ALCATEL-LUCENT: In Talks With Dutch Unions on Further Job Cuts
--------------------------------------------------------------
Alcatel-Lucent has met with representatives of the Dutch Works
Council and unions to begin discussing how the company's
international synergy plans will impact employee positions in
the Netherlands.  Alcatel-Lucent has also informed its employees
about these preliminary discussions.

In April 2006, when the merger between Alcatel and Lucent
Technologies was announced, the companies stated the primary
driver of the merger was to generate growth in revenues and
earnings while yielding synergies.  On Feb. 9, the company
provided an update on its integration efforts.

It believes the combination of the original synergy plan and
additional cost reductions will enable it to realize a total of
EUR1.7 billion pre-tax cost savings within three years. The cost
reductions will entail globally about 12,500 reductions to the
workforce over the next three years.

The topics presented to the works council are a starting point
within the legal frameworks set out for consultations with
employees and unions prior to any actions.

"We have undertaken a thorough and thoughtful review of our
operations in the Netherlands, and we anticipate that we need to
reduce our workforce with 140-180 people over the next 24
months," said Coert de Boer, Managing Director for Alcatel-
Lucent in The Netherlands.  "These are difficult decisions, and
we will be sensitive to employees, treat them with the dignity
and respect they deserve.  We will do everything we can to
minimize the impact on employees and provide them with resources
for a smooth transition, either within our organization or at
other companies.  We have a number of long-term projects in the
Netherlands for which we need additional people. Our growth
ambitions imply furthermore that we expect to create new jobs in
new areas that we will explore.  It speaks for itself that we
will first look for re-education opportunities of our existing
staff and then will start recruiting. We will work closely
together with the Works Council and the unions in the
Netherlands on these matters."

Currently, Alcatel-Lucent employs some 700 people in the
Netherlands, in a variety of positions.

The forced reductions reflect duplications in positions and
rationalization in product and solution portfolio as well as
ongoing cost-efficiency efforts for the Company.  Together with
the Dutch Works Council and unions, Alcatel-Lucent will offer
outplacement services for affected employees and make every
effort to support those employees whose positions will
disappear.

These discussions are at an early stage and it would be
premature, the company said, to comment further.

ALCATEL-LUCENT: Inks Network Convergence Deal with Vodafone
-----------------------------------------------------------
Alcatel-Lucent has been selected by Vodafone in Spain to migrate
all networking services onto a highly reliable Alcatel-Lucent
IP/MPLS based network.

The converged network will support broadband data services,
signaling and billing traffic, 3G voice traffic as well as
future multimedia evolutions.  The project, part of a global
network transformation to IP, will enable the operator to
guarantee end-to-end quality of service, to optimize its network
performance and to support new multimedia services.

By evolving its networks to a next-generation infrastructure,
Vodafone will support all services on a single network allowing
the mobile operator to optimize its investment and operational
expenditures, and accelerate the launch of new advanced and
convergent services to the market.

"This project provides our network with the reliability and
versatility needed to offer our consumer and corporate clients
the highest quality and most advanced mobile services on the
market," said Jaime Bustillo, Technology director from Vodafone
Spain.  "A streamlined network based on the Alcatel-Lucent IP
solution allows us to dramatically improve on CAPEX and OPEX
while still gaining new revenue opportunities.  As well,
Alcatel-Lucent is involved in the Vodafone Group's overall end-
to-end IP transformation initiative so from a consistency point
of view, the Alcatel-Lucent IP solution is a perfect fit."

With the Alcatel-Lucent IP/MPLS solution, Vodafone is optimizing
the use of bandwidth in its IP core network, that will
dynamically be adapted to the bandwidth needs depending on the
volume of data and the type of traffic transmitted.
Additionally, its intelligent service management capabilities
will allow the operator to guarantee reliability and end-to-end
quality, and to diversify its offering by establishing
differentiated quality of service levels based on the type of
client or the use of the network. This is a significant
advantage for high bandwidth multimedia services that are very
demanding in terms of network performance.

"Users are requesting more innovative and sophisticated 'always
on' mobile services with optimal quality and widespread
availability which is very demanding in terms of network
performance," said Olivier Picard, President of Alcatel-Lucent's
Europe and South activities.  "Offering a service mix of this
caliber requires a complete network transformation giving
Vodafone the reliability, performance and flexibility of a
converged network architecture.  Alcatel-Lucent's unique high
availability features in our service routers are ideally geared
toward delivering mobile voice services over an IP/MPLS
network."

Alcatel-Lucent is providing Vodafone with an IP/MPLS core and
edge network solution based on its next generation Alcatel-
Lucent 7750 Service Router and 7710 Service Router along with
the Alcatel-Lucent 5620 Service Aware Manager.

Vodafone joins more than 160 service providers in over 60
countries, including massive, multi-year IP network and service
transformation projects at AT&T, BT, Cable & Wireless, and
Telstra.  According to Ovum-RHK, Alcatel-Lucent was second in
the IP/MPLS Edge market segment in Q4 2006, with 19% market
share.

DAIMLERCHRYSLER AG: Earns EUR3.2-Bln Prelim Net Income in 2006
--------------------------------------------------------------
DaimlerChrysler AG has reported its preliminary Group and
divisional results for the year 2006.

DaimlerChrysler recorded an operating profit of EUR5.517 billion
in 2006, compared with EUR5.185 billion in 2005.

The development of the Group's operating profit was primarily
impacted by the significant decline in earnings at the Chrysler
Group.  This was more than offset by the substantial earnings
improvement at the Mercedes Car Group and the repeated increase
in earnings at the Truck Group and the Financial Services
division.  The contribution to earnings from the Van, Bus, Other
segment was lower than in the prior year.

Net income increased by EUR4 million to EUR3.2 billion (2005:
EUR2.8 billion).  Based on the reported net income, earnings per
share amounted to EUR3.16 compared with EUR2.80 in 2005.

                           Dividend

The Board of Management proposes to the Supervisory Board that a
dividend of EUR1.50 per share should be distributed for the year
2006 (2005: EUR1.50).  This proposal takes account not only of
the development of operating profit and cash flow in 2006, but
also of expectations for the coming years.

                    Unit Sales and Revenues

DaimlerChrysler sold a total of 4.7 million vehicles in 2006
(2005: 4.8 million), while the Group's total revenues increased
by 1% to EUR151.6 billion.  Adjusted for exchange-rate effects
and changes in the consolidated Group, the increase in revenues
amounted to 2%.

                        The Workforce

As of Dec. 31, 2006, DaimlerChrysler employed a workforce of
360,385 people worldwide (2005: 382,724).  Of this total,
166,617 were employed in Germany (2005: 182,060) and 94,792 in
the United States (2005: 97,480).

The implementation of the new management model is running
according to plan.  By the end of January 2007, approximately
2,000 employees worldwide had either signed voluntary severance
agreements or had already left the Group.

DaimlerChrysler has been working with the new structures since
Aug. 1, 2006.  Important processes have been made faster and
more efficient, allowing substantial efficiency gains.  The
total expenditure for the implementation of the program in the
years 2006 through 2008 is likely to be in the region of EUR2
billion.  Of this total, EUR393 million was incurred in the year
2006.

                   Investing to Safeguard Future

Worldwide, the DaimlerChrysler Group invested a total of
EUR5.9 billion in property, plant and equipment in 2006 (2005:
EUR6.6 billion).  Capital expenditure at the Mercedes Car Group
of EUR1.7 billion was slightly higher than in the prior year
(EUR1.6 billion).  To continue its product offensive and to make
its production facilities more flexible, the Chrysler Group
invested EUR2.9 billion in property, plant and equipment (2005:
EUR3.1 billion).  The Truck Group invested EUR907 million in
2006, mainly related to new technologies, powertrains, and
safety concepts (2005: EUR966 million).

Expenditure for research and development totaled EUR5.3 billion
in 2006 (2005: EUR5.6 billion).  The most important projects at
the Mercedes Car Group were the new generation of the E-Class,
the new version of the CL-Class, and preparations for the model
change for the C-Class in 2007.

The Chrysler Group's focus was on the development of the new
minivan generation as well as on hybrid vehicles.  The Truck
Group's major projects included the successor models for the
Mercedes-Benz Actros and Axor, for the Freightliner Premium
Class and for the Mitsubishi Fuso Super Great.

Additional key areas of R&D activities at DaimlerChrysler were
the further development of powertrain technologies, alternative
propulsion systems such as hybrid drive and fuel cells, and
electronic systems for the improvement of vehicle safety.

During the planning period of 2007 through 2009, DaimlerChrysler
will presumably invest a total of EUR17.5 billion in property,
plant and equipment and EUR16.2 billion in research and
development activities.  This adds up to total of investment in
safeguarding the future of EUR33.7 billion.

                       Mercedes Car Group

The Mercedes Car Group division, comprising the brands Mercedes-
Benz, Maybach, smart, Mercedes-Benz AMG, and Mercedes-Benz
McLaren, sold 1,251,800 vehicles in 2006 (2005: 1,216,800).

Revenues of EUR54.6 billion were 9% higher than the prior year's
level.

The Mercedes Car Group achieved an operating profit of
EUR2.415 billion in 2006, compared with an operating loss of
EUR505 million in the prior year.  The results of both years
were significantly affected by special items.

There were expenses of EUR946 million in connection with the
discontinuation of production of the smart forfour in 2006,
while the realignment of the smart business model in 2005
resulted in charges of EUR1.111 billion.

Charges relating to staff reductions at Mercedes-Benz Passenger
Cars in the context of the CORE program decreased to
EUR286 million in 2006 (2005: EUR570 million).

The substantial increase in the division's operating profit is
due in particular to the efficiency improvements achieved in the
context of the CORE program.  Other positive factors were the
higher unit sales of Mercedes-Benz passenger cars and the
improved model mix due to the launch of the new S-Class as well
as the
M- and GL-Class models.  A negative impact on operating profit
in 2006 resulted from currency effects.

The Mercedes-Benz brand increased unit sales in the year under
review by 5% to 1,149,100 vehicles.  As a result, the brand was
able to boost its market share in key regions, despite tougher
competition.  This positive result was primarily due to the very
successful new model launches in 2005, particularly of the new
S-Class, which went on sale in the United States in February
2006.  Like the new CL- and GL-Class models, the updated E- and
SL-Class vehicles launched in 2006 were also very well received
by the market and contributed to the Mercedes-Benz brand's
success in the year under review.  On Oct. 15, 2006, the
division launched the E320 BLUETEC -- the world's cleanest
diesel passenger car -- in the United States and Canada.

The extensive measures being implemented to further improve the
quality of DaimlerChrysler's vehicles are having very positive
effects.  This claim is supported by internal analyses and many
external studies.  The J.D. Power Initial Quality Study 2006
concluded that the Mercedes-Benz brand has a positive trend in
the category of initial quality.  Improvements were achieved in
nearly all of the issues that were addressed in last year's
study (IQS 2005).

Unit sales of the smart brand totaled 102,700 vehicles in the
year under review (2005: 124,300).  Unit sales of the smart
fortwo developed especially well throughout the year, with the
model's production volume once again exceeding the planned
target in the vehicle's ninth year of production.

More than 750,000 smart fortwos have been sold since the
vehicle's market launch.  Despite an increase in production at
the beginning of the year, nearly all smart fortwo models built
had been sold by the end of 2006.  Sales of the last smart
roadsters and smart forfour models proceeded according to plan;
nearly all remaining stocks of these vehicles had been sold by
the end of the year under review.

In November 2006, smart unveiled the new smart fortwo, which
will be launched in Europe in April 2007.  Starting in 2008, the
new smart fortwo will also be available in the United States,
which has become a promising market for smart due to increasing
traffic volumes and rising fuel prices.  The second-largest
automobile retail organization in the United States -- the
UnitedAuto Group -- will act as the exclusive importer of smart
brand vehicles.

                          Chrysler Group

Worldwide, the Chrysler Group shipped 2.7 million Chrysler,
Jeep(R) and Dodge branded passenger cars, sports tourers,
minivans, SUVs, and light trucks to its dealerships in 2006
(2005: 2.8 million).  Worldwide retail sales decreased by 5% in
2006 to 2.7 million units.

As a result of lower volumes and a weaker US dollar on average
for the year, the Chrysler Group's revenues for the year of
EUR47.1 billion were significantly lower than in 2005
(EUR50.1 billion).

The Chrysler Group posted an operating loss of EUR1.118 billion
in 2006, compared with an operating profit of EUR1,534 million
in 2005.

The deterioration in operating results was primarily the result
of negative net pricing, unfavorable product, and sales market
mix, and a decline in factory unit sales in the United States.
These factors reflect the continuing difficult market
environment in the United States during 2006 marked by an
overall decline in market volume, a shift in consumer demand
towards smaller, more fuel-efficient vehicles due to higher fuel
prices, as well as the impact of higher interest rates.

These negative factors were partially offset by the market
success of the new models, most of which were launched in the
second half of the year.  Several of these vehicles target this
shift in consumer demand, resulting in a positive contribution
to earnings in the fourth quarter of the year.

In addition, the financial support provided to supplier Collins
& Aikman led to a charge of EUR66 million in 2006, compared to
EUR99 million in 2005.  The Chrysler Group's prior-year
operating profit was positively impacted by a EUR240 million
gain on the sale of the Arizona Proving Grounds vehicle testing
facility.

The Chrysler Group launched a total of 10 attractive new models
in 2006, and significantly expanded its sales outside the NAFTA
region (+22% to 214,400 vehicles).  Dodge launched its compact
five-door car -- the Dodge Caliber, as well as its first mid-
size SUV -- the Dodge Nitro, and the new Dodge Ram 3500 Chassis
Cab.  The new positioning of the Jeep(R) brand portfolio
continued with the launch of the compact Jeep(R) Compass.  Other
new models launched were the Jeep(R) Grand Cherokee SRT8, the
new Jeep(R) Wrangler, the four-door Jeep(R) Wrangler Unlimited
and the Jeep(R) Patriot.  The Chrysler brand launched the Aspen,
its first full-size SUV, while the new Chrysler Sebring is
intended to strengthen the Chrysler Group's competitive position
in the mid-size sedan category.

The Chrysler Group also made more progress in the field of
vehicle quality in 2006.  Internal measurements show that the
quality of the division's vehicles is better than ever before, a
fact which is confirmed by external quality studies: The
Chrysler brand ranked in the top ten in the 2006 J.D. Power
Initial Quality Study.

All three Chrysler Group brands also made gains in the 2006 J.D.
Power Vehicle Dependability Study, showing that customer
perception of quality continues to improve as new vehicles
replace older models in the product range.

The new manufacturing flexibility strategies have helped to
improve the Chrysler Group's efficiency, allowing the division
to better utilize its assets, such as the Belvidere (Illinois)
Assembly Plant, where the Dodge Caliber is built with the use of
highly flexible robots and free of vehicle-specific heavy
tooling.  Over the four years of 2002 through 2005, the Chrysler
Group posted a cumulative 24% productivity improvement, with a
6% improvement in 2005, as confirmed by the 2006 Harbour Report,
a
recognized industry study that measures the productivity of
North American automotive manufacturers.

One year after the start of production by the Global Engine
Manufacturing Alliance, the second World Engine plant opened in
Dundee (Michigan) in October 2006.  The two plants in Dundee are
part of a five-factory global venture developed by
DaimlerChrysler, Hyundai Motor and Mitsubishi Motors.

                          Truck Group

In 2006, the Truck Group built on the very successful
developments of the prior year, increasing unit sales by 1% to a
new record of 537,000 vehicles.

The higher sales volume and an improved model mix also led
revenues to rise sharply by 5% to EUR32.0 billion.

The Truck Group achieved an operating profit of EUR2.020 billion
in 2006, a significant increase from the previous year's result
of EUR1.606 billion.  The operating profit posted in 2005
included exceptional income of EUR276 million from the
settlement reached with Mitsubishi Motors Corporation relating
to expenditure for quality actions and recall campaigns at
Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation.

The increase in operating profit was primarily the result of
efficiency improvements realized in the context of the Global
Excellence Program as well as improved product positioning and
model mix.  In addition, higher unit sales, which were mainly
the result of purchases brought forward because of stricter
emission limits in important markets, contributed to the higher
earnings.  Higher expenses for new vehicle projects, for the
fulfillment of future emission regulations as well as currency
effects had a negative impact on operating profit.

Trucks Europe/Latin America (Mercedes-Benz) once again increased
its unit sales in the core markets of Western Europe.  However,
due to a market downturn in Brazil and lower sales in the Near
and Middle East, total unit sales of 142,100 vehicles were
slightly below the prior year's high level.  Operating in a very
positive market environment, the Trucks NAFTA unit
(Freightliner, Sterling, Western Star, Thomas Built Buses)
increased its sales by 3% in 2006 to the record level of 208,300
vehicles.  Trucks Asia (Mitsubishi Fuso) sold 186,600 vehicles
in 2006, a sharp increase (+4%) on the prior year.

In the summer of 2006, as part of a roadshow through 12 major
European cities the division presented the Mercedes-Benz Safety
Truck, which combines all of the currently available assistance
and safety systems, including Active Brake Assist (emergency
braking support), Lane Assistant, Adaptive Cruise Control, and
the Stability Program.

Large-scale trials have shown that accident frequency can be
reduced by 50% by the Mercedes-Benz Safety Package.
Furthermore, The Truck Group's Hybrid Technology Competence
Center passed one of its first milestones with the introduction
of Fuso's Canter Eco Hybrid in Japan.  In 2006, to ensure that
it is ideally prepared to face future challenges, the Truck
Group began to build a Development and Testing Center in the
vicinity of the Wörth, Germany, truck assembly plant.  The first
stage of construction is scheduled to be completed during the
year 2007.

Coinciding with Group-wide implementation of the new management
model, the Truck Group was launched on Aug. 1, 2006, with a
modified organizational structure.  The division now consists of
three operating units: Trucks Europe/Latin America, Trucks
NAFTA, and Trucks Asia, each of which is responsible for
production and sales operations in its respective region.

In order to more extensively exploit synergies as early as the
product creation phase -- and to allow the enhanced
harmonization of parts and components -- the former Truck
Product Creation unit was split into two powerful units: Truck
Product Engineering, which is responsible for the three vehicle
development centers in Stuttgart, Portland and Kawasaki as well
as the integrated development of large components, and Truck
Powertrain Operations & Manufacturing Engineering, which
oversees worldwide component production and production planning
for vehicle and component plants.

                      Financial Services

The Financial Services division once again developed positively
and further improved its market position in 2006.  Financial
Services significantly improved its operating profit from
EUR1.468 billion in 2005 to EUR1.714 billion in 2006, thus
achieving record earnings for the fifth consecutive year.  The
increase in operating profit was the result of higher new
business and ongoing efficiency improvements.  These factors
more than offset higher expenses resulting from higher interest
rates and increased cost of risk.  In addition, the business
development at Toll Collect also contributed to the positive
earnings trend.

New business increased by 10% to EUR53 billion, while contract
volume of EUR113.3 billion was 4% lower than in the prior year.
Adjusted for exchange-rate effects, contract volume rose by 5%.
At the end of 2006, Financial Services' portfolio comprised
6.5 million leased and financed vehicles.

The Americas region (North and South America) managed a total
contract volume of EUR80.4 billion at the end of 2006 (end of
2005: EUR85.9 billion).  This was once again the highest volume
recorded by any Financial Services region, accounting for 71% of
the total portfolio.  Adjusted for exchange-rate effects, the
portfolio in the region expanded by 4%.

The Europe, Africa & Asia/Pacific region also developed
positively in 2006.  Contract volume of EUR32.9 billion was 3%
higher than the prior year's level.  In Germany, DaimlerChrysler
Bank further improved its market position: contract volume at
the biggest European national company rose by 5% to EUR16
billion.  DaimlerChrysler Bank welcomed its one-millionth
customer in May 2006.

DaimlerChrysler Financial Services expanded its financing
activities for commercial vehicles in Japan by establishing the
new Fuso Financial business unit.  Since September 2006, Fuso
Financial is in charge of Mitsubishi Fuso's entire dealer
network in Japan.

                        Van, Bus, Other

Within the framework of the new management model,
DaimlerChrysler decided that the vans and buses activities,
which until 2005 were part of the Commercial Vehicles division,
would be directly managed as separate units.  In addition, the
Corporate Research department and the development departments of
the Mercedes Car Group were merged; as a result, they are now
directly allocated to the Mercedes Car Group.

The Van, Bus, Other segment recorded an operating profit of
EUR913 million in 2006 (2005: EUR1.091 billion).  Operating
profit in 2006 includes charges of EUR393 million for the
implementation of the new management model.  These charges were
mainly incurred for workforce reductions in the DaimlerChrysler
Group's administrative areas.  Exceptional income was achieved
in 2006 from the sale of real estate not required for operating
purposes (EUR133 million) and the consummation of the sale of
the off-highway business (EUR248 million).

Operating profit for 2005 included a positive contribution from
the off-highway business of EUR144 million.  The Van and Bus
operating units again achieved positive results.

Unit sales at the Vans unit totaled 256,900 vehicles worldwide
in the year under review (2005: 267,200).  This slight decrease
in sales was due to the Sprinter model changeover and associated
production bottlenecks at the Düsseldorf plant.  DaimlerChrysler
Buses comprises the bus operations of the Mercedes-Benz, Setra,
and Orion brands.  The unit sold 36,200 buses and chassis
worldwide in 2006 (2005: 36,200).  The Buses unit thus repeated
the high level of unit sales it achieved in the prior year and
maintained its position as the global market leader.

EADS contributed EUR649 million to the segment's operating
profit, which was below the prior-year result of EUR757 million.
The reduction is primarily related to delays with the delivery
of the Airbus A380.  EADS will publish its results for the 2006
financial year on March 9, 2007.

                            Outlook

On the basis of the divisions' planning, DaimlerChrysler expects
the Group's total unit sales to increase slightly in the year
2007.  DaimlerChrysler assumes that total revenues in 2007 will
be at least in the magnitude of the prior year.

Based on the divisions' projections, DaimlerChrysler should
achieve a significant increase in profitability in the planning
period of 2007 through 2009.

A fundamental condition for the targeted increase in earnings is
a generally stable economic and political situation, as well as
the moderate rise in the worldwide demand for passenger cars and
commercial vehicles expected for the years 2007 through 2009.
Opportunities and risks may arise from the development of
currency exchange rates and raw-material prices.

In the year 2007, DaimlerChrysler will change over its
accounting and financial reporting to the International
Financial Reporting Standards.  The present main performance
measure, operating profit according to US GAAP, will then be
replaced with EBIT (earnings before interest and taxes).  The
earnings outlook will be put into more detail with the
publication of the interim report on the first quarter of 2007.

                     About DaimlerChrysler

Based in Stuttgart, Germany, DaimlerChrysler AG --
http://www.daimlerchrysler.com/-- develops, manufactures,
distributes, and sells various automotive products, primarily
passenger cars, light trucks, and commercial vehicles worldwide.
It primarily operates in four segments: Mercedes Car Group,
Chrysler Group, Commercial Vehicles, and Financial Services.

The Chrysler Group segment offers cars and minivans, pick-up
trucks, sport utility vehicles, and vans under the Chrysler,
Jeep, and Dodge brand names.  It also sells parts and
accessories under the MOPAR brand.

The Chrysler Group is facing a difficult market environment in
the United States with excess inventory, non-competitive legacy
costs for employees and retirees, continuing high fuel prices
and a stronger shift in demand toward smaller vehicles.  At the
same time, key competitors have further increased margin and
volume pressures -- particularly on light trucks -- by making
significant price concessions.  In addition, increased interest
rates caused higher sales & marketing expenses.

In order to improve the earnings situation of the Chrysler Group
as quickly and comprehensively, measures to increase sales and
cut costs in the short term are being examined at all stages of
the value chain, in addition to structural changes being
reviewed as well.

                            Outlook

As reported in the TCR-Europe on Oct. 30, 2006, DaimlerChrysler
said it expects a slight decrease in worldwide demand for
automobiles in the fourth quarter and thus slower market growth
than in Q4 2005. For full-year 2006, the company anticipates
market growth of around 3%. It expects unit sales in 2006 to be
lower than in the previous year (4.8 million units).  The
company reported a third-quarter operating loss of EUR1.16
billion.

On Sept. 15, 2006, DaimlerChrysler reduced the Group's operating
profit target for 2006 to US$6.3 billion.  Although the company
now has to assume that the profit contribution from EADS will be
US$0.3 billion lower than originally anticipated because of the
delayed delivery of the Airbus A380, DaimlerChrysler is
maintaining this earnings target due to very positive business
developments in the divisions Mercedes Car Group, Truck Group
and Financial Services.


DAIMLERCHRYSLER: Chrysler Unveils Recovery & Transformation Plan
----------------------------------------------------------------
DaimlerChrysler AG's Chrysler Group has announced a three-year
Recovery and Transformation Plan that seeks a return to
profitability by 2008 while also taking steps to change its
business model for the long run.  The plan will result in an
employee reduction of 13,000 people from 2007 to 2009.

Chrysler Group President and Chief Executive Officer Tom LaSorda
outlined the plan at the DaimlerChrysler AG Annual Press
Conference, held in Auburn Hills, Mich.

DaimlerChrysler Chairman of the Board of Management Dr. Dieter
Zetsche said: "The Chrysler Team worked out a comprehensive
Recovery and Transformation Plan using all resources within
DaimlerChrysler.  In addition to that and in order to optimize
and accelerate the presented plan we are looking into further
strategic options with partners beyond the business cooperation
partners mentioned.  In this regard, we do not exclude any
option in order to find the best solution for both the Chrysler
Group and DaimlerChrysler."

Overall, the Recovery and Transformation Plan is aimed at a
return to profitability with a primary focus on costs.  It is
structured to over-achieve in order to offset potential
unforeseen market headwinds, resulting in a target of EUR3.5
billion ($4.5 billion) of financial improvements -- or a return
on sales of 2.5% -- by 2009.

"There are two integrated parts to the plan," Mr. LaSorda said.
"First, the Chrysler Group needs to solidify its position in the
North American marketplace.  In addition, the key to our long-
term success will be our ability to transform the organization
into a different company to achieve and sustain long-term
profitability."

The program will be supported by a EUR2.3 billion ($3 billion)
investment in new engines, transmissions, and axles, which will
set the table for a product offensive of more than 20 all-new
and 13 refreshed vehicles from 2007 to 2009.

                             Recovery

The Recovery plan is aimed at a return to profitability through
a combination of revenue programs and by sharply focusing on
costs.

The key measures include:

A. Revenue Management

   * Continue the product offensive with eight new and five
     refreshed products in 2007.  Key products include the new
     Chrysler Town and Country and Dodge Grand Caravan minivans,
     midsize Dodge Avenger sedan, Chrysler Sebring convertible,
     and a Jeep Liberty that completes the revamping and
expansion
     of the Jeep family.

   * Improve the retail-to-fleet mix, build momentum with new
     offerings in global markets, and improve the effectiveness
of
     marketing and incentive spending.

   * Reduce and optimize the dealer network to improve dealer
     profitability.

B. Material and Fixed Costs

   * Reduce material costs by up to EUR1.15 billion ($1.5
billion)
     by 2009.

   * Explore the sale of support operations, including
     transportation services.

C. Capacity & Efficiency

   * Reduce total production capacity by 400,000 units per year.

   * In 2007, eliminate a shift at Newark (Delaware) Assembly
     Plant and the Warren (Michigan) Truck Plant.  In 2008,
     eliminate a shift at St. Louis (Missouri) South Assembly
     Plant.

   * Idle Newark Assembly Plant in 2009.

   * Idle the Cleveland (Ohio) Parts Distribution Center in
     December 2007.

   * Adjust powertrain, stamping, and component operations to
     reflect reduced capacity.

D. Employee Reduction

   * Overall, Chrysler Group will reduce the number of employees
     by 13,000, or approximately 16%.

   * Hourly employment will be reduced by 11,000 over three
years,
     with 9,000 in the U.S., and 2,000 in Canada (4,700 in the
     U.S. and 1,100 in Canada in 2007 alone).

   * Of the U.S. hourly total, 4,000 employees will be impacted
by
     assembly plant actions; 1,000 by reduced capacity in
     powertrain, stamping and other component operations, 1,000
by
     other actions including the potential sale of support
     functions and 3,000 through technology, efficiency, and
     productivity.

   * Salaried employment will be reduced by 2,000 over the next
     two years, with 1,000 each in 2007 and 2008.

   * Special retirement programs and other termination and
     attrition programs will be announced separately.

Mr. LaSorda said these actions complement significant other
restructuring measures taken since 2001.  Previous to this
announcement, the company closed, idled, or sold 16 plants (five
assembly, 11 component) and reduced its workforce by one-third.

The financial impact of these Recovery measures will be seen
beginning in 2007 with a restructuring charge of up to
EUR1 billion ($1.3 billion), with the net cash impact for the
year of about EUR800 million ($1 billion).  The impact of the
balance will be in the following two years.

In 2007, the Chrysler Group expects to further reduce dealer
inventories to align with market demand, which will result in a
reduction in operating profit of approximately EUR230 million
($300 million).

                          Transformation

Key parts of the Transformation will be a greater global
footprint and a shift in the product mix to smaller, more fuel-
efficient vehicles.

Currently, North America represents some 90% of the Chrysler
Group's business, and its product line-up has historically been
heavily weighted toward minivans, trucks and sport utility
vehicles.

"Those two factors were advantages for Chrysler Group once upon
a time," Mr. LaSorda said, "but the rules of the global
marketplace have changed.  High fuel prices and other dramatic
shifts in the market have driven a shift in consumer preferences
to smaller, more fuel-efficient vehicles.  We must make some
strategic adjustments to build off our historic strengths, but
not rely on them so much so that we are put at a competitive
disadvantage," he said.

"That will require a redesigned business model, with three
primary areas of strategic focus," Mr. LaSorda said.  "First,
the Chrysler Group will add a more robust customer and brand
focus while continuing to stress product leadership.  In
addition, we must achieve better global balance and rely more
heavily on leveraging partnerships to manage costs while finding
growth opportunities."

Specifically, Mr. LaSorda pointed to the following initiatives:

A. Customer and Brand Focus

   * Continue the product offensive through 2009, with more than
     20 all-new vehicles and 13 refreshed vehicles.

   * Build on its existing product strengths through new entries
     in the minivan, pick-up truck, and select rear-drive
     full-size vehicles.  At the same time, the company will
learn
     to do more with less with a plan to reduce product
platforms
     from the current 12 to seven by the year 2012.

   * Expand into new commercial vehicle segments, including
     entering the Class 4 & 5 truck segments for the first time.

   * Continue the shift to a car/truck mix that is less reliant
on
     trucks.

   * Invest in powertrain with EUR2.3 billion ($3 billion)
     dedicated to new engines, transmissions, and axles, in
order
     to move toward a portfolio that is more fuel efficient.
That
     will include a common axle program for all vehicles, plus
     work on a new transmission technology.  Last week, the
     company signed a non-binding memorandum of understanding
with
     Getrag (a German-based supplier) to develop this more fuel
     efficient "dual clutch" transmission technology.

   * As part of that powertrain offensive, the company has under
     development a new V-6 engine platform (dubbed "Phoenix")
     which is targeted to reduce the number of six-cylinder
engine
     families from four to one.

   * In addition, Chrysler Group will introduce its first two-
mode
     full hybrid with the 2008 Dodge Durango, and is also
     evaluating a mild hybrid for future applications.

   * Finally, it will expand its line-up of diesel engines,
     including several BLUETEC-labeled vehicles, a designation
     emblematic of the cleanest diesel in its class.

B. Increase Global Presence

   * Avoid nameplate redundancies in North America and develop
and
     introduce vehicle programs aimed at global markets.

   * Use third parties where possible to access regional
products
     and markets where it makes economic sense.

   * Balance supplier purchasing globally by targeting
     EUR3.8 billion ($5 billion) of additional purchasing to
     low-cost sources to complement the company's global growth.

C. Partnerships

   * Better use of alliances and partnerships around the world,
     such as the Chrysler Group does currently with:

     -- In manufacturing, an agreement with Volkswagen to build
        minivans in North America for VW's dealers.

     -- In retail, such as in Mexico where it sells a
        Hyundai-produced vehicle as the Dodge Atos, and soon
will
        sell a small cargo van produced in Taiwan.

     -- In import opportunities, such as the recently-announced
        agreement in principle with Chery Automobile Company of
        China (contingent upon approvals from the
DaimlerChrysler
        Supervisory Board and the Chinese government) produce a
        small car for sale in North America and Europe.

     -- And in focused partnerships, such as the GEMA World
Engine
        project with Hyundai and Mitsubishi in Dundee, Mich., or
        the DaimlerChrysler consortium with General Motors and
        BMW to develop hybrids.

SCHEFENACKER AG: Unveils New Financial Restructuring Scheme
-----------------------------------------------------------
Schefenacker AG, now known as Schefenacker Plc, has agreed a
financial restructuring plan with its senior lenders and
shareholder.

Binding heads of terms have been executed that propose that the
financial indebtedness of the Schefenacker Group, currently
standing at around EUR450 million is to be replaced by a new
financial package consisting of a new senior revolving facility
of EUR25 million, a senior term facility of EUR170 million, and
a new mezzanine facility of around EUR110 million.

                             Bonds

The bondholders will be asked to convert their debt into 5.0
percent of the restructured equity of the holding company of the
Schefenacker Group.

"The financial restructuring will be achieved without any
disruption to the operational activities of any group company,"
Stephen Taylor, Schefenacker's Chief Restructuring Officer,
said.  "If the bondholders agree to this they will retain a
stake in a recapitalized and profitable international mirrors
business."  Mr. Taylor also confirmed that the coupon on the
bonds due on Feb. 12 would not be paid.

                     Divestiture of Lighting

As part of the financial restructuring, stakeholders have agreed
to refocus the business on its core mirror business and separate
the German lighting division into a standalone business in
anticipation of a potential sale.  Separately there will be a
controlled wind down of the U.S. lighting business on a solvent
basis that minimizes disruption to OEM supplies. In 2006 the
lighting division accounted for around 22% of Group sales.

In anticipation of the sale of lighting, the relatively small
residual mirror business in Germany will be managed as part of
the European Business Unit, headquartered in Portchester, U.K.
and the ultimate holding company will henceforth be Schefenacker
Plc, also registered in the U.K.

As a result of this financial restructuring, the company's
annualized cash outflow to meet the interest burden will be more
than halved.  In addition the group will receive EUR55-million
fresh money. The holding company equity in the Group post-
restructuring will be allocated between senior lenders and
Dr. Alfred Schefenacker, subject to the 5.0 percent equity of
the bondholders, if agreed.

"Our clients trust in our products and the work of every
Schefenacker employee," said Dr. Schefenacker, the Group's
owner.  "The support of our customers and our new investors give
this company a chance to play a significant role in the future
automotive parts sector."

The financial restructuring plan has been unanimously approved
by the Executive Board and the Supervisory Board of Schefenacker
AG and has the support of the Groups' lenders and major
customers.

"With this agreement our stakeholders have undertaken to
implement a solution as soon as possible. This is important so
that the company can move on and fully focus on the operational
improvements that will be key for the future development of the
business," added Stephen Taylor.

                       About Schefenacker

Headquartered in Hampshire, United Kingdom, Schefenacker Plc
(fka Schefenacker AG) -- http://www.schefenacker.com/--
develops, produces and supplies rear vision systems, lighting
systems and sound systems to the world's automotive
manufacturers.  The company employs 7,900 people and operates 27
sites in Australia, China, France, Hungary, India, Japan, Korea,
Mexico, Romania, Slovenia, Spain, the United Kingdom, and the
U.S.A.

                          *     *     *

As of Feb. 15, Schefenacker carries these ratings:

Moody's:

   -- Long-Term Corporate Family: Ca2
   -- Bank Loan Debt: Caa2
   -- Senior Subordinate Debt: C
   -- Outlook: Stable

Standard & Poor's:

   -- Long-Term Foreign Issuer Credit: D
   -- Long-Term Local Issuer Credit: D


SCHEFENACKER AG: Moody's Junks Rating on Proposed Restructuring
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded the Corporate Family Rating
of Schefenacker AG to Ca from Caa2, the rating on the company's
senior subordinated notes to C from Ca and the rating for the
senior secured facility from Caa1 to Caa2.  The outlook has been
changed to stable.  The last rating action was on Sept. 14,
2006.

The Rating action is based on the company's announcement that a
financial restructuring has been agreed with senior lenders and
the shareholder, but is still pending the approval of the
bondholders.  As this restructuring proposal indicates an
aggregate recovery rate of below 50%, and also taking into
account the interest deferral since Nov. 2, 2006, on the senior
secured facility and the announcement that interests on the
subordinated notes due on Feb. 12 will not be paid, the
Company's Corporate Family Rating was downgraded to Ca from
Caa2.

The rating for the EUR205-million senior secured facility has
consequently also been downgraded, but given its seniority in
the capital structure and likely significant higher recovery
rate, the downgrade was limited to one notch to Caa2 from Caa1.
The downgrade of the senior subordinated notes from Ca to C
reflects the low recovery prospects of the notes, as indicated
by the offer of a 5% equity stake in the company in exchange for
their debt claim as part of the financial restructuring program.

The stable outlook takes into account that positive rating
developments mainly depend on recovery rates, which would need
to be substantially above expectations for current ratings.

Moreover, when Moody's applies its European Loss Given Default
methodology after March 19 it is anticipated that the current
notching of the relative debt instruments within the
Schefenacker capital structure will remain unchanged, provided
that a 50% family recovery rate still applies.

Downgrades:

   * Schefenacker AG

     -- Corporate Family Rating, Downgraded to Ca from Caa2

     -- Senior Subordinated Regular Bond/Debenture, Downgraded
        to C from Ca

     -- Senior Secured Bank Credit Facility, Downgraded to Caa2
        from Caa1

Outlook Actions:

   * Schefenacker AG

     -- Outlook, Changed To Stable From Negative

Based in the United Kingdom, Schefenacker is a leading private
Tier 1 automotive supplier of rear vision systems, lighting
systems and a Tier 2 supplier of sound systems.

For the 12 months ended Dec. 31, 2005, Schefenacker generated
revenues of EUR930.4 million.

LOCKO FINANCE: Moody's Assigns B2 Rating to Participation Notes
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a rating of B2 to the Loan
Participation Notes to be issued on a limited recourse basis by
Locko Finance Plc for the sole purpose of funding a loan to
Locko-bank (Russia).  The outlook for the rating is stable.

The holders of the notes will be relying for repayment solely
and exclusively on the ability of Locko-bank to make payments
under the loan agreement.  Locko-bank is currently rated B2/Not
Prime for long- and short-term foreign- and local-currency
deposits, and E+ for financial strength, all with stable
outlook.  Moody's noted that the amount and the tenor of the
Notes have yet to be determined.

The obligations of Locko-bank to make payments under the loan
agreement will rank at all times at least pari-passu with the
claims of all other unsecured creditors of the borrower, except
for those whose claims are preferred by any bankruptcy,
insolvency, liquidation or similar laws of general application.
Moody's noted that Russia is, in general, a country with
individual depositor preference, which may reduce the recovery
rates for the bondholders, especially if such deposits were to
represent a sizeable proportion of the bank's liabilities in the
event of liquidation.

According to the terms and conditions of the loan agreement,
Locko-bank must maintain a minimum total capital adequacy ratio
and Tier 1 capital adequacy ratio calculated in accordance with
BIS guidelines of 12% and 8%, respectively, while its exposure
to any single borrower, which is not a related party, shall not
exceed 25% of the net asset value.  The bank must comply with a
number of other covenants such as negative pledge, limitations
on mergers, disposals and transactions with affiliates.

The loan agreement, the Notes and the trust deed will be
governed by and construed in accordance with English Law, and
the Courts of England will have exclusive jurisdiction to settle
any dispute arising from or connected with the loan agreement.

Locko-bank is incorporated in Moscow, Russia, and reported total
consolidated assets of US$500 million in accordance with IFRS as
of Sept. 30, 2006.  Locko Finance p.l.c. is an orphan special
purpose vehicle domiciled in Ireland that was established for
this transaction.  Its shares are held on trust for charity by
Deutsche Trustee Company Limited (Ireland).


LOCKO FINANCE: Fitch Puts B-/RR4 Rating to Upcoming Debt Issue
--------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings assigned Locko Finance Plc's upcoming issue of
limited recourse loan participation notes expected ratings of
Recovery 'RR4' and Long-term 'B-'.

The notes are to be used solely for financing a loan to Locko-
Bank, which is rated Issuer Default 'B-', Short-term 'B',
Individual 'D', Support '5' and National Long-term 'BB+'.  The
Outlooks on the Issuer Default and National Long-term ratings
are Stable.  The final ratings are contingent upon receipt of
final documentation conforming materially to information already
received.

Locko Finance Plc, an Ireland-domiciled public limited company,
will only pay noteholders principal and interest received from
Locko.  The Issuer will charge certain of its rights and
interests under the loan agreement to Deutsche Trustee Company
Limited for the benefit of noteholders under a trust deed.  The
Issuer's claims under the loan agreement will rank at least
equally with those of other senior unsecured creditors of Locko,
save those whose claims are preferred by any bankruptcy,
insolvency, liquidation or similar laws of general application.
Under Russian law, the claims of retail depositors rank above
those of other senior unsecured creditors.  At end-nine months
2006, retail deposits accounted for 23% of Locko's total
liabilities, according to the bank's reviewed IFRS accounts.

The loan agreement contains covenants restricting mergers and
disposals by Locko and its material subsidiaries, as well as
certain transactions between the bank and its affiliates.  It
also contains a cross default clause and a 'negative pledge'
clause, the latter of which allows for up to 20% of gross
customer loans to be securitized by Locko 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.  Locko also commits to maintaining minimum total and
Tier 1 Basel capital adequacy ratios of 12% and 8%,
respectively, and a maximum ratio of exposure to any single
borrower to net assets of 25%.

Locko is a Moscow-based bank with 18 outlets, focusing primarily
on SME lending.  The bank is owned by several individuals - none
of whom has a stake of over 20% - the IFC and East Capital
Group.  The input of the foreign shareholders may result in more
ambitious growth in the medium term, with the aim of improving
market share and franchise strength.


NOMOS CAPITAL: Fitch Gives B+ Rating to Loan Participation Notes
----------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings assigned Nomos Capital Plc's US$200 million
8.1875% issue of limited recourse loan participation notes due
2010 final ratings of Recovery 'RR4' and Long-term 'B+'.

The notes are to be used solely for financing a loan to Russia-
based Nomos Bank, which is rated Issuer Default 'B+' with a
Stable Outlook, Short-term 'B', Individual 'D', Support '5' and
National Long-term 'A-' with a Stable Outlook.

As of Sept. 30, 2006, Nomos is one of the 20 largest Russian
banks with US$4 billion of total assets.  The franchise is
focused primarily on serving corporates operating in the
manufacturing, energy and mining sectors, although a broadening
of the corporate franchise and retail lending growth are also
being pursued.  The bank is the third largest bullion trader in
Russia and has strong positions in fixed-income trading.  Nomos
is ultimately controlled by seven individuals, of whom four are
owners of the financial and industrial group ICT.

ALITALIA SPA: Italy Taps Bain & Co. as Industrial Adviser
---------------------------------------------------------
The Italian government has appointed Bain & Co. as its
industrial adviser for the sale of its 30.1% stake in national
carrier Alitalia S.p.A., Bloomberg News reports.

Bain & Co. will aid the government in drafting the conditions
that bidders will be asked to include in their industrial plans
for Alitalia, Italy's finance ministry told Bloomberg News.

In a TCR-Europe report on Feb. 2, about 11 bidders submitted
their non-binding offers to acquire Italy's 30.1% stake in
Alitalia.  Most of the bidders are private equity funds hoping
that Alitalia would recover via massive restructuring.

According to the Italian Treasury, bidders include:

   1) UBM, a unit of Unicredito Italiano S.p.A.,

   2) Texas Pacific Group Europe LLP,

   3) AP Holding S.p.A., owned by AirOne chief Carlo Toto;

   4) a consortium of Management & Capitali S.p.A., Cerberus
      European Investments LLC, ELQ Investors Ltd. and
      Lefinalc S.p.A.

      Paolo Alazraki.

The Economy Ministry, advised by Merrill Lynch and Chiomenti
Studio Legale, is reviewing the bids to choose qualified
candidates for the next phase of the tender.

The deadline for submission of non-binding offers for the
Italian government's 30.1% stake in national carrier Alitalia
S.p.A. ended at 6:00 p.m. on Jan. 29.

In a TCR-Europe report on Jan. 3, the government launched the
bidding process for its stake in Alitalia on Dec. 29, 2006.
Italy's Ministry of Economy and Finance invited interested
parties to submit a non-binding offer for around 30.1% to 49.9%
of Alitalia's capital and 1,207,147,404 convertible bonds of the
carrier's 7.5% 2002-2010 debenture loan.  The sale will take
place through a competitive procedure involving direct
negotiations with potential buyers.

According to the Ministry, potential buyers will be selected
based on the economic terms of the offers received and an
analysis of the business plans.  The Ministry will also examine
the compatibility of the offers and business plans with the
Alitalia's restructuring, development and relaunch objectives.

The Ministry also outlined mandatory commitments for the buyer
to:

   -- keep at least a 30.1% stake in Alitalia until the business
      plan is successfully carried out:

   -- safeguard Alitalia's national identity; and

   -- guarantee the quality and quantity of services offered and
      coverage of the territory.

ALCATEL-LUCENT: In Talks With Dutch Unions on Further Job Cuts
--------------------------------------------------------------
Alcatel-Lucent has met with representatives of the Dutch Works
Council and unions to begin discussing how the company's
international synergy plans will impact employee positions in
the Netherlands.  Alcatel-Lucent has also informed its employees
about these preliminary discussions.

In April 2006, when the merger between Alcatel and Lucent
Technologies was announced, the companies stated the primary
driver of the merger was to generate growth in revenues and
earnings while yielding synergies.  On Feb. 9, the company
provided an update on its integration efforts.

It believes the combination of the original synergy plan and
additional cost reductions will enable it to realize a total of
EUR1.7 billion pre-tax cost savings within three years. The cost
reductions will entail globally about 12,500 reductions to the
workforce over the next three years.

The topics presented to the works council are a starting point
within the legal frameworks set out for consultations with
employees and unions prior to any actions.

"We have undertaken a thorough and thoughtful review of our
operations in the Netherlands, and we anticipate that we need to
reduce our workforce with 140-180 people over the next 24
months," said Coert de Boer, Managing Director for Alcatel-
Lucent in The Netherlands.  "These are difficult decisions, and
we will be sensitive to employees, treat them with the dignity
and respect they deserve.  We will do everything we can to
minimize the impact on employees and provide them with resources
for a smooth transition, either within our organization or at
other companies.  We have a number of long-term projects in the
Netherlands for which we need additional people. Our growth
ambitions imply furthermore that we expect to create new jobs in
new areas that we will explore.  It speaks for itself that we
will first look for re-education opportunities of our existing
staff and then will start recruiting. We will work closely
together with the Works Council and the unions in the
Netherlands on these matters."

Currently, Alcatel-Lucent employs some 700 people in the
Netherlands, in a variety of positions.

The forced reductions reflect duplications in positions and
rationalization in product and solution portfolio as well as
ongoing cost-efficiency efforts for the Company.  Together with
the Dutch Works Council and unions, Alcatel-Lucent will offer
outplacement services for affected employees and make every
effort to support those employees whose positions will
disappear.

These discussions are at an early stage and it would be
premature, the company said, to comment further.

NORSKE SKOGINDUSTRIER: To De-Merge Non-Core Real Properties
-----------------------------------------------------------
Norske Skogindustrier ASA has initiated a process for de-merging
most of its real property unrelated to paper production.

Since the resulting property company will be a wholly owned

The most important properties include Klosterøya in Skien, the
head office with surrounding land in Baerum outside Oslo, and a
farming and residential area in Trondheim.

This proposal will be considered by the board of directors at
its meeting on March 1, and is subject to final approval by the
annual general meeting on April 12.

NORSKE SKOGINDUSTRIER: To Invest NOK330 Million Into Skogn Unit
---------------------------------------------------------------
Norske Skogindustrier ASA is to invest NOK330 million at its
Norske Skog Skogn mill in mid-Norway in order to boost its
competitiveness and further improve the quality of the paper it
produces.

The project will cut annual electricity consumption at the mill
by 250 GWh or 17%.  State-owned company Enova is contributing
NOK50 million to the work.

"Energy saving measures are one of our top priorities,"
Christian Rynning-Tonnesen, chief executive of Norske Skog,
said.  "I'm very pleased that the government, through Enova, is
helping to make this project profitable.  The changes being made
are optimal because they not only reduce energy consumption and
costs at Norske Skog Skogn but also improve paper quality."

The project will kick off this year, and is due to be completed
by the end of 2009.  Norske Skog Skogn's production is currently
based on paper pulp from wood and recovered paper.  Once the
work has been done, the proportion of wood will be slightly
reduced and replaced by cheaper fillers and increased use of
recovered paper.  That will enhance the mill's competitiveness
while meeting customer requirements for a larger proportion of
recycled fiber in their newsprint.

                        About Norske Skog

Headquartered in Lysaker, Norway, Norske Skogindustrier ASA --
http://www.norskeskog.com/-- manufactures paper and pulp.  It
produces long and short fiber sulphate pulp, newsprint, bleached
Kraft paper and others.  The Company owns and operates paper
mills in Europe, Asia, Australia, Africa and North and South
America.  Norske has posted three consecutive annual net losses
of EUR116.3 million in 2004, EUR315.4 million in 2003, and
EUR849 million in 2002.

LOCKO-BANK: Fitch Puts B-/RR4 Ratings to Loan Financing
-------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings assigned Locko Finance Plc's upcoming issue of
limited recourse loan participation notes expected ratings of
Recovery 'RR4' and Long-term 'B-'.

The notes are to be used solely for financing a loan to Locko-
Bank, which is rated Issuer Default 'B-', Short-term 'B',
Individual 'D', Support '5' and National Long-term 'BB+'.  The
Outlooks on the Issuer Default and National Long-term ratings
are Stable.  The final ratings are contingent upon receipt of
final documentation conforming materially to information already
received.

Locko Finance Plc, an Ireland-domiciled public limited company,
will only pay noteholders principal and interest received from
Locko.  The Issuer will charge certain of its rights and
interests under the loan agreement to Deutsche Trustee Company
Limited for the benefit of noteholders under a trust deed.  The
Issuer's claims under the loan agreement will rank at least
equally with those of other senior unsecured creditors of Locko,
save those whose claims are preferred by any bankruptcy,
insolvency, liquidation or similar laws of general application.
Under Russian law, the claims of retail depositors rank above
those of other senior unsecured creditors.  At end-nine months
2006, retail deposits accounted for 23% of Locko's total
liabilities, according to the bank's reviewed IFRS accounts.

The loan agreement contains covenants restricting mergers and
disposals by Locko and its material subsidiaries, as well as
certain transactions between the bank and its affiliates.  It
also contains a cross default clause and a 'negative pledge'
clause, the latter of which allows for up to 20% of gross
customer loans to be securitized by Locko 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.  Locko also commits to maintaining minimum total and
Tier 1 Basel capital adequacy ratios of 12% and 8%,
respectively, and a maximum ratio of exposure to any single
borrower to net assets of 25%.

Locko is a Moscow-based bank with 18 outlets, focusing primarily
on SME lending.  The bank is owned by several individuals - none
of whom has a stake of over 20% - the IFC and East Capital
Group.  The input of the foreign shareholders may result in more
ambitious growth in the medium term, with the aim of improving
market share and franchise strength.

CLOCK FINANCE: Moody's Puts Low-B Ratings to CHF105.6-Mln Notes
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned these provisional ratings to
six classes of asset backed credit linked notes to be issued by
Clock Finance No.1 B.V.:

   -- CHF132-million Class A Asset-Backed Credit Linked Notes
      due 2015: (P)Aaa;

   -- CHF93.6-million Class B Asset-Backed Credit Linked Notes
      due 2015: (P)Aa2;

   -- CHF98.4-million Class C Asset-Backed Credit Linked Notes
      due 2015: (P)A2;

   -- CHF91.2-million Class D Asset-Backed Credit Linked Notes
      due 2015: (P)Baa3;

   -- CHF65.3-million Class E Asset-Backed Credit Linked Notes
      due 2015: (P)Ba3; and

   -- CHF40.3-million Class F Asset-Backed Credit Linked Notes
      due 2015: (P)B3.

Moody's has not assigned a provisional rating to CHF153.60-
million Class G Asset-Backed Credit Linked Notes due 2015.  In
addition, the structure includes a super senior piece of
CHF4,125.6-million where no credit protection has been sought.
Class A to Class E Asset-Backed Credit Linked Notes due 2015 are
expected to be issued in EUR, but as of today the exchange rate
CHF- EUR is not yet known and the corresponding amounts in CHF
have been listed.

Clock Finance No.1 B.V. is the first SME securitization by
Credit Suisse using Clock Finance No.1 B.V. The objective of the
credit protection buyer, Credit Suisse, is to achieve economic
and regulatory capital relief under Basel II for the portfolio
of SME and corporate loans.  The portfolio consists of 1,977
reference obligations relating to small and medium sized
companies and some corporates domiciled in Switzerland for an
amount of CHF4,800,000,000.00.  Under a Credit Default Swap,
Credit Suisse will pay fixed payments to Clock Finance No. 1
B.V. and in return Credit Suisse will be hedged for losses
occurring in the reference portfolio up to an amount equal to
the total initial amount of notes issued by the SPV.  In order
to hedge its obligations under the Credit Default Swap, Clock
Finance No. 1 B.V. will issue Class A to Class G Notes and
invest the note proceeds in CHF and Euro denominated cash
deposits.  The credit-linked notes have been structured to be
redeemed in bullet on the scheduled maturity date on a
sequential basis.  The transaction includes a six-year
replenishment period during which new reference obligations can
be added to the reference portfolio subject to compliance with
the reference entity eligibility criteria, the reference
portfolio eligibility criteria and the replenishment suspension
trigger

According to Moody's, the ratings take account of, among other
factors, the subordination of the respective lower tranches and
the strong replenishment criteria. Portfolio replenishment is
also possible only as long as the losses are below
CHF153.6-million (3.5% of initial reference portfolio) and all
the notes' ratings are within the Moody's expected loss limit or
the expected loss is the same or better than before
replenishment.  Moody's also assessed the credit quality of the
unrated reference portfolio obligors by mapping Credit Suisse's
internal credit scoring ratings using historical data, the
results of the internal Masterscale's validation and the 1-year
rating transition matrices observed for the period 1996 to 2003.

Moody's issues provisional ratings in advance of the final sale
of securities, but these ratings only represent Moody's
preliminary credit opinion.  Upon a conclusive review of the
transaction and associated documentation, Moody's will endeavor
to assign definitive ratings to the Notes.  A definitive rating
may differ from a provisional rating.  Moody's will disseminate
the assignment of any definitive ratings through its Client
Service Desk.

The ratings address the expected loss posed to investors by the
legal final maturity of the notes.  Moody's ratings address only
the credit risks associated with the transaction.  Other non-
credit risks have not been addressed, but may have a significant
effect on yield to investors.


CLOCK FINANCE: S&P Assigns Initial B Ratings to Class F Notes
-------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its preliminary
credit ratings to the asset-backed floating-rate notes to be
issued by CLOCK Finance No. 1 B.V., a special purpose entity.

This is Credit Suisse's first CLO of SMEs.  The purpose of this
transaction is to transfer to investors the credit risk
associated with a pool of payment obligations under framework
lending agreements between Credit Suisse and certain Swiss SMEs.

This transaction does not reference single-loan agreements, but
instead references Credit Suisse's total exposures to certain
Swiss SMEs under framework lending agreements, entered into in
accordance with the bank's commercial client lending strategy.

Framework agreements outline the general terms and conditions
for the type and volume of exposures the bank is granting, which
typically comprises a composition of current accounts,
mortgages, and term loans.

CLOCK FINANCE: Fitch Rates CHF105.6-Mln Notes at Low-B
------------------------------------------------------
Fitch assigned expected ratings to Clock Finance No. 1 B.V.'s
issue of CHF520.8 million of floating-rate notes as follows:

   -- CHF132,000,000 Class A: 'AAA'
   -- CHF93,600,000 Class B: 'AA'
   -- CHF98,400,000 Class C: 'A'
   -- CHF91,200,000 Class D: 'BBB+'
   -- CHF65,300,000 Class E: 'BB+'
   -- CHF40,300,000 Class F: 'B'

Some notes will be denominated in euros based on a conversion
rate that will be determined and fixed upon closing.  The Class
G notes, totaling CHF153,600,000, are not rated.  The final
ratings are contingent upon the receipt of final documents
conforming to information already received.

The transaction is a partially funded synthetic collateralized
debt obligation referencing a portfolio of Swiss small- and
medium-sized enterprise obligors.  The initial reference
portfolio consists of 1,977 SME reference entities that borrowed
under credit lines granted by the private banking division of
Credit Suisse subject to framework agreements and securitized in
whole or in part with a total securitization balance of
CHF4.8 billion.

The expected ratings of the notes are based on the credit
quality of the reference portfolio, the credit enhancement, the
quality of the collateral, the strength of the swap counterparty
and the transaction's sound financial and legal structure.  The
credit quality of the reference portfolio has been determined
using a mapping approach.  Fitch deems the average quality of
the initial reference portfolio to be equivalent to a 'BB+'
rating. Credit enhancement for the Class A to F notes is
provided by subordination.  The expected ratings address the
timely payment of interest and the ultimate repayment of
principal.

The transaction will replenish over the entire transaction
horizon on a "not-to-worsen" basis until February 2013 subject
to certain replenishment criteria and a replenishment suspension
trigger.  The replenishment criteria include single obligor
concentration limits based on CS's internal ratings on an
entity-by-entity basis, a weighted average internal rating
covenant and concentration limits to maintain regional and
industrial diversification.  Any replenishment has to comply
with the Fitch VECTOR test.

At closing, CS will enter into a credit default swap with the
issuer.  Under the CDS, the issuer will sell credit protection
on the reference entity portfolio to CS, which includes accrued
interest and enforcement costs.  The issuer will hedge itself
against the same risk by issuing credit-linked notes denominated
in euros and Swiss francs. Realised losses will be borne first
by the most junior piece (Class G notes), and then by Class A to
F notes in reverse order of seniority.

Losses will be determined at the latest three months after the
credit event based on recovery estimates. As a result, CS will
receive protection payments fairly quickly compared to other
structures where such payments are only made once the recovery
process has been completed. To reflect early payments, a
discount factor will apply.

ADVANCED MARKETING: NBN Files Bid to Buy PGW Distribution Rights
----------------------------------------------------------------
National Book Network Inc. made a competing and superior bid to
purchase Publishers Group West Inc.'s rights under its
distribution agreements with various publishers, Rich Publishing
LLC disclosed in its objection to the proposed sale to Perseus
Books LLC and Client Distribution Services Inc.

As reported in the TCR-Europe on Feb. 1, Advanced Marketing
Services Inc. and its debtor-affiliates asked the U.S.
Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware for authority to
sell Publishers Group West's rights under its distribution
agreements with various publishers to Perseus Books and Client
Distribution Services Inc.

The Court set a hearing on Feb. 12 to consider the Debtors'
request to sell PGW's rights under its distribution agreements
with various publishers to Perseus Books and CDS.

                           NBN's Offer

NBN offered to pay 85 cents on the dollar for the claims of all
PGW publishers, Rich Publishing said.

The NBN offer was announced, in part, by Richard Freese,
president of PGW, who observed that all PGW publishers remain
"free to enter into an offer with NBN," according to Rich
Publishing.

NBN is a sales, marketing, and distribution company servicing
North American and overseas publishers of commercial fiction and
nonfiction books and audio titles.  Founded in 1986, NBN is a
subsidiary of The Rowman & Littlefield Publishing Group Inc.,
one of North America's largest academic publishers.  NBN is
headquartered in Lanham, Maryland.

                     Parties Object to Sale

Seven parties filed objections to the proposed sale of PGW's
rights under its distribution agreements to Perseus Books and
CDS:

(1) Wells Fargo

Wells Fargo Foothill Inc., contends that the proposed buyer
protections are inappropriate under the circumstances since the
proposed sale results in no cash or other monetary compensation
to the Debtors or the estate.  The break-up fee will come out
from the Debtors' pocket.

Wells Fargo further notes that (i) Perseus' administrative claim
must be junior to Wells Fargo's administrative claim since Wells
Fargo was granted a superpriority administrative claim enjoying
priority over all other unsecured obligations, and (ii)
procedures to protect PGW's accounts receivable must be
established.

(2) Carus

Carus Publishing Group wants the order authorizing the sale to
reflect that PGW is authorized to assume its distribution
agreements with those publishers that have entered into
publisher agreements with Perseus and other successful bidder,
which assumption will occur prior to their assignment.  Carus
further asks the Court to hold that no payments made prepetition
to consenting publishers pursuant to assumed agreements can be
recovered under Section 547 of the Bankruptcy Code or otherwise
by PGW.

(3) Creditors Committee

The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors argues that the
Debtors' request fails to allow adequate time for the
postpetition solicitation of other purchasers and for
competitive bidding.

Although productive negotiations are ongoing among the
purchasers, the Debtors, and the Committee regarding the terms
of the Transaction Documents, the Committee informs the Court
that:

    * it objects to the requirement that Advanced Marketing
      Services Inc., be responsible for the Administrative
      Amount because AMS should not be obligated to incur any
      expense that is the responsibility of PGW;

    * the Transaction Documents must specify that CDS is
      responsible for all costs related to the transition
      involving the PGW Sale under the Transition Services
      Agreement; specify the exact amounts of PGW's and AMS's
      costs for which the Purchasers will be responsible; and
      set forth a dispute resolution process;

    * the Transaction Documents fail to provide that Perseus
      Books guarantee all of the obligations of CDS under the
      agreements; and

    * the proposed Purchaser Protection is inappropriate under
      the circumstances.

The Committee reserves its right to withdraw its objections in
whole, or in part, as issues are resolved.

(4) Elsevier

Elsevier Inc., as successor-in-interest to CMP Media LLC,
objects to the sale insofar as PGW seeks to assume an executory
contract with CMP and assign that contract to the proposed
purchasers without complying with the assumption, assignment and
cure requirements.  Elsevier also objects to the sale insofar as
it purports to transfer title to books owned by Elsevier, but
are currently held by PGW as a bailee.

(5) Rich Publishing

According to Rich Publishing LLC, it objects to the sale insofar
as there is a superior offer outstanding for the same PGW
assets.  Rich Publishing wants the Court to postpone for at
least two weeks, the hearing on the request until the NBN offer
process has developed and other competing bids, if any, are
presented.

(6) LearningExpress

LearningExpress, LLC, objects to the PGW Sale to the extent that
it seeks to assume and assign its Distribution Agreement with
PGW without providing for (i) a cure of all pre- and post-
Petition Date defaults of PGW under the Agreement, and (ii)
adequate assurance of future performance by a proposed
purchaser, including with respect to its Loan Agreement with
PGW.

LearningExpress notes that it is willing to consider alternate
proposals, including from PGW, Perseus Books, or possibly other
potential purchasers.

Society for the Study of Native Arts and Sciences, doing
business as North Atlantic Books, asserts that the sale unfairly
prejudices publishers, like itself, whose contracts will not be
assigned to the proposed purchasers.

Any benefits seems to inure only to creditor-publishers whose
agreements are being assigned to the Purchasers at the expense
of those publishers whose agreements will be rejected, NAB says.

ADVANCED MARKETING: Seeks Nod for PGW Employee Retention Program
----------------------------------------------------------------
Advanced Marketing Services Inc. and its debtor-affiliates
previously asked the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of
Delaware for authority to sell Publishers Group West Inc.'s
rights under its distribution agreements with various publishers
to Perseus Books LLC, and Client Distribution Services Inc.

The Debtors now ask the Court for authority to implement a PGW
Employee Retention Program, which provides bonuses to certain
PGW key employees in providing transition services in connection
with the aforementioned Perseus transaction -- the PGW
Transition Services Bonus Plan.

To preserve the Debtors' ability to effect the Perseus
transaction, including the provision of the transition services,
PGW must retain key employees in numerous departments, including
sales and merchandise, logistics and accounting, Mark D.
Collins, Esq., at Richards, Layton & Finger, PA, at Wilmington,
Delaware, relates.

According to Mr. Collins, the Debtors have determined that the
total anticipated cost of the PGW Employee Retention Program is
US$750,850.  The PGW Employee Retention Program applies to
around 117 employees, but none of the PGW Key Employees are
officers of the Debtors.

Pursuant to the PGW Transition Services Bonus Plan, the PGW Key
Employees are eligible to receive bonuses in the range of US$303
to US$45,900, based on:

    (1) a consideration of their compensation in effect upon
        their approval for participation in the PGW Transition
        Services Bonus Plan;

    (2) employment position classification; and

    (3) continued employment with PGW on July 31.

The total cost of the bonuses payable to PGW Key Employees under
the PGW Employee Retention Program will be paid by Perseus, Mr.
Collins notes.  Hence, the direct cost to the PGW estate that
would otherwise be incurred to retain its key employees to
maintain operations pending a going concern sale will be paid by
the buyer of PGW's assets.  Mr. Collins adds that the
implementation of the PGW Key Employee Retention Program is
contingent on the Court's approval of the Perseus transaction.

Mr. Collins asserts that the Debtors considered a number of
factors in designing the PGW Employee Retention Program in
conjunction with Perseus, including industry standards, PGW's
historic practices, and the nature of its business.  The
potential costs associated with the loss of employees would be
far in excess of the cost of the PGW Employee Retention Program.

The successful consummation of the Perseus transaction, in turn,
relies on retaining employees with the knowledge and skill of
PGW's business to perform the transition services, Mr. Collins
asserts.  PGW's employees, and in particular the PGW Key
Employees, are critical to performing the transition services.

"The loss of key employees would lead to further work force
attrition as employee morale would deteriorate with the
departures and concomitant increased work demands on remaining
employees," Mr. Collins says.

BOOKWORLD: Book Chain Brings In Tenon Recovery as Administrators
----------------------------------------------------------------
Book retailers Bookworld, Bargain Books and bw! appointed Tenon
Recovery as administrators on Feb. 13.

Growing competition from internet retailers and supermarkets had
seriously affected profitability and the business was finding it
increasingly difficult to maintain a large network of high
street stores.

The companies' joint administrator, Tom MacLennan, managing
director of Tenon in Scotland and head of the corporate recovery
practice, will continue to trade the business while searching
for a buyer.

"Bookworld, Bargain Books and bw! are long-established brands in
the U.K. book retailing sector.  The business has almost single
handedly developed the market for high street discount book
selling.  While competition from the internet and supermarkets
has triggered the administration, a turnover of GBP30 million
clearly indicates that there is strong demand for discount
stores on the high street," Mr. MacLennan disclosed.

"We will be actively searching for a buyer for the business and
will continue to trade.  However, we will be closing eight
stores and announcing 44 redundancies with immediate effect.  A
further four stores will embark upon closing down sales with
immediate effect, closing at the end of February with a further
21 redundancies at that stage.  We will work closely with
appropriate agencies to minimize the impact on those affected
and have already begun to market the business for sale.  We
would urge interested parties to make contact with us as soon as
possible," he added.

The stores being closed immediately are located in Dumfries,
Greenock, Stirling, Inverness, Edinburgh Princes Mall, Harrow,
Tunbridge Wells and Romford.  Those being closed at the end of
February are located in Bristol, Perth, Manchester and Glasgow
(Gordon Street).

Tenon Recovery -- http://www.tenongroup.com/-- provides
accounting and business advice to owner-managed and private

employed 397 staff.  It has a turnover of GBP30 million.


BRITISH AIRWAYS: New Baggage Charging Policy Takes Effect
---------------------------------------------------------
British Airways Plc has revised its excess baggage charging
policy to simplify existing rules.

The new baggage rules took effect on Tuesday, Feb. 13.

Currently, more than 98% of customers travel within their free
luggage allowance.  The majority of these customers check in no
more than one item of luggage per person.  For these customers,
there is no change.

This includes all travelers to the USA, the Caribbean, Nigeria,
Mexico and Brazil.  Customers for these destinations will still
be able to check in two pieces of luggage free of charge.  The
free 23kg allowance for economy-class customers to other
destinations will be limited to a single item of luggage.

BA has absolutely no intention of discriminating against
passengers who cannot comfortably carry a 23kg bag.  Where it is
clear that a passenger cannot manage one bag, the airline will
let them check in an additional bag (or more) provided the total
weight is within the 23kg limit.

The airline's free luggage allowances, for both carry-on and
checked-in luggage, remain among the most generous in the
aviation industry.  Many other airlines offer smaller free
allowances and charge for additional items such as skis, golf
bags or other sports equipment.

The change was disclosed of in a press release last June.
Details have been on the ba.com website since, and issued to
travel agents and frequent flyers.

For the 2% of customers who wish to exceed their free
allowances, BA has decided to simplify the charges they pay to
make them easier to understand.

At present charges vary according to weight, route and class of
travel.  The airline is replacing these with three simple rates
for bags additional to the free allowance:

   -- GBP30 per extra bag on domestic flights,
   -- GBP60 per extra bag on European flights, and
   -- GBP120 per extra bag on longhaul flights.

Customers will get a 30% discount on these rates if they pre-pay
online.  The changes will not come into full effect until
September 2007.

In the vast majority of instances, the new policy will be
cheaper or comparable for customers who wish to fly with excess
baggage on top of their free allowances.

IRE-TEX GROUP: Investors Draw Up Multimillion-Rescue Package
------------------------------------------------------------
A consortium of investors is working on a multi-million-euro
rescue package for Irish packaging company Ire-Tex Group Ltd.
that could save 170 remaining jobs, Ian Kehoe and Simon Carswell
write for The Sunday Business Post Online.

According to the report, Paul Burke, a majority shareholder, and
other existing shareholders agreed to extend further financing
to Ire-Tex while the company is also in discussions with an
outside investor over a potential deal.

Pearse Farrell, a Dublin accountant, was appointed interim
examiner of the three companies in the Ire-Tex Group in the High
Court.

Mr. Farrell, together with directors and shareholders of Ire-
Tex, is in the process of devising a scheme of arrangement aimed
at rationalizing the company's operations and introducing a
series of cost-cutting measures, The Sunday Business Post
relates.

The company's suppliers have already given their assurances to
Mr. Farrell that they will continue trading with the business.

Ire-Tex went into examinership following a decision by Dell to
terminate a long-running contract under which Ire-Tex provides
polythene packaging services to the computer firm.

In 2004, the packaging company incurred a EUR3.2-million loss as
turnover fell from EUR19 million to EUR15 million.

Headquartered in Leixlip, Co Kildare, Ireland, Ire-Tex Group
Ltd.-- http://www.iretex.com/-- manufactures a range of
protective packaging using mediums such as corrugate, foam and
timber either flat pack or fully assembled along with a wide
range of "Off the shelf" products such as pallet wrap, padded
mailers, bubble wrap and roll foam, to name but a few.  The
company also operates in Northern Ireland, the Czech Republic,
Malaysia, China and the U.S.

LUXFER HOLDINGS: S&P Lowers Ratings to SD on Debt-to-Equity-Swap
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its long-term
corporate credit rating on U.K.-based Luxfer Holdings PLC to
'SD' from 'CC', following the completion of a recapitalization
plan, including a debt-for-equity swap.  At the same time, the
ratings on Luxfer's 10.125% notes due in 2009 were lowered to
'D' from 'C' and withdrawn.

The ratings were removed from CreditWatch, where they were
placed with negative implications on Oct. 16, 2006, following an
announcement that Luxfer, a manufacturer of gas cylinders,
magnesium alloys, and zirconium chemicals, had reached an
agreement in principle with the majority of existing
bondholders for the recapitalization and debt-for-equity swap.

The rating action follows an announcement that the agreement is
now legally effective.

Under the recapitalization plan, Luxfer's remaining outstanding
GBP131 million notes were cancelled and the company is released
by noteholders from its obligation under these notes. In
exchange for these notes, existing noteholders received common
equity and new notes. New noteholders will now have a 87% stake
in the company.

"Standard & Poor's views the completion of such exchange offers
as tantamount to default because the total value of the
securities offered is less than the originally contracted
amount," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Werner Staeblein.

"The rating on the company may be revised pending an examination
of its debt-servicing abilities.  We expect to complete this
process within the next four to six weeks," said Mr. Staeblein.

PLATINUM FUND: Went Into Liquidation After Losing Court Action
--------------------------------------------------------------
Platinum Investment Fund was forced to liquidate after
shareholders refused to pay performance fees to the company's
former manager, Richard Steele, who was ousted four years ago
but remains to be a major shareholder, following the loss of a
court battle, The Herald reports.

However, manager Eric McAuslan endeavors to attract shareholders
into its successor open-ended fund with a "free till August"
offer, under which the company will not charge a fee until
Aug. 1, The Herald states.

The fund, which has collected only about GBP1 million since it
was launched in 2006, aims to draw up to GBP30 million from the
investment trust's backers, The Herald relates.

According to the report, the fund's investment process has seen
a 31% return in 2006, and 83% in the last three years.  Compared
with 22% and 76% for the best offshore funds, this makes the
hybrid "Platinum" 10th out of 334 all-sector U.K. funds over one
year and 36th over three years.

The fund was also the second-best performing U.K. fund in
December, both onshore and offshore, The Herald adds.

Over the past six months, Mr. McAuslan has been selling a
portfolio of about 20 stocks, many of them big positions in
small companies, in a liquidation facilitated by the buoyant
market, The Herald states.

"We had to take our time over the last quarter of the year," Mr.
McAuslan says.  "The secret was not to lose value in the process
of raising cash.  With over 7% of the trust, we (Platinum Fund
Managers) would not have been very pleased either.  But the
stocks we were selling were actually performing very well."

Mr. McAuslan says 10 stocks can expand against risk according to
portfolio theory, but fund statistics have proven that 20 to 25
stocks can work, The Herald says.

However, Platinum shies away from technology, commodities, and
energy stocks, the Herald relates.

"If something goes wrong with the oil and gas company, the well
is dry, there is not a lot you can do about it," Mr. McAuslan
explains.  "If something technical goes wrong, we don't really
have any idea what the problem is.  We do like some balance
sheet strength and cash flow."

SATVISION PLC: Enters Liquidation Due to Cash Flow Problems
-----------------------------------------------------------
Satvision Plc went into liquidation on Feb. 5 after its major
customers failed to pay outstanding bills to the company, James
Wilmore writes for The Publican.

Les Vigerstaff, former managing director Satvision, said the
company suffered from a difficult cash flow problem in December
2006 and January 2007.  The company, which sells, leases and
hires plasma screens and projectors to pubs, has appointed
Simmonds & Co. as liquidators.

                        Alarmed Customers

Satvision's customers, mainly pubs using or leasing the
company's equipment, were alarmed whether they could still
receive support from the firm.

Ron de Vere, who holds Satvision license for his Hare & Hounds
and Fox & Goose pubs, said he was worried about the support he
would receive, The Publican reports.

"We have screens, projectors and boxes in my pubs that I've
bought," Mr. de Vere told The Publican.  "Servicing is my main
concern.  We show a lot of sports, so what if something goes
wrong with them?  What do I tell my customers?"

Anita Craig, who holds a license for her Barrel pub in Stoke-on-
Trent, expressed concerned whether she would have to continue
with direct debit payments and whether she could continue
placing adverts on her screen, The Publican adds.

Mr. Vigerstaff, however, assured licensees that Satvision's
service would be provided by another company, Jpod Ltd.

"Our customers in the licensed trade will be given back-up," Mr.
Vigerstaff told The Publican.  "But we have no engineers at this
moment in time and there will be a period of two or three weeks
while we are sorting ourselves out."

Sativsion's creditors will convene on Feb. 19 to receive a
report from the company's liquidators.

Headquartered in Stockport, United Kingdom, Satvision Plc --

solutions in Satellite and Audio-Visual Communications.


SCHEFENACKER AG: Unveils New Financial Restructuring Scheme
-----------------------------------------------------------
Schefenacker AG, now known as Schefenacker Plc, has agreed a
financial restructuring plan with its senior lenders and
shareholder.

Binding heads of terms have been executed that propose that the
financial indebtedness of the Schefenacker Group, currently
standing at around EUR450 million is to be replaced by a new
financial package consisting of a new senior revolving facility
of EUR25 million, a senior term facility of EUR170 million, and
a new mezzanine facility of around EUR110 million.

                             Bonds

The bondholders will be asked to convert their debt into 5.0
percent of the restructured equity of the holding company of the
Schefenacker Group.

"The financial restructuring will be achieved without any
disruption to the operational activities of any group company,"
Stephen Taylor, Schefenacker's Chief Restructuring Officer,
said.  "If the bondholders agree to this they will retain a
stake in a recapitalized and profitable international mirrors
business."  Mr. Taylor also confirmed that the coupon on the
bonds due on Feb. 12 would not be paid.

                     Divestiture of Lighting

As part of the financial restructuring, stakeholders have agreed
to refocus the business on its core mirror business and separate
the German lighting division into a standalone business in
anticipation of a potential sale.  Separately there will be a
controlled wind down of the U.S. lighting business on a solvent
basis that minimizes disruption to OEM supplies. In 2006 the
lighting division accounted for around 22% of Group sales.

In anticipation of the sale of lighting, the relatively small
residual mirror business in Germany will be managed as part of
the European Business Unit, headquartered in Portchester, U.K.
and the ultimate holding company will henceforth be Schefenacker
Plc, also registered in the U.K.

As a result of this financial restructuring, the company's
annualized cash outflow to meet the interest burden will be more
than halved.  In addition the group will receive EUR55-million
fresh money. The holding company equity in the Group post-
restructuring will be allocated between senior lenders and
Dr. Alfred Schefenacker, subject to the 5.0 percent equity of
the bondholders, if agreed.

"Our clients trust in our products and the work of every
Schefenacker employee," said Dr. Schefenacker, the Group's
owner.  "The support of our customers and our new investors give
this company a chance to play a significant role in the future
automotive parts sector."

The financial restructuring plan has been unanimously approved
by the Executive Board and the Supervisory Board of Schefenacker
AG and has the support of the Groups' lenders and major
customers.

"With this agreement our stakeholders have undertaken to
implement a solution as soon as possible. This is important so
that the company can move on and fully focus on the operational
improvements that will be key for the future development of the
business," added Stephen Taylor.

                       About Schefenacker

Headquartered in Hampshire, United Kingdom, Schefenacker Plc
(fka Schefenacker AG) -- http://www.schefenacker.com/--
develops, produces and supplies rear vision systems, lighting
systems and sound systems to the world's automotive
manufacturers.  The company employs 7,900 people and operates 27
sites in Australia, China, France, Hungary, India, Japan, Korea,
Mexico, Romania, Slovenia, Spain, the United Kingdom, and the
U.S.A.

                          *     *     *

As of Feb. 15, Schefenacker carries these ratings:

Moody's:

   -- Long-Term Corporate Family: Ca2
   -- Bank Loan Debt: Caa2
   -- Senior Subordinate Debt: C
   -- Outlook: Stable

Standard & Poor's:

   -- Long-Term Foreign Issuer Credit: D
   -- Long-Term Local Issuer Credit: D


SCHEFENACKER AG: Moody's Junks Rating on Proposed Restructuring
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded the Corporate Family Rating
of Schefenacker AG to Ca from Caa2, the rating on the company's
senior subordinated notes to C from Ca and the rating for the
senior secured facility from Caa1 to Caa2.  The outlook has been
changed to stable.  The last rating action was on Sept. 14,
2006.

The Rating action is based on the company's announcement that a
financial restructuring has been agreed with senior lenders and
the shareholder, but is still pending the approval of the
bondholders.  As this restructuring proposal indicates an
aggregate recovery rate of below 50%, and also taking into
account the interest deferral since Nov. 2, 2006, on the senior
secured facility and the announcement that interests on the
subordinated notes due on Feb. 12 will not be paid, the
Company's Corporate Family Rating was downgraded to Ca from
Caa2.

The rating for the EUR205-million senior secured facility has
consequently also been downgraded, but given its seniority in
the capital structure and likely significant higher recovery
rate, the downgrade was limited to one notch to Caa2 from Caa1.
The downgrade of the senior subordinated notes from Ca to C
reflects the low recovery prospects of the notes, as indicated
by the offer of a 5% equity stake in the company in exchange for
their debt claim as part of the financial restructuring program.

The stable outlook takes into account that positive rating
developments mainly depend on recovery rates, which would need
to be substantially above expectations for current ratings.

Moreover, when Moody's applies its European Loss Given Default
methodology after March 19 it is anticipated that the current
notching of the relative debt instruments within the
Schefenacker capital structure will remain unchanged, provided
that a 50% family recovery rate still applies.

Downgrades:

   * Schefenacker AG

     -- Corporate Family Rating, Downgraded to Ca from Caa2

     -- Senior Subordinated Regular Bond/Debenture, Downgraded
        to C from Ca

     -- Senior Secured Bank Credit Facility, Downgraded to Caa2
        from Caa1

Outlook Actions:

   * Schefenacker AG

     -- Outlook, Changed To Stable From Negative

Based in the United Kingdom, Schefenacker is a leading private
Tier 1 automotive supplier of rear vision systems, lighting
systems and a Tier 2 supplier of sound systems.

For the 12 months ended Dec. 31, 2005, Schefenacker generated
revenues of EUR930.4 million.

TITAN EUROPE: S&P Puts Low-B Ratings on Watch Positive
------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services placed its credit ratings on
the class C, D, and E notes issued by Titan Europe 2004-1 PLC,
and on the class D and E notes issued by Titan Europe 2005-1 PLC
on CreditWatch with positive implications.

The transactions closed in December 2004 and July 2005,
respectively. Titan Europe 2004-1 was originally backed by five
loans on properties located in the U.K.  Titan Europe 2005-1 was
backed by six loans on properties located in Germany.

The CreditWatch placements follow an initial review of the most
recent transaction information received by Standard & Poor's
from the transactions' servicer Hatfield Philips International
Ltd. This analysis showed that the likelihood of a positive
rating action has increased in both transactions due to loan
prepayments at the January 2007 interest payment dates.

Titan Europe 2004-1, which was originated by Credit Suisse, saw
the One America Square loan prepay, which was the largest loan
in the transaction at closing.  Two loans prepaid in the Titan
Europe 2005-1 transaction: the largest loan, and the fourth-
largest loan.

Both of the transactions have previously seen ratings on several
classes of notes raised because of earlier prepayments. T he
latest prepayments and scheduled amortization have further
improved the levels of credit enhancement available to the
relevant classes and the LTV ratios for all classes.  At the
same time, the pool balance of Titan Europe 2004-1 has been
reduced to 14% of the original balance, and the pool balance of
Titan Europe 2005-1 has been reduced to 8% of the original
balance.

                           *********

Monday's edition of the TCR delivers a list of indicative prices
for bond issues that reportedly trade well below par.  Prices
are obtained by TCR editors from a variety of outside sources
during the prior week we think are reliable.  Those sources may
not, however, be complete or accurate.  The Monday Bond Pricing
table is compiled on the Friday prior to publication.  Prices
reported are not intended to reflect actual trades.  Prices for
actual trades are probably different.  Our objective is to share
information, not make markets in publicly traded securities.
Nothing in the TCR constitutes an offer or solicitation to buy
or sell any security of any kind.  It is likely that some entity
affiliated with a TCR editor holds some position in the issuers'
public debt and equity securities about which we report.

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
conferences@bankrupt.com/

Each Friday's edition of the TCR includes a review about a book
of interest to troubled company professionals.  All titles are
available at your local bookstore or through Amazon.com.  Go to
http://www.bankrupt.com/books/to order any title today.
