GALVEX HOLDINGS: Wants Chapter 11 Cases Dismissed or Converted
--------------------------------------------------------------
Galvex Holdings Limited asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of New York to dismiss its chapter 11 case or,
in the alternative, convert its case to a chapter 7 liquidation
proceeding.

Lori R. Fife, Esq., at Weil, Gotshal & Manges, LLP, relates that
Galvex is "hopelessly" insolvent, has no assets remaining to
reorganize or sell, and has no ability to file and confirm a
plan of liquidation or pay any administrative expenses.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on May 30, 2006,
the Court authorized Galvex and its debtor-affiliates to sell
substantially all of their assets to SPCP Group LLC.  The
purchase was effected in exchange for the discharge of the
Debtors' US$192 million debt to SPCP.  SPCP acquired the shares
of Galvex's subsidiaries:

           -- Galvex Estonia;
           -- Galvex Intertrade; and
           -- Galvex Trade.

In accordance with the sale order, the Court further ruled that
the Chapter 11 cases of the three debtor-subsidiaries will be
dismissed effective upon the closing of the sale.

The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors supports Galvex's
request only to the extent that the Motion seeks conversion of
the Debtor's case to a case under chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy
Code.

                     About Galvex Holdings

Headquartered in New York City, New York, Galvex Holdings
Limited -- http://www.galvex.com/-- and its affiliates operate  
the largest independent galvanizing line in Europe.  The Debtors
have offices in New York, Tallinn, Bermuda, Finland, Ukraine,

(Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Lead Case No. 06-10082).  Galvex Capital, LLC,
is represented by David Neier, Esq., at Winston & Strawn LLP,

RADNOR HOLDINGS: Organizational Meeting Scheduled Tomorrow
----------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Trustee for Region 3 will hold an organizational
meeting to appoint an official committee of unsecured creditors
in Radnor Holdings Corporation and its debtor-affiliates'
chapter 11 cases at 10:00 a.m., on Aug. 30, 2006, at Room 5209,
J. Caleb Boggs Federal Building, 844 King Street in Wilmington,
Delaware.

The sole purpose of the meeting will be to form a committee or
committees of unsecured creditors in the Debtors' cases.  The
meeting is not the meeting of creditors pursuant to Section 341
of the Bankruptcy Code.  However, a representative of the
Debtors will attend and provide background information regarding
the cases.

Creditors interested in serving on a Committee should complete
and return to the U.S. Trustee a statement indicating their
willingness to serve on an official committee.

Official creditors' committees, constituted under Section 1102
of the Bankruptcy Code, ordinarily consist of the seven largest
creditors who are willing to serve on a committee.  In some
Chapter 11 cases, the U.S. Trustee is persuaded to appoint
multiple creditors' committees.

Official creditors' committees have the right to employ legal
and accounting professionals and financial advisors, at the
Debtors' expense.  They may investigate the Debtors' business
and financial affairs.  Importantly, official committees serve
as fiduciaries to the general population of creditors they
represent.  Those committees will also attempt to negotiate the
terms of a consensual Chapter 11 plan -- almost always subject
to the terms of strict confidentiality agreements with the
Debtors and other core parties-in-interest.  If negotiations
break down, the Committee may ask the Bankruptcy Court to
replace management with an independent trustee.  If the
Committee concludes that the reorganization of the Debtors is
impossible, the Committee will urge the Bankruptcy Court to
convert the Chapter 11 cases to a liquidation proceeding.

Headquartered in Radnor, Pennsylvania, Radnor Holdings
Corporation -- http://www.radnorholdings.com/-- manufactures  
and distributes a broad line of disposable food service products
in the United States, and specialty chemicals worldwide.  The
Debtor and its affiliates filed for chapter 11 protection on
Aug. 21, 2006 (Bankr. D. Del. Case No. 06-10894).  Gregg M.
Galardi, Esq., and Mark L. Desgrosseilliers, Esq., at Skadden,
Arps, Slate, Meagher, represent the Debtors.  When the Debtors
filed for protection from their creditors, they listed total
assets of US$361,454,000 and total debts of US$325,300,000.

VOLKSWAGEN AG: Mexican Employees Agree to Improved Wage Offer
-------------------------------------------------------------
A five-day strike at Volkswagen AG's Mexican plant ended after
the European carmaker agreed to an improved wage and benefits
offer for its workers.

About 9,600 unionized workers at the company's assembly plant in
Puebla went on strike Aug. 18 after rejecting a 4% wage
increase and a 0.5% increase in food coupons.  The workers
wanted an 8.5% wage increase.

The two parties reached an agreement last week for a 4% direct
wage increase and 1.5% in additional benefits in the form of
groceries vouchers.

The Associated Press said work at Volkswagen's plant resumed
late Wednesday.  The plant makes about 1,400 cars daily.

Headquartered in Wolfsburg, Germany, the Volkswagen Group
-- http://www.volkswagen.de/-- is one of the world's leading  
automobile manufacturers and the largest carmaker in Europe.
With 47 production plants in eleven European countries and a
further seven countries in the Americas, Asia and Africa,
Volkswagen has more than 343,000 employees producing over 21,500
vehicles or are involved in vehicle-related services on every
working day.

                        *    *    *

Volkswagen has been carrying out measures to cut costs and raise
profits, which could affect up to 30,000 jobs.  The potential
job cuts represent about a third of the carmaker's workforce and
three times higher than initial estimates made by Chief
Executive Bernd Pischetsrieder and Volkswagen brand head,
Wolfgang Bernhard.

In November 2005, Volkswagen maintained its 2005 earnings
guidance amid rumors it may lower targets.  The company predicts
a year-on-year improvement in both operating profit after
special items and profit before tax this year.  Rumors flew that
the company would slash full-year earnings forecast due to
higher restructuring costs.  The company said the impact of its
workforce reduction measures, which will be charged as special
items in the fourth quarter, will be lower than last year's.

The company also admitted there were no significant improvements
in the economic environment in the first nine months of 2005,
and the overall situation in the important automotive markets
remained difficult.  It also expected tougher competition in the
Chinese and U.S. markets, and the rise in fuel prices to
influence consumer confidence.

TOWER RECORDS: Organizational Meeting Set at 10:00 a.m. Today
-------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Trustee for Region 3 will hold an organizational
meeting to appoint an official committee of unsecured creditors
in MTS, Inc., dba Tower Records' and its debtor-affiliates'
chapter 11 cases at 10:00 a.m., tomorrow, Aug. 29, 2006, at Room
5209, J. Caleb Boggs Federal Building, 844 King Street in
Wilmington, Delaware.

The sole purpose of the meeting will be to form a committee or
committees of unsecured creditors in the Debtors' cases.  The
meeting is not the meeting of creditors pursuant to Section 341
of the Bankruptcy Code.  However, a representative of the
Debtors will attend and provide background information regarding
the cases.

Creditors interested in serving on a Committee should complete
and return to the U.S. Trustee a statement indicating their
willingness to serve on an official committee.

Official creditors' committees, constituted under Section 1102
of the Bankruptcy Code, ordinarily consist of the seven largest
creditors who are willing to serve on a committee.  In some
Chapter 11 cases, the U.S. Trustee is persuaded to appoint
multiple creditors' committees.

Official creditors' committees have the right to employ legal
and accounting professionals and financial advisors, at the
Debtors' expense.  They may investigate the Debtors' business
and financial affairs.  Importantly, official committees serve
as fiduciaries to the general population of creditors they
represent.  Those committees will also attempt to negotiate the
terms of a consensual Chapter 11 plan -- almost always subject
to the terms of strict confidentiality agreements with the
Debtors and other core parties-in-interest.  If negotiations
break down, the Committee may ask the Bankruptcy Court to
replace management with an independent trustee.  If the
Committee concludes that the reorganization of the Debtors is
impossible, the Committee will urge the Bankruptcy Court to
convert the Chapter 11 cases to a liquidation proceeding.

Headquartered in West Sacramento, California, MTS, Inc., dba
Tower Records -- http://www.towerrecords.com/-- is a retailer  
of music in the U.S., with nearly 100 company-owned music, book,
and video stores.  The Company and seven of its affiliates filed
for chapter 11 protection on Aug. 20, 2006 (Bankr. D. Del. Case
Nos. 06-10886 through 06-10893).  Mark D. Collins, Esq., at
Richards Layton & Finger, represents the Debtors.  When the
Debtors filed for protection from their creditors, they
estimated assets and debts of more than US$100 million.

The Company and its affiliates previously filed for chapter 11
protection on Feb. 9, 2004 (Bankr. D. Del. Lead Case No.
04-10394).

PYATEROCHKA HOLDING: Merger Prompts Moody's to Cut Rating to B1
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded the corporate family rating
of Pyaterochka Holding N.V. to B1 from Ba3.   The outlook for
the rating is stable.   At the same time, Moody's Interfax
Rating Agency, which is majority owned by Moody's, has
downgraded Pyaterochka's national scale rating to A1.ru from
Aa3.ru.   

The rating action concludes the review for possible downgrade
initiated on April 13 following the company's announcement of
its merger with Perekriostok Holdings Limited, Russia's leading
supermarket chain.

Moody's said that the rating downgrade primarily reflects the
increase in debt of the combined entity as compared to
Pyaterochka's pre-merger metrics, and the expectation that the
financial profile of the combined company will maintain similar
leverage levels for the foreseeable rating horizon.   

Over the next two years, fully adjusted Debt/EBITDA is likely to
exceed 4x, while RCF/Net Debt and EBITA/Interest are expected to
be below 20% and 2.5, respectively (all ratios being adjusted as
per Moody's globally used standard adjustments), with a
strengthening of these metrics largely driven by expected
organic growth, the absence of dividend payments and achievement
of free cash flows to reduce group leverage.   Given the
emerging operating environment for Pyaterochka, Moody's has also
factored in a certain vulnerability of this expected recovery of
the financial profile.

The rating action also takes into consideration the positive
impact of the merger on the company's business profile, notably:

   -- market leadership in a still fragmented market, with
strong positions in Moscow and St. Petersburg;

   -- the increased customer coverage with its dual-format
strategy in the food discount and supermarket segments;
and

   -- the combined entity's improved ability to capture growth
opportunities in Russia's fast growing food retail market.

In addition, the rating action takes into consideration the
company history of strong & consistently growing cash flows.
However, for the foreseeable rating horizon, these positive
considerations are outweighed by the higher debt levels and the
effect on the financial profile.

The outlook for the rating is stable as Moody's anticipates that
the company will be able to benefit from its strengthened
franchise as the largest food retailer with both discount and
supermarket business lines in the Russian market, convert its
large investment program into rapidly growing operating cash
flow and significantly improve financial profile within a three-
year period, with Debt/EBITDA to be down from its 2006 peak to
markedly below 4x in 2009.   

Moody's takes into account the management's declared commitment
to largely de-leverage the merged company, starting from 2007,
mainly by not paying dividends for the foreseeable future.

Failure to de-leverage the business starting from 2007 may put
pressure on the company's ratings.   On the other hand
improvements in the financial profile, with the latter getting
closer to the pre-merger level ahead of the projections, is
likely to positively influence the ratings.

Headquartered in the Netherlands, Pyaterochka Holding N.V. is
the leading two-format Russian food retailer operating a large
store network largely covering the Moscow region and
St. Petersburg but also with a good presence in other Russian
regions.  The post-merger Pyaterochka's pro forma 2005 net
revenues were US$2.4 billion.

STATE EXPORT-IMPORT: Fitch Rates US$300 Mln Eurobond at BB-
-----------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings assigned Credit Suisse International's upcoming
US$300 million issue of limited recourse loan participation
notes an expected Long-term rating of BB-.  The notes are to be
used solely for financing a loan to The State Export-Import Bank
of Ukraine ("Ukreximbank", Issuer Default BB-/Stable Outlook,
Short-term B, Support 3, Individual D/E, National Long-term
AA/Stable Outlook) under a loan agreement.  The final rating is
contingent on receipt of final documentation conforming
materially to information already received.

CSi will only pay noteholders amounts, if any, received from
Ukreximbank under the loan agreement.  Noteholders' claims will
rank at least pari passu with the claims of other senior
unsecured creditors of Ukreximbank, save those preferred by
relevant laws.  Under Ukrainian law, the claims of retail
depositors rank above those of other senior unsecured creditors.
At end-H106, retail depositors accounted for 18.5% of
Ukreximbank's total liabilities, according to the bank's IFRS
accounts reviewed by auditors.

The loan agreement contains covenants restricting mergers and
disposals by Ukreximbank and its subsidiaries as well as
transactions between the bank and its subsidiaries.  It also
contains a 'negative pledge' clause, which allows for a certain
degree of securitization by Ukreximbank and its subsidiaries.
Were such transactions to be undertaken, Fitch comments that the
nature and extent of any over-collateralization would be
assessed by the agency for any potential impact on unsecured
creditors.

In addition, the loan agreement contains a 'change of control',
clause which provides noteholders with a put option should the
Ukrainian state cease to control the bank's activities or
publicly announce its intention to do this.

Ukreximbank's Issuer Default, Short-term and Support ratings are
driven by what Fitch views as a moderate probability of support
from the Ukrainian government in case of need.  The Ukrainian
state (rated BB-/Stable Outlook) is the bank's sole shareholder
and Ukreximbank is the only Ukrainian bank that acts as a
financial agent for international loans, which are originated,
borrowed or guaranteed by the state.  Fitch also notes that
successive Ukrainian governments have issued public letters of
support to the bank, although the government has changed since
the last such letter, of January 2006, was signed.

Ukreximbank was founded in 1992 and was the fifth largest
Ukrainian bank by assets at end-H106.  The bank's principal
franchise lies in serving corporate customers and their
workforce.


STATUS: Lugansk Court Names S. Ptushko as Insolvency Manager

UKREXIMBANK: Moody's Rates Loan Participation Notes at Ba2
----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a rating of Ba2 to Loan
Participation Notes to be issued on a limited recourse basis by
Credit Suisse International for the sole purpose of funding a
loan to Ukreximbank.   The outlook for the rating is stable.

The holders of the notes will be relying for repayment solely
and exclusively on the ability of Ukreximbank to make payments
under the loan agreement.   Moody's Ba2 rating is based on the
fundamental credit quality of Ukreximbank, a wholly state-owned
bank which, as well as acting as government agent, is engaged in
commercial banking activities and ranked fifth-largest bank in
Ukraine in terms of total assets as at June 30, 2006.

The rating also reflects the probability of a sovereign default
implied by Ukraine's B1 (stable outlook) foreign currency bond
rating, and the likelihood that in the event of default the
Ukrainian government could impose a debt moratorium on its own
foreign currency obligations.

The rating also addresses the risk that such a moratorium might
include foreign currency loans and that these notes in
particular, being dependent upon loan payments by Ukreximbank,
might be affected.   Given that the banking system is an arm of
the government's monetary and foreign exchange policy, Moody's
believes that credits dependent upon bank performance may have a
lower probability of having such payments exempted from a
moratorium than would, for example, those of a major exporter.
The Ba2 rating thus indicates the joint probabilities of default
that are contained in Ukraine's foreign currency ceiling and the
stand-alone rating of the security.

The obligations of Ukreximbank to make payments under the loan
agreement will rank at all times at least pari-passu with the
claims of all other unsubordinated creditors of the borrower,
save for those claims that are preferred by any relevant law.
According to Ukrainian legislation, accounts of individuals (19%
of Ukreximbank's total liabilities at end-June 2006) are ranked
senior in right of payment to the claims under the loan
agreement.   The loan agreement contains a cross-acceleration
clause as well as covenants that limit mergers, disposals and
transactions with affiliates.

According to Moody's, the notes might be eligible for early
redemption by the noteholders if the bank's ratings were to be
downgraded as a result of the Ukrainian government's intention
to cease its ownership or control of the bank.  While the
likelihood of the occurrence of a mishandled privatization is
relatively low, this clause might have adverse liquidity
implications for the bank and might exert additional downward
pressure on its ratings in such a situation.

Ukreximbank is headquartered in Kyiv, Ukraine, and reported
total consolidated assets of US$2.5 billion in accordance with
IFRS as at June 30, 2006.

COLT Telecom Group Limited disclosed financial results for the
three and six months ended June 30, 2006, and for the first time
as a wholly owned subsidiary of COLT Telecom Group S.A., its
newly-formed Luxembourg-domiciled parent company.

The purpose of this disclosure is to satisfy the Company's
reporting obligations under the UKLA's Listing Rules in respect
of its listed debt securities.   The financial information is
based on the interim report released by COLT S.A. on July 20 but
includes only the consolidated results, cash flows and balance
sheet of COLT Ltd. and its subsidiaries.

In the six months ended June 30, 2006, the Company reported net
loss of EUR29 million, compared with net loss of EUR76.9 million
in the six months ended June 30, 2005.

                 Second Quarter Highlights

Corporate actions

   -- 2007 Senior Convertible Notes redeemed early for a cash
cost of EUR333 million

   -- delisting from NASDAQ complete and SEC registration
suspended

   -- new parent company incorporated and domiciled in
Luxembourg
   
   -- COLT Telecom Group plc converted from a public limited
company to a private limited company

excluding reductions in fixed to mobile prices, revenue

At June 30, 2006, the Company's balance sheet showed a
stockholders' equity of EUR471.4 million compared with a
stockholders' equity of EUR913.8 at June 30, 2005.  The Company
also experienced strained liquidity for the period with
EUR613.9 million of current assets to pay EUR726.2 million of
liabilities within the year.  

Jean-Yves Charlier, Group Chief Executive, said, "Market
conditions remain tough, with price competition continuing to
feature more prominently in some products and geographies than
others.  To succeed in these challenging markets we must not
only drive new data and other value-added revenues up but also
drive costs down.

"Revenues were flat over the quarter, reflecting a weaker
performance in voice but continued growth in data.  The German
and U.K. voice markets continue to be particularly difficult
reflecting structural decline in Carrier Pre-Select and
increased competition respectively.  Data revenue growth was led
by double-digit growth in Ethernet and Data Centre Solutions.
Revenue from new products is continuing to build but it is not
yet at a fast enough pace for these revenues to be material.  
Our principal revenue challenge continues to be to accelerate
the growth of our new products to be faster than the decline in
legacy products.

"Fixed costs, though down on last year, were up against Q1 and
we are focused on ensuring that the downward trend continues.
Good operational progress has however continued in India, in our
new Pan European Customer Service Centre in Barcelona, and with
the first three companies successfully going live on our new
India based ERP application.

"Despite lower revenues, EBITDA improved and losses were reduced
over last year, reflecting improved data revenue mix and lower
costs.  We were again free cash flow positive in the quarter,
and our loss before taxation and exceptional items reduced to
EUR9 million.

"The program of corporate actions that we announced in February
was successfully completed during Q2.  We have de-listed from
NASDAQ, suspended our SEC registration in the U.S., incorporated
a new group holding company in Luxembourg and redeemed our 2007
Notes.   We have given notice of our intent to redeem the 2008
Notes as well.  Together these actions will make COLT a much
stronger, more profitable company.

"We expect to make progress over the balance of the year.
Although revenues for 2006 are now expected to be broadly in
line with last year, we expect continued improvement in revenue
mix and intend further action on costs. We expect to be free
cash flow positive for the year." Mr. Charlier concluded.

FORD MOTOR: Eyes Sale of Luxury Auto Brands to Investment Group
---------------------------------------------------------------
Ford Motor Co. is in talks to sell its Jaguar and Land Rover
brands led by its former CEO Jacques Nasser, Reuters reports
citing Bloomberg News as its source.

According to Bloomberg, the discussions are with JPMorgan Chase
& Co.'s One Equity Partners LLC, where Mr. Nasser is senior
partner for mergers and acquisition.

The talks, which don't involve Volvo, could result in a joint
venture rather than an outright acquisition, the report states.

In October 2001, Mr. Nasser was ousted as Ford's president and
CEO shortly after the company reported a US$692 million third
quarter loss on top of a loss the previous quarter, Reuters
relates.  

As reported in TCR-Europe on Aug. 22, Ford disclosed plans to
close more factories, cut more management jobs by another 10% to
30% and reduce benefits as it reels from a US$254 million net
loss for the second quarter of 2006.  The original plan called
for termination of 30,000 employees and shutting down of 14
plants by 2012.

GENEMEDIX PLC: May 31 Balance Sheet Upside-Down by GBP1.8 Mln
-------------------------------------------------------------
GeneMedix plc released its unaudited interim financial results
for the six months ended May 31, 2006.

In the six months ended May 31, 2006, GeneMedix reported net
loss of GBP2,798,913 compared with net loss of GBP2,700,204 in
the six months ended May 31, 2005.

At May 31, 2006, the Company's balance sheet showed a
stockholders' deficit of GBP1,793,953 compared with a
stockholders' equity of GBP1,404,937 at May 31, 2005.
The Company also experienced strained liquidity for the period
with GBP1,058,069 of current assets available to pay
GBP2,858,827 of liabilities within the year.

In the six months to May 31, GeneMedix continued to make good
progress in the development of its lead compound Epostim(R)
(Erythropoietin or EPO), and in its restructuring programme.
Expenditure is in line with forecasts, and there were no
revenues in the period.

As mentioned in its Aug. 7 press release, GeneMedix is in
temporary exclusive discussions with a major company, and is
receiving bridging payments to fund its on-going activities
whilst negotiations progress.  The Company also disclosed that
it had received a second cash in-flow on the sale of the Chinese
company, with the deal to be concluded over the coming months,
which will bring a total of approximately GBP1.6 million to the
Company.

The Directors are aware, as mentioned in previous financial
summaries in March and May 2006, that due to the recurring
losses in the business and the effect of long term debt
instruments which are held at book rather than redeemable value,
the Company is demonstrating, under the provisions of S142 of
the Companies Act, a serious loss of capital.   The Directors
have a duty to call an EGM to explain the reasons for this.   

As explained in the preliminary statements this situation has
arisen due to the inability under current accounting rules to
revalue a GBP4 million convertible loan, which the Company has
the option to unwind at about a quarter of its balance sheet
value.

In discussions with certain major shareholders on this issue the
consensus view still remains that the meeting should be held
once the Directors are in a position to give investors clearer
visibility regarding the future direction of the Company.  

As it is the intention of the Company to conclude its
restructuring program shortly with a transaction that will
require shareholder approval, an EGM has not yet been convened,
but should current negotiations with the major company not
progress or suffer any further delays, an EGM will be called
with immediate effect.

These accounts were due to be issued under IFRS, but due to
pragmatic considerations, and the fact that they are only
interim figures, the Directors do not believe that it is in the
best interest of the shareholders for the limited resources of
the Company to be focused on IFRS rather than on the current
potential transaction.

The Directors remain confident that there will be a satisfactory
conclusion to its restructuring program, but it must be clear
that, without continuing to receive cash inflows under the
temporary exclusivity arrangement and if the payments from China
are not received on a timely basis, the Company only has
sufficient resources to continue the current level of activity
for a maximum of two months as of press time.

                      About the Company
                    
Headquartered in the U.K., GeneMedix --
http://www.genedmedix.com/-- is a globally focused  
biopharmaceutical company, specializing in the development and
manufacture of cost effective treatments for some of the world's
most serious diseases.


GENTEK INC: Posts Second Quarter 2006 Financial Results
-------------------------------------------------------
GenTek Inc. generated US$223 million of revenues for the second
quarter ended June 30, 2006, and operating profit of US$16.8
million.  This compares to revenues of US$202.2 million and
operating profit of US$12.3 million in the prior-year period.

The Company's manufacturing and performance chemicals businesses
both contributed to the 10% sales increase, of which 6% was due
to increased copper prices.  Both businesses contributed to the
36% increase in operating profit.

The Company recorded income from continuing operations of US$4.2
million, compared to an income from continuing operations of
US$1.3 million in the second quarter of 2005.

For the six months ended June 30 2006, GenTek had revenues
totaling US$437.8 million and operating profit of US$29.9
million.  This compares to revenues of US$402.4 million and
operating profit of US$17.2 million for 2005.  The Company had
income from continuing operations of US$8.7 million in 2006,
compared to income from continuing operations of US$1.5 million
in the comparable prior-year period.

The increase in revenues in 2006 is attributable to the growth
in the performance chemical and the wire-harness businesses.  
Year over year operating profit improvement has been achieved in
both performance chemicals and manufacturing, driven by margin
improvements and reductions in selling, general and
administrative expenses.

The Company had US$11.9 million of cash and US$337 million of
debt outstanding as of June 30, 2006, and no borrowing
outstanding under its revolving credit facility.

"We are pleased with our current operating momentum and look to
build on this with our recently announced accretive acquisitions
in General Chemical and GT Technologies" said William E.
Redmond, Jr., GenTek's president and CEO.

GENTEK INC: Posts Second Quarter 2006 Financial Results
-------------------------------------------------------
GenTek Inc. generated US$223 million of revenues for the second
quarter ended June 30, 2006, and operating profit of US$16.8
million.  This compares to revenues of US$202.2 million and
operating profit of US$12.3 million in the prior-year period.

The Company's manufacturing and performance chemicals businesses
both contributed to the 10% sales increase, of which 6% was due
to increased copper prices.  Both businesses contributed to the
36% increase in operating profit.

The Company recorded income from continuing operations of US$4.2
million, compared to an income from continuing operations of
US$1.3 million in the second quarter of 2005.

For the six months ended June 30 2006, GenTek had revenues
totaling US$437.8 million and operating profit of US$29.9
million.  This compares to revenues of US$402.4 million and
operating profit of US$17.2 million for 2005.  The Company had
income from continuing operations of US$8.7 million in 2006,
compared to income from continuing operations of US$1.5 million
in the comparable prior-year period.

The increase in revenues in 2006 is attributable to the growth
in the performance chemical and the wire-harness businesses.  
Year over year operating profit improvement has been achieved in
both performance chemicals and manufacturing, driven by margin
improvements and reductions in selling, general and
administrative expenses.

The Company had US$11.9 million of cash and US$337 million of
debt outstanding as of June 30, 2006, and no borrowing
outstanding under its revolving credit facility.

"We are pleased with our current operating momentum and look to
build on this with our recently announced accretive acquisitions
in General Chemical and GT Technologies" said William E.
Redmond, Jr., GenTek's president and CEO.

Rank Group PLC's subsidiary, Grosvenor Casinos Limited agreed to

is most to gain from changes to U.K. gambling regulations," Ian
Burke, chief executive of Rank disclosed.

"We are pleased to acquire the famous Clermont Club.  Our
subsidiary, BIL Gaming Operations U.K. Ltd., has made a number
of casino applications in London and other U.K. cities.  Along
with Clermont, we intend to progressively expand our casino
operations in United Kingdom," Arun Amarsi, chief executive of
BIL International Ltd. expressed.

REFCO INC: Chapter 7 Trustee Gets Nod to Wind Down Refco Trading
----------------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York
gave Albert Togut, the Chapter 7 trustee for Refco, LLC's
estate, authority to complete a wind-down and dissolution of
Refco Trading Services, LLC's business operations in accordance
with Delaware laws.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Aug. 4, 2006,
Refco Trading was formed in 2003 when Refco, Inc., acquired
United Kingdom-based MacFutures, a day-trading business engaging
in commodity futures and options.

Refco Trading followed a similar model to MacFutures and became
Refco LLC's proprietary trading subsidiary.  Most Refco Trading
employees traded using accounts funded by Refco LLC, and only a
few workers had any customer accounts.

Like the Refco Trading proprietary accounts, any third-party
customer accounts were settled on a daily basis to the extent
that the business day would rarely, if ever, end with Refco
Trading having any open trade positions, Scott E. Ratner, Esq.,
at Togut, Segal & Segal LLP, in New York, relates.

Before the Petition Date, Refco Trading had over 100 employees
and business operations in Montreal, Canada; Chicago, Illinois;
and Miami, Florida.  Refco Trading hired employees, trained them
using a proprietary training system, and provided an account
with which to trade. Most of the employees were paid a flat
salary and traded on an account that was settled on a daily
basis.

The traders also received profit percentages of successful
trades as additional remuneration.  Consistent with their
Acquisition Agreement, Man Financial, Inc., has hired most or
all of Refco Trading's former employees.

Refco Trading ceased all trading operations after the Petition
Date.

Refco Trading currently holds approximately US$1,600,000 in
cash.  

The company's liabilities are uncertain, but Mr. Togut believes
that there may be intercompany obligations.  Refco Trading
participated in an intercompany cash management system that paid
the company's obligations to outside sources and repaid the
obligations with intercompany receivables.  Mr. Togut also
believes that there may be liabilities to Canadian taxing
authorities.

Specifically, Mr. Togut proposes to direct certain actions as
are necessary and appropriate to Refco Trading's dissolution and
wind-down, including:

   (a) preparation of accounting reports, statements of receipts
       and disbursements and income statements;

   (b) preparation, signing, and filing of any tax returns in
       the United States or Canada;

   (c) appearances before any governmental authority as may be
       necessary to effectuate a legal wind-down;

   (d) adjudication and resolution of any claims asserted
       against Refco Trading and authorization for payment of
       any allowed claims from Refco Trading's assets to the
       extent required by law; and

   (e) performing any other related tasks as may be necessary to
       effectuate a proper and legal wind-down and dissolution.

Mr. Togut also seeks to pay, without further Court order, all
necessary costs and expenses incurred in connection with the
wind-down, provided that any payments will be made from Refco
Trading's assets, and not those of Refco LLC's estate.

Furthermore, Mr. Togut asks Judge Drain for qualified immunity
from personal liability for his actions in furtherance of Refco
Trading's wind-down.

According to Mr. Togut, Refco LLC's ownership interest in Refco
Trading is an asset of its Chapter 7 estate.  To the extent that
Refco Trading is solvent, its remaining assets will inure to
Refco LLC's benefit.  Therefore, Refco Trading's wind-down and
dissolution pursuant to Delaware laws is consistent with Mr.
Togut's duty to "collect and reduce to money the property of the
estate" under Section 704(a)(1) of the Bankruptcy Code.

Considering that the scope of Refco Trading's assets and
liabilities are unknown, Mr. Togut insists that he must wind
down Refco Trading to determine whether there are any residual
assets that will flow to Refco LLC's estate.

REFCO INC: Ch. 7 Trustee Wants Court OK on Document Sharing Pact
----------------------------------------------------------------
Refco, Inc., and its debtor-affiliates and Man Financial Inc.
entered into an acquisition agreement, dated as of November 13,
2005, and related buyer transition services agreement and seller
transition services agreement, in connection with the sale of
Refco, LLC's futures commission merchant business to Man.

The Court's orders authorizing the Debtors to enter into the
Acquisition Agreement and the Transition Services Agreements
establish obligations and procedures relating to Man and Albert
Togut, the Chapter 7 trustee overseeing the liquidation of Refco
LLC's estate, to obtain access to data, information and
documents held by the other party relating to Refco LLC's
business purchased by Man.

Since the closing of the Sale, both the Refco LLC Trustee and
Man have followed the protocol established by the Transition
Services Agreements, and have reached other informal protocols,
to obtain access to data, information and documents held by the
other party, and both parties anticipate that they will continue
to need access for the foreseeable future.

The Transition Services Agreements are due to expire by their
terms on Aug. 22, 2006 -- 270 days after the closing of the Sale
on Nov. 25, 2005.

Mr. Togut and Man have negotiated a more permanent arrangement
for the parties to gain access to data, information and
documents in the possession of the other party after the
expiration of the Transition Services Agreements, and to
formalize the protocols under which the parties have been
operating.

Mr. Togut seeks the Court's authority to enter into a facilities
management agreement with Man.

The salient terms of the Facilities Management Agreement are:

   (a) The Trustee will maintain documents and other information
       relating to Refco LLC's business prior to the Sale
       closing that were not part of the Acquired Assets and are
       in the possession or control of the Trustee, through the
       earlier of:

          (i) the date the Court enters an order or final decree
              closing Refco LLC's case;

         (ii) the date an Other Termination Event occurs; or

        (iii) the date the Court enters an order otherwise
              terminating the parties' obligations under the
              Facilities Management Agreement;

   (b) The Trustee will provide Man access to the Refco Records
       for:

          (i) the purpose of Man responding to any Information
              Request directed to Man;

         (ii) any other purpose reasonably related to Man's
              operation of the business and assets acquired from
              Refco LLC and its affiliates.  The Trustee will
              retrieve and provide to Man electronically copies
              of Refco e-mail upon written request from Man.

   (c) Man will maintain documents and other information
       relating to Refco LLC's business that were part of the
       Acquired Assets and are in the possession or control of
       Man through the Termination Date;

   (d) Man will provide the Trustee access to the Man Records
       for purposes of the Trustee:

          (i) responding to any Information Request directed to
              the Trustee or Refco LLC; or

         (ii) otherwise accessing, reviewing, retrieving or
              photocopying Man Records as the Trustee determines
              is necessary; and

   (e) Man will provide "Information Retrieval Services" to the
       Trustee to enable him to:

          (i) respond to any Information Request directed to the
              Trustee or Refco LLC; or

         (ii) otherwise access, review, retrieve or photocopy
              Records as the Trustee determines is necessary.

Each party will bear its own costs in obtaining access to the
party's Records.  However, Refco LLC will reimburse Man for the
costs arising from Man's employees or independent contractors
performing Information Retrieval Services at the effective
hourly rates of the employees or contractors performing those
services.

Man will reimburse Refco LLC for costs arising from the
Chapter 7 Debtor's employees retrieving and providing electronic
copies to Man of Refco E-mail at the effective hourly rates of
the employees performing those services.

Jerry L. Switzer, Esq., at Jenner & Block LLP, in Chicago,
Illinois, explains that the Refco LLC Trustee will require
access to the Records for purposes of responding to Information
Requests served on the Trustee or Refco LLC, and otherwise
administering the Chapter 7 Debtor's estate for the foreseeable
future.

Mr. Switzer notes that Mr. Togut needs Man to perform the
Information Retrieval Services because Refco LLC no longer has
any employees, except to the limited extent that employees of
the Chapter 11 Debtors are allocated on a part time basis to the
Chapter 7 Debtor.

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.

Each Tuesday edition of the TCR contains a list of companies
with insolvent balance sheets whose shares trade higher than
US$3 per share in public markets.  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.

A list of Meetings, Conferences and Seminars appears in each
Thursday's edition of the TCR. Submissions about insolvency-
related conferences are encouraged.  Send announcements to
