RIVIERA: 90 Jobs Axed as Bankers Accept Buyout Offer
----------------------------------------------------
Nick Nichols at goldcoast.com.au reports that luxury boatbuilder
Riviera was rocked by a new wave of job losses after the
company's bankers accepted a buyout offer from Gold Coast
businessman Rodney Longhurst.

About 90 Riviera workers have been given their marching orders in
scenes reminiscent of 2009, when the company nearly collapsed due
to massive debt and dwindling global sales, goldcoast.com.au
says.

According to the report, the job cull began March 8 when workers
at Riviera's Coomera factory were briefed on the sale, which will
see former chief executive Wes Moxey return to the company helm.

The report relates that receivers from Deloitte issued the
retrenchment notices, cutting the number of staff and contractors
employed by Riviera from about 450 to 340.

Financial details of the Riviera sale have not been disclosed but
some estimates put the deal as low as AUD18 million, the report
notes.

According to goldcoast.com.au, Mr. Longhurst, owner of The Boat
Works facility at Coomera, has bought Riviera through his private
company Longhurst Marine Holdings.  He bumped off a rival bid of
about $30 million from Riviera founder Bill Barry-Cotter, the
report notes.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific on
May 12, 2009, Riviera was placed into voluntary receivership.
Deloitte partners Chris Campbell, Vaughan Strawbridge and Richard
Hughes were appointed receivers and managers of Riviera.
According to the Brisbane Times, Mr. Campbell said the company's
sales over the past 12 months had been "significantly impacted"
by the global financial crisis.  It was proposed to sell Riviera
as a going concern after a restructuring of the company, he said.

Riviera, which was released from voluntary administration in
June 2010, now has a combined workforce of about 400, including
contractors, goldcoast.com.au discloses.  At its peak, the
company employed about 1,200 staff, goldcoast.com.au disclosed.

Riviera -- http://www.riviera.com.au/-- is a luxury boat builder
based in Australia.

CENTRAL CHINA: Consent Solicitation No Impact on Ratings
--------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service says that there is no immediate impact
on Central China Real Estates Ltd's Ba3 corporate family and B1
senior unsecured ratings from the company's consent solicitation.

The ratings outlook remains stable.

CCRE is soliciting the consent of its bondholders for certain
amendments and waivers in relation to the technical breaches to
limitations on affiliate transactions and restricted payments
stipulated in its USD300 million, 12.25% senior notes due 2015.

The company is offering a consent fee of 50 basis points and
requires the consent of the majority of its bondholders. The
solicitation period will expire at 5:00 p.m. EST on March 16,
2012.

"These technical breaches, which happened in 2010 and 2011,
suggest weak internal compliance controls. In response, the
company is now putting in place various initiatives and adding
resources to its compliance controls," says Ken Chan, a Moody's
Vice President and Senior Analyst.

"We believe the technical breaches will not materially affect
CCRE's business fundamentals. Its operating performance has been
strong, evident from its contracted sales of RMB8.1 billion in
2011, which was 11% higher than its own target," says Mr. Chan.
"CCRE has a good liquidity position, with cash of around RMB3.9
billion as of December 2011."

Moody's expects CCRE to obtain the required consent from the
bondholders to pass the proposed amendments and waivers within
the solicitation period.

Moody's will also monitor the formation of the compliance team at
CCRE.

The principal methodology used in these ratings was Moody's
Global Homebuilding Industry, published in March 2009.

Central China Real Estate Limited is a leading property developer
in Henan Province, China. Founded in 1992, it listed on the Hong
Kong Stock Exchange in June 2008.

KWG PROPERTY: S&P Affirms 'BB-' Corporate Credit Rating
-------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services affirmed its 'BB-' long-term
corporate credit rating on China-based property developer KWG
Property Holding Ltd. "The outlook is stable. At the same time,
we affirmed the 'B+' issue rating on the company's outstanding
senior unsecured notes. We also affirmed our 'cnBB+' Greater
China credit scale rating on KWG and our 'cnBB' issue rating on
its senior unsecured notes," S&P said.

"We affirmed the ratings on KWG to reflect our view that the
company's financial performance will likely remain satisfactory
in 2012 despite continued weakness in China's property market,"
said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Steffi Chen. "We believe
the company can achieve the same level of property sales in 2012
as a year earlier due to its improving geographic and product
diversification, good execution capability, and consistent
financial management."

"In our opinion, KWG has exercised better execution and
demonstrated more consistent financial management than its
similarly rated peers to counteract the government's tightening
measures and weak market sentiment. Our view is reflected in
KWG's improved financial performance and credit metrics in 2011,"
S&P said.

"KWG's financial management has been consistent, in our view,
even though the company's track record is short. KWG has
cautiously managed its leverage and expansion ahead of the latest
property market downturn. The company's liquidity is 'adequate',
as defined in our criteria. We expect its liquidity sources to
exceed uses by 1.2x or more in 2012," S&P said.

"In our base-case scenario, we expect KWG's credit protection
measures to remain satisfactory and at a level similar to that of
2011. The visibility over the company's financial performance in
2012 is high because the company has Chinese renminbi 8.3 billion
in contracted sales that can be brought forward for revenue
recognition," S&P said.

"The stable outlook reflects the good visibility over KWG's
financial performance, which we expect to remain satisfactory in
2012, as reflected in its credit metrics,' said Ms. Chen. We
expect KWG to continue to manage its expansion and balance sheet,
particularly its leverage, within our expectations," S&P said.

"We may lower the rating if KWG's debt-funded expansion is more
aggressive than we expected. We could also downgrade the company
if its property sales or profitability weaken significantly. This
could happen if its liquidity for the next 12 months weakens such
that its cash sources are less than 1.2x its cash uses or its
ratio of debt-to-EBITDA rises above 5x," S&P said.

"We may raise the rating if KWG's property development projects
become more diversified and it establishes a track record of
consistent and disciplined financial management while pursuing
expansion. In particular, we could upgrade KWG if the company
sustains an EBITDA margin of more than 30% and a ratio of debt-
to-EBITDA of less than 3.5x," S&P said.

BANK OF INDIA: Moody's Cuts Hybrid Tier 1 Debt Rating to 'Ba3'
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has downgraded by one notch the ratings
assigned to the various debt programs of Bank of India.

The revised ratings are:

(P)Baa3 for foreign currency senior unsecured debt program

Baa3 for foreign currency senior unsecured debt

(P)Ba1 for foreign currency subordinated debt program

Ba1 for foreign currency subordinated debt

(P)Ba2 for foreign currency junior subordinated debt program and

  Ba3 for hybrid tier 1 debt (preferred stock non-cumulative).

The outlook on the debt and deposit ratings is affirmed at
stable.

BOI raises foreign currency debt through its London and Jersey
branches.

"These downgrades are driven by our revision of BOI's bank
financial strength rating (BFSR) from D+ to D, now mapping to a
baseline credit assessment (BCA) of Ba2. The outstanding local
currency deposit rating is downgraded by one notch to Baa3/P-3
from Baa2/P-2, whereas the foreign currency deposit rating is
affirmed at Baa3/P-3, and is no longer constrained by the country
ceiling," says Vineet Gupta, a Moody's Vice President and Senior
Analyst.

Rating Rationale

The revised BFSR takes into account the accelerated pace of
deterioration in BOI's asset quality, its stressed core capital
levels and therefore the increasing pressures on its
profitability.

The BFSR rating also factors in its high single-party exposure to
Indian government securities and the government's role in
providing management support for Indian public-sector banks.

Moody's expects that it will be difficult for BOI to
significantly improve its relatively weak asset quality over the
next 12 -18 months. The Indian operating environment is
characterized by an economic slowdown, high interest rates, and
high inflation, which together will continue to adversely impact
the repayment capacity of corporate borrowers. Such a situation
poses risks of further deterioration in the bank's asset quality.

Moody's views, as evidence of this trend, the rapid increase in
the formation rate of non-performing loans (NPL) at BOI to 3.2%
on an annualized basis during the 9 months ended December 2011
from 1.7% for the year-ended March 2011.

Moody's analysis also considers the bank's comparatively low
provisioning cover as well as its recent sharper decline in net
income relative to its Ba1-rated peers. This includes a 14% drop
in net income levels, while its return on risk weighted assets
decreased to 1.03% on an annualized basis during the 9 months
ended December 2011 from 1.51% a year ago.

Such figures compare weakly with its peers and indicate a
vulnerability in the bank's already stressed capital buffers.

In addition, its core tier 1 capital level stood at 7% as of 31
March, 2011, and which not only compares weak against its peers,
but is also exacerbated by low internal capital generation of
under 1% of risk weighted assets.

On the other hand, the ratings also reflect BOI's comfortable
liquidity and funding profiles, as well as its franchise value as
the fourth largest public-sector bank in India in terms of total
assets.

The rating outlook and D BFSR would come under pressure within
the next 12 months, if BOI continues to experience the pace of
deterioration in asset quality, capitalization and profitability
indicators seen for the 9 months ended December 2011.

The supported ratings of its senior debt program at (P)Baa3,
subordinated debt program at (P)Ba1, and junior subordinated debt
at Ba2 could also be downgraded if the assumptions regarding
support available to BOI or Moody's notching principles underwent
any change.

In the current prevailing Indian operating environment, Moody's
does not expect BOI's D BFSR and supported ratings for local
currency deposits at Baa3/P-3 to be upgraded over next 12-18
months.

The methodologies used in this rating were Bank Financial
Strength Ratings: Global Methodology published in February 2007,
Incorporation of Joint-Default Analysis into Moody's Bank
Ratings: A Refined Methodology published in March 2007, and
Moody's Guidelines for Rating Bank Hybrid Securities and
Subordinated Debt published in November 2009.

BOI, headquartered in Mumbai, had assets of INR3,511 billion as
of March 31, 2011.


BCC INFRACON: CARE Assigns 'CARE B+' Rating to INR4cr Loan
----------------------------------------------------------
CARE assigns 'CARE B+' and 'CARE A4' ratings to the bank
facilities of BCC Infracon Pvt Ltd.

   Facilities                  (INR crore)   Ratings
   -----------                 -----------   -------
   Long-term Bank Facilities       4.00      CARE B+ Assigned
   Short-term Bank Facilities      5.00      CARE A4 Assigned

Rating Rationale

The ratings are constrained by the moderate financial profile of
BCC marked by declining income, moderate profitability and the
overall gearing along with elongated working capital cycle,
limited segmental diversity and concentrated order book in the
few clients. However, the ratings are underpinned by the
experienced promoter, reputed clientele and satisfactory order
book position.

The ability of the company to increase its scale of operations
along-with timely receipt of payments from debtors and improve
the liquidity position are the key rating sensitivities.

BCC Infracon Pvt Ltd was incorporated in May 2009 by Mr. P Ranga
Raju along with his wife Mrs. P Hema Malini in order to take over
the business of the partnership firm Brothers Construction
Corporation. The firm was incorporated in 1992 by Mr. Raju along
with his two brothers to do the business of civil construction on
contractual basis. During February 2010, the business of the
partnership firm was taken over by BCC.

During FY11 (refers to the period April 1 to March 31), BCC has
made a PAT of INR0.31cr (INR0.30cr for FY10) on a total income of
INR8.43 cr (INR8.53 cr for FY10).


DATTA AGRO: CARE Assigns 'CARE BB' Rating to INR14.94cr Loan
------------------------------------------------------------
CARE assigns 'CARE BB' and 'CARE A4' ratings to the bank
facilities of Datta Agro Services Pvt Ltd.

   Facilities                  (INR crore)   Ratings
   -----------                 -----------   -------
   Long-term Bank Facilities       14.94     CARE BB Assigned
   Short-term Bank Facilities       8.00     CARE A4 Assigned

Rating Rationale

The ratings of Datta Agro Services Private Limited are primarily
constrained by the short track record of manufacturing operations
in the highly fragmented and regulated fertilizer industry and
leveraged capital structure on account of recently completed
debt-funded capex. The ratings are further constrained by the
volatility associated with raw material prices, foreign exchange
fluctuation risk and high dependence on monsoon.

The above constraints are partially offset by the long standing
track record of the promoters in the fertilizers industry,
DASPL's proximity to the consumer market and established
marketing network.

DASPL's ability to increase its market presence and improvement
in profitability margins along with effective working capital
management and any adverse government policies towards the
fertilizer industry are the key rating sensitivities.

                         About Datta Agro

Jalgaon-based Datta Agro Services Pvt Ltd was promoted by Mr.
Murlidhar Patil for manufacturing of Single Super Phosphate (SSP)
fertilizer in 2007. DASPL's manufacturing plant is having an
installed capacity of 1,32,000 Metric Tonne Per Annum (MTPA). The
company started manufacturing operations from September 2011 and
markets its product under brand name "Satpuda".


KESAR ENTERPRISES: CARE Reaffirms 'BB' Rating to INR197cr Loans
---------------------------------------------------------------
CARE reaffirms the ratings assigned to the bank facilities of
Kesar Enterprises Ltd.

   Facilities                  (INR crore)   Ratings
   -----------                 -----------   -------
   Long-term loans               131.23      'CARE BB' Reaffirmed
   Long-term Bank Facilities      66.30      'CARE BB' Reaffirmed
   Short-term Bank Facilities      0.20      'CARE A4' Reaffirmed

Rating Rationale

The ratings continue to be constrained by weak financial
performance in FY11 (refers to the period July 1 to June 30)
characterized by decline in profitability margins and high
gearing levels. Further, the ratings continue to be constrained
by the ongoing debt funded capital expenditure and the cyclical
and highly regulated nature of the sugar industry.

However, the ratings derive strength from long track record and
experience of the promoters and professional management of Kesar
Enterprises Ltd. and its status as a proposed fully integrated
sugar unit post setting up of the proposed cogen power plant.

The company's ability to improve the financial risk profile in
terms of profitability and capital structure and timely and
successful commissioning of ongoing cogen project remains key
rating sensitivities.

                     About Kesar Enterprises

Kesar Enterprises Ltd., originally established as Kesar Sugar
Works Ltd. by Shri Kilachand Devchand in October 1933, was
renamed to its present name in 1985. KEL set up its sugar factory
with installed capacity of 800 TCD at Baheri, Dist: Bareilly,
Uttar Pradesh. Over the years the installed capacity of the sugar
plant has been increased to 7200 TCD. To mitigate the seasonal
and cyclical impact of the sugar business, the company also set
up a molasses based distillery with a capacity of 50 KLPD for the
manufacture of Extra Neutral Alcohol, Rectified Spirit (RS) and
Indian Made Foreign Liquor. In order to complete integration and
reduce power costs, KEL has undertaken to set up a fully
automated bagasse fired co-generation power plant of 44MW which
is expected to commence power generation from April 2012. KEL
also has Agrotech & Seed division which are into development of
pesticides and both Hybrid and Open Pollinated varieties of
seeds.

The company had a storage division which was demerged into a
separate company, viz. Kesar Terminals and Infrastructure Limited
w.e.f. January 1, 2009.

During FY11, KEL registered a total income of INR 371.01 crore
with PAT of INR 3.62 crore as compared to total income of
INR203.63 crore and PAT of INR 4.39 crore in FY10.


KUNJA BINODINI: CARE Rates INR5cr Longterm Loan at 'CARE BB'
------------------------------------------------------------
CARE assigns 'CARE BB' rating to the bank facilities of Kunja
Binodini Charitable Trust.

   Facilities                  (INR crore)   Ratings
   -----------                 -----------   -------
   Long-term bank facilities       5.0       CARE BB Assigned

Rating Rationale

The rating is constrained by the short track record of operations
of the trust, regulated and fragmented nature of the education
sector leading to high competition and high debt equity ratio.
The constraints are partially offset by experience of the
trustees, high enrolment rate in the institution on the back of
satisfactory infrastructure and experienced faculty members,
diverse course curriculum and buoyant prospects of educational
sector in India.

Ability to sustain and improve current enrolment rate and
establishment of strong brand image by the institution will be
the key rating sensitivities.

Kunja Binodini Charitable Trust was formed in the year 2007 as a
public charitable trust registered under Section 12A of the
Income Tax Act, to establish an Engineering and Management
college in Bhubaneswar (Odisha). Engineering college commenced
operations in the academic year 2008-2009 under the name of "Hi-
Tech Institute of Technology". Other courses like Master of
Business Administration (MBA), B. Tech (Information Technology)
etc. were included afterwards.

The College is approved by All India Council for Technical
Education (AICTE) and affiliated to "Biju Patnaik University of
Technology". The day to day activities of the trust are managed
by Mr Tirupati Panigrahi (Chairman), who is assisted by other
trustees (the members of aforesaid committee). He is also the
chairman of Vigyan Bharati Charitable Trust (rated 'CARE
BB'/'CARE A4'), which runs a number of education institutes,
medical colleges & hospitals.

KBCT earned a surplus before interest & depreciation of
INR2.4 crore and a net surplus of INR0.8 crore on net revenue of
INR5.4 crore in FY11 (refers to the period from April 2010 to
March 2011).


LUXMI RICE: CARE Rates INR7cr Long Term Loan at 'CARE B'
--------------------------------------------------------
CARE assigns 'CARE B' rating to the bank facility of Luxmi Rice
Mills.

   Facilities                  (INR crore)   Ratings
   -----------                 -----------   -------
   Long term bank facilities        7.0      'CARE B' Assigned

Rating Rationale

The rating assigned by CARE is based on the capital deployed by
the proprietor and the financial strength of the firm at present.
The rating may undergo change in case of withdrawal of the
capital or the unsecured loans brought in by the proprietor in
addition to the financial performance and other relevant factors.

The rating is constrained by weak financial position owing to
high working capital intensity & reliance on unsecured debt to
fund capital requirement, high level of government regulations
and seasonal nature of rice industry with exposure to vagaries of
nature. The rating is also constrained by its proprietorship
nature of the constitution with small size of operation. However,
the rating is underpinned by the experience of proprietor, long
track record of operation and proximity to raw material sources.

LRM's ability to improve the profitability margins, liquidity
position & capital structure thorough effective management of
working capital would remain the key rating sensitivities.

M/s. Luxmi Rice Mill, a proprietorship firm, was setup in the
year 1983 by Shri Roshan Lal.  The firm is engaged in milling and
processing of rice and currently, has a processing capacity of 1
tonne per hour (TPH). The mill is situated in Nissing village in
Karnal district, Haryana, where more than 200 rice mills are
operating.

During FY11 (refers to the period from April 1 to March 31), LRM
had reported a net sales of INR14.9 crore (FY10: INR16.2 crore)
and a PAT of INR0.04 crore (FY10: INR0.03 crore).


MARUTI GRANITES: CARE Assigns 'CARE BB' Rating to INR7cr Loan
-------------------------------------------------------------
CARE assigns 'CARE BB' and 'CARE A4' ratings to the bank
facilities of Maruti Granites And Marbles Pvt Ltd.

   Facilities                  (INR crore)   Ratings
   -----------                 -----------   -------
   Long-term Bank Facilities       7.00      CARE BB Assigned
   Short-term Bank Facilities      3.50      CARE A4 Assigned

Rating Rationale

The ratings are constrained by Maruti Granites and Marbles
Private Limited's low capacity utilization levels leading to thin
profitability margins, moderate liquidity position marked by long
operating cycle and impact of Government regulations on the
marble industry. The ratings are further constrained by project
implementation risk and competition from substitutes in the
industry. The ratings however, recognize the experience of the
promoters, established track record of the company, growth in
revenue and the company's captive quarries with mining rights.
Its ability to improve operating cycle while managing inventory
holding days and complete the project within the envisaged cost
and time parameters would by the key rating sensitivities.

                       About Maruti Granites

Maruti Granites & Marbles Private Limited was incorporated in the
year 1987 by its Directors, Mr. Paras Rajgarhia, Mr Prakash
Rajgarhia and Mr. Prabhash Rajgarhia. MGMPL's line of

MARUTI PRODUCTS: CARE Assigns 'CARE B+' Rating to INR12.44cr Loan
-----------------------------------------------------------------
CARE assigns 'CARE B+' rating to the bank facilities of Maruti
Products Pvt Ltd.

   Facilities                  (INR crore)   Ratings
   -----------                 -----------   -------
   Long-term Bank Facilities       12.44     CARE B+ Assigned

Rating Rationale

The rating is primarily constrained on account of nascent stage
of operations of Maruti Products Pvt. Ltd. with limited
experience of the promoters in the Steel billets industry and
leveraged capital structure. The rating are further constrained
due to the fragmented nature of the industry with high degree of
competition and volatility associated with raw material prices.
These constraints outweigh the benefits derived from qualified
promoters and key management personnel with rich experience in
industry.

Ability to achieve the envisaged level of sales and managing raw
material price volatility risk coupled with improvement in
capital structure are the key rating sensitivities.

NIIL INFRASTRUCTURES: CARE Rates INR34cr LT Loan at 'CARE B+'
-------------------------------------------------------------
CARE assigns 'CARE B+' rating to the bank facilities of Niil
Infrastructures Limited.

   Facilities                  (INR crore)   Ratings
   -----------                 -----------   -------
   Long-term Bank Facilities       34.00     CARE B+ Assigned

Rating Rationale

The rating is primarily constrained on account of project
implementation risk associated in light of delay in sole real
estate project of NIIL Infrastructure Limited coupled with lower
booking status and the inherent risk associated with the real
estate industry in light of the rising interest rate scenario.

The rating, however, favorably takes into account the rich
promoters' experience in the real estate industry through other
group concerns.  Successful completion of the projects as per
schedule with timely receipt of envisaged booking advances and
impact on cash flow due to higher usage of surplus funds for
projects other than envisaged are the key rating sensitivities.

                  About Nikhil Infrastructures

Nikhil Infrastructures Indus Ltd. was incorporated on October 9,
2007 as a limited company to carry out the real estate business.
On April 7, 2010 the name of the company was changed to NIIL

OSWAL CABLES: CARE Assigns 'CARE BB+' Rating to INR26.66cr Loan
---------------------------------------------------------------
CARE assigns 'CARE BB+' and 'CARE A4+' ratings to the bank
facilities of Oswal Cables Pvt. Ltd.

   Facilities                  (INR crore)   Ratings
   -----------                 -----------   -------
   Long-term Bank Facilities      26.66      CARE BB+ Assigned
   Short-term Bank Facilities     55.00      CARE A4+ Assigned

Rating Rationale

The ratings are constrained by the modest scale of operations of
Oswal Cables Pvt. Ltd., its declining profit margins, leveraged
capital structure and high working capital intensity of its
operations. The ratings are further constrained by the
susceptibility of its margins to adverse raw material price
fluctuations and its presence in a highly competitive and tender-
driven business with subdued outlook of cable & conductor
industry.

The ratings, however, draw strength from the vast experience of
the promoters and established track record of operations of OCPL.
Increase in scale of operations, improvement in profitability in
the wake of fluctuating raw material prices and efficient working
capital management are the key rating sensitivities.

Incorporated in 1971, OCPL is promoted by Mr. Laxmi Chand Talera
and is engaged in manufacturing aluminium conductors, cables and
transformers for overhead power transmission and distribution
lines at its manufacturing facilities in Jaipur and Hyderabad.
OCPL also has a presence in engineering, procurement and
construction (EPC) segment for turnkey transmission
and distribution projects wherein it benefits from its
established presence in conductors and power cables business.

During FY11 (refers to the period April 1 to March 31), OCPL
earned a PAT of INR2.97 crore on a total operating income of
INR96.73 crore as against a PAT of INR2.73 crore on a total
operating income of INR80.89 crore in FY10.


SHINDE DEVELOPERS: CARE Assigns 'CARE B' Rating to INR24.5cr Loan
-----------------------------------------------------------------
CARE assigns 'CARE B' and 'CARE A4' ratings to the bank
facilities of Shinde Developers Pvt Ltd.

   Facilities                  (INR crore)   Ratings
   -----------                 -----------   -------
   Long-term Bank Facilities      24.50      CARE B Assigned
   Short-term Bank Facilities     45.00      CARE A4 Assigned

Rating Rationale

The ratings are constrained by below average financial risk
profile characterized by high gearing and stretched liquidity,
fixed price contracts exposing profitability to adverse movement
in the raw material prices and exposure to geographical and
client concentration risk in the existing order book.

However, the ratings derive strength from the experience of the
promoters and strong order book position providing medium-term
revenue visibility.

Ability of the company to improve the liquidity profile remains
the key rating sensitivity.

Incorporated on Sept. 19, 1997, Shinde Developers Private Limited
is engaged in the infrastructure development, executing civil
projects such as construction and designing of roads and
highways, bridges, tunnels, dams, canals, irrigation etc. SDPL is
promoted by Mr. Sunil B. Shinde. The company receives
construction related contracts both from the government
departments as well as private sector companies.

SDPL reported a PAT of INR4.57 crore on a total operating income
of INR66.35 crore for FY11 (refers to the period April 1 to
March 31) as compared to a PAT of INR2.92 crore on a total
operating income of INR60.63 crore for FY10. Furthermore, during
the period of nine months ending Dec. 31, 2011, SDPL reported a
PAT of INR0.81 crore on a total operating income of
INR54.75 crore.


SHRI LAXMAN: CARE Rates INR6cr Long-Term Loan at 'CARE B+'
----------------------------------------------------------
CARE assigns 'CARE B+' rating to the bank facilities of Shri
Laxman Education Trust.

   Facilities                  (INR crore)   Ratings
   -----------                 -----------   -------
   Long-term Bank Facilities       6.00      CARE B+ Assigned

Rating Rationale

The rating of Shri Laxman Education Trust is primarily
constrained due to its very short track record of operations due
to the recent start of the greenfield school project and lack of
experience of the promoters in the field of education. The rating
also factors in high level of competition from various
established schools in the region and the highly regulated
education industry. Above constraints are partially offset by
tie-up with Delhi Public School Society for its school
operations.

Ability to attract the students and achieve the envisaged
enrolment would be the key rating sensitivity.

Gwalior (M.P.) based, Shri Laxman Education Trust was
incorporated in 2009 as trust under the Madhya Pradesh Sarvajanik
Nyas Adhiniyam Act, 1951 by Mr. Sanjay Garg and Mrs. Anjali Garg
with the object of setting up educational institutions. SLET has
recently commissioned the school and entered into a JV with Delhi
Public School Society (DPSS) which is running more than 130 DPSs
(K-12 schools) all over the country.


VERITAS BIOVENTIONS: CARE Rates INR17.15cr Loan at 'CARE BB-'
-------------------------------------------------------------
CARE assigns 'CARE BB-' rating to the bank facilities of
Veritas Bioventions Private Limited.

   Facilities                  (INR crore)   Ratings
   -----------                 -----------   -------
   Long-term Bank Facilities       17.15     CARE BB- Assigned

Rating Rationale

The rating is primarily constrained on account of high project
risk due to delay in its implementation, yet to establish
marketing network and leverage capital structure of Veritas
Bioventions Private Limited.  The rating is further constrained
by competition from global players in the medical devices
industry.

The rating, however, favorably takes into account experience of
the promoters, qualified management team, financial support from
the holding company and well-equipped manufacturing facilities.

The company's ability to achieve envisaged sales and
profitability coupled with timely receipt of regulatory approvals
are the key rating sensitivities.

Vapi-based VBPL was incorporated in 2009. VBPL is a 51%
subsidiary of Vapi Care Pharma Private Limited.  VBPL is engaged
in design, development and manufacturing of Dental Implant
and Operation Kit, Coronary Stent and Cardiovascular Accessories
& Devices. VBPL's manufacturing facility is located at GIDC
industrial estate of Vapi and had started its trial production in
September 2011.


VIR ALLOYS: CARE Assigns 'CARE BB' Rating to INR26.5cr LT Loan
--------------------------------------------------------------
CARE assigns 'CARE BB' and 'CARE A4' rating to the bank
facilities of Vir Alloys and Steel Co Pvt Ltd.

   Facilities                  (INR crore)   Ratings
   -----------                 -----------   -------
   Long-term Bank Facilities       26.50     CARE BB Assigned
   Short-term Bank Facilities      18.25     CARE A4 Assigned
   Long/ST Bank Facilities          3.00     CARE BB/A4 Assigned

Rating Rationale

The ratings are constrained by small size of operations, thin
profitability margins and low debt service indicators. The
ratings are further constrained by limited product offerings,
significant customer concentration in MS Ingots, volatility of
input prices of steel scrap resulting in high inventory carrying
risk and cyclical nature of the steel industry.

The ratings however, derive strength from the experience of the
promoters and their funding support in form of equity infusions
and long association with the clients.

The company's ability to efficiently market its casting products
and achieve projected turnover and profitability while
efficiently managing working-capital amidst price volatility are
the key rating sensitivities.

Incorporated in 1983, VASCPL is engaged in manufacturing of mild
steel and alloy steel products. The promoter Mr. D.V. Aggrawal
has five decades of experience in the industry and is ably
supported by experienced professionals. VASCPL has an installed
capacity of 24000 MT since commencement of production.

During FY11, VASCPL posted net sales of INR128.81 crore and a PAT
of INR0.64 crore.


ZED VITRIFIED: CARE Puts 'CARE B+' Rating on INR17.95cr LT Loan
---------------------------------------------------------------
CARE assigns 'CARE B+' and 'CARE A4' ratings to the bank
facilities of Zed Vitrified Pvt Ltd.

   Facilities                  (INR crore)   Ratings
   -----------                 -----------   -------
   Long-term Bank Facilities      17.95      CARE B+ Assigned
   Short-term Bank Facilities      1.00      CARE A4 Assigned

Rating Rationale

The ratings assigned to the bank facilities of Zed Vitrified
Private Limited are constrained on account of the recently
commissioned greenfield vitrified tiles manufacturing project
which is predominantly debt-funded, susceptibility of its
operating margins to volatile fuel and raw material prices. The
ratings are further constrained on account of ZVPL's presence in
a highly competitive and fragmented tiles industry wherein demand
is linked to the cyclical real estate industry. The above
constraints far offset the benefits derived from the vast
experience of the promoters of ZVPL in the tiles industry and
benefits from being located in ceramic tile hub of Gujarat with
easy access to raw material and labor.

Timely stabilization of the recently setup manufacturing facility
and achieving the envisaged level of sales while managing raw
material and fuel price volatility are the key rating
sensitivities.

                       About Zed Vitrified

Incorporated in May 2010, Zed Vitrified Private Limited is
promoted by Morbi-based five entrepreneurs. ZVPL has recently
commissioned a green-field project for manufacturing of the
ceramic vitrified tiles with an installed capacity of 36,000 MTPA
at Morbi in Gujarat which finds usage in both commercial as well
as residential buildings. The total cost of the project was
INR23.93 crore with a debt-equity ratio of 1.99 times. ZVPL has
commenced production from April 2011.

AIJ INVESTMENT: Human Holdings to Seek Compensation for Losses
--------------------------------------------------------------
Bloomberg News reports that Human Holdings Co., the school and
health care company that has plunged 10 percent since disclosing
it was a client of suspended AIJ Investment Advisors Co., pledged
to seek compensation for losses from the asset manager.

Human Holdings is speaking with its lawyers to see if it can
claim damages for possible losses on the JPY330 million that AIJ
managed for the company as of Dec. 31, Yusuke Kawashita, an
executive officer, told Bloomberg in an interview.

According to Bloomberg, the impact on net income from any losses
on Human Holdings' investment won't exceed JPY330 million,
Mr. Kawashita said, without specifying an amount or when it would
book any charge.

"We find it very regrettable that the reported performance was
unrealistic and untrue," Bloomberg quotes Mr. Kawashita as
saying. "We are now in discussions on how to legally claim as
much compensation as possible."

According to Bloomberg, Mr. Kawashita said Human Holdings was
founded in 2002 and started investing money through AIJ that
year. The company is one of the few Japanese clients of AIJ that
didn't invest pension assets. All except two of AIJ's 120
domestic contracts were with pension funds as of Dec. 31, 2010,
Bloomberg discloses, citing a regulatory filing submitted by the
fund manager last March.

Bloomberg adds that Mr. Kawashita said Human may pursue legal
action once the Securities and Exchange Surveillance Commission,
the FSA's investigative arm, finishes inspecting AIJ.

The regulator may extend its one-month suspension as
investigations into the asset manager expand to Hong Kong, two
government officials told Bloomberg.

One of the officials said that Japanese authorities called on
their Hong Kong counterparts to help find out what happened to
the JPY185.3 billion in assets managed by AIJ and determine any
wrongdoing, Bloomberg relays.

Tokyo-based AIJ told regulators its assets under management have
dwindled to about JPY24 billion, including JPY4 billion in cash
and deposits, one of the officials, as cited by Bloomberg, said.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific on
Feb. 27, 2012, Bloomberg News said the Financial Services Agency
on Feb. 24 ordered AIJ Investment Advisors Co. to halt its
business after finding the asset manager's clients funds of about
JPY183.2 billion (US$2.3 billion) may be "adversely affected" and
started a probe into the 263 asset managers operating in Japan.

Tokyo-based asset-management firm AIJ Investment Advisors Co.,
led by Kazuhiko Asakawa, was established in April 1989, and had
120 clients including pension plans with JPY183.2 billion in
assets as of the end of 2010.  It has 12 employees.

DREAM HOMES: Director Flees to Australia After Liquidation
----------------------------------------------------------
Fairfax NZ News reports that Dream Homes director Thomas
Buckthought has fled to Australia less than a week after placing
six companies into liquidation.

Dream Homes liquidator Kim Thompson has confirmed Mr. Buckthought
had crossed the ditch, the report relates.

Mr. Buckthought's two-storey home, located on a 2.3 hectare
section, is now on the market for NZ$500,000, the report
discloses.

Fairfax NZ discloses that Dream Homes was a Registered Master
Builder member for six months in 2010 but was kicked out of the
federation following a dispute.  After being dismissed from the
federation, Dream Homes continued using Master Builders branding
on its Web site and stationery.  During its time as a member,
Dream Homes filed no Master Build guarantees, the report relates.

According to Fairfax NZ, Detective Sergeant Greg Gray said police
had received no complaints about Mr. Buckthought and there was no
investigation under way.

However, the Commerce Commission said the case had been brought
to its attention and fair trading managers had started an
assessment process, says Fairfax NZ.

According to the report, Mr. Thompson said it was preferable if
Mr. Buckthought was in New Zealand but as long as he remained co-
operative, it shouldn't be an issue.  Directors of insolvent
companies regularly flee to Australia, he said.

Mr. Thompson, as cited by Fairfax NZ, said if it was found that
Mr. Buckthought had traded recklessly or fraudulently than it
would go beyond the realm of the liquidator and become a criminal
matter.

If that was the outcome then Mr. Buckthought could be extradited,
the report adds.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific on
March 6, 2012, Fairfax NZ News said Dream Homes has been put into
liquidation amid revelations the company traded under a fake
Registered Master Builders logo.  All six housing and property
companies owned by Mr. Buckthought were put into liquidation on
Feb. 28.  The first liquidation report for Dream Homes showed the
company owed more than NZ$1.5 million dollars to creditors,
Fairfax NZ disclosed.  Hamilton-based liquidator Kim Thompson
said the company had virtually no assets to pay creditors.

Volk Industries, trading as Dream Homes, is a Taranaki-based
building company.


OTAGO RUGBY: Wins More Time to Avoid Liquidation, Finds Rescue
--------------------------------------------------------------
Fairfax NZ News reports that Otago Rugby Football Union has
bought another week's time to thresh out the details of a rescue
package, after "fruitful" discussions last week.

The news agency relates that the Board of the Otago Rugby
Football Union (ORFU) said it had decided to delay until Friday,
March 16, the filing of an application to liquidate the union to
allow more time for discussions.

This follows a one week delay agreed by the Board earlier this
month, the report notes.

According to Fairfax NZ, the prospect of the ORFU digging its way
out of the NZ$2.35 million financial crisis it had found itself
in appeared improbable.  But, in what would be a remarkable
turnaround, the 131-year-old province may now field a team and
retain its place in this year's 14-team competition, the report
relays.

Fairfax NZ notes that the New Zealand Rugby Union (NZRU), Dunedin
City Council, Dunedin Venues Management Ltd, the New Zealand
Rugby Players Association and the Bank of New Zealand have spent
the past week working through the details of the recovery
package.

The report relates that NZRU Chief Executive Steve Tew said
discussions last week had been fruitful.

Based in Dunedin, the Otago Rugby Football Union --
http://www.orfu.co.nz/-- is the official governing body of rugby
union for the Otago Region of New Zealand.


OTAGO RUGBY: More Than NZ$300,000 Worth of Pokies Unaccounted
-------------------------------------------------------------
Rod Vaughan at The National Business Review reports that more
than NZ$300,000 of pokie grants to the Otago Rugby Football Union
is unaccounted for and several trusts said they have stopped
processing grant applications for the union amid concerns over
its financial viability and delays in receiving receipts for
previous grants.

Most affected is the Trusts Community Foundation which is
awaiting receipts, totaling NZ$286,000, it granted last year for
amateur rugby, NBR says.

It pulled the plug on further grants to the union in January
until receipts are produced for previous donations.

However, the foundation's general manager, Warwick Hodder, told
NBR Online he's not overly concerned at the situation.

"I'm confident a fair amount will be accounted for as a lot of it
went to wages for people in junior rugby and there've been no
reports of anyone not being paid," the report quotes Mr. Hodder
as saying.

According to NBR, Mr. Hodder said his only niggle was that the
trust had not been kept up to date with the union's position and
"it's fair to say we are disappointed that it has taken this long
to account for the grants."

NBR relates that the union's change manager, Jeremy Curragh, said
he's been in touch with the trusts and told them that the union
is "going through a complicated financial reconciliation process
where the amounts owing to creditors and the circumstances around
debts are being verified."

"It is not appropriate to discuss the details around each
creditor but we are currently in the middle of a process trying
to put together a package for all creditors," NBR quotes Mr.
Curragh as saying.

Based in Dunedin, the Otago Rugby Football Union --
http://www.orfu.co.nz/-- is the official governing body of rugby
union for the Otago Region of New Zealand.


PIKE RIVER: Solid Energy Buys Mine; 19 Staff Lose Job
-----------------------------------------------------
APNZ reports that receivers PricewaterhouseCoopers announced
Friday that Solid Energy had placed a successful bid for Pike
River Coal Ltd.

The sale was conditional on due diligence, with a final
settlement expected in May, the reports says.

According to the report, lead receiver John Fisk said the sale
was the best way forward toward recovering the bodies of 29 dead
men still inside the mine.

"As part of the agreement, negotiations will continue with the
Crown to establish a trust that will help oversee efforts to
enter the main area of the mine and facilitate body recovery - if
it is safe and technically feasible," the news agency quotes Mr.
Fisk as saying.

APNZ relates that Mr. Fisk said tunnel reclamation work at Pike
River mine would continue while the sale was being processed.

He would not give any more details until the sale went
unconditional, the report adds.

Meanwhile, Fairfax NZ News reports that nearly half of the staff
involved in the recovery of the bodies of the 29 men killed in
the Pike River mine disaster have been laid off.

Fairfax NZ says nine staff, including Marty Palmer, whose son,
Brendan Palmer, 27, was killed in the November 2010 blast, have
been given a month's notice by the mine's receivers.

A spokesman for some of the Pike River families, Bernie Monk,
said experts were probably going to be brought in from Australia,
so there was not much more the staff based on the West Coast
could do, according to Fairfax NZ.

Fairfax says Mr. Palmer suspected more of the remaining 11 staff,
including another victim's parent, would be laid off as the
receivers did not have much money.

The continued cost of the recovery was believed to have been a
factor in the redundancies, but the mine's receivers could not be
reached for comment, Fairfax NZ reports.
