ONE.TEL LTD: Access to Litigation Funder's Info Denied
------------------------------------------------------
News Ltd and Publishing and Broadcasting Ltd have failed in an
attempt to uncover details of the litigation funding secured by
One.Tel Ltd's special purpose liquidator for a AU$244 million
compensation suit in the NSW Supreme Court, The Sydney Morning
Herald reports.

According to the report, Justice Reg Barrett ruled on November 5
that disclosing the amount of funding and funder's identity would
deliver a tactical advantage to the defendants in the dispute over
the abandonment of a AU$132 million rights issue on the eve of
One.Tel's 2001 collapse.

SMH relates Judge Barrett said that giving News and PBL the name
of the funder "would carry with it the potential of distortion in
the form of direct approaches to the funder with a view to
influencing the funder's conduct in the performance of the
[funding] agreements."

As to the amount of funding, SMH says, the judge quoted from a
decision in an unrelated Federal Court case which said such
knowledge "may enable the proposed defendants to assess and
implement the extent to which they could, by way of interlocutory
processes, eat up the liquidator's funding before the conclusion
of the trial."

SMH states that Justice Barrett agreed November 8, at the request
of PBL, to revisit the issue of whether the defence could have
access to information about how the liquidator, Paul Weston,
negotiated the funding.

According to SMH, PBL's barrister, Tom Bathurst, QC, said the
history of the negotiations was "not something which would confer
a tactical advantage" but was "critical" to an attempt to prove
the court should not have granted Mr. Weston repeated extensions
to the deadline for serving his claim.

In applying for extensions, SMH relates, Mr. Weston gave evidence
in confidential affidavits of needing more time to obtain funding.
A challenge to the validity of the extensions is set for February,
SMH adds.

The Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific, citing the Herald Sun,
reported on November 24, 2009, that the fight arises out of
One.Tel's aborted AU$132 million rights issue in 2001, which was
to be backed by Packer's Publishing and Broadcasting Limited and
Murdoch's News Ltd.  PBL and News, which lost a combined AU$1
billion when One.Tel collapsed, withdrew their underwriting on the
grounds that it was not enough to cover the telco's debts.

                           About One.Tel

One.Tel Limited is an Australian based telecommunications company,
belonging to One.Tel Group.  One.Tel Ltd. was established in 1995
soon after the deregulation of the Australian telecommunications
industry, most of which are currently under external
administration by court appointed liquidators.

One.Tel is currently in liquidation due to financial problems.
Ferrier Hodgson was appointed as voluntary administrator on
May 29, 2001.  The administrator's report stated that the company
was insolvent as of March 2001.  Accordingly, the administrator
terminated approximately 3,000 employees in June that same year.

Steve Sherman and Peter Walker of Ferrier Hodgson were then
named liquidators on July 24, 2001.

YUZHOU PROPERTIES: Moody's Assigns 'B1' Corporate Family Rating
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has assigned a first time B1 corporate
family rating to Yuzhou Properties Company Limited.

Moody's has also assigned a provisional (P)B2 rating to its
proposed US$ senior unsecured bond issues.  The ratings outlook
for the rating is stable.

Proceeds from the proposed bonds will be used to fund Yuzhou's
land acquisitions and working capital requirements, and to repay
certain of its existing loans.

The provisional rating status of the bond rating will be removed
after Yuzhou has completed the issuance based on satisfactory
terms and pricing.

                        Ratings Rationale

"Yuzhou's B1 corporate family rating reflects the high execution
and financial risk arising from its rapid growth plan, as well as
the company's short operating history in a highly volatile Chinese
property market," says Kaven Tsang, a Moody's AVP/Analyst.

"The B1 rating also takes into account Yuzhou's small operating
scale, which translates into high geographic and cash flow
concentration in a few projects, mainly in Xiamen," continues
Tsang, also Moody's lead analyst for Yuzhou.

Partly mitigating these challenges is Yuzhou's leading market
position and quality land bank in Xiamen, which support sales
stability to some extent.  Also, given the low level of
speculative demand at its major markets, the company should be
less affected by further policy tightening in the sector.

Additionally, Yuzhou's low-cost land bank and decent profit margin
will allow it some flexibility to adjust prices without material
impairment to its profit margin in the event of a market slowdown.

As Yuzhou will fund a portion of its future growth with debt, its
adjusted debt/capitalization ratio will rise to around 50-55% in
the coming one to two years, from 41.5% at June 2010.  Projected
EBITDA interest coverage will stay at 4-5x -- which is modest for
the B1 rating -- for the next two to three years.

Yuzhou has banking facilities at several major banks in China.
However, the company still needs to extend its onshore/offshore
banking relationships and diversify its funding access to enhance
its financial flexibility if it is to more effectively mitigate
the policy risks in China's much regulated bank market.

Yuzhou's bond rating is notched down to B2, reflecting the risk of
structural and legal subordination.  The ratio of secured and
subsidiary debt to total assets was at around 21.3% as of June
2010, and will remain in the 15-20% range for the next two to
three years, as the company will continue to draw on onshore bank
loans to fund its construction work.

The stable outlook reflects Moody's expectation that Yuzhou will
achieve moderate business growth at a stable profit margin and
maintain access to onshore bank funding for its construction work.

Yuzhou's ratings could be upgraded in the medium term if it can 1)
establish a track record of achieving its planned sales growth
with stable profit margins; 2) generates sale from a well-balanced
portfolio without concentration risk; 3) achieve a stable
financial profile without aggressive land acquisitions; or 4)
strengthen its liquidity with broadened banking relationships and
free cash supporting its scale of operations.

The credit metrics Moody's would look for are adjusted
debt/capitalization falls under 45-50% and EBITDA/interest
coverage rises above 5x.

The ratings could be downgraded if Yuzhou's financial position
deteriorates, due 1) weaker than expected sales performance; 2)
aggressive development or land acquisitions; or 3) weakened
liquidity, such that it could not support its operations.

The credit metrics that Moody's would consider for a rating
downgrade include adjusted debt/capitalization rising beyond 55-
60% and EBITDA/interest coverage falling under 2-3x.

Yuzhou Properties Company Limited is a Fujian-based developer that
focuses on residential housing in Xiamen.  It has a small and
concentrated land bank (with land titles) of around 4.9 million
square meters in gross floor area located in Xiamen, Fuzhou,
Hefei, and Shanghai.  Xiamen comprises around 50-55% of the land
bank.


YUZHOU PROPERTIES: S&P Assigns 'B+' Corporate Credit Rating
-----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it had assigned its
'B+' long-term corporate credit rating to Xiamen-based property
developer Yuzhou Properties Co. Ltd.  The outlook is stable.  At
the same time, Standard & Poor's assigned its 'B' issue rating to
the company's proposed issue of senior unsecured notes.  The
rating on the notes is subject to S&P's review of the final
issuance documentation.  The company will use the proceeds from
the proposed notes to fund its land acquisitions and repay certain
existing loans, and for general corporate purposes.

"The rating on Yuzhou reflects the company's geographic and
project concentration, its limited scale, and execution risks
associated with its expansion outside of its home base of Xiamen
city.  In addition, Yuzhou is exposed to the cyclical and
competitive nature of China's real estate market with evolving
regulations.  These weaknesses are tempered by the company's
leading market position in Xiamen in terms of sales and brand; its
low-cost land bank, which should be sufficient for the next four
to five years; and its above-average profitability," said Standard
& Poor's credit analyst Frank Lu.

S&P believes Yuzhou's geographic and project concentration, which
constrains its financial flexibility, is likely to remain a risk
for at least the next two years.  About 76.5% of the company's
land bank, or reserves, is in three cities in Fujian province,
including 34.4% in Xiamen and 36% in a single project in Quanzhou.
In 2009 and the first half of 2010, revenue came mainly from four
projects and the largest single project contributed more than 30%
of total revenue.  Yuzhou's expansion outside Fujian province
should start to alleviate the concentration risk.

Yushou's profitability may be lower in new markets than in Xiamen
due to higher execution risk and larger development costs,
including land costs.  Although the company has already entered
Shanghai, Hefei and Fuzhou, and properties sales have been
satisfactory, its scale and market positions in these cities are
still limited.  In Fujian province, the developer's brand equity
in Xiamen tempers these risks.  In Xiamen, the company has a 15-
year track record and a market share of 7.7% by gross floor area
sold in 2009.  In addition, Yuzhou has a clear and consistent
positioning strategy in the city, with a good level of recurring
customers.

S&P believes Yuzhou's low land costs are likely to support its
above-average profitability, compared with similarly rated peers',
in the next two to three years.  Yuzhou has maintained its land
costs at less than 20% of its average selling price over the past
five years.

The issue rating on Yuzhou's proposed notes is one notch lower
than the corporate credit rating to reflect S&P's opinion that
offshore noteholders would be materially disadvantaged, compared
with onshore creditors, in the event of default.  In S&P's view,
the company's ratio of priority borrowings to total assets will
remain above S&P's notching threshold of 15% for speculative-
grade-rated debt.

Yuzhou's liquidity is adequate, in S&P's view.  The company had
unrestricted cash and cash equivalents of Chinese renminbi
RMB673.2 million at the end of June 2010 against short-term debt
of RMB743.5 million.  Yuzhou's liquidity is sensitive to property
sales due to its relatively large outstanding land premiums
totaling RMB2.35 billion due before the end of 2011 and growing
construction spending on expansion.  Yuzhou achieved contract
sales of RMB2.75 billion from July to October 2010.  Yuzhou has
undrawn uncommitted bank credit line of about RMB3 billion in
China.

If successfully executed, the proceeds from the proposed senior
unsecured note issuance should further support the company's
liquidity position.

"The stable outlook reflects S&P's expectation that Yuzhou will
adopt a disciplined growth strategy and maintain above-average
profit margins as it expands outside of Xiamen," said Mr. Lu.

ALUTOP: CRISIL Upgrades Rating on INR23.1MM LT Loan to 'BB-'
------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has upgraded its ratings on the bank facilities of Alutop
to 'BB-/Stable/P4+' from 'B+/Stable/P4'.

   Facilities                         Ratings
   ----------                         -------
   INR23.10 Million Long Term Loan    BB-/Stable (Upgraded from
                                                  B+/Stable)

   INR35.00 Million Cash Credit       BB-/Stable (Upgraded from
                                                  B+/Stable)

   INR15.00 Million Letter of Credit  P4+ (Upgraded from P4)

The upgrade reflects improvement in Alutop's business risk
profile, driven by increase in operating efficiency as a result of
the recent upgrade of its manufacturing facility.  The upgrade
also factors in improvement in Alutop's liquidity, supported by
healthy cash accruals and partial deferment of its planned debt-
funded capital expenditure (capex) on capacity expansion project.
CRISIL believes that Alutop will continue to generate healthy
growth in revenues while maintaining profitability, supported by
healthy demand from its end-user segment.

The ratings reflect Alutop's working-capital-intensive operations
resulting in a below-average financial risk profile marked by high
gearing and small net worth.  The firm is also exposed to risks
related to supplier concentration and intense competition in the
pilfer-proof caps industry.  These rating weaknesses are partially
offset by the extensive experience of Alutop's promoters in the
pilfer-proof caps business and its established relationships with
its customers.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that Alutop will continue to benefit from its
promoters' extensive industry experience.  The outlook may be
revised to 'Positive' if Alutop scales up its operations while
maintaining its profitability, and improves its capital structure
through fresh equity infusion.  Conversely, the outlook may be
revised to 'Negative' if the firm's financial risk profile
deteriorates because of sharp decline in margins and cash
accruals, large, debt-funded capex, or withdrawals by promoters.

                           About Alutop

Set up in 1990 by Mr. Bhaskar R Uchil, Alutop manufactures pilfer-
proof caps. The firm has a manufacturing capacity of 2.5 million
pilfer-proof caps per annum, and also has a metal-printing unit in
Bengaluru. Alutop is setting up another metal-printing unit for
around INR31 million, which is expected to be operational in the
first quarter of 2011-12. The firm's operations are managed by Mr.
Uchil Krishnappa and Mr.K Krishnappa.

Alutop reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR4 million on net
sales of INR212 million for 2009-10 (refers to financial year,
April1 to March 31), against a PAT of INR2 million on net sales of
INR176 million for 2008-09.


AMRUT COTTON: CRISIL Reaffirms 'B-' Rating on INR3.8MM LT Loan
--------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has reaffirmed its rating on the bank facilities of Amrut
Cotton Industries which continues to reflect Amrut's weak
financial risk profile marked by high gearing as a result of large
working capital borrowings, and its vulnerability to competitive
pressures and adverse regulatory changes with respect to minimum
support prices (MSP).  The impact of the rating weaknesses is
mitigated by the benefits that Amrut derives from its promoter's
experience in the trading business.

   Facilities                       Ratings
   ----------                       -------
   INR52.7 Million Cash Credit      B-/Stable (Reaffirmed)
   INR3.8 Million Long Term Loan    B-/Stable (Reaffirmed)

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that Amrut will maintain a weak credit risk
profile marked by high gearing and low debt protection measures
over the medium term.  The outlook may be revised to 'Positive' if
there is considerable improvement in Amrut's financial risk
profile, driven by improvement in capital structure. Conversely,
the outlook may be revised to 'Negative' if Amrut faces pressure
on its operating margin, or is unable to sustain working capital
improvements made over the previous year.

Update

Amrut's revenues have grown by 31 per cent in 2009-10 (refers to
financial year, April 1 to March 31) over that in the previous
year, led by around 18 per cent increase in sales volumes and
improvement in price realisations.  The operating profit margin
has remained stable at 2.3 per cent in 2009-10 compared with
2.2 per cent in the previous year.  Amrut reported, on provisional
basis, gross sales of INR170 million for the first half of
2010-11.

Amrut's working capital requirements increased during 2009-10,
with gross current asset level of 93 days largely because of
increase in inventory holding period.  This has resulted in
Amrut's financial risk profile remaining weak, with high gearing
of 4.33 times as on March 31, 2010, against 2.5 times on an
average during the previous year.  The debt protection indicators
continue to be weak, with interest coverage ratio of 1.35 times
and the net cash accruals to debt ratio of 0.02 times as on March
31, 2010. CRISIL believes that Amrut's working capital
requirements will remain large, resulting in further increase in
gearing and weakening of its financial risk profile over the near
to medium term.

Amrut's liquidity continues to be average, with modest net cash
accruals of around INR2.0 million expected to be generated over
the near to medium term, which is expected to be just about
sufficient to meet its long-term-debt-related repayments of around
INR2.3 million.  Also, its bank limit utilization for the 12
months ended September 30, 2010 was moderate at 60 per cent on an
average.

Amrut reported, on provisional basis, a profit after tax (PAT) of
INR0.33 million on net sales of INR471.40 million for 2009-10,
against a PAT of INR0.49 million on net sales of INR359.50 million
for 2008-09.

                        About Amrut Cotton

Set up in 2006 as a partnership firm by the main promoter
Mr. Sureshbhai Ballabhai, Amrut is in the cotton ginning business.
The cotton bales are sold to traders in the local market, who

Pakistan.  Amrut also sells cotton seeds to local oil mills.


AMURTHA TEXTILES: CRISIL Assigns 'C' Rating to INR66.5MM LT Loan
----------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its 'C/P4' ratings to the bank facilities of
Amurtha Textiles.

   Facilities                         Ratings
   ----------                         -------
   INR66.50 Million Long Term Loan    C (Assigned)
   INR16.00 Million Cash Credit       C (Assigned)
   INR8.00 Million Letter of Credit   P4 (Assigned)

The ratings reflect Amurtha's past instances of delay in meeting
its interest repayments, on account of its weak liquidity.  The
ratings also reflect Amurtha's weak financial risk profile, marked
by high gearing and weak debt protection metrics.  The ratings
also reflect its small scale of operations and the susceptibility
of its operating margin to fluctuations in raw material prices.
These weaknesses are partially offset by the experience of
Amurtha's promoters in the cotton fabric industry, and its
established customer and supplier relationships.

                         About Amurtha Textiles

Amurtha is a proprietorship firm set up in 1993 by Mr. S
Sathasivam.  The firm is into the spinning of cotton bales into
yarn of 40's count.  The yarn is then outsourced to manufacture
grey fabric, which is then sold by Amurtha.  The firm's spinning
mill is located in Coimbatore (Tamil Nadu).  It has an installed
capacity of 17,280 spindles, enhanced from 10,080 spindles in June
2010. The firm is managed by Mr. S Sathasivam and his son, Mr.
Vijay Ananth.

Amurtha reported, on a provisional basis a profit after tax (PAT)
of INR6.3 million on net sales of INR156.9 million for 2009-10
(refers to financial year, April 1 to March 31), against a PAT of
INR3.0 million on net sales of INR139.7 million for 2008-09.


AP REFINERY: CRISIL Reaffirms 'BB' Rating on INR97.3MM Term Loan
-----------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL's rating on A.P. Refinery Pvt Ltd's bank facilities
continues to reflect APR's weak financial risk profile marked by a
high gearing because of working-capital-intensive operations,
susceptibility to volatility in edible oil prices, and exposure to
intense market competition because of fragmentation in the edible
oils industry.  These rating weaknesses are partially offset by
APR's above-average operating efficiencies, supported by
integrated operations, and promoter's experience in the rice bran
oil industry.

   Facilities                       Ratings
   ----------                       -------
   INR195.0 Million Cash Credit     BB/Stable (Reaffirmed)
   INR97.3 Million Term Loan        BB/Stable (Reaffirmed)

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that APR will maintain its business risk profile
over the medium term, supported by its integrated operations and
promoters' industry experience.  The company's financial risk
profile is expected to remain weak because of large working
capital requirements and debt-funded capital expenditure (capex)
plans.  The outlook may be revised to 'Positive' if APR reports
more-than-expected sales and higher-than-expected profitability,
or if there is fresh equity infusion into the company, resulting
in significant improvement in its financial risk profile.
Conversely, the outlook may be revised to 'Negative' if APR's
working capital intensity increases, or it undertakes larger-than-
expected debt-funded capex, thereby weakening its capital
structure.

                       About A.P. Refinery

Incorporated in 2004, APR began commercial operations in early
2007.  Till 2008-09 (refers to financial year, April 1 to
March 31), it was operating only through a solvent extraction unit
taken on lease in Malerkotla (Punjab) with capacity of 250 tonnes
per day (tpd).  In 2009-10, the company set up a solvent
extraction unit with capacity of 450 tpd and refinery capacity of
75 tpd in Jagraon (Punjab).

APR reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR8.9 million on net
sales of INR768 million for 2009-10, against a PAT of INR2.4
million on net sales of INR396 million for the previous year.


APEX AUTO: CRISIL Lifts Rating on INR565MM Term Loan to 'BB'
------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has upgraded its ratings on Apex Auto Ltd's bank facilities
to 'BB/Stable/P4+' from 'B/Stable/P4'.

   Facilities                         Ratings
   ----------                         -------
   INR185.0 Million Cash Credit       BB/Stable (Upgraded from
                                                 'B/Stable')
   INR565 Million Term Loan           BB/Stable (Upgraded from
                                                 'B/Stable')
   INR40 Million Bank Guarantee       P4+ (Upgraded from 'P4')
   INR10 Million Letter of Credit     P4+ (Upgraded from 'P4')

The rating upgrade reflects timely servicing of its debt
obligations over the past 15 months.  The upgrade also factors in
the improvement in the company's liquidity profile as reflected in
increased cash accruals to INR125 million in 2009-10 (refers to
financial year, April 1 to March 31), and its low average bank
limit utilisation of 44 per cent over the 12-month period ended
August 31, 2010.  Further, CRISIL believes that AAL will report
healthy growth in revenue and operating profitability over the
medium term driven by the improved demand outlook for construction
equipment ancillaries.

The ratings reflect the company's exposure to risks relating to
product and customer concentration in its revenue profile,
fluctuations in demand for its products as sales are correlated to
spending on infrastructural activities, and volatility in input
prices.  These weaknesses are mitigated by AAL's strong
relationship, marked by repeat orders, with Telco Construction
Equipment Co Ltd, and moderate financial risk profile.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that AAL will maintain its credit risk profile
over the medium term on the back of established customer
relationship and the expected healthy growth in its end-user
industry.  The outlook could be revised to 'Positive' if AAL's
scale of operations increases significantly, or if it diversifies
its customer profile.  Conversely, the outlook could be revised to
'Negative' if AAL's profitability declines, and consequently, its
debt protection measures deteriorate or if it undertakes large
debt-funded capital expenditure.

                          About Apex Auto

AAL, incorporated in 1994 manufactures construction equipment
ancillary parts such as arms, buckets, and loaders for excavators,
cranes and back-hoe loaders.  These components are mainly sold to
TELCON, which is a construction equipment manufacturer.  AAL's
products are used in mining, and hard and soft soil digging.  It
has four manufacturing units, of which three are in Dharwad
(Karnataka) and one in Jamshedpur (Jharkhand).

For 2009-10 (refer to financial year, April 1 to March 31), AAL
reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR54 million on net sales of
INR886 million, against a PAT of INR24 million on net sales of
INR1008 million in the previous year.


BHARAT SHIP: ICRA Places 'LBB' Rating on INR3cr Cash Credit
-----------------------------------------------------------
ICRA has assigned an "LBB" rating to the INR3.00 crore cash credit
facility of Bharat Ship Breakers Corporation.  The outlook for the
rating is stable.  ICRA has also assigned an "A4" rating to the
INR27.60 crore, short-term, non-fund based limits of BSC.

The ratings are constrained by the volatility which is associated
with the business of the firm as the prospects of ship breaking
business are dependent on the international shipping business
fundamentals; the small size of operations, weak profitability of
the firm and its vulnerability to fluctuations in steel prices.
The operations are also working capital intensive. BSC being a
partnership concern, any significant withdrawals from the capital
account would affect the capital structure of the firm.

The ratings have positively considered the long standing presence
of BSC's promoter in the ship breaking business, its favorable
capital structure and favorable outlook for the ship breaking
industry in the near future.

                         About Bharat Ship

Incorporated in 1985, Bharat Ship Breakers Corporation is a
partnership firm engaged in ship breaking activities.  The
partners of the firm have been associated with the Ship Breaking
business since 1983.  BSC operates from Plot No. 63 at Alang-
Sosiya Ship breaking Yard, Bhavnagar, Gujarat on a lease basis.

FACT SOFTWARE: CARE Revises Rating on INR70.35cr Loan to 'CARE D'
-----------------------------------------------------------------
CARE revises the rating assigned to bank facilities of
Fact Software Pvt. Ltd.

                                 Amount
   Facilities                   (INR cr)     Ratings
   ----------                    -------     -------
   Long-term Bank Facilities      70.35      'CARE D' Revised from
                                                      CARE B

Rating Rationale

The rating revision takes into account the ongoing delays in debt
servicing by Fact Software (P) Ltd, on account of its stressed
liquidity profile.

FSL, promoted by Mr. Ravi Mohan Sethi, was incorporated on
September 9, 2005 with the main objective of building and leasing
of infrastructure facilities in the area of IT and IT-
related businesses.  The company has developed an IT Park in Noida
involving 6 lac sq ft of built-up area along with 3 lac sq ft of
basement area and stilt area of 43 thousand sq ft.  Though the
project was completed in FY10, FSL has not been able to lease or
sell the space as envisaged which has significantly affected its
earnings and cash flows, leading to delays in debt servicing.
During FY10, FSL earned a total income of INR2.01 crore and
incurred a net loss of INR4.10 crore.


FORWARD SHOES: ICRA Places 'LBB' Rating on INR16.75cr Bank Debts
----------------------------------------------------------------
ICRA has assigned an LBB rating to the INR16.75 crores fund based
term loan facilities of Forward Shoes (India) Private Limited; the
outlook on the rating is Stable.  ICRA has also assigned an A4
rating to the INR14.00 crore short-term fund based facilities of
Forward Leather Company.

The ratings are constrained by the competitive pressure in the
export and domestic market leading to low margins; high dependence
on the European market, particularly UK leading to high geographic
concentration; competition from domestic and international
players, especially China in the export market; weak bargaining
power against customers, which primarily include large
international brands.  The ratings are also constrained by the
enforcement of pollution control norms, power shortages and labor
issues leading to an increase in manufacturing costs; exposure to
foreign exchange risk due to high proportion of exports in
revenues; and the high financial risk profile of the firm
characterised by low profitability and high gearing leading to
stretched cash flows.  The ratings, however, favorably factor the
established position of the group in the footwear and leather
export market, with a stable customer profile; long track record
of the promoters in the leather and footwear business with a
history of more than three decades; positive outlook for the
leather and footwear export industry due to the rising demand
after the recent slowdown; and the integrated nature of
operations, with the group having its own tannery as well as sole
and upper manufacturing capacities.  The company is also pursuing
an expansion project to increase the capacity of the company to
cater to the rising demand.

                        About Forward Shoes

Forward Shoes India Pvt. Ltd. is a full shoe manufacturer and

GOYAL HOSPITAL: CRISIL Assigns 'BB' Rating to INR93MM Term Loan
---------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its 'BB/Stable' rating to the bank facilities
of Goyal Hospital and Research Centre Pvt Ltd.

   Facilities                         Ratings
   ----------                         -------
   INR5.0 Million Cash Credit Limit   BB/Stable (Assigned)
   INR93.0 Million Term Loan          BB/Stable (Assigned)

The rating reflects GHRCPL's small scale of operations, limited
financial flexibility, and geographically concentrated revenue
profile.  These rating weaknesses are partially offset by
experience of GHRCPL's promoters in the healthcare industry and
the company's wide offering of secondary and tertiary healthcare
services, and moderate financial risk profile, marked by low
gearing and moderate debt protection metrics.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that GHRCPL's scale of operations will remain
small and it will maintain its financial risk profile, supported
by low gearing and moderate debt protection metrics, over the
medium term.  The outlook may be revised to 'Positive' if the
company significantly improves its scale of operations while
maintaining profitability.  Conversely, the outlook may be revised
to 'Negative' if lower-than-expected revenues or profitability,
lead to depressed cash accruals, or if the company undertakes a
large debt-funded capital expenditure programme, which would
deteriorate its capital structure.

                       About Goyal Hospital

GHRCPL was set up by Mr. Anand Goyal in 1989 in Jodhpur
(Rajasthan).  GHRCPL is a 110 bedded, Ex-Servicemen Contributory

GHRCPL reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR4.9 million on net
sales of INR107 million for 2008-09 (refers to financial year,
April 1 to March 31), against a PAT of INR3.0 million on net sales
of INR82 million for 2008-09.


GURU AASHISH: ICRA Assigns 'LBB' Rating to INR29.45cr Debts
-----------------------------------------------------------
ICRA has assigned an "LBB" and A4 ratings to the INR29.45
Crore fund-based bank facilities and an "A4" rating to the
INR1.00 Crore short term non-fund-based bank facilities of Guru
Aashish Texfab Ltd.  The outlook assigned to the long-term rating
is "Stable".

The ratings take into account GATL's low profitability and return
indicators along with its presence in the highly fragmented
textile trading business characterized by limited value addition.
The ratings also factor in GATL's leveraged capital structure
resulting in modest coverage indicators and its stretched
liquidity profile as demonstrated by high levels of working
capital utilization.  The ratings favorably factor in the
promoters' experience of trading in fabrics that has helped GATL
diversify its customer and supplier base and achieve a sustained
growth in operating income, though margins remain low.

                        About Guru Aashish

Guru Aashish Texfab Ltd a closely held public limited company is
engaged in the business of trading fabrics used for kids wear and
ladies wear.  GATL has a registered office in Mumbai.

Recent Results

of INR180.61 Crore for the year ending March 31, 2010 as per the
audited figures.


HARRISONS MALAYALAM: ICRA Ups Rating on INR56.2cr Loans to 'LBB+'
-----------------------------------------------------------------
ICRA has upgraded the long term rating assigned to the INR56.2
crore term loans and the INR37.0 crore fund based facilities of
Harrisons Malayalam Limited to LBB+ from LB.  The outlook on the
rating is stable. ICRA has also upgraded the short term rating
assigned to the INR7.0 crore fund based facilities and the INR11.5
crore non-fund based facilities of HML to A4+ from A4. ICRA has
also withdrawn the long-term rating of 'LB' assigned earlier to
the INR5.0 crore term loan programme of HML at the request of the
Company; the instrument has been fully redeemed and there is no
amount outstanding against it.

The revision in ratings reflects the Company's leading market
position in the domestic natural rubber industry resulting in
pricing flexibility, HML's diversified client base which provides
stability to revenues and the favorable medium term outlook for
the natural rubber and domestic tea industry.  The Company's
accelerated replanting initiatives in the rubber division and
infilling exercises in the tea division are likely to result in
enhanced quality, better yield and provide revenue stability in
the long term.  The ratings are however constrained by the
Company's exposure to the inherent cyclicality associated with
domestic natural rubber and tea industry, weak capital structure
after adjusting for revaluation reserves and lower margins on
account of high overheads.  The debt levels are however expected
to remain at moderate levels with minimal debt-funded capital
expenditure plans on the anvil.

                     About Harrisons Malayalam

HML is a part of RPG Enterprises Ltd, an established group with
interests in tyre, carbon black, power transmission,
telecommunications, retail and entertainment.  Incorporated in
1978, HML is primarily a rubber and tea producer, with revenues

HOTEL VAIGAI: CRISIL Places 'D' Rating on INR211 Million LT Loan
----------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its 'D' rating to the bank facilities of Hotel
Vaigai Pvt Ltd.

   Facilities                         Ratings
   ----------                         -------
   INR211.00 Million Long Term Loan   D (Assigned)
   INR5.00 Million Cash Credit        D (Assigned)

The rating reflects delays by HVPL in servicing its debt. The
delays have been caused by HVPL's weak liquidity, resulting from
the nascent stage of its operations.

HVPL has a weak financial risk profile, marked by high gearing and
weak debt protection metrics, and is exposed to competition from
other three-star hotels in Chennai.  The company, however,
benefits from the extensive experience of its promoters in the
hotel industry.

HVPL was incorporated in 1978 by Mr. N K Kondalsamy.  In the same
year, the company set up a budget hotel, Hotel Vaigai, in Egmore
(Chennai).  The hotel was demolished in 2004 and reconstructed
during the period 2007 to 2009.  The hotel resumed operations in
December 2009.  HVPL currently operates the three-star hotel under
its own brand, Fortel.  Its day-to-day operations are managed by
Mr. K Jayakanthan, son of the promoter Mr. N K Kondalsamy.

HVPL also has a hotel in Kodaikanal (Tamil Nadu), Hotel Vaigai
Inn, which has been leased out for an annual payment of INR1.6
million.

HVPL reported a loss of INR31.60 million on net sales of
INR27.00 million for 2009-10 (refers to financial year, April 1 to
March 31), against a net profit of INR0.06 million on net sales of
INR1.74 million for 2008-09.

KINGFISHER AIRLINES: Wins Lender Support to Restructure Debt
------------------------------------------------------------
Siddharth Philip at Bloomberg News reports that Kingfisher
Airlines Ltd. got preliminary approval from lenders for a debt
restructuring plan to cut interest costs and benefit from rising
demand for air travel.

"The bank consortium has agreed generally to the package," Ravi
Nedungadi, chief financial officer at the carrier's parent UB
Group, told Bloomberg by phone.  "Now each of the banks has to
necessarily pass it through their respective board, so we'll wait
for them to approve before we comment on the restructuring plan."

The airline has lost money six years in a row, accumulating net
debt of INR77.2 billion (US$1.74 billion) as of March, according
to data compiled by Bloomberg.  Billionaire founder and Chairman
Vijay Mallya in September said a planned debt revamp would slash
interest costs by as much as 11%, Bloomberg notes.  The central
bank approved the plan in the same month.

According to Bloomberg, State Bank of India Ltd. said November 8
that it would approve the debt restructuring program by the end of
December.

OVIS EQUIPMENTS: ICRA Assigns 'LBB+' Rating to INR5.6cr Debts
-------------------------------------------------------------
ICRA has assigned 'LBB+' rating to INR5.60 crore fund based
facilities and INR5.50 crore non fund based facility of Ovis
Equipments Pvt. Ltd.

The assigned rating is constrained by OEPL's relatively small
scale of operations, stagnant revenue in FY 2010 high receivables
which are older than six months and low pricing power which can be
inferred from the susceptibility of the company's profit margins
to volatility in raw material prices and cyclicality in end user
segments The ratings are also constrained on account of its single
supplier policy for each raw material which exposes the company to
supplier concentration risks.  The rating is however supported by
more than two decades long experience of the promoters in this
niche industry and strong growth expected in end user industries.

Established in 1987, OEPL is engaged in manufacturing of diesel
shunting locomotives, overhead track maintenance vehicles, self
driven trolleys and spare parts to be used in specialized wagons.
Past record of deliveries and performance of manufactured product
are key parameters assessed by the prospective client before
placing orders due to the specialized nature of this industry.
This combined with the small size of the industry acts as a
significant entry barrier to new players.

OEPL is focused on assembling diesel shunting locomotives and has
benefited significantly from the capacity addition by private
sector players in cement and steel industries.  The customer
profile of the company is very diversified which includes many
reputed private and public sector companies like BHEL, Reliance
infrastructure Limited, Grasim Industries Limited, Ultra Tech
cements Limited, Integral coach Factory, Brahmos Aerospcae, South
Western Railway etc.

OEPL has an order book position of INR 31 crores to be executed
over next two financial years out of which 32% orders were bagged
in H1 of FY 2011.  The order book position is driven mainly by the
locomotive business. OEPL's revenue grew by 75% CAGR between FY
2006 to FY 2009 due to the growth in orders from coal, steel and
cements sectors; but it remained stagnant in FY2010 as compared to
FY2009.  However despite this growth the company's scale of
operations is modest with an operating income of INR22.75 crores
in FY 2010.  The top 5 clients accounted for 67% of total revenues
in FY 2010 and the top customer alone accounted for 22% of its
total revenues.  The profitability metrics has also improved which
is reflected in operating margins of 11.03% in FY 2010 compared to
7.65% in FY 2009. ROCE of the company was 25.48% in FY 2010. While
operating margins have improved in FY 2010 compared to the
preceding year OEPL's profitability remains susceptible to
fluctuations in the input prices and inherent cyclicality in the
end user segments.

The working capital intensity of OEPL has increased in FY 2010 as
seen from NWC/OI of 36.7% as compared to 26.9% in FY 2009. This
high working capital intensity is due to the accumulation of
receivables one third of which were older than six months and high
inventory levels. The leverage showed significant improvement in
FY 2010 on account of regular term loan repayments. The gearing
stood at 1.59 on March 31, 2010, as against 1.78 as on March 31,
2009.  Lower debt levels combined with good profitability have
resulted in comfortable debt coverage indicators as reflected in
NCA/Total Debt of 18.53%, OPBIDTA/Total Debt of 37.50% and
interest coverage of 3.44 times in FY 2010.

Going forward, the ability of the company to remain profitable by
streamlining manufacturing costs in the backdrop of end user
cycles and improve its capital structure will remain the key
rating drivers.

RAMSARUP INDUSTRIES: CARE Revises Rating on Bank Loans to 'CARE B'
------------------------------------------------------------------
CARE revises ratings assigned to the bank facilities of
Ramsarup Industries Ltd.

                               Amount
   Facilities                 (INR cr)       Ratings
   ----------                  -------       -------
   Long-term Bank Facilities   1,365.4       'CARE B' Revised from
                                                      CARE BBB-

   Short-term Bank Facilities     70.4       'PR4' Revised from
                                                    PR3
   Long/Short-term Bank           169.1      'CARE B'/'PR4'
   Facilities                                 Revised from CARE
                                              BBB- /PR5
Rating Rationale

The revision in ratings is on account of delay in project
execution arising out of the company's inability to arrange
additional term loan, difficulty in carrying out operation at
completed projects due to lack of working capital for its ongoing
projects at Kharagpur, strain on the liquidity position leading to
instances of delays in debt servicing obligations and significant
amount of debt repayment obligation falling due from FY12.  The
ratings also factor in risk of volatility in raw material &
finished goods prices, risks associated with implementation of the
remaining part of the project, highly leveraged capital structure
of the company and cyclicality in the steel industry on which the
company's fortune depend to a large extent.  The ratings also take
cognizance of experience of the promoters, company's ability to
offer a whole range of TMT Bars & wires to customers and
empanelment with Power Grid Corp. of India Ltd.  Performance of
the steel industry, ability to successfully complete the ongoing
projects with stabilization in operation and regularization of
debt servicing will remain the key rating sensitivities.

                      About Ramsarup Industries

RIL, incorporated in 1966, belongs to Shri Ashish Jhunjhunwala and
his family of Kolkata.  The company sells steel wires and TMT
bars, under the brand name 'Ramsarup' and 'Ramsarup TMT'
respectively.  RIL is setting up an integrated steel project at
Kharagpur, at an aggregate cost of INR1,267.3 crore which is being
financed at a debt-equity ratio of 1.85:1.  However, non
achievement of financial closure resulted in substantial delays
and cost overrun.

During FY10, RIL has achieved net sales of INR2,057.2 crore
(INR1,974.2 crore in FY09) with PAT (after deferred tax) of
INR44.8 crore (net loss of INR75.0 crore in FY09).  As per the
unaudited working results for the quarter ended June 30, 2010
(Q1FY11), the company registered almost same level of GCA vis-a-
vis corresponding quarter of the last year (Q1FY10).


SRI INDRA SOLVENT: ICRA Assigns 'LB+' Rating to INR7 Crore Debts
----------------------------------------------------------------
ICRA has assigned 'LB+' rating to INR7.00 crore fund based
facilities of Sri Indra Solvent Oils Private Limited.

The rating is constrained by SISOPL's high project gearing of 4.75
times as on August 31, 2010 and the fact that the manufacturing
plant is yet to be completely operational. The ratings also take
note of the fragmented nature of the domestic edible oil industry
and the competition that RBO faces from cheaper substitutes,
particularly palm oil which could exert pressure on the
profitability of the RBO business. The rating is also constrained
by exposure to cyclicality of the feedstock, leading to
constraints in passing on hike in input costs to customers and
thereby resulting in stretching of margin. Going forward, SISOPL's
ability to ramp up operations in a timely manner and maintain its
profit margins given the cyclicality of feed stock would be the
key rating sensitivities.

However, the assigned rating considers the favorable prospects for
RBO owing to its health benefits and competitive pricing compared
to other edible oils like soybean and sunflower oil.  ICRA draws
comfort from the experience of promoters and management in the
business, with one of the directors being the promoter of Sameera
Solvent Oils which has been producing RBO since January 2004, and
also from the favorable project location (Gangavathy Taluk in
Koppal district of Karnataka) with easy availability of raw
materials and lower transportation costs.

                          About Indra Solvent

SISOPL, incorporated in 2008 by Mr. Narendra Ch is in the business
of manufacturing rice bran oil (RBO) through the solvent oil
extraction process RBO.  The plant is located in Gangavathy taluk
in Koppal District, Karnataka.  The construction of plant was
started in November 2009 and was completed by August 2010.  The
company has begun the trial runs of the plant from September 2010
and the commercial production is likely to start in November,
after
the completion of construction of 2 oil storage tanks. SISOPL is
expected to earn major portion of its revenues from
the oil extraction business and some of it from selling of de-
oiled rice bran. So far company has realised INR 0.15
crores of revenues, by selling the oil produced from the trial
runs of plant, at an average realization price INR 39,000/metric
ton.


STEEL PRODUCTS: CRISIL Assigns 'D' Rating to INR19.8MM Term Loan
----------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its 'D/P5' ratings to Steel Products Ltd bank
facilities.

   Facilities                          Ratings
   ----------                          -------
   INR19.80 Million Term Loan          D (Assigned)
   INR168.50 Million Cash Credit       D (Assigned)
   INR21.50 Million Letter of Credit   P5 (Assigned)
   INR170.00 Million Bank Guarantee    P5 (Assigned)

The rating reflects delay by SPL in servicing its term loan
obligations; the delays have been caused by SPL's weak liquidity
which is on account of stretched receivables.

SPL's weak financial risk profile is marked by high gearing and
weak debt protection measures; and the company's large working
capital requirements.  SPL, however benefits from its promoters'
experience in the steel industry and established relationship with
customers aided by long standing presence.

Steel Products Limited, based in Kolkata is engaged in
manufacturing of transmission line towers, sub station structures,
telecom towers and railway electrification structures.  The
company is managed by Mr. Hemant Kumar Khaitan. The company has
three manufacturing units used for galvanization and fabrication,
two in Howrah, West Bengal and one in Raipur, Chattisgarh with a
total installed capacity of 60,000 tonnes per annum.

The company has a strong customer base which includes companies
like ABB Limited (Rated AAA/Stable/P1+ by CRISIL), Nortel Networks
Corporation, Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (Rated
AAA/Stable/P1+ by CRISIL).  The company has an unexecuted order
book position of INR500 million.

SPL reported a provisional profit after tax (PAT) of INR13.9
million on net sales of INR499.8 million for 2009-10 (refers to
financial year, April 1 to March 31), against a loss of INR1.4
million on net sales of INR619.4 million for 2008-09.

JAPAN AIRLINES: Files Lawsuit Against Shizuoka Government
---------------------------------------------------------
Kyodo News reports that Japan Airlines Corp has filed a lawsuit
against the Shizuoka prefectural government seeking JPY152.95
million in subsidies for flights from Shizuoka to Fukuoka which
the government has refused to pay to the struggling airline.

According to Kyodo News, JAL filed the suit with the Tokyo
District Court in a bid to have the local government pay the money
based on a guarantee agreement between the two sides.

According to Kyodo News, the suit states the prefectural
government agreed to pay the carrier JPY15,800 per vacant seat if
the occupancy rate of JAL flights from Shizuoka airport, which
opened in June last year, falls below 70%.  But the Shizuoka
prefectural government has refused to pay the money, saying the
airline violated the principle of good faith by unilaterally
terminating its flight services at Shizuoka airport, Kyodo News
relates.

ORIX-NRL TRUST: S&P Downgrades Ratings on Various Certificates
--------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its ratings on the
class A to I trust certificates issued under the ORIX-NRL Trust 15
transaction and removed the ratings on classes A to C from
CreditWatch with negative implications, where they were placed on
Aug. 12, 2010.  At the same time, S&P affirmed its rating on the
class X trust certificates issued under the same transaction.

Out of the seven nonrecourse loans and three specified bonds
(effectively nine loans) that initially backed the transaction,
only seven loans (effectively seven loans; one loan and one
specified bond that have defaulted, and five loans that are due to
mature by the end of May 2012) remain.

S&P downgraded classes A to I because:

One remaining loan (the loan originally represented about 41% of
the total initial issuance amount of the trust certificates),
which has defaulted, is backed by 18 rental condominium buildings
(initially 20 condominium buildings, two of which have been sold)
and one retail building located in Tokyo.  S&P lowered its
assumption with regard to the likely collection amount from the
related collateral properties after considering the progress of
collection operations undertaken by the servicer.

One remaining specified bond (the specified bond originally
represented about 14.4% of the total initial issuance amount of
the trust certificates), which has defaulted, is backed by a
retail and office complex in Osaka Prefecture.  A major tenant of
the retail portion of the complex has given notice of departure.
From a report that S&P has received through the servicer, S&P has
learned that finding a new tenant will likely be difficult because
the portion of the complex to be vacated was designed to meet the
particular needs of the departing tenant.  S&P revised down
sharply its assumption with respect to the likely rent for the
portion of the complex to be vacated and lowered its assumption
with regard to the likely collection amount from the property
accordingly.

With regard to the five loans maturing by the end of May 2012, it
is S&P's view that a certain level of decline in the likely
collection amount from the related collateral properties appears
inevitable given the performance of the properties in question, as
well as the situation regarding real estate deals involving
similar asset types, among other factors.

S&P currently assume the combined value of the properties backing
the transaction's seven remaining loans to be about 66% of S&P's
initial underwriting value.

ORIX-NRL Trust 15 is a multi-borrower CMBS transaction.  The trust
certificates were initially secured by seven nonrecourse loans and
three specified bonds (tokutei shasai) extended/issued to nine
obligors, which were originally backed by 33 real estate
certificates and real estate properties.  The transaction was
arranged by ORIX Corp., and ORIX Asset Management & Loan Services
Corp. is the transaction servicer.

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 June 2014 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 I
certificates, and the timely payment of available interest for the
class X certificates.

* S&P Puts Ratings on Five Japanese CDOs on CreditWatch Positive
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services placed on CreditWatch with
positive implications its ratings on five tranches relating to
five Japanese synthetic CDO transactions.

rated overcollateralization levels in excess of 100% at higher
ratings than the current ratings during October's month-end run.

For the transactions that S&P ran on version 5.1, S&P applied the
top obligor and industry test SROCs, in addition to the Monte
Carlo default simulation results.

CRAFAR FARMS: IRD Refuses to Give GST Refunds to Chinese Buyer
--------------------------------------------------------------
Nick Krause at BusinessDay.co.nz reports that the Inland Revenue
is refusing to hand over GST refunds of NZ$24.4 million to UBNZ
Assets Holdings, the company leading the bid to buy 16 Crafar
dairy farms from the receiver, until it conducts further
investigations.

BusinessDay.co.nz relates Nick Malarao, IRD's lawyer, told the
High Court at Auckland that the company, one of several in the
UBNZ group belonging to businesswoman May Wang, filed two GST
returns for the March and May GST periods claiming refunds of
NZ$24.4 million "in respect of the Crafar Farm transaction".

According to BusinessDay.co.nz, Mr. Malarao said the law was
complex in this area but property buyers could claim GST if they
had a sales agreement in place.

The Crafar farms were sold under a May agreement for
NZ$213.2 million, pending Overseas Investment Office approval.

                         About Crafar Farms

Crafar Farms, New Zealand's largest family owned dairy business,
runs about 20,000 milking cows, and carries about 10,000 of other
stock.  The company employs 200 staff.

Crafar Farms was placed in receivership by its lenders Westpac
Banking Corp., Rabobank Groep and PGG Wrightson Finance.  The
banks are owed around NZ$200 million and put KordaMentha partners
Michael Stiassny and Brendon Gibson in as receivers after Crafar
Farms breached covenants on its loans.

The New Zealand Herald said CraFarms' banks have been working with
the Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry, Federated Farmers and
Fonterra to ease the Crafars out of their business.  This follows
multiple convictions for environmental lapses and animal neglect
in recent years and the revelation on September 28, 2009, from
interest.co.nz of animal neglect on one of its large farms in the
King Country near Benneydale.

LEGACY GROUP: PDIC Pays PHP11 Billion in Legacy Claims
------------------------------------------------------
The Philippine Deposit Insurance Corporation disclosed that as of
October 31, 2010, it had paid a total of PHP11 billion in deposit
insurance to depositors of the 12 closed banks collectively known
as the Legacy Banks.  This represents 77.6% of the total amount of
claims filed which registered at PHP14.2 billion.  Meanwhile,
claims aggregating PHP788 million or 5.5% of the amount of filed
claims were denied.  More than half of the denied claims were for
non-existent accounts.  The remainder was from accounts emanating
form fraudulent transactions.

Claims that had not been paid were for those that were document
deficient or put on hold for investigation or legal issues.  The
payment for document deficient claims will depend on depositor's
compliance with the requirements for these claims. Letters have
been sent to depositors/claimants concerned.  For claims subject
of further investigation, these may either be paid, or denied,
depending on the outcome of the investigation.

Claims processing was conducted with assistance from the Bangko
Sentral ng Pilipinas-accredited audit firms Constantino
Guadalquiver and Company, and Acyatan and Company.  This involved
combing through about 2,000 boxes of bank records in disarray and
painstakingly piecing together available documents to ensure that
only valid claims are paid.  The Legacy banks were closed almost
simultaneously and placed under PDIC receivership in December
2008.  The said banks and other affiliated companies belonging to
the Legacy Group were subject of congressional inquiry in 2009 due
to indications of widespread fraud.  PDIC was cautioned by
lawmakers to exercise diligence and prudence in paying Legacy
claims.

PDIC President Jose C. Nograles said that the Corporation
prudently and diligently processed claims as required by law.  He
said that the high percentage of paid claims is consistent with
the findings of forensic experts from Punongbayan and Araullo, an
affiliate of international audit firm, Grant and Thornton that in
general, funds did flow into the banks as deposits.  Although some
fraudulent transactions were uncovered, a large portion of the
accounts were found to be valid and hence were eligible for
deposit insurance.  This included accounts initially tagged as
"doubtful", and subsequently validated as a result of judicious
search for documents that were either missing or disarray.

Mr. Nograles however added that based on the P & A findings and
PDIC investigations, 26 cases have been filed so far against
owners and officers of the Legacy banks.  As stated in PDIC's
complaints, the fraud was committed not so much in deposit-taking
activities, but in the siphoning of funds generated from the
public.

                        About Legacy Group

Headquartered in Quezon City, Philippines, The Legacy Group --
http://www.legacy.com.ph/-- was a conglomerate of banks and pre-
need companies.  The banks offered various financial products and
the pre-need firms offered pension, education and memorial plans.
Other members of The Group provided credit cards, micro-lending
and automotive financing services.

                           *     *     *

The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas in 2008 placed 13 Legacy-member
rural banks under the receivership of the Philippine Deposit
Insurance Corporation due to insolvency.  The banks under
receivership are Rural Bank of Paranaque; Rural Bank of San Jose
(in Batangas); Pilipino Rural Bank (in Cebu); Rural Bank of Bais
(in Negros Oriental province); Bank of East Asia (in Cebu); First
Interstate Bank (Rural Bank of Kananga, Leyte), Inc.; Philippine
Countryside Bank (in Cebu); Dynamic Bank (Rural Bank of Calatagan,
in Batangas); San Pablo City Development Bank; Nation Bank (in
Bacolod City); Rural Bank of DARBCI (General Santos); Bicol
Development Bank (Legaspi City); and the Rural Bank of Carmen
(Cebu).

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific on
Jan. 27, 2009, the Philippine Daily Inquirer said that the Legacy
Group allegedly amassed between PHP15 billion and PHP25 billion in
deposits over the last three years due to an aggressive marketing
scheme, which promised depositors 20% in annual returns.  To
address risk concerns, the Inquirer stated, the cash deposits
were spread out through the Legacy chain of banks to keep each
deposit within the maximum limit of the PDIC.


LEGACY GROUP: Forensic Experts Confirm Siphoning of Funds
---------------------------------------------------------
The Philippine Deposit Insurance Corporation said that after
months of forensic audit involving the tracing of funds flows
through web-like transactions in the 12 closed banks collectively
known as the Legacy Banks, forensic experts from Punongbayan and
Araullo, an affiliate of international audit firm Grant Thornton
concluded that in general, funds did flow into the banks as
deposits.

According to the PDIC, although some fraudulent and suspicious
transactions were uncovered, a large portion of accounts were
found to be valid.  Suspected fraud occurred not so much in the
deposit-taking activities but in the siphoning of funds generated
from the public.  Punongbayan and Araullo was engaged by the PDIC
to assist in forensic audit of the Legacy banks which were almost
simultaneously closed and placed under PDIC receivership in
December 2008.

PDIC President Jose C. Nograles said that Punongbayan and Araullo
findings together with results of PDIC investigations led to the
filing of 26 cases against Legacy banks owners and officers
amounting to PHP8.4 billion.  As indicated in the complaints
filed, the Legacy banks aggressively solicited deposits from the
public by enticing them with double your money promotions and
other freebies, then siphoned off those deposits.  Mr. Nograles
said that it was moral hazard in its most despicable form, because
the risk undertaken by depositors who were lured by the promise of
extraordinarily high yields and freebies had been effectively
transferred to PDIC which had so far paid P11 billion in deposit
insurance.

The PDIC President said that moving forward, the deposit insurer
had successfully pushed for enhanced authorities in the amended
PDIC Charter to mitigate moral hazard. It had stepped up vigilance
against potential copycats.  He said that PDIC had issued new
Regulatory Issuances (RI) on record keeping and beneficial
ownership of accounts.  RIs on unsafe and unsound banking
practices and exclusions on deposit insurance coverage are being
crafted.

Last year, the Legacy banks and other related companies were
subject of Congressional investigations due to suspicions of
massive fraud.  Earlier, a sizeable number of accounts were tagged
as doubtful because missing documents and banks records in
disarray raised suspicions about those accounts.  Judicious search
enabled PDIC to piece together evidence that showed funds were
actually deposited.


PHILIPPINE AIRLINES: Union Ready to Launch Strike Next Week
-----------------------------------------------------------
The Philippine Daily Inquirer reports that a labor union of
Philippine Airlines Wednesday served notice that it was prepared
to hold a strike as early as next week as it accused the labor
secretary of issuing an invalid order legalizing the retrenchment
of 2,600 airline employees.

The Inquirer relates PAL Employees' Association (PALEA) president
Gerry Rivera declared the readiness of the union to fight for its
members' security of tenure.

"(Labor) Secretary (Rosalinda) Baldoz's decision forces us to
choose between two false choices . . . termination from regular
employment or strike.  We will strike," Mr. Rivera said at a
public hearing of the House committee on labor and employment,
according to the Inquirer.

According to the Inquirer, Mr. Rivera said the spin-off of PAL's
in-flight catering, airport services and call center reservation
operations to third party service providers was just the "first of
a series of outsourcing that PAL intends to implement" since it
had announced the outsourcing of other services such as medical
services and accounting.

"We assert that the outsourcing . . . is invalid and constituted
unfair labor practice," Mr. Rivera, citing three reasons --
outsourcing is banned by the existing collective bargaining
agreement; this is not justified by the PAL's financial situation;
and it will ultimately dissolve PALEA, the Inquirer relates.

While vowing to run to the courts and even going up to the Supreme
Court to contest Ms. Baldoz's ruling, the Inquirer notes,
Mr. Rivera said that as authorized by the PALEA board the "strike
can happen as early as next week."

"Before the end of the week we may conduct strike balloting, and
by Friday next week we shall be ready with the strike," he said,
warning of a "national crisis" if the strike ensued, the Inquirer
relates.

Mr. Rivera said the soon-to-be-terminated PAL employees
represented 70% of PALEA's membership, including 62% of the union
leadership, the Inquirer adds.

                     About Philippine Airlines

Philippine Airlines -- http://www.philippineairlines.com/-- is
the Philippines' national airline.  It was the first airline in
Asia and the oldest of those currently in operation.  With its
corporate headquarters in Makati City, Philippine Airlines flies
both domestic and international flights.  First taking off in
1941, the carrier has grown into a fleet of about 40 aircraft
(including five Boeing 747-400s) flying to more than 20 domestic
points and about 30 foreign destinations.

                           *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific on
April 21, 2010, the Manila Bulletin said that the Philippine
Airlines is to spin off its three non-core units as a last resort
to avoid bankruptcy.  PAL will spin off its three non-core units:
inflight catering services; airport services, including ground
handling, cargo handling and ramp handling; and call center
reservations, the Manila Bulletin said.  The PAL Employees Union
estimated that 2,000 to 4,000 employees assigned to those
departments could be retired.  PAL said competition from overseas
carriers, slower global economic growth, and higher oil prices had
prompted the airline to slash its non-core businesses.  The
carrier had approached several investors but failed to secure
financial help, and equity had dropped to a worrisome US$1.1
million as of February 2010, according to the Manila Standard.

The TCR-AP, citing BusinessWorld Online, reported on July 28,
2010, that Philippine Airlines announced a narrower loss for its
fiscal year that ended March 2010 to $14.3 million, from the
previous year's $297.8 million, but warned of still weak demand
for international flights.


PHILIPPINE AIRLINES: More Than Willing to Disclose Financial Books
------------------------------------------------------------------
GMANews.TV reports that Philippine Airlines is "more than willing"
to open its financial books and submit them to Congress for
scrutiny to prove that it is losing money and needs to retrench
2,600 of its employees.

"We are ready to submit, we have submitted today our audited
financial statement for the last three years.  We are more than
willing to submit whatever documents the committee will require,"
GMANews.TV quotes Jaime Bautista, PAL's president and chief
executive officer, as saying after a hearing at the House of
Representatives on Thursday.

GMANews.TV relates that during the hearing by the House labor
committee on the labor row between the PAL management and its
employees, Surigao del Sur Rep. Philip Pichay asked the flag
carrier to also submit its interim financial statement for January
to September 2010 operations.

According to GMANews.TV, Mr. Bautista said PAL suffered
substantial losses in the past years.  In fact, he said, PAL's
main competitor is now bigger than them in terms of domestic
operations.

"We lost PHP15 billion in the last two years. There were years
that we gained money, there were years that we lost money. But
there were more accumulated losses than profit," he said,
GMANews.TV adds.

Mr. Bautista, GMANews.TV notes, said this is the reason why they
decided to reduce their capacity and outsource its services such
as catering and airport services and call center reservations.

GMANews.TV reports that the Philippine Airlines Employees
Association (PALEA) said the flag carrier was just concealing its
true financial position to terminate workers and resort to the
more economical employment outsourcing.

GMANews.TV says Mr. Bautista said PAL even has to borrow money for
the separation pay of the 2,600 employees that will be retrenched
due to the outsourcing.

According to GMANews.TV, Mr. Bautista said the sale of the three
non-core units was only done as a last resort after 14 major cost-
cutting measures proved inadequate to guarantee PAL's continued
operations.  He also insisted that PAL is not engaging in
contractualization amid the hiring of third party service
providers, GMANews.TV adds.

Also during the hearing, GMANews.TV reports, Labor Secretary
Rosalinda Baldoz said she sees nothing wrong with her decision to
uphold the PAL management's prerogative to restructure its
organization, saying she remains convinced that it is "based on
solid grounds."

GMANews.TV relates Ms. Baldoz also ruled that the termination of
affected employees as a result of the spinoff is in accordance
with law, and that PAL is not liable for any unfair labor practice
as a result of said termination.

KING'S TOWN: Fitch Gives Positive Outlook; Affirms 'BB+' Rating
---------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has revised the rating Outlook on both the Long-term
Issuer Default Rating and National Long-term Rating of King's Town
Bank to Positive from Stable.  At the same time, the agency has
affirmed all its ratings.  A detailed list of all ratings actions
can be found at the end of this release.

The revision of KTB's Outlook to Positive reflects steps taken by
the bank which have improved loan quality and underwriting
standards.  It also considers new strategies implemented by the
bank, which appear to place it on a path to achieve prudent growth
and diversification.

KTB's IDR and Individual rating reflect its ability to maintain
strong core capitalization and sound liquidity, as well as ongoing
improvement in asset quality.  However, its ratings have been
constrained by a relative lack of diversification and the bank's
small franchise, which is geographically concentrated in south
Taiwan.  While the agency considers improved earnings quality
through diversification coupled with prudent asset growth to be
positive factors for its long-term ratings, any material weakening
of core capital and/or increased risk-taking behavior would likely
result in KTB's ratings not being upgraded.

KTB's strategic intention is to develop into a niche financier in
Taiwan's financial industry with a focus on risk-adjusted returns
by leveraging on relationships with its core customer base in its
home market.  The agency views KTB's strategy positively, and
believes the bank's higher loan spreads could continue to be
supported by its focused approach, given proper execution.

The bank's profitability improved notably in 9M10, with an
annualized return on equity of 15.0%, compared with 0.2% and 0.5%
in 2009 and 2008 respectively.  This much improved earning
performance was due mainly to a substantial decline in provision
charges, while higher net interest income also helped to lift
KTB's earnings.  Fitch expects KTB to deliver reasonably good
earnings in H210 and 2011, driven by a moderate increase in net
interest income arising from possible interest rate increases by
the central bank, higher fees and anticipation the bank will
continue to manage credit costs effectively.

The bank's loan book quality is good.  Its non-performing loans
were low at 0.5% at end-Q310 and were more than fully provided
for, with reserves at 2.9x NPLs.  Furthermore, new formations of
NPLs have been minimal since 2009.  KTB is strongly capitalized,
with a Tier 1 ratio of 12.3% and a capital adequacy ratio of 13.0%
at end-Q310.  Liquidity is also deemed to be satisfactory, thanks
to its well-established franchise in south Taiwan.  The bank's
loan-to-deposit ratio was reasonably low at 74.2% while its
liquidity reserve was adequate at 20.2% at end-H110, above the
regulatory requirement of 7%.

KTB was originally a Tainan-based cooperative savings company
established in 1948, and was listed on the Taiwan Stock Exchange
in 1983.  Through a TWD3.6 billion rights issue in 2005 to
recapitalize the bank, the Tsai family and their investment
associates emerged as KTB's largest shareholder, with an overall
stake of 30.9%, and appointed two of the bank's six board members.

King's Town Bank

  -- Long-term foreign currency IDR affirmed at 'BB+'; Outlook
     revised to Positive from Stable;

  -- Short-term foreign currency IDR affirmed at 'B';

  -- National Long-term rating affirmed at 'A-(twn)'; Outlook
     revised to Positive from Stable;

  -- National Short-term rating affirmed at 'F1(twn)';

  -- Individual rating affirmed at 'C/D';

  -- Support rating affirmed at '5'; and

  -- Support Rating Floor affirmed at 'NF'.

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.
