ALCATEL: S&P Affirms Long-Term Corporate Credit Rating to BB
------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services revised its outlook on French
telecommunications-equipment maker Alcatel to positive from
stable, following a review of the company's fourth-quarter
financial 2005 results and of its trading prospects for 2006.  
At the same time, Standard & Poor's affirmed all its ratings on
the group, including the 'BB' long-term and 'B' short-term
corporate credit ratings.

"The outlook revision reflects expectations that anticipated
mid-single-digit growth rates for the telecoms-equipment
industry during 2006, combined with Alcatel's leaner cost
structure, should yield an improved free-cash-flow-generation
profile for the group," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst
Leandro de Torres Zabala.

The telecoms-equipment industry is expected to grow at mid-
single-digit rates (at constant currency exchange rates) during
2006, albeit possibly at a more moderate pace than in 2005.  
This is expected to be supported by continuing significant
investments by telecoms operators in wireless communication
equipments, particularly in emerging markets, albeit also at
lower rates than in 2005. Trading levels will also be supported
by areas of growth in wireline technologies such as broadband
access, optics, and Internet-protocol (IP) networks, underpinned
by the advancement of triple-play services in the U.S. and in
Europe and the transformation of telecoms networks to all-IP.
Given the cost efficiencies achieved by Alcatel, the group
should be in a position to achieve EBIT in excess of the 2005
level of 9.1% and, critically, to raise its free-cash-flow-
generation profile, which has been Alcatel's weakest point over
the last few years.

"If these expectation are met, and the group maintains ample
liquidity and reduces gross leverage, the ratings could be
raised in the intermediate term," said Mr. de Torres Zabala.

belong to AXA Private Equity.  MDAX-listed Pfleiderer expects
the transaction to yield a capital gain of approximately EUR45
million after taxes.

A previous exclusivity agreement entered into with Vossloh AG,
Werdohl, was rescinded at the end of 2005 following a delay in
the approval procedure due to misgivings by the German anti-
trust authority.

The sale of Pfleiderer track systems marks the end of the
strategic realignment embarked on by Pfleiderer AG, which is now
concentrating entirely on expanding its Business Center
Engineered Wood internationally.

Headquartered in Neumarkt, Germany, Pfleiderer AG manufactures
engineered woods and infrastructure products through its
subsidiaries.  The Company produces wood-based panels for
furniture and interior fittings, track systems for urban and
intercity rail networks, and a range of poles and towers for
energy and commercial infrastructures.

                        *     *     *

Fitch Ratings affirmed Pfleiderer's Senior Unsecured 'BB' rating
and removed it from Rating Watch Negative.  A Stable Outlook has
been assigned.  The Short-term 'B' rating is also affirmed.

OLYMPIC AIRLINES: State Grants Creditor Protection Until Oct. 31
----------------------------------------------------------------
Creditors of Olympic Airlines will have to wait at least seven
months before they can recover their claims, Reuters says.

The Greek government extended the flag carrier's temporary
creditor protection until Oct. 31, to lessen the impact of an
adverse European Commission ruling.  According to Reuters, the
EU executive issued a ruling in September 2005 demanding that
Olympic Airways and its successor, Olympic Airlines, repay
EUR540 million in illegal state aid to Greece after the
Commission found out that the financial support extended to the
carrier was distorting competition.  

The ruling also hampered the government's effort to privatize
the loss-making carrier.

In December 2002, the Commission ruled illegal an aid granted to
Olympic Airways and ordered Greece to recover EUR160 million.  
In 2003, Greece set up Olympic Airlines to take over the flight
operations and most of the assets of Olympic Airways, leaving
behind almost all of its debts and circumventing the obligation
to recover the aid.

Greece, however, remain optimistic it could sell the airline.  
It is currently holding talks with possible buyers and declared
it would exhaust all means to materialize a sale.

Headquartered in Athens, Greece, Olympic Airlines S.A. --
http://www.olympicairlines.com/-- the holding company of the  
Olympic Airways group of companies, flies passengers and cargo
to five continents, while offering ground handling, technical
maintenance and information technology services to third
parties.  The group's net loss swelled to EUR87 million in 2004
from EUR23 million a year before.  Together with the 2004
deficit, Olympic's EUR110 million in accumulated losses are
nearly equivalent to its EUR130 million in equity.  

The government is currently looking for private investors for
the carrier, saying privatization is its only chance for
survival.  The state wants to dispose of the carrier to reduce
its EUR1.6 billion debt, one of the highest in the euro zone as
a percentage of gross domestic product.  The group aims to be
relaunched in April 2006, bearing the same logo and a similar
name.  Greece will retain investment bank Lazard as adviser.

MDM BANK: Moody's Rates US$2 Billion LPN Program at Ba2
-------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has assigned Ba2 and Not Prime long-
and short-term foreign currency bank deposit ratings and a D
Financial Strength Rating (FSR) to MDM Bank (Russia), which is
the lead operating entity in MDM Financial Group (MDM FG),
comprising over 90% of the group's total IFRS-consolidated
assets and shareholders' equity.  

At the same time Moody's has affirmed the Ba2/Not Prime ratings
assigned to MDM Bank's US$2 billion Program for the Issuance of
Loan Participation Notes.  The Notes will be issued by, but with
limited recourse to, MDM International Funding Plc (Ireland) for
the sole purpose of financing advances to MDM Bank.  The outlook
for all ratings is stable.

According to Moody's, the Ba2/Not Prime/D ratings are based on
the fundamental credit strength of MDM Bank, and do not
incorporate any potential support from the authorities in case
of need.  More specifically, the bank's ratings are underpinned
by four factors:

   -- a recognizable name, experienced personnel and relatively
      strong positions in corporate and investment banking
      especially with regard to mid-market companies;

   -- gradually improving corporate governance standards;

   -- prudent past strategy focusing on profitable segments
      rather on growth for the sake of growth; and

   -- a high capital adequacy ratio.  

At the same time the bank's ratings are constrained by these
factors:

   -- lack of certainty with regard to possible amendments to
      the bank's strategy following the change of CEO, which at
      the same time represents an opportunity for the bank to
      revisit its strategy that has resulted in somewhat slower
      growth compared with its peers over the last two years;

   -- stiffening competition that could exert further pressure
      on interest margins on which the bank's profitability is
      dependent;

   -- the high albeit reducing level of concentrations on both
      sides of the balance sheet;

   -- a level of provisions for loan impairment reflecting lower
      credit losses amid an improving economic environment that
      could be insufficient to absorb losses in the event of a
      negative swing in the economy; and

   -- reduced revenues from proprietary trading (on which the
      bank capitalized in the past) that are gradually being
      replaced with recurring earnings from new sources such as
      SME and retail banking, areas in which the bank is lagging
      behind some of its peers.

Headquartered in Moscow, Russian Federation, MDM Bank reported
total assets of US$4.23 billion under IFRS as of June 30, 2005.  
On a standalone basis (without subsidiaries), it ranked 11th
among Russian banks in terms of total assets as of Jan. 1, 2006.

TRANSCAPITALBANK: Moody's Rates Foreign Currency Deposit at B1
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has assigned these global scale
ratings with a stable outlook to Transcapitalbank:

   -- B1 long-term and Not-Prime short-term foreign
      currency deposit ratings; and

   -- an E+ financial strength rating.  

At the same time, Moody's Interfax Rating Agency has affirmed
the bank's A2.ru long-term national scale credit rating.  
Moscow-based Moody's Interfax is majority-owned by Moody's, a
leading global rating agency.

According to Moody's and Moody's Interfax, the B1/NP/E+ global
scale ratings reflect global default and loss expectation, while
the A2.ru national scale rating reflects the standing of the
bank's credit quality relative to its domestic peers.

The ratings assigned to TRB are underpinned primarily by the
bank's sound financial performance, notably good reported asset
quality, strong liquidity position and satisfactory
profitability.  Other positive rating drivers include a
customer-oriented approach enabling the bank to maintain close
relationships with key corporate clients and established
relationships with the European Bank for Reconstruction and
Development, which has provided financing for the bank's SME,
mortgage lending and documentary business programs.  However,
Moody's notes that TRB's franchise is undeveloped compared to
its peers, exerting downward pressure on the ratings.  

The bank's ratings are also constrained by:

   -- an unconfirmed ability to raise new capital to support
      growth under the current ownership;

   -- significant industry concentrations in the loan portfolio,
      with the trade sector making up approximately 50% of the
      total; and

   -- exposure to market risks due to a relatively large
      corporate securities portfolio.

According to Moody's, the B1/NP long-term foreign currency
deposit ratings do not incorporate any support in the event of
need from the bank's shareholders.  Moody's believes that such
support, as well as support from the Russian financial
authorities is unlikely.

                  About Transcapitalbank

Transcapitalbank was founded in 1992 mainly to service mainly
the branch of LUKOIL in the Perm region, located in the Urals
about 1400 kilometres east of Moscow.  Since its acquisition by
the new shareholders in 1999, the bank has significantly
expanded its customer base and territorial coverage, but has
also managed to retain strong positions in the Perm region.

TRB's branch network comprises five branches across the Russian
regions.  The bank reported total assets of US$384 million and
shareholders' equity of US$41 million in accordance with IFRS as
of Dec. 31, 2004.  According to Interfax, TRB ranked 69th in
terms of total assets and 76th in terms of capital among Russian
banks as at Dec. 31, 2005.

VIMPEL-COMMUNICATION: Moody's Lifts Bond Ratings to Ba3 From B1
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has changed the outlook on the ratings
of Open Joint Stock Company Vimpel-Communication (VimpelCom) and
upgraded the ratings on the existing bonds to Ba3 from B1.  The
corporate family rating remains unchanged at Ba3.

The change in outlook reflects:

   -- the company's continued robust financial and operational
      performance;

   -- VimpelCom's position as the second largest mobile operator
      in Russia and Kazakhstan;

   -- its retention of a strong market share in competitive
      environment; and

   -- conservative leverage relative to its cash flow with Total
      Debt to EBITDA at approximately 1.1x on an annualized Q3
      2005 basis.

At the same time the Ba3 rating takes into account:

   -- the company's publicly stated ambitions to pursue
      acquisitions in the CIS countries;

   -- continued high capital expenditure program;

   -- Moody's expectations of a rise in the absolute debt level
      to finance anticipated acquisitions;

   -- the increasing pressure on ARPU; and

   -- the competitive nature of the company's markets.

VimpelCom has publicly indicated its intentions to pursue
acquisitions in the CIS countries.  As a result, the company's
breakeven cash flow is shifted to 2007 versus the originally
expected 2006.  Moody's, however, expects VimpelCom to modestly
cover its organic capex (excluding any acquisitions) by
internally generated cash flow in 2006.  The Ba3 rating with a
positive outlook factors in recognition of the company's
continued positive trend and track record in strong operational
performance and credit metrics also tempered by possible event
risk associated with continued shareholder tensions.  The
positive outlook reflects expectations that the company will be
free cash flow positive (including anticipated acquisitions) in
2007.  The outlook does not take into account any potential
impact of 3G developments.

The change in outlook acknowledges VimpelCom's announced
proposal to acquire Kyivstar G.S.M.  JSC (please see Moody's
press-release dated Feb. 14, 2005) but does not factor in any
potential benefits and risks associated with it in the event the
acquisition is consummated.  However, the change in outlook
assumes that the acquisition will be financed by VimpelCom's
equity.  Furthermore, any assumption of Kyivstar debt by
VimpelCom will be within current debt levels at Kyivstar.  In
the event there are changes to the proposed financing, Moody's
will need to review them separately.

Moody's also notes a continued shareholder dispute between Alfa
Group (not rated) and Telenor ASA (A2 / Review for Possible
Downgrade).  So far, the dispute has not had a material impact
on VimpelCom's operations, although the Board of Directors has
not yet approved the proposed 2006 budget.  Moody's will
continue to monitor further developments in the shareholder
dispute with a view to continuing to assess its impact on
VimpelCom's strategic and operational development.

The upgrade of the ratings on the bonds reflects a material
reduction of secured debt in the company's capital structure
from over 20% to the expected 10% by the yearend 2005.  The Ba3
rating on the bonds relies on Moody's expectations that the
company will adhere to its financing policy to limit the amount
of secured debt in its capital structure to 15% of total debt
notwithstanding the fact that VimpelCom has the flexibility
under the indenture covenants to incur secured debt up to 10% of
total consolidated assets.  Furthermore, the rating on the bonds
does not factor in material structural subordination.

Headquartered in Moscow, Russia, VimpelCom is one of the
country's leading providers of mobile telecommunications
services, under the "Beeline" brand.  For the first nine months
2005, the company generated USD2.3 billion in revenue with a
50.1% OIBDA margin.

YUKOS OIL: Bank Lenders Want Moscow Court to Rule on Bankruptcy
---------------------------------------------------------------
A consortium of 14 bank lenders asked the Moscow Arbitration
Court on Friday, March 10, to declare Yukos Oil Company
bankrupt.

The filing came amid reports on an internal management rift
between the Moscow and London executives over questionable oil
deals.

According to reports, Claire Davidson, a London spokesperson for
the Company, said she was surprised by the banks' move given
that they are set to recover their claims in Netherlands.  

"Under Russian law they would be at the back of the list of
creditors, behind the employees and any tax liabilities, so you
have to ask why they have done this," Ms. Davidson told BBC
News.

The bank syndicate, which includes Societe Generale, Citibank,
Commerzbank, Credit Lyonnais, Deutsche Bank, HSBC and ING, are
seeking to recover US$482 million as repayment of the remainder
of a $1 billion syndicated loan that Yukos secured in September
2003.

Ms. Davidson said the court will now take around two weeks to
appoint a judge, who would hear the case in about three months,
Tom Miles of Reuters relates.

Tim Osborne, managing director of Yukos' main shareholder, Grupo
Menatep Ltd. fears that "the state will auction off all the
Company's remaining assets at whatever price the Kremlin sees
fit," Guy Chazan of The Wall Street Journal reports.

Headquartered in Moscow, Russia, Yukos Oil Company --
http://yukos.com/-- is an open joint stock company existing   
under the laws of the Russian Federation.  Yukos is involved in
the energy industry substantially through its ownership of its
various subsidiaries, which own or are otherwise entitled to
enjoy certain rights to oil and gas production, refining and
marketing assets.

The Company filed for Chapter 11 protection Dec. 14, 2004
(Bankr. S.D. Tex. Case No. 04-47742), but the case was dismissed
on Feb. 24, 2005, by the Hon. Letitia Z. Clark.  A few days
after, its main production unit Yugansk, was sold by the
government to a little-known firm Baikalfinansgroup for US$9.35
billion, as payment for US$27.5 billion in tax arrears for 2000-
2003.  Yugansk eventually was bought by state-owned Rosneft,
which is now claiming more than US$12 billion from Yukos.

SAEZ MERINO: Employees Protest Plan to Unwind Spanish Operations
----------------------------------------------------------------
Roughly 90% of the 800 workers of Saez Merino protested the
Company's plan to wind down its operations in Spain, Ivan
Castano writes for just-style.com.

According to the report, about 400 workers gathered in downtown
Valencia in support of the indefinite round of strikes, which
started on March 9.

The bankrupt jeans wear maker revealed plans to unwind its
Spanish production in order to restructure its commercial
network and logistics operations to survive the stinging
competition from Asian rivals, Mr. Castano reports.

"Given the situation they are in, it's very possible that they
want to dismiss many workers," Vicente Rodriguez, an official
with top trades union Comisiones Obreras told just-style.

"What we are asking for is that they emerge from bankruptcy -
with a sound business and financial plan - before we negotiate
any redundancies," he added.

Headquartered in Valencia, Spain, Saez Merino --
http://www.saezmerino.es/-- manufactures the Lois, Cimarron,  
Caster and Caroche brands.  In 2004, the company expected
financial losses after a fall in profits of more than 70% in
2003, to EUR2.47 million.  Parts of these losses were caused by
a 30% fall in exports to the U.S. market due to the strong euro.  
Saez Merino currently has a workforce of 950.  

The Company applied for insolvency proceedings on Feb. 1 citing
its inability to pay certain debts.

In September 2004, the textile group has shut down four of its
eight production plants in Spain leaving 542 workers jobless.

deficit.

The Group's net borrowings increased from GBP370.3 million for
2004, to GBP572.1 million in 2005.

Premier Foods PLC's Chief Executive Robert Schofield disclosed,
"2005 has seen another robust performance by our Grocery
business with our drive brands growing strongly and our
operating margins improving in line with our targets.  We have
invested heavily behind our brands, increasing our marketing
spend on our existing brand by GBP5 million, of which GBP3.5
million was spent in the final quarter of 2005 launching our new
Branston Beans."

"Furthermore, we have strengthened our brand portfolio through
the acquisitions of Bird's, Quorn and Cauldron and the sale of
our Tea business.  This has improved our growth prospects by
moving us into higher growth categories.  The integration of
these businesses has gone well and the brands have performed in
line with our expectations," he added.

Headquartered in Birmingham, England, Premier Foods --

RANK GROUP: Repurchases 675,000 Shares for Cancellation
-------------------------------------------------------
The Rank Group Plc purchased on March 10, 675,000 of the
Company's ordinary shares at 10 pence each for cancellation at
an average price of 231.13 pence per share.

Headquartered in London, Rank Group plc -- http://www.rank.com/
-- is an international leisure and entertainment company.  The
Group provides services to the film industry, including film
processing, video duplication and cinema exhibition.  The
Group's leisure and entertainment activities entail gambling
services, encompassing Mecca Bingo Clubs and Grosvenor Casinos,
and owned and franchises Hard Rock cafes.

                        *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company-Europe on March 8, Moody's
Investors Service assigned a Ba2 corporate family rating to The
Rank Group Plc (Rank) and concurrently downgraded the senior
unsecured long-term debt ratings of Rank Group Finance
Plc (guaranteed by The Rank Group Plc) to Ba2 (from Baa3).  

The rating action is prompted by Rank's announcement that it
will distribute GBP200 million to shareholders, following the
completion of the Deluxe Film's disposal as well as by the
group's weak operating performance in 2005.  The downgrade
reflects Moody's expectation that Rank's more limited business
scope and less diversified business profile combined with its
increased leverage will result in a considerably weakened
financial profile.  The rating action concludes a review
initiated on Dec. 7 2005.

At the same time, Fitch Ratings downgraded The Rank Group PLC's
Long-term Issuer Default rating and Senior Unsecured ratings to
BB- from BB+ and removed them from Rating Watch Negative.  A
Negative Outlook is assigned.  The Short-term rating is affirmed
at B.  The downgrade follows the disposal of its film processing
business, Deluxe Film, and confirmation of a return of capital
to shareholders announced in conjunction with its 2005
preliminary results.

In addition, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its
long- and short-term corporate credit ratings on U.K.-based
diversified leisure and entertainment company The Rank Group PLC
to 'BB-/B' from 'BBB-/A-3'.  S&P said the outlook is stable.

Each Tuesday edition of the TCR-Europe contains a list of
companies with insolvent balance sheets based on the latest
publicly available balance sheet available to our editors at the
time of publication.  At first glance, this list may look like
the definitive compilation of stocks that are ideal to sell
short.  Don't be fooled.  Assets, for example, reported at
historical cost net of depreciation may understate the true
value of a firm's assets.  A company may establish reserves on
its balance sheet for liabilities that may never materialize.  
The prices at which equity securities trade in public market are
determined by more than a balance sheet solvency test.
