Acer Therapeutics Inc. announced that the underwriters of its
public offering of common stock have partially exercised their
over-allotment option by the purchase of an additional 130,000

payable by Acer.  After giving effect to the partial exercise of
the over-allotment option, the total number of shares sold by Acer
in the offering increased to 1,046,667 shares and the total gross
proceeds increased to $12.56 million.

Acer intends to use the net proceeds from this offering to fund its
research and development efforts, to seek regulatory approval for

general corporate purposes, including working capital and other
general and administrative purposes.

William Blair & Company, L.L.C. acted as sole book-running manager

                    About Acer Therapeutics

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

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

Opexa incurred a net loss of $7.98 million for the year ended Dec.
31, 2016, compared to a net loss of $12.01 million for the year
ended Dec. 31, 2015.  As of Sept. 30, 2017, the Company had $17.01
million in total assets, $2.25 million in total liabilities and
$14.76 million in total stockholders' equity.

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

Acer Therapeutics said in its quarterly report for the period ended
Sept. 30, 2017, that the Company has experienced recurring losses
since inception.

"The Company plans to raise capital through equity and/or debt
financings.  There is no assurance, however, that the Company will
be able to raise sufficient capital to fund its operations on terms
that are acceptable, or that its operations will ever be
profitable.
  
"There is substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue
as a going concern within one year after the date that the
accompanying financial statements are available to be issued and
these financial statements do not include any adjustments relating
to the recoverability of recorded asset amounts that might be
necessary as a result of the above uncertainty.  Based on available
resources, the Company believes that its cash and cash equivalents
currently on hand are sufficient to fund its anticipated operating
and capital requirements through the first half of 2018."


ACTIVECARE INC: Signs 3-Year Monitoring Deal With Cleveland Clinic
------------------------------------------------------------------
ActiveCare, Inc., has entered into a Services Agreement with the
Cleveland Clinic Foundation d.b.a. Cleveland Clinic, an Ohio

defined in the Agreement).  In addition, at such time the Cleveland
Clinic Accountable Care Organization will receive a shared savings
payment from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, CCACO
shall share such savings with the Company based on a formula
defined in the Agreement.

Cleveland Clinic may, by written notice to the Company, terminate
the Agreement, any purchase order or any portion of a purchase
order if the Company (i) is in material breach of any of the terms
and conditions of the Agreement or any Purchase Order, which breach
in not cured within 30 days after notification of such breach, (ii)
terminates or suspends its business, becomes insolvent, or becomes
subject to any bankruptcy or insolvency proceeding under Federal or
State law.

Cleveland Clinic further may terminate the Agreement, any Purchase
Order or any portion of any Purchase Order for convenience upon 90

contract of Company, or non-cancellable purchase order to a third
party, entered into for the benefit of Cleveland Clinic.

ADVANCE SPECIALTY: Seeks Authorization to Use Cash Collateral
-------------------------------------------------------------
Advance Specialty Care, LLC, seeks authorization from the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of California to use the
cash collateral generated by its business until issuance of a
further order from the Court or confirmation of a plan of
reorganization.

The Debtor is engaged in the business of providing home health care
services. In order for the Debtor to continue operating its
business, the Debtor requires immediate use of the cash collateral
in which the Department of the Treasury – Internal Revenue
Service and the State of California Employment Development
Department ("EDD") has or may claim one or more tax liens.

As set forth in the Projected Cash Flow Statement for the First
90-day Period, the Debtor's average expenses are projected in the
aggregate sum of $497,085.40 per month. The expenses include such
ordinary and necessary operating expenses as rent, accounting fees,
salaries and wages, insurance, marketing, supplies, taxes and other
ordinary and necessary operating expenses.

According to its Proof of Claim, the IRS has a secured tax claim in
the amount of $1,777,334.

The Debtor submits that the interests of the IRS and EDD are
adequate protected because, as set for in the Budget, the use of
the post-petition gross income generated by the Debtor's is
projected to result in a net profit to the Debtor every month.

To the extent the Court determines that the interests of the IRS
and/or the EDD are not adequately protected, the Debtor can provide
a replacement lien on after acquired assets, such as accounts
receivable, to the extent the use of cash collateral results in the
decrease of value of the tax collectors' interest in the property
and/or periodic cash payments in an amount to be determined by the
Court.

A full-text copy of the Debtor's Motion is available at:

AMG INTERNATIONAL: Needs Time to Evaluate Restructuring Options
---------------------------------------------------------------
AMG International, Inc. requests the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of New Jersey to extend the exclusive periods within which
to file a plan of reorganization and to solicit affirmative votes
for the plan for a period of 60 days, or through and including
March 31, 2018 and May 30, 2018, respectively.

Without the requested extension, the Debtor's Exclusive Filing
Period and Exclusive Solicitation Period are currently scheduled to
expire on January 30, 2018 and March 31, 2018, respectively.

Although its case is not large, the Debtor submits that as of the
petition date, it had warehouses leased in five different states.
Additionally, the Debtor purchases product from overseas and
distributes domestically and internationally.

The Debtor relates that since the petition date, it has closed two
warehouses to reduce costs and, consequently, continues to monitor
and evaluate operations.  In evaluating the operations and the
impacts of the Chapter 11 filing, the Debtor is contemplating
reorganization.

Furthermore, the Debtor commenced an adversary proceeding against a
supplier in possession of molds used to manufacture product. The
Court recently granted the Debtor's request for injunctive relief
pertaining to turnover of property of the estate. A hearing to
determine the validity of an alleged lien against molds is
currently scheduled for January 30.

The Debtor claims that it has endeavored to cooperate with
representatives of France Sport, S.A. and the Official Committee of
Unsecured Creditors.  France Sport, S.A. holds a first-priority
lien against substantially all of the Debtor's assets, to secure a
claim in the amount of at least $2,860,000.

The Debtor submits that it has provided variance reports, is
current on filing monthly operating reports, and has provided other
information relating to operations and financial dealings.  The
Debtor has cooperated in an effort to avoid costly discovery.
Additionally, the Debtor's counsel has participated on several
calls with counsel for the Committee to answer questions pertaining
to the Debtor, its operations and potential restructuring
alternatives.

The Debtor also relates that it has recently met with the Committee
together with their representatives, and the parties continue with
discussions regarding restructuring options.

Joe M. Supple, Esq., serves as the Debtor's bankruptcy counsel.


APPVION INC: Seeks March 30 Plan Exclusivity Extension
------------------------------------------------------
Appvion, Inc. and its affiliated debtors ask the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the District of Delaware for a 60-day extension of the
exclusivity periods for filing a chapter 11 plan and obtaining
acceptances of the plan, through March 30, 2018 and May 29, 2018,
respectively.

The Debtors relate they are poised to formulate a plan of
reorganization and, indeed, have already begun consulting with
their key constituents to bring these chapter 11 cases to a swift
and efficient conclusion. The Debtors have been working with their
key constituencies since well before the chapter 11 filing toward a
solution that will address the company's leverage and liquidity,
while best positioning the company for the future.

Despite the best efforts of the Debtors and their advisors, the
Debtors and their key constituents were unable to complete
negotiations towards a consensual plan before the Petition Date due
to the complexity of their business, and as such, additional time
is needed before a reorganization strategy can be completed and
implemented.

The Debtors relate that since the commencement of these cases, they
have worked diligently to stabilize their business operations.
Simultaneously, the Debtors and their professionals have also
worked with the DIP Lenders and Second Lien Lenders, as well as the
Committee, toward a restructuring of the Debtors' business
operations. The Debtors contend, however, that this process is
still continuing, as are their efforts to review all of their
contractual relationships and business operations so that they can
emerge from these cases as a healthy, viable company as soon as
practical.

During this process, the Debtors claim that they continue to meet
their statutory obligations under the Bankruptcy Code, the
Bankruptcy Rules and applicable local rules and guidelines. Despite
the progress that has been made, the Debtors acknowledge that the
practical realities of these cases dictate an extension of the
statutorily prescribed deadlines to file and solicit acceptances of
a chapter 11 plan.

While the Debtors and their key stakeholders were hopeful that the
chapter 11 process would be brief, the Debtors tell the Court that
a number of issues have arisen that have delayed, but in no way
jeopardized, the ability of the Debtors to reorganize their
operations.

The Debtors relate that in the weeks following the commencement of
these cases, the Debtors were forced to deal with a myriad of
demands placed upon them by their trade suppliers, both in the
United States and around the world. In addition, the chapter 11
process negatively impacted certain aspects of the Debtors'
business operations, which, together with continued negative market
conditions, required them to re-forecast their projected results of
operations for not only the last few months of 2017, but for 2018
as well. This process delayed diligence and negotiations with the
Debtors' key stakeholders, which re-commenced in earnest following
the release of revised financial information and forward looking
statements in late November.

The Debtors contend that with the initial instability created by
the chapter 11 filing behind them, and the reorganization well
underway, the Debtors now need time to complete the process that
was begun prior to the commencement of these chapter 11 cases.

The Debtors also note that the deadline for submitting general
unsecured claims (February 14, 2018) will not have passed before
the statutorily prescribed deadline to file a plan of
reorganization. Currently, the Debtors are not in a position to

--------------------------------------------------------------
West Edge Halo, Inc., Brentwood Financial Company, LLC, Golden
Living Health Management, Inc., Madison Reality Equities, LLC, and
Steve Martinson (the "Moving Creditors") -- creditors of Baldwin
Park Congregate Home, Inc. -- in conjunction with the U.S.
Trustee's Motion to Convert, Dismiss or Appoint a Chapter 11
Trustee, ask the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of
California to direct the appointment of a Chapter 11 Trustee for
the Debtor.

At the Court's most recent hearing on the Trustee's Motion, held on
November 16, 2017, the Court ordered that there be no further
briefing on the Trustee's Motion, other the permitting a
supplemental brief by the Office of the U.S. Trustee, and a timely
reply by the Debtor. The Office of the U.S. Trustee filed its
Fourth Supplement on November 24. On December 1, the Debtor filed
its Response to the Fourth Supplement.

The Moving Creditors have filed four separate declarations: (1)
Declaration Of Gary Langendoen In Support Of Motion To Appoint
Chapter 11 Trustee And Commitment To Provide Post-Petition
Financing, attaching a proposed financing agreement to provide
$150,000 of financing to a chapter 11 trustee, with final terms to
be negotiated by a Chapter 11 trustee; (2) Declaration Of Steve
Martinson: In Support Of Motion To Appoint Chapter 11 Trustee And
Commitment To Enter Into A Management Operation Transfer Agreement,
attaching a proposed Management Operation Transfer Agreement, with
final terms to be negotiated by Chapter 11 trustee; (3) Declaration
of Dan Salceda; and the Declaration of Georgina Rodriguez.

These Declarations will establish that:

      (1) appointment of a Chapter 11 Trustee is in the best
interests of the Debtor's estate and its creditors and is superior
to dismissal of the chapter 11 case;

      (2) appointment of Chapter 11 Trustee is consistent with the
relief sought by the
Office of the U.S. Trustee;

      (3) appointment of a Chapter 11 Trustee is the outcome sought
by the holders of all secured debt in the case other than the
Internal Revenue Service, preserves the status of the Internal
Revenue Service under the proposed financing, and is supported by
the majority of the active creditors in this case; and

      (4) appointment of a Chapter 11 trustee is viable, having
demonstrated the availability of financing (priming only those
secured creditors which consent, while preserving the secured
status of the Internal Revenue Service), and the presence of a
viable operator of the Debtor's facility under a proposed
"Management Operation Transfer Agreement."

BECTON DICKINSON: Moody's Assigns 'Ba1' Corp. Family Rating
-----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded Becton, Dickinson and Company
(BD) to speculative grade and assigned a Ba1 Corporate Family
Rating and a Ba1-PD Probability of Default Rating. Moody's
downgraded the company's senior unsecured notes to Ba1 (LGD 4) from
Baa2 (review for downgrade) and its commercial paper rating to Not
Prime from Prime-2. Moody's also assigned a Speculative Grade
Liquidity Rating of SGL-1. Additionally, Moody's affirmed the Ba1
(LGD 4) ratings on debt securities and a bank revolving credit
facility that were issued earlier in 2017 to pre-fund the Bard
acquisition. The rating outlook is stable. The rating actions
conclude the review for downgrade that commenced on April 23,
2017.

"The rating downgrade results from the expected completion of BD's
acquisition of C.R. Bard, Inc. ("Bard") following receipt of all
requisite approvals in a transaction that initially valued Bard at
approximately $25.2 billion," stated Scott Tuhy, a Senior Vice
President at Moody's. The transaction resulted in BD's debt load
nearly doubling (including assumed debt issued by Bard) and
pro-forma leverage (debt/EBITDA) near five times. BD has
articulated that it expects to reduce debt/EBITDA (as defined by
the company) below three times within three years of closing.
"However Moody's believe that BD will have limited flexibility to
deviate from its deleveraging plans, and returning to
investment-grade levels will take longer than what Moody's feel is
acceptable for the prior rating," added Mr. Tuhy.

The following ratings were downgraded:

Issuer: Becton, Dickinson and Company

Senior Unsecured Commercial Paper to Not Prime from Prime-2

Senior Unsecured Regular Bond/Debenture to Ba1 (LGD 4) from Baa2

Ratings Assigned:

Issuer: Becton, Dickinson and Company

Corporate Family Rating at Ba1

Probability of Default Rating at Ba1-PD

Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating at SGL-1

Ratings Affirmed:

Issuer: Becton, Dickinson and Company

Senior Unsecured Bank Credit Facility at Ba1 (LGD 4)

Senior Unsecured Regular Bond/Debenture at Ba1 (LGD 4)

Ratings Withdrawn:

Issuer: Becton, Dickinson and Company

Issuer Rating at Baa2

The outlook on all ratings is stable

RATINGS RATIONALE

BD's Ba1 Corporate Family Rating reflects its high financial
leverage with debt/EBITDA near five times at the closing of the
Bard acquisition. The ratings reflect the company's meaningful
scale in the medical device industry with pro-forma revenues
exceeding $16 billion and global reach with approximately 45% of
sales generated outside the United States. The combined firm is
well diversified with market leading positions across multiple
product categories. The acquired Bard business is highly
complementary to BD's existing product lines and Moody's believes
the company's cost saving targets ($300 million of cost savings by
fiscal 2020) are achievable. The rating also reflects the company's
aggressive acquisition strategy, evidenced by announcing the $25.2
billion acquisition of Bard approximately two years after closing
the $12.5 billion acquisition of CareFusion.

The rating outlook is stable. Moody's expects that BD will
successfully integrate Bard and will substantially achieve cost
synergy targets. Moody's also expects the company to use free cash
flow to reduce debt, as BD progresses toward its articulated
leverage target of debt/EBITDA below three times.

Ratings could be upgraded if the company successfully integrates
Bard while meaningfully reducing leverage and Moody's expects BD's
financial policies to be consistent with an investment grade
profile. Quantitatively, ratings could be upgraded if Moody's
expects debt/EBITDA to be sustained below 3.5 times.

Ratings could be downgraded if the company encounters problems
integrating Bard or if the company pursues meaningful debt-financed
acquisitions while leverage remains at elevated levels.
Quantitatively, ratings could be downgraded if Moody's expects
debt/EBITDA to be sustained above four times beyond two years of
closing the Bard acquisition.

Becton Dickinson, headquartered in Franklin Lakes, New Jersey, is a
medical technology company that manufactures a broad array of
medical products, laboratory equipment and diagnostic products. In
December 2017 BD acquired C.R. Bard, Inc. a manufacturer of
medical, surgical and diagnostic devices used for vascular,
urology, oncology, and surgical specialties. Pro-forma revenues
exceed $16 billion.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was that for the
Medical Product and Device Industry published in June 2017.

In April 2017, Moody's Investors Service upgraded Bill Barrett's
Corporate Family Rating (CFR) to 'Caa1' from 'Caa2' and its
existing senior unsecured notes' ratings to 'Caa2' from 'Caa3'.
"The upgrade of Bill Barrett's ratings is driven by the reduction
of default risk supported by the company's large cash balance and
improved debt maturity profile," said Prateek Reddy, Moody's lead
analyst.  "The company's credit metrics are likely to soften in
2017 because of the roll off of higher priced hedges, but the
metrics should strengthen along with production growth in 2018."

CARTEL MANAGEMENT: Booye Buying Two 2015 Yamaha Model VXs for $7K
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Cartel Management, Inc. ("CMI"), and Titans of Mavericks, LLC, ask
the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of California to
authorize the sale of two personal watercraft: (i) 2015 Yamaha
Model VX, VIN # 6EX-1010211, Serial # YAMA2634D515; and (ii) 2015
Yamaha Model VX, VIN # 6EX-1008410, Serial # YAMA1804ED515; and an
accompanying trailer with VIN # 1ZCS16010FZ346173, to Jared Booye
for $7,000 in cash.

A hearing on the Motion is set for Jan. 10, 2018 at 2:00 p.m.

The Court entered its order granting the Debtors' sale of their
assets related to "Titans of Maverick," to the Association of
Surfing Professionals, LLC, doing business as World Surf League
("WSL").  The sale to WSL closed on Oct. 6, 2017.  WSL did not
purchase all of their assets.  The Debtors continue to own the
Personal Property.

The Personal Property was previously used by the Debtors in
connection with the surf event.  They have no use for the Personal
Property and believe it would be in the best interests of their
estates to sell the Personal Property as soon as possible.

The Debtors and the Buyer, subject to Bankruptcy Court approval,
have entered into the Jet Ski Bill of Sale, pursuant to which the
Debtors propose to sell the Personal Property for $7,000 cash.  The
Purchase Price includes any and all sales tax related to the
Personal Property.  Pursuant to the Sale Agreement, the Debtors
warrant that the Personal Property is free and clear of any liens
and encumbrances and that the Debtors are the legal owners of the
Personal Property.  Pursuant to the Sale Agreement, the Buyer
acknowledges that the Personal Property is being sold "as is."

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

    http://bankrupt.com/misc/Cartel_Management_166_Sales.pdf

Prior to entering into the Sale Agreement, the Debtors advertised
the sale of the Personal Property via Craigslist, for an
approximate one to two week period. During that time, the Debtors
received one inquiry in connection with the Personal Property, but
no offers.  The Buyer, who is a brother in law of the Debtors'
principal, subsequently agreed to purchase the Personal Property
from the Debtors pursuant to the Sale Agreement.

The Debtors believe that the Purchase Price reflects the fair
market value of the Personal Property.  Titans scheduled the
Personal Property on Schedule B of its Schedules of Assets and
Liabilities, and listed a value of $21,000 for the Personal
Property, but that value represents the original purchase price
paid for the Personal Property, when it was new.  The Personal
Property was utilized by the Debtors in a high stress environment
which has taken a toll on the condition of the Personal Property.
Using the Personal Property in connection with the big surf contest
caused additional wear and tear and depreciation of the Personal
Property.  The Debtor believes that personal watercraft and trailer
in good condition with minimal wear and tear is worth anywhere
between $7,000 and $10,000; however, given the substantial wear and
tear on the Personal Property, and the fact that any buyer will
likely be required to service the Personal Property, as well as
spend money to remove "Titans of Mavericks" graphic wraps from the
Personal Property, the Debtors believe that a Purchase Price of
$7,000 for the Personal Property is fair and reasonable, and that
the Debtors would be unable to obtain any more for the Personal
Property.  As such, it is their opinion that a sale of the Personal
Property at any amount greater than $5,000 would be reasonable.

In order to facilitate the most expeditious sale closing possible,
the Debtors request that any order granting the Motion be effective
immediately upon entry by providing that the 14-day waiting periods
of Bankruptcy Rule 6004(h) and 6006(d) are waived.

                    About Cartel Management

Cartel Management, Inc., and Titans of Mavericks, LLC --
http://www.titansofmavericks.com/-- promote, organize and host a
sporting event in "big wave" surfing known as "Titans of Mavericks"
at the Pacific Ocean surf break popularly known as "Maverick's"
located near Half Moon Bay, California.

Cartel and Titans filed Chapter 11 petitions (Bankr. C.D. Cal. Lead
Case No. 17-11179) on Jan. 31, 2017.  Griffin Guess, president of
Cartel, signed the petitions.

At the time of filing, Cartel estimated assets of less than $1
million and estimated liabilities of $1 million to $10 million.
Titans estimated assets of less than $50,000 and liabilities of
less than $500,000.

Judge Deborah J. Saltzman presides over the cases.

The Debtors engaged David L. Neale, Esq., at Levene, Neale, Bender,
Yoo & Brill LLP, in Los Angeles, California, as bankruptcy counsel.
The Debtors tapped Hartford O. Brown, Esq., at Klinedinst PC, as
special counsel in relation to the potential sale of their assets,
and to handle disputes with Red Bull Media House North America,
Inc., and other third parties.  The Debtors also tapped Tyler
Paetkau, Esq., of Hartnett, Smith & Paetkau to represent them on
certain proceedings, including administrative proceedings before
the San Mateo County Harbor District, the California Coastal
Commission, the San Mateo County Planning and Building Department,
and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.


CARTEL MANAGEMENT: Delays Plan Filing Due to Holiday Season
-----------------------------------------------------------
Cartel Management, Inc., and Titans of Mavericks, LLC, ask the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Central District of California to extend
the exclusivity periods for each of the Debtors to file a plan of
reorganization and to obtain acceptance of the plan to and
including Feb. 27, 2018, and April 30, 2018, respectively.

A hearing on the requested extension is scheduled for Jan. 31,
2018, at 2:00 p.m.

The Debtors require additional time to finalize the plan, and
believe that they will be in a position to file a plan within the
next 30 to 45 days.

The Debtors say that their proposed plan is nearly complete, but
they need additional time to present a plan and disclosure
statement that have been approved by the Debtors' principal.  Due
to the holiday season, the Debtors' principal and the Debtors'
counsel have been unable to meet in person during the past several
weeks in order to finalize and file a plan and disclosure
statement.

Since the Debtors sold certain of their assets related to the
"Titans of Mavericks" surf event, in addition to preparing a plan,
the Debtors have allocated resources toward preparing and filing an
objection to the claim of Mavericks Invitational, Inc., asserted
against Cartel, and the Debtors have also filed a motion to sell
certain personal property.  Thus, the Debtors have actively taken
measures to further advance these cases to conclusion.  Indeed, MII
has filed a statement of non-opposition to the disallowance of its
$2,145,000 claim, and the Debtors' motion to sell personal property
is unopposed.

The Debtors assure the Court that they have properly administered
their cases and that they are in compliance with the requirements
and obligations of Chapter 11 debtors in possession.  The Debtors
have attended and completed their initial debtor interviews and
Section 341(a) meetings of creditors.  The Debtors have timely
filed their Schedules of Assets and Liabilities and Statement of
Financial Affairs.  The Debtors have complied with all of the
Court's orders.  The Debtors have obtained Court approval for
employment of their professionals.  The Debtors are requesting a
brief extension of their respective exclusivity periods in good
faith for the purpose of finalizing a plan and disclosure
statement.

The Debtors say that while their operations are not necessarily
complex, the formulation and closing of a sale for the benefit of
the Debtors' creditors was a complex and time-consuming process in
these cases.  After the Debtors closed their sale of certain assets
to World Surf League, the Debtors immediately shifted their focus
to: (1) preparing a plan and disclosure statement; (2) filing an
objection to MII's claim; and (3) attempting to monetize other
assets, like personal property.  The Debtors are close to
finalizing a plan and disclosure statement, but require additional
time to do so.  An extension of the Debtors' exclusivity periods
will afford the Debtors additional time, so as to allow the Debtors
to be able to proposed a plan with their exclusivity periods
intact.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on Sept. 22, 2017, the
Court previously extended the exclusivity periods for the Debtors
to file a plan and obtain acceptance of the plan to and including
Dec. 29, 2017, and Feb. 27, 2018, respectively.

CIRCULATORY CENTERS: Chapter 11 Trustee Appointment Warranted
-------------------------------------------------------------
The Debtors, an affiliated group of medical practices, in the
bankruptcy case captioned CIRCULATORY CENTERS OF AMERICA, LLC, et
al., Chapter 11, Debtors, Case No. 17-22572-GLT (Bankr. W.D. Pa.)
are in the midst of negotiating a sale of substantially all of
their assets. Their primary secured creditor, Fifth Third Bank,
seeks the appointment of a chapter 11 trustee and relief from the
automatic stay, alleging that the current management team is acting
in its own self-interest by allocating an inordinate amount of the
prospective sale proceeds to a non-debtor affiliate for the sole
purpose of satisfying claims held by the U.S. Government and
eliminating any personal liability the officers may have. Fifth
Third asserts that these actions deprive the Debtors' bankruptcy
estates of the value they are entitled to receive from the sale.
The Debtors oppose the requested relief and contend that valid
business justifications exist for their actions.

Bankruptcy Judge Gregory L. Taddonio grants Fifth Third's request
for the appointment of a chapter 11 trustee but denies its request
for stay relief.

The call for a trustee is based primarily upon a belief that
Circulatory management is diverting a substantial portion of the
sale proceeds to CC-New York where they can be used to satisfy the
Government's claims. CC-New York refrained from commencing a
bankruptcy case presumably because it is the only operating
affiliate that did not pledge its assets to Fifth Third as
collateral. Without Court oversight and freed of the burden of
satisfying Fifth Third's claims, CC-New York can distribute a
larger percentage of its sale proceeds to unsecured creditors than
its debtor--affiliates. Fifth Third claims that Circulatory's
management intends to use CC-New York to fund a settlement payment
to the Government which would resolve its outstanding claims and
eliminate any personal liability for the officers. Because the
consideration allocated to CC-New York is not commensurate with its
value to the overall enterprise, Fifth Third suggests that
management is advancing its own self-interests at the expense of
creditors in the bankruptcy estate.

After considering all the arguments, the Court finds that Fifth
Third has met its burden of proof and demonstrated cause for the
appointment of a trustee. Current management remains focused on
preserving a predetermined distribution for CC-New York for the
purpose of satisfying the Government's claims and alleviating any
associated personal liability. Actions such as these which elevate
the interests of the principals over those of the
debtor-corporation and its creditors constitute a conflict of
interest that runs counter to the principals' fiduciary duties.

The Court likewise finds that the appointment of a trustee is in
the best interests of the Debtors' creditors. The Debtors'
allocations project that CC-New York will receive sale proceeds in
amounts which are disproportionate to the value of the assets it
will contribute to the sale. To the extent an excessive amount is
paid over to CC-New York, the claims of the Government may be
resolved, but it comes at the expense of all other creditors in the
Debtors' estates. Accordingly, the Court finds it necessary to
appoint an independent trustee to ensure that value is preserved in
each estate and creditors ultimately receive distributions in the
amounts they deserve.

In light of the ruling that a trustee is warranted, the Court finds
no basis to grant Fifth Third's request for stay relief. The
unrefuted evidence demonstrates that the assets subject to Fifth
Third's liens are necessary to the Debtors' reorganization and
their value can be maximized through a sale process featuring a
thorough marketing of the goods available for purchase. Given that
one prospective buyer has already tendered an executed purchase
agreement and another is conducting due diligence, the Court
concludes that a sale conducted under the trustee's leadership is
reasonably likely to occur within a reasonable period of time,
thereby precluding stay relief.

The weight of the evidence also does not support Fifth Third's
contention that, at this juncture, it is inadequately protected.
Fifth Third is currently receiving monthly adequate protection
payments from the bankruptcy estate and the Court finds no credible
proof that its collateral is depreciating in value while the sale
process unfolds. Once the trustee is appointed, adequate protection
payments can continue pending consummation of a sale.

With the appointment of a chapter 11 trustee, the Debtors' motion
to extend the exclusivity period is denied as moot.

CONNEAUT LAKE PARK: Unable to Prove It Incurred Damages, Ct. Rules
------------------------------------------------------------------
Trustees of Conneaut Lake Park, Inc., commenced the adversary
proceeding captioned TRUSTEES OF CONNEAUT LAKE PARK, INC.,
Plaintiff, v. PARK RESTORATION, LLC, Defendant, Adversary No.
16-01029-JAD (Bankr. W.D. Pa.) by filing its three-count complaint
against Park Restoration alleging two counts of breach of contract
(Counts I and II) and one count of contractual indemnification
(Count III) against Park Restoration stemming from the Parties'
Beach Club Management Agreement.

A trial was held on the issue of damages with respect to Count I of
the Complaint on May 17, 2017, and July 24, 2017.

Under Pennsylvania law, a party asserting a breach of contract
claim must establish three elements: (1) the existence of a
contract, (2) a breach of one or more of the duties imposed by the
contract, and (3) damages. Finding that the first two elements were
satisfied, the Court entered judgment on the pleadings in favor of
TCLP and against Park Restoration as to liability only on Count I.
As such, the issue addressed by the Court here is the extent to
which damages exist as to Count I of TCLP's Complaint.

Upon review of the evidence, the Court concludes that TCLP has not
proven that it incurred damages and relief is denied as to Count I
of the Complaint only.

DIGIPATH INC: Incurs $1.06 Million Net Loss in Fiscal 2017
----------------------------------------------------------
Digipath, Inc., filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission
its annual report on Form 10-K reporting a net loss of $1.06
million on $1.89 million of revenues for the year ended Sept. 30,
2017, compared to a net loss of $3.69 million on $818,583 of
revenues for the year ended Sept. 30, 2016.

As of Sept. 30, 2017, Digipath had $1.57 million in total assets,
$163,998 in total liabilities and $1.40 million in total
stockholders' equity.  The Company's assets comprise of cash of
$178,177, accounts receivable of $266,613, prepaid expenses of
$73,750, deposits of $25,647 and fixed assets of $1,027,049.

According to Digipath, "As of September 30, 2017, our balance of
cash on hand was $178,177.  We do not currently have sufficient
funds to fund our operations at their current levels for the next
twelve months.  As we continue to develop our lab testing business
and attempt to expand operational activities, we expect to continue
to experience net negative cash flows from operations in amounts
not now determinable, and will be required to obtain additional
financing to fund operations.  Our ability to continue as a going
concern is dependent upon our ability to raise additional capital
and to achieve sustainable revenues and profitable operations.
Since inception, we have raised funds primarily through the sale of
equity securities.  We will need and are currently seeking
additional funds to operate our business.  No assurance can be
given that any future financing will be available or, if available,
that it will be on terms that are satisfactory to us.  Even if we
are able to obtain additional financing, it may contain undue
restrictions on our operations or cause substantial dilution for
our stockholders.  If we are unable to obtain additional funds, our
ability to carry out and implement our planned business objectives
and strategies will be significantly delayed, limited or may not
occur.  We cannot guarantee that we will become profitable. Even if
we achieve profitability, given the competitive and evolving nature
of the industry in which we operate, we may not be able to sustain
or increase profitability and our failure to do so would adversely
affect our business, including our ability to raise additional
funds."

Anton & Chia, LLP, in Newport Beach, CA, issued a "going concern"
qualification in its report on the consolidated financial
statements for the year ended Sept. 30, 2017, noting that the
Company has recurring losses and insufficient working capital,
which raises substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a
going concern.

ECLIPSE RESOURCES: Closes Utica Shale Drilling Joint Venture
------------------------------------------------------------
Eclipse Resources Corporation, through certain subsidiaries,
entered into definitive agreements with Sequel Energy Group LLC (an
affiliate of GSO Capital Partners LP) on Dec. 22, 2017 to establish
the previously announced drilling joint venture on the Company's
Utica Shale acreage in Guernsey and Monroe Counties in southeast
Ohio.

Drilling Joint Venture Highlights:

   * Committed funding from Sequel of up to $285 million to fund
     its proportionate share of two drilling programs comprising
     34 gross wells in aggregate, commencing with wells currently
     in progress and extending through wells expected to be
     commenced through the end 2018.  This committed funding
     amount reflects the Company's working interest election in
     the first program.

   * A mutual option for an additional third well program
     consisting of approximately 16 wells, which would increase
     the committed funding.

   * Eclipse Resources will be the operator of all wells drilled
     within each well program.

   * Eclipse Resources will retain 50% of its pre-carry working
     interest in the first program and shall have the option until

     Jan. 31, 2018 to adjust its pre-carry working interest in the

     second program and, if applicable, the third well program to
     between 30% to 70% until that program is commenced.

   * A 15% carried interest on drilling and completion capital
     expenditures incurred in each well program, proportionately
     reduced to Eclipse Resources retained pre-carry working
     interest.

   * A significant portion of Sequel's working interest in each
     well program will revert to Eclipse Resources once a certain
     return is realized by Sequel in each program.

Benjamin W. Hulburt, Chairman, president and CEO, commented on the
Company's joint venture agreement, "We believe that the drilling
joint venture agreement we have entered into with Sequel, an
affiliate of GSO, speaks to both the quality of our assets and our
industry leading operational performance.  The Company has elected
to retain a 50% pre-carry working interest in the first program and
anticipates making its election into the second program, along with
announcing the Company's 2018 Capital budget, during the first
quarter of 2018.  The structure of the drilling joint venture
allows us to maintain an efficient, two rig operating program while
providing flexibility to manage capital spending to a level that is
appropriate depending on the strength of the forward commodity
curves.  We are extremely pleased with the final terms and
structure outlined by the agreement with Sequel and the high degree
of confidence that our partner has in our assets and operational
capabilities."

In June 2017, S&P Global Ratings raised its corporate credit rating
on Eclipse Resources Inc. to 'B-' from 'CCC+'.  The rating outlook
is stable.  "The rating action reflects our opinion that Eclipse's
leverage is now sustainable due to our increased production and
cash flow projections," said S&P Global Ratings credit analyst
Christine Besset.

In August 2017, Moody's Investors Service upgraded Eclipse
Resources Corp.'s Corporate Family Rating to 'B3' from 'Caa1'.
"The upgrade to B3 reflects Eclipse's reduced leverage resulting
from improved cash flow tied to strong production growth.
Eclipse's robust drilling program through 2018, supported by strong
commodity price hedging and willingness to periodically access
equity markets to term out debt, should allow Eclipse to remain on
a strong growth trajectory without stressing its balance sheet,"
noted John Thieroff, Moody's VP-senior analyst.


ESCALERA RESOURCES: Everest Buying Bakken Assets for $340K
----------------------------------------------------------
Escalera Resources Co. asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
District of Colorado to authorize the private sale of its small
overriding royalty interests ("ORRIs"), working interests and
mineral interests in certain oil and gas wells and leases located
in McKenzie, Burke, and Dunn Counties, North Dakota, and Richland
and Roosevelt Counties, Montanato ("Bakken Assets") to Everest
Energy, LLC for $340,000.

The Bakken Assets are not included in the potential sale of the
Debtor's coal bed methane ("CBM") Atlantic Rim assets, which are
the subject of negotiations with a separate buyer.  They do not
make up a material portion of the assets, business or operations of
the Debtor.

The Bakken Assets consist of the Debtor's interests in and to the
following:

      a. those certain Leases, which term includes various oil and
gas leases, ORRIs, mineral interests, units and participating areas
located in or on the Properties;

      b. all oil, gas, water and injection wells located in or upon

      e. Records associated with the foregoing.

The Debtor and Seaport Global Securities, LLC split the Debtor's
non-CBM assets in several different packages, including the Bakken
Assets, and in July 2017 Seaport Global listed them for sale on the
Petroleum Listing Service ("PLS").  The PLS lists, among other
things, the oil and gas assets for sale.  As a result of the PLS
listing, on Nov. 6, 2017, the Debtor received an offer from
Everest, a private oil and gas company located in Bismarck, North
Dakota, to purchase the Bakken Assets.  No other offers were
received.  After negotiations, the parties entered into a Purchase
and Sale Agreement executed Nov. 24, 2017, but effective on Dec. 1,
2017, subject to the Court approval.

The material terms of the PSA are:

     a. Purchase Price: The purchase price for the Bakken Assets is
$340,000, payable in full upon Closing and subject to certain
adjustments.  The PSA does not require an earnest money deposit.

     b. Sale Free and Clear of Liens: The Bakken Assets are being
sold "as is, where is" without warranty of any kind, except
as provided in the PSA, and free and clear of all liens, claims and
encumbrances.

     c. Private Sale: The PSA does not contemplate an auction.

     d. Closing and Other Deadlines: The Closing of the transaction
must occur no later than 15) days after entry of the Sale Order.
Everest will have until Dec. 17, 2017, to perform and complete its
due diligence, and to elect whether or not to proceed with the
Closing of the sale.

     e. Relief from Bankruptcy Rule 6004(h) and 6006(d): The
proposed Sale Order contains a provision that such order will
become effective immediately upon entry pursuant to Bankruptcy
Rules 6004(h) and 6006(d), rather than being stayed until the entry
of 14 days after the entry of the Sale Order.

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

    http://bankrupt.com/misc/Escalera_Resources_524_Sales.pdf

The Bakken Assets are being sold subject to these liens, claims and
encumbrances (called "Permitted Encumbrances" in the PSA):

     a. Royalties and overriding royalties, reversionary interests
and other burdens;

     b. All leases, unit agreements, pooling agreements, operating
agreements, Hydrocarbon production sales contracts, division orders
and other contracts, agreements and instruments applicable to the
Bakken Assets that are recorded and indexed against the lands with
the applicable County Recorder and/or provided to Everest prior to
the Closing Date;

     c. Transfer Requirements applicable to the Bakken Assets
including but not limited to a mutually agreed upon recordable
special warranty deed transferring all of the Assets on Exhibits
A-1, A-2 and A-3 with a supporting order of the Bankruptcy Court
authorizing the sale of the Assets free and clear of any liens;

     d. Liens for current Taxes or assessments not yet delinquent
(or, if delinquent, (i) being contested in good faith by
appropriate actions, or (ii) which will attach to the sale proceeds
at Closing pursuant to the Sale Order);

     e. Materialman's, mechanic's, repairman's, employee's,
contractor's, operator's and other similar liens or charges arising
in the ordinary course of business for amounts not yet delinquent
(including any amounts being withheld as provided by Law), or, if
delinquent, (i) being contested in good faith by appropriate
actions, or (ii) which will attach to the sale proceeds at closing
pursuant to the Sale Order so long as they are disclosed at
Closing;

     f. Excepting circumstances where rights have already been
triggered, rights of reassignment arising upon final intention to
abandon or release the Bakken Assets, or any of them;

     g. Easements, rights-of-way, servitudes, permits, surface
leases and other rights in respect of surface operations;

     h. All rights reserved to or vested in any Governmental Body
to control or regulate any of the Assets in any manner and all
obligations and duties under all applicable Laws, or under any
franchise, grant, license or permit issued by any such Governmental
Body;

     i. Any encumbrance on or affecting the Bakken Assets which
Everest expressly assumes, bonds or pays at or prior to Closing or
which Debtor discharges at or prior to Closing;

     j. Calls on Hydrocarbon production under existing Contracts;

     k. Any other liens, charges, encumbrances, defects or
irregularities which do not, individually or in the aggregate,
materially interfere with the use or ownership of the Bakken Assets
subject thereto or affected thereby (as currently used or owned),
which would be accepted by a reasonably prudent purchaser engaged
in the business of owning and operating oil and gas properties;
and

     l. Liens granted under applicable joint or unit operating
agreements that are recorded and indexed against the Assets with
the applicable County Recorder and/or provided to the Purchaser
prior to the Closing Date.

The Societe Generale, as Administrative Agent for the senior
secured lenders, may claim an Interest in the Bakken Assets.  The
Debtor is a party to a Credit Agreement dated as of Aug. 29, 2014,
with certain senior secured lenders, including Societe Generale.
As of the Petition Date, the Debtor was indebted to such lenders
for not less than: (i) $36,886,300 in aggregate principal amount;
(ii) accrued and unpaid interest and fees of $389,641; and (iii)
additional amounts claimed as owed under the credit facility.  As
of the Petition Date, the Credit Facility was collateralized by
substantially all of the Debtor's oil and gas producing properties
and substantially all other assets.  Societe Geneale, as
administrative agent for the senior secured lenders, consents to
the sale, with its lien to attach to the net proceeds.

The Debtor is unaware of any other Interests encumbering the Bakken
Assets and of any holder of a Preferential Purchase Right that
applies to the sale.

Based upon the foregoing, the potential sale of the Debtor's Bakken
Assets is in the best interests of the Debtor, its estate, and its
creditors, and is based upon sound, reasoned and informed business
judgment warranting the Court's approval.

The Debtor asks that the order approving the Motion becomes
effective immediately upon entry pursuant to Bankruptcy Rules
6004(h).

ESCALERA RESOURCES: Rock Creek Buying Rabourn Assets for $410K
--------------------------------------------------------------
Escalera Resources Co. asks the United States Bankruptcy Court for
the District of Colorado to authorize the private sale of one oil
well and related assets located in Campbell County, Wyoming
("Rabourn Assets") to from Rock Creek Energy, LLC for $410,000,
subject to adjustments.

The Rabourn Assets consist of the following: (i) one stand-alone
oil well; (ii) the equipment, machinery, fixtures, flowlines,
storage facilities and other tangible personal property and
improvements located on the subject land; (iii) all Hydrocarbons
produced from or attributable to the leases, land and well after
the Effective Time; (iv) an executory contract for the sale of oil
produced from the well and the unexpired oil and gas leases
associated therewith; and (v) records relating to the foregoing.

The Rabourn Assets are not included in the potential sale of the
Debtor's coal bed methane ("CBM") Atlantic Rim assets, which are
the subject of negotiations with a separate buyer.  They do not
make up a material portion of the assets, business or operations of
the Debtor.

The Debtor and Seaport Global Securities, LLC split the Debtor's
assets in several different packages, including the Rabourn Assets,
and in July 2017 Seaport Global listed them for sale on the
Petroleum Listing Service ("PLS").  The PLS lists, among other
things, the oil and gas assets for sale.  As a result of the PLS
listing, on Oct. 24, 2017, the Debtor received an offer Rock Creek,
a private oil and gas company located in Englewood, Colorado, to
purchase the Rabourn Assets.  No other offers were received.  After
negotiations, the parties entered into a Purchase and Sale
Agreement executed Nov. 27, 2017, but effective on Aug. 1, 2017,
subject to the Court approval.

The material terms of the PSA are:

     a. Purchase Price: The purchase price for the Rabourn Assets
is $410,000, payable in full upon Closing and subject to certain
adjustments.  The PSA does not require an earnest money deposit.

     b. Contracts and Leases: The Debtor will assume and assign the
executory contracts and unexpired leases to the Buyer.

     c. Sale Free and Clear of Liens: The Rabourn Assets are being
sold "as is, where is" without warranty of any kind, except as
provided in the PSA, and free and clear of all liens, claims and
encumbrances.

     d. Private Sale: The PSA does not contemplate an auction.

     e. Closing and Other Deadlines: The Closing of the transaction
must occur no later than 15vdays after entry of the Sale Order.

     f. Use of Proceeds: As requested later in the Motion, the
proposed Sale Order includes a provision authorizing the Debtor to
pay the Prepetition Taxes to the Campbell County, Wyoming Treasurer
at Closing.  Such payment will prevent the further accrual of
interest at 18% per annum on such claims.  The Debtor will also pay
at Closing the Post-petition Taxes which are accrued and payable,
since they are administrative expenses which are to be paid in the
ordinary course of business.

     g. Relief from Bankruptcy Rule 6004(h) and 6006(d): The
proposed Sale Order contains a provision that such order will
become effective immediately upon entry pursuant to Bankruptcy
Rules 6004(h) and 6006(d), rather than being stayed until the entry
of 14 days after the entry of the Sale Order.

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

   http://bankrupt.com/misc/Escalera_Resources_523_Sales.pdf

The Rabourn Assets are being sold subject to these Interests
(called "Permitted Encumbrances" in the PSA):

     a. Royalties and overriding royalties, reversionary interests
and other burdens;

     b. All leases, unit agreements, pooling agreements, operating
agreements, Hydrocarbon production sales contracts, division orders
and other contracts, agreements and instruments applicable to the
Rabourn Assets;

     c. Transfer Requirements applicable to the Rabourn Assets;

     d. Liens for current Taxes or assessments not yet delinquent
(or, if delinquent, (i) being contested in good faith by
appropriate actions, or (ii) which will attach to the sale proceeds
at Closing pursuant to the Sale Order);

     e. Materialman's, mechanic's, repairman's, employee's,
contractor's, operator's and other similar liens or charges arising
in the ordinary course of business for amounts not yet delinquent
(including any amounts being withheld as provided by Law), or, if
d elinquent, (i) being contested in good faith by appropriate
actions, or (ii) which will attach to the sale proceeds at closing
pursuant to the Sale Order;

     f. Rights of reassignment arising upon final intention to
abandon or release the Rabourn Assets, or any of them;

     g. Easements, rights-of-way, servitudes, permits, surface
leases and other rights in respect of surface operations;

     h. All rights reserved to or vested in any Governmental Body
to control or regulate any of the Assets in any manner and all
obligations and duties under all applicable Laws, or under any
franchise, grant, license or permit issued by any such Governmental
Body;

     i. Any encumbrance on or affecting the Rabourn Assets which
Rock Creek expressly assumes, bonds or pays at or prior to Closing
or which Debtor discharges at or prior to Closing;

     j. Calls on Hydrocarbon production under existing Contracts;

     k. Any other liens, charges, encumbrances, defects or
irregularities which do not, individually or in the aggregate,
materially interfere with the use or ownership of the Rabourn
Assets subject thereto or affected thereby (as currently used or
owned), which would be accepted by a reasonably prudent purchaser
engaged in the business of owning and operating oil and gas
properties; and

     l. Liens granted under applicable joint or unit operating
agreements.

The following parties may claim an Interest in the Rabourn Assets:
(i) Societe Generale, as Administrative Agent for the senior
secured lenders; and (ii) Campbell County, Wyoming Treasurer.
Societe Generale, as Administrative Agent for the senior secured
lender, has consented to the sale.

The Campbell County, Wyoming Treasurer is owed prepetition taxes on
the subject properties of (i) $23,395 plus accrued interest for
gross proceeds-ad valorem taxes due (2015 assessment for 2014
production);, and (ii) $7,060 plus accrued interest also for gross
proceedsad valorem taxes (2016 assessment for 2015 production), for
a total of $30,455 plus accrued interest.  The Campbell County,
Wyoming Treasurer is also owed postpetiton taxes on such properties
totaling $12,280 (2017 assessment for 2016 production) through
Sept. 1, 2017.

The Debtor asks authority to pay the Prepetition Taxes at Closing.
Such payment will prevent the further accrual of interest at 18%
per annum on such claims.  The Debtor intends to pay the
Postposition Taxes as of the Closing.  It is unaware of any other
Interests encumbering the Rabourn Assets and of any holder of a
Preferential Purchase Right that applies to the sale.

The Debtor asks authority to assume and assign the Purchased
Contracts.  To its knowledge, there is no existing default under
the Purchased Contracts; however, to the extent an existing default
is discovered, Rock Creek intends to provide adequate cure.
Contemporaneously with the Motion, the counterparties to the
Purchased Contracts are being provided with the Contract Notice
required by Section 4.3(b) of the PSA.  The notice will indicate
that there are no Cure Costs payable upon Closing.

Based upon the foregoing, the potential sale of the Debtor's
Rabourn Assets is in the best interests of the Debtor, its estate,
and its creditors, and is based upon sound, reasoned and informed
business judgment warranting the Court's approval.

The Debtor asks that the order approving the Motion becomes
effective immediately upon entry pursuant to Bankruptcy Rules
6004(h) and 6006(d).

EXCO RESOURCES: Common Shares Delisted from NYSE
------------------------------------------------
EXCO Resources, Inc., was notified by the New York Stock Exchange
on Dec. 22, 2017, that the NYSE has determined to commence
proceedings to delist EXCO's common shares from the NYSE as a
result of EXCO's failure to maintain an average global market
capitalization over a consecutive 30 trading-day period of at least
$15 million pursuant to Section 802.01B of the NYSE Listed Company
Manual.  The NYSE also suspended the trading of EXCO's common
shares at the close of trading on Dec. 22, 2017.

Under the NYSE Listed Company Manual, the Company has a right to
appeal this determination, provided a written request for such
appeal is submitted to the NYSE within 10 business days after
receiving the notice of delisting.  The Company has decided not to
seek an appeal.

The Company's common shares commenced trading on the OTC Pink
Marketplace under the symbol "XCOO" on Dec. 27, 2017.  The Company
can provide no assurance that its common shares will commence or
continue to trade on this market, whether broker-dealers will
continue to provide public quotes of the Company's common shares on
this market or whether the trading volume of the Company's common
shares will be sufficient to provide for an efficient trading
market.

The delisting of EXCO's common shares from the NYSE does not affect
EXCO's business operations or its Securities and Exchange
Commission reporting requirements and does not conflict with or
cause an event of default under any of the Company's material debt
agreements.

EXCO Resources reported a net loss of $225.3 million on $271
million of total revenues for the year ended Dec. 31, 2016,
compared to a net loss of $1.19 billion on $355.70 million of total
revenues for the year ended Dec. 31, 2015.  As of Sept. 30, 2017,
EXCO Resources had $830.17 million in total assets, $1.59 billion
in total liabilities and a total shareholders' deficit of $760.36
million.

KPMG LLP, in Dallas, Texas, issued a "going concern" qualification
on the consolidated financial statements for the year ended Dec.
31, 2016, citing that probable failure to comply with a financial
covenant in its credit facility as well as significant liquidity
needs, raise substantial doubt about the Company's ability to
continue as a going concern.

                           *    *    *

In December 2016, Moody's Investors Service downgraded EXCO
Resources' corporate family rating to 'Ca' from 'Caa2'.  "EXCO's
downgrade reflects its eroded liquidity position which is
insufficient to fully fund development expenditures at the level
required to stem ongoing production declines," commented Andrew
Brooks, Moody's vice president.  "Absent an injection of additional
liquidity, the source of which is not readily identifiable, EXCO
could face going concern risk as it confronts an unsustainable
capital structure."

As reported by the TCR on Dec. 26, 2017, S&P Global Ratings lowered
its corporate credit rating on EXCO Resources Inc. to 'D' from
'CCC-'.  "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."

FOREST CAPITAL: Law Firm Liable for Receiving Postpetition Transfer
-------------------------------------------------------------------
A trustee in bankruptcy generally may avoid any postpetition
transfer of property belonging to the bankruptcy estate that is not
authorized by the U.S. Bankruptcy Code or the court. Some courts
have determined that the trustee's ability to recover an avoidable
postpetition transfer is limited if the transferee has a secured
claim against the estate.  The logic of this approach rests on the
fact that the transfer to the secured creditor actually reduces the
secured creditor's claim against the estate, which reduction will
be reinstated and repaid from the estate if the transfer is
avoided. Under this approach, the analysis focuses on whether
avoidance of the post-petition transfer provides a benefit to the
estate.

The adversary proceeding captioned Forest Capital, LLC, Plaintiff,
v. Fischer Porter & Thomas, P.C., et al., Defendants, Adversary No.
16-00337-MMH (Bankr. D. Md.) requires the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the District of Maryland to evaluate both the avoidance of an
alleged post-petition transfer and the transferee's liability for
the same if the transferee asserts a valid and perfected lien in
the transferred property. Specifically, Fischer Porter & Thomas
made a post-petition transfer of property in the amount of $25,000
to itself in payment of certain prepetition legal fees. Debtor
Forest Capital, LLC asserts that the Postpetition Transfer
constitutes an avoidable transfer under section 549 of the Code and
is moving for partial summary judgment on that basis. The
Defendant's opposition to that motion turns largely on section 550
of the Code and the reasoning of In re C.W. Mining Company. The
Defendant moreover grounds its request for partial summary judgment
on its secured creditor status and the legal services it provided
to a nondebtor party.

Based on the facts presented, Bankruptcy Judge Michelle M. Harner
finds that the Defendant has not established a valid and
enforceable attorney's lien under applicable state law. The Court
further determines that the Defendant received the Postpetition
Transfer in violation of section 549 of the Code. The Court is not,
however, directing repayment of the Postpetition Transfer at this
time. The Plaintiff's Motion for Partial Summary Judgment does not
seek relief under section 550 of the Code. In addition, the Court
finds that there are genuine issues of material fact concerning the
liability of the Defendant to repay all or part of the Postpetition
Transfer, as well the nature, extent, and scope of its claim
against the estate.

Accordingly, the Court grants the Plaintiff's Motion for Partial
Summary Judgment to the extent that it seeks to avoid the
Postpetition Transfer, and it denies the Defendant's Cross-Motion
for Partial Summary Judgment in its entirety.

The bankruptcy case is in re: Forest Capital, LLC, Chapter 11,
Debtor, Case No. 16-13850-MMH (Bankr. D. Md.).

GST AUTOLEATHER: Needs More Time to Complete Sale, File Plan
------------------------------------------------------------
GST Autoleather, Inc., and its debtor-affiliates request the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware to extend by 120 days
the periods during which the Debtors have the exclusive right to:

     (a) file a chapter 11 plan, through and including May 31,
2018; and

     (b) solicit votes accepting or rejecting a plan, through and
including July 30, 2018.

The Debtors claim that their progress to date has been achieved in
no small part due to the breathing room provided by chapter 11. In
the midst of the marketing process, the Debtors believe that
maintaining the exclusive right to file and solicit votes on a
chapter 11 plan is critical to consummating their chapter 11
strategy.

The Debtors assert that extending the Exclusivity Periods will
afford them and their stakeholders time to finish their marketing
process, negotiate and confirm a chapter 11 plan, and proceed
toward consummation of these chapter 11 cases in an efficient,
organized fashion.  The Debtors contend that fewer than three
months from the Petition Date, they have already made substantial
progress towards achieving their goals in these chapter 11 cases,
but significant work remains to be done. Since filing for chapter
11 relief, the Debtors have, among other things:

     (a) stabilized operations and ensured a smooth transition into
chapter 11 through the approval of various crucial first day
motions, including securing authority to pay certain critical and
foreign vendors, honor wages and non-insider incentive programs in
the ordinary course of business, and maintain their cash management
system;

     (b) negotiated and obtained final approval on November 15,
2017, for the Debtors' $40 million debtor-in-possession financing
facility and the Debtors' bid procedures for the sale of
substantially all of the Debtors' assets, which approval followed
weeks of thorough diligence efforts undertaken by the official
committee of unsecured creditors, hard-fought negotiations among
the Debtors, their senior secured lenders, and the Creditors'
Committee, and formal litigation efforts and attendant discovery;

     (c) prepared a business plan and related materials, which
together lay the foundation for ongoing operations;

     (d) continued marketing substantially all of the Debtors'
assets postpetition, including contacting 149 potentially
interested parties, negotiating and executing confidentiality
agreements with 43 parties, coordinating substantial due diligence
efforts of certain such parties (including management and customer
presentations), and receiving multiple indications of interest;

     (e) prepared a motion to approve the sale of substantially all
of their assets, which was filed contemporaneously with the
exclusivity motion;

     (f) negotiated, sought and received court approval for, and
executed a replacement factoring agreement after an existing
agreement was terminated upon filing, ensuring compliance with the
DIP Budget, providing certainty regarding the timing and amount of
cash receivables, and providing essential liquidity to support the
Debtors business operations; and

     (g) promptly completed their schedules of assets and
liabilities and statements of financial affairs, which were filed
on December 4, 2017, and filed a motion for entry of an order
establishing claims bar dates in these chapter 11 cases to
facilitate the timely administration of their claims pool.

Therefore, the Debtors request a 120-day extension of the
Exclusivity Periods to allow them to focus on continuing to advance
the process and preclude the costly disruption and instability that
would occur if competing plans were to be proposed.

A hearing will be held on January 17, 2018 at 11:00 a.m. during
which time the Court will consider extending the Debtors' exclusive
periods. Any response or objection to the requested extension must
be filed with the Bankruptcy Court on or before January 10, 2018.

H MELTON VENTURES: DOJ Watchdog Seeks Appointment of Trustee
------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Trustee for Region 6 asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the Northern District of Texas for an order directing appointment
of Chapter 11 Trustees for the estates H. Melton Ventures, LLC, and
for Henry James Melton, II, and for an order converting the case of
Michael Warden to Chapter 7.

Henry J. Melton, II is the 90% member of Melton Ventures while
Michael G. Warden is the 10% member. On October 14, 2017, Melton
and Warden filed their own individual chapter 11 cases, Case Nos.
17-44206-RFN-11 and 17-33888-SGJ-11, respectively. A related case,
H. Melton Ventures RD, LLC, case no. 17-44521-MXM-11, was also
filed on November 6, 2017. Subsequently, on November 29, 2017, the
Court entered an order directing joint administration of all four
debtors under lead case In re H. Melton Ventures, LLC, Case no.
17-43922-RFN-11.

In 2016, X-Extreme Construction & Rehab, Inc. filed a lawsuit
against the Debtors in Dallas County District Court, 134th Judicial
District, Case No. 16-09291, alleging that it had performed repairs
on Mr. Melton's personal residence but that Mr. Melton refused to
pay for the work. The Debtors did not respond to the lawsuit, and
the State Court entered a judgment on October 6, 2016 finding
Debtors jointly and severally liable in the aggregate sum of
$205,832.

Consequently, X-Extreme sought the appointment of a receiver in the
State Court Lawsuit Because the Debtors did not satisfy the
judgment. On April 25, 2017, the State Court entered an order
directing the appointment of Andrew R. Korn as receiver under the
Texas Civil Practices Remedies Code.

The receivership order provided Mr. Korn with broad powers and
directed the Debtors to turn over all non-exempt property and
records to Mr. Korn within five days of entry of the order. The
receivership order gave Mr. Korn a lien on any partnership and
membership interests held by the Debtors, with a right to receive
any distributions from such interests. However, the Debtors did not
comply with the receivership order.

Mr. Korn filed a motion for criminal contempt, and the State Court
set a hearing on Mr. Korn's motion for October 17, 2017.
Subsequently, Mr. Korn filed his motion to excuse turnover of
estate assets under Section 543(d). The U.S. Trustee intends to
object to Mr. Korn’s turnover motion contemporaneously with the
filing of this motion.

The U.S. Trustee asserts that the insiders of Melton Ventures are
conflicted from managing the assets of the estate. Melton Ventures
listed, among its assets, possible causes of action against its own
members for mismanagement -- this creates an inherent conflict of
interest.

Specifically, the U.S. Trustee points out that Melton Ventures
admitted to pre-petition mismanagement when it scheduled possible
causes of action against its own members for "negligence or
mismanagement or breach of duty, including right of setoff." Mr.
Warden -- who testified as Melton Ventures' representative at the
November 17, 2017 Section 341 meeting -- admitted that he and Mr.
Melton did not properly manage the business prior to filing. Mr.
Melton and Mr. Warden are conflicted from pursuing such causes of
action against themselves on behalf of Melton Ventures. As such,
the U.S. Trustee asserts that a neutral third party trustee should
be appointed to pursue such causes of action.

The U.S. Trustee avers that these same insiders -- who are also
individual chapter 11 debtors -- mismanaged the assets of Melton
Ventures by permitting the Havana Social Club TABC license to
lapse. Havana Social Club is a cigar bar located at American
Airlines Center in Dallas, Texas. Mr. Warden testified at the 341
meeting that he and Mr. Melton are the sole employees of Havana
Social Club. The Havana Social Club was cited on August 5, 2017 for
failure to maintain an acceptable conduct surety bond, which led to
the cancellation of TABC license number MB953970.

The U.S. Trustee contends that the Debtors failed to comply with a
pre-petition State Court Order directing them to turnover assets
and information to a Receiver, which raises questions about their
ability to comply with Bankruptcy Code requirements.

The U.S. Trustee claims that the Debtors filed for chapter 11
bankruptcy to forestall the State Court proceeding on a Receiver's
motion for criminal contempt. The Debtors had been directed in
April 25, 2017 to comply with a State Court Order directing them to
turn over assets and records to Mr. Korn, who had been appointed by
the State Court to collect and liquidate assets for the benefit of
a judgment creditor. Even though Debtors were represented at the
time, they did not comply with the order.  

Furthermore, the Debtors' bankruptcy schedules and statement of
financial affairs contain numerous inaccuracies and omissions.
Melton Ventures did not accurately disclose payments to insiders in
the two years before filing on its SOFA. Mr. Melton averred on
Schedule J that he earned $8,500 in pension revenue, although he is
not due to receive such income for another four years. Mr. Melton
also failed to disclose the sale of his house in the year before
the filing of his bankruptcy and the disposition of assets from
that sale.

Counsel for Melton Ventures and Mr. Melton have informed the United
States Trustee that they do not oppose entry of an order directing
appointment of chapter 11 trustees.

As such, the U.S. Trustee asserts that separate trustees should be
appointed in each case given possible conflicts of interests
arising between the Melton Ventures, Melton, and Warden bankruptcy
estates.

The U.S. Trustee also believes that Mr. Melton appears to be using
a bank account belonging to Worst Behavior LLC, which is a Melton
Ventures entity. Cause exists therefore exists for a different
trustee for each estate.

The U.S. Trustee claims that cause exists to convert Mr. Warden's
bankruptcy to 7 given that there is no reasonable likelihood of Mr.
Warden funding a plan of reorganization. Mr. Warden's only income
comes from the Havana Social Club, which is not sufficient to fund
a plan of reorganization. The U.S. Trustee contends that a chapter
7 trustee may be able to negotiate with the Melton Ventures trustee
to determine how much, if any, monies, may be used to pay Mr.
Warden's creditors from his ownership interest.

The U.S. Trustee contends that Mr. Warden's bankruptcy paperwork is
rife with inaccuracies; for example, he listed a post office box as
his resident on his petition; failed to disclose an interest in a
vehicle; provided incomplete information about his employment or
dependents; and declared on his statement of financial affairs that
he has earned no money on SOFA 4 or 5 -- which constitutes
additional cause to convert Mr. Warden's case to chapter 7.

HARD ROCK EXPLORATION: HNB Has Lien on All Assets, Court Says
-------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Frank W. Volk of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of West Virginia addresses the motion by Debtors Hard Rock
Exploration, Inc., and affiliates to use cash collateral. The Court
held hearings on the cash collateral motion on Sept. 28 and Oct. 4,
2017, and requested further briefing. The Huntington National Bank
filed its post-hearing brief and then a follow-up brief.

The Court presently takes on the extent of HNB's lien and the
extent of the Debtors' assets that constitute collateral.

HNB's interest in the Debtors' property is set forth in the Deeds
of Trust, which have been recorded in various counties, and the
UCC-1 Financing Statements filed with the West Virginia Secretary
of State.

The Court notes that at the outset, one consideration seems
apparent: the parties' mutual intention was for HNB ito have a lien
on every asset owned by the Debtors, given the $26 million scale
resulting from the ongoing draw and lending relationship. In order
to see the extent to which that objective was accomplished, the
Court turned to the documentary web consisting of the Deeds of
Trust and Financing Statements.

The Court finds that the language in the Deeds of Trust neither
ambiguous nor difficult to understand. HNB has a lien on all of the
property listed in Exhibit A. The next sentence, line (b), does not
modify and is not modified by line (a), because there is no
modifying contraction between the two. They are separate and
distinct entries in list form. Thus, "Gas System" and "Gas
Contracts" are not modified by or limited to the "Lands described
in Exhibit A." The entire gas system and any and all contracts
relating to the production, processing, storage, or transportation
of gas produced by the gas system are encompassed within line (b)
of the Deeds of Trust. This would mean, for example, that HNB has a
lien on any interest of the Debtors in any contracts dealing with
the management of wells in the system, along with transportation
and sale of gas.

HNB also has a lien in any related fixtures, and in the gas itself,
as the "as extracted collaterals" indicates. Most importantly, HNB
has a lien on any cash or proceeds following from the Gas System or
any Gas Contract, as listed in line (d), which includes "the
proceeds and products of the foregoing." And that final word --
"foregoing" -- means that line (d) is modified by its three
predecessor lines. Thus, any product or proceed from any collateral
on lines (a)- (c) is captured by HNB's lien.

And, inasmuch as West Virginia recognizes after-acquired property
clauses, the language indicates that HNB has a lien on any asset
acquired by the Debtors following the effective date of the Deeds
of Trust. There is no question that the security producing
instruments before the Court provide HNB with a lien on all assets
of the Debtors, along with any asset of the like that may be
acquired in the future. That is the only natural reading of the
subject provisions in the Deeds of Trust.

It is also consistent with the nature of the lending relationship.
The liens secure a line of credit, which is an obligation that does
not naturally reduce over time in a situation like this, as a
mortgage would. Thus, it makes perfect sense that after-acquired
property would be covered under the Deeds of Trust and HNB's  lien
would continue to be secured, regardless of which gas wells or gas
contracts or operating agreements or real property the Debtors sold
or bought or lost or gained during the entire lending
relationship.

HOVNANIAN ENTERPRISES: Incurs $332.2M Net Loss in Fiscal 2017
-------------------------------------------------------------
Hovnanian Enterprises, Inc., filed with the Securities and Exchange
Commission its annual report on Form 10-K reporting a net loss of
$332.2 million on $2.45 billion of total revenues for the year
ended Oct. 31, 2017, compared to a net loss of $2.81 million on
$2.75 billion of total revenues for the year ended Oct. 31, 2016.

As of Oct. 31, 2017, Hovnanian Enterprises had $1.90 billion in
total assets, $2.36 billion in total liabilities and a total
stockholders' deficit of $460.37 million.

According to Hovnanian, "Our ability to meet our debt service and
other obligations will depend upon our future performance.  We are
engaged in businesses that are substantially affected by changes in
economic cycles.  Our revenues and earnings vary with the level of
general economic activity in the markets we serve.  Our businesses
are also affected by customer sentiment and financial, political,
business, and other factors, many of which are beyond our control.
The factors that affect our ability to generate cash can also
affect our ability to raise additional funds for these purposes
through the sale of equity securities, the refinancing of debt, or
the sale of assets.  Changes in prevailing interest rates may
affect our ability to meet our debt service obligations to the
extent we have any floating rate indebtedness.  A higher interest
rate on our debt service obligations could result in lower earnings
or increased losses.

"Our sources of liquidity are limited and may not be sufficient to
meet our needs.

"We are largely dependent on our current cash balance and future
cash flows from operations (which may not be positive) to enable us
to service our indebtedness, to cover our operating expenses,
and/or to fund our other liquidity needs.  Cash provided from
operating activities in fiscal 2017 and fiscal 2016 were $297.6
million and $387.7 million, respectively.  Depending on the levels
of our land purchases, we could generate negative or positive cash
flow in future years.  In 2016, we used a significant portion of
cash to repay debt because financing was unavailable to us in the
capital and loan markets.  If the homebuilding industry does not
experience improved conditions over the next several years, our
cash flows could be insufficient to fund our obligations and
support land purchases; if we cannot buy additional land we would
ultimately be unable to generate future revenues from the sale of
houses.  In addition, we will need to refinance all or a portion of
our debt on or before maturity including amounts outstanding under
our unsecured revolving credit facility which matures in 2018, $369
million principal of unsecured senior notes which will mature
during calendar year 2019, and our $75 million Term Loan which will
mature in 2019 (subject to earlier maturity if our 7.0% Senior
Notes due 2019 have not been refinanced with a maturity date after
January 15, 2021), which we may not be able to do on favorable
terms or at all.  If our cash flows and capital resources are
insufficient to fund our debt service obligations (pursuant to the
terms of certain of our senior secured notes we generally must
refinance our unsecured senior notes due 2019 and may not use cash
to satisfy our obligations thereunder) or we are unable to
refinance our indebtedness, we may be forced to reduce or delay
investments and capital expenditures, sell assets, seek additional
capital, or restructure our indebtedness.  These alternative
measures may not be successful or, if successful, made on desirable
terms and may not permit us to meet our debt service obligations.
We have also entered into certain cash collateralized letters of
credit agreements and facilities that require us to maintain
specified amounts of cash in segregated accounts as collateral to
support our letters of credit issued thereunder.  If our available
cash and capital resources are insufficient to meet our debt
service and other obligations, we could face liquidity problems and
might be required to dispose of material assets or operations to
meet our debt service and other obligations.  We may not be able to
consummate those dispositions or the proceeds from the dispositions
may not be permitted under the terms of our debt instruments to be
used to service indebtedness or may not be adequate to meet any
debt service obligations then due.

"Our cash flows, liquidity and consolidated financial statements
could be materially and adversely affected if we are unable to
obtain letters of credit.

"Our homebuilding operations often require us to obtain letters of
credit.  We have an unsecured revolving credit facility under which
letters of credit may be issued, which matures in 2018.  We also
have certain stand-alone letter of credit facilities and agreements
pursuant to which letters of credit are issued. However, we may
need additional letters of credit above the amounts provided under
these facilities and agreements.  If we are unable to obtain such
additional letters of credit as needed to operate our business, we
may be adversely affected, particularly in light of the upcoming
maturity of our unsecured revolving credit facility.

"We may have difficulty in obtaining the additional financing
required to operate and develop our business.

"Our operations require significant amounts of cash, and we may be
required to seek additional capital, whether from sales of debt or
equity securities or borrowing additional money, for the future
growth and development of our business.  The terms and/or
availability of additional capital is uncertain.  Moreover, the
agreements governing our outstanding debt instruments contain
provisions that restrict the debt we may incur in the future
(including a requirement (i) to refinance our 7% Senior Notes due
2019 and 8% Senior Notes due 2019 (the "Existing Unsecured Notes")
with indebtedness that may not be scheduled to mature earlier than
our 10.50% Senior Notes due 2024 or equity, subject to an exception
for up to $50 million of cash repurchases and (ii) in our $75.0
million senior secured term loan facility (the "Term Loan
Facility") and the 9.50% Senior Secured Notes due 2020 that any new
or refinancing indebtedness may not be scheduled to mature earlier
than specified dates in 2021) and our ability to pay dividends on
equity.  If we are not successful in obtaining sufficient capital,
it could reduce our sales and may hinder our future growth and
results of operations.  In addition, pledging substantially all of
our assets to support our term loans and our senior secured notes
may make it more difficult to raise additional financing in the
future.

"Restrictive covenants in our debt instruments may restrict our and
certain of our subsidiaries' ability to operate, and if our
financial performance worsens, we may not be able to undertake
transactions within the restrictions of our debt instruments."

In April 2016, Moody's Investors Service downgraded the Corporate
Family Rating of Hovnanian Enterprises to 'Caa2' and Probability of
Default Rating to 'Caa2-PD'.  The downgrade of the Corporate Family
Rating reflects Moody's expectation that Hovnanian will need to
dispose of assets and seek alternative financing methods in order
to meet its upcoming debt maturity wall.

In July 2017, S&P Global Ratings affirmed its 'CCC+' corporate
credit rating on Hovnanian Enterprises Inc.  The rating outlook is
negative.  The negative outlook reflects the potential for a
downgrade over the next 12-18 months if it appears Hovnanian will
experience difficulty or delays raising capital through land
banking arrangements, joint ventures, or other transactions in
amounts sufficient to meet upcoming debt maturities.

In July 2017, Fitch Ratings affirmed the ratings of Hovnanian

HOVNANIAN ENTERPRISES: Obtains $125M Financing Commitment from GSO
------------------------------------------------------------------
Hovnanian Enterprises, Inc., has entered into financing commitments
with GSO Capital Partners LP, Blackstone's credit platform, certain
funds managed or advised by it to refinance certain of the
Company's debt securities maturing in 2019 and to purchase $25
million of the Company's secured debt securities.  In connection
with this agreement, the Company will pay down certain debt
securities coming due in the next one to two years, which will be
replaced with longer-term financing, most of which will not be due
until 2026 and beyond.

In addition to these refinancings, the GSO parties have committed
to provide the Company with a new $125 million senior secured first
lien revolving credit facility.  The Company intends to use $75
million of this revolving credit facility to refinance its current
$75 million first priority secured term loan subsequent to the
expiration of such term loan's no-call period in September of 2018.
The remaining portion of the credit facility will be available to
the Company for general corporate purposes and provide the Company
with additional financial flexibility.

According to Hovnanian, its senior management and Board of
Directors thoroughly evaluated a range of available options to
strategically manage the Company's debt obligations, with several
financial firms competing to refinance the Company's existing debt.
After careful review and due diligence, the Company decided to
pursue the refinancing transactions with GSO.

"We continue to take steps to de-risk our balance sheet and enhance
our financial flexibility in support of our long-term operations.
We are pleased to enter into these financing and refinancing
transactions with affiliates of GSO, the credit platform of
Blackstone, one of the preeminent investment firms in the world,"
said Ara Hovnanian, president, chief executive officer and Chairman

Hovnanian Enterprises had $1.90 billion in total assets, $2.36
billion in total liabilities and a total stockholders' deficit of
$460.37 million.

                          *     *     *

In April 2016, Moody's Investors Service downgraded the Corporate
Family Rating of Hovnanian Enterprises to 'Caa2' and Probability of
Default Rating to 'Caa2-PD'.  The downgrade of the Corporate Family
Rating reflects Moody's expectation that Hovnanian will need to
dispose of assets and seek alternative financing methods in order
to meet its upcoming debt maturity wall.

In July 2017, S&P Global Ratings affirmed its 'CCC+' corporate
credit rating on Hovnanian Enterprises Inc.  The rating outlook is
negative.  The negative outlook reflects the potential for a
downgrade over the next 12 to 18 months if it appears Hovnanian
will experience difficulty or delays raising capital through land
banking arrangements, joint ventures, or other transactions in
amounts sufficient to meet upcoming debt maturities.

In July 2017, Fitch Ratings affirmed the ratings of Hovnanian
Enterprises, including the company's Long-term Issuer Default
Rating (IDR) at 'CCC'.


HOVNANIAN ENTERPRISES: Offers to Exchange up to $185M Senior Notes
------------------------------------------------------------------
Hovnanian Enterprises, Inc., said that its wholly-owned subsidiary,
K. Hovnanian Enterprises, Inc., has commenced a private offer to
exchange up to $185,000,000 aggregate principal amount of the
Issuer's outstanding 8.000% Senior Notes due 2019 for (1) cash, (2)
its newly issued 13.5% Senior Notes due 2026 and (3) its newly
issued 5.0% Senior Notes due 2040 on the terms and subject to the
conditions set forth in a Confidential Offering Memorandum, dated
Dec. 28, 2017, and in the related Letter of Transmittal.

The Exchange Offer will expire at 11:59 p.m., New York City time,
on Jan. 29, 2018, unless extended or earlier terminated.  Holders
of the Existing Notes must validly tender their Existing Notes at
or before the Expiration Time in order to be eligible to receive
the Exchange Consideration.  Existing Notes tendered may be
withdrawn at any time prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time on
Jan. 29, 2018, unless extended, but not thereafter, unless required
by applicable law.

In exchange for each $1,000 principal amount of Existing Notes and
integral multiples thereof validly tendered (and not validly
withdrawn prior to the Withdrawal Deadline) prior to the Expiration
Time, and accepted by the Company in an amount not to exceed the
Maximum Tender Amount, participating holders of Existing Notes will
receive (1) an amount of cash equal to the product of (a) $1,000
multiplied by (b) the quotient of (i) $26,000,000 divided by (ii)
the total principal amount of the Existing Notes validly tendered
in connection with the Exchange Offer, (2) an additional amount in
cash equal to the product of (a) the Cash Amount multiplied by (b)
0.02000, (3) the principal amount of New 2026 Notes equal to the
product of (a) the sum of (i) $1,000 minus (ii) the Cash Amount
multiplied by (b) 0.62827 and (4) the principal amount of New 2040
Notes equal to the product of (a) the sum of (i) $1,000 minus (ii)
the Cash Amount multiplied by (b) 0.62500.

An aggregate of $26,000,000 in principal amount of the Existing
Notes that are validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn prior to
the Withdrawal Deadline) will be purchased by K. Hovnanian at
Sunrise Trail III, LLC, one of the Issuer's wholly-owned
subsidiaries.  The Subsidiary Purchaser will be responsible for the
cash component of the Exchange Consideration to be paid in
connection with the Exchange Offer.

Holders of Existing Notes validly tendered (and not validly
withdrawn prior to the Withdrawal Deadline) and accepted by the
Company will not be entitled to receive accrued and unpaid
interest, if any, on their exchanged Existing Notes.  Holders will
only be entitled to receive the Exchange Consideration for all
Existing Notes validly tendered by such holder prior to the
Expiration Time (and not validly withdrawn prior to the Withdrawal
Deadline) and accepted by the Company.  The aggregate Exchange
Consideration in respect of each participating holder for all
Existing Notes validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn prior to
the Withdrawal Deadline) and accepted by us will be rounded down,
if necessary, to $2,000 or the nearest whole multiple of $1,000 in
excess thereof.  This rounded amount will be the principal amount
of New Notes you will receive as part of the Exchange
Consideration, and no additional cash will be paid in lieu of any
principal amount of New Notes not received as a result of such
rounding down.  Any such adjustment will apply to all Existing
Notes tendered and accepted in the Exchange Offer.

Subject to the terms and conditions of the Exchange Offer being
satisfied or waived (if applicable), the Hovnanian Parties will,
after the Expiration Time, accept for exchange all Existing Notes
validly tendered prior to the Expiration Time (and not validly
withdrawn before the Withdrawal Deadline) in an amount not to
exceed the Maximum Tender Amount.  If Existing Notes are validly
tendered (and not validly withdrawn prior to the Withdrawal
Deadline) prior to the Expiration Time in an aggregate principal
amount in excess of the Maximum Tender Amount, such tendered
Existing Notes will be subject to proration and only an aggregate
principal amount of Existing Notes equal to the Maximum Tender
Amount will be accepted for exchange on a pro rata basis.  The
Hovnanian Parties expect to pay the Exchange Consideration for the
Existing Notes and issue the New Notes within three business days
of the Expiration Time.

In connection with the Exchange Offer, the Company and the Issuer
also entered into a commitment letter with GSO Capital Partners LP,
on its behalf and on behalf of certain funds managed, advised or
sub-advised by it.  Pursuant to the Commitment Letter, the GSO
Commitment Parties will, among other things, provide the principal
amount of each of the following credit facilities: (i) a senior
unsecured term loan credit facility to be borrowed by the Issuer,
pursuant to which the GSO Commitment Parties have committed to lend
the Issuer $132.5 million of initial term loans on the settlement
date of the Exchange Offer for purposes of refinancing the Issuer's
7.000% Senior Notes due 2019, and up to $80.0 million of delayed
draw term loans for purposes of redeeming or repaying the Issuer's
Existing Notes, at or prior to maturity, that do not participate in
the Exchange Offer, in each case upon the terms and subject to the
conditions set forth therein, and (ii) a senior secured first lien
revolving credit facility to be borrowed by the Issuer, pursuant to
which the GSO Commitment Parties have committed to lend to the
Issuer up to $125.0 million of senior secured first priority
revolving loans to fund the repayment of the Issuer's $75.0 million
senior secured term loan facility and for other general corporate
purposes, upon the terms and subject to the conditions set forth
therein.  In addition, pursuant to the Commitment Letter, the GSO
Commitment Parties have committed to purchase, and the Issuer has
agreed to issue and sell, on Jan. 15, 2019 (or such later date
within five business days as mutually agreed by the parties working

Issuer's 10.500% Senior Secured Notes due 2024, upon the terms and
subject to the conditions set forth therein.

The Hovnanian Parties' obligation to accept for exchange any
Existing Notes validly tendered and not validly withdrawn before
the Withdrawal Deadline pursuant to the Exchange Offer is
conditioned upon the satisfaction or, if applicable, waiver of
certain conditions, which are more fully described in the Offering
Memorandum, including, among others, (1) entry into and
effectiveness of the Financing Arrangements, (2) at least $140.0
million in aggregate principal amount of the Existing Notes having
been validly tendered (and not validly withdrawn prior to the
Withdrawal Deadline) by holders thereof, including GSO, prior to
the Expiration Time and accepted by the Company, (3) the Support
Agreement (as defined below) being in full force and effect, (4)
receipt of consents from a majority of the outstanding principal
amount of each the Issuer's 10.000% Senior Secured Notes due 2022
and the 10.500% Notes to certain proposed amendments to the

certain other conditions, including the absence of certain

On Dec. 28, 2017, the Company, the Issuer and the Subsidiary
Purchaser also entered into a support agreement with certain of the
GSO Commitment Parties, pursuant to which such GSO Commitment
Parties have agreed to participate in the Exchange Offer.  Pursuant
to the terms of the Support Agreement, such GSO Commitment Parties
have agreed to tender (i) $106,378,000 in aggregate principal
amount of the Existing Notes owned on the date of the Support
Agreement, (ii) $20,440,000 in aggregate principal amount of the
Existing Notes beneficially owned on the date of the Support
Agreement that are subject to a repurchase agreement and (iii) any
Existing Notes acquired after such date.  The obligations of such
GSO Commitment Parties to tender their Existing Notes in the
Exchange Offer are generally subject to the terms and conditions
set forth in the Support Agreement, as more fully described
therein, which include requirements for the Issuer to consummate
the Exchange Offer upon the terms and conditions set forth in the
Exchange Offer Documents and limitations on the Company and the
Issuer from making certain material modifications, amendments or
waivers to the terms and conditions of the Exchange Offer and the
Exchange Offer Documents without such GSO Commitment Parties' prior
consent.

The obligations under the New Notes will be fully and
unconditionally guaranteed by the Company, and substantially all of
its subsidiaries, other than the issuer of the New Notes, the
Subsidiary Purchaser, the Company’s home mortgage subsidiaries,

HOVNANIAN ENTERPRISES: Seeking OK to Amend $840M Notes Indenture
----------------------------------------------------------------
Hovnanian Enterprises, Inc., announced that its wholly owned
subsidiary, K. Hovnanian Enterprises, Inc., has commenced the

Hovnanian's 10.000% Senior Secured Notes due 2022 and 10.500%
Senior Secured Notes due 2024.  The Consent Solicitation with
respect to each Series of Notes is a separate Consent Solicitation
and is not conditioned upon the other Consent Solicitation.  The
Consent Solicitations are being made in accordance with the terms
and subject to the conditions stated in a Consent Solicitation
Statement, dated Dec. 28, 2017.  As of the date of the Consent
Solicitation Statement, the aggregate outstanding principal amount
of the 2022 Notes was $440,000,000, and the aggregate outstanding
principal amount of the 2024 Notes was $400,000,000.

Each Consent Solicitation is scheduled to expire at 5:00 p.m., New

consideration equal to $2.50 per $1,000 principal amount of Notes
for which consents have been validly delivered prior to the
applicable Expiration Date (and not validly revoked).  Holders
providing consents after the applicable Expiration Date will not

to consenting holders as promptly as practicable after the
satisfaction or waiver of the conditions to the Consent

or retire for value K. Hovnanian's 7.000% Senior Notes due 2019 and
8.000% Senior Notes due 2019 and refinancing or replacement

be promptly after receipt of the Requisite Consents for the
applicable Series of Notes and may occur prior to the applicable
Expiration Date if the Requisite Consents for such Series of Notes

HUMANIGEN INC: Has Deal to Swap $16.3 Million Debt for Equity
-------------------------------------------------------------
Humanigen, Inc., has entered into definitive agreements with its
lenders to, among other things, exchange the entire balance of
approximately $16.3 million in term loans for common stock of the
company.  The transactions are expected to close in the first
quarter of 2018 subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions
contained in the definitive agreements.

Humanigen will also receive a new $3 million investment from an
affiliate of Black Horse Capital, one of the lenders, to fund the
company and its transformational new strategy of developing the
monoclonal antibodies lenzilumab and ifabotuzumab in the
fast-growing and exciting areas of immunotherapy and oncology.

The company has begun work with leading key opinion leaders in the
chimeric antigen receptor T-cell (CAR-T) therapy field to advance
lenzilumab into phase 1 trials for the prevention of neurotoxicity
associated with CAR-T therapy.  Lenzilumab is an antagonist of
circulating granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor
(GM-CSF).  GM-CSF is thought to be a potential key factor in
neurotoxicity, and perhaps other side-effects, associated with
CAR-T therapy.

By neutralizing circulating GM-CSF, and upon demonstrating
meaningful effects on neurotoxicity without hampering the efficacy
of CAR-T, lenzilumab has the potential to make CAR-T therapy:

   * safer by lessening neurotoxicity

   * more effective by allowing higher CAR-T doses, greater CAR-T
     expansion, and potentially reducing myeloid-derived
     suppressor cells (MDSC) that inhibit T cell function

   * a more routine out-patient procedure

Humanigen also continues to enroll patients in its phase 1 study of
lenzilumab for the treatment of chronic myelomonocytic leukemia
(CMML), a rare hematologic cancer, with interim data expected in
the first half of 2018.

In addition, the other key asset in the Humanigen monoclonal
antibody portfolio, ifabotuzumab, has been dosed in the first
patient in an investigator-sponsored phase 0/1 radio-labeled
imaging trial in glioblastoma multiforme (GBM), a particularly
aggressive and deadly brain cancer.  According to the investigators
at the Olivia Newton-John Cancer Research Institute in Australia,
the trial will seek to confirm the safety of ifabotuzumab and
potentially determine the best dose to effectively penetrate brain
tumors.  The investigators expect 12 patients to participate in the
trial, for which eligibility criteria are recurrent GBM and receipt
of only one type of chemotherapy for disease recurrence.  The
company also is exploring partnering opportunities to enable
further development of ifabotuzumab as a potential treatment for
certain solid and hematologic cancers as an antibody-drug conjugate
(ADC) and as a CAR-T construct.

"This transaction resets Humanigen as a cutting-edge science
immunotherapy and oncology biotechnology company," said Cameron
Durrant, MD, chairman and CEO.  "By following the recent, exciting,
ground-breaking science related to lenzilumab's potential utility
to help in CAR-T therapy, as well as a new clinical trial for
ifabotuzumab, we are writing a new history for Humanigen driven by
science to help patients with new medical innovations."

At the transactions' closing, the company will issue 59,786,848 new
shares of common stock to the lenders in exchange for the
satisfaction and extinguishment of the company's obligations with
respect to its outstanding secured loans.  In addition, at closing,
Humanigen will assign all of its assets and rights related to its
former benznidazole drug candidate to a new entity formed and
controlled by one of the lenders.  As previously reported, these
assets and rights are no longer relevant to the company's
forward-looking business plan.  The company will issue 32,028,669
new shares of common stock to an affiliate of Black Horse Capital
for $3 million, of which $1.5 million in new capital is expected to
be received by the company on Dec. 22, 2017 in the form of a
secured loan that will be converted into common stock at the close.
In total, these transactions provide $19.3 million of value to the
company in return for the issuance of approximately 91.8 million
shares of stock; common stock currently outstanding will represent
14% of the post-closing total outstanding shares.

The total number of new shares to be issued to affiliates of Black
Horse Capital at the closing of these transactions, when combined
with their existing ownership stakes, will result in Black Horse
Capital and its affiliates owning more than 50% of the company's
outstanding shares of common stock.

                     About Humanigen, Inc.

Formerly known as KaloBios Pharmaceuticals, Inc., Humanigen, Inc.,
(OTCQB: HGEN), -- http://www.humanigen.com/-- is a
biopharmaceutical company focused on advancing medicines for
patients with neglected and rare diseases through innovative,
accelerated business models.  Lead compounds in the portfolio are
benznidazole for the potential treatment of Chagas disease in the
U.S., and the proprietary monoclonal antibodies, lenzilumab and
ifabotuzumab.  Lenzilumab has potential for treatment of various
rare diseases, including hematologic cancers such as chronic
myelomonocytic leukemia (CMML) and juvenile myelomonocytic leukemia
(JMML).  Humanigen is based in Brisbane, California.

KaloBios filed a voluntary petition for bankruptcy protection under
Chapter 11 of Title 11 of the United States Bankruptcy Code (Bankr.
D. Del. Case No. 15-12628) on Dec. 29, 2015.  The Company was
represented by Eric D. Schwartz of Morris, Nichols, Arsht &
Tunnell.  KaloBios emerged from Chapter 11 bankruptcy six months
later.

HORNE LLP, in Ridgeland, Mississippi, issued a "going concern"
qualification on the consolidated financial statements for the year
ended Dec. 31, 2016, noting that the Company has recurring losses
from operations that raise substantial doubt about its ability to
continue as a going concern.

KaloBios reported a net loss of $27.01 million in 2016, following a
net loss of $35.37 million in 2015.  As of Sept. 30, 2017,
Humanigen had $2.56 million in total assets, $24.14 million in
total liabilities and a total stockholders' deficit of $21.57
million.


HYDROSCIENCE TECHNOLOGIES: Seeks Sale of All Assets to Seamap
-------------------------------------------------------------
Hydroscience Technologies, Inc. ("HTI"), and Solid Seismic, LLC,
ask the US Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Texas to
authorize the sale of all or virtually all of their assets
associated with or related to their intellectual property to Seamap
USA, LLC for (i) $3 million in cash; (ii) waiver or subordination
of distribution on POC No. 31 filed by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries,
Ltd. ("MHI") against HTI in the amount of $7.33 million; (iii)
waiver or subordination of distribution on POC No. 30 filed by
Seamap Pte, Ltd. against HTI in the amount of $3.95 million; (iv)
payment by the Debtors of $500,000 to Tokio Marine & Nichido Fire
Insurance Co. Ltd. on the Effective Date of the Debtors' Plan; and
(vi) waiver or subordination of distribution on the rest of POC No.
32 filed by Tokio Marine against HTI in the amount of $4.62
million.

The Debtors determined that the most appropriate course of action
in the case was to market and attempt to sell their business to
generate the maximum amount of funds possible for distribution to
creditors.  Early in their case, the Debtors engaged sale and
financial advisors, CR3 Partners, LLC, to commence the marketing of
their business.  CR3 Partners undertook a number of sales efforts
in relation to their assets, including sending out teasers to a
large number of prospects, including strategic acquirers, financial
buyers, private investors and other potential buyers.  This process
yielded nondisclosure agreements with several potentially
interested parties, many of whom have requested and obtained access
to the Debtors' online data room to perform due diligence.

Although the Debtors continue to engage in discussions with other
potentially interested parties, they do not believe such
discussions will result in comparable or better offers for the sale
of their assets.  Instead, the proposed sale under the APA, which
provides for the sale of the Purchased Assets to a newly-created,
wholly-owned subsidiary of Mitcham Industries, Inc. ("MII") and
would provide a substantial recovery to unsecured creditors through
their Plan, represents the best offer received to date for the
Debtors' assets in the opinion of the Debtors and their
professionals.

Moreover, because the Debtors have aggressively marketed and
solicited offers for the sale of substantially all of their assets,
including the Purchased Assets, they believe the likelihood of a
bidding and auction process providing another viable purchaser that
they haven't already identified is remote.  Furthermore, because
the proposed sale would provide a substantial recovery to unsecured
creditors, and their continued business operations are consuming
cash that would otherwise be available for distribution to
creditors, the Debtors need to expeditiously move forward with the
proposed sale.  As a result, they're ot requesting bidding
procedures and do not intend to hold an auction relating to the
sale of their assets.  Instead, they've incorporated the terms of
the proposed sale into their Plan.

The Debtors have filed the instant Motion to facilitate the sale of
the Purchased Assets to the Buyer pursuant to their Plan.  They've
also entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement between the Debtors,
MII, the Buyer, and MHI which provides for the sale of
substantially all of the Debtors' assets to the Buyer.  The sale
pursuant to the APA will occur as part of the Debtors' Plan
process, and remains subject to approval by the Court and
confirmation of the Debtors' Plan.

The material terms of the APA are:

SEAMAP USA, LLC

     a. Purchased Assets: All of the Debtors' (i) intellectual
property relating to their seismic streamer and recording system
technology (including, e.g., all patents, patent applications,

The Debtors and the Buyer are in the process of reviewing the
Debtors' executory contracts and the Buyer will know, prior to
closing, which executory contracts of the Debtors (if any) it
wishes to acquire.  All monetary defaults that must be cured under
Section 365(b) as a pre-condition to the assumption and assignment
of the Designated Contracts will be cured prior to the proposed
closing.  To assist in the assumption, assignment, and sale of the
Designated Contracts, the Debtors ask that the Court enters an
order providing that anti-assignment provisions in the Designated
Contracts will not restrict, limit, or prohibit the assumption,
assignment, and sale of the Designated Contracts and are deemed and
found to be unenforceable anti-assignment provisions within the
meaning of Section 365(f) of the Bankruptcy Code.

The Debtors further ask that any order approving the Motion be
effective immediately, thereby waiving the 14-day stays imposed by
Bankruptcy Rules 6004 and 6006.  These waivers or eliminations of
the 14-day stays are necessary for the sale to close as
expeditiously as possible or, at the latest, prior to expiration of
the Closing Deadline.

the Eastern District of Pennsylvania to hire Moretsky Law Firm as
counsel.

The professional services that Moretsky will render are:

neither an adverse interest to the Debtor nor any connections to

parties in interest, the United States Trustee or any person
employed in the office of the United States Trustee which would
disqualify the firm from representing the Debtor in this case.

LOMBARD PUBLIC: Court Amends Memorandum on Dec. 6 Decision
----------------------------------------------------------
Judge Jacqueline P. Cox of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Northern District of Illinois issued an amended memorandum opinion
with regard to the motions to dismiss filed by Lord Abbett
Municipal Income Fund, Inc. - Lord Abbett High Yield Municipal Bond
Fund and United States Trustee Patrick Layng.  

Lord Abbett and the U.S. Trustee separately sought the dismissal of
the bankruptcy case on the basis that the Debtor, the Lombard
Public Facilities Corporation is ineligible to be a debtor under
chapter 11 because it is a governmental unit. Mid- America Hotel
Partners, L.L.C. and Subordinated Securities, L.L.C. have joined
the motions to dismiss.

In this memo, Judge Cox adds that the Monorail Court noted that the
tax code definition of a governmental instrumentality is not the
same as the Bankruptcy Code's: "[r]egardless of treatment under the
tax code, however, the instrumentality test under the Bankruptcy
Code is separate and independent."

The motions to dismiss were denied on Dec. 6, 2017; those orders
still stand.

A full-text copy of the Judge Cox's Memorandum Opinion dated Dec.
18, 2017 is available at:

     http://bankrupt.com/misc/ilnb17-22517-268.pdf

            About Lombard Public Facilities Corp.

Lombard Public Facilities Corporation was established in 2003 by
the affluent Lombard Village in Illinois, to finance the
construction of a hotel and convention center, and is the owner of
the hotel and convention center for as long as any bonds remain
outstanding. The hotel and convention center, which opened in 2007,
includes 500 guest rooms and 39,000 square feet of flexible meeting
space with two full-service restaurants. The Hotel is and has been
operated and managed under the Westin brand by Westin Hotel
Management, L.P.

Lombard Public Facilities Corporation sought Chapter 11 protection
(Bankr. N.D. Ill. Case No. 17-22517) on July 28, 2017, after
reaching deals to restructure $246.6 million in debt. The petition
was signed by Paul Powers, president.

The Debtor estimated assets of $10 million to $50 million and debt
of $100 million to $500 million.

The Hon. Jacqueline P. Cox is the case judge.

The Debtor hired Adelman & Gettleman, Ltd. as bankruptcy counsel;
and Klein Thorpe & Jenkins, Ltd. and Taft Stettinius & Hollister,
LLP as special counsel.  Epiq Bankruptcy Solutions, LLC is the
noticing, claims, and/or solicitation agent.

The Debtor has long retained Klein, Thorpe, & Jenkins, Ltd. ("KTJ")
as its corporate counsel, and James D. Shanahan, now of the firm of
Taft, Stettinius & Hollander LLP ("TSH"), as its bond and tax
counsel.

EisnerAmper, which was engaged by the Debtor two years prior to the
petition date, is the financial advisor in the Chapter 11 case.


LONG ISLAND ICED TEA: Insufficient Cash Raises Going Concern Doubt
------------------------------------------------------------------
Long Island Iced Tea Corp. filed its quarterly report on Form 10-Q,
disclosing a net loss of $3.91 million on $1.55 million of net
sales for the three months ended September 30, 2017, compared with
a net loss of $4.89 million on $1.30 million of net sales for the
same period in 2016.

At September 30, 2017, the Company had total assets of $4,830,399,
total liabilities of $4,208,248, and $622,151 in total
stockholders' equity.

Historically, the Company's cash generated from operations has not
been sufficient to meet its expenses.  The Company has financed its
operations principally through the raising of equity capital, debt
and through trade credit with its vendors.  The Company's ability
to continue its operations and to pay its obligations when they
become due is contingent upon obtaining additional financing.
Management's plans include raising additional funds through equity
offerings, debt financings, or other means.

The Company believes that it will be able to raise sufficient
additional capital to finance its planned operating activities,
although there are no assurances that it will be able to raise such
capital on terms acceptable to the Company or at all.  If the
Company unable to obtain sufficient amounts of additional capital,
the Company may be required to reduce the scope of its planned
market development activities, and/or consider reductions in
personnel costs or other operating costs.  These conditions raise
substantial doubt about the Company's ability to continue as a
going concern.

MARINA BIOTECH: Revises Terms of $500,000 Convertible Note
----------------------------------------------------------
Marina Biotech, Inc., and a trust affiliated with Isaac Blech, a
director of the Company, executed an amendment to a note purchase
agreement dated Nov. 22, 2017, so that the penalty interest would
not accrue unless and until the Company does not consummate a
"Qualified Financing" on or before Feb. 15, 2018.  Other than such
amendment, the Note will remain unchanged.

On Nov. 22, 2017, Marina Biotech entered into the NPA with the
Purchaser pursuant to which the Company issued to the Purchaser a
secured convertible promissory note in the aggregate principal
amount of $500,000.  The Note will become due and payable on March
31, 2018.  The unpaid principal amount of the Note, together with
any interest accrued but unpaid thereon, will, in general,
automatically be converted into the securities of the Company to be
issued and sold at the closing of any financing transaction
involving the sale by the Company of its equity securities (or
securities exercisable for or convertible into the equity
securities of the Company) yielding aggregate gross proceeds to the
Company of not less than $5,000,000.

The Note provided that interest on the unpaid principal amount of
the Note will accrue at a rate equal to eight percent per annum;
provided, that if the Company does not consummate a Qualified
Financing on or before Dec. 15, 2017, then the interest rate will
increase to 20% per annum, with that increased interest rate
increasing by an additional two percent every month thereafter
until the Note is repaid in full (up to a maximum interest rate of
30%).

MOTORS LIQUIDATION: Extends Forbearance 'Outside Date' to Feb. 28
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Motors Liquidation Company GUC Trust is involved in litigation
concerning purported economic losses, personal injuries and/or
death suffered by certain lessees and owners of vehicles
manufactured by General Motors Corporation prior to its sale of
substantially all of its assets to NGMCO, Inc., n/k/a General
Motors LLC.  Certain of the Potential Plaintiffs have filed
lawsuits against New GM, filed motions seeking authority from the
Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York to file
claims against the GUC Trust, or are members of a putative class
covered by those actions.

As previously disclosed, including most recently in the November
2017 10-Q, the GUC Trust was previously engaged in discussions with
certain of the Potential Plaintiffs regarding a potential
settlement of the Late Claims Motions and various related issues,
and those discussions had meaningfully progressed.  The GUC Trust
ultimately did not execute the Potential Plaintiff Settlement.
Instead, after careful consideration and negotiations, on Sept. 12,
2017, the GUC Trust entered into a Forbearance Agreement with New
GM by which (i) the GUC Trust agreed not to seek an order
estimating the claims of the Potential Plaintiffs or seek the
issuance of additional "Adjustment Shares" from New GM until the
final resolution of certain litigation, (ii) New GM agreed to pay
the costs of the GUC Trust's litigation in connection with the Late
Claims Motions and related litigation, and (iii) New GM and the GUC
Trust agreed to negotiate an appropriate rate of return from New GM
should any GUC Trust distributions be held up solely due to the
Late Claims Motions litigation.

The Forbearance Agreement has been executed by the parties, but its
terms remain subject to certain conditions which may or may not
ever be satisfied, including obtaining the approval of the
Bankruptcy Court, together with a finding that the Proposed
Plaintiff Settlement was not binding on the GUC Trust.  By its
terms, the Forbearance Agreement was scheduled to automatically
terminate on Dec. 29, 2017 (the "Outside Date") in the event that
the Bankruptcy Court had not yet entered the Approval Order.  On
Dec. 28, 2017, the GUC Trust and New GM entered into a First
Amendment to Forbearance Agreement which had the effect of
extending the Outside Date to Feb. 28, 2018.

Whether the conditions precedent for the effectiveness of certain
terms of the New GM Agreement will, at any point, be satisfied is
uncertain and subject to numerous risks.  Accordingly, holders of
Units should carefully consider such uncertainty before making any
decisions with respect to their investment in such Units.

NATIONAL TRUCK: Wants Up To $1.5M Financing From Power Land
-----------------------------------------------------------
National Truck Funding, LLC, and its debtor-affiliates seek
permission from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District
of Mississippi to incur post-petition secured indebtedness with
Power Land, L.L.C., in the initial interim amount of $500,000 and
to incur post-petition secured indebtedness with Power Land in the
total principal amount of $1.5 million including the Interim DIP
Loan Amount.

The Debtor has an immediate need for the initial draw of the
Interim DIP Loan Amount to be effective within the next few weeks
to provide a line of credit for the purchase of Class 8 trucks with
lender approval and only in accordance with the budget, and
specifically limited by a Sources and Uses Budget.

Specifically, the Debtor is incurring ongoing and increasing
expenses repairing older trucks in its fleet and the Debtor has
immediate need for the Interim DIP Loan Amount to obtain new Class
8 trucks to replace portions of the Debtor's existing fleet and
thereby reduce repair costs incurred by the Debtor.

Power Land is willing to make the DIP Loan to the Debtor in the
principal amount of up to $1.5 million on the terms and conditions
set forth in the DIP Loan Term Sheet, and subject to executed loan
documents, in order to fund the Debtor's purchase of new Class 8
trucks including the initial draw of the Interim DIP Loan Amount.

The proposed Interim DIP Financing Order provides that if the
Debtor closes any alternative DIP financing transaction, Power Land
will be paid a DIP Breakup Fee in the amount of 4% of the DIP Loan
Amount as well as certain reasonable expenses and attorneys' fees.


The DIP Loan will be on a secured basis, with a first priority and
priming security interest and lien in and on all assets of the
Debtor, including newly purchased truck collateral but excluding
the existing truck collateral.

Additionally, the proposed DIP Financing Orders provide that Power
Land will be granted an administrative superpriority pursuant to
Section 364(c)(1) of the Bankruptcy Code and secured by a
super-priority first lien on all now owned or hereinafter acquired
assets and property of the Debtor's estate pursuant to Sections
362(c)(2), (c)(3), and 364(d) of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code excluding
the existing truck collateral against which third parties claim a
security interest.

The DIP Loan (and all accrued and unpaid interest thereon) will
become due and payable upon the earlier of (i) March 15, 2017; (ii)
the confirmation of the Debtor's Plan of Reorganization with the
period being extendable by the Power Land in writing at its
reasonable discretion; (iii) upon the appointment of a Chapter 11
Trustee, (iv) conversion to Chapter 7; or (v) the occurrence of an
event of default not cured within the applicable cure period.

The DIP Loan will enable the Debtor to increase revenues from its
fleet by reducing repair costs associated with older trucks in its
fleet and to successfully confirm and consummate the proposed plan
of reorganization.

NAVILLUS TILE: May Obtain Up to $135-Mil. of DIP Financing
----------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Sean H. Lane the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of New York has entered a final order authorizing Navillus
Tile, Inc., to borrow up to $135 million under a
debtor-in-possession facility.

Navillus will borrow funds under the DIP Facility only to the
extent that Navillus determines in the exercise of its sound
business judgment that borrowing pursuant to the project budget for
a particular Bonded Project(s) is necessary to ensure adequate
liquidity, after taking into account Navillus' then available
balances of cash and marketable securities, to enable Navillus to
operate in the ordinary course of business in completing the Bonded
Project and for payment of general corporate overhead expenses
related to such Bonded Project consistent with the permitted uses.

From and after the Petition Date, Navillus will use the proceeds of
the DIP Facility only for the purposes specifically set forth in
the final court order, the DIP Financing Agreement and any
documents executed pursuant thereto.  Notwithstanding anything to
the contrary in this Final Order or the DIP Financing Agreement, in
no event will any proceeds of the DIP Facility be used (a) for any
purpose that is not permitted under this Final Order; (b) in a
manner not consistent with any Bonded Project-specific budget or
supplemental Funding Request for a specific Bonded Project,
including documents supporting the need for such supplemental
Funding Request, provided to Liberty under the DIP Financing
Agreement, with copies delivered concurrently (but not less than
two business days notice) to proposed counsel and proposed
financial advisors for the Committee; (c) for any investigation or
analysis of any claim or cause of action against Liberty or any of
its affiliates; (d) for any preparation or prosecution of any claim
or cause of action against Liberty or any of its affiliates and (e)
absent further Court order, for the payment of bankruptcy
professional fees and expenses, or payments to insiders (as defined
in the Bankruptcy Code) outside the ordinary course of business for
uses that do not constitute Permitted Uses under the DIP Financing
Agreement.  Navillus will provide Liberty and the Committee with
updates on its cash balances and variance reports not less than on
a monthly basis.

Pursuant to Section 364(c)(l) of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code, but
subject to the Liberty carve-out, and to the rights of lien law
trust fund beneficiaries pursuant to Article 3-A of the Lien Law of
the State of New York, to the extent that the Post-Petition Lien
and Security Interest granted Liberty is insufficient to fully
satisfy the DIP Loan Obligations, Liberty will then be entitled to
an allowed superpriority administrative expense claim against
Navillus for (a) any amounts actually borrowed by Navillus under
the DIP Facility which have not been repaid, (b) unreimbursed
actual losses incurred by Liberty on any Bonded Projects due to a
post-petition performance breach or post-petition default on the
Bonded Project by Navillus, and (c) with respect to either of the
Bonded Projects entitled One Vanderbilt and Manhattan West,
unreimbursed actual losses incurred by Liberty due to a prepetition
default by Navillus on:

     (i) the One Vanderbilt Bonded Project, conditioned upon and
         provided that Liberty has advanced to Navillus under the
         DIP Facility not less than $10 million with respect to
         the One Vanderbilt Bonded Project, and

    (ii) the Manhattan West Bonded Project, conditioned upon and
         provided that Liberty has advanced to Navillus under the
         DIP Facility not less than $5 million with respect to the

         Manhattan West Bonded Project.  

The Superpriority Claim will have priority over any and all
administrative expense claims of the kind specified in sections
503(b) or 507(b) of the Bankruptcy Code, as provided under Sections
364(c)(1) and 105 of the Bankruptcy Code; and will all times be
senior to the rights of Navillus, and the estate, any successor
trustee or other estate representative and any creditor or other
party in interest to the extent permitted by law.  The
Superpriority Claim shall not extend to any avoidance actions under
Chapter 5 of the Bankruptcy Code or the proceeds thereof.

As security for the DIP Loan Obligations and without the necessity
of the execution, recordation of filings by Navillus of mortgages,
security agreements, control agreements, pledge agreements,
financing statements or other similar documents, or the possession
or control by Liberty or its agents over any collateral, Liberty is
granted a first priority, perfected and indefeasible lien on and
security interest in, pursuant to section 364(c)(2) of the
Bankruptcy Code, all of Navillus' assets directly related to the
Bonded Contracts, except for the Equipment, and except to the
extent any funds received by Navillus related to the Bonded
Contracts constitute trust funds under Article 3-A of the Lien Law
of the State of New York.  The Post-Petition Lien and Security
Interest will not extend to any avoidance actions under Chapter 5
of the Bankruptcy Code or the proceeds thereof.

Navillus is also authorized to use cash collateral until the time
of termination of the DIP Facility.

Navillus is authorized to advance funds, in an aggregate amount not
to exceed $7.7 million to Donal O'Sullivan, the principal
shareholder of Navillus, to be used solely for his allocable share
of estimated 2017 tax payments for New York City, New York State
and Federal taxes attributable to projected taxable income earned
by Navillus in 2017.  Navillus will advance the Estimated Tax
Payments for New York City, New York State and Federal taxes not
earlier than Dec. 26, 2017.  O'Sullivan will be obligated and
required to return to Navillus within three business days from
filing his extensions in April 2018 and/or his final tax returns
any portion of the Estimated Tax Payments in excess of the actual
amount of New York City, New York State and Federal taxes owed
based on the O'Sullivan's taxable income in 2017; provided,
however, that no portion of the Estimated Tax Payment will be used
to pay any taxes attributable to income other than the income
generated by a Navillus. Navillus and O’Sullivan shall promptly
provide the Committee with proof of payment and copies of
Navillus’ Form K-1 in redacted form to demonstrate the portions
of the Estimated Tax Payment allocable to Navillus.

The Court previously entered an interim order on Dec. 1, 2017,
authorizing Navillus to borrow up to $7.5 million on an interim
basis.

Navillus' ability to continue operating on its open construction
projects and maintain its business relationships with Tishman and
all project owners depends on obtaining immediate access to the DIP
Facility to address their concerns regarding Navillus' ability to
complete its open bonded construction projects.  The access of
Navillus to liquidity through the incurrence of new indebtedness
for borrowed money is vital for preserving and maintaining the
going concern value of Navillus.

Navillus is unable to obtain financing on terms more favorable than
those offered by Liberty under the DIP Facility and is unable to
obtain unsecured credit allowable under section 503(b)(l) of the
Bankruptcy Code as an administrative expense.  Navillus is also
unable to obtain secured credit under Section 364(c) of the
Bankruptcy Code on equal or more favorable terms than those offered
by Liberty under the DIP Facility.  Navillus has made an adequate
showing of its efforts to obtain financing on more favorable terms.
A credit facility in the amount and on the terms provided by the
DIP Facility is not available from Liberty without Navillus
granting Liberty (a) the Post-Petition Lien and Security Interest
and the Superpriority Claim as set forth herein, and (b) the other
protections.

The DIP Facility was negotiated without collusion, in good faith
and at arms’ length between and among Navillus and Liberty.  Use
of credit to be extended by Liberty to Navillus under the DIP
Facility will be deemed to have been so allowed, advanced, made,
used or extended in good faith, within the meaning of section
364(e) of the Bankruptcy Code and in express reliance on the
protections offered by section 364(e) of the Bankruptcy Code, and
Liberty is therefore entitled to the full protection and benefits
of section 364(e) of the Bankruptcy Code in the event that the
final court order or any provision hereof is vacated, reversed, or
modified, on appeal or otherwise.

ONE HORIZON: Five Directors Elected by Stockholders
---------------------------------------------------
One Horizon Group, Inc. held its 2017 Annual Meeting of
Stockholders on Dec. 28, 2017, at which the stockholders elected
Mark White, Martin Ward, Nicholas Carpinello, Richard Vos and
Robert Law as directors to serve for the following year or until
their successors are duly elected and qualified.  The stockholders
also ratified the selection of Cherry Bekaert, LLP as the Company's
independent registered public accounting firm for the year ending
Dec. 31, 2017.

                    About One Horizon Group

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

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

One Horizon reported a net loss of $5.54 million on $1.61 million
of revenue for the year ended Dec. 31, 2016, compared to a net loss
of $6.30 million on $1.53 million of revenue for the year ended in
2015.  As of Sept. 30, 2017, One Horizon had $8.67 million in total
assets, $4.25 million in total liabilities and $4.42 million in
total stockholders' equity.

According to the Company's Form 10-Q for the period ended Sept. 30,
2017, "[T]he Company will pursue its revised operations and
business plan.  The Company expects to incur further non cash
losses in 2017 which, when combined with any costs incurred in
pursuing acquisition of new businesses, may generate negative cash
flows.  As of Sept. 30, 2017, the Company did not have any
available credit facilities.  As a result, it is in the process of
seeking new financing by way of sale of either convertible debt or
equities.  While it has been successful in the past in obtaining
the necessary capital to support its investment and operations,
there is no assurance that it will be able to obtain additional
financing under acceptable terms and conditions, or at all.  In the
event that the Company is unable to obtain sufficient additional
funding when needed in order to fund operations, it would not be
able to continue as a going concern and may be forced to severely
curtail or cease operations and liquidate the Company."

                   About One Horizon Group

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

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

One Horizon reported a net loss of $5.54 million on $1.61 million
of revenue for the year ended Dec. 31, 2016, compared to a net loss
of $6.30 million on $1.53 million of revenue for the year ended in
2015.  As of Sept. 30, 2017, One Horizon had $8.67 million in total
assets, $4.25 million in total liabilities and $4.42 million in
total stockholders' equity.

According to the Company's Form 10-Q for the period ended Sept. 30,
2017, "[T]he Company will pursue its revised operations and
business plan.  The Company expects to incur further non cash
losses in 2017 which, when combined with any costs incurred in
pursuing acquisition of new businesses, may generate negative cash
flows.  As of Sept. 30, 2017, the Company did not have any
available credit facilities.  As a result, it is in the process of
seeking new financing by way of sale of either convertible debt or
equities.  While it has been successful in the past in obtaining
the necessary capital to support its investment and operations,
there is no assurance that it will be able to obtain additional
financing under acceptable terms and conditions, or at all.  In the
event that the Company is unable to obtain sufficient additional
funding when needed in order to fund operations, it would not be
able to continue as a going concern and may be forced to severely
curtail or cease operations and liquidate the Company."

ORANGE ACRES: Seeks February 27 Plan Filing Period Extension
------------------------------------------------------------
Orange Acres Ranch Homeowners Association, Inc. requests the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of Florida to extend:

     (1) the exclusive period during the Debtor has to file a plan
through February 27, 2018;

solicit acceptances of a plan through April 27, 2018; and

     (3) the deadline within which the Debtor has to file its plan
and disclosure statement through February 27, 2018.

The Court established December 29, 2017, as the deadline for the
Debtor to file its plan and disclosure statement. However, the
Debtor is still working on the plan and discussing plan treatment
with parties in interest. The Debtor claims that it had focused
efforts on third-party financing which is currently not available
due to the existence of agreements which are the subject of a
pending motion to reject. The Debtor has scheduled a meeting in
early January to attempt to work through plan issues.

ORANGE REGIONAL: Fitch Keeps BB+ Bond Rating on Watch Negative
--------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has maintained Orange Regional Medical Center's
(ORMC) 'BB+' rating (issued by the Dormitory Authority of the State
of New York on behalf of ORMC) on Rating Watch Negative. Fitch is
simultaneously withdrawing the rating on the following series of
bonds as ORMC has chosen to stop participating in the rating
process. Therefore, Fitch will no longer have sufficient
information to maintain the ratings. Accordingly, Fitch will no
longer provide ratings for ORMC.

-- Dormitory Authority of the State of New York series 2017
    (ORMC);
-- Dormitory Authority of the State of New York series 2015
    (ORMC);
-- Dormitory Authority of the State of New York series 2008
    (ORMC).

KEY RATING DRIVERS

CHANGE IN CRITERIA: The Negative Watch reflects ORMC's heightened
risk of transition under Fitch's 'Exposure Draft: U.S.
Not-for-Profit Hospitals and Health Systems Rating Criteria'
published on Sept. 6, 2017. ORMC's overall leverage profile was
identified as deviating from the expectations for the rating
category (as outlined in the rating positioning table in the
exposure draft) as part of an initial assessment of credits that
are most likely to transition under the new criteria.

RATING SENSITIVITIES

Ratings sensitivities are not applicable in this case, as the
rating is being withdrawn.

PLASTIC2OIL INC: Signs Deal for the License of P2O Technology
-------------------------------------------------------------
Plastic2Oil, Inc announced that on Dec. 21, 2017, it signed a
Master Agreement with Veridisyn Technologies, LLC, a company
engaged in development of alternative energy projects, under which
Veridisyn has agreed to license P2O's technology and purchase P2O
processors.  This new strategic partnership combines Veridisyn's
extensive experience in processing waste plastics with P2O's
proprietary technology for deriving ultra-clean, ultra-low sulphur
fuel that requires no further refining, directly from unwashed,
unsorted waste plastics.

As set forth in P2O's Form 8-K filed with the SEC on Dec. 22, 2017,
expected minimum gross proceeds to P2O will be $4 million from the
initial sale of two P2O processors to Veridisyn.  P2O believes the
strategic partnership, if successful, could result in the sale and
deployment of 30-40 processors at Veridisyn sites, for $90 million
to $120 million in future revenues (based on a $3 million price per
processor).

In addition, once the processors have been fully deployed, P2O will
receive a royalty of 5% of gross fuel sales by Veridisyn, and no
less than $0.50 per pound for use of its proprietary catalyst. P2O
will also provide on-going monitoring and maintenance services at
agreed upon costs and rates.  The term of the agreement is twenty
years.

According to P2O CEO, Rick Heddle, "By turning waste plastic into
fuel without any hazardous waste, this joint industry solution will
help accelerate plastic recycling in cities, towns and industrial
plants, and be a major step forward in meeting a significant
environmental challenge."

"I am very excited about moving forward with Plastic2Oil in
implementing its breakthrough technology to leverage the
substantial global market opportunity for plastic to fuel
solutions," said Veridisyn Managing Director Robin Curtis.

REIGN SAPPHIRE CORP: Limited Revenue Raises Going Concern Doubt
---------------------------------------------------------------
Reign Sapphire Corporation filed its quarterly report on Form 10-Q,
disclosing a net loss of $1,497,699 on $255,975 of net revenues for
the three months ended September 30, 2017, compared with a net loss
of $112,762 on $342,164 of net revenues for the same period in
2016.

At September 30, 2017, the Company had total assets of $2.13
million, total liabilities of $5.12 million, and $2.99 million in
total stockholders' deficit.

The Company had an accumulated deficit of approximately $9,206,000
and $6,130,000 at September 30, 2017 (Successor) and December 31,
2016 (Successor), respectively, had a working capital deficit of
approximately $4,331,000 and $2,128,000 at September 30, 2017
(Successor) and December 31, 2016 (Successor), respectively, had a
net loss of approximately $1,498,000 and $3,076,000, and $113,000
and $435,000 for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017
(Successor) and September 30, 2016 (Predecessor), respectively, and
net cash used in operating activities of approximately $174,000 and
$135,000 for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 (Successor)
and September 30, 2016 (Predecessor), respectively, with limited
revenue earned since inception, and a lack of operational history.
These matters raise substantial doubt about the Company’s ability
to continue as a going concern.

RENTECH WP: Seeks Authority to Access Cash Collateral
-----------------------------------------------------
Rentech W.P. U.S. Inc. and Rentech, Inc., seek authorization from
the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware to use cash
collateral for working capital and other costs and expenses
incurred in the ordinary course of their businesses, including
administration costs, in these Chapter 11 Cases.

The Debtors contend that after full consideration of Rentech's
potential strategic and financial alternatives and discussions with
certain potential investors, it became clear that there were no
viable out-of court refinancing or restructuring options for the
Debtors to pursue. Faced with a lack of viable financing options
and dwindling liquidity, and after extensive discussions with RPA
Advisors, LLC and Wells Fargo Securities, LLC, Rentech determined
that:

       (i) the sale of substantially all of the assets of (a)
subsidiary Fulghum Fibres, Inc. and its U.S. non-debtor
subsidiaries, (b) subsidiary New England Wood Pellet, LLC ("NEWP")
and its non-debtor subsidiaries, and (c) subsidiary RTK WP2 Canada,
ULC, which owns a wood pellet production facility located in
Atikokan, Ontario; and

       (ii) the liquidation of a wood pellet production facility in
Wawa, Ontario owned by RTK WP Canada, ULC pursuant to a
receivership, combined with the Debtors' bankruptcy filing in the
United States, was in the best interests of the Debtors and their
creditors.

Prior to the Petition Date, and following substantial due diligence
efforts and extensive discussions and negotiations, the Debtors and
their Advisors identified potential buyers to purchase
substantially all of the assets of Fulghum and NEWP. On December
15, 2017, Fulghum entered into an Asset Purchase Agreement with FFI
Acquisition, Inc., as the buyer, and Scott Davis Chip Company,
Inc., as the affiliate guarantor of the buyer. The base purchase
price under the Fulghum APA is $28,000,000.

NEWP has also had substantial negotiations, which remain ongoing,
regarding an agreement pursuant to which a buyer would purchase
substantially all of NEWP's assets and assume substantially all of
its liabilities. The Debtors expect the Non-Debtor Subsidiary Sales
to be consummated in early 2018.

The Debtors assert that the consummation of the Non-Debtor
Subsidiary Sales is dependent on a smooth transition into, and
swift exit from, chapter 11. Given the Debtors' current liquidity
position, access to cash collateral is crucial to ensure Rentech's
operations continue as usual while the Non-Debtor Subsidiary Sales
and the Atikokan sale are finalized. If the Debtors do not obtain
authorization to use cash collateral, the Debtors, their creditors
and their estates generally will suffer immediate and irreparable
harm because there will be a substantial risk that the Non-Debtor
Subsidiary Sales and/or the Atikokan sale will be disrupted.

The Debtors further assert that without the use of cash collateral,
they will not have the liquidity necessary to maintain operations
at Rentech through the pendency of these Chapter 11 Cases impacting
the ability of the Debtors to consummate the Non-Debtor Subsidiary
Sales -- which the Debtors are relying upon in order to be able to
making distributions to Holders of Allowed Claims, as provided for
in, and subject to, the Combined Plan and Disclosure Statement.

As of the Petition Date, the Debtors and Rentech Nitrogen Holdings,
Inc. (a Non-Debtor Subsidiary of Debtor Rentech, Inc.), were
indebted to the Prepetition Term Loan Lenders and Credit Suisse AG,
as administrative agent under the Prepetition Term Loan Documents
in the aggregate outstanding principal amount of approximately
$19.5 million. The Debtors believe that the Prepetition Term Loan
Lenders are over-secured by approximately $12.0 million.

The Debtor Rentech, Inc. is also a party to that certain L/C Credit
Agreement with Bank of Montreal, pursuant to which Bank of Montreal
agreed to extend $10 million of revolving credit to Rentech, Inc.,
which Rentech, Inc. was able to utilize in the form of standby
letters of credit issued by Bank of Montreal for the account of
Rentech, Inc. and its Subsidiaries. The aggregate outstanding
principal amount under the Prepetition L/C Credit Agreement is
approximately $455,000. The Debtors believe that Bank of Montreal
is over-secured by approximately $12.0 million

As adequate protection for any postpetition diminution in value of
the Prepetition Lenders' interests in the Debtors' interests in the
prepetition collateral, the Prepetition Lenders will granted the
following:

     (a) The prepetition liens on the prepetition collateral will
remain in place.

     (b) Additional and replacement valid, binding, enforceable,
non-avoidable, and automatically perfected post-petition liens on,
and security interests in, all property and assets of each of the
Debtors and each of the Debtors' estates, including all proceeds,
rents, or profits thereof. Each of the Prepetition Lenders will
have the same priority as set forth in that certain Pari Passu
Intercreditor Agreement, between Credit Suisse AG, as Initial
Credit Agreement Agent and Bank of Montreal, as BMO Claimholders,
and acknowledged and agreed to by Rentech, Inc.

     (c) Each of the Prepetition Lenders will also be granted pari
passu superpriority claims under Bankruptcy Code Section 507(b) to
the extent that the aggregate diminution in value of the
Prepetition Lenders' interests in the prepetition collateral, from
and after the Petition Date, reduces the value of the Adequate
Protection Liens below the outstanding balance of the Prepetition
Obligations.

     (d) The Prepetition Term Loan Obligations will continue to
accrue interest at the default contract rate set forth in the
Prepetition Term Loan Documents.

     (e) All reasonable fees and expenses incurred after the
Petition Date by the advisors to the Prepetition Term Loan Lenders,
including lead counsel, Canadian counsel or any other local counsel
to the Prepetition Term Loan Lenders, will accrue and be added to
the amount of the Prepetition Term Loan Obligations.

     (f) Commencing on January 3, 2018, the Debtors will provide
the Prepetition Lenders with an updated rolling 13-week cash flow
statement which will include a variance report comparing actual
cash flow results for all applicable prior periods to the
forecasted cash flow results for such periods, a statement of any
weekly or cumulative variances in any line item for receipts or
disbursements and any proposed amendments to the Budget.

The consensual use of cash collateral and the Debtors' right to use
prepetition collateral, including cash collateral, automatically
terminates upon the occurrence of any of these Events of Default:

     (a) Failure to obtain the Final Order on or within thirty-five
days after the Petition Date;

     (b) Failure to file a motion seeking approval of
debtor-in-possession financing acceptable to the Prepetition Term
Loan Lenders by January 8, 2018, provided that a DIP Financing term
sheet is provided to the Debtors no later than December 28, 2017;

     (c) Failure to obtain entry of an order, acceptable to the
Prepetition Term Loan Lenders, approving the DIP Financing by the
date that is 35 days after the DIP Financing Motion is filed with
the Court;

     (d) Failure to (i) consummate the sale of substantially all of
the assets of Fulghum by March 15, 2018 or (ii) obtain the consent
of the Prepetition Term Loan Lenders to any amendments to or
waivers of the definitive documentation for such sale;

     (e) Failure to (i) consummate the sale of substantially all of
the assets of RTK WP2 Canada ULC ("Atikokan") by February 1, 2018
or (ii) obtain the consent of the Prepetition Term Loan Lenders to
any amendments to or waivers of the definitive documentation for
such sale;

     (f) Failure to (i) execute definitive documentation,
acceptable to the Prepetition Term Loan Lenders, for the sale of
substantially all of the assets of NEWP by January 15, 2018, (ii)
obtain the consent of the Prepetition Term Loan Lenders to any
amendments to or waivers of such definitive documentation following
execution, and (iii) consummate such sale by March 15, 2018;

     (g) Failure of the Debtors to cause: (i) NEWP and any other
applicable Non-Debtor Subsidiaries to declare dividends resulting
in the distribution of all of the proceeds of the sale of
substantially all of the assets of NEWP, less $2 million, to the
Prepetition Term Loan Agent as and when the proceeds of such sale
are received; (ii) the distribution of all of the proceeds of the
sale of substantially all of the assets of Fulghum, less $500,000,
to the Prepetition Term Loan Agent as and when such proceeds are
received; and (iii) the distribution of all of the proceeds of the
sale of substantially all of the assets of Atikokan, less $250,000,
to the Prepetition Term Loan Agent as and when such proceeds are
received;

     (h) Failure to obtain confirmation of a plan of
reorganization, acceptable to the Prepetition Term Loan Lenders, to
the extent such plan does not contemplate payment in full in cash
of the Prepetition Term Loan Obligations and the Prepetition Term
Loan Obligations have not already been paid in full in cash, within
90 days after the Petition Date;

     (i) Incurrence or payment by the Debtors of expenses other
than as enumerated in the Budget;

     (j) Reversal, vacatur, or modification (without consent of the
Prepetition Term Loan Agent and the Prepetition Term Loan Lenders)
of the Interim Order;

     (k) Entry by the Court of an order, or the filing by the
Debtors of a motion which seeks entry of an order: (i) dismissing
either of the Chapter 11 Cases, (ii) converting any of the Chapter
11 Cases to cases under chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code, (iii)
appointing a trustee or examiner with the expanded powers to
operate the Debtors' businesses or (iv) terminating or reducing the
period during which the Debtors have the exclusive right to file a
plan of reorganization and solicit acceptances thereof;

     (l) The Debtors file or support a motion challenging the
validity, extent or priority of any of the Prepetition Term Loan
Obligations or the Prepetition Term Loan Liens;

     (m) Entry by the Court of an order granting any lien on, or
security interest in, any Prepetition Collateral in favor of any
party other than the Prepetition Term Loan Agent or the Prepetition
Lenders, or granting an administrative claim payable by a Debtor to
any party other than the Prepetition Term Loan Agent or the
Prepetition Lenders that is senior to, or pari passu with, the
Superpriority Claim or the Prepetition Term Loan Obligations,
without the express written consent of the Prepetition Term Loan
Lenders, except as expressly allowed in the Interim Order; and

     (n) Any material breach by the Debtors of any obligations,
representations, warranties or covenants in the Interim Order,
which material breach is not cured after written notice of such
breach is given to the Debtors.

ROBERT FONDA: Andersons Buying Newport Coast Property for $2.6M
---------------------------------------------------------------
Robert Clark Fonda and Emily Regina Fonda ask the U.S. Bankruptcy
Court for the Central District of California to authorize the
bidding procedures in connection with the sale of their unoccupied
residence located at 222 Via Koron, Newport Coast, California to
Paul Richard Anderson and Jennifer Lynn Anderson for $2,625,000.

A hearing on the Motion is set for Jan. 10, 2018 at 10:00 a.m.

As reflected in the Debtors' Schedules, the Property is subject to
a first deed of trust in favor of U.S. Bank Trust, N.A. (Caliber
Home Loans, Inc.) in the approximate amount of $2.3 million.  The
Debtors needed to seek the protection of the Bankruptcy Code to
avoid a foreclosure of the Property set for Dec. 9, 2016 and to
maximize the value of the Property for all creditors.

The Property had been listed by the Coldwell Banker Residential
Mortgage ("CBRM Firm") for a total of 167 days.  Between the CBRM
Firm and Villa Real Estate ("Broker"), the Property has been held
as an open house on an almost weekly basis, has been advertised on
all major national and international websites during the duration
of the listing, has been professionally staged so that it appears
in the most positive light and access to the home for prospective
buyers has been unimpeded .  

Following the relisting of the Property through the Broker,
realtors and potential buyers were encouraged to present all
offers.  There have been over 15 inquiries within the current
period with existing broker and two offers have been presented with
the current listing agent.  These most recent offers have been the
highest and best offers to date.  At the transition from the CBRM
Firm and the Broker, there was an offer on the table of $2,375,000
and the agent for that buyer indicated that was his best and final
offer.  

On Oct. 10, 2017, the Broker received a cash offer of $2,510,000
(verified through financial statements) and the Broker was able to
shop that offer for approximately 35 days, when an offer was
received from the Buyers of $2,625,000.  The Broker then sent out
multiple counter-offers to the two parties requesting highest and
best with the Buyer increasing their offer to $2,625,000 and the
other party responding that he would remain at his initial price of
$2,625,000 due to the amount of work that needed to be done to the
Property.  At this moment, the offer of $2,625,000 by the Buyers is
the highest and best and may not be easy to duplicate considering
the amount of time that the Property has been on the market.

These are the recorded liens and encumbrances against the Property
and their proposed treatment through the sale:

     a. Orange County Treasurer and Tax Collector: Real property
taxes in the estimated amount of $6,771.  All outstanding real
property taxes will be paid in full through escrow on the sale
transaction.

     b. Caliber: The current beneficiary of a first priority deed
of trust recorded Nov. 15, 2007; recording number 2007-000693630, i
the amount of $2,510,023 (per Proof of Claim No. 6 filed May 26,
2017).  This lien will be paid through escrow on the sale of the
Property in the amount approved by Caliber.  Thus, this lien will
be released, discharged and terminated at the close of escrow.

The Buyers and the Debtor have entered into the Residential
Purchase Agreement and Joint Escrow Instructions for the sale and
purchase of the Property.  The Buyers has offered to purchase the
Property through a short sale for a purchase price of $2,625,000,
with $26,00 earnest money deposit, subject to the Bidding
Procedures, which includes (i) a proposed discounted payoff to the
Secured Lender; (ii) payment of Chapter 11 administrative expenses
of approximately $75,000; (iii) payment of tax claims asserted by
the Internal Revenue Service in the approximate amount of $75,000;
(iv) payment of the expenses incurred by the Debtors of
approximately $17,500 in the maintenance and upkeep of the Property
during the period of time that the Property has been marketed for
sale; and (v) other costs, including but not limited to brokers'
commissions, escrow charges, title charges and documentary transfer
taxes.

The sale of the Property will be subject to approval by the Secured
Lender and will be on an "as-is" condition, with no expressed or
implied warranties, pursuant to the terms and conditions set forth
in the Agreement, and subject to the Bidding Procedures.  Through
the sale, a real estate commission in the total amount not to
exceed 5% will be paid which will be split between the Debtors’
Broker and the Buyer’s real estate broker, Coldwell Banker
Millenium, through its agent Kimberly Bowen, in such amounts as
agreed to by the brokers.

The Debtors understand that the total amounts to be paid may exceed
the purchase price, in which case the Debtors intend to negotiate
with the Secured Lender, administrative creditors and brokers to
make up any shortfall.  In addition, they believe that it is
possible that through the Bidding Procedures, the ultimate sale
price may be sufficient to pay the items and claims in full.
Finally, to the extent necessary, the Debtors will ask authority to
surcharge the Secured Lender's collateral.

The salient terms of the Bidding Procedures are:

     a. Potential bidders must bid an initial amount of at least
$10,000 over the purchase price.  Minimum bid increments thereafter
will be $10,000.  Subject to approval of the Court, the Seller will
have sole discretion in determining (i) the other procedures to be
utilized for bidding, (ii) which overbid is the best for the
Estate.

     b. Bid Deadline: Jan. 5, 2018 at 5:00 p.m. (California time)

     c. Deposit: 3% of the initial overbid purchase price

     d. All competing bids must acknowledge that the Property is
being sold on an "as is" basis without warranties of any kind,
expressed or implied, being given by the Seller, concerning the
condition of the Property or the quality of the title thereto, or
any other matters relating to the Property.

to the Second Back-Up Bidder approved by the Court at the hearing
on the approval of the sale.

The Debtors have been advised by their tax advisors that based on
the purchase price contemplated, and the Debtors' tax basis in the
Property, after applying available capital gains tax exemptions
that there will be no tax liability generated from the sale.

The Debtors propose to sell the Property free and clear of all
liens, claims, interests, and encumbrances.  They are currently
negotiating the approval of the sale with the Secured Lender, and
the proposed short sale is ultimately subject to the consent and
approval of the Secured Lender.  The Debtors anticipate that the
Secured Lender will consent to the sale.  Alternatively, through
overbidding, there may be sufficient proceeds to pay the final
allowed amount of the Secured Lender's claim in full.

Pursuant to Bankruptcy Code Section 506(c), the Debtors ask
authorization to surcharge the collateral of the Secured Lender for
the costs the Debtors have incurred in the maintenance of the
Property as well as with the preservation and disposition of such
collateral.  The services performed by their general counsel,
Shulman Hodges & Bastian LLP and the Brokers, combined with the
expenses incurred by the Debtors of approximately $17,500 in the
maintenance and upkeep of the Property during the period of time
that the Property has been marketed for sale, has preserved the
value of the Property for the benefit of the Secured Lender.

From the sale proceeds, the Debtors propose to pay (i) the Chapter
11 administrative expenses, expenses incurred by the Debtors in the
maintenance of the Property and tax claims asserted by the Internal
Revenue Service in an amount to be determined by the Court; and
(ii) the liens, costs of sale and other expenses directly from the
sale proceeds at the close of escrow, including but not limited to:
(a) payment of outstanding real property taxes, if any; (b) payment
of such amount approved by the Secured Lender in full satisfaction
of its senior priority lien against the Property and directing that
this lien will be released, discharged and terminated at the close
of escrow; and (c) payment of closing costs and other monetary
obligations the Agreement requires the Debtors, as the seller of
the Property, to pay at the close of escrow (including but not
limited to escrow charges, title charges, documentary transfer
taxes) without requiring the Debtors to place any funds into escrow
or have any continuing obligation to the senior lienholder; (iii)
the real estate commission in the total amount not to exceed five
percent of the final purchase price, to be split between the
Debtors' Broker and the Buyers' broker, in such amounts as agreed
to by the brokers; and (iv) all other reasonable and customary
escrow fees, recording fees, title insurance premiums and closing
costs necessary and proper to close escrow.

The Debtors further ask authorization to resolve any disputes over
the allowance and disallowance of costs and/or payoff amounts
subject only to agreement between the Secured Lender and the
Debtors as part of the escrow closing without the need for further
notice, hearing or Court order.

The Debtors desire to close the sale of the Property as soon as
practicable after entry of an order approving the sale.
Accordingly, they ask that the Court, in the discretion provided it
under Federal Rule of Bankruptcy Procedure 6004(h), waives the
14-day stay requirement.

ROSETTA GENOMICS: Granted Extension to Comply with NASDAQ Rule
--------------------------------------------------------------
Rosetta Genomics Ltd. received a notification letter from the
NASDAQ Stock Market on Dec. 19, 2017, informing the Company that
Nasdaq has determined to grant the Company an extension to regain
compliance with Listing Rule 5550(b).  The terms of the extension
are as follows: on or before April 23, 2018, the Company must have
closed on the previously announced transaction with Genoptix, Inc.,
which will effectively result in the delisting of the Company from
the Nasdaq Capital Market.  If the transaction with Genoptix, Inc.,
fails to close on or before April 23, 2018, the Company must raise
sufficient equity to comply with the Rule.  If the Company fails to
evidence compliance upon filing its periodic report for the June
30, 2018, with the SEC and Nasdaq, the Company may be subject to
delisting.  In the event the Company does not satisfy the terms,
Nasdaq will provide written notification that its securities will
be delisted.  At that time, the Company may appeal Nasdaq's
determination to a Listing Qualifications Panel.

RPM HARBOR: Committee Wants Plan Exclusivity Terminated
-------------------------------------------------------
The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors of RPM Harbor
Services, Inc., asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Central
District of California to terminate the Debtor's exclusivity period
to file a plan of reorganization and solicit acceptances for that
Plan.

A hearing to consider the Committee's request is set for Jan. 18,
2018, at 10:00 a.m.

The Committee complains that:

     a. the Debtor has filed three motions to extend its plan
        exclusivity;

     b. although the Debtor has not yet filed its own plan,
        commentators have noted that the likely consequence of
        the denial of an extension of exclusivity is "not that
        creditor plans will be proposed and approved, but that
        the threat of such plans will cause the debtor to come
        forward more quickly than he might otherwise";

     c. there are no complex business issues to resolve before a
        confirmable plan can be proposed by another party;

     d. the Debtor has not negotiated the terms of the Plan with
        any creditors of which the Committee is aware.  The
        Debtor appears to be basing its delay in proposing a plan
        on the highly speculative premise that it will obtain the
        favorable rulings in its objection to approximately 20
        creditor claims and has not engaged in settlement
        discussions with the creditors;

     e. there has been no progress towards a reorganization in
        this case.  The Debtor has merely been operating without
        taking steps to move it closer to exiting this case by
        way of a plan;

     f. no plan at all has been filed by the Debtor in this case,
        despite the Debtor's three requested extensions of
        exclusivity;

     g. sufficient time has elapsed in this case to propose a
        confirmable plan.  By the time this motion will be heard,
        this case will have been pending nearly nine months.
        This is an uncomplicated case; the Debtor is an operating
        drayage company with a number of litigation claimants.
        There is nothing unique about this case nor the issues
        presented;

     h. the Debtor is threatening to shut its company down if it
        doesn't obtain the legal victories it is seeking against
        approximately twenty former truck drivers.  Under this
        threat, the Debtor has sought to retain exclusive control
        over the reorganization process without any attempt to
        maximize the value of the estate for the benefit of
        creditors.  In doing so, creditors are hostage to a
        process that could be to their severe detriment, while,
        on the other hand, the case is being conducted solely for
        the benefit of insiders.  In the meantime, there is no
        indication that these insiders are adequately fulfilling
        their fiduciary duties to this estate.

The Committee reminds the Court that the Debtor has repeatedly
stated in pleadings filed in this bankruptcy case and in oral
presentations that it intends to close down the Debtor's business
unless it obtains certain litigation victories -- which the
Committee believes are highly speculative.  The Committee recently
succeeded in achieving a $1.15 million recovery for the Debtor's
estate through a settlement with the Debtor's owner -- RPM
Transportation, Inc.  Therefore, the value of the estate may be
currently at its highest point.  As of Dec. 14, 2017, the Debtor's
general bank account had a balance of $2,013,016.

The Committee says that rather than allow the Debtor to diminish
the value of the estate by incurring the high cost of litigation
with questionable motives and merits, it appears to be in in the
best interests of creditors to pursue a plan of liquidation so that
the Debtor's cash assets can be distributed to its creditors.  The
Committee expects that a liquidating plan would also preserve other
value that may be available through post-bankruptcy investigation
and litigation to be conducted by an independent fiduciary and
liquidating trust with oversight by a post-confirmation committee.
Notably, through its continuing investigations, the Committee has
determined that the Debtor has understated the transfers during the
90-day period prior to the Petition Date by over $1.5 million.

Due to statements by the Debtor, the Committee is concerned that
the Debtor will consume substantial estate assets through
litigating objections to the claims of approximately twenty
judgment creditors and similarly situated creditors who have filed
proofs of claim.

The Committee takes seriously Debtor's statement of intention to
close its business unless it has the specified litigation victory
against all of its pre-petition drivers.  In light of the fact that
the Debtor has already admittedly lost in all 11 prepetition
proceedings before the California Labor Commission (thus, the
ODAs), the Committee does not believe that the Debtor will succeed
in disallowing the drivers' claims nor getting the legal victory
upon which it bases its ability to continue as a going concern.
Rather than expend the finite resources of this estate on the
litigation tactics which are of dubious merit, the Committee seeks
to have the Debtor's assets distributed to creditors as soon as
possible.

In addition, the Committee does not believe that there is a need to
launch twenty claim objections in an effort that would likely only
benefit the Debtor's insiders and drain cash assets of this
bankruptcy estate.  Consequently, the Committee believes that a
liquidation of the Debtor's assets at this time will result in the
most certain -- and likely highest -- return to all creditors.
However, the Committee is unable to propose a plan of liquidation
while the Debtor enjoys plan exclusivity under Section 1121.

A copy of the Committee's request is available at:

          http://bankrupt.com/misc/cacb17-14484-141.pdf

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on Nov. 14, 2017, the
Debtor asked the Court to further extend the exclusivity period for
the Debtor to file a plan of reorganization to Jan. 8, 2018, saying
that the Debtor needs sufficient time to resolve the claims filed
against it, make any necessary changes to its business model, and
assess its profitability and provide projections supporting
feasibility of any proposed plan.

Based in Long Beach, California, RPM Harbor Services Inc. provides

The Debtor sought protection under Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy
Code (Bankr. C.D. Calif. Case No. 17-14484) on April 12, 2017.  The
petition was signed by Shawn Duke, its president.

At the time of the filing, the Debtor estimated its assets and
debts at $1 million to $10 million.

The case is assigned to Judge Julia W. Brand.

Vanessa M. Haberbush, Esq., at Haberbush & Associates LLP, serves
as the Debtor's counsel.

The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors of RPM Harbor
Services, Inc., retained Levene, Neale, Bender, Yoo & Brill, LLP,
as counsel; and CohnReznick LLP, as financial advisor.

2017 through January 27, 2018 as set forth in the Budget.

Bank First National is granted the following adequate protection

     (b) The Debtor will maintain and pay premiums for insurance to
cover all of its assets from fire, theft and water damage;

     (c) The Debtor will make available to Bank First National
evidence of that which constitutes as its collateral or proceeds;

     (d) The Debtor will properly maintain its assets in good
repair and properly manage its business;

     (e) Bank First National will be granted valid, perfected,
enforceable security interests in and to the Debtor's postpetition
assets, including all proceeds and products which become property
of the estate, to the extent and priority of their alleged
prepetition liens, but only to the extent of any diminution in the
value of such assets during the period from the Petition Date
through January 27, 2018; and

     (f) On or before January 15, 2018, and each month thereafter,
the Debtor will provide Bank First National with a budget-to-actual
report comparing actual income and expenses against those set forth
on the cash collateral budget approved for the preceding calendar
month.

A final hearing on the Debtor's Motion to use cash collateral is
scheduled to take place on January 23, 2018 at 10:00 a.m.

SEVEN STARS CLOUD: Recurring Losses Raise Going Concern Doubt
-------------------------------------------------------------
Seven Stars Cloud Group, Inc., filed its quarterly report on Form
10-Q, disclosing a net loss of $3.02 million on $30.22 million of
revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2017, compared
with a net loss of $2.15 million on $1.63 million of revenue for
the same period in 2016.

At September 30, 2017, the Company had total assets of $71.56
million, total liabilities of $47.76 million, convertible series A
redeemable preferred stock of $1.26 million, and a $22.53 million

million and $115.7 million as of September 30, 2017 and December
31, 2016, respectively, due to recurring losses since its

SKYPATROL LLC: Seeks Authority on Cash Collateral Use
-----------------------------------------------------
Skypatrol, LLC, seeks authority from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the Southern District of Florida for the continued use of its cash
collateral during the pendency of this chapter 11 case.

The proposed Budget provides total projected expenses of
approximately $463,773 for the month ending December 31, 2017
through April 30, 2018.

The Debtor believes that (i) the Trust for Trebuchet Corp., Isabel
Catherine Leeds Trust, and Oliver Williams Leeds Trust, claiming
approximately $192,000; (ii) Platinum Financial Trust, LLC,
claiming approximately $140,000; and (iii) the Debtor's CEO, Robert
Rubin, claiming approximately $50,000, have security interest in
substantially all assets of the Debtor.

The Debtor proposes to grant Trust, Platinum and Rubin replacement
liens on all property that is of the same nature and type as their
prepetition collateral, in the same priority as the liens existed
as of the Petition Date. However, said replacement liens will not
attach to Avoidance Actions or their proceeds.

The Debtor believes that the equity cushion coupled with the
replacement liens is reasonable, in the best interest of its estate
and sufficient to adequately protect the Lenders. As such, the
Debtor requests the Court to grant the adequate protection to the
Lenders on an interim basis.

STEVE'S FROZEN: Shareholders to Infuse Funds to Finance Latest Plan
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Steve's Frozen Chillers, Inc., filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
for the Southern District of Florida a second amended disclosure
statement describing its first amended chapter 11 plan of
reorganization dated Dec. 18, 2017.

Class 4 under the latest plan is the general unsecured claims.  The
members of this class will share pro-rata from the amount of $300
per month paid on a quarterly basis.  They will be paid less than
1% of their allowed claim, over a 60 month period.

The Plan Proponent believes that the Debtor will have enough cash
on hand on the effective date of the Plan to pay all the claims and
expenses that are entitled to be paid on that date. Additionally,
Debtor's Officers and Shareholders Stephen Schoenberg, David
Schoenberg, Susan Schoenberg, and Brian Schoenberg, may infuse
personal funds as necessary to fund the plan. Additionally,
Officers and Shareholders Stephen Schoenberg, David Schoenberg,
Susan Schoenberg, and Brian Schoenberg are pledging two parcels of
real property with estimated equity totaling $300,000 in an effort
to stabilize and maintain operations and plan payments.

The Troubled Company Reporter reported on July 26, 2017 that
creditors holding Class 9 general unsecured claims will share
pro-rata from the amount of $206 per month paid on a quarterly
basis. They will be paid less than 1% of their allowed claims over
60 months.

TERRAFORM GLOBAL: S&P Raises CCR to 'B+', Outlook Positive
----------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said it raised its corporate credit rating on
TerraForm Global Inc. to 'B+' from 'B-' and removed the rating from
CreditWatch, where it was placed with positive implications on
March 15, 2017. The outlook is positive.

S&P said, "In addition, we raised the rating on TerraForm Global
Operating LLC's debt to 'BB-' from 'B-' and removed the rating from
CreditWatch, where we had placed it with positive implications on
March 15, 2017. We also revised the recovery rating on the debt to
'2' from '3', reflecting our expectation of substantial (70%-90%;
rounded estimate: 80%) recovery in the event of default.

"In addition, we withdrew the 'B-' rating on TerraForm Global
Operating LLC's secured debt."

The upgrade is the immediate result of the recently closed
Brookfield Asset Management acquisition of 100% of TerraForm
Global. S&P said, "Under SunEdison's control, Global had vastly
underperformed our expectations, which resulted in numerous
downgrades after its initial rating in 2015. The portfolio's
struggles were largely related to an aggressive growth strategy,
which we expect to be discontinued. Operations have been strong
across the portfolio, and resource performance has been in line
with our expectations; due to a relatively low level of cash flows
being encumbered (about 10%), strong availability and resource
performance generally lead to improved cash flows at the parent
level."

S&P said, "The positive outlook reflects our expectation that the
issuer could lower debt during the next 12 months because new
management seeks to refine the capital structure and use balance
sheet cash to stabilize financial metrics.

"We would likely raise the rating if the combination of operational
performance and capital structure adjustment led to deconsolidated
debt to EBITDA beneath 5x on a consistent basis.

"We would likely revise the outlook to stable if Global were unable
to improve its financial metrics under new ownership, such that
deconsolidated debt to EBITDA remained above 5x persistently;
acquisitions funded at the holdco level could lead to this
occurring."

TROVERCO INC: New Plan Discloses Supply Agreement with TSF
----------------------------------------------------------
Troverco, Inc., filed with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Eastern District of Missouri a disclosure statement with respect to
its first amended chapter 11 plan of reorganization dated Dec. 19,
2017.

The latest filing provides that the Debtor's business model has
shifted from a system more heavily weighted with fixed costs to a
regime more heavily defined by variable costs. The Debtor has
reduced its number of routes from 115 to 48, shedding costly routes
that offered relatively low sales volume and has thus increased the
density of its sales per route. The Debtor has also reduced from
230 to 92 its number of employees and has reduced its fleet of
delivery trucks from 115 to 58. The Debtor formerly maintained five
offices and distribution centers, and now maintains only two, while
also reducing its depots to 20 from 50. Such changes have enabled
the Debtor to reduce its redistribution teams from seven to two,
and the Debtor has shed all 36 of its leased automobiles. Such
changes enable the Debtor to operate with significantly lower fixed
expenses in gross and as a proportionate share of revenues.
Consequently, cost increases to be experienced by the Debtor will
be driven primarily by sales increases and corresponding profit
realizations.

Additionally, the Triple Sticks Foods, LLC, an entity owned and
operated directly or indirectly by the Trover family, has agreed to
enter into the Supply Agreement which provides the Debtor with
increased margins on substantially all of its sandwich sales. As a
result, increased sales will likely also result in increased
overall profit margins.

was signed by Joseph E. Trover, Jr., the CEO.

TWO RIVERS WATER: Technical Default Raises Going Concern Doubt
--------------------------------------------------------------
Two Rivers Water & Farming Company filed its quarterly report on
Form 10-Q, disclosing a net loss of $671,000 on $1,022,000 of total
revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2017, compared
with a net loss of $1,035,000 on $7,000 of total revenue for the
same period in 2016.

At September 30, 2017, the Company had total assets of $47.48
million, total liabilities of $26.25 million, and $21.23 million in
total stockholders' equity.

At September 30, 2017, the Company has a working capital deficit
and a stockholders' deficit of approximately $19,370,000 and
$87,393,000, respectively.  The HCIC seller carry back debt is in
technical default.

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

The $4M GrowCo Note is classified as current due to the holders'
right to call the note upon 60-days notice.  The HCIC debt of $6.4
million is secured by water and land assets that are valued at
approximately $26 million.  Should the holders of the HCIC debt
demand payment, management believes the value of these assets makes
the debt re-financeable.

VARINDER SINGH: Proposes a $701K Short Sale of Bethlehem Property
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Varinder Jeet Singh asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern
District of Pennsylvania to authorize the short sale of residential
real estate at 256 Cobblestone Lane, City of Bethlehem, County of
Northampton and Commonwealth, Pennsylvania to Manju Mary Thomas and
Mahesh Krishnamaury for $701,000.

The Property is valued according to the highest and best offer
obtained in a commercially reasonable manner at $701,000.  It is
encumbered by a mortgage(s) held by US Bank N.A in the amount of
$798,574.  It is further encumbered by real estate taxes and/or
utility liens owed to various local taxing entities including: (i)
a. Bethlehem Area School District (in amount to be proven); (ii)
Northampton County TCB (in amount to be proven); (iii) Commonwealth
of PA (Revenue) (in amount to be proven); and (iv) Internal Revenue

agreement of sale.  The Debtor proposes to sell the Property to the
Buyer for $720,000, with $20,000 earnest money, free and clear of
liens, encumbrances and other interests.  It is believed and
therefore averred the contract is subject to a fee due to a Broker
of 6% of the gross sale price and that broker is Keller Williams
Real Estate, 2901 Emrick Blvd. Unit 100, Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.

The Debtor is asking the authority to the extent of available funds
realized from the sale proceeds in following priority:

     a. The reasonable costs of sale including realtor's
commissions, if any, the costs of one half of the applicable
transfer taxes, notary fees, recording fees, the reasonable and
customary adjustments and pro-rated items such as real estate taxes
and municipal and utility charges if any;

     b. The Mortgage of US Bank N.A. in its respective priorities
(until it is paid in accord with a determination by this court as
to the amount it is owed).

     c. The remaining funds, if any, will be paid into the Escrow
Account of the Debtor's Attorney pending further order of the
Court.

VERNON PARK CHURCH: Wants to Access HSB Cash Collateral
-------------------------------------------------------
Vernon Park Church of God requests the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the Northern District of Illinois to authorize its use of the cash
collateral of Happy State Bank d/b/a Gold Star Company.

The Court will hold a hearing on Jan. 9, 2018 at 9:30 a.m. to
consider the Debtor's request for use of cash collateral.

The proposed monthly budget provides total expenses in the
aggregate amount of $69,893.

To finance the construction of its new facility, the Debtor granted
a mortgage in the principal amount of $3,000,000 to Happy State
Bank, as Trustee of the Bondholders of Vernon Park Church of God.
The mortgage was secured by the Debtor's facility at 9011 South
Stony Island and the land for its new facility in Lynwood,
Illinois.

The Debtor is generating and collecting revenue from the operation
of the Church. The Debtor believes that the revenue generated by
the Lynwood Property is cash collateral in which Happy State Bank
has an interest.

The Debtor claims that it does not have funds on hand sufficient to
pay the monthly operating expenses of the Church. The Debtor is
also unable to incur debt or obtain credit to operate the Church.

As such, the Debtor has an immediate need to use the cash
collateral of Happy State Bank to operate the Church. The Debtor
also needs to use the cash collateral to finance its chapter 11
reorganization.

In order to provide Happy State Bank adequate protection, the
Debtor has agreed to:

     (a) Grant Happy State Bank replacement liens on the Lynwood
property and the proceeds of the Property to the same extent and
with the same priority as its prepetition liens on the Property;

     (b) Make periodic interest payments in the amount of $15,000;

VOYA FINANCIAL: Moody's Affirms (P)Ba2 Preferred Shelf Rating
-------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's has affirmed with a stable outlook the Baa2 senior
unsecured guaranteed debt rating of Voya Financial, Inc. (Voya) and
the A2 insurance financial strength (IFS) ratings of four of its
five wholly owned life insurance subsidiaries, as well as other
Voya affiliated ratings. The A2 IFS rating of the Voya Insurance
and Annuity Company (VIAC), a fifth life insurance subsidiary, was
placed on review for possible downgrade. The rating actions follow
Voya's announcement of its plans to sell substantially all of its
closed block variable annuity (CBVA) segment together with VIAC,
which was the primary issuer of the business, as well as its fixed
and fixed indexed annuity businesses, to a consortium of investors
led by affiliates of Apollo Global Management LLC (not rated).

RATINGS RATIONALE

Moody's said the rating affirmations of Voya and its affiliates
(excluding VIAC) are based on the group's established position in
the retirement savings market, with leading positions in the
specialized 403(b) and 457 retirement plan sectors. Moody's expects
Voya's earnings to become markedly more stable without the
volatility and hedging complexity of the CBVA, a credit positive,
and for the profitability of Voya's remaining core retirement,
employee benefits, and investment management businesses, which,
while gaining momentum, are weak for the company's ratings, to
continue to improve.

These strengths are mitigated by Voya's much narrower business
profile and footprint after the transaction, as well as its greater
reliance on narrow-margined, highly competitive fee-based
businesses, given the company's additional plan to seek strategic
alternatives for its existing life insurance business. In addition,
Voya remains subject to shareholder pressures for higher share
repurchases and increased quarterly shareholder dividends, which
could increase leverage and pressure somewhat weak (although
improving ) earnings and cash coverage metrics. Moody's expects
these metrics to be within its expectations for its rating (i.e.,
total leverage no higher than 30%; earnings and cash coverage no
lower than 5x and 3x, respectively), and for regulatory capital at
the life companies, as measured by its NAIC Risk-Based Capital
ratio, to be maintained at not lower than the company's target of
425%.

Moody's added that the VIAC review for downgrade will focus on,
among other things, the capital structure of the new entity, its
business and investment strategy, regulatory capital levels, and
any capital and/or planned financial support from the new owners.
The CBVA is a sizable block of legacy variable annuities with rich
guarantees and significant associated earnings, reserve, and
capital volatility, as well as interest rate, equity market, and
hedging risks. On a stand-alone basis, VIAC's credit and financial
profile would be several notches lower.

The following factors could lead to an upgrade of Voya and its
insurance subsidiaries (excluding VIAC): consolidated adjusted
financial leverage no greater than 25% at the consolidated Voya
level, with earnings and cash coverage of at least 8x and 5x,
respectively, on a consistent basis; steady profitability, with
return-on-capital ratio (ROC) of at least 8% on a consistent basis,
excluding one-time items; RBC ratio consistently at or above 425%
(company action level), while maintaining good capital adequacy at
onshore captives; greater business diversification, with less
dependence on fee-based products.

The following could lead to a review for downgrade of Voya and its
insurance subsidiaries: total leverage above 30%, with earnings and
cash coverage consistently less than 5x and 3x, respectively; ROC's
consistently below 5%; consolidated RBC ratio falling below 375%
(company action level, excluding the captive, which, separately,
must be adequately capitalized); share repurchase activity, and/or
common stock dividends consistently funded by debt (vs. retained
earnings).

The following ratings have been affirmed:

Voya Financial, Inc.: Backed senior unsecured at Baa2; backed
junior subordinated debt at Baa3 (hyb); backed Issuer Rating at
Baa2; senior unsecured shelf rating at (P) Baa3; subordinated shelf
rating at (P) Ba1; preferred shelf rating at (P) Ba2;

Voya Holdings Inc.: Issuer Rating at Baa2; backed senior unsecured
rating at Baa1(guaranteed by ING Groep, NV)

Equitable of Iowa Companies Capital Trust II: backed preferred
rating at Baa3(hyb);

Peachtree Corners Funding Trust: backed senior unsecured rating at
Baa2.

Voya Retirement Insurance and Annuity Company: insurance financial
strength rating at A2;

Reliastar Life Insurance Company: insurance financial strength
rating at A2;

Reliastar Life Insurance Company of New York: insurance financial

               About Westmoreland Coal Company

Based in Englewood, Colorado, Westmoreland Coal Company --
http://www.westmoreland.com/-- is an independent coal company in
the United States.  Westmoreland's coal operations include surface
coal mines in the United States and Canada, underground coal mines
in Ohio and New Mexico, a char production facility, and a 50%
interest in an activated carbon plant.  Westmoreland also owns the
general partner of and a majority interest in Westmoreland Resource
Partners, LP, a publicly-traded coal master limited partnership
(NYSE:WMLP).

Westmoreland Coal reported a net loss of $28.87 million on $1.47
billion of revenues for the year ended Dec. 31, 2016, compared to a
net loss of $219.09 million on $1.41 billion of revenues for the
year ended Dec. 31, 2015.  As of Sept. 30, 2017, Westmoreland Coal
had $1.43 billion in total assets, $2.20 billion in total
liabilities and a total deficit of $774.14 million.

                         *     *     *

As reported by the TCR on March 2, 2016, Moody's Investors Service
downgraded the ratings of Westmoreland, including its corporate
family rating to 'Caa1' from 'B3'.  The downgrade reflects Moody's
expectation that the company's leverage metrics and cash flow
generation will continue to be under stress due to the headwinds
facing the coal industry.

In November 2017, S&P Global Ratings lowered its corporate credit
rating on Westmoreland Coal Co. to 'CCC' from 'CCC+'.  The outlook
is negative.  S&P said, "The negative outlook on Westmoreland
reflects our expectation that the company could default or pursue a
distressed exchange or other restructuring in the next 12 months.
We believe that a default could be precipitated by any combination
of a covenant breach or difficulties in refinancing Oxford's term
loan due December 2018.  In our opinion, a restructuring associated
with the Oxford debt could adversely impact Westmoreland's credit
profile as a whole.


WESTMORELAND RESOURCE: Extends Term of GP Services Pact to June 1

                            *********

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

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

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

Each Friday's edition of the TCR includes a review about a book of
interest to troubled company professionals.  All titles are
available at your local bookstore or through Amazon.com.  Go to
