186-14 WILLIAMSON: Oct. 18 Hearing on 1st Amended Plan Disclosures
------------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of New York will
convene a hearing on Oct. 18, 2017, at 11:00 a.m. to consider
approval of the first amended disclosure statement filed by 186-14
Williamson Ave. Corp.

Oct. 15, 2017, is the last day for filing and serving written
objections to the disclosure statement.

The Class 2 Claim includes a claim by the New York City Department
of Finance in the sum of $21,401.41 and New York State Department
of Taxation in the amount of $30,486.91. The Class 2 Claim also has
a claim by the Internal Revenue Service in the sum of $420.24.
These claims will be paid in full with interest throughout the life
of the Plan.

The New York State Department of Taxation was not included as a
Class 2 claimant in the original version of the plan.

The Troubled Company Reporter previously reported that the Plan
offers General Unsecured Creditors the opportunity to obtain a cash
distribution of approximately 100% on account of their allowed
claims. The holders of Allowed Class 3 Unsecured Claims will
receive no less than 100% of claims.  

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

        http://bankrupt.com/misc/nyeb1-17-40503-48.pdf

              About 186-14 Williamson Ave.

186-14 Williamson Ave., Corp., is a single asset real estate
company.  The mortgage was paid for several years until the
property became run down and the Debtor lost its tenants.  At this
time, the premise is vacant and boarded up and is expected to be
rehabilitated.

The Debtor sought protection under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy
Code (Bankr. E.D.N.Y. Case No. 17-70603) on Feb. 2, 2017.  

Alan C. Stein, Esq., at the Law Office of Alan C. Stein, P.C.,
serves as the Debtor's attorney.

On Feb. 3, 2017, the Debtor re-filed its petition (Bankr. E.D.N.Y.
Case No. 17-40503).  The petition was signed by Robin Eshaghpour,
president.  A copy of the petition is available for free  at
https://is.gd/dzfpHH

The case is assigned to Judge Nancy Hershey Lord.  

At the time of the filing, the Debtor estimated assets of less than
$500,000 and liabilities of less than $50,000.

No official committee of unsecured creditors was appointed by the
Office of the U.S. Trustee.


A&B LODGING: Wants Authority to Use TSB Cash Collateral
-------------------------------------------------------
A&B Lodging Three, LLC asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Eastern District of Tennessee for authority to use the cash
collateral in which Tennessee State Bank may assert an interest,
for the purpose of paying the ongoing expenses of operating its
business and to pay administrative expenses.

The Debtor is indebted to Tennessee State Bank in the approximate
amount of $1,940,806. Pursuant to a Deed of Trust, the Debtor
granted Tennessee State Bank a lien on the income, rents, leases
and profits of the motel located at 531 Patriot Drive, Dandridge,
TN 37725. Therefore, the Debtor believes that Tennessee State Bank
has an interest in the cash collateral.

The Debtor claims that the tax appraisal of the motel property is
$2,074,100, and the personal property located in the motel has a
separate value of approximately $150,000. Based only on these tax
appraisals, the collateral securing Tennessee State Bank's debt has
a value of $2,224,100 while the total indebtedness owed to
Tennessee State Bank is $1,980,806.

Therefore, the Debtor asserts that there exists sufficient equity
in the collateral to protect the interest of Tennessee State Bank.

A full-text copy of the Debtor's Motion, dated October 3, 2017, is
available at https://is.gd/xp2MGo

Tennessee State Bank can be reached at:

          2210 Parkway

Bauknight.  The Debtor is represented by Barry W. Eubanks, Esq. at

ACER THERAPEUTICS: Appoints New Chief Medical Officer
-----------------------------------------------------
Acer Therapeutics Inc. has appointed William T. Andrews, M.D., FACP
as chief medical officer of the Company to succeed Robert D.
Steiner, M.D. in that position.

"We are pleased to welcome Dr. Andrews to the executive management
team, as we continue to successfully and rapidly advance our lead
product candidate, EDSIVO, a potential life-saving therapy for
patients with vEDS," said Chris Schelling, CEO and Founder of Acer.
"Dr. Andrews brings tremendous experience to this role and will be
instrumental in preparing our NDA submission of EDSIVO, which we
expect to accomplish in the first half of 2018, and we look forward
to his guidance in the medical marketplace as we plan for our next
steps.  We thank Dr. Steiner for his significant contributions to
Acer during a critical time in the Company’s growth."

Dr. Andrews joins Acer Therapeutics as chief medical officer after
having worked in the biotech/pharmaceutical industry for 17 years
in both Clinical Development and Medical Affairs in multiple
therapeutic areas, with a focus and extensive experience in rare
diseases.  Dr. Andrews has significant medical marketplace and
product launch experience, having served as the medical lead for
six product launches, including Xopenex HFA, Brovana, Alvesco,
Omnaris, Catena, and Juxtapid.  Most recently, he provided
strategic consulting services to rare disease companies in Clinical
Development, Medical Affairs, Go-To-Market/Launch planning, and
Business Development/Corporate Strategy.  Previously, Dr. Andrews
held senior leadership positions and positions of increasing
responsibility at Aegerion Pharmaceuticals, Santhera
Pharmaceuticals, Sepracor, and ClinQuest.  He received his
undergraduate degree in Biology from Harvard University and his
M.D. degree from Yale University School of Medicine.  Dr. Andrews
practiced medicine for 7 years full-time and 11 years part-time in
the Boston area as a board-certified Internist and an Attending
Physician at Brigham and Women's Hospital, and was on the Clinical
Faculty at Harvard Medical School.

                    About Acer Therapeutics

Headquartered in Cambridge, MA, Acer Therapeutics --
http://www.acertx.com/-- acquires, develops and intends to
commercialize therapies for patients with serious rare and
ultra-rare diseases with critical unmet medical need.  Acer's
late-stage clinical pipeline includes two candidates for severe
genetic disorders for which there are few or no FDA-approved
treatments: EDSIVO (celiprolol) for vEDS, and ACER-001 (a fully
taste-masked, immediate release formulation of sodium
phenylbutyrate) for urea cycle disorders (UCD) and Maple Syrup
Urine Disease (MSUD).  There are no FDA-approved drugs for vEDS and
MSUD and limited options for UCD, which collectively impact more
than 4,000 patients in the United States.  Acer's products have
clinical proof-of-concept and mechanistic differentiation, and Acer
intends to seek approval for them in the United States by using the
regulatory pathway established under Section 505(b)(2) of the
Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act, or FFDCA, that allows an
applicant to rely for approval at least in part on third-party
data, which is expected to expedite the preparation, submission,
and approval of a marketing application.

On Sept. 19, 2017, Acer Therapeutics Inc. completed the merger with
Opexa Therapeutics, Inc., under which the stockholders of Acer
(including investors in a financing that closed concurrently with
the merger) become holders of 88.8% of combined company's
outstanding common stock, with Opexa shareholders retaining 11.2%.

Opexa incurred a net loss of $7.98 million for the year ended Dec.
31, 2016, compared to a net loss of $12.01 million for the year
ended Dec. 31, 2015.  As of June 30, 2017, Opexa had $1.98 million
in total assets, $368,547 in total liabilities and $1.61 million in
total stockholders' equity.

Malonebailey, LLP -- http://www.malonebailey.com/-- in Houston,
Texas, issued a "going concern" qualification on the consolidated
financial statements for the year ended Dec. 31, 2016, citing that
the Company has incurred recurring losses, negative operating cash
flows and an accumulated deficit that raise substantial doubt about
its ability to continue as a going concern.


ACTIVECARE INC: Incurs $4.88 Million Net Loss in Second Quarter
---------------------------------------------------------------
ActiveCare, Inc., filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission
its quarterly report on Form 10-Q reporting a net loss attributable
to common stockholders of $4.88 million on $1.85 million of total
revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2017, compared to a
net loss attributable to common stockholders of $15.50 million on
$1.59 million of total revenues for the three months ended March
31, 2016.

For the six months ended March 31, 2017, the Company reported a net
loss attributable to common stockholders of $9.27 million on $3.71
million of total revenues compared to a net loss attributable to
common stockholders of $18.22 million on $3.68 million of total
revenues for the same period during the prior year.

The Company's balance sheet at March 31, 2017, showed $2.81 million
in total assets, $31.55 million in total liabilities, and a total
stockholders' deficit of $28.74 million.

"Our primary sources of liquidity are the proceeds from the sale of
our equity securities and debt.  We have not historically financed
operations from cash flows from operating activities.  We
anticipate that we will continue to seek funding to supplement
revenues from the sale of our products and services through the
sale of equity and debt securities until we achieve positive cash
flows from operating activities," the Company said in the quarterly
report.

The Company's cash balance as of March 31, 2017, was $493,000.  At
that time, the Company had a working capital deficit of $22.71
million, compared to a working capital deficit of $12.87 million as
of Sept. 30, 2016.  The increase in working capital deficit is
primarily due to additions to accounts payable, accrued expenses,
notes payable, and derivatives liabilities related to the issuance
of notes payable and related warrants, offset, in part, by
additions to cash, accounts receivable, and inventory.  

Operating activities for the six months ended March 31, 2017, used
cash of $478,000, compared to $2.244 million for the same period in
2016.  The decrease in cash used in operating activities is
primarily due to the increase in accounts payable during the six
months ended March 31, 2017, compared to the same period in 2016,
offset, in part, by the increase in accounts receivable and
inventory during the six months ended March 31, 2017, compared to
the increase in accounts receivable and decrease in inventory for
the same period in 2016.

Investing activities for the six months ended March 31, 2017, used
cash of $3,000, compared to $4,000 for the same period in 2016.
The decrease in cash used in investing activities is primarily due
to decreased purchases of property and equipment during the six
months ended March 31, 2017, compared to the same period in 2016.

Financing activities for the six months ended March 31, 2017,
provided cash of $806,000, compared to $2.224 million for the same
period in 2016.  The decrease in cash provided by financing
activities is primarily due to a net decrease in proceeds from the
issuance of notes payable and net increase in principal payments on
notes payable during the six months ended March 31, 2017, compared
to the same period in fiscal year 2016.

The Company had an accumulated deficit as of March 31, 2017, of
$117.5 million, compared to $108.2 million as of Sept. 30, 2016.
The Company's total stockholders' deficit as of March 31, 2017, was
$28.75 million compared to $20.11 million as of Sept. 30, 2016.
These changes were primarily due to the Company's net loss during
the six months ended March 31, 2017.

During April 2017, the Company received a letter from a significant
customer dated April 25, 2017 notifying the Company of the
termination its customer agreement effective July 1, 2017.  This
customer represented 56% and 47% of revenues during the three and
six months ended March 31, 2017, respectively.  If the Company is
not able to replace the revenues generated by this customer, of
which there can be no assurance, it will result in a material
reduction in revenues beginning in July 2017.

As of May 19, 2017, notes payable due to unrelated parties with
total principal amounts of $11.50 million, owing as of March 31,
2017, are past due, in default, and unpaid.  In addition, notes
payable due to related parties with total principal amounts of
$3.875 million, as of March 31, 2017, are past due, in default and
unpaid.  These defaults include obligations owed to Partners for
Growth, which are in excess of $2.875 million and which are secured
by substantially all assets of the Company.

AEMETIS INC: Falls Short of Nasdaq's $1 Bid Price Requirement
-------------------------------------------------------------
Aemetis, Inc., received a letter from the Listing Qualifications
Department of the Nasdaq Stock Market on Oct. 5, 2017, indicating
that, based upon the closing bid price of the Company's common
stock for the last 30 consecutive business days, the Company did
not meet the minimum bid price of $1.00 per share required for
continued listing on The Nasdaq Global Market pursuant to Nasdaq
Listing Rule 5450(a)(1).  The letter also indicated that the
Company will be provided with a compliance period of 180 calendar
days, or until April 3, 2018, in which to regain compliance
pursuant to Nasdaq Listing Rule 5810(c)(3)(A).  The letter further
provided that if, at any time during the 180-day period, the
closing bid price of the Company's common stock is at least $1.00
for a minimum of ten consecutive business days, Nasdaq will provide
the Company with written confirmation that it has achieved
compliance with the minimum bid price requirement.  If the Company
does not regain compliance by April 3, 2018, an additional 180 days

continued listing requirement for market value of publicly held
shares and all other initial listing standards for The Nasdaq
Capital Market (except for the bid price requirement) and (ii)
provides written notice of its intention to cure the deficiency
during the second 180-day compliance period.

The Company intends to actively monitor its closing bid price for
its common stock between now and April 3, 2018, and intends to take
any reasonable actions to resolve the Company's noncompliance with
the minimum bid price requirement as may be necessary.  No
determination regarding the Company's response has been made at
this time.  There can be no assurance that the Company will be able
to regain compliance with the minimum bid price requirement or will
otherwise be in compliance with other Nasdaq listing criteria.

ARMSTRONG ENERGY: Cancels Registration of 11.75% Senior Notes
-------------------------------------------------------------
Armstrong Energy, Inc., notified the Securities and Exchange
Commission via Form 15 regarding the termination of registration of
its 11.75% Senior Secured Notes due 2019 under Section 12(g) of the
Securities Exchange Act of 1934.  As of Oct. 5, 2017, there were 50
holders of record of the Senior Notes.

                        About Armstrong

Armstrong Energy, Inc. -- http://www.armstrongenergyinc.com/-- is
a diversified producer of low chlorine, high sulfur thermal coal
from the Illinois Basin, with both surface and underground mines.
The Company markets its coal primarily to proximate and investment
grade electric utility companies as fuel for their steam-powered
generators.

Armstrong reported a net loss of $58.83 million in 2016, a net loss
of $162.14 million in 2015 and a net loss of $28.83 million in
2014.  As of June 30, 2017, Armstrong Energy had $308.95 million in
total assets, $435.3 million in total liabilities and a total
stockholders' deficit of $126.3 million.

Ernst & Young LLP, in St. Louis, Missouri, issued a "going concern"
qualification on the consolidated financial statements for the year
ended Dec. 31, 2016, citing that the Company incurred a substantial
loss from operations and has a net capital deficit as of and for
the year ended Dec. 31, 2016.  The Company's operating plan
indicates that it will continue to incur losses from operations,
and generate negative cash flows from operating activities during
the year ended Dec. 31, 2017.  The auditors said these projections
and certain liquidity risks raise substantial doubt about the
Company's ability to meet its obligations as they become due within
one year after March 31, 2017, and continue as a going concern.

                           *    *    *

In July 2017, S&P Global Ratings lowered its corporate credit and
issue-level ratings on Armstrong Energy to 'D' from 'CC' and
removed the ratings from CreditWatch, where it placed them with
negative implications on June 16, 2017.  S&P said, "The downgrade
reflects Armstrong's failure to make an $11.75 million interest
payment on the 11.75% senior secured notes within the 30-day grace
period that expired on July 17, 2017.  The interest payment on the
notes was originally due on June 15, 2017, after which the company
exercised its 30-day grace period."

Also in July 2017, Moody's Investors Service downgraded the ratings
of Armstrong Energy, Inc., including its corporate family rating
(CFR) to 'Ca' from 'Caa1', probability of default rating (PDR) to
'D-PD' from Caa1-PD, and the rating on the senior secured notes to
'Ca' from 'Caa2'.  The outlook is negative.  The action follows the
company's July 17, 2017 announcement that the company entered into
a Forbearance Agreement with the holders of approximately $158
million in aggregate principal amount (representing approximately
79% of the outstanding principal amount) of the Company's Senior
Secured Notes due 2019.


ATLANTIC POWER: S&P Affirms 'B+' CCR on Announced Term Loan
-----------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings affirmed its 'B+' long-term corporate credit
rating on diversified power developer Atlantic Power Corp. (APC)
and affiliate Atlantic Power Limited Partnership (APLP). The
outlook is stable.

At the same time, S&P Global Ratings assigned it 'BB-' rating and
'2' recovery rating to APLP's US$563 million term loan due April
2023. S&P Global Ratings also affirmed its 'BB-' issue-level rating
on the company's US$700 million secured term loan facility, US$200
million secured revolving credit facility, and C$210 million
medium-term notes. S&P's '2' recovery rating on the debt is
unchanged, and indicates its expectation of substantial (70%-90%;
rounded estimate 75%) recovery in a default scenario.

The affirmation comes despite the recently announced power purchase
agreement (PPA) terminations at Naval Station and North Island. The
75 basis point (bps) repricing will result in interest expense
savings of about $4 million per year. This is the second repricing
in 2017; the earlier repricing in April also resulted in a 75 bps
reduction and interest savings of about US$4 million per year. The
two repricings will result in about $8 million of interest savings
per year that, over the term loan's remaining life, will result in
interest saving of about US$48 million that the company can use to
deleverage.

S&P said, "The stable outlook reflects our expectation that the
company will use excess cash flow to pay down debt. We expect the
consolidated debt-to-EBITDA levels to stay below 5.5x by 2019. In
our base-case scenario, we are forecasting debt-to-EBITDA of
5.0x-6.5x, which supports the current ratings.

"We could consider lowering the ratings if financials deteriorate
because of operating cost increases in the near term, or an
inability to recontract expiring PPAs over the next year, both of
which could strain financial measures. We would lower the ratings
if consolidated debt-to-EBITDA deteriorates above 6.5x with no
expectation of an immediate recovery.

"We could consider raising the ratings if cash flow sweeps result
in adjusted FFO-to-debt improving and staying above 12%, or if
consolidated debt-to-EBITDA declines below 5.25x. We forecast
temporarily lower financial measures in 2018 as contracts expire
and we view APC's ability to improve its financials sustainably as
the driver of an upgrade."


BAERG REAL PROPERTY: Not Harmed by Garland Breach of Escrow Deal
----------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Barbara J. Houser of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Northern District of Texas finds that Garland Solution, LLC, is
entitled to summary judgment on Baerg Real Property Trust's claims
that it breached Escrow I and II after finding that there is no
evidence in the record before the Court of damage incurred by Baerg
on account of Garland's alleged breach of these two escrow
agreements.

Additionally, the Court finds that Garland satisfied its duties
owed under the Escrow I and Escrow II agreements. The Court also
finds that Class A Management, LLC was charged under the various
agreements with discharging the duties of Escrow Agent, including
depositing, transferring, and disbursing funds from and between the
three escrow accounts.

This lawsuit concerns the failed, stretched-out purchase of four
apartment complexes. The various agreements that provided for the
sale were entered into in February 2014 and contemplated a closing
in July 2016. Baerg was the seller and Garland was the buyer.
However, the sale did not close as planned and the existing debt on
the apartments, which was to be satisfied at closing, came due on
July 1, 2016.

Baerg then filed for bankruptcy under chapter 11 and this adversary
proceeding was initiated by Baerg's complaint filed on December 9,
2016.

Baerg's cause of action for Garland's alleged breach of escrow
agreements concerns three separate escrow accounts, Escrow I,
Escrow II, and Escrow III; the escrow agreements were entered into
by Baerg, Garland, and the escrow agent, Class A Management, LLC.
Baerg complains that the three escrow accounts were not maintained,
and disbursements were not made, as contemplated by the agreements
and that Garland is responsible for such failures.

Garland's only duty under the Escrow I Agreement was to deliver the
initial $65,000 to the Escrow Agent and there is no dispute that
Garland delivered the funds as required. The purpose of the $65,000
minimum balance was to ensure that the regular mortgage payments to
M&T Realty Capital Corporation, the lienholder on the properties,
were made.

The Court finds no evidence that Baerg was harmed by any
mismanagement of the Escrow I account. On the contrary, the Court
finds evidence proving that the mortgage payments were made to M&T
Realty and that the construction loan was to be forgiven at closing
(regardless of the balance). Although the record reflects that the
contractual provisions governing Escrow I were not strictly
followed, the Court, however, concludes that Garland met its
obligation to fund the account with $65,000, the failure to follow
the provisions did not result in a material breach of the contract,
and, in any event, Baerg suffered no damage as a result of such
failure.

It is also undisputed that Garland did not deposit the full
$485,000 into Escrow II. But the summary judgment evidence that
supports Garland's motion reveals that Baerg, in fact, received all
payments due it under the contract. Both Kathy and Hal Baerg, as
trustees of Baerg, testified that the trust received all that it
was due under the Earnest Money Contract. And as to the $180,000,
Baerg offered no evidence of a $180,000 shortfall.

In effect, Baerg does not dispute that it received all funds owed
under the Earnest Money Contract. Rather, Baerg disputes whether
payments were made from the right source, and as such, the Court
determines that this does not rise to the level of a material
breach, nor does it result in any damage to Baerg.

The Court, however, denies Garland summary judgment on Baerg's
claim that it breached Escrow III because the summary judgment
record suggests a material factual dispute not appropriate for
summary judgment.

Finally, the Court grants Garland summary judgment on Baerg's claim
that it anticipatorily repudiated the Earnest Money Contract by its
Addendum delivered to Baerg seven days prior to closing the deal.
The Addendum does not reflect Garland's clear intent not to perform
and close under the Earnest Money Contract.

By its First Amended Complaint, Baerg alleges that Garland
anticipatorily repudiated the various agreements related to the
purchase and sale of the four apartment complexes with its
Reconciliation of Funds Addendum dated June 24, 2016. The Addendum
referred to Garland's "equity infusion" in the properties. In
addition, Baerg complains of Garland's request that four LLCs of
its (Garland's) creation be substituted for Garland as the
purchasers -- one for each property -- and that by the Addendum
Garland said it had paid $485,000 "into escrow." Baerg contends
that by these proposed changes, Garland was attempting to change
the very nature of the deal and, as such, clearly manifested its
intent not to go forward in accordance with their agreements.

The Court determines that Garland's requests to change the title
company and to close into four entities created by Garland -- the
purported buyer -- do not constitute an anticipatory breach of the
parties' contract. The Court finds no evidence that Garland
proposed these items as conditions to closing. The Court maintains
that Garland's alleged attempt to re-characterize the transaction
through its use of such terms as "refinance," "equity infusion,"
"buyout," and amount "invested" may be relevant to the breach of
contract claim generally, but it is not evidence of an anticipatory
breach.

The Court explains that a repudiation or anticipatory breach occurs
when a party's conduct "shows a fixed intention to abandon,
renounce, and refuse to perform the contract," but mere attempt to
renegotiate the terms of an initial agreement is not sufficient to
find repudiation.

PROPERTY TRUST, Plaintiff, v. GARLAND SOLUTION, LLC, Defendant,

BEST COMPANION: Wants Authorization to Use Cash Collateral
----------------------------------------------------------
Best Companion Homecare Services, Inc., asks the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the Eastern District of New York for authorization to use
the cash collateral in which Internal Revenue Service and Merchant
Cash and Capitol d/b/a Bizfi Funding may assert a security
interest.

The Debtor requires the immediate use of cash collateral to pay
wages in the ordinary course of business as well as to pay other
essential post-petition expenses or typical business expenses
incurred in the ordinary course of the Debtor's business, as well
as other administrative expenses.

The Debtor believes that the IRS has a Federal Tax Lien in all of
the Debtor's property and rights to such property in the
approximate amount of $56,810. The IRS has served notice to the
Debtor that it does not consent to the use of cash collateral.
Accordingly, the Debtor proposes to grant the IRS with replacement
liens in the Debtor's postpetition with the same validity and
priority as existed prepetition.

The Debtor entered into agreements with Bizfi Funding, whereby
Bizfi Funding would purchase the Debtor's future receivables. Based
upon the said agreements, Bizfi Funding now owns an interest in the
Debtor's receivables in the approximate amount of $338,301.

The Debtor will grant Bizfi Funding (a) a security interest in the
cash collateral collected subsequent to the Petition Date to the
same extent and with the same validity and priority as existed
pre-petition and (b) replacement liens in the Debtor's
post-petition assets, with the same validity and priority as
existed prepetition.

The Debtor also intends to use cash collateral to begin making
payments to Bizfi Funding, in the amount of $1,500 per month, which
Bizfi Funding has agreed to accept as adequate protection payments
on its interests, which make up the great majority of the Debtor's
obligations.

BIOSTAGE INC: Delisted from NASDAQ and Will Move to OTCQB
---------------------------------------------------------
Biostage, Inc. received written notification from The Nasdaq Stock
Market LLC indicating that the NASDAQ Hearings Panel has determined
to delist the Company's common stock from The NASDAQ Capital
Market, effective with the open of business on Oct. 6, 2017.

As previously disclosed, on Nov. 18, 2016, the Company received a
notice from NASDAQ indicating it was not in compliance with
NASDAQ's minimum bid price requirement, and on May 22, 2017, NASDAQ
notified the Company that based noncompliance with that rule and
with the $2.5 million minimum stockholders equity requirement, the
Company's common stock would be subject to delisting.  The Company
requested a hearing with the Panel and, on July 10, 2017, the
Company announced that the Panel granted the Company's request for
continued listing subject to a number of conditions, with the
Panel's decision ultimately requiring that the Company evidence
full compliance with all requirements for continued listing on The
Nasdaq Capital Market by no later than Nov. 13, 2017.  The Company
determined that as a result of the events described below, the
Company could not regain compliance with The NASDAQ Capital Market
listing standards by the deadline imposed by NASDAQ, and on Oct. 4,
2017, the Company withdrew its appeal from the Panel.

The Company has been advised by OTC Markets Group Inc. that its
common stock will be immediately eligible for trading on the OTCQB
marketplace effective with the open of business on Oct. 6, 2017.
The Company's common stock will continue to trade under the symbol
"BSTG".

               Breach Notice to First Pecos, LLC

As previously disclosed in the Form 8-K filed by the Company on
Aug. 17, 2017, the Company entered into a securities purchase
agreement with First Pecos, LLC on Aug. 11, 2017, pursuant to which
the Company agreed to sell to Pecos, and Pecos agreed to purchase
from the Company, shares of the Company's common stock, preferred
stock and warrants for an aggregate purchase price of $3,055,500.
As of Oct. 6, 2017, the Company has not received the Purchase Price
from Pecos.

On Oct. 5, 2017, the Company delivered a notice to Pecos and its
manager, Leon "Chip" Greenblatt III, stating that Pecos is in
breach of the Purchase Agreement as a result of its failure to
deliver the Purchase Price to the Company following satisfaction of
all closing conditions in the Purchase Agreement.

None of the shares of common stock, shares of preferred stock or
warrants that the Company would have issued under the Agreement
were issued to Pecos, and the previously-reported appointment of
Leon Greenblatt III of Pecos and Saverio La Francesca, MD, the
Company's president and chief medical officer, to the Company's
Board of Directors did not become effective, as their appointment
was conditioned upon consummation of the private placement pursuant
to the Purchase Agreement.

On Aug. 25, 2017, the last date on which Pecos should have
delivered the Purchase Price, counsel to Pecos instead delivered a
letter to the Company alleging that the Company was in breach of
its obligations pursuant to the Agreement.  Such notice requested
that the Company agree to additional conditions to closing that
were not included in the Purchase Agreement, including, among
others, the appointment of Saverio La Francesca, MD as co-chief
executive officer of the Company.

The Company believes that it is not, and was not, in breach of the
Purchase Agreement, and that Pecos' notice was unjustified and
without any legal merit or factual basis, and was delivered as a
result of Pecos being either unwilling or unable to deliver the
Purchase Price.  However, in order to ensure receipt of the
Purchase Price and preserve shareholder value, the Company notified
counsel to Pecos in writing on Sept. 1, 2017, that it intended to
comply with the new conditions demanded by Pecos. Despite that, on
Sept. 29, 2017, Pecos requested that the Company enter into a
Supplemental Agreement that introduced additional new demands.  The
Company again indicated its willingness to meet the new demands of
Pecos.  Despite the Company's timely efforts to meet each new
demand of Pecos, Pecos has not met its obligation to deliver the
Purchase Price.  The Company believes that Pecos has acted in bad
faith and, despite the satisfaction of all closing conditions, has
no intention of delivering the Purchase Price as required by the
Purchase Agreement.  The Company is reviewing all of its rights and
remedies against Pecos that may be available to the Company.

As a result of Pecos' refusal to deliver the Purchase Price, the
Company is facing significant capital issues, as its current
financial obligations exceed its cash on hand, and is exploring
financing and other strategic alternatives.  The Company is in
discussions with its advisors regarding these alternatives.  The
Company cannot provide any assurance that it will be able to obtain
sufficient financing.

            Resignation of Saverio La Francesca, MD

On Oct. 5, 2017, Saverio La Francesca, MD resigned as president and
chief medical officer of the Company, effectively immediately.

                         About Biostage

Biostage, Inc., formerly Harvard Apparatus Regenerative Technology,
Inc. -- http://www.biostage.com/-- is a biotechnology company
developing bio-engineered organ implants based on the Company's new
Cellframe technology which combines a proprietary biocompatible
scaffold with a patient's own stem cells to create Cellspan organ
implants.  Cellspan implants are being developed to treat
life-threatening conditions of the esophagus, bronchus or trachea
with the hope of dramatically improving the treatment paradigm for
patients.  Based on its preclinical data, Biostage has selected
life-threatening conditions of the esophagus as the initial
clinical application of its technology.

Biostage reported a net loss of $11.57 million on $82,000 of
revenues for the year ended Dec. 31, 2016, compared to a net loss
of $11.70 million on $118,000 of revenues for the year ended Dec.
31, 2015.  As of June 30, 2017, Biostage had $4.65 million in total
assets, $3.37 million in total liabilities and $1.28 million in
total stockholders' equity.

KPMG LLP, in Cambridge, Massachusetts, issued a "going concern"
qualification on the consolidated financial statements for the year
ended Dec. 31, 2016, citing that the Company has suffered recurring
losses from operations and will require additional financing to
fund future operations which raise substantial doubt about its
ability to continue as a going concern.


BIOSTAR PHARMACEUTICALS: Incurs $1.01-Mil. Net Loss in 1st Quarter
------------------------------------------------------------------
Biostar Pharmaceuticals, Inc. filed with the Securities and
Exchange Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q reporting a
net loss of $1.01 million on $0 of net sales for the three months
ended March 31, 2017, compared to a net loss of $620,341 on
$801,627 of net sales for the three months ended June 30, 2016.

As of March 31, 2017, Biostar had $41.49 million in total assets,
$5.31 million in total liabilities, all current, and $36.18 million
in total stockholders' equity.

As of March 31, 2017, the Company had $483,900 of cash and working
capital of $1.032 million.  For the three months ended March 31,
2017, the Company incurred a net loss of $1.014 million and net
cash provided by operating activities of $321,100.  The Company
generated cash flow from operations even though it incurred a net
loss as (1) it collected outstanding receivables from its trade
debtors; and (2) its net loss includes certain non-cash expenses
that are added back to its cash flow from operations as shown on
its condensed consolidated statements of cash flows.

"We had experienced no sales volume of all Aoxing Pharmaceutical
Products due to the temporarily suspension of production to conduct
maintenance of its production lines to renew its GMP certificates
from 2015.  In addition, for the upgrade of the production
facilities, the operation of Shaanxi Weinan was temporarily
suspended since December 2016.  There is no assurance that the
production lines at Aoxing Pharmaceutical will resume and the
renewal of GMP certificates will occur when anticipated, or even if
they are renewed, we will be able to return to the production
levels as anticipated.  Our inability to regain our production
levels as anticipated may have material adverse effects on our
business, operations and financial performance, and the Company may
become insolvent.  In addition, the Company already violated its
financial covenants included in its short-term bank loans ...
However, if such events occurred, the Company could still rely on
the collection of outstanding debtors and potential fund raising to
meet its obligations.

"During 2015, as a result of outstanding personal debts of the
Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Ronghua Wang, one of the Company's
bank accounts was frozen, title of three residential properties of
the Company had been transferred and resulted in a loss of
approximately $0.5 million (RMB 3.3 million), and certain buildings
and land use rights were seized by the court but not transferred to
the lender.  The seized buildings and land use rights have been
included in property and equipment and intangible assets
respectively in the Company's Consolidated Balance Sheets at March
31, 2017 and December 31, 2016.  In February 2016, the court
attempted to force a sale of the Company's land use rights and
buildings. As of December 31, 2016, Mr. Ronghua Wang had fully
repaid the outstanding balance of the loan, thus the creditor
petitioned the court to terminate the auction sale.  Mr. Ronghua
Wang has repaid approximately $0.5 million (RMB 3.3 million) to the
Company to make good the loss recognized in 2015. Such cash
collection is included in "other income" for year ended December
31, 2016.  The Company has disclosed the above legal proceedings
related to the Company to the best of its knowledge. Under the
current PRC legal practice, there is also no assurance that there
will be no other cases that would put the Company's properties at
risk.

"Although the Company has net current assets and net assets of
US$1,031,913 and US$36,181,932 respectively as of March 31, 2017 to
meet its obligations, the factors discussed above raise substantial
doubt as to our ability to continue as a going concern.  Based on
our current plans for the next twelve months from the issuance of
the financial statements, that is through April 2018, we anticipate
that the operation of Aoxing Pharmaceutical and Shaanxi Weinan will
be resumed in the second quarter of 2017 and the sales of their
pharmaceutical products will be the primary organic source of funds
for future operating activities in 2017.  In addition, we expect
that the acquisition and production of the new drug permit will be
completed in the second half of 2017, together with the launching
of the new product "Easy Breathing", it will bring additional
revenue and generate profits in the coming future. Currently, the
Company is able to collect outstanding accounts and other
receivables to meet its debt obligations; we may also try to
procure bank borrowing, if available, as well as capital raises
through public or private offerings of its shares and warrants.
There is no assurance that we will find such funding on acceptable
terms, if at all.  The accompanying consolidated financial
statements do not include any adjustments that might result from
these uncertainties.

"We anticipate that the new topical health product called "Easy
Breathing" will be launched for sale in 2017.  The product was
developed by the Company's research and development team over the
past 3 years.  The product is designed to have effects of relieving
stuffy nose, inhibiting nasal bacteria and viruses, and mitigating
effects on the inflammation of nasal mucosa.  It will be
manufactured, distributed and sold in China.  We expect to sell
approximately 400,000 units within the next 2 years, which is
expected to yield approximately $7.2 million (RMB 50 million) and
improve our cash flow position."

products for a variety of diseases and conditions.

For the year ended Dec. 31, 2016, the Company reported a net loss
of $5.69 million for the year ended Dec. 31, 2016, compared to a

Mazars CPA Limited, Certified Public Accountants, in Hong Kong,
issued a "going concern" qualification on the consolidated
financial statements for the year ended Dec. 31, 2016, stating that
the Company had experienced a substantial decrease in sales volume
which resulting a net loss for the year ended Dec. 31, 2016.  Also,
part of the Company's buildings and land use rights are subject to
litigation between an independent third party and the Company's
chief executive officer, and the title of these buildings and land
use rights has been seized by the PRC Courts so that the Company
cannot be sold without the Court's permission.  In addition, the
Company already violated its financial covenants included in its
short-term bank loans.  These conditions raise substantial doubt
about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.

BRINK'S COMPANY: Bond Deal Upsize No Impact Moody's Ba1 CFR
-----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service said The Brink's Company's announced
increase in the size of the proposed unsecured notes to $600
million from $500 million does not impact the Ba1 Corporate Family
rating, Ba1-PD Probability of Default rating, Ba2 senior unsecured
rating, SGL-2 Speculative Grade Liquidity rating, or the negative
ratings outlook, as the increase does not impact financial metrics
or anticipated financial policy materially.

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.


BRINK'S COMPANY: Fitch Lowers Sr. Unsecured Notes Rating to BB+
---------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has downgraded the Brink's Company's (BCO) Issuer
Default Rating (IDR) to 'BB+' from 'BBB-'. In addition, Fitch rates
the new proposed $1.5 billion senior secured credit facility at
'BBB-/RR1'. Fitch has also downgraded the company's senior
unsecured notes to 'BB+/RR4' from 'BBB-'. Fitch also assigns the
company's proposed senior unsecured notes at 'BB+/RR4'. The Rating
Outlook is Stable. The ratings apply to approximately $1 billion of
pro forma debt.

On Sept. 29, 2017, BCO announced that it intends to offer $500
million in aggregate principle of 10-year senior unsecured notes in
addition to a new $1.5 billion senior secured credit facility,
subject to market and other conditions. The notes will be general
unsecured obligations guaranteed by the company's existing and
future U.S. subsidiaries that are guarantors under the company's
newly proposed secured credit facility. The company's newly
proposed credit facility will include a $1 billion revolving credit
facility (RCF) and a $500 million term loan A facility. Loans under
the RCF and the term loan will mature in five years after the
closing of the credit facility and interest rates will float based
on the company's consolidated net leverage levels.

Proceeds from the term loan and notes will be used in part to repay
the existing RCF, the existing term loan, certain other existing
indebtedness and certain fees and expenses related to the closing
of the transactions. Remaining net proceeds are expected to be used
for working capital needs, capital expenditures, acquisitions and
other general corporate purposes.

KEY RATING DRIVERS

The rating downgrade reflects Fitch's assessment that BCO has made
a material shift in its financial strategy in which the company
will be managing to a higher leverage target and would be willing
to raise debt significantly, if a desired strategic acquisition /
merger became available.

BCO's credit profile benefits from a strong market position as the
largest cash logistics company in the world by revenue. The
company's credit profile also benefits from adequate liquidity,
improving profit margins and accelerating organic growth driven by
strategic technology investments. Fitch notes that consolidated
EBITDA has improved markedly in recent years from 9.1% in FY2015 to
12.4% as of June 30, 2017. Fitch further expects the company to
generate nearly $100 million in FCF in FY2017.

On July 13, 2017, BCO announced that it has entered an agreement to
purchase Maco Transportadora de Caudales S.A. (Maco) for
approximately $209 million in an all-cash transaction. Maco's
cash-in-transit and money processing operations are expected to be
integrated with those of Brink's existing operations in Argentina.
Maco generated roughly $90 million of revenue and $24 million of
adjusted EBITDA on an LTM basis. BCO has noted substantial cost
synergies over the next 24 months resulting in a post-integration
multiple of roughly 6x normalized EBITDA.

Within the U.S. segment the company has identified strategic
opportunities with respect to fleet management, sales, and an
increase in customer focus. Fitch expects the company's acquisition
strategy to be focused in emerging market regions while
simultaneously prioritizing operational investments within the
North American region. Fitch notes that BCO's current international
profitability compares favorably with its peers. Furthermore, Fitch
has yet to identify significant structural differences between BCO
and its competitors in the North American region.

Fitch's Base Case assumes that the company operates at or above
3.0x gross Debt/EBITDA through the forecast period. The company's
new management team has successfully restructured a significant
share of operations and has also increased its focus on accretive
acquisitions in regions where the firm has a strong market
position. BCO reported FFO adjusted leverage of roughly 3.6x and
3.8x for FY2015 and FY2016, respectively. As of June 30, 2017, FFO
adjusted leverage was approximately 3.8x. Fitch expects FFO
adjusted leverage for FY2017 to be roughly 5.0x with the potential
to rise significantly higher due to the company's shift in
financial policy.

Fitch expects the company to potentially deploy as much as $500
million toward acquisitions annually in the medium term, with the
possibility of larger deals, if the M&A pipeline surprises to the
upside. On May 8, 2017, BCO announced the authorization of a new
share repurchase program of up to $200 million of common stock
which will expire on Dec. 31, 2019. Fitch would only expect a
significant volume of repurchases in the event that the company
underwent an extended period in which acquisition targets failed to
materialize.

The company continues to put an emphasis on international targets
engaged in its core cash logistics business which typically feature
EBITDA margins in the teens, much like its recent South American
acquisitions. Fitch notes that the operating margin of BCO's South
American segment was 16.8% in FY2016 with a target profit margin of
19% by 2020. As of Dec. 31, 2016, roughly 41% of BCO's revenue was
generated in North America, compared to 25% from South America
followed by 34% from the rest of the world. As a result of BCO's
growth strategy, Fitch expects the international contributions to
grow significantly. Fitch views this strategy as positive for the
company's credit profile as cash use is generally higher globally
than it currently is in the U.S. In addition, partially driven by
inflationary measures, international profit margins are typically
higher than those seen in the U.S.

Fitch remains concerned that the company may pursue a more
aggressive financial policy which utilizes the debt proceeds for
shareholder-friendly activities in-lieu of accretive acquisitions.
The expectation of higher leverage levels is somewhat mitigated by
the company's history of consistent FCF generation, having
generated $83 million and $31 million of FCF (post dividends) in
FY2015 and FY2016 respectively.

Fitch is also concerned with BCO's currency exposure as nearly all
of the company's current and pro forma debt is USD-denominated
while less than 1/3rd of the firm's revenue is generated in USD.
Given the company's international growth strategy, Fitch expects
this proportion to decline over the long term. In addition, Fitch
is concerned with the company's end-market exposure, as high
proportions of the firm's customers are financial institutions and
retailers. Fitch is concerned that disruptive technology may
displace many of its customers within the financial services
industry, particularly in developed markets. In addition Fitch is
concerned with the risk that online retailing poses to Brink's
traditional brick-and-mortar retail customers.

The rating of 'BBB-/RR1' on BCO's proposed senior secured credit
facility and term loan reflects its secured nature and substantial
going-concern enterprise value coverage and oustanding recovery
prospects in a distressed scenario, which Fitch estimates in the
90%-100% range. The rating of 'BB+/RR4' on the company's senior
unsecured notes reflects its subordinated nature and the average
recovery prospects on the existing and proposed notes, estimated by
Fitch to be in the 30%-50% range in a distressed scenario.

DERIVATION SUMMARY

BCO has historically maintained a relatively conservative capital
structure for its rating category, with minimal debt on its balance
sheet. Total Debt/EBITDA was 1.5x as of Dec. 30, 2016 and 1.5x as
of June 30, 2017. FFO adjusted leverage was 3.8x as of Dec. 30,
2016 and 3.8x as of June 30, 2017. The company had struggled under
prior management to execute on its restructuring initiatives, and
improve operational metrics to be more in-line with its smaller
industry peers. Following management changes in 2Q16, the company
has begun to right the ship, with consolidated EBITDA margins
improving from 9.1% for FY2015 to 12.4% as of June 30, 2017. As the
world's largest cash management company, BCO has embarked on a
strategy to improve operating margins in the U.S. and Mexico where
it lags competitors and continue to defend its leadership position
throughout the rest of its markets with opportunistic
acquisitions.

KEY ASSUMPTIONS

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

-- Continued focus on the core cash logistics business with
    minimal acquisitions outside of that arena;

-- Limited negative impact from currency movements;

-- A continued ability to repatriate capital from all
    jurisdictions in which the company has significant operations.

RATING SENSITIVITIES

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

-- FFO adjusted leverage below 4.5x for a sustained period;
-- Maintain free cash flow margin above 3% for a sustained
    period;
-- Maintain a consolidated EBITDA margin above 15%;
-- Clarity with respect to the company's financial policy as it
    pertains to an investment-grade rating.

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

-- An increase in FFO adjusted leverage to above 5.5x for an
    extended period;
-- Producing persistently negative FCF;
-- Inability to repatriate cash flow in a timely and effective
    manner;
-- Large debt-funded shareholder-friendly activities;
-- Large debt-funded acquisitions.

LIQUIDITY

Brink's maintains adequate financial flexibility with liquidity
totalling $568 million at June. 30, 2017, consisting of $207
million in cash (excluding $88 million held in customer accounts
that are not available for corporate purposes) and $361 million in
availability on its $525 million unsecured revolver. BCO tends to
maintain solid liquidity in each of its geographic regions, and its
non-U.S. operations are largely funded through operating cash flow,
the BCO revolver and local credit facilities. Fitch expects
liquidity to improve further as a result of the proposed $1.5
billion credit facility which would allow the firm to utilize a
single global syndicated credit facility to support its financing
needs.

FULL LIST OF RATING ACTIONS

Fitch has downgraded the following ratings:
The Brink's Company
-- IDR to 'BB+ ' from 'BBB-';
-- Senior unsecured debt to 'BB+/RR4' from 'BBB-'.

Fitch has assigned the following ratings:
The Brink's Company
-- Senior secured credit facility and term loans at 'BBB-/RR1';
-- Senior unsecured debt at 'BB+/RR4'.

The Rating Outlook is Stable.


BUTLER, PA: S&P Lowers GO Bond Rating to 'BB+' on Weak Liquidity
----------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings has lowered its underlying rating (SPUR) on
Butler, Pa. series 2015A and 2015B general obligation (GO) bonds
two notches to 'BB+' from 'BBB' and placed it on CreditWatch with
negative implications.

"The downgrade reflects our views of the city's very weak liquidity
due to its guarantee of a line of credit for the redevelopment
authority, exposing it to nonremote contingent liabilities
accounting for over 25% of its general fund revenues," said S&P
Global Ratings credit analyst Moreen Skyers-Gibbs. It also reflects
our views that the city's current liquidity is very thin and will
not be able to withstand this liability.

Butler entered into an agreement with the redevelopment authority
to guarantee a $2 million line of credit for the authority's
construction of a hotel project. S&P said, "While we understand
that grant funding is the primary source of payment, the funds will
not be released until the hotel project is completed. The
construction of the hotel has been delayed several times since
construction began in November 2015 and the estimated project
completion has been moved to November 2017 from August 2017.
Furthermore, we believe the city lacks any credible plans to
finance this obligation should there be any funding disruptions or
if there is no extension by the bank on the line of credit. To
date, the city has not appropriated any funds from its budget for
this liability and failed to plan the payment of the loan prior to
its maturity on Sept. 7, 2017. Although the loan was extended to
Dec. 6, 2017, it was processed after the payment date and not in
advance as was done previously."

A pledge of the city's full faith, credit, and taxing power,
including unlimited ad valorem property taxes, secures the GO
bonds.

"Given the city's very weak liquidity and lack of planning to cover
this liability, if it has to act on its guarantee, we believe its
liquidity could be significantly constrained and put it at risk of
meeting this obligation," said Ms. Skyers-Gibbs, "while our
CreditWatch Negative placement reflects our views of the
uncertainty surrounding the timely completion and payment of the
project and line of credit."


CAESARS ENTERTAINMENT: Completes Merger with CAC, Exits Bankruptcy
------------------------------------------------------------------
Caesars Entertainment Corporation on Oct. 6, 2017 announced the
completion of its previously announced merger with Caesars
Acquisition Company ("CAC") and the conclusion of the restructuring
of Caesars Entertainment Operating Company, Inc. ("CEOC") and its
debtor subsidiaries.  As a result of these transactions, the newly
restructured Caesars Entertainment is positioned to further invest
in its growth strategy and realize the benefits of a simpler and
less leveraged capital structure.  Conclusion of CEOC's bankruptcy
requires completion of a number of procedural steps which will
occur during the course of the day.

"The conclusion of CEOC's restructuring leaves Caesars
Entertainment with an expected enterprise value of approximately
$20 billion based on yesterday's closing prices.  With reduced
leverage, increased free cash flow and the new REIT structure, we
are positioned with a solid foundation to pursue a diversified
growth strategy," said Mark Frissora, President and Chief Executive
Officer of Caesars Entertainment.  "Throughout the restructuring
process, Caesars has invested significantly to upgrade and renovate
its facilities.  Total capex from 2015-2017 is expected to exceed
$1.5 billion, which will benefit the company going forward.  We are
also executing hundreds of initiatives to generate incremental
revenue, as well as to enhance operational efficiency, guest
experiences and employee engagement through technology-driven
innovation and process improvement."

Since the beginning of 2015, Caesars Entertainment has
significantly improved its operations with over $700 million of
Adjusted EBITDA improvement and more than 770 basis points of
Adjusted EBITDA margin expansion achieved.  As a result of the
restructuring, debt has been reduced by more than $16 billion,
excluding the capitalization of the $640 million per year lease
obligation.

Caesars Entertainment has further enhanced its strong free cash
flow profile through opportunistic refinancings that have resulted
in combined interest savings of approximately $270 million.  These
savings include the anticipated benefits of refinancing all Caesars
Entertainment Resort Properties, LLC ("CERP") and Caesars Growth
Properties Holdings, LLC ("CGPH") debt.  These refinancings are
expected to close later this year.

Caesars Entertainment is well placed to support continued
investment in growth and value creation opportunities, as well as
initiatives targeting further enhancements in customer satisfaction
and employee engagement, including:

Leveraging Significant Presence in Growing Las Vegas – Caesars
Entertainment will continue to update its room product in Las Vegas
in line with its positive long-term outlook for this market. In
addition, the Company is advancing the development of a convention
center and other opportunities to monetize large, underutilized
commercial scale properties adjacent to the Las Vegas strip in its
real estate portfolio.

Pursuing Network Expansion Opportunities – Caesars Entertainment
anticipates unlocking new opportunities for organic and inorganic
growth across global markets supported by a strong free cash flow
profile following CEOC's emergence from bankruptcy.

Building on Proven Management Execution – Caesars Entertainment
is primed to further improve its financial and operating
performance with hundreds of discrete projects under the Company's
Office of Continuous Improvement and through the deployment of new
best-in-class, secure, cloud-based enterprise-wide technology
solutions.

Enhancing the Strongest Loyalty Program in the Gaming Industry –
With more than 50 million Total Rewards members, Caesars
Entertainment is driving revenue growth through technology
enhancements in its marketing and engagement channels, such as the
application of machine learning to customer behavioral data.

Taking Advantage of New Capital Structure – With approximately $2
billion in cash, and growing cash flow, Caesars Entertainment is
well positioned to invest in future growth.
A Simpler Operating Structure

Under the terms of the previously announced merger, CAC
stockholders each received 1.625 shares of Caesars Entertainment
common stock per share of CAC Class A common stock.  Additionally,
CEOC has separated virtually all of its U.S.-based real property
assets from its gaming operations with Caesars Entertainment
continuing to own and manage the gaming operations.  These real
property assets are now held in a newly created real estate
investment trust called VICI Properties, Inc. ("VICI") owned by
certain of CEOC's former creditors.

Caesars Entertainment will pay rent to VICI as it continues to
operate the properties. Material decisions related to these
properties -- such as renovations or other significant projects --
will be made by Caesars Entertainment in collaboration with VICI's
board and management.  Similarly, Caesars Entertainment and VICI
may at times partner on these and other development and growth
investments.

CAESARS ENTERTAINMENT: VICI Properties Completes CEOC Spin-Off
--------------------------------------------------------------
VICI Properties Inc., an experiential-asset focused real estate
investment trust (REIT), on Oct. 6, 2017 announced the completion
of its spin-off from Caesars Entertainment Operating Company, Inc.
("CEOC"), a subsidiary of Caesars Entertainment Corporation
("Caesars"), becoming one of the largest owners of gaming,
hospitality and entertainment destinations.

VICI Properties' national, geographically diverse portfolio
consists of 19 market-leading gaming facilities, including the
world-renowned Caesars Palace Las Vegas, and a subsidiary that owns
four championship golf courses.  VICI's properties are leased to
Caesars and operate under leading brands such as Caesars,
Horseshoe, Harrah's and Bally's, and feature approximately 32.5
million square feet of space, 12,000 hotel rooms and more than 150
restaurants, bars and nightclubs.  These properties are
exceptionally well-maintained, benefiting from approximately $433
million in capital investments over the past three years.  VICI
Properties enjoys a consistent, highly predictable revenue stream
with embedded growth potential due to its long-term triple-net
lease agreements with CEOC, backed by a corporate guarantee by
Caesars that would yield pro forma rent coverage of 3.5x based upon
Caesars' LTM Adjusted EBITDA.

VICI Properties' strategy is to create the nation's highest quality
and most productive experiential real estate portfolio.  This
highly focused approach involves:

   -- Partnering with leading brands and operating companies that
prioritize customer loyalty and value through great service,
superior products, constant innovation and sector-leading customer
relationship management (CRM) systems and networks;

   -- Capitalizing on strategic acquisitions, new development and
asset redevelopment opportunities with Caesars, including 53 acres
of undeveloped land adjacent to the Las Vegas Strip; and

   -- Optimizing its capital structure to support opportunistic
growth beyond its current portfolio and partnerships.

VICI Properties is led by real estate industry veteran Edward
Pitoniak, Chief Executive Officer and a member of the Company's
board of directors.  John Payne serves as VICI Properties'
President and Chief Operating Officer, and Mary Beth Higgins serves
as VICI Properties' Chief Financial Officer.  Both Mr. Payne and
Mrs. Higgins are seasoned gaming and hospitality executives, with a
deep understanding of Caesars operating performance, the current
asset portfolio and the Company's position to capitalize on growth
opportunities across the spectrum of the experiential asset
segment.

"VICI Properties debuts as the premier owner of best-in-class
gaming, hospitality and entertainment destinations and we aim to
quickly become America's most dynamic leisure and hospitality
focused REIT," said Mr. Pitoniak.  "We have in Caesars
Entertainment Corporation the best national gaming brand and
operator in America, with an unrivaled loyalty program in Total
Rewards.  We share an energy and ambition to grow our businesses
accretively, yielding a compelling value proposition for investors
seeking a balance of current income as well as long-term growth."

The VICI Properties Board of Directors is chaired by Jim
Abrahamson, current Chairman of Interstate Hotels and Resorts and a
veteran senior executive of many of the world's leading hotel brand
management companies, including Hilton, Hyatt and IHG.  The Board
also includes highly respected and deeply experienced members
Eugene Davis, Chairman and CEO of PIRINATE Consulting Group, LLC
and former director at Planet Hollywood, Delta Airlines, Winstar
Cruise Line and Aliante; Eric Hausler, former CEO of Isle of Capri
Casinos, Inc.; Craig Macnab, former Chairman and CEO of National
Retail Properties, Inc. (NYSE: NNN); and Michael Rumbolz, current
President and CEO of Everi Holdings Inc. (NYSE: EVRI), a developer
of gaming products and services.

Mr. Abrahamson said, "On behalf of the board we're excited to work
with VICI Properties' executive team and our brand and operating
partners at Caesars and eventually others to leverage our portfolio
and capital structure to build the premier experiential REIT.  We
intend to capitalize on our highly specialized knowledge, targeted
investment philosophy and longstanding industry relationships to
deliver attractive risk-adjusted returns."

On a pro forma basis, VICI Properties would have had revenue of
$762.6 million, AFFO of $389.0 million, Adjusted EBITDA of $639.7
million and net income of $433.9 million for the year ended
December 31, 2016.2 (For a reconciliation of pro forma Adjusted
EBITDA and pro forma AFFO to pro forma net income, see the
reconciliation that follows this release.) VICI Properties'
spin-off from CEOC follows CEOC's successful financial
restructuring and emergence from Chapter 11 bankruptcy, having
satisfied all of the conditions to the effectiveness of its plan of
reorganization.

CALEXICO, CA: S&P Lowers 2014 Lease Revenue Bond Rating to 'BB+'
----------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings lowered its underlying rating (SPUR) to 'BB+'
from 'A' on Calexico, Calif.'s lease revenue bonds, series 2014.
The outlook is stable.

"The downgrade represents our opinion of the significant
deterioration in the city's financial performance and position over
the past three fiscal years, which we believe resulted from
historically weak financial management," said S&P Global Ratings
credit analyst Sarah Sullivant.

A period of turnover in key management and financial officials,
coupled with inadequate staffing in the city's finance department,
led to several years of inaccurate budgeting, delayed financial
reports, and accounting deficiencies that contributed to extremely
poor financial performance.

"Although the city has taken steps to address some of the
deficiencies in its finance department, including implementing
stronger budget monitoring, we still consider its management
policies and practices to be vulnerable, which indicates that the
government lacks policies in many of the areas deemed most critical
to supporting credit quality," continued Ms. Sullivant.

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

-- Very weak economy, with a high county unemployment rate;

-- Weak management, with vulnerable financial policies and
practices under our Financial Management Assessment methodology;
     
-- Very weak budgetary performance;

-- Very weak budgetary flexibility, as well as limited capacity to
reduce expenditures;

-- Very strong liquidity, and access to external liquidity we
consider strong;

-- Very weak debt and contingent liability position; and

-- Strong institutional framework score.

S&P said, "The stable outlook reflects our view that the city's
financial position will recover slowly over the next two years, and
that its ability to correct its structural imbalance and strengthen
its management policies and practices remains uncertain.

"We could raise the rating if the city were to bring expenditures
in line with revenues and strengthen its financial policies and
practices to levels we consider at least standard, indicating that
it has resolved prior conditions that resulted in our assessment of
weak management.

"We could lower the rating should the city fail to correct its
structural imbalance, or should concerns over historically
inadequate financial management and oversight persist, suggesting
that the city's financial management is not improving as
anticipated."


CAMBER ENERGY: No Longer Holds Any Rights CATI's Previous Assets
----------------------------------------------------------------
As previously reported in Camber Energy, Inc.'s current report on
Form 8-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on Sept.
12, 2017, the cure period on the note of the Company's wholly-owned
subsidiary CATI Operating LLC expired on Sept. 11, 2017, and as of
that date, all principal, interest and unpaid costs thereunder were
immediately due and payable (which totaled $6.9 million as of March
31, 2017 and approximately $7.1 million as of the date of
acceleration).  As stated previously, the loan was non-recourse to
the public Company itself, but was recourse to CATI.

In September 2017, the lender foreclosed on the assets of CATI
which secured the note and on Oct. 3, 2017, the trustee of those
assets, for the benefit of the lender, sold all of the assets in
public auction foreclosure sales which took place in Gonzales
County and Karnes County, Texas.  The funds raised in the
foreclosure sales satisfied in full the amount owed under the note
and as such, the Company's obligations through CATI to the lender
under the note and otherwise were extinguished, provided however,
that effective as of Oct. 3, 2017, the Company no longer holds any
rights to the assets previously held by CATI.

CAMBER ENERGY: Signs $16M Investment Transaction With Investor
--------------------------------------------------------------
Camber Energy, Inc., entered into a stock purchase agreement with
an institutional institutional investor pursuant to which the
Company may receive aggregate consideration of $16 million, subject
to certain conditions.

Under the terms of the October 2017 Purchase Agreement, (1) the
Investor purchased 212 shares of Series C Preferred Stock on the
closing date of the agreement, Oct. 5, 2017, for $2 million, and
agreed, subject to certain closing conditions set forth in the
agreement, to purchase (2) 106 shares of Series C Preferred Stock
for $1,000,000, 10 days after the Initial Closing; (3) 105 shares
of Series C Preferred Stock for $1,000,000, 10 days after the
second closing; (4) 105 shares of Series C Preferred Stock for
$1,000,000, 10 days after the third closing; (5) 105 shares of
Series C Preferred Stock for $1,000,000, 10 days after the fourth
closing; (6) 525 shares of Series C Preferred Stock for $5,000,000,
30 days after the fifth closing; and (7) 525 shares of Series C
Preferred Stock for $5,000,000, 30 days after the sixth closing.

The Company plans to use the proceeds from the sale of the Series C
Preferred Stock for working capital, workovers on existing wells,
drilling and completion of additional wells, repayment of vendor
balances and payments to its senior lender, in anticipation of
regaining compliance.

"This financing represents a significant milestone for our
business," said Richard Azar, the interim chief executive officer
of Camber.  "We believe the capital will provide the Company with
sufficient runway to execute its immediate business objectives,
which in turn will drive shareholder value.  We have a detailed
strategic plan that we believe will facilitate the growth and
expansion of our business, and securing $16 million in financing is
the first step in the execution of that plan."

CHINA FISHERY: PARD Unsecureds to Recoup 25% in Proposed Plan
-------------------------------------------------------------
China Fishery Group Limited (Cayman), Pacific Andes Resources
Development Limited, and affiliates filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the Southern District of New York a disclosure statement
for their joint chapter 11 plan of reorganization, dated Sept. 29,
2017.

The CFGL/PARD Plan Debtors believe the Plan is not only
complementary to the Peru Sale Transaction currently pursued by the
Chapter 11 Trustee but also serves as the effective backstop (or
stalking horse bid) for that sale process by establishing a
baseline transaction -- in which all creditors of the CFGL Group
are paid in full -- that will remain subject to higher and better
bids offering Cash consideration. The Debtors maintain that the
Plan structure is the optimal means by which to maximize the value
of the Company Group's assets for the benefit of all stakeholders
in the CFGL/PARD Plan Debtors because it protects against a
scenario in which the Chapter 11 Trustee’s process fails to
achieve a sufficient price, while still allowing for a market test
of the Peruvian operating assets unless the creditors and the
Chapter 11 Trustee decide otherwise.

Specifically, the Plan contemplates a comprehensive financial and
operational restructuring of the CFGL/PARD Plan Debtors through (i)
a restructuring of the PARD Group and the CFGL Group around the
existing assets of the CFGL Group and the PARD Group funded by (x)
a $255 million investment by the Plan Sponsor5 in exchange for
50.5% of Reorganized CFGL and (y) a $625 million Exit Credit
Facility or (ii) a sale of the CFGL Group's Peruvian entities to a
third party for a price greater than $1.15 billion in Cash. In
either scenario, the Plan is premised upon a restructuring of all
funded debt facilities at the CFGL Group and PARD Group levels and
provides holders of Claims and Interests with recoveries in
accordance with such holders' respective rights against all of the
available assets in the Company Group, including Debtors and
non-Debtors. Under both scenarios, the Plan provides that holders
of Allowed Claims against CFGL Plan Debtors shall receive payment
in full in Cash--other than Allowed CFGL General Unsecured Claims,
which shall be reinstated. The Plan treatment for other
stakeholders, however, depends on whether the Peru Sale Transaction
provides Cash proceeds in an amount greater than the Sale Reserve
Price.

On the Effective Date, each holder of an Allowed PARD General
Unsecured Claim in Class 15 will receive its Pro Rata share of (i)
the PARD Equity Pool and (ii) the Litigation Trust Interests;
provided, however, that, if the Peru Sale Transaction provides Cash
proceeds in an amount greater than the Sale Reserve Price, then
Allowed PARD General Unsecured Claims shall be satisfied with their
Pro Rata share of (up to the full amount of such Claims) (i) the
PARD Cash Pool and (ii) if such Claims are not paid in full in
Cash, the Litigation Trust Interests. Approximate recovery for this
class is 25%.

Except as otherwise provided in the Plan, the CFGL/PARD Plan
Debtors will continue to exist after the Effective Date as
Reorganized CFGL/PARD Plan Debtors in accordance with the
applicable laws of the respective jurisdictions in which they are
incorporated or organized and pursuant to the Amended
Organizational Documents. On or after the Effective Date, each
Reorganized CFGL/PARD Plan Debtor may, in its sole discretion, take
such action pursuant to or as permitted by applicable law and such
Reorganized CFGL/PARD Plan Debtor's organizational documents, as
such Reorganized CFGL/PARD Plan Debtor may determine is reasonable
and appropriate, including causing: (i) a Reorganized CFGL/PARD
Plan Debtor to be merged into another Reorganized CFGL/PARD Plan
Debtor or an Affiliate of a Reorganized CFGL/PARD Plan Debtor; (ii)
a Reorganized CFGL/PARD Plan Debtor to be dissolved; (iii) the
legal name of a Reorganized CFGL/PARD Plan Debtor to be changed; or
(iv) the closure of a Reorganized CFGL/PARD Plan Debtor’s Chapter
11 Case on the Effective Date or any time thereafter.

CONAGRA BRANDS: Fitch Hikes Subordinated Notes Rating From BB+
--------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has upgraded Conagra Brands, Inc.'s long-term Issuer
Default Rating (IDR) to 'BBB'. The Rating Outlook is Stable.

Conagra's rating recognizes its evolution to a business model that
aligns with other large U.S. packaged food companies. Following a
series of divestitures, Conagra has emerged as a pure play
portfolio of branded products. Operating margins have increased
from low double digits to mid double digits. The company is
investing in product innovation and marketing. Results of this
investment are reflected in the improved performance of brands such
as Healthy Choice. Fitch believes Conagra could stabilize sales
beginning in late fiscal 2018 after several years of declines and
expects the company to maintain leverage under 3x.

KEY RATING DRIVERS

Transition to Pure Play, Branded Packaged Food Firm: Conagra has
transitioned to a pure play, branded, packaged food company over
the course of 2016 and 2017 by divesting and spinning off its
private brand and commercial businesses. In July 2015, the company
announced plans to sell its private label Ralcorp business (fiscal
2015 sales of approximately $4 billion and EBITDA of $370 million),
which was acquired in January 2013, but had under-performed
expectations. In February 2016, the company completed the sale to
Tree House Foods, Inc., for $2.6 billion in cash.

The company also generated approximately $489 million in net
proceeds from the July 2016 sale of two of its commercial
businesses, Spicetec Flavors & Seasonings and JM Swank. In November
2016, the company completed the separation of Conagra Foods, Inc.
into two publicly traded companies, Conagra Brands, Inc. and Lamb
Weston Holdings, Inc. (Lamb Weston), a frozen potato business which
was Conagra's remaining commercial business, through a tax free
spin-off. Lamb Weston generated approximately $3 billion in
revenues and $593 million in EBITDA in fiscal 2016. Following the
spinoff, Conagra received a cash distribution of $823.5 million and
retired $1.4 billion in debt Conagra used a majority of the
proceeds from these transactions to pay down debt and ended fiscal
2017 (May 2017) with leverage of 1.9x compared to 3.6x in fiscal
2015. More recently, in May 2017, Conagra announced the proposed
sale of its Wesson Oil brand for $285 million.

Well Defined Acquisition Strategy: Concurrently the company defined
an acquisition strategy that focuses on 'modernizing' transactions
and 'synergistic' acquisitions. Modernizing transactions are
smaller and consistent with emerging trends in food. Modernizing
transactions are platforms for future growth but may not be
immediately impactful. Conagra has closed several of these
acquisitions over the past two years: Blake's All Natural Food,
Frontera Foods, and Duke's meat snacks / BIGS seeds. None of these
acquisitions were more than $220 million. In September 2017,
Conagra announced its acquisition of Angie's Artisan Treats, LLC, a
company selling popcorn and other snack items. These transactions
tend to focus on premium food brands that accommodate changing
consumer preferences and reorient the brand mix towards artisanal,
specialty, natural and organic options. Synergistic acquisitions
are larger, enhance Conagra's network and can bring new
capabilities to the company. Conagra's recent acquisitions all fall
into the Modernizing bucket.

Margin Enhancement Initiatives Underway: Conagra's EBIT margins
have grown steadily over the past two years as the company has
shifted from being volume-driven to being value-oriented. Fitch
adjusted EBIT margins, which were 13.8% in fiscal 2016, improved to
16.2% in fiscal 2017. In addition to resetting its volume base at
higher price points, Conagra is implementing an Integrated Margin
Management strategy, which focuses on mitigating inflation risk. On
the operating cost front, the company completed a $200 million SG&A
savings program and is on track to complete its $100 million trade
efficiency program. These initiatives focus on cost-saving
opportunities in procurement, manufacturing, logistics, and
customer service, as well as general and administrative overhead
levels. Furthermore, Conagra is working to increase margins by
upgrading its portfolio. For example, the company announced the
proposed divesture of its Wesson oils brand, a low margin business
with significant private label activity.

Customer Concentration Risk: In recent years, competition in the
packaged food industry has intensified, and consolidation in the
grocery and foodservice industries has led to increased negotiating
power for Conagra's customers, pressuring profit margins. In fiscal
2017, Wal-Mart (including Sam's) accounted for 24% of Conagra's
total net sales (in-line with Walmart's 24% food market share in
North America), but no other customer accounted for more than 10%
of its net sales. The grocery industry is consolidating and
evolving. The pressure on food companies, like Conagra, is
reflective of this consolidation and the threat of the European
hard discount grocers, which focus more on private brands, entering
and further investing in the U.S. market. In June 2017, Aldi
announced that it would be investing a total of $5 billion over the
next five years to remodel and expand its U.S. store base. Lidl
opened its first U.S. store in June 2017. Walmart has responded by
testing lower prices and further pressuring food suppliers,
including Conagra, for better terms and lower prices. Kroger, the
#2 player in the food retail industry, in turn, has stepped up its
efforts to remain price competitive.

The other game changer is Amazon's acquisition of Whole Foods, Inc.
Currently, online grocery sales in the U.S. are in the
low-single-digits as a percent of sales. However, this penetration
may increase given that the Whole Foods acquisition gives Amazon a
hard-to-replicate refrigerated supply chain that can be used as a
base for home deliveries. In addition, Fitch expects the
Amazon/Whole Foods combination to result in further downward
pressure on food prices given Amazon's history of driving down
prices in other industries.

Leverage Expected to be Sustained below 3x: As noted, Conagra ended
fiscal 2017 with leverage of 1.9x compared with leverage of 3.6x in
fiscal 2015 as it used its proceeds from Lamb-Weston and the
divestitures to reduce debt from $7.9 billion to $3 billion (Fitch
adjusted) in fiscal 2017. Fitch assumes share buyback of $1.1
billion in fiscal 2018, based upon company guidance, which will
bring leverage to mid-2x. Total leverage is expected to remain
below 3x over the next 36 months, barring a significant
acquisition. To the extent that Conagra does a transformative
acquisition, Fitch would expect leverage to return to below 3x
within the next 24 to 36 months.

DERIVATION SUMMARY

Over the past two years, Conagra has transitioned into a pure play,
branded, packaged food company after its divestitures of its
commercial businesses including Lamb Weston, Spicetec Flavours &
Seasonings and JM Swank businesses along with Conagra's private
label business. Concurrently the company defined an acquisition
strategy focusing on smaller 'modernizing' companies along with
larger 'synergistic' targets. Conagra also has implemented a margin
enhancement program. The IDR upgrade to 'BBB' from 'BBB-' reflects
Conagra's cost structure initiatives and a significant upgrade in
its portfolio composition, which together have resulted in improved
margins and higher profitability measures. Risks to the business
could result if Conagra's investment in portfolio innovation does
not result in a stabilization of revenue as contemplated and its
margins suffer as food retailers exert more pressure on the food
manufacturers than currently expected.

General Mills (BBB+/ Negative) had annual revenue of $15.6 billion
and was levered at 2.8x total Debt/EBITDA as of May 2017. Kraft
Heinz (BBB-/Stable) had annual revenue of $26 billion,
industry-leading EBITDA margin of approximately 29%, and was
levered at 4.3x total Debt/EBITDA as of December 2016. Kellogg
(BBB/Stable) had annual revenue of $13 billion and was levered at
3.3x total Debt/EBITDA as of December 2016. Mondelez (BBB/Stable)
had annual revenue of $25.9 billion and was levered at 3.7x total
Debt/EBITDA as of December 2016.

KEY ASSUMPTIONS

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

-- Revenue is expected to decline at a low-single-digit rate in
    FY2018 before stabilizing and growing at low-single-digit
    rates in the forecast out years. Fitch assumed yearly bolt-on
    acquisitions that are growing at a faster pace than Conagra's
    organic business;

-- Gross margin is expected to trend towards 32% by FY2020;

-- EBIT margin is expected to be maintained above 15% throughout
    the forecast period;

-- EBITDA is expected to remain steady in the $1.5 billion to
    $1.7 billion range;

-- Capex is assumed to be in the range of 3% to 4% of net sales;

-- FCF (after dividends) is expected to be in the range of $350
    million to $400 million annually over the next 24-36 months.
    Fitch expects this to be directed towards the company's share
    buyback program but could also be used for bolt-on
    acquisitions;

-- Fitch assumed share buy-back of $1.1 billion in FY2018, which
    will bring leverage to mid-2x;

-- Total debt/EBITDA is expected to be sustained below the 3x
    level.

RATING SENSITIVITIES

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

-- Execution of the company's strategic plan with low-single-
    digit organic growth that is in line with, or better than
    category growth with overall market shares stable or improving

    and operating margins remain in line with the industry average

    in the mid-teens or above;
-- Leverage (Total debt/EBITDA) sustained below 3x.

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

-- The company loses momentum, leading to sustained top-line
    weakness and potential market share loss in major categories;
-- Leverage moving toward mid-3x as a result of poor performance,

    material debt-financed share buybacks or acquisitions.

LIQUIDITY

Ample Liquidity, Manageable Maturities: Conagra maintains an
undrawn $1.25 billion senior unsecured revolving credit facility
that provides backup for its commercial paper program. The company
had $323.2 million outstanding in its commercial paper program and
$251.4 million cash as of Aug. 27, 2017. The majority of this cash,
$244.5 million, was held in foreign countries. It had total debt of
approximately $3.3 billion as of Aug. 27, 2017, with no more than
$350 million maturing in any one year through fiscal 2022.

FULL LIST OF RATING ACTIONS

Fitch has upgraded the following ratings:

Conagra Brands, Inc.

-- Long-Term IDR to 'BBB' from 'BBB-';
-- Short-Term IDR to 'F2' from 'F3';
-- Commercial Paper to 'F2' from 'F3';
-- Senior unsecured credit facilities to 'BBB' from 'BBB-';
-- Senior unsecured notes to 'BBB' from 'BBB-';
-- Subordinated notes to 'BBB-' from 'BB+'.

The Rating Outlook is Stable.


CST INDUSTRIES: Wants Exclusive Plan Filing Extended to Feb. 5
--------------------------------------------------------------
CST Industries Holdings Inc., CST Industries, Inc., and CST Power &
Construction, Inc., ask the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District
of Illinois to extend the exclusive periods to file a Chapter 11
plan and solicit acceptances of the plan by 121 days, through and
including Feb. 5, 2018, and April 6, 2018, respectively.

A hearing on the Debtors' request is set for Nov. 14, 2017, at
11:30 a.m.  Objections to the request must be filed by Oct. 19 at
4:00 p.m.

The current Exclusive Filing Period was slated to expire Oct. 7,
2017, and the Exclusive Solicitation Period expires Dec. 6.

The Debtors submit that their Chapter 11 cases are sufficiently
large and complex to warrant an extension of the Exclusive Periods.
The Debtors have nearly 500 employees and own and operate five
manufacturing facilities.  The Debtors have assets and liabilities
in excess of $90 million.  Furthermore, as of the date hereof, the
Debtors are in the midst of conducting a sale of substantially all
of their assets, for which an asset purchase agreement has been
negotiated with a stalking horse bidder.

In the approximately three and a half months that the Debtors'
Chapter 11 cases have been pending, the Debtors, their management,
and their professionals have focused a significant portion of their
time and resources on a sale process for the Debtors' business.
The Debtors have solicited bidders, negotiated an asset purchase
agreement with a stalking horse bidder, and obtained approval of
bidding procedures by which they can conduct a sale pursuant to
section 363 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.  In addition to the sale
process, the Debtors and their professionals have devoted a
significant amount of time:

     (a) negotiating and documenting the Debtors' DIP Financing;

     (b) preparing the Schedules of Assets and Liabilities and
         Statement of Financial Affairs;

     (c) commencing and achieving a settlement in principle of an
         adversary proceeding against Oaktree;

     (d) retaining professionals to assist in the administration
         of the Debtors' Chapter 11 cases and the sale process;
         and

     (e) responding to various motions for relief and attending
         omnibus hearings.

The Debtors submit that the granting of the extensions of the
Exclusive Periods requested herein will maintain an environment
where the Debtors and their creditors can work together toward the
common goal of confirming either a plan of reorganization or a plan
of liquidation.  Moreover, the extension is not intended to
pressure creditors to accede to any of the Debtors' demands, nor
will it harm the Debtors' creditors or other parties in interest.
Rather, the primary purpose of the extension is to allow the
Debtors sufficient time to perform all requisite tasks so as to
obtain the maximum value for the benefit of all of the Debtors'
stakeholders.

The Debtors are currently in the process of marketing and selling
substantially all of their assets.  At this intermediate stage in
that process, the Debtors are unable to fully evaluate the amount
of funds will be available to propose and confirm a plan of
reorganization or liquidation.  The Debtors submit that this
uncertainty is an unresolved contingency that mitigates in favor of
an extension of the Exclusive Periods.

The Debtors say they are generally making payments in the ordinary
course of business to those vendors that are providing goods and
ongoing services on a postpetition basis.  Moreover, the Debtors
are cooperating closely with creditors in the event that there are
any complaints with respect to timeliness of payment.

CUMULUS MEDIA: Will Appeal Nasdaq's Delisting Determination
-----------------------------------------------------------
Cumulus Media Inc. received a notification from the Listing
Qualifications Department of The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC on Oct. 3,
2017, relating to the minimum bid price requirement contained in
Nasdaq Listing Rule 5550(a)(2).  

As previously disclosed, because the bid price of the Company's
Class A common stock on the Nasdaq Capital Market had closed below
$1.00 per share for 30 consecutive business days, the Company had
received notice that it was not in compliance with the Rule and had
180 days to regain compliance.  The Notice provided that, because
the Company did not regain compliance with the Rule during the
compliance period, the Company's securities would be delisted from
Nasdaq unless the delisting is successfully appealed.

As previously disclosed, the Company has scheduled an appeal
hearing for the delisting notice received relating to Nasdaq's
minimum stockholders' equity requirement.  At this appeal hearing,
the Nasdaq hearings panel will consider this additional matter
relating to the minimum bid price requirement in rendering a
determination regarding the Company's continued listing on Nasdaq.
The Company's Class A common stock will continue to trade on the
Nasdaq Capital Market while the appeal hearing is pending.  As
previously stated, there can be no assurance that the Company will
be successful in its appeal and that the Nasdaq hearings panel will
grant the Company's request for an extension of time to regain
compliance with either the Rule or the Equity Rule.  In each event,
if the Company is unsuccessful in its appeal, or it is not able to
regain compliance with the Rule or the Equity Rule within any
extension of time granted by the Nasdaq hearings panel, the Company
expects that trading in its Class A common stock would thereafter
be suspended and the stock would be removed from listing on Nasdaq.
If the Company's Class A common stock is removed from listing on
Nasdaq, the Company expects that such stock would be eligible to be
traded on the OTC Markets, an electronic quotation service operated
by OTC Markets Group Inc. for eligible securities traded
over-the-counter, on or about the same day or shortly thereafter.

11-13674) in 2011 after struggling to pay off debt that topped $97
million as of June 30, 2011.

Cumulus Media incurred a net loss of $510.7 million in 2016
following a net loss of $546.49 million in 2015.

As of June 30, 2017, Cumulus Media had $2.40 billion in total
assets, $2.89 billion in total liabilities and a total

                         *     *     *

In March 2017, S&P Global Ratings raised its corporate credit
rating on Cumulus Media Inc. and its subsidiary Cumulus Media
Holdings Inc. to 'CCC' from 'CC'.  The rating outlook is negative.
"We believe Cumulus may look to exchange debt at subpar levels or
repurchase debt at discounted levels in 2017, which we would view
as tantamount to default, based on our criteria," said S&P Global
Ratings' credit analyst Jeanne Shoesmith.  "We could lower our
ratings on the company if it announces a subpar debt tender offer."
Various tranches of debt at Cumulus are currently trading at
roughly a 30% to 60% discount to par.

In April 2017, Moody's Investors Service downgraded Cumulus Media
Inc.'s Corporate Family Rating to 'Caa2' from 'Caa1', the secured
credit facilities to 'Caa1' from 'B3', and senior unsecured notes
to 'Ca' from 'Caa3'.  The outlook was changed to negative from
stable.  The downgrade reflects the elevated risk of a
restructuring of its balance sheet and its unsustainable leverage
level of 11.3x (excluding Moody's standard lease adjustments) as of
Q4 2016.


DEX SERVICES: Wants Approval to Use of Cash Collateral
------------------------------------------------------
DEX Services, LLC requests the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Northern District of Texas to authorize the interim use of cash
collateral for a period of thirty days in order to pay reasonable
and necessary expenses associated with the Debtor's oilfield
services business.

The Debtor generates accounts receivable from its customers after
performing its services. As of the Petition Date, the Debtor had
$40,128 in outstanding accounts receivable.

In order to operate its oilfield business, the Debtor will incur
expenses relating to fuel, utilities, insurance, parts, supplies,
labor and other office expenditures. The Debtor has prepared a
budget which demonstrates its projected cash inflows and
expenditures for the next 30 days. It provides total projected
expenses of approximately $55,370.

The Debtor owns three tracts of real property located at 10951,
10953 and 10955 Exhibition Lane Road, in Canadian, Texas, where the
Debtor operates its oilfield services company.

The Debtor believes that the value of its real property is
approximately $655,000. The Debtor also believes that the trucks,
trailers, equipment, machinery and parts used at the various oil
and gas wells of the Debtor are valued at approximately
$1,619,800.

The Debtor believes that InterBank is the only creditor with an
interest in the cash collateral. The Internal Revenue Service may
also claim an interest in the cash collateral.

Accordingly, the Debtor proposes to grant InterBank and the IRS (to
the extent that the IRS has a lien on its accounts receivable)
replacement liens in the Debtor's post-petition accounts receivable
generated by the Debtor's oilfield services business in an amount
equal to the amount of the cash collateral actually used by the
Debtor.

DEXTERA SURGICAL: Expects $568,000 Third Quarter Revenue
--------------------------------------------------------
Dextera Surgical Inc. announced that revenue for the third quarter
of fiscal 2018 will be approximately $568,000, with a current
backorder of approximately $178,000 for MicroCutter Staplers and
reloads.

"As we have scaled up production of the MicroCutter 5/80, we have
had difficulty qualifying some of the raw material for our reloads
and as a result we experienced limited ability to ship product to
our customers," said Julian Nikolchev, president and CEO of Dextera
Surgical.  "We are working diligently to resolve these issues."

Mr. Nikolchev continued, "While we continue to have active
discussions with B. Braun regarding a strategic collaboration,
these discussions are taking longer than expected and with support
from our investment banker, the Board has decided to explore all
strategic options available to us at this time."

EMMAUS LIFE: Terminates Letter of Intent With Generex
-----------------------------------------------------
Emmaus Life Sciences, Inc., terminated the Letter of Intent dated
Jan. 16, 2017, as amended, between the Company and Generex
Biotechnology Corporation.

The LOI provided for Generex's acquisition of a controlling
interest of the outstanding capital of the Company for a total
consideration of $225,000,000, consisting of $10,000,000 in cash
and $215,000,000 worth of shares of Generex common stock, in
accordance with the terms and conditions therein.

The termination of the LOI was based on Generex's failure to file
an amendment to its restated certificate of incorporation effecting
an increase in its authorized capital by May 1, 2017, and the
parties' inability to agree on a resolution of certain key
financial accounting issues regarding the financial consolidation
of Emmaus and Generex resulting from the transactions contemplated
in the LOI, which prevented further negotiation and agreement on
key material terms of the formal purchase agreement provided for in
the LOI.

The LOI provides that if the Company terminates the LOI, the
Company is required to refund all deposits paid by Generex to the
Company within sixty days after the date of termination.  Generex
has paid the Company $4,000,000 in deposits under the LOI.

EW SCRIPPS: Moody's Lowers CFR to Ba3 Amid Katz Acquisition
-----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgrades Scripps (E.W.) Company (The)
Corporate Family Rating (CFR) and Probability of Default (PD)
ratings to Ba3 and Ba3-PD, previously Ba2 and Ba2-PD Rating under
Review for Downgrade (RUR). Moody's also downgraded the Senior
Secured Bank Credit Facilities to Baa3 (LGD2), from Baa2 (LGD1) RUR
for Downgrade, and downgraded the Senior Unsecured notes to B1
(LGD5), from Ba2 (LGD4) RUR for Downgrade. The outlook is Stable.
This concludes Moody's reviews that initiated on August 2, 2017
following the Company's announcement it planned to acquire Katz
broadcast networks in a debt-financed transaction valued at $292
million.

Scripps' closed its acquisition of Katz broadcast networks assets
on October 2, 2017, gaining full ownership and control after
combining its existing 5% minority investment. The transaction
price implies a purchase multiple of approximately 8x 2018
forecasted segment profit, net of tax benefits created by the
stepped up basis in the assets. The transaction was financed with a
$300 million term loan. In 2018, Moody's expects Katz to contribute
revenues and profits of approximately $180 million and $30 million,
respectively.

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

Downgrades:

-- Probability of Default Rating, Downgraded to Ba3-PD from Ba2-
    PD

-- Corporate Family Rating, Downgraded to Ba3 from Ba2

-- Senior Secured Bank Credit Facilities, Downgraded to Baa3
    (LGD2) from Baa2 (LGD1)

-- Senior Unsecured Regular Bond/Debenture, Downgraded to B1
    (LGD5) from Ba2 (LGD4)

Affirmations:

-- Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating, Affirmed SGL-1

Outlook Actions:

-- Outlook, Changed To Stable From Rating Under Review

RATINGS RATIONALE

The announced transaction adds considerable leverage. Moody's
projects pro forma leverage will be near 5.0x (Moody's adjusted
Debt/2 year average EBITDA) at the end of 2017 and 2018. In
addition, Moody's believes the acquired assets are relatively
weaker than Scripps' existing broadcast assets with lower margins.
The multicast business is a relatively new content platform that
has limited distribution and low advertising rates garnering a tiny
fraction (estimated at less than 1%) of the total TV ad market. In
addition, with weak ratings and a limited audience, these
businesses must pay for carriage -- relying on ad demand and
revenue to cover these and other operating costs. Also, there is
some execution risk with a dependence on successfully executing a
shift in the revenue model and extending its distribution beyond
its current partners. Despite the negative implications of the deal
Moody's recognizes a number positive elements. Katz has a strong
market share, the addressable market is growing quickly, Scripps
knows the business well as a current minority owner and distributer
of the content, most of the networks are profitable, all are
growing revenue, and the company has a number of strong
distribution partners.

E.W. Scripps Corporate Family Rating (CFR) is supported by very
high-margin retransmission fees which now represent over 35% of the
revenue mix, and growing faster than 20% annually. Political
revenues also provide significant lift to revenues and EBITDA in
even years, during the election cycle. The company's rating also
benefits from its closely held ownership (family members of E.W.
Scripps) which has historically maintained balanced financial
policies and good liquidity. This has provided cushion during down
years and in good years, the flexibility to invest in core
programming as well as new digital content and strategies.

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

RATING OUTLOOK

The Stable outlook reflects Moody's expectations that over the next
12-18 months, revenues will approach $1.2 billion, EBITDA margins
will near 20% (Moody's adjusted), generating close to $240 million
of EBITDA (Moody's adjusted). Free cash flow will be more than $100
million, available for repayment of debt, share repurchases and
investments. Moody's expects pro forma leverage will be near 5.0x
(Moody's adjusted), above Moody's 4.25x tolerance for the Ba3
rating, and FCF/debt (Moody's adjusted) will range between 9%-10%.
Interest coverage (Moody's adjusted) will be in the mid 3x range.
Moody's expects Scripps to maintain very good liquidity and assume
there will be no material changes to financial policies, capital
structure, market position, or the operating model.

What Could Change the Rating -- Up

Ratings could be upgraded if leverage (Moody's adjusted debt-to-2
year average EBITDA) is sustained below 3.50x. A positive rating
action would also be considered if the company maintains very good
liquidity, increases its scale, improves its market position,
diversifies its business model, or adopts more conservative
financial policies. In addition, a positive action is also
conditional on a low probability of near-term event risks and the
absence of negative developments including unfavorable changes in
regulation, capital structure, market position, the operating
model, and or key performance measures.

What Could Change the Rating -- Down

Ratings could be downgraded if leverage (Moody's adjusted debt-to-2
year average EBITDA) rises above 4.25x or FCF/Debt (Moody's 2-year
average FCF/debt) falls below mid-single digit percent. A negative
rating action would also be considered if the company's scale
diminished, cash flows fell, more aggressive financial policies
were adopted, liquidity diminished, or Moody's anticipated the
possibility of a material and adverse change market position or
share, regulation, capital structure, key performance measures, or
the operating model.

published in June 2017.


EXCO RESOURCES: Lenders Waive Potential Events of Default
---------------------------------------------------------
EXCO Resources, Inc., certain subsidiaries of EXCO, JPMorgan Chase
Bank, N.A., as administrative agent, and the banks party thereto
entered into the Limited Waiver and Eighth Amendment to Amended and
Restated Credit Agreement, amending EXCO's Amended and Restated
Credit Agreement, dated as of July 31, 2013.

The Amendment provides the Lenders will waive a potential event of
default under the Credit Agreement which may result because of
EXCO's potential failure to comply with the Credit Agreement
financial covenant which requires the ratio of aggregate revolving
credit exposure to consolidated EBITDAX for the four preceding
consecutive fiscal quarters not to exceed 1.2 to 1.0 as of the last
day of the fiscal quarter ending Sept. 30, 2017.

The Amendment also increases the maximum aggregate balance of
deposit accounts maintained at financial institutions (other than
the Administrative Agent) from $250,000 to $1,000,000.  In
addition, the Amendment increases the applicable interest rate for
borrowings under the Credit Agreement by 0.25% per annum.

FIFTH THIRD: Fitch Lowers Preferred Stock Rating to BB
------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has downgraded the long-term Issuer Default Ratings
(IDRs) of Fifth Third Bancorp and Fifth Third Bank to 'A-' from
'A'. Fitch has also affirmed the companies' short-term IDRs at
'F1'. The Rating Outlook is Stable.

The rating action reflects an earnings profile that Fitch believes
is more consistent with an 'A-' rating. Fitch still views FITB as a
high quality bank and as in line with the large regional bank peer
group average.

The rating action follows a periodic review of the large regional
banking group, which includes BB&T Corporation (BBT), Capital One
Finance Corporation (COF), Citizens Financial Group, Inc. (CFG),
Comerica Incorporated (CMA), Fifth Third Bancorp (FITB), Huntington
Bancshares Inc. (HBAN), Keycorp (KEY), M&T Bank Corporation (MTB),
MUFG Americas Holding Corporation (MUAH), PNC Financial Services
Group (PNC), Regions Financial Corporation (RF), SunTrust Banks
Inc. (STI), US Bancorp (USB), and Wells Fargo & Company (WFC).

KEY RATING DRIVERS

IDRs, VRs, AND SENIOR DEBT

FITB's downgrade was largely driven by the acceleration of the
Vantiv divestiture, which was unexpected during Fitch last rating
reviews.

FITB announced in August 2017, an agreement to sell its stake
following Vantiv's acquisition of WorldPay Group plc. Vantiv is a
payment processing and technology provider that FITB spun off in
2009. The share sale is expected to result in a $650 million
after-tax gain in 3Q17, which will be used for common share
repurchases in a like amount. While FITB has been clear in its
intent to divest of its ownership of Vantiv, the acceleration of
the sale was outside of Fitch's expectations.

As indicated in Fitch's last rating review, a redeployment of
related gains into share repurchases would likely result in
negative rating action since a complete divestiture would lessen
some earnings volatility; however, without reinvestment or other
organic opportunities, FITB's earnings profile would no longer
benefit from Vantiv-related income and gains, and the bank's
earnings profile could be adversely affected should it not be able
to offset the associated decline.

Despite rating action, Fitch continues to view FITB as a high
credit quality bank, underpinned by a conservative risk appetite,
solid capital profile, and good liquidity levels. FITB also
continues to execute on its project North Star, launched in
September 2016, which includes various initiatives to improve
revenues, reduce expenses and optimize the balance sheet.

In July 2017, FITB indicated that it expects to 1.1% ROA and ROTCE
in excess of 11% in 2018, assuming a December rate increase and two
rate increases next year. FITB's longer-term targets remain
unchanged with a 1.1% to 1.3% ROA, 12% to 14% ROTCE ratio, and an
efficiency ratio below 60%, all to be achieved by the end of 2019.
While these targets reflect an improvement from recent levels,
FITB's earnings profile is no longer expected to be a positive
outlier relative to peers. During 1H17, FITB earned an ROA of 97bps
relative to the peer median (excluding FITB) of 105bps.

Historically, FITB's earnings were a key rating driver, outpacing
peer averages supported by strong efficiency levels, and good
fee-based revenues sources. Fitch now believes FITB's expected
earnings and ratings to be in line with the large regional bank
peer average.

Fitch acknowledges that FITB's strategic priority to have a more
consistent performance through the cycle has likely also impacted
earnings. FITB's loan growth has been well below peer levels for
some time now. Most recently, FITB reported lower loan balances in
2Q17 than a year ago. The year-over-year decrease was primarily
attributable to lower C&I and auto balances. The decline in C&I
balances reflected planned C&I exits from relationships that did
not meet required return targets or credit metrics, while the
declines in auto reflect the company's desire to reduce
lower-returns originations to improve returns on capital, a
decision that was made two years ago.

Underpinning FITB's ratings, it capital profile is consistent with
its ratings, with a CET1 under Basel III of 10.6%, still below the
peer median, but viewed as adequate and roughly 70bps higher than a
a year ago. Over the long term, FITB disclosed that given its risk
profile, the bank could be operated with a CET1 of between 8.5% to
9%, though the company added this was not a target. Further, FITB's
liquidity profile remains solid. The company's modified LCR remains
good at 115% at quarter-end.

SUBORDINATED DEBT AND OTHER HYBRID SECURITIES

FITB's subordinated debt is notched one level below its VR for loss
severity. FITB's preferred stock is notched five levels below its
VR, two times for loss severity and three times for
non-performance. These ratings are in accordance with Fitch's
criteria and assessment of the instruments non-performance and loss
severity risk profiles and have thus been affirmed due to the
affirmation of the VR.

LONG- AND SHORT-TERM DEPOSIT RATINGS

The uninsured deposit ratings of Fifth Third Bank are rated one
notch higher than the bank's IDR and senior unsecured debt because
U.S. uninsured deposits benefit from depositor preference. U.S.
depositor preference gives deposit liabilities superior recovery
prospects in the event of default.

HOLDING COMPANY

FITB's VR is equalized with those of its operating companies and
banks, reflecting its role as the bank holding company, which is
mandated in the U.S. to act as a source of strength for its bank
subsidiaries. The ratings are also equalized reflecting the very
close correlation between holding company and subsidiary failure
and default probabilities.

SUPPORT RATING AND SUPPORT RATING FLOOR

FITB has a Support Rating (SR) of '5' and Support Rating Floor
(SRF) of 'NF'. In Fitch's view, the probability of support is
unlikely. IDRs and VRs do not incorporate any support.

RATING SENSITIVITIES

VR, IDRs, AND SENIOR DEBT

At their new levels, Fitch views limited downside risk to FITB's
ratings. However, the ratings could be upgraded if FITB is able to
improve its earnings profile such that it consistently outperforms
peers.

Fitch views FITB as a company in the midst of a transition, as the
company attempts to pivot its culture and risk management appetite
to targeting lower credit losses through a cycle. To the extent
that FITB is able to successfully execute on its strategy of
consistently performing better than peers, ratings could be
upgraded.

SUBORDINATED DEBT AND OTHER HYBRID SECURITIES

The ratings for FITB and its operating companies' subordinated debt
and preferred stock are sensitive to any change to the VR.

LONG- AND SHORT-TERM DEPOSIT RATINGS

The long- and short-term deposit ratings are sensitive to any
change to FITB's long- and short-term IDRs.

HOLDING COMPANY

Should FITB's holding company begin to exhibit signs of weakness,
demonstrate trouble accessing the capital markets, or have
inadequate cash flow coverage to meet near-term obligations, there
is potential that Fitch could notch the holding company VR from the
ratings of the operating companies.

SUPPORT RATING AND SUPPORT RATING FLOOR

Since FITB's Support and Support Rating Floors are '5' and 'NF',
respectively, there is limited likelihood that these ratings will
change over the foreseeable future.

The rating actions are as follows:

Fifth Third Bancorp

-- Long-term IDR downgraded to 'A-' from 'A'; Outlook Revised to
    Stable;
-- Viability Rating downgraded to 'a-' from 'a';
-- Preferred stock downgraded to 'BB' from 'BB+';
-- Senior debt downgraded to A-' from 'A';
-- Subordinated debt downgraded to 'BBB+' from 'A-';
-- Short-term IDR affirmed at 'F1';
-- Short-term debt affirmed at 'F1';
-- Support affirmed at '5';
-- Support floor affirmed at 'NF'.

Fifth Third Bank

-- Long-term IDR downgraded to 'A-' from 'A'; Outlook Revised to
    Stable;
-- Viability Rating downgraded to 'a-' from 'a';
-- Senior debt downgraded to A-' from 'A';
-- Subordinated debt downgraded to 'BBB+' from 'A-';
-- Long-term deposits downgraded to 'A' from 'A+';
-- Short-term deposits affirmed at 'F1';
-- Short-term IDR affirmed at 'F1';
-- Short-term debt affirmed at 'F1';
-- Support affirmed at '5';
-- Support floor affirmed at 'NF'.


FIRST BANCORP: Fitch Puts B- LT IDR on Rating Watch Negative
------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has placed First Bancorp's (FBP) 'B-' Long-Term
Issuer Default Rating (IDR), 'B' Short-Term IDR and 'b-' Viability
Rating (VR) on Rating Watch Negative due to the uncertainty of the
impact caused by Hurricane Maria on Puerto Rico.  

KEY RATING DRIVERS

IDRS AND VRS

The ratings have been placed on Negative Watch because Fitch
believes that the challenges posed by Hurricane Maria, including
massive destruction to vital infrastructure, homes, businesses, and
other property, could make it difficult for FBP to maintain
positive momentum in asset quality, earnings, and deposit funding
metrics that the company has reported over the past several
quarters.

Historically, FBP's ratings have incorporated the significant
challenges posed by the weak operating environment in Puerto Rico.
However, going forward, Fitch expects the destruction caused by
Hurricane Maria to further weaken the operating environment. Fitch
also expects the hurricane's impact will complicate the
Commonwealth of Puerto Rico's (PR) efforts to reverse outward
migration, generate sustainable economic growth, and address its
fiscal and debt imbalances.

SUPPORT RATING AND SUPPORT RATING FLOOR

The Support Rating of '5' and Support Ratings Floor of 'NF' reflect
Fitch's view that FBP is not considered systemically important, and
therefore the probability of support is unlikely. The IDRs and VRs
do not incorporate any support.

LONG- AND SHORT-TERM DEPOSIT RATINGS

FBP's uninsured deposit ratings at its subsidiary banks are rated
one notch higher than FBP's IDR and senior unsecured debt rating
because U.S. uninsured deposits benefit from depositor preference.
U.S. depositor preference gives deposit liabilities superior
recovery prospects in the event of default.

HOLDING COMPANY

FBP has a bank holding company (BHC) structure with the bank as the
main subsidiary. IDRs and VRs are equalized with those of the
operating companies and banks, reflecting its role as the bank
holding company, which is mandated in the U.S. to act as a source
of strength for its bank subsidiaries. Double leverage is below
120% for the FBP parent company.

RATING SENSITIVITIES
IDRS AND VRS

Fitch expects to resolve the Rating Watch Negative within the next
six months. Fitch also expects that the bank's quarterly financial
results as well as disclosures from the U.S. Federal Government and
the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico will bring greater visibility into
the potential short- and long-term effects that this unprecedented
event may have on financial performance and ultimately the
company's ratings.

SUPPORT RATING AND SUPPORT RATING FLOOR

The Support Rating and Support Rating Floor are sensitive to
Fitch's assumption around capacity to procure extraordinary support
in case of need.

LONG- AND SHORT-TERM DEPOSIT RATINGS

The ratings of long- and short-term deposits issued by FBP
subsidiaries are primarily sensitive to any change in the company's
IDRs. This means that should a long-term IDR be downgraded, deposit
ratings could be similarly affected.

HOLDING COMPANY

If FBP became undercapitalized or increased double leverage
significantly, there is the potential that Fitch could notch the
holding company IDR and VR from the ratings of the operating
companies.

Fitch has placed the following ratings on Rating Watch Negative:

First BanCorp
-- Long-Term IDR 'B-';
-- Short-Term IDR 'B';
-- Viability Rating 'b-'.

FirstBank Puerto Rico
-- Long-Term IDR 'B-';
-- Long-term deposit 'B/RR3';
-- Short-Term IDR 'B';
-- Short-term Deposits 'B';
-- Viability 'b-'.

Fitch has affirmed the following ratings:
First BanCorp
-- Support '5';
-- Support floor 'NF'.

FirstBank Puerto Rico
-- Support '5';
-- Support floor 'NF'.


FREEDOM HOLDING: May Issue 5 Million Shares Under 2018 Plan
-----------------------------------------------------------
Freedom Holding Corp. filed a Form S-8 registration statement with
the Securities and Exchange Commission to register 5,000,000 shares
of the Company's common stock, par value $0.001 per share issuable
pursuant to its 2018 Equity Incentive Plan.  A full-text copy of

                    About Freedom Holding

Freedom Holding Corp., formerly known, as BMB Munai, Inc., is
engaged in oil and natural gas exploration and production through
Emir Oil LLP, which was sold to a third party entity in 2011.  The
Company has been focused on satisfying its post-closing
undertakings in connection with the sale of Emir Oil, winding down
its operations in Kazakhstan and exploring oil and gas
opportunities.

BMB Munai reported a net loss of $578,139 for the year ended March
31, 2017, a net loss of $491,999 for the year ended March 31, 2016,
and a net loss of $138,634 for the period from Aug. 25, 2014, to
March 31, 2015.

As of June 30, 2017, BMB Munai had $164.6 million in total assets,
$106.6 million in total liabilities and $58.01 million in total
stockholders' equity.


FREESTONE RESOURCES: Incurs $1.38 Million Net Loss in Fiscal 2017
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Freestone Resources, Inc., filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission its annual report on Form 10-K disclosing a net loss
attributable to the Company of $1.38 million on $1.07 million of
total revenue for the year ended June 30, 2017, compared to a net
loss attributable to the Company of $2.37 million on $1.09 million
of total revenue for the year ended June 30, 2016.

As of June 30, 2017, Freestone had $1.73 million in total assets,
$2.93 million in total liabilities and a total deficit of $1.19
million.

The report from Freestone's independent registered public
accounting firm for the year ended June 30, 2017, includes an
explanatory paragraph stating that the Company has not generated
sufficient cash flows to fund its business operations.  These
factors raise substantial doubt that the Company will be able to
continue as a going concern.

The Company has little cash reserves and liquidity to the extent it
receives it from operations and through the sale of common stock.

Cash decreased by $25,682 from $29,791 at June 30, 2016 to $4,109
at June 30, 2017.

Net cash used by operating activities was $832,632 for the year
ended June 30, 2017, compared to net cash used in operations of
$799,397 the prior year.  The amount of cash used remained
consistent despite the reduction of expenses and net operating loss
because the two primary areas of decrease, the accrual for future
tire disposal and stock based compensation are both non-cash
expenses.

The cash provided by financing activities was funded by $298,537 of
cash contributed by the non-controller member to Freestone Dynamis
Energy Products, LLC, a joint venture between Dynamis Energy, LLC
and the Company, and a net $476,413 increase in borrowings
primarily from stockholders along with $25,000 in proceeds from the
sale of stock.

The Company is uncertain of its ability to generate sufficient
liquidity from its operations so the need for additional funding
may be necessary.  The Company said it may sell stock and/or issue
additional debt to raise capital to accelerate its growth.

GENON ENERGY: Revises Exit Plan, May Cancel Rights Offering
-----------------------------------------------------------
GenOn Energy, Inc., GenOn Americas Generation, LLC, and certain of
their directly and indirectly-owned subsidiaries; and certain
holders of senior unsecured notes issued by GenOn and GAG that are
also members of the respective ad hoc steering committees composed
of GenOn and GAG notes holders entered into the Amended and
Restated Backstop Commitment Letter on October 2, 2017.

The Amended Backtop Letter replaces the Backstop Commitment Letter,
dated as of June 12, 2017, and the first amendment thereto in their
entirety.

The Debtors also entered into an amendment to the Restructuring
Support and Lock-Up Agreement, dated as of June 12, 2017, with NRG
Energy, Inc., and certain required consenting noteholders.  The
deal was previously disclosed and entered into by the Debtors, NRG,
certain holders representing greater than 93% in aggregate
principal amount of GenOn's outstanding senior unsecured notes and
certain holders representing greater than 93% in aggregate
principal amount of GAG's outstanding senior unsecured notes
signatory thereto.

The Amended Backstop Letter and the RSA Amendment, among other
things, remove the Debtors' requirement to conduct a rights
offering in connection with the Debtors' exit financing.

The so-called Group A Backstop Parties commit to purchase an amount
of New Secured Notes on the terms set forth in the Term Sheet equal
to: (a) the percentage set forth in a certain schedule accompanying
the Amended Backstop Letter -- which information was not disclosed
in the Company's filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission
-- multiplied by (b) the ratio of (1) the Group A Backstop
Allocation over (2) the Aggregate Notes Amount (as defined in the
Term Sheet), multiplied by (c) the Unallocated Financing (as
defined in the Term Sheet).

The so-called Group B Backstop Parties commit to purchase an amount
of New Secured Notes on the terms set forth in the Term Sheet equal
to: (a) percentage set forth in a certain schedule accompanying the
Amended Backstop Letter -- which information was not disclosed in
the Company's filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission --
multiplied by (b) the ratio  of (1) the Group B Allocation Amount
over (2) the Aggregate Notes Amount, multiplied by (c) the amount
of the Unallocated Financing.

The term "Group A Backstop Allocation" means $300 million in
aggregate principal amount of New Secured Notes, and "Group B
Backstop Allocation" means the Aggregate Notes Amount minus the
Group A Backstop Allocation.

On October 2, 2017, the Debtors filed a Second Amended Joint Plan
of Reorganization pursuant to Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code and
a related Disclosure Statement with the Bankruptcy Court. Among
other changes, the Amended Plan and Disclosure Statement remove the
previously-contemplated rights offering, consistent with the
Amended Backstop Letter and the RSA Amendment.

GREEN TERRACE: Files Supplement to Motion Seeking Ch. 11 Trustee
----------------------------------------------------------------
Debtor Green Terrace Condominium Association, Inc., and Angela
Ciriello filed a Supplement to their joint motion for entry of an
order directing the Office of the United States Trustee to appoint
a Chapter 11 Trustee to administer the Debtor's estate and its
affairs together with any and all additional relief which may be
necessary under the circumstances of this case.

The Supplement provides that the Debtor's current Board of
Directors, appointed by a state court Receiver shortly before his
commencement of this Chapter 11 case, is battling to keep control
of the Debtor from reverting back to the members of the prior
dishonest and self-dealing boards controlled by Kenneth Bailynson,
and that Bailynson has been attempting to retake control of the
Debtor by recalling the current Independent Board members and
appointing a "New Bailynson Board."

Since the Original Trustee Motion, the New Bailynson Board has
acted as if it is in complete control of the Debtor. It has
improperly assumed that Bailynson’s recall of the Independent
Board was valid even though it was rejected and challenged through
statutory administrative avenues.  It certainly appears from the
DBPR's Order For Answer directed at Bailynson and his insiders and
naming them "respondents," that the New Bailynson Board has jumped
the gun. Finally, it has scoffed at the written notices they
received to the effect that the Independent Board and the Debtor do
not recognize the attempted recall and that it does not consider
any acts that the New Bailynson Board takes to be of any force or
effect.

In addition, the current and on-going actions of the proposed New
Bailynson Board members are creating substantial confusion and
hindering the Debtor's operations. Among other things, they have
independently contacted the Debtor's prior property manager,
arguably in violation of the automatic stay, who has refused to
step down or turn over records to a new property manager, despite
being ordered to do so by this Court, creating inefficiency in the
Debtor's operations.

The Troubled Company Reporter previously reported that the Movants
claim that there is sufficient ground to
appoint a chapter 11 trustee considering that Mr. Bailynson
attempted to recall the Independent Board, whether such recall
valid or not. Further, if the recall occurred, cause exists to
appoint a trustee based on the dishonesty, self-dealing,
incompetence and gross mismanagement of the Debtor's affairs by
current management.

GREENCROFT OBLIGATED: Fitch Affirms BB+ Rating on 2013A Bonds
-------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings affirms the 'BB+' rating on the following bonds
issued by the Indiana Finance Authority on behalf of Greencroft
Obligated Group (GOG):

-- $43.31 million revenue bonds, series 2013A.

The Rating Outlook is Stable.

SECURITY

The bonds are secured by a mortgage on GOG's facilities, a gross
revenue pledge, and a debt service reserve fund.

KEY RATING DRIVERS

LONG OPERATING HISTORY: A key credit strength remains GOG's long
operating history in each of its three service areas, which dates
back to 1967. GOG's unit mix is comprised of a higher proportion of
assisted living and skilled nursing units relative to other
continuing care retirement communities (CCRCs), which helps serve
as a market differentiator in a somewhat competitive marketplace.

RELATIONSHIP WITH GREENCROFT COMMUNITIES: Each member of GOG
(Greencroft Goshen, Southfield Village, and Hamilton Grove) are
affiliate entities of Greencroft Retirement Communities (GRC),
which serves as the sole corporate member and manager and provides
various benefits such as financial planning, budgeting, and
management expertise. The strong relationship dates back to the
founding of each affiliate and each obligated group (OG) member has
entered into an affiliation contract with GRC into perpetuity,
which Fitch views favorably.

SUFFICIENT LIQUIDITY POSITION: GOG improved its unrestricted cash
and investment position to $25.5 million in fiscal 2017 which
translates into 279 days cash on hand (DCOH), 36.5% cash to debt,
and 4.8x cushion ratio. These metrics remain sufficient to support
a 'BB+' rating level and are on par with Fitch's below investment
grade (BIG) medians of 283 DCOH, 34.2% cash to debt, and 4.4x
cushion ratio. However, these metrics still remain weaker than
Fitch's 'BBB' category medians of 396 DCOH, 61.5% cash to debt, and
8x cushion ratio.

SOLID CENSUS: GOG has maintained solid census levels in recent
years across all levels of care, which can be attributed to its
focused marketing efforts in independent living units (ILUs) and
tiered pricing strategy in its assisted living units (ALUs). In
fiscal 2017, GOG averaged a solid 93% occupancy in its ILUs, 91% in
its ALUs, and 89% in its skilled-nursing facility (SNF).

ELEVATED, BUT MANAGEABLE DEBT BURDEN: Although slightly elevated,
GOG's debt burden remains manageable as evidenced by maximum annual
debt service (MADS) equating to 14% of fiscal 2017 total revenues
which compares favorably to Fitch's 'BIG' median of 17.1%, yet
still remains weaker than Fitch's 'BBB' category median of 12.4%.
Additionally, low entrance fees from turnover units produced a weak
1.4x MADS coverage in fiscal 2017; however, revenue-only coverage
remained strong at 1.4x.

RATING SENSITIVITIES

OPERATIONAL PERFORMANCE: Given Greencroft Obligated Group's
elevated debt burden and modest coverage levels from low entrance
fees from turnover units, any weakened operational performance
which results in lower coverage levels or a deteriorating liquidity
position could lead to negative rating pressure. Alternatively,
improved profitability that leads to strengthened liquidity metrics
may lead to positive rating movement.


GREENHILL & CO: Moody's Keeps Ba2 CFR Following Term Loan Upsize
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has kept unchanged its ratings for
Greenhill & Co., Inc.'s corporate family rating and senior secured
term loan and revolving credit facility, after the term loan was
upsized to $350 million from $300 million. The outlook is stable.

As previously announced, Greenhill plans to utilize the proceeds
from its proposed new term loan, along with newly issued equity to
repurchase common stock and to pay-down its existing debt of around
$75 million. The upsize of $50 million will result in a debt
balance of $350 million, instead of $300 million. Greenhill does
not plan to immediately draw upon the revolver, which remains at
$20 million capacity following the upsize.

Moody's said Greenhill's creditworthiness is underpinned by a
profitable franchise with a high level of pre-tax margins supported
by a variable compensation model. Greenhill has historically
operated at a relatively low compensation ratio compared to other
peers in the M&A advisory space, allowing the firm to maintain a
certain level of flexibility during low revenue periods. Moody's
said that the transaction leaves the firm with little headroom for
additional leverage at the current rating level.

What Could Change the Rating -- Up

* Demonstrated shift towards a more conservative financial policy
and debt repayment

* Strengthened cash flow generation resulting in an improved credit
profile that sustains a reasonable debt service capacity at the
bottom of the economic cycle

What Could Change the Rating -- Down

* The absence of anticipated improvement in cash flows and if it
becomes less likely that the firm will be able to de-lever below
4.5x by year-end 2018

* An incremental increase in debt to fund share repurchases or
dividends

* A significant and prolonged deterioration in cash flow generation
due to an extended downturn in M&A advisory markets or the
departure of key personnel and absence of efforts to controlling
costs


GULFPORT ENERGY: Moody's Rates New $450MM Unsecured Notes B2
------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a B2 rating to Gulfport Energy
Corporation's (Gulfport) proposed $450 million notes due 2026.
Gulfport's other ratings and its positive rating outlook were
unchanged.

The note proceeds will be used to repay the outstanding borrowings
under Gulfport's secured revolving credit facility and for capital
spending.

"While this debt offering will increase Gulfport's gross debt by
about 12%, this is not material enough to change Moody's views on
Gulfport's positive operating and credit trends," said Sajjad Alam,
Moody's Senior Analyst.

Issuer: Gulfport Energy Corporation

Assignments:

-- Senior Unsecured Regular Bond/Debenture, Assigned B2 (LGD5)

RATINGS RATIONALE

The new notes will be issued under a new indenture and will rank
equally in right of payment with Gulfport's existing senior notes.
The proposed notes will have the same upstream guarantees from
Gulfport's current and future restricted subsidiaries, and will not
be guaranteed by Grizzly Holdings, Inc. or any future unrestricted
subsidiaries. The proposed notes are rated B2, one notch below the
B1 CFR given the substantial size of Gulfport's borrowing base
credit facility, which has a first-lien claim to the company's
assets. Gulfport's $1.0 billion borrowing base will not be reduced
because of this debt offering.

Gulfport's B1 Corporate Family Rating (CFR) is supported by the
company's substantial acreage position and drilling inventory in
the Utica Shale in eastern Ohio and the SCOOP play in Oklahoma,
strong production and reserves growth potential even in a low
commodity price environment, and manageable leverage and liquidity
position. Gulfport's substantial hedge protection through 2018,
firm-transportation arrangements to move gas out of eastern Ohio,
and good liquidity should support its planned growth through 2018.
The B1 CFR also reflects the risks of the company's large capital
requirements for developing its high-decline Utica assets that have
historically produced recurring negative free cash flow, and a
natural gas weighted and concentrated production and reserves base
in the Utica Shale. While the SCOOP assets have added
diversification and increased liquids production, the company still
needs do significant amount of drilling and invest large sums of
capital to fully develop these assets. Based on Moody's
expectations of relatively low natural gas prices in North America
in the foreseeable future, Moody's expects the company to develop
its acreage in a manner that would not materially increase
financial leverage.

Gulfport's positive outlook reflects its good organic production
and reserves growth prospects over the next several years without
any meaningful rise in financial leverage. An upgrade to Ba3 could
be considered if the company continues to exhibit strong production
and reserve growth in the Utica, demonstrates good operating and
capital efficiency with the newly acquired assets, and sustains a
retained cash flow to debt ratio in excess of 35% and a leveraged
full-cycle ratio above 1x. The B1 CFR could be downgraded if the
future increases in debt outpace the growth in production and
reserves, or if the retained cash flow to debt ratio drops below
20%.

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

Gulfport is a publicly traded exploration and production company
with principal producing assets in the Utica Shale, SCOOP play in
Oklahoma and the Louisiana Gulf Coast and headquartered in Oklahoma
City, Oklahoma.


GULFPORT ENERGY: S&P Rates New $450MM Senior Unsecured Notes 'B+'
-----------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings assigned its 'B+' issue-level rating (the same
as the corporate credit rating) and '4' recovery rating to
U.S.-based exploration and production (E&P) company Gulfport Energy
Corp.'s proposed $450 million senior unsecured notes due 2026. The
'4' recovery rating indicates S&P's expectation of average (30% to
50%; rounded estimate: 45%) recovery in the event of default. The
rating reflects S&P's expectation the company will use the proceeds
to pay down its outstanding borrowings on its credit facility and
for general corporate purposes.

S&P said, "The ratings on Gulfport Energy reflect our assessment of
the company's weak business risk profile and significant financial
risk profile. These assessments reflect our view of the company's
geographic concentration in the Utica shale and more recent entry
into the Scoop basin, as well as its aggressive capital spending
over the past few years, which we expect to continue. The ratings
also reflect a negative comparable ratings analysis (CRA) to the
anchor to reflect Gulfport's limited scale of operations, in
particular its high proved-undeveloped content and smaller
production levels, relative to 'BB-' rated peers.
These weaknesses are partially buffered by the company's
significant growth potential in the Utica shale and SCOOP basin, as
well as our expectation that funds from operations to debt will
remain above 20% despite the company's aggressive spending program
and growth targets. Our 'B+' corporate credit rating and positive
outlook on Gulfport are unchanged."

price of $3.00.

The Second Exchange Note was issued on such other terms and
conditions that are identical to the terms of the Initial Exchange
Note, except that the number of shares issuable upon conversion of
the Second Exchange Note are limited if the issuance of such
shares, in conjunction with other shares of common stock that may
be issuable by the Company, would exceed the aggregate number of
shares of common stock which the Company may issue without
breaching the rules and regulations of The Nasdaq Stock Market, LLC
including rules related to the aggregation of offerings under
NASDAQ Listing Rule 5635(d).  In the event that the Company would

IMH FINANCIAL: Expands Luxury Hotel Portfolio in Sonoma
-------------------------------------------------------
IMH Financial Corporation has acquired MacArthur Place Hotel & Spa,
an upscale 64-room hotel situated on a five-acre parcel in Sonoma,
California.  The Scottsdale-based group also manages L'Auberge de
Sedona and Orchards Inn, both in Sedona, Arizona.  IMH Financial
purchased the Hotel and related assets from 29 East MacArthur, LLC
for $36 million.

"The historical significance and provenance of MacArthur Place are
precisely the attributes we seek when acquiring a boutique
property," said Lawrence Bain, chairman and CEO of IMH.  "We look
forward to bringing the same five-star level of service and quality
to the Sonoma community as we have in Sedona."

IMH is planning a major renovation of the entire facility including
the arrival experience, reception, culinary venues, spa, pool and
all of the guest rooms and suites.  Upon completion, which is
anticipated by early summer, IMH plans to rebrand the hotel as
L'Auberge de Sonoma, adding another property to their boutique
5-star resort portfolio.

"The unique nature of the 160-year-old property and its Victorian
architecture makes this project exciting and fun for the guest and
our team alike," Bain continued.  "We will expand MacArthur's
outdoor setting to include dining and seating so that the amazing
gardens can be enjoyed to the fullest."

Originally a prestigious vineyard and working ranch, MacArthur
Place has long been a centerpiece of the Sonoma community.
Currently, there are 19 buildings on the parcel, including a spa,
meeting space, restaurant and pool.  The inn is a short distance
from historic Sonoma Plaza, home to a vibrant farmers' market,
local cafes, world-class wineries, fine dining, shops and
galleries.
    
"IMH are stewards first, who will honor the heritage of MacArthur
Place while taking Sonoma hospitality to the next level.  We are
excited about IMH's plans to build on what we created here at
MacArthur Place and continuing to improve it for future guests,"
said Suzanne Brangham, developer of the hotel.

The team of agents who represented MacArthur Place were Henry Bose
and Mark McDermott from CBRE in San Francisco.

Sonoma is a 45-minute drive from San Francisco with a steady stream
of wine-enthusiasts lured by the sense of discovery.  Sonoma County
is one of the largest wine regions in the world and houses more
than 425 wineries and approximately 60,000 acres of vineyards.

By the end of the year, IMH expects to acquire another high-end
boutique resort property to re-brand as its third L'Auberge
property, expanding the IMH collection of resort hotels renowned
for luxurious, high-touch service and bespoke guest experiences.
Under IMH's management, L'Auberge de Sedona was ranked the No. 1
hotel in the Southwest by Conde Nast Traveler's Readers' Choice
Awards in 2016.  The 88-room property offers world-class dining,
award-winning wellness programming and partnerships with Sedona
vendors that make it easy for visitors to discover the best of the
destination.

In connection with the acquisition of the Hotel, the Company
entered into a building loan agreement/disbursement schedule and
related agreements with MidFirst Bank, dated as of Oct. 2, 2017, in
the amount of $32.3 million, of which approximately $19 million was
utilized for the purchase of the Hotel, approximately $10.0 million
is being set aside to fund planned hotel improvements, and the
balance for interest reserves and operating capital.  The Loan
requires IMH to fund minimum equity of $17.4 million, the majority
of which was funded at the time of the Hotel purchase and the
balance of which will be funded during the renovation period.  The
Loan has an initial term of three years, and may be extended for
two one year periods if the loan is in good standing and upon
satisfaction of certain conditions, and upon payment of a fee of
0.35% of outstanding principal per extension.  The Loan requires
interest-only payments during the initial three-year term and bears
floating interest equal to the 30-day LIBOR rate plus 3.75%, which
may be reduced by 0.25% if certain minimum compensating balances
are maintained at the Bank and by 0.50% if certain additional
conditions are met.

The Loan is secured by a deed of trust on all Hotel real property
and improvements, and a security interest in all furniture,
fixtures and equipment, licenses and permits, and Hotel and related
revenues.  IMH has agreed to provide a construction completion
guaranty with respect to the planned Hotel improvement project
which will be released upon payment of all project costs and
receipt of a certificate of occupancy.  In addition, IMH has
provided a loan repayment guaranty of 50% of the Loan principal
along with a guaranty of interest and operating deficits, as well
as other customary carve-out matters such as bankruptcy and
environmental matters.  Under the guarantees, IMH is required to
maintain a minimum book value net worth of $50.0 million and
minimum liquidity of $5.0 million throughout the term of the Loan.
In addition, the Loan requires the Hotel to establish various
operating and reserve accounts at the Bank which are subject to a
cash management agreement.  In the event of default, the Bank has
the ability to take control of such accounts for the allocation and
distribution of proceeds in accordance with the cash management
agreement.

J&M FOOD SERVICES: Court Denies Bid to Assume Camel Lease
---------------------------------------------------------
Judge Daniel P. Collins of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Arizona denies J&M Food Services LLC's assumption of
the Lease with Camel Investment L.L.C. due to its failure to file a
written motion or make an oral motion to assume the lease before
the deadline to assume or reject executory on June 18, 2017.

The Debtor is an Arizona limited liability company initially formed
by Jay Ji-Hoon Chung and his then girlfriend, Maggie Liao.
Initially, Chung and Liao were the only members of Debtor.

On May 8, 2014, the Debtor and the Landlord -- Camel Investment
L.L.C. -- entered into a written Lease calling for the Debtor's
occupancy of the Landlord's commercial real estate located at 4320
N. Miller Rd. in Scottsdale, Arizona, where the Debtor currently
operates its restaurant business under the name "Sushi J." Jay
Ji-Hoon Chung guaranteed the Lease.

Approximately 18 months ago, the Landlord approached Mr. Chung
about relocating Sushi J from the Premises to the Landlord's
property at 4412 N. Miller Rd. in Scottsdale, Arizona. The Premises
and Replacement Premises are both at the Landlord's
Camelback-Miller Plaza and are located about 150 yards from each
other.

On July 8, 2016, the Landlord and D'Lite executed a letter of
intent calling for D'Lite to occupy the Premises starting April 1,
2017. Rather than relocate the Debtor to the Replacement Premises,
the Landlord entered into a lease for that building with P&J Food
Services, LLC -- a limited liability company owned by Pajman Mir
Malihi.

After a dispute arose between Liao and Chung, Liao commenced
litigation in the Arizona Superior Court, Maricopa County at
CV2017-052353, against Chung, the Landlord, and others, alleging
among other things, that money was being directed from the Debtor
by Chung and that Chung colluded with the Landlord to enable Chung
to usurp the Debtor's opportunity to lease the Replacement
Premises. Subsequently, James C. Sell was appointed by the State
Court as receiver of the Debtor.

Fearing a lockout of the Premises by the Landlord, Liao caused the
Debtor to file its voluntary chapter 11 bankruptcy petition. On
March 1, 2017, the Landlord filed its first motion for stay relief
claiming that the Lease was not property of the bankruptcy estate,
which the Court denied after oral argument at a hearing held on
April 27, 2017.

The date for the Debtor to assume or reject the Lease expired on
June 18, 2017. So that on June 23, 2017, the Landlord filed its
second motion for stay relief claiming that the Debtor failed to
timely file its motion to assume the Lease and, under Section
365(d)(4), the Lease is deemed rejected and the Premises must be
surrendered to the Landlord.

The Court concludes that the Debtor's lease with the Landlord was
deemed rejected on June 19, 2017. Accordingly, the Court grants the
Landlord -- Camel Investment L.L.C.'s Second Stay Lift Motion.

The Landlord contends it did not know the Debtor intended to assume
the Lease nor did the Debtor intend to assume the Lease because the
Debtor had been trying to relocate into the Replacement Premises.
This Court finds that, since the Landlord wants the Debtor to
relocate and has a tenant ready to take over the Premises, it is
not inconsistent for the Debtor to simultaneously desire to assume
the Lease and relocate into the Replacement Premises.

The Court further finds that the Debtor's filings and oral
presentations before the Court were consistent with the Debtor's
intent to assume the Lease and that the Debtor's desire was known
(or should have been understood) by the Landlord. Nevertheless, the
Court says that Debtor's intentions and the Landlord's
understandings do not constitute an oral motion to assume the Lease
prior to the June 18, 2017 deadline imposed by Section 365(d)(4).

As to the possibility that the Debtor's actions constituted an
implicit or de facto motion to assume the Lease, this Court agrees
with the Ninth Circuit's Bankruptcy Appellate Panel interpretation
of Section 365(d)(4) and related Bankruptcy Rules in the case of In
re Treat Fitness Center, Inc., 60 B.R. 878 (9th Cir. BAP 1986),
were the Ninth Circuit held: "If neither a timely written or oral
motion or a filed plan seek assumption of an unexpired lease, that
lease is deemed rejected once the 120-day period expires. The Court
does not have the freedom to rescue a debtor that has all the right
intentions if the debtor's actions do not culminate in a timely
filed plan, a written motion, or a proper oral motion timely made
in open court."

As such, even though the Court finds that the Debtor intended to
assume the Lease and the Landlord knew or should have known this
fact, the Court is not free to enter a nunc pro tunc order allowing
the assumption of a lease where the statute deems the lease
rejected when the lease is not timely assumed.

The Court also concludes that the Landlord did not intend to
relinquish its Lease rejection rights, considering that (a) the
Landlord's second motion for stay relief was filed on June 23,
2017, four days after the Lease was deemed rejected; (b) the
Landlord wanted to be paid for the Debtor's use of the Premises
before and after the Lease was rejected. The Court explains that
accepting several monthly payments does not constitute a waiver of
the Lease rejection, even if those payments were on account of
amounts owed at the Petition Date. The Court concludes that the
Landlord wants the Debtor out of the Premises.

JAMES WILSON: Plan Confirmation Hearing on Oct. 26
--------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Nicholas W. Whittenburg of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the Eastern District of Tennessee has conditionally approved James
Wilson Company's disclosure statement dated Sept. 18, 2017,
referring to the Debtor's Chapter 11 plan.

A hearing to consider the final approval of the Disclosure
Statement and confirmation of the Plan will be held on Oct. 26,
2017, at 10:30 a.m.

Objections to the Disclosure Statement and plan confirmation must
be filed by Oct. 20, 2017, which is also the last day for
submitting ballots accepting or rejecting the Plan.

On Sept. 18, 2017, the Debtor filed its disclosure statement,
stating that General unsecured creditors are classified in Class 4,
and are to receive a distribution of 10% of their allowed claims,
to be distributed via monthly payments over sixty 60 months.  The
holders will be paid $818.50 per month starting on the effective
date.

Payments and distributions under the Plan will be funded by cash on
hand at the effective date from operations, future income from the
business, and a capital infusion of $3,000 on the effective date
from the equity owners to fund debtor’s obligations under the
Plan.  The equity owners are willing to make this capital
contribution in order to facilitate confirmation of the Plan and
to, in turn, maximize repayment to creditors, although the Debtor
already has substantial negative equity.

JONESBORO HOSPITALITY: Has Final Approval to Use Cash Collateral
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Brenda T. Rhoades of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Eastern District of Texas has entered a final order authorizing
Jonesboro Hospitality, LLC, to use cash collateral in the amounts
and for the expenses set forth on the monthly budget.

The Court finds that a need exists for the Debtor to use cash
collateral in order to continue the operation of its business. At
this time, the Debtor's ability to use cash collateral is vital to
the confidence of the Debtor's employees, vendors and suppliers of
the goods and services, to the customers and to the preservation
and maintenance of the going concern value of the Debtor's estate.

Ciena Capital, LLC and the Internal Revenue Service may claim that
substantially all of the Debtor's assets are subject to their
respective pre-petition liens, which includes liens on rents.

Ciena Capital and the IRS are each granted with valid, binding,
enforceable, and perfected liens co-extensive with their respective
pre-petition liens in all currently owned or hereafter acquired
property and assets of the Debtor, including, without limitation,
all accounts receivable, general intangibles, inventory, and
deposit accounts co-extensive with their prepetition liens.

As adequate protection for the diminution in value of their
interest in the cash collateral, Ciena Capital and the IRS are also
granted replacement liens and security interests, co-extensive with
their prepetition liens.

In addition, the Debtor will pay to Ciena Capital the amount of
$5,000 each month during the term of the Order.

As to the IRS, the Debtor must:

     (1) Stay current on payment of all of its post-petition
payroll taxes;

     (2) Stay current on payment of all of its post-petition
payroll deposits;

     (4) Timely file all of its post-petition employment tax
returns;

     (5) Timely file all federal tax returns and pay all
post-petition federal taxes;

     (6) Provide proof of Federal Trust Fund Deposits of their
deposit to Lorraine Washington at the IRS via facsimile at
888/301-8227 and to Ruth Yeager, Counsel for IRS, via facsimile at
903/590-1436;

     (7) Allow the inspection of the collateral and the Debtor's
books and records at any time upon reasonable notice from the IRS;

     (8) Pay the IRS $1,500 per month as adequate protection for
its secured claim. Such payment will continue each month until (i)
termination of the Final Order by its terms, which will be on
December 31, 2017; (ii) further order of the Court; or (iii)
confirmation of any plan of reorganization in this proceeding.

                      About Marina Biotech

Headquartered in Bothell, Washington, Marina Biotech, Inc. --
http://www.marinabio.com/-- is a biopharmaceutical company engaged
in the discovery, acquisition, development and commercialization of
proprietary drug therapeutics for addressing significant unmet
medical needs in the U.S., Europe and additional international
markets.  The Company's primary therapeutic focus is the disease
intersection of hypertension, arthritis, pain, and oncology
allowing for innovative combination therapies of the plethora of
already approved drugs and the proprietary novel oligotherapeutics
of Marina Biotech, Inc.  The Company's approach is meant to reduce
the risk associated with developing a new drug de novo and also
accelerate time to market by shortening the clinical development
program through leveraging what is already known or can be learned
in its proprietary Patient Level Database (PLD).

Squar Milner LLP, in Los Angeles, California, issued a "going
concern" qualification on the consolidated financial statements for
the year ended Dec. 31, 2016, citing that the Company has suffered
recurring losses and negative cash flows from operations and has
had recurring negative working capital.  This raises substantial
doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.

Marina Biotech reported a net loss of $837,143 on $0 of revenue for
the year ended Dec. 31, 2016, compared with a net loss of $1.11
million on $0 of revenue for the year ended Dec. 31, 2015.  As of
June 30, 2017, Marina had $6.63 million in total assets, $4.15
million in total liabilities and $2.47 million in total
stockholders' equity.

At June 30, 2017, the Company had an accumulated deficit of $4.205
million and a negative working capital of $3.756 million.  The
Company anticipates that it will continue to incur operating losses
as it executes its plan to raise additional funds and investigate
strategic and business development initiatives.  In addition, the
Company has had and will continue to have negative cash flows from
operations.  The Company has previously funded its losses primarily
through the sale of common and preferred stock and warrants, the
sale of notes, revenue provided from its license agreements and, to
a lesser extent, equipment financing facilities and secured loans.
In 2016 and 2015, the Company funded operations with a combination
of the issuance of notes and preferred stock, and license-related
revenues.  At June 30, 2017, the Company had a cash balance of
$263,900.  Its operating activities consume the majority of its
cash resources.

loan facilities will be used, along with cash equity proceeds from
management and sponsor Bain Capital, to effect Navicure's purchase
of ZirMed, pay off $95 million of net Navicure debt, and cover
transaction fees and expenses. The ratings outlook is stable.

Moody's assigned the following ratings to Navicure, Inc.:

-- Corporate Family Rating, assigned B3

-- Probability of Default Rating, assigned B3-PD

-- Senior secured revolving credit facility expiring 2022,
    assigned B2 (LGD3)

-- Senior secured first-lien term loan maturing 2024, assigned B2

    (LGD3)

  -- Senior secured second-lien term loan maturing 2025, assigned
    Caa2 (LGD5)

-- Outlook, assigned Stable

RATINGS RATIONALE

The B3 CFR reflects Navicure, Inc.'s small scale, exceptionally
high pro-forma debt-to-EBITDA leverage, and integration risks as
the healthcare revenue cycle management ("RCM") provider takes on,
with private equity backing, ZirMed, an industry player less
profitable and fifty percent larger than itself. Even with
substantial, favorable adjustments to add back transaction and
consulting fees, exclude losses related to a business divested in
mid-2017, and partial credit for expected cost synergies,
Navicure's June 30, 2017 LTM Moody's-adjusted debt-to-EBITDA
leverage is quite weak for the B3 CFR. Although Moody's expects
leverage will moderate, through operating growth and synergy
realization, it may still be about 8.0 times twelve to 18 months
after closing of the combination with ZirMed.

Servicing the LBO's debt load will limit Navicure's operational and
financial flexibility in a highly competitive, consolidating
environment that includes many players, some considerably larger
and less leveraged than Navicure. Certain of those competitors
offer the same or even more services along the healthcare RCM
continuum than Navicure offers, and customers may opt to limit the
number of vendors they use in order to simplify the outsourcing of
complex services that are subject to regulatory changes. Navicure
seeks to distinguish itself among competitors by offering a
next-generation, SaaS-based suite of products serving a
non-concentrated customer niche of more than 16,000 small to medium
sized physicians' offices and hospitals. The wholesale or "white
label" service offered by many, earlier-generation competitors
stands in contrast to Navicure's "retail" offering, which provides
faster response times, a better support infrastructure, and a
dedicated user interface, all of which allow for better customer
retention and premium pricing.

Moody's believes the complementarity of Navicure's and ZirMed's
products and end markets supports the rationale for the combination
of businesses, but even together the companies present a revenue
base of barely $270 million, small for the B3 rating category. Each
of the combined companies has shown strong, if declining, revenue
growth rates over the past few years, and Moody's expects that
market share growth and cross-selling opportunities will continue
to allow for high-single-digit-percentage growth over the ratings
horizon. Healthcare industry trends -- including increased
healthcare spending, higher patient volumes with lower margins, a
rise in costs attributed to waste and abuse, and greater,
regulatory-driven complexity in the billing process itself -- also
support the rating. Overall, however, it is Moody's views that
integration-execution risk, combined with such a high debt-service
burden and the importance of synergies in order to de-lever,
outweigh the growth profile and the stability of the revenue model.


Moody's views Navicure's liquidity as adequate, as demonstrated by
a minimal opening cash balance and free cash flows that, with the
combined company facing more than a quadrupling of interest expense
(to $40 million), will be pressured in the short term. Revenue
growth and synergy realization should enable free cash flow to be
comfortably positive in 2018. A $50 million revolving credit
facility, undrawn at closing, will support weakness in cash flows,
which have been unpredictable due to Navicure's small size,
one-times costs, and working capital swings. The transaction's
loose covenant package, including a springing net leverage limit
when the revolver is 35% drawn and no covenants associated with the
term loans, suggests the company will have unimpeded access to the
liquidity facility in early quarters.

The stable rating outlook reflects Moody's expectation that
top-line growth of at least 5 to 7% and the realization of
synergies will allow for positive free cash flow as well as for
modest deleveraging, albeit from a level that is exceptionally high
at the outset of the LBO. The ratings could be upgraded if earnings
growth and synergy realization enable Navicure to sustain
Moody's-adjusted debt-to-EBITDA leverage below 6.0 times, and if
free cash flow as a percentage of debt is expected to be sustained
in at least the mid-single digits. A ratings downgrade could result
if Moody's expects free cash flow to turn negative, or if access to
the revolver appears threatened. Failure to achieve at least
mid-single-digit revenue growth or to make progress towards
delevering, due to difficulties integrating ZirMed or falling short
of anticipated synergies, would also pressure the rating.

Navicure, Inc. provides SaaS-based revenue cycle management
services, focusing on healthcare claims management and patient
payment solutions, to physicians' offices and, pro-forma for a
late-2017-announced acquisition of ZirMed, small hospitals and
post-acute-care facilities. Moody's expects the combined company to
generate 2018 revenues of close to $290 million, a roughly 8%
increase over expected 2017 pro-forma levels. The company has been
owned by sponsor Bain Capital since 2016.

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


NAVIENT CORPORATION: Earnest Deal No Impact on Fitch BB IDR
-----------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings views Navient Corporation's (NAVI) announced $155
million acquisition of online lender Earnest, and the concurrent
suspension of its share repurchase program through 2018, as neutral
to the company's 'BB' Issuer Default Rating over the Rating Outlook
horizon, with the potential for positive rating implications over
the longer term.

The proposed acquisition of Earnest, an online loan origination
platform focused primarily on the student loan refinance market, is
the latest in a series of acquisitions announced by NAVI in recent
years as it aims to build upon its core servicing competencies and
diversify its earnings away from its shrinking student loan
portfolio. However, this is the first acquisition of size made
outside of NAVI's Business Services segment. From a strategic point
of view, Fitch views the acquisition positively, as it accelerates
the company's entry into the student loan refinance segment which
it began last year through a partnership with a third party, and
could also better position the company for a re-entry into the
direct private student loan origination business when its
non-compete agreement with Sallie Mae expires in January 2019.

The acquisition of Earnest also provides NAVI more direct control
over the marketing/underwriting/origination process than it
currently has in the student loan refinance segment through its
partnership with a third party, while also providing the company
greater ability to defend its existing loan portfolio which has
experienced a sharper increase in prepayments in recent quarters,
from third-party lenders.

The $155 million acquisition is expected to be funded entirely with
existing cash, with the majority of purchase recorded as goodwill.
While the increase in goodwill and the initial earnings and cash
flow drag from the scaling and integration of Earnest's platform
over the course of 2018 is expected to pressure NAVI's tangible
equity, tangible net asset, and profitability ratios, Fitch
believes this is likely to be temporary and could be more than
offset by the capital and liquidity benefits from the company's
intention to suspend its share repurchase program through at least
the end of 2018.

The company's current $600 million share repurchase authorization
has $160 million remaining on it, which approximates the
acquisition price. While the company's share repurchases have
declined in recent years as NAVI's student loan portfolio continues
to run off, it still represents a meaningful use of the company's
excess liquidity. Consequently, the suspension of the share
repurchase program is viewed positively by Fitch as the excess
liquidity could be used to further reduce NAVI's debt.

Fitch does not expect NAVI's asset quality or funding profile to
change meaningfully over the near- to medium-term as a result of
this acquisition. Nonetheless, were NAVI's unencumbered asset
coverage of unsecured debt to decline below the company's stated
target of 1.2x-1.3x for an extended period, it could result in
negative ratings pressure.

Fitch believes positive rating momentum is likely to be limited for
NAVI in the near term as a result of the rating constraints Fitch
has highlighted previously, including heightened regulatory and
legislative risks, a concentrated business model, longer-term
strategic uncertainty, and the refinancing risk on its sizeable
2018-2020 unsecured debt maturities. Although the company's
liquidity profile and ability to repay its 2018-2020 debt
maturities could be enhanced as a result of the suspension of its
share repurchase program, it is uncertain to what extent the new
loan origination platform, along with other potential acquisitions,
can absorb this excess liquidity, and to what level share
repurchases may resume beyond 2018. That said, to the extent
management is able to execute on these recent acquisitions and
demonstrate an ability to produce meaningful, steady cash flows, it
could result in positive rating momentum over a longer-term time
horizon.

Fitch currently rates NAVI as follows:

Navient Corporation Inc.

-- Long-Term Issuer Default Rating (IDR) at 'BB';
-- Short-Term IDR at 'B';
-- Senior unsecured debt at 'BB'.

The Rating Outlook is Stable.

NEW HOPE: Moody's Lowers 2015A Revenue Bonds Rating to Ba1
----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has downgraded to Ba1 from Baa3 the New
Hope Cultural Education Facilities Finance Corporation, TX's
Student Housing Revenue Bonds (NCCD-College Station Properties
LLC-Texas A&M University Project) Series 2015A and Taxable Student
Housing Revenue Bonds (NCCD-College Station Properties LLC-Texas
A&M University Project) Series 2015B. This rating assignment
affects approximately $361 million of aggregate debt. The rating
remains under review for further downgrade.The downgrade is driven
by fall 2017 leasing levels that are significantly below
expectations with limited prospects for recovery of occupancy to
meet originally projected debt service coverage levels for fiscal
2018. As of July 31, leasing was under 50%, compared to projected
occupancy of over 90% used in Moody's pro-forma analysis. As a
result, Moody's expects that various reserve funds will be tapped
to make timely debt service. The project is offering significant
rent discounts and move-in incentives, highlighting initial lease
up difficulties. The review will focus on prospects for improved
future occupancy, pricing, marketing plans, the operating budget
for fiscal 2018, and the magnitude of expected use of reserves. The
review could result in a multi-notch downgrade.

Rating Outlook

NRG ENERGY: Moody's Affirms Ba3 CFR & Revises Outlook to Positive
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service revised NRG Energy, Inc.'s (NRG) rating
outlook to positive from stable and affirmed NRG's Ba3 Corporate
Family Rating (CFR).

"NRG's transformation plan, which includes selling off about half
of its assets and reducing its leverage, is credit positive," said
Toby Shea VP -- Senior Credit Officer. "Our positive outlook
reflects the view that the benefits of having lower leverage will
outweigh the higher business risk associated with being a smaller,
less contracted company."

RATINGS RATIONALE

NRG will be roughly half of its current size following the
completion of the transformation plan. As a smaller company, NRG
will lose the benefits of its scale and diversity of its cash flows
while margins and earnings will become more market driven since
most of its contracted cash flows will be divested. After the
transformation, NRG will be more concentrated in Texas, as these
business operations become the dominant cash flow contributor
within NRG. Moody's sees the strategic benefits of maintaining the
Texas businesses as an integrated operation with a generation base
that matches the retail load.

"Moody's see some strategic benefits by keeping these assets
integrated. Low wholesale power prices in ERCOT are offset by large
retail margins with sticky customers." added Shea.

According to NRG, the transformation plan will improve NRG's
financial credit metrics because it will lower net debt/EBITDA to
roughly 3.0x on a consolidated basis by the end of 2018. Based on
the company's debt/EBITDA target, Moody's forecasts that NRG's CFO
Pre-WC to debt ratio will improve from about 10% in 2017, to the
mid-teens range in 2018 and around 20% in 2019. As a point of
reference, Moody's financial benchmarks for Ba rating category is
between 12% and 20%.

To achieve the 3.0x net debt/EBITDA target ratio, NRG's
transformation plan calls for a $240 million (or 14%) increase in
holding company EBITDA. This goal appears daunting because NRG will
shed roughly $565 million of holding company EBITDA associated with
its planned divestment of GenOn Energy (ratings withdrawn) and
asset sales. NRG plans to make up the difference through a
combination of lower operating costs and higher revenues -- to the
tune of roughly $805 million. That being said, should cost cuts and
revenue-enhancement initiatives fall short, NRG is committed to use
sales proceeds, estimated to be $2.5 billion to $4 billion, to
reduce debt levels in order to achieve its 3.0x net debt to EBITDA
target.

Liquidity Analysis

NRG's speculative grade liquidity rating is SGL-2. The company
continues to possess good liquidity with $571 million of
unrestricted cash on hand and $1.5 billion of unused capacity on
its $2.5 billion secured revolving credit facility at the end of
June 30, 2017. The only usage under the credit facility is related
to the issuance of letters of credit. NRG's revolving credit
facility, which expires in June 2021, contains a material adverse
change clause.

Moody's expects NRG to produce more than $500 million of
after-dividend free cash flow in 2018, without assuming any
proceeds from asset sales. Excluding non-recourse maturities, NRG
does not have any major debt maturities until July 2022, when $992
million of senior notes becomes due.

Rating Outlook

The positive rating outlook reflects the company's deleveraging
plan to achieve 3x net debt to EBITDA by the end of 2018.

Factors that Could Lead to an Upgrade

Moody's will consider an upgrade to NRG's ratings should the
company achieve CFO Pre-WC/debt in the mid-teens for 2018 on a
sustainable basis.

Factors that Could Lead to a Downgrade

Moody's would consider stabilizing the outlook or take a negative
rating action if the company fails to follow through on its
deleveraging plan. In particular, a downgrade is possible if NRG's
ratio of CFO Pre-WC/debt falls below the low teens range for a
period of time.

Utilities and Unregulated Power Companies published in May 2017.

OMEROS CORP: Settles Infringement Suit with Par Pharmaceutical
--------------------------------------------------------------
Omeros Corporation entered into a settlement agreement with Par
Pharmaceutical, Inc. and its subsidiary Par Sterile Products, LLC
(Par), resolving Omeros' patent litigation against Par.  The
litigation concerned Par's filing of an Abbreviated New Drug
Application (ANDA) seeking approval from the U.S. Food and Drug
Administration (FDA) to market a generic version of Omeros'
commercial drug OMIDRIA (phenylephrine and ketorolac injection) 1%
/ 0.3%.  In the settlement, Par, which had previously stipulated to
infringement, acknowledges and confirms the validity of all
asserted patents for OMIDRIA.  The settlement includes a consent
judgment filed with the U.S. District Court for the District of
Delaware.  Unless subsequently authorized pursuant to terms in the
settlement agreement, Par will be prohibited by the judgment from
launching a generic version of OMIDRIA until April 1, 2032.  The
last-to-expire of Omeros' Orange Book listed patents for OMIDRIA
expires on Oct. 23, 2033.  As part of the settlement agreement, if
and when Par eventually enters the market, Par will pay to Omeros a
royalty of 15 percent of Par's net sales of any generic version of
OMIDRIA until the latest expiration of Omeros' U.S. Patents related
to OMIDRIA.

The litigation against Par began in 2015 after Omeros received a
Paragraph IV certification from Par in connection with Par's filing
of an ANDA seeking the FDA's approval to market a generic version
of OMIDRIA.  Over the course of the litigation, Par had conceded
that its proposed generic version of OMIDRIA would infringe the
Orange Book-listed patents for OMIDRIA.  Par, however, challenged
the patents' validity.  The settlement agreement was entered into
after a three-day trial before the U.S. District Court for the
District of Delaware in July 2017 and post-trial briefing but prior
to the court issuing a decision.  As part of the agreement, Par
acknowledges and confirms the validity of each of the patents
listed in the Orange Book for OMIDRIA, namely U.S. Patent No.
8,173,707, U.S. Patent No. 8,586,633, U.S. Patent No. 9,066,856,
U.S. Patent No. 9,278,101, U.S. Patent No. 9,399,040, and U.S.
Patent No. 9,486,406.

"We are pleased with this settlement and what it represents to our
company and its shareholders," stated Gregory A. Demopulos M.D.,
chairman and chief executive officer of Omeros.  "The settlement
affirms our belief in the strength of our patents for OMIDRIA.
Sales of OMIDRIA continue to grow as more and more facilities and
surgeons incorporate the product into their cataract surgery
routines, improving postoperative outcomes for their patients."

180 calendar days from fiscal year end, or until March 29, 2018, to
regain compliance.  If Nasdaq does not accept the Company's plan,
the Company may, at that time, request a hearing to remain on the
Nasdaq Global Market, which request will ordinarily suspend such
delisting determination until a decision by Nasdaq subsequent to
the hearing.

On Sept. 29, 2017, the Company filed a definitive proxy statement
on Schedule 14A with the Securities and Exchange Commission for an
Annual Meeting of Stockholders to be held on Oct. 26, 2017, to vote
on certain proposals.  While there can be no assurance that the
Company will be successful in regaining compliance with the
continued listing requirements and maintaining its listing of the
Company's common stock on the Nasdaq Global Market, the Company
expects that upon completion of the Meeting, it will be in
compliance with Nasdaq Marketplace Rule 5620(a).

PERFUMANIA HOLDINGS: Court Approves Chapter 11 Plan
---------------------------------------------------
Lillian Rizzo, writing for The Wall Street Journal Pro Bankruptcy,
reported that Perfumania Holdings Inc. received court approval to
move forward with its reorganization plan, which will allow the
troubled mall-based retailer to keep some of its stores open under
new ownership.

According to the report, Judge Christopher Sontchi of the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court in Wilmington, Del., signed off on the plan on
Oct. 6, less than two months after the retailer sought chapter 11
protection.

Perfumania said at the outset of its late-August bankruptcy filing
that it planned to close 64 of its 226 stores while under chapter
11 protection, the report related.

During the company's first-day hearing, Perfumania attorney Lisa
Laukitis said the case was "unusual and has the makings of a
success story" as a retailer that planned to keep its doors open
after seeking bankruptcy protection, the report further related.

The retailer received a lifeline from majority shareholders, the
report noted.  The Nussdorf family, founders of the original
business, and affiliates of investor Rene Garcia, teamed up to
create an investment vehicle to save the chain, the report said.

Under Perfumania's reorganization plan, the new owners offered to
provide about $14.3 million in new equity into the company, the
report said.  With the lifeline, Perfumania had a prepackaged plan
in place that didn't require votes from creditors or lenders, the
report added.

Despite the deal for equity holders, which often receive nothing
when a company seeks bankruptcy protection, one of Perfumania's
minority stockholders raised its voice last month, the report
related.  CIII Holdings Inc. filed papers seeking the appointment
of an official equity committee as the shareholder believed it was
owed a larger distribution, but Judge Sontchi denied the request on
Friday, court papers show, the report said.

RJR TOWING: Has Until Nov. 26 to Exclusively File Plan
------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of Florida agreed
to extend to Nov. 26, 2017, the exclusive period for RJR Towing,
LLC, and NRMT, LLC, to propose a plan of reorganization.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on Sept. 7, 2017, the
Debtors sought a 90-day extension, saying that they continue to
actively negotiate with creditors, including the principal secured
creditor, to develop a plan that is not only feasible but may
result in consent to confirmation by the creditors with the largest
claims.  The Debtors claimed that they are somewhat confident that,
if given additional time, they will be able to resolve the
remaining issues to arrive at a fair and confirmable plan.

                            About RJR Towing

NRMT LLC -- work together to operate a towing business. RJR Towing

RLE INDUSTRIES: Has Final Approval to Use Cash Collateral
---------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Michael E. Wiles of the US Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of New York has entered a final order authorizing
RLE Industries, LLC and NEI Industries, Inc. to use cash collateral
on a final basis nunc pro tunc as of the Petition Date through
October 31, 2017 only in the amounts and for the purposes set forth
in the Budgets.

The Court requires that all of the cash on hand as of October 31,
2017, together with any outstanding accounts receivable, will be
turned over to the Debtors' counsel pending further order of the
Court or confirmation of a plan in the Debtors' Chapter 11 cases.

The Debtors identified two parties who might be affected by its use
of cash collateral: JP Morgan Chase Bank and Merchant Cash and
Capital, LLC d/b/a/ BizFi. The documents submitted to the Court
show that RLE Industries is the primary obligor as to debts owed to
Chase Bank and BizFi. NEI Industries apparently has guaranteed RLE
Industries' obligations to Chase Bank, but not any obligations owed
to BizFi.

Based upon a Merchant Agreement entered into and between Bizfi and
the Debtor, Bizfi asserts that it as of the Petition Date, there
remains due and owing the sum of $337,424, and that therefore,
BizFi has a security/ownership interest in all or part of RLE
Industries' personal property, including the proceeds thereof,
including cash collateral.

Chase Bank asserts security interests in all or part of the
Debtors' personal property, including the proceeds thereof,
including cash collateral.

The nature of the interests of Chase Bank and BizFi in the Debtors'
cash, and the perfection of any claimed interests, has not yet been
determined. To prevent any diminution to the value of Chase Bank's
and/or BizFi's interest in the Debtors' cash, the Court:

     (A) Requires the Debtors to pay, through October 31, 2017,
monthly interest-only debt service payments to Chase Bank, at the
contractual interest rate set forth in the Chase loan documents,
which payments will be applied only to Chase Bank's allowed secured
claims. The adequate protection payments will be allocated among
the Debtors in proportion to the amounts of Chase Bank's cash
collateral that they respectively use.

     (B) Requires RLE Industries to make monthly payments to BizFi
through October 31, 2017 in the agreed amount of $3,500, which
payments will be applied to reduce BizFi's allowed secured claim,
with such payments to be subject to disgorgement in the event that
the Court subsequently determines that BizFi does not have an
allowed secured claim.

     (C) Grants Chase Bank and BizFi adequate protection liens in
all assets of RLE Industries but only to the extent RLE Industries
uses cash pursuant to the Final Order, which adequate protection
liens will only apply to such extent: (i) that Chase Bank and/or
BizFi held valid, perfected and enforceable liens and security
interests in RLE Industries' cash or other properties as of the
Petition Date, (ii) that the Court later determines that the use of
cash collateral has resulted in an actual diminution in the value
of Chase Bank's and/or BizFi's interests in RLE Industries'
properties, and (iii) in the amount of such diminution.

     (D) Grants Chase Bank adequate protection liens in all assets
of NEI Industries to the extent NEI Industries uses cash pursuant
to the Final Order. Such Adequate Protection Liens will only apply
to the extent that Chase Bank held valid, perfected and enforceable
liens and security interests in NEI Industries' cash or other
properties as of the Petition Date, and apply only to the extent
that the Court later determines that the use of cash collateral has
resulted in an actual diminution in the value of Chase Bank's
interests in NEI Industries' properties, and only in the amount of
such diminution.

SEARS CANADA: Deadline for Approval of Liquidation Oct. 13
----------------------------------------------------------
FTI Consulting, the monitor appointed in Sears Canada Inc.'s CCAA
cases, on Oct. 2, 2017, filed a third report, reporting on the
current status of Sears Canada's DIP Credit Agreements, including:

   (a) the negotiation of Seventh Amendments to: (i) modify
       minimum inventory balance thresholds; and (ii) respond to
       the Applicants' failure to meet certain milestones for the
       selection of successful bids by Sept. 25, 2017 and the
       commencement of store closure sales for all locations not
       the subject of those successful bids by Sept. 27, 2017
       (the "Milestone Breaches"); and

   (b) the suspension of funding under the DIP ABL Credit
       Agreement as a result of the Milestone Breaches until the
       time as amendments and forbearance agreements satisfactory
       to the DIP Lenders were entered into pursuant to the
       proposed Seventh Amendments.

                       Liquidation Process

To recall, on July 18, 2017, the Court issued a Liquidation Sale
Approval Order, which approved (i) a process for the liquidation of
inventory, furniture, fixtures and equipment ("FF&E") at locations
scheduled for closure (the "Liquidation Process"); and (ii) in
connection with that Liquidation Process, an Amended and Restated
Agency Agreement and a Consulting Agreement between Sears Canada
and the agent and consultant.

Pursuant to the agreements governing the Liquidation Process, the
Liquidation Process is scheduled to be completed by Oct. 12, 2017.
As of Oct. 2, 2017, the Liquidation Process is complete at all Full
Line, Home and Outlet stores.  Sales at all but one Dealer store
have been completed.  The remaining Dealer store is expected to
close on Oct. 4, 2017.

                          7th Amendments

Paul Bishop and Greg Watson, senior managing directors at FTI,
disclosed Oct. 3, 2017 that the Seventh Amendments have now been
concluded.  The Seventh Amendments include these material
requirements:

  (a) an agreement in form and substance acceptable to the DIP
      Lenders must be entered into with a liquidator to undertake
      liquidations of the remaining Sears Canada locations on
      Oct. 7, 2017 (the "Acceptable Liquidation Agreement");

  (b) the Acceptable Liquidation Agreement must be approved by
      the Court no later than Oct. 13, 2017; and

  (c) a bid that is satisfactory to the DIP Lenders providing
      for a liquidation sale in respect of the stores for which
      Sears Canada has agreed to surrender its leases must be
      delivered to the DIP Lenders by Oct. 6, 2017.

The Acceptable Liquidation Agreement must provide for the
commencement of a liquidation sale at the remaining Sears Canada
locations by Oct. 19, 2017, which date can be extended to Oct. 26,
2017 in the DIP Lenders' discretion.  As a result, the Acceptable
Liquidation Agreement will be able to move forward quickly if a
going concern solution for the business cannot be implemented and
provide greater recoveries to other creditors at that time.

The Seventh Amendments provide for aggregate fees to the DIP
Lenders of US$1,500,000.

As part of the Seventh Amendments, the Applicants and the DIP ABL
Lenders have agreed that draws under the DIP ABL Credit Agreement
will resume in respect of the week ending Oct. 7, 2017 in
accordance with the draft amended budget delivered by Sears Canada
to the DIP Lenders and, in respect of each week thereafter, in
accordance with the then-current DIP budget that has been approved
by the DIP Lenders in their sole discretion.

SEARS CANADA: Sale of Three Business Units Approved
---------------------------------------------------
Sears Canada, Inc., on Oct. 4, 2017, won approval to sell its
Corbeil specialty appliance sales business, SLH transportation and
logistics business, and its home improvement business to three
separate purchasers.

The Ontario Court approved the sale transaction contemplated by an
Asset Purchase Agreement between Corbeil Electrique Inc. as Seller,
Am-Cam Electromenagers Inc. as buyer, Distinctive Appliances Inc.
as Guarantor and Sears Canada as intervenor, dated Oct. 1, 2017.

The Applicants determined that the bid of Am-Cam Electromenagers
Inc., a subsidiary of Distinctive Appliances Inc. -- Corbeil
Purchaser -- was the highest and otherwise best offer for the
Corbeil Business.

The Ontario Court also approved the sale transaction contemplated
by an Asset Purchase Agreement between S.L.H. Transport Inc., Sears
Canada Inc. and 168886 Canada Inc., as vendors, and 8507597 Canada
Inc., as purchaser, made as of Sept. 29, 2017.  The Applicants, in
consultation with BMO, the Monitor and the DIP Lenders, determined
that the bid of 8507597 Canada Inc., a subsidiary of CAT Inc., a
national and cross-border freight carrier in North America, was the
highest and best offer for the SLH Business.

The Ontario Court further approved (x) the sale of Sears Oil
Services, Sears Heating and Cooling and Sears Duct Cleaning
Services, which comprise the "Sears Home Improvements Business",
together with certain ancillary assets contemplated by an Asset
Purchase Agreement between Sears Canada Inc., as vendor, and
Confort Expert Inc. as purchaser dated Sept. 28, 2017, as amended,
and (y) the assignment of certain contracts to the Buyer as
contemplated by the Asset Purchase Agreement between Sears Canada
Inc., as seller, and Confort Expert Inc., as buyer, dated Sept. 28,
2017, with respect to the Sears Home Improvements Business.

Sears Canada carries on a business known as Sears Oil Services /
Produits et services de chauffage au mazout Sears; Sears Heating
and Cooling / Produits de chauffage et de climatisation Sears; and
Sears Duct Cleaning Services / Services de nettoyage de conduits
Sears, which comprise the "Home Services Business", which are
currently operated by Confort Expert Inc. under a Branded
Concession Agreement with Sears Canada.  Pursuant to the SISP,
Confort Expert is the successful bidder in a transaction to acquire
Sears Canada's right, title and interest in the Home Services
Business.

                         Other Assets

Sears Canada also sought approval to sell assets related to the
Viking appliance brand.  Sears Canada is the owner of certain
trademarks related to the Viking appliance brand.  The highest or
otherwise best transaction generated from the SISP for these assets
was an offer from Canadian Tire Corporation, Limited.  The terms of
this transaction are contained in an Asset Purchase Agreement dated
September 29, 2017.  The assets that are the subject of this
transaction are also the subject of a right of first negotiation
and a right of first refusal in favor of The Middleby Corporation.
The Viking ROFR was among the surviving provisions of an expired
License Agreement made December 19, 2002, between Sears Canada and
Viking Range Corporation, as predecessor to Middleby.  Middleby
elected to participate in the SISP bidding process and was provided
a full opportunity both at the Binding Bid Deadline and through
subsequent rounds of negotiations to put its best bid forward in
that process, which ultimately was not the highest or otherwise
best bid.

Sears Canada also received a SISP-compliant offer from Clear
Destination Inc. to purchase Sears Canada's right, title and
interest in a License and Services Agreement dated as of October
31, 2016, pursuant to which Clear Destination Inc. licensed to
Sears Canada certain rights to intellectual property associated
with certain 'ship-to-home' services offered by Sears Canada. The
transaction was, in substance a settlement, of all parties'
existing and future obligations under the license arrangement. The
transaction was undertaken on an 'as is, where is' basis. The
Applicants completed this transaction on Oct. 2, 2017.

As of Oct. 4, 2017, the Canadian Tire and the Clear Destination
deals have not yet been approved by the Court.

SEARS CANADA: Says Stranzl Offer Uncertain, Gives Low Recoveries
----------------------------------------------------------------
FTI Consulting, the monitor appointed in Sears Canada's CCAA cases,
said Oct. 2, 2017, that the individual sales of the assets of Sears
Canada and the liquidation of remaining inventory during the
Holiday season -- rather than a going-concern sale of the assets to
CEO Brandon Stranzl -- would fetch more.

Certain members of Sears Canada's management, specifically Mr.
Brandon Stranzl, Sears Canada's Chief Executive Offer, and his
associates, have submitted a proposal for a going concern
transaction for the Sears Canada business.

Mr. Stranzl on Aug. 15, 2017, stepped away from the day-to-day
operations of Sears Canada and focused efforts on the development
of the going concern proposal.

The sale and investor solicitation process (the "SISP") set Aug.
31, 2017, as the deadline for receipt of Binding Bids and Binding
Lease Modification Proposals.  As of the Binding Bid Deadline, a
number of proposals were received and had not expired or been
revoked.

To participate in the bidding process, the Company's DIP Lenders
were required to provide a written notice of such intention on or
before July 17, 2017.  No such notices were received from the DIP
lenders.

BMO Nesbitt Burns Inc. contacted seven parties who were believed to
have a potential interest in acquiring, or investing in, a
restructured full-line retail business of Sears Canada.

Upon execution of non-disclosure agreements, three of these parties
accessed the electronic data room established for due diligence
purposes by BMO.  One of the interested parties was the Stranzl
Group.

On the Binding Bid Deadline, a number of expressions of interest in
connection with the retail business of Sears Canada were received
and were reviewed in detail by the Applicants, the Special
Committee, the Monitor and their respective legal and financial
advisors, as applicable.  Each of these expressions of interest was
non-compliant with the requirements of a Binding Bid under the SISP
for one or more of the following reasons:

    (a) conditionality regarding due diligence and financing;

    (b) deficiencies in quantum of a cash deposit; or

    (c) deficiencies in the scope of transaction documentation
        provided by potential bidders.

                        Stranzl Group Proposal

The SISP provides that Sears Canada, with the consent of the
Monitor, BMO and the DIP Lenders, could allow a non-compliant bid
to continue in the SISP process.  Sears Canada, with the consent of
the Monitor and BMO, determined that the Stranzl Group Proposal
should continue to be explored in the SISP.  The DIP Lenders were
aware of this approach and neither consented nor objected to Sears
Canada proceeding in that manner.

The other potential bids for the retail business of Sears Canada
have not been advanced at this time either because the quantum of
potential consideration is insufficient, uncertain or the
transactions are otherwise not executable.

Following the Binding Bid Deadline, extensive due diligence
requests from the Stranzl Group were satisfied, meetings were held
with the Stranzl Group to explain concerns with the Stranzl Group
Proposal including its conditionality, the financial terms of the
transaction as compared to other options available to the
Applicants, and timelines to complete the transaction.

On Sept. 25, 2017, a revised bid was submitted by the Stranzl
Group, together with certain conditional financing commitments.
Further meetings were held with the Stranzl Group and their
advisors, including, most recently, on Sept. 27th, and Sept. 29th.

A revised form of asset purchase agreement was delivered on Sept.
29, 2017, however a number of critical economic terms were left
blank.  The Monitor has received a copy of a letter from counsel to
the Stranzl Group indicating that the Stranzl Group intends to
present an updated proposal on value.

According to the Monitor's Third Report, filed Oct. 2, 2017, the
Monitor, the Applicants and their respective advisors and counsel
have worked diligently with the Stranzl Group to achieve a going
concern transaction.  However, as of Oct. 2, 2017, the Monitor
notes that the Stranzl Group Proposal remains conditional in a
number of respects, and accordingly presents significant closing
risk and uncertain recoveries.

The parties are continuing to work with the Stranzl Group to
address the deficiencies in its offer.

According to the Monitor, the current circumstances facing Sears
Canada, with its increasing DIP obligations, its continuing
operating losses and the upcoming holiday season, provide limited
flexibility for the Applicants to continue to seek to advance a
going concern solution.  The Monitor also notes that the DIP Credit
Agreements, as amended, are expected to require that the Applicants
commence a liquidation of inventory at all stores in the very near
future.  As noted earlier in this Third Report, the Applicants'
current liquidity situation requires immediate and ongoing funding
under the DIP ABL Credit Agreement and, as a result, this timeline
is a key consideration.  The Stranzl Group Proposal as currently
presented may not be executable within the timeline and liquidity
available to the Applicants.

The Monitor reviewed the economic terms presented in the initial
Stranzl Group Proposal.  Based upon the Monitor's preliminary
analysis, it appears that the terms of the initial Stranzl Group
Proposal provide lower recoveries to non-assumed unsecured
creditors than are available through individual sales of the
Applicants' remaining assets and a liquidation of remaining
inventory and FF&E.   The Monitor believes the viability of a going
concern transaction can continue to be explored subject to time
constraints imposed by the Applicants' ongoing operating losses,
financing arrangements, liquidity and necessary timelines to
commence a liquidation process, but only in conjunction with (and
not to the exclusion of) the other value maximizing transactions
that can be completed while not necessarily eliminating any
opportunity for the completion of a modified going concern
transaction with the Stranzl Group.

The Monitor has informed the CCAA Court that it is satisfied that
Indigo has the capability to perform its obligations under both the
lease and the Assigned Software Contracts.  Indigo is a publicly
traded company on the TSX. According to Indigo's public
disclosures, as of July 1, 2017, it operated 89 superstores under
the banners Chapters and Indigo and 122 small format stores under
the banners Coles, Indigospirit, SmithBooks and The Book Company.

The Brentwood Mall location was the subject of a proposed
development arrangement in 2015 described in a letter agreement
between Shape Brentwood, Sears Canada and a third party developer.
The proposed development arrangement ascribed significant value to
the Brentwood Mall location and Sears Canada's interest in that
location due to Sears Canada's long term lease at that location.
The Monitor has reviewed correspondence suggesting that the third
party developer that was party to the proposed development
arrangement has asserted that it may have certain consent rights in
connection with the Brentwood Mall Transaction pursuant to the
terms of the letter agreement governing the proposed development
arrangement.  The Monitor has reviewed this matter and has not
identified any such consent rights that exist at this time.

The Avalon Lease transaction is not in the form of the template
agreement for a Lease Surrender Transaction.  The Avalon Lease
transaction is structured as a Lease Amending Agreement between
Sears Canada and Crombie, dated as of September 28, 2017.  Pursuant
to the Avalon Lease Agreement, Crombie agrees to pay a fee to Sears
Canada in return for Sears Canada's agreement to shorten the term
of the Avalon Lease such that it would expire on February 28, 2018.
Sears Canada would be entitled to conduct a liquidation sale of
its inventory, trade fixtures, furniture, chattels, signs, and
other items during the remaining amended term of the Avalon Lease.
This liquidation would be undertaken in accordance with the
guidelines established in the July 18, 2017 Liquidation Sale
Approval Order of the Court.  The Monitor is of the view that the
Avalon Lease Agreement provides sufficient time to complete a
liquidation at the Avalon Mall location.

Default Ratings (IDR) on Sears Holdings and its various subsidiary
entities (collectively, Sears) at 'CC'.

In December 2016, that S&P Global Ratings affirmed its ratings,
including the 'CCC+' corporate credit rating, on Sears Holdings

adequate from adequate based on the impact of continued and
meaningful cash use and constraints on contractually committed
liquidity from cash use and incremental secured funded borrowings,"

significant prospective asset sales or execution of strategic
alternatives for legacy hardline brands into our assessment of
committed liquidity."

Holdings' corporate family rating to 'Caa2' from 'Caa1'.  Moody's
said Sears' 'Caa2' rating reflects the company's sizable operating

STEAK N SHAKE: Moody's Lowers CFR to B3; Outlook Stable
-------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded Steak n Shake Inc.'s Corporate
Family Rating to B3 from B2, Probability of Default Rating to B3-PD
from B2-PD, and senior secured revolving credit facility and term
loan to B3 from B1. The rating outlook is stable.

"The downgrade reflects the continued challenging operating
environment with higher operating costs and reductions in traffic
that have compressed the company's operating margins and weakened
credit protection measures", stated Adam McLaren, Moody's
AVP-Analyst. Moody's expects weak same restaurant sales and
operating performance will lead to leverage rising to over 6.0x.

Downgrades:

Issuer: Steak n Shake Inc.

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

-- Corporate Family Rating, Downgraded to B3 from B2

-- Senior Secured Bank Credit Facility, Downgraded to B3(LGD4)
    from B1(LGD3)

Outlook Actions:

Issuer: Steak n Shake Inc.

-- Outlook, Maintained at Stable

RATINGS RATIONALE

Steak n Shake is constrained by its modest scale in terms of
revenue, number of restaurants, and narrow product offering given
Moody's views that operating performance could be hampered by
negative traffic trends, intense competition and cost inflation
related to labor and input costs. The rating also takes into
consideration the company's high leverage level and shareholder
focused financial policy, including distributions to its owner and
a willingness to use the debt markets to facilitate these
transactions in the past. Steak n Shake is supported by strong
brand awareness in its core markets and a relentless focus on value
that has historically aided same store sales and traffic. The
ratings also reflect the benefit from the company's adequate
liquidity profile.

The stable rating outlook reflects Moody's expectations that Steak
n Shake will take measures to reduce cost and improve margins and
operations in order to offset the challenged traffic and same store
sales trends, while maintaining adequate liquidity.

Steak n Shake's ratings could be upgraded if leverage is sustained
below 6.0x and EBIT/interest above 1.25x. A higher rating would
also require the company maintain adequate liquidity. Ratings could
be downgraded if debt/EBITDA increased and was sustained above 7.0x
or EBIT/interest declined to below 1.0x. Any deterioration in
liquidity would also create downward ratings pressure.

Steak n Shake Inc. is the owner, operator and franchisor of Steak n
Shake restaurants which sells premium hamburgers and milk shakes in
about 416 owned and 186 franchised restaurants. Steak n Shake is a
wholly-owned subsidiary of Biglari Holdings Inc. and generated net
revenue of $794 million for the last twelve month period ended June
28, 2017.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Restaurant
Industry published in September 2015.

SWITCH LTD: Initial IPO No Impact on Moody's B1 CFR
---------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service said that Switch, Ltd.'s (Switch) Initial
Public Offering (IPO) is credit positive but it does not currently
affect the ratings, including its B1 corporate family rating (CFR)
and B1 senior secured rating. Switch issued 31.25 million shares of
Class A stock at $17 per share October 5, 2017, raising $513
million from its IPO. The company intends to use the proceeds for
general corporate purposes and working capital which may include
the repayment of debt. Moody's views the IPO as credit positive
because it boosts liquidity and will likely be used to prefund
capital spending and to repay a portion of its outstanding revolver
balance ($231 million as of June 30, 2017), which should result in
lower overall leverage.

Switch's B1 CFR reflects its strong growth profile and high margins
and the company's market position operating some of the world's
largest data centers providing retail colocation and
interconnection services. These factors are offset by the company's
small scale, moderately high leverage and negative free cash flow
resulting from the high capital intensity required to support
growth. Moody's expects Switch to have negative free cash flow for
at least the next two years due to the capital investments to
support growth. The rating is also supported by the company's
growing base of contracted recurring revenues, its patent protected
technology, innovative data center design concepts and value
proposition that differentiate itself from competitors, its strong
network footprint and the favorable near-term growth trends for
data center services across the world. In addition, the company has
a solid asset base relative to its debt load and owns the majority
of its assets, which should allow for significant operating
leverage as the business scales.

The B1 rating could be upgraded if leverage was sustained below
4.5x (Moody's adjusted) and free cash flow was positive, both on a
sustainable basis. The rating could be downgraded if liquidity
deteriorates or if leverage is sustained above 5.5x (Moody's

TONGJI HEALTHCARE: Incurs $163K Net Loss in First Quarter
---------------------------------------------------------
Tongji Healthcare Group, Inc., filed with the Securities and
Exchange Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q reporting a
net loss of $163,189 on $338,396 of total operating revenue for the
three months ended March 31, 2017, compared to a net loss of
$125,305 on $501,666 of total operating revenue for the three
months ended March 31, 2016.

As of March 31, 2017, Tongji Healthcare had $8.32 million in total
assets, $14.70 million in total assets, $14.70 million in total
liabilities and a total stockholders' deficit of $6.37 million.

Net cash used in operating activities primarily consists of net
loss, as adjusted by depreciation, stock option, and changes in
non-cash working capital items such as accounts receivable, medical
supplies, capital lease deposits, prepaid expense and other current
assets, accounts payables and accrued liabilities , and other
payables.

Net cash used in operating activities was $43,698 for the three
months ended March 31, 2017, a decrease of $62,358 or 334% as
compared with the net cash provided by operating activities of
$18,660 for the same period in 2016.  The decrease in net cash
provided in operating activities was primarily due to the reduced
revenue, resulting in a $37,884 increase in net loss.

Net cash used in investing activities was $0 for the three months
ended March 31, 2017, a decrease of $50,957 or 100%, as compared
with the net cash used in investing activities of $50,957 for the
same period in 2016.  The decrease in net cash used in investing
activities was primarily due to disposal of construction in
progress in 2016, resulting reduced cash contribution in the
current period.

Net cash provided by financing activities primarily consists of
proceeds from related party loans.

Net cash provided by financing activities was $37,940 for the three
months ended March 31, 2017, a decrease of $26,399 or 41%, as
compared with the net cash provided by financing activities of
$64,339 for the same period in 2016.  The decrease was primarily
attributable to decrease in funds advanced by related parties due
to disposal of construction in progress.

The Company's working capital was negative $6,947,247 as of March
31, 2017, as compared with negative $6,745,663 as of Dec. 31, 2016,
a decrease of $201,584, which is primarily attributable to the
increase in related party loans of approximately $128,054, decrease
in accounts receivable of approximately $48,778 and increase in
other payables of approximately $49,533.

TRANSOCEAN INC: Fitch Rates Unsecured Guaranteed Notes Due 2026 BB
------------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has assigned a 'BB/RR2' rating to Transocean Inc.'s
(NYSE: RIG) issuance of unsecured guaranteed notes due 2026.
Proceeds from the notes will be used to repay or redeem the 2017
and 2018 maturities and for general corporate purposes. The notes
will rank pari passu with Transocean's existing unsecured
guaranteed debt.

Fitch recognizes that the notes offering will increase forecasted
base case consolidated gross debt metrics around 0.5x, but
consolidated net leverage metrics will remain relatively unchanged
over the next few years. Fitch's base case, on a pro forma basis
for the announced notes and Songa Offshore transactions, results in
debt/EBITDA of 7.2x and 5.6x on a gross and net debt basis,
respectively, in 2018. Fitch believes the access to capital markets
and, as a consequence, increased cash position, should help
moderate the medium-term probability of default. Another
consideration is that the transaction further supports credit
facility renegotiation prospects.

KEY RATING DRIVERS

Songa Transaction Supports Strategic Financial Initiatives:
Transocean recently announced the acquisition of Songa Offshore,
which owns seven harsh-environment, ultra-deepwater floaters (three
stacked), for a total enterprise value of approximately $3.4
billion. The four working rigs are under long-term contracts with
Statoil, favorably providing approximately $4.1 billion of backlog.
Fitch believes the transaction supports the company's strategic and
financial initiatives by high-grading assets with a core offshore
customer in an operationally attractive region, while improving the
forecasted leverage profile.

Weak Offshore Rig Market: Fitch continues to believe the offshore
driller recovery will be protracted with an estimated recovery
inflection point of second-half 2018. In addition, Fitch
anticipates the floater market rebalance will be more orderly than
the jackup market. The shorter-cycle, lower break-even cost of
shallow water projects suggests the jackup market will realize an
earlier uptick in demand, which is beginning to materialize.
However, the more diversified operator and customer base, as well
as relatively low rig carrying costs, indicate tendering will be
more competitive, making material day-rate increases elusive
without a strong demand recovery or considerable scrapping
activity.

The longer-cycle, higher gross development cost of deepwater
projects is anticipated to result in a demand lag. However, Fitch
believes the more concentrated floater customer base will result in
a demand-driven floater recovery with preference toward larger,
established drillers. Another consideration is the relatively high
rig carry-cost, which will financially force some market
participants to retire uncompetitive floaters. Day rates are
anticipated to remain challenged and range-bound reflecting the
market imbalance and economics required to reactivate stacked
rigs.

Consolidation is likely necessary for rig supply to better align
with the lower expected mid-cycle rig demand. However, drillers
seem reluctant to take meaningful steps toward consolidation given
the uncertain timing of an offshore recovery, wide bid-ask spreads,
a general need to use dilutive equity currency, and liquidity and
balance sheet risks. Fitch has observed some consolidation activity
but believes that the proposed acquisition funding and backlog of
Songa Offshore mitigates some of these consolidation
considerations.

Positive FCF; Widening Metrics: Fitch's base case projects that
Transocean, on a pro forma basis for the announced notes and Songa
Offshore transactions, will be approximately $325 million and $500
million FCF positive in 2017 and 2018, respectively. Fitch's base
case, on a pro forma basis for the announced notes and Songa
Offshore transactions, results in debt/EBITDA of 7.2x and 5.6x on a
gross and net debt basis, respectively, in 2018. Fitch recognizes
that the secured notes, as well as any potential future secured
note issuances, structurally subordinate contracted cash flows to
service corporate debt and believes that adjusted corporate
leverage metrics, excluding rig secured debt and associated cash
flows, could rise above the consolidated metrics.

Security Supports Notes Ratings: Fitch's corporate recovery
analysis uses an $875 million sustainable, post-default EBITDA
reflecting the potential for additional rig fleet rationalization
and a prolonged period of challenged and range-bound day rates.
Fitch assumed a relatively conservative 5x EBITDA multiple that
considers recent market transactions and historical distressed
asset sales. The estimated going concern value was discounted by
15% for administrative and priority claims given the large, global
nature of the company's asset base. The distributable value was
allocated to the guaranteed unsecured and unsecured debt, plus any
assumed corporate unsecured recovery claims associated with the
secured debt, based on relative security, The secured debt recovery
uses a $60 million sustainable, post-default EBITDA reflecting
contract performance and renegotiation risks during a weak offshore
rig market environment and a 5x multiple.

The senior unsecured guaranteed notes (BB/RR2) have structural
seniority given the guarantee by Transocean Ltd. and Transocean
Inc. subsidiaries that indirectly own substantially all of the
group assets. The Transocean Phoenix 2 and Transocean Proteus
secured debt ratings (BB-/RR3) consider the structural seniority of
the notes given the lien on the Deepwater Thalassa and Proteus and
certain other assets related to the rigs, as well as guarantees by
Transocean Ltd., Transocean Inc., and a wholly owned indirect
subsidiary that owns each respective ultra-deepwater (UDW) rig,
operating under a 10-year Shell (AA-/Negative Outlook) contract.
Fitch views the guarantee as an additional (secondary) payment
support that is essentially a payment-put to the extent the
contracted cash flows are insufficient to repay the secured notes.
The supportive contract features, strong operating history, and
favorable contract performance history between Transocean and Shell
provide a level of confidence in the UDW rigs' ability to
independently meet its annual debt service. However, contract
performance and renegotiation as well as refinance risks remain.

DERIVATION SUMMARY

Transocean's ratings are supported by its market position as one of
the largest global offshore drillers with a strong backlog ($10.2
billion as of July 25, 2017; pro forma $14.3 billion) and
exclusively floater-focused rig fleet (pro forma 49 total rigs with
19 stacked) largely contracted with financially stronger
international oil companies. The size and length of the company's
backlog contrasts sharply with peers that generally have smaller
backlogs which exhibited considerable declines in the 2018-2019
timeframe. This favorable backlog profile provides substantial
financial flexibility during a deep cyclical downturn. Transocean
has also proactively high-graded and focused its fleet via
rationalization (39 floaters removed from the marketed fleet as of
Sept. 22, 2017), divestiture (jackup fleet), and M&A (pending Songa
Offshore acquisition; 4 contracted 'Cat-D' and 3 stacked
harsh-environment, semisubmersible rigs) activities.

While several peers have also taken steps to competitively position
their fleets, Transocean has generally taken a more robust view of
its fleet that seems to support their strategic, operational, and
financial goals. Nevertheless, Transocean, generally consistent
with its offshore rig peers, has a considerable debt burden and
continued need to generate and conserve liquidity given the weak
offshore rig-market outlook, unfavorable capital market conditions,
heightened maturities profile, and newbuild capex commitments.
Fitch recognizes, however, that the company is among the only
offshore drillers that is managing its long-term capital structure
through-the-cycle, as well as increasing its exposure to
contractually linked amortizing debt.

KEY ASSUMPTIONS

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

-- Brent oil price that trends up from $52.50/barrel in 2017 to a

    longer-term price of $57.50/barrel;
-- Pro forma contracted backlog is forecast to remain intact with

    no material renegotiations;
-- Market day-rates assumed to be at or near cash breakeven
    levels;
-- Fleet composition considers announced rig retirements and
    attempts to adjust for uncompetitive rigs due to their
    technological obsolescence, undifferentiated market position,
    or cost-prohibitive through-the-cycle economics;
-- Capital expenditures of approximately $500 million, $165
    million, and $190 million in 2017, 2018, and 2019,
    respectively, plus Songa Offshore spending generally
    consistent with recent levels over the next couple of years;
-- Songa Offshore acquisition completed by YE2017 assuming the
    announced transaction funding, including approximately $660
    million convertible bond, $540 million Transocean equity, and
    $480 million cash;
-- No additional Shell UDW secured debt issuances.

RATING SENSITIVITIES

Future Developments That May, Individually or Collectively, Lead to
Positive Rating Action
For an Upgrade to 'BB-':
-- Demonstrated commitment by management to lower gross debt
    levels;
-- Mid-cycle debt/EBITDA of below 5.0x on a sustained basis;
-- Further progress in implementing the company's asset strategy
    to focus on the high-specification and UDW markets.

To Resolve the Negative Outlook at 'B+':
-- Demonstrated ability to secure tenders that constructively
    contribute to the backlog and cash flows signalling the
    company's ability to manage the industry's re-contracting risk

    and bridge its financial profile through-the-cycle;
-- Continued progress toward generating and preserving liquidity;
-- Mid-cycle debt/EBITDA of 5.0x-5.5x on a sustained basis.

Future Developments That May, Individually or Collectively, Lead to
Negative Rating Action
-- Failure to manage FCF, repay near-term maturities, and retain
    adequate liquidity over the next few years;
-- Additional issuance of secured debt that structurally
    subordinates contracted newbuild cash flows resulting in
    materially lower corporate cash flows;
-- Material, sustained declines in rig utilization and day rates
    signaling a heightened level of re-contracting and recovery
    risk;
-- Mid-cycle debt/EBITDA around 6.0x on a sustained basis.

LIQUIDITY

Adequate Liquidity Profile: Transocean has cash and cash
equivalents of approximately $2.5 billion as of June 30, 2017 and
restricted cash of $537 million, some of which is held as cash
collateral for the Eksportfinans Loans and for security of certain
other credit arrangements. Pro forma cash and equivalents,
including cash consideration for the Songa Offshore transaction, is
approximately $2 billion as of June 30, 2017. The company has the
potential for additional cash associated with the monetization of
the two to-be-delivered Shell newbuild rigs (recent Shell secured
debt transactions resulted in approximately $600 million and $625
million per rig).

Supplemental liquidity is provided by the company's $3 billion
senior unsecured revolving credit facility due June 2019. The
company had $3 billion in available borrowing capacity on this
facility as of June 30, 2017. Fitch believes Transocean has solid
credit facility renegotiation prospects given its cash position,
manageable maturity profile, and secured debt capacity
(Fitch-calculated secured debt capacity of around $200 million; pro
forma of about $500 million following the Songa acquisition).

Proactive Maturity Management: Transocean has annual senior
unsecured notes maturities equal to approximately $152 million,
$401 million, $292 million, and $332 million in 2017, 2018, 2020,
and 2021, respectively. These represent the company's 2.5% senior
notes due October 2017, 6% senior notes due March 2018, 7.375%
senior notes due April 2018, 6.5% senior notes due November 2020,
and 6.375% senior notes due December 2021. Proceeds from the
announced notes offering will be used to repay or redeem the 2017
and 2018 maturities. This excludes rig-level secured debt principal
amortization that effectively has contract-linked payments.
Management has been proactively tendering and repurchasing debt in
the open market over the past couple of years in an effort to
incrementally improve the near-term liquidity and maturity profiles
by reducing interest payments and, in some instances, capture a par
discount.

Headroom Under Current Covenants: Transocean, as provided in its
bank credit agreement, is currently subject to a maximum
debt-to-tangible capitalization ratio of 0.6x (0.34x as of June 30,
2017), excluding intangible asset impairments and certain other
items. Other customary covenants consist of lien limitations and
transaction restrictions. Additionally, the Shell UDW secured notes
contain covenants that limit the ability of the borrowing
subsidiaries to declare or pay dividends, and impose a maximum
collateral rig leverage ratio of 5.75x (less than 5x as of June 30,
2017).

Manageable Other Liabilities: Transocean maintains several defined
benefit pension plans, both funded and unfunded, in the U.S. and
abroad. As of Dec. 31, 2016, the company's funded status was
negative $351 million. Fitch considers the level of pension
obligations to be manageable, on a mid-cycle basis, and the U.S.
benefits freeze helps to alleviate any future pension-related
credit risks.

Other contingent obligations primarily comprise newbuild purchase
commitments and service agreement obligations totaling
approximately $1.5 billion on a multi-year, undiscounted basis as
of Dec. 31, 2016, adjusting for the transfer of jackup obligations.
The vast majority of the post-2017 newbuild purchase obligations
are associated with the current 2020 delivery of the uncontracted
UDW rigs, which the industry has demonstrated an ability to defer.

TULARE LOCAL: Fitch Lowers IDR to D After Bankruptcy
----------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has downgraded to 'D' from 'CC' the Issuer Default
Rating (IDR) of Tulare Local Health Care District, CA d/b/a Tulare
Regional Medical Center (TRMC) and downgrades to 'C' from 'CC' the
rating on the $13,650,000 of series 2007 fixed-rate bonds issued by
TRMC. The downgrade of the series 2007 bonds to 'C' indicates that
default appears inevitable.

KEY RATING DRIVERS

BANKRUPTCY FILING: The downgrade of the IDR to 'D' reflects TRMC's
filing of a petition to commence proceedings as a debtor under
chapter 9 of the United States Bankruptcy Code on September 30,
2017 in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District
of California. A notice pertaining to the TRMC bankruptcy filing
was made to series 2007 bondholders by the trustee on Oct. 3, 2017.
The notice indicated that the bond reserve account had a value of
$1,413,289.65 as of the date of the notice.

DOWNGRADE OF SECURITY RATING: The downgrade of the series 2007
bonds to 'C' indicates that default appears inevitable absent
timely third-party intervention to support operations and debt
service payments. The 'C' rating incorporates security provided by
a trustee-held Bond Reserve Account and monthly funding of interest
and principal to the series 2007 Bond Revenue Fund through at least
July 2017. Funds in the Bond Reserve Account Bond Revenue Fund
appear sufficient to fund debt service through the November 2017
and May 2018 payment dates.

INABILITY TO MEET FINANCIAL OBLIGATIONS: The voluntary petition
included factual findings among which were that TRMC is or will be
unable to pay its obligations within the next 60 days and that TRMC
has zero cash in its bank accounts. TRMC has insufficient cash to
pay its employees and vendors, posing an imminent risk of closure
and a risk to public health and safety.

RATING SENSITIVITIES

IDR RATING: The IDR has reached the lowest level on Fitch's rating
scale. An upgrade is unlikely at this time given the bankruptcy
proceedings underway.

SECURITY-SPECIFIC RATING: Failure to make payment of principal/and
or interest under the contractual terms of the series 2007 bonds
will result in downgrade to a rating of 'D'.


TULARE LOCAL: Moody's Cuts GO Rating to Ba3; Outlook Remains Neg.
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has downgraded to Ba3 from Ba2 the rating
on Tulare Local Health Care District, CA's general obligation
bonds. Moody's has also maintained the negative outlook.
Approximately $84.1 million of Election of 2005, Series A (2007),
Election of 2005, Series B-1 (2009) and Election of 2005, Series
B-2 (2009) general obligation debt remains outstanding. The
downgrade to Ba3 with a negative outlook reflect the district's
recent filing for Chapter 9 bankruptcy protection on September 30.
The rating is also based upon the district's deteriorating
financial and operational performance, nonexistent cash liquidity,
failure to secure financing to complete construction of a planned
medical tower, dysfunctional board relations, poor reporting and
oversight practices, and the possibility of closure. Serving to
offset significant risks to the hospital's future viability, the
Ba3 rating is bolstered by the strength of a voter-approved,
unlimited property tax pledge and the well-established levy and
collection history of the county for the debt service payments.
Tulare county (Issuer Rating Aa2) rather than the health care
district, levies, collects and disburses the district's property
taxes directly to Wilmington Trust N.A. as trustee, in the month
prior to debt service payments, which are due on August and
February 1st. This arrangement insulates the GO levy from the
district's operations. As a purely legal matter, the GO levy can
only be used for GO debt service. The district's growing tax base,
supported by favorable performance of the area's largely
agricultural economy, also strengthens the credit quality of the
district's GO bonds. Beginning in January 2014, medical center
operations were outsourced under a Management Services Agreement to
HealthCare Conglomerate Associates, LLC (HCCA). While the new
management team initially improved operating performance in fiscal
2014 and 2015, they have failed to secure financing to complete
construction on a new medical tower following voters' failure in
August 2016 to approve general obligation funding for the remainder
of the project. As a result, the district has experienced two
years' of year-over-year declines in revenues and patient volumes,
eroding financial performance and liquidity. The district is in
arrears for payroll and water and electric charges and faces a
number of lawsuits from vendors for delinquencies. It also owes
HCCA approximately $14 million for a working capital loan. In
combination, these factors pose serious risks to the hospital as a
going concern and increase the likelihood of eventual closure.

Rating Outlook

The negative outlook reflects ongoing risks associated with the
district's recent filing for Chapter 9 bankruptcy protection and
questionable future viability of the hospital. The district's
considerable challenges include two consecutive years of operating
income and patient utilization declines and an eradicated cash
position. The district's failure to secure financing for completion
of a new medical tower increases the likelihood of continued
deterioration in these metrics. Dysfunctional board relations,
combined with weak reporting and oversight practices, are likely to
prevent effective decision making, increasing the likelihood of
further credit deterioration and future closure of the hospital.

Factors that Could Lead to an Upgrade

Finalization of financing for new medical tower with evidence that
ongoing operations can comfortably support this obligation

Full repayment of $14 million loan from HCCA with restoration of
satisfactory liquidity

Restoration of sounds finances with consistent performance and
substantially improved utilization

Clarity on the treatment of the GO bonds during the pendency of the
bankruptcy

Factors that Could Lead to a Downgrade

Interruption or delays in the county's normal property tax
collection and remittance practices

Evidence of potential nonpayment of general obligation debt
service

Hospital closure, in the absence of clarity on the GO bonds being
held harmless in the bankruptcy

Legal Security

The bonds are secured by the district's voter-approved, unlimited,
ad valorem property tax pledge. Significant to the GO bonds'
security, Tulare county (Issuer Rating Aa2) rather than the health
care district, levies, collects and disburses the district's
property taxes. This arrangement further insulates the GO levy from
the district's operations. As a purely legal matter, the GO levy
can only be used for GO debt service.

Use of Proceeds

N/A

Obligor Profile

Located on the west side of Tulare County (Issuer Rating Aa2) in
the City of Tulare (Issuer Rating A1), the district serves a
roughly 450 square mile area with an approximate population of
100,000. The hospital has several competitors within 30 miles,
although none exist within the district's boundaries or its primary
service area.

Methodology

The principal methodology used in this rating was US Local
Government General Obligation Debt published in December 2016. An
additional methodology used in this rating is the Not-For-Profit
Healthcare Rating Methodology published in November 2015.


UNCAS LLC: Plan Confirmation Hearing Moved to Oct. 30
-----------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Connecticut moved the
hearing to consider approval of Connect REO, LLC's proposed Chapter
11 plan of reorganization for Uncas, LLC, to Oct. 30.

The court also set an Oct. 20 deadline for equity holders to file
their objections and cast their votes accepting or rejecting the
plan.

The deadline for creditors and other parties to file their
objections expired on Sept. 13.

According to Connect REO's latest disclosure statement filed on

US VIRGIN ISLANDS PFA: S&P Withdraws CCC+ CCR on Lack of Info
-------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings has withdrawn its 'CCC+' ratings on the Virgin
Islands Public Finance Authority's senior and subordinate-lien
matching fund loan notes, issued for the U.S. Virgin Islands
(USVI), as well as its 'CCC' rating on the authority's gross
receipts tax (GRT) notes. S&P withdrew the ratings immediately
after they were removed from CreditWatch with negative
implications.

In this press release, originally published Oct. 5, 2017, the
description of the loan notes was incomplete. A corrected version
follows.

"This action follows USVI's indication of its intent as of Aug. 25,
2017, to stop directly providing information to us to support our
rating on the authority's matching fund notes and GRT loan notes,"
said S&P Global Ratings credit analyst Oladunni Ososami, "and our
subsequent attempt to obtain timely information of satisfactory
quality to maintain our rating on the securities in accordance with
our applicable criteria and policies."

S&P said, "While we are withdrawing our ratings on the USVI, we
also note that both hurricanes Irma and Maria recently hit the
territory. In our view, these hurricanes are likely to weaken its
economy and finances both in the immediate term and over a longer
horizon.


US VIRGIN ISLANDS: Moody's Puts Caa1 Lien Bond Ratings on Review
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has placed on review with direction
uncertain the ratings of the US Virgin Islands' four liens of
matching fund revenue bonds, issued through the Virgin Islands
Public Finance Authority, affecting approximately $1.2 billion in
outstanding debt. The ratings placed on review are: Senior Lien
Bonds Caa1; Subordinate Lien Bonds Caa1; Subordinated Indenture
(Diageo) Bonds Caa2; and Subordinated Indenture (Cruzan) Bonds
Caa2. The placement of these ratings on review is prompted by the
Virgin Islands government's extremely weak financial and liquidity
condition prior to the recent hurricanes, the likely negative
effect of the hurricanes on the government's finances and
liquidity, and the limited amount of available financial and
operating information, both before and after the storms.

The matching fund revenue bonds are secured by remittances to the
Virgin Islands government from the US government of excise taxes
collected on rum produced in the territory and exported to the US.
The matching fund revenues are currently paid directly by the US
Treasury to the trustee. This mechanism, however, has not been
tested in a stress situation in which the government attempts to
divert pledged revenue for general government purposes. In
addition, the matching fund revenue bonds would likely be included
in any attempt to restructure the government's debt.

Moody's review will focus on both: (1) an assessment of the
government's financial condition and the risks it poses to the
matching fund revenue bonds, and (2) an evaluation of whether the
available information is sufficient to maintain these ratings going
forward. Possible rating actions could include confirmation,
downgrade, or withdrawal of the ratings on the bonds.

Methodology

The principal methodology used in this rating was US Public Finance
Special Tax Methodology published in July 2017.

VANTAGE SPECIALTY: Moody's Lowers Corporate Family Rating to B3
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded Vantage Specialty Chemicals,
Inc.'s corporate family rating (CFR) to B3 from B2 and probability
of default rating (PDR) to B3-PD from B2-PD following H.I.G
Capital's (HIG) agreement to acquire Vantage from the Jordan
Company in September 2017.

At the same time, Moody's assigned B3 ratings to the new $75
million revolving credit facility due 2022 and $465 million senior
secured first lien term loan due 2024. Additionally, Moody's
assigned a Caa2 rating to Vantage's new $170 million senior secured
second lien term loan due February 2025. Vantage will use the
proceeds from the debt issuance to repay its existing debt and to
finance its acquisition by HIG. The transaction is expected to
close in October 2017. The ratings outlook is stable.

The following summarizes the ratings activity:

Ratings Downgraded:

Vantage Specialty Chemicals, Inc.

Corporate Family Rating -- B3

Probability of Default Rating -- B3-PD

Outlook: Stable

Ratings Assigned:

Vantage Specialty Chemicals, Inc. (Co-borrowers: Vantage
Specialties, Inc., Vantage Oleochemicals, Inc.)

$75 million Gtd senior secured first lien revolving credit facility
due 2022 -- B3 (LGD3)

$465 million Gtd senior secured first lien term loan due 2024 -- B3
(LGD3)

$170 million Gtd senior secured second lien term loan due February
2025 -- Caa2 (LGD5)

Ratings Unchanged, to be Withdrawn at close of transaction:

Vantage Specialties, Inc.:

$60 million senior secured revolving credit facility due 2019 -- B2
(LGD3)

$386 million senior secured first lien term loan due 2021 -- B2
(LGD3)

$40 million senior secured second lien term loan due 2022 -- Caa1
(LGD6)

The ratings are subject to the receipt and review of final
documentation.

Stable Outlook

RATINGS RATIONALE

The downgrade of Vantage's Corporate Family Rating (CFR) to B3
reflects increasing debt leverage after the buyout by private
equity firm HIG, the low growth industry fundamentals and extended
period of time needed to reduce debt leverage.

The proposed transactions will increase Vantage's total debt by
about $195 million assuming no use of the $75 million revolver.
Moody's expects Debt/EBITDA to increase to about 7.0x, including
Moody's standard analytical adjustments, from 5.0x for the last
twelve months ended June 2017.

While pent-up demand for oleochemicals after a weak 2016, ongoing
cost savings and increasing contribution from specialty products
will support sales volume and earnings improvement in the next
12-18 months, free cash flow growth will likely remain modest due
to working capital consumption, restructuring and
transaction-related cash outlays. Swings in receivables and
inventories, coupled with frequent acquisition and restructuring
related payments, resulted in volatile free cash flow generation in
the range of $5 million to $25 million per annum during 2012 and
2016. Moody's expects an extended period of time needed for Vantage
to use free cash flow to de-lever given the overall modest level of
free cash flow to debt and the exhibited volatility in free cash
flow in the past.

As overall business growth remains low in its mature oleochemicals
business, Moody's expects the company will continue to focus on
cost saving initiatives and identify bolt-on acquisitions in the
specialty derivatives to support growth and margins. Vantage
acquired multiple companies in the specialty businesses in the last
five years, including the latest Mallet acquisition in 2016, to
grow and diversify its product offerings into personal care and
food applications. Given its acquisition strategy, debt leverage
has been consistently high in the range of 4.5x and 6.0x over the
last five years.

The modest size of Vantage, reflected by its revenues of $544
million, for the LTM period ending Jun 30, 2017, also constrains
the credit profile. While the company has operations in Ohio,
Arizona, Argentina and Pittsburgh, the meaningful operational
dependence of the business on its two Illinois based manufacturing
sites as well as the narrow financial disclosure that is inherent
with a non-public filer also limit the rating.

The B3 rating is supported by good EBITDA margins (16.5% for the
LTM ending Jun 30, 2017) and established market positions in a wide
range of end-uses, including cosmetics, fuel additives, detergents,
and foods. Acquisitions since 2015 in personal care and food
applications have improved its EBITDA margin from low teens three
years ago. Supporting Vantage's rating are the natural raw
materials of animal and vegetable fats, which are considered
sustainable and renewable. Additionally, the company benefits from
the resilience in its end-products which allow for the use in food
and food processing, applications for personal care products, and
suitability for "natural" and "green" requirements. Furthermore, in
many applications Vantage's products represent a small part of the
overall cost of finished goods for the customer, but provide a
functional attribute. Vantage also benefits from favorable customer
retention in the Specialty Derivatives business segment, wherein
customers are more averse to switching to alternate suppliers due
to concerns over the potential for change to product performance
caused by differing formulations.

Vantage's liquidity is good, supported by the expected positive
free cash flow, and availability under the newly proposed $75
million first lien revolver with a maturity in 2022. The revolver
is expected to be used for working capital needs. Capital
expenditures are modest and expected to be about $15 million per
annum. While there is no regular dividend, in November of 2013,
Vantage distributed an $83 million special dividend to the Jordan
Company and management shareholders. Dividends are not expected in
the near term, but may occur over time.

Vantage will place a new $465 million first lien term loan due in
2024 and $170 million second lien term loan due 2025 in order to
repay its existing $386 million first lien and $40 million second
lien credit facilities and to fund its buyout by private-equity
firm HIG. The B3-rated first lien revolver and first lien term loan
benefit from the security of substantially all assets of the
company on a first priority basis. The first lien revolver will
have a springing first lien net leverage covenant, which will be
set at a mutually agreed level with at least a 35% cushion, once
its utilization exceeds 35%. The $170 million second lien term
loan, rated Caa2, reflects its effective subordination to first
lien debt in the capital structure.

The stable outlook reflects that Vantage's revenues will generally
experience modest growth, and benefit from the Specialty
Derivatives business and the recent acquisition that have added
higher margin products. Additionally, Moody's expects Vantage to
retain relationships with key customers and continue to move away
from commodity to more innovative specialty applications.
Furthermore, the company will continue to benefit from the steady
performance of the Oleochemical business, which is aided by
customer contracts on its fatty acid business that include cost
adjustments that stabilize margins as raw materials prices change.

Moody's would consider upgrading the ratings if the company
achieved leverage sustainably below 6.0x, and realized Retained
Cash Flow/Debt sustainably above 10%. Conversely, the ratings or
outlook could be lowered if earnings or liquidity were to
deteriorate, resulting in negative free cash flow, lower margins,
or leverage sustained above 7.5x.

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

Vantage Specialty Chemicals, Inc., based in Chicago, Illinois, is a
privately-held company that focuses on natural ingredient products
including those derived from animal fat and vegetable oil. The
company operates through two main complementary business segments,
Oleochemicals and Specialty Derivatives, and produces more than
1,500 products for over 3,500 customers in 50 countries. Vantage's
revenue for the LTM ending June 30, 2017 was $544 million and
adjusted EBITDA was $90 million. In September 2017, H.I.G Capital
agreed to acquire the majority equity stake in Vantage from its
previous owner, the Jordan Company.

VERDUGO ENTERPRISES: Creditors Seek Ch. 11 Trustee Appointment
--------------------------------------------------------------
The petitioning creditors of Verdugo Enterprises, LLC, filed a
motion asking the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Arizona
to direct the appoint a Chapter 11 Trustee on an expedited basis.

The Petitioning Creditors believe that the current management of
Verdugo Enterprises, LLC, is engaging in dishonest acts, grossly
mismanaging the debtor, engaging in a Ponzi Scheme and/or
securities fraud, and flagrantly disregarding their fiduciary
duties to its creditors.

Three independent bases establish that cause exists to appoint a
trustee in this case on an expedited basis. First, the Debtor is a
melting ice cube. Absent quick action, it is likely that the assets
of the Debtor will either be dissipated or moved beyond this
judicial district by the Debtor's current management.

Second, the immediate appointment of a Trustee is warranted by
virtue of the dishonest acts and gross mismanagement of the Debtor
by its current management.

Third, Debtor's management is believed to continue to be in the
process of inducing other victims, to loan money to Verdugo through
loans which promise to pay extremely high interest rates (22%
compounded monthly), and which in fact, have paid practically
nothing, and which fail to adequately disclose the inherent risks
associated with such loans.

Absent the appointment of the Trustee, Petitioning Creditors and
other victims will continue to suffer substantial injury. Simply
put, without the appointment of the Trustee, the management will
have likely be deplete or secrete the Debtor’s assets, or move
them beyond the jurisdiction of this Court, leaving the Petitioning
Creditors and all other creditors with no remedy. Moreover, absent
the appointment of the Trustee, Debtor will likely continue to
solicit new loans from new victims.

Z ENTERPRISES: Seeks Authorization to Use JBC Cash Collateral
-------------------------------------------------------------
Z Enterprises of New York, LLC D/B/A Fun4All asks the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of New York to authorize
its use of certain cash on hand and accounts receivable generated
in the ordinary course of its business, with respect to which Port
Jefferson Business Center, Inc. asserts a security interest.

Jefferson Business asserted that it had a blanket lien on all of
the Debtor's assets. The current debt owed to Jefferson Business is
in the approximate sum of $111,000. Jefferson Business further
asserted that the Debtor was improperly using its cash collateral
without Jefferson Business' consent. Consequently, the Debtor was
wholly and completely prohibited from using any of its cash until
Jefferson Business provides its consent or an Order will be issued
by the Court authorizing Debtor's use of its cash.

The Debtor's counsel believes that Jefferson Business did not have
a blanket lien on the Debtor's assets, but only had a lien on the
Debtor's equipment. The Debtor's counsel also tried to reach out to
Jefferson Business to obtain its consent on the use of cash
collateral. However, Jefferson Business refused to allow the Debtor
to use any cash at all, hence the Debtor asks the Court to allow it
to use cash collateral in order to avoid a complete shut-down of
its business.

Particularly, the Debtor requires the use of cash collateral in
order to pay costs and expenses incurred in the ordinary course of
its ongoing business as provided for in the Budget, including
payroll and payroll related obligations. The Debtor asserts that
without the use of cash collateral, it will be unable to meet any
of its obligations set forth on the budget.

Accordingly, the Debtor has prepared a Budget which demonstrates
that from October 1, 2017 through November 30, 2017, the Debtor
anticipates that it will collect approximately $78,000 in cash.
During the same time, the Debtor anticipates total cash
disbursements of only $57,026.

While the Debtor believes that Jefferson Business' interest in the
cash collateral is substantially over-secured, the Debtor proposes
to provide additional protection to Jefferson Business in the form
of monthly payments in the sum of $2,000 per month.

Additionally, the Debtor proposes to grant Jefferson Business
replacement liens and security interests in the Debtor's accounts
receivable, goods, inventory, machinery, equipment, furniture,
tools, implements, general intangibles and contract rights acquired

ZONE 5 INC: Allowed to Use Berkshire Cash Collateral Until Oct. 11
------------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Robert E. Littlefield, Jr. of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the Northern District of New York authorized Zone 5 Inc., f/k/a
Zone V Lithographic Pre-press Inc. to use cash collateral through
and including Oct. 11, 2017 as set forth in the Budget.

The Budget for October 2017 provides total cash expenses in the
aggregate amount of $43,623.

The Debtor is required to pay adequate protection payment to
Berkshire Bank in the amount of $2,933 for the month of October
2017. The Debtor is also required (1) to provide Berkshire Bank
with an update account receivable listing as of October 1, 2017 and
(2) to file its June, July and August 2017 Operating Reports by
October 31, 2017.

Berkshire Bank is authorized to apply the proceeds of the Debtor's
prepetition bank account in the amount of $4,595, as well as the
proceeds of the sale of excess equipment and fixtures in the amount
of $13,123, to reduce the Debtor's prepetition obligation.
Consequently, Berkshire Bank is required to amend its Proof of
Claim to reflect these payments.

The Debtor's use of cash collateral and compliance with the terms
of the First Interim Order is continued for a further hearing which
will take place on Oct. 11, 2017.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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