CENTRO PROPERTIES: Rejects Lumar's Request to Convene Meeting
-------------------------------------------------------------
Centro Properties Group has rejected a call by a group of
securityholders that it convene a meeting to consider the election
of three directors to its board, the Australian Associated Press
reports.  The company also demanded the meeting requisitioners to
substantiate claims that there had been a breakthrough with a
major Chinese bank regarding a potential financing deal for
Centro, the report said.

According to the AAP, the requisition notice calling for the
meeting was filed on July 7 by Sydney-based Lumar Investments Pty
Ltd and its director Margaret Lou, representing related entities
claiming to be entitled to at least five percent of Centro's
securities.  The requisition notice proposed stapled security
holders consider three resolutions to elect investors Mr. Li
Zhang, Mr. Kieron Strahan and Ms. Yik Fan Ngai as non-executive
directors to the Centro board, the AAP said.  According to the
report, Lumar said the proposed directors would address "flaws in
its business model, weakness in its investment strategy and
shortcomings in its risk control".

Lumar also said its work to investigate potential sources of
financing in China for Centro had "led to a major breakthrough"
and the proposed directors would ensure any deal was "properly
considered".  "One of China's top banks has shown significant
interest and willingness to refinance (Centro)," Lumar added.

In a statement on July 8, Centro said it has reviewed Lumar's
requisition notice.  The company said that the review has
determined and the requisitioners have been advised that the
requisition is deficient and does not meet the legal requirements
for a valid notice.

Centro Chairman Paul Cooper said "As is widely known, we have
engaged international director and executive recruitment firm Egon
Zehnder to conduct a search for appropriately qualified non-
executive Directors to serve on the Centro Board.  Significant
progress has been made with our recent announcement that three
deeply experienced, highly-qualified and well-regarded candidates,
Anna Buduls, Susan Oliver and Robert Tsenin, will be appointed to
the Centro Board in September."

"Centro's Board and management have been in dialogue with Ms. Lou
and Mr. Zhang of Smartec Capital (one of the meeting
requisitioners) over the past several months, and we have asked
them to submit any candidates for consideration within the Egon
Zehnder process. I have today reiterated that invitation to Mr.
Zhang, Mr. Strahan and Ms. Ngai and have asked them to meet with
the Centro Board in the very near future," Mr. Cooper said.

Centro CEO Glenn Rufrano said "We have been actively engaged with
Ms. Lou and her associates since the beginning of the year.  We
encouraged Ms. Lou and Mr. Zhang to work with the Company in
investigating potential sources of finance from China.  In doing
so, we agreed to provide the necessary information on Centro's
complex structure which would enable a capital source to properly
understand Centro ahead of any proposal to refinance our debt."

Mr. Rufrano said that the process with Ms. Lou ended because:

   -- Ms. Lou refused to sign a confidentiality agreement which
      would have allowed access to detailed company information
      needed for a recapitalization; and

   -- Ms. Lou proposed that the Company sign an Agency Agreement
      which, among other points, requested representation of the
      Company in mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan and
      required expense reimbursement of up to $1 million and a
      commission of 1% of capital raised (less expense
      reimbursement).   A commission calculated on this basis
      could reach $50 million.  Ms. Lou has stated that she will
      establish a not-for-profit organization to receive the
      commission and that she will use the commission to cover
      her direct expenses and pay her adviser's fees and legal
      costs related to a refinancing.

"We are always open to discussions with parties who are interested
in refinancing the Company.  We are not, however, aware of any
'major breakthrough' with a Chinese bank as referenced in the
correspondence.  On behalf of all of Centro's securityholders, we
insist that substantiation of this claim, which has been made by
Ms. Lou and Mr. Zhang, be provided to enable all of Centro's
securityholders to be fully informed on a timely basis," Mr.
Rufrano said.

The Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific reported on Jan. 4,
2008, that Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its issuer
credit, senior-unsecured debt and preferred stock ratings on
Centro Properties Group to 'CCC+' with negative implications
reflecting the potential of the group's assets to be sold in
softening market conditions, particularly in the U.S.

On Jan. 16, 2009, the TCR-AP reported that Centro Properties
obtained a three-year extension on its AU$3.9 billion of the
senior syndicated debt facility.  It also obtained extension of
the debt facilities within Super LLC (Centro's US joint venture
investment with Centro Retail Trust and CMCS 40).


CENTRO PROPERTIES: Sells Four U.S. Assets for US$28.6 Million

ELDERSLIE MTN: S&P Downgrades Rating on Class C Notes to 'CCC-'
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its rating on the Class
C notes issued by Elderslie MTN Trust Series 2006-1 to 'CCC-' from
'CCC', and removed the rating from CreditWatch with negative
implications, where it was initially placed on Nov. 18, 2008.  At
the same time, the ratings on the Class A and Class B notes were
affirmed.

The rating downgrade on the Class C notes reflects S&P's view that
the Class C notes are vulnerable to nonpayment of principal on or
prior to final legal maturity date.  S&P expects the sum of
cumulative losses to be incurred from the underlying receivables
and the non-remittance amount to exceed the Class D balance and
potentially result in nonpayment of Class C notes.

S&P's observation suggests that the prospect of recovering the
non-remittance amount prior to the legal final maturity date of
the notes is low, and the final repayment of Class C notes is
highly sensitive to the improvement of this prospect.

On the July 2, 2009, payment date, there was a draw of funds from
the liquidity reserve due to there being insufficient income
collections to meet senior expenses and coupon payments to the
Class A-to-Class C noteholders.  As the portfolio diminishes, S&P
expects to see further drawing on the liquidity reserve to meet
timely payment of interests and expenses.

The ratings of the Class A and Class B notes are affirmed, as S&P
believes credit support together with the liquidity reserve are
sufficient to withstand S&P's stress-test analysis under the
respective ratings.

Standard & Poor's continues to monitor the ongoing performance and
management of the transaction.

AMERICAN AXLE: May Seek Bankruptcy Protection in U.S.
-----------------------------------------------------
J.P. Morgan said that American Axle & Manufacturing Holdings,
Inc., might be the next auto supplier to file for bankruptcy
protection, Geoffrey Rogow at The Wall Street Journal reports.

J.P. Morgan, says WSJ, sees these possibilities for American Axle:

     -- covenant extensions,

     -- aid from General Motors Corp., and

     -- CEO Dick Dauch fighting to avoid Chapter 11.

Headquartered in Detroit, Michigan, American Axle & Manufacturing
Holdings Inc. (NYSE: AXL) -- http://www.aam.com/-- is a world
leader in the manufacture, engineering, design and validation of
driveline and drivetrain systems and related components and
modules, chassis systems and metal-formed products for trucks,
sport utility vehicles, passenger cars and crossover utility
vehicles.  In addition to locations in the United States
(Michigan, New York, Ohio and Indiana), the Company also has
offices or facilities in Brazil, China, Germany, India, Japan,
Luxembourg, Mexico, Poland, South Korea, Thailand and the United
Kingdom.

                          *     *     *

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on June 11, 2009,
Fitch Ratings said its 'CCC' issuer default ratings on American
Axle & remain on Watch Negative.

According to the TCR on May 14, 2009, Moody's Investors Service
lowered American Axle's Probability of Default Rating to Caa3 from
Caa1, and its Corporate Family Rating to Ca from Caa1.  In a
related action Moody's also lowered the rating on the company's
secured bank credit facilities to Caa2 from B2, lowered the rating
on the unsecured guaranteed notes to Ca from Caa2, and lowered the
rating on the unsecured convertible notes to Ca from Caa2.  The
Speculative Grade Liquidity Rating was affirmed at SGL-4.  The
outlook is negative.

Deloitte & Touche LLP, American Axle's auditor, has raised
substantial doubt about the ability of the Company to continue as
a going concern.  Deloitte noted the significant downturn in the
domestic automotive industry which has an adverse impact on
American Axle's two largest customers.

GLOBAL SAFETY: Receives US$55MM Investment Bid From WL Ross
-----------------------------------------------------------
Global Safety Textiles LLC received a proposal from funds managed
by WL Ross & Co. LLC to invest US$55 million in a newly formed
entity that would acquire the assets of GST and its subsidiaries.

positioned to continue to expand its geographic footprint which
spans Europe, the Americas and China.

Georg Saint-Denis, President of GST Europe and Asia, commented on
the transaction, saying, "This new equity investment will enable
GST to continue to support its strategic international customers
who have benefited from GST's technological innovation and will
continue to enjoy GST's commitment to price competitiveness and
customer service.  GST's management and board believe that the WLR
transaction is the best alternative for GST at this time and that
we need to act quickly to preserve the value of our business.  Our
next step is to obtain our lenders' consent and we plan to
recommend that our lenders provide that consent as soon as
possible."

Wilbur L. Ross, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of WL Ross &
Co. LLC, said, "We are excited to make a proposal that we believe
would put GST on a stable footing and ensure that it can continue
to support its key strategic customers in all the major car
producing regions globally. We expect that the proposed

relationships between GST and those customers." WL Ross & Co. LLC
and its funds have been involved in the automotive industry as an
investor in both Tier One and Tier Two suppliers.

if accepted, will help provide GST with liquidity until the
proposed sale is consummated.

GST is a wholly owned subsidiary of International Textile Group,
Inc. Mr. Ross is the chairman of the board of ITG and certain
entities affiliated with WLR own a substantial majority of the
outstanding equity securities of ITG.  GST and certain of its

LEHMAN BROTHERS: Related Cases Reach 667 in Hong Kong
-----------------------------------------------------
The Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) announced that there are
currently 667 Lehman-Brothers-related cases under disciplinary
consideration.  These are cases which have gone through detailed
investigation by the HKMA.

"A number of cases are at a very advanced stage of the
enforcement process.  Before making a final determination in
these cases, we have to go through due process to ensure
fairness, including giving the subjects of investigation an
opportunity to be heard," said by an HKMA spokesperson.

Since 17 October 2008 the HKMA has referred a total of 482
Lehman-Brothers-related cases (unchanged from last week),
involving 16 banks, to the SFC for further action.  These cases
have been reviewed by the HKMA, which has determined that there
are sufficient grounds for referring them to the SFC to
facilitate its investigations into banks.

The HKMA has, up to 3 July 2009, received 21,421 complaints
concerning Lehman-Brothers-related products, of which 21,169
complaints have gone through the preliminary assessment process.
As a result of the assessment, the HKMA is currently
investigating 6,271 cases and seeking further information on
12,770 cases.  A total of 1,461 complaints have been closed as
there was no sufficient prima facie evidence found after the
preliminary assessment process or no sufficient grounds and
evidence found after the detailed investigation.  "The closure of
these cases will not affect the top-down investigations being
undertaken by the SFC at the bank level," the HKMA spokesman
said.

AIR INDIA: NACIL to Prepare Business Plan by End of July
--------------------------------------------------------
The National Aviation Company of India Limited, the holding
company of Air India, is working overtime to prepare by the month-
end a business plan and a financial restructuring plan, The Hindu
reports.  According to the report, NACIL is also expected to come
up with plans for the next six months, 12 months and 18 months for
bringing in cost reduction and improving revenue generation.

The Hindu discloses that some of the measures will include:

   -- rationalization of manpower and productivity-linked
      incentives;

   -- integration of the erstwhile Indian Airlines and
      Air India;

   -- review of all agreements on technical and operational
      matters;

   -- return of the leased aircraft at the earliest;

   -- large-scale redeployment to curb infructuous
      expenditure; and

   -- closure of all overseas offices where the NACIL does
      not operate.

The Hindu reports that experts in finance, law, hospitality,
information technology and other relevant fields will be hired to
strengthen the NACIL Board of Directors.  According to The Times
of India, top government sources said Ratan Tata has already been
approached to head this board.  A committee of Secretaries,
chaired by the Cabinet Secretary and including the Finance
Secretary and the Civil Aviation Secretary, will closely monitor
the turnaround plan of NACIL, according to The Hindu.

Citing an informed source, The Hindu reports that Air India
employees, according to their categories, will be paid their June
salaries by July 10 and July 14.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific on
June 10, 2009, The Financial Express said that the National
Aviation Company of India Ltd. was seeking INR14,000 crore in
equity infusion, soft loans and grants.  The TCR-AP reported on
June 19, 2009, 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.

                         About Air India

LAMBODHARA TEXTILES: Fitch Assigns 'BB' National Long-Term Rating
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has assigned India's Lambodhara Textiles Limited a
'BB(ind)' National Long-term rating.  Fitch has also assigned a
rating of 'BB(ind)' to LTL's outstanding long-term bank loans
aggregating INR126 million and 'BB(ind)'/'F4(ind)' ratings to the
working capital limits of INR107 million.  The Outlook is Stable.

The ratings reflect LTL's over 15 year established track record in
the viscose yarn and polyester viscose yarn domestic markets.  The
ratings also reflect the strength of the company's relationships
with customers, and its niche position in the market with focus on
value-added products.  The ratings also draw comfort from an
improvement in PBDIT (Profit before interest, depreciation and
taxation) margins to 12.0% during H2FY09 from 11.1% in FY08, The
increase is attributable to the contribution from higher value-
added yarn varieties, which LTL has been introducing, since 2005,
through new product development efforts and which have started
yielding results over the past 18 months.  For FY09 however, the
overall PBDIT margins have been at 11.0% on account of higher cost
of back-up power due to the power shortage situation in the state
of Tamil Nadu.

The ratings are constrained by the relatively smaller scale of
operations, low EBITDA margins at around 11% and low levels of
interest cover (around 2.2x).  Debt/EBIDTA improved to 3.92x in
FY09 from 5.01x in FY08, however, leverage metric is expected to
increase in FY10 on account of capital expenditure and an
anticipated increase in working capital requirements.  The company
expects to grow by 10% over the next two years by investing in
additional machinery; maintaining profitability in light of the
power shortages is expected to be a challenge.

A sustained improvement in profitability margins resulting in
debt/EBIDTA falling below 3x times would be considered as a
positive rating trigger.  A decline in EBIDTA margins from current
levels resulting in deterioration in interest cover below 2.0x and
an increase in debt/EBIDTA above 4.2x times would be considered
negative rating triggers.

Coimbatore-based Lambodhara Textiles Limited commenced operations
in 1994 after taking over a sick industrial unit with capacity of
2160 spindles; current capacity is 20,264 spindles.  Lambodhara
has reported revenues of INR472.2 million for FY09 (FY08:
INR347.2 million) and EBIDTA of INR51.8 million (FY08:
INR38.4 million).  Debt/EBIDTA and interest cover as at FY09 were
3.92x and 2.2x, respectively.


LAXMI POWER: Low Profitability Margins Cue CARE's 'BB' Ratings
--------------------------------------------------------------
CARE assigned a 'CARE BB+' rating to the Long-term Bank Facilities
of Laxmi Power Cables Pvt. Ltd.  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 to indicate the relative position within the band
covered by the rating symbol.  Also, CARE assigned a 'PR4' rating
to the Short-term Bank Facilities of LPCPL.  This rating is
applicable for facilities having 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.  These
ratings are assigned to the long-term and short-term bank
facilities of the company (including outstanding and proposed term
loans) aggregating INR8.51 crore.

The ratings are constrained by the small size of operation leading
to low bargaining power, absence in High Tension and Extra High
Voltage segment, working-capital intensive nature of the business
resulting in high overall gearing ratio, low profitability
margins, high bank guarantees compared to net worth and
competition from the unorganized sector.  However, the ratings
factor in the promoter's experience in the cable manufacturing,
location of the plant in the fiscal benefit zone and low attrition
of the employees leading to stability in the operations.  The
company's ability to protect its profitability margins in view of
the highly volatile raw material scenario is the key rating
sensitivity.

                         About Laxmi Power

LPCPL, established in 1996 by Mr. Budhrani, was taken over by the
Kukreja family in CY2000 since the erstwhile promoter could not
implement the cable manufacturing project. LPCPL is a closely-held
private limited company with promoters personally involved in the
day-to-day operations of the company.

The company is engaged in the manufacturing of Low Tension power
cables and wires, with the plant located at Daman, where it enjoys
income tax benefit till 2015.  LPCPL mainly caters to the power
industry with a wide range of clients from the public sector
utilities, industrial customers, railways etc.  The company
operates in the unorganized sector and due to its small size of
operations with low net worth, it lacks the ability to compete
with the industry leaders in the power cable industry. The company
procures its raw material which forms about 90% of the total cost,
from local market on spot basis. Also, the company does not enjoy
price escalation clause in most of its orders. As a result, the
variation in the raw material prices exposes the company to
volatilities in the profitability margins due to its inability to
pass on the price rise in the raw material to the clients.

During FY08, the total income of the company increased marginally
by about 6% to INR24.36 crore as compared to INR22.98 crore in
FY07. However, the PBILDT increased by 24% resulting in increase
in the PBILDT margin to 5.94% as compared to 5.06% in FY07. This
was mainly due to less-than-proportionate increase in the
raw material cost compared to sales.  As a result of improved
PBILDT margin, the PAT margin also increased by 20 basis points in
FY08 as compared to FY07, despite increase in the interest
expenses which resulted in decline in the interest coverage to
1.33x as on March 31, 2008 as compared to 1.42x as on March 31,
2007.  During FY08, the company issued 3.5 lakh equity shares of
INR10/- each to the promoters which improved the debt-equity and
the overall gearing ratios to 0.38x and 2.52x as on March 31, 2008
as compared to 0.57x and 3.06x as on March 31, 2007, respectively.
However, the overall gearing was still high compared to the low
level of cash accruals which is reflected from higher total debt
to net cash accruals ratio of 16.03x for FY08. The current ratio
of the company has been comfortable at above unity for the period
under consideration.  As a result of significant increase in the
collection period, the operating cycle increased to 83 days as on
March 31, 2008 as compared to 65 days as on March 31, 2007.  As
per the nature of the business, the company has to provide bank
guarantees to the State Utilities.  As on March 31, 2008, the bank
guarantees outstanding were INR3.22 crore vis-a-vis its net worth
of INR2.39 crore, which was quite high.

During H1FY09, the company posted a total income of INR12.28 crore
(about 50% of the total income recorded in FY08) with PBILDT and
PAT margins of 5.23% and 1.17%, respectively.


MARCO CABLES: CARE Assigns 'BB+' Rating on LT Bank Facilities
-------------------------------------------------------------
CARE assigned a 'CARE BB+' rating to the Long-term Bank Facilities
of Marco Cables Pvt. Ltd.  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 to indicate the relative position within the band
covered by the rating symbol.  Also, CARE assigned 'PR4' rating to
the Short-term Bank Facilities of MCPL.  This rating is applicable
for facilities having 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.  These ratings are assigned
to the long-term and short-term bank facilities of MCPL (including
outstanding and proposed term loans) aggregating INR17.09 crore.

The ratings are constrained by the small size of operation leading
to low bargaining power, absence in High Tension and Extra High
Voltage segment, working-capital intensive nature of the business
resulting in high overall gearing ratio, low profitability
margins, high bank guarantees compared to net worth and
competition from the unorganized sector.  However, the ratings
factor in the promoter's experience in the cable manufacturing,
location of the plant in the fiscal benefit zone and low attrition
of the employees leading to stability in the operations.  The
company's ability to protect its profitability margins in view of
the highly volatile raw material scenario is the key rating
sensitivity.

                        About Marco Cables

MCPL, incorporated in 1989, was promoted by Shri Narain Kukreja
and started its commercial production in 1990 by setting up a
manufacturing plant with the financial support from Maharashtra
State Financial Corporation.  The company is registered as Small
Scale Industries unit.  MCPL is a closely-held private limited
company with promoters personally involved in the operations of
the company.  The company is engaged in the manufacturing of Low
Tension (LT) power cables and wires and caters to the power
industry with a wide range of clients from the public sector
utilities, industrial customers, railways etc, with its
manufacturing plant located at Sinnar, near Nasik where it enjoys
sales tax deferment.  The company operates in the unorganized
sector and due to its small size of operations with low net worth,
is not in a position to compete with the industry leaders.  The
company procures the raw material (mainly aluminium) which forms
about 85% of the total cost, from local market on spot basis.
Hence, the variation in the aluminium prices (which have
historically been highly volatile) exposes the company to the
volatilities in the profitability margins, since it does not enjoy
price escalation clause in most of its orders.

During FY08, the total income of the company increased by 55%
compared to FY07 mainly due to the modernisation of the plant and
machinery undertaken in FY07 coupled with increased demand from
the power sector.  However, the PBILDT increased only by 35% in
FY08 with a dip in the margin to 5.82% as compared to 6.68% in
FY07 mainly due to its inability to pass on to the raw material
price rise to the customers.  During FY08, the PAT margin
increased to 0.71% as compared to 0.62% for FY07 mainly due to
less-than-proportionate rise in interest expenses and other
income. This has also resulted in higher interest coverage ratio
to 1.21x for FY08 compared to 1.16x for FY07.  During FY08, the
company raised additional working-capital borrowing of INR2.20
crore resulting in the increase in the debtequity and the overall
gearing ratios to 1.20x and 3.52x, respectively, as on March 31,
2008.  However, considering the promoter's unsecured loan as quasi
equity, on the basis of the letter submitted by the company to the
bank wherein it is stated that such loans should be treated as
subordinate loan to bank borrowings, the debtequity and the
overall gearing ratio were reworked and stood at 0.45x and 1.98x,
respectively, as on March 31, 2008.  The current ratio of the
company has been comfortable at above unity for the period under
consideration.

As a result of reduction in the receivables coupled with stable
inventory levels, the operating cycle of the company declined from
139 days as on March 31, 2007 to 104 days as on March 31, 2008,
despite decrease in the creditor period by 45 days. As per the
nature of the business, the company has to provide bank guarantees
to the State Utilities.  As on March 31, 2008, the bank guarantees
outstanding were INR4.72 crore vis-a-vis its net worth of INR3.88
crore, which was quite high.

During H1FY09, the company posted a total income of INR11.52 crore
(about 27% of the total income recorded in FY08) with PBILDT and
PAT margins of 8.20% and 0.80%, respectively.


MAYTAS INFRA: Hyderabad Metro Rail Project Contract Cancelled
-------------------------------------------------------------
The Economic Times reports that the Andhra Pradesh government has
cancelled the Hyderabad Metro rail project contract awarded to
Maytas Infrastructures Ltd, a firm run by the family of former
Satyam Chairman B. Ramalinga Raju.

According to the report, Andhra Urban Development Minister Anam
Ramnarayana Reddy said the state government decided to cancel the
project as the company failed to achieve financial closure by the
March deadline.  Mr. Reddy said the INR71 crore that Maytas had
paid would not be returned and that a detailed plan for the
project would be announced on July 13, the report relates.

Maytas bagged the INR12,000-crore project by offering to give
about INR30,000 crore to the government over 30 years, the Times
notes.

In a separate development, The Economic Times reports that the
Karnataka government has retained Maytas Infra as the developer
for two greenfield airport projects at Gulbarga and Shimoga.
The state decided to continue with Maytas Infra after the
corporate affairs ministry recommended the continuation of the
contracts, the report said.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific on
Feb. 20, 2009, the Financial Express said the government called on
the Company Law Board to supercede the present boards of Maytas
Infra Ltd and Maytas Properties Ltd.  "In order to prevent
further acts of fraud against the said companies (two Maytas
companies) and to safeguard operations of these companies in
public interest, the government has moved the CLB to remove the
existing directors of these companies," the Financial Express
quoted Corporate Affairs Minister Prem Chand Gupta as saying.

The Hindu Busines Line related that the application to the CLB was
based on the information given by the Serious Fraud Investigation
Office, which showed that the present management of the two
companies had worked with fraudulent intent, breached
stakeholders' trust, persistently neglected its obligations and
functions 'to the serious detriment of the business and operations
of these two companies and stakeholders'.  According to the Hindu
Business Line, the board of Maytas Infra comprises Dr. R. P. Raju
(Independent director), Mr. B. Teja Raju (Vice- Chairman and son
of Mr B. Ramalinga Raju), and Mr. B. Narasimha Rao (who was
inducted on January 30, 2009).

                     Receivership Application

As reported in the TCR-AP on Feb. 18, 2009, India Infoline, citing
a report, said the Bombay High Court rejected an application made
by IDBI Bank and ICICI Bank seeking appointment of a court
receiver to oversee the administration of Maytas Infra Limited.
According to Infoline, Maytas is carrying out 62 infrastructure
projects and has Rs40.45 billion debt outstanding, in term loans
and working capital facilities from various banks.  Infoline said
Maytas's financial health and its ability to complete the ongoing
projects is crucial for the banks.  On February 9, Infoline said a
High Court judge refused to grant ad-interim relief sought by the
two banks.

SUNDARAM EXPORTS: CARE Rates INR20-Crore LT Bank Loans at 'BB'
--------------------------------------------------------------
CARE has assigned a 'CARE BB' rating to the Long-term Bank
Facilities of M/s Sundaram Exports aggregating INR20 crore.  This
rating is applicable for facilities having tenure of more than one
year.  Facilities with this rating are considered to offer
inadequate safety for timely servicing of debt obligations.  Such
facilities carry high credit risk.

The rating assigned by CARE is based on the capital deployed by
the partners and the current financial strength the firm.  The
rating may undergo change in case of withdrawal of capital or of
the unsecured loans brought in by the partners in addition to the
financial performance and other relevant factors.

Rating Rationale:

The rating is constrained by the small-size partnership nature of
the business, single product and geographical concentration of
sales.  The rating is further constrained by high proportion of
debtors to sales with majority of them being uninsured, long
working capital cycle, tight liquidity position, lack of backward
integration, low PAT margin and strong competition from large
number of players in organized and unorganized sectors.

The rating considers the experience of promoters in the diamond
business, absence of long-term debt and the Government support to
the industry.

Further, ability to recover the receivables in time and honor its
payment obligations in the external environment characterized by
economic slowdown in the major exports markets are the key rating
sensitivities.

M/s Sundaram Exports was incorporated in 1996 as a closely-held
partnership firm by three partners -- Mr. Vaghjibhai Tilchand
Desai, Mr. Vinodbhai Tilchand Desai and Mr. Vijaybhai Gunvantrai
Doshi.  The firm is engaged in processing and exporting of
polished diamonds.  The firm is engaged in processing of very
small-sized diamonds ranging from 1 to 15 cents in round shape.
The firm outsources all its manufacturing activities to various
units located in and around Surat on job-work basis. Majority of
the firm's exports (around 68% in FY08) are concentrated towards
two destinations namely USA and Hong Kong. The proportion of
debtors to total sales is high at 38% as on March 31, 2008, and
they in turn are not insured, which exposes the firm to
recoverability risk.

Net sales of the company have witnessed a declining trend in FY07
and FY08 mainly on account of the lower demand for the firm's
product i.e. small-value products.  Majority of the firm's sales
come from the existing customers.  PAT margin has shown a
declining trend and is low at 1% in FY08 mainly on account of
interest expense.  Further, the lower margins are the result of
the lack of backward integration as the firm does not have the
manufacturing facilities and undertakes trading business. The
overall gearing of the firm has improved to 1.23x as on March 31,
2008 from 1.38x as on March 31, 2007.  The working capital cycle
has increased on the back of increased inventory days from 43 days
in FY07 to 63 days in FY08.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific on
April 27, 2009, Moody's Investors Service put on review for
possible downgrade PT Medco Energi Internasional Tbk's B2
corporate family rating and B3 senior unsecured rating (Senior
8.75% bonds due 2010 issued by MEI Euro Finance Ltd).

The TCR-AP also reported on May 11, 2009, that Standard & Poor's
Ratings Services lowered its long-term corporate credit rating on
PT Medco Energi Internasional Tbk., an Indonesia-based oil and gas
exploration and production company, to 'B' from 'B+'.  The outlook
is stable.  At the same time, S&P also lowered the issue ratings
on the US$176.9 million (US$124.7 million outstanding, net of
treasury notes) convertible bonds due May 12, 2011 issued by Medco
CB Finance B.V. and the US$325.4 million (US$89.2 million
outstanding, net of treasury notes) guaranteed notes due May 22,
2010, issued by MEI Euro Finance Ltd., which are both guaranteed
by Medco.


* INDONESIA: JCR Raises Foreign Currency Long-Term Rating to 'BB+'
------------------------------------------------------------------
Japan Credit Rating Agency has upgraded its ratings on the foreign
currency long-term senior debts of the Republic of Indonesia to
BB+ from BB and those on its local currency long-term senior debts
to BBB- from BB+. Outlook of both ratings is stable.

The upgrading reflects that Indonesia, having weathered the impact
of the global financial crisis fairly well and keeping a positive,
albeit slower, economic growth amid the global economic crisis,
has, in recent years, substantially reduced the government debt
burden and enhanced its resilience to external shocks thanks to
its prudent economic policies.

The "Stable" outlook is based on JCR's view that, while Indonesia
is expected to pursue prudent economic policies and maintain
macro-economic stability and fiscal soundness amid the
strengthened political stability backed by its democratic
political regime, there still exists a possibility that
increasingly volatile portfolio investment flows may have a
significant impact on its balance of payments and foreign exchange
rates as the global economic prospects remain uncertain.  For
further upgrading, JCR considers it important for the Indonesian
authorities to further enhance the country's growth capacity by
removing the bottlenecks in economic activities and improving the
business environment such as infrastructure development, and to
continue its efforts to improve the fiscal structure and
strengthen the resilience to external shocks, while maintaining
the macro-economic stability.

                   Democratic Political System
                 and Enhanced Political Stability

More than 11 years have passed since President Suharto stepped
down in May 1998.  During this period, the democratic political
system has taken root and the general and presidential elections
are being conducted impeccably in 2009.  In the presidential
election scheduled for July, incumbent President Susilo Bambang
Yudhoyono, a candidate from the Democratic Party that will have
the largest number of seats in parliament from October 2009, is
expected to be re-elected, which would make his administration
more solid.

                     Sustained Economic Growth

Indonesia posted sustained economic growth rates ranging 5-6 % per
year in the last five years. With its population reaching nearly
230 million, the fourth largest in the world, and GDP per capita
exceeding US$2,000 in 2008, the country's domestic demand,
particularly private consumption, has been growing steadily. Even
in the fourth quarter of 2008 and the first quarter of 2009 when
the global economic crisis deepened, its real GDP grew 5.2% and
4.4% (year-on-year), respectively. In 2009, it is expected to
register a positive growth although the pace of growth may slow
down amid the lingering global recession.

            Prudent Fiscal Management and Substantially
                  Reduced Government Debt Burden

The Indonesian government maintains a fiscal disciplinary
framework, based on the State Finance Act (Law No. 17, 2003), that
requires it to keep the annual budget deficit of and the each
year's debt outstanding of the combined central and local
governments below 3% and 60% of GDP, respectively.  As the
government has continuously pursued a prudent fiscal policy to
keep its primary balance surplus, the ratio of the central
government debt to GDP has steadily and significantly fallen from
88% at the end of fiscal 2000 to 56% at the end of fiscal 2004 and
33% at the end of fiscal 2008.  Likewise, the ratio of interest
payments to total fiscal expenditures has declined from 23% in
fiscal 2000 to 15% in fiscal 2004 and 9% in fiscal 2008.  As such,
fiscal burdens from the government debt have been substantially
reduced. While the budget deficit is projected to expand to 2.5%
of GDP in fiscal 2009 amid the economic slowdown, any resultant
increase in the debt burden will be kept marginal.

            Enhanced Resilience to Short-Term External
            Shocks Witnessed by Global Financial Crisis

Prompted by the contagion of the global financial crisis, the
government and the central bank have implemented since October
2008 a series of countermeasures such as a hike of the bank
deposit guarantee ceiling, foreign currency liquidity support for
commercial banks, precautionary actions for budget financing, an
expansion of currency swap arrangements and economic stimuli under
monetary and fiscal policies.  Furthermore, the ratio of the
external debt to GDP fell from 86% at the end of 2000 to 29% at
the end of 2008, with the corresponding ratio to exports down from
217% to 107%.  At the end of 2008, a majority of private-sector
external debtors were either foreign companies or joint ventures
with foreign companies.  The foreign exchange reserves grew from
US$ 29.4 billion at the end of 2000 to US$ 58.4 billion by the end
of August 2008. At the time of the external shock in the fourth
quarter of 2008, such structural improvement, together with the
measures taken by the authorities, helped Indonesia avert a
recurrence of the vicious cycle it experienced during the Asian
currency crisis, when a fall in the exchange rates undermined the
balance sheet of companies owing external debt, which in turn
caused a financial crisis through swollen nonperforming loans
(NPLs) and triggered an economic crisis through the dysfunction of
the banking system.  In fact, the increase of gross NPLs in the
banking sector remained rather limited (i.e., from 3.9% at the end
of August 2008 to 4.6% at the end of April 2009).  The foreign
exchange rate (IDR/USD), CDS spread and stock market index, which
had come under heavy downward pressure, as well as the reduced
foreign exchange reserves, have now almost recovered their pre-
Lehman shock levels.  These seem to indicate that Indonesia
displayed its strengthened resilience to short-term external
shocks throughout the process of the latest global financial
crisis.

                Increasingly Volatile Non-Residents'
                     Portfolio Inflow/Outflow

Indonesia's foreign exchange reserves stood at US$ 57.9 billion as
of the end of May 2009, equivalent to 5.5 months of its imports
and public external debt payments in 2008 and 2.5 times as much as
its short-term external debt (on a maturity basis, as of the end
of March 2009).  Also, through the ASEAN+3 Chiang Mai Initiative
(CMI) currency swap arrangements (a supplementary facility to IMF
program), Indonesia can now draw up to US$3.2 billion even without
an IMF program.  With these foreign currency liquidities, the
country has certain resilience to short-term external shocks.
Nevertheless, Indonesia's relatively high nominal interest rates
had drawn a large volume of nonresidents' inward portfolio
investment in recent years.  As a result, the outstanding balance
of such investment stood at US$71.8 billion at the end of 2007,
equivalent to 17% of GDP and 126% of foreign exchange reserves.
Such portfolio investments recorded a net outflow of US$3.9
billion in the fourth quarter of 2008 after net inflows of US$2.8
and US$4.1 billion in the first and the second quarters,
respectively. It regained a net inflow of US$1.7 billion in the
first quarter of 2009 amid improvement of the global financial
situation.  However, as the central bank intermittently cut its
policy interest rate, a large outflow may recur should the global
financial situation take a turn for the worse again. Thus, the
flows of portfolio investment and the level of foreign exchange
reserves will need to be continuously monitored.

CSC SERIES: Moody's Changes Ratings on Various Classes of Bonds
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has changed the ratings for the Class A-
2 through G-3 and X Bonds issued by CSC Series 1 GK.  The Bonds
will mature in November 2012.

The individual rating actions are listed below.

  -- Class A-2 and Class A-3 bonds, Downgraded to Aa1 from Aaa and
     also placed under review for possible downgrade; previously,
     Aaa Placed Under Review for Possible Downgrade on March 24,
     2009

  -- Class B-2 and Class B-3 bonds, Downgraded to A2 from Aa2 and

     Under Review for Possible Downgrade on March 24, 2009

  -- Class X bond, Downgraded to Aa1 from Aaa and also placed
     under review for possible downgrade; previously, Aaa Placed
     Under Review for Possible Downgrade on March 24, 2009

CSC Series 1 GK, effected in December 2006 and March 2007,
represents the securitization of 11 non-recourse loans.

Moody's had originally placed the ratings under review for
possible downgrade on March 24.  The rating action was prompted by
an important notice dated March 12, 2009 that Moody's received
from the Servicer, and reflected Moody's strong concerns about the
transaction's collateral recovery, which may depend on the
resolution of issues raised in the notice.

Additionally, Moody's has updated its key surveillance assumptions
for the monitoring of Japanese CMBS ratings and on April 14, 2009,
started reviewing for possible downgrade 228 tranches in 50
Japanese CMBS deals.

As a result, the number of tranches on review for possible
downgrade comes to 339, in 57 deals -- including deals that had
already been on review for possible downgrade.  This is one of the
transactions that had been placed under review for possible
downgrade because of the update.

Moody's had continued the review for possible downgrade of the
ratings of the subject transaction, reflecting update of the key
surveillance assumptions.

In light of Japan's current liquidity crisis, Moody's is concerned
that refinancing possibilities for existing CMBS borrowers are
declining precipitously, and that real estate prices will remain
under stress.

Moody's is thus applying higher stress to its recovery assumptions
for those loans that are more likely to default than in normal
market conditions.  To incorporate this influence into its CMBS
ratings, Moody's has classified all CMBS loans into three
categories -- plus special servicing loans -- according to the
likelihood of refinancing.

Moody's has also re-evaluated recovery assumptions for other loans
that are not characterized as having a high likelihood of default,
based on collateral performance such as rents and occupancy rates.

                         Category 1 Loans

                       0% of the loan pool

Moody's considers these loans as having a high likelihood of
refinancing based on (1) the sponsor's characteristics, (2) the
quality of the collateral, and (3) the amount of leverage.

                         Category 2 Loans

                       34% of the loan pool

Moody's considers these loans as having a high likelihood of
default, based on the sponsor's characteristics and the short
period until maturity.

                         Category 3 Loans

                       0% of the loan pool

These are loans that do not fit the criteria for Categories 1 and
2.

                     Special Servicing Loans

                       66% of the loan pool

Recovery stress is estimated 23%, reflecting these factors.
Moody's received relevant information such as PM reports and rent
rolls, etc.

1) Two loans are now classified as "Specially Serviced Loans".
   Given the location and type of properties, recovery of these
   loans will likely be hampered by the stressed environment for
   the commercial real estate market.

2) All loans backing this deal will mature by the end of 2009 and
   will have to be refinanced in what Moody's believes will be a
   stressed market.

Moody's continues its review for possible further downgrade, based
on the fact that resolution of the issues raised in the notice
dated March 12, 2009 that Moody's received from the Servicer, have
yet to be concluded.

Moody's will monitor the resolution of the issues raised in the
notice to decide whether to confirm or downgrade the ratings.

GENERAL MOTORS: Pulls Out of 25-Year Nummi Venture With Toyota
--------------------------------------------------------------
General Motors Corporation confirmed on June 29, 2009, that it is
terminating its joint venture with Toyota Motor Corp., at the New
United Motor Manufacturing Inc., in Fremont, California, amid
disagreements on the future product to be manufactured at the
facility.

NUMMI has been run by GM and Toyota since 1984, where Toyota
manufactures the Corolla sedan and the Tacoma pickup and GM makes
the Pontiac Vibe hatchback.

GM has stated that that its stake in NUMMI will become part of the
"Old GM" that will be sold off during its Chapter 11 proceedings.
As part of its long-term viability plan, GM has decided that its
ownership stake in the NUMMI joint venture with Toyota will not be
a part of the "New GM," GM North America President Troy Clarke
said in a press release.

Mr. Clarke related that after extensive analysis, GM and Toyota
could not reach an agreement on a future product plan that made
sense for all parties.  Accordingly, NUMMI will end production of
vehicles for GM in August, and there are no future GM vehicles
planned for the joint venture at this time, he said.  Given that,
GM believes it is in the best interest of the "New GM" and its
stakeholders that we place our ownership interest in NUMMI in 'Old
GM,' Mr. Clarke stated.

"We have enjoyed a very positive and beneficial partnership with
Toyota for the past 25 years, and we remain open to future
opportunities of mutual interest," Mr. Clarke said.

In an e-mail to Bloomberg News, Mike Goss, a U.S.-based spokesman
for Toyota, said that the Toyota "[hoped] for the 50/50 joint
venture to continue."

"While we respect this decision by GM, the economic and business
environment surrounding Toyota is also extremely severe, and so
this decision by GM makes the situation even more difficult for
Toyota," Mr. Goss told Bloomberg.

NUMMI, for its part, said in a statement to The Los Angeles Times
that "it may take some time before the future [of the facility] is
determined."

NUMMI is able to produce 420,000 cars and trucks annually.  It
employs 5,400 employees, majority of whom are United Auto Workers
members, making it the only unionized facility among all Toyota's
plants in the U.S. and Canada and "the most expensive plant to
operate in North America," says The LA Times.

Toyota, according to Bloomberg, may soon begin talks to buy out
the NUMMI joint venture.  Toyota is also negotiating with the
United Auto Workers on personnel costs reduction at NUMMI,
Bloomberg added.

J-CREM 3: Moody's Changes Ratings on Various Classes of Certs.
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has changed the ratings for the Class B
through F Trust Certificates issued by J-CREM 3 Trust.  The final
maturity of the trust certificates will take place in November
2012.

The individual rating actions are:

  -- Class B, downgraded to Aa3 from Aa2; previously, Aa2 placed
     under review for possible downgrade on April 14, 2009

  -- Class C, downgraded to A3 from A2; previously, A2 placed

     under review for possible downgrade on April 14, 2009

  -- Class F, downgraded to B1 from Ba2; previously, Ba2 placed
     under review for possible downgrade on April 14, 2009

J-CREM 3 Trust, effected in July 2008, represents the
securitization of non-recourse loans and specified bonds to four
borrowers.  The transaction is currently secured by non-recourse
loans and specified bonds to three borrowers.

Moody's has updated its key surveillance assumptions for the
monitoring of Japanese CMBS ratings and on April 14, 2009, started
reviewing for possible downgrade 228 tranches in 50 Japanese CMBS

quality of the collateral, and (3) the amount of leverage.

                         Category 2 Loans

                        0% of the loan pool

These are loans that do not fit the criteria for Categories 1 and
2.

                     Special Servicing Loans

                       0% of the loan pool

Moody's received relevant information such as PM reports and rent
rolls.  Accordingly, Moody's estimated recovery stress in the
range of 11% to 14% and 13% for the weighted average, in light of
these factors.

- 49% of the loan portfolio will mature in 2009 (having one year
extension period); the remaining 51% will be mature in 2010.
Loans that will need to be refinanced in a stressed market account
for a higher percentage of the loan pool.


JAPAN AIRLINES: To End Flights Between Chubu and Paris in October
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Japan Airlines plans to cut all flights between Central Japan
International Airport, also known as Chubu Airport, and Paris from
the end of October as part of its restructuring, Kyodo News
reports citing sources.

According to the news agency, JAL currently operates seven regular
flights per week between the airport in Aichi Prefecture and the
French capital, but demand for travel has dropped sharply due to
the economic downturn and fears about the spread of the new
influenza strain.  JAL said that for the April-June period, the
routes have been operating at around 60 percent capacity, Kyodo
News relates.

Japan Airlines reported a net loss of JPY63.1 billion for the year
ended March 31, 2009, compared with a net profit of JPY16.9
billion in 2007.  The company also booked an operating loss of
JPY50.8 billion.

JAL projects a JPY63 billion net loss on sales of JPY1.75 trillion
for the current business year through next March.  The company
said it expected international passenger revenue to decline even
more than it did in FY2008 in view of the unremitting sluggishness
in demand plus the foreseeable decrease in yield as the fuel
surcharge component of international fares falls along with the
fuel price.

Trust.  The final maturity of the trust certificates will take
place in August 2015.

     placed under review for possible downgrade on September 17,
     2008

  -- Class B, downgraded to A2 from Aa2; previously, Aa2 had been
     placed under review for possible downgrade on September 17,
     2008

  -- Class C, downgraded to Baa3 from A2; previously, A2 had been

L-JAC 5 Trust, effected in September 2007, represents the
securitization of loans to ten borrowers.  The transaction is
currently backed by 13 loans.

Moody's has updated its key surveillance assumptions for the
monitoring of Japanese CMBS ratings and on April 14, 2009, started
reviewing for possible downgrade 228 tranches in 50 Japanese CMBS
deals.

As a result, the number of tranches on review for possible
downgrade comes to 339, in 57 deals -- including deals that had
already been on review for possible downgrade.  This is one of the
transactions that had been placed under review because of the
update.

In light of Japan's current liquidity crisis, Moody's is concerned
that refinancing possibilities for existing CMBS borrowers are
declining precipitously, and that real estate prices will remain
stressed.

Moody's is thus applying higher stress to its recovery assumptions
for those loans that are more likely to default than in normal
market conditions.  To incorporate this influence into its CMBS
ratings, Moody's has classified all CMBS loans into three
categories -- plus special servicing loans -- according to the
likelihood of refinancing.

Moody's has also re-evaluated recovery assumptions for other loans
that are not characterized as having a high likelihood of default,
depending on a necessity based on collateral performance such as
rents and occupancy rates.

                         Category 1 Loans

                       0% of the loan pool

Moody's considers these loans as having a high likelihood of
refinancing based on (1) the sponsor's characteristics, (2) the
quality of the collateral, and (3) the amount of leverage.

                         Category 2 Loans

                       82% of the loan pool

Moody's considers these loans as having a high likelihood of
default, based on the sponsor's characteristics and the short
period until maturity.

                         Category 3 Loans

                       5% of the loan pool

These are loans that do not fit the criteria for Categories 1 and
2.

                     Special Servicing Loans

                      13% of the loan pool

Moody's received relevant information such as PM reports and rent
rolls. Accordingly, Moody's estimated recovery stress in the range
of 14% to 29% and 16% for the weighted average (excluding the
specially serviced loans), in light of these factors.

1) Given the stressed environment for the commercial real estate
   market, the property is likely to be less attractive to
   potential buyers in terms of type and location.

2) Eighty-two percent of the loan portfolio will mature in 2009
   and 2010, and will need to be refinanced in a severely stressed
   market.

  -- Class X, downgraded to Aa2 from Aaa; previously, Aaa placed
     under review for possible downgrade on January 20, 2009

MLOX4, effected in December 2007, represents the securitization of
4 non-recourse loans.  None of the non-recourse loans has been
paid in full.

Moody's has updated its key surveillance assumptions for the
monitoring of Japanese CMBS ratings and on April 14, 2009, started
reviewing for possible downgrade 228 tranches in 50 Japanese CMBS
deals.

As a result, the number of tranches on review for possible

                         Category 3 Loans

                       100% of the loan pool

These are loans that do not fit the criteria for Categories 1 and
2.

                     Special Servicing Loans

                       0% of the loan pool

Moody's received relevant information such as PM reports.
Accordingly, recovery stress ranges from 14% to 18% and is
estimated at 16% for the weighted average, reflecting these
factors.

1) Moody's initial assumptions about collateral recovery need to
   be reconsidered, as does its scenario, since actual disposition
   is slower than originally assumed.

2) Cash flows and occupancy rates, among others, for some of
   properties are less than originally assumed.

of 5% to 19% and 16% for the weighted average (excluding the
specially serviced loans), in light of these factors.

1. Given stressed environment for the commercial real estate
   market, volatility in future cash flow levels is likely to make
   some of the properties less attractive to potential buyers.

2. Rents and occupancy rates, among others, for some of properties
   are less than originally assumed.

3. 100% of the loan portfolio will mature in 2010. Loans that will
   need to be refinanced in a stressed market account for a higher
   percentage of the loan pool.


WMT GLOBAL: S&P Downgrades Ratings on Class A Fixed-Rate Notes
--------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered to 'AA' from 'AAA' its
rating on the class A fixed-rate notes issued under the WMT Global
Funding I Inc. transaction.  At the same time, Standard & Poor's
kept the ratings on the class A to E notes on CreditWatch with
negative implications, where they had been placed on April 9,
2009.

S&P downgraded class A and kept the ratings on class A and B on
CreditWatch with negative implications because S&P holds the view
that uncertainty is mounting over the recovery prospects of the
transaction's underlying loan after it defaulted in October 2008.
Specifically, in view of the procedures described in the notes'
agreement, it may take considerable time to reach decisions with
respect to the recovery of claims relating to the defaulted loan.
Standard & Poor's believes that any delay may hamper recovery by
the transaction's legal final maturity date in November 2010,
given the limited remaining period of time (one year and four
months).

The rating actions on class A and B are based on what S&P views as
uncertainty over principal and interest payments on the notes by
the legal final maturity date in November 2010.  Nevertheless,
even if principal and interest payments on the notes are not made
by the legal final maturity date, S&P still believes that there is
a significant likelihood that the principal and interest payments
on the notes will ultimately be made.  Yet, S&P may need to
consider further rating actions on classes A and B if the
prospects of note repayment remain uncertain and the legal final
maturity date draws closer.

Meanwhile, S&P kept the ratings on the class C to E notes on
CreditWatch with negative implications because S&P believes that
there is also uncertainty over the recovery prospects of the
collateral properties that ultimately secure the aforementioned
defaulted loan.  This view is based on S&P's assessment of the
collateral properties' characteristics.

Standard & Poor's intends to review its ratings on WMTGF I's notes
after examining the reports submitted by the servicer, and
assessing a number of factors, including recovery prospects and
the collateral properties' performance.

This is a single-borrower multi-asset CMBS (commercial mortgage-
backed securities) transaction.  The notes issued under this
transaction are backed by a loan extended to a single borrower.
The loan was originally secured by eight extended-stay limited-
service apartment properties.  The transaction was arranged by
Lehman Brothers Japan Inc. Capital Servicing Co. Ltd. acts as the
servicer for this transaction.

MAGNACHIP SEMICONDUCTOR: Plan Offers 71% for First-Lien Creditors
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Bill Rochelle at Bloomberg News reports that MagnaChip
Semiconductor B.V. and its affiliates filed a liquidating Chapter
11 plan that provides most of the proceeds from its assets sale to
first-lien lenders owed US$95 million.  According to the
disclosure statement explaining the Plan, second-lien noteholders
owed
US$500 million will receive US$1 million.  The first-lien lenders
will recover 70.6% while second lien noteholders would recover
0.2%.  According to the report, subordinated debt holders with
US$250 million in claims will receive nothing because the money
they otherwise would see from the US$1 million will be directed to
the second-lien creditors.

MagnaChip prepared the Plan prior to its Chapter 11 filing.  The
sale to a Korean limited partnership named KTB 207 Private Equity
Fund was also worked out in advance, Mr. Rochelle relates.

LEHMAN BROTHERS: 10 Brokers Banned from Selling Structured Notes
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Monetary Authority of Singapore banned 10 financial
institutions from selling structured notes for improperly
marketing US$655 million of the bonds that were linked to Lehman
Brothers Holdings Inc., The Associated Press reports.

Citing Singapore's central bank in a statement, the AP relates
that the banks and brokerages can't sell structured notes between
six months and two years.  According to the report, the central
bank said some of the financial institutions assigned risk ratings
that were inconsistent with warnings stated in the notes'
prospectus, and salespeople were ill-trained to sell the notes.

The structured notes, the AP relates, were linked to the risk of a
bankruptcy occurring with one of the reference entities, such as
Lehman.  According to the AP, the Lehman collapse in September
2008 led to a default on the dividend payment of some of the
bonds, most of which had a maturity of five to seven years and a
yield of about 5 percent.

The 10 financial institutions banned by the central bank are DBS
Group, UOB Kay Hian, OCBC Securities, ABN AMRO's Singapore branch,
Maybank Singapore, CIMB-GK Securities, Hong Leong Finance, DMG &
Partners, Phillip Securities and Kim Eng Securities.

The central bank, as cited by the AP, said that about 10,000
investors bought the notes, and financial institutions have
compensated about 4,000 of them.  Similar structured notes were
sold in Hong Kong, Taiwan and Indonesia.

                         *********

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.
