COLONIAL FIRST: Freezes AU$850-Mln Mortgage Fund
------------------------------------------------
Angus Whitley at Bloomberg News reports that Colonial First State,
owned by Commonwealth Bank of Australia, froze an AU$850 million
(US$785 million) mortgage income fund to withdrawals after signs
some of the commercial property loans may sour.

The report, citing Colonial spokesman Matthew Coleman, says that
the Sydney-based fund manager told investors in the Colonial First
State Mortgage Income Fund last week that a "small number" of
mortgages had the potential to become bad debts.  Investors will
be updated next month, he said.

"We've commenced a review of the fund's assets to fully assess
these loans and determine the impact on the fund and investors,"
Bloomberg quoted Mr. Coleman as saying.  "One borrower in
particular has experienced a sudden deterioration in its ability
to make mortgage repayments."  That borrower accounts for 2.5%
percent of the fund, Mr. Coleman added.

According to Bloomberg, Mr. Coleman said Colonial has six funds
with mortgage-related assets, including the Colonial First State
Mortgage Income Fund, worth a combined AU$2.6 billion.  Since
those funds were closed to withdrawals in October 2008, the asset
manager has paid about AU$550 million to investors in periods when
redemptions were permitted, Mr. Coleman said, the last of which
started on Nov. 25.  Of that total, the Colonial First State
Mortgage Income Fund has paid out AU$185 million, he said.

"We have made no other announcements to investors in relation to
any bad debts that have impacted the other funds with mortgage
assets," Mr. Coleman was quoted by Bloomberg as saying.

Colonial First State is the funds management arm of Commonwealth
Bank of Australia.


GRIFFIN COAL: Faces Insolvent Trading Probe; Claims Reach $1 Bil.
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Rebecca Le May at the Herald Sun reports that administrators of
Griffin Coal Mining Co. are investigating whether the coal miner
was trading while insolvent.

The report also says creditor claims against the Company so far
total about AU$1 billion.

"All claims are subject to investigation and adjudication," the
report quoted administrator Brian McMaster at KordaMentha as
saying at the first meeting of the company's creditors in Perth on
Wednesday.  "It is not a recognition that the claims are valid."

According to the report, the question of whether the company could
have been trading while insolvent was raised by a creditor, who
claimed Griffin Coal had not paid a November invoice but continued
to rack up debts.

Mr. McMaster said at the meeting that determining the date of
insolvency was a "very important" part of the administrator's
probe, the report relates.

Mr. McMaster, as cited by the report, disclosed that the
AU$1 billion creditor claims included a "quite complicated" tax
liability of about AU$173 million.  Secured debt includes about
AU$30 million in properties mortgaged with Commonwealth Bank and
St George Bank, plus another AU$10 million worth of property
related to Griffin Coal chairman Ric Stowe.  "All other claims are
unsecured," Mr. McMaster said.

Mr. McMaster said AU$750,000 in superannuation contributions had
not been paid to workers and formed part of their entitlement
claim, the report relates.

According to the Herald Sun, Mr. McMaster said it was "business as
usual" for Griffin Coal's operations at Collie in WA's south,
which cost about $500,000 a day to operate, while it was
determined whether to sell or restructure the business.

The administrator will abandon a bid to secure a AU$4 million
pre-payment for coal supply from state electricity generator Verve
Energy if settlement on terms cannot be agreed in coming days, the
report adds.

The Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific, citing Bloomberg News,
reported on January 4, 2010, that Griffin Coal Mining Co.
appointed Kordamentha as administrator with total debts amounting
to about AU$700 million.

Bloomberg said the coal supplier defaulted on an interest payment
last month to bondholders owed US$475 million and also missed a
payment to Australia's tax authority.

Based in Australia, The Griffin Coal Mining Company Pty Ltd --
http://www.griffincoal.com.au/-- is engaged in coal mining and
processing.  Griffin Coal operates major mines in the Collie area,
approximately 220 kilometers south east of Perth.  The Company is
producing more than three million tons of coal per year. Griffin
Coal has operations at Ewington Mine, Muja Mine and Buckingham
Mine.


MACQUARIE OFFICE: Sells Frankfurt Property for EUR39.5 Mil.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Macquarie Office Trust said it has agreed to sell a property in
Frankfurt for EUR39.5 million (AU$61.7 million).

"The sale is expected to return approximately EUR10 million
(AU$15 million) in cash to the Trust," Macquarie Office Trust said
in a statement Thursday.  "The transaction also will eliminate the
potential need for the Trust to inject EUR3.8 million (AU$6.0
million) into the loan facility for this property, which was
expected to occur in February 2010.

Chief Executive Officer of Macquarie Office Trust, Adrian Taylor
said "the sale of the Frankfurt property on a cap rate of 6.5%
represents a progress on the Trust's medium-term strategy to
reweight its portfolio back to Australia."

"Asset sales since December 2008 now totaled more than $522
million, with the latest sale allowing the Trust to continue its
strategy of repaying debt, and further strengthening its balance
sheet, Mr. Taylor said.  "Some of the proceeds from the sale may
be invested in the trust's high quality office portfolio in
Australia or in the U.S.," Mr. Taylor added.

The sale is anticipated to reduce the Trust's balance sheet
gearing by approximately 1% to 35%.

The Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific reported on June 17,
2009, that Macquarie Office Trust and its joint venture partner
Maguire Properties Inc have entered into negotiations with the
loan administrator in relation to certain events of default under
the Loan Agreement at Quintana Campus (Quintana) in Irvine,
California.  Macquarie Office Trust has an 80 percent interest in
the 414,595 sqft property.

Macquarie Office recalled that in December 2008, the Receiver for
Quintana's primary tenant, Washington Mutual Bank (WAMU), elected
to relinquish the majority of its Quintana lease effective
March 2009 without being obliged to pay any compensation, as
permitted under US law.

The unexpected relinquishment of the leases reduced the occupancy
of Quintana by approximately 250,000 sqft to 40 percent effective
March 2009, resulting in a significant reduction in the cash flows
for the property and a weighted average lease expiry of 2.3 years.

The property has a CMBS loan of US$106 million (Trust share
US$84.8 million), due to mature in December 2011.  The loan is not
cross-collateralized or cross-defaulted with any other debt held
by Macquarie Office Trust or Maguire Properties, Inc.

AMERICAN WENSHEN: Auditor Raises Going Concern Doubt
----------------------------------------------------
Kabani & Company, Inc.'s audit report of American Wenshen Steel
Group, Inc. and subsidiaries' consolidated financial statements as
of and for the years ended September 30, 2009, and 2008, contained
an explanatory paragraph which states that the Company's
significant operating losses and insufficient capital raise
substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going
concern.

The Company reported a net loss of $1,673,447 on net sales of
$264,924 for the year ended September 30, 2009, and a net loss of
$3,476,522 on net sales of $2,253,816 for the year ended
September 30, 2008.

The Company discloses that as a result of the global recession,
construction activities in China have diminished, and so demand
for the Company's products waned.  In addition the Company says it
has negative working capital, which prevents it from financing
large orders for its products.  As a result, during the year ended
September 30, 2009, the Company realized only $264,924 in revenue,
an 88% reduction from the prior fiscal year.

                          Balance Sheet

At September 30, 2009, the Company's consolidated balance sheets
showed $1,445,574 in total assets and $1,467,126 in total current
liabilities, resulting in a $21,552 shareholders' deficit.

SOLAR ENERTECH: Auditors Raise Going Concern Doubt
--------------------------------------------------
Shanghai-based Ernst & Young Hua Ming's audit report of Solar
EnerTech Corp.'s consolidate financial statements as of and for
the years ended September 30, 2009, and 2008, contained an
explanatory paragraph which states that the Company's recurring
losses from operations raise substantial doubt about the Company's
ability to continue as a going concern.

In a regulatory filing Tuesday, the Company disclosed financial
results for the fiscal fourth quarter and fiscal year ended
September 30, 2009.

              Fourth Quarter 2009 Financial Results

In the 2009 fourth quarter, total module shipments increased 128%
compared to the fourth quarter of the prior year period.  Revenue
increased 22% to $13.2 million compared to $10.8 million in the
fourth quarter of the prior year period.

The fourth quarter 2009 gross profit increased to $2.1 million
compared to a gross loss of $2.6 million in the fourth quarter in
the prior year period.

Total operating expenses for the fiscal 2009 fourth quarter were
$1.4 million, or 11% of total net sales, which included a
$1.1 million non-cash stock compensation credit related to the
restructuring of the management team.  Excluding these non-cash
items, the operating expense for the fiscal 2009 fourth quarter
was $2.5 million, or 19% of total net sales.  Total operating
expense for the fiscal 2008 fourth quarter was $4.1 million, or
38% of total sales, which included  $800,000 of non-cash stock
compensation charges related to the hiring and retention of key
executives and $200,000 of non-cash charges for loss on debt
extinguishment.  Excluding these non-cash charges, the operating
expenses for the fiscal 2008 fourth quarter were $3.1 million, or
29% of total net sales.

Net income for the fourth quarter of fiscal 2009 was $1.9 million,
or $0.02 per basic share or $0.02 per diluted share after
excluding anti-dilution securities in the fourth quarter of fiscal
2009 compared to a net loss of $2.8 million, or negative $0.03 per
basic and diluted shares in the same period in fiscal 2008.  In
the fourth quarter of fiscal 2009, the Company recorded a non-cash
gain totaling $3.2 million associated with a change in the fair
market value of warrant liability and a change in the fair market
value of compound embedded derivative liability compared to a
total non-cash gain of $4.4 million for these two same items in
the fourth quarter of fiscal 2008.  Excluding non-cash items, on a
non-GAAP basis, the fourth quarter 2009 net loss was $1.3 million
compared to a net loss of $7.2 million in the prior year period.
Both the compound embedded derivative and warrant liabilities were
recorded in conjunction with the convertible notes transaction
entered into by the Company in March 2007.

Mr. Leo Young, Chief Executive Officer of Solar EnerTech
commented, "We are pleased to report solid fourth quarter results
in what was a transitional year for our business.  We made
strategic adjustments to cut costs and maintained our focus on
developing superior products to advance the SolarE brand name into
the marketplace.  From a technological standpoint, we made
excellent progress increasing the efficiency of our solar cells
that resulted in higher wattage output panels which creates more
value to our customers and further reduces our production costs.
These efforts resulted in the successful securing orders from new
customers as well as receiving follow-on orders from existing
customers.  We were delighted to have achieved positive net income
of $1.9 million and gross margin performance of 16% in our fiscal
2009 fourth quarter compared to a net loss of $2.8 million and
negative 24% gross margin in the previous year period.

We continue to make efforts to enhance our sales opportunity on a
global scale.  During our fiscal fourth quarter, we made our debut
in the U.S. market through our participation in the InterSolar
North America Exhibition and Conference.  This event allowed us to
showcase our products and value-added services to all relevant
U.S.-based companies in the solar industry. While approximately
90% of our products are shipped to Europe and Australia, we
believe the U.S. market will still play a very important role for
our company in the future."

                  Fiscal 2009 Financial Results

For the fiscal year ended September 30, 2009, Solar EnerTech
reported total revenue of $32.8 million, compared to $29.4 million
in fiscal 2008.  This represents a 12% growth from fiscal 2008.
The increase in revenue resulted from increases in solar module
shipments from 6.67 MW in fiscal year 2008 to 10.50MW in fiscal
year 2009, partially offset by a 25% decrease in average selling
prices from $4.10 per watt in fiscal year 2008 to $3.07 per watt
in fiscal year 2009.

The Company incurred a negative gross margin of $1.0 million in
fiscal 2009 compared to negative $3.7 million in fiscal 2008.  The
improvement in fiscal 2009 gross margin compared to fiscal 2008
was due to lower raw material prices, specifically silicon wafer
prices which offset the decrease in module sales prices.  Silicon
wafer prices decreased approximately 65% from RMB 46/piece during
fiscal year 2008 to RMB16/piece during fiscal year 2009, as
compared to module sales prices that decreased approximately 41%
from EUR2.2/watt during fiscal year 2008 to EUR1.3/watt during
fiscal year 2009.

Total operating expense for fiscal 2009 was $11.4 million compared
to $16.7 million in the prior year.  In fiscal 2009, the Company
recorded $3.2 million of non-cash stock compensation charge,
$1.0 million of non-cash impairment loss on property and
equipment, and $500,000 of non-cash loss on debt extinguishment.
Excluding these non-cash charges of $4.7 million, total operating
expense for the 2009 fiscal year was $6.7 million, or 20% of total
sales.  In fiscal 2008, the Company recorded $5.6 million of non-
cash stock compensation charge and $4.2 million of non-cash loss
on debt extinguishment.  Excluding these non-cash charges of
$9.8 million, total operating expense for the 2008 fiscal year was
$6.9 million, or 23% of total sales.

In fiscal 2009, the Company recorded a net loss of $14.2 million
compared to net income of $5.5 million in fiscal 2008.  The
Company's fiscal 2009 net loss included an $800,000 non-cash gain
associated with a change in the fair market value of compound
embedded derivative liability and a $1.3 million gain associated
with a change in the fair market value of warrant liability.  Both
the compound embedded derivative and warrant liabilities were
recorded in conjunction with the convertible notes transaction
entered into by the Company in March 2007.  Excluding these non-
cash gains of $2.1 million, on a non-GAAP basis, the Company had a
net loss of $16.3 million in fiscal 2009.  Included in the fiscal
2008 net income of $5.5 million was a $27.8 million gain on
issuance of convertible notes.  Excluding this non-cash charge of
$27.8 million, the Company had a net loss of $22.3 million, on a
non-GAAP basis. The Company had a loss of $0.16 per diluted share
in fiscal 2009 compared to a loss of $0.18 per diluted share,
after excluding for anti-dilution securities in fiscal 2008.

As of September 30, 2009, the Company had $1.7 million in cash,
$7.4 million of accounts receivables, $800,000 of prepayment
primarily for purchase of raw materials, $4.0 million of
inventories on hand, $1.3 million of deferred financing cost
associated to the convertible notes and $700,000 of VAT and other
receivables. A dditionally, as of September 30, 2009, the Company
had $6.9 million of accounts payable, customer advance payment and
accrued liabilities, $5.6 million of accrued liability due to
related party, $200,000 of derivative liabilities and
$11.6 million in principal of convertible notes outstanding, which
are recorded at carrying value at $3.1 million.

On January 7, 2010, the Company entered into a Series A Notes and
Series B Notes Conversion Agreement with the holders holding over
75% of the outstanding principal amounts owed under the Notes to
modify the terms of the Notes.  Pursuant to the terms of the
Conversion Agreement, the Notes will be automatically converted
into shares of the Company's common stock at a conversion price of
$0.15 per share and be amended to eliminate the maximum ownership
percentage restriction prior to such conversion.

In addition, the Company and the holders of over 50% of each of
the outstanding Series A, Series B and Series C Warrants
(collectively the "PIPE Warrants") have agreed to enter into an
Amendment to the Series A, B and C Warrants upon the closing of
the transactions contemplated in the Conversion Agreement.
Pursuant to the terms of the Warrant Amendment, the PIPE Warrants
shall be amended to reduce their exercise prices from $1.21, $0.90
and $1.00, respectively, to $0.15.  The PIPE Warrants shall also
be amended to (a) waive the anti-dilution provisions of the PIPE
Warrants that would increase the number of shares issuable
pursuant to the PIPE Warrants in inverse proportion to the
reduction in the exercise price, (b) waive all anti-dilution
protections as to future transactions and (c) eliminate maximum
ownership percentage restrictions.

Pursuant to the Conversion Agreement, after the closing of the
transactions contemplated by it, the Company shall issue to its
employees additional options to purchase shares of the Company's
common stock equal to approximately 30% of each employee's pre-
closing option holdings.  The Company says that this is to provide
for additional equity incentives to the Company's employees in
order to account for the dilution from the conversion of the Notes
and re-pricing of the PIPE Warrants.  These additional options
shall be priced at $0.15 per share.

                          Balance Sheet

At September 30, 2009, the Company's consolidated balance sheets
showed total assets of $27.5 million, to liabilities of
$17.9 million, and total stockholders' equity of $9.6 million.

University to develop higher efficiency cells and to put the
results of that research to use in its manufacturing processes.
Led by one of the industry's top scientists, the Company expects
its R&D program to help bring Solar EnerTech to the forefront of
advanced solar technology research and production.

AIR INDIA: NACIL to Shift Alliance Air Unit into Cargo Airline
--------------------------------------------------------------
The National Aviation Company Ltd. has been asked to come up with
a strategy to convert Alliance Air, a wholly-owned subsidiary of
Air India, into a cargo airline by the end of February, Business
Standard reports citing a source at Civil Aviation Ministry.

According to the report, the assets of Alliance Air are expected
to be transferred to the newly formed company, Air Alliance
Services, a subsidiary of AI and one of its strategic business
units.

The move comes after Civil Aviation Minister Praful Patel, in a
review meeting last week, directed the board of the airline to
prepare a plan in this regard, the Standard says.

Business Standard says the civil aviation ministry has also
directed AI to increase the utilization of the Airbus 320
aircraft.  Among other things, it was decided that Air India
Express will operate as a different entity.

According to the Standard, AI is also setting up two new
companies: Air India Engineering Services Ltd and Air India-
Singapore Airport Transport services.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific on
June 10, 2009, the National Aviation Company of India Ltd., the
holding company for the carrier, was seeking INR14,000 crore in
equity infusion, soft loans and grants.

The TCR-AP, citing the Hindustan Times, reported on June 19, 2009,
that Air India has been bleeding due to excess capacity, lower
yield, a drop in passenger numbers, an increase in fuel prices and
the effects of the global slowdown.  Air India's losses have
almost doubled to over INR4,000 crore in 2008-09 compared to
INR2,226 crore in 2007-08), according to the Hindustan Times.

In December, the Air India board decided to initiate a series of
major steps to cut costs and enhance savings.  The carrier is
focusing on cutting costs by INR1,500 crore and increasing
revenues by INR1,200 crore as per its turnaround plan, according
to the Business Standard.

The airline's turnaround plan has been broadly divided into 0-9
months, 9-18 months and 18-36 months and has been segregated under
operational efficiency, product improvement, organization building
and financial restructuring, the Business Standard said.

                          About Air India

throughout India and to more than 40 destinations throughout the
world.  Affiliate Air India Express operates as a low-fare
carrier, mainly between India and destinations in the Middle East,
and Air India Cargo provides freight transportation.  The
government of India has merged Air India with another state-
controlled carrier, Indian Airlines, which has focused on domestic
routes.  The combined airline, part of a new holding company
called National Aviation Company of India, uses the Air India
brand.  The new Air India and its affiliates have a fleet of more
than 110 aircraft altogether.


AIR INDIA: Unlikely to Get INR800cr Bail Out from Gov't.
--------------------------------------------------------
Air India is unlikely to get more than INR800 crore in government
bailout money in the current fiscal ending March 31, livemint.com
reports citing two officials.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific on
Nov. 13, 2009, The Times of India said the government agreed to
infuse INR2,000 crore in Air India till March 2010, in a phase-
wise manner of INR400 crore per month, subject to the airline cuts
costs and increases revenue.

The Pranab Mukherjee-headed Group of Ministers (GoM) decided to do
a monthly review of AI's performance before giving the next
tranche of INR400 crore, the Times said.

The government has approved giving Air India INR800 crore after
reviewing its performance for November and December, and a final
clearance from the finance ministry is expected by the end of
January, livemint.com relates.

According to livemint.com, the two officials said the carrier is
not likely to receive any more funds until the Union government
presents its budget for 2010-11.

The money will largely go towards paying off loans taken to
purchase aircraft, one of the officials told livemint.com.

Meanwhile, livemint.com says, Air India has also cleared a
proposal to pay EUR5 million (INR32.5 crore) to Star Alliance.

An executive at the firm told livemint.com that the carrier was
expected to join the global grouping of airlines by June but has
postponed it until December.

According to the report, the airline has to make this payment to
keep its membership request active despite the postponement.
Joining the alliance will enable Air India to offer in a single
ticket seamless connectivity to places where any of the group's
airlines operates flights, livemint.com states.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific on
June 10, 2009, the National Aviation Company of India Ltd., the

ARASU JEWELS: CRISIL Assigns 'BB-' on INR7.50 Mil. LT Loan
----------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its 'BB-/Stable' rating to Arasu Jewels
Trendy's bank facilities.

   Facilities                         Ratings
   ----------                         -------
   INR7.50 Million Long Term Loan     BB-/Stable (Assigned)
   INR67.50 Million Cash Credit       BB-/Stable (Assigned)

The rating reflects AJT's below-average financial risk profile,
small scale of operations, and exposure to intense competition.
These weaknesses are partially offset by the benefits that the
firm derives from its promoters' industry experience.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that AJT will maintain its market position over
the medium term on the back of promoters' industry experience.
The outlook may be revised to 'Positive' if the firm increases its
cash accruals and improves its overall financial risk profile.
Conversely, fresh large, debt-funded capital expenditure or
decline in profitability may drive a revision in the outlook to
'Negative'.

Set up in 2009 as a partnership firm by Mr. T. Murugan and family,
AJT is a gold jewellery retailer in Thanjavur (Tamil Nadu). The
promoters have another jewellery showroom in Thanjavur under an
associate firm Arasu Jewels. AJT started operations in June 2009.
The firm is likely to shift operations to a new showroom, of about
2000 square feet, located close to the existing premises, in
January 2010.


BRIGHT ENTERPRISES: CRISIL Reaffirms 'BB' Rating on INR5.0BB Loan
-----------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL's rating on the term loan facility of Bright Enterprises
Pvt Ltd continues to reflect the risks of time and cost overrun
faced by the company, as its Bengaluru project is in an early
stage of construction; the rating also reflects BEPL's limited
track record in project execution. These weaknesses are partially
offset by the project's low financial risk, with financial closure
having been attained.

   Facilities                             Ratings
   ----------                             -------
   INR5070 Million Term Loan Facility      BB/Stable (Reaffirmed)

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that BEPL will remain in project implementation
phase over the next three years.  The outlook may be revised to
'Positive' if early completion of BEPL's mixed-use development
project in Bengaluru leads to sooner than expected cash flows.
Conversely, the outlook may be revised to 'Negative' if delays or
cost overruns in the project impact the company's debt-servicing
ability or if it takes on more-than-expected debt to fund capital
expenditure or undertakes other real estate development projects.

                      About Bright Enterprises

BEPL is part of the Malhotra Book Depot group.  The group is one
of India's leading publishing houses.  It has diversified into
various industries, including paper manufacturing, hospitality,
real estate, and mall development; it is also into management
education, and runs a web-based online interactive academy. BEPL
owns and manages the Radisson MBD Hotel in Noida (Uttar Pradesh).
BEPL has entered into a franchise agreement with Radisson Hotels
International, a group company of Carlson Hotels worldwide.

BEPL plans to undertake a mixed-use development project in
Bengaluru.  The project comprises a 288-room, 5-star hotel and a
super luxury mall.  The project was earlier planned with a total
investment of around INR7.73 billion; however, the management has
revised the plan, and the total investment is now expected to be
INR4.61 billion.  The project is expected to be completed in 37
months.


CENTAUR PHARMACEUTICALS: CRISIL Cuts Ratings on LT Loan to 'BB+'
----------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has downgraded its ratings on the bank facilities of
Centaur Pharmaceuticals Pvt Ltd to 'BB+/Negative/P4+' from 'BBB-
/Negative/P3'.

   Facilities                        Ratings
   ----------                        -------
   INR280 Million Cash Credit        BB+/Negative (Downgraded from
                                                  'BBB-/Negative')

   INR420 Million Long-Term Loan     BB+/Negative (Downgraded from
                                                  'BBB-/Negative')
   INR35 Million Letter of Credit    P4+ (Downgraded from 'P3')
   INR20 Million Bank Guarantee      P4+ (Downgraded from 'P3')
   INR10 Million Proposed Short      P4+ (Downgraded from 'P3')
             Term Bank Facility

The rating action reflects deterioration in Centaur's financial
risk profile because of continued losses at the company's
Hingewadi (Pune) facility due to delays in obtaining regulatory
approvals.  The company's liquidity is also strained, as it posted
net losses in 2008-09 (refers to financial year, April 1 to March
31), and in the first half of 2009-10.  The downgrade also
reflects CRISIL's belief that Centaur's expected cash accruals for
2009-10 will be inadequate to meet the company's debt obligations
maturing during that period, and therefore, the company will
resort to refinancing its debt.  Also, continued debt-funded
capital expenditure (capex) is expected to add to the company's
overall debt levels.

Centaur's revenues in the first half of 2009-10, from its facility
in Hingewadi were inadequate to cover its fixed costs. The
company's operating margins continue to remain low at 3.9 per cent
in the six months through September 2009.  The operating margins
had slipped to 5.5 per cent in 2008-09 from 8.8 per cent in 2007-
08 due to high fixed costs at the Hingewadi facility. It reported
a net loss of 5.1 per cent, in the first half of 2009-10. The
gearing is estimated to have deteriorated to 1.1 times as on
September 30, 2009, from 0.83 times as on March 31, 2009, because
of the larger-than-expected debt-funded capex at all the
facilities of the company.

These weaknesses are partially offset by the benefits that Centaur
derives from its established brands in the domestic formulations
segment, and strong presence in the psychotropic active
pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) segment.

Outlook: Negative

CRISIL expects the strain in Centaur's financial risk profile,
especially profitability, to continue over the medium term, given
the high funding requirement of the Pune facility. The ratings
could be downgraded in case of further delays in the ramp-up of
operations in Pune. Conversely, the outlook could be revised to
'Stable' if the Pune operations achieve break-even in the near
term, and if the company reports a significant and sustainable
improvement in profitability in the following months.

                   About Centaur Pharmaceuticals

Centaur was promoted by Mr. S D Sawant, Mr. S K Ranganekar, and
Mr. Padgaonkar, in 1987.  The promoters set up Centaur
Laboratories in 1978, Centaur Chemicals Pvt Ltd in 1988, and
Centaur Drug House Pvt Ltd in 1998.  By 2007-08, the three
companies were merged into Centaur.  The company manufactures
formulations and APIs, and offers contract manufacturing and
contract research outsourcing services.  It has two plants in Goa,
and one each in Pune and Ambernath, both in Maharashtra.  For
2008-09, Centaur reported a net loss of INR86 million on net sales
of INR1306 million, against a profit after tax of INR1.1 million
on net sales of INR1155 million for the previous year.


GOPALA POLYPLAST: Delay in Loan Repayment Cues CRISIL Junk Ratings
------------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its ratings of 'D/P5' to Gopala Polyplast
Ltd's bank facilities.  The ratings reflect delay by GPL in
repayment of term loan obligations, owing to weak liquidity.

   Facilities                            Ratings
   ----------                            -------
   INR80.0 Million Cash Credit Limit     D (Assigned)
   INR92.0 Million Working Capital       D (Assigned)
                   Demand Loan
   INR10.0 Million Term Loan             D (Assigned)
   INR5.5 Million Bank Guarantee         P5 (Assigned)

Incorporated in 1984 as a private limited company, GPL converted
to a public limited company in 1992-93 (refers to financial year,
April 1 to March 31), and was listed on the Bombay Stock Exchange
(BSE).  The company manufactures polypropylene woven sacks, which
are used to package cement.  The company also manufactures woven
labels, which are used in garment manufacturing.  It has capacity
to manufacture 12,500 tonnes of woven sacks per annum at its
manufacturing facilities at Gandhinagar (Gujarat), and Silvassa
(Dadar and Nagar Haveli). GPL reported net loss of INR67.4 million
on net sales of INR1243.8 million for 2008-09 as against a net
loss of INR41.8 million on net sales of INR1318 million for
2007-08.


MANPHO EXPORTS: CRISIL Assigns Junk Ratings on Various Bank Debts
-----------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its ratings of 'D/P5' to Manpho Exports' bank
facilities.  The ratings reflect delay by Manpho in repayment of
term loan obligations owing to weak liquidity.

   Facilities                           Ratings
   ----------                           -------
   INR43.0 Million Cash Credit          D (Assigned)
   INR17.0 Million Rupee Term Loan      D (Assigned)
   INR5.0 Million Letter of Credit      P5 (Assigned)

Set up in 1989 as a partnership firm by Mr. Lalith Parekh, Manpho
manufactures silk home furnishing products and made-ups, such as
curtains, quilts, cushion covers and bed sheets.  The firm also
trades in cotton yarn and polyester fabrics.  Manpho's products
are manufactured at its facility in Bangalore, which has 10
imported and 12 Indian looms, and employs around 250 people.
Manpho exports primarily to retailers in UK, Europe and the
Middle-East.

Manpho reported a profit after tax (PAT) of around INR7.0 million
on net sales of around INR125 million for 2008-09 (refers to
financial year, April 1 to March 31), as against a net loss of
INR10.8 million on net sales of INR130.4 million for 2007-08.


MITTAPALLI AGRO: CRISIL Reaffirms 'B' Rating on Cash Credit
-----------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL's ratings on the bank loan facilities of Mittapalli Agro
Products Pvt Ltd continue to reflect MAPL's constrained financial
risk profile marked by high gearing and weak debt protection
measures, and its working-capital-intensive operations. These
weaknesses are partially offset by MAPL's established position in
the tobacco industry.

   Facilities                       Ratings
   ----------                       -------
   INR20 Million Cash Credit        B/Stable (Reaffirmed)
   INR70 Million Packing Credit     P4 (Reaffirmed)

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that MAPL will maintain its operating margin and
revenue growth over the medium term, on the back of stable demand
for its products in the export market.  The outlook may be revised
to 'Positive' if MAPL's financial risk profile improves on account
of reduction in gearing or higher-than-expected profitability.
Conversely, the outlook may be revised to 'Negative' if the
company's financial risk profile deteriorates because of
significant increase in debt levels or substantial decline in
profitability.

                       About Mittapalli Agro

Mittapalli Agro Products Pvt Ltd was formed in 2005 by Mr.
Mittapalli Ramesh Babu in Guntur (Andhra Pradesh).  The company
processes tobacco leaves for sale in the domestic and export
markets. Most of MAPL's customers are cigar and cigarette
manufacturers.

MAPL reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR1.5 million on net
sales of INR441 million in 2008-09 (refers to financial year,
April 1 to March 31), against a PAT of INR0.4 million on net sales
of INR220 million for 2007-08.


PARTH CHEM: CRISIL Rates INR30 Million Cash Credit at 'B-'
----------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its 'B-/Negative/P4' ratings to the bank
facilities of Parth Chem Impex Pvt Ltd.

   Facilities                             Ratings
   ----------                             -------
   INR30.0 Million Cash Credit            B-/Negative (Assigned)
   INR30.0 Million Bill Discounting       P4 (Assigned)
   INR60.0 Million Letter of Credit       P4 (Assigned)

The ratings reflect Parth Chem's weak financial risk profile
marked by small net worth and high gearing, and exposure to risks
related to raw material price volatility and debtor default.
These rating weaknesses are partially offset by Parth Chem's long
track record in the chemicals trading business, and its healthy
relationship with its key supplier, the Blue Sword Chemical group,
China, for procurement of sodium tripolyphosphate (STPP).

Outlook: Negative

CRISIL believes that Parth Chem's already weak financial risk
profile will deteriorate over the medium term as the company's
liquidity is expected to weaken.  The rating may be downgraded in
case of more-than-expected deterioration in Parth Chem's financial
risk profile, because of decline in profitability or more-than-
expected weakening in liquidity.  Conversely, the outlook may be
revised to 'Stable' if Parth Chem's financial risk profile
improves significantly, because of fresh equity infusions or
sustained improvement in profitability.

                         About Parth Chem

Set up in 1988 by Mr. Mehul Bhuta as a proprietary concern, Parth
Chem was incorporated as a private limited company in February
2005.  The company trades in chemicals such as STPP, citric acid,
soda ash, sodium hydrosulphate, hydrogen peroxide, nitric acid,
phenol, and melamine.  It imports these chemicals from China,
Taiwan, Korea, Ukraine, Iran, and Turkey.

Parth Chem reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR4.5 million on
net sales of INR683.0 million for 2008-09 (refers to financial
year, April 1 to March 31), against a PAT of INR3.0 million on net
sales of INR603.8 million for 2007-08.


POWER MAX: CRISIL Reaffirms 'BB+' Ratings on INR10 Mil. Term Loan
-----------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL's ratings on the bank facilities of Power Max (India) Pvt
Ltd continue to reflect Power Max's working capital intensive
operations, its small scale of operations in the engineering
services industry, and its low net worth.  These weaknesses are
partially offset by the benefits that Power Max derives from the
experience of its promoters, and its strong customer profile.

   INR10 Million Letter of Credit   P4+ (Reaffirmed)
   INR80 Million Bank Guarantee     P4+ (Reaffirmed)

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that Power Max will maintain a stable credit risk
profile on the back of its established relationships with its
clients.  The outlook may be revised to 'Positive' if the company
reports significant improvement in revenues, operating margin, and
capital structure. Conversely, the outlook may be revised to
'Negative' if the company undertakes large debt-funded capital
expenditure programs leading to deterioration in capital
structure.

Power Max, formed in 1977 by Mr. Dilip Kumar Bose, provides
turnkey services in the engineering industry, in segments such as
mechanical, engineering, procurement & construction, design and
engineering, civil, structural and architectural, electrical, and
instrumentation, and infrastructure development.

Power Max reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR12.4 million on
net sales of INR474.6 million for 2008-09 (refers to financial
year, April 1 to March 31), against a PAT of INR7.9 million on net

RAIPUR POWER: CRISIL Rates INR250 Million Term Loan at 'B+'
-----------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its 'B+/Stable' rating to the term loan
facility of Raipur Power and Steel Ltd.

   Facilities                        Ratings
   ----------                        -------
   INR250 Million Term Loan          B+/Stable (Assigned)

The rating reflects RPSL's exposure to project implementation
risks, its small scale of operations and exposure to intense
competition in the sponge iron industry, and susceptibility to
volatility in raw material prices.  These rating weaknesses are
partially offset by RPSL's healthy raw material sourcing
capability, and its promoters' experience in the steel industry.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that RPSL will continue to face pressures because
of its exposure to project implementation risks and its large
debt-funded capital expenditure plans, over the medium term.
Timely completion of capacity additions and better margins may
lead to a revision in the outlook to 'Positive'.  Conversely, the
outlook may be revised to 'Negative' in case of any delay in
project implementation or if the company reports lower-than-
expected profitability.

                        About Raipur Power

Raipur Power and Steel Ltd was promoted in October 2007 by Mr.
Narsi Dass Garg and Mr. Balraj Garg, and is a closely held
company.  The company manufactures sponge iron, and has a
production capacity of 60,000 tonnes per annum (tpa).  RPSL
started commercial operations in April 2009 at Borai Industrial
Growth Centre Village, Durg, Chhattisgarh. The company plans to
set up a 30,000-tpa sponge iron plant and a 12-megawatt captive
power plant in FY2010-11.


RAITANI ENGINEERING: CRISIL Reaffirms 'BB' Rating on Bank Debts
---------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL's ratings on the bank facilities of Raitani Engineering
Works Pvt Ltd continue to reflect REWPL's large working capital
requirements, and exposure to risks related to customer and
geographic concentration in revenue profile.  These rating
weaknesses are mitigated by REWPL's healthy order book, and
moderate financial risk profile, marked by average gearing and
debt protection metrics.

   ----------                        -------
   INR100 Million Cash Credit        BB/Stable (Reaffirmed)
   INR315 Million Bank Guarantee     P4+ (Reaffirmed)

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that REWPL will continue benefit from the growth
prospects in the civil construction industry.  The outlook may be
revised to 'Positive' if the company strengthens its business risk
profile by diversifying its revenue base, and maintains its
operating margin at current level.  Conversely, the outlook may be
revised to 'Negative' if additional debt-funded capital
expenditure (capex) or acquisition programs constrain the
company's financial risk profile.

                     About Raitani Engineering

Set up in 1974, Raitani Engineering Works Pvt Ltd (formerly,
Raitani Engineering Works) was converted into a partnership firm

SESA INTERNATIONAL: CRISIL Reaffirms 'BB' on INR350MM Cash Credit
-----------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL's ratings on the bank facilities of Sesa International Ltd
continue to reflect Sesa's weak debt protection measures, and
inadequate risk management policies.  These weaknesses are
partially offset by Sesa's diversified product portfolio,
established relationships with suppliers and customers, and its
promoters' industry experience.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that Sesa will continue to benefit from its
relationships with its customers and suppliers. The outlook may be
revised to 'Positive' if the company implements adequately strong
risk management policies, and if there is a considerable
improvement in its profitability and debt protection measures.
Conversely, the outlook may be revised to 'Negative' if Sesa
contracts more-than-expected debt, or if its inventory levels
increase significantly.

                      About Sesa International

TATA STEEL: Won't Shut Down Corus TCP Plant; About 120 Jobs Saved
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Business Standard reports that Tata Steel's European arm Corus has
decided not to shut down one of the mills at its Teesside Cast
Products plant, saving as many as 120 jobs from getting slashed.

"Corus confirmed its intention to continue operating South Bank
Coke Ovens (a TCP mill) following the improvement in market
conditions for coke.  As a result of this decision about 120
additional jobs will be retained," the company said in an e-mailed
statement from London, according to the report.

The report recalls Corus last year decided to partially shut down
some of the TCP mills in U.K., threatening to cut 1,700 jobs.

The decision to continue operations of South Bank Coke Ovens was
taken after a recent meeting of the Trade Union Task Force, formed
to look into the issue of closure of the mills, the report
relates.

Headquartered in Mumbai, India, Tata Steel Limited --
http://www.tatasteel.com/-- is a diversified steel producer.  It
has operations in 24 countries and commercial presence in over 50
countries.  Its operations predominantly relate to manufacture of
steel and ferro alloys and minerals business. Other business
segments comprises of tubes and bearings.  On April 2, 2007, Tata
Steel UK Limited (TSUK), a subsidiary of Tulip UK Holding No.1,
which in turn is a subsidiary of Tata Steel completed the
acquisition of Corus Group plc.  Tata Metaliks Limited, which is
engaged in the business of manufacturing and selling pig iron,
became a subsidiary of the Company with effect from February 1,
2008.  In September 2008, the Company acquired a 7.3% interest in
Riversdale Mining Ltd.

                          *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Asia on June 10,
2009, Moody's Investors Service downgraded the corporate family
rating of Tata Steel Ltd to Ba3 from Ba2.  Moody's said the rating
outlook is stable.


UNIVERSAL POWER: CRISIL Reaffirms 'BB' Ratings on Various Debts
---------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has reaffirmed its ratings of 'BB/Negative/P4+' on the bank
facilities of Universal Power Transformer Pvt Ltd, which is part
of the UPT group.

   Facilities                        Ratings
   ----------                        -------
   INR150.0 Million Cash Credit      BB/Negative (Reaffirmed)
   INR147.5 Million Term Loan        BB/Negative (Reaffirmed)

            Bank Loan Facility

   INR300.0 Million Letter of        P4+ (Reaffirmed)
        Credit/Bank Guarantee

  INR62.5 Million Proposed Short     P4+ (Reaffirmed)
        Term Bank Loan Facility

The ratings continue to reflect the UPT group's below-average
financial risk profile, constrained by stressed liquidity, and
exposure to risks relating to volatility in raw material prices,
and to the working-capital-intensive nature, and small scale of
its operations in the power transformers industry.  These rating
weaknesses are partially offset by the benefits that the UPT group
derives from the promoters' experience in the transformers
industry.

For arriving at its ratings, CRISIL has combined the business and
financial risk profiles of UPT and UPT Fabrication Pvt Ltd.  This
is because UPT and UPTF, together referred to as the UPT group,
have common promoters, operational synergies, and fungible funds,
and are in the same line of business.

Outlook: Negative

CRISIL expects the UPT group's liquidity to remain constrained
over the near to medium term because of delayed realizations from
receivables, and deferred offtake on orders by key customers.
Although the group's liquidity has improved owing to restructuring
of bank facilities, healthy accruals and improvement in
realization of receivables will remain key rating sensitivity
factors over the near term.  The ratings may be downgraded if the
group's liquidity deteriorates further, if its order book reduces,
or in case of unexpected dip in its margins.  Conversely, the
outlook may be revised to 'Stable' if UPT's receivables and
inventory positions improve, resulting in comfortable liquidity,
supported by sustainable growth in operating revenues and margins,
and timely execution of orders.

                        About Magnum Electric

Magnum Electric Machine Manufacturers Pvt Ltd (Magnum), which was
incorporated in January 2002, acquired Universal Transformers, a
proprietorship business formed in 1978, in June 2003.  UT was

sales of INR1.15 billion for 2007-08.


VEER OVERSEAS: CRISIL Lifts Ratings on INR27MM Term Loans to 'B+'
-----------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has upgraded its rating on the long-term bank facilities of
Veer Overseas Ltd (VOL), which is part of the Veer group, to
'B+/Stable' from 'B/Stable'.

   Facilities                        Ratings
   ----------                        -------
   INR50 Million Cash Credit         B+/Stable (Upgraded from
                                                'B/Stable')

   INR150 Million Export Bill        P4 (Reaffirmed)
                 Discounting
   *Including a proposed limit of INR170 million.

The upgrade reflects the expected improvement in the Veer group's
gearing to around 6 times as on March 31, 2010, from the high
level of 10.7 times as on March 31, 2008, on account of increase
in net worth.  The Veer group's net worth is expected to improve
to INR210 million as on March 31, 2010, from INR103 million as on
March 31, 2008, on account of stable profitability and healthy
sales growth during the period. The rating on VOL's short-term
bank facilities has been reaffirmed at 'P4'.

The ratings reflect the Veer group's weak financial risk profile
because of its working capital-intensive operations, limited size,
and exposure to risks relating to revenue concentration, changes
in government policies, and fluctuations in raw material prices
and climatic conditions. The impact of these weaknesses is
mitigated by the promoters' experience in the rice industry and
the healthy growth prospects for the industry.

For arriving at the ratings, CRISIL has combined the business and
financial risk profiles of VOL and Veer Oil & General Mills
(VOGM), together referred to as the Veer group; this is because
VOL and VOGM have strong operating and financial linkages, and are
under a common management.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that the Veer group's financial risk profile will
remain weak over the medium term because of the working-capital-
intensive nature of the rice industry.  The outlook may be revised
to 'Positive' if the Veer group reports higher-than-expected
profitability and accruals, resulting in improvement in its net
worth and capital structure.  Conversely, the outlook may be
revised to 'Negative' if the group's capital structure
deteriorates or if it reports lower-than-expected profitability.

                          About the Group

Set up in 1979 as a partnership firm, VOL was converted to a
public limited company in 1994.  VOL mills and processes basmati
rice.  The company primarily caters to the export market; it
mainly exports par-boiled rice, which has high demand in the
Middle East. VOL also sorts, and subsequently exports, unsorted
rice procured from smaller mills in its unit's vicinity.  Its
plant in Gharunda in Karnal (Haryana) has milling capacity of 10
tonnes per hour (tph) and sorting capacity of 20 tph. These
capacities are being increased to 16 tph and 24 tph, respectively.
VOGM has sorting capacity of 8 tph.

For 2008-09 (refers to financial year, April 1 to March 31), the
Veer group reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR61 million on
net sales of INR3588 million, against a PAT of INR21 million on
net sales of INR2305 million for the previous year.

VISHESH ENGINEERING: CRISIL Reaffirms 'BB' Rating on Cash Credit
----------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL's ratings on the bank facilities of Vishesh Engineering
Company continue to reflect VEC's large working capital
requirements, small scale of operations, low net worth and
customer concentration in revenue profile.  These weaknesses are
partially offset by the VEC's established position in the seismic
survey and seismic data acquisition services, healthy project-
execution skills, and healthy debt protection measures.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that VEC will maintain its financial and business
risk profiles on the back of its project execution skills.  The
outlook may be revised to 'Positive' if VEC substantially
increases its scale of operations and improves its financial risk
profile. Conversely, the outlook may be revised to 'Negative' if

VIVA BOOKS: Low Net Worth Prompts 'BB+' Rating on INR60MM Debts
---------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL's rating on the cash credit facility of Viva Books Pvt Ltd
(Viva) continues to reflect Viva's weak debt protection measures
owing to large working capital requirements, and the company's
small scale of operations and low net worth. These weaknesses are
partially offset by Viva's established market position supported
by tie-ups with reputed publishing houses, and its comfortable
financial flexibility.

   Facilities                             Ratings

   INR60.0 Million Cash Credit Limit      BB+/Stable (Reaffirmed)

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that Viva will continue to benefit from its market
position backed by established relationships with publishing
houses.  The outlook may be revised to 'Positive' in case of more-
than?expected increase in the company's cash accruals and
improvement in profitability, or if the unsecured loans from
promoters are converted into equity, resulting in significant
improvement in the company's capital structure.  Conversely, the
outlook may be revised to 'Negative' if Viva's profitability
deteriorates, or if it undertakes a larger-than-expected debt-
funded capital expenditure program, resulting in deterioration in
its financial risk profile.

CIKARANG LISTRINDO: Moody's Assigns 'Ba2' Corporate Family Rating
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has assigned a Ba2 corporate family
rating to PT Cikarang Listrindo.  At the same time, Moody's has
assigned a provisional (P)Ba2 rating to the senior secured notes
to be issued by Listrindo Capital B.V., and which will be
unconditionally and irrevocably guaranteed by Cikarang.  The
outlook on both ratings is stable.

Moody's expects to remove the (P)Ba2 rating for the senior secured
notes from its provisional status upon completion of the issuance.

The majority of the note proceeds will be used to repay existing
bank loans and the remainder to fund the balance of Cikarang's
capacity expansion program and for general corporate purposes.

"Cikarang's ratings reflect its exclusive IPP license for
providing electricity to a large and diversified base of
industrial estate customers, its offtake agreement with PLN
(Ba2/stable), as well as track records of solid demand growth and
payment records from the industrial estate customer base, even
during the Asian financial crisis in 1997 and the more recent
economic slowdown," says Jennifer Wong, Moody's lead analyst for
the company.

"The ratings also reflect the company's strong reliability, strong
operating performance, and its robust tariff structure -- which
allows for foreign exchange and natural gas cost pass-through --
and its strong management team," adds Ms. Wong.

"At the same time, the ratings are constrained by its offtake risk
exposure to PLN and a moderate degree of uncertainty regarding the
extent of demand for the additional capacity that will come from
its expansion program," says Ms. Wong.

"Furthermore, there is certain degree of execution risk associated
with the capacity expansion, even though Cikarang has a track
record in managing such expansion and the fact that the program is
generally on schedule and within budget," says Ms. Wong.  "In
addition, a lack of operational flexibility, given the company's
single location plant and relatively small capacity, is apparent."

Moody's also notes that -- post the note issue -- all of
Cikarang's debt will be in one bullet maturity, creating
refinancing risk that is unusual and which would represent a
weakness for the company.

Further, the future financial profile of the company is subject to
a degree of uncertainty, given the move from secured bank lending
and restrictive covenants to the more relaxed high-yield bond
covenants.

Moody's notes that the expansion plan will be completed in 2010,
and while such covenants do provide some restrictions, they do not
completely prevent further debt being raised, if Cikarang so
wishes.

Cikarang's average projected Cash Available for Debt Service
(CAFDS)/Mandatory Debt Service of around 3.0x and FFO/Debt of
around 20% are appropriate for the Ba2 rating, and in line with
Moody's Power Generation Projects methodology.

Moody's believes that Cikarang has a relatively predictable
business, and which has some similarities -- on a small scale --
to that of a utility, given the captive industrial user base.

The stable outlook reflects Moody's expectation that Cikarang will
continue to benefit from the strong demand from the industrial
estates.

Upward rating pressure will be limited in the near to medium term,
given the uncertainty over the offtake arrangement with PLN and
the execution risks associated with the capacity expansion.

But the rating will likely be upgraded in the longer term if
Cikarang concludes new offtake arrangements with PLN, and which
extend the term of the contract for existing capacity, as well as
taking part of the capacity currently being built.  In addition,
it will be important that Cikarang maintains its current strong
operational and financial profile.

Key metrics that Moody's would look for in the case of a rating
upgrade include: RCF/Debt in the 15-20% range and Debt/EBITDA in
the 3-4 times range on a consistent basis.  Furthermore, an
upgrade in PLN's rating could also positively impact Cikarang's
rating, assuming new offtake arrangements are finalized.

On the other hand, negative rating pressure will emerge if
Cikarang (1) is unable to finalize the offtake arrangements with
PLN at a favorable tariff; (2) cannot execute its capacity
expansion on schedule and within budget; or (3) there is a
significant deterioration in Cikarang's operational and financial
profile.

In this context, financial metrics that would indicate downward
rating pressure include RCF/Debt falling below 10-15% and/or
Debt/EBITDA falling below 4.5 times.  A downgrade in PLN's rating
could also pressure the rating.

The last rating action on Cikarang was 4 February 2009 when
Moody's withdrew the Ba3 corporate family rating and the (P)Ba3
senior secured bond rating because of business reasons.

PT Cikarang Listrindo is the exclusive IPP supplier of electricity
to a wide range of mostly foreign-owned companies in five
industrial estates in the Cikarang area outside of Jakarta.  It
owns and operates a 518MW natural gas-fired combined cycle power
station, and distributes directly to the companies located on the
industrial estates.  Its current capacity expansion plan, upon
completion, will increase the company's installed generation
capacity to 646MW.  It also has an offtake agreement for part of
its power with PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara (Ba2/stable).
Cikarang is owned by 3 Indonesian families.


CIKARANG LISTRINDO: S&P Assigns 'BB-' Corporate Credit Ratings
--------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its 'BB-' corporate
credit ratings on Indonesia's PT Cikarang Listrindo, an Indonesian
natural gas-fired electricity power producer.  The outlook is
stable.

At the same time, Standard & Poor's assigned its 'BB-' rating on
the senior secured notes to be issued by Listrindo Capital B.V., a
wholly owned special-purpose subsidiary incorporated in The
Netherlands, established solely for issuing this debt instrument.

The rating on Cikarang reflects project completion risk, a single
site concentration, counterparty risk, and weak capital structure.
These risks are partially offset by the company's diverse customer
base, high availability factor, and regulatory protection.

The notes' proceeds are to be contributed to another special-
purpose subsidiary, Signal Capital B.V., which will lend the full
amount to Cikarang.

Cikarang will irrevocably and unconditionally guarantee Listrindo
Capital's notes.  These secured notes will constitute the
company's only debt facility.  The ratings are subject to final
documentation.

The proceeds from the notes are intended primarily for (1)
refinancing the existing debt, (2) financing the balance of
planned capital expenditure requirements under its capacity
expansion program, and (3) for general corporate purposes.

"Cikarang operates one natural gas-based power plant and any
material disruption in the plant could have a significant impact
on the company's cash flows," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst Manuel Guerena.  "The single-site risk is partly mitigated
by the plant's diversified generating units and track record of
minimal operational disruptions since its initial operation."

Nevertheless, Cikarang has diverse customer base with 1,559
industrial customers (79% of Kilovolt-Ampere sales to foreign-
owned companies), spanning five industrial estates.  While there
are no take-or-pay contractual commitments with these clients,
Standard & Poor's believes reliability and acceptable tariffs
mitigate this risk.

In addition, Cikarang's average availability factor has been high
at more than 90% with low network losses of less than 1%.  These
customers should provide Cikarang with adequate debt service
coverage, in addition to PLN's take-or-pay monthly payments
(approximately US$4.6 million/month)--regardless of dispatch
levels and Cikarang subjected only to a fixed capacity factor of
72%.

Sales terms include full pass-through of gas costs, limiting
volatility risks, and payments are in Indonesian rupiah linked to
the U.S. dollar at the prevailing rate, thus reducing Cikarang's
foreign exchange exposure.  In addition, the power plant has an
exclusive independent power producer license that enables it to
generate and distribute energy to industrial customers within this
specific geographic zone.

BEST DENKI: JCR Downgrades Ratings on Senior Debts to 'BB'
----------------------------------------------------------
Japan Credit Ratings Agency, Ltd., has downgraded the rating on
senior debts and outstanding bonds of Best Denki Co., Ltd. from
BB+ to BB, respectively, revising the rating outlook from Negative
to Stable.

Senior debts: BB+/Negative

                     Issue
                     Amount    Issue Date  Due Date  Coupon Rating
                     ------    ----------  --------  ------ ------
euroyen convertible  JPY11.5BB 02/09/2004  02/09/2010  0%     BB
notes

Rating Rationale

Best Denki Co., Ltd., announced a downward revision of its
earnings forecasts for FY2009 ending February 28, 2010, and its
restructuring plan in association with its liquidation of its
subsidiary, Sakuraya Co., Ltd.  Although the rating outlook for
the Company has been "Negative," impact of the liquidation on its
financial structure is not incorporated in this "Negative"
outlook.  It is uncertain how much the Company can improve its
performance by restructuring.  Furthermore, it is also still
uncertain whether the Company can survive in the consumer
electronics retail store industry, given the sharp reductions in
its business size to be made.  Therefore, JCR downgraded the
ratings on the Company by one notch to "BB/Stable."


JAPAN AIRLINES: JCR Downgrades Ratings on Senior Debts to 'C'
-------------------------------------------------------------
Japan Credit Ratings Agency, Ltd., has downgraded the rating on
senior debts of Japan Airlines Corporation from CCC to C,
maintaining it on Credit Monitor with Negative direction (from
#CCC/Negative to #C/Negative).  JCR has similarly downgraded the
ratings on the outstanding bonds and shelf registration
(preliminary) from CCC to C, maintaining them on Credit Monitor
with Negative direction (from #CCC/Negative to #C/Negative).

Senior debts: #C/Negative

             Amount
  Issues     (Bln)   Issue Date  Due Date   Coupon  Rating
  ------    ------   ---------   --------   ------  ------
bonds no.1  JPY10    12/18/2003  12/18/2013 2.94%   #C/Negative
bonds no.3  JPY10    02/04/2004  02/04/2011 1.92%   #CNegative

   (bonds no.1 and no.3 are guaranteed by Japan Airlines
    International.)

Shelf Registration: preliminary #C/Negative
Maximum: JPY150 billion
Valid: two years effective from January 31, 2008

Rationale

JCR downgraded the ratings on Japan Airlines Corp., maintaining
them on Credit Monitor, on January 8, 2010, due to its worse
operating performance and the increasing chances of JAL's filing
for bankruptcy protection.  JCR considers that the chances of
filing for bankruptcy protection have increased more than before
in the process of determinations of specific support measures.
Thus, JCR downgraded the ratings on JAL to "C" and maintains them
on Credit Monitor.


JAPAN AIRLINES INT'L: JCR Cuts Ratings on Senior Debts to 'C'
-------------------------------------------------------------
Japan Credit Ratings Agency, Ltd., has downgraded the rating on
senior debts of Japan Airlines International from CCC to C,
maintaining it on Credit Monitor with Negative direction (from
#CCC/Negative to #C/Negative).

Japan Airlines International Co. is a core operating company of
JAL Group, generating the majority of the Group's cash flow on a
consolidated basis.  The all executive officers and directors of
the holding Company, Japan Airlines Corporation, concurrently
serve as executive officers and directors of the Company.  As the
Company's oneness to the Group is strong, its credit capacity is
considered equivalent to that of Japan Airlines Corporation.
Therefore, JCR downgraded the rating on the Company to "C" and
maintains it on Credit Monitor in the same way as JCR did for JAL.


JAPAN AIRLINES: Moody's Downgrades Long-Term Debt Rating to 'Ca'
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has downgraded the long-term debt rating
and issuer rating of Japan Airlines International Co., Ltd., to Ca
from Caa1.  The outlook is negative.

JALI is fully owned by Japan Airlines Corporation.

The rating action reflects the increasing likelihood that JAL,
which is undergoing business restructuring, will need to
reorganize its obligations in legal bankruptcy proceedings.
Moody's believes that if the company files legal proceedings, it
will show a greater likelihood of defaulting on its bonds in
addition to securing debt forgiveness from its relational banks.

Moody's is concerned over the airline's numerous challenges,
including continued stagnant operations, high leverage,
inefficient routes, and pension liabilities.

Since last year, JAL's restructuring plan has been discussed from
a variety of perspectives within the government and among its
relationship banks.  Previously, on October 29, 2009, JAL had
started negotiations with the Enterprise Turnaround Initiative
Corporation of Japan on restructuring and on November 13, 2009, it
had applied for a procedure known in Japan as the out-of-court
process for alternative dispute resolution.

However, to receive support for its restructuring from ETIC, far-
reaching reform in a more transparent manner is required.
Therefore, the possibility of legal proceedings is increasing.
Moody's continues to monitor for the expected new restructuring
plan.

Moody's last rating action with respect to JALI was taken on
November 16, 2009, when its ratings were continued to review for
further possible downgrade.

Headquartered in Tokyo, Japan Airlines International Co., Ltd., is
the country's largest airline, and is fully owned by Japan
Airlines Corporation.


JAPAN AIRLINES: S&P Downgrades Senior Unsec. Debt Rating to 'CC'
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered to 'CC' from 'CCC' its
long-term senior unsecured debt ratings on Japan Airlines Corp.
(SD/--/--) and Japan Airlines International Co. Ltd. (SD/--/--),
its wholly owned subsidiary.  At the same time, S&P changed to
negative from developing the CreditWatch placement of the debt
ratings on both companies.  The debt ratings on both companies
were placed on CreditWatch with negative implications on Sept. 18,
2009, and revised downward on Oct. 16 and Nov. 4.  On Nov. 13,
2009, the debt ratings were lowered again and this time placed on
CreditWatch with developing implications.  The placement on
CreditWatch with developing implications means that the rating
could be raised or lowered.  Standard & Poor's also affirmed at
'SD' the long-term corporate credit ratings on JAL and Japan
Airlines International.

S&P kept the long-term senior unsecured debt ratings on both
companies on CreditWatch with developing implications, reflecting
S&P's view that no corporate bonds were included in the list of
debt that was subject to the temporary suspension of payments in
the ongoing alternative dispute resolution procedures.
Furthermore, S&P viewed that there was a certain possibility that
JAL would turn its business around through informal workout
restructuring measures.  However, taking into consideration the
subsequently reported information regarding the support from the
Enterprise Turnaround Initiative Corporation of Japan, S&P now
believe that restructuring at JAL is highly likely to be
implemented through formal workout proceedings.  S&P may lower the
long-term senior unsecured rating on JAL and Japan Airlines
International to 'D' and the long-term corporate credit ratings on
the companies to 'D' from 'SD,' if JAL files for legal bankruptcy
proceedings.

JAPAN AIRLINES: To Get JPY600-Bln Bridge Loans Under Revival Plan
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Kiyotaka Matsuda and Chris Cooper at Bloomberg News reports that
Japan Airlines Corp. will receive JPY600 billion (US$6.6 billion)
in bridge loans from Enterprise Turnaround Initiative Corp. of
Japan and state-owned Development Bank of Japan under a proposed
turnaround plan.

Bloomberg, citing a person familiar with the matter, relates that
DBJ will also extend the final JPY145 billion of an existing
JPY200 billion credit line to JAL.  The lender and ETIC will
provide the planned bridging loans, the person said.

Meanwhile, Bloomberg News reports that Transport Minister Seiji
Maehara said JAL's turnaround plan will aim to allow the
government to recover financial support in the ?near future.?

?A certain amount of public funds will be needed,? Mr. Maehara
told Bloomberg in an interview in Tokyo Thursday.  ?I can?t
clearly say how much it will cost.? Mr. Maehara didn't give a time
frame for when the money may be repaid, Bloomberg says.

According to Bloomberg, Mr. Maehara said ETIC can buy a stake,
loan money or provide government guarantees if it helps the
carrier.  The turnaround body may make a decision on aid next
week, he said.

Japan Airlines Corporation -- http://www.jal.co.jp/-- is a Japan-
based holding company that is active in five business segments
through its 225 subsidiaries and 82 associated companies.  The Air
Transportation segment is engaged in the operation of passenger

The Others segment is involved in businesses related to hotels,
resorts, logistics, wholesale, retail, real estate, printing,

communication.  The Company has numerous global operating
locations.

JAL International Co. Ltd. is a wholly owned operating subsidiary
of Japan Airlines Corporation.

                           *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific on
December 4, 2009, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered to
'SD' (selective default) from 'CC' its long-term corporate credit
ratings on Japan Airlines Corp. and Japan Airlines International
Co. Ltd., its wholly owned subsidiary, and removed the ratings
from CreditWatch.  At the same time, Standard & Poor's maintained
its senior unsecured debt ratings on both companies at 'CCC' and
kept the ratings on CreditWatch with developing implications.  On
Sept. 18, 2009, S&P placed the corporate credit and senior
unsecured debt ratings on both companies on CreditWatch with
negative implications and maintained the CreditWatch status on
Oct. 16, 2009, and Nov. 4, 2009.  On Nov. 13, 2009, S&P maintained
its CreditWatch status on the corporate ratings on both companies
and revised to developing its CreditWatch status on the senior
unsecured debt ratings.

The TCR-AP reported on Nov. 3, 2009, that Moody's Investors
Service downgraded the long-term debt rating and issuer rating of
Japan Airlines International Co., Ltd. to Caa1 from B1, and will
continue to review both ratings for further possible downgrade.


WILLCOM INC: Mulls Reorganizing Under Turnaround Body
-----------------------------------------------------
Bloomberg News, citing Nikkei English News, reports that Willcom
Inc. is in talks to reorganize with the support of the state-
backed Enterprise Turnaround Initiative Corp. of Japan.

Company spokesman Shinji Sugiuchi, however, told Bloomberg in an
e-mailed statement that nothing has been decided about
reorganizing with the turnaround agency.

The Nikkei said that under the plan, ETIC is likely to emerge as
the biggest shareholder while Softbank Corp. and Advantage
Partners may also take stakes, according to Bloomberg.  Willcom
and the turnaround agency may ask creditors for ten of billions of
yen in debt relief, the Nikkei said.

Willcom, Inc., provides wireless data and voice services to
corporate and individual customers throughout Japan.  Willcom is
the largest operator employing Personal Handyphone System (PHS)
technology.

EASTERN HI FI: Kordamentha Appointed as Receivers
-------------------------------------------------
The directors of Eastern Hi Fi Group Limited have asked ASB Bank
Limited, as the first charge holder over the assets of the group,
to appoint receivers to each of the companies in the group.  The
directors said they are very disappointed that they have had to
take this action but see no alternative.

Michael Stiassny and Brendon Gibson of KordaMentha were appointed
receivers to Eastern Hi Fi Group Limited and its subsidiaries
Eastern Hi Fi Limited and Avalon-Paci?c Marketing Limited.

"After all of the steps taken during the past year the company
reduced its operating expenses in a satisfactory manner but it has
not been able to rid itself of the leases of unused and slightly
used premises which are now redundant in the company's hands and
cause unprofitable trading," the directors said in a statement to
the stock exchange.

"As the issue made by the company during 2009 was not filled the
funds then obtained to give time to turn around the business
operation and quit the leases have now been used and so the
directors have no ability to continue the company trading in such
circumstances," they said.

Mr. Gibson told BusinessWire the company owed creditors about
NZ$4 million across the entity, including bank loans.

"We're assessing the position and working out how best to
proceed," BusinessWire quoted Mr. Gibson as saying. "It's a
reasonably simple business with limited retail businesses now, and
it's got an import distribution," he said.  BusinessWire notes Mr.
Gibson said they're still considering what the best option will
be.

The company posted a loss of NZ$979,761 in the six months to
June last year, and had reduced its retail outlets to three.

Based in New Zealand, Eastern Hi Fi Group Limited -
http://www.easternhifigroup.com-- is engaged in importation,
wholesaling and retailing of audio visual equipment.  It operates
retail outlets in New Zealand, in Greater Auckland area and in
Tauranga, Napier and Wellington.  The company operates through its
subsidiaries Pacific Audio Limited, Eastern Hi Fi Ltd, Avalon
Pacific Marketing Ltd and Avalon Audio Corporation Limited. Avalon
Pacific Marketing Ltd has sole New Zealand distribution rights for
a select portfolio of brands.  This portfolio includes KEF, Polk
Audio, Audioquest, Dynaudio, Goldring and Hitachi.  These brands
are marketed throughout the country.  Approximately 60% of the
product imported by Avalon Pacific Marketing Ltd is sold at retail
by the Company. Eastern HiFi Ltd operates six stores with outlets
in Auckland (North Shore, Mt Eden, Newmarket and Howick), Tauranga
and Napier. Eastern HiFi Ltd markets brands, such as Denon, Loewe,
Bose, Rotel, Perreaux and Image.


HILL AND STEWART: Closes Four Remaining Stores
----------------------------------------------
Australian company JB Hi-Fi has decided to close its four
remaining Hill and Stewart appliance stores in Auckland.

The Herald relates a spokesman in JB Hi-Fi's Melbourne head office
said the Hill and Stewart stores were a small part of its
New Zealand business and it was "struggling for scale" in that
part of the market.

JB Hi-Fi CEO Richard Uechtritz told current.com.au that the
company wanted to focus on its nine JB Hi-Fi stores around the
North Island.  Mr. Uechtritz also said the leases on the Hill and
Stewart stores in New Zealand had expired and the company had
decided not to renew them.

According to the report, Hill and Stewart co-founder John Stewart
said he was sad to see the end of a name that had been around for
almost 60 years.

Hill and Stewart first opened in Auckland in 1951.  JB Hi-Fi,
which sells home entertainment and computer products, bought the
chain from its management in 2006.

RJ VENTURES: High Court Upholds Ruling on Foreclosed Assets
-----------------------------------------------------------
The Supreme Court has ruled that the Philippine National Bank may
take over Makati and Tagaytay properties owned by a company led by
businessman Ramon P. Jacinto amid a dispute over soured loans,
BusinessWorld Online reports.

Upholding a decision by the appeals court, BusinessWorld relates,
the high tribunal said PNB has a claim or lien over the Makati and
Tagaytay properties of RJ Ventures Realty and Development Corp.

According to BusinessWorld, the Court of Appeals in August last
year nullified an execution order issued by the Makati City
Regional Trial Court that retained the two properties in the
Jacinto firm's possession.

ABS-CBN News recounts that in 1996, First Women's Credit
Corporation won the bid on the sale of the Buendia property in
Makati City at the bid price of PHP3.68 billion but due to its
inability to come up with the entire purchase price, FWCC applied
for financing with PNB.

Prior to the approval of the loan, ABS-CBN relates, FWCC
transferred all its rights and title over the 8,000 square meter-
Buendia property to Jacinto's company RJ Ventures Realty and
Development Corporation, which in turn assumed the right to
purchase the Buendia property and the obligations of FWCC to pay
PNB the balance of the purchase price.

According to ABS-CBN, RJ Ventures applied for, and was granted, a
loan from PNB in the amount of PHP2.94 billion, equivalent to 80%
of the purchase price, with the Buendia property as security
in order to pay for the balance of the purchase price.  However,
before granting the loan, PNB required RJ Ventures to deposit an
additional 10 percent downpayment or PHP368 million.

ABS-CBN relates that in order to pay the additional downpayment,
Rajah Broadcasting borrowed PHP350 million from PNB for re-lending
to RJ Ventures, which was secured by a pledge consisting of 70%
shares of stock in Rajah Broadcasting and 40% shares of stock
Jacinto in FWCC.

In addition, says ABS-CBN, Rajah Broadcasting secured another loan
from PNB in the amount of PHP100 million, which was secured by
broadcasting equipment of the radio network, and a real estate
mortgage over certain properties in Tagaytay of RFR Development,
which held itself out as "accommodation mortgagor."  Subsequently,
ABS-CBN notes, PNB demanded from the two firms the payment of
PHP5.40 billion and PHP841.46 million, respectively.

PNB instituted foreclosure proceedings on the Buendia and Tagaytay
properties after Jacintos' firms defaulted in their obligations,
according to ABS-CBN News.

* Asia Poised for Growth But Policy Shifts Needed, ADB Says
-----------------------------------------------------------
Asian economies are poised for accelerated growth as the global
economic crisis recedes, but recovery remains fragile and
carefully calibrated policy adjustments along with increased
integration efforts will be needed to sustain growth and cushion
the region against future shocks, says a new study commissioned by
the Asian Development Bank.

The study, entitled Policy Changes for Asia after the Global
Recession: Impact of the Global Economy and Policy Implications,
notes that growth in the region is set to quicken this year as the
global economy regains strength.  But it also cautions that
recovery in Asia is still overly dependent on policy support from
developed economies, while a turnaround in the region's largest
market, the US, has yet to gain traction.  Mobile capital flows
which can cause volatility in exchange rates and domestic
liquidity also continue to pose a risk to emerging economies in
the region.

The study, prepared by the Centennial Group International, is one
of a series of reports that will be presented at a two-day
regional forum on the Impact of the Global Economic and Financial
Crisis organized by ADB at its headquarters in Manila starting
today, January 14.  Top officials including policymakers, finance
ministers, heads of central banks, business leaders and
development experts from nearly 20 countries from developing Asia
are taking part in the forum.

Opening the forum, ADB President Haruhiko Kuroda said, "The region
is now showing signs of a V-shaped recovery, with a 6.6% growth
outlook for this year.  While we believe developing Asia is
leading the global economic recovery, it is still too early to
relax vigorous efforts to restore demand and stabilize financial
systems.  In particular, exit strategies for fiscal stimulus must
be carefully timed."

Poverty reduction will not be sustained at the pace of pre-crisis
years unless sources of growth are rebalanced toward more domestic
and regional demand, and made more inclusive. It is imperative for
the region to bring growth back to its higher trajectory to cover
the lost ground on poverty reduction, and to support global
recovery, Mr. Kuroda stressed.

In a second report entitled, Policy Changes for Asia after the
Global Recession: Long Term Implications for Asian Economies, the
study notes that Asia should continue to strengthen cooperation in
the financial sector as a bulwark against future financial turmoil
in developed economies, but also stresses that integration efforts
should be modest in size to ensure they deliver real benefits.

"Policy makers should avoid using up scarce bureaucratic resources
and limited political goodwill on huge initiatives which do not
yield tangible benefits at the ground level but should instead
focus on smaller scale efforts," this report says.

It notes that areas where financial cooperation could be
strengthened are bilateral agreements allowing large financial
institutions in one country to expand or acquire banks in another,
as well as the expansion of sector privileges in subregions, such
as Greater Mekong Subregion.

The report also advised that to support future growth, countries
in the region should increase intraregional trade and take steps
to raise productivity and their capacity for innovation.  Smaller
economies should adopt policies which attract low cost
manufacturers, foreign direct investment, and tourism.

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.
