              About 952-956 Intervale Realty Corp.

952-956 Intervale Realty is the owner of two residential buildings
located at 952-956 Intervale Avenue, Bronx, New York. The two
buildings have a total of twenty-eight units. The buildings are
subject to the rent stabilization laws. The Debtor failed to pay
its real estate taxes, which led to New York City obtaining a tax
lien against the Debtor's real estate.

Subsequently, the tax lien was sold and after several years went
into foreclosure. A judgment of foreclosure and sale has been
entered. The Debtor was unable to negotiate a satisfactory payment
plan to avoid a foreclosure sale and, therefore, was compelled to
file for Chapter 11. The Debtor has one unsecured claim: Horizon
Planning Service Ltd., POB 118, Plainview, NY 1108, for $7,645 on
account of property insurance.

952-956 Intervale Realty Corp., based in Bronx, NY, filed a Chapter

Esq., serves as bankruptcy counsel.

$1.61 million in liabilities. The petition was signed by Rafael
Cepeda, its vice president.

asking approval of (i) the litigation settlement with Dr. Atif
Malik; and (ii) the Asset Purchase Agreement with Advanced Pain
Management, LLC in connection with the sale of substantially all
assets of the Debtors in exchange for the assumption of all
accounts payable incurred after execution of the APA.

A hearing on the Motion was held on Oct. 23, 2017.

The Sherklar Estate raised an objection to the Motion over what it
considers to be insufficient notice of the Motion and the hearing.
The record reflects that the Trustee has made numerous efforts to
inform creditors about the Motion and the hearing.  Nevertheless,
for the reasons stated on the record, the Court concluded that the
Trustee should give creditors additional notice of the Motion and
hearing, which has been rescheduled to the date and time as
provided in the Order.

The hearing on the Motion and any objections will be held on Oct.
31, 2017, at 11:00 a.m.  Objection deadline is Oct. 30, 2017.

By close of business on Oct. 24, 2017, the Trustee must serve
notice of the rescheduled hearing on the Motion and the revised
objection deadline to all creditors and non-debtor parties to
executory contracts, and file a certificate of service of the same.


The notice must also describe: (i) what effect the proposed sale of
the Debtors' businesses by the Trustee will have on any retirement
plans covering the Debtors' employees or beneficiaries, or on
claims the retirement plan(s) may have against the debtors; (ii)
the interrelationship between the Buyer and the Debtors, including
any overlap in ownership and management; and (iii) the Trustee's
estimate of the range of collections of the Debtors' accounts
receivable that are being retained by the estate and not being sold
in the proposed transaction.

operating results for the third quarter ended Sept. 30, 2017.

Net income for the three months ended Sept. 30, 2017, was $282
million, compared to net income of $209 million for the third
quarter of 2016, as higher provision for loan losses and
noninterest expense were more than offset by increases in net
financing revenue.  Additionally, net income in the third quarter
of 2016 was impacted by a one-time charge to discontinued
operations.

Net financing revenue, including $18 million of Original Issue
Discount expense, improved to $1,081 million, up $85 million from a
year ago, driven by the expansion of retail loan and commercial
margins as well as higher investment securities balances.

Net interest margin of 2.74%, including OID of 4 bps, increased 5
bps year-over-year.  Excluding OID, NIM was 2.78%, improving 5 bps
year-over-year, as a result of higher loan yields.

Other revenue decreased $7 million year-over-year largely due to
lower investment gains.

Provision for loan losses increased $56 million year-over-year and
was impacted by a 10 bps increase in the retail auto coverage ratio
primarily due to higher future expected losses associated with the
hurricanes experienced in the third quarter.

Noninterest expense increased $18 million from a year ago, driven
by expenses related to the growth of consumer and commercial
products.

Auto originations for the quarter totaled $8.1 billion, down from
$9.3 billion a year ago, given the continued focus on risk-adjusted
returns.

Ally Chief Executive Officer Jeffrey Brown commented on the
financial results:

"In the third quarter, Ally delivered strong operational and
financial results and had important positive developments on the
regulatory front, including normalization of regulatory capital
requirements at our banking subsidiary.  We can now move forward on
a level playing field with other banks and more fully optimize our
capital and funding structure."

"We posted the highest revenue and Adjusted EPS since our IPO,
driven by expanding retail and commercial margins and growing
deposit balances.  The deposit franchise continues to perform well,
with total deposits of $90 billion, up $14 billion year-over-year,
while retail deposits increased by $3.8 billion
quarter-over-quarter, the highest quarterly retail deposit growth
in our history."

"We continue to navigate the cyclical dynamics within auto finance,
while driving higher risk-adjusted returns on new originations and
maintaining credit discipline.  Our mortgage and wealth management
businesses continue to develop as we elevate Ally's banking
franchise in the marketplace and deepen customer relationships.  We
remain in a strong position to drive shareholder value and deliver
long-term earnings growth."

                  Discussion of Segment Results

Auto Finance

Pre-tax income of $300 million was $19 million lower
year-over-year.  Results reflect higher net financing revenue and
other revenue, more than offset by higher provision for loan
losses, primarily driven by reserve build to cover higher future
expected losses associated with hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

Net financing revenue was approximately $17 million higher
year-over-year as increases in retail and commercial revenue were
partially offset by the continued decline in operating lease assets
and corresponding lower net lease revenue.  The net lease yield
increased 27 bps quarter-over-quarter to 6.90%, but decreased 35
bps year-over-year.

Provision for loan losses was $46 million higher
quarter-over-quarter, driven by seasonally higher net charge-offs,
and up $42 million year-over-year, largely due to increased
reserves for higher future expected losses associated with the
hurricanes experienced in the third quarter.

Consumer originations of $8.1 billion included $3.6 billion of used
volume, $3.6 billion of new retail volume, and $0.9 billion of
leases.  Estimated retail auto originated yieldA increased to
6.27%, up 37 bps year-over-year.

Auto earning assets decreased $1.5 billion year-over-year to $112.0
billion as growth in the retail auto portfolio was outpaced by
declines in operating lease assets.  Commercial earning assets of
$36.0 billion were flat year-over-year and decreased $2.8 billion
quarter-over-quarter, given seasonality and lower dealer inventory
levels.

Insurance

Pre-tax income was $69 million in the quarter, up $13 million
versus the prior year quarter, as lower investment income was
offset by higher revenue earned, lower vehicle service contract
losses, and lower weather losses, which benefited from the
reinsurance policy established in April 2017.

Written premiums were up $20 million year-over-year at $272
million, due to growth in F&I and vehicle inventory insurance
written premiums.

Total investment income, including gains, was $32 million, down $4
million from the prior year period, and up $5 million
quarter-over-quarter.

Corporate Finance

Pre-tax income was $22 million in the quarter, compared to $15
million in the prior year period.

Net financing revenue increased $9 million year-over-year to $39
million, driven by strong asset growth.  Total assets increased
$0.5 billion year-over-year from $3.2 billion to $3.7 billion.    

Noninterest expense increased $3 million year-over-year to support
strong asset growth and expansion into new industry verticals.    

A Estimated retail auto originated yield is a non-GAAP financial
measure.

Mortgage Finance

Pre-tax income was $2 million in the quarter, compared to $8
million in the prior year period.  Net financing revenue was up $7
million year-over-year to $32 million, with total assets up $1.9
billion in the past year driven primarily by bulk mortgage
purchases.

Noninterest expense increased $12 million year-over-year as the
result of asset growth and the expansion of the direct-to-consumer
mortgage product, which launched in the fourth quarter of 2016.

Provision for loan losses was up $3 million quarter-over-quarter
and $3 million year-over-year, due to specific hurricane-related
reserves and asset growth.

                   Liquidity, Capital & Deposits

Capital

Ally paid a $0.12 per share quarterly common dividend and executed
$190 million of share repurchases, including shares
withheld-to-cover income taxes related to employee stock ownership
plans. Ally's Board of Directors approved a $0.12 per share common
dividend for the fourth quarter of 2017.

Preliminary fully phased-in Basel III Common Equity Tier 1 (CET1)
capital ratioB increased from 9.4% to 9.6% quarter-over-quarter as
a result of lower risk-weighted assets given lower commercial
balances, as well as continued profitability and deferred tax asset
utilization.

Liquidity & Funding

Consolidated cash and cash equivalents of $4.4 billion at
quarter-end was flat compared to $4.4 billion at the end of the
second quarter.  Ally had $0.3 billion of institutional unsecured
debt maturities in the quarter and paid down $1.25 billion of
unsecured credit facilities.

U.S. auto term securitizations totaled approximately $1.0 billion
for the quarter.  Additionally, during the quarter, Ally renewed
approximately $2.6 billion in secured credit facilities.

Approximately 79% of Ally's total assets were funded at Ally Bank
in the third quarter.

Deposits now represent approximately 61% of Ally's funding
portfolio, excluding OID, improving from 54% a year ago.

Deposits

Retail deposits were up a record $3.8 billion quarter-over-quarter
to $74.9 billion with total deposits of $90.1 billion at
quarter-end, up $3.9 billion for the quarter and up $14.4 billion
year-over-year.

The average retail deposit rate was 1.23% for the quarter, up 13
bps year-over-year and up 11 bps quarter-over-quarter.

Ally's retail deposit customer base grew 16% year-over-year,
totaling nearly 1.4 million customers at quarter-end, while adding
more than 52 thousand customers over the prior quarter.  Average
customer balance ended the quarter at $54.5 thousand.  Millennials
continue to comprise the largest generation segment of new
customers at 53%.

Ally Financial to stable from positive and affirmed the 'BB+'

weakening credit conditions in the vehicle finance industry, in our
view, which represents the majority of Ally's business," said S&P
Global Ratings credit analyst Matthew Carroll.

ANDEAVOR LOGISTICS: Moody's Hikes CFR to Ba1; Outlook Positive
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service upgraded Andeavor Logistics LP's (ANDX)
Corporate Family Rating (CFR) to Ba1 from Ba2. Moody's also
upgraded the company's existing senior unsecured notes ratings to
Ba2 from Ba3. The Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating was affirmed
at SGL-3. The rating outlook was maintained at positive. At the
same time, Moody's upgraded Western Refining Logistics, LP's (WNRL)
CFR and unsecured notes to Ba1 and Ba2, respectively, and will
withdraw the ratings following the close of its merger with ANDX
and repayment of its debt.

"Andeavor Logistics' upgrade reflects the company's strong
execution on its growth capital spending, increasing cash flow and
improved geographic reach and customer diversification," commented
Arvinder Saluja, Moody's Vice President. "Moreover, the concurrent
buy in of Andeavor's (ANDV, Baa3 stable) incentive distribution
rights (IDRs) in exchange for partnership units will simplify the
consolidated corporate structure and better position Andeavor
Logistics for future growth."

Upgrades:

Issuer: Andeavor Logistics LP

-- Probability of Default Rating, Upgraded to Ba1-PD from Ba2-PD

-- Corporate Family Rating, Upgraded to Ba1 from Ba2

-- Senior Unsecured Regular Bond/Debentures, Upgraded to Ba2

Issuer: Western Refining Logistics, LP

-- Corporate Family Rating, Upgraded to Ba1 from B1 under review

Affirmations:

Issuer: Western Refining Logistics, LP

RATINGS RATIONALE

ANDX's Ba1 CFR reflects the improved scale and geographic reach of
the combined entity, a more diverse customer mix, its moderate debt
leverage and the elimination of uncertainty regarding ANDV's plans
for the management of the two master limited partnerships (MLPs).
ANDX's CFR also reflects its stable cash flow from meaningful
levels of long-term, fee-based contracts with minimum volume
commitments, and the growth potential from further asset dropdowns
and organic projects. The concurrent buy in of ANDV's IDRs will
simplify the combined entities' corporate structure. ANDX's ratings
recognize its importance to ANDV, as the MLP provides critical
infrastructure to ANDV's core refining operations and a coordinated
growth strategy. Additional support from ANDV is derived from
supportive contract structures and its sizeable ownership stake in
ANDX. The rating is restrained by ANDX's relatively short track
record of owning/operating assets generating third-party revenues,
volumetric risk in its gathering and processing segment, high
distributions associated with its MLP structure, and modest
execution risk pertaining to integration of WNRL.

ANDX expects to close on the acquisition of WNRL on October 30 in
an all-units transaction valued at approximately $1.8 billion,
including WNRL's $300 million of 7.5% senior notes. The notes will
be refinanced under ANDX's $1.6 billion secured credit facility.
WNRL's $500 million revolving credit facility will then be
terminated. ANDX will also buy in ANDV's IDRs in a $4.0 billion
all-units transaction, following which it will own 59% of ANDX's
outstanding limited partnership units.

The positive outlook reflects the predominately fee-based cash flow
stream generated by ANDX's growing asset base, and Moody's
expectation that ANDX will successfully execute its continuing
growth program while avoiding adding incremental debt leverage in
doing so.

The ratings could be upgraded to Baa3 presuming ANDX minimizes the
execution risk associated with its rapid growth, and there is no
dilution in ANDX's largely fee-based asset base while maintaining a
favorable business risk profile. Debt/EBITDA consistently inside 4x
and distribution coverage of 1.1x or better would also be required
for an upgrade. Ratings could be downgraded if debt/EBITDA exceeded
5x or if continued expansion of ANDX's asset base weakened its
business risk profile. If ANDV's Baa3 rating was downgraded, this
would also pressure ANDX's ratings.

ANDX's senior unsecured notes are rated Ba2, reflecting their
subordinated position to its $1.6 billion secured credit facility's
priority claim to company assets. The size of the senior secured
claims relative to ANDX's outstanding senior unsecured obligations
results in the notes being rated one notch below the Ba1 CFR,
consistent with Moody's Loss Given Default Methodology. Should
ANDX's credit facility become unsecured, the rating on ANDX's
unsecured notes would likely be upgraded to its Ba1 CFR.

The SGL-3 rating reflects Moody's expectation for adequate
liquidity through at least 2018. ANDX's liquidity is supported by
the availability under its $1.6 billion credit facility pro forma
for the refinancing WNRL's $300 million notes. At June 30, $50
million was outstanding under the facility. Liquidity is
constrained by the company's high payout ratio and need to finance
any material growth through external sources, which could result in
increased borrowings. The credit facility, comprised of a $1.0
billion dropdown credit facility and a $600 million revolving
credit facility, is secured by substantially all of ANDX's assets,
and matures in January 2021. Financial covenants require the
interest coverage ratio to be at least 2.5x; consolidated net debt
to EBITDA to be no greater than 5x, with an expansion to 5.5x
during an acquisition period, and senior secured debt to EBITDA no
greater than 3.75x, with an expansion to 4x during an acquisition
period. Moody's expect adequate covenant compliance headroom
through at least 2018.

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

Andeavor Logistics LP is a master limited partnership headquartered
in San Antonio, Texas. Its general partner is held by Andeavor
(Baa3 stable), also headquartered in San Antonio.

ARKADOS GROUP: Incurs $3.80 Million Net Loss in Aug. 31 Quarter
---------------------------------------------------------------
Arkados Group, Inc. filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q reporting a net loss
of $3.80 million on $5.27 million of net sales for the three months
ended Aug. 31, 2017, compared to a net loss of $286,974 on $424,487
of net sales for the three months ended Aug. 31, 2016.

As of Aug. 31, 2017, Arkados had $19.17 million in total assets,
$15.32 million in total liabilities and $3.84 million in total
stockholders' equity.

As of Aug. 31, 2017, the Company had cash on hand of $827,351 and a
working capital deficiency of $3,833,633, as compared to cash on
hand of $469,845 and a working capital deficiency of $1,392,329 as
of May 31, 2017.  The increase in working capital deficiency is
mainly due to an increase in accounts payable and accrued expenses,
as well an increase in short-term convertible debt balances as a
result of the amortization of debt discounts during the three
months ended Aug. 31, 2017.  

The Company has accumulated losses from inception through the
period ended Aug. 31, 2017, of approximately $50 million, as well
as negative cash flows from operating activities.  Presently, the
Company does not have sufficient cash resources to meet its debt
obligations in the twelve months following its fiscal year end of
May 31, 2017.  The Company said these factors raise substantial
doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern.

"Management is in the process of evaluating various financing
alternatives in order to finance the capital requirements of SES,
as well as the needs of its existing Arkados subsidiary and general
and administrative expenses.  These alternatives include raising
funds through public or private equity markets and either through
institutional or retail investors.  Although there is no assurance
that the Company will be successful with its fund-raising
initiatives, management believes that the Company will be able to
secure the necessary financing as a result of ongoing financing
discussions with third party investors and existing shareholders."

conditions raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to
continue as a going concern.

31, 2017, following a net loss of $3.11 million for the year ended

ATRM HOLDINGS: Liquidity Issues Raise Going Concern Doubt
---------------------------------------------------------
ATRM Holdings, Inc., filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission its annual report on Form 10-K, disclosing a net loss of
$6.52 million on $28.16 million of net sales for the fiscal year
ended December 31, 2016, compared with a net loss of $3.34 million
on $25.63 million of net sales in 2015.

The Company's balance sheet at December 31, 2016, showed $16.78
million in total assets, $27.25 million in total liabilities, and a
total stockholders' deficit of $10.47 million.

The Company's historical operating results indicate substantial
doubt exists related to its ability to continue as a going concern.
The Company believes that the actions discussed has already
occurred or are probable of occurring, and mitigate the substantial
doubt raised by its historical operating results, as well as
satisfy the Company's estimated liquidity needs for the 12 months
from the issuance of the consolidated financial statements.
However, the Company cannot predict, with certainty, the outcome of
its actions to generate liquidity, including the availability of
additional debt financing, or whether such actions would generate
the expected liquidity as currently planned.

If the Company continues to experience operating losses, and are
not able to generate additional liquidity through the mechanisms
described above or through some combination of other actions, while
not expected, it may not be able to continue operations.
Additionally, a failure to generate additional liquidity could
negatively impact the Company's access to inventory or services
that are important to the operation of its business.  In addition,
these losses could further trigger violations of covenants under
the Company's debt agreements, resulting in accelerated payment of
these loans.

There can be no assurance that the Company's existing cash
reserves, together with funds generated by its operations and any
future financing, will be sufficient to satisfy the Company's debt
payment obligations, to avoid liquidity issues and/or fund
operations beyond this fiscal year.  The Company's inability to
generate funds from its operations and/or obtain financing
sufficient to satisfy its payment obligations may result in its
obligations being accelerated by its lenders, which would likely
have a material adverse effect on the Company's business, financial
condition and results of operations.  Given these uncertainties,
there can be no assurance that the Company's existing cash reserves
will be sufficient to avoid liquidity issues and/or fund operations
beyond this fiscal year.

-------------------------------------------------------
The Bon-Ton Stores, Inc. has amended its $880 million ABL Tranche A
and Tranche A-1 credit facility, providing the Company with
immediate flexibility and substantial additional liquidity under
its current credit facility.

Nancy Walsh, Bon-Ton's executive vice president and chief financial
officer, commented, "We are pleased with this amendment which
immediately provides us with additional liquidity cushion and
strengthens our financial flexibility through the holiday season.
We appreciate the ongoing support of our bank group as our team
continues to execute key operational and financial initiatives
focused on positioning the business for both near- and long-term
profitable growth."

William Tracy, president and chief executive officer, commented,
"As we build our inventory position heading into the holiday
season, we are pleased to have increased access to capital.  We
look forward to continuing to work closely with our vendor partners
to ensure we are delivering quality merchandise and an exceptional
shopping experience for our customers in our stores and online."

The Sixth Amendment amends required Excess Availability (as defined
in the Loan Agreement) from 20% to 15% of the lesser of (i)
aggregate commitments and (ii) aggregate borrowing base through
Dec. 2, 2017.  After Dec. 2, 2017, the required Excess Availability

million.  Also, from and after the closing of the Sixth Amendment
through and including Dec. 2, 2017, Excess Availability, as of any
date of determination, will be determined on the basis of the
Tranche A Borrowing Base (as defined in the Loan Agreement) and not
the lower of the Tranche A Commitments and the Tranche A Borrowing
Base.  In addition, the definition of Tranche A Borrowing Base has
been amended to lower the limit on the Tranche A Real Estate
Availability Amount (as defined in the Loan Agreement) that may be
included in the Tranche A Borrowing Base to 12.5% from 20%.

The amendment is subject to certain terms and conditions.  The
Company has retained AlixPartners LLP and PJT Partners Inc. who
will continue to provide operational and financial advisory
services.

billion term loan due 2024. The '3' recovery rating remains
unchanged, indicating our expectation for meaningful recovery
(50%-70%; rounded estimate: 50%) for lenders in the event of a
payment default.

"Additionally, we affirmed our 'CCC+' issue-level rating on Brand's
upsized senior unsecured notes due 2025. The '6' recovery rating
remains unchanged, indicating our expectation for negligible
recovery (0%-10%; rounded estimate: 5%) for noteholders in the
event of a payment default."

The affirmation follows Brand's announcement that it is planning to
issue a $300 million add-on to its senior unsecured notes due 2025.
The company plans to use the proceeds from the transaction to repay
the outstanding balance on its revolver, a portion of the balance
on its accounts receivable financing facility, and for general
corporate purposes, including potential acquisitions. Some of the
outstanding balance on the company's revolving credit facility
relates to the borrowings Brand used to finance the two recent
bolt-on acquisitions, completed following its transformative
acquisition of Safway Group in June 2017.

S&P said, "The negative outlook on Brand reflects our belief that
the company's credit measures will improve more slowly than we had
previously anticipated. Although we expect the company to post
strong results in 2018 while continuing to increase its revenue
over the forecast period, we anticipate that its pro forma
debt-to-EBITDA will be elevated in 2017 and remain above 6.0x in
2018.

"We could lower our ratings on Brand over the next 12 months if it
appears likely that the company's FOCF will turn negative for a
sustained period due to weaker earnings and higher-than-expected
working capital investments, for example. Alternatively, we could
lower our ratings on the company if its debt leverage remains above
6.5x for a sustained period.

"We could revise our outlook on Brand to stable over the next 12
months if we believe that the company is on track to reduce its
debt leverage toward 6.0x and we expect it to remain there on a
sustained basis. This could occur if the company maintains EBITDA
margins in the low-double digit percent area, continues to generate
positive free cash flow, and maintains a FOCF-to-adjusted debt
ratio in the low-single digit percent area."


BROCK HOLDINGS II: S&P Cuts CCR to CCC- on Debt Restructuring Risk
------------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings downgraded Houston-based industrial specialty
services provider Brock Holdings II Inc. (BHII) and its wholly
owned subsidiary Brock Holdings III Inc. (Brock) to 'CCC-' from
'CCC+'. The outlooks are negative.

S&P said, "At the same time, we lowered our issue-level rating on
Brock's $190 million second-lien term loan to 'C' from 'CCC-'. The
'6' recovery rating remains unchanged, indicating our expectation
for negligible (0%-10%; rounded estimate: 0%) recovery in the event
of a payment default.

"The downgrade reflects our belief that a default, distressed
exchange, or redemption is inevitable in the next six months given
the company's looming debt maturities, weak liquidity, and soft
operating performance. Furthermore, we believe that Brock's parent,
BHII, would not honor its guarantee on the company's existing debt
if needed. We view Brock's liquidity as weak given the refinancing
risk associated with the upcoming maturity of its $190 million
second-lien term loan due March 16, 2018. If this debt is not
refinanced at least 120 days prior to its stated maturity, a
springing maturity date will be triggered on the company's revolver
and first-lien term loan, accelerating their maturity dates to Nov.
16, 2017.

"The negative outlook on Brock reflects the increasing likelihood
that a default, distressed exchange, or redemption will be
inevitable in the next six months given the company's looming and
sizeable debt maturities. If the company chooses to undertake such
a restructuring, we would view it as equivalent to a default.

"We could lower our ratings on Brock if the company engages in a
distressed exchange or similar offering.

"We view any upside scenario as remote in the next 12 months."

CALVARY COMMUNITY: Intends to File Chapter 11 Plan by November 24
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Calvary Community Assembly of God, Inc. asks the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the District of Nevada to extend the exclusive period
during which only the Debtor may file a plan of reorganization
until November 24, 2017, as well as the time which the Debtor
maintains such "plan exclusivity" until January 23, 2018, in the
event the Debtor files a Plan by November 24.

The primary creditor in the Debtor's bankruptcy case is AG
Financial, which is currently scheduling examinations of the
bookkeeper/accountant of the Debtor.

The Debtor claims that its goal in this proceeding is to develop a
plan of reorganization that is complete and addresses all creditors
in a manner that is intended to have broad creditor support. The
Debtor contends that it has already partially drafted its Plan, but
the Debtor needs to amend said Plan in order to take into account
the current situation of Debtor since the filing of the Petition.

The Debtor tells the Court that the likelihood of a successful
reorganization in this case is demonstrated by the Debtor's
relatively healthy financial condition and its good faith progress
in working with its creditors regarding its reorganization plan.
The Debtor admits, however, that it fell behind its main obligation
on the mortgage.

The Debtor contends that it is working toward a resolution with its
secured creditor to agree to the sale of a vacate portion of the
secured property in order to bring the arrears current and to
establish a healthy financial condition moving forward. The Debtor
avers that it has also shown efforts to place itself in a better
financial position by eliminating many staff positions and reducing
benefits received by staff members.

As such, the Debtor asserts that the requested extension will
protect the plan process while the plan efforts are concluded
expeditiously.

A hearing to consider the Debtor's Motion to Extend Exclusivity
Period will take place on November 29, 2017 at 9:30 a.m.

CASHMAN EQUIPMENT: Sale of Mortgaged & Unencumbered Vessels Okayed
------------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Melvin S. Hoffman of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Massachusetts authorized Cashman Equipment Corp.'s sale
of mortgaged and unemcumbered vessels free and clear of liens in
the ordinary course of business, and its proposed distribution of
sale proceeds.

A list of (i) all vessels of any Debtor that are subject to a
mortgage in favor of any Lender as of the Petition Date
("Vessels"); (ii) certain items of equipment subject to Lender
security interests as of the Petition Date ("Mortgaged Vessels");
(iii) the First Lien Lender on the Mortgaged Vessels; (iv) the
Second Lien Lender on the Mortgaged Vessels; and (v) all
Unencumbered Vessels, attached to the Order is available for free
at:

Held by the Court under seal as Exhibit B is a list, with respect
to each Mortgaged Vessel and Unencumbered Vessel, showing, as
agreed among the Debtors, the Lenders and the Creditors' Committee
solely for purposes of the Order: (i) the agreed upon orderly
liquidation value of each such vessel ("OLV"), and (ii) the agreed
upon amount of gross sale proceeds payable at closing constituting
the agreed minimum disposition price of each such vessel ("MDP").

The relief granted in the Order will terminate on the earlier to
occur of: (i) Jan. 15, 2018, (ii) such earlier date (if any) on
which the Debtors are in default under the Order or the New Cash
Collateral Order, and any applicable cure period therein has
passed, or (iii) with respect to Mortgaged Vessels or Unencumbered
Vessels, the occurrence of sales equaling the caps set forth in the
Order.

Provided that no stay of the Order has been entered by a court of
competent jurisdiction, the Debtor is authorized, immediately upon
the entry of the Order and subject to its terms to: (i) sell
Mortgaged Vessels and Unencumbered Vessels without further notice
or a hearing except as provided by the order, free and clear of
liens, claims and interests, (ii) pay the Closing Costs associated
with such sales, and (iii) distribute the Net Proceeds of such
sales in accordance with the terms of the Order.

The Debtors' authority to sell (i) Mortgaged Vessels is limited to
sales of such vessels for, in the aggregate, gross purchase prices
not exceeding $25,000,000, unless, after such cap has been reached
or would otherwise be reached pursuant to sale of a particular
Mortgaged Vessel, such sale is agreed to between the Debtors and
the Lien Lender(s) asserting liens on such vessel upon three
business days' notice to the Creditors' Committee; and (ii)
Unencumbered Vessels pursuant to the Order is limited to sales of
such vessels for, in the aggregate, gross purchase prices not
exceeding $10,000,000.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary provided for in the Order,
no sale of any Mortgaged Vessel or Unencumbered Vessel may occur at
any time if, after giving pro forma effect to such sale and to the
creation of any Retained Proceeds Claims in connection with such
sale, the ratio of the aggregate OLVs for all Unencumbered Vessels
still owned by the Debtors and that are subject to the New Vessel
Mortgages to the aggregate amount of all Retained Proceeds Claims
would be less than 2 to 1.

The sale of any Mortgaged Vessel for less than MDP may be
effectuated under the Order with the prior written consent of the
First Lien Lender on such Mortgaged Vessel upon three business
days' notice to the Creditors' Committee.  The sale of any
Unencumbered Vessel for less than MDP may be effectuated under the
Order only with the prior written consent of the Collateral Agent
and the Creditors' Committee.

The consideration paid in connection with the sale of any Mortgaged
Vessel or Unencumbered Vessel pursuant to the Order, including, in
the case of a Purchase Option Charter, the price paid to purchase
the vessel if the applicable option to purchase is exercised, will
consist solely of cash or immediately available funds.

Any sale (including any sale pursuant to any Purchase Option
Charter) consisting of either (i) the sale of two or more vessels
constituting Mortgaged Vessels and/or Unencumbered Vessels, or (ii)
the sale of one or more items of equipment constituting Mortgaged
Vessels, together with any one or more vessel(s) constituting
Mortgaged Vessel(s) or Unencumbered Vessel(s), must be made for not
less than the aggregate amount of the MDPs for all such items(s) of
equipment and such vessel(s), unless the applicable Lien Lenders
and, in the case of an Unencumbered Vessel, the Creditors'
Committee have given their prior written consent to such sale.

In the case of any such sale described (including any such sale
pursuant to any Purchase Charter Option), the Sale Notice provided
by the Debtors will set forth an allocation of the aggregate gross
purchase price payable upon the closing of such sale among all
subject vessel(s), subject item(s) of equipment, and any material
charters or leases, which will allocate such price among all such
vessels and items of equipment in proportion to their respective
MDPs (or such lesser price to which the applicable Lien Lenders
have consented), allocating value to any material charters and
leases to the extent ascertainable.  The Allocation will provide
for each Lien Lender to be allocated a share of the aggregate gross
purchase price and corresponding Retained Proceeds Claim not less
than what each Lien Lender would be entitled to if each of its
subject vessel(s) or subject item(s) of equipment were sold at MDP
(or such lesser price to which such Lien Lender has agreed for such
vessel or item to be sold).

The Debtors may enter into and sell vessels and equipment
constituting Mortgaged Vessel(s) and/or Unencumbered Vessel(s)
pursuant to charter agreements that provide the lessee with an
option to purchase the leased vessel and/or equipment provided
that: (i) the purchase price payable in cash/immediately available
funds upon exercise of such option and sale, over and above any
credit for any lease payment(s) paid to the Debtors under the
Purchase Option Charter prior to the sale closing, is not less than
the aggregate MDP for the vessel and, if applicable, items of
equipment subject to such Purchase Option Charter; and (ii) the
purchase option must solely be exercisable on or before six months
from the commencement date of the Purchase Option Charter.

In the event of any sale of any Mortgaged Vessel(s) and/or
Unencumbered Vessel(s) pursuant to an exercise of a purchase option
in a Purchase Option Charter: (i) the amount of the Retained
Proceeds will be reduced by the aggregate amount of any and all
lease payments received by the Debtors under the Purchase Option
Charter prior to the sale closing; and (ii) upon distribution to
the Lien Lender of the Net Proceeds to which such Lien Lender is
entitled pursuant to the Order, the Retained Proceeds Lien will be
substituted for any replacement lien granted or to be granted under
any cash collateral order entered by the Court, to the Lien Lender
in respect of its interest in the vessel and/or equipment sold and
any lease payments under the Purchase Option Charter.

Prior to any proposed closing on any sale (including through
exercise of the option to purchase under a Purchase Option Charter)
and upon entering into a Purchase Option Charter, the Debtors will
provide: (i) to the Notice Parties the Sale Notice, and (ii) solely
to Lien Lenders as to such vessel, the Release Documentation.

Any Lien Lender may object to the proposed sale or Purchase Option
Charter of the Lien Lender's collateral by giving written notice to
the Notice Parties within five business days of service of the Sale
Notice.

Except for sales pursuant to the exercise of purchase options under
Purchase Option Charters, a sale closing must occur within 20
business days after the Sale Notice.  For sales pursuant to the
exercise of purchase options under Purchase Option Charters, the
sale closing must occur within 20 business days after the exercise
of the purchase option.

Prior to the Termination Date, at the closing of a sale of a
Mortgaged Vessel and/or Unencumbered Vessel, the Debtors will
distribute Net Proceeds of such sale to the First Lien Lender,
Second Lien Lender, Collateral Agent or Insurer, as applicable, as
follows:

     a. Mortgaged Vessel: In the case of a Mortgaged Vessel, the
lesser of (i) the Lender Claim(s) secured by the vessel that is
the subject of the sale, or (ii) 85% of Net Proceeds not exceeding
OLV, plus 50% of any Net Proceeds in excess of OLV.

          i. Where clause 18(a)(i) is applicable, the Debtors will
retain the balance of the Net Proceeds after payment of the amount
in clause 18(a)(i) free and clear of liens, claims, encumbrances
and interests subject to the following claims in the following
order of priority: (1) the Other Closing Items, (2) the Insurer
Lien Claim secured by the Mortgaged Vessel in question, if any, (3)
the claims set forth, and in the priority set forth in the New Cash
Collateral Order, (4) in the priority specified by applicable
non-bankruptcy law, any claim by the Insurers for premiums due for
calendar year 2017 for the vessel that is the subject of the sale,
and any claims secured by liens junior to the Additional Adequate
Protection Lien on such vessel.

          ii. Where clause 18(a)(ii) is applicable, the Debtors
will retain the Retained Proceeds free and clear of liens, claims,
encumbrances and interests of the Lien Lenders, but subject to the
following claims in the following order of priority: (1) the Other
Closing Items, (2) any past-due Agent Claims, and (3) in the
priority specified by applicable non-bankruptcy law, any claim by
the Insurers for premiums due for calendar year 2017 for the vessel
that is the subject of the sale, and any claims secured by liens
junior to the Additional Adequate Protection Lien on such vessel.

     b. Unencumbered Vessel: In the case of an Unencumbered Vessel,
the lesser of (i) the outstanding amount of any Agent Claims,
Retained Proceeds Vessels Advances and Retained Proceeds Claims, or
(ii) 85% of Net Proceeds not exceeding OLV, plus 50% of any Net
Proceeds in excess of OLV.

          i. Where clause 18(b)(i) is applicable, the Debtors will
retain the balance of the Net Proceeds after payment of the amount
in clause 18(b)(i) free and clear of liens, claims, encumbrances
and interests of the Lien Lenders, but subject to the following
claims in the following order of priority: (1) the Other Closing
Items, and (2) in the priority specified by applicable
non-bankruptcy
law, any claim by the Insurers for premiums due for calendar year
2017 for the vessel that is the subject of the sale, and any claims
secured by liens junior to the Additional Adequate Protection Lien
on such vessel.

          ii. Where clause 18(b)(ii) is applicable, the Debtors
will retain the Retained Proceeds free and clear of liens, claims,
encumbrances and interests of the Lien Lenders, but subject to the
following claims in the following order of priority: (1) the Other
Closing Items, (2) any past-due Agent Claims and any Retained
Proceeds Vessels Advances, and (3) in the priority specified by
applicable non-bankruptcy law, any claim by the Insurers for
premiums due for calendar year 2017 for the vessel that is the
subject of the sale, and any claims secured by liens junior to the
Additional Adequate Protection Lien on such vessel.

The division of the Net Proceeds from and after the Termination
Date will be:

     a. Mortgaged Vessel: Except as otherwise ordered by the Court,
the proceeds from sale of a Mortgaged Vessel will be distributed at
the closing, in immediately available funds, as follows and in the
following order of priority: (i) first, to pay or, in the event of
a dispute, reserve for Closing Costs and Other Closing Items; (ii)
second, to remit to the First Lien Lender the lesser of (1) the
outstanding amount of its Lender Claim, or (2) all remaining Net
Proceeds; (iii) third, to remit to the Second Lien Lender the
lesser of (1) the outstanding amount of its Lender Claim, or (2)
all remaining Net Proceeds; (iv) fourth, to pay the Insurer Lien
Claim secured by such Mortgaged Vessel; (v) fifth, to the
Collateral Agent, to pay or reserve for the claims set forth, and
in the priority set forth in the New Cash Collateral Order; and
(vi) sixth, to the Debtors, subject to (1) in the priority
specified by applicable non-bankruptcy law, any claim by the
Insurers for premiums due for calendar year 2017 for the vessel
that is the subject of the sale, and any claims secured by liens
junior to the Additional Adequate Protection Lien on such vessel,
and (2) the terms of the New Cash Collateral Order or, as
applicable, any subsequent such order.

     b. Unencumbered Vessel: Except as otherwise ordered by the
Court, the proceeds from sale of an Unencumbered Vessel will be
distributed at the closing, in immediately available funds, as
follows and in the following order of priority: (i) first, to pay
or, in the event of a dispute, reserve for Closing Costs and Other
Closing Items; (ii) second, to pay the Insurer Lien Claim secured
by such Unencumbered Vessel; (iii) third, to the Collateral Agent,
to pay or reserve for any outstanding Agent Claims and Retained
Proceeds Vessels Advances, as provided in the Intercreditor
Agreement; (iv) fourth, to the Collateral Agent, in payment of
Retained Proceeds Claims, the lesser of (1) the outstanding amount
of all Retained Proceeds Claims, or (2) all remaining Net
Proceeds;
and (v) fifth, to the Debtors, subject to (1) in the priority
specified by applicable non-bankruptcy law, any claim by the
Insurers for premiums due for calendar year 2017 for the vessel
that is the subject of the sale, and any claims secured by liens
junior to the Additional Adequate Protection Lien on such vessel,
and (2) the terms of the New Cash Collateral Order or, as
applicable, any subsequent such order.

Without limiting the validity or perfection of the Retained
Proceeds Judicial Lien, the Debtors will execute a preferred fleet
or vessel mortgage on each of the Unencumbered Vessels, which
mortgages will be a first priority lien, subject only to Priority
Maritime Liens and pari passu with the Retained Proceeds Judicial
Lien.  The Debtors are authorized to execute the New Vessel
Mortgages.

Notwithstanding any other provision of the Order, during the term
of the order the Debtors may sell: (i) Mortgaged Vessels by an
order of the Court, pursuant to Bankruptcy Code Sections 363(b) and
(f), with the Lenders having all protections of the Bankruptcy
Code, including Section 363(k), and provided that such order is not
subject to a stay pending appeal, and (ii) Unencumbered Vessels by
an order of the Court, pursuant to Bankruptcy Code Sections 363(b)
and/or (c), and Bankruptcy Code Sections 363(f), provided that all
then outstanding Retained Proceeds Claims, if any, will be paid
from the sale proceeds at the closing.

To the extent that MARAD agrees to become bound to a notice-based
sale process for its mortgaged/liened vessels and equipment with
the Debtors after the entry of the Agreed Orders, such agreement
must be on substantially the same terms as set forth in the Agreed
Orders and in the Related Documents in respect of the Lien
Lenders.

If the Miss Nora (Vanuatu No. 2332), a Mortgaged Vessel subject to
a first priority lien in favor of B of A, is not sold by the
Debtors prior to Jan. 15, 2018, then at the Debtors' expense the
Debtors will relocate the Miss Nora's off charter fleeting location
to Malaysia (or to any other location that is mutually agreeable to
the Debtors and B of A) no later than Feb. 1, 2018.

The Debtors are authorized to pay the Closing Costs associated
with, and to distribute in accordance with the terms of the Order
the Net Proceeds of, the sales approved by the Order Authorizing
Pending Sales.

The provisions of Federal Rule of Bankruptcy Procedure 6004(h) and
6006(d) staying the effectiveness of the Order are waived, and the
Order will be effective and enforceable upon being entered on the
docket of the Court.

CENTRAL GARDEN: S&P Alters Outlook to Positive & Affirms 'BB-' CCR
------------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings affirmed its 'BB-' corporate credit rating on
Walnut Creek, Calif.-based Central Garden & Pet Co. (Central) and
revised the outlook to positive from stable.

S&P also affirmed its 'BB-' rating on the company's $400 million
senior unsecured notes due 2023 and revised the recovery rating to
'3', indicating creditors could expect meaningful (50% to 70%;
rounded estimate 55%) recovery in the event of a payment default,
from '4'.

Total debt outstanding as of June 24, 2017, was about $435.5
million.

S&P said, "The outlook revision to positive from stable reflects
the potential for a higher rating over the next year if Central is
able to further strengthen EBITDA and diversify its business, which
it could do by integrating acquisitions while sustaining adjusted
debt to EBITDA at or below the mid-3x area. While we expect Central
to pursue further acquisitions, we expect these acquisitions to
strengthen Central's supply chain and drive operating efficiencies,
particularly in the pet supplies segment. This could reduce the
amount of business in the garden segment, which is subject to
seasonality and extreme weather conditions.

"The positive outlook reflects our expectation that Central will
reach credit measures consistent with its stated target range while
strengthening its business mix and growing EBITDA by making
acquisitions and continuing to invest in the business. We
anticipate over the next year that adjusted leverage will increase
to between 3.0x-3.5x primarily from debt-financed acquisitions,
consistent with management's financial policy target.

"We could raise the ratings if Central is able to maintain good
performance in its existing businesses while effectively
integrating bolt-on acquisitions and sustaining adjusted debt to
EBITDA at or below the mid-3x area. A higher rating would also be
predicated on a stronger business, most likely due to greater
business diversity and better economies of scale.

"We could revise the outlook to stable if we expect the company to
sustain adjusted leverage near 4x. This could occur if large
retailers demand price concessions from Central, potentially in
response to weak store traffic and declining consumer spending; if
input costs increase meaningfully; if competition escalates; or if
extreme weather conditions hurt demand during the garden segment's
short selling season. We could also revise the outlook to stable if
financial policy becomes more aggressive, including a greater
appetite for larger acquisitions compared to our current
expectation for more modest bolt-on acquisitions."

CONTANDA LLC: S&P Affirms 'B' Corp. Credit Rating, Outlook Stable
-----------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said it affirmed its 'B' corporate credit rating
on Contanda LLC. The outlook is stable. S&P said, "We also affirmed
our 'B' issue-level rating on the company's $270 million term loan
B and $30 million revolving credit facility. The recovery rating on
the debt is '3', reflecting our expectation for meaningful
(50%-70%; rounded estimate: 65%) recovery in the event of
default."

S&P said, "Under our base case scenario, Contanda LLC is unlikely
to maintain sufficient covenant headroom and will be susceptible to
breaching its leverage covenant as a result of delayed growth
plans; it has already done so twice since the middle of 2016.
Partially driving this is ongoing delays to the expansion project
at Gray's Harbor, which have resulted in slower-than-expected
EBITDA growth. We expect the company to avoid default over the next
12 months because we expect its sponsor, EQT Infrastructure II,
will remain willing and able to provide equity when needed. Over
the longer term, we expect Contanda to attempt to refinance its
debt and revise its covenants to settle into a more sustainable
leverage position; its current term loan matures in February 2020.

"The stable outlook on the rating reflects our expectation that
leverage should exceed 6x during the next few years and that
storage and utilization rates will remain at least at current
levels. We also anticipate expansion projects will be completed in
a timely fashion.

"We could lower the rating if leverage increases or if planned
capital spending projects incur significant cost overruns, which
could result in debt to EBITDA exceeding 7x. However, should the
sponsor be unwilling to provide equity to keep Contanda in
compliance with covenants, we could lower the rating by two notches
or more.

"We would likely revise the outlook to positive or raise the rating
if the new management team demonstrates its ability to effectively
manage costs associated with these new developments and financial
metrics are in line with our base case expectations or better. This
would likely result in weighted average leverage dropping below
5.5x consistently. We could also consider a higher rating if the
company finds a long-term solution to its ongoing insufficient
covenant headroom."


CURO FINANCIAL: Moody's Affirms Caa1 CFR & Rates $135MM Notes Caa1
------------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service affirmed Curo Financial Technologies
Corp.'s Caa1 corporate family rating and senior secured debt
rating. In the same rating action, Moody's assigned Caa1 to Curo
Financial's new $135 million senior secured notes. The outlook on
all ratings is stable.

The rating action follows Curo Financial's announced $135 million
senior note issuance, which will be pari passu in seniority with
the company's existing senior notes. The proceeds of the issuance
will be used to fund a dividend to existing shareholders.

RATINGS RATIONALE

The affirmation of the Caa1 corporate family rating of Curo
Financial reflects moderate leverage increase from the transaction,
supported by its strong profitability, as well as the company's low
reliance on payday loans, which reduces regulatory risk to its
business. At the same time, the rating reflects Curo Financial's
tangible common equity deficit, which will be further exacerbated
by the dividend payout. A substantial tangible equity deficit
presents a concern as the company is transitioning its focus to
underwriting-based longer-term lending.

Pro-forma for the issuance of the $135 million senior notes, which
will be pari passu to the existing ones, Curo Financial will have
$605 million of corporate debt relative to last-twelve month EBITDA
of approximately $200 million, translating into corporate leverage
of 3x. With $103 million of borrowings under its SPV facilities,
Curo Financial's total pro-forma leverage was 3.5x at June 30,
2017.

Curo Financial's ratings could be upgraded if it builds up its
tangible common equity to at least 4% of tangible assets, while
demonstrating a successful transition to underwriting-based
installment lending, as evidenced by solid and stable profitability
with minimum amounts of restructuring and other unforeseen
operating expenses with well-managed asset quality and sufficient
liquidity.

Curo's Financial's ratings could be downgraded if the company's
financial performance meaningfully deteriorates and its
capitalization weakens further, either due to potential financial
losses or additional dividend distributions.

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


CURO GROUP: S&P Affirms 'B-' ICR Amid $135MM Notes Add-On
---------------------------------------------------------
Curo Financial Technologies Corp. is issuing a $135 million add-on
to its senior secured notes due 2022, which were issued in January
of 2017. The company plans to use proceeds to pay a dividend to
shareholders.

S&P Global Ratings is thus affirming its 'B-' long-term issuer
credit rating on Curo Group Holdings Corp. The outlook remains
stable.

S&P said, "At the same time, we also affirmed our 'B-' issue rating
on the company's senior secured notes. The recovery rating is '3',
indicating our expectation of meaningful (50%) recovery in the
event of default.

"Our stable outlook reflects S&P Global Ratings' view that Curo
Group Holdings Corp. will maintain a debt to EBITDA ratio between
3.0x-4.0x despite the add-on debt issuance. This is due in part to
better-than-expected financial performance as the company has been
able to grow EBITDA while growing its proportion of installment
loan revenue to 59% of total revenues year-to-date as of
second-quarter 2017, compared to 48% in the year-ago period. At the
same time, U.S. single pay revenue was 11% of total revenue
year-to-date as of second-quarter 2017, compared to 14% in the
year-ago period, which we view as a higher risk product because of
recently finalized Consumer Financial Protection Bureau rules. The
company expects U.S. single pay revenue to be below 10% by year-end
2018.

"The stable outlook reflects S&P Global Ratings' view that Curo
Group Holdings Corp. will maintain a debt to EBITDA ratio between
3.0x-4.0x over the next 12 months. We also expect that Curo will be
able to navigate product shifts toward installment loans without a
significant decrease in EBITDA such that debt to EBITDA increases
above 4x.

"We could lower the ratings if regulatory, operational, or funding
challenges begin to push leverage above 4.0x debt to EBITDA.

"We could raise the ratings if the company is able to lower debt to
EBITDA below 3.0x while continuing to execute on its strategy of
growing installment-based revenue while U.S. single pay revenue
declines."

------------------------------------------------------------
Cytori Therapeutics, Inc., filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission a second amendment to its Form S-1 registration
statement relating to the distribution to holders of its common
stock, at no charge, of non-transferable subscription rights to
purchase up to 10,000 units.  Each unit consists of one share of

comprising the Units will separate upon the closing of the Rights
Offering and will be issued separately but may only be purchased as

one share of common stock at an exercise price of $0.48 per share
from the date of issuance through its expiration 30 months from the
date of issuance.  

The Subscription Rights will expire if they are not exercised by
5:00 p.m., Eastern Time, on Nov. 21, 2017, unless the Rights

DARLING INGREDIENTS: S&P Affirms 'BB+' CCR, Outlook Remains Stable
------------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings affirmed its 'BB+' corporate credit rating on
Dallas-based food and ingredients renderer Darling Ingredients Inc.
The outlook is stable.

S&P said, "We also affirmed the 'BBB-' issue ratings on the
company's secured credit facilities with a '1' recovery rating,
indicating our expectations for very high recovery (in the 90% to
100% range; rounded estimate: 90%) in the event of a payment
default. In addition, we are affirming our 'BB+' rating on
Darling's senior unsecured notes, with a '4' recovery rating
indicating our expectations for meaningful (30% to 50% recovery
range; rounded estimate: 30%) in the event of payment default.

"The ratings largely reflect our belief that the company will
continue to prioritize debt repayment and reduce leverage,
including debt to EBITDA approaching low-3x area over the next 12
months. In addition, we expect improved free cash flow generation,
which we estimate to exceed $100 million annually, supported by
favorable finished products pricing (particularly fats), volume
growth from recent rendering, pet, gelatin, and bakery and plant
expansions, and ongoing cash dividend receipts from its JV (which
are added back to our adjusted EBITDA calculation). We expect
higher capital expenditures of above $250 million as the company's
growth expansion efforts continue across all segments.

"The stable outlook reflects our belief that the company will
continue to prioritize debt repayment and reduce leverage,
including debt to EBITDA approaching 3x over the next 12 months. In
addition, we expect improved free cash flow generation, which we
estimate to exceed $100 million annually, supported by favorable
finished products pricing (particularly fats), volume growth from
recent rendering, pet, gelatin, and bakery and plant expansions,
and ongoing cash dividend receipts from its JV (which are added
back to our adjusted EBITDA calculation).

"We could lower the ratings if the company's debt to EBITDA reverts
to well over 4.0x. We believe this could occur if the company
cannot sustain the improvement in product selling prices, or if the
company faces a sustained shortage of raw materials coupled with
significant foreign exchange headwinds, resulting in EBITDA falling
by more than 15%. Leverage could remain well above 4x if the
company adopts a more aggressive financial policy and prioritizes
share repurchases ahead of debt repayment.

"We could consider a higher rating if Darling improves its business
mix so that it is not as dependent on raw material supply
constraints and debt-to-EBITDA ratio is below 3x and FFO to debt
approaches 30%. We believe that this could happen beyond 2018 if
the company steadily increases its volumes (especially of
higher-margin products), continues to receive annual JV cash
dividends of more than $25 million, and repays an additional $150

DISCOVER FINANCIAL: Fitch to Rate $570MM Preferred Stock BB-
------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings expects to rate Discover Financial Services' (DFS)
$570 million perpetual preferred stock 'BB-(EXP)'.

The preferred shares are expected to be subordinated to existing
subordinated debt but senior to common shares. Distributions, when
and if declared by the Board of Directors, will be payable
semi-annually at a fixed annual rate until October 2027, and
thereafter will be payable quarterly at a floating rate based off
of LIBOR. Distributions on the preferred units are non-cumulative.
The preferred shares are perpetual in nature, but may be redeemed,
at DFS's option, 10 years after issuance. Proceeds are expected to
be used for general corporate purposes, which may include advances
to subsidiaries to finance their activities, repayment of
outstanding indebtedness, share repurchases, and/or the redemption
of the Series B Preferred Stock, which is eligible for redemption
beginning on Dec. 1, 2017.

KEY RATING DRIVERS

PREFERRED STOCK
DFS's preferred stock ratings are rated five notches below DFS's
viability rating (VR) of 'bbb+' in accordance with Fitch's
assessment of each instrument's respective non-performance and
relative loss severity risk profile. The preferred stock ratings
include two notches for loss severity given these securities' deep
subordination in the capital structure, and three notches for
non-performance given that the dividends are non-cumulative and
fully discretionary.

DFS's ratings reflect its strong franchise, supported by its owned
payments network, peer-superior credit performance, strong and
consistent financial performance over various economic and market
cycles, diverse funding base, ample liquidity, strong risk-adjusted
capitalization, and seasoned management team.

Rating constraints include DFS's concentrated and cyclical business
model, heavier reliance on wholesale funding, potential funding
sensitivity associated with internet deposits in a rising rate
environment, the likelihood of asset quality reversion from current
levels, threats from disruptive technologies in the payments space,
and elevated regulatory and legislative risk.

RATING SENSITIVITIES

PREFERRED STOCK
The preferred stock ratings are directly linked to DFS's VR and
would move in tandem with any changes in DFS's VR.

Positive rating momentum for DFS's IDR could be driven by
consistent market share gains in card-based payments, increased
revenue diversity, and sustained strong credit performance in all
loan categories through the credit cycle. Positive ratings momentum
could also be driven by enhanced funding flexibility in the form of
retail deposits. In particular, the durability of DFS's
internet-based deposit platform during a sustained period of rising
interest rates will be a key consideration in evaluating the
strength of the company's funding profile.

Negative rating action could be driven by a significant decline in
profitability associated with slowing loan growth and/or meaningful
net interest margin compression, an outsized degradation in credit
performance relative to peers, a weakening liquidity profile,
significant reductions in capitalization, and/or potential new and
more onerous rules and regulations. Negative rating momentum could
also be driven by an inability of DFS to maintain its competitive
position and profitability in an increasingly digitized payments
and consumer lending landscape.

Fitch has assigned the following rating:
-- Preferred Stock rating of 'BB-(EXP)'.

Existing ratings on DFS and its subsidiary are as follows:

Discover Financial Services
-- Long-Term Issuer Default Rating (IDR) 'BBB+';
-- Viability Rating 'bbb+';
-- Short-Term IDR 'F2';
-- Support Rating '5';
-- Support Rating Floor 'NF';
-- Senior Unsecured Debt 'BBB+'
-- Preferred Stock 'BB-'.

Discover Bank
-- Long-Term IDR 'BBB+';
-- Viability Rating 'bbb+';
-- Short-Term IDR 'F2';
-- Support Rating '5';
-- Support Rating Floor 'NF';
-- Long-Term Deposits 'A-';
-- Short-Term Deposits 'F2';
-- Senior Unsecured Debt 'BBB+';
-- Subordinated Debt 'BBB'.

EAST JEFFERSON GEN. HOSPITAL: S&P Lowers 2011 Bonds Rating to B+
----------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings lowered its long-term rating on Jefferson Parish
Hospital Service District No. 2, La.'s series 2011 hospital revenue
and refunding bonds issued for East Jefferson General Hospital
(EJGH), to 'B+' from 'BB'. The outlook is negative.

"The downgrade and negative outlook is the result of EJGH's
mounting operational challenges and multi-year operating losses
exemplified by a $16 million operating loss in fiscal 2016--as
measured by S&P Global Ratings--and continued operating losses
through interim 2017 resulting in maximum annual debt service
coverage of just 0.07x as of interim June 30, 2017, as well as year
over year declines in unrestricted reserves," said S&P Global
Ratings credit analyst Aamna Shah. "Operating losses are largely
the result of volume pressure due to the loss of key physicians."

Furthermore, management has indicated that it is facing payor
deterioration as well as a number of challenges managing the costs
of its medical group. While management has recently signed a letter
of intent with for-profit HCA Healthcare/Tulane, S&P believes that
EJGH has limited options going forward to generate operating
improvement if for some reason the partnership stalls or doesn't
occur.

S&P said, "The negative outlook reflects our view of multi-year
sizable operating losses culminating with EJGH's increased
operating loss and much weaker DSC as of June 30, 2017. In
addition, with coverage below 1.0x, there could be an event of
default, unless waived per the terms of the indenture."

Over the next year, a lower rating is likely if EJGH fails to
achieve 1.0x coverage and isn't able to obtain a waiver. In
addition, operational challenges leading to further deterioration
in balance sheet metrics could prompt us to take a negative rating
action during the outlook period as well.

S&P said, "We would consider a revision to a stable outlook if EJGH
can reduce operating losses such that coverage returns to levels
closer to 1.5x and if unrestricted reserves stabilize with debt and
unrestricted reserve metrics remaining at current levels. In
addition, if the current EJGH and HCA Healthcare/Tulane negotiation
leads to a definitive agreement, there could be some strategic
benefits but we would expect debt will be restructured due to the
for-profit nature of HCA Healthcare."

EZRA HOLDINGS: Needs More Time to Evaluate Strategy & File Plan
---------------------------------------------------------------
Ezra Holdings Limited and its affiliated debtors request the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York to further
extend by 120 days the Debtors' exclusive periods in which to file
a chapter 11 plan and solicit acceptance, to March 13, 2018, and
May 11, 2018, respectively.

The Court will hold a hearing on December 19, 2017, at 10:00 a.m.
to consider the Debtors' Motion for Further Extension of the
Exclusive Periods.  Any responses or objections to the Debtors'
Motion must be filed and served no later than December 12.

The Debtors assert that the development of a chapter 11 plan
requires addressing the Debtors' complex capital structure and the
need to review and understand the Debtors' and their respective
affiliates' role in various exit strategy scenarios.

Ezra Holdings Limited is a holding company for a number of
operating subsidiaries and joint ventures, and Ezra's
reorganization is intrinsically tied to the value of those
entities. Each of Ezra's three largest subsidiaries has, is, or
will likely restructure. As both the owner of, service provider to,
and/or guarantor or co-borrower of the debts of these affiliates,
each of the Debtors' cases is closely related to the restructuring
of these non-debtor affiliates. Progress in restructuring these
non-debtor affiliates advances the resolution of these cases.

As of the Petition Date, one of the joint ventures (the "ECS
Debtors") had already commenced chapter 11 reorganization
proceedings in Texas. The ECS Debtors sold substantially all of
their assets to a third-party and confirmed a liquidating plan,
which became effective on June 29, 2017. Ezra's equity interests in
the ECS Debtors were eliminated through their plan, though Ezra may
still recover some amounts from the ECS Debtors' estates as a
creditor. The consummation of the ECS Debtors' plan crystalized or
eliminated substantial claims against the Debtors that arose from
guarantees of the ECS Debtors' obligations.

Additionally, the ECS Debtors and EMAS IT Solutions Pte. Ltd
("EMITS") agreed to a transition protocol whereby EMITS continues
to provide services to the ECS Debtors and their purchaser under
agreed upon terms.

Ezra's other two primary subsidiaries consist of Emas Offshore
Limited ("EOL") and Triyards Holding Limited. On August 31, 2017,
EOL commenced a restructuring proceeding before the High Court of
the Republic of Singapore. The EOL restructuring process remains in
its early stages, but its outcome will affect the value of Ezra's
interest in EOL. Progress in restructuring EOL provides additional
clarity to (a) better estimate claims against the Debtors arising
from the guarantee of EOL's indebtedness and (b) assets available
to satisfy claims purportedly secured by interests in EOL.

While Triyards has not commenced a formal restructuring, it also
faces challenges stemming from the financial condition of the
global oil and gas industry. Indeed, on September 6, 2017,
Triyards' Board of Directors announced it was experiencing
difficulty gaining access to new sources of liquidity and could
have a potential going concern issue. As a result, Triyards
voluntarily suspended trading of its shares and announced the
engagement of a financial advisor to develop a restructuring plan.
Ezra guaranteed certain of Triyards' obligations and has
purportedly pledged its interests in Triyards to certain
creditors.

The Debtors contend that the outcomes of both the EOL and Triyards
restructuring processes will impact the value of Ezra's assets and
thus its own restructuring options. As such, the Debtors assert
that analyzing and evaluating the fluid nature of these assets adds
complexity to Ezra's bankruptcy process, necessitating more time to
develop a viable chapter 11 plan.

The Debtors tell the Court that they continue to meet with
potential lenders and investors, but to date none of those
discussions resulted in a definitive offer. Given the ongoing
challenges facing the oil and gas industry and the challenges
facing EOL and Triyards, as well as the Debtors' business as a
service provider for other entities, The Debtors assert that this
process will continue but requires more time.

Going forward, the Debtors intend to maintain speed and efficiency
in these chapter 11 cases as they work to formulate a chapter 11
plan. However, the Debtors are mindful of the time required to
continue to evaluate their assets, explore potential interest from
investors, lenders and even acquirers, as well as to conduct an
analysis of claims filed.

Since Ezra's primary assets relate to its interests in its various
operating business divisions and are intimately tied to its
affiliates, the Debtors continue to evaluate all of these
components to maximize value for their various stakeholders, but
such an endeavor is inherently complex and time-consuming.

The Debtors contend that the Debtors' major subsidiaries separately
restructuring and the ongoing negotiations with Ezra's creditors
may only be preliminary until further clarity of the affiliate
restructurings becomes available. As such, the Debtors require
sufficient time to consider plan structure alternatives and the
financial implications of each so that the resulting plan serves
the best interests of the Debtors and their creditors.

liability if the creditors call on the guarantees.

(Publ), Singapore Branch and Forland Subsea AS on Jan. 24, 2017,

Squar Milner LLP in San Diego, Calif., states that the Company has
incurred a significant accumulated deficit through June 30, 2017

operations.  These factors, among others, raise substantial doubt
about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.

in total assets, $6.67 million in total liabilities, and a total
stockholders' deficit of $4.75 million.

FRANKLY INC: Accumulated Losses Casts Going Concern Doubt
---------------------------------------------------------
Frankly Inc. filed its quarterly report on Form 10-Q, disclosing a
net loss of $2.40 million on $6.49 million of total revenue for the
three months ended June 30, 2017, compared with a net loss of $1.44
million on $5.25 million of total revenue for the same period in
2016.   

For the six months ended June 30, 2017, the Company listed a net
loss of $3.91 million on $12.85 million of total revenue, compared
with a net loss of $3.07 million on $10.47 million of total revenue
same period in the prior year.

At June 30, 2017, the Company had total assets of $30.72 million,
total liabilities of $22.80 million, and $7.91 million in total
stockholders' equity.

As of June 30, 2017, the Company has an accumulated deficit of
$57.6 million, representative of recurring losses since inception.
Additionally, the Company had not generated positive cash flow from
operations since inception, except in 2016.  In the first half of
2017, the Company used cash in operations, and in the third quarter
of 2017 paid off its revolving credit facility with Silicon Valley
Bank.  The Company will need additional financing in the near term
to continue operations.  These conditions raise substantial doubt
about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.

The Company expects that through the next 12 months, it will
require external funding to sustain operations and to follow
through on the execution of its business plan.  The Company is
considering several strategic alternatives which may include
raising funds from strategic sources.  The Company has retained the
corporate advisory services of Waller Capital Partners, an
independent investment bank and advisory firm, to explore and
evaluate strategic options.  There can be no assurance that the
Company's plans will materialize and/or that it will be successful
in its efforts to obtain the funding to cover working capital
shortfalls.

GENWORTH FINANCIAL: A.M. Best's bb- ICRs Still Under Review
-----------------------------------------------------------
A.M. Best has commented that the Long-Term Issuer Credit Ratings
(Long-Term ICR) of "bb-" of Genworth Financial, Inc. (Genworth)
[NYSE: GNW] and Genworth Holdings, Inc. (both domiciled in
Delaware), as well as their existing Long-Term Issue Credit Ratings
(Long-Term IR) will remain under review with negative implications
following the announcement that Genworth and China Oceanwide
Holdings Group Co., Ltd. (Oceanwide) have withdrawn their joint
voluntary notice with the Committee on Foreign Investment in the
United States (CFIUS). In addition, the Financial Strength Rating
(FSR) of B++ (Good) and the Long-Term ICR of "bbb" of Genworth Life
and Annuity Insurance Company (GLAIC) (Richmond, VA), and the FSRs
of B (Fair) and the Long-Term ICRs of "bb+" of Genworth Life
Insurance Company (Wilmington, DE) and Genworth Life Insurance
Company of New York (New York, NY) also will remain under review
with negative implications.

The announcement also highlights that the two companies intend to
refile the transaction at some point with additional mitigation
approaches, including working with a U.S. third-party provider.
This is the third time the parties have withdrawn their filing
seeking approval of Oceanwide's $2.7 billion acquisition of
Genworth. Separately, A.M. Best notes that Genworth received
approval from the Virginia State Corporation Commission, Bureau of
Insurance to proceed specifically with the proposed acquisition of
GLAIC this past month. While regulatory approvals remain
outstanding, the two companies remain committed to the
transaction.

A.M. Best notes that with all merger and acquisition transactions,
there is a fair amount of execution risk, including successfully
obtaining all necessary regulatory approvals. However, the ongoing
delays in the CFIUS process places continued uncertainty on the
potential successful timely execution of this transaction. A.M.
Best will continue to monitor the progress of the transaction
through ongoing discussions with management. In addition, A.M. Best
continues to evaluate the ongoing operating performance of each
rating unit under Genworth for any developments that may impact the
ratings, including third-quarter 2017 performance and the
completion of all assumption reviews.

In addition, in the event the acquisition by Oceanwide cannot be
completed, Genworth also announced it is looking at options to
address its May 2018 debt maturity of $600 million. These options
include a potential refinancing, current holding company cash, and
potential asset sales. A.M. Best also will monitor Genworth's
progress in securing a solution to address the May 2018 debt
maturity, and the impact it may have to the overall
creditworthiness of the company.


GIGA-TRONICS INC: Decides to Voluntarily Withdraw from NASDAQ
-------------------------------------------------------------
Giga-Tronics Incorporated notified the NASDAQ stock market of its
intention to withdraw its ongoing appeal of NASDAQ's determination
to delist the Company from NASDAQ for its failure to comply with
its bid price rule and its failure to comply with the required
minimum of either $2,500,000 in shareholders' equity, according to
a Form 8-K report filed by the Company with the Securities and
Exchange Commission.

The Board of Directors approved resolutions authorizing the Company
to initiate delisting from the Nasdaq Stock Market.  The decision
to withdraw its listing from NASDAQ was taken following the
Company's review and consideration of several factors including the
likelihood of ongoing non-compliance with the NASDAQ listing
requirements.  The Board of Directors determined that the Company
was unlikely to satisfy the requirements for a minimum share price
of $1.00 and a minimum shareholders' equity of $2,500,000 by the
deadline of Oct. 31, 2017, previously imposed by Nasdaq panel and
that an orderly transition to the OTCQB is in the best interests of
the Company and its shareholders.  

"We expect that our common stock will trade on the OTCQB Market
beginning on or around October 30, 2017 under the ticker symbol
GIGA.  Participation in the OTCQB Market requires completion of an
application process, which includes satisfying eligibility
standards and financial metrics.  We submitted our application on
October 23, 2017," the Company stated.

Giga-tronics Inc. will remain a public company following the
delisting and its shares will continue to trade publicly.  The
Company will continue to make SEC filings on Forms 10-K, 10-Q and
8-K, and it will remain subject to the SEC rules and regulations
applicable to reporting companies under the Exchange Act.  The
Company will maintain an independent Board of Directors with an
independent Audit Committee and provide annual financial statements
audited by a Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB)
auditor and unaudited interim financial reports, prepared in
accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles
(GAAP).

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.

GREEN VISION: Requires More Cash to Continue as a Going Concern
---------------------------------------------------------------
Green Vision Biotechnology Corp. filed its quarterly report on Form
10-Q, disclosing a net loss of $251,108 on $41,945 of revenues for
the three months ended June 30, 2017, compared with a net loss of
$187,477 on $464,832 of revenues for the same period in 2016.   

For the six months ended June 30, 2017, the Company listed a net
loss of $448,072 on $104,854 of revenues, compared with a net loss
of $357,404 on $1,111,573 of revenues same period in the prior
year.

At June 30, 2017, the Company had total assets of $6.51 million,
total liabilities of $10.38 million, and $3.87 million in total
stockholders' deficit.

As of June 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, the Company has an
accumulated deficits of $3,648,022 and $3,199,950 respectively, and
its current liabilities exceed its current assets resulting in
negative working capital of $7,846,556 and $7,333,603 respectively.
In view of the matters described, recoverability of a major
portion of the recorded asset amounts and realization of the
portion of current liabilities into revenue shown in the
accompanying balance sheets are dependent upon continued operations
of the Company, which in turn are dependent upon the Company's
ability to raise additional financing and to succeed in its future
operations.  The Company may need additional cash resources to
operate during the upcoming 12 months, and the continuation of the
Company may be dependent upon the continuing financial support of
investors and/or stockholders of the Company.  However, there is no
assurance that equity or debt offerings will be successful in
raising sufficient funds to assure the eventual profitability of
the Company.

GREENWAY HEALTH: S&P Raises CCR to 'B' Amid Improved Debt Leverage
------------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings raised its corporate credit rating on Greenway
Health LLC to 'B' from 'B-'. The outlook is stable.

S&P said, "At the same time, we raised our rating on the company's
first-lien term loan and revolver to 'B' from 'B-'. The '3'
recovery rating reflects our expectations of meaningful (50%-70%;
rounded estimate: 50%) recovery in default.

The upgrade reflects the improvement in Greenway's adjusted debt
leverage and cash-flow measures following a cost-savings initiative
implemented in fiscal 2016, coupled with its transition to a SaaS
(software as a service) business model from a license one. S&P
said, "We expect EBITDA margins in the low-30% range for 2017, up
from about 25% in 2016, with operating cash flows improving to
above $30 million per year. We believe that Greenway, which
operates in a highly fragmented industry, will sustain its leverage
and cash-flow profiles by focusing on organic growth and forgoing
major leveraged acquisitions over the next couple of years."

S&P said, "The stable outlook reflects our view that Greenway will
maintain strong customer renewal rates and stable revenues with
consistent EBITDA margins and positive free operating cash flow
(FOCF).

"We could lower the rating if the company experiences difficulties
in customer retention or monetizing its SaaS offerings,
experiencing a material decline in revenue and EBITDA margins. We
could also lower the rating if the company implements aggressive
financial policies, including large debt-financed acquisitions,
causing leverage to increase significantly and thereby reducing
FOCF to less than $15 million.

"We view another upgrade as unlikely over the next 12 months, given
Greenway's highly leveraged financial risk profile and niche market
focus as well as our expectation that its financial sponsor
ownership is unlikely to maintain leverage below 5x on a sustained
basis."

HELIOS AND MATHESON: Deregisters 3.48 Million Common Shares
-----------------------------------------------------------
Helios and Matheson Analytics Inc. filed a post-effective amendment
No. 1 to its registration statement on Form S-3 (333-215313) which
was previously filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on
Dec. 23, 2016, amended on Jan. 11, 2017 and Jan. 12, 2017, and
declared effective on Jan. 13, 2017.  The Company amended the
Registration Statement to deregister any remaining securities
registered and unsold under the Registration Statement.  The
securities are being removed from registration because the
securities are no longer being offered or sold by the selling
security holder due to the fact that the Senior Secured Convertible
Notes issued on Dec. 2, 2016, by the Company to the selling
security holder were satisfied in full as of Sept. 20, 2017, by the
conversion of principal and interest into an aggregate of 1,926,431
shares of the Company's common stock, the payment of $126,557 in
interest in cash and the issuance to the selling security holder of
a new senior convertible note issued by the Company on Sept. 20,
2017, in the initial aggregate principal amount of $697,000 in
exchange for December Notes with an aggregate principal amount of
$10,000 remaining outstanding on that date.  Accordingly, the
Post-Effective amendment removes from registration 1,999,862 of the
shares of Common Stock that the Company registered pursuant to the
Registration Statement, because the selling security holder will
not acquire those securities and therefore will not offer or sell
those securities.

Separately, the Company filed a post-effective amendment No. 1 to
its registration statement on Form S-3 (333-216569) which was
previously filed with the SEC on March 9, 2017, amended on
April 20, 2017 and declared effective on April 26, 2017.
The Company amended the Registration Statement to deregister any
remaining securities registered and unsold under the Registration
Statement.  The securities are being removed from registration
because the securities are no longer being offered or sold by the
selling security holder due to the fact that the Senior Secured
Convertible Notes issued on Feb. 8, 2017 by the Company to the
selling security holder were satisfied in full as of Aug. 28, 2017
by the conversion of principal and interest into an aggregate of
1,852,886 shares of the Company's common stock and the payment in
cash of $125,190 in interest.  Accordingly, the Post-Effective
Amendment removes from registration 1,479,189 of the shares of
Common Stock that the Company registered pursuant to the
Registration Statement, because the selling security holder will
not acquire those securities and therefore will not offer or sell
those securities.

substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a
going concern through one year after the issuance of the
accompanying financial statements.  Management has evaluated the
significance of the conditions in relation to the Company's ability
to meet its obligations and concluded that without additional
funding the Company will not have sufficient funds to meet its
obligations within one year from the date of the condensed
consolidated financial statements were issued.  While management
continues to plan on raising additional capital from investors to
meet operating cash requirements, there is no assurance that
management's plans will be successful.

Helios and Matheson Analytics Inc. announced that MoviePass Inc.,
the movie theater subscription service that HMNY has agreed to buy
a majority stake in, has surpassed over 600,000 paying monthly
subscribers as of Oct. 18, 2017, up from approximately 20,000 as of
Aug. 14, 2017, the day before MoviePass announced its new $9.95 per
month subscription price.  The continued growth trajectory exceeded
MoviePass' initial projections, and now MoviePass projects that it
will acquire at least 3.1 million additional paying subscribers
through Aug. 18, 2018, exceeding its previous estimate of 2.5
million subscribers.  HMNY also announced that MoviePass had a
subscriber churn rate of 4.2% for month 1 and 2.4% for month 2
after announcing its new $9.95 per month subscription price.  Based
on current churn rates, monthly subscriber retention is above 96%
and average paying monthly subscriber life expectancy is 46.8
months.

"Month after month we aim to improve our service with faster card
delivery, improved application updates, and an easier-to-use web
site. We believe our strategy is paying off in terms of increased
satisfaction, reduced churn, and faster growth," said Mitch Lowe,
CEO of MoviePass.  "I believe our ongoing investments in customer
experience, usability and convenience have steadily improved
customer satisfaction and retention."

Following HMNY's purchase of a majority stake in MoviePass, which
remains subject to the approval of HMNY's stockholders, HMNY plans
to further integrate its data analytics capabilities with the
MoviePass service to analyze moviegoer's behaviors and preferences,
with the goal of helping the film industry better understand what
audiences want.  With HMNY's capabilities, HMNY believes that
MoviePass can bridge an intelligence gap for the movie theater
industry so the entire film ecosystem can better serve audiences in
areas ranging from production to advertising.

"When you apply computer science and machine learning to an
industry that we believe has lacked significant innovation, useful
patterns start to emerge," said Ted Farnsworth, chairman and CEO of
HMNY.  "More subscribers mean more data.  Together, I believe HMNY
and MoviePass can offer important analytics to movie studios and
exhibitors while serving the interests of moviegoers in the
process."

substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a

accompanying financial statements.  Management has evaluated the
significance of the conditions in relation to the Company's ability
to meet its obligations and concluded that without additional
funding the Company will not have sufficient funds to meet its

continues to plan on raising additional capital from investors to
meet operating cash requirements, there is no assurance that
management's plans will be successful.


HILTON WORLDWIDE: S&P Alters Outlook Stable & Affirms 'BB+' CCR
---------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings revised its rating outlook on McLean, Va.-based
Hilton Worldwide Holdings Inc. to stable from positive. At the same
time, S&P affirmed all ratings on the company, including the 'BB+'
corporate credit rating.

S&P said, "The outlook revision reflects our belief that Hilton's
policy goal to keep its measure of net debt to EBITDA between 3x
and 3.5x will not translate into our measure of adjusted leverage
staying below our 4x upgrade threshold over the volatile lodging
cycle. Hilton calculated its net debt to EBITDA at 3.1x as of Sept.
30, 2017, pro forma for the spin-offs of its real estate and
timeshare businesses, which is at the low end of the company's
desired policy range.

"This ratio differs from our measure by around 0.5x-0.75x,
primarily due to our addition of operating lease and pension debt
adjustments, our inclusion of certain restructuring charges in
EBITDA, and the partial netting of unrestricted cash balances.
Hilton has not changed its 3x-3.5x policy range since it was set by
the company in 2016, we believe the company's business risk and
cash flow profile have strengthened since the real estate and
timeshare spin-offs in January 2017, and our current base-case
forecast for our measure of adjusted leverage is just below our 4x
upgrade threshold through 2018. However, a ratings upgrade is
unlikely--at least over the next year–-because we are no longer
confident that Hilton will stay at the low end of its policy range
while revenue per available room (RevPAR) is growing, in order to
accommodate leverage deterioration in an economic downturn. As a
result, when we add our risk adjustments to Hilton's measure of its
leverage, we believe adjusted leverage could be above 4x from time
to time, possibly even when the economy and the lodging sector are
growing, to finance investments or to return capital to
shareholders.

"The stable outlook reflects our expectation for a continued good
global lodging operating environment through 2018 and that Hilton
has a significant cushion in credit measures compared to our 5x
adjusted debt to EBITDA and 12% FFO to adjusted debt downgrade
thresholds.

"Under our current base-case forecast Hilton has significant
cushion in credit measures compared to our downgrade thresholds
through 2018. However, we could lower the ratings one notch in the
event that Hilton's operating performance significantly
underperforms our expectations and if we believed total adjusted
debt to EBITDA would remain above 5x and FFO to debt below 12%.
While unlikely through 2018, this could occur in the event of an
unexpected global economic downturn that meaningfully impairs
RevPAR and EBITDA.

"We could raise the rating one notch if Hilton can sustain adjusted
debt to EBITDA below 4x and FFO to debt above 20% over the highly
volatile lodging cycle, provided we are confident Hilton's policy
goal of its measure of net debt to EBITDA between 3x and 3.5x
translates into adjusted leverage measures inside our upgrade
thresholds."

IMPALA PRIVATE: Moody's Assigns B3 CFR; Outlook Stable
------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a B3 Corporate Family Rating
("CFR") and a B3-PD Probability of Default Rating (PDR) to Impala
Private Holdings II, LLC in connection with Siris Capital Group,
LLC's ("Siris") proposed acquisition of Intralinks Holdings, Inc.
Concurrently, Moody's assigned a B2 rating to the proposed $50
million senior secured first lien revolving credit facility, a B2
rating to the proposed $450 million senior secured first lien term
loan, and a Caa2 rating to the proposed $150 million senior secured
second lien term loan. The ratings outlook is stable.

The new loans are being issued as part of a transaction whereby
investment funds affiliated with Siris are acquiring 100% of the
common stock of Intralinks Holdings, Inc. from Synchronoss
Technologies, Inc. ("Synchronoss", B1 rating on review for
downgrade) in a transaction valued at approximately $1 billion. In
addition to the credit facilities, the Sponsor is investing
approximately $435 million of new cash equity. Following the
completion of the proposed transaction, the new debt issued by
Impala Private Holdings II, LLC will be assumed by Intralinks, Inc.
(a wholly owned subsidiary of Intralinks Holdings). Impala Private
Holdings II, LLC, Intralinks Holdings, Inc. and Intralinks, Inc.
will be collectively referred to herein as "Intralinks".

Moody's assigned the following ratings to Impala Private Holdings
II, LLC (to be assumed by Intralinks, Inc.)

-- Corporate Family Rating at B3

-- Probability of Default Rating at B3-PD

-- Proposed $50 million senior secured first lien revolving
    credit facility due 2022 at B2 (LGD3)

-- Proposed $450 million senior secured first lien term loan due
    2024 at B2 (LGD3)

-- Proposed $150 million senior secured second lien term loan due

    2025 at Caa2 (LGD5)

-- Outlook at Stable

The assignment of ratings remain subject to Moody's review of the
final terms and conditions of the proposed financing. Following
consummation of the acquisition and the assumption of the new debt
by Intralinks, Inc. all ratings at Impala Private Holdings II, LLC
will be withdrawn and the same ratings assigned at Intralinks,
Inc.

RATINGS RATIONALE

The B3 CFR reflects the company's high pro forma debt-to-EBITDA
leverage, estimated in the low 6.0 times range (Moody's adjusted
and incorporating all actioned cost reduction initiatives) as of
September 30, 2017, modest size relative to its peers, and high
concentration of revenues in the financial services segment. The
company operates in a fragmented and highly competitive environment
with low barriers to entry and increasing susceptibility to
evolving changes in technology. Moody's assesses the company's
overall business risk to be high, characterized by recent shift in
strategy to re-focus on core financial services market, uncertainty
with respect to new product offerings designed to meet growth
targets, and significant exposure to the volatile M&A segment
within the financial services market. Given uncertainty as to M&A
volumes in 2018, Moody's expects the company to generate modest
revenue and earnings growth over the next 12-18 months, with
debt-to-EBITDA leverage to remain above 6.0 times. The rating also
reflects the risk of potential aggressive financial policies under
private equity ownership.

Despite its small revenue base and high leverage, the rating is
supported by the company's leading position and long operating
history as a provider of secure online workspaces with a good
reputation for product reliability and security, as well as
geographic revenue diversification. Furthermore, Intralinks' track
record of high renewal rates and strong re-occuring sales generated
by repeat business from financial services clients as well as
Moody's expectation for profitability and cash flow generation
improvement in 2018 also provide support for the rating.

The stable rating outlook reflects Moody's view that the company
will successfully manage the transition from its current status as
a subsidiary of Synchronoss to a stand-alone company with
separation costs that are in line with Moody's expectation. Moody's
also expects Intralinks to achieve its cost savings goals while
maintaining stable revenues, improve profitability and generate
free cash flow of at least $40 million over the year following the
close of the acquisition.

The B2 rating assigned to Intralinks' first lien credit facility
(revolver and term loan), one notch above the company's B3 CFR,
reflects their senior position in the capital structure relative to
the second lien term loan. The first lien credit facility is
secured by a first priority lien on substantially all assets of the
borrower. The Caa2 rating on the second lien term loan, two notches
below the company's B3 CFR, reflects lien subordination to the
first lien term loan. The second lien term loan is secured by a
second priority lien on all assets of the borrower. The revolver,
first and second lien term loan will be supported by guarantees
from Intralinks Holdings, Inc., an intermediate holding company,
and all material wholly-owned domestic restricted subsidiaries.

Moody's expects Intralinks to maintain good liquidity over the next
12-15 months. Sources of liquidity include a cash balance of $20
million at the close of the transaction, access to funds under the
new $50 million revolving credit facility (undrawn at closing), an
no financial maintenance covenants in the first and second lien
term loan facilities. Moody's expects balance sheet cash and cash
flow from operations to be more than sufficient to cover working
capital needs and capital expenditures over the next twelve months.
The revolver is expected to have a springing net first lien
leverage ratio (to be determined) if more than 30% of the revolver
is drawn. The company is not expected to utilize the revolver
materially during the next 12-15 months and is expected to remain
well in compliance with the springing net first lien secured
leverage covenant.

Moody's could upgrade Intralinks' ratings if the company builds a
track record of sustained organic revenue growth and margin
expansion while sustaining debt-to-EBITDA (Moody's adjusted) below
5.5 times and free cash flow to debt in the mid-to-high single
digits.

The ratings could be downgraded if the company experiences a
material weakening in revenue and earnings, or a deterioration in
liquidity. Additionally, implementation of more aggressive
financial policies, such as debt-financed dividends or large
debt-funded acquisitions that raise financial and execution risks,
could pressure the ratings.

Intralinks, Inc. is a leading provider of Software-as-a-Service
("Saas") online workspaces that enable businesses to securely
collaborate, communicate and exchange information inside and
outside the enterprise security firewalls. Following the completion
of the acquisition, Intralinks will be majority owned by affiliates
of Siris Capital Group, LLC. The company generated approximately
$300 million in gross revenues for the twelve months ended
September 30, 2017.

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

INTRALINKS HOLDINGS: S&P Assigns 'B' CCR, Outlook Stable
--------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings assigned its 'B' corporate credit rating to New
York City-based Intralinks Holdings Inc. The outlook is stable.

S&P said, "At the same time, we assigned our 'B' issue-level rating
and '3' recovery rating to the company's $500 million first-lien
credit facility, consisting of a $50 million revolving credit
facility due 2022 and a $450 million first-lien term loan due 2024.
The '3' recovery rating indicates our expectation of meaningful
(50%-70%; rounded estimate 60%) recovery in the event of a default.


"We also assigned our 'B-' issue-level rating and '5' recovery
rating to the company's $150 million second-lien term loan due
2025. The '5' recovery rating indicates our expectation of modest
(10%-30%; rounded estimate 10%) recovery in the event of a default.
All debt was issued by Impala Private Holdings II LLC."

"The rating on Intralinks reflects our view of the company's niche
product offering and the somewhat commoditized nature of the
enterprise file sync and sharing (EFSS) industry, partly offset by
its strong market position as a provider of bank-grade secure
content collaboration," said S&P Global Ratings credit analyst
Geoffrey Wilson. "The rating also reflects our expectation that its
strategic shift to refocus on its core business will lead to
improving profitability," Mr. Wilson added.

The stable outlook reflects S&P's view that the company will
maintain its good market position in virtual data rooms while
continuing to cross-sell its EFSS product into its existing
customer base.

----------------------------------------------------------
A.M. Best has affirmed the Financial Strength Rating (FSR) of A-
(Excellent) and the Long-Term Issuer Credit Ratings (Long-Term ICR)
of "a-" of the property/casualty subsidiaries and affiliated
insurance companies of Kemper Corporation (Kemper Corp.) [NYSE:
KMPR], collectively referred to as Kemper Property & Casualty Group
(Kemper P&C). A.M. Best also has affirmed the FSR of A- (Excellent)
and the Long-Term ICRs of "a-" of Kemper Corp.'s life/health
subsidiaries, collectively referred to as Kemper Life & Health
Group (Kemper L&H). Concurrently, A.M. Best has affirmed the
Long-Term ICR of "bbb-" and the Long-Term Issue Credit Ratings
(Long-Term IR) of Kemper Corp., the ultimate parent. The outlook of
these Credit Ratings (ratings) is stable. All companies are
headquartered in Chicago, IL, unless otherwise specified.

The ratings and outlooks of Kemper P&C, led by Trinity Universal
Insurance Company (Trinity) (Dallas, TX), reflect its solid
risk-adjusted capitalization, generally favorable operating
performance and the continued actions taken to reduce exposure to
catastrophic loss and manage risks. Kemper P&C has aggressively
pursued rate actions, enhanced risk selection, and further
developed a more formalized enterprise risk management program.
Kemper P&C also maintains a diverse business profile, good
geographic spread of risk and long-standing agency relationships.
Trinity reinsures the other members through a 100% quota share
reinsurance agreement.

Partially offsetting these positive rating factors are Kemper P&C's
underwriting volatility and depressed operating earnings in recent
years. In addition, underwriting leverage, while improved over
historical levels, remains higher than that of the private
passenger automobile and homeowners' composites. Furthermore,
Kemper P&C continues to face challenges from strong competitive
market pricing and adverse loss trends in its main lines of private
passenger auto, catastrophic losses from increased frequency and
severity of weather events and the generally low interest rate
environment, which has pressured investment returns.

Factors that may lead to negative rating action include a material
decline in operating results; capitalization levels that fall below
A.M. Best's expectations for the current rating level; or planned
strategic initiatives that fail to produce measurable improvement
in performance. Rating upgrades or outlook revisions may be
considered if the group can demonstrate better-than-average
earnings and organic surplus growth through all phases of the
underwriting cycle without diminution in business profile.

The ratings and outlooks of Kemper L&H reflect its collective
long-term presence as protection insurance providers within Kemper
Corp., its demonstrated market niche in the mature home service
life insurance segment, its well-established employee agency field
force, strong level of consolidated risk-adjusted capitalization
and profitable operating performance on a GAAP and statutory (SAP)
basis. Offsetting rating factors include the challenge to grow
total net premium, due primarily to a decline in the overall home
service market, and the ongoing high levels of dividends that have
suppressed growth in absolute capital.

Kemper L&H's consolidated risk-adjusted capitalization is enhanced
by its strong profitability, which has historically offset large
parental dividend payments. The group's absolute capital has been
flat to declining due to these large dividends. Furthermore, A.M.
Best notes that Kemper L&H maintains a stable liability structure
relative to its life/annuity peers, which is facilitated by its
low-risk product offerings without secondary guarantees.

A.M. Best believes Kemper L&H may continue to be challenged to
sustain and grow its new Kemper Senior Solutions and Kemper
Benefits businesses. The group is looking at expense consolidation
and reduction strategies, and has successfully implemented efforts
to maintain target profitability. Members of Kemper L&H also remain
exposed to changes in the application of state unclaimed property
laws and related insurance claims, the application of which may
have an adverse effect on its financial position. However, the
company has been proactively managing this risk and took a reserve
charge in 2016 to recognize the anticipated costs of compliance and
also has enhanced its business processes to use the Social Security
death master file on an ongoing basis when appropriate.

The ratings of Kemper L&H could be negatively impacted if there is
a decline in consolidated adjusted capital or deterioration in
quality of capital, if there is an unfavorable earnings trend, with
increased volatility, if there is a negative outcome (litigation,
regulation or reputational) of the Social Security death master
file issue or if there is a decline in A.M. Best's view of the
financial strength of Kemper P&C, its larger property/casualty
affiliate. The ratings could be positively impacted if there is a
significant improvement in A.M. Best's view of the financial
strength of Kemper P&C.

Kemper Corp.'s adjusted debt-to-total capital ratio of 21.2% at
June 30, 2017, was well-within A.M. Best's guidelines for the
company's ratings. In addition, Kemper Corp.'s interest coverage
was adequate for its assigned ratings.

The FSR of A- (Excellent) and the Long-Term ICRs of "a-" have been
affirmed with a stable outlook for the following members of the
Kemper Property & Casualty Group:

Trinity Universal Insurance Company
Alpha Property & Casualty Insurance Company
Capitol County Mutual Fire Insurance Company

Merastar Insurance Company

affirmed with a stable outlook for the following members of Kemper

MARRONE BIO: Dwight Anderson May Provide Add'l $4M in Financing
---------------------------------------------------------------
Marrone Bio Innovations, Inc. and Dwight W. Anderson, as lender,
entered into an Amended and Restated Promissory Note on Oct. 23,
2017, which restates in its entirety the Promissory Note entered
into by the Company and the Lender on Oct. 12, 2017, according to a
Form 8-K report filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
The Restated Note is an unsecured promissory note in the aggregate
principal amount of up to $6,000,000, due on Oct. 23, 2020.  The
initial funding of $1,000,000 of the principal amount of the
Restated Note occurred on Oct. 12, 2017, as previously disclosed in
connection with the Prior Note, and a second closing of an
additional $1,000,000 of the principal amount of the Restated Note
was funded on Oct. 23, 2017.  Pursuant to the terms of the Restated
Note, the Lender may, in his sole discretion, fund an additional
$2,000,000 of principal under the Restated Note on each of Nov. 3,
2017, and Dec. 3, 2017.

From the date of the closing through Dec. 31, 2017, the Restated
Note will bear interest at a rate of 1% per annum, payable in
arrears on the Maturity Date, unless earlier converted into shares
of the Company's common stock.  Thereafter, beginning Jan. 1, 2018,
the Restated Note will bear interest at a rate of 10% per annum,
payable in arrears on the Maturity Date, unless earlier converted
into shares of the Company's common stock as described below.

Any or all of the principal or accrued interest under the Restated
Note may be converted into shares of the Company's common stock at
a rate of one share of common stock per $1.00 of converting
principal or interest, rounded down to the nearest share with any
fractional amounts cancelled, at the election of the Lender by
delivery of written notice to the Company.  In addition, upon the
consummation of a qualified equity financing of the Company prior
to the Maturity Date, the aggregate outstanding principal balance
of the Restated Note and all accrued and unpaid interest thereon
may convert, at the option of the Lender, into that number of the
securities issued and sold in such financing, determined by
dividing (a) such aggregate principal and accrued interest amounts,
by (b) the purchase price per share or unit paid by the purchasers
of the Company's securities issued and sold in such financing.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, Lender's ability to affect any such
conversions will be limited by applicable provisions governing
issuances of shares of the Company's common stock under the rules
of The Nasdaq Capital Market, subject to the Company's receipt of
any applicable waivers thereof, and any amounts not issuable to the
Lender in the Company's equity securities as a result of this
limitation will be payable in cash.

The Lender is an "accredited investor" (as defined in Rule 501(a)
of Regulation D) and the Amended and Restated Note was, and any
equity securities issued upon conversion thereof are, offered and
sold pursuant to an exemption from the registration requirements
under Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933.

MEDIGUS LTD: Accumulated Losses Raise Going Concern Doubt
---------------------------------------------------------
Medigus Ltd. filed its quarterly report on Form 6-K, disclosing a
net income of $788,000 on $82,000 of revenues for the three months
ended June 30, 2017, compared with a net loss of $2.78 million on
$98,000 of revenues for the same period in 2016.   

For the six months ended June 30, 2017, the Company listed a net
loss of $1.22 million on $196,000 of revenues, compared with a net
loss of $5.53 million on $360,000 of revenues same period in the
prior year.

At June 30, 2017, the Company had total assets of $8.24 million,
total liabilities of $2.70 million, and $5.53 million in total
stockholders' equity.

During the six months period ended June 30, 2017, the Group
incurred a total comprehensive loss of $1.2 million and negative
cash flows from operating activities of $2.6 million.  As of June
30, 2017, the Group had accumulated losses of $54.6 million.  Based
on the projected cash flows and its cash balances as of June 30,
2017, the Group's Management is of the opinion that without further
fund raising it will not have sufficient resources to enable it to
continue its operating activities including the development,
manufacturing and marketing of its products for a period of at
least 12 months from the date of approval of these financial
statements.  As a result, there is substantial doubt about the
Group's ability to continue as a going concern.

METROPOLITAN LIGHTHOUSE CS: Moody's Rates $24.3MM Rev. Bonds Ba1
----------------------------------------------------------------
Issue: Revenue Bonds (Metropolitan Lighthouse Charter School
Project), Tax-Exempt Series 2017A; Rating: Ba1; Rating Type:
Underlying LT; Sale Amount: $24,300,000; Expected Sale Date:
11/15/2017; Rating Description: Revenue: Government Enterprise;

Issue: Revenue Bonds (Metropolitan Lighthouse Charter School
Project), Taxable Series 2017B; Rating: Ba1; Rating Type:
Underlying LT; Sale Amount: $700,000; Expected Sale Date:
11/15/2017; Rating Description: Revenue: Government Enterprise;

Summary Rating Rationale

Moody's Investors Service has assigned an initial Ba1 and stable
outlook to Metropolitan Lighthouse Charter School, NY's $24.3
million Revenue Bonds (Metropolitan Lighthouse Charter School
Project), Tax-Exempt Series 2017A and $700,000 Taxable Series
2017B. The bonds are being issued by Build NYC Resource Corporation
and will be secured by payments pursuant to a Loan Agreement
between the Corporation and a limited liability company whose
initial sole member is Metropolitan Lighthouse Charter School,
which will lease the purchased property.

The Ba1 rating reflects favorable liquidity and historical coverage
levels of fixed obligations supported by growing enrollment of this
single site charter school. The rating incorporates future
challenges facing the school as it opens high school grades in a
more competitive environment, including diminished debt service
coverage levels.

The rating is also based upon relatively weak legal requirements of
sum sufficient coverage with cash in excess of 90 days, a limited
charter renewal history, and potential conflicts of interest under
a management agreement that requires a seated board member be a
representative of the management organization.

Rating Outlook

The stable outlook reflects the likelihood that the school will
maintain favorable liquidity in excess of 100 days and debt service
coverage at Moody's above current levels. The outlook is also based
upon continued enrollment growth as the school expands to serve
high school grades.

Factors that Could Lead to an Upgrade

Substantially improved debt service coverage levels

Full enrollment at the high school level with strong demand

Subsequent charter renewals

Factors that Could Lead to a Downgrade

Declines in debt service coverage or liquidity levels

Debt service coverage at covenant levels given 90 days cash

Enrollment losses or failure to demonstrate demand for high school
grades

Legal Security

The debt is secured by payments to the issuer under a loan
agreement between the issuer and the Institution. The Institution's
initial sole member is MetLCS. Payments under the loan agreement
will be made from lease payments made by MetLCS as lessee pursuant
to the school's lease with the Institution. The initial term of the
lease is coincident with bond amortization with two renewal options
of five years each.

Under the terms of the lease, MetLCS has pledged for lease payments
all of the school's revenues with the exception of categorical
education funds and restricted gifts. Pledged revenues are defined
as School Pledged Revenues. The Bank of New York serves as both
custodian of the receipts under the Indenture and trustee. On a
bimonthly basis, the custodian prepares a "Custody Agreement
Notice" by which funds for debt service payments are transferred to
the trustee.

Under the indenture, once deposited into the "Revenue Fund" by the
trustee, the funds flow through a prescribed series of funds that
begins with the "Bond Fund". Deposits to "Interest" and "Principal"
accounts will be made on a 1/3, 1/6 basis each payment date.

Bonds are secured by the subaccount of the "Debt Service Reserve
Fund", funded by the Charter School Finance Partnership, LLC
("Partnership"). Pursuant to the "Debt Service Reserve Fund
Agreement", the Partnership grants a first security interest in the
"Reserve Fund" to the issuer and trustee. The reserve is funded at
the traditional "three-pronged" test. Draws on the debt service
reserve fund must be repaid within a six month period in equal
one-third payments.

Bonds are additionally secured by a mortgage interest in the
financed school. There is no "As-Built Appraisal" that includes
planned improvements. An appraisal completed in 2013 identified a
market value of $4.9 million, and Moody's would not expect full
recovery were there to be a default in the near term. The school is
located in an urban setting, and the environmental report
identified a nearby gas station and dry cleaners, although this
would be in common with neighboring schools.

Covenants are weak and represent a negative credit factor. Notably,
debt service coverage is only sum sufficient if the school has at
least 90 days cash. If liquidity is below this level, debt service
coverage must be 1.1x. Violation of either is not an event of
default, but a consultant must be hired at the direction of
majority of bondholders. Less than sum-sufficient coverage is also
not an event of default. The trustee must notify bondholders, and
the majority can direct a declaration of default or this can also
be done by the trustee. The additional flexibility that this would
provide in the event of a temporary weakening in operations is a
credit strength.

The additional bonds test equals 1.0x MADs by the most recent
audited fiscal year and a consultant's report showing 1.25x
coverage of debt service following project completion. MetLCS may
incur long-term indebtedness without limitation if such
indebtedness is secured solely by a security interest in the
personal property financed from such indebtedness and if aggregate
payments on such debt do not exceed 5% of gross revenues in the
most recent audit. MetLCS may incur short-term indebtedness equal
to 10% of revenue for the most recently completed fiscal year.

Events of default include nonpayment and failure of the issuer to
perform any covenant under the Indenture. Upon an event of default,
holders of over 25% of outstanding principal may accelerate the
bonds; declaring all amounts to be due and payable immediately. The
Trustee is also authorized to make this same determination.

Use of Proceeds

The current issuance will provide take-out financing for the
school's existing capital lease with the building's developer and
$2 million in new money for 6,000 sq. ft. rooftop addition that
will provide a gym and performance space.

Obligor Profile

Metropolitan Lighthouse Charter School, located in the Bronx, New
York, now serves 531 students in grades K-9 with plans to add an
additional year of high school in succeeding years until reaching
full enrollment of 676 students in the fall of 2020. The school is
operated under a Contract with Lighthouse Academies, Inc., a
not-for-profit corporation under Section 501 (c)(3).

Methodology

The principal methodology used in this rating was US Charter
Schools published in September 2016.

MUSCLEPHARM CORP: Board Rejects Amerop's $18M Investment Proposal
-----------------------------------------------------------------
In a Schedule 13D/A filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission, Amerop Holdings, Inc. disclosed that on Oct. 20, 2017,
the Special Committee of the Board of MusclePharm Corporation
declined its proposal to acquire $18 million of newly issued shares
of the Company common stock at a price of $1.96 per share and on
the terms set forth in the term sheet that Amerop submitted to the
Special Committee on Oct. 17, 2017.  The Special Committee informed
Amerop that, instead of negotiating with Amerop, it would focus on
renegotiation discussions with Ryan Drexler, the executive chairman
of the Board and the chief executive officer of the Issuer, to
recapitalize/refinance the three secured promissory Notes held by
Mr. Drexler, with an aggregate principal amount of $18,000,000.
The Special Committee informed Amerop that its decision was based
in part on the possible concern that certain members of the
Issuer's senior management team would resign if the Issuer entered
into an agreement with Amerop with respect to the
refinancing/recapitalization of the Notes.

On Oct. 22, 2017, Amerop contacted the Special Committee and urged
it to reconsider its decision.  Amerop offered to conduct limited
due diligence in connection with its proposal and also informed the
Special Committee that it had identified senior management
personnel with relevant industry expertise who it believed would be
available to become officers of the Issuer in the event of
departures by one or more members of the Issuer's current senior
management team.  The Special Committee has not responded to Amerop
despite an attempt by Amerop to reconvene discussions.

"Amerop remains concerned with the governance, management,
operations and financing of the Issuer, including the Issuer's
plans for recapitalization / refinancing of the Notes.  Amerop
intends to continue to have discussions with the Board and possibly
other Issuer investors regarding other alternatives to address
Amerop's concerns.  In the course of these discussions, Amerop may
propose solutions to the Issuer's challenges that may directly or
indirectly relate to or result in the acquisition by Amerop or
other persons of additional Issuer securities, or the disposition
by Amerop or other persons of Issuer securities; an extraordinary
transaction involving the Issuer, such as a sale, recapitalization
or reorganization of the Issuer; sales or transfers of material
amounts of the Issuer's assets; changes in the composition of the
Board or the Issuer's management team; material changes in the
Issuer's capital structure; and other potentially material changes
in the Issuer's business, operations or structure," said Amerop in
the regulatory filing.

Amerop reserves the right to acquire additional shares of Issuer
Common Stock, or sell its existing shares of Issuer Common Stock,
based on the course of the discussions described above or on the
basis of exogenous factors such as the price and availability of
the Issuer's securities; subsequent developments concerning the
Issuer's business and prospects and the industry in which the
Issuer operates; other investment and business opportunities
available to Amerop; tax considerations; and such other factors as
Amerop may consider relevant.

for the year ended Jan. 31, 2016.  As of July 31, 2017, Naked Brand
had US$5.46 million in total assets, US$755,843 in total
liabilities and US$4.70 million in total stockholders' equity.

BDO USA, LLP, in New York, issued a "going concern" qualification
on the consolidated financial statements for the year ended Jan.
31, 2017, stating that the Company incurred a net loss for the year
ended Jan. 31, 2017, and the Company expects to incur further
losses in the development of its business.  This condition raises
substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a
going concern.


NATIONAL EVENTS: Needs More Time for Fraud Probe & to File Plan
---------------------------------------------------------------
National Events of America, Inc. and New World Events Group Inc.
ask the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York
to extend for an additional 120 days (a) the exclusive period
during which the Corporate Debtors may file plans, through February
23, 2018; and (b) the exclusive period within which the Corporate
Debtors may solicit acceptances to plans, through April 24, 2018.

The Corporate Debtors assert that this is their first request for
an extension of the Exclusive Periods. The Corporate Debtors' cases
have thus far been active with procedural matters that were
recently resolved by entry of a stipulation on consent establishing
the Estate Fiduciary's role and responsibilities.

The Corporate Debtors, at the direction of the Estate Fiduciary,
Edward J. LoBello, Esq., are investigating their prepetition
business affairs and relationships. The Estate Fiduciary and his
professionals has been (and continues to be) investigating the
fraud that alleged to have taken place, and is moving forward with
a comprehensive discovery process focused on all of these matters.

Thus far, the Estate Fiduciary's focus has principally been on
identifying and reviewing the books and records of the Corporate
Debtors, reviewing bank records, analyzing potential preference and
fraudulent transfer actions, and identifying discovery parties.

Consequently, the Corporate Debtors have embarked upon a discovery
process regarding those financial institutions and others who have
particular knowledge regarding the scheme alleged to have been
perpetrated by Nissen.

At the same time, the Corporate Debtors are in communication with
the Trustee overseeing the chapter 7 cases of the LLC Debtors
regarding his investigation and the administration of the LLC
Debtor cases.

While the Estate Fiduciary's investigation continues, the Corporate
Debtors seek an extension of the exclusive periods of time in which
they can propose a plan and solicit acceptances thereof in order to
preserve the status quo.

Moreover, the Corporate Debtors anticipate filing a motion seeking
entry of a "bar date" order, and believe that the additional time
requested will provide the Corporate Debtors with time that is
needed to formulate and propose a plan while pursuing answers and
recoveries.

A hearing on the Debtors' Motion to Extend Exclusive Periods will
be held on November 21, 2017, at 10:00 a.m.  Any objections to the
Debtors' Motion are due by November 14.

NEXT COMMUNICATIONS: Seeks January 31 Plan Exclusivity Extension
----------------------------------------------------------------
Next Communications, Inc. filed a third motion asking the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Florida to extend the
exclusivity period for the Debtor to file a plan and to obtain
acceptance of the plan through January 31, 2018.

The Debtor has had increased revenues for the month of September in
the amount of $128,000. The revenues for the month of October are
expected to be over $500,000, and the Debtor anticipates revenues
increasing to $1.0 million for December.

The Debtor tells the Court that it has been working on obtaining
funding for plan from its other affiliated companies, including
Next Group Holdings, Inc., to be paid over the contemplated plan
life for distribution to creditors holding allowed claims.

The Debtor claims that it has been working on the claims analysis
to determine expected claims filed against them. The Debtor asserts
that it still needs to resolve the claim of 100 NWT Fee and a new
claim against Verizon and Equinix for the loss of server equipment
while in their custody and control.

extended through January 31, 2018 to allow ample time to finalize a

PACE DIVERSIFIED: Hires Ehrlich Pledger as Special Counsel
----------------------------------------------------------
Pace Diversified Corporation seeks authority from the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of California to employ
Ehrlich Pledger Law, LLP, as special counsel to the Debtor.

In 2011, MacPherson Oil Company filed a multi-million dollar
lawsuit against the Debtor claiming damage to six horizontal wells
owned by Macpherson Oil and its core partners, located on the
Stephens Lease adjacent to Pace Olcese lease. After three and a
half years of litigation, the Debtor prevailed with a defense
verdict.

In November 2015, the Debtor learned of two horizontal water
injection wells drilled into the Debtor's Olcese lease by
MacPherson Oil in 2014, and that the wells had injected millions of
barrels of produced water into pace minerals estate. In November
2016, Macpherson Oil filed a Cross Complaint. The Debtor's
Travelers Insurance and Chubb policies are covering the cost of
defending the MacPherson Oil Cross Complaint.

In or about 2012, shortly after the 2011 notice from DOGGR,
MacPherson Oil sent a demand letter for royalties and performance
to the Debtor stating that the Debtor was subject to a lease on
Gardner property.

With respect to the Gardner Lease Litigation, the Debtor filed a
lawsuit in 2013, which was subsequently amended to state claims for
quite title based on adverse possession and prescriptive easement
with regard to the oil and gas underlying the Gardner property, as
well as several claims in the alternative. MacPherson Oil filed a
cross-complaint and the matter was set for trial tree times, most
recently on March 27, 2017. The court granted relief from stay and
on June 29, 2017, a Case Management Conference was held at the Kern
Couty Superior Court so that a trial date could be set.

The parties participated in a two day mediation on July 18 and July
20, 2017 to attempt to resolve the claims and cross claims
associated with the Olcese lease and Gardner lease.

Pace Diversified requires Ehrlich Pledger to represent the Debtor
in the Arbitration on November 9, 2017 to resolve the issues.

PALLET PLUS: Unsecureds To Be Paid Dividend of 20% Over 5 Years
---------------------------------------------------------------
Pallet Plus Incorporated filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the Western District of Tennessee a disclosure statement in support
of the Debtor's plan of reorganization dated Oct. 16, 2017.

Class 10 General Nonpriority Unsecured Claims holds claims totaling
$102,125.38.  They will be paid a dividend of 20% over a 60-month
period following the Effective Date.  The total amount paid this
class will be $20,425.07.  There are nine general unsecured
creditors not entitled to priority in this class.   

The Plan is a plan of reorganization and provides for distribution
of the proceeds from the Debtor's income from rental income it
receives from manufacturing, marketing and selling wooden pallets
in Memphis, Shelby County, Tennessee.

The Debtor automatic stay has enabled the officers of the Debtor to
focus on operating the business.  This has resulted in an increase
in revenues.  Based on postpetition income and expenses, the
officers of the Debtor believe the proposed reorganization is
realistic.

PEABODY ENERGY: Bankruptcy Blocks Global-Warming Suits, Judge Says
------------------------------------------------------------------
Jonathan Randles, writing for The Wall Street Journal Pro
Bankruptcy, reported that a judge has ruled Peabody Energy Corp. is
protected by its recent bankruptcy from global-warming lawsuits
brought by California coastal communities against fossil-fuel
companies.

According to the report, Judge Barry Schermer of the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Missouri ruled that
discharge and injunction provisions included in Peabody's chapter
11 plan of reorganization extinguish the lawsuits that were filed
months after the coal-mining company left bankruptcy in early
April.

The litigation was brought by the counties of San Mateo and Marin
and the city of Imperial Beach and seeks damages tied to
greenhouse-gas emissions between 1965 and 2015, the report related.
Peabody sought bankruptcy in 2016, and the ruling doesn't affect
other companies that are named in the lawsuits, filed in July, the
report further related.

According to the report, the lawsuits say Peabody for decades has
exported substantial amounts of coal from California and claim the
company has been linked to groups that have sought to undermine
climate science and the connection between emissions and global
warming and rising sea levels. Peabody has said the lawsuits lack
merit, the report related.

Fahn Kanne & Co. Grant Thornton Israel, in Tel-Aviv, Israel, issued
a "going concern" opinion on the consolidated financial statements
for the year ended Dec. 31, 2016, citing that as of Dec. 31, 2016,
the Company had an accumulated deficit of $115.6 million and
shareholders' deficit of $1.408 million.  Also, during the most
recent periods the Company has incurred losses and negative cash
flows from continuing operations and was forced to sell certain
assets and business units to obtain additional liquidity resources
to support its operations.  In addition, on Jan. 23, 2017, the
Company completed the sale of its consumer products division which
represented the sale of substantially all of the remaining
operations and assets of the Company.  These conditions, along with
other matters, raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability
to continue as a going concern.


PILGRIM'S PRIDE: S&P Downgrades CCR to 'B', Outlook Still Negative
------------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings lowered the corporate credit rating on Pilgrim's
Pride Corp. to 'B' from 'B+'. The outlook remains negative.

S&P said, "We also lowered the issue-level ratings on the company's
senior secured debt to 'BB-' from 'BB', and on the senior unsecured
debt to 'B+' from 'BB-'. The recovery ratings on these issues
remain unchanged at '1' and '2', respectively, indicating our
expectation of very high (90%-100%; rounded estimate 95%) and
substantial (70%-90%; rounded estimate 85%) recovery in the event
of a default.

"The one notch downgrade follows a similar action on the parent
company, Brazil-based protein processor JBS S.A. (see "Research
Update: JBS S.A. And JBS USA Downgraded To 'B' From 'B+' On
Upcoming Refinancing Risks; Outlook Remains Negative," published
Oct. 24), after the arrest of its two controlling shareholders in
September--one of whom was JBS' CEO--for suspected insider trading.
This could, in our view, pressure the company's refinancing
negotiations with banks until the middle of next year. Although JBS
has been reducing its short-term debt with proceeds from asset
sales, it would still face a large maturity amount in July 2018,
R$10 billion–R$13 billion, which it does not generate sufficient
cash to pay down at once. Additionally, any potential contingent
liability or developments from the ongoing investigations into its
controlling shareholders could pose additional risks for company's
access to capital and credit markets. If these risks come to bear,
JBS could have Pilgrim's Pride potentially upstream
leverage-financed dividends, or it could sell Pilgrim's Pride
assets to pay for possible future liabilities, which would probably
weaken Pilgrim's Pride's credit metrics.

"The outlook is negative, reflecting the negative ratings outlook
on JBS, and our opinion that Pilgrim's Pride will remain a highly
strategic subsidiary of JBS, which effectively ties the Pilgrim's
Pride ratings to those of its parent. The negative outlook on JBS
indicates our view of ongoing reputational and refinancing risks
over the coming months, which could translate into lower financial
flexibility, despite our expectations of still-solid operations for
the group.

"We could also downgrade Pilgrim's Pride if we downgrade JBS and it
is unable to advance debt-refinancing negotiations, pressuring its
cash position; or if Pilgrim's Pride's operating performance
unexpectedly weakens such that debt to EBITDA approaches or exceeds
5x. We believe this could occur if corn costs return to about $7
per bushel or higher and the company cannot raise prices high
enough to offset these costs; or if the company were to pursue a
large debt-financed acquisition. Pilgrim's Pride's credit metrics
could also deteriorate if JBS has Pilgrim's Pride upstream
substantial leveraged-financed dividends, or sells Pilgrim's Pride
assets to pay for possible future liabilities.

"We could revise the outlook on Pilgrim's Pride to stable if we
revise the outlook on JBS to stable, and we continue to view
Pilgrim's Pride as a highly strategic subsidiary. We could revise
the JBS outlook over the next year if the company is able to
refinance short-term debt and complete expected asset sales, thus
reducing liquidity pressures and allowing for additional debt
reduction in 2018."


PORTER BANCORP: Reports 3rd Quarter Net Income of $1.7 Million
--------------------------------------------------------------
Porter Bancorp, Inc., parent company of PBI Bank, reported
unaudited results for the third quarter of 2017.  Net income
available to common shareholders for the third quarter of 2017 was
$1.7 million, or $0.29 per basic and diluted common share, compared
with $1.3 million, or $0.22 per basic and diluted share, for the
third quarter of 2016.  Net income available to common shareholders
for the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2017, was $5.1 million, or
$0.83 per diluted common share, compared with net income available
to common shareholders of $3.8 million, or $0.66 per diluted share,
for the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2016.

The $5.1 million in net income for the first nine months of 2017
compares favorably to net income of $3.8 million for the 2016
period.  Core earnings for the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2017,
outperformed the same period in 2016.  The first nine months of
2016 benefitted from $1.9 million in negative loan loss
provisioning, $451,000 of other real estate owned income, and
$187,000 in gains on securities sales and calls.

The Company has a net deferred tax asset of $51.9 million subject
to a full valuation allowance at Sept. 30, 2017.  The Company's
ability to utilize deferred tax assets depends upon generating
sufficient future levels of taxable income.  The determination to
restore a deferred tax asset and eliminate a valuation allowance
depends upon the evaluation of both positive and negative evidence
regarding the likelihood of achieving sufficient future taxable
income levels.  A key element of the evaluation is the achievement
of pre-tax net income rather than pre-tax net loss on a cumulative
basis for the trailing three-year period.  At Sept. 30, 2017, the
Company's trailing three-year cumulative pre-tax net loss has
declined to $762,000.  The Company continues to monitor and
evaluate the positive and negative evidence and will reverse the
valuation allowance when we determine it is more-likely-than-not
the asset will be utilized to reduce future taxes payable related
to the future taxable income of the Company.

Net interest income before provision expense increased to $7.8
million for the third quarter of 2017, compared with $7.5 million
in the third quarter of 2016.  Average loans increased to $669.6
million for the 2017 quarter, compared with $626.1 million in the
2016 quarter.  Net interest margin decreased to 3.44% in the 2017
quarter, compared with 3.47% in the 2016 quarter.

The Company's yield on earning assets increased to 4.16% in the
third quarter of 2017, compared to 4.15% in the third quarter of
2016.  Its cost of interest bearing liabilities was 0.85% in the
2017 quarter, compared to 0.78% in the 2016 quarter.

There was no provision for loan losses during the first nine months
of 2017.  Ongoing improvements in asset quality and management's
assessment of risk in the loan portfolio led to negative provisions
for loan losses of $750,000 for the third quarter of 2016 and $1.9
million for the first nine months of 2016.

The allowance for loan losses to total loans was 1.32% at Sept. 30,
2017, compared to 1.53% at Sept. 30, 2016.  The reduced level of
the allowance in 2017 compared to 2016 was primarily driven by
declining charge-off levels, growth in the portfolio, and improving
trends in credit quality.  Net loan recoveries were $10,000 for the
first nine months of 2017, compared to net loan charge-offs of
$652,000 for the first nine months of 2016.  The allowance for loan
losses for loans evaluated collectively for impairment was 1.27% at
Sept. 30, 2017, and 1.51% at Sept. 30, 2016.

Non-performing assets, which include loans past due 90 days and
still accruing, nonaccrual loans and other real estate owned,
decreased to $12.1 million, or 1.26% of total assets at Sept. 30,
2017, compared with $12.8 million, or 1.34% of total assets at June
30, 2017, and $17.2 million, or 1.88% of total assets at Sept. 30,
2016.

Non-performing loans decreased to $5.8 million, or 0.85% of total
loans at Sept. 30, 2017, compared with $6.5 million, or 0.99% of
total loans at June 30, 2017, and $10.1 million, or 1.62% of total
loans at Sept. 30, 2016.  The decrease from the previous quarter
was primarily driven by $1.1 million in principal payments received
on nonaccrual loans.  OREO at Sept. 30, 2017, remained unchanged at
$6.3 million, compared with June 30, 2017, and decreased from $7.1
million at Sept. 30, 2016.  The Company acquired $130,000 in OREO
and sold $30,000 in OREO during the third quarter of 2017.  There
were $98,000 in fair value write-downs arising from lower marketing
prices or new appraisals in the first nine months of 2017, compared
with $970,000 in the first nine months of 2016.

Non-interest income for the third quarter of 2017 increased $77,000
to $1.2 million compared with $1.1 million for the third quarter of
2016.  The increase from the third quarter of 2016 was primarily
due to a $48,000 increase in service charges on deposit accounts as
well as an increase in bank card interchange fees of $31,000.

Non-interest expense decreased $745,000 to $7.2 million for the
third quarter of 2017, compared with $7.9 million for the third
quarter of 2016.  The decrease from the 2016 quarter was primarily
due to a reduction in salaries and employee benefits of
approximately $262,000, a reduction of OREO expense of $211,000,
and a reduction of litigation and loan collection expenses of
$144,000.

Non-interest expense decreased $2.6 million to $21.3 million for
the first nine months of 2017, compared with $23.9 million for the
same period in 2016.  The decrease from the first nine months of
2016 was primarily due to reductions in OREO expense of $1.2
million, professional fees of $475,000, litigation and loan
collection expenses of $454,000, and FDIC insurance expense of
$403,000.

At Sept. 30, 2017, PBI Bank's Tier 1 leverage ratio was 7.73%,
compared with 7.54% at June 30, 2017, and its Total risk-based
capital ratio was 11.10% at Sept. 30, 2017, compared with 11.50% at
June 30, 2017.

At Sept. 30, 2017, Porter Bancorp's leverage ratio was 5.85%,
compared with 5.65% at June 30, 2017, and its Total risk-based
capital ratio was 10.05%, compared with 10.44% at June 30, 2017. At
Sept. 30, 2017, PBI Bank's Common equity Tier I risk-based capital
ratio was 9.66%, and Porter Bancorp's Common equity Tier I
risk-based capital ratio was 5.49%.

The Company has a net deferred tax asset of $51.9 million at
Sept. 30, 2017, which is currently subject to a 100% valuation
allowance.

The Company's ability to utilize deferred tax assets depends upon
generating sufficient future levels of taxable income.  The
determination to restore a deferred tax asset and eliminate a
valuation allowance depends upon the evaluation of both positive
and negative evidence regarding the likelihood of achieving
sufficient future taxable income levels.  The Company established a
valuation allowance for all deferred tax assets as of Dec. 31,
2011, and the valuation allowance remains in effect as of
Sept. 30, 2017.

Under Section 382 of the Internal Revenue Code, as amended, the
Company's net operating loss carryforwards and other deferred tax
assets can generally be used to offset future taxable income and
therefore reduce federal income tax obligations.  However, the
Company's ability to use its NOLs would be limited if there was an
"ownership change" as defined by Section 382.  This would occur if
shareholders owning (or deemed to own under the tax rules) 5% or
more of the Company's voting and non-voting common shares increase
their aggregate ownership of the Company by more than 50 percentage
points over a defined period of time.

In 2015, the Company took two measures to preserve the value of its
NOLs.  First, the Company adopted a tax benefits preservation plan
designed to reduce the likelihood of an "ownership change"
occurring as a result of purchases and sales of the Company's
common shares.  Any shareholder or group that acquires beneficial
ownership of 5% or more of the Company could be subject to
significant dilution in its holdings if the Company's Board of
Directors does not approve such acquisition.  Existing shareholders
holding 5% or more of the Company will not be considered acquiring
persons unless they acquire additional shares, subject to certain
exceptions described in the plan.  In addition, the Board of
Directors has the discretion to exempt certain transactions and
certain persons whose acquisition of securities is determined by
the Board not to jeopardize the Company's deferred tax assets.  The
rights will expire upon the earlier of (i) June 29, 2018, (ii) the
beginning of a taxable year with respect to which the Board of
Directors determines that no tax benefits may be carried forward,
(iii) the repeal or amendment of Section 382 or any successor
statute, if the Board of Directors determines that the plan is no
longer needed to preserve the tax benefits, and (iv) certain other
events as described in the plan.

On Sept. 23, 2015, the Company's shareholders approved an amendment
to the Company's articles of incorporation to further help protect
the long-term value of the Company's NOLs.  The amendment provides
a means to block transfers of our common shares that could result
in an ownership change under Section 382.  The transfer
restrictions will expire on the earlier of (i) Sept. 23, 2018, (ii)
the beginning of a taxable year with respect to which the Board of
Directors determines that no tax benefit may be carried forward,
(iii) the repeal of Section 382 or any successor statute if our
Board determines that the transfer restrictions are no longer
needed to preserve the tax benefits of our NOLs, or (iv) such date
as the Board otherwise determines that the transfer restrictions
are no longer necessary.

                     About Porter Bancorp

Porter Bancorp, Inc. (NASDAQ: PBIB) -- http://www.pbibank.com-- is
a Louisville, Kentucky-based bank holding company which operates
banking centers in 12 counties through its wholly-owned subsidiary
PBI Bank.  The Company's markets include metropolitan Louisville in
Jefferson County and the surrounding counties of Henry and Bullitt,
and extend south along the Interstate 65 corridor.  The Company
serves southern and south central Kentucky from banking centers in
Butler, Green, Hart, Edmonson, Barren, Warren, Ohio and Daviess
counties.  The Company also has a banking center in Lexington,
Kentucky, the second largest city in the state.  PBI Bank is a
traditional community bank with a wide range of personal and
business banking products and services.

Porter Bancorp reported a net loss of $2.75 million for the year
ended Dec. 31, 2016, a net loss of $3.21 million for the year ended
Dec. 31, 2015, and a net loss of $11.15 million for the year ended
Dec. 31, 2014.  As of Sept. 30, 2017, the Company had $962.96
million in total assets, $922.89 million in total liabilities and
$40.06 million in total stockholders' equity.

The Company said in its 2016 Annual Report that, "Regulatory
restrictions have limited our ability to pay interest on the junior
subordinated debentures that underlie our trust preferred
securities.  If we cannot pay accrued and unpaid interest on these
securities for more than twenty consecutive quarters, we will be in
default."

"At December 31, 2016, we had an aggregate obligation of $21.4
million relating to the principal and accrued unpaid interest on
our four issues of junior subordinated debentures, which has
resulted in a deferral of distributions on our trust preferred
securities.  Although we are permitted to defer payments on these
securities for up to five years (and we commenced doing so in
2016), the deferred interest payments continue to accrue until paid
in full.  Our deferral period expires after the second quarter of
2021."

"Our holding company debt could make it difficult to recapitalize
or enter into a business combination transaction because any
investor or purchaser would effectively assume the outstanding
liability on the debt in addition to the amount of funds such
investors or purchaser would need to provide in order to
recapitalize the Bank and the Company."

secured or Priority Tax Claim, or (b) in equal quarterly payments,

PUERTO RICO: Emergency Manager to be Installed at Utility
---------------------------------------------------------
Andrew Scurria, writing for The Wall Street Journal Pro Bankruptcy,
reported that U.S. officials supervising Puerto Rico's finances are
installing an emergency manager at the island's public electricity
utility, in an attempt to course-correct a disaster response that
has come under congressional scrutiny.

According to the report, citing people familiar with the matter,
Puerto Rico's financial oversight board is appointing the emergency
manager to take over the public electricity monopoly, known as
Prepa, with an eye toward its eventual privatization.  The maneuver
would largely wrest control of the utility away from its board of
directors and Gov. Ricardo Rossello, the report said.

More than a month after Hurricane Maria knocked out power to all of
Prepa's customers, service has been restored to roughly a quarter
of them, the report related.  Prepa's contracting decisions in the
wake of the storm, including its use of a tiny Montana-based firm
to rebuild power lines, have raised concerns among members of
Congress about how the utility was managing federal disaster relief
funds, the report further related.

The federal oversight board, which Congress created last year,
responded by tapping Noel Zamot, its top official for economic
revitalization, to assume control of Prepa's reconstruction, the
report said.  He will coordinate with other federal and local
authorities, a board spokesman said, the report added.

                      About Puerto Rico

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

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

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

The Financial Oversight and Management Board later commenced Title
III cases for the Puerto Rico Sales Tax Financing Corporation

May 21, 2017.  On July 2, 2017, a Title III case was commenced for
the Puerto Rico Electric Power Authority ("PREPA").

U.S. Chief Justice John Roberts has appointed U.S. District Judge
Laura Taylor Swain to oversee the Title III cases.  The Honorable
Judith Dein, a United States Magistrate Judge for the District of
Massachusetts, has been designated to preside over matters that may
be referred to her by Judge Swain, including discovery disputes,
and management of other pretrial proceedings.

Joint administration of the Title III cases, under Lead Case No.
17-3283, was granted on June 29, 2017.

The Oversight Board has hired as advisors, Proskauer Rose LLP and
O'Neill & Borges LLC as legal counsel, McKinsey & Co. as strategic

QUADRANT 4: Seeks 90-Day Extension of Plan Exclusivity Period
-------------------------------------------------------------
Quadrant 4 System Corporation requests the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
for the Northern District of Illinois to extend by 90 days the
Debtor's exclusive periods within which to file a Chapter 11 plan
and disclosure statement and solicit acceptances therefor.

Pursuant to the Bankruptcy Code, the Debtor has the exclusive right
to file a Chapter 11 plan and disclosure statement until October
27, 2017.  The Debtor claims that it has not previously moved to
extend the Exclusivity Periods.

The Debtor relates that Stratitude, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary
of the Debtor, commenced its own chapter 11 case, Case No. 17-30724
On October 13, 2017.  Subsequently, on October 19, 2017, the Court
entered an order holding that the Debtor's case and Stratitude Case
would be jointly administered for procedural purposes only.
Likewise, the Office of the U.S. Trustee filed an amended notice of
appointment on October 24, 2017, to reflect the addition of a
Stratitude creditor to the Committee in the jointly administered
cases.

The Debtor relates that since the Petition Date, it has been
working to sell substantially all its assets, consisting of seven
business units, each commonly referred to as U.S. Solutions, Hybrid
Solutions, India Solutions -- Solutions Units -- Legacy Staffing,
QEDU Education Platform, Stratitude/Agama, and QHIX Healthcare
Platform.

On August 14, 2017, the Debtor conducted auctions which resulted in
the identification of purchasers for its Solutions Units, Legacy
Staffing, and QEDU Education Platform business units. Those
purchasers entered into Asset Purchase Agreements with the Debtor,
and the sales contemplated therein were respectively closed on
August 18 and August 28, 2017. The Court entered three orders each
dated August 18, 2017, confirming the sales and authorizing the
sale closings of the Debtor's Solutions Units, QEDU Education
Platform, and Legacy Staffing Business Units.

In addition to its successful and time-consuming sale efforts, the
Debtor claims that it has worked closely with its secured lenders
and the Committee throughout the Chapter 11 Case to obtain a
consensus and cooperation among the key constituencies where
possible. In the same vein, the Debtor asserts that it has strived
to address concerns and comments from the Office of the U.S.
Trustee. Accordingly, the Debtor contends that majority of the
effort of the Debtor and its professionals occur "behind the
scenes" in this matter.

Notwithstanding these efforts, the Debtor claims that it has also
faced opposition to many of its motions by a former labor
subcontractor, Quadrantfour Software Solutions (Pvt) Limited, that
resulted in numerous contested hearings.

Moreover, the Debtor avers that after the commencement of the
Stratitude Case, its only remaining substantial asset is the QHIX
Healthcare Platform Business Unit. The Debtor contends that it has
continued its efforts to market and sell the QHIX Healthcare
Platform Business Unit.

Notwithstanding the requested maintenance of exclusivity, the
Debtor anticipates that any plan it will file in this Chapter 11
Case (and in the Stratitude Case) will be proposed jointly with the
Committee.

A hearing to consider the Debtors' request for exclusivity
extension will be held on October 31, 2017 at 10:30 a.m.

QUOTIENT LIMITED: Studies Show Robustness of the MosaiQ Platform
----------------------------------------------------------------
Quotient Limited reported positive concordance data for the MosaiQ
blood grouping microarray generated in V&V head-to-head studies.

"V&V head-to-head data announced today represent the achievement of
an important milestone before MosaiQ enters field trials in Europe
over the next one to two months.  The strength of the data gives us
great confidence in the results of those field trials and
ultimately in our ability to commercialize MosaiQ.  Overall
concordance for blood grouping, at 99.8%, demonstates the
robustness and reliability of MosaiQ as a diagnostics platform,"
said Paul Cowan, chairman and chief executive officer of Quotient
who added, "I am also pleased that we have strengthened our balance
sheet through our recently announced private placement, which was
led by a small group of existing shareholders, with participation
by directors and management.  This financing is an added vote of
confidence for what we have achieved to date and what we have the
potential to achieve in the future."

Assay Performance

Results of the V&V head-to-head studies for the MosaiQ IH
Microarray (the initial blood grouping microarray) indicate that
MosaiQ achieved the required targeted performance compared with
predicate technologies for all assays.  The V&V data were derived
using microarrays manufactured in Quotient's validated, high-volume
manufacturing facility and run on field trial-ready instruments.

MosaiQ IH Microarray - Antibody Detection

The V&V head-to-head study for antibody detection achieved 99.0%
concordance compared with the predicate technology.  In this study
1,096 donor samples were tested.

Regulatory and Commercial Milestones For Next Twelve Months

   * European Field Trials - Quotient expects to commence European
field trials before year end

   * European Regulatory Approval - Upon the successful completion
of European field trials Quotient expects to file promptly for
European regulatory approval for MosaiQ

   * European Commercialization - Quotient has commenced the
commercialization of MosaiQ in Europe, where it has already
received invitations to participate in tenders currently expected
to be awarded in the middle of CY18

   * U.S. Field Trials and subsequent Regulatory Filing will follow
the successful completion of European field trials.

MosaiQ Platform

MosaiQ, Quotient's next-generation platform is designed to deliver
fast, comprehensive antigen typing, antibody detection and disease
screening results, using a single low volume sample in a high
throughput automated format.  MosaiQ represents a transformative
and highly disruptive unified testing platform for transfusion
diagnostics.  Feasibility has also been demonstrated with respect
to the detection of nucleic acids (DNA or RNA) using the MosaiQ
platform.  Through MosaiQ, Quotient expects to deliver substantial
value to donor testing laboratories worldwide by providing
affordable, routine comprehensive characterization and screening of
blood products, on a single automated instrument platform designed
to radically reduce labor costs and complexity associated with
existing practice.

ROBINSON OUTDOOR: Unsecured Creditors to Get $5,000 Per Month
-------------------------------------------------------------
A Second Amended Disclosure Statement is submitted by Scott Shultz,
a creditor and indirect owner of Robinson Outdoor Products, Inc.,
on October 3, 2017.

The Plan as proposed will utilize the following specific items:

     (1) Operating cash. Scott Shultz will commit to the Debtor
$25,000 in new capital as an equity contribution upon the effective
date of the Plan to prime the business.

     (2) Assets. The Debtor will be merged with Pnuma, LLC, with
the successor entity known as Pnuma, LLC. The successor entity will
be liable for all obligations of the Debtor under the Plan. Scott
Shultz is the 100% owner of Pnuma, LLC and will operate and manage
the successor entity.

     (3) Finance. Pnuma, LLC is currently well financed by two
banks and is a good and growing business with a bright future.

     (4) Place to conduct business. Robinson has a lease available
for 40,000 sq. ft. in Cannon Falls with S&S Investment Properties,
which is owned by Scott Shultz (10%) and Peggy Shultz, Scott
Shultz's spouse (90%). The lease ends on February 28, 2019 and the
monthly rental is $19,400.

     (5) Employees. Many of the most-essential employees remain
loyal and are standing by ready to go to work for Robinson. Some of
these employees have jobs with the purchaser of the business
assets.

     (6) Business Protection. For Robinson to successfully
reorganize and to regain itself in the apparel market it must be
free to run its business and not be impeded by continued
consultants and fees, misdirection of its business interests,
none-business legal fees, process fees and threats of lawsuits,
litigation, harassment and encumbrances.

     (7) Utilization of loss carry-forward. It is estimated that
Robinson has roughly $2,000,000 plus in loss carry-forward which
can be utilized under the Plan to generate additional cash flow to
pay creditors.

The Plan provides for the satisfaction in full of the allowed
secured of Associated Bank, N.A. and priority claims.

Class Two consists of all allowed unsecured claims. Based upon
filed and scheduled claims as of the date of the Plan, the Debtor
estimates that the total amount of the claims in this class,
including creditors holding non-priority unsecured claims, is
approximately $7,656,530.62. This amount includes the deficiency
claim of Associated Bank, N.A. in the amount of $1,736,789.84.

The Debtor will pay approximately 8-12% of the allowed unsecured
claims, in monthly installments of $5,000 per month for a term of
120 months, with no interest. Said distribution is dependent on
whether the Outtech Settlement is approved by the Court and
Outtech, Inc.'s claim of $2,300,000 is waived. Distributions on
these claims will be made after the priority and secured claims are
paid. This class is impaired.  

Class Three non-priority unsecured claims, whose claim is equal to
or less than $5,000, will be paid 25% of their allowed claim within
60 days of the effective date of the Plan by Pnuma, LLC.

SPI ENERGY: Incurs $220.7 Million Net Loss in 2016
--------------------------------------------------
SPI Energy Co., Ltd. filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission its annual report on Form 20-F reporting a net loss
attributable to shareholders of the Company of $220.69 million on
$140.19 million of net sales for the year ended Dec. 31, 2016,
compared to a net loss attributable to shareholders of the Company
of $184.79 million on $190.51 million of net sales for the year
ended Dec. 31, 2015.

As of Dec. 31, 2016, SPI Energy had $361.81 million in total
assets, $374.7 million in total assets and a total shareholders'
deficit of $12.92 million.

The Group has suffered significant recurring losses from operations
and operating cash outflows.  The Group has incurred a net loss of
$220,968,000 and had operating cash outflow of $47,030,000 during
the year ended Dec. 31, 2016.  As of Dec. 31, 2016, the Group had
accumulated deficit of $466,764,000.  Working capital (current
assets less current liabilities) levels have decreased
significantly from negative $79,982,000 at Dec. 31, 2015, to
negative $176,195,000 at Dec. 31, 2016.

As of Dec. 31, 2016, the convertible bonds were overdue for
repayment.

"Further, since April 2017 the Company has defaulted repayment for
significant amounts of borrowing raised from individual investors
through the on-line platform.  On May 9, 2017, the Group announced
on its on-line platform www.solarbao.com, that it had defaulted the
repayment of principal repayments and interest payments of
approximately $32,017 (RMB 222 million) in the aggregate as of the
announcement date that were due to the individual investors and
committed to repay such overdue balances including interests by
October 11, 2017.  The Group did not make full payment of the
overdue balances by such date.  Further, the Group continued to
default repayment of certain borrowings from individual investors
that were due for repayment after May 9, 2017.  On October 12,
2017, the Group made a further announcement on www.solarbao.com
that up to October 11, 2017, principal amounts and interests of
approximately $89,433 (RMB 621 million) in the aggregate were
overdue."

The Company said these and other factors raise substantial doubt as
to its ability to continue as a going concern.  Management believes
that it has developed a liquidity plan, that, if executed
successfully, will provide sufficient liquidity to meet the
Company's obligations for a reasonable period of time.

"While management believes that the measures in the liquidity plan
will be adequate to allow the Group to meet its liquidity and cash
flow requirements within one year after the date that the financial
statements are issued, there is no assurance that the liquidity
plan will be successfully implemented.  Failure to successfully
implement the liquidity plan will have a material adverse effect on
the Group's business, results of operations and financial position,
and may materially adversely affect its ability to continue as a
going concern.  The consolidated financial statements do not
include any adjustments related to the recoverability and
classification of recorded assets or the amounts and classification
of liabilities or any other adjustments that might be necessary
should the Group be unable to continue as a going concern," as
disclosed in the Report.

STONE PROJECTS: Seeks Feb. 16 Plan Filing Exclusivity Extension
---------------------------------------------------------------
Stone Projects, LLC requests the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Massachusetts to extend for approximately 90 days the
exclusive filing period for filing a Plan of Reorganization through
February 16, 2018 and the solicitation period through March 15,
2018.

The Debtor seeks an extension of the Exclusive Periods so as to
have sufficient time to develop a plan for restructuring of the
debt as well as to take advantage of the seasonal nature of the
business and the cash flow which typically increases during the
spring and summer months.

The Debtor claims that its business is somewhat seasonal as there
is lower demand by homeowners during the holiday season for
services; potential customers are less likely to undergo bathroom
and kitchen renovations during that time period.  The Debtors note
that sales are the mainstay of its business.

The Debtor's initial Exclusive Period is currently set to expire on
November 15, 2017. The Debtor asserts that this is its first
request for an extension of the Exclusive Period. Further
buttressing this request is an agreed upon continued authorization
by the Debtor's secured lender for use of cash and non-cash
collateral to the date of the requested extension of February 16,
2018.

SUPERIOR PLUS: DBRS Confirms BB(low) Sr. Unsec. Debentures Rating
-----------------------------------------------------------------
DBRS Limited confirmed the Issuer Rating and Senior Secured Notes
rating of Superior Plus LP (SP-LP or the Issuer) at BB (high) and
the Senior Unsecured Debentures rating at BB (low), based on its
unchanged recovery rating of RR6, all with Stable trends. This
action follows the conclusion of DBRS's review of Superior Plus
Corp.'s (SP-Corp; SP-LP's holding company) acquisition of Canwest
Propane's (Canwest) retail propane business in Western Canada, and
removes SP-LP's ratings from Under Review with Developing
Implications.

DBRS is subsequently discontinuing the Senior Secured Notes rating
at the request of the Issuer. The discontinuation is unrelated to
the rating action and is as a result of these Notes having been
repaid in full.

On February 13, 2017, DBRS placed the ratings of SP-LP Under Review
with Developing Implications following the announcement that
Superior Plus Corp. (SP-Corp or the Company) had agreed to acquire
from Gibson Energy Inc. its Canwest retail propane business for
$412 million in cash (the Transaction), subject to certain
customary adjustments. The Transaction was debt financed and no
debt of Canwest was assumed.

SP-Corp stated that it would fully integrate Canwest's business
into SP-LP's Energy Distribution (ED) division, and estimated that
it would achieve $20 million of annual synergies, primarily through
operating expense reductions by leveraging off of SP-LP's existing
footprint.

In its review, DBRS focused on (1) the impact on the business risk
profile from adding the Canwest assets, including the potential for
synergies and integration risks, (2) SP-Corp's consolidated pro
forma financial risk profile and commitment to and capacity for
achieving its deleveraging goals, and finally (3) confirmation that
the final terms of the Transaction were consistent with DBRS's
expectations.

During the review of the Transaction, DBRS determined that the
Transaction would have a modest positive impact on the business
risk profile. The Canwest acquisition added customers and
businesses aligned with the Company's core competencies,
strengthened SP-Corp's already leading market position in the
Canadian propane marketing and distribution market and broadened
its geographic footprint. However, a significant proportion of the
acquired Canwest business is linked primarily to the oil and gas
sector, which increases exposure to a very cyclical end-user market
and to the vagaries of weather fluctuations in Western Canada.

DBRS also reviewed the Company's post-Transaction deleveraging
plans and believes that steady deleveraging is achievable. By
DBRS's definition/calculation, debt-to-EBITDA, adjusted for
operating leases, rose to 4.2 times in the last 12 months (LTM) to
Q2 2017. While this is somewhat weak for the rating, considering
the Company's business strengths, it is not inconsistent with the
current rating. DBRS anticipates that through a combination of
modest earnings growth and debt reduction, the ratio should decline
well below 4.0 times (by DBRS's definition) over the next two
years.

When the Transaction closed, DBRS assessed the closing terms, and
aside from the Competition Bureau's requirement that less than an
estimated 5% of the Canwest retail propane volumes be divested,
determined that they were substantially consistent with
expectations. As a result, consistent with DBRS's guidance in its
February 13, 2017, press release, and also considering the
favourable results of DBRS's investigation into all other factors
affecting the Company's credit profile, DBRS has confirmed SP-LP's
ratings with Stable trends.

A concurrent assessment of other factors affecting SP-LP's credit
rating beyond the Transaction supports the action to confirm the
ratings with Stable trends. The ratings remain well supported by
SP-Corp's excellent brand strength and reputation for outstanding
customer service. The importance of the Company's fuel and chemical
products to clients and the relatively well-diversified customer
base ensures a steady level of demand for SP-Corp's products. The
economic drivers of propane demand are generally different from
those underlying demand for the Company's Specialty Chemicals
products, offering some diversification benefits over the long
term. The ratings are also supported by the Company's position as a
leading distributor of propane in Canada. Challenges include
external factors beyond the Company's control, such as seasonal and
cyclical drivers in the Company's end markets, and volatile raw
materials costs. The fragmented nature of the propane distribution
market and the financial and integration risks associated with the
Company's current acquisition strategy are also structural
challenges.

SP-Corp began the LTM period to Q2 2017 by selling its Construction
Products Distribution (CPD) business for USD 325 million. CPD was a
lower-margin business with substantial exposure to the volatile
U.S. housing market, and the divestiture enabled SP-Corp to
substantially reduce its debt and strengthen its balance sheet.
Operating results (excluding CPD) were generally modestly
favourable during the period, supported by contributions to the ED
business from the Transaction beginning as of March 1, 2017. The
Specialty Chemicals business benefited from more favourable market
conditions in 2017 for key Chlor-alkali products: caustic potash
volumes benefited from improved agricultural demand, increased
activity in the oil and gas sector was supported hydrochloric acid
sales and caustic soda conditions improved as Gulf Coast
competitors shipped more product overseas. As discussed in DBRS's
February 13, 2017, press release, significant borrowing during the
period was required to facilitate the Transaction.

DBRS anticipates that the Company will make modest progress toward
reducing its leverage over the next two years, with adjusted cash
flow-to-debt rising to over 20% and adjusted debt-to-EBITDA
improving to around 3.5 times in 2019 from 19.7% and 4.2 times,
respectively, in the LTM period to Q2 2017, both as per DBRS's
definitions. The projected metrics would continue to support the
current ratings.

Overall, the operating performance and modestly improved business
risk profile continue to support the current ratings. DBRS expects
the Company to remain acquisitive and, given the fragmented nature
of the propane distribution sector, there is no shortage of tuck-in
acquisition targets available. However, significant debt-financed
acquisitions could lead to a negative rating action, especially if
they were to be undertaken during a period of notable market
weakness. A positive rating action would likely only be considered
if the Company demonstrated a commitment to a materially stronger
financial profile over a period of years.

TOWERSTREAM CORP: Amends 5.1M Units Prospectus with SEC
-------------------------------------------------------
Towerstream Corporation filed a Form S-3/A registration statement
with the Securities and Exchange Commission in connection with the
public offering of up to 5,051,547 units, assuming a public
offering price of $4.85, the closing price of the Company's common
stock on the OTCQB on Oct. 24, 2017, with each unit consisting of
one share of its common stock, $0.001 par value per share, and one
warrant to purchase one share of its common stock.

immediately upon issuance.  The offering also includes the shares
of common stock issuable from time to time upon exercise of the
warrants.

The Company is also offering to those purchasers, whose purchase of
Class A units in this offering would result in the purchaser,
together with its affiliates and certain related parties,
beneficially owning more than 4.99% (or, at the election of the
purchaser, 9.99%) of its outstanding common stock following the
consummation of this offering, the opportunity to purchase, in lieu
of the number of Class A units that would result in ownership in
excess of 4.99% (or, at the election of the purchaser, 9.99%) of
its outstanding common stock, a unit consisting of (i) one share of
Series I convertible preferred stock, par value $.001 per share,
convertible at any time at the holder's option into shares of
common stock equal to $1,000 divided by $___, the public offering
price per Class A unit and (ii) warrants to purchase a number of
shares of common stock equal to the number of shares of common
stock issuable upon conversion of one share of Series I Preferred
Stock.  The warrants included in the Class B units will have the
same terms as the warrants included in the Class A units. The Class
B units will not be issued or certificated.  Purchasers will

last reported sale price for its common stock on the OTCQB was
$4.85 per share.

There is no established public trading market for the Series I
Preferred Stock, and the Company does not expect a market to
develop.  In addition, the Company does not intend to apply for
listing of the Series I Preferred Stock on any national securities
exchange or other trading market.  Without an active trading
market, the liquidity of the Series I Preferred Stock will be
limited.

In connection with the listing of the Company's shares of common
stock and warrants on the NASDAQ Capital Market, the Company
implemented a 1 for 75 reverse split of its issued and outstanding
common stock on Sept. 29, 2017.  All share and per share data in

TRILOGY ENERGY: DBRS Hikes Issuer Rating & Sr. Unsec. Notes to BB
-----------------------------------------------------------------
DBRS Limited upgraded the Issuer Rating and Senior Unsecured Notes
(the Notes) ratings of Trilogy Energy Corporation (Trilogy or the
Company) to BB, from B (low), with Stable trends. The recovery
rating of the Notes is upgraded to RR3 from RR4. The upgrades
remove the ratings from Under Review with Positive Implications
where they were placed on July 10, 2017, following the announcement
by Trilogy that it had agreed to merge with Paramount Resources
Ltd. (Paramount) on the basis of an exchange of Trilogy common
shares for Paramount common shares.

At the time of the merger announcement, Paramount also announced
that it had entered into an agreement with certain subsidiaries of
Apache Corporation to acquire Apache Canada Ltd. (Apache Canada)
for $460 million in cash. Concurrent with the rating upgrades, and
at the request of Paramount, DBRS has withdrawn all of the
Company's ratings.

The merger with Paramount and Paramount's acquisition of Apache
Canada have been successfully completed. The combined business is
now carried on as Paramount. Trilogy's $300 million of Notes remain
outstanding and are now obligations of Paramount on a consolidated
basis. DBRS's Issuer Rating and the rating of the Notes is based on
the assessment of Paramount as the merged entity, which includes
the acquisition of Apache Canada.

DBRS notes that the merged entity's business risk profile relative
to Trilogy as a stand-alone entity has improved significantly;
notably, the company size has increased more than threefold. Based
on second quarter 2017 pro forma figures, sales volumes increased
to 79,000 barrels of oil equivalents (boe)/day compared to Trilogy
on a stand-alone basis of 21,669 boe/day; gross proved reserves,
based on an updated reserve report as of June 1, 2017, increased to
344.8 million boe compared to Trilogy's gross proved reserves (on a
stand-alone basis) of 93.2 million boe. The merged entity also has
(1) a more diversified portfolio of producing properties in Western
Canada, (2) greater flexibility in allocating capital among its
core operating assets and (3) the ability to gain efficiencies and
optimize the combined entity's processing and transportation
infrastructure. Furthermore, the merger establishes Paramount as a
leading Montney producer in Canada.

The pro forma balance sheet and credit metrics of the merged entity
also improved materially compared to Trilogy as a stand-alone
entity. Pro forma as of June 30, 2017, the merged entity's
outstanding debt is $462 million, composed of $300 million of
Trilogy Notes and $161.9 million drawn on Paramount's $300 million
credit facility. In addition, pro forma, the merged entity's cash
position is $131.7 million. The liquidity position of the merged
entity is sufficient with the current cash position and available
headroom on Paramount's credit facility. Overall, DBRS's assessment
of Trilogy as a result of the completed combination with Paramount
results in a four-notch upgrade in the Issuer Rating and the rating
of the Notes to BB from B (low). The recovery rating on the Notes
is also upgraded to RR3 from RR4. However, since the Notes are
rated within the BB range there is no notching up for a higher
recovery rating.

With the Under Review with Positive Implications status resolved,
and as noted per the request of Paramount, DBRS at the same time is
discontinuing the rating of the Notes and the Issuer Rating of
Trilogy. DBRS notes that the withdrawal of the ratings is not an
expression of the credit quality of the issuer nor the credit
quality of the Notes.

Notes: All figures are in Canadian dollars unless otherwise noted.

WALTER INVESTMENT: Hikes Committed Portion of Credit Facility $400M
-------------------------------------------------------------------
As previously disclosed, Walter Investment Management Corp. has
entered into (i) an Amended and Restated Restructuring Support
Agreement with lenders holding, as of Oct. 20, 2017, more than 48%
of the loans and/or commitments outstanding under the Credit
Agreement, and (ii) a Restructuring Support Agreement with senior
unsecured noteholders holding, as of Oct. 20, 2017, more than 50%
of the Senior Notes.  Pursuant to the RSAs, WIMC has agreed to a
restructuring of its capital structure that is contemplated to be
implemented through a Chapter 11 proceeding consistent with the
terms and subject to the conditions set forth in the RSAs.

                     Credit Suisse Amendment

On Oct. 18, 2017, Ditech Financial LLC, a wholly-owned, indirect
subsidiary of WIMC, and WIMC entered into Amendment No. 3 to the
Amended and Restated Master Repurchase Agreement, dated as of Nov.
18, 2016, among Credit Suisse First Boston Mortgage Capital LLC,
Credit Suisse AG, acting through its Cayman Islands Branch, as
committed buyer and buyer, Alpine Securitization Ltd, as buyer,
Ditech, as seller and WIMC, as guarantor, and a related side letter
amendment, pursuant to which, among other things, the committed
portion of the CS-Ditech Facility was increased from $250 million
to $400 million, with the total capacity remaining at $500
million.

The CS-Ditech Facility was also amended to provide for the
following additional events of default: (i) an event of default
under the RMS Repurchase Agreement; and (ii) failure to execute a
margin, netting, and set-off agreement among Credit Suisse
Securities (USA) LLC and the Administrative Agent (and with respect
to CS, any Person who, directly or indirectly is in control of, or
is controlled by, or is under common control with CS), Ditech,
Reverse Mortgage Solutions, Inc., a wholly-owned, indirect
subsidiary of WIMC, and RMS REO BRC, LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary
of RMS, and acknowledged by WIMC, in form and substance reasonably
acceptable to the Administrative Agent, on or prior to Dec. 1,
2017.  The Netting Agreement is contemplated to provide for CS to
have certain margin, netting and/or set-off rights with respect to
property and/or funds held, pledged or otherwise owned or owing to
CS in connection with obligations of Ditech and the RMS Parties
under various existing or future lending, repurchase or derivative
agreements entered into between or among any of CS, Ditech and/or
the RMS Parties.  The effect of such an arrangement may provide
for, among other things, cross-collateralization between assets of
Ditech and the RMS Parties.

Additionally, the Termination Date of the CS-Ditech Facility was
extended from Nov. 17, 2017 to Dec. 29, 2017, upon satisfaction of
the following conditions: (i) no Event of Default has occurred and
is continuing; and (ii) receipt by the Administrative Agent of (x)
copies of duly executed and delivered RSAs, which shall not contain
any material inconsistencies with the drafts provided by WIMC to
the Administrative Agent on or prior to the date of the CS-Ditech
Facility and (y) an amendment to the RMS Repurchase Agreement
amending the events of default thereunder to include a
cross-default provision relating to the Ditech Repurchase
Agreement, substantially similar to the cross-default provision in
the CS-Ditech Amendment.  There is no guarantee that such Extension
Conditions shall occur.

In addition, covenants requiring the CS-Ditech Facility to account
for no more than a third of Ditech's total committed financing
capacity and requiring that Ditech maintain other master repurchase
agreements with other counterparties in an amount equal to at least
$500 million have been removed in the amended CS-Ditech Facility.
In consideration for the amendment to the CS-Ditech Facility,
Ditech has agreed to pay a fee to the Administrative Agent, which
fee will be fully applied against any future arrangement fees,
structuring fees, commitment fees, underwriting fees, upfront fees
and/or similar fees paid or payable to the Administrative Agent or
any of its Affiliates (on or prior to Dec. 29, 2017) pursuant to
any upsizing, refinancing or replacement of one or more warehouse
facilities or other advance line of credit facilities of WIMC or
any of its subsidiaries in connection with or in contemplation of
the Restructuring.  Furthermore, certain other economic terms were
also amended pursuant to the CS-Ditech Facility Amendment.

WIMC has experienced reductions in availability under certain of
its warehouse and advance facilities, through reductions in advance
rates, changes to the terms of such facilities and otherwise, which
has negatively impacted WIMC's available liquidity and capital
resources.  The increase in funding available under the CS-Ditech
Facility is expected to better position WIMC to ensure it has
sufficient liquidity in the near-term, though no assurance can be
given that WIMC will be successful in maintaining adequate
financing capacity with its current or prospective lenders.

                     About Walter Investment

Walter Investment Management Corp. --
http://www.walterinvestment.com/-- is an independent servicer and
originator of mortgage loans and servicer of reverse mortgage
loans.  The Company services a wide array of loans across the
credit spectrum for its own portfolio and for GSEs, government
agencies, third-party securitization trusts and other credit
owners.  Through the consumer, correspondent and wholesale lending
channels, the Company originates and purchases residential mortgage
loans that are predominantly sold to GSEs and government agencies.
The Company also operates two supplementary businesses; asset
receivables management and real estate owned property management
and disposition.  Based in Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, the
Company has approximately 4,500 employees and services a diverse
loan portfolio.

"The Company is facing certain challenges and uncertainties that
could have significant adverse effects on its business, liquidity
and financing activities," as disclosed in the Company's Form 10-Q
report for the period ended June 30, 2017.  "The Company may be
adversely impacted by the following factors, among others: failure
to maintain sufficient liquidity to operate its servicing and
lending businesses due to the inability to renew, replace or extend
its advance financing or warehouse facilities on favorable terms,
or at all; failure to comply with covenants contained in its debt
agreements or obtain any necessary waivers or amendments; failure
to resolve its obligation with respect to the remaining mandatory
clean-up calls; and failure to successfully restructure its
corporate debt."

The Company reported a net loss of $833.9 million for the year
ended Dec. 31, 2016, a net loss of $263.2 million in 2015, and a
net loss of $110.3 million in 2014.  As of June 30, 2017, Walter
Investment had $15.59 billion in total assets, $15.70 billion in
total liabilities and a total stockholders' deficit of $112.98
million.

Ernst & Young LLP, in Tampa, Florida, issued a "going concern"
opinion on the consolidated financial statements for the year ended
Dec. 31, 2016, noting that on July 31, 2017 the Company entered
into a Restructuring Support Agreement that provides for a
prepackaged plan of restructuring in the event the Company is
unsuccessful in otherwise restructuring its corporate debt.  The
prepackaged plan would provide court relief under the provisions of
Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code.  These conditions, the auditors
said, raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to
continue as a going concern.

                           *    *    *

In July 2017, S&P Global Ratings lowered its long-term issuer
credit rating on Walter Investment Management Corp. to 'CCC-' from
'CCC'.  The outlook is negative.

In August 2017, Moody's Investors Service downgraded Walter
Investment's corporate family rating to 'Caa3' from 'Caa2'.  The
rating action follows the company's announcement that it has
entered into a restructuring support agreement with more than 50%
of senior term loan lenders.


WALTER INVESTMENT: Obtains Limited Waivers from Barclays

previously disclosed, as of Oct. 25, 2017, holders of approximately
89% of the Term Loans are parties to the Term Lender RSA and
approximately 71% of the Senior Notes are parties to the Senior
Noteholder RSA.  Accordingly, pursuant to the terms of the RSAs,
the Support Effective Date as defined in the RSAs occurred on Oct.
25, 2017.

and financing activities," as disclosed in the Company's Form 10-Q
report for the period ended June 30, 2017.  "The Company may be
adversely impacted by the following factors, among others: failure
to maintain sufficient liquidity to operate its servicing and
lending businesses due to the inability to renew, replace or extend
its advance financing or warehouse facilities on favorable terms,

unsuccessful in otherwise restructuring its corporate debt.  The
prepackaged plan would provide court relief under the provisions of

WESTINGHOUSE ELECTRIC: Judge OKs Emergency Funding for Nuclear Biz
------------------------------------------------------------------
Tom Corrigan, writing for The Wall Street Journal Pro Bankruptcy,
reported that Westinghouse Electric Co. won court approval to send
millions of dollars in emergency funding to subsidiaries in Europe,
the Middle East and Africa.

According to the report, following a hearing at the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court in New York, which is overseeing Westinghouse's
multibillion-dollar chapter 11 case, Judge Michael Wiles approved
changes to the terms of an existing $800 million loan meant to help
Westinghouse stabilize its global business and hang on to
customers.

Westinghouse says parts of its global nuclear business that aren't
in chapter 11 are at risk of running out of cash and need money to
prop up their balance sheets or to take advantage of potentially
lucrative opportunities, the report related.

For example, Italian joint-venture Mangiarotti SpA would have been
forced to shut down by the end of the month without the new
financing, court papers say, the report further related.  Owned by
a British Westinghouse affiliate and Toshiba Corp. , Mangiarotti
provides critical components for one of Westinghouse's largest
customers, the report said.

Another joint-venture in need of funding is Fluor Westinghouse
Liquid Waste Services LLC, a business that could be in line for a
multiyear, multibillion-dollar U.S. Energy Department contract to
clean up the Savannah River, the report added.  If it wins the
contract, Fluor Westinghouse would need financing to get up and
running, and Westinghouse's share must come from the bankruptcy
loan, the company said, the report further related.

The bankruptcy court ruling frees up as much as $38 million for a
handful of affiliates most in need of fresh cash, the report noted.
A general bucket of money the company is allowed to use to support
affiliates that aren't part of the bankruptcy case will be
increased to $25 million from $10 million, the report said.

                  About Westinghouse Electric

Westinghouse Electric Company LLC --
http://www.westinghousenuclear.com/-- is a U.S. based nuclear
power company founded in 1999 that provides design work and
start-up help for new nuclear power plants and makes many of the
components.  Westinghouse manufactures and supplies the commercial
fuel products needed to run the plants, and it offers training,
engineering, maintenance, and quality management services.  Almost
50% of nuclear power plants around the world and about 60% of U.S.
plants are based on Westinghouse's technology.  Westinghouse's
world headquarters are located in the Pittsburgh suburb
ofnCranberry Township, Pennsylvania.

On Oct. 16, 2006, Westinghouse Electric was sold for $5.4 billion
to a group comprising of Toshiba (77% share), partners The Shaw
Group (20% share), and Ishikawajima-Harima Heavy Industries Co.
Ltd. (3% share).  After purchasing part of Shaw's stake in 2013,
Japan-based conglomerate Toshiba obtained ownership of 87% of
Westinghouse.

Amid cost overruns at U.S. nuclear reactors it was building,
Westinghouse Electric Company LLC, along with 29 affiliates, filed
voluntary petitions for relief under Chapter 11 of the U.S.
Bankruptcy Code (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 17-10751) on March 29,
2017.  The petitions were signed by AlixPartners' Lisa J. Donahue,
chief transition and development officer.

The Debtors disclosed total assets of $4.32 billion and total
liabilities of $9.39 billion as of Feb. 28, 2017.

The Hon. Michael E. Wiles presides over the cases.

Weil, Gotshal & Manges LLP serves as counsel to the Debtors.  The
Debtors hired AlixPartners LLP as financial advisor; PJT Partners
Inc. as investment banker; Kurtzman Carson Consultants LLC as
claims and noticing agent; K&L Gates as special counsel; and KPMG

activities related to certain AP1000 nuclear plants located in
Georgia and South Carolina.


WESTINGHOUSE ELECTRIC: Scana Urged to Shoulder Nuclear Project Cost
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Jonathan Randles, writing for The Wall Street Journal Pro
Bankruptcy, reported that South Carolina Gov. Henry McMaster is
calling on Scana Corp. to bear costs connected to its failed
nuclear project now subject to investigations by federal and state
authorities and investor lawsuits, as opposed to its customers.

According to the report, Gov. McMaster, in a letter to Scana Chief
Executive Kevin Marsh, called on the utility holding company to
halt collections of $37 million per month from ratepayers for the
V.C. Summer Nuclear Station in Jenkinsville, S.C., and use a
settlement with Toshiba Corp. to refund customers.

The letter is part of a push by South Carolina officials to shield
customers from having to pick up the tab for the canceled project,
which is caught up in the chapter 11 bankruptcy proceedings of
project contractor Westinghouse Electric Co., a Toshiba subsidiary,
the report related.  South Carolina's utility regulator made a
similar request in September on behalf of ratepayers, the report
further related.

"I believe this is the right thing to do under these
circumstances," Gov. McMaster said in the letter, the report
related.  "It is unreasonable and oppressive for Scana to require
its customers to bear the burden of actions and decisions in which
customers played no part and over which they had no control."

XCELERATED LLC: Intends to File Chapter 11 Plan by January 29
-------------------------------------------------------------
Xcelerated, LLC, asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern
District of Kentucky to extend the exclusive periods for the Debtor
to file a chapter 11 plan and to solicit acceptances of such plan
for a period of three months or to January 29 and March 26, 2018,
respectively.

The Debtor recounts that in the three and a half months since the
commencement of the Chapter 11 Case, the Debtor has, among other
things: (a) maintained and stabilized its business operations; and
(b) and moved for authority for a sale under section 363, which
identified Direct Performance Data, Inc. as the stalking horse
bidder.

Authenticom, Inc., 621 Holdings, Inc., f/k/a Xcelerated
Investments, Inc., and M1 Data and Analytics, LLC informally and/or
formally objected to the Initial Sale Motion. On July 13, 2017, at
the continued hearing on the Sale Motion, the Debtor's counsel
informed the Court that the Debtor was negotiating with these
objecting creditors and Direct Performance Data, Inc. in an attempt
to arrive at agreeable sales procedures terms.

The Debtor subsequently learned that Authenticom and 621 Holdings
had reached an agreement in principle to sell their claims against
the Debtor to M1 Data, which intended to use such claims to acquire
the Debtor's business as a going-concern. Consequently, on July 28,
2017, the Debtor thereafter filed its Motion seeking approval of
the sale to M1 Data. Unfortunately, the Debtor relates that the
deal for the sale of the claims of Authenticom and 621 Holdings to
M1 Data fell through on the eve of the August 2, 2017 hearing on
the M1 Data Sale Motion.

Since the deal and sale process fell through, the Debtor asserts
that it has continued to evaluate its prospects for reorganization
or an alternative sale process, and has continued to negotiate with
its creditors. The Debtor tells the Court that it has been in
ongoing discussions with creditors regarding potential options for
resolving the Chapter 11 Case.

The Debtor tells the Court that it intends to pursue a sale under
section 363 of the Bankruptcy Code. Although the Debtor has not yet
completed negotiations with creditors regarding a sale process,
chapter 11 plan, and the Debtor's exit-strategy from the Chapter 11
Case, the Debtor believes that it will reach a consensus with these
parties and that it will be able to propose a confirmable plan.

Absent the requested extension, the Exclusivity Periods are slated
to expire on October 27 and December 26, 2017, respectively.
Accordingly, the Debtor believes that a three-month extension of
both the Debtor's Exclusive Periods is necessary and warranted.

Xcelerated, LLC -- http://www.xcelerated.com-- is a provider of

The Debtor sought protection under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy
Code (Bankr. E.D. Ky. Case No. 17-20886) on June 29, 2017.  Pam
Lang, its managing member, signed the petition.

At the time of the filing, the Debtor disclosed it had estimated
assets of less than $1 million and liabilities of $1 million to $10
million.

Bingham Greenebaum Doll LLP is the Debtor's bankruptcy counsel.

The Hon. Gregory R. Schaaf presides over the case.


XPERI CORP: S&P Assigns 'BB-' Corp. Credit Rating, Outlook Stable
-----------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings assigned its 'BB-' corporate credit rating to
San Jose, Calif.-based Xperi Corp. while withdrawing its ratings on
Tessera Technologies, Inc. The outlook is stable.

S&P said, "At the same time, we affirmed our 'BB-' issue-level
rating on Xperi's $600 million senior secured term loan B. The '3'
recovery rating indicates our expectation of meaningful (50%-70%;
rounded estimate of 50%) recovery in the event of a payment
default.

"The rating on Xperi reflects our view of the company's volatile
operating history, reliance on litigation to generate revenues,
high customer concentration (with the top four customers
representing more than 40% of revenues), and leverage in the mid-3x
area. This is offset by the company's successful integration of the
DTS acquisition, strong free cash flow generation, and its
intention to put cash flow toward debt repayment. Xperi is
currently in litigation for intellectual property (IP) infringement
against Samsung and Broadcom. The company expects resolution on the
Broadcom litigation in early 2018. We view long-drawn litigation to
be negative for the rating.

"The stable outlook reflects Xperi's successful integration of the
stand-alone Tessera and DTS businesses, and our view that despite
ongoing litigation with Samsung and Broadcom, the company will
generate discretionary cash flow (free cash flow less dividends) of
around $100 million over the next 12 months.

"We could lower the rating on Xperi if the company's leverage is
sustained above the mid-3x area over the next 12 months, if there
is no resolution on ongoing litigation, or if we view future
profitability of the company to be weaker as a result of new
licensing deals.

"While unlikely over the near term given ongoing litigation, we
could consider an upgrade if favorable litigation outcome results
in improved liquidity and financial metrics, and if the company
uses its liquidity to pay down debt, such that leverage falls to
less than the 2x area."


YOSI SAMRA: Seeks to Hire Savvy Fare as New Accountant
------------------------------------------------------
Yosi Samra, Inc. seeks approval from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the Southern District of New York to hire Savvy Fare, LLC as its

restructuring; and assist in developing a long-term business plan
for the Debtor and a plan for the payment of claims of its
creditors.  The firm will replace Danziger & Company, the Debtor's
previous accountant.

Robert Castro, partner and managing member of Savvy, will charge an

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

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

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

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

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

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

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