BAWAG PSK: Agrees to Pay US$108 Million to Refco Investors
----------------------------------------------------------
Austrian bank BAWAG P.S.K. Group has agreed to settle with
institutional investors who are lead plaintiffs in an ongoing
securities fraud class action stemming from the bank's role in
the collapse of U.S. futures broker Refco Inc.

BAWAG's settlement comes as the bank agreed to a $675 million
global payment announced by the U.S. Attorney for the Southern
District of New York to resolve a federal investigation of BAWAG
for its part in the Refco scandal.

BAWAG has agreed to pay $108 million to Refco stock and bond
purchasers, with the possibility of an additional $32 million
depending on a possible future sale of the bank.  The payments
will settle investor claims arising from BAWAG's participation
in a scheme to conceal hundreds of millions of dollars in
related party receivables on Refco's balance sheet.  This scheme
enabled Refco to complete a $600 million bond offering in August
2004, and a $583 million IPO in August 2005, and caused
investors to pay excessive prices for Refco's securities in
subsequent open market transactions.

A week after reporting a previously undisclosed $430 million
debt by its former CEO Phillip Bennett, Refco filed for
bankruptcy last October 17 in the Southern District of New York.

Lead plaintiffs in the class action are:

   -- Pacific Investment Management Company LLC, a Refco bond
      purchaser, and

   -- RH Capital Associates LLC, an equity purchaser.

The investors are jointly represented by leading securities and
corporate governance law firms Grant & Eisenhofer, P.A. and
Bernstein Litowitz Berger & Grossmann LLP.

The plaintiffs have agreed that a portion of BAWAG's obligations
can be satisfied by payments received from a restitution fund
established by the U.S. Attorney for victims of the Refco fraud.
Under the agreement, BAWAG is obligated to pay the entire $108
million to the extent that payments from any restitution fund
fall short.  The settlement is subject to approval by Federal
Judge Gerard E. Lynch in New York, who is overseeing the Refco
securities litigation.

The settlement with BAWAG comes less than four months after lead
plaintiffs were appointed in February, a remarkably swift
resolution in a securities litigation.  In fact, defendants had
until July 10 to submit their motions to dismiss the case.

"We are very pleased with BAWAG's agreement to so quickly settle
claims arising from its part in the Refco debacle," said Grant &
Eisenhofer named partner Stuart M. Grant.  "This is a positive
first step in providing compensation to investors who were
scammed by Refco's management and directors, along with its
financial advisors, auditor and other professionals."

John P. Coffey of Bernstein Litowitz, added, "In addition to a
terrific monetary recovery, the settlement requires BAWAG to
cooperate fully with our ongoing prosecution against other
defendants.  This is already aiding our efforts in that regard."

Only months after Refco went public last fall, the company
collapsed when it was disclosed that Mr. Bennett had hidden a
$430 million loan from the company's books.  BAWAG's role in the
scandal became evident after reports that the bank gave Mr.
Bennett a $420 million loan just before the previously
unreported debts became public.  Mr. Bennett was indicted on
eight felony counts, including making false filings with the SEC
and conspiracy to commit securities fraud.

In addition to Mr. Bennett and Refco's former board of
directors, the remaining defendants in the securities class
action include:

   -- the company's former auditor Grant Thornton LLP;

   -- its majority owner private equity firm Thomas H. Lee
      Partners L.P.; and

   -- several investment banks that sold Refco securities to
      public investors, including Goldman Sachs, Credit Suisse
      and Bank of America.

In addition to Stuart Grant, co-lead counsel for plaintiffs
include James Sabella and Megan McIntyre of Grant & Eisenhofer,
and Max Berger and Sean Coffey of Bernstein Litowitz.

PROCREDIT BANK: Fitch Affirms Foreign Currency IDR at B+
--------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings affirmed Albania-based ProCredit Bank Sh.a.'s
foreign currency Issuer Default rating B+; Short-term foreign
currency B; local currency IDR BB-; Short-term local currency B;
Individual D/E; and Support 4.  The Outlook is Stable.

The IDR, Short-term and Support ratings of ProCredit bank is
based on Fitch's view of the potential support it is likely to
receive from its owners in case of need.  The ratings take into
account the centralized control and risk management by ProCredit
Holding and the bank's high degree of integration within the
ProCredit group.  

However, the potential support and hence the ratings are
constrained by the potential country risk of Albania.

ProCredit Holding is the largest shareholder in ProCredit
Albania with stake of some 33%. The ProCredit banks' other
shareholders consist of private and public investors.

The Individual rating of the bank reflects difficult local
operating environments.  In addition, the bank face rising
credit and potentially operational risk.  The bank capital ratio
is also set to remain under pressure in the medium term, due to
planned balance sheet growth.  However, the Individual rating
also take into account its good asset quality and effective risk
management to date.

Fitch notes that upward movement in the bank's Individual rating
could result from an improvement in its operating environment,
as well as an increase in critical mass, which, in turn, should
boost internal capital generation.

A sharp deterioration in capitalization could result in a
downgrade of the bank's Individual rating.

ProCredit Holding was set up in 1998 by a Frankfurt-based
consulting firm to invest in a global network of ProCredit
banks.  Private and public investors to provide financing to
micro- and SME customers established these banks.  The ProCredit
network consists of 19 banks in Eastern Europe, Latin America
and Africa.  At end-March 2006, the group's total assets were
EUR2.4 billion.  

ProCredit Holding's responsibilities include all major group
functions, including strategic decisions, risk management
controls and group supervision.  ProCredit Holding is not
regulated as a banking group.  However, the ProCredit banks are
regulated in their respective countries.

PROCREDIT BANK: Fitch Affirms Individual Rating at D/E
------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings affirmed Bosnia & Herzegovina-based ProCredit Bank
d.d.'s foreign currency IDR B; Short-term foreign currency B;
local currency IDR B+; Short-term local currency B; Individual
D/E; and Support 4.  The Outlook is Stable.

The IDR, Short-term and Support ratings of the bank are based on
Fitch's view of the potential support it is likely to receive
from its owners in case of need.  The ratings take into account
the centralized control and risk management by ProCredit Holding
and the bank's high degree of integration within the ProCredit
group.  

However, the potential support and hence the ratings are
constrained by the potential country risk of Bosnia &
Herzegovina.

ProCredit Holding is the largest shareholder in ProCredit Bosnia
& Herzegovina with stake of some 57%.  The ProCredit bank's
other shareholders consist of private and public investors.

The Individual rating of ProCredit BiH reflect its still small
size in absolute terms, large amount of shareholder funding, and
difficult local operating environments.  In addition, the bank
face rising credit and potentially operational risk.  The bank
capital ratio is also set to remain under pressure in the medium
term, due to planned balance sheet growth.

However, the Individual rating also takes into account the
bank's good asset quality and effective risk management to date.

Fitch notes the upward movement in the bank's Individual ratings
could result from an improvement in its operating environment,
as well as an increase in its critical mass, which, in turn,
should boost internal capital generation.

In the case of ProCredit BiH, further development of its funding
franchises would also be positive rating factor.  A sharp
deterioration in capitalization could result in a downgrade of
the bank's Individual rating.

ProCredit Holding was set up in 1998 by a Frankfurt-based

26.65% to 21.97%.

CF GOMMA: Silver Point & Pugliese Submit Rescue Offers
------------------------------------------------------
U.S. hedge fund Silver Point and Italian company Pugliese have
expressed interests in taking over CF Gomma Barre Thomas S.A.'s
Rennes Site, Les Echos says.

Silver Point is offering to provide:

   -- an immediate EUR60 million investment into the site; and
   -- EUR10 million annual investment until 2009.

On the other hand, Pugliese, which specializes in automobile
electronics, is offering to:

   -- provide an immediate EUR10 million investment for CF
      Gomma;

   -- inject EUR9 million into CF Gomma's Polish unit;

   -- retain 1,400 of CF Gomma's 1,9000 employees; and

   -- repay CF Gomma's EUR70 million debt within 10 years.

According to Les Echos, employees are favoring Silver Point's
offer, mainly due to the U.S. group's history of turning around
troubled companies.  The daily added that talks are reportedly
underway to diversify CF Gomma's client base.

Pugliese's top honcho Massimo Pugliese had claimed that his
company already struck a deal with CF Gomma's shareholders.  He
added that he is currently awaiting a decision from the
Commercial Court of Nantes over the agreement.

The Commercial Court of Nantes placed rubber car component
supplier CF Gomma Barre Thomas S.A. under receivership in
December 2005.  The company booked EUR1.3 million in losses in
the first half of 2005.  The company has been seeking to reduce
fixed costs by cutting jobs while looking for a buyer.

Headquartered in Rennes, France, CF Gomma Barre Thomas S.A. --
http://www.cfgomma.com/-- supplies rubber automotive parts to  
former parent PSA Peugeot-Citroen, which accounts 95% of its
sales.  


EUROTUNNEL GROUP: Clarifies Receipt of Alternative Plans
--------------------------------------------------------
Eurotunnel Group confirmed that it did not officially contacted
nor received any alternative restructuring plan from any other
financial institution as of June 4, 2006.

The binding agreement Eurotunnel signed with the Ad Hoc
Committee on May 23 and financed by the consortium, Goldman
Sachs, Barclays and Macquarie, envisages a reduction of the
initial debt, reducing it from GBP6.2 billion to GBP2.9 billion.  
The group stressed that any alternative solution should, in
terms of debt write off, have at least the same ambition.

According to press reports, Citigroup Inc. proposed an
alternative restructuring plan for Eurotunnel Group rivaling
that of Goldman Sachs and Macquarie Bank.  The proposal valued
Eurotunnel at approximately GBP4.5 billion.

                     Rebel Bondholders

Disgruntled bondholders, holding Eurotunnel's GBP1.9 billion of
lowest-ranking debts and advised by Close Brothers, alleged that
company chairman Jacques Gounon is trying to do a back-door sale
of the tunnel operator to Goldman Sachs and Macquarie Bank
without proper competitive process, Alistair Osborne writes for
The Telegraph.

According to Ingrid Mansell of The Times, Eurotunnel challenged
the rebel bondholders on Sunday to come up with an alternative
financial restructuring plan that would write off at least 53%
of the company's GBP6.2 billion debt.

Shareholders will convene on July 12 to vote on Mr. Gounon's
restructuring plan.

                     Other Clarifications

The Company clarified that the members of the Ad Hoc committee
signed a confidentiality agreement in August 2004 prior to
entering negotiations with the company.

Goldman Sachs, Macquarie and Barclays signed similar
confidentiality agreements in the light of the discussions,
which have led to the recently announced agreements.

The company also disclosed that none of the bond holders signed
a confidentiality agreement as a bond holder, notably due to the
fact that would lead to a ban on trading in the markets, for
both debt and equity.  

However, Close Brothers, advisors to some bondholders, signed a
confidentiality agreement on June 23, 2005, resulted in them
having permanent access to the Group's financial and operational
information.

                        About the Company

Headquartered in Folkestone, United Kingdom and Calais, France,
Eurotunnel Group -- http://www.eurotunnel.co.uk/-- operates a  
fleet of 25 shuttle trains, which carry cars, coaches and
trucks.  It manages the infrastructure of the Channel Tunnel and
receives toll revenues from train operating companies whose
trains pass through the Tunnel.

The British and French governments have granted Eurotunnel a
concession to operate the Channel Tunnel until 2086.

                        *     *     *

Eurotunnel's crisis began when costs to build the tunnels that
connect U.K. and France started to overrun before it opened in
1994.  The Iraq war followed, which didn't help as tourist
traffic fell.  In May 2004, Eurotunnel appointed Lazard (global
coordinator) and Lehman Brothers as bank advisors, and Dresdner
Kleinwort Wasserstein as restructuring adviser.

In July 2004, auditor KPMG Audit Plc said the company faces
uncertainty after 2005.  The firm's survival is dependent upon
its ability to put in place a refinancing plan or, if not, to
obtain an agreement with the lenders under the existing Credit
Agreement within the next two years, the auditor said.


SITRONICS FINANCE: Fitch Rates US$200 Million Bond at B-/R4
-----------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings assigned Sitronics Finance S.A.'s US$200 million
7.875% notes due 2009 a R4 recovery rating and affirmed the bond
at senior unsecured B-.  Concern Sitronics JSC unconditionally
and irrevocably guaranteed the notes.

The R4 rating is based on the bespoke analysis of the company's
asset base available to meet the claims of bondholders.  The
rating reflects average recovery prospects in the event of
default.  Recovery ratings for Russian corporates are capped at
R4.

Sitronics is the largest technology company in Russia and CIS
and a niche player in the world market.  It has four major
divisions: infocommunications, specializing in telecom equipment
and software; microelectronic components; consumer electronics
and IT.


TRAILOR SA: Court Rules on Supervised Six-Month Administration
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Commercial Court of Nancy placed Trailor S.A. under court-
supervised administration for six months, Les Echos reports.

Trailor filed for insolvency on June 1 due to financial
difficulties.  The group sold its Luneville plant to Azimuth in
April 2004 and had recently resumed in-house operations of
several businesses that had been subcontracted, Les Echos said.  

According to the daily, Trailor boasts of an expanded product
range and a well-filled order book.

Headquartered in Luneville, France, Trailor S.A. manufactures
semi-trailer cars.

FRESENIUS MEDICAL: Renal Care Subpoenaed on Stock Option Program
----------------------------------------------------------------
Renal Care Group, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Fresenius
Medical Care AG & Co. KgaA, has received a subpoena from the
United States Attorney's Office for the Southern District of New
York requesting documents relating to grants of stock options by
Renal Care Group during the period from when Renal Care Group
was formed in 1996 through the present.  

Fresenius Medical Care completed the acquisition of Renal Care
Group on March 31.

Based on Fresenius Medical Care's confidence in the management
of Renal Care Group, the Company believes that Renal Care
Group's option program was appropriately administered.  On
behalf of Renal Care Group, Fresenius Medical Care will
cooperate with the U.S. Attorney's office to resolve this matter
expeditiously.

Fresenius Medical Care AG -- http://www.fmc-ag.com/-- is the  
world's largest, integrated provider of products and services
for individuals undergoing dialysis because of chronic kidney
failure, a condition that affects more than 1,300,000
individuals worldwide.  Through its network of approximately
1,645 dialysis clinics in North America, Europe, Latin America,
Asia-Pacific and Africa, Fresenius Medical Care provides
dialysis treatment to approximately 128,200 patients around the
globe.  Fresenius Medical Care is also the world's leading
provider of dialysis products such as hemodialysis machines,
dialyzers and related disposable products.  Fresenius AG holds
approximately 37% of Fresenius Medical Care AG & Co. KgaA's
capital.

                        *     *     *

As reported in the TCR-Europe on April 5, Moody's Investors
Service affirmed all ratings of Fresenius AG and subsidiary
Fresenius Medical Care & Co KGaA.  Moody's also affirmed
Fresenius AG's:

   -- Corporate family rating of Ba2;
   -- EUR1 billion of senior notes rated Ba2; and
   -- EUR87.9 million of senior notes rated Ba2

Fresenius Medical Care & Co KgaA's:

   -- Corporate Family Rating of Ba2;
   -- Senior credit facility rated Ba2; and
   -- Trust Preferred securities rated B1.

As reported in the TCR-Europe on April 4, Standard & Poor's
Ratings Services assigned a BB' senior secured debt rating to
Fresenius Medical Care KGaA's US$4.6 billion facilities, which
were put in place to finance the acquisition of Renal Care Group
Inc. (RCG; BB-/Positive/--).

At the same time, Standard & Poor's lowered its long-term
corporate credit ratings on the Germany-based health-care
companies, FMC and its parent Fresenius AG to 'BB' from 'BB+',
following U.S. antitrust clearance for FMC's acquisition of
U.S.-based health-care company Renal Care.  The ratings were
removed from CreditWatch, where they were originally placed on
May 4, 2005.  S&P said the outlook is negative.

changed the Outlook on Fiat S.p.A.'s 'BB-' Senior Unsecured
rating to Stable from Negative.  The agency has at the same time
affirmed the Senior Unsecured and Short-term 'B' ratings.  EUR6
billion of debt is affected by this Rating action.  The Outlook
change is underpinned by early signs that the restructuring plan
is on track, the stabilization of Fiat Auto's market shares in
late 2005 and the successful resolution of a number of credit
issues.


PARMALAT SPA: Investors File Amended Complaint in New York Court
----------------------------------------------------------------
Lawyers leading a securities class action against Parmalat have
filed a fresh motion seeking permission to amend their complaint
to assert claims against Parmalat S.p.A., the entity that
recently emerged from Extraordinary Administration Proceedings,
akin to U.S. bankruptcy, in Italy.  

Until recently, the class plaintiffs were prevented from filing
claims against Parmalat Finanziaria and its subsidiaries and
affiliates, or Old Parmalat, due to a stay issued in the Italian
bankruptcy proceedings against all creditors, including class
plaintiffs, and also a preliminary injunction issued by the U.S.
bankruptcy court against all creditors and class plaintiffs.  
The newly filed complaint allows Parmalat investors who lost
billions of dollars in the dairy giant's fraud-soaked collapse
to seek claims against the company itself.

In October 2005, the court in Parma, Italy issued a decree
approving a "composition" or agreement with Old Parmalat's
creditors causing Parmalat S.p.A. to formally succeed Old
Parmalat and triggering the transfer of Old Parmalat's assets
and liabilities to New Parmalat.  Thus, unlike U.S. bankruptcy,
Parmalat S.p.A., or "New Parmalat" did not get a "fresh start"
with its pre-petition debts being discharged.  Rather, it
emerged with the assets and liabilities of its predecessor
companies that were not discharged in the Extraordinary
Administration.  

In its first official prospectus, New Parmalat recognized that
plaintiffs in the United States securities class action could
assert claims against it in the United States.  For these
reasons, lead plaintiffs moved for leave to assert federal
securities fraud claims against New Parmalat based on the
actions of Old Parmalat and its officers, directors, statutory
auditors and others prior to Extraordinary Administration.  

The amended complaint was filed in U.S. District Court for the
Southern District of New York.  Grant & Eisenhofer represents
Parmalat shareholders, including UK-based Hermes Focused Asset
Management Europe Ltd.  Law firm Cohen Milstein Hausfeld & Toll,
P.L.L.C. represents Parmalat's former bondholders.

"Our new filing is an important milestone in this case - for the
first time since the rapid implosion of Parmalat nearly three
years ago, investors have the opportunity and the right to seek
compensation from the company itself, an option that was not
available while Parmalat was in bankruptcy proceedings in
Italy," said Stuart Grant, name partner at Grant & Eisenhofer.

As alleged in the original securities fraud complaint, during
the Class Period - January 5, 1999 through December 18, 2003
(and thus prior to the Extraordinary Administration) - those
individuals, along with Old Parmalat's banks and accounting
firms, structured and participated in a panoply of fraudulent
schemes designed to hide Old Parmalat's growing debts to third
parties and artificially inflate its assets, revenues and
ultimately, the market prices of its securities.   

The scheme culminated in Old Parmalat's financial collapse when
it was revealed that the company's total consolidated debt had
been understated by nearly US$10 billion and its total net
assets (or shareholder equity) had been overstated by US$16.4
billion.  Parmalat, an international food and dairy company,
filed for bankruptcy in Italy in December 2003.

The amended complaint also contains new allegations against
accounting Grant Thornton LLP (which had previously been
dismissed from the case) showing that it controlled its U.S.
affiliate, defendant Grant Thornton International, which had
participated in the fraud.  Plaintiffs also amended their claims
against Credit Suisse First Boston (now known as Credit Suisse)
and added new claims against related entities Credit Suisse
First Boston International (now known as Credit Suisse
International), Credit Suisse First Boston (Europe) Limited (now
known as Credit Suisse Securities (Europe) Limited), and Credit
Suisse Group, for their direct participation in, or control of
entities that participated in, the fraud.

Action Complaint is available for free at

TURANALEM FINANCE: Fitch Rates US$250 Million Eurobond at BB+
-------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings placed TuranAlem Finance B.V.'s US$250 million
7.75% eurobond issue due April 2013 a final Long-term BB+
rating.  

The issue is guaranteed by Kazakhstan's Bank TuranAlem, rated
foreign currency Issuer Default BB+/Stable, local currency
Issuer Default BBB-/Stable, Short-term foreign currency B,
Short-term local currency F3, Individual C/D and Support 3.

The issue was made within the framework of BTA's and TAF's US$3
billion global medium-term note program, rated Long-term BB+ for
senior unsecured foreign currency notes with maturities in
excess of one year and Short-term B for senior unsecured foreign
currency notes with maturities of less than one year.  

BTA was the second largest commercial bank in Kazakhstan by IFRS
assets at end-2005, and has top three positions in all major
market segments.  The bank's common stock is owned primarily by
a number of Kazakh investors, but Raiffeisen Zentralbank, the
European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, the
International Finance Corporation and Nederlandse Financierings
- Maatschappij Voor Ontwikkelingslanden own convertible
preferred shares.

RUSSIAN STANDARD: Moody's Rates Loan Participation Notes at Ba2
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's has assigned a Ba2 rating to the USD350,000,000 8.625%
Loan Participation Notes due 2011 issued by Russian Standard
Finance S.A.

The Notes were issued by the SPV to fund a loan to the closed
joint stock company, Russian Standard Bank, a bank established
under the laws of the Russian Federation.  The SPV will account
to the Noteholders only for amounts equivalent to principal and
interest, if any, received from RSB under the Facility
Agreement.

The Ba2 rating of the Notes is based primarily on:

   -- the ability of RSB, the ultimate obligor in respect of
      payments under the Notes, to make timely payments of
      interest and ultimate payment of principal on the Loan;
      and

   -- the charge and assignment of rights and interests by the
      SPV to the Trustee for the benefit of Noteholders under
      English law.

According to Moody's, the Notes may become payable in the event
that RSB's rating is downgraded following a reorganization
event, such as a merger, accession, division, separation or
transformation.  As one of the financial covenants, RSB is
obliged to maintain -- unless such a requirement is waived -- a
ratio of capital to risk-weighted assets at a pre-specified
level inversely related to RSB's ratings.  

Moody's notes that, while the likelihood of any of the above
covenants being triggered is relatively low, any occurrence
could potentially have adverse liquidity implications for RSB
and might exert additional downward pressure on its ratings.

Russian Standard Finance S.A. is a special purpose company set
up in the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg for the purpose of issuing
loan participation notes.

   -- (P)Aaa to the GBP2,884,000,000 Class A Secured Floating
      Rate Notes due 2025;

   -- (P)Aa2 to the GBP206,500,000 Class B Secured Floating
      Rate Notes due 2025;

   -- (P)A2 to the GBP52,500,000 Class C Secured Floating Rate

      Notes due 2025; and

   -- (P)B2 to the GBP80,150,000 Class F Secured Floating Rate
      Notes due 2025.

Each class of notes may be issued in GBP, EUR and US$.  The
amounts mentioned above are the sterling equivalent of the
aggregate of each class of notes.  The final currency
composition will be decided upon closing.

The provisional ratings of the notes are based upon:

   -- An assessment of the credit quality of the underlying
      entities;

   -- The loss protection provided by the subordination of the
      more junior ranking classes of notes issued by Arran
      Corporate Loans No.1 B.V.;

   -- protection against losses furnished by the first loss
      (3.40 per cent), the excess spread (0.30 percent per
      annum) and the reserve account (up to GBP35,000,000); and

   -- The legal and structural integrity of the transaction.

Arran Corporate Loans No.1 B.V.  is a fully funded synthetic
transaction arranged by the Royal Bank of Scotland plc, in which
investors are exposed to the credit risk related to a portfolio
of loans extended by RBS to U.K. medium and large companies.  

The credit risk transferred by the Royal Bank of Scotland plc
through this transaction is related to a total portfolio of
GBP3.5 billion.  This reference pool is made up initially of 128
separate obligors.  Throughout the 12 month revolving period,
RBS can replenish the portfolio subject to satisfying certain
criteria.  


E-MAC: Fitch Assigns BB Rating to EUR2.2 Million Class E Notes
--------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings assigned final ratings to E-MAC NL 2006-II B.V.'s
EUR552.2 million floating-rate notes due 2039 as:

   -- EUR528 million Class A mortgage-backed notes: AAA;
   -- EUR8.8 million Class B mortgage-backed notes: AA-;
   -- EUR5.5 million Class C mortgage-backed notes: A-;
   -- EUR7.7 million Class D mortgage-backed notes: BBB-; and
   -- EUR2.2 million Class E: BB.

E-MAC NL 2006-II B.V. is a securitization of Dutch residential
mortgages originated by GMAC RFC Nederland, Atlas Funding B.V.
and Quion 20 B.V.  The servicers are Stater Nederland B.V. in
respect of the mortgage loans originated by GMAC and Atlas, and
Quion Hypotheekbemiddeling B.V. in respect of the ones
originated by Quion 20 B.V.; Stater and Quion are both well-
known third-party servicers in the Netherlands.  

The portfolio consists of first-ranking or first- and
sequentially lower-ranking fixed- and floating-rate mortgages
secured over residential properties located in the Netherlands.

The ratings are based on the quality of the collateral,
available credit enhancement and excess spread, a sound legal
structure, the underwriting and servicing of Stater and Quion,
the liquidity facility, the guaranteed investment contract in
place and the interest rate swap provided by ABN AMRO.

At closing, credit enhancement provided by subordination and the
reserve fund totals 4.4% for the Class A notes, 2.8% for the
Class B notes, 1.8% for the Class C notes and 0.4% for the Class
D notes.  At closing, the uncollateralized EUR2.2 million Class
E notes funds the balance of the reserve account equating to
0.4% of the balance of the A, B, C and D notes.  

The swap rates agreed under the reset swap agreements will be
such that, in respect of the loans the rate of which has been
reset, an excess margin of 35bps before the first put date and
20 bps thereafter will remain after payment of senior expenses
and interest due under the notes.


ROMPETROL GROUP: Eyes US$30 Million International Investment
------------------------------------------------------------
The Rompetrol Group intends to invest US$30 million in 2006 to
develop its international retail distribution network and the
wholesale depot infrastructure as part of its dynamic European
expansion.

"Starting from a Romanian brand well known for quality and
customer care, we've built a regional brand and we are now
concentrating on leveraging its value on a wider scale.  We are
the first multinational company of Romanian origin and our
playground has now expanded from the domestic market to the
entire Europe" TRG Chairman Dinu Patriciu said.

The ongoing integration of Dyneff Group in France and Spain
includes more than 200 company owned and franchised gas stations
and important storage capacities, with plans to build two new
locations in the Arzens area (Southern France).

Rompetrol Bulgaria will increase the number of gas stations by
10 units and will start construction of a 20,000 cm depot near
the capital city of Sofia.  Apart from developing this logistics
base for expansion operations in the region and to supply
products to other partners, the Company will develop its
distribution network by another 20 franchised gas stations.

An investment of about US$7 million is estimated for Albania to
build a Company owned product unloading facility in Porto
Romano, an important access point for the regional market, with
easy access to the Mediterranean Sea.  In addition to this
project the Company will acquire real estate for the
construction of a storage depot and plans to increase the total
number of Rompetrol stations to 20 in order to achieve national
coverage.

The Republic of Moldova distribution network will grow this year
by six units, while in Georgia, apart from the 15 gas stations
leased at the beginning of April (currently in the final re-
branding stage) another five stations will be opened in areas
where Rompetrol does not yet have a presence.

In the near future TRG intends to expand the Fill&Go service to
all international gas station locations, offering this
competitive car fleet management system to its global customers.

TRG's international distribution network development (retail and
wholesale) is also supported by investments of more than US$140
million that the Group planed for the next two years at
Rompetrol Rafinare (its main refining unit, Petromidia
refinery).  The focus will be on environment protection and
modernization projects aimed to increase processing capacity and
product quality, enabling Petromidia to consolidate its success
on the European market where the main competitors are major
international companies.

                      About the Company

PROCREDIT BANK: Fitch Maintains Foreign Currency IDR at BB-
-----------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings affirmed Serbia-based ProCredit Bank A.D.'s
foreign currency IDR BB-; Short-term foreign currency B; local
currency IDR BB; Short-term local currency B; Individual D/E;
and Support 3.  The Outlook is Stable.

The IDR, Short-term and Support ratings of the bank are based on
Fitch's view of the potential support it is likely to receive
from its owners in case of need.  The ratings take into account
the centralized control and risk management by ProCredit Holding
and the bank's high degree integration within the ProCredit
group.  

However, the potential support and hence the ratings are
constrained by the BB- Country Ceiling of Serbia.

ProCredit Holding is the largest shareholder in ProCredit Serbia
with stake of 53%.  The ProCredit bank's other shareholders
consist of private and public investors.

The Individual ratings of ProCredit Bank A.D. reflects its still
small size in absolute terms, large amount of shareholder
funding, and difficult local operating environment.  In
addition, the bank's capital ratio is also set to remain under
pressure in the medium term, due to planned balance sheet
growth.  However the Individual rating also take into account
the bank's good asset quality and effective risk management to
date.

Fitch notes that upward movement in the bank's Individual rating
could result from an improvement in its operating environment,
as well as an increase in its critical mass, which, in turn,
should boost internal capital generation.

In the case of ProCredit Serbia, further development of its
funding franchises would also be a positive rating factor.  A
sharp deterioration in capitalization could result in a
downgrade of the bank's Individual rating.

ProCredit Holding was set up in 1998 by a Frankfurt-based
consulting firm to invest in a global network of ProCredit
banks.  Private and public investors to provide financing to
micro- and SME customers established these banks.  The ProCredit
network consists of 19 banks in Eastern Europe, Latin America
and Africa.  At end-March 2006, the group's total assets were
EUR2.4 billion.  

ProCredit Holding's responsibilities include all major group
functions, including strategic decisions, risk management
controls and group supervision.  ProCredit Holding is not
regulated as a banking group.  However, the ProCredit banks are
regulated in their respective countries.

TRANSCREDIT BANK: S&P Revises Outlook to Positive
-------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services revised its outlook on
Russia-based TransCreditBank (TCB) to positive from stable. At
the same time, the 'B-/C' counterparty credit ratings were
affirmed.
     
"The outlook revision reflects the bank's strengthening
commercial and financial performance, as well as a likely change
in its ownership, which improve the potential for a future
upgrade," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Ekaterina
Trofimova.
     
The ratings on TCB reflect its weak capitalization; substantial
risk concentrations, in particular in the railway sector; and
the continued high operating and credit risks inherent in the
domestic banking environment. These negative factors are
partially offset by the bank's continued strong strategic and
operational links with Russian Railways (JSC) (RZD; BBB-
/Stable/--), which is the 100% state-owned operator of Russian
railroad infrastructure and the dominant freight and passenger
rail carrier. TCB is the main settlement bank for RZD and its
related companies, which represent 30% of the bank's loans and
liabilities.

Russia's Federal Agency for Management of the Federal Property
took majority control of TCB in February 2003. Currently,
however, the government is considering contributing 75% of the
bank's shares to the equity of RZD. The outcome and timing of
this transfer are uncertain, though, as final approvals by the
government and the president of the Russian Federation are still
pending.
     
"If RZD takes a majority ownership in TCB, the ratings on the
bank will be revised upwards," said Ms. Trofimova.  "The extent
of the resulting rating increase will depend on our assessment
of RZD's support, strategic involvement, and commitment to the
bank."
     
Importantly, the ownership change would remove legal constraints
on the bank's capitalization, as equity injections are not
possible now and would be possible after the change.
     
If the currently discussed share transfer is cancelled or faces
substantial delays, room for an upgrade still remains, depending
on the bank's ability to show sustainable progress in its
financial and commercial performance. A failure to achieve this
progress, higher risk concentrations, or a tighter capital
position could cause the outlook to revert to stable.

Following the disposal, 50,766,217 Ordinary Shares are held

Harris Jones (all being directors of Cable and Wireless plc), in
their capacity as members of the class of beneficiaries under

well as services to other telecoms carriers, mobile operators

Its principal operations are in the United Kingdom, continental
Europe, Asia, the Caribbean, Panama and the Middle East.

Fitch Ratings has affirmed Cable & Wireless' ratings at Long-
term 'BB+' with Stable Outlook and Short-term 'B'.

                        *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Europe on March 3,
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that the ratings and
outlook on U.K.-based telecommunications operator Cable &
Wireless PLC (C&W; BB-/Negative/B) were unchanged following the
group's presentation of plans for further restructuring and
refocusing of its U.K. business.

C&W is replicating the broadly successful business model of
Energis, the U.K. telecoms services company that it acquired in
November 2005.  It has announced a withdrawal from the low-
margin U.K. small-to-midsized business market and a focus on
large U.K. corporate customers.  Given this streamlining of the
customer and product base, employee numbers could reduce by up
to 3,000, resulting in additional headcount reduction and lease
exit costs.  The group is to continue investing in Bulldog, its
early stage, and largely residential, local-loop-access
operation.

The provisional ratings of the notes are based upon:

   -- The loss protection provided by the subordination, if any,
      of the more junior ranking classes of notes issued by CoCo
      Finance 2006-1 PLC;

      amount (2.04 percent); and

EUROTUNNEL GROUP: Clarifies Receipt of Alternative Plans
--------------------------------------------------------
Eurotunnel Group confirmed that it did not officially contacted
nor received any alternative restructuring plan from any other
financial institution as of June 4, 2006.

The binding agreement Eurotunnel signed with the Ad Hoc
Committee on May 23 and financed by the consortium, Goldman
Sachs, Barclays and Macquarie, envisages a reduction of the
initial debt, reducing it from GBP6.2 billion to GBP2.9 billion.  
The group stressed that any alternative solution should, in
terms of debt write off, have at least the same ambition.

According to press reports, Citigroup Inc. proposed an
alternative restructuring plan for Eurotunnel Group rivaling
that of Goldman Sachs and Macquarie Bank.  The proposal valued
Eurotunnel at approximately GBP4.5 billion.

                     Rebel Bondholders

Disgruntled bondholders, holding Eurotunnel's GBP1.9 billion of
lowest-ranking debts and advised by Close Brothers, alleged that
company chairman Jacques Gounon is trying to do a back-door sale
of the tunnel operator to Goldman Sachs and Macquarie Bank
without proper competitive process, Alistair Osborne writes for
The Telegraph.

According to Ingrid Mansell of The Times, Eurotunnel challenged
the rebel bondholders on Sunday to come up with an alternative
financial restructuring plan that would write off at least 53%
of the company's GBP6.2 billion debt.

Shareholders will convene on July 12 to vote on Mr. Gounon's
restructuring plan.

                     Other Clarifications

The Company clarified that the members of the Ad Hoc committee
signed a confidentiality agreement in August 2004 prior to
entering negotiations with the company.

Goldman Sachs, Macquarie and Barclays signed similar
confidentiality agreements in the light of the discussions,
which have led to the recently announced agreements.

The company also disclosed that none of the bond holders signed
a confidentiality agreement as a bond holder, notably due to the
fact that would lead to a ban on trading in the markets, for
both debt and equity.  

However, Close Brothers, advisors to some bondholders, signed a
confidentiality agreement on June 23, 2005, resulted in them
having permanent access to the Group's financial and operational
information.

                        About the Company

Headquartered in Folkestone, United Kingdom and Calais, France,
Eurotunnel Group -- http://www.eurotunnel.co.uk/-- operates a  
fleet of 25 shuttle trains, which carry cars, coaches and
trucks.  It manages the infrastructure of the Channel Tunnel and
receives toll revenues from train operating companies whose
trains pass through the Tunnel.

The British and French governments have granted Eurotunnel a
concession to operate the Channel Tunnel until 2086.

                        *     *     *

Eurotunnel's crisis began when costs to build the tunnels that
connect U.K. and France started to overrun before it opened in
1994.  The Iraq war followed, which didn't help as tourist
traffic fell.  In May 2004, Eurotunnel appointed Lazard (global
coordinator) and Lehman Brothers as bank advisors, and Dresdner
Kleinwort Wasserstein as restructuring adviser.

In July 2004, auditor KPMG Audit Plc said the company faces
uncertainty after 2005.  The firm's survival is dependent upon
its ability to put in place a refinancing plan or, if not, to
obtain an agreement with the lenders under the existing Credit
Agreement within the next two years, the auditor said.

NEWGATE FUNDING: Moody's Assigns Provisional Ratings to RMBS
------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has assigned these provisional ratings
to eight classes of residential mortgage backed notes issued by
Newgate Funding PLC:

   -- (P)Aaa to the Class A1 Mortgage Backed Floating Rate Notes
      (with Detachable Coupons) due December 2050;

   -- (P)Aaa to the Class A2 Mortgage Backed Floating Rate Notes
      (with Detachable Coupons) due December 2050;

   -- (P)Aaa to the Class A3 Mortgage Backed Floating Rate Notes
      (with Detachable Coupons) due December 2050;

   -- (P)Aa1 to the Class M Mortgage Backed Floating Rate Notes
      due December 2050;

   -- (P)Aa3 to the Class B Mortgage Backed Floating Rate Notes
      due December 2050;

   -- (P)A3 to the Class C Mortgage Backed Floating Rate Notes
      due December 2050;

   -- P)Baa3 to the Class D Mortgage Backed Floating Rate Notes
      due December 2050; and

   -- (P)Ba2 to the Class E Mortgage Backed Floating Rate Notes
      due December 2050.

The Class T and Class Q Notes are not rated by Moody's.  All
Classes of Notes -- except for Class E, T and Q which will be
issued in British Pound Sterling only -- may be issued in
British Pound Sterling and Euros.

Investors in the Class A Detachable Coupons do not receive any
payments of principal, and will be paid interest at a rate of
[0.75]% per annum.  For quarters one to four, increased to
[1.00]% per annum.  In quarters five to eight and further
increased to [1.25]% per annum.  In quarters nine to 12,
calculated on the sterling equivalent of the outstanding balance
of the Class A1, A2 and A3 Notes.

The Issuer, Newgate Funding plc, is a special purpose vehicle
incorporated in England and Wales, which is ultimately owned by
a charitable trust.  The Issuer is a multi-issuance vehicle and
this transaction represents the second series to be issued under
its MTN style Programme.  The Issuer will fund the purchase
price of the series mortgage portfolio using the proceeds of the
Notes.  A portion of the proceeds of the DACs, MERCs, Series
Residuals and Class T and Q Notes will be used to fund the
balance of the reserve fund, the discount reserve fund, costs
and the expenses associated with issuing the Notes.

This transaction is the ninth securitization of non-conforming
and impaired credit mortgage loans originated by entities
belonging to the Mortgages Group trading under the name of
"Mortgages PLC".  

As in the prior Mortgages plc securization, the assets
supporting the Notes are sub-prime and non-conforming first
residential mortgage loans originated by entities trading under
the name of Mortgages PLC and secured on residential properties
in England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland.  A part of
underlying loan portfolio (approximately 53%) consists of loans
to borrowers classified by the originator as "near prime" or
"near prime plus", with stricter criteria for adverse credit
compared to non-conforming mortgage loans.  Mortgages PLC will
be responsible for the day-to-day servicing of the loans,
handling arrears cases and approving further advances and
product conversions.

The ratings of the Notes are based upon an analysis of the
characteristics of the mortgage pool backing the Notes, the
protection the Notes receive from credit enhancement against
defaults and arrears in the mortgage pool, and the legal and
structural integrity of the issue.  

The credit enhancement available in the deal is provided in the
form of excess spread, reserve fund fully funded at:

   -- [1.3]% of the original note,
   -- subordination of the Class M [2.51]%,
   -- Class B [6.07%],
   -- Class C [3.80%],
   -- Class D [2.85%], and
   -- Class E [0.46%] Notes.  

The Class A1 Notes represent [32.00%], the Class A2 Notes
represent [9.51%] and the Class A3 Notes represent [42.80%]).  
Subject to certain conditions being met, the reserve fund may
amortize up to a floor of [0.50%] of the original note balance.  

The notes will be issued for the sole purpose of funding a
subordinated loan to joint-stock commercial bank "Moscow
Business World" (known as MDM Bank), rated at Ba2/NP (stable
outlook) for long- and short-term foreign currency bank
deposits, with a D Financial Strength Rating (FSR).  MDM
International Funding Plc's claim on the bank under the
subordinated loan agreement will rank behind that of the senior
creditors but at least pari passu with claims of other
subordinated creditors of the bank and senior to the claims of
the bank's junior creditors and shareholders.  The legal
maturity of the notes will be five years, while the exact amount
is not yet known.

According to Moody's, the Ba3 rating (stable outlook) is based
on the fundamental credit quality of the underlying obligor (MDM
Bank).  It does not incorporate any potential support from the
authorities in case of need, and reflects higher expected loss
in the event of default stemming from the subordinated nature of
the underlying loan.
Moody's also notes that, according to the terms of the
subordinated loan agreement, MDM Bank will have to comply with a
number of covenants such as a negative pledge, and a limitation
on mergers, disposals and transactions with affiliates.

REFCO INC: Investors Settle Claims v. BAWAG for US$108 Million
--------------------------------------------------------------
Austrian bank BAWAG P.S.K. Group has agreed to settle with
institutional investors who are lead plaintiffs in an ongoing
securities fraud class action stemming from the bank's role in
the collapse of U.S. futures broker Refco Inc.

BAWAG's settlement comes as the bank agreed to a $675 million
global payment announced by the U.S. Attorney for the Southern
District of New York to resolve a federal investigation of BAWAG
for its part in the Refco scandal.

BAWAG has agreed to pay $108 million to Refco stock and bond
purchasers, with the possibility of an additional $32 million
depending on a possible future sale of the bank.  The payments
will settle investor claims arising from BAWAG's participation
in a scheme to conceal hundreds of millions of dollars in
related party receivables on Refco's balance sheet.  This scheme
enabled Refco to complete a $600 million bond offering in August
2004, and a $583 million IPO in August 2005, and caused
investors to pay excessive prices for Refco's securities in
subsequent open market transactions.

A week after reporting a previously undisclosed $430 million
debt by its former CEO Phillip Bennett, Refco filed for
bankruptcy last October 17 in the Southern District of New York.

Lead plaintiffs in the class action are:

   -- Pacific Investment Management Company LLC, a Refco bond
      purchaser, and

   -- RH Capital Associates LLC, an equity purchaser.

The investors are jointly represented by leading securities and
corporate governance law firms Grant & Eisenhofer, P.A. and
Bernstein Litowitz Berger & Grossmann LLP.

The plaintiffs have agreed that a portion of BAWAG's obligations
can be satisfied by payments received from a restitution fund
established by the U.S. Attorney for victims of the Refco fraud.
Under the agreement, BAWAG is obligated to pay the entire $108
million to the extent that payments from any restitution fund
fall short.  The settlement is subject to approval by Federal
Judge Gerard E. Lynch in New York, who is overseeing the Refco
securities litigation.

The settlement with BAWAG comes less than four months after lead
plaintiffs were appointed in February, a remarkably swift
resolution in a securities litigation.  In fact, defendants had
until July 10 to submit their motions to dismiss the case.

"We are very pleased with BAWAG's agreement to so quickly settle
claims arising from its part in the Refco debacle," said Grant &
Eisenhofer named partner Stuart M. Grant.  "This is a positive
first step in providing compensation to investors who were
scammed by Refco's management and directors, along with its
financial advisors, auditor and other professionals."

John P. Coffey of Bernstein Litowitz, added, "In addition to a
terrific monetary recovery, the settlement requires BAWAG to
cooperate fully with our ongoing prosecution against other
defendants.  This is already aiding our efforts in that regard."

Only months after Refco went public last fall, the company
collapsed when it was disclosed that Mr. Bennett had hidden a
$430 million loan from the company's books.  BAWAG's role in the
scandal became evident after reports that the bank gave Mr.
Bennett a $420 million loan just before the previously
unreported debts became public.  Mr. Bennett was indicted on
eight felony counts, including making false filings with the SEC
and conspiracy to commit securities fraud.

In addition to Mr. Bennett and Refco's former board of
directors, the remaining defendants in the securities class
action include:

   -- the company's former auditor Grant Thornton LLP;

   -- its majority owner private equity firm Thomas H. Lee
      Partners L.P.; and

   -- several investment banks that sold Refco securities to
      public investors, including Goldman Sachs, Credit Suisse
      and Bank of America.

In addition to Stuart Grant, co-lead counsel for plaintiffs
include James Sabella and Megan McIntyre of Grant & Eisenhofer,
and Max Berger and Sean Coffey of Bernstein Litowitz.

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.
