ABC LEARNING: Founder's Frozen Properties in Trust Up for Sale
--------------------------------------------------------------
All of the Queensland residential properties owned by a
discretionary trust that the corporate watchdog believes is the
"alter ego" of the former ABC Learning Center chief Eddy Groves
are up for sale, The Sydney Morning Herald reports.

The Herald relates that assets of the trust have been frozen by
the Australian Securities and Investments Commission after the
regulator became concerned they were being dissipated.

According to the report, the sale to a "genuine arm's-length
buyer" has been given the green light, providing that ASIC is
notified before any sale is finalized.

The proceeds of the sale can then be frozen pending a decision on
who the trust belongs to, the report adds.

Nick Combis, a director of the company that acts as the trustee of
the trust, said that the only asset of the trust not for sale was
"a half-share of a unit trust or property in Toowoomba", which was
worth less than AU$500,000.

Mr. Combis replaced Viryan Collins-Rubie, the wife of Mr. Groves,
as the director of the trust.

On July 28, 2009, the Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific,
citing a previous report from The Sydney Morning Herald, said ABC
Learning Center Ltd founder Eddy Groves appeared in a Federal
Court in Sydney on July 27 relating to a AU$12.6 million fund he
transferred to a discretionary trust.  The Australian Securities
and Investments Commission alleges that Mr. Groves set up the
trust as an "alter ego."

Counsel for ASIC John Halley told the court that the trust's net
worth had plummeted since Mr. Groves transferred the money to the
trust.  Its net value had fallen from AU$15.8 million in June 2008
to AU$3.9 million last month.  Mr. Groves denied that he is behind
the trust.

Based in Australia, ABC Learning Centres Limited (ASX: ABS) --
http://www.childcare.com.au/-- provides childcare services and
education in more than 1,200 centres in Australia, New Zealand,
the United States and the United Kingdom.  The Company's
subsidiaries include A.B.C. Developmental Learning Centres Pty
Ltd, A.B.C. Early Childhood Training College Pty Ltd, Premier
Early Learning Centres Pty Ltd, A.B.C. Developmental Learning
Centres (NZ) Ltd, A.B.C. New Ideas Pty Ltd, A.B.C. Land Holdings
(NZ) Limited and Child Care Centres Australia Ltd.  On January 26,
2007, it acquired La Petite Holdings Inc.  On February 2, 2007, it
acquired Forward Steps Holdings Ltd. On March 23, 2007, it
acquired Children's Gardens LLP.  In September 2007, the Company
purchased the Nursery division (Leapfrog Nurseries) from Nord
Anglia Education PLC.  In June 2008, the Company completed the
sale of a 60% stake in its United States business to Morgan
Stanley Private Equity.

                           *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific on
November 6, 2008, ABC Learning Centres Limited appointed Peter
Walker and Greg Moloney of Ferrier Hodgson as voluntary
administrators of the company and a number of its subsidiaries.

Subsequent to the appointment of administrators, the company's
banking syndicate appointed Chris Honey, Murray Smith and John
Cronin of McGrathNicol as receivers.


BENDIGO AND ADELAIDE: Struggles to Meet Guidance as Bad Debts Rise
------------------------------------------------------------------
Bendigo and Adelaide Bank will struggle to meet the earnings
guidance it gave last April because of rising bad debts associated
with the AU$615 million it lent to investors in managed investment
schemes promoted by the Great Southern, The Australian reports.

According to the report, Citi has predicted that bad debts would
be a large swing factor in Bendigo's annual result, due on
August 10.  Citi forecast a cash profit of AU$198 million, below
the bank's guidance of AU$205 million to AU$218 million.

The Australian relates that Bendigo is owed an average of
AU$75,000 by each MIS investor, but has full recourse against
other assets held by the customer.

According to the Australian, Citi analyst Craig Williams said
Bendigo chief executive Mike Hirst would be under some pressure to
outline the bank's expectation of losses arising from its
exposure.  He also foreshadowed a goodwill adjustment.

Mr. Williams, as cited by the report, said Mr. Hirst was likely to
outline Bendigo's growth agenda, bearing in mind the bank's
funding constraints and an inability to generate a lot of surplus
capital due to a relatively low return on equity.

"In addition, we think there looms an opportunity to publicly
lobby Canberra for select measures which level the playing field
in the banking market, including a guarantee of the mortgage
securitization market," the report quoted Mr. Williams as saying.

Bendigo and Adelaide Bank Limited (ASX:BEN) --
http://www.bendigobank.com.au-- formerly Bendigo Bank Limited, is
engaged in the provision of a range of banking and other financial
services, including retail banking, business banking and
commercial finance, funds management, treasury and foreign
exchange services, superannuation, financial advisory and trustee
services.  At June 30, 2008, the Company operated through more
than 400 branches across Australia.  It also offers 100 Bendigo
Bank agencies and 700 automated teller machines (ATMs). The
Company operates in four segments: retail banking, wholesale
banking, wealth solutions, joint ventures and alliances, and
corporate support.  On November 30, 2007, Bendigo and Adelaide
Bank Limited acquired Adelaide Bank Limited, which is engaged in
the provision of wholesale mortgages, business lending, wealth
management and retail banking services.

                        *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific on
July 16, 2009, Fitch Ratings affirmed Bendigo and Adelaide Bank's
Long-term foreign currency Issuer Default Rating at 'BBB+', Short-
term foreign currency IDR at 'F2', Individual at 'B/C', Support at
'3' and Support Rating Floor at 'BB'.  The Outlook is Stable.
Also, the agency notes the bank's exposure to investors in the
failed managed investment scheme company, Great Southern Limited.

Although the Outlook for BEN's Long-term IDR is Stable, Fitch
remains cognisant of the impact potential losses and/or weakened
recovery prospects could have on earnings, particularly in the
context of the deteriorating economic landscape and the likelihood
of a generally softer financial performance in FY09.


ELDERSLIE FINANCE: Auditor Trood Pratt to Face Public Probe
-----------------------------------------------------------
Anthony Klan at The Australian reports that the corporate watchdog
has approved a public examination into the auditor of Elderslie
Finance Corporation.

The Australian Securities & Investments Commission has approved
the examinations into Trood Pratt & Co, chartered accountants, to
be conducted next month by receivers PricewaterhouseCoopers, the
report said.

The report says the regulator is also separately reviewing the
Company's collapse.

"We have received authorisation from ASIC to perform a public
examination of the auditors at this time," The Australian quoted
PwC as saying in its latest report to Elderslie unitholders.  "To
assist with the public examinations, we are in the process of
serving on a number of parties orders for the production of
documents.

"ASIC will retain the right to investigate any other aspect of the
Elderslie Group's operations and any other parties, including
company directors, if it has grounds to suspect that
contraventions have occurred."

A hearing date for the public examinations has been set for
August 18 and 19, The Australian adds.

Elderslie Finance Corporation is an independent, Australian-owned
structured finance and investment management group.

                           *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific on
July 3, 2008, Elderslie Finance Corporation has been placed into
receivership following a Federal Court order allowing its trustee,
Perpetual Trustees WA Ltd, to appoint a receiver, after several
rescue plans for the ailing company fell through.

Perpetual appointed Gregory Hall and Philip Carter of
PricewaterhouseCoopers as the receivers for Elderslie Finance.


ING GROEP: Asian Assets Good Fit for ANZ, Daiwa Institute Says
--------------------------------------------------------------
Citing a report by Daiwa Institute, Ambereen Choudhury at
Bloomberg News says ING Groep NV's Asian private banking
operations could be a "compelling strategic fit" for Australia &
New Zealand Banking Group Ltd.

ANZ's capitalization "puts it in a strong position to pursue
strategic acquisitions in Asia," Bloomberg quoted Daiwa's
Melbourne- based analyst Johan Vanderlugt as saying in a note to
clients on Tuesday.

Citing people familiar with the talks last week, Bloomberg
discloses ING has sent out preliminary sales documents to
potential buyers of its Asian and Swiss private banking assets.
Bloomberg notes one of the people said the combined assets may
fetch about US$1.5 billion.

According to Bloomberg, ING, which received a EUR10-billion (US$14
billion) government rescue in October, is seeking to raise as much
as EUR8 billion by selling assets to boost capital.  Bloomberg
says the sale of private banking assets in Asia may attract buyers
seeking to expand wealth-management operations in the region.
Bloomberg relates the people said ING is seeking about US$600
million for its Asian private banking division, which has offices
in Singapore, Hong Kong and the Philippines.  In a July 23 report
Bloomberg disclosed JPMorgan Chase & Co. is advising ING on the
sale.

Headquartered in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, ING Groep N.V. (ING)
-- http://www.ing.com/-- is a global financial institution
offering banking, investments, life insurance and retirement
services.  The Company serves more than 85 million private,
corporate and institutional customers in Europe, North and Latin
America, Asia and Australia.  ING has six business lines:
Insurance Europe, Insurance Americas, Insurance Asia/Pacific,
Wholesale Banking, Retail Banking and ING Direct.  In July 2008,
the Company completed the acquisition of CitiStreet LLC, a
retirement plan and benefit service and administration company in
United States.  In November 2008, ING Groep N.V. increased its
stake in joint venture Billington Holdings PLC from 50% to 100%.
In February 2009, the Company announced that it closed the sale of
its Taiwanese life insurance business to Fubon Financial Holding
Co. Ltd.  In April 2009, the Company sold its non-state pension
fund business and its holding company in Russia to Aviva plc.

SINO-FOREST CORP: S&P Assigns 'BB' Rating on US$212.33 Mil. Notes
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it had assigned its
'BB' issue rating to US$212.33 million 10.25% guaranteed senior
unsecured notes due 2014 issued by Sino-Forest Corp.
(BB/Stable/--).

The notes are in exchange for part of Sino-Forest's existing
US$300 million 9.125% guaranteed notes due 2011 (rated 'BB').  The
company completed the bond exchange offer and obtained consent to
amend certain terms in the US$300 million notes.  About
US$87.67 million of the US$300 million notes remain outstanding.

The favorable outcome of the exchange offer, in S&P's view,
indicates Sino-Forest's adequate financial flexibility under the
current market conditions, as investors demonstrated a willingness
to provide longer-term funding for the company.  The outcome
exchange offer is supportive of Sino-Forest's long-term plantation
expansion strategy in China.  The offer essentially extends the
bond maturity to 2014 from 2011 at a higher coupon rate of 10.25%.
At the same time, some restrictive financial covenant will also be
loosened.

SRE GROUP: Bond Subscription Won't Affect S&P's 'B' Rating
----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that the rating and
outlook on SRE Group Ltd. (B/Negative/--) are not affected by its
proposed subscription of a total of Hong Kong dollar
(HK$) 464.4 million in convertible bonds and equity of its
affiliate, China New Town Development Co. Ltd. (not rated).  S&P
expects SRE to fund the capital injection internally.  CNTD is
expected to use the proceeds to repurchase its speculative-grade
notes.

The rating on SRE has factored in S&P's expectations of SRE
providing financial assistance to CNTD.  S&P views SRE and CNTD as
a group and S&P fully consolidated CNTD in the calculation of
SRE's credit ratios.  While the group has reduced its total debt
through debt repurchases, S&P believes its credit ratios, which
are weak for the current rating, may not improve materially in the
near term as it plans to increase construction starts and could
start to acquire new land.  Its profitability in 2009 will likely
be depressed due to poorer pre-sales in 2008.  Although sales have
improved in the first six months of 2009, from first-half 2008,
the visibility of a sustained strengthening in credit ratios is
limited currently.


SRE GROUP: China Town Deal Won't Affect Moody's 'B2' Rating
-----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service says it sees no immediate impact on SRE
Group Limited's B2 corporate family rating, B3 bond rating and
negative ratings outlook after it announced it had entered into
agreements with China New Town Development Limited, a 49.19%-owned
associate of SRE, to subscribe for its new shares and convertible
bond issuances for a maximum consideration of around
RMB410 million.

Moody's notes the transaction is subject to regulatory and CNTD's
shareholder approvals.

"While the scale of investments is not material -- compared to the
size of SRE's operation -- it will weaken the company's liquidity.
The impact, however, is mitigated by better-than-expected presales
in 1H 2009 and its fund-raising activities in the past few
months," says Kaven Tsang, a Moody's AVP/Analyst.

"The subscriptions are also evidence of SRE's provisions of
financial support to CNTD and such support to a certain extent was
reflected in Moody's downgrades of the company's ratings in May
2009," adds Tsang, also Moody's lead analyst for SRE.

"SRE will maintain its 49.19% interest in CNTD after the share
subscription but a potential conversion of the convertible bonds
by SRE could eventually increase its stake to above 50%.  As a
result, SRE will have to fully consolidate CNTD into its
accounts," comments Tsang.

In its assessments, Moody's has both partially and fully
consolidated CNTD's debt and associated funding costs into SRE's
financial profile.  The adjusted key credit metrics, under both
scenarios, remain appropriate for its existing rating level.

CNTD will apply the proceeds to repay its high-cost debt and its
financial positions will improve somewhat after this refunding
exercise, thereby mitigating the financial pressure on SRE.

Nevertheless, CNTD's overall credit profile remains weak and will
continue to constrain SRE's ratings and outlook.

Moody's last rating action occurred on May 4, 2009, when SRE's
corporate family rating and senior unsecured bond rating were
downgraded to B2 and B3 with a negative outlook.

SRE Group Limited was established in 1993 and was listed on the
Hong Kong Stock Exchange in 1999.  The company focuses on mid-to-
high-end residential developments in Shanghai, Shenyang and
Haikou.  It has attributable land banks of 1.12 million sqm in
Shanghai, 1.49 million sqm in Shenyang and 727,200 sqm in Haikou.
These land banks are sufficient for five years of development.

DECCAN'S PARK: ICRA Assigns 'LBB+' Rating on INR200 Mln Facilities
------------------------------------------------------------------
ICRA has assigned an LBB+ rating to the INR200 million fund based
facilities of Deccan's Park Limited.  The rating indicates
inadequate-credit-quality rating in the long term.

ICRA's non investment grade rating factors in the significant fall
in occupancy levels and Revenue per available room of its
operational hotel property called Deccan Plaza during the last six
months of 2008-09, small size of operations, and high geographical
concentration risk with only one operational hotel as on date.
While assigning the rating, ICRA has also factored in the inherent
cyclicality, prevailing negative outlook of the Indian Hotel
Industry and competitive pressures as a result of significant
presence of 3 star hotels in Chennai.  The rating is however
supported by the sustainable Average Room Rentals inspite of fall
in occupancy levels, planned diversification into Ooty, Tamil Nadu
which will bring down its geographical concentration risk and
moderate gearing levels.

Deccan's Park Limited was originally incorporated in 1988 as
Deccan Dairy & Fru-Drinks Ltd. and it was renamed as Deccan's Park
Limited in 1997.  DPL is a part of Deccan group having businesses
in real estate, hospitality and financial services.  Deccan's Park
Limited is running a Deccan Plaza hotel in Chennai and also
redeveloping a resort in Ooty.  In FY09, the company earned a net
profit of INR10.3 million on an operating income of INR114.8
million.


GLITTEK GRANITES: ICRA Rates INR62 Mln Fund Based Limit at 'LBB'
----------------------------------------------------------------
ICRA has assigned an LBB rating, indicating inadequate-credit
quality, to the INR62 million fund based limit of Glittek Granites
Limited.

The ratings factor in fragmented and intensely competitive nature
of the industry and the not-so favorable demand outlook for
granite exporters over near-to-medium term because of slowdown
witnessed in construction sector of major importing nations.
Moreover ratings take into consideration, Glittek's weak financial
profile characterized by decline in its revenues, profitability
and debt coverage indicators; and susceptibility of its earnings
to adverse movements in foreign exchange rates.  However, the
ratings derive comfort from the significant experience of
Glittek's promoters in the granite industry and its long-term
relationship with its customeINR

Glittek Granites Limited, incorporated in 1990 as a public limited
company, is a 100% EOU engaged in the business of processing and
exporting of granite slabs and tiles.  The company is promoted by
Mr. Bimal K Agarwal, Mr. Kamal K Agarwal and Mr. Ashok Agarwal;
the three promoters together hold 52.46 of the equity while the
rest is held by institutional investors and public.  In 2008-09,
the company expanded its processing capacity from 93,000sqm to
351,000sqm per annum. Glittek procures raw material from external
parties.  In the first nine months of 2008-09, as per provisional
numbers provided by the company, it posted a profit after tax of
INR0.7 million on an operating income of INR56 million.


HY-TUF STEELS: ICRA Assigns 'LBB+' Rating on INR8.4MM Term Loans
----------------------------------------------------------------
ICRA has assigned 'LBB+' ratings to both the INR55 million fund
based bank facilities and INR8.4 million term loans of Hy-Tuf
Steels Private Limited.  LBB+ is the inadequate-credit-quality
rating assigned by ICRA.

The ratings factor in the favorable demand outlook for steel long
products in the medium to long term, primarily driven by the
infrastructure and construction sectors.  The ratings also factor
in the long experience of the promoters in the industry, HTSPL's
status as an approved vendor of a number of reputed customers and
its established brand name in the state of Gujarat.  The ratings,
however, are constrained by the cyclicality inherent in the steel
business which makes cash flows volatile, the ongoing weak
industry condition leading to a sharp fall in prices in the second
half of the previous financial year.  HTSPL's profitability of
operations has been low, reflecting a competitive and fragmented
nature of the industry with low entry barriers, limited value
addition in HTSPL's business and the company's small scale of
operations.  The rating also considers HTSPL's weak capital
structure, which constrains its debt-service capability in a
cyclical commodity business.

PYRAMID SAIMIRA: Court Orders Stay for Firm's Wind Up Proceeding
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Madras high court directed the official liquidator not to take
charge of Pyramid Saimira Theatre Ltd for the time being, Business
Standard reports.

According to the report, the court's direction comes after PSTL
informed the court at the hearing Thursday that it would pay its
entire dues to Patni Financial Services before October 31, 2009.
PSTL also paid INR32.5 lakh, the interest portion, to Patni, on
the same day.

Following this, the report relates, Justice P Jyothimani said the
"appointment of PL stays in abeyance".

Business Standard recalls that on June 19, the Madras high court
had appointed the OL to take charge of Pyramid Saimira's assets.
According to the report, the order was passed on the basis of a
petition filed by Patni Financial Advisors, which had given a loan
of INR5 crore by way of inter-corporate deposit to PSTL.

RAVI TECHNOFORGE: ICRA Places 'LBB' Rating on US$3.39 Mln Limits
----------------------------------------------------------------
ICRA has assigned a LBB rating to the INR112.9 million and
US$3.39 million fund-based facilities of Ravi Technoforge Private
Limited (RTPL), indicating inadequate-credit-quality.  ICRA has
also assigned an A4 rating to short-term bank facilities
(comprising EPC/FBD/FBP sub-limits of cash credit) of INR95.7
million and US$0.73 million, indicating risk-prone-credit-quality
in the short term.  Although the FCNR loan of the company is
denominated in foreign currency, ICRA's ratings for the same are
on a national rating scale, as distinct from an international
rating scale.

The assigned ratings are constrained by RTPL's modest scale of
operations and highly fragmented nature of the "bearing races"
industry with large number of organized and unorganized players.
RTPL's client concentration is significantly high with SKF
(assigned A3 rating with negative outlook by Moody's Investor
services) contributing 77% to the revenues in FY09, though the
company is making efforts to diversify its client base.  Besides,
the company has a stretched financial risk profile characterized
by high gearing, low coverage indicators, negative fund flow from
operations and high working capital intensity.  Steep fall in
export revenues on account of lower demand in global markets is
expected to impact revenue growth and profit margins in the near
term.  Moreover, aggressive expansion plans over the next two-
three years is expected to further deteriorate the capital
structure of the company in the medium term.  While assigning the
ratings, ICRA has also taken into consideration the vulnerability
of Indian Bearing industry to downturn in the global automobile
industry and competition from cheaper Chinese imports.

However, the ratings factor in RTPL's experienced management and
its long standing expertise in manufacturing quality bearing races
at competitive prices.  The company enjoys preferred supplier
status with major bearing companies like SKF and FAG bearings.
The ratings also derive comfort from the fixed conversion prices
the company charges, largely insulating it from raw material price
fluctuations.

Ravi Technoforge Private Limited was established in 1990 by
Mr. Amrutlal Bharadia to manufacture high quality forged & turned
bearing races.  The company is based in Rajkot, Gujarat where it
has 2 owned and 3 rented units (installed capacity: 7200 MT/annum)
to produce about 180 varieties of ball, taper roller, cylindrical
and spherical bearings races.  The company is Green Flow & Zero
Defect supplier to SKF group and Certified Quality Supplier for
FAG Bearings globally.

For year ending March 2009, the company reported a net profit of
INR32.2 million on a turnover of INR438.5 million.  The net profit
was INR11.1 million over a turnover of INR233.7 million in FY08.

LEGACY GROUP: PDIC Asks SEC to Turn Over Sequestered Yacht
----------------------------------------------------------
The Philippine Deposit Insurance Corp. requested the Securities
and Exchange Commission on Wednesday to turn over to the PDIC a
yacht owned by the closed Bank of East Asia Inc. in Minglanilla,
Cebu, an affiliate of the Legacy Group, according to The Daily
Tribune.

According to the report, PDIC told SEC Chairman Fe Barin that
during the inventory conducted at the Bank of East Asia, it found
that the vessel, M/Yacht Vijin, was among the missing assets of
the bank.

The PDIC, says the Tribune, recently learned that the vessel was
sighted inside one of the properties allegedly owned by Legacy
Group founder Celso de los Angeles located in Punta Engano,
Mactan, Cebu.  The property, however, was sequestered by the SEC,
the report notes.

                        About Legacy Group

Headquartered in Quezon City, Philippines, The Legacy Group --
http://www.legacy.com.ph/thelegacy.html-- was a conglomerate of
banks and pre-need companies.  The banks offered various financial
products and the pre-need firms offered pension, education and
memorial plans.  Other members of The Group provided 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
were spread out through the Legacy chain of banks to keep each
deposit within the maximum limit of the PDIC.

Celso G. de los Angeles, Jr. owns 13 banks with 29 branches
nationwide under the Legacy banner.

In 2008, the BSP shuttered the Rural Bank of Paranaque; Rural Bank
of Bais (in Negros Oriental province); Pilipino Rural Bank (in

E.SUN FINANCIAL: Fitch Assigns Individual Rating at 'C/D'
---------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has assigned Taiwan's E.Sun Financial Holding Co.
Ltd a Long-term foreign currency Issuer Default Rating of 'BBB-',
a Short-term foreign currency IDR of 'F3', a National Long-term
rating of 'A(twn)', a National Short-term rating of 'F1(twn)', an
Individual rating of 'C/D', a Support rating of '5' and a 'NF'
Support Rating Floor.  The Outlook is Stable.  Meanwhile, the
agency has also assigned National Long-term ratings of 'A-(twn)'
to ESFHC's two subordinated bonds, with a respective size of
TWD5.0 billion and TWD0.5 billion to mature in December 2012 and
December 2014.

ESFHC's ratings reflect its good brand reputation in the Taiwanese
finance industry (particularly in regards to its high customer-
service standards), as well as its stringent risk management
practices (manifested in the group's superior asset quality, among
the best of local banking groups), and its limited financial
leverage and satisfactory liquidity profile.  Offsetting factors,
however, are low profitability and a relatively small franchise,
particularly in the corporate segments.  ESFHC has positioned
itself as a niche banking service provider, and has a strong
foothold in credit cards, residential mortgages and SME lending.
Leveraging off its retail-oriented customer base, the group aims
to grow non-interest income by cross-selling increasingly fee-
based banking products with an emphasis on bancassurance.

ESFHC's profitability in H109 was low (ROAA of about 0.21%
annualized), albeit up from that for 2008 (ROAA of 0.13%) when the
company was particularly proactive in provisioning in the face of
the sharp economic downturn.  NPLs were steady at 0.9% (of gross
loans) at end-Q109, a marginal increase from 0.89% at end-2007.
Meanwhile, loan loss reserve coverage of NPLs was reasonably
strong at 72% (end-2007: 54%).  Compressed net interest margins --
a result of the extremely low interest rate environment --
continued to depress bottom-line performance in Q109, although
margins appear to have now bottomed as deposits are gradually re-
priced downward and as the company actively manages down its
costly time deposits.  Given the company's well-managed loans
quality, Fitch expects ESFHC to deliver modest profitability in
2009 in spite of the challenging operating environment.

ESFHC has a satisfactory liquidity profile and uses only limited
financial leverage.  Its double leverage ratio stood at a low 104%
at end-March 2009.  The company's holdings of cash and the
availability of subsidiary upstreaming comfortably covers its
interest expenses. ESFHC is adequately capitalized -- its 125%
regulated sum-of-parts capital ratio at end-March 2009 was
comfortably above the regulatory minimum requirement of 100%.  All
operating subsidiaries are satisfactorily capitalized,
particularly its principal subsidiary E. Sun Bank (Individual
rating 'C') with a Tier-1 ratio of 7.8% at end-Q109 (Total CAR of
10.8%).

ESFHC is a bank-centric financial holding company.  It provides
banking and securities brokerage, insurance brokerage and venture
capital services through its fully-owned subsidiaries E. Sun Bank,
E. Sun Securities Corporation (National Long-term rating:
'A(twn)') and other smaller subsidiaries.  ESFHC has a diversified
shareholding structure, with management and employees owning 20%-
25% of its shares at end-March 2009.  Foreign investors Prudential
Plc (Long-term IDR: 'AA-') and Morgan Stanley Apollo Holdings
(Cayman) Limited held around 4% and 2.6% stakes, respectively, at
end-March 2009.


ROYAL BANK: ANZ Nears Taiwan Unit Acquisition Deal
--------------------------------------------------
Andreea Papuc and Iain Wilson at Bloomberg News, citing Dow Jones
Newswires, reports that Australia & New Zealand Banking Group Ltd.
is close to acquiring Royal Bank of Scotland Plc's Taiwanese
banking assets.

According to Bloomberg, Dow Jones reported that ANZ may announce
the purchase of RBS's Taiwanese banking assets as early as next
week.  Bloomberg relates Dow Jones said in a report carried in The
Australian newspaper that the Taiwan unit will be the first of
several retail and commercial banking assets in Asia sold by RBS,
which is seeking to trim its operations in 36 countries.

Bloomberg discloses three people familiar with the plan said this
month that ANZ may buy RBS's units in at least five Asian
countries as the government-controlled bank splits its assets in
the region to attract buyers.  Bloomberg notes the people said ANZ
is in advanced negotiations to acquire RBS's retail and
commercial-banking units in Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Vietnam
and Indonesia.

"Discussions with RBS are continuing on selected Asian assets, and
they're progressing well," Paul Edwards, a spokesman for
Melbourne-based ANZ told Bloomberg News, declining to comment
specifically about RBS's Taiwan operations.

Insurance and Manufacturing.  On October 17, 2007, RFS Holdings
B.V. (RFS Holdings), a company jointly owned by RBS, Fortis N.V.,
Fortis SA/NV and Banco Santander S.A. (the Consortium Banks) and
controlled by RBS, completed the acquisition of ABN AMRO Holding
N.V. (ABN AMRO).  In July 2008, the company disposed its entire
interest in Global Voice Group Ltd.

As previously reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Europe,
risky investing and lending by the previous management brought RBS
close to collapse and required a public bail-out.  RBS is now 70%
owned by the government.


SHIN KONG: TWD Interest Rates May Offset Capital Raise Benefits
---------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has said that Shin Kong Financial Holding Co. Ltd.'s
successful completion of its new share issue of TWD13.1 billion
(29.7% of its equity at end-Q109) will help strengthen the balance
sheet of its wholly-owned Shin Kong Life Insurance Company Ltd.
The proceeds of the fundraising are to be used solely to add to
SKL's capital.

In Fitch's view, the capital enhancement deed is essential to
restore SKL's capitalization to an adequate level.  However, the
agency remains concerned that prevailing extremely low TWD
interest rates will continue to pressure Taiwanese life insurers'
(including SKL) already significant negative interest carry and
earnings performance.  This could potentially offset the benefits
of the new capital increase.

SKL's Insurer Financial Strength rating and National IFS rating
remain at 'BB+' and 'A-(twn)', respectively.  The Outlook on the
ratings is Negative.

                         *********

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.
