LYNAS CORP: Chinese Investor Cancels AU$252-Mln Bid
---------------------------------------------------
China Non-Ferrous Metal Mining (Group) Co. has terminated its plan
to acquire of a majority stake in Lynas Corporation Limited.

The Chinese company agreed in May to pay AU$252 million in cash
for 51.6% stake in Lynas.  CNMC will buy 700 million new shares at
36 cents each.

"As a result of additional undertakings recently sought by The
Australian Foreign Investment Review Board, CNMC has terminated
the CNMC transaction," Lynas said in a statement to the Australian
Securities Exchange.

"The additional undertakings recently sought by the FIRB included
reducing the proposed percentage ownership to be held by CNMC to
below 50% and reducing the number of board directors to be held by
CNMC to less than half of the board," Lynas said.

"These were in addition to already agreed undertakings between
Lynas and CNMC aimed at ensuring independent director control of
all marketing of rare earths products."

Lynas said it is well advanced in finalizing interim funding to
ensure that the company continues to have adequate working
capital.

Lynas Corp. will be suspended from trading in Sydney starting
today, September 25, pending an update on discussion concerning
potential funding after FIRB blocked CNMC's bid.

The company expects the suspension to last for approximately five
days.

                         About Lynas Corp.

Lynas Corporation Limited (ASX:LYC) -- http://www.lynascorp.com/
-- is a mineral exploration company operating mainly in Australia.
The Company's activities are focused primarily on the exploration
and development of rare earths deposits and exploration for other
mineral resources.  Lynas Corporation Limited is also engaged in
the planning, design and construction of a concentration plant and
advanced materials processing plant.  The Company's subsidiaries
include Lynas Malaysia Sdn Bhd, Lynas Transales Pty Ltd, Mt Weld
Niobium Pty Ltd, Mt Weld Holdings Pty Ltd, Mt Weld Rare Earths Pty
Ltd, Lynas Chemet Australia Pty Ltd and Mt Weld Mining Pty Ltd.

                           *     *     *

The company incurred three consecutive annual net losses of
AU$21.48 million, AU$6.20 million and AU$4.50 million for the
years ended June 30, 2006, 2007 and 2008.


STORM FINANCIAL: Public Probe Begins; Founders to Give Evidence
---------------------------------------------------------------
The Australian Associated Press reported that a public examination
of failed advisory firm Storm Financial began in the Federal Court
in Brisbane Thursday, September 24, with about 40 witnesses likely
to give evidence.

According to the report, the examination will investigate the
running of the company and its collapse and is expected to run for
19 days.

The liquidators of Storm Financial Ltd, Raj Khatri and Ivor
Worrell of Worrells Solvency and Forensic Accountants, according
to the AAP, said the focus of the examination would be on possible
breaches of duty and corporate offences.

Storm founders Emmanuel and Julie Cassimatis are expected to give
evidence on Monday, September 28, the report says.

The AAP relates that at least seven companies - including Bank of
Queensland and Commonwealth Bank of Australia - are expected to
provide records relating to their business with Storm.

Unlike an ordinary court case, under the Bankruptcy Act, any
creditor may attend the examination and put questions to any
witness, according to the AAP.

The report says the examination will run from September 24 to
September 29, adjourning until October 12 and continuing until
October 30.

                       About Storm Financial

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

                           *     *     *

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

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

The TCR-AP 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.

FORD MOTOR: To Expand in China With Third Plant
-----------------------------------------------
Keith Naughton and Vipin V. Nair at Bloomberg News report that
Ford Motor Co. is boosting its bet on China with a new factory and
models as it tries to catch General Motors Co.  It plans to
produce high-end sedans and sport-utility vehicles at the plant,
which will be built in Chongqing, southern China.  The high-end
sedans are expected to compete against GM's Buick models, while
the sport-utility vehicle will capitalize on demand for that
category in China said Brian Johnson, a Chicago-based Barclays
Capital analyst.

Ford ranks 12th in China with 2.8% of sales, Bloomberg said,
citing auto researcher J.D. Power & Associates.  GM, which emerged
from a U.S. government-sponsored bankruptcy July 10, outsells Ford
by 3-to-1 in China, building twice as many vehicles.

                        About Ford Motor

Headquartered in Dearborn, Michigan, Ford Motor Co. (NYSE: F) --
http://www.ford.com/-- manufactures or distributes automobiles in
200 markets across six continents.  With about 260,000 employees
and about 100 plants worldwide, the company's core and affiliated
automotive brands include Ford, Jaguar, Land Rover, Lincoln,
Mercury, Volvo, Aston Martin, and Mazda.  The company provides
financial services through Ford Motor Credit Company.

The Company has operations in Japan in the Asia Pacific region. In
Europe, the Company maintains a presence in Sweden, and the United
Kingdom.  The Company also distributes its brands in various
Latin-American regions, including Argentina and Brazil.

                          *     *     *

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter on April 15, 2009,
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it raised its ratings on
Ford Motor Co. and related entities, including the corporate
credit rating, to 'CCC+' from 'SD-'.  The ratings on Ford Motor
Credit Co. are unchanged, at 'CCC+', and the ratings on FCE Bank
PLC, Ford Credit's European bank, are also unchanged, at 'B-',
maintaining the one-notch rating differential between FCE and its
parent Ford Credit.  S&P said that the outlook on all entities is
negative.

Moody's Investors Service in December 2008 lowered the Corporate
Family Rating and Probability of Default Rating of Ford Motor
Company to Caa3 from Caa1 and lowered the company's Speculative
Grade Liquidity rating to SGL-4 from SGL-3.  The outlook is
negative.  The downgrade reflects the increased risk that Ford
will have to undertake some form of balance sheet restructuring in
order to achieve the same UAW concessions that General Motors and
Chrysler are likely to achieve as a result of the recently-
approved government bailout loans.  Such a balance sheet
restructuring would likely entail a loss for bond holders and
would be viewed by Moody's as a distressed exchange and
consequently treated as a default for analytic purposes.


SHANGHAI PUDONG: Youngor May Buy up to CNY1.8BB Pudong Bank Shares
------------------------------------------------------------------
Bloomberg News reports that Youngor Group Co. said it plans to buy
as much as CNY1.8 billion of Shanghai Pudong Development Bank Co.
shares via the lenderís planned placement.

The Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific reported yesterday that
Shanghai Pudong said it had received approval from the China
Securities Regulatory Commission to sell not more than 1.14
billion new A-shares in a private placement.  The medium-size
Chinese bank, in which Citigroup Inc. owns a 3.8% stake, didn't
say in its statement how much it expects to raise.

Headquartered in Shanghai, China, Shanghai Pudong Development
Bank Co., Ltd. -- http://www.spdb.com.cn/-- is a commercial
bank involved in personal banking, corporate banking, and inter-
bank business.  The bank also offers Internet banking and
telephone banking.

                           *     *     *

The bank continues to carry Moody's Investors Service's "Ba1"
long-term bank deposit rating and "D" bank financial strength
rating.  It also carries Fitch Ratings' "D" individual rating.

AR POLYMERS: CRISIL Places INR2.2 Million Term Loan at 'BB'
-----------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its ratings of 'BB/Stable/P4+' to the bank
facilities of AR Polymers Pvt Ltd.

   Facilities                          Ratings
   ----------                          -------
   INR35.0 Million Cash Credit Limit   BB/Stable (Assigned)
   INR2.2 Million Term Loan            BB/Stable (Assigned)
   INR10.0 Million Letter of Credit    P4+ (Assigned)
   INR15.0 Million Bank Guarantee      P4+ (Assigned)

The ratings reflect ARPL's weak financial risk profile and
exposure to risks relating to intense competition and cyclicality
in the wood panel industry.  These weaknesses are, however,
partially offset by the benefits that the company derives from its
promoter's experience in the plywood and army products business,
and established relationships with large customers.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that ARPL will maintain a stable presence in the
plywood and army products businesses, on the back of the
promoters' experience.  The outlook may be revised to 'Positive'
if the company consolidates its presence in these businesses by
entering new segments, and introducing value-added products,
thereby, improving its realizations and profitability. Conversely,
the outlook may be revised to 'Negative' if the company's
financial risk profile deteriorates significantly owing to large,
debt-funded capital expenditure, and increased working capital
requirements.

                         About AR Polymers

Set up in 1995, by Mr. G K Gupta, ARPL manufactures plywood and
army products such as tents, tarpaulin, and body protectors at its
facilities at Fatehpur (Uttar Pradesh).  ARPL reported a profit
after tax (PAT) of INR1.5 million on net sales of INR253.6 million
for 2007-08 (refers to financial year, April 1 to March 31), as
against a PAT of INR5.4million on net sales of INR127.5 million
for 2006-07.


AVANTI FEEDS: CRISIL Assigns 'B+' Ratings to Various Bank Debts
---------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its ratings of 'B+/Negative/P4' to the bank
facilities of Avanti Feeds Ltd.

   Facilities                          Ratings
   ----------                          -------
   INR102.00 Million Long Term Loan    B+/Negative (Assigned)
   INR250.00 Million Cash Credit       B+/Negative (Assigned)
   INR250.00 Million Letter of Credit  P4 (Assigned)
              & Bank Guarantee

The ratings reflect AFL's weak financial risk profile, exposure to
risks inherent in the seafood business, and susceptibility to
fluctuations in foreign exchange rates.  The impact of these
weaknesses is mitigated by AFL's established presence in the
seafood industry, and integrated operations.

Outlook: Negative

CRISIL's expects AFL's business and financial risk profiles to
remain weak because of its declining revenues, inability to pass
on increases in input costs, and inadequate cash accruals to
service its term loan installments.  The ratings may be downgraded
if AFL's volumes or margins decline steeply, because of further
decline in demand for shrimp feed and lack of availability of
quality shrimp, or if the company undertakes a large debt-funded
capital expenditure programme.  Conversely, the outlook may be
revised to 'Stable' in case of a significant and sustainable
improvement in the company's business and financial risk profiles.

                        About Avanti Feeds

Incorporated in 1993, the Hyderabad-based AFL is engaged in shrimp
processing and manufacture of shrimp feed.  The company has a
shrimp-feed manufacturing capacity of 50,000 tonnes per annum.
The company also has 4 windmills in Karnataka, with a combined
installed capacity of 3.2 megawatts.  For 2008-09 (refers to
financial year, April 1 to March 31), AFL reported a provisional
loss after tax of INR86 million on net sales of INR667 million.
For 2007-08, it reported a profit after tax of INR8.9 million on
net sales of INR957 million.


BRIGHT POWER: CRISIL Reaffirms 'P4' Rating on INR80MM Cash Credit
-----------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has reclassified its short-term rating on the bank
facilities of Bright Power Projects (India) Pvt Ltd  as 'P4+',
from the earlier 'P4'; the long-term rating has been reaffirmed.

   Facilities                       Ratings
   ----------                       -------
   INR80 Million Cash Credit        BB/Stable (Reaffirmed)
   INR140 Million Bank Guarantee *  P4+ (Reclassified from 'P4')

   * Fully interchangeable with letter of credit.

The ratings continue to reflect Bright Power's weak financial risk
profile marked by a small net worth, high gearing and moderate
debt protection measures, susceptibility to risks related to the
tender-based contract business, and its small scale of operations.
The impact of these rating weaknesses is mitigated by Bright
Power's established track record in the electrical contracts
business and its longstanding relationships with its customers.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that Bright Power will maintain its stable
business risk profile over the medium term, backed by its project
execution abilities and its long track record in the electrical
contracts business.  The outlook may be revised to 'Negative' if
the company's financial risk profile deteriorates because of
liquidity constraints or increase in gearing.  Conversely, the
outlook may be revised to 'Positive' in case Bright Power's
financial risk profile improves significantly because of sustained
improvement in its profitability or fresh infusions of equity.

                        About Bright Power

Incorporated in 1993 by Mr. B R Poonja and Mr. U V Kamath, Bright
Power is in the business of executing projects involving erection,
installation, commissioning and maintenance of overhead lines,
transformers and other electrical equipment for the Indian
Railways, Bhabha Atomic Research Centre (BARC) and other clients.

For 2008-09 (refers to financial year, April 1 to March 31),
Bright Power posted a provisional profit after tax (PAT) of
INR20.5 million on revenues of INR512 million; the company
reported a PAT of INR8.5 million on revenues of INR366 million for
2007-08.


CHOCOLATE HOTELS: CRISIL Rates INR122.5 Million Term Loan at 'BB-'
------------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its ratings of 'BB-/Stable' to the bank
facilities of Chocolate Hotels Pvt Ltd.

   Facilities                       Ratings
   ----------                       -------
   INR122.5 Million Term Loan       BB-/Stable (Assigned)
   INR27.5 Million Proposed Long    BB-/Stable (Assigned)
         Term Bank Loan Facility

The ratings reflect CHPL's limited track record of operations,
concentration in revenue profile (revenues generated only from
Chrome Hotel at Kolkata), and susceptibility of margins to
economic cyclicality.  The impact of these rating weaknesses is
mitigated by CHPL's location advantage and its promoters'
experience in hospitality business.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that CHPL's occupancy rates will improve over the
medium term as the operations of the hotel stabilize and economic
conditions improve.  The outlook may be revised to 'Positive' if
the company's financial risk profile improves significantly as a
result of increase in its occupancy rate and average room revenue
(ARR), resulting in increase in cash accruals.  Conversely,
sustained low occupancy rates and ARR, because of competitive
pressures, resulting in CHPL's deterioration in debt repayment
capability may lead to the revision in the outlook to 'Negative'.

                      About Chocolate Hotels

Set up in 1994, as a non-banking financial company (NBFC) named
Alpha Vincom Pvt Ltd, CHPL was acquired by Tibrewala and Tantia
family in 2003 in a view to set up a hotel.  The company got its
present name in September 2007.  The company has constructed a
full-service, four-star hotel, named Chrome, at Kolkata.  The
property features 63 rooms, one restaurant, one coffee shop, one
pub, a business centre, and a swimming pool. The hotel is aimed at
corporate customers and tourists. The commercial operations of the
hotel commenced in January 2009.


DELTA FINOCHEM: CRISIL Reaffirms INR18MM Term Loan at 'BB'
----------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has reclassified its short-term rating on the bank
facilities of Delta Finochem Pvt Ltd as 'P4+', from the earlier
'P4'; the long-term rating has been reaffirmed.

   Facilities                       Ratings
   ----------                       -------
   INR18.00 Million Term Loan       BB/Stable (Reaffirmed)
   INR27.50 Million Cash Credit     BB/Stable (Reaffirmed)

   INR5.50 Million Ad-hoc Cash      P4+ (Reclassified from 'P4')
                   Credit Limit

   INR35.00 Million Letters of      P4+ (Reclassified from 'P4')
                    Credit

   INR1.00 Million Bank Guarantee   P4+ (Reclassified from 'P4')

The ratings continue to reflect Delta Finochem's small scale of
operations, large working capital requirements, and exposure to
intense competition and to cyclicality in raw material prices.
The impact of these weaknesses is mitigated by Delta Finochem's
established presence in the specialty organic chemicals industry,
especially in quaternary ammonium compounds (QACs) and quaternary
phosphonium compounds (QPCs), its comfortable capital structure,
and diversified end-user base.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL expects Delta Finochem to maintain its comfortable capital
structure and revenue growth over the medium term.  The outlook
may be revised to 'Positive' in case of a substantial and
sustainable increase in the company's margins, and improvement in
its overall business risk profile.  Conversely, the outlook may be
revised to 'Negative' if Delta Finochem's gearing is higher than
expected, or if its business or financial risk profile
deteriorates.

                        About Delta Finochem

Delta Finochem, promoted by Mr. D S Deshmukh in 1990, is a
manufacturer of organic chemicals in three segments - key
specialty chemicals, QACs, and QPCs.  The company supplies these
chemicals to the pharmaceuticals, paints and dyes, detergents,
agrochemicals, and industrial chemicals industries.  The company
recently started manufacturing active pharmaceutical ingredients
(APIs). Delta Finochem is currently expanding its capacity for
manufacturing APIs. The current capacity of the company's facility
at Igatpuri (near Nasik) is 900 tonnes per annum. The company is
expanding the capacity by 60 per cent at a total cost of
INR20 million, of which 70 per cent (about INR14 million) is
expected to be funded through debt, and the remaining through
internal accruals. For 2008-09 (refers to financial year, April 1
to March 31), Delta Finochem's profit after tax (PAT) is estimated
at INR22 million on net sales of INR400 million; it reported a PAT
of INR12.6 million on net sales of INR270 million for 2007-08.


KAYPEE METALS: CRISIL Places 'B' Rating on INR23.20 Mln LT Loan
---------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its ratings of 'B/Stable/P4' to the bank
facilities of KayPee Metals and Alloys Pvt Ltd.

   Facilities                                Ratings
   ----------                                -------
   INR23.20 Million Long Term Loan           B/Stable (Assigned)
   INR50.00 Million Cash Credit Limit        B/Stable (Assigned)
   INR75.00 Million Letter of Credit Limit   P4 (Assigned)
   INR10.00 Million Bank Guarantee Limit     P4 (Assigned)

The ratings reflect KayPee's below-average financial risk profile,
and susceptibility to volatility in raw material prices and
intense competition in the Thermo Mechanically Treated (TMT) bars
market in south Kerala market.  The impact of these rating
weaknesses is mitigated by the industry experience of KayPee's
promoters and its partially-integrated operations.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that KayPee will maintain its stable business risk
profile on the back of its established track record in the
southern Kerala market over the medium term.  The outlook may be
revised to 'Positive' if the company's financial risk profile
improves with the improvement in its gearing and operating
margins.  Conversely, the outlook may be revised to 'Negative' in
case KayPee's financial risk profile deteriorates because of
reduced cash flows as a result of decline in capacity utilisation
or realisations, or large, debt-funded capital expenditure.

                        About KayPee Metals

Established by Mr Ramachandran Nair, KayPee started manufacturing
cold twisted bars in 1995. In 2005, it diversified into TMT bars;
it presently has a capacity of 100 metric tonnes per day (tpd).
The company's TMT bars are sold in southern Kerala market under
the brand 'Capcon'. The company has in-house Mild Steel ingots
manufacturing capacity of around 60 tpd, which currently meets 75
per cent of the MS ingots requirement for TMT manufacturing.

KayPee posted a profit after tax (PAT) of INR2.0 million on net
sales of INR422.1 million for 2008-09 (refers to financial year,
April 1 to March 31), against a PAT of INR0.6 million on net sales
of INR315.2 million for 2007-08.


SURYASUMAN SPINNING: CRISIL Rates Various Bank Debts at 'D'
-----------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its ratings of 'D/P5' to the bank facilities
of Suryasuman Spinning Mill Pvt Ltd, which is part of the Surya
group. The ratings reflect delays by SSMPL in servicing its rated
debt; the delays have been caused by the company's weak liquidity.

   Facilities                               Ratings
   ----------                               -------
   INR86.10 Million Long Term Loan          D (Assigned)
   INR40.00 Million Cash Credit Limit       D (Assigned)
   INR2.50 Million Letter of Credit Limit   P5 (Assigned)

For arriving at its ratings, CRISIL has combined the business and
financial risk profiles of SSMPL and Surya Creation.  This is
because both the entities, together referred to as the Surya
group, are under a common management team, are in the same line of
business, and have close mutual operational and financial
linkages.

                          About the Group

Founded in 1980 by Mr. A R Subramaniam, the Tirupur-based Surya
group produces yarn, grey cloth and ready-made garments. The Surya
group is estimated to have posted a consolidated profit after tax
(PAT) of INR2 million on net sales of INR118 million for 2008-09
(refers to financial year, April 1 to March 31), against a PAT of
INR1 million on net sales of INR113 million in 2007-08.


TANIA INDUSTRIES: CRISIL Rates INR150 Million Cash Credit at 'BB'
-----------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its ratings of 'BB/Stable/P4+' to the bank
facilities of Tania Industries Pvt Ltd.

   Facilities                       Ratings
   ----------                       -------
   INR150.0 Million Cash Credit     BB/Stable (Assigned)
   INR6.5 Million Bank Guarantee    P4+ (Assigned)

The ratings reflect the intense competition in the soybean solvent
oil and soya de-oiled cakes (DOC) market, Tania's limited presence
in the value chain, its low net worth, and its exposure to
unfavourable government regulations and to fluctuations in raw
material prices.  These weaknesses are partially offset by the
strong growth in the company's operating income, its easy access
to raw materials, comfortable debt protection measures, and low
working capital requirements.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that Tania's business risk profile will continue
to be constrained by its lack of presence in the value-added
products segment. Its net worth is also expected to remain low.
The outlook may be revised to 'Positive' in case of a substantial
improvement in the company's operating margins and cash accruals,
coupled with adequate capacity utilisation and off-take.
Conversely, the outlook may be revised to 'Negative' in case of
higher-than-expected debt-funded capital expenditure (capex), or
deterioration in operating margins.

                      About Tania Industries

Incorporated in 1980 by Mrs. Kamladevi Mansinghka as an investment
company, Tania switched over to trading in soya in 1998.  Since
2002, the company has been manufacturing soybean solvent oil and
soya DOC.  Tania's production facility at Saoner (Nagpur), has a
seed-crushing capacity of 500 tonnes per day (tpd).  The company
sells crude soy oil to refineries, and soya DOC in Orissa, West
Bengal, Karnataka, Tamil Nadu, and Andhra Pradesh.  Currently, the
company is managed by Mr. K C Dawda, who has been with the company
since its inception.

Tania reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR22 million on net
sales of INR1619 million for 2007-08 (refers to financial year,
April 1 to March 31), as against a net loss of INR4.4 million on
net sales of INR400 million for 2006-07.


TELEKONNECTORS LTD: Low Net Worth Prompts CRISIL 'BB-' Ratings
--------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its ratings of 'BB-/Stable/P4+' to the bank
facilities of Telekonnectors Ltd.

   Facilities                       Ratings
   ----------                       -------
   INR25.0 Million Cash Credit      BB-/Stable (Assigned)
   INR5.0 Million Letter of Credit  P4+ (Assigned)
   INR3.0 Million Bank Guarantee    P4+ (Assigned)

The ratings reflect TKL's low net worth, and exposure to risks
relating to small scale of operations and intense competition in
the telecommunication equipment industry. These weaknesses are,
however, partially offset by the company's strong track record in
the communication headset segment, and increasing operating
efficiency.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that TKL's sustain its financial risk profile over
the medium term owing to low net worth and also its small scale of
operations. The outlook may be revised to 'Positive' if the
company maintains stable revenues and operating margins, and if
substantial equity infusions enhance its net worth. Conversely,
the outlook may be revised to 'Negative' if the company's revenues
continue to decline.

                       About Telekonnectors

Set up in 1988, TKL manufactures light-weight communication
headsets, modular jacks, telecommunication testers, adaptors, and
other instruments used in call centres, and in the
telecommunications and airline industries.  TKL imports basic
headsets from China, and designs and modifies them to suit
customer requirements.  It has three facilities in Chennai. The
company has undertaken a capital expenditure of around INR12
million in 2008-09 (refers to financial year, April 1 to March
31), funded from internal accruals, for developing advanced models
of headsets and adapters.  The company also exports its products
to Sri Lanka, Philippines, and the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
TKL reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR2.1 million on net
sales of INR104.0 million for 2008-09, as against a PAT of INR11.8
million on net sales of INR130.9 million for 2007-08.


TRIDENT PROPERTIES: CRISIL Puts 'B' Rating on INR210MM Cash Credit
------------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its 'B/Negative' rating to the cash credit
facility of Trident Properties Pvt Ltd.

   Facilities                       Ratings
   ----------                       -------
   INR210.00 Million Cash Credit    B/Negative (Assigned)

The rating reflects TPPL's exposure to risks inherent in real
estate projects, and revenue concentration. The impact of these
weaknesses is mitigated by the promoters' experience and proven
project-execution capabilities in the real estate business.

Outlook: Negative

The 'Negative' outlook reflects the uncertainty in TPPL's
completion and saleability of the project, and the resultant
impact on cash flows in the wake of the ongoing slowdown in real
estate demand. The rating may be downgraded in case of
deterioration in TPPL's financial risk profile, because of low
revenues from, or time and cost overruns on, its ongoing project.
Conversely, the outlook may be revised to 'Stable' if TPPL
completes its project on schedule, and finalizes sales contracts
for all the saleable units without dilution in realizations.

                     About Trident Properties

Promoted in August 2007 by Mr.Veerprakash and Mr.Bijay Kumar
Mandhani, TPPL is developing Trident Grande, a residential project
of 220 flats, at Medchal, Hyderabad. The total cost is estimated
at INR800 million, and the project is expected to be completed by
August 2011. The promoters have been in real estate development
for the past 10 years, through group company Oorjita Projects Pvt
Ltd.


VIBGYOR TEXOTECH: CRISIL Assigns 'D' Rating on INR61.5MM Term Loan
------------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its rating of 'D/P5' to Vibgyor Texotech Ltd's
bank facilities because of delays in debt servicing.

   Facilities                       Ratings
   ----------                       -------
   INR61.5 Million Term Loan        D (Assigned)
   INR430 Million Packing Credit    P5 (Assigned)
   INR165 Million Letter of Credit  P5 (Assigned)

VINAY WIRES: CRISIL Assigns 'BB-' on INR30 Million Term Loan
------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its ratings of 'BB-/Stable/P4+' to the bank
facilities of Vinay Wires & Poly Products Pvt Ltd.

   Facilities                              Ratings
   ----------                              -------
   INR72.5 Million Cash Credit Limit       BB-/Stable (Assigned)
   INR2.5 Million Stand By Line of Credit  BB-/Stable (Assigned)
   INR30.0 Million Term Loan               BB-/Stable (Assigned)
   INR40.0 Million Letter of Credit        P4+ (Assigned)

The ratings reflect VWPP's exposure to risks relating to intense
competition in the electronic resistance welded (ERW) pipe
segment, which the company proposes to enter and volatility in
operating margins due to competitive pressure in the flexible
packaging industry.  These weaknesses are, however, partially
offset by VWPP's comfortable financial flexibility supported by
low debt repayment obligations.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that VWPP will maintain a stable credit risk
profile over the medium term on the back of established presence
in the flexible packaging industry.  The outlook may be revised to
'Positive' if VWPP's collection cycles, profitability, and cash
accruals improve, and it commissions its ERW pipes project without
time or cost overruns.  Conversely, the outlook may be revised to
'Negative' if VWPP's profitability declines, or if the company
incurs large, debt-funded capital expenditure, leading to
deterioration in its debt protection measures.

                         About Vinay Wires

Set up in 1999 by Mr. Brijesh Kanodia, VWPP manufactures flexible
packaging, including cast polypropylene films (CPP), low-density
polypropylene films (LDPE), multi-layer laminates, and liquid

application largely in the food and beverages industry. VWPP has
its manufacturing facility in Kanpur (Uttar Pradesh)  with an
installed capacity of 4800 tonnes per annum (tpa).  Since 2006-07

undertakes trading in polypropylene granules and procures around
50 per cent of its granule requirements from the international
market. VWPP is presently completing work on a new ERW pipes
facility that will cater to ERW pipes with commercial production
expected to start by October 2009. VWPP reported a profit after
tax (PAT) of INR 9 million on net sales of Rs 490 million for
2008-09 as against a PAT of INR9 million on net sales of
INR369 million for 2007-08.

AKAI HOLDINGS: Ernst & Young Settles Negligence Claims
------------------------------------------------------
Andrea Tan and Mark Lee at Bloomberg News report that Ernst &
Young LLP settled a lawsuit over its role in  Akai Holdings Ltd
and suspended a partner after the accounting firm was accused of
falsifying documents.

The report, citing liquidator Borrelli Walsh in a statement, says
the firm agreed to pay a "substantial" amount to settle claims of
negligence in its auditing of Akai between 1997 and 1999.

According to Bloomberg, Ernst & Young, which had denied
Mr. Walsh's allegation at the trial's opening on Sept. 16, said it
had started an internal investigation and was "dismayed."

"This investigation has made clear that certain documents
produced for the audits in 1998 and 1999 could no longer be
relied on due to the action of the audit manager in early
2000," Bloomberg cited Ernst & Young in an e-mailed statement.

Bloomberg notes the firm said it has informed the relevant
regulatory body and that a former employee may also have been
involved.  It didn't identify the partner who was suspended or
specify the settlement amount.

Akai Holdings declared bankruptcy in 2000 owing creditors about
$1.11 billion.  According to Bloomberg, the consumer electronics
maker at its peak employed 100,000 and had annual sales of HK$40
billion ($5.2 billion) of brands including Singer Sewing Machine
Co. of the U.S.  Its Shanghai-born, Canadian-educated owner James
Ting, jailed for six years for false accounting in 2005, was freed
the following year because of errors in the prosecution's case,
Bloomberg states.

Akai Holdings' principal activities were investment holding,
manufacturing, distribution and retailing of consumer durables,
consumer electronics, sewing machines and property development.


JAPAN AIRLINES: Seeks Emergency Funding from Japan Government
-------------------------------------------------------------
The Financial Times reports that Japan Airlines has asked the
Japanese government for emergency capital as part of a proposed
US$2.5 billion to US$3 billion fundraising designed to support the
struggling carrierís operations and pay for a drastic
restructuring.

The FT says Haruka Nishimatsu, JALís chief executive, confirmed
that he had asked for the capital injection in a meeting on
Thursday with Seiji Maehara, Japanís new transportation minister.

According to the FT, Mr. Nishihara did not say how much he
expected the government to contribute.  The FT notes JALís bankers
said the airline is seeking between US$2.5 billion and US$3
billion in new equity and loans, a portion of which it hopes to
raise from market investors.

The FT states that the bailout, if agreed, would be the fourth
rescue for JAL this decade.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific on
September 23, 2009, MarketWatch said lenders to Japan Airlines
Corp. are likely to ask the government to separate unprofitable
portions of the company.

JAL's creditors, including the Development Bank of Japan, are
pressing for a move to separate the carrier's profitable
operations and routes from those that are losing money, and to cut
personnel to streamline the company and facilitate an infusion of
public funds.

JAL's lenders also want the government to establish "emergency
legislation" that would allow for a restructuring of its roughly
JPY800 billion (US$8.7 billion) in consolidated, interest-bearing
debt.

KUMHO ASIANA: Bids for Stake in Daewoo Eng'g. Due on September 29
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Kumho Asiana Group set a Sept. 29 deadline for bids for a majority
stake in Daewoo Engineering & Construction Co., South Korea's
third-largest builder, Bloomberg News reports citing five people
with knowledge of the matter.

The people, according to Bloomberg, said advisers to Kumho Asiana
sent preliminary sale documents to at least 20 potential bidders
including Posco, Carlyle Group and Affinity Equity Partners Ltd.
The stake could fetch about $3 billion, Bloomberg notes, citing
two of the people.

The Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific, citing The Korea
Herald, reported on August 6, 2009, that Kumho Asiana has been
suffering from a liquidity crisis, which observers describe as a
typical case of acquisition indigestion.  In a bid to ease a cash
shortage, the conglomerate in July decided to re-sell the
controlling stakes and management rights of Daewoo Engineering &
Construction, three years after acquiring it for KRW6.4 trillion,
according to the Korea Herald.

Bloomberg relates Kumho Asiana has sold properties and stakes in
affiliates to help it repay debt stemming from its 2006 purchase
of Daewoo Engineering.  Bloomberg says creditors including Shinhan
Bank may force the company to repay KRW3.9 trillion (US$3.2
billion) by June if they exercise an option to sell Daewoo
Engineering shares they hold back to Kumho Asiana.

Established in 1946, Kumho Asiana Group is a large South Korean
conglomerate, with subsidiaries in the automotive, industry,
leisure, logistic, chemical and airline fields.  The group is
headquartered at the Kumho Asiana Main Tower in Sinmunno 1-ga,
Jongno-gu, Seoul, South Korea.


GENERAL MOTORS: GM Daewoo Files Court Action Against TagAZ
----------------------------------------------------------
GM Daewoo, the South Korean unit of General Motors, said Tuesday
it has launched a court action to prevent a Russian automaker's
local unit from allegedly copying one of its cars, the AFP
reports.

A GM Daewoo spokesman told AFP, "On Monday we filed a petition
with the Seoul central district court to prevent TagAZ Korea from
breaching our intellectual property rights and trade secrets."

According to the report, the spokesman said the petition seeks an
injunction to stop TagAZ from developing, manufacturing, selling
and exporting copied products and from using and disclosing GM
Daewoo's trade secrets.

The Korea Times relates that the court action comes nearly two
weeks after local prosecutors arrested two former GM Daewoo
employees on charges of handing over core information on the
company's popular "Lacetti" sedan before getting jobs at the local
branch of Russian auto firm TagAZ.

Another former GM Daewoo employee and executive of TagAZ Korea
committed suicide as the investigation widened, the Times says.

According to the Times, prosecutors suspect the former employees
of GM Daewoo copied over 6,000 files from their personal computers
containing crucial technology details on engine and parts designs
to build the Lacetti.  It is believed the leaks helped TagAZ
introduce its latest "C-100" model sedan in Russia, the Times
states.

The Times notes GM Daewoo officials said it costs around KRW300
billion (US$245 billion) to develop a model such as the Lacetti.

Separately, GM Daewoo on September 22 introduced the 2010 model
year Lacetti Premiere compact sedan, which features a new 1.8-
liter gasoline engine.  The new model, which goes by the name of
Lacetti Premiere ID (Identity), will go on sale from October.

EON BANK: Fitch Affirms Support Rating Floor at 'BB'
----------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed Malaysia-based EON Bank's Long-term
Issuer Default Rating at 'BBB-'with a Stable Outlook.  The full
list of rating actions is included at the end of the press
release.

EON Bank's ratings reflect its modest earnings and less
diversified business profile, though these are mitigated by its
satisfactory balance sheet strength.  In particular, its capital
position should help the bank preserve its credit profile through
this difficult period.

In Fitch's view, the impact of new delinquencies in H209-2010
should remain an earnings risk for EON Bank (as was the case in
H109) rather than a capital impairment risk.  This is because
unemployment rate - a key determinant for delinquencies - is
expected to rise slightly to 4.2% by end-2009 from 3.4% at end-
2008, keeping a check on consumer delinquencies.  Like many
Malaysian banks, EON Bank lends mainly to the consumer sector,
although its loan portfolio is concentrated in vehicle financing
and residential mortgages.  The two sectors accounted for 31% and
20% of EON Bank's loans as at end-H109, respectively.

Erstwhile concerns on EON Bank's lowly-reserved NPLs have been
substantially addressed in 2008.  It incurred substantial specific
provisions that year, which led to a higher NPL reserve coverage
of 81% at end-H109 (end-2007: 58%), but a weaker ROA of 0.3% in
2008 (2007: 0.6%).  On balance, EON Bank's solvency position has
improved considerably in light of its reduced net NPL/equity ratio
of 7% as at end-H109 (end-2007: 22%).  Its capital position is
also fairly good, with "core" Tier 1 capital adequacy ratio (CAR)
of 9.7% as of end-H109, higher than the peer average of around 8%,
and Tier 1 CAR of a pro-forma 11.2% (after including its
MYR500 million innovative Tier 1 capital securities issued on 10
September 2009).  Thanks to these factors and EON Bank's adequate
earnings buffer, Fitch believes that the bank should weather the
potential challenges from the difficult economic environment
satisfactorily.  Hence, the Outlook on its ratings continues to be
Stable.

Established in 1963, EON Bank has 139 branches and 211 ATMs in
Malaysia.  Through EON Capital (a bank holding company), the
bank's key shareholders are Primus Pacific Partner (20.2%),
government-owned institutions (22.2% via Khazanah Nasional Berhad
and Employees Provident Fund) and RH Development Sdn Bhd (16.3%)
and Kualapura Sdn Bhd (11.1%) as at 15 September 2009.

The list of rating actions on EON Bank is:

  -- Long-term foreign currency IDR affirmed at 'BBB-'; Outlook
     Stable;

  -- Short-term foreign currency IDR affirmed at 'F3';

  -- Individual rating affirmed at 'C/D';

  -- Support rating affirmed at '3';

  -- Support Rating Floor affirmed at 'BB';

  -- Deposit rating affirmed at 'BBB'; and

  -- Subordinated notes rating of 'BB+' withdrawn (the
     subordinated notes have been redeemed on 21 January 2009).

CHANG HWA: Moody's Withdraws Ratings for Business Reasons
---------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Taiwan Corporation has withdrawn its national scale
ratings on Chang Hwa Commercial Bank for business reasons.

This action does not reflect a change in the creditworthiness of
the issuers.  Chang Hwa Bank's global scale ratings are
unaffected.

The rating withdrawal follows Moody's decision to reorganize
certain aspects of its business in Asia, including the closing of
its offices in Taiwan and Indonesia.

These ratings have been withdrawn:

* Aa2.tw national scale long-term deposit rating and TW-1 national
  scale short-term deposit rating.  The outlook of these ratings
  was stable.

These ratings are unaffected:

* D bank financial strength rating, A3 global local currency and
  foreign currency long-term deposit rating, and P-1 global local
  currency and foreign currency short-term deposit rating.  The
  outlook of these ratings is stable.

Moody's last rating action with respect to Chang Hwa Bank was
taken on June 4, 2008, when the outlook on its BFSR was changed to
stable from positive, and A3/P-1 local currency long-term/short-
term deposit ratings were assigned.  The bank's D BFSR and A3/P-1
foreign currency long-term/short-term deposit rating were
unchanged.  The outlook for all ratings was stable.

Chang Hwa Bank, headquartered in Taipei, Taiwan, had assets of
NT$1,431 billion as of end-June 2009 on a consolidated basis.


TAIWAN HIGH: Names Ou Chin-der as New Chairman
----------------------------------------------
Taiwan High Speed Rail Corp. has accepted the resignation of
Chairwoman Nita Ing, according to Taiwan News.  Ms. Ing will be
replaced by Ou Chin-der, the representative of the government-
controlled China Aviation Development Foundation, a major
shareholder of THSRC.

Taiwan News says THSRC board members also decided that an
extraordinary shareholders' meeting will be held Nov. 10 to elect
new board directors and supervisors.

The privately run THSRC, Taiwan News discloses, has been running
the country's 345-km high-speed rail system under a build-operate-
transfer (BOT) contract.  Taiwan News notes the company is
required to transfer ownership to the government after operating
the rail line for 35 years.

According to Taiwan News, the high-speed railway went into
operation less than three years ago, but the THSRC had already
incurred an accumulated loss of NT$70.2 billion as of the end of
June this year, or about two-thirds of its total paid-in capital
of NT$105.3 billion (US$3.23 billion).

Taiwan News states that the Ministry of Transportation and
Communications in February agreed to assist the company in
resolving its financial difficulties by seeking new bank loans but
creditor banks are reluctant to approve new loans unless the
THSRC's five original shareholders injected more capital.

The company is likely to be forced to go bankrupt within two years
if the annual loss of around NT$25 billion lingers and if no
additional fund is injected into the firm, according to The China
Post.

Taiwan High Speed Rail Corporation is principally engaged in the
construction, development and operation of the high-speed railway
system in Taiwan.  The Company is also involved in other high-
speed railway transportation-related businesses and the
development and usage of train station sites.  The Company's high-
speed railway transportation-related businesses include shopping
malls, special stores located in travel agencies, car leasing and
parking lots, among others.  The Company developed train station
sites for hotel, restaurant, entertainment, department store,
financial service, tourism service, communication service and
other uses.  During the year ended December 31,2008, the Company
carried approximately 30.581 million of passengers by train.

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.
