AMPLIFY SNACK: S&P Withdraws 'B' CCR on Acquisition by Hershey Co
-----------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings withdrew all ratings on Amplify Snack Brands
Inc., including the 'B' corporate credit rating, the 'B'
issue-level and '3' recovery ratings on the company's $50 million
revolver due 2021, and the 'B' issue-level and '3' recovery ratings
on the company's $600 million first lien term loan due 2023. This
follows Hershey's acquisition of the company and repayment of its
debt.


ANTERO RESOURCES: S&P Raises CCR to 'BB+', Outlook Stable
---------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings raised its corporate credit rating on
Denver-based exploration and production (E&P) company Antero
Resources Corp. to 'BB+' from 'BB'. The outlook is stable.

S&P said, "We also raised our issue-level rating on the company's
senior unsecured notes to 'BB+' from 'BB'. The recovery rating
remains '3', indicating our expectation of meaningful (50%-70%;
rounded estimate: 65%) recovery for creditors in the event of a
payment default.

The upgrade is supported by Antero's recently announced financial
policy: the company expects to fund its capital spending through
internally generated cash flow, rather than relying on debt and
equity issuance or asset sale proceeds, as it has done in the past.
S&P said, "However, we still expect subsidiary Antero Midstream
L.P. to continue to finance increasing dividends with debt over the
next few years. Antero Midstream is fully consolidated with Antero
Resources, which owns about 53% of the subsidiary. The upgrade also
reflects our revised production growth rate and realized natural
gas liquids price assumptions for the next two years. The company
plans to run five drilling rigs in Marcellus and one drilling rig
in Utica to complete approximately 140 to 150 wells in 2018. We
expect the company to continue to post solid drilling success in
the Marcellus and Utica shale and potentially increase daily
production by 20% to near 2.7 billion cubic feet equivalent (bcfe)
by the end of 2018. The company's natural gas liquids (NGLs) price
realizations for the heavier liquids improved to over 60% of the
West Texas Intermediate (WTI) oil price, from the mid-40% range in
2016. We expect NGL price realizations to continue to trend upwards
once the Marine East 2 (ME2) pipeline is in service."

The stable outlook on Antero Resources Corp. reflects S&P Global
Ratings' expectation that the company will continue to increase
production, while maintaining FFO to debt above 35% and keeping
capital spending in line with operating cash flows over the next
two years. Furthermore, the company has 100% of estimated gas
production hedged for 2018 and 2019.

S&P said, "We could lower the ratings if Antero's cash flow
expectation weakened below our current expectations, such that FFO
to debt fell below 30% with no near-term remedy. Given our current
forecast for Antero and its favorable hedge position, we consider
such a decline unlikely over the next 12 months. We could also
consider a lower rating if the company pursued a more aggressive
financial policy that resulted in a deterioration of credit
measures.

"We could consider a positive rating action if Antero's
consolidated leverage measures improve such that FFO to total debt
exceeded 45% and debt to EBITDA declined closer to 2x on a
sustained basis. This would most likely occur if the company began
generating positive discretionary cash flow by further improving
profitability or executing greater capital efficiency. Additionally
for an upgrade, we need to expect that Antero will be committed to
maintaining a financial policy appropriate for an investment-grade
profile."

ASCENT RESOURCES MARCELLUS: Prenegotiated Ch.11 Filed in Delaware
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Ascent Resources Marcellus Holdings, LLC and its wholly owned
subsidiaries, Ascent Resources - Marcellus, LLC ("ARM") and Ascent
Resources Marcellus Minerals, LLC commenced on February 6, 2018,
voluntary chapter 11 cases in the United States Bankruptcy Court
for the District of Delaware to implement a consensual financial
restructuring approved by certain holders of ARM's first and second
lien term loans.

The Debtors have requested that their cases be jointly administered
under Case No. 18-10265.

The ARM Restructuring is a negotiated balance sheet restructuring
being undertaken to reduce the long-term debt of, and improve the
liquidity of, the ARM Entities.  The ARM Restructuring is not an
operational restructuring and is not intended to restructure or
compromise any vendor, service provider, contractor, lessor,
working interest owner or royalty owner obligations.

The pre-negotiated plan with lenders aims to reduce about $1
billion of debt and boost liquidity, reports Tracy Rucinski at
Reuters.

The company owes $708 million on a first lien and $348 million on a
second lien loan, a company spokeswoman said, according to
Reuters.

Ascent Resources Marcellus was founded by the late U.S. fracking
pioneer Aubrey McClendon.  It is one of several energy companies
McClendon launched after he was ousted in 2013 during a corporate
governance crisis from Chesapeake Energy Corp, which he had founded
and built into one of the largest U.S. shale drillers.  McClendon
died in a single-vehicle collision on March 2, 2016, a day after he
was indicted along with other unnamed co-conspirators on federal
charges of bid-rigging.

The Company said in a press statement Tuesday that the ARM Entities
on February 2, 2018, began the solicitation of votes to accept the
negotiated chapter 11 plan of reorganization from ARM's secured
creditors.  Only holders of ARM's first and second lien term loans
are entitled to vote to accept or reject the Plan.  Vendors and
service providers will not be impaired by the Restructuring and
will be paid in the ordinary course of business.

As of the chapter 11 filing, the ARM Entities have the creditor
votes necessary for the Plan to receive approval from the
Bankruptcy Court, with holders of 78% of the first lien term loans
and 79% of the second lien term loans having voted to accept the
Plan.

The ARM Entities expect to stay in chapter 11 for approximately 45
to 60 days, and continue to operate in the ordinary course of
business during this period.

Upon emergence from bankruptcy, a new board of directors will be
appointed for the ARM Entities, including one director appointed by
the current equity owners, and the ARM Entities will enter into a
new management services agreement with Ascent Resources Management
Services, LLC, whereby the existing management team will continue
to manage the day-to-day operations of the ARM Entities.

Ascent Resources, LLC, Ascent Resources Utica Holdings, LLC, Ascent
Resources - Utica, LLC and Ascent Resources Management Services,
LLC -- Ascent Entities -- are not included in the ARM Restructuring
and their operations remain unaffected by the ARM Restructuring.
The Ascent Entities are separate and distinct entities that have
their own capital structures, financing and operations.  The Ascent
Entities do not guarantee any of the ARM Entities debt.

                 About Ascent Resources Marcellus

Oklahoma City-based Ascent Resources Marcellus Holdings, LLC and
its wholly owned subsidiaries, Ascent Resources - Marcellus, LLC
("ARM") and Ascent Resources Marcellus Minerals, LLC were formed to
acquire, explore for, develop, produce and operate natural gas and
oil properties in the Marcellus Shale. The ARM Entities currently
own or have the right to develop approximately 43,000 net acres in
northern West Virginia.


ASPIRA OF FLORIDA: S&P Puts 'BB' Bond Rating on Watch Negative
--------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings placed its 'BB' long-term rating on Miami-Dade
County Industrial Development Authority's series 2016A industrial
development revenue bonds and 2016B taxable bonds, issued for
ASPIRA of Florida Inc. (Aspira) on CreditWatch with negative
implications.

"The CreditWatch placement reflects our view that there is at least
a one-in-two chance that we could lower the rating or change the
outlook within the next 90 days," said S&P Global Ratings credit
analyst Shivani Singh.

S&P said, "The CreditWatch placement reflects our view that the
current rating on Aspira could be pressured given our view that
Aspira's financial performance could have significantly weakened
and the charter renewal risk has increased. There has been
significant management and board turnover at the organization since
our last review, which has caused delays in information and has
increased our concern over the sufficiency of the information
provided. Management provided unaudited fiscal 2017 financials that
indicate uncertainty regarding Aspira's ability to meet its debt
service coverage covenant for the rated bonds. Given the financials
are unaudited and current management's limited experience with
prior year operations, we don't feel that we have sufficient
information to assess the appropriate rating level. We need
additional information, particularly the release of Aspira's fiscal
2017 audited financials in February to assess the magnitude of any
credit deterioration."

The CreditWatch placement also reflects the potential increase in
charter renewal risk based on poor academic performance at one of
the three obligated group schools. S&P said, "We expect to have a
full discussion with its charter authorizer and await release of
Aspira's fiscal 2017 audit within the CreditWatch period. Should
charter renewal pose a risk following discussions with the charter
authorizer, or audited fiscal 2017 financials indicate a debt
service coverage covenant violation or deterioration of credit
quality, we could lower the rating by one or more notches.
Conversely, we could consider revising the outlook to stable, if
both charter renewal and covenant violation risks are managed, with
other financial metrics consistent with the current rating."

ASPIRA of Florida, Inc. started in 1982 as ASPIRA Youth Leadership
Program, as a part of the national APSIRA Association, with a
vision to empower the Puerto Rican and Latino community through
advocacy and the education and leadership development of its youth.
In 2000, ASPIRA opened its first charter school in Miami, ASPIRA
Raul Arnaldo Martinez (RAM) Charter School. It has since opened up
two other schools, ASPIRA Leadership and College Preparatory
Academy (LCPA) and ASPIRA Arts Design Communication (Arts DECO)
Charter School. ASPIRA RAM and ASPIRA Arts DECO currently serve
grades 6-8 and ASPIRA LCPA serves grades K-2 and 6-8.


AUTHENTIDATE HOLDING: Changes Name to 'AEON Global Health Corp'
---------------------------------------------------------------
Authentidate Holding Corp. has completed its previously announced
corporate name change to Aeon Global Health Corp.  The name change
is effective immediately.  In addition, effective as of the start
of trading on Feb. 1, 2018, the Company's common stock began being
quoted on the OTC Markets Group, Inc.'s OTCQB tier under the new
symbol "AGHC".  The name change is part of the company's broader
rebranding effort and directly reflects its growth initiatives to
enhance its suite of service offerings and to introduce its growing
array of services to customers in foreign markets, including Latin
America and the Middle East.  The change to the company's trading
symbol is also intended to increase its profile within the
investment community.

Aeon Global Health's primary business focus is offering a
"personalized medicine" approach to laboratory testing services to
provide customers with actionable medical information.  Aeon is an
innovator in the genomic testing area with a comprehensive menu of
genetic tests and a pipeline of additional molecular-based tests in
development.  The new corporate identity will quickly convey who we
are to our target markets.

"2018 marks a year of new opportunities for Aeon Global Health,"
said Sonny Roshan, Chairman and CEO.  "This year, we anticipate
advancing our growth trajectory as we expand both our portfolio of
services and solutions as well as our market presence and continue
to differentiate ourselves while creating a world class brand."

"Our new name, Aeon Global Health, conveys our commitment to our
customers as an innovator in the laboratory testing and healthcare
diagnostics space.  It also signals our plans to expand our
business into international markets.  At Aeon, we offer a broad
array of advanced solutions that are well-aligned with long-term
healthcare trends as we focus on delivering clinically actionable
healthcare data which can lead to improved outcomes for multiple
stakeholders.  Our new name expresses our core mission to
positively impact patients and physicians through innovation and
leadership in the field of healthcare diagnostics," Roshan added.

Beginning Feb. 1, 2018 all information, including stock trading and
market data will be reported under the new ticker symbol, "AGHC".
The CUSIP for the Company's common stock will change to 00774U 107.
The name change does not affect the rights of the Company's
stockholders.  Its current stockholders will not need to exchange
their current stock certificates, as the stock certificates
reflecting its prior corporate name will continue to be valid.

                  About Aeon Global Health Corp.

Corp, is a provider of clinically actionable medical informatics.

total net revenues for the year ended June 30, 2016.

The Company's independent accounting firm IsnerAmper LLP in Iselin,
New Jersey, issued a "going concern" opinion in its report on the
consolidated financial statements for the year ended June 30, 2017,
noting that the Company has a working capital deficit and its
capital requirements have been and will continue to be significant,
which raise substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a
going concern.


AUTO SUPPLY: Fisher $10M Bid to Open Feb. 23 Auction of All Assets
------------------------------------------------------------------
Judge Lena Mansori James of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Middle District of North Carolina authorized Auto Supply Co.,
Inc.'s bidding procedures and its Asset Purchase Agreement with
Fisher Auto Parts, Inc., in connection with the sale of
substantially all of its assets for $10 million subject to
adjustments, subject to overbid.

The provisions of the Asset Purchase Agreement and Auction Bidding
Procedures providing for the reduced Expense Reimbursement are
approved in all respects, and the Debtor will pay the reduced
Expense Reimbursement to Fisher if: (a) Fisher is not in breach of
or default under the Asset Purchase Agreement and (b) Fisher is not
the Successful Bidder.

If Fisher is the purchaser of the Assets at a price in excess of
the Stalking Horse Offer, then Fisher will receive a credit in the
amount of the Expense Reimbursement with regard to the price paid
by Fisher at the closing of the sale of the Assets.  By submitting
an Acceptable Upset Bid, all Qualified Bidders, except Fisher, will
be deemed to have waived any right to seek a claim for an expense
reimbursement, fees or other costs pursuant to Section 503 of the
Bankruptcy Code.

Wells Fargo may credit bid at the Auction pursuant to Section
363(k) of the Bankruptcy Code; provided however, the Committee
retains its right to examine the liens and claims of Wells Fargo
pursuant to the Investigation Period as defined in the Final DIP
Order, and challenge the allowed claim of Wells Fargo.

BIOSTAR PHARMACEUTICALS: Hires Centurion ZD CPA as New Accountants
------------------------------------------------------------------
Mazars CPA Limited has tendered its resignation as Biostar
Pharmaceuticals, Inc.'s independent registered public accounting
firm, effective as of Jan. 31, 2018.  Mazars' determination not to
seek re-appointment as the Company's independent auditors followed
its policy to withdraw from the market in auditing public companies
in the U.S.

Mazars reported on the Company's financial statements for the years
ended as of Dec. 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively.  Its reports on
the Company's financial statements for the fiscal periods as of
Dec. 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively, did not contain an adverse
opinion or a disclaimer of opinion, and were not qualified or
modified as to uncertainty, audit scope, or accounting principles
except that the Mazars report on the Company's financial statements
for the fiscal years ended Dec. 31, 2016 and 2015 draw attention to
(1) deposits paid for intended acquisitions, (2) uncertainty
whether the Company was able to continue as a going concern as the
Company had experienced a substantial decrease in sales volume
which resulting a net loss for the years ended Dec. 31, 2016 and
2015 and part of the Company's buildings and land use rights were
subject to litigation between an independent third party and the
Company's chief executive officer, and the title of these buildings
and land use rights had been seized by the PRC Courts so that the
Company could not be sold without the Court's permission, and that
the Company previously violated its financial covenants included in
certain short-term bank loans.

The Company said that during its two most recent fiscal years ended
Dec. 31, 2016 and the interim period through the effective date of
Mazars' resignation, (i) there were no disagreements with Mazars on
any matter of accounting principles or practices, financial
statement disclosure, or auditing scope or procedure, which
disagreements, if not resolved to Mazars' satisfaction, would have
caused it to make reference to the subject matter of such
disagreements in its reports on the Company's consolidated
financial statements for such year, and (ii) there were no
reportable events as defined in Item 304(a)(1)(v) of Regulation
S-K.

            Engagement of Centurion ZD CPA Limited

On Jan. 31, 2018, the Company engaged Centurion ZD CPA Limited,
located at Unit 1304, 13/F, Two Harbourfront, 22 Tak Fung Street,
Hunghom, Hong Kong, as its new independent registered public
accounting firm to audit the Company's financial statements for the
year ended Dec. 31, 2017 and the related consolidated statement of
operations and comprehensive income, consolidated statement of
equity and consolidated statement of cash flows for the year then
ended; Centurion will also review the quarterly and year-to-date
2018 consolidated financial statements of the Company to be
included in the Company's quarterly filings on Form 10-Q for 2018.
The engagement was reviewed, recommended and approved by the Audit
Committee, and will be effective as of Jan. 31, 2018.

During each of the Company's two most recent fiscal years and
through the date of this report, (a) the Company has not engaged
Centurion as either the principal accountant to audit the Company's
financial statements, or as an independent accountant to audit a
significant subsidiary of the Company and on whom the principal
accountant is expected to express reliance in its report; and (b)
the Company or someone on its behalf did not consult Centurion with
respect to (i) either: the application of accounting principles to
a specified transaction, either completed or proposed; or the type
of audit opinion that might be rendered on the Company's financial
statements, or (ii) any other matter that was either the subject of
a disagreement or a reportable event as set forth in Items
304(a)(1)(iv) and (v) of Regulation S-K.

BLACK PRESS: S&P Cuts CCR to CCC+ on Weaker Earnings, Outlook Neg.
------------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said it lowered its long-term corporate credit
rating on Black Press Ltd. to 'CCC+ from 'B-'. The outlook is
negative.

S&P Global Ratings also lowered its issue-level rating on the
company's senior secured notes to 'B' from 'B+'; the '1' recovery
rating on the debt is unchanged, representing very high (90%-100%;
rounded estimate 95%) recovery in default.

The downgrade and negative outlook reflects declining revenues and
EBITDA indicating the secular pressures print advertisers are
facing globally. Industry headwinds from increased digital
competition and higher fragmentation of advertising dollars will
continue to affect Black Press' print operations. Due to the high
fixed-cost nature of the business, declining revenues will continue
to pressure margins and translate into lower free cash flow
generation. For the 12 months ended Nov. 30, 2017, year-over-year
revenues have declined by about 9%. However in comparison, adjusted
EBITDA has declined by about 30% as lower revenues reduce the
company's fixed cost absorption. Adjusted EBITDA margins have
declined by about 400 basis points to the mid teen percentage
range. S&P believes if revenues and EBITDA continue to decline at
current rates without any concurrent reduction in fixed costs, the
company could be hard pressed to service its fixed charges, which
S&P calculates to be about C$40 million.

S&P said, "The negative outlook reflects our view that a further
weakening of revenue and EBITDA over the next 12-18 months could
affect the company's ability to service its fixed charges of C$40
million from available liquidity. Under this scenario, we believe
there will be an increased risk another covenant breach or a high
likelihood of another refinancing (or restructuring) if no
additional assets are sold.

"We could lower the rating by multiple notches if Black Press is
unable to refinance its looming maturities and secure an ABL to
fund short-term working capital needs. We could also lower the
rating if EBITDA continues to decline above 20% over the next 12
months, limiting the company's ability to cover fixed charges. In
addition, a higher earnings shortfall or unanticipated
restructuring costs could also lead to tighter fixed charge
coverage and increase the risks for a missed payment or possible
debt restructuring.

"We could revise the outlook to stable if the company shows
improved operations reflected through improved revenues and EBITDA
in the next 12 months. At the same time we assume that the company
has successfully refinanced its 2018 maturities, improved
liquidity, and is in compliance with its amended covenants with
adequate headroom."

Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware approved all of the

a Chapter 11 financial restructuring.  Collectively, the approvals
at a hearing on February 6 will support the Bon-Ton business and
enable the Company to meet its financial obligations throughout the

Bill Tracy, President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "The
Court's approvals of our First Day motions are an important step
forward in our financial restructuring process that will allow the
Company to continue operating in the normal course and executing on
our key initiatives to drive improved performance.  We intend to
use the additional time and financial flexibility of this

options for our business."

Mr. Tracy continued, "Across our seven well-loved brands, we
continue to deliver the exceptional shopping experience customers
expect in our stores and across e-commerce and mobile platforms.  I
want to thank our associates for their ongoing hard work and

CAMBER ENERGY: Sells $5 Million Worth of Preferred Shares
---------------------------------------------------------
As previously disclosed, on Oct. 5, 2017, Camber Energy, Inc. and
an institutional investor, entered into a stock purchase agreement,
pursuant to which the Company agreed to sell 1,684 shares of its
Series C Redeemable Convertible Preferred Stock for $16 million (a
5% original issue discount to the face value of such shares),
subject to certain conditions.

On Oct. 5, 2017, in connection with the entry into the October 2017
Purchase Agreement, the Investor purchased 212 shares of Series C
Preferred Stock for $2 million.

On Nov. 21, 2017, pursuant to the terms of the October 2017
Purchase Agreement, the Company sold the Investor an additional 106
shares of Series C Preferred Stock for $1 million.

On Dec. 27, 2017, pursuant to the terms of the October 2017
Purchase Agreement, the Company sold the Investor an additional 105
shares of Series C Preferred Stock for $1 million.

On Jan. 31, 2018, pursuant to the terms of the October 2017
Purchase Agreement, the Company sold the Investor an additional 105
shares of Series C Preferred Stock for $1 million.

The Company plans to use the proceeds from the sale of the Series C
Preferred Stock for working capital, workovers on existing wells,
drilling and completion of additional wells, acquisitions,
repayment of vendor balances and payments to International Bank of
Commerce, in anticipation of regaining compliance.

As of Feb. 1, 2018, the Series C Preferred Stock sold at the
Initial Closing, Second Closing, Third Closing and Fourth Closing
would convert into approximately 80,691,066 shares of the Company's
common stock if fully converted, which number includes 1,624,616
shares of common stock convertible upon conversion of each share of
outstanding Series C Preferred Stock at a conversion price of $3.25
per share (based on the $10,000 face amount of the Series C
Preferred Stock) and approximately 79,066,450 shares of common
stock for premium shares due thereunder (based on the current
dividend rate of 24.95% per annum), and a conversion price of
$0.1166 per share, which may be greater than the conversion price
that currently applies to the conversion of the Series C Preferred
Stock pursuant to the terms of the Designation, which number of
premium shares may increase from time to time as the trading price
of its common stock decreases, upon the occurrence of any trigger
event under the Designation of the Series C Preferred Stock and
upon the occurrence of certain other events, as described in
greater detail in the Designation of the Series C Preferred Stock.
  
The conversion of the Series C Preferred Stock into common stock of
the Company will create substantial dilution to existing
stockholders.

its affiliates to sell the following vessels: (i) JMC 154; (ii) JMC
3080; (iii) Ocean Raider; (iv) Reed Danos; ad (v) Todd Danos free
and clear of liens in the ordinary course of business, and its
proposed distribution of sale proceeds.

A hearing on the Motion is set for Jan. 10, 2018.

On Oct. 24, 2017, the Court entered the Sale Order, which, among
other things, authorizes the Debtors, subject to the conditions
specified, to (i) sell Mortgaged Vessels and/or Unencumbered
Vessels without further notice, free and clear of liens, claims and
interests, (ii) pay the Closing Costs associated with such sales,
and (iii) distribute the Net Proceeds of such sales in accordance
with the terms of the Sale Order.

On Jan. 17, 2018, the Court entered the Ninth Cash Collateral
Order.  Certain of the Lenders filed objections to the Sale Motion.
Based on, among other things, the entry of the Ninth Cash
Collateral Order, all objections to the Sale Motion were withdrawn
at or prior to the hearing on Jan. 10, 2018, and the entry of the
Order is not opposed.

The Sale Order, as modified, will remain in full force and effect.
It will be modified as follows:

     a. Paragraph 3(a) of the Sale Order will be modified to
replace "January 15, 2018" with "May 31, 2018."

     b. The following sentence will be added to the end of
paragraph 5 of the Sale Order: Notwithstanding that this order
lapsed on January 15, 2018 by reason of the occurrence of the
Termination Date as then defined, the  Debtors are authorized to
consummate, pursuant to and in accordance with the terms of this
order, sales of vessels that are the subject of agreements to sell
and/or Purchase Option Charters that were approved pursuant to the
terms of this order prior to such lapse, just as though such lapse
did not occur.

     c. Paragraph 7 of the Sale Order will be replaced in its
entirety with the following:

          Limitations on Sales.  The Debtors' authority to sell (a)
Mortgaged Vessels pursuant to this order (including any extension
of this order by changing the Termination Date) is limited to sales
of such vessels for, in the aggregate, gross purchase prices not
exceeding $25,000,000, unless, after such cap has been reached or
would otherwise be reached pursuant to sale of a particular
Mortgaged Vessel, such sale is agreed to between the Debtors and
the Lien Lender(s) asserting liens on such vessel upon three (3)
business days' notice to the Creditors' Committee, and (b)
Unencumbered Vessels pursuant to this order (including any
extension of this order by changing the Termination Date) is
limited to sales of such vessels for, in the aggregate, gross
purchase prices not exceeding $10,000,000.

          Notwithstanding anything to the contrary provided for in
this order, no sale of any Mortgaged Vessel or Unencumbered Vessel
may occur at any time if, after giving pro forma effect to such
sale and to the creation of any Retained Proceeds Claims in
connection with such sale, the ratio of the aggregate OLVs for all
Unencumbered Vessels still owned by the Debtors and that are
subject to the New Vessel Mortgages to the aggregate amount of all
Retained Proceeds Claims would be less than 2.00 to 1.00.  The
first sentence of the paragraph 7 will not apply to sales arising
from Purchase Option Charters that were authorized prior to Jan.
16, 2018, provided that the Debtors close not less than $8,700,000
of other vessel sales pursuant to this order during the period from
Jan. 16, 2018 through May 31, 2018.

CENVEO INC: S&P Lowers CCR to 'D' Amid Chapter 11 Filing
--------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings lowered its corporate credit rating on Cenveo
Inc. to 'D' from 'CCC+'. S&P said, "At the same time, we lowered
our issue-level rating on the company's 6% first-lien notes due in
2019 to 'D' from 'B-'. The recovery rating on the secured notes was
'2', indicating our expectation for substantial recovery (70%-90%;
rounded estimate: 70%) at default. We also lowered the issue-level
rating on the 8.5% second-lien notes due in 2022 and 6% senior
notes due in 2024 to 'D' from 'CCC-'. The recovery rating on the
notes was '6', indicating our expectation for negligible recovery
(0%-10%; rounded estimate: 0%) at default."

On Feb. 2, 2018, Cenveo announced that it had filed for Chapter 11
bankruptcy protection in the Southern District of New York, White
Plains. At the time of the filing, Cenveo's adjusted leverage was

following the reinstatement of the Medical Marijuana Registration
Certificate and Marijuana Testing Facility License held by its
wholly-owned subsidiary, Digipath Labs.  This follows a full audit
of the Company's lab facilities by the Nevada Department of
Taxation, Marijuana Enforcement Division and the Department's
approval of the Plan of Correction submitted by Digipath Labs.
Digipath Labs also received its Clark County Business License
allowing full operation in the county and the state.

Todd Denkin, Digipath's president and COO, commented, "We are
obviously pleased with the decision by Nevada's Department of
Taxation to reinstate our lab testing licenses, and thank the team
of inspectors for the focus and speed with which they worked with
us.  We are also very grateful to all of our clients who have been
so supportive of us during this process and we already have a full

DONALD NIX: Proposes $300K Private Sale of Paterson Property to JCM
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Donald Nix, LLC, asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of
New Jersey to authorize the private sale of the real property
located at 359-367 Hamilton Avenue, Paterson, Passaic County, New
Jersey, also known as Block 3507, Lot 17, to JCM Investors 1012,
LLC for $300,000.

A hearing on the Motion is set for Feb. 27, 2018.

tHE Debtor acquired the Property for $275,000 in 2004.  A tax lien
certificate acquired in 2014 by John A. Fressie Revocable Living
Trust UAD 11/12/20 ("Defendant/Lienholder") in the amount of
$15,938 was foreclosed upon on April 17, 2016.

By 2016, THE Debtor realized the Property needed to be sold for
economic reasons.  Prior to filing for Bankruptcy, it caused the
Property to be multiple listed for 6 months which produced one
credible offer.

The Buyer, a prominent investor/developer in the community, and
Debtor had terms agreed and were about to execute a contract.

On March 1, 2017, the Debtor filed a petition for relief under
Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code ahead of a tax lien foreclosure.
The intention was to allow time to execute the contract and
complete the sale of the Property, the proceeds from which would
have enabled Debtor to pay the tax liens in full and realize
substantial equity in the Property.  The automatic stay would
provide Debtor time necessary to accomplish this.

On March 15, 2017, the Debtor's Chapter 11 case was dismissed due
to inadvertent electronic filing error through no fault of the
Debtor.  Short Notice application for motion to reinstate was
denied, despite recitation that a foreclosure judgment entry was
imminent and that irreparable harm would be done without Stay
protection.  On April 17, 2018, judgment of foreclosure was entered
just days before the return date of the motion to reinstate.

On July 12, 2017, the Debtor filed a petition for relief under
Chapter 11 of the Bankruptcy Code for the purpose of avoiding the
real estate transfer and selling the Property as had been
previously planned.  It also retained Special Counsel Michael J.
Viscount, Jr. of Fox Rothschild, to bring an adversary proceeding.
An Adversary Proceeding was immediately commenced against the
Defendant/Lienholder.  The Complaint asked for relief to be
granted, avoiding preference and fraudulent transfer of the
Property pursuant to 11 U.S.C. Sections 544b, 547 and 548, as well
as other relief.

The Defendant/Lienholder failed to answer the complaint despite the
Plaintiff/Debtors informally offering an extension of more than 2
months.  The Defendant/Lienholder made it known he had no plan to
answer.

On Nov. 9, 2017, a Default was entered.  Special Counsel for the
Plaintiff/Debtor moved for a Default Judgment and we were advised
the Judge would be deciding on the papers, as the proofs were
previously put on the record at the Adversary Proceeding hearing.

Starting early in the case, the attorneys for the Plaintiff/Debtor
and the Defendant/Lienholder had entered into negotiations.  The
Plaintiff/ Debtor asked Judge Meisel to withhold her default ruling
in anticipation of a settlement.  However, after many months, the
parties were unable to come to terms.  As a result, Special Counsel
for the Debtor wrote to Judge Meisel to inform her that there would
be no settlement.  He requested she provide her ruling on the
Default Judgment.  Shortly thereafter, Judge Meisel recused herself
from the case.

After the New Year, Debtor reached out to several realtors, one
from Coldwell Banker, and one from Weichert.  Each reported back
that they were unaware of any potential buyers at this time.  This
past week Debtor was approached by the same buyer who was about to
purchase the Property just before the foreclosure judgment was
entered.

Negotiations resulted in the subject Contract with a purchase price
and terms beneficial to the Estate.  All approved creditors claims,
administrative and Trustee fees, would be fully satisfied from the
proceeds of the sale.  All encumbrances will attach to the Debtors
proceeds to the extent that they are valid and perfected, in the
same priority as they are entitled under applicable law.  Further,
the sale would allow the Debtor to realize equity and serve to
resolve the issues in not only the Adversary Proceeding, but the
underlying Chapter 11 case as well.

This is a private, arms-length transaction on favorable terms.  The
Buyer is not an insider, and the purchase price would enable all
creditors to be fully satisfied and all administrative fees to be
paid.  Moreover, this is a clean contract and the Property is being
sold "as is."  There is no mortgage contingency, no inspection
contingency and no real estate broker involved, and the Buyer takes
the Property subject to an environmental condition.  For these
reasons, the sale would benefit the Estate and enable resolution of
the underlying Chapter 11 case.

The Debtor has entered into a Contract with the Buyer, the material
terms of which are:

     a. Purchase Price: The full purchase price is $300,000.

     b. Deposit: There is a good faith deposit of $15,000.  In the
event the Court does not approve the sale, or if marketable title
cannot be obtained, Buyer will be entitled to a refund of his
Deposit.

     c. Closing Date: The date is tentatively scheduled for Feb.
27, 2018.  The Buyer is aware of the necessity for court approval
and that it may delay the scheduled closing date.

     d. Taxes: All past due taxes, tax liens, and costs of sale
will be paid at closing.  The current taxes will be prorated.

     e. The Debtor asks that all remaining proceeds be used to pay
all approved administrative expenses, valid creditors' claims,
trustee fees, and amounts, all fees necessary to close be disbursed
from proceeds at closing without further Court order and that the
balance of the proceeds be released to the Debtor.

     f. Contract Conditions:

          i. The Property is being sold "as is."  It will be
vacant, and free and clear of possessory leasehold interests.  The
Buyer is agreeing to allow continuation of the tenancy of Nix
Transportation, Inc.; Nix Transportation will be allowed to remain
on the premises rent free for 4 months from the date of closing.
Thereafter, Nix Transportation will have to pay $500 per day until
it vacates the premises.  $40,000 will be held in escrow from the
Debtor's equity proceeds to be drawn upon if necessary, to cover
per diem in the event of such holdover, should Nix Transportation
fail to vacate at the end of 4 months.
          
         ii. The Property will be conveyed free and clear of liens,
and
with marketable title.

        iii. The Buyer takes subject to an environmental condition
caused by an underground oil tank, long since removed.  It will at
his expense undertake to do what is required to obtain a Letter of
'No further action necessary' from the DEP.

         iv. There are no realtors involved in this transaction.

          v. This is a cash Buyer and there is no mortgage
contingency.

         vi. The Buyer has already inspected the Property and is
satisfied.  There is no inspection contingency.

        vii. The Debtor will make application to engage a real
estate attorney.

A copy of the Contract attached to the Motion is available for free
at http://bankrupt.com/misc/Donald_Nix_33_Sales.pdf

The Debtor, acting in its capacity as trustee, asks for Court
approval to reject the nonresidential lease of Miguel Rivera for
the following reasons: (i) to satisfy the condition of vacant
premises under the Contract; (ii) habitual late payment of tenant;
(iii) tenant's rent is well below market for the area, and not in
the best interest of the estate.

The Contract proceeds will be disbursed as follows: (i)
Defendant/lienholder - $108,000(approx.); (ii) jr lienholder -
$40,000 (approx.); (iii) counsel fee - $10,000; (iv) special
counsel fees - $20,000 (balance after $18,500 retainer pd); (v)
r.e. closing attorney - $5,000; (vi) trustee disbursement fee -
$1,750; (vii) unsecured creditors claims disputed by the Debtor -
$10,000 (maximum if allowed); (viii) property taxes - $10,000
(estimated); (ix) realty transfer tax - $2,200 (estimated); and (x)
escrow to cover rental if main tenant overstays - $40,000 (maximum
amount).  The total distribution is $246,950.

The distribution amounts set forth above are estimated at the high
end and account for contingencies some of which may not occur. A
more definitive distribution list will be provided to the Court.
It is clear that the proceeds from the contract will be enough to
satisfy all creditors, administrative fees, trustees fees, and
expenses.

The Debtor asks to pay all debts and also realize equity from the
proceeds of the sale of the Property.  This would resolve the
issues in the adversary proceeding and the underlying Chapter 11
case.

EMPIRE GENERATING: S&P Cuts CCR to 'CCC', Outlook Negative
----------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said it lowered its rating on Empire Generating
Co. LLC to 'CCC' from 'B'. The outlook is negative. At the same
time, S&P revised its recovery rating on the debt to '4' from '3',
indicating its expectations for average (30%-50%; rounded estimate:
40%) recovery if a default occurs.

Unfavorable market pressures that have resulted in compressed
energy margins, coupled with the expiration of Brownfield
Redevelopment Tax Credits, have led to financial underperformance
at Empire Generating Co. LLC over the past several quarters. As a
result, sponsors injected $3.4 million into the project as an
equity cure to a covenant breach in the third quarter of 2017, a
solution that can only be used twice in any consecutive 12-month
period, according to the credit agreement. S&P said, "Under our
forward-looking base case scenario, we now believe there is
elevated likelihood that the project may have breached its covenant
threshold in the fourth quarter of 2017 (to be reported around the
end of April 2018) and may also breach the covenant in the first
few quarters of 2018 (first quarter numbers are likely to be
reported at end of May 2018). The 'CCC' rating reflects our view
that Empire is vulnerable to further covenant breaches (a technical
default) in the absence of favorable market forces (i.e. widening
spark spreads or lower delivered fuel cost) or accelerated debt pay
down initiated by sponsor cash injections.
The negative outlook reflects our view that the project is
vulnerable and is dependent upon favorable business, financial, and
economic conditions to maintain compliance with its financial
covenant over the next 12 months. We view the issuer's capital
structure to be unsustainable given current market conditions. We
expect that the project will have difficulty meeting the 1.1x
covenant test over the next two or three reporting periods, at
which time it could face a default if not waived or cured."

S&P said, "A downgrade could occur if we believe that the issuer is
likely to default over the next six months without an unforeseen
positive development.

"An improvement in the rating could occur if Empire's financial
performance improved as a result of increased power prices--which
we think is unlikely right now. This would likely require
significant unforeseen market developments. We could also revise
the outlook to stable or raise the rating if the sponsors were to
facilitate accelerated debt repayment, such that we no longer view
the capital structure as unsustainable."


EQUIAN BUYER: S&P Affirms 'B' CCR Amid OmniClaim Acquisition
------------------------------------------------------------
U.S.-based technology-enabled medical payment audit service
provider Equian Buyer Corp. is planning to raise a $315 million
first-lien term loan add-on to finance its acquisition of cost
containment and payment integrity solutions provider OmniClaim.

S&P Global Ratings affirmed its 'B' corporate credit rating on
Indianapolis-based Equian Buyer Corp. The outlook is stable.

S&P said, "At the same time, we affirmed our 'B' issue-level rating
on the company's first-lien credit facilities, including a $30
million revolving commitment expiring in 2022, $740 million term
loan due in 2024 (amount including the $315 million add on). The
recovery rating on the facilities is '3', indicating our
expectation for meaningful recovery (50%-70%; rounded estimate:
revised to 50% from 60%) in the event of a payment default.

"We estimate the company's adjusted debt will be approximately $787
million at closing, which includes our adjustments for operating
leases and contingent debt obligations.

"The rating affirmation reflects our view that Equian will
successfully integrate OmniClaim and will reduce leverage to the
mid- to low-6x area at year-end 2019, following an uptick in
leverage in 2018.  We forecast Equian will continue to generate
healthy free operating cash flow of $40 million to $45 million
annually. We believe the company will likely focus this excess cash
flow on growth and acquisitions, and that deleveraging will result
from Equian achieving higher EBITDA rather than any material debt
reduction. We expect its margins to improve to the high-20% area
and increase slightly as the company benefits from increased
automation and analytics capabilities.

"The stable outlook reflects our view that Equian will integrate
OmniClaim with minimal client disruption and achieve modest
synergies over the next 12 months. However, we expect the increased
debt burden and somewhat limited EBITDA contribution from the
acquisition will cause debt to EBITDA to rise to approximately 7x
at year-end 2018. However, we expect organic growth and expense
control will bring leverage down to the low- to mid-6x area by
year-end 2019.

"We could lower our ratings if Equian's credit metrics do not
strengthen over the near term and leverage remains above 7.5x. This
could occur from an unexpected event such as an IT security breach
or other reputation-damaging event, a failure to integrate
OMniClaim smoothly, unexpected customer contract losses, mergers
and acquisitions, or a change in shareholder distributions leading
to a higher debt burden.Under our base case scenario, the company
has very limited capacity for additional debt.

"Although unlikely over the next 12 months, we could raise the
ratings if the company meaningfully increases scale and diversifies
its end-market concentration. We could also raise our ratings if
New Mountain Capital reduces its ownership stake below 40%, with
Equian improving its debt to EBITDA below 5x and maintaining at
least an adequate liquidity assessment."


FENIX PARTS: BMO Harris Agrees to Forbearance Thru Feb. 28
----------------------------------------------------------
Fenix Parts, Inc., has entered into a Forbearance Agreement to its
Credit Facility with BMO Harris Bank N.A. and its Canadian
affiliate, Bank of Montreal, the Company disclosed in a Form 8-K
filing last month.

The forbearance period under the Forbearance Agreement expires
February 28, 2018.  A copy of the Forbearance Agreement is
available at https://is.gd/2mScpE

Under this Forbearance Agreement dated Dec. 29, 2017, and announced
on Jan. 4, 2018, the lenders have agreed to refrain from exercising
their rights and remedies under the Credit Facility with respect to
the Company's non-compliance with applicable financial and other
covenants and any further non-compliance with such covenants.

The Forbearance Agreement permits the Company, among other things,
to add certain quarterly interest payments otherwise due each
quarter of 2017 to the principal amount of debt outstanding and
defer the principal payments that were otherwise due at the end of
each quarter in 2017 to the end of the forbearance period.

Since June 30, 2016, the Company's failure to deliver quarterly
reports on a timely basis and its failure to comply with certain
financial covenants have triggered defaults under the Credit
Facility. On March 27, 2017, the Company entered a Forbearance
Agreement with BMO, which was amended on June 23, 2017.

The Dec. 29 Forbearance Agreement supersedes the previous
agreement.

The Dec. 29 Forbearance Agreement provides that the Company
acknowledges that as of the open of business on Dec. 29, 2017:

     (a) Borrowers are indebted to Lenders in respect of the
         U.S. Revolving Loans in the principal amount of
         $16,631,151.75,

     (b) Borrowers are indebted to Lenders in respect of the
         Canadian Revolving Loans in the principal amount of
         $962,499.56,

     (c) Borrowers are indebted to Lenders in respect of the Term
         Loan in the aggregate principal amount of $9,143,073.06,

     (d) Borrowers are indebted to Lenders in respect of the L/C
         Obligations in the principal amount of $1,145,000.00,

     (e) Debtors are indebted to Lenders in respect of all
         interest in respect of the Loans and Reimbursement
         Obligations in the amount of $439,323.91 (which amount
         excludes accrued "Default Rate Interest"; and

     (f) Borrowers are indebted to Lenders in respect of a
         "Forbearance Fee" in the amount of $500,000.

The Company noted that, if it is unable to reach further agreement
with BMO to extend the forbearance period and/or obtain waivers or
amendments to the existing Credit Facility, find acceptable
alternative financing, obtain equity contributions or arrange a
business combination, the lenders could elect to declare some or
all of the amounts outstanding under the Credit Facility to be
immediately due and payable. If this happens, the Company does not
expect to have sufficient liquidity to pay the outstanding amounts
under the Credit Facility. In addition, the Company has significant
obligations under contingent consideration agreements related to
certain acquired companies, and it will need access to additional
credit to be able to satisfy these obligations. As a result,
substantial doubt exists regarding the ability of the Company to
continue as a going concern.

Since March 2017, the Company's Board of Directors has engaged
Stifel, Nicolaus & Co., Inc., a subsidiary of Stifel Financial
Corp., to advise the Board and Company management and to assist in
pursuing a range of potential strategic and financial transactions,
including a business combination, debt and/or equity financing, or
a strategic investment into the Company, that will provide the
Company with improved liquidity and maximize shareholder value.

Since the appointment, Stifel has conducted a comprehensive,
confidential market outreach program to identify potential
interested parties. In addition, interested parties have approached
Stifel and the Company. The extensive nature of the outreach and
the Company's difficulties in filing its SEC reports have slowed
the process.

The Company said it has received a substantial number of proposals
for financial transactions and the Special Committee of the Board
overseeing the process has reviewed each of the various proposals
with Stifel.  The Company remains in active discussions with
certain of the interested parties regarding a potential
transaction, and the Board remains committed to the process but has
not set a definitive timetable for completion of this process. The
Board, through its Special Committee, has, and will continue to,
carefully consider all alternatives, but there can be no assurance
that this process will ultimately result in a transaction or other
strategic investment of any kind. The Company does not intend to
disclose any periodic developments or provide further updates on
the progress or status of this process unless it deems further
disclosure is appropriate or required.

                       About Fenix Parts

Westchester, Illinois-based Fenix Parts, Inc. (Pink Sheets: FENX),
is a recycler and reseller of original equipment manufacturer
("OEM") automotive products. The company's primary business is auto
recycling, which is the recovery and resale of OEM parts,
components and systems reclaimed from damaged, totaled or low value
vehicles. Customers include collision repair shops (body shops),
mechanical repair shops, auto dealerships and individual retail
customers. Fenix provides its customers with high-quality recycled
OEM products, extensive inventory and product availability,
responsive customer service and fast delivery.

Fenix was founded in 2014 to create a network that offers sales,
fulfillment and distribution in key regional markets in the United
States and Canada. The Fenix companies have been in business an
average of more than 25 years and currently operate from 16
locations throughout the Eastern U.S. and in Ontario, Canada.

Fenix has total assets of $87,500,000 and total liabilities of
$55,586,000 as of March 31, 2017, according to its quarterly report
on Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2017, and filed on
October 31, 2017.


FENIX PARTS: Settles Rift with Ex-Owners of Canadian Founding Cos
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Fenix Parts, Inc., has settled a dispute with former owners of the
Canadian Founding Companies regarding the calculation of contingent
consideration under a 2015 acquisition agreement, the Company said
in a press statement dated Jan. 19, 2018.

Under the settlement, the Company paid these former owners $4.2
million in cash and released 280,000 shares of exchangeable
preferred stock from an escrow.  Also, as part of the settlement,
the former owners agreed to convert all their 1.33 million
exchangeable preferred shares into an equal number of shares of
Fenix Parts common stock. The cash portion of the settlement was
less than the letter of credit securing the liability, allowing the
Company to reduce indebtedness as calculated under its credit
facility and providing $0.6 million of additional borrowing
capacity, which the Company has used to pay operating expenses.

Kent Robertson, CEO of Fenix Parts, stated, "We believe the
financial terms of the settlement are favorable to the Company and
its stockholders and settlement of the dispute allows us to avoid
costly and uncertain arbitration, simplifies our capital structure
and resolves uncertainty that has negatively impacted our ability
to pursue strategic and financial transactions."

Also on Jan. 19, the Company disclosed certain preliminary and
unaudited financial results for the quarter ended June 30, 2017 and
for the quarter and nine months ended September 30, 2017.

Fenix said net revenues for the second quarter of 2017 were
approximately $32 million. In addition, the Company's net revenues
for the third quarter of 2017 were approximately $30.5 million. For
the nine months ended September 30, 2017, revenues were $96.6
million compared to approximately $99 million for the first nine
months of 2016. The year-over-year revenue decline is primarily the
result of the suspension of operations at the Company's facility in
Scarborough (Toronto), Ontario, which had been generating
approximately $2 million per quarter in revenues, as a result of a
fire that occurred on April 6, 2017, and a reduction in part sales
driven by lower available inventory.

Mr. Robertson commented, "We continue to see strong demand for our
recycled OEM parts, supported by positive industry dynamics.
Unfortunately, we are not getting the full benefit of the strong
demand and higher commodity prices because of our reduced car
volume and the negative impact of the suspension of operations as a
result of the fire at the Toronto facility. The Company continues
to face significant challenges due to its strained liquidity
position as a result of high professional fees for the periods
covered in this update and limits to its borrowing capacity under
its credit facility."

Mr. Robertson continued, "We reduced the amount spent on vehicle
inventory for the full-service operations by approximately 8% for
the first nine months of 2017 as compared to the prior year, and we
expect this trend to continue as we identify additional
opportunities to further reduce costs. The conclusion of the SEC
investigation and suspension of SEC reporting requirements will
help support these cost-saving efforts going forward."
    
The Company has removed all the fire-related debris and received
the environmental approvals to restart the Toronto facility, and
permit requests have been filed to reconstruct the facility. The
permit review is underway, but the site will continue to be
non-operational until the Company receives all the necessary local
approvals. The Company has insurance to cover casualty and business
interruption losses; however, claims are subject to deductibles,
limits and certain exclusions, and insurance proceeds may not be
sufficient to cover all the losses incurred.

The Board of Directors of the Company, through its Special
Committee and its financial advisor, Stifel, Nicolaus & Co., Inc.,
continues to pursue a potential strategic and financial transaction

Westchester, Illinois-based Fenix Parts, Inc. (Pink Sheets: FENX),
is a recycler and reseller of original equipment manufacturer
("OEM") automotive products. The company's primary business is auto
recycling, which is the recovery and resale of OEM parts,
components and systems reclaimed from damaged, totaled or low value
vehicles. Customers include collision repair shops (body shops),
mechanical repair shops, auto dealerships and individual retail
customers. Fenix provides its customers with high-quality recycled
OEM products, extensive inventory and product availability,
responsive customer service and fast delivery.

Fenix was founded in 2014 to create a network that offers sales,
fulfillment and distribution in key regional markets in the United
States and Canada. The Fenix companies have been in business an
average of more than 25 years and currently operate from 16
locations throughout the Eastern U.S. and in Ontario, Canada.

Fenix has total assets of $87,500,000 and total liabilities of
$55,586,000 as of March 31, 2017, according to its quarterly report
on Form 10-Q for the period ended March 31, 2017, and filed on
October 31, 2017.


FENIX PARTS: Suspends Reporting Obligations as SEC Probe Ends
-------------------------------------------------------------
Fenix Parts, Inc., has suspended its reporting obligations under
Section 15(d) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended,
the Company said in a press statement dated Jan. 19, 2018.

The Company said it was able to take this action because its common
stock was delisted from Nasdaq on June 29, 2017 and because there
were fewer than 300 shareholders of record on January 1, 2018. The
Company's reporting obligations, which include the filing of
quarterly reports on Form 10-Q, annual reports on Form 10-K and
current reports on Form 8-K, will remain suspended so long as there
are fewer than 300 record holders of the Company's common stock.

The Company expects its common stock to continue to be traded on
the OTC Pink, operated by the OTC Markets Group Inc. (also known as
the "Pink Sheets"), so long as market makers demonstrate an
interest in trading in the Company's common stock. However, there
is no assurance that trading in the Company's common stock will
continue on the OTC Pink Market or on any other securities exchange
or quotation medium.

Kent Robertson, CEO of Fenix Parts, commented, "The decision of the
Company's Board of Directors to suspend the Company's SEC reporting
obligations was made after careful consideration of the advantages
and disadvantages of being a public company under current
circumstances and took into account several factors, including the
significant costs associated with preparing and filing periodic
reports with the SEC and high outside accounting, audit, legal and
other costs and expenses associated with being a public company,
including Sarbanes Oxley compliance, as well as the small number of
Company stockholders and the relatively low level of trading in the
Company's common stock in the months following the delisting of the
Company's common stock from the Nasdaq Stock Market. This decision
should result in a benefit to the Company's stockholders by
reducing expenses and permitting management and staff to focus more
energy on operating matters."

In lieu of SEC filings, the Company intends to provide periodic
updates to its shareholders that will include information about the
Company's financial condition and other important business
developments, as it deems appropriate.


Fenix also said it received a letter from the staff of the United
States Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) advising the
Company that the SEC has completed its inquiry into the Company and
no enforcement action has been recommended. The inquiry was first
disclosed by the Company in October 2016.

Mr. Robertson commented, "We are pleased to have a favorable
outcome and closure to this matter. The conclusion of this matter
will allow Fenix to stop incurring significant legal costs and
committing management resources associated with the inquiry."

                        About Finjan

Established over 20 years ago, Finjan -- http://www.finjan.com/--
is a cybersecurity company focused on four business lines:
intellectual property licensing and enforcement, mobile security
application development, advisory services, and investing in
cybersecurity technologies and intellectual property.  Licensing
and enforcement of the Company's cybersecurity patent portfolio is
operated by its wholly-owned subsidiary Finjan, Inc.  Finjan became
a wholly owned subsidiary of Finjan Holdings in June of 2013 after
a merger transaction, following which we began trading on the OTC
Markets.  The Company's common stock has been trading on the NASDAQ
Capital Market since May 2014.  Since the merger, the Company
continues to execute on its existing business lines while outlining
a vision and focusing on growth.  Finjan is based in East Palo
Alto, California.

Finjan reported a net loss attributable to common stockholders of
$6.43 million for the year ended Dec. 31, 2016, a net loss

"Based on current forecasts, management believes that our cash and

needs for working capital for at least the next 12 months from the
date of filing of this quarterly report.  Such forecasts include
approximately $5.9 million of licensing revenue to be received by
March 31, 2018 under existing contracts.  We may, however,
encounter unforeseen difficulties that may deplete our capital
resources more rapidly than anticipated.  If we need additional
funding, either debt or equity, to support our licensing and
enforcement activities, planned research and development activities
and to better solidify our financial position, it may not be
available on favorable terms, or at all.  Under such circumstances,
if we are unable to obtain additional funding on a timely basis,
the Company may be required to curtail or terminate some or all our
business plans," stated Finjan in its quarterly report for the
period ended Sept. 30, 2017.

HCR MANORCARE: Seeks Dismissal of QCP's Receivership Claims
-----------------------------------------------------------
Quality Care Properties, Inc., intends to continue to pursue a
receivership complaint against HCR ManorCare, QCP disclosed in a
Form 8-K filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

On August 17, 2017, QCP filed a complaint in Superior Court of the
State of California for the County of Los Angeles against its
principal tenant, HCR III Healthcare, LLC, and its parent, HCR
ManorCare, Inc., seeking the appointment of an independent receiver
for QCP's skilled nursing and assisted living/memory care
facilities.

QCP most recently extended the deadline for HCR ManorCare's
response to QCP's receivership complaint to January 26, 2018.

On January 26, HCR ManorCare responded to the complaint by filing a
motion to dismiss certain claims in the receivership complaint.

"QCP intends to pursue available judicial paths, will object to HCR
ManorCare's request for dismissal of the receivership action and
will continue to pursue the receivership complaint," the Company
said on January 30, 2018.

QCP noted that HCR ManorCare continues to be in default under the
Master Lease and Security Agreement, dated as of April 7, 2011, as
amended and supplemented, and the Guaranty of Obligations effective
as of February 11, 2013, with respect to obligations under the
Master Lease.  Furthermore, HCR ManorCare has failed to pay the
Reduced Cash Rent amount of $14 million due on January 25, 2018
under the Master Lease.

                         Forbearance Deal

On April 5, 2017, QCP entered into a forbearance agreement with HCR
III and HCRMC -- together, "HCR ManorCare".  Among other things,
the Agreement required HCR ManorCare to make cash rent payments of
$32 million for each of April, May and June of 2017, with a
deferral of payment of the additional $7.5 million per month
otherwise due until the earlier of (i) July 5, 2017 and (ii) an
early termination of the Agreement, with all deferred amounts
becoming immediately due and payable upon an early termination.
The Agreement also required HCR ManorCare to deliver its 2016
audited financial statements and auditor consent to QCP not later
than April 10, 2017, which were received on April 10, 2017 and
included a "going concern" exception for HCR ManorCare in the
auditor opinion.

During the term of the Agreement, QCP also agreed to provide HCR
ManorCare with a temporary secured extension of credit of up to $7
million per month during each of April, May and June of 2017 (up to
$21 million in the aggregate), which would be due and payable in
full not later than December 31, 2017, subject to acceleration upon
certain events.

HCR ManorCare made the reduced cash rent payments of $32 million
for each of April and May of 2017. HCR ManorCare borrowed $7
million for April 2017 under the temporary secured credit
agreement.

On June 2, 2017, QCP received $15 million from HCR ManorCare,
constituting $8 million of rent and repayment of the $7 million
secured loan extended pursuant to the Agreement, rather than the
full $32 million in rent required to be paid for June 2017 under
the terms of the Agreement.

In a Form 10-Q quarterly report filed in November, QCR said HCR
ManorCare is required to pay approximately $39.5 million in monthly
rent under the parties' Master Lease.

On July 7, 2017, QCP received approximately $8.2 million from HCR
ManorCare.  On July 7, QCP delivered a notice of default under the
Master Lease relating to nonpayment of rent due and other matters.
The notice of default demanded payment of all current and past due
rent, totaling approximately $79.6 million,  by the end of the day
on July 14, 2017.  The amount was not paid, and therefore, an Event
of Default exists under the Master Lease, requiring the immediate
payment of an additional approximately $265 million of Tranche B
DRO and permitting the QCP lessors to terminate the Master Lease,
appoint receivers or exercise other remedies with respect to any
and all leased properties. On  August 3, 2017, QCP received
approximately $23.0 million in rent from HCR ManorCare.

On September 25, October 19 and November 2, 2017, QCP announced
that it had agreed with HCR ManorCare to extend the deadline for
HCR ManorCare's response to QCP's receivership complaint to October
18, November 1 and December 1, 2017, respectively, in each case
subject to Court approval (which was granted), to allow for the
continuation of workout discussions, including with respect to the
sale or re-leasing of any of the HCRMC Properties. HCR ManorCare
continues to be in default under the Master Lease. HCR ManorCare
paid approximately $17.6 million and $21.0 million in rent for
September and October 2017, respectively. Over $446 million in rent
and other obligations continue to be immediately due and payable
under the Master Lease.

As of June 30, 2017, in connection with management's belief that an
Event of Default was imminent and the closing of QCP's fiscal
quarter, the Company expected to have the ability to sell or
re-lease any HCRMC Property unencumbered by the Master Lease. This
resulted in a reduction in the expected holding period of certain
facilities, which resulted in an impairment charge of $382.0
million during the second quarter of 2017.  As of September 30,
2017, the Company determined there was a reduction in the expected
holding period of certain additional facilities, which resulted in
an impairment charge of $9.9 million during the third quarter of
2017.

QCP said in its quarterly report that it incurred legal, advisory
and diligence costs related to its restructuring and workout
discussions with HCRMC totaling $5.5 million and $13.4 million
during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017,
respectively.

The Company also recognized HCRMC rental and related revenues
totaling $48.9 million and $116.4 million for the three months
ended September 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively, and $226.2 million
and $345.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 and
2016, respectively.

Headquartered in Bethesda, Maryland, Quality Care Properties, Inc.
is a real estate company focused on post-acute/skilled nursing and
memory care/assisted living properties.  QCP's properties are
located in 29 states and include 257 post-acute/skilled nursing
properties, 61 memory care/assisted living properties, a surgical
hospital and a medical office building as of October 20, 2017.

QCP was formed in 2016 to hold:

     * the HCR ManorCare, Inc. portfolio,
     * 28 other healthcare related properties,
     * a deferred rent obligation due from HCRMC under a master
       lease agreement -- Tranche B DRO; and
     * an equity method investment in HCRMC previously held by
       HCP, Inc.

QCP was a wholly owned subsidiary of HCP.  It was separated from
HCP, effective October 31, 2016.

At Sept. 30, 2017, QCP had total assets of $4,464,183,000 against
total liabilities of $1,804,133,000.

                           *     *     *

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on Oct. 24, 2017,
Moody's Investors Service confirmed QCP's ratings, including its
Caa1 corporate family rating (CFR) following QCP's announcement
that the REIT's work-out discussions with its struggling tenant,
HCR Manorcare, Inc. (HCR, unrated), are continuing.  Moody's said
the continued discussions indicate that both QCP and HCR are
pursuing an out-of-court resolution, a welcome development for QCP
from a credit perspective.

As reported by the TCR on Dec. 20, 2017, S&P Global Ratings lowered
its corporate credit rating on QCP to 'CCC' from 'B-' after the
company announced it would extend the deadline to negotiate with
HCR ManorCare until Jan. 15, 2018, with no amendment or waiver
reached on the covenant under its credit facilities.  HCR's
operating performance has weakened significantly, limiting the
company's ability to pay rent sufficient enough to alleviate a
covenant breach. According to S&P's projections, the debt service
coverage covenant (DSC) could be breached as early as the first or
second quarter of 2018.

infrastructure.  HMNY is headquartered in New York, NY and listed
on the NASDAQ Capital Market under the symbol HMNY.

As of Sept. 30, 2017, Helios and Matheson had $17.46 million in
total assets, $41.54 million in total liabilities, $2.09 million in
redeemable common stock and a total shareholders' deficit of $26.17
million.

The Company had a net loss of $7.381 million and $2.110 million for
the years ended Dec. 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively.  As a result,
these conditions had raised substantial doubt regarding its ability
to continue as a going concern.

As of Dec. 31, 2016, the Company had cash and working capital of
$2.747 million and $1.229 million, respectively.  During the year
ended Dec. 31, 2016, the Company used cash from operations of
$2.134 million.  In addition, as of the date the financial
statements were issued, the Company has notes receivable of $6.900
million from a convertible note holder.  Management believes that
current cash on hand coupled with the notes receivable makes it
probable that the Company's cash resources will be sufficient to
meet the Company's cash requirements through approximately April
2018.  If necessary, management also determined that it is probable
that external sources of debt and/or equity financing could be
obtained based on management's history of being able to raise
capital coupled with current favorable market conditions.  As a
result of both management's plans and current favorable trends in
improving cash flow, the Company concluded that the initial
conditions which raised substantial doubt regarding the ability to
continue as a going concern have been alleviated.

HOVNANIAN ENTERPRISES: Closes Financing Transactions With GSO
-------------------------------------------------------------
Hovnanian Enterprises, Inc., has closed its previously announced
financing transactions with GSO Capital Partners LP, Blackstone's
credit platform, and certain funds managed or advised by it.

As part of such financing transactions, the Company's wholly-owned
subsidiary, K. Hovnanian Enterprises, Inc., accepted all of the
$170,226,000 aggregate principal amount of the 8.000% Senior Notes
due 2019 tendered in its previously announced exchange offer with
respect to the 8% 2019 Notes (representing 72.14% of the aggregate
principal amount outstanding prior to the Exchange Offer).  In
connection therewith, on Feb. 1, 2018, K. Hovnanian issued
$90,590,000 aggregate principal amount of its 13.5% Senior Notes
due 2026 and $90,120,000 aggregate principal amount of its 5.0%
Senior Notes due 2040 pursuant to an Indenture, dated as of
Feb. 1, 2018, by and among K. Hovnanian, the Company, the other
guarantors named therein and the trustee named therein.  In
addition, K. Hovnanian at Sunrise Trail III, LLC, a wholly-owned
subsidiary of Hovnanian, purchased for $26,519,999 in cash, as part
of the Exchange Offer, $26,000,000 aggregate principal amount of
the 8% 2019 Notes, in accordance with the previously disclosed
terms of the Exchange Offer.

In addition, as previously announced, K. Hovnanian and the Company
entered into credit agreements, dated Jan. 29, 2018, with GSO and
certain funds managed or advised by it that provide for (i) a
senior unsecured term loan credit facility, consisting of $132.5
million of initial term loans, and up to $80.0 million of delayed
draw term loans available to refinance 8% 2019 Notes that remain
outstanding following the consummation of the Exchange Offer and
(ii) a senior secured first lien revolving credit facility of up to
$125.0 million of senior secured first priority revolving loans to
refinance its current $75 million first priority secured term loan
and for general corporate purposes.  On Feb. 1, 2018, K. Hovnanian
closed on the borrowing of $132.5 million of initial term loans,
the proceeds of which were used to redeem, on Feb. 1, 2018, all of
K. Hovnanian's outstanding $132,546,000 aggregate principal amount
of 7.000% Senior Notes due 2019.  Other borrowings under these
credit facilities will be available on the dates and subject to the
terms and conditions set forth therein.

"We are pleased to have successfully closed this transaction and
with significant participation in the exchange offer," stated Ara
K. Hovnanian, Chairman of the Board, president and chief executive
officer.  "This refinancing will provide us with much-needed
financial flexibility and additional liquidity to help continue
growing our business.  Not only do the refinancing agreements push
out our 2019 maturities at favorable rates, but GSO has also
provided us with a $125 million credit facility to refinance our
$75 million term loan in September of 2018 and for general
corporate purposes and a commitment to purchase $25 million of
additional 10.5% senior secured notes to be issued in January 2019.
Our plan continues to be to use cash to pay off our unsecured
revolving credit facility at its maturity dates in 2018. Since our
next significant maturity is not until the end of 2021, we will be
focusing with increased concentration on reloading our land
position, executing to our business plan and further improving our
operating results."

                     About Hovnanian Enterprises

Hovnanian Enterprises, Inc., founded in 1959 by Kevork S.
Hovnanian, is headquartered in Red Bank, New Jersey.  The Company
is a homebuilder with operations in Arizona, California, Delaware,
Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, New Jersey, Ohio,
Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Texas, Virginia, Washington, D.C. and
West Virginia.  The Company's homes are marketed and sold under the
trade names K. Hovnanian Homes, Brighton Homes® and Parkwood
Builders.  As the developer of K. Hovnanian's Four Seasons
communities, the Company is also one of the nation's largest
builders of active lifestyle communities.

Hovnanian Enterprises reported a net loss of $332.2 million for the
year ended Oct. 31, 2017, compared to a net loss of $2.81 million
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.

                          *     *     *

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.

As reported by the TCR on Feb. 1, 2018, S&P Global Ratings lowered
its corporate credit rating on Hovnanian Enterprises to 'SD' from
'CC'.  The downgrade follows the disclosure that Hovnanian has
completed a debt exchange, whereby holders of up to $185 million of
the 8% senior notes received newly issued 3.5% unsecured notes due
2026, 5% unsecured notes due 2040, and $26.5 million in cash.  S&P
views the exchange as distressed since the new securities'
maturities extend beyond the original securities and because it
believed there was a realistic possibility of a conventional
default before the exchange.

Also in February 2018, Fitch Ratings downgraded Hovnanian
Enterprises' Issuer Default Rating (IDR) to 'C' from 'CCC'
following the company's announcement that it will be exchanging up
to $185 million of its $236 million 8% senior unsecured notes due
Nov. 1, 2019 for a combination of cash, new 13.5% senior unsecured
notes due 2026 and new 5% senior unsecured notes due 2040.

ICPW LIQUIDATION: Debtor, Equity Holders File LIquidating Plan
--------------------------------------------------------------
ICPW Liquidation Corporation, formerly known as Ironclad
Performance Wear Corporation, on Feb. 5, 2018, disclosed that the
Company and its subsidiary (the Debtors), together with the
Official Committee of Equity Security Holders (the OCEH and
together with the Debtors, the Plan Proponents), filed a Joint Plan
of Liquidation with the U. S. Bankruptcy Court, Central District of
California, San Fernando Valley Division.  Among other matters, the
Joint Plan of Liquidation provides for the cancellation of all
outstanding shares of the Company's common stock, an initial
estimated distribution to record holders as of a to-be-determined
record date of approximately 11.28 cents per share within 90 days
following confirmation of the Joint Plan of Liquidation, and a path
to a final distribution to the same record holders within 12 to 24
months following the initial distribution.

While the Joint Plan of Liquidation remains subject to further
revision by the Plan Proponents, the Bankruptcy Court has scheduled
a hearing on February 12, 2018 to consider the confirmation of the
Joint Plan of Liquidation.  The Debtors can provide no assurance
that the Bankruptcy Court will confirm the Joint Plan of
Liquidation at such hearing.

Among other matters, the Joint Plan of Liquidation provides that on
its effective date, which will be the first business day at least
15 days following the date of entry of the Bankruptcy Court order
confirming the Joint Plan of Liquidation and the satisfaction or
waiver by the Plan Proponents of certain conditions to the
effectiveness of the Joint Plan of Liquidation, the outstanding
shares of the Company's common stock will be cancelled in exchange
for non-transferrable beneficial interests in a trust (the Trust)
to be established as of the effective date of the Joint Plan of
Liquidation.  The purpose of the Trust is, among other matters, to
distribute proceeds to holders of beneficial interests in the Trust
(the Trust Beneficiaries) and investigate and, if appropriate,
pursue all claims and causes of action that belong to the Debtors'
bankruptcy estates that are assigned to the Trust for the benefit
of the Trust Beneficiaries.

The Trust Beneficiaries will be holders of record (the Record
Holders) of shares of the Company's common stock as of the date
determined in accordance with the Joint Plan of Liquidation (the
Record Date).  The Company has requested that the Financial
Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) halt trading in shares of the
Company's common stock, and the Company will advise FINRA of the
proposed Record Date not less than 10 days in advance of such
date.

Under the Joint Plan of Liquidation, all of the outstanding shares
of the Company's common stock existing on the effective date of the
Joint Plan of Liquidation will be cancelled, and the Record Holders
who owned shares of the Company's common stock on the Record Date
will become holders of non-transferable beneficial interests in the
Trust in exchange for those shares.  The Company or the Trustee of
the Trust will seek to terminate the Company's reporting
obligations in compliance with federal and state securities laws.

Pursuant to the Joint Plan of Liquidation, the Company's Board of
Directors, acting in its capacity as the administrator of the
Company's 2006 Stock Incentive Plan, as amended (the SIP), will
exercise its authority under the SIP to cancel on the date that is
two business days prior to the Record Date (the Option Cancellation
Date) all outstanding options to purchase shares of the Company's
common stock issued under the SIP without payment of any
consideration, and to notify (at least 10 days prior to the Option
Cancellation Date) each holder of such outstanding options of such
holder's right to exercise the vested portion of such outstanding
options by the earlier of (x) their current expiration date or (y)
5:00 PM Pacific Time on the day prior to the Option Cancellation
Date.  Subject to the terms of the SIP, the Trustee will recognize
all authorized shares of Common Stock issued to holders of Options
that have been exercised and fully paid prior to the Option
Cancellation Date (the Option Shares) as belonging to Record
Holders.  The Option Shares will be included in the total of Record
Shares to be cancelled as of the Effective Date.

The Company has preliminarily estimated an initial distribution of
11.28 cents per share by the Trustee based upon estimated available
funds of $9,659,669 to the Record Holders and cancellation of
85,646,354 Record Shares on the Effective Date.  If any of these
assumptions proves to be inaccurate, that will necessarily effect
on a dollar-for-dollar basis (higher or lower) the amount of the
initial distribution to be made to the Record Holders and the
availability of one or more secondary distributions.  The Company
can provide no assurance that the initial distribution from the
Trust to Trust Beneficiaries will equal or exceed 11.28 cents per
share.  The actual amount of the initial distribution from the
Trust to Trust Beneficiaries will be determined by the Trustee of
the Trust once the Trust is established and funds are transferred
to the Trust from and after the Effective Date.

INTERNAP CORP: S&P Affirms 'B' CCR on Acquisition of SingleHop
--------------------------------------------------------------
U.S. data center operator Internap Corp. has signed an agreement to
acquire SingleHop LLC, a managed hosting provider based in Chicago,
for $132 million in cash. Internap will finance the transaction
with a $135 million add-on to its first-lien term loan due 2022.

S&P Global Ratings affirmed its 'B' corporate credit rating on
Atlanta-based Internap Corp. The outlook is stable.

S&P said, "We also lowered our rating on the company's first-lien
debt to 'B' from 'B+' and revised the recovery rating to '3' from
'2'. The '3' recovery rating indicates our expectation for
meaningful (50%-70%; rounded estimate: 65%) recovery in the event
of payment default.

"The rating affirmation reflects our view that despite the increase
in pro forma adjusted debt to EBITDA to about 6.2x (including a
full year's worth of earnings from SingleHop) from about 5.7x,
leverage is still within our parameters for the 'B' corporate
credit rating, including leverage below 6.5x. Furthermore, we
expect modest deleveraging over the next year from mid-single-digit
percentage EBITDA growth, primarily from organic earnings growth in
the company's profitable colocation business combined with cost
synergies.

"The stable outlook reflects our expectation for continued EBITDA
growth over the next 12 months, resulting from a continued shift in
revenue to higher-margin services and our expectation for modest
FOCF in 2018, with adequate covenant headroom and liquidity. While
we believe Internap will benefit from increased IT outsourcing,
including favorable supply-demand dynamics in its core markets, its
noncore IP services and partner-controlled colocation businesses
constrain leverage reduction and growth prospects.

"We could lower the rating if leverage increases above 6.5x on a
sustained basis. Such a scenario would likely result from a decline
in operating performance within the company's core colocation,
hosting, and cloud businesses such that margins are more than 200
basis points lower than our base-case forecast. This would include
higher churn and pricing pressure or integration missteps, limiting
FOCF and reducing availability under the revolving credit facility.
Alternatively, we could lower the rating if the company's liquidity
narrows without a credible path for improvement.

"Although unlikely over the next year, we could raise the rating if
the company stabilizes revenue declines and improves leverage to
the mid-4x area on a sustained basis, with FOCF to debt above 5%.
Any upgrade would also require a longer-term financial policy
supportive of improved credit metrics."

capital allocation strategies when, and if, determined by our Board
of Directors.  We expect to continue to look for opportunities to

related interest expense.  We may, at any time we deem conditions
favorable, also attempt to improve our liquidity position by
accessing debt or equity markets, including through our
at-the-market offering program, in accordance with our existing

pursue any of these transactions or that we will be successful in
completing them on acceptable terms or at all.  With the

JEFFREY BERGER: Pierces Buying Wibaux Property for $5 Million
-------------------------------------------------------------
Jeffrey W. Berger and Tami M. Berger ask the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
for the District of Montana to authorize the sale of the real
property located in Wibaux County, Montana, together with the
personal property consisting of 26 bale feeders, 8 feed bunks, and
100 bales of straw, to Derik J. Pierce and Tina M. Pierce for
$5,000,000.

The Bank of Colorado holds the only liens on the Real Property
other than property taxes due, and accrued but not due, owing to
Wibaux County, Montana.  It holds a perfected, and the only, lien
on the Personal Property.  The Bank of Colorado does not have a
lien on Section 30 of the Real Property.

The lien holders on the Property are (i) past due property taxes
totaling $7,938 due to the Wibaux County, Montana treasurer; (ii)
accrued but not yet due property tax due to the Wibaux County,
Montana treasurer, estimated to total $3,300, and (iii) Bank of
Colorado, whose claim is currently scheduled at $24,215,775
pursuant to promissory notes originally (x) dated Dec. 30, 2013 as
modified by a Change in Terms Agreement dated March 30, 2016 and as
further modified by a Change in Terms Agreement dated Aug. 24,
2016, and\or (y) a promissory note originally dated Oct. 2, 2015,
and/or (z) a promissory note dated Nov. 25, 2015, all of which are
secured by the mortgages securing the Property and security
interests which secure the Personal Property, and all of which
contain cross-collateralization clauses such that the Property and
Personal Property are collateral for all of the Debtors'
indebtedness to the Bank of Colorado.  The Debtors contend the
remaining collateral held by the Bank of Colorado has a value of
$48,664,550.

The Debtors contend the bale feeders and feed bunks and straw have
a value of $10,000.  

The Debtors entered into a listing contract with Bill Bahny and
Bill Bahny and Associates, pre-petition.  They've filed an
application to approve their employment of Bill Bahny and Bill
Bahny and Associates.  It is in the best interest of the creditors
of the case that the Court approve the sale as described.  The
property being sold is not necessary for their ongoing business
operations.

At the time the case was commenced, the Debtors had received but
had not executed a Buy/Sell Agreement to sell the Real Property and
the Personal Property.

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

     http://bankrupt.com/misc/JEFFREY_BERGER_35_Sales.pdf

The Debtors project the proceeds of sale to be paid as follows: (i)
estimated commissions (6.0%) - $300,000; (ii) past due property tax
- $7,938; (iii) accrued but not due and prorated property taxes
(est.) - $3,300; and (iv) estimated closing costs - $10,400.  The
net sale proceeds is $4,678,362.

The Debtors propose to prorate the net sales proceeds between
themselves and the Bank of Colorado as follows: (i) Bank of
Colorado - $4,243,672; and (ii) the Debtors - $434,690.

The Debtors contend that after sale, the Bank of Colorado will
continue to have perfected liens on real estate and personal
property collateral valued in excess of $48,000,000. The estimated
net sales proceeds to be paid the Bank of Colorado based upon the
proration above, is $4,243,672.  The proration is based on
estimated costs of closing and property taxes; in the event these
estimates are not correct, the sales proceeds at closing to the
Bank of Colorado under the above allocation will not be less than
$4,240,000 nor the distribution to the Debtors be more than
$434,690, without further order of the Court.

LAYNE CHRISTENSEN: Suspends Plan's Duty to File Reports
-------------------------------------------------------
Layne Christensen Company filed a Form 15 with the Securities and
Exchange Commission notifying the termination of registration of
the Company's Capital Accumulation Plan under Section 12(g) of the
Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

Although the duty to file reports under Section 13(a) or 15(d) of
the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended, has been
terminated with respect to the Layne Christensen Company Capital
Accumulation Plan, the duty to file reports under Section 13(a) or
15(d) remains with respect to Layne Christensen Company common
stock, par value $0.01 per share.

The Plan no longer offers Common Stock as an investment option.
Therefore, interests in the Plan no longer require registration.
Accordingly, this Form 15 is being filed solely to suspend the
Plan's duty to file reports under Section 15(d), including on Form
11-K.

                    About Layne Christensen Co.

Layne Christensen Company -- http://www.layne.com/-- is a global
water management and services company, with more than 130 years of
industry experience, providing solutions to address the world's
water, minerals and infrastructure challenges.  The company's
customers include government agencies, investor-owned utilities,
industrial companies, global mining companies, consulting
engineering firms, heavy civil construction contractors, oil and
gas companies, power companies and agribusiness.  Layne Christensen
operates on a geographically dispersed basis, with approximately 72
sales and operations offices located throughout North America,
South America, and through our affiliates in Latin America.  Layne
maintains executive offices at 1800 Hughes Landing Boulevard, Suite
800, The Woodlands, Texas 77380.

Layne Christensen reported a net loss of $52.23 million for the
year ended Jan. 31, 2017, a net loss of $44.80 million for the year
ended Jan. 31, 2016, and a net loss of $109.32 million for the year
ended Jan. 31, 2015.

As of Oct. 31, 2017, Layne Christensen had $389.47 million in total
assets, $335.43 million in total liabilities and $54.03 million in
total equity.

"With respect to our 4.25% Convertible Notes, we have retained
advisors to assist us in evaluating alternatives and raising
capital to refinance or extend our debt to a date beyond October
15, 2019, and eliminate the accelerating maturity provisions of the
8.0% Convertible Notes.  We believe the refinance or extension of
our debt is likely based on current on-going discussions with
existing and new potential lenders, our improving financial
performance and credit quality, and the fact that our stock price
is above the $11.70 conversion price for the 8% Convertible Notes.
Although we believe these refinancing options are viable and
likely, because our plans to refinance or restructure our debt have
not been finalized, and therefore are not in our control (in part,
due to the fact that neither of our Convertible Notes can be
prepaid or have redemption provisions prior to February 2018),
these plans are not considered probable under the new standard.
Consequently, per the standard, these conditions, in the aggregate,
raise substantial doubt about our ability to continue as a going
concern within one year after the date these financial statements
are filed," said the Company in its quarterly report for the period
ended Oct. 31, 2017.


LONG BLOCKCHAIN: Cancels Purchase of Bitcoin Mining Equipment
-------------------------------------------------------------
Long Blockchain Corp. said it will not acquire the 1,000 Antminer
S9 mining rigs and 1,000 APW3++ PSUs pursuant to its previously
announced purchase agreement.

After thoughtful consideration and in consultation with outside
technology advisors, the Company will instead focus its efforts on
seeking to enter into and ultimately consummate its previously
announced proposed merger with Stater Blockchain Limited, a
technology company focused on developing and deploying globally
scalable blockchain technology solutions across the financial
markets, and exploring additional opportunities and strategic
investments across the ancillary blockchain ecosystem.

Shamyl Malik, head of the Company's Blockchain Strategy Committee,
commented, "While we continue to believe in the value of mining
equipment to the blockchain ecosystem, the purchase of these
machines - which was negotiated as a no-risk option to the Company
- was just one of the multiple strategic avenues we have been
considering.  We will continue to evaluate the purchase of mining
equipment for Bitcoin and other digital currencies as part of our
larger blockchain initiative, which includes among other potential
transactions the proposed merger with Stater."

                    About Long Blockchain Corp.

Heaquartered in Hicksville, New York, Long Blockchain Corp.
(formerly Long Island Iced Tea Corp.) is focused on developing and
investing in globally scalable blockchain technology solutions.  It
is dedicated to becoming a significant participant in the evolution
of blockchain technology that creates long term value for its

its flagship brand 'The Original Long Island Brand Iced Tea'.

Long Island Iced Tea incurred a net loss of $10.44 million for the
year ended Dec. 31, 2016, following a net loss of $3.18 million for

had $4.83 million in total assets, $4.21 million in total
liabilities and $622,151 in total stockholders' equity.

"Historically, the Company has financed its operations through the
raising of equity capital 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 the
Company 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 the Company's planned operating
activities.  There are no assurances that the Company will be able
to raise such capital on terms acceptable to the Company or at all.
If the Company is unable to obtain sufficient amounts of
additional capital, it 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," the Company stated in its quarterly report for
the period ended Sept. 30, 2017.

Note, will assign any and all rents from the Property to the Debtor
and the Debtor will provide an assignment of these rents to the

On Jan. 31, 2018, following the Annual Meeting, the Company's board
of directors approved an increase in the size of the Board to seven
people, with the two additional vacancies on the Board being in
Class I, effective immediately before the consummation of the
transactions contemplated by that certain Securities Purchase
Agreement, dated as of Dec. 15, 2017, among the Company and the

consummation of the Transactions, the Board appointed Robert A.
Woods and Yogesh Mago to fill the two vacancies as Class I
directors of the Company, with Messrs. Woods and Mago's terms to
each expire as of its 2020 Annual Meeting of Stockholders.

Mr. Woods will join the Board as Chairman, and will serve on the
Audit Committee of the Board, the Nominating and Corporate
Governance Committee of the Board and the Compensation Committee of
the Board, which he will also chair.  Mr. Woods has more than 50
years of experience in agribusiness and agriculture products. Since
2012, Mr. Woods has served as the Chairman and chief executive
officer of Targeted Growth Inc., a biotechnology firm focused on
improving yield in agronomic crops.  Prior to that, he served as

one director was to be appointed as the Chairman of the Board, one
director was to be appointed as the chair of the Compensation
Committee of the Board, and both Ospraie Directors were to be
appointed to the Nominating and Corporate Governance Committee of
the Board, of which one director would chair. Following their
appointment to the Board, Mr. Mago will continue to provide, and
Mr. Woods will provide, services to Ospraie on a consulting basis.

In consideration of the additional service performed by the
Company's directors beyond their anticipated terms as a result of
the delay in its holding the 2017 Annual Meeting, in addition to
deferment of payment of cash retainers to those directors until
closing of the Transactions, on Jan. 30, 2018, the Compensation
Committee of the Board approved of restricted stock unit awards to
each of our non-employee directors.  Directors Timothy Fogarty,
Richard Rominger, George H. Kerckhove and Zachary S. Wochock, Ph.D.
were each awarded 21,301 restricted stock units (based on $25,000
of equity compensation generally awardable to the Company's
non-employee directors at each annual meeting under our previously
disclosed director compensation policy), of which 8/12ths of the
shares, or 14,201 shares, were fully vested, and the remainder vest
in monthly in four equal increments, subject to the applicable
director's continued service on its Board and acceleration
immediately prior to a change in control event.  In addition,
Michael H. Benoff and Kathleen A. Merrigan, each of whose terms
expired upon the 2017 Annual Meeting, were awarded 14,201 fully
vested restricted stock units.

On Jan. 31, 2018, the Board determined to suspend its previously
disclosed director compensation policy with respect to awards that
would otherwise have been granted to our continuing directors
effective as of the 2017 Annual Meeting and to Messrs. Woods and
Mago as newly appointed directors, with compensation decisions for
Board members deferred at the present time.

On Jan. 31, 2018, Timothy Fogarty delivered a letter tendering his
resignation from the Board, effective immediately after the
consummation of the Transactions.  Mr. Fogarty's decision to resign
did not involve any disagreement with the Company on any matter
relating to the Company's operations, policies or practices.  The
unvested restricted stock units granted to Mr. Fogarty on Jan. 30,
2018 will cease vesting effective upon his resignation.

As previously disclosed, on Jan. 2, 2018, the Company received
written notice from the Listing Qualifications Department of Nasdaq
indicating that the Company was not in compliance with the rules
for continued listing set forth in Nasdaq Listing Rule 5620(a)
because the Company has not yet held an annual meeting of
shareholders within twelve months of the end of the Company's 2016
fiscal year end.  As a result of the Company holding the 2017
Annual Meeting on Jan. 31, 2018, the Company has regained
compliance with Nasdaq Listing Rule 5620(a).

NEOVASC INC: Gets German NUB Status 1 Designation for Reducer
-------------------------------------------------------------
ovasc, Inc., announced that the "Institut fur das Entgeltsystem im
Krankenhaus" ("InEk"), the German Institute for the Hospital
Remuneration System, has awarded its Neovasc Reducer, a CE-Marked
medical device for the treatment of refractory angina, NUB status 1
designation for 2018.

InEK, is responsible for prioritizing new therapies in Germany
through the NUB process.  On Jan. 31, 2018, InEK upgraded the
status of the Neovasc Reducer from status 4 to status 1 - the
highest priority designation available.

A NUB decision is valid for one year and can be renewed annually.
The NUB process opens the path for negotiations between hospitals
and health insurances on the reimbursement of new medical
treatments in the German system.  Based on the new NUB status 1 for
the Neovasc Reducer, 107 German hospitals can now negotiate
reimbursement coverage for the Neovasc Reducer therapy under the
German health insurance system.

Fred Colen, CEO of Neovasc commented, "This significant upgrade to
the highest level in the German NUB status is an exciting
development for the Reducer therapy in Europe.  For many patients
Angina remains a significant issue and many of them have limited
treatment options today.  This positive NUB development will allow
additional patients suffering from refractory angina to be treated
with the Reducer in Germany."

                         About Reducer

The Reducer is CE-marked in the European Union for the treatment of
refractory angina, a painful and debilitating condition that occurs
when the coronary arteries deliver an inadequate supply of blood to
the heart muscle, despite treatment with standard revascularization
or cardiac drug therapies.  It affects millions of patients
worldwide, who typically lead severely restricted lives as a result
of their disabling symptoms, and its incidence is growing.  The
Reducer provides relief of angina symptoms by altering blood flow
in the heart's circulatory system, thereby increasing the perfusion
of oxygenated blood to ischemic areas of the heart muscle.
Placement of the Reducer is performed using a minimally invasive
transvenous procedure that is similar to implanting a coronary
stent and is completed in approximately 20 minutes.

expenses and differentials) coming in lower than our previous
guidance," commented Northern’s Interim President, Brandon
Elliott.  "The strong end to 2017 demonstrates the effectiveness of
our focus on capital allocation and the advantages of the
non-operating business model.  Our production has returned to
levels not seen since the first quarter of 2015 and we have
achieved this production with capital spending levels that were 71%
lower in 2017 compared to 2014.  We are looking forward to the
momentum that our capital allocation process has helped build
continuing in 2018."

Capital Expenditures & Drilling Activity

Northern saw a pick-up of activity and completions within its core
acreage during 2017 resulting in 7.1 net wells added to production
during the fourth quarter, bringing year-to-date well additions to
16.9 net wells.  Higher activity levels in the core also resulted
in a 4.9 net well increase of wells in process compared to year-end
2016, with total wells in process equaling 18.3 net wells at
year-end 2017.  The combination of more wells in process and more
wells added to production than originally anticipated resulted in
total capital expenditures incurred of $57.3 million for the fourth
quarter and $156.0 million for 2017.

NORTHERN OIL: Will Swap $497M Unsecured Notes for New Notes & Stock
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Northern Oil and Gas, Inc., announced that it has entered into a
privately negotiated exchange agreement with certain holders of its
8% senior unsecured notes due 2020.

Highlights of the Transaction

   * Approximately $497 million of existing senior unsecured notes
     to be exchanged (subject to satisfaction of certain
     conditions) for (i) approximately $344 million of senior
     secured notes due 2023 and (ii) approximately $155 million of
     Northern's common stock at $3.00 per share (subject to
     adjustment)

   * Northern required to raise an additional $156 million in new
     equity, of which up to $78 million can be raised through the
     contribution of additional properties in the Williston Basin

   * Of the $78 million of new equity required to be raised in
     cash, $40 million of new equity is already committed as of
     Feb. 1, 2018 at $3.00 per share (subject to adjustment) by
     TRT Holdings, Inc., Bahram Akradi, Michael Reger, and certain

     other investors

   * The exchange will reduce debt by $155 million, resulting in
     approximately $597 million of net debt as of Dec. 31, 2017,
     pro forma for the transactions contemplated by the exchange
     agreement (assuming the full equity raise described above is
     raised in cash)

In connection with the transaction, Northern announced that current
lead director Bahram Akradi has been appointed Chairman of the
Board of Directors.  In addition, Michael Reger has agreed in his
role as Chairman Emeritus to serve as an advisor to the Board in
connection with the equity raise and potential acquisitions.  The
company also announced that it has accepted the resignation of
Thomas Stoelk, Northern's previous interim chief executive officer
and chief financial officer.  In connection therewith, Brandon
Elliott has been appointed interim president in addition to his
current role as EVP, corporate development and strategy, and Chad
Allen has been appointed interim chief financial officer in
addition to his current role as chief accounting officer.

Bahram Akradi, Northern's Chairman, commented, "The exchange
agreement with our bondholders is a significant step to allow us to
advance the execution of our growth strategy.  Northern already has
an excellent liquidity position and is experiencing exceptional
operational results.  With the added benefit of the transactions
contemplated by the exchange agreement, we expect to accelerate our
growth strategy as the natural consolidator and clearing house of
non-operated working interest in the Williston Basin.  I am
incredibly excited about Northern's future and look forward to
continuing my work with the team.  This team has done a phenomenal
job, as evidenced by the outstanding preliminary fourth quarter
results that are also being announced by the Company today."

Exchange Agreement

Under the terms of the exchange agreement, Northern has agreed to
exchange approximately $497 million aggregate principal amount of
its 8% senior unsecured notes due 2020 for a combination of
approximately $344 million aggregate principal amount of second
lien senior secured notes due 2023 and approximately $155 million
of Northern's common stock.  The New Notes are expected to mature
on April 30, 2023.  The New Notes will bear cash interest at a rate
of 8.5% per annum, and additional interest at a rate of 1% per
annum that is payable in kind (PIK), provided that the PIK interest
shall cease to accrue if Northern achieves specified total
debt-to-EBITDAX metrics.  The New Notes will be secured by second
priority lien security interests in substantially the same
collateral that secures Northern's obligations under its $400
million first lien credit facility with TPG Sixth Street Partners.

Closing under the exchange agreement is conditioned upon, among
other things, (i) shareholder approval of the issuance of common
stock in the exchange and the equity raise, (ii) the
reincorporation of Northern in the State of Delaware (from
Minnesota), (iii) consent of the lenders under the First Lien
Facility and (iv) definitive documentation for the New Notes.
Closing under the exchange agreement is also conditioned on
Northern raising $156 million of additional equity in the form of
(i) cash contributions from the sale of equity and/or (ii)
additional assets acquired by Northern in exchange for equity
(limited to 50% of the total equity raise).  The price of the
common stock to be issued in the exchange and the equity raise is
targeted for $3.00 per share.

Contemporaneously with the execution of the exchange agreement,
Northern received equity commitments totaling $40 million of the
equity raise at a price of $3.00 per share (subject to adjustment)
from certain investors, including TRT Holdings, Inc. (the company's
largest shareholder and largest noteholder, who also agreed to
exchange all of its Existing Notes pursuant to the exchange
agreement), Bahram Akradi (the company's Chairman), and Michael
Reger (the company's founder and Chairman Emeritus).  These equity
commitments are conditioned upon, among other things, closing of
the transactions under the exchange agreement.

Evercore is serving as financial advisor to Northern Oil and Gas,
Inc. and Jones Day is acting as legal counsel.

ON ASSIGNMENT: S&P Affirms 'BB' CCR Amid ECS Federal Transaction
----------------------------------------------------------------
U.S.-based staffing company On Assignment Inc. has announced that
it will acquire ECS Federal LLC, a federal IT staffing provider,
for $775 million. The company will borrow under a $1.6 billion
credit agreement, comprising a $1.4 billion term loan and a $200
million revolving credit facility, to fund the acquisition and pay
related fees and expenses.

S&P Global Ratings affirmed its 'BB' corporate credit rating on
U.S.-based On Assignment Inc. The rating outlook is stable.

S&P said, "At the same time, we affirmed our 'BB' issue-level
rating on the company's $594 million senior secured term loan due
June 2022. The '3' recovery rating is unchanged, indicating our
expectation for meaningful (50%-70%; rounded estimate: 50%)
recovery in the event of a payment default."

S&P related, "The affirmation reflects our expectation that On
Assignment's adjusted leverage, pro forma for the debt-funded
acquisition, will increase to the high-3x area from 2.2x as of
Sept. 30, 2017, but will decline subsequently due to EBITDA growth,
good cash flow conversion and debt repayment. Furthermore,
we believe the ECS Federal LLC acquisition will provide additional
business stability and end market diversity. With its Creative
Circle acquisition in 2015, On Assignment has exhibited a good
track record of integrating acquisitions and deleveraging, and we
believe it will use a similar strategy to deleverage.

"The stable outlook reflects our expectation that following the ECS
acquisition On Assignment's leverage will decline to mid-3x area
over next 12 months and to below 3x by the second half of 2019. We
don't expect the company to make any share buybacks or
distributions to shareholders.

"We could lower the corporate credit rating if we believe the
company's leverage will remain above 3.25x for a prolonged period.
This could occur if the company faces operating challenges that
result in revenue declines or increased costs from integration
challenges or competitive pressures, or if the company prioritizes
shareholder-friendly initiatives such as share buybacks, dividends,
or debt-funded acquisitions over deleveraging.

"We could raise the rating over the next 12 months if the company
reduces leverage below 2.25x and we expect the leverage will stay
below these levels on a sustained basis."


ONCOBIOLOGICS INC: Falls Short of Nasdaq's Market Value Rule
------------------------------------------------------------
Oncobiologics, Inc., has received a written notification from the
Nasdaq indicating that as of June 28, 2017, the Company did not
meet the $50,000,000 minimum market value of listed securities
required to maintain continued listing as set forth in Nasdaq
Marketplace Rule 5450(b)(2)(A), and that as of June 28, 2017, the
Company did not meet the alternative continued listing standards
based on minimum stockholders' equity or total assets/total
revenue.  The notification has no immediate effect on the listing
of the Company's common stock on the Nasdaq Global Market.

Under Nasdaq Rules, the Company will have 180 calendar days from
the date of the notification to regain compliance by meeting the
continued listing requirement, namely the market value of listed
securities closes at $50,000,000 or more for a minimum of 10
consecutive business days.  If the Company is unable to regain
compliance during the 180-day period, and the Company receives a
delisting determination from Nasdaq, the Company may, at that time,
request a hearing to remain on the Nasdaq Global Market, which
request will ordinarily suspend such delisting determination until
a decision by Nasdaq subsequent to the hearing.

There can be no assurance that the Company will be successful in
regaining compliance with the continued listing requirements and
maintaining its listing of the Company's common stock on the Nasdaq
Global Market.

PETROQUEST ENERGY: Completes Sale of Gulf of Mexico Assets
----------------------------------------------------------
PetroQuest Energy, Inc., announced the sale of its Gulf of Mexico
properties on Jan. 31, 2018, but effective as of Dec. 1, 2017.  As
a result of the sale, the Company has eliminated an approximate
$35.4 million undiscounted abandonment liability from its long-term
obligations.  The Company received no proceeds from the sale of
these properties and is required to contribute $3.75 million
towards future abandonment costs.  In connection with the sale, the
Company expects to receive a cash refund of approximately $10.3
million related to a depositary account that served to
collateralize a portion of the Company's offshore bonds.  All of
the Company's production is now derived from assets located onshore
Louisiana and Texas.

During the fourth quarter of 2017, the Sold Assets produced
approximately 26.1 MMcfe/d (21% oil, 75% gas, 4% NGL).  Production
from the Sold Assets has declined over the last 60 days as a result
of natural declines.  The Company estimates net daily production
for January 2018 to be approximately 13.8 MMcfe/d (24% oil, 71% gas
and 5% NGL), or 47% below the fourth quarter 2017 rate.

As of Dec. 31, 2017, the Company's estimated proved reserves
attributable to the Sold Assets totaled approximately 11 Bcfe (100%
proved developed) with estimated pre-tax discounted future net cash
flows (PV-10) of approximately ($2.4) million, using SEC pricing
($2.98/Mcf for natural gas and $51.34/Bbl for oil).

Including the Sold Assets, the Company estimates that its 2017
production was approximately 27.6 Bcfe, or 75.6 MMcfe per day.
Estimated fourth quarter 2017 production, including the Sold
Assets, totaled approximately 8.6 Bcfe, or 93.7 MMcfe per day,
compared to guidance of 91-95 MMcfe/d.  Estimated production for
2017 was 17% higher than 2016 and estimated fourth quarter 2017
production was 87% higher than the year-ago quarter.

Based upon estimated 2017 production, the Company estimates that it
achieved a 247% reserve replacement ratio during 2017 and expects
that its all-in finding and development costs during 2017 to be
approximately $0.70/Mcfe.

The Company expects to provide first quarter 2018 guidance metrics
and 2018 capital expenditure guidance and plans in connection with
its 2017 year-end earnings release in early March 2018.

Management's Comment

"After completing the sale of our Gulf of Mexico properties, we
have eliminated a considerable long-term abandonment liability and
have substantially reduced our exposure to future regulatory,
environmental, surety and weather risks inherent in offshore
operations.  In addition, the sale will increase our net liquidity
by $6.5 million and allow us to focus our attention on developing
our onshore assets in East Texas and in the Louisiana Austin Chalk
trend," said Charles T. Goodson, chairman, chief executive officer
and president.  "While our production and reserve profiles will
experience near-term reductions after this divestiture, we believe
that this transaction will ultimately drive value creation."

QUALITY CARE: Balks at HCR ManorCare Bid to Dismiss Receivership
----------------------------------------------------------------
Quality Care Properties, Inc., intends to continue to pursue a
receivership complaint against HCR ManorCare, QCP disclosed in a
Form 8-K filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

On August 17, 2017, QCP filed a complaint in Superior Court of the
State of California for the County of Los Angeles against its
principal tenant, HCR III Healthcare, LLC, and its parent, HCR
ManorCare, Inc., seeking the appointment of an independent receiver
for QCP's skilled nursing and assisted living/memory care
facilities.

QCP most recently extended the deadline for HCR ManorCare's
response to QCP's receivership complaint to January 26, 2018.

On January 26, HCR ManorCare responded to the complaint by filing a
motion to dismiss certain claims in the receivership complaint.

"QCP intends to pursue available judicial paths, will object to HCR
ManorCare's request for dismissal of the receivership action and
will continue to pursue the receivership complaint," the Company
said on January 30, 2018.

QCP noted that HCR ManorCare continues to be in default under the
Master Lease and Security Agreement, dated as of April 7, 2011, as
amended and supplemented, and the Guaranty of Obligations effective
as of February 11, 2013, with respect to obligations under the
Master Lease.  Furthermore, HCR ManorCare has failed to pay the
Reduced Cash Rent amount of $14 million due on January 25, 2018
under the Master Lease.

                         Forbearance Deal

On April 5, 2017, QCP entered into a forbearance agreement with HCR
III and HCRMC -- together, "HCR ManorCare".  Among other things,
the Agreement required HCR ManorCare to make cash rent payments of
$32 million for each of April, May and June of 2017, with a
deferral of payment of the additional $7.5 million per month
otherwise due until the earlier of (i) July 5, 2017 and (ii) an
early termination of the Agreement, with all deferred amounts
becoming immediately due and payable upon an early termination.
The Agreement also required HCR ManorCare to deliver its 2016
audited financial statements and auditor consent to QCP not later
than April 10, 2017, which were received on April 10, 2017 and
included a "going concern" exception for HCR ManorCare in the
auditor opinion.

During the term of the Agreement, QCP also agreed to provide HCR
ManorCare with a temporary secured extension of credit of up to $7
million per month during each of April, May and June of 2017 (up to
$21 million in the aggregate), which would be due and payable in
full not later than December 31, 2017, subject to acceleration upon
certain events.

HCR ManorCare made the reduced cash rent payments of $32 million
for each of April and May of 2017. HCR ManorCare borrowed $7
million for April 2017 under the temporary secured credit
agreement.

On June 2, 2017, QCP received $15 million from HCR ManorCare,
constituting $8 million of rent and repayment of the $7 million
secured loan extended pursuant to the Agreement, rather than the
full $32 million in rent required to be paid for June 2017 under
the terms of the Agreement.

In a Form 10-Q quarterly report filed in November, QCR said HCR
ManorCare is required to pay approximately $39.5 million in monthly
rent under the parties' Master Lease.

On July 7, 2017, QCP received approximately $8.2 million from HCR
ManorCare.  On July 7, QCP delivered a notice of default under the
Master Lease relating to nonpayment of rent due and other matters.
The notice of default demanded payment of all current and past due
rent, totaling approximately $79.6 million,  by the end of the day
on July 14, 2017.  The amount was not paid, and therefore, an Event
of Default exists under the Master Lease, requiring the immediate
payment of an additional approximately $265 million of Tranche B
DRO and permitting the QCP lessors to terminate the Master Lease,
appoint receivers or exercise other remedies with respect to any
and all leased properties. On  August 3, 2017, QCP received
approximately $23.0 million in rent from HCR ManorCare.

On September 25, October 19 and November 2, 2017, QCP announced
that it had agreed with HCR ManorCare to extend the deadline for
HCR ManorCare's response to QCP's receivership complaint to October
18, November 1 and December 1, 2017, respectively, in each case
subject to Court approval (which was granted), to allow for the
continuation of workout discussions, including with respect to the
sale or re-leasing of any of the HCRMC Properties. HCR ManorCare
continues to be in default under the Master Lease. HCR ManorCare
paid approximately $17.6 million and $21.0 million in rent for
September and October 2017, respectively. Over $446 million in rent
and other obligations continue to be immediately due and payable
under the Master Lease.

As of June 30, 2017, in connection with management's belief that an
Event of Default was imminent and the closing of QCP's fiscal
quarter, the Company expected to have the ability to sell or
re-lease any HCRMC Property unencumbered by the Master Lease. This
resulted in a reduction in the expected holding period of certain
facilities, which resulted in an impairment charge of $382.0
million during the second quarter of 2017.  As of September 30,
2017, the Company determined there was a reduction in the expected
holding period of certain additional facilities, which resulted in
an impairment charge of $9.9 million during the third quarter of
2017.

QCP said in its quarterly report that it incurred legal, advisory
and diligence costs related to its restructuring and workout
discussions with HCRMC totaling $5.5 million and $13.4 million
during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017,
respectively.

The Company also recognized HCRMC rental and related revenues
totaling $48.9 million and $116.4 million for the three months
ended September 30, 2017 and 2016, respectively, and $226.2 million
and $345.8 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 and
2016, respectively.

hospital and a medical office building as of October 20, 2017.

QCP was formed in 2016 to hold:

     * the HCR ManorCare, Inc. portfolio,
     * 28 other healthcare related properties,
     * a deferred rent obligation due from HCRMC under a master
       lease agreement -- Tranche B DRO; and
     * an equity method investment in HCRMC previously held by
       HCP, Inc.

QCP was a wholly owned subsidiary of HCP.  It was separated from
HCP, effective October 31, 2016.

At Sept. 30, 2017, QCP had total assets of $4,464,183,000 against
total liabilities of $1,804,133,000.

                           *     *     *

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on Oct. 24, 2017,
Moody's Investors Service confirmed QCP's ratings, including its
Caa1 corporate family rating (CFR) following QCP's announcement
that the REIT's work-out discussions with its struggling tenant,
HCR Manorcare, Inc. (HCR, unrated), are continuing.  Moody's said
the continued discussions indicate that both QCP and HCR are
pursuing an out-of-court resolution, a welcome development for QCP
from a credit perspective.

As reported by the TCR on Dec. 20, 2017, S&P Global Ratings lowered
its corporate credit rating on QCP to 'CCC' from 'B-' after the
company announced it would extend the deadline to negotiate with
HCR ManorCare until Jan. 15, 2018, with no amendment or waiver
reached on the covenant under its credit facilities.  HCR's
operating performance has weakened significantly, limiting the
company's ability to pay rent sufficient enough to alleviate a
covenant breach. According to S&P's projections, the debt service
coverage covenant (DSC) could be breached as early as the first or
second quarter of 2018.

REAL ALLOY: Noteholders Intend to Serve as "Stalking Horse" Bidder
------------------------------------------------------------------
Real Alloy Holding, Inc., on Feb. 5, 2018, disclosed that the
Company received multiple bids to acquire all of Real Alloy's
operations in advance of the previously announced court-approved
deadline of January 31, 2018.

A group of the Company's noteholders, which in conjunction with
Bank of America provided the existing Real Alloy
debtor-in-possession facility, intend to serve as the "stalking
horse" bidder in the court-supervised sale process.  These
noteholders, who are very familiar with the Company's operations,
have expressed strong interest in operating both the North American
and European business units.  The noteholder group is comprised of
large, sophisticated U.S. based investors.  In addition to the
noteholders' indication, the Company also received multiple cash
bids for the business.  However, the noteholders illustrated their
commitment to and belief in the Company by stating that they are
making a credit bid that is substantially higher than any of the
cash bids received, and designed to preserve and maximize the value
of the business.

As the stalking horse bid in the sale process, the noteholder group
bid will be subject to higher and better bids.  The deadline to
submit qualified bids is March 19, 2018.  Currently, an auction is
scheduled to take place on March 27, 2018, and a hearing to approve
a sale is scheduled for March 29, 2018.  This schedule is designed
to facilitate an efficient and highly competitive sale process that
maximizes value for all Real Alloy stakeholders.

Throughout the process, Real Alloy expects its operations to
continue uninterrupted in the ordinary course of business and
expects to continue to meet its day-to-day obligations to its
employees, suppliers of goods and services and customers.  During
the first quarter, Real Alloy has continued to work on additional
contracts for 2018 production with several longstanding customers.

                      Management Comments

Terry Hogan, President of Real Alloy, stated, "We are pleased to
have the continued support of our noteholders and to have received
numerous bids during the stalking horse phase of the sales process.
We look forward to working through the milestones in our financial
restructuring and completing an orderly sale of the business to
maximize value as planned.  By the beginning of May, we expect to
have new ownership in place that supports our business, customers,
suppliers, and employees."

All percentages are based on the Issuer's 10,236,855 shares of
Common Stock, outstanding as of Jan. 29, 2018, based on information
from the Issuer and other publicly available information.

As previously disclosed, on Dec. 19, 2017, SAExploration entered
into a restructuring support agreement with the BlueMountain Funds
and other holders that beneficially owned in excess of 85% in
principal amount of the Issuer's 10.000% Senior Secured Second Lien
Notes due 2019, pursuant to which the Issuer agreed to commence an
exchange offer to exchange the Second Lien Notes for a combination
of the Issuer's common stock, convertible preferred stock and
warrants and the 2017 Supporting Holders agreed to tender all of
their Second Lien Notes in the Exchange Offer.

On Jan. 29, 2018, the Exchange Offer was completed, and in exchange
for $18,577,026 aggregate principal amount of Second Lien Notes
tendered by the BlueMountain Funds, the Issuer issued to the
BlueMountain Funds an aggregate of 8,067 shares of the Issuer's
Series A perpetual convertible preferred stock, 217,823 shares of
the Issuer's Series B convertible preferred stock and 2,317,413
Series C Warrants of the Issuer to purchase shares of Common
Stock.

Following the third anniversary of the closing of the Exchange
Offer, the Series A Preferred Stock is convertible into shares of
Common Stock at the option of the Issuer or at the option of each
holder of Series A Preferred Stock.  Prior to the third anniversary
of the closing of the Exchange Offer, the Series A Preferred Stock
may be converted into shares of Common Stock with the consent of
the holders of at least 66 2/3% of the outstanding shares of Series
A Preferred Stock, or upon a change of control of the Issuer.  The
initial conversion rate for the Series A Preferred Stock is
3,271.4653 shares of Common Stock per share of Series A Preferred
Stock, subject to adjustment.  At all times a holder of Series A
Preferred Stock, who is not a beneficial owner of 10% or more of
the outstanding Common Stock, may convert the Series A Preferred
Stock only up to that number of shares of Series A Preferred Stock
so that, upon conversion, the aggregate beneficial ownership of
Common Stock of such holder and all persons affiliated with such
holder, is not more than 9.99% of Common Stock then outstanding
(other than in connection with a change of control of the Issuer).

Following the Issuer's receipt of shareholder approval for the
issuance of additional shares of Common Stock, the Series B
Preferred Stock will automatically convert into shares of Common
Stock and/or Series C Warrants, at the holder's option.  Each share
of Series B Preferred Stock is mandatorily convertible into 21.7378
shares of Common Stock and/or Series C Warrants.

Each Series C Warrant is immediately exercisable by the holder for
one share of Common Stock at a price equal to $0.0001.  The Series
C Warrants are also exercisable at the option of the Issuer in
connection with a full redemption of the Series A Preferred Stock
or upon a change of control of the Issuer.  At all times a holder
of Series C Warrants, who is not a beneficial owner of 10% or more
of the outstanding Common Stock, may exercise only up to that
number of Series C Warrants so that, upon exercise, the aggregate
beneficial ownership of Common Stock of such holder and all persons
affiliated with such holder, is not more than 9.99% of Common Stock
then outstanding (other than in connection with a change of control
of the Issuer).

with the success of our exchange offer in which more than 90% of
our outstanding Existing Notes were exchanged.  We have
comprehensively realigned our entire capital structure, which will
enhance our immediate liquidity by eliminating approximately $7.8
million of annual cash interest payments, provide meaningful
financial flexibility through our new $20.0 million senior credit
facility, and make us more competitive in the current business
environment.  Most importantly, we believe this exchange will
position us for long-term growth and sustainable success.  We are
grateful for the continued support and confidence of all our
stakeholders, especially that of our former note holders who
participated in the exchange, our customers and vendors, and our
loyal and highly-skilled employees, all of whom have gone to great
lengths to find solutions to solidify SAE's future."

New York City time, on Jan. 24, 2018.  In exchange for $78,037,389

                     About Sears Holdings

Based in Hoffman Estates, Illinois, Sears Holdings Corporation
(NASDAQ: SHLD) -- http://www.searsholdings.com/-- is an integrated
retailer focused on seamlessly connecting the digital and physical
shopping experiences to serve its members.  Sears Holdings is home
to Shop Your Way, a social shopping platform offering members
rewards for shopping at Sears and Kmart, as well as with other
retail partners across categories important to them.  The Company
operates through its subsidiaries, including Sears, Roebuck and Co.
and Kmart Corporation, with full-line and specialty retail stores
across the United States.

Sears Holdings reported a net loss of $2.22 billion in 2016, a net
loss of $1.12 billion in 2015 and a net loss of $1.81 billion in
2014.  As of Oct. 28, 2017, Sears Holdings had $8.19 billion in
total assets, $12.20 billion in total liabilities and a total
deficit of $4 billion.

                          *     *     *

As reported by the TCR on Jan. 25, 2018, Fitch Ratings has
downgraded the Long-Term Issuer Default Ratings (IDRs) on Sears
Holdings Corporation, Sears Roebuck Acceptance Corp. (SRAC) and
Kmart Corporation to 'C' from 'CC' following the company's
announcement that it has commenced an exchange of various tranches
of debt held at these entities.  Fitch also downgraded the
second-lien secured notes of Holdings to 'CC'/'RR3' from
'CCC+'/'RR1'.

The TCR also reported on Jan. 26, 2018, that S&P Global Ratings
lowered its corporate credit rating on Sears Holdings Corp. to 'CC'
from 'CCC-'.  The downgrade follows Sears' announced offer to
exchange some of its notes (8% senior unsecured notes due 2019 and
the 6.625% senior secured notes due 2018) and amend the terms of
its credit agreement for its second-lien term loan. S&P said, "We
would treat the proposed transactions, if completed, as tantamount
to a default.  We base this on our view that the PIK option and
maturity extension differs from the original promise on the debt
issues and represents a distressed exchange under our criteria."

In January 2018, Moody's Investors Service downgraded Sears
Holdings Corp.'s Corporate Family Rating to Ca from Caa3.  Sears'
Ca rating reflects the company's announced pursuit of debt
exchanges to extend maturities and its sizable operating losses -
Domestic Adjusted EBITDA (as defined by Sears) was an estimated
loss of approximately $625 million for the LTM period ending
Oct. 28, 2017.


SEARS HOLDINGS: Obtains $210 Million in Financing from JPP Lenders
------------------------------------------------------------------
Sears Holdings Corporation, through Sears Roebuck Acceptance Corp.
and Kmart Corporation, entities wholly-owned and controlled,
directly or indirectly by the Company, entered into a term loan
credit agreement on Jan. 4, 2018, providing for a secured term loan
facility from JPP, LLC and JPP II, LLC, as lenders, with JPP, LLC,
serving as administrative and collateral agent.  Mr. Edward S.
Lampert, the Company's chief executive officer and Chairman, is the
sole stockholder, chief executive officer and director of ESL
Investments, Inc., which controls JPP, LLC and JPP II, LLC.

One hundred million was borrowed from the Initial Lenders under the
Term Loan Facility on Jan. 4, 2018 and an additional $30 million
was borrowed from the Initial Lenders under the Term Loan Facility
on Jan. 19, 2018.

On Jan. 29, 2018, the Company, the Borrowers, the Initial Lenders,
certain other lenders and the Agent entered into an Amendment to
the Term Loan Credit Agreement, pursuant to which an additional $20
million was borrowed from the Initial Lenders and a further $60
million was borrowed from certain unaffiliated lenders, bringing
the total amount borrowed under the Term Loan Facility to date to
$210 million.  The Amendment, among other changes, separates the
loans under the Term Loan Facility into two tranches.

The Term Loan Facility is guaranteed by the Company and certain of
its subsidiaries that guarantee the Company's other material debt
or own material intellectual property.  The Term Loan Facility is
secured by substantially all of the unencumbered intellectual
property of the Company and its subsidiaries, other than
intellectual property relating to the Kenmore and DieHard brands,
as well as by certain real property interests, in each case subject
to certain exclusions.

The Term Loan Facility contains an uncommitted incremental loan
feature that, subject to the satisfaction of certain conditions,
including the consent of the Agent, would permit up to an
additional $90 million to be borrowed and secured by the same
collateral as the existing loan under the Term Loan Facility.

The loans under the Term Loan Facility bear interest at a weighted
average annual interest rate of LIBOR plus 12.5%, which during the
first year must be paid in kind by capitalizing interest.  The
loans under the Term Loan Facility mature on July 20, 2020.  The
Company expects to use the proceeds of the Term Loan Facility for
general corporate purposes, including the repayment of loans under
its ABL credit facility.

No upfront or arrangement fees were paid in connection with the
Term Loan Facility.  The loans under the Term Loan Facility are

As reported by the TCR on Jan. 25, 2018, Fitch Ratings has
downgraded the Long-Term Issuer Default Ratings (IDRs) on Sears
Holdings Corporation, Sears Roebuck Acceptance Corp. (SRAC) and
Kmart Corporation to 'C' from 'CC' following the company's
announcement that it has commenced an exchange of various tranches
of debt held at these entities.  Fitch also downgraded the
second-lien secured notes of Holdings to 'CC'/'RR3' from
'CCC+'/'RR1'.

The TCR also reported on Jan. 26, 2018, that S&P Global Ratings
lowered its corporate credit rating on Sears Holdings Corp. to 'CC'
from 'CCC-'.  The downgrade follows Sears' announced offer to
exchange some of its notes (8% senior unsecured notes due 2019 and
the 6.625% senior secured notes due 2018) and amend the terms of
its credit agreement for its second-lien term loan. S&P said, "We
would treat the proposed transactions, if completed, as tantamount
to a default.  We base this on our view that the PIK option and
maturity extension differs from the original promise on the debt
issues and represents a distressed exchange under our criteria."

In January 2018, Moody's Investors Service downgraded Sears
Holdings Corp.'s Corporate Family Rating to 'Ca' from 'Caa3'.
Sears' 'Ca' rating reflects the company's announced pursuit of debt
exchanges to extend maturities and its sizable operating losses -
Domestic Adjusted EBITDA (as defined by Sears) was an estimated
loss of approximately $625 million for the LTM period ending Oct.
28, 2017.

that it affirmed its 'CCC+' corporate credit and senior secured
issue-level ratings on Southcross Energy Partners L.P.  The outlook

realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the
normal course of business," stated the Company in the Annual
Report.

VITTORIO LARACCA: Palmieri Buying Chadwick Beach Property for $520K
-------------------------------------------------------------------
Vittorio Laracca asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of
New Jersey to authorize the sale of real property located at 311
Ormond Drive, Chadwick Beach, New Jersey to James Palmieri for
$520,000, subject to overbid.

A hearing on the Motion is set for Feb. 27, 2018 at 10:00 a.m.

On June 27, 2008, V. & V. Supermarkets, Inc. and Oliva Supermarket,
LLC entered into a loan agreement with Mariner's Bank in the
principal amount of $850,000.  The First Mariner's Loan was used to
refinance an existing $500,000 loan from Nara Bank and provide
working capital to V&V and Oliva.

The Debtor and his wife, Josephine Laracca, personally guaranteed
the First Mariner's Loan.  In addition to the Personal Guarantees,
the First Mariner's Loan is secured by the following collateral:
(i) a first mortgage lien on the Property; (ii) a first mortgage
lien on the real property located at 129 Troy Road, Parsippany New
Jersey; (iii) a second mortgage lien on the real property located
at 145 Troy Road, Parsippany, New Jersey; (iv) an Absolute
Assignment of Leases and Rents on the each of the referenced
properties; and (v) a security interest in all the business assets
of the V&V and Oliva.

On Dec. 17, 2012, RL Market I, LLC entered into a loan agreement
with Mariner's in the principal amount of $400,000.  The Second
Mariner’s Loan was guaranteed by V&V and personally guaranteed by
Josephine Laracca, Roberto Laracca, Oliva, and the Debtor.  The
Second Mariner's Loan is secured by the following real estate: (i)
a first mortgage lien on the 129 Troy Property; (ii) a second
mortgage lien on the Chadwick Property; (iii) a third mortgage lien
on the 145 Troy Property; (iv) an Absolute Assignment of Leases and
Rents on the each of the referenced properties; and (v) a security
interest in all the business assets of RL Markets.

The remaining debt owed on the First Mariner's Loan is
approximately $474,068.  The remaining debt on the Second Mariner's
Loan is approximately $330,541.  Any and all proceeds from the
sale, after the payment of normal closing costs and any outstanding
real estate taxes, will be used to partially satisfy the Mariner's
Loans.

After careful consideration of all of the facts, the Debtor entered
into an Agreement of Sale with the Purchaser to purchase the
Property for a total amount of $520,000.  The Property will be sold
to the Purchaser free and clear of all existing liens, claims and
encumbrances.  The closing on the sale of the Property will take
place within 14 days of the entry of an order approving the within
sale.  The Purchaser of the Property is the Debtor's son-in-law.
The Debtor and the Purchaser, however, are acting in good faith and
negotiated an arms'-length sale.

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

    http://bankrupt.com/misc/Vittorio_Laracca_44_Sales.pdf

In the present matter, there is a sound business justification for
the sale of the Property.  The sale will allow him to significantly
satisfy the secured claims by Mariner's.  It is likely that the
Debtor will be able to pay the First Mariner's Loan in full and
part of the Second Mariner's Loan.

The Debtor will accept all higher and better offers for each of the
Property on the date of the hearing set by the Court on the within
Motion.  All interested bidders must attend the sale hearing and
notify the Debtor's counsel of their intent to bid at the sale
hearing no later than seven days prior to the date set by the Court
for the hearing.  All higher and better offers must be in $5,000
increments.  The Bidders will be subject to the same terms and
conditions as the Purchaser as set forth in the Agreement of Sale.

The Debtor asks the Court to waive the stay requirements under Rule
6004(h) in connection with the sale of the Property.  The Agreement
of Sale provides that closing of title will take place within 14
days from the date of the Court's approval of the sale.  The Debtor
has waited for an extended period of time to finalize the within
sale transaction and would like to close as soon as possible.
Waiving the 14-day stay under Bankruptcy Rule 6004(h) is therefore
necessary.

The Purchaser:

          James Palmieri
          P.O. Box 1006
          North Wales, PA 19454

                     About Vittorio Laracca

Vittorio Laracca filed a voluntary petition under chapter 13 of
title 11 of the Bankruptcy Code on Oct. 31, 2017.  On Nov. 14,
2017, the Debtor filed his Schedules and Statement of Financial
Affairs.  He also simultaneously filed his Chapter 13 Plan.

On Dec 26, 2017, the Debtor filed his conversion motion.  Judge
Gambardella entered an Order converting the Debtor's case to
chapter 11 and transferring the case to the Hon. Vincent F. Papalia
(Bankr. D.N.J. Case No. 17-32180) on Jan. 16, 2018.


WEATHERFORD INTERNATIONAL: Reports Q4 Net Loss of $1.94 Billion
---------------------------------------------------------------
Weatherford International plc reported a net loss of $1.94 billion,
or a loss of $1.95 per share for the fourth quarter of 2017.
Non-GAAP net loss for the fourth quarter of 2017, excluding charges
and credits, was $329 million, or $0.33 diluted loss per share.
This compares to a $221 million non-GAAP net loss for the third
quarter of 2017, or $0.22 diluted loss per share, and a $303
million non-GAAP net loss for the fourth quarter of the prior year,
or $0.32 diluted loss per share.  Revenue in the fourth quarter of
2017 was $1.49 billion, which increased 2% from revenue of $1.46
billion for the third quarter of 2017 and was 6% higher than the
$1.41 billion of revenue reported for the fourth quarter of 2016.
The sequential and year-over-year increase was primarily led by the
Eastern Hemisphere, with increased activity from contract
deliveries and sales.  Net cash provided by operating activities
was $96 million for the fourth quarter of 2017, as compared to net
cash used of $243 million during the third quarter of 2017.

Operating loss for the fourth quarter of 2017 was $1.74 billion.
Excluding charges and credits, segment operating loss for the
fourth quarter of 2017 was $84 million, compared to a loss of $8
million for the third quarter of 2017.  The sequential decline was
almost equally attributed to both hemispheres and included a number
of exceptional items negatively impacting operating income by $49
million, or $0.05 diluted loss per share.  A change in accounting
for revenue to a cash basis, as well as lower activity in
Venezuela, negatively impacted operating income by $17 million, or
$0.02 diluted loss per share and lower margins on year-end product
sales out of existing inventory negatively impacted operating
results by $17 million, or $0.02 diluted loss per share.

Segment operating results for the fourth quarter of 2017 improved
$32 million, or 28%, compared to the fourth quarter of 2016.  The
year-over-year improvement was primarily driven by growth in
Completions in North America, realization of savings from cost
reduction measures and the impact from the shutdown of Pressure
Pumping operations in the United States in the prior year fourth
quarter as well as the recovery of activity levels in North
America.  This improvement was partially offset by lower results in
Venezuela related to the change in accounting for revenue to cash
basis, continued weakness in offshore markets in the Eastern
Hemisphere, which were partially offset by market share gains in
land markets in the Middle East, Russia and Continental Europe.

Mark A. McCollum, president and chief executive officer, commented,
"During the fourth quarter, we took assertive steps to improve our
operational structure and our balance sheet.  We completed an
organizational realignment that enhances synergies between our
product and service offerings and brings decision making closer to
the field level.  We successfully achieved our initial cost savings
targets and monetized our U.S. pressure pumping and pump-down
perforating assets.  Our revenue increased sequentially and we
exceeded free cash flow targets.  However, EBITDA was negatively
impacted by the monetization of inventory at low margins, as well
as a number of exceptional non-cash items.  We expect significant
sequential improvements in EBITDA for the first quarter of 2018."

Full year 2017 revenue was $5.70 billion, a slight decrease of $50
million, or 1%, from 2016.  Full year operating loss for 2017 was
$2.13 billion, compared to a loss of $2.25 billion for 2016.
Excluding charges and credits, full year adjusted segment operating
loss for 2017 was $258 million compared to a loss of $567 million
for 2016.  This significant year-over-year improvement in segment
operating performance was led by North America, as a result of
improvements in the underlying business, cost reductions and
efficiency improvements as well as the shutdown of U.S. pressure
pumping during the fourth quarter of 2016.

McCollum continued, "In 2017, we set the stage for the future of
Weatherford.  We have made significant progress, taking decisive
and strategic actions throughout 2017.  In addition to realigning
and flattening our structure, we initiated an organizational
transformation plan that will create an estimated $1 billion in
profit improvements over the next 18 to 24 months.  Since
announcing this plan last quarter, we have taken further steps as
an organization to develop rigorous, detailed plans and validate
our ability to meet this target."

In the quarter, we recorded pre-tax charges of $1.59 billion, the
majority of which are non-cash.  These charges primarily include
$1.68 billion in impairments and asset write-downs, a $96 million
gain on the disposition of our U.S. pressure pumping and pump-down
perforating assets, $43 million in severance and restructuring
charges and $28 million in credits related to the fair value
adjustment of the outstanding warrant.

Cash Flow and Financial Covenants

Net cash provided by operating activities was $96 million for the
fourth quarter of 2017, driven by improved accounts receivable
collections and a reduction in inventory levels from year-end
product sales, partially offset by cash payments of $104 million
for debt interest, $38 million for cash severance and restructuring
costs and $30 million for legal settlements.  Fourth quarter
capital expenditures of $78 million increased by $13 million or 20%
sequentially, and increased $10 million or 15% from the same
quarter in the prior year.  Full year 2017 capital expenditures
were $225 million, primarily representing investments in our Well
Construction and Drilling and Evaluation business units.  Excluding
Land Drilling Rigs, the Company expects capital expenditures in
2018 to remain broadly in line with 2017.

On Dec. 29, 2017, the Company completed the sale of its U.S.
hydraulic fracturing and pump-down perforating assets for $430
million in cash.  The proceeds from the sale were used to reduce
outstanding debt.

The Company remains in compliance with its financial covenants as
defined in its revolving and secured term loan credit facilities as
of Dec. 31, 2017, and expects to continue to remain in compliance
with all covenants based on current financial projections.

Taxes

The fourth quarter non-GAAP tax provision was $47 million, and
includes a higher tax expense of $10 million associated with
entities that are no longer being benefited due to the
establishment of a valuation allowance in the fourth quarter and an
increase in uncertain tax positions of $10 million.  The sum of
these exceptional tax charges during the fourth quarter totaled
$0.02 diluted loss per share.  Excluding these exceptional items,
tax expense from recurring operations was due to profits in certain
jurisdictions, deemed profit countries and withholding taxes on
intercompany charges.

Technology and Highlights

   * Weatherford was named Wells Supplier of the Year 2017 by
     Shell International Exploration & Production Inc. in
     recognition of outstanding safety and service quality as well
     as the Company's collaborative, solutions-based approach.

   * Weatherford reduced nonproductive time 23% year-over-year.

   * The AutoTong system, which was introduced by the Company in
     September, has been successfully deployed on four jobs
     globally, including land and offshore operations.  The system
     delivered consistent connection makeup and immediately
     alerted the customer to any connections that did not meet the
     established parameters, assuring greater well integrity.

   * Several operators in the U.S. and the Middle East have begun
     shifting their wells from electric submersible pumps to jet-
     lift and gas-lift systems.  Weatherford jet-lift and gas-lift
     systems can be installed without a rig, which reduces
     deferred production and saves operational costs.  This trend
     is especially strong in the Permian Basin.

   * The ForeSite production optimization platform has gained
     significant traction, with installations in progress on 1,800

     reciprocating-rod lift units in the U.S.  After installations

     are completed in mid-February, the production monitoring
     phase of the project will commence.

   * The Land Drilling Rigs business achieved a 25% decrease in
     nonproductive time year-over-year.

Operating Segments

In the fourth quarter of 2017, the Company realigned its
organization into two operating segments, Western Hemisphere and
Eastern Hemisphere.  The Company's Western Hemisphere segment
represents the prior North America and Latin America segments as
well as land drilling rig operations in Colombia and Mexico.  Its
Eastern Hemisphere segment represents the prior MENA/Asia Pacific
segment and Europe/SSA/Russia segment as well as land drilling rig
operations in the Eastern Hemisphere.  Research and development
expenses are now included in the Western and Eastern Hemisphere
segment results.

Western Hemisphere

Fourth quarter revenues of $759 million were down $8 million or 1%
sequentially, and up $23 million, or 3%, year-over-year.  The
sequential decrease was primarily from the change in accounting for
revenue with the Company's customers in Venezuela to a cash basis
during the quarter and project delays in Argentina, offset by
higher activity in Mexico and seasonal recovery in Canada.
Year-over-year revenues increased primarily in Canada, the U.S. and
Mexico, offset by a decrease in Venezuela.

Fourth quarter segment operating loss of $35 million was down $38
million sequentially from segment operating income of $3 million in
the third quarter.  The sequential decrease was a result of the
change in accounting for revenue with our customers in Venezuela to
a cash basis as well as overall lower activity levels. A delay in
the startup of integrated Completions operations in Argentina,
combined with a high level of exceptional and startup expenses,
also impacted results.  In the U.S., the quarter was negatively
affected by an unfavorable mix of products and services as well as
exceptional items.

Year-over-year improvement was primarily driven by growth in
Completions in North America, realization of savings from cost
reduction measures and the impact from the shutdown of Pressure
Pumping operations in the United States in the prior year fourth
quarter as well as the recovery of activity levels in North
America.  These results were partially offset by a difficult
geopolitical climate in Venezuela.

Operational highlights in the Western Hemisphere during the quarter
include:

   * Weatherford set a new single-run drilling record in the
     northeast U.S. using a suite of directional drilling
     technologies.  The well design included a 45-degree curve and
     an extended lateral for a total of 13,571 feet.  Weatherford
     drilled the curve and lateral in a single run with a high
     rate of penetration and without any safety incidents.

   * Weatherford commenced work on a two-year contract providing
     Tubular Running Services on two rigs in the Gulf of Mexico
     and Trinidad and Tobago. The operator, a super-major IOC,
     awarded Weatherford the contract based on a record of
     exceptional performance as well as a strong, collaborative
     relationship.

   * Weatherford set two benchmarks for operators in Brazil.
     First, Weatherford successfully completed an offshore well
     with a record-length, 2,900-meter liner.  On a separate job,
     Weatherford ran a tieback string at a record rate of 19.1
     joints per hour without any health, safety or environmental
     incidents.  The previous record was 15.7 joints per hour.

Eastern Hemisphere

Fourth quarter revenues of $731 million were up $38 million or 5%
sequentially, and up $61 million, or 9% year-over-year.  The
sequential increase was primarily led by higher activity and higher
year-end product sales in Kuwait, Saudi Arabia and Russia.
Year-over-year revenues increased primarily in Kuwait and Russia,
offset by an overall decrease from Australia, Oman and Pakistan.

Fourth quarter segment operating loss of $49 million decreased $38
million sequentially from a loss of $11 million.  The sequential
decrease was primarily attributed to a delay in timing between
recognition of revenue and cost in Kuwait, as well as low-margin
year-end product sales, startup costs for offshore projects in Asia
and other exceptional items.

Year-over-year results were down primarily due to continued
weakness in offshore markets, partially offset by market share
gains in land markets in the Middle East, Russia and Continental
Europe.

Operational highlights in the Eastern Hemisphere during the quarter
include:

    * Weatherford was recognized by Rosneft as the Best Technical
      Support Service Company - Cementing Operations, 2016-2017.

    * Weatherford won a 3-year contract to provide directional
      drilling services, including rotary-steerable systems and
      measurement and logging while drilling, on six rigs in
      Russia.  The tender was awarded based on the merits of
      Weatherford's technology as well as a positive existing
      relationship with the operator.  Work is currently underway.

    * In the Middle East, by applying managed pressure drilling
      (MPD) services on three wells with narrow drilling windows,
      Weatherford achieved new field records for speed and footage

      per bit.  Following the successful drilling operation,
      Weatherford adapted the MPD system to monitor fluids
      displacement while cementing a long completion string in one

      of the wells.  As a result of these efficiencies, the
      operator saved an estimated $350,000 to $500,000 per well.

WOODBRIDGE GROUP: Reaches Settlement with SEC, Unsecured Creditors
------------------------------------------------------------------
Woodbridge Group of Companies, LLC on Feb. 6, 2018, disclosed that
it has reached a comprehensive settlement with the United States
Securities and Exchange Commission and the Official Committee of
Unsecured Creditors appointed in its Chapter 11 bankruptcy case by
resolving the SEC's and Committee's requests for the appointment of
a Chapter 11 trustee and providing for the appointment of fiduciary
representative groups for the other major creditor constituencies
which represent investors owed as much as $1 billion.

The agreement involved reconstituting the Board of Managers (the
"Board") with three experienced restructuring professionals -
Richard Nevins, M. Freddie Reiss, and Michael Goldberg - with
unique skillsets that will be useful in helping to maximize
recoveries for creditors and investors.

"In a matter of days, the Board has met with each of the creditor
and investor groups, hired Frederick Chin who has extensive
experience in real estate development and will operate the business
on a day-to-day basis as Chief Executive Officer ('CEO'), and
retained Bradley Sharp, of Development Specialists, Inc., who is a
seasoned chief restructuring officer ('CRO') and will navigate the
Chapter 11 process," said Richard Nevins, a member of the Board of
Managers.

"The Board, Mr. Chin and Mr. Sharp look forward to working closely
with the investor and creditor groups toward a fair, prompt and
transparent resolution of the bankruptcy cases," said Michael
Goldberg, a member of the Board of Managers.  "The new management
team is cognizant of the difficult position that creditors and
investors are in and is fully committed to the mission of achieving
the best possible results for all of them, while also seeking to
protect their interest from numerous third parties that are seeking
to buy claims at a lowball price or to represent their interest by
filing a simple proof of claim form for a whopping contingent fee,
at times as much as 30 percent."

Steven Kortanek of Drinker, Biddle & Reath, LLP, counsel to the Ad
Hoc Noteholder Group, added, "We are pleased that the parties'
settlement has resulted not only in the appointment of very capable
and committed new management, but also court-approved
representation of all noteholder investors through the Ad Hoc
Noteholder Group.  We are committed to pursuing a value-maximizing
outcome in these chapter 11 cases."

"The Settlement authorized the appointment of fiduciary groups for
the investors of Woodbridge to ensure their respective voices are
heard and represented," said Dr. Raymond Blackburn, a member of the
Ad Hoc Unitholder Group.

"The Settlement also paves the way for the bankruptcy filing of
additional non-debtor affiliates, which will allow the assets of
those entities to be administered in the debtors' bankruptcy
proceedings, which will also help advance the goal of maximizing
recoveries for creditors," said Richard M. Pachulski of Pachulski
Stang Ziehl & Jones LLP, counsel to the Creditors' Committee.

[*] Scott Zemser Rejoins Mayer Brown as Partner in New York
-----------------------------------------------------------

leveraged finance lawyer Scott Zemser has rejoined the firm in New
York as a partner in the Banking & Finance practice, where he will

that he was a partner at White & Case.  Mr. Zemser began his career
at Mayer Brown.

"Scott is highly regarded as a market leading leveraged finance and
restructuring lawyer and it's a privilege to welcome him back to
the firm," said Paul Jorissen, co-leader of Mayer Brown's global

relationships in the financial community, will enhance our

Mr. Zemser has more than 25 years of experience practicing in the
US and international leveraged finance markets and represents banks

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
