LIBERTY FUNDING: Fitch Affirms Ratings on All Classes of Notes
--------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed all classes of notes issued by Liberty
Funding Pty Ltd in respect of the Liberty PRIME Series 2009-1
Trust.  The rating actions are:

  -- AUD25,825,683 Class A-2 affirmed at 'AAAsf'; Outlook Stable;
     Loss Severity Rating 'LS-1';

  -- AUD283,000,000 Class A-3 affirmed at 'AAAsf'; Outlook Stable;
     Loss Severity Rating 'LS-1';

  -- AUD37,800,000 Class AB affirmed at 'AAAsf'; Outlook Stable;
     Loss Severity Rating revised to 'LS-1' from 'LS-2';.

  -- AUD8,400,000 Class B affirmed at 'AAsf'; Outlook Stable; Loss
     Severity Rating 'LS-3';

  -- AUD8,400,000 Class C affirmed at 'Asf'; Outlook Stable; Loss
     Severity Rating 'LS-3';

  -- AUD8,400,0000 Class D affirmed at 'BBBsf'; Outlook Stable;
     Loss Severity Rating 'LS-3'; and

  -- AUD3,000,000 Class E affirmed at 'BBsf'; Outlook Stable; Loss
     Severity Rating 'LS-4'.

The ratings of all classes have been affirmed as the transaction
has performed as expected and is expected to continue to do so.
The transaction is well subordinated at each rating level and the
credit reserve, which provides an additional level of credit
enhancement to the transaction, has now reached the upper limit of
AUD6m via sufficient excess contributions at each payment date.

"No realised losses and a steady rise in credit enhancement have
been notable features of the transaction since closing.  The
increase in subordination comes from two primary sources: excess
being distributed to the credit reserve; and the paydown of the
transaction," notes Spencer Wilson, Analyst in Fitch's Structured
Finance team.

The transaction has not suffered any losses to date, despite a
steady deterioration in the performance of the pool in terms of
30+ day arrears, which have increased throughout 2010 to 2.86% as
at July 31, 2010.  As of the last payment date, the subordination
percentage has increased substantially, compared to that at
closing, with the Class A-1 note paid in full and the reserve
account standing at the upper limit of AUD6 million.  Scheduled
and unscheduled payments have averaged 25.8% throughout the life
of the transaction.

CITIBANK NA: Moody's Assigns Ratings on Three Unfunded Swaps
------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has assigned these definitive ratings to
the three unfunded credit default swaps between Citibank N.A.,
acting through its London Branch, and Terra II Mezzanine CLO LLC,
a limited liability company organized under the laws of the State
of Delaware:

-- Aa3 (sf) to a EUR136,500,000 Credit Derivative Transaction
    (Reference No. 1680) (Class B1), in which the SPV provides
    credit protection to Citibank on a 18% to 25% tranche of the
    reference portfolio

-- A3 (sf) to a EUR68,250,000 Credit Derivative Transaction
    (Reference No. 1681) (Class B2), in which the SPV provides
    credit protection to Citibank on a 14.5% to 18% tranche of the
    reference portfolio

-- Ba3 (sf) to a EUR87,750,000 Credit Derivative Transaction
    (Reference No. 1682) (Class B3), in which the SPV provides
    credit protection to Citibank on a 10% to 14.5% tranche of the
    reference portfolio

The Moody's ratings measure the risk on an expected loss basis
that the credit protection provider will be required to make
payments in respect of credit events under the terms of the
transaction.  The ratings also address any premiums due but not
paid by the protection buyer, up until an early termination date,
if any.  The ratings do not address potential losses resulting
from an early termination of the transaction, nor any market risk
associated with the transaction.

Class B1, B2, and B3 are CDS referencing the same replenishable
portfolio of corporate loans.  The portfolio is currently, and is
expected to remain, the same as the portfolio referenced by Class
A notes issued by Terra II Senior CLO Ltd. in April 2010.

The reference portfolio consists of senior secured and unsecured
obligations of corporate borrowers in mostly Asian and other
emerging countries.  These obligations arise out of bilateral and
agented or syndicated credit agreements originated by Citibank and
its affiliates.

As of the closing date, the credit risk transferred by Citibank
amounts to a portfolio of EUR3 billion in total, scheduled to
terminate in March 2015.  The Class B1, B2, and B3 CDS transfer
the mezzanine risk, with an attachment point and detachment point
at 18% and 25%, 14.5% and 18%, and 10% and 14.5% respectively, of
the portfolio to the SPV.  The SPV will be responsible for making
good 65% of the credit losses exceeding the attachment point, and
will make credit protection payments amounting to no more than a
total of EUR292.5 million under the respective CDS.

Moody's notes that the three CDS are structured to have some
buffer for future replenishments or portfolio deterioration.  The
model outputs for Class B1, B2, and B3 CDS correspond to Aa1, A2,
and Ba1 respectively, higher than the respective assigned ratings,
based on the reference portfolio at the end of May 2010.

Credit events according to the CDS are defined as bankruptcy,
failure to pay, and restructuring.

Losses on each defaulted obligation will be based on the actual
recovery amount received for the principal for the defaulted
obligation.  Any workouts will be conducted by Citibank in a
manner applicable to any credit exposures similar to the relevant
reference obligation, irrespective of its inclusion in the
portfolio.  The workout will continue until it is formally
concluded or the reference obligation is sold.

The occurrence of a credit event and the compliance of a defaulted
obligation with the eligibility criteria, as well as the
computation of any losses, will be verified by the verification
agent.

Analysis

Moody's initially analyzed and now monitors this transaction using
primarily the methodology and its supplements for corporate
synthetic CDOs as described in Moody's Rating Methodology Report
below:

  -- Moody's Approach to Rating Corporate Collateralized Synthetic
     Obligations (September 2009)

The main drivers of Moody's analysis of this transaction are:

1.  The credit quality of the entities in the portfolio: The
    average modeled default probability of the portfolio of 9.32%
    for the 4.6-year time to scheduled termination date, based
    mostly on a mapping between Citibank's internal rating scale
    and Moody's rating scale

2.  The average assumed mean for Moody's recovery rate for the
    portfolio: 28.63% (based on the end of May 2010 portfolio)

3.  Correlation in the portfolio: The simulated default
    distribution corresponds to an assumed weighted-average pair-
    wise asset correlation of 4.74% (based on the end of May 2010
    portfolio)

4.  An attachment point and a detachment point for each of the
    three CDS as well as the SPV's responsibility to cover 65% of
    the loss between their respective attachment points and
    detachment points

5.  A low rating linkage to the credit quality of Citibank being
    the credit protection buyer who is obligated to pay periodic
    premiums to the SPV until the transaction terminates

At the end of May 2010, the portfolio comprised 854 reference
obligations by 713 corporate reference entities.  The major asset
types were senior unsecured loans (more than 90%).  The top three
industries in the initial reference portfolio were Beverage, Food
& Tobacco (7.93%); Chemicals, Plastics, & Rubber (7.85%); and
Energy: Oil & Gas (6.78%).

In terms of geographical diversification, 40.76% of the portfolio
is concentrated in Asia Pacific, 15.05% in South America, 13.61%
in Central America, and the rest in Europe, Middle East, Africa,
India, and Russia.  The top five countries are Australia (9.46%),
India (8.00%), Brazil (7.62%), Mexico (7.56%), and South Korea
(7.45%).

Only a small portion of the reference portfolio has public
ratings.  For the remaining portfolio, the credit quality of each
reference entities is assessed based on a credit mapping between
Citibank's internal rating scale and Moody's public rating scale,
last updated in early 2010.  The end of May 2010 reference
portfolio has a weighted-average rating factor of around 1056,
which corresponds to a Ba1/Ba2 rating.

Moody's CDOROM(TM) was used to measure the potential loss incurred
by noteholders.  Moody's CDOROM(TM) is a Monte Carlo simulation
that takes Moody's default probabilities as input.  Each obligor
is modelled individually, with a standard multi-factor model
incorporating intra- and inter-industry correlations.  The
correlation structure is based on a Gaussian copula.  In each
Monte Carlo scenario, defaults are simulated.

                             V Score

The V Score for this transaction indicates Medium/High uncertainty
about critical assumptions.  This is in line with the Medium/High
score for both the Corporate Synthetic CDO Sector.  The V Score
for this transaction is driven by a high level uncertainty of
sector performance variability; medium/high level uncertainty in
assessing the portfolio credit quality (which is estimated based
on credit mapping without knowing the exact credit quality of any
individual name); and a medium level uncertainty of the alignment
of interests since the rationale for transaction is for balance
sheet management; as well as other factors.

                      Parameter Sensitivities

Moody's also ran sensitivities for key parameters for the three
CDS.  For instance:

-- if the assumed weighted average default rate of 9.32% used in
    determining the initial rating were changed to 11.05%, the
    model output for the Class B1 CDS would remains at Aa3, but
    the Class B2 CDS would change from A3 to Baa2, and Class B3
    CDS would change from Ba3 to B1.

-- if the assumed weighted average default rate of 9.32% used in
    determining the initial rating were changed to 12.91%, the
    model output for the Class B1 CDS would change from Aa3 toA2,
    the Class B2 CDS would change from A3 to Ba1, and Class B3 CDS
    would change from Ba3 to B3.

-- if the assumed weighted average recovery rate of 28.63% were
    changed to 20%, the model output for all the Class B1, B2, and
    B3 CDS would sustain a Aa3, A3, and Ba3.

-- if the assumed weighted average recovery rate of 28.63% were
    changed to 10%, the model output for the Class B1 CDS would
    change from Aa3 toA1, the Class B2 CDS would change from A3 to
    Baa3, and Class B3 CDS would change from Ba3 to B1.

Moody's will monitor these ratings.  Any change in these ratings
will be publicly disseminated by Moody's through normal print and
electronic media in accordance with Moody's standard practice at
the time.

SURINA IMPEX: Fitch Assigns 'B' National Long-Term Rating
---------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has assigned India's Surina Impex Pvt. Ltd. a
National Long-term rating of 'B(ind)' with a Stable Outlook.  The
agency has also assigned ratings to Surina's bank loans:

  -- INR106 million long-term loans: 'B(ind)';

  -- INR124 million fund-based working capital limits:
     'B(ind)'/'F4(ind)'; and

  -- INR21.7 million non-fund based working capital limits:
     'F4(ind)'.

The ratings reflect Surina's small scale of operations, an initial
delay in the setting up of its fabric knitting facility,
volatility of its key raw materials prices (i.e. cotton yarn), a
partial completion of its project till date, and limited
experience of its management in manufacturing and executing
projects.

The ratings, however, benefit from the past experience of Surina's
promoters in the trading and export of textiles, fabrics,
garments, etc, group support from other companies under the same
management, and the start of its commercial operations (i.e.
trading in textiles, and partial start of knitting facilities) in
FY10.

Positive rating triggers include a successful installation of
Surina's remaining knitting machines as per schedule, its EBIDTA
margins of beyond 9% with a leverage of below 4x.  Negative rating
triggers include Surina's EBIDTA margins of below 5%, its leverage
exceeding 7x, and/ or further delays in the installation of the
remaining knitting machines beyond a quarter.

Surina, incorporated in 2005, has its main manufacturing
facilities at Narayanpur in Kolkata.  It is setting up a 3,600 MT
per annum knitting unit at Kolkata.  Out of the 40 knitting
machines to be installed, the company has already installed 20 and
started commercial operations since January 2010.  The remaining
20 knitting machines are expected to be installed and operational
by October 2010.  In Q1FY11, the company reported sales of
INR125.83 million (provisional figures).

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.
