BUSINESS FINANCE: S&P Assigns 'BB' Counterparty Credit Ratings
--------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it has assigned its
'BB' long-term and 'B' short-term counterparty credit ratings to
Business Finance Ltd., a small New Zealand-based finance company
50% owned by Australian-based Liberty Financial Pty Ltd. (not
rated).  At the same time, S&P assigned a negative rating outlook
to BFL.  The ratings on BFL reflect S&P's opinion of the
unconditional and irrevocable guarantee provided to the company by
Liberty.

"BFL's risk profile on a stand-alone basis is below that of the
rating assigned, reflecting the transformational nature of BFL's
business profile," Standard & Poor's credit analyst Peter Sikora
said.  "S&P expects BFL's credit risk profile to improve over time
as it establishes its business base through growth of its loan
portfolio and re-enters the retail debenture market."

Other factors moderating S&P's assessment of BFL's stand-alone
credit profile include the company's concentrated funding profile
and uncertainty relating to its ability to re-establish its retail
debenture funding base under its new joint-venture structure, and
its modest absolute capital base.  Factors supporting BFL's stand-
alone credit profile include S&P's favourable view of the
company's business strategy and its measured growth plans, which
should help BFL effectively manage and limit its risk profile as
it expands its business and establishes its market position.

Mr. Sikora added: "The negative outlook recognizes pressures
across the wider Liberty group, particularly those relating to the
difficult operating environment that has challenged financial
institutions reliant on wholesale funding markets.  While S&P
believes that Liberty has so far contended with the difficult
operating environment better than some other companies, any
further market stresses may hurt Liberty's credit standing."

The BFL rating could come under pressure if the company became a
more material contingent liability on Liberty and, consequently,
S&P moderated its view of Liberty's credit profile.  BFL's credit
profile could come under pressure if the performance of its
financial assets deteriorates materially such that there is
insufficient excess income to absorb losses in the underlying
assets, or if this results in BFL bearing a material drop in
earnings or principal losses from these investments.  The
company's credit profile could also come under pressure if BFL
embarks on an aggressive asset-growth path that contributes to the
deterioration in its key financial metrics.  In addition, the
rating would be lowered if cover of the guarantee weakened or if
the guarantee was withdrawn.


LIFT CAPITAL: Administrators Reveal List of Creditors
-----------------------------------------------------
Lift Capital Pty Ltd. has revealed its creditors that include some
famous names in Australia, Vanda Carson at The Sydney Morning
Herald reports.

Ms. Carson says the Lift's creditors include:

   -- John Brakey, the Australian boss of the private equity firm
      Kohlberg Kravis Roberts;

   -- Gerald Dodgson, who sits one rank behind the boss of the
      government's debt agency, the Australian Office of Financial
      Management;

   -- Neil Swindells, the chief executive of the financial adviser
      IPAC;

   -- Tom Tsipris, the owner of Surf, Dive 'n' Ski;

   -- Adrien Whiddett, the former head of the National Crime
      Authority and former deputy commissioner of the Australian
      Federal Police;

   -- Melinda O'Rourke, the former Prada and Chanel executive; and

   -- the Canberra Raiders rugby league captain Alan Tongue.

According to the report, they are among the 676 creditors owed
about AU$100 million whose names and addresses were filed by Lift
Capital's administrators in the Federal Court in preparation for
finalizing a scheme of arrangement proposed by Merrill Lynch.

As part of the scheme, say the Herald, the group is set to receive
about 65c on the dollar late next month.  Creditors have until
March 1 to appeal against the fairness of the scheme, the report
notes.

The report says the administrator, Joseph Hayes of McGrathNicol,
is writing to all creditors to determine exactly how much each
will receive.

                         About Lift Capital

Lift Capital -- http://www.liftcapital.com.au/-- is an
Australian owned, independent (non-bank owned) financial
services provider, specializing in lending against structured
equity products principally against listed shares and  interests
in managed funds.  The company's products enable its clients to
borrow money to invest in a wide range of assets.  Lift Capital
may take a mortgage over these assets to secure the loan.

                             *     *     *

The Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific reported on April 14,
2008, that Lift Capital was placed under voluntary administration
after reports questioning its viability triggered a run of
investors wanting to liquidate their assets.  The administrators
will focus on gathering information to convey to creditors and
investors.

On November 12, 2008, Lift creditors resolved that Lift Capital
Partners Pty Limited and Lift Capital Nominees No. 1 Pty Limited
be wound up and Tony McGrath and Joseph Hayes were appointed Joint
Liquidators.


RAY GROUP: Receivers Called In to AU$1-Bln Development Project
--------------------------------------------------------------
Capital Finance Australia Ltd., a subsidiary of British bank
Lloyds, has called in loans associated with the $1 billion Salt
Village residential project on the northern NSW coast, sending
four project management and marketing companies of property firm
Ray Group into receivership, The Australian reports.

Accounting and insolvency firm Bentleys has been appointed as
receivers to four Ray Group companies -- South Kingscliff
Developments, Salt Developments, Kingscliff South and The
Kingscliff South Discretionary Trust

According to The Australian, Ray Group chief executive Tom Ray
said the companies had been placed in receivership following a
refusal by the development's financier, Capital Finance, to
advance funds for the continued development of the project, which
was about 90% complete.

The Australian says the appointment of receivers Bentleys to the
Ray companies, which have debts of AU$33 million, has put the rest
of the huge coastal development under a cloud.

A spokesman for Lloyds told The Australian that the appointment of
receivers was purely a commercial decision and the bank was
committed to the Australian market.  "The (bank's) property group
has been funding development in Australia for more than 15 years
and will continue to do so," he said.

The Australian relates Mr. Ray said the receivership did not
affect separate family companies which operate the Salt Village
commercial precinct.

Salt Village was being developed on 73ha of land, providing 1,500
homes.

GENERAL MOTORS: SAIC Acquires Additional Stake in Shanghai GM
-------------------------------------------------------------
SAIC Motor Corp. has won approval from the Chinese stock regulator
to acquire an additional 1% stake in its car venture with General
Motors, Shanghai Daily reports.

SAIC said in a statement filed with the Shanghai Stock Exchange
that it paid about US$85 million for the stake, which boosted its
total share in Shanghai GM to 51% and enables it to consolidate
the venture's accounts onto its balance sheet, the report says.

The deal, according to the Daily, would also give SAIC the right
to have an additional seat on Shanghai GM's board.  GM would also
have an option to buy back the stake later, the report notes.

GM and SAIC also agreed to set up a US$650 million joint venture
in Hong Kong, which will take over GM's India business.  The
venture will produce and sell small cars and minivans developed by
Chinese companies Shanghai GM and SAIC-GM-Wuling in India, which
is to start operation in the first quarter of this year.

SHANGHAI PUDONG: To Sell Strategic Shares to China Mobile
---------------------------------------------------------
Shanghai Pudong Development Bank will raise about CNY40 billion by
selling a roughly 20% strategic stake to China Mobile, Reuters
says citing a report from Guotai Junan Securities.

Reuters relates Guotai Junan Securities said Pudong Bank, part-
owned by Citigroup Inc., would sell about 2.2 billion shares to
China Mobile at no less than CNY17.82 each.

"The cooperation would help boost Pudong Bank's profitability and
is beneficial to the lender," Reuters cited Guotai Junan analyst
Wu Yonggang as saying in the report dated Feb. 25.

According to Reuters, Wu expects the fundraising to increase
Pudong Bank's core capital adequacy ratio by about four percentage
points to above 10%, while boosting its capital adequacy ratio to
nearly 14%.

SICHUAN CHANGHONG: Accused of Financial Fraud, Report Says
----------------------------------------------------------
China Daily, citing a report by the China Business News, says
Sichuan Changhong Electric Co., Ltd. has been falsifying its
financial reports for more than 10 years, and authorities have
begun looking into the case.

The Daily says one of the accusations is that the company invented
about CNY5 billion ($732.4 million) in sales.

The Daily relates that according to informants' report obtained by
the China Business News, Sichuan Changhong cheated in its 1998
financial report by listing CNY2.25 billion as trade acceptance,
as it stopped settling accounts through this kind of commercial
papers in 1992.

The informants said in their report that company duplicated sales
revenue of about CNY2 billion in January 1997 into its books for
1998, according to the Daily.  The company also failed to record
the full sum of losses into its account in 1998, the Daily adds.

Sichuan Changhong, however, denied the report, the Daily notes.

Based in China, Sichuan Changhong Electric Co., Ltd. (SHA:600839)
is engaged in the manufacture and distribution of household
appliances.  The Company primarily provides televisions, air
conditioners, audio/video products, digital products, kitchen and
bathroom products, digital set-top boxes, China Compulsory
Certification (3C) information products, business products,
refrigerators and others. The Company's kitchen and bathroom
products include electric fans, induction cookers, electric
warmers, rice cookers, water fountains, air cleaners, range hoods,

APEX ROLLER: CRISIL Rates INR75.00 Million Cash Credit at 'BB'
--------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its 'BB/Stable' rating to the cash credit
facility of Apex Roller Flour Mills (P) Ltd.

   Facilities                       Ratings
   ----------                       -------
   INR75.00 Million Cash Credit     BB/Stable (Assigned)

The rating reflects Apex's small scale of operations, and exposure
to intense competition, resulting in limited pricing power.  These
rating weaknesses are partially offset by the benefits that Apex
derives from its promoters' experience in the wheat products
industry.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that Apex will continue to benefit from the
industry experience of its promoters.  The outlook may be revised
to 'Positive' in case of a significant and sustained improvement
in Apex's profitability, or fresh large equity infusion into the
company, thereby increasing its net worth and financial risk
profile.  Conversely, the outlook may be revised to 'Negative' if
Apex is unable to maintain its profitability, or in case of fresh,
large, debt-funded capital expenditure, thereby adversely
affecting the company's financial risk profile.

                         About Apex Roller

Set up in 1975 by Mr. Mahaveer Jain, Coimbatore-based Apex
manufactures wheat products, such as flour and bran.  The company
has a production capacity of 36,000 tonnes per annum.  It sells
its products under the Chavee brand.

Apex reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR4 million on net
sales of INR477 million for 2008-09 (refers to financial year,
April 1 to March 31), against a PAT of INR3 million on net sales
of INR372 million for 2007-08.


BHAKTIMOYEE COLD: Delay in Loan Repayment Cues CRISIL Junk Ratings
------------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its 'D/P5' ratings to the bank facilities of
Bhaktimoyee Cold Storage Pvt Ltd.

   Facilities                          Ratings
   ----------                          -------
   INR36.10 Million Long-Term Loan     D (Assigned)
   INR25.40 Million Cash Credit        P5 (Assigned)
   INR3.50 Million Shot-Term Loan      P5 (Assigned)

The ratings reflect delay by BCSPL in servicing its debt
obligations; the delay has been caused by BCSPL's weak liquidity.

Set up in 1985 by Mr. Swapan Kumar Mondal and family, BCSPL is a
closely held company engaged in the potato storage, preservation,
trading, and processing business.  Its cold storage unit in
Tarkeshwar (Kolkata) has storage capacity of 152,028 quintals

BHOGI AGRO: CRISIL Assigns 'BB' Ratings on INR100MM Cash Credit
---------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its 'BB/Stable/P4+' ratings to the bank
facilities of Bhogi Agro Traders Pvt Ltd, which is part of the
Jayesh group.

   Facilities                             Ratings
   ----------                             -------
   INR100.0 Million Cash Credit           BB/Stable (Assigned)
   INR50.0 Million Letter of Credit       P4+ (Assigned)

The ratings reflect the Jayesh group's low profitability because
of intense competition in the refined oil trading business, and
revenue susceptibility to adverse changes in government
regulations.  The group has a weak financial risk profile marked
by large receivables and high gearing.  These weaknesses are
partially offset by the Jayesh group's established market
position, and adequate liquidity.

For arriving at its ratings, CRISIL has combined the business and
financial risk profiles of Jayesh and Bhogi Agro Traders Pvt Ltd,
together referred to as the Jayesh group.  This is because the
entities are engaged in the same business, have operational
linkages with each other, and are under common promoters.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that the Jayesh group will continue to benefit
from its promoters' industry experience and its healthy
relationships with customers and refiners.  The outlook may be
revised to 'Positive' if the group's net worth increases, and
financial risk profile strengthens.  Conversely, the outlook may
be revised to 'Negative' if the group's profitability declines
considerably, or liquidity deteriorates.

                          About the Group

The Jayesh group trades in RBD (refined, bleached, and deodorized)
palmolein oil.  The group is managed by the Shethia family, which
has been in this business for nearly three decades. Jayesh sources
RBD oil from established refiners, such as Gokul Refoils & Solvent
Ltd, Adani Willmar Ltd, Bunge India Pvt Ltd, and Ruchi Soya
Industries Ltd, and sells it through a network of dealers and
wholesalers.

The Jayesh group reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR6.6
million on net sales of INR2.4 billion for 2008-09 (refers to
financial year, April 1 to March 31), against a PAT of INR3.5
million on net sales of INR0.9 billion for 2007-08.  Bhogi
reported a PAT of INR3.2 million on net sales of INR696.1 million
for 2008-09, against a PAT of INR1.2 million on net sales of
INR343.6 million for 2007-08.


GOPIKRISHNA INFRASTRUCTURE: CRISIL Cuts Rating on Debt to 'C'

The downgrade reflects the recent instances of devolvement of
SGIPL's letter of credit facility, and the fact that its cash
credit facility has been overdrawn for more than 30 days because
of weak liquidity.

SGIPL began operations as a partnership firm, Sri Gopikrishna
Constructions, in 2005, and converted to a private limited company
in 2007-08 (refers to financial year, April 1 to March 31).  The
company erects and commissions 33 and 11 kilovolt (KV)
substations, lays high- and low-tension (HT and LT) distribution
lines under rural electrification programs, undertakes underground
power cabling, upgrades infrastructure, converts LT to HT lines,
and separates supply and distribution systems for agricultural and
residential purposes.

SGIPL reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR33 million on net
sales of INR818 million for 2008-09, as against a PAT of INR9.2
million on net sales of INR229 million for 2007-08.


HANUMAN AGRO: CRISIL Rates INR150 Mil. Cash Credit at 'B'
---------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its 'B+/Stable' rating to the bank facilities
of Hanuman Agro Industries Pvt Ltd.

   Facilities                       Ratings
   ----------                       -------
   INR150 Million Cash Credit*      B+/Stable (Assigned)

   * Interchangeable with letter of credit and Buyer's
     credit to the extent of INR130 million

The rating reflects Hanuman Agro's weak financial risk profile,
marked by high debt levels and weak debt protection measures, and
exposure to risks relating to a low net worth and small scale of
operations.  These weaknesses are partially offset by the benefits
that Hanuman Agro derives from its promoter's extensive experience
in the trading business.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that Hanuman Agro's credit risk profile will
continue to be constrained by its small scale of operations and
low net worth over the medium term.  The outlook may be revised to
'Positive' if Hanuman Agro improves its scale of operations while
maintaining its operating margin.  Conversely, the outlook may be
revised to 'Negative' if the company's reliance on debt increases,
or if its revenues and operating margin decline.

                         About Hanuman Agro

Incorporated in 1991 by Mr. Balwant Rai, Hanuman Agro trades in
plastic and petrochemical-related products.  The company's trading
product portfolio comprises ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA),
polyvinyl chloride (PVC) resin, paraffin wax, dicumyl peroxide
(DCP), plastic scraps, coir pith, and others.  The company
initially traded in agricultural commodities.  It began trading in
petrochemicals in 2000; in 2004, it changed its product mix and
began trading in EVA and other products.  Currently, the company
derives around 60 per cent of its revenues from trading in EVA.

Hanuman Agro reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR1.37 million
on net sales of INR317 million for 2008-09 (refers to financial
year, April 1 to March 31), against a PAT of INR1.68 million on
net sales of INR316 million for 2007-08.


K VENKATARAJU: Stressed Liquidity Cues CRISIL to Assign 'C' Rating
------------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its 'C/P4' ratings to the bank facilities of K
Venkataraju Engineers & Contractors.

   Facilities                       Ratings
   ----------                       -------
   INR70 Million Cash Credit        C (Assigned)
   INR200 Million Bank Guarantee    P4 (Assigned)

The ratings reflect KVEC's stressed liquidity, working-capital-
intensive operations, frequent delays in servicing of unrated
debt, exposure to revenue concentration risks, and small scale of
operations in the civil construction segment.  These weaknesses
are partially offset by the benefits that KVEC derives from its
moderate order book, and the promoters' industry experience.

Set up in June 2002 by Mr. T Kishan Kumar, Mr. Murali Mohan, Mr.
NVV Satyanarayana, Mr. T Poorna Chandra Rao, and Ms. Sridevi in
Vijayawada (Andhra Pradesh), KVEC undertakes civil construction
projects, including construction of bridges, road overbridges, and
flyovers in Tamil Nadu, Karnataka, and Andhra Pradesh.

KVEC reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR26 million on net
sales of INR396 million for 2008-09 (refers to financial year,
April 1 to March 31), against a PAT of INR13 million on net sales
of INR233 million for 2007-08.


KESHAV ELECTRICALS: CRISIL Assigns 'BB-' Rating on Cash Credit
--------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its 'BB-/Stable/P4+' ratings to Keshav
Electricals Pvt Ltd's bank facilities.

   Facilities                             Ratings
   ----------                             -------
   INR50.0 Million Cash Credit Limit      BB-/Stable (Assigned)
   INR5.0 Million Standby Line of Credit  BB-/Stable (Assigned)
   INR15.0 Million Bank Guarantee         P4+ (Assigned)

The ratings reflect Keshav Electrical's weak financial risk
profile, marked by large working capital requirements, and its
small net worth, and small scale of operations.  These rating
weaknesses are partially offset by Keshav Electrical's improving
business risk profile with increasing diversification in its
product profile.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL expects Keshav Electricals to continue to benefit from its
diversified product profile over the medium term; the financial
risk profile is, however, expected to remain weak because of large
working capital requirements.  The outlook maybe revised to
'Positive' if the promoters infuse funds into the company, leading
to improvement in its financial risk profile.  Conversely, the
outlook may be revised to 'Negative' if the company undertakes
aggressive debt-funded capital expenditure program, or its
profitability declines sharply, leading to deterioration in its
financial risk profile.

                      About Keshav Electricals

Incorporated in 1996, Keshav Electricals manufactures distribution
transformers in the range of 100 to 500 kilovolt ampere (kVA) and
cross-linked polyethylene cables used in power distribution.  In
2008-09 (refers to financial year, April 1 to March 31), the
company backward integrated its operations into copper and
aluminium wires, which are used to manufacture transformers.  The
company's plant situated in Jaipur (Rajasthan) has a monthly
capacity to manufacture 3000 transformers, 20 kilometres of cables
and 120 tonnes of wires.  It supplies transformers to various
electricity boards in Rajasthan, whereas cable and wires are
supplied to wire manufacturers and end users.

Keshav Electricals reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR3.0
million on net sales of INR303 million for 2008-09, against a PAT
of INR2.6 million on net sales of INR234 million for 2007-08.


KUMA STAINLESS: CRISIL Upgrades Ratings on Various Debts to 'BB'
----------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has upgraded its ratings on Kuma Stainless Tube Ltd's bank
facilities to 'BB/Positive/P4+' from 'B+/Stable/P4'.

   Facilities                             Ratings
   ----------                             -------
   INR55.0 Million Cash Credit Limit      BB/Positive (Upgraded
                                          from 'B+' ;Outlook
                                          revised from 'Stable')

   INR82.0 Million Long-Term Loan*        BB/Positive (Upgraded
                                          from 'B+' ;Outlook
                                          revised from 'Stable')

   INR290.0 Million Letter of Credit      P4+ (Upgraded from 'P4')

   * Includes proposed facility of INR1 million

The upgrade reflects Kuma's robust business performance in the
first nine months of 2009-10 (refers to financial year, April 1 to
March 31) and expected improvement in its financial risk profile
on the back of healthy cash accruals and improving debt protection
metrics. CRISIL believes that the impending acquisition of a
majority stake in Kuma by Maruichi Steel Tube Ltd (Maruichi) is
likely to improve Kuma's credit risk profile.  Kuma is expected to
benefit from the operational and financial support it is likely to
receive from Maruichi.

The ratings also reflect Kuma's large working capital
requirements, and moderate financial risk profile.  These
weaknesses are partially offset by Kuma's improved market position
in the stainless steel tubes segment, and high operating
efficiencies.

Outlook: Positive

CRISIL believes that the impending acquisition of a majority stake
in Kuma by Maruichi is likely to improve Kuma's credit risk
profile.  Kuma is expected to benefit from the operational and
financial support it is likely to receive from Maruichi.  The
rating may be upgraded once the benefits of the acquisition
translate into improvement in business performance and financial
metrics for Kuma.  Conversely, the outlook may be revised to
'Stable' if there is significant delay in the acquisition process,
or deterioration in Kuma's financial risk profile.

                        About Kuma Stainless

Kuma was incorporated in 2003 as a joint venture between Kusakabe
Electric & Machinery Company Ltd, Japan (Kusakabe; 44.44-per cent
stake), Gallium Industries Ltd (Gallium, a subsidiary of Kusakabe;
11.12-per cent stake), both tube mill manufacturers, and SKH
Metals Ltd (SKH Metals; 44.44-per cent stake), an automotive
exhaust manufacturer.  Kusakabe acquired SKH Metals' stake in Kuma
in September 2009 and subsequently also acquired Gallium's stake
in Kuma. Kusakabe currently holds a 100-per cent stake in Kuma,
and is in the process of selling 95 per cent of the stake to
Maruichi.  Kuma manufactures stainless steel and aluminised steel
tubes for automotive exhaust applications at its facility in
Gurgaon, Haryana.

Set up in 1947, Maruichi is a leading Japanese manufacturer of
electric welded steel tubes, primarily for the construction and
automotive industry.  Maruichi has 13 manufacturing facilities in
Japan; the company, through its subsidiaries, also has
manufacturing facilities in China, Indonesia, United States, and
Vietnam. Maruichi is listed on Tokyo Stock Exchange and Osaka

Kuma reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR13 million on net
sales of INR522 million for 2008-09, as against a PAT of INR23
million on net sales of INR350 million for 2007-08.


MAHABIR IMPEX: CRISIL Rates INR90 Mil. Cash Credit at 'BB+'
-----------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its 'BB+/Stable' rating to the cash credit
facility of Mahabir Impex Pvt Ltd, which is part of the KKN group.

  Facilities                      Ratings
  ----------                      -------
  INR90 Million Cash Credit       BB+/Stable (Assigned)

The rating reflects the KKN group's geographical concentration in
revenue profile, and large working capital requirements.  These
rating weaknesses are partially offset by the benefits that the
KKN group derives from the strong appeal of its Tripti brand in
the market.

For arriving at its rating, CRISIL has combined the business and
financial risk profiles of Mahabir, Cotwall Commerce Pvt Ltd, and
Grover Commerce Pvt Ltd.  This is because Cotwall, Mahabir, and
Grover, collectively referred to as the KKN group, have a common
management, are in similar lines of business, and sell their
products under a common brand, Tripti.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that the KKN group will maintain its market
position over the medium term. The outlook may be revised to
'Positive' if the group's financial risk profile improves
significantly, most likely because of equity infusion by the
promoters.  Conversely, the outlook may be revised to 'Negative'
if the KKN group reports sluggish growth in revenues and
profitability, or undertakes large, debt-funded acquisition.

                          About the Group

Mahabir, the flagship company of the KKN group, was acquired by
Mr. Kaushik Kumar Nath in 2000.  Mahabir trades in edible oil,
tea, and spices; around 70 per cent of its revenues are derived
from the sale of edible oil.  The company's products are sold
under the Tripti brand.  It has around 200 distributors across
West Bengal.  The company also sells its products through retail
outlets. Set up in 1995,  Cotwall was acquired by Mr. Nath in
2003. The company has, since inception, traded in tea.  It began
trading in edible oils in 2007-08 (refers to financial year, April
1 to March 31), and in pulses, spices, rice, atta, and maida, in
2008-09. Grover, acquired by Mr. Nath in 2001, trades in tea.

The KKN group reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR6.5 million
on net sales of INR869 million for 2008-09, against a PAT of
INR4.2 million on net sales of INR632 million for 2007-08.


MAHARASHTRA ALDEHYDES: CRISIL Rates INR70MM Cash Credit at 'B+'
---------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its 'B+/Stable/P4' ratings to Maharashtra
Aldehydes and Chemicals Ltd's bank facilities.

   Facilities                           Ratings
   ----------                           -------
   INR70.0 Million Cash Credit *        B+/Stable (Assigned)
   INR45.8 Million Long-Term Loan       B+/Stable (Assigned)
   INR13.5 Million Letter of Credit     P4 (Assigned)

   * Includes export packing credit and bill discounting sub-limit
     of INR20.0 million.

The ratings reflect MACL's high gearing, weak liquidity, and
exposure to intense competition in the diethyl phthalate chemical
industry.  These rating weaknesses are partially offset by MACL's
stable operating margin, and well-established relationships with
key customers.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that MACL's financial risk profile to remain
constrained, owing to high gearing and stretched liquidity. The
outlook may be revised to 'Negative' if MACL reports lower-than-
expected cash accruals, or if there is an increase in its working
capital requirements and debt level, thereby adversely affecting
its financial risk profile.  Conversely, the outlook may be
revised to 'Positive' if the company improves its profitability,
or posts higher-than-expected internal accruals, resulting in
improvement in its financial risk profile.

                     About Maharashtra Aldehydes

Set up in 1983 as a closely held public limited company, MACL is a
part of the Goenka group, which has established market position in
paper trading, chemical manufacturing, and education sectors.

the production of perfumes and incense sticks.  MACL has an
established customer base, including N. Rangarao & Sons (of the
Cycle brand incense sticks), with which it has been doing business
for more than eight years.  In 2008-09 (refers to financial year,
April 1 to March 31), MACL also started contract manufacturing of
Thione, used for manufacturing anti-dandruff shampoos.

MACL reported a net loss of INR0.1 million on net sales of
INR234.5 million for 2008-09, against a profit after tax of INR1.9
million on net sales of INR217.0 million for 2007-08.


MEGA RUBBER: CRISIL Places 'BB+' Rating on INR50MM Rupee Term Loan
------------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its ratings of 'BB+/Stable/P4+' to Mega Rubber
Technologies Pvt Ltd's bank facilities.

   Facilities                          Ratings
   ----------                          -------
   INR90.0 Million Cash Credit         BB+/Stable (Assigned)
   INR50.0 Million Rupee Term Loan     BB+/Stable (Assigned)
   INR15.0 Million Letter of Credit    P4+ (Assigned)

The ratings reflect MRTPL's small scale of operations in the
rubber components industry restricting company's financial
flexibility and exposure to risks related to fluctuations in raw
material prices.  These weaknesses are partially offset by MRTPL's
above-average financial risk profile and established customer
base.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that MRTPL will maintain its moderate capital
structure and satisfactory debt protection measures over the
medium term.  The outlook maybe revised to 'Positive' if the
company materially scales up its operations while maintaining its
stable profitability.  Conversely, the outlook maybe revised to
'Negative' if MRTPL undertakes a large, debt-funded capex
programme leading to a significant weakening of its capital
structure, or if there is a decline in its profitability,
resulting in considerable deterioration of its debt protection
measures.

                         About Mega Rubber

MRTPL, incorporated in 1996, is part of the Sujan group of
companies.  The promoters include members, friends and relatives
of the Sujan family.  The company manufactures rubber-moulded and

sales of INR358.7 million for 2007-08.


PINAX STEEL: CRISIL Assigns 'BB+' Ratings on Various Bank Debts
---------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its 'BB+/Stable/P4+' ratings to the bank
facilities of Pinax Steel Industries Pvt Ltd.

   Facilities                             Ratings
   ----------                             -------
   INR55 Million Cash Credit              BB+/Stable (Assigned)
   INR26 Million Term Loan                BB+/Stable (Assigned)
   INR28.30 Million Proposed LT Loan      BB+/Stable (Assigned)
   INR8.2 Million Standby Line of Credit  P4+ (Assigned)
   INR2.5 Million Bank Guarantee          P4+ (Assigned)

The ratings reflect Pinax's moderate financial risk profile, small
scale of operations, and its marginal market share and exposure to
cyclicality in the steel industry.  These weaknesses are partially
offset by Pinax's moderate operating efficiency and backward-
integrated operations.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that Pinax will maintain a stable business risk
profile over the medium term, supported by its operating
efficiency.  The outlook may be revised to 'Positive' if the
company's financial profile and net worth improve substantially.
Conversely, the outlook may be revised to 'Negative' if Pinax's
operating margin declines because of low capacity utilization, or
if it contracts large debt to fund capital expenditure leading to
deterioration in its financial profile.

                        About Pinax Steels

Incorporated as Pinax Steels Pvt Ltd in October 1995, Pinax
acquired its current name in 1996.  The company is promoted by
Mr. Sanjay Kumar Khemka and his family.  The Patna-based company

Pinax reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR2.8 million on
operating income of INR288 million for 2008-09 (refers to
financial year, April 1 to March 31), against a PAT of INR3.4
million on operating income of INR142 million for 2007-08.


PLATINUM PROPERTIES: Weak Liquidity Cues CRISIL Junk Ratings
------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its 'D' rating to the cash credit facility of
Platinum Properties Pvt Ltd.  The rating reflects delay in loan
servicing by Platinum; the delay has been caused by weak
liquidity.

   Facilities                       Ratings
   ----------                       -------
   INR100.00 Million Cash Credit    D (Assigned)

Set up in 2005, Platinum is developing Anthem Vistas, a projecst
consisting of 73 residential units, 22 kilometres away from
Secunderabad (Andhra Pradesh). Platinum is owned by two groups:
the Ambience group, promoted by Mr. M P Agarwall, Mr. P K
Agrawall, and Mr. L K Agarwal, and the Ravi group, promoted by Mr.
Anand Agarwal and Mr. R K Agarwal (promoters of Ravi Foods Pvt
Ltd, rated 'BBB-/Stable/P3' by CRISIL).


PRATHAMESH CERAMICS: CRISIL Reaffirms 'B-' Rating on INR283MM Loan
------------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has reaffirmed its ratings of 'B-/Negative' to the various
bank facilities of Prathamesh Ceramics Pvt Ltd.


   Facilities                       Ratings
   ----------                       -------
   INR283 Million Long Term Loan    B-/Negative (Reaffirmed)
   INR40 Million Cash Credit        B-/Negative (Reaffirmed)

The rating reflects the significant delay in the implementation of
PCPL's project, and its likely impact on the company's debt
servicing ability.  The rating is further constrained by the
limited experience of PCPL's promoters in the insulator business,
and the company's exposure to product offtake and revenue
concentration risks. These weaknesses are, however, partially
offset by the favorable business prospects for the insulator
industry.

Outlook: Negative

CRISIL believes that Prathamesh Ceramics Pvt. Ltd.'s credit
profile will continue to be constrained due to its delay in the
commencement of its commercial production.  The outlook may be
revised to 'Stable' if the company is able to commence its
commercial production without any further delays and generate
adequate cash accruals to meet its obligations and also improve
the company's financial profile and risk structure. Conversely,
the outlook may be downgraded in case of any delays to service its
maturing debt obligations.

                      About Prathamesh Ceramics

PCPL was incorporated in 2006 by Mr. Nitin Wagaskar and Mr.
Prakash Wagaskar.  The company is in the process of setting up a
plant at Lakhmapur in Nashik (Maharashtra), to manufacture

likely to have an annual capacity of 4100 tonnes. The total
capital expenditure estimated for this project is INR614 milllion.


S R FOILS: CRISIL Assigns 'BB-' Rating on INR500MM Term Loan
------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its 'BB-/Stable/P4+' ratings to the bank
facilities of S R Foils and Tissues Ltd.

   Facilities                                Ratings
   ----------                                -------
   INR500 Million Cash Credit Facility       BB-/Stable (Assigned)
   INR400 Million Term Loan Facility         BB-/Stable (Assigned)
   INR430 Million Letter of Credit Facility  P4+ (Assigned)
   INR20 Million Bank Guarantee Facility     P4+ (Assigned)

The ratings reflect SRFTL's constrained liquidity, aggressive
capital expenditure (capex) plans, and large working capital
requirements.  These rating weaknesses are partially offset by the
company's established position in the branded aluminium foils and
paper tissues market, and its promoters' experience in the
industry.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that SRFTL will maintain its business risk profile
over the medium term on the back of its established market
position backed by strong brands, and good relationships with
customers.  However, the company's financial risk profile is
likely to deteriorate, as the company is planning debt-funded
capex.  The outlook may be revised to 'Positive' in case of a
higher-than-expected improvement in the company's profitability,
or if there is fresh, large, equity infusion into the company,
resulting in improvement in its financial risk profile.
Conversely, the outlook may be revised to 'Negative' in case of
steep deterioration in SRFTL's operating margin or capital
structure.

                          About S R Foils

Incorporated in 1993, SRFTL, formerly SR Foils Ltd, manufactures
aluminium foils (brand Homefoil), cling film rolls (Clean Wrap),
and tissue paper products (Mistique).  The company has two

reported a profit after tax of INR95.9 million (INR39.5 million
for 2007-08) on net sales of INR1.43 billion (INR904.8 million).


SALVI CHEMICAL: CRISIL Assigns 'BB' Rating on INR57MM Term Loan
---------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its ratings of 'BB/Stable/P4+' to the bank
facilities of Salvi Chemical Industries Ltd (SCIL, part of the
Salvi Chemical group).

   Facilities                       Ratings
   ----------                       -------
   INR60.0 Million Cash Credit      BB/Stable (Assigned)
   INR57.0 Million Term Loan        BB/Stable (Assigned)
   INR195.0 Million Letter of       P4+ (Assigned)
                Credit Facility
   INR0.5 Million Bank Guarantee    P4+ (Assigned)

The ratings reflect Salvi Chemical group's modest financial risk
profile marked by small size of net worth and moderate debt
protection measures coupled with exposure to risks related to
delayed realization.  These weaknesses are partially offset by the
extensive experience of the group's promoters in the
pharmaceutical industry.

For arriving at the ratings, CRISIL has combined the business and
financial risk profiles of SCIL and M/s Nutracare International,
collectively referred to, herein, as the Salvi Chemical group.
This is because both entities are under a common management and in
similar lines of business.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that the Salvi Chemical group will maintain a
stable business risk profile over the near term, backed by the
promoter's extensive experience in the pharmaceuticals formulation
industry.  The outlook may be revised to 'Positive' if the group
reports a higher-than-expected increase in profitability,
supported by a substantial improvement in its debt protection
metrics.  Conversely, the outlook may be revised to 'Negative' if
the group's debt protection measures deteriorate because of lower-
than-expected growth in operating revenues, or if it faces time or
cost overruns in its ongoing expansion project.

                          About the Group

SCIL was set up as a partnership firm in 1978 by Mr. Kantilal
Salvi and his family members.  In 2005-06 (refers to financial
year, April 1 to March 31), the firm was incorporated into a
closely held public limited company with Mr. Kantilal Salvi and
his sons, Mr. Nirav Salvi and Mr. Kaushal Salvi, as the key
management personnel.  The company manufactures chemical and
pharmaceutical products. SCIL has its registered office in Mumbai

SATHYASREE DEVELOPERS: CRISIL Cuts Ratings on INR80MM Loan to 'D'
-----------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has downgraded its rating on Sathyasree Developers Pvt
Ltd's long-term loan to 'D' from 'B/Negative'.

   Facilities                         Ratings
   ----------                         -------
   INR80.0 Million Long-Term Loan     D (Downgraded from
                                        'B/Negative')

The downgrade reflects delay by SDPL in repayment of its term loan
obligations; the delay was driven by the company's stretched
liquidity because of the slowdown in the real estate sector, and
lower-than-expected bookings for residential flats in the
company's project.

Set up in April 2007 by Mr. J Chandrashekhar, Mr. R Durgaram, and
Mr. Arun Vijaay Malli, SDPL is developing Satya Elite, a
residential apartments project, in Madurai (Tamil Nadu); the
project comprises 92 flats, with a total built up area of 155,222
square feet at a total cost of INR440 million.  The promoters have
15 years of experience in the development and construction of
residential apartments. Mr. Chandrashekhar and Mr. Durgaram, also
run construction companies in their individual capacities in
Bengaluru and Madurai, respectively.


SATYAM ISPAT: Delays in Loan Repayment Cues CRISIL Junk Ratings
---------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its ratings of 'D/P5' to Satyam Ispat (North-
East) Ltd's bank facilities.  The ratings reflect delay by SINEL
in repayment of term loan obligations, owing to weak liquidity.

   Facilities                       Ratings

SUPREME ALLOYS: CRISIL Places 'BB+' Rating on INR210MM Bank Debt
----------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its ratings of 'BB+/Stable/P4+' to Supreme
Alloys Ltd's bank facilities.

   Facilities                             Ratings
   ----------                             -------
   INR210.0 Million Overdraft Facility    BB+/Stable (Assigned)
   INR140.0 Million Working Capital       BB+/Stable (Assigned)
                        Demand Loan
   INR70.0 Million Bank Guarantee         P4+ (Assigned)

The ratings reflect SAL's exposure to the cyclical steel industry,
volatility in raw material prices, and moderate financial risk
profile.  These rating weaknesses are partially offset by the
benefits that SAL derives from its promoters' experience in the
steel business and revenue visibility, led by agreement with Steel
Authority of India Ltd.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that SAL's business risk profile will remain
stable, backed by strong revenue visibility led by its agreement
with SAIL.  The outlook may be revised to 'Positive' if SAL is
able to obtain new contracts from SAIL leading to stabilization of
new capacities, high profitability, and improved debt protection
measures.  Conversely, the outlook may be revised to 'Negative' if
SAL undertakes significant debt-funded capital expenditure,
leading to deterioration in the company's capital structure; or in
case high volatility in steel prices leads to a decline in profit
margins for the company.

                       About Supreme Alloys

SAL, promoted by the Arora family, manufactures steel ingots and
thermo-mechanically treated (TMT) bars and has production
facilities at Ghaziabad (Uttar Pradesh). Currently, the company
has a combined furnace and rolling mill capacity of around 160,000
tonnes per annum (TPA). The company is closely held by the Arora
family and is currently being managed by Mr. Jagjiv Kumar Arora
and his son, Mr. Sahil Arora.

SAL reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR31.2 million on net
sales of INR1983.9 million for 2008-09 (refers to financial year,
April 1 to March 31), as against a PAT of INR19.4 million on net
sales of INR1529.7 million for 2007-08.


V.S. STEEL: CRISIL Assigns 'B' Rating on INR63.5M Cash Credit
-------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its 'B/Stable/P4' ratings to the bank
facilities of V.S. Steel.

   Facilities                          Ratings
   ----------                           -------
   INR63.5 Million Cash Credit          B/Stable (Assigned)
   INR65.0 Million Rupee Term Loan      B/Stable (Assigned)
   INR30.0 Million Letter of Credit     P4 (Assigned)

The ratings reflect V.S. Steel's exposure to risks relating to its
limited track record and to intense competition and cyclicality in
the steel industry, and its weak financial risk profile.  These
weaknesses are partially offset by the financial support that V.S.
Steel derives from its promoters.

Outlook: Stable3

CRISIL believes that V.S. Steel's promoters will provide need-
based financial support to the firm during its expansion phase.
The outlook may be revised to 'Positive' in case of more-than-
expected increase in the firm's revenues and profitability.
Conversely, the outlook may be revised to 'Negative' in case of
lower-than-expected capacity utilization, or if the firm
undertakes any significant debt-funded capital expenditure
programme, or in case of significant withdrawal of capital by the
partners.

                         About V.S. Steel

V.S. Steel, a partnership firm, manufactures mild steel (MS)
ingots.  The firm is promoted by Mr. R Srinivasan and his brother,

treated (TMT) rolling mill by March 2012.

-------------------------------------------
Best Denki Co. Ltd. plans to cut about 1,000 jobs, or nearly 20%
of its workforce, by soliciting early retirements and curbing new

citing sources close to the matter.

According to the report, the plan is in line with its
restructuring policy announced in January under which it will
close 50 to 70 of its 570 group outlets over the next two years.

Best Denki has already said it will liquidate Tokyo-based
subsidiary Sakuraya Co by the end of February and will in
principle dismiss all of its 450 employees, the report notes.

CAFES 4: Moody's Reviews Ratings on Various Classes of Notes
------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has downgraded the ratings for the Class
A through D and X trust certificates issued by Cafes 4.  The final
maturity of the trust certificates will take place in November
2011.

The individual rating actions are listed below.

  -- Class A, downgraded to A3 from Aa2; previously, Aa2 placed
     under review for possible downgrade on January 14, 2010

  -- Class B, downgraded to Ba1 from A3; previously, A3 placed
     under review for possible downgrade on January 14, 2010

  -- Class C, downgraded to B1 from Baa3; previously, Baa3 placed
     under review for possible downgrade on January 14, 2010

  -- Class D, downgraded to Caa2 from B1; previously, B1 placed
     under review for possible downgrade on January 14, 2010

  -- Class X, downgraded to A3 from Aa2; previously, Aa2 placed
     under review for possible downgrade on January 14, 2010

  -- Cafes 4, effected in July 2008, represents the securitization
     of a non-recourse loan and cash.

The loan had defaulted in October 2009 and has been placed into
collections by the special servicer.

The underlying property is an office/retail building in central
Tokyo.  The occupancy rate has dropped to 70% because the previous
asset manager's operating policy resulted in the eviction of some
of the tenants.

Moody's had placed the ratings on review for possible downgrade
due to growing concerns about further recovery stress on disposal
prices, as the property's fundamental profitability after
defaulting has deteriorated more than estimated in the previous
rating actions in June 2009.

Moody's received the latest PM reports and appraisal report from
the servicer and questioned the special servicer about its leasing
activities and strategies, its recovery policy, and the likelihood
that the loan would be paid down in full.

As a result of the hearing, the special servicer is planning to
find tenants at far more lower rents than estimated by Moody's
because its recovery activities require a resolution of the issue
of the fall in the occupancy rate, as mentioned, and a rise in the
property's cash flow.

Having reconsidered the recovery stress on the property disposal,
Moody's has changed its average rent estimates to the level of
current asking rents, resulting in cash flow 40% lower than in its
initial assumption.

Following the review, the estimated recovery stress on the
property has been re-assessed at 45% less than the initial value.

This rating action reflects Moody's growing concerns regarding the
likelihood of collateral recovery, according to the property's re-
assessed value.

JLOC 39: Fitch Downgrades Ratings on Four Classes of Notes
----------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has downgraded JLOC 39 Trust's class C and D trust
beneficiary interests due April 2014, and affirmed class A and B
TBIs.  Full details of the rating actions are:

  -- JPY19.69 billion* Class A TBIs affirmed at 'AA'; Outlook
     Stable;

  -- JPY5.4 billion* Class B TBIs affirmed at 'BBB+'; Outlook
     Negative;

  -- JPY3.9 billion* Class C TBIs downgraded to 'B-' from 'BB';
     Outlook Negative; and

  -- JPY2.2 billion* Class D TBIs downgraded to 'CCC' from 'B-';
     assigned a Recovery Rating of 'RR6'.

  * as of February 25, 2010

Fitch has downgraded class C and D TBIs reflecting a further
downward revision of the value of the largest property in the
transaction's portfolio, which is an office building in Tokyo.  At
the time of Fitch's previous rating action in October 2009, it was
noted that the property faces low occupancy following the
departure of a major tenant in March 2009.  Though a new tenant
had moved in to take up a portion of the space, the rental rate of
the new contract was lower than expected, which resulted in a
downward revision of the property valuation.  The agency has
revised the property valuation downwards again, due to the
acceptance of a further reduction in rental levels, as requested
by an existing tenant and under a new rental contract.

Fitch has affirmed class A and B TBIs reflecting increased credit
enhancement levels to date.  Although Fitch revised the largest
property's valuation downwards, one underlying loan has been fully
repaid and many properties have been disposed of since the
previous rating action, with proceeds being allocated on a
sequential basis.  However, the agency has maintained a Negative
Outlook on the Class B TBIs due to the uncertainty surrounding the
disposition activities for one liquidation-type underlying loan.

This transaction is a securitization of Tokutei Mokuteki Kaisha
specified bonds and non-recourse loans issued by or extended to a
total of 10 borrowers.  At closing, these underlying assets were
ultimately secured by 34 commercial real estate properties.  To
date, two underlying loans have been fully repaid and partial
prepayments have occurred mainly due to the disposition of
collateral properties.  The transaction is currently backed by 12
commercial real estate properties.

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

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

BROADLANDS FINANCE: S&P Assigns 'BB-/B' Counterparty Credit Rating
------------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it had assigned its
'BB-/B' counterparty credit rating to the New Zealand finance
company Broadlands Finance Ltd.  The outlook on Broadlands is
negative.

"The ratings on Broadlands reflect the company's vulnerable
liquidity, with more than half of its outstanding retail
debentures maturing in the coming 12 months, and its cash position
in part hinging on the collections from its higher-risk consumer
loan portfolio", said Gavin Gunning, credit analyst with Standard
& Poor's.  "This said, Broadlands has a fairly diversified
debenture investor base, and the company's sole shareholder has a
track record of providing liquidity support to it where
necessary."

Although Broadlands' credit-loss experience has been fairly well
managed to date, the credit profile is moderated by the higher-
risk nature of the company's loan-receivables portfolio, which
exhibits a high level of loan arrears.  Broadlands' funding base
relies heavily on its single shareholder, in the form of debts as
well as equity, and its business profile also links to the
experience and connections of the shareholder.  Favorable features
of Broadlands' credit profile include the company's good interest
margins and capital-adequacy ratio, which provide good capacity
for absorbing materially higher credit losses.

"The negative rating outlook incorporates the uncertainty around
Broadlands' ability to manage its liquidity position through 2010?
stemming from changes to New Zealand's deposit-guarantee scheme
and the imposition of other regulatory requirements on New Zealand
nonbank deposit-taking companies?and an expectation that
profitability may come under pressure from some contraction in
interest margins and potentially higher credit costs," said Mr.
Gunning.  Further explicit support for Broadlands from its
shareholder, however, could contribute to upwards rating momentum,
or, at a minimum, greater ratings rigidity at the current rating
level.

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.
