FINCORP INVESTMENTS: Former Executives Face Five Year Jail Term
---------------------------------------------------------------
The former Chairman and CEO of Fincorp Investments Limited,
Mr. Eric Krecichwost and the former finance director Mr. Jacob Lee
Quigley, appeared Tuesday in Downing Centre Local Court in Sydney
on charges brought by the Australian Securities and Investments
Commission (ASIC).

Mr. Krecichwost has been charged with three counts of dishonestly
using his position as a director of a company with the intention
of directly or indirectly gaining an advantage for himself and
others.  Mr. Quigley faces one charge of the same count.

The charges against Mr. Krecichwost relate to three cheques for
AU$900,000, AU$825,000 and AU$1,980,000 ASIC alleges he signed in
September and October 2003.  The charge against Mr. Quigley
involves the AU$1,980,000 cheque that Mr. Quigley is also alleged
to have signed in October 2003.

The maximum penalty for each offence is five years imprisonment or
AU$220,000 or both.

Mr. Krecichwost and Mr. Quigley pleaded not guilty to all charges
and were bailed to appear again on December 15, 2009.

The matter is being prosecuted by the Commonwealth Director of
Public Prosecutions.

GREAT SOUTHERN: Receivers Get 'Strong Interest' in Timber Assets
----------------------------------------------------------------
ABC News reports that McGrathNicol, the receiver of Great
Southern, said there has been strong interest in the company's
pulpwood timber assets, including those in South Australia's
south-east.

One of the companies expressing interest in certain forestry
managed investment schemes is timber group Gunns Ltd, the report
says.

ABC News notes the receiver said it is now sorting through the
offers, with binding offers expected to be finalised within six
weeks.

Meanwhile, Great Southern said in ASX filing that five directors
have resigned from its board.  Directors David Charles Griffiths,
John Carlton Young, Alice McCleary, Peter Mansell and Mervyn
Peacock have resigned effective September 30, 2009.

                       About Great Southern

Based in West Perth, Australia, Great Southern Limited (ASX:GTP)
-- http://www.great-southern.com.au/-- is engaged in the
development, marketing, establishment and management of
agribusiness-based projects.  The Company provides finance,

who wish to invest in the Company's projects.  The Company also
acquires and manages farmland and other agribusiness related
properties which are held for long term investment.  It operates
an agricultural investment services business offering two key
products: agricultural managed investment schemes, which is
provision of MIS products in the forestry and agribusiness sector,
and agricultural funds management, which are agricultural
investment funds providing investors exposure to a portfolio of
agricultural assets.  Great Southern manages about 43,000

and leases approximately 240,000 hectares of land.  It also owns
more than 150,000 cattle across approximately 1.5 million hectares

WESTPOINT GROUP: Former Chief Appears in Sydney Court
-----------------------------------------------------
Westpoint Group's former chief financial controller, Graeme
Rundle, appeared Tuesday in the Downing Centre Local Court,
Sydney, in relation to two criminal charges brought by the
Australian Securities & Investments Commission.

Mr. Rundle, 44, was charged with two offences of making a false
statement with intent to obtain a financial advantage in
contravention of section 178BB of the NSW Crimes Act.

Each offence carries a maximum penalty of five years’
imprisonment.

ASIC alleges that in May 2004, Mr. Rundle made false statements to
a financial institution in support of an application for a
AU$71 million credit facility to fund a Westpoint building project
known as the Scots Church Development on York Street in Sydney.

ASIC said that throughout the period relevant to the offences,
Mr. Rundle was the Chief Financial Controller of the Westpoint
Group of companies.  He was also director and secretary of Scots
Church Development Ltd and secretary of York Street Mezzanine Pty
Ltd. Scots Church Development and York Street Mezzanine were
entities within the Westpoint Group of companies.

The matter, which is being prosecuted by the Commonwealth Director
of Public Prosecutions, returns to Court on November 24, 2009.

                     About Westpoint Group

Headquartered in Perth, Western Australia, the Westpoint Group
-- http://westpoint.com.au/-- is engaged in property
development and owns or manages retail and commercial properties
with a total value of over AU$300 million.  The Group's troubles
began in 2005 when the Australian Securities and Investments
Commission commenced investigations on 160 companies within the
Westpoint Group.  The ASIC's investigation led to ASIC
initiating action in late 2005 in the Federal Court of Australia
against a number of mezzanine companies in the Westpoint Group,
including winding up proceedings.  The ASIC contends that
Westpoint projects are suffering from significant shortfall of
assets over liabilities so that hundreds of investors are at
serious risk of not receiving repayment of their investments.
The ASIC also sought wind-up orders after the Westpoint
companies failed to comply with its requirement to lodge
accounts for certain financial years.  These wind-up actions are
still continuing.

In February 2006, the Federal Court in Perth issued a wind-up
order against Westpoint Corporation Pty Ltd.  The ASIC had
applied to wind up the company on grounds of insolvency.  The
ASIC believes that Westpoint Corporation is responsible for
arranging, managing and coordinating Westpoint Group's property
projects as well as holding money for other group companies.
The ASIC was concerned that Westpoint Corporation was unable to
pay its debts, including its obligations under the guarantees
given to the mezzanine companies to make good expected
shortfalls in the repayment of amounts owed to investors.

The Westpoint Group's collapse is considered by many as the
largest of its type in recent years, with small investors being
the biggest group affected.  Investors are currently joining
forces to commence a class action against Westpoint and its
advisors.

* CAMBODIA: At Least 20,000 Garment Workers Lose Jobs This Year
---------------------------------------------------------------
At least 20,000 workers in Cambodia's garment industry lost their
jobs this year due to the global economic downturn, the AFP said
citing a labor ministry report.

According to the report obtained by AFP, 77 factories were closed
across the country resulting in the loss of 30,617 jobs between
January and September.  AFP relates that the report showed
although 40 new factories opened in the same period and created
more employment, more than 20,000 job losses remained.

Another 53 factories also suspended operations during the period
but about half have reopened, the AFP adds.

"The closure of the factories is due to fewer purchase orders,"
Oum Mean, secretary of state at the Ministry of Labour, told AFP.

The AFP states that Cambodia's garment industry is the
impoverished country's largest source of income, providing 80% of
its foreign exchange earnings and employing an estimated 350,000
people last year.

CHINA MINSHENG: Mulls Plan to Increase Holdings in UCBH
-------------------------------------------------------
China Minsheng Banking Corp. is weighing plans to increase its
stake in UCBH Holdings Inc. to bolster its capital, Bloomberg News
reports citing two people briefed on the matter.

Minsheng plans to seek U.S. regulatory approval to boost its

people told Bloomberg.  Minsheng already has an option to raise
its stake, to about 20%, Bloomberg says.

its holding in UCBH, which is operating under an enforcement order
from banking regulators.

SHIMAO PROPERTY: Moody's Affirms 'Ba3' Corporate Family Rating
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has affirmed Shimao Property Holdings
Limited's Ba3 corporate family rating and its B1 senior unsecured
debt rating.  At the same time, Moody's has changed the ratings
outlook to stable from negative.

"The change in Shimao's ratings outlook is supported by recent
favorable developments, including its improved near-term liquidity
position; better-than-expected contract sales in 1H 2009; and the
completion of its acquisition of Shanghai Shimao Co Ltd, a A-share
listed subsidiary that offers it a platform for raising new equity
in China," says Peter Choy, a Moody's Vice President and Senior
Credit Officer.

"At the same time, Moody's foresee heavy payment obligations
arising from more land acquisitions and larger scales of
development in the next 12 -- 18 months, which will weaken
Shimao's strong balance sheet liquidity with cash holdings of
around RMB9 billion as of June 30, 2009.  Nevertheless, Moody's
draw comfort from the company's improved abilities in sales
execution and its demonstrated good access to the domestic bank
market," says Choy, also a lead analyst for Shimao.

Moody's notes that Shimao's Ba3 rating continues to reflect its
large scale of development, diversified and well-located land
bank, and steady income from a portfolio of quality investment
properties.  It also reflects its ability to issue equity to keep
debt/capital leverage at a moderate 45% - 50%.

On the other hand, these strengths are counterbalanced by its
aggressive land acquisitions, which could weaken its liquidity
position, and its financial profile stays vulnerable to the
cyclical nature of China's property market.

"Shimao's profit margin has been weakened by projects in second-
tier cities in China, leading in turn to weaker credit metrics in
1H 2009," comments Choy, adding, "We expect Shimao's gross profit
margin of around 35% - 40% will be lower than the levels recorded
in 2007-2008.  Moreover, the higher debt needed to fund its
projects would result in EBITDA/interest of 3.0 - 3.5x and
debt/total capitalization of 45% - 50%, which appropriately
position the company at the current rating level."

The ratings could experience pressure for an upgrade if Shimao
maintains its strong abilities in sales execution and its adequate
cash buffer, as well as adopt a cautious approach to land
acquisitions and prudent practices in regard to financial
management.

Under such circumstances, Moody's would expect (a) the company to
maintain a balance sheet with unrestricted cash of around 8% - 10%
of total assets to support its operations amid a cyclical
operating environment; (b) interest coverage to improve with
EBITDA/interest exceeding 4.0x - 4.5x; and (c) debt/total
capitalization of 40% - 45%.

On the other hand, the ratings could be downgraded if Shimao (a)
continues to fall short of its target sales; (b) experiences a
further weakening of its balance sheet liquidity; and/or (c)
pursues additional aggressive debt-funded land acquisitions.
Under such conditions, the company's operating cash flow would
weaken and interest coverage would deteriorate with
EBITDA/interest falling below 2.5x - 3.0x and debt/capitalization
rising above 50%.

The last rating action was on 9 June 2009 when Moody's affirmed
Shimao's corporate family rating of Ba3 and bond rating of B1 with
a negative outlook following its announcement of a land purchase
in Xiamen City for RMB 3.02 billion.

Shimao Property Holdings Ltd is a Grand Cayman-incorporated
Chinese property developer that was listed on the Hong Kong Stock
Exchange in July 2006.  It has 34 projects in 22 cities in Eastern
and North Eastern China.

ACTIF CORPORATION: Fitch Assigns 'BB+' National Long-Term Rating
----------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has assigned India-based Actif Corporation Limited
(formerly known as Deccan Mills Real Estate & Infrastructure) a
National Long-term rating of 'BB+(ind)'.  The Outlook is Stable.
Fitch has also assigned ratings of 'BB+(ind)' to the company's
long-term bank loans aggregating INR1,926 million and cash credit
limits of INR320 million.  Simultaneously, Fitch has assigned
F4(ind)' to its INR25 million non-fund based facilities.

The ratings reflect the integrated nature of Actif's operations
(from yarn to grey fabric), its focus on the more stable domestic
textile market, and the benefits derived from Krishna Group's raw
material sourcing strategy.  The ratings are also supported by the
sponsors' vast experience in the textile industry and his
demonstrated performance in other companies of similar business
profile across the group.  The ratings factor in the benefits
arising from the sizable subordinated loans (INR1130 million) from
the sponsor, although any material reduction could act as a
negative rating factor.

Nonetheless, the ratings are constrained by Actif`s high financial
leverage, which was 13.8x (excluding unsecured loan it was 8.6x)
as at FYE09.  This reflects the completion of its large capex of
INR3.9 billion in March 2009, and the benefits of which have
started to accrue in the past five months of the current financial
year.  The capex envisaged the modernisation of its spinning and
knitting equipment, as well as increases in capacity.  Actif falls
under the same management as its parent, KSL Industries Limted
(KSL Industries), and was consolidated despite the parent holding
just 0.16% of Actif as at FYE09.  KSL Industries has provided
Corporate Guarantee for Actif's term loan of INR2000 million;
however, Fitch has taken a standalone view of Actif.

In addition, the ratings are constrained by Fitch's expectation
that pressure on demand and prices will increase due to heightened
competition.  Although Actif's sizable yarn capacity could add to
margin volatility, given its sensitivity to cotton prices, these
risks are partly offset by the company's combined sourcing
arrangement and its long track record in cotton purchasing.  The
ratings are also constrained by the working capital-intensive
nature of the business, which could put pressure on the company's
liquidity and operating cash flows.  With most of its sales being
undertaken through domestic distributors, the current tight
liquidity environment could adversely impact the company's
receivable cycle.

Negative rating factors include greater-than-expected pressure on
working capital and the announcement of additional debt-led capex
plans..  In any case, a net debt/EBITDA of more than 5.0x on a
sustained basis would result in downward rating actions.  On the
other hand, a material and sustained improvement in revenues and
margins, resulting in deleveraging over the medium term could act
as a positive rating trigger.  Fitch will continue to monitor the
credit profile of KSL Industries, and any deterioration in the
consolidated profile could potentially also act as a negative
trigger.

In FY09, Actif reported net sales of INR1659 million (2008: INR264
million), EBITDA margin of 12.9% (2008: 11.9%) and Net Debt to
EBITDA of 13.92x (2008: 48.27x).  Actif is promoted by Mr Saurabh
Kumar Tayal and has the capacity to manufacture 18534 TPA of 30
count cotton yarn and 16640 TPA of 9/10 count coarse cotton yarn.
It also has the facilities to manufacture 19200 TPA of knitted
grey fabrics.


AMUL AUTO: CARE Assigns 'BB+ (SO)' Rating to Bank Facilities
------------------------------------------------------------
CARE has assigned 'CARE BB+ (SO)' [Double B Plus (Structured
Obligation)] rating to the Long-term Bank Facilities of Amul Auto
Components Pvt Ltd aggregating INR6.05 crore.  Facilities with
this rating are considered to offer inadequate safety for timely
servicing of debt obligations.  Such facilities carry high credit
risk.

CARE assigns '+' or '-' signs to be shown after the assigned
rating (wherever necessary) to indicate the relative position of
the firm within the band covered by the rating symbol.

Rating Rationale

Long-term rating is primarily based on the corporate guarantee
extended by Amul Industries Pvt Ltd (AIPL; rated CARE BB+ and PR4)
to the bank facilities of AAPL.

AIPL's ratings are constrained by its relatively weak financial
profile as indicated by moderate profitability, high debt level
and contingent liability in the form of corporate guarantee
extended to its group companies, putting stress on its liquidity
position.

AIPL's ratings also factor in the instances of delays by these
group companies in servicing their debt obligations. The ratings
however take in to account the well established operations of AIPL
in auto components business and its status as a preferred supplier
by leading OEM auto companies.

AAPL's rating is constrained by the instances of delays in
servicing its debt obligations, its short track record of
operations which made losses and weak financial profile due
to accumulated losses. The weaknesses were offset by corporate
guarantee extended by AIPL. Improvement in debt servicing track
record and scaling up the operations to a self sustaining level
with improvement in financial profile of AAPL and that of AIPL
are the key rating sensitivities for AAPL's rating.

AAPL was incorporated in 2006 with an objective to set up a
dedicated unit for manufacturing crankshafts and connecting rods
for Tata Motors Ltd (TML) at its Rudrapur facility.  The unit is
setup in a Special Tata Vendor Park to produce finished
crankshafts and connecting rod.  The Company started commercial
production in January 2008 with installed capacity of 2,40,000 Nos
for connecting rod.

Owing to weak industry scenario during FY09, AAPL, along with
other group companies, approached the State Bank of India (SBI) to
reschedule their loan which was granted in February 2009 by which
term loan installments were deferred by 1 year and 9 months
(September 2008 installment payable in June 2010 and so on).

AAPL has limited track record of operation of only three months in
FY08 during which company reported income of INR2.15 cr and made
cash loss due to high fixed cost and low sales volume.  AAPL had
been very highly geared as on March 31, 2008 due to low net worth
base.  For the nine month period ended December 2008 in FY09,
Company achieved improvement in sales volume and reported income
of INR5.98 cr with cash profit of INR0.16 crore.

          About AIPL (Guarantor of AAPL's bank facilities)

AIPL is the flagship company Amul group of Rajkot, Gujarat,
engaged in various engineering business since 1965.  AIPL is
engaged in supplying of auto components, mainly connecting rods,
crankshaft and camshaft, which are among the five building
blocks of an engine.  AIPL is a leading supplier of connecting
rods in India and is also the sole supplier to many leading OEMs
including Tata Motors Ltd, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd, Eicher Motors
Ltd, Ashok Leyland Ltd and Maruti Udyog Ltd.  Also, AIPL
has stable and growing revenue from export, which constituted
around 23% of total income in FY09.

Total income of AIPL grew at a CAGR of 37% during four year period
till FY08 mainly due to positive industry scenario.  However, for
FY09 (Provisional), AIPL reported total income of INR121.69 crore,
a decline by 15% compared to FY08 due to decline in demand from
OEMs. PBILDT margin and PAT margin also reduced to 9.94% and
1.89% respectively compared to 12.33% and 4.75% respectively in
FY08 due to increase in raw material prices and higher overheads.
Overall gearing (without considering unsecured loan from promoters
as a debt) stood moderately high at 1.89 times as on March 31,
2009.


AMUL CRANKCASE: CARE Rates INR9.19cr Bank Facilities at 'BB+ (SO)'
------------------------------------------------------------------
CARE has assigned 'CARE BB+ (SO)' rating to the Long-term Bank
Facilities of Amul Crankcase Pvt Ltd aggregating INR9.19 crore.
Facilities with this rating are considered to offer inadequate
safety for timely servicing of debt obligations.  Such facilities
carry high credit risk.

CARE assigns '+' or '-' signs to be shown after the assigned
rating (wherever necessary) to indicate the relative position of
the firm within the band covered by the rating symbol.

Rating Rationale

Long-term rating is primarily based on the corporate guarantee
extended by Amul Industries Pvt Ltd (AIPL; rated CARE BB+ and PR4)
to the bank facilities of ACCL.

AIPL's ratings are constrained by its relatively weak financial
profile as indicated by moderate profitability, high debt level
and contingent liability in the form of corporate guarantee
extended to its group companies, putting stress on its liquidity
position.

AIPL's ratings also factor in the instances of delays by these
group companies in servicing their debt obligations.  The ratings
however take in to account the well established operations of AIPL
in auto components business and its status as a preferred supplier
by leading OEM auto companies.

ACCL's rating is also constrained by the instances of delays in
servicing its debt obligations, its short track record of
operations which is exposed to client concentration risk and its
weak financial profile due to accumulated losses.  These
weaknesses were largely offset by the corporate guarantee extended
by AIPL.

Improvement in debt servicing track record and improvement
financial profile of AIPL and its group companies including ACCL
to a self sustaining level are the key rating sensitivities for
ACCL's rating.

ACCL was incorporated in 2006 with an objective to cater the
requirement of Tata Motors Ltd (TML) for its Jamshedpur plant.
The Company started commercial production in Nov. 2006 and has
been involved in the machining of cylinder blocks on job work
basis where raw material is supplied by TML.

Owing to weak industry scenario during FY09, ACCL, along with
other group companies, approached the State Bank of India (SBI) to
reschedule their loan which was granted in February 2009 by which
term loan installments were deferred by 1 year and 9 months
(September 2008 installment payable in June 2010 and so on).

FY08 was the first full year of operation in which company
reported income of INR4.35 cr with PBILDT margin of 26%.  However,
higher interest payment and depreciation has resulted in operating
loss of INR0.96 crore. Gearing ratios remained high due to high
term debt on low networth base having accumulated losses.  As per
the provisional result for the nine month ended Dec. 2008 in FY09,
operating performance improved and company made marginal cash
profit on total income of INR4.12 cr.

AMUL CRANKSHAFT: CARE Assigns 'BB+ (SO)' Rating to Bank Facilities
------------------------------------------------------------------
CARE has assigned 'CARE BB+ (SO)' rating to the Long-term Bank
Facilities of Amul Crankshaft Pvt Ltd aggregating INR5.23 crore.
Facilities with this rating are considered to offer inadequate
safety for timely servicing of debt obligations. Such facilities
carry high credit risk.

CARE assigns '+' or '-' signs to be shown after the assigned
rating (wherever necessary) to indicate the relative position of
the firm within the band covered by the rating symbol.

Rating Rationale

Long-term rating is primarily based on the corporate guarantee
extended by Amul Industries Pvt Ltd (AIPL; rated CARE BB+ and PR4)
to the bank facilities of ACPL.

AIPL's ratings are constrained by its relatively weak financial
profile as indicated by moderate profitability, high debt level
and contingent liability in the form of corporate guarantee

weaknesses were largely offset by the corporate guarantee extended

Improvement in debt servicing track record and improvement
financial profile of AIPL and its group companies including ACPL
to a self sustaining level are the key rating sensitivities for
ACPL's rating.

Promoted by Amul group of Rajkot, ACPL was incorporated in 2005
with an objective to cater to the requirement of Tata Motors Ltd
(TML) for its Pune plant and in future as a satellite plant
serving to other OEMs in the region.  The Company started
commercial production in 2006 and has been involved in the

ANSAL PROPERTIES: Fitch Downgrades National Rating to 'D'
---------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has downgraded India's Ansal Properties &
Infrastructure Limited's National Long-term rating to 'D' from
'BB-(ind)' to reflect the agency's assessment of the company
undergoing a Coercive Debt Exchange.  Simultaneously, the agency
has re-assigned the rating at 'B-(ind)', to reflect API's post-
restructuring credit profile.  As a result of these actions, the
Rating Watch Negative on the National Long-term rating has been
resolved.  The Outlook is Negative.  The other ratings actions on
API are listed at the end of this release.

The downgrade of the National Long-term rating reflects Fitch's
treatment of API's financial restructuring with banks, financial
institutions and mutual funds as "coercive", in line with the
agency's criteria on treatment of such restructurings (for
additional context, please see Fitch's comment titled "India:
Impact of Restructurings on Corporate Ratings" dated 29 May 2009).
Fitch notes that the restructuring has not resulted in significant
impairment of the contractual terms for the creditors, with the
revised terms envisaging an extension in maturity profile and
keeping the other loan terms unchanged.  However, in Fitch's view,
the restructuring was essential for API to avoid a liquidity
crunch and would have otherwise resulted in a default on its debt
obligations.  Fitch has, therefore, treated the restructuring as
an effective default.

Fitch has simultaneously re-assigned the National Long-term rating
at 'B-(ind)', with API's short term issuance ratings re-assigned
'F4(ind)' ratings to reflect the successful execution of
restructuring.  However liquidity risk continues as API, post-
restructuring, has substantial repayments in Q310-Q410 and in
FY11.  The company's cash flow, and consequent deleveraging of the
balance sheet, could potentially be aided by the proposed equity
issuance; however, this has not been factored into the rating.

The Negative Outlook reflects that the operating environment in
the Indian real estate sector, though slightly improved, still
remains subdued making asset monetization and project sales slow
to achieve.  Fitch notes that these are crucial in facilitating
debt repayments in line with the restructured schedule.  Any
shortfall in cash flows from asset monetization or project sales
could affect the extent of de-leveraging and exert renewed
pressure on liquidity, thereby acting as a negative driver for the
rating.  In any event, further restructuring of its debt
obligations that Fitch deems to be "coercive" in line with its
criteria, could again see the rating migrate to default.
The Outlook may be revised to Stable if there is a significant
deleveraging of the balance sheet through monetization of its
assets or through raising of additional equity, and/or an
improvement in the operating environment.

The agency has also downgraded and then re-assigned the ratings of
its debt instruments:

* INR1000 million long-term debt program: downgraded to 'D' from
'BB-(ind)' and re-assigned at 'B-(ind)';

* INR710 million long-term bank loans: downgraded to 'D' from
  'BB-(ind)' and re-assigned at 'B-(ind)';

* INR1721.5 million of fund-based working capital limits
  consisting of cash credit and overdraft: downgraded to 'D' from
  'BB-(ind)' and re-assigned at 'B-(ind)';

* INR200 million short-term bank loans: downgraded to 'F5(ind)'
  from 'F4(ind)' and re-assigned at 'F4(ind)';

* INR1,500 million non-fund based working capital limits:
  downgraded to 'F5(ind)' from 'F4(ind)' and re-assigned at
  'F4(ind)'; and

* INR1000 million short-term debt rating of which INR500m is to
  be carved out of fund-based working capital limits: downgraded
  to 'F5(ind)' from 'F4(ind)' and re-assigned at 'F4(ind)'.

The RWN has been removed from all ratings.

API, founded in 1967, is a real estate development company based
in Delhi.  In FY09, on a consolidated basis it had revenue of
INR6.8 billion with EBIDTA of INR0.9bn and net income of
INR0.3 billion.  The net adjusted debt/EBIDTA in FY09 was 15.8x,
with total debt/equity of 1.2x.  In the three months ended
June 2009, API had revenue of INR1.4 billion and net income of
INR0.1 billion.


ADICO FORGE: CARE Places 'BB+ (SO)' Rating on LT Bank Facilities
----------------------------------------------------------------
CARE has assigned a 'CARE BB+ (SO)' rating to the Long-term Bank
Facilities of Adico Forge Pvt Ltd aggregating INR10.18 crore.
Facilities with this rating are considered to offer inadequate
safety for timely servicing of debt obligations.  Such facilities
carry high credit risk.

Further, CARE has assigned a 'PR4 (SO)'  rating to the Shortterm
Bank Facilities of AFPL aggregating INR3.75 crore.  This rating is
applicable for facilities having tenure up to one year.
Facilities with this rating would have inadequate capacity for
timely payment of short-term debt obligations and carry very high
credit risk.  Such facilities are susceptible to default.

CARE assigns '+' or '-' signs to be shown after the assigned
rating (wherever necessary) to indicate the relative position of
the firm within the band covered by the rating symbol.

Rating Rationale

Both long-term and short-term ratings are primarily based on the
corporate guarantee extended by Amul Industries Pvt Ltd (AIPL;
rated CARE BB+ and PR4) to the bank facilities of AFPL.

AIPL's ratings are constrained by its relatively weak financial
profile as indicated by moderate profitability, high debt level
and contingent liability in the form of corporate guarantee
extended to its group companies, putting stress on its liquidity
position.

AIPL's ratings also factor in the instances of delays by these
group companies in servicing their debt obligations.  The ratings
however take in to account the well established operations of AIPL
in auto components business and its status as a preferred supplier
by leading OEM auto companies.

AFPL's ratings are also constrained by the instances of delays in
servicing its debt obligations, its short track record of
operations and weak financial profile along with the stressed
liquidity position which were largely offset by the corporate
guarantee extended by AIPL.  The ratings also take in to
consideration the operational synergy of AFPL with AIPL.
Improvement in debt servicing track record and improvement
financial profile of AIPL and its group companies including AFPL
to a self sustaining level are the key rating sensitivities for
AFPL's rating.

AFPL was established in 2004 as a measure of backward integration
for operations of AIPL, the flagship Company of Amul group, having
manufacturing facility at Pune.  AFPL manufactures forged
connected rods (semi-finished products) and supplies to
AIPL who in turn supplies machined connecting rods (finished
product) to automobile companies/ engine manufacturers.

AFPL has three presses with capacity of 1000 ton, 1600 ton and
2500 ton which can produce forged components that weigh from
0.6 kg to 5 kg.  Capacity utilization has remained in the range
of 70-76% during last three years ended March 2009.

Owing to weak industry scenario during FY09, AFPL, along with
other group companies, approached their bankers to reschedule
their loan.  The bankers, in February 2009, agreed to defer the
term loan installments by 1 year and 9 months (September 2008
installment payable in June 2010 and so on).

Total income of AFPL grew to INR 22.10 crore for FY08 from a low
level of INR5.45 crore in FY06.  Increase in scale of operation
resulted into improvement in PBILDT margin from 7.98% in FY06 to
13.57% in FY08.  The Company remained highly geared with Long term
debt equity ratio and overall gearing ratio respectively at 4.03
times and 4.90 times as on March 31, 2008.  As per provisional
result for 9MFY09, the Company reported total income of INR18
crore with PBILDT margin of 8.97 %.  PBILDT margin declined during
9MFY09 due to steep increase in raw material prices coupled with
slow down in demand off-take.

          About AIPL (Guarantor of AFPL's bank facilities)

AIPL is the flagship company Amul group of Rajkot, Gujarat,
engaged in various engineering business since 1965.  AIPL is
engaged in supplying of auto components, mainly connecting rods,
crankshaft and camshaft, which are among the five building blocks
of an engine.  AIPL is a leading supplier of connecting rods in
India and is also the sole supplier to many leading OEMs including
Tata Motors Ltd, Mahindra & Mahindra Ltd, Eicher Motors Ltd, Ashok
Leyland Ltd and Maruti Udyog Ltd.  Also, AIPL has stable and
growing revenue from export, which constituted around 23% of total
income in FY09.

Total income of AIPL grew at a CAGR of 37% during four year period
till FY08 mainly due to positive industry scenario.  However, for
FY09 (Provisional), AIPL reported total income of INR121.69 crore,
a decline by 15% compared to FY08 due to decline in demand from
OEMs.  PBILDT margin and PAT margin also reduced to 9.94% and
1.89% respectively compared to 12.33% and 4.75% respectively in
FY08 due to increase in raw material prices and higher overheads.
Overall gearing (without considering unsecured loan from promoters
as a debt) stood moderately high at 1.89 times as on March 31,
2009.


PARSVNATH DEVELOPERS: Fitch Cuts National Long-Term Rating to 'D'
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has downgraded India's Parsvnath Developers
Limited's National Long-term rating to 'D' from 'BB-(ind)' to
reflect the agency's assessment of company undergoing a Coercive
Debt Exchange Simultaneously, the agency has re-assigned PDL a 'B-
(ind)' National Long-term rating to reflect its post-restructuring
credit profile.  As a result of these actions, the Rating Watch
Negative on the National Long-term rating has been resolved.  The
Outlook is Negative.

The downgrade of the National Long-term rating reflects Fitch's
treatment of PDL's financial restructuring with banks, financial
institutions and mutual funds as "coercive", in line with the
agency's criteria on treatment of such restructurings (for
additional context, please see Fitch's comment titled "India:
Impact of Restructurings on Corporate Ratings" dated 29 May 2009).
Fitch notes that the restructuring has not resulted in significant
impairment of the contractual terms for the creditors, with the
revised terms envisaging an extension in maturity profile keeping
the other loan terms unchanged.  However, in Fitch's view, the
restructuring was essential for PDL to avoid a liquidity crunch
and would have otherwise resulted in a default on its debt
obligations.  Fitch has, therefore, treated the restructuring as
an effective default.

Fitch has simultaneously re-assigned the National Long-term rating
at 'B-(ind)', with the short term issuance ratings re-assigned
'F4(ind)' ratings, reflecting the successful execution of
restructuring.  PDL's financial profile has also been aided by its
recent asset monetization, equity raising (through a qualified
institutional placement - QIP, aggregating INR1680m) and project
level stake sale.  However liquidity risk continues as PDL, post-
restructuring, has substantial repayments in Q310-Q410 and in
FY11.

The Negative Outlook reflects that the operating environment in
the Indian real estate sector, though slightly improved, remains
subdued making asset monetisation and project sales slow to
achieve.  Fitch notes that these are crucial in facilitating debt
repayments in line with the restructured schedule.  Any shortfall
in cash flows from asset monetisation or project sales could
constrain the extent of de-leveraging and exert renewed pressure
on liquidity, thereby acting as a negative driver for the rating.
In any event, further restructuring of its debt obligations that
Fitch deems to be "coercive" in line with its criteria, could
again see the rating migrate to default.

The Outlook may be revised to Stable if there is significant
deleveraging of the balance sheet through monetization of its
assets or through raising of additional equity, and/or an
improvement in the operating environment could result in.

The agency has also downgraded and then re-assigned the ratings of
its debt instruments:

-- INR2 billion long-term debt and INR9bn loan term bank loan:
    downgraded to 'D' from 'BB-(ind)' and re-assigned at 'B-
    (ind)';

-- INR2 billion short-term debt: downgraded to 'F5(ind)' from
    'F4(ind)'
    and re-assigned at 'F4(ind)';

The RWN has been removed from all ratings.

PDL is among the larger real estate developers in India.  Having
started as a real estate marketing company in 1990, it has
operated as a builder-developer since 1994.  The company made
INR2.1bn in operating EBITDAR on revenue of INR7bn in FYE09.  The
corresponding figures for Q110 were INR431m and INR1137m,
respectively.


BEST INDIA: ICRA Assigns 'LBB' Rating on INR10MM Bank Facilities
----------------------------------------------------------------
ICRA has assigned an 'LBB' rating to the INR10 million fund-based
sub-limit of Best India Tobacco Suppliers Private Limited.  ICRA
has also assigned an A4 rating to INR175 million fund based bank
limits and INR10 million non-fund based bank limits of BITL.

The ratings are constrained by the Company's small scale of
operations restricting economies of scale and financial
flexibility.  The ratings are also tempered by the weak financial
profile of BITL characterized by stressed net margins, low
accruals and high working capital intensity.  The Company faces
high business risk from heavy customer and geographic
concentration of sales.  Operating margins of BITL are exposed to
volatility in raw tobacco prices and exchange rate fluctuations.
The ratings however take note of the significant experience of
promoters of over five decades in the tobacco industry.  The
ratings also take into consideration the favorable market
environment for Indian tobacco exports due to anticipated decline
in tobacco production in countries like Zimbabwe, China and
competitive production and conversion costs of Indian tobacco
vis-a-vis tobacco from other nations.

                         About Best India

Best India Tobacco Suppliers Private Limited was incorporated in
the year 1981-82 in Guntur, Andhra Pradesh.  The Company is
primarily engaged in exporting processed tobacco.  Promoters and
their relatives hold 100% stake in the Company.  BITL procures raw
tobacco, processes it and exports it to various countries like
Tunisia, Algeria and Morocco.  The Company is currently dealing
primarily with Flue Cured Virginia (FCV), Burley and Rustica
varieties of tobacco.

The Company reported a net profit after tax of INR13.7 million on
operating income of INR129.9 million for the year ending March 31,
2009, against profit after tax of INR 0.6 million on operating
income of INR117.1 million for the year ended March 31, 2008.


MAGPPIE INTERNATIONAL: Stressed Liquidity Cues ICRA 'LBB' Ratings
-----------------------------------------------------------------
ICRA has assigned 'LBB' rating to the INR150 million fund based
limits and INR140 million term loan of Magppie International
Limited.  ICRA has also assigned A4 rating to the INR170 million
non-fund based limits MIL.

The ratings take into account significant experience of the
promoters in stainless steel industry, MIL's established brand
name in the stainless steel kitchenware products and its strong
presence in the export market.  The ratings are however
constrained by competitive nature of stainless steel kitchenware
industry; susceptibility of MIL's profitability to adverse
movements in raw material prices and exchange rates and adverse
financial profile of the company as reflected by its low
profitability (company reported losses of around INR40 million in
FY2009) and its relatively high gearing level of 3.58 times as on
March 31, 2009.  Further, the ratings also take into account
stressed liquidity position of the company as reflected by recent
debt restructuring undertaken by MIL.


VISHAL RETAIL: CARE Cuts Ratings on Long-Term Bank Debts to 'C'
---------------------------------------------------------------
CARE has revised the rating assigned to the Long-term Bank
Facilities aggregating INR292.04 cr of Vishal Retail Limited from
'CARE BB' to 'CARE C'.  This rating is applicable for facilities
having tenure of over one year.  Facilities with this rating are
considered to be having very high likelihood of default in
the payment of interest and principal.

Rating Rationale

The rating revision takes into consideration the acute liquidity
constraints faced by the company consequent upon steep
deterioration in operational and financial performance and the
resultant restructuring of the company's debt.  Going forward, the
impact of debt restructuring exercise on the overall credit
profile of the company would be the key rating sensitivity.

                       About Vishal Retail

Vishal Retail Ltd incorporated in the year 2001, is engaged in the
retailing of apparels, household merchandise and consumer good
items.  The company is promoted by Mr. Ram Chandra Agarwal, the

consistently scaled up the retail area over the years and had 170
stores covering a retail space of 3 mn sq. ft. as on July 24,
2009.

VRL reported a total income of INR1,332cr and incurred a net loss
of INR94cr in FY09, the loss primarily on account of the stock
revaluation exercise taken up by the Company for its slow-moving
and obsolete stock.  Due to adverse market conditions, the company
registered a dip in income in Q1FY10 as well and posted net losses
of INR90cr.  Due to the deterioration in financial performance
characterized by cash losses, VRL has approached its lenders to
reschedule its entire debt portfolio.

BANK CENTURY: Changes Name to Bank Mutiara
------------------------------------------
PT Bank Century Tbk has officially changed its name to Bank
Mutiara, as part of efforts to rebuild its image, according to The
Jakarta Post.

According to the report, Bank Century President Director Maryono
said Mutiara, or pearl, was chosen as the new name for the bank
because it reflected "valuable lessons to  produce pearls".  The
name change cost the bank IDR1.8 billion (US$180,000), Mr. Maryono
added.

As reported in Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific on Sept. 17,
2009, The Jakarta Post said that the BPK aims to conclude its
final report in the audit of Bank Century's bailout that has
swollen to IDR6.76 trillion (US$676 million) before Oct. 19.

BPK Chairman Anwar Nasution said he would focus on examining Bank
Century since its establishment in 2004 from the merger of three
banks -- Bank Danpac, Bank Pikko and Bank CIC -- until the bank
received an injection of IDR6.76 trillion from the Deposit
Insurance Corporation (LPS).

The BPK would scrutinize Bank Century's balance of payments, which
turned negative in November last year and caused the government to
intervene via the LPS.

Bank Century is a relatively small lender with total assets of
IDR15 trillion (US$1.3 billion).  The Post said the government
decided to take over Bank Century -- the first such move since the
1997-1998 crisis -- to save it from collapse and restore
confidence in the banking sector.

                         About Bank Century

Headquartered in Jakarta, Indonesia, PT Bank Century Tbk --
http://www.centurybank.co.id/-- is a financial institution.  The
Bank's products and services include deposits, savings, loans,

BANK NEGARA: Shareholders OK Plan to Create Islamic Banking Unit
---------------------------------------------------------------
The Jakarta Post reports that the shareholders of PT Bank Negara
Indonesia has approved a plan to separate the bank's sharia
banking division.

The Post relates BNI president director Gatot Suwondo said the
separated unit, to be called BNI Syariah, will be equipped with a
paid-up capital of IDR1 trillion (around US$104 million).

According to the report, BNI will control a 99.9% stake in the
company, contributing 99.9% of the investment needed — around
IDR999 billion.  The report says that the remaining 0.1% will be
covered by the bank's insurance unit, PT BNI Life Insurance.

The bank, the report notes, is now in the process of waiting for
permission from the central bank to transfer assets and employees
to the new company.  It is expected that BNI Syariah will be
officially independent by early next year, the Post notes.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific on
September 17, 2009, Bloomberg News said Bank Negara will separate
its Islamic-banking unit and seek investors to boost the new
entity's capital.

Bloomberg disclosed that Indonesia, with the world's largest
Muslim population, aims to broaden its Islamic banking industry to
attract more investment from the Middle East and overtake Malaysia
as the Asia-Pacific region's Islamic finance hub.  According to
Bloomberg, Shariah law bans the payment and receipt of interest,
prohibits investment in businesses such as gambling and alcohol,
and stresses profit-sharing.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific on
Dec. 11, 2008, Fitch Ratings affirmed PT Bank Negara Indonesia
Tbk's Long- term foreign and local currency Issuer Default Ratings
at 'BB' with a Stable Outlook, Short-term foreign currency IDR at
'B', National Long-term Rating at 'AA-(idn)' (AA minus(idn)) with
a Stable Outlook, Individual rating at 'D', Support rating at '3',
and Support rating floor at 'BB-' (BB minus).


PT BERLIAN: Fitch Puts 'B' Issuer Default Rating on Negative Watch
------------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has placed Indonesia-based PT Berlian Laju Tanker
Tbk's Long-term foreign and local currency Issuer Default Ratings
of 'B' on Rating Watch Negative, following the company's
announcement on October 5, 2009, that it plans to acquire Camillo
Eitzen & Co ASA, an Oslo-based financially distressed shipping
company.  Fitch has also placed the 'CCC' rating of the
US$400 million senior unsecured notes due 2014 issued by BLT
Finance B.V.  and guaranteed by BLT on RWN.  CECO is a large ship
operator involved in chemical, gas and bulk shipping.  If the
transaction goes through, the combined entity will become the
world's largest chemical tanker operator.

The RWN reflects Fitch's concerns that the proposed acquisition
may further weaken BLT's already weak financial profile.  CECO is
already in the process of restructuring its debt (US$1.4 billion
at June 2009) following a decline in asset values and lower cash
generation due to weak conditions in the shipping markets.  CECO's
unadjusted leverage net of cash at H109 was 9.3x compared to BLT's
adjusted leverage net of cash of 6.7x.  CECO's profitability is
much weaker compared to BLT.  In the six months ended 30 June
2009, CECO reported revenues and EBITDA of US$539 million and
US$74.6 million respectively, compared to BLT's US$305 million in
revenue and US$127 million in EBITDA.  Fitch also believes that
the proposed acquisition demonstrates BLT management's high risk
appetite.

However, Fitch notes that BLT plans to structure the transaction
in a manner that will lower risks to the company.  The plan
includes an all-share offer for the shareholders of CECO (via
mandatorily exchangeable bonds), raising an additional
US$200 million in equity at BLT, and further re-structuring of
CECO's debt.  Nonetheless, financial performance of CECO can
deteriorate further given the weak shipping markets and the
company may require further support from its shareholders.

The transaction is subject to shareholder approval, BLT's ability
to raise US$200 million via mandatorily exchangeable bonds, a due
diligence on CECO by BLT, and agreements with CECO's lenders on
the terms of restructuring CECO's debt to the satisfaction of BLT.

If BLT acquires CECO, Fitch will evaluate the final structure of
the transaction for additional risks stemming from the
acquisition, such as the debt burden assumed, potential financial
support that may have to be provided to CECO and compliance with
loan covenants.  Given the non-cash nature of the offer and BLT's
plan to raise additional equity, the proposed structure is
immediately positive for its liquidity.  However, even if CECO's
debt is ring-fenced, Fitch's evaluation may take into account the
debt of all CECO-group companies in order to capture integration
risks and potential for future cash calls on shareholders of CECO.

If the deal is aborted, BLT's ratings will likely be affirmed with
a Negative Outlook.  BLT has improved its liquidity position via
asset sales, and the issuance of new debt and equity to date in
2009.  As at June 2009, the company had cash reserves of
US$317 million (without the new equity proceeds of around
US$60 million).  The potential Negative Outlook reflects BLT's
high debt maturities in 2010, its heavy committed capex pipeline
through 2012, and the continued weak conditions expected in
shipping markets until 2011.

GIANNI VERSACE: To Close Japan Stores; Review Business Strategy
---------------------------------------------------------------
Gianni Versace S.p.A. will close its Japanese stores and review
its entire business strategy as newly appointed Chief Executive
Officer Gian Giacomo Ferraris makes his mark on the business,
Chris Staiti at Bloomberg News reports.

"The Versace boutiques in Japan no longer represented the brand
image and it was felt to be more advantageous for the company to
close them and start with a clean slate," Bloomberg quoted
Federico Steiner, an outside spokesman for Versace in Milan, as
saying in a statement.  Mr. Steiner told Bloomberg that the stores
are now in the process of being closed.

According to Bloomberg, Mr. Steiner wouldn’t comment on a report
by Nikkei English News that Versace will liquidate the Japanese
unit by the end of the year, other than to say the company is
"exploring its options."

Gianni Versace S.p.A. -- http://www.versace.com/-- is an Italian-

JAPAN AIRLINES: To Shelve Tie-Up Talks with Delta, AMR
------------------------------------------------------
Japan Airlines Corp. plans to put on hold alliance talks held
separately with Delta Air Lines and AMR Corp's American Airlines,
Reuters reports citing Kyodo news agency.

According to Reuters, the news agency said JAL has decided to
focus first on putting together a restructuring plan with the
government task force that is overseeing the airline's revival
after the government backed a JPY100 billion (US$1.11 billion)
loan.

The Japan Times relates that JAL changed course after transport
minister Seiji Maehara recently launched a new task force
comprised of corporate turnaround experts who will evaluate the
assets of the airline and review the rehabilitation plan it
submitted last month.

The Times, citing unnamed sources, says the company hopes to
resume negotiations with Delta and American after it draws up a
road map for turning around its operations.

Under the guidance of the new task force, which replaced an expert
panel set up by the previous administration, says the Times, JAL
will hammer out an outline of its new business improvement plan by
around late October and finalize it around the end of November.

As reported by the TCR on Sept. 15, 2009, AMR Corp. and Delta Air
are reportedly in separate talks with Japan Airlines to forge an
expansive joint venture with the carrier.  The Wall Street Journal
said that American Airlines would also consider taking a minority
stake in JAL, although any such investment would likely be capped
at hundreds of millions of dollars.  Delta is also negotiating to
acquire a minority stake of around $300 million in JAL.  The
Journal relates that Delta wants JAL to join its rival SkyTeam
alliance.

L-JAC 3: Fitch Downgrades Ratings on Eight Classes of Notes
-----------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has downgraded eight classes of L-JAC 3 Trust's
trust beneficiary interests due April 2013 and removed all from
Rating Watch Negative, following the implementation of the
recently published criteria for Japanese CMBS surveillance.  Full
details of the rating actions are given below:

  -- JPY19.93 billion* Class A TBIs affirmed at 'AAA'; off RWN;
     Outlook  Stable;

  -- JPY4.0 billion* Class B TBIs downgraded to 'A' from 'AA';
     off RWN; Outlook Stable;

  -- JPY4.0 billion* Class C TBIs downgraded to 'BBB' from 'A';
     off RWN; Outlook Negative;

  -- JPY4.0 billion* Class D-1 TBIs downgraded to 'BB-' from
     'BBB'; off RWN; Outlook Negative;

  -- JPY1.4 billion* Class E-1 TBIs downgraded to 'B' from 'BBB-';
off
     RWN; Outlook Negative;

  -- JPY1.4 billion* Class F-1 TBIs downgraded to 'CCC' from
     'BB+'; off RWN; assigned a Recovery Rating of 'RR4';

  -- JPY1.5 billion* Class G-1 TBIs downgraded to 'CCC' from 'BB';
     off RWN; assigned a Recovery Rating of 'RR6';

  -- JPY1.0 billion* Class H-1 TBIs downgraded to 'CCC' from
     'BB-'; off RWN; assigned a Recovery Rating of 'RR6';

  -- JPY0.583 billion* Class I TBIs downgraded to 'CCC' from 'B+';
     off RWN; assigned a Recovery Rating of 'RR6';

  -- Interest (dividend) -only Class X-2 TBIs affirmed at 'AAA';
     Outlook Stable.

  * as of October 2, 2009

Fitch downgraded all rated classes except classes A and X-2,
reflecting the agency's view over the potential recovery amounts
from the underlying loans.  The agency affirmed the ratings on the
Class A TBIs given the low loan to value ratio.

Fitch revised the cap rates of the underlying properties, taking
into consideration the remaining period to maturity of each of the
loans and the current stressed commercial real estate market in
Japan.  As a result, Fitch has adopted values for the underlying
properties that are 31.7% lower than the initial value on average,
for the purpose of this review.  The actual cash flows of the
underlying collateral properties are generally in line with
Fitch's initial expectations.

Fitch has resolved the RWN status on all classes, since the
likelihood of additional rating action has reduced given the
relatively stable operational status of the underlying properties,
and the conservative property revaluations.

The agency has assigned Negative Outlooks to classes C, D-1, and
E-1 TBIs, reflecting the risk that the value of one underlying
property may decline further under severe market conditions as the
loan maturity approaches.

Fitch assigned ratings to this transaction in October 2006.  At
closing, the TBIs were secured by seven loans collateralized by 17
properties.  Currently, the TBIs are ultimately secured by three
loans collateralized by three properties.  Six classes of TBIs
have been already paid in full.

The ratings on the dividend-only Class X-2 TBIs only address the
likelihood of receiving dividend payments, while principal on the
related underlying assets remain outstanding.

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.


L-JAC FIVE: S&P Puts Ratings on Notes on CreditWatch Negative
-------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services placed its ratings on the class
A and B trust certificates issued under the L-JAC Five Trust
Beneficial Interest transaction on CreditWatch with negative
implications.  At the same time, Standard & Poor's kept its
ratings on classes C to D-2 and classes E-1 to J-1 on CreditWatch
with negative implications, where they had been placed on July 6,
2009.  In addition, S&P also affirmed the ratings on classes D-3
and X.

Standard & Poor's reviewed the repayment prospects of about 100
loans (total outstanding loan balance: about JPY660 billion)
backing rated CMBS transactions that are due to mature by the end
of August 2010.  Following the review, on July 6, 2009, S&P placed
the ratings on 93 tranches of 23 CMBS transactions, including
those on classes C to D-2 and classes E-1 to J-1 of L-JAC Five, on
CreditWatch with negative implications.

Three of the transaction's underlying nonrecourse loans
(representing a combined 10.2% or so of the total initial issuance
amount of the trust certificates) are due to mature by the end of
August 2010 and are "loans considered to be in default," as stated
in the aforementioned report.  In addition, another two underlying
loans (representing a combined 28.2% or so of the total initial
issuance amount of the trust certificates) had defaulted, and
collection procedures are underway, in accordance with the
transaction agreement.

Standard & Poor's placed its ratings on classes A and B on
CreditWatch negative and maintained its ratings on classes C to D-
2 and classes E-1 to J-1 on CreditWatch negative because: (1) the
three "loans considered to be in default" are backed by regional
retail properties, and there is a possibility that S&P may need to
lower its assumptions, with regard to the recovery prospects of
the collateral properties, made during the aforementioned
CreditWatch placements (on July 6, 2009) to reflect information
obtained through a meeting with the loan asset manager; and (2)
with regard to one of the two loans that had already defaulted,
S&P need to lower its assumption with respect to the recovery
amount from the collateral property to reflect various
information, including those in the servicer's collection plan.
Moreover, there appears to be uncertainty over the recovery
prospects of the other defaulted loan.

Standard & Poor's intends to review its ratings on the trust
certificates after considering: (1) the performance of the
collateral properties backing the three "loans considered to be in
default" and their recovery prospects, based on the possibility
that the loans may indeed not be repaid and the properties may
need to be liquidated; and (2) the recovery prospects considering
information that S&P received during the collection process
relating to the two defaulted loans.

At this point, S&P has affirmed the ratings on classes D3 and X.
However, S&P is considering amending the rating methodology for
interest-only certificates, which include class X of this
transaction.  If the proposal is adopted, it could affect the
rating on class X.       L-JAC Five is a multi-borrower CMBS
transaction.  The trust certificates were originally backed by
loans extended to 13 obligors.  The loans were originally backed
by 81 real estate properties and real estate beneficial interests.
The transaction was arranged by Lehman Brothers Japan Inc. Premier
Asset Management Co. is the transaction servicer.

MAZDA MOTOR: Plans to Raise US$1.1 Billion; Cuts Loss Forecast
--------------------------------------------------------------
Mazda Motor Corp. plans to raise JPY96 billion (US$1.1 billion) in
a share sale to fund development of hybrid vehicles, The Financial
Times reports.

According to the report, Mazda said it would offer 363 million new
shares to investors, equivalent to one-quarter of its outstanding
stock, and sell an additional 97 million existing shares that it
bought about a year ago from Ford Motor, its long-time US partner.

Of the new shares, the FT says, 315 million are to be sold through
a public offering and 48 million shares may be issued to Nomura
Securities, one of the deal's underwriters, depending on demand.

The FT notes Mazda said it planned to spend JPY60 billion of the
new cash on technological innovation.  According to the FT, Mazda
also plans to raise the average fuel-efficiency of its fleet by
30% by 2015 compared with 2008, by introducing next-generation
drives and improving the performance of its petrol-burning
internal-combustion engines.

Earnings Forecast Revision

Mazda Motor on Monday disclosed upwardly revised projections for
the full fiscal year through March 2010.

The FY2009 first half initial projections were for sales revenue
of JPY930 billion, an operating loss of JPY60 billion, and a
JPY50 billion net loss.  With the revised outlook, Mazda now
forecasts sales revenue to be JPY1 trillion, a JPY70 billion
increase.  Operating loss is now projected to be JPY23 billion,
a JPY37 billion improvement, and net loss to be JPY26 billion, a
JPY24 billion improvement.  These revised figures mainly reflect
increased sales volumes since the initial forecasts. The revisions
also reflect the depreciation of the yen against major currencies
including the Euro.

Global sales are now expected to be 572,000 units in the first
half, an increase of 29,000 units over the initial figure.  This
is due to expanded demand resulting from government economic
stimulus measures in Japan, the United States, Europe, and other
nations, and from the strong sales of the new Mazda3 (known as the
Mazda Axela in Japan).

Mazda's return to profitability in operating profit/loss,
initially forecasted to be in the second half of the fiscal year,
is now projected to be achieved ahead of schedule and occur in the
second quarter.  This is attributable to contributions from
further cost reduction actions in addition to the abovementioned
factors.

                 Projections for Full Year FY2009

Mazda is also revising its full-year outlook for FY2009.  Global
sales are now projected to be 1,155,000 units, an increase of
55,000 units over the initial full-year estimate of 1.1 million
units.  Although the end of scrappage incentives in Europe are
expected to adversely impact on the market in the second half,
Mazda now expects to narrow the decline in global sales to 8
percent year-on-year on the full contribution of the new Mazda3's
global launch.

Based on the upward revisions to the first half and projections
for the second half, the full-year outlook is for improved
performance in each area, with revenue projected to be JPY2.13
trillion, an operating loss of JPY13 billion, and a net loss of
JPY26 billion.  Operating loss would be an estimated JPY37 billion
improvement compared to the initial operating loss forecast of
JPY50 billion.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific on
March 23, 2009, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services revised to
negative from stable the outlook on its 'BB' long-term corporate
credit rating on Mazda Motor Corp., reflecting increased pressure
on the company's profitability and cash flow amid ongoing
turbulence in global auto markets.  At the same time, Standard &
Poor's affirmed its long-term corporate credit and 'BB+' senior
unsecured debt ratings on Mazda.


WMT GLOBAL: S&P Downgrades Ratings on Various Classes of Notes
--------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its ratings on the
class A to E fixed-rate notes issued under the WMT Global Funding
I Inc. transaction.  At the same time, Standard & Poor's kept the
ratings on the class A to C notes on CreditWatch with negative
implications, and removed the ratings on classes D and E from
CreditWatch negative.  The ratings on classes A to E had been
placed on CreditWatch negative on April 9, 2009.

S&P downgraded classes A and B and kept the ratings on classes A
to C on CreditWatch with negative implications because S&P hold
the view that uncertainty is mounting over the recovery prospects
of the transaction's underlying loan that defaulted in October
2008.  Specifically, a number of factors, including procedures
described in the notes' agreement and the type of properties
(extended-stay limited-service apartments), are causing delays in
the sale of the related collateral properties.  Standard & Poor's
believes that delays may hamper recovery by the transaction's
legal final maturity date in November 2010, given the limited
remaining period of time (one year and one month).

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

Meanwhile, S&P downgraded classes C to E because S&P believes that
there is also uncertainty over the recovery prospects of the
collateral properties that ultimately secure the aforementioned
defaulted loan.  This view is based on S&P's assessment of the
collateral properties' characteristics.

Standard & Poor's also removed the ratings on classes D and E from
CreditWatch with negative implications.  S&P intend to examine
reports submitted by the servicer, and assess a number of factors,
including progress in the implementation of the collection plan,
as well as the performance and recovery prospects of the
collateral properties.

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

GENERAL MOTORS: Shutters Thai Assembly Plant Amid Strike
--------------------------------------------------------
General Motors Thailand has temporarily shut its assembly plant in
southeast Rayong province due to a strike by workers.

Bangkok Post reports that about 200 union workers filed a notice
with GM on Saturday of their intention to strike Monday to demand
higher wages, welfare and benefits but GM management rushed to
close the plant before the strike began to ensure the safety and
security of all employees and property.

Citing a GM statement, the Post says that during the temporary
closure, the company would continue to pay all wages - and
variable bonus payments, welfare and benefits - to most of its
employees, except to those striking unionized employees.

The Post notes GM said it would endeavor to conduct further
negotiations with the union members to seek an amicable solution
to their demands as soon as possible.

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.
