CHINA EASTERN: Singapore Air's Stake Purchase Raises Concern
------------------------------------------------------------
China Eastern Airlines' US$1 billion equity deal with Singapore
Airlines has raised concerns in Beijing over share issuance and
the Singapore government's role, sources close to the deal told
Reuters.

According to Reuters' sources, no foreign government has been
allowed to invest in China's airline industry, deemed
strategically important for the country, and the deal, if
approved, could set a precedent.

Another factor holding up the deal is the involvement of
Singapore's state investment arm, Temasek, which has some
investments in China's financial sector, including a minor stake
in Minsheng Banking Corp., one of the sources indicated to the
news agency.

The Troubled Company Reporter - Asia Pacific, citing Bloomberg
News, reported on May 28 that Temasek Holdings Pte may join its
56% owned unit, Singapore Airlines to bid for a stake in China
Eastern Airlines.  According to the TCR-AP, Singapore Air could
benefit from Temasek's involvement by acquiring stakes from the
Chinese airline without putting a huge capital upfront.

Those concerns, however, are not expected to scuttle the deal,
the sources told Reuters, adding that the deal could receive
Beijing's approval as early as this week, but they have cast
some uncertainty over the shape that a final deal may take.

As reported by the TCR-AP, Singapore Air and China Eastern have
been in talks for a strategic partnership deal.  On May 25,
2007, the TCR-AP cited Singapore Air as saying that that the two
companies are "in advance stage of discussion" and that the
agreement is now only waiting for official approval.

* Taiwan's Auto Sector Faces Bumpy Road, Says Taiwan Ratings
------------------------------------------------------------
Taiwan's auto makers are battling for profitability amid
weakening sales, but the top players should withstand the
pressure, thanks to their strong balance sheets and good cash
flow protection measures.  In an article titled, "Lenders Hold
The Key To Taiwan's Auto Recovery," Taiwan Ratings Corp., a
subsidiary of Standard & Poor's Ratings Services, said that
sales will remain lackluster while consumer credit lines
contract because of tighter underwriting policies among captive
finance companies and the exit of several banks from this part
of the market.

New-car sales slumped 21% year-on-year in the first quarter of
2007, a period when auto sales typically peak.  "While banks'
generous lending terms and automakers' aggressive financing
campaigns pushed car sales to a decade high in 2005, they may
have taken the edge off demand in 2006 --and most likely 2007--
by bringing sales forward," said credit analyst Frank Fan.

The article also suggests that asset quality among financiers
has stabilized, but stricter underwriting policies will be
needed to prevent further credit loss.  Taiwan's leading auto
companies include Hotai Motor Co. Ltd., China Motor Corp., and
Yulon Motor Co. Ltd.

GENERAL MOTORS: Moody's Junks Rating on US$1.1-Billion Debt
-----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a Caa1 (LGD4, 58%) to the
US$1.1 billion of convertible debt securities of General Motors
Corporation, and a Ba3 (LGD1, 6%) rating to the company's
proposed US$4.1 billion, 364 day credit facility that would be
secured by its 49% ownership in GMAC LLC.

Moody's also affirmed GM's B3 Corporate Family Rating and B3
Probability of Default Rating, and maintained its SGL-3
Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating.  The rating outlook remains
negative.  The proposed transactions would build GM's available
liquidity to about US$36 billion, consisting of US$26 billion in
cash and short-term VEBA balances, US$8.6 billion in secured
credit facilities, and US$1.5 billion in additional committed
lines.

"Despite this considerable level of liquidity, we think that
it's very prudent for GM to continue to build its liquidity
because of the sizable cash drain it could face in hammering out
workable labor agreements with the UAW and in contending with
North American consumer demand that continues to move away from
large trucks and SUVs," said Bruce Clark, Senior Vice President
and lead auto analyst for Moody's.

The greatest near-term risk facing GM is the large cash drain
that could result if the company's operations were to be
disrupted by a prolonged UAW work stoppage associated with
either the reorganization process taking place at Delphi or with
the automakers' labor negotiations that will take place this
fall.  "A shut down of GM production because of any impasse with
the UAW could cause a huge drain of cash for the company over a
very short period, and gives rise to the company's current
efforts to build excess liquidity," Clark said.

Aside from any potential strike risks, GM also faces the
prospect of making large cash payments in connection with simply
reaching an accord with the unions.  GM may have to make a
contribution to help bridge the remaining gap between the UAW
and Delphi management regarding the level of wage and benefit
programs necessary for Delphi to emerge from bankruptcy
protection.  However, the rating agency's major concern is with
the potential cost to GM of reaching its own labor agreement in
September.  "It's unlikely that GM will be able to establish a
viable long-term business model unless it achieves major work
rule and health care relief as part of the new contract," Clark
said.  The company is currently burdened with US$5 billion in
annual health care expenses and a US$47 billion health care-
related OPEB liability.  "As part of its September negotiations,
GM could have to write a very large check in order to get
meaningful healthcare and work rule relief," he said, adding
that "the long term benefits of the relief would likely be
sizable, but the company might have to pay a lot up front in
order to get it."

Once GM gets past the hurdles with the UAW, it then has to
contend with a challenging North American operating environment.
A softening in overall consumer demand for new vehicles or a
shift away from the company's profitable T900 trucks and SUVs
could contribute to a significant reduction in profitability
during 2007 and operating losses in 2008.  Because of these
risks, Moody's continues to maintain a negative outlook on the
company's B3 Corporate Family Rating.  Stabilization of the
rating outlook would require a resolution of labor issues and a
stabilization of market share that enables the company to
establish and sustain adequate profitability and cash flow in
its North American operations.  In the near term, any evidence
of labor disruptions or erosion of liquidity could lead to a
downward rating adjustment.

Despite large cash balances, Moody's continues to regard the
company's overall liquidity profile as being consistent with an
SGL-3 Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating.  The potential cash
calls that could arise from labor disruptions or settlements
over the coming months could present a degree of volatility in
liquidity that is more appropriately reflected in the SGL-3
rating.  Moody's acknowledges the company's strong efforts in
bolstering liquidity, which should provide a degree of credit
stability should labor negotiations not progress smoothly.
Should the company achieve a favorable resolution of its labor
negotiations while maintaining a strong liquidity profile, the
Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating could be raised.

leader since 1931.  Founded in 1908, GM employs about 317,000

GENERAL MOTORS: Gets US$4.1 Bil. Credit Facility Commitments
------------------------------------------------------------
General Motors Corporation disclosed in a regulatory filing with
the Securities and Exchange Commission that as of May 22, 2007,
the company obtained non-binding lender commitments to provide a
secured revolving credit facility in an aggregate principal
amount of approximately US$4.1 billion.

GM anticipates that the facility will be secured by GM's common
equity interest in GMAC LLC and will mature 364 days after the
date that the definitive agreements are executed.

According to GM, the credit facility could be used for general
corporate purposes, including working capital needs.

The commitments are subject to a number of conditions, including
negotiation of definitive agreements.

Consequently, GM said there can be no assurance that it will
ultimately enter into the contemplated credit facility, and if
the transaction to establish the facility is successfully
closed, GM's ability to borrow under the facility will be
subject to customary conditions and limitations.

                        Fitch Takes Action

Fitch Ratings downgraded GM's senior unsecured debt rating to
'B-/RR5' from 'B/RR4' and placed GM's 'B' Issuer Default Rating
under Negative Watch along with other outstanding ratings
following the company's announcement that it will be raising
US$4.1 billion in secured financing.

According to Fitch, the US$4.1 billion 364-day facility, to be
secured by GM's common equity holdings in GMAC, will be assigned
a rating of 'BB/RR1'.

Fitch states that the downgrade action reflects increase in debt
levels and the resulting reduced recovery expectations for
senior unsecured debt holders.

               GM Amends Proposed Underwriting Pacts

On March 18, 2004, General Motors filed a post-effective
amendment to its registration statement on Form S-3
(File #333-108532).

proposed Underwriting Agreement of GM relating to Debt
Securities (including form of Delayed Delivery Contract) and
Exhibit 1(b) contained a form of proposed Underwriting Agreement
of GM relating to Convertible Debt Securities.

GM said it has amended each of the forms.

GENERAL MOTORS: To Offer US$1 Billion Notes to Boost Liquidity
--------------------------------------------------------------
General Motors Corporation plans to offer approximately
US$1.1 billion in convertible debt securities.  The notes will
be unsecured and will mature on June 1, 2009.  GM intends to
grant the underwriters of the securities a 13-day option to
purchase up to an additional US$165 million in principal amount
of the securities.

The purpose of the offering is to replace US$1.1 billion in
convertible securities put to the company in March of this year
and to bolster liquidity at a time when the capital markets
present an attractive opportunity to do so.

The joint-book running managers for the offering are Citi,
Deutsche Bank Securities and Goldman, Sachs & Co.

In connection with the offering, GM expects to enter into capped
call transactions with affiliates of the underwriters of the
securities.  The capped call transactions are intended to
substantially increase the effective conversion premium of the
securities and reduce potential dilution to GM common stock upon
potential future conversion.

The counterparties to the capped call transactions have advised
GM that they expect to enter into various derivative and other
hedging activity with respect to GM's common stock, which could
have the effect of increasing, or preventing or offsetting a
decline in, the price of GM's common stock concurrently with or
following the pricing of the convertible debt securities.

                    Revolving Credit Commitment

GM has received commitment for a supplemental revolving credit
facility in an aggregate amount of approximately US$4.1 billion.
The company anticipates that the facility will be secured by
GM's common equity ownership of GMAC LLC and will mature 364
days after the definitive agreement is signed.  The credit line
could be drawn upon for general corporate purposes including
working capital needs.

------------------------------------------------------------
Shinhan Financial Group will buy out the remaining shares of LG
Card Co. Ltd. from creditors and minority shareholders for
KRW830 billion by early July, Reuters says.

The report recounts that in March, Shinhan completed its US$7.2

creditors.

Under a new agreement, Shinhan will buy a 14.3% stake in LG
Card, or 17.9 million shares, at KRW46,392 won per share between
June 14 and July 3.  Those who do not respond to the public

in exchange for one LG Card share, the report relates.

According to Reuters, shareholders objecting to the share swap
with Shinhan shares are allowed to ask Shinhan to buy back their
shares at KRW45,416 apiece.

After the deal, Reuters relates, LG Card will absorb Shinhan's

* DRAM Makers Expect Profitability to Decrease, iSuppli Says
------------------------------------------------------------
Dynamic random access memory makers expect to see a decrease in
their profitability at end-June or early July due to sharp
losses in the second quarter, Reuters reports citing U.S.
research firm iSuppli.

According to the report, suppliers of DRAM, like Samsung
Electronics Co. Ltd. and Hynix Semiconductor Inc., have suffered
sharp drops in their chip prices due to increased capacity, with
some key products seeing price declines of more than 70% since
the beginning of the year.

"The overall industry will show a double-digit loss margin in
this quarter," Derek Lidow, president and chief executive of
iSuppli Corp., told reporters on the sidelines of the Seoul
Digital Forum, Reuters relates.  "The peak period of loss will
be this quarter."

The report points out that some analysts expect both Samsung and
Hynix to record single-digit operating loss margins for their
DRAM units in the second quarter.

"The good news is that the bottom is near," Mr. Lidow said,
Reuters added.  His comments were in line with previous
forecasts given by analysts and manufacturers, who are eagerly
waiting for a seasonal increase in demand in the second half of
the year, the report relates.  As a result of that shift, South
Korean DRAM makers are now in danger of losing their production
lead to Taiwanese and Chinese rivals within the next three
years, Reuters says.

STAR CRUISES: Genting Takes Full Control of Sentosa Project
-----------------------------------------------------------
Star Cruises' sister firm, Genting International, gained full
control of a US$3.4 billion (HK$26.52 billion) casino project in
Singapore after Genting's shareholders approved plans to buy
Star Cruises 25% stake in the deal, The Standard reports, citing
Agence France Press.  

According to the report, Genting disclosed with the Singapore
Stock Exchange that its proposal was "duly passed" at an
extraordinary meeting.

The Troubled Company Reporter - Asia Pacific reported on May 7,
2007, that Star Cruises obtained its shareholders' approval to
sell its 25% stake in a Singapore casino project for SG$255
million to sister firm Genting International in a move to
placate Singapore's government.  The closing of the deal,
according to the TCR-AP, needs shareholders' approval from
Genting.

The Standard recounts that in December, Genting and Star
Cruises, both part of Malaysian conglomerate Genting Bhd, won a
bid to build Singapore's second casino to be located on Sentosa
Island.  But Singapore authorities questioned the consortium
after it announced a tie-up, which would have given Macau
gambling mogul Stanley Ho an indirect stake in the Sentosa
project.

Genting, as previously reported by the TCR-AP, pulled out of the
partnership with Mr. Ho.  Star Cruises, however, remained part
of the deal with Mr. Ho but had to sell its 25% stake to Genting
to severe any links with the Singapore development.

Star Cruises Limited -- http://www.starcruises.com/-- is a  
Company publicly listed in Hong Kong and is a core member of the

ships with 35,000 lower berths under five main brands: Star
Cruises and Cruise Ferries, which service Asia Pacific, and
three brands under NCL.  The company also has operations in
Malaysia.

Standard & Poor's Ratings Services on April 11, 2007, said its
BB- long-term corporate credit ratings on Malaysia-based cruise
operator Star Cruises Ltd., remain on CreditWatch with negative
implications.  The ratings were placed on CreditWatch on
Dec. 11, 2006, following the announcement that Genting
International PLC had won its SD$5.2 billion bid to build
Singapore's second integrated resort on Sentosa Island.

Moody's Investors Service confirmed the B1 corporate family
rating of Star Cruises Limited.  The rating outlook is stable.  
This concludes the ratings review initiated on January 25, 2007.

WOOL EQUITIES LIMITED: To Pay NZ$15,000 for Listing Rule Breach
---------------------------------------------------------------
Wool Equities Ltd. has been found to have breached a listing
rule during a 2004 transaction involving Canesis Network
Limited, various reports say.

On May 28, 2007, the New Zealand Stock Exchange's disciplinary
committee determined that WEL breached Rule 9.1.1 by entering
into a series of linked or related transactions in respect of
which the gross value was in excess of 50% average market
capitalisation without prior shareholder approval by ordinary
resolution.

Under a negotiated settlement, Wool Equities would pay the stock
exchange NZ$15,000, the approximate cost of the investigation,
as well as actual costs incurred approving the settlement
agreement, NZX said.

On May 28, WEL issued a public statement relating to the
settlement:

   "In December 2006 and January 2007, NZX Regulation received
   complaints from a Wool Equities Limited shareholder regarding
   a series of transactions undertaken by WEL in October 2004
   relating to Canesis Network Limited.

   "In October 2004, WEL was a minority shareholder in Canesis
   Networks.  In October 2004, WEL approved, and participated
   in, a capital reduction by Canesis under which capital was
   returned on a pro rata basis to Canesis' two shareholders,
   WEL and Wool Research Organisation of New Zealand.  Under the
   capital reduction, WEL received NZ$2.7 million from Canesis.
   Simultaneously with the capital reduction, WEL advanced
   approximately NZ$2.3 million to Canesis by way of a
   shareholder loan.  The balance of approximately NZ$0.4
   million was received by WEL in cash.

   "Following the capital reduction, WEL purchased 3.8 million
   shares in Canesis from WRONZ for NZ$1.295 per share, paying a
   total of NZ$4.97 million for those shares.

   "The 2004 Canesis Transaction was announced to the market on
   October 12, 2004, and completed on December 22, 2004.  NZXR
   investigated the allegations against WEL, and sought
   explanations from WEL as to the nature and details of the
   transaction.  Following its investigations, NZXR concluded
   that WEL had, in respect of the 2004 Canesis Transaction,
   committed a breach of NZAX Listing Rule 9.1.1 by entering
   into a series of linked or related transactions in respect of
   which the gross value was in excess of 50% of WEL's Average
   Market Capitalisation without prior shareholder approval by
   ordinary resolution.  NZXR consequently referred the matter
   to NZX Discipline.

   "Following the referral to NZXD, WEL and NZXR entered into
   settlement negotiations, which settlement has been approved
   by NZXD.  The disciplinary proceedings against WEL in respect
   of the 2004 Canesis Transaction have been settled on these
   basis:

   1. WEL acknowledges and accepts that it may have committed a
      breach of NZAX Listing Rule 9.1.1 in proceeding with the
      2004 Canesis Transaction without obtaining prior
      shareholder approval;

   2. WEL is to pay a sum of NZ$15,000 to NZX being a equivalent
      to the approximate costs incurred investigating the
      alleged breach by WEL of NZAX Listing Rule 9.1.1, and in
      addition NZXD's actual costs incurred approving the    
      settlement agreement; and

   3. The terms of the settlement are announced.

   "In reaching a settlement, NZXR acknowledges that:

   1. WEL disclosed all the details of the 2004 Canesis
      Transaction to NZX at the time it applied for a waiver
      relating to the related party aspects of the 2004 Canesis
      Transaction.  However, WEL did not ask NZX to consider,
      and therefore NZX did not consider, the application of
      Rule 9.1.1 in relation to the 2004 Canesis Transaction.

   2. At the time of the 2004 Canesis Transaction, WEL provided
      certificates from its independent directors certifying
      that, amongst other matters, the 2004 Canesis Transaction
      was negotiated on an arms length and commercial basis, and
      was in the best interests of shareholders."

PHILCOMSAT HOLDINGS: Clarifies CEO Has Not Resigned
---------------------------------------------------
Philcomsat Holdings Corp.'s President and Chief Executive
Officer Manuel H. Nieto, Jr. has not resigned from the company,
the company said in a regulatory filing with the Philippine
Stock Exchange dated May 28, 2007.

The statement was issued in response to the PSE's letter dated
May 28 seeking clarification of an article published in the
Manila Standard Today on the same date.  The article had
reported that Mr. Nieto and Prudencio Somera and Oliverio
Laperal had resigned from the company.

In the statement, the company explained that:

    * It has not received any communication from Mr. Nieto
      regarding his alleged resignation; and

    * Messrs. Somera and Laperal have indeed resigned from the
      company.  The company's Board of Directors accepted Mr.
      Somera's resignation, which cited unspecified reasons, on
      May 24, 2007.  Mr. Laperal's resignation, which states his
      failing health as a reason, has not been accepted and is
      yet to be acted upon by the company's Board.

Philcomsat Holdings Corporation -- formerly Liberty Mines, Inc.
-- was incorporated on May 10, 1956.  During the 70s and early
80s when the country experienced a boom in geophysical and
drilling activities both offshore and onshore, Philcomsat
Holdings was one of the active participants in search of oil.  
The company has since withdrawn from oil exploration because
there was no commercial discovery of oil.  On January 10, 1997,
the company approved amendments to its Articles of
Incorporation, changing its primary purpose from embarking in
the discovery, exploitation, development and exploration of
mineral oils, petroleum in its natural state, rock or carbon
oils, natural oils and other volatile mineral substances to a
holding company.

According to a Troubled Company Reporter - Asia Pacific report
on May 18, 2006, Philcomsat Holdings has not declared dividends
for the past two fiscal years.  Philcomsat is involved in an
anomaly brought about by huge losses.  The company reported a
PHP6.965-million loss in 2004 and a PHP22-million loss in 2005.  
The Philippine Senate has initiated an inquiry into the matter.  
Moreover, according to press reports, a huge fraction of the
shareholdings of Philcomsat, which is said to be ill gotten, had
been confiscated by the Government.

The Group has, in mid-FY2006, successfully completed a
restructuring exercise whereby it was able to relieve itself
from the encumbrances of substantially all of its financial
liabilities.

Pursuant to the restructuring exercise:

   -- The company issued 31,558,002 new shares in the
      company's capital at an issue price of SGD0.06 each in
      connection with the Scheme between a wholly owned
      subsidiary of the Company, Hong Lai Huat Construction Pte
      Ltd and creditors of HLHC included in the Scheme of
      Arrangement.  Accordingly, approximately SGD15.78 million
      of the debts to the creditors of the Group was settled via
      this issue;

   -- The company issued 128,400,000 shares at an issue
      price of SGD0.01 per share in connection with the Debt
      Conversion whereby an approximately SGD1.28 million of
      debts owing to an Ex-director and that was subsequently
      assigned to a third party, was settled via this issue;

   -- The company issued 95,461,733 shares at an issue price
      of SGD0.01 per share in connection with the Bank Loan
      Conversion whereby the loan of approximately SGD0.95 mil.
      owed by the Group to Malayan Banking Berhad was converted
      into shares in the capital of the company at the issue
      price of SGD0.01 per share;

   -- The company raised SGD6 million from Private Placements
      by issuing 600,000,000 shares in the capital of the
      company at the issue price of SGD0.01 per share; and

   -- The company raised SGD1.85 million from the Mandate Share
      Placement whereby 184,500,000 shares were issued at an
      issue price of SGD0.01.

billion in interest and dividend income, and THB979.75 million
in non-interest income, while incurring THB1.13 billion in
interest expenses and THB1.47 billion in non-interest expenses.

As of March 31, 2007, the bank had total assets of THB207.41
billion and total liabilities of THB187.40 billion, resulting in

    * A3/P-1 local currency issuer rating.


THAI-DURABLE GROUP: Posts THB31.02 Mil. Net Loss in 1st Quarter
---------------------------------------------------------------
Thai-Durable Group PCL posted a net loss of THB31.024 million
for the quarter ended March 31, 2007, a decrease of 80.7% from
the THB160.94 million net loss reported in the same period in
2006.

For the January-March 2007 period, the company earned revenues
of THB1.61 million while incurring expenses of THB7.68 million.

The company's balance sheet showed that it is illiquid, as total
current liabilities of THB827.73 million exceeded total current
assets of THB55.93 million as of March 31, 2007.  The Company
also reported total assets of THB167.84 million and total
liabilities of THB829.25 million, resulting in a stockholders'
deficit of THB661.40 million.

                       Material Litigation

On January 27, 2006, the company was sued by a local bank to
repay all short-term loans and long-term loans totaling
THB273.8 million (including principal and accrued interest).  On
April 17, 2006, the company received a letter from another local
bank to repay all of loans totaling THB452.04 million (included
principal and accrued interest), which the management is in the
process of negotiating for the postponement of loans from that
local bank.

                       Going Concern Doubt

After reviewing Thai-Durable Group PCL's financial statements
for the quarter ended March 31, 2007, Jadesada Hungsapruek at
the Karin Audit Co. Ltd. raised substantial doubt about the
company's ability to continue as a going concern due to:

   * The company' recurring losses;

   * The company's significant accumulated losses;

   * The company's deficit as of March 31, 2007, of THB1.281
     billion;

   * The company's working capital deficit of THB771.81 million
     as of March 31, 2007; and

   * The company's inability to pay short-term and long-term
     loans from two local banks.

Mr. Jadesada adds that the company's ability to continue in the
future depends on:

    * results of the negotiation with the banks relating to the
      postponement of those loans; and

    * the new business plan of the Company and its ability to
      operate successfully in the future and have adequate cash
      flows from operations.

THAI-GERMAN PRODUCTS: Earns THB8.9 Million in 1st Quarter 2007
--------------------------------------------------------------
Thai-German Products PCL reported a net income of THB8.99
million for the three months ended March 31, 2007, as compared
to the THB775,945 net income it reported for the first quarter
of 2006.

For the January-March 2007 quarter, the company earned THB562.17
million in total revenues, while incurring total expenses of
THB547 million.

As of March 31, 2007, the company had total assets of THB1.84
billion and total liabilities of THB1.71 billion, resulting in
THB135.65 million in total shareholders' equity.

Thai-German Products Public Co., Ltd -- http://www.tgpro.co.th/
-- manufactures stainless steel pipe, tube, and sheet in
Thailand under the name "TGPRO" founded by Pracha Leelaprachakul
in 1973.

The company has suffered a series of capital deficits, the
widest being in 2003 with a THB5.31-billion deficit.  That and a
series of net losses and the fact that it was operating below
full production capacity ushered the company into the REHABCO
-- Companies under Rehabilitation -- sector of the Stock
Exchange of Thailand.

In July 2006, the SET reclassified the whole sector and
categorized the company under the "non-performing group."  
Companies under the group will retain their listing status and
will be obligated to comply with the SET requirements.

On February 27, 2007, after auditing the company's consolidated
financial statement for the first half period of 2006, Chaovana
Viwatpanachati at Petisevi & Company expressed doubt on the
company's ability to continue as a going concern and its ability
to accomplish the remaining rehabilitation plan.

                            *********

Tuesday's edition of the TCR-AP delivers a list of indicative
prices for bond issues that reportedly trade well below par.  
Prices are obtained by TCR-AP 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 Tuesday
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-AP constitutes an offer
or solicitation to buy or sell any security of any kind.  It is
likely that some entity affiliated with a TCR-AP editor holds
some position in the issuers' public debt and equity securities
about which we report.

A list of Meetings, Conferences and Seminars appears in each
Wednesday's edition of the TCR-AP. Submissions about insolvency-
related conferences are encouraged.  Send announcements to
conferences@bankrupt.com

Friday's edition of the TCR-AP features a list of companies with
insolvent balance sheets obtained by our editors based on the
latest balance sheets publicly available a day prior to
publication.  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.
