[] Chapter 11 Filings Down in Third Quarter 2017, The Deal Says

                            *********

1776 AMERICAN: Exclusive Plan Filing Deadline Moved to November 27
------------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Karen K. Brown of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of Texas extended the exclusive period during which only
1776 American Property IV, LLC, and its debtor-affiliates may file
a plan of reorganization on or before November 27, 2017.

The Court said the exclusive period is automatically extended for
60 days to allow the Debtors to solicit and obtain acceptance of
their respective plans.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on August 11, the
Debtors asked the Court to extend their exclusivity periods saying
that the terms of any plan of reorganization filed by the Debtors
will be dependent on resolution of a motion to estimate claim,
which would determine if any liability is owed to Blavesco, Ltd.
and Heather Carlile with respect to a state court litigation.

On July 18, 2017, the Debtors filed their objections to the proofs
of claims filed by Blavesco, Ltd., Michael Stein and Heather
Carlile.  The State Court Litigation related to those claims was
originally scheduled for trial in August 2017.  However, on June
30, 2017, the Houston 1st Court of Appeals referred the primary
portion of the lawsuit to mandatory arbitration.  The Texas State
Court has not reset the case for trial related to the claims that
were not referred to arbitration.

The Disputed Claims are subject a motion to estimate filed March
18, 2017.  The Motion is currently pending before the Bankruptcy
Court.  The Debtors said the claims alleged by the Disputed
Claimants in the litigation are highly disputed, and allowance of
those claims could impact any plan the Debtors file.  The Debtors
assured the Court that they are working with the Disputed Claimants
towards a potential resolution of the claims.

However, the Debtors' exclusivity period to file a plan will expire
prior to resolution of the estimation motion, the claim objections
or trial in the Texas state court.  The Debtors warned that
termination of exclusivity could result in competing plans, undue
expense, and no corresponding benefit to the unsecured creditors.

              About 1776 American Properties IV

1776 American Properties IV LLC and its 12 affiliates sought
protection under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code (Bankr. S.D.
Tex. Lead Case No. 17-30422) on Jan. 27, 2017.  The petitions were
signed by Jeff Fisher, its director.

1776 American Properties IV estimated assets of $1 million to $10
million and liabilities of less than $50,000.

The cases are assigned to Judge Karen K. Brown.

Josh T. Judd, Esq., at Andrews Myers PC, serves as the Debtors'
bankruptcy counsel.

No trustee or examiner has been appointed in the bankruptcy cases
and no official committee of unsecured creditors has been
established.

On Sept. 11, 2017, Judge Gary Spraker of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
in Anchorage approved the sale of Alaska Dispatch News to the
Binkley family for a $1 million credit bid.  No other bidder came
forward.

"The balance of the purchase price is zero," U.S. Bankruptcy Court
Judge Gary Spraker said in an order, according to Alaska Dispatch
News' own reporting.

The Alaska Dispatch News report also noted that the buyer is the
Binkley Co. LLC made up of siblings Ryan Binkley, Wade Binkley,
James Binkley and Kai Binkley Sims. The group worked with Jason
Evans, owner of Alaska Media LLC, though the proposed sale
agreement lists only the Binkley Co. as buyer.

According to a Reuters report, the newspaper's previous owner,
Alice Rogoff, who bought it three years ago for $34 million, urged
the Court to approve the sale.

The sale has closed.

APPVION INC: Moody's Lowers PDR to D-PD Amid Bankr. Filing
----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded Appvion Inc.'s probability of
default rating (PDR) to D-PD from Caa1-PD, the corporate family
rating (CFR) to Ca from Caa1, second lien senior secured notes to
Ca from Caa2 and the revolving credit facility and first-lien term
loan to Caa2 from B1. The speculative grade liquidity rating
remains unchanged at SGL-4. The rating outlook was changed to
stable from negative. Subsequent to actions, all ratings of Appvion
will be withdrawn as the company has entered voluntary bankruptcy
proceedings.

Downgrades:

Issuer: Appvion, Inc.

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

-- Corporate Family Rating, Downgraded to Ca from Caa1

-- Senior Secured Bank Credit Facility, Downgraded to Caa2(LGD2)
    from B1(LGD2)

-- Senior Secured Regular Bond/Debenture, Downgraded to Ca(LGD4)
    from Caa2(LGD4)

Outlook Actions:

Issuer: Appvion, Inc.

-- Outlook, Changed To Stable From Negative

RATINGS RATIONALE

The downgrade of the PDR to D-PD is a result of the company's
bankruptcy court filing. The downgrade of the CFR to Ca, as well as
the downgrade of the second lien senior secured notes to Ca (about
$250 million outstanding as of July 2, 2017) and revolving credit
facility and first-lien term loan to Caa2 (about $200 million
outstanding as of July 2, 2017), reflect Moody's expectation of
about a 50% recovery on the corporate family's obligations, and the
relative ranking positions of various creditors, with the
junior-ranking second lien lenders in particular suffering material
loss absorption.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Global Paper
and Forest Products Industry published in October 2013.

Appvion Inc., headquartered in Appleton, Wisconsin, manufactures
specialty coated paper products, including carbonless papers
(slightly more than 50% of EBITDA) and thermal papers. LTM sales
ending July 2017 were about $667 million.


APPVION INC: S&P Downgrades CCR to 'D' Amid Bankruptcy Filing
-------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings lowered its corporate credit rating on coated
paper manufacturer Appvion Inc. to 'D' from 'CCC'.

S&P said, "In addition, we lowered the issue-level rating on the
company's first-lien term loan to 'D' from 'B-'. The recovery
rating on the first-lien term loan is '1', indicating our
expectation for very high (90%-100%; rounded estimate: 90%)
recovery at the time of the chapter 11 filing. We also lowered the
issue-level rating on the company's second-lien secured notes to
'D' from 'CC'. The recovery rating on the second-lien secured notes
is '6', indicating our expectation for negligible (0%-10%; rounded
estimate: 0%) recovery at the time of the bankruptcy filing.

"At the same time, we also removed all the ratings from
CreditWatch, where they were placed with developing implications on
Aug. 30, 2017."

On Oct. 1, 2017, Appvion Inc. announced that it had filed for
Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection. In addition, the company has
announced that it has obtained a commitment for $85 million in new
debtor-in-possession (DIP) financing from a group of its first-lien
lenders. S&P will reassess its recovery ratings on Appvion's
prepetition debt in light of the bankruptcy filing, including the
potential impact of the proposed DIP financing.

Arconic common stock on Oct. 2, 2017 (assuming no further early
conversions).  As of July 28, 2017, Arconic had 441,030,999 shares

dividend payment will be made in the customary manner.

Upon conversion, the Class B preferred stock and depositary shares

ASTORIA FINANCIAL: Moody's Confirms Ba2 Preferred Stock Rating
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service confirmed all the ratings of Astoria
Financial Corporation and its lead bank subsidiary, Astoria Bank
(collectively Astoria). The ratings of Astoria Financial
Corporation include its senior unsecured and issuer ratings of Baa3
and its non-cumulative preferred stock rating of Ba2 (hyb). The
ratings and assessments of Astoria Bank include its long-term bank
deposit ratings of A3, its issuer rating of Baa3, its standalone
baseline credit assessment (BCA) and adjusted BCA of baa2, and its
long-term Counterparty Risk (CR) Assessment of Baa1(cr). The bank's
short-term deposit rating of Prime-2 and short-term CR assessment
of Prime-2(cr), which were not on review, were both affirmed.

These actions conclude the review for downgrade initiated on 8
March 2017 following the announcement of Sterling Bancorp's
(Sterling, unrated) intent to acquire Astoria. The actions are in
response to the completion of the acquisition on October 2, 2017.
All of Astoria's obligations will be assumed by Sterling.

Following the ratings actions, Moody's will withdraw all of
Astoria's ratings except for the senior unsecured debt rating of
Astoria Financial Corporation, which will remain outstanding.

RATINGS RATIONALE

Moody's said that Astoria's ratings confirmation reflects the
profitability benefits for Astoria that derive from being housed in
a more diversified bank when combined with Sterling and the
better-than-expected tangible capital ratios at Sterling than when
the acquisition was announced.

Astoria had appreciably higher capital ratios than Sterling. At 30
June 2017, Moody's tangible common equity (TCE)/risk-weighted
assets (RWA) ratio for Astoria was 18.4% compared to Sterling's
TCE/RWA ratio of 10.18%. However, Moody's expects the combined
bank's TCE/RWA ratio to be in the range of 11% and 12% at closing
and during the next two years. Sterling's higher capital ratio will
be supported by stronger earnings generation and Sterling's modest
dividend payout.

Regarding profitability, Moody's expects returns to benefit from
Sterling's more diversified and higher yielding commercial loan mix
and the ability to capture fee income across a broader range of
asset classes. The Sterling acquisition also offers the ability to
cut costs by reducing branches and consolidating operational
systems within its New York footprint. Moody's also highlighted
both banks' solid core deposit funding and stable liquidity as
additional support to the ratings confirmation.

Regarding asset quality, Moody's noted a mixed story.
Non-performing loans and charge-offs are currently relatively low
at both banks. However, Sterling has grown rapidly during the past
five years, quadrupling in size, mainly by acquiring banks and loan
portfolios. Furthermore, Sterling has shifted its lending mix
towards more commercial and industrial and middle market lending,
and asset- based lending. As a result, its lending relationships
are not seasoned and are less predictable in terms of asset quality
performance when the cycle turns.

Moody's added that despite the diversification provided by the
addition of commercial loans to the loan mix, commercial real
estate lending is 300% of tangible common equity, which is a high
ratio and a credit negative.

FACTORS THAT COULD LEAD TO AN UPGRADE

Upward ratings movement is currently limited by the high growth
profile of the combined bank. However, should asset quality
performance prove sustainable, leading to stronger profitability,
this could lead to upward ratings pressure.

FACTORS THAT COULD LEAD TO A DOWNGRADE

A downgrade of the senior debt could occur if capitalization or
profitability metrics fall below expected levels.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Banks published
in September 2017.


ATLANTIC POWER: Moody's Hikes Corporate Family Rating to Ba3
------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service upgraded Atlantic Power Corporation's
Corporate Family Rating (CFR) to Ba3 from B1 and the senior secured
term loan and revolving credit facilities at APLP Holdings Limited
Partnership's (APLP Holdings) to Ba2 from Ba3. At the same time,
Moody's has affirmed Atlantic Power's speculative grade liquidity
rating of SGL-2. The outlook has been revised to stable from
positive.

Upgrades:

Issuer: APLP Holdings Limited Partnership

-- Senior Secured Bank Credit Facility, Upgraded to Ba2(LGD3)
    from Ba3(LGD3)

Issuer: Atlantic Power Corporation

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

-- Corporate Family Rating, Upgraded to Ba3 from B1

Outlook Actions:

Issuer: APLP Holdings Limited Partnership

-- Outlook, Changed To Stable From Positive

Issuer: Atlantic Power Corporation

-- Outlook, Changed To Stable From Positive

Affirmations:

Issuer: Atlantic Power Corporation

-- Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating, Affirmed SGL-2

RATINGS RATIONALE

The upgrade reflects company's continued effort to improve its
credit metrics through cost cutting and debt reduction. "Atlantic
Power's cash flow coverage ratio has improved to around 10.4% for
last twelve months through the second quarter of 2017", said Toby
Shea, Vice President -- Senior Credit Officer "and Moody's see
further improvements going forward based on continued debt
reduction."

Atlantic Power is a relatively small independent power producer
with about 1,500 MW of net generation capacity. The company
generates stable, contracted cash flows from 23 projects located
across the US and Canada. Most of the projects have been in
existence for more than a decade and their aggregate contracted
cash flow is expected to decline somewhat over the next few years
as the initial terms of their power purchase agreements expire,
with a more substantial drop off starting in 2023. However, Moody's
expects the decline in cash flow to be largely offset by lower debt
levels, which will help to maintain and potentially improve
coverage levels.

The company remains highly leveraged against its cash flows with
CFO Pre-WC (cash flow from operation pre-working capital) to debt
projected to be around 10% to 12% from 2017 through 2019. However,
this is a significant improvement compared to the CFO Pre-WC to
debt ratios of 6.3% in 2015 and 7.1% in 2016.

APLP Holding's $587 million term loan, which is rated one notch
above the CFR at Ba2, benefits from a security interest in most of
the projects and a greater of 50% cash flow sweep or target debt
balance that should pay off most of the term loan balance over the
next six years.

Liquidity

Atlantic Power has good liquidity to meet the needs of its
operations and debt service obligations as is indicated by its
speculative grade liquidity rating of SGL-2. The company is
expected to generate more than $100 million of annual cash flow, on
average over the next six years, available for the cash sweep under
APLP Holdings' term loan.

Atlantic Power has access to a $200 million revolving credit
facility and has $122 million available as end of June 2017. The
revolving credit facility, which has the same collateral and
security as the $587 million term loan, will expire in 2021.

Atlantic Power is currently using $77.2 million of the credit
facility to support letters of credit and a 6 month debt service
reserve fund in favor of the $587 million term loan.

Atlantic Power's upcoming maturities include $60 million of project
debt at its Piedmont project in 2018 and $103 million of
convertible debt at the holding company due in 2019.

Rating Outlook

The stable outlook reflects the reliability and consistency of the
contracted cash flows from its portfolio of 23 power projects,
improving credit metrics, coupled with an expected declining debt
balance due to debt amortization at APLP Holdings as well as at
some of the projects.

Factors that Could Lead to an Upgrade

Upward rating pressure could result from the CFO pre-W/C to debt
ratio increasing to around the 15% or above range on a sustained
basis with the continuation of its credit supportive financial
policy.

Factors that Could Lead to a Downgrade

Atlantic Power could be downgraded if cash flow deteriorates and
the CFO pre-W/C to debt ratio falls into the single digits or the
company finds itself in a cash flow deficit position after paying
its debt service.

APLP Holdings is an independent power producer and a subsidiary of
Atlantic Power Corporation, headquartered in Dedham,
Massachusetts.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Unregulated
Utilities and Unregulated Power Companies published in May 2017.

Debtor's cash generated from its ongoing business operations.

Class 8 consists of all Unsecured Claims.  Upon the Effective Date
of the Plan, the Debtor will cause payment representing a 5%

BEACON ROOFING: Moody's Confirms B1 CFR Amid Allied Building Deal
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service confirmed Beacon Roofing Supply, Inc.'s
B1 Corporate Family Rating and B1-PD Probability of Default Rating
following company's previous announcement that it is acquiring
Allied Building Products Corp., scheduled to close in early January
2018. In related rating actions, Moody's assigned a B1 rating to
the company's secured term loan due 2025 and a B3 rating its senior
unsecured notes due 2025. Proceeds from debt and cash on hand from
equity issuances will be used to acquire Allied, and to repay
Beacon's existing senior secured term loan maturing 2022, at which
time the rating will be withdrawn. The B3 rating assigned to the
existing senior unsecured notes due 2023 is confirmed as well.
Beacon's SGL-2 Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating is unchanged. The
rating outlook is stable. This concludes the review Moody's
initiated on August 24, 2017.

Beacon is acquiring Allied, a national distributor of exterior and
interior products with revenues of about $2.6 billion, from CRH
plc, a global diversified building materials group, for
approximately $2.6 billion. On a pro forma basis, the combined
company will have about $6.8 billion in sales, market expansion in
New York, New Jersey, and upper Midwest, and new products including
wallboard and suspended ceiling systems.

Beacon's new capital structure will consist of a $1.3 billion
asset-based senior secured revolving credit facility expiring 2023
(unrated), $970 million senior secured term loan, $1.6 billion of
senior unsecured notes, and approximately $40 million in capital
leases. Beacon also issued $400 million, net of convertible
preferred equity purchased by an affiliate of private-equity firm
Clayton, Dubilier & Rice, and raised $345 million from issuing new
equity in form of common stock.

The following ratings are affected by this action:

Corporate Family Rating, confirmed at B1

Probability of Default Rating, confirmed at B1-PD

Senior Secured Term Loan B due 2022, confirmed at B2 (LGD4)

Senior Unsecured Notes due 2023, confirmed at B3 (LGD5)

Senior Secured Term Loan B due 2025, assigned at B1 (LGD3)

Senior Unsecured Notes due 2025, assigned at B3 (LGD5)

Outlook, changed to Stable from Rating Under Review

RATINGS RATIONALE

The B1 CFR remains appropriate at this time since Moody's expects
improving debt credit metrics due to a combination of better
earnings from volume growth, operating leverage and synergy
savings. Moody's projects Beacon's revenues growing over next 12 to
18 months after closing on the purchase of Allied to about $7.6
billion from $6.8 billion pro-forma through June 30, 2017 due to
end market demand, and adjusted debt leverage trending towards
4.25x by mid-2019 from 5.4x revised pro-forma at 3Q17. Revised
pro-forma ratios are better than previously estimated in Moody's
August 24 press release. Moody's now includes operating lease
adjustments for Allied's rental payments, Beacon's equity issuance,
which raised an additional $345 million, and some synergies. Total
adjusted balance sheet debt is about $3.6 billion pro forma at
3Q17. Beacon will use approximately $230 million of equity proceeds
for the acquisition of Allied, $100 million to reduce the amount of
issued convertible preferred shares, which Moody's views as equity,
and balance to pay related fees and expenses. Adjusted interest
coverage, measured as EBITA-to-interest expense, will approach
3.75x over Moody's time horizon. Moody's forward views includes
repayment of debt from free cash flow. All ratios incorporate
Moody's standard adjustments. Additionally, Beacon's good liquidity
profile characterized by free cash flow generation and revolver
availability is a credit enhancer, giving it financial flexibility
to contend with Allied's integration and achieving cost synergies
as the company de-levers. Beyond manageable term loan amortization
of $9.7 million, Beacon has an extended maturity profile with
nearest maturities in early 2023 when its revolving credit facility
expires and in late 2023 when $300 million of senior unsecured
notes mature.

Supporting B1 CFR is Beacon's business profile as one of the
largest rated domestic wholesale distributor of roofing supplies,
wallboard, and ceiling systems, giving Beacon considerable pricing
power with both manufacturers and end users. A national footprint
with expansion in Northeast and Midwest, gives the company ability
to absorb shocks associated with regional weakness, and enables
Beacon to manage potential volatility in annual storm-related
demand. Roofing repair, representing about 75% of pro forma
revenues, is an ongoing strength in the repair and remodeling
sector. Due to its nondiscretionary nature, roofing repair products
exhibit significantly less demand volatility than other building
products. Sustained strength in US residential construction
supports growth as well. Moody's projects new housing starts could
reach 1.280 million in 2018, up 6.2% from Moody's forecasts of
1.205 million in 2017, and maintains a positive outlook for the
domestic homebuilding industry.

However, risks remain. Integration of Allied may not proceed as
quickly as planned, especially as Beacon focuses on a "hub and
spoke" business model, delaying synergies and resulting cash flows.
Additionally, Beacon may redeploy generated cash from debt
reduction to other uses. Paying dividends to convertible preferred
shareholders or buying back preferred shares would delay
deleveraging targets and potentially negatively impacting ratings.
Intense competition creates long-term uncertainty. US private
construction is a cyclical industry, which in an economic downturn
would weaken cash flows and debt-service capabilities.

Beacon's SGL-2 Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating reflects Moody's
views the company will maintain a good liquidity profile over 12
months following its acquisition of Allied, generating positive
free cash flow and having more than sufficient revolver
availability supporting seasonal demands for working capital needs
and capital expenditures.

The stable rating outlook reflects Moody's expectations that
Beacon's credit profile such as leverage remaining below 5.0x will
remain supportive of its B1 CFR over 12 to 18 months after
acquiring Allied.

Positive rating action is unlikely over the intermediate term.
Longer term, an upgrade could result from:

* Debt-to-EBITDA sustained below 4.0x

* Substantial free cash flow generation resulting in permanent debt
reduction

* Sustained organic growth

* An improved liquidity profile

Negative rating will ensue if Beacon performs below Moody's
expectations, resulting in the following credit metrics (ratios
include Moody's standard adjustments) and characteristics:

* Debt-to-EBITDA sustained above 5.5x

* EBITA-to-interest expense remains below 2.0x

* Significant deterioration in the company's liquidity profile

* Larger-than-projected shareholder distributions/repurchases

* Additional large debt-financed acquisitions

B1 rating assigned to the $970 million senior secured term loan due
2025, same rating as CFR, results from its priority of payment
relative to $1.6 billion in more junior capital. The term loan is
secured by a first lien on company's domestic non-current assets
and any assets not pledged to the revolver. It also has a second
lien on the assets securing the revolver. The value of the tangible
assets comprising the first lien is a fraction of the amount owed,
resulting in a lower recovery relative to the asset-based credit
facilities. Even though the term loan also has a second-priority
security interest in current assets, Moody's believes the benefits
from the residual value of the second-lien collateral will be
minimal in a distressed scenario.

B3 ratings assigned to Beacon's $300 million senior unsecured notes
due 2023 and its $1.3 billion senior unsecured notes due 2025, two
notches below the CFR, results from their effective subordination
to the company's bank debt. These notes are pari-passu to each
other and are in a first-loss position in a recovery scenario
relative to Beacon's secured debt.

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

Beacon Roofing Supply, Inc., headquartered in Herndon, VA, upon
closing the acquisition of Allied Building Products Corp., will be
one of the largest North American building materials distributors
of roofing supplies and other exterior products, and interior
products such as wallboard and suspended ceiling systems. Pro forma
revenues for the 12 months through June 30, 2017 totaled
approximately $6.8 billion.


BELK INC: Bank Debt Trades at 16% Off

loan is one of the biggest gainers and losers among 247 widely
quoted syndicated loans with five or more bids in secondary trading
for the week ended September 22.


BLUE BEE: Wants Plan Filing Extended to Complete Claims Review
--------------------------------------------------------------
Blue Bee, Inc., asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Central
District of California to extend the exclusive periods during which
only the Debtor may file a plan of reorganization and obtain
acceptances of the plan, to and including Nov. 16, 2017, and Jan.
15, 2018, respectively.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on Sept. 11, 2017, the
Court extended for approximately 60 days the exclusive periods
during which only the Debtor could file a plan of reorganization
and obtain acceptances of the plan, to and including Oct. 16 and
Dec. 15, respectively.

The Debtor believes it would be premature to file a Plan by Oct.
16.

The Debtor relates it recently concluded its analysis and final
determination regarding the assumption or rejection of the leases
for the retail stores, and believes it is now well positioned to
formulate the terms of a Plan in this case.

The Debtor says that during the months that the Debtor's bankruptcy
case has been pending, it has worked diligently to stabilize its
business operations, decrease expenses and increase store revenue
at its 13 operating retail stores.  Although the Debtor's efforts
to stabilize its business operations and increase sales were
hampered by, among other things, the unexpectedly inclement weather
in California during the 2016-2017 winter season, which in turn
negatively impacted the entire retail industry in California, the
Debtor believes that its business operations have now substantially
stabilized and that it will soon be in a position to accurately
forecast its sales revenue and expenditures, based upon historical
performance (including its performance during the last
approximately 9 months), to formulate and ultimately support a Plan
in this case.

While the Debtor has been in the process of evaluating and
formulating the potential terms of a Plan, the Debtor requires a
brief extension of time to complete its review of the proofs of
claim that have been filed by creditors in the Debtor's case (which
claims will need to be accounted for in any Plan), to continue to
evaluate and determine the feasibility of potential terms of a
Plan, to continue to evaluate its business operations and to
prepare accurate cash flow forecasts in support of a Plan, and to
complete the preparation of a Plan and disclosure statement and
other documents related thereto.

The Debtor intends to use the brief extension of time, if granted
by the Court, to engage in discussions with its primary secured
creditor, Pacific City Bank, regarding the potential consensual
treatment of Pacific City Bank's claim against the Debtor under a
Plan.  Pacific City Bank's claim is secured by substantially all
assets of the Debtor and, among other things, the personal
residence in Malibu, California owned by the Debtor's principals,
Jeff Sunghak Kim and Young Ae Kim.  Mr. and Mrs. Kim have placed
their Malibu residence on the market and have accepted an offer
from a third party buyer to purchase the residence.  Although the
sale of the Malibu residence has been pending for a number of
months, the sale is now on the verge of closing and is anticipated
to close within the next approximately 30 days.  The closing of the
sale of the Malibu residence will result in a substantial reduction
(of approximately $700,000) of Pacific City Bank's claim against
the Debtor, and will therefore have a significant impact upon the
Debtor's discussions with Pacific City Bank regarding the potential
consensual treatment of Pacific City Bank's claim under a Plan.

The Debtor submits that good cause exists to extend its plan
exclusivity periods.  Given the retail nature of its business, the
Debtor's ultimate reorganization strategy in this case hinged upon
the Debtor's evaluation of the Retail Stores and negotiations with
its landlords.  The Debtor recently completed its evaluation of the
Retail Stores, which evaluation ultimately resulted in the closure
of eight of the Debtor's Retail Stores, leaving the 13 Operating
Retail Stores.  While the Debtor has been in the process of
evaluating and formulating the potential terms of a Plan, the
Debtor requires a brief extension of time to complete its review of
the proofs of claim that have been filed by creditors in the
Debtor's case (which claims will need to be accounted for in any
Plan), to continue to evaluate and determine the feasibility of
potential terms of a Plan, to continue to evaluate its business
operations and to prepare accurate cash flow forecasts in support
of a Plan, and to complete the preparation of a Plan and disclosure
statement and other documents related thereto.

The Debtor is also requesting the brief extension of time to engage
in discussions with its primary secured creditor, Pacific City
Bank, regarding the potential treatment of Pacific City Bank's
claim against the Debtor under a Plan.  If the sale of the
residence owned by the Debtor's principals, Mr. and Mrs. Kim,
closes within the next approximately 30 days, as anticipated, the
claim of Pacific City Bank will be substantially reduced (by
approximately $700,000).  The closing of the sale of the
principals' residence will therefore have a significant impact upon
the Debtor's discussions with Pacific City Bank regarding the
potential treatment of Pacific City Bank's claim under a Plan.

BREITBURN ENERGY: Client Losses Recovered in Hilliard Fraud Case
----------------------------------------------------------------
Stockbroker fraud law firm Oakes & Fosher, LLC, recovered all
client losses in a recent case against brokerage firm Hilliard
Lyons.  In September, a three-member arbitration panel found in
favor of the law firm's clients, and awarded a total of $558,399,
which included an award of $100,000 in punitive damages.

The claims alleged that the broker, Michael Barnett, who works for
Hilliard Lyons, invested the significant majority of the clients'
funds in Breitburn Energy (BBEPQ).  The company operated in the
speculative oil and gas area, and filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy
in May 2016.

Mr. Barnett concentrated the investors' account in this one stock,
which exposed the Illinois couple to additional risk.  Mr. Barnett
had a previous complaint regarding concentration of this stock in
customer accounts.  Mr. Barnett has worked in the securities
industry for approximately seven years.  The Panel in this case
agreed that purchasing this stock for customers was not
appropriate, and that concentrating the investors' account in this
one stock was even more inappropriate.

Oakes & Fosher, LLC was able to recover $450,000 in compensatory
damages and $100,000 in punitive damages as well as costs due to
the actions of Barnett and Hilliard Lyons.

                      About Hilliard Lyons

                      About Breitburn Energy

Breitburn Energy is engaged in the acquisition, exploitation and
development of oil and natural gas properties, Midstream Assets,
and a combination of ethane, propane, butane and natural gasoline
that when removed from natural gas become liquid under various
levels of higher pressure and lower temperature, in the United
States.  Operations are conducted through Breitburn Parent's
wholly-owned subsidiary, Breitburn Operating LP, and BOLP's general
partner, Breitburn Operating GP LLC.

Breitburn Energy Partners LP and 21 of its affiliates filed
voluntary petitions for relief under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy
Code (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Lead Case No. 16-11390) on May 15, 2016,
listing assets of $4.71 billion and liabilities of $3.41 billion.
The petitions were signed by James G. Jackson, executive vice
president and chief financial officer.

The Debtors are represented by Ray C Schrock, Esq., and Stephen
Karotkin, Esq., at Weil Gotshal & Manges LLP.  The Debtors hired
Steven J. Reisman, Esq., and Cindi M. Giglio, Esq., at Curtis,
Mallet-Prevost, Colt & Mosle LLP as their conflicts counsel.  The
Debtors tapped Alvarez & Marsal North America, LLC, as financial
advisor; Lazard Freres & Co. LLC as investment banker; and Prime
Clerk LLC as claims and noticing agent.

The U.S. trustee for Region 2 appointed three creditors of
Breitburn Energy Partners LP and its affiliates to serve on the
official committee of unsecured creditors, and on Nov. 15, 2016,
the U.S. Trustee appointed seven creditors of Breitburn Energy
Partners LP and its affiliated debtors to serve on the official
committee of unsecured creditors.


BREITBURN ENERGY: Needs More Time for Creditor Talks, to File Plan
------------------------------------------------------------------
Breitburn Energy Partners LP and its affiliated debtors request the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York to
further extend their exclusive periods in which to file a chapter
11 plan and solicit acceptances of that plan through October 30 and
December 27, 2017, respectively.

A hearing will be held on the Debtors' Motion on October 12, 2017
at 10:00 a.m.  Objections are due October 5.

The Debtors are seeking a modest extension of the Exclusive Periods
at this critical juncture of their chapter 11 cases in furtherance
of their commitment to serve as a fiduciary for their estates and
continue to broker a consensual plan of reorganization among their
various creditor constituencies that is in the best interests of
their economic stakeholders.

The Debtors assert that the requested extensions of the Exclusive
Periods are appropriate to complete negotiations with the Second
Lien Group, the Ad Hoc Group of Noteholders and all other key
constituents, and to maintain the current momentum of the plan
process.

Since the Petition Date, the Debtors have managed an inclusive plan
negotiation process, and have negotiated with numerous stakeholders
regarding various permutations of several plan proposals.

These efforts have culminated in two potential plan paths and the
requested extensions will provide the Debtors with the opportunity
to propose a plan that is confirmable and that will appropriately
address the cancellation of indebtedness income issue.
Particularly, the Debtors have negotiated the specific structure
and terms of a plan of reorganization proffered by certain holders
the Second Lien Group, pursuant to which the Debtors would obtain
new financing and exit chapter 11 keeping their entire existing
business enterprise intact.  Those plan negotiations continued in
earnest until mid-to-late August, and the Debtors prepared and
distributed a draft plan of reorganization to the Second Lien Group
and the First Lien Lenders, embodying this plan formulation.

Likewise, direct dialogue between the advisors to the Debtors and
advisors to the Ad Hoc Groups of Bondholders on the terms of a
proposed plan of reorganization to be sponsored by certain holders
of Unsecured Notes ceased in early August.  Notably, the Debtors'
insistence that the proposed plan be consensual with the Second
Lien Group -- rather than requiring that it be pursued via various
cram-up structures being proposed by the Ad Hoc Groups of
Bondholders --  all contributed to the abandonment of that proposed
plan structure.

The Debtors tell the Court that they have also discovered that the
Ad Hoc Groups of Bondholders and the Second Lien Group had begun a
direct dialogue in mid-August regarding the structure of a plan of
reorganization ("Rights Offering Plan") pursuant to which the
holders of the Second Lien Notes would receive in satisfaction of
their claims a substantial portion of the equity of a Reorganized
Breitburn that would own all of the Debtors' assets, other than the
Debtors' assets located in the Permian Basin region.

Pursuant to the proposed Rights Offering Plan, an equity infusion
through a rights offering will be implemented where the
participants in the Rights Offering would receive 100% of the
equity of a new entity that would own the Permian Assets and which
entity also would own the balance of the equity of Reorganized
Breitburn not distributed to the holders of the Second Lien Notes.

The Rights Offering Plan contemplates that the Rights Offering
would be backstopped by certain Unsecured Noteholders, including
certain members of the Ad Hoc Groups of Bondholders.  The Ad Hoc
Groups of Bondholders and the Second Lien Group chose to exclude
the Debtors from their direct dialogue until they reached an
agreement among themselves.

On August 29, 2017, the Debtors received an unsolicited offer to
purchase their Permian Assets.  This confidential offer also was
simultaneously provided to the Debtors' key constituents.  After
consulting with the Second Lien Group and the Ad Hoc Groups of
Bondholders, given the strong potential to disrupt the ability to
achieve a consensual plan and the Debtors' understanding of the
relationship of this potential purchaser to one of the Debtors'
Unsecured Noteholders, the Debtors have not yet engaged with that
party and the offer remains under consideration.

As such, the requested extension will provide the Equity Committee
and the Debtors with additional time to address any concerns the
Equity Committee still may have regarding the way in which the
Debtors intend to address the issue or with respect to the proposed
treatment under the plan of its constituency.

BRINK'S COMPANY: Moody's Affirms Ba1 CFR & Revises Outlook to Neg.
------------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service affirmed The Brink's Company's Ba1
Corporate Family rating ("CFR") and Ba1-PD Probability of Default
rating ("PDR"). The Speculative Grade Liquidity rating was upgraded
to SGL-2 from SGL-3. Moody's assigned a Ba2 to the proposed senior
unsecured notes due 2027. The ratings outlook was revised to
negative from stable.

Brink's announced it plans to issue an unrated senior secured bank
facility, consisting of a $1 billion revolving credit facility due
2022 and a $500 million term loan A due 2024, and plans to offer a
$500 million senior unsecured note. The net proceeds of the
financings will be used to repay existing indebtedness, including
the unsecured revolving credit facility, and add balance sheet
cash. The Ba1 (LGD4) rating on the senior unsecured revolving
credit facility due 2020 will be withdrawn when it is repaid.

Moody's took the following rating actions:

-- Corporate Family Rating, Affirmed at Ba1

-- Probability of Default Rating, Affirmed at Ba1-PD

-- Senior Unsecured Notes, Assigned at Ba2 (LGD 5)

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

Outlook:

-- Outlook, Changed To Negative From Stable

RATINGS RATIONALE

"Brink's plans for ongoing debt-financed acquisitions could lead to
higher financial leverage and diminished free cash flow if recent
revenue growth increases and profit margin expansion stalls," said
Edmond DeForest, Moody's Vice President and Senior Credit Officer.

The Ba1 CFR reflects Brink's market leadership across a number of
security related services, its geographic diversification and
Moody's expectations for debt to EBITDA of around 3 times. In 2017,
Brink's operating performance showed substantial improvements.
Moody's anticipation of 5% to 7% organic revenue growth in 2018 and
expanding EBITA margins provide support despite pressure from a
modest free cash flow profile and the company's sharp increase in
debt-financed acquisition activity.

EBITA margins are expected to expand to 9% to 10% in 2017 and 11%
by 2018, up substantially from about 6.6% in 2016 and around 5.7%
in 2015, driven by ongoing expense management initiatives and lower
operating costs enabled by efficiency-oriented investments,
including single-driver vehicles, and new, higher margin service
lines. However, expenses associated with anticipated debt-financed
acquisitions, including transaction fees and integration costs,
will pressure and limit free cash flow. Elevated capital
expenditures in growth and efficiency investments will also reduce
free cash flow. Revenue growth could be limited by volume and
pricing pressure and currency translation impacts. Additional
factors pressuring volumes and profitability include the growth of
non-cash payment methods, volatile retail expenditures and diamond
and jewelry shipments, structural cost issues (pensions) and
pricing pressure given a challenging banking industry environment.
International operations account for the vast majority of revenues
and profitability but a preponderance of the company's debt is
denominated in US dollars.

All financial metrics cited reflect Moody's standard analytical
adjustments.

The upgrade of the Speculative Grade Liquidity rating to SGL-2 from
SGL-3 reflects Brink's good overall liquidity, notably from over
$500 million of cash expected pro forma for the announced senior
notes offering and the fully available $1 billion revolver, despite
Moody's expectations for only modest free cash flow and the loss of
financial flexibility from granting a security interest in the
assets of the company to the senior secured lenders.

The Ba2 rating on the proposed senior unsecured notes reflects the
Ba1-PD PDR and a LGD assessment of LGD5. The senior notes are
guaranteed by substantially all of the domestic subsidiaries of the
company. The loss given default assessment reflects effective
subordination to all the secured debt.

The negative outlook reflects Moody's concern that if revenue
growth or profitability rate expansion stalls, the company's
financial leverage would remain elevated and free cash flow would
remain weak. The ratings outlook could be revised to stable from
negative if Moody's anticipates ongoing growth in free cash flow
and predictable, balanced financial policies.

Given the negative ratings outlook, a ratings upgrade is not likely
in the near term. That said, an extended improvement in financial
performance through consistent revenue and earnings growth and
material free cash flow generation adequate to fund growth
investments could lead to an upgrade. Higher ratings are possible
if Moody's anticipates Brink's will sustain: 1) debt to EBITDA
below 2.5 times; 2) EBITA to interest expense above 4 times; 3)
free cash flow to debt exceeding 10%; and 4) balanced financial
policies.

A downgrade of the ratings is possible if Moody's anticipates: 1)
debt to EBITDA sustained above 3.5 times; 2) declines in EBITA
margins; 3) weakness in free cash flow before growth capital
expenditures; or 4) more aggressive financial policies, including
the use of debt proceeds to increase shareholder returns.

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

Brink's provides security-related services on a global basis.
Services include cash-in-transit, secure transportation of
valuables, ATM servicing, payment services, guarding and related
logistics. Moody's anticipates revenue of approaching $3.5 billion
in 2018.


BROOKWOOD ACADEMY: Has Final Nod to Use US Bank's Cash Collateral
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Charles M. Caldwell of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of Ohio has entered a final order granting
Brookwood Academy, Inc., permission to use cash collateral of the
U.S. Bank National Association.

The Debtor has represented that its intended result in this
proceeding is to restructure its financial affairs, maximize the
value of its assets, and to provide a substantive and procedural
mechanism for the realization of that value for the benefit of all
parties in interest.  The Debtor contends that if it is to have any
possibility of successfully achieving its intended results in this
proceeding, it must continue its day-to-day operations, keeping its
management and employees on board and continuing to the extent
possible "business as usual."  For these purposes, Debtor has
indicated an immediate need to use its present and future cash
collateral to meet its payroll, pay its taxes, pay its utilities,
purchase necessary supplies and services, replace its inventory,
and perform other necessary functions in the regular course of its
business.

The Debtor has represented that the immediate use of cash
collateral is necessary to continue its operations in the ordinary
course of business, and that it has demonstrated that the interests
of U.S. Bank, if any, in cash collateral, can be adequately
protected during the limited period of use as permitted.

Additionally, the Court finds that an immediate need exists for
Debtor to use its cash collateral to assure the orderly
administration of its estate and that without funds the Debtor's
estate will be irreparably harmed.

Cash collateral will be permitted to be used by or on behalf of the
Debtor during the pendency of the final court order only on these
terms and conditions:

     a. the Debtor will maintain its bank accounts at a federally
        insured depository institution;

     b. the Debtor will, upon receipt of cash collateral generated

        after the Petition Date, take or cause to be taken any and

        all action necessary to cause all of the cash collateral
        to be immediately deposited into a debtor in possession
        account;

     c. subject to all other terms and conditions specified, all
        bills, invoices and statements for necessary expenses
        incurred in connection with the operation of the Debtor's
        business will be paid when due from the funds deposited or

        to be deposited in any debtor in possession account.  For
        purposes of the final court order, the necessary operating

        expenses of Debtor are defined as those expenditures made
        to meet its payroll, pay its taxes, make lease payments
        related to its operations, purchase necessary supplies and

        service, and perform other necessary functions in the
        regular course of its business, all as more fully
        identified in the budget;

     d. the Debtor will, for each month during the pendency of
        this proceeding, file with the Court financial reports as
        may be required by the Office of the U.S. Trustee at the
        time required under the rules of the Office of the U. S.
        Trustee (i.e., by the 20th day of the following month) to
        the extent of the value of cash collateral subject to any
        respective established valid and subsisting interests of
        U.S. Bank:

        a. the liens, if any, of U.S. Bank in cash collateral are
           continued and re-granted and U.S. Bank will not be
           required to take any other action to perfect the
           lien(s) re-granted to it hereunder; and

        b. U.S. Bank, as its interest may appear, is granted liens

           and security interests in the Debtor's accounts
           receivable, general intangibles and other revenues
           generated by the operation of the Debtor's business

CAREFOCUS CORP: Has Court's Okay to Use Cash Collateral
-------------------------------------------------------

For purposes of adequate protection, the Debtor agrees to pay to
the IRS a minimum of $1,046.15 on or before the last day of each

CARETRUST REIT: Moody's Hikes CFR to Ba3; Outlook Remains Positive
------------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service upgraded the corporate family rating of
CareTrust REIT, Inc. to Ba3 from B1 and the senior unsecured rating
of its subsidiary, CTR Partnership, L.P., to Ba3 from B1. The
ratings upgrade is primarily driven by the REIT's improved credit
and operating metrics, achieved through a combination of strategic
investments and a debt refinancing executed earlier this year. The
ratings outlook remains positive reflecting Moody's expectation
that the REIT will continue to profitably grow and improve tenant
concentration while maintaining strong credit metrics.

The following ratings were upgraded:

Issuer: CareTrust REIT, Inc.

Corporate family rating to Ba3 from B1

Issuer: CTR Partnership, L.P.

Senior unsecured rating to Ba3 from B1

RATINGS RATIONALE

CareTrust has experienced solid growth through small, targeted
acquisitions of skilled nursing facilities since its spin-off from
The Ensign Group ("Ensign") in 2014. Since that time, CareTrust has
been able to lower its concentration with Ensign to 49.4% as of
Q217, from 69.6% at YE 2015. Moody's expects CareTrust to be an
active acquirer over the next 18-24 months, likely with new tenant
relationships that will further reduce its exposure to Ensign. Net
debt/EBITDA was unusually low at 3.4x as of Q217, but will increase
with subsequent or pending acquisitions. Moody's expects the REIT
to operate within the lower end of its target leverage range of
4-5x which implies a mixture of debt and equity financing for
future acquisitions.

The Ba3 rating is further supported by solid liquidity, with a $400
million revolving credit facility that is used primarily as bridge
financing for acquisitions. The only other debt in the company's
capital structure is a $300 million bond issued in June 2017 and
due in 2025, which was used to redeem its inaugural bond issued in
2014. This transaction not only extended the maturity by an
additional four years but also improved pricing by 625 basis
points, which in turn will result in significant interest expense
savings. Moody's expects fixed charge coverage to be maintained
above 4x going forward.

Areas of concern include the skilled nursing sector's high
dependency on reimbursements from Medicaid and Medicare, which can
be volatile, as well as operators' ability to adapt to the general
industry shift to value-based payment systems. Positively Moody's
note that CareTrust's rent coverage has remained strong at 1.66x
for the trailing twelve month period ended March 31, 2017.

Moody's indicated that a rating upgrade would likely reflect
growing its gross asset base closer to $2 billion while reducing
its tenant concentration such that no single tenant represents more
than 35% of revenues and stable rent coverage trends. Fixed charge
coverage above 4.0x and maintaining leverage within its target of
4-5x on a consistent basis would also be needed for an upgrade.

Negative rating pressure would likely result should the REIT
experience sustained deterioration in property coverage ratios,
fixed charge coverage below 3x, or material increases in secured
debt, which could create subordination and pressure on the senior
unsecured debt rating.

CareTrust REIT, Inc. specializes in the ownership and management of
triple-net leased senior housing facilities in the western U.S. As
of 2Q17, CareTrust's portfolio consisted 161 real estate properties
located in 22 states. The company's gross asset value as of 2Q17
was $1.2 billion.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Global Rating
Methodology for REITs and Other Commercial Property Firms published
in July 2010.

COEUR MINING: S&P Affirms 'BB-' CCR & Unsec. Debt Ratings
---------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings affirmed its 'BB-' corporate credit rating on
Coeur Mining Inc. The outlook is stable.

On Sept. 11, 2017, Chicago-based Coeur Mining announced the entry
into an agreement for the acquisition of JDS Silver Holdings Ltd,
which owns the Silvertip Mine in British Columbia, Canada. As a
result of the acquisition, the company is obtaining a four-year,
$200 million revolving credit facility, under which $100 million is
expected to be drawn down.

S&P said, "At the same time, we affirmed our 'BB-' issue-level
rating on Coeur's senior unsecured notes due 2024. The recovery
rating on the notes is '3'. The '3' recovery rating indicates our
expectation of meaningful (50%-70%; rounded estimate: 55) recovery
in the event of a payment default. We also assigned our 'BB+'
issue-level rating on the company's senior secured revolving credit
facility. The recovery rating on the revolver is '1'. The '1'
recovery rating indicates our expectation of very high (90%-100%;
rounded estimate: 95) recovery in the event of a payment default.

"Based on our forecast, we expect Coeur Mining's increased
production and stable cash costs to maintain leverage below 2x
throughout 2018. We expect total production in silver equivalent
terms to increase by almost 17% year-over-year in 2017, and by
approximately 20% in 2018. At the same time, we expect cash costs
to modestly increase about 1.5% in 2017 and fall by about 4% in
2018, mainly due to cost reductions in the Palmarejo and Rochester
mines, and also by the acquisition of the low-cost production
silver mine from JDS Silver Holdings Ltd.

"The stable outlook reflects our view that Coeur Mining will meet
its production and cost targets and generate EBITDA such that
leverage remains relatively low, with adjusted debt to EBITDA in
the 1.5x to 3x range over the next 12 months and FFO to debt in the
40% to 50% range.

"We could consider lowering the rating if the company's credit
measures were to weaken as a result of deterioration in operating
performance during the next 12 months, specifically, if debt to
EBITDA was sustained above 3x. This could be an indicator of
operational inefficiencies such as increasing costs or production
issues, absent debt-financed acquisitions. For that to happen, the
gold price would have to fall to below $1,060 in 2018, from our
estimated price of $1,250.

"We could raise the rating in the longer term if Coeur increased
its operating diversity and production volumes while preserving its
profitability and leverage at the current level."

CROWNROCK LP: Moody's Rates $1BB Sr. Unsec. Notes Due 2025 'B3'
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a B3 rating to CrownRock, L.P.'s
(CrownRock) $1,000 million senior unsecured notes due 2025.
CrownRock's other ratings and stable outlook remained unchanged.

The note proceeds will be used to tender for CrownRock's $405
million senior unsecured notes due 2021 and their $350 million
senior unsecured notes due 2023. The remainder is expected to be
used for funding the company's 2018 capital spending.

Assignments:

Issuer: CrownRock, L.P.

-- Senior Unsecured Regular Bond/Debenture, Assigned B3 (LGD4)

RATINGS RATIONALE

The new senior notes rated B3 are unsecured and therefore
subordinated to the senior secured credit facility's potential
priority claim to the company's assets. The size of the potential
senior secured claims relative to the unsecured notes outstanding
results in the senior notes being notched below the B2 CFR under
Moody's Loss Given Default Methodology.

The B2 Corporate Family Rating (CFR) reflects CrownRock's good
operating performance in a volatile commodity price environment.
The B2 CFR also reflects CrownRock's modest and improving scale,
large percentage of oil production, expected continued margin
improvement, and management's track record of growing reserves and
production in the Permian Basin. Gradual horizontal activity
coupled with vertical activity portray a lower operating risk
profile versus similarly rated peers. CrownRock has a high
concentration in the Permian, accounting for nearly all its proved
reserves and PV-10 value. CrownRock's B2 CFR also considers its
private equity ownership and negative free cash flow status for the
next two years.

The stable outlook reflects Moody's expectation that CrownRock will
continue growing production as it shifts from vertical to
horizontal drilling and concurrently improving leverage and cash
flow metrics. The rating could be upgraded if production were to
reach 35,000 boe/d and retained cash flow to debt is sustained
above 35%. The rating could be downgraded if production declines,
retained cash flow to debt falls below 15%, or if liquidity
worsens.

CrownRock, L.P. (CrownRock) is an independent exploration and
production (E&P) company whose core area is in the Permian Basin of
West Texas.

The principal methodology used in this rating was Independent
Exploration and Production Industry published in May 2017.


CROWNROCK LP: S&P Rates $1BB Sr. Unsec. Notes Due 2025 'B+'
-----------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings assigned its 'B+' issue-level rating to Midland,
Texas-based oil and gas exploration and production (E&P) company
CrownRock L.P.'s new $1 billion senior unsecured notes maturing in
2025. The recovery rating is '3', reflecting S&P's expectation of
meaningful (50%-70%; rounded estimate: 55%) recovery in the event
of a payment default.

The corporate credit rating remains 'B+'. The outlook remains
stable.  

CrownRock will use proceeds of the new senior unsecured notes to
tender or redeem the principal amount on its outstanding $405
million 7.125% due 2021 and $350 million 7.75% senior unsecured
notes due 2023, pay all fees and expenses associated with the
transaction, and fund a portion of the company's capital
development plan.

EASTGATE PROFESSIONAL: Has Interim Nod to Use Cash Collateral
-------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Jeffery P. Hopkins of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of Ohio has granted Eastgate Professional Office
Park, Ltd., interim authorization to use cash collateral.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on Sept. 28, 2017, the
Debtor asked the Court to enter interim and final orders
authorizing the Debtor to use cash collateral upon which a lien is
held by GLIC Real Estate Holding Company, LLC.  The Debtor required
immediate access to its cash collateral in order to pay present
operating expenses and to pay vendors and other key constituencies
during this Chapter 11, with confidence that it has sufficient
resources to meet its financial obligations in a manner that will
maximize the return on its assets.  

The Debtor will on a timely basis make monthly adequate protection
payments to Lender in the amounts $61,324.34 (which is made up of
monthly principal and interest payments of $ 42,420.71, tax escrow
of $ 16,203.11 and tax escrow arrearage of $ 2,700.52).  The Lender
will apply each of the Debtor's payments to the Senior Secured
Indebtedness for which Debtor specifies it is to apply, but may
allocate payments to interest, principal, legal fees and costs due
in a manner as the Lender deems appropriate in accordance with its
Senior Secured Loan Documents.

As adequate protection for any post-petition diminution in value of
the Lender's interests in the Pre-Petition Collateral, including
without limitation for any diminution in value resulting from the
use of cash collateral, the use, sale or lease of any other
pre-petition collateral, or the imposition of the automatic stay,
the Lender is granted a post-petition claim against the Debtor's
estate.  In order to secure the Adequate Protection Claim, the
Lender is granted a lien, mortgage and security interest in and
upon (a) the pre-petition collateral and all postpetition proceeds
of the pre-petition collateral, and (b) the post-petition
collateral and all proceeds thereof to the same extent, validity
and priority as its pre-petition security interest.

The occurrence of any one or more of these events will constitute
an event of default under this interim court order:

     (i) the case is either dismissed or converted to a case under
Chapter 7 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code;

ENGLEWOOD MISSIONARY: U.S. Trustee Unable to Appoint Committee
--------------------------------------------------------------
An official committee of unsecured creditors has not yet been

ERC FINANCE: Moody's Assigns B3 CFR; Outlook Stable
---------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a B3 Corporate Family Rating and
B3-PD Probability of Default Rating to ERC Finance, LLC, parent
company of Eating Recovery Center, LLC ("ERC"). Moody's also
assigned a B2 rating to the company's new senior secured first lien
credit facility. The rating outlook is stable. This is the first
time that Moody's has rated ERC.

Moody's assigned the following ratings:

ERC Finance, LLC

Corporate Family Rating at B3

Probability of Default Rating at B3-PD

$30 million senior secured revolving credit facility expiring 2022
at B2 (LGD 3)

$190 million senior secured first lien term loan due 2024 at B2
(LGD 3)

$30 million senior secured delayed draw term loan due 2024 at B2
(LGD 3)

The rating outlook is stable.

RATINGS RATIONALE

The B3 rating is constrained by ERC's very high financial leverage
of approximately 7.5x on a Moody's pro forma adjusted basis. The
rating is also constrained by the company's small absolute size and
concentrated service line offering. Further, Moody's believes ERC
will continue to expand aggressively through growth of existing
facilities, new facility openings, and acquisitions. There is the
risk that the company's growth strategy will lead to lower
utilization at facilities or failure to earn adequate returns on
its investments. The rating is supported by ERC's good reputation
in the eating disorder market and solid track record of growth.
Further, ERC has good geographic and customer diversity. The
company also has no exposure to direct government reimbursement and
maintains in-network contracts with most large insurers. However,
given the high daily cost of treatment, there is the risk that
payors will pressure length of stay or steer patients to lower cost
settings.

The stable outlook reflects Moody's view that leverage will remain
high but that the company's growth strategy will increase its size
and scale and liquidity will remain adequate.

The ratings could be downgraded if the company's expansion strategy
fails to produce profitable revenue growth or leads to operating
disruption. If ERC engages in debt-financed acquisition or
dividends, the ratings could also be downgraded. Further, weakening
of liquidity or sustained negative free cash flow could lead to a
downgrade.

The ratings could be upgraded if ERC materially increases its size
and scale. If the company sustains adjusted debt/EBITDA below 5.5x
and demonstrates positive free cash flow and good liquidity,
Moody's could upgrade the ratings.

Eating Recovery Center is a provider of specialized eating disorder
treatments for conditions including anorexia, bulimia, and binge
eating. The company operates 25 treatment facilities across 7
states. Services provided include acute/in-patient care,
residential, partial hospitalization and intensive outpatient.
Revenues were approximately $152 million for the last twelve months
ended June 30, 2017. The company will be privately held by CCMP
Capital.

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


ESCONDIDO VENTURES: Talks with US Military Delay Plan Filing
------------------------------------------------------------
Escondido Ventures, LLC, and its affiliates ask the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the Western District of Texas to extend the Debtors'
exclusive periods to file a Chapter 11 plan or plans, and to obtain
acceptances of the plan(s) to Nov. 27, 2017, and Jan. 26, 2018,
respectively.

Absent an extension, the Debtors' extended exclusive filing period
and exclusive solicitation period are slated to expire on Sept. 28
and Nov. 27, respectively.  This is the Debtors' first request for
extension of the Exclusive Periods.  The Debtors say they have made
significant progress towards a framework in formulating a Chapter
11 plan; however, they do not anticipate that a Chapter 11 plan
will be complete prior to the Sept. 28 expiration of the Exclusive
Period.

Prior to the Petition Date and throughout the duration of these
cases, the Debtors have diligently evaluated, in consultation with
their professionals, a number of options to address the Debtors'
financial issues.  These efforts included engaging in discussions
regarding restructuring the Debtors' businesses and the sale of
their respective assets and membership interests in the entities.
The Debtors believe they can sell new membership interests in the
entities as part of a feasible, confirmable plan.  However, because
of various discussions with the United States Military Surface
Deployment and Distribution Command, the Debtors need additional
time to finalize their plan of reorganization.

Although not a particularly large case, the Debtors' cases have
their share of complexities.  Since filing these cases, the Debtors
have focused their efforts on the operations of the business and
handling the many faceted and legal business issues that require
substantial time and diligence to resolve.  The varied nature of
the interests in these cases compel the requested extension of the
Exclusive Periods.

The Debtors tell the Court that considering the complexities of the
Chapter 11 cases, neither the Debtors nor any other party in
interest will be in a position to formulate, promulgate and build
consensus for a plan before Sept. 28.  According to the Debtors,
the extension of the Exclusive Periods will enable them to
formulate a plan and present that plan to parties-in-interest upon
approval of their disclosure statement.  Thus, the extension will
not result in a delay of the process to formulate a plan.  To the
contrary, the requested extension of the Exclusive Periods will
permit the plan process to move forward in an orderly fashion and
with better information for all stakeholders.

Termination of exclusivity could be very disruptive to the Debtors'
efforts to develop a plan.  At this time, the Debtors continue to
review and analyze their financial records, but negotiations toward
consensus on a feasible plan are not complete.  Moreover, if
exclusivity terminates and competing plans are filed, resources and
energy will necessarily be diverted from negotiating a consensual
Chapter 11 plan to prosecuting and defending competing plans.

The Debtors assure the Court that they have met post-petition
obligations as they come due.

The Debtor's continued use of cash collateral through Oct. 20, 2017

A copy of the Order is available at:

          http://bankrupt.com/misc/iasb16-01823-1116.pdf

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on Sept. 6, 2017, the
Court addressed the Debtor's motion for an order reopening
bankruptcy cases to interpret and enforce confirmation orders and
the second amended plan, and the objection to the motion filed by

Oklahoma Department of Environmental Quality.  Judge Carey rules
that he will not reopen the bankruptcy case.

Nos. 16-01823, 16-01825 and 16-01827) on Sept. 13, 2016.  The
petitions were signed by Jim Mahoney, CEO.  The cases are assigned
to Judge Anita L. Shodeen.  The Debtors disclosed total assets of
$32.9 million and total debt of $41.97 million.

entered an order on May 24, 2017, vacating its Oct. 17 order and
discontinuing the joint administration of the cases under the lead
case of Fansteel.

On Sept. 23, 2016, the U.S. Trustee for Region 12 appointed an

creditors' committee of Fansteel would no longer serve as the
official committee in its case and that it would be reconstituted

District of Kansas approved Gabel Lease Service, Inc.'s third
amended disclosure statement, dated August 1, 2017, in support of
its second amended plan of reorganization, dated May 25, 2017.

The Troubled Company Reporter previously reported that in the third

Engineering Inc. reached a resolution of their disputes. The
resolution resulted in the agreement by the company to provide
Larson with 23 replacement pumping units over two and a half years.

claim in Class 5 to receive distributions as part of the general
unsecured claim.

GLS further disclosed in the document that it will pay all allowed
Class 5 unsecured claims in full over the next five years from

                    About Gabel Lease Service

Gabel Lease Service, Inc., operates as a roustabout company in and
around Ness City, Kansas.  GLS also sells pumping units to
customers. Due to the current economic climate, GLS' business
suffered a significant decrease in cash flow.  The drop in
oil-and-gas prices has decreased the frequency in which GLS
provides roustabout services to customers and decreased the number
of customers willing to purchase pumping units from the company.

In early 2016, Larson Engineering, Inc., d/b/a Larson Operating
Co., filed suit against GLS in Ness County District Court, alleging
that it purchased 28 Gabel pumping units in 2008 and 2009 from GLS
and took delivery of only 5 pumping unit over a 5-year period.

Eventually, on Dec. 7, 2015, Larson claims it demanded the Delivery
of the remaining units and filed suit when GLS failed to do so.

Facing the Larson suit and other cash-flow problems, GLS filed a
Chapter 11 petition (Bankr. D. Kan. 16-11948) on Oct. 5, 2016.  The
petition was signed by Brian Gabel, president.  At the time of
filing, the Debtor estimated assets of less than $500,000 and
liabilities of $1 million to $10 million.
      
Judge Robert E. Nugent presides over the case.  

The Debtor tapped Nicholas R. Grillot, Esq., at Hinkle Law Firm,
LLC, as bankruptcy counsel.  The Debtor hired Keenan Law Firm,
P.A., as special counsel; and Adams, Brown, Beran & Ball, Chtd. as
its accountant.

On Nov. 21, 2016, the Office of the U.S. Trustee appointed an
official committee of unsecured creditors.  The committee retained
Tom R. Barnes II, Esq., at Stumbo Hanson, LLP, as its legal
counsel.

HARSCO CORP: S&P Upgrades CCR to 'BB' on Improved Credit Metrics
----------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings raised its corporate credit rating on Harsco
Corp. to 'BB' from 'BB-'. The outlook is stable. S&P said, "We also
raised our issue level ratings on Harsco's senior secured credit
facility to 'BB+' from 'BB'. Our recovery rating on the senior
secured credit facility remains unchanged at '2', which indicates
substantial recovery (70%-90%; rounded estimate: 75%) in the event
of a payment default."

S&P said, "The upgrade reflects our expectation that Harsco will
maintain its recently improved credit measures, including a
debt-to-EBITDA metric well below 4x. We also believe the company's
financial policy decisions will support this level of leverage over
the next 12 to 18 months. The company's financial performance has
improved in the first half of 2017 due to recovery in key end
markets, such as metals, mining, and energy, and we expect Harsco
to sustain this level of improvement through at least 2018, in part
due to our forecast for continued growth in commodity prices. In
addition, Harsco eliminated its dividend in 2016 in order to
preserve cash flow for debt service and business reinvestment. It
has not paid a dividend so far in 2017. We believe shareholder
returns are likely to be relatively modest over the next 12 months,
which should enable the company to continue to reduce leverage to
the low 3x area by the end of 2017 and about 3x by the end of
2018.

"The stable outlook on Harsco reflects our expectation for
relatively favorable market conditions that will allow the company
to maintain leverage in the low 3x area by the end of 2017 and the
3x area by the end of 2018. We believe that this improvement has
resulted from relative stability in the company's end markets,
continued cost improvements, and management's commitment to a
financial policy that supports this level of leverage.

"We could lower our ratings on Harsco by one notch if the company's
operating performance declines due to lower demand for the
company's products and services such that total debt to EBITDA
remained above 4x for an extended period with limited prospects for
improvement. We could also lower our rating if the company pursues
debt-financed acquisitions or shareholder returns that increase its
leverage above 4x on a sustained basis.

"We could raise our ratings on Harsco by one notch if the company's
leverage is consistently below 3x over the economic cycle. We would
also have to believe that the company is committed to financial
policies (particularly around future shareholder returns and
potential acquisitions) that support this level of leverage."


HB FULLER: Moody's Assigns Ba3 CFR on High Leverage
---------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a Ba3 corporate family rating
(CFR) to H.B. Fuller Company, and withdrew its Baa3 long term
issuer ratings and (P)Baa3 senior unsecured shelf ratings,
effectively downgrading Fuller 3 notches due to the $1.575 billion
acquisition of Royal Adhesives and Sealants. Moody's assigned a Ba2
rating to the new senior secured term loans and a B2 rating to the
new unsecured notes; the existing unsecured notes, which are
expected to remain outstanding and unsecured, were downgraded to B2
from Baa3. Moody's also assigned a probability of default rating of
Ba3-PD, and a speculative grade liquidity rating of SGL-2. The
outlook is stable. This action concludes the review commenced on
September 5, 2017.

"The downgrade of Fuller's ratings reflects the significant step up
in debt and leverage to acquire Royal Adhesives and Sealants
(Royal) from affiliates of American Securities LLC for $1.575
billion," according to Joseph Princiotta, Vice President and Senior
Credit Officer at Moody's. "The company's willingness to complete a
transformational acquisition financed entirely with debt reflects
financial policies more consistent with a speculative-grade
rating," Princiotta added.

Rating Actions:

Withdrawals:

Issuer: H.B. Fuller Company

-- Issuer Rating, withdrawn, previously Baa3, on review for
    downgrade

-- Senior Unsecured Shelf, withdrawn, previously (P)Baa3, on
    review for downgrade

Assignments:

Issuer: H.B. Fuller Company

-- Corporate Family Rating (CFR) Assigned at Ba3

-- Probability of Default Rating (PDR) Assigned at Ba3-PD

-- Speculative Grade Liquidity (SGL) Rating Assigned SGL-2

-- Senior Secured Term Loan B, Assigned at Ba2(LGD3)

-- Senior Unsecured Notes, Assigned at B2(LGD5)

Downgrades:

Issuer: H.B. Fuller Company

-- Senior Unsecured Notes, Downgraded to B2(LGD5) from Baa3

Outlook Actions:

Issuer: H.B. Fuller Company

-- Outlook, Changed to Stable from Rating Under Review

RATINGS RATIONALE

The Ba3 corporate family rating reflects very high leverage and
relatively modest cash flow metrics pro forma for the acquisition
of Royal as well as heightened integration and execution risks. The
downgrade also reflects Moody's view that such a large-debt funded
acquisition reflects a departure from the company's stated
conservative financial policy and publicly stated commitment to
maintaining investment-grade leverage targets between 2-3 times.
Additionally, the timeline for the company to return leverage to
these conservative investment-grade leverage metrics is extended
significantly beyond the rating horizon.

The Ba3 rating also reflects the company's moderate scale,
improving but modest margins and weak credit metrics. H.B. Fuller's
debt/EBITDA as adjusted by Moody's is expected to increase to 6.4x
in the twelve months ended June 30, 2017 pro forma for the
transaction, which will be funded entirely with debt. Including $35
million of projected synergies, leverage is 5.9x. The rating
reflects Moody's expectations that the company will generate free
cash flow and direct it to debt repayment, but that leverage will
remain elevated over the rating horizon. Moody's expects leverage
to decline to 5.3 times in 2018 and 4.4 times in 2019, while
retained cash flow to debt will improve, but only to the low teens.
Given the size of the transaction and two other smaller
acquisitions completed this year, the rating also reflects
integration and execution risk as the company intends to close some
facilities.

The rating is supported by H.B. Fuller's diverse global operations
and revenues, leading position in certain sub-segments of the
global adhesives markets, established customer relationships and
barriers to entry based on formulation and application expertise.
The proposed transaction will increase scale to $2.9 billion in
revenues from $2.2 billion, and strengthen the company's presence
in higher margin adhesive segments as well as add new adhesive
technologies. Pro forma for the transaction, H.B. Fuller's higher
margin durable assembly, engineering adhesives and construction
products segments will increase to 53% of sales from 44% of sales,
which should support margin improvement and free cash flow
generation going forward.

H.B. Fuller's SGL-2 speculative grade liquidity rating reflects
expectations that the company will have good liquidity, supported
by cash on hand, projected free cash flow generation and near full
availability under a now-secured $400 million five-year revolver
due 2022. The company will have approximately $162 million of cash,
pro forma for the close of the transaction. The revolver has a
springing first lien net leverage covenant, which Moody's does not
expect the company to trigger. Fuller's new term loan amortizes at
1.00% annually, which will be $18.5 million per year. Although the
company pays a dividend, Moody's expects it to remain at under $40
million annually over the medium-term horizon.

The stable ratings outlook anticipates that the company will
continue to generate free cash flow, and prioritize its use to
reduce debt and lower Moody's adjusted leverage, which Moody's
expects to trend towards low 4 times leverage by the end of 2019.
The stable outlook also reflects expectations that the company will
refrain from further debt-financed acquisitions that impede a
favorable leverage trend over the medium term.

There is limited upside to the rating at this time, given the high
leverage and uncertainty regarding the magnitude and pace of future
debt reduction. However, eventually, Moody's would considers an
upgrade if leverage were to fall below 4.0x on a sustained basis
and the company demonstrates its ability to sustain EBITDA margins
above 17%.

Fuller's ratings could be downgraded if leverage improvements fail
to occur at the aforementioned pace and magnitude, or if free cash
flow is diminished or turns negative. The ratings could also be
downgraded if the company undertakes additional meaningful
debt-financed acquisitions.

H.B. Fuller Company ("Fuller", NYSE: FUL), headquartered in St.
Paul, Minnesota, is a formulator, manufacturer and marketer of
adhesives and sealants. It is predominantly focused on the
engineering adhesives, durable assembly, construction, packaging,
and hygiene sub-segments of the adhesives market. Fuller generated
revenues of $2.2 billion for the twelve months ended September 2,
2017.

Royal Holdings, Inc. (B2 stable), though its operating subsidiary
Royal Adhesives and Sealants, was a formulator and producer of
sealants, tapes, adhesives, and coatings sold into a variety of end
markets. The company was founded by current Chief Executive Officer
Ted Clark in 2003, became a portfolio company of private equity
firm Arsenal Capital Partners in 2010, and subsequently became a
portfolio company of private equity firm American Securities
following a debt-financed transaction in May 2015. Headquartered in
South Bend, Indiana, the company generates over $600 million of
revenues on an annual basis.

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

HOT TOPIC: Moody's Lowers CFR to B3 Amid 1st HY Store Sales Decline
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded its ratings for Hot Topic,
Inc., including the Corporate Family Rating ("CFR") to B3 from B2,
Probability of Default Rating ("PDR") to B3-PD from B2-PD, and
senior secured notes rating to B3 from B2. The ratings outlook is
stable.

The downgrade reflects Hot Topic's same store sales and EBITDA
declines in the first half of 2017, and Moody's expectations that
increased competition and mall traffic declines will lead to
continued earnings weakness in the next 12-18 months.

"After several years of outperforming mall-based peers driven by
executing inventory, infrastructure and omni-channel initiatives,
Hot Topic has succumbed to traffic declines and competition," said
Moody's analyst Raya Sokolyanska. "Going forward, stabilization and
recovery will depend on the company's ability to source more
exclusive product, gain share online while optimizing its physical
store fleet, and realize its targeted return on investment in the
BoxLunch concept."

Moody's took the following rating actions for Hot Topic, Inc.:

-- Corporate Family Rating, downgraded to B3 from B2

-- Probability of Default Rating, downgraded to B3-PD from B2-PD

-- $340 million 9.25% senior secured notes due 2021, downgraded to

   B3 (LGD4) from B2 (LGD4)

-- Stable outlook

RATINGS RATIONALE

Hot Topic's B3 Corporate Family Rating ("CFR") reflects the
company's small scale, reliance on mall traffic and discretionary
spending primarily by 12-22 year olds, and weak recent operating
performance. The company's 1H 2017 top-line declines were
exacerbated by wage increases and significant spending on BoxLunch
stores, most of which have not reached maturity. Moody's expects
the company to remain vulnerable to traffic declines, particularly
as its locations represent a broad spectrum of U.S. malls.

Nevertheless, Moody's expects e-commerce growth and the scaling of
the BoxLunch concept to mitigate continued traffic weakness in 2H
2017, resulting in a lower rate of earnings declines. Moody's
expects debt/EBITDA to remain near 5 times at year-end 2017 as a
result of revolver repayment, and EBIT/interest expense to decline
from 1.1 times to 1.0 times and remain at that level in 2018. The
rating also considers Hot Topic's relatively low fashion risk
relative to other apparel retailers.

The stable outlook incorporates Moody's expectations for adequate
liquidity in the next 12-18 months, including a return to positive
free cash flow in 2018 as a result of scaled down growth capital
expenditures and the impact of lower annual interest expense
following the HoldCo notes redemption.

The ratings could be upgraded if the company stabilizes its
operating performance, returns to growth, and improves its
liquidity profile. Quantitatively, an upgrade would require
EBIT/interest expense above 1.5 times.

The ratings could be downgraded if the company's operating
performance continues to decline beyond anticipated weakness in
2017, or if liquidity erodes for any reason including continued
negative free cash flow and constrained revolver availability.
Quantitatively, the ratings could be downgraded with expectations
for EBIT/interest expense sustained below 1 time.

Hot Topic, Inc. is a City of Industry, CA-based specialty retailer.
The company operated 698 Hot Topic stores and 62 BoxLunch stores
and generated $758 million in revenues in the last twelve months
ended July 29, 2017. The company has been majority-owned by
Sycamore Partners since the leveraged buyout in June 2013.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Retail Industry
published in October 2015.


IGNITE RESTAURANT: Unsecureds to Recoup 3% Under Plan
-----------------------------------------------------
Ignite Restaurant Group, Inc., and its affiliates filed with the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Texas a
disclosure statement dated Sept. 18, 2017, with respect to the
Debtors' joint Chapter 11 plan dated as of Sept. 18, 2017.

Class 4 General Unsecured Claims -- estimated at $132,000,000 to
$144,500,000 -- are impaired under the Plan.  Holders are expected
to recover 3%.  Each holder will receive, in accordance with the
GUC Trust Documents, its pro rata share of the General Unsecured
Creditors Fund and the GUC Initial Litigation Proceeds.  On each
subsequent Distribution Date or as soon thereafter as is reasonably
practicable, the GUC Trustee will, until the consummation date,
continue to distribute to (i) holders of Allowed Class 4 General
Unsecured Claims (excluding the Secured Lender Deficiency Claims)
of any available funds in the General Unsecured Creditors Fund and
the GUC Initial Litigation Proceeds and (ii) Holders of Allowed
Class 4 General Unsecured Claims (including the Secured Lender
Deficiency Claims) their respective pro rata shares of the GUC
Aggregate Litigation Proceeds to the extent that the GUC Aggregate
Litigation Proceeds exceeds $500,000.

Any Class 4 General Unsecured Claim that constitutes an Assumed
Liability under the Asset Purchase Agreement that remains unpaid as
of the Closing Date will be paid in full in cash by the purchaser
in the ordinary course of business.

The Plan is premised on a Sale of the substantially all of the
Debtors' assets, and thus meets the feasibility test embodied in
Section 1129(a)(11) of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.  The purchaser
closed the transaction and paid the purchase price.  In addition,
the Debtors believe that the fact that the Plan contemplates the
funding of the Liquidating Trust and the GUC Trust to, in part,
realize the value of the Debtors' assets for the benefit of
creditors and the Estates ensures that no further financial
restructuring will be necessary.  The Debtors should have
sufficient cash to fund their activities through the closing of the
sale contemplated by the Plan.

A copy of the Disclosure Statement is available at:

          http://bankrupt.com/misc/txsb17-33550-709.pdf

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on Sept. 20, 2017, the
Debtor on Sept. 7 filed a Chapter 11 plan premised on the sale of
substantially all assets of the company and its affiliates.  Under
that plan, each general unsecured creditor would receive its pro
rata share of the so-called "general unsecured creditors fund" and
the "GUC initial litigation proceeds," according to Ignite
Restaurant's latest disclosure statement filed on Sept. 7 with the
Court.

iHeartCommunications, Inc., is a global media and entertainment
company.  The Company specializes in radio, digital, outdoor,

information services for local communities, and uses its
unparalleled national reach to target both nationally and locally
on behalf of its advertising partners.  The Company is dedicated to
using the latest technology solutions to transform the Company's
products and services for the benefit of its consumers,

iHeartCommunications reported a net loss attributable to the
Company of $296.31 million on $6.27 billion of revenue for the year
ended Dec. 31, 2016, compared to a net loss attributable to the
Company of $754.62 million on $6.24 billion of revenue for the year
ended Dec. 31, 2015.

As of June 30, 2017, iHeartCommunications had $12.30 billion in
total assets, $23.74 billion in total liabilities and a total
stockholders' deficit of $11.44 million.

                           *    *    *

In March 2017, Fitch Ratings downgraded iHeartCommunications,
Inc.'s Long-Term Issuer Default Rating (IDR) to 'C' from 'CC'.  The
downgrade reflects iHeart's announcement on March 15, 2017, that
the company has commenced a global restructuring effort targeting
approximately $14.6 billion in debt including all of the
outstanding Term Loans and PGNs as well as the senior notes due
2021.

Also in March 2017, S&P Global Ratings lowered its corporate credit
rating on Texas-based media company iHeartMedia Inc. and its
subsidiary iHeartCommunications Inc. to 'CC' from 'CCC'.  The
rating outlook is negative.  The downgrade follows
iHeartCommunications' announcement that it has offered to exchange
five series of priority-guarantee notes, its senior notes due 2021,
and its term loan D and E for longer-dated debt; and, in certain
scenarios, stock and warrants, or contingent value rights.  "Under
all but one scenario, there would be a reduction in the principal
amount of debt outstanding and an extension of the debt maturity by
two years for exchanged debt," said S&P Global Ratings' credit
analyst Jeanne Shoesmith.  "The company's debt is trading at
significant discounts to par of 20%-60%, and we believe its capital
structure is unsustainable."

In December 2016, Moody's Investors Service affirmed
iHeartCommunications, Inc.'s 'Caa2' Corporate Family Rating.


IHEARTCOMMUNICATIONS INC: Releases Tax & Corp. Info. to Lenders
---------------------------------------------------------------
iHeartCommunications, Inc., commenced exchange offers on March 15,
2017, to exchange certain series of its outstanding series of debt
securities for new securities of the Company, iHeartMedia, Inc. and
CC Outdoor Holdings, Inc. and concurrent consent solicitations with
respect to the Existing Notes.  In addition, on March 15, 2017, the
Company also commenced offers to amend its outstanding Term Loan D
and Term Loan E borrowings under its senior secured credit
facility.

As previously disclosed, the Company has engaged in discussions
with certain lenders under its Term Loan D and Term Loan E
facilities and certain priority guarantee noteholders and counsel
to certain of those Lenders in connection with the Term Loan
Offers.  In furtherance of those discussions, the Company is
disclosing the following information regarding certain tax and
corporate structure.

   * Based on recent trading prices of Clear Channel Outdoor
Holdings, Inc.'s Class A common stock and subject to certain
assumptions, the Company estimates that a taxable disposition of
all of iHeartMedia Inc.'s interest in Clear Channel
Outdoor Holdings, Inc. would give rise to taxable gain in excess of
$3.7 billion.

   * The Company currently estimates that as of Dec. 31, 2016,
iHeartCommunications, Inc. had a tax basis in the stock of its
direct subsidiary Clear Channel Holdings, Inc. in excess of $4
billion and that Clear Channel Holdings, Inc., had an estimated
aggregate tax basis in the stock of its direct subsidiaries engaged
in the iHeartMedia business segment of approximately $3.4 billion.

   * The Company estimates that as of Dec. 31, 2016, its tax basis
in the domestic fixed and intangible assets related to the
iHeartMedia business segment was approximately $1.1 billion and
that its basis in the domestic fixed and intangible assets of the
Americas Outdoor business segment was approximately $520 million.

   * As of Dec. 31, 2016, Clear Channel Outdoor Holdings, Inc. and
its subsidiaries had a federal net operating loss carry-forward of
approximately $275 million and iHeartMedia, Inc. and its
subsidiaries (excluding Clear Channel Outdoor Holdings, Inc. and
its subsidiaries) had a federal net operating loss carryforward of
approximately $2.9 billion.

The Company said no agreement has been reached with respect to the
above discussions and discussions remain ongoing.  There can be no
assurance that any agreement will be reached.  Any such agreement
will require the consent of additional debt holders who are not
party to the negotiations, and who hold substantial percentages of
the Company's debt.

In March 2017, Fitch Ratings downgraded iHeartCommunications,
Inc.'s Long-Term Issuer Default Rating (IDR) to 'C' from 'CC'.  The
downgrade reflects iHeart's announcement on March 15, 2017, that
the company has commenced a global restructuring effort targeting
approximately $14.6 billion in debt including all of the
outstanding Term Loans and PGNs as well as the senior notes due
2021.

Also in March 2017, S&P Global Ratings lowered its corporate credit
rating on iHeartMedia Inc. and its subsidiary iHeartCommunications
Inc. to 'CC' from 'CCC'.  The rating outlook is negative.  The
downgrade follows iHeartCommunications' announcement that it has
offered to exchange five series of priority-guarantee notes, its
senior notes due 2021, and its term loan D and E for longer-dated
debt; and, in certain scenarios, stock and warrants, or contingent
value rights.  "Under all but one scenario, there would be a
reduction in the principal amount of debt outstanding and an
extension of the debt maturity by two years for exchanged debt,"
said S&P Global Ratings' credit analyst Jeanne Shoesmith.  "The
company's debt is trading at significant discounts to par of
20%-60%, and we believe its capital structure is unsustainable."

In February 2017, Moody's Investors Service affirmed
iHeartCommunications' 'Caa2' Corporate Family Rating.  "iHeart's
Caa2 CFR reflects the very high leverage level of 11.9x on a
consolidated basis as of Q3 2016 (pro-forma for asset sales, but
excluding Moody's standard lease adjustments), negative free cash
flow, and weak interest coverage of approximately 0.9x."


LA PALOMA GENERATING: Discloses 1st Lien Settlement in Latest Plan
------------------------------------------------------------------
La Paloma Generating Company, LLC filed its latest Chapter 11 plan,
which incorporates the settlement of potential causes of action
against creditors holding first lien claims.

The settlement avoids "potentially costly litigation over numerous
complex issues," including avoidance causes of action against
holders of first lien claims, and LNV Corp.'s right to credit bid
for the McKittrick facility and other assets of the company and its
affiliates La Paloma Acquisition Co, LLC and CEP La Paloma
Operating Company, LLC.

As part of the settlement, the latest plan provides for the
distribution of value to creditors.  The companies believe that
recoveries under the plan are greater than those that could be
realized by creditors absent the settlement.  

Moreover, the companies' remaining assets, which will be
contributed to the liquidating trust will consist of all remaining
cash and the "tax refund claim" as part of the settlement.

Under the latest plan, holders of first lien claims will get 62% to
63% of their claims.  Meanwhile, the estimated recovery for holders
of second lien claims is 22% to 31%.

General unsecured creditors of La Paloma will recover 21% to 30% of
their claims while those of CEP La Paloma will get 17%.   La Paloma
Acquisition's general unsecured creditors will get nothing under
the plan, according to the companies' latest disclosure statement
filed on September 21 with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Delaware.

LEHMAN BROTHERS: Deal with Citigroup to Return $1.74-Bil. in Cash
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Andrew Scurria, writing for The Wall Street Journal Pro Bankruptcy,
reported that a deal with Citigroup Inc. and a team of Lehman
Brothers bankruptcy administrators will bring in $1.74 billion to
the bankruptcy estate.

The settlement concludes several outstanding disputes between Citi
and the bankruptcy administrators, most notably a $2 billion
lawsuit over the cost of replacing derivatives trades terminated
upon Lehman's bankruptcy on Sept. 15, 2008, the report related.

According to the report, since April, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Shelley
Chapman has heard 42 days of evidence and testimony in the case, in
which 170 people gave depositions and 30 witnesses wrote expert
reports seeking either to justify or discredit Citi's calculation
of what it was owed.

Pending approval of the deal, the judge won't have to decide the
critical question of how banks should determine their damages when
the institution on the other side of its derivatives positions
shuts its doors, the report further related.

Lehman had derivatives trades with roughly 6,700 counterparties
when it entered bankruptcy, the report said.  With Citi's deal,
only one holdout counterparty, Credit Suisse , hasn't settled with
the bankruptcy estate, the report noted.

Citi had more than 30,000 derivatives trades on its books facing
Lehman, the report said.  The trial was supposed to determine
Citi's proper compensation for having to replace the economic terms
of those positions, the report added.  It shed new light on the
frantic weekend before Lehman went under, and the immediate
aftermath, when traders allegedly used chaos in the marketplace to
justify running up huge transaction fees that Lehman said were
disconnected from actual replacement costs, the report pointed
out.

The dispute raised "the factual question of how closely your
calculation of a closeout with a bankrupt counterparty tracks your
normal course of business," Joshua Dorchak, a lawyer with Morgan
Lewis & Bockius LLP who has advised other institutions caught up in
Lehman's collapse, told the Journal.  "And the legal question of
whether those difference are so substantial that your closeout was
commercially unreasonable or in bad faith."

                    About Lehman Brothers

Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. -- http://www.lehman.com/-- was the
fourth largest investment bank in the United States.  For more than
150 years, Lehman Brothers has been a leader in the global
financial markets by serving the financial needs of corporations,
governmental units, institutional clients and individuals
worldwide.

Lehman Brothers Holdings filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy (Bankr.
S.D.N.Y. Case No. 08-13555) on Sept. 15, 2008.  Lehman's bankruptcy
petition disclosed US$639 billion in assets and US$613 billion in
debts, effectively making the firm's bankruptcy filing the largest
in U.S. history.  Several other affiliates followed thereafter.

Affiliates Merit LLC, LB Somerset LLC and LB Preferred Somerset LLC
sought for bankruptcy protection in December 2009.

The Debtors' bankruptcy cases were assigned to Judge James M. Peck.
Judge Shelley Chapman took over the case after Judge Peck retired
from the bench to join Morrison & Foerster.

A team of Weil, Gotshal & Manges, LLP, lawyers led by the late
Harvey R. Miller, Esq., serve as counsel to Lehman.  Epiq
Bankruptcy Solutions serves as claims and noticing agent.

Dennis F. Dunne, Esq., Evan Fleck, Esq., and Dennis O'Donnell,
Esq., at Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy LLP, in New York, served
as counsel to the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors.
Houlihan Lokey Howard & Zukin Capital, Inc., served as the
Committee's investment banker.

On Sept. 19, 2008, the Honorable Gerard E. Lynch of the U.S.
District Court for the Southern District of New York, entered an
order commencing liquidation of Lehman Brothers, Inc., pursuant to
the provisions of the Securities Investor Protection Act (Case No.
08-CIV-8119 (GEL)).  James W. Giddens was appointed as trustee for
the SIPA liquidation of the business of LBI.  He is represented by
Hughes Hubbard & Reed LLP.

The Bankruptcy Court approved Barclays Bank Plc's purchase of
Lehman Brothers' North American investment banking and capital
markets operations and supporting infrastructure for US$1.75
billion.  Nomura Holdings Inc., the largest brokerage house in
Japan, purchased LBHI's operations in Europe for US$2 plus the
retention of most of employees.  Nomura also bought Lehman's
operations in the Asia Pacific for US$225 million.

Lehman emerged from bankruptcy protection on March 6, 2012, more
than three years after it filed the largest bankruptcy in U.S.
history.  The Chapter 11 plan for the Lehman companies other than
the broker was confirmed in December 2011.

                          *     *     *

In October 2016, the team winding down LBHI paid $3.8 billion to
creditors, the 11th distribution since Lehman's collapse in 2008.
This brought the total payout to more than $113.6 billion.
Bondholders were projected to receive about 21 cents on the dollar
when Lehman's bankruptcy plan went into effect in early 2012.  The
11th distribution raised the bondholders' recovery to more than 40
cents on the dollar and recoveries for general unsecured creditors
of Lehman's commodities to 79 cents on the dollar.  Lehman's
aggregate 12th distribution to unsecured creditors pursuant to its
confirmed Chapter 11 plan will total approximately $3.0 billion.


LEXINGTON HOSPITALITY: Court Okays Aug-Sept Cash Collateral Budget
------------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Kentucky has
approved Lexington Hospitality Group LLC's cash collateral budget
for the months of August and September 2017.

sufficient to cover all ad valorem real property taxes for the
months of August and September 2017 each in the amounts equal to

As additional adequate protection for any diminution in the value
of Private Capital Group, Inc.'s interests in the cash collateral,
pursuant to 11 U.S.C. Sections 361 and 363, PCG is granted liens,

LTD MANAGEMENT: Wants to Use Up To $7,931 of Cash Collateral
------------------------------------------------------------
LTD Management, Inc., seeks permission from the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the District of New Hampshire to continue using up to
$7,931 of cash collateral.

Each record holder of a lien on cash collateral will be granted a
replacement lien on the Debtor's property to the same extent, scope
and validity that each record lienholder held as of the petition
date, unless or until avoided by court order.

The Budget shows, among other things, that:

     a. the Debtor proposes to use $7,931 of its $11,086 in revenue
during the use period to pay costs and expenses incurred in the
ordinary course of business;

     b. the Debtor will be able to pay the costs and expense
incurred in the ordinary course of business during the use period
if it has the ability to spend the maximum use amount;

     c. the Debtor should have a remaining positive cash flow of
$3,155 during the use period.  

The inability to use cash collateral up to the maximum use amount
would jeopardize the reorganization and the Debtor's creditors and
other parties in interest.

The Debtor believes through the continued rental of the building,
the cash collateral will be adequately replaced during the use
period.  The Debtor believes its limited use of cash collateral
during the use period will permit it to maintain essential business
operations, thereby preserving the value of the estate, and confirm
a plan that will be in the best interest of the Debtor's creditors.


A copy of the Debtor's Motion is available at:

            http://bankrupt.com/misc/nhb17-10684-58.pdf

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on July 26, 2017, the
Court issued an order authorizing the Debtor to use cash collateral
through Sept. 30, 2017.  The Court found that the relief requested
in the Debtor's cash collateral was necessary, essential and
appropriate, and was in the best interest of and would benefit the
Debtor, its creditors, and its estate as its implementation will
provide the Debtor with the necessary liquidity to (a) minimize
disruption to the Debtor's business and on-going operations; (b)
preserve and maximize the value of the Debtor's estate for the
benefit of the Debtor's creditors; and (c) avoid immediate and
irreparable harm to the Debtor, its tenants and its assets.

MABE BRASIL: Seeks U.S. Recognition of Brazilian Proceedings
------------------------------------------------------------
The administrators of what's left of defunct Brazilian appliance
maker Mabe Brasil Eletrodomesticos Ltda. filed a Chapter 15
petition in Miami, Florida to seek recognition of the Company's
liquidation proceedings pending in Brazil and to extend in the U.S.
its ongoing probe against the Company's officers and shareholders.

A hearing is scheduled for Oct. 25, 2017, at 11:00 a.m. at C. Clyde
Atkins U.S. Courthouse, 301 N Miami Ave Courtroom 7, in Miami,
Florida.

MABE filed for judicial reorganization in Brazil in May 2013.  In
December 2015, the company ceased operations and the case was
converted to a liquidation proceeding.

MABE was a Brazilian company formed in 1943, which was in the
business of manufacturing home appliances.  MABE owned and operated
two manufacturing factories in Brazil and was a major manufacturer
and exporter of home appliances from Brazil.

In May 2013, the Brazilian Court granted MABE's petition for
reorganization and appointed a judicial administrator to oversee
the reorganization.  In January 2014, the Brazilian court approved
a plan of Reorganization proposed by MABE, which required among
other things, that MABE disclose its creditors and other financial
and that it make certain payments to its creditors.

Between January of 2014, when the Brazilian court approved MABE's
Plan of Reorganization, and 2016, the Company incurred R$25,000,000
(approximately US$7,735,148) of additional debt.  As a result, MABE
was unable to pay its debts as they became due, breaching the Plan
of Reorganization previously approved by the Brazilian Court and
ceased operations on Dec. 18, 2015.  The judicial administrator
subsequently sought to convert the reorganization proceeding into a
liquidation Proceeding.

                              Shareholders

Although MABE's shareholders have fluctuated since the company's
formation, the shareholders at the time it presented its petition
for reorganization were:

        Shareholder                  Percentage
        -----------                  ----------
Mabe Mercosur Participacoes Ltda.      59.34%
Exinmex S.A. de CV                     21.10%
JObelpa USA LLC (US)                    8.67%
DO Paiol International LLC              6.30%
Camburi International LLC               3.37%
Cocinas Mabe S.A. de CV                 1.22%

According to the judicial administrator, MABE Mexico seems to have
been controlling the management and operations of MABE.  Based on
ongoing investigations into the business affairs of MABE, it
appears that MABE Mexico structured MABE's business in such a way
such that MABE received minimal to no profits due to the activities
of its exporting division, while MABE Mexico, which sold MABE's
products in the international market, siphoned most of the profits
from the business to itself.  Thus, MABE Mexico appears to have
maximized its profits at the expense of MABE's.

The judicial administrator estimates MABE has approximately 3,400
creditors and liabilities of approximately R$1,152,519,749 (or
approximately US$368,794,598).

Consequently, the judicial administrator seeks recognition under
Chapter 15 of the Bankruptcy Code to investigate the business and
affairs of MABE for purpose of recovering assets for the benefit of
the creditors, including possibly pursuing any available causes of
action.

"I am seeking recognition to, among other things, obtain
documentary and testimonial evidence from witnesses in furtherance
of my investigative and asset recovery efforts as part of the
Brazilian proceeding.  Specifically, I have identified particular
individuals and entities in the United States, including MABE's
former shareholders, headquartered in Miami, Florida, which I
believe have worked for, rendered services for and/or have
facilitated MABE's operations, and as a result, possess information
and documents relevant to my ongoing investigation and recovery
efforts," Luis Claudio Montoro, the judicial administrator, said in
court filings.

                         About Mabe Brasil

Based in Sao Paulo, Brazil, Mabe Brasil Eletrodomesticos Ltda.,
prior to its collapse, manufactured household appliances, including
gas fireplaces, freezers and washers.

On May 3, 2013, MABE filed a petition for judicial reorganization
before the Brazilian court, on the ground that it was experiencing
a financial crisis.  MABE's petition was granted on May 7, 2013,
and the Brazilian court appointed Eliane Gonsalves to serve as
MABE's judicial administrator.

On March 14, 2014, the Brazilian Court replaced Ms. Gonsalves with
Capital consultoria e Assessoria Ltda., and on Nov. 11, 2015,
Capital Consultoria e Assessoria Ltda was replaced with Capital
Administradora Judicial Ltda.  cAJ is represented by Luis Claudio
Montoro Mendes and Carolina Merizio Borges de Olinda.

On Dec. 18, 2015, MABE ceased operations.  Thereafter, the
administrator filed a petition to convert the reorganization into a
liquidation proceeding.  The Brazilian court granted the petition
on Feb. 10, 2016.

In its Feb. 10, 2016 order, the Brazilian Court declared MABE
bankrupt, stayed all actions against MABE, prohibited the sale or
disposition of MABE's assets absent court authorization, prohibited
MABE's shareholders from leaving the jurisdiction without good
cause and notifying the Brazilian court, and ordered MABE's
shareholders to disclose their assets as required under Brazilian
law.

The judicial administrator filed a Chapter 15 petition (Bankr. S.D.
Fla. 17-21906) on Sept. 29, 2017, to seek U.S. recognition of the
Brazilian proceedings.  The Hon. Jay A. Cristol presides over the
U.S. case.   Sequor Law, P.A., is serving as U.S. counsel.

NORTHWEST ACQUISITIONS: Fitch Assigns 'BB-' Long-Term IDR
---------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has assigned a first-time Long-Term issuer Default
Rating (IDR) of 'BB-' to Northwest Acquisitions ULC. Fitch has also
assigned a 'BB/RR2' to the new $550 million senior secured second
lien notes due 2022 and a 'BB+/RR1' to the $200 million senior
secured first lien revolving credit facility. Proceeds of the notes
will be used together with a cash equity contribution from The
Washington Companies to acquire Dominion Diamond Corporation. After
the acquisition, Dominion Diamond is to be amalgamated into
Northwest Acquisitions ULC.

The revolver and notes are to be secured by diamond inventories and
stockpiles, equity in partially owned joint ventures, and equity
and development assets at the 100% owned Buffer JV. There are to be
restrictions on borrowing and asset pledges at the JV level thereby
reducing the risk of structural subordination.

The ratings reflect the issuer's modest size, concentrated
operations, variable production, industry concentration, Fitch's
expectation of low financial leverage, strong margins, negligible
country risk, and Fitch's expectation of positive free cash flow on
average. The Stable Rating Outlook reflects Fitch's expectation
that the issuer will complete the development of Misery Deep and
Sable.

KEY RATING DRIVERS

Variable Production Profile: Carats recovered at Ekati are expected
to be at a near-term peak of roughly 7 million carats through FY
2020 and then fall to roughly 5.5 million carats per year on
average, including production from the Sable and Misery Deep
projects currently under development, over the following five years
while production from the Jay pipe fully ramps up. Variability in
grade or quality of diamonds from new projects from those expected
from drilling and sampling can adversely impact expected cash
flows. Fitch calculates that the Ekati could sustain a 10% decline
in grade on average before negative rating sensitivities are
reached.

Fitch estimates that a one-year delay in the Sable or Misery Deep
projects could drive FFO net leverage above 2x in 2021 but that
leverage would fall back into acceptable levels for the rating
thereafter.

Diamond Market Dynamics: The issuer is the fourth largest rough
diamond producer in a market dominated by De Beers (37%) and ALROSA
(25%); the top five producers control 83% of the global market. On
a reserve basis, the issuer ranks third. In a demand contraction,
larger producers tend to manage supply while the issuer tends to
consistently offer its product to customers since, at about 7% of
the global market, it is unlikely to impact price. The market
benefits from expectations of deficits on the back of declining
production and the relatively small portion of the final jewellery
prices accounted for by rough diamond prices. Recent pricing trends
indicate that the rough diamond prices have stabilized.

Strong Margins: Costs per carat have been on a down trend with
further improvements expected from the issuer's efficiency programs
and improved grade through 2020. In 2016, average cash costs per
carat of $59 and $42 for Ekati and Diavik, respectively, compare to
the 2016 global median of over $110. Costs per carat are expected
to increase with the ramp up of new deposits but remain under $55
on average through 2022. Assuming no further deterioration in rough
diamond prices, EBITDA margins should average over 50%.

Low Financial Leverage: At close, total net debt-to-EBITDA is
expected to be less than 2x and Fitch expects leverage to decline
with strong earnings and accumulation of cash in advance of the
maturity of the notes. Fitch believes this leverage profile helps
mitigate the issuer's development and execution risk and business
risks associated with production variability, market prices, size
and concentration.

DERIVATION SUMMARY

Northwest Acquisitions ULC's IDR of BB- reflects its smaller size
and share of the rough diamond market relative to ALROSA. The 'BB-'
IDR also reflects the company's concentration, secured capital
structure, and financial leverage relative to better rated, small,
more diversified, precious metals peers Buenaventura at 'BBB-' and
Hochschild at 'BB+'.

KEY ASSUMPTIONS

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

-- Stable pricing environment over the rating horizon.
-- Stable USD/CAD exchange rate environment.
-- Sales at production levels.
-- Production profile is consistent with Dominion Diamond
    Corporation's presentation dated May 23, 2017 titled
    "Exploration Workshop". In particular, new production from
    Misery Deep and Sable replaces some declines from existing
    pipes.
-- No common stock dividends.

RATING SENSITIVITIES

Future Developments That May, Individually or Collectively, Lead to
Positive Rating Action (not anticipated over the next 12-18
months)

-- Expectations of an improved production profile beyond 2021.
-- Expectations of free cash flow generation on average.
-- A positive rating action on the IDR may not result in positive

    rating actions on the instruments given ratings compression.

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

-- Failure of the diamond market to stabilize.
-- Substantial delays in development projects or material
    reduction in expected grade therefrom.
-- Expectations of sustainably negative free cash flows.
-- FFO net leverage expected to be greater than 2x-2.5x by 2021.

LIQUIDITY

Sufficient Liquidity: Fitch anticipates that operations will be
generally FCF positive and that at close of the transaction,
availability under the revolver will be at least $100 million.
Fitch expects no debt maturities until the $550 million notes are
due in five years. Fitch believes that minimum cash on hand would
be about $50 million and that short term cash needs would result in
drawings under the revolver in FY 2019 when capex peaks. The
company has some flexibility given finished goods inventories
(valued at cost) of $149 million at the July 31, 2017. Dominion
Diamond Corporation had scant debt historically and has a $210
million secured revolver due to mature in April 2019.

FULL LIST OF RATING ACTIONS

Fitch has assigned the following ratings to Northwest Acquisitions
ULC:

-- IDR 'BB-';
-- First Lien Senior Secured Revolving Credit Facility 'BB+/RR1';
-- Senior Secured Second Lien Notes 'BB/RR2'.

The Rating Outlook is Stable.


NORTHWEST ACQUISITIONS: Moody's Assigns Ba3 CFR; Outlook Stable
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned first-time ratings to Northwest
Acquisitions ULC, consisting of a Ba3 corporate family rating
(CFR), a Ba3-PD probability of default rating (PDR), a Ba1 first
lien secured rating, and a Ba3 second lien secured rating. The
ratings outlook is stable.

Northwest's proposed financing is comprised of a US$200 million
first lien secured revolving facility and US$550 million of second
lien notes due 2022. Proceeds will be used to fund its acquisition
of Dominion Diamond Corporation (announced on July 17), with the
transaction expected to close in Q4 2017.

The following summarizes rating action and Northwest's ratings:

Issuer: Northwest Acquisitions ULC

- Corporate Family Rating, Assigned Ba3

- Probability of Default Rating, Assigned Ba3-PD

- US$200 Million First Lien Secured Facility, Assigned Ba1 (LGD2)

- US$550 Million Senior Second Lien Secured Notes, Assigned Ba3
(LGD4)

Outlook, Assigned Stable

RATINGS RATIONALE

Northwest Acquisitions ULC's Ba3 CFR is driven by its expected low
leverage (adjusted debt/EBITDA of 1.2x at January 2018), good
mining jurisdiction (Canada), the established nature of the mining
operations, and strong market position as the fourth largest
diamond producer globally (~9 million carats/year), but constrained
by concentration risks (one mineral, two co-located mines) the
continual development costs of new kimberlite pipes, the
variability of mined diamond grades (size, quality, colour) and the
opaqueness of diamond pricing, including the managed supply-demand
characteristics of this luxury good.

The company has good liquidity (SGL-2), which includes an expected
cash balance of $35 million and an undrawn $200 million first lien
securing credit facility, following the completion of the proposed
financing and completion of the acquisition (late calendar 2017).
The credit facility will have covenants including maximum net debt
to EBITDA of 2.5x, with annual step downs and Moody's expects the
company will remain in compliance with ample cushion. Moody's also
expects Northwest to generate positive free cash flow of about $200
million in fiscal 2018 (Jan/18) but be near breakeven in fiscal
2019 as it spends to develop new kimberlite pipes, including Sable
and Jay.

The stable outlook reflects Moody's expectation that Northwest will
maintain its leverage below 1.5x and will fund the development of
new kimberlite pipes predominately with cash from operations. It
also incorporates Moody's views that the company will operate with
no future disruptions to operations.

The CFR could be upgraded to Ba2 if Northwest is able to
demonstrate a track record of consistent operations under its new
ownership and maintain adjusted EBIT margins above 30% (7% LTM
July17). An upgrade would also require the company to successfully
develop its planned new kimberlite pipes without cost overruns and
be funded primarily with cash flow. Adjusted debt/EBITDA would need
to be maintained below 1.5x (1.2x expected by 2018 fiscal yearend
at January 31, 2018, after acquisition closing).

The CFR could be downgraded to B1 if adjusted debt/EBITDA moves
above 2x or if the adjusted EBIT margin were likely to be sustained
below 15%, likely due to a deterioration in diamond prices, lower
mined grades, or operational challenges faced by the new owners, or
the company sees a deterioration of its liquidity profile.

The instrument ratings have been assigned pursuant to Moody's loss
given default assessment, although the Ba1 rating assigned to the
revolver has been reduced by one notch from the suggested model
outcome because of the lack of tangible asset security (share
pledges only).

Northwest Acquisitions ULC, ultimately owned by the Roy Dennis
Washington Trust, is acquiring Dominion Diamond Corporation, the
fourth largest diamond miner globally, supplying about nine million
carats/year of rough diamond assortments to the global market. It
owns an 89% interest in and operates the Ekati diamond mine and
holds a 40% ownership interest in the Diavik diamond mine, operated
by Rio Tinto plc., both located in the Northwest Territories of
Canada. The principal methodology used in these ratings was Global
Mining Industry published in August 2014.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Global Mining
Industry published in August 2014.


NORTHWEST ACQUISITIONS: S&P Assigns 'B+' CCR, Outlook Stable
------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said it assigned its 'B+' long-term corporate
credit rating to Canada-based Northwest Acquisitions ULC, an entity
affiliated with The Washington Companies. The outlook is stable.

S&P said, "At the same time, S&P Global Ratings assigned its 'BB'
issue-level rating and '1' recovery rating to the company's
proposed US$200 million first-lien senior secured credit facility.
The '1' recovery reflects our expectation of very high (90%-100%;
rounded estimate 95%) recovery in the event of default."

S&P Global Ratings also assigned its 'BB-' issue-level rating and
'2' recovery rating to the company's proposed US$550 million
second-lien senior secured notes. The '2' recovery reflects S&P's
expectation of substantial (70%-90%; rounded estimate 80%) recovery
in default.

S&P said, "The rating on Northwest primarily reflects our view of
the company's limited operating breadth related to the production
of rough diamonds exclusively from interests in two mines that
Dominion Diamond Corp. currently owns. On close of Northwest's
acquisition of Dominion Diamond (likely before calendar year-end
2017), the company's assets will consist of a 100% interest in
Dominion Diamond, the fourth-largest global producer of
diamonds--estimated at close to 10 million carats in fiscal 2018.
Dominion Diamond owns substantially all of the Ekati mine and 40%
of the Diavik mine (operated and 60% owned by Rio Tinto plc;
A-/Positive/A-1) in the Northwest Territories.

"The stable outlook reflects our expectation that Northwest will
generate and sustain FFO-to-debt of just over 30% in the next 12
months. We estimate he company will maintain relatively stable debt
levels over this period and fund its growth spending largely from
internally generated cash flows.

"A downgrade would occur if adjusted FFO-to-debt were to drop below
30% on a sustained basis in tandem with a material deterioration in
Northwest's free operating flows. In this scenario, we would expect
a significant decline in rough diamond prices, lower-than-expected
production due to unexpected operational issues at any of its
mines, or higher-than-expected capital expenditures.

"Although unlikely over the next 12 months, we could consider an
upgrade if the company generated and sustained an adjusted
FFO-to-debt ratio above 45% along with free operating cash
flow-to-debt of close to 10%. In this scenario, we would expect
stable or lower debt levels combined with higher-than-expected
production at cash costs below our current estimates. An
improvement in Northwest's business risk profile, likely from
increased operating breadth related to leverage-neutral
acquisitions, could also lead to an upgrade."


NOVATION COMPANIES: Wants Plan Exclusivity Extended to Dec. 29
--------------------------------------------------------------
NovaStar Mortgage LLC and NovaStar Mortgage Funding Corporation,
the remaining debtor-affiliates of Novation Companies, ask the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the District of Maryland to further extend the
exclusive period during which only the NMI and NMFC Debtors may
file a plan of reorganization and solicit acceptances of the plan
through and including Dec. 29, 2017, and Feb. 28, 2018,
respectively.

The NMI and NMFC Debtors have been operating under the protections
of Chapter 11 for approximately 14 months.  They relate that the
Plan of Novation has been declared effective, and the Chapter 11
case for affiliate 2114 Central, LLC, has been dismissed.  Citing a
BankruptcyData.com report, the Troubled Company Reporter on Aug. 2,
2017, said Novation Companies' Second Amended Joint Chapter 11 Plan
of Reorganization became effective, and the Company emerged from
Chapter 11 protection.  The Court confirmed the Plan on June 12,
2017.

On Aug. 3, 2017, the Court entered a third order extending, nunc
pro tunc to June 27, 2017, the Exclusive Filing Period through and
including Sept. 30, 2017, and the Exclusive Solicitation Period
through and including Nov. 30, 2017.  On Sept. 15, 2017, the
Debtors filed a motion to allocate fees and expenses of estate
professionals, which seeks authority to allocate fees and expenses
of estate professionals among the Debtors.  The Allocation Motion,
if granted, would have an important impact on the distribution of
assets of the Remaining Debtors.

On Sept. 25, 2017, the Court entered an order dismissing Chapter 11
case of 2114 Central, LLC (Case No. 16-19749), effective as of even
date.

The remaining Debtors (namely, NMI and NMFC) are parties to certain
pending litigation and legal proceedings.  The litigation include
(i) an action brought by Deutsche Bank National Trust Company
against NMI in New York Supreme Court, which is to proceed in the
state court or any other court of applicable jurisdiction pursuant
to the confirmation court order and (ii) an action brought by
National Credit Union Administration Board against NMFC in the
District of Kansas.

The NMI and NMFC Debtors assure the Court that they are now poised
to propose their own plan, and the exclusivity extension is thus
necessary.

According to the Debtors, their Chapter 11 cases qualify as large
and complex.  These jointly-administered cases consist of four
Debtors that were actively engaged in the businesses of mortgage
lending and finance and tax refund processing; facilitating the
securitization and sale of loans, and providing services to income
tax preparers that allowed the preparer to settle income tax
refunds in various forms for the tax provider.  Until the Effective
Date, the Debtors' efforts were largely concentrated on negotiating
a plan for Novation and its creditors: Novation had recently
undergone significant turnover on its board of directors and had
significant NOL's, in excess of $700 million, which the Debtors
have been focused on preserving.  Moreover, Novation's Plan
provided for the consummation of the HCS Transaction, requiring
significant efforts on the part of the Debtors.  Now that the
Debtors have effectuated Novation's Plan, the Remaining Debtors can
shift their efforts to proposing a plan that considers the impact
of the remaining Litigation and the most advantageous way to pay
all of their remaining creditors.

The Debtors tell the Court that to date, they have made substantial
good faith progress in these Chapter 11 cases.  The Debtors'
operations are performing well and the Debtors have achieved
stabilized cash flows.  The Debtors filed monthly operating reports
evidence the same.  The Debtors have also timely paid all U.S.
Trustee fees and administrative claims are current.

An extension of the Exclusive Periods will permit the Remaining
Debtors and their creditors to make additional progress towards an
exit from Chapter 11.  The Debtors have endeavored, through regular
interaction with the Creditors' Committee, and their professionals,
to establish and maintain a cooperative working relationship.  The
Remaining Debtors are not seeking the extension to delay
administration of the Chapter 11 cases or to exert pressure on
their creditors.  To the contrary, the Remaining Debtors request an
extension to continue the orderly, efficient and cost-effective
Plan process.  In light of the foregoing, an extension of the
Exclusive Periods is necessary, prudent and in the best interests
of the Debtors and their estates.

Additionally, termination of the Exclusive Periods would adversely
impact the Remaining Debtors' ability to maximize value.  If this
Court were to deny the Remaining Debtors' request for an extension
of the Exclusive Periods, any party in interest would be free to
propose a plan for each of the Remaining Debtors, potentially
causing the Remaining Debtors to expend resources to address
competing plans.  The fractured process could result in additional
litigation for the Remaining Debtors and increased administrative
expenses that would only serve to decrease recoveries to the
Remaining Debtors' creditors and delay the Remaining Debtors'
ability to confirm a plan in these cases.  The Debtors warn that
denying the extension could critically impair the Remaining
Debtors' ability to successfully liquidate and administer the
claims process, with no resulting benefit to the Remaining Debtors'
estates, creditors, employees, customers and other stakeholders.

ONSITE TEMP: Unsecureds to be Paid 10% over 5 Years in Latest Plan
------------------------------------------------------------------
General unsecured creditors of Onsite Temp Housing Corp. will be
paid 10% of their claims under its latest plan to exit Chapter 11
protection.

The restructuring plan proposes to pay creditors holding Class 49
general unsecured claims and deficiency claims in equal monthly
installments, without interest, over 60 months.   Payments will
start on the first day of the first month after the effective date
of the plan.

Class 49 is impaired and holders of these claims are entitled to
vote on the plan.

The plan will be funded initially by OTHC's cash on hand and "new
value" contribution in the amount of $300,000.  The contribution
will be used to make payments due on the effective date of the plan
and to provide a capital reserve.  

After the effective date, the plan will be funded by the continued
operations of the reorganized OTHC, according to its latest
disclosure statement filed on September 21 with the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court in Arizona.

PHH CORP: S&P Alters Outlook to Stable & Affirms 'B-' ICR
---------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said it revised its outlook on PHH Corp. to
stable from negative. S&P also affirmed its 'B-' issuer credit and
'B' unsecured debt ratings.

S&P said, "Our stable outlook is based on the company's strong
liquidity position, including $700 million of cash and equivalents
excluding cash held at VIEs as of August 2017, and a potential for
approximately $390 million from further sales of mortgage servicing
rights (MSRs)and the monetization of their investment in PHH Home
Loans Joint Venture. Though the company plans to return excess cash
to shareholders and has earmarked cash to pay down the remaining
$119 million of unsecured debt, the company will continue to assess
the appropriateness of any unsecured debt as part of its future
capital structure.

"Our current ratings on PHH reflect execution risks that remain as
the company focuses on its subservicing and portfolio retention
businesses. Though the company has made significant progress in
their pivot to PHH 2.0, there are significant challenges remaining
as the company tries to scale the business and increase
profitability.

"The stable outlook reflects our expectation that the company will
maintain sufficient liquidity to make a default event unlikely. At
the same time, we view the long-term viability of the company's
fundamental business model for PHH 2.0 as uncertain.

"We could lower the rating in the next 12 months if capital actions
or operating losses result in substantially reduced liquidity or
lower capital without a corresponding reduction in debt.

"If PHH is able to scale its PHH 2.0 business model by growing
their subservicing portfolio from new or existing clients to
generate positive EBITDA, we could raise the rating in the next 12
months."


PLAINS ALL: Fitch Rates Series B Preferred Equity Units 'BB'
------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has assigned a 'BB' rating to Plains All American
Pipeline, LP's (PAA) proposed offering of Series B
Fixed-to-Floating Rate Cumulative Redeemable Perpetual Preferred
Units. The Series B Preferred Units will represent perpetual equity
interest in PAA and will rank junior to all of its existing and
future indebtedness, pari passu to its existing Series A Preferred
Units, and senior to its common units.

Proceeds from the offering are expected to be used to repay amounts
outstanding under the credit facilities and commercial paper
program and for general partnership purposes, which may include,
among other things, repayment of indebtedness, acquisitions,
capital expenditures and additions to working capital. Fitch
applies 50% equity credit to both the Series A and Series B
perpetual Preferred Units in Fitch's financial metric calculations
as outlined in Fitch's "Non-Financial Corporates Hybrids Treatment
and Notching Criteria" (April 2017).

Fitch has also affirmed PAA's Long-term Issuer Default Rating (IDR)
and senior unsecured ratings at 'BBB-' and its short-term and
commercial paper rating at 'F3.' The Rating Outlook remains
Negative.

Fitch believes the recently announced plan to cut distribution and
lower leverage to be credit positive but remains concerned that
weaker than expected volumes, lower or range bound commodity prices
and differentials at or near current levels could continue to weigh
on operating results and lead to high sustained leverage. Fitch
would likely revise the Rating Outlook to Stable if PAA continues
to execute on its remaining asset sales, lowers gross debt and
shows progress that 2018 volumes and EBITDA are trending towards
management's guided range.

KEY RATING DRIVERS

Beneficial Size & Scale: PAA's operations are located in all of the
major U.S. and Canadian crude production areas and at substantially
all of the inland and coastal crude oil terminals and interchanges.
PAA's assets span the full crude oil midstream value chain for all
regions in which they operate providing competitive advantages and
an ability to capture incremental revenue for midstream services
across their system. PAA has been a long-time operator in the crude
midstream space, with long-term relationships with most of its
customer base. The size and span of PAA's system should provide
incremental growth opportunities for PAA across its asset base.

PAA's transportation and facilities business segments are composed
of strong, low-business risk assets with strong operating
characteristics that are expected to have modest EBITDA and cash
flow growth over the next 2 years. PAA's asset base spans all of
the major oil production basins and most of the critical crude
demand centers in the U.S. and Canada. PAA's fee-based revenue
growth is supported by new projects with substantial minimum volume
commitments from primarily investment grade counterparties. These
projects are expected to provide revenue growth even with near term
commodity price volatility and continued weakness in PAA's Supply
and Logistics operations.

Overcapacity and Volume Risks: Overcapacity and volume exposure are
key concerns for PAA. Its fee-based business with minimum volume
commitments will provide cash flow stability in the near term, with
support from expected volume growth across PAA's Permian focused
assets. However, declining exploration and production (E&P)
budgets, reduced contango opportunities, and flattened basis
differentials have the potential to drive further delays or
pullbacks in PAA's midstream volumes as well as continued weakness
in S&L and keep leverage elevated.

High Leverage: PAA's leverage is high relative to similarly rated
midstream MLP issuers. With the continued underperformance in PAA's
Supply and Logistics operations Fitch expects PAA's leverage as
defined as debt/Adj. EBITDA of 5.5x to 6.0x for 2017 well above
prior expectations. Fitch does expect leverage improvements in 2018
as fixed fee revenues and cash flows from growth projects primarily
at PAA's Transportation operation ramp up.

Fitch believes that PAA's announced distribution cut and plan to
address its leverage to be a credit positive, but remains concerned
regarding recent earnings performance. Fitch expects 2018 debt/adj.
EBITDA for 2018 of between 4.75x and 5.0x, with the recognition
that while much of this improvement is being driven by fixed fee
revenue sources there does remain potential for volumetric weakness
which could negatively impact earnings in the near term. Fitch is
concerned that lower or range bound commodity prices and
differentials at or near current levels could continue to weigh on
operating results and lead to high sustained leverage.

Distribution Cut Drives Leverage Improvement: PAA's 45%
distribution cut to $1.20/unit along with its plan to fund capital
needs with asset sales and this preferred equity offering will help
PAA manage its leverage down over the next several quarters.
Distribution coverage is expected to remain well above 1.0x as PAA
looks to cut gross debt (excluding preferred equity) from $11.4
down to $9.4 billion by the end of 1Q 2019.

DERIVATION SUMMARY

PAA's leverage (2017 leverage in the 5.5x to 6.0x) is high on a
relative to 'BBB-' rated, crude oil and refined products pipeline
focused peer Buckeye Partners, LP, which Fitch expects to have
leverage in the 4.5x to 4.8x range for 2017. However, its asset
base is larger and more diverse. PAA's operations are well
positioned to take advantage of Permian region crude production
growth, but its Supply and Logistics operations are expected to
remain challenged. Roughly 90% of the company's earnings and cash
flow for 2017 and 2018 are expected to be generated from its fixed
fee transportation and facilities operating segments providing much
needed cash flow stability, though a portion of these businesses
are still subject to volumetric risk. PAA's operations are smaller
and less diverse than larger 'BBB-' rated MLP and Midstream C-corp
names such as Energy Transfer Partners, LP, and Kinder Morgan,
Inc., which also have elevated leverage.

KEY ASSUMPTIONS

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

-- Distribution cut of 45% to $1.20/unit on annual basis for
    balance of 2017, and all of 2018, with marginal growth in
    distribution beyond $1.20/year for the forecast period beyond
    2018.

-- Capital spending of between $750mm and $1.1 billion 2017
    through 2020. Returns on projects assumed in the 6x to 8x
    multiple range.

-- WTI oil price that trends up from $50/barrel in 2017 to a
    long-term price of $62.50/barrel; Henry Hub gas that trends up

    from $2.75/mcf in 2017 to a long-term price of $3.25/mcf.

-- Asset sales consistent with management guidance for 2017 &
    2018.

-- Preferred equity offering completed in 2017 to help meet
    funding needs.

-- Supply and Logistics providing $0-$75 million in EBITDA
    contribution on an annual basis for the forecast period.

RATING SENSITIVITIES

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

Fitch would likely revise the Rating Outlook to Stable if PAA
successfully executes on its remaining asset sales and plans to
lower gross debt and evidence that 4Q 2017 and FY 2018 operating
and EBITDA performance is trending towards management's guided
range.

-- Leverage improvements, with PAA leverage (total debt/Adj.
    EBITDA) below 4.5x on a sustained basis with distribution
    coverage sustained above 1.0x could lead to a positive ratings

    action.

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

-- Leverage expected above 5.0x in 2018 and beyond.
-- Distribution coverage sustained below 1.0x.
-- Deterioration or significant delay in volumes across PAA's
    Transportation or Facilities segments leading to lower
    profitability for those segments.
-- Inability or unwillingness to fund capital needs with capital
    other than debt (asset sales, common equity, preferred equity,

    joint venturing, etc.).

LIQUIDITY

Liquidity Adequate: PAA's liquidity is adequate. The company has a
$3 billion commercial paper program backstopped by its $1.6 billion
unsecured revolving credit facility and its $1.4 billion senior
secured hedged inventory credit facility. In total, PAA has access
to $4 billion in revolving credit facilities, with combined
availability as of June 30, 2017 of $2.76 billion. The senior
unsecured revolving credit facility, senior secured hedged
inventory facility and senior unsecured 364-day revolving credit
facility treat a change of control as an event of default and also
require PAA to maintain a debt-to-EBITDA coverage ratio that, on a
trailing four-quarter basis, will not be greater than 5.0 to 1.0
(or 5.5 to 1.0 through and including the period ending Dec. 31,
2017 and thereafter during an acquisition period- generally, the
period consisting of three fiscal quarters following an acquisition
greater than $150 million). For covenant compliance purposes,
consolidated EBITDA includes adjustments, including those for
material projects and non-recurring expenses. Additionally, letters
of credit and borrowings to fund hedged inventory and margin
requirements are excluded when calculating the debt coverage ratio.
This provides a good margin of comfort that PAA will remain in
compliance with its covenants.

A default under PAA's credit facilities would permit the lenders to
accelerate the maturity of the outstanding debt. As long as the
company is in compliance, its ability to make distributions of
available cash is not restricted. As of June 30, 2017, PAA was in
compliance with all of its covenants, and Fitch expects the company
to maintain compliance throughout Fitch's forecast period of
2017-2019.

PLAINS ALL: Moody's Assigns Ba1 Corporate Family Rating
-------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a Ba3 rating to Plains All
American Pipeline LP.'s proposed Series B Perpetual Preferred Units
and affirmed its Ba1 Corporate Family Rating (CFR), Ba1-PD
Probability of Default Rating, Ba1 senior unsecured rating, (P)Ba1
senior unsecured shelf rating, SGL-3 Speculative Grade Liquidity
rating and its and Plains Midstream Canada ULC's (PMC)'s Not Prime
US commercial paper program ratings. The rating outlook is stable.

The proposed preferred units are rated Ba3, two notches below the
Ba1 CFR, reflecting their subordination to all of the company's
existing senior unsecured notes and the unsecured revolving credit
facility.

Assignments:

Issuer: Plains All American Pipeline L.P.

-- Pref. Stock Preferred Stock, Assigned Ba3(LGD6)

-- Senior Unsecured Commercial Paper, Affirmed NP

Issuer: Plains Midstream Canada ULC

-- Senior Unsecured Commercial Paper, Affirmed NP

RATINGS RATIONALE

Plains' Ba1 corporate family rating reflects 1) continued
challenges in growing EBITDA as expected despite spending an
estimated $8.4 billion on growth capex in the last five years, 2) a
history of reactive, slow and minimal changes to address high
leverage, and 3) a lack of confidence by Moody's in management's
ability to execute on their forecasts. The rating is supported by
midstream assets across key North American oil-producing regions.

Moody's expects Plains to continue to experience challenges in
turning growth capital into higher EBITDA and meaningfully lower
leverage as it continues to be challenged by low gathering margins
and very weak optimization results as newly constructed pipeline
capacity places pressure on margins.

Plains has adequate liquidity (SGL-3). Liquidity is particularly
important to Plains given the significant working capital
requirements for its supply and logistics segment and the
high-distribution MLP model. With Moody's adjusted EBITDA of about
$2.5 billion through June 2018, $1.2 billion of capex (including
$200 million of maintenance capital), approximately $600 million of
interest expense and taxes, around $1.1 billion of distributions,
free cash flow will be negative $400 million and Plains' will also
need to fund a $600 million Q2 2018 debt maturity. This aggregate
$1 billion funding need will met with a mix of debt, preferred
share issuance and asset sales proceeds.

The stable outlook reflects Moody's view that currently high
adjusted leverage of about 5.6x will moderate towards 4.5x through
2018, of which ½ turn of leverage is attributable to full equity
treatment of its' preferreds as a speculative grade company,
compared to 50% equity treatment when it was investment grade.

The Ba1 CFR could be downgraded if it appears that Plains will not
be able to reduce debt to EBITDA to a level sustainably below 5.5x
(5.6x at June17) or distribution coverage remains below 1x (0.9x at
June17).

The Ba1 rating could be upgraded if 1) Plains realizes predictable
and sustainable growth in EBITDA without reliance on its
optimization activities, 2) adjusted debt to EBITDA, excluding
optimization activity, appears to be comfortably sustainable below
4.5x (5.6x at June17), and 3) the timing and magnitude of future
growth in distributions is clear and the then-expected distribution
coverage will be sustainable above 1.25x (0.9x at June17).

Plains All-American Pipeline L.P., headquartered in Houston, Texas,
is engaged in the transportation, terminalling and storage of crude
oil, natural gas liquids and natural gas throughout North America.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Midstream
Energy published in May 2017.


PLAINS ALL: S&P Rates New Series B Preferred Stock 'BB'
-------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said it assigned its 'BB' issue-level rating to
Plains All American Pipeline L.P.'s proposed series B
fixed-to-floating rate cumulative redeemable perpetual preferred
units.

S&P's assigned intermediate equity credit (50%) to the issuance
because it believes that Plains meets its requirements for
permanence, subordination, and deferability. Plains intends to use
the net proceeds to repay amounts outstanding under the credit
facilities and commercial paper program and for general partnership
purposes, which may include the repayment of debt, acquisitions,
capital spending, and working capital purposes.

Houston-based Plains All American is a midstream energy master
limited partnership that primarily owns and operates crude oil
pipeline, storage, and marketing assets. The corporate credit
rating on Plains All American is 'BBB-' and the outlook is negative
(see the research update on Plains published on Aug. 28, 2017).

PQ CORP: Moody's Hikes Corp. Family Rating to B2 Following IPO
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service upgraded PQ Corporation's Corporate
Family Rating ("CFR") to B2 from B3 following the company's initial
public offering ("IPO") and expected use of net proceeds to reduce
balance sheet debt by nearly 20% by repaying most of the $525
million Floating Rate Notes due 2022. Moody's also affirmed the B2
ratings on the company's senior secured debt, on an unchanged
senior secured leverage position, and upgraded to Caa1 from the
Caa2 rating on the company's $200 million 8.5% Senior Notes due
2022. The rating outlook is stable.

"PQ will be much better positioned to start generating positive
free cash flow following the IPO," said Ben Nelson, Moody's Vice
President -- Senior Credit Officer and lead analyst for PQ
Corporation.

Issuer: PQ Corporation

-- Corporate Family Rating, Upgraded to B2 from B3

-- Probability of Default Rating, Upgraded to B2-PD from B3-PD

RATINGS RATIONALE

PQ Group Holdings, Inc., parent company of PQ Corporation,
commenced trading as a public company at $17.50 per share on
September 29, 2017. PQ intends to use the majority of net proceeds
to redeem most of its unrated $525 million Floating Rate Senior
Unsecured Notes due 2022 in the amount of $446 million or, if
underwriters exercise the overallotment option within the next 30
days, $513 million.

The upgrade of the CFR to B2 from B3 reflects a significant
reduction in debt, expectations that lower debt service costs will
result in stronger cash flow generation over the rating horizon,
and adoption of more conservative financial policies as a
publicly-traded company, including establishing a long-term net
leverage target of 3.0x-3.5x (Net Debt/EBITDA). PQ's balance sheet
debt will be reduced from $2.7 billion at June 30, 2017, to about
$2.2 billion on a pro forma basis for the planned debt reduction
with proceeds from the IPO. Moody's estimates a reduction in
adjusted financial leverage to the mid-to-upper 5 times
(Debt/EBITDA) from the high 6 times on a pro forma basis for the
twelve months ended June 30, 2017. Moody's calculations include
analytical adjustments for underfunded pension plans, operating
leases, and removal of certain add-backs to EBITDA included in the
definitions used in the company's credit agreement that add almost
a turn to management's pro forma adjusted financial leverage
calculation near 5 times. Moody's also estimates a reduction in
debt service costs by almost one-third.

Moody's adjusted instrument-level ratings for PQ based on the
anticipated change in the composition of the company's capital
structure following the planned debt repayment. The upgrade of the
$200 million 8.5% Senior Notes due 2022 to Caa1 from Caa2 reflects
a significant reduction in unsecured debt. The planned debt
repayment will reduce unsecured debt to the range of $250 to $300
million from $725 million at June 30, 2017. The unsecured debt will
remain effectively subordinated to a substantial amount of secured
debt. Likewise, the affirmation of the B2 senior secured debt
ratings considers that secured leverage will be unchanged by the
IPO and secured debt will represent the preponderance of debt in
the company's capital structure.

The B2 CFR is principally constrained by the company's leveraged
balance sheet, modest expected free cash flow generation, and
expectations for an acquisitive growth strategy over the rating
horizon. Leading market positions in diverse end markets, broad
customer base with many long-term relationships, and geographic
diversity lend stability to the financial performance of the
business compared to many other rated peers in the chemical
industry, and structural advantages related to the proximity of
silicates and sulfuric acid facilities to customer locations. The
rating also benefits from good liquidity and financial policies
that include planned deleveraging in the medium term.

The SGL-2 Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating ("SGL") reflects good
liquidity to support operations. Moody's expects that PQ will
generate at least $400 million of EBITDA (including proportional
consolidation of joint ventures) in 2018, well in excess of
expected cash interest and maintenance capital spending
requirements of less than $250 million. Continued growth capital
spending, combined with a significant number of one-time items,
likely will temper the company's ability to generate meaningful
free cash flow. The company will have moderate cash borrowings
under its $200 million asset-based revolving credit facility
("ABL"). The ABL has a springing financial maintenance covenant --
the only financial maintenance covenant. There are no financial
covenants under the term loan. PQ also has alternate forms of
liquidity in terms of a joint venture and meaningful assets in
non-guarantor foreign subsidiaries.

The stable outlook assumes that a combination of modest EBITDA
growth and improved free cash flow generation will enable the
company to reduce leverage toward 5.0x, generate retained cash
flow-to-debt in excess of 10% (RCF/Debt), and at least $35 million
of free cash flow in 2018. Moody's could upgrade the rating with
expectations for adjusted financial leverage sustained below 5
times, retained cash flow-to-debt sustained above 10%, free cash
flow-to-debt sustained above 5%. Moody's could downgrade the rating
with expectations for adjusted financial leverage above 6.5x,
negative free cash flow, or less than $100 million in available
liquidity.

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

ROOT9B HOLDINGS: Sold in Foreclosure Auction to Lenders
-------------------------------------------------------
Centriole Reinsurance Company, Ltd., as agent for root9B Holdings,
Inc.'s secured creditors, held a public auction on Sept. 28, 2017,
for all of the Company's collateral, at which no qualified bidders
other than the secured creditors appeared.  The Company's secured
creditors entered a bid of $12,536,482, representing the total
outstanding principal and unpaid interest owed to the secured
creditors, and acquired all of the Collateral at the auction,
thereby discharging the Company's secured indebtedness and
terminating a security agreement.

root9B Holdings previously announced that as a result of its
default on its secured indebtedness, it received a foreclosure
notice from Centriole that to satisfy the Company's outstanding
secured indebtedness, Centriole intended to sell substantially all
of the assets of the Company at an auction, pursuant to the
Security Agreement, dated Sept. 9, 2016, by and among the Company
and the secured creditors.  

As a result of the auction, the Company no longer has any operating
assets and has no ability to generate revenue.

In connection with the auction, Eric Hipkins resigned his positions
as a director and chief executive officer of the Company, effective
as of that date.

SAILING EMPORIUM: Wants More Time to File Plan, Finalize Sale
-------------------------------------------------------------
The Sailing Emporium, Inc., asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Maryland to extend the exclusive periods for filing a
plan of reorganization and soliciting acceptance of the plan by 120
days from their expiration dates through and including Jan. 27 and
March 29, 2018, respectively.

The Debtor says that cause exists to further extend the exclusive
periods because: (a) the nature and complexity of its Chapter 11
case warrants additional time; (b) the additional time will afford
the case parties time to negotiate a plan of reorganization or
liquidation that would provide a meaningful distribution to the
Debtor's creditors; (c) the Debtor is working in good faith towards
reorganizing its affairs, (d) the Debtor has made substantial
progress in its case, and (e) the extension will not prejudice any
party in interest and will enable the Debtor to conserve its
resources by not being forced to respond to competing plans.

The Debtor had the exclusive right up to and including March 1,
2017, to file a plan and, pursuant to Section 1121(d), it had the
exclusive right up to and including April 30, to solicit
acceptances of the plan.  These deadlines were further extended to
Sept. 29 and Nov. 29, respectively.

The Troubled Company Reporter reported on June 1, 2017, that the
Debtor had asked for the Sept. 29 and Nov. 29 deadlines.  The
Debtor at that time said Marcus & Millichap has conducted multiple
tours of the marina and one party recently provided the Debtor and
William Arthur Willis -- the Debtor's president -- and his wife
with a term sheet to purchase the Marina Property.  The Debtor
contended that the transaction is critical to the direction that it
takes in reorganizing its affairs, and it needs additional time to
fully consider the proposed offer to effectively negotiate and
prepare adequate information necessary for a plan.

The Debtor now says it needs additional time to finalize the sale
of its Marina Property, which was sold at auction.  The Court has
approved the sale to Brawner Company, Inc., for $3,800,000.
Closing on the sale is expected to occur after expiration of the
current exclusivity periods.  The Debtor needs additional time to
analyze apportionment of the sale proceeds that necessarily impacts
two separate bankruptcy proceedings which adds a layer of
complexity to this case warranting extension of the deadline so
that the Debtor and parties in interest can fully consider all
facets of a viable plan.

The Debtor and the Willises are working closely with their
professionals to analyze how the sale impacts both bankruptcy
estates and their creditors.  The Debtor says it needs additional
time to better understand the net proceeds from the sale of the
Marina Property and how to properly apportion those proceeds
between its bankruptcy estate and the Willises' estate.

The Debtor assures the Court that it is committed to pursuing all
avenues of reorganization or liquidation in the swiftest manner
possible given the complexity of this case.  Progress has been made
by the Debtor as demonstrated by the entry of various court
orders:

     -- Stipulation and Consent Order Resolving Motion for Order
        Modifying or Terminating Automatic Stay;

     -- Order Granting Second Motion for Order Extending
        Exclusive Periods to File Plan of Reorganization or
        Liquidation and Obtain Acceptances Thereto by 120 Days;

     -- Order on Emergency Motion to Prohibit the Debtor's
        Unauthorized Use of Cash Collateral;

     -- Order Granting Motion to Continue July 12, 2017 Hearing
        on Objection to Claim;

     -- Order Granting Application to Employ Martin J. Satinsky,
        CPA as Forensic Accountant to the Debtor;

     -- Order (I) Authorizing the Debtors to Select a Stalking
        Horse Purchaser and Approving Certain Bid Protections in
        Connection Therewith, (II) Approving Bid Procedures in
        Connection with the Sale of the Marina Property, (III)
        Approving Procedures Related to the Assumption and
        Assignment of Executory Contracts, (IV) Establishing Date
        for Auction and Approving Related Procedures, (V)
        Scheduling Sale Hearing and Related Deadlines, (VI)
        Approving Form and Manner of Notices, and (VII) Granting
        Related Relief;

     -- Consent Order Authorizing Continued Use of Cash
        Collateral for the Period Sept. 1, 2017, through
        Sept. 30, 2017, and Granting Adequate Protection;

     -- Amended Order (I) Authorizing the Debtors to Select a
        Stalking Horse Purchaser and Approving Certain Bid
        Protections in Connection Therewith, (II) Approving Bid
        Procedures in Connection with the Sale of the Marina
        Property, (III) Approving Procedures Related to the
        Assumption and Assignment of Executory Contracts, (IV)
        Establishing Date for Auction and Approving Related
        Procedures, (V) Scheduling Sale Hearing and Related
        Deadlines, (VI) Approving Form and Manner of Notices, and
        (VII) Granting Related Relief;

     -- Order Denying Motion of The Peoples Bank for Immediate
        Appointment of a Chapter 11 Trustee;

     -- Order Granting Application for Compensation for Services
        Rendered and Reimbursement of Expenses Incurred by
        Yumkas, Vidmar, Sweeney & Mulrenin, LLC as Counsel to
        the Debtor; and

     -- Order Denying m2 Lease Funds, LLC's Objection to Cure

SCIENTIFIC GAMES: Moody's Confirms 'B2' Corporate Family Rating
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service confirmed Scientific Games Corporation's
("SGC") B2 Corporate Family Rating and B2-PD Probability of Default
Rating. Moody's also confirmed Scientific Games International,
Inc.'s Caa1 rated senior unsecured notes and Caa1 rated senior
subordinated notes, and downgraded the rating on the company's
senior secured revolver, term loan and senior secured notes to B1
from Ba3. Moody's also assigned a B1 rating to Scientific Games
International, Inc.'s proposed $350 million senior secured notes.
The company's SGL-2 Speculative Grade Liquidity rating was
affirmed, and the outlook is stable. This concludes the review for
downgrade that was initiated on
September 21, 2017.

Proceeds from the proposed $350 million senior secured notes will
be used, along with revolver borrowings and cash on hand, to fund
the acquisition of NYX Gaming Group Limited ("NYX") for
approximately US$631 million plus related fees and expenses. The
acquisition of NYX is expected to close in the first quarter of
2018. In the event the acquisition does not close as expected,
Moody's expects that SGC will utilize the proceeds from the
proposed senior secured notes offering to reduce outstanding debt.

The confirmation of the B2 Corporate Family Rating reflects Moody's
expectations that the proposed transaction, although primarily debt
funded, does not materially change Moody's expectation for
continued reduction in leverage from current levels, which is key
to the company maintaining its existing rating. The confirmation
further reflects the acquisition's increased diversification of
SGC's revenue base and positions them for potential longer-term
benefits in sports betting and digital gaming growth.

Affirmations:

Issuer: Scientific Games Corporation

-- Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating, Affirmed SGL-2

RATINGS RATIONALE

Scientific Games Corporation's B2 Corporate Family Rating considers
the company's significant leverage that weakly positions SGC at its
current rating. Despite improvement in SGC's leverage since the
company's largely debt-financed $5.1 billion acquisition of Bally
Technologies, Inc. in November 2014, Moody's expects debt/EBITDA
will remain high through fiscal 2018. Another key credit concern is
the less than favorable outlook for slot machine demand that will
increasingly pressure revenue and earnings, both in terms of
pricing and demand, for the company's Gaming operating segment.

Partly mitigating SGC's high pro forma leverage is the company's
plan to further reduce costs and accelerate its deleveraging
efforts. Moody's currently expects debt/EBITDA will drop to 6.0
times by the end of fiscal 2018 through a modest amount of absolute
debt reduction, 5% annual revenue growth, and further expense
reductions. On a combined basis, Moody's expects these factors will
contribute to low double digit EBITDA growth in 2017 and 2018.
Positive rating consideration is given to SGC's large recurring
revenue base. The contract based nature of a majority of SGC's
revenue provides some level of revenue and earnings stability. The
company is also well-positioned to benefit from the growth of
digital gaming products. SGC owns a large portfolio of
complementary gaming products and services, both digital and
non-digital, that it can utilize and cross-sell globally among its
various distribution platforms.

SGC's stable rating outlook takes into consideration the company's
plans to reduce leverage, a key factor needed for SGC to avoid a
downgrade. The stable outlook is also supported by the company's
good liquidity profile. SGC benefits from having no near-term debt
maturities along with Moody's expectation that the company will
remain in compliance with the financial covenants contained in its
credit facilities agreement, and only use a relatively small amount
of its revolver on a regular basis to fund operating activities.

A ratings upgrade is not likely in the foreseeable future given
Moody's expectations that SGC's leverage will remain high. A higher
rating is possible over the longer-term to the extent the company
demonstrates sustainable earnings and free cash flow improvement
and achieves and maintains debt/EBITDA at or below 5.0 times. SGC's
ratings could be lowered if it appears that, for any reason, the
company is not tracking towards reducing debt/EBITDA towards 6.0
times by the end of fiscal 2018.

Scientific Games Corporation is a developer of technology-based
products and services and associated content for worldwide gaming,
lottery, and interactive markets. SGC is the parent company of
Scientific Games International, Inc., the direct borrower of over
$8 billion of SGC's rated debt. SGC is a publicly traded company
(NASDAQ:SGMS) with consolidated revenue for the latest 12-month
period ended June 30, 2017 of approximately $3 billion.

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


SCIENTIFIC GAMES: S&P Rates New $350MM Senior Secured Notes 'B+'
----------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings assigned its 'B+' issue-level rating to Las
Vegas-based lottery and gaming products and services provider
Scientific Games Corp.'s proposed $350 million in senior secured
notes due 2025. The recovery rating is '2' reflecting S&P's
expectation for substantial (70% to 90%; rounded estimate: 80%)
recovery for lenders in the event of a payment default. The notes
will be issued at Scientific Games' wholly-owned subsidiary
Scientific Games International Inc.

Scientific Games plans to use proceeds from the proposed notes,
along with cash on hand and revolver borrowings, to fund the
acquisition of NYX Gaming Group Ltd. for $631 million, and for
modest transaction-related fees and expenses.

RECOVERY ANALYSIS

Key analytical factors

S&P said, "Our recovery ratings on Scientific Games' secured debt
(including its revolver, term loan B-4, and secured notes,
including the proposed new secured notes), senior unsecured notes,
and subordinated notes are unchanged at '2', '5', and '6',
respectively. Our simulated default scenario contemplates a payment
default in 2020, attributable to a prolonged economic downturn that
reduces consumer spending on gaming, extends the gaming equipment
replacement cycle, and meaningfully reduces spending on new
equipment. We have modestly increased our assumed EBITDA at
emergence to account for the acquisition of NYX.

"We assume a reorganization of Scientific Games under a distressed
scenario, using a 6x multiple to value the company.

"We assume the revolver would be 85% drawn at the time of default.
Scientific Games' domestic operating subsidiaries, excluding the
company's social gaming business, are guarantors of the credit
agreement and secured notes. It is our understanding that the
operations of NYX  will not guarantee the credit agreement and
secured notes. We estimate that the total guarantor group will
generate around 75% of total EBITDA, and nonguarantors will
generate around 25%. As a result, we attribute 75% ($4 billion) of
the net available recovery value to domestic and nonsocial gaming
operating entities and 25% ($1.3 billion) to foreign operating
entities.

"Under our analysis, senior secured debtholders have a priority
claim against all of the available domestic value ($4 billion) and
a priority claim against 65% ($858 million) of the foreign value
($1.3 billion), which represents the value we attribute to the
foreign stock pledge. Total value attributable to senior secured
claims would be $4.8 billion. We estimate total first-lien senior
secured claims of $6.2 billion at default, leaving a first-lien
unsecured deficiency claim of about $1.4 billion. The first-lien
senior credit facilities' unsecured deficiency claim and the senior
unsecured notes claim (which we estimate at about $2.3 billion at
default) would constitute pari passu unsecured claims against the
remaining $462 million of recovery value, which represents the
value we attribute to the 35% unpledged foreign equity."

SCS HOLDINGS: S&P Lowers CCR to 'B' Amid Forsythe Tech Acquisition
------------------------------------------------------------------
U.S. technology holding company (of Sirius Computer Solutions Inc.)
SCS Holdings I Inc., a portfolio company of private equity firm
Kelso and Co., has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire
Forsythe Technology Inc., a provider of data-center technology and
related IT infrastructure and security services. The transaction
funding will consist of a $337 million incremental first-lien term
loan, $3 million incremental second-lien term loan, $5 million draw
on the revolving credit facility, and $20 million cash from the
balance sheet.

As a result, S&P Global Ratings lowered its corporate credit rating
to 'B' from 'B+' on San Antonio-based SCS Holdings I Inc. The
outlook is stable.

S&P said, "At the same time, we lowered our issue-level rating to
'B' from 'B+' on the company's $879 million first-lien credit
facility, comprising a $60 million revolving credit facility due in
2020 and a $819 million first-lien term loan due in 2022. The
recovery rating remains '3', indicating our expectation of
meaningful (50%-70%; rounded estimate: 55%) recovery for first-lien
debtholders in the event of default. We also lowered our
issue-level rating to 'CCC+' from 'B-' on the company's $153
million second-lien term loan due in 2023. The recovery rating
remains '6', indicating our expectation of negligible (0%-10%;
rounded estimate: 0%) recovery for second-lien debtholders.

"The downgrade reflects our view of Sirius' weakened financial risk
profile, with S&P Global Ratings' adjusted pro forma leverage
rising to the high-5x area from the mid-5x area, given the addition
of $342 million in total debt to fund the Forsythe acquisition. Our
expectation is for leverage to fall to the mid-5x area in the next
12 months due to debt repayment, synergies, and a return to
operating growth in the second half of 2017.

"The stable outlook reflects our view that SCS Holdings I Inc. and
wholly owned subsidiary Sirius Computer Solutions Inc. are likely
to grow in line with the overall IT market. Our base-case
expectation for the next 12 months is for adjusted debt to EBITDA
in the mid-5x area, due to the addition of incremental term loan to
fund the acquisition of Forsythe.

"We could raise the rating in the next 12 months if EBITDA growth
or debt repayment results in sustained leverage below 5x. This
would most likely be due to improving performance from the
company's largest product suppliers and contingent on management's
commitment to maintain leverage at or below these levels.

"We could lower the rating if SCS has integration issues following
the latest acquisition or U.S. corporate IT spending declines,
leading to increased competition and diminished operating earnings,
such that leverage is sustained above 7x without prospects for
improvement. This could also result from the company assuming a
more aggressive financial policy through further acquisitions or
dividends."

SEARS CANADA: Proposed Asset Sale Threatens to Sink Chairman's Bid
------------------------------------------------------------------
Andrew Scurria, writing for The Wall Street Journal Pro Bankruptcy,
reported that Sears Canada Inc. is on the verge of liquidation
after a court-appointed monitor proposed asset sales that would
undermine a pending bid by management to keep some stores in
business.

According to the report, FTI Consulting Inc., the monitor handling
Sears Canada's insolvency proceedings, plans to seek court approval
to dispose of 11 stores through lease surrenders or outright sales.
Sears Canada is under pressure from its bankruptcy lenders to
close deals for its assets and hold going-out-of-business sales at
its remaining locations, the Journal said, citing a report filed
with the on the Ontario Superior Court of Justice.

The Monitor's Third Report informed the court of the following:

   (a) the activities of the Sears Canada Group and the Monitor
since the last report of the Monitor;

   (b) an update on the Liquidation Process;

   (c) the Sears Canada Group's liquidity position and future cash
requirements, including the Sears Canada Group's receipts and
disbursements for the period ending September 23, 2017 and the
Sears Canada Group's revised cash flow forecast;

   (d) the results of the SISP to date;

   (e) an update on the going concern proposal put forward by Sears
Canada's Chief Executive Officer;

   (f) an update on the solicitation of liquidation proposals for
the remaining stores of Sears Canada;

   (g) the Sears Canada Group's motions for approval of various
sale transactions identified and negotiated through the SISP (the
"Sale Transactions") and certain distributions of proceeds of the
Sale Transactions to the lenders under the DIP Term Credit
Agreement (the "DIP Term Lenders") and the DIP ABL Credit Agreement
(the "DIP ABL Lenders") (the DIP Term Credit Agreement together
with the DIP ABL Credit Agreement, the "DIP Credit Agreements");
and

   (h) the Sears Canada Group's request for an extension of the
Stay Period (as defined in the Initial Order) to November 7, 2017.

A full-text copy of the Report is available at:

                     https://is.gd/1QxQzI

The sale agreements, if approved, would undercut efforts by Sears
Canada Executive Chairman Brandon Stranzl to piece together a
private equity-backed deal that would take a slimmed-down version
of the company out of bankruptcy and preserve thousands of jobs in
the process, as reported by The Wall Street Journal.

The 11 properties included in the monitor's proposal are among the
most profitable in the company's 220-store footprint and were
important to Mr. Stranzl's bid, the Journal said, citing people
familiar with the matter.

The monitor has so far rejected Mr. Stranzl's overtures over
concerns that his bid contained too many financial contingencies,
according to the report, the Journal related.  Mr. Stranzl's deal
was to be financed partly through private-equity capital sourced by
Vadim Perelman, the founder of Los Angeles-based Baker Street
Capital Management, and partly with debt financing from Wall
Street, the report added, citing people familiar with the matter.

SPECIALTY BUILDING: Moody's Assigns B2 CFR; Outlook Stable
----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a first-time B2 Corporate Family
Rating (CFR) and B2-PD Probability of Default Rating to Specialty
Building Products Holdings, LLC, (doing business as U.S. Lumber), a
two-step specialty building products distributor with presence in
14 states, following the recent announcement that U.S. Lumber is
acquiring National Industrial Lumber Company (NILCO). In a related
rating action, Moody's assigned a B3 rating to the company's
proposed senior secured term loan due in 2024. The rating outlook
is stable.

U.S. Lumber derives most of its revenues from residential
construction and repair and remodeling end markets. Following
completion of the acquisition of NILCO, U.S. Lumber will serve
industrial and commercial end markets, both of which complement its
existing portfolio. Proceeds from the new term loan and an equity
contribution from affiliates of Madison Dearborn Partners (MDP) and
management will be used to purchase NILCO and repay borrowing under
the old revolving credit facility.

The new capital structure will consist of a $50 million asset-based
revolving credit facility expiring in 2022 (unrated), which will be
undrawn at closing. U.S. Lumber Group, LLC and its parent holding
company, Specialty Building Products Holdings, LLC, are
co-borrowers and guarantors of the revolving credit. The borrower
for the $215 million senior secured term loan maturing in 2024 will
be Specialty Building Products Holdings, LLC.

The following ratings/assessments are affected by action:

- Corporate Family Rating assigned B2

- Probability of Default Rating assigned B2-PD

- Senior Secured Term Loan due 2024 assigned B3 (LGD4)

RATINGS RATIONALE

Specialty Building Products Holdings, LLC's (dba U.S. Lumber) B2
CFR reflects its leveraged capital structure resulting from the
buyout by affiliates of MDP in April 2017 and the acquisition of
NILCO. Adjusted gross balance sheet debt is expected to be
approximately $250 million. Moody's projects debt leverage
(adjusted debt/EBITDA) trending below 5.0x over the next 12-18
months. Moody's estimates that interest coverage (EBITA/interest
expense) will be above 2.0x for the same period. Debt leverage will
mostly improve from earnings growth, since term loan amortization
is only one percent per year. Solid end market fundamentals and
expanded branch network will boost revenues. Moody's expects
operating margin will improve from new product offerings, expanded
branch network, and resulting operating leverage. Increase in scale
from NILCO's purchase should enhance purchasing power and synergies
will contribute to better margins too.

Fundamentals for the U.S. residential construction end markets,
from which U.S. Lumber derives a large part of its sales, earnings
and cash flows, remain sound. Moody's forward views considers
domestic trends in the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB)
Remodeling Market Index - an industry survey that gauges remodeling
contractors' expectations of demand over the next three months. The
NAHB Remodeling Market Index's overall reading was 54.6 in August
2017, which indicates that the majority of contractors surveyed
believe market conditions are firm. In addition, Moody's projects
that total new housing starts in the U.S. could reach 1.28 million
in 2018, representing a 6% increase from about the projected 1.21
million in 2017. Moody's maintains a positive outlook for the
domestic home building industry.

The stable rating outlook reflects Moody's expectations that U.S.
Lumber will continue to grow its revenues and margins while
lowering its debt leverage and maintaining a liquidity profile
characterized by free cash flow throughout the year, good revolver
availability, and no near-term maturities.

A rating upgrade is not anticipated over the intermediate term.
Moody's indicated that ratings could be upgraded if U.S. Lumber
continues to grow its scale, maintain adjusted debt to EBITDA below
4.0x, and to generate higher amounts of absolute free cash flow.

Ratings could be downgraded if adjusted debt leverage were to
exceed 5.0x and adjusted EBITA to interest expense remain below
1.5x for a sustained period of time, or if the liquidity profile
deteriorates. Ratings could also be negatively impacted if the
company engages in large debt financed acquisitions or executes a
sizable dividend distribution.

The B3 rating assigned to the $215 million senior secured term loan
due 2024, one notch below the Corporate Family Rating, results from
its effective subordination to the $50 million ABL revolving credit
facility. The term loan is secured by a first lien on assets and
any assets not pledged to the revolver. It also has a second lien
on the assets securing the revolver. The value of the tangible
assets comprising the first lien is a fraction of the amount owed,
resulting in a lower recovery relative to the asset-based credit
facility. Even though the term loan also has a second-priority
security interest in current assets, Moody's believes the benefits
from the residual value of the second-lien collateral will be
minimal in a distressed scenario.

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

U.S. Lumber, headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, is a two-step
distributor, re-selling its products to national chain dealers, big
box retailers, independent and one-step distributors. Madison
Dearborn Partners, through its affiliates, is the primary owner.
Pro forma revenues for twelve months ended June 30, 2017 total
about $760 million.

THOMAS BEESON: Sale of Deerfield Property for $3M to Fund Plan OK'd
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Janet S. Baer of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern
District of Illinois authorized Thomas E. Beeson and Donna L.
Beeson to sell their real property commonly known as 1300 Half Day
Road, Deerfield, Illinois ("South Parcel"), to Continental Beeson
Corner South, LLC, for $3,250,000.

The sale is free and clear of all liens, claims, and encumbrances,
with all such liens, claims, and encumbrances, to attach to the
proceeds of the sale in the same order of priority and with the
same validity, force and effect as they now have against the South
Parcel.

The Debtors are authorized to pay or provide credits at closing for
customary closing costs, including but not limited to, title
charges, real estate tax prorations, and recording fees which the
Debtors are obligated to pay pursuant to the Purchase Agreement.

The sale of the South Parcel will be consummated pursuant to a plan
of reorganization and the provisions of Section 1146(a) apply to
prohibit the imposition of any stamp tax or similar tax on the sale
of the South Parcel.

The Notice of the Motion is adequate under the circumstances and
further notice is waived.

The automatic stay of Section 362(a) is modified to permit all
parties to the Purchase Agreement to take such actions to
consummate or finalize the agreement without the need for any
further notice and/or order of Court.

The Debtors will deposit as a plan deposit pursuant to Rule
3020(a), the sum of $1,500,000 from the proceeds of sale at Closing
into a segregated, interest-bearing escrow account, to be held and
disbursed solely in accordance with further order of Court, the
Confirmation Order or the Confirmed Plan.

TRINITY INDUSTRIES: Court Ruling No Impact on Fitch BB+ Rating
--------------------------------------------------------------
There are no rating implications for Trinity Industries (TRN) as a
result of the ruling by a panel of the Fifth Circuit on Sept. 30
overturning the False Claims Act judgement, according to Fitch
Ratings.

The ruling overturns a $682.4 million judgment against Trinity in
October 2014 in a case under the federal False Claims Act relating
to the company's ET Plus guardrail end terminal system. However,
this ruling could be followed by additional appellate steps by the
plaintiff in the matter. As a result, while the ruling reduces the
likelihood that Trinity will have to pay the judgment, the case
isn't fully resolved until the appeals process runs its course.
There are also a number of state cases as well as product liability
and class action lawsuits that are stayed pending resolution of the
appellate process.

Trinity's operating results have been constrained by a sharp drop
in new railcar orders beginning in 2015, particularly oil and gas
tank cars, partially mitigated by a sizable backlog, which as of
June 30, 2017 totaled approximately 27,580 railcars. The rail
group, which accounted for 65% of sales in the manufacturing
segment in 2016, is the key area of weakness, along with the inland
barge segment. Both segments could see sales declines of over 40%
or more in 2017 following 30%-plus declines in 2016. Trinity's rail
car orders were up modestly in the second quarter of 2017 versus
the year earlier quarter, suggesting the rail car sector may be at
a cyclical inflection point.

Trinity had healthy liquidity totaling $1.5 billion as of June 30,
2017. This included $988 million in cash and marketable securities
as well as a $600 million revolver that had $507 million available
after $93 million of letters of credit. The cash is in excess of
the company's operating needs, which Fitch estimates at $150
million to $200 million for its manufacturing business. Trinity
Industries Leasing Company (TILC) uses a $1 billion warehouse
facility expiring in April 2018, on which $832 million was
available as of June 30, 2017.

The corporate maturity schedule is favorable with the revolver as
the nearest maturity in May 2020. Trinity also faces the possible
put of its $450 million of subordinated convertible notes on June
1, 2018, which, together with a related tax liability, could be
covered by existing liquidity.

Fitch expects debt/EBITDA for the manufacturing operations will
increase from 1.7x at the end of 2016 to the high-3x range at the
end of 2017, on flat debt levels and lower EBITDA. Leverage is
expected to improve in 2018 assuming repayment of the subordinated
convertible notes at least in part with existing cash.

Fitch currently rates Trinity as follows:

-- Long-term Issuer Default Rating 'BBB-';
-- Senior unsecured revolving credit facility 'BBB-';
-- Senior unsecured notes 'BBB-';
-- Subordinated convertible notes 'BB+'.

The Rating Outlook is Stable.

TWH LIMITED: Evaneric Buying Spring Commercial Property for $2M
---------------------------------------------------------------
TWH Limited Partnership asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Western District of Texas to authorize the sale of his commercial
real property and improvements thereon located at 25807 IH 45,
Spring, Texas to Evaneric Holding, LLC for $2,000,000.

The Debtor holds certain real property, generally described as
follows: (i) the Commercial Property; and (ii) a residential real
property and improvements located at 25810 Oak Ridge Dr., Spring,
Texas.  The Residential Property is located directly behind the
commercial property on a contiguous lot.

This is a single asset real estate bankruptcy.  However, TWH is
current on its payments owed to the secured lender holding a
mortgage against the real property, is current with the payment of
ad valorem taxes assessed against the real property and also
maintains the required insurances for the properties.

The persons who own and control TWH and Howard Hu, Inc.
("Landlord") live in and manage the real property from San Antonio,
Texas.  In December 2013, Howard Hu acting as general partner of
TWH, leased under a written commercial lease agreement the real
property to certain entities known as 25807 TWH Ltd. and 25807 TWH
GP, LLC ("Tenants").

The written lease agreement between the parties contained a
provision for the Tenants to purchase restaurant equipment in the
premises and an option provision for the Tenants to purchase the
real property and improvements from Landlord under certain
conditions if Tenants were not in default under the lease and
exercised the option.  They never exercised the purchase option,
and defaulted under the lease by failing to pay rent when due.  

The Debtor terminated the lease and evicted Tenants -- i.e.,
commenced an action in JP Court to evict them.  It prevailed; the
JP Court ordered the eviction of Tenants.  The Tenants appealed,
and lost again.  The County Court at Law in Montgomery County
signed a judgment ordering that Landlord is entitled to possession,
and signed a writ of possession in favor of Landlord.  The Tenants
appealed again, to the Ninth Court of Appeals in Beaumont, Texas,
where they lost again.

After Tenants lost in the County Court at Law, they filed a lawsuit
against the Debtor on April 26, 2016, in the 284th Judicial
District Court of Montgomery County, Texas, which was styled 25807
TWH LTD and 25807 TWH GP, LLC vs. THW Limited Partnership, and
assigned Cause No. 16-04-04940.  The action is currently stayed by
the automatic stay in effect in the case.

On March 7, 2017, the Landlord timely filed a Notice of Removal of
the Lawsuit to the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of
Texas and a motion to transfer the lawsuit to this Court as the
matters pending therein are core matters in the bankruptcy case.
The Debtor obtained buyers for both properties and filed an
Application to Approve Sale of Real Property Free and Clear of
Liens, Encumbrances and Interests.  

On May 17, June 6, July 25-26, and Aug. 8, 2017, the Court
conducted extensive hearings on its Application to sell the
properties, along with several other related motions filed by the
parties.  The proposed buyers for the Residential Property did
agree to extend closing date under their contract.  On Aug. 31,
2017, the Court entered an Order approving the proposed sale of the
Residential Property.  

The Debtor's Court-approved, David Salazar, has continued to
actively market the Commercial Property since the Debtor lost its
previous buyer.  Mr. Salazar has now found a very motivated Buyer
for the Commercial Property who is willing to pay $2,000,000 cash
for the property, free and clear of any liens, encumbrances and
interests.

The parties have executed a sales contract and the proposed Buyer
has deposited $20,000 in earnest money with the title company.  The
check for the earnest money is drawn on a bank account for an
entity known as "Woodlands Specialty Hospital, PLLC."

Because the sales contract calls for a cash purchase, the Buyer
wants to close as soon as possible. The contract calls only for a
10 days feasibility period, with a closing to occur within five
days thereafter, assuming the Court authorizes the Debtor to
complete the sale.  The Buyer has indicated that time is of the
essence and the Debtor does not want to risk losing another sale.

The Property was listed in the Debtor's Schedules with a value of
$2,138,983.  This valuation was based upon offers their broker had
received at the time the Schedules were filed.  The Montgomery
County Appraisal District values the Property at $2,119,500;
however, this valuation does not take into account the
deteriorating condition of the Property.

Although Tenants claim to be the owners of the properties, they are
neither insuring the properties nor paying the ad valorem property
taxes assessed against the properties.

These liens exist against the Property:

     a. Montgomery County Tax Assessor-Collector – This entity
collects all ad valorem property taxes assessed against the
Property.  These taxes are current at the present time, as the
Debtor paid them in full (more than $53,000) and in a timely manner
on Jan. 31, 2017.  Therefore, the only taxes that may be due this
entity would be pro-rated 2017 ad valorem taxes due at closing.
TWH proposes that all taxes due and owing to this entity and
assessed against the Property at the time of closing be paid
directly by the title company closing the sale.

     b. Commerce National Bank ("CNB") is the DIP's secured lender.
CNB holds a perfected first lien Deed of Trust against the
Property, securing a note in the amount of $743,000.  TWH estimates
that the balance due on this note was $634,996 as of the petition
date.  The Debtor was current of the monthly mortgage payments to
CNB pre-petition, because of loans or contributions to the Debtor
by its owners or by an entity owned by TWH's owners.  TWH intends
to keep the CNB loan current post-petition until the commercial
property sells; however, this imposes a hardship on the Debtor as
it has no income and can only make the payments by borrowing from
its owners.  The Debtor proposes that all sums due and owing to CNB
be paid directly by the title company closing the sale of the
Property, including attorney's fees and expenses which have been
incurred by CNB in connection with this case.

     c. As noted, the Tenants and its General Partner have taken
the position that they are the "owners" of the Property.  They
breached the lease and have sued TWH (their former landlord)
claiming the lease was really a purchase.  The Tenants have no
interest in the Property, and the sale should therefore go forward.
In the alternative, because the Tenants actually claim an
"interest" in the Property, the Court can and should authorize the
sale of the Property free and clear of such purported interest, as
such interest is in bona fide dispute.

It is not clear at the present time what the exact amount of
proceeds would be from the proposed sale, however a general
estimate would be in excess of $1.2 million.  The Debtor believes
that the proceeds will be sufficient to pay all creditors holding
allowed claims in this case in full.  

Both the TWH Entities and another entity believed to be controlled
by the TWH Entities' principals have filed significantly large
claims in this case.  The Debtor disputes such claims in full and
will be filing an objection to both claims.  TWH therefore asks
that the Court directs all of the remaining proceeds be paid by the
title company closing the sales into the registry of Court, where
the funds would be held pending further order of the Court.

The proposed sale is in the best interest of TWH's bankruptcy
estate, and constitutes an exercise of reasonable, proper and sound
business judgment.  There is an immediate necessity for the sale to
be closed.  The Commercial Property has fallen into a state of
great disrepair and has previously sustained damage which was
related to a roof leak.  Further, the Debtor is to pay more than
$130,000 per year in debt service, property taxes, insurance and
maintenance for the property which could not be sold or rented due
to the Tenants unfounded litigation.  Accordingly, the Debtor asks
the Court to approve the relief sought.

The Debtor further asks that the Court expressly directs entry of
one or more orders approving the sale contemplated and providing
that stay of Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure Rules 6004(g)
and 6006(d) be waived, modified and not applicable to the sale of
the Property.

VALEANT PHARMA: Moody's Rates New Sr. Secured Notes Due 2025 'Ba3'
------------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a Ba3 rating to the new senior
secured notes of Valeant Pharmaceuticals International, Inc. There
are no changes to Valeant's existing ratings including the B3
Corporate Family Rating, B3-PD Probability of Default Rating, Ba3
(LGD 2) senior secured rating, Caa1 (LGD 5) senior unsecured rating
and the SGL-2 Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating. The rating
outlook remains negative.

Proceeds of the new secured notes will be to fund a tender offer
for certain tranches of senior unsecured notes. The transaction is
leverage-neutral, but credit positive based on a modest extension
of Valeant's debt maturity profile.

Ratings assigned:

Senior secured notes due 2025 at Ba3 (LGD 2)

RATINGS RATIONALE

Valeant's B3 Corporate Family Rating reflects very high financial
leverage with gross debt/EBITDA of about 7.5 times, and significant
challenges in restoring organic growth. Patent expirations over the
next 12 to 18 months will erode revenue, and other business lines
face pricing pressure and weak volume growth. Valeant also faces
considerable uncertainty related to government investigations and
other legal matters. High financial leverage creates refinancing
risk, although Valeant does not face any material debt maturities
until 2020.

The credit profile is supported by Valeant's good scale with $9
billion of revenue, good diversity, high margins, and solid cash
flow. Management is commited to reducing debt/ EBITDA, using excess
cash flow for debt repayment. Patent expirations will moderate in
2019, creating the potential for greater stability in Valeant's
core businesses.

The rating outlook is negative, reflecting the combination of very
high financial leverage, uncertainty around its ability to
stabilize operating trends, and unresolved legal issues. Without
greater progress in the turnaround, these factors will limit
broader access to the capital markets, which will eventually be
required to refinance bond maturities.

Factors that could lead to an upgrade including restoring
credibility through solid performance and underlying growth,
reducing debt with free cash flow, and progress at resolving legal
proceedings. Specifically, sustaining debt/EBITDA below 6.0 times
could lead to an upgrade.

Factors that could lead to a downgrade include significant
reductions in pricing or utilization trends, escalation of legal
issues or large litigation-related cash outflows, or asset
divestitures resulting in a substantially weaker business profile.
Specifically, sustaining debt/EBITDA above 7.5 times could lead to
a downgrade.

Headquartered in Laval, Quebec, Valeant Pharmaceuticals
International, Inc. is a global specialty pharmaceutical and
healthcare company with expertise including branded dermatology,
gastrointestinal disorders, eye health, neurology, branded generics
and OTC products. Revenues total approximately $9 billion.

The principal methodology used in this rating was Pharmaceutical
Industry published in June 2017.



VALEANT PHARMACEUTICALS: S&P Affirms 'B' CCR, Outlook Stable
------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings today said it affirmed its 'B' corporate credit
rating on Quebec-based Valeant Pharmaceuticals International Inc.
The rating outlook remains stable.

S&P said, "At the same time, we affirmed our 'B-' issue-level
rating on the company's senior unsecured debt. The '5' recovery
rating is unchanged, indicating our expectation for modest
(10%-30%; rounded estimate: 20%) recovery in the event of a payment
default.

"We also assigned our 'BB-' issue-level rating and '1' recovery
rating to Valeant's proposed $1 billion eight-year senior secured
notes. The '1' recovery rating indicates our expectation for very
high (90%-100%; rounded estimate: 95%) recovery in the event of a
payment default.

"The affirmations follow Valeant's announcement that it will issue
$1 billion in new eight-year senior secured notes to repay a total
of $1 billion in senior unsecured debt from three issues maturing
in 2020. Although we view the transaction as a modest credit
positive, given the longer pro forma maturity profile, we continue
to expect leverage to exceed 7x in 2017 and 2018 and the company to
generate over $500 million in discretionary cash flow annually.
Moreover, while we view Valeant's substantial scale and revenue
diversity favorably, the company faces very high exposure to patent
losses over the next two years, and we believe its product pipeline
is insufficient to offset revenue and EBITDA declines in the next
12-18 months. This is despite our belief that the company has a
very diverse product portfolio, with limited therapeutic
concentration and only one drug, Xifaxan, a treatment for irritable
bowel syndrome, accounting for more than 10% of revenues.

"The stable rating outlook reflects our expectation that Valeant's
debt leverage will remain above 7x over the next two years though
the company will continue to generate substantial free cash flow
(aided by a low tax rate). The outlook hinges on the company's
ability to demonstrate a sustainable trajectory of positive growth
in profitability, excluding the impact of the significant patent
expirations in 2017 and 2018. This would require the company to
continue to grow its more successful franchises, including its
Bausch & Lomb segment and Xifaxan.

"We could lower the corporate credit rating if we believe
reputational, legal, or regulatory developments are likely to
undermine Valeant's ability to generate substantial free cash flow,
which would indicate serious issues surrounding the quality and
sustainability of its businesses. We could also lower the rating if
we believe the company will be unable to restore growth in its core
franchises over the next several quarters, as this might lead us to
conclude that the company's cannot sustain its current level of
cash flow over time.

"We view an upgrade as very unlikely over the next year, given the
company's ongoing business transition, the headwinds from patent
losses, and the significant uncertainty surrounding its EBITDA
generation potential. Longer term, we see multiple paths to a
higher rating. We could raise the rating if we gain confidence in
the company's ability to reduce and sustain debt leverage below 5x,
which we view as highly unlikely absent significant further asset
sales and debt repayment. We could also raise the rating if we
became more confident that the company can sustainably grow the
business and that it comfortably manage regulatory and litigation
risks. Under these scenarios, we would also need to be confident
that the business has stabilized and there is better visibility
into the company's financial performance."


VANGUARD HEALTHCARE: Whitehall's Sale of All Assets for $26M OK'd
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Randal S. Mashburn of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Middle District of Tennessee authorized Vanguard Healthcare, LLC
and its affiliated Debtors to assume the Asset Purchase Agreement,
dated as of Aug. 17, 2017, by and among Whitehall OpCo, LLC and Del
Prado Boco Realty, LLC or its assigns, in connection with the sale
of substantially all assets of Whitehall for $26,000,000.

A hearing on the Motion was held on Sept. 21, 2017.

At Closing and as a condition to the Closing, indefeasible payment
in cash in the amount of the HFS Payment (i.e., $21,000,000) will
be paid directly to Healthcare Financial Solutions, LLC (assignee
of General Electric Capital Corp.) ("HFS"), for application in
accordance with the terms of the HFS Loan Documents, as part of the
Cash Purchase Price paid by the Buyer under Section 2.4 of the
Agreement.  It is adjudicated that HFS is, and will be, entitled to
indefeasible retention of the full HFS Payment made to HFS at
Closing as required by the Order.  

HFS' consent to the sale of the Assets to the Buyer free and clear
of its Liens is specifically subject to the HFS Payment being made
in cash directly to HFS at Closing.  Effective upon and only upon
HFS' receipt of the HFS Payment, HFS agrees and consents that all
proceeds of the Whitehall Accounts Receivable collected after the
Closing, which Whitehall will collect and hold for the benefit of
creditors in its Chapter 11 case in the Whitehall Segregated
Account, may be used to fund the Debtors' Plan.

Notwithstanding the Notice of Intent to Assume and Assign Executory
Contracts provided to the parties to certain contracts and leases,
no objections to the assumption and specified cure amounts have
been filed.  Further, as of the Sale Hearing, the Buyer has not
designated any contracts to be assumed other than (i) the provider
agreement with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services;
(ii) the Pharmacy Contract; and (iii) the Copier Contract.  

Nevertheless, pursuant to Sections 105(a) and 365 of the Bankruptcy
Code, and subject to and conditioned upon the Closing of the Sale,
the Debtor's assumption and assignment to the Buyer, and the
Buyer's assumption on the terms set forth in the Agreement as
modified by the Order, of the Desired Contracts is approved.

With respect to the Evergreen Rehabilitation contract with
Whitehall set forth on the list of Desired Contracts,
notwithstanding the $0 Cure Amount listed with respect to the
Evergreen/Whitehall Contract, the Debtors and Evergreen acknowledge
that such Cure Amount is $560,059.

The Court previously approved the Debtor's retention of New Century
Capital Partners as its financial advisor with respect to the Sale
("NCCP Order").  Pursuant to Section 328 of the Bankruptcy Code and
the NCCP Order, the Debtor is authorized to pay to New Century
Capital Partners a transaction fee in the amount of $520,000,
payable at Closing.

The Debtors agree that the unsecured creditors holding Allowed
Claims in the Whitehall Chapter 11 case will be paid in full within
Class 5 in the Debtors' Plan, as it may be further amended, and
further if the Debtors' Plan is not approved and the assets of
Whitehall is distributed separately from the remaining Debtors so
that the creditors of Whitehall are not paid in full as
contemplated under the Debtors' Plan, the remaining Debtors agree
to pay to the Whitehall estate an amount sufficient to provide 25%
of those Class 5 Allowed Claims, after the payment of
administrative and priority expenses incurred prior to the Closing,
but before the deduction of liquidation expenses to distribute the
funds.

The Court finds that the sale is a condition to the Third Amended
Plan and will close after confirmation of the Third Amended Plan
and accordingly pursuant to Florida Department of Revenue v.
Piccadilly Cafeterias, Inc., the stamp-tax exemption would be
applicable for the closing of the sale and the recording of any
transfer documents thereto that occurs after the confirmation of
the Third Amended Plan.  The Buyer, in its discretion, may
holdback, from the sale, an amount equal to the recording tax until
the recording of the transfer documents.

Notwithstanding the foregoing or any other provision of the Order,
nothing in the Order alters or affects the Cash Collateral Order,
or any of the claims, Liens, or other rights granted to or held by
HFS against the Assets under the Cash Collateral Order or under the
HFS Loan Documents, unless and until HFS receives indefeasible cash
payment of the HFS Payment at Closing, as required by the Order.

VERACRUZ INVESTMENTS: Sale of Lawrenceville Property for $140K OK'd
-------------------------------------------------------------------

District of Georgia authorized Veracruz Investments, LLC's sale of
unencumbered property located at 1175 Arbour Avenue, Lawrenceville,
Gwinnett County, Georgia to Gerardo Bagcat for $140,000.

An expedited hearing on the Motion was held on Sept. 28, 2017.

The sale is free and clear of all liens, claims, encumbrances, and
other interests of any kind or nature whatsoever.

From the proceeds of the sale authorized, the Debtor will (i) issue
a credit to Purchaser against the purchase price at the Closing
sufficient to pay ad valorem taxes assessed against the Property
through the closing of the sale; (ii) pay all usual, customary, and
reasonable costs associated with the sale as provided in the
Contract and in the Listing Agreement, including the 6% brokerage
fee for the Debtor's and the Purchaser's brokers collectively; and
(iii) pay to Respondent Gwinnett County Tax Commissioner, as its
interests lie, the total amount of its tax-related claims against
the Property, as definitively calculated at closing, all in full
satisfaction of its resulting liens.

Time is of the essence in closing the Transactions, and the Court
expressly finds that there is no just reason for delay in the
implementation of this Order and that the closing can occur
immediately upon entry of the Order.  Accordingly, the stay of
orders authorizing the use, sale, or lease of property as provided
for in Bankruptcy Rule 6004(h) will not apply to the Order, and it
is immediately effective and enforceable.

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.
