GENERAL MOTORS: Inks US$1-Bln Global Networking Deal with AT&T
--------------------------------------------------------------
General Motors Corp. has awarded AT&T Inc. a five-year global
networking contract worth nearly US$1 billion.  The agreement is
one of the largest commercial contracts in AT&T history.

Under the agreement, AT&T will deliver next-generation
telecommunications capabilities that will enable GM to further
integrate its global resources.  In addition, GM named AT&T a
strategic information technology supplier to support its third-
generation information technology business model, which is
designed to ensure that GM's IT suppliers are working as one
around the world.  In that role, AT&T will provide network-
integration management covering all aspects of GM's worldwide
telecommunications infrastructure, including voice and data
applications and systems support.

As part of the agreement, AT&T will be responsible for managing
the performance of key regional telecommunications providers
around the world in addition to network management
responsibility for participating telephone companies to drive
consistent, uniform IT service delivery and support.  In
addition, AT&T will continue to collaborate with GM's
Information Systems and Services organization to support its
global business strategy.

The contract renews and expands an existing strategic global
relationship in which AT&T provides GM with a global Virtual
Private Network solution, integrating GM locations around the
world.  AT&T's solution supports a full range of capabilities
including local, long distance, global voice mail, conferencing,
high speed Internet access and telecommunications business-
continuity services.

The network, based on Multiprotocol Label Switching technology,
provides a standardized technology infrastructure that will
enable GM to integrate networks, applications and devices and to
evolve into a single streamlined, communications platform based
on Internet Protocol with consistent standards and capabilities.  
As a result, employees across the enterprise will have the same
telecommunications tools, such as common voice mail and
conferencing capabilities, and will enjoy the same quality of
service whether they're sitting in the corporate headquarters in
Detroit or in a manufacturing facility in Australia.

"AT&T's networking expertise and global reach make it uniquely
qualified to meet the telecommunications needs of a global,
multinational company like ours," said Ralph Szygenda, group
vice president and chief information officer of General Motors.  
"This agreement is a strategic step toward strengthening
telecommunications across our global enterprise.  It ensures
that we have the basic infrastructure in place to give GM
employees anywhere in the world the ability to collaborate
online in real time on engineering, manufacturing, design and
supply-chain.  It is expected to enable increased productivity
and collaboration and to maximize GM's global network."

"GM's vision for global integration using an IP-based technology
platform and uniform service standards around the world managed
by trusted technology partners is a bellwether for multinational
corporations," said Ron Spears, executive vice president of AT&T
Global Business Sales.  "We are excited to be a strategic
information technology supplier to GM and are anxious to deliver
the benefits of next-generation telecommunications services."

TDC A/S: Earns DKK1.29 Billion in Fourth Quarter Ended Dec. 31
--------------------------------------------------------------
TDC A/S released its unaudited financial results for the fourth
quarter ended Dec. 31, 2006.

TDC posted DKK1.29 billion in net income against DKK12.26
billion in net revenues for the fourth quarter ended
Dec. 31, 2006, compared with DKK4.38 billion in net income
against DKK12.32 in net revenues for the same period in 2005.

At Dec. 31, 2006, the Group's balance sheet showed DKK80.77
billion in total assets and DKK77.19 billion in total
liabilities, resulting in a DKK3.57 billion stockholders'
equity.

                       Outlook for 2007

Revenue is expected to be on level with revenue in 2006. The
decrease in the landline business and the divestment of Bite
will be offset largely by continued growth in broadband and
mobile activities.

Net income is expected to decrease 5% - 10% in 2007, due to the
full year impact of the change in the capital structure, partly
compensated for by more efficient operations.

A full-text copy of the Group's financial report for the fourth
quarter ended Dec. 31, 2006, is available for free at
http://ResearchArchives.com/t/s?1a49

                         About TDC A/S

As reported in the TCR-Europe on Jan. 25, Fitch Ratings says it
does not expect the intended sale by TDC A/S of its Lithuanian

Default rating of 'BB-' or the ratings of TDC's and NTC

BRIGHTPOINT INC: Acquisition Spurs S&P's Negative Outlook
---------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services affirmed its 'BB-' corporate
credit rating on Plainfield, Indiana-based Brightpoint Inc. and
revised the outlook to negative from stable.  The actions
followed the company's recent report that it has agreed to
acquire Dangaard Telecom A/S for around US$308 million in stock.

"The outlook revision reflects a more leveraged financial
profile and potential integration issues," said Standard &
Poor's credit analyst Martha Toll-Reed.

The rating on Brightpoint reflects the company's fairly narrow
product base, significant but improving supplier concentration,
and relatively modest operating margins.  These factors are
partially offset by Brightpoint's good market position and
increased geographic, supplier, and customer diversity.

Brightpoint is a leading distributor and provider of value-added
logistics services in the fragmented and highly competitive
market for wireless communications products.

VALASSIS COMMUNICATIONS: Earns US$51.3 Mln in Year Ended Dec. 31
----------------------------------------------------------------
Valassis Communications Inc. earned US$51.3 million of net
income on US$1 billion of revenues for the year ended Dec. 31,
2006, compared with US$95.4 million of net income on US$1.1
billion of revenues for the year ended Dec. 31, 2005.

The significant decrease in net income is primarily due to the
negative effects of the intense competitive pricing pressure in
the Free-standing Inserts (FSI) segment and lower volumes and
competitive pricing pressure in the Neighborhood Targeted
segment.  

Results for 2006 also include after-tax charges of US$24.6
million related to the pending ADVO Inc. acquisition and related
litigation which was settled in December 2006 and US$1.4 million
related to the close-down of both the French agency business and
eSettlement business unit of NCH Marketing Services Inc.

The decrease in revenues is mainly attributable to the decline
in Free-standing Inserts segment revenues, which continues to be
negatively impacted by an intense competitive pricing
environment.  Valassis also experienced a significant decline in
the Neighborhood Targeted segment.

Cost of sales was US$789.6 million in 2006 compared to
US$836.3 million in 2005.  Gross margin in 2006 was 24.3%,
compared to 26.1% in 2005.  The continued decrease in gross
margin percentage from 2006 compared to 2005 was primarily the
result of competitive pricing issues in the FSI segment.  
Additionally, the gross margin percentage was negatively
impacted by a change in mix resulting in a larger percentage of
sales from lower margin products.

Selling, general and administrative expenses increased in 2006
to US$151.4 million versus US$142.7 million in 2005, primarily
due to US$16.1 million in legal and professional expenses
related to the merger agreement and related litigation between
Valassis and ADVO incurred during 2006 as well as US$3.6 million
in expenses related to the close-down of the French agency
business and eSettlement business unit of NCH.

These expenses were partly offset by restructuring charges of
US$6.9 million in 2005 related to the full integration of the
components of the Household Targeted business segment, which
resulted in the elimination of PreVision as a stand-alone
entity, right-sizing of coupon-clearing operations primarily in
Europe and other efficiency-related headcount reductions.

Interest expense was US$24.7 million in 2006, compared to
US$10.9 million in 2005.  The increase in expense is due largely
to US$13.8 million in charges related to the termination of a
US$400 million interest-rate swap contract and premiums paid for
two separate US$400 million interest-rate swap contracts.  These
contracts were entered into as a bridge hedge for a portion of
the acquisition financing related to the pending ADVO
acquisition.

Included in other income for 2004 is a US$6.5 million gain due
to the settlement of a property claim related to a fire at the
Corby, England facility.

Income tax expense represents 38.6% of earnings before income
taxes in 2006 compared to 34.8% in 2005 and 35.8% in 2004. The
increase in the effective tax rate is the result of the majority
of the US$16.1 million in legal and professional expenses
incurred in 2006 related to the litigation between Valassis and
ADVO, which was settled in December 2006, not being deductible.

At Dec. 31, 2006, the company's balance sheet showed
US$801.4 million in total assets, US$633.8 million in total
liabilities, and US$167.6 million in total stockholders' equity.

Full-text copies of the company's consolidated financial
statements for the year ended Dec. 31, 2006, are available for
free at http://researcharchives.com/t/s?1a0a

                      Acquisition of ADVO Inc.

On July 5, 2006, Valassis Communications, Inc. signed a Merger
Agreement with ADVO Inc. a Delaware corporation, and Michigan
Acquisition Corp., a wholly owned subsidiary of Valassis.  Under
the Merger Agreement, Michigan Acquisition Corp. will merge with
ADVO.  After the merger, ADVO will become a wholly owned
subsidiary of Valassis.

Valassis filed suit on Aug. 30, 2006, seeking to rescind its
US$1.3 billion merger agreement with ADVO based on fraud and
material adverse changes.

On Dec. 19, 2006, the companies agreed to dismiss, with
prejudice, the lawsuit between the parties.  Pursuant to the
amended Merger Agreement, the company will acquire all of the
outstanding shares of common stock of ADVO for US$33.00 in cash
per share.  

The company's obligations under the amended Merger Agreement are
not conditioned on obtaining financing and there are no
conditions to close other than the approval of ADVO's
stockholders and the absence of any injunction or other legal
restraint to the merger.

                      Sources and Uses of Cash

Cash and cash equivalents totaled US$52.6 million at Dec. 31,
2006, versus US$64.3 million at Dec. 31, 2005.  

Cash flow from operating activities was US$49.8 million in 2006,
compared to US$116.2 million in 2005.

Net cash used in investing activities was US$50.6 million
primarily as a result of US$30.5 million in net purchases of
auction-rate securities and capital expenditures of US$16.3
million.  This compared with US$133,000 net cash provided by
investing activities in 2005.

Cash used in financing activities was US$12.6 million for 2006,
primarily driven by repayment of US$14.4 million of debt.  This
compared with net cash used in financing activities of
US$135.4 million in 2005.  The company suspended its share
repurchase program in February 2006, therefore cash used in
financing activities was significantly lower in 2006 than in
2005.

At Dec. 31, 2006, Valassis' debt was US$259.9 million, which
consisted of US$100.0 million of its 6 5/8% Senior Notes due
2009 and US$160 million of Senior Convertible Notes due 2033.

As reported in the Troubled COmpany Reporter-Europe on Feb. 19,
Moody's Investors Service assigned a B3 rating to Valassis
Communications Inc.'s proposed US$590-million of fixed and
floating rate senior unsecured notes due 2015.  

Moody's Feb. 12, 2007 rating action on Valassis contemplated the
issuance of US$590-million of junior debt in conjunction with
the acquisition of ADVO and the company's existing ratings are
not affected by the issuance of the new senior unsecured notes.  
Valassis' Corporate Family rating is B1 and the rating outlook
remains stable.


VALASSIS COMM: S&P Puts B- Rating on US$590-Mln Unsecured Notes
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its 'B-' rating to
Valassis Communications Inc.'s proposed US$590 million senior
unsecured notes.  

The notes are rated two notches below the 'B+' corporate credit
rating on Valassis, reflecting the sizable amount of secured
debt in the company's proposed capital structure.  Proceeds from
the proposed notes would be used to partially finance Valassis'
US$1.2 billion acquisition of ADVO, including the refinancing of
about US$125 million in debt at ADVO.
     
The 'B+' corporate credit rating on Valassis was affirmed, and
the rating outlook is stable.  Also, Standard & Poor's affirmed
all other ratings on Valassis, including its 'BB-' rating on
Valassis' existing US$160 million senior unsecured convertible
notes due 2033 and US$100 million senior unsecured notes due
2009.  These issues are rated one notch above the corporate
credit rating, reflecting springing liens that are expected to
secure both issues upon the close of the proposed senior secured
facility.  The rating on these issues remains on CreditWatch
with negative implications, pending the close of the company's
proposed credit facility, at which time Standard & Poor's
expects to affirm them.  Pro forma for proposed debt issuance,
Valassis had US$1.5 billion in lease-adjusted debt as of
December 2006.

"The ratings reflect high levels of pro forma leverage and
challenges that Valassis will face as it reverses trends of
declining profitability in each of its and ADVO's respective
businesses," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Emile
Courtney.

AAREAL BANK: Moody's Lifts Ba2 Rating to Baa3 on EUR14-Mln Notes
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service upgraded these classes of Notes of
Global Commercial Three, a synthetic CMBS issuance from Aareal
Bank AG:

   -- EUR95-million Class A2 Floating Rate Credit Linked Notes
      to Aaa from Aa1;

   -- EUR51-million Class B Floating Rate Credit Linked Notes
      to Aaa from Aa2;

   -- EUR60.5-million Class C Floating Rate Credit Linked Notes
      to Aa2 from A2;

   -- EUR51.5-million Class D Floating Rate Credit Linked Notes
      to A3 from Baa2; and

   -- EUR14-million Class E Floating Rate Credit Linked Notes
      to Baa3 from Ba2.

At the same time Moody's has affirmed the Aaa rating of Class
A1+.

The upgrade of Class A2, B, C, D and E Notes is based upon:

   (i) an increase in credit enhancement due to the
       prepayment/repayment of loans in the reference pool;

  (ii) the absence of credit events reported since closing in
       October 2004; and

(iii) the current performance of the portfolio.

Due to prepayments/repayments the reference pool amount has
reduced from EUR1.2 billion at closing to EUR489 million as of
the fourth quarter 2006.  All repayments/prepayments have been
allocated sequentially.  This has increased the credit
enhancement available for all classes of notes.  The weighted
average DSCR of the transaction is 2.1x and the weighted average
reported LTV of the pool has decreased from 63.1% at closing to
49.1% as of the fourth quarter 2006.

Moody's notes that the diversity in the pool has decreased and
there is also increased concentration risk, which exposes mainly
the more junior classes to credit risk.  The number of loans in
the reference pool has reduced from 50 at closing to 25.  The
five largest exposures contribute now 42.6% of pool balance
compared to 26.3% at closing.

DAIMLERCHRYSLER AG: Chrysler CEO LaSorda Contacts Employees
-----------------------------------------------------------
Chrysler Group Chief Executive Tom LaSorda has sent an e-mail
message to employees saying that a "frenzy of rumors" circulated
that DaimlerChrysler AG is seeking partners and strategic
options for the group.

In his message posted on a media Web site, Mr. LaSorda said,
"The board of management has a duty to consider all options, but
while this process is ongoing, the board -- including myself --
can't comment on developments because of strict legal
requirements."

He added that, "It may take weeks or months before official
comments can be made on some issues."

He stressed that: "Meanwhile, our job is very clear.  Our
mission is to produce great cars and trucks, to take care of our
customers and to restore profitability ...  Whatever fork in the
road we may take, we first have to make sure we're on the road -
- and the recovery and transformation plan is that road."

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Feb. 15, 2007,
Chrysler Group disclosed of a three-year Recovery and
Transformation Plan that will result in an employee reduction of
13,000 people from 2007 to 2009 and US$4.5 billion financial
improvements by 2009.

                       About DaimlerChrysler

Headquartered 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.

CENTRAL PARKING: Earns US$9.3-Mln for Q1 Ended Dec. 31, 2006
------------------------------------------------------------
Central Parking Corp. filed its first fiscal quarter financial
statements ended Dec. 31, 2006, with the Securities and Exchange
Commission on Feb. 9, 2007.

Net earnings, which include property-related gains and
discontinued operations for the first quarter of fiscal 2007,
were US$9.3 million, compared with US$18 million in the year
earlier period.

Total revenues for the first fiscal quarter were US$281.7
million compared with US$272.5 million in the first quarter of
fiscal 2006.  Excluding reimbursed management expenses, revenues
in the first quarter of fiscal 2007 were US$160.8 million
compared with US$160 million in the prior year period.

The company reported that operating earnings before property-
related gains for its first fiscal quarter ended Dec. 31, 2006,
increased to US$15.4 million compared with US$7.7 million earned
in the first quarter of the previous fiscal year.

Earnings from continuing operations, which include property-
related gains for the first quarter of fiscal 2007, totaled
US$8.4 million compared with US$16.4 million in the year-earlier
period.

Pre-tax property-related gains totaled US$400,000 in the first
quarter of fiscal 2007 compared with US$22.9 million in the
first quarter of last year.

"The on-going execution of our strategic plan continues to drive
improvements in operating results," President and Chief
Executive Officer Emanuel J. Eads said.

"The first quarter of fiscal 2007 marks the fourth consecutive
quarter we have recorded substantial, year-over-year gains in
operating earnings.

"Same store sales increases of 5.8% and reduced costs improved
margins in our leased and owned segment to 11.4%, compared with
8.7% in the first quarter of last year.

Management contract margins improved to 62% compared with 61.3%
in the first quarter of 2006 while general and administrative
costs decreased by US$3.3 million, or 15.7%.

"We continue to make good progress in executing other aspects of
our strategic plan as well.  Our Operational Excellence
initiative, which is focused on increasing profits at the
location level, gained momentum during the quarter as we
expanded the program to Los Angeles and Washington, D.C., and
initiated a 'jumpstart' program to introduce Operational
Excellence concepts company-wide.

"Our efforts to capitalize on the burgeoning downtown
residential market were rewarded with three new contracts: a
long-term lease to operate a 360 space garage serving the
Millennium Center in Chicago, management agreements to operate a
400 space garage at 1500 Locust in Philadelphia, and a 388 space
garage in Wilmington, Del.

"We also have had success across other market segments, as
evidenced by the award of a multiple facility contract by Oregon
Health & Science University in Portland, Ore.

"This contract, which became effective Oct. 1, 2006, includes a
garage, two surface lots, two valet operations, and a shuttle
operation.

"We also continue to add profitable, new business in our
international markets.  The most significant recent example is
the addition of a lease to operate a 900-space facility in
Calgary, Alberta.

"Our focus on the high-end hospitality market continues to yield
positive results as we signed leases to operate the Marriott San
Diego and the Hyatt La Jolla.

"We also signed a contract to manage Phoenix Plaza, one of the
largest office developments in Phoenix, Ariz.," Mr. Eads
concluded.

The company has made the determination that due to the strategic
review process it announced on Nov. 28, 2006, it will not hold a
conference call to discuss first quarter results.

At Dec. 31, 2006, the company had US$789.03 million in total
assets, US$373.48 million in total liabilities, and
US$415.55 million in total shareholders' equity.

CENTRAL PARKING: KCPC Holdings Acquires Firm for US$733 Million
---------------------------------------------------------------
Central Parking Corp. entered into an agreement and plan of
merger with KCPC Holdings Inc., a company formed by affiliates
of Kohlberg & Company LLC, Lubert-Adler L.P., and Chrysalis
Capital Partners L.P.

Under the terms of the merger agreement, Central Parking's
shareholders will receive US$22.53 per share in cash,
representing a premium of approximately 30.8% over Central
Parking's closing share price on Nov. 27, 2006, the day before
the Company announced that it had engaged The Blackstone Group
L.P. to assist it in evaluating strategic alternatives.

Central Parking's Board of Directors, following the unanimous
recommendation of a Special Committee composed entirely of
independent directors, has approved the merger agreement and
also will recommend approval by Central Parking's shareholders.

"I believe this transaction is very exciting for our
shareholders," Monroe J. Carell, Executive Chairman and founder
of Central Parking, said.  "This Company has been so important
to me for many years.  It has been a real joy to work with many
talented employees and our business associates. I believe the
Company will continue to prosper under the new ownership."

"We are pleased to be entering into this transaction, which
provides important benefits to our shareholders, clients,
employees, and other stakeholders," Emanuel J. Eads, Central
Parking's president and chief executive officer, said.  "This
agreement represents a strong endorsement of our strategic plan
and the significant progress we have made in executing the plan.  
With the full backing of private equity partners who recognize
our growth potential and share our vision for the future, we
will be in an even stronger position to deliver outstanding
service to our management clients, landlords and parking
customers."

KCPC Holdings, Inc. has received equity and debt financing
commitments totaling US$903 million, and the closing is not
subject to a financing contingency.  Closing of the transaction
will be completed in the second calendar quarter of 2007. The
merger is subject to the approval of Central Parking's
shareholders, requisite regulatory approvals and customary
closing conditions.  Mr. Carell, his family and related
entities, who are collectively the largest shareholder of
Central Parking, have entered into voting agreements to vote in
favor of the merger agreement unless the merger agreement is
terminated or materially amended.

The Blackstone Group served as exclusive financial advisor to
the Company in connection with the transaction and provided the
Special Committee with an opinion that the consideration to be
received by Central Parking's shareholders is fair from a
financial point of view.

CENTRAL PARKING: Moody's Places Ba3 CFR on Merger Agreement
-----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service placed the Ba3 Corporate Family Rating
and B2 rating on the convertible trust issued preferred
securities of Central Parking Corp. on review for possible
downgrade following the company's announcement that it entered
into a definitive agreement to be acquired by a consortium of
private investment funds.

Under the terms of the merger agreement, Central Parking's
common equity shareholders will receive US$22.53 per share in
cash or about US$745 million.

The transaction has been approved by the Board of Directors of
Central Parking based on the unanimous recommendation of a
special committee of the board consisting of independent
directors.  The merger is subject to the approval of Central
Parking's shareholders, requisite regulatory approvals and
customary closing conditions.  The chairman of the company, his
family and related entities, who collectively own 47% of the
common stock of Central Parking, have entered into voting
agreements to vote in favor of the merger agreement unless the
merger agreement is terminated or materially amended.

Central Parking may terminate the merger agreement under certain
circumstances, including if its board of directors determines in
good faith that it has received a superior proposal, and
otherwise complies with certain terms of the merger agreement.
In connection with such termination, the company must pay a fee
of US$22.4 million to the equity sponsors.  If the merger
agreement is terminated because the equity sponsors fail to
obtain sufficient financing, then a US$30 million payment will
be due to the company.

Moody's affirmed the Baa3 rating on the US$299-million senior
secured credit facility of Central Parking since the merger
agreement provides that the credit facility will be repaid in
connection with the closing of the buyout.  The merger agreement
also provides that at the effective time of the merger, each
outstanding share of the Trust Issued Preferred Securities
issued by Central Parking Finance Trust, a statutory business
trust and wholly-owned subsidiary of Central Parking, shall
remain outstanding and shall thereafter be convertible at the
election of the holder of the TIPS into an amount equal to the
product of the common stock merger consideration times the
number of shares of company common stock into which the TIPS
could have been converted at the effective time. Any TIPS, which
remain outstanding after the buyout, may be notched to two
notches below the Corporate Family Rating.

Moody's review will focus on the expected capital structure,
liquidity position and operating strategy of Central Parking
upon completion of the buyout transaction, including any
disposition strategies for owned real estate.  Moody's expects
key credit metrics to deteriorate substantially if the buyout
transaction is consummated.  Therefore, a multiple notch
downgrade of the Corporate Family Rating is possible if the
transaction is financed primarily with debt.  The review will be
completed when a transaction is completed or substantially
completed.

Moody's placed these ratings on review for possible downgrade:

   -- US$78-million 5.25% convertible trust issued preferred
      securities (issued by the Central Parking Finance Trust),
      rated B2 (LGD 6, 93%);

   -- Corporate family rating, Ba3; and

   -- Probability of default rating, Ba3.

Moody's affirmed these ratings:

   -- US$225-million senior secured revolving credit facility      
      due 2008, rated Baa3 (LGD 2, 15%)

   -- US$74 million senior secured term loan facility due 2010,
      rated Baa3 (LGD 2, 15%)

Central Parking Corp., headquartered in Nashville, Tennessee, is
a leading provider of parking and transportation-related
services.  As of Dec. 31, 2006, the Company operated more than
3,100 parking facilities containing around 1.5 million spaces at
locations in 37 states, the District of Columbia, Canada, Puerto

----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its preliminary
credit ratings to the EUR313.25 million floating-rate notes to
be issued by Kintyre CLO I PLC.  At the same time, Kintyre will
issue EUR36.75 million of unrated notes.
  
At closing, Kintyre will issue the notes, the proceeds of which,
net of any upfront costs and expenses, will be used to acquire a
portfolio of senior secured loans, second-lien loans, mezzanine
obligations, high-yield obligations, and synthetic securities.
  
The portfolio will be managed by Plemont Portfolio Managers
Ltd., as portfolio manager, and RBS CDO Fund and Investment
Group as investment adviser.  It is RBS CFIG's third leveraged
loan CLO to be rated by Standard & Poor's.  The transaction is

the closing date.
  
Kintyre may include up to 25% of noneuro assets.  The currency
mismatch between these assets and the entirely euro-denominated
liabilities will be mitigated through a series of perfect asset
swaps that will be entered into by the issuer and the
counterparty on the closing date and during the life of the
transaction.  The counterparty must be rated 'A-1+'.

SCOTTISH RE: AM Best Continues Review After Published Loss
----------------------------------------------------------
A.M. Best Co. has commented that the financial strength, issuer
credit and debt ratings of Scottish Re Group Limited (Cayman
Islands) [NYSE: SCT] and its operating subsidiaries remain
unchanged and continue to be under review with positive
implications following the announcement by Scottish Re that its
net loss for fourth quarter and full year 2006 was US$233.8
million and US$376.7 million, respectively.

The loss for fourth quarter 2006 was driven primarily by a
number of write-downs including goodwill, deferred acquisition
costs, reinsurance recoverable and deferred tax assets.  
Moreover, Scottish Re's operating earnings from its North
American reinsurance segment were adversely affected by higher
mortality and unfavorable lapse experience.

The results for 2006 continue to reflect the difficulties
Scottish Re has with earlier tax planning strategies, weak
accounting systems and higher expenses associated with
collateral financing and interest costs as a result of rating
downgrades and liquidity concerns.

Despite the reported loss in fourth quarter 2006, which was
significantly below expectations, A.M. Best is maintaining
Scottish Re's ratings based on the belief that MassMutual
Capital Partners LLC and Cerberus Capital Management L.P. will
move forward with their previously announced intent to invest
US$600 million into Scottish Re.  In addition, Scottish Re is
amending the original terms of the agreement to provide for
additional indemnification to these investors of up to US$68.5
million should mortality experience deteriorate below a
predetermined level over the next three years.  A.M. Best
expects the transaction to close in second quarter 2007.  The
capital investment will be a major step toward improving
Scottish Re's liquidity posture and should enable it to resume
meaningful new business activities.

Scottish Re's statutory results for its onshore operating
companies are not yet public.  Although the main items driving
the reported net loss are primarily GAAP related and thus not
expected to materially impact U.S. statutory results, A.M. Best
will revisit Scottish Re's ratings should statutory earnings and
capital levels be reported significantly below A.M. Best's
expectations.  Furthermore, any deterioration in the perceived
commitment of the acquiring entities by A.M. Best would result
in a downgrading of the company's ratings.

A.M. Best last rated Scottish Re last Nov. 28, 2006. The same
ratings continue to be under review after the announcement of
the Scottish Re's net loss for last year.

Nov. 28, 2006 Ratings:

The FSRs of B (Fair) and the ICRs of "bb+" remain under review,
and the implications have been revised to positive from negative

SCOTTISH RE: 4Q Earnings Report Cues Fitch to Lower Ratings
-----------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has downgraded Scottish Re Group Ltd.'s (NYSE:
SCT) ratings:

  Scottish Re Group Ltd.:

   -- Issuer Default Rating to 'B+' from 'BB';

   -- Preferred Stock to 'B-' from 'B+'; and

   -- 'RR6' Recovery Rating Assigned.

  Operating subsidiaries:

   -- Insurer Financial Strength to 'BB+' from 'BBB'.

All ratings remain on Rating Watch Evolving.

The ratings action follows Scottish Re's release of earnings for
the fourth quarter of 2006, which highlight the business and
operating challenges and uncertainties that the Company
continues to face.  Excluding one-time items, run-rate operating
earnings capacity is significantly below Fitch's ratings
expectations.  Of note was the significant impact of higher than
estimated retrocession costs, as well as adverse mortality and
lapse experience.  Additional items such as lower new business
profits, and higher financing and collateral costs can be
attributed to the Company's liquidity issues and ratings
downgrades in the summer and fall of 2006.

The rating action reflects Fitch's heightened concern that the
pending agreement with MassMutual Capital Partners LLC and
Cerberus Capital Management, L.P. or MassMutual/Cerberus could
be called off due to further deterioration in Scottish Re's
business position and earnings profile as discussed in the
above-mentioned earnings release.

The ratings remain on Rating Watch Evolving reflecting the
pending MassMutual/Cerberus agreement, which is expected to
result in a new equity investment into the company of US$600
million.  The successful close of that agreement would alleviate
near-term concerns for collateral financing in 2007, is expected
to have a positive impact on Scottish Re's business prospects
and franchise, and may result in an upgrade in the ratings
assigned to SCT and its affiliates sometime shortly following
the close of the transaction.

If the transaction does not close, Fitch expects that the
ratings of the holding company would be downgraded to a level no
higher than 'CC' and the IFS ratings would be downgraded to no
higher than 'CCC'.

These ratings have been downgraded and remain on Rating Watch
Evolving:

  Scottish Annuity & Life Insurance Company (Cayman) Limited

     -- IFS downgraded to 'BB+' from 'BBB'
  
  Scottish Re (U.S.) Inc.

     -- IFS downgraded to 'BB+' from 'BBB'

  Scottish Re Limited

     -- IFS downgraded to 'BB+' from 'BBB'

  Scottish Re Group Limited

     -- IDR downgraded to 'B+' from 'BB'; and

     -- 7.25% US$125 million non-cumulative perpetual preferred
        stock downgraded to 'B-' from 'B+'; 'RR6' Assigned.

According to Dow Jones, those facing possible trial include:

   -- Gianfranco Boni, former BPI CFO; and
   -- Antonio Fazio, former Bank of Italy governor.

The request for trial, Dow Jones adds, marks the end of a two-
year probe involving Italian finance, which resulted in Mr.
Fazio's resignation and Mr. Fiorani's short jail detention.

BANK CASPIAN: Fitch Affirms B+ IDR with Stable Outlook
------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings affirmed Kazakhstan-based Bank Caspian's ratings
at Issuer Default 'B+', Short-term 'B', Individual 'D' and
Support '5'.  The Outlook on the Issuer Default rating remains
Stable.

The ratings of Caspian reflect the risks associated with rapid
retail loan book growth, increased reliance on foreign funding
and certain weaknesses in the operating environment.  However,
they also take into account the bank's continued strong
performance, sound capital ratios due to internal generation and
reasonable liquidity profile.

Upside for the ratings could result from further profitable
franchise growth accompanied by good asset quality and the
development of track record by the bank's new management.  At
the same time, downward pressure could result from a marked
deterioration in asset quality, driving pressure on capital
adequacy, or an increase in the bank's risk appetite.

At end-2006, Caspian was the ninth-largest commercial bank in
Kazakhstan with a 2.2% share of the banking system's assets.  
Although Caspian has been a first mover and leader in the very
lucrative express-lending market in Kazakhstan, it continues to
also serve the corporate and SME segments.  In December 2006,
Baring Vostok Capital Partners, a private equity firm investing
in the CIS, became a controlling shareholder in Caspian.  As a
result of this transaction, 94.7% of the bank's shares were
acquired by the Dutch-registered Caspian Group B.V., which in
turn is beneficially owned by BVCP and Kazakhstani businessman
Vyacheslav Kim.


BANK CENTERCREDIT: Fitch Affirms BB- IDR with Stable Outlook
------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed Kazakhstan-based Bank Centercredit's
ratings at Issuer Default 'BB-', Short-term 'B', Individual 'D'
and Support '3'.  The Outlook on the Issuer Default rating
remains Stable.

BCC's Issuer Default, Short-term and Support ratings reflect
Fitch's view of the moderate likelihood of state support being
available to the bank in case of necessity.  The Individual
rating of BCC reflects its very rapid growth, the relatively
high concentration in the bank's loan book and its modest
capitalization, as well as certain weaknesses in the operating
environment.  However, the Individual rating also considers the
bank's strong profitability, relatively well-diversified funding
base and low reported levels of loan impairment to date.

"Fitch does not expect the support floor of BCC's IDR to change,
given our current view of the authorities' propensity to provide
support to banks of BCC's size," says Alexei Kechko, Associate
Director of Fitch's Financial Institutions Group in Moscow.  
"Although significant gains in market shares, in particular in a
larger banking sector, could cause Fitch to reconsider its view
of the sovereign's propensity to provide support, we note that
the bank's growth rate has been and is planned to remain
somewhat lower than the exceptional pace of expansion of the
Kazakhstani banking sector as a whole."

Movement in BCC's Individual rating is not expected in the near-
term.  However, a moderation in growth rates and an extended
track record of good asset quality and performance would be
positive for the bank's standalone credit profile.

BCC was one of the six largest banks in Kazakhstan, with a
market share in assets of around 7.8% at end-September 2006.  It
focuses primarily on the SME and retail segments, utilising its
nationwide network.  Fitch is informed that the Chairman of the
Board of Directors, Bakhytbek Bayseitov, and senior management
own a 51% stake in the bank.

AZERDEMIRYOLBANK: Significant Growth Cues Fitch to Lift CCC+ IDR
----------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings upgraded Azerbaijan-based Azerdemiryolbank's
Issuer Default rating to 'B-' from 'CCC+' and Short-term rating
to 'B' from 'C'.  The Individual 'D/E' and Support '5' ratings
are affirmed.  The Outlook on the IDR remains Stable.

The upgrade reflects Azerdemir's significant business growth,
although its size remains very small by international standards.  
It also reflects the bank's improving funding profile, including
through international borrowings.  In addition, the upgrade
takes into consideration its reasonable profitability and asset
quality to date and very low related-party exposures.  However,
there are still considerable concentrations in the loan book,
and rapid loan growth in a still relatively high-risk operating
environment entails high credit risks and may put pressure on
capitalization.

Upside to the ratings is limited in the near term, but a
substantial expansion of the bank's franchise without
compromising asset quality, a reduction of loan concentrations
and a strengthening of capitalization would be positive for the
bank's credit profile.  Downward pressure could result mainly
from deterioration of capital ratios or an increase of
impairment levels following rapid loan growth.

Azerdemir was established in 1989 by the Azerbaijani State
Railway Company, though since 1995 the main shareholder has been
the Hajiyev family.  In December 2005, the EBRD acquired a 25% +
1 share in the bank through a share issue.

ROSNO OAO: Moody's Puts Ba1 Insurance Financial Strength Rating
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service placed the Ba1 insurance financial
strength rating and the Aa1.ru national scale rating of the
Russian insurer OAO ROSNO on review for possible upgrade, after
the announcement that Allianz is now assuming a majority stake
in the Russian group.

Since 2001, Rosno had been majority owned by two shareholders,
AFK Sistema (B1 long-term corporate family rating) with a 49.2%
stake, and Allianz SE (Aa3 insurance financial strength and
senior unsecured debt rating) with a 47.4% stake.  Both
shareholders disclosed that they signed a share purchase
agreement, after which Allianz now holds around 97% in ROSNO.

In placing ROSNO's rating under review for possible upgrade,
Moody's said that it expects policyholders and creditors to
benefit from ROSNO's becoming a subsidiary of Allianz, one of
the world's leading and most diversified insurance groups.
Moody's review of ROSNO's ratings will focus on establishing the
likelihood of parental support going forward as well as the
extent of ROSNO's integration into Allianz Group in the short to
medium term.

The date of the prior rating action on ROSNO was on Jan. 29,
when Moody's assigned a first time IFSR of Ba1 on a global scale
and IFSR of Aa1.ru on a national scale.

These ratings were placed on review for possible upgrade:

   * OAO ROSNO

     -- insurance financial strength rating at Ba1, stable
        outlook;

   * OAO ROSNO
     
     -- national scale rating at Aa1.ru.

Based in Moscow, Russia, ROSNO is one of the leading Russian
insurers.  ROSNO had shareholders' equity of US$98.4 million
under International Financial Reporting Standards as of Dec. 31,
2005.  For FY 2005, it reported Gross Premiums Written of
US$549.6 million and net income of US$20.2 million.

Allianz SE, headquartered in Munich, Germany, is a major
international financial services group and one of Europe's
largest insurers.  It reported total revenues of EUR101.1
billion in 2006 and had shareholders' equity including minority
interests of EUR56.9 billion as of Dec. 31, 2006.

SBERBANK ROSSII: Raises RUR230 Billion from Moscow IPO
------------------------------------------------------
OAO Sberbank Rossii raised around RUR230 billion following its
initial public offering in Moscow, Russia, Bloomberg News
reports citing Russia's Finance Ministry.

The bank sold the shares at RUR89,000 apiece and received orders
for around RUR260 billion of stock, Irina Yershova, Finance
Ministry spokeswoman, told Bloomberg News.

In a TCR-Europe report on Feb. 22, Alexei Rybnikov, head of
Micex Stock Exchange, said that Sberbank's current shareholders
-- Russia's Central Bank, local billionaires and fund groups --
were expected to participate in the IPO to prevent the dilution
of their shares.  Mr. Rybnikov added that with Sberbank's
existing owners buying newly issued shares, public investors
might only acquire up to US$3 billion of new stock.  The IPO was
aimed at reducing Russia's stake in Sberbank from 64% to 58%,
Bloomberg News says.

According to Bloomberg News, the IPO attracted investors in a
market dominated by energy and commodity stocks and an economy
that has grown for nine straight years.

Sberbank commenced its initial public offering on Feb. 1 in
Moscow, Russia.  Sberbank is selling 3.5 billion shares during
the IPO period.  In a TCR-Europe report on Feb. 2, the company
said it is eyeing to raise US$12 billion from the IPO, and is
planning to use the amount to finance its expansion.  JPMorgan
Chase & Co. and Credit Suisse Group are managing the IPO, which,
if successful, would value Sberbank at around US$81 billion,
Bloomberg News says.

                        About Sberbank

Headquartered in Moscow, OAO Sberbank Rossii --
http://www.sbrf.ru/eng/-- provides a full range of banking  
services, including commercial, investment, merchant, mortgage
and retail banking, and a complete range of travel, lending and

ADVANCED MARKETING: Court OKs Sale of PGW's Distribution Rights
---------------------------------------------------------------
Advanced Marketing Services Inc. and its debtor-affiliates
obtained authority from the United States Bankruptcy Court for
the District of Delaware 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 Court also approved the Debtors' purchase agreement with
Perseus including the assumption and assignment of contracts to
CDS.

TCR-Europe reported on Feb. 15 that National Book Network Inc.
made a competing and superior bid to purchase PGW's rights under
its distribution agreements with various publishers, as
disclosed by Rich Publishing LLC in its objection to the
proposed sale to Perseus and CDI.  NBN offered to pay 85 cents
on the dollar for the claims of all PGW publishers, Rich
Publishing said.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Feb. 14, Amber-
Allen Publishing Inc. disclosed that it would not enter into a
Publisher Agreement with Perseus.  Consequently, it asked the
Court to include these provisions in the order approving the
sale of PGW's rights under its distribution agreements to
Perseus and CDS:

    (a) The Amber-Allen Distribution Agreement is deemed
        rejected, effective immediately upon entry of the ruling
        granting the PGW Sale; and

    (b) Within five business days of entry of that Court ruling,
        PGW will cooperate with Amber-Allen to return Amber-
        Allen's books, and Amber-Allen will pay the reasonable
        freight and handling charges.

Judge Christopher S. Sontchi clarified in its order that nothing
will constitute an exercise of jurisdiction over an approval by
the Court of any of the Consenting Publisher Distribution
Agreements or the New Publisher Agreements other than to
authorize the Debtors to assume and assign the Assigned
Contracts to CDS, including the requirement of the execution of
the Agreements.

Upon the closing of the PGW Sale, the Distribution Agreements of
all Consenting Publishers will be deemed assumed and assigned
subject to the terms of the Purchase Agreement and the
Assignment Agreement.  Upon the assumption and assignment, no
payments made to Consenting Publishers prepetition on account of
obligations due under the Assumed Contracts will be recoverable
by, or for the benefit of, the Debtors' estates under the
Bankruptcy Code including Sections 547 or 550.

"We are excited to move forward as quickly as possible to write
checks to PGW clients and to provide some certainty for PGW
employees," said David Steinberger, president and chief
executive of Perseus, The New York Times reported.

National Book Network Inc., which formally delivered its
competing bid to the Court on Feb. 14, offered to pay 85 cents
on the dollar for the claims of all PGW publishers.

Perseus, on the other hand, offered 70 cents on the dollar for
the claims of all Consenting publishers.

Judge Sontchi said the consideration under the PGW Sale is fair
and reasonable and provides reasonably equivalent value in
exchange for the assets transferred.  The sale process was fair.  
The competitive sales process was not stifled.  The price was
negotiated at arm's-length between commercially sophisticated
entities represented by counsel.  The price was not the product
of collusion or unfair or inequitable conduct and was the
highest price offered.

Perseus Books acted in good faith within the meaning of Section
363(m) of the Bankruptcy Code, Judge Sontchi added.

               Amber-Allen Contract Deemed Rejected

To address the objection filed by Amber-Allen Publishing Inc.,
Judge Sontchi ruled that:

    (a) the marketing and distribution agreement between PGW and
        AAP will be deemed rejected and terminated effective
        upon closing of the PGW Sale;

    (b) PGW will cooperate with AAP to enable AAP to retrieve
        all Products in PGW's possession, custody or control
        within 15 days after the closing of the PGW Sale with
        AAP paying all freight and handling charges for the
        retrieval;

    (c) upon the closing of the PGW Sale, AAP will be deemed to
        have waived any claim for damages arising out of the
        rejection of the AAP Agreement; and

    (d) notwithstanding the rejection and termination of the AAP
        Agreement, AAP will continue to accept returns of
        Products from PGW's trade accounts until the earlier of
        the effective date of any confirmed Plan in the Debtors'
        Chapter 11 cases, conversion to Chapter 7, or the date
        that is one year from the rejection and termination, and
        will credit the returns dollar for dollar against AAP's
        prepetition unsecured claim.

All objections to the Sale that were not previously withdrawn
are overruled.

AMERICAN AXLE: Moody's Assigns Ba3 Rating on US$300-Mln Notes
-------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a Ba3 rating (LGD-4, 56%) to
American Axle & Manufacturing Inc.'s new issue of US$300-million
of unsecured notes.

At the same time, the rating agency raised the company's
Speculative Grade Liquidity rating to SGL-1 and affirmed the
company's existing Corporate Family Rating of Ba3 and negative
outlook.  

Although the company's leverage measurements will initially
increase as a result of the new debt, its margins, cash flows
and coverage ratios should improve during 2007 as a result of
restructuring initiatives and employee buy-out programs
initiated during 2006.  The company's liquidity profile will be
strengthened from the combination of retention of a portion of
the proceeds as corporate cash, increased availability under its
bank revolving credit facility, and free cash flow generation.
The result of improved liquidity and expected trends in key
metrics help maintain the company's position in the Ba3 rating
category despite the modest initial increase in debt levels.  
The negative outlook recognizes the considerable near-term
uncertainty posed by the September 2007 expiration of the Big-3
UAW contract and the possibility of any related strikes or work
actions.  In addition, due to its significant supply contracts
relating to General Motors' T900 trucks and SUVs, American Axle
remains vulnerable to further shifts in consumer preference away
from these segments.

"American Axle's credit metrics could improve by late 2007 and
into 2008 as the benefits of its restructuring initiatives begin
to take hold" Edwin Wiest, vice president with Moody's said.
"However, the company and the entire automotive supplier sector
will face considerable near-term uncertainty until the Big-3 UAW
contract negotiations are finalized." Mr. Wiest went on to say
that, "Given this uncertainty, the company's effort to
strengthen is liquidity position is constructive."

American Axle will use a portion of the proceeds from the issue
to reduce outstandings under its bank revolving credit facility
and money market borrowings, which collectively amounted to
US$134 million at the end of December 2006.  The balance will be
retained as cash.  On a pro forma basis for year end 2006,
debt/EBITDA on a trailing basis would increase from roughly 3
times to 3.5 times.  Following its Special Attrition Program and
other restructuring actions in the fourth quarter of 2006, the
company is expected to achieve significant savings in its cost
structure.  This should facilitate higher EBITDA generation,
and, along with lower capital expenditures, produce positive
free cash flow over the intermediate period.  In turn, coverage
and leverage metrics should exhibit positive trends and help
position the company in the Ba3 rating category.

Nonetheless, American Axle remains vulnerable to a challenging
industry environment, faces ongoing correlation of its results
with GM's production of light trucks, and continues with its
revenues concentrated in North America.  Those issues along with
uncertainties on the ultimate application of higher cash
balances warrant maintaining a negative outlook until OEM labor
contract issues are resolved and final consumer demand for
vehicles based on the GM T900 in a higher fuel cost environment
is confirmed beyond an introductory period.

The Speculative Grade Liquidity rating of SGL-1 represents
excellent liquidity over the coming twelve months.  This
develops from the increase in internal resources from the
retention of a portion of the note proceeds, minimal, if any,
near term debt maturities, and expectations of free cash flow of
at least US$100 million in 2007.  External sources will
effectively increase as a result of the repayment of revolving
credit borrowings.  The company should have ample room under its
principal financial covenants, which measure debt net of cash
and exclude certain non-recurring charges from the measurement
of EBITDA and their related impact on deemed net worth.  All of
the company's bank obligations and notes are currently
unsecured, which establishes some flexibility to generate
alternative liquidity, if needed, subject to lien baskets and
sale/leaseback limitations in their respective indentures.

The notes will be issued under the company's existing shelf
registration.  However, the indenture will include a change in
control provision.  As with American Axle's existing bank debt
and unsecured notes, the issue will be guaranteed by American
Axle's holding company parent.  Given the unsecured nature of
the debt claims in the company's capital structure, recovery
rates in Moody's Loss Given Default assessment have not
materially changed from earlier measurement dates and are LGD-4,
56 %.

Ratings assigned:

   * American Axle & Manufacturing, Inc.

     -- US$300 million of guaranteed senior unsecured notes due
        2017, Ba3 (LGD-4, 56%)

Ratings changed:

   * American Axle & Manufacturing, Inc.

     -- Speculative Grade Liquidity rating to SGL-1 from SGL-2

Loss Given Default Assessments revised:

   * American Axle & Manufacturing, Inc. and American Axle &
     Manufacturing Holdings, Inc.

     -- Senior unsecured term loan and Senior Unsecured notes to
        LGD-4, 56% from LGD-4, 57%

Ratings affirmed:

   * American Axle & Manufacturing Holdings, Inc.

     -- Corporate Family Rating, Ba3

     -- Senior Unsecured Convertible Notes, Ba3

   * American Axle & Manufacturing, Inc.

     -- Senior Unsecured Term Loan, Ba3

     -- Senior Unsecured Notes, Ba3

American Axle's revolving credit facility is not rated.  The
last rating action was on Dec. 8, 2006, at which time all of the
company's ratings were confirmed after being placed under review
for downgrade on Oct. 5, 2006.

American Axle & Manufacturing, Inc., headquartered in Detroit,
MI, is a world leader in the manufacture, design, engineering
and validation of driveline systems and related components and
modules, chassis systems, and metal-formed products for light
truck, SUV's and passenger cars.  The company has manufacturing
locations in the USA, Mexico, the United Kingdom, and Brazil and
has recently opened new plants in Poland and China.  The company
reported revenues of US$3.2 billion in 2006.

COLT TELECOM: Incurs EUR18.8 Million Net Losses in 2006
-------------------------------------------------------
Colt Telecom Group S.A. released its financial results for the
twelve months ended Dec. 31, 2006.

Colt posted EUR18.8 million in net losses against EUR1.8 billion
in net revenues for the twelve months ended Dec. 31, 2006,
compared with EUR489.8 million in net losses against EUR1.82
billion in net revenues for the same period in 2005.

At Dec. 31, 2006, the Company's consolidated balance sheet
showed EUR1.8 billion in total assets and EUR895.3 million in
total liabilities, resulting in a EUR924.4-million stockholders'
equity.

The Company's Dec. 31 balance sheet also showed strained
liquidity with EUR554.2 million in total current assets
available to pay EUR586.9 million in total liabilities coming
due within the next 12 months.

"COLT made progress again in 2006," Timothy Hilton, COLT's
Chairman, said.  "We continued to grow our data and Managed
Services revenues.  We continued to transform the Group and to
improve earnings and cash flow despite an accelerating decline
in voice revenues.  We also successfully moved our domicile to
Luxembourg, raised EUR440.6 million in new equity and redeemed
EUR583.4 million of debt so that COLT leaves 2006 with net debt
of less than EUR70 million."

"As COLT's new chairman I would like to thank both Barry Bateman
for his hard work, enthusiasm and commitment to COLT over the
last 10 years and also Jean-Yves Charlier, our Chief Executive
for the past two-and-a-half years, for moving the business
forward in a particularly challenging environment.  I would also
like to welcome Rakesh Bhasin as our new Chief Executive," Mr.
Hilton added.

Rakesh Bhasin, Chief Executive Officer, said, "Building on the
foundations laid by Barry and Jean-Yves, in the fourth quarter
COLT achieved its second consecutive quarterly net profit and
was cash flow positive for the second year running.

"Our markets continue to be highly competitive. Total revenues
for the fourth quarter were broadly in line with both
comparative periods, with the impact of declining voice revenues
being offset by the growth in our data and Managed Services
revenues.  The decline in voice continues to be focused on
Germany and the U.K., where revenues declined more sharply in
the fourth quarter.  Data revenues have continued to improve,
rising by 6.9% for the year and by 10.2% over the same quarter
in 2005.

"We also continued to improve our infrastructure, with all but
one country now having transferred their customer facing
operations to our new Customer Service Centre in Barcelona and
the remaining seven countries moving on to our new India based
ERP platform.

"Looking forward, COLT will continue to take the actions
necessary to improve the business and deliver long term
shareholder value.  I am currently reviewing all aspects of the
business and working with our Board and senior management to
determine the best way forward for the Group in its next stage
of development.

"The outcome for 2007 is harder than normal to predict because
of the potential investment consequences of this review and the
uncertain full year impact of increasingly soft voice revenues,
nevertheless we expect further progress in 2007.

"In 2007, our focus will be on growing revenue, especially data
and Managed Services, introducing more innovative services and
technologies, providing an outstanding customer experience and
continuing to manage our costs and capital expenditure so that
COLT becomes an even stronger business," Mr. Bhasin concluded.

COLT has appointed Hans Eggerstedt as Senior Independent
Director.  Mr Eggerstedt is Chairman of the Audit Committee and
has been a non-Executive Director of the COLT Board since June
2003.

Headquartered in London, United Kingdom, Colt Telecom --
http://www.colt.net/-- offers business communication services   
across Europe.  Through its fiber optic network, the Company

credit and long-term local issuer credit at B.  The outlook is

LADBROKES PLC: Dec. 31 Balance Sheet Upside-Down by GBP626.9 Mln
----------------------------------------------------------------
Ladbrokes plc released its preliminary financial results for the
year ended Dec. 31, 2006.

Ladbrokes posted GBP617.2 million in net profit against GBP970
million net revenues for the year ended Dec. 31, 2006, compared
with GBP331 million in net profit against GBP908.5 million in
net revenues for the same period in 2005.

At Dec. 31, 2006, the Company's consolidated balance sheet
showed GBP852.9 million in total assets and GBP1.5 billion in
total liabilities, resulting in a GBP626.9-million stockholders'
deficit.

The Board has recommended a final dividend of 8.6 pence per
share payable on June 1 to shareholders on the register on
March 2.  This final dividend, together with the interim
dividend of 4.6 pence, gives a total dividend of 13.2 pence.

"We can look back on a year of achievement, both at home and
internationally and we are pleased to post a record profit
performance," Ladbrokes Chief Executive, Christopher Bell,
commented.  "We began the year by selling the hotel division,
delivering one of the biggest returns to shareholders on record
and announcing our consultancy in China.  Along the way we have
expanded our online business, invested in our retail estate by
launching Ladbrokes Xtra and commenced the rollout of the latest
FOBTs.  We ended the year by winning licences and acquiring
shops in Italy and began 2007 by signing a JV to launch a
betting business in Spain.  Early trading in 2007 has been
satisfactory with good football results but more cancellations
of horse racing fixtures this year than last. 2007 has its own
challenges but we remain confident in the future prospects for
Ladbrokes plc."

"2006 has been a good year for Ladbrokes plc," Sir Ian Robinson,
Chairman, said.  "In its first year following the sale of Hilton
International in February 2006, management has successfully
established Ladbrokes as a market leading, standalone betting
and gaming company, in which profitability for continuing
operations increased by 7.7%.  We have also made substantial
progress in furthering our international ambitions during 2006,
which the Board is confident will create shareholder value in
future years."

"As you are aware, we commenced discussions with 888 last
November.  These discussions continue and are complex because of
the current conditions in the U.S.  We will update the market as
and when appropriate," Mr. Robinson added.

                             Outlook

Trading in the first seven weeks of 2007 has been satisfactory,
with good football results but a higher level of U.K. horse
racing cancellations this year than last, due to the excessively
wet weather.

eGaming continues to perform strongly and is ahead of our
expectations.  Telephone Betting is behind last year due to
tough High Rollers comparators but is in line with expectations.

International expansion plans are on track and Ladbrokes
anticipates positive contribution from 2008.

Following a 2006 that included a successful World Cup, the Board
recognizes that 2007 does have its own challenges but remains
confident in the future prospects for Ladbrokes.

                    International Development

Following the award of licenses in the recent Italian tender
process, Ladbrokes plans to open 61 betting centers and 51
corners in the next 18 months.  It has recently acquired four
betting centers and will seek to achieve our target of around
200 outlets over the next three years.  It also purchased a
remote license in Italy and will target opportunities in
Internet and telephone.

In preparation for the regulation of sports betting in the
Madrid region, Ladbrokes has formed a joint venture company with
the Spanish market leader, Cirsa Slot.  The expectation is that
other regions will regulate sports betting following Madrid's
announcement.

It is anticipated that opportunities in Italy and Spain will be
central to Ladbrokes' three to five year guidance of GBP20-40
million EBIT per annum.

Ladbrokes also provides a consultancy service to the operator of
400 Happy Pool betting shops in China, which have now expanded
into three provinces.  In addition, Ladbrokes has formed a joint
venture company with MegaInfo Holdings Ltd., in order to develop
betting products for the Chinese Sports Lottery.

Asia and Europe remain the key international targets and
Ladbrokes is exploring a number of additional opportunities in
these areas.

                          Casino Development

The Ladbrokes Casino and Sportsbar at London's Paddington Hilton
has steadily increased its membership numbers since opening in
July 2006.

Ladbrokes will bid for the regional casino license in Manchester
and is interested in operating several of the 16 new small and
large casinos to be awarded under the 2005 Gambling Act.

A full-text copy of the company's financial report for the year
ended Dec. 31, 2006, is available for free at:

RAY ACQUISITION: Moody's May Upgrade Junk Rating After Review
-------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service placed Ray Acquisition SCA's corporate
family rating (currently B2/Stable) on review for possible
upgrade following the company's announcement to undertake an
initial public offering and to use proceeds to repay debt.

The ratings on Rays' EUR600-million 9.375% Senior Subordinated
Notes due 2015 (currently rated Caa1) and on Rexel SA's EUR1.5-
billion Senior Credit Facilities (currently rated B2) have also
been placed on review for possible upgrade.

Moody's understands that the company intends to raise a minimum
of EUR800 million in its IPO.  If all proceeds are used to
reduce debt this will result in materially improved credit
metrics and lead to greater financial flexibility.  The planned
IPO proposes access to equity capital markets, and the use of
proceeds for debt reduction points to more conservative
financial policies.  These factors, together with the company's
continued positive trend in its financial performance, place
upward pressure on credit ratings.

Moody's review will focus on the make up of the revised capital
structure and how this impacts the credit risk profile, together
with changes to financial policies and the positive momentum
shown in the company's financial performance.

Ray Acquisition SCA is the direct parent of Rexel SA, which is
the world's largest distributor of low and ultra low voltage
electrical parts and components.  For the 12-months ended
Dec. 31, 2006, Ray reported total sales and EBITDA of EUR9.3
billion and EUR638 million respectively.


RAY ACQUISITION: S&P Puts EUR600-Mln Notes on Watch Positive
------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services placed on CreditWatch with
positive implications its 'B' long-term corporate credit rating
on France-based business-to-business electrical parts
distributor Rexel S.A. and Ray Acquisition SCA, the 99.99%
parent company, which is owned by Rexel's financial investors.

"The CreditWatch placement reflects the potential strengthening
of Rexels's financial profile likely to stem from the proposed
IPO, which is expected to raise a minimum of EUR800 million in
capital," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Eve Greb. The
current EUR1.11-billion shareholder loan is expected to be
repaid either through an additional capital increase or
converted into equity.

"Although the details of the proposed transaction are yet to be
determined, a positive rating action is likely to be triggered
if the IPO goes ahead and if a substantial portion of the
proceeds is used to reduce net indebtedness," said Ms. Greb.  
This could involve a claw-back of up to 35% or a full redemption
of the outstanding bonds amounting to EUR600 million issued by
Ray Acquisition.

A successful IPO would lead to a three-notch upgrade to 'BB' for
the rating on Rexel and Ray Acquisition if the new capital
structure results in pro forma funds from operations to adjusted
debt of between 15% and 20% on a sustained basis.  A ratio of
FFO to adjusted debt in excess of this level would likely result
in a four-notch upgrade to 'BB+'.  Ratio targets are relatively
low for the rating category, reflecting the strong free
operating cash flow.

Following the IPO, Rexel will remain majority owned by the group
of private equity investors, which is composed of Clayton
Dubilier & Rice, Eurazeo, Merrill Lynch Global Private Equity,
and other equity investors.

The CreditWatch placement will be resolved once the details of
the transaction have been finalized and the ultimate success, or
otherwise, of the IPO is assured.


RENTOKIL INITIAL: Dec. 31 Stockholders' Deficit is EUR533.6 Mln
---------------------------------------------------------------
Rentokil Initial plc released its preliminary unaudited
financial results for the year ended Dec. 31, 2006.

Rentokil posted EUR247.1 million in net profit against EUR2.1
billion in net revenues for the year ended Dec. 31, 2006,
compared with EUR324.4 million in net profit against EUR1.9
billion in net revenues for the same period in 2005.

At Dec. 31, 2006, the Company's consolidated balance sheet
showed EUR1.8 billion in total assets and EUR2.3 billion in
total liabilities, resulting in a EUR533.6-million stockholders'
deficit.

The Company's Dec. 31 balance sheet also showed strained
liquidity with EUR672.6 million in total current assets
available to pay EUR1.1 billion in total liabilities coming due
within the next 12 months.

Doug Flynn, Chief Executive Officer of Rentokil Initial plc,
said, "In 2006 we made good progress against our stated
objectives.  We have improved customer retention rates in all
our divisions, which in turn has helped drive strong revenue
growth.  Our profitability is starting to improve in many
businesses and the full year results were in line with
expectations.

"We are seeking to rebalance the portfolio towards future growth
and I am pleased with the progress we have made in building
leadership positions in markets around the world through a
combination of acquisitions and operational improvements.

"We are seeing good momentum across large parts of the group and
overall we expect 2007 to be a year of stabilization.  However,
there remains much to do.  In particular, we are focused on our
Textiles and Washroom Services operations in general and
especially in the U.K. and France.  I am confident that the
changes introduced will deliver results in all our businesses.
This will not happen overnight but the right team is now in
place and the right actions are being taken," Mr. Flynn
concluded.

Headquartered in West Sussex, England, Rentokil Initial PLC --
http://www.rentokil-initial.com/-- is one of the largest  
business services companies in the world, operating in all the
major economies of Europe, North America, Asia Pacific and
Africa.  The company has some 90,000 employees providing a range
of support services in over 40 countries.


REXEL SA: S&P Puts B Credit Rating on CreditWatch Positive
----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services placed on CreditWatch with
positive implications its 'B' long-term corporate credit rating
on France-based business-to-business electrical parts
distributor Rexel S.A. and Ray Acquisition SCA, the 99.99%
parent company, which is owned by Rexel's financial investors.

At the same time, the 'CCC+' rating on Ray Acquisition's EUR600
million senior subordinated notes, maturing in 2015, and the 'B'
issue rating on Ray Acquisition's EUR2.1 billion senior secured
facilities were put on CreditWatch with positive implications.  
The rating action followed the announcement that Rexel has filed
IPO documents with the French securities authorities.

"The CreditWatch placement reflects the potential strengthening
of Rexels's financial profile likely to stem from the proposed
IPO, which is expected to raise a minimum of EUR800 million in
capital," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Eve Greb.  The
current EUR1.11-billion shareholder loan will be repaid either
through an additional capital increase or converted into equity.

"Although the details of the proposed transaction are yet to be
determined, a positive rating action is likely to be triggered
if the IPO goes ahead and if a substantial portion of the
proceeds is used to reduce net indebtedness," said Ms. Greb.  
This could involve a claw-back of up to 35% or a full redemption
of the outstanding bonds amounting to EUR600 million issued by
Ray Acquisition.

A successful IPO would lead to a three-notch upgrade to 'BB' for
the rating on Rexel and Ray Acquisition if the new capital
structure results in pro forma funds from operations to adjusted
debt of between 15% and 20% on a sustained basis.  A ratio of
FFO to adjusted debt in excess of this level would likely result
in a four-notch upgrade to 'BB+'.  Ratio targets are relatively
low for the rating category, reflecting the strong free
operating cash flow.

Following the IPO, Rexel will remain majority owned by the group
of private equity investors, which is composed of Clayton
Dubilier & Rice, Eurazeo, Merrill Lynch Global Private Equity,
and other equity investors.

The CreditWatch placement will be resolved once the details of
the transaction have been finalized and the ultimate success, or
otherwise, of the IPO is assured.

SEA CONTAINERS: Committees Seek to Create Info Sharing Protocol
---------------------------------------------------------------
The Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors of Sea Containers
Ltd. and the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors of Sea
Containers Services Ltd. jointly ask the Honorable Kevin J.
Carey of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware
to clarify that Section 1102(b)(3)(A) of the Bankruptcy Code
does not authorize or require them to provide access to the
Debtors' confidential and other non-public proprietary
information, or to privileged information, to the creditors they
represent.

The Official Committees, however, agree that they will provide
access to Privileged Information to any party so long as it is
not Confidential Information and the relevant privilege was held
and controlled solely by an Official Committee.

Pursuant to the Bankruptcy Abuse Prevention and Consumer
Protection Act of 2005, each of the Committees is required to
provide access to information for creditors it represents.

Derek C. Abbott, Esq., at Morris, Nichols, Arsht & Tunnell LLP,
in Wilmington, Delaware, relates that the Debtors operate in a
competitive industry where the dissemination of confidential
information to parties who are not bound by any confidentiality
agreement could be disastrous to the Debtors.  Confidential
Information includes business strategies and intended
initiatives.

If the Debtors' general creditors could require an Official
Committee to give them access to Confidential Information in the
Committee's possession, the information could easily become
public and could be used by competitors to the detriment of the
Debtors' business operations, Mr. Abbott points out.

Mr. Abbott notes that other Confidential Information, including
compensation levels or other employee information, is of a
sensitive nature and their public disclosure would affect
employee morale and similar problems for the Debtors, and
violate federal and state privacy laws.

According to Mr. Abbott, the request will benefit the Committees
and their constituents by permitting them to receive
Confidential Information from the Debtors without the fear that
individual creditors could force them to breach confidentiality.  
"Unless it is made clear that the risk of dissemination of
Privileged Information does not exist, the estate representation
structure envisioned by the Bankruptcy Code would become
immediately dysfunctional," he adds.

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
