott-Rodino clearance and customary closing conditions.

On Review for Downgrade:

Issuer: Scripps (E.W.) Company (The)

-- Probability of Default Rating, Placed on Review for Downgrade,

    currently Ba2-PD

-- Corporate Family Rating, Placed on Review for Downgrade,
    currently Ba2

-- Senior Secured Bank Credit Facility, Placed on Review for
    Downgrade, currently Baa2 (LGD 1)

-- Senior Unsecured Regular Bond/Debenture, Placed on Review for
    Downgrade, currently Ba2 (LGD 4)

Assignments:

-- Senior Secured Bank Credit Facility, Assigned Baa2 (LGD 1)

Outlook Actions:

-- Outlook, Changed To Rating Under Review From Stable

RATINGS RATIONALE

The announced transaction adds considerable leverage, weakly
positioning Scripps in the rating category. Moody's projects pro
forma leverage at close will be near 4.8x (Moody's adjusted Debt/2
year average EBITDA), well above Moody's 3.75x rating tolerance.
Based on the company's forward plan, Moody's expects adjusted
leverage to fall back to about 4.0x by the end of 2019 --
sustaining leverage above Moody's trigger for at least 2 years. In
addition to the heightened leverage, Moody's believes the acquired
assets are relatively weaker than Scripp's existing broadcast
assets with lower margins. Also, despite the top-line growth
opportunities, there is some execution risk with a dependence on
successfully executing a shift in the revenue model and extending
its distribution beyond its current partners. Moody's also question
the company's commitment to de lever within Moody's tolerances if
they continue to allocate excess cash flow to shareholders while
they remain well above Moody's leverage tolerance.

E.W. Scripps (Scripps or the Company) Ba2 (RUR) CFR is supported by
very high-margin retransmission fees which now represent over 25%
of the revenue mix, and growing faster than 20% annually. Political
revenues also provide significant lift to revenues and EBITDA in
even years, during the election cycle. The company's rating also
benefits from its closely held ownership (family members of E.W.
Scripps) which has historically maintained balanced financial
policies that result in stable and predictable credit metrics and
good liquidity. This has provided cushion during down years and in
good years, the flexibility to invest in core programming as well
as new digital content and strategies.

The credit rating is constrained by exposure to cyclical ad demand,
competitive pressure with ad demand moving to digital and mobile
platforms, and lower-rated TV rankings spread across a range of
market sizes. Combined, these dynamics have led to weak core ad
revenue generated by 33 owned and operated broadcast stations,
reaching 18% of US households. Despite strong local news
programming which ranks #1 or #2 in some markets, and having close
to 85% of its audience, and over 50% of its stations and markets
located in the top 50 DMA's, there is growing pressure on the core
business as the media ecosystem is being disrupted by new and
existing streaming media service providers who are taking or
threatening to take share away from the traditional pay TV
distribution model. Scripps ownership in low-margin radio stations,
investment in digital properties which are producing operating
losses, and below-market rate retransmission contracts are also a
burden.

Headquartered in Cincinnati, OH and founded in 1878, The E.W.
Scripps Company is one of the largest pure-play television
broadcasters based on US household coverage (18%). Broadcasting
operations consist of 33 television stations (15 ABC affiliates, 5
NBC, 2 FOX, and 2 CBS among other networks) in 24 markets, 34 radio
stations (28 FM and 6 AM; roughly 10% of revenue) in eight markets,
television show productions, and the Scripps Washington Bureau in
Washington, D.C. The company's operations also include local and
national digital journalism and information businesses, such as
podcast provider Midroll Media and over-the-top news service Newsy.
The company is publicly traded with the Scripps family controlling
effectively all voting rights (93%) and an estimated 28% economic
interest with remaining shares being widely held. The company
reported $943 million in revenue in 2016, and $211 million through
the first quarter of 2017.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Media Industry
published in June 2017.


EZRA HOLDINGS: Court Moves Exclusive Plan Filing Period to Nov. 13
------------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Robert D. Drain of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of New York issued an order extending the
exclusive periods during which only Ezra Holdings Limited and its
affiliated-debtors may file a Chapter 11 plan to November 13, 2017,
and solicit acceptances of such plan to January 12, 2018.

The Troubled Company Reporter has previously reported that the
Debtors asked the Court for an extension of their exclusive periods
alleging that development of a Chapter 11 plan requires addressing
the Debtors' complex capital structure and the need to review and
understand which of the Debtors and their respective affiliates may
add value to an exit strategy.  

The Debtors claimed that although they have met with potential
lenders and investors, but to date none of those discussions
resulted in a definitive offer. In addition, the Debtors claimed
that given the challenges facing the oil and gas industry in
Singapore as well as the Debtors' business as a service provider
for other entities, it will require more time while this process
continues.

Accordingly, the Debtors were mindful of the time required to
continue to evaluate their assets, explore potential interest from
investors, lenders and even acquirers, as well as to conduct an
analysis of claims filed.

Ezra Holdings' primary assets relate to its interests in its
various operating business divisions, each of which has its own
complicated corporate and capital structures; the other Debtors'
assets relate primarily to supporting these affiliates and, as
such, are intimately tied to affiliates. The Debtors said although
they have already started the process of evaluating all of these
components to maximize value for their various stakeholders, but
such an endeavor has been inherently complex and time-consuming.
As such, the Debtors required sufficient time to consider plan
structure alternatives and the financial implications of each so
that the resulting plan serves the best interests of the Debtors
and their creditors.

Through prudent business decisions and cash management, the Debtors
believed that they will have sufficient resources to meet their
required post-petition payment obligations and manage their
businesses effectively through the effective date of a plan.

                        About Ezra Holdings

Ezra Holdings and two affiliates -- Ezra Marine Services Pte. Ltd.
and EMAS IT Solutions Pte Ltd -- filed voluntary Chapter 11
bankruptcy petitions (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Lead Case No. 17-22405) on
March 18, 2017, before the Honorable Robert D. Drain.

Lawyers at Saul Ewing, led by Sharon L. Levine, Esq., serve as the
Debtors' Chapter 11 counsel.  The Debtors tapped as general
Singapore counsel Drew & Napier LLC; and claims and noticing agent,
Prime Clerk LLC.

Ezra Holdings estimated $500 million to $1 billion in assets and
$100 million to $500 million in liabilities.  The petitions were
signed by Tan Cher Liang, director.

2017.  ECS' wholly-owned subsidiary, EMAS-AMC AS, has also been
placed under members' voluntary liquidation in Norway.  

Ezra guaranteed substantial charter hire liabilities of the ECS
Group, as well as certain loans owed by the ECS Group to financial
institutions, Ezra faces potentially significant contingent
liability if the creditors call on the guarantees.

Ezra received statutory demands from Svenska Handelsbanken AB
(Publ), Singapore Branch and Forland Subsea AS on Jan. 24, 2017,
and Feb. 6, 2017, respectively.  These statutory demands have since
expired under Singapore law and these two creditors may commence
winding up applications against Ezra.  Ezra also received a
statutory demand from VT Halter Marine, Inc. on March 9, 2017.


FANNIE MAE: Reports Net Income of $3.2 Billion in Second Quarter
----------------------------------------------------------------
Fannie Mae filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission its
quarterly report on Form 10-Q disclosing net income of $3.20
billion on $27.39 billion of total interest income for the three
months ended June 30, 2017, compared to net income of $2.94 billion
on $26.60 billion of total interest income for the three months
ended June 30, 2016.  The increase in net income was due primarily
to an increase in credit-related income and a shift to investment
gains in the second quarter from investment losses in the first
quarter, partially offset by higher fair value losses on the
Company's risk management derivatives.

For the six months ended June 30, 2017, the Company reported net
income of $5.97 billion on $54.77 billion of total interest income
compared to net income of $4.08 billion on $53.93 billion of total
interest income for the same period during the prior year.

The Company's balance sheet as of June 30, 2017, showed $3.30
trillion in total assets, $3.30 trillion in total liabilities and
$3.71 billion in total stockholders' equity.

In recent periods, an increasing portion of Fannie Mae's net
interest income has been derived from guaranty fees rather than
from the Company's retained mortgage portfolio assets.  This shift
has been driven by both the guaranty fee increases the company
implemented in 2012 and the reduction of the Company's retained
mortgage portfolio.  More than 75 percent of the Company's net
interest income in the first half of 2017 was derived from its
guaranty business.  The Company expects that guaranty fees will
continue to account for an increasing portion of its net interest
income.

"Our results reflect the strength of our business model and the
momentum of our strategy," said Timothy J. Mayopoulos, president
and chief executive officer.  "We are focused on helping lenders
save time and money, making the mortgage process easier, and
expanding access to credit in ways that make sense.  We will
continue to deliver innovative solutions that help our customers
succeed, improve the mortgage process, and create safe and
sustainable opportunities for families to own or rent a home."

Fannie Mae expects to remain profitable on an annual basis for the
foreseeable future; however, certain factors, such as changes in
interest rates or home prices, could result in significant
volatility in the Company's financial results from quarter to
quarter or year to year.  Fannie Mae's future financial results
also will be affected by a number of other factors, including: the
Company's guaranty fee rates; the volume of single-family mortgage
originations in the future; the size, composition, and quality of
its retained mortgage portfolio and guaranty book of business; and
economic and housing market conditions.  Although Fannie Mae
expects to remain profitable on an annual basis for the foreseeable
future, due to the Company's limited and declining capital reserves
(which decrease to zero in 2018) and the potential for significant
volatility in its financial results, the company could experience a
net worth deficit in a future quarter. If Fannie Mae experiences a
net worth deficit in a future quarter, the company will be required
to draw additional funds from Treasury under the senior preferred
stock purchase agreement to avoid being placed into receivership.

Fannie Mae has operated under the conservatorship of FHFA since
Sept. 6, 2008.  Treasury has made a commitment under a senior
preferred stock purchase agreement to provide funding to Fannie Mae
under certain circumstances if the company has a net worth deficit.
Pursuant to this agreement and the senior preferred stock the
company issued to Treasury in 2008, the Director of FHFA has
declared and directed Fannie Mae to pay dividends to Treasury on a
quarterly basis since the company entered into conservatorship in
2008.

Fannie Mae provided approximately $135 billion in liquidity to the
mortgage market in the second quarter of 2017, through its
purchases of loans and guarantees of loans and securities, which
resulted in:

  -- Approximately 316,000 home purchases

  -- Approximately 222,000 mortgage refinancings

  -- Approximately 162,000 units of multifamily housing financed

             About Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac

Federal National Mortgage Association (OTCQB: FNMA), commonly
known as Fannie Mae -- http://www.FannieMae.com/-- is a
government-sponsored enterprise (GSE) that was chartered by U.S.
Congress in 1938 to support liquidity, stability and affordability
in the secondary mortgage market, where existing mortgage-related
assets are purchased and sold.

A brother organization of Fannie Mae is the Federal Home Loan
Mortgage Corporation (FHLMC), better known as Freddie Mac.
Freddie Mac (OTCBB: FMCC) -- http://www.FreddieMac.com/-- was
established by Congress in 1970 to provide liquidity, stability and
affordability to the nation's residential mortgage markets.
Freddie Mac supports communities across the nation by providing
mortgage capital to lenders.

During the time of the subprime mortgage crisis, on Sept. 6, 2008,
Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were placed into conservatorship by the
U.S. Treasury.  The Treasury committed to invest up to $200
billion in preferred stock and extend credit through 2009 to keep
the GSEs solvent and operating.  Both GSEs are still operating
under the conservatorship of the Federal Housing Finance Agency
(FHFA).

In exchange for future support and capital investments of up to
$100 billion in each GSE, each GSE agreed to issue to the Treasury
(i) $1 billion of senior preferred stock, with a 10% coupon,
without cost to the Treasury and (ii) common stock warrants
representing an ownership stake of 79.9%, at an exercise price of
one-thousandth of a U.S. cent ($0.00001) per share, and with a
warrant duration of 20 years.


FAUSER OIL: Wants Plan Filing Deadline Moved to November 30
-----------------------------------------------------------
Fauser Oil Co., Inc. and its affiliates request the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the Northern District of Iowa to extend by approximately
three months to:

    -- November 30, 2017, the deadline to file a chapter 11 plan,
and

    -- January 29, 2017, the deadline to solicit acceptances of
such plan.

Unless the Court extends the deadline for filing such a plan, the
exclusive period in which the Debtors are the only parties
authorized to file a plan will expire on August 22, 2017, and the
deadline to obtain acceptance of such filed plan will expire on
October 21.

The Debtors maintain that such an extension will provide them
additional time to quantify all allowed claims, to complete the
sale process, and to provide the means to pay all of their
creditors in full under its own natural timeline.

The Debtors tell the Court that when the U.S. Bank National
Association abruptly terminated a long-term lending relationship
with Debtors.  The Debtors contend that after the U.S. Bank
notified them on March 24, 2017 that it would not continue to
extend credit, the Debtors had no choice but to immediately cease
operating the wholesale fuel business of Fauser Oil and to quickly
sell what remained of the wholesale business of Dawson Oil
Company.

Moreover, the Debtors relate that the Iowa Department of Revenue
has levied their bank accounts on April 13, 2017 for fuel taxes
that accrued in February 2017, even though they had never been past
due on their taxes, and did so without providing the requisite
statutory notices. This lien on the Debtors' cash impaired their
ability to access their remaining working capital, and forced them
to file this Case.

The Debtors also relate that in late June, Paul Fauser decided to
pursue a sale of the assets of two of the Debtors -- some of the
assets of Fauser Oil and all of the assets of Ron's L.P. Gas
Service -- as the basis for the Plan for dealing with the debt of
those two companies. The Debtors submit that all of their primary
debts reside with Fauser Oil, with the remaining Debtors being
obligated in immaterial amounts to third-party creditors and
materially on guarantees of the debts of Fauser Oil. Accordingly,
the Debtors allege that resolution of Fauser Oil's obligations
through a sale of its assets, and the assets of Ron's, will
facilitate the plans for the other entities to deal with whatever
obligations might be left.

While the sale process is well underway, but the Debtors claim that
it has not yet resulted in a signed asset purchase agreement. The
Debtors contend that its management, advisors and legal counsel are
in serious negotiations on an asset purchase agreement with one
buyer, and have been in contact with about 15 other potential
buyers for the same assets.

Based on the progress made to date on a sale document, the Debtors
believe it is likely that they will not need the full extension to
November 30, 2017, to file a plan, but given the nature of the
business (petroleum and petroleum-related products), it is possible
that even a further extension would be needed.

Additionally, the Debtors believe that if the sale proceeds on the
terms currently negotiated, there is a very good possibility that
all of the creditors in these cases will be paid in full from sale
proceeds before the extended Exclusivity Period expires. However,
the Debtors allege that the claims bar date matured only earlier
this week, and the Debtors have not had the opportunity to fully
analyze all of the claims that were filed prior to the bar date. As
such, the Debtors assert that they need time to review claims see
the sale process to completion.

GARDEN FRESH: Has Until October 30 to File Plan of Reorganization
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Christopher S. Sontchi of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Delaware extended the exclusive periods within which
only Fresh-G Restaurant Intermediate Holding, LLC (f/k/a Garden
Fresh Restaurant Intermediate Holding, LLC) and its affiliated
Debtors may file a chapter 11 plan and solicit acceptances to the
plan through October 30, 2017 and December 27, 2017, respectively.


The Troubled Company Reporter has previously reported that the
Debtors asked the Court to extend their exclusivity periods,
telling the Court that termination of the Exclusive Periods would
adversely impact their efforts to preserve and maximize the value
of these estates and the progress of these Chapter 11 cases.

The Debtors recounted that since their last requested extension,
they have expended considerable effort continuing to address
various items related to the consummation of the sale of
substantially all of the Debtors' assets.  In particular, the
Debtors said that they have assisted the Purchaser with the
assumption and assignment of executory contracts and unexpired
leases, and rejected those executory contracts and leases that the
purchaser, GFRC Promotions LLC, does not wish assumed and assigned
and which provide no further economic benefit to the Debtors.  

Due to the scope of the Debtors' prepetition operations, the
Debtors claimed that attending to these contract and lease issues
has proven to be a significant task.  In addition, the Debtors
alleged that they were continuing to assist the Purchaser with its
reconciliation of those claims arising under Section 503(b)(9) of
the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. However, the Debtors' current Exclusive
Periods simply have not afforded the Debtors with sufficient time
to address these issues, as well as other issues, that have arisen
in connection with the consummation of the Sale, while
simultaneously planning the best manner in which to wrap-up these
cases.  

The Debtors contended that they have made significant and material
progress in these Chapter 11 cases.  In particular, the Debtors
conducted a thorough marketing process, successfully obtained
approval of the Sale, and closed the Sale.  The Debtors have been
and will be continuing to work with the Purchaser to assume and
assign to the Purchaser certain executory contracts and unexpired
leases related to the Purchased Assets, and reconcile the Sec.
503(b)(9) Claims.  

The Debtors assured the Court that because the Debtors' undisputed
post-petition obligations continue to be paid, the requested
extension of the Exclusive Periods will not prejudice the
legitimate interests of post-petition creditors.

GATOR EQUIPMENT: Morea Buying Houma Property for $720K
------------------------------------------------------
Gator Equipment Rentals of Iberia, LLC, and affiliates, ask the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of Louisiana to
authorize the sale of real property located at 603 Apache, Houma,
Terrebonne Parish, Louisiana, also known as Lot 10 Block 12, Addn
3, Sugar Mill Point Estates, to Mark Morea for $720,000.

On Jan. 13, 2017, Gator Equipment filed their Schedules indicating
an ownership interest in Apache Property, which is located on
Apache Road in Houma, Louisiana.  The Debtors acquired the property
from Lovencie John Gambarella and Joey Don Pierce in his capacity
as the duly appointed Independent Administrator for the Succession
of Betty Rae Gambarella, Probate No. 22901, Div. E, 32nd JDC, via
that Sale Subject to Mortgage dated Nov. 22, 2017, recorded in the
Parish of Terrebonne as File Number 1521595, Conveyance Book 2482,
Page 565. Lovencie John Gambarella and Joey Pierce are both
insiders of the Debtor.

On May 12, 2017, the Court entered an order approving the
employment of Barbara Womack-Lirette of Proprie'te' Shoppe Real
Estate, LLC to market and sell the Apache Property.  The Realtor is
entitled to a 3% commission on the sale price.  

After marketing, the Debtors have received an offer to purchase the
Apache Property from the Purchaser for the purchase price of
$720,000 according the terms and conditions set forth in the
Purchase Agreement.  The PA contains usual and customary terms and
conditions normally contained in a residential property purchase.
It provides for a very straightforward sale process.  The Purchaser
has deposited $2,500 in cash with Realtor as a deposit.  He will
pay $720,000 cash at closing (including application of the
deposit).  

The Closing will occur as soon as reasonably practical.  The PA
does not provide for any further investigation or other due
diligence for the Buyer.  The only condition to closing is the
approval by the Court.  The Buyer is not entitled to any breakup or
similar fee if it is ultimately not the successful purchaser of the
Apache Property.  The Debtors propose to sell the Apache Property
"as is, where is" without warranties, and free and clear of Liens
and Claims.

Sheriff's Office for non-payment of 2016 property taxes by Lovencie

fees, dated 6/28/2017, filed 6/28/2017 in MOB 2929, Entry No.
1536963.

To satisfy the Liens and Claims described, the Debtors ask approval
on distributing the proceeds of the sale as follows: (i) first,
payment of all necessary costs of the sale paid by sellers at
closing, including cancellation charges, recordation charges, real
estate taxes and other closing costs attributable to the estate.
Debtors estimate such costs to be $250; (ii) second, $28,800 to
Realtor for 3% commission; (iii) third, the remainder to Regions
Bank up to the amount of its outstanding allowed claim; and (iv)
fourth, the remainder (if any) to be held in escrow pending further
order of the Court.  The Debtors do not anticipate any remainder
under the last section.

The Debtors' decision to sell the Apache Property to the Purchaser
is based on its sound business judgment.  The Apache Property is a
significant asset of their estates, and is not necessary for
ongoing business operations.  Its sale will help expedite payment
to the holders of allowed claims.  Accordingly, the Debtors ask the
Court to approve the relief requested.

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

GRACIOUS HOME: Plan Filing Exclusivity Extended Until Sept. 11
--------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Mary Kay Vyskocil of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District Court of New York issued a second order extending
the exclusive period in which Gracious Home LLC and its
affiliated-debtors may file a chapter 11 plan through September 11,
2017, and their exclusive period to solicit acceptances for their
chapter 11 plan through November 10.

The Troubled Company Reporter has previously reported that the
Debtors sought further extension of their exclusive periods in
order to negotiate the terms of a confirmable plan with the
creditors' committee and their other constituencies.

The Debtors alleged that they have used the last 150 days to
accomplish various objectives through this Chapter 11 process.
First, as demonstrated in the Debtors' first motion to extend the
Exclusive Periods, the Debtors needed to essentially restart their
business upon filing their Chapter 11 petitions.  As part of that
process, the Debtors consolidated into a single location.  The
Debtors were able to accomplish the foregoing by obtaining debtor
in possession financing to re-finance existing indebtedness with an
existing creditor.

While effecting a restart of the Debtors business, the Debtors and
their professionals were also actively engaged in an extensive
marketing campaign for a sale of the Debtors assets or other
potential investment/acquisition structure. This process included
solicitation of interest from approximately 100 parties and
entering into non-disclosure agreements with 30 parties.
Ultimately, after a successful marketing campaign, the Debtors
entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement with the Purchaser for the
sale of the Debtors' assets.  The Debtors said that one of their
main focus during the past 150 days was to ensure that this process
occurred while the Debtors still had enough liquidity to continue
their operations.

The Debtors claimed that theses Chapter 11 cases involve
approximately 1,500 creditors and parties-in-interest. Accordingly,
the Debtors said that the complexity of formulating and negotiating
a viable plan that accommodates the economic interests of each
creditor necessitates additional time to permit the debtors to
continue discussions with the varied creditor groups. In light of
the sale of their assets, the Debtors claimed that additional time
would be necessary to form a viable liquidating plan.

GREENSTAR HOSPITALITY: U.S. Trustee Unable to Appoint Committee
---------------------------------------------------------------
An official committee of unsecured creditors has not yet been
appointed in the Chapter 11 case of Greenstar Hospitality LLC as of
August 2, according to a court docket.

Greenstar Hospitality LLC owns and operates a business known as the
Cabana Motel located at 665 E. Windsor Street, Othello Washington.

Greenstar Hospitality filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection
(Bankr. W.D. Wash. Case No. 17-12815) on June 22, 2017, estimating
its assets and liabilities at between $1 million and $10 million.
The petition was signed by Ahmed Fataftah, managing member.

Judge Timothy W. Dore presides over the case.  Lamont S. Bossard,
Jr., Esq., at Iwama Law Firm, serves as the Debtor's bankruptcy

GUP'S HILL PLANTATION: Sale of Edgefield Property for $790K Denied
------------------------------------------------------------------
Judge David R. Duncan of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District
of South Carolina denied Gup's Hill Plantation, LLC's sale of The
Edgefield Inn, located at 702 Augusta Road, Edgefield, South
Carolina, to Mahesh Patel for $790,000.

The United States Trustee filed a response to the Motion to Sell on
July 18, 2017.  Apex Bank filed a response to the Motion to Sell on
July 20, 2017.

A hearing was held on Aug. 1, 2017.  At the conclusion of the
hearing the Court denied the Motion to Sell.  The Motion to Sell
asks authority to sell the Property free and clear of all liens.  

Apex is the owner of the first mortgage lien on the Edgefield Inn.
It objected on the grounds that none of the scenarios in Section
363(f)(1)-(5) of the Bankruptcy Code are satisfied.  The aggregate
value of all liens on the Edgefield exceeds the proposed purchase
price of $790,000.  Therefore, Section 363(f)(3) is not met.  Apex
further contends that its lien is not in dispute, so Section
363(f)(4) cannot be met.

The Debtor argues the aggregate amount of liens on the Edgefield
Inn is less than the proposed purchase price and a bona fide
dispute exists as to Apex's interest, because Apex improperly
applied adequate protection payments.  However, even applying the
legal authority regarding the proper application of adequate
protection payments in the view most favorable to the Debtor, the
proposed sale price is still less than the aggregate value of all
liens on the Property.

Apex has not consented to the Motion to Sell.  Therefore, grounds
to sell the property do not exist under Section 363.  Accordingly,
the Court denied the Debtor's Motion to Sell.

                        About Gup's Hill

Gup's Hill Plantation, LLC, owns a hotel called the Edgefield Inn,
commercial and residential real estate properties, and timberland

deadline for the Debtors to file their plan is August 28.

The Debtors contend that cause exists to grant an extension of the
Exclusive Periods and the Plan Filing Deadline, among others:

     (a) The Debtors are making progress towards the stabilization
of their income, as is necessary for the development of their
financial projections and their funding of the plan.

     (b) The Debtors are exploring options for the funding of a
plan which would enable them to accelerate payment in comparison
with a plan which is wholly dependent upon the Debtors' earnings.

     (c) Extending the deadlines will give the Debtors sufficient
time to try and negotiate a consensual plan with the Debtors'
secured lenders (including but not limited to De Lage Landen
Financial Services, Inc., Old National Bank, CP Federal Credit
Union, and People's United Equipment Finance Corp.), the US Dept.
of Treasury and other creditors.

     (d) HardRock is engaged in litigation with Rohl Networks LP,
as such, extending the deadlines will give the Debtors and Rohl
ample time to try and negotiate a global resolution.

Accordingly, the Debtors believe that extending the deadlines will
provide them ample time to better determine the best means to
reorganize or restructure their operations.

HARKEY OPERATING: Exclusivity Periods Extended Through October 5
----------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Mike K. Nakagawa of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Nevada issued an order extending Harkey Operating
Trust's exclusivity period to October 5, 2017.

The Troubled Company Reporter has previously reported that the
Debtor asked the Court for a 90-day exclusivity period extension,
telling the Court that its newly retained counsel needs time to
familiarize himself with the case.

                About Harkey Operating Trust

Harkey Operating Trust sought protection under Chapter 11 of the
Bankruptcy Code (Bankr. D. Minn. Case No. 17-40660) on March 9,
2017. The petition was signed by Michael E. Harkey, co-trustee.

The case is assigned to Judge Kathleen H. Sanberg.  The Debtor
hired Wendy Alison Nora, Esq., at Access Legal Services, as
bankruptcy counsel. It later engaged the Law Office of David A.
Riggi, as new counsel.  The Law Office of Wayne M. Pressel, Chtd.
serves as special counsel.

At the time of the filing, the Debtor estimated its assets at $10
million to $50 million and debts at $1 million to $10 million.


HAROLD ROSBOTTOM: Condominium Part of Bankruptcy Estate
-------------------------------------------------------
The bankruptcy court granted summary judgment in favor of the
bankruptcy trustee, finding Harold Rosbottom's condominium in
Dallas was part of his bankruptcy estate.  The district court
disagreed and reversed the grant of summary judgment.  The U.S.
Court of Appeals, Fifth Circuit, agrees with the bankruptcy court,
and thus reverses the district court's decision.

During their marriage, Debtor Harold L. Rosbottom, Jr., and his
then-wife Leslie B. Fox resided with their two children in a home
in Shreveport, Louisiana.  At the time, Rosbottom was a
businessman, and he and Fox owned the home as community property.

In 2005, Fox filed for divorce in Dallas, Texas, where she and
Rosbottom had moved. Rosbottom later purchased a condominium at The
Vendome in Dallas for $1,900,000. Rosbottom used his portion of the
sale proceeds from the residence to finance his purchase of the
Vendome condominium. Rosbottom later transferred title to the
condominium to the Rosbottom Trust. Fox also used her share of the
sale proceeds to purchase a residence in Dallas.

Rosbottom filed for bankruptcy in 2009. The bankruptcy court
appointed Gerald Schiff as trustee after it noticed irregularities
in Rosbottom's bankruptcy filings. Rosbottom was later convicted of
conspiring to commit bankruptcy fraud, illegally transferring and
concealing assets, and falsifying an oath. Rosbottom is now
incarcerated. After the bankruptcy court confirmed the Chapter 11
reorganization plan, Schiff and Fox sought "a declaratory judgment
that [the] condominium in Dallas belonged to the bankruptcy estate,
rather than a trust, because the transactions purportedly creating
the trust violated Louisiana community property law, thereby
depriving them of any effect."

Until Schiff and Fox filed their adversary action, the Vendome
condominium was not treated as a part of Rosbottom's bankruptcy
estate because the Rosbottom Trust ostensibly had title. Schiff and
Fox argued, though, that the Vendome property was a part of the
Rosbottom-Fox community and not a part of the trust.

They further argued that, because Texas is a community-property
state, the purchase of the Vendome condominium with the proceeds of
the sale of the residence "amounted to nothing more than the
reshuffling of community assets and liabilities[.]" The bankruptcy
court agreed, holding the Rosbottom Trust never existed and the
Vendome condominium was part of Rosbottom's bankruptcy estate.

On appeal, the district court reversed the grant of summary
judgment. It concluded that Rosbottom and Fox had effectively made
a "single donation" of their former residence, an act which did not
violate Article 2337's prohibition against one spouse alienating
community property. It found that both Rosbottom and Fox consented
to the donations, and their post-donation conduct manifested an
intent to convey their entire interest in the Shreveport residence.
Thus, the trusts held the proceeds of the sale until Rosbottom
purchased the Vendome condominium. Schiff filed for
reconsideration, which the district court denied.

As he argued before the bankruptcy and district courts, Rosbottom
now claims that the Vendome condominium was purchased with assets
that were held in a trust and were not part of his bankruptcy
estate. Schiff and Fox argue the trusts never existed, so the
Vendome condominium was purchased with community assets. The issues
are ones of Louisiana law concerning conveyances of community
property.

Unlike the parties in Fargerson v. Fargerson, Rosbottom and Fox
never executed an agreement designed to establish their residence
as separate property, nor did they obtain partition by judicial
action. Instead, each executed an instrument purporting to donate
their undivided interests in the property, which is exactly what
Article 2337 prohibits by its plain language. Describing the
interests as "undivided" suggests that Rosbottom and Fox intended
to continue their community interests in the property despite the
involvement of their respective trusts. Further, no evidence
suggests that Rosbottom and Fox "remained separate in property"
after the execution of the 1999 trust instruments. The
circumstances presented support that Rosbottom and Fox improperly
donated an undivided interest to a third party in violation of
Article 2337.

The Court found no Louisiana caselaw to support Rosbottom's
interpretation of Article 2337. The plain statutory language
prohibits the conveyances Rosbottom and Fox made. Parties are not
free to contract in violation of law.

Because it violated Article 2337, the 1999 transaction is an
absolute nullity. Title to the Shreveport residence was thus never
transferred, making the Vendome condominium part of Rosbottom's
bankruptcy estate.

H. SCHIFF, Appellant, No. 16-31108 (5th Cir.).

downgraded the Corporate Family Rating of Hovnanian Enterprises to
'Caa2' and Probability of Default Rating to 'Caa2-PD'.  The
downgrade of the Corporate Family Rating reflects Moody's
expectation that Hovnanian will need to dispose of assets and seek
alternative financing methods in order to meet its upcoming debt
maturity wall.

The TCR reported on July 13, 2017, that S&P Global Ratings affirmed
its 'CCC+' corporate credit rating on Hovnanian Enterprises Inc.
The rating outlook is negative.  The negative outlook reflects the
potential for a downgrade over the next 12-18 months if it appears
Hovnanian will experience difficulty or delays raising capital
through land banking arrangements, joint ventures, or other
transactions in amounts sufficient to meet upcoming debt
maturities.

As reported by the TCR on July 18, 2017, Fitch Ratings has affirmed
the ratings of Hovnanian Enterprises, Inc. (NYSE:  HOV), including
the company's Long-term Issuer Default Rating (IDR) at 'CCC'.


HUNTWICKE CAPITAL: Will File Form 10-K Within Extension Period
--------------------------------------------------------------
Huntwicke Capital Group Inc. was unable, without unreasonable
effort or expense, to file its annual report on Form 10-K for the
year ended April 30, 2017, by the July 31, 2017, filing date
applicable to smaller reporting companies due to a delay
experienced by the Company in completing its financial statements
and other disclosures in the Annual Report.  As a result, the
Company is still in the process of compiling required information
to complete the Annual Report and its independent registered public
accounting firm requires additional time to complete its review of
the financial statements for the year ended April 30, 2017, to be
incorporated in the Annual Report.  The Company anticipates that it
will file the Annual Report no later than the fifteenth calendar
day following the prescribed filing date.

                     About Huntwicke Capital

Huntwicke Capital Group Inc., formerly known as Magnolia Lane
Income Fund, was incorporated in the state of Delaware on May 12,
2009.  The Company was formed to commence business as a stock agent
in the wool trade.

On May 13, 2013, the Company entered into a stock purchase
agreement with Ian Raleigh and Michael Raleigh and Magnolia Lane
Financial, Inc., whereby the Purchaser purchased from the Sellers,
10,000,000 shares of common stock, par value $0.0001 per share, of
the Company, representing approximately 69.57% of the issued and
outstanding shares of the Company.  As a result, the Purchaser
became the majority shareholder of the Company.

Magnolia Lane reported a net loss of $197,969 for the year ended
April 30, 2016, compared to a net loss of $187,294 for the year

$2.67 million in total liabilities and $3.25 million in total
stockholders' equity.

Liggett & Webb, P.A., in Boynton Beach, Florida, issued a "going
concern" qualification on the consolidated financial statements for
the year ended April 30, 2016, citing that the Company has used
cash in operations of $22,835 and an accumulated deficit of
$707,094 at April 30, 2016.  These matters raise substantial doubt
about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.

JANKOSA INC: Plan Exclusivity Period Extended through August 25
---------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. August B. Landis of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Nevada extended the period in which only Jankosa Inc.
may exclusively file a Chapter 11 Plan until August 25, 2017.
  
The Troubled Company Reporter has previously reported that the
Debtor asked the Court for 60 days exclusivity extension to give
the Debtor necessary time to complete refinancing of its debt owed
to secured creditor, Wells Fargo Bank, N.A.  The Debtor told the
Court that if the refinancing fails to close then the Debtor will
have adequate time in which to prepare and file a Chapter 11 Plan.


The Debtor said it was still negotiating with Nevada Mortgage, Inc.
to refinance Wells Fargo's debt.  The Debtor said that when the
financing closes, it will no longer require the protection of the
Court and the case will likely be voluntarily dismissed with the
purposes of the Code being maintained.

                        About Jankosa Inc.

Jankosa Inc. owns and manages a single parcel of real estate
property.  Jankosa Inc. filed a Chapter 11 petition (Bankr. D. Nev.
Case No. 17-11492), on March 28, 2017.  The Debtor is represented
by Roger P. Croteau, Esq. and Tmothy E. Rhoda, Esq. at Roger P.

JODY KEENER: Trustee Selling Cedar Rapids Property for $34K
-----------------------------------------------------------
Renee K. Hanrahan, Chapter 11 Trustee of Jody L. Keener, asks the
United States Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Iowa to
authorize the sale of the Debtor's fee simple interest in the
vacant lot located at 4121 Paradise Court NW, Cedar Rapids, Linn
County, Iowa, and legally described as Lot 10, Connie First
Addition in the City of Cedar Rapids, Linn County, Iowa, to Richard
Mills for $34,300.

Collins Community Credit Union ("CCCU") holds several mortgages on
the various parcels of real estate owned by the Debtor.  This
includes the vacant lot which is the subject of the Motion.  The
amount owed to CCCU exceeds the proposed purchase price as set
forth.

Super Wings International, Ltd. also holds an interest in the
Debtor's real property as a result of a judgment lien which stems
from the final judgment entered in the U.S. District Court for the
Northern District of Iowa in Case No. C09-115-JSS.  This lien is
inferior to the mortgages of CCCU on the real property in the
bankruptcy estate.

The mortgages of CCCU will attach to the proceeds of sale and
$20,000 of the net proceeds will be paid to CCCU.

On July 18, 2017 the Trustee received an offer to purchase the
vacant lot for the sum of $34,300.  The Trustee proposes to sell
the porperty free and clear of all liens and encumbrances.

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

       http://bankrupt.com/misc/Jody_Keener_908_Sales.pdf

Although the purchase price is less than its claim, CCCU is willing
to allow the Trustee to retain from the vacant lot's sale the net
proceeds in excess of $20,000.  The Trustee will use these funds
for reasonable, necessary costs of preserving, or disposing of the
real property proposed to be sold, as well as all other real
property owned by the Debtor as set forth, encumbered by the
mortgages held by CCCU, and also encumbered by the Super Wings'
judgment referred to.  The net proceeds retained by the Trustee
will not be used until further order of the Court, following the
Trustee's Application or Motion.

In the event the Court approves the Motion, the Trustee asks
authority to pay: (i) real estate commissions; (ii) the proration
of all real estate taxes on the vacant lot to the date of closing;
(iii) all abstracting costs and other customary sales expenses such
as escrow closing services, document preparation, and transfer
taxes (if applicable); (iv) the $20,000 will be payable to CCCU in
order to reduce the balance owed to this creditor pursuant to the
mortgage executed by the Debtor in favor of CCCU.

Further, the Trustee asks authority to execute any and all deeds
and other transfer documentation as may be necessary to close the
real estate transaction described above.  This may include a
Redemption Certificate prepared by the Linn County Treasurer's
Office.  In the event this document is required, the estate agrees
to indemnify Linn County.

The Trustee posits that the sale proposed is in the best interest
of the bankruptcy estate and its creditors as (i) the net sales
proceeds in excess of $20,000 retained as carve-out will allow the
Trustee to pay future expenses attributable to the remaining real
property of the Debtor; and (ii) the proceeds to be paid to CCCU
will be $20,000, which will reduce the balance owed on the notes
and mortgages held by CCCU and advance the payment of these
obligations, in contemplation of eventual real estate sales for the
benefit of Super Wings and possibly the unsecured creditors of this
estate.  Accordingly, the Trustee asks the Court to approve the
relief requested.

Jody L. Keener filed a voluntary Chapter 11 bankruptcy (Bankr.
Case
No. 14-01169, Bankr. N.D. Iowa) on July 28, 2014.  Renee K.
Hanrahan was appointed by the Court as the Chapter 11 Trustee for
the Debtor on April 6, 2017.  Jeffrey P. Taylor, Esq., at Klinger,

Robinson & Ford, L.L.P., serves as the Trustee's counsel.


JOHN Q. HAMMONS: Kraemer Buying Middleton Property for $1.5M
------------------------------------------------------------
John Q. Hammons Fall 2006, LLC, and its affiliates, ask the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the District of Kansas to authorize the sale
of approximately 3.7 acres of vacant land located in the southwest
quadrant of John Q. Hammons Drive and Holiday Drive, City of
Middleton, Dane County, Wisconsin, to Kraemer Development, LLC for
$1,500,000.

The Debtors in these chapter 11 cases consist of the Revocable
Trust of John Q. Hammons, Dated December 28, 1989 as Amended and
Restated (the "Trust") and 75 of its directly or indirectly wholly
owned subsidiaries and affiliates.  One of the assets owned by the
Trust is the Real Estate.

The Real Estate is currently used by Atrium Holding Co. or one its
subsidiaries as an additional parking lot and/or a place for
holding storage containers.  It is adjacent to a hotel owned and
operated by Atrium.  Atrium has previously used the Real Estate for
parking at its hotel with the permission of the Trust ("Potential
Atrium Interest").

No written agreement exists between Atrium and the Trust that
governs or sets forth the terms of Atrium's use of the Real Estate,
Atrium pays no periodic fee to the Trust for the use of the Real
Estate, and Atrium has filed nothing of record in the Dane County,
Wisconsin Register of Deeds of Office with respect to the Potential
Atrium Interest.

By order entered Dec. 13, 2016, the Court granted the Debtors'
motion to reject a "Sponsor Entity Right of First Refusal
Agreement, Dated September 16, 2005 and Agreement and Amendment,
Dated December 10, 2008" executed by and among JD Holdings, LLC
("JDH") and the Debtors ("ROFR").

JDH asserts, incorrectly, that the ROFR is an interest in the Real
Estate.  The ROFR is not recorded against the Real Estate.  Atrium
failed to object to the Motion and, accordingly, the Real Estate
may be sold free and clear of the Potential Atrium Interest.

On May 26, 2017, the Trust entered into Purchase Agreement with the
Purchaser to sell the Real Estate to Purchaser on the terms and
conditions set forth therein.  Under the terms of the Purchase
Agreement, the Purchaser will pay $1.38 million in cash for the
Real Estate.

The Original Purchase Agreement included, inter alia, these other
terms and conditions: (i) the Purchaser to make earnest money
deposit of $20,000; (ii) the Purchaser had 120 days to complete its
due diligence and the sale would close within 30 days of due
diligence being completed; and (iii) the Purchaser had the right to
terminate the Original Purchase Agreement prior to completion of
due diligence.

On June 26, 2017, the Debtors filed the Motion requesting authority
to sell the Real Estate to the Purchaser on the terms and
conditions set forth in the Original Purchase Agreement ("Ammended
Motion").

On July 6, 2017, the Trust received a competing offer from JDH, the
only party to object to the Motion ("Original JDH Offer").  The
Original JDH Offer did not increase the Original Purchase Price,
but instead offered what JDH contended were better non-economic
terms, including, but not limited to, increasing the earnest money
deposit from $20,000 to $100,000 and reducing the due diligence
period from 120 days to 90 days.

Between July 6, 2017 and July 17, 2017, the Trust continued
discussions with the Purchaser and JDH, which resulted in an
increase of the Original Purchase Price from $1.38 million to $1.4
million, the earnest money deposit to $200,000, the removal of the
due diligence period, and a commitment to close the sale
transaction 30 days after Court approval.

Between July 18, 2017 and July 28, 2017, the Trust conducted a
competitive bidding process between the Purchaser and JDH, which
included several offers and counteroffers by both parties.  As set
forth in the chronology, the Trust requested that the parties make
bids in $50,000 increments only.  JDH's next bid declined to do
so.

While that date was not feasible for counsel for the Debtors,
nevertheless the Trust made every effort to accommodate JDH's
wishes to bring the bidding to a conclusion on July 28, 2017.  To
that end, on July 27, 2017, the Debtors' counsel sent an email to
counsel for both the Purchaser and JDH asking each of them to make
one final bid by July 28, 2017 at 5:00 p.m. (CT).  Both parties
timely submitted final bids and, on July 28, 2017.

Based on the bids, the Purchaser's offer in the amount of $1.5
million is $50,000 higher than JDH's bid of $1.45 million.  As a
result, the Trust selected the Purchaser as the highest and best
bidder for the Real Estate.  Thus, under the terms of the revised
offer from the Purchaser ("Revised Offer"), the Purchaser will pay
$1.5 million for the Real Estate. The Revised Offer includes, but
is not limited to, these terms and conditions: (i) elimination of
the due diligence period; (ii) no obligation for the Trust to
obtain a title commitment or policy; (iii) no contingencies; and
(iv) closing will occur within 30 days after entry of an order
approving the sale.

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

      http://bankrupt.com/misc/John_Hammons_1151_Sales.pdf

The Trust has completed a competitive bidding process between the
Purchaser and JDH and, as a result of that process, it is clear
that the Purchase Price represents the highest and best offer for
the Real Estate.  For this reason, the Trust has not engaged, and
does not propose to engage, a broker to market the Real Estate and
thereby will avoid the additional cost associated with paying a
broker's commission (6% or approximately $90,000) and closing will
not be delayed.

The only possible lien against the Real Estate is to secure current
real estate taxes owed.  As set, those taxes are significantly less
than the sale price.  Moreover, the taxes will be paid at closing,
thus extinguishing any such lien.  Therefore, as to any tax lien,
Section 363(f) of the Bankruptcy Code is not implicated because the
sale will not be free and clear of any such tax lien, but rather
will result in the payment thereof at closing.

The ROFR is not filed of record against the Real Estate.  The Court
has approved rejection of the ROFR and the rejection order is a
final order.  In an abundance of caution, however, the Trust asks
an order that approves the sale of the Real Estate free and clear
of claims and interests, to include the ROFR.

The Trust has determined that the proposed sale of the Real Estate
to the Purchaser is the best way to maximize the value of the Real
Estate for these bankruptcy cases.  Maximization of asset value is
a sound business purpose, warranting authorization of the sale.
Accordingly, the Trust asks the Court to approve the relief
sought.

The Debtors ask request that in the order approving the sale, that
the Court waives the 14-day waiting requirement of Rule 6004 so
that, in reliance on the order approving the Amended Motion, the
Debtors and the Purchaser can immediately close the sale
transaction.

KUEHG CORP: Moody's Revises Outlook to Stable & Affirms B3 CFR
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service changed KUEHG Corp.'s rating outlook to
stable from positive and affirmed the company's B3 Corporate Family
Rating (CFR) and B3-PD Probability of Default Rating (PDR)
following the announced dividend recapitalization transaction.
Moody's also assigned a Caa2 rating to KinderCare Education's
proposed $260 million second lien term loan due 2025 and upgraded
to B1 from B2 the ratings on the company's first lien senior
secured credit facilities, consisting of an amended and upsized
$940 million ($932 million outstanding) term loan due 2022 and an
$80 million revolving credit facility due 2020.

In a proposed transaction, the proceeds from KinderCare Education's
new $260 million second lien term loan and $50 million first lien
term loan add-on will be used to fund a shareholder distribution.
This is the first time since the Partners Group acquired the
company in August 2015 for approximately $1.5 billion that the
company has taken on additional debt to fund a distribution.

The change in rating outlook to stable from positive reflects the
aggressive financial policies associated with this transaction, and
the weakening of the company's pro forma credit metrics and cash
flow characteristics. The change in outlook also reflects Moody's
view that it will take a longer time period compared to previous
expectations for KinderCare Education's credit metrics to approach
levels consistent with a higher rating. With an additional $310
million of debt, KinderCare Education's pro forma leverage, as
measured by Moody's-adjusted debt to EBTIDA, rises to 6.0x from
5.3x and EBITDA less capex to interest coverage declines to 1.2x
from 1.4x. The addition of higher-interest second lien term loan
and first lien term loan upsize increase the company's interest
expense by approximately $20 million, which will reduce its free
cash flow. In Moody's view, pro forma credit metrics position the
company well within the B3 rating category.

The upgrade of first lien term loan rating to B1 reflects the
introduction of the second lien debt to the company's capital
structure, and the loss absorption provided by this instrument.

The following rating actions were taken:

Issuer: KUEHG Corp.

Corporate Family Rating, affirmed at B3

Probability of Default Rating, affirmed at B3-PD

Proposed $260 million second lien senior secured term loan due
2025, assigned at Caa2 (LGD5)

Amended $940 million ($932 million outstanding including proposed
$50 million add-on) first lien senior secured term loan due 2022,
upgraded to B1 (LGD3) from B2 (LGD3)

$80 million first lien senior secured revolving credit facility due
2020, upgraded to B1 (LGD3) from B2 (LGD3)

Outlook, changed to stable from positive

RATINGS RATIONALE

The B3 CFR reflects KinderCare Education's modest free cash flow
generation given high capex requirements as the company refreshes
its portfolio of existing learning centers and builds new centers,
and high levels of debt following the leveraged buyout by Partners
Group in August 2015 and the proposed dividend recapitalization.
The rating also reflects the cyclical nature of the child-care and
education industry, where demand for the service is sensitive to
macroeconomic factors such as employment and demographic trends,
the highly fragmented and competitive nature of the industry, and
susceptibility to reductions in federal and state funding support.
Furthermore, the company's ratings are negatively affected by
aggressive financial policies, including shareholder distributions
given the private equity ownership. However, the rating is
supported by the company's large scale within the childcare and
education industry, broad geographic diversity within the U.S., and
the value of its brands. Additionally, the ratings favorably
reflect improving general economic conditions and employment
trends, and Moody's projection for low to mid-single digit same
center sales growth and improving occupancy rates. Moody's also
expects the company's ongoing cost structure rationalization and
real estate portfolio optimization initiatives will continue to
drive margin improvements. Also supportive of the rating are
favorable long term demographic fundamentals, including population
growth and increasing percentage of dual income families.

KinderCare Education has adequate liquidity. Liquidity is supported
by the flexibility under the maximum first lien net leverage
springing covenant in the $80 million undrawn revolving credit
facility and an extended debt maturity profile. However, the
company's liquidity is constrained by only modest free cash flow
generation, given the high level of capital expenditures and cash
interest expense, and the modest revolver size relative to the
company's revenue base.

The ratings could be upgraded if the company demonstrates same
center revenue growth and improves operating margins such that
EBITDA less capex to interest coverage exceeds 1.5x, free cash flow
to debt is in the mid-single digit range, and adjusted debt to
EBITDA is sustained below 5.0x. In addition, for a higher rating
consideration, the company would need to demonstrate a substantial
improvement in liquidity including stronger and consistent free
cash flow generation.

The ratings could be downgraded if the company experiences a
deterioration in its operating performance or increase in leverage,
possibly due to declines in same center sales, acquisitions or
shareholder distributions. Adjusted debt to EBITDA sustained above
6.5x or a material weakening in the company's liquidity profile
could also pressure ratings.

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

KinderCare Education, based in Portland, Oregon, is a large scale
for-profit provider of child-care and education services in the
U.S. As of July 1, 2017, the company had a licensed capacity to
serve 177,500 children from 6 weeks to 12 years of age in 38 states
and the District of Columbia. The company operates approximately
1,291 community-based centers, 80 employer-partnership centers and
497 school-partnership sites under a number of recognized brands,
including "KinderCare", "KinderCare Education at Work" (formerly
"CCLC"), and "Champions." KinderCare Education was acquired by
Partners Group in August 2015. In the LTM period ending July 1,
2017, the company generated approximately $1.6 billion in revenues.


KUEHG CORP: S&P Lowers Corp Credit Rating to 'B-', Outlook Stable
-----------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings lowered its corporate credit rating on
U.S.-based early childhood education provider KUEHG Corp. to 'B-'
from 'B'. The rating outlook is stable.

S&P said, "At the same time, we lowered our issue-level rating on
the company's $945 million first-lien term loan ($932 million
outstanding), which includes the proposed $50 million add-on, to
'B-'from 'B'. The '3' recovery rating is unchanged, indicating our
expectation for meaningful recovery (50%-70%; rounded estimate:
50%) of principal for debtholders in the event of a payment
default.

"We also assigned our 'CCC' issue-level rating and '6' recovery
rating to the company's proposed $260 million senior secured
second-lien term loan. The '6' recovery rating indicates our
expectation for negligible recovery (0%-10%; rounded estimate: 0%)
of principal for debtholders in the event of a payment default.

"The downgrade reflects our expectation that KUEHG's debt-financed
dividend will increase our lease-adjusted debt level to 7.2x from
6.3x and its reported free-operating-cash flow will be negligible
in 2017. The company has taken positive steps in closing
underperforming centers, which will improve profitability and
EBITDA margins going forward. Nonetheless, we believe the increased
interest burden from the additional debt, coupled with increased
capital expenditure investments to build new centers and refurbish
existing ones, will continue to constrain cash flow generation over
the next two years.

"The stable rating outlook reflects our expectation that KUEHG's
discretionary free cash flow will be positive, though minimal, over
the next 12-18 months as the company pursues continued growth
capital spending. We also expect that its leverage will remain
elevated for the next 12 months but decline to below 7x in 2018,
supported by revenue and EBITDA growth in the mid-single-digit
percentage area.

"We could lower our corporate credit rating on KUEHG if the
company's operating performance weakens or if we believe its
discretionary cash flow will remain negative on a sustained basis,
straining liquidity. This could occur if an unexpected reversal in
employment trends results in lower enrollment and insufficient cash
flow to fund the company's capital spending requirements and
interest payments. We could also lower the rating if the company
pursues additional debt-financed dividends that would increase
leverage to above 8x on a sustained basis.

"Although highly unlikely over the next 12 months, we could
consider an upgrade if we conclude that the company will be able to
reduce and maintain lease-adjusted leverage below 6x and generate
meaningful discretionary cash flow. We would also consider
management's track record with respect to repaying debt and
returning cash to shareholders."


LACLEDE STEEL: Judge Schermer Holds Plan Committee in Contempt
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Honorable Barry S. Schermer entered an order Aug. 2, 2017,
holding the Plan Committee established under confirmed chapter 11
plan in Laclede Steel Company chapter 11 proceeding in contempt for
having knowingly violated the terms of the confirmed plan.  

Judge Schermer found that the Plan Committee knowingly violated the
terms of the Plan in failing to pay the United States' allowed
priority claim.  The Court concludes that the Plan Committee is in
contempt of the Court's order confirming the Plan and the Plan
itself.  As a result, Judge Schermer ordered that:

     (A) no later than Aug. 16, 2017, the Plan Committee shall
remit payment to the United States on account of its allowed
priority claim in the amount of $128,230 -- with such payment made
in accordance with payment instructions that the United States will
provide to the Plan Committee’s counsel;

     (B) within 30 days of entry of this order, the Plan Committee
shall file a statement, with service on the United States Trustee,
certifying whether the Plan Committee has made a final distribution
on account of all allowed claims;

     (C) if the Plan Committee has not made a final distribution on
account of all allowed claims within 30 days of entry of this
order, then the Plan Committee shall file and serve on the United
States Trustee a statement describing (a) why the final
distribution has not been made, (b) what steps have been taken to
make the final distribution in the past 30 days, and (c) when the
final distribution is anticipated; the Plan Committee shall file
and serve statements containing that information on a monthly basis
until the Plan Committee files a statement, with service on the
United States Trustee, certifying that a final distribution has
been made;

     (D) no later than Aug. 16, 2017, the Plan Committee shall
remit payment to the United States on account of its reasonable
attorney's fees in securing the Plan Committee's compliance with
the Plan in the amount of $2,720 --  with such payment made in
accordance with payment instructions that the United States will
provide to the Plan Committee's counsel; and

     (E) no later than Aug. 9, 2017, the United States shall serve
on the Plan Committee a statement of its reasonable expenses in
securing the Plan Committee’s compliance with the Plan, and no
later than Aug. 16, 2017, the Plan Committee shall remit payment to
the United States on account of its reasonable expenses—with such
payment made in accordance with payment instructions that the
United States will provide to the Plan Committee's counsel.

Judge Schermer confirmed the Second Amended Liquidating Plan of
Reorganization proposed by Laclede Steel Company and its Official
Committee of Unsecured Creditors on May 19, 2005.  The Plan took
effect by its own terms on May 30, 2005.  As reported in the
Troubled Company Reporter on May 24, 2005, the Plan transferred the
Debtor's assets to a Plan Committee consisting of the members of
the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors.  The Plan Committee
was charged with completing the liquidation, administering all
Distributions to be made under the Plan, and objecting to claims.


One of only three full-line producers of continuous-weld pipe in
the United States at the time, Laclede Steel Company sought chapter
11 protection for a second time on July 27, 2001 (Bankr. E.D. Mo.
Case No. 01-48321).  The company disclosed more and $100 million in
assets and liabilities at the time of the filing.  Over the past
three and half years, the Company has closed its facilities,
conducted going concern sales and liquidated most of its real
property and other assets for the benefit of its creditors.  Lloyd
A. Palans, Esq., Christopher J. Lawhorn, Esq., David M. Unseth,
Esq., and Cullen K. Kuhn, Esq., at Bryan Cave LLP, represented the
Debtor.

M.B. UNLIMITED: Plan Filing Exclusivity Period Moved to October 8
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Elizabeth W. Magner of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the

M.B. Unlimited, Inc. may file a Plan of Reorganization and gain
acceptance of its Plan for a period of 60 days or until October 8,
2017 and December 7, 2017, respectively.

The Debtor already has filed a bankruptcy plan and, as reported by
the Troubled Company Reporter, the Court is set to hold a hearing
on August 16, at 10:00 a.m., to consider approval of the disclosure
statement explaining the plan.

The TCR also previously reported that the Debtor asked the Court
for exclusivity extension in an abundance of caution so as to avoid
confusion of the deadlines affording the Debtor exclusivity.

The Debtor alleged that upon filing its bankruptcy petition, the
Court issued a 120-day order setting the Plan filing date as August
9, 2017, and the acceptance deadline 60 days thereafter.
Subsequently, the Debtor was ordered by the Court in a June 12
order to file a Plan of Reorganization by July 5.

Property No. 2,731 was last appraised on March 7, 2012, by Beverly
& Associates, PSC, with a market value of $180,000.  At that time
Property No. 2,731 was occupied by Debtor for its operations and is
now vacant and vandalized.

Property No. 3,583 was last appraised on June 30, 2015 by RPA
Appraisal Advisors with a market value of $290,000.  At that time
the Property No. 3,583 was occupied by Debtor for its operations
and is now vacant and deteriorated.

Property No. 4,632 was last appraised on March 7, 2012 by Beverly &
Associates with a market value of $2,200,000 at that time the
Property No. 4,632 was occupied by Debtor for its operations and is
now vacant and deteriorated.

Property No. 12,239 was last appraised on June 12, 2017, by ODV

Property No. 16,978 was last appraised on June 9, 2017, by ODV

The Properties have been vacant since September 2016 when the
Debtor ceased its operations and some have been the object of
vandalism.

Furthermore, the real estate market in Puerto Rico as a result of
Puerto Rico's economic crisis continues to deteriorate.  The
Debtor's management is knowledgeable of the condition of the
Properties and has concluded that the purchase offers referred are
fair and represent the Properties' current market value.

The Debtor has no use for the Properties which are totally
encumbered in favor of Oriental Bank in excess of $5,900,000, with
no equity, as reflected in the title studies prepared by Estudios
Legales LLC on Nov. 23, 2016 and Title Solutions Corp., on Oct. 20
and 25, 2016.  On Nov. 20, 2016, Oriental filed a motion for relief
from stay as to, inter alia, the Properties in order to proceed
with the foreclosure of its mortgages thereon.  Oriental and the
Debtor have agreed that from the proceeds of the sale of the
Properties, totaling $1,998,000, Oriental is to receive a net
payment of $1,670,000, with the balance of $328,000, to be retained
by the Debtor for the payment of the real estate taxes due on the
Properties ($68,440), Real Estate Broker's commission ($99,900),
Notarial fees and Internal Revenue stamps ($15,790), and
administrative expenses as due in the regular course or as
otherwise authorized by the Court, with the balance to be
maintained in the Debtor's DIP operating account.

Otherwise the sale of the Properties is to be free and clear if any
interest thereon.

The Municipal Revenue Collection Center's statements relative
thereto are: (i) Property No. 2,731 - $4,608; (ii)  Property No.
3,583 - $8,173; (iii) Property No. 4,632 - $43,879; (iv) Property
No. 12,239 - $429; (v) Property No. 13,947 - $0; and (vi) Property
No. 16,978 - $11,351. The total is $68,440.

The Debtor asks the Court that after the expiration of the notice
period without an objection, an order be entered authorizing the
sale of the Properties.

MRI INTERVENTIONS: Incurs $2 Million Net Loss in Second Quarter
---------------------------------------------------------------
MRI Interventions, Inc., announced financial results for the second
quarter ended June 30, 2017.

Frank Grillo, president and chief executive officer of MRI
Interventions, Inc., said, "We continue to drive adoption of the
ClearPoint System through both increased utilization at existing
sites and the addition of new sites.  We completed 162 procedures
in the second quarter, our ninth consecutive quarter of record
patient procedures, completed three systems sales, and continued to
grow our user base with two new evaluation sites.  This strong
execution resulted in a 79% increase in total revenue over the same
period in 2016.  This revenue growth combined with our ongoing
focus on prudent expense control drove a 35% reduction in cash used
in operations compared with the prior year second quarter.  We also
have a strong new account pipeline and remain focused on expanding
our market penetration across a number of growing treatment
applications where ClearPoint offers compelling benefits to both
surgeons and patients.

"Also during the quarter, we completed a private placement
resulting in gross proceeds of $13.25 million before commissions
and offering expenses.  We believe this offering will fund the
Company to cash flow break-even results, as well as support the
commercialization work to enter two new markets with new therapies.
We have commenced work under our joint development agreement with
the Mayo Clinic for the treatment of intra-cranial hemorrhagic
stroke, and under our co-development agreement with Acoustic
MedSystems for the treatment of nonresectable pancreatic cancer
tumors.  We are very pleased with the results this quarter and
remain excited about the future of the Company."

           Financial Results - Quarter Ended June 30, 2017

Total revenues were $2.0 million for the three months ended June
30, 2017, an increase of $872,000, or 79%, compared with $1.1
million for the same period in 2016.  This increase was due
primarily to an increase in the Company's disposable and reusable
product sales.

ClearPoint disposable product sales increased $403,000, or 39%, to
$1.4 million for the three months ended June 30, 2017, compared
with $1.0 million for the same period in 2016.  This growth in
disposable sales reflected a record 162 ClearPoint procedures
performed in the 2017 second quarter.

ClearPoint reusable product sales were $457,000 for the three
months ended June 30, 2017, compared with $39,000 for the same
period in 2016.  Reusable products consist primarily of computer
hardware and software bearing sales prices that are appreciably
higher than those for disposable products and historically have
fluctuated from period to period.

Gross margin for the three months ended June 30, 2017, was 60%,
compared to gross margin of 53% for the same period in 2016.  The
increase in gross margin primarily reflected greater production
efficiencies achieved during the three months ended June 30, 2017,
due to higher sales and production volumes relative to the same
period in 2016.

Research and development costs were $1.1 million during the three
months ended June 30, 2017, compared to $750,000 during the same
period in 2016, an increase of $334,000, or 45%.  The increase was
due to upfront payments aggregating $522,000, the majority of which
was in the form of shares of the Company's common stock, required
under the previously announced development agreements entered into
in April 2017 with the Mayo Clinic and Acoustic MedSystems, Inc.
These payments were partially offset by reductions in software
development and compensation expenses.

Selling, general and administrative expenses remained stable at
$1.9 million during the three months ended June 30, 2017, and
2016.

The Company's operating loss for the three months ended June 30,
2017 declined $233,000, or 11%, to $1.8 million, as compared with
$2.1 million for the same period in 2016.

In April 2016, the Company recorded a debt restructuring gain of
$941,000 resulting from the restructuring of a note payable to
Brainlab AG.  In June 2016, the Company recorded a debt
restructuring loss of $820,000 resulting from amendments to: (a)
the note payable to Brainlab; and (b) two of the 2014 junior
secured notes payable.  The Amendments provided for the conversion
into equity of an aggregate of $2.0 million principal amount of the
notes in the event the Company were to have completed a qualified
public offering as defined in the Amendments.

During the three months ended June 30, 2017, and 2016, the Company
recorded gains of $31,000 and $264,000, respectively, resulting
from changes in the fair value of derivative liabilities.  For the
three months ended June 30, 2017, such derivative liabilities
related to: (a) the issuance of warrants in connection with 2012
and 2013 private placement transactions; and (b) the amendment
entered in with Brainlab in June 2016.  For the three months ended
June 30, 2016, derivative liabilities also included those certain
June 2016 amendments to the 2014 Notes.

Net interest expense during the three months ended June 30, 2017,
and 2016 was $213,000 and $251,000, respectively, a decrease of
$39,000, or 15%.  This decrease was due to the reduction of
principal balances of the note payable to Brainlab, resulting from
the restructuring of that note, and to the 2014 Notes resulting
from the conversion into equity of an aggregate $1.75 million
principal balance of those notes entered into in August 2016 in
connection with the Company's private offering of equity units in
September 2016.

Reflecting the effects of these non-operational items, net loss for
the three months ended June 30, 2017, was $2.0 million, as compared
with $1.8 million for the same period in 2016.

      Financial Results - Six Months Ended June 30, 2017

Total revenues were $4.0 million for the six months ended June 30,
2017, an increase of $1.5 million, or 59%, compared with $2.5
million for the same period in 2016.  This increase was due
primarily to an increase in the Company's disposable and reusable
product sales.

ClearPoint disposable product sales increased $965,000, or 45%, to
$3.1 million for the six months ended June 30, 2017, compared with
$2.1 million for the same period in 2016.  This growth in
disposable sales reflected a record 308 ClearPoint procedures
performed during the six months ended June 30, 2017.  ClearPoint
reusable product sales were $765,000 for the six months ended June
30, 2017, compared with $301,000 for the same period in 2016.

Gross margin for the six months ended June 30, 2017, was 61%,
compared to gross margin of 51% for the same period in 2016.

Research and development costs were $1.6 million during the six
months ended June 30, 2017, compared to $1.4 million during the
same period in 2016, an increase of $235,000, or 17%.  The increase
was due to the upfront payments required under the previously
announced development agreements entered into in April 2017 with
the Mayo Clinic and Acoustic MedSystems, Inc., which were partially
offset by reductions in software development and compensation
expenses.

Selling, general and administrative expenses slightly increased to
$4.0 million during the six months ended June 30, 2017, compared to
$3.9 million for the same period in 2016.

The Company's operating loss for the six months ended June 30, 2017
declined $813,000, or 20%, to $3.2 million, as compared with $4.0
million for the same period in 2016.

During the six months ended June 30, 2016, the Company recorded a
net gain from debt restructuring of $121,000, arising from the
restructuring of note payable to Brainlab and the 2014 Notes.

During the six months ended June 30, 2017 and 2016, the Company
recorded a loss of $62,000 and a gain of $424,000, respectively,
resulting from changes in the fair value of the derivative
liabilities existing at those respective dates.

Net interest expense during the six months ended June 30, 2017 and
2016 was $426,000 and $596,000, respectively, a decrease of
$171,000, or 29%.  This decrease was due to the reduction of
principal balances.

Reflecting the effects of these non-operational items, net loss for
the six months ended June 30, 2017, was $3.7 million, as compared
with $3.8 million for the same period in 2016.

                      Private Placement

As previously announced, on May 26, 2017, the Company completed a
private placement of equity units, which resulted in gross proceeds
of $13.25 million, before deducting placement agents’ fees and
offering expenses.

                      Reverse Stock Split

As previously announced, on July 21, 2016, the Company's Board of
Directors approved a 1-for-40 reverse stock split of its issued
common stock, which was effectuated on July 26, 2016.  All
disclosure of common shares and per share data in the accompanying
condensed consolidated financial statements have been adjusted
retroactively to reflect the reverse stock split for all periods
presented.

                    About MRI Interventions

Based in Irvine, Calif., MRI Interventions, Inc. --
www.mriinterventions.com -- is a medical device company.  The
Company develops and commercializes platforms for performing
minimally invasive surgical procedures in the brain and heart under
direct, intra-procedural magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) guidance.
It has two product platforms: ClearPoint system, which is used to
perform minimally invasive surgical procedures in the brain and
ClearTrace system, which is under development, to be used to
perform minimally invasive surgical procedures in the heart.

MRI Interventions incurred a net loss of $8.06 million for the year
ended Dec. 31, 2016, compared to a net loss of $8.44 million for
the year ended Dec. 31, 2015.  

As of June 30, 2017, MRI had $16.85 million in total assets, $8.32
million in total liabilities and $8.52 million in total
stockholders' equity.

Cherry Bekaert LLP, in Charlotte, North Carolina, issued a "going
concern" qualification on the consolidated financial statements for
the year ended Dec. 31, 2016, citing that the Company incurred net
losses during the years ended Dec. 31, 2016, and 2015 of
approximately $8.1 million and $8.4 million, respectively.
Additionally, the stockholders' deficit at Dec. 31, 2016, was
approximately $756,000.  These conditions raise substantial doubt
about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.


NAVISTAR INTERNATIONAL: Will End Engine Production at Melrose Park
------------------------------------------------------------------
Navistar announced that it will cease all engine production at its
plant in Melrose Park, Ill., by the second quarter of fiscal 2018.
The Company will continue the facility's transformation into
Navistar's technical center, including truck and engine testing and
validation as well as used truck sales and reconditioning,
continuing the process that started in 2010.

The majority of engines produced at Melrose Park are medium duty
9/10 liter engines used in International Class 6 and 7 vehicles,
for which alternative engine options are currently offered in all
applications.  Once completed, the cessation of engine
manufacturing at Melrose Park is expected to affect about 170
employees and reduce Navistar's operating costs by approximately
$12 million annually.  The Company will take an approximate $43
million charge as a result of this action, including approximately
$8 million of cash related charges.

"Ceasing production of engines at Melrose Park is a difficult
decision, but represents another important step on our journey to
strengthening the company's competitiveness," said Persio Lisboa,
Navistar chief operating officer.  "Our N9/10 engine family was
updated in 2014 and since then has served as a competitive niche
offering for specific medium-duty vehicles.  As we approach future
regulatory requirements, the low volume nature of the platform
could not justify further product development investments on it."

In 2013, Navistar reintroduced the option of a 6.7 liter Cummins
engine for its Class 6/7 medium duty vehicles, followed in 2016 by
a 9 liter Cummins engine option, both of which have been well
received by customers.  All of the engines Navistar and its
partners manufacture for the U.S. market will continue to be built
in America.  The Cummins engines that are used in the medium duty
Class 6/7 segment are manufactured in Indiana and North Carolina,
while Navistar's big bore engine plant, which makes engines for
Navistar's Class 8 trucks, is in Alabama.

A significant portion of the hourly employees at Melrose Park are
retirement-eligible.  Assistance and opportunities for retraining
will be offered.

"Ending production anywhere is a difficult decision because it
affects employees," Lisboa said.  "We continue to be committed to
investing in our Melrose Park facility as we complete its
transformation into a technical center that is integral to our
product design, engineering and sales teams.  Given the investments
we've made, we expect to have a significant presence in Melrose
Park for years to come."

The transformation of the Melrose Park facility began in 2010, when
the company added a state-of-the-art truck testing and validation
center at the 80-acre campus, complementing the existing engine
test center there, and bringing hundreds of engineering jobs there
from out of state.  With truck and engine testing now being
conducted at Melrose Park, in close proximity to Navistar's product
development teams in Lisle and to the company’s New Carlisle,
Ind., proving ground, Navistar has reduced costs and improved
product design.

Over the last several months, the Company has added to its
investment in Melrose Park by opening a used truck evaluation and
reconditioning facility and its flagship Used Truck Sales Center.
Additional consolidation in the former manufacturing space is
possible in the future, which would allow even more employees in
product design, engineering, service and sales units to work
alongside each other.

                     About Pacific Drilling

Based in Luxembourg, Pacific Drilling S.A. (NYSE:PACD) is an
international offshore drilling contractor.  The Company's
primary business is to contract its high-specification rigs,
related equipment and work crews, primarily on a day rate basis,
to drill wells for its clients.  The Company's contract
drillships operate in the deepwater regions of the United States,
Gulf of Mexico and Nigeria.

Pacific Drilling reported a net loss of $37.15 million on $769.5
million of revenues for the year ended Dec. 31, 2016, as compared
with net income of $126.2 million on $1.08 billion of revenues
for the year ended Dec. 31, 2015.  

As of March 31, 2017, Pacific Drilling had $5.75 billion in total
assets, $3.18 billion in total liabilities and $2.57 billion in
total shareholders' equity.

The Company's independent auditors KPMG LLP, in Houston, Texas,
expressed substantial doubt about the Company's ability to
continue as a going concern in their report on the consolidated
financial statements for the year ended Dec. 31, 2016.  KPMG
noted that the Company expects to be in violation of certain of
its financial covenants in the next 12 months.

                          *     *     *

In October 2016, Moody's Investors Service downgraded Pacific
Drilling's Corporate Family Rating to 'Caa3' from 'Caa2' and
Probability of Default Rating (PDR) to 'Caa3-PD' from 'Caa2-PD'.
"PacDrilling's ratings downgrade reflects our extremely negative
view of the offshore drilling sector with no near term signs of
improvement.  Depressed prices for the offshore drillships offers
weak asset coverage for PacDrilling's overall debt.  With no
material signs of improving contract coverage or utilization for
PacDrilling's drillships, cashflow through 2017 will be severely
impacted resulting in an unsustainable capital structure," said
Sreedhar Kona, Moody's senior analyst.

In February 2017, S&P Global Ratings affirmed its ratings on
Pacific Drilling S.A., including its 'CCC-' corporate credit
rating.  S&P subsequently withdrew all ratings on the company at
its request.


PANDA TEMPLE: Exclusive Plan Filing Period Extended Until Nov. 13
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Laurie Selber Silverstein of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the District of Delaware extended the exclusive periods during
which only Panda Temple Power, LLC, and Panda Temple Power
Intermediate Holdings II, LLC may file a Chapter 11 plan of
reorganization and solicit acceptances of the plan to November 13,
2017, and January 15, 2018, respectively.

The Troubled Company Reporter has previously reported that the
Debtors asked the Court to extend their exclusive periods to
provide sufficient time to obtain confirmation and, ultimately,
consummation of the Plan without distraction from competing plans
of reorganization that may be filed by third parties.

Given the lack of alternatives and the fact that the vast majority
of claims against the Debtors arise from the prepetition credit
facility, the Debtors focused their efforts on negotiations with an
ad hoc group of prepetition lenders, which culminated in the
execution of that certain Restructuring Support Agreement, dated as
of the Petition Date. As of the Petition Date, the Debtors had
approximately $398.7 million in principal outstanding under their
Prepetition Credit Facility.  

After the Petition Date, on June 29, the Debtors filed their Joint
Plan of Reorganization and the accompanying Disclosure Statement
with the support of the Prepetition Lenders. On the same day, the
Court approved the Disclosure Statement and procedures for
soliciting votes on the Plan. But the Plan has not yet been
confirmed.  

The Debtors believed that it is in the best interest of their
estates and all parties in interest to pursue confirmation of the
consensual Plan.  The Debtors believed cause exists to grant the
extension of the Exclusive Periods to ensure a successful emergence
from bankruptcy without the distraction of competing, third-party
Chapter 11 plans, because, among others, the Debtors' Chapter 11
cases are large in size and complex in nature.

The Debtors assured the Court that extension of the Exclusive
Periods will not prejudice the legitimate interests of postpetition
creditors because the Debtors continue to make timely payments on
their undisputed postpetition obligations.

Middle District of Tennessee to authorize the private sale of the
real property located at 4029 Scotwood Drive, Nashville, Tennessee,

PENICK PRODUCE: Intends to File Chapter 11 Plan by November 22
--------------------------------------------------------------
Penick Produce Company, Inc. and its debtor-affiliates request the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Mississippi to
extend the exclusive periods within which to file Chapter 11 Plan
and to solicit acceptances on such plan through November 22, 2017
and January 22, 2018, respectively.

The Debtors contend that they have diligently attempted to move
these Chapter 11 cases forward. However, the cases are not
presently positioned such that meaningful effort toward formulation
of a plan or plans has been or is possible at this time.
Nonetheless, the Debtors have exhibited a good faith effort to
achieve progress and have likewise demonstrated good cause for
extending the Exclusive Periods, among others:

     (a) The Debtors have reached agreement with BancorpSouth Bank
providing for their continued use of cash collateral as evidenced
by interim and final agreed orders. The Debtors' operations have
outperformed their budgeted projections.

     (b) The Debtors have engaged Legacy Capital as their
investment banker, which has been working diligently to commence a
process to entertain the varying solicitations of interest in
potential transactions they have received. These processes are
underway, but neither the Debtors nor Legacy Capital have had ample
time at this juncture to make significant progress toward an
identifiable transaction of any kind.

     (c) The Debtors have remained current with all post-petition
obligations as they continue to work toward preparation for
operations commencing in the fall for a new business year.

     (d) The Debtors have exchanged information with BancorpSouth
Bank and the Committee in order to cooperate and collaborate on
these restructuring efforts, to the extent possible and to minimize
cost and distraction.

     (e) The Debtors have obtained approval of a claims procedure
to resolve all Perishable Agricultural Commodities Act trust claims
and of all other farmers that do not hold trust claims.

The Debtors tell the Court that this is the first extension being
sought by the Debtors of the Exclusivity Periods. However, the
Debtors contend that there remain additional tasks that will be
necessary to enable the Debtors to formulate and implement a
confirmable plan, and the Debtors believe that they can likely
achieve this within the extended periods requested. Neither
BancorpSouth nor the Committee have any objection to the requested
extensions sought by the Debtors.

PIONEER ENERGY: Incurs $20.2 Million Net Loss in Second Quarter
---------------------------------------------------------------
Pioneer Energy Services Corp. filed with the Securities and
Exchange Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q disclosing a
net loss of $20.21 million on $107.13 million of total revenues for
the three months ended June 30, 2017, compared to a net loss of
$29.99 million on $62.29 million of total revenues for the three
months ended June 30, 2016.

Second quarter Adjusted EBITDA was $12.9 million, up from $6.0
million in the prior quarter primarily due to higher activity from
the Company's Production Services Segment, as well as increased
utilization in its U.S. drilling operations.  Compared to the
year-earlier quarter, second quarter Adjusted EBITDA was up $9.3
million primarily due to increased activity in our Production
Services Segment.

For the six months ended June 30, 2017, the Company reported a net
loss of $45.33 million on $202.88 million of total revenues
compared to a net loss of $57.69 million on $137.24 million of
total revenues for the same period during the prior year.

As of June 30, 2017, Pioneer Energy had $708.54 million in total
assets, $470.67 million in total liabilities and $237.86 million in
total shareholders' equity.

"We are pleased with the solid improvement in our financial and
operating results and the sustained strength in customer activity
levels, despite some weakening in oil prices," said Wm. Stacy
Locke, president and CEO of Pioneer Energy Services.

"We continued to benefit from higher customer activity that began
late last year in both our Production Services and Drilling
Services Segments.  Our Production Services Segment realized double
digit revenue growth in all three business lines in the second
quarter with improving margins.  We expect our Production Services
Segment to continue to perform well as our customers work through a
backlog of drilled but uncompleted wells and deferred maintenance
on existing producing wells.  In our Drilling Services Segment, our
U.S. drilling rig fleet is 100% utilized and generating margins per
day which we believe are among the highest in the industry.  Seven
rigs have been renewed in the second and third quarters of 2017
with dayrates increasing a minimum of $2,000 per day, and two rigs
were extended through the end of 2018 and one extended for a year
beginning in July. In Colombia, three rigs are under contract
today.  Two of these rigs are currently earning revenues and the
third is in the process of moving to the next location.  One
additional rig is pending final negotiations on contracts.  The
outlook in Colombia is very positive for sustained work in the
third and fourth quarters of 2017 with improving utilization in
2018."

"While we are continuing to see improvement in the majority of the
regions in which we operate and we are benefiting from further
pricing increases, we intend to remain disciplined in our capital
expenditure program this year.  With the majority of our capital
spending in 2017 front-end loaded for equipment upgrades and
additional units to meet current customer demand, we anticipate
being cash flow neutral in the second half of the year.  We are
well positioned with high-quality equipment and best-in-class
service and safety that can compete and perform well in any of our
markets."

In the third quarter of 2017, Production Services Segment revenue
is estimated to be up approximately 5% to 10% as compared to the
second quarter of 2017.  Production Services Segment margin is
estimated to be 24% to 26% of revenues in the third quarter.
Drilling rig utilization in the third quarter is estimated to
average 74% to 77%.  Drilling Services Segment margin is expected
to be approximately $8,100 to $8,500 per day in the third quarter.

Working capital at June 30, 2017, was $52.8 million, up from $48.0
million at Dec. 31, 2016.  The Company's cash and cash equivalents
were $6.9 million, down from $10.2 million at year-end 2016.

The decrease in cash and cash equivalents during the first half of
2017 was primarily due to $40.0 million of cash used for purchases
of property and equipment and $16.3 million of cash used in
operating activities, partially funded by $42.7 million of net
borrowings under its Revolving Credit Facility and $7.7 million of
proceeds from the sale of assets.

The Company currently has $11.8 million in committed letters of
credit and $88.5 million in borrowings outstanding under our $150
million Revolving Credit Facility.

Cash capital expenditures during the six months ended June 30,
2017, were $40.0 million.  The Company estimates total capital
expenditures for 2017 to be approximately $56 million to $59
million, which includes approximately $22 million for drilling rig
upgrades, the exchange of 20 well servicing rigs which was
completed in the first quarter of 2017 and the purchase of six
wireline units.

Pioneer Energy reported a net loss of $128.39 million in 2016
following a net loss of $155.14 million in 2015.  

                           *    *    *

As reported by the TCR on March 7, 2016, Moody's Investors Service,
on March 3, 2016, downgraded Pioneer Energy's Corporate Family
Rating (CFR) to 'Caa3' from 'B2', Probability of Default Rating
(PDR) to 'Caa3-PD' from 'B2-PD', and senior unsecured notes to 'Ca'
from 'B3'.  "The rating downgrades were driven by the material
deterioration in Pioneer Energy's credit metrics through 2015 and
our expectation of continued deterioration through 2016.  The
demand outlook for drilling and oilfield services is extremely
weak, as witnessed by the steep and continued drop in the US rig
count" said Sreedhar Kona, Moody's vice president.  "The negative
outlook reflects the deteriorating fundamentals of the services
sector and the likelihood of covenant breaches."

The TCR reported on March 20, 2017, that S&P Global Ratings
affirmed its 'B-' corporate credit rating on Pioneer Energy.  The
outlook is negative.

REEVES COUNTY, TX: S&P Cuts Rating on 3 Bond Tranches to 'CCC+'
---------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings lowered its long-term rating on Reeves County,
Texas' project revenue bonds series 2012, 2010A, and 2010 three
notches to 'CCC+' from 'B+' and placed the rating on CreditWatch
with negative implications.

"The 'CCC+' rating reflects our view that the issuer is currently
vulnerable to nonpayment, and is dependent on favorable business,
financial, and economic conditions to be able to meet its financial
commitment on the project revenue bonds," said S&P Global Ratings
credit analyst Ann Richardson.

The downgrade is based primarily on the Federal Bureau of Prisons'
(BOP) decision to not re-award a contract to Reeves County
Detention Center (RCDC) I and II, and that all prisoners housed in
those units will be transferred to other facilities by July 31,
2017. The lowered rating also reflects the issuer's stated intent
to market and sell the facility, which may result in adverse
impacts to bondholders. A first lien on and pledge of monthly
facility revenues derived from the operation of the facility secure
the bonds. The BOP did award a short-term "bridge" contract, or a
12-month extension, to RCDC III at a fixed monthly rate. S&P said,
"Based on the revenue provided by the bridge contract, we believe
it should enable the county to continue to make its quarterly
payment over the next 12 months. However, we believe that continued
payment by the county of the financial obligations supporting the
bonds beyond the 12-month period of the bridge contract appears to
be unsustainable." The county is pursuing a different contract
under the Criminal Alien Requirement (CAR) 19 to secure additional
revenue sources for repayment of the bonds, but the timing of when
that contract will be awarded, and probability that Reeves County
will be awarded that contract, is unknown.

S&P said, "The CreditWatch placement reflects our view of the
uncertainty and potential negative implications stemming from a
lack of a long-term contract associated with the facility and the
county's intent to sell detention facility, as revenue derived from
that asset secures the bonds. The county indicated that part of the
difficulty in obtaining a long-term contract stems from an
uncompetitive cost structure, in part due to existing debt service.
As such, we believe that, absent the identification of an
alternative source of ongoing revenue, it appears unlikely that
bondholders will be made whole with respect to one or more of the
conditions of payment, terms, or covenants.

"The CreditWatch placement also reflects our view that the county
will continue to first allocate monthly revenues derived from the
BOP contract to the trustee for quarterly debt service payments
before funding operations. A violation of financial covenants could
also lead to a lowered rating. As a result, we have placed the
rating on CreditWatch, and will continue to monitor the possible
sale of the asset as well as engage in ongoing discussions with the
county to determine if it will continue to be able and willing to
honor its financial covenants."

petition was signed by James Achterhof, managing trustee and

RMS TITANIC: Wants Exclusive Plan Filing Period Moved to October 20
-------------------------------------------------------------------
RMS Titanic, Inc. and certain of its affiliates ask the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of Florida to further
extend the periods during which the Debtors have the exclusive
right to file a Chapter 11 plan and to solicit acceptance of such
plan through October 20, 2017 and January 12, 2018, respectively.

This is the Debtors' fourth extension request.

The Debtors seek to extend the exclusive periods to coincide with
certain deadlines set forth in the Plan Support Agreement between
the Debtors and the Committees, which was approved by the Court by
Order entered July 6, 2017.

The PSA contemplates a marketing and sale process for the Debtors
to be consummated through parallel sale and plan confirmation
processes. The PSA also provides a series of milestones, including,
among others, a deadline to file a plan and disclosure statement on
terms provided in the PSA no later than October 20, 2017, and a
deadline to obtain confirmation of such plan no later than January
12, 2018.

The Debtors have thus far satisfied each milestone contained in the
PSA, which has not been terminated as of the filing of the Debtors'
fourth motion. Moreover, the Debtors and the Committees are each
working diligently toward the sale and plan process contemplated by
the PSA. To that end, both Committees have consented to the
extension of exclusivity requested.

Without an appropriate extension of exclusivity, however, the
Debtors claim that the PSA would be subject to immediate
termination which would waste estate resources seeking further
extensions of exclusivity while the Debtors should be focusing on
consummating the sale and plan contemplated in the PSA.

Further, the Debtors have obtained approval of a DIP financing
agreement of up to $5,000,000 that will sustain operations and
funding of administrative expenses until a plan can be confirmed.
Accordingly, creditors and parties in interest will benefit from
the extension requested by the Fourth Exclusivity Motion, while the
Debtors and other interested parties can focus their resources on
consummating a consensual sale and plan pursuant to the PSA.

relating to the offering, on a best efforts basis, of up to
1,136,496 Class A Units, with each Class A Unit consisting of (i)
one ordinary share, par value NIS 7.2, or Ordinary Shares, and (ii)
a warrant to purchase one Ordinary Share, or a Series A Warrant.
The Company is also offering to those purchasers, if any, whose
purchase of Class A Units in this offering would result in the
purchaser, together with its affiliates and certain related
parties, beneficially owning more than 4.99% of its outstanding
Ordinary Shares immediately following the consummation of this
offering, the opportunity to purchase, if they so choose, up to
3,409,488 Class B Units, in lieu of Class A Units that would
otherwise result in beneficial ownership in excess of 4.99% (or at
the election of the purchaser, 9.99%) of the Company's outstanding
Ordinary Shares, with each Class B Unit consisting of (i) a
pre-funded warrant to purchase one Ordinary Share, or a Series B
Warrant, and (ii) a Series A Warrant to purchase one Ordinary
Share.  Each Class A Unit will be sold at an assumed public
offering price of $1.81 per unit, the closing price of the
Company's Ordinary Shares on the NASDAQ Capital Market on July 27,
2017.  The actual offering price per Class A Unit will be
determined between the Company and the placement agent at the time
of pricing and may be at a discount to the current market price.
Each Class B Unit will be sold at an assumed public offering price
of $1.80, and the Series B Warrants will have an exercise price of
$0.01 per Ordinary Share and will be exercisable immediately until
exercised in full.  The actual offering price per Class B Unit will
be determined between us and the placement agent at the time of
pricing and may be at a discount to the current market price, but
will be identical to the offering price of Class A Unit minus
$0.01.

The purchase price for the Class A Units and Class B Units will be
payable in cash or cancelation of unsecured convertible debentures
previously issued by the Company on Nov. 29, 2016, and Feb. 23,
2017, having an outstanding aggregate principal amount of
$1,818,975, or the Debentures.  A holder of the Company's
Debentures will be deemed to have paid $1.00 of the purchase price
for Class A Units or Class B Units, as applicable, for each $1.00
in principal amount of Debentures surrendered by such investor.

The Ordinary Shares issuable from time to time upon exercise of the
Series A Warrants (which is subject to the Charter Amendment) and
the pre-funded Series B Warrants are also being offered by this
prospectus.

The Company's Ordinary Shares are currently listed on the NASDAQ
Capital Market under the symbol "ROSG."  On July 27, 2017, the last
reported sale price of the Company's Ordinary Shares was $1.81 per
share.  There is currently no established public trading market for
the Series A Warrants and the pre-funded Series B Warrants offered
in this offering.  The Series A Warrants and pre-funded Series B
Warrants are not and will not be listed for trading on any national
securities exchange.

As reported by the TCR on Jan. 30, 2017, Fitch Ratings has affirmed
the Long-term Issuer Default Ratings (IDR) on Sears Holdings
Corporation (Holdings) and its various subsidiary entities
(collectively, Sears) at 'CC'.

The TCR reported on Dec. 19, 2016, that S&P Global Ratings affirmed
its ratings, including the 'CCC+' corporate credit rating, on Sears
Holdings Corp.  "We revised our assessment of Sears' liquidity to
less than adequate from adequate based on the impact of continued
and meaningful cash use and constraints on contractually committed
liquidity from cash use and incremental secured funded borrowings,"
said credit analyst Robert Schulz.  "We do not incorporate any
significant prospective asset sales or execution of strategic
alternatives for legacy hardline brands into our assessment of
committed liquidity."

As reported by the TCR on Jan. 24, 2017, Moody's Investors Service
downgraded Sears Holdings Corporate Family Rating to 'Caa2' from
'Caa1'.  Sears' 'Caa2' rating reflects the company's sizable
operating losses - Domestic Adjusted EBITDA (as defined by Sears)
was a loss of $884 million in the latest 12 month period.


SEARS HOLDINGS: Extends Maturity of $271M LC Facility to 2018
-------------------------------------------------------------
Sears Holdings Corporation, through Sears Roebuck Acceptance Corp.
and Kmart Corporation, entities wholly-owned and controlled,
directly or indirectly by the Company, entered into an amendment to
the Letter of Credit and Reimbursement Agreement dated Dec. 28,
2016, and amended March 2, 2017, providing for a secured standby
letter of credit facility from JPP, LLC and JPP II, LLC, with
Citibank, N.A., serving as administrative agent and issuing bank.
Mr. Edward S. Lampert, the Company's chief executive officer and
chairman, is the sole stockholder, chief executive officer and
director of ESL Investments, Inc., which controls JPP, LLC and JPP
II, LLC.

The Amendment, among other things, extends the maturity of the $271
million committed under the existing LC Facility from its original
maturity date of Dec. 28, 2017, through Dec. 28, 2018, and
eliminates the unused portion of the facility.  The Amendment also
increases the pricing under the LC Facility and provides for the
release of all real estate collateral that secured the existing
facility.  The LC Facility is guaranteed by the same subsidiaries
of the Company that guarantee the obligations under the Third
Amended and Restated Credit Agreement, dated as of
July 21, 2015, among the Borrowers, Bank of America, N.A., as
agent, and the lenders and other financial institutions party
thereto, and is secured by substantially the same collateral as the
Credit Agreement.  The Amended LC Facility Agreement contains a
borrowing base calculation, pursuant to which the Borrowers are
required to cash collateralize the LC Facility if the aggregate
obligations under the Credit Agreement and Amended LC Facility
Agreement exceed the Modified Borrowing Base, as defined in the
Amended LC Facility Agreement as of the end of any calendar month.
To secure their obligation to participate in letters of credit
issued under the LC Facility, the Lenders are required to maintain
cash collateral on deposit with the Issuing Bank in an amount equal
to 102% of the commitments under the LC Facility.

The Borrowers are required to pay the Lenders an upfront fee equal
to 1.00% of the aggregate amount of the Lender Deposit.  In
addition, the Borrowers are required to pay a commitment fee on the
average daily amount of the Lender Deposit (as such amount may be
increased or decreased from time to time), as well as certain other
fees.  In the event of reductions of the commitments under the LC
Facility or a termination of the LC Facility prior to the six month
anniversary of the effective date of the Amendment, under certain
circumstances the Borrowers will be required to pay an early
reduction/termination fee equal to the commitment fee that would
have accrued with respect to the reduced or terminated commitments
from the date of reduction or termination until the six month
anniversary.

The Amended LC Facility Agreement includes certain representations
and warranties, affirmative and negative covenants and other
undertakings, which are subject to important qualifications and
limitations set forth in the Amended LC Facility Agreement.  The
Amended LC Facility Agreement also contains certain events of
default, including (subject to certain materiality thresholds and
grace periods) payment default, failure to comply with covenants,
material inaccuracy of representation or warranty, and bankruptcy
or insolvency proceedings.  If an event of default occurs, the
Lenders may terminate all or any portion of the commitments under
the LC Facility, require the Borrowers to cash collateralize the LC
Facility and/or exercise any rights they might have under any of
the related facility documents (including against the collateral),
subject to certain limitations.

The LC Facility permits the Lenders to syndicate or participate all
or a portion of their commitments under the facility to other
lenders under certain circumstances.  Citigroup Global Markets Inc.
is serving as lead arranger and bookrunner for the LC Facility.
The Lenders have advised the Borrowers that they expect to
syndicate over 50% of their portion of the LC Facility to one or
more third parties.  None of the Lenders will receive any
syndication fee or compensation in connection with such
syndication.

SSH HOLDINGS: S&P Lowers CCR to 'CCC+' on Weak Performance
----------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings lowered its corporate credit rating on Egg
Harbor Township, N.J.-based retailer SSH Holdings Inc. d/b/a
Spencer Spirit to 'CCC+' from 'B-'. The outlook is negative.

S&P said, "At the same time, we lowered the issue-level rating on
the company's first-lien term loan facility to 'CCC+' from 'B-'.
Our '3' recovery rating on the term loan facility is unchanged and
reflects our expectation for moderate (50%-70%; rounded estimate:
50%) recovery in the event of a payment default.

"The downgrade reflects the company's recent weak operating
performance, combined with our view that an increasingly challenged
retail environment will continue to pressure profitability and cash
flow.

"The negative outlook reflects our expectation that operating
performance will continue to be soft over the next 12 months given
the increasingly challenging retail environment that will result in
continued declines in mall traffic, and mounting competitive
pressures weighing on profitability over that time period.

"We could lower the ratings if we envision a specific default
scenario, including a repayment of debt below par, occurring over
the next 12 months. We could also lower the rating if operating
performance under performs our expectations, resulting in
meaningfully negative free operating cash flow and reliance on the
revolving credit facility to fund business operations. Under this
scenario, revenue would be flat (compared with our base-case
expectation of low-single-digit revenue growth) and gross margin
would fall an additional 200 bps below our forecast.

"Although unlikely in the next 12 months, we could revise the
outlook to stable or raise the rating if the company can restore
consistent revenue and profit growth and generate positive free
operating cash flow, while stabilizing performance at the Spencer's
brand. This could result from solid merchandise management at
Spencer's, improved omni-channel functionality, and increased
consumer spending on small-ticket discretionary items. At that
time, fixed-charge coverage would be in the mid- to high-1.0x area,
and we would also believe that the possibility of a financial
restructuring is low due to a meaningfully improved operating
outlook for the company."

TALEN ENERGY: Moody's Rates $98MM Senior Unsecured Notes B1
-----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a B1 rating to approximately $98
million of Talen Energy Supply, LLC (Talen) senior unsecured
guaranteed notes due 2024 that Talen plans to issue in exchange for
a like amount of its senior unsecured unguaranteed notes due 2021.
Concurrently, Moody's affirmed Talen's existing ratings including
its corporate family rating (CFR) at B1, its probability of default
(PD) at B1-PD, its senior secured debt at Ba1, its senior unsecured
guaranteed debt at B1, and its senior unsecured, nonguaranteed debt
at B3. Talen's speculative grade liquidity rating (SGL) remains
SGL-2. The outlook for Talen is stable

RATINGS RATIONALE

The rating action follows the conclusion of Talen's offer to
exchange any and all of its 4.6% senior unsecured notes due 2021
(currently $703 million outstanding) for a similar amount of new
6.5% senior guaranteed notes due 2024. Only about $98 million of
2021 notes were tendered for exchange. The potential shift in debt
priorities has no impact on Talen's fundamental credit profile, or
its B1 CFR, and the modest amount of notes exchanged had no impact
on the ratings of Talen's existing securities.

Prior to the exchange, Talen's capital structure included about
$1.5 billion of senior unsecured debt; around $1.2 billion of
senior unsecured guaranteed debt; about $1.1 billion of senior
secured term loans; an approximate $1.3 billion secured revolving
credit facility; and approximately $600 million of non-recourse
debt. The exchange modestly increased the proportion of guaranteed
debt in the capital structure relative to the senior unsecured
debt, however not enough to impact their ratings. Although Moody's
views management's continuing efforts to address its maturity
towers as credit positive, the recurring use of guaranteed debt to
replace unsecured obligations as an enticement for the new lenders
is beginning to erode the benefit of their priority position. If
there were to be a material amount of additional exchanges, there
could be downward pressure on the ratings of the guaranteed debt.

Talen's B1 CFR reflects the inherent volatility of the merchant
power markets in which it operates and the weak power prices in
those markets. Based on current market conditions, Moody's
anticipates Talen's ratio of cash from operations excluding changes
in working capital (CFO pre-W/C) to total debt will generally
remain near 10%, which is commensurate with the "B" scoring range
in Moody's rating methodology for unregulated power companies.
Talen's portfolio is heavily weighted toward coal and nuclear
assets, which as a result of their higher fixed cost structure, are
more susceptible to margin compression as a result of lower power
prices. Management has been making progress in reducing costs,
which has worked as an offset to persistently low wholesale market
prices for energy and capacity in its regions. Continued focus in
this area, and the anticipated repayment of upcoming debt
maturities, will be a key factors in maintaining credit metrics
near their current levels.

The new notes will be guaranteed by the subsidiaries backing
Talen's secured term loans and revolving credit facilities. The
facilities were originally put in place in 2015 with the formation
of Talen; the guarantors exclude the Sapphire Power Generation
Holdings LLC entities (approximately 750 MW of gas-fired assets
previously designated to be sold), and the MACH Gen, LLC entities
(about 2.4 GW of subsequently acquired gas-fired assets that
support around $600 million of non-recourse debt.)

Rating Outlook

The stable outlook considers the company's ongoing cost savings
efforts and debt reduction plans. The outlook reflects Moody's
expectation that over the near to medium term Talen will
demonstrate cash flow credit metrics that are appropriate for the
B1 CFR. For example, Moody's expects a ratio of CFO pre-W/C to debt
in the range of 10%, or 8% counting nuclear fuel as a cash expense,
and Moody's expects the company to remain slightly free cash flow
positive.

Factors that Could Lead to an Upgrade

It is not likely the CFR would move upward over the next 12-18
months. Longer term, if the ratio of CFO pre-W/C to debt were to be
maintained in the mid-teens, there could be upward pressure on the
rating.

Factors that Could Lead to a Downgrade

If there were to be an increase in leverage, operational
challenges, or declines in commodity prices such that Moody's would
expects the ratio of CFO pre-W/C to debt to fall below 7%, or the
company to remain free cash flow negative, there could be downward
pressure on Talen's CFR. If there were to be additional
refinancings that replace unsecured debt with a material amount of
additional secured or guaranteed debt, there could be pressure on
the ratings of the secured or guaranteed notes.

TERRAVIA HOLDINGS: Proposes Corbion-Led Sale Process
----------------------------------------------------
TerraVia Holdings, Inc., and its affiliates ask the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the District of Delaware to authorize bidding procedures
in connection with their sale of substantially all assets to
Corbion N.V. for an aggregate price of $20 million, subject to
adjustments, subject to overbid.

The lack of revenue generated from the commercialization of the
Debtors' products, coupled with their operating losses and
burdensome debt load, strained their liquidity position.  As a
result, beginning in 2016, the Debtors began to evaluate all
available strategic restructuring options, including the sale of
all, substantially all or certain portions of the Business to
interested purchasers.  

Ultimately, after an exhaustive marketing process that took place
over approximately a five-month period, the Debtors determined that
the best restructuring path forward then available entailed the
sale of all or substantially all of the assets owned, held or used
in the conduct of the Business, including, but not limited to,
their manufacturing facility located in Peoria, Illinois, Debtor
TerraVia's 50.1% equity interest in its joint venture with Bunge
Global Innovation, LLC and certain of its affiliates and
subsidiaries ("JV Parties"), the Debtors' intellectual property
assets, inventory and certain other real and personal property
("Assets").

To that end, following a competitive process and arm's-length
negotiations, the Debtors secured a stalking horse bid from Corbion
to purchase a significant portion of the Assets for an aggregate
purchase price (subject to certain adjustments) of $20 million in
cash along with the assumption of certain liabilities ("Stalking
Horse Assets") on the terms and conditions set forth in the certain
Stock and Asset Purchase Agreement, dated as of Aug. 1, 2017, by
and among the Debtors and the Stalking Horse Bidder.

The salient terms of the Stalking Horse Agreement are:

    a. Stalking Horse Assets: All right, title and interest of
Sellers in, to and under the assets, properties and business, of
every kind and description, owned, held or used by Sellers that are
Related to the Business, whether real, personal or mixed, whether
tangible or intangible, of any kind and nature, whether or not
reflected on the books and records of the Sellers and their
Subsidiaries and wherever located, in each case, other than the
Excluded Assets

    b. Purchase Price: $20 million, subject to subject to certain
adjustments with the assumption of certain liabilities

    c. Break-Up Fee: 2.5% of the Purchase Price (i.e., $500,000)

    d. Expense Reimbursement Amount: Up to $300,000

    e. Closing and Other Deadlines: The Closing will occur no later
than two business days after satisfaction of, or (to the extent
permitted) waiver by, the party or parties entitled to the benefit
of the conditions set forth in Article 10 of the Stalking Horse
Agreement.

    f. Good Faith Deposit: $2,000,000

    g. Agreements with Management or Key Employees: The Debtors
will seek an order from the Court authorizing them to pay the
retention and severance payments to be made to certain Business
Employees of TerraVia with whom TerraVia has entered into severance
and retainer letter agreements and, upon obtaining such order,
TerraVia will make to the Business Employees the payments provided
for under severance and retainer letter agreements so long as such
payments do not violate any other order entered by the Court.

    h. Use of Proceeds: If the Break-Up Fee and Expense
Reimbursement Amount become due and payable by TerraVia to the
Stalking Horse Bidder under the Stalking Horse Agreement, such
amounts will be paid of immediately available funds under the terms
and conditions provided for in the Stalking Horse Agreement.

    i. Requested Findings as to Successor Liability Local Rule
6004-1(b)(iv)(L): The Debtors seek to sell the Stalking Horse
Assets to the Stalking Horse Bidder free and clear of all Liens and
Claims (other than any Permitted Liens or Assumed Liabilities).

     j. Seller: Solayzme Manufacturing 1, LLC and TerraVia
Holdings, Inc.

Given the exigencies of the the Debtors' financial condition and
the conditions to closing the Sale Transaction set forth in the
Stalking Horse Agreement, the Debtors believe that the timely sale
of the Assets in accordance with the sale process outlined in the
Motion is the best way to avoid a lower recovery for their
stakeholders that would result from a liquidation of their
estates.

To ensure that the Stalking Horse Bid is in fact the highest or
otherwise best offer for the purchase of the Assets, the Debtors
have developed the Bidding Procedures to govern the sale of the
Assets.  The Bidding Procedures allow interested parties to submit
bids for (i) all of the Stalking Horse Assets, (ii) particular lots
of individual Assets or combinations thereof as specified in the
Bidding Procedures or (iii) certain Excluded Assets not included in
the Stalking Horse Assets as specified in the Bidding Procedures,
in each case, subject to the terms and provisions of the Bidding
Procedures.

JV Parties' consent is not required to effectuate the transactions
contemplated by the Stalking Horse Agreement, the JV Parties
disagree.  To minimize the expense, inconvenience, distraction and
uncertainty of litigation in the Chapter 11 Cases, the Debtors have
entered into the Consent and Settlement Agreement with the Stalking
Horse Bidder and the JV Parties that, inter alia, (i) memorializes
the JV Parties' consent to the Sale Transaction and the assumption
and assignment to the Stalking Horse Bidder of the certain joint
venture agreements between the Debtors and the JV Parties; and (ii)
contemplates the mutual release of any and all claims between the
Debtors and the JV Parties.

The Debtors ask approval of the Consent and Settlement Agreement
pursuant to the Sale Order and respectfully submit that the Consent

TRIUMPH GROUP: Moody's Rates $500MM Senior Unsecured Notes B3
-------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has assigned a B3 rating to Triumph
Group, Inc. new senior unsecured notes. Proceeds from the offering
will be used to pay down revolver borrowings and the Term Loan A,
and for general corporate purposes. Concurrently, Moody's affirmed
the B2 Corporate Family Rating (CFR), the B2-PD Probability of
Default Rating, and the B3 rating on the senior unsecured notes due
2021 and 2022. The rating outlook is stable.

Issuer: Triumph Group, Inc.

The following ratings were assigned:

$500 million senior unsecured notes due 2025, assigned B3 (LGD4)

The following ratings were affirmed:

Corporate Family Rating, affirmed at B2

Probability of Default Rating, affirmed at B2-PD

Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating, affirmed at SGL-4

$375 million senior unsecured notes due 2021, affirmed at B3
(changed to LGD4 from LGD5)

$300 million senior unsecured notes due 2022, affirmed at B3
(changed to LGD4 from LGD5)

Outlook, Stable

RATINGS RATIONALE

The B2 CFR balances Triumph's considerable scale and
well-established presence as an aerospace supplier against the
company's highly leveraged balance sheet, on-going topline
pressures, and weak liquidity. Declining production rates on key
legacy platforms coupled with an elevated cost structure and
material working capital investments on new programs, are all
expected to weigh on sales, earnings and cash flows over the next
12 to 24 months. These pressures are expected to result in an
organic sales contraction of around 10% during FY 2018 and elevated
financial leverage with Moody's adjusted Debt-to-EBITDA anticipated
to peak at over 8x (includes 3x of pension adjustments) over the
next twelve months.

The recent increase in business wins and on-going efforts to reduce
costs and improved execution are viewed favorably. That said, the
company's ability to stabilize and grow sales and ultimately
improve its broader credit profile in fiscal 2019 and beyond
remains to be proven. Triumph's backlog has declined over the last
few years (FY 2017 backlog of $4 billion off 20% versus FY 2015),
although more recently it has stabilized, and highlights the need
to improve its competitive standing and reduce its cost structure.
The pending ramp-up of developing programs such as the Bombardier
7000 and Embraer E-Jet as well as recent settlements with large OEM
customers are credit positives, although execution risk on the 7000
and E-Jet acts as a tempering consideration. Absent unanticipated
delays or production cuts, low to mid-single-digit sales growth in
FY 2019 and FY 2020 seems achievable. Topline growth beyond this
will be contingent on Triumph's ability to win new business,
particularly in defense end-markets and in its shorter cycle
segments as opportunities for content wins in the longer cycle
structures business appear more limited.

Moody's expects Triumph to maintain weak liquidity over the next
twelve months. The liquidation of advance customer payments along
with sizable working capital investments is anticipated to result
in a very substantial use of cash during FY 2018 with free cash
flow likely to be negative to the tune of around $500 million.
External liquidity is provided by an $800 million revolving credit
facility that expires in May 2021 and a $225 million Accounts
Receivables (A/R) facility due November 2017. An inability to renew
the A/R facility would further weaken the company's liquidity.
Given the near-term usage of cash, Moody's expects heavy reliance
on the revolver over the next two years and the company's ability
to comply with its financial covenants will be an important
consideration. While not currently within the 12-15 month liquidity
rating horizon, the March 2019 maturity of the approximate $302
million term loan presents refinancing risk that would further
pressure liquidity if not proactively replaced.

The stable outlook acknowledges Triumph's well-established presence
as an aerospace supplier and the company's broad capabilities and
considerable scale. The stable outlook also considers opportunities
for an improved earnings and cash flow profile over the next two to
three years, and that Triumph will proactively address the upcoming
maturities at a manageable cost.

The ratings could be upgraded if Triumph were to sufficiently lower
leverage such that Debt-to-EBITDA on a Moody's adjusted basis was
expected to be sustained below 5.0 times. Any upgrade would be
predicated on expectations of an improved liquidity profile such
that FCF/Debt was expected to remain at least in the low
single-digits along with reduced reliance on revolver borrowings
and proactively addressing upcoming maturities. A demonstrated
ability to win new business with consistent organic sales growth
and EBITDA margins in the low-double digits would also be necessary
for an upgrade.

The ratings could be downgraded if Triumph's liquidity profile were
to weaken including an inability to refinance/extend near-term
principal obligations. The ratings could also be downgraded if the
company is not on a trajectory to restore meaningfully positive
free cash flow or if there are unanticipated large-sized production
rate cuts in any of Triumph's existing platforms, or delays and
cost overages in new programs (particularly the Global 7000/8000
and E-Jet). Expectations of Moody's adjusted Debt-to-EBITDA
remaining above 7.0x beyond FY 2019 could also pressure the rating
downwards.

Triumph designs, engineers, manufactures, repairs, overhauls and
distributes a broad portfolio of aero-structures, aircraft
components, accessories, subassemblies and systems. The company
serves commercial aerospace (57% of sales), military (22%),
business jet (18%) and regional and other markets (3%). Revenues
were approximately $3.4 billion for the twelve months ended June
30, 2017.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Global
Aerospace and Defense Industry published in April 2014.


TRIUMPH GROUP: S&P Rates New $500MM Senior Unsecured Notes 'B-'
---------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings assigned its 'B-' issue-level rating and '5'
recovery rating to Triumph Group Inc.'s proposed $500 million
senior unsecured notes due 2025. SS&P said, "The '5' recovery
rating indicates our expectation for modest (10%-30%; rounded
estimate 20%) recovery in a default scenario. The company plans to
use the proceeds from the new notes to repay the $302.4 million
remaining on its first-lien term loan and $149 million of
outstanding revolver borrowings. The company also plans to amend
its credit facility to reduce the revolver to $800 million from
$850 million."

S&P related, "We also placed our 'CCC+' issue level ratings on
Triumph's existing senior unsecured notes on CreditWatch with
positive implications as we expect to raise the rating to 'B-' when
the transaction closes. We also expect to revise our recovery
rating to '5' (rounded estimate 20%) from '6' (0-10% range; rounded
estimate 0%) at that time due to the lower amount of secured debt.


"Additionally, we affirmed our 'BB-'issue-level rating on the
company's secured credit facility. The '1' recovery rating is
unchanged, indicating our expectation for very high recovery
(90%-100%: rounded estimate 95%) in a default scenario. We expect
to withdraw ratings on the company's first-lien term loan when the
transaction closes and the debt is repaid.

"We recently lowered our corporate credit rating on Triumph to 'B'
from 'BB-', and the current transaction has no impact on the
corporate credit rating. See "Triumph Group Inc. Downgraded Two
Notches To 'B; On Weaker Earnings And Cash Flow Guidance; Outlook
Stable," published on July 27, 2017, for the full rating
rationale."

CREDITWATCH

S&P added, "We expect to resolve the CreditWatch on the issue
ratings on the company's existing unsecured debt when the
transaction closes. We are likely to raise the ratings one notch to
'B-' and revise the recovery rating to '5' from '6' if the
transaction closes on terms substantially similar to those
presented to us. The ratings on the proposed notes are not on
CreditWatch.

RECOVERY ANALYSIS

Key Analytical Factors

Pro forma for the transaction, Triumph's capital structure will
consist of a $800 million secured revolving credit facility, $375
million of senior unsecured notes due 2021, $300 million of senior
notes due 2022, and $500 million of senior unsecured notes due
2025, as well as an accounts receivable (A/R) securitization
facility, capital leases, an equipment leasing facility, and a
small industrial revenue bond. Total unsecured claims include
pension and post retirement obligations. The lower amount of
secured debt will improve recovery prospects for unsecured lenders.


Simulated default assumptions

-- S&P valued the company on a going-concern basis using a 5x
multiple of our projected emergence EBITDA.
-- Other default assumptions include LIBOR rising to 250 basis
points (bps), the revolver is 85% drawn at default, and the A/R
facility is 70% drawn at default.

Simplified Waterfall

-- Emergence EBITDA: $277 million
-- Default year: 2020
-- EBITDA multiple: 5.0x
-- Net enterprise value (after 5% administrative expenses): $1,315
million
-- Priority claims: $160 million
-- Collateral value available to first-lien debt: $1,155 million
-- Estimated first-lien claim: $749.9 million
-- Recovery range: 90%-100% (rounded estimate: 95%)
-- Total value available to unsecured claims: $405 million
-- Total unsecured claims: $1,845 million
-- Recovery range: 10%-30% (rounded estimate: 20%)

any assets sold.

With respect to any and all other tax authorities not enumerated
above, the liens of the Tax Authorities for taxes prior to 2017
will attach to the sale proceeds with the same validity, extent,
and priority as existed on their collateral prior to the sale.

constitute property of the estates of the Debtors, (ii) the Debtors
will be obligated to pay such funds to Alamo to the extent
constituting Alamo Assets and such obligation will be deemed to be
an administrative obligation of the Debtors; and (iii) the Debtors
will and are authorized to pay such amounts to Alamo of such

USS ULTIMATE: Moody's Assigns B3 Corporate Family Rating
--------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a B3 Corporate Family Rating
(CFR) and B3-PD Probability of Default Rating (PDR) to USS Ultimate
Holdings, Inc. ("United Site Services" or "USS," initially Portable
Merger Corporation) following the announcement of its $1.15 billion
leveraged buyout. Portable Merger Corporation is an acquisition
vehicle that will be merged with and into USS Ultimate Holdings,
Inc. upon closing of the transaction, with USS Ultimate Holdings,
Inc. being the surviving entity and obligor under the new capital
structure. At the same time, Moody's assigned a B2 rating to the
company's proposed $475 million senior secured first lien term loan
and a Caa2 rating to the proposed $280 million senior secured
second lien term loan. The rating outlook is stable.

Proceeds from the proposed senior secured term loans, along with a
contribution of new common equity from Platinum Equity ("Sponsor")
and rollover equity from management, will fund the leveraged buyout
of United Site Services from Calera Capital, refinance existing
debt, and pay transaction fees and expenses. In addition, the
company will enter into a new $85 million asset based (ABL)
revolving credit facility (unrated by Moody's), which is expected
to be undrawn at closing.

USS' highly leveraged capital structure, limited operating scale
and revenue concentration in the highly cyclical residential and
commercial construction end markets are key credit factors
negatively affecting the company's ratings. "The proposed LBO will
increase United Site Services' funded debt levels, debt leverage
and annual cash interest burden considerably," stated Moody's
analyst Oleg Markin. "The contemplated transaction more than
doubles the company's funded debt balance to $755 million from
about $368 million as of March 31, 2017 and, as a result, pro forma
debt-to-EBITDA leverage will be initially high at about 7.0 times
(Moody's adjusted and incorporating annualized EBITDA from recent
acquisitions)," added Markin. Additionally, Moody's expects USS'
free cash flow to be only slightly positive over the next 12-18
months given the increase in annual debt service costs and the
company's aggressive acquisition strategy. These factors will limit
the potential for meaningful deleveraging through debt repayment
over the next 12-18 months.

Moody's assigned the following ratings to Portable Merger
Corporation:

-- Corporate Family Rating at B3

-- Probability of Default Rating at B3-PD

-- Proposed $475 million senior secured first lien term loan due
    2024 at B2 LGD3

-- Proposed $280 million senior secured second lien term loan due

    2025 at Caa2 LGD5

-- Outlook at Stable

The assignment of ratings remain subject to Moody's review of the
final terms and conditions of the proposed financing transaction
that is expected to close by end of August 2017. Moody's
anticipates all of the corporate and instrument ratings at USS
Parent Holding Corp. (the predecessor) including the B2 CFR to be
withdrawn upon completion of the proposed transaction and repayment
of existing debt.

RATINGS RATIONALE

The B3 CFR reflects USS' highly leveraged capital structure
following the LBO, its limited operating scale with revenue
concentration in the highly cyclical residential and commercial
construction end markets, and aggressive growth strategies. Moody's
anticipates the company will deleverage from currently elevated
levels as a result of EBITDA growth and to a lesser extent debt
repayment, but debt-to-EBITDA leverage is expected to remain above
6.0 times over the next 12-18 months. Moody's expects the company
to remain acquisitive and pursue tuck-in acquisitions to support
its strategic growth plan. The rating favorably considers United
Site Services' leading market position within a fragmented portable
sanitation and related site service solutions market, and its
offering of a highly essential and critical service to its
customers. The company's long-standing relationships with customers
as indicated by high customer retention rates, and expectation for
favorable conditions in the construction sector over the next 12-18
months are also positive credit considerations. The company's
competitive advantages, high service quality and scalability, are
expected to continue to support its defensible market position
within the portable sanitation market. Moody's projects the company
will generate breakeven to slightly positive free cash flow on an
annual basis given the interest burden and higher capital
expenditure levels due to an enterprise resource planning (ERP)
system implementation in 2018. The low free cash flow and Moody's
expectation that the company will execute on a robust acquisition
pipeline will limit the potential for debt repayment and will
likely lead to an increase in debt over time.

Moody's anticipates in the stable rating outlook that continued
economic growth will lead to top-line growth both organically and
through bolt-on acquisitions over the next 12-24 months, and that
the company will increase profitability as operational improvements
and route density benefits are realized. Moody's also expects in
the stable outlook that the company will maintain adequate
liquidity over the next 12-15 months.

Moody's could upgrade the ratings if debt reduction combined with
sustained earnings growth leads to a material improvement in credit
metrics, such that debt-to-EBITDA leverage is maintained below 6.0
times and EBITDA-Capex/interest expense is above 1.25 times.

The ratings could be downgraded if economic conditions deteriorate,
revenue weakens or profitability declines, leading Moody's to
anticipate low or negative free cash flow on sustained basis. A
downgrade would be warranted if debt-to-EBITDA is sustained above
7.0 times, EBITDA-Capex/interest expense falls below 1.0 time, or
liquidity deteriorates.

Headquartered in Westborough, MA, USS Ultimate Holdings, Inc.
through its subsidiaries is a provider of portable sanitation
units, temporary fencing, storage containers and temporary electric
equipment serving the construction, commercial and industrial,
special event, government agency and other end markets. Following
the completion of the leveraged buyout, USS will be majority owned
by Platinum Equity, with remaining shares held by management. USS
is expected to generate pro forma revenues of approximately $480
million in 2017.

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


VIAWEST INC: S&P Withdraws 'B' CCR on Completion of Peak 10 Deal
----------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings lowered its corporate credit rating on Denver,
Colorado-based ViaWest Inc. to 'B' from 'B+'. S&P said, "At the
same time, we removed the rating from CreditWatch, where we had
placed it with negative implications on June 13, 2017. The outlook
is negative.

"We subsequently withdrew all our ratings on ViaWest."

The rating actions follow the completion of Peak 10's acquisition
of ViaWest, which resulted in the repayment of all of ViaWest's
debt.


VIDEO DISPLAY: Hancock Askew Replaces Carr Riggs as Accountants
---------------------------------------------------------------
Carr, Riggs, & Ingram, LLC, resigned as Video Display Corporation's
independent registered public accounting firm on July 26, 2017.

Carr, Riggs & Ingram, LLC's report on the Company's consolidated
financial statements for the fiscal year ended Feb. 28, 2017, did
not contain an adverse opinion or a disclaimer of opinion, and was
not qualified or modified as to audit scope or accounting
principles.  Their report did contain an explanatory paragraph
addressing going concern uncertainty.  For the fiscal year ended
Feb. 28, 2017, and up to the date of Carr, Riggs, & Ingram, LLC's
resignation, there has been no disagreement between the Company and

On July 28, 2017, Video Display appointed Hancock Askew & Co. LLP
as the Company's independent registered public accounting firm
commencing on July 28, 2017.

The Company said that during its two most recent fiscal years and
through July 28, 2017, the Company did not consult Hancock Askew &
Co. LLP.

said, raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to

W&T OFFSHORE: Posts $33.3 Million Net Income in Second Quarter
--------------------------------------------------------------
W&T Offshore, Inc., reported net income of $33.31 million on $123.3
million of revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2017,
compared to a net loss of $120.9 million on $99.65 million of
revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2016.

For the six months ended June 30, 2017, the Company reported net
income of $57.61 million on $247.7 million of revenues compared to
a net loss of $311.4 million on $177.4 million of revenues for the
same period a year ago.

W&T Offshore reported a net loss of $249.0 million in 2016, a net
loss of $1.04 billion in 2015 and a net loss of $11.66 million in
2014.

As of June 30, 2017, the Company had $874.97 million in total
assets, $1.47 billion in total liabilities and a total
shareholders' deficit of $597.95 million.

Tracy W. Krohn, W&T Offshore's chairman and chief executive
officer, stated, "We are very pleased to be in the final stages of
resolving the matter with the BOEM, which has been a significant
distraction for W&T and our investors for over a year.  We are
generating strong cash flow, solid earnings and very attractive
EBITDA margins, driven by the performance of our high-quality asset
base.

"We have continued to maintain steady production volumes with
modest capital outlays as we successfully executed lower-risk,
high-return projects in our existing fields.  We have also
continued to drive down our operating expenses to the lowest levels
in many years and generated an EBITDA margin of 59%, which is
in-line with the 60-62% EBITDA margins we achieved in 2012-2014 in
a much higher commodity price environment.  Compared to the first
quarter, LOE declined 22% or $8.6 million resulting in higher
adjusted EBITDA margins in the second quarter despite the slightly
lower commodity prices.  While we are hopeful that oil prices will
improve from current levels, we have clearly demonstrated that we
can be profitable in current market conditions.

"So far in the first half of 2017, our operations have primarily
focused on exploiting our Mahogany Field, which continues to
perform exceptionally well and offers substantial upside potential.
As we have continued drilling, the T-sand reservoir continues to
get bigger just like we experienced with the prolific P-sand.  In
the second half of the year, we will progress our work plan at
Mahogany which includes the A-17 well that is also targeting the
T-sand, followed by the A-5 ST.  Workovers and recompletions will
also be performed on wells at Mahogany as time permits.  We also
have an exploratory well that will spud shortly to drill a low risk
undrilled fault block in our SS300 field and exploratory wells
planned at Main Pass 286 and South Timbalier 224 both of which are
open water locations.  New wells are also planned for Ewing Banks
910 field and Viosca Knoll 823 Virgo field towards the end of this
year and that will carry over into what should be a busy 2018,"
concluded Mr. Krohn.

Net cash provided by operating activities in the first six months
of 2017 was $65.6 million compared to net cash used by operating
activities of $11.3 million for the same period in 2016.  Cash
flows from operating activities before changes in working capital,
insurance reimbursements, escrow deposits and ARO settlements were
$112.3 million in the first half of 2017, compared to $6.5 million
over the same period in 2016.  The increase in cash flows was
primarily due to higher realized prices for all our commodities -
oil, NGLs and natural gas, lower operating costs and lower interest
payments.  The Company's combined average realized sales price per
Boe increased 41.8%, which caused total revenues to increase $70.3
million.  LOE decreased $9.4 million, G&A decreased $2.9 million
and interest expense (the portion of interest that is a part of
operating activities and not financing activities) decreased $34.4
million. Other items affecting operating cash flows for the six
months ended June 30, 2017, included insurance reimbursements of
$30.1 million, changes in receivables, accounts payable and accrued
liabilities of $12.3 million, partially offset by ARO expenditures
of $36.0 million and a deposit with the court related to the Apache
matter of $49.5 million.

WEATHERFORD INTERNATIONAL: Incurs $171 Million Net Loss in Q2
-------------------------------------------------------------
Weatherford International plc reported a net loss attributable to
the Company of $171 million on $1.36 billion of total net revenues
for the three months ended June 30, 2017, compared to a net loss
attributable to the Company of $565 million on $1.40 billion of
total net revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2016.

For the six months ended June 30, 2017, the Company reported a net
loss attributable to the Company of $619 million on $2.74 billion
of total net revenues compared to a net loss attributable to the
Company of $1.06 billion on $2.98 billion of total net revenues for
the same period during the prior year.

During the second quarter, Weatherford determined that the expected
duration to collect revenue from its largest customer in Venezuela
significantly exceeded the contractual payment terms and represents
an implied financing arrangement.  Accordingly, the Company
modified its revenue recognition with this customer in the second
quarter to record a discount reflecting the time value of money and
accreting the discount as interest income over the expected
collection period using the effective interest method. The impact
of this change on the second quarter reduced revenue and increased
operating loss by $42 million and reduced net income by $35 million
($0.04 diluted net loss per share).  Absent this adjustment,
sequential revenue improved 1% and International revenue improved
3%.

Mark A. McCollum, president and chief executive officer, commented,
"I am pleased that our team has delivered a solid second quarter
performance.  We generated significantly higher incrementals,
improved our cash flow compared to the previous quarter and
provided our customers with nearly flawless service quality
execution.  Looking forward, I see a lot of opportunities for
further performance improvements, and we have initiated several
projects to unlock and accelerate these opportunities to drive
stronger financial results and meaningfully reduce our debt and
increase market share.  We have great technology, a global
presence, outstanding collaborative customer relationships and a
high-caliber workforce, allowing us to be a partner of choice for
our customers in many basins around the world."

McCollum continued, "The compelling strength of our fundamental
qualities suggests an attractive upside and, by better aligning our
strengths, we will soon have a more focused and effective
organization, forging a solid path towards improving returns and
renewing shareholder trust and value."

"We believe our industry will remain range bound within this
'medium-for-longer' price level for some time, until production
growth is moderated.  In the interim, we expect continuous
short-term cyclical fluctuations.  Adapting to this likely new
paradigm, our industry must transform itself.  We will continue to
push innovation, both from a technical and a business model
perspective, and we will deliver operational excellence to bring
the cost of production down to a point at which all participants
can make a decent return.

To improve our position and drive better results, there are plenty
of things well within our ability to execute.  We will accelerate
our mission to become a more focused and efficient company, and we
are committed to a path of greater profitability, reliability and
consistency within our organization.  Ensuring flawless execution,
discipline and accountability will be at the center of what we do.
As we move forward toward reliable and sustainable performance,
Weatherford will achieve new levels of success for our employees,
customers and shareholders."

Net cash used in operating activities was $62 million for the
second quarter of 2017, including $107 million of debt interest
payments, $40 million of cash severance and restructuring costs,
and $30 million of SEC legal settlement costs, partially offset by
$93 million of positive cash inflows from collection of other
receivables, insurance proceeds and favorable legal settlements.
Capital expenditures of $42 million increased slightly by $2
million or 5% sequentially, and increased $11 million or 35% from
the same quarter in the prior year.  The Company remains in
compliance with its financial covenants as defined in its revolving
and secured term loan credit facilities as of June 30, 2017.  Based
on its current financial projections, the Company believes it will
continue to remain in compliance with these covenants for the
remainder of 2017.

WEATHERFORD INTERNATIONAL: Incurs $171M Net Loss in 2nd Quarter
---------------------------------------------------------------
Weatherford International public limited company filed with the
Securities and Exchange Commission its quarterly report on Form
10-Q disclosing a net loss attributable to the Company of $171
million on $1.36 billion of total revenues for the three months
ended June 30, 2017, compared to a net loss attributable to the
Company of $565 million on $1.40 billion of total revenues for the
three months ended June 30, 2016.

For the six months ended June 30, 2017, the Company reported a net
loss attributable to the Company of $619 million on $2.74 billion
of total revenues compared to a net loss attributable to the
Company of $1.06 billion on $2.98 billion of total revenues for the
six months ended June 30, 2016.

As of June 30, 2017, Weatherford had $12.05 billion in total
assets, $10.52 billion in total liabilities and $1.52 billion in
total shareholders' equity.

At June 30, 2017, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $584
million compared to $1 billion at Dec. 31, 2016.

For the six months of 2017, cash used in operating activities was
$241 million compared to cash used in operating activities of $339
million in the six months of 2016.  The improvement in operating
cash used in 2017 compared to 2016 was primarily attributable to a
decline in operating loss due to cost reduction initiatives and
improved operating margins.

In the first six months of 2017, the primary drivers of the
Company's investing cash flow activities are capital expenditures
for property, plant and equipment and the purchase of assets held
for sale. Capital expenditures were $82 million and $74 million for
the six months of 2017 and 2016, respectively.  The amount the
Company spends for capital expenditures varies each year and is
based on the types of contracts it enters into, its asset
availability and its expectations with respect to industry activity
levels in the following year.  In addition, the Company purchased
assets held for sale of $243 million related to previously leased
pressure pumping equipment.  Investing activities in 2017 also
include cash proceeds of $25 million from the disposition of
assets, partially offset by cash paid of $9 million to acquire
intellectual property and other intangibles and $5 million related
to the purchase of held to maturity bonds.

In the first six months of 2016, the Company received $30 million
of insurance proceeds from the casualty loss of a rig in Kuwait and
$16 million from the disposition of assets.  In the second quarter
of 2016, the Company paid $20 million for a final working capital
adjustment related to the 2014 sale of our engineered chemistry and
Integrity drilling fluids businesses and purchased $8 million of
intellectual property and other intangibles.

In the second quarter of 2017, the Company received proceeds, net
of underwriting fees, of $251 million from the issuance of $250
million, aggregate principal amount of its 9.875% senior notes due
in 2024 compared to net proceeds of $3.2 billion received in the
second quarter of 2016 from the issuance of a series of offerings,
including $1.265 billion aggregate principal amount of our 5.875%
exchangeable senior notes, $750 million aggregate principal amount
of our 7.75% senior notes, $750 million aggregate principal amount
of our 8.25% senior notes and a $500 million secured term loan.

Long-term debt repayments in the first six months of 2017 were $36
million compared to approximately $1.9 billion in the first six
months of 2016.  The long-term debt repayments in 2016 were paid
with the majority of the proceeds from the issuance of $3.2 billion
in debt, mentioned previously, to fund a tender offer to buy back
our 6.35% senior notes, 6.00% senior notes, 9.625% senior notes and
5.125% senior notes with a principal balance of approximately $1.9
billion.  The Company recognized a cash loss of $78 million on the
tender offer buyback transaction.

Short-term debt repayments were $96 million in the first six months
of 2017 compared to $1.4 billion in the first six months of 2016.
The short-term debt repayments in the first six months of 2017 were
primarily for the repayment of the Company's 6.35% senior notes
with a principal balance of $88 million.  The short-term debt
repayments in the first six months of 2016 were primarily for the
repayment of borrowings under the Company's credit facility and
repayment of its 5.50% senior notes with a principal balance of
$350 million.

In the first six months of 2016, the Company received net proceeds
of $623 million from the issuance of 115 million ordinary shares of
the Company.

[*] B3 Negative and Lower Corp Ratings List Drops Again in July
---------------------------------------------------------------
The number of companies on its B3 Negative and Lower Corporate
Ratings List declined again by the end of July, to 214 from 226 in
June, Moody's Investors Service says in a new report. More than a
year of monthly decreases in the agency's list of lower-rated
companies have brought it to its lowest tally since September
2015.

"In July, Moody's B3 Negative and Lower list declined as a result
of an almost even mix of rating upgrades or outlook revisions,
defaults and rating withdrawals unrelated to defaults, and no
additions to the list due to new rating downgrades," said Moody's
Associate Analyst Julia Chursin. "With benign rating actions now
almost on par with the number of registered defaults, the latest
drop in the list's size points to improving speculative-grade
credit quality."

Companies from the oil and gas industry sector still make up the
largest chunk of Moody's list, at 23%, Chursin says. This indicates
that energy prices have not recovered sufficiently to improve these
firms' credit profiles and allow these firms to exit the list via
rating upgrades.

Meanwhile, in terms of Moody's broader portfolio of
speculative-grade companies, the aircraft and aerospace sector has
the highest percentage of companies on the B3 negative and lower
list, at 46%, followed by oil and gas, at 33%. Commodity-related
sectors saw the largest yearly percentage decrease, signaling some
credit improvement among these companies, with the majority of
those with the weakest credit profiles having already defaulted.


[*] PBGC's Multiemployer Insurance Program Likely Insolvent by 2025
-------------------------------------------------------------------
The insurance program for multiemployer pension plans, which covers
more than 10 million Americans, is likely to run out of money by
the end of 2025 according to the Pension Benefit Guaranty
Corporation's FY 2016 Projections Report.

Projections for PBGC's insurance program for single-employer
pension plans, which covers about 28 million people, show that its
financial condition is likely to continue to improve.  The program
is highly unlikely to run out of money in the next 10 years, and is
likely to eliminate its deficit within the next three to seven
years.

The Projections Report is PBGC's annual actuarial evaluation of its
future operations and financial status.  The report provides a
range of estimates of the future status of insured pension plans
and their effect on PBGC's financial condition, based on hundreds
of different economic scenarios.

Multiemployer Projections Show Need for Program Changes

Absent changes in law or additional resources, this year's report
projects that the Multiemployer Program's FY 2016 deficit of $59
billion will increase, with the average projected deficit (looking
across multiple economic scenarios) rising to almost $80 billion
(in nominal dollars) for FY 2026.

Under the Multiemployer Pension Reform Act of 2014, multiemployer
plans that project insolvency within the next 20 years must notify
participants that the plan is running out of money.

Over 1.2 million people are now in about 100 "critical and
declining" plans.  As these plans become insolvent, participants'
benefits will be reduced to the amounts guaranteed by the PBGC
under current law.  In a recent insolvency, this resulted in
benefit cuts of more than half for over 40 percent of the plan's
participants.

The increasing demand for financial assistance from insolvent plans
will accelerate the depletion of PBGC's Multiemployer Program
assets.  The multiemployer insurance program is in serious trouble
and is likely to run out of money by the end of fiscal 2025.  If
that happens, the people who rely on PBGC guarantees will receive
only a very small percent of current guarantees -- most
participants would receive less than $2,000 a year and in many
cases, much less.

The timing of the Multiemployer Program's insolvency is uncertain
as it depends on when the most troubled plans run out of money. The
date a specific plan is projected to run out of funds depends upon
how the pension plan investments perform and on other decisions
made by the plan's trustees and participants.  Most of the risk of
the program running out of money falls during the years 2024 to
2026.  It is more likely than not that the Multiemployer Program
will deplete its assets by the end of fiscal 2025.  The risk of
program insolvency grows rapidly after 2025, exceeding 99 percent
by 2036.

The President's FY 2018 Budget contains a proposal to shore up the
PBGC multiemployer fund.  The Budget proposes to create a new
variable rate premium and an exit premium in the multiemployer
program, estimated to raise an additional $16 billion in premium
revenue over the ten-year budget window.

Single-Employer Program Continues Trend of Likely Improvement

The financial condition of PBGC's insurance program for
single-employer plans remains likely to improve over the next
decade.  Under current estimates, the program's actual FY 2016
deficit of $21 billion likely will turn to a surplus by the end of
fiscal 2022.

This year's report shows some acceleration in the improving trend
noted in last year's report.  But a wide range of outcomes remains
possible, ranging from large deficits to surpluses.

                    About PBGC and the Report

PBGC protects the pension benefits of nearly 40 million Americans
in private-sector pension plans.  The agency pays the benefits of
about 1.5 million people in failed pension plans.  PBGC receives no
taxpayer dollars.  Its operations are financed by insurance
premiums, investment income, and, for the single-employer program,
assets and recoveries from failed single-employer plans.

Each year PBGC issues its Projections Report, as required by the
Employee Retirement Income Security Act.  The report is PBGC's
actuarial evaluation of its future operations and financial status.
To make its projections, PBGC uses separate Pension Insurance
Modeling Systems for single-employer and multiemployer plans.  Each
modeling system runs many simulations drawn from hundreds of
economic scenarios to derive a range of possible future outcomes.
No single projection, however, represents expected results under
either program.

Monday's edition of the TCR delivers a list of indicative prices
for bond issues that reportedly trade well below par.  Prices are
obtained by TCR editors from a variety of outside sources during
the prior week we think are reliable.  Those sources may not,
however, be complete or accurate.  The Monday Bond Pricing table
is compiled on the Friday prior to publication.  Prices reported
are not intended to reflect actual trades.  Prices for actual
trades are probably different.  Our objective is to share
information, not make markets in publicly traded securities.
Nothing in the TCR constitutes an offer or solicitation to buy or
sell any security of any kind.  It is likely that some entity
affiliated with a TCR editor holds some position in the issuers
public debt and equity securities about which we report.

Each Tuesday edition of the TCR contains a list of companies with
insolvent balance sheets whose shares trade higher than $3 per
share in public markets.  At first glance, this list may look like
the definitive compilation of stocks that are ideal to sell short.
Don't be fooled.  Assets, for example, reported at historical cost
net of depreciation may understate the true value of a firm's
assets.  A company may establish reserves on its balance sheet for
liabilities that may never materialize.  The prices at which
equity securities trade in public market are determined by more
than a balance sheet solvency test.

On Thursdays, the TCR delivers a list of recently filed
Chapter 11 cases involving less than $1,000,000 in assets and
liabilities delivered to nation's bankruptcy courts.  The list
includes links to freely downloadable images of these small-dollar
petitions in Acrobat PDF format.

Each Friday's edition of the TCR includes a review about a book of
interest to troubled company professionals.  All titles are
available at your local bookstore or through Amazon.com.  Go to
http://www.bankrupt.com/books/to order any title today.

Monthly Operating Reports are summarized in every Saturday edition
of the TCR.

The Sunday TCR delivers securitization rating news from the week
then-ending.

TCR subscribers have free access to our on-line news archive.
Point your Web browser to http://TCRresources.bankrupt.com/and use
the e-mail address to which your TCR is delivered to login.
