CYPRESS LAKES: Will Likely Collapse if Proposed Rights Issue Fails
------------------------------------------------------------------
The likelihood of an administration or receivership awaits Cypress
Lakes Group Limited if its second biggest shareholder succeeded in
its bid to stop the proposed rights issue, the Australian reports.

According to the report, Cypress Lakes said Singaporean food and
property company Amoy, which holds 33.4 per cent stake in Cypress,
had objected to the terms of the proposed AU$6.4 million rights
issue.

Amoy, the Australian relates, demanded Cypress Lakes withdraw the
20-for-1 issue, which could give rival Singaporean investor
Lasseters up to 96 per cent of the company depending on the take-
up by other shareholders.  Lasseters owns 52 per cent of Cypress
Lakes shares.

"If the rights issue is materially delayed or withdrawn, in the
absence of an alternative proposal, it is likely that the company
will be forced into administration or receivership, in which case
there is unlikely to be any surplus for shareholders," the report
cited Cypress Lakes in a statement.

The report notes Lasseters is expected to take up its full
entitlement to the issue and provide continuing financial support
to the group while Amoy has not indicated whether it will take up
its entitlement.

Cypress Lakes, as cited by the report, said it needs between
AU$4 million and AU$6.4 million in cash "to continue trading and
be in a position to restructure its debt obligations", estimated
at AU$30 million.

Cypress Lakes Group Limited (ASX:CLK) --
http://www.cypresslakes.com.au/-- is an Australia-based company.
The principal activities of the company, along with its
subsidiaries, are operator of Cypress Lakes Resort and The Golden
Door Health Retreats and Spas, as well as that of property owner
and developer.  It operates in two business segments: Tourism &
Leisure, and Health Retreat & Spas. Tourism & Leisure segment
comprises two businesses: Cypress Lakes Resort Villa Hotel and
Cypress Lakes Golf and Country Club.  The Hotel comprises some 160
leased villas and central facilities.  The Club has been
established for 16 years and boasts a championship golf course.
Health Retreat & Spas segment comprises two health retreats: the
Golden Door at Willow Vale in Queensland and the Golden Door
Health Retreat Elysia in Hunter Valley in New South Wales.  The
Willow Vale property provides for a program for up to 55 guests
per week.  The Elysia retreat also offers a weekly program for
guests.


STORM FINANCIAL: ASIC Applies to Wind Up Firm
---------------------------------------------
The Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) has
urgently applied to the Federal Court to put Storm Financial
Limited into liquidation, the Herald Sun reports.

The corporate regulator, Herald Sun relates, said its application
was triggered by "misleading" information this week from Storm co-
founders Emmanuel and Julie Cassimatis, who want creditors to back
their deed of company arrangement scheme.

According to the report, ASIC alleges that the deed is "complex"
and has far-reaching impacts involving future litigation and the
release of liability of company directors.

ASIC, as cited by the report, said its case "raises the issue of
whether the (deed) is so flawed that it could ever be in the
interests of creditors and whether creditors could be expected to
make an informed choice".

The report says the Federal Court adjourned the meeting of
creditors, which was due to be held in Brisbane on Monday,
March 23 until March 30 and has fixed ASIC's application for a
full hearing on March 24.

                       About Storm Financial

Storm Financial Limited -- http://www.stormfinancial.com.au/--
operates in the Australian wealth management industry that manages
over one trillion dollars in investment fund assets for over nine
million investors, distributed through investment administration
providers and financial advisers.  These funds are invested
through different investment products and structures, including
superannuation, nonsuperannuation managed funds and life insurance
products.  Non-superannuation managed funds, which form the
majority of Storm's products, total approximately 26.5% of total
investment fund assets in Australia, as of June 30, 2007.

                          *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific on
Jan. 14, 2009, Storm appointed Worrells as voluntary
administrators after the Commonwealth Bank of Australia Ltd (CBA)
demanded debt repayment of around AU$20 million.

Storm later closed its business and fired all of its 115 staff.

The closure, the company's administrators said, was due to the
significant reduction in Storm's income resulting in trading
losses being incurred "at a rate which the company could no longer
absorb."

The TCR-AP, citing Sydney Morning Herald, reported on Jan. 22,
2009, that the Commonwealth Bank of Australia, Storm's largest
creditor, lodged a AU$27.09 million debt claim at a first meeting
of the company's creditors on January 20.

According to the Herald, Administrators Worrells Solvency &
Forensic Accountants said the group's remaining creditors are owed
AU$51 million, plus a provision for dividends of AU$10 million.


TERRITORY RESOURCES: Posts $33.34 Mln. Half Year Loss
-----------------------------------------------------
Territory Resources Limited reported a net loss after tax of
$33.34 million for the half year ended December 31, 2008.  The
loss includes $38.097 million in asset impairtments and one-off
items associated with the company's foreign exchange hedge book
and external investments including Matilda Minerals Limited, which
overshadowed an otherwise positive first half performance by
Territory's iron ore operations.

Before including the provisions, the company posted an underlying
profit of $4.76 million (2007: $2.037 million), which was based on
sales revenue of $65.5 million for the first half (2007: $28.8
million).  This reflected the significant operational improvements
and enhancements at its 100% owned Frances Creek Iron Ore Mine in
the Northern Territory.

Territory's Chairman Andrew Simpson said “While it is
disappointing to record another significant loss, it is important
to emphasize the operational improvements achieved at France Creek
which resulted in an underlying profit for the period in review.
Our core business has operated successfully despite the severe
financial and economic storms that were unleashed during this
period, including sharp fall in iron ore prices, which impacted on
all producers.”

The one-off items not related to operations include foreign
exchange losses of $13.4 million, a $15.1 million impairment
charge associated with the foreign exchange hedge book, as well as
an $8.7 million impairment of Territory's investment in Matilda
Minerals Limited, Matrix Metals Limited and Nortern Mining
Limited.

The net loss after tax of $33.34 million, which compares with a
net profit of $2.04 million for the previous corresponding half,
translates to a loss per share of 12.6 cents.  Total sales revenue
for the half year was $65.5 million (2007: $28.8 million), with
production costs of $56.9 million (including Depreciation and
Amortization charges of $9.5 million).

The first half result was based on production of 796,000 tonnes of
high-grade lump and fines ore, with the Frances Creek operation
completing shipments totalling 1.395 million tonnes of product
through the Port of Darwin from start-up through Dec. 31, 2008.

Territory said it is continuing discussions with its financiers
with a view to implementing alternative, long-term debt
arrangements to replace its existing hedge and loan facilities.
With the support of its hedge facility provider and Nobler Group,
the company expects to achieve a satisfactory resolution in the
near-term.

VENTRACOR LIMITED: Calls in Voluntary Administrators
----------------------------------------------------
Ventracor Limited said the company has been placed into voluntary
administration as it has not been able to attract sufficient
capital to fund its operations through to June 30, 2009.

Ventracor said “the company has approached over 130 potential
investors in Australia, US and Europe over a period of more than a
year.  In addition, a share purchase plan offer was made to
shareholders, but did not attract sufficient capital.”

Chairman John Ward said "The Board shares with shareholders a deep
sense of sadness and regret that Ventracor has been placed into
voluntary administration.”

“The Board has decided that it is in best interests of the company
that an administrator be appointed now, at a time when the company
remains solvent," Mr. Ward said in a statement.

The company has appointed Steven Sherman and John Gothard of
Ferrier Hodgson as administrators.

Meanwhile, The Australian recalls that in February, Ventracor
defended its decision to keep quiet about the deaths of three
patients who have since been linked to its failed heart pumps.

The report relates that Ventracor, whose VentrAssist device is
subject to a safety investigation by the Therapeutics Goods
Administration, issued a statement at the time that advised it had
been “in full compliance with its obligation to make continuous
disclosure” under the Australian Securities Exchange listing
rules.

The company's shares have been suspended from trading since early
February, when it reported to the TGA that there had been 11
adverse events associated with its device, according to the
Australian.

Deposit Insurance Corporation will provide protection against the
possibility of unusually large losses on an asset pool of
approximately $306 billion of loans and securities backed by
residential and commercial real estate and other such assets,

arrangement, Citigroup will issue preferred shares to the Treasury
and FDIC.  In addition and if necessary, the Federal Reserve will
backstop residual risk in the asset pool through a non-recourse
loan.

BANK OF AMERICA: Buys Merrill’s Remaining Stake in India Unit
-------------------------------------------------------------
MC Govardhana Rangan at Bloomberg News reports Bank of America
Corp. bought the 10 percent it doesn’t already own of DSP Merrill
Lynch Ltd. from the Indian unit’s founder, Chairman Hemendra
Kothari, who will leave the firm on March 31.

BofA subsequently appointed local President Kevan Watts as head of
its combined operations in the country, the report says.

Vishwavir Ahuja, who heads Bank of America’s Indian operations,
will lead the corporate banking business of the combined entity, a
Merrill spokeswoman, speaking on condition of anonymity, told
Bloomberg News.

I G PETROCHEMICALS: CRISIL Cuts Ratings on Bank Loans to 'BB+'
--------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has downgraded its ratings on I G Petrochemicals Ltd’s
(IGP’s) bank facilities to ‘BB+/Negative/P4’ from
‘BBB-/Stable/P3’.

   Rs.40 Million Cash Credit         BB+/Negative (Downgraded from
                                                   ‘BBB-/Stable’)

   Rs.10 Million Proposed Long-      BB+/Negative (Downgraded from
      Long-Term Bank Facilities                   ‘BBB-/Stable’)

   Rs.40 Million Export Packing  P4 (Downgraded from ‘P3’)
          Credit Facility

   Rs.730 Million Letter of Credit   P4 (Downgraded from ‘P3’)
          and Bank Guarantee  

   Rs.180 Million Proposed Short-    P4 (Downgraded from ‘P3’)
          Term Bank Facilities  

The downgrade reflects CRISIL’s expectations of sustained pressure
on IGP’s cash accruals due to decline in demand for Phthalic
anhydride (PAN), coupled with high interest and finance charges,
leading to deterioration in its debt protection measures.  The
pressure on IGP’s debt servicing ability is reflected in the fact
that the company, in December 2008, rescheduled its term loan from
Bank of America.  During the nine months ended December 2008, the
company had a low interest coverage ratio of about 1.2 times and
net cash accruals to total debt ratio of about 8 per cent.

The ratings reflect IGP’s weak financial risk profile, high
dependence on a single product and a single supplier, intense
competition in the PAN industry leading to slowdown in capacity
utilisation.  These weaknesses are mitigated by the company’s
sound operating efficiency.

Outlook: Negative

CRISIL believes that IGP’s financial performance is highly
vulnerable to the competitive nature of the global PAN industry.
Slowdown in the demand from end-user industries is expected to
result in excess capacities globally, leading to pressure on
margins.  The ratings could be downgraded further in case of a
significant pressure on the company’s debt servicing measures or
discontinuance of the provisional safeguard duty of 25 per cent
after August 2009.  Conversely, the outlook may be revised to
‘Stable’ in case of a significant improvement in IGP’s business
risk profile.

                    About I G Petrochemicals

IGP was promoted in 1988 by the Dhanuka family in financial and
technical collaboration with Lurgi AG, Germany, as a 100 per cent
exported-oriented unit (EOU) to manufacture and market PAN.  IGP
commenced operations in 1993, with a 45,000-tonnes per annum (tpa)
facility at Taloja, Maharashtra.  After being under the purview of
the Board for Industrial and Financial Reconstruction (BIFR), the
company had successfully restructured its debt obligations with
all banks and was de-registered from BIFR in June 2006.
Currently, the total installed capacity stands at 110,000 tpa, and
the company has got itself converted to a domestic unit from a 100
per cent EOU.  For the nine months ended December 31, 2008, IGP
registered net sales of Rs.4312.9 million and net loss of Rs.63.7
million, as against net sales of Rs.4355.3 million and a profit
after tax of Rs.267.9 million during the corresponding period of
the previous year.


KANERIA GRANITO: Loan Payment Default Spurs CRISIL “D” Ratings
--------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has downgraded its ratings on the bank facilities of
Kaneria Granito Ltd (Kaneria Granito) to ‘D/P5’ from
‘BB+/Negative/P4’, as the company is currently in default in
servicing its term loans and interest payments to Bank of India.

   Rs.570 Million Rupee Term Loan       D (Downgraded from
                                          ‘BB+/Negative’)

   Rs.162 Million Cash Credit     D (Downgraded from
                                          ‘BB+/Negative’)

   Rs.105 Million Letter of Credit/    P5 (Downgraded from ‘P4’)
                    Bank Guarantee

The company has delayed its loan servicing to State Bank of India
by more than 1 month.

KR ANAND: CRISIL Rates Rs.100 Mln Cash Credit Limit at 'C'
----------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its ratings of ‘C/P4’ to the various bank
facilities of KR Anand.

   Rs.100 Million Cash Credit Limit      C (Assigned)
   Rs.650 Million Bank Guarantee         P4 (Assigned)

The ratings reflect instances of delay in repayment of term loans
for equipments owing to weak liquidity.  The ratings also reflect
KR Anand’s exposure to risks relating to geographic concentration
in revenues, and delays in execution of large projects due to
government regulations.

                         About KR Anand

KR Anand was started as a proprietorship firm by Mr. Kapil Raj
Anand in 1974.  The firm undertakes land development works
including earth filling, trunk water supply, projects of urban

(refers to financial year, April 1 to March 31), as against a book

2006-07.


MANTRI METALLICS: Debt Servicing Delays Prompt CRISIL “C” Ratings
-----------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its ratings of ‘C/D/P4’ to the bank facilities
of Mantri Metallics Pvt Ltd (Mantri Metallics).

   Rs.174.9 Million Long Term Loan        D (Assigned)
                     - Kagal unit
   Rs.105.3 Million Other Long Term       C (Assigned)
                     Loans *
   Rs.225.0 Million Cash Credit           C (Assigned)
   Rs.30.0 Million Line of Credit         C (Assigned)
   Rs.70.0 Million Letter of Credit **    P4 (Assigned)

   * Includes proposed Rs. 76.0 Million.
   ** Letter of Credit is interchangeable with Bank Guarantee.

The ratings reflect delays in debt servicing by the company.

The delays followed inadequate accruals because of the impact of
the slowdown in the automobile industry, and large interest
obligations that are a result of debt-funded capital expenditure
of approximately Rs.350 million in 2007-08 (refers to financial
year, April 1 to March 31), which was incurred for setting up
manufacturing facilities at Kagal, Maharashtra and Pantnagar in
Uttaranchal.  The company has requested rescheduling of its debt
obligations; this request is under consideration by the bank.

                     About Mantri Metallics

Kolhapur, Maharashtra–based Mantri Metallics was promoted by Mr
Purushottam Mantri in 1995.  The company started operations with a
single foundry having an induction furnace capacity of 2,400
tonnes per annum.  The company expanded its manufacturing
facilities and presently has an induction furnace capacity of
26,400 tonnes per annum, and machine shops with many computer
numerical controlled (CNC) and dynamic balancing machines.

The company’s product portfolio consists of automotive components
such as flywheel assemblies, exhaust manifolds, brake drums, and
housing and bearing caps.  Although, Mantri Metallics caters
primarily to automotive industry, it also manufactures engineering
goods such as rocker housing, NH adaptor housing and intermediate
housing.  The company’s major customers in the domestic market
include Tata Motors Limited (rated ‘A/Stable/P1’ by CRISIL), Ashok
Leyland Limited (‘AA-/Negative/P1+’), Spicer India Limited and
Simpson & Co Ltd , while its key clients in the export market
include John Deere Ltd (rated ‘A-1’ by Standard & Poors’),
Motorenfabrik Hatz GmbH and Venture Products Inc.  The Company
recently acquired orders from customers for supplying parts to
General Motors India Ltd, Hyundai Motor India Ltd (rated ‘P1+’ by

Rs.15.3 million (Rs.38.2 million in the previous year) on net

SLN COFFEE: CRISIL Reaffirms Ratings on Various Bank Facilities
---------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has reaffirmed its ratings of ‘B/Stable/P4’ to the bank
facilities of SLN Coffee (P) Ltd (SLN).

   Rs.180 Million Cash Credit Limit     B/Stable
     (Enhanced from Rs.150 Million)

   Rs.260 Million Term Loan               B/Stable
    (Enhanced from Rs.190 Million)

   Rs.60 Million Bills Receivables         P4 (Reaffirmed)
                 Discounting

   Rs.350 Million Packing Credit         P4
        (Enhanced from Rs.135 Million)

The ratings reflect SLN’s weak financial risk profile, marked by
high gearing and weak debt protection measures.  Further, the
ratings are constrained by low operating margins, susceptibility
to fluctuations in coffee prices and foreign exchange
fluctuations.  These weaknesses are mitigated by SLN’s established
presence in the domestic coffee trading market.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that SLN will maintain its established business
profile, backed by strong demand for coffee beans and additional
revenues from the instant coffee business.  The outlook may be
revised to ‘Positive’ if the company scales up its operations and
realises better margins.  Conversely, the outlook may be revised
to ‘Negative’ if there is a decline in margins, or if the company
incurs more-than-expected debt-funded capital expenditure, leading
to further deterioration in its capital structure and debt
protection measures.

                       About SLN Coffee (P)

Incorporated in 2004, SLN is a closely-held company engaged in the
business of coffee trading and manufacturing instant coffee.  SLN
is managed by S Narayanan, N Viswanathan and Satthappan, who have
vast experience in this business.  The company sells its
merchandise in both domestic and export markets.  It has an in-
house curing and processing facility with a capacity of 25,000
tonnes per annum.  In October 2008, the company commissioned a
plant with a capacity of 3,600 tonnes per annum of instant coffee,
in the industrial area of Kushalanagar, Karnataka.

For 2007-08 (refers to financial year, April 1 to March 31), SLN
reported a profit after tax (PAT) of Rs.25 million on net sales of
Rs.3.0 billion, as against a PAT of Rs.17 million on net sales of
Rs.2.4 billion in the previous year.


VELANKANI INFRA: CRISIL Assigns 'BB' Rating on Rs.50MM Cash Credit
------------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its ratings of ‘BB/Negative/P4’ to the various
bank facilities of Velankani Infrastructure and Projects Pvt Ltd
(VIPPL).

   Rs.50.00 Million Cash Credit       BB/Negative (Assigned)
   Rs.50.00 Million Bank Guarantee    P4 (Assigned)

The ratings reflect VIPPL’s small scale of operations, and limited
geographical diversity and track record. These weaknesses are,
however, partially offset by VIPPL’s healthy order book, and
above-average financial risk profile.

Outlook: Negative

CRISIL’s ‘Negative’ outlook on VIPPL reflects the current slowdown
in the domestic construction sector.  The ratings may be
downgraded if VIPPL encounters delay in projects, or suspension of
projects by customers, or if the company’s financial risk profile
deteriorates on account of large working capital requirements.
The outlook may be revised to ‘Stable’ if the company is able to
expand its order book and diversify its customer base to entities
outside the Velankani group.

                  About Velankani Infrastructure

Established in 2000, as Caliber Construction Company Pvt Ltd by
Mr. Kiron Shah, VIPPL got its current name in February 2008.
VIPPL is engaged in construction of special economic zones (SEZs),
hotels, and industrial and residential buildings.  The company is
part of the Velankani group, which has diverse business interests,
including software services, construction, real estate, and SEZ
development.  For 2007-08 (refers to financial year, April 1 to
March 31), VIPPL reported a profit after tax (PAT) of Rs.8 million
on net sales of Rs.223 million, as against a PAT of Rs.15 million
on net sales of Rs.390 million for 2006-07.


VELANKANI TECHNOLOGY: CRISIL Rates Rs.1300MM Long Term Loan at 'B'
------------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its rating of ‘B/Negative’ to the term loan
facility of Velankani Technology Parks Pvt Ltd (VTPPL).

   Rs.1300.00 Million Long Term Loan    B/Negative (Assigned)

The rating reflects VTPPL’s exposure to risks relating to project
implementation, and lack of revenue visibility.  These weaknesses
are, however, partially offset by the benefits that VTPPL derives
from the locational advantages of its park.

Outlook: Negative

The ‘Negative’ outlook reflects the uncertainty in VTPPL’s cash
flows in the absence of lease agreements, and the company’s
exposure to risks relating to the ongoing economic slowdown.  The
ratings may be revised downwards if VTPPL faces delay in
commencement of operations.  Conversely, the outlook may be
revised to ‘Stable’ if VTPPL is able to tie up tenants for the
first phase of the project, and grant timely occupation to
tenants.

                   About Velankani Technology

VTPPL is setting up an “Electronic Hardware Manufacturing and
ITES” Special Economic Zone (SEZ) at Sriperumbudur close to NH4 in
Tamil Nadu at a total capex of Rs.1.35 billion.  The SEZ project
is proposed to be constructed in 5 phases totalling 29 blocks
(buildings) and other common amenities/facilities spread over 265
acres.  Phase I consisting of a built-up area of 497,088 sq ft is
expected to be completed by May-June 2009.  VTPPL is part of the
Velankani group, which has diverse business interests, including
software services, construction, real estate, and SEZ development.

BAKRIE & BROTHERS: Gets Reprieve on ICPL and Skybird Debts
----------------------------------------------------------
PT Bakrie & Brothers Tbk has signed an agreement with creditors
Interventures Capital Pte. Ltd. (ICPL) and Skybird Ventures Ltd.
to restructure promissory notes worth IDR1.4 trillion
(US$117.6 million) due to mature on July 5 this year, Jakarta
Globe reports citing the notice sent by Bakrie & Brothers to the
Capital Market and Financial Institutions Supervisory Agency
(Bapepam-LK).

Under the program, the old notes have been replaced by new notes,
which will mature on March 12, 2011, the report adds.

The notes carry an interest rate of 19%, the report relates.

According to the report, the promissory notes were initially
issued to Long Haul Holdings Ltd. and PT Brantas Indonesia,
shareholders of Bumi Resources and Brantas Indonesia,
respectively.

On March 10, the notes were sold by Long Haul Holdings and Brantas
to Interventures and Skybird, the report says.

As of September, the company’s bond debt amounted to
IDR2.1 trilllion, The Jakarta Globe recounts.

                        About PT Bakrie

PT Bakrie & Brothers Tbk is an Indonesia-based group of companies.
It is engaged in general trading, steel pipe manufacturing,
building materials and construction products, telecommunications
systems, electronic and electrical goods and equity investments.

switching, telecommunication system integrators, telephone sets,
electric resistance-welded steel pipes, longitudinal steel pipes,

MOBILE-8 TELECOM: Pefindo Downgrades IDR675 Bil. Bond to “idD”
--------------------------------------------------------------
PT Pemeringkat Efek Indonesia (Pefindo) downgraded the ratings of
PT Mobile 8 Telecom Tbk. and  the company’s Bond I/2007 of
IDR675 billion to “idD” (Default).

Previously, the company’s corporate rating was “idSD” (Selective
Default) while its IDR bond rating was “idCCC”.  At the same time,
Pefindo removed the ratings from the Creditwatch with Negative
Implication status.  The rating action was taken as the company
failed to fulfill the interest payment of the IDR bond in the
amount of IDR20.88 billion due on March 16, 2009.

Pefindo will continue to monitor the company’s plan to settle this
and future financial obligations.

Established in 2002 and operating commercially since the launch of
its pre-paid services in 2003, PT Mobile-8 Tbk is the fourth
largest mobile cellular operator in Indonesia.  It operates in the
800 MHz spectrum on a CDMA2000 1X platform.  The company reported
net revenues of IDR867 billion (approximately US$80 million) for
the 12-month period ending Sept. 30, 2008.


PT PERUSAHAAN: Fitch Upgrades Issuer Default Ratings to 'BB'
------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has upgraded PT Perusahaan Gas Negara's Long-term
foreign and local currency Issuer Default Ratings to 'BB' from
'BB-' (BB minus) and affirmed its National Long-term rating at
'AA(idn)'.  The Outlook is Stable.  Fitch has also upgraded PGN
Euro Finance 2003 Limited's US$125m notes due in 2014 and US$150m
notes due in 2013, guaranteed by PGN and its subsidiaries, to 'BB'
from 'BB-' (BB minus).

The upgrade reflects PGN's improved financial and operating
profiles and Fitch's expectation that the company will continue to
sustain moderate credit metrics.  With the completion of the South
Sumatra - West Java pipeline in August 2008 and the expected
completion of the West Java distribution projects in 2010
(initially planned for 2009), the company's operating cash flow
and financial profile will be supported by additional cash inflow
brought by higher distribution volumes.

Fitch expects PGN's capital expenditure to reduce following the
completion of the SSWJ projects, with total capex in 2009
estimated to be approximately US$250m-US$300m (including US$100m-
US$150m from 2008 which mainly consists of payments to SSWJ
contractors).  Fitch expects 2009 net debt/EBITDA to be around
2.0x or lower.  PGN's liquidity is not a key credit concern; the
company has no significant near-term funding requirements.  Beyond
the short term, PGN's growth will be boosted by the successful
commissioning and operation of the West Java distribution project.

PGN's ratings continue to be supported by its dominant positions
in Indonesia's gas distribution and transmission sectors, with a
market share of about 93% and 87%, respectively, at end-9M08.
Fitch notes that gas sales to the industrial sector, which made up
about 98% of PGN's distribution sales have dropped slightly in
recent months on the back of adverse macroeconomic conditions;
however, the agency believes the further reduction is likely to be
mitigated by strong demand from the power sector.  During 2008,
PGN signed another 260 metric million standard cubic feet per day
to supply PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara, the state-owned
electricity company, comprising 200mmscfd to Muara Tawar gas-fired
plant, 30mmscfd to Cilegon gas-fired plant and another 30mmscfd to
Tanjung Priok gas-fired plant.  Nevertheless, PGN's credit profile
is affected by exposure to gas supply and price risks, and any
mismatch between long-term gas purchase contracts and shorter-term
gas sale contracts.

The Stable Outlook reflects the agency's expectation that PGN's
net debt/EBITDA will remain around 2.0x or below.  Should this
ratio rise to above 2.0x on a sustained basis a negative rating
action may be taken.  Conversely, sustained net debt/EBITDA of
less than 1.0x may result in a positive rating action.

PGN is a leading gas transmission and distribution company.  At
end-September 2008, it reported revenue of IDR9,021bn and EBITDA
of IDR4,605bn.  PGN continues to enjoy an extended maturity
profile for its borrowing with only about 17% of PGN's loans
maturing before 2013.  As at end-September 2008, PGN had
IDR2,291bn cash and annualised net debt/EBITDA of 1.3x.  The
government of Indonesia owned about 54.58% of the company at end-
September 2008, while public shareholders and the company's
employees and management held the remaining 45.38% and 0.04%
stakes, respectively.

EAST STREET: Moody's Downgrades Ratings on Three 2002-1 Notes
-------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has downgraded its ratings of three
classes of notes issued by East Street Referenced Linked Notes,
2002-1 Limited, and five classes of notes issued by East Street
Referenced Linked Notes, 2004-1 Limited.  The transactions are
managed synthetic CDOs referencing mainly Japanese and Asian
structured finance products.

Moody's explained that the rating actions taken are due mainly to
the results of the application of the revised and updated key
modelling parameter assumptions that the rating agency uses to
rate and monitor the ratings of SF CDOs.  The deterioration in the
credit quality of the transaction's reference portfolio was also
considered in the process of the rating action.  For information
on the updates to Moody's key modelling parameter assumptions,
please see the press published on December 11, 2008.

PAMODZI GOLD: In Talks to Avoid Liquidation of Unit
---------------------------------------------------
Pamodzi Gold Ltd said it has started talks to avoid the
liquidation of one of its units, Bloomberg News reports.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific on
Mar. 18, 2009, Bloomberg News's Ron Derby said Pamodzi is seeking
funds after failing to receive an expected sum of 200 million rand
(US$20 million) from Best Rock Investments LLP.

The report recalled the company said Oct. 24 it completed the
terms of a final 200 million rand of necessary fund raising.  On
Dec. 29, the report related Pamodzi said the fund raising
would include an issue of call options to Best Rock Investments
(Pty) Ltd.  Pamodzi added in a Feb. 18 statement obtained by
Bloomberg News that it hadn't received a "definitive timeline" for
the receipt of funds from Best Rock.

Meanwhile, Bloomberg News reported Pamodzi spokeswoman Bongi
Radebe said the company will oppose a 21.8 million-rand claim in
South Africa's High Court against its Orkney mine from contractor
Engineering Labour Hire and Mining Supplies.  The demand is in
connection with outstanding payments, Jan Van den Berg, co-
founder of the contractor, told the news agency by mobile phone
from Pretoria.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific on
Mar. 9, 2009, around 4,000 workers at Pamodzi Gold's Free State
province mines went on strike over unpaid wages.

Pamodzi, which employs 5,014 workers in South Africa, ended the
10-day strike on March 13 after paying February wages, Bloomberg
News said.

                         Mounting Losses

For the nine months ended September 30, 2008, Pamodzi incurred a
net loss of R427,673,000.  The company recorded a R208,488,000
loss in the year ended December 31, 2007.

According to Business Report, Pamodzi incurred mounting losses
after selling gold below market price and with the acquisition of
two gold mines early last year.

As of September 30, 2008, the company's total assets and total
liabilities stood at R1,917,030,000 and R1,757,518,000
respectively.

Pamodzi said it will use the R400 million fund from the IDC and
Pamodzi Resources for these purposes:

   -- R180 million to settle long outstanding creditors;

   -- settle the loan from MC Resources Limited and Casten
      Holdings Limited, shareholders of Thistle, amounting
      to R34.2 million;

   -- settle the RMB revolving credit facility of
      R26.8 million; and

   -- R160 million for future capital expansion and assumed
      to be split evenly between IDC loan and Pamodzi

PROMOS TECHNOLOGIES: Extends Early Bond Offer to March 21
---------------------------------------------------------
Lisa Wang at the Taipei Times reports that ProMOS Technologies Inc
has extended the early tender offer to buy back convertible bonds
for the second time in an effort to avoid default.  The offer is
extended from Tuesday, March 17 until Saturday, March 21.

The report relates that as of Wednesday, March 18, Promos
disclosed 70 percent of its convertible bond holders had agreed to
sell back the US$335 million outstanding convertible bonds to the
company at a deep discount, or not to exercise the “put” option.

Only if the tender offer were successful would ProMOS' creditors,
led by the Bank of Taiwan, inject a recently approved NT$3 billion
(US$87.83 million) bank loan into the chipmaker to help it repay
debt, Taipei Times cited ProMOS spokesman Ben Tseng as saying in a
telephone interview.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific on
Feb. 24, 2009, the China Post said ProMOS offered to buy back
convertible bonds for as little as 10 percent of the principal.

Citing ProMOS in a filing to Singapore's stock exchange, the Post
related that the tender offer started Feb. 19 and ends on
March 21.

ProMOS, as cited by the Post, said the tender will fail if less
than 79 percent bondholders accept the offer.  However, ProMOS
said creditors can still demand full payment if they apply by
May 14, the Post related.

The Post said the company would spend as little as US$33.5
million, less than half it has available, buying back US$335.6
million worth of zero-coupon convertible bonds listed in
Singapore, freeing it from a payment default.

The TCR-AP, citing Taipei Times, reported on Jan. 20, 2009, that
ProMos was facing mounting pressure to repay US$330 million in
overseas corporate debt that matured on Feb. 14.

For the first nine months of 2008, ProMOS lost NT$22.5 billion
amid a slump in demand for memory chips.  The company reported a
net loss of NT$7.32 billion for the year ended December 31, 2007.

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.
