CASINO GUICHARD: Subordinated Notes Downgraded to 'BB'
------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings downgraded Casino Guichard-Perrachon S.A. to Senior
Unsecured 'BBB-' (BBB minus) from 'BBB' and Short-term 'F3' from
'F2', and removed them from Rating Watch Negative (RWN).  A
Stable Outlook has been assigned.

Fitch has also downgraded the deeply subordinated undated notes
issued in January 2006 to 'BB' from 'BB+', removing them from
RWN.  The downgrade primarily reflects the deterioration in
Casino's business environment due to increased price competition
in France, while the group's financial profile remains stretched.

The Rating Outlook is Stable.  The ratings are based on fully
adjusted ratios encompassing the various probabilities of
Casino's put arrangements becoming debt.  It includes, in
particular, the Monoprix and Franprix-Leader Price put options.
Dividends paid (in cash or shares) are included in fixed-charge
calculations given the need to service debt at the holding
company, Rallye, level.  Rallye is owned by M. J-C Naouri,
Casino's chairman and chief executive.  Fitch also factors in a
potential deterioration in operating profit resulting from the
deflationary environment in the French food retail market.

Casino derived 91% of its FY04 operating profit from France where
food retail has become deflationary since the second half of
2004.  Further prospective deflationary pressure is likely once
the ongoing review of the French pricing regulation, the Galland
law, is completed, which is likely in the second half of 2005.

Casino enjoys a strong position within the discount supermarket
and convenience store sectors.  However, partly as a result of
its smaller market share, Casino will remain susceptible to price
deflation.  Casino's Geant hypermarkets and supermarkets,
accounting for 41% of domestic operating profit, are likely to be
left with no option but to adjust prices to those of competitors.
The group has already started to improve its price positioning by
increasing the proportion of own-label goods, which are 30-60%
cheaper than branded products.  Casino's Leader Price discount
supermarkets recorded negative like-for-like sales in Q105,
suggesting that hypermarket price cuts by competitors have lured
some customers back.

Casino's expansion overseas is unlikely to mitigate the
increasing challenges in the French retail market.  The
additional stake acquired in the Brazilian retailer, CBD, secures
joint control but does not give full access to cash flows.

Casino intends to stabilize its financial profile, although no
material improvement is anticipated in the short to medium-term.
The expected listing of a property company operating shopping
malls, and the payment of a large portion of dividend in shares,
will help fund EUR730 million of additional investments made
since the beginning of 2005 (CBD and Vindemia).  Fitch notes in
particular that although the maturity of the Cora equity swap has
been extended until 2011, margin calls could result from a
deterioration of the operating performance of Cora, a French
regional supermarket chain.  Fitch factors in some EUR500 million
of additional liability as a result of the Cora equity swap.

The ratings were placed on RWN on 4 May 2005, reflecting concerns
over the acquisition of Vindemia and CBD as part of the group's
international strategy, performance of the domestic operations,
and future contingent liabilities.  Following a management
meeting these issues surrounding the RWN have been resolved as
outlined above.

FRESENIUS MEDICAL: Downgrade Likely After Renal Care Acquisition
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services maintained its 'BB+' long-term
corporate credit ratings on the world's leading dialysis services
provider, Germany-based Fresenius Medical Care AG (FME), and its
parent, Fresenius AG (Fresenius), on CreditWatch with negative
implications, where they were placed on May 4, 2005, following
FME's announcement that it had agreed to acquire North America's
third-largest dialysis services provider Renal Care Group Inc.
(RCG; BB-/Positive/--).

Standard & Poor's plans to lower the corporate credit ratings on
both entities to 'BB' on completion of the $4 billion (including
$500 million of assumed debt) debt-financed acquisition.  The
outlook will be negative.  At the same time, the subordinated
debt rating on the trust preferred securities issued by various
FME subsidiaries will be lowered to 'B+' from 'BB-'.  The
acquisition is likely to be completed during the fourth quarter
of 2005 once approvals have been received from RCG's shareholders
and the antitrust authorities.

"The downgrade will primarily reflect the substantial
deterioration in the group's debt measures on completion of the
acquisition," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Omar Saeed.

This is despite FME's intention to raise potentially about EUR300
million ($400 million) of proceeds from a voluntary scheme under
which its preference shareholders are able to convert their
holdings into ordinary shares during the current year.  FME also
anticipates divestitures worth between $200 million and $250
million, reflecting disposals necessary to satisfy regulatory
authorities and the optimization of its dialysis clinics
portfolio.

Pro forma for the anticipated divestitures and potential share
conversion, Standard & Poor's estimates FME's net debt to EBITDA
adjusted for leases, pensions, and litigation-related-provisions
(after exceptional cash costs) and adjusted funds from operations
(FFO) to net debt at about 4.7x and 13%, respectively, for the 12
months to March 31, 2005.  This reflects a substantial
deterioration from the current 2.9x and 25%. Fresenius' debt
measures are also likely to fall broadly in line with those of
FME.

The negative outlook will reflect both entities' below-par pro
forma debt protection measures for the 'BB' ratings.

"Standard & Poor's notes FME's and Fresenius' unexpected shift to
a significantly more aggressive financial posture, particularly
as the group had been in the process of deleveraging its balance
sheet for the past three to four years," said Mr. Saeed.

"We are therefore concerned that the group might not be able to
sustain the required rapid deleveraging over the next two years
if acquisition spending is significant," he added.  "The 'BB'
ratings could be lowered in the next 12 months if the group fails
to demonstrate the ability to achieve and sustain ratios
consistent with the rating level by year-end 2007."

From a business risk perspective, Standard & Poor's considers the
acquisition as mildly positive in the long run, reflecting the
enlarged group's solidified market position, its ability to
further improve payment terms with private payors, and improved
operating margin.

LEICA CAMERA: Hermes Offers Conditional Rescue Package
------------------------------------------------------
Luxury goods retailer Hermes International, a major shareholder
of troubled Leica Camera, plans to bail out the loss-making
photography group, Le Figaro says.

But before any rescue deal, Hermes wants the group to either form
alliances within the digital photography sector or focus on the
quality of its optical lenses and binoculars, which account for
40% of its turnover.  Hermes controls 31.5% of Leica.

Leica, however, has been unsuccessful in creating any alliances.
It has yet to produce a successful and affordable digital cam and
the division only contribute 10% to turnover.  Leica's deficit
gave Hermes a shortfall of EUR12 million in 2004.

Shareholders approved management's proposed restructuring
measures last month, which include a simplified capital
reduction, an increase of the share capital against contributions
in cash and a creation of authorized capital.  Leica will carry
out the rights issue in the coming weeks.  Josef Spichtig, who is
known for rescuing troubled firms, currently heads the group.

                            *   *   *

In February, Leica's banks partially terminated their credit
lines after the firm said it expects a loss of half of its
registered share capital in March 2005.

The Leica Camera Group closed the first half of its fiscal year
2004/2005 (FY end March 31) with sales of EUR45 million.  This
is 15.0% below the sales figure in the first half last year.
Sales fell short of the Company's expectations.

At -EUR4.2 million, the operating result for the months April to
September was EUR1.9 million below the comparable prior year
figure.  Including extraordinary expenses of EUR2.4 million for
the restructuring measures currently implemented, the after-tax
result for the half-year comes to a net loss of EUR7.5 million
from EUR2.9 million at the first half of 2003/2004, according to
Die Welt.

RUNGIS EXPRESS: New Owner Aims for Breakeven this Year
------------------------------------------------------
Insolvent exotic food supplier Rungis Express is optimistic it
will break even this year, Handelsblatt says.

New head Michael Spat, whose consortium took over Rungis last
week, revealed the group's operating business remained
profitable, but was plagued by high interest payments on its
EUR16 million debt.  Rungis had reportedly met all its
liabilities during the insolvency proceedings.

Mr. Spat's consortium, which includes logistics firm Cool Chain
Group (CCG), investment group SpecTra Industriekapital and
Austrian company R&S Gourmet Express, outbid the wife of founder
George W. Kastner, who was backed by Dirk investor Westerheide.

The new owners are currently holding talks with Dresdner Bank
over future financing.  The group is expected to shut down parts
of its Satteldorf distribution center, which employs around 70
staff.

                            *   *   *

Rungis filed for insolvency in January following a string of
financial problems.  The group's collapse rendered most of its
workers jobless.  Since entering insolvency proceedings, the
group is thought to have cut its debt significantly.

(JSC) KAZPOST: Assigned Low-B Issuer Credit Rating
--------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its 'BB+' long-term
foreign and local currency global issuer credit ratings to 100%
state-owned postal company Kazpost (JSC).  The outlook is stable.
At the same time, Standard & Poor's assigned its 'kzAA-',
Kazakhstan national scale rating, to the issuer.

The ratings on Kazpost reflect its status as a 100% state-owned
entity, and the strong support it receives from the Republic of
Kazakhstan (foreign currency BBB-/Stable/A-3; local currency
BBB/Stable/A-3).

"This support comes in the form of guarantees and capital
injections, in recognition of the important public service role
that Kazpost provides in rural areas," said Standard & Poor's
credit analyst Felix Ejgel.  "These elements are mitigated by the
company's weak financial profile due to the low profitability of
core services, and strong competition faced by the company in
Kazakh cities."

Standard & Poor's follows the top-down approach for assessing
Kazpost, which is therefore rated higher than its standalone
credit quality would warrant.  The absence of an explicit state
guarantee of all the company's debt or a liquidity mechanism
justifies the difference between the ratings on Kazpost and those
on the Republic of Kazakhstan.

JSC Kazpost is the national postal operator in Kazakhstan, which
distributes letters, printed materials, express deliveries, and
parcels.  It also provides certain financial services, such as
transferring salaries and pensions, collecting utility charges
and tax payments, and maintaining deposits.  In 2004, company's
sales were about US$50 million.

The company's profitability is stable, but modest due to
Kazpost's mandate to provide services throughout a vast, sparsely
populated Republic, together with the need to increase personnel
spending and to implement a strategic investment program.

"We do not expect Kazpost's status to change in the foreseeable
future, and the company should remain underpinned by a strong
level of state support," said Mr. Ejgel.  "The potential
deregulation of postal services and reduction in direct subsidies
after 2007 will be offset by the expected improvement of the
company's market position thanks to its implementation of a
massive strategic investment program."

Gate in Shanghai and the Guangdong province.  In order to
specifically further develop the Guangdong province, Numico has
set up an exclusive marketing and distribution agreement with
Hutchison which will come into effect as of 1 July 2005.

Since the announcement, Numico completed the divestiture of its
dairy manufacturing plant in China, sold the underperforming
'HLRN' brand to Olamar Holding N.V. and withdrew 'QQBB' -- a
mainstream baby milk brand -- from the Chinese market.

The restructuring of the Chinese baby food activities will result
in additional one-off restructuring costs of approximately EUR2
million which will be taken in the second quarter of 2005.

Royal Numico is a high-growth, high-margin specialized nutrition
company with leading positions in Baby Food and Clinical
Nutrition and brings products to the market under the brand names
Nutricia, Milupa and Cow & Gate, among others.  The company

FSO: Government Okays Stake Sale to AvtoZAZ
-------------------------------------------
Poland has approved Ukrainian AvtoZAZ's plan to buy a 20% stake
in Daewoo-FSO factories in Warsaw, according to AFX.  The two
signed a preliminary deal for the transfer of the stake last
month.

Last year, AvtoZAZ reportedly started buying FSO's debt from
creditor banks.  About US$8 million were sold, according to
Millennium Bank.

FSO's troubles started after Daewoo Motor went belly up in 2001
and worsened during the Polish car market slump in 2003.
General Motors Corp. took over Daewoo Motor in 2002, but Daewoo-
FSO was excluded from the transaction.  Daewoo Motors of South
Korea originally owned 80% of the company.

FSO is a large Polish producer of passenger cars and other
mechanical vehicles, trailers, spare parts and accessories.  It
is located in Warsaw and employs more than 3,000.  Its bank
creditors are Millennium Bank, Bank Pekao, BPH PBK, Bank
Handlowy, ING Bank Slaski and Kredyt Bank.  Debt to the banks
was PLN591 million as of 2003.  The loans are secured by assets.

COSMOROM SA: Cosmote Shareholders Support Stake Purchase
--------------------------------------------------------
Shareholders of Greece's Cosmote have approved the planned
purchase of 70% of mobile arm Cosmorom S.A. from Romanian
fixed-line carrier Romtelecom, according to MPA News.  The
transaction was estimated worth EUR120 million (US$150.8
million).  It is expected to close in the first half of July.
Cosmoron's parent, Romtelecom, is keeping the remaining 30% of
the company.

OTE, which also owns 54% of Romtelecom, raised the prospect of
selling Cosmorom in 2003, according to a previous report from
TCR-Europe.  Cosmorom was then operating at a loss, with debt
estimated at EUR172 million.

Analysts attribute the negative outlook at Cosmorom to
insufficient investments in the company, which entered the market
too late.

Moreover, the company was not benefiting from national coverage
of its services, making it unable to compete with Orange and
MobiFon.

Cosmorom posted net losses at EUR41.9 million and operational
income at EUR12.2 million in the first nine months of 2002, as
well as an EBITDA loss of EUR21.9 million.  Subscribers of
Cosmorom were pegged at only around 45,000, and users of prepaid
services at 50,000 in September, compared to an estimated 2.5
million customers for each of the company's competitors.

CIRSA GROUP: Long-term Corporate Credit Rated 'BB-'
---------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services affirmed its 'BB-' long-term
corporate credit rating on Spanish gaming company Cirsa Business
Corp. S.A. after a review.  The outlook is stable.  It also
affirmed its 'B+' senior unsecured debt rating on Cirsa Finance
Luxembourg S.A.

At the same time, Standard & Poor's assigned its 'B' senior
unsecured debt rating to the proposed EUR130 million bond issue
by Cirsa Capital Luxembourg S.A. and guaranteed by Cirsa Business
Corp. and several subsidiaries.

The affirmation is based on the expectation that the company will
execute its investment plans gradually, with EBITDA growth
matching debt-funded investments so that credit protection
measures follow an improving trend.  Debt and debt-like tax
obligations, pro forma for the proposed issue, totaled EUR506
million at March 31, 2005.

The 'B' rating on the new bond issue reflects the high level of
priority obligations arising from secured debt, capital lease
obligations, tax obligations, and operating liabilities at
non-guarantor subsidiaries.  The one-notch difference between the
proposed EUR130 million bond due 2012 and the EUR270 million bond
due 2014 reflects the fact that a guarantee from Buenos Aires
Casino, which controls business assets generating about 40% of
EBITDA, was extended to the higher-rated EUR270 million bonds
issue but not to the EUR130 million issue.  This is because under
Buenos Aires Casino's bylaws the company cannot extend guarantees
to an issue that has no funds earmarked for its development.

The ratings on Cirsa continue to reflect: the company's
aggressive financial profile; Standard & Poor's expectation of
limited free cash flow generation for the group in the next year;
and the high percentage of group profit generated from Argentine
operations, which Standard & Poor's regards as inherently more
unpredictable than Cirsa's Spanish operations. These factors are
partially mitigated, however, by the group's leading position in
the Spanish gaming market, regulatory barriers to entry, and
predictable cash flow generation.

"Cirsa's Spanish gaming operations produce predictable cash flow
and the group has an adequate liquidity position," said Standard
& Poor's credit analyst Olli Rouhiainen.  "Together, these should
mitigate any short-term cash flow volatility from Latin American
operations or from the phasing of capital investments."

The outlook or ratings could be revised, however, if the company
incurs capital expenditure outside its current investment
program, if working capital absorption by the existing operations
increases, or if earnings fail to improve from current levels in
the course of 2005.

TERRA MITICA: Accused of Issuing Fake VAT Invoices
--------------------------------------------------
Theme park Terra Mitica is included in the list of companies
reported by the Spanish tax office to have issued false VAT
invoices, according to El Pais.

The report cites the treasury saying Terra Mitica issued
EUR143,000 in fake invoices in order to claim VAT in 2000 and
2001.  The treasury has submitted a list of dozen companies under
suspicion for the fraud.

The public prosecutor of the high court of justice of the
autonomous region of Valencia is investigating the matter, which
is reportedly connected to works carried out on the premises of
Terra Mitica.  The scheme is estimated to have involved EUR2.4
million.

Terra Mitica lost EUR35 million in 2004.  This year it expects to
generate EBITDA of EUR2.2 million, and come out of receivership.
The firm went belly up in May 2004.  As part of restructuring, it
made redundant 5% of its 1,000 workforce in December, and cut
directors' salaries.  It also renewed existing agreements with
travel agencies and tour operators.  Its contracts with suppliers
are now under review.

INMARSAT HOLDINGS: Shares Start Trading on London Bourse
--------------------------------------------------------
Inmarsat officially listed on the London Stock Exchange on June
22 under the ticker symbol ISAT.

The listing comes six years after Inmarsat's transition from
Intergovernmental Organization to private company, and one month
short of the 26th anniversary of the company's creation.

                            *   *   *

In June, Moody's Investors Service placed the debt ratings of
Inmarsat Holdings Limited under review for possible upgrade.  The
review is based on the potential for debt reduction and
improvements in the company's capital structure in connection
with its planned initial public offering and flotation on the
London Stock Exchange and follows the company's recent
announcement with respect to the expected IPO.

Ratings place under review for possible upgrade are:

(a) The B1 senior implied rating of Inmarsat Holdings Limited;

(b) The Caa2 unsecured issuer rating of Inmarsat Holdings
    Limited;

(c) The Caa1 rating on the guaranteed senior discount notes due
    2012 at Inmarsat Finance II plc;

(d) The Ba3 rating on the senior secured bank credit facilities
    at Inmarsat Investments Limited;

(e) The B2 rating on the guaranteed senior notes due 2012 at
    Inmarsat Finance plc.

Moody's review of Inmarsat's ratings will focus on anticipated
trends with respect to operating performance and on the impact
from the expected changes in the capital structure resulting from
the planned IPO on Inmarsat's credit profile and its financial
and shareholder remuneration policies going forward.

Inmarsat expects to raise approximately US$665 million in net
primary proceeds from the IPO and US$250 from a new credit
facility, which the company intends to use primarily to repay
outstanding debt.  In particular, the company aims to prepay
approximately US$356 million principal and related accrued
interests of its subordinated preference certificates,
approximately US$728 million principal amount outstanding under
its senior bank facilities and redeem up to 35% (or approximately
US$180 million including early redemption penalty) of the senior
notes due 2012 at Inmarsat Finance plc.

Headquartered in London, Inmarsat is a leading provider of global
mobile satellite communication services.  For year ending 31
December 2004, the company reported revenues of approximately
US$480.7 million (2003: US$504.5 million).

NETWORK RAIL: Witness of Attempt to Quell Shareholders Surfaces
---------------------------------------------------------------
The Government had prepared GBP1 billion to pay shareholders to
agree to an administration for Railtrack in 2001, the high court
was told on Tuesday.  The money was not distributed, however,
since the shareholders cooperated with the plan, a written
witness statement by former Rail regulator Tom Winsor revealed,
according to Birmingham Post.

Railtrack, now Network Rail, went into administration in 2001
after the government withdrew funding for the company whose
reputation was wrecked by a fatal crash in 2000 at Hatfield.

Shareholders numbering 48,000 are now bringing a suit of
misfeasance in public office and breach of human rights against
the government to claim GBP157 million in compensation.

Mr. Winsor said he did not see documentary evidence on
Railtrack's insolvency until days after the firm was placed into
administration.  According to him the judge who made the order
did not learn that Railtrack has an alternative source of funding
through the Office of the Rail Regulator, which could have
avoided insolvency.  He learned of the plan to silence
shareholders from then Transport Secretary Stephen Byers four
months.

NETWORK RAIL: Shareholders Present Evidence on Misfeasance Case
---------------------------------------------------------------
The High court on Wednesday heard evidence that the government
deliberately sought to bankrupt Railtrack plc for political
reasons.

The evidence is contained in e-mails by Treasury adviser, Shriti
Vadera to government officials working on a rescue plan for
Railtrack.  Shareholders claim authorities were trying to plot
the firm's collapse alongside discussions over a rescue during
the summer of 2001.  They said the officials intended to wipe out
company's equity value and allow state to take control of company
at no cost, according to The Independent.  The case is seeking
GBP157 million in compensation.

Then transport secretary Stephen Byers placed Railtrack in
administration early in October 2001.  He said he was forced to
do so after finding the firm insolvent.

The case is being held at the high court of Mr. Justice Lindsay.
Jonathan Sumption is spearheading the government's defense.
Geoffrey Weir is the shareholders' lead claimant.  Keith Rowley
QC is the shareholders' barrister.  The investors are acting
together as The Railtrack Private Shareholders Action Group
(RPSAG).

RAMCO ENERGY: Shows Signs of Revival
------------------------------------
Ramco Energy looked to have survived a trying period after banks
wrote off GBP53 million of its debt, and its pre-tax losses for
last year narrowed, according to The Herald.

Ramco incurred a total of GBP68.6 million to fund its Seven Heads
offshore oil production in Ireland, whose production fell
dramatically in the past months.  GBP56.6 million of the debt is
non-recourse, secured only against the Group's interest in the
Seven Heads gas field.  The balance of GBP12 million is also
secured against the Oil Services business. Full repayment of the
GBP68.6 million is due by 30 June 2009.

Ramco negotiated the rescheduling of its debt with lenders after
encountering problems with its Seven Heads' operations.
Its bankers and a major creditor previously agreed to extend
waiver agreements for GBP12.0 million and GBP1.55 million in debt
until it sells the 86.5% interest it holds in the troublesome
operation, and other assets.

In a reversal of fortune, Ramco reported that turnover of GBP36.9
million in 2004, up from GBP20.8 million helped by upbeat sales
in Seven Heads.  Pre-tax losses were down to GBP3.2 million in
2004 from GBP104 million in 2003.  Last year's result was
affected by impairment provision against the carrying value of
the Seven Head gas interest.

Ramco may only have to sell part of its profitable oil services
subsidiary to raise the 12m needed to clear the share of its
borrowings that was secured against the operation.

A sale of its interest in Seven Heads and other others is feared
to left Ramco relying largely on a cash-generative services
business to fund early stage exploration activity, in countries
including Bulgaria.

Ramco aims to be debt free by the end of 2005 and participate in
a drilling program in 2006.

Ramco has made an appeal to a Texas court against a breach of
contract suit in relation to investments in an oilfield
development project in Kazakhstan.

Ramco is being advised by Canaccord Capital.  Its asset sale
manager is Ernst & Young.  A company profile is available at
