With the exception of the 2017 ad valorem tax lien, the sale of the
Property is free and clear of all liens, claims, encumbrances,

Properties will be paid at closing, and the seller's portion of all
normal and customary closing costs and fees, including but not

               About 1776 American Properties IV

Historically, 1776 American Properties IV LLC, et al., were
companies managed by Jeff Fisher.  In 2008, Mr. Fisher began
investing in real estate in the Houston area.  Mr. Fisher worked
with friends and other business contacts in Asia who decided to
invest in special purpose entities organized in the Cayman
Islands.

The offshore companies would then loan money to Delaware based
limited liability companies, who in turn invested in real estate in
the United States.  By 2012, the U.S. based LLC's had acquired over
70 properties worth over $10 million.  As of January 2017, 1776
American Properties, et al., own 116 rental single family homes /
apartment units, five single family homes, and 76 vacant lots.  In
addition, 1776 IV, 1776 V, 1776 VII and 1776 VIII hold promissory
notes and profit sharing arrangements with various builders on
approximately 58 lots.

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

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

The cases are assigned to Judge Karen K. Brown.

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

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

------------------------------------------------------
Judge Cynthia A. Norton the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Western
District of Missouri, has entered an order terminating the
automatic stay in the bankruptcy case of 417 Rentals, LLC, with
respect to lender Central Bank of the Ozarks.

Judge Norton acted on the Motion for Relief from Automatic Stay and
the Motion to Prohibit Use of Cash Collateral filed by Central Bank
of the Ozarks, and the Parties' agreement on the disposition of the
motions.

As of the Petition Date, 417 Rentals owed Central Bank
approximately $1,300,406, secured by 53 residential rental
properties of the Debtor located in Springfield, Greene County,
Missouri, including the leases and rents therefrom.

According to the Court, the automatic stay is terminated as of
November 9, 2017, subject to a voluntary stay of execution by
Central Bank on these terms and conditions:

     (a) 417 Rentals and Christopher Gatley, its member, must
deliver to Central Bank a bona fide written contract for the
purchase of all the Collateral duly executed by H&M Properties by
November 17, 2017.

     (b) The sale of the Collateral to H&M Properties must close by
January 31, 2018.

     (c) Central Bank must receive net proceeds of $900,000 in
immediately available funds satisfactory to the Bank in its sole
discretion.

     (d) Until the Closing Date, 417 Rentals and Gatley must
continue to:

            (i) make monthly interest payments to Central Bank on
the Promissory Notes subject to the Central Bank's Motion;

           (ii) keep the collateral fully insured and segregate
payments for taxes;

          (iii) make all necessary repairs, maintenance and
improvements to the Collateral; and

           (iv) promptly respond to and cure any deficiencies or
complaints by any governmental unit involved in code violations or
other regulatory requirements.

     (e) Upon receipt of the Payoff Amount, Central Bank will
execute and deliver to 417 Rentals and Gatley or the closing agent
the deeds of release to all the Collateral.

     (f) If 417 Rentals and Gatley fail to perform or satisfy any
of the conditions of the Agreed Order, Central Bank may exercise
all rights and remedies under the Loan Documents according to
applicable non-bankruptcy law.

     (g) Upon receipt of the Payoff Amount, Central Bank will waive
any deficiency balance due on its indebtedness as to 417 Rentals
and Gatley.

     (h) Central Bank will retain all payments and escrow deposits
made by 417 Rentals and Gately through the date of closing,
provided that, the amounts deposited in escrow for taxes will be
paid to the Greene County Collector in payment of 2017 real estate
taxes.

ADVANTAGE SALES: S&P Retains 'B' CCR on Watch Positive Pending IPO
------------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said its ratings on Irvine, Calif.-based
Advantage Sales & Marketing Inc., including the 'B' corporate
credit rating, remain on CreditWatch with positive implications,
where S&P originally placed it on May 8, 2017.

S&P said, "We have extended the CreditWatch on our ratings as we
expect the initial public offering (IPO) will happen in the first
half of 2018. We originally placed the ratings on CreditWatch
following Advantage's parent holding company filing documents with
the Securities and Exchange Commission indicating it intends to
proceed with an IPO. Though the company currently has significant
leverage, with debt to EBITDA around 7x, we expect the company to
use proceeds from the IPO to pay down debt. Moreover, we believe
the sponsors' influence on the company's financial policy will
decline following the IPO.

"We intend to resolve the CreditWatch placement when the company
completes its IPO and announces its debt repayment plans and
information about sponsors' ownership post-IPO becomes available.

"We could raise the ratings if the sponsors' ownership falls below
40% and the company uses a portion of the proceeds to reduce debt.
Alternatively, we could affirm our 'B' corporate credit rating if
Advantage elects not to pursue an IPO."

Advantage Sales & Marketing Inc. provides marketing services.  The
Company offers integrated sales services, business process
outsourcing, retail services, brand and space management, and
marketing services. ASM serves customers in the United States.


ALBAUGH LLC: S&P Rates New Sr. Secured Credit Facilities at 'BB'
----------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings assigned its 'BB' issue-level rating and '1'
recovery rating to Ankeny, Iowa-based agrochemical producer Albaugh
LLC's proposed senior secured credit facilities, which consist of a
$100 million revolver due 2022 and a $325 million term loan B due
2024. The '1' recovery rating indicates expectation for very high
(90%-100%; rounded estimate: 90%) recovery in the event of a
payment default.

The company plans to use proceeds from the new debt issuance to
fully repay the outstanding term loan due 2021. S&P expects to
withdraw its ratings on this term loan once the transaction closes
and it is repaid in full.

S&P's existing ratings on Albaugh, including the 'B+' corporate
credit rating, and positive rating outlook are unchanged.

ALEVO MANUFACTURING: Hilco Joint Venture to Liquidate Assets
------------------------------------------------------------
Alevo Manufacturing, Inc. and Alevo USA, Inc. ask the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of North Carolina to
authorize (i) the sale of their equipment and other tangible
personal property, including inventory, at auction; and (ii) the
employment of a contractual joint venture composed of Hilco
Industrial, LLC, Branford Auctions, LLC, and Joseph Finn Co., Inc.
as the liquidator.

The Debtors obtained post-petition loans from Bootsmead LeaseCo,
LLC, who is also the landlord of the Concord facility occupied by
the Debtors.  As of Nov. 27, 2017, a total of $3,881,000 had been
loaned to the Debtors, most of which has been borrowed by Alevo
Manufacturing, with total borrowing up to $5.7 million.  The DIP
Loans are secured by a first lien on all existing and after
acquired assets of the Debtors and their subsidiaries that were not
otherwise subject to valid pre-bankruptcy liens.

Jonas & Redmann Automationstechnik GmbH has asserted a lien on
certain equipment that is part of the production line.  The amount
of the J&R claim is undetermined, and Manufacturing has filed an
adversary proceeding to avoid the lien.

Immediately before the chapter 11 cases, Alevo Group SA loaned
$660,000 to the Debtors secured by a lien on most assets of the
Debtors.  Alevo Group agreed to subordinate its lien on assets of
the Debtors to the DIP Loans.

The Debtors have explored sale of their assets through liquidators
and investment banks, and even filed a motion to employ an
investment banker, but it has become more clear during the chapter
11 case that Manufacturing cannot achieve a sale of its production
line to an end user without such user being able to acquire the
intellectual property and other related assets needed to be able to
produce and sell the GridBank.

Alevo Group SA, the parent entity of the Debtors, and Alevo
International SA, an affiliate of the Debtors and holder of the
intellectual property, are involved in a Swiss insolvency
proceeding.  Depending on the outcome of the foreign proceedings,
the availability of the intellectual property and other assets
which are the subject of the foreign proceedings for marketing and
joint sale is uncertain and outside the control of the Debtors.

Therefore, the Debtors will proceed with liquidation of assets at
the Concord facility.  If, during the sale process, a solution
evolves with the Parent Companies that would enable a sale of the
intellectual property and the Debtor's assets, the auction will be
cancelled under terms agreed with Hilco.

The Debtors wish to employ Hilco because of its experience and
qualifications.  Members of the Hilco joint venture are successful
international industrial auctioneers, liquidators and appraisers.
They selected Hilco after considering proposals from several other
liquidators, and Hilco was chosen because of its reputation,
interest, diligence in understanding the Debtors' assets, and the
competiveness of its proposal regarding expenses, commission and
the "break up" fee.

In return for the services enumerated in the Asset Marketing
Agreement ("AMA"), Hilco will receive payment form the Gross
Proceeds of $75,000 representing the amount Hilco will be
reimbursed for all reasonable expenses.  The reimbursable Expense
Budget can only be exceeded with the consent of the Debtors and
Lender.  Regarding allocation of the Expense Budget between USA and
Manufacturing, USA should have few assets, if any, included in the
sale, but will pay its prorata share of expenses depending upon the
Gross Proceeds available to the Debtors.

The commission on sale of the assets will be paid through a "Buyers
Premium" of 16%, an industry standard commission paid by the buyers
to Hilco upon the amount of the highest bid(s).

If the Debtors are able to locate a buyer that intends to resume
production of the GridBank, or if the Lender submits a credit bid
to acquire all the assets prior to the auction, the Debtors may
terminate the Agreement in exchange for payment to Hilco of (i) a
$100,000 termination fee plus (ii) reimbursement of actual expenses
incurred through the date of termination, up to but not exceeding
the Expense Budget.

An auction sale will occur no later than Jan. 31, 2018, and Hilco
will direct any purchasers to remove the purchased assets from the
premises within 30 days after the sale, unless otherwise agreed by
the Landlord.  It is possible that parties will make very
attractive offers to Hilco to purchase certain of the assets prior
to the auction, and if such an offer occurs, Hilco will consult
with the Debtors and any lienholders to determine whether such
offer should be accepted and closed.

In any event, the Lender, as landlord of the Concord premises, will
permit Hilco and the buyers of the assets to remove the assets
through 30 days after the sale.

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

   http://bankrupt.com/misc/Alevo_Manufacturing_218_Sales.pdf

The Debtors ask approval of Hilco, and they ask that the Court
approves the payment of all fees and reimbursement of expenses
thereunder to Hilco free and clear of all liens, claims and
encumbrances; that all such payment of fees and reimbursement of
expenses will be made without further order of the Bankruptcy Court
and in accordance with the AMA; that Hilco is not required to
maintain time records or file interim or final fee applications;
and that Hilco is authorized to provide the services to the Debtors
without the necessity of compliance with any federal, state or
local statute or ordinance, contractual provision or licensing
requirement affecting store and plant closings, "going out of
business," bulk transfers, liquidation or auction sales, or
regulating advertising, including signs, banners, or posting of
signage.

The Debtors ask approval of the Court for sale of the assets free
and clear of interests.  The Lender and Alevo Group have agreed to
the transfer of their liens to the proceeds of sale.  Even though
Jonas & Redmann's purported lien on certain equipment may not be
resolved before the auction, any proceeds of the Jonas & Redmann
equipment will be segregated and held for the benefit of Jonas &
Redmann pending resolution of the Adversary Proceeding filed by
Manufacturing to resolve the lien.

AMERICAN FUEL: Seeks to Use Cash Collateral Through Dec. 30
-----------------------------------------------------------
American Fuel Cell and Coated Fabrics Company files an amended
emergency motion asking the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Northern
District of Texas to authorize and approve its use of cash
collateral in accordance with a budget on an interim basis, and
thereafter on a permanent basis.

The Debtor proposes to use cash collateral to pay expenses in
accordance with the Budget.  The Debtor has submitted to the Court
a five-week budget, which earmarks $1,575,166 for total expenses
during the period from November 27 to December 30, 2017.

The Debtor asserts that the access to its cash collateral is
necessary to prevent immediate and irreparable harm to its Chapter
11 estate as it will permit the Debtor to continue its business and
enable the Debtor to satisfy its direct operating expenses and
other expenses of the estate.  The Debtor further asserts that the
continued use of cash collateral will maximize the possible return
to its creditors.

The Debtor is a borrower under that certain Loan Agreement with
Fidelity Bank.  In connection with the Loan Agreement, the Debtor
granted Fidelity Bank a first priority security interest and lien
upon the collateral which includes, among other things, the
Debtor's present and future accounts, deposit accounts, inventory,
equipment and products and proceeds of the foregoing to secure the
Debtor's obligation to Fidelity Bank. As of the Petition Date, the
Debtor was indebted to Fidelity Bank under the loan documents in
the aggregate outstanding principal amount of $6,100,000.

The Debtor and Fidelity Bank have negotiated a Proposed Interim
Order which, among other things, (1) provides Fidelity Bank with
adequate protection through replacement liens and superpriority
administrative expense claims; (2) modifies the automatic stay to
effectuate the terms of the Interim Order; and (3) reserves the
rights of an official committee of unsecured creditors, if one is
appointed, to obtain standing to challenge Fidelity Bank's claim or
its liens and security interests.

ARABELLA EXPLORATION: Needs to Use Platinum Partners' Cash
----------------------------------------------------------
Arabella Exploration, LLC, and its affiliates ask the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Texas for final
authorization to use cash collateral of Platinum Partners Credit
Opportunities Master Fund, LP.

The largest secured obligation of the Debtors consists of a secured
guaranty given in connection with a $16 million loan extended by
Platinum to Arabella Exploration, Inc., a Cayman Islands
corporation on September 2, 2014, as part of a $45 million credit
facility among Platinum and Arabella Exploration, Inc., a Cayman
Islands corporation.  The Platinum Guaranty is secured by
substantially all of the assets of the Debtors.  Platinum has filed
a proof of claim in the Chapter 11 Cases asserting a secured claim
of $20,061,589.04.

On the Arabella Exploration, LLC Petition Date, AEX's ownership of
the Oil & Gas Assets was subject to claims by Arabella Petroleum
Company, LLC, and the Chapter 11 trustee appointed in the Chapter
11 proceedings of APC pending in the Western District of Texas,
Case No. 15-70098.

On the AEX Petition Date, the value of the collateral securing
Platinum's Guaranty was both contingent and unliquidated.

By order dated May 5, 2017, the Court approved a mediation
settlement agreement by and among (i) the Debtors, (ii) APC and APC
Trustee, (iii) the official committee of unsecured creditors
appointed in the APC Bankruptcy Case, (iv) Platinum and the
receiver appointed to administer the Platinum estate in District
Court for the Eastern District of New York, Case No. 16-cv-6848,
and (v) AEI.

The Settlement Agreement became fully effective on July 10, 2017.

As a direct result of the Settlement Agreement the Debtors have
approximately $1.9 million in cash on hand, comprised of proceeds
from the (i) exercise of certain tag-along rights by the Debtors,
previously approved by the Court, and (ii) settlement of a
litigation claim by the APC Trustee, in each case, in which the
Debtors were entitled to share in pursuant to the terms of the
Settlement Agreement.

As adequate protection for the Debtors' use of cash collateral, the
Debtors seek authority to grant Platinum the following adequate
protection:

     -- a one-time payment of $700,000;

     -- post-petition replacement liens in all types and
        descriptions of collateral, excluding the Debtors' rights
        under Sections 544, 545, 546, 547, 548, 549 and 550 of the

        U.S. Bankruptcy Code, in which Platinum held valid and
        perfected security interests in, and liens on, as of the
        AEX Petition Date in the same rank, validity and priority
        as existed as of the AEX Petition Date to secure any claim
        for diminution in the value of the cash collateral
        resulting from the Debtors' use thereof; and

     -- an allowed administrative claim under 11 U.S.C. Sections
        503(b)(1), 507(a), and 507(b) in the amount of any
        diminution of value of the prepetition collateral
        resulting from Debtors' use of the cash collateral from
        and after the commencement of these Chapter 11 cases, with

        administrative claims being superior to all other
        administrative claims; provided, however, that the
        adequate protection claim and the replacement security
        interests and liens will be subordinate to the payment of
        the statutory fees of the U.S. Trustee pursuant to 28
        U.S.C. Section 1930(a), the expenses set forth in the
        budget, including post-petition professional fees and
        expenses approved by the Court in accordance with the
        requirements of the Bankruptcy Code, and fees payable to
        the Clerk of the Court.

The SEC Receiver appointed to administer the Platinum estate in
District Court for the Eastern District of New York, Case No.
16-cv-6848, has consented to the Debtors' use of the cash
collateral in exchange for the foregoing adequate protection.
Under the circumstances of this case, the Debtors believe the
foregoing adequate protection is sufficient to protect Platinum's
interest in the cash collateral.

The Debtors' use of cash collateral is necessary to preserve its
assets and business, to fund payment of normal and ordinary
post-petition operating expenses (including, without limitation,
the payment of Professional Fees) in accordance with the budget,
and to facilitate the sale of substantially all assets of Debtors
for the benefit of Debtors' creditors.

'Caa3'.  "The upgrade of Bill Barrett's ratings is driven by the
reduction of default risk supported by the company's large cash
balance and improved debt maturity profile," said Prateek Reddy,
Moody's lead analyst.  "The company's credit metrics are likely to
soften in 2017 because of the roll off of higher priced hedges, but
the metrics should strengthen along with production growth in
2018."

Moody's Investors Service affirmed BioScrip, Inc.'s 'Caa2'
Corporate Family Rating.  BioScrip's Caa2 CFR reflects the
company's very high leverage and weak liquidity, as reported by the
TCR on Aug. 3, 2017.

In July 2017, S&P Global Ratings affirmed its 'CCC' corporate
credit rating on BioScrip Inc. and removed the rating from
CreditWatch, where it was placed with negative implications on Dec.
16, 2016.  The outlook is positive.  "The rating affirmation
reflects our view that, although BioScrip addressed its upcoming
maturities by refinancing its senior secured credit facilities and
improved its liquidity position, the company's credit measures will
remain weak in 2017 with debt leverage of about 14x (including our
treatment of preferred stock as debt) and funds from operations
(FFO) to debt in the low single digits.  We expect the company to
use about $15 million - $20 million of cash in 2017, inclusive of
cash charges associated with restructuring following the recently
announced United Healthcare contract termination."


BOWLING GREEN: Dec. 11 PCO Hearing for Preferred Care

A. All license numbers or other regulatory identification numbers;
B. All DBAs or trade names under which the Debtor operates;

BREVARD COLLEGE: Fitch Affirms BB- Rating on $7.56MM Revenue Bonds
------------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed the 'BB-' rating on the approximately
$7.56 million series 2007 North Carolina Capital Facilities Finance
Agency educational facilities revenue refunding bonds, issued on
behalf of Brevard College Corporation.

The Rating Outlook is Stable.

SECURITY
The bonds are a general obligation of the college, payable from all
legally available funds.

KEY RATING DRIVERS

BALANCED FINANCIAL OPERATIONS: The rating reflects improved balance
sheet metrics and seven consecutive years of positive or near
break-even GAAP operating margins for this small liberal arts
college.

NET TUITION REVENUE DEPENDENCE: Net tuition revenue has grown
slowly, even with enrollment volatility, but remains pressured by
scholarship discounts. The college's small size and limited balance
sheet make it vulnerable to demand and enrollment shifts.

IMPROVED BUT LIMITED BALANCE SHEET: Brevard's fiscal 2017 balance
sheet ratios, as calculated by Fitch, improved due to receipt of a
cash bequest and positive market returns. However, they remain slim
for the rating category and constrain the rating.

ABOVE AVERAGE DEBT BURDEN: The college's pro forma maximum annual
debt service (MADS) burden, including a $6.38 million USDA loan for
student housing, is high to moderately high, at 8.3% of fiscal 2017
revenues. For the last eight fiscal years, including 2017, MADS
coverage from operations has exceeded 1.2x.

RATING SENSITIVITIES

ENROLLMENT: Sustained enrollment declines at Brevard College,
combined with failure to grow net tuition revenue and sustain
positive operating margins, would result in a negative rating
action.

BALANCE SHEET: Low balance sheet ratios constrain Brevard's rating,
even after receipt of a sizable cash bequest in fiscal 2017.
Further strengthening of the colleges' operating reserves and
balance sheet ratios, in combination with strong debt service
coverage and positive GAAP margins, could support a positive rating
action over time.

Based in Brevard, N.C., Brevard College is a small, private, United
Methodist, liberal arts college in Brevard, North Carolina, United
States.


BROOKLYN NAVY YARD: S&P Raises Debt Rating to B+, Outlook Positive
------------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings raised its issue rating on Brooklyn Navy Yard
Cogeneration Partners L.P.'s (BNYCP) $307 million 1997 tax-exempt
industrial development term bonds due 2022 to 2036, to 'B+' from
'B-'. (These bonds are issued by the New York City Industrial
Development Agency and the entire issue is outstanding) to 'B+'.
S&P said, "We also raised our rating on BNCYP's $100 million
amortizing 1997 taxable senior secured bonds due 2020 ($38.7
million outstanding) to 'B+'. At the same time, we revised the
recovery rating to '3' from '4H', indicating our anticipation of
meaningful (50% to 70%; rounded estimate 55%) recovery of principal
in a payment default scenario. The outlook is positive."

The year 2016 was strong with solid performance while in 2017
management executed as expected on a major maintenance outage.
Under S&P's calculations, for example, the DSCR in 2016 came in
higher than forecast at 1.38x, with strong availability of more
than 98% and high electric generation of more than 2,000 GWh. Since
2016, BNYCP has worked through the aftereffects of 2012's
Superstorm Sandy, whose storm surge damaged the plant and forced it
to shut down temporarily. The storm caused the project to declare a
force majeure and fully draw on its letters of credit (LOC),
causing a liquidity constraint until they were fully repaid in
2015. As a result, 2016 performance was similar to 2014, when
coverage would have been 1.34x if it were not for the LOC
obligations.

S&P said, "The positive outlook reflects our view that operational
performance, major maintenance costs, fuel prices (especially our
basis assumptions), property taxes, and liquidity levels will
remain in line with expectations. We expect a minimum DSCR of 1.10x
in 2018, with coverage expected to trend upwards.

"We could raise the rating if the project maintains consistent
operating performance that results in a minimum DSCR in the upper
end of the 1.0x-1.2x range, and the creditworthiness of the sponsor
remains higher than that of BNYCP."

Based in Kew Gardens, New York, Brooklyn Navy Yard Cogeneration
Partners L.P. owns and operates a co-generation facility that
produces and supplies electricity and steam to clients in New York.



CAMBER ENERGY: Completes Coyle Field Workovers
----------------------------------------------
Camber Energy, Inc., provided an update on the process underway to
reestablish production from six Natural Gas/Natural Gas Liquid
(NGL) wells in the Coyle field, located in Lincoln and Payne
Counties, Oklahoma.  Camber is the operator of this field, and has
repaired or replaced the electric submersible pumps (ESPs),
replaced tubing strings, and acidized and descaled each well as
appropriate in an effort to reinstate the water, gas and NGL
production.  Currently, the Company is producing 2,550 barrels of
formation water, 25 barrels of oil and 2,300 thousand cubic feet
(MCF) of gas per day from 12 legacy wells.  The wellhead gas
production average is comprised of 65% NGL's and 35% residue gas.
The field-wide average British thermal unit (BTU) is 1,750.

Furthermore, Camber is evaluating the potential for additional
sustained production gains by use of specific well compression and
by installing ESPs in two free-flowing wells.  These two wells have
1,900 BTU gas, the highest in the field.  Production from the
twelve wells began almost fifteen years ago, have a minimal
depletion curve and an estimated remaining economic life span
exceeding 10 years.

In addition to the Coyle Field, Camber has varied working interests
in 54 producing Hunton wells in Lincoln County, Oklahoma.  The net
production to Camber's interests are 15 barrels of oil per day
(BOPD) of approximately 62 gravity oil and 2,100 MCF per day of NGL
rich gas.  As in the Coyle Field, the gas is comprised of 65% NGL's
and 35% residue gas.  Camber is contracted with midstream operator,
Kinder Morgan, to gather and process the gas on a percentage of
proceeds contract.  The field-wide gas has an average BTU content
of approximately 1,450.  Camber owns its proportionate share of the
critical salt water disposal, electrical, and infrastructure
required to effectuate the dewatering and depressurizing of the
residual hydrocarbon zones.  Camber continually evaluates the
potential for offset proved undeveloped reserve (PUD) development
of this long life field.  Camber also has a varied working interest
in 40 oil or gas wells in Glasscock County, Texas, operated by
Apache Oil and Gas.  These wells produce from the Cline, Wolfberry
and Fusselman reservoirs. Net production to Camber is currently 25
BOPD and 65 MCF of gas per-day.

"As we recently announced, Camber is pursing existing production
acquisitions (proved developing producing (PDP) + proved
undeveloped reserve (PUD)) which can add to our inventory of
producing wells and drillable offsets in areas like the Permian
Basin and other strategic locations," commented Richard N. Azar II,
Interim CEO of Camber, who continued, "We want to capitalize on
situations where we can leverage our expertise and experience in
the dewatering technology to accelerate value and expand
operations."

                    About Camber Energy, Inc.

Based in San Antonio, Texas, Camber Energy (NYSE American: CEI) is
a growth-oriented, independent oil and gas company engaged in the
development of crude oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids in
the Hunton formation in Central Oklahoma in addition to anticipated
project development in the San Andres formation in the Permian
Basin.  For more information, please visit the Company's website at
www.camber.energy.

Lucas Energy changed its name to Camber Energy, Inc., effective
Jan. 5, 2017, to  more accurately reflect the Company's strategic
shift from its Austin Chalk and Eagleford roots to an expanding
addition of shallow oil and gas reserves with longer-lived,
lower-risk production profiles.

Camber reported a net loss of $89.12 million on $5.30 million of
total net operating revenues for the year ended March 31, 2017,
compared to a net loss of $25.44 million on $968,146 of total net
operating revenues for the year ended March 31, 2016.  As of  Sept.
30, 2017, Camber Energy had $34.49 million in total assets, $53.96
million in total liabilities and a total stockholders' deficit of
$19.47 million.

GBH CPAs, PC -- http://www.gbhcpas.com/-- in Houston, Texas,
issued a "going concern" opinion on the consolidated financial
statements for the year ended March 31, 2017, citing that the
Company has incurred significant losses from operations and had a
working capital deficit at March 31, 2017.  These factors raise
substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a
going concern, the auditors said.


CAMPBELLTON-GRACEVILLE: Committee Taps Colaborate as Consultant

corporation established pursuant to the laws of the State of
Florida in 1961 and operates as a not-for-profit 25-bed critical

The Hon. Karen K. Specie presides over the case.  Berger Singerman
LLP represents the Debtor as counsel.

In its petition, the Debtor estimated $1 million to $10 million in
assets and $1 million to $10 million to $50 million in
liabilities.

The petition was signed by Marwill Glade of GlassRatner Advisory &
Capital Group, LLC, to Debtor's chief restructuring officer.

On June 8, 2017, the Office of the U.S. Trustee appointed an
official committee of unsecured creditors.  The committee hired
Broad and Cassel LLP as counsel, and Wayne Black and Associates,
Inc., as investigative assistant.

Judge Karen K. Specie in June 2017 entered an order finding that
the appointment of a patient care ombudsman for the Debtor is not
necessary.


CARDTRONICS INC: Moody's Lowers Corporate Family Rating to Ba3
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded Cardtronics, Inc.'s Corporate
Family Rating ("CFR") to Ba3 from Ba2 and Probability of Default
Rating ("PDR") to Ba3-PD from Ba2-PD. Moody's also downgraded its
ratings on the company's 5.50% $300 million senior unsecured notes
and 5.13% $250 million senior unsecured notes to B1 from Ba3 and
affirmed the SGL-2 Speculative Grade Liquidity rating. The rating
action was driven principally by Moody's concerns relating to
heightened competitive pressures and pricing declines in two key
markets that could exacerbate an already challenging operating
environment for Cardtronics as the company grapples with secular
headwinds and transitions its business following the loss of a
large customer relationship.

Moody's took the following rating actions:

Corporate Family Rating -- Downgraded to Ba3 from Ba2

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

$250m Senior Unsecured Notes due 2022 --Downgraded to B1 (LGD4)
from Ba3 (LGD4)

$300m Senior Unsecured Notes due 2025 -- Downgraded to B1 (LGD4)
from Ba3 (LGD4)

Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating -- Affirmed at SGL-2

Outlook is Stable

RATINGS RATIONALE

Cardtronics' Ba3 CFR is constrained by the company's elevated
leverage (pro forma for acquisitions) of just over 3x as of
September 30, 2017 as well as its exposure to long term secular
risks associated with potentially limited growth, and possible
contraction, in cash-based transactions. The CFR additionally
considers uncertainties relating to the company's ability to
maintain surcharge and interchange rates as well as manage
pressures on profitability arising from potential increases in
interest rates within its markets. However, the rating is supported
by Cardtronics' established position as the world's largest
independent operator of automated teller machines and relatively
predictable operating cash flow derived from transaction-based
revenues.

Moody's expects that Cardtronics' sales will decline by
approximately 10% in 2018 due to the recent loss of the company's
largest customer, incremental competitive pressure on Cardtronics'
surcharge revenues in the Australian market, and the risk of
reduced interchange rates negatively impacting the company's United
Kingdom operations.

Cardtronics' SGL-2 Speculative Grade Liquidity rating is supported
by an unrestricted cash balance of $61.5 million as of September
30, 2017 as well as Moody's expectation that the company will
generate free cash flow of nearly $100 million over the next 12
months with no meaningful debt maturing over this time frame.
Additionally, the company's liquidity is bolstered by approximately
$242 million of availability, based on existing debt covenants,
under Cardtronics' $400 million revolving credit facility due in
2021. Moody's expect Cardtronics to maintain good liquidity over
the coming 12 months while applying free cash flow predominantly
towards the further repayment of its credit facility.

The stable outlook reflects Moody's expectation that revenues and
profitability will decline in 2018 and stabilize in 2019. Moody's
expects Cardtronics to repay debt over the coming year, resulting
in a moderate increase in debt leverage to about 3.5x in 2018.

FACTORS THAT COULD LEAD TO AN UPGRADE

The rating could be upgraded if Cardtronics demonstrates consistent
growth in free cash flow driven by organic revenue expansion and is
able to reduce debt to EBITDA leverage below 2.5x (Moody's
adjusted).

FACTORS THAT COULD LEAD TO A DOWNGRADE

The rating could be downgraded if Cardtronics is not on track to
stabilize revenues in 2019 or total debt to EBITDA (Moody's
adjusted) increases above 4x on a sustained basis.

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

Cardtronics provides consumer financial services through its
network of ATMs and multi-function financial services kiosks.
Cardtronics' customers primarily include large and small retailers,
operators of facilities such as shopping malls and airports, and
financial institutions. Moody's expects Cardtronics to generate
over $1.3 billion in sales in 2018.

2018, at 2:00 p.m.

Jan. 3, 2018, is the last day for filing written acceptances or
rejections of the Plan.  It is also the last day for filing and
serving written objections to confirmation of the Plan.

                    About Carrington Farm
                Condominium Owners Association

Carrington Farms Condominium Owners' Association, a not for profit,
voluntary association organized under RSA 292, is responsible for
the management and operation of Carrington Farms.  It is managed by

CBSA FAMILY: Wants to Use Rental Revenue to Pay PBC
---------------------------------------------------
CBSA Family Partnership seeks permission from the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the Central District of California to use the rent
collected from its 10,000-square foot metal industrial building
located in Corona, California, during the pendency of the Chapter
11 case, or until otherwise ordered by the Court, to pay its
regular monthly obligations to Preferred Business Credit, Inc.

The Property generates cash in the form of rental income in the
amount of $5,381.25 per month from tenant Wholesale Distribution,
Inc.  In addition, the Tenant pays all utilities and property taxes
directly, pursuant to the triple net lease entered into with the
Debtor.  Because of the tenant's continuous payments of rent, the
Debtor should have no difficulty maintaining post-petition
obligations to PBC, according to CBSA.

The Debtor has to pay the monthly loan payments in the amount of
$5,381.25 to PBC under a forbearance agreement, and otherwise
permit the payments by the Tenant directly of the ordinary and
necessary expenses for the operation of the Property, including the
utilities and property taxes directly, pursuant to the triple net
lease entered into with the Debtor.  The Debtor says the Court
should allow the use of the Rental Revenue because PBC's interest
in the Debtor's funds is adequately protected by the Debtor's
continued operations and the related preservation of the Property.
PBC is adequately protected by the Debtor's use of the Rental
Revenue to maintain the Property, and continue making its regular
payments, thereby protecting the value of all of PBC's collateral.

The Debtor assures the Court that its ability to use the Rental
Revenue will give the Debtor the ability to maintain the Property,
and to continue making its regular monthly installments to PBC.
This not only preserves the value of the Property, but
simultaneously enhances the value.  Every dollar that is generated
from the Rental Revenue is being used to continue maintaining the
Property, not only to keep the status quo for the benefit of the
Creditors, including PBC, but also to enhance the value of the
Property for potential buyers.  By using the Rental Revenue to
maintain the Property, the Debtors are inherently protecting the
creditors, and no additional protections are necessary.

In the present case, the Debtor intends to use Rental Revenue to
operate and preserve the Property.  According to the Debtor, the
use of Rental Revenue is essential to continue the ordinary
maintenance and operations of the Property and to provide necessary
services to its Tenant.  The Debtor warns that without the use of
the Rental Revenue, the Debtor will be unable to maintain, repair,
and operate the Property and will be forced to cease operations of
the Property because the Debtor will be unable to make its monthly
mortgage payments to PBC.

By way of a financing motion filed on Nov. 9, 2017, the Debtor
seeks approval of the new financing from PBC to payoff Lone Oak
Fund, LLC.  Additionally, the Financing Motion seeks approval of
the discounted payoff and settlement agreement that the Debtor and
Lone Oak have entered into.  One of the conditions of the financing
arrangement with PBC is to have an order approving a cash
collateral stipulation between the Debtor and PBC entered
concurrently with the entry of the order approving the Financing
Motion.  The Debtor seeks to have the instant motion heard on Nov.
30, 2017, so that it is heard concurrently with the other motion.

Pursuant to an agreement between the Debtor and Lone Oak Fund, LLC,
Lone Oak has agreed to accept a discounted payoff amount in the sum
of $925,000 to fully and finally resolve its entire claim against
the Debtor in this Chapter 11 case.  PBC will loan the Debtor the
DPO Amount in exchange for which the Debtor will execute a
Reaffirmation and Forbearance Agreement and PBC will acquire the
first trust deed secured position of Lone Oak.  The Debtor will use
the loan proceeds from PBC to pay off Lone Oak at a discounted
amount, and also obtain a new Forbearance Agreement from PBC.  The
statutory predicates for the relief requested here are subsections
364(d), 364(e) of the Bankruptcy Code and Federal Rule of
Bankruptcy Procedure 9019.

Immediately upon filing the Financing Motion, counsel for the
Debtor and PBC entered into negotiations regarding a cash
collateral stipulation.  Through the parties' diligent work, Debtor
and PBC have successfully negotiated a stipulation that both
parties consent to.

All other ordinary costs necessary to maintain and preserve the
Property, including, without limitation, insurance, real estate
taxes, and tenant improvements, are paid directly by the Tenant.

CDR HRB HOLDINGS: S&P Lowers CCR to 'B-' & Debt Rating to 'CCC'
---------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings lowered its corporate credit rating on Stamford,
Conn.-based CDR HRB Holdings Inc. and subsidiary HRB to 'B-' from
'B'. The outlook is negative.

S&P said, "At the same time, we lowered our rating on HRB's $250
million 8.875% senior unsecured notes due in 2025 to 'CCC' from
'CCC+'. The recovery rating is '6', indicating our expectation for
negligible recovery (0%-10%; rounded estimate: 0%) in the event of
a default."

Gross debt outstanding as of Sept. 30, 2017, was $480.3 million.

The rating downgrade reflects HRB's continued tough operating
environment--including substantial competition from large
consumer-product rivals and new entrants, evolving retailer
strategies, and volatile input costs--that has resulted in poor
operating results and credit ratio deterioration. S&P said, "We
forecast adjusted leverage will remain in the low-9x area and
break-even free cash flow over the next year. Given the sizable
drop in profitability, we reassessed HRB's business risk to
vulnerable from weak."

The negative outlook reflects the potential for a lower rating over
the next 12 months if credit protection measures continue to weaken
due to a further deterioration in profitability.

S&P said, "We could lower the ratings if there is a further
escalation in competition, shelf-space losses, or input-cost
volatility, which could lead to an unsustainable capital structure
or an inability to return to consistent positive free cash flow
generation. This could result if we forecast that adjusted leverage
will increase to well over 10x on a sustained basis or if we
believe free cash flow will remain at or below break-even without
realistic prospects for material improvement.

"We could revise the outlook to stable if HRB stabilizes
profitability, reports multiple quarters of consistently positive
free cash flow, and improves adjusted leverage closer to 8x. For
this to occur, EBITDA would need to increase by about 15%."

CHG HEALTHCARE: S&P Rates $200MM First-Lien Term Loan 'B'
---------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings assigned its 'B' issue-level rating to health
care staffing company CHG Healthcare Services Inc.'s $200 million
incremental first-lien term loan. S&P said, "The company intends to
use the proceeds to repay a portion of second-lien debt. The
recovery rating is '3', indicating our expectations for meaningful
(50%-70%; rounded estimate: 50%) recovery in the event of payment
default. We revised the estimated recovery percentage to 50% from
60%, reflecting higher expected first-lien debt in a default
scenario. The company also intends to reprice the first-lien term
loan to L+275-300 from L+325."

"Our ratings on CHG reflect the company's weak business risk
profile, highlighted by the company's operating concentration in
the highly competitive health care staffing industry. The company's
business mix benefits from significant exposure to the locum tenens
business, which we view as having greater stability of demand and
supply than the allied health and travel nurse segment. The rating
also reflects the company's highly leveraged financial risk
profile, which incorporates our expectation that adjusted leverage
will remain above 5x for the next few years. The refinancing is a
leverage-neutral transaction, with leverage expected to remain
above 5x."

CHRISTOPHER RIDGEWAY: Can't Appeal Common Core Doctrine Ruling
--------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana
entered an order denying Appellant-Debtor Christopher Martin
Ridgeway's motion for leave to appeal. The Debtor's motion to
expedite is also dismissed as moot.

The Debtor sought leave to appeal a decision of the Bankruptcy
Court that struck his common core doctrine objections to Appellees
Stryker Corporation and Howmedica Osteonics Corporation's proofs of
claim for attorney fees and costs. In particular, Appellees proofs
of claim for attorney's fees and costs were submitted based on an
underlying judgment in federal court in the Western District of
Michigan.

This controversy originated in Michigan, where Appellees brought a
claim against Debtor--former employee of Appellees--in part, for
violation of a non-compete under the Michigan Uniform Trade Secrets
Act. Following jury trial, judgment was entered in favor of
Appellees and against the Debtor on March 9, 2016. Debtor appealed
the judgment, which was affirmed by the Sixth Circuit.  Shortly
thereafter, Debtor filed a voluntary petition for Chapter 11
Bankruptcy on March 23, 2016.

The Debtor's attempt to tie this issue to Federal Rule of
Bankruptcy Procedure 7016 is unconvincing. The issue is one of
discretion pertaining to what the Debtor will be allowed to present
during the pre-trial, evidentiary hearing set for Nov. 30, 2017.
Review of Debtor's request would require this Court to delve into
the factual Bankruptcy record, as well as the record in the
Michigan Case. The request by Debtor does not involve, as required,
"pure" or "abstract" issues of law "suitable for determination by
an appellate court without a trial record." Further, the Debtor has
failed to meet his burden of proving any exceptional circumstances
that would require this Court to take such an undertaking.

Additionally, hearing this discovery issue on interlocutory appeal
would do nothing to further the ultimate termination of this
litigation. In fact, appeal would materially delay the approaching
determinative evidentiary hearing.

COMPASS POWER: S&P Assigns Prelim BB- Rating on $700MM Term Loan B
------------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said it assigned its preliminary 'BB-' rating
and preliminary '2' recovery rating to Compass Power Generation
LLC's $700 million term loan B due 2024 and $60 million revolving
credit facility due 2022. The outlook is stable. The preliminary
'2' recovery rating reflects our expectation of substantial
(70%-90%; rounded estimate: 85%).

S&P will finalize the rating upon receipt and review of final
project documentation, which it anticipates will conform with
preliminary documents.

The 'BB-' rating reflects an effective contractual profile at the
Marcus Hook Energy Center as well as expected consistent capacity
revenues in Independent System Operator-New England (ISO-NE),
offset to a degree by considerable market risk surrounding power
prices in both the Pennsylvania-Jersey-Maryland (PJM)
Interconnection and ISO-NE markets. Although, in the near term,
market risk is significantly limited by the aforementioned
contracts, it increases in the latter years as Dighton and Milford
become fully exposed to the capacity markets, and, after 2030, as
Marcus Hook's capacity contract with LIPA rolls off.

S&P said, "The stable outlook reflects our expectation of DSCRs of
about 1.5x during the next few years. These metrics are driven by
an expectation of effective operations at each of the assets and
low forced outage rates.

"We could lower the rating if DSCRs drop below 1.3x consistently,
likely as a result of diminished power pricing or substantially
weaker availability. In addition, increased refinancing risk,
brought about by sweeping lower-than-anticipated amounts during the
contract and cleared capacity periods, could drop the rating by a
notch.

"While unlikely currently, we could raise the rating if the
project's minimum DSCR exceeds 1.6x; such an increase would likely
require a pronounced improvement in power pricing."

stockholder value by validating qualified resources (measured and
indicated) and reserves (probable and proven) of 3,250,000 gold
equivalent ounces by 2013, and commencing commercial mining and
processing operations by 2011, with annual production rates of
20,000 gold equivalent ounces.

CONCENTRA INC: S&P Affirms 'B+' CCR, Off Watch Negative
-------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings affirmed its 'B+' corporate credit rating on
occupational-based physical therapy services provider Concentra
Inc. and removed the rating from CreditWatch, where it was placed
with negative implications on Oct. 25, 2017. The outlook is
negative.

On Oct. 23, 2017, Addison, Texas-based Concentra Inc., a provider
of occupational-based physical therapy services, entered into a
definitive agreement to acquire U.S. HealthWorks, a subsidiary of
Dignity Health, for $753 million. The company will fund the
proposed transaction with a $555 million incremental first-lien
term loan B and a $240 million second-lien term loan.

S&P said, "In addition, we assigned a 'B+' issue-level rating and
'3' recovery rating to Concentra's proposed $555 million first-lien
add on. The '3' recovery rating indicates our expectation for
meaningful (50%-70%; rounded estimate: 55%) recovery in the event
of a payment default. We assigned our 'B-' issue-level rating to
the company's proposed $240 million second-lien term loan. Our
recovery rating on this debt is '6', indicating our expectation for
negligible (0%-10%; rounded estimate: 0%) recovery in the event of
a payment default.

"We also affirmed our 'B+' issue-level rating on the company's
senior secured debt and removed it from CreditWatch. The recovery
rating on this debt remains '3', reflecting our expectation for
meaningful (50%-70%; rounded estimate: 55%) recovery in the event
of default."

Concentra announced plans to acquire Dignity Health subsidiary U.S.
HealthWorks, a national provider of occupation-based therapy
services and urgent care services. The transaction, which expands
Concentra's primary business focus, will be funded with $555
million of incremental borrowings on the company's first-lien term
loan B and a new $240 million second-lien term loan.

The negative outlook reflects credit metrics which are quite weak
for the rating, risks to S&P's base case of deleveraging, and the
potential for a downgrade over the next 18 months if it believes
the company's commitment to generally maintaining adjusted debt
leverage below 5x has weakened.

Concentra is a provider of occupational and consumer healthcare
services, including workers' compensation injury care, physical
exams and drug testing for employers, and wellness and preventative
care in approximately 416 locations across the US, including
clinics at employer locations. The company also provides outpatient
services to veterans in community based outpatient clinics.
Concentra recognized revenue of about $1 billion in the twelve
months ended June 30, 2017. Concentra is jointly owned by Select
Medical Corporation and affiliates of Welsh, Carson, Anderson &
Stowe.


CORBETT-FRAME INC: Wants to Continue Using Cash Through Dec. 31
---------------------------------------------------------------
Corbett-Frame, Inc., asks for authorization from the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Kentucky to use cash
collateral on an extended basis through Dec. 31, 2017.

The Debtor proposes to provide the cash collateral creditors with
the same adequate protection as provided in previous orders
including replacement liens and payment.  Without continued use of
cash collateral, the Debtor says it will be irreparably harmed as
cash is essential to continue business operations and pay
employees.

           http://bankrupt.com/misc/kyeb17-51607-60.pdf

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on Nov. 27, 2017, the
Court authorized the Debtor to use cash collateral from Nov. 1
through Nov. 30, only in accordance with the Court's interim
order.

CYTORI THERAPEUTICS: Creates New Series B Conv. Preferred Stock
---------------------------------------------------------------
Cytori Therapeutics, Inc., filed a Certificate of Designation of
Preferences, Rights and Limitations of Series B Convertible
Preferred Stock with the Delaware Secretary of State creating a new
series of its authorized preferred stock, par value $0.001 per
share, designated as the "Series B Convertible Preferred Stock".
The number of shares initially constituting the Series B Preferred
Stock was set at 10,000 shares.

Each share of Series B Preferred Stock will be convertible, at
Cytori's option at any time on or after the first anniversary of
the closing of the Rights Offering or at the option of the holder
at any time, into the number of shares of Cytori's common stock,
par value $0.001 per share determined by dividing the $1,000 stated
value per share of the Series B Preferred Stock by a conversion
price of $0.3333 per share.  In addition, the conversion price per
share is subject to adjustment for stock dividends, distributions,
subdivisions, combinations or reclassifications.  Subject to
limited exceptions, a holder of the Series B Preferred Stock will
not have the right to convert any portion of the Series B Preferred
Stock to the extent that, after giving effect to the conversion,
the holder, together with its affiliates, would beneficially own in
excess of 9.99% of the number of shares of Cytori's Common Stock
outstanding immediately after giving effect to its conversion.

In the event Cytori effects certain mergers, consolidations, sales
of substantially all of its assets, tender or exchange offers,
reclassifications or share exchanges in which its Common Stock is
effectively converted into or exchanged for other securities, cash
or property, Cytori consummates a business combination in which
another person acquires 50% of the outstanding shares of its Common
Stock, or any person or group becomes the beneficial owner of 50%
of the aggregate ordinary voting power represented by Cytori's
issued and outstanding Common Stock, then, upon any subsequent
conversion of the Series B Preferred Stock, the holders of the
Series B Preferred Stock will have the right to receive any shares
of the acquiring corporation or other consideration it would have
been entitled to receive if it had been a holder of the number of
shares of Common Stock then issuable upon conversion in full of the
Series B Preferred Stock.

Holders of Series B Preferred Stock will be entitled to receive
dividends (on an as-if-converted-to-common-stock basis) in the same
form as dividends actually paid on shares of the Common Stock when,
as and if such dividends are paid on shares of Common Stock. Except
as otherwise provided in the Certificate of Designation or as
otherwise required by law, the Series B Preferred Stock has no
voting rights.  Upon Cytori's liquidation, dissolution or
winding-up, whether voluntary or involuntary, holders of Series B
Preferred Stock will be entitled to receive out of Cytori's assets,
whether capital or surplus, an amount equal to the $1,000 stated
value per share for each share of Series B Preferred Stock before
any distribution or payment shall be made to the holders of any
junior securities.  Cytori is not obligated to redeem or repurchase
any shares of Series B Preferred Stock.  Shares of Series B
Preferred Stock are not otherwise entitled to any redemption
rights, or mandatory sinking fund or analogous fund provisions.

DECK CHASSIS: Moody's Affirms B1 CFR; Outlook Stable
----------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service affirmed the B1 Corporate Family Rating
("CFR") and B1-PD Probability of Default Rating ("PDR") of Deck
Chassis Acquisition Inc. following the purchase of TRAC Intermodal
LLC's domestic chassis fleet by Deck Chassis Acquisition's
subsidiary, Direct ChassisLink, Inc. ("DCLI"). Deck Chassis
Acquisition plans to fund the purchase with an incremental draw
from a $900 million asset-based revolving credit facility due 2022,
a new $325 million senior secured term loan due 2023 and a
significant amount of new equity. Moody's assigned a B3 rating to
the new senior secured term loan and affirmed the B3 rating of Deck
Chassis Acquisition's existing $325 million senior secured notes
due 2023. The rating outlook is stable.

RATINGS RATIONALE

The affirmation of the B1 CFR takes into account the attractive
position of the domestic chassis fleet business as the sole
provider of chassis equipment pools for the transportation of 53'
containers that are used by North American freight railroads and
other large transportation and logistics companies. The efficiency
of the equipment pool model, the capital that is required to build
a sizeable fleet and entrenched customer relationships establish
barriers to enter this market and mitigate the risk of equipment
ownership by DCLI's customers. The domestic chassis fleet is a good
operational fit with DCLI's core competency of cost-effective
management of equipment pools with well-maintained chassis. In
addition, the planned migration of the domestic chassis fleet to
DCLI's REZ-1 asset management software will enable DCLI's customers
to use a single IT-platform for reservations, tracking and billing
of both chassis and containers.

Unlike DCLI's existing marine chassis fleet, maintenance and repair
of domestic chassis equipment is not carried out at high-cost port
locations, supporting EBITDA margins that are well in excess of
Deck Chassis Acquisition's current EBITDA margins of slightly more
than 30%, calculated on a Moody's adjusted basis.

Moody's estimates that debt/EBITDA will increase to approximately
5.5 times as a result of the acquisition, calculated on a pro forma
basis for 2017, excluding any anticipated cost savings. Although
this represents a significant increase from debt/EBITDA of 4.3
times as of September 2017, Moody's anticipates that Deck Chassis
Acquisition is able to decrease financial leverage to current
levels within two years following the transaction, provided that
free cash flow is deployed towards debt reduction.

Moody's considers Deck Chassis Acquisition's liquidity to be very
good, taking into account its ability to generate considerable free
cash flow, the absence of material debt maturities until 2022 and
the $300 million that is expected to be available under the new
$900 million asset-based revolving credit facility upon closing of
the financing transactions.

The new $325 million senior secured term loan due 2023 is rated B3,
in line with the B3 rating of the existing senior secured notes due
2023 and two notches below the B1 CFR. This reflects the higher
ranking in Moody's Loss Given Default analysis of the $900 million
asset-based revolving credit facility that has a first-priority
claim on DCLI's assets compared to the second-priority security
interest of the term loan and the notes.

The stable outlook reflects Moody's expectation of moderate
increases in chassis usage in both the domestic and marine segments
of the containerized transportation market, which, along with an
increase in chassis rental rates, is expected to result in
mid-single digit revenue growth in 2018.

The ratings could be upgraded if Deck Chassis Acquisition is able
to increase EBITDA margins towards 40% following the integration of
the domestic chassis fleet, while lowering debt/EBITDA to less than
4 times and increasing EBIT/interest expense to at least 2.5 times.
Adherence to a conservative financial policy with respect to
shareholder distributions and acquisitions would also be an
important consideration for a rating upgrade.

The ratings could be downgraded if Moody's expects that EBITDA
margins decrease to well below 35%, debt/EBITDA approaches 5.5
times, EBIT/interest expense decreases to 1.5 times, or if free
cash flow falls meaningfully below $75 million.

DECK CHASSIS: S&P Affirms 'BB-' CCR, Off CreditWatch Negative
-------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings affirmed its 'BB-' corporate credit rating on
cargo chassis lessor Deck Chassis Acquisition Inc. and removed the
rating from CreditWatch, where S&P placed it with negative
implications on Oct. 26, 2017.

S&P said, "At the same time, we affirmed our 'BB-' issue-level
rating on the company's $325 million senior secured notes and
removed the rating from CreditWatch, where we placed it with
negative implications on Oct. 26, 2017. The '3' recovery rating
remains unchanged, indicating our expectation for meaningful
(50%-70%; rounded estimate: 65%) recovery in the event of a
default.

"Additionally, we assigned our 'BB-' issue-level rating and '3'
recovery rating to the company's proposed $325 million senior
secured term loan. The '3' recovery rating indicates our
expectation for meaningful (50%-70%; rounded estimate: 65%)
recovery in the event of a default.

"The affirmation reflects our belief that Deck Chassis' credit
metrics will stabilize as the company integrates TRAC Intermodal's
domestic chassis fleet after weakening immediately following the
acquisition. Following the transaction, DCLI will gain a presence
outside of the marine chassis market in which it currently
operates. The company's fleet will increase to approximately
218,000 chassis on a pro forma basis (including owned and managed
assets) from about 136,000 currently. In addition, DCLI will add 66
additional operating locations at major ports and intermodal hubs
throughout the U.S. to its existing network.

"The stable outlook on Deck Chassis incorporates our expectation
that DCLI's operating performance will improve after it completes
its acquisition of TRAC Intermodal's domestic chassis business. We
also believe that the company's operating performance will improve
on stronger demand and pricing in general. Therefore, we anticipate
that the company's credit metrics will weaken somewhat at the time
of the acquisition before improving thereafter, including an EBIT
interest coverage metric in the low-1x area and an FFO-to-debt
ratio of around 10%.

"We do not expect to lower our ratings on DCLI during the next
year. However, we could lower our ratings on the company if
economic weakness, reduced utilization rates, earnings, and cash
flow, or the failure to successfully integrate TRAC's domestic
chassis business causes its EBIT interest coverage metric to
decline below 1x and its FFO-to-debt ratio to decline below 9% for
a sustained period.

"An upgrade is unlikely over the next year because we believe that
DCLI's ownership by a financial sponsor precludes the possibility
for sustained improvement in its credit metrics. However, we could
consider raising our ratings on the company if its EBIT interest
coverage metric increases above 1.7x and its FFO-to-debt ratio
reaches 13%. This could occur because of better-than-expected
earnings from stronger demand and/or pricing. We would also need to
believe that the company's financial sponsor is committed to
supporting its metrics at these improved levels."

DEXTERA SURGICAL: Falls Short of Nasdaq's Bid Price Requirement
---------------------------------------------------------------
Dextera Surgical Inc. has received from the staff of The Nasdaq
Stock Market LLC a letter notifying Dextera that the bid price of
its common stock had closed at less than $1 over the previous 30
consecutive trading days and, as a result, did not comply with
Listing Rule 5550(a)(2).  Dextera previously had been notified that
it was not in compliance with the Rule and had been provided with
180 days to regain compliance with the Rule, which 180 days ended
on Nov. 28, 2017.

The letter further stated that Dextera is not eligible for a second
180-day period to regain compliance with the Rule due to its
failure to comply with the Nasdaq minimum stockholders' equity
requirement of $5 million for initial listing on the Nasdaq Capital
Market, which serves as an additional basis for delisting Dextera's
common stock from Nasdaq.

Dextera has an appeal scheduled with the Nasdaq Hearings Panel
regarding its failure to comply with the Nasdaq minimum
stockholders' equity requirement, and the Nasdaq letter states that
the Nasdaq Hearings Panel will consider Dextera's failure to comply
with the Rule in making its decision.

FIGUEROA TOWER: Cal. App. Affirms Judgment in Favor of ABM
----------------------------------------------------------
The Court of Appeals of California affirms the bankruptcy court's
decision ruling in favor of ABM Security Services, Inc. in the
appeals case ABM SECURITY SERVICES, INC., Plaintiff and Respondent,
v. FIGUEROA TOWER-II, LP, et al., Defendants and Appellants, No.
B267979 (Cal. App.).

ABM provided security services at Figueroa Tower, a downtown Los
Angeles office building co-owned by three limited partnerships. The
limited partnerships engaged a property management company, Milbank
Holdings, Inc., dba Milbank Real Estate Services, Inc., to handle
building operations and maintenance. Milbank missed some payments
to ABM in late 2010 and 2011. The two companies discussed ways
Milbank could reduce security costs. Facing a potential foreclosure
action from a secured lender, the limited partnerships sought
protection under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code. The bankruptcy
filings identified ABM's unsecured claim for $243,627.39. After the
bankruptcy case was dismissed without discharge, ABM sued the
limited partnerships for payment and obtained a judgment in its
favor.

Defendants and appellants Figueroa Tower-II, LP and FT-II GP, LLC
appeal from the judgment. The primary contentions on appeal are the
judgment was based on factual findings that varied materially from
ABM's complaint, and the judgment is not supported by substantial
evidence.

Fig II first contends the judgment included factual findings that
exceeded the allegations of the complaint. Specifically, Fig II
argues that absent any evidence of a direct relationship between
itself and ABM, there is no basis to hold Fig II liable for ABM's
unpaid invoices.

Fig II's argument misrepresents the allegations of ABM's complaint,
which do not allege a direct relationship between ABM and the
limited partnerships. It also ignores Milbank's role as Fig II's
authorized agent. The complaint alleges that the defendant limited
partnerships and LLCs "became indebted to" ABM on the various
theories identified. Judge Lyons made factual findings that the
defendants became indebted based on the actions of their agent,
Milbank. Her findings are consistent with the complaint allegations
and supported by substantial evidence.

With substantial evidence that Milbank was Fig II's agent, and
contracting for security services for Figueroa Tower was within the
scope of its agency, there was no need for ABM to establish a
direct relationship with Fig II in order to hold the principal
liable for the authorized acts of its agent.

Fig II contends the evidence relied upon by Judge Lyons to find an
account stated was insufficient to show that Fig II and ABM had
agreed upon a balance due. The Court disagrees.

Judge Lyons gave the bankruptcy statements about ABM's claim great
weight and viewed the testimony of Simon Barlava -- the manager of
FT-II GP, LLC, and the general partner of Figueroa Tower-II, LP --
with distrust, pointing out that the limited partnerships did not
offer any testimony to explain why the amount was incorrect. Fig
II's statements in the bankruptcy case were signed under penalty of
perjury. The ballot analysis for the reorganization plan further
supports the conclusion that Fig II acknowledged a debt for
$243,627.39, while reserving the right to object to ABM's claim for
a higher amount. The fact that the amount of the account stated is
established by Fig II's document, rather than an accounting sent by
ABM to Fig II, is irrelevant. The bankruptcy schedules are
substantial evidence of Fig II's acknowledgment of the existence
and amount of the debt owed to ABM.

With sufficient evidence to support the judgment under an account
stated theory of recovery, the Court's analysis is complete. The
Court holds in the alternative that there is also substantial
evidence to support the judgment on ABM's common count for work,
labor and services performed, often referred to as quantum meruit.

Fig II argues ABM cannot prevail on its quantum meruit claim
because it introduced no evidence that Fig II requested services
from ABM, and there was no evidence to establish the reasonable
value of those services. The Court holds that Fig II cannot escape
liability by the mere fact that it sought ABM's services through an
agent, Milbank. In addition, there was sufficient evidence to
support the court's determination that ABM's charges were
reasonable.

FLOOR & DECOR: Moody's Hikes CFR and Sr. Sec. Term Loan to B1
-------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service upgraded the ratings of Floor and Decor
Outlets of America, Inc., including its Corporate Family Rating
(CFR) to B1 from B2, Probability of Default Rating (PDR) to B1-PD
from B2-PD and its senior secured term loan B to B1 from B2. In
addition, Moody's assigned a Speculative Grade Liquidity rating of
SGL-3. The ratings outlook is stable.

"The upgrade to B1 reflects Floor & Decor's material debt reduction
to date and consistent positive operating trends that has resulted
in a significant and sustained improvement in credit metrics"
stated Bill Fahy, Moody's Senior Credit Officer.  Floor & Decor's
leverage on a debt/EBITDA basis improved to 3.7x for the LTM period
ended September 2017 from a high of 5.7x at the end of fiscal 2016.
Earlier this year Floor & Decor used the proceeds from its initial
public offering to repay approximately $192 million of outstanding
debt. Moreover, operating trends have remained strong and driven by
both positive transactions and average ticket size which Moody's
expect to continue as the company benefits from a moderate US
housing market recovery, more specifically home remodeling.

Upgrades:

Issuer: Floor and Decor Outlets of America, Inc.

-- Probability of Default Rating, Upgraded to B1-PD from B2-PD

-- Corporate Family Rating, Upgraded to B1 from B2

-- Senior Secured Bank Credit Facility, Upgraded to B1(LGD3) from

    B2(LGD4)

Assignments:

Issuer: Floor and Decor Outlets of America, Inc.

-- Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating, Assigned SGL-3

Outlook Actions:

Issuer: Floor and Decor Outlets of America, Inc.

-- Outlook, Changed To Stable From Positive

RATING RATIONALE

Floor & Decor benefits from its positive operating trends driven by
both positive traffic and average ticket as well as its competitive
position within the hard surface flooring sector, management
experience, direct sourcing model and adequate liquidity. The
breadth and depth of its product offerings and value focused
pricing should position it well in the current economic
environment. However, Floor & Decor is constrained by its modest
scale, aggressive store growth strategy versus historic levels,
limited geographic diversity and cyclical nature of its core target
market -- home remodeling. The company's majority ownership by
private equity firms Ares Management, L.P. and Freeman Spogli & Co
is also a credit concern.

The stable outlook reflects Moody's expectation that Floor & Decor
successfully executes its store growth strategy while maintaining
positive operating trends at its existing store base. The outlook
does acknowledge that store expansion will increase above historic
levels but also assumes that growth will be at a measured pace that
would allow management time to adjust growth in the event the home
remodeling sector were to moderate.

Factors that could result in an upgrade would require the
successful execution of its store growth strategy that results in a
steady and meaningful increase in Floor & Decors scale and
geographic diversification while maintaining positive operating
trends at both existing and new locations. An upgrade would also
require a stronger liquidity profile driven by sustained and
material positive free cash flow, as well as greater diversity of
ownership versus its current concentration with private equity.
Quantitatively, ratings could be upgraded if leverage on a debt to
EBITDA basis approaching 3.5 times and EBIT to interest coverage of
above 3.5 times on a sustained basis.

Ratings could be downgraded in the event operating performance fell
short of expectations or financial policy were to become more
aggressive in regards to debt financed transactions resulting in
debt to EBITDA sustained above 4.5 times or EBIT to interest of
below 2.5 times. Ratings could also be downgraded if liquidity were
to deteriorate.

Floor & Decor is a leading retailer of hard surface flooring in the
United States with 82 stores. The company is a wholly owned in
direct subsidiary of Floor & Decor Holdings, Inc. which in turn is
majority owned by private equity firms Ares Management, L.P. and
Freeman Spogli & Co. Annual revenues are about $1.3 billion.

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

under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code (Bankr. D. Hawaii Case No.
17-00915) on September 7, 2017.  Judge Robert J. Faris presides
over the case.

The Debtor owns real property located at 42 Henohea, Kahului,
Hawaii.  At the time of the filing, the Debtor disclosed that it
had estimated assets of $1,000,001 to $10,000,000 and liabilities

represented by Bruce R. Lewis, Esq.  On August 3, 2016, at the
behest of the Office of the U.S. Trustee, Bankruptcy Judge Robert
J. Faris dismissed the case, saying the Debtor is not a "business

relief.


GENERAC POWER: S&P Affirms BB- Corp Credit Rating, Outlook Stable
-----------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings affirmed its 'BB-' corporate credit rating on
Waukesha, Wis.-based Generac Power Systems Inc.  S&P said, "We also
affirmed our 'BB-' issue-level rating on the company's senior
secured debt. In addition, we revised the recovery rating on the
debt to '3' from '4', indicating our expectation of meaningful
(50%-70%; rounded estimate: 50%) recovery in the event of a
default. The outlook is stable."

"The affirmation of our ratings on Generac, including the 'BB-'
corporate credit rating, reflects our view of the company's strong
market share in niche markets and the discretionary nature of
standby generators spending, along with the company's financial
position, with debt leverage we are forecasting to approach 3x by
the end of 2018 and below 3x in 2019.

"The stable rating outlook reflects our expectation that Generac's
debt leverage will continue progressing toward the lower end of
3x-4x range through 2018. In our view, additional market
penetration supported by recent geographic expansion and modest
margin improvements should translate into strengthening credit
measures through next year.

"We could lower the rating if conditions changed such that we
believed the company's leverage would be sustained above 4x. This
could happen as a result of an EBITDA margin contraction of 400 bps
or more, spurred by spiking integration or input costs.
Alternatively, a recessionary environment leading to sales
declining by more than 15% could also have a similar effect.

"We could raise our rating on Generac if its credit measures
strengthened such that we expected adjusted debt leverage to remain
below 3x, particularly if the company continued to grow and
diversify its operations. This could follow from consistent market
share growth in Europe, especially if the company can sustain or
improve current margins."

Generac Power Systems, Inc., headquartered in Wisconsin, is a
leading designer and manufacturer of a wide range of standby
electric generators and, to a lesser degree, other engine powered
products globally. The company has over 3,000 employees and is
expected by Moody's to have over $1.5 billion in revenues for 2017.


GENERAL NUTRITION: Moody's Cuts CFR to B2; Outlook Negative
-----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded the Corporate Family Rating of
General Nutrition Centers, Inc. ("GNC"), from B1 to B2. The ratings
on formerly proposed senior secured notes are withdrawn. The Senior
Secured Bank Credit Facility was downgraded to B1 from Ba3. The
outlook is changed from stable to negative. GNC's Speculative Grade
Liquidity rating was affirmed at an SGL-2.

Downgrades:

Issuer: General Nutrition Centers, Inc.

-- Probability of Default Rating, Downgraded to B2-PD from B1-PD

-- Corporate Family Rating, Downgraded to B2 from B1

-- Senior Secured Bank Credit Facility, Downgraded to B1(LGD3)
    from Ba3(LGD3)

Outlook Actions:

Issuer: General Nutrition Centers, Inc.

-- Outlook, Changed To Negative From Stable

Affirmations:

Issuer: General Nutrition Centers, Inc.

-- Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating, Affirmed SGL-2

"Although GNC's proposed refinancing will address its maturing
revolver in September 2018, the proposed term loan will increase
debt maturing in 2020 as it continues to work to stabilize its
operating income as it executes its business realignment. The
proposed structure is also expected to increase its interest cost
significantly" says Moody's Vice President, Christina Boni. Moody's
anticipates that GNC will generate an estimated $120 million in
free cash flow which will be primarily deployed towards debt
reduction annually.

RATINGS RATIONALE

GNC's B2 Corporate Family Rating is supported by the company's
well-known brand name in its target markets along with Moody's
favorable view of the vitamin, mineral, and nutritional supplement
("VMS") category due to favorable demographic trends in the United
States. GNC has been realigning its pricing and promotional cadence
to improve its customer traffic. Credit metrics have been under
pressure but are expected to improve while the company enacts its
turnaround. Although Moody's expects GNC's operating performance
will stabilize as the company focuses on improving its market
positioning, the company will have over $500 million in debt
maturities in 2020 to address.

Other key credit concerns include GNC's sizable concentration in
sports nutrition, which is a much more limited product segment with
a relatively smaller target market than the VMS product category.
Also considered is the potential risk arising from adverse
publicity and product liability claims with regard to certain
products sold by GNC, particularly diet products and herbs, two
faddish product categories that are more exposed to such risks and
earnings volatility.

The negative outlook incorporates Moody's view that the expected
high interest cost and mandatory debt amortization will reduce its
financial flexibility as its maturities in 2020 remain significant.
Although operating performance should stabilize albeit at a lower
profitability level as a result of its initiatives to improve its
market positioning, significant deleveraging is likely also
required to extend its maturities.

GNC's ratings could be upgraded over time if the company extends
its maturities and demonstrates consistent stable to improving same
store sales while maintaining operating margins at or above the low
teens. An upgrade would require that GNC continue to adhere to a
financial policy that would support debt/EBITDA sustained below
5.0x.

Rating could be downgraded if the company were to see a material
decline in sales trends or operating margins, either through a
weakening competitive profile or material product-related risks.
Ratings could also be lowered if financial policies were to become
aggressive, if liquidity were to materially erode or a refinancing
to extend it capital structure is not implemented well in advance
of upcoming maturities. Quantitatively, a ratings downgrade could
occur if it appears that debt/EBITDA will be sustained above 6.0x
or EBIT/Interest drops below 1.0x.

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

General Nutrition Centers, Inc., headquartered in Pittsburgh, PA,
is a diversified, multi-channel business model which generates
revenue from product sales through company-owned retail stores,
domestic and international franchise activities, third-party
contract manufacturing, e-commerce and corporate partnerships. As
of September 30, 2017, GNC had more than 9,000 locations, of which
more than 6,800 retail locations are in the United States
(including 2,414 Rite Aid franchise store-within-a-store locations)
and franchise operations in approximately 50 countries.



GIGAMON INC: S&P Assigns 'B-' CCR, Outlook Stable
-------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings assigned its 'B-' corporate credit rating to
Santa Clara, Calif.–based Gigamon Inc. The outlook is stable.

S&P said, "At the same time, we assigned our 'B' issue-level rating
and '2' recovery rating to the company's $450 million first-lien
credit facilities, which consist of a $400 million first-lien term
loan and a $50 million revolver (undrawn at close). The '2'
recovery rating indicates our expectation for substantial (70%-90%;
rounded estimate: 70%) recovery for lenders in the event of payment
default. We also assigned our 'CCC' issue-level rating and '6'
recovery rating to the company's $150 second-lien term loan. The
'6' recovery ratings indicates our expectation for negligible
recovery (0%-10%; rounded estimate: 5%) prospects for lenders in
the event of a payment default."

The 'B-' corporate credit rating reflects the company's small scale
and narrow focus in the nascent network packet broking (NPB) market
segment with competition from larger and more diversified players
including Cisco Systems Inc., Keysight Technologies, and Broadcom
Ltd. (through acquisition of Brocade Communications Systems). The
rating also reflects significant revenue deceleration and sales
execution issues over the past year, some uncertainty around
long-term growth prospects, and transition risks as it is taken
private. Finally, the rating reflects S&P-adjusted leverage,
excluding planned cost synergies, around 10x at transaction close,
and our expectation for free cash flow to debt near the 3% area.

S&P said, "The stable outlook reflects our expectation that Gigamon
will resume revenue growth through the transition to a private
company and achieve modest cost synergies. We expect this will lead
to leverage in the mid-7x area and positive free operating cash
flow over the next 12 months.

"We could lower the rating if Gigamon is unable return to revenue
growth and achieve outlined synergies resulting in sustained
negative free cash flow and a capital structure that we deem
unsustainable.

"We could upgrade Gigamon if the company is able to establish a
track record of consistent revenue growth and effectively implement
outlined cost synergies such that leverage decreases below 7x, in
conjunction with free cash flow to debt above 5%, on a sustained
basis."

Gigamon Inc. designs, develops and sells products and services that
together provide customers visibility and control of network
traffic.  The Company serves global enterprises, governments and
service providers that seek to maintain and improve the security,
reliability and performance of their network infrastructure.


GOODWILL INDUSTRIES: Exclusive Plan Filing Period Moved to March 9
------------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Bruce T. Beesley of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Nevada has extended the exclusive period for Goodwill
Industries of Southern Nevada, Inc., to file a plan of
reorganization to March 9, 2018, as well as the period to secure
acceptance of such plan to May 8, 2018.

The Troubled Company Reporter has previously reported that the
Debtor sought for a 90-day extension of the periods during which to
file and to solicit acceptances of a plan of reorganization.

Goodwill Industries related that, over the last few years, and
under the leadership of prior officers, the Debtor was engaged in a
substantial and aggressive expansion of its presence in Southern
Nevada, which resulted in the Debtor entering into a variety of
leases that have proven to be too expensive, unprofitable, and
ultimately unnecessary in order for the Debtor to effectively and
efficiently operate.

As a result, the Debtor contended that a significant part of its
restructuring will involve reducing the number of locations through
the rejection of the associated leases, and renegotiating other
leases to more economical rental rates.

As of the Petition Date, the Debtor was a party to approximately 20
leases for retail thrift stores, distribution centers and/or
offices, and approximately 26 attended donation centers (the
"ADCs"). Since the Petition Date, the Debtor has moved quickly and
made significant efforts to rightsize its operations but the Debtor
claims that there is much work still remains to be done.

While the Court have already approved the rejection of several
leases and two lease amendments, the Debtor claimed that it also
continues its work to renegotiate its remaining unexpired leases
with numerous counterparties. As such, the Debtor has been working
as fast as possible to address its many unexpired leases, and that
process will continue with all deliberate speed.

In addition to the Debtor's remaining work with respect to the
unexpired leases, another significant aspect remaining unresolved
in this Chapter 11 Case is how the principal sum of not less than
$21,365,000 owed to the Indenture Trustee will be restructured as
part of any plan of reorganization. Although this debt is secured
by three valuable pieces of the Debtor's real property that are
currently operated as thrift stores, as well as the Debtor's
substantial gross receipts, the Debtor will require some relief
from the current terms of the bond indenture and related loan
agreements as part of its chapter 11 plan, which remains subject to
negotiation.

Although the Debtor fully believed this matter is surmountable, the
Debtor maintained that such negotiations and projections in support
of a plan will take time, especially considering how the Debtor has
changed post-petition with the aggressive realignment of its
operations.

HARD ROCK EXPLORATION: May Use Cash Collateral Until Dec. 15
------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Frank W. Volk of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of West Virginia has entered a Third Interim
Order authorizing Hard Rock Exploration, Inc., and its affiliates

ICAHN ENTERPRISES: S&P Rates Proposed Senior Unsecured Notes 'BB+'
------------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said that it assigned its 'BB+' issue-level
ratings and '3 (65%)' recovery rating to Icahn Enterprises L.P.'s
proposed $1.3 billion senior unsecured notes. The '3 (65%)'
recovery rating denotes expectation for a meaningful recovery in
the event of a payment default. The notes will be issued under
three tranches due in 2022, 2024, and 2025 in amounts to be
determined by market conditions. The amounts due in 2022 and 2024
will be add-ons to existing notes. IEP will use the proceeds from
the proposed notes to refinance its 2019 maturity.

S&P said, "We view this offering favorably because it will push out
the firm's maturity schedule, partially alleviating a risk we
previously cited. IEP's next maturity will now be $1.7 billion in
notes due in 2020. IEP's cash and investment segment equity (which
we consider to be a secondary source of liquidity) has grown since
year-end 2016, also supporting the company's liquidity position. As
of Sept. 30, 2017, cash and investment segment equity covered
outstanding debt by 61% and covered the firm's next maturity (2020
notes) by 170%. We would expect these ratios to improve further
given the company's sale of the remainder of American Railcar
Leasing after the end of the third quarter for $522 million (book
gain of $154 million)."

S&P said, "As of Sept. 30, 2017, IEP's loan-to-value ratio (LTV)
was about 43%, and we estimate it showed modest further improvement
after the quarter given the continued rally in CVR Energy's share
price (and also potentially from proceeds from ARL being allocated
to cash, which we net against debt). This is a solid improvement
from the firm's 49% LTV at the end of 2016. However, we still
believe this level is consistent with a 'BB+' issuer credit rating,
especially given the sensitivity of the company's underlying
holdings to a market or economic downturn and the company's
opportunistic nature. IEP is still unable to issue incremental
notes because of its incurrence covenant.

"Additionally, we continue to view the two-notch rating
differential between IEP and Pershing Square Holdings Ltd.
(BBB/Negative/--) as well justified." While Pershing Square also
runs a concentrated portfolio and has had performance problems over
the past several years, the fund is currently net cash and has a
much more liquid portfolio (Pershing Square largely owns minority
stakes in equities) than IEP.

In the company's third quarter 2017 10-Q filing, IEP noted that it
had recently received a subpoena from the US Attorney's office for
the Southern District of New York seeking information pertaining to
IEP's or Carl Icahn's activities related to the Renewable Fuel
Standards and Carl Icahn's role as an advisor to the President.
Currently, the US Attorney's office has not made any claims or
allegations against IEP or Carl Icahn. S&P said, "At this stage, we
believe it is too early to assess how these developments may evolve
and whether there will be any meaningful impact on the rating.
However, we will continue to watch further developments closely and
assess their impact, if any."

JOHN Q. HAMMONS: Wants Access to Cash Collateral Through Dec. 31
----------------------------------------------------------------
John Q. Hammons Fall 2006, LLC, and its affiliates seek permission
from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Kansas to use
cash collateral through Dec. 31, 2018.

Under the currently effect cash collateral court order, the Debtors
have authority to continue using cash collateral through Dec. 31,
2017.  The Debtors have entered into agreements with secured
lenders Great Southern Bank, Hawthorn Bank, Bank of Blue Valley,
Fifth Third Bank, First National Bank of Omaha, and Morton
Community Bank to extend the maturity date of approximately 10
loans made by these secured lenders on the same terms and
conditions as existed pre-petition, including providing the same
adequate protection the Debtors have been providing under the cash
collateral court orders.

From and after the entry of the cash collateral orders, the Debtors
have continued to make the monthly principal and interest payments
to their mortgagee secured lenders that are set forth in the
current budgets and will continue to make those payments under the
2018 budgets.

The Debtors have continued to provide adequate protection to their
secured lenders under the terms set forth in the cash collateral
orders.  The budget for the trust contains line items for the
payment of fees for the Debtors' counsel through Dec. 31, 2018.
The trust receives money from at least two sources not subject to a
security interest:

     (a) money the trust receives each month from Des Plaines
Development Corporation on account of Des Plaines's ownership
interest in a Harrah's casino; and

     (b) from the sale of unencumbered undeveloped land owned by
the Trust throughout the country.

The Des Plaines money aggregates to in excess of $8 million per
year.  The unencumbered land sales generated more than $14 million
in proceeds in 2017 and the Debtors anticipate that the
unencumbered land sale proceeds will exceed $27 million by the end
of 2018.

Accordingly, the Debtors submit that no Court approval in addition
to the approval of the budgets is required to pay counsel's fees
because the money used to pay counsel's fees is unencumbered and
therefore not cash collateral under Sections 363(a) of the U.S.
Bankruptcy Code.

The Debtors reserve the right to ask the Court at a later date for
permission to pay counsel's fees out of cash collateral, should
that become necessary, pursuant to Section 363(c)(2) of the
Bankruptcy Code.

JOLIVETTE HAULING: Proposes Online Auction for Personal Assets
--------------------------------------------------------------
Jolivette Hauling, Inc. asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Western District of Wisconsin to authorize the sale of various
items of personal property it owns which were used in connection
with its business activities through a public online auction at
http://www.hansenandyoung.com/

Objections to the proposed sale are due Dec. 20, 2017.

The Debtor wishes to dispose of all of its personal property.

A copy of the Master Equipment Listing attached to the Motion is
available for free at:

    http://bankrupt.com/misc/Jolivette_Hauling_96_Sales.pdf

The Debtor believes Co-Op Credit Union ("CCU") has a properly
perfected first position secured interest in its personal property.
While there may be differing opinions as to the value of the
Property, the Debtor says the consensus is the value of the
Property exceeds the amount of indebtedness owed to CCU.  Any
excess funds above and beyond the valid and perfected interests of
CCU in proceeds of the sale, if any, will be held in trust until it
is determined how best to distribute those funds to any remaining
claimants of the estate.

The Debtor is seeking court approval to employ Hansen and Young as
an auctioneer in the case, and sell the Property through a public
online auction.

The Debtor proposes to sell the Property free and clear of all
liens, claims and encumbrances.  The parties wishing to bid on the
Property or requiring further information about the auction should
contact Hansen & Young Auctioneers.

The Debtor, working in conjunction with CCU, believes the sale via
a public online auction is the best way to market and liquidate the
Property.

KENT LINDEMUTH: Government Loses Bid to Strike Expert Testimony
---------------------------------------------------------------
District Judge Daniel D. Crabtree denied the government's motion to
strike and motion in limine in the case captioned UNITED STATES OF
AMERICA, Plaintiff, v. KENT E. LINDEMUTH (01), Defendant, Case No.
16-40047-01-DDC (D. Kan.).

Mr. Lindemuth has ongoing bankruptcy proceedings and his criminal
charges stem from them. While in these bankruptcy proceedings, his
assets are controlled by the bankruptcy Trustee. According to Mr.
Lindemuth, the Trustee will not release funds from his estate to
help his efforts to marshal his defense. Initially, Mr. Lindemuth
believed the Trustee would release some funds so that he could
retain an expert in bankruptcy law to serve as a putative expert
witness at trial. With that expectation, Mr. Lindemuth located an
expert in bankruptcy law who reportedly was prepared to testify.
But, when the deadline to provide notice of expert witnesses
arrived on Oct. 24, 2017, the Trustee still had not released funds
needed to retain the expert. So, Mr. Lindemuth filed a Designation
of Expert Witness and Offer of Proof with a Disclosure of Expert
Testimony. But, this disclosure did not name the expected expert
because Mr. Lindemuth did not yet have the funds to retain him. In
his Disclosure of Expert Testimony, Mr. Lindemuth disclosed the
topics, generally, that the expert witness was expected to address
in his testimony.

Ultimately, the Trustee did not release funds for the expert
witness so Mr. Lindemuth could not retain him. Later, Neil Sader--a
bankruptcy attorney who previously had represented Mr. Lindemuth in
his bankruptcy proceedings--offered to testify as an expert witness
on a pro bono basis. Once Mr. Sader agreed to do so, Mr. Lindemuth
filed a Supplemental Designation of Expert Witness, and it named
Mr. Sader as the expert witness who would testify about the topics
disclosed in the Disclosure of Expert Testimony. Mr. Lindemuth
filed this supplement 17 days after the Oct. 24 deadline for
serving notice of expert witnesses had passed.

Between the two motions and its presentation at oral argument, the
government aims three arguments at Mr. Lindemuth's putative expert
and the disclosure Mr. Lindemuth has made about him. Those
arguments are: (1) Mr. Lindemuth's notice disclosing his expert was
inadequate and untimely; (2) Mr. Lindemuth's expert has a
disqualifying conflict of interest; and (3) Mr. Lindemuth's expert
seeks to provide improper expert legal testimony. For these
reasons, the government asks to strike Mr. Lindemuth's Designation
of Expert Witness and Offer of Proof and exclude any expert legal
testimony.

The government asserts that the court should strike Mr. Lindemuth's
Designation of Expert Witness and Offer of Proof because it
provides inadequate notice of Mr. Lindemuth's expert. The
government also asserts that the court should exclude the expert's
testimony because Mr. Lindemuth's Supplemental Designation of
Expert Witness was untimely.  The court holds that Mr. Lindemuth's
Disclosure of Expert Testimony is inadequate and untimely. But,
striking that Designation of Expert Witness and Offer of Proof or
excluding the putative expert's testimony altogether is too heavy
of a sanction.

Next, the government argues that the court should exclude the
expert's testimony because he has a disqualifying conflict of
interest. But, the government fails to provide any legal basis for
this argument. The government never asserts that Mr. Sader received
confidential information from the government while they shared a
confidential relationship with one another. Indeed, it asserts just
the opposite--that Mr. Sader and Mr. Lindemuth shared a
confidential attorney-client relationship in which Mr. Lindemuth
may have shared confidential information with Mr. Sader. Even if
this is so, it does not warrant disqualification. Mr. Sader's
attorney-client relationship with Mr. Lindemuth does not disqualify
him from serving as an expert witness here.

Last, the government argues that expert legal testimony, generally,
is improper and so the court must exclude Mr. Sader from giving any
expert testimony. The court denies the government's motion to
exclude all expert legal testimony nominated by Mr. Lindemuth's
expert disclosure. But, the court expects Mr. Lindemuth's expert to
stay within the boundaries established by Specht and applied in
Boardwalk Apartments. The court trusts that the preliminary views
expressed in this order will help the parties develop the expert
process.

LEARFIELD COMMUNICATIONS: S&P Affirms 'B' CCR on Term Loan Add-On
-----------------------------------------------------------------
U.S. sports media and marketing company Learfield Communications
LLC plans to issue an incremental term loan of $364 million due
2023 and upsize its revolver capacity to $125 million partly to
finance a merger with IMG College, a subsidiary of WME
Entertainment Parent LLC d/b/a Endeavor. Learfield plans to use the
proceeds to pay a cash distribution to its owners, fund the
purchase of the remaining minority interest in ANC, and fund cash
balances.

S&P Global Ratings affirmed its 'B' corporate credit rating on
Plano, Texas-based Learfield Communications LLC and removed it from
CreditWatch, where S&P placed it with negative implications on Oct.
10, 2017. The rating outlook is stable.

S&P said, "At the same time, we affirmed our 'B+' issue-level
rating on Learfield's first-lien credit facility, consisting of the
$837 million first-lien term loan due 2023 (which includes the $364
million add-on) and the upsized $125 million revolving credit
facility due 2021. The recovery rating on the first-lien credit
facility is '2', reflecting our expectation for substantial
(70%-90%; rounded estimate: 70%) recovery for lenders in the event
of a payment default. We also affirmed our 'CCC+' issue level
rating on the $100 million second-lien term loan due 2024. The
recovery rating on this debt is '6', indicating our expectation for
negligible (0% to 10%; rounded estimate: 0%) recovery for lenders
in the event of a payment default. Upon transaction closing, IMG
College's assets will become part of the collateral package pledged
to the credit facility lenders, and the combined Learfield-IMG
College entity will be owned by Atairos Group, Silver Lake
Partners, Endeavor, and other minority stakeholders.

"We affirmed the 'B' corporate credit rating despite additional
debt partly to finance the proposed merger because Learfield is
also issuing a significant amount of equity to finance the merger.
As a result, we expect the merger will be a leverage-neutral event,
and we believe total lease- and guarantee-adjusted debt to EBITDA
will improve to the 6x-area in the fiscal year ending June 2019,
which is a little more than one year following the assumed mid-2018
closing of the merger. This level of forecasted leverage is below
our 7x downgrade threshold on the company. We expect that Learfield
will continue to expand its product offerings to universities where
it currently holds multimedia rights (MMR) contracts, while also
strengthening its network of universities by selling ancillary
products and services to universities where Learfield is not the
MMR contract holder. Our highly leveraged financial risk assessment
on the company also reflects financial sponsor ownership by Atairos
and Silver Lake, and the tendency of financial sponsor-controlled
companies to increase leverage over time to fund distributions to
shareholders. We believe that EBITDA coverage of cash interest will
be good at around 3x through 2019, partly offsetting anticipated
high leverage.

"The stable outlook reflects our expectation that the combined
Learfield-IMG College entity will reduce leverage over time
primarily through EBITDA growth, and that the company will sustain
lease- and guarantee-adjusted debt to EBITDA below our 7x downgrade
threshold, incorporating potential distributions to shareholders
and acquisitions.

"We could consider lowering the ratings on Learfield if there is a
decline in EBITDA that drives coverage of cash interest toward the
mid-1x area and results in an inability to generate positive
discretionary cash flow, or if the company pursues a more
aggressive acquisition strategy that sustains adjusted debt to
EBITDA above 7x. We could also consider lowering the ratings if we
believe there are risks surrounding Learfield's ability to fund its
guaranteed minimum payments to universities.

"We could consider higher ratings if we believe the financial
policy of the company's owners would result in adjusted debt to
EBITDA remaining below 5x. We could also raise ratings if we
favorably reassess Learfield's business risks, which could result
from the company's realization of revenue and cost synergies
resulting in higher EBITDA margin."

Based in Jefferson City, Missouri, Learfield Communications
operates radio networks and manages athletic multimedia rights for
various collegiate properties in the United States. It offers news
and agriculture programming through its radio networks. The company
also provides news in the areas of agriculture, politics and
government, legislature, education, sports, weather, business and

LIFE PARTNERS: Court Dismisses Trust's Clawback Suit v ASF, et al.
------------------------------------------------------------------
District Judge John McBryde dismissed with prejudice all claims
asserted by the plaintiffs against the defendants in the adversary
proceeding captioned LIFE PARTNERS CREDITORS' TRUST AND ALAN M.
JACOBS, AS TRUSTEE FOR LIFE PARTNERS CREDITORS' TRUST, Plaintiffs,
v. AMERICAN SAFE RETIREMENTS, LLC, ET AL., Defendants, Adversary
No. 15-04110-rfn (N.D. Tex.)

Plaintiffs alleged in the introduction of their second amended
complaint that the "lawsuit seeks to recover commissions paid to
the Defendants by [Life Partners]" and "damages suffered by
investors who assigned their claims to the Creditors Trust." The
claims asserted in the Complaint are characterized as either
"Estate Claims," which are for "(1) fraudulent transfers under the
Texas Uniform Fraudulent Transfer Act and 11 U.S.C. section 548;
(2) breach of contract; and (3) preference claims under 11 U.S.C.
section 547 and various disallowance claims under 11 U.S.C.
sections 502 and 510," or "Investor Claims," which are for "(1)
negligent misrepresentation; (2) breach of the Texas Securities Act
based upon the sale of unregistered securities by unlicensed
brokers; (3) for rescission pursuant to the TSA; and (4) for breach
of fiduciary duty." The assignments of those claims to plaintiffs
were alleged to have been accomplished by, or pursuant to, the
bankruptcy plan that was confirmed.

After having considered the defendants' multiple motions to dismiss
the complaint, the allegations of the complaint, plaintiffs'
omnibus response to the motions, replies of defendants, the report
and recommendation regarding such motions issued by the bankruptcy
judge on Oct. 18, 2017, objections to the report and
recommendation, plaintiffs' response to defendants' objections, and
pertinent legal authorities, the court has concluded that all
claims asserted by plaintiffs in the complaint should be
dismissed.

The court has adopted recommendations of the bankruptcy judge that
the allegations of certain counts fail to comply with the pleading
standards of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, with the result
that the inadequately pleaded claims are to be dismissed. As to the
other claims, the court has concluded from the court's independent
evaluation of the merits of the grounds of the motions to dismiss
that all claims asserted by plaintiffs in the complaint are
insufficiently pleaded, that some are rendered moot because of
insufficient pleading of predicate claims, and that all claims
should be dismissed.

The court is not accepting the recommendations made from time to
time by the bankruptcy judge that plaintiffs be permitted to
replead as to certain issues or as to certain defendants. The
conclusions of this court that the allegations of the complaint are
deficient cannot possibly come as a surprise to plaintiffs.

Undoubtedly, plaintiffs know that they have done the best they can
do. They have not sought leave to file an amended pleading at any
time since defendants started filing their motions to dismiss; nor
have they ever suggested that they would be able to overcome their
pleading deficiencies if given an opportunity to do so. Defendants
have exhausted enough resources in response to the inadequately
pleaded complaints of plaintiffs, without being called upon to go
another round. Therefore, the court is not permitting plaintiffs to
replead.

The bankruptcy case is in re: LIFE PARTNERS HOLDINGS, INC., Chapter
11, Debtor, Case No. 15-40289-RFN11 (Bankr. N.D. Tex.).

The Hon. Benjamin A. Kahn of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Middle District of North Carolina has entered a sixth interim order
authorizing Morehead Memorial Hospital to use the cash collateral
of Berkadia Commercial Mortgage LLC and First-Citizens Bank & Trust
for the week ending Nov. 17, 2017, through and including Dec. 15.

A further hearing to consider the continued use of cash collateral
will be held on Dec. 12 at 9:30 a.m.

The Debtor may use the Berkadia and First-Citizens cash collateral
to pay only the ordinary and reasonable expenses of operating its
business that are necessary to avoid immediate and irreparable
harm.

During the Interim Cash Collateral Period, the terms of the
Berkadia Secured Financing Agreements and the First-Citizens
Secured Financing Agreements and Assignments will continue in full
force and effect except as may be modified by operation of law or
pursuant to the terms of the Sixth Interim Order.

The Lenders are granted adequate protection pursuant to Sections
361 and 363(e) of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code:

     (a) Interest, Fees and Costs.  The Debtor will pay Berkadia
         and First-Citizens all interest, fees, and charges
         including, without limitation, all obligations,
         expenses, and other charges accruing under the Berkadia
         Secured Financing Agreements or the First-Citizens
         Secured Financing Agreements and Assignments,
         respectively, regardless of whether amounts appear on
         the Budget, subject to a full reservation of rights by
         the Debtor and the Official Committee of Unsecured
         Creditors to seek to recharacterize of payments as
         payments of principal to the extent that it is
         determined that the claims of Berkadia and First-
         Citizens are not oversecured pursuant to Section 506(b)
         of the Bankruptcy Code.  All payments of interest will
         be calculated at the applicable interest rate under the
         Berkadia Secured Financing Agreements or the First-
         Citizens Secured Financing Agreements and Assignments,
         as applicable, in effect as of the Petition Date;

     (b) Replacement Collateral and Replacement Liens for HUD and

     (c) Automatic Perfection of Berkadia Replacement Liens.  The
         Berkadia Replacement Liens granted under this Sixth

         or subordination.  Notwithstanding the automatic
         perfection of the Berkadia Replacement Liens granted
         pursuant to the Sixth Interim Order, Berkadia is
         authorized, but not required, to file financing
         statements and other similar instruments in any

         authorized and directed to execute and deliver all
         instruments and documents prepared by Berkadia or HUD

         reasonably required or necessary to facilitate any
         filings or recordings elected to be made by Berkadia or
         HUD;

         interests, and other encumbrances, existing as of the
         Petition Date, or which attach to the Berkadia
         Replacement Collateral after the Petition Date, that are
         senior, valid, perfected, enforceable, and unavoidable,
         that are granted with Berkadia's or HUD's consent, or
         that are otherwise senior to the pre-petition liens in
         favor of Berkadia or HUD. The Berkadia Replacement Liens
         will be valid and enforceable against any trustee
         appointed in the Chapter 11 case, or in any subsequent
         proceeding affecting the Debtor, including any
         conversion of the Debtor's Chapter 11 case to a case
         under Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code;

     (e) Replacement Collateral and Replacement Liens for First-
         Citizens.  The Debtor grants, assigns, and pledges
         to First-Citizens valid, perfected, and enforceable
         liens and security interests in all of the rents
         received from the Thompson Street Building and Dayspring
         Building on and after the Petition Date and all of the
         Debtor's right, title, and interest in, to, and under
         the First-Citizens Pre-Petition Collateral, to the
         extent same existed on the Petition Date and the
         proceeds, products, offspring, rents, and profits of all
         of the foregoing, all as may otherwise be described in
         the First-Citizens Secured Financing Agreements and
         Assignments;

     (f) Automatic Perfection of First-Citizens Replacement
         Liens. The First-Citizens Replacement Liens granted
         under the Sixth Interim Order will be valid, perfected,
         and enforceable against the First-Citizens Replacement
         Collateral as of the Petition Date without further
         filing or recording of any document or instrument or the
         taking of any further actions, and will not be subject
         to dispute, avoidance, or subordination.
         Notwithstanding the automatic perfection of the
         Replacement Liens, First-Citizens is authorized, but not
         required, to file financing statements and other similar
         instruments in any jurisdiction, and to take any other
         action it deems necessary or appropriate in order to
         validate, evidence, or perfect such First-Citizens
         Replacement Liens.  The Debtor is authorized and
         directed to execute and deliver all instruments and
         documents prepared by First-Citizens and to pay all
         reasonable fees and expenses that are reasonably
         required or necessary to facilitate any filings or
         recordings elected to be made by First-Citizens;

     (g) Priority of First-Citizens Replacement Liens.  The
         First-Citizens Replacement Liens granted will be subject
         and subordinate in priority to any liens, security
         interests, and other encumbrances, existing as of the
         Petition Date, or which attach to the First-Citizens
         Replacement Collateral after the Petition Date, that are
         senior, valid, perfected, enforceable, and unavoidable,
         that are granted with First-Citizens' consent, or that
         are otherwise senior to the pre-petition liens in favor
         of First-Citizens.  The First-Citizens Replacement Liens
         will be valid and enforceable against any trustee
         appointed in the Chapter 11 case, or in any subsequent
         proceeding affecting the Debtor, including any
         conversion of the Debtor's Chapter 11 case to a case
         under Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code;

     (h) Taxes.  The Debtor will agree to pay all post-petition
         federal, state, and county taxes (other than real
         property taxes) as and when due, regardless of whether
         taxes appear on the Budget and any payments in excess of
         amounts budgeted will not be considered in calculating
         whether Debtor has exceeded the budget and caused a
         default or termination event under this Sixth Interim
         Order;

     (i) Super-priority Administrative Expense Claim for
         Berkadia.  Subject and subordinate only to the carve-
         out, the Berkadia Note Obligations, to the extent that
         the stay under Section 362 of the Bankruptcy Code or the
         use, sale, or lease of the Berkadia Prepetition
         Collateral results in a decrease in Berkadia's interest
         in the Berkadia Prepetition Collateral, are granted and
         entitled to status as an administrative expense claim
         pursuant to Section 507(b) of the Bankruptcy Code, with

         351, 503(b), 506(c), 507(a), and 1114 of the Bankruptcy
         Code; and

     (j) Super-priority Administrative Expense Claim for First-
         Citizens.  Subject and subordinate only to the Carve-
         Out, the First-Citizens Note Obligations, to the extent
         that the stay under Section 362 of the Bankruptcy Code,
         or the use, sale, or lease of the First-Citizens

         of the Bankruptcy Code, with priority over all other

MTN INFRASTRUCTURE: S&P Affirms 'B' Senior Secured Debt Rating
--------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings affirmed its 'B' issue-level rating, with a '3'
recovery rating, on the senior secured debt of MTN Infrastructure
TopCo Inc. (the parent of Waynesboro, Va.-based fiber
infrastructure and service provider Lumos Networks Corp.) following
the company's placement of incremental secured debt to fund a
portion of its acquisition of a majority stake in South
Carolina-based fiber infrastructure provider Spirit Communications
(Spirit). The '3' recovery rating indicates S&P's expectation of
meaningful (50% to 70%; rounded estimate: 50%) recovery in the
event of payment default.

MTN Infrastructure completed a $960 million term loan B due 2024,
which was upsized from the company's originally planned $485
million first-lien term loan. The upsize includes a $475 million
delayed-draw term loan that cannot be drawn prior to the company's
completion of its acquisition of Spirit. The acquisition is
expected to close by the end of the first quarter of 2018. MTN
Infrastructure also increased the size of its revolving credit
facility to $125 million as part of the transaction.

S&P said, "Our 'B' corporate credit rating and stable outlook on
MTN Infrastructure are unchanged. The corporate credit rating is
based on our view of the combined business, which reflects its
relatively small scale, limited market share, and competition from
larger players. The rating also reflects our expectation that
adjusted leverage, which is pro forma for the acquisitions of Lumos
and Spirit, will be about 6x in 2017 and remain elevated longer
term because of its private equity ownership and our view that the
company will likely pursue debt-financed acquisitions or
shareholder distributions."

RECOVERY ANALYSIS

Key analytical factors

S&P said, "Our simulated default scenario contemplates speculative
capital spending combined with economic pressure that leads to
customer churn. These factors could contribute to significantly
lower revenues, profitability, and cash flow levels for the
company. This decline in operating results would result in a
payment default to the point that the company's liquidity and cash
flow would be insufficient to cover cash interest expenses,
mandatory debt amortization, and maintenance-level capital
expenditure requirements.

"At default, our recovery analysis assumes a capital structure
consisting of a $125 million revolving credit facility maturing in
2022 (85% drawn) and a $960 million senior secured term loan due
2024. Estimated debt claims also include about six months of
accrued but unpaid interest outstanding at the point of default.

"Other default assumptions include LIBOR rising to 2.5% and the
spread on the revolver rising to 5% as covenant amendments are
obtained. We assess recovery prospects on the basis of a distressed
gross recovery value of approximately $567 million. This is based
on an emergence EBITDA of about $103 million and an EBITDA multiple
of 5.5x. The $103 million emergence EBITDA is our estimate of MTN
Infrastructure's hypothetical default-level EBITDA."

Simulated default assumptions

-- Simulated year of default: 2020
-- EBITDA at emergence: $103 million
-- Implied enterprise valuation (EV) multiple: 5.5x
-- Gross enterprise value (EV): $567 million

Simplified waterfall

-- Net EV (after 5% administrative costs): $539 million
-- Valuation split in % (obligors/nonobligors): 73/27
-- Estimated net EV available for senior secured debt (including
unpledged value): $539 million
-- Estimated senior secured debt claims: $1.08 billion
-- Senior secured debt recovery rating: '3' (50%)
-- Senior secured debt issue rating: 'B'

NAVITAS MIDSTREAM: Moody's Assigns B3 Corporate Family Rating
-------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned first-time ratings to Navitas
Midstream Midland Basin, LLC, including a B3 Corporate Family
Rating (CFR), a B3-PD Probability of Default Rating (PDR), and a B3
senior secured term loan rating. The rating outlook is positive.

Net proceeds from the term loan offering will be used to repay
existing bank debt and to pre-fund growth capital expenditures.

"Navitas has very high financial leverage and will face elevated
project execution and volume ramp up risks through 2019 as it
builds out additional gathering and processing capacity to support
growing volumes from a diversified group of E&P customers in the
Midland Basin," said Sajjad Alam, Moody's Senior Analyst. "While
Navitas has very little EBITDA, Moody's expect earnings to increase
which will improve leverage and coverage ratios relatively quickly
through 2019 following the commissioning of two 200 mmcf/day
cryogenic natural gas processing plants in January 2018 and the
second quarter 2019."

Ratings Assigned:

Issuer: Navitas Midstream Midland Basin, LLC

-- Corporate Family Rating, assigned B3

-- Probability of Default Rating, assigned B3-PD

-- $350 million Senior Secured Term Loan B, assigned B3 (LGD4)

Outlook, Positive

RATINGS RATIONALE

Navitas' B3 CFR reflects its very high initial financial leverage,
and the company's heavy reliance on rapid gathering and processing
volume growth through 2019 to improve its leverage profile. While
the company's assets are located in the core of the Midland Basin,
robust ongoing drilling will be necessary for Navitas to realize
its anticipated cash flow growth and leverage reduction targets.
The rating is also restrained by Navitas' small asset and earnings
base, limited operating history, and significant projected
outspending through 2019. Key factors supporting the B3 rating
include large acreage dedication from a diversified group of active
E&P companies, long-term fee based contracts from customers that
have the commitment and wherewithal to drill even in a low oil
price environment, a senior management team with deep midstream
experience, significant upfront equity contribution from its
private equity sponsor Warburg Pincus which could provide
additional equity support, and structural features in the loan
agreement such as cash flow sweeps and a $11 million debt service
reserve account offering credit enhancements.

The $350 million senior secured term loan facility is rated B3
under the Moody's Loss Given Default Methodology. Although the $50
million revolver (unrated and maturing five years from the closing
of the transaction) has a super priority claim to Navitas' assets,
the term loan is rated the same as the CFR given the small size of
the revolver relative to the term loan. Moody's has reviewed
preliminary draft legal documentation for the proposed term loan
and the assigned ratings assume that there will be no material
variation from the drafts reviewed.

Navitas will have adequate liquidity through 2018 after closing of
the proposed term loan transaction. At closing, Navitas will have
roughly $227 million of cash and an undrawn $50 million revolving
credit facility, which will be put in place concurrently with the
term loan. The company will also have an $11 million debt service
reserve account back stopped by a separate letter of credit.
Moody's expects Navitas to fund its 2018 debt service obligations
and capital expenditures using cash on hand and cash from
operations. Under the revolver agreement, Navitas has to maintain a
minimum total debt/total capitalization ratio of 50% through March
31, 2019, and thereafter, the company has to maintain only a debt
service coverage ratio of 1.1x and a maximum super senior leverage
ratio of 1.5x. Moody's expects the company to be comfortably in
compliance with its covenants through the end of 2018.

The positive outlook reflects Moody's view that healthy ongoing
drilling activity around Navitas' operating footprint will enable
the company to boost cash flow and reduce leverage within a
relatively short period of time.

An upgrade could be considered if Navitas can accomplish its
projected volume and cash flow growth and reduce financial leverage
below 6x while maintaining adequate liquidity.

A downgrade is most likely if volume growth lags expectations
keeping the debt/EBITDA ratio above 8x at the end of 2018 or if the
company's liquidity position weakens considerably.

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

Navitas Midstream Midland Basin, LLC, is a Texas incorporated
privately owned natural gas gathering and processing company with
primary operations in the Midland, Martin, Howard, Glasscock and
Upton Counties of the Midland Basin. Navitas was formed in May 2014
and is 85% owned by Warburg Pincus.



NEENAH ENTERPRISES: S&P Raises CCR to 'B' on Improving End Markets
------------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings raised its corporate credit rating on U.S.-based
Neenah Enterprises Inc. to 'B' from 'B-'. The outlook is stable.

S&P said, "At the same time, we assigned our 'B+' issue-level
rating to the company's proposed $120 million term loan B due in
2022. We also assigned our '2' recovery rating, which indicates our
expectation for substantial recovery (70%-90%; rounded estimate:
70%) in the event of a payment default."

The upgrade reflects the company's reduced leverage as a result of
improved operating performance from continued recovery in the
heavy-truck, construction, and agriculture segments served by
Neenah's industrial segment. Neenah reduced leverage from the
mid-5x area as of June 30, 2016, to the low-4x area as of Sept. 30,
2017. S&P said, "We expect the company will maintain leverage
between 4x and 5x over the next 12 months given our forecast for
modest revenue growth. In addition, we believe the proposed
refinancing of its term loan moderately enhances the company's
liquidity via ABL borrowing repayment and our belief that it will
maintain at least 15% cushion under the proposed maximum leverage
covenant relative to our forecast."

S&P said, "The stable outlook reflects our belief that the company
will maintain adjusted debt to EBITDA between 4x and 5x over the
next 12 months. This is supported by our expectation for modest
revenue growth due to continued recovery in the end markets served
by Neenah's industrial segment, partially offset by potential
weakness in the company's municipal segment.

"We could lower our rating on Neenah by one notch if the company's
operating performance declined due to lower demand for the
company's products such that adjusted debt to EBITDA grew to more
than 5x on a sustained basis. We could also lower our rating if the
company pursued debt-financed acquisitions or shareholder returns
such that it increased leverage to more than 5x on a sustained
basis, or if the company's headroom under its maximum leverage
covenant declined below 15%.

"Although unlikely over the next 12 months, we could raise our
rating on Neenah by one notch if we forecast the company's total
debt to EBITDA to be less than 4x over an economic cycle, and we
believed that the company was committed to maintaining financial
policies that would support this leverage."

Neenah, Wis.-based Neenah Enterprises Inc., through its

NEUBERGER BERMAN 26: S&P Assigns BB- (sf)Rating on Class E Notes
----------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings assigned its ratings to Neuberger Berman Loan
Advisers CLO 26 Ltd./Neuberger Berman Loan Advisers CLO 26 LLC's
$506.0 million floating-rate notes.

The note issuance is a collateralized loan obligation (CLO)
transaction backed primarily by broadly syndicated senior secured
term loans that are governed by collateral quality tests.

The ratings reflect:

-- The diversified collateral pool, which consists primarily of
broadly syndicated speculative-grade senior secured term loans that
are governed by collateral quality tests.

-- The credit enhancement provided through the subordination of
cash flows, excess spread, and overcollateralization.

-- The collateral manager's experienced team, which can affect the
performance of the rated notes through collateral selection,
ongoing portfolio management, and trading.

-- The transaction's legal structure, which is expected to be
bankruptcy remote.

NEXT COMMUNICATIONS: Seeks March 30 Plan Exclusivity Extension
--------------------------------------------------------------
Next Communications, Inc. filed a fourth motion with the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Florida seeking for
an extension of the exclusivity periods for filing and obtaining
acceptance of a chapter 11 plan through March 30, 2018 and May 30,
2018, respectively.

Absent the requested extension, the Debtor's exclusivity period is
slated to expire on November 30, 2017, pursuant to an Order entered
on November 14.

The Debtor seeks exclusivity extension to allow the Debtor ample
time to finalize a Chapter 11 Plan and Disclosure Statement.  The
Debtor tells the Court that it has been working on its claims
analysis to determine expected claims filed against it.  The Debtor
still needs to resolve the claim of 100 NWT Fee.  In addition, the
Debtor says that it has filed an adversary proceeding against
Verizon and Equinix for the loss of server equipment while in their
custody and control.

The Debtor claims that it has had increased revenues for the month
of September in the amount of $128,000.  The revenues for the month
of November are expected to be over $600,000.  The Debtor
anticipates revenues increasing to $1.0 million for December.

The Debtor asserts 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 maintains appropriate insurance on its property.

Accordingly, the Debtor believes good cause exists to grant it an
extension to afford it an opportunity to further grow and continue
developing its revenues to allow it to fund a reorganization plan.

                  About Next Communications

Next Communications, Inc. filed a Chapter 11 bankruptcy petition
(Bankr. S.D. Fla. Case No. 16-10411) on December 21, 2016.  The
petition was signed by Arik Maimon, its CEO. AM Law, LLC represents
the Debtor as counsel.

The Hon. Robert A. Mark presides over the case.

In its petition, the Debtor estimated $1 million to $10 million in
assets and $10 million to $50 million in liabilities.

In addition, Mr. Stuart will have the opportunity to earn an annual

In the event the Company terminates Mr. Stuart for cause (as
defined in the employment agreement), he will be entitled to any
earned but unpaid wages or other compensation (including
reimbursements of his outstanding expenses and unused vacation)
earned through the termination date.  In the event the Company
terminates Mr. Stuart without cause (including death or
disability), he will, subject to his execution of a release of
claims in favor of the Company, be entitled to an amount equal to
Mr. Stuart's annualized base salary in effect on the date of
separation from service, which will be paid in 12 equal consecutive
monthly installments at the monthly base salary rate in effect at
the time of Mr. Stuart's termination.  The Severance Amount will be
in addition to Mr. Stuart's earned wages and other compensation
(including reimbursements of his outstanding expenses and unused
vacation) through the date his employment is terminated from the
Company.  In order to terminate Mr. Stuart for cause, the Company
shall give notice to Mr. Stuart specifying the reason for
termination and providing a period of 30 days to cure the reason
specified. If there is no cure within 30 days or the notified party

NRG ENERGY INC: S&P Rates Senior Unsecured Notes 'BB-'
------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings assigned its 'BB-' issue-level rating and '3'
recovery rating to NRG Energy Inc.'s $870 million senior unsecured
notes, due 2028. The company will use the issuance to refinance

reflects S&P's expectation of meaningful (50%-70%; rounded
estimate: 65%) recovery in the event of default.

of the ongoing business transformation plan, which we expect will
decrease scale somewhat but lead to lower leverage during the next
two years."

quarterly report on Form 10-Q reporting a net loss attributable to

the three months ended June 30, 2017, compared to a net loss
attributable to the Company of $1.94 million on $3.98 million of

of current assets including accounts receivable and prepaid
expenses of approximately $1,409,000, cash and cash equivalents of
$9,871,000, restricted cash of $1,053,000, and deferred costs of

obligations without substantial asset sales or restructuring.

continue to be positive for the foreseeable future.  Furthermore,

ONE HORIZON: CEO Mark White Provides Update to Shareholders
-----------------------------------------------------------
One Horizon Group, Inc., issued the following letter to
shareholders dated Nov. 28, 2017 from Mark White, chief executive
officer.

Dear Fellow Shareholders -

In writing this letter, I would like to begin by sharing my
gratitude for each of you and my confidence and pride in the future
of One Horizon Group.

I am the first to recognize that in the past few months, our
Company has undergone profound change and I want to share with you
a few words about my vision for our bright future.

As One Horizon Group's Founder and CEO, my conviction that we must
succeed derives from the responsibility I personally embrace to
lead our Company's strategy to identify, acquire and integrate
businesses that will allow us to lead the next wave of cutting edge
technologies driving the growth of disruptive social media,
on-demand video, gaming, education, security and electronic
commerce mobile applications.  We will integrate the target
acquisitions with our existing business, streamlining operational
efficiencies and increasing profitability.

There are tremendous opportunities within our sights to acquire
Asia-based businesses ready to launch their operations globally as
well as European and United States-based businesses that are
recognized leaders in their respective areas, poised to expand into
large markets including China with the international expertise and
guidance of our team.

Consumer behavior is shifting at a rapid pace and we are positioned
at the intersection of great innovation.  Our shift in strategy is
based on significant diligence and we expect to have a front-row
seat at the convergence of the physical and digital worlds that
will drive unprecedented business opportunities for One Horizon
Group.  Although our ambitions may appear grand, we are laser
focused on execution and I am confident we will achieve our goals.

As we advance our Company in the marketplace as a forward-thinking
technology acquisition business, I recognize that beyond these
exciting technologies, platforms and content we will acquire, we
must deliver unique value propositions to our customers.  I see a
future where our technologies will make lives more exciting, our
platforms will be inviting and easy to use, and our content will be
unique and desirable.  We have done our homework and we will not be
reinventing the wheel; our target acquisitions are already
capturing the hearts, minds and finances of significant population
groups spanning multiple continents.

For a moment, I would like to talk about people.  It has been said
that "leadership is a conversation."  Many years ago, I learned
that by listening to my customers, colleagues and shareholders, I
might hear new ideas that could help us improve our Company.  I am
proud to be working with a great team including Edwin Lun, Chief
Operating Officer, and Martin Ward, Chief Financial Officer.  We
plan to regularly communicate with our customers and shareholders.

We will be measured by our innovation, our sales, our
profitability, our corporate responsibility, our social impact, and
our share price, but we will always maintain our core values. I am
deeply aware that our stock price is an important measure of the
progress that we make in the weeks, months and years to come. The
catalyst for this progress will be completing strategic
acquisitions that build our capabilities to deliver exponential
returns to our shareholders by accelerating the reach of
technologies, platforms and content to large numbers of
subscribers, users and I expect, raving fans.

While quarterly and annual reports and future updates will quantify
our success, I will be taking measure daily so we can anticipate
areas of challenge and mobilize our team to take clear and decisive
actions that will deliver results.  It is in these details that we
will harness the driving force that will take One Horizon Group to
the next level.

Thank you all deeply for your support and for joining us on this
evolution.

Warm regards,

Mark White

Case No. 17-06737) on June 14, 2017. Eric Slocum Sparks, Esq., at
Law Offices of Eric Slocum Sparks, P.C. serves as bankruptcy
counsel.

The Debtor's assets and liabilities are both below $1 million.


OTERO COUNTY: QHR Not Guilty of Policy Limits Misrepresentation
---------------------------------------------------------------
Bankruptcy Judge Robert H. Jacobvitz tried the related adversary
proceedings captioned UNITED TORT CLAIMANTS, as individuals,
Plaintiffs, QUORUM HEALTH RESOURCES, LLC, Defendant, Misc.
Proceeding No. 13-00007, Adversary Nos. 12-1204j through 12-1207j,
12-1209j, 12-1210j, 12-1212 through 12-1215j, 12-1221j, 12-1235j,
12-1238j through 12-1241j, 12-1243j, 12-1244j, 12-1246j, 12-1248j,
12-1249j, 12-1251j through 12-1261j, 12-1271j, 12-1276j and
12-1278j (Bankr. D.N.M) in phases.

The first two phases tried issues common to all of the related
adversary proceedings. In Phase I, the Court determined the duty
and breach elements of the United Tort Claimants' negligence claims
against Quorum Health Resources, LLC. In Phase II, the Court
determined causation and allocation of fault. In Phase III, the
Court will adjudicate damages for the individual members of the
United Tort Claimants

QHR requests the Court to require any judgment against QHR awarding
damages to a member of the UTC to include language that expressly
limits enforcement against available insurance only. The UTC oppose
this request, asserting that QHR fraudulently induced the UTC to
agree to limit enforcement of any judgment against available
insurance by making materially false representations to the UTC
regarding the nature and extent of available insurance coverage.
More specifically, the UTC asserts that QHR made a
misrepresentation relating to the erosion of policy limits. The
parties have fully briefed the issue, which the Court has termed
the "Judgment Language Issue." The Court took the Judgment Language
Issue under advisement following a final, evidentiary hearing on
the Judgment Language Issue, held June 19, 2017.

After considering the evidence admitted at the final hearing on the
Judgment Language Issue, the Court finds that the UTC have failed
to sustain their burden of proving that QHR made any materially
false representations to the UTC regarding the extent of the
available insurance coverage. Consequently, in accordance with the
parties' settlement agreement and the Third Amended Plan of
Reorganization confirmed in Otero County Hospital Association,
Inc.'s Chapter 11 bankruptcy case, the UTC may enforce any judgment
awarded against QHR in these related adversary proceedings solely
against available insurance, and not against QHR's assets. Any
judgment entered in favor of a member of the UTC and against QHR
will contain language expressly limiting enforcement against
available insurance only, and not against QHR's assets.

The bankruptcy case is in re: OTERO COUNTY HOSPITAL ASSOCIATION,
INC., Debtor, Case No. 11-11-13686 JL (Bankr. D.N.M.).

OXFORD FINANCE: Moody's Assigns Ba3 CFR; Outlook Stable
-------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a Ba3 corporate family (CFR) and
senior unsecured rating to Oxford Finance LLC with a stable
outlook. The rating actions follows Oxford's announced $300 million
senior unsecured issuance.

RATINGS RATIONALE

The Ba3 ratings reflect the company's consistently strong
profitability, as well as solid capital level and asset quality.
Offsetting these attributes is the company's relatively small size
in the highly competitive healthcare finance market along with its
concentrated loan portfolio and key man risk with respect to its
founder and CEO.

Over the past several years, Oxford has demonstrated solid
financial performance with net income to average managed assets of
5.8% in the third quarter of 2017. Tangible common equity (TCE) to
total managed assets (TMA) is 28.4%, after incorporating the
effects of the planned senior unsecured issuance, a decrease from
36.5% as of September 30, 2017. Moody's expect Oxford's capital
ratio as measured by TCE to TMA to remain above 25%.

Oxford is a specialty finance company that provides primarily
senior secured term lending to companies, often startups, in the
life sciences and healthcare sectors. As of September 30, 2017,
Oxford had $1.52 billion in loans outstanding. The company's loan
performance has been consistent with credit costs, through
September 30, 2017 the company's cumulative net charge-offs were
$34.1 million out of $4.3 billion in aggregate loan originations
since 2002.

Oxford is privately held with affiliates of Wafra Capital Partners
Inc. owning 75% of the company, with the remainder owned by
Oxford's management. The $300 million senior unsecured bond
issuance will be used to pay a $125 million dividend to Oxford
Holdco LLC, Oxford's corporate parent, pay down revolving senior
secured debt by $100 million and the remaining $75 million for
general corporate purposes.

The rating outlook is stable, reflecting Moody's expectation that
the company will be able to continue to grow its healthcare finance
business while maintaining its strong financial performance, asset
quality and liquidity position.

The ratings could be upgraded if the company strengthens its
franchise position such as improving its competitive position in
the healthcare services sector and diversifies its funding sources
whereas secured debt to gross tangible assets falls meaningfully
below 35%, while maintaining profitability, capital level and asset
quality strength.

The ratings could be downgraded if the company's loan performance
suffers or its leverage as measured by the company's debt
(including non-recourse secured financing and securitization
facilities) to equity ratio increases above 3X.

Oxford is a specialty finance company headquartered in Alexandria,
Virginia.

The principal methodology used in this rating was Finance Companies
published on December 2016.



OXFORD FINANCE: S&P Rates New Senior Unsecured Notes at 'B+'
------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings assigned its 'B+' rating to Oxford Finance LLC's
offering of $300 million of senior unsecured notes due in 2022.

Oxford is planning to use the net proceeds from the offering to
repay its senior secured revolving credit facilities; pay a
dividend to its parent, Oxford Holdco LLC; and for general
corporate purposes. S&P forecasts pro forma leverage, as measured
by debt to adjusted total equity (ATE), for the $300 million
offering to be about 2.6x. That said, S&P continues to expect the
company to operate with debt to ATE of less than 2.75x over the
next 12-24 months. As of Sept. 30, 2017, the company's total debt
to ATE was 1.7x.

S&P's ratings on Oxford reflect the company's good niche position
in health care lending, its track record of low credit losses, and
its low leverage and good profitability. Countering these ratings
strengths are the company's limited business/portfolio
diversification and reliance on secured funding facilities.

PARALLAX HEALTH: Incurs $2.2 Million Net Loss in Q3 2016
--------------------------------------------------------
Parallax Health Sciences, Inc., filed with the Securities and
Exchange Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q reporting a
net loss of $2.21 million on $5.59 million of revenue for the three
months ended Sept. 30, 2016, compared to a net loss of $168,388 on
$4.71 million of revenue for the three months ended Sept. 30,
2016.

For the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2016, the Company reported a
net loss of $6.12 million on $19.80 million of revenue compared to
a net loss of $709,308 on $4.71 million of revenue for the same
period in 2016.

As of Sept. 30, 2017, Parallax had $8.65 million in total assets,
$19.52 million in total liabilities and a total stockholders'
deficit of $10.86 million.

As at Sept. 30, 2016, the Company had cash in the amount of
$111,327 compared to $912,399 as of Dec. 31, 2015.

The Company had a working capital deficit of $2,016,787 as of Sept.
30, 2016, compared to working capital of $827,499 as of
Dec. 31, 2015.  The decrease in working capital of $2,844,286 is
primarily attributable to a decrease in cash of $801,072, a
decrease in trade and other receivables, net of allowance, of
$429,110, a decrease in rebates receivable of $359,399, a decrease
in inventory of $302,949, a decrease in employee advances of
$14,894, an increase in prepaid expenses of $34,137, an increase in
accounts payable and accrued expenses of $894,277, an increase in
pension contribution payable of $6,882, and a decrease in related
party payables of $69,840.

During the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2016, the Company used
$185,914 of cash flow for operating activities compared with
$593,227 provided by operating activities for the nine months ended
Sept. 30, 2015.  The decrease in cash provided by operating
activities of $779,141 is attributable an increase in net loss of
$5,416,980, an increase in depreciation and amortization expense of
$145,784, an increase in stock compensation/stock option
amortization of $127,673, an increase in discount amortization of
$3,569,324, a decrease in bad debt allowance of $7,786,735, a
decrease in accruals converted to related party loans of $303,750,
a decrease in trade and other receivables of $10,924,391, a
decrease in inventories of $302,949, an increase in prepaid
expenses of $6,877, an increase in loans receivable of $37,045, a
decrease in accounts payable and accrued expenses of $2,340,051, an
increase in pension contribution payable of $6,882, and an increase
in related party payables of $36,294.

During the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2016, the Company used
$91,073 of cash flow for investing activities compared with $2,227
for the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2015.  The increase in cash
used for investing activities of $88,846 is attributable the
purchase of professional equipment.

During the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2016, the Company used
$562,065 of cash flow from financing activities, compared with
$37,980 provided by financing activities for the nine months ended
Sept. 30, 2015.  The decrease in cash flows provided by financing
activities is attributable to an increase in proceeds from notes
payable of $100,000, an increase in repayment of notes payable of
$629,085, and a decrease in proceeds of $37,980 from the sale of
common stock.

During the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2016, the Company received
$5,000 from the issuance of common shares or other equity
instruments, compared to $37,980 in proceeds during the nine months
ended Sept. 30, 2015.

The Company has suffered recurring losses from operations.  The
continuation of the Company's operations is dependent upon the
Company's attaining and maintaining profitable operations and
raising additional capital as needed.  The Company anticipates that
it will have to raise additional funds through private placements
of the Company's equity securities and/or debt financing to
complete its business plan.

According to Parallax, "The Company will require additional
financing in order to proceed with its plan of operations,
including approximately $2,000,000 over the next 12 months to pay
for its ongoing expenses.  These cash requirements include working
capital, general and administrative expenses, the development of
the Company's product line, and the pursuit of acquisitions.  These
cash requirements are in excess of the Company's current cash and
working capital resources.  Accordingly, the Company will require
additional financing in order to continue operations and to repay
its liabilities.  There is no assurance that the financing will be
completed as planned or at all.  If the Company is unable to secure
adequate capital to continue the Company's planned operations, the
Company's shareholders may lose some or all of their investment and
the Company's business may fail.

"The Company anticipates continuing to rely on equity sales of its
common stock in order to continue to fund its business operations.
Issuances of additional shares will result in dilution to the
Company's existing stockholders.  There is no assurance that the
Company will achieve any additional sales of its equity securities
or arrange for debt or other financing to fund its planned business
activities."

the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker PQ.

PetroQuest reported a net loss available to common stockholders of
$96.24 million on $66.66 million of oil and gas revenues for the
year ended Dec. 31, 2016, compared to a net loss available to
common stockholders of $299.92 million on $115.96 million of oil

                          *     *     *

In June 2017, Moody's Investors Service withdrew all assigned
ratings for PetroQuest Energy, including the 'Caa3' Corporate
Family Rating, following the elimination of all of its rated debt.

In October 2016, S&P Global Ratings raised the corporate credit
rating on PetroQuest Energy to 'CCC' from 'SD'.  The outlook is
negative.  "The upgrade reflects our reassessment of the company's
corporate credit rating following the exchange of the majority of
its outstanding 10% senior unsecured notes due September 2017 at
par," said S&P Global Ratings credit analyst Daniel Krauss.  The
negative outlook reflects the company's current debt leverage
levels, which S&P views to be unsustainable, as well as its less
than adequate liquidity position.


PHILADELPHIA ENERGY: Moody's Cuts CFR to Ca on High Default Risk
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded Philadelphia Energy Solution
Refining and Marketing LLC's (PESRM) Corporate Family Rating (CFR)
to Ca from B3, Probability of Default Rating to Ca-PD from B3-PD,
and the rating on its senior secured credit term loan to Ca from
B3. The outlook remains negative.

"The downgrade of Philadelphia Energy Solutions R&M's ratings
reflects the very high risk of default on PESRM's term loan that
matures in April 2018," said Arvinder Saluja, Moody's Vice
President- Senior Analyst.

RATINGS RATIONALE

PESRM's Ca CFR reflects the high likelihood of default or debt
restructuring in early 2018 as the company hasn't been able to
resolve its refinancing negotiations with its lenders. If an
agreement is not reached shortly, Moody's expect a liquidity crunch
for PESRM given the substantial lead time for crude oil procurement
and that the company's intermediation agreement is set to expire in
March 2018. PESRM has been contending with high leverage in an
unfavorable refining margin environment, which is exacerbated by
the high cost of renewable energy credits. The company previously
benefitted materially from a wider crude price differential, the
absence of which has led to lower availability of cost-advantaged
domestic crude for PESRM and other US refiners, particularly on the
East Coast. By purchasing cheaper crude and selling product at
favorable market prices in the PADD I region in the US, PESRM was
able to generate significant EBITDA even though it faced some
operational challenges. The rating is supported by the management
team's substantial refining industry experience and a large
combined refining capacity.

PESRM has weak liquidity given the upcoming expiration of the
intermediation agreement and revolver maturity in March 2018, ahead
of the $523 million term loan maturity in April 2018 . Without a
maturity extension or restructuring, PESRM would likely have to
file for bankruptcy protection and to continue operations without
the intermediation agreement which would be very challenging.
PESRM's liquidity has thus far been significantly enhanced by the
intermediation agreement, which accounts for substantially all of
the refineries' crude supply and product off-take. However, not
unlike other refiners with intermediation agreements, the company
is highly reliant on it and would face the enormous challenge to
arrange additional liquidity when it terminates. There are no
active financial maintenance covenants associated with the
revolver, but it has only approximately $20 million in availability
and is facing a maturity in March 2018.

If no resolution is attained, or if it entails debt restructuring
or company filing for bankruptcy protection, the ratings are likely
to be downgraded further. Moody's could consider an upgrade if the
company is able to refinance or extend the maturity of its term
loan without debt restructuring.

Philadelphia Energy Solutions Refining and Marketing LLC (PESRM)
owns a refinery complex in Philadelphia with two refineries, Girard
Point and Point Breeze. These assets were previously owned by
Sunoco, Inc., and in September 2012 were contributed to
Philadelphia Energy Solutions which is jointly owned by The Carlyle
Group and Sunoco, Inc.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Refining and
Marketing Industry published in November 2016.

PQ CORP: Moody's Rates Proposed $300MM Senior Unsecured Notes Caa1
------------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a Caa1 rating to PQ
Corporation's proposed $300 million Senior Unsecured Notes.
Proceeds from the notes issuance will be used to repay existing
unsecured debt and pay transaction-related fees and expenses. All
other ratings on PQ, including the B2 Corporate Family Rating
("CFR"), are unchanged, and the rating outlook remains stable.

"The proposed transaction will extend debt maturities and modestly
lower interest expense, but will not materially change the
company's expected cash flow generation or deleveraging trajectory
in the next 18-24 months," said Ben Nelson, Moody's Vice President
-- Senior Credit Officer and lead analyst for PQ Corporation.

Assignments:

Issuer: PQ Corporation

-- Senior Unsecured Regular Bond/Debenture, Assigned Caa1 (LGD6)

The assigned rating is subject to Moody's review of the final terms
and conditions. The ratings on the existing unsecured notes are
likely to be withdrawn following full repayment.

RATINGS RATIONALE

The B2 CFR is principally constrained by the company's leveraged
balance sheet, modest expected free cash flow generation, and
expectations for an acquisitive growth strategy over the rating
horizon. Leading market positions in diverse end markets, broad
customer base with many long-term relationships, and geographic
diversity lend stability to the financial performance of the
business compared to many other rated peers in the chemical
industry, and structural advantages related to the proximity of
silicates and sulfuric acid facilities to customer locations. The
rating also benefits from good liquidity and financial policies
that include planned deleveraging over the next few years to a
target net leverage range of 3.0-3.5x (Net Debt/EBITDA) following
the company's initial public offering in September 2017 and
subsequent debt repayment in October 2017.

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

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

The principal methodology used in this rating was Global Chemical
Industry Rating Methodology published in December 2013.

Headquartered in Malvern, Pa., PQ Corporation is a leading provider
of inorganic specialty chemicals, including sodium silicates,
silicate derivatives, catalysts, reflective glass spheres, and
engineered glass materials. CCMP Capital Advisors purchased a stake
in the company in late 2014. Affiliates of The Carlyle Group
previously purchased the company in a secondary leveraged buyout
from CCMP in July 2007. The company acquired INEOS' silica business
through a leveraged transaction in July 2008. INEOS and members of
management own the remainder of the company. PQ completed an IPO
and began trading as a public company in September 2017.



PQ CORP: S&P Rates Proposed $300MM Senior Unsecured Notes 'B'
-------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings assigned its 'B' issue-level and '5' recovery
ratings to U.S.-based specialty catalysts, materials, and chemicals
company PQ Corp.'s proposed $300 million senior unsecured notes due
2025. The '5' recovery rating indicates S&P's expectation for a
modest recovery (10%-30%; rounded estimate: 15%) to creditors in
the event of a payment default.

S&P said, "At the same time, we affirmed our 'BB-' issue-level
ratings on the company's senior secured first-lien term loan and
senior secured notes. The '2' recovery ratings remain unchanged,
indicating our expectation for substantial recovery (70%-90%;
rounded estimate: 85%) to creditors in the event of a payment
default.

"We expect the company to use net proceeds from the proposed notes
issuance to redeem its existing 8.5% senior notes due 2022 and
floating-rate senior unsecured notes due 2022.

"Our 'B+' corporate credit rating and stable rating outlook on PQ
Corp. are unchanged."

ISSUE RATINGS Recovery Analysis

Key analytical factors

S&P said, "Our simulated default scenario assumes a payment default
in 2020 due to weak economic conditions causing scaled-back
spending in consumer and municipal end markets that result in the
company's operational performance deteriorating.

"We continue to value the company on a going-concern basis using a
5.5x multiple and a $364 million projected emergence EBITDA. The
multiple is in line with other specialty chemical companies', such
as Solenis International L.P."

Simulated default assumptions

-- Simulated year of default: 2020
-- EBITDA at emergence: $361 million
-- Implied enterprise value multiple: 5.5x

Simplified waterfall

-- Net enterprise value: $1.90 billion
-- Obligor (U.S. operations)/nonobligor (foreign operations)
valuation split: 66.7%/33.3%
-- Collateral value available to secured creditors: $1.36 billion
-- Secured first-lien debt: $1.56 billion
    -- Recovery expectations: 70%-90% (rounded estimate: 85%)
-- Collateral available to unsecured creditors: $98 million
-- Unsecured debt claims: $530 million
    -- Recovery expectations: 10%-30% (rounded estimate: 15%)
Note: All debt amounts include six months of prepetition interest.

The 2017 Plan as approved by the stockholders provided for the

PROAMPAC PG: Moody's Affirms B3 CFR; Outlook Stable
---------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service affirmed ProAmpac PG Borrower LLC's B3
Corporate Family Rating ("CFR") and B3-PD Probability of Default
Rating following the company's repricing and $95 million
incremental upsize of its First Lien Term Loan. The proceeds of the
add-on term loan will be used to pay down the balance on the
revolver, fund an acquisition and add cash on the balance sheet.
The revolver had been drawn down to fund acquisitions at the end of
the third quarter and the company is expected to close another
acquisition before year-end. The rating outlook is stable.

Issuer: ProAmpac PG Borrower LLC

Affirmations:

-- Corporate Family Rating, Affirmed B3

-- Probability of Default Rating, Affirmed B3 - PD

-- $75 million Senior Secured First Lien Revolving Credit
    Facility due 2021, Affirmed B2 (LGD3)

-- $1,167 million (including $95m add-on) Senior Secured First
    Lien Term Loan due 2023, Affirmed B2 (LGD3)

-- $215 million Senior Secured Second Lien Term Loan due 2024,
    Affirmed Caa2 (LGD6)

Outlook Actions:

-- Outlook, Remains Stable

RATINGS RATIONALE

The affirmation of the B3 rating and stable outlook reflect the
anticipated benefit of acquisitions and completed and in process
synergies. The affirmation also reflects the projected benefits of
various productivity and cost savings initiatives and an
expectation of adequate liquidity. Although the $75 million
revolver is small for the company's pro forma revenue of
approximately over $1.1 billion, the facility is expected to be
undrawn at the close of the transaction with good covenant cushion
and the company is expected to generate positive free cash flow.

The stable outlook reflects an expectation that ProAmpac will
benefit from completed and in process synergies and various
initiatives. The company will need to execute on its integration
and operating plans as there is little room in its credit metrics
for negative variance.

The ratings could be upgraded if the company sustainably improves
credit metrics within the context of a stable operating and
competitive environment. An upgrade would also be dependent upon
the maintenance of good liquidity, including an appropriately sized
revolver, and appropriate financial and acquisition policies. The
ratings could be upgraded if adjusted total debt to EBITDA moves
below 5.5 times, funds from operations to debt remains above 8.0%,
and EBITDA to gross interest coverage increases to above 3.0
times.

The rating could be downgraded if there is deterioration in the
credit metrics, liquidity or the operating and competitive
environment. Additional debt financed acquisitions, excessive
acquisitions (regardless of financing) or a move to a more
aggressive financial profile could also prompt a downgrade.
Specifically, the rating could be downgraded if total adjusted debt
to EBITDA remains above 6.0 times, EBITDA to gross interest
coverage declines below 2.0 times, and/or funds from operations to
debt declines below 6.0%.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Packaging
Manufacturers: Metal, Glass, and Plastic Containers published in
September 2015.

Headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio, ProAmpac is a supplier of
flexible plastic packaging products serving customers in the food,
retail, healthcare and industrial end markets. In 2015, the company
was formed through the combination of Prolamina, Ampac Packaging
and Coating Excellence International ("CEI"). The company has 19
manufacturing facilities in the United States, which includes the 3
new facilities, 3 in Europe, 2 in Southeast Asia and 1 in Canada.
Approximately 93% of pro forma sales are generated in North America
and approximately 7% are generated internationally. Their primary
raw materials are resin (PET, LDPE, HDPE, polypropylene), paper,
foil, film and fabric. Pro forma net sales for the 12 months ended
September 30, 2017 totaled approximately $1.17 billion. ProAmpac is
a Pritzker Group Private Capital company.



PROPEL SCHOOLS: S&P Affirms Revenue Bonds at BB+, Stable Outlook
----------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings revised its outlook to stable from negative and
affirmed its 'BB+' rating on Allegheny County Industrial
Development Authority, Pa.'s series 2013 charter school revenue
bonds, issued on behalf of School Facilities Development Inc. (SFD)
for Propel Schools - Braddock Hills.

"The stable outlook reflects our view of the continued operations
of the charter school for the past two years," said S&P Global
Ratings credit analyst Kaiti Wang. "Despite the unresolved charter
renewal with a charter term that expired on June 30, 2015 and no
acknowledgement of renewal by the authorizer, this has not impeded
the school's ability to operate in fiscal years 2016 and 2017,
passing what we view as a critical period of risk and uncertainty
regarding the school's charter standing," Ms. Wang added.

S&P expects Braddock Hills to sustain its robust coverage on the
bonds with modest cash levels and to continue to operate under its
existing charter as it has done in the past two years.

Propel is the only charter school system in the Pittsburgh region
to operate more than two schools. Propel Braddock Hills is one of
eight separately chartered schools currently administered by Propel
Schools. The eight schools serve primarily K-8: Propel Homestead
(Homestead K-8 and Andrew Street High School), McKeesport, East,
Montour (K-10 in fiscal 2018), Braddock Hills (K-12), Northside,
Hazelwood, and Pitcairn.

RiceBran incurred a net loss attributable to common shareholders of
$9.10 million in 2016 compared to a loss attributable to common
shareholders of $8.3 million in 2015.  As of Sept. 30, 2017,
RiceBran had $32.90 million in total assets, $20.51 million in
total liabilities and $12.39 million in total equity attributable
to shareholders.

Marcum LLP, in New York, issued a "going concern" qualification on
the consolidated financial statements for the year ended Dec. 31,
2016, citing that the Company has suffered recurring losses from
operations resulting in an accumulated deficit of $260 million at
Dec. 31, 2016.  This factor among other things, raises substantial
doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern.

RMS TITANIC: Has Until December 14 to File Chapter 11 Plan
----------------------------------------------------------
Judge Paul M. Glenn of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Middle
District of Florida has extended exclusive periods during which
only RMS Titanic, Inc., and certain of its affiliates may file a
plan and to solicit acceptance of said plan through and including
December 14, 2017, and February 14, 2018, respectively.

The Troubled Company Reporter has previously reported that the
Debtors asked the Court for exclusivity extension in order to allow
the Debtors and the Committees to continue their efforts to work
toward a sale and plan contemplated in the Plan Support Agreement.

The Debtors and the Committees have entered into the Plan Support
Agreement approved by the Court by Order entered on July 6, 2017.
The PSA contemplates a marketing and sale process for the Debtors
to be consummated through parallel sale and plan confirmation
processes.

The Debtors and the Committees are each working diligently toward
the sale and plan process contemplated by the PSA, which includes
certain milestones related to filing a plan and disclosure
statement. The Committees have agreed to extend certain milestones
in the PSA in connection with the sale process and the filing of a
plan and disclosure statement to allow the Debtors time to select
and enter into a definitive agreement with a stalking horse bidder.
To that end, both Committees have consented to the extension of
exclusivity.

Moreover, the Debtors said that any extension of the Debtors'
exclusive periods to dates prior to December 14, 2017, and February
14, 2018, would merely waste estate resources seeking further
extensions of exclusivity while the Debtors should be focusing on
consummating the sale and plan contemplated in the PSA.

ROOSTER ENERGY: USSIC Opposes OK of Amended Disclosure Statement
----------------------------------------------------------------
U.S. Specialty Insurance Company filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the Western District of Louisiana an objection to Rooster
Petroleum, LLC and Rooster Oil & Gas, LLC's amended disclosure
statement in support of their amended joint chapter 11 plan dated
Nov. 15, 2017.

USSIC raises the following objections:

   * The Rooster Amended Disclosure Statement and Amended Plan
contemplate an exit facility. A financial projection attached to
the disclosure statement suggests the facility will approach $12
million, but the Rooster Debtors do not disclose the source of
funds or terms of the exit facility. The Rooster Debtors
contemplate a plan supplement that may include more information,
but at this time the Rooster Amended Disclosure Statement fails to
provide adequate information. The terms and sources of the exit
facility are essential for creditors to understand the implications
of the plan on the Rooster Debtors' assets and their prospects for
an effective reorganization.

   * The Rooster Debtors continue to rely on the concept of
"Rooster Bonds New Agreements," when no such agreements exist and
no terms clearly providing for treatment of USSIC's claim are
proposed. Therefore, it is not possible for USSIC to know how its
claim is being treated from the Rooster Amended Disclosure
Statement.

   * The Rooster Debtors further rely on a new concept in the
Rooster Amended Disclosure Statement of the "Morrison Agreements,"
which are also not disclosed. The Morrison Agreements appear to be
some post-confirmation intercompany agreement, but it's impossible
to discern what the Rooster Debtors propose from the Rooster
Amended Disclosure Statement itself.

   * The Rooster Amended Disclosure Statement and Amended Plan
introduce a new concept of "Rooster Non-Vesting Assets," which will
only be identified in some looming plan supplement. The Rooster
Debtors should disclose these assets at this time because that list
of assets could greatly affect the administrative liabilities of
the estate and relate directly to their ability to comply with
decommissioning and other environmental obligations.

For these reasons, USSIC prays the Court sustain these objections
and grant such other and further relief as may be just and proper.

SANDRIDGE ENERGY: D. Hefner Settlement Claims Moot, 10th Cir. Rules
-------------------------------------------------------------------
In the case captioned SANDRIDGE ENERGY, INC. SHAREHOLDER DERIVATIVE
LITIGATION, PAUL ELLIOT, on behalf of the Paul Elliot IRA R/O,
derivatively on behalf of Sandridge Energy, Inc.; LISA EZELL,
derivatively on behalf of SandRidge Energy, Inc.,
Plaintiffs-Appellees, v. TOM L. WARD; JIM J. BREWER; EVERETT R.
DOBSON; WILLIAM A. GILLILAND; DANIEL W. JORDAN; ROY T. OLIVER, JR.;
JEFFREY S. SEROTA; SPECIAL LITIGATION COMMITTEE OF SANDRIDGE'S
BOARD OF DIRECTORS, Defendants-Appellees, and SANDRIDGE ENERGY,
INC., Nominal Defendant-Appellee, and TLW LAND & CATTLE, L.P.; WCT
RESOURCES, L.L.C.; 192 INVESTMENTS, L.L.C., Defendants. DALE
HEFNER, Objector-Appellant, No. 16-6014 (10th Cir.), Hefner appeals
from the district court's denial of his motion for
settlement-related discovery, approval of the settlement agreement,
and order regarding attorneys' fees.

The U.S. Court of Appeals affirms the district court's decision.

This case concerns the settlement agreement and attorneys' fees
related to two separate shareholder derivative suits on behalf of
SandRidge Energy Inc. against its directors. The first of those
actions was filed in federal district court in January 2013. The
federal derivative suit alleged self-dealing, usurpation of
corporate opportunities, and misappropriation by Tom Ward,
SandRidge's founding CEO, and entities affiliated with him. It also
claimed that certain Sandridge officers and directors were
complicit and breached their fiduciary duties.

The second derivative suit was filed in Oklahoma state court in
January 2013 by Mr. Hefner. The director-defendants moved the state
court to stay the action pending a resolution in the federal case,
or in the alternative to dismiss the suit entirely. Mr. Hefner
objected, and the state court stayed the action but denied the
motion to dismiss. After further briefing and a renewed motion to
dismiss, the state court again denied the motion. In November 2014,
the state court entered a stipulated and agreed to order granting
SandRidge's motion to stay.

Mr. Hefner contends that the district court erred in exercising
subject-matter jurisdiction over the federal derivative litigation
because the underlying parties had not proven diversity of
citizenship. According to Mr. Hefner, "Plaintiffs had to establish
. . . that not only are the entities members' citizenship diverse
from that of Plaintiffs, but that their members' members, such as
trustees, limited partners, and beneficiaries, are also diverse."

The initial disclosure statements did not say what states these
entities are citizens of, nor did they declare who the members'
members are or of what states those members are citizens.
Accordingly, the Court requested Plaintiffs to provide this
additional information. It shows the citizenship of each of the
defendant parties. The Ward entities, based on the citizenship of
their members, are citizens of Oklahoma. Thus, diversity
jurisdiction is proper under 28 U.S.C. section 1332.

Sandridge argues that Mr. Hefner no longer has standing to bring a
claim because the claim has been mooted by subsequent events. The
Court agrees that Mr. Hefner's claims have been mooted except his
claim for attorneys' fees.

According to SandRidge, the appeal is moot not only because Mr.
Hefner himself no longer has standing to pursue a derivative action
or objection but because no one else has standing to pursue such a
claim either. Thus, "[i]f Mr. Hefner were somehow to prevail on
this appeal, the settlement would be unwound and the case would be
remanded, but after remand there would be no derivative plaintiffs
with standing to litigate the suit and all of the claims against
the prepetition directors and officers have been released and
discharged in the bankruptcy." It would, therefore, be impossible
for the district court to grant the relief that Mr. Hefner
requests.

If Mr. Hefner were to succeed in showing that the district court
abused its discretion in approving the settlement, this court could
reverse the settlement judgment and remand for further action. On
remand, the district court would then have to dismiss the
derivative suit entirely because none of the plaintiffs have
standing to pursue it -- all their shares have been cancelled, and
all their claims have become property of reorganized SandRidge.
Thus, the relief initially requested -- a settlement that is more
favorable to pre-petition SandRidge -- is impossible to grant, and
Mr. Hefner's revised request of a declaration that the district
court erred would be nothing more than "the satisfaction of a
declaration that a person was wronged."

SBRS INC: Wants Access to Cash Collateral Through May 30
--------------------------------------------------------
SBRS, Inc., seeks authorization from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the Central District of California to use cash collateral for a
period through May 30, 2018.

A hearing on the Debtor's request is scheduled for Jan. 3, 2018, at
9:30 a.m.

The Debtor proposes to grant the secured creditor a replacement
lien in the Debtor's post-petition cash and accounts receivable and
the proceeds thereof, to the same extent, validity, and priority as
any lien held by the secured creditor as of the Petition Date, to
the extent cash collateral is used by the Debtor.

The Debtor says that it is seeking for court permission to use cash
and cash equivalents on hand and hereafter generated due to the
nature of the Debtor's business.  The Debtor's business must
provide its tenants with the highest quality of service on a
continuous basis.  Failure to do so will result in irreparable
damage to reputation, revenues and asset values.

The Debtor's property at 3442 Malaga Court, Calabasas, California
91302, is its primary income asset.  According to the Debtor, the
asset is well managed and generating positive cash flow.

The Debtor also notes that its recent operating results and future
projections indicate that this trend will continue and improve over
the next year, providing ample adequate protection to the secured
creditors' interests.

The Debtor tells the Court that on Nov. 21, 2017, a broker opinion
of value was issued in the approximate amount of $1.35 million.
Bank of America holds the first mortgage in the scheduled amount of
$1.35 million.  JP Morgan Chase Bank holds the second mortgage in
the scheduled amount of $226,898.  Royale Westminster Properties,
Inc., holds a third position lien in the scheduled amount of
$185,000.  The Calabasas Park Homeowners Association holds a fourth
position lien in the scheduled amount of $1,200.

SBRS says additional adequate protection will include these
provisions in the court order approving the use of cash
collateral:

     1. the Secured Creditors will receive a replacement lien
        against postpetition cash, accounts, receivables and
        inventory, and the proceeds of each of the foregoing, to
        the same extent and priority as any duly perfected and
        unavoidable liens in cash collateral held by such secured
        creditor as of the Petition Date, limited to the amount
        of any cash collateral of such secured creditor as of the
        Petition Date, to the extent that any cash collateral of
        secured creditor is actually used by the Debtor.
        However, the lien will not reach new assets generated
        from services, like collections from personal training
        sessions, except to the extent of the value of the member
        related dues paid in the generation of these services;
        and

     2. the Debtor will provide to the Secured Creditors all
        interim statements and operating reports required to be
        submitted to the Office of the U.S. Trustee, and monthly
        cash flow reports, broken down by the expense line items
        contained in the budget, within l5 days after the end
        of each monthly period after the Petition Date.

The Debtor contends that those provisions, coupled with the value
that will be preserved and generated through the continued
operation of the Debtor's business, will provide the Secured
Creditors all the protection required under 11 U.S.C. Section 363.

owned subsidiary of the Company, providing for the merger of the
Company with and into SG Nevada Merger Company with SG Nevada
Merger Company surviving the merger, for the sole purpose of
changing the Company's state of incorporation from Delaware to
Nevada, including to approve the Charter and Bylaws of the
surviving corporation.

At the close of business on Oct. 17, 2017, the record date for the
special meeting, there were 89,636,895 shares of Class A Common
Stock, par value $0.01 per share, of the Company, outstanding and
entitled to vote.  At the special meeting 77,127,562 shares of
Company Common Stock, or approximately 86% of the eligible voting
shares, were represented either in person or by proxy.

in 2014.  Scientific Games had $7.06 billion in total assets, $9.03
billion in total liabilities and a $1.97 billion total

                          *    *    *

As reported by the TCR on Oct. 4, 2017, Moody's Investors Service
confirmed Scientific Games Corporation's ("SGC") 'B2' Corporate
Family Rating and 'B2-PD' Probability of Default Rating.  The
confirmation of the 'B2' Corporate Family Rating reflects Moody's
expectations that the proposed transaction, although primarily debt
funded, does not materially change Moody's expectation for
continued reduction in leverage from current levels, which is key
to the company maintaining its existing rating.

In July 2017, S&P Global Ratings affirmed its ratings on Scientific
Games, including its 'B' corporate credit rating.  The outlook is
stable.  "The affirmation of our 'B' corporate credit rating
reflects our expectation for adjusted EBITDA coverage of interest
to remain around 2x through 2018 and for the company to prioritize
the use of free cash flow for debt repayment, which we believe
partially mitigates currently high leverage.  We are forecasting
adjusted debt to EBITDA to be in the low- to mid-7x area in 2017
and around 7x in 2018, given our forecast for only modest EBITDA
growth and debt reduction."


SEARS HOLDINGS: Cuts Net Loss to $558 Million in Third Quarter
--------------------------------------------------------------
Sears Holdings Corporation filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q reporting a net loss
attributable to Holdings' shareholders of $558 million on $3.66
billion of total revenues for the 13 weeks ended Oct. 28, 2017,
compared to a net loss attributable to Holdings' shareholders of
$748 million on $5.02 billion of total revenues for the 13 weeks
ended oct. 29, 2016.

Adjusted EBITDA improved $100 million to $(275) million in the
third quarter of 2017, from $(375) million in the prior year third
quarter.  This marks the second consecutive quarter of at least
$100 million improvement in Adjusted EBITDA as the restructuring
actions taken in the first three quarters of 2017 have resulted in
meaningful year-over-year improvement in the Company's
performance.

For the 39 weeks ended Oct. 28, 2017, the Company reported a net
loss attributable to Holdings' shareholders of $565 million on
$12.32 billion of total revenues compared to a net loss
attributable to Holdings' shareholders of $1.61 billion on $16.08
billion of total revenues for the 39 weeks ended Oct. 29, 2016.

As of Oct. 28, 2017, Sears Holdings had $8.19 billion in total
assets, $12.20 billion in total liabilities and a total deficit of
$4 billion.

Revenues were negatively impacted by reductions in the number of
pharmacies in open Kmart stores, as well as the reduction in
consumer electronics assortments in both its Kmart and Sears
stores.  Total comparable store sales declined 15.3% during the
quarter.  Kmart comparable store sales decreased 13.0%, while Sears
comparable store sales declined 17.0%.

Edward S. Lampert, chairman and chief executive officer of
Holdings, said, "In the third quarter, we continued to narrow our
losses and delivered another quarter of Adjusted EBITDA improvement
of at least $100 million.  With the challenging retail landscape
continuing to pressure sales, the improvement in Adjusted EBITDA is
reflective of the success of the strategic priorities we outlined
earlier this year to streamline our operations, reduce inventory
and minimize operating expenses, as well as our commitment to our
goal of restoring positive Adjusted EBITDA in 2018.  Our Shop Your
Way membership program and Integrated Retail Strategy remain a key
focus for us in order to meet the needs of our members and provide
our members with the best experience possible throughout the
holiday shopping season."
As we look ahead to the fourth quarter and beyond with a focus on
continued improved performance, we intend to:

   * Continue to develop new ways to leverage the Shop Your Way
     platform in order to invest marketing dollars at the member
     level to optimize returns and improve comparable store sales
     trends and associated profitability;

   * Diversify revenue streams through third party partnerships in

     several of our businesses including Sears Home Services,
     Innovel, Kenmore and DieHard;

   * Further build on the momentum around our dedicated concept
     stores similar to the recently opened Sears Appliances and
     Mattress stores in Camp Hill, Pennsylvania and Honolulu,
     Hawaii; and

   * Maintain extreme cost discipline focus in light of continued
     headwinds across the retail sector."

Rob Riecker, chief financial officer of Holdings, said, "The
recently announced agreement with the Pension Benefit Guaranty
Corporation requires an initial upfront payment to the pension
plans which will be secured by 138 properties released to the
Company.  Once complete, the estimated contributions of $550
million to the pension plans in 2018 and 2019 is eliminated (with
the exception of a $20 million payment in July of 2018).
Additionally we will be taking action in the near term with respect
to certain upcoming debt maturities to provide the Company with
further financial flexibility and enhanced liquidity."

As a result of the Seritage and JV transactions, Adjusted EBITDA
for the third quarter of 2017 and 2016 included additional rent
expense of approximately $40 million and $48 million, respectively.
Due to the structure of the leases, the Company expects that its
cash rent obligations to Seritage and the joint venture partners
will decline, over time, as space in these stores is recaptured.
From the inception of the Seritage transaction to date, the Company
has received recapture notices on 38 properties and also exercised
its right to terminate the lease on 56 properties.

In January 2017, Fitch Ratings affirmed the Long-term Issuer
Default Ratings (IDR) on Sears Holdings and its various subsidiary
entities (collectively, Sears) at 'CC'.

As reported by the TCR on Nov. 3, 2017, S&P Global Ratings lowered
its corporate credit rating on Sears Holdings Corp. to 'CCC' from
'CCC+'.  The outlook is negative.  "The downgrade reflects our view
that addressing 2018 maturities over upcoming quarters will
determine if the company can continue its turnaround plan without
seeking a broader restructuring," S&P said.

In November 2017, Moody's Investors Service downgraded Sears
Holdings Corp.'s Corporate Family Rating to Caa3 from Caa2.
Sears' Caa3 rating reflects the company's sizable operating losses
- Domestic Adjusted EBITDA (as defined by Sears) was an estimated
loss of approximately $625 million for the LTM period ending Oct.
28, 2017.

SPANISH BROADCASTING: Asks Preferred Investors to Reveal Identities
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Spanish Broadcasting System, Inc. notified the holders of the
Company's 10 3/4% Series B Cumulative Exchangeable Redeemable
Preferred Stock that the Company had suspended all of their rights,
effective Nov. 28, 2017, as holders of the Series B Preferred
Shares, other than their right to transfer those shares to a
citizen of the United States due to the potential violation of
Section 310 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, and the
Company's Third Amended and Restated Certificate of Incorporation
resulting from the current ownership of a majority of its
outstanding Series B Preferred Shares by non-U.S. entities. The
Company took this action in order to safeguard the Company's most
important assets, its Federal Communications Commission broadcast
licenses, which would otherwise potentially be at risk if the
Company failed to take appropriate measures to remain in compliance
with the Act, according to a Form 8-K report filed with the
Securities and Exchange Commission.

Specifically, in the Company's letter to the holders of the Series
B Preferred Shares, the Company stated the following:

   * On Nov. 2, 2017, a complaint was filed against the Company in
     the Court of Chancery for the State of Delaware by certain
     holders of the Series B Preferred Shares purporting to
     represent, in the aggregate, approximately 94.16% of the
     outstanding Series B Preferred Shares.  The Company further
     noted that if the allegations set forth in the Complaint are
     correct, which it did not concede, and the collective
     ownership of the outstanding Series B Preferred Shares by
     non-U.S. entities exceeds 63 percent of the outstanding
     Series B Preferred Shares as reflected therein, then non-U.S.

     entities would own well in excess of 25 percent of the equity
     of the Company in violation of Section 310(b)(4) of the Act.
     In addition, the Company stated that the current ownership of
     the Series B Preferred Shares appears to violate the foreign
     ownership restrictions set forth in the Certificate of
     Incorporation.  Article X of the Certificate of Incorporation

     contains provisions governing foreign ownership of the
     capital stock of the Company and compliance with Section 310
     of the Act.  Those provisions of the Certificate of
     Incorporation restrict foreign ownership in the Company to
     not more than 25% of the aggregate number of shares of the
     Company's capital stock outstanding in any class or series
     entitled to vote on any matter.

   * Therefore, given the new information that was recently
     disclosed to the Company in the Complaint regarding the
     ownership of a majority of the Series B Preferred Shares by
     non-U.S. entities, the Company was required to take immediate
     remedial action in order to ensure that any violations of the
     Act and its Certificate of Incorporation resulting from such
     ownership of its Series B Preferred Shares do not adversely
     affect its FCC broadcast licenses and ability to continue its
     business operations.  Accordingly, consistent with its
     obligations and authority provided to the Company under the
     Act and by Article X of the Certificate of Incorporation, the
     Company notified holders that it was suspending all rights,
     effective immediately, of the holders of the Series B
     Preferred Shares, other than their right to transfer their
     shares to a citizen of the United States.  The Company added
     that such suspension of rights will remain in place with
     respect to each holder of its Series B Preferred Shares until
     the Company has concluded that (1) the shares of such holder
     should be treated as not owned by aliens or their
     representatives, as these terms are used under the Act, or
     (2) the ownership by the holders of the Series B Preferred
     Shares (including the ownership of any shares by non-U.S.
     entities) complies with the requirements of the Act and the
     Certificate of Incorporation.

   * The Company stated that, consistent with the requirements of
     the Certificate of Incorporation, Series B Preferred Shares
     shall hereafter be represented by "Foreign Share
     Certificates," subject to the terms and provisions contained
     in the Certificate of Incorporation that are applicable to
     those shares, unless and until the Company subsequently
     determines that such shares are held by U.S. entities and are
     properly represented by "Domestic Share Certificates" (as
     provided in the Certificate of Incorporation), if applicable.
     The Company also reserved its right to declare any transfer
     of Series B Preferred Shares made in violation of its
     Certificate of Incorporation or the Act to be ineffective and

     thereby void in accordance with the provisions of its
     Certificate of Incorporation.

   * The Company further stated that, in order for the Company to
     properly determine whether to withdraw the suspension of
     rights or to take additional remedial actions with respect to

     the Series B Preferred Shares, it is directing each of the
     holders of such shares to provide, by no later than 12 noon
     EST on Dec. 4, 2017, a certification regarding the identity,
     address, number of Series B Preferred Shares owned and
     citizenship or place of incorporation of such holder and, if
     the holder is an entity, information sufficient to
     demonstrate that the entity is not considered to be an alien
     or a representative of an alien, as these terms are used
     under the Act.

   * The Company notified holders that it reserves the right to
     request any additional information and supporting
     documentation as necessary or appropriate in order for it to
     complete its review and analysis of the current ownership of
     its Series B Preferred Shares, and to confirm compliance with

     the provisions of Article X of its Certificate of
     Incorporation and applicable law, including Section 310 of
     the Act.  The Company has also reserved all rights, in law
     and in equity, in the event of any refusal by a holder of
     Series B Preferred Shares to provide the requested
     information and certification.

Simultaneously with the letter to holders of the Series B Preferred
Shares, the Company has notified the FCC of the remedial actions
taken by it as described in that letter.

Preferred Shares is available for free at https://is.gd/Wy7PNG

                  About Spanish Broadcasting

Based in Miami, Florida, Spanish Broadcasting System, Inc.
(OTCMKTS:SBSAA) -- http://www.spanishbroadcasting.com/-- is a
Spanish-language media and entertainment company with radio and/or
television stations in the top U.S. Hispanic markets, including
Puerto Rico.  The Company's owned and operated radio stations serve
markets representing approximately 35% of the U.S. Hispanic
population, and its television operations serve markets
representing over 3.5 million Hispanic households.  The Company
produces and distributes Spanish-language content, including radio
programs, television shows, music and live entertainment through
its radio stations and its television group, MegaTV, which produces
over 70 hours of original programming per week.  MegaTV broadcasts
via its owned and operated stations in South Florida, Houston, and
Puerto Rico and through programming and/or distribution agreements
with other stations, as well as various cable and satellite
providers.

Crowe Horwath LLP, in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, issued a "going
concern" qualification on the consolidated financial statements for
the year ended Dec. 31, 2016, stating that the 12.5% Senior Secured
Notes had a maturity date of April 15, 2017.  Cash from operations
or the sale of assets was not sufficient to repay the notes and
other short term obligations when they became due, which resulted
in significant liquidity requirements on the Company that raise
substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going
concern.

As of Sept. 30, 2017, Spanish Broadcasting had $434.45 million in
total assets, $563.69 million in total liabilities and a total
stockholders' deficit of $129.23 million.  Spanish Broadcasting
reported a net loss of $16.34 million for the year ended Dec. 31,
2016, compared with a net loss of $26.95 million in 2015.

                          *     *     *

In May 2017, S&P Global Ratings withdrew its 'D' corporate credit
rating and issue-level ratings on Spanish Broadcasting System.  "We
withdrew the ratings because we were unlikely to raise them from
'D', based on SBS' ongoing plans to restructure its debt," said S&P
Global Ratings' credit analyst Scott Zari.  S&P had downgraded SBS
to 'D' on April 21, 2017, following the company's announcement that
it didn't repay its $275 million 12.5% senior secured notes that
were due April 15, 2017.

In April 2017, Moody's Investors Service downgraded SBS's corporate
family rating to 'Ca' from 'Caa2'.  SBS's 'Ca' corporate family
rating reflects an elevated expected loss rate following the
recently announced default under the company's 12.5% senior secured
notes due April 2017.


STEMTECH INTERNATIONAL: Wants Exclusivity Period Moved to Jan. 28
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Stemtech International, Inc. requests the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the Southern District of Florida for a 60-day extension of the
exclusive periods within which only the Debtor may file a plan of
reorganization and to solicit affirmative votes from impaired
classes of claims or interests, through January 28, 2018 and March
30, 2018, respectively.

Without the requested extension, the Exclusive Periods are
scheduled to expire on November 29, 2017 and January 29, 2018,
respectively, in accordance with a previous Extension Order.

Given the fact that the Debtor is a holding company for several
operating subsidiaries, the Debtor asserts that more time is needed
within which to explore alternatives, including, without
limitation, the formulation and filing of a plan of
reorganization.

The Debtor claims that, together with its representatives, it has
engaged in cost cutting measures in an effort to improve
profitability, which includes, but not limited to, closing
approximately 13 unprofitable subsidiaries, headcount reductions
and negotiations with the Debtor's landlord to modify the Debtor's
leasehold interest.

Stemtech contends that all throughout this Case, the Debtor and its
representatives have endeavored to fully cooperate with the
representatives of the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors
and Opus Bank.  They have originally participated in weekly calls
with Opus Bank and have responded to a vast array of information
requests from the Committee as well as numerous follow-up requests
for information and other questions. Said information requests have
related to the Debtor and the Debtor's direct and indirect
subsidiaries. As a result of the Parties' efforts, the Debtor avers
that there has been no formal discovery conducted in this Case.
Thus, the Parties have avoided time consuming and costly
discovery.

Additionally, the Debtor and its representatives have met with
counsel for the Committee -- and the parties' respective financial
advisors have met -- in an effort to respond to any additional
questions raised by the Committee. The Debtor has also provided the
counsel of the Committee with plan projections and estimated claims
and distributions, and subsequently, revised plan projections and
estimated distributions.

The Debtor asserts that it is not seeking to use exclusivity to
pressure creditors into accepting a plan they find unacceptable or
as a delay tactic, but rather, the Debtor legitimately requires
additional time to explore restructuring alternatives.

                    About Stemtech International

Stemtech International, Inc., is a holding company with assets
comprising intellectual property, a leasehold interest, and direct

appointed three creditors of Stemtech International, Inc., to serve

members are (1) Wilhelm Keller; (2) Greg Newman; and (3) Andrew P.
Leonard.  The Committee retained Paul Steven Singerman, Esq., at

SUNDIAL GROUP: Moody's Puts B3 CFR Under Review for Upgrade
-----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service placed the ratings for Sundial Group
Holdings LLC, including the B3 Corporate Family Rating, under
review for upgrade. This follows the announcement that the company
is being acquired by Unilever N.V. (A1 stable) for an undisclosed
amount. The acquisition is expected to close in early 2018 subject
to applicable regulatory approvals and customary closing
conditions.

Moody's will withdraw the ratings for Sundial if its debt is repaid
in connection with the acquisition. If for some reason the
transaction does not close as anticipated, Sundial's ratings will
be re-evaluated at that time.

Ratings at Sundial Group Holdings LLC placed under review for
upgrade:

B3 Corporate Family Rating;

B3-PD Probability of Default Rating;

$35 million first lien senior secured revolving credit facility due
2022 rated B3 (LGD3);

$280 million principal first lien senior secured term loan due 2024
rated B3 (LGD3); and

The outlook has been changed to rating under review.

RATINGS RATIONALE

Setting aside the potential acquisition by Unilever, Sundial's B3
Corporate Family Rating ("CFR") reflects the its high financial
leverage, small absolute size, and narrow product focus. Following
Sundial's dividend recapitalization in July, credit metrics are
very weak -- particularly for a company with Sundial's business
risk. Moody's views Sundial's recent large cash dividend at a time
of continued rapid growth to represent a very aggressive financial
policy. The rating also reflects Sundial's limited operating
history at current sales levels, an evolving business strategy,
concentration in a niche sub-segment of the skin and hair care
categories, and weak free cash flow. While Sundial's revenue growth
has been very strong in recent years, Moody's believe that this is
largely a function of the early stage of the company's lifecycle.
Moody's expects growth to slow as the company matures. Sundial's
revenues and earnings are vulnerable to changing customer
preferences and competition -- in particular from much larger,
better capitalized players in the personal care category.

The rating is supported by Sundial's strong market position in the
modest-sized but growing niche skin care and multicultural hair
care categories. The rating is also supported by an increasing
retail distribution footprint, solid knowledge of target end
markets, and a consistent pipeline of new product innovation.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Global Packaged
Goods published in January 2017.

Sundial Group Holdings, LLC, based in Amityville, NY, is a
manufacturer of natural personal care products including lotions,
washes, soaps, haircare and baby products. The company's two
primary brands include SheaMoisture and Nubian Heritage. Its
products focus on serving a multicultural demographic within the
personal care category. Sundial generates annual revenues of
roughly $240 million. The company is majority owned by the Dennis
family, with Bain Capital owning a 49% minority interest.



TERRAVIA HOLDINGS: Wants to Keep Plan Exclusivity Until Feb. 28
---------------------------------------------------------------
TerraVia Holdings, Inc. (formerly known as Solazyme, Inc.) and
certain of its subsidiaries request the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the District of Delaware for a 90-day extension of the exclusive
periods to file a chapter 11 plan through February 28, 2018, and to
solicit votes on the plan through April 30, 2018.

A hearing on the Debtors' request is set for January 8, 2018, at
1:00 p.m. Objections are required to be filed and served no later
than December 13, 2017.

Following the consummation of the sale transactions on September 26
and 28, 2017, the Debtors seek to wind down these Chapter 11 Cases
through a plan confirmation process. The Debtors assert that
closing the Sales require the focused effort of their workforce and
professionals.

On October 31, 2017, the Debtors filed the Combined Disclosure
Statement and Chapter 11 Plan of Liquidation Proposed by the
Debtors.

Since the closing date, the Debtors have devoted significant time
and effort to assisting with the transition of the assets to the
purchasers in as seamless a manner as possible. The Debtors have
also taken numerous other steps to conclude these Chapter 11 Cases,
including, but not limited, (a) establishing a bar date for filing
proofs of claim and (b) rejecting the non-residential real property
lease of their headquarters.

Most significantly, the Debtors recently obtained interim approval
from the Court of its Combined Disclosure Statement and Plan for
solicitation purposes only. The Court has scheduled a hearing to
consider confirmation of the Combined Disclosure Statement and Plan
for January 8, 2018.

The Debtors, however, require additional time to pursue
confirmation of the Combined Disclosure Statement and Plan (beyond
the 60 days currently afforded under the initial Exclusive
Solicitation Period) and to address any unforeseen delays
experienced in connection with such efforts.

The Debtors claim that the requested extensions will give them full
and fair opportunity to complete their solicitation and
confirmation process without the distraction, cost and delay of a
competing plan process.

Company had $13.07 million in total assets, $42.08 million in total
liabilities, and a total deficit of $29 million.

RBSM LLP, in New York, issued a "going concern" qualification on
the consolidated financial statements for the year ended Dec. 31,
2015, citing that the Company has incurred recurring net losses,
used cash in operating activities, and had negative working
capital, which raise substantial doubt about its ability to
continue as a going concern.

UNIQUE VENTURES: Sprit Claimants to Get $21.5MM From Campbell Land
------------------------------------------------------------------
The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors of Unique Ventures
Group, LLC, filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Western
District of Pennsylvania an amended Chapter 11 plan for the Debtor,
dated Nov. 13, 2017.

Class 2 Spirit Claims are impaired by the Plan.  Class 2 consists
of holders of the Spirit Claims relating to the Spirit Agreements.
Holders of Class 2 Claims will be paid an estimated $21.50 million
by purchaser on the Effective Date if that purchaser is Campbell
Land Co. LLC.  The payment of the Spirit Consideration to Spirit
will serve as settlement of the Spirit Claims against the Estate
and transfer to Campbell of all of Spirit's interests held in
connection with the Debtor, the Spirit Agreements, including,
without limitation, Real Property Designated for Transfer, which
amount includes estimated transactional/settlement costs associated
with the real estate transaction.  Subject to the payment of the
Spirit Consideration and transfer of the Real Property Designated
for Transfer, the Debtor will have no further obligation on account
of the Spirit Claims and neither Spirit nor Campbell will have any
further claim against the Estate.  In the event Campbell is not the
Purchaser, the Spirit Claims will be satisfied by the Purchaser
pursuant to the applicable APA and order approving that sale.

The Plan is structured around the Sale of substantially all of the
Debtor's assets, following an auction at which the Debtor's assets
will be sold, subject to higher and better offers (if the offers
are made).  The prevailing bidder, whose offer is ultimately
approved by the Court, will be referred to hereinafter as the
Purchaser.

A copy of the Amended Plan is available at:

          http://bankrupt.com/misc/pawb17-20526-750.pdf

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on Nov. 14, 2017, the
Committee filed with the Court a disclosure statement dated Oct.
25, 2017, referring to the plan of reorganization it proposed for
the Debtor.  Under that plan, holders of Class 4 General Unsecured
Claims -- estimated at $3.6 million -- would receive a ratable
share of any and all proceeds derived from the sale and excluded
assets, including, without limitation, causes of action, after
payment of all allowed claims having greater priority pursuant to
the priority provisions of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.

VANGUARD NATURAL: Court Denies Retova's Class Certification Bid
---------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Marvin Isgur of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of Texas denied Retova Resources, L.P.'s motion seeking an
order under Federal Rule of Bankruptcy Procedure 9014 directing
that Federal Rule of Bankruptcy Procedure 7023 (i.e., class
certification) is applicable to Renova's application for allowance
and payment of its administrative priority claim.  Retova also
sought class certification of a putative class consisting of oil
and gas royalty interest holders.

Retova alleged that Vanguard Operating, LLC, and Vanguard Permian,
LLC, underpaid Retova's and the proposed class Members' royalties
by deducting post-production costs from the royalty calculations in
contrivance to the royalty agreements.

Vanguard Natural Resources, LLC et al, of which Vanguard Operating
is a member, objected to Retova's motion, arguing that the Court
should not permit application of Bankruptcy Rule 7023 to this
contested matter for administrative expenses because: neither the
Bankruptcy Code nor the Debtors' chapter 11 plan permit the filing
of a class application for administrative expenses; bankruptcy
courts in Texas previously denied requests for class certification
under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 23 in similar contexts;
procedural and substantive flaws in the motion should result in
disallowance of Retova's class claim; and Retova is not an agent or
fiduciary of the putative class and is thus unable to assert a
class claim on the class' behalf.

When considering whether to apply Rule 23 to a proceeding, the
Court considers such factors as: (i) whether the class at issue was
certified pre-petition; (ii) whether the members of the putative
class received notice of the claims bar date; and (iii) whether
class certification would adversely affect the administration of
the underlying bankruptcy case.  The Court may additionally
consider the benefits and costs of class litigation to the estate.

Retova admits that it failed to obtain class certification before
the Debtors filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy relief. Factor one
weighs against applying Rule 23 to this proceeding.

The Debtors' entire creditor matrix received notice of the
provisions of the Debtors' chapter 11 plan, which included the bar
date for administrative claims. The creditors also received notice
of the effective date of the Debtors' plan, which put the putative
class members on notice of the administrative claims bar date. The
Debtors additionally provided publication notice of their chapter
11 plan to notify any creditor whose address was unknown as of the
bar date for administrative claims under the plan.  As a result,
factor two weighs against applying Rule 23 to this proceeding.

Class certification and the consequent admittance of the putative
class' administrative claim would adversely affect the
administration of the Debtors' bankruptcy case at this stage
because the administrative bar date already passed and the Plan has
been substantially consummated. Such events occurred after no
putative class member (other than Retova) filed an administrative
claim in the Debtors' bankruptcy case. Class certification and
admittance of the putative class' administrative claims would thus
resurrect claims already discharged under 11 U.S.C. section 1141
and the Debtors' chapter 11 plan. Factor three weighs against
applying Rule 23 to this proceeding

At another stage of this proceeding, allowing class litigation
might have benefitted the bankruptcy system by allowing legitimate
claimants of a debtor to obtain their rightful distributions
through the proof of claim process. Because unfiled administrative
claims are discharged, there is no benefit to the estate in
allowing the matter to proceed under Rule 23. This factor weighs
against applying Rule 23 to this proceeding.

Because each of these factors weighs against Retova's position, the
Court determines that it should not exercise its discretion under
Rule 9014 and apply Rule 23 to this contested matter.

VAUGHAN COMPANY: Court Dismisses Lankfords Due Process Suit vs DOJ
------------------------------------------------------------------
District Judge William P. Johnson granted the Defendant's motion to
dismiss the case captioned DAVID LANKFORD and LEE ANN LANKFORD,
Plaintiffs, v. UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE, Defendant, No.
1:17-cv-668WJ/GBW (D.N.M.), and sua ponte dismissed the Plaintiffs'
remaining claims.

Plaintiffs sued the Department of Justice for compensatory and
punitive damages, alleging that the DOJ denied them their due
process rights by allowing corruption or bias in the courts.
Plaintiffs also appear to ask this court to review or overturn a
summary judgment issued by the bankruptcy court, on the basis of
fraud on the court.

The Vaughan Company, Realtors filed a chapter 11 bankruptcy
petition on Feb. 22, 2010. On the basis that Vaughan Company was
operating a Ponzi scheme, the bankruptcy court entered an order
approving the appointment of Judith Wagner as the chapter 11
trustee for the debtor's bankruptcy estate.

The Plaintiffs invested in the Vaughan Company Ponzi scheme, and
were "net winners", meaning they received more money from the
scheme than they put in. On Feb. 21, 2012, the Trustee filed an
adversary proceeding, seeking the turnover of these net winnings
under 11 U.S.C. section 548 and New Mexico state law.

On May 27, 2014, U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Robert Jacobvitz entered
summary judgment against the Plaintiffs and determined that the
Trustee was entitled to turnover of a total of $67,404.39 under 11
U.S.C. section 548(a)(1)(B) and NMSA section 56-10-18(A)(2). This
amount was their "net winnings."

Plaintiffs argue that the bankruptcy court's summary judgment
should be overturned for fraud on the court because (1) the Trustee
intentionally miscalculated the net winnings in connection with the
summary judgment, (2) the bankruptcy court did not consider Ms.
Lankford's IRA losses in calculating the net winnings, (3) the
Trustee withheld or fabricated evidence, (4) the Court fabricated
documents, and (5) general bias or corruption in not ruling in
their favor.

Defendant filed a motion to dismiss under Fed. R. Civ. P. 12(b)(1),
asserting sovereign immunity. In a response, Plaintiffs alleged
that sovereign immunity is waived under the Federal Tort Claims
Act. Plaintiffs also filed a motion for permission to file a
sur-reply, along with the sur-reply. In the sur-reply, Plaintiffs
allege that sovereign immunity is waived as to due process
violations, but do not point to any explicit statutory waiver of
immunity.

The Court has considered Plaintiffs' request to file a sur-reply,
and finds it well-taken. However, Plaintiffs' suit against the DOJ
for alleged due process violations is barred by sovereign immunity.
Therefore, this Court does not have subject matter jurisdiction
over those claims. Moreover, Plaintiffs request to overturn the
bankruptcy court's summary judgment on the basis of fraud on the
court has already been considered and rejected by other courts, and
is otherwise meritless.

WALTER INVESTMENT: Files Prepackaged Chapter 11 Case
----------------------------------------------------
Walter Investment Management Corp. commenced a prepackaged chapter
11 case with a plan of reorganization where the Company commits
to:

     -- reduce its outstanding corporate debt by approximately
        $806 million through a combination of cancellation of
        debt ($531 million) and principal paydowns ($275
        million),

     -- extend the maturity of its Term Loan through June 2022,
        and

     -- enhance the Company's financial flexibility as it
        continues the ongoing transformation of its business.

The Prepackaged Plan provides for the payment in full, either upon
the Effective Date or in the ordinary course, of general unsecured
claims against the Debtor.

More specifically, the Prepackaged Plan provides for, among other
things, these terms:

   * The Prepetition Credit Agreement will be amended and restated
to extend the maturity thereunder from December 2020 to June 2022,
thereby giving the Company additional time to implement its
turnaround business plan in an effort to maximize value for all
stakeholders.  In exchange, the Company will make certain principal
payments to the Term Lenders based on an agreed amortization
schedule.  By the end of the first quarter of 2018, the principal
balance of the Term Loan is projected to be $1.1 billion.  As of
September 30, 2017, the aggregate outstanding principal balance of
the Term Loan was $1.3 billion.

   * In exchange for the cancellation of the Senior Notes, holders
of Senior Notes Claims will receive their pro rata share of (i) the
New Second Lien Notes in the face amount of $250 million, which
will be secured on a second-lien basis by the assets that will
secure the Amended and Restated Credit Agreement of the Debtor and
its affiliates that are currently guarantors under the Prepetition
Credit Agreement (i.e. the Affiliate Co-Plan Proponents), and (ii)
the Mandatorily Convertible Preferred Stock having an aggregate
liquidation preference of $100 million and which is convertible
into 73% of the total number of issued outstanding shares of New
Common Stock as of the Effective Date (subject to dilution by
shares of New Common Stock issued or issuable pursuant to the
Management Incentive Plan and by shares of New Common Stock issued
after the Effective Date, including shares of New Common Stock
issuable pursuant to the New Warrants (if issued)). As of September
30, 2017, the aggregate outstanding principal amount of the Senior
Notes was $538.7 million.

   * In addition, notwithstanding the fact that the current value
of the Company is insufficient to support a distribution to holders
of Convertible Notes Claims, the remaining portion of the value
that would have been distributable to holders of Allowed Senior
Notes Claims will instead, and with the consent of the holders of
Senior Notes Claims, be distributed to junior constituencies if the
Allowed Convertible Notes Claims Class vote to accept the
Prepackaged Plan, which has occurred.  Specifically, the New Common
Stock, which represents the remaining 27% of the reorganized equity
value of the Debtor, and the New Warrants will be equally
distributed to holders of Allowed Convertible Notes Claims and
Allowed Existing Equity Interests.

   * All DIP Claims, Warehouse and Repurchase Facility Claims,
Other Priority Claims, Priority Tax Claims, Other Secured Claims,
Revolving Loan Claims, and General Unsecured Creditors are
unimpaired by the Prepackaged Plan and will be satisfied in full in
the ordinary course of business. This includes, but is not limited
to, the claims of contract counterparties, GSEs, warehouse lenders,
and employees.  The Restructuring is expected to enhance the
Company's long-term growth prospects and to allow the Company's
management team to increase its focus on operational performance
and value creation.

The Prepackaged Plan is the product of months of robust, good-faith
negotiations between the Debtor and an informal ad hoc group of
holders of Term Loans (the "Term Lender AHG") and an informal ad
hoc group of holders of Senior Notes (the "Senior Noteholder
AHG").

                  Chapter 11 Milestones

The Restructuring Support Agreement provides for these milestones:

   Voting Record Date         November 1, 2017

   Distribution of
   Solicitation
   Packages                   November 6, 2017

   Plan Voting Deadline       November 28, 2017

   Plan Objection Deadline    December 29, 2017

   Combined Hearing           January 9, 2018

   341 Meeting/
   SOAL/SOFA Deadline         January 29, 2018

                   Prepetition Indebtedness

The Debtor's business was established in 1958 and operated as a
captive financing business of Walter Energy, Inc., originating and
purchasing residential loans and servicing these loans to maturity.
In April 2009, WIMC was spun off from Walter Energy; merged with
Hanover Capital Mortgage Holdings, Inc.; qualified as a real estate
investment trust; and began to operate as an independent, publicly
traded company.

As of the Petition Date, the Debtor has outstanding secured debt
obligations in the aggregate principal amount of approximately $1.2
billion, which amount consists of secured term loan borrowings
under the Prepetition Credit Agreement plus interest, fees and
other expenses arising thereunder.  In addition, under the
Prepetition Credit Agreement, the Debtor has $20.0 million in
aggregate commitments available under a revolving credit facility
(undrawn except with respect to issued letters of credit in the
amount of $19.5 million). The Prepetition Credit Agreement is
secured by a lien on substantially all the assets of the Debtor and
the Affiliate Co-Plan Proponents.

As of the Petition Date, the Debtor has outstanding unsecured note
obligations consisting of $538.7 million in aggregate outstanding
principal of 7.875% Senior Notes due 2021 issued pursuant to that
certain Senior Notes Indenture by and between the Debtor, the
Affiliate Co-Plan Proponents as guarantors, and Wilmington Savings
Fund Society, FSB, a national banking association, as successor
trustee, dated as of December 17, 2013.

As of the Petition Date, the Debtor has outstanding unsecured note
obligations consisting of $242.5 million in aggregate outstanding
principal of 4.50% convertible senior subordinated notes due 2019
issued pursuant to that certain Subordinated Indenture, dated as of
January 13, 2012, by and among the Debtor, as issuer, Wells Fargo
Bank, National Association, as Trustee, and a Supplemental
Indenture thereto, dated as of January 13, 2012. The Convertible
Notes are not guaranteed.

                    Road to Bankruptcy

From 2010 through 2015, the Company grew its servicing and
originations businesses both organically and through a number of
acquisitions, including the acquisitions of RMS and Security One
Lending, Inc., an indirect, wholly-owned subsidiary of the Debtor
in 2012, the acquisition of a national originations platform in
2013 from Residential Capital, LLC and significant bulk servicing
right acquisitions in 2013 and 2014.

In connection with these acquisitions and for other business
reasons, the Company incurred debt and, as a result, has been and
continues to be highly leveraged, in relation to the Company's
ability to service the debt and on a relative basis in comparison
to the Company's peers.  The Company has also historically depended
on ongoing access to warehouse, advance, and buy-out facility
markets, and the capital markets generally, to obtain financing on
commercially satisfactory terms to fund the substantial ongoing
capital needs of the Company's various businesses.  As market rates
and terms moved against the Company, the Company's liquidity
contracted and profitability was negatively impacted.

During 2014, 2015, and 2016, the Company recorded significant net
losses. During those years, despite the Company's efforts to reduce
its expenses, dispose of certain businesses, eliminate certain
activities, and improve operations, the Company was unsuccessful in
meeting key business goals and generating profits, which resulted
in a decrease in the Company's overall revenues and operations.
More recently, the Company's liquidity has become further
constrained due to pressures from lenders and other key
counterparties to certain events, including the pace of, and
uncertainty surrounding, the Company's restructuring initiative,
and restatement of the Company's financial statements for the year
ended December 31, 2016 and the quarterly periods ended June 30,
2016, September 30, 2016, and March 31, 2017.

Leading up to the commencement of the Chapter 11 Case, the Company
reengaged in discussions with certain holders of the Ad Hoc
Convertible Noteholders Group who had threatened to pursue
litigation against the Company and its officers and directors.
Among other things, the Claimants alleged causes of action that
would not be discharged under the Prepackaged Plan.  Although the
Company strenuously denies the Claimants' allegations, to avoid the
burden, delay, and uncertainty of litigation and potential
disruption to this Chapter 11 Case, the Company entered into a
settlement with the Claimants to resolve the Alleged Claims.

Pursuant to an agreement dated November 27, 2017, the Company
settled all of the Alleged Claims for $3,300,000 (inclusive of
$100,000 on account of all professional fees).  The Settlement
Amount was paid by non-Debtor, Affiliate Co-Plan Proponent, Ditech,
into escrow and will not be disbursed to the Claimants until after
the occurrence of the Effective Date.  If the Prepackaged Plan is
not confirmed or the Effective Date does not occur before March 31,
2018, the Settlement Amount will not be disbursed to the Claimants
and will be returned to the Company (less any advisor fees incurred
by the Claimants up to $100,000).

YAMANA GOLD: S&P Rates New US$300 Million Senior Unsec Notes 'BB+'
------------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings assigned its 'BB+' issue-level rating and '3'
recovery rating to Toronto-based Yamana Gold Inc.'s proposed US$300
million senior unsecured note issuance. The '3' recovery rating
indicates expectation for meaningful (50%-70%; rounded estimate
50%) recovery for its unsecured noteholders in our simulated
default scenario. S&P expects the company will use proceeds from
this offering to repay amounts drawn under its corporate credit
facility, and toward redemption of its 2018 unsecured notes as they
come due.

S&P said, "Our 'BB+' long-term corporate credit rating and stable
outlook on Yamana are unchanged following the issuance, which is
effectively neutral to the company's credit measures. The issuance
will extend Yamana's maturity profile with the repayment of
short-term debt but is likely to increase the permanence of its
debt structure for several years. The corporate credit rating
primarily reflects the company's relatively low cost gold
production and modest operating breadth, and our expectation for
its leverage to improve over the next two years. We estimate
Yamana's adjusted debt-to-EBITDA ratio will decline from relatively
high levels (3.2x for the trailing 12 months to Sept. 30, 2017)to
below 3x in 2018 and 2019 following the ramp-up of its Cerro Moro
mine in Argentina amid a corresponding period of favorable gold and
copper prices."

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.
