ACL GROUP: To Cut Up to 120 Jobs
--------------------------------
The Australian Associated Press reports that the receivers of
Automotive Components Limited said that up to 120 workers will
lose their jobs as part of the company's restructuring.

"(We) are currently estimating between 80 and 120 positions will
be made redundant and are hoping that many of these will be filled
by voluntary redundancies," the AAP cited receivers Matt Byrnes
and Greg Keith of Grant Thorntonsaid in a statement.

According to the report, the receivers said that about 60 of ACL's
275 workers are interested in a voluntary redundancy.  The
receivers said that redundancies will be enforced after a
September 28 deadline if the required number is not forthcoming
voluntarily, the AAP relates.

administration.  Greg Keith and Matt Byrnes of Grant Thornton
Melbourne have been appointed receivers and managers of the
company.


CONCENTRIC ASIA: In Administration; Smith Hancock Appointed
-----------------------------------------------------------
James Thomson at SmartCompany reports that the collapse of
Concentric Asia Pacific has put the poor state of Australia's car
sector in the spotlight again.

Concentric Asia Pacific was placed in the hands of administrator
Peter Hillig of Sydney accounting firm Smith Hancock on
September 8, the report said.  The company is continuing to trade
while the administration process gets under way, SmartCompany
noted.

Concentric Asia Pacific -- http://www.concentric.com.au/-- is a
privately owned Australian company founded in 1983.  The company
provides computer design software and support to the automotive
industry.  It also sold products and services to the defence

GREAT SOUTHERN: New Major Bidder for Timber Assets Emerged
----------------------------------------------------------
The Sydney Morning Herald reports that Perth businessman John
Poynton and forester Tony Jack have emerged as major new bidders
for the timber assets of failed agribusiness company Great
Southern.

Mr. Poynton, a former stockbroker and now head of Azure Capital, a
boutique corporate adviser, is backing Mr. Jack's Black Tree
group, the report says.  Mr. Jack is a former director of
Integrated Tree Cropping, now ITC, which was taken over by Futuris
Corporation, now Elders.

The report notes Mr. Jack said the partners had been working on a
proposal to restructure Great Southern for some time.

According to the Herald, Mr. Poynton said the group had been
working with the receivers and growers' representatives, and had
proposed a ''whole-of-problem solution'' that recognised the
interests of growers and creditors such as the banks.

The new group, says the Herald, is a competitor to the
frontrunner, Pulpwood Plantations.

The Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific, citing The Australian,
reported on Aug. 17, 2009, that Gordon Martin, chairman of a local
chemical group, set up Pulpwood Plantations to put between AU$10
million and AU$20 million into the Great Southern schemes.

Mr. Martin said that a group called Primary Securities, which has
experience with Managed Investment Schemes and was independent of
his organization, was willing to be nominated as Responsible
Entity to act as manager of the six schemes, which appear to
account for around half of Great Southern's timber schemes.

As reported in the TCR-AP on September 9, 2009, The Australian
Associated Press said the receivers of Great Southern have started
selling all, or parts, of the failed agricultural projects
operator.

Receiver McGrathNicol have called for interest from third
parties to buy all or part of the company: the land owned by Great
Southern entities and other of its assets, including assets
associated with Great Southern's managed investment schemes, the
AAP said.

According to the AAP, McGrathNicol has also called for expressions
of interest from parties who may be interested in replacing Great
Southern Managers Australia Ltd (GSMAL) as the responsible entity
for all or some of the managed investment schemes, in combination
with the sales process or separately.

RAPTIS GROUP: Administrators Seek Creditors Trust Approval Today
----------------------------------------------------------------
The administrators of Raptis Group Limited will put forward a plan
to quarantine the group's debt to allow shares to resume trading,
goldcoast.com.au reports.

The report says administrators Brian Silvia and Andrew Cummins, of
BRI Ferrier, will ask creditors today, September 18, to vote on
establishing a creditors trust.

The trust, according to the report, will include 35 million
preference shares worth 1c each of which will be sold or converted
into ordinary shares at a later date.  The report states this will
dilute founder Jim Raptis's 62% holding in the company.

Creditors trusts carry the debt of a company, leaving the
corporate shell with no liabilities, the report notes.

                           *     *     *

The Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific reported on Feb. 5,
2009, that Raptis Group appointed Brian Silvia and Andrew Cummins
of BRI Ferrier (NSW) Pty Ltd as administrators to the company.

Raptis Group has in excess of 90 subsidiary entities, with all
assets having been mortgaged to 27 banks and financiers owed in
excess of AU$940 million, Mr. Silvia said.  Raptis Group,
according to the Australian, has more than AU$1 billion in total
liabilities.

As reported in the TCR-AP on April 2, 2009, The Australian said
Raptis Group's creditors approved a restructure plan.  The
proposed deed of company arrangement (DOCA) was approved on
March 31 by two meetings of creditors on the Gold Coast.

The DOCA involves a debt-for-equity swap that will result in
creditors owning 40 million shares in the publicly listed group.
It also paves the way for the group's relisting on the Australian
Stock Exchange, after being suspended since September 12 last
year.


STORM FINANCIAL: ASIC to Continue Probe on Firm for Six Weeks
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Herald Sun reports that the Australian Securities and
Investments Commission will continue its investigation into the
collapse of Storm Financial over the next six weeks before
deciding whether to pursue legal action.

The report notes ASIC chairman Tony D'Aloisio on September 16 told
the federal parliamentary inquiry into financial products and
services that its probe into Storm Financial was one of the
largest in history.

"The workload is progressing quickly given the number of potential
parties involved and the number of investors," Mr. D'Aloisio told
the inquiry in Canberra.  "Let me reassure the investors that we
have their interests as our primary concern."

Mr. D'Aloisio, as cited by the Herald Sun, said ASIC had reviewed
the status of its investigation earlier this month including the
possibility of legal proceedings and was satisfied with the
"considerable progress" being made.

"But we felt that additional investigative work and legal analysis
was needed before the commission could be in a position to make
decisions, so we set the next six weeks for that additional work
to be completed." the report quoted Mr. D'Aloisio as saying.

Mr. D'Aloisio said ASIC would then re-assess its progress, the
report notes.

According to the report, Mr. D'Aloisio said the liquidator
examinations into the Storm implosion were due to begin on
September 24 and could throw up additional evidence.

The parliamentary inquiry is due to report by November 23, the
report says.

                       About Storm Financial

as of June 30, 2007.

                           *     *     *

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

Storm later closed its business and fired all of its 115 staff.
The closure, the company's administrators said, was due to the
significant reduction in Storm's income resulting in trading
losses being incurred "at a rate which the company could no longer
absorb."

The TCR-AP reported on Jan. 22, 2009, that the Commonwealth Bank
of Australia, Storm's largest creditor, lodged a AU$27.09 million
debt claim at a first meeting of the company's creditors on
January 20.  Administrators Worrells Solvency & Forensic
Accountants said the group's remaining creditors are owed AU$51
million, plus a provision for dividends of AU$10 million.

On March 27, 2009, the Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific
reported that the Australian Securities and Investments Commission
won its bid to liquidate Storm Financial Group after the Federal
Court ruled that the Company be wound up.  Federal court Justice
John Logan appointed Ivor Worrell and Raj Khatri of Worrells
Solvency and Forensic Accountants as liquidators for the Company.

BHAGAT AROMATICS: CRISIL Places 'BB' Rating on INR27.5MM Term Loan
------------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its ratings of 'BB/Stable/P4+' to the bank
facilities of Bhagat Aromatics Ltd.

   Facilities                              Ratings
   ----------                              -------
   INR17.5 Million Cash Credit Limit       BB/Stable (Assigned)
   INR27.5 Million Term Loan *             BB/Stable (Assigned)
   INR52.5 Million Export Packing Credit   P4+ (Assigned)
   INR20.0 Million Standby Line of Credit  P4+ (Assigned)
   INR60.0 Million Bills Discounting       P4+ (Assigned)
   INR20.0 Million Letter of Credit        P4+ (Assigned)
   INR37.5 Million Bank Guarantee          P4+ (Assigned)

   * * Including a proposed limit of INR10.0 Million

The ratings reflect BAL's weak financial risk profile, and
exposure to risks relating to moderate scale of operations and
intense competition in the aroma chemicals industry, and
fluctuations in the value of the Indian rupee.  These weaknesses
are, however, partially offset by the benefits that the company
derives from its diversified revenue profile, and established
relationships with customers.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that BAL will maintain a stable business risk
profile over the medium term on the back of established and
diversified end-user industry customer base.  The outlook may be
revised to 'Positive' if equity infusions by the promoters
strengthen BAL's capital structure and financial risk profile.
Conversely, the outlook may be revised to 'Negative' if BAL
undertakes large debt-funded capital expenditure, leading to
deterioration in its financial risk profile.

                       About Bhagat Aromatics

Incorporated in 1989, BAL manufactures menthol crystals,
peppermint oil, essential oils, and aroma chemicals which find
application in pharmaceutical, food, tobacco, and cosmetic
industry. Its plant at Noida (Uttar Pradesh) has a capacity of 70
tonnes per month (tpm), which is likely to be expanded to 150 tpm
in 2009-10 (refers to financial year, April 1 to March 31). BAL is
expected to report a profit after tax (PAT) of INR4.3 million on
net sales of INR433 million for 2008-09, as against a PAT of
INR4.7 million on net sales of INR448 million for 2007-08.


CORVINE CHEMICALS: CRISIL Assigns 'B+' Rating on INR20MM LT Loans
-----------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its 'B+/Negative/P4' ratings to the bank
facilities of Corvine Chemicals & Pharmaceuticals Ltd.

   Facilities                         Ratings
   ----------                         -------
   INR20 Million Long-Term Loans      B+/Negative (Assigned)
   INR50 Million Cash Credit/         B+/Negative (Assigned)
                  Packing Credit
   INR40 Million Letter of Credit     P4 (Assigned)

The ratings reflect Corvine's limited financial flexibility
because of its small capital base, revenue concentration, and
pricing inflexibility because of exposure to intense competition.
The impact of these weaknesses is mitigated by the company's
healthy customer base and longstanding relationships with
customers.

Outlook: Negative

CRISIL expects Corvine's liquidity to remain weak. The ratings
could be downgraded in case of further decline in the company's
cash accruals or profitability.  Conversely, the outlook could be
revised to 'Stable' if the company registers more-than-expected
revenues, improves profits, or diversifies its revenue profile
significantly.

                      About Corvine Chemicals

Corvine was incorporated in 1992. In 1994, the company was
acquired by Mr. M M Reddy, Mr. Raji Reddy, and Mr. B G Manohar.
The company manufactures chemicals used in the pharmaceuticals and
auto industries. Corvine's key products are sodium azide, trityl
chloride, and ciprofloxacin.

In 2008-09 (refers to financial year, April 1 to March 31), the
company reported a net profit of INR5.8 million on net sales of
INR297 million, against a net profit of INR3.5 million on net
sales of INR274 million in the previous year.


LODHA IMPEX: CRISIL Assigns 'P4' Ratings to Various Bank Debts
--------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its ratings of 'P4' to the various bank
facilities of Lodha Impex.

   Facilities                              Ratings
   ----------                              -------
   INR90.0 Million Export Packing Credit   P4(Assigned)
   INR20.0 Million Bill Discounting        P4(Assigned)
   INR30.0 Million Proposed Short Term     P4(Assigned)
                    Bank Loan Facility
   INR2.0 Million Inland LC/BG             P4(Assigned)

The ratings reflect Lodha's weak financial risk profile, and
exposure to pricing pressures and risks relating to slowdown in
the textile industry.  These weaknesses are, however, partially
offset by the benefits that Lodha derives from the vast experience
of its promoters in the readymade garments export business.

                         About Lodha Impex

Lodha was incorporated as a proprietorship firm in 1993 by
Mr. Dalpat Lodha to manufacture ladies garments, specially skirts,
dresses, blouses and casualwear.  The firm has manufacturing
plants in Jaipur and Mumbai, with a combined capacity of 3.6
million pieces per annum.

For 2008-09 (refers to financial year, April 1 to March 31), Lodha
Impex reported a book profit of INR6 million on net sales of
INR299.4 million, as against a book profit of INR2.4 million on
net sales of INR173 million for 2007-08.


T & T PROJECTS: CRISIL Rates INR70 Million Cash Credit at 'BB'
--------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its 'BB/Negative/P4+' ratings to the bank
facilities of T & T Projects Ltd.

   Facilities                         Ratings
   ----------                         -------
   INR70.00 Million Cash Credit       BB/Negative (Assigned)
   INR388.00 Million Bank Guarantee   P4+ (Assigned)

The ratings reflect T&T's small scale of operations, customer and
geographic concentration in revenue profile, working capital-
intensive operations, and low operating efficiency.  The impact of
these weaknesses is mitigated by the company's moderate financial
risk profile marked by low gearing and average debt protection
measures, strong order book, and the benefits that the company
derives from its promoters' experience in executing turnkey
projects.

Outlook: Negative

CRISIL believes that T&T will continue to face liquidity
pressures, as its incremental working capital requirement are
likely to be high given the expected growth in its operating
income and the working capital intensity of its operations.  The
ratings may be downgraded if there is significant weakening in the
company's liquidity. Conversely, the outlook may be revised to
'Stable' if the company's fund-based bank lines are enhanced, or
it receives fresh equity infusion.

                       About T & T Projects

Set up in 1980 by the Jalan family, T&T (formerly Trade &
Technology) undertakes execution of turnkey projects for state
electricity boards and civil work contracts involving construction
of buildings.  The company only undertakes projects funded by the
state or central governments. T&T's operations are concentrated in
Northeast India.  In December 2008, the company received an order
of INR1.4 billion for electrification in four rural districts of
Mizoram.  The project is expected to be completed by February
2011.

T&T reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR10.16 million on net
sales of INR268 million for 2007-08 (refers to financial year,
April 1 to March 31), against a PAT of INR5.73 million on net
sales of INR176 million for 2006-07.

BANK TABUNGAN: Moody's Raises Foreign Cur. Deposit Rating to Ba3
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has changed the credit ratings of 10
Indonesian banks.

Specifically, Moody's has lowered the global local currency
deposit ratings to Baa3 from Baa2 for the four state-owned banks -
Bank Mandiri, Bank Negara Indonesia, Bank Rakyat Indonesia and
Bank Tabungan Negara.  The revised ratings carry stable outlooks.

At the same time, Moody's has confirmed the Baa3 GLC deposit
ratings for six banks - Bank Central Asia, Bank CIMB-Niaga, Bank
Danamon Indonesia, Bank Internasional Indonesia, Bank Permata and
Pan Indonesia Bank -- with stable outlooks.

In addition, Moody's has raised the foreign currency long-term
deposit ratings to Ba3 from B1 for all 10 banks.  The revised
ratings carry stable outlooks.

The banks are Bank Central Asia, Bank CIMB-Niaga, Bank Danamon
Indonesia, Bank Internasional Indonesia, Bank Mandiri, Bank Negara
Indonesia, Bank Permata, Bank Rakyat Indonesia, Bank Tabungan
Negara and Pan Indonesia Bank.

Furthermore, Moody's has raised the foreign currency issuer
ratings for Bank Central Asia, Bank CIMB-Niaga and Bank
Internasional Indonesia to Ba1 from Ba2 and the foreign currency
subordinated debt ratings for Bank CIMB-Niaga and Bank
Internasional Indonesia to Ba1 from Ba2.  The revised ratings
carry stable outlooks.

The rating actions are attributable to two factors.

First, to conclude the review initiated on May 20, 2009 to examine
the systemic support assumption used in Moody's Joint-Default
Analysis application.  These actions are part of a Moody's global
initiative and therefore do not reflect any deterioration in
Indonesia's macro-fundamentals nor any change in the government's
behavior towards the banking system.

Second, the rating changes also incorporate similar actions taken
on Indonesia's sovereign ratings on September 16, 2009.
Specifically, these ratings were raised: foreign currency and
local currency government bond to Ba2 from Ba3; foreign currency
deposit ceiling to Ba3 from B1 and the foreign currency bond
ceiling to Ba1 from Ba2.  See press release of September 16, 2009,
for greater discussion on sovereign issues.

Beatrice Woo, Moody's Vice President and Senior Credit Officer,
explains the rating actions below.

           Change in Systemic Support Indicator for JDA

In May 2009, Moody's commented on its global review of the support
capacity of a government and a central bank for its banking system
in the special comment titled "Financial Crisis More Closely
Aligns Bank Credit Risk and Government Ratings in Non-Aaa
Countries."

Consistent with the analytical criteria specified in that report
and in light of Indonesia's current situation and future
prospects, Moody's has concluded that the systemic support input
for Indonesian bank ratings be changed to Baa3 from Baa2, the
former being two notches above Indonesia's local currency
government debt rating of Ba2.  Accordingly, Indonesian bank
ratings are affected as the input is applied in the JDA
application.

In Moody's view, Indonesia has a highly supportive banking
framework, evidenced by government behavior towards the banks
during the 1997 Asian financial crisis as well as during this
current downturn.  As early as September 2008, the government had
been proactive in establishing support measures to stabilize and
provide liquidity to the banking system.

Among its programs are an increase in the maximum amount of
deposits insured to IDR2 billion from IDR100 million, the
eligibility of current credits as collateral for short-term
liquidity facilities, and the lowering of minimum reserve
requirements for Indonesian rupiah and foreign currency.  In
addition, the government has secured USD5.5 billion in contingent
lines of support from the Asian Development Bank, World Bank and
others.

In the Special Comment, Moody's points out that the appropriate
reference rating for the capacity of a national government to
provide support to banks in a prolonged and widespread crisis
would be aligned with or constrained by the government's own debt
rating.  However, Moody's also believes that this rating could be
adjusted, usually positively, to reflect the non-fiscally
dependent measures that many central banks and governments can
deploy to support banks.

In deciding whether the local currency-denominated deposits of a
bank can be rated higher than the local currency-denominated debt
issued by the national government due to systemic support, Moody's
considers a number of factors for each banking system.  These are
the size of the banking sector relative to the government's
resources, the level of stress in the banking system and in the
economy, the foreign currency obligations of the banking system
relative to the government's own foreign currency resources,
political and historical patterns, and the possibility of any
drastic shift in government priorities.

With regard to Indonesia, the banking system is not large, as
shown by the ratio of banking assets equaling 47% of GDP.  This
ratio has halved from that during the 1997 crisis.  For the 10
Moody's rated banks, their creditworthiness is modest, as measured
by their weighted average bank financial strength rating (BFSR) of
D.  These banks account for close to two thirds of system
deposits.

At the same time, the level of credit stress in the banking system
has increased moderately following the worldwide recession.  The
system non-performing loans ratio inched up to 4.06% at July 2009
from 3.2% at end-2008.  Furthermore, rapid loan growth --
averaging 20% annually over the past five years -- could be a
potential source of higher credit costs.

However, the banks have adequate capital buffer for their rating
ranges; system capital adequacy ratio was 17.34% at July 2009.  In
addition, the foreign currency obligations of the banking system
-- 14% of liabilities -- are not stretched.  As 99% of this
funding comprises deposits, this source is regarded as more
stable.

Finally, the political and historical patterns for assessing
Indonesia as a highly supportive banking framework are compelling.
During the 1997 crisis, the government issued a blanket guarantee
which covered banks' liabilities in Indonesian rupiah and foreign
currency for both depositors and creditors.  Since 2004, small
banks have been closed and one bank recently liquidated, but they
are insufficiently significant to cause a systemic stress.

Furthermore, the banking landscape is concentrated at the large
end, with the top 10 banks -- out of a total of 122 players --
controlling nearly two thirds of system deposits.  In Moody's
opinion, this structure provides huge incentives for the
government to support the banks.

In conclusion, the Baa3 systemic support input for Indonesian
banks is two notches above the Ba2 local currency government debt
rating.  The uplift is predicated on Moody's view that the risk of
a system-wide banking crisis is low and that the likelihood of the
government "ring-fencing" its own fiscal position from the banking
system is medium.

The last rating actions on all 10 banks were taken on May 20, 2009
when their global local currency deposit ratings were placed on
review for possible downgrade.  At the same time, the Ba2 foreign
currency subordinated debt ratings of Bank CIMB-Niaga and Bank
Internasional Indonesia were placed on review for possible
downgrade.

Bank Central Asia, headquartered in Jakarta, had assets of
IDR255.1 trillion at June 2009.

Moody's Investors Service has upgraded Indosat Finance Company BV
and Indosat International Finance Company BV senior unsecured
foreign currency ratings to Ba1 from Ba2.  The bonds are
irrevocably and unconditionally guaranteed by PT Indosat Tbk.

At the same time, Moody's has affirmed the Ba1 local currency
corporate family rating of Indosat with a stable outlook.

This rating action follows Moody's decision to upgrade Indonesia's
Ba2 foreign currency sovereign ceiling to Ba1.  The ratings
outlook is stable, consistent with the outlook on Indosat and on
the country foreign currency ceiling.

The last rating action with respect to Indosat was taken on
March 19, 2009, when Moody's said that Indosat's proposed covenant
amendment did not have impact on the ratings.

Indosat is a fully-integrated telecommunications network and
services provider in Indonesia.  The company is the second largest
cellular operator in the country, as well as its leading provider
of international call services.  It also provides multi-media,
data communications, and internet services.

PT PERUSAHAAN: Moody's Upgrades Corporate Family Rating to 'Ba2'
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has upgraded to Ba2 from Ba3 the

Perusahaan Listrik Negara.  This rating action follows Moody's
decision to upgrade to Ba2 from Ba3 the Indonesian government's
long-term foreign-currency and local-currency ratings.  The
ratings outlook is stable, consistent with the outlook on the
government ratings.

"Given PLN's 100% ownership by the Ministry of State-Owned
Enterprises (MSOE), its strategic importance as Indonesia's only
vertically integrated electricity utility, as well as the ongoing
government support through subsidies to ensure its financial
viability and operational soundness, Moody's considers PLN's
rating to be closely linked to the government's credit quality,"
says Moody's lead analyst for the company, Jennifer Wong, adding
"Accordingly, an upgrade in the rating of the Indonesian
government led to an upgrade in PLN's rating."

Moody's last rating action with regard to PLN occurred on 11 June
2009, when the outlook on the company's Ba3 corporate family and
senior unsecured ratings were changed to positive from stable.

PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara is an Indonesian state-owned
vertically integrated electricity utility with a generation
capacity of over 22,000MW.  It is a monopoly operator of
transmission and distribution networks and is the country's
largest electricity producer.  The government -- represented by
the Ministry of State-Owned Enterprises -- has complete ownership.


* INDONESIA: Moody's Upgrades Sovereign Debt Ratings to 'Ba2'
------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has upgraded Indonesia's foreign- and
local-currency sovereign debt ratings to Ba2, from Ba3.  The
outlook is stable.

"The upgrade was prompted by the Indonesian economy's relatively
strong resilience to the global recession as well as its healthy
medium-term growth prospects," says Aninda Mitra, a Moody's Vice
President and Sovereign Analyst for Indonesia.

"A pick-up in economic activity to its recent rate of 5.5% is
expected in 2010, and Indonesia's overall growth dynamic is better
positioned to face medium-term global uncertainties than many of
its Ba-rated peers, as well as most regional economies," he adds.

"Indonesia's macro-economic management is also improving, and its
appropriate policy stance is expected to persist in the
foreseeable future," says Mr. Mitra, adding, "These developments
highlight the growing credibility and predictability of government
policies, and are expected to ensure macro-economic stability."

Recently concluded elections will return to power the pro-reform
incumbent president.  According to the analyst, this result will
broadly ensure policy continuity and possibly lead to a deepening
of policy and structural reforms.

The upgrade was also prompted by an improving credit profile
derived from Indonesia's ongoing policy prudence, structural
reforms, and appropriate debt management.

Relatively low budget deficits and strong economic growth have
lowered Indonesia's general government debt- and private external
debt to lower than its peer medians.  Meanwhile, the government's
debt affordability is expected to remain stable.

"Although Indonesia has faced more market volatility than many of
its peers, its declining financial indebtedness and the
authorities' pro-active and flexible policies provides fundamental
credit support," says Mr. Mitra.  "Nonetheless, the need for a
strong foreign currency reserve position coupled with a more
developed domestic capital market and institutional investor base
are assuming greater significance if sovereign creditworthiness is
to further improve," he adds.

Systemic risk from terrorist attacks has been contained by the
country's increasingly effective political institutions and
security apparatus.  In addition, potential contingent liabilities
associated with the banking and state enterprise sector did not
significantly threaten the sovereign's credit fundamentals.

In conjunction with this upgrade of the sovereign rating, Moody's
has also upgraded Indonesia's foreign currency country ceiling to
Ba1 and foreign currency bank deposit ceiling to Ba3.  The outlook
on these ceilings is stable.  The local currency country ceiling
of Baa2 and the government's short-term ratings of not-Prime
remain unaffected by these actions.

Moody's last rating action on Indonesia was taken on 11 June 2009,
at which time the outlook on the Ba3 sovereign ratings was changed
to positive.

AIFUL CORPORATION: Fitch Affirms Issuer Default Rating at 'BB'
--------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed and simultaneously withdrawn AIFUL
CORPORATION's Long-term foreign and local currency Issuer Default
Ratings of 'BB' with Negative Outlooks, and its Short-term foreign
and local currency IDRs of 'B'.  Also, the ratings of Aiful's
senior unsecured notes have been affirmed at 'BB' and withdrawn.
Fitch will no longer provide rating coverage of this issuer.

Fitch expects the operating environment for Aiful and its peers in
the Japanese consumer finance companies sector to remain harsh and
even worsen as the revised money-lending business control law
(MLBL) comes into full effect by June 2010.  Fitch expects the
full implementation of the MLBL to lower the revenues of Japanese
CFCs further, while credit costs, in the form of delinquencies and
increased claims/reserves for the reimbursement of previously
excessive interest, will increase.  The CFC sector therefore faces
a bleak future.

The combination of tight credit underwriting, lower interest
margins and funding constraints, amid a shrinking market, continue
to reduce Aiful's receivables and revenues, while high Kabarai
claims keep credit costs and overall expenses at elevated levels.
Aiful continues to face a challenging environment in the short-to-
medium term.

Aiful's equity to asset ratio increased to 25.8% at end-June 2009,
from 23.9% at end-March 2009, from retained earnings and declining
receivables/assets.  However, as the Kabarai claims increased in
the first quarter of the financial year ending March 2010
(Q1FYE10) and with its comparatively lower reserves for future
Kabarai claims, the positive impact of the higher equity/asset
ratio is diluted by a possible need to increase its Kabarai
reserves in future, in Fitch's opinion.  Aiful reported a net
profit of JPY4.9bn for Q1FYE10, down 72% over Q1FYE09.

Fitch continues to believe that securing stable long-term funding
will remain an important issue for the overall CFC sector for
foreseeable future, and for Aiful, which is not part of any
banking group this remains a key issue.  Fitch understands that
Aiful's short-term debt due in the next 12 months (based on end-
June 2009) can be fully covered by the repayments by its
borrowers, if the same level of collections as in Q1FYE10, are
repeated in next 12 months.

Aiful is the second largest CFC in Japan, in terms of assets
(based on end-March 2009).  Besides the core consumer finance
business, Aiful also has a large instalment finance and credit
card business through its subsidiary, LIFE, in which it holds
95.88% stake.


JAPAN DIGITAL: FSA Revokes Business License
-------------------------------------------
Kyodo News reports that the Financial Services Agency has revoked
the license of Japan Digital Contents Trust Inc. due partly to its
plunging net assets.

The FSA said the company, which is listed on the Mothers section
of the Tokyo Stock Exchange, is in breach of the investment trust
law because its net assets fell below the legally mandated line of
JPY100 million, Kyodo relates.

Kyodo notes the FSA said the company also infringed the law by
managing the funds it had collected from investors in a sloppy and
illicit manner.

Reuters reported on September 4 that Japan Digital has lowered its
mid-year consolidated outlook for revenue from JPY146 million to
JPY81 million, operating loss from JPY184 million to JPY296
million, ordinary loss from JPY184 million to JPY320 million and
net loss from JPY184 million to JPY412 million, for the fiscal
year ending March 31, 2010.

Reuters said the Company also lowered its full-year consolidated
outlook for revenue from JPY 550 million to JPY 144 million,
operating loss from JPY80 million to JPY504 million, ordinary loss
from JPY80 million to JPY521 million and net loss from JPY80
million to JPY604 million, for the fiscal year ending March 31,
2010.

According to Reuters, the Company lowered its mid-year and full-
year consolidated outlook mainly due to the decreased sales, the
acceptance of business suspension orders, as well as the
extraordinary loss.

JLOC VII: Fitch Takes Rating Actions on Various Classes of Notes
----------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has downgraded the Class D notes of JLOC VII Limited
due May 2011 and maintained the Rating Watch Negative, following
the implementation of the recently published criteria for Japanese
CMBS surveillance.

Full details of the rating actions are:

  -- JPY0.18 billion* Class C Notes affirmed at 'AAA'; off RWN;
     Outlook Negative;

  -- JPY1.2 billion* Class D Notes downgraded to 'CCC' from
     'BBB+'; remains on RWN; assigned a Recovery Rating of 'RR2';
     and

  -- Class X Notes (interest-only) affirmed at 'AAA'; Outlook
     Stable.

  * as of September 15, 2009

The Class D notes have been downgraded reflecting Fitch's concerns
over potential recovery amounts from the defaulted loan backing
the transaction.  The loan is backed by a single-tenanted retail
property located in Kanagawa prefecture.  Fitch has maintained the
RWN on this class reflecting the possibility that further ratings
action may follow, depending on the progress of property
disposition.

The Class C notes have been affirmed given the very low loan to
value ratio.  However, the agency has assigned a Negative Outlook
to the class to reflect the short time to legal final maturity of
the transaction (May 2011).

Given the loan has already defaulted, Fitch has adopted a value
for the property which is 49.1% lower than the initial value - in
line with the recently released criteria.  This reflects Fitch's
view with regards to the current marketability of the collateral,
which is a single-tenanted retail property with limited usage.

At closing, the notes were backed by nine loans (including one
TBI) that are ultimately backed by 27 commercial real estate
properties in Japan.  Eight loans have been fully repaid and the
principal amounts of Class A and B notes have been fully redeemed.

For further information on Fitch's surveillance criteria and
methodology, please see the criteria report, "Criteria for
Japanese CMBS Surveillance" and the special report, "Application
and Impact of the Japanese CMBS Surveillance Criteria".  Note that
the reports have been published simultaneously and are intended to
be read in conjunction with each other.  The criteria report
describes the approach and framework of the methodology, and the
special report details the application and assumptions adopted for
the 2009 surveillance review.

Rating Outlooks have been published for all newly issued Asia
Pacific Structured Finance tranches since June 2008, and
concurrently with rating actions for tranches issued prior to June
2008.  Unlike a Rating Watch which notifies investors that there
is a reasonable probability of a rating change in the short term
as a result of a specific event, rating Outlooks indicate the
likely direction of any rating change over a one- to two-year
period.


JMAC 3: Fitch Downgrades Ratings on Various Classes of Notes
------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has downgraded Classes C and D trust beneficiary
interests of JMAC 3 Trust due November 2012, and removed all
classes from Rating Watch Negative following the implementation of
the recently published criteria for Japanese CMBS surveillance.
Full details of the rating actions are:

  -- JPY2.93 billion* Class A TBIs affirmed at 'AAA'; off RWN;
     Outlook Stable;

  -- JPY1.7billion* Class B TBIs affirmed at 'AA+'; off RWN;
     Outlook Stable;

  -- JPY1.7billion* Class C TBIs downgraded to 'A-' from 'A';
     off RWN; Outlook Negative;

  -- JPY1.25billion* Class D TBIs downgraded to 'BB' from 'BBB';
     off RWN; Outlook Negative; and

  -- Dividends-only Class X1 TBIs affirmed at 'AAA'; Outlook
     Stable.

  * as of September 15, 2009

Fitch has resolved the RWN status on all classes since it
considers the likelihood of additional rating action has reduced
given the cautious property revaluation adopted at this time.  The
agency has assigned Negative Outlooks to Classes C and D to
reflect the risk that the value of the two underlying collateral
properties may decline further under severe market conditions.

Fitch has analyzed the operating performances of the underlying
properties and revised the cash flow expectations downwards to
reflect recent performances.  In addition, the agency has revised
the cap rate of each property assuming disposition under stressed
market conditions, taking into consideration the remaining period
to each loan maturity.  As a result, Fitch has adopted values for
the properties which are 22.6% lower than the initial valuations
on average for the purpose of this review.

Fitch assigned ratings to this transaction in March 2005.  The
transaction was initially a securitization of 11 loans backed by
14 commercial properties.  To date, nine loans backed by 12
properties have been repaid and the transaction is currently
secured by two loans backed by two properties.

For further information on the surveillance criteria and
methodology, please see the criteria report, "Criteria for
Japanese CMBS Surveillance" and the special report, "Application
and Impact of the Japanese CMBS Surveillance Criteria".  Both
reports were published on 2 September 2009 and are available on
the agency's website, www.fitchratings.com.  Note that the reports
have been published simultaneously and are intended to be read in
conjunction with each other.  The criteria report describes the
approach and framework of the methodology, and the special report

surveillance review.

HYUNDAI MOTOR: Revives Plan to Build Car Factory in Brazil
----------------------------------------------------------
Hyundai Motor Company will begin construction of a factory in
Brazil next year after suspending the plan due to the global
recession, Korean Herald reports, citing Company Vice Chairman
Chung Eui-sun.  The report relates that in September 2008, the
company said it will to build a US$600 million small-car plant in
Brazil to tap rising vehicle demand in the country.  The report
notes that the plant was expected to be able to build 100,000
small cars a year starting from the first half of 2011.

According to the report, Hyundai boosted global market share to a
record 5% in the first half of this year as a weaker won helped it
raise spending in the U.S.  The Herald says that the car maker's
strength in emerging markets also helped the Korean company by
making it less vulnerable to the worst of auto market meltdown in
the U.S. and Europe.

"Hyundai seems to think it has leeway to embark on new projects,"
said Song Sang-hoon, the report quoted an analyst at Kyobo
Securities Co. in Seoul.  "Still, we need to see how the market
will change when the plant is completed and how Hyundai can secure
profit there," the analysts added.

CRAIGS DESIGN: Goes Into Receivership; Deloittes Named Receiver
---------------------------------------------------------------
Craigs Design & Print has been placed in receivership but the
receiver is hopeful the 132-year-old business will survive, Mark
Hotton at The Southland Times reports.

Joint receiver Murray Frost, of Deloittes, in Dunedin, was
appointed on September 15 along with Mike Horne after Craig
Printing Company directors asked their financiers to place the
company in receivership, the report said.

"We are optimistic the business will continue and there have been
a number of supportive comments made by customers during the day.
There's a lot of good feeling out there and that's what we want to
encourage because we want to keep as many jobs going in
Invercargill as we can," the Southland Times quoted Mr. Frost as
saying.

According to the report, a statement from the directors noted the
printing industry had been under "significant pressure" nationally
and the difficult trading conditions had impacted on Craigs as it
had on many other companies.

Mr. Frost said he was assessing the company's position and should
know more about the company's situation in about 10 days, the
report relates.

Founded in 1877, Craigs Design & Print --
http://www.craigprint.co.nz/-- is one of Southland's oldest
companies.  The company provides printing, design, and book
publishing.


LANE WALKER: Receiver Files Complaint with Fraud Office
-------------------------------------------------------
Gareth Vaughan at BusinessDay reports that the receiver of Lane
Walker Rudkin has laid a complaint with the Serious Fraud Office.

A spokesman for receiver BDO Spicers told BusinessDay that the
receiver had filed a complaint with the SFO but declined to
provide any details on the nature of the issues raised.

Acording to the report, National Distribution Union general
secretary Robert Reid said his union had long been calling for an
investigation into LWR's failure.

BusinessDay quoted Mr. Reid as saying that "We have had strong
feedback from the workers that they are wanting to see the whole
of the financial shambles investigated, given the workers were one
of the losers in the situation."

The Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific reported on April 30,
2009, that hundreds of staff are facing uncertain future as Lane
Walker Rudkin Industries went into receivership with debt of more
than NZ$50 million.

Brian Mayo-Smith and Stephen Tubbs, partners at BDO Spicers,
have been appointed joint receivers and managers of LWR.  The
appointment was made by LWR's bankers to protect the financial
position of LWR and its subsidiary Pod while issues facing the
group are resolved.  The LWR operations are currently unprofitable
and have incurred a substantial increase in bank debt.

Lane Walker Rudkin Industries Limited -- http://www.lwr.co.nz/--
is a diversified manufacturer of clothing and textiles with
operations in several locations in New Zealand and Australia.
Approximately 470 people are employed in textile, hosiery,
underwear and garment factories in Christchurch; garment

and a sports apparel factory in Brisbane.  Its subsidiary Pod
comprises fabric maker Designer Textiles International, clothing
designer and manufacturer Michele Ann and Mollers Homewares, all
located in  Auckland.  The group is owned by Christchurch
businessman Ken Anderson, who purchased LWR in 2001 and Pod in

OPI PACIFIC: Placed in Receivership; Moratorium Ends
----------------------------------------------------
OPI Pacific Finance Limited was placed in receivership on
September 15 by Perpetual Trust, the trustee for OPI's secured
debenture holders and unsecured note holders.  This ends the
moratorium arrangement that has been in place since May 2008.

Perpetual Trust has appointed Colin McCloy and Maurice Noone of
PricewaterhouseCoopers as receivers.

To date OPI's secured debenture holders have been repaid 22.17
cents in the dollar.  Unsecured note holders have not received any
payments.  The balance owing to OPI's secured debenture holders
amounts to approximately $200.1 million and $56.7 million to
unsecured note holders.

"The decision to appoint receivers follows the Supreme Court of
Queensland's order that Octaviar Limited, over which OPI had a put
option, be put into liquidation. The trustee's opinion is that a
receivership is now appropriate and in the best interests of OPI's
investors," Matthew Lancaster, Head of Corporate Trust at
Perpetual Trust, said in a statement.

"In May 2008, OPI received an upfront part payment of AU$20
million from Octaviar in respect of its put option liability to
OPI and this was distributed to secured debenture holders
following the approval of the moratorium.

"The receivers will investigate whether it will be possible to
obtain any further payment from Octaviar as well as from other
parties. PwC, through their role as OPI's monitoring accountant,
already have a wide knowledge of its affairs, which is a benefit,"
Mr. Lancaster said.

PwC Partner Colin McCloy said, "We're now working with the company
and the trustee to review the situation, but it's still to early
to offer detailed information. However, we will send all investors
a report as soon as possible. In the meantime we've set up a
dedicated help line and web page to allow investors to ask
questions and find out more information."

                        About OPI Pacific

OPI Pacific Finance Limited, formerly known as MFS Pacific
Finance, is New Zealand-based  finance company.  OPI Pacific is a
subsidiary of Octaviar Limited.


                          *     *     *

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific on
October 13, 2008, OPI Pacific Finance Limited's parent OPI New
Zealand Limited, formerly known as MFS New Zealand, appointed
Andrew John McKay and John Joseph Cregton of Corporate Finance
Limited as voluntary administrators.

In its 2008 full year results, OPI New Zealand reported a net loss
of NZ$232 million for the year ended March 31, 2008.

OPI New Zealand's loss is primarily attributable to the write down
in the carrying values of its subsidiaries, and the recognition of
impairments to the loans and investments of OPI Pacific Finance
Limited.

Coinciding with the release of the results, the company said its
directors have completed their review of the company's remaining
assets, liabilities, and its viable future prospects.  It is clear
that upon completion of the Moratorium for Pacific Finance there
will not be any surplus funds remaining for distribution to the
shareholders of OPI New Zealand, the company noted.


WILLIAM HILL: Sale of Business Attracts Potential Buyers

CHINA BANKING: Fitch Keeps 'BB' LT For. Cur. Issuer Default Rating
------------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed the ratings of Philippine-based China
Banking Corporation and Rizal Commercial Banking Corp.  The full
list of rating actions is included at the end of the release.

CBC's ratings reflect its good earnings and balance-sheet
strength, and Fitch believes the bank has a good loss-absorption
capacity to ride out the current downturn.  The agency expects
that some deterioration in the bank's asset quality may occur over
the next 12-18 months as a result of the economic downturn,
although its NPLs have declined in absolute terms during H109.  In
addition, foreclosed properties may give rise to modest impairment
charges should real estate prices decline from current levels in
the event of a prolonged economic slowdown.  However, CBC's
satisfactory earnings capacity and capitalization (end-H109 Tier 1
CAR: 12.5%) and high NPL reserve coverage (end-H109: 105%) are
mitigating factors in preserving the bank's credit profile.

RCBC's ratings are based on its legacy asset-quality issues and
the increased challenges from difficult operating conditions,
although such risks are somewhat mitigated by satisfactory capital
and earnings cushions to absorb rising credit costs.  Unlike
better-rated banks, RCBC still has deferred charges - disposal
losses from previous years that are being amortized over 10 years.
Asset quality deterioration, which had been modest in H109, may
continue in H209-2010 and some impairment could also arise from
the bank's foreclosed properties.  Nonetheless, the bank appears
to have sufficient earnings buffer and high NPL reserve cover
(around 130% at end-H109) to mitigate such risks.  Together with
its core Tier 1 CAR (excluding hybrid securities and preference
shares) of an estimated 11% at end-2008, the bank has a reasonable
loss absorption capacity, which is commensurate with its ratings.

The full list of rating actions is:

China Banking Corporation

  -- Long-term foreign currency Issuer Default Rating affirmed at
     'BB' with a Stable Outlook,

  -- Long-term local currency IDR affirmed at 'BB' with a Stable
     Outlook,

  -- National long-term rating affirmed at 'AA-(phl)' with a
     Stable Outlook

  -- Individual affirmed at 'C/D',

  -- Support affirmed at '4', and

  -- Support Rating Floor affirmed at 'B+'.

Rizal Commercial Banking Corp (RCBC)

  -- Long-term foreign currency IDR affirmed at 'BB-' with a
     Stable Outlook,

  -- Long-term local currency IDR affirmed at 'BB-' with a Stable
     Outlook,

  -- Individual affirmed at 'D',

  -- Support affirmed at '3'

  -- Support Rating Floor affirmed at 'BB-',

  -- Rating on senior unsecured notes affirmed at 'BB-',

  -- Rating on subordinated notes affirmed at 'B+', and

  -- Rating on hybrid Tier 1 instruments affirmed at 'B-',


LEGACY GROUP: PDIC Validates PHP10.7-Bln Deposits in Legacy Banks
-----------------------------------------------------------------
The Philippine Deposit Insurance Corporation has validated 81.5%
or 109,791 accounts out of the total 134,653 deposit accounts in
the 12 Legacy-affiliated banks, after the first validation phase
was completed end August 2009.  PDIC President Jose C. Nograles
explained that PDIC's verification process is at two levels:

     -- The deposits are verified to be valid deposits based on
        the available records at the closed bank upon takeover by
        PDIC. It is important that the deposit is recorded in the
        bank and that the cash inflow is determined to have
        existed.

     -- The depositor's claim is validated based on the standard
        operating procedures for claims processing.  Validation of
        claims requires submission of supporting documents to
        substantiate the deposit insurance claim.

"It is not enough that we validate the deposit accounts, we also
need to validate the claimants to ensure that we pay the right
owner of the account, " Mr. Nograles said in a statement.

If the claims pass the second validation phase, these will
translate to payments worth PHP10.7 billion or 76.4% of the total
estimated insured deposits of PHP14 billion.

Earlier, PDIC had targeted to complete the examination of all
accounts in the Legacy banks end of July 2009.  But operations
were considerably slowed down by incomplete and missing documents
in the banks as well as the big volume of accounts involved and
allegations of fraud.  These prompted PDIC to carry out
extraordinary measures to hasten the examination process amidst
these difficulties.  Steps included the deployment of more than
half of PDIC's personnel complement on field and the engagement of
one of the largest external auditors in the country, KPMG Manabat
Sanagustin, to assist and speed up the examination.  With these
measures, examination of accounts was completed end August 2009.

Of the total number of accounts, 10.4% or 14,019 accounts
amounting to PHP1.8 billion had been referred for resolution of
legal issues, some 6% or 8,124 accounts amounting to PHP1.15
billion have been initially validated to have incomplete bank
records hence, PDIC cannot proceed with its validation; and 2% or
2,719 accounts representing P374 million had been denied.

PDIC reported in the first quarter of 2009 that some PHP6 billion
of the deposit accounts in the Legacy banks were initially found
to be doubtful accounts because of incomplete records and
questionable transactions.  Some of these accounts had since been
validated as PDIC diligently searched for bank documents in the
course of the validation process.  A number of doubtful accounts
had either been referred for legal resolution or had remained as
accounts with incomplete documents.  To aid in these efforts, PDIC
had demanded that former bank officers turn over documents and
records.  It had also filed several cases against officers who
refused to comply.

Mr. Nograles said that the completion of the validation process
will significantly hasten the processing of claims which is the
second phase of validation process.  The second phase requires the
matching of filed claims against the validated accounts.  As of
end August 2009, PDIC had received a total of 114,721 claims for
PHP12.6 billion.  Of these filed claims, PDIC had already paid
24,125 claims for PHP1.43 billion.  Some 6,523 more claims
amounting to PHP834 million are being processed for payment as of
end August.

Meanwhile, 21,819 claims for PHP2.83 billion are found to be
document deficient.  PDIC has started sending notices to
depositors of the required documents for submission.  In cases
when the documents submitted are insufficient to validate a claim,
PDIC is authorized under the law to require additional documents
from the depositors to support the claim.  If the submission of
the required document is satisfactorily complied with, these
claims will likewise be paid.

PDIC reported that it had denied 4,164 claims for PHP204 million,
a big chunk of which were claims for accounts not even in the
banks' records.  A total of 19,070 claims amounting to PHP2.55
billion were placed on hold as these accounts await validation.
PDIC continues to process 39,020 claims representing PHP4.76
billion.

Mr. Nograles expressed confidence that all valid claims will be
paid soon.  He said that PDIC had been meticulous in the first and
second phases of the validation in accordance with the standard
procedures in claims processing to ensure proper disbursements
according to audit rules of the Commission on Audit (COA).

                         About Legacy Group

Headquartered in Quezon City, Philippines, The Legacy Group --
http://www.legacy.com.ph/-- 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% 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
Cebu); Rural Bank of San Jose (in Batangas); Philippine
Countryside Bank (in Cebu); Dynamic Bank (Rural Bank of Calatagan,
in Batangas); San Pablo City Development Bank; Nation Bank (in
Bacolod City) and the Bank of East Asia (in Cebu) due to
insolvency.


LEGACY GROUP: Banks' Assets Overvalued by PHP18.96-Bln, PDIC Says
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Philippine Deposit Insurance Corporation President Jose C.
Nograles said that verification conducted by PDIC deputy receivers
of the 12 Legacy-affiliated banks showed overstatement of the
assets in the books of the banks amounting to PHP18.96 billion.
Mr. Nograles further said that the banks' financials may still be
adjusted once the results of the forensic investigation being
undertaken by an external audit firm on these banks are filed.

Mr. Nograles said that as of PDIC takeover in December 2008, these
banks' consolidated statement of condition recorded total assets
at PHP19.82 billion.  However, based on asset verification and
valuation made by the designated deputy receivers of PDIC, the
consolidated total assets of the Legacy banks as of end
August 2009 was estimated at only PHP856 million, revealing an
PHP18.96 billion worth of potential overstatement in the Legacy
banks' books.  The overstatement implies that estimated realizable
assets (ERVA) of the 12 Legacy banks combined will be less than
10% of the recorded total assets as of takeover date.  Initial
estimates based on examination of deposit accounts and claims
filed place Legacy payouts at PHP10 billion with practically no
recoveries.  Because of this, PDIC said it will bear a heavy hit
on its Deposit Insurance Fund (DIF).  Uninsured depositors and
other creditors will also be hit as recoveries from liquidation
are expected to be nil.  Holders of denied claims will also bear a
hit.

PDIC found that the books of the banks indicated overstatements in
the following accounts: real and other properties acquired or ROPA
(PHP6.86 billion); due from banks transactions (PHP3.8 billion);
sale contract receivables (PHP2.98 billion); loans (PHP2.49
billion), other assets (PHP2.3 billion); and others such as due
from banks, equity investments, IBODI and FFEs (almost PHP500
million).  The overstatement in the financial records of the banks
would make it appear that these banks had adequate assets to
continue doing business.

The state deposit insurer earlier took its investigation of the
Legacy-affiliated banks to a higher level by engaging the services
of Punongbayan & Araullo, an audit firm with expertise in forensic
fraud investigation, affiliated with Grant Thornton, International
PA.  Forensic investigation is geared towards uncovering
transactions intentionally hidden in a maze of paper trail and
deleted computer files.  It aims to identify and document possible
fraud schemes, irregularities and anomalies that may have been
perpetrated against the banks and which may be used as basis for
the filing of criminal, civil or administrative cases.
Punongbayan & Araullo is now in the thick of uncovering fictitious
transactions in the Legacy banks in the form of loans, sales
contract receivables and other receivables.

As statutory receiver, PDIC is tasked to administer the assets of
closed banks and maximize recovery for the benefit of creditors.
The amount that may be recovered from the assets of a closed bank
will be distributed to satisfy the claims of the closed banks'
creditors including depositors with uninsured deposits.

Mr. Nograles said that PDIC is now investigating and will file
appropriate charges, when warranted, against accountable bank
officers and employees as well as external auditors for any
misrepresentations of the actual financial status of the banks.
Under Section 21(f)(3) of the PDIC Charter, any willful making of
a false statement or entry in any bank report or document required
by the PDIC is punishable by prision mayor or a fine of up to PHP2
million or both.

PDIC had filed three syndicated estafa cases against Legacy owner
Celso G. de los Angeles Jr., his wife and son, and several Legacy
officers for misappropriation and siphoning of funds of Rural Bank
of Carmen in Cebu, Nation Bank in Bacolod, and Rural Bank of Bais
in Mandaue.  Syndicated estafa is a non-bailable offense.  PDIC
has likewise charged accountable officers of Philippine
Countryside Rural Bank, Inc., Rural Bank of San Jose in Batangas
and RB Bais in Mandaue for refusal to turnover bank records still
in their possession.

RIZAL COMMERCIAL: Fitch Affirms IDR Ratings at 'BB-'
----------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed the ratings of Philippine-based China
Banking Corporation and Rizal Commercial Banking Corp.  The full
list of rating actions is included at the end of the release.

CBC's ratings reflect its good earnings and balance-sheet
strength, and Fitch believes the bank has a good loss-absorption
capacity to ride out the current downturn.  The agency expects
that some deterioration in the bank's asset quality may occur over
the next 12-18 months as a result of the economic downturn,
although its NPLs have declined in absolute terms during H109.  In
addition, foreclosed properties may give rise to modest impairment
charges should real estate prices decline from current levels in
the event of a prolonged economic slowdown.  However, CBC's
satisfactory earnings capacity and capitalization (end-H109 Tier 1
CAR: 12.5%) and high NPL reserve coverage (end-H109: 105%) are
mitigating factors in preserving the bank's credit profile.

RCBC's ratings are based on its legacy asset-quality issues and
the increased challenges from difficult operating conditions,
although such risks are somewhat mitigated by satisfactory capital
and earnings cushions to absorb rising credit costs.  Unlike
better-rated banks, RCBC still has deferred charges - disposal
losses from previous years that are being amortized over 10 years.
Asset quality deterioration, which had been modest in H109, may
continue in H209-2010 and some impairment could also arise from
the bank's foreclosed properties.  Nonetheless, the bank appears
to have sufficient earnings buffer and high NPL reserve cover
(around 130% at end-H109) to mitigate such risks.  Together with
its core Tier 1 CAR (excluding hybrid securities and preference
shares) of an estimated 11% at end-2008, the bank has a reasonable
loss absorption capacity, which is commensurate with its ratings.

The full list of rating actions is:

China Banking Corporation

  -- Long-term foreign currency Issuer Default Rating affirmed at
     'BB' with a Stable Outlook,

  -- Long-term local currency IDR affirmed at 'BB' with a Stable
     Outlook,

STATS CHIPPAC: S&P Puts 'BB+' Ratings on CreditWatch Negative
-------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it had placed the
ratings on Singapore-based STATS ChipPAC Ltd. on CreditWatch with
negative implications.  At the same, Standard & Poor's also placed
the 'BB+' issue ratings on the company's senior unsecured notes on
CreditWatch with negative implications.

"We placed the ratings on STATS ChipPAC on CreditWatch because of
a likely change in S&P's analytical view of the company.  This is
attributable to the possibility that the high-technology
semiconductor sector may no longer be of significant strategic
importance to the Singapore government and because of S&P's review
of government-related entities," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst Wee Khim Loy.

The government currently owns 83.8% of STATS ChipPAC, an
outsourced semiconductor assembly and test services provider,
through its holding company, Temasek Holdings Pte. Ltd.
(AAA/Stable/--).

The sector's continued strategic importance to the government came
into question on Sept 7, 2009, when Chartered Semiconductor
Manufacturing Ltd. announced that Temasek planned to sell its
shareholding in Chartered to Advanced Technology Investment Co.
LLC (not rated).

S&P previously factored into the rating on STATS ChipPAC a
moderately high likelihood of extraordinary government support
because S&P viewed the company as a GRE with strong links to the
Singapore government.  This was attributable to STATS ChipPAC's
important role in the government's strategy of ensuring that
Singapore is at the forefront of global high technology.

Under S&P's revised methodology for reviewing GREs, S&P now places
more emphasis on a company's stand-alone credit profile.

"We are currently reviewing the linkage between STATS ChipPAC and
Temasek from a parent-subsidiary perspective and will consider
factoring into the rating any parental support," said Ms. Loy.

Standard & Poor's aim to resolve the CreditWatch placement within
the next three months, after S&P has assessed STATS ChipPAC's
stand-alone credit profile and potential parent support.
Following S&P's review, S&P may affirm the rating or downgrade
STATS ChipPAC by up to two notches.

* Fitch Says Legacy M&A Funding Poses Risks For Corporates
----------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings says in its annual EMEA and Asia-Pacific corporate
liquidity study that rated entities which remain exposed to short-
dated M&A funding, often arranged prior to the summer of 2007,
have heightened liquidity risks often related to lumpy debt
maturity profiles in 2009 and 2010.  This liquidity profile is
typically a result of a combination of subsequent unsuccessful
equity-raising plans and delays or shortfalls in planned disposal
proceeds, which have both been compounded by a reduction in
operational profitability in the current economic conditions.

Entities where ratings continue to reflect past M&A structuring,
sometimes with an aggressive debt maturity schedule, include
HeidelbergCement AG ('B'/Negative), Continental AG ('B+'/Rating
Watch Negative), Taylor Wimpey plc ('B'/Stable) which has a 2012
bulk maturity and, to a lesser extent, Pernod Ricard S.A.
('BB+'/Stable).

Conversely, as noted in previous company-specific research,
companies that have successfully emerged from this position over
the past 12 months where refinance risk has receded have included
BAA (not corporate rated), Carlsberg ('BBB-'/Stable), Enel
('A-'/Stable), Evraz ('B+'/RWN), FirstGroup ('BBB'/Negative),
Imperial Tobacco ('BBB-'/Negative), Norilsk Nickel
('BBB-'/Negative), Reed Elsevier ('A-'/Negative), Rio Tinto
('BBB+'/Positive), Severstal ('B+'/RWN) and Tata Steel
('BB+'/Negative).  Fitch notes these companies span a range of
sectors and countries and often indicate opportune access of the
capital markets (often equity and/or long-dated bonds) in order to
reduce debt levels.

Also, as Fitch noted in its 12 July 2009 mid-year update for
European corporates, the agency's expectation is that the
forthcoming wave of M&A activity has the potential to be less
damaging to credit ratings, as transactions have benefited from
residual conservatism in corporate boards' financial policies,
strong operational and business drivers for consolidation in many
sectors and continuing conservatism from bank lenders in developed
markets.  Liquidity management of proposed transactions -
minimizing bridge finance risk and presenting multiple
contingencies for the refinancing of the purchase price - will
nonetheless remain a key consideration in the rating response to
M&A activity.

Fitch's liquidity scores are broadly defined as free cash flow
before dividends, plus cash-in-bank, plus existing RCF headroom,
less future committed capex divided by short-term debt maturities
for the relevant period.

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.
