BABCOCK AND BROWN: Shares Delisted from ASX Trading
---------------------------------------------------
The Australian Securities Commission disclosed that Babcock and
Brown Limited was delisted from the official list of the
Australian stock exchange, at the request of the company, from the
close of the trading on June 18, 2009.

Babcock and Brown's administrators said in a June 11 statement
that the company has reached agreement with the ASX to terminate
the listing of the company's ordinary shares ("BNB") and BBSN
subordinated notes ("BNG").

The administrators said it requested the termination of the
listings after taking into account that the BBSN subordinated
notes issued by Babcock & Brown have now been accelerated and are
immediately due and payable.

The administrators also concluded that there is no likelihood that
the holders of the company's ordinary shares will receive any
further distributions.

Continued listing of the company's shares would no longer serve
any useful purpose since Babcock & Brown shareholders have no
ongoing economic interest in the company, the administrators
stated.

Headquartered in Sydney, Australia, Babcock & Brown Limited
(ASX:BNB) -- http://www.babcockbrown.com/-- is a global
alternative asset manager specializing in the origination and

Emirates.  The company has established a specialized funds and
asset management platform across the operating divisions that have

focused investment vehicles in areas, including real estate,
renewable energy and infrastructure.

                          *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific on
March 13, 2009, Babcock & Brown appointed voluntary administrators
after investors in the company's subordinated notes listed in New
Zealand voted on March 13 against a special resolution to
restructure the terms of the notes.  Under the special resolution,
the company's equity and subordinated note holders won't receive
any return.  Babcock & Brown appointed David Lombe and Simon
Cathro of Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu as Voluntary Administrators.

Babcock & Brown International Pty Ltd. is the holding company of
Babcock & Brown Limited.


ELDERS LIMITED: To Extend Short Term Facilities to September 30
---------------------------------------------------------------

Elders said that the agreed approvals contemplate an extension to

the refinancing."

"The extension and covenant waiver will enable orderly completion
of the refinancing exercise over the course of the coming months."

our financiers on finalising the terms and agreements that will
provide the finance for Elders to pursue its recovery and growth
plans in the coming years," Mr. Jackman said in a statement.

                     Lehman Brothers' Collapse

Founded in 1850, Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. --
http://www.lehman.com/-- was the fourth largest investment bank
in the United States, offering a full array of financial services
in equity and fixed income sales, trading and research,
investment banking, asset management, private investment
management and private equity.  Its worldwide headquarters in New
York and regional headquarters in London and Tokyo are
complemented by a network of offices in North America, Europe, the
Middle East, Latin America and the Asia Pacific region.

Lehman filed for Chapter 11 on September 15, 2008 (Bankr. S.D.
N.Y. Case No. 08-13555) after Barclays PLC and Bank of America
Corp. backed out of a deal to acquire the company, and the U.S.
Treasury refused to provide financial support that would have
eased out a sale.  Lehman's bankruptcy petition listed
$639 billion in assets and $613 billion in debts, effectively
making the firm's bankruptcy filing the largest in U.S. history.
Several affiliates filed bankruptcy petitions thereafter.

On September 19, 2008, Lehman Brothers, Inc., was placed in
liquidation pursuant to the provisions of the Securities Investor
Protection Act (Case No. 08-CIV-8119).  James W. Giddens was
appointed trustee for the SIPA liquidation of the business of LBI.

Lehman Brothers Finance AG, aka Lehman Brothers Finance SA, filed
a petition under Chapter 15 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code on
February 10, 2009.  Lehman Brothers Finance, a subsidiary of
Lehman Brothers Inc., estimated both its assets and liabilities at
more than $1 billion.

LBHI's U.S. bankruptcy cases are handled by Judge James M. Peck.
Harvey R. Miller, Esq., Richard P. Krasnow, Esq., Lori R. Fife,
Esq., Shai Y. Waisman, Esq., and Jacqueline Marcus, Esq., at Weil,
Gotshal & Manges, LLP, in New York, represent Lehman.  Epiq
Bankruptcy Solutions serves as claims and noticing agent.

Lehman Brothers International (Europe), the principal UK trading
company in the Lehman group, has been placed into administration,
together with Lehman Brothers Ltd., LB Holdings PLC and LB UK RE
Holdings Ltd.  Tony Lomas, Steven Pearson, Dan Schwarzmann and
Mike Jervis, partners at PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP, have been
appointed as joint administrators to wind down the business of LBI
(Europe) on September 15, 2008.

Lehman Brothers Japan Inc. and Lehman Brothers Holdings Japan Inc.
filed for bankruptcy in the Tokyo District Court on September 16.
The two units have combined liabilities of JPY4 trillion --
US$38 billion.  Akio Katsuragi, a former Morgan Stanley executive,
runs Lehman's Japan units.

Lehman Brothers Asia Limited, Lehman Brothers Securities Asia
Limited and Lehman Brothers Futures Asia Limited suspended
operations upon the bankruptcy filing of their U.S. counterparts.

                            Asset Sales

Barclays Bank Plc has acquired Lehman's North American
investment banking and capital markets operations and supporting
infrastructure for US$1.75 billion.  Nomura Holdings Inc., the
largest brokerage house in Japan, on September 22 reached an
agreement to purchase Lehman Brothers Holdings, Inc.'s operations
in Europe and the Middle East less than 24 hours after it reached
a deal to buy Lehman's operations in the Asia Pacific for
US$225 million.  Nomura paid only US$2 dollars for Lehman's
investment banking and equities businesses in Europe, but agreed
to retain most of Lehman's employees.


STORM FINANCIAL: CBA Admits Mistakes Over Loans
-----------------------------------------------
The Commonwealth Bank of Australia has admitted shortcomings in
the way it lent money to about 2,500 clients of Storm Financial
Limited.

In a statement released Wednesday, CBA acknowledges the position
in which some Storm Financial clients find themselves, while not
caused directly by the Bank, involves the Bank to some degree.

Commonwealth Bank CEO Ralph Norris said, "In some cases we have
identified shortcomings in how we lent money to our customers
involved with Storm Financial."

"We are not proud of our involvement in some of these issues and
we are working toward a fair and equitable outcome for our
affected customers," Mr. Norris said in a statement.

"Our customers can be assured that where we have done wrong, we
will put it right.  I am committed to the identification and
resolution of all issues relating to the Bank's involvement with
Storm Financial," he said.

Mr. Norris said the Bank would meet its obligations to those
customers identified as being in financial difficulty as a result
of any shortcomings identified in the Bank's lending practices.

"However, the Bank is not responsible for the financial advice
provided independently by Storm Financial to the Bank's customers.
That was clearly the responsibility of Storm Financial, a licensed
financial advisory company," he said.

                     Working with the Regulator

In December 2008, the Bank initiated dialogue with the Australian
Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC), following concerns
raised in relation to Storm Financial and continues to be actively
engaged with them.

                      Resolution for Customers

The Bank established a hardship team on the ground in Townsville
in February 2009 and this team continues to work with the bank's
customers to seek solutions and outcomes for them.

CBA said it will immediately suspend repayment obligations until
August 31, 2009, for all loans made to customers in relation to
Storm Financial.

Any settlement agreed between the Bank and its customers, either
in the past or in the future, would not preclude them from having
their individual positions improved should the Bank be required to
do so to meet its obligations in relation to Storm Financial.  The
Bank will meet the cost of independent legal and financial advice
for its customers, Mr. Norris added.

"The Bank will learn from the mistakes made in relation to lending
to Storm Financial customers.  We will do everything possible to
ensure that they will not recur," Mr. Norris said.

                       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 Financial 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.

On March 27, 2009, the Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific
reported that the Australian Securities and Investments Commission
(ASIC) won its bid to liquidate Storm Financial Group after the
Federal Court ruled that the company be wound up.

The Herald Sun related that federal court Justice John Logan
appointed Ivor Worrell and Raj Khatri of Worrells Solvency and
Forensic Accountants as liquidators to the company.

AIR INDIA: Talks With Workers Fail; Won't Take Back Fired Staff
---------------------------------------------------------------
The Hindu reports that another round of talks between Air India's
employees and its management to discuss the demands of the
employees failed to achieve a breakthrough on Wednesday.

"Nothing positive came out of the meeting today [June 17] as the
airline management was adamant in not taking back the sacked
employees," Pramod Kumar, general secretary of Indian Airlines
Limited-Airport Services Limited Employees Union, told PTI.

Mr. Kumar said that the conciliation process took place in the
presence of Central Labour Commissioner and Assistant Labour
Commissioner, the report relates.

The Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific, citing Business
Standard, reported on June 4, 2009, that nearly 300 contractual
security and commercial staff of Air India went on an indefinite
strike on June 3.  The workers were demanding better pay
package and medical benefits, the Business Standard said.

The Hindu relates that the strike was withdrawn on June 10 after
the Chief Labour Commissioner assured them of positive steps by
the airline management.

The Air India Management, taking a strong step against the stir,
had terminated the contract of 21 workers on the first day of the
strike.  Twenty two others were also terminated later, the Hindu
adds.

The Hindustan Times reports that Air India has been bleeding due
to excess capacity, lower yield, a drop in passenger numbers, an
increase in fuel prices and the effects of the global slowdown.

Air India's losses have almost doubled to over INR4,000 crore in
2008-09 (INR2,226 crore in 2007-08) and it does not have the money
to foot the INR350-crore monthly salary bill of its 31,500
employees, according to the Hindustan Times.

Citing a report by The Financial Express, the TCR-AP said on
June 10, 2009, that the National Aviation Company of India Ltd
(Nacil), the company that operates Air India, is seeking INR14,000
crore in equity infusion, soft loans and grants.

                       About Air India

Air India -- http://www.airindia.com/-- transports passengers
throughout India and to more than 40 destinations throughout the
world.  Affiliate Air India Express operates as a low-fare
carrier, mainly between India and destinations in the Middle East,
and Air India Cargo provides freight transportation.  The
government of India has merged Air India with another state-
controlled carrier, Indian Airlines, which has focused on domestic
routes.  The combined airline, part of a new holding company
called National Aviation Company of India, uses the Air India
brand.  The new Air India and its affiliates have a fleet of more
than 110 aircraft altogether.


APEX EXPORTS: CRISIL Assigns 'B' Rating on INR18.6 Million LT Loan
------------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its ratings of 'B/Stable/P4' to the bank
facilities of Apex Exports (Apex).

   INR18.6 Million Long-Term Loan     B/Stable (Assigned)
   INR100.0 Million Foreign Bills     P4 (Assigned)
                     Purchase
   INR115.0 Million Packing Credit    P4 (Assigned)
   INR84.4 Million Letter of Credit   P4 (Assigned)

The ratings reflect Apex's weak financial risk profile,
geographical and customer concentration in revenue profile, and
exposure to risks relating to intense competition in the seafood
industry.  The impact of these weaknesses is mitigated by the
benefits that Apex derives from the experience of its management.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that Apex will maintain its stable business risk
profile backed by its established relationships with customers.
The outlook may be revised to 'Positive' if the firm scales up its
operations substantially, leading to higher-than-expected cash
accruals and significant improvement in the financial risk
profile.  Conversely, the outlook may be revised to 'Negative' if
the firm's debt protection measures deteriorate, on account of
decline in margins, or if it undertakes larger-than-expected debt-
funded capital expenditure, or in case of significant fund
withdrawals by partners.

                       About Apex Exports

Apex, a partnership firm, was formed in 1996 in the Kakinada
district of Andhra Pradesh by Mr. K Satyanarayana Murthy and his
wife.  The firm is engaged in the business of processing and
exporting cultured shrimps to the US and Europe.  The firm has a
processing capacity of 3500 tonnes per annum. Apex reported a net
loss of INR6.37 million on net sales of INR600.35 million for
2007-08 (refers to financial year, April 1 to March 31), as
against a profit after tax of INR19.97 million on net sales of
INR673.83 million for 2006-07.


KANKARIYA TEXTILE: CARE Rates INR18.10cr LT Bank Loan at 'CARE BB'
------------------------------------------------------------------
CARE has assigned 'CARE BB' (Double B) rating to the Long-term
Bank Facilities of Kankariya Textile Industries Private Limited
(KTIPL) for an aggregate amount of INR18.10 crore, including
outstanding term loan of INR14.10 crore, sanctioned fundbased
working-capital limit of INR4 crore.  Facilities with this rating
are considered to offer inadequate safety for timely servicing of
debt obligations.  Such facilities carry high credit risk.

Rating Rationale

The rating is mainly constrained by small size and short track
record of operations of KTIPL.  The rating is also constrained by
significant inter-group transactions, presence in highly
fragmented industry and prevailing bearish industry scenario in
the textile sector.  The rating however, takes into account
experience of promoters, state-of-the art technology plant &
machinery, moderate financial profile and potential benefits of
favourable Government policies to boost the textile industry.

                    About Kankariya Textile

KTIPL is promoted by Shri Prithaviraj Kankariya and Shri Mahavir
Kankariya.  While the promoters have two decades of experience in
the field of grey trading, processing (job work getting done from
other jobbers) and export of various textiles products, KTIPL has
relatively short track record of operation.  KTIPL was established
in Dec'06 and FY09 was the first year of its manufacturing
operations.

KTIPL is mainly dealing in designing, printing and processing of
grey cloth with sarong as own product and does shirting on job
work basis.  Its own product sarong, which has patented designs
(Owned by M/s. Harsh Syntex Pvt. Ltd, a group company of KTIPL)
and established brand named as "Hindustan" has good market in
Southern India, Middle East countries and Africa.
For FY09 (first year of manufacturing operation), KTIPL had
achieved total operating income of INR17.18 crore.  During FY08
KTIPL reported profit after tax of INR0.04 crore on total income
of INR2.52 crore.


M and M AUTO: Low Net Worth Prompts CRISIL 'BB+' Ratings
--------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its ratings of 'BB+/Stable/P4' to the bank
facilities of M and M Auto Industries Ltd (M and M).

   INR108.7 Million Cash Credit     BB+/Stable (Assigned)
   INR166.3 Million Term Loan *     BB+/Stable (Assigned)
   INR5 Million Bank Guarantee      P4 (Assigned)
   INR20 Million Letter of Credit   P4 (Assigned)

   * Includes a proposed limit of INR74.5 million

The ratings reflect the company's moderate financial risk profile
marked by low net worth, moderate gearing, and weak debt
protection measures; and its exposure to high customer
concentration risk.  These weaknesses are partly offset by M and
M's average operational efficiencies and technical competence in
manufacturing springs.  The company also endeavours to enhance
value to its existing customers by improving product quality and
add new customers by diversifying its product profile.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL expects M and M to maintain its stable credit risk profile,
backed by its longstanding relationship with Hero Honda Motors Ltd
(rated 'AAA/Stable/P1+' by CRISIL), and initiatives to develop
sheet belt springs.  The outlook may be revised to 'Positive' if
the company's net worth and capital structure improve
substantially, led by fresh equity infusions and improvement in
profitability.  Conversely, the outlook may be revised to
'Negative' if M and M's financial risk profile deteriorates owing
to larger-than-expected debt-funded capital expenditure, or its
operating margins decline.

                          About M and M

Incorporated in 1991, M and M manufactures precision metallic coil
springs.  The company commenced operations as a dedicated
ancillary supplier to the Hero Honda group, with capacity of 645
tonnes per annum.  The company has undertaken initiatives to
enhance its product profile by implementing a new product line,
sheet belt springs, which will be utilised by KSS Abhishek Safety
Systems (rated 'BBB-/Negative/P3' by CRISIL) for manufacturing
springs in safety belts.

For 2008-09 (refers to financial year, April 1 to March 31),
M and M reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR13 million
(INR10 million the previous year) on net sales of INR415 million
(INR375 million).


MEDPLUS HEALTH: ICRA Places 'LBB' Rating on Fund-Based Limits
-------------------------------------------------------------
ICRA has assigned LBB (pronounced L double B) rating to the fund-
based limits of MedPlus Health Services Private Limited (MedPlus)
indicating inadequate credit quality in the long-term.

The rating takes into account intensely competitive nature of the
industry which coupled with MedPlus high fixed costs has resulted
in the company posting losses at the operating level.  Moreover,
the rating factors in MedPlus high client concentration risk as
Optival Health Solutions Private Limited (Optival) accounts for
its entire sales. However, the rating draws comfort from MedPlus'
experienced management and its currently low gearing levels.

                          About MedPlus

MedPlus was promoted by Mr. Madhukar Reddy in November 2006.  In
FY08 MedPlus raised funds through private equity investors which
reduced Mr. Reddy's stake in the company to 23.35%.  MedPlus is a
wholesale distributor of pharmaceutical and other healthcare
products.  The company deals in nearly 20,000 products
manufactured by about 500 pharmaceutical companies.  MedPlus has
also started the concept of Integrated Health Centers (IHCs)
whereby pharmacy, diagnostic labs and family clinic are all
combined under one roof.  The company has a 100% subsidiary named
MedPlus Pathlabs Private Limited (MPPL) which is involved in
Clinical Reference Lab (CRL) and diagnostic business.


RAJALAXMI EDUCATION: CRISIL Rates INR180.00 Mln Term Loan at 'BB+'
-----------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its ratings of 'BB+/Stable/P4' to the bank
facilities of Rajalaxmi Education Trust (RET).

   INR180.00 Million Term Loan*     BB+/Stable (Assigned)

   * Includes a proposed limit of INR60.00 Million

The ratings reflect RET's limited track record, weak financial
risk profile marked by high gearing and exposure to risks relating
to unfavourable regulations in the intensely-competitive education
industry.  These weaknesses are, however, partially offset by the
benefits that RET derives from its high student intake and stable
cash flows.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that RET's business risk profile will improve,
supported by expected revenue growth due to increasing student
intake.  The outlook may be revised to 'Positive' if the trust's
financial risk profile improves, and it demonstrates robust cash
flow management practices.  Conversely, the outlook may be revised
to 'Negative', if the trust undertakes large, debt-funded capital
expenditure, or if there are delays in completion of its ongoing
expansion plans.

                         About the Trust

RET was established by Mr. Rajesh Chowta and Mrs. Savitha Chowta
in 2005.  The trust imparts engineering and management education.
The trust began offering engineering courses in 2007-08 (refers to
financial year, April 1 to March 31) and very next year started
courses in management. For 2007-08, RET reported a profit after
tax (PAT) of INR27.5 million on net sales of INR41 million.


RANKA-N-RANKA: ICRA Assigns 'LB' Rating on INR192.5 Mln Term Loan
-----------------------------------------------------------------
ICRA has assigned an LB (pronounced as L B) rating to the INR
192.5 million term loan of Ranka-N-Ranka Infrastructure Private
Limited (RNRIPL).  The rating indicates risk-prone-credit quality.

RNRIPL, part of the Ranka Group of companies, is developing a
residential complex (Ranka Heights) with a total built-up area of
300,000 square feet at Bangalore; the company has also recently
diversified into construction and wind power generation.  The LB
rating takes into account the low plant load factor for
operational wind mills resulting in variability of cash flows, the
unsold stock of apartments in the residential complex with
associated risk due to current slowdown in real estate sector, low
scale of contracting business and the weak financial profile
characterized by high gearing and low debt protection indicators.
The rating also factors in the pressure on liquidity which has
been further accentuated by RNRIPL"s advances to Group concerns,
which in turn have land holdings and ready stock of unsold
apartments.  Timely future debt servicing would be contingent upon
the enhancement of liquidity by sale of unsold stock by RNRIPL and
group companies, improvement in output of wind mills and an upside
in the contracting business.

The rating however favourably factors in Ranka Group's long
presence in the Bangalore real estate market and strong execution
capability acquired over past three decades.  Moreover, Ranka
Heights project was completely financed through advances from
customers, which is a reflection of the company's strength.

                        About Ranka-N-Ranka

Initially a partnership firm known as Ranka-N-Ranka, the company
was converted to private Limited company in March 2008.  It is
part of the Ranka Group - a Real Estate Development group with
diversification into infrastructure, wind energy, branded
jewellery, contracting etc.  The company undertook the development
of a residential project called Ranka Heights in 2005 to build 180
luxury apartments.  The project is 95% complete and 85% sold. The
company has also moved into wind mill electricity generation space
with installed capacity of 5MW and is also scaling up its
contracting business.


STP LIMITED: CRISIL Assigns 'B' Rating on INR90 Mln Cash Credit
---------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its ratings of 'B/Stable/P4' to the bank
facilities of STP Ltd (STP).

   INR90 Million Cash Credit        B/Stable (Assigned)
   INR50 Million Letter of Credit   P4 (Assigned)
   INR20 Million Bank Guarantee     P4 (Assigned)

The ratings reflect STP's weak financial risk profile marked by
volatile operating margins, and small scale of operations in the
corrosion protection products industry.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that STP will maintain a stable credit risk
profile on the back of support from the Turner Morrison group, and
low term debt levels.  The outlook may be revised to 'Positive' if
STP reports substantial growth in business volumes and
profitability, while maintaining a healthy capital structure over
the medium term.  Conversely, the outlook may be revised to
'Negative' if the company's business profile weakens on account of
losses, or low profitability, or if it takes on large debt to fund
capital expenditure.

                         About STP Ltd

STP, part of the Turner Morrison group, manufactures corrosion
protection products, and coal tar enamel; these products
contributed 55 per cent and 33 per cent, respectively, to STP's
operating profitability in 2007-08 (refers to financial year,
April 1 to March 31).  STP also undertakes construction
activities. It manufactures construction chemicals at its facility
in Goa, bituminous products at its unit in Chennai, and coal tar
products in Jamshedpur.  Its customers include the Indian
Railways, and companies such as the Oil and Natural Gas
Corporation Ltd, Reliance Industries Ltd, Indian Oil Corporation
Ltd, and Larsen & Toubro Ltd.

STP reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR33 million on net
sales of INR742 million for 2007-08, as against a loss of
INR0.001 million on net sales of INR 555 million for 2006-07.


TTL LTD: CARE Places Rating on Bank Facilities Under Credit Watch
-----------------------------------------------------------------
CARE has placed the long-term rating of 'CARE BB+' (Double B Plus)
and short-term rating of 'PR4' (PR Four) assigned to the bank
facilities of TTL Ltd. under 'Credit Watch' with developing
implications, in view of the proposed merger with QRG Enterprises
Ltd., the Havells Group promoter company.  CARE is in the
process of evaluating the impact of this merger and its impact on
the credit quality of TTL.  The final rating would be announced on
completion of evaluation.

TTL Ltd., a part of the Havells group, is a closely held company
engaged in manufacturing of energy meters.  The company was
originally incorporated as M/s Towers & Transformers Ltd. in
December 1971 to manufacture transformers and aluminium
conductor steel reinforced conductors.  It was taken over by
Havells Group in September 1983.  TTL started manufacturing
energy meters in March 1984 and converted into a public limited
company in 1998 with the present name.  The company tied up with
a German multinational company, Deutsche Zahler Gesellschaft
(DZG) in 1998 for production of single phase and three phase
meters to cater to the premium quality market in India.  In
March 1999, it setup a new plant at existing unit at Sahibabad,
U.P. to manufacture premium quality meters.  TTL received ISO-
9001 certification in September 2000.


VARRON INDUSTRIES: CARE Assigns 'CARE BB+' Rating on LT Bank Loans
------------------------------------------------------------------
CARE has assigned a 'CARE BB+' [Double B Plus] rating to the Long-
term Bank Facilities of Varron Industries Ltd (VIL) aggregating
INR40.80 crore.  This rating is applicable for facilities having
tenure of over one year.  Facilities with this rating are
considered to offer inadequate safety for timely servicing of debt
obligations.  Such facilities carry high credit risk.  CARE
assigns '+' or '-' signs to be shown after the assigned rating
(wherever necessary) to indicate the relative position within the
band covered by the rating symbol.

CARE has also assigned a PR4' [PR Four] rating to the Short-term
Bank Facilities of VIL aggregating INR25.00 crore.  This rating is
applicable for facilities having a tenure up to one year.
Facilities with this rating would have inadequate capacity for
timely payment of short-term debt obligations and carry very high
credit risk.  Such facilities are susceptible to default.

Rating Rationale

The ratings are constrained by small size of operations, customer
concentration risk, absence of long-term supply contracts, project
implementation risk, tight liquidity position and current downturn
in the end-user industries.  The ratings are supported by
experienced management, proven and consistent financial support
from the promoters, long-standing relations with the existing
customers and comfortable interest coverage ratio.

                     About Varron Industries

VIL is involved in manufacturing aluminium alloy ingots with an
installed capacity of around 8,000 Metric Tonnes Per Annum (MTPA).
The products find application in the auto components/power and
real estate industries.  Mr. Shrikant P. Sawaiikar (promoter
Director), having over two decades of experience in the auto
component industry looks after the marketing operations of the
company.  He is instrumental in setting up relations with the
existing customers. Over the years, the company is regularly
supplying to some specific customers which has provided an assured
market for VIL.

On the supply side, VIL does not have any long-term sourcing
arrangements with its suppliers and thus it is exposed to the risk
of volatility in supply of raw materials. Around 90% of the
company's products cater to the auto components industry with
seven customers contributing its entire sales in FY08.  This
exposes the company to significant customer concentration risk.

The company is currently undertaking a significant capacity
expansion project at a total cost of INR12.07 crore.  The total
production capacity is expected to increase to 30,720 MTPA after
commissioning of the new facilities by mid 2009.  The project has
already incurred a time overrun of around five months due to
delay in sanctioning of bank facilities.  Looking at the size of
the current expansion (project cost 80% of net worth as at end
FY08), the company is exposed to significant project risk.

Net sales of the company grew at a Compounded Annual Growth Rate
(CAGR) of 36% over the period FY06-FY08 from INR36.66 crore to
INR68.02 crore.  In the past, promoters have consistently brought
in the required funds in times of need for meeting shortage in
working capital and capital expenditure.  The interest coverage
has been also comfortable at above 2x over the period FY06-FY08;
but the working capital cycle is showing an increasing trend over
the past four years which is due to lengthening debtors' days.
Around 90% of its customers are from auto ancillary sector which
is currently facing cash crunch on account of Original
Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) lengthening their payment periods.
This may further elongate its working capital cycle. The average
utilisation of around 100% in the past twelve months also does not
provide any liquidity back-up.  All this may lead to strained
liquidity position in the medium term.


YSR SPINNING: Stressed Cash Flow Prompts ICRA's "LBB" Rating
------------------------------------------------------------
ICRA has assigned an LBB (pronounced as L double B) rating
indicating inadequate-credit quality to the INR55.1 million term
loans and INR 80.0 million fund-based bank limits of YSR Spinning
& Weaving Mills Private Limited.  ICRA has also assigned an A4
(pronounced A four) rating to INR19.5 million non-fund based bank
limits of YSR, the rating indicates risk-prone credit quality in
the short term.

The ratings factor in the company's small scale of operations,
which restricts economies of scale.  YSR's operating margin
remains susceptible to high volatility in cotton costs and
sluggish demand for cotton yarn over the short-to-medium term.
The ratings are also tempered by high gearing, weak coverage
indicators and stressed cash flow position of the company.  The
ratings however take note of the significant experience of
promoters and the location advantage of being situated in Guntur,
the major cotton growing belt of India. ICRA notes that the
company has recently restructured its term loans with its bankers.

                        About YSR Spinning

YSR Spinning & Weaving Mills Private Limited, was incorporated in
1994 near Ganapavaram, Guntur, Andhra Pradesh.  The company is
engaged in the production of cotton yarn, polyester yarn and
Weaving with an installed capacity of 23000 spindles, 1030 rotors,
8 weaving machines and 16 ginning machines.  The company was
promoted by Mr. Yerram Sridhar Reddy, who has nearly 40 years of
experience in cotton ginning and spinning activities.  The
promoter started as a cotton commission agent in 1977, started
cotton ginning and trading activities in 1983 and later
established YSR Spinning & Weaving Mills Private Limited.  The
promoters and their relatives hold the entire share capital.

Recent performance (Provisional)

The company reported a profit after tax of INR1.6 million on
operating income of INR250.0 million for the nine months ending
December 31, 2009, against profit after tax of INR 3.5 million on
operating income of INR274.3 million for the year ended March 31,
2008.

BANK TABUNGAN: Set to Sell Shares to the Public
-----------------------------------------------
The State Ministry of State Enterprises said that Bank Tabungan
Negara (BTN) and state housing construction firm Pembangunan
Perumahan will soon offer their shares to the public, The Jakarta
Post reports citing SOE secretary Said Didu.

The Indonesian government holds 51 percent stake in Pembangunan
Perumahan, while the remaining 49 percent of shares belong to its
employees, the report says.

The Post relates that according to Mr. Said, the employees would
sell their shares in Pembangunan Perumahan through the Initial
Public Offering (IPO).

Headquartered in Jakarta, Indonesia, Bank Tabungan Negara
(Persero) -- http://www.btn.co.id/-- is a state-owned bank
involved in commercial banking.  In 1974, Bank Tabungan was
appointed as the financing institution for low- to medium-income
housing in an effort to support the Government's housing
development program.  Nonetheless, BTN suffered huge losses from
large corporate lending during the 1997 economic crisis.  The
Government then recapitalized the Bank, and still wholly owns
it.

BTN is now the smallest state bank, but retains a dominating 31%
share in housing loans as of end-2004.  In 2002, the Government
directed it to focus on commercial housing loans.  Hence, its
subsidized housing loans dropped to 44% of its portfolio at
July 2005 from 75% at end-2002.

                        *     *     *

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter–Asia Pacific on
May 15, 2009, Fitch Ratings affirmed PT Bank Tabungan Negara's
Individual Rating at 'D' and Support Rating at '3'.  The Outlook
is Stable.

On May 22, 2009, the TCR-AP reported that Moody's Investors
Service placed Bank Tabungan Negara's Baa2 GLC deposit on review
for possible downgrade.  All other ratings are unaffected and
carry stable outlooks: foreign currency long-term/short-term
deposit of B1/Not Prime and BFSR of D-.


SONY CHEMICALS: To Shut Down Chemical Plant in Batam
----------------------------------------------------
The Jakarta Post reported Thursday that PT Sony Chemicals, a
company run by Japan's Sony Corp, will close its plant in Batam,
Riau Islands, on August 31 due to the falling global demand.

According to the Post, Batam manpower agency chief Rudy
Shakyakirti said the company would lay off some 350 workers as a
result of the closure.

"Sony's top management executives have come to us to process the
severance payment for workers.  As of August 31, the Sony plant
will be closed," Rudy told The Jakarta Post.

The report, citing official data, says PT Sony Chemicals, which
produces chemicals for electronic goods, began investing in Batam
in 1996, with a total investment of US$4 million.

Batam, an island and city in Riau Islands Province of Indonesia,
started to feel the effect of the global financial crisis in
October last year that forced a number of companies to scale down
or even close their operations, the Post relates.

ELPIDA MEMORY: May Apply For Public Funds This Month
----------------------------------------------------
Elpida Memory Inc. plans to apply for several tens of billions of
yen in government funds this month to shore up its depleted
capital, Reuters reports citing three sources familiar with the
matter.

Bloomberg News, citing a Nikkei English News report, relates that
the company may seek as much as JPY40 billion (US$416 million) by
selling up to JPY30 billion in preferred shares and borrowing a
maximum of JPY10 billion yen.

Elpida, Reuters says, is likely to be the first company to receive
aid under a new scheme that makes public funds available to firms
hit by the global financial crisis.

Under the scheme, which started in April, the government-backed
Development Bank of Japan (DBJ) would inject money into Elpida
through the purchase of preferred shares with limited, if any,
voting rights, Reuters notes.

Dow Jones Newswires, meanwhile, reports that a company spokeswoman
said Friday that Elpida is still considering applying for a public
funds injection.

                        Rating Downgrade

As reported in the TCR-Asia Pacific on Feb. 23, 2009, Standard &
Poor's Ratings Services lowered to 'B+' from 'BB-' its long-term
corporate credit and senior unsecured ratings on Elpida Memory
Inc., and placed the ratings on CreditWatch with negative
implications.

According to the rating agency, the downgrade and CreditWatch
placement reflect the material weakening of the company's
financial soundness, due to continued losses stemming from
deteriorating market conditions and uncertainty over the company's
short-term liquidity.

LEGACY GROUP: BSP Files Large-Scale Estafa Against Owner, 2 Others
------------------------------------------------------------------
The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas filed last week with the
Department of Justice a case of large-scale estafa against
Celso G. de los Angeles, Jr. and Pilipino Rural Bank's former
presidents and board members Alexis Petralba and Wilfredo Novo for
conspiring to willfully, unlawfully and fraudulently withdrawing
and siphoning off PHP262.2 million from Cebu-based Pilipino Rural
Bank to the detriment and prejudice of the depositing public and
its creditors.

The central bank said that bank records and statements of
witnesses indicated that with the indispensable cooperation of
these two officers, unauthorized diversion of funds were made to
the current account maintained by Mr. de los Angeles at Pilipino
Rural Bank through fraudulent accommodation of 3,402 unfunded and
returned checks amounting to PHP262.2 million from September 2007
and September 2008.  Mr. de los Angeles therefore illegally
extracted funds from Pilipino Rural Bank with the use of his
current account.   Mr. Petralba was president of Pilipino Rural
Bank from 2003 to 2005 and later named as director/consultant
while Mr. Novo was president and chairman of the board from 2006
until the closure of the bank in December 2008.

Pilipino Rural Bank unilaterally declared a bank holiday effective
December 8, 2008, to the great damage and prejudice of the public
which as of September 2008 had deposits with the bank amounting to
PHP2.27 billion, The Bangko Sentral recalled.

The Bangko Sentral said the elements of large-scale estafa under
Section 1 of Presidential Decree 1689 in relation to Article 315
of the Revised Penal Code are present and, thus, there is probable
cause to hold the respondents criminally liable.

The Bangko Sentral also requested the Department of Justice to
include the respondents in the watchlist of the Bureau of
Immigration.

This case constitutes the seventh filed by Bangko Sentral with the
Department of Justice against Legacy officials: four for
syndicated estafa, one for large-scale estafa, and two for the
falsification of a total of 165 public and commercial documents.

Bangko Sentral filed on February 26, 2009, with the DOJ its first
case for syndicated estafa against Celso G. delos Angeles, Jr.,
and other officers of the Legacy Group and affiliated companies
involving PHP1 billion (one billion pesos) siphoned from the Rural
Bank of DARBCI, a rural bank with offices in General Santos City
and Cebu City.  While records as of September 30, 2008, indicated
that RB DARBCI had PHP830 million in deposits raised from the
public, its cash position was less than PHP1 million (one million
pesos) as of the same date.

The second case for syndicated estafa was filed on March 6, 2009,
against Celso G. delos Angeles, Jr., and other officers of the
Legacy Group and affiliated companies.  The case involves at least
PHP487 million of solicited funds received in trust from
depositors/investors of First Interstate Bank (Rural Bank of
Kananga, Leyte) that respondents have willfully, unlawfully and
fraudulently misappropriated.  FIB which was based in Kananga and
had branches in Palo, Maasin, Hilongos, Carigara and Baybay, all
in Leyte.

The third case for syndicated estafa was filed on March 24, 2009,
against Celso G. delos Angeles, Jr. and other officers of the
Legacy Group for fraudulently siphoning off PHP500 million worth
of deposits and investments from the Rural Bank of Bais Inc. which
was based in Negros Oriental.

The fourth case for syndicated estafa was filed on April 13, 2009,
against Celso G. delos Angeles, Jr. and other officers of the
Legacy Group for the misappropriation of PHP70 million intended as
capital infusion of Rural Bank of  DARBCI, Inc. which is based in
General Santos City.

The first case for 49 counts of falsification of public and
commercial documents was filed on January 5, 2009, against 16
officers, employees and agents, plus one case each of false
reporting and false statement.

The second case of falsification filed on February 6, 2009,  with
the DOJ involved 116 counts of falsification of public and
commercial documents plus 2 counts of false statements against 18
officers, employees, and agents of four (4) rural banks belonging
to the Legacy Group.

                         About Legacy Group

Headquartered in Quezon City, Philippines, The Legacy Group --
http://www.legacy.com.ph/thelegacy.html-- is a conglomerate of
banks and pre-need companies.  The banks offer various financial
products and pre-need firms have pension, education and memorial
plans.  Other members of The Group are companies that provide
credit cards, micro-lending and automotive financing services.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific on
Jan. 27, 2009, the Philippine Daily Inquirer said that the Legacy
Group allegedly amassed between PHP15 billion and PHP25 billion in
deposits over the last three years due to an aggressive marketing
scheme, which promised depositors 20 percent in annual returns.
To address risk concerns, the Inquirer stated, the cash deposits
are spread out through the Legacy chain of banks to keep each
deposit within the maximum limit of the PDIC.

According to the Inquirer, Celso G. de los Angeles, Jr. is the

FRASERS COMMERCIAL: S&P Affirms 'BB' Corporate Credit Rating
------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it had affirmed its
'BB' long-term corporate credit rating on Frasers Commercial
Trust, a Singapore-based real-estate investment trust, focusing
primarily on commercial office properties.  The outlook is
negative.  S&P also removed the rating from CreditWatch, where it
was placed with negative implications on April 7, 2009.

The rating action follows FCOT's announcement on June 12, 2009,
that it has been able to extend the maturity date for Singapore
dollar (S$) 404.5 million of its existing debt to Dec. 31, 2009
from July 31, 2009.  The company also stated that it has received
a commitment letter for refinancing from a consortium of lenders.
Frasers Centrepoint Asset Management (Commercial) Ltd., FCOT's
manager, is currently reviewing the letter.  The refinancing
exercise will also address additional S$150 million of debt that
is due by Dec. 31, 2009.

"We affirmed the rating and removed it from Credit Watch to
reflect our view that the weak performance of the commercial
office property markets in Singapore, Australia, and Japan is
likely to continue because of the global economic downturn.  In
addition, the asset writedowns on FCOT's asset portfolio over the
past year negatively affected its balance sheet and weakened its
capital structure.  As a result, the company's financial gearing
as at March 31, 2009, was 58.3% compared with 44.8% a year
earlier," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Allan Redimerio.

These weaknesses are tempered by the satisfactory diversification
of FCOT's tenant base and the longer weighted average lease term
of its asset portfolio.  In addition, leases that account for
about 30% of the gross rental income of FCOT's portfolio
incorporate fixed step-up rents that provide organic income
growth.

FCOT is supported by the financial flexibility and, in S&P's view,
satisfactory credit profiles of Frasers Centrepoint Ltd. (which
owns 22% of FCOT) and Frasers & Neave Ltd. (which owns 100% of
FCL).  Its current portfolio consists of nine office buildings
located in Singapore, Australia, and Japan, and an investment in
an unlisted office fund in Australia.

"The negative outlook reflects the continued challenging
conditions in the commercial office property segment," said Mr.
Redimerio.

Declines in occupancy rates, capital values, and rental levels
have been more severe than in other traditional property segments,
such as retail malls and industrial properties.  In addition,
FCOT's capital structure remains highly leveraged, making its
balance sheet susceptible to further capital value write-downs,
which could lead to a breach of existing bank loan covenants.

FRANKEL ENTERPRISES: FNB Freezes Tannenbaum Bank Accounts
---------------------------------------------------------
First National Bank froze the bank accounts of Barry Tannenbaum to
comply with a court order in the probe of what may be South
Africa's biggest ever fraud, Renee Bonorchis at Bloomberg News
reports citing a bank spokeswoman.

The Johannesburg-based bank, known as FNB, is working with the
South African task team set up on June 14 to investigate
Mr. Tannenbaum, who is accused of running a Ponzi scheme worth as
much as ZAR15 billion (US$1.8 billion), Bloomberg cited Virginia
Magapatona, a spokeswoman for FNB, as saying in an e-mailed
response to questions.

Barry Tannenbaum, a South African businessman living in Australia,
lured investors with the promise of 200 percent annual returns
linked to pharmaceutical imports, and forged AIDS drug orders to
reassure funders when money started to dry up, The Troubled
Company Reporter-Asia Pacific reported on June 17, 2009, citing
javno.com.

According to Bloomberg, the alleged fraud has affected investors
including Sean Summers, the former chief executive officer of
South Africa's second-biggest food retailer Pick'n Pay Stores Ltd.

Meanwhile, Reuters reports Qatar's Barwa Real Estate Co said on
Thursday it was seeking repayments from South Africa's Frankel, an
entity owned by Tannenbaum.

"Barwa entered into a revolving credit facility in connection with
an entity called Frankel in South Africa that seemed to be facing
problems," Reuters quoted Barwa as saying in a statement to the
Doha bourse web site.  "Immediately upon learning the risks facing
the company's investments related to this convention, Barwa
terminated the facility and is vigorously pursuing to the
repayment of the amounts provided for these transactions by all
legal and judicial ways."

Separately, Bloomberg News reports that a South African judge has
appointed three trustees to manage assets seized from Tannenbaum.

Bloomberg, citing Michael Strauss, a lawyer who represents
investors who may have lost money with Tannenbaum, says that
trustees selected by the judge in Pretoria, South Africa, include
officials from a KPMG International unit and Johannesburg-based
Shirish Kalian Attorneys.

Tannenbaum said in an e-mail from Sydney on Wednesday that he is
trying to "deal with the situation" and is consulting with legal
advisors, Bloomberg relates.  Tannenbaum, according to Reuters,
has denied wrongdoing and blamed his company's difficulties on the
economic crisis.

E.SUN BANK: Moody's Assigns Junk Ratings on Three Certificates
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has assigned these ratings to
beneficiary certificates issued by E.Sun Bank 2007-1
Collateralized Bond Obligations Special Purpose Trust:

  -- NTD4,000 million Class A1 Beneficiary Certificates, Caa1
  -- NTD4,400 million Class B1 Beneficiary Certificates, C
  -- NTD560 million Class B2 Beneficiary Certificates, C

The transaction is a Taiwan CBO transaction closed in 2007.

The rating actions taken follow a request from the trustee to
publish the global scale ratings in addition to the national scale
ratings on the beneficiary certificates.


SHIN KONG: Fitch Downgrades Issuer Default Rating to 'B+'
---------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has downgraded ratings on Shin Kong Financial
Holding Co. Ltd. and its subsidiaries Shin Kong Life Insurance
Company Ltd., Taiwan Shin Kong Commercial Bank and Shin Kong
Securities.  At the same time, the agency has removed the ratings
from Rating Watch Negative and assigned a Negative Outlook.  The
details of the rating actions are summarized at the end of the
press release.

The ratings downgrades primarily reflect the group's principal
operating subsidiary, SKL's much weakened capitalization as well
as SKFH's standalone increased debt gearing and reduced liquidity.
In light of the parent SKFH's weakened ability to provide support,
the ratings of both SKB and SKSC now mainly reflect their
standalone credit profiles.  SKB's ratings consider its small
franchise, low profitability and adequate liquidity and
capitalization, while SKSC's ratings reflect its improved, albeit
still small brokerage operations, sound liquidity and
capitalization and relatively volatile profitability.

The Negative Outlook reflects Fitch's view that the challenging
economic conditions and extremely low interest rates would
continue to weigh on SKL's profitability and place downward
pressure on its capitalization.  Fitch is also concerned that
further deterioration of SKL's or SKFH's standalone financial
strength would pose a negative impact on SKB's and SKSC's
franchise and capital soundness.  In April 2009, SKFH agreed to
sell the brokerage operations of SKSC to its 26.28%-owned
securities firm, Masterlink Securities Corporation and liquidate
the remaining parts of SKSC.  Fitch will withdraw SKSC's ratings
upon completion of the transaction in Q409.

The substantial decline of Taiwan's stock market, volatility of
foreign exchange rates and deterioration of the credit quality of
structured securities in 2008 have weakened most Taiwanese life
insurers' (including SKL's) capital strength in 2008.  Fitch
expects the ongoing volatility of equity markets and foreign
exchange rates to continue to pressure Taiwanese life insurers.
In particular, most companies still have significant equity
exposures (over two times their shareholders' equity) and large
offshore investments compared with their reduced capital base.
The life insurance sector's negative spread burden is also a
growing concern given the low interest rate environment.  Fitch
notes a marginal decrease in the assumed investment return could
cause a significant drop in a life insurer's embedded value due to
the generally long duration of its insurance liabilities.

Due to the legacy burden of high guaranteed rates related to
existing insurance policies, SKL's profitability has been heavily
influenced by the rather volatile investment performance of its
invested assets.  Despite the TWD21 billion of new capital
injected by SKFH, SKL's net worth decreased almost 59% in 2008 to
TWD24.8 billion at end-2008 (2% of total assets) as a result of
poor investment income.  Fitch estimates SKL's capital level would
remain low after taking into account the large potential gains on
its property investment, the potential loss on the remaining
structured portfolio and the likely recovery of the valuation
losses on its equity investments on the back of a strong rebound
of Taiwan's stock market in 2009.  Following the capital injection
(part of which was funded via the issuance of subordinated debts)
into SKL, SKFH's liquidity and refinancing risks have also
increased as it had a total of TWD19 billion outstanding debt but
only TWD1.1 billion cash on its balance sheet at end-Q109.

SKB's profitability remained weak in 2008 with a net profit of
TWD227 million (ROE: 1.1%).  This was due to further compression
on the already low interest margins and the reduced contribution
of wealth management fees, although cost tightening partly reduced
the impact.  Nonetheless, SKB's capitalisation and liquidity
remain adequate.  Its Tier 1 capital ratio was 7.1% and the
statutory liquidity ratio was 13% at end-2008 (higher than the
regulatory requirement of 7%).  It also maintained adequate asset
quality, with total problem loan exposures accounting for 1.9% of
gross loans, and a loan loss reserves coverage ratio of 66% at
end-2008, although credit costs may well rise over 2009-2010 amidt
a challenging economic environment.

SKSC continues to improve its market presence and revenue
diversification by expanding its brokerage market share.  The
company reported a small profit in its brokerage operation in
2008, although proprietary trading resulted in a net loss of
TWD380 million.  Despite the relatively volatile earnings
performance, SKSC still maintained a high capital adequacy ratio
at 501.52% at end-2008 (well above the regulatory minimum
requirement of 150%) and a satisfactory liquidity position with a
current ratio of 136%.

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.
