BUCKEYE TECH: Earns US$30.1 Million in Year Ended June 30
---------------------------------------------------------
Buckeye Technologies Inc. earned US$30.1 million on
US$769.3 million of net revenues for the fiscal year ended
June 30, 2007, compared to US$1.9 million of net income on
US$728.4 million of net revenues for the previous year.

On June 30, 2007, the company had US$14.8 million of cash and
cash equivalents and US$65 million borrowing capacity on our old
credit facility.

The company's total debt and capital leases decreased
US$76.2 million (including the cancellation of the
US$5.0 million note owed to Stac-Pac Technologies Inc.) to
US$445.9 million at June 30, 2007, from US$522.1 million at
June 30, 2006.  From June 30, 2005, to June 30, 2006, total debt
decreased by US$16.9 million.  Its total debt as a percentage of
total capitalization was 56.2% at June 30, 2007, compared to
64.3% at June 30, 2006 and 66.7% at June 30, 2005.

The company has the following major sources of financing: a
senior secured credit facility, senior notes and senior
subordinated notes.  Its senior secured credit facility, senior
notes and senior subordinated notes contain various covenants.
The company was in compliance with these covenants as of
June 30, 2007, and believes it will continue to remain in
compliance for the foreseeable future.  These sources of
financing are described in detail in Note 8, Debt, to the
Consolidated Financial Statements.

On July 25, 2007, the company established a new US$200 million
senior secured revolving credit facility with a maturity date of
July 25, 2012.  This facility amends and restates the company's
existing credit facility.  Initially, the proceeds from this new
credit facility were used to pay the outstanding balance on the
former credit facility plus fees and expenses.  The interest
rate applicable to borrowings under the revolver is grid based
pricing, related to our total leverage ratio, of the agent's
prime rate plus 0.25% to 1.00% or a LIBOR-based rate ranging
from LIBOR plus 1.25% to LIBOR plus 2.00%.   The company plans
to use the proceeds from this facility to redeem the remaining
US$60 million of our 2008 notes, to redeem US$20 million of the
2010 notes in mid-September 2007, and for general corporate
purposes.  The credit facility is secured by substantially all
of the company's assets located in the United States.

The new credit facility contains covenants customary for
financing of this type.  The financial covenants include:
maximum total leverage ratio of consolidated total debt to
consolidated earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and
amortization (EBITDA), and minimum ratio of consolidated EBITDA
to consolidated interest expense.  During fiscal year 2007, the
company were in compliance with the financial covenants under
its old credit facility.

The new credit facility (taking into account the US$33.6 million
outstanding on the old term loan) increased borrowing capacity
to US$161.4 million.  The new credit facility also contains a
US$50 million increase option.  The portion of this capacity
that the company could borrow on a particular date will depend
on its financial results and ability to comply with certain
borrowing conditions under the new revolving credit facility.
The commitment fee, on the unused portion of the new revolving
credit facility, ranges from 0.25% to 0.40% per annum based on a
grid related to its leverage ratio.  Total costs for the
issuance of the new facility were approximately US$1.3 million
and will be amortized to interest expense using the effective
interest method over the life of the facility.

Headquartered in Memphis, Tennessee, Buckeye Technologies Inc.
(NYSE:BKI) -- http://www.bkitech.com/-- manufactures and
markets specialty fibers and non-woven materials.  The company
currently operates facilities in the United States, Germany,

rating to B1 from B2 and maintained a stable outlook.  All other

CHRYSLER LLC: Reveals 0% APR Incentive Plan for September 2007
--------------------------------------------------------------
Chrysler LLC has disclosed that it will continue its low-rate
financing through Oct. 1, 2007, with a 0% APR offering for 72
months or a 0% APR offering for 60 months on select 2007 model
year vehicles.

Separately, the company will offer consumer cash and competitive
lease rates.  These different options give customers many
choices when purchasing a new Chrysler, Jeep or Dodge vehicle.

"Chrysler will extend its low-rate financing into September,
with a 0% APR offering for 72 months on select 2007 models,"
said Michael Keegan, vice president for Volume Planning and
Sales Operations.  "We will continue to focus on our great
products and the 2007 model year-end clearance while emphasizing
the new Lifetime Powertrain Warranty."

The 0% APR offering for 72 months includes the following 2007

United States with excess inventory, non-competitive legacy
costs for employees and retirees, continuing high fuel prices

same time, key competitors have further increased margin and
volume pressures -- particularly on light trucks -- by making
significant price concessions.  In addition, increased interest
rates caused higher sales & marketing expenses.

COLES GROUP: Wesfarmers Admits it Can't Uncurl Coles Right Away
---------------------------------------------------------------
Wesfarmers Ltd.'s managing director, Richard Goyder, says that
it will take the company four years to rebuild the Coles Group
Limited businesses should its bid be successful, ABC News
reports.

After an enhanced proposal to Coles shareholders, Mr. Goyder
admits to ABC's Lateline business program that he would not be
able to turn Coles around straight away.

ABC quotes Mr. Goyder as saying, "It will take some time to get
things right in the business and four years is a reasonable
period we think to get the sort of performance we're looking at
not only from the new Coles assets Wesfarmers will own but our
existing businesses."

Mr. Goyder, according to ABC, denied suggestions that tougher
restrictions on Coles looking for other bidders as part of the
company's renewed offer for the retailer were a sign he didn't
trust the Coles board.

The Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific reported on Sept. 7,
2007, that Wesfarmers recently offered Coles shareholders a form
of Wesfarmers Price Protected Shares for an equivalent of half
of the share component to be offered to Coles shareholders.

Coles shareholders, TCR-AP wrote, will get AU$4, plus
0.14215 Wesfarmers ordinary shares, plus the new 0.14215
Wesfarmers WPPS shares, while the 'mix and match' option
announced by Wesfarmers earlier this month, enabling
shareholders to maximize the scrip or cash proportions of the
offer as they wish, remains in place.

                     About Coles Group

SYMBION HEALTH: Healthscope Fails to Get 75% Votes for Takeover
---------------------------------------------------------------
Symbion Health Limited announced that it had not received
adequate votes in favor of the scheme of arrangement with
Healthscope Ltd.  Despite almost unanimous support for the
scheme from Symbion Health shareholders other than Primary
Health Care, Primary Health Care voted its shares against the
scheme and its 20% shareholding was enough to deprive Symbion
Health shareholders of the benefits of the merger with
Healthscope.

Excluding the shares held by Primary Health Care, 99.2% of
shares voted were voted in favor of the scheme, which were held
by 81.1% of shareholders who voted.  Including the shares held
by Primary Health Care, 73.9% of shares voted were voted in
favor of the scheme, which is just below the 75% threshold
required to approve the scheme.

In commenting on the results of today's meeting Symbion Health's
Chairman Mr. Paul McClintock said, "It is disappointing that
despite the very strong support of Symbion Health shareholders
other than Primary Health Care, the proposed scheme of
arrangement with Healthscope was not approved.  Primary Health
Care is a competitor of Symbion Health and it is possible that
Primary Health Care's commercial interests differ from the
interests of other Symbion Health shareholders.

"Whilst it was always going to be close if Primary Health Care
voted against the scheme, it was still important to proceed with
today's vote in order to confirm Symbion Health shareholders'
(other than Primary Health Care) support for the transaction.
Today's voting results demonstrate that the virtually all
shareholders were supportive of the proposed merger with
Healthscope, and recognize the significant value that could be
created through the transaction.  These results will be an
important consideration for the Symbion Health Directors when
considering the company's future," Mr. McClintock said.

In commenting on the future direction of Symbion Health, Mr.
McClintock said, "Symbion Health has an attractive portfolio of
businesses and remains fully committed to its strategy of
business reinvigoration and growth.  The strategies in place are
progressing well and we are confident that these strategies will
deliver significant value to shareholders.  Continuing to run
Symbion Health as a standalone business is a very attractive
option for Symbion Health."

"Symbion Health remains in a unique position to drive and
benefit from industry consolidation.  The merger with
Healthscope voted on today was put to shareholders because the
Symbion Health Directors genuinely believe that it is a very
attractive offer that warranted consideration by shareholders.
Given the resounding support today from shareholders (other than
Primary Health Care), we may consider other proposals that
deliver a similar outcome for Symbion Health shareholders," Mr.
McClintock said.

            Alternative transaction with Healthscope

Given the strong support for the proposed merger with
Healthscope, one option that may be considered by the Symbion
Health Directors is for Symbion Health to seek to implement a
transaction with Healthscope using an alternative structure.  No
alternative transaction has been agreed by the parties at this
point in time.  If this was to occur shareholders would be
provided with additional information in relation to any such
alternative transaction.

The Scheme Implementation Deed between Symbion Health and
Healthscope dated 29 May 2007 remains in place and specifies
that Symbion Health and Healthscope will, for a period of five
business days, consult in good faith with a view to determining
whether the transaction can be structured by alternative means,
before either party can terminate the Scheme Implementation
Deed.  Symbion Health and Healthscope intend to commence these
discussions immediately.

In commenting on a potential alternative transaction, Mr.
McClintock said, "The Symbion Health Directors will only
consider an alternative transaction if it delivers an attractive
outcome for Symbion Health shareholders and has the same
compelling strategic rationale as the proposed merger with
Healthscope.  Given the confidence we have in our businesses
going forward, continuing as a standalone entity is also a
compelling option for Symbion Health."

Symbion Health will keep the market updated in relation to any
material developments.

CITIC SECURITIES: Obtains Nod to Operate Equity Business
--------------------------------------------------------
CITIC Securities had won the securities regulator's approval to
operate a private equity business on a trial basis, investing in
companies before their initial public offerings, China Daily
reports, citing Reuters.

Citing a statement published with the China Securities Journal,
China Daily relates that the company would set aside CNY831
million (US$110.5 million) to set up its planned private equity
unit.  However, the unit will then use its own money to run its
business.

The report explains that the securities regulator restricts
domestic private equity firms to invest only in companies that
had firm plans to issue new shares and places a three-year cap
on such investments.

Incorporated in Bermuda in 1997, CITIC Resources has its shares
listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.  The company positions
itself as an integrated provider of key commodities and
strategic natural resources with particular focus in oil
business.  The principal activities of the company and its
subsidiaries are in the fields of oil, aluminium, coal, import
and export of commodities, manganese and iron ore.  CITIC Group
(formerly China International Trust and Investment Corporation)
became the majority controlling shareholder of the Company in
March 2004, indirectly holding interest in the Company of over
54%.

Standard & Poor's Ratings Services on May 9, 2007, assigned its
BB long-term corporate credit rating to CITIC Resources Holdings
Ltd.  The outlook is developing.  At the same time, it issued
its BB issue rating to a proposed intermediate-term U.S. dollar
benchmark issue of senior unsecured notes by Citic Resources
Finance (2007) Ltd.


FIAT SPA: Magneti Signs Joint Venture with Chery Automobile
-----------------------------------------------------------
Fiat S.p.A.'s Magneti Marelli and Chery Automobile Co. Ltd. have
signed a Memorandum of Understanding for the creation of a joint
venture in China aimed at the production of hydraulic components
for Magneti Marelli's Automated Manual Transmission, also known
as Selespeed.

The joint venture will be operative by the spring of 2008.
Based on the Memorandum of Understanding, Magneti Marelli will
hold the majority of the future company's capital.  The
components manufactured by the new company will be used by Chery
for its automobiles equipped with automated transmission, and
they will be made available to other car makers as well.

"This agreement takes on a special strategic relevance since it
fits into a market context, the Chinese one,  where the
automated transmission, in its various technological versions,
is starting to become popular and is increasingly requested by
the public," Magneti Marelli CEO Eugenio Razelli disclosed.

"In this sense, Magneti Marelli's AMT automated transmission
represents a competitive technology thanks to a price-
performance ratio that is especially convenient for the Chinese
market and to its ability to reduce fuel consumptions and the
emission of pollutants and CO2," Mr. Razelli added.

Chery Automobile Co. Ltd is one of the leading Chinese car
manufacturers, located in Wuhu.  Chery was the first Chinese car
maker to adopt Magneti Marelli's Selespeed system (since 2004)
to automate transmissions fitted on its automobiles on the
market.

produces and markets advanced systems and components for motor
vehicles.  With its 45 production facilities (55 production

ZTE CORP: Rival Amsterdam Holdings Wants to Look at NBN Deal
------------------------------------------------------------
Amsterdam Holdings Inc. will seek the approval of the Supreme
Court to gain access and provide copies of the controversial
US$330 million national broadband network deal inked by the
Philippine Government and ZTE Corp., GMA News reports.

In a press statement obtained by the news agency, Amsterdam
Holdings said it will also ask the High Tribunal to issue a
preliminary injunction against the Department of Transportation
and Communication and other government agencies involved in the
project to stop them from entering into any agreement
implementing the NBN until the legality of the entire contract
is determined.

Amsterdam Holdings, as previously reported by the Troubled
Company Reporter - Asia Pacific is one of the losing bidders for
the broadband network deal.

According to GMA News, Amsterdam Holdings maintains that it
should have won the contract as it submitted the first complete
unsolicited proposal for the project and offered to undertake
the project through the build-operate-transfer scheme.  Instead,
the DOTC awarded the contract to the Government of China which
will be providing a US$330-million loan for the network.  The
Chinese government in turn assigned ZTE Corp. to undertake the
project.

Under the Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) Law, Amsterdam said the
DOTC should have acted on its unsolicited proposal and subjected
the proposal to a "Swiss challenge" instead of being junked in
favor of the government-to-government proposal of ZTE.

Headquartered in Shenzhen, China, ZTE Corp's principal
activities are the production and sale of general system and
communication terminal equipments.

The group operates both in the domestic and international
market.

The Troubled Company Reporter - Asia Pacific reported on Dec. 1,
2006, that Fitch Ratings assigned ZTE Corp. Long-term foreign
and local currency Issuer Default ratings of 'BB+'.  The rating
Outlook is Stable.

GENERAL MOTORS: Expects Steady Sales Growth in Three Markets
------------------------------------------------------------
General Motors Corp.'s sales in Latin America, Africa and the
Middle East will grow by a few billion dollars each year through
the rest of the decade, Maureen Kempston Darkes, GM's president
for the three regions said, Reuters reports.

The carmaker had increased its revenue in those regions to about
US$15 billion in 2006, from about US$5.4 billion in 2003,
Reuters relates.

"I think we will see a similar growth in revenue through the
rest of the decade, unless there are some unforeseen
circumstances," Ms. Kempston Darkes said, Reuters notes.

According to the report, she also said GM may increase capacity
by adding third shifts at many Latin American assembly plants to
meet higher demand for vehicles in the region.

"The industry is running faster than our ability to keep up with
it.  We will have to increase capacity because we are selling
everything we are making," Reuters quotes Ms. Kempston Darkes as
saying.

Overseas sales accounted for 58% of total sales in the second
quarter, and GM Chief Executive Rick Wagoner has said he expects
sales outside the United States to continue surpassing domestic
sales in the next few years, Reuters states.

NAVISTAR INT'L: S&P's BB- Corp. Rating Still on CreditWatch
-----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services has said that its 'BB-'
corporate credit ratings on Navistar International Corp. and
subsidiary Navistar Financial Corp. remain on CreditWatch with
negative implications, where they were placed on Jan. 17, 2006.
The company has no rated debt, having repaid virtually all
public debt with a US$1.5 billion unrated bank facility.

The CreditWatch listing reflects delayed filing of audited
financial statements as well as the need to restate results
dating back to fiscal 2003.  These issues stem from an array of
complex accounting issues at Navistar.  The company recently
said it expects to file its 10-K for the fiscal year ended
Oct. 31, 2005 -- including restated results for fiscal 2003 and
2004, and the first nine months of fiscal 2005 -- by the end of
September.  The company also said it expects to file its 2006
and 2007 10-Ks by the end of March 2008.

"Although Navistar is currently unable to provide audited
financial results, we believe that the company's profitability
and cash flow generation have declined this year because of the
U.S. heavy-duty truck downturn, which began in early 2007," said
S&P's credit analyst Gregg Lemos Stein.  "As was widely
expected, sales of such trucks softened because of new engine-
emissions standards that created a 'pre-buy' effect in 2006.
S&P's estimate that U.S. heavy-duty truck sales could be down as
much as 40% for 2007, with the possibility of a rebound by the
end of the year or in early 2008.  However, an economic decline
in addition to the pre-buy downturn would result in a sharper or
longer downturn, as was the case from 2001 to 2003."

While Navistar carries out its restatement process, S&P's will
continue to monitor these and other developments such as the
extent of the downturn, and will evaluate their impact on the
ratings.  S&P's expects that the ratings will remain on
CreditWatch until Navistar is current with all SEC
financial reporting requirements.  Once this occurs and if
Navistar's prospects are not materially different from previous
expectations, S&P's would expect to affirm the ratings.
However, S&P's could lower the ratings if new accounting issues
come to light that adversely affect Navistar's liquidity or
differ from S&P's expectations, or if financial results
deteriorate materially as a result of the downturn in the
heavy-duty truck market.

Based in Warrenville, Illinois, Navistar International Corp.
(NYSE:NAV) -- http://www.nav-international.com/-- is the parent
company of Navistar Financial Corp. and International Truck and
Engine Corp.  The company produces International brand
commercial trucks, mid-range diesel engines and IC brand school

ORIENTAL BANK: To Establish Insurance JV with Canara and HSBC
-------------------------------------------------------------
Oriental Bank of Commerce, Canara Bank and HSBC Insurance (Asia-
Pacific) Holdings Limited have signed a formal agreement to
jointly establish a life insurance company in India subject to
regulatory approval.

The new company Canara HSBC Oriental Bank of Commerce Life
Insurance Company Limited will have access to over 40 million
customers and a formidable nationwide distribution network of
over 4,000 branches throughout India.  While both Canara Bank
and Oriental Bank of Commerce offer an extensive client base,
complementary distribution networks and broad local market
knowledge, HSBC brings to this partnership its considerable
insurance experience, product range and proven bancassurance
capabilities.

Under the proposed agreement, Canara Bank will take a 51 per
cent stake in the new company, HSBC a 26 per cent interest and
Oriental Bank of Commerce the remaining 23 per cent.  The new
life insurance company will be capitalized at INR3,250 million
(approximately US$ 80million), of which HSBC will contribute
INR1,770 million (approximately US$43.6 million), Canara Bank
INR1,020 million (approximately US$25.1 million) and Oriental
Bank of Commerce INR 460 million (approximately US$11.3
million).  Under the terms of the agreement, HSBC will provide a
range of management services, which will include nominating
executives for certain senior roles.

Shri Alok K. Mishra, Chairman & Managing Director of Oriental
Bank of Commerce said: "The new life insurance business,
together with Canara and HSBC, will enable us to explore the
vast life insurance business opportunities available in this
progressive segment."

Dismally low life insurance penetration rates, a growing need
for social and old age security, strong GDP growth and the
expected rise in savings rates mean that the proposed new
company is bound to reap the benefits emerging from this unique
opportunity by offering tailor-made insurance products.
Oriental Bank of Commerce has already groomed a strong workforce
of 900 to support the bancassurance business through its 1,380
Core Banking service outlets, supported by a strong technology
platform.  Together with Canara Bank and HSBC, Oriental Bank of
Commerce is well poised to offer a vast range of market friendly
life insurance products at competitive pricing.

STATE BANK OF INDIA: Employees Oppose SBS Merger
------------------------------------------------

ALCATEL-LUCENT: To Expand Mobinil's Wireless Network in Egypt
-------------------------------------------------------------
Alcatel-Lucent disclosed a turnkey contract with Mobinil,
Egypt's leading mobile operator.  This multi-million euro
contract covers wireless and convergence solutions that will
further improve the quality of Mobinil's network and extend its
coverage throughout the country, bringing mobile services to a
greater number of people.

Alcatel-Lucent will expand and enhance Mobinil's wireless
network with the latest generation of Enhanced GSM radio
solutions, dramatically increasing data transfer speeds while
reducing operating expenses, helping the operator meet growing
demand for its services.  These solutions enable high
performance in a new compact design that offers Mobinil
exceptional flexibility in introducing new advanced multimedia
services on its existing radio access network, including the
expansion of its mobile Internet service.  The upgraded GSM
network will be operational by the end of the third quarter
2007.

"Rapidly evolving market conditions combined with the ongoing
introduction of innovative subscriber services and applications
dictate the need for a high degree of flexibility and
scalability in terms of our network infrastructure," said Alex
Shalaby of Mobinil.  "We are confident that with Alcatel-
Lucent's cutting-edge solutions and service support we are fully
prepared for future network evolutions, including the
introduction of 3G and WiMAX technologies."

"This agreement further confirms Mobinil's confidence in
Alcatel-Lucent's industry-leading solutions and service support
capabilities, and highlights the strong relationship our
companies have maintained since the establishment of the Mobinil
network in 1998," said Olivier Picard, President for Europe and
South.  "We will devote all our efforts to delivering the best-
in-class turnkey solution to Mobinil to help it enhance the high
quality of service it is committed to providing its subscribers.
This new contract reinforces Alcatel-Lucent's worldwide
leadership in mobile broadband and its leading position in the
Middle East market."

Under the terms of the contract, Alcatel-Lucent will provide its
end-to-end Enhanced GSM solution comprising the Base Station

Alcatel-Lucent will provide a range of services including
network management, architecture and design, technical support,
radio optimization and managed services.

In 2007 Alcatel-Lucent introduced a completely renovated
Enhanced GSM family of products designed to satisfy two formerly
conflicting demands: the need to address the ever-growing demand
for network capacity resulting from the explosion of voice and
data traffic in urban areas, and the need to expand coverage in
rural environments, primarily for lower income customers.  To
meet these needs, Alcatel-Lucent's evolutionary platforms have
been designed to dramatically reduce capital and operating
expenses for operators, while protecting their investments
through the ability to support more advanced, emerging
technologies in the future.

Alcatel-Lucent is a leading player in the GSM market with more
than 170 customers in more than 90 countries.

The company is also the world's leading manufacturer of
microwave transmission equipment, with more than one-half

METSO CORP: To Maintain ADR Facility Following Share Delisting
--------------------------------------------------------------
Metso Corp. (aka Metso Oyj) plans to maintain its American
Depositary Receipt facility, and following the delisting of its
American Depositary Shares is expected to be traded over-the-
counter in the United States.  Metso's ordinary shares will
continue to trade on the Helsinki Stock Exchange.  Metso's SEC-
registered debt securities are not listed.

On July 26, 2007, Metso's Board of Directors disclosed that it
has decided to apply for delisting of the company's ADSs, each
representing one ordinary share, from the New York Stock
Exchange in the United States, and pursuant to the newly-adopted
Rule 12h-6 under the U.S. Securities Exchange Act of 1934
deregister and terminate Metso's reporting obligations under the
Exchange Act regarding both its ADSs and SEC-registered debt
securities.

The Board authorized this action based on its assessment that
the reasons why the listing was originally sought in mid 1990's
are no longer valid since the capital markets have become more
global.  All investors of the ordinary shares and ADSs of Metso
are accorded protection by Metso's continued compliance with the
rules of the Helsinki Stock Exchange and other Finnish
regulations.

Metso expects to complete the delisting and deregistration
process during 2007.  Metso intends to file a Form 25 with the
SEC on Sept. 4, 2007 to terminate its Section 12(b) registration
under the Exchange Act and to delist from the NYSE.  Such
delisting will automatically take effect 10 days later.  Metso
also intends to file a Form 15F with the SEC on or about
Sept. 14, 2007 to terminate its Section 12(g) registration and
Section 13(a) and Section 15(d) reporting obligations under the
Exchange Act.  Upon the filing of Form 15F, Metso's reporting
obligations under the Exchange Act are immediately suspended and
a 90-day waiting period is triggered during which time the SEC
could object to the filing.  At the end of the 90-day waiting
period, such suspension becomes a termination, provided that the
SEC does not raise objections or the Form 15F is not earlier
withdrawn by Metso.  Metso reserves the right to delay the
filing of the Form 15F or withdraw the Form 15F for any reason
prior to its effectiveness.

In any case, Metso intends to continue voluntary SEC reporting
until December 2007 when its outstanding SEC-registered U.S.
bond matures.  From the termination of reporting obligations
onwards, Metso will continue to publish in English on its Web
site (http://www.metso.com)materials that are required to be
made public pursuant to Finnish law, or required to be publicly
filed with its primary trading market or required to be
distributed to security holders.

Metso has not arranged for the listing of its ADSs or ordinary
shares on another U.S. national securities exchange or for the
quotation of its ordinary shares in a quotation medium in the
United States.  However, Metso intends to maintain its ADR
facility relating to the ADSs with the Bank of New York and
intends to amend its Deposit Agreement with the Bank of New York
to reflect the deregistration.  Following the delisting, Metso's
ADSs are expected to be traded OTC in the United States.

                          About Metso

Headquartered in Helsinki, Finland, Metso Corp. aka Metso Oyj --
http://www.metso.com/-- is a global engineering and technology

TELKOMSEL: Fitch Affirms 'BB-' Currency Issuer Default Ratings
--------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia Tbk's
Long-term foreign and local currency Issuer Default Ratings at
'BB-'.  The rating Outlook is Positive.  As the Indonesian
government holds a 51.19% majority stake in the company, and
exerts significant influence on Telkom's major business and
financial decisions, the company's ratings remain closely
correlated with those of the sovereign.

Telkom's ratings reflect its diversified operations and leading
market positions across all segments of the Indonesian
telecommunications industry.  As at H107, the company had a
leading 58% market share in cellular services through 65%-owned
subsidiary PT Telekomunikasi Selular, a dominant share of fixed-
lines and a 65% share of the fast-growing fixed-wireless
segment.  Telkom's consolidated profile is heavily influenced by
its cellular business, which accounted for around 55% of revenue
and 65% of EBITDA in FY06.  Meanwhile, its fixed-line franchise
remains a significant contributor to earnings, and an important
source of positive free cash flow.  Fitch anticipates, at least
over the medium term, that mobile substitution pressures in the
fixed segment will be partially alleviated by ongoing strong
growth in fixed-wireless services.

Telkom has a robust financial profile; as at June 2007, net
adjusted leverage stood at 0.2x, a further improvement from 0.5x
at FYE05, with total adjusted debt to capitalization standing at
35.3%.  However, large capital investments and high dividend
payouts conspired to cut consolidated free cash flows
significantly in FY06, leading the free cash flow margin to
decline to 5.1% from 9.9% in the prior period.  Moreover, FCF
debt service coverage fell sharply to 0.6x in FY06 from 1.5x in
the prior period, reflecting lower FCF, as well as higher debt
maturities in 2007.  However, this increase in liquidity risk is
partly mitigated by Telkom's large cash reserves and strong
access to bank and capital market funding.

"With subsidiary Telkomsel continuing to invest heavily in
network expansion, Fitch anticipates the group incurring large
capex of approximately IDR20.0trn per annum over the next two
years, leading free cash flow to turn slightly negative based
upon current shareholder return levels," said Priya Gupta,
Director in Fitch's Asia-Pacific telecom, media and technology
team.  "As a result, Telkom's leverage metrics may experience
slight pressure over the next one or two years, but should
nevertheless remain strong for the ratings," added Ms. Gupta.

On account of the company's close linkage with the Indonesian
government, any positive or negative sovereign rating action
would likely lead to a corresponding rating action for Telkom.
Going forward, upward rating pressure would arise with reduction
of the government's stake below 50%.  Conversely, downward
pressure would arise with evidence of political interference
that triggers actions detrimental to the interests of creditors
or in the event of significant debt-funded acquisitions.

                          About Telkomsel

Based in Bandung, Indonesia, PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia Tbk --
http://www.telkom-indonesia.com/-- provides local and long
distance telephone service in Indonesia.  Known as Telkom, the
company also offers fixed wireless service, leased lines, and
data transport through affiliates.

MITSUBISHI MOTORS: AU Unit Faces Substantial Doubt Concern
----------------------------------------------------------
Mitsubishi Motors Australia's auditor has again highlighted
"significant uncertainty" whether the local car maker can
continue as a going concern, George Lekakis of the Herald Sun,
reports.

Mr. Lekakis quotes PricewaterhouseCoopers' statement in
Mitsubishi's audit report as saying, "There is significant
uncertainty whether the company will be able to continue as a
going concern and therefore whether it will realize its assets
and extinguish its liabilities in the normal course of business
and at the amounts stated in the financial report."

The directors of the Australian unit revealed in the filed
financial account to the Australian Securities and Investments
Commision, that it had a net current asset deficiency of
AU$168 million.  According to Mr. Lekakis, this revelation along
with the doubt about the future of Mitsubishi Australia caused
the company's auditors to make express the "significant
uncertainty" note.

According to Herald Sun, despite the automaker's deep cost
cutting and higher sales of imported cars, accounts for the year
to the end of March, the company posted a net loss of
AU$118 million.

Mitsubishi's Australian chief executive Robert McEniry, in a
written commentary attached to the latest accounts, claim that
weak export sales and special restructuring costs undermined the
bottom line.

The article quotes Mr. McEniry as saying, "The result was
hindered by a continued lack of vehicle exports and lower than
expected sales in the domestic market and continued
restructuring costs of AU$33.7 million.  Issues in the large
passenger vehicle segment were further exacerbated by fierce
competition between local manufacturers."

Feeling the impact of declining demand for locally-made large
passenger cars due to its limited export program, only 658
Mitsubishi of the locally-built 380 sedan were sold last month,
down 38% on the 1069 in August last year, writes Mr. Lekakis.

In a July 17, 2007 report by Troubled Company Reporter-Asia
Pacific, Mitsubishi had to close its Lonsdale factory cutting
670 jobs due to the sluggish sales of the 380 sedan.

Philippines, Indonesia, Malaysia, China and Australia.  Its
products are sold in over 170 countries.

The Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific reported on July 10,
2007, that Rating and Investment Infonrmation, Inc. has lifted
its issuer rating from 'B' to 'B+' with a stable outlook.  Also,
R&I affirmed its 'B' rating for its domestic commercial paper
program.  The upgrade in rating, according to the report, is due
to the fact that Mitsubishi Motors has been working to
restructure its operations since it announced its Mitsubishi
Motors Revitalization Plan in January 2005 and despite difficult
domestic market conditions caused by factors like shrinking
vehicle demand, Mitsubishi Motors has managed to leverage new
model introductions to gradually restore its earnings base.

companies in Hong Kong, Nagamas International (HK) Ltd and
Nagamas Enterprise (HK) Ltd, to undertake the new ventures and
was in talks with parties to set the plans into motion.

"We are still evaluating what is the best, either we will buy
over companies or enter joint ventures.  Whatever the most
profitable for us," he told the news agency after the unveiling
of the company's new corporate name.

Nagasmas executive officer KK Ng said the aviation services
included passenger and cargo airline, airport management
services and air charters.

AIR NEW ZEALAND: Unit to Acquire Two More Bombardier Aircraft
-------------------------------------------------------------
Air Nelson, Air New Zealand's wholly owned subsidiary, confirmed
yesterday that it would acquire two additional Bombardier Q300
aircraft to boost capacity into and out of Nelson and other
regional centers.

The purchase of the two new aircraft has been approved by the
Air New Zealand Board.

The list price for a 50-seat Bombardier Q300 is approximately
US$16 million.

The purchase will increase the airline's Q300 fleet to 23 by May
2009.  Air Nelson currently has 17 Q300 aircraft operating on
its regional network.  Its 18th Q300 was handed over to Air
Nelson in Montreal on Friday and will go into service next
month.

Air Nelson already has another three aircraft on order and
General Manager John Hambleton says he is delighted at the Air
New Zealand Board's continued confidence in the regional
airline's growth.

"By 2009, our capacity will have increased more than 40% on
current levels.  The two new aircraft will also provide us with
the flexibility to look at adding new routes to our already
extensive network," he says.

Mr Hambleton says the purchase is good news for Air Nelson
customers and the local economy, and reinforces Air New
Zealand's commitment to regional New Zealand.

"We expect to create about 50 new jobs over the next 18 months
to meet fleet growth, including roles for pilots, crew and
engineers," he says.

Air Nelson, which is a fully-owned subsidiary of Air New
Zealand, carries more than 500,000 customers into and out of
Nelson annually and contributes more than $20 million annually
in wages and contract services to the local economy.

       that are due under a compromise agreement, which was
       approved by the court, from the defendants to a civil
       case in which the company and its subsidiary were
       impleaded.

continued to have substantial working capital deficiency and
deficit.

                          *     *     *

As the Troubled Company Reporter reported on November 7, 2005,
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its 'B' corporate
credit rating to Avago Technologies Holdings Pte. Ltd.  The
outlook is positive.  At the same time, Avago's proposed US$975
million first-lien senior secured bank facility was rated 'B+'
with a recovery rating of '1', indicating a high expectation for
full recovery of principal in the event of a payment default.
Avago Technologies Finance Pte Ltd. And Luxembourg Finance Co.
are borrowers under the loan.  In addition, Standard & Poor's
assigned its 'B' rating to Avago's proposed US$375 million of
senior unsecured notes and US$375 million of senior unsecured
floating-rate notes.  Lastly, Avago's proposed US$250 million of
senior subordinated notes were assigned a 'CCC+' rating.  Avago
Technologies Finance Pte Ltd., Avago Technologies U.S. Inc., and
Avago Technologies Wireless Manufacturing Inc. are co-issuers of
the notes.


CKE RESTAURANTS: S&P Revises Outlook from Stable to Negative
------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services revised its outlook on
Carpenteria, Calif.-based CKE Restaurants Inc. to negative from
stable.  At the same time, S&P affirmed all the ratings,
including the 'BB-' corporate credit rating, on the company.

S&P also affirmed the bank loan and recovery ratings on CKE's
US$470 million senior secured credit facility, which consists of
a US$270 million term loan and US$200 million revolving credit
facility.  The company recently increased the size of its term
loan by US$100 million to US$270 million, with a maturity in
2013, and used the proceeds to pay down borrowings on the
company's revolving credit facility that matures in 2012.  The
credit facility is rated 'BB+', two notches higher than the
corporate credit rating on CKE, with a recovery rating of '1',
indicating the expectation of very high (90%-100%) recovery of
principal in the event of default.

The outlook change reflects the CKE's recent use of debt to fund
share repurchases.  For example, in April of this year, the
company purchased approximately US$77 million of its stock from
Pirate Capital LLC.  The negative outlook reflects management's
willingness to fund share repurchases with debt and a recent
trend of narrower margins.  "If debt leverage were to increase
measurably because of poor operating performance or further
debt-financed share repurchases, we would likely lower the
ratings," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Charles Pinson-
Rose.

Headquartered in Carpinteria, California, CKE Restaurants Inc.
(NYSE: CKR) -- http://www.ckr.com/-- through its subsidiaries,
franchisees and licensees, operates some of the most popular
U.S. regional brands in quick-service and fast-casual dining,

than 3,000 locations in 43 states and in 13 countries, including
Singapore.  As of the end of its fiscal 2008 first quarter ended
May 21, 2007, through its subsidiaries, had a total of 3,022
franchised, licensed or company-operated restaurants in 43
states and in 13 countries, including 1,101 Carl's Jr.
restaurants and 1,905 Hardee's restaurants.

FLEXTRONICS: Sets Merger Consideration Voting Until Sept. 27
------------------------------------------------------------
Solectron Corporation's stockholders that wish to make an
election with respect to the merger consideration to be received
in the proposed acquisition by Flextronics International Ltd. of
Solectron must deliver a completed election form to
Computershare Shareholder Services Inc. by 5:00 p.m., New York
City time, on Sept. 27, 2007.

Solectron stockholders who hold their shares through a bank,
broker or other nominee may have an election deadline earlier
than the Election Deadline.  These Solectron stockholders should
review any materials they receive from their bank, broker or
other nominee to determine the election deadline applicable to
them.

Pursuant to the terms of the merger agreement, Solectron
stockholders are entitled to elect to receive either 0.3450 of a
Flextronics ordinary share or $3.89 in cash, without interest,
for each share of Solectron common stock, subject to proration
as provided in the merger agreement.

Solectron stockholders who do not make a timely election or fail
to deliver a properly completed election form to Computershare
Shareholder Services Inc. by the Election Deadline will not be
able to elect the form of merger consideration they will receive
in the merger.

These non-electing stockholders will receive all cash, all
Flextronics ordinary shares or a combination of cash and
Flextronics ordinary shares according to the allocation rules
set forth in the merger agreement.

If, after submitting its election form, a Solectron stockholder
wishes to sell or otherwise transfer some or all of the shares
covered by its election, the stockholder will have to revoke its
election in order to deliver the shares to the purchaser or
other transferee.

Such revocation must be received by Computershare Shareholder
Services Inc. prior to the Election Deadline.  A Solectron
stockholder may revoke its election and submit a new election
for shares it does not sell or otherwise transfer.

Such election must be received by Computershare Shareholder
Services Inc. prior to the Election Deadline.  Because a
Solectron stockholder may revoke its election only prior to the
Election Deadline, after the Election Deadline and prior to the
effective time of the merger such stockholder will not be able
to sell or otherwise transfer shares for which an election
is effective as of the Election Deadline.

Beginning Aug. 13, 2007, the required election forms and
accompanying instructions were mailed to Solectron stockholders
of record as of Aug. 6, 2007.  Solectron stockholders, including
those that acquired their shares after Aug. 6, 2007, may request
copies of these election documents by calling Innisfree M&A
Incorporated toll free from within the United States and Canada
at (877) 825-8971.

Solectron stockholders who hold their shares through a bank,
broker or other nominee should contact their bank, broker or
other nominee to obtain additional copies of the election
documents.

As provided by the merger agreement, exchangeable shares of
Solectron Global Services Canada Inc., other than exchangeable
shares owned by Solectron, any of its subsidiaries or their
affiliates, will be automatically exchanged for shares of
Solectron common stock, on a one-for-one basis, prior to the
effective time of the merger.

The merger agreement provides that holders of exchangeable
shares will be entitled to elect to receive the same
consideration in the merger, and to participate in the merger,
as a holder of shares of Solectron common stock.  Therefore,
references to Solectron stockholders are intended to also
include holders of exchangeable shares.

Flextronics and Solectron also disclosed that the companies have
satisfied merger control requirements in Canada, China, the
European Union, Mexico, Turkey, Ukraine and the United States.
Merger control notifications remain pending in Brazil and
Singapore, but neither affects the parties' ability to close the
transaction.

"Assuming a successful shareholder vote for both companies,
which is scheduled for Sept. 27, 2007, we now expect to close
this transaction on Oct. 1, 2007," Thomas J. Smach, chief
financial officer of Flextronics, stated.

ISOFT GROUP: Providing Laboratory IT Systems to Malta Hospital
--------------------------------------------------------------
iSOFT Group plc has been appointed as sub-contractor to
Affiliated Computer Services, Inc. to provide and support
laboratory information systems at Malta's largest hospital, the
new 850-bed Mater Dei Hospital.  Malta Information Technology
and Training Services has also extended its 12-year relationship
with iSOFT for an upgrade of the current patient administration
system.

The seven-year contract with ACS Healthcare Solutions includes
iSOFT's laboratory information system (i.Laboratory), which will
be installed as part of a program to improve the management of
health records and integrate state-of-the-art digital medical
equipment.

"With i.Laboratory, we will deliver an integrated, multi-
disciplinary solution to track orders, samples and results from
microbiology, pathology, biochemistry and transfusion services.
It is a well-established solution that is proven at 150 U.K.
hospitals," Charles Bracken, managing director, ACS Healthcare
Solutions, said.

Dallas, Texas-based ACS has a seven-year contract with the
Government of Malta to improve the efficiency of delivery of
healthcare and recording of patient information.  It is
providing hardware, software and expertise needed to maintain a
laboratory information system, radiology information system, and
picture archiving and communications system.  The company will
integrate these systems with the Mater Dei's existing systems.
iSOFT has also renewed its existing contract in Malta, which was
signed with MITTS in January 2004.  This is for order
communications at the new Mater Dei Hospital and will enable
laboratory tests and x-rays to be ordered online and the results
viewed in real time as part of the medical record.

                          About iSOFT

Headquartered in Manchester, United Kingdom, iSOFT Group plc
-- http://www.isoftplc.com/-- supplies advanced medical
software applications for the healthcare sector.  Its products
are used by more than 8,000 organizations in 27 countries for
managing patient information and driving improvements in
healthcare services.  In international markets, the group has a
strong presence in the Asia-Pacific, including Singapore and
India.

                            *   *   *

In June 2006 iSOFT revealed a change in accounting policy for
revenue recognition, as a consequence of which it became
necessary to review and restate revenues in prior years.
Arising out of that review a number of possible accounting
irregularities came to light in which it appears that some
revenues reported in the financial years ended April 30, 2004
and 2005 may have been recognized earlier than they should have
been.

On July 20, 2006 the Group engaged its auditors, Deloitte &
Touche LLP, to conduct a formal initial investigation into these
possible irregularities.  In August 2006 it was confirmed that
there were indeed matters that needed further investigation and
we handed over relevant documents to the Financial Services
Authority (FSA), which is now conducting that investigation.
The Group is working closely and cooperatively with the FSA in
order to complete the investigation as quickly as possible.

On Oct. 25, 2006 the Accountancy Investigation and Discipline
Board (AIDB) announced that it will conduct its own
investigation.  The AIDB investigation is a review of the
conduct of those members of accountancy bodies that are
regulated by the AIDB who were executive or non-executive
directors of iSOFT during the relevant periods, and RSM Robson
Rhodes LLP, iSOFT's auditor for the financial years ended April
30, 2003, 2004 and 2005.

All current executive directors of iSOFT who are members of
those accountancy bodies were appointed after the dates under
investigation, as was the non-executive director who is
currently chairman of the audit committee.  The initial
investigation into possible accounting irregularities conducted
by Deloitte & Touche LLP in July and August 2006 did not uncover
evidence that any of the current non-executive directors had any
knowledge of the irregularities.

At the present time the Group has no indication of when either
the FSA or the AIDB intend to conclude their investigations and
report.  On the basis of information that has come to light so
far, the directors consider that the restatement of revenues in
the financial statements for the year ended April 30, 2006
corrected, where appropriate, the impact of these particular
matters.  As the investigation is not yet concluded, it is not
possible for the Board to finally determine what implications,
if any, may arise from the conclusion of the investigations into
these matters.  Nevertheless they must be thoroughly
investigated and the Group will continue to cooperate with both
organizations.

                      Going Concern Doubt

At April 30, 2007, in preparing their cash flow projections,
iSOFT's directors recognize that there are material
uncertainties that may cast significant doubt on the Group's
ability to continue as a going concern.

The nature of the Group's business is such that there can be
considerable unpredictable variation and uncertainty regarding
the timing and margin on sales, the quantum and timing of cash
flows from new business activity and the achievement of
contractual milestones.  In addition, until the proposed
CompuGROUP transaction legally completes, the successful
completion of the transaction (including shareholder and court
approval) and ongoing willingness and ability of CompuGROUP to
provide financial support to the Group remain uncertainties.
Should the transaction not proceed, it would be necessary to
extend or renegotiate the Group's banking agreements beyond
their current expiry date of Nov. 14, 2007.

-------------------------------------------------------------

of THB15 billion for the whole year despite the economic
downturn, the Bangkok Post reports.

Bangkok Post cites KTB President Apisak Tantivorawong as saying
that sales in the first eight months of 2007 totaled
THB5 billion, and that the bank would divest another
THB5 billion in non-performing assets to Bangkok Commercial

relates.

"Krung Thai Bank will try to maintain non-performing assets at
40 billion baht at the end of the year.  We are arranging new
marketing and promotional campaigns for NPA sales to help boost
results," Bangkok Post quotes Mr. Apisak.

Mr. Apisak further said that KTB's non-performing loans, now at
more than 7% of total loans, were expected to remain unchanged
through the end of the year.

KTB announced on Tuesday an NPA Grand Sale at its headquarters,
with more than 10,000 properties offered for sale at discounts
up to 40%, Bangkok Post adds.

Headquartered in Bangkok, Thailand, Krung Thai Bank Public

on March 14, 1966, through the merger of business between the

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.
