531 MANAGEMENT: Exclusive Plan Filing Period Extended to Nov. 6
---------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. James L. Garrity, Jr., of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the Southern District of New York has extended, at the behest of
531 Management LLC, the exclusive period during which only the
Debtor may file a plan of reorganization until Nov. 6, 2017, and
the concomitant exclusive period during which only the Debtor may
solicit acceptances or rejections to the plan until Jan. 5, 2018.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on Aug. 14, 2017, the
Court previously extended for 60 days: (i) the exclusive period
during which only the Debtor may file a plan of reorganization is
hereby extended days to Sept. 5, 2017; and (ii) the concomitant
exclusive period during which only the Debtor may solicit
acceptances or rejections to such plan of reorganization to Nov. 6,
2017.
  
                   About 531 Management LLC

531 Management LLC is a real estate development and construction
company based in Bronx, New York.  The Debtor filed a Chapter 11
petition (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 17-10519) on March 6, 2017.

In its petition, the Debtor estimated $7.23 million in assets and
$6.87 million in liabilities.  The petition was signed by Maurice
Elmalem, managing member.

Judge James L. Garrity Jr. presides over the case. J. Ted Donovan,
Esq., at Goldberg Weprin Finkel Goldstein LLP, serves as bankruptcy
counsel.


7 BAY CORP: Files Fourth Amended Plan of Liquidation
----------------------------------------------------
7 Bay Corp. filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District
of Massachusetts a fourth amended disclosure statement in support
of its fourth amended plan of liquidation, dated Sept. 27, 2017.

This latest filing states that on or about August 31, 2017, the
Debtor paid the chapter 7 trustee $4,000 towards his approved costs
and fee incurred during the period the case was in chapter 7. The
Debtor currently owes the chapter 7 trustee approximately $5,900 in
outstanding costs and expenses.

Further, on March 15, 2013, the Debtor and Mina Kairalla secured a
loan of $300,000 by entering into a purchase and sale agreement for
one of the smaller 1800 sq foot units at the uncompleted project
that would close after 5 other units had sold if the loan had not
been repaid. In the event the loan was not repaid, the agreement
provided Kairalla the opportunity to select among the unfinished
1800 sq. foot units, and select materials, flooring, cabinets,
hardware, etc. and provide 50% costs for any upgrades. Together
with the adjustments and taxes and condominium fees due, the
parties would thereafter determine the "Balance due at closing."

Disagreements between the parties at the end of 2013 resulted in
the parties terminating the agreement and the debtor repaying
$100,000 of the $300,000 loan to Mina in January and February 2014.
Accordingly, it is the debtor's position that the agreement has
been terminated, is no longer enforceable, and that Mina holds an
unsecured claim in the amount of $200,000. Mr. Karialla's allowed
claim will be treated as a Class Six claim and will share,
pro-rata, in the distribution proposed in the Plan.

Mina has disputed the termination of the agreement and sought to
specifically enforce the Debtor's obligation to convey to him a
deed for one of the 1800 sq foot units.

available at:

                     About 7 Bay Corp

7 Bay Corp, based in Hull, Massachusetts, filed a Chapter 11
petition (Bankr. D. Mass. Case No. 15-14885) on Dec. 17, 2015.  The
petition was signed by Steven Buckley, president.  Judge Frank J.
Bailey presides over the case.  John M. McAuliffe, Esq., at
McAuliffe & Associates, P.C., serves as the Debtor's counsel.  At
the time of the filing, 7 Bay estimated $1 million to $10 million
in both assets and liabilities.


ACOSTA INC: Moody's Lowers Corporate Family Rating to Caa1
----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded its ratings for Acosta, Inc.
including its Corporate Family Rating ("CFR") to Caa1 from B3 and
its Probability of Default Rating ("PDR") to Caa1-PD from B3-PD. At
the same time, Moody's downgraded its ratings for the company's
senior secured bank credit facilities to B3 from B2 and its senior
unsecured notes rating to Caa3 from Caa2. The ratings outlook is
stable.

The downgrades reflect Acosta's continued decline in both revenue
and EBITDA which Moody's believes will continue through Acosta's
first fiscal quarter ended January 31, 2018. Moody's estimates that
the pace of Acosta's EBITDA decline will result in debt to EBITDA
reaching 9.4x at Acosta's fiscal year ended October 31, 2017.
Moody's expects that Acosta's EBITDA will likely reach bottom in
the first quarter of 2018 as it stands to gain new contracts
following being named one of only five sales and marketing
companies allowed to provide services in Wal-Mart stores as well as
a return to growth in its marketing services division. However,
Moody's does not expect the earnings growth in 2018 will be enough
to meaningfully reduce leverage to a more sustainable level. The
downgrade also reflects the decline in Acosta's free cash flow
generation such that Moody's expects free cash flow to fall below
$50 million, a level Moody's previously has cited as potentially
prompting a downgrade.

Downgrades:

Issuer: Acosta, Inc.

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

-- Corporate Family Rating, Downgraded to Caa1 from B3

-- Senior Secured Bank Credit Facility Downgraded to B3(LGD3)
    from B2(LGD3)

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

Outlook Actions:

Issuer: Acosta, Inc.

-- Outlook, Remains Stable

RATINGS RATIONALE

Acosta's Caa1 CFR reflects its very high debt burden and the
ensuing financial risk associated with its very levered balance
sheet particularly in the face of declining free cash flow. Moody's
expects debt to EBITDA to peak at 9.4x at October 31, 2017. Moody's
believes that Acosta's very levered balance sheet increases the
risk that Acosta could choose to do a distressed exchange or
balance sheet restructuring prior to refinancing its $225 million
revolving credit facility expiring in September 2019 should it be
unable to substantially reduce leverage and improve free cash flow.
The Caa1 also reflects ongoing industry headwinds and Acosta's
financial sponsor ownership, both of which contribute to the
aforementioned weak financial profile and key credit metrics.
Acosta's credit profile does continue to benefit from its ability
to cover its debt service costs with EBITA to interest expense
estimated to be 1.4 times at fiscal October 2017. The rating also
benefits from Acosta's good market position as the second largest
sales and marketing agency. Acosta has been named one of only five
sales and marketing agencies that are allowed to provide services
within Wal-Mart stores. This provides the company with an
opportunity to stem its pace of declines beginning in early
calendar 2018, prompting a gain in new contracts and a return to
growth in 2018.

The stable ratings outlook acknowledges that Acosta stands to gain
from being one of only five sales and marketing agencies that can
perform services in Wal-Mart stores which should allow it to return
to growth in 2018. It also reflects that Moody's expects Acosta to
continue to generate a modest level of free cash flow and to be
able to maintain EBITA to interest expense above 1.0x.

Acosta's ratings could be upgraded should revenue and EBITDA
improve such that debt to EBITDA is sustained below 8.0x, while
EBITA to interest expense remains above 1.5x, and FCF to debt
remains above 3.0%. An upgrade would also require Acosta to
maintain an adequate liquidity profile.

Ratings could be downgraded should Acosta's revenues and earnings
fail to improve in 2018, should FCF to debt fall below 1.0%, should
EBITA to interest expense fall below 1.0x, or should its overall
liquidity profile weaken. Ratings could also be downgrade should
the likelihood of default increase for any reason.

Headquartered in Jacksonville, FL, Acosta, Inc. is a leading sales
and marketing agency in the US, providing outsources marketing and
merchandising services to manufacturers, suppliers, and producers
of primarily food-related consumer packaged goods. Annual revenues
are close to $1.9 billion. Acosta is primarily owned by affiliates
of the Carlyle Group.

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

between $500,001 and $1 million.  Robert D. Wilcox, Esq., at Wilcox
Law Firm serves as the Debtor's bankruptcy counsel.


ALGODON WINES: Obtains $258,000 From Preferred Shares Issuance

ANDERSON SHUMAKER: May Use Cash Collateral Through Oct. 23
----------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Donald R. Cassling of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Northern District of Illinois has entered a seventh interim order
authorizing Anderson Shumaker Company to use cash collateral of
Associated Bank, N.A., for the period from the Petition Date
through the earliest to occur of: (i) 5:00 p.m. Central Time on
Oct. 23, 2017, and (ii) the termination date.

A hearing to consider the final order on the Debtor's cash
collateral use will be held on Oct. 24, 2017, at 10:00 a.m.

Associated Bank will receive: (i) adequate protection payments of
$38,000 in immediately available funds, on the 24th day of each
month; (ii) replacement lien in the prepetition collateral and in
the post-petition property of the Debtor of the same nature and to
the same extent and in the same priority it had in the prepetition
collateral, and to the extent the liens and security interests
extend to property; and (iii) an additional continuing valid,
binding, enforceable, non-avoidable, and automatically perfected
postpetition security interest in and lien on all cash or cash
equivalents, whether now owned or in existence on the Petition Date
or thereafter acquired or existing and wherever located, of the
Debtor.

Associated Bank will be deemed to have an allowed superpriority
adequate protection claim to the extent the adequate protection
lien is not adequate to protect the bank against the diminution in
value of the prepetition collateral.

A copy of the court order is available at:

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on Sept. 11, 2017, the

ANITA LAL: Selling 50% Interest in Demised Property or in 234 Auto
------------------------------------------------------------------
Anita Lal asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District
of Virginia to authorize the bidding procedures in connection with
the sale of her 50% interest in a lease for the commercial premises
located at 14843 Dumfries Road, Manassas, Virginia ("Demised
Premises") and the assets located upon the Demised Premises, or in
the alternative, her 50% membership interest in 234 Auto & Truck
Salvage Yard, LLC, at auction.

On Sept. 14, 2014, the Debtor and Ahmad entered into the Lease.
Around the time of the Lease, the Debtor and Ahmad formed the 234
Auto.  They are the sole members of the LLC, where each of them
holds a 50% membership interest.  The business of the LLC is to
purchase used and inoperable motor vehicles, to sell them for
parts, and after a vehicle's value for parts has been depleted, to
sell the remainder of such vehicle for scrap.  When a vehicle is to
be sold for scrap, it is crushed by the LLC as to maximize the
number of vehicles that can be transported on a flat bed truck.  It
conducts its business as a sub-tenant of the Debtor and Ahmad under
a parol lease.

The records of the State Corporation Commission ("SCC") reflect
that the LLC is active and in good standing.  At some point, Ahmad
filed papers with the SCC to reinstate the certificate of
organization for the LLC.  Ahmad did not have the authority to
reinstate the certificate of organization for the LLC.  The
certificate of organization for the LLC is invalid.

The Debtor desires to assume the Lease as its terms are below
market and thus, valuable.  She expects that there will be several
offers for the assignment of the Lease and for the remaining
Proposed Assets.  The Proposed Assets are sold free and clear of
liens, claims, rights, and interests.

Specifically excluded from the Proposed Assets will be all claims
of the Debtor against Ahmad and any person acting in concert with
her arising from or relating to any breach of fiduciary duty by
Ahmad and any conversion or missappropriation of the assets of the
LLC by Ahmad and any person acting in concert with her.
Additionally excluded from the Proposed Assets will be all proceeds
from the sale of vehicle parts or "crushed" vehicles sold before
entry of the Sale Order.

The Debtor is now asking the Court to approve assumption of the
Lease and the Interest, and then assign the Proposed Assets to the
highest bidder at an auction held by the Court.  

These are the names of the parties to the Lease and Contracts to be
assumed and assigned:

    a. 234 Auto & Truck Salvage Yard, LLC - Lease with Mitchell I.
Phelps, Inc., Anita Lal, and Adeela Ahmad

    b. 234 Auto & Truck Salvage Yard, LLC - Operating Agreement
with Anita Lal and Adeela Ahmad

    c. Ahmad, Adeela - Lease with Mitchell I. Phelps, Inc., Anita
Lal, and Adeela Ahmad

    d. Ahmad, Adeela - Operating Agreement with Anita Lal and
Adeela Ahmad

    e. Mitchell I. Phelps, Inc. - Lease with Mitchell I. Phelps,
Inc., Anita Lal, and Adeela Ahmad

The proceeds of the sale will be used to fund the Debtor's plan of
reorganization.  Owing to and in consideration of the fact that
Ahmad may be entitled to a share of the proceeds arising from any
Sale, the Debtor also asks that the Court determine the procedure
for a distribution of these proceeds.

The Debtor further asks that the Court orders that Ahmad vacate and
surrender possession of the Demised Premises in favor of any
purchaser within such time as the Court may deem appropriate, but
in no event later than entry of the Sale Order.  

The salient terms of the Bidding Procedures are:

     a. Bid Deadline: Not later than such date and time as is
specified in the Sales Procedures Order

     b. Qualified Bid: $500,000

     c. Deposit: $25,000

     d. Auction: The Auction will take place no later than such
date and time as is specified in the Sales Procedures Order, at
11350 Random Hills Rd., Suite 700, Fairfax, Virginia.

     e. Bid Increments: $25,000

     f. Sale Hearing: TBD

     h. Closing: The closing of the sale of the Assets to the
Prevailing Bidder will occur at the office of counsel for the
Debtor in accord with the Sales Procedures Order and the Sale
Order.

A copy of the Bidding Procedures and the Commercial Lease attached
to the Motion is available for free at:

             http://bankrupt.com/misc/Anita_Lal_80_Sales.pdf

The Debtor asks the Court to schedule a hearing date, a bidding
deadline and an auction date in connection with the Sale.  She
further asks the Court to conduct the Sale Hearing following the
auction process sought to be implemented to consider entry of an
order approving the Sale to the successful bidder.

AQUA LIFE CORP: Hurricane Irma Delays Plan Filing
-------------------------------------------------
Aqua Life Corp., d/b/a Pinch-A-Penny #43, requests the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Florida to extend the
exclusive periods within which only the Debtor may file a plan of
reorganization and solicit acceptances of the filed plan for a
period of 60 days, through and including January 5, 2018.

Under section 112l(e) of the Bankruptcy Code, the Debtor's current
Exclusive Periods will expire on November 6, 2017.

The Debtor operates a swimming pool retail, service, construction,
and repair business through the operation of a Pinch-A-Penny
franchise.

The Debtor tells the Court that its business operations were
disrupted due to the passage of Hurricane Irma through South
Florida in September 2017, which required the Debtor to prepare and
secure the premises of its retail business and the numerous
construction sites on which the Debtor was working at the time.

Moreover, as a result of the extensive time spent preparing for and
dealing with the effects of this natural disaster, the Debtor avers
that it has fallen behind on some of its administrative functions
as a Debtor-in-possession, including the preparation of certain
financial projections and the formulation of a disclosure statement
and plan of reorganization.

As such, due to the interruption of the Debtor's business by
Hurricane Irma, the Debtor now requires additional time to (a)
formulate financial projections, (b) secure and obtain approval of
post-petition financing arrangements that will permit the Debtor
successfully reorganize, and (c) afford the Debtor with sufficient
time to negotiate and prepare a plan of reorganization.

So far, the Debtor claims that it has made good faith progress
toward reorganization by, among other things, (a) analyzing all
claims asserted against the Debtor upon expiration of the claims
bar date, (b) commencing plan negotiations with certain creditors,
(c) providing plan projections and estimated claims and
distributions to certain creditors, and (d) considering options for
obtaining post-petition financing that will permit the Debtor to
fund distributions under the plan and successfully emerge from this

BC EXPRESS: Exclusive Period Expired in July, Court Says
--------------------------------------------------------
Judge James P. Smith of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Middle
District of Georgia denied BC Express Mart, LLC's amended motion to
extend the exclusive periods of time within which to file a plan of
reorganization and solicit acceptances because the 180-day
exclusive period has already expired on July 17, 2017.

The Court explained that pursuant to 11 U.S.C. Section 1121(e)(1),
a small business debtor has the exclusive right to file a plan
within the 180 days following the date of the order for relief,
unless the period is extended.

Alternatively, the Court denied the motion for lack of prosecution
because neither the Debtor nor its counsel, Joel A. Callins,
appeared during the hearing held on the motion on October 11,
2017.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on June 26, 2017, the
Debtor asked the Court to extend the exclusive period for the
Debtor to file a plan through and including July 18, 2017, and the
time for the Debtor to obtain acceptances of any plan through and
including September 15, 2017.

BLOUNT INT'L: Moody's Assigns 'B1' Corp. Family Rating
------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a B1 Corporate Family Rating and
B1-PD Probability of Default Rating to Blount International, Inc..
Moody's also assigned a B1 rating to the company's proposed $690
million Senior Secured First Lien Credit Facilities that are
comprised of a $75 million revolving credit facility due 2022 and
$615 million term loan due 2023. The rating outlook is stable.

The proceeds from the proposed $615 million term loan along will be
used to refinance ASP Blade Merger Sub, Inc.'s existing Sr. Secured
Credit Facilities, and pay a dividend to its owners - American
Securities and P2 Capital -- of $120 million. American Securities
and P2 Capital bought Blount in 2016.

The following ratings were assigned (all ratings are subject to
Moody's review of final documentation):

Corporate Family Rating, assigned B1;

Probability of Default Rating, assigned B1-PD;

$75 million Senior Secured Revolving Credit Facility due 2022,
assigned B1 (LGD3);

$615 million Senior Secured Term Loan due 2023, assigned B1
(LGD3);

Rating outlook, assigned stable.

RATINGS RATIONALE

The B1 Corporate Family Rating is supported by Blount's consistent
free cash flow generation, recurring nature of its revenues,
dominant global market share along with strong brand recognition,
wide array of products, attractive end markets, and long operating
history (founded in 1946). Globally, Blount manufactures and sells
over half of all saw chains and principally competes with only one
other manufacturer. Many of Blount's products such as saw chains
must be replaced multiple times in a year when used by
professionals, leading to recurring revenue stream. Furthermore,
the B1 Corporate Family Rating considers the company's relatively
strong projected interest coverage (adjusted by Moody's) of 2.2x
for 2017.

At the same time, the rating is constrained by the company's
relatively high pro forma debt leverage of 5.6x for the B1 rating
category. However, Blount is expected to apply its free cash flow
toward debt repayment and deleverage to below 4.6x within the next
12-18 months which will place the company comfortably within its
rating category. The rating is also constrained by the company's
exposure to volatile end markets, such as the agriculture industry
in the United States that is currently experiencing a downcycle.

The stable rating outlook reflects Moody's view that the company's
credit metrics will continue to improve over the next 12-18
months.

Positive rating action could be considered if the company's
adjusted debt to EBITDA declines below 4x on a sustained basis and
its adjusted EBITA coverage of interest increases above 3.5x on a
sustained basis while it maintains strong free cash flow generation
and a good liquidity profile.

Negative rating action could be considered if the company's
projected debt/EBITDA rises above 5.5x. In addition, dividend
distributions and other shareholder friendly activities,
deterioration in the company's liquidity profile, market share
loss, and debt financed acquisitions could place negative pressure
on the ratings.

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

Blount International, Inc. is headquartered in Portland, Oregon and
is a manufacturer of equipment and replacement parts for the
forestry and agriculture industries. Revenues for the LTM period
ended 6/30/17 were $762MM.


BLOUNT INT'L: S&P Lowers CCR to 'B' on Dividend Recapitalization
----------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings lowered its corporate credit rating on
U.S.-based Blount International Inc. to 'B' from 'B+'. The outlook
is stable.

Blount International Inc. is refinancing its capital structure,
which will include a proposed $75 million revolving credit facility
and $615 million term loan. In addition to refinancing debt, the
company plans to use the proceeds to pay a $120 million dividend to
shareholders affiliates of American Securities and P2 Capital
Partners and to pay transaction fees and expenses.

S&P said, "At the same time, we assigned our 'B' issue-level
rating, with a '3' recovery rating, to the company's proposed
revolving credit facility and term loan. Our '3' recovery rating
indicates our expectation for meaningful recovery (50%-70%; rounded
estimate: 50%) in the event of a payment default.

"The downgrade reflects the company's higher leverage following the
proposed dividend recapitalization. We believe the transaction
indicates a more aggressive financial policy by the company's
financial sponsors (specifically, a reduction in their commitment
to maintaining leverage below 5x). Therefore, we are revising our
financial policy assessment to incorporate the financial sponsors'
tolerance for incremental leverage and the associated increased
risk. We expect the transaction will weaken the company's debt to
EBITDA to the mid-5x area (from the mid-4x area as of June 30,
2017) following transaction close, and estimate Blount will
deleverage to the low-5x area over the next 12 months.

"The stable outlook on Blount reflects our expectation that the
company will maintain leverage between 5x and 6x over the next 12
months. These credit measures are supported by our expectation for
modest revenue growth and a moderate improvement in the company's
profitability from management's operational cost improvements.

"We could lower our rating on Blount by one notch if the company's
operating performance declined due to lower demand for the
company's products such that it increased adjusted debt to EBITDA
to more than 6.5x and we expected it to remain there. We could also
lower our rating if the company pursued debt-financed acquisitions
or additional shareholder returns that increased its leverage above
6.5x on a sustained basis.

"Although unlikely over the next 12 months, we could raise our
rating on Blount by one notch if we expected that Blount's total
debt to EBITDA would be below 5x on a sustained basis and believed
that the company was committed to maintaining financial policies
(particularly around future shareholder returns and acquisitions)
that would support this level of leverage."


BOXWOOD LLC: U.S. Trustee Unable to Appoint Committee
-----------------------------------------------------
The Office of the U.S. Trustee on Oct. 9 disclosed in a court
filing that no official committee of unsecured creditors has been
appointed in the Chapter 11 case of Boxwood, LLC.

                     About Boxwood LLC

Founded in 2002, Boxwood, LLC, owns an event facility consisting of
50 acres with cabin, house and carriage house located at 132

CATALENT PHARMA: Moody's Rates New $450MM Sr. Unsecured Notes 'B3'
------------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a B3 rating to Catalent Pharma
Solutions, Inc.'s new senior unsecured notes. There is no change to
the B1 Corporate Family Rating (CFR), B1-PD Probability of Default
Rating (PDR), Ba3 senior secured credit facility ratings, or B3
rating on the existing senior unsecured notes. The Speculative
Grade Liquidity Rating of SGL-1 also remains unchanged. The outlook
is stable.

The $450 million of new senior unsecured notes will help fund the
pending acquisition of Cook Pharmica, Catalent's largest
acquisition to date.

Assuming that Catalent uses debt to fund the $200 million deferred
portion of the purchase price, Moody's expects pro forma adjusted
debt/EBITDA of 5.6 times, up from 4.9 times as of June 30, 2017.
However, Moody's believes the company will be able to return
leverage to about 5.0 times by the end of 2018 through EBITDA
growth. Moody's estimates that the Cook acquisition will accelerate
Catalent's annual EBITDA growth by 200-300 basis points.

Ratings assigned:

Catalent Pharma Solutions, Inc.

Senior unsecured notes due 2025 at B3 (LGD 5)

Ratings unchanged:

Catalent Pharma Solutions, Inc.

Corporate Family Rating at B1

Probability of Default Rating at B1-PD

Senior secured revolving credit facility expiring 2022 at Ba3 (LGD
3)

Senior secured term loans due 2024 at Ba3 (LGD 3)

Senior unsecured notes due 2024 at B3 (LGD adjusted to LGD 5 from
LGD 6)

Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating at SGL-1

Ratings unchanged that Moody's expects to withdraw upon close:

Catalent Pharma Solutions, Inc.

Senior secured revolving credit facility expiring 2019 at Ba3 (LGD
3)

Senior secured term loans due 2021 at Ba3 (LGD 3)

The outlook is stable.

RATINGS RATIONALE

Catalent's B1 rating is constrained by its relatively high
financial leverage and modest free cash flow. The rating is also
constrained by volatility inherent in the pharmaceutical contract
manufacturing industry. Lost revenue when customers' drugs become
generic, pricing pressure exerted by large clients, and high fixed
costs can create volatility in net profit and cash flows. The
rating is supported by Moody's expectation that Catalent will
benefit over the next 2-3 years as more drugs coming to market
require more complex dosage solutions. In addition, Moody's
acknowledges Catalent's push into more stable, albeit lower margin,
businesses such as consumer and animal health. The rating is also
supported by Catalent's good scale and leading market position in
the development and manufacturing of softgels and other oral drug
delivery technologies. The company also maintains a diversified
customer base and commands a large library of patents, know-how,
and other intellectual property that raise barriers to entry and
enhance margins. These factors help mitigate the volatility created
by the inherent industry challenges discussed above.

The stable rating outlook reflects Moody's expectation that
leverage will show moderate improvement over the next 12-18 months
as previously soft businesses, such as modified release
technologies and pre-filled syringes, stabilize and begin to grow
again. In addition, Moody's expects new product lines, such as
animal health and biologics, to help Catalent's growth.

The Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating of SGL-1 reflects Moody's
expectation that Catalent's liquidity will remain very good over
the next 12 to 18 months. Catalent's liquidity will be supported by
free cash flow in excess of $150 million over the next year, a
strong cash balance ($288 million as of June 30, 2017), and $188
million of availability under its $200 million revolver.

The ratings could be upgraded if Catalent reduces financial
leverage such that its debt to EBITDA approaches 4.0 times.
Successful integration of acquisitions and organic growth that
results in increased scale and improved business line diversity,
including reduced concentration in softgels, would also support an
upgrade.

The ratings could be downgraded if Moody's expects Catalent's
financial leverage to be sustained above 5.5 times. The ratings
could also be downgraded if Catalent's earnings deteriorate or if
the company adopts a more aggressive acquisition strategy.

Catalent Pharma Solutions, Inc., based in Somerset, New Jersey, is
a leading provider of development solutions and advanced delivery
technologies for drugs, biologics and consumer health products.
These include the company's formulation, development and
manufacturing of softgels and other products for the prescription,
consumer, and animal health industries. The company reported
revenue of approximately $2.1 billion for the twelve months ended
June 30, 2017.

The principal methodology used in this rating was Business and
Consumer Service Industry published in October 2016.


CATALENT PHARMA: S&P Rates New $450MM Unsecured Notes 'B+'
----------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings lowered its issue-level rating on Catalent
Inc.'s senior unsecured debt to 'B+' from 'BB-' and revised the
recovery rating to '5' from '4' following the company's
announcement that it will issue new debt at this level of the
capital structure. The '5' recovery rating indicates S&P's
expectation for modest (10%-30%; rounded estimate: 25%) recovery in
the event of a payment default.

S&P said, "At the same time, we assigned our 'B+' issue-level
rating and '5' recovery rating (the same as the company's existing
unsecured debt) to the new $450 million senior unsecured notes due
2026 issued by operating subsidiary Catalent Pharma Solutions Inc.
The '5' recovery rating indicates our expectation for modest
(10%-30%; rounded estimate: 25%) recovery in the event of a payment
default.

"Our corporate credit rating on Catalent Inc. remains 'BB-' with a
stable outlook. See the research update on Catalent Inc. published
Sept. 20, 2017, for our view of the acquisition and the corporate
credit rating."

The lower expectations for recovery for the senior unsecured debt
reflects the higher proportion of unsecured debt in the capital
structure following the financing and the fact that all of Cook
Pharmica's value is derived from domestic subsidiaries that will
guarantee the company's secured debt, leaving relatively limited
incremental value for unsecured creditor in a default scenario.

RECOVERY ANALYSIS

Key analytical factors:

-- S&P is updating its recovery analysis in conjunction with
Catalent's financing package for its acquisition of Cook Pharmica.

-- Catalent's proposed capital structure consists of a $200
million revolving credit facility (assumed 85% drawn), a $1.46
billion first-lien dollar term loan, a $315 million first-lien euro
term loan, $400 million of unsecured euro notes, and $450 million
of new unsecured dollar notes.

-- S&P's simulated default scenario contemplates a default in
2021, precipitated by regulatory suspensions, increased
competition, and lower capacity utilization.

-- S&P believes Catalent would reorganize in the event of default
in view of its strong customer relationships and the importance of
its products to its customers' supply chains. Further, we believe
that lenders would achieve greater recovery through reorganization,
rather than liquidation.

--  S&P has valued the company on a going-concern basis using a 6x
multiple of our projected emergence EBITDA. The 6x multiple
reflects Catalent's strong contracts and customer relationships,
but the multiple is limited because its intangible assets are not
as strong as biopharmaceutical molecule patents.

-- S&P's emergence EBITDA of $294 million is somewhat higher than
a fixed-charge proxy because we believe the company will default as
total leverage reaches approximately 8.5x and EBITDA declines about
40% from 2017 estimates.

-- The senior secured credit facilities benefit from a downstream
guarantee from Catalent's holding company parent, an upstream
guarantee from the company's wholly owned U.S. restricted
subsidiaries, and a pledge of 65% of Catalent's equity interests in
its foreign subsidiaries. Catalent's U.S. operations, which provide
a secured guarantee of the facilities, contribute approximately 45%
of EBITDA. Foreign operations, which are nonguarantors, contribute
the remaining 55% of EBITDA. This overseas value provides some
recovery to unsecured creditors in the event of payment default.

Simulated default assumptions:

-- Simulated year of default: 2021
-- EBITDA at emergence: $294 mil.
-- EBITDA multiple: 6x
-- Gross enterprise value at emergence: $1,761 mil.

Simplified waterfall:

-- Net enterprise value (after 5% admin. costs): $1,673 mil.
-- Valuation split in % (obligors/nonobligors): 45/55
-- Collateral value from obligors: $753 mil.
-- Collateral value from nonobligors (65% pledge): $598 mil.
-- Unpledged value available to first-lien creditors: $79 mil.
-- Total value available to first-lien creditors: $1,430 mil.
-- Secured first-lien debt claims: $1,621 mil.
    ???Recovery expectations: 70%-90%; rounded estimate: 85%
-- Total value available to unsecured claims: $322 mil.
-- Senior unsecured debt claims: $831 mil.
-- Other pari passu unsecured claims: $271 mil.
-- Total unsecured claims: $1,102 mil.
    ???Recovery expectations: 10%-30%; rounded estimate: 25%

Note: All debt amounts include six months of prepetition interest.
Collateral value equals asset pledge from obligors after priority
claims plus equity pledge from nonobligors after nonobligor debt.

CCO HOLDINGS: Moody's Rates Proposed $1.5BB Sr. Unsecured Notes B1
------------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a B1 rating to the proposed $1.5
billion senior unsecured notes of CCO Holdings, LLC, a wholly-owned
subsidiary of Charter Communications, Inc. (Charter). The total
issuance will be split between a new issuance with an expected
maturity of 2023 and an add-on to the company's existing 5% notes
due 2028, with proceeds from the issuance being used for general
corporate purposes, including repurchasing shares. Pro forma
leverage is 4.7x (including Moody's adjustments), although Moody's
expects leverage to fall below 4.5x by the end of 2017. Charter's
Ba2 CFR and stable outlook remain unchanged.

A summary of action follows:

Assignments:

Issuer: CCO Holdings, LLC

-- Senior Unsecured Regular Bond/Debenture, Assigned B1 (LGD 5)

RATINGS RATIONALE

Charter's Ba2 corporate family rating (CFR) is supported the
company's large scale and moderate leverage. Following the
acquisitions of Time Warner Cable (TWC) and BrightHouse Networks
(BHN) in May 2016, Charter became the second largest cable operator
in the US after Comcast (A3, Stable) and third largest pay-TV
provider after DIRECTV (unrated) and Comcast. Pro forma for this
new debt issuance, leverage for the last twelve months ended
6/30/2017 was 4.7x (including Moody's adjustments), which in
addition to its solid free cash flow supports the company's Ba2
CFR. Charter has leading broadband infrastructure and a growing
commercial segment. Moody's anticipates Charter will grow EBITDA in
the mid-single digit range over the next 12 months and continue to
grow free cash flow. Charter's financial policy remains a key
driver of the rating as management has stated that it would like to
keep net debt-to-EBITDA in the 4.0-4.5x range (before Moody's
adjustments).

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

Moody's would consider an upgrade of the ratings with continued
improvements in both financial and operating metrics and a
commitment to a better credit profile. Specifically, Moody's could
upgrade the CFR based on expectations for sustained leverage below
4.0x debt-to-EBITDA and free cash flow-to-debt in excess of 5%,
along with maintenance of good liquidity.

A higher rating would require commitment to the stronger credit
metrics, as well as product penetration levels more in line with
industry peers, and growth in revenue and EBITDA per homes passed.
Moody's would likely downgrade ratings if another sizeable debt
funded acquisition, ongoing basic subscriber losses, declining
penetration rates, and/or a reversion to more aggressive financial
policies contributed to expectations for sustained leverage above
4.5x debt-to-EBITDA (including Moody's standard adjustments) or
sustained low single digit or worse free cash flow-to-debt.

One of the largest US domestic cable multiple system operators
serving about 26.8 million customers, 23.3 million broadband
subscribers, 17.1 million video subscribers and 11.2 million voice
subscribers, Charter Communications, Inc. maintains its
headquarters in Stamford, Connecticut. Total revenue for the last
twelve months ended 6/30/2017 was approximately $41 billion.

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


CCO HOLDINGS: S&P Rates New $1.5BB Unsecured Notes 'BB'
-------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings assigned its 'BB' issue-level rating and '5'
recovery rating to Stamford, Conn.-based cable operator CCO
Holdings LLC's and CCO Holdings Capital Corp.'s proposed $1.5
billion unsecured notes, which will be split between new notes due
2023 and an add-on to the existing 5.0% notes due 2028. The '5'
recovery rating reflects S&P's expectation for modest (10%-30%;
rounded estimate: 25%) recovery in a simulated default scenario.

The company intends to use the proceeds from the new secured notes
for general corporate purposes, which could include share
repurchases. The 'BB+' corporate credit rating on Charter
Communications Inc. remains unchanged, as S&P continues to expect
leverage to remain between 4.0x and 4.5x for the foreseeable
future.

RECOVERY ANALYSIS

Key analytical factors

S&P said, "Our simulated default scenario contemplates lower
revenue due to an acceleration of video subscriber declines and an
inability to offset video declines with broadband growth due to
heightened competition. Other default assumptions include: the
revolver is 85% drawn, LIBOR rises to 2.5%, the spread on the
credit facilities rises to 5% as covenant amendments are obtained
as credit deteriorates, and all debt includes six months of
prepetition interest.

"We value Charter at a 7x multiple of emergence EBITDA, which is at
the high end of the 5x-7x range we use for pay-TV providers given
its incumbent market positions, programming synergies enabled by
its scale, and its geographic diversification."

Simulated default assumptions

-- Simulated year of default: 2022
-- EBITDA at emergence: $8.5 billion
-- EBITDA multiple: 7x

Simplified waterfall

-- Net enterprise value (after 5% administrative costs): $57
billion
-- Value available to secured debt claims: $57 billion
-- Secured debt claims: $51.3 billion
    --Recovery expectations: 90% to 100% (rounded estimate: 95%)

CGG HOLDING: Ordered to Improve Transparency of Pay to Top Execs
----------------------------------------------------------------
Tom Corrigan, writing for The Wall Street Journal Pro Bankruptcy,
reported that U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Martin Glenn in New York
approved a bankruptcy-exit plan proposed by CGG Group, a French
oil-services company, and required the company to improve the
transparency of its executive compensation.

According to the report, following a hearing on October 10, Judge
Glenn signed off on the plan, part of a multinational restructuring
that aims to shave about $2 billion in debt from the company's
books.  However, a fight over the CGG's transparency and disclosure
practices -- fundamental components of the bankruptcy system that
are required by law -- took up much of an otherwise routine
hearing, the report related.

The U.S. trustee, a Justice Department official who serves as a
bankruptcy watchdog, lodged a last-minute objection to CGG's
bankruptcy plan, demanding more information about the identities
and compensation of top executives and others who will stay with
the company when it eventually emerges from chapter 11 protection,
the report further related.

Judge Glenn largely agreed, the report said.  During the Oct. 10
hearing, he criticized the company's disclosures, likening the
information supplied in a complex web of earlier public documents
to a "Where's Waldo" search, the report added.

The judge ruled that all officers and directors of CGG's U.S.
affiliates must be named and that CGG must also provide a range or

FAIRMOUNT SANTROL: Moody's Hikes CFR to B3; Outlook Stable
----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service upgraded Fairmount Santrol, Inc.'s
(Fairmount) Corporate Family Rating (CFR) to B3 from Caa1 and the
Probability of Default Rating to B3-PD from Caa2-PD. At the same
time, Moody's assigned a B3 rating to Fairmount's proposed $700
million Senior Secured Term Loan B due 2024. The Speculative Grade
Liquidity Rating was upgraded to SGL-2. The outlook was changed to
stable from positive.

The following actions were taken:

Corporate Family Rating, upgraded to B3 from Caa1;

Probability of Default Rating, upgraded to B3-PD from Caa2-PD;

Senior Secured Term Loan B due 2024, assigned at B3 (LGD4)

Senior secured bank credit facilities, unchanged, to be withdrawn
upon close of Senior Secured Term Loan B due 2024;

Speculative Grade Liquidity, upgraded to SGL-2 from SGL-3;

The outlook was changed to stable, from positive.

RATINGS RATIONALE

The ratings upgrade reflects improvement in key credit metrics and
Moody's expectations that industry conditions will continue improve
in 2018 on the strength of frac-sand demand and increasing volumes.
Adjusted operating margin improved to 2.7% for the 12 months ended
June 30, 2017 from -10.9% for the year ended 2016. Adjusted EBIT to
interest expense improved to 0.2x from -0.7x and adjusted
debt-to-EBITDA to 7.0x from 16.0x over the same period. Moody's
expects adjusted operating margin to increase above 13%, adjusted
EBIT to interest expense to increase to approximately 1.8x and
adjusted debt-to-EBITDA to decline to approximately 4.0x by year
end 2017. The Probability of Default Rating was upgraded two
notches, on par with the CFR, to reflect the changing priority of
claims in the company's new debt capital structure.

Fairmount's B3 CFR is supported by a strong market position in the
frac-sand industry, high barriers to entry for competitors, a
large, developed logistical network, large base of proven mineral
reserves, strategically located mines and production facilities and
long-standing customer relationships. The company's liquidity
profile is improved by its new $125 million ABL revolver and the
refinancing of its term loan B which extends debt maturities out to
2022 and 2024, respectively. Liquidity is also supported by Moody's
expectations the company will generate free cash flow at a level
that will support growth initiatives.

Fairmount's credit profile is constrained by its modest scale,
acquisitive history, limited product diversification, exposure to
the oil and gas commodity price cycles, and the reliance on the
hydraulic fracturing industry for the majority of its revenue and
operating income. Importantly, the CFR incorporates the volatility
in operating performance associated with the company's key oil and
gas end markets which experienced prolonged and material weakness
in 2015 and 2016. Fairmount's adjusted operating margin was
negative in each quarter during 2016, but turned positive again by
1Q17 as energy markets recovered. Adjusted debt-to-EBITDA also
climbed above 10.0x for multiple quarters during the stressed
period, but has been improving since 3Q16. Pro forma for the
proposed debt refinancing, adjusted debt-to-EBITDA is approximately
6.7x for the LTM ending June 30, 2017. Moody's expects key credit
metrics will continue to improve on the strength of frac-sand
demand, increasing volumes, stable-to-improving prices, and
stabilized end market conditions.

Fairmount's SGL-2 Speculative Grade Liquidity rating reflects
Moody's views that the company will have good liquidity over the
next 12 months. Fairmount's liquidity is supported by $179 million
of cash on hand as of June 30, 2017 and its new $125 million ABL
Revolver due October 2022. The company will draw $50 million on its
ABL Revolver, but Moody's expects the company to have adequate cash
flow to pay down the Revolver in 2018. The ABL Revolver is governed
by a springing fixed charge covenant ratio of 1.1x when excess
availability is less than the greater of (i) 12.5% availability or
(ii) $10 million.

The company's alternate sources of liquidity are limited since
almost all of its assets are encumbered by senior secured credit
facilities. Fairmount has no material debt maturing prior to
October 2022 when its ABL Revolver matures.

Fairmount generated approximately $107 million of adjusted
operating cash flow and $38 million of adjusted free cash flow for
the 12 months ended June 30, 2017. The company used approximately
$69 million for capital expenditures over the same period. Moody's
expects operating and free cash flow to improve through 2018 as
proppant fundamentals continue to improve, and the company to use
cash on hand and operating cash flow to fund the development of its
Kermit facility.

The stable outlook reflects Moody's expectations that adjusted
operating income and key credit metrics will improve from higher
volumes and stable pricing driven by favorable supply/demand
dynamics. The stable outlook also assumes that Fairmount will
maintain ample liquidity as it funds its growth initiatives.

Moody's indicated that the ratings could be upgraded if adjusted
debt-to-book capitalization declined closer to 65%, adjusted
operating margin increased above 20%, and adjusted EBIT to interest
expense was sustained above 2.0x. Additionally, an upgrade would
also require solid liquidity and healthy end market dynamics.

The ratings could be downgraded if the company fails to increase
and maintain EBIT to interest comfortably above 1.0x, adjusted
operating margin deteriorates, and adjusted debt to book
capitalization is sustained above 80%. A ratings downgrade could
also result from a material deterioration in liquidity, any large
debt-funded acquisitions, or any transaction that would weaken the
company's financial flexibility.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Building
Materials Industry published in January 2017.

Fairmount Santrol, Inc., headquartered in Chesterland, OH, is a
producer of sand-based products organized into two segments:
Proppant Solutions and Industrial & Recreational (I&R) Products.
The Proppants Solutions segment provides sand-based proppants for
use in hydraulic fracturing operations. The I&R segment provides
raw, coated and custom blended sands to the foundry, building
products, glass, turf and landscape, and filtration industries. The
Proppant Solutions segment accounts for approximately 78% of total
revenue. As of August 2017, Fairmount has 10 sand processing
facilities (9 of which are active) with 16.9 million tons of annual
capacity , 9 coating facilities with 2.3 million tons of annual
coating capacity (5 of which are active) and 41 proppant
distribution terminals. Four production facilities and ten in-basin
terminals have unit train capabilities. The company generated
approximately $681 million of revenue during the twelve months
ended June 30, 2017.


FAIRMOUNT SANTROL: S&P Rates New $700MM Sr. Sec. Term Loan B 'B-'
-----------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings assigned its 'B-' issue-level rating to
Chesterland, Ohio-based sand producer Fairmount Santrol Inc.'s
proposed $700 million seven-year senior secured term loan B. The
recovery rating on the term loan is '3', indicating S&P's
expectation for meaningful (50%-70%; rounded estimate: 60%)
recovery in the event of a payment default. The company is also
signing a new $125 million five-year asset-based lending (ABL)
revolving facility agreement (unrated).

S&P views the proposed transaction as credit neutral. The company
will use the proceeds of the new term loan, alongside $50 million
drawn down under the ABL facility, toward paying down its existing
term loans.

S&P's 'B-' corporate credit rating is unchanged. The outlook is
stable.

RECOVERY ANALYSIS

Key analytical factors

-- S&P's recovery analysis assumes a capital structure that
includes a $125 million ABL revolving credit facility due 2022 (not
rated), the proposed $700 million senior secured term loan B due
2024, and $10 million Wisconsin Industrial Revenue Bond (not
rated).

-- S&P' recovery analysis assumes that 60% of the company's ABL
facility would be drawn at default.

-- S&P's simulated default scenario contemplates a default
occurring in 2019, in the wake of a protracted deterioration in oil
and gas exploration and drilling activity, leading to material
shrinkage in demand for hydraulic fracturing sand and depressed
prices. Given this scenario, margins would shrink and the company
would have to fund debt service and other obligations with
available cash and, to the extent available, ABL facility
borrowings.

-- S&P estimates a gross recovery value of approximately $555
million, assuming an emergence EBITDA of $111 million and an EBITDA
multiple of 5x, which is in line with other companies in the metals
and mining upstream sector.

-- S&P assigned a recovery rating of '3' to the proposed senior
secured term loan B, reflecting S&P's expectation of meaningful
(50%-70%; rounded estimate: 60%) recovery prospects in the event of
a payment default.

Simulated default and valuation assumptions

-- Simulated year of default: 2019
-- EBITDA at emergence*: $111 mil.
-- Implied enterprise value multiple: 5x
-- Gross enterprise value: $555 mil.

Simplified waterfall

-- Net enterprise value (after 5% administrative costs): $527
mil.
-- Estimated priority claims (ABL facility): $76 mil.
-- Total collateral value available for senior secured claims:
$451 mil.
    --------------------------
-- Estimated senior secured claims: $729 bil.
-- Senior secured debt recovery rating: 50%-70% (rounded estimate:
60%)
-- Senior secured debt rating: 'B-'

* Calculation of EBITDA at emergence: $111 million (assumed
amortization and interest due in default year: $66 million; minimum
capital expenditure assumption: $18 million; cyclicality
adjustment: $13 million; operational adjustment: $14 million).

Note: Estimated claim amounts include about six months' accrued but
unpaid
interest.

continue to supply and service our customer needs in the high
performance RADAR filter marketplace as they continue to upgrade
their aircraft.  As the sole source supplier of certain components
within the high performance RADAR arena, we expect to continue our
recent progress, addressing a market exceeding $30 million over the
next few years."

The Company is also providing guidance on the second quarter of
fiscal 2018, which ended on Sept. 30, 2017.  Net sales for the
second quarter are expected to be in the range of $2.0 million to
$2.2 million, compared to the $2.0 million reported in the first
quarter of fiscal 2018 and $4.4 million reported in the second
quarter of fiscal 2017.  The foregoing guidance is based on
management's current review of operations for the second quarter of
FY 2018, and remain subject to change based on actual results, and
subject to review by the Company's independent accountants.

Suresh Nair, the Company's Co-CEO stated, "We continued to
experience delays in receiving certain expected orders for our
Real-Time Threat Emulation Systems during the second quarter and
the first half of fiscal 2018 which we believe are due in part to
the complexity of closing high value capital equipment orders.  As
a result, we expect revenue for the second quarter to be flat
relative to Q1 of the current fiscal year and considerably lower as
compared to the same quarter in fiscal 2017.  These anticipated
orders are now expected to be received during the third and fourth
quarters of fiscal 2018.  In spite of these delays, we are pleased
with the receipt of the $4.9M order for RADAR filters and are
gratified that our customer continues to trust and select us to
provide their RADAR filters."

Giga-tronics will issue a more complete second quarter of fiscal
2018 earnings release and host a conference call the week of
Nov. 5, 2017.

                      About Giga-tronics

Headquartered in Dublin, California, Giga-tronics Incorporated
(NASDAG:GIGA) produces electronic warfare instruments used in the
defense industry and YIG RADAR filters used in fighter jet
aircraft.  It designs, manufactures and markets the new Advanced
Signal Generator (ASG) for the electronic warfare market, and
switching systems that are used in automatic testing systems
primarily in aerospace, defense and telecommunications.

Giga-tronics reported a net loss of $1.54 million on $16.26 million
of net sales for the year ended March 25, 2017, compared to a net
loss of $4.10 million on $14.59 million of net sales for the year
ended March 26, 2016.  As of June 24, 2017, Giga-tronics had $9.06
million in total assets, $8.39 million in total liabilities and
$668,000 in total shareholders' equity.

The Company incurred net losses of $1.3 million and $102,000 in the
first quarter of fiscal 2018 and fiscal 2017, respectively.  These
losses have contributed to an accumulated deficit of $26.8 million
as of June 24, 2017.  The Company used cash flow in operations
totaling $1.1 million and $589,000 in the first quarter of fiscal
2018 and 2017, respectively.

The Company has experienced delays in the development of features,
receipt of orders, and shipments for the new Advanced Signal
Generator.  These delays have contributed, in part to a decrease in
working capital.  The new ASG product has shipped to several
customers, but potential delays in the development of features,
longer than anticipated sales cycles, or uncertainty as to the
Company's ability to efficiently manufacture the ASG, could
significantly contribute to additional future losses and decreases
in working capital.

To help fund operations, the Company relies on advances under the
line of credit with Bridge Bank which expires on May 6, 2019.  The
agreement includes a subjective acceleration clause, which allows
for amounts due under the facility to become immediately due in the
event of a material adverse change in the Company's business
condition (financial or otherwise), operations, properties or
prospects, or ability to repay the credit based on the lender's
judgement.  As of June 24, 2017, the line of credit had a balance
of $582,000.

The Company said these matters raise substantial doubt as to its
ability to continue as a going concern.


GLOBAL UNIVERSAL: $20.5M Private Sale of Property Approved
----------------------------------------------------------
Judge Nancy Hershey Lord of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Eastern District of New York authorized Global Universal Group,
Ltd.'s private sale of its commercial property located at 34-20
Linden Place, Flushing, New York, also known as 33-37 Farrington
Street, Flushing, New York, and known on the Queens County Tax Map
as Block 4950, Lot 18, to Linden Center, LLC for $20,500,000.

The sale is free and clear of all liens, claims and encumbrances,
with such liens, claims and encumbrances to attach to the sale
proceeds.

Pursuant to the confirmed Plan and 11 U.S.C. Section 365(d)(1) and
(4)(A) and as part of the sale, the Debtor is authorized to assume
and assign the following commercial leases to the Purchaser and
will deliver reasonably required letters/representations from
Tenants as to there being no cure amounts or claims of the Tenants
against Landlord under the Leases as of the Closing Date: (i) lease
by and between Debtor and Bao Kang Adult Day Care Center, Inc.
dated Oct. 16, 2014 for a 10-year term; and (ii) lease by and
between the Debtor and ZhiQing Social Day Care Inc. / XuanDi
(Wendy) Huang dated April 2017 for a term of 10 years.

The sale and transfer of the Property to the Purchaser pursuant to
the confirmed Plan and the Agreement, and its assumption and
assignment of the Leases, will be exempt from any applicable stamp
tax pursuant to 11 U.S.C. Section 1146(a).

The Debtor is authorized and directed to pay at the closing from
the proceeds of sale of the Property any and all taxes, tax liens,
operational expenses including but not limited to government
charges, water, sewer and electric charges incurred through the
date of closing at the closing without further order of the Court.

The proceeds arising from the sale of the Property to the Purchaser
and received by the Debtor under the Agreement will be disbursed at
closing to all allowed claims pursuant to the confirmed Plan, as
set forth and pursuant to any further Order of a court of competent
jurisdiction and the Debtor may pay any necessary standard costs of
closing therefrom, and the balance of the sale proceeds will be
deposited into the Debtor's account to be distributed in accordance
with its Plan, as set forth or until further Order of the Court.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, provided that the Debtor: (a)
satisfies all Allowed Claims, including Administration Claims of
Court retained professionals on account of fees and expenses
approved by the Court ("Allowed Professional Fees"), and (b)
reserves no more than: (i) $3,000,000 ("Farrington Disputed Claim
Reserve"), on account of the Debtor's claims and objection(s) to
claim against Farrington, et al., as set forth in the Adversary
Complaint it filed, as may be amended or modified, in the Adversary
Proceeding entitled Global Universal Group, Ltd. v. Farrington, et
al., Adv. Pro. No. 17-01096-nh; plus (ii) interest equal to one
year of interest on the principal in the Farrington Disputed Claim
Reserve at the rate of 18% per annum of the Disputed Claims Reserve
("Initial Interest Reserve"), the Debtor may use the remainder of
the sale proceeds to exercise its rights under the Agreement to
purchase a 20% interest in Linden Center at closing or for any
other lawful use consistent with the Plan and the Order confirming
the Plan.

Notwithstanding the foregoing, in the event aggregate legal fees
sought by Farrington in its claim as of the date of entry of the
Confirmation Order are greater than $400,000, then the Debtor will
be entitled to add any amount over $400,000 in legal fees sought by
Farrington to the Farrington Disputed Claim Reserve.  The
Farrington Disputed Claim Reserve is without prejudice to the
rights, claims and defenses of the parties in the Farrington
Adversary Proceeding.

If the Farrington Adversary Proceeding is not dismissed, settled or
adjudicated within one year of the establishment of the Farrington
Disputed Claim Reserve, the Debtor will cause to be deposited in
the Farrington Disputed Claim Reserve, within five business days of
the one year anniversary of the Farrington Disputed Claim Reserve
("Additional Reserve Interest Due Date") an additional one year of
interest, calculated at the per annum rate of 18% ("Additional
Reserve Interest"), on account of all principal amounts remaining
in the Farrington Disputed Claim Reserve (i.e., excluding interest
on the Initial Interest Reserve).

If the Debtor fails to deposit all or any portion of the Additional
Reserve Interest on or before the Additional Reserve Interest Due
Date, then the Debtor will release to Farrington, within 10
business days of the Additional Reserve Interest Due Date, that
portion of the principal in the Farrington Disputed Claim Reserve
as to which the Additional Reserve Interest applies.  For the
avoidance of doubt, the Initial Reserve Interest will remain in the
Farrington Disputed Claim Reserve pending the final outcome on the
merits of the Farrington Adversary Proceeding.

On the Effective Date, the Debtor will pay Farrington that portion
of Farrington's Class 1 secured claim, as of the Effective Date,
minus the Farrington Disputed Claim Reserve.  The payment of a
portion of the Farrington Class I secured claim is without
prejudice to the Debtor's claims in the Adversary Proceeding
including the objection(s) to the Farrington Class I secured
claim.

Provided that the Farrington Claim is treated as set forth, then
Farrington will deliver the satisfaction of its lien(s) at closing
with the unsatisfied portion of said liens/claims to attach to the
proceeds of the Farrington Disputed Claim Reserve.

Funds from the Disputed Claims Reserve will be released to either
the Debtor or Farrington absent a subsequent Court Order to the
contrary, within 25 days from the earlier of: (a) the entry of an
Order of dismissal by the Bankruptcy Court of the Adversary
Proceeding as to Farrington; (b) the settlement of the Adversary
Proceeding; or (c) the adjudication of all causes of action in the
Adversary Proceeding as to Farrington.  Depending on the result
achieved as set forth, a Farrington Disputed Claim Reserve
Withdrawal may constitute a complete or partial withdrawal.

If Purchaser does not consummate the sale of the Property on 45
days from the entry of the Confirmation Order, then the Debtor will
distribute a portion of the funds in its possession, including, but
not limited to, the down payment remitted by the Purchaser to the
Debtor under the Original Contract of Sale, as follows: (a) first,
payment in full of the real estate tax claims in Class 2 and Class
3 Claims under the Plan; (b) second, the next $500,000 on account
of the Class 1 Claim under the Plan to be applied to the principal
amount of the Farrington Claim without prejudice to the Debtor's
rights hereunder and under the Plan and Confirmation Order and
subject to its claims and objection(s) to claim against Farrington,
et al. in the Farrington Adversary Proceeding; and (c) up to the
next $200,000 on account of the Allowed Professional Fees, subject
to Court approval of said professional fees.

In the event the sale to Linden Center does not take place within
45 days of entry of the Confirmation Order, the Debtor agrees that
it will file a motion seeking to sell the Property, at an auction
to be held on Dec. 20, 2017.  This provision will not prevent the
Debtor, at its option, from closing with the Purchaser or seeking
approval of another means of funding the Plan (i.e., refinance) at
any time between the Auction Motion Due Date and the Auction Date.

For the avoidance of doubt, and notwithstanding any other provision
in the Order, all amounts required to satisfy the senior liens held
by the City of New York and the tax lien trusts pursuant to NYC
Admin. Code Section 11-301, with statutory interest thereon, will
be paid at closing from the proceeds of sale ahead of any other
lien, claim or encumbrance and prior to the entry into any mortgage
by the Purchaser or the exercise by the Debtor of its rights to
acquire an interest in the Purchaser, as set forth.

Any stay required by Bankruptcy Rules 6004(h) or 6006(d) are
waived, for cause, and the Order is effective immediately upon its
entry.

The delivery of a deed by the Debtor to the Purchaser and the
issuance of any mortgage in connection therewith, are instruments
of transfer made in furtherance of and is contemplated by the
Debtor's confirmed Plan, and thereby will be exempt from Stamp
Taxes, and the recording officers are directed to accept and record
the deed and mortgage without payment of such Stamp Taxes.

INCA REFINING: May Exclusively File Plan Until Jan. 2018
--------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Jerry A. Brown of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Eastern District of Louisiana has extended, at the behest of INCA
Refining, LLC, and the West Bank Land Company, LLC, the period
within which the Debtors have the exclusive right to file a plan of
reorganization through Jan. 2, 2018.

No other deadline, including those set forth in 11 U.S.C. Section

INNOVATIVE CHEMICAL: S&P Assigns 'B-' CCR on Refinancing
--------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said that it assigned its 'B-' corporate credit
rating to Andover, Mass.-based Innovative Chemical Products Group.
The rating outlook is stable.

Innovative Chemical Products Group (ICP Group), a formulator of
specialty coatings, adhesives, and sealants, is refinancing its
capital structure.

S&P said, "At the same time, we assigned our 'B' issue-level rating
(one notch above the corporate credit rating) to the company's
proposed first-lien credit facilities, consisting of a $40 million
revolver, and $250 million of total first-lien term loan, which
includes a $45 million delayed draw tranche. The recovery rating on
the first-lien facilities is '2', indicating our expectation of
substantial (70%-90%; rounded estimate: 75%) recovery in the event
of a payment default.

"We also assigned our 'CCC' issue-level rating (two notches below
the corporate credit rating) to the company's proposed second-lien
debt, consisting of $105 million of total second-lien term loan,
which includes a $20 million delayed-draw tranche. The '6' recovery
rating on the second-lien debt indicates our expectation of
negligible (0%-10%; rounded estimate: 0%) recovery in the event of
a payment default."

All ratings are based on preliminary terms and conditions. The
co-borrowers of the first- and second-lien debt are ICP Industrial
Inc., ICP Construction Inc., and ICP Adhesives and Sealants Inc.

S&P said, "The stable outlook on ICP Group reflects our expectation
that growth in niche market applications and gradual margin
improvement due to lower acquisition and restructuring expenses
will support the company's ability to modestly improve credit
measures at the current rating. We expect a modestly favorable
economic environment with U.S. GDP growth of 2.1% in 2017 and 2.3%
in 2018, will support volume growth in the company's end markets.
We expect organic revenue growth to be complemented by acquisitions
funded by delayed-draw term loan capacity. At the current rating,
we expect weighted-average adjusted debt to EBITDA of 6x-7x on a
sustainable basis. Our base case scenario does not factor in any
transformational acquisitions or dividends.

"We could lower the ratings within the next 12 months if operating
performance deteriorates significantly as a result of weakening in
the construction market, or with unexpected challenges related to
the integration of recent acquisitions. These scenarios could lead
to weaker profitability than our base-case forecast, as well as
deteriorating credit measures. We could lower the rating if EBITDA
margins are 300 bps below our base-case forecast, resulting in debt
to EBITDA exceeding 7.5x on a sustained basis. We could also lower
the rating in the event of large debt-funded acquisitions, or if
unexpected cash outlays or business challenges reduce the company's
liquidity position such that free cash flow turned negative and
liquidity sources are less than 1.2x liquidity uses.

"We could raise ratings within the next 12 months if the company
delivers stronger-than-expected profitability due to margin
expansion and favorable end-market developments. This could occur
if construction market growth accelerated faster than we project,
leading to increased volumes and higher margins. We could consider
a higher rating if EBITDA margins expanded by 200 bps more than our
projections, combined with higher-than-expected revenues. If this
were to occur, we believe weighted-average adjusted debt to EBITDA
would improve to 6x or lower on a sustained basis. For a higher
rating, we would need to expect that the company's financial
policies to be supportive of maintaining credit metrics at these
levels."


IRONCLAD PERFORMANCE: Proposes Oct. 30 Auction of All Assets
------------------------------------------------------------
Ironclad Performance Wear Corp.-California, and Ironclad
Performance Wear Corp.-Nevada, ask the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the Central District of California to authorize the sale of
substantially all assets to Radians Wareham Holding, Inc. for $20
million or $15 million, depending upon the occurrence of an event
that is set forth in a letter agreement that is the subject of a
motion to seal, subject to overbid.

A hearing on the Motion is set for Oct. 30, 2017 at 10:00 a.m.

The Debtors and the Purchaser entered into Asset Purchase Agreement
for the sale and purchase of the Assets.  Under the APA, the
Purchaser has agreed to purchase the vast majority of the Debtors'
assets for the cash purchase price of $20 million or $15 million.


It is possible that the event that would dictate whether the
Purchaser's opening bid at the Auction is $15 million or $20
million will not have been determined by the time of the Auction.
The sale would be free and clear of all Encumbrances with all liens
existing against the Purchased Assets at the time of the Closing to
attach to the net sale proceeds.

The Debtors are also seeking the Court's approval of their
assumption and assignment to the Purchaser (or the successful
overbidder) of those unexpired leases and executory contracts that
the Purchaser (or the successful overbidder) wishes to assume.  The
Purchaser has not yet identified for the Debtors which of their
executory contracts and unexpired leases that it desires to have
assigned to it if it is the winning bidder at the Auction (or if
there is no Auction).  The Purchaser is required to make that
designation by one day prior to the sale closing.  If someone other
than the Purchaser is the successful bidder at the Auction, the
Debtors will not know which of their executory contracts and
unexpired leases the winning bidder will desire to have assigned to
it until the winning bidder at the Auction makes that determination
which the winning bidder will also be required to make by one day
prior to the Closing.

As a result, the Debtors are asking the Court's authority to assume
and assign to the Purchaser (or to a successful overbidder) all of
their executory contracts and unexpired leases that the Purchaser
(or a successful overbidder) wants to have assigned to it and to
fix the required Cure Amounts that would need to be paid to the
other parties to the executory contracts and unexpired leases.

The prospective overbidders are not required to have their overbid
be subject to the same occurrence of event set forth in the letter
agreement as the Purchaser.  The prospective overbidders are
welcome and encouraged not to make their bid subject to that
occurrence of event.  If the event that would dictate whether the
Purchaser's opening bid at the Auction is $15 million or $20
million has not been determined by the time of the Auction, then
unless the Purchaser waives that contingency, the opening bid at
the Auction by the Purchaser will be $15 million and the minimum
initial overbid will need to be at least $15,750,000.

In order to insure that the highest price possible is paid for the
Purchased Assets, the Debtors' proposed sale to the Purchaser is
subject to overbid at the Auction to be held on Oct. 30, 2017.  The
Debtors have retained the highly regarded investment bank of
Craig-Hallum Capital Group LLC ("C-H") to market the Purchased
Assets for overbid and to work with the Debtors to conduct the
Auction in the event of one or more qualified overbidders.  C-H has
continued to market the Debtors' business/assets for overbid
post-petition and will continue to do so through the Auction.

At a continued hearing held on Sept. 25, 2017, the Court granted
the Debtors' emergency motion to approve their proposed bidding
procedures by order entered on Sept. 28, 2017.  The Bidding
Procedures Order was approved by the Debtors, the Purchaser, and
the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors and Official
Committee of Equity Holders that were appointed in these cases.

The location of the Auction will be determined after the number of
qualified overbidders becomes known.  The Debtors intend to ask the
Court's approval of the sale of the Purchased Assets to the
Purchaser or a successful overbidder immediately following the
completion of the Auction.  If there are no qualified overbidders,
the Debtors will proceed to request the Court to approve the
Debtors' sale of the Purchased Assets and the Debtors' assumption
and assignment of the Designated Contracts to the Purchaser at the
hearing to be held on Oct. 30, 2017.

If Purchaser is the winning bidder at the Auction (or if there are
no qualified overbidders), the Purchaser is required to close its
purchase of the Purchased Assets within five days following the
date upon which all of the conditions set forth in Article IX and
Article X of the APA have been satisfied, including entry of the
sale order by the Court.  If a qualified overbidder is the winning
bidder at the Auction, the winning bidder is required to close its
purchase of the Purchased Assets within 14 days following the entry
of the sale order by the Court.

Given their lack of liquidity and inability to access a sufficient
amount of new funding to pay off the Purchaser (who is also the
Debtors' current senior secured creditor having acquired their bank
debt before the bankruptcy filings and provided post-petition, the
Debtors have concluded that consummating a sale of the Purchased
Assets for the most money possible is in the best interests of the
their creditors (who are expected to be paid in full) and their
shareholders.  Accordingly, the Debtors ask the Court to approve
the relief sought.

The Debtors further ask the Court to waive the 14-day stay periods
set forth in Bankruptcy Rules 6004(h) and 6006(d).

JOHN GORMAN: Trustee Selling Austin Property to Joneses for $270K
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Richard Schmidt, Chapter 11 Trustee for John J. Gorman IV, asks the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Western District of Texas to authorze
his sale of the single-family residence located at 3316 Marin
Court, Austin, Texas to Trennis and Grova Jones for $270,000.

The Debtor's Amended Schedules reflect a fee simple interest in the
Property.  The Property is encumbered by the following liens: (i)
First Lien - U.S. Bank Trust N.A., as Trustee of Bungalow Series F
Trust - alleged to be $108,614; (ii) Second Lien - Judgment Lien in
favor of Centennial Bank ??? alleged amount $1,502,472; and (iii)
Ad Valorem Taxes - Estimated Amount $5,783.

The Trustee retained JB Goodwin Realtors to market the property
with instructions to sell the Property in its present condition
within a 120-day time frame.  The Property has been vacant for some
time and requires significant cosmetic repairs.

Immediately after placing the Property on the market, the Broker
received two offers to purchase the Property.  The Trustee has
selected the Residential Earnest Money Contract to sell the
Property to the Buyers for $270,000.  The proposed sale is all
cash, "as is" and subject to a 10-day option period.  Pursuant to
the Contract, the Debtor's Estate will sell the Property free and
clear of all liens, claims, interests, and encumbrances.  The
earnest money deposit of $2,700 was deposited with Kierstin McBride
at First American Title.  The Closing of the sale will be on Oct.
26 2017.  The proposed purchase price will pay the first lien and
the ad valorem taxes in full.

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

        http://bankrupt.com/misc/John_Gorman_209_Sales.pdf

The Trustee has negotiated an agreement with Centennial Bank for an
agreed surcharge payable to the Debtor's estate in an amount equal
to 10% of the net proceeds after payment of the first lien, the
taxes and the ordinary, necessary and reasonable costs of sale.

Upon closing, the Purchase Price from the sale will be distributed
as follows: (i) payment of the allowed amount of the first lien;
(ii) payment of allowed ad valorem taxes; (iii) payment of the
ordinary, reasonable and necessary costs of closing; (iv) payment
of 10% of the net proceeds remaining after payment of the sums due
to the Trustee; and (v) the remaining balance of the Purchase Price
to Centennial Bank.

The Trustee believes the Sale is the best way to maximize the value
of the Debtor's estate for the benefit of his creditors and other
parties in interest.  The Debtor's estate lacks equity in the
Property.  The proposed transaction provides for the satisfaction
of the claims of US Bank, reduces the judgment lien held by
Centennial Bank by approximately $120,000 and produces a return of
approximately $13,000 to the Debtor's estate.  If the proposed
transaction does not close, US Bank (which has filed a motion for
relief from stay) would likely foreclose upon the Property and
there would be no reduction of the Centennial judgment and no
realization of any recovery to the estate.

KENNETH MANIS: Sale of Baxter Property for $15K Approved
--------------------------------------------------------
Judge Charles M. Walker of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Middle
District of Tennessee authorized Kenneth D. and Jenifer N. Manis to
sell their real property located at 110 Rachelle Place, Baxter,
Tennessee, for $14,600.

From the sale proceeds, the Debtor will pay the costs of the
closing attorney, an owner's title insurance policy, the deed tax
and all outstanding property taxes, the total of which is estimated
to be approximately $650.

Said sale is free and clear of the interests of any lien holder;
however, said lien will attach to the proceeds of the sale and will
be distributed pursuant to the priority of lienholders.

The lienholder, Putnam 1st Mercantile Bank has agreed to release
its lien for the stated sale price, as long as all proceeds are
applied to the loan.

KNIGHT ENERGY: Committee Seeks Rejection of Disclosure Statement
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Unsecured Creditors Committee of Knight Energy Holdings, LLC,
and its affiliated debtors filed an objection to the approval of
the Debtor's disclosure statement for their joint Chapter 11 plan
of reorganization, dated August 25, 2017.

The Committee complains that the Disclosure Statement lacks
adequate information to allow the unsecured creditors to make an
informed judgment about the Plan in that it provides little to no
information regarding the values of the Debtors??? assets or the
sweeping releases granted to a myriad of parties. Based upon the
information that the Committee has thus far discovered, the
Disclosure Statement inadequately describes a Plan that is
unconfirmable.

The committee also contends that the disclosures related to
insiders are wholly inadequate. A disclosure statement should
include "the actual or projected realizable value from recovery of
preferential or otherwise avoidable transfers."

The Disclosure Statement also fails to describe the ownership
structure of the non-Debtor affiliates identified by the Debtors,
nor is there any discussion of transfers made to these entities in
the two years immediately preceding the Petition Date. The
Disclosure Statement fails to describe the relationship between
Knight Resources and the Debtors, nor is there any disclosure of
the source of funds used to acquire the Challenger and Tri-State
interests identified by the Debtors.

Further, although the Disclosure Statement does address the amounts
owed to various Secured Creditors, it provides no analysis as to
the amount of their Secured Claims because the Disclosure Statement
makes no attempt to assign any value to any underlying collateral.

In addition, the Plan is fatally flawed and cannot be confirmed
because it was not proposed in good faith and constitutes a breach
of the Debtor and the Consenting Holders??? fiduciary duties to the
Estates.

For the foregoing reasons, the Committee objects to the approval of
the Disclosure Statement, requests that any disclosure statement
and plan proposed by the Debtors and/or confirmed by the Bankruptcy
Court include provisions supplementing, clarifying and/or modifying
such pleadings consistent with this Objection, and further requests
that the Court grant such other and further relief as may be just
and proper.

The Troubled Company Reporter previously reported that Plan
provides a framework to substantially reduce the Debtors'
prepetition funded debt obligations and the Debtors' interest
burden.

One of the plan's material terms states that each holder of an
Allowed General Unsecured Claim will receive their pro rata share
from the $1,000,000 General Unsecured Claims Fund; provided,
however that if the Holders of the General Unsecured Claims vote as
a class to confirm the Plan, then the Holders of the Senior Credit
Facility Deficiency Claim will forego their right to receive any
recovery from the General Unsecured Claims Fund on account of their
Senior Credit Facility Deficiency Claim, and the Senior Credit
Facility Deficiency Claim will be excluded from the calculation of
the pro rata recoveries of the other holders of General Unsecured
Claims from the General Unsecured Claims Fund. For the avoidance of
doubt, the Senior Credit Facility Deficiency Claim will be
classified as a General Unsecured Claim and the Holders thereof
will be permitted to vote such Claims to accept or reject the
Plan.

Estimated recovery for the general unsecured claimants is up to
10%.

LEARFIELD COMMUNICATIONS: S&P Puts 'B' CCR on CreditWatch Negative
------------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings placed all ratings, including its 'B' corporate
credit rating, on Plano, Texas-based Learfield Communications LLC
on CreditWatch with negative implications.

U.S. collegiate sports multimedia and sponsorship firm Learfield
Communications LLC (Learfield) has announced a definitive agreement
under which it will merge with IMG College, the collegiate division
of WME IMG, a subsidiary of Endeavor (formerly WME Entertainment
Parent LLC).

S&P said, "The CreditWatch listing reflects the possibility that
Learfield could issue incremental debt to fund the merger,
resulting in total lease- and guarantee-adjusted leverage above our
7x downgrade threshold. While financial terms and the structure of
the transaction were not disclosed, Learfield announced that WME
IMG and its financial sponsor Silver Lake will have board
representation at the new company. As a result, we have assumed
that the consideration paid to parent Endeavor will include an
equity component. However, based on the tendency of financial
sponsors to engage in debt-financed transactions, we have also
assumed that there will likely be proceeds from an incremental debt
issuance at the new entity, which could push adjusted leverage
above Learfield's current downgrade threshold, despite the acquired
EBITDA contribution from IMG College. In addition, we could view
forms of equity other than common stock, if any is contributed in
the new capital structure, as debt-like obligations that increase
leverage. In calculating adjusted leverage, we may incorporate
synergies in the transaction, depending upon our view of the
likelihood and time horizon over which they could materialize. Upon
disclosure of financial terms, we will assess the full ratings
implications, including our opinion of the business profile and a
potential update to our 7x adjusted leverage downgrade threshold.

"We will resolve the CreditWatch listing in the coming months once
financial terms are available and we can fully assess the impact of
the prospective capital structure, including any possible
incremental debt issuance and the use of any forms of equity other
than common equity. We will also assess business risk and the fixed
future minimum revenue guarantee payments of the proposed combined
new entity. Based on our current downgrade threshold, we could
lower the rating by one notch if lease and guarantee adjusted debt
to EBITDA exceeds 7x on a sustained basis."


MERRIMACK PHARMACEUTICALS: Reaches Settlement in Delaware Case
--------------------------------------------------------------
Merrimack Pharmaceuticals has reached a settlement agreement with
Wolverine Flagship Fund Trading Limited, 1992 MSF International
Ltd. and 1992 Tactical Credit Master Fund, L.P. (collectively,
"Noteholder Plaintiffs") and Wells Fargo Bank, National
Association, to resolve the previously disclosed lawsuit captioned
Wells Fargo Bank, N.A., et. al. v. Merrimack Pharmaceuticals, Inc.
pending in the Court of Chancery in the State of Delaware.  The
Agreement resolves outstanding litigation associated with
Merrimack's asset sale to Ipsen.

As disclosed previously, the Noteholder Plaintiffs alleged in the
Delaware Action, filed March 15, 2017, that Merrimack was obligated
to offer to repurchase its outstanding 4.50% Convertible Notes due
2020 in connection with Merrimack's asset sale to Ipsen S.A.  As
also disclosed previously, in connection with the decision to
proceed directly to trial and the plaintiffs' withdrawal of their
motion for a preliminary injunction, Merrimack deposited $60
million into an escrow account as security for the plaintiff's
claims.

Under the terms of this settlement, Merrimack will pay the
Noteholder Plaintiffs $0.90 per $1.00 of Convertible Notes, plus
accrued interest, and an amount towards the plaintiffs' legal fees.
Additionally, in connection with the settlement, Merrimack has
agreed to commence a tender offer to acquire all remaining
Convertible Notes at the same rate of $0.90 per $1.00 of
Convertible Notes, plus accrued interest, which would eliminate all
of Merrimack's remaining debt if all of the noteholders
participate.  Together, the settlement payout, the amount Merrimack
expects to pay to acquire the remaining Convertible Notes and
Merrimack's expenses related to the Delaware Action will
approximate the $60 million now released from escrow, and as a
result Merrimack does not intend to declare an additional special
dividend with any funds from the escrow.

"We are pleased to move past this litigation, allowing us to
simplify our capital structure and potentially emerge with a clean
balance sheet," said Richard Peters, M.D., Ph.D., president and
chief executive officer.  "We are focused on our deep research
pipeline and three assets in clinical development as we march
towards a data-rich 2018."

MIKE FARRELL'S: Wants to Use Cash Collateral to Continue Operations
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Mike Farrell's Detroit Wrecker Sales, LLC, seeks permission from
the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Michigan to
use up to $258,140 of cash collateral to purchase parts, inventory
and services, and to pay wages, salaries and other immediate
operating expenses of the Debtor's business.

On the Petition Date, the Debtor, without admission, believes that
the cash collateral consists of $22,177.26 in cash, $7,300 in
accounts receivable, $17,000 worth of inventory/WIP, and $15,000
worth of machinery and equipment.

The Debtor anticipates that GSC Industries, LLC, will assert first
priority security interest in all of the Debtor's assets, except
its real estate, including, without limitation, the Debtor's cash
collateral in the approximate amount of $158,708.27, plus interest,
costs and fees as permitted by the loan documents executed in
connection with the GSC Indebtedness.

The Debtor believes that Cooper Lane Mortgages, LLC, may also
assert an interest in cash collateral as a result of a security
interest granted in a mortgage on the Debtor's real property.
However, it appears that Cooper Lane did not perfect its security
interest.

The Debtor believes that the cash collateral generated by the
operation of its business will be sufficient to pay all of the
Debtor's post-petition, on-going expenses including payments to
employees and vendors, adequate protection payments, and payments
required to fund the administrative expenses of this case.

During the first 30 days of the case, the Debtor expects that it
will need to spend $258,140 to avoid immediate and irreparable
harm.  The majority of the Debtor's value arises from its continued
operations as a going concern basis.  

Without authority to use cash collateral, the Debtor will suffer
irreparable harm because the Debtor will be unable to obtain all
the goods and services needed to continue its operations.  The
Debtor will not be able to complete the jobs that it current
working on and will not be able to finalize the WIP Equipment and
deliver it to its customers in exchange for final payment.  In
addition, the Debtor would likely be sued for breach of contract by
its existing customers -- many of whom have paid the Debtor several
thousand dollars as a deposit for the WIP Equipment that the Debtor
is currently manufacturing.

As adequate protection for the use of cash collateral, the Debtor
proposes:

     -- replacement liens for GSC and Cooper Lane, in the Debtor's
postpetition assets to the extent of any diminution in the value of
their interests in the Debtor's cash collateral assets.  The
replacement liens will have the same priority, scope, validity, and
enforceability, and will attach to the same categories of assets as
the prepetition liens and security interests as of the Petition
Date; and

     -- further adequate protection as provided in the proposed
order including reporting requirements, restrictions on the
Debtor's activities including adherence to the budget, and rights
upon the occurrence of an event of default.

president and general manager of the Volcano business after the
acquisition of Volcano by Philips, and executive vice president of
the Cardiology division for Volcano.  He has held significant
operational responsibilities throughout his career in R&D, Clinical
Research, Sales and Marketing.  Mr. Burnett holds a B.S.E. in
Biomedical Engineering from Duke University and an MBA from the
Fuqua Business School also at Duke.

"On behalf of the board of directors, we thank Frank Grillo for his
leadership, and in particular, for his invaluable contributions to
building out our commercialization capabilities and guiding MRI
Interventions through the difficult initial phases of market
adoption," said Mr. Jenkins.  "As Frank transitions, he leaves our
company stronger and well positioned for the future.  We appreciate
his significant efforts over the last three years, and his
dedication to the company's success."

"I am very pleased with the progress we have made over the last
three years as a company and a team," said Frank Grillo, departing
president and CEO.  "We focused on the neuro navigation
opportunity, and made great progress driving the adoption of our
ClearPoint System which has resulted in the tripling of product
revenue in three years.  We have strengthened our balance sheet,
which enables further investment in commercialization and the
continued development of new therapeutic applications for our
intra-operative MRI capabilities.  Our foundation and opportunities
are stronger than ever before, and I am confident we have found the
right person in Joe Burnett to accelerate our growth
opportunities."

"I am thrilled to join the MRI team and help lead this next chapter
which will focus on clinical development, market adoption and
continued procedure growth," commented Mr. Burnett.  "The stakes
are high in neurosurgical procedures and precision is paramount.
Our team is well positioned by having a real-time navigation
solution which we believe will enable the transition to more
minimally invasive procedures and ultimately benefit both the
patient and the hospital.  We have seen that trend in every field
in medical devices and each time navigation has been an essential
part of the solution.  Frank has done an incredible job setting the
stage both financially and strategically by building a strong
balance sheet and cash position, and by developing a product
suitable across a range of growing procedure types.  I look forward
to continuing that work and ensuring that more patients benefit
from these life-altering therapies."

The Board expects to elect Mr. Burnett to serve as a director of
the Company until the 2018 annual meeting of stockholders and until
his successor is duly elected and qualified or until his earlier
death, resignation, disqualification or removal.

Agreement, Mr. Grillo will execute a general release of all claims
upon the effectiveness of his separation from the Company.

               Employment Agreement with Mr. Burnett

On Oct. 6, 2017, the Company entered into an Employment Agreement

----------------------------------------------------------
Neiman Marcus Group LTD LLC filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission its annual report disclosing a net loss of $531.8
million on $4.70 billion of revenues for the fiscal year ended July
29, 2017, compared to a net loss of $406.1 million on $4.94 billion
of revenues for the fiscal year ended July 30, 2016.

For the fourth quarter, the Company reported total revenues of
$1.12 billion, representing a decrease in comparable revenues of
0.5% from the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2016.  Including
non-cash impairment charges of $357.0 million and $466.2 million in
the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2017 and fiscal year 2016, the
Company reported a net loss of $366.3 million for the fourth
quarter of fiscal year 2017 compared to a net loss of $407.3
million in the prior year.  Adjusted EBITDA, which is described on
page 8 of this release, for the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2017
was $48.2 million compared to $64.5 million in the prior year.

The Company recorded non-cash impairment charges to state certain

                       About Neiman Marcus

Headquartered in Dallas, Texas, Neiman Marcus Group LTD LLC --
http://www.neimanmarcusgroup.com/-- is a luxury, multi-branded,
omni-channel fashion retailer conducting integrated store and
online operations under the Neiman Marcus, Bergdorf Goodman, Last
Call, Horchow, CUSP, and mytheresa brand names.

                           *    *    *

As reported by the TCR on March 17, 2017, Moody's Investors Service
downgraded Neiman Marcus Group LTD, Inc.'s Corporate Family Rating
to 'Caa2' from 'B3' and its Probability of Default Rating to
'Caa2-PD' from 'B3-PD'.  The company's Speculative Grade Liquidity
rating is affirmed at 'SGL-2'. The outlook is changed to negative
from stable.  "The downgrade of NMG's Corporate Family Rating
reflects the continued weakness in its financial results as it
faces both the cyclical and secular challenges that face the North
America luxury department stores", says Christina Boni, VP Senior
Analyst.  "Its designation of its MyTheresa.com operations and
certain owned properties to unrestricted subsidiaries reduces
assets coverage for its debt obligations.  The hiring of a
financial advisor to evaluate strategic alternatives also signals
the likelihood of its capital structure being addressed well before
its first significant debt maturity in October 2020. Despite good
liquidity, overall leverage levels remain well above what can be
refinanced and a path to return to peak EBITDA levels is unlikely
in the present operating environment."


OAKLAWN HOSPITAL: Moody's Affirms Ba1 Rating on $63MM Rev. Bonds
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service affirms Ella E.M. Brown Charitable
Circle's (d/b/a Oaklawn Hospital) Ba1 rating. The rating action
affects $63.5 million of outstanding revenue bonds issued through
the County of Calhoun Hospital Finance Authority. The outlook
remains stable. The affirmation of the Ba1 rating reflects
Oaklawn's adequate liquidity position and incorporates the
hospital's essentiality as the area's leading acute care hospital.
Additionally, the rating incorporates good revenue growth, driven
by favorable volume trends and payor mix. Balancing these strengths
are the hospital's overall small size and scope of operations which
limits financial flexibility and a high debt burden.

Rating Outlook

The stable outlook reflects Moody's views that the hospital will be
able to continue to maintain operating performance more in line
with the past few years and maintain its strong market presence
within the hospital's primary service area.

Factors that Could Lead to an Upgrade

Growth of operating revenue and absolute cash, allowing the
organization to improve leverage metrics

Expansion of service lines or geographic reach resulting in overall
growth and revenue diversification

Factors that Could Lead to a Downgrade

Reduction in operating performance

Increase in leverage and further weakening of debt measures

Erosion of liquidity and narrowing headroom to financial covenants

Legal Security

The bonds are secured by a gross revenue pledge of the obligated
group bolstered by an account control agreement, as well as a
mortgage on the hospital site in Marshall, Michigan.

Use of Proceeds. Not Applicable

Obligor Profile

Oaklawn Hospital is a 94 licensed bed and $138 million independent
hospital located in Marshall, Michigan. Oaklawn is one of few
remaining standalone hospitals within the state of Michigan.

Methodology

The principal methodology used in this rating was Not-For-Profit
Healthcare Rating Methodology published in November 2015.

ONE HORIZON: Issues 3M Shares Inducement Grants to CEO and COO
--------------------------------------------------------------
One Horizon Group, Inc., disclosed additional information on stock
inducement grants for two recently appointed executives: Mark
White, chief executive officer, president and director; and Edwin
C. Lun, chief operating officer.  Mr. White and Mr. Lun will be
based in Hong Kong at the new regional headquarters to oversee the
Company's business development and operations in China and Hong

White 1,600,000 shares of its common stock.  The Company has issued
to Mr. Lun 1,400,000 shares of its common stock as an inducement
grant.

                       About One Horizon

Ireland-based One Horizon Group, Inc. (NASDAQ: OHGI) --
http://www.onehorizongroup.com/-- is a reseller of secure
messaging software for the growing gaming, security and education
markets primarily in China and Hong Kong.

The Company's independent accountants Cherry Bekaert LLP, in Tampa,
Fla., issued a "going concern" opinion in its report on the
Company's consolidated financial statements for the year ended Dec.
31, 2016, stating that the Company has recurring losses and
negative cash flows from operations that raise substantial doubt
about its ability to continue as a going concern.

One Horizon reported a net loss of $5.54 million on $1.61 million
of revenue for the year ended Dec. 31, 2016, compared to a net loss
of $6.30 million on $1.53 million of revenue for the year ended in
2015.  As of June 30, 2017, One Horizon had $8.83 million in total
assets, $7.20 million in total liabilities and $1.63 million in
total stockholders' equity

"As Horizon continues to pursue its operations and business plan,
it expects to incur further losses in 2017 which, when combined
with any investment in intellectual property, will generate
negative cash flows," said the Company in its quarterly report for
the period ended June 30, 2017.  "As of June 30, 2017, the Company
did not have any available credit facilities.  As a result, it is
in the process of seeking new financing by way of sale of either
convertible debt or equities.  Subsequent to June 30, 2017, the
Company entered into a series of transactions to improve liquidity
and reduce outstanding obligations...  Whilst it has been
successful in the past in obtaining the necessary capital to
support its investment and operations, there is no assurance that
it will be able to obtain additional financing under acceptable
terms and conditions, or at all.  In the event, Horizon is unable
to obtain sufficient additional funding when needed in order to
fund ongoing research and development activities as well as
operations, it would not be able to continue as a going concern and
maybe forced to severely curtail or cease operations and liquidate
the Company."

PITTSFIELD DEVELOPMENT: Needs More Time to Fix Claims, Draft Plan
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Pittsfield Development LLC asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Northern District of Illinois to further extend the Debtor's
exclusive periods to file a Chapter 11 plan and solicit acceptance
of the plan through Jan. 5, 2018, and March 2, 2018, respectively.

A hearing on the Debtor's request will be held on Oct. 17, 2017, at
9:30 a.m.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on July 31, 2017, the
Court issued an order extending the Debtor's exclusive period to
file a Chapter 11 Plan until Oct. 24.

The Debtor tells the Court that its exclusive period to file and
solicit acceptances of a plan and disclosure statement should be
extended as the Debtor is negotiating with creditors and working on
a plan.  The Debtor is working to resolve claim objections and to
draft its exit plan.  So that Debtor can finish those tasks, it
seeks a two-month extension of the exclusivity period.

The Debtor continues to operate its business and manage its affairs
as a debtor in possession under Sections 1107 and 1108 of the U.S.
Bankruptcy Code.  The Debtor has sold its principal asset -- a
portion of a building in Chicago's Loop -- and now intends to
confirm a plan that will distribute the proceeds.  While it has
been formulating its plan, the Debtor has also been negotiating
with creditors to resolve potential claim objections.  The Debtor
is negotiating with creditors and drafting its plan, but it needs
more time to do so.

                About Pittsfield Development LLC

POINT.360: Files for Chapter 11 with $15 Million in Debt
--------------------------------------------------------
Point.360 (OTC-Pink: PTSX), a provider of integrated media
management services, sought Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection for
breathing room to deal with $15 million in debt.

The Debtor has sought a hearing on shortened notice of its motion
to use cash collateral and access DIP financing.

"The Debtor had to file for relief due to expiration of 3-day
notice on critical business facility.  Shortened time for hearing
is necessary as Debtor cannot use cash in operations absent
approval to use cash collateral.  The Debtor operates a substantial
video post-production business with over 275 employees.  Use of
cash in operations is necessary to maintain the Debtor's business
as a going concern," the Debtor's attorney, Lewis R. Landau, said
in court filings.

"The Debtor's next payroll is due Friday, October 13, 2017 and thus
prepetition payroll approval cannot await a hearing on regular
notice."

The Company said in a statement that it intends to use the filing
to reorganize its capital structure and gain access to liquidity,
reduce costs and liabilities, optimize its operations and locations
to meet customer demands and create the most value for
stakeholders.  The Company is considering all possible options for
maximizing stakeholder value, including further consolidation of
facilities.  The Company believes that the restructuring will allow
it to become more competitive in today's post production market.
It is also reviewing investment options with existing stakeholders
and third parties.

The Company expects to continue its operations without interruption
during the pendency of the Chapter 11 Case.

During the restructuring process, the Company plans to continue to
operate its business as usual and to fulfill customer orders and
pay vendors.  The Company has filed with the Bankruptcy Court, and
anticipates receiving approval of, customary motions to allow the
Company to make certain necessary payments to employees and vendors
that will ensure continued operations through the restructuring and
beyond.

                          Entry of Judgment

The Company said in an Oct. 10, 2017, filing with the Securities
and Exchange Commission that on Oct. 6, 2017, it and REEP OFC 2300
Empire CA LLC, the landlord of the Company's leased facility at
2300 Empire Ave., Burbank CA 91504, entered into a Stipulation for
Entry of Judgment.  The Agreement provides that (i) the December
31, 2017 expiration date of the lease for the Premises will be
accelerated to December 4, 2017; (ii) the Company will return
possession of the Premises and pay to the landlord approximately
$0.9 million for past due rent and damages by Dec. 4, 2017; and
(iii) assuming the Company complies with (ii) above, the landlord
will not assert any administrative priority claim for any
post-petition rent or charges for the period of occupancy prior to
December 4, 2017.

                        $15 Million in Debt

The Company's balance sheet at March 31, 2017, showed $11.14
million in assets and $14.78 million in liabilities.  The Company's
filing of a bankruptcy petition constitutes an event of default
that could accelerate the Company's obligations under the following
debt instruments:

    * Term Loan Agreement and related Security Agreement, both
      dated as of July 8, 2015, among Point.360, Medley Capital
      Corporation and Medley Opportunity Fund II LP.

    * Amended and Restated Loan and Security Agreement dated
      July 13, 2016 between the Company and Austin Financial
      Services, Inc.

As of Oct. 10, 2017, the Company had approximately (i) $6.4 million
in outstanding obligations under the Medley Agreements, and (ii)
$2.4 million outstanding under the Austin Agreement.

The Debt Instruments provide that as a result of the commencement
of the Chapter 11 Case, the principal and accrued interest due
thereunder shall be automatically and immediately due and payable.
Any efforts to enforce such payment obligations under the Debt
Instruments are automatically stayed as a result of the filing of
the Bankruptcy Petition, and the creditors' rights of enforcement
in respect of the Debt Instruments are subject to the applicable
provisions of the Bankruptcy Code and orders of the Bankruptcy
Court.

The Company's filing of a Bankruptcy Petition could also constitute
an event of default under each of these facility operating leases:

   * Lease Agreement (Media Center) dated March 29, 2006,
     between the Company and LEAFS Properties, LP.

   * Standard Industrial/Commercial Single-Tenant Lease-Net
     (Hollywood Way) dated Oct. 11, 2016 between Point.360
     and HWAY LLC.

   * Lease Agreement (Empire) effective as of July 1, 2015
     (entered into August 24, 2015) between Point.360 and
     Walton Empire Center V, L.L.C. (lease subsequently
     assumed by REEP OFC 2300 Empire CA LLC).

As a result of the filing, the landlords of the facilities may have
the right to terminate the leases, regain possession, and require
the Company to pay rent and damages as provided in the leases
subject to the applicable provisions of the Bankruptcy Code and
orders of the Bankruptcy Court.

REVOLUTION ALUMINUM: Court Approves L. Sikes as Chapter 11 Trustee
------------------------------------------------------------------
Judge John W. Kolwe of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District

              About Revolution Aluminum Propco

Ryan & Associates, Inc., Engineered Products, Inc., and Tina J.

ROCKLINE VAC SYSTEMS: J. Fernandez Seeks Ch. 11 Trustee Appointment
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Creditor John M. Fernandez filed a motion asking the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Florida to convert
Rockline VAC Systems, Inc.'s case to a chapter 7 proceeding, or to
appoint a Chapter 11 Trustee, or to dismiss the case.

Fernandez contends that conversion of the case to a chapter 7
proceeding or the appointment of a chapter 11 trustee is
appropriate and warranted. The Debtor and its principal have shown
absolutely no regard or respect for the judicial system.
Pre-petition, the Debtor (and its principal) demonstrated their
complete disregard for the court system by their blatant failure to
comply with court orders and make appropriate and adequate
disclosure. The Debtor and its principal have already been found in
contempt by the state court and this behavior continued with the
Receiver. The bankruptcy filing was on the eve of the state court's
ratification of the Receiver's findings and recommendations. The
state court orders of contempt and the Receiver's speak for
themselves.

The Debtor's contempt for the court system and the judicial system
did not stop with the filing of this bankruptcy proceeding.
Instead, the Debtor's failure to comply with the law has continued
by virtue of the Debtor???s failure to seek and obtain
authorization for its continued use of cash collateral.

Accordingly, it is appropriate for the Court to convert the
proceeding to a chapter 7 or appoint a chapter 11 trustee.

Finally, should the Court determine that it is not appropriate to
either convert the case to a chapter 7 proceeding or appoint a
chapter 11 trustee, Fernandez requests that the Court dismiss the
case with prejudice. The case was filed on the eve of the state
court's ratification of the Receiver's findings. The Debtor has
only filed this proceeding to further delay Fernandez in his
collection efforts. It should be dismissed.

ROSETTA GENOMICS: Incurs US$2.1 Million Net Loss in Second Quarter
------------------------------------------------------------------
Rosetta Genomics Ltd. reported a net comprehensive loss of US$2.07
million on US$870,000 of revenues for the three months ended June
30, 2017, compared to a net comprehensive loss of US$3.39 million
on US$404,000 of revenues for the three months ended June 30,
2016.

For the six months ended June 30, 2017, Rosetta Genomics reported a
net comprehensive loss of US$4.58 million on US$1.61 million of
revenues compared to a net comprehensive loss of US$7.43 million on
US$788,000 of revenues for the same period during the prior year.

As of June 30, 2017, Rosetta Genomics had US$6.20 million in total
assets, US$5.10 million in total liabilities and US$1.09 million in
total shareholders' equity.

During the six-month period ended June 30, 2017, and the year ended
Dec. 31, 2016, the Company incurred operating losses from continued
operation amounting to US$2,904,000 and US$13,184,000 respectively.
The Company will be required to obtain additional liquidity
resources in the near term in order to support its activities.

As of June 30, 2017, the Company's cash position (cash and cash
equivalents and short-term bank deposits) totaled approximately
US$1,325,000.  The Company is addressing its liquidity issues by
implementing initiatives to allow the coverage of budget deficit.
On Sept. 5, 2017, subsequent to the balance sheet date, the Company
announced the implementation of a plan to reduce annual operating
expenses through the reduction in employee and contractor headcount
across several departments as well as expense control across in
various areas of discretionary spending.  The Company's current
operating plan includes various assumptions concerning the level
and timing of cash receipts from sales and cash outlays for
operating expenses and capital expenditures.  The Company's ability
to successfully carry out its business plan is primarily dependent
upon its ability to (1) obtain sufficient additional capital, (2)
attract and retain knowledgeable employees, (3) increase its cash
collections and (4) generate significant additional revenues.  The
Company gives no assurances, however, that it will be successful in
obtaining an adequate level of financing needed for the long-term
development and commercialization of its products.

SEARS CANADA: Seeks Approval of Agreement with Liquidators
----------------------------------------------------------
Sears Canada at a hearing on Oct. 13, 2017, will ask the Ontario
Superior Court of Justice (Commercial List) for approval of the
Amended and Restated Agency Agreement dated as of Oct. 10, 2017,
with a contractual joint venture comprised of Gordon Brothers
Canada ULC, Merchant Retail Solutions ULC, Tiger Capital Group,
LLC, and GA Retail Canada ULC.  The Agreement provides for the
liquidation of Sears Canada's remaining locations, including 74
Full-Line stores and 8 Home Stores.

In July 2017, Sears Canada won approval for the orderly liquidation
of the inventory and furniture, fixtures and other store equipment
("FF&E") at 45 retail store locations which had been identified for
closure at the outset of the CCAA proceedings ("First
Liquidation").

On Aug. 8, 2017, BMO Capital Markets, on behalf of Sears Canada and
with the assistance of the Monitor, commenced a request for
proposal process to solicit proposals from third party liquidators
to assist Sears Canada in the orderly liquidation of inventory and
associated assets, including certain FF&E, located at all leased
and owned store and distribution centre locations that are not
currently being liquidated, excluding dealer-managed and franchisee
stores, through the conduct of "liquidation" or similar themed
sales (Phase II Liquidation).

On Aug. 31,2017 , three sets of proposals were received from
potential liquidators, and all three proposals were subsequently
updated as part of the negotiation process.  After considering all
three of the proposals submitted, the Applicants selected Gordon
Brothers Canada ULC and Merchant Retail Solutions ULC -- Agent --
as the successful bidder.

Following the RFP process, Sears Canada and the Agent negotiated
and executed, subject to Court approval, an agency agreement dated
as of Oct. 7, 2017, pursuant to which the Agent would serve as the
Applicants' exclusive agent and mandatary for the purpose of
disposing of the Merchandise and liquidating the FF&E located in
the Remaining Closing Locations.

On Oct. 10,2017, the Agent provided Sears Canada with notice that
the transactions contemplated by the Agency Agreement would be
syndicated with Tiger Capital Group, LLC and GA Retail Canada ULC.

The Amended and Restated Agency Agreement contemplates the sale of
the Merchandise and FF&E to commence on Oct. 19, 2017 and to
conclude no later than Jan. 21, 2018, or such other dates agreed to
by Sears Canada, the Syndicated Agent, the Monitor and the DIP
Lenders.

                   Terms of Agency Agreement

Mark Caiger, Managing Director of Mergers and Acquisitions at BMO
Nesbitt Burns Inc. operating as BMO Capital Markets, says the
Agent's proposal for the phase II liquidation is economically
superior to the liquidation sale transaction contemplated by the
First Agency Agreement which was approved by the Court for the
First Liquidation Process.

In particular, the Agent's proposal provides that:

    (i) Sears Canada will receive a net minimum guarantee of 83% of
the aggregate Cost Value of the Full-Line Merchandise (as opposed
to 80% under the First Agency Agreement);

   (ii) the Agent's fee is 4% (as opposed to 5% under the First
Agency Agreement);

   (iii) the remaining proceeds of the sale will be shared 25% to
the Agent and 75% to Sears Canada (as opposed to 50% to each under
the First Agency Agreement); and

    (iv) the Agent will receive l5% commission on the proceeds of
all sales of FF&E (as opposed to 17.5% in the First Agency
Agreement).

The Amended and Restated Agency Agreement contemplates the sale of
applicable inventory, sundry goods, and FF&E to commence on Oct.
19, 2017, and to conclude by no later than January 21,2018, or such
other dates agreed to by the Company and the Syndicated Agent, with
the approval of the Monitor and the DIP Lenders.

The Amended and Restated Agency Agreement does not authorize the
Syndicated Agent to supplement or augment the Merchandise during
the Sale Term.

The Amended and Restated Agency Agreement further provides that the
Syndicated Agent will serve as Sears Canada's exclusive agent and
mandatary for the limited purpose of conducting the Sale, disposing
of the Merchandise and liquidating the FF&E in the Remaining
Closing Locations, as well as the FF&E located in Sears Canada's
distribution centers, if Sears Canada so elects.

As a guaranty of the Syndicated Agent's performance in respect of
Full-Line Stores, the Amended and Restated Agency Agreement
provides that Sears Canada shall receive a net minimum guarantee of
83% of the aggregate Cost Value of the Full-Line Merchandise --
Full-Line Guaranteed Amount -- computed in accordance with the
Amended and Restated Agency Agreement and subject to certain
adjustments if: (i) the aggregate Cost Value of the Full-Line
Merchandise is less than $391 million or more than $411 million;
and/or (ii) the Cost Value of the Full-Line Merchandise as a
percentage of the Retail Price of the Merchandise exceeds 52.5%.

As a guaranty of the Syndicated Agent's performance in respect of
Home Stores, the Syndicated Agent guarantees that Sears Canada
shall receive a net minimum guarantee of 52.5% of the aggregate
Cost Value of the Home Store Merchandise (the "Home Store
Guaranteed Amount", and together with the Full-Line Guaranteed
Amount, the "Guaranteed Amount"), computed in accordance with the
Amended and Restated Agency Agreement, and subject to certain
adjustments if: (i) the aggregate Cost Value of the Home Store
Merchandise is less than $9 million or more than $10 million;
and/or (ii) the Cost Value of the Home Store Merchandise as a
percentage of the Retail Price of the Merchandise exceeds 59.9%.

The Amended and Restated Agency Agreement provides that, on the
date that is one business day prior to the Sale Commencement Date,
the Syndicated Agent shall pay to Sears Canada an amount equal to
80% of the estimated Guaranteed Amount with respect to Merchandise
(other than In-Transit Merchandise) and Distribution Center
Merchandise.

To secure the Syndicated Agent's obligations under the Amended and
Restated Agency Agreement, including the obligation to pay the
balance of the Guaranteed Amount and the Expenses, the Syndicated
Agent shall deliver to Sears Canada one or more irrevocable and
unconditional standby letters of credit in the aggregate original
face amount equal to 20% of the estimated Guaranteed Amount, plus
an amount equal to three weeks' estimated Expenses, in accordance
with the terms of the Amended and Restated Agency Agreement. The
face amount of the letter of credit will, upon the Syndicated
Agent's request, be reduced by payments received by Sears Canada on
account of the Guaranteed Amount after the commencement of the Sale
provided that the face amount of the letter of credit will not be
reduced to less than the parties' estimate of three weeks' worth of
Expenses.

SEARS CANADA: Stranzl Still in Talks with Stakeholders
------------------------------------------------------
Mark Caiger, Managing Director of Mergers and Acquisitions at BMO
Nesbitt Burns Inc. operating as BMO Capital Markets, the sale
advisor of Sears Canada Inc., said in a court filing Oct. 10, 2017,
that Brandon Stranzl, Sears Canada, who stepped down as CEO to
submit a going concern offer for the business, continues to have
communications with certain stakeholders regarding a potential
going concern transaction.

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

According to reports, Mr. Stranzl is backed by Blackstone Group LP
and hedge fund manager Vadim Perelman, founder of Los Angeles-based
Baker Street Capital.

On Aug. 31, 2017, BMO and the Monitor received numerous bids and
proposals in connection with the SISP, including a potential going
concern bid for Sears Canada's full line business put forward by
group led by Stranzl, who is Sears Canada's executive chairman.

A revised form of asset purchase agreement was submitted by Stranzl
on Sept. 29, 2017, but a number of critical economic terms
omitted.

On Oct. 3, 2017, the Stranzl Group provided Sears Canada and the
Monitor with updated economic terms for their bid.  These economic
terms reflected the removal of the stores that were subject to
definitive transaction agreements and resulted in less
consideration being offered as part of the going concern bid.  BMO,
Sears Canada, the Monitor and the Special Committee considered
these lower economic terms, along with the conditionality,
execution risk and timing concerns associated with the going
concern bid and the liquidity issues facing Sears Canada.  These
concerns were communicated to the Stranzl Group.  Extensive
consultations with respect to the revised bid were also held with
representatives of the DIP Lenders and the Pension Benefits
Guarantee Fund, as well as Pension Representative Counsel and
Employee Representative Counsel and their financial advisor.

According to Mr. Caiger, it was also necessary to solicit proposals
for a phase II liquidation concurrently with sale and investment
solicitation process ("SISP") to comply with Sears Canada's
obligations under the DIP Credit Agreements (as amended from time
to time), as well as to ensure that any liquidation sale could be
conducted during the December holiday season in order to maximize
recovery for all stakeholders.  On Aug. 31, 2017, three sets of
proposals were received from potential liquidators.  After
considering all three of the proposals submitted, the Applicants
selected Gordon Brothers Canada ULC and Merchant Retail Solutions
ULC (collectively, the "Agent") as the successful bidder.  Sears
Canada and the Agent negotiated and executed, subject to Court
approval, an agency agreement dated as of Oct. 7, 2017 (the "Agency
Agreement"), pursuant to which the Agent would serve as the
Applicants' exclusive agent and mandatary for the purpose of
disposing of the Merchandise and liquidating the FF&E located in
the Remaining Closing Locations.

On Oct. 3, 2017, Sears Canada entered into the Seventh Amendments
to the DIP Credit Agreements to: (i) modify minimum inventory
balance thresholds; and (ii) amend certain milestones which
required the selection of successful bids in the SISP by Sept. 25,
2017 and the commencement of store closure sales for all locations
not the subject of those bids by Sept. 27, 2017.

The Seventh Amendments include these new milestones:

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

   (b) 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 or before
Oct. 7, 2017 (the "Acceptable Liquidation Agreement");

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

   (d) the Acceptable Liquidation Agreement must provide for the
commencement of a liquidation sale at the remaining Sears Canada
locations by Oct. 19,2017 ("Sale Commencement Date"), which date
can be extended to October 26,2017 in the DIP Lenders' discretion.

                           Break-Up Fee

In order to provide Sears Canada with maximum flexibility to
consider to pursue a viable going concern proposal for the business
of Sears Canada, if any, or alternatively, a more favorable
proposal for the liquidation of the inventory and FF&E, if any, the
Special Committee, BMO Nesbitt and the Monitor, after consulting
with the representatives of Sears Canada's unsecured creditors,
determined it was necessary and appropriate to continue to include
a provision in the draft agency agreement which provides Sears
Canada with the ability to terminate the agency agreement upon
payment of a break-fee and reimbursement of certain expenses.

While the Amended and Restated Agency Agreement provides for a
break fee and expense reimbursement, and as such for the
possibility of an alternate going concern transaction materializing
for Sears Canada prior to the Sale Commencement Date, no executable
going concern transaction currently exists, Mr. Caiger said.

The Stranzl Group, according to Mr. Caiger, has requested that its
deposit provided in support of the going concern transaction be
returned, and the Monitor has initiated the return of the deposit.
However, Mr. Caiger understands that Mr. Stranzl continues to have
communications with certain stakeholders regarding a potential
going concern transaction.

The Amended and Restated Agency Agreement provides Sears Canada
with the option of the terminating the agreement, with approval of
the Monitor and the Court: (i) at any time prior to 5:00 p.m. EST
on the date that is one day immediately prior to the Sale
Commencement Date solely for the purpose of (i) a pursuing a going
concern transaction; or (ii) at any time if Sears Canada is
pursuing an alternative liquidation transaction, provided that any
such proposal is received by Sears Canada prior to 5:00 p.m. EST on
Oct. 11, 2017.  In the event that Sears Canada terminates the
Amended and Restated Agency Agreement on the basis on the
foregoing, the Syndicated Agent will be entitled to receive a $2.5
million break fee and certain expense reimbursements up to a
maximum amount of $2.05 million.

Simmons Foods, Inc.

Ratings assigned:

Proposed $550 million second lien notes due 2024 at B3 (LGD4).

Ratings to be withdrawn upon completion of proposed note offering:

$415 million second lien notes due 2021 rated B3 (LGD4).

The rating outlook is stable.

The B3 rating on the senior secured second-lien notes is one notch
below the B2 Corporate Family Rating. This reflects the effective
subordination of these instruments to the company's $275 million
first lien revolving credit facility expiring 2022.

Simmons plans to use proceeds from the offering to repay the $65
million that is outstanding under its revolving credit facility. In
addition, the company will fund a tender offer, also launched, for
its $415 million 7.875% second lien secured notes due 2021, which
are callable as of October 1, 2017. The tender premium being
offered is approximately $29 million. The remaining proceeds will
be used to pay transaction cost and to supplement cash balances.

RATINGS RATIONALE

Simmons' B2 Corporate Family Rating reflects the company's high
sales concentration (over 50%) in the volatile poultry processing
industry and limited free cash flow due to heavy capital spending.
The rating is supported by Simmons' good liquidity, solid and
improving performance in its pet food operations and relatively
stable performance in its chicken processing operations.

The stable outlook reflects Moody's expectation that Simmons will
generate relatively stable overall operating performance and modest
financial leverage over the next 12 to 18 months. These credit
supports are balanced against free cash flow defecits over this
same period due mainly to aggressive investments in capacity
expansion. As a result, Moody's expects that debt/EBITDA will rise
to about 4.5x at closing of the proposed issuance -- no other debt
will be outstanding -- and will decline gradually thereafter
through earnings growth.

An upgrade to Simmons' B2 Corporate Family rating could occur if
the company establishes a track record of stable operating
performance and positive free cash flow, and if debt/EBITDA
approaches 3.0 times. A downgrade could occur if debt/EBITDA is
sustained above 4.5 times or if the company's liquidity
deteriorates.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was that for the
Global Protein and Agriculture Industry published in June 2017.

Simmons Foods, Inc. and affiliates, headquartered in Siloam
Springs, Arkansas, is a vertically integrated poultry processor,
and the largest private label manufacturer of canned pet food in
the United States and Canada. The company generates sales through
three primary business groups: Poultry (59%); Pet Food (34%); and
Protein (7%), which includes Simmons' rendering operations. The
company is principally owned and controlled by members of the
Simmons family. Annual net sales are approximately $1.5 billion.


SIMMONS FOODS: S&P Rates New $550MM 2nd Lien Notes 'B'
------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings affirmed its 'B' corporate credit rating on
Siloam Springs, Ark.-based Simmons Foods Inc. The outlook is
stable.

Simmons Foods Inc. is issuing $550 million in new second-lien notes
to refinance its existing notes, pay down its revolver, and fund
its growth capital expenditure projects over the next three to five
years. Pro-forma leverage for the transaction will exceed 4.5x, but
ongoing EBITDA growth and future free cash flows should allow the
company to meaningfully reduce leverage.

S&P said, "At the same time, we assigned a 'B' issue-level rating
on the company's new $550 million second-lien notes maturing 2024,
with a recovery rating of '4', reflecting our expectation for
average recovery (30%-50%, rounded estimate: 45%) in the event of a
payment default. We will withdraw our issue-level rating on the
company existing second-lien notes at the close of the
transaction.

"We estimate pro-forma reported debt will total $550 million at the
close of the transaction.

"The affirmation reflects our expectation that the company will
steadily improve operating performance, enabling it to reduce
leverage following the new note issuance, which moderately increase
debt balances to fund growth initiatives. Absent any significant
operational missteps associated with its capital expansion
projects, we project the company will be able to reduce leverage
closer to 4x by 2018, as it grows organically and expands capacity
to meet demand in all three segments (poultry, pet food, and
protein). Over the next several years, the company plans to invest
over $500 million in capital growth initiatives, with the largest
outlays anticipated in 2018 (more than $150 million). Against a
favorable poultry industry outlook, underpinned by favorable
pricing, muted feed costs, and a rebounding export market, we
continue to expect the company's poultry segment to benefit from
favorable product mix and pricing. On the pet food side, we expect
demand to remain robust and the expansion of the company's dry and
wet facilities to meet projected pet industry volume growth.
Although the transaction is slightly leveraging, with pro-forma
leverage just over 4.5x, we expect debt to EBITDA to decline to
4.5x by fiscal year end 2017 and then to near 4x by year end 2018,
as expansion projects fuel EBITDA growth.

"The stable outlook reflects our belief that the company's
favorable operating outlook will continue in 2017 and 2018,
enabling debt-to-EBITDA ratio to improve closer to 4x over the next
12 months. We believe low-single-digit organic sales and volume
growth together with muted feed costs in the poultry segment and
growing capacity utilization in the pet food segment, largely
driven by the company's capital expansion projects, will allow the
company to grow its EBITDA margins to over 9% and improve its
credit measures.

"We could consider a higher rating if the company successfully
executes on its capital expansion projects and reduces and sustains
debt to EBITDA near 4x. We believe this could occur if Simmons
achieves most of its projected double-digit EBITDA growth while not
suffering a significant decline in poultry profitability, thereby
leading to a stronger competitive position and higher cash flows so
it can repay debt and sustain lower leverage.  

"We could lower the ratings if debt to EBITDA approaches 6x. We
believe this could occur if the company's profitability declines
from an unexpected increase in costs or revenue declines from a
significant operating setback, such as a large product recall or
temporary  manufacturing disruption related to the company's'
expansion projects. Although less likely over then next year, given
our current favorable outlook for poultry profits, leverage also
could approach 6x if the  poultry segment faces another severe weak
operating cycle (similar to 2012), during which feed costs
significantly increase or chicken prices decline from over
production leading to a more than 20% drop in annual poultry
EBITDA."


SNAP INTERACTIVE: Amends Merger Agreement with LiveXLive
--------------------------------------------------------
On Sept. 6, 2017, Snap Interactive, Inc., LiveXLive Media, Inc.,

the "Closing" will have occurred prior to triggering the Company's
right to terminate the Merger Agreement from Dec. 8, 2017, to
Jan. 3, 2018.

On Oct. 10, 2017, the Company, Buyer, Merger Sub and Mr. Katz
entered into Amendment No. 2 to the Merger Agreement to, among
other things, provide that the Company will prepare and file with
the SEC, and mail to its stockholders, a proxy statement on

Company to be called for the purpose of seeking the approval of the
stockholders of the Company of the Merger Agreement and the Merger,
with the receipt of such approval being a condition to the closing
of the Merger.

In addition, in connection with Amendment No. 2, the Company will
seek to have certain stockholders of the Company enter into a
Voting Agreement with Buyer, pursuant to which such stockholders
would agree, among other things and subject to the terms thereof,
to vote all shares of the common stock of the Company beneficially
owned by such stockholders in favor of the Merger and against
certain matters, including other proposals to acquire the Company.

"We have historically financed our operations through cash
generated from operations.  Currently, our primary source of
liquidity is cash on hand and cash flows from continuing
operations.  As of June 30, 2017, we had $4,614,619 in cash and

"We are focused on reducing costs and increasing profitability
following the Merger and we believe that our cash balance and our
expected cash flow from operations will be sufficient to meet all
of our financial obligations for the twelve months from the filing
date of this Form 10-Q.  It is possible that we would need
additional capital in the future to fund our operations,
particularly growth initiatives, which we expect we would raise
through a combination of equity offerings, debt financings, other
third-party funding and other collaborations and strategic
alliances.  Our future capital requirements will depend on many
factors including our growth rate, headcount, sales and marketing

of new features, products, acquisitions and continued user
engagement.

"Our primary use of working capital is related to user acquisition
costs, including sales and marketing expense and product
development expense.  Our sales and marketing expenditures are
primarily spent on channels where we can estimate the return on
investment without long-term commitments.  Accordingly, we can
adjust our advertising and marketing expenditures quickly based on
the expected return on investment, which provides flexibility and
enables us to manage our advertising and marketing expense.  In
addition, we allocate significant resources to product development
in order to maintain and create new features and products which
will enable a better user experience and increase interactions.

"We are continuously evaluating and implementing cost reduction
initiatives to manage the expense of our operations.  During 2017,
we plan to continue to reduce costs by consolidating vendors
(including office space, payment processing, licensing agreements,
etc.), consolidating advertising affiliate partners, consolidating
internal departments (such as customer service) and by using
incremental offshore product development resources," the Company

SRC ENERGY: Moody's Hikes CFR to B2; Outlook Positive
-----------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service upgraded SRC Energy Inc.'s Corporate
Family Rating (CFR) to B2 from B3, its Probability of Default
Rating (PDR) to B2-PD from B3-PD, and its senior unsecured notes
rating to Caa1 from Caa2. The SGL-3 Speculative Grade Liquidity
(SGL) Rating was affirmed. The rating outlook was changed to
positive from stable.

"The upgrade recognizes SRC Energy's successful execution on its
production growth targets while maintaining low levels of debt and
exhibiting strong credit metrics," commented Moody's Analyst,
Prateek Reddy. "The positive outlook incorporates Moody's
expectations for the maintenance of leverage, cash flow and capital
efficiency metrics that will remain better than many single-B peers
in spite of a likely rise in debt balances to fund an aggressive
capital spending program through 2018."

Issuer: SRC Energy Inc.

Ratings Upgraded:

-- Corporate Family Rating, Upgraded to B2 from B3

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

-- $80 Million Senior Unsecured Notes due 2021, Upgraded to Caa1
    (LGD5) from Caa2 (LGD5)

Ratings Affirmed:

Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating, Affirmed SGL-3

Outlook Action:

Outlook, Changed to Positive from Stable

RATINGS RATIONALE

SRC Energy's B2 CFR reflects the concentration risks associated
with being a pure play Wattenberg Field operator in the
Denver-Julesburg (DJ) Basin. The company's acreage is in areas of
the Wattenberg with substantial ongoing development activity,
leading to insufficient low-cost midstream takeaway capacity and
shut-in production due to high gas-line pressures. The company's
proved-developed reserve life is relatively low and will require an
aggressive capital spending program to grow its reserve base at a
faster pace than its production growth. Consequently, the company's
organic growth will be partially debt-financed using its revolving
credit facility and potentially through subsequent high-yield debt
issuances. The hedging program is small and any unexpected
retrenchment in commodity prices could hurt cash flow generation
and lead to an escalation of debt balances. The B2 rating is
supported by the company's high quality contiguous acreage in the
core of the Wattenberg as well as management's deep knowledge and
experience in the basin. The company's low debt levels and credit
metrics are strong for the single-B rating level and are
attributable to the recent history of using equity in lieu of debt
to fund acquisitions and development activity. Despite the high
likelihood of rising debt balances and the concurrent moderate
deterioration in credit metrics, the company's high quality asset
base will support production and reserve base growth while
maintaining healthy capital efficiency metrics. Additionally,
during the anticipated period of growth and rising debt, the
company is likely to sustain leverage and cash flow based metrics
that align well with B2 and some B1 peers.

The positive rating outlook reflects Moody's expectation that the
company's production will exceed 50,000 barrels of oil equivalent
(boe) per day and proved-developed reserve life will improve
meaningfully by the end of 2018, while maintaining conservative
credit metrics that align well with many B1 rated peers.

SRC Energy's SGL-3 Speculative Grade Liquidity (SGL) Rating
reflects the high likelihood of maintaining an adequate liquidity
profile through the end of 2018. The company had approximately $37
million of cash on its balance sheet (as of June 30, 2017) and $250
million available under its $400 million borrowing base revolving
credit facility that expires in December 2019. Additional revolver
borrowings will fund the anticipated cash flow outspend through the
end of 2018. The company will have ample headroom under the
covenants in the revolving credit facility: a current ratio (1.0x)
and a leverage ratio (Debt-to-EBITDAX of 4.0x). The company can
also generate cash from asset sales or by issuing equity.

SRC Energy's $80 million 9% senior notes due 2021 were upgraded to
Caa1 from Caa2, and remain rated two notches below the B2 CFR,
reflecting the meaningful size of the priority-claim of the secured
revolving credit facility compared to the unsecured debt in the
capital structure.

SRC Energy's ratings could be upgraded if average daily production
rises above 50,000 boe per day while maintaining a leveraged full
cycle ratio (LFCR) comfortably above 1x. Debt-to-proved developed
reserves should also remain below $10 per boe for the ratings to be
upgraded.

Ratings could be downgraded if production growth due to accelerated
spending leads to revolver availability of $75 million or less.
Ratings could be downgraded if proved-developed reserve life
remains below 4 years or the LFCR drops below 1x.

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

SRC Energy Inc. is a Denver, CO-based exploration and production
company with a primary focus in the Greater Wattenberg Field in the
Denver-Julesburg (DJ) Basin in northeast Colorado.

TARGA RESOURCES: Moody's Rates Proposed $750MM Sr. Notes Ba3
------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a Ba3 rating to Targa Resources
Partners LP's (TRP) proposed $750 million notes due 2028. TRP is
wholly owned by Targa Resources Corp. (Targa). Targa and TRP's
other ratings and Targa's stable outlook remained unchanged. The
note proceeds will be used to finance the redemption of TRP's $250
million notes due 2018 and to repay borrowings under its revolver.

Assignments:

Issuer: Targa Resources Partners LP

-- Senior Unsecured Regular Bond/Debenture, Assigned Ba3 (LGD 4)

RATINGS RATIONALE

TRP's proposed and existing senior notes are unsecured and the
creditors have a subordinated claim to TRP's assets behind the
senior secured revolving credit facility and the accounts
receivable securitization facility. Moody's believes the Ba3
rating, one notch below Targa's Ba2 CFR, better reflects the
substantial amount of priority-claim secured debt in the capital
structure and the likelihood of increased use of the revolver than
what is suggested by Moody's Loss Given Default (LGD) methodology.

Targa's Ba2 Corporate Family Rating (CFR) is supported by its sole
ownership of TRP, its scale and EBITDA generation which has
remained sizeable despite the volatile and low commodity prices,
its track record of strong execution of growth projects, and the
meaningful and growing proportion of fee-based margin contribution.
Targa has increased geographic diversification, more recently in
the Permian Basin, and improved business diversification through
acquisitions. Targa is building a 300 Mbbl/day NGL pipeline,
expected to be in service before mid-2019, that will connect the
Permian Basin and its North Texas system to its Mont Belvieu
complex. Its Outrigger acquisition, also in the Permian Basin,
closed in March 2017 and adds over 250,000 acres dedicated under
long-term contracts from a mix of active operators. These positive
attributes are tempered by its material exposure to the gathering
and processing business, weakness in natural gas liquids (NGL)
markets that lowers its earnings on commodity sensitive contracts,
its historically aggressive distribution policies, and volume
risk.

Targa's CFR could be upgraded to Ba1 if consolidated leverage is
sustained below 4.5x, dividend coverage remains above 1.1x, and its
business mix becomes less exposed to commodity price risk. The
ratings could be downgraded if consolidated leverage is over 5.5x.
Significant delays or cost overruns on growth projects could also
pressure the ratings.

Targa Resources Corp., through its wholly-owned subsidiary Targa
Resources Partners LP, operates a portfolio of midstream energy
assets that include, gathering pipelines, gas processing plants,
NGL pipeline, NGL fractionation units, and a marine import/export
facility on the Gulf Coast.

The principal methodology used in this rating was Midstream Energy
published in May 2017.


TARGA RESOURCES: S&P Affirms BB- CCR & Rates $750MM Sr. Notes BB-
-----------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said it affirmed its 'BB-' rating on
Houston-based Targa Resources Corp. The outlook is stable.

Targa Resources Corp. recently announced that it has entered into
an agreement to sell a 25% joint venture interest in its Grand Prix
natural gas liquids (NGL) pipeline to funds managed by Blackstone
Energy Partners. Targa also announced that it has executed a letter
of intent with Kinder Morgan Inc. in which it would own a 25%
interest in the proposed Gulf Coast Express Pipeline Project (GCX)
and would commit significant volumes to the proposed project.

S&P said, "We also affirmed our 'BB-' issue-level rating on the
company's senior unsecured notes and our 'B' issue-level rating on
its structurally subordinated debt. We revised the recovery rating
on the company's senior unsecured notes to '3' from '4', indicating
our expectation of meaningful (50%-70%; rounded estimate: 65%)
recovery in the event of a payment default. The recovery rating on
the company's structurally subordinated debt remains '6',
indicating our expectation of negligible (0%-10%; rounded estimate;
0%) recovery in the event of a payment default.

"The ratings on Targa reflect our view of the company's
satisfactory business risk profile and highly leveraged financial
risk profile. We view the company's credit metrics to be at the low
end of the highly leveraged financial risk profile.

"The stable outlook reflects our expectation that Targa will
increase gathering and processing volumes in 2017, which will
modestly drive cash flow growth. For 2017, we expect the company to
maintain adjusted debt to EBITDA of about 5x while maintaining what
we view as adequate liquidity. In 2018, we expect growth projects
to contribute to cash flow growth. However, we also expect capital
spending to continue to be at high levels to fund a substantial
growth capital expenditure program. We expect the company to fund
its discretionary cash flow shortfall with a balanced mix of debt
and equity.

"We could consider a negative rating action if adjusted debt to
EBITDA approached 6x or distribution coverage was below 1x for an
extended period. This could occur if the company maintained a more
aggressive financial policy, which could include debt-financed
acquisitions.

"We could consider a positive rating action if the company
maintained debt to EBITDA close to 4.5x. This could occur if
industry conditions continued to improve or if the company adopted
a more conservative financial policy."

THERMON GROUP: S&P Assigns 'B+' Corp Credit Rating, Outlook Stable
------------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings assigned its 'B+' corporate credit rating to San
Marcos, Texas-based Thermon Group Holdings Inc. (Thermon). The
outlook is stable.

S&P said, "At the same time, we assigned our 'B+' issue-level
rating and '3' recovery rating to subsidiary Thermon Holding
Corp.'s proposed $250 million secured term loan B due 2024 and
subsidiaries Thermon Holding Corp. and Thermon Canada Inc.'s
proposed $60 million secured revolving credit facility due 2022.
The '3' recovery rating indicates our expectation for meaningful
(50%-70%; rounded estimate: 60%) recovery in the event of
default."

Thermon intends to use proceeds of the proposed term loan to fund
the C$258 million acquisition of CCI Thermal Technologies Inc. The
acquisition is consistent with management's strategy to grow in
adjacent product lines. Thermon primarily manufactures and supplies
products that provide external heat to pipes in process industries.
CCI primarily produces products that heat vessels. The companies
serve similar customers in the oil and gas, chemical, power
generations, and other sectors, which should facilitate
integration.

S&P said, "The stable outlook reflects our expectation that
adjusted debt to EBITDA will quickly drop from above 4x at closing
to the lower end of the 3x-4x range over the next 12 months on
acquisition-related EBITDA contributions and steady to modestly
improving organic growth in key end markets, including the oil and
gas sector.

"We would raise our rating if sales grow more quickly than we
anticipate and the company maintains or improves its above-average
EBITDA margins, causing adjusted debt to EBITDA to fall below 3x
and FFO-to-adjusted debt to climb above 30%. This could occur if
oil prices increase from about $55 per barrel today to, perhaps,
closer to $75 or $100 per barrel. If that were to occur, we would
expect Thermon to win more greenfield business.

"We view a downgrade to be less likely given our cautiously
optimistic view of the U.S., Canadian, and global economies and
expectations for stable oil and gas prices. At this time, the most
likely downside scenario would be a debt-financed acquisition that
lifted adjusted debt to EBITDA above 4x for more than a year
without any clear prospects for improvement."


THERMON HOLDING: Moody's Assigns B2 Corporate Family Rating
-----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned new ratings to Thermon Holding
Corp. (Thermon), including a B2 Corporate Family Rating (CFR) and a
B2-PD Probability of Default Rating (PDR). Concurrently, Moody's
assigned B2 ratings to the company's proposed first lien senior
secured bank credit facilities, including a $60 million revolver
and a $250 million term loan, and a SGL-1 Speculative Grade
Liquidity (SGL) Rating. The rating outlook is stable.

Thermon has signed a definitive agreement to acquire CCI Thermal
Technologies Inc. (CCI Thermal) for $211 million. The proceeds from
the term loan issuance along with $48 million of balance sheet cash
will be used to fund the purchase price, repay the existing $76
million term loan, and fund $11 million of transaction related fees
and expenses. The new $60 million revolver is expected to remain
undrawn at closing.

"Thermon's leverage and cash flow profile position the company
reasonably well in the broad B2 rating category," according to
Moody's Analyst, Prateek Reddy. "Thermon's small scale, exposure to
some stressed end markets and the potential for additional
debt-finance acquisitions constrain the company's ratings," added
Reddy.

The following is a summary of Moody's rating assignments to Thermon
Holding Corp.:

Assignments:

-- Corporate Family Rating, Assigned B2

-- Probability of Default Rating, Assigned B2-PD

-- Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating, Assigned SGL-1

-- Gtd Senior Secured Term Loan, Assigned B2 (LGD3)

-- Senior Secured Revolving Credit Facility, Assigned B2 (LGD3)

Outlook Actions:

-- Outlook, Assigned Stable

RATINGS RATIONALE

Thermon's B2 CFR reflects its small scale and scope relative to the
rated universe of industrial and oilfield service peers. The
company has high exposure to cyclical end markets like the oil &
gas industry that will likely constrain revenue and earnings growth
to only modest levels at least through FYE2019 (fiscal year ends
March 31). Credit metric improvement, including any material
leverage reduction (from Debt-to-EBITDA of 4.2 times pro forma for
the CCI Thermal acquisition), could be temporary. Management's
stated strategy of increasing the scope of the company's offerings
and the size of its addressable market is likely to be fulfilled
with debt-financed acquisitions. However, Thermon's key credit
metrics, including its very good cash flow generation, position the
company well within the B2 rating category, especially since some
of its end markets are just emerging from cyclical troughs. Revenue
visibility is enhanced by the backlog of lower margin greenfield
projects, which typically contribute 35%-40% of total annual
revenue. These subsequently produce a stream of relatively high
margin recurring revenue from maintenance, overhaul and repair
(MRO) as well as upgrades and expansion (UE) projects. The
acquisition of CCI Thermal benefits the company's business profile
by further enhancing its already good geographic, end market and
customer base diversification.

The stable outlook reflects Moody's expectations of low
single-digit percentage revenue growth and maintenance of EBITDA
margins at least through the end of FY2019. Absent material
debt-funded acquisitions, leverage should gradually improve to
approach 3.5 times as earnings grow and free cash flow is applied
to reduce term borrowings.

The SGL-1 Speculative Grade Liquidity (SGL) Rating reflects
Thermon's very good liquidity profile supported by $40 million of
cash, a revolver with availability of about $55 million (after $5
million of letters of credit) pro forma for the CCI Thermal
acquisition, a high likelihood of ample headroom under the proposed
covenants, and some flexibility to generate alternate liquidity
through the sale of foreign assets.

The B2-PD PDR is in line with the B2 CFR, reflecting Moody's
expectation for an average family recovery level in a distress
scenario. The expectation for an average family recovery reflects
the deemed covenant light nature of the debt capital structure
despite the all-bank debt structure. The associated lack of
protection for term loan creditors is reflected in their inability
to accelerate claims under a default scenario and preserve an
otherwise higher enterprise value. The $60 million revolver and the
$250 million term loan form the preponderance of the company's debt
capital and are each rated B2 (LGD3), in line with the B2 CFR.
Their ratings incorporate the first lien priority claim of these
credit facilities on all US subsidiaries of the company and a stock
pledge of 65% of foreign subsidiaries.

Thermon's ratings could be downgraded if revenue declines or
Debt-to-EBITDA rises above 5 times. A deterioration in liquidity
reflected by minimal free cash flow generation and sustained usage
of the revolver could also result in the ratings being downgraded.

Ratings could be upgraded if Thermon's scale increases with EBITDA
rising above $100 million and Debt-to-EBITDA sustained below 3.5
times.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Global Oilfield
Services Industry Rating Methodology published in May 2017.

Headquartered in San Marcos, TX, Thermon's products provide an
external heat source to pipes, vessels and instruments for the
purposes of freeze protection, temperature maintenance,
environmental monitoring and surface snow and ice melting. Thermon
is acquiring CCI Thermal, a provider of an assortment of brands in
the process heating space where Thermon does not currently
participate.


TMT USA: Court Approves Latest Disclosures; Dec. 27 Plan Hearing
----------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Marvin Isgur of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of Texas approved TMT Procurement Corporation and its
debtor affiliates' latest disclosure statement for their proposed
lender settlement plan of liquidation, dated Sept. 27, 2017.

The deadline for electronically filing and serving objections to
Confirmation of the Plan is Nov. 22, 2017, at 3:00 p.m. Central
Time.

The hearing on Confirmation of the Plan will commence on Dec. 12,
2017, at 9:00 a.m. Central Time before the Honorable Marvin Isgur,
U.S. Bankruptcy Judge, in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of Texas, Houston Division, 515 Rusk Street,
Houston, Texas 77002.

The latest filing provides that the Su Parties failed to accept the
Proposed Su Parties Settlement by the deadline of Sept. 25, 2017,
and, therefore, the Debtors have withdrawn the Proposed Su Parties
Settlement. However, the Plan still includes the Proposed Su
Parties Settlement because is possible, although unlikely, that the
Debtors in their discretion will permit the Su Parties to accept
the Proposed Su Parties Settlement at a later date. If the Debtors
do exercise such discretion, however, it is highly likely that the
offered settlement amount will be lower than $1,000,000, because it
is highly unlikely that the Debtors will offer the same total
settlement consideration in light of the ongoing litigation
expenses with the Su Parties.

Procurement Corporation.

The cases of TMT Shipmanagement LLC, (Case No. 13-33740), and F
Elephant Corporation, (Case No. 13-33749).

TMT filed a lawsuit in U.S. bankruptcy court aimed at forcing
creditors to release the vessels so they can return to generating
income.

Judge Marvin Isgur presides over the case.  TMT tapped attorneys
from Bracewell & Giuliani LLP as bankruptcy counsel, and
AlixPartners as financial advisors.

The U.S. Trustee, in July 2013, appointed an official committee to
represent the interests of all unsecured creditors.  The Committee
consists of China Shipping Car Carrier; Hyundai Samho Heavy
Industries Co., Ltd.; KPI Bridge Oil Limited and KPI Bridge Oil
Singapore Pte Ltd; Omega Bunker S.R.L.; China Ocean Shipping Agency
Shanghai, d/b/a Penavico Shanghai; Songa Shipping Pte, Ltd.; and
Universal Marine Service Co., Ltd.  In addition, Scandinavian
Bunkering AS was appointed as an alternate, non-voting member of
the Committee.

The Committee retained Kelley, Drye & Warren LLP as its principal
investigation/litigation counsel, Seward & Kissel LLP as its
principal bankruptcy/restructuring/maritime counsel, and FTI
Consulting as its financial advisor.  The Bankruptcy Court
permitted Seward & Kissel to withdraw as Committee counsel on April
2, 2015.

An Examiner was appointed to review Estate Professional Fees and to
provide a report as to the Non-Debtor Affiliate Avoidance Actions.

                Prior Filed Plans

Handy Debtors -- AHC, BHC, and CHC -- confirmed a joint plan of
reorganization on April 8, 2014.  However, the "effective date"
under the joint plan did not occur and, the plan was terminated,
followed by the sale of the Vessels owned by AHC, BHC, and CHC.

Mr. Su, on July 2, 2014, filed plans of reorganization for BWAC,
GWAC, and HWAC.  The plans could not proceed, however, because the
Vessels owned by BWAC, GWAC and HWAC were sold shortly after the
Plans were filed.

The Debtors, on April 10, 2015, filed two joint plans of
reorganization.  Proceedings on the plans and related disclosure
were postponed and, ultimately, the Debtors withdrew the plan.

As a result of the 2017 Mediation, the Debtors filed the Su Parties
Settlement Plan, which incorporated a settlement in principle among
the Debtors, the Committee, and the Su Parties.  The Debtors and
the Committee, in the exercise of their business judgment and their
fiduciary duties, decided not to pursue the Su Parties Settlement
Plan.


TOYS CANADA: Asks for Extension of Stay Period Until January 2018
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Toys "R" Us (Canada) Ltd. is asking the Ontario Superior Court of
Justice (Commercial List) to extend through and including Jan. 19,
2018, of the stay of proceedings and enforcement processes against
it pursuant to Canada's Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act.

On Sept. 19, 2017, Toys Canada sought and obtained protection from
its creditors under the CCAA.  The Ontario Court entered an order
("Initial Order") granting a stay of proceedings or enforcement
processes against Toys Canada until and including Oct. 19, 2017.
The Court also authorized Toys Canada to access DIP financing to
fund operations.

Grant Thornton, the monitor appointed in the CCAA case, said in its
first report filed Oct. 10, 2017, that since the commencement of
the CCAA proceedings, Toys Canada, its financial advisor, the
monitor and their respective legal counsel have focused on
maintaining the stability of the Canadian business, communicating
with stakeholders, and addressing matters relating to the
initiation of the CCAA proceedings.  Toys Canada is now completing
its seasonal inventory build and will turn to focus on operating
the business during the holiday season in which it generates 40% of
its annual revenue.

Management has continued to operate the business in the normal
course subject to the limitations imposed by the effects of the
CCAA proceeding.  The Monitor also understand that Toys Canada is
in the early stages of exploring restructuring options and
alternatives in collaboration with the larger Toys "R" Us group.
In the Monitor's view, Toys Canada has acted in accordance with the
Initial Order.  Accordingly, the Monitor is satisfied that: (i)
Toys Canada has sufficient funds (as demonstrated in its cash flow
projection) to continue operations and the CCAA proceedings until
Jan. 19, 2018; (ii) Management and Toys Canada are acting in good
faith and with due diligence, and (iii) no stakeholder of Toys
Canada will suffer material prejudice if the stay period is
extended as requested by Toys Canada.

TOYS CANADA: Has Reached Terms with Majority of Suppliers
---------------------------------------------------------
Since the commencement of its CCAA proceedings, a primary focus for
Toys "R" Us (Canada) Ltd., has been to ensure the uninterrupted
supply of goods and services in the critical period leading up to
the holiday shopping season.

During the holidays, Toys Canada typically earns 40% of its annual
revenue -- approximately $400 million of $1 billion in annual
sales.

Grant Thornton, the monitor appointed in the CCAA case, said in its
first report filed Oct. 10, 2017, that Toys Canada has been
successful in reaching go-forward trade terms with the majority of
its suppliers.

Paragraph 7(g) of the Initial Order permitted Toys Canada, with the
consent of the Monitor and subject to the DIP Definitive DIP
Documents, to pay amounts owing for goods or services supplied to
Toys Canada period to the date of the Initial Order by:

   (i) logistics or supply chain providers, including
transportation providers, customs brokers and freight forwarders,
fuel providers, repair, maintenance and parts providers, warehouse
providers and security and armoured truck carriers, and including
amounts payable in respect of customs and duties for goods;

  (ii) providers of information, internet and other technology,
including ecommerce providers and related services;

(iii) providers of credit, debit, gift card or other payment
processing and related services; and

  (iv) other third party suppliers if, in the opinion of Toys
Canada following consultation with the Monitor, such payment is
necessary to maintain the uninterrupted operations of the
Business.

The Initial Order signed by the Ontario Court permitted Toys Canada
to obtain a US$200 million term loan and a revolving credit
facility of up to US$300 million (subject to availability under the
Canadian borrowing base).  As of Oct. 4, 207, Toys Canada owed
US$200 million under the Canadian DIP Term Loan and has drawn
CDN$35 million under the Canadian DIP Revolving Facility.  The
Canadian DIP Term Lon and a portion of the Canadian DIP Revolving
Facility were used to fully repay Toys Canada's obligation under
the existing Canadian ABL Credit Facility and to obtain additional
liquidity for the operation of the business.

During the two weeks ended Sept. 30, 2017, total cash receipts were
CA$31.975 million, which is CA$3.803 million greater than projected
due to better than anticipated sales performance.  Total
disbursements were $27.939 million, which were $25.6 million less
than projected, due largely to a timing difference as a reuslt of
engaging with suppliers and post-filing supply terms.

During the period Oct. 2, 2017 to Jan. 20, 2018, Toys Canada
projects total receipts of $467.5 million and total operating
disbursements of $486.7 million, including $350.1 million related
to merchandise purchases for the holiday season.  The Company
expects a net cash outflow of $29.3 million during the period.

As of Aug. 26, 2017, Toys Canada had assets with a book value of
$478 million and liabilities of $380 million.

VINE OIL: Moody's Rates Proposed $530MM Sr. Unsec. Notes Caa2
-------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a Caa2 rating to Vine Oil & Gas
LP's (Vine) proposed offering of $530 million senior unsecured
notes due 2023. The proceeds from the proposed offering will be
used to repay the $350 million senior secured Term Loan C facility
in its entirety and partially repay the $400 million senior secured
Term Loan B facility and outstanding borrowings under the revolving
credit facility. Moody's also changed Vine's rating outlook to
positive from stable.

Concurrently, Moody's affirmed Vine's Caa1 Corporate Family Rating
(CFR) and its Probability of Default Rating (PDR) at Caa1-PD.
Additionally, Moody's upgraded Vine's Term Loan B rating to Caa1
from Caa2. Moody's will withdraw the Caa3 Term Loan C rating after
the issuance of the unsecured notes and the planned full repayment
of Term Loan C is completed. Moody's upgraded Vine's Term Loan B
rating to Caa1 from Caa2 due to the change in Vine's capital
structure with the addition of senior unsecured notes.

"Vine's outlook change reflects the company's continued production
growth and modestly improved proved developed reserves scale, while
the issuance of unsecured notes modestly reduces interest expense
and extends the maturity profile without materially increasing the
debt burden on the company" commented Sreedhar Kona, Moody's Senior
Analyst. "Further improvement in Vine's debt to proved developed
reserves ratio would be supportive of a ratings upgrade."

Debt List:

Assignments:

Issuer: Vine Oil & Gas, LP

-- $530 million senior unsecured notes due 2023, Assigned Caa2
    (LGD5)

Upgrades:

Issuer: Vine Oil & Gas, LP

-- Senior Secured Bank Credit Facility Term Loan B, Upgraded to
    Caa1 (LGD3) from Caa2 (LGD4)

Affirmations:

Issuer: Vine Oil & Gas, LP

-- Corporate Family Rating, Affirmed Caa1

-- Probability of Default Rating, Affirmed Caa1-PD

Outlook Actions:

Issuer: Vine Oil & Gas, LP

-- Outlook, Changed To Positive from Stable

Ratings Unchanged, to be withdrawn at close:

Issuer: Vine Oil & Gas, LP

-- Senior Secured Bank Credit Facility Term Loan C, rated Caa3
    (LGD5)

RATINGS RATIONALE:

The Caa2 rating on the proposed $530 million senior unsecured
notes, one notch below the Caa1 CFR, reflects its effective
subordination to Vine's $150 million superpriority loan, $350
million senior secured revolving credit facility and the $400
million senior secured credit facility Term Loan B, under Moody's
Loss Given Default (LGD) Methodology. The upgrade of Term Loan B's
rating to Caa1 is the result of the issuance of a substantial
amount of unsecured debt subordinated to Term Loan B. Term Loan B
also benefits from upstream guarantees and security in
substantially all the assets of Vine. However, Term Loan B is
contractually subordinated to Vine's $150 million superpriority
loan and the $350 million revolving credit facility, which benefit
from a higher priority lien on the collateral.

Vine's positive outlook reflects its rising production and
improving cashflow metrics. In the first two quarters of 2017, Vine
averaged approximately 45 MBoe per day of production and that is
expected to rise further by year-end 2017, a significant
improvement over its 2016 average daily production of approximately
37 MBoe per day. Retained cash flow to debt in the first two
quarters of 2017 averaged above 8% and is projected to rise above
10% for full year 2017. For 2016 Vine's retained cash flow to debt
ratio was approximately 6%. Moody's expects Vine's proved developed
reserves balance to increase as Vine develops its acreage through
significant capital expenditure.

Vine's Caa1 CFR incorporates its current production level, weak
cash flow based credit metrics and adequate liquidity. Vine's
improved liquidity reinforced its ability to grow production by
further developing its acreage. The company's cash flow metrics are
expected to improve supported by its strong hedge book that
provides substantial certainty of cashflows through 2017 and 2018.
Vine's ratings are constrained by its low level of proved developed
(PD) reserves and high financial leverage as measured by the debt
to PD reserves ratio. Vine's debt to PD reserves ratio was above
$30 per boe at the end of second quarter 2017. The onerous payments
tied to the midstream gathering liabilities associated with Vine's
minimum volume commitments also constrain the ratings.

Vine's liquidity profile is adequate reflecting its cashflow
support from strong hedges, high reliance on its revolver and
ability to maintain covenant compliance. As of June 30, 2017, Vine
had a cash balance of approximately $33 million and $97 million
availability under its $350 million borrowing base revolving credit
facility due in November 2019. The issuance of unsecured notes and
the subsequent partial repayment of the outstanding borrowings
under the revolver will increase the availability under its
revolving credit facility. Roughly 90% of Vine's 2017 expected
production and approximately 92% of 2018 expected production is
hedged. Moody's expects Vine to use its balance sheet cash,
operating cash flow and revolver borrowings to meet its cash needs
including capital expenditures through 2018. Maintenance financial
covenants are limited to a Debt to EBITDA covenant of 3.0x that
only includes revolver drawings and the superpriority loan balance.
Moody's expects the company to maintain strong cushion under the
covenant for future compliance through 2018.

Vine's ratings could be upgraded if it grows its reserve base
resulting in a debt to PD reserves ratio of less than $20 per boe,
while increasing its retained cashflow to debt ratio towards 15%
and maintaining adequate liquidity.

The ratings could be downgraded if the company's liquidity worsens,
or if the company is unable to execute on its development and
production growth plans.

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

Headquartered in Plano, Texas, Vine Oil & Gas LP (Vine) is a
natural gas-focused independent exploration and production company
formed in 2014, in partnership with its private equity sponsor, The
Blackstone Group L.P. (Blackstone).


VINE OIL: S&P Rates New $530MM Sr. Unsecured Notes 'CCC+'
---------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings affirmed its 'B' long-term corporate credit
rating on Vine Oil & Gas L.P. and revised the outlook to stable
from negative.

U.S.-based oil and gas exploration and production (E&P) company
Vine Oil & Gas L.P. is planning to issue $530 million of senior
unsecured notes due 2023 to fully repay its term loan C and
partially repay its term loan B and revolving credit facility.

S&P said, "We also assigned our 'CCC+' issue-level rating to the
company's proposed $530 million senior unsecured notes. The
recovery rating on this debt is '6', reflecting our expectation for
minimal recovery (0% to 10%; rounded estimate: 0%) in the event of
a payment default.

"We also affirmed our 'CCC+' issue-level rating on the company's
term loan B. The recovery on this loan remains '6', reflecting our
expectation for minimal recovery (0% to 10%; rounded estimate: 0%)
in the event of a payment default.

"The outlook revision reflects our expectation of stronger
liquidity pro forma for the issuance, as well as our forecasts of
improving debt metrics under our revised, higher growth production
assumptions for the company.

"The stable outlook on Vine Oil & Gas L.P. reflects our expectation
that the proposed notes issuance will strengthen liquidity and that
credit ratios will improve as the company grows production and cash
flows. We expect FFO to debt to strengthen to about 20% on average
over the next two years.

"We could lower the rating if we expected FFO/debt to fall well
below 12% or debt/EBITDA to exceed 5x with no near-term remedy, or
if liquidity deteriorated. This would most likely occur if the
company spent more than currently anticipated, while failing to
meet its production growth targets.

"We could consider an upgrade if we revised our assessment on
Vine's financial policy. Alternatively, we would consider an
upgrade if the company continues to improve its operational
performance such that the scale of its reserves and production are
more consistent with the business risk profile of 'B+' rated peers
(including increasing the content of its proved developed reserves,
geographic diversity or reducing exposure to natural gas), while
maintaining adequate liquidity and FFO/debt above 20%."

quarter (4Q) 2016 calculation, and with the expected 0.5x step-down
in 1Q 2017 per the Credit Agreement.

WJA ASSET: Exclusive Plan Filing Deadline Moved to Jan. 2018
------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Scott C. Clarkson of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Central District of California has extended, at the behest of WJA
Asset Management, LLC, and its affiliated debtors, the exclusive
period for each Debtor to file a Chapter 11 plan to Jan. 18, 2018,
as well as the exclusive period for each Debtor to solicit
acceptances to the plan to April 18, 2018.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on Sept. 20, 2017, the
Debtors sought the extension, telling the Court that Howard
Grobstein, their Chief Restructuring Officer, and his team are
reconciling the Debtors' books and records, which he discovered
were inaccurate and incomplete in many material respects.  In
furtherance of the reconciliation process, the Debtors are also in
the process of obtaining documents from third party sources to the
extent that the Debtors' books and records are incomplete.

So you think you know the profile of the average consumer
debtor: either deadbeat slouched on a sagging sofa with a three-
day growth on his chin or a crafty lower-middle class type
opting for bankruptcy to avoid both poverty and responsible debt
repayment.

Except that it might be a single or divorced female who's the
one most likely to file for personal bankruptcy protection, and
her petition might be the last stage of a continuum of crises
that began with her job loss or divorce. Moreover, the dilemma
might be attributable in part to consumer credit industry that
has increased its profitability by relaxing its standards and
extending credit to almost anyone who can scribble his or her
name on an application.

Such are among the unexpected findings in this painstaking study
of 2,400 bankruptcy filings in Illinois, Pennsylvania, and Texas
during the seven-year period from 1981 to 1987. Rather than
relying on case counts or gross data collected for a court's
administrative records, as has been done elsewhere, the authors
use data contained in the actual petitions. In so doing, they
offer a unique window into debtors' lives.

The authors conclude that people who file for bankruptcy are, as
a rule, neither impoverished families nor wily manipulators of
the system. Instead, debtors are a cross-section of America. If
one demographic segment can be isolated as particularly debt-
prone, it would be women householders, whom the authors found
often live on the edge of financial disaster. Very few debtors
(3.7 percent in the study) were repeat filers who might be
viewed as abusing the system, and most (70 percent in the study)
of Chapter 13 cases fail and become Chapter 7s. Accordingly, the
authors conclude that the economic model of behavior -- which
assumes a petitioner is a "calculating maximizer" in his in his
decision to seek bankruptcy protection and his selection of
chapter to file under, a profile routinely used to justify
changes in the law -- is at variance with the actual debtor
profile derived from this study.

A few stereotypes about debtors are, however, borne out. It is
less than surprising to learn, for example, that most debtors
are simply not as well-off as the average American or that while
bankrupt's mortgage debts are about average, their consumer
debts are off the charts. Petitioners seem particularly
susceptible to the siren song of credit card companies. In the
study sample, creditors were found to have made between 27
percent and 36 percent of their loans to debtors with incomes
below $12,500 (although the loans might have been made before
the debtors' income dropped so low). Of course, the vigor with
which consumer credit lenders pursue their goal of maximizing
profits has a corresponding impact on the number of bankruptcy
filings.

The book won the ABA's 1990 Silver Gavel Award. A special 1999
update by the authors is included exclusively in the Beard Book
reprint edition.


                            *********

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

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

then-ending.
