ABC LEARNING: Founder Ordered to Pay AUD5MM to Commonwealth Bank
----------------------------------------------------------------
ABC News reports that the founder of ABC Learning Centres, Eddy
Groves, has been ordered to repay more than AUD5 million to the
Commonwealth Bank.

ABC News relates that the bank sued Mr. Groves over an unpaid
debt and the civil case was tried in the South Australian Supreme
Court earlier this year.

According to the report, the bank had wanted to take ownership of
The Dome stadium in Adelaide as part of its claim.  Lawyers for
the bank argued Mr. Groves put up The Dome as security for a line
of credit in return for an extension of time to pay his debt.

ABC News says Justice Malcolm Blue has ruled in favor of the
bank, and ordered Mr. Groves repay the amount claimed.

An interim suppression order was placed on the reasons for the
judgment, the report notes.  It will be reviewed during a hearing
next week, when the court will also finalize interest and cost
orders, ABC News adds.

                       About ABC Learning

Based in Australia, ABC Learning Centres Limited provided
childcare services and education in more than 1,200 centers in
Australia, New Zealand, the United States and the United Kingdom.

In November 2008, ABC Learning Centres Limited appointed
Peter Walker and Greg Moloney of Ferrier Hodgson as voluntary
administrators of the company and a number of its subsidiaries.
Subsequent to the appointment of administrators, the company's
banking syndicate appointed Chris Honey, Murray Smith and John
Cronin of McGrathNicol as receivers.

The Administrators filed a Chapter 15 petition for the Company
(Bankr. D. Del. Case No. 10-11711) on May 26, 2010.  Joel A.
Waite, Esq., at Young, Conaway, Stargatt & Taylor, represents the
Petitioners in the Chapter 15 case.  ABC's debts and assets were
estimated to be between US$100 million and US$500 million.

A separate Chapter 15 petition was filed for affiliate A.B.C.
USA Holdings Pty Ltd., listing assets and debts of at least
US$100 million.

In June 2010, ABC Learning creditors in Australia voted to wind
up the failed childcare provider.


HASTIE GROUP: UAE Workers Yet to Receive Entitlements
-----------------------------------------------------
Peter Ryan at ABC News reports that few weeks after the collapse
of the Hastie Group, 1,000 staff based in the United Arab
Emirates (UAE) have been left in the lurch, with their former
managers forced to support them out of their own pockets.

In Australia, ABC News relates, about 80% of the 2,700 workers
made redundant are now back working for other contractors, having
received their full termination entitlements.

But the 1,000 mainly Indian and Bangladeshi laborers are yet to
see a cent of their entitlements, known locally as gratuities,
after Hastie's bank account was drained of AUD3 million just days
before administrators were appointed, according to ABC News.

And a small group of Hastie managers, who have been using their
own money to help abandoned employees, claim they have been left
high and dry by the administrators, the report relates.

According to ABC News, Hastie's general manager in Abu Dhabi,
Darren Hunt, is one of four bosses left in the country, and like
his workers, he feels abandoned.

ABC News relates Mr. Hunter said managers have been left in the
lurch and are standing by foreign laborers at their own personal
expense to meet food and housing costs.

"I think that what has happened is criminal . . .  The three
senior managers have absconded the country, left 940 employees in
the Middle East," the report quotes Mr. Hunter as saying.  "There
is a humanitarian issue where we have got to accommodate people,
we've got to provide food."

                          About Hastie Group

Hastie Group provides technical and engineering services to the
building, infrastructure and resources sectors. It has operations
in Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, Ireland and the
Middle East and has approximately 7,000 employees worldwide
including approximately 4,000 in Australia.

The Hastie Group of companies appointed David McEvoy, Craig
Crosbie and Ian Carson of PPB Advisory as Voluntary
Administrators of all of the Australian entities of Hastie Group
on May 28, 2012.

Peter Anderson, Joseph Hayes, Jason Preston, and Matthew Caddy of
McGrathNicol were also appointed Receivers and Managers over a
limited number of trading businesses within the Hastie Group by a
syndicate of secured creditors on May 28, 2012. Those businesses
are Spectrum Fire and Safety, Hastie Services, Gordon Brothers
Industries and Austral Refrigeration.

McGrathNicol said the control of those businesses now rests with
the Receivers who intend to continue to trade each one on a
"business as usual" basis while moving quickly to prepare them
for public sale to secure their future.  A sale process for the
Austral business was commenced prior to the appointment and the
Receivers intend to quickly complete that process.


IPM AUSTRALIA: S&P Keeps 'BB+' Corp. Credit Rating; on Watch Pos
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services revised its CreditWatch to
positive, from negative implications, on the 'BB+' corporate
credit rating on IPM Australia Ltd. the trading arm of the Loy
Yang B project. The revision in the CreditWatch follows the
successful refinancing of the project's AUD1.1 billion of debt.
"In addition, we have withdrawn the 'BB+' rating on LoyVic Pty
Ltd.'s senior secured debt, as it has been repaid following the
refinancing. On April 20, 2012, we had placed the ratings on
CreditWatch negative due to our view of the company's refinancing
uncertainty," S&P said.

"The CreditWatch positive reflects our view that the stand-alone
credit profile of IPM could benefit from parental support,"
Standard & Poor's credit analyst Richard Creed said. "We note the
recent parental support for the wider group's Hazelwood plant."

"To resolve the CreditWatch, we will need to review the terms and
conditions of the new debt package, and IPM's relationship with
the rest of the Australian business to ascertain the likelihood
and quantum of parental support. We consider that the group has
managed the assets as a portfolio notwithstanding the separate
financing for each project," S&P said.

"LoyVic and IPM are respectively the financing and trading arms
of the Loy Yang B joint venture (LYB) that owns and operates the
1,000 megawatt brown coal-fired power plant in the Australian
State of Victoria. LYB's owners comprise Mitsui & Co. Ltd.
(A+/Stable/A-1; 30% share) and International Power PLC, with a
70% share (IPR; A/Stable/--). IPR is in turn 70% owned by GDF
SUEZ S.A. (A/Stable/A-1)," S&P said.


LIBERTY SERIES 2012-1: S&P Rates $3.6-Mil. Cl. E Securities 'BB'
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its preliminary
ratings to eight of the nine classes of nonconforming residential
mortgage-backed securities (RMBS) issued by Liberty Funding Pty.
Ltd. in respect of the Liberty Series 2012-1 Trust. Liberty
Series 2012-1 is a securitization of nonconforming residential
mortgages originated by Liberty Financial Pty Ltd.

The preliminary ratings reflect:

- S&P's view of the credit risk of the underlying collateral
   portfolio, including the fact that this is a closed
   portfolio, which means no further loans will be assigned to
   the trust after the closing date;

- S&P's view that the credit support is sufficient to withstand
   the stresses the ratings agency apply. This credit support
   comprises note subordination for each class of rated note;

- S&P's expectation that the various mechanisms to support
   liquidity within the transaction, including a reserve
   account, principal draws, and a liquidity facility equal to
   2.5% of the invested amount of all rated notes and the stated
   amount of the class F notes, are sufficient under S&P's stress
   assumptions to support timely payment of interest;

- The benefit of a fixed-to-floating interest-rate swap
   provided by National Australia Bank Ltd. (NAB; AA-/Stable/
   A-1+) to hedge the mismatch between receipts from any fixed-
   Rate mortgage loans and the variable-rate RMBS; and

- The provision of a reserve account established and maintained
   through the trapping of excess spread on each payment date up
   to a maximum limit of A$4,500,000. The reserve account may be
   utilized to meet current loan losses, and as a third source
   of liquidity for the payment of unpaid interest.

"The issuer has not informed Standard & Poor's (Australia) Pty
Limited whether the issuer is publically disclosing all relevant
information about the structured finance instruments the subject
of this rating report or whether relevant information remains
non-public," S&P said.

              STANDARD & POOR'S 17G-7 DISCLOSURE REPORT

SEC Rule 17g-7 requires an NRSRO, for any report accompanying a

LDK SOLAR: Incurs $177 Million Net Loss in First Quarter
--------------------------------------------------------
LDK Solar Co., Ltd., reported a net loss of US$177.15 million on
US$200.10 million of net sales for the three months ended
March 31, 2012, compared with a net loss of US$564.55 million on
US$420.16 million of net sales for the quarter ended Dec. 31,
2011.

The Company's balance sheet at March 31, 2012, showed US$6.63
billion in total assets, US$5.96 billion in total liabilities,
US$228.21 million in redeemable non-controlling interests and
US$447.32 million in total equity.

"Our revenue was within the expected range as our results
reflected first quarter seasonality and the continued difficult
solar industry conditions," stated Xiaofeng Peng, Chairman and
CEO of LDK Solar.  "Industry-wide overcapacity continued and
drove price declines across the entire solar supply chain, which
significantly reduced our revenue and negatively impacted our
margins."

A copy of the press release is available for free at:

                        http://is.gd/qEXd75

                          About LDK Solar

LDK Solar Co., Ltd. -- http://www.ldksolar.com-- based in Hi-
Tech Industrial Park, Xinyu City, Jiangxi Province, People's
Republic of China, is a vertically integrated manufacturer of
photovoltaic products, including high-quality and low-cost
polysilicon, solar wafers, cells, modules, systems, power
projects and solutions.

LDK Solar was incorporated in the Cayman Islands on May 1, 2006,
by LDK New Energy, a British Virgin Islands company wholly owned
by Xiaofeng Peng, LDK's founder, chairman and chief executive
officer, to acquire all of the equity interests in Jiangxi LDK
Solar from Suzhou Liouxin Industry Co., Ltd., and Liouxin
Industrial Limited.

KPMG in Hong Kong, China, said in a May 15, 2012, audit report
there is substantial doubt on the ability of LDK Solar Co., Ltd.
to continue as a going concern.  According to KPMG, the Group has
a net working capital deficit and is restricted to incur
additional debt as it has not met a financial covenant ratio
under a long-term debt agreement as of Dec. 31, 2011.  These
conditions raise substantial doubt about the Group's ability to
continue as a going concern.


MIE HOLDINGS: Fitch Says Proposed Investment Won't Affect Ratings
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings says that MIE Holdings Corporation's (MIE,
'B'/Stable) proposed USD100 million investment for a 51% stake in
Sino Gas & Energy Limited will not have an immediate impact on
its ratings.  This is because MIE's current 'B' rating has built
in adequate headroom for investments of this size.

Under the terms of the proposed acquisition, MIE will
progressively inject USD90m in SGE and pay USD10m to Sino Gas &
Energy Holdings Limited for 51% of SGE.  Following the proposed
acquisition, MIE will have majority representation on the board
of SGE, which has natural gas assets (prospective resources of
1.799 trillion cubic feet) in the resource-rich Ordos Basin in
the Shanxi Province of People's Republic of China.

The gas resources acquired are still in the exploration stage and
the current development plan indicates that the USD90m from MIE
will be sufficient to fund initial exploration costs.  The gas
fields acquired are located in or close to gas pipeline hubs with
existing major natural gas trunk lines.

The proposed transaction will be funded by MIE's existing cash-
on-hand.  As a result, MIE's credit metrics will be weakened;
Fitch expects its leverage, as measured by funds from operations
(FFO) adjusted net leverage, will be around 2x in 2012 and 2013
(end-2011: 1.2x).  Under the current rating, MIE can tolerate a
rise in is funds from operations (FFO)-adjusted net leverage
above 3x and a decline in FFO gross interest coverage below 4.5x,
on a sustained basis, before Fitch considers a negative rating
action.

The 'B' rating on MIE's USD400m 9.75% due 2016 senior notes is
not affected by the SGE investment.  However, if material senior
ranking debt were to be raised by subsidiaries in the future, the
senior unsecured rating and Recovery Rating may be negatively
affected.

MIE's ratings reflect the upstream nature of its operations and
the consequential exposure to potential oil price volatility.
The ratings also reflect that its size is in line with other oil
and gas companies in the 'B' category.

AIR INDIA: Pilots' Strike the Longest Pilot Stir in 40 Years
------------------------------------------------------------
The Times of India reports that the hunger protest by the pilots
of Air India entered its sixth day on Friday.

According to the report, the pilots have been on strike for more
than 50 days now, making it the longest running pilots' strike in
the last 40 years.  The report relates that the pilots went on
strike on May 8, 2012, to protest against the airline's decision
to train the erstwhile Indian Airlines (IC) pilots for the soon-
to-be inducted Dreamliner aircraft.  The union of the AI pilots,
Indian Pilots' Guild (IPG) was derecognized by the airline when
they went on strike, the report notes.

The report adds that the members of the derecognized unions
released Wednesday a press note saying that the strike is the
longest strike in the last 40 years.

                        About Air India

Air India Ltd -- http://www.airindia.com/-- transports
passengers throughout India and to more than 40 destinations
throughout the world.  Affiliate Air India Express operates as a
low-fare carrier, mainly between India and destinations in the
Middle East, and Air India Cargo provides freight transportation.
The government of India has merged Air India with another state-
controlled carrier, Indian Airlines, which has focused on
domestic routes.  The combined airline, part of a new holding
company called National Aviation Company of India, uses the Air
India brand.  The new Air India and its affiliates have a fleet
of more than 110 aircraft altogether.

                          *     *     *

The Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific, citing the Hindustan
Times, reported on June 19, 2009, that Air India has been
bleeding cash due to excess capacity, lower yield, a drop in
passenger numbers, an increase in fuel prices and the effects of
the global slowdown.  Air India had debt of INR42,570 crore and
accumulated losses of INR22,000 crore as of March 31, 2011,
according to livemint.com.

In April 2012, the Union Cabinet approved an operational
turnaround plan through an equity infusion of INR30,000 crore
(US$5.8 billion) over the next eight years.

"The Cabinet Committee on Economic Affairs (CCEA) has approved
the turnaround plan (TAP) and financial restructuring plan (FRP)
of Air India, under which the government will infuse INR30,000
crore into the airline by 2020-21, subject to certain milestones
that AI will have to meet," civil aviation minister Ajit Singh
said.


APEX HEALTHCARE: CRISIL Assigns 'B+' Rating to INR53.9MM Loans
--------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its 'CRISIL B+/Stable' rating to the long-
term bank facilities of Apex Healthcare Ltd.

                         Amount
   Facilities           (INR Mln)     Ratings
   ----------           ---------     -------
   Term Loan               3.9        CRISIL B+/Stable (Assigned)
   Cash Credit            50.0        CRISIL B+/Stable (Assigned)

The rating reflects AHL's below-average financial risk profile
marked by low networth, high gearing, and working-capital-
intensive and small-scale operations. These rating weaknesses are
partially offset by the extensive experience of the company's
promoters in the pharmaceutical industry and expected improvement
in scale of operations.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that AHL will continue to benefit from its
promoters' extensive industry experience over the medium term.
The outlook may be revised to 'Positive' if AHL reports higher-
than-expected growth in revenues and earnings, while improving
its capital structure and liquidity. Conversely, the outlook may
be revised to 'Negative' if the company's financial risk profile
weakens, caused most likely by substantially lower-than-expected
profitability or revenues, or larger-than-expected, debt-funded,
capital expenditure programme, or a stretch in its working
capital cycle.

                       About Apex Healthcare

Apex Healthcare Ltd. was established as a partnership (Apex
Laboratories) firm in 2003 by Mr. Umesh Mendapara and his
cousins, Mr. Ramesh Gabani and Dr. Chandu Gabani. In January
2007, it was reconstituted as public limited company (closely
held) and its name was changed to the current one. The company
manufactures bulk drugs. Its manufacturing unit at Ankleshwar
(Gujarat) has capacity of 75 tonnes per annum - the unit's
current capacity utilisation is about 70 per cent.

AHL, on a provisional basis, reported profit after tax (PAT) of
INR2.2 million on net sales of INR104.6 million for 2011-12
(refers to financial year, April 1 to March 31), as against a PAT
of INR0.9 million on net sales of INR63.44 million for 2010-11.

   Long-Term Loan          40         CRISIL B+/Stable (Assigned)

The rating reflects BS' modest scale of operations in fragmented
cotton textile industry, and exposure to risks related to
volatility in prices, and its working capital intensive
operations. These rating weaknesses are partially offset by the
benefits that BS derives from the extensive experience of its
promoters in the textile industry and its moderate financial
profile marked by a low gearing and adequate debt protection
metrics.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that BS will continue to benefit from the
extensive industry experience of its promoters. The outlook may
be revised to 'Positive' if the firm improves its scale of
operations and operating profitability on a sustained basis.
Conversely, the outlook may be revised to 'Negative' if there is
considerable decline in yarn realizations translating to lower
accruals or if its working capital management deteriorates,
resulting in stretched liquidity, or if BS undertakes a large
debt-funded capital expenditure programme, resulting in weakening
in its financial risk profile.

Established in 1995 as a partnership entity, Bhagavathi Spinners
is involved in the manufacture of cotton yarn. BS manufactures
cotton yarn primarily in 60s counts and also 30's count carded
warp yarn; its facility at Coimbatore (Tamil Nadu)has an
installed capacity of 12,000 spindles The firm is promoted by
Mr.Rakkiya Gounder and it is presently being managed by his sons,
Mr.Subramanian and Mr.Natarajan.

BS reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR 7 million on net
sales of INR 85.6 million for 2010-11 (refers to financial year,
April 1 to March 31), as against a PAT of INR 5.9 million on net
sales of INR 55.7 million for 2009-10.


BHOOMI FASHION: CRISIL Raises Rating on INR108.3MM Loans to 'B+'
----------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has upgraded its rating on the long-term bank facilities
of Bhoomi Fashion Pvt Ltd to 'CRISIL B+/Stable' from 'CRISIL
B/Stable'.

                         Amount
   Facilities           (INR Mln)     Ratings
   ----------           ---------     -------
   Cash Credit              20        CRISIL B+/Stable (Upgraded
                                      from CRISIL B/Stable)

   Term Loan                88.3      CRISIL B+/Stable (Upgraded
                                      from CRISIL B/Stable)

The upgrade reflects expected continued improvement in BFPL's
capital structure and liquidity over the medium term. The
company's gearing improved to about 1.9 times in as on March 31,
2012 from about 3 times a year ago, driven mainly by equity
capital infusion of INR18.5 million and improvement in working
capital management. Also, the company's performance has remained
steady, marked by year-on-year revenue growth of 26 per cent and
stable operating profitability of about 18 per cent in 2011-12
(refers to financial year, April 1 to March 31).

The rating reflects BFPL's restricted flexibility in a
competitive industry, with modest scale of operations and weak
financial risk profile marked by small net worth and high
gearing. These rating weaknesses are partially offset by the
company's promoters' extensive experience in the textile
industry.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that BFPL will continue to benefit from its
established position in the textile industry and improved working
capital management. The outlook may be revised to 'Positive' if
BFPL's cash accruals are larger than expected, or if its capital
structure improves, driven most likely by sizeable equity capital
infusion. Conversely, the outlook may be revised to 'Negative' if
the company's financial risk profile weakens, caused most likely
by a stretch in working capital cycle or larger-than-expected,
debt-funded capital expenditure.

                       About Bhoomi Fashion

Incorporated in 1996, BFPL was acquired by its current owners,
Mr. Lalit Agarwal and Mr. Ramesh Agarwal, in 2008. A Surat
(Gujarat)-based company, BFPL is a processing house that
undertakes dyeing and printing of cotton and synthetic fabrics.
The fabric supplied by the client is cleaned and dyed as per
customer specifications. The company has processing capacity of
around 150,000 meters of fabric per day, with capacity
utilisation of 100 per cent.

BFPL profit after tax (PAT) and net sales are estimated at INR2.4
million and INR197 million for 2011-12; the company reported a
PAT of INR1 million on net sales of INR158 million for 2010-11.


BIJASANI GINNING: CRISIL Assigns 'B' Rating to INR60MM Loans

CRISIL has assigned its 'CRISIL B/Stable' rating to the bank
facilities of Bijasani Ginning & Pressing Factory.

   Standby Line of         7.5        CRISIL B/Stable (Assigned)
   Credit

The ratings reflect BGPF's weak financial risk profile marked by
high gearing and weak debt protection metrics, small scale of
operations, exposure to intense completion in the cotton ginning
industry, and vulnerability to adverse regulatory changes. These
rating weaknesses are partially offset by BGPF's partners'
extensive experience in the cotton ginning industry, leading to
its established customer relationships.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that BGPF will continue to benefit over the
medium term from its promoter-partners' extensive industry
experience. The outlook may be revised to 'Positive' if the
firm's scale of operations increases substantially, along with a
improvement in its profitability, or if its capital structure
improves, driven most likely by equity infusion or larger-than-
expected cash accruals. Conversely, the outlook may be revised to
'Negative', if the firm's financial risk profile weakens, caused
most likely by increase in working capital borrowings, larger-
than-expected debt-funded capex, or a disruption in its
operations because of adverse regulatory change.

                      About Bijasani Ginning

Formed in 2007, BGPF is a partnership firm of Mr. Sajay Choudhri
and Mr. Umesh Choudhri. The firm has a cotton ginning and
pressing unit at Dharangaon, Jalgaon (Maharashtra). The unit has
capacity of 150 bales per day. BGPF sells cotton oil seeds to its
group entity, GSR Oil Industries, for further processing.

BGPF reported a net profit of INR1.4 million on net sales of
INR333 million for 2010-11 (refers to financial year, April 1 to
March 31), against a net profit of INR0.6 million on net sales of
INR201 million for 2009-10. For 2011-12, BGPF's net sales are
estimated at INR343 million.


CLASSIC MICROTECH: CRISIL Raises Rating on INR49.9MM Loans
----------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has upgraded its rating on the long-term bank facilities
of Classic Microtech Pvt Ltd to 'CRISIL B/Stable' from 'CRISIL B-
/Stable' and has reaffirmed its rating on CMPL's short-term
facilities at 'CRISIL A4'.

                         Amount
   Facilities           (INR Mln)     Ratings
   ----------           ---------     -------
   Cash Credit              40        CRISIL B/Stable (Upgraded

   Term Loan                 9.9      CRISIL B/Stable (Upgraded
                                      from 'CRISIL B-/Stable')

   Letter of Credit         50        CRISIL A4 (Reaffirmed)

The upgrade reflects improvement in CMPL's business risk profile,
driven by substantial and sustained growth in its scale of
operations, while the company maintained its profitability.
CMPL's revenues, which increased by 72 per cent year-on-year to
around INR390 million in 2011-12 (refers to financial year, April
1 to March 31), is expected to further increase by about 50 per
cent in 2012-13. The growth in the company's revenues is mainly
driven by addition of new customers and enhancement of business
share from the older customers. CMPL's operating profit margin
remained stable at around 5.2 per cent in 2011-12 and is expected
to improve marginally over the medium. The improvement in margin
will be driven by economies of scale - its capacity is expected
to increase to 6600 tonnes per annum (tpa) from 4200 tpa with
completion of its ongoing capacity expansion project by August
2012. The upgrade also reflects improvement in CMPL's financial
risk profile, marked by improvement in gearing to an estimated
2.0 times as on March 31, 2012 from 2.8 times as on March 31,
2011, driven by equity infusion of INR16.1 million during 2011-
12; gearing is expected to continue to be less than 2 times over
the medium term, supported by increasing cash accruals.

The ratings reflect CMPL's average financial risk profile, marked
by moderate gearing and average debt protection metrics, large
working capital requirements, and small scale of operations.
These rating weaknesses are partially offset by the extensive
experience of CMPL's promoters in the tiles industry in Gujarat.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that CMPL will maintain its established market
position in the zirconium industry over the medium term,
supported by its promoters' extensive industry experience and
established relationships with customers. The outlook may be
revised to 'Positive' if there is substantial and sustained
improvement in CMPL's profitability, while it maintains its
healthy revenue growth, or there is an improvement in its working
capital management, over the medium term. Conversely, the outlook
may be revised to 'Negative' if there is a steep decline in the
company's profitability or significant deterioration in its
capital structure because of larger-than-expected working capital
requirements.

                      About Classic Microtech

Incorporated in 2007, CMPL manufactures zirconium silicate and
zirconium flour, which are used in the ceramic and vitrified
tiles industry for whitening and glazing tiles. CMPL's current
capacity of 4200 tpa is being fully utilized; the company is
enhancing its capacity to 6600 tpa, which is expected to be
operational by August 2012. The capacity enhancement cost is
INR10.00 million, funded by debt of INR5.25 million. The
promoters are also in the business of manufacturing vitrified and
wall tiles under the group company, Regent Granito India Ltd, and
ceramic glaze tiles under the group company, Ricasil Ceramic
Industries Pvt Ltd.

CMPL's profit after tax (PAT) and net sales are estimated at
INR3.7 million and INR387.9 million respectively for 2011-12
(refers to financial year, April 1 to March 31); it reported a
PAT of INR2.8 million on net sales of INR226.0 million for 2010-
11.


DISHA INDUSTRIES: CRISIL Assigns 'B-' Rating to INR448MM Loans

CRISIL has assigned its 'CRISIL B-/Stable' rating to the long-
term bank facilities of Disha Industries Ltd.

                         Amount

   ----------           ---------    -------
   Cash Credit            105        CRISIL B-/Stable (Assigned)
   Term Loan              343        CRISIL B-/Stable (Assigned)

The rating reflects DIL's exposure to risks related to the
implementation of its kraft paper facility project, and weak
financial risk profile marked a high gearing and low net cash
accruals. These rating weaknesses are, however, partially offset
by the extensive experience of DIL's promoters in the paper
industry.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that DIL will benefit over medium term from its
promoters' extensive experience in the paper industry, and will
remain dependent on infusion of funds by its promoters to support
the payment of its interest obligations. The outlook may be
revised to 'Positive' in case the company stabilizes its
operations earlier than expected, registers better-than-expected
revenue growth, or records higher-than-expected profitability.
Conversely, the outlook may be revised to 'Negative' if DIL
reports less-than-expected revenues and profitability, or if it
undertakes a large, debt-funded capital expenditure programme.

                      About Disha Industries

DIL was set up by Mr. Ajay Paliwal and Mr. Suraj Prakash in 1995;
however, the company has remained non-operational till date. It
is setting up a 39,600-tonne-per-annum kraft paper plant in
Mujjaffarnagar (Uttar Pradesh). The total cost of the project is
expected to be INR588 million, which is to be funded through a
term loan of INR343 million and promoter's contribution for the
rest. The plant is expected to commence commercial production in
September 2012. The bursting factor is expected to remain in the
range of 20 to 26.

The ratings reflect DKECPL's large working capital requirements
and small scale of operations in the competitive and fragmented
civil construction industry. These rating weaknesses are
partially offset by the experience of the promoters in the civil
construction industry.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that DKECPL will maintain its business risk
profile, backed by the experience of its promoters in the civil
construction industry. The outlook may be revised to 'Positive'
if DKECPL strengthens its business risk profile by improving its
scale of operations and, improves its liquidity, driven by
better-than-expected cash accruals or improvement in working
capital management. Conversely, less-than-expected accruals,
stretch in working capital cycle, any large, debt-funded capital
expenditure (capex), leading to deterioration in the company's
liquidity, may lead to a revision in the outlook to 'Negative'.

                      About D.K. Engineering

Incorporated in 2000, DKECPL is promoted by Mr. Deokant Jha and
Mr. Vinay Kumar Jha. Prior to its reconstitution as a private
limited company in 2000, it operated as a proprietorship concern
under the name D K Engineering & Construction. The company is
engaged in civil construction work for government organisation
such as Public Works Department (PWD) and Prime Minister Gramin
Sadak Yogna (PMGSY), primarily in Bihar and Arunachal Pradesh. It
mainly undertakes projects related to construction of roads and
bridges.


DURGA AUTOMOTIVES: Delay in Loan Payment Cues CRISIL Junk Ratings

   Cash Credit            40.00       CRISIL D (Assigned)
   Inventory Funding     100.00       CRISIL D (Assigned)
   Facility

The rating reflects the instances of delay by DAPL in servicing
its debt; the delays have been caused by the company's weak
liquidity.

DAPL also has a weak financial risk profile marked by a high
gearing and a small net worth. The company, however, benefits
from its promoters' extensive industry experience.

DAPL was set up in 1998; in the same year, the company started
its authorised service centre for passenger cars of Mahindra &
Mahindra Ltd in Siliguri (West Bengal). In 1999, DAPL started its
authorised dealership and service centre for Hyundai Motor India
Ltd in Siliguri. In 2002, DAPL started an authorised dealership
of three wheelers for Piaggio Vehicles Pvt Ltd in Siliguri. DAPL
has three showrooms of HMIL in Siliguri, Malda, and Cooch Behar,
and three branches in Jaigaon, Darjeeling, and Siliguri (all in
West Bengal). Moreover, the company has one showroom for Piaggio
in Cooch Behar. Around 92 per cent of DAPL's total revenues are
generated through sales of passenger cars (90 per cent from HMIL
and the rest from Piaggio).


JAI MAAKALI: CRISIL Assigns 'CRISIL B+' Rating to INR160MM Loans

                         Amount

   Cash Credit            150         CRISIL B+/Stable (Assigned)
   Proposed Long-Term      10         CRISIL B+/Stable (Assigned)
   Bank Loan Facility

The rating reflects JMFFPL's weak financial risk profile, marked
by a small size of net worth and weak debt protection metrics,
small scale of operations in a fragmented and competitive
industry, working-capital-intensive operations, and
susceptibility to volatility in raw material prices. These rating
weaknesses are partially offset by the benefits that JMFFPL
derives from its promoters' extensive experience in the fish
cultivation and poultry businesses.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that JMFFPL will continue to benefit over the
medium term from its promoters' extensive industry experience.
The outlook may be revised to 'Positive' in case the company
significantly improves its financial risk profile, most likely
because of capital infusion by its promoters and better-than-
expected revenues and profitability, along with improvement in
its working capital management. Conversely, the outlook may be
revised to 'Negative' in case the company reports a decline in
its profitability or revenues or there is a stretch in its
working capital cycle, resulting in lower-than-expected cash
accruals, or if it undertakes any larger-than-expected, debt-
funded capital expenditure programme, leading to deterioration of
its financial risk profile.

                         About Jai Maakali

Jai Maakali Fish Farms Pvt Ltd, incorporated in 2003, is based in
Tanuku (Andhra Pradesh). The company is engaged in cultivation of
fish such as Rohu and Katla across 2750 acres at Potluru and
Dosapadu villages in West Godavari District (Andhra Pradesh).
JMFFPL is promoted by Mr. Kumar Pappu Singh, who has more than
two decades of experience in the poultry business.

JMFFPL, on a provisional basis, reported a profit after tax (PAT)
of INR6.6 million on a net sales of INR160.1 million for 2011-12
(refers to financial year 2011-12) against a PAT of INR2.5
million on a net sales of INR104.7 million for 2010-11.


J.J. GLASTRONICS: CRISIL Places 'D' Rating on INR160MM Loans
------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has assigned its 'CRISIL D/CRISIL D' ratings to the bank

   Foreign Bill Purchase    46.6       CRISIL D (Assigned)
   Packing Credit           40         CRISIL D (Assigned)

The ratings reflect instances of delay by JJGPL in servicing its
term debt; the delays have been caused by the company's weak
liquidity as it has made losses in the last three years resulting
in low cash accruals.

JJGPL also has a weak financial risk profile marked by a high
gearing, and a constrained financial flexibility because of large
working capital requirements. The company, however, benefits from
its promoters' exensive industry experience and its established
customer base.

                      About J.J. Glastronics

JJGPL was set up in 1996 by members of the Jhunjhunwala family;
it is actively managed by its managing director, Mr. Anuj
Jhunjhunwala. The company manufactures electronic and machined
components used in televisions, monitors, refrigerators, air
conditioners, and automobiles. It has two manufacturing
facilities at Electronic City in Bengaluru (Karnataka). JJGPL
derives around 80 per cent of its revenues from export. The
company's products include glass rods used in colour picture
tubes, glass to metal seals used in refrigerators and air
conditioners, and machined components used in the automobile
industry.

For 2010-11 (refers to financial year, April 1 to March 31),
JJGPL reported a loss of INR29.5 million on net sales of INR290.8
million, against a loss of INR44.8 million on net sales of
INR322.4 million for 2009-10.


KULAR CONSTRUCTION: CRISIL Lifts Rating on INR110MM Loans to 'B+'
-----------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has upgraded its rating on the long-term bank facilities
of Kular Construction Ltd to 'CRISIL B+/Stable' from 'CRISIL D'.

                         Amount

   Proposed Long-Term     22.5        CRISIL B+/Stable (Upgraded
   Bank Loan Facility                 from 'CRISIL D')

The rating upgrade reflects KCL's track record of timely debt
servicing over the past 12 months, driven by improvement in its
liquidity. The company has prepaid its term loan instalments for
the next 18 months. The company's liquidity has improved on
account of increase in its accruals driven by sale of its
commercial complex over the past two years; the proceeds of the
sale were utilised for the term loan repayment. Moreover, KCL's
promoters infused equity of INR50 million into the company in
2011-12 (refers to financial year, April 1 to March 31), which
has further supported its liquidity. The rating upgrade also
factors in the significant improvement in KCL's financial risk
profile, driven by equity infusion and conversion of unsecured
loans into equity. The company's net worth as on March 31, 2012,
is estimated at INR179 million, up from INR18 million as on March
31, 2010. The company's gearing is estimated to have declined to
0.6 time as on March 31, 2012, from 11.2 times as on March 31,
2010. The gearing is expected to decline to around 0.5 time over
the medium term, with repayment of term loan instalment leading
to decline in debt and driven by continuous accretions to
reserves.

The ratings continue to reflect KCL's small scale of operations,
low net worth, and exposure to risks related to cyclicality in
the hospitality segment. These rating weaknesses are partially
offset by KCL's improved financial risk profile marked by a low
gearing and healthy debt protection metrics.

Outlook: Stable

CRISIL believes that KCL's financial risk profile will improve
over the medium term, driven by continuous decline in debt.
However, the company's scale of operations is expected to remain
small because of low occupancy level at its hotel. The outlook
may be revised to 'Positive' if KCL reports higher-than-expected
occupancy level, leading to higher-than-expected revenues and
profitability, resulting in improvement in the company's
liquidity. However, the outlook may be revised to 'Negative' if
KCL's revenues and profitability decline, driven by lower-than-
expected occupancy leading to deterioration in its liquidity.

                        About the Group

Incorporated in 1984, KCL was promoted by Mr. Bhajan Singh. It
was engaged in civil construction until 2004, when it received a
franchisee from the ITC group of hotels to construct Fortune
Klassik Hotel in Ludhiana (Punjab). By this time, Mr. Bhajan
Singh's sons had joined the business. The hotel was opened in
July 2006 with all 75 rooms in operations. It also has
restaurants and banquet halls which are also operational.
However, the sixth and the ninth floors are yet to be
constructed; the company plans to set up club rooms, spa and
saloon on these floors. The company has sold 90 per cent of the
commercial space and is likely to sell the balance in 2012-13.
The total cost of the project was around INR400 million, funded
through term loans of INR240 million and through promoters'
contribution.

KCL reported a profit after tax of INR29 million on net sales of
INR228.4 million for 2010-11, against a net loss of INR2.1
million on net sales of INR98.4 billion for 2009-10.


SUNSTAR MERCANTILE: CRISIL Cuts Rating on INR98.6MM Loans to 'D'
----------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has downgraded its rating on the bank facilities of
Sunstar Mercantile Company Ltd to 'CRISIL D/CRISIL D' from
'CRISIL B/Stable/CRISIL A4'.

                        Amount
   Facilities          (INR Mln)     Ratings

   Bank Loan Facility                'CRISIL B/Stable')

   Rupee Term Loan        88.4       CRISIL D

The downgrade reflects the instances of delays by SMCL in meeting
its current interest payments on its term loan; the delays have
been caused by the company's weak liquidity. SMCL has been
continuously delaying its interest payments over the past three
months. The weak liquidity is reflected in the company's
frequently overdrawn cash credit lines, and instances of
devolvement of its letter of credit facility in the recent past.
SMCL has weak liquidity, mainly because of stretch in receivables
from its customers against immediate payment made to the
suppliers, resulting in cash-flow mismatches.

SMCL also has a limited industry track record, modest scale of
operations, and weak financial risk profile marked by a small net
worth and a high gearing. The company, however, benefits from its
promoter's extensive industry experience.

                     About Sunstar Mercantile

SMCL was set up in 1999 by Mr. Kailesh Maheshwari; it commenced
operations in 2010. The company texturises partially oriented
yarn (POY). It sources polyethylene terephthalate chips, the key
raw material for POY, from Sanghi Industries Ltd and Indorama
Synthetics (India) Ltd, and outsources the same for processing
into POY on a job-work basis. The POY is then texturised by SMCL
and sold in the market. SMCL has eight texturising machines, with
total capacity of producing 550 tonnes per month.


SURAJ PRECISION: CRISIL Cuts Rating on INR131.6MM Loan to 'D'
-------------------------------------------------------------
CRISIL has downgraded its rating on the long-term bank facilities
of Suraj Precision Engineering Works Pvt Ltd to 'CRISIL D' from
'CRISIL BB/Stable'. The rating downgrade reflects instances of
delay by SPEWPL in servicing its term loan; the delays have been
caused by the company's weak liquidity.

                         Amount

   Long-Term Loan          41.6       CRISIL D (Downgraded from
                                      'CRISIL BB/Stable')

SPEWPL also has large working capital requirements and customer
concentration in its revenue profile. These rating weaknesses are
partially offset by the benefits that SPEWPL derives from its
strong track record in the automobile components industry.

Set up in 1979 in Chennai (Tamil Nadu) by Mr. Sushil Haridass and
Mr. C K Haridass, SPEWPL manufactures automobile components,
including steering races and retainers for two-wheelers. The
company sells its products to Hero MotoCorp Limited (rated
'CRISIL AAA/FAAA/Stable/CRISIL A1+') and Royal Enfield, a unit of
Eicher Motors Ltd. SPEWPL also undertakes jobwork for Ashok
Leyland Ltd (rated 'CRISIL AA-/Stable/CRISIL A1+'), Delphi-TVS
Diesel Systems Ltd, and Ucal Auto Pvt Ltd.

For 2010-11 (refers to financial year, April 1 to March 31),
SPEWPL reported a profit after tax (PAT) of INR7.7 million on net
sales of INR340.4 million, against a PAT of INR6.6 million on net
sales of INR265.1 million for 2009-10.

same time, we lowered our long-term corporate credit rating on
Agri International Resources Pte. Ltd. (CC/Watch Negative/--) to
'CC' from 'CCC+'. We also lowered our issue rating on Agri
International's guaranteed US$150 million senior secured notes
due July 15, 2012, to 'CC' from 'CCC+'. All the ratings remain on
CreditWatch, where they were first placed with negative
implications on May 31, 2012. AI Finance B.V., a wholly owned
subsidiary of Indonesian plantation company Agri International,
issued the notes," S&P said.

"We lowered the ratings because BSP is taking longer than we had
expected to finalize a loan to repay the guaranteed notes of its
subsidiary Agri International," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst Vishal Kulkarni. "Any further delay would substantially
increase the risk of default by Agri International. Due to a
cross default clause in BSP's syndicated bank loan documents, a
default on Agri International's notes would be tantamount to a
default by BSP."

"We understand that BSP is in discussions with prospective
lenders for refinancing the notes. Such an arrangement could
materialize close to the notes' maturity date of July 15, 2012,"
S&P said.

"We aim to resolve the CreditWatch placements within the next
three weeks," said Mr. Kulkarni. "We will lower our ratings on
BSP and on Agri International to 'D' if Agri International fails
to repay the notes by July 15, 2012. We could upgrade the
companies to up to 'CCC+' if Agri International refinances the
notes on time."

ELPIDA MEMORY: Micron Agrees to Buy Firm for JPY200 Billion
-----------------------------------------------------------
Kyodo News reports that Micron Technology Inc. has agreed to buy
Elpida Memory Inc. for about JPY200 billion, paving the way for a
foreign firm to rehabilitate the only Japanese maker of dynamic
random access memory chips, sources said Friday.

Kyodo News' sources said Micron is expected to also invest around
JPY100 billion to boost production facilities at Elpida.

According to the report, sources said the Idaho-based firm will
seek to write off around 70% of the failed chipmaker's
liabilities, totaling about JPY420 billion.

Reuters, citing the Nikkei business daily, relates that Elpida's
creditors have agreed to forgive 70% of JPY420 billion (US$5.3
billion) of debts.

Elpida will submit its restructuring plan to the Tokyo district
court by August 21, Kyodo News adds.

                           About Elpida Memory

Elpida Memory Inc. (TYO:6665) -- http://www.elpida.com/ja/-- is
a Japan-based company principally engaged in the development,
design, manufacture and sale of semiconductor products, with a
focus on dynamic random access memory (DRAM) silicon chips.  The
main products are DDR3 SDRAM, DDR2 SDRAM, DDR SDRAM, SDRAM,
Mobile RAM and XDR DRAM, among others.  The Company distributes
its products to both domestic and overseas markets, including the
United States, Europe, Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong and others.
The company has eight subsidiaries and two associated companies.

After semiconductor prices plunged, Japan's largest maker of DRAM
chips filed for bankruptcy in February with liabilities of 448
billion yen ($5.6 billion) after losing money for five quarters.
Elpida Memory and its subsidiary, Akita Elpida Memory, Inc.,
filed for corporate reorganization proceedings in Tokyo District
Court on Feb. 27, 2012.  The Tokyo District Court immediately
rendered a temporary restraining order to restrain creditors from
demanding repayment of debt or exercising their rights with
respect to the company's assets absent prior court order.
Atsushi Toki, Attorney-at-Law, has been appointed by the Tokyo
Court as Supervisor and Examiner in the case.

Elpida Memory Inc. sought the U.S. bankruptcy court's recognition
of its reorganization proceedings currently pending in Tokyo
District Court, Eight Civil Division.  Yuko Sakamoto, as foreign
representative, filed a Chapter 15 petition (Bankr. D. Del. Case
No. 12-10947) for Elpida on March 19, 2012.


NCI TRUST: S&P Puts 'B-' Rating on Class D Certs. on Watch Neg
--------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services has placed its ratings on the
class A to D trust certificates issued under the NCI Trust
Certificate-2 transaction on CreditWatch with negative
implications.

"The trust certificates issued under this transaction were
originally backed by one specified bond and seven loans, six of
which were repaid. As of , only one loan and one specified bond
remain. The loan and specified bond originally represented a
combined 41% or so of the total rated initial issuance amount of
the trust certificates. The remaining loan defaulted in February
2012, while the expected maturity of the specified bond was in
the same month," S&P said.

"Although collection activities relating to the remaining loan
and specified bond are underway, the sales of the related
collateral properties have not yet been completed. As such, we
see downward pressure on the ratings on the class A to D trust
certificates, given the status of the property sales and the
limited remaining period until the transaction's legal final
maturity date in September 2013. We placed our ratings on classes
A to D on CreditWatch negative to reflect this view. We intend to
review our ratings on these classes after reviewing our
assumption for the likely collection amount from, and
ascertaining progress in the sales of, the properties," S&P said.

NCI Trust Certificate-2 is a multiborrower commercial mortgage-
backed securities (CMBS) transaction. The trust certificates
issued under the transaction were initially secured by seven
loans and one specified bond that were ultimately secured by 22
real estate properties. The transaction was arranged by Nomura
Securities Co. Ltd.

"The ratings reflect our opinion on the likelihood of the full
and timely payment of interest and the ultimate repayment of
principal by the transaction's legal final maturity date in
September 2013 for the class A certificates, and the full payment
of interest and ultimate repayment of principal by the legal
final maturity date for the class B to D certificates," S&P said.

TOKYO ELECTRIC: Moody's Affirms 'Ba3' CFR; Outlook Negative
-----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Japan K.K. has affirmed the ratings of Tokyo Electric
Power Company, Incorporated.

The affected ratings are its Ba3 corporate family rating; Ba2
senior secured rating; and B1 long-term issuer rating.

The rating outlook remains negative.

The affirmation follows the change in TEPCO's ownership status
due to shareholder approval on June 27, 2012, of a substantial
capital injection from the government, as proposed by the
company's management.

Consequently, TEPCO will be about 25% owned by the government
following the injection by the Nuclear Damage Compensation
Facilitation Fund (not rated by Moody's, 50% owned by the
government) by July 25, 2012.

Accordingly, Moody's now views TEPCO -- previously an entirely
private company -- as a government related issuer (GRI) and
analyzes it under Moody's GRI Rating Methodology.

Moody's notes that the Nuclear Damage Compensation Facilitation
Fund plans to eventually return TEPCO to full private status and
in accordance with the comprehensive special business plan
jointly prepared by the company and the fund, and approved by the
government on May 9, 2012.

Moody's has not adjusted TEPCO's ratings in light of the
government's ownership because they already factor in the direct
and indirect support provided by the government.

Government support for TEPCO following the March 11, 2011
earthquake has been extensive and involved liquidity support
including that from the Development Bank of Japan (Aa3),
establishment of the compensation framework, and approval of
TEPCO's special business plans.

Moody's notes that this support has been based on the political
consensus on the need to keep TEPCO financially viable to
minimize the overall burden on taxpayers, ensure stable energy
supply, and compensation payments.

Without support from the government, TEPCO would be technically
in default, given the gap between its projected compensation
obligations of JPY2.5 trillion and its equity of JP812 billion at
end-March 2012. This is the rationale for Moody's baseline credit
assessment (BCA) of 18 (equivalent to Caa2).

Because of its full reliance on the domestic market, the
dependence of TEPCO on the government is "very high".

In view of developments since March 11, 2011, the probability of
support is "high". In Moody's Joint Default Analysis, support
probability is a measure of the possibility that the government
will provide a GRI extraordinary support, such as actual
financial support to avoid default of the GRI.

Moody's recognizes that the company's special business plan --
including possibility of further expansion of costs for plant
decommissioning and additional compensation -- ensures the high
possibility of additional support from the government.

The rating outlook remains negative. This reflects concern that
there is some uncertainty over the timely execution of some of
the aspects of the business plan and greater clarity is required.

The principal methodologies used in these ratings were Moody's
"Government-Related Issuers: Methodology Update" and "Regulated
Electric and Gas Utilities", published respectively on September
30, 2010, and available on www.moodys.co.jp.

Tokyo Electric Power Co., Inc. (TEPCO) is the largest integrated
electricity supplier in Japan and is headquartered in Tokyo.

NATHAN'S FINANCE: Civil Case to Start This Month
------------------------------------------------
Catherine Harris at stuff.co.nz reports that a civil case against
the directors and auditors of Nathans Finance could get underway
in court as soon as next month, according to the receivers'
lawyer.

stuff.co.nz notes that Nathan's Finance collapsed in 2007 owing
investors NZ$174 million, and its four directors were convicted
last year of making untrue statements in documents related to a
debt offering in 2006.

Two directors, Kenneth Moses and Mervyn Doolan, were jailed for
more than two years while Donald Young received home detention.

On June 28, another chapter in the Nathans' saga came to a close
when the High Court in Auckland ruled that receivers
PricewaterhouseCooopers should receive NZ$885,000 in reparation
from Messrs. Moses, Doolan and Young, according to the report.

stuff.co.nz says PwC has already begun civil proceedings against
Nathan's directors and auditors on investors' behalf, and a High
Court trial date could be fixed as soon as next month.

"We expect to get a date shortly," the report quotes PwC lawyer
Murray Tingey as saying.

Just over 7,000 investors were owed money by Nathans and
Mr. Tingey said most of them were elderly and in no position to
fund legal costs on their own, stuff.co.nz relates.

stuff.co.nz notes that PWC's civil case will seek at least
NZ$66 million from Nathan's directors and the company's auditors,
Staples Rodway, but the claim could top NZ$100 million when
unquantified costs are added.

While the directors might not have that sort of money, Mr. Tingey
said insurance, particularly the auditor's insurance, might come
into play, the report says.

Unlike the criminal case which focussed on directors making
mistatements, Mr. Tingey said the civil case would centre on
their common-law obligations, that they "fell below the standards
of a reasonable director," notes stuff.co.nz.

The case against the auditors would focus on breaches of contract
and negligence, the report adds.

                        About Nathans Finance

Nathans Finance Ltd went into receivership when the finance
company's trustee, Perpetual Trust Limited, appointed receivers
on Aug. 20, 2007.  The company owed approximately NZ$174 million
to some 7,000 investors.  Nathans Finance is a wholly owned
subsidiary of VTL Group Limited, which also went into
receivership in November 2008.  VTL Group owns a number of
vending machine related businesses which operate in New Zealand,
Australia, North America and Europe.

THANACHART BANK: Fitch Affirms Support Rating Floor at 'BB+'
------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has revised Thanachart Bank Public Company
Limited's and majority shareholder Thanachart Capital Public
Company Limited's Outlooks to Negative from Stable.  Their
ratings have been affirmed.

The revision of TBANK's Outlook reflects deterioration in its
financial profile in the past two years, despite the bank's
metrics already being largely inferior to those of similarly
rated international peers.  TBANK's funding profile in particular
has shown more vulnerability than previously expected, despite an
enlarged branch network.  Its deposit base has contracted in the
last two years while reliance on funding through bills of
exchange has increased.  Although the bank has seen modest
improvement in recent months in terms of its deposit base and a
higher percentage of low-cost depositors, Fitch has some
reservations over whether they will be sustained.  Meanwhile,
high operating costs and margin pressure continue to hamper
profitability improvement.

Fitch is of the view that management's strategy to strengthen its
retail deposit franchise could face challenges.  Successful
execution would support a revision back to Stable Outlook, but
risks remain as to deposit expansion being achieved at higher
funding costs due to intense competition.  This may slow the
recovery of profitability over the next one to two years to
levels before its acquisition of Siam City Bank Public Company
Limited (SCIB).

Moreover, high operating costs would continue to constrain the
bank's profitability enhancement process in the medium term as a
result of ongoing system investments and resource
rationalisation.  Fitch expects cost reduction to be gradual over
the next two to three years.  The bank's policy to increase
provisioning could also impact profitability improvement.

TBANK's asset quality has improved, but at a slower pace than
Fitch's expectation over the last two years.  The agency believes
that the flood impact on the bank's asset quality should be
temporary and moderate.  Downside risks in the medium term,
however, include a renewed volatile operating environment and
potential increase of credit risk due to its asset
diversification strategy.  These in turn could heighten
provisioning risk and hinder asset quality and profitability
improvement.

A downgrade of TBANK could result from a lack of material
improvement in profitability, asset quality or its funding and
liquidity profile in the next one to two years.  Conversely,
improvement in its funding profile, evidenced by deposit base
expansion without sacrificing net interest margin over the next
12 to 18 months -- consistent with the bank's strategy -- may
lead to the Outlook being revised back to Stable. Increased
majority ownership and support by Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS; 'AA-
'/Stable) would also be viewed as positive for the ratings.

The revision of Outlook for TCAP is consistent with the Negative
Outlook of TBANK. TCAP is rated one notch below TBANK, based on
its structural subordination.  TCAP mainly relies on dividend
payment from TBANK.  TCAP's double leverage (measured by
investments in subsidiaries and related companies compared with
shareholder's equity) remained moderately high at 111% at end-
March 2012, although this should be stable over the next two to
three years given no further plans for acquisition or to raise
equity.

Future rating actions on TBANK could lead to similar rating
actions on TCAP.  A wider notching between TCAP and TBANK may
result from a further increase in TCAP's double leverage and
significantly higher leverage.

TBANK is the main operating entity within the Thanachart Group.
TCAP currently holds 51% in TBANK, while BNS, Canada's third-
largest bank, holds 49%.  TBANK is the sixth largest banks in
Thailand with a market share of 7.3% in assets and 6.4% in
deposits at end-March 2012.  TBANK has a solid franchise in the
domestic auto hire purchase market.
The following ratings have been affirmed:

TBANK

  -- Long-Term Foreign Currency Issuer Default Rating (IDR)
     affirmed at 'BBB-'; Outlook revised to Negative from Stable
  -- Short-Term Foreign IDR affirmed at 'F3'
  -- Support Rating Floor affirmed at 'BB+'
  -- National Long-Term Rating affirmed at 'A+(tha)'; Outlook
     revised to Negative from Stable
  -- National Short-Term Rating affirmed at 'F1+(tha)'
  -- Support Rating affirmed at '3'
  -- Viability Rating affirmed at 'bbb-'

TCAP

  -- National Long-Term Rating affirmed at 'A(tha)' ; Outlook
     revised to Negative from Stable
  -- National Short-Term Rating affirmed at 'F1(tha)'
  -- Support Rating affirmed at '5'
