BENQ CORP: Mobile Unit's Assets to Be Split Up & Liquidated
-----------------------------------------------------------
BenQ Mobile GmbH & Co. OHG, the bankrupt mobile subsidiary of
Taiwan-based BenQ Corp., will be liquidated and sold off
separately, published reports say, citing BenQ Mobile's
insolvency administrator, Martin Prager.

Mr. Prager confirmed a report in Germany's Sueddeutsche Zeitung
that "there is no longer a realistic chance of it [BenQ Mobile]
being sold as a whole," the Associated Press relates.

The announcement came after a potential bidder dropped plans to
acquire the bankrupt firm.

"We have to acknowledge that the market has decided against Benq
Mobile," Mr. Prager told Bloomberg News.

According to Sueddeutsche Zeitung, Mr. Prager estimated up to
EUR310 million of sales proceeds from real estate, machinery and
patents, in addition to EUR66 million of cash, Bloomberg
relates.  However, the paper suggests, this is still millions
short compared with the company's EUR883 million in debts.

Mr. Prager wouldn't comment on the possible loss of the firm's
3,000 jobs once the assets are split off and sold separately,
the Wall Street Journal reports citing AP as its source.

Siemens, which previously owned BenQ Mobile before selling it to
BenQ Corp., revealed in January a solid financial basis for the
job placement companies for employees of BenQ Mobile OHG in
North Rhine-Westphalia and Bavaria.  A EUR10 million aid fund
has also been set up by Siemens for supporting employees in
financial difficulties.  Through the job exchange established by
Siemens for employees of BenQ Mobile OHG, over 690 interviews
have been scheduled at Siemens.  Round about 150 concrete job
offers have so far been made.  In addition, Siemens has secured
the continuation of training for 88 trainees of BenQ Mobile
within Siemens AG.

                          About BenQ

Headquartered in Taiwan, Republic of China, BenQ Corp.,
Inc. -- http://www.benq.com/-- is principally engaged in
manufacturing, developing and selling of computer peripherals
and telecommunication products.  It is also a major provider of
3G handset, 3G handset, Camera phones, and other products.

BenQ Mobile GmbH & Co., the company's wholly owned subsidiary,
operates from Munich, Germany.  BenQ Mobile filed for insolvency
in Germany on Sept. 29, after BenQ Corp.'s board decided to
discontinue capital injection into the mobile unit in order to
stem unsustainable losses.  The collapse follows a year after
Siemens sold the company to Taiwanese technology group BenQ.
BenQ Mobile has lost market share against giant competitors.

A Munich Court opened insolvency proceedings against BenQ Mobile
GmbH & Co OHG on Jan. 1 after Mr. Prager failed to meet the
deadline in finding a buyer for the company on Dec. 31, 2006.

More than 3,000 manufacturing workers have been affected in the
company's insolvency proceedings after it disclosed of plans to
reduce two-thirds of its work force.  The mobile unit took over
a factory in Kamp Lintfort in western Germany from Siemens,
which cost Siemens more than US$1 billion.  Under the agreement,
BenQ will have the right to use the Siemens brand for five
years.  Siemens owns a 2.5 percent stake in BenQ Corp.

                        *     *     *

The Troubled Company Reporter - Asia Pacific reported on
Dec. 5, 2006, that Taiwan Ratings Corp., assigned its long-term
twBB+ and short-term twB corporate credit ratings to BenQ Corp.
The outlook on the long-term rating is negative.  At the same
time, Taiwan Ratings assigned its twBB+ issue rating to BenQ's
existing NT$7.05 billion unsecured corporate bonds due in 2008,
2009, and 2010.

The ratings reflect BenQ's:

   * continuing operating losses from its handset operations;

   * high leverage; and

   * the competitive nature and low profitability of the LCD
     monitor industry.

DAIMLERCHRYSLER: Chrysler's Bidding Process May Start This Week
---------------------------------------------------------------
DaimlerChrysler AG's Chrysler Group's bidding process will
probably start this week, The Detroit News suggests.

According to the report, J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. will hand out a
detailed prospectus to a limited number of potential buyers,
which include Cerberus Capital, Apollo Management, the Carlyle
Group, and the Blackstone Group.

One potential bidder is OAO Gaz Group, Russia's second largest
auto company, German weekly Focus magazine notes.  Chrysler
supplies four-cylinder engines for cars and mini-vans to Gaz.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Europe on Feb. 19,
citing German publication Manager Magazin, DaimlerChrysler AG
and General Motors Corp. are in talks about a possible purchase
of the Chrysler Group by GM.

According to the Financial Times, if a deal between
DaimlerChrysler and General Motors Corp. for Chrysler will push
through, the German-based automaker will consider buying a
minority stake in the U.S.-based company.

In a TCR-Europe report on Feb. 23, Volkswagen AG, Renault SA,
and Nissan Motor Co. said they are not interested in acquiring
or entering into a partnership with Chrysler.  The Wall Street
Journal earlier related that the Renault-Nissan auto alliance
had initially been tagged as possible Chrysler partners after
DaimlerChrysler disclosed its intention to sell the unit or find
partners among other automakers to help run the company.

                       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.


DAIMLERCHRYSLER AG: Hyundai Denies Interest in Chrysler Purchase
----------------------------------------------------------------
Hyundai Motor squashed rumors about a possible Chrysler
acquisition from DaimlerChrysler AG, denying a report posted on
Feb. 19 by U.K.-based The Times on its Web site, the Associated
Press states.

The Times report claimed that Hyundai intends to join would-be
bidders because it was interested in Chrysler's dealerships
network in the U.S., the Associated Press relates.

"We are not considering to buy Chrysler because our hands are
full," Hyundai spokesman Jake Jang told AP.

According to AP, Mr. Jang went on to say that Hyundai has an
engine deal with Chrysler and Japan's Mitsubishi Motors Corp.,
which lets them produce engines based on the South Korean
automaker's design.

                       About Hyundai Motor

Headquartered in Seoul, South Korea, Hyundai Motor Company --
http://www.hyundai-motor.com/-- has been selling cars in the
United States since 1986, but it only started selling its heavy
trucks stateside in 1998.  Hyundai produces 14 models of cars
and minivans, as well as trucks, buses, and other commercial
vehicles.  The Company reestablished itself as Korea's leading
carmaker in 1998 by acquiring a 51% stake in Kia Motors -- since
reduced to about 45%.  The Company also manufactures machine
tools for factory automation and material- handling equipment.

DAIMLERCHRYSLER AG: Predicts Drop in 2007 Sales for Truck Arm
-------------------------------------------------------------
DaimlerChrysler AG projects a drop in sales for its truck
division in 2007, although it is expected to stay profitable as
the company anticipates a steady demand for trucks in Western
Europe and North America, the Wall Street Journal reports.

Truck division head Andreas Renschler revealed that Freightliner
LLC, part of the unit, would continue to be lucrative this year,
despite soaring fuel prices that could lead to a slump for the
industry, the Associated Press states.

According to published reports, Mr. Renschler said that the
market for middle to heavy trucks could decline by 25% to 27%,
with the Japanese market possibly shrinking 40% in 2007, but he
sees an increase in demand during the last quarter.

TCR-Europe reported on Feb. 15 that 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 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.

PROSIEBENSAT.1 MEDIA: Earns EUR240.7 Million in Fiscal 2006
-----------------------------------------------------------
ProsiebenSat.1 Media AG released its preliminary financial
results for the year ended Dec. 31, 2006.

ProsiebenSat.1 Media posted EUR240.7 million in net profit
against EUR2.11 billion net revenues for the year ended Dec. 31,
2006, compared with EUR220.9 million in net profit against
EUR1.99 billion in net revenues for the same period in 2005.

"The ProSiebenSat.1 Group had a very successful fiscal 2006.  We
increased our TV advertising revenues and enhanced our stations'
profitability even further.  Our new lines of business sped up
the Group's growth even more," said Guillaume de Posch, chief
executive officer of ProSiebenSat.1 Media AG.

"Strategically, we accomplished a great deal during the year.
We ensured digital distribution of our programming, and we put
new services on the market, like our two Pay TV channels.  In
Call TV, Mobile TV and video-on-demand, we are already the
largest provider in Germany.  We've positioned the Group
successfully for the digital future."

                             Outlook

The German economic research institutes assume that the upswing
in the German economy will continue during the year.  They
project that gross domestic product will gain between 1.4 and
2.1% in 2007.  The economic experts cite rising domestic demand
as one reason for growth.

The ProSiebenSat.1 Group assumes that this expansion will have a
positive impact on the TV advertising market, and currently
views 2 to 3% as a realistic expectation for net growth in the
German TV advertising market for 2007.

Given advertising clients' habit of booking on short notice,
long-term projections for the TV advertising market are always
subject to reservations.  The ProSiebenSat.1 Group projects that
it can achieve above-average growth in TV advertising revenues,
and can thus expand its lead in the German TV market, given that
the family of stations will achieve the planned ratings.  In the
future, profitable growth at the ProSiebenSat.1 Group will
continue to be supported primarily by the main line of business,
advertising-financed television.

"The ProSiebenSat.1 Group will continue emphatically pursuing
its strategic goals in the current year.  We will strengthen our
core business in Free TV with a whole line of new programming.
Our stations have many new programs that will debut in the
spring.  At the same time, we will expand our new lines of
business," said Mr. de Posch.

"Our Diversification revenues will grow both organically and
through acquisitions.  With our investment in Solute we have
just acquired another innovative Internet company.  We are thus
further expanding our position as one of the largest providers
on the Internet."

Against this background, the ProSiebenSat.1 Group assumes that
it will achieve further gains in both revenues and earnings this
fiscal year.  In so doing, the Group will systematically further
pursue its programs to enhance efficiency in all areas.  During
the current fiscal year, including further acquisitions, the
Diversification unit is expected to contribute up to 15% of
Group revenues.

DEALES MORTON: Enters Into Receivership Procedure
-------------------------------------------------
Deales Morton Group has gone into receivership after
profitability suffered from increasing competition and high
overheads, Ian Kehoe writes for the Sunday Business Post.

The company's bankers appointed Tom Kavanagh of Kavanagh Fennell
as receiver.

Mr. Kavanagh is seeking a buyer for the furniture supplier as a
going concern.

Headquartered in Dublin, Ireland, Deales Morton Group, which is
incorporated as Edwin Deale & Son Ltd., supplies office
furniture.  The company, controlled by brothers Richard and
Edward Morton, reported about EUR3 million in annual sales.


SCOTTISH RE: Facing Bankruptcy Absent MassMutual/Cerberus Deal
--------------------------------------------------------------
Scottish Re Group Ltd. has postponed until March 2 a
shareholders' meeting to vote on a US$600 million takeover bid
proposed by U.S. companies MassMutual Capital Partners LLC and
Cerberus Capital Management, L.P.

The meeting has been delayed to allow shareholders an
opportunity to consider an amendment that would indemnify
MassMutual/Cerberus by US$68.5 million should they be approved
the majority owners, the company's chief executive officer said
in a statement.

Institutional Shareholder Services and Glass Lewis & Co., both
independent proxy advisory firms, recommended to Scottish Re's
shareholders to accept the offer.  Company executives warned of
a possible bankruptcy filing once shareholders reject the
proposal, Scott Neil writes for the Royal Gazette.

The company's fourth quarter release doesn't bode well for its
future.  Its US$231.6 million quarter loss prompted a ratings
downgrade from Fitch.  The rating agency said in its release
that should the Cerberus/MassMutual deal goes down the drain,
the company's Insurer Financial Strength could suffer a further
downgrade to junk level from its BB+ rating.

In last week's conference call, Chief Executive Officer Paul
Goldean was quoted by the Royal Gazette as saying: "Without a
transaction such as MassMutual/Cerberus, further rating
downgrades are certain.  The rating agencies have also indicated
that simply raising additional capital will not result in an
increase in our ratings.  This was a significant consideration
in evaluating a potential rights offering.

"An increase in our ratings is critical not only in order to
write new business but more importantly for us to be able to
successfully to complete financing facilities in order to meet
our significant collateral.

"If the MassMutual/Cerebrus transaction or a similar transaction
is not completed in the very near term the company will have no
alternative but to seek protection under applicable bankruptcy
and insolvency laws almost immediately.

"2006 was a difficult year for all the stakeholders of
ScottishRe.  With the closing the MassMutual/Cerebrus
transaction we look forward to returning our full attention of
the company to our reinsurance business to regain our former
status as one of the industries leading participants."

Scottish Re Group Limited -- http://www.scottishre.com/--  
provides reinsurance of life insurance, annuities and annuity-
type products through its operating companies in Bermuda,
Charlotte, North Carolina, Dublin, Ireland, Grand Cayman, and
Windsor, England.  At March 31, 2006, the reinsurer's balance
sheet showed US$12.2 billion assets and US$10.8 billion in
liabilities.

                        *     *     *

Moody's Investors Service continues to review the ratings of
Scottish Re Group Ltd. with direction uncertain following the
announcement by the company that it has entered into an
agreement to sell a majority stake to MassMutual Capital
Partners LLC, a member of the MassMutual Financial Group and
Cerberus Capital Management, L.P., a private investment firm.

Ratings under review include Scottish Re Group Limited's senior
unsecured debt which is rated at Ba3 and preferred stock rated
at B2.

Standard & Poor's Ratings Services has also revised the
CreditWatch status of its ratings on Scottish Re Group Ltd.,
Scottish Re's operating companies, and dependent unwrapped
securitized deals to positive from negative.  Scottish Re has a
'CCC' counterparty credit rating, and Scottish Re's operating
companies have 'B+' counterparty credit and financial strength
ratings.  These ratings were placed on CreditWatch negative on
July 31, when Scottish Re announced poor second-quarter results
and that liquidity was tight.

Fitch Ratings added that Scottish Re Group Ltd.'s ratings remain
on Rating Watch Negative following the announcement that SCT has
entered into an agreement, which will result in a new equity
investment into the company of US$600 million.  SCT's ratings
were placed on Rating Watch Negative on July 31, due to concerns
regarding the company's ability to repay US$115 million of
senior convertible notes that are expected to be put to the
company on Dec. 6.  Ratings on Rating Watch Negative include the
company's BB issuer default rating and the BB- rating on its
4.5% USUS$115 million senior convertible notes.

A.M. Best Co. has downgraded the Financial Strength Rating to B
from B+ and the issuer credit ratings to "bb+" from "bbb-" of
the primary operating insurance subsidiaries of Scottish Re
Group Limited.  A.M. Best has also downgraded the ICR of
Scottish Re to "b" from "bb-" and all of Scottish Re's debt
ratings.  All ratings remain under review with negative
implications.

ALITALIA SPA: Italy Hikes Offered Stake to 39.9%; Amends Terms
------------------------------------------------------------
The Italian government has amended the terms of the tender to
sell part of its stake in national carrier Alitalia S.p.A.,
according to published reports.

Italy, through its Finance Ministry, is now selling 39.9% of
Alitalia, keeping a 10% stake in the carrier, Reuters relays.

Reports say the new terms of the agreement provides that the
buyer must:

   -- retain Alitalia as Italy's national carrier for eight
      years, keeping its brand and logo during the period;

   -- keep Alitalia's headquarters in Italy;

   -- ensure Alitalia has adequate level of local and
      international flights for five years;

The government also gave potential bidders until April 16 to
submit non-binding offers and a five-year business plan for
Alitalia, the Financial Times reports.  The plan, which must
include job levels, will be binding for three years and can only
be amended with the government's approval.

The buyer also has to consult Alitalia's unions and sector trade
associations if it wants to amend its staffing plans, the
Associated Press relates.  The government stressed that it will
not assist the buyer in achieving the business plan.

In a TCR-Europe report on Feb. 19, the Italian government has
chosen five interested parties to participate in the second
round of bidding process for its stake in Alitalia.

MDM BANK: Retail Loan Portfolio Exceeds US$1 Billion
----------------------------------------------------
The retail loan portfolio of MDM Bank had exceeded US$1 billion
as of Feb. 22, 2007.  The Bank's retail loan portfolio mostly
consists of autoloans, where MDM Bank is retaining the
leadership position.

In 2006 the Bank managed to double its auto loan portfolio that
reached US$841 million by the end of the year.  Such result was
based both on the market growth and on the systematic
development of the sales channels (regional network increased
from 180 to 451 points of sales, and the Moscow network -- from
35 to 62) and on the improving of the lending conditions.

In 2006 a number of new auto lending products were launched:

   -- loan for purchase of a used car from an individual without
      involvement of a car dealer;

   -- loan for purchase of a new car on repurchase conditions;

   -- interest-free payment by installments;

   -- loan for purchase of a new foreign-made motor bike;

   -- loan for purchase of a small size vessel.

Mortgage lending is another strategic priority of the retail
business of MDM Bank.  In 2006 the Bankmanaged to increase the
mortgage loan portfolio by three times, up to US$94.4 million.

At present MDM Bank offers programs for lending to individuals
for purchase of residential real estate in the primary and
secondary markets, as well as for purchase of detached
residential houses and townhouses.  In 2006, the Banksoftened
significantly the conditions of mortgage lending, having
increased the lending period up to 25 years and reduced the
initial installment down to 10%.

In 2006 MDM Bank worked a lot to improve the deposit terms and
conditions.  The Bank regularly offers to its clients seasonal
deposits on special terms and in 2006 the Bankoffered "New
Year's Eve" (Novogodny) and "Spring Feeling" deposits (Vesennee
Nastroenie).  Having placed funds on these deposits the clients
received gifts from the Bankin addition to higher interest
rates.

"Our most important tasks are creation of a powerful and
appealing brand, development of an extensive product line,
expansion in the growing regional markets," Michel Perhirin,
Chairman of the Management Board of MDM Bank, said.  "We set
ourselves the objective to increase the retail business by 50%
annually, on average.  The excellent results of 2006 prove the
feasibility of our strategy."

MOBILE TELESYSTEMS: Names Pavel Pavlovsky to Head Ukrainian Unit
----------------------------------------------------------------
Mobile TeleSystems OJSC has appointed Pavel Pavlovsky, vice
president of MTS, as the Head of Business at MTS Ukraine and new
director general of UMC.

UMC's Supervisory Board has accepted Mr. Adam Wojacki's
resignation as Director General of UMC and Head of Business unit
MTS Ukraine effective March 30, 2007.

Mr. Pavlovsky, currently Head of Business unit "MTS Foreign
Subsidiaries," will succeed Mr. Wojacki as the new head of UMC
and Business unit "MTS Ukraine."

Mr. Wojacki, UMC's Director General since October 2005, has
decided to return to his native Poland upon expiration of his
work contract to continue his career in that country's
telecommunications industry.

"After six years as part of UMC's management, Adam decided to go
work in Poland, and we respect his wish," Leonid Melamed,
President and CEO of MTS, said.  "UMC is in excellent financial
shape and is demonstrating high growth rates - an accomplishment
attributable to Adam - and we are grateful to him for his work."

Mr. Pavlovsky has been with MTS since 2003.  Since 2006, as Vice
President and Head of Business unit "Foreign Subsidiaries," he
has supervised the operations of the Company's subsidiaries in
Ukraine (up until January 1, 2007, when UMC became a separate
business unit), Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan, as well as our 49%-
owned joint venture in Belarus.  In particular, under his
immediate direction, he implemented in 2006 the successful
rebranding of MTS operations in three countries. Mr. Pavlovsky
has been a member of UMC's Supervisory Board since 2005.

"The experience that Pavel gained at MTS as Head of Business
unit "Foreign Subsidiaries" in the reorganization of MTS as a
Group will help him implement UMC's strategy that was approved
by the Board of Directors of MTS in December 2006," Mr. Melamed
commented.  "He has demonstrated strong familiarity with the
Ukrainian market throughout his tenure on UMC's Supervisory
Board.  We are confident that Pavel will equal the task at
hand."

"I am glad to have been chosen to this position, and I feel
confident about the potential of MTS' Ukrainian operations," Mr.
Pavlovsky stated.  "UMC is a very strong company, and I will do
my best to apply our strategy of strengthening our market
positions while maintaining financial stability."

"I am grateful to have played a role in the development of the
Ukrainian wireless market, as it is one of the most dynamic
markets in the world," Mr. Wojacki said.  "I am saddened that I
am leaving the Company, but feel that it is the right time to
embark on a new career path with its own unique challenges.  I
wish Pavel all the best in his work and believe that he will
continue the proud tradition of success of UMC."

TRANSNEFT OAO: To Issue US$1-Billion Bonds at Record-Lowest Rate
----------------------------------------------------------------
OAO Transneft will issue around US$1 billion of seven-year bonds
at the lowest-ever rate for a Russian firm, Bloomberg News
reports citing a banker privy with the matter.

Transneft reduced the bonds' yield premium from 60 to 55 basis
points more than the dollar mid-swap rate, a benchmark for
borrowing, the banker told Bloomberg.

Pavel Pikulyev, a credit analyst at Trust Investment Bank, said
Transneft cut the rate since the company is benefiting from a
lack of available debt.  Bloomberg News suggests that Russian
fuel companies do not need to raise capital by borrowing due to
high energy prices.

Mr. Pikulyev, however, commented that "no Russian company has
been able to attract such cheap money for such a long maturity."

Bloomberg News relays that the demand for bonds issued by state-
owned firms has been low, and had driven the yield premium on
OAO Gazprom's bonds to 83 basis points.

Credit Suisse Group and Goldman Sachs Holdings Inc. are managing
the bond issue.

In a TCR-Europe report on Feb. 19, Transneft chief executive
Semyon Vainshtok said the company will issue at least US$500
million in Eurobonds to finance its pipeline construction
projects.  Transneft will construct two large-scale pipelines:
one linking Eastern Siberia to Japan and China; and the
extension of its Baltic Pipeline System, RIA Novosti relays.

                     About the Company

Headquartered in Moscow, Russia, OAO Transneft --
http://www.transneft.ru/-- operates one of the largest networks
of oil pipelines in the world.  The company moves crude oil
through more than 30,000 miles of pipeline stretching across
Eastern Europe and Asia.  Transneft operates a transportation
network consisting of more than 30,000 miles of pipeline, about
330 pump stations, and 934 tankers capable of storing more than
13 million cu. meters of petroleum product.  The company
transports about 93% of the oil produced in Russia.

YUKOS OIL: Could Lose US$13 Billion in Equity Sale, Report Says
---------------------------------------------------------------
OAO Yukos Oil Co. will stand to lose more than US$13 billion in
assets when its stakes in state-controlled Rosneft Oil and
Gazprom Neft are auctioned on March 27 under bankruptcy
proceedings, Jon Nones writes for Resource Investor.

Eduard Rebgun, Yukos' bankruptcy receiver, earlier said that
Yukos plans to auction its 20 percent stake in Gazprom Neft and
9 percent stake in Rosneft.

The Federal Property Fund told media sources that Yukos' stake
in Rosneft would be sold along with promissory notes issued by
former Yukos unit Yuganskneftegaz, Resource Investor relates.

Receivers are reportedly asking RUR2.6 billion more for Gazprom
than it is worth, while Rosneft is offered at RUR18.83 billion,
an amount lower than its market price.  Kommersant says, citing
unofficial reports, the market price for the stake in Gazprom is
set at RUR111.35 billion and the shares in Rosneft at RUR191.92
billion.

The Wall Street Journal revealed last week that Gazprom is in
talks with other investors about possible joint bids for certain
assets, with Gazprom expected to retain controlling stakes.
Possible partners include: Chevron Corp., ENI SpA and ONGC
Videsh Ltd., a subsidiary of India's Oil & Natural Gas Corp.,
WSJ relates.

Meanwhile, Rosneft CEO Sergei Bogdanchikov told the Interfax
news agency last week that his company's decision to bid would
be based on the valuations of the individual assets, Greg
Walters writes for the Wall Street Journal.

Aside from being a potential buyer, Rosneft also holds a
RUR264.6 billion (US$10 billion) claim against Yukos, which
entitled Rosneft a seat in the firm's creditors' committee.

AK&M News earlier reported that Yukos's assets are valued at
US$33 billion minus a 30% discount.  The sale of the company's
remaining assets, which include refineries and two oil
production units, will begin following the completion of the
valuation process this month.

State-owned Rosneft Oil and OAO Gazprom are widely seen as the
most likely contenders for the bulk of nearly 200 Yukos assets
set to be liquidated this year, The Moscow Times relates.

                        About Yukos Oil

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

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

On March 10, 2006, a 14-bank consortium led by Societe Generale
filed a bankruptcy suit in the Moscow Arbitration Court in an
attempt to recover the remainder of a US$1 billion debt under
outstanding loan agreements.  The banks, however, sold the claim
to Rosneft, prompting the Court to replace them with the state-
owned oil company as plaintiff.

On April 13, 2006, court-appointed external manager Eduard
Rebgun filed a chapter 15 petition in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court
for the Southern District of New York (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No.
06-0775), in an attempt to halt the sale of Yukos' 53.7%
ownership interest in Lithuanian AB Mazeikiu Nafta.

On May 26, 2006, Yukos signed a US$1.49 billion Share Sale and
Purchase Agreement with PKN Orlen S.A., Poland's largest oil
refiner, for its Mazeikiu ownership stake.  The move was made a
day after the Manhattan Court lifted an order barring Yukos from
selling its controlling stake in the Lithuanian oil refinery.

On Aug. 1, 2006, the Hon. Pavel Markov of the Moscow Arbitration
Court upheld creditors' vote to liquidate OAO Yukos Oil Co. and
declared what was once Russia's biggest oil firm bankrupt.


* Krasnoyarsk Bankruptcy Cases Rise by 320% in 2006
---------------------------------------------------
The Arbitration Court of Krasnoyarsk has considered 1,300 in
2006, 3.2 times more than in 2005, Newslab reports citing Chief
Arbitrage judge Tamara Mashkina.

Judge Mashkina revealed around 87% of the cases were filed by
the tax police, more than 10% were filed by debtors while around
2.5% were lodged by creditors, Newslab relates.  In 2006, the
court has declared 1,254 debtors bankrupt, 1,088 of which were
completed.  She added that 94% of the bankruptcy cases were
finalized with summary trials.

Ms. Mashkina explained that most bankruptcy cases were filed by
the tax police since they keep clearing the register of debtors
through the arbitration court.  Ms. Mashkina added that around
85% of the debtors in question were declared insolvent.

The judge said that three bankrupt debtors have regained
solvency -- Ordjonikidze Wood Processing Plant, OJSC Minal, and
CJSC Kansk Biochemical Plant.

MOBILE TELESYSTEMS: Names Pavel Pavlovsky to Head Ukrainian Unit
----------------------------------------------------------------
Mobile TeleSystems OJSC has appointed Pavel Pavlovsky, vice
president of MTS, as the Head of Business at MTS Ukraine and new
director general of UMC.

UMC's Supervisory Board has accepted Mr. Adam Wojacki's
resignation as Director General of UMC and Head of Business unit
MTS Ukraine effective March 30, 2007.

Mr. Pavlovsky, currently Head of Business unit "MTS Foreign
Subsidiaries," will succeed Mr. Wojacki as the new head of UMC
and Business unit "MTS Ukraine."

Mr. Wojacki, UMC's Director General since October 2005, has
decided to return to his native Poland upon expiration of his
work contract to continue his career in that country's
telecommunications industry.

"After six years as part of UMC's management, Adam decided to go
work in Poland, and we respect his wish," Leonid Melamed,
President and CEO of MTS, said.  "UMC is in excellent financial
shape and is demonstrating high growth rates - an accomplishment
attributable to Adam - and we are grateful to him for his work."

Mr. Pavlovsky has been with MTS since 2003.  Since 2006, as Vice
President and Head of Business unit "Foreign Subsidiaries," he
has supervised the operations of the Company's subsidiaries in
Ukraine (up until January 1, 2007, when UMC became a separate
business unit), Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan, as well as our 49%-
owned joint venture in Belarus.  In particular, under his
immediate direction, he implemented in 2006 the successful
rebranding of MTS operations in three countries. Mr. Pavlovsky
has been a member of UMC's Supervisory Board since 2005.

"The experience that Pavel gained at MTS as Head of Business
unit "Foreign Subsidiaries" in the reorganization of MTS as a
Group will help him implement UMC's strategy that was approved
by the Board of Directors of MTS in December 2006," Mr. Melamed
commented.  "He has demonstrated strong familiarity with the
Ukrainian market throughout his tenure on UMC's Supervisory
Board.  We are confident that Pavel will equal the task at
hand."

"I am glad to have been chosen to this position, and I feel
confident about the potential of MTS' Ukrainian operations," Mr.
Pavlovsky stated.  "UMC is a very strong company, and I will do
my best to apply our strategy of strengthening our market
positions while maintaining financial stability."

"I am grateful to have played a role in the development of the
Ukrainian wireless market, as it is one of the most dynamic
markets in the world," Mr. Wojacki said.  "I am saddened that I
am leaving the Company, but feel that it is the right time to
embark on a new career path with its own unique challenges.  I
wish Pavel all the best in his work and believe that he will
continue the proud tradition of success of UMC."

ADVANCED MARKETING: Court Grants Final Access to DIP Financing
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Christopher S. Sontchi of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the District of Delaware authorized Advanced Marketing Services
Inc. and its debtor-affiliates, on a final basis, to dip their
hands into the DIP financing facility arranged by Wells Fargo
Foothill Inc.

The Debtors are authorized and empowered to immediately obtain
the Postpetition Financing and incur the Obligations pursuant to
the terms and conditions of the final DIP ruling and the Loan
Documents.

The Debtors are authorized to enter into, execute, deliver,
perform, and comply with all of the terms and covenants of the
Loan Agreement and other Loan Documents, Judge Sontchi notes.

Advanced Marketing Services, Publishers Group Inc., and
Publishers Group West Inc. are borrowers under a Loan and
Security Agreement dated April 27, 2004, with Wells Fargo
Foothill Inc., as agent, and a consortium of lenders.  The
Senior Facility provides for a revolving line of credit up to a
maximum commitment level of US$90,000,000.

Curtis R. Smith, AMS's vice-president and chief financial
officer, related that the Senior Lenders have agreed to continue
to provide liquidity to the Debtors through a DIP Loan Facility,
which carries forward many of the terms of the Senior Facility.

Against this backdrop, the Debtors sought the Court's authority
to obtain from Foothill and the Senior Lenders, though the DIP
Loan Facility, cash advances and other extensions of credit in
an aggregate principal amount of up to US$75,000,000.

Absent immediate and continued availability of credit, the
Debtors' operations will be severely disrupted, and they will be
forced to cease or sharply curtail operations of some or all of
their businesses, which in turn will eliminate the Debtors'
ability to generate operating revenue and the value of their
businesses as a going concern, Mr. Smith said.

Before agreeing to enter into the DIP Loan Facility with
Foothill and the Senior Lenders, the Debtors engaged in numerous
discussions concerning secured and unsecured financing, as well
as equity or other infusions, with several potential investors.
Yet, they received only one proposal for debtor-in-possession
financing other than that offered by the Senior Lenders.  Upon
evaluation, the Debtors determined that the alternate proposal
was not viable.

"No other prospective lender was willing to provide debtor in
possession financing without at least the type of protections
afforded Senior Lenders under the DIP Loan Facility," Mr. Smith
relates.

                    Terms of the DIP Facility

The DIP Facility provides, among other things, that each Lender
with a Revolver Commitment agrees to make Advances to the
Debtors at any one time in amounts not exceeding the Lender's
Pro Rata Share of an amount equal to the lesser of (i) the
Maximum Revolver Amount -- presently set at US$75,000,000 --
less the Letter of Credit Usage, or (ii) the Borrowing Base less
the Letter of Credit Usage.

     Lender                                 Revolver Commitment
     ------                                 -------------------
     Wells Fargo Foothill Inc.                  US$37,500,000
     LaSalle Business Credit, LLC                  16,500,000
     Marathon Structured Finance Fund, L.P.         8,250,000
     Capitalsource Finance LLC                     12,750,000

The Issuing Lender agrees to issue Letters of Credit for the
account of the Borrowers or to purchase or execute an L/C
Undertaking with respect to letters of credit issued by an
Underlying Issuer for the account of the Borrowers.  The Issuing
Lender will have no obligation to issue an L/C if any of these
events would result after giving effect to the issuance of the
requested L/C:

   (1) the L/C Usage would exceed the Borrowing Base less the
       outstanding amount of Advances; or

   (2) the L/C Usage would exceed US$10,000,000; or

   (3) the L/C Usage would exceed the Maximum Revolver Amount
       less the outstanding amount of Advances.

The Borrowing Base under the DIP Loan Agreement determines the
maximum amount that may be borrowed as Advances.  It is a
function of inventory and account values ranging up to 85% of
appraised liquidation values and is subject to various reserves,
including a Dilution Reserve in an amount sufficient to reduce
the advance rate against Eligible Accounts by 1 percentage point
for each percentage point by which Dilution is in excess of 5%.

The interest rate on all Obligations will be calculated based on
Wells Fargo Bank, National Association's prime rate plus 3.50%.

The DIP Agreement was scheduled to close by Jan. 4.  The
postpetition facility will continue in full force and effect for
a term ending in July.  The Lender Group, upon the election of
the Required Lenders, will have the right to terminate its
obligations under the DIP Loan Agreement immediately and without
notice on the occurrence and during the continuation of an Event
of Default.

The proceeds of the Advances may be used (1) on the Closing
Date, to pay transactional fees, costs, and expenses incurred in
connection with the DIP Loan Agreement, the other Loan
Documents, and contemplated transactions including the funding
in whole or in part of the Carve Out Reserve Fund, and (ii) for
the Debtors' lawful and permitted business and general corporate
purposes including the financing of working capital needs and
capital expenditures, in accordance with the Debtors' 14-week
Budget related to the DIP Loan Facility.

The Budget runs through March 30, and sets forth the
expenditures that the Debtors critically need to make to allow
them to continue to operate.

The Borrowers agree to pay a variety of fees and charges to
Foothill:

   -- a Letter of Credit fee accruing at 3.50% per annum times
      the Daily Balance of the undrawn amount of all outstanding
      L/C;

   -- on the first day of an each month, an Unused Line Fee
      equal to 0.375% per annum times the result of (a) the
      Maximum Revolver Amount, less (b) the sum of (1) the
      average Daily Balance of Advances that were outstanding
      during the immediately preceding month, plus (2) the
      average Daily Balance of the L/C Usage during the
      immediately preceding month;

   -- a US$750,000 closing fee, which will be fully earned, due,
      and payable on the Closing Date;

   -- a US$5,000 servicing fee per quarter, due and payable, in
      arrears, on the first day of each quarter, commencing with
      the first day of the quarter immediately following the
      Petition Date; and

   -- certain audit, appraisal and valuation fees and charges
      relating to audits and appraisals performed by personnel
      employed by Foothill.

The postpetition obligations due the Lenders by the Debtors will
be entitled to the super-administrative priority afforded under
Section 364(c)(1) of the Bankruptcy Code.

The Lenders' liens and administrative claims will be subject to
a carve out for (i) the fees payable to the Clerk of the
Bankruptcy Court and to the Office of the United States Trustee
relating to the Bankruptcy Cases; and (ii) Professional Fee
Carve Out Expenses of US$2,000,000 prior to a Payoff Event and
US$3,000,000 afterwards.

Moreover, the Debtors covenant that they will not:

   (a) on any measurement date where the Projected Operating
       Cash Flow is a positive amount, have Actual Operating
       Cash Flow for the relevant period that is both less than
       85% of the Projected Operating Cash Flow, and at least
       US$2,500,000 less than Projected Operating Cash Flow, for
       the period; or

   (b) on any measurement date where the Projected Operating
       Cash Flow is a negative amount, have Actual Operating
       Cash Flow for the relevant period that is both less than
       115% of the Projected Operating Cash Flow, and at least
       US$2,500,000 less than the Projected Operating Cash Flow,
       for the period.

Mark D. Collins, Esq., at Richards, Layton & Finger, P.A., in
Wilmington, Delaware, clarified that the terms and covenants set
forth in the Senior Facility are amended and restated in their
entirety by the terms and conditions set forth in the DIP Loan
Agreement.  However, the DIP Loan Agreement does not extinguish
the obligations for the payment of money outstanding under the
Senior Facility, or for the discharge or release of any
security.  Rather, the DIP Loan Agreement provides for the
satisfaction of the prepetition obligations owed to the Senior
Lenders through application of Cash Collateral postpetition -- a
"roll-up" of the prepetition debt.

The Roll-up provision provides that each Senior Lender is
entitled to apply any and all proceeds of the Collateral or the
Senior Collateral or any other consideration it received in
respect of the Senior Obligations in accordance with the Senior
Facility and the Loan Documents, which includes the application
of Senior Collateral -- first, on account of the Senior
Obligations until the Senior Obligations are paid and satisfied,
and then on account of the Postpetition Obligations.
Furthermore, all outstanding L/C under the Senior Facility are
deemed to be L/C and Obligations under the DIP Credit Agreement.
Mr. Collins said the Debtors have determined that this provision
is appropriate given that the Senior Lenders are substantially
over-secured.

                  Qualified Transaction Timeline

The Debtors agree with the DIP Lenders to file within 10 days
after the Petition Date a qualified transaction motion calling
for the sale of substantially all or a significant portion of
their business, or a refinancing or debt or equity investment or
other recapitalization.

Within 20 days after the filing of the Qualified Transaction
Motion, the Debtors will attempt to obtain approval of
competitive bidding procedures and to identify a "stalking
horse" bidder in the event they pursue a sale.

The DIP Lenders want the Qualified Transaction Motion approved
within 45 days after the filing.  They also want to receive cash
proceeds from the Qualified Transaction within 50 days.

Mr. Collins said the Debtors believe that the Qualified
Transaction provisions are reasonable given the overall benefits
of the DIP Facility, and given that the Senior Lenders were
unwilling to extend financing without those provisions.

Foothill is represented in the Debtors' cases by Paul S. Arrow,
Esq., and William S. Brody, Esq., at Buchalter Nemer, in Los
Angeles, California, and Kurt F. Gwynne, Esq., at Reed Smith,
LLP, in Wilmington, Delaware.

ADVANCED MARKETING: Gets Final Access to Use Cash Collateral
------------------------------------------------------------
The Hon. Christopher S. Sontchi of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the District of Delaware authorized Advanced Marketing Services
Inc. and its debtor-affiliates, on a final basis, to use the
Secured Lenders' Cash Collateral.

The Debtors are authorized to enter into, execute, deliver,
perform, and comply with all of the terms and covenants of the
Loan Agreement and other Loan Documents, Judge Sontchi says.

The Loan and Security Agreement dated April 27, 2004, among the
Debtors, Wells Fargo Foothill Inc., as agent, and a syndicate of
lenders, is secured by a first priority security interest on
substantially all of the Debtors' assets, all products and
proceeds of the assets, and all cash proceeds and all other cash
equivalents and cash collateral.

Curtis R. Smith, AMS's vice-president and chief financial
officer, related that the Senior Facility imposes numerous
restrictions on the Debtors' ability to access their cash.

Before the Petition Date, virtually all of the Debtors' cash
from operations was swept daily into an account controlled by
Foothill and applied to the loans outstanding, then re-advanced
as loans in accordance with the borrowing base formula as
established and adjusted by Foothill from time to time.

As of the Petition Date, the borrowing base formula under the
Senior Facility totaled US$64,764,447.  In contrast, Mr. Smith
says, the Senior Lenders are secured by approximately
US$147,500,000 in accounts receivable, approximately
US$72,500,000 in inventory, as well as other valuable collateral
including Advanced Marketing Services' interests in foreign
subsidiaries, fixed assets and intellectual property.

As of the Petition Date, the Debtors were obligated to the
Senior Lenders for the principal amount drawn on the Revolving
Loans plus accrued and unpaid interest and certain additional
unpaid fees and expenses totaling US$41,514,347.

Pursuant to an Inter-company Subordination Agreement between the
Debtors and certain of their subsidiaries, as Obligors, and
Foothill, the parties agreed to subordinate the payment of all
indebtedness, liabilities and other obligations of each Obligor
owing to any other Obligor to the payment of the US$41,514,347
Indebtedness.

Mr. Smith reminded the Court that the Debtors have secured a
US$75,000,000 postpetition facility from Foothill.  In that
regard, the Debtors obtained the express consent of the Senior
Lenders to use the prepetition Cash Collateral in connection
with the DIP Loan Facility.

Accordingly, the Debtors sought the Court's authority to use the
Secured Lenders' Cash Collateral.

To secure all postpetition obligations due to the Lenders by the
Debtors, the Debtors propose to grant the Lenders a lien with
priority and senior to all other liens, other than validly
perfected prepetition liens that would otherwise be senior and
prior to the Senior Lenders' prepetition liens, on all of the
Debtors' prepetition, present and future assets.  Moreover, upon
the occurrence of a Default or Event of Default, each Borrower
waives any right to use Cash Collateral.

The administrators stated that it has not been possible to

still negotiating on the sale of the company's Norwood site as a
going concern.

"It is very disappointing that we have to implement the closure
of the majority of Brooks' linen operations and we would like to
thank employees, customers and suppliers for their support to
date.  We remain hopeful that we will shortly be able to
announce the sale of the Norwood business," Rob Lewis, joint
administrator and director at PricewaterhouseCoopers
LLP disclosed.

"We have also put in place arrangements to provide staff that
are being made redundant with support to ensure that their
resulting claims can be agreed and paid as soon as possible,"
Mr. Lewis added.

       transactions;

    -- Debtor Dura Convertible Systems, Inc.'s settlement

EMI GROUP: Buyout Firms Eye Possible Takeover Deal
--------------------------------------------------
Fortress Investment Group LLC, Apollo and One Equity are among
the buyout firms interested in EMI Group Plc, Mark Kleinman of
the Sunday Telegraph reports.

People familiar with the matter told the Sunday Telegraph that
Fortress is undertaking detailed work on EMI ahead of a possible
approach to the record labels of Robbie Williams and Madonna.

Permira Advisers LLP, which approached EMI on November 2006, was
also expected to review its offer, the report states.

However, the Telegraph suggests, it is possible none of the
buyout firms will make formal approaches to the EMI board.

Warner Music Group Corp. approached EMI on Jan. 24, after it
obtained the support of Brussels-based Impala, a trade group for
independent European record labels ending its opposition to a
Warner-EMI merger, reports say.  WMG clarified Feb. 21 that any
possible takeover offer for EMI Group PLC is likely to be solely
in cash.

In 2006, EMI and Warner were locked in a GBP2.3 billion takeover
battle.  The deal was halted in June 2006 following the
annulment of the 2004 Sony-BMG tie-up by a European Court.

Analysts believed that an EMI-Warner merger could generate cost
savings of about GBP150 million a year.

                            About EMI

Headquartered in London, United Kingdom, EMI Group PLC --
http://www.emigroup.com/-- is the world's largest independent
music company, operating directly in 50 countries and with

China, and Hungary.  The group employs over 6,600 people.
Revenues in 2005 were near EUR2 billion and operating profit
generated was over EUR225 million.

At March 31, 2006, EMI Group's consolidated balance sheet
revealed GBP1.817 billion in total assets, GBP2.544 billion in
total liabilities and GBP726.6 million in shareholders' deficit.

                        *     *     *

According to a TCR-Europe report on Jan. 17, Moody's Investors
Service downgraded EMI Group Plc's Corporate Family and senior
debt ratings to Ba3 from Ba2.  All ratings remain under review
for possible further downgrade.

As reported in the TCR-LA on Feb. 19, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services kept the U.K.-based music major EMI Group PLC's ratings
at BB-/Watch Neg/B, after the company announced it expects
revenues in its recorded music division to decline by 15% in the
fiscal year ended March 31, 2007, at constant currencies.  The
ratings also remain on CreditWatch with negative implications,
where they were placed on Feb. 5, 2007.

GETTY IMAGES: Gets Notice of Event of Default for Filing Failure
----------------------------------------------------------------
Getty Images Inc. disclosed in a regulatory filing with the U.S.
Securities and Exchange Commission that on Feb. 21 it received
notice of an Event of Default related to the Company's failure
to file its Third Quarter Report.

The company had, on Nov. 29, 2006, received two notices of a
purported default from certain holders of the Company's
US$265 million aggregate principal amount of 0.50% Convertible
Subordinated Debentures, Series B due 2023.

The notices were received from holders who claimed to hold more
than 25% in principal amount of the outstanding Debentures
asserting that the company's failure to file its Quarterly
Report on Form 10-Q for the third quarter of 2006 with the SEC
by the prescribed filing date under SEC regulations was a
default under Section 17.01 of the Indenture dated as of Dece.
16, 2004, between the company, as issuer, and The Bank of New
York, as Trustee, relating to the Debentures.

Section 17.01 incorporates by reference Section 314(a) of the
Trust Indenture Act of 1940.  The notices of default demanded
that the company cure the purported default within 60 days from
their receipt, after which such default would allegedly develop
into an "Event of Default," as defined in the Indenture.  The
company did not cure the purported default within 60 days from
receipt of the notices of purported default.

The company does not believe that it has failed to perform any
of its obligations under the Indenture because the Indenture
does not contain an express covenant requiring the company to
provide the Trustee or the bondholders with periodic reports
such as the Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the third quarter
of 2006.  While Section 314(a) of the TIA is incorporated into
the Indenture by virtue of Section 17.01 thereof, the company
does not believe that the TIA requires periodic reports to be
filed with the SEC or provided within any prescribed period of
time.  Consequently, in the company's view, these notices of
default are without merit.

Because the company has received a notice of an "Event of
Default" from the Trustee, the Trustee or holders of at least
25% in aggregate principal amount of the Debentures then
outstanding could declare all unpaid principal and accrued
interest on the Debentures then outstanding to be immediately
due and payable.  The company believes that if the Debentures
were to be accelerated, it would have adequate financial
resources to pay any unpaid principal and any interest that
would then be due on the Debentures and also would have the
option of contesting the legal basis for the notices of default
and any such acceleration.

                         *     *     *

Moody's Investors Service upgraded the credit ratings of Getty
Images, Inc. and changed the ratings outlook to stable from
positive.  The upgrade in the corporate family rating to Ba1
from Ba2 reflected Getty's leading market position, improving
credit metrics, impressive operating margins and good secular
growth trends in the stock imagery market.  Moody's also
upgraded its rating on the company's US$265 million series B
convertible subordinated notes due 2023, to Ba2 from Ba3.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter - Europe on Dec. 6,
2006, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its ratings on
Seattle, Wash.-based visual imagery company Getty Images Inc.,
including lowering the corporate credit rating to 'B+' from
'BB', and placed the ratings on CreditWatch with developing
implications.

The rating and CreditWatch actions came after the company
announced that it had received notices from bondholders that its
delayed third-quarter SEC Form 10-Q filing constituted an event
of default.  CreditWatch with developing implications indicates
that the rating could be either raised or lowered.

As of Sept. 30, 2006, Getty had US$265 million of convertible
notes outstanding.


GETTY IMAGES: To Acquire WireImage for US$200 Million in Cash
-------------------------------------------------------------
Getty Images Inc. has entered into an agreement to purchase
WireImage for approximately US$200 million in cash.  The deal
will also include MediaVast Inc., the owner of WireImage, and
sub-brands FilmMagic and Contour Photos.  The acquisition is
subject to regulatory review and other customary closing
conditions.

Getty Images says that the acquisition is expected to support
the company's stated strategy of accelerating the growth of its
editorial imagery business.

"The demand for entertainment, event and celebrity imagery is
growing exponentially, and Getty Images has determined that
there are great growth opportunities in the category," said
Jonathan Klein, co-founder and CEO of Getty Images.  "A key
focus for us in the last several years has been to grow our
editorial imagery business, particularly in international
markets.  The proposed acquisition of WireImage will enable us
to develop new products and services, including podcasts,
editorial video, multimedia, mobile, consumer offerings and
exclusive imagery.  We are confident that the proposed
acquisition will help us expand our global entertainment and
celebrity imagery business, allowing us to satisfy growing
customer demand in the U.S. and abroad."

Under the agreement, WireImage's founding photographers and key
executives have signed long term agreements to remain with
WireImage and Getty Images following the acquisition.

The acquisition will bring together two leading innovators
within the entertainment imagery category.  Getty Images has
made entertainment and celebrity imagery accessible to a growing
global entertainment marketplace through its industry-leading
Web site, featuring search in local languages and purchase in
local currencies, and leads the industry in delivery speed,
service and international distribution.  WireImage has built a
reputation for depth and breadth of entertainment coverage and
has an innovative and customer-friendly Web site.

Several of the companies' product offerings complement each
other. For example, Getty Images' Exclusive by Getty Images
offering, launched in 2006, and MediaVast's Contour Photos will
combine to give customers unprecedented access to celebrity
portraiture and compelling editorial features.

The business of entertainment imagery has grown significantly in
recent years, and like the many other players in the space,
Getty Images has benefited.  The company has targeted this
category for continued growth, especially in non-English
speaking countries, and the acquisition of WireImage is expected
to help the company expand the entertainment and celebrity
imagery segment.

Getty Images plans to maintain MediaVast's three brands:
WireImage, FilmMagic, and Contour Photos, and its Web sites.
WireImage's team and Getty Images will continue to generate new
imagery for their respective collections and make it available
for online distribution, both in the U.S. and globally.

"We are very excited to be joining Getty Images," said Jason
Nevader, co-founder and CEO of MediaVast.  "Under the Getty
Images umbrella our customers will be able to take advantage of
Getty Images' global, localized e-commerce platform.  Getty
Images' breadth of products and services, including their vast
archival collections, will give our customers more choice and
richer, more accessible content."

The company estimates, on a preliminary basis, that the
acquisition will be neutral to earnings per share, excluding
amortization, in 2007 and accretive to earnings per share on a
GAAP basis in 2008.  WireImage's portfolio includes an online
archive of over 8.5 million images.

NMI SECURITY: Debt & Lack of Funds Send Firm Into Liquidation
-------------------------------------------------------------
NMI Security Plc has gone into liquidation due to rising debts
and insufficient equity funding, AFX News reports.

In a statement via the London Stock Exchange, NMI called for an
Extraordinary General Meeting of shareholders at 2:00 p.m. on
March 14 to:

   -- place the company in liquidation and appoint a liquidator;
      and

   -- present a report on the company's current financial
      position and status.

NMI hopes to secure funding prior to the meeting but did not say
whether it is in talks with interested parties, AFX News
reports.

"We're still trying to get funding, and if the funding goes
through we'll withdraw the resolutions," Paul Nathan, NMI's
chief executive told AFX News.

Meanwhile, NMI disclosed that will sell its 40% stake in Nex
Vision SAS to the former owners for EUR140,000.  The company
invested in Nex Vision SAS in 2006, with a view to launching a
new product together.  Nex Vision SAS, however, encountered
technological problems delivering a pilot system, causing delays
and forcing NMI's exit from the firm.

NMI's shares had been suspended on AIM pending clarification of
its financial position, which was negatively affected by its
setback with Nex Vision.

The company inked an exclusive supply agreement with Nex Vision
in late 2005, following the collapse of IPIX Corp.

REACH GB: High Court Orders Winding-Up Following CIB Probe
----------------------------------------------------------
The High Court in Manchester ordered the winding-up of Reach GB
Ltd. following an investigation by the Companies Investigation
Branch of the Insolvency Service.

CIB's investigation found that the company had been misleading
the public by giving the impression that monies they received
for the wall planner were sent to charity and that there
appeared to have been threats to collect debts incurred for non-
existent services.  Sometimes those threatened had not even
agreed to place adverts.

In making the Winding-up Order, District Judge Needham said that
evidence presented by CIB showed that the company recklessly
misled advertisers, failed to provide goods and services despite
receiving payments totaling GBP416,000, for which no
advertisements were published.

"There has also been misleading of the public in respect of
claims that monies are sent to charity.  There also appears to
have been threats to collect debts incurred in respect of non-
existing services and a failure to cooperate with the Secretary
of State during the investigation." Mr. Needham continued.

"This is a simple case of the public being gulled out of money,"
he added.

Headquartered in Manchester, England, Reach GB Ltd. carried on a
business of the type that has become known as "Support
Publishing".  In this instance Reach sold advertising space in a
business-to-business safety awareness wall planner and booklet.

VIRGIN MEDIA: Anticipates Withdrawal of Sky's Basic Channels
------------------------------------------------------------
Virgin Media Inc. (fka NTL Inc.) anticipates a withdrawal of
Sky's basic channels including: Sky One, Sky Two, Sky Three, Sky
News and Sky Sports News at the end of February following an
intensive series of meetings last week.

The nature of these negotiations leads the company to believe
that this outcome has been deliberately engineered by Sky in
order to suppress competition and coerce Virgin Media's
customers into switching to its service by denying them access
to the basic channels.  However, these negotiations do not
impact Sky's premium sports and movies channels, which will
continue to be available to Virgin Media customers.

This view is reinforced by Sky's decision to broadcast, at the
height of negotiations on Feb. 12, a series of promotions
claiming that the channels were about to disappear from Virgin
Media's network.  This was nothing more than a heavy-handed
attempt to exert undue influence on the negotiating process.

Despite a dramatic and sustained decline in the basic channels'
popularity in Virgin Media households and the disappointing
performance of some recent programming, Sky has consistently
demanded a carriage fee more than double the existing
arrangement.  Virgin Media recognizes that the basic channels
have been part of its TV line up for many years and has
responded with a series of offers designed to ensure they remain
so.  Sky, however, continues to demand a price that bears no
relation to the channels' popularity and is radically out of
line with the way it values competitors' channels on its own
network.

It remains Virgin Media's position that negotiations are ongoing
and the company continues to seek an agreement on terms that
make commercial sense for both parties.  However, as things
stand, Sky's demands offer no prospect of being able to reach a
commercially viable agreement to continue carriage of these
channels on Virgin Media's platform.

If Sky withdraws its channels, Virgin Media will divert any
money saved into continuing the transformation of our TV service
with an extensive range of new channels and programming.  This
will include further additions to our existing on-demand library
and ensure our TV service more than matches anything on offer
from Sky.

For Sky meanwhile withdrawal will mean an estimated GBP45
million a year reduction in advertising revenues, over and above
the subscription fees they will forego.  Their willingness to do
so speaks volumes about their desire to suppress meaningful
competition.

This follows a largely overlooked press statement by Sky on
Feb. 8 disclosing plans to remove a number of free channels from
the Freeview platform, depriving over 7 million Freeview viewers
access to those channels.  Sky indicated that it intends to use
these Freeview slots to offer four subscription channels on
terms that have not yet been announced.

Commenting on the anticipated withdrawal of Sky's basic
channels, Steve Burch, President and CEO of Virgin Media said:
"Throughout its history, Virgin has challenged the attempts of
dominant corporations to manipulate markets, stifle competition
and dictate consumer choice," Steve Burch, President and CEO of
Virgin Media.  "It has done so simply by giving consumers a
better deal and Virgin Media is going to do the same.  Sky's
behavior is a heavy-handed and anti-competitive response to that
challenge and consumer choice has been reduced as a result.  I'm
pleased, however, that at a time when they're taking content
away, Virgin Media is giving people more."

Since its launch on Feb. 8, Virgin Media has disclosed plans to
enhance dramatically its digital TV service with a combination
of new programming and cutting edge, on-demand technology.  As a
result, in addition to over 100 traditional broadcast channels,
its digital TV customers now have access to over 2,700 hours of
on-demand programming, including a huge range of hit TV shows
and highlights from the previous week's broadcast schedules.

Recent content deals with the leading studios for major hit
shows such as West Wing, CSI, The OC, Nip/Tuck, together with
our competitively priced packages incorporating Sky Sports and
Movies and the launch of Virgin Central, means that Virgin Media
more than matches any content available to customers in the pay-
TV market.  Virgin Media aims to build on its leading position
and double its offering to 6000 hours of on-demand content over
the coming months.

Headquartered in London, England, Virgin Media Inc. (fka NTL
Inc.) (NASDAQ: VMED) -- http://virginmedia.com/-- provides

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.
