INDOPHIL RESOURCES: Acquires Alsons 3.27% Share in Tampakan Mine
----------------------------------------------------------------
BusinessWorld Online reports that Indophil Resources NL has
acquired the remaining stake of Alsons Corp. in Tampakan copper-
gold project.

According to the report, Gavan Collery, Indophil Resources
corporate affairs manager, said the firm issued 25.9 million
shares to Alsons last month as payment for Alsons' 3.27% interest
in the project.

The sale would lift Indophil's holdings in the project to 37.5%
while Xstrata Copper holds the remaining 62.5% interest in the
Tampakan project.

The report relates Anita Krauser, Indophil Resources company
secretary, said Alsons' 3.27% interest in the Tampakan project
will be registered to Indophil Resources upon compliance with
standard Philippine procedures.

The Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific reported earlier this
month that the Australian Government's Federal Treasurer on
recommendation from the Foreign Investment Review Board (FIRB)
formally approved Zijin Mining Group's takeover offer for
Indophil.

Zijin's bid for Indophil at AU$1.28 per share values Indophil at
approximately AU$545 million on a fully-diluted basis.  The bid
has been recommended by Indophil's Directors in the absence
of a superior offer.

Indophil Resources' acquisition of Alsons remaining 3.27% stake is
part of the condition of Chinese copper producer Zijin Mining
Group Co., Ltd. in taking over the Australian firm, according to
BusinessWorld Online.

                      About Indophil Resources

Headquartered in Melbourne, Australia, Indophil Resources NL
-- http://www.indophil.com/-- conducts exploration and

SOUTHERN SHIPPING: PKF Chartered Appointed as Receivers
-------------------------------------------------------
The Sydney Morning Herald reports that receivers have been
appointed to Southern Shipping Co. Pty Ltd, which operates a
government-contracted sea freight and passenger service.

Altan Djenab and Dennis Turner of PKF Chartered Accountants and
Business Advisers on Thursday were appointed receivers and
managers of Southern Shipping, the report says.

"The key objective of the receivers and managers appointment is to
implement an immediate national marketing campaign to sell the
assets of the business in order to maximize asset realizations for
the benefit of all creditors," the Herald cited PKF's statement.

According to the Herald, PKF said it had been the intention of the
receivers and managers to work closely with the Tasmanian
government to assign the shipping contract to a suitable purchaser
to ensure the continuity of the service post-receivership.

The government had advised of its intention to terminate the
contract as it has arranged an alternate shipping company to
service the route, the Herald notes.

ABC News relates that Southern Shipping has been plagued by
problems.  In the past week, ABC says, Marine and Safety Tasmania
has banned Southern Shipping's ship Southern Condor from leaving
Bridport until an oil leak is fixed.  TasPort has also banned the
company from using any of its facilities.

Based in Tasmania, Australia, Southern Shipping Co. Pty Ltd --
http://www.southernshipping.com.au/-- is a sea freight and
passenger service.  Southern Shipping has two Roll On/Roll Off
vessels, Matthew Flinders III and Southern Condor II.

* China's Economy Expands 8.7% in 2009
--------------------------------------
China's economic growth accelerated to 8.7% year-on-year in 2009,
achieving the full-year growth target of 8% and totaling CNY33.53
trillion (US$4.91 trillion), China Daily reports citing the
National Bureau of Statistics.  The growth rate was 10.7% year-on
year in the fourth quarter.

China Daily relates the statistics agency said the GDP growth rate
for the first quarter was revised to 6.2%, from 6.1% and that for
the third quarter was revised to 9.1%, from 8.9% and that for the
second quarter stays unchanged, 7.9%.

In 2009, the value-added of the primary sector topped CNY3.55
trillion, up 4.2% from a year earlier; that of the industrial
sector stood at CNY15.70 trillion, up 9.5%t year-on-year; and the
tertiary sector, the service sector, reported value-added totaling
CNY14.29 trillion, up 8.9%, according to NBS.

"Last year is the most difficult one for China's economy in the
new century," the report quoted Ma Jiantang, director of the
National Bureau of Statistics, as saying.  "Thanks to government's
efforts to deal with various difficulties, the country's economy
ended accelerating slide and began to recover as a whole."

According to the Daily, Ma attributed the recovery mainly to the
implementation of the proactive fiscal policy and moderately loose
monetary policy, as well as the stimulus package adopted by the
government to cope with the global financial crisis.

Ma described the country's economic development last year as a
"harvest", saying the newly released figures confirmed a V-shaped
recovery of the economy from the world economic downturn, the
Daily adds.

AMMARUN FOUNDRIES: CRISIL Places 'B' Ratings on Various Bank Debts
------------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its ratings of 'B/Stable/P4' to Ammarun
Foundries' bank facilities.

   Facilities                         Ratings
   ----------                         -------
   INR95.0 Million Cash Credit        B/Stable (Assigned)
   INR41.8 Million Term Loan          B/Stable (Assigned)
   INR15.0 Million Post Shipment      P4 (Assigned)
                   Credit#
   INR30.0 Million Inland Letter      P4 (Assigned)
                   of Credit
   #includes foreign bills, domestic bills and cheque
     discounting facility

The ratings reflect AF's weak financial risk profile, and exposure
to risks relating to low capacity utilization, and fragmented
nature of the iron castings industry.  These weaknesses are
partially offset by the firm's established track record in the
castings industry.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that the AF will continue to benefit from its
promoters' track record in the castings industry.  The outlook may
be revised to 'Negative' if AF's debt servicing ability financial
risk profile weakens due to sharp decline in accruals,
deterioration in the liquidity position, or if the firm undertakes
any large debt-funded capital expenditure programmes. The outlook
may be revised to 'Positive' if AF's financial risk profile
improves led by fresh equity infusion and improvement in
utilization of capacities and profitability.

                      About Ammarun Foundries

Set up in 1991 as a partnership firm by Mr. N Visvanathan and his
family members, AF manufactures grey and ductile iron castings.
The foundry is based out of Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu and caters to
customers from various industries such as the automotive, motor
and pump, tractor, valve, textile, and general engineering
industries.  It has production capacity of 2000 tonnes per month.

AF reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR6.4 million on net
sales of INR501 million for 2008-09 (refers to financial year,
April 1 to March 31), as against a PAT of INR1.2 million on net
sales of INR474 million for 2007-08.


BALAJI BULLIONS: CRISIL Cuts Ratings on Various Debts to 'P5'
-------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has downgraded its rating on the bank facilities of Balaji
Bullions and Commodities to 'P5' from 'P4', and has removed the
rating from 'Rating Watch with Negative Implications'.

   Facilities                             Ratings
   ----------                             -------
   INR250.0 Million Bills Discounting*    P5 (Downgraded from P4;
                                          removed from Rating
                                          Watch with Negative
                                          Implications')

   INR100.0 Million Packing Credit**      P5 (Downgraded from P4;
                                          removed from Rating
                                          Watch with Negative
                                          Implications')

   *Includes a sublimit of INR100 million on gold loan.
   **Interchangeable with bills discounting.

The downgrade reflects the delays in payment of export finance
bills under the bills discounting facility.

The management risk remains high due to investigations carried out
by various government authorities in Balaji Bullions and
Commodities Pvt Ltd and other Balaji group companies including
Balaji Universal Tradelink Pvt Ltd.

Incorporated in 2007, BBCPL reported a profit after tax (PAT) of
INR13.99 million on net sales of INR2485.2 million for 2008-09
(refers to financial year, April 1 to March 31), against a PAT of
INR1.16 million on net sales of INR375.88 million for 2007-08.


BALAJI UNIVERSAL: CRISIL Downgrades Ratings on Bank Facilities
--------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has downgraded its rating on the bank facilities of Balaji
Universal Tradelink (India) Pvt Ltd to 'P5' from 'P4', and has
removed the rating from 'Rating Watch with Negative Implications'.
The downgrade reflects the delays in payment of export finance
bills under the post shipment credit facility.

   Facilities                              Ratings
   ----------                              -------
   INR190.0 Million Post Shipment Credit   P5 (Downgraded from P4;
                                           removed from Rating
                                           Watch with Negative
                                           Implications')

   INR150.0 Million Packing Credit         P5 (Downgraded from P4;
                                           removed from Rating
                                           Watch with Negative
                                           Implications')

   INR33.0 Million Proposed Short Term     P5 (Downgraded from P4;
                   Bank Loan Facility      removed from Rating
                                           Watch with Negative
                                           Implications')

The management risk remains high due to investigations carried out
by various government authorities in Balaji Universal Tradelink
Pvt Ltd and other Balaji group companies including Balaji Bullions
and Commodities Pvt Ltd.

Incorporated in 2007, BUPTL reported a profit after tax (PAT) of
INR50 million on net sales of INR3.24 billion for 2008-09 (refers
to financial year, April 1 to March 31), as against a PAT of
INR4.5 million on net sales of INR1 billion for 2007-08.


BENGAL SHELTER: Delay in Loan Repayment Prompts CRISIL 'D' Ratings
------------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its 'D' rating to Bengal Shelter Housing
Development Ltd's bank loan facilities, as the company has been
delaying its debt-related payments.  The delay has been because of
the company's weak liquidity.

   Facilities                                Ratings
   ----------                                -------
   INR472.5 Million Rupee Term Loan          D (Assigned)
   INR118.5 Million Proposed Long-Term       D (Assigned)
                    Bank Loan Facility
   INR1419.0 Million Cash Credit Facilities  D (Assigned)

Bengal Shelter is part of the Shelter group, which is based in
Kolkata.  Bengal Shelter was formed as a 50:50 joint venture
between Shelter Projects Ltd and West Bengal Housing Board in
2003.  The Shelter group has been in the real estate development
business for nearly two decades; it has been present mainly in
residential development and has developed over 1 million square
feet of residential space.  The group has completed over 25
residential projects in Kolkata and in other suburban towns of
West Bengal.

For 2008-09 (refers to financial year, April 1 to March 31),
Bengal Shelter reported a provisional profit after tax (PAT) of
INR24.9 million on net sales of INR270.4 million, against a PAT of
INR25.1 million on net sales of INR265.2 million for the previous
year.


CHHABRA ISPAT: CRISIL Assigns 'B+' Rating on INR100 Mil. Term Loan
------------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its ratings of 'B+/Stable/P4' to Chhabra Ispat
Pvt Ltd's bank facilities.

   Facilities                           Ratings
   ----------                           -------
   INR125.5 Million Cash Credit*        B+/Stable (Assigned)
   INR100 Million Term Loan             B+/Stable (Assigned)
   INR14.5 Million Letter of Credit     P4 (Assigned)

   *Includes proposed amount of INR37 Million

The ratings reflect Chhabra Ispat's average financial risk
profile, and exposure to risks relating to marginal market share,
and cyclicality, in the steel industry.  These rating weaknesses
are partially offset by Chhabra Ispat's average operating
efficiency.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that Chhabra Ispat will maintain a stable business
risk profile over the medium term, backed by its operational
efficiencies.  The outlook may be revised to 'Positive' if the
company's revenues and profitability increase, or if it achieves
greater integration in operations.  Conversely, the outlook may be
revised to 'Negative' if the company's operating profit declines
sharply because of low capacity utilization, or if there are
delays in executing capital expenditure (capex) programme, or if
it undertakes large debt-funded capex, thereby weakening its
financial risk profile.

                        About Chhabra Ispat

Set up by Mr. Surendra Kumar Jain, Chhabra Ispat, manufactures
mild steel billets, and has a current capacity of 62,400 tonnes
per annum (tpa) at its production facilities near Durgapur (West
Bengal).

Chhabra Ispat reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR0.32 million
on net sales of INR187 million for 2008-09 (refers to financial
year, April 1 to March 31), as against a PAT of INR0.20 million on
net sales of INR7.70 million for 2007-08.


HARISONS & HARLAJ: CRISIL Reaffirms 'BB' Rating on Term Loan
------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL's ratings on Harisons & Harlaj Ltd's bank facilities
continue to reflect Harisons' weak financial risk profile marked
by moderate gearing, weak debt protection metrics, and small net
worth, high geographic concentration in revenues, small scale of
operations and susceptibility to inherent cyclicality in the home
furnishings segment.  These rating weaknesses are partially offset
by the benefits that Harisons derives from its established
presence in the home furnishings segment.

   Facilities                               Ratings
   ----------                               -------
   INR13.9 Million Term Loan                BB/Stable (Reaffirmed)
   INR115.0 Million Export Packing Credit   P4+ (Reaffirmed)
   INR35.0 Million Bill Discounting         P4+ (Reaffirmed)
   INR2.0 Million Bank Guarantee            P4+ (Reaffirmed)

For arriving at the ratings, CRISIL has combined the business and
financial risk profile of Harisons and its associate concern,
Harihar Textiles.  This is because of significant business
synergies and fungibility of cash flows. Moreover, Harisons holds
88 percent of the capital in Harihar.  As a backward integration
initiative, Harihar is undertaking a project to manufacture cotton
yarn.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL expects Harisons to maintain its established position in
the home furnishing market, backed by its promoters' track record.
However, the financial risk profile is expected to be constrained
over the medium term due to the large debt-funded backward
integration project.  The outlook may be revised to 'Positive' if
Harisons's margins improve more than expected resulting from
backward integration initiative and if there is significant
improvement in its revenues.  Conversely, the outlook may be
revised to 'Negative' if company's revenues and margins decline
significantly and its capital structure deteriorates further due
to additional debt funded capex.

Set up in 1979 as a partnership firm, H&H was incorporated as a
private limited company in 1995.  H&H manufactures carpets,
cushion covers, and other home furnishing items, such as bath
mats, door mats, bed covers, and curtains.  Its plant in Panipat
(Haryana) has capacity to manufacture 2 million square meters of
per annum. It exports its products to Europe, the US, and Japan.

H&H reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR 3.1 million on net
sales of INR 587 million for 2008-09 (refers to financial year,
April 1 to March 31), against a PAT of INR 3.0 million on net
sales of INR672 million for 2007-08.


K N INTERNATIONAL: Delays in Loan Payment Cue CRISIL Junk Ratings
-----------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its 'B-/Negative/P4' ratings to K N
International Ltd's bank facilities.

   Facilities                        Ratings
   ----------                        -------
   INR20.0 Million Term Loan         B-/Negative (Assigned)
   INR50.0 Million Bank Guarantee    P4 (Assigned)

The ratings reflect KNIL's large working capital requirements, and
small scale of operations.  The ratings also factor in the
repeated instances of overdrawing of bank limits, and delays in
payment of term loan instalments to non-banking financial
companies, by KNIL in the past.  These weaknesses are partially
offset by the company's reputed clientele, healthy order book, and
low gearing.

Outlook: Negative

CRISIL believes that KNIL's liquidity could worsen, given the
company's large working capital requirements.  The ratings may be
downgraded if there is an adverse affect on KNIL's cash accruals
or ability to service debt in a timely manner.  Conversely, the
outlook may be revised to 'Stable' if there is a significant and
sustained improvement in the company's liquidity.

KNIL, promoted by Mr. Narendra Singh Yadav, began operations in
1988. The company has its facility in Sonebhadra (Uttar Pradesh)
and undertakes construction of roads and ash dyke plants.  Its
customers include National Thermal Power Corporation Ltd, National
Hydro Power Corporation, and Hindalco Industries Ltd (for ash dyke
plants), and government bodies (for roads construction).

KNIL reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR8 million on net
sales of INR283 million for 2008-09 (refers to financial year,
April 1 to March 31), against a PAT of INR11 million on net sales
of INR376 million for 2007-08.


PREMIER MARINE: CRISIL Reaffirms 'B-' Rating on INR12MM Loan
------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL's ratings on the bank facilities of Premier Marine Foods
continue to reflect PMF's weak financial risk profile marked by
weak debt protection measures, high gearing levels, and low
profitability and exposure to risks inherent in the seafood
industry.  These rating weaknesses are partially offset by the
benefits that PMF derives from the industry experience of its
promoters.

   Facilities                          Ratings
   ----------                          -------
   INR12.0 Million Long-Term Loan      B-/Stable (Reaffirmed)
   INR50.0 Million Packing Credit      P4 (Reaffirmed)
   Facilities
   INR70.0 Million Bill Discounting    P4 (Reaffirmed)
   *Including ad-hoc limit of INR10.0 million

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that PMF will continue to benefit from its
established relationships with customers over the medium term.
However, PMF's financial risk profile is likely to remain highly
leveraged over the medium term as the firm's working capital
requirements are expected to remain large.  The outlook may be
revised to 'Positive' if the firm's financial risk profile
improves due to more-than-expected cash accruals driven by
significant increase in scale of operations and diversification of
product profile.  Conversely, the outlook may be revised to
'Negative' if PMF's financial risk profile deteriorates, most
likely because of more-than-expected debt-funded capital
expenditure leading to deterioration in its capital structure, or
steep decline in volumes or margins.

                        About Premier Marine

PMF, a partnership firm, was established in 2002 by Mr. A Mustaffa
and his family. The firm is a Kerala-based exporter of seafood ?
mainly cuttlefish, octopus, and squid.  Its main markets are Italy

reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR0.8 million on net sales
of INR304.3 million, against a PAT of INR0.7 million on net sales
of INR167.5 million for 2007-08.


RAVALI SPINNERS: CRISIL Reaffirms 'BB+' Rating on Term Loan
-----------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL's ratings on the bank loan facilities of Ravali Spinners
Pvt Ltd continue to reflect the risks associated with Ravali's
large capital expenditure (capex) plans, and the susceptibility of
its margins to market competition (driven by fragmentation in the
industry) and fluctuations in cotton prices. These rating
weaknesses are partially offset by Ravali's above-average
financial risk profile marked by moderate gearing and debt
protection measures, and its healthy operating efficiency
supported by modern spinning facilities.

   Facilities                          Ratings
   ----------                          -------
   INR91.4 Million Cash Credit         BB+/Stable (Reaffirmed)
   INR435.4 Million Term Loan          BB+/Stable (Reaffirmed)
   INR38.3 Million Letter of Credit    P4+ (Reaffirmed)

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that Ravali will maintain its healthy operating
efficiency and strong cash accruals over the medium term, backed
by successful stabilization of its recent enhanced capacity.  The
outlook may be revised to 'Positive' if the company commissions
the third phase of its capacity expansion project on schedule, and
is able to achieve adequate capacity utilization.  Conversely, the
outlook could be revised to 'Negative' in case of a significant
delay in Ravali's capacity expansion project, or if the company's
financial risk profile deteriorates, most likely because of
decline in operating margin.

                      About Ravali Spinners

Ravali is promoted by Mr. Vanka Ravindranath and Ms. Vanka Raja
Kumari. The company manufactures carded and combed yarn, with
counts in the 20s to 60s range.  It began operations in 2007 with

trial production in January 2009.  The company plans to scale up
its capacity to 50,400 spindles by July 2010. The cost of the

funded in a debt-to-equity ratio of 3:1.

For 2008-09 (refers to financial year, April 1 to March 31),
Ravali reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR23 million on net
sales of INR385 million, against a net loss INR14 million on net

SUPREME OVERSEAS: CRISIL Puts 'P4+' Ratings on Various Bank Debts
-----------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its rating of 'P4+' to Supreme Overseas
Exports India Pvt Ltd's bank facilities.

   Facilities                            Ratings
   ----------                            -------
   INR83.50 Million PCC/EPC*^            P4+ (Assigned)
   INR30.00 Million Standby Line         P4+ (Assigned)

   *Packing Cash Credit/Export Packing Credit
   ^Includes a proposed limit of INR8.50 Million.
   # Foreign Documentary Bills for Purchase/Foreign
     Bills Exchange Purchased

The rating reflects Supreme's working capital intensive nature of
operations leading to constrained financial risk profile, and
exposure to risks relating to fluctuations in raw material prices.
These rating weaknesses are partially offset by the benefits that
Supreme derives from its promoter's experience in the leather
industry.

                      About Supreme Overseas

Supreme (formerly, Supreme Overseas) was set up as a partnership
firm in 1974 in Bangalore by Mr Sudhindra Sriharsha.  In 1998, the
firm was converted into a private limited company. Supreme
manufactures leather garments and leather products for the export
market; it has a production capacity of 0.15 million pieces of
leather garments per annum.

Supreme reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR12.6 million on
net sales of INR516 million for 2008-09 (refers to financial year,
April 1 to March 31), as against a PAT of INR3.4 million on net

VALAY CONSTRUCTIONS: CRISIL Places 'B+' Rating on INR41.6MM Loan
----------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its ratings of 'B+/Stable/P4' to the bank
facilities of Valay Constructions Pvt Ltd.

   Facilities                           Ratings
   ----------                           -------
   INR41.6 Million Long Term Loan       B+/Stable (Assigned)
   INR10.0 Million Cash Credit          B+/Stable (Assigned)
   INR30.0 Million Bank Guarantee       P4 (Assigned)

The ratings reflect VCPL's below-average financial risk profile,
and exposure to risks relating to a small net worth and modest
scale of operations.  These rating weaknesses are partially offset
by the benefits VCPL derives from its healthy revenue growth,
satisfactory order book position, and promoter's extensive
experience in the construction business.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that Valay Construction Pvt Ltd (VCPL) will
maintain its credit risk profile over the medium term led by a
healthy order-book and in the absence of any large, debt-funded
capex. The outlook may be revised to 'Positive' if the company
successfully increases its scale of operations and diversifies its
revenue stream, while improving its profitability and capital
structure. Conversely, the outlook may be revised to 'Negative' if
cost and time overruns occur in the completion of VCPL's projects,
or if its liquidity weakens further because of delays in debtor
collection.

                     About Valay Constructions

Incorporated in 1994 and promoted by Mr. Bhagwan Apparao Tonge,
VCPL undertakes civil and infrastructure construction, primarily
in the road and irrigation segments.  It is a registered Class 1A

JAPAN AIRLINES: To Cut 15,000 Jobs by March 2011
------------------------------------------------
Bloomberg News, citing the Yomiuri newspaper, reports that
Japan Airlines Corp. plans to cut 15,000 jobs, or 30% of the
company?s group workforce, by the end of March 2011.

The newspaper said that move would produce annual cost savings of
JPY65.9 billion (US$729 million), Bloomberg relates.

                AMR to Fight Delta-JAL Immunity Bid

Mary Schlangenstein at Bloomberg News reports that American
Airlines, vying to keep Japan Airlines in the Oneworld alliance,
vowed to resist any move by the Asian carrier and Delta Air Lines
Inc. to win regulators? approval to coordinate flights and fares.

Bloomberg relates American Chief Financial Officer Tom Horton told
investors on a conference call Wednesday that talks with Japan Air
continue even as interest in a capital investment is now being
"downplayed" by the airline and Japanese government officials.

The report says Delta and American, the world's two largest
airlines, are fighting for access to Japan Air's routes in Asia,
Bloomberg notes.  An aviation treaty recently agreed to by the
U.S. and Japan would let alliance partners seek authority to link
flights and fares, lowering costs and boosting revenue, Bloomberg
notes.

According to Bloomberg, losing Japan Air would leave American?s
Oneworld alliance without a partner in the world?s second-largest
economy and bolster Delta in Tokyo.  Bloomberg, citing people
close to the matter, says Japan Air is likely to switch to Delta?s
SkyTeam group from Oneworld as part of its turnaround plan in
bankruptcy.

American and private-equity firm TPG have offered to invest $1.4
billion in Japan Air, while Delta and its SkyTeam partners have
offered $1 billion, including a $500 million investment.

Bloomberg relates Mr. Horton, citing discussions with JAL, Japan?s
government and the state-affiliated fund overseeing the carrier?s
restructuring, said that a cash infusion for Japan Air is no
longer as important a consideration as it once.

Both American and Delta have said they would ask federal
regulators for immunity from antitrust laws to collaborate on
schedules and pricing in an expanded alliance with JAL, Bloomberg
adds.

L-JAC 5: Moody's Downgrades Ratings on Five Classes of Notes
------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has downgraded five classes of L-JAC 5
Trust.  The final maturity of the trust certificates will take
place in August 2015.

The individual rating actions are listed below.

  -- Class C, downgraded to Ba3 from Baa3; previously, placed
     under review for possible downgrade on November 19, 2009

  -- Class D-2, downgrade to Caa1 from Ba3; previously, placed
     under review for possible downgrade on November 19, 2009

  -- Class E-2, downgraded to Caa2 from B1; previously, placed
     under review for possible downgrade on November 19, 2009

  -- Class F-2, downgraded to Caa2 from B2; previously, placed
     under review for possible downgrade on November 19, 2009

  -- Class G-2, downgraded to Caa3 from B3; previously, placed
     under review for possible downgrade on November 19, 2009

L-JAC 5 Trust, effected in September 2007, represents the
securitization of loans to ten borrowers.  The transaction is
currently backed by 13 loans.  The loan portfolio is divided into
three loan pools, A, B, and C.

According to the transaction structure, should an underlying loan
be accelerated and judged no longer recoverable by the Servicer,
the unrecoverable amount of the defaulted loan will be recognized
as a loss.

The loss will be allocated to the most subordinate-rated class
corresponding to the defaulted loan in reverse order of sequential
pay priority.

Losses from Pool B will be allocated to Classes D-2, E-2, F-2 and
G-2; Classes A through C correspond to all pools.

Moody's previous rating actions, in July 2009, reflected the
rating agency's concerns about the likelihood of collateral
recovery, based on recovery stresses in the range of 14% to 29%,
and 16% for the weighted average (excluding the specially serviced
loans), on 82% of the loan pool (considered as having a high
likelihood of default).

In its November 2009 review, Moody's considered even greater
recovery stress, in light of the servicer's work-out strategies
and appraisal reports on the underlying properties of the two Pool
B loans that had defaulted in March and July 2009.

Moody's examined the special servicer's Business Plan and
appraisal reports on the underlying properties for the two
defaulted loans, and came to the conclusion that the underlying
properties could be sold at prices lower than their allocated loan
amounts, and that the realized losses could lead to the impairment
of the Class C and D-2 through G-2 trust certificates.

The loan that defaulted in March 2009 is backed by multi-family
properties in large cities outside of Tokyo.  The loan that
defaulted in July 2009 is backed by two office buildings in Tokyo
and three hotels (one exclusively for extended stays) in regional
cities.


ORSO FUNDING: S&P Downgrades Ratings on 2005-3 Certificates
-----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its ratings on ORSO
Funding CMBS 2005-3 Trust's class D to G and class M trust
certificates.  At the same time, Standard & Poor's affirmed its
ratings on classes A to C and X issued under the same transaction.

On March 3, 2009, Standard & Poor's lowered its ratings on the
class E to G trust certificates.  The downgrades reflected
uncertainty over the likely collection amount from the sale of the
collateral properties backing the transaction's underlying loan
extended to one obligor, which had defaulted in October 2008.
Then, on May 20, 2009, S&P lowered its ratings on classes D to G
and class M after considering various sources of information,
including reports provided by the servicer about progress in the
sale of the underlying collateral properties.

S&P is downgrading classes D to G and class M because S&P take the
view that uncertainty is mounting over the likely recovery amounts
from the collateral properties given the reports provided by the
servicer about progress in the sale of the properties.

The transaction's underlying loan was originally backed by 26
collateral properties.  There were 25 remaining properties when
the loan defaulted in October 2008, 18 of which have been sold
since the loan defaulted (the initial underwriting value of 19
properties that have been liquidated so far ?- one before the
default and 18 since the default -? made up about 54% of Standard
& Poor's initial assumption of the combined value of the 26
properties).  Purchase offers have been made for five of the seven
properties (representing about 20% of Standard & Poor's initial
underwriting value) that remain unsold.  As for the two remaining
properties (representing about 26% of Standard & Poor's initial
underwriting value), sales activities are in progress.  The
completion of the sale of the seven properties that have yet to be
sold would mark the termination of recovery procedures for the
transaction's underlying loan.  The combined sales amount of the
18 properties that were sold after the loan defaulted was about
63% of Standard & Poor's initial assumption of the combined value
of the 18 properties.  Based on the reports provided by the
servicer, S&P assumed that the combined sales amount of the seven
properties that have yet to be sold would be about 67% of S&P's
initial assumption of the combined value of the seven properties.
Since progress has been made in the sale of the collateral
properties and the repayment of principal on the trust
certificates (sequential redemption structure), credit enhancement
levels for the upper tranches have improved.  Nevertheless, there
is a risk that collection procedures will not be completed by the
transaction's legal final maturity date, which is drawing closer.
S&P affirmed its ratings on classes B and C given the limited
amount of time left until the transaction's legal final maturity.

Although S&P affirmed its rating on class X, S&P is considering
amending the rating methodology for interest-only certificates,
which includes class X of this transaction.  If the proposal is
adopted, it could affect the rating on class X.

ORSO Funding CMBS 2005-3 Trust is a single-borrower CMBS
transaction.  The trust certificates were initially secured by one
nonrecourse loan extended to one borrower, which was initially
backed by 26 real estate properties.  The transaction was arranged
by Bear Stearns (Japan) Ltd., Tokyo Branch.  Premier Asset
Management Co. acts as the servicer for this transaction.

The ratings address the full and timely payment of interest and
the ultimate repayment of principal by the transaction's legal
final maturity date in 2010 for the class A trust certificates,
the full payment of interest and ultimate repayment of principal
by the legal final maturity date for the class B to G and class M
certificates, and the timely payment of available interest for the
class X certificates.

TOSHIBA CORP: Files US Trade Complaint Against Winstron
-------------------------------------------------------
Toshiba Corp. has filed a complaint with the US International
Trade Commission against Wistron Corp., seeking to block imports
of notebook computer products by its Taiwanese rival, The Taipei
Times reports.

Toshiba claimed Wistron is infringing on two of its patents
specifically on the Acer Aspire 4810T notebook computer made by
Wistron for Acer Inc., the report says.

Taipei Times relates Toshiba said Wistron and its US affiliates
"were given notice of their infringement in communications that
took place" with Toshiba before the complaint was filed.

According to the report, Toshiba said it also filed a civil suit
against Wistron over the patents in California.  That case is
likely to be put on hold until the ITC investigation is completed,
the report notes.

Meanwhile, Taipei Times reports Wistron Corp. said the patent
infringement lawsuit brought by Toshiba would have a limited
impact on its business.

The company said it values intellectual property rights and has
commissioned a lawyer in the US to handle the case, according to
Taipei Times.

giant US$900 million over the next five years.

A Hynix official told Yonhap that "All legal claims are open to
settlement."

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific on
March 12, 2009, Reuters said the United States District Court for
the Northern District of California entered its judgment in one of
the Rambus cases.

The judgment of US$349,035,842 in damages and an additional
US$47,845,402 in interest accompanies a compulsory license
agreement that allows Hynix to continue to sell dynamic random
access memory, or DRAM, in the United States, according to
Reuters.  Hynix lodged an appeal in April, Yonhap says.

HYNIX SEMICONDUCTOR: Fourth Quarter Net Profit Rises to KRW657BB
----------------------------------------------------------------
Hynix Semiconductor Inc. announced the earnings results for the
fourth quarter ended December 31, 2009.

Hynix said that operating income for the fourth quarter has
substantially expanded to KRW708 billion from KRW209 billion in
the previous quarter with operating margin of 25% mainly due to
revenue increase and unit cost reduction.  Net income for the
quarter reached KRW657 billion from KRW246 billion in the third
quarter of 2009.

Consolidated sales of the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2009
totaled KRW2.8 trillion, increased by 32% compared to previous
quarter's KRW2.12 trillion.  The increase was mainly due to the
shipment growth of both DRAM and NAND Flash as well as the average
selling price improvement of DRAM.

Quarter-over-quarter, DRAM average selling price and shipment
increased by 26% and 12% respectively, while NAND Flash
experienced average selling price drop of 5% with bit growth of
37%.

Hynix also disclosed that consolidated sales of fiscal year 2009
amounted to KRW7.91 trillion increased by 16% from KRW6.82
trillion of 2008.  Operating profit totaled KRW192 billion,
turning to a profit from the loss of KRW1.92 trillion for 2008.
Net loss for the year amounted to KRW333 billion due to interest
expense and other expenses which include provisions for the
contingent liabilities.

TOPSCO INTERNATIONAL: 10 Staxs Stores Goes Into Receivership
------------------------------------------------------------
Ten Staxs clothing stores, which are owned by Topsco International
NZ Ltd, have gone into receivership resulting to up to 35 job
loss, The National Business Review reports.  Kenneth Brown and
Paul Manning of RHB Chartered Accountants Ltd were appointed as
receivers.

There are another 11 Staxs stores in New Zealand which are not
owned by Topsco and are not affected by the receivership, the
report says.

NBR relates that six out of the 10 stores affected by receivership
have already been closed, including the Bayfair, Lynmall, Botany,
Taupo, Glenfield and Newmarket stores.

Sales are being held at the Onehunga, Nelson and Hornby stores
prior to their closure while the Dunedin store is staying open as
receivers are hopeful it can be sold, the report says.

Staxs is a New Zealand-owned fashion label based in Tauranga.  Its
collections are described as European inspired.


* NEW ZEALAND: CPI Falls 0.2% in December 2009 Qtr
--------------------------------------------------
New Zealand's consumers price index (CPI) fell 0.2% for the
December 2009 quarter, the country's statistics agency said.
This fall, which was driven by lower food prices and weaker
increases for other goods and services, contributed to an annual
increase of 2.0%.

Statistics New Zealand said that food prices fell 2.4% in the
December 2009 quarter, driven by lower prices for vegetables (down
17.6%), which fell strongly from their winter peak.  Prices for
the meat, poultry, and fish subgroup and the grocery food subgroup
also fell in the December quarter.  "Although food prices fell in
the latest quarter, they were up 1.4% for the year and are 10.9%
higher than two years ago," said Prices manager Chris Pike.  The
latest annual rise in food prices included reductions in some
package sizes, which are shown as price increases in the CPI.

The fall in food prices was partly offset by a 1.5% rise in the
transport group, influenced by a 13.9% seasonal increase in
international air transport.  While international airfares were up
strongly in the December quarter, these were still 9.6% lower than
in the December 2008 quarter.  Annually, the transport group
recorded an increase of 3.7%, with prices for second-hand cars (up
13.3%) and petrol (up 3.3%) rising from relatively low levels in
late 2008.

The CPI increased 2.0% for the year to the December 2009 quarter.
Non-tradable goods and services (which do not face foreign
competition) rose 2.3% and tradables (which are imported or in
competition with imported goods) rose 1.5%.  This was the lowest
annual increase in the non-tradables component since the December
2001 quarter, reflecting relatively low annual increases for
electricity, rents, and the purchase of new housing.  "Electricity
prices were up 2.1% for the year, which is their lowest annual
rise for more than seven years," Mr. Pike said.

The CPI measures the rate of price change of goods and services
purchased by households. Statistics NZ visits 3,000 shops around
New Zealand to collect prices for the CPI and check product sizes
and features.


* NEW ZEALAND: Retail Sales Up 0.8% in November 2009
----------------------------------------------------
New Zealand's total retail sales were up 0.8 percent ($46 million)
in November 2009, following two months of flat results, Statistics
New Zealand said Thursday.  The latest increase was led by
automotive fuel retailing (up $20 million), and the 'other
retailing' industry (up $17 million).  'Other retailing' includes
activities such as retailing antique and used goods, flowers,
garden supplies, and watches and jewellery.

Statistics NZ said that core retail sales (which exclude the four
vehicle-related industries) were also up 0.8% ($34 million),
following a 0.5% increase in October 2009.

Other significant movements by industry included:

    * department stores - up $11 million

    * liquor retailing  - up $9 million

    * automotive electrical,
      smash repairs and tyres - up $9 million

    * motor vehicle retailing ? down $17 million.

According to Statistics NZ, the total retail sales trend has been
rising since February 2009 (up 2.5%), at an average rate of 0.3%
per month.  Since February 2009, the core retail trend has also
increased at an average rate of 0.3% per month, compared with an
average increase of 0.1% between April 2007 and February 2009.

The value of seasonally adjusted sales was flat in the North
Island (up just 0.2%) and rose in the South Island (up 1.8%).  The
only region with a sales decrease was Auckland, down 0.5%.  The
sales trend has been rising in the North Island since February
2009 (up 2.6%), and in the South Island since June 2009 (up 1.9%).
In the South Island the rate of increase appears to be
strengthening.

LAND BANK: Fitch Affirms Issuer Default Ratings at 'BB'
-------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed Land Bank of the Philippines' Long-term
foreign and local currency Issuer Default Ratings at 'BB', and
National Long-term rating at 'AA(phl)'.  The Outlook is Stable.
Simultaneously, the agency has affirmed LBP's Individual at 'D',
Support at '3', Support Rating Floor at 'BB-', and its
subordinated debt programme at 'BB-'.

LBP's ratings reflect its improved, albeit modest, balance sheet
position and good profitability amid the downturn.  Additionally,
provisional costs remained low and asset quality indicators have
been stable to date.  Nonetheless, Fitch notes that the bank's
existing non-performing assets may continue to be a source of
impairment, constraining its Individual rating relative to its
higher-rated peers.

However, this risk is on balance mitigated by LBP's improved
capital position (thanks to retained profits over the years),
sustained earnings and high NPL reserves buffer.  Based on Fitch's
estimates, under a stressed scenario where loss rates on NPLs,
investment properties and deferred charges are assumed at 80%, 40%
and 100%, respectively, LBP's hypothetically-lower Tier 1 capital
adequacy ratio will be about 9% (from 11% at end-2008); this
suggests that under most conceivable circumstances, the bank's
loss absorption capacity will likely be reasonable relative to its
ratings level.  With an economic recovery expected over the next
12-18 months, the probability of such an extreme scenario has
abated and hence, the Rating Outlook is Stable for LBP.

LBP is a policy bank with a universal banking license.  It is
fully owned by the Government of Philippines and operates 342
banking units across the country.

NANYA TECHNOLOGY: Swings to Profit on Higher Chips Demand
---------------------------------------------------------
Nanya Technology Corp. has announced financial results for fourth
quarter ended December 31, 2009.

Nanya reported net income of NT$211 million in the fourth quarter
mainly due to 44% increase in DRAM ASP (Average Selling Price)
quarter-over-quarter.  The company posted a net loss of NT$11.9
billion a year earlier period.

Nanya's quarterly sales revenue is NT$16.69 billion, an increase
of 45% compared to the third quarter in 2009.  Operating income in
the quarter has increased to NT$187 million from an operating loss
of NT$2.684 billion in the previous quarter.

In the fiscal year of 2009, the company posted sales revenue of
NT$42.456 billion with an operating loss of NT$16.076 billion and
a net loss of NT$20.742 billion.  All numbers are unaudited.

To enhance the company's competitiveness in DRAM industry and to
develop the most advanced DRAM technologies and products, Nanya
Technology Corp. successfully secured funding through three rounds
of financing activities in year 2009, including NT$12.22 billion
for 1 billion new shares of private placement in June, NT$16
billion of 800 million rights issue in December, and NT$18 billion
of syndicated loan from 14 banks, led by Bank of Taiwan and Mega
International Commercial Bank in November, 2009.  Nanya's capital
expenditure for year 2010 is estimated to be NT$19 billion, 30% up
compared to NT$14.6 billion in 2009.

Nanya said the pilot run of 50nm stack technology in its 12 inch
fab has been successfully demonstrated in October 2009.
Meanwhile, the conversion to 50nm for a maximum capacity of 30,000
wafers per month is scheduled to complete in the second quarter of
2010, mainly for 2Gb DDR3 DRAM products.

Nanya also said that the joint development of 42nm stack
technology between the company and Micron Technology is
progressing well for a production scheduled in the second half of
2010, with another 30 percent die cost reduction.  The 42nm will
yield 50% more chips from a single wafer than 50nm technology.
Due to technology migration, Nanya expects to see bit growth rate
of 45% in 2010.

For the 2008 fiscal year, the company posted a net loss of
NT$35.23 billion, or NT$7.54 per diluted share, compared with a
net loss of NT$12.46 billion in the prior year.  The company
reported net sales of NT$36.31 billion in the fiscal year ended
Dec. 31, 2008, compared with a net sales of NT$52.89 billion in

* Asia Can Lead Global Economic Transformation, IMF Says
--------------------------------------------------------
Asia is leading the world in recovery from the global economic
crisis and, in the coming years, the region's continued dynamism
can give it an even greater role, said IMF Managing Director
Dominique Strauss-Kahn, speaking at the Asian Financial Forum in
Hong Kong.  "Now is the time for Asia to contribute even more to
the shaping of the post-crisis global economic landscape," he
said.  "Potentially, this is a historic moment for Asia. A moment
of transformation."

To sustain its strong growth performance, Mr. Strauss-Kahn
observed that Asia?like the rest of the world?would need to adapt
to the new challenges presented by the post-crisis economy. He
said that many Asian countries are already "moving rapidly to
identify the key elements of a new model that can deliver
sustained growth."  This included the realization that there are
limits to the pace of export growth and that domestic and regional
demand would need to play an increasingly important role in
underpinning Asia's growth.

"This does not mean that Asia should become inward-looking," he
emphasized. "Rather, it means reinvigorating domestic demand and
boosting intra-regional trade. Such a recalibration of Asia's
growth model is in the region's self-interest, since it would
reduce its dependence on demand from outside Asia. It is also in
the global interest."

Mr. Strauss-Kahn set his comments on Asia in the context of the
major economic challenges facing the world. "2010 is going to be a
crucial year," he said.  "The first year when countries can lift
their eyes to the longer-term horizon."  In terms of the policies
needed to build a stronger and more sustainable global economy, he
pointed to three issues in particular:

* Maintaining the momentum of reform in the financial sector,
   including stronger?and smarter?regulation and supervision.
   "We cannot return to business as usual," he said.

* Identifying new sources of growth that can help rekindle
   private demand.  Here he pointed to the need for labor and
   product market reforms that can boost productivity.
   "Efforts to boost the 'green' economy can also support this
   restructuring effort," he said.

* Strengthening international policy collaboration is also
   essential. Mr. Strauss-Kahn said that the G20's "mutual
   assessment framework" is an important step in the right
   direction?a process aimed to ensure that the world's largest
   economies will be accountable to each other to ensure strong,
   stable and sustainable growth.  "The IMF is providing
   analytical support for this innovative approach to multilateral
   cooperation," he added.  "And I believe that this new framework
   can be one of the keys to the transformation of the global
   economy in 2010 and beyond."

The IMF Managing Director noted that the IMF had changed a lot
over the past two years in order to speed its response to the
crisis?reforming its lending instruments, streamlining
conditionality, and improving its governance. He promised further
change in 2010, including "looking at a fundamental reform of our
mandate?focusing more on systemic, not just country-specific
risks, especially in the financial sector; and developing
financing instruments that provide the insurance needed to tackle
modern crises."

Mr. Strauss-Kahn added that Asia's role also is increasing at the
IMF?with its quota and voice being brought more into line with its
weight in the global economy.

"As Asia's economic power grows, so too does Asia's interest in
promoting the successful performance of the global economy" said
Mr. Strauss-Kahn. "And as the region enhances its role in the
global policy debate, I see great potential for the world to
benefit from Asia's ideas and experiences. We all have a lot to
learn from Asia."

In this context, Mr. Strauss-Kahn noted that, along with the
Government of Korea, the IMF is organizing a high-level conference
on Asia's economic dynamism to be held in Seoul in July 2010.

                         *********

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.
