ALTISOURCE PORTFOLIO: S&P Affirms 'B' ICR, Outlook Stable
---------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said it affirmed its 'B' long-term issuer credit
rating on Altisource Portfolio Solutions S.A. In addition, S&P
removed the ratings from CreditWatch with negative implications,
where it placed them on May 1, 2017. The outlook is stable.

S&P said, "The rating action reflects our expectation that the
company will reach a services agreement with NRZ that will not
affect leverage. Altisource and NRZ signed a letter of intent to
enter into a services agreement that reduces the risk of Altisource
losing Ocwen-related revenues. Altisource derived 75% of its
revenue from Ocwen for 2016, and 57% of Ocwen's total unpaid
principal balance (UPB) is of loans for which the rights have been
sold to NRZ. In August 2017, Altisource reached a cooperative
brokerage agreement with NRZ through which NRZ can receive
commissions for each real estate owned property sold by Altisource
and its affiliates on behalf of NRZ but continues to be in talks to
reach a final services agreement."

Outlook

S&P said, "The stable outlook on Altisource reflects S&P Global
Ratings' view that Altisource will eventually reach a services
agreement with NRZ. We expect that Altisource will continue to
execute on its strategy to grow non-Ocwen-related revenues and that
management will continue to look for ways maintain stable leverage.
We expect that revenues will remain concentrated in products and
services that are focused on the domestic mortgage and real estate
industry, an industry that we believe is prone to cyclicality,
which will limit our assessment of Altisource's business risk over
the long term. Additionally, we expect that the firm will operate
with a debt-to-EBITDA ratio of 2.5x-3.0x during the next 12 months
from a combination of debt purchases and EBITDA stabilization."

Upside scenario

S&P could raise the rating during the next 12 months if Altisource
continues to focus maintaining stable leverage and is able to grow
non-Ocwen/NRZ-related EBITDA.

Downside scenario

S&P said, "We could lower the rating during the next 12 months if
the firm is unable to grow non-Ocwen-related revenues, resulting in
an increase in its debt-to-EBITDA ratio to above 3x. We could also
lower the rating if we expect a material change to the company's
relationship with Ocwen or NRZ, such that a large portion of the
firm's revenues are at risk."

APOLLO MEDICAL: Lakhi Sakhrani Has 5.5% Stake as of Dec. 8
----------------------------------------------------------
Lakhi Sakhrani reported in a Schedule 13D filed with the Securities
and Exchange Commission that as of Dec. 8, 2017, he beneficially
owns 1,724,211 shares of common stock of Apollo Medical Holdings,
Inc., constituting 5.57 percent of the shares outstanding.

Mr. Sakhrani's business address is 333 S. Garfield Ave., Suite H,
Alhambra, CA 91801.  His present principal occupation is physician
located at 333 S. Garfield Ave., Suite H, Alhambra, CA 91801.

On Dec. 8, 2017, a reverse merger transaction between Network
Medical Management, Inc., a California corporation and the Issuer
was consummated such that NMM became a wholly-owned subsidiary of
the Issuer.

Immediately prior to the closing of the Merger, the Reporting
Person was a shareholder of NMM.  Pursuant to the Merger, the
shares of NMM common stock previously held by Reporting Person were
converted into (i) 1,530,941 shares of common stock of the Issuer,
(ii) a warrant to purchase 48,082.18 shares of common stock of the
Issuer exercisable at any time prior to Dec. 8, 2022 at an exercise
price of $11.00 per share, (iii) a warrant to purchase 50,910.54
shares of common stock of the Issuer exercisable at any time prior
to Dec. 8, 2022 at an exercise price of $10.00 per share, (iv) cash
in lieu of fractional shares, and (v) the Reporting Person's pro
rata portion, if any, of the holdback shares of common stock of the
Issuer (such pro rata portion of the holdback shares would, without
offset, initially be equal to 170,104.50 shares of Common Stock of
the Issuer).

Immediately prior to the Closing, NMM made an in-kind distribution
on a pro rata basis to its shareholders (including the Reporting
Person) of the following warrants, which warrants were previously
held by NMM: (i) 1,111,111 Series A warrants (of which the
Reporting Person will receive 62,852.51 Series A warrants) to
purchase common stock of the Issuer, exercisable at any time prior
to Oct. 14, 2020 at an exercise price of $9.00 per share, and (ii)
555,555 Series B warrants (of which the Reporting Person will
receive 31,426.23 Series B warrants) to purchase common stock of
the Issuer, exercisable at any time prior to March 30, 2021 at an
exercise price of $10.00 per share.

Pursuant to the terms of each of the warrants, no fractional shares
will be issuable upon exercise or conversion of the Warrants, and
the number of shares to be issued shall be rounded down to the
nearest whole share.  If a fractional share interest arises upon
any exercise or conversion of the Warrants, the Issuer shall
eliminate such fractional share interest by paying the holder of
the Warrants cash in the amount computed by multiplying the
fractional share interest by the fair market value of a full share,
as determined in accordance with the terms of the Warrants.  As
such, the number and percentage of shares of Common Stock
beneficially owned by the Reporting Person excludes all fractional
shares of Common Stock issuable upon the exercise or conversion of
the Warrants.

------------------------------------------------------
The fee examiner appointed in Appvion Inc.'s Chapter 11 case seeks
approval from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of
Delaware to hire his own firm as legal counsel.

Justin Alberto proposes to employ Bayard, P.A. to, among other

issues raised by inquiries to and from the bankruptcy professionals
employed in the Debtor's case.

$315 to $470 for associates and $240 to $295 for

ASHTON WOODS: S&P Affirms 'B-' Corp. Credit Rating, Outlook Stable
------------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings affirmed its corporate credit rating on Ashton
Woods USA LLC at 'B-'. The outlook is stable.

S&P said, "In addition, we affirmed our issue-level rating on the
company's senior unsecured credit facilities at 'B-'. We also
revised our recovery rating on the debt to '3' from '4'. The '3'
recovery rating indicates our expectation of meaningful (50%-70%;
rounded estimate: 50%) recovery in the event of a payment default.

"Our affirmation of the 'B-' corporate credit rating on Ashton
Woods and our continued stable outlook incorporates our view that
Ashton Woods will achieve revenue growth between 7% and 9% in
fiscal 2018. We expect the company to have an incremental shift in
product mix toward entry-level communities through its Starlight
product, a new entry-level brand. We expect that these entry-level
communities will bring down the average selling price over time but
will result in increased volumes."

The stable outlook reflects S&P Global Ratings' expectation for
improving revenues from its recently launched Starlight product in
several markets. S&P said, "Our outlook incorporates an expectation
for lower average selling price (ASP) due to the reduced price
point of the Starlight product and an increased number of home
closings in 2018. We expect the company's adjusted debt leverage to
decrease between 5x and 5.5x as of fiscal year-end 2018, with
EBITDA interest coverage above 2x and for the company to maintain
adequate liquidity."


ASSOCIATED ASPHALT: S&P Lowers CCR to 'B', Outlook Stable
---------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said it lowered its corporate credit rating and
issue-level ratings on Associated Asphalt Partners LLC to 'B' from
'B+'. The outlook is stable.

S&P said, "At the same time, we lowered our rating on the company's
senior secured term loan due 2024 to 'B' from 'B+'. The recovery
rating on the company's senior secured term loan due 2024 remains a
'3' , indicating our view that lenders can expect meaningful
(50%-70%; rounded estimate: 50%) recovery if a payment default
occurs.

"The downgrade reflects forecast leverage exceeding our previous
expectations due to increased competition in Associated's markets.
Since the acquisition of Axeon Marketing in March 2017, Associated
has faced margin pressure due to competitors lowering prices in
order to draw on their inventories, increased inventory costs from
refiners, and aggressive pricing from competitors attempting gain
Axeon market share. Associated was successfully able to maintain
mostly flat volumes in 2017 but faced a significant deterioration
in margin, leading to EBITDA well below our previous expectations.
In addition, the company's debt balance is higher than previously
forecast as less cash flow is projected available for debt
repayment via the cash flow sweep. We expect S&P Global Ratings'
adjusted debt to EBITDA to be above 10x in 2017. We do forecast a
return to a more normal competitive environment in 2018, which will
reduce leverage to approximately 6x. We have revised Associated's
financial risk to highly leveraged, reflecting sustained leverage
above 5x and majority ownership by an affiliate of Arclight Capital
Partners, which we assess to be a financial sponsor.

"The stable outlook reflects our expectation that Associated
Asphalt will face a more normal competitive environment in 2018,
resulting in leverage approaching 6x, excluding peak working
capital borrowings. In addition, we expect the company to maintain
adequate liquidity.

"We could lower the ratings if we viewed liquidity as less than
adequate or if we expected adjusted debt to EBITDA to be sustained
above 6x. This could occur due to a prolonged period of intense
competition, which pressures margins and volumes.

"We view an upgrade unlikely in the near term. However, we could
consider a positive rating action if the company's competitive
landscape improves and debt is reduced materially."

"going concern" qualification on the consolidated financial
statements for the year ended Dec. 31, 2016, noting that Grote
Molen, Inc., has incurred losses and negative cash flows from
operations.  These factors raise substantial doubt about the
ability of the Company to continue as a going concern.


BOYD GAMING: Moody's Alters Outlook to Stable & Affirms B2 CFR
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service revised Boyd Gaming Corporation's (Boyd)
rating outlook to stable from positive. The company's B2 Corporate
Family Rating, B2-PD Probability of Default Rating, Ba3 senior
secured bank loan rating, and B3 rating on the company's senior
unsecured notes were affirmed. Boyd has an SGL-2 Speculative Grade
Liquidity rating.

"In light of Boyd's recent announcements that it agreed to buy five
regional casino properties for total consideration of about $856
million, Moody's is of the view that Boyd will no longer be able to
achieve and maintain debt/EBITDA at/below the 5.25 times upgrade
target within a time frame necessary to achieve a higher rating,"
stated Keith Foley a senior Vice President at Moody's.

Boyd's debt/EBITDA on a Moody's adjusted basis for the latest
12-month period ended September 30, 2017 was about 5.6 times.
Moody's estimated pro forma debt/EBITDA based on the acquisition
multiples paid by Boyd for the five properties is about 5.8 times.

The affirmation of Boyd's B2 Corporate Family Rating considers
that, despite the high pro forma leverage, it is still comfortably
below the 6.0 times debt/EBITDA downward rating trigger.
Additionally, Moody's expects leverage will begin to drop modestly
during the next 12-18 month period as Boyd applies it's free cash
flow towards debt reduction.

Boyd recently entered into a definitive agreement with Penn
National Gaming, Inc. (Penn, Ba3 on review for downgrade) to
acquire Ameristar St. Charles and Ameristar Kansas City located in
Missouri, Belterra Casino Resort located in Indiana, and Belterra
Park in located in Ohio. The acquisition of these assets is in
connection with Penn's proposed acquisition of Pinnacle
Entertainment, Inc.(Ba3 on review for downgrade). Boyd will pay
total cash consideration of $575 million to acquire the four
assets, a multiple of 6.25 times projected EBITDA before assumed
synergies. This transaction is expected to be financed through cash
flow from operations and availability under the credit facility and
close by second half of 2018.

In an unrelated transaction, Boyd also agreed to acquire Valley
Forge Casino Resort from Valley Forge Convention Center Partners LP
for about $281 million in cash. Boyd plans to fund the acquisition
with incremental debt financing. The purchase price represents an
implied multiple of 7 times EBITDA, including the company's assumed
cost synergies and incremental growth from the property's impending
slot floor expansion, and before any operational improvements. This
transaction is expected to close by third quarter of 2018.

"From a strategic point of view, however, there is a credit
positive element to the these acquisitions in that they are
consistent with Boyd's geographic diversification plans, something
Moody's believes will be beneficial to the company over the
longer-term, both in terms of the company's overall credit profile,
competitive position, and possibly ratings at some point in the
future," added Foley.

Outlook Actions:

Issuer: Boyd Gaming Corporation

-- Outlook, Changed To Stable From Positive

Affirmations:

Issuer: Boyd Gaming Corporation

-- Probability of Default Rating, Affirmed B2-PD

-- Corporate Family Rating, Affirmed B2

-- Senior Secured Bank Credit Facility, Affirmed Ba3(LGD2)

-- Senior Unsecured Regular Bond/Debenture, Affirmed B3(LGD5)

RATINGS RATIONALE

Boyd's credit profile reflects the company's significant size and
geographic diversification, both on a current and a pro forma
basis. In terms revenue and number of casino assets, Boyd is
currently one of the three largest regional gaming companies with
over $2.3 billion of net revenue derived from 24 casino properties
across 14 distinct gaming markets. Positive credit consideration is
also provided by Moody's stable Industry Sector Outlook (ISO) for
the US gaming industry.

Key credit concerns include Boyd's significant leverage. Despite
the fact that the company has been reducing its leverage,
debt/EBITDA (Moody's adjusted basis) is still high, at about 5.6
times for the latest 12-month period ended September 30, 2017, and
about 5.8 times on a pro forma basis. While there have been some
recent improvements in overall gaming demand throughout the US,
Boyd and other U.S. regional gaming operators face casino
oversupply conditions and the resulting cannibalization of customer
dollars that is occurring throughout many US gaming markets.

Boyd is an owner and operator of 24 gaming entertainment properties
located in Nevada, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana and
Mississippi.

Boyd's rating could be upgraded if it appears the company will be
able to achieve andmaintain debt/EBITDA below 5.25 times. An
upgrade would also require a continuation of stable gaming revenue
trends along with the maintenance of a good liquidity profile. A
downgrade could occur if Boyd's debt/EBITDA rises to and stays
at/or above 6.0 times for any reason.

CHENIERE CORPUS: S&P Affirms 'BB-' Corporate Credit Rating
----------------------------------------------------------
U.S.-based project Cheniere Corpus Christi Holdings LLC (CCH) is
building, through its wholly owned subsidiary, Corpus Christi
Liquefaction LLC (CCLIQ), a three-train project that will convert
natural gas to liquefied natural gas (LNG), and Cheniere Corpus
Christi Pipeline L.P., a 23-mile 48-inch diameter natural gas
pipeline, both on the U.S. Gulf Coast. Completion of the first two
trains is expected in 2019; the third train has not yet reached
Final Investment Decision (FID) and is not factored into this
rating. CCH is wholly owned by Cheniere Energy Inc. (CEI)
(BB-/Stable/--).

CCLIQ will obtain natural gas from numerous supplies in most major
U.S. gas basins, convert it to LNG, and sell it to counterparties
under take-or-pay style, fixed-price long-term sale and purchase
agreements (SPAs) that essentially eliminate market risk.

On Dec. 18, 2017, CEI announced that CCLIQ had signed an
engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract with
Bechtel Oil, Gas & Chemicals, Inc. (Bechtel) for the construction
of train 3. Under the terms of this agreement, construction may
proceed now on train 3 without a change order until July 5, 2018.
The decision to move to a FID on train 3 will be contingent upon
execution of satisfactory SPAs for the LNG capacity of the new
train.

S&P Global Ratings said it affirmed its 'BB-' rating on Cheniere
Corpus Christi Holdings LLC. The recovery rating is '2'. The rating
outlook is stable.

The '2' recovery rating indicates S&P's expectation for substantial
(70%-90%; rounded estimate: 80%) recovery in the event of a
default.

Before accounting for financial counterparty risk, the construction
phase stand-alone credit profile (SACP) is 'bbb-', reflecting a
strong technology and construction contracting and funding package
to achieve completion to performance targets within schedule and
budget. However, parent CEI's remaining unsupported equity
contribution amount during the construction phase for trains 1 and
2 as of the end of November is $825 million and so our final
construction phase SACP is constrained by our corporate credit
rating of 'BB-' on CEI. In March 2017, CEI closed a $750 million
revolving facility that backstops its obligations under the equity
contribution agreement between CEI and CCH.

The operations phase SACP is 'bbb-'. The operations phase SACP
reflects 20-year SPAs that provide CCLIQ a fixed price for LNG,
including a fee for natural gas feedstocks equal to the cost of gas
plus 15%, expectations of good operations and maintenance (O&M),
and a robust natural gas procurement regime that minimizes fuel
supply risk. The SPAs are considered irreplaceable because we think
CCLIQ would not be able to easily replace long-term offtakers at
similar contractual terms in current market conditions;
specifically, we expect the price and contract duration would be
difficult to replicate. Therefore, the rating could be capped by
the lowest rated offtaker, currently PT Pertamina Persero
(BBB-/Stable).

S&P's stable outlook assesses the likely stable nature of the
rating over the next 18-24 months given ongoing construction
activities that are within its schedule and budget expectations and
our stable rating outlook on CEI. The stable outlook on CEI
reflects predictable cash flow from its Sabine Pass Liquefaction
project, which has four operational trains and a fifth under
construction that is progressing in line with our budget and
schedule expectations.

Since the rating on CCH's debt is capped by the corporate credit
rating on CEI, a negative outlook on or downgrade of CEI would
result in a similar rating action on CCH's debt. At this time, S&P
thinks a deterioration of the rating on CEI over the outlook period
is unlikely since four trains are now fully operational at the
Sabine Pass Liquefaction project.

Aside from an adverse movement in S&P's rating on CEI, a downgrade
would require that construction phase SACP falls to 'b+', which is
somewhat less likely. Factors that would result in such a decline
would be major delays for completion or major cost overruns such
that available funding does not cover its downside case cost
profile by a substantial margin. With the potential advent of
construction of train 3, there is some additional construction
risk, but the company has managed all of its construction projects
well to date.

S&P said, "Over the outlook horizon, the sole factor that would
result in an upgrade would be if we raised our rating on CEI since
it caps the issue-level rating on CCH's debt. At this time, we
think the chance of an improvement in its rating on CEI over the
outlook period is low, but as cash flow ramps up from SPLIQ, the
financial profile of CEI does improve over time."


CHOWDER GAS: Needs Permission to Access Cash Collateral
-------------------------------------------------------
Chowder Gas and Storage Facility LLC asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
for the Northern District of Ohio for authority to use cash
collateral.

The Debtor is holding company for Lake Shore Gas Storage, Inc. and
therefore its expenses are few. The Debtor needs to continue to
operate to act as a Debtor-in- Possession and ultimately to
reorganize.

The Debtor proposes to use cash collateral for the care,
maintenance and preservation of its assets, as well as for payment
of necessary business expenses. The Debtor assured the Court that
it will not use cash collateral to pay pre-petition obligations,
except only when specifically authorized by law or court order.

As of the petition date, the Debtor was indebted to Parkview
Federal Savings and Loan now First National Bank of Pennsylvania in
the approximate amount of $10,000,000. Pursuant to several loan
obligations, it appears that the Debtor may have granted to First
National Bank a security interest all of its assets. As such, the
Debtor believes that First National Bank will assert that it has a
perfected security interests in the collateral, which enjoy the
first level of priority.

The Debtor believes that the proceeds from the collateral may
constitute the cash collateral of First National Bank. Accordingly,
the Debtor proposes to allow floating liens on the post-petition
collateral in the same amount and level as First National Bank held
prepetition and maintain the same level of collateral as
prepetition.

The Debtor believes that the proposed utilization of cash
collateral will not, in any event, impair First National Bank's
position and that the interests of First National Bank will be
adequately protected.

CORE SUPPLEMENT: Files Second Amended First Day Motion
------------------------------------------------------
Core Supplement Technology, Inc., filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the Southern District of California a second amended
first day motion, seeking authority to use cash collateral, as well
as its inventory pursuant to the Bankruptcy Code.

On Oct. 12, 2017, Core Supplement asked the court for interim and
final orders for the following: (a) authority to use cash
collateral pursuant to the Bankruptcy Code; (b) authority to use
inventory pursuant to the Bankruptcy Code; (c) approving the form
of adequate protection provided to the debtors secured lenders
pursuant to the Bankruptcy Code; and (d) scheduling a final hearing
on the Motion to consider entry of final cash collateral order.

On October 26, 2017, counsel for the U.S. Trustee filed a Statement
of Position opposing the First Day Motion, stating the following
concerns: (1) the lack of clarity as to the payment of prepetition
wage claims of non-insider employees; (2) payment of insider
compensation without proper application pursuant to LBR 4002-2(c);
(3) adequate protection through provision of replacement liens; (4)
the possible improvement of Bank of America's prepetition position
in post-petition inventory and accounts receivable in violation of
the code.

Subsequent to filing its motion for use of cash collateral, the
Debtor and Bank of America reached an agreement for the interim use
of cash collateral, inventory, and accounts receivable, which was
memorialized in the form of a Cash Collateral Stipulation which was
filed with the Court on Oct. 27, 2017.

However, on Oct. 31, 2017 counsel for the U.S. Trustee filed his
statement of position in opposition to the stipulation, raising
these concerns: (1) lack of proper notice regarding the terms of
the stipulation; (2) the attempt in the stipulation to bind all
parties to the validity perfection and amount of the various Bank
of America Security Interests; (3) the super priority status of
secured lender granted by the stipulation; (4) lack of a carve out
for administrative expenses; (5) lack of budgeting for payment of
trustee fees.

Consequently, to give the Debtor and Bank of America time to
attempt to address the Trustee's concerns over the Stipulation, the
Debtor, Bank of America and US Trustee stipulated to a continuance
of the November 8 hearing to November 29, 2017. Consequently, at
the November 29 hearing, the Court continued the hearing on the
First Day Motion for Use of Cash Collateral to December 20.

Because counsels for Bank of America and the Debtor have been
unable agree on the terms of a Stipulation regarding the use cash
collateral, the Debtor submits its Second Amendment to First Day
Motion, asking the Court for:

     (a) Authority to use cash collateral pursuant to Sections 361
and 363(c)(B)(2) of the code for the expenses detailed in the
Budget, plus a sum sufficient to pay Chapter 11 Quarterly Trustee
Fees. The Budget provides total estimated monthly expenses of
approximately $433,633;

     (b) Approval of the adequate protection provided to Bank of
America in the form of continued timely payment of amounts due
pursuant to the terms and conditions of:

         (i) Bank of America's Line of Credit, monthly payment of
$5,837;

        (ii) Bank of America's Equipment Lease/Loan, monthly
payment $2,664; and

       (iii) Bank of America's Equipment Lease/Loan 002, monthly
payment $3,792.

     (c) Authority a variance of 25% in the budget; and

     (d) Approval of a carve out for 11 USC Section 507(a)(2)
priority administrative claims.

Bank of America would also be entitled to replacement lien in
postpetition assets up to its prepetition secured position in cash
collateral of $158,335 to the extent such position is deemed valid
and enforceable and only to the extent that the Debtor's use of
cash collateral decreased Bank of America's cash security.

As to the U.S. Trustee's concern on the possible unauthorized
payment of insider compensation, the Debtor admits that no Rule
4002 motion has been filed to date. The Debtor contends that the
motion has not been filed because, in spite of careful review of
records and accounts, several creditors were missed in the initial
filing and several creditors had moved and the Debtor did not have
current addresses. Since rule 4002 requires notice to all
creditors, and not all creditors were included in the petition, an
amendment is necessary before the motion can be filed.

The Debtor asserts, however, that Joe O'Dea has been paid his
normal salary of approximately $6,200 per month while he has been
operating the business.

CORRECT CARE: Moody's Affirms Caa2 CFR & Revises Outlook to Pos.
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service affirmed the ratings of Correct Care
Solutions Group Holdings, LLC ("CCS"), including the Caa2 Corporate
Family Rating. Additionally, Moody's changed the rating outlook to
positive from negative.

The positive outlook reflects the company's improving earnings,
liquidity and cash flow. CCS has opportunities to realize material
cost savings over the next year, as well as earnings from recent
contract wins, which, if realized, could lead to a ratings upgrade.
The affirmation of the Caa2 CFR reflects CCS' short track-record of
operational improvement, financial leverage that remains very high
at 8.8 times as of September 30, 2017 and liquidity that continues
to be pressured. Free cash flow has recently turned positive, but
the largely drawn revolver expires in July 2019.

The following ratings of Correct Care Solutions Group Holdings,
LLC's were affirmed:

- Corporate Family Rating at Caa2

- Probability of Default Rating at Caa2-PD

- Senior secured first lien revolving credit facility at Caa1
   (LGD3)

- Senior secured first lien term loan at Caa1 (LGD3)

- Senior secured second lien term loan at Caa3 (LGD 5)

The outlook is positive.

RATINGS RATIONALE

CCS' Caa2 CFR reflects the company's very high financial leverage
and significant business risks associated with operating within the
challenging correctional healthcare segment. The company has thin
profit margins which can be negatively impacted by rising pharmacy
costs and offsite hospital expenses. Furthermore, while liquidity
has improved, Moody's expects free cash flow to remain modest and
the revolver largely drawn. However, the rating is supported by
CCS's solid scale and market presence, good diversity across
customers and geographies, and strong market position in the more
attractive jails segment (as opposed to state or federal prisons).
The business is also characterized by minimal bad debt expense and
modest capital investment needs.

The positive outlook reflects Moody's view that CCS' credit metrics
and liquidity profile will continue to improve through earnings
growth and debt repayment.

The ratings could be upgraded if recent trends in profitability and
cash flow growth continue and credit metrics materially improve.
The ability to strengthen liquidity by extending the revolver
expiration or repaying additional revolver borrowings could also
lead to an upgrade.

The ratings could be downgraded if the sustainability of the
capital structure becomes less certain, the revolver becomes
current or liquidity materially deteriorates.

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

CCS provides medical, dental, and behavioral health services to
patients in correctional facilities. The company is owned by Audax
Private Equity, Frazier Healthcare, and affiliates of GTCR. The
company has $1.2 billion in revenue.

DETROIT, MI: S&P Raises Issuer Credit Rating to 'B+'
----------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings has raised its issuer credit rating (ICR) on the
City of Detroit, Mich., by one notch to 'B+' from 'B'. The outlook
is stable.   

"The upgrade reflects our view of the positive momentum the city is
building with regard to stabilizing its operations and being better
prepared to address future significant increases in pension
contributions," said S&P Global Ratings credit analyst John Sauter.


Through significant reductions in annual debt service costs,
operational savings, and more effective management, Detroit is
taking steps toward rightsizing its budget. It is now in a position
to build reserves and liquidity while also setting aside an
increasing annual amount of revenues to help absorb future
increasing pension costs. All of these changes can be traced, at
least in part, to the 2013 bankruptcy and subsequent Plan of
Adjustment, notably debt relief and restructuring, reduced pension
and other postemployment benefits, and oversight from the Financial
Review Commission (FRC). We believe the city's financial position
is now more transparent compared with recent years, as is Detroit's
long-term financial strategy, which relies on fairly conservative
growth assumptions. We also believe that the city has a stronger
capacity to service its debt obligations than in years past.

The rating remains constrained, however, by what we consider to be
an ongoing structural imbalance, as well as our hesitation
regarding Detroit's willingness to support general obligation (GO)
debt obligations, as demonstrated in the recent bankruptcy. Both of
these factors continue to result in a management score of weak.  
Other rating factors supporting the ICR include our opinion of
Detroit's:

-- Very weak economy, marked by very low incomes and property
wealth, declining population, and above-average unemployment,
despite the city's position at the center of a broad and diverse
metropolitan statistical area;

-- Weak management, driven by an ongoing structural imbalance and
recent unwillingness to support GO debt obligations, but not
without standard financial policies and practices under our
Financial Management Assessment methodology;

-- Weak budgetary performance, with operating surpluses that are
likely to thin out and do not yet reflect the true operating
environment that will exist when pension contributions increase to
actuarially determined levels;

-- Adequate budgetary flexibility; Strong liquidity; Very weak
debt and contingent liability position; and

-- Strong institutional framework score.

S&P said, "The stable outlook reflects our view of the city's
recently steadied and significantly built-up reserve and liquidity
position that, combined with current estimates that show revenues
exceeding annual expenditure requirements, has led to improved
capacity to meet both operating needs and debt obligations. Rating
stability also lies in the city's outlining of a long-term strategy
to pre-fund and phase-in increasing pension contributions, while
maintaining balanced annual operating results and very strong
reserves. Although a structural imbalance persists, in our view,
Detroit's current budget position affords the city some cushion
against near-term revenue volatility or other unexpected events.
This cushion will decrease, however, as pension contributions and
debt service costs grow and fiscal 2024 nears.

"We could consider raising the rating if the city maintains its
current reserve and liquidity position, while also continuing to
balance annual operating results inclusive of incremental deposits
to its pension reserves at a rate we believe will adequately
position it to assume the future increasing costs. Given that the
plan is still in infancy, rating improvement is likely contingent
on a demonstrated commitment and progress being made, especially in
the event the FRC scales back its oversight. Rating improvement is
also contingent on economic factors not deteriorating, and
management's commitment to complying with provisions of the Home
Rule City Act.  

"If the city veers from its current budget progress or becomes less
vigilant in budget and operational oversight, we could take a
negative action. In addition, should pressures arise, expected or
unexpected, to which the city does not appropriately respond, we
could lower the rating. Further declines in economic measures could
also pressure the rating."

                About Diffusion Pharmaceuticals

Diffusion Pharmaceuticals Inc. -- http://www.diffusionpharma.com/
-- is a clinical-stage biotechnology company focused on extending
the life expectancy of cancer patients by improving the
effectiveness of current standard-of-care treatments including
radiation therapy and chemotherapy. Diffusion is developing its
lead product candidate, trans sodium crocetinate, for use in the
many cancers where tumor hypoxia (oxygen deprivation) is known to
diminish the effectiveness of SOC treatments.  TSC targets the
cancer's hypoxic micro-environment, re-oxygenating
treatment-resistant tissue and making the cancer cells more
vulnerable to the therapeutic effects of SOC treatments without the
apparent occurrence of any serious side effects.

Diffusion reported a net loss of $18.03 million for the year ended
Dec. 31, 2016, compared to a net loss of $6.71 million for the year
ended Dec. 31, 2015.  As of Sept. 30, 2017, the Company had $28.32
million in total assets, $21.97 million in total liabilities and
$6.35 million in total stockholders' equity.

KPMG LLP, in McLean, Virginia, 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, has limited resources available to fund
current research and development activities, and will require
substantial additional financing to continue to fund its research
and development activities.  These conditions raise substantial
doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern.

The sale is free and clear of any and all Interests in accordance

ENCORE PROPERTY: Chapter 11 Petition Legally Null, Court Rules
--------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Paul R. Warren of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Western
District of New York dismissed Encore Property Management of
Western New York, LLC's chapter 11 petition sua sponte and ab
initio.

On Dec. 15, 2017, Encore filed a petition under Chapter 11 of the
Bankruptcy Code on its own behalf, without an attorney. The
petition was signed and filed by Jason G. Palmer, as trustee of a
family trust. Mr. Palmer is not an attorney licensed to practice
law.

A corporation cannot commence or appear in a proceeding pro se; it
must appear through its attorney or not at all. Here, Encore filed
its Chapter 11 petition without an attorney, thus the petition is a
legal nullity. To mitigate the potential prejudice to creditors,
the Court acts both sua sponte and quickly in dismissing the
petition ab initio.

A copy of Judge Warren's Decision and Order dated Dec. 15, 2017 is
available at:

     http://bankrupt.com/misc/nywb2-17-21325-3.pdf

The bankruptcy case is in re: Encore Property Management of Western
New York, LLC, Case No. 17-21325-PRW (Bankr. W.D.N.Y.).


EXCO RESOURCES: S&P Lowers Corp. Credit Rating to 'D'
-----------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings lowered its corporate credit rating on EXCO
Resources Inc. to 'D' from 'CCC-'.

S&P said, "At the same time, we lowered the issue-level rating on
the 1.5-lien secured notes to 'D' from 'CCC+', the recovery rating
remains '1' indicating our expectation for very high (90%-100%;
rounded estimate: 95%) recovery in the event of default.

"Furthermore, we lowered our issue-level rating on the company's
revolving credit facility to 'D' from 'CCC+'. The recovery rating
remains '1' indicating our expectation of very high (90%-100%,
rounded estimate: 95%) recovery in the event of default.

"We also lowered the issue-level rating on the 1.75-lien secured
notes to 'D' from 'CCC-'. The recovery rating remains '4'
indicating our expectation of average (30%-50%; rounded estimate:
30%) recovery in the event of default.  

"Additionally, we lowered the issue-level rating on the company's
unsecured debt and remaining second lien secured debt to 'D' from
'C'. The recovery rating remains a '6' indicating our expectation
for negligible (0%-10%; Rounded estimate: 0%) recovery in the event
of default.

"The downgrade reflects the failure by EXCO to meet interest and
covenant requirements on its outstanding debt. Although the company
has entered into a forbearance agreement and certain holders of the
company's debt have opted not to exercise their rights through Jan.
15, 2017, we believe general default and possible bankruptcy to be
the most likely outcome."

FREDDIE MAC: Amends Senior Preferred Stock Certificate
------------------------------------------------------
Freddie Mac, formally known as the Federal Home Loan Mortgage
Corporation, acting through the Federal Housing Finance Agency as
its Conservator, and the U.S. Department of the Treasury entered
into a letter agreement on Dec. 21, 2017, to amend the Amended and
Restated Certificate of Creation, Designation, Powers, Preferences,
Rights, Privileges, Qualifications, Limitations, Restrictions,
Terms and Conditions of Variable Liquidation Preference Senior
Preferred Stock (Par Value $1.00 Per Share) dated Sept. 27, 2012.
A copy of the Letter Agreement is available for free at
https://is.gd/cGjjfI

The principal changes pursuant to the Letter Agreement are
summarized below:

   * For the Dividend Period from Oct. 1, 2017 through and
     including Dec. 31, 2017, the dividend otherwise payable to
     Treasury will be reduced by $2.4 billion.  Consequently, upon
     the Conservator, acting as successor to the rights, titles,
     powers and privileges of the Board of Directors, declaring a
     Senior Preferred Stock dividend for this Dividend Period,
     Freddie Mac will pay a dividend to Treasury of approximately
     $2.25 billion by Dec. 31, 2017.

   * For each Dividend Period from Jan. 1, 2018 and thereafter,
     the Applicable Capital Reserve Amount used in determining the
     dividend payable to Treasury will be $3.0 billion, rather
     than zero as previously provided.

   * If, for any Dividend Period from Jan. 1, 2018 and
     thereafter, a dividend that would otherwise be payable is not
     declared and paid, or a dividend is declared and paid in an
     amount less than the amount that would otherwise be payable,
     the Applicable Capital Reserve Amount will thereafter be
     zero.

   * The Liquidation Preference of the Senior Preferred Stock will

     be increased by $3.0 billion, to approximately $75.3 billion,

     on Dec. 31, 2017.

As a result of Freddie Mac's previous issuance to Treasury of a
warrant to purchase shares of its common stock equal to 79.9% of
the total number of shares of its common stock outstanding, on a
fully diluted basis, Freddie Mac is deemed a related party to the
U.S. government.

                         Other Events

On Dec. 20, 2017, Congress passed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.  This
bill includes, among other things, a reduction of the U.S.
corporate tax rate from 35% to 21%.  Because of this reduction in
the corporate tax rate, Freddie Mac is required to measure its net
deferred tax asset using the new rate in the period in which the
bill containing the rate change is signed by the President and
enacted into law.  This will result in an estimated one-time charge
through the tax provision of approximately $5.3 billion in that
period.  This charge will likely result in Freddie Mac being
required to draw from Treasury under the Senior Preferred Stock
Purchase Agreement at the end of the next subsequent period.

                      About Freddie Mac

Headquartered in McLean, Virginia, Freddie Mac makes home possible
for millions of families and individuals by providing mortgage
capital to lenders.  Since its creation by Congress in 1970, the
company has made housing more accessible and affordable for
homebuyers and renters in communities nationwide.  Freddie Mac is
building a housing finance system for homebuyers, renters, lenders
and taxpayers.  Learn more at FreddieMac.com, Twitter @FreddieMac
and Freddie Mac's blog FreddieMac.com/blog.

During the time of the subprime mortgage crisis, on Sept. 6, 2008,
Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were placed into conservatorship by the
U.S. Treasury.  The Treasury committed to invest up to $200 billion
in preferred stock and extend credit through 2009 to keep the GSEs
solvent and operating.  Both GSEs are still operating under the
conservatorship of the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA).

In exchange for increased future support and capital investments of
up to $200 billion in each GSE, each GSE agreed to issue to the
Treasury (i) $1 billion of senior preferred stock, with a 10%
coupon, without cost to the Treasury and (ii) common stock warrants
representing an ownership stake of 79.9%, at an exercise price of
one-thousandth of a U.S. cent ($0.00001) per share, and with a
warrant duration of 20 years.


FREDDIE MAC: FHFA Releases 2018 Conservatorship Scorecard
---------------------------------------------------------
The Federal Housing Finance Agency released the 2018
conservatorship scorecard, which establishes corporate performance
objectives for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, including the relative
weighting of each.

A principal element of 2018 compensation for Freddie Mac's officers
identified as "executive officers" in its Annual Report on Form
10-K for the year ended Dec. 31, 2016, other than its Chief
Executive Officer, will be deferred salary, a portion of which will
be subject to reduction, or "at-risk," based on performance.  The
Company expects that one half of the 2018 at-risk deferred salary
for our executives will be subject to reduction based on the
company's performance against the 2018 conservatorship scorecard
and additional objectives FHFA may establish.  FHFA will have the
primary role in determining whether Fannie Mae has achieved the
objectives, with input from management and our Board of Directors.

2018 Conservatorship Scorecard (Corporate Performance Objectives)

For all Scorecard items, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (the
Enterprises) and Common Securitization Solutions will be assessed
based on the following criteria:

Assessment Criteria

  * The extent to which each Enterprise conducts initiatives in a
    safe and sound manner consistent with FHFA's expectations for
    all activities;

  * The extent to which the outcomes of each Enterprise's
    activities support a competitive and resilient secondary
    mortgage market to support homeowners and renters;

  * The extent to which each Enterprise conducts initiatives with
    consideration for diversity and inclusion consistent with
    FHFA's expectations for all activities;

  * Cooperation and collaboration with FHFA, each other, the
    industry, and other stakeholders; and

  * The quality, thoroughness, creativity, effectiveness, and
    timeliness of their work products.

GREEN ISLAND: Moody's Affirms Ba1 Revenue Bonds; Outlook Negative
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has affirmed the Ba1 rating on Green
Island Power Authority, NY's (GIPA or the authority) $13.8 million
outstanding revenue bonds. The outlook remains negative.

RATINGS RATIONALE

Green Island Power Authority (GIPA) successfully executed its first
full year under new service agreements with Albany Engineering Corp
(AEC) resulting in improved operating performance and credit
metrics, however volatile cash flows and lack of track record under
the new structure highlight uncertainty. In 2016 GIPA entered into
a revenue sharing lease agreement with AEC to operate and maintain
the hydroelectric facility in exchange for a portion of debt
service payments. Separately during the same period, GIPA entered
into a contract-for-differences agreement with AEC hedging against
wholesale power prices for supplemental power purchased from the
New York System Independent Operator (NYISO). Despite improved debt
service coverage metrics in fiscal 2017, the narrow margin compared
to debt service requirements according to the bond indenture
reflect the small margin for error under the new financial
structure. In addition, GIPA is constrained by its rate regulation
framework and counterparty risk exposure of the financial
structure.

RATING OUTLOOK

The negative outlook reflects the narrow financial margin under the
new financial structure and weak liquidity position which constrain
GIPA's ability to absorb shortfalls in financial performance.

FACTORS THAT COULD LEAD TO AN UPGRADE

- Rating is unlikely to move up due to the negative outlook, but
   could stabilize if the new contracted structure can generate a
   DSCR of greater than 1.0 times on a sustained basis R

- Liquidity can remain above 150 days cash on hand for a
   sustained period

FACTORS THAT COULD LEAD TO A DOWNGRADE

- Decrease in days cash on hand below 90 days for a sustained
   period

- Termination of the lease agreement of the hydroelectric
   facility without commensurate increase in base rates to support

   debt service

LEGAL SECURITY

Net power system revenues. The indenture includes a 1.15x rate
covenant and provision for a debt service reserve funded at maximum
annual debt service. The rate covenant incorporates draws from and
contributions to GIPA's rate stabilization account and is also
based on a budgeted amount. Moody's consider these provisions as
diluting the strength of the rate covenant.

USE OF PROCEEDS

None

PROFILE

GIPA is a small electric distribution and hydroelectric generating
utility (1,600 total customers) that serves the electric needs of
the Village of Green Island comprising three islands on the Hudson
River approximately 9 miles north of Albany. GIPA owns and operates
a run-of-the-river 6 MW hydroelectric facility and a distribution
system to provide low-cost power to its residential, commercial,
industrial and municipal users

METHODOLOGY

The principal methodology used in this rating was US Public Power
Electric Utilities With Generation Ownership Exposure published in
November 2017.


GULFPORT ENERGY: S&P Raises CCR to 'BB-', Outlook Stable
--------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings raised its corporate credit rating on U.S.-based
oil and gas exploration and production (E&P) company Gulfport
Energy Corp. to 'BB-' from 'B+'. The outlook is stable.

S&P also raised the issue-level rating on the company's unsecured
debt to 'BB-' from 'B+' and revised the recovery rating to '3' from
'4', reflecting its expectation of meaningful (50%-70%; rounded
estimate: 50%) recovery in the event of a payment default.  

The upgrade reflects Gulfport's success at integrating assets
acquired in the South Central Oklahoma Oil Province, (SCOOP) play
into its development plan and increasing its production and
reserves throughout the year while maintaining a relatively
conservative financial policy.

S&P said, "The stable outlook on Gulfport Energy Corp. reflects our
expectations that the company will maintain a conservative
financial policy while continuing to develop its Utica and SCOOP
asset base. We expect the company to maintain FFO to debt of
greater than 20% and at least adequate liquidity.

"We could lower the ratings if a period of lower commodity prices
leads to a decline in profitability or if management pursues a more
aggressive spending plan, resulting in weaker credit measures,
including FFO to debt below 20% on an ongoing basis.

"We could raise the ratings if the company increased its proved
developed reserves and production to levels more comparable with
higher-rated peers and/or increased FFO to debt above 45% while
maintaining at least adequate liquidity. Additionally, the
continued successful development of the SCOOP assets, including a
larger mix of liquid production could also result in a more
favorable assessment of Gulfport's business risk profile."

HENRY HOLDINGS: S&P Puts 'B' CCR on Watch Dev. on Fortifiber Deal
-----------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings placed its 'B' corporate credit rating on Henry
Holdings Inc. on CreditWatch with developing implications.

S&P said, "We also placed the 'B' issue-level rating on Henry's
$360 million senior secured credit facilities on CreditWatch with
developing implications. The '3' recovery rating is unchanged and
indicates our expectation of meaningful (50%-70%; rounded estimate:
55%) recovery in the event of a payment default.

"The CreditWatch placement follows the announcement that Henry
Holdings Inc. plans to acquire Fortifiber Building Systems Group
and pending receipt by us of further information regarding the
acquisition.

"We intend to resolve the CreditWatch listing within the next 90
days pending our discussions with Henry and receiving further
details as to the capital and operating structure after the
acquisition.

"We could lower the rating on Henry if the company's future capital
structure and leverage profile resulted in its adjusted debt to
EBITDA rising to above 7x or EBITDA interest coverage falling to
below 2x on a sustained basis.

"Conversely, we could raise the rating on Henry if we believed the
capital structure would support sustained debt to EBITDA of no more
than 4x, with a commitment by  its financial-sponsor owner American
Securities that leverage would stay below that level.

"We could affirm the corporate credit rating on Henry if
debt-to-EBITDA leverage were to be maintained in the 4x-6x range
and the company were able to convey to us that this would be a
normalized level of leverage going forward."


HERALD MEDIA: U.S. Trustee Unable to Appoint Committee

filing that no official committee of unsecured creditors has been

HIG HOLDINGS: S&P Affirms Then Withdraws 'B' Issuer Credit Rating
-----------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said it affirmed its 'B' long-term issuer credit
ratings on HIG Holdings Inc. (HIG) and its core subsidiaries. The
outlook is stable. Subsequently, at the company's request S&P has
withdrawn all ratings.

S&P said, "The stable outlook reflects our expectation that HIG
will continue to produce healthy margins and earnings growth due to
increased scale from both organic growth and a modest acquisitive
strategy. This should enable the company to demonstrate a
de-leveraging trend, with leverage between 6.8x and 7.2x by
year-end 2018. We forecast margins between 28% and 30% and adjusted
EBITDA interest coverage (pro forma for annualized earnings from
mergers and acquisitions) in the lower to mid-2x range over the
next 12 months."

on the consolidated financial statements for the year ended Dec.
31, 2016, citing that the Company has suffered recurring losses
from operations, negative cash flows from operations and other
related liquidity concerns, which raises substantial doubt about
the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.

Hooper Holmes reported a net loss of $10.32 million on $34.27
million of revenues for the year ended Dec. 31, 2016, compared to a
net loss of $10.87 million on $32.11 million of revenues for the
year ended Dec. 31, 2015.  As of Sept. 30, 2017, Hooper Holmes had
$37.20 million in total assets, $42.11 million in total liabilities
and a total stockholders' deficit of $4.91 million.

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

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

INTERNATIONAL SEAWAYS: S&P Places 'B' CCR on CreditWatch Negative
-----------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings placed its 'B' corporate credit rating on
International Seaways Inc. on CreditWatch with negative
implications.

S&P said, "At the same time, we placed our 'BB-' issue-level
ratings on the company's $50 million senior secured revolver and
$550 million senior secured first-lien term loan, issued by OIN
Delaware LLC and International Seaways Operating Corp., on
CreditWatch with negative implications. The '1' recovery ratings
are unchanged, indicating our expectation for very high recovery in
the event of a default on the revolver (90%-100%; rounded estimate:
95%) and the term loan (90%-100%; rounded estimate 90%).

"The CreditWatch listing reflects International Seaways' higher
debt leverage pro forma for the proposed acquisition. Additionally,
we note that over the past six months the company has somewhat
underperformed relative to our previous expectations, owing to the
challenging market conditions in the international shipping sector.


"The CreditWatch negative placement indicates that there is at
least a one-in-two likelihood that we could lower our corporate
credit rating on International Seaways by one notch if the company
closes on the debt-financed transaction and we do not expect
meaningful improvement in credit measures over the subsequent
12-month period. We will continue to monitor any developments
related to the proposed acquisition, including the company's
financing plans and the likelihood of its successful completion.

"Additionally, we intend to review our issue-level and recovery
ratings on the company's existing revolver and term loan once
details emerge about the company's pro forma capital structure. We
expect to resolve the CreditWatch placement following the close of
the transaction."


IOWA HEALTHCARE: Files Chapter 11 Joint Plan of Liquidation
-----------------------------------------------------------
Central Iowa Healthcare filed with the U.S. District Court for the
Southern District of Iowa a disclosure statement with respect to
the Debtor and the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors of
Central Iowa Healthcare's joint plan of liquidation dated Dec. 12,
2017.

The Plan contemplates the transfer of all of the Debtor's remaining
assets to the Central Iowa Healthcare Liquidation Trust for the
benefit of holders of Allowed Claims, following any payments or
transfers made on or before the Effective Date to the holders of
Allowed Claims and as provided for in the Plan. The holders of
Allowed Claims will share in the proceeds from the Liquidation
Trust, in accordance with the priorities of the Bankruptcy Code and
as provided under the Plan. The provisions of the Liquidation Trust
and the Plan will be implemented under the direction of the
Liquidation Trustee.

Class 7 under the joint liquidation plan consists of Allowed
General Unsecured Claims. The holder of an Allowed General
Unsecured Claim will receive his Pro Rata Share of Available Cash;
provided, however, that the aggregate distributions received
pursuant to the Plan will not exceed the amount of Allowed General
Unsecured Claims plus, if applicable, Post-petition Interest due on
such claims.  In total, scheduled and filed General Unsecured
Claims, in this case, totaled over $100,000,000 million. The Plan
Proponents estimate that Allowed Class 7 Claims will total
approximately $20.5 million at the conclusion of the claims
resolution process. This class is impaired.

The Plan will be funded by the orderly liquidation of all remaining
property of the Estate (including recoveries from Causes of
Action). Distributions will be made from the Liquidation Trust
after the Effective Date under the terms of the Plan and the
Liquidation Trust Agreement.

              About Central Iowa Healthcare

The Central Iowa Healthcare, formerly doing business as
Marshalltown Medical Surgical Center, is a not-for-profit
corporation formed under the laws of the State of Iowa, and is tax
exempt pursuant to Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code.
It is governed by a 14-member Board of Trustees of which two
members serve on an ex-officio basis.

CIH operates a community hospital in Marshalltown, Iowa, which is
located between Des Moines and Cedar Rapids. Its 49-bed, acute care
facility is the only full-service medical center in the area.

CIH is the sixth largest employer in Marshalltown. According to
U.S. Census 2015 data, Marshalltown's population is estimated at
27,620 and a median income of $50,396.

Declining revenues over the past several years have placed a
considerable financial strain on CIH and led to uncertainty about
the hospital's ability to continue as a going concern.

CIH sought Chapter 11 protection (Bankr. S.D. Iowa Case No.
16-02438) on Dec. 20, 2016. The petition was signed by Dawnett
Willis, acting CEO. The Debtor disclosed $81.91 million total
assets and $20.02 million total liabilities.

The case is assigned to Judge Anita L. Shodeen.

The Debtor hired Bradshaw, Fowler, Proctor & Fairgrave, P.C., as
its legal counsel, and Alvarez & Marsal Healthcare Industry Group,
LLC as its financial advisor. The Debtor engaged Andy Wang, Esq.,
at Wang Kobayashi Austin, LLC, as special counsel.

The U.S. Trustee for the Southern appointed Susan N. Goodman as the
patient care ombudsman for CIH.

On Dec. 28, 2016, the U.S. Trustee appointed an official committee
of unsecured creditors. The Committee is represented by Francis J.
Lawall, Esq., at Pepper Hamilton LLP.

                          *     *     *

In March 2017, the bankruptcy court approved the sale of the
Debtors' assets to UnityPoint Health-Waterloo, an affiliate of Des
Moines, Iowa-based UnityPoint Health, for $11.9 million.


JOSEPH HEATH: $369K Sale of Alexandria Property to Marsh Approved

District of Virginia authorized Joseph F. Heath's sale of real
property known as 7139 Mason Grove Court, Unit 17, Alexandria,
Virginia, described as Groveton Woods Condo Unit 17 Phase 3,
Groveton Woods as found in Deed Book 18466, Page 1499 of the Land
Records of Fairfax County, Tax Map Id# 92-4-13-17, to Latina Marsh
for $369,000.

The lien of Select Portfolio Services ("SPS") and the IRS will
attach to the proceeds.

The Debtor is authorized and directed to distribute the sale
proceeds as follows:

     a. the ordinary and necessary costs of closing and
recordation;

     b. the real property taxes owed to Fairfax County (if any);

     c. the secured claim of SPS;

     d. the quarterly fees of the Office of the U.S. Trustee in the
amount of $4,875, which are to be held in reserve by the Debtor
until payment to the U.S. Trustee; and

     e. the IRS.

Upon settlement, the Debtor will promptly prepare and file a Report
of Sale detailing the distribution of the sale proceeds as
described.

                      About Joseph F. Heath

Joseph F. Heath sought Chapter 11 protection (Bankr. E.D. Va. Case
No. 07-14107) on Dec. 27, 2007.  The Debtor estimated assets in the
range of $0 to $50,000 and $100,001 to $500,000 in debt.  The
Debtor tapped Bennett A. Brown, Esq., at The Law Office of Bennett
A. Brown, as counsel.


LAGO RESORT: S&P Cuts CCR to 'CCC' on Weak Operating Performance
----------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings lowered its corporate credit rating on Tyre,
N.Y.-based Lago Resort & Casino to 'CCC' from 'CCC+' and removed
the rating from CreditWatch, where S&P had placed it with negative
implications on Sept. 5, 2017.

S&P said, "At the same time, we lowered the issue-level ratings on
the company's $15 million revolving credit facility and $225
million first-lien term loan one notch to 'B-', in line with the
downgrade of the company, and removed them from CreditWatch. The
recovery rating remains '1',  reflecting our expectation for very
high recovery (90%-100%) for lenders in the event of a payment
default. The revolver has priority over the term loan, so our
rounded recovery estimate on this debt remains 95%. The rounded
estimate on the first-lien term loan is now 90%.

"We also revised the recovery rating on Lago's $85 million
second-lien term loan to '6' from '5', and lowered the issue-level
rating on this debt to 'CC' from 'CCC'. We also removed the rating
from CreditWatch. The '6' recovery rating reflects our expectation
for negligible recovery for lenders (0%-10%; rounded estimate: 0%)
in the event of a payment default. The  revised recovery rating on
the second-lien term loan reflects a lower assumed valuation of the
company given weak operating performance since opening.

"The downgrade reflects our view that Lago's meaningful
underperformance and a very slow ramp-up in operations since the
opening of the casino in February 2017 heightens the risk of some
form of debt restructuring over the next 12 months. We expect Lago
to continue to struggle to ramp up EBITDA generation at del Lago
Resort & Casino, located in Waterloo, N.Y., to a level that
comfortably covers our estimate of cash fixed charges, which
includes interest expense, amortization, and modest maintenance
capital expenditures. This is because of underperforming visitation
and revenue at Lago due to a high level of competition and
promotional activity from existing nearby competitors in its
market- principally Turning Stone Resort Casino 70 miles away in
Verona, N.Y., and Seneca Gaming Corporation, which operates the
Seneca Niagara Resort & Casino, 120 miles away in Niagara Falls,
N.Y. and the Seneca Buffalo Creek Casino 110 miles away in Buffalo,
N.Y.  In the event operating performance does not improve from
current levels, we believe Lago's capital structure would be
unsustainable over the long run and the company could face a
liquidity crisis over the next 12 months absent additional equity
contributions from its owners. Lago has depleted its interest
reserve, and must rely solely on internally generated cash flow,
cash balances, and availability under its $15 million revolver to
fund fixed charges, which we estimate to be between $40 million and
$45 million a year. As a result, internal liquidity may become
impaired if EBITDA generation does not improve over the next
several quarters compared to recent poor quarterly performance.

The company's ability to pay in kind (PIK) a portion of the
interest expense on its second-lien term loan provides some
flexibility to allow the property to further ramp up operations
over the near time. However, this benefit is partially offset
because the cash burden on this piece of debt will continue to
increase over time as the PIK interest increases the principal
balance of the second-lien term loan.

S&P said, "The negative rating outlook reflects our expectation
that Lago's capital structure could be unsustainable in the event
operating performance doesn't improve from current levels. The
negative outlook also reflects our expectation that the company is
unlikely to meet its increasing minimum EBITDA covenant absent
additional equity support from owners. While we have less concern
near term about the maximum leverage and minimum EBITDA covenant,
we believe the company could violate these covenants by the third
measurement date (June 2018) if operating performance doesn't
improve from current levels.

"We could lower the rating if we no longer expected the owners
would be willing to provide additional temporary liquidity support
over the next several quarters, which would increase the likelihood
of some form of restructuring within the next 12 months. This could
occur if Lago's current high level of marketing and promotional
allowance spending fails to attract sufficient visitation and
revenue at the resort to drive meaningful incremental EBITDA that
can cover fixed charges.

"We are unlikely to consider stabilizing the outlook or raising the
rating until Lago demonstrates that it can improve operating
performance to a level that will comfortably cover its fixed
charges and sustain adequate covenant cushion, in a manner that
causes us to believe the capital structure is sustainable over the
long run.

"Our simulated default scenario contemplates a payment default in
2018 reflecting lower-than-expected revenues and cash flow as a
result of the inability to generate sufficient customer traffic and
increased competitive pressures from other casinos in upstate New
York. We assume Lago would fully draw its $15 million revolving
credit facility to fund operations as we believe all sources of
liquidity would be exhausted on the path to default.

"We assume a reorganization following the default, using an
emergence EBITDA and a multiple of 6x to value the company."

-- Emergence EBITDA: $42 mil.
-- EBITDA multiple: 6x
-- Gross recovery value: $253 mil.
-- Net recovery value for waterfall after administrative expenses
(5%): $240 mil.
-- Obligor/nonobligor valuation split: 100%/0%
-- Estimated priority claim (vendor financing): $7.5 mil.
-- First-out revolving credit facility: $16 mil.
-- Value available for first-out revolving credit facility: $233
mil.
-- Recovery range: 90%-100% (rounded estimate: 95%)
-- Estimated first-lien claim (first-lien term loan): $238 mil.
-- Value available for first-lien claim: $217 mil.
-- Recovery range: 90%-100% (rounded estimate: 90%)
-- Estimated second-lien claim (second-lien term loan): $91 mil.
-- Value available for second-lien claim: $0 mil.
-- Recovery range: 0% to 10% (rounded estimate: 0%)


LAKE SHORE GAS: Seeks Authority to Use Cash Collateral
------------------------------------------------------
Lake Shore Gas Storage Inc. seeks authorization from the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Ohio to use cash
collateral.

The Debtor believes that it can operate its business during the
Chapter 11 and successfully reorganize its business if it will be
allowed to use cash collateral. The Debtor proposes to use cash
collateral for purposes which include: (a) care, maintenance and
preservation of the Debtor's assets; and (b) payment of necessary
business expenses.

Prior to the Petition Date, the Debtor has executed several loan
obligations with Parkview Federal Savings and Loan now First
National Bank of Pennsylvania. As of the petition date, the Debtor
was indebted to First National Bank in the approximate amount of
$10,000,000. Pursuant to these loan obligations, it appears that
the Debtor may have granted to First National Bank a security
interest all of its assets.

The Debtor believes that First National Bank will assert (a) that
it has a perfected security interests in the Collateral and (b)
that First National Bank perfected security interests generally
enjoy the first level of priority. The proceeds from the collateral
may constitute the cash collateral of First National Bank.

Because of uncertainties regarding the timing of expenses and
purchases, and the impact of Chapter 11 on these items, the Debtor
asserts that it is impossible to predict with accuracy the precise
amount of cash collateral necessary for the Debtor to operate its
business. The Debtor assures the Court that the proposed
utilization of cash collateral will not, in any event, impair First
National Bank's position.

As such, the Debtor proposes to grant First National Bank of
Pennsylvania a replacement lien on all inventory and accounts
receivables acquired after the Petition Date equal in extent,
validity, and priority to the security interest in inventory and
accounts that First National Bank held as of the Petition Date.

               About Chowder Gas and Lake Shore Gas

Chowder Gas and Storage Facility LLC and Lake Shore Gas Storage
Inc. are natural gas storage providers based in Willoughby, Ohio.

Chowder Gas and Lake Shore sought protection under Chapter 11 of
the Bankruptcy Code (Bankr. N.D. Ohio Case Nos. 17-17245 and
17-17246) on Dec. 9, 2017.  Richard M. Osborne, its managing
member, signed the petitions.

At the time of the filing, Chowder Gas estimated assets and
liabilities of $1 million to $10 million.  Lake Shore Gas estimated
assets of less than $50,000 and liabilities of $1 million to $10
million.

Judge Arthur I Harris presides over the cases.


MEDONE HEALTHCARE: Seeks Approval on Cash Collateral Stipulation
----------------------------------------------------------------
Medone Healthcare, LLC, asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Arizona for entry of a Stipulated Interim Order
approving the Debtor's use of funds that its primary secured
creditor, Arizona Bank & Trust claims as its cash collateral.

Pursuant to several Loan Documents, the Debtor was indebted to
Arizona Bank in the total aggregate amount of $4,341,597, as of the
Petition Date plus accruing interests, fees and costs.  Prior to
the Petition Date, the Debtor and, Arizona Bank & Trust engaged in
discussions to allow the Debtor to use Arizona Bank's cash
collateral in the ordinary course of the Debtor's business
regarding the anticipated filing of this Chapter 11 case.

The Debtor submitted a proposed budget to Arizona Bank, reflecting
anticipated revenues and expenses through March 3, 2018.  After
negotiations and Arizona Bank's consideration of the proposed
budget, an agreement was reached whereby Arizona Bank will permit
the Debtor to use cash collateral, initially through Jan. 5, 2018.


The Debtor and Arizona Bank have entered into an agreement that
permits the Debtor to use the cash collateral in the ordinary
course of its business for a limited duration.  The Budget contains
monthly projections of expenses from December 6, 2017 through Jan.
5, 2018.

Arizona Bank will be granted, valid and perfected security
interests and liens in all of Debtor's interests in property
acquired after the Petition Date, of the type described as
collateral in the Loan Documents, including all proceeds therefrom.
The Replacements Liens granted to Arizona Bank will: (a) secure
repayment of the Indebtedness; (b) be evidenced by the existing
Loan Documents and this Order; and (c) have the same validity and
priority as Arizona Bank's existing liens and security interests in
the cash collateral and the collateral.

To the extent the replacement liens do not provide Arizona Bank
with adequate protection of its interest in the cash collateral,
Arizona Bank will have a super-priority administrative expense
claim as necessary to fully compensate Arizona Bank for the use of
its cash collateral.

The Debtor asserts that the use of Arizona Bank's cash collateral
is critically important for the Debtor to maintain its business
operations and to preserve value in its assets for the anticipated
Section 363 sale.

MESOBLAST LIMITED: MSC Product Phase 3 Trial Completes Enrollment
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Mesoblast Limited announced that the Phase 3 trial of its
proprietary allogeneic mesenchymal stem cell (MSC) product
candidate MSC-100-IV in children with steroid-refractory acute
graft versus host disease (aGVHD) has completed enrollment.
Top-line results are expected in Q1 2018.  In November 2016, the
Phase 3 trial was successful in a pre-specified interim futility
analysis of the primary endpoint.

There are currently no therapeutic products approved in the United
States to treat this life-threatening complication of allogeneic
bone marrow transplants.  Based on discussions with the United
States Food and Drug Administration, Mesoblast intends to use the
results of this single, open label trial to support a Biologics
License Application (BLA) filing for accelerated product approval.
Mesoblast has received Fast Track designation for MSC-100-IV for
treatment of steroid-refractory acute GVHD in children.

In 2016, Mesoblast's licensee in Japan, JCR Pharmaceuticals Co.
Ltd, launched TEMCELL HS. Inj.1, an allogeneic MSC product, after
receiving marketing approval from the Japanese Ministry of Health,
Labour and Welfare for the treatment of aGVHD in children and
adults.

               About Graft Versus Host Disease

Mesoblast is developing MSC-100-IV for the treatment of aGVHD
following an allogeneic bone marrow transplant (BMT).  In patients
who have received a BMT, donor cells may attack the recipient (the
person receiving the transplant), causing aGVHD, resulting in
activation of pro-inflammatory T-cells and tissue damage in the
skin, gut and liver.  This condition, when severe and unresponsive
to initial steroid therapy, is often fatal.  According to the
Center for International Blood and Marrow Transplant Research,
there are approximately 30,000 allogeneic BMTs globally per year
for diseases including hematological cancers, with 25% of all cases
in the pediatric population.  Nearly 50% of all allogeneic BMT
patients develop aGVHD.  Liver or gastrointestinal involvement
occur in up to 40% of all patients with aGVHD and are associated
with the greatest risk of death, with mortality rates of up to
85%.

Pharmaceuticals Co. Ltd.

                        About Mesoblast

Australia-based Mesoblast Limited (ASX:MSB; Nasdaq:MESO) is a
global developer of innovative cell-based medicines.  The Company
has leveraged its proprietary technology platform, which is based
on specialized cells known as mesenchymal lineage adult stem cells,
to establish a broad portfolio of late-stage product candidates.
Mesoblast's allogeneic, 'off-the-shelf' cell product candidates
target advanced stages of diseases with high, unmet medical needs
including cardiovascular conditions, orthopedic disorders,
immunologic and inflammatory disorders and oncologic/hematologic
conditions.

Mesoblast Limited reported a net loss before income tax of US$90.21
million for the year ended June 30, 2017, a net loss before income
tax of US$90.82 million for the year ended June 30, 2016, and a net
loss before income tax of US$96.24 million for the year ended June
30, 2015.  As of Sept. 30, 2017, Mesoblast had US$671.9 million in
total assets, US$112.30 million in total liabilities and US$559.6
million in total equity.

PricewaterhouseCoopers, in Melbourne, Australia, issued a "going
concern" opinion on the consolidated financial statements for the
year ended June 30, 2017, noting that Company has suffered
recurring losses from operations that raise substantial doubt about
its ability to continue as a going concern.


MH SUB I: Moody's Assigns B3 Corp. Family Rating; Outlook Stable
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a B3 Corporate Family Rating
(CFR), B3-PD Probability of Default Rating and stable rating
outlook to MH Sub I, LLC (d/b/a "Internet Brands") and withdrew all
ratings at Internet Brands, Inc. following a reorganization of the
corporate structure. The rated debt instruments residing at MH Sub
I, LLC and co-borrower Micro Holding Corp. will be dissociated from
Internet Brands, Inc.

MH Sub I, LLC, which operates using the Internet Brands trade name,
is the senior most legal entity in the revised corporate structure
for which Moody's maintains debt instrument ratings comprising the
Internet Brands/Web MD credit obligor group related to the
September 15, 2017 debt financing. Internet Brands, Inc. is now the
legal holding company and guarantor with respect to the recently
assigned credit and debt instrument ratings at Autodata, Inc.
Autodata was removed from the Internet Brands/Web MD restricted
group prior to closing the Web MD transaction.

Outlook, Assigned Stable

Issuer: Internet Brands, Inc.

Outlook, Withdrawn, Previously Stable

RATINGS RATIONALE

MH Sub I, LLC's (d/b/a "Internet Brands" or the "company") B3 CFR
is constrained by its elevated pro forma financial leverage
following the WebMD purchase, acquisitive growth strategy, shift to
bigger debt-funded M&A targets, and meaningful transformation of
the business model which increases exposure to cyclical advertising
revenue after previously transitioning to a mostly
subscription-based SaaS revenue model. The B3 rating is supported
by the company's position as an established online media company
that owns leading digital media assets including WebMD's digital
healthcare advertising assets, which gives Internet Brands an
opportunity to create the foremost online healthcare platform. The
rating also benefits from Moody's expectation for continued good
organic traffic and revenue growth as media content and consumers
increasingly migrate to digital and mobile platforms. A low-cost
traffic acquisition model and exposure to high margin
SaaS/software-based service offerings with relatively high
retention rates are also credit positives. Moody's expect Internet
Brands to produce positive free cash flow and maintain very good
liquidity.

Rating Outlook

The stable rating outlook reflects Moody's expectation that over
the rating horizon Internet Brands will maintain its position as a
leading online media company with a highly-leveraged capital
structure. The stable outlook also anticipates the company will
maintain a low-cost traffic acquisition model in its
marketplace/media segments and achieve anticipated cost synergies
within the first 18 months after the WebMD closing leading to
relatively stable operating margins and steady cash flow growth.

What Could Change the Rating -- Up

An upgrade is unlikely over the rating horizon given Moody's
expectation for continued growth via debt-financed acquisitions
resulting in a highly levered capital structure. Over the
long-term, ratings could be upgraded if Internet Brands were to
maintain its leading market position, demonstrate organic
revenue/earnings growth and continue to successfully integrate
acquisitions. An upgrade would also be considered if the company
were to expand the subscription-based services to at least 50% of
total revenue, improve end market diversification and sustain
financial leverage below 6.5x total debt to GAAP EBITDA (Moody's
adjusted).

What Could Change the Rating -- Down

Ratings may be downgraded if Internet Brands' competitive position
weakens (as measured by market share), recurring/reoccurring
revenue and/or performance--based ad revenue declines from current
levels, acquisitions exhibit underperformance or marketing and
development costs increase (as measured by operating margin
performance). Ratings could also experience downward pressure if
total debt to GAAP EBITDA is sustained above 8x (Moody's
adjusted).

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

Headquartered in Los Angeles, CA, Internet Brands is the trade name
for MH Sub I, LLC, an internet media company that owns more than
250 branded websites across four verticals (Automotive; Legal;
Health; and Home, Travel and Other) characterized by high consumer
activity and good advertising spend. The company licenses and
delivers its content and internet technology products and services
to small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs), major corporations and
individual website owners primarily via two revenue models: (i) a
subscription-based Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform; and (ii)
performance-based advertising.


MICRON TECHNOLOGY: S&P Affirms 'BB' Sr. Unsecured Notes Rating
--------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings affirmed its 'BB' issue rating on Boise,
Idaho-based semiconductor producer Micron Technology Inc.'s senior
unsecured notes and revised the recovery rating to '3' from '4'.
The '3' recovery rating indicates our expectation of meaningful
recovery (50%-70%; rounded estimate: 60%) in the event of a payment
default. The corporate credit rating on Micron remains unchanged.

Micron recently raised new equity to repay the 7.5% secured notes
due 2023 entirely. The company also redeemed its 5.25% senior
unsecured notes due 2023. As a result, total reported debt was
about $9.3 billion as of Nov. 30, 2017. The company intends to
reduce debt further during fiscal 2018. Recovery prospects could
improve depending on the size and ranking of the debt being
retired. However, we generally cap recovery ratings on unsecured
debt by companies in the 'BB' category at '3' to account for the
greater risk of value impairment by incremental security pledge to
raise new debt, as those companies' credit quality deteriorates
prior to default.

S&P said, "Our positive outlook on Micron reflects our expectation
that the company will continue to reduce debt such that leverage
will remain below 1x over the coming year. Relatively stable memory
market conditions and solid end-market demand over the coming year,
combined with Micron's substantial cash balances, should allow the
company to proceed into the next phase of technological transition
while producing less volatile operating performance. We could raise
the rating over the coming year if the company demonstrates more
stable operating performance through industry cycles, generates
solid free cash flow during heavy technology investment periods
without compromising its market position, and maintains leverage in
the low-1x area."

NCCD-COLLEGE STATION: S&P Cuts Debt Rating to 'CCC' on Risk Default
-------------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings lowered its long-term rating on New Hope
Cultural Education Finance Corp., Texas' series 2015A and series
2015B taxable student housing revenue bonds, issued for National
Campus & Community Development Corp.'s College Station Properties
LLC (NCCD-College Station), to 'CCC' from 'BBB-'. The outlook is
negative.

"The rating and negative outlook reflect our view that NCCD-College
Station is likely to default without positive developments in
occupancy and revenues," said S&P Global Ratings credit analyst
Sean Lacy. "It also reflects our opinion of at least a one-in-two
likelihood of default given that the project may run into cash flow
shortfalls starting in March 2018, as well as violation of the debt
service coverage in fiscal 2018." NCCD-College Station will likely
require a draw on its debt service reserve for a portion of the
July 2018 debt service payment. The cash flow shortfalls are a
result of the project's much lower than anticipated fall 2017
occupancy of 54% and expected occupancy of 52% for spring 2018.

Currently, NCCD-College Station can draw on its debt service
reserve fund for debt service payments to avoid default. In
addition, NCCD-College Station is actively marketing to acquire new
leases and improve occupancy. NCCD-College Station's current debt
service reserve fund of $23.76 million is adequate to cover the
July 2018 payment of $18.5 million. If the cash flow shortfalls
continue, NCCD-College Station may not be able to pay its debt
obligations in July 2019.


NCP FINANCE: S&P Affirms Then Withdraws 'B-' Issuer Credit Rating

On Dec. 22, 2017, S&P Global Ratings affirmed its 'B-' issuer

from negative. S&P subsequently withdrew all ratings at the
company's request.

S&P revised the outlook to stable from negative on no imminent
refinancing risk. S&P has withdrawn its ratings in accordance with
the company's request.

NORTHERN OIL: Board OKs $176 Million 2018 Capital Budget
--------------------------------------------------------
Northern Oil and Gas, Inc., announced a fourth quarter 2017 update,
provided preliminary 2018 production and capital expenditure
estimates, and announced changes to the Company's Board of
Directors.

FOURTH QUARTER 2017 UPDATE

   * Raising fourth quarter production guidance; now expecting
     average daily production to increase by 4% to 6% over third
     quarter 2017, compared to prior guidance indicating flat
     sequential production at the mid-point

   * Now expect to add approximately 5 to 6 net wells to
     production during the fourth quarter resulting in 2017 net
     well additions of approximately 15 to 16 net wells

   * Fourth quarter oil differential expected to improve by $1.50
     per barrel versus the mid-point of prior guidance; now
     expecting a ($5.00) per barrel of oil differential for the
     quarter

   * Wells in process have increased by 6.6 net wells during 2017,
     from 13.4 net wells as of Dec. 31, 2016 to 20 net wells as of
     Nov. 30, 2017

PRELIMINARY 2018 PRODUCTION AND CAPITAL EXPENDITURE BUDGET

   * The Board has approved a preliminary 2018 capital budget of
     up to $176 million, which contemplates 20 to 22 net wells
     added to production during 2018

   * Based on this preliminary budget, 2018 annual production is
     expected to increase by 10% to 14% when compared to 2017

   * The Board is also targeting a 10% to 15% reduction in general

     and administrative expenses when compared to 2017 levels

MANAGEMENT COMMENT

"The momentum we saw exiting the third quarter has continued into
the fourth quarter and as a result we are raising our expectations
for fourth quarter production," commented Northern's Interim CEO
and CFO, Tom Stoelk.  "Our capital allocation process has resulted
in a great inventory of wells in process, which we expect will
continue to drive strong performance in 2018.  As a result, we are
estimating that we will add between 20 and 22 net wells to
production during 2018, resulting in 2018 estimated production
growth of between 10% and 14%."

BOARD OF DIRECTORS

   * Rich Weber, Northern's Chairman, announced his resignation to
     allow him to focus his time on his responsibilities as
     Chairman and CEO of PennEnergy Resources

   * The Board appointed current director Bahram Akradi as lead
     independent director and a member of the Board's Executive
     Committee

   * Mr. Akradi and the Executive Committee will provide
     leadership to help guide the Company on an ongoing basis

"The Company wishes to thank Rich for his tireless service as
Chairman over the last two years as well as his Board contributions
over the last six years," commented Bahram Akradi, Northern's lead
independent director.  "It has been a pleasure working with Rich
since joining the Board earlier this year.  I am extremely excited
about the future of Northern and where we can take this company
over the coming months and years; it is a future I am excited to be
a part of."

Three Forks play in North Dakota and Montana.

Northern Oil reported a net loss of $293.5 million on $144.9
million of total revenues for the year ended Dec. 31, 2016,
compared to a net loss of $975.4 million on $275.05 million of
total revenues in 2015.

In December 2017, Moody's Investors Service affirmed Northern Oil
and Gas, Inc.'s (NOG) Caa2 Corporate Family Rating (CFR), Caa2-PD
Probability of Default Rating (PDR), and Caa3 senior unsecured
notes rating.  NOG's Caa2 CFR reflects its high leverage, weak
asset coverage of debt (under 1x), modest scale and Moody's
expectations that NOG's cash flows will continue to be challenged
through 2018.

As reported by the TCR on Nov. 16, 2017, S&P Global Ratings raised
its corporate credit rating on Northern Oil and Gas Inc. to 'CCC+'
from 'CCC-'.  The outlook is negative.  "The upgrade reflects our
assessment of the company's improving, but still weak financial
measures and liquidity following the capital raised from the new
term loans, and the repayment and termination of the revolving
credit facility, which was due in 2018 ($155 million outstanding as
of Sept. 30, 2017)," S&P said.


NOTIS GLOBAL: Incurs $5.73 Million Net Loss in Q3 2016
------------------------------------------------------
Notis Global, Inc., filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q reporting a net loss
of $5.73 million on $41,245 of net revenue for the three months
ended Sept. 30, 2016, compared to a net loss of $9.29 million on
$314,153 of net revenue for the same period in 2015.

For the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2016, the Company reported net
income of $2.06 million on $565,228 of net revenue compared to a
net loss of $25.12 million on $464,910 of net revenue for the nine
months ended Sept. 30, 2015.

As of Sept. 30, 2016, Notis Global had $7.20 million in total
assets, $27.35 million in total liabilities and a total
stockholders' deficit of $20.15 million.

As of Sept. 30, 2016, the Company had cash on hand of approximately
$205,000 compared to approximately $347,000 at Sept. 30, 2015.

During the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2016, cash flows used in
operating activities were approximately $4,142,000, consisting
primarily of the net income for the nine months ended Sept. 30,
2016 of approximately $ $2,062,000, increased for non-cash
financing costs of approximately $3,839,000, amortization of the
debt discount of approximately $4,111,000, stock based compensation
of approximately $696,000, and reduced for non-cash adjustments for
the change in fair value of the derivative liability of
approximately $17,507,000 and change in fair value of the warrant
liability of approximately $912,000.  Additional significant
components of cash used in operating activities included the
accrued settlement expenses for rental expense under the lease for
the previous office in West Hollywood of approximately $227,000,
offset by an increase of approximately $4,172,000 due to the timing
and deferral of the payment of trade payables, and an increase in
accrued interest of approximately $656,000.

During the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2016, cash flows used in
investing activities was approximately $149,000, consisting
primarily of the $617,000 in costs related to construction in
progress for the build out of greenhouses on the Farm, offset by
approximately $631,000 in proceeds from the sale of the Company’s
interest in San Diego Sunset, as well as the proceeds from the sale
of the assets of Varporfection, and approximately $92,000 in
proceeds for the sale of the rights and assets of the Portland
dispensary.

During the nine months ended Sept. 30, 2016, cash flows provided by
financing activities were approximately $4,078,000, consisting
primarily of approximately $2,901,000 of net proceeds from the
issuance of convertible notes payable, approximately $1,017,012
notes payable, net and $105,000 from the issuance of convertible
debentures to two of the Company's Directors.

"Management believes that the Company's cash balances on hand, cash
flows expected to be generated from operations, proceeds from
current and future expected debt issuances and proceeds from future
share capital issuances, if any, may not be sufficient to fund the
Company's net cash requirements through January 2018.  As noted in
the footnotes to the accompanying condensed consolidated financial
statements, the Company recently received a Notice of Default from
a creditor following non-payment of the balance under a certain
promissory note at maturity thereof, pursuant to which the Company
will incur penalties and an increased interest rate as well as
potential legal expenses associated with the creditor's legal
actions.... As of the date of this filing, the Company is in
technical default on all notes outstanding.  The Company is unable
to predict the outcome of these matters, however, legal action
taken by the Company's lenders could have a material adverse effect
on the financial condition, results of operations and/or cash flows
of the Company and their ability to raise funds in the future.  In
order to execute the Company's long-term growth strategy, which may
include selected acquisitions of businesses or facilities that may
bolster the Company's CBD oil extraction business or real estate
for the cultivation of hemp, the Company will need to raise
additional funds through public or private equity offerings, debt
financings, or other means."

NOVABAY PHARMACEUTICALS: Extends General Counsel's Term Until 2019
------------------------------------------------------------------
NovaBay Pharmaceuticals, Inc. and Justin Hall, the Company's senior
vice president, general counsel, executed a new employment
agreement in connection with the expiration of Mr. Hall's current
employment agreement dated as of Dec. 29, 2015, which expires on
Dec. 31, 2017.

Mr. Hall's new employment agreement provides for a term commencing
on Jan. 1, 2018 and ending on Dec. 31, 2019.  Mr. Hall's employment
agreement provides for an annual base salary of  $260,000, subject
to at least annual review.  Mr. Hall's salary may be adjusted by
action of the Board of Directors, based on Mr. Hall's performance,
the financial performance of the Company and the compensation paid
to a general counsel in comparable positions.  Those adjustments
will not reduce Mr. Hall's then-current annual base salary unless
he provides written consent.

In addition, Mr. Hall will be eligible for any bonus plan that is
deemed appropriate by the Board.  The bonus amount will be
determined by the Board, in its sole discretion, based upon, among
others, the following factors: (i) the fulfillment, during the
relevant year, of specific milestones and tasks delegated, for such
year, to Mr. Hall as set by Mr. Hall and the Company's president
and/or the Board, before the end of the first calendar quarter;
(ii) the evaluation of Mr. Hall by the Company's president and/or
the Board; (iii) the Company's financial, product and expected
progress and (iv) other pertinent matters relating to the Company's
business and valuation.  Any bonus will be payable within two and a
half (2 1/2) months following the end of the year for which the
bonus was earned.  The Compensation Committee of the Board of
Directors will have the sole discretion to pay any or all of the
annual bonus in the form of equity compensation.  Any such equity
compensation will be issued from the Company's 2017 Omnibus
Incentive Plan, and shall be fully vested upon payment.

In the event the Company terminates Mr. Hall 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. Hall
without cause (including death, disability or for constructive
termination) (each as defined in the employment agreement) which is
not in connection with a change of control, he will be entitled to
an amount equal to Mr. Hall's annualized Base Salary in effect on
the date of separation from service plus the full target annual
bonus percentage for the current fiscal year. The GC Severance
Amount will be paid in 12 equal consecutive monthly installments at
the monthly Base Salary rate in effect at the time of Mr. Hall's
termination, with such installments commencing within 60 days
following Mr. Hall's separation from service.  The GC Severance
Amount shall be in addition to Mr. Hall'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 the event the Company terminates Mr. Hall without cause in
connection with a change of control (as defined in the employment
agreement), he will be entitled to a Change of Control Severance in
place of the GC Severance Amount.  The CoC Severance Amount shall
be: (i) an amount equal to twice Mr. Hall's Base Salary and (ii) an
amount equal to the cash portion of Mr. Hall's target Annual Bonus
for the fiscal year in which the termination occurs (with it deemed
that all performance goals have been met at 100% of budget or plan)
multiplied by 150%.  For a period of 18 months, Mr. Hall may elect
coverage for, and the Company will reimburse Mr. Hall for, the
amount of his premium payments for group health coverage, if any,
elected by Mr. Hall pursuant to the Consolidated Omnibus Budget
Reconciliation Act of 1985, as amended; provided, however, that Mr.
Hall will be solely responsible for all matters relating to his
continuation of coverage pursuant to COBRA, including (without
limitation) his election of such coverage and his timely payment of
premiums.

Moreover, all options held by Mr. Hall will be subject to full
accelerated vesting on the date of termination without cause, in
both the standard Severance Amount and the CoC Severance Amount,
and the exercise period will be extended to three years from the
date of termination.  In order to terminate Mr. Hall for cause (or
for Mr. Hall to resign for constructive termination), the acting
party shall give notice to the other party 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 earlier refuses to effect the cure, the termination
shall then be deemed effective.

ORCHARD ACQUISITION: Full Payment for Unsecureds Under Joint Plan
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Orchard Acquisition Company and affiliates filed with the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware a disclosure
statement for their joint pre-packaged plan of reorganization dated
Dec. 1, 2017.

The Company is focused on providing direct-to-consumer access to
financing solutions through a variety of avenues, including
mortgage lending, structured settlement, annuity and lottery
payment purchasing, prepaid cards, and access to providers of
personal loans. The Company's direct-to-consumer businesses use
digital channels, television, direct mail and other channels to
offer access to financing solutions. The Company warehouses,
securitizes, sells or otherwise finances the assets that it
purchases in transactions that are structured to ultimately
generate cash proceeds to it that exceed the purchase price it paid
for those assets. The Company’s principal executive offices are
located at 1200 Morris Avenue, Suite 300, Chesterbrook,
Pennsylvania 19087.

The Plan contemplates, among other things, the occurrence of the
following Restructuring Transactions, pursuant to and subject to
the terms of the Plan and the RSA:

   * All Claims against and Equity Interests in any of the Debtors
are expected to be unimpaired and will be paid in full in cash,
paid or disputed in the ordinary course of business and in
accordance with applicable law as if the Chapter 11 Cases had not
been commenced, unimpaired and reinstated or treated on such other
terms as either (x) the applicable Debtor, with the consent of the
Required Consenting Lenders, or (y) the applicable Reorganized
Debtor, as applicable, and the Holder thereof may agree.

   * On the Effective Date, all Term Loan Claims will be terminated
and the liens securing such Term Loan Claims will be released, and,
in exchange therefor, each Term Lender shall receive its pro rata
share of (i) the Term Lender Cash Consideration, which is an amount
of cash equal to the lesser of (a) $45,000,000 and (b) the
aggregate amount such that at least the Required Pro Forma
Liquidity shall be maintained on the Company's balance sheet on the
Effective Date, and (ii) 95.5% of the New Common Equity in the form
of New Class A Common Stock; provided, that the percentage of the
New Common Equity allocable to all Holders of an Allowed Term Loan
Claim shall increase proportionally to the extent that Holders of
an Existing Partnership Interest elect to receive the Partnership
Cash Consideration (or, in the case of PubCo and the Blocker
Entity, as Holders of Existing Partnership Interests, to the extent
elected by Holders of Allowed TRA Claims on account of their Claims
against PubCo). On the Effective Date, the Existing Credit
Agreement shall be cancelled and be of no further force or effect.

   * On the Effective Date, all Existing Partnership Interests will
be canceled, and, in exchange therefor, each Holder of such Equity
Interests shall receive its pro rata share of the Partnership
Consideration. As provided in Article III.C(vii) of the Plan, the
Partnership Consideration will be in the form of, as elected by
each such holder, (i) Partnership Equity Consideration, which is a
percentage amount of New Common Equity equal to up to 4.5% of the
New Common Equity, (ii) Partnership Cash Consideration, which is an
amount of cash equal to up to 4.5% of $145,000,000 or (iii) a
combination of the Partnership Equity Consideration and the
Partnership Cash Consideration.

All Allowed General Unsecured Claims are Unimpaired by the Plan. At
the option of the Debtors or the Reorganized Debtors, as
applicable, (i) the Plan may leave unaltered the legal, equitable,
and contractual rights of a Holder of an Allowed General Unsecured
Claim, (ii) the Debtors or the Reorganized Debtors, as applicable,
may pay such Allowed General Unsecured Claim in full in Cash on the
Effective Date or as soon thereafter as is practicable, (iii) the
Debtors or the Reorganized Debtors, as applicable, may pay such
Allowed General Unsecured Claim in a manner agreed to by the Holder
of such Claim, or (iv) the Plan may reinstate the legal, equitable,
and contractual rights of the Holder of an Allowed General
Unsecured Claim.

The Reorganized Debtors will continue to exist as separate legal
entities, pursuant to the applicable organizational documents in
effect prior to the Effective Date, except to the extent such
organizational documents are amended by the Plan, without any
prejudice to any right to terminate such existence (whether by

PAPERWORKS INDUSTRIES: S&P Lowers CCR to 'CC' on Restructuring
--------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings lowered its corporate credit rating on
PaperWorks Industries Holding Corp. to 'CC' from 'CCC-' and placed
the rating on CreditWatch with negative implications.

S&P said, "At the same time, we lowered our issue-level rating on
the company's senior secured notes to 'C' from 'CC'. The '5'
recovery rating is unchanged and indicates our expectation of
modest recovery (10%-30%; rounded estimate: 20%) in the event of a
default."

On Dec. 21, 2017, PaperWorks Industries entered into a
restructuring support agreement with the majority holders
(representing approximately 87% in aggregate principal amount and
herein referred to as the supporting holders) of its $360 million
senior secured notes. As part of the agreement, the company will
issue $45 million in new term loans to the supporting holders in
exchange for the senior secured noteholders' claims and 100% of the
common equity in the restructured company. In addition, the
supporting holders will provide $70 million in debt financing, with
proceeds used to repay asset-backed lending (ABL) borrowings and
provide additional liquidity to the company.

The CreditWatch negative placement reflects that S&P expects to
lower its corporate credit rating on PaperWorks to 'SD' following
the completion of its debt restructuring, which it expects to be
completed by March 2018.


PARADISE AMUSEMENTS: U.S. Trustee Unable to Appoint Committee

PARETEUM CORP: Eliminates $8.1 Million Atalaya Senior Secured Debt
------------------------------------------------------------------
Pareteum Corporation said it has paid its lender $8.1 million, the
remaining balance of its senior secured loan from Atalaya Capital
Management and Corbin Capital.  Pareteum immediately improves cash
flows and prospects for growth by removing security interests of
the lenders and eliminating the loan, with its interest and
amortization, prior to the current maturity date of Dec. 31, 2018.

Hal Turner, executive chairman and principal executive officer of
Pareteum, added, "Our successful Debt repayment is one of the key
elements of the corporate turnaround at Pareteum which began in Q4
2015.  This debt financing package, originally implemented by the
Company's former management, was no longer optimized for the
exciting value-generating and growth stage of our business plans.
We thank the Lenders for their support during the challenging
restructure period.  We also look forward to focusing on the
continued sales surge by making investments in the business which
we expect to deliver maximum value for our equity investors."

accumulated deficit of $287,080,234 and has negative working
capital.  This, according to the auditors, raises substantial doubt
about the Company's ability to continue as a going concern.

Dec. 31, 2016, following a net loss of $5 million for the year

PARSLEY ENERGY: S&P Alters Outlook to Pos on Increasing Production
------------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings affirmed its 'B+' corporate credit rating on
Parsley Energy LLC and revised the rating outlook to positive from
stable.

S&P said, "At the same time, we affirmed our 'BB-' issue-level
rating with a recovery of '2' indicating our expectation of
substantial (70%-90%; 85% cap) recovery in the event of a default.


"The positive outlook reflects Parsley's reserve and production
growth and our expectation the company will continue to expand
development of its acreage without adding significant debt leverage
to its financial risk profile. Although the company's overall debt
recently increased with its October debt issuance, Parsley has made
a number of equity offerings over the year to finance acquisitions
and add cash to the balance sheet to prefund capital spending,
allowing the company to maintain a minimal draw on its
reserve-based lending facility. The company's proved properties
continue to grow with their aggressive drilling program. Overall,
we expect the company's production mix of oil, natural gas, and
natural gas liquids to remain consistent with prior years,
supporting the company's above-average profitability.

"The positive rating outlook on Parsley reflects the potential to
upgrade the company over the next 12 months if it can successfully
increase its production and reserves consistent with higher-rated
peers while maintaining FFO to debt of at least 20% on a sustained
basis.

"We could revise the outlook to stable if Parsley's growth and
development does not proceed as expected. Such a scenario could
take place if commodity prices fell well below our expectations and
Parsley reduced its drilling activity. Additionally, we could
revise the outlook to stable if the company assumes a substantially
more aggressive capital spending program than we currently forecast
resulting in increased negative free cash flow and higher debt
levels."

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.

As reported by the TCR on Dec. 7, 2017, S&P Global Ratings raised
its corporate credit rating on Lafayette, La.-based exploration and
production company PetroQuest Energy Inc. to 'CCC+' from 'CCC'.
The rating outlook is negative.  "The upgrade reflects our
assessment that PetroQuest is likely to generate sufficient cash
flow and, along with continued access to its multidraw term loan,
have sufficient liquidity to meet cash interest requirements
through 2018.  The company has the option to make PIK interest
payments on its second-lien senior secured PIK notes through August
2018 at 1% cash interest and 9% PIK.

RAPID AMERICAN: Bid to Seal Portions of Midland Sale Motion Nixed
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Stuart M. Bernstein of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of New York entered an order denying
Rapid-American Corp.'s ex parte motion to file under seal portions
of its motion to sell its Midland Insurance Company claims.

The debtor sought to sell two claims that have been allowed in the
aggregate amount of $10 million in the liquidation proceedings of
Midland. The debtor has filed an ex parte motion to file portions
of its sale motion as well as the entire sale agreement and annexed
exhibits under seal, notwithstanding that certain of the annexed
exhibits are already filed on the Court's docket and/or are
patently non-confidential. According to the sealing motion, the
information is confidential because the debtor and the purchaser,
presumably at the latter's assistance, "have agreed that keeping
the name of the Purchaser, the terms of the sale, specifically, the
purchase price, confidential, are necessary to maintain the value
of the transaction."

Section 107(b) contains an exception to public disclosure to
protect, inter alia, "commercial information." "Commercial
information has been defined as information which would cause 'an
unfair advantage to competitors by providing them information as to
the commercial operations of the debtor.'" The moving party bears
the burden of demonstrating that the information it is seeking to
protect from public viewing is both commercial and confidential.

The Court asserts that the debtor has failed to sustain its burden.
In a sense, all information relating to a commercial transaction is
"commercial information." Moreover, the parties insist on
confidentiality. Nevertheless, "[t]he 'commercial information'
exception is not intended to offer a safe harbor for those who
crave privacy or secrecy for its own sake. Instead, it protects
parties from the release of information that could cause them harm
or give competitors an unfair advantage." The debtor has not even
made the effort to show that the disclosure of the redacted
information will harm either party or place either party at a
competitive disadvantage. Even if such evidence existed, the
concern could be overcome simply by redacting the name of the
purchaser while including other relevant information, specifically,
the sale price. Moreover, the proposed sale is to be private
although the evidence submitted by the debtor shows that other
parties were interested in purchasing the claim. At a minimum,
those other parties should receive notice of the proposed sale and
offered an opportunity to outbid the proposed purchaser.

RLE INDUSTRIES: Unsecureds to Get 10% Under Joint Liquidation Plan
------------------------------------------------------------------
RLE Industries, LLC, and NEI Industries, Inc., filed with the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York a disclosure
statement in connection with their joint chapter 11 liquidating
plan dated Dec. 12, 2017.

During the course of the Debtor's Chapter 11 Case, the Debtors
wound down their business affairs and sold its remaining assets. As
a result of the Sale Proceeds and the Plan Funder Contribution, the
Debtors expect to have sufficient funds on hand on the Effective
Date to satisfy all administrative, Secured, and Priority Claims
and ultimately provide an approximate 10% distribution on a pro
rata basis to allowed Class 3 general unsecured creditors.

The Debtors have been in negotiation with Scott Koenig and the
Estate of Marvin Koenig, current and former principals of the
Debtors to assist in the funding of the amounts needed to confirm
the Plan.

After arms-length negotiation, the Plan Funder has agreed to
provide the following funding and other consideration to the
Debtors under the Plan:

   (a) the sum of $325,000, in Cash, paid by the Plan Funder to the
Disbursing Agent on behalf of the Estates on or before the
Confirmation Date;

   (b) the assumption and payment of (i) $1,400,000 obligation owed
by the Debtors and guaranteed by the Plan Funder to Chase as Class
1 Secured creditor, less $100,000 payable by the Debtors to Chase
under the Plan;

   (c) the payment of $220,000 to Bizfi in full and final
satisfaction of all of Merchant Cash and Capital, LLC d/b/a Bizfi's
Funding Claims against the Debtors and the Plan Funder; and

   (d) the waiver of any and all Claims of the Plan Funder against
the Debtors, including but not limited to all Claims for loans made
to the Debtors, or Claims for subrogation and/or indemnification
arising out of the Plan Funder Contribution. The waiver of the loan
Claims is believed to exceed $1,000,000.

In consideration and exchange for the Plan Funder Contribution, the
Debtors, upon and subject to confirmation of the Plan, will be
deemed to waived and released any and all Causes of Action against
the Plan Funder. The Debtors believe that the consideration being
given under the Plan Funder Contribution (in excess of $2,800,000
in total consideration) far exceeds any potential Causes of Action
that the Debtors may have asserted against the Plan Funder.

The Plan will be funded with the Sale Proceeds, the Plan Funder
Contribution and net recoveries from Causes of Action. These funds
are expected to total on the Effective Date approximately
$495,000.

ROBSTOWN CITY, TX: Moody's Corrects December 5 Release
------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service corrected a press release on the City of
Robstown, Texas, dated December 5, 2017.  The first sentence of the
press release was changed to the following to include the issuer
rating: "Moody's Investors Service has confirmed the Ba2 rating on
the City of Robstown, TX's $6.9 million in outstanding rated debt
and affirmed the issuer rating at Ba2."

The revised release is as follows:

Moody's Investors Service has confirmed the Ba2 rating on the City
of Robstown, TX's $6.9 million in outstanding rated debt and
affirmed the issuer rating at Ba2. The outlook is negative. The
review of the city's rating initiated on September 22, 2017 is now
concluded.

The confirmation of the Ba2 rating reflects the limited and
manageable damage that occurred as a result of the recent
hurricane.

The rating further reflects the city's very weak financial
position, high volatility in key revenue streams due to economic
concentration in the oil and gas industry, high tax rate coupled
with well below average wealth indices, significant reliance on the
separately governed utility system to fund core operations, and an
elevated debt burden with an above-average amortization period.

Finally, the rating considers the modestly-sized and growing tax
base and manageable pension burden.

Rating Outlook

The negative outlook reflects the city's poor prospects to build a
reserve over the near term absent successful land sales of
city-owned property.

Factors that Could Lead to an Upgrade

Trend of increasing reserves

Balanced operations without reliance on the utility system or asset
sales

Diversification of the local economy leading to stability in key
revenue sources

Factors that Could Lead to a Downgrade

Inability to generate positive reserves over the very near term

Legal Security

The bonds are direct obligations of the city, payable from ad
valorem taxes levied against all taxable property within the limits
prescribed by law.

Use of Proceeds

Not applicable.

Obligor Profile

The City of Robstown, TX is located in Nueces County, approximately
18 miles from downtown Corpus Christi, and within the Eagle Ford
Shale. The city's economy is highly tied to the oil and gas
industry. The current population is approximately 11,600.


ROSETTA GENOMICS: Will be Acquired by Genoptix for $10M in Cash
---------------------------------------------------------------
Genoptix, Inc., and Rosetta Genomics Ltd. jointly announced that
they have entered into a definitive merger agreement under which
Genoptix will acquire all of the outstanding shares of Rosetta
Genomics for a total gross purchase price of $10 million.  After
deducting expected payments for outstanding debt, convertible
debentures, warrant termination payments, professional fees,
expenses and other items, this purchase price equates to an amount
that is preliminarily estimated to be $0.60, in cash, for each
ordinary share of Rosetta Genomics outstanding at closing. Genoptix
is a portfolio company of Ampersand Capital Partners and 1315
Capital.

Genoptix is also providing a secured bridge loan facility of up to
$1.8 million to fund the operations of Rosetta Genomics through the
closing of this transaction.

This merger has been unanimously approved by the Board of Directors
of both companies, and the closing is expected to occur during the
first quarter of 2018, subject to approval by Rosetta Genomics'
shareholders and customary closing conditions.  In connection with
the proposed transaction, Rosetta Genomics intends to file a proxy
statement with the Securities and Exchange Commission.
Shareholders of Rosetta Genomics are urged to carefully review the
proxy statement, when available, because it will contain important
information about the proposed transaction and the estimated
closing purchase price for each ordinary share.

Upon closing, trading in shares of Rosetta Genomics on the Nasdaq
Capital Market will cease, and Rosetta Genomics will become a
wholly owned subsidiary of Genoptix.

"After a comprehensive review of strategic alternatives that
included financings, acquisitions, mergers, asset monetization and
corporate partnerships, we determined that this proposed
transaction with Genoptix is in the best interest of all Rosetta
Genomics stakeholders, including our equity holders.  Our current
cash position is sufficient to fund operations only until the end
of 2017, and given our current market capitalization, potential for
pending delisting from the Nasdaq Capital Market and the difficult
financing environment for microcap molecular diagnostics companies,
we do not believe we could raise sufficient capital to continue as
a going concern for an extended period of time," stated Kenneth A.
Berlin, president and chief executive officer of Rosetta Genomics.

"As a leader in cancer diagnostics with a more significant
infrastructure, Genoptix is in a position to deploy the resources
necessary to accelerate the growth of RosettaGX Reveala ("Reveal"),
as well as add our solid tumor testing services to their existing
product portfolio," added Mr. Berlin.

Joseph M. Limber, president and chief executive officer of
Genoptix, said, "The acquisition of Rosetta Genomics will broaden
our product offering in oncology diagnostics, particularly in the
solid tumor area.  We believe that there is a significant
opportunity in the diagnosis of thyroid cancer utilizing Reveal and
we intend to leverage our world-class commercial capabilities to
become a leader in this space.  Furthermore, Rosetta's cutting edge
microRNA-based technology will be the foundation of many more
diagnostic tests to be incorporated into Genoptix' oncology
portfolio."

Cantor Fitzgerald is serving as financial adviser to Rosetta
Genomics on this transaction.

SAEXPLORATION HOLDINGS: Has Restructuring Deal With Noteholders
---------------------------------------------------------------
SAExploration Holdings, Inc., has entered into a restructuring
support agreement with holders that beneficially own in excess of
85% in principal amount of SAE's 10.000% Second Lien Notes due
2019.  Pursuant to the Restructuring Support Agreement, the
Supporting Holders have agreed to exchange their Existing Notes for
a combination of common stock, convertible preferred stock and
warrants, subject to the terms and conditions of the Restructuring
Support Agreement.  SAE will continue the operation of its business
in the ordinary course and honor all obligations to its trade
vendors in accordance with their terms.  SAE also expects to
continue to have access to all necessary funds under its revolver,
subject to the consent of its lender, and to maintain obligations
under its term loan on an agreed basis with its lenders.  In
connection with the restructuring, SAE has also reached an
agreement in principle to increase the face amount of its revolver
to $20 million.  SAE's common stock will remain outstanding,
subject to dilution as a result of the securities to be issued in
the exchange offer.

Jeff Hastings, Chairman and CEO of SAE, commented, "We have spent
the last year and a half working collaboratively with our
stakeholders to de-lever our balance sheet and provide additional
liquidity during a very difficult market.  Given the prolonged
nature of the industry downturn and to more comprehensively realign
our entire capital structure, we engaged our bond holders to
discuss a longer-term solution.  The agreement to restructure the
Existing Notes will enhance our immediate liquidity by eliminating
costly interest payments, provide meaningful financial flexibility,
and make us more competitive in the current business environment.
Most importantly, we believe this exchange is necessary to position
us for long-term growth and sustainable success.  As part of the
restructuring, our senior management team has agreed to amend
certain components of its compensation to reduce cash expenses and
more fully align management with the Company's future success.  We
are grateful for the continued support and confidence of all our
stakeholders, especially that of our bond holders, customers,
vendors, and loyal and highly-skilled employees, all of whom have
gone to great lengths to find solutions to solidify SAE's future."

The Restructuring Support Agreement contemplates that SAE will
commence an exchange offer to exchange the Existing Notes and, to
the extent held by eligible holders of record, the remaining
10.000% Senior Secured Notes due 2019 for a combination of common
stock, convertible preferred stock and warrants.  In connection
with the exchange offer, the Company will also commence a consent
solicitation to make certain proposed amendments to the terms of
the indentures governing the Notes to (i) eliminate substantially
all of the restrictive covenants in the indentures governing the
Notes, (ii) delete certain events of default and (iii) release all
of the collateral securing the obligations of the Company and the
guarantors under the Notes.  There are various closing conditions
contemplated under the Restructuring Support Agreement including,
among other things, the negotiation of definitive documentation and
a minimum tender condition of 95% in principal amount of the
Existing Notes in the exchange offer and consent solicitation.
Pursuant to the Restructuring Support Agreement, the Supporting
Holders have agreed to tender all of their Existing Notes and to
deliver corresponding consents.

Assuming implementation of the restructuring transaction, SAE
expects that it will have eliminated approximately $87 million in
principal amount of outstanding debt and reduced its annual
interest payment burden by approximately $8.7 million.

Although SAE intends to pursue the restructuring transaction in
accordance with the terms set forth in the Restructuring Support
Agreement, there can be no assurance that SAE will be successful in
completing a restructuring or any other similar transaction on the
terms set forth in the Restructuring Support Agreement, on
different terms or at all.

                         Backlog Update

As of Dec. 15, 2017, SAE's backlog was approximately $49.7 million.
Bids outstanding on the same date, including certain potential
direct award negotiations, totaled approximately $469.1 million,
which is an increase of 321% since Sept. 30, 2017.  Approximately
52% and 48% of the backlog represents land-based projects in North
America and South America, respectively.  SAE currently expects all
of the projects in its backlog on Nov. 30, 2017, except for
approximately $1.0 million of work during the last month of 2017,
to be completed during the first half of 2018. Approximately 83% of
the bids outstanding on Dec. 15, 2017 are for projects expected to
be performed during 2018, should SAE be successful in securing
these bids, with the balance likely to occur in 2019.

The estimations of realization from the backlog and the estimations
of timing for bids outstanding can be impacted by a number of
factors, however, including deteriorating industry conditions,
customer delays or cancellations, permitting or project delays and
environmental conditions.

     preferred stock and warrants.  In connection with the
     exchange offer, the Issuer will also commence a consent
     solicitation to make certain proposed amendments to the terms

     RSA, the 2017 Supporting Holders have agreed to tender all of
     their Second Lien Notes and to deliver corresponding
     consents.

   * As a result of the issuance of shares of common stock, shares

     of convertible preferred stock, and warrants pursuant to the
     exchange offer, assuming that all outstanding Second Lien
     Notes and at least $1.25 million in aggregate principal
     amount of Stub Notes are tendered and accepted for exchange
     in the exchange offer and assuming conversion of the
     convertible preferred stock and exercise of the warrants, the

     Issuer expects to issue to the tendering holders of Notes
     approximately 93.4% of the outstanding shares of common stock

    (including to 2017 Supporting Holders) and expects current
     equity to hold approximately 6.6% of the outstanding shares
     of common stock, as of the closing of the exchange offer,
     without giving effect to any subsequent issuances.

SCIENTIFIC GAMES: Hikes BofA Credit Facility by $40 Million
-----------------------------------------------------------
Scientific Games International, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of
Scientific Games Corporation, entered into a joinder agreement on
Dec. 21, 2017, with an additional commitment lender with respect to
the credit agreement, dated as of Oct. 18, 2013, as amended, by and
among SGI, as borrower, the Company, as a guarantor, the subsidiary
guarantors party thereto, Bank of America, N.A., as administrative
agent, and the lenders and other agents.  Pursuant to the joinder
agreement, the amount of the Company's revolving credit
availability under the Credit Agreement was increased by $40
million to $596.2 million through Oct. 18, 2018, with a step-down
to $421.7 million until the maturity on Oct. 18, 2020.

                    About Scientific Games

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."

SUNQUEST PROPERTIES: S&P Cuts Rating on 2005 Housing Bonds to BB
----------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings lowered its rating to 'BB' from 'BB+' on
Louisiana Housing Finance Agency's (Peppermill I and II Apartments
project) series 2005 multifamily housing revenue bonds, issued for
Sunquest Properties Inc. The bonds are backed by a mortgage loan
secured by an irrevocable standby Fannie Mae credit enhancement
facility. The outlook is stable.

"This action reflects our view of the project's inability to
sufficiently pay full and timely debt service on the bonds, coupled
with its reliance on short-term, market-rate investments," said S&P
Global Ratings credit analyst Jose Cruz.

The rating reflects S&P's view of these weaknesses:

-- Revenues from mortgage debt service payments and investment
earnings that are insufficient to cover full and timely debt
service on the bonds plus fees until maturity;

-- Debt service coverage (DSC) that is expected to fall below a
level commensurate with an investment-grade rating from Oct. 1,
2036, onward;

-- An asset-to-liability ratio that is projected to fall below
1.0x from Oct. 1, 2017, onward; and

-- Insufficient assets to cover reinvestment risk based on a
15-day minimum notice period required for special redemptions in
the event of prepayment.

Offsetting the above-mentioned weaknesses, in S&P's view, are these
credit strengths:

-- The very strong credit quality of the Fannie Mae credit
enhancement facility, which we consider 'AA+' eligible, and

-- The investments held in Wells Fargo's Advantage 100% Treasury
Money Market Fund (AAAm).

S&P said, "The downgrade follows our review of updated financial
information for the project, factoring our stressed reinvestment
rate assumptions for all scenarios in accordance with our criteria,
along with the project's reliance on short-term, market-rate
investments.

"The stable outlook reflects our opinion that, while the issue is
susceptible to fluctuations in short-term, market-rate investment
income, we expect it to perform in a manner commensurate with a
'BB' rating over the two-year outlook period. We could take further
negative rating action during the outlook period if the project's
financial information, based on our stressed reinvestment rate
assumptions, leads us to believe it will be unable to meet all bond
costs from transaction revenues, or if projected DSC ratios fall
below a level in line with an investment-grade rating. Conversely,
should DSC improve to a level commensurate with a higher rating
category, we could raise the rating."


SUNRISE REAL: Posts $3.3 Million Net Income in Q1 2016
------------------------------------------------------
Sunrise Real Estate Group, Inc. filed with the Securities and
Exchange Commission its quarterly report on Form 10-Q reporting net
income of $3.31 million on $665,381 of net revenues for the three
months ended March 31, 2016, compared to a net loss of $2.01
million on $1.39 million of net revenues for the three months ended
March 31, 2015.

As of March 31, 2016, Sunrise Real had $110.57 million in total
assets, $116.98 million in total liabilities and a total
shareholders' deficit of $6.40 million.

In the first quarter of 2016, the Company's principal sources of
cash were revenues from its agency sales and property management
business, as well as the cash receipt from sale of the office
property of fixed assets.  Most of the Company's cash resources
were used to fund its property development investment and revenue
related expenses, such as salaries and commissions paid to the
sales force, daily administrative expenses and the maintenance of
regional offices.

Sunrise Real ended the period with a cash position of $5,917,825.

The Company's operating activities used cash in the amount of
$751,278, which was primarily attributable to the real estate
property development.

The Company's investing activities provided cash resources of
$8,154,065, which was primarily attributable to the disposal of
office property of fixed assets.

The Company's financing activities used cash resources of
$2,264,344, which was primarily attributable to repayment of
promissory notes and bank loan.

The potential cash needs for 2016 would be the repayments of the
Company's bank loans and promissory notes, the rental guarantee
payments and promissory deposits for various property projects as
well as our development projects in Wuhan, GXL project and Linyi.

As of March 31, 2016, the Company has a working capital deficiency,
accumulated deficit and significant short-term debt obligations
currently in default or maturing in less than one year.  These
factors, the Company said, raise substantial doubts about its
ability to continue as a going concern.

"Management believes that the Company will generate sufficient cash
flows to fund its operations and to meet its obligations on timely
basis for the next twelve months by successful implementation of
its business plans, obtaining continued support from its lenders to
rollover debts when they became due, and securing additional
financing as needed," according to the Quarterly Report.  "There is
no assurance that the Company will be able to obtain additional
financing on acceptable terms and any financing that the Company
does obtain will be sufficient to meet its needs in the long term.
Even if the Company is able to obtain additional financing, it may
contain undue restrictions on our operations in the case of debt
financing, or cause substantial dilution for our shareholders in
the case of equity financing.  If events or circumstances occur
that the Company is unable to successfully implement its business
plans, fails to obtain continued supports from its lenders or to
secure additional financing, or incurs significant unplanned cash
outlays, the Company may be required to suspend operations or cease
business entirely."

SYNCHRONOSS TECHNOLOGIES: S&P Withdraws BB- Rating
--------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings withdrew its corporate credit ratings on
Bridgewater, N.J.-based Synchronoss Technologies Inc. (BB-/Watch
Neg/--) upon notification by the company, and lacking sufficient
information of quality. S&P withdrew its issue-level ratings on
Synchronoss' first-lien term loan, as the debt has been fully
repaid using the proceeds obtained from the sale of Synchronoss'
Intralinks business. In addition, the revolving credit facility has
been cancelled and thus the issue-level rating has been withdrawn.
The ratings on the senior unsecured convertible notes have also
been withdrawn due to the withdrawal of the corporate credit
rating.

WARTBURG COLLEGE: Fitch Affirms BB- Rating on $84.6MM College Bonds
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed the 'BB-' rating on approximately $84.6
million private college revenue refunding bonds series 2015 issued
by the Iowa Higher Education Loan Authority on behalf of Wartburg
College.

The Rating Outlook is Negative.

SECURITY

The series 2015 private college facility revenue bonds are a
general obligation of the college, secured by a lien on revenues of
the college and a mortgage on the core campus. Additionally, the
bonds are supported by a debt service reserve fund equal to maximum
annual debt service (MADS).

KEY RATING DRIVERS

DETERIORATING OPERATING PERFORMANCE: The Negative Outlook reflects
deficit financial operations, as calculated by Fitch, driven by
persistent declines in enrollment through fiscal 2017 and a lag in
the execution of spending reductions sufficient to achieve balanced
operating results. Deficit operations continued in fiscal 2017, but
were improved from the prior year.

ONGOING DEMAND PRESSURES: Enrollment marked modest gains in fiscal
2018 (fall 2017) following four consecutive years of declines.
However, tuition discounting has contributed to declining net
student revenues through fiscal 2017. Demographic pressures in
Wartburg's highly competitive regional market will likely continue
to pressure both enrollment and net revenue generation.

VERY HIGH DEBT BURDEN: MADS of $6.2 million equaled a very high
12.9% of fiscal 2017 operating revenues, as calculated by Fitch.
Positively, Fitch-calculated MADS coverage from operations
improved, but remained very slim at 1.0x in fiscal 2017.

MODERATE BALANCE SHEET CUSHION: Balance sheet resources remain a
strength for Wartburg, and help support the current rating.
Liquidity ratios were stronger than peer colleges in fiscal 2017,
even with some deterioration from fiscal 2016. Wartburg also
benefits from a solid history of philanthropy and has exceeded the
goal of its most recent capital campaign.

RATING SENSITIVITIES

OPERATING IMPROVEMENT: Wartburg College's failure to steadily
improve its operating performance and achieve at least
sum-sufficient debt service coverage (as calculated by Fitch) in
fiscal 2018 will pressure the rating and lead to a downgrade.

RESOURCE STABILITY: A decline in Wartburg's balance sheet resources
could pressure the rating.

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
