KNOLL INC: Paying US$0.11/Share Cash Dividend on Sept. 28
---------------------------------------------------------
Knoll Inc.'s board of directors declared a quarterly cash
dividend of US$0.11 per share payable Sept. 28, 2007, to
stockholders of record as of Sept. 14, 2007.
    
Based in East Greenville, Pennsylvania, Knoll Inc. (NYSE: KNL)

QUEBECOR WORLD: Moody's Downgrades Corporate Family Rating to B3
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded Quebecor World Inc.'s
corporate family rating to B3 from B2 and the senior unsecured
ratings for subsidiary companies, Quebecor World Capital
Corporation and Quebecor World Capital ULC, also to B3 from B2,
on concerns that deteriorating business conditions will
adversely affect margins for an extended period with free cash
generation and debt reduction significantly deferred.

In addition, with the company having disclosed it may require
further accommodation from its bank lenders, there is
significant uncertainty as to how this will impact ongoing
access to liquidity.  With this, in turn, potentially impacting
the company's ability to address its operational issues, the
ratings outlook remains negative.  This covenant compliance
matter was a component of Moody's June 18, 2007, downgrade of
Quebecor World's speculative grade liquidity rating to SGL-4
(indicating weak liquidity).  However, given the passage of time
and the continued lack of resolution, and now, very difficult
credit market conditions, the company's liquidity position has
deteriorated and weighs against the long term debt ratings.  
This may have further ratings' impact if not addressed
satisfactorily.

Downgrades:

Issuer: Quebecor World, Inc.

  -- Corporate Family Rating, Downgraded to B3 from B2

  -- Senior Unsecured Regular Bond/Debenture, Downgraded to B3
     (LGD4, 55) from B2 (LGD4, 50)

Issuer: Quebecor World Capital Corporation

  -- Senior Unsecured Regular Bond/Debenture, Downgraded to B3
     (LGD4, 55) from B2 (LGD4, 50)

Issuer: Quebecor World Capital ULC

  -- Senior Unsecured Regular Bond/Debenture, Downgraded to B3
     (LGD4, 55) from B2 (LGD4, 50)

Withdrawals:

Issuer: Quebecor World (USA) Inc.

  -- Senior Subordinated Conv./Exch. Bond/Debenture, Withdrawn,
     previously rated Caa1 (LGD6, 94)

Moody's had previously expected QWI's 2007 TD/EBITDA to exceed
7x. It was also expected that 2007 FCF would be materially
negative. However, it now appears that margin pressure will
cause TD/EBITDA to approach 8x, and, assuming that revenue and
margins can improve in 2008 and beyond, and, at the same time,
that capital expenditures return to maintenance levels, it will
be 2009 before the company may be able to generate positive free
cash flow.

While certain other credit metrics are expected to provide
rating signals supporting a higher rating, Moody's will focus on
free cash flow and debt reduction until such time as the company
demonstrates a sustainable ability to repay debt from internal
sources.  Similarly, until the company implements a
comprehensive liquidity plan that includes credit facilities
that provide substantial funding, are committed for an extended
period, and are accessible at all times, the company's ability
to execute its business plan will be viewed as somewhat limited
and there will be an adverse ratings impact.

DELPHI CORP: Settles with GM; Files Reorganization Plan
-------------------------------------------------------
Delphi Corp. signed definitive settlement and restructuring
agreements with General Motors Corp. and filed its proposed
Joint Plan of Reorganization and related Disclosure Statement
with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New
York.

Delphi's comprehensive settlement with GM resolves all
outstanding issues between Delphi and GM including: litigation
commenced in March 2006, by Delphi, to terminate certain supply
agreements with GM; all potential claims and disputes with GM
arising out of the separation of Delphi from GM in 1999; certain
post-separation claims and disputes between Delphi and GM; the
proofs of claim filed by GM against Delphi in Delphi's Chapter
11 cases; GM's treatment under Delphi's proposed plan of
reorganization; and various other legacy and ordinary course
business matters between the companies.

The proposed Plan and related Disclosure Statement includes
detailed information regarding the treatment of claims and
interests, the company's five-year business plan, events leading
up to and during Delphi's Chapter 11 cases, and an outline of
the plan investor agreement and rights offering.  Delphi's
emergence timetable calls for the company to obtain exit
financing commitments early in the fourth quarter of 2007.

The proposed plan also outlines Delphi's transformation
centering around five core areas:

   -- Agreements reached with all principal U.S. labor unions
      which create a competitive arena in which to conduct its
      business;

   -- Agreements with General Motors outlining its financial
      support for certain legacy and labor costs and certain
      future business commitments to Delphi;

   -- Delphi's future product portfolio and manufacturing
      footprint;

   -- Delphi's planned transformation of its salaried workforce
      and progress in reducing SG&A to support its realigned
      portfolio; and

   -- Delphi's plans to fund its U.S. defined benefit programs.

"The filing of Delphi's Plan of Reorganization and Disclosure
Statement is a significant milestone for our company," Rodney
O'Neal, Delphi CEO and president, said.  "Each of the numerous
moving pieces to our transformation are coming together.  In
recent months, we have announced a new equity investment
agreement with our Plan Investors and agreed on consensual
distributions with our Statutory Committees for both our
creditors and equity holders.  Additionally, we completed our
labor transformation with our six U.S. unions, settled complex
multi-district ERISA and securities litigation, and finalized
comprehensive settlement and restructuring agreements with GM.  
While achieving these transformation objectives, we also
continued to support our customers and deliver operational
excellence every step of the way.  Delphi has made great
progress toward its stated transformation goals and is intensely
focused on completing the remaining items in order to
successfully emerge from Chapter 11 as a more competitive
technology leader."

               Plan of Reorganization Framework

Delphi's plan of reorganization is based upon a series of global
settlements and compromises that involve every major group of
constituents in Delphi's reorganization cases, including:
Delphi, its principal U.S. labor unions, GM, the statutory
creditors' and equity holders' committees appointed in Delphi's
Chapter 11 cases and the lead plaintiffs in certain securities
and ERISA multidistrict litigation.

The Plan provides for a recovery through a plan distribution of
reorganized Delphi common stock and cash amounting to the
principal amount of the claim plus accrued interest at a
negotiated plan value for general unsecured creditors, and
agreed upon distributions to other classes of creditors and
interests.  GM will receive a $2.7 billion cash distribution in
satisfaction of certain of its claims against Delphi.  As part
of the settlement of the multidistrict ERISA and securities
litigation, distributions will be made under three plan classes
using plan currency in the same form, ratio, and treatment as
what will be used to satisfy the holders of general unsecured
claims.  Allowed claims and interests for these three plan
classes total $24.5 million for the ERISA plan class and a total
of $204 million for the debt securities class and the common
stock securities class.  Holders of existing Delphi common stock
will receive a distribution of shares of reorganized Delphi,
five-year warrants exercisable to purchase shares of reorganized
Delphi, and transferable and non-transferable subscription
rights to purchase shares of reorganized Delphi.

The settlements embodied by the Plan feature rights offerings
that will be conducted after confirmation of the Plan and which
will allow Delphi's common stockholders, who are holders of
shares of Delphi common stock as of the date when the
Confirmation Hearing commences, to purchase,

   (i) through the exercise of transferable rights,
       approximately 28% of the common stock of reorganized  
       Delphi at a discount to the negotiated plan value, and

  (ii) through the exercise of non-transferable rights, up to
       $572 million worth of shares (in the aggregate) of
       reorganized Delphi at the negotiated plan enterprise
       value price of $45 per share.

The rights offerings are expected to commence following
confirmation of Delphi's plan of reorganization and conclude 30
days thereafter prior to Delphi's emergence from Chapter 11
reorganization.

The rights will be issued only to those individuals who are
holders of Delphi's existing common stock as of the date the
Confirmation Hearing commences and after the Bankruptcy Court
has confirmed the company's Plan and the SEC has approved
Delphi's registration statement for the Rights Offerings.

                     Labor Transformation

Delphi previously negotiated and signed Memoranda of
Understanding with each of its six U.S. unions and GM covering
site plans, workforce transition as well as other comprehensive
transformational issues.  In addition, pursuant to the attrition
agreements, over 24,000 employees voluntarily retired, accepted
buy outs or opted to flow back to GM within provisions of
negotiated attrition plans.  Delphi will continue to own and
operate four UAW-represented sites, three IUE-CWA-represented
sites and one USW-represented site.  Additionally, 25 North
American sites will be sold or closed.

                    GM Settlement Agreements

Pursuant to the company's Plan, subject to Bankruptcy Court
approval as part of the plan confirmation process, Delphi and GM
have entered into comprehensive settlement agreements consisting
of a Global Settlement Agreement.  Most obligations set forth in
the GSA are to be performed upon the occurrence of the Effective
Date of the Plan or as soon as reasonably possible after.  By
contrast, resolution of most of the matters addressed in the MRA
will require a significantly longer period that will extend for
a number of years after confirmation of the Plan.

The GSA is intended to resolve outstanding issues among Delphi
and GM that have arisen or may arise before Delphi's emergence
from Chapter 11, and will be implemented by Delphi and GM in the
short term.  The GSA addresses, among other things, commitments
by Delphi and GM regarding OPEB and pension obligations, other
GM contributions with respect to labor matters, releases, and
claims treatment.

   -- GM will make significant contributions to cover costs  
      associated with certain post-retirement benefits for
      certain of the company's active and retired hourly
      employees, including health care and life insurance;

   -- Delphi will freeze its Hourly Pension Plan as soon as
      possible following the Effective Date, as provided in the
      union settlement agreements, and GM's Hourly Pension Plan
      will become responsible for certain future costs related
      to Delphi's Hourly Pension Plan;

   -- Delphi will transfer certain assets and liabilities of
      its Hourly Pension Plan to the GM Hourly Pension Plan, as
      set forth in the union term sheets;

   -- Shortly after the effective date, GM will receive an
      interest bearing note from Delphi in the amount of
      $1.5 billion to be paid within 10 days of its issuance;

   -- GM will make significant contributions to Delphi to fund
      various special attrition programs, consistent with the
      provisions of the union Memorandum of Understanding;

   -- GM and certain related parties and Delphi and certain
      related parties will exchange broad, global releases
      (which will not apply to certain surviving claims as set
      forth in the GSA); and

   -- On the Effective Date, subject to certain surviving
      claims in the GSA and in satisfaction of various GM
      claims, Delphi will pay GM $2.7 billion, and the GM Proof
      of Claim will be settled.

The MRA is intended to govern certain aspects of Delphi and GM's
commercial relationship following Delphi's emergence from
Chapter 11.  The MRA addresses, among other things, the scope of
GM's existing and future business awards to Delphi and related
pricing agreements and sourcing arrangements, GM commitments
with respect to reimbursement of specified ongoing labor costs,
the disposition of certain Delphi facilities, and the treatment
of existing agreements between Delphi and GM.

Through the MRA, Delphi and GM have agreed to certain terms and
conditions governing, among other things:
     
   -- the scope of existing business awards, related pricing
      agreements, and extensions of certain existing supply
      agreements;

   -- GM's ability to move production to alternative suppliers;
      and

   -- Reorganized Delphi's rights to bid and qualify for new
      business awards.

   a) GM will make significant, ongoing contributions to Delphi
      and Reorganized Delphi to reimburse the company for labor
      costs in excess of $26 per hour at specified
      manufacturing facilities;

   b) GM and Delphi have agreed to certain terms and conditions
      concerning the sale of certain of its non-core
      businesses;

   c) GM and Delphi have agreed to certain additional terms and
      conditions if certain of its businesses and facilities
      are not sold or wound down by certain future dates; and

   d) GM and Delphi have agreed to the treatment of certain
      contracts between Delphi and GM arising from Delphi's
      separation from GM and other contracts between Delphi and
      GM.

                       Product Portfolio

Delphi plans to focus its product portfolio on those core
technologies for which the company has significant competitive
advantages and can provide the greatest support and
differentiation to its customers in automotive, aftermarket,
consumer electronics, and adjacent markets such as commercial
vehicles, medical systems, computers, aerospace and
transportation products.  To that end, the company is focusing
the organization on these core strategic product lines:

   -- Controls & Security (Body Security, Mechatronics, and
      Displays);

   -- Electrical/Electronic Architecture (Electrical/Electronic
      Distribution Systems, Connection Systems, and Electrical
      Centers);

   -- Entertainment & Communications (Audio, Navigation, and
      Telematics);

   -- Powertrain (Diesel and Gas Engine Management Systems);

   -- Safety (Occupant Protection and Safety Electronics); and

   -- Thermal (Climate Control & Powertrain Cooling).

During these Chapter 11 cases, Delphi has made substantial
progress in identifying and implementing the sale (or receiving
Bankruptcy Court approval to sell) or wind down of those
facilities and business lines that do not support the company's
future strategic framework, including:

   -- The sale of the brake hose manufacturing business in
      Dayton, Ohio to Harco Manufacturing Group, LLC.

   -- The settlement of a social plan in the "Concurso," or
      Spanish insolvency proceeding, of Delphi Automotive
      Systems Espana S.L.;

   -- The sale of the brake components business, including a
      manufacturing plant in Saltillo, Mexico, to Robert Bosch
      LLC and its affiliate Frenados Mexicanos, S.A. de C.V.;

   -- The sale of substantially all of the assets of
      MobileAria, Inc. to Wireless Matrix USA, Inc.;

   -- The sale of a battery manufacturing facility in New
      Brunswick, New Jersey, to Johnson Controls, Inc.;

   -- The wind-down of a Delphi Medical Texas facility in
      Houston, Texas;

   -- The consolidation of fuel injector production in
      Rochester, New York during 2006-2007, which allowed the
      Debtors to wind down a manufacturing facility in
      Coopersville, Michigan; and

  -- The sale of the catalyst business to Umicore.

The company has also been in discussions regarding the sale of
Delphi's Steering, Bearings and Interior and Closures
businesses.  The company will continue with its stated plans to
sell or wind-down additional non-core product lines and
manufacturing sites through 2008.

                   Salaried Restructuring

On Jan. 1, 2007, Delphi implemented a new organizational
structure surrounding the company's Product Business Units to
increase focus on the product and customer.  As part of its
organizational restructuring, Delphi previously announced that
it expects to reduce its global salaried workforce by as many as
8,500 employees.  In addition, Delphi has commenced the
implemention of an SG&A cost savings plan, which should realize
savings of approximately $450 million per year (in addition to
savings realized from competitive measures planned for its core
businesses and the disposition of non-core assets) and includes
these initiatives:

   -- streamlining of the corporate structure of the
      organization;

   -- streamlining of divisional/product business units' SG&A
      in finance, human resources, and customer interaction
      processes;

   -- transformation of information technologies, the creation
      of information technologies shared services and the
      exploration of other opportunities to reduce costs; and

   -- creation of a finance, human resources, and sales shared
      services organization.

Also, as part of its equity investment agreement, Delphi is
implementing a competitively-benchmarked executive compensation
program for its continuing salaried executives as part of its
plan of reorganization and emergence from Chapter 11.

                       Pension Plans

One of Delphi's principal goals throughout Chapter 11 was to
retain the benefits accrued under the existing defined benefit
U.S. pension plans for both the hourly and salaried workforce.  
To accomplish this, Delphi will freeze the current hourly and
salaried U.S. pension plans as of the first of the month
following the Effective Date of the Plan and replace them with
contemporary plans.

As part of the resolution of its pension issues, Delphi obtained
temporary waivers of its minimum funding requirements from the
IRS and the PBGC, under the hourly plan and the salaried plan.  
By obtaining the waivers, Delphi can delay its minimum funding
requirements from June 15, 2007, through the expected Effective
Date of its Plan of Reorganization.

Delphi will also facilitate the transfer of $1.5 billion of the
company's net hourly pension obligations to GM's Hourly Pension
Plan under applicable federal law.  On the date of such
transfer, GM will receive a note in the principal amount of $1.5
billion that will be paid in full within 10 days of issuance.  
This transfer facilitates Delphi's resolution of its pension
issues and will help allow Delphi to make up required
contributions to the plans that were not made in full during
Chapter 11.

                 Equity Investment Agreement

On July 18, 2007, Delphi accepted a proposal for an Equity
Purchase and Commitment Agreement with affiliates of lead
investor Appaloosa Management L.P.; Harbinger Capital Partners
Master Fund I, Ltd.; Merrill Lynch, Pierce, Fenner & Smith Inc.;
UBS Securities LLC; Goldman Sachs & Co.; and Pardus Capital
Management, L.P. to invest up to $2.55 billion in preferred and
common equity in reorganized Delphi to support the company's
transformation plan and its plan of reorganization.

Under the terms of the Equity Purchase and Commitment Agreement,
the Plan Investors will purchase $800 million of convertible
preferred stock and approximately $175 million of common stock
in the reorganized company.  Additionally, the Plan Investors
will commit to purchasing any unsubscribed shares of common
stock in connection with an approximately
$1.6 billion rights offering that will be made available to
existing common stockholders subject to approval of the
Bankruptcy Court and satisfaction of other terms and conditions.

While the filing of the Plan and related Disclosure Statement
was made by Delphi after consultation with the Plan Investors,
the Plan Investors have not approved the Plan or related
Disclosure Statement and the filing does not waive or modify any
of Delphi's or the Plan Investors' rights and/or obligations
under the Investment Agreement.

                       Exit Financing

In addition to the equity funds to be raised from the Plan
Investors and the proposed Rights Offerings, the company is in
discussions with lenders of syndicated debt and corporate high-
yield debt to raise an amount sufficient to repay the DIP
facilities and conduct its post-reorganization operations.  
Delphi's emergence timetable calls for the company to obtain
exit financing commitments early in the fourth quarter of 2007.

            Emergence Corporate Governance Structure

The company's recently concluded Equity Purchase and Commitment
Agreement with its Plan Investors details certain corporate
governance provisions for the reorganized Delphi.  Under the
terms of the proposed plan, reorganized Delphi would be governed
by a new nine-member Board of Directors including an Executive
Chairman and the company's current CEO.  Subject to certain
conditions, a super-majority of the directors (6 of 9) would be
required to be independent of reorganized Delphi under
applicable exchange rules and independent of the Plan Investors.

A five-member selection committee has been formed to select the
company's post-emergence Executive Chairman, to interview and
approve all directors nominated for the Board, and make the
initial appointment of directors to all Board committees.

GARANT SCHUH: Creditors Approve Insolvency Plan
-----------------------------------------------
Majority of Garant Schuh + Mode AG's creditors have approved the
insolvency program for the company at the creditor's meeting on
Sept. 4, 2007, Financial Times reports citing Frankfurter
Allgemeine Zeitung as its source.

In a report abstracted by FT from Suddeutsche Zeitung, Garant
Schuh's insolvency practitioner Friedrich W. Metzeler
anticipated that creditors will agree to the insolvency plan, as
this will better serve business continuation than liquidation.

According to the report, creditors will forego 61.6% of their
claims.  Under the insolvency plan, creditors are to receive a
cash quota of 14.7% of their claims and an additional quota of
23.7%.  The amount will be raised by share sales, the sale of
the group's own bank and sums targeted from damage claims.

Mr. Metzeler also expected that two strategic investors will
become involved this autumn to benefit from Garant's European
network.

As previously reported in the TCR-Europe on March 21, 2007, the
Debtor's shareholders voted to launch capital measures to get
out of insolvency and avoid liquidation, Borsen Zeitung reports.

The capital measures initially entail cutting the share capital
and then increasing it by issuing new stocks at EUR9.63 per
share, Borsen Zeitung relates.  Current shareholders would see
their holdings diluted to 24%, while new investors could control
up to 76% of voting rights.

Headquartered in Duesseldorf, Germany, Garant Schuh & Mode AG --
http://www.garantschuh.de/-- retails footwear, leather goods
and accessories.  The Garant Schuh & Mode group is a cooperative
of 4,000 stockists in 14 European countries, with a total of
5,800 stores.  The Company has member firms in Germany, France,
the Netherlands, Austria and Belgium.

Garant Schuh filed for commencement of bankruptcy proceedings in
September 2004 after failing to obtain cash from banks to cover
a financing gap.  The District Court of Duesseldorf opened
bankruptcy proceedings against the company in December 2004.

IM STOPPING: Files for Insolvency After Film Investor Default
-------------------------------------------------------------
IM Stopping Power GmbH, a wholly owned subsidiary of
Internationalmedia AG, has shut down the production of Stopping
Power, just before commencing principal photography.

The company cited the default of a significant equity investor,
which subsequently triggered the producer's insolvency.  The
company said the ramifications of the insolvency on other
companies in the Internationalmedia Group are currently under
investigation.

IM Internationalmedia is currently seeking alternative investors
and assumes that the production can be continued shortly.  

Following the release of its half-year interim report on
Aug. 14, 2007, IM Internationalmedia revealed available cash had
reached a critical point.

Meanwhile, Martin Schuermann, chairman of Intermedia Film
Equities USA Inc., the U.S. subsidiary of IM Internationalmedia,
has been immediately suspended from his executive employment
status.  He has resigned as CEO of IM Internationalmedia
July 25, 2007, but stayed responsible for the world-wide
operations.

According to the Variety, Mr. Schuerman allegedly mishandled the
financing for the Jan de Bont-directed action film, which stars
Jason Isaacs, John Cusack and Melissa George.

IMInternational Media is contemplating a legal action against
the executive, Ed Meza writes for the Variety.

Headquartered in Munich, Germany, IM Internationalmedia AG --  
http://www.internationalmedia.de/eng/index.htm--- is the parent  
company of the Internationalmedia group, a global, independent
film company with additional offices in London and Los Angeles.

EASTMAN KODAK: Extends Five-Year Market Deal with Lexar Media
-------------------------------------------------------------
Eastman Kodak Company and Lexar Media Inc. have signed an
extended five-year agreement under which Lexar will develop and
market Kodak-branded flash memory products worldwide.  The
agreement with Lexar, which has performance-based exclusivity,
strengthens the existing relationship between the two companies
and allows for expanded distribution and a broader portfolio of
KODAK-branded flash memory product lines created by Lexar, a
world leader in advanced digital media technologies.  Financial
terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

"Kodak has worked closely with Lexar since 2004 to offer our
customers leading-edge solutions in flash memory," said John
Blake, General Manager, Digital Capture and Imaging Products and
Vice President, Eastman Kodak Company.  "We look forward to
continuing the positive relationship we've established with
Lexar, and to expanding our product line to complement the broad
range of products that the digital camera user experiences on a
daily basis."

The Lexar-Kodak relationship began three years ago with the
launch of a 64 MB Secure Digital card, a time when consumers
were continuing to convert en masse from the use of analog to
flash memory, or "digital film" products.  Since then, the
technology has continued to develop rapidly, and Lexar now
offers flash products that provide up to 4GB of memory in KODAK
Secure Digital High-Capacity cards.  With its acquisition by
Micron Technology, Inc. in 2006, Lexar now also brings access to
the technology and engineering expertise of one of the largest
NAND producers worldwide.

Today, the consumer market for digital photography has evolved
to encompass advanced flash products that not only allow the
capturing of still and video images with cameras and cell
phones, but also serve a growing network of other products and
services, including home printers, on-line services and in-store
kiosks for printing and sharing photos, as well as new devices
such as digital frames that let people display and share their
digital photos and videos.  Kodak currently offers a broad range
of products and services to address the needs of these
categories and other emerging consumer trends.  Under the new
Lexar-Kodak agreement, Lexar will be able to offer a full and
expanding range of KODAK-branded flash memory storage products
in various form factors -- including SD and microSD memory cards
and USB drives to complement many different products and provide
the best solutions for capturing, transferring, and sharing
digital and video images.

Vice President of Lexar Media Mark Adams added, "The combination
of Kodak's brand strength and product breadth with Lexar's
technology and manufacturing expertise is truly a 'win-win'
proposition for customers.  Consumers in search of affordable,
high-quality memory products should look no further than the
KODAK brand, and we intend to aggressively promote that fact."

KODAK-branded cards from Lexar are currently available in
leading retail and e-commerce outlets in the United States and
throughout the world, including Canada, Latin America, Europe
and Australia as well as at http://www.lexar.com/kodak. The
range of KODAK-branded memory cards includes a high performance
line of Secure Digital High Capacity and SD cards, as well as a
standard line of SD and xD-Picture Cards (availability varies by
region).

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Latin America on
May 18, 2007, Fitch Ratings has upgraded Eastman Kodak Company's
senior unsecured debt to 'B/RR4' from 'B-/RR5' due to improved

a portion of the proceeds from the sale of its Health Group to
Onex Healthcare Holdings, Inc., for US$2.35 billion on

GUESS? INC: Earns US$37.5 Million in Second Quarter Ended Aug. 4
----------------------------------------------------------------
Guess?, Inc. has reported record net earnings of US$37.5 million
for the second quarter of its 2008 fiscal, which ended
Aug. 4, 2007.  An increase of 81.5% compared to net earnings of
US$20.6 million for the recast quarter ended July 29, 2006.
Diluted earnings per share increased 81.8% to US$0.40 per share
in the current quarter versus US$0.22 per share in the prior
year quarter.

Paul Marciano, Chief Executive Officer, commented, "We are very
pleased with our record financial results this quarter, which
reflect the continued strength of the Guess brand, the success
of our ongoing investments in long-term initiatives, such as
Europe, Asia, and our accessories lines, and the consistency
with which we are growing our business in North America and
abroad.  We increased our revenues by 48%, as all of our
businesses delivered double digit revenue increases."

Mr. Marciano continued, "Strong performance across all of our
product lines in our retail business in North America led to a
16.2% same store sales increase for the quarter.  This was our
18th consecutive quarter of same store sales growth.  Our
European segment was especially strong, and contributed nearly
half of the Company's revenue growth with a 121% increase in
revenues. Strength in our Asian business, driven mainly by our
South Korean operation, contributed to a 75% revenue increase in
the wholesale segment.  Our licensing business also continued to
perform well above our expectations -- posting revenue growth of
51% in the quarter."

Mr. Marciano concluded, "On a consolidated basis, we increased
net earnings by 82%, with each of our business segments
contributing to this growth.  Our operating margin also improved
to 15.3% from 12.8% last year, even with the investments we made
in our long-term initiatives during the quarter.  This marks
another quarter of record earnings for our company, and the 16th
consecutive quarter of earnings growth."

Total net revenue for the second quarter of fiscal 2008
increased 48.2% to US$388.3 million from US$261.9 million in the
prior-year period.  The company's retail stores in the U.S. and
Canada generated revenue of US$201.6 million in the second
quarter of fiscal 2008, a 21.4% increase from US$166.1 million
in the same period a year ago.  Comparable store sales increased
16.2% for the quarter ended Aug. 4, 2007, compared to the
thirteen weeks ended Aug. 5, 2006.  The company operated 347
retail stores in the U.S. and Canada at the end of the second
quarter of fiscal 2008 versus 322 stores a year earlier.

Net revenue from the Company's wholesale segment, which includes
the company's Asian operations, increased 74.5% to US$57.3
million in the second quarter of fiscal 2008, from US$32.8
million in the prior-year period.

Net revenue from the Company's European segment increased 121.2%
to US$107.9 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2008,
compared to US$48.8 million in the prior-year period.

Licensing segment net revenue increased 51.1% to US$21.5 million
in the second quarter of fiscal 2008, from US$14.3 million in
the prior-year period.

Operating earnings for the second quarter of fiscal 2008
increased 76.4% to US$59.4 million from US$33.6 million in the
prior-year period.  Operating margin in the second quarter
improved 250 basis points to 15.3%, compared to the prior year's
quarter.  This margin expansion was driven by improved leverage
over occupancy costs and the positive impact of higher margin
businesses in the period.

                          Outlook

The company's expectations for the fiscal year ending
Feb. 2, 2008, are:

-- Consolidated net revenues are expected to range from
    US$1.56 billion to US$1.60 billion.

    of US$1.79 to US$1.84.

DANA CORP: Wants Court Approval on Chrysler Settlement Agreement
----------------------------------------------------------------
Chrysler Company LLC, on behalf of itself and Chrysler Motors
LLC and Chrysler Canada Inc., is one of Dana Corp.'s largest
customers, Robert J. Feinstein, Esq., at Pachulski Stang Ziehl
Young Jones & Weintraub, LLP, in New York, relates.  The Debtors
supply approximately US$500,000,000 in Component Parts to
Chrysler annually.

However, the supply of certain Component Parts was not
profitable for the Debtors, thus they undertook negotiations
regarding revised pricing that would enable them to continue to
supply the Parts to Chrysler under improved terms.

Also, prior tofiling for bankruptcy, certain Debtors purchased
axles from Chrysler.  The Debtors and Chrysler signed an
agreement to permit triangular set-offs whereby the parties
agreed that Chrysler may debit the accounts of certain Dana
entities for sums they owe to Chrysler relating to the
prepetition axles.  Dana Corp. questioned whether it had
authority to enter into the Setoff Agreement on behalf of its
subsidiaries and whether the Setoff Agreement was enforceable in
its entirety.  Chrysler placed all accounts owing to certain
Dana entities as of the bankruptcy filing on administrative hold
due to the dispute on the Setoff Agreement.

In September 2006, Chrysler filed claims against each of the
Debtors with each claim seeking recovery of:

  -- US$715,290 for axles shipped from Chrysler to certain
     Debtors before the Petition Date;

  -- US$75,706 for warranty claims as of September 8, 2006; and

  -- unliquidated amounts for postpetition warranty claims.

Chrysler asserts that its Claims are secured claims to the
extent of its set-off and recoupment rights.

Thus, the Debtors and Chrysler engaged in negotiations regarding
a comprehensive, consensual resolution of all customer pricing
issues in connection with certain prepetition purchase orders
and a related prepetition Setoff Agreement.

As a result, the parties entered into a settlement agreement,
which provides that:

  (a) The Debtors modify purchase orders and assume them.  The
      Modified Purchase Orders provide for increased piece
      prices for the Component Parts.  The Debtors will also
      assume existing purchase orders with Chrysler.

  (b) The Debtors and Chrysler will cooperate to support an axle
      co-sourcing initiative targeted to lower component
      acquisition costs.

  (c) The parties will share any Value Analysis/Value
      Engineering program savings for the duration of each of
      the programs in question and will memorialize those
      agreements periodically via appropriate purchase order
      amendments and price reductions.

  (d) The Debtors will assume the Setoff Agreement.  Chrysler
      will be allowed to set off its Claims against any amounts
      it owes to any Debtor.

  (d) Chrysler will withdraw with prejudice its Claims, provided
      that the Debtors will continue to be responsible for all
      warranty claims under the Purchase Orders.

DANA CORP: Wants Court Nod on the Ford Commercial Agreements
------------------------------------------------------------
Dana Corp. and its debtor-affiliates manufacture vehicle frames
Ford Motor Company's F-150 full-size pickup truck.  Ford is the
largest customer of the Debtors and their nondebtor affiliates,
Corinne Ball, Esq., at Jones Day, in New York, relates.  Global
sales of the Debtors' Frames to Ford have produced annual
revenues for the Debtors in hundreds of millions of dollars.

However, before filing for bankruptcy, the manufacture and sale
of Frames became unprofitable as a result of a number of
factors, including rising commodity and energy costs, declining
market share for the Debtors' OEM customers and significant
legacy costs.  Thus, as part of their restructuring efforts, the
Debtors reviewed their customer relationships as a whole and
undertook negotiations with each of their customers regarding
potential changes to commercial terms that would enable them to
manufacture and supply Frames at an economically sustainable
level.

With Ford, these negotiations largely were conducted in late
2006 and resulted in an agreement in principle between the
parties that was reached in December 2006, Ms. Ball says.  The
negotiations ultimately resulted in the execution of a series of
commercial agreements in August 2007.

The Commercial Agreements with Ford, among other things:

  (a) modify the commercial terms of certain existing agreements
      between the parties, including purchase orders;

  (b) establish the terms and conditions upon which the sale of
      Frames from Dana to Ford will be conducted going forward;

  (c) resolve certain issues relating to the future sourcing of
      F-150 Frames;

  (d) resolve related disputes and claims that previously have
      been asserted by Dana against Ford and provide for
      appropriate releases; and

  (e) resolve other commercial issues.

Accordingly, the Debtors ask the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of New York to approve the Ford Commercial
Agreements.

The Debtors have sought and obtained the Court's permission to
file the Commercial Agreements under seal.  Ms. Ball says the
Agreements contain confidential and commercially sensitive
pricing information and other commercial terms that if disclosed
will harm both the Debtors and Ford.

DRESSER-RAND: S&P Rates US$500 Mln Sr. Revolving Facility at BB-
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its bank loan and
recovery ratings to the US$500 million senior secured revolving
credit facility due 2012 of Dresser-Rand Group Inc. (BB-
/Stable/--).  The 'BB+' rating, and '1' recovery rating,
indicate expectation of very high (90%-100%) recovery in the
event of a payment default.
      
On Aug. 30, 2007, Dresser-Rand disclosed that it had amended its
senior secured credit facility and increased it by US$150
million, to US$500 million.  The increased facility will enable
Dresser-Rand to manage working capital issues as the company
executes its growth strategy.
     
The corporate credit rating is 'BB-', reflecting the company's
exposure to the highly cyclical oil and gas production and
processing industries and its short track record as a stand-
alone company, which makes assessing financial performance in a
cyclical downturn difficult.  Partially mitigating these
weaknesses are the company's intermediate leverage and strong
aftermarket component of revenues.

AOEIE IRKUTSKENERGO: Moody's Assigns B1 Corporate Family Rating
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a B1 corporate family rating
to AOEiE Irkutskenergo, a Russian integrated electric utility
business focusing on the Irkutsk region.  The rating outlook is
positive.

At the same time, Moody's Interfax Rating Agency, which is
majority owned by Moody's, assigned a A1.ru national scale
credit rating to the company.

According to Moody's and Moody's Interfax, the B1 global scale
rating reflects the company's global default and loss
expectation, while the A1.ru NSR reflects the standing of the
company's credit quality relative to its domestic peers.

The company's B1 Corporate Family Rating reflects:

   (i) the company's sustainable strong market position in its
       key market of the Irkutsk region;

  (ii) rapidly growing electricity demand in the region and in
       Siberia as a whole, where the company is the largest
       electricity and heat generator;

(iii) the company's good diversification of generation, with
       advantageous concentration on low-cost hydro generation
       accounting for 80% of electricity output, and coal fired
       assets adding to the company's operating flexibility in
       times of lower available water resources;

  (iv) Irkutskenergo's comparatively conservative financial
       profile with a relatively low debt level;

   (v) opportunity to increase revenues and margins in the
       emerging competitive segment of the wholesale electricity
       market, even if somewhat limited due to the influence of
       its largest customers from the aluminum sector which are
       controlled by the company's largest shareholder;

  (vi) the state's 40% stake in the company contributing to a
       compromise on tariff levels to balance those aluminum
       producers' influence.

At the same time, the company's rating is constrained by:

   (i) uncertainties associated with the restructuring process,
       with Irkutskenergo's grid business line, which is now a
       100%-onwed subsidiary, to be isolated as an independent
       entity to be transferred under the state's wing;

  (ii) its exposure to a still developing regulatory environment
       in the Russian power sector, which is under
       restructuring, with a lack of track record, as well as
       additional risks associated with the Russian operating
       environment in general, including developing corporate
       governance practices;

(iii) high geographical, customer industry and specific
       customer concentration, with five large industrial and
       infrastructure customer businesses accounting for 40% of
       the company's revenues, including 30% coming from two
       aluminum producers;

  (iv) possible pressure from UC RusAL, the largest beneficiary
       shareholder, interested in lower tariffs, limiting
       margins and operating cash flow;

   (v) expected increase in debt driven by the company's  
       investment program, with negative free cash flow
       persistent in the medium-term;

  (vi) high coal supplier concentration, with one largest
       supplier accounting for about 60% of the coal supplied;

(vii) still large, though restructured, outstanding receivables
       from largest related party customers, though current
       payments from them, as stated by the company, are
       collected in time.

The company is among those few utility companies that are
independent from RAO UES of Russia, a state-controlled
integrated utility group, which are aiming to align their
restructuring with the power sector's restructuring, but which
still needs to be scheduled and implemented. With no plan, terms
and conditions agreed by the largest beneficiary shareholder and
the state for the grid business's unbundling and a reduction of
the state's stake in the company, it is difficult to properly
assess respective consequences, including a possible negative
impact on the company's financial profile and debt metrics.

The company's own 2007-2010 investment program of RURl18.1
billion is almost equally divided between the generator and
transmission grid business lines, with the generator's part
largely focusing on the company's heat business that will remain
largely regulated.  The program is not aggressive, but a
potential downward pressure on the company's tariffs is expected
to result in negative free cash flow, thus driving up leverage
and putting pressure on the company's liquidity.  

Given its low leverage with Debt to EBITDA at 0.8x and high
coverage levels, with FFO/Interest of 21.9x and RCF/Debt of
101.9%, the company has enough headroom to increase its debt and
at the same time is not that largely exposed to liquidity
problems at the moment. However, an increasing leverage may put
material pressure on liquidity that was relatively weak at the
end of 2006, with the cash and short-term instruments covering
70% of the company's short-term debt.  

Moody's notes that the company has good access to banking
facilities, enjoying established relationship with a number of
large Russian and foreign banks.  The bank funding the company
could apply for as of June 19, 2007, was RURl4.9 billion, with
only RURl1.6 billion drawn.  However, the company as a natural
monopoly is required to choose its potential creditors at a
tender, thus it may take it time to "convert" the limits into
common committed lines.

The rating outlook is positive as Moody's expects the largest
beneficiary shareholder and the state to agree in the upcoming
6-12 months on a restructuring plan for the company's grid
business that should not result in a material deterioration in
the company's business and financial profile, allowing the
company to continue benefiting from its strong market position
and lower costs of electricity production.  At the same time,
Moody's central scenario is that, though interested in lower-
priced electricity, the largest beneficiary will continue to
balance its interests with those of the company's power and heat
business, especially taking into account the company's important
social and economic role in the Irkutsk region as a whole, with
the company to be able to at least maintain its margins and
accommodate increasing debt.

Should the market liberalization and on-going sector
restructuring result in material improvements in the operating
environment for the company and corporate governance include a
transparent mechanism for the company to improve in the medium
term its bargaining power in relationship with its largest
shareholder and related-party customers, this could have a
positive impact on the ratings.  The company's ability to
materially increase margins and cash flow generation ahead of
projections may also positively influence the rating.

A negative shift in the regulatory regime and/or the company's
restructuring affecting the company's credit metrics will likely
prompt Moody's to revisit the outlook and ratings. A negative
pressure on the rating may result from the leverage exceeding
the maximum of total debt to EBITDA ratio of 3x.

Headquartered in the city of Irkutsk, Irkutskenergo is an
integrated electric utility business focusing on the Irkutsk
region.  The company has three hydroelectric power plants with
installed capacity of 9.0 GW and 12 combined heat and power
generators with capacity of 3.9 GW.  The company's regional
transmission grid business currently operates as a 100%-owned
subsidiary.  The company generates 65% of its 2006 Rbl 23.7
billion revenues from sales of electricity and 33% from sales of
heat.  

Irkutskenergo's controlling beneficiary shareholder is UC RusAl,
the largest aluminium business in Russia and an international
leader in the metals sector. The Russian state represented by
the Federal Property Agency has a 40% stake in the company.  In
the course of the company's restructuring, the transmission grid
business should be isolated as a business independent from the
company and transferred to the state and/or state's controlled
entity, Irkutskenergo is expected to be fully privatized.

As advisor, Credit Suisse is expected to draw up measures to
improve the corporate governance of Hynix Semiconductor and
gauge investor opinion on purchasing stakes in the company, KEB
told Yonhap News.

Bloomberg says that creditors of Hynix own about 36 percent of
Hynix Semiconductor after a US$4.6 billion bailout.

The banks, which cut their holding from about 50 percent in June
2006, have agreed not to sell the remaining stake until the end
of this year, Bloomberg adds.

Headquartered in Echon, South Korea, Hynix Semiconductor Inc.
-- http://www.hynix.com/-- is a semiconductor manufacturer.  
Through a merger with LG Semiconductor in 1999, Hynix
Semiconductor now has the world's largest dynamic random access
memory chip production capacity as well as the industry's best
technical development capacity by fully exploiting synergies
resulting from the historical integration of both companies.

The company has operations in Russia, and the United States.

The Troubled Company Reporter-Asia Pacific reported on June 19,
2007, that Moody's Investors Service upgraded to Ba2 from Ba3
Hynix Semiconductor Inc's senior unsecured bond rating and
corporate family rating.

At the same time, Moody's assigned a Ba2 senior unsecured bond
rating for Hynix's proposed US$500 million issuance.  The
outlook for the ratings is stable.

On June 14, 2007, Standard & Poor's assigned its 'BB-' rating on
Hynix Semiconductor Inc.'s proposed US$500 million global bonds
maturing in 2017, which will replace the currently rated seven-
year notes issued in 2005.

The TCR-AP reported on June 14, 2007, that Fitch Ratings
assigned an expected rating of 'BB' to the proposed issue of
US$500 million senior unsecured notes due 2017 by Hynix
Semiconductor Inc.

ROSBANK OJSC: S&P Lifts Ratings to BB- on Improved Profile
----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services raised its long-term
counterparty credit rating on Russian Rosbank OJSC to 'BB-' from
'B+'.  At the same time, the 'B' short-term counterparty credit
and 'ruAA-' Russian national scale ratings were affirmed.  The
outlook remains positive.

"The upgrade reflects Rosbank's improving commercial and
financial profile," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Eugene
Tarzimanov.

Support from minority shareholder French group Societe Generale
(AA/Stable/A-1+), Rosbank's granular loan portfolio, and our
expectation of higher core profitability in the medium term
support the bank's current ratings.

The bank's sizable concentration in funding, challenges in
managing an extensive distribution network, and the high level
of competition pressuring the margins constrain the ratings.

"We expect SocGen's operational and managerial support to
intensify in the medium term, positively affecting Rosbank in
areas such as funding, risk management, and IT," said Mr.
Tarzimanov.

We also expect Rosbank to continue its rapid expansion in line
with strategic goals.

SocGen's commitment to Rosbank is relatively limited at present.
If SocGen acquires a controlling stake in Rosbank, which we view
as probable, further ratings upside is likely.  We would also
consider raising the ratings if the bank demonstrates its
ability to withstand competitive pressure on profitability and
maintains good asset quality.

Ratings downside might follow a significant reduction in
SocGen's support, the bank's inability to control the quality of
its rapidly growing loan portfolio, or its failure to reap
financial benefits from its network.


RUSFINANCE BANK: S&P Hikes Ratings to BB+ on Parent Support
-----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services raised its long-term
counterparty credit rating on Russian Rusfinance Bank to 'BB+'
from 'BB'.  At the same time, the Russia national scale rating
was raised to 'ruAA+' from 'ruAA' and the 'B' short-term
counterparty credit rating was affirmed.  The outlook remains
positive.

Societe Generale (AA/Stable/A-1+) fully owns Rusfinance through
unrated Rusfinance SAS.

"The upgrade reflects the strong support and commitment to
Rusfinance from the parent and the related positive impact from
that ownership," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Eugene
Tarzimanov.

Rusfinance increasingly benefits from parental support in terms
of capital, funding, and risk management.  This now results in a
four-notch uplift to the long-term rating on Rusfinance above
the stand-alone rating (compared with the earlier three-notch
uplift).

The ratings remain constrained by the risks of operating in the
fast-growing, increasingly competitive, and inherently high-risk
Russian consumer finance market, which has not yet been tested
by an economic downturn.

The bank's limited loan concentration, good capitalization, and
leading position in car loans partially offset Rusfinance's
negative rating factors.

"We expect Rusfinance to develop a successful consumer finance
franchise in Russia and maintain strong ties with SocGen," said
Mr. Tarzimanov.

In the medium term, the ratings will largely be driven by
developments in the bank's stand-alone profile, as we already
incorporate parental support from SocGen into the ratings.

Rusfinance's proven ability to manage its rapid expansion while
keeping asset quality under control could lead to an upgrade.  
Additionally, the bank has the potential for improved
creditworthiness if it further strengthens profitability,
capital, and funding.

A downgrade could occur if the bank's stand-alone financial
profile materially deteriorated, and/or if ties to SocGen
weakened significantly.


TITAN PETROCHEMICALS: Second-Half Profit Doubles on Ship Sales
--------------------------------------------------------------
Titan Petrochemicals Group Ltd's first-half profit more than
doubled because of gains from selling some vessels, Shanghai
Daily reports, citing the company's statement with the Hong Kong
Stock Exchange.  

According to the company's disclosure, net income climbed to
HK$152 million (US$19.5 million), or HK$3.10 cents a share, from
a restated HK$65 million, HK$1.35 cents, a year earlier.  Sales
rose 19% to HK$7.7 billion.

Chief Executive Barry Cheung plans to make Titan into China's
biggest independent fuels storage provider and cut dependence on
shipping oil, the statement said, as quoted by the Daily.  
Profit contribution from tankers dropped to 75% last year from
90% in 2005, the stamen further revealed.  

Because of this, vessels, including very large crude carriers,
or VLCCs, will account for no more than a fifth of earnings
within three years, Mr. Cheung said.

"The first half of 2007 saw Titan achieve good progress towards
its stated goal of creating an integrated oil logistics
company," the company said.  "We began to reduce our dependence
on the volatile VLCC market."

Titan Petrochemicals Group Ltd -- http://www.petrotitan.com/--  
is an Asian integrated oil logistics, distribution and supply
services provider.  It was listed on the Hong Kong Stock
Exchange in 2002.  Headquartered in Hong Kong, its operations
are spread over Singapore, Malaysia and China. It also operates
in Russia and Panama.  It manages 25 tankers and has on-shore
storage facilities in Guangdong, Fujian and Shanghai.  On
March 29, 2007, Moody's Investors Service affirmed the B1
corporate family rating of Titan Petrochemicals Group Ltd and
its senior unsecured bond rating of B2.  This follows Titan's
announcement of its fiscal year 2006 results, which show a 9.5%
increase in sales but a marked decline in net income by 67%.

Moody's Investors Service has downgraded the corporate family
rating of Titan Petrochemical Group Ltd from B1 to B2.  At the
same time, Titan's unsecured bond rating is also lowered to B3.  
The outlook for both ratings is stable.

Standard & Poor's Ratings Services on Sept. 4, 2007, revised the
outlook on the rating on Titan Petrochemicals Group Ltd. to
negative from stable.  At the same time, it affirmed both the
'B+' long-term corporate credit rating on Titan and the 'B'
issue rating on the company's US$400 million guaranteed senior
unsecured notes due 2012.

ALLIANCE BOOTS: Extreme Leverage Cues S&P’s Watch on BB- Ratings
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services’ 'BB-' long-term corporate
credit rating on U.K.-based health-and-beauty retailer and
wholesaler Alliance Boots PLC remains on CreditWatch with
negative implications where it had originally been placed on
March 12, 2007.

The CreditWatch placement followed the take-over bid by Kohlberg
Kravis Roberts & Co., a private-equity firm, and Stefano
Pessina, the executive deputy chairman of Alliance Boots.

"Although no information on Alliance Boot's new financial
profile has been made public so far, we expect the group to be
extremely leveraged given the magnitude of the senior facilities
package raised to finance the acquisition," said Standard &
Poor's credit analyst Nicolas Baudouin.

We estimate that the adjusted debt-to-EBITDA ratio could be
close to 10x, which is highly aggressive.  Consequently, the
current ratings could be lowered by several notches once the
CreditWatch is resolved.  The ratings could also be affirmed,
but this is the least likely scenario as it would necessitate
substantial deleveraging in the near term.

"The ratings continue to reflect Alliance Boot's satisfactory
business profile, but will be driven primarily by the group's
extremely aggressive financial profile," added Mr. Baudouin.   

S&P expects to resolve the CreditWatch status within the next 30
days, once we have met with Alliance Boots.


BASIS YIELD: Files Chapter 15 Petition in S.D. New York
-------------------------------------------------------
Basis Yield Alpha Fund (Master) filed a petition before the
Grand Court of the Cayman Islands on Aug. 28, 2007, for
authority to wind up operations under the provisions of the
Companies Law of the Cayman Islands.

In a petition filed with the Cayman Grand Court, Walkers,
Attorneys-at-Law, counsel to Basis Yield, held that the Fund is
unable to pay its debts as they fall due.  "[I]t is just and
equitable that BYAF(Master) should be wound up," the petition
said.

Walkers further disclosed that Basis Yield has share capital of:

  * US$10,000 divided into 1,000,000 Class A Shares of a nominal
    or par value of US$0.01 each;

  * AU$10,000 divided into 1,000,000 Class A Shares of a nominal
    or par value of AU$O.01 each;

  * NZ$10,000 divided into 1,000,000 Class A Shares of a nominal
    or par value of NZDO.01 each;

  * EUR10,000 divided into 1,000,000 Class A Shares of a nominal
    or par value of EURO.01 each;

  * JPY1,000,000 divided into 1,000,000 Class A Shares of a
    nominal or par value of JPY1.00 each;

  * US$220,000 divided into 22,000,000 Class B Shares of a
    nominal or par value of US$0.01 each;

  * US$50,000 divided into 5,000,000 Class C Shares of a nominal
    or par value of US$0.01 each;

  * AU$220,000 divided into 22,000,000 Yield Fund Shares of a
    nominal or par value of AU$0.01 each;

  * US$166,666 divided into 16,666,600 Class A US Shares of a
    nominal or par value of US$0.01 each;

  * US$166,666 divided into 16,666,600 Class B US Shares of a
    nominal or par value of US$0.01 each; and

  * US$166,667 divided into 16,666,700 Class C US Shares of a
    nominal or par value of US$0.01 each.

Basis Yield also sought the appointment of Hugh Dickson, Stephen
John Akers, and Paul Andrew Billingham, partners at Grant
Thornton, as its joint provisional liquidators.

On the same day, the Honourable Madam Justice Levers entered an
order appointing Messrs. Dickson, Akers, and Billingham as joint
provisional liquidators.

                    Chapter 15 Ancillary Case

On August 29, 2007, the Liquidators filed a petition before the
U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York
seeking recognition of Basis Yield's liquidation in the Cayman
Islands as a "foreign main" proceeding under Chapter 15 of the
U.S. Bankruptcy Code.  The Liquidators also asked the U.S. Court
to enjoin and restrain U.S. creditors from commencing actions
with respect to the Fund's assets in the United States.

Basis Yield is estimated to have more than $100,000,000 in total
assets and total liabilities, and less than 49 creditors, the
Chapter 15 petition said.

The Liquidators noted that in excess of $50,000,000 of Basis
Yield's assets, held by various financial institutions, are
located within the United States.

Basis Capital has said losses in Basis Yield could exceed 80%,
Tiffany Kary and Jenny Strasburg at Bloomberg report.

                     Just Like Bear Stearns

Kurt Mayr, Esq., at Bracewell & Giuliani, in Hartford,
Connecticut, said Basis Yield is likely to encounter issues as
to whether the Cayman Islands liquidation is a "foreign main"
proceeding, Mses. Kary and Strasburg relate.  "There will be
issues as to whether [Basis Yield's case is] a foreign main
proceeding, just as there are with the Bear Stearns case," Mr.
Mayr said.

Mr. Mayr noted that Basis Yield's creditors and assets "appear
to be mostly U.S.-based," Bloomberg says.

Two Bear Stearns Cos. investment funds -- Bear Stearns High-
Grade Structured Credit Strategies Master Fund, and Bear Stearns
High-Grade Structured Credit Strategies Enhanced Leverage Master
Fund, Ltd. -- commenced liquidation proceedings in the Cayman
Islands and parallel chapter 15 proceedings before the Southern
District of New York Bankruptcy Court in July 2007.

Judge Burton Lifland, who handles the Bear Stearns Funds' cases,
on Thursday, denied the Bear Stearns Funds protection under
Chapter 15 of the Bankruptcy Code.  Judge Lifland held that the
Bear Stearns Funds' pleadings clearly establish that the Funds'
"center of main interest" is in the United States and not in the
Cayman Islands.

Judge Lifland held that denial of the Foreign Representatives'
request is without prejudice to the filing of a Chapter 11 or a
Chapter 7 case.   

                       Road to Bankruptcy

Following the volatility in the market related to the United
States sub-prime lending defaults, by June 2007, Basis Yield
began to suffer a significant devaluation of its asset
portfolio.  

The devaluation of the Fund's secured assets led to margin calls
from trade counterparties, which Basis Yield was ultimately
unable to meet.  This, in turn, resulted in the issuance of
several default notices by the counterparties and the exercise
of their rights under their agreements to close out trades and
to seize or sell Basis Yield assets that had been the subject of
repurchase agreements or over which they held security
interests.

Default notices were issued by, inter alia, J.P. Morgan Chase
Bank N.A., Goldman Sachs International, Citigroup Global Markets
Limited, Morgan Stanley, Lehman Brothers International (Europe),
and Merrill Lynch International.

In addition, two counterparties issued bid lists for Basis
Yield's assets, which resulted in additional downward pressure
on
the relevant asset classes and a further devaluation of the
Fund's assets.

Basis Yield disputed many of the default notices issued or
purportedly issued by various parties.

Basis Capital stopped redemptions from its Yield Alpha Fund and
Aust-Rim Opportunity Fund in July 2007 after both funds lost 9%
and 14% in June, Bloomberg says.

Basis Capital retained The Blackstone Group to act as financial
advisor to the Yield Alpha Fund and Pac-Rim Opportunity Funds.  
Blackstone's role included negotiating with investment banks to
prevent adverse pricing and selling of both funds' assets.

For the past five years, the Yield Alpha Fund returned 15.5% on
average while the Aust-Rim Opportunity Fund provided almost 15%
return on average, according to Bloomberg, citing a July 2007
report by Zenith Investment Partners posted on Basis Capital's
Web site.

Bloomberg notes that the Basis Capital funds had the highest
five-star ratings from Standard & Poor's before the ranking was
put "on hold" on July 17, 2007, because of "issues potentially
affecting the management of the fund," according to S&P.

                        About Basis

Basis Yield Alpha Fund (Master) is a Cayman Islands-based mutual
fund managed by Basis Capital Fund Management Ltd. in Australia.

Basis Yield was incorporated on September 14, 2005, and has its
registered office at Fortis Prime Fund Solutions (Cayman), in
the Cayman Islands.  Basis Yield is Basis Capital's second-
biggest hedge fund, according to Bloomberg News.

Basis Yield is the master fund in a master-feeder structure.  
The structure operates by allowing investors' funds to be
channeled through two companies operating in a single
jurisdiction to a "master" company operating in the same
jurisdiction.  The two feeder funds, which are both domiciled in
the Cayman Islands, are:

  (i) Basis Yield Alpha Fund (US), a U.S. feeder fund for U.S.
      taxable investors; and

(ii) Basis Yield Alpha Fund, a non-U.S. feeder for all other
      investors.

BYAF(US) is not actively investing presently and, accordingly,
does not hold any shares in Basis Yield.

Fortis serves as administrator to Basis Yield and each of its
feeder funds.

Both feeder funds are registered mutual funds regulated by the
Cayman Island Monetary Authority.

Basis Yield sought to achieve its investment options principally
by investing the assets of the master fund in a diversified
portfolio of relatively high-yielding opportunities in
international markets.  The investments included investments in
high-yielding corporate securities and structured credit
securities, including, but not limited to, asset-backed
securities, mortgage backed securities, collateralized debt
obligations, collateralized loan obligations, as well as other
asset classes.

                          Basis Capital

Basis Capital was launched in April 1999 by Steve Howell, a
former director of Asia-Pacific trading at American Express Bank
in Singapore, and Stuart Fowler, a former trader at Salomon
Smith Barney, according to Bloomberg.  Both worked together at
County NatWest.

Basis Capital reported more than $1,000,000,000 in assets in May
2007, Bloomberg relates.

Basis Capital's two key business streams are:

  -- Funds Management

     Basis Capital manages a number of Multi Strategy, Relative
     value and Arbitrage Funds and caters for Australian
     domestic and international investors.  Basis Capital's
     Funds Management arm provide institutions and sophisticated
     and accredited investors access to a unique Asia Pacific
     Relative Value and Arbitrage strategy, targeting superior
     risk-adjusted returns, irrespective of the performance of
     the key bond and equity markets.  The firm added a Global
     Structured Credit Fund in 2003.

  -- Securitization

     Basis Capital established its securitization arm to advise
     and assist sponsor companies to access the capital markets.
     Basis Capital structured, arranged or advised on various
     Alternative Asset Pools which includes 100% Loan-to-
     Valuation residential mortgages; auto loans; personal
     loans; rural and commercial mortgages and trade
     receivables.  The firm's expertise has evolved into a
     Collateral Management function whereby US$850,000,000 of
     asset-backed securities are being managed for two CDO
     vehicles.

Basis Capital is fully licensed and regulated by the Australian
Securities and Investment Commission as a Responsible Entity.

Basis Capital is a founding member of the Australian Chapter
of the Alternative Investment Management Association.

Bloomberg relates Basis Capital was declared "Fund of the Year"
at the 2005 AsiaHedge awards.  It was also named "Skilled
Manager of the Year" by Macquarie Bank Ltd. in 2004.

BASIS YIELD: Obtains Automatic Stay from Cayman Islands Court
-------------------------------------------------------------
The Honorable Madam Justice Levers of the Grand Court of Cayman
Islands issued an order dated August 28, 2007, imposing a stay
on all actions, suits or proceedings against Basis Yield Alpha
Fund (Master).

Pursuant to Section 99 of the Companies Law, the Cayman Grand
Court held that all actions, lawsuits or proceedings of any
nature against Basis Yield are restrained until further order of
the Cayman Grand Court, and no future action, lawsuit or
proceeding will be commenced against Basis Yield without the
leave of the Cayman Grand Court.

Madam Justice Levers also appointed Hugh Dickson, Stephen John
Akers, and Paul Andrew Billingham, partners at Grant Thornton,
as Basis Yield's joint provisional liquidators and foreign
representatives of the Funds.

Madam Justice Levers granted to the Joint Liquidators the
powers:

  (a) to locate, protect, secure and take into their possession
      and control all asserts and property to which the Fund is
      to be entitled;

  (b) to locate, protect, secure and take into their possession
      and control the books, papers and records of the Fund
      including the accounting and statutory records;

  (c) to carry out investigations as they may consider
      appropriate into the promotion, formation, business,
      dealings, affairs or property of the Fund, including
      without limitation applying for relief under Section 127
      of the Companies Law of the Cayman Islands or an
      equivalent in any other jurisdiction;

  (d) to do any acts or things considered by them to be
      necessary or desirable for the protection of the assets
      and property of the Fund including but not limited to
      causing the Fund to vote as a shareholder in other
      companies, as the Liquidators deem appropriate;

  (e) to take any action as may be necessary to obtain the
      recognition of the appointment of the Liquidators in any
      other relevant jurisdiction and to make applications to
      the courts of those jurisdictions for that purpose,
      including without limitation, the filing of a petition
      under Chapter 15 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code and the
      Liquidators are designated as the foreign representatives
      of the Fund for that purpose;

  (f) to retain barristers, solicitors or attorneys and other
      agents or professionals, whether in Cayman Islands or
      elsewhere, as the Liquidators consider appropriate for
      advising or assisting in the execution of their powers;

  (g) subject to the provisions of Section 107(2) of the
      Companies Law, to render and pay invoices out of the
      Fund's assets for their own remuneration at their usual
      and customary rates, together with all costs, charges
      and expenses of their attorneys and all other agents,
      managers, accountants or other persons that the
      Liquidators may employ; and

  (h) to exercise these powers without further sanction of the
      Cayman Islands Grand Court.

Madam Justice Levers ruled that no disposition of the Fund's
property will be avoided pursuant to Section 156 of the Cayman
Islands Companies Law.

Sandra Corbett, Esq., a partner at Walkers, in the Cayman
Islands, which serves as counsel to Basis Yield, relates that
provisional liquidators are officers of the Cayman Grand Court.  
They are required to be independent of the management of the
company and its creditors, and are required to act in an even-
handed fashion when dealing with creditors.

Headquartered in Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands, Basis Yield Alpha
Fund (Master) operates as a master-feeder structure that allows
investors' funds to be channeled through two companies operating
in a single jurisdiction to a "master" company operating  in the
same jurisdiction.  These two feeder funds are Basis Yield Alpha
Fund (US), a US feeder fund  for US taxable investors, and  
Basis Yield Alpha Fund, a non-US feeder for all other investors.

The company filed a wind-up petition before the Grand Court of
the Cayman Islands on Aug. 28, 2007.  Subsequently, Hugh
Dickson, Stephen John Akers, and Paul Andrew Billingham, in
their capacities as the Debtor's joint provisional liquidators,
filed a chapter 15 protection in the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the Southern District of New York on Aug. 29, 2007 (Bankr.
S.D.N.Y. Case No. 07-12762).  They estimated the Debtor's assets
and debts at more than US$100 million as of the petition date.  
Karen Dine, Esq., of Pillsbury Winthrop Shaw Pittman LLP,
represents the petitioners in the petition.

CHOICESUK PLC: Sells Local & Direct Businesses to Findel Plc
------------------------------------------------------------
The joint administrators of ChoicesUK Plc have completed the
sale of the local and direct businesses of ChoicesUK to Findel
Plc, which has made the acquisition on behalf of its associate
company, Webb Group Ltd.

Nick Cropper, Colin Haig, Mike Jervis and Stephen Oldfield of
PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP said that the new business will focus
on driving forward ChoicesUK's wholesale packaged entertainment
business and its online and mail order business.  All employees
who work in local and direct have transferred to the new
business with the sale.

The administrators continue to operate 139 stores across the
U.K. and are actively seeking a purchaser for the business.

ChoicesUK, whose head office is in Peterborough, is an AIM
listed multi-channel distributor and retailer of DVDs, computer
games and CDs.

"Following an intensive sales process, I am pleased to announce
the sale of the local and direct businesses to Findel plc on
behalf of its associate, Webb Group Ltd.  The sale provides a
secure home for the local and direct businesses, allied with
strong management experience and capability.  I would like to
take this opportunity to thank the employees, suppliers and
customers of ChoicesUK for their support and cooperation
throughout this difficult time," Nick Cropper, disclosed.

"Our next task is to sell the retail business of ChoicesUK.  e

now is to work hard to achieve a sale of the business as soon as
is possible," Mr. Cropper added.

"The acquisition of these businesses is directly in line with
our strategy of further leveraging our core skills in brand
management, product sourcing and fulfillment through targeted
acquisitions.  The local and direct businesses of ChoicesUK have
strong prospects and are an excellent fit with our existing
businesses.  This transaction will take our run rate revenues
over EUR100 million," Bernard Kumeta, managing director of Webb
Group Ltd. said.

ChoicesUK called in administrators on Aug. 22, 2007, after it
issued a profit warning in April 2007, saying that it expected
its financial performance for the 24-weeks to July 28, 2007, to
be substantially below market expectations, with the company
incurring losses despite cost-cutting measures.

CORUS GROUP: S&P Withdraws Ratings on Takeover Completion
---------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services had withdrawn its 'BB-' long-
term and 'B' short-term corporate credit ratings on U.K.-based
steel manufacturer Corus Group PLC at the company's request.

At the same time, the 'B+' senior unsecured debt ratings on
Corus Group's EUR800 million 7.5% bonds due 2011 and Corus
Finance PLC's GBP200 million 6.75% guaranteed bonds due 2008,
were also withdrawn.  The notes were redeemed early and in full
on Aug. 31, 2007.

"The rating withdrawal was expected and follows the completion
of the takeover of Corus Group by Tata Steel," said Standard &
Poor's credit analyst Alex Herbert.

Tata Steel Ltd. (BB/Positive/--) is India's second-largest
integrated steel producer.

Furthermore, there is no impact on the 'BB-' long-term and 'B'
short-term corporate credit ratings on U.K.-based steel producer
Tata Steel U.K. Ltd. (TSUK), which were assigned on July 10,
2007.  TSUK is the new intermediate parent holding company of
Corus Group and a wholly owned subsidiary of Tata Steel Ltd.  
The outlook is positive.

FEDERAL-MOGUL: 40 Plan Objections Filed as of August 21
-------------------------------------------------------
The U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the District 0f Delaware had set
Aug. 21, 2007, as the deadline for Plan Objectors to file briefs
on issues relating to confirmation of Federal-Mogul Corporation
and its debtor-affiliates' Fourth Amended Joint Plan of
Reorganization.

As of Aug. 21, more than 40 Plan Objectors filed briefs opposing
the Fourth Amended Plan:

In addition, Rothschild Inc. objects to the Fourth Amended
Plan's
supplemental injunction and exculpation provision to the extent
that they could be interpreted as:

  (1) restricting Rothschild's rights to assert claims,
      counterclaims, affirmative defenses or other causes of
      action against the released parties in the event that any
      of them asserts a claim of any kind against Rothschild;

  (2) eliminating, reducing or otherwise affecting the Debtors'
      continuing obligations to indemnify and exculpate
      Rothschild in accordance with the parties' engagement
      letter;

  (3) modifying the legal standard that would apply in the event
      that any claims are asserted against Rothschild; or

  (4) limiting Rothschild's right to receive compensation earned
      and reimbursement of expenses incurred as administrative
      expenses under the Plan.

From the Debtors' bankruptcy filing to Nov. 30, 2003, Rothschild
provided the Debtors with financial advisory and investment
banking services.

Bradford J. Sandler, Esq., at Benesch, Friedlander, Coplan &
Aronoff LLP, in Wilmington, Delaware, clarifies that Rothschild
is not seeking to jeopardize Plan confirmation, or to delay the
Debtors' emergence from Chapter 11.  Rather, Rothschild seeks to
clarify that its rights will not improperly be limited by the
Supplemental Injunction or the Exculpation Provision, Mr.
Sandler
clarifies.

Furthermore, Owens-Illinois, Inc., an alleged joint tortfeasor
and co-defendant in certain state court litigation with the
Debtors, maintains that the TDP was not proposed in good faith
in accordance with Section 1129(a)(3) of the Bankruptcy Code.

Katharine L. Mayer, Esq., at McCarter & English, LLP, in
Wilmington, Delaware, contends that the Asbestos Personal Injury
Trust enhances the rights available to asbestos plaintiffs at
the expense of the co-defendants.  She argues that the Trustees,
comprised of asbestos personal injury plaintiff lawyers, cannot
properly fulfill their obligations to all beneficiaries of the
Trust if:

  (1) those beneficiaries have interests directly adverse to
      each other; and

  (2) the Trustees themselves are biased because one of those
      adverse groups represents their own clients.

The Plan Proponents' allegation that indirect claimants voted in
favor of the Plan is misleading, Ms. Mayer argues.  "The Plan
Proponents unilaterally put indirect claimants in the same class
as the hundreds of thousands of claims submitted by the asbestos
plaintiff lawyers and then negotiated a deal for those lawyers
to support the Plan.  The acceptance by that class in no way
negates the validity of Owens-Illinois' objection."

Owens-Illinois asks the Court to deny confirmation of the Plan
with the TDP as written.

The Estate of Thurston Little, the Estate of Billy R. Scruggs,
and the plaintiffs in the civil action styled Doris Everitt, et
al. v. Pneumo Abex, LLC, pending in the U.S. District Court for
the Southern District of Mississippi, Jackson Division, join in
the Plan Objectors' contention that Plan A fails to comply with
Section 524(g).  The Plan's Channeling Injunction and other
structural deficiencies would impermissibly violate the asbestos
claimants' constitutional and equitable rights, the Pneumo Abex
Claimants assert.

                    Plan Proponents Respond

The Debtors, the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors, the
Official Committee of Asbestos Claimants, the Official Committee
of Equity Security Holders, the Legal Representative for Future
Asbestos Claimants, JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., Cooper
Industries, LLC, and Pneumo Abex LLC, argue that for the most
part, the Plan Objectors are not creditors of, and have no legal
interest in, the Debtors' estates.

The Plan Objectors' arguments that the Plan and the Trust
Distribution Procedures violate the cooperation and voluntary
payment provisions of their policies and that the Plan
discharges the Debtors' obligations for those violations are a
gross mischaracterization of the Plan, the Plan Proponents
assert.

The Plan Objectors have not demonstrated the constitutionally
required injury in fact and the direct adverse impact on their
interests required of a putative party in interest under Section
1109 of the Bankruptcy Code, James E. O'Neill, Esq., at
Pachulski, Stang, Ziehl, Young, Jones  & Weintraub LLP, in
Wilmington, Delaware, contends, on the Debtors' behalf.  "Nor
can they do so, given the sweeping insurance neutrality language
of the Plan, which expressly provides that it does not adversely
affect the insurers' rights under their contracts in any way,
save for the Insurance Rights Assignment under Plan B."

The Objecting Insurers' contention that their pecuniary
interests are affected by the Plan is faulty, Mr. O'Neill
continues.  The proceeds of the Debtors' asbestos insurance
policies, he points out, are property of the Debtors, not the
Insurers.   The Plan does not obligate the Insurers to pay
amounts exceeding their pre-existing policy limits.

Moreover, the Objecting Insurers are not within the class of
persons protected by Section 524(g) and cannot assert the rights
of the asbestos claimants whose interests that provision seeks
to protect.  Thus, they have no standing to assert objections
based on alleged non-compliance with Section 524(g).

The Plan Proponents maintain that Plan A satisfies Section
524(g) and all of the other statutory requirements of the
Bankruptcy Code.  Mr. O'Neill notes that Plan A has the
"overwhelming" approval of the asbestos personal injury
claimants and all of the Debtors' other creditors -- the real
stakeholders in the Debtors' reorganization.

The prospect of Plan A's increased "complexity" in itself, Mr.
O'Neill asserts, does not provide any substantive basis for
denying Plan A.

Accordingly, the Plan Proponents ask the Court to confirm the
Fourth Amended Plan, including Plan A.

                            *   *   *

Judge Fitzgerald denied the Plan Proponents' request to strike
the testimony of Mark A. Behrens, one of the Objecting Insurers'
witnesses.

Judge Fitzgerald will hear closing arguments on Oct. 1, 2007.

FORD MOTOR: Offers Up to US$1,000 Bonus in “Swap Your Ride” Deal
----------------------------------------------------------------
As Ford Motor Company continues to earn recognition from third-
party experts for design, safety, quality and innovation, the
company is inviting consumers to “swap their ride” and get
behind the wheel of one of its award-winning Blue Oval products.

Ford has lauched “Swap Your Ride,” an integrated marketing
campaign that chronicles the experiences of competitive-make
vehicle owners from New York, Dallas, Miami and Los Angeles as
they evaluate Ford cars, trucks, SUVs and CUVs.  The ads, which
take their inspiration from the reality TV phenomenon, feature
candid feedback from people who thought they were test-driving
vehicles for market research.

The campaign is backed by an offer of up to US$1,000 “Swap Bonus
Cash” through Oct. 1, 2007 on most 2007 and 2008 model year
vehicles in addition to all existing retail and lease offers.

“When consumers experience a new Ford vehicle for themselves --
especially when they haven’t driven one of our products lately
-- it’s almost always an eye-opening experience,” said Barry
Engle, general manager, Ford Marketing.  “In ‘Swap Your Ride,’
real people tell this story in their own words.”

“Swap Your Ride” participants were asked before and after their
test-drive experience whether they would be open to purchasing
or leasing a Ford vehicle in the future.  The results: purchase
consideration following consumers’ week-long product evaluation
doubled to nearly 80 percent.

                 Integrated Advertising Campaign

The “Swap Your Ride” television commercials, 28 in all, have
spots scheduled on the major broadcast and cable networks during
such highly rated shows as Desperate Housewives, CSI, Extreme
Home Makeover and Bones.  The campaign also includes Spanish-
language ads.

Print executions will appear nationally in USA Today and in
major newspapers in 25 top markets beginning on Sept. 7, 2007.  
Radio spots will air nationally, regionally and locally
beginning this week.  Digital advertising for “Swap Your Ride”
also will appear on a variety of sites including Google, Yahoo!,
MSN and other automotive research sites.  In addition,
fordchallenge.com will feature additional behind-the-scenes
footage compiled during the clinics.

                         Program Details

Ford’s “Swap Your Ride” campaign includes retail and lease
offers which run nationwide through Oct. 1, 2007:

    -- Up to US$1,000 “Swap Bonus Cash” on most 2007 and 2008
       model year Ford vehicles in addition to all existing
       retail and lease offers.

    -- The “Swap Bonus Cash” offer for most eligible vehicles is
       US$1,000; the 2008 Ford Fusion and Mustang are eligible
       for US$500 “Swap Bonus Cash”.

    -- 2007 F-150 models will offer US$1,000 “Swap Bonus Cash”
       plus zero percent financing for 60 months.

    -- 2007 Explorer, SportTrac and Ranger will offer stand-
       alone zero percent financing for 60 months (or 1.9
       percent financing plus US$1,000 “Swap Bonus Cash”).

    -- Certain 2007 and 2008 models, including Shelby and
       Harley-Davidson models, are not eligible for “Swap Bonus
       Cash”.

As reported in the TCR-Europe on July 31, 2007, Moody's
Investors Service said that the performance of Ford Motor
Company's global automotive operations for the second quarter of
2007 was significantly stronger than the previous year and
better than street expectations.

However, Moody's explained that the company continues to face
significant competitive and financial challenges, and the rating
agency expects that Ford's credit metrics and rate of cash
consumption will likely remain consistent with no higher than a
B3 corporate family rating level into 2008.

According to the rating agency, Ford's corporate family rating
is currently a B3 with a negative outlook.  The rating is
pressured by the shift in consumer preference from high margin
trucks and SUVs, and by the need for a new 2007 UAW contract
that provides meaningful relief from high health care costs and
burdensome work rules, Moody's relates.

GENERAL MOTORS: Inks Settlement Agreement with Delphi Corp.
-----------------------------------------------------------
General Motors Corp. signed definitive settlement and
restructuring agreements with Delphi Corp.  Delphi Corp. also  
its proposed Joint Plan of Reorganization and related Disclosure
Statement with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of New York.

Delphi's comprehensive settlement with GM resolves all
outstanding issues between Delphi and GM including: litigation
commenced in March 2006, by Delphi, to terminate certain supply
agreements with GM; all potential claims and disputes with GM
arising out of the separation of Delphi from GM in 1999; certain
post-separation claims and disputes between Delphi and GM; the
proofs of claim filed by GM against Delphi in Delphi's Chapter
11 cases; GM's treatment under Delphi's proposed plan of
reorganization; and various other legacy and ordinary course
business matters between the companies.

The proposed Plan and related Disclosure Statement includes
detailed information regarding the treatment of claims and
interests, the company's five-year business plan, events leading
up to and during Delphi's Chapter 11 cases, and an outline of
the plan investor agreement and rights offering.  Delphi's
emergence timetable calls for the company to obtain exit
financing commitments early in the fourth quarter of 2007.

The proposed plan also outlines Delphi's transformation
centering around five core areas:

   -- Agreements reached with all principal U.S. labor unions
      which create a competitive arena in which to conduct its
      business;

   -- Agreements with General Motors outlining its financial
      support for certain legacy and labor costs and certain
      future business commitments to Delphi;

   -- Delphi's future product portfolio and manufacturing
      footprint;

   -- Delphi's planned transformation of its salaried workforce
      and progress in reducing SG&A to support its realigned
      portfolio; and

   -- Delphi's plans to fund its U.S. defined benefit programs.

"The filing of Delphi's Plan of Reorganization and Disclosure
Statement is a significant milestone for our company," Rodney
O'Neal, Delphi CEO and president, said.  "Each of the numerous
moving pieces to our transformation are coming together.  In
recent months, we have announced a new equity investment
agreement with our Plan Investors and agreed on consensual
distributions with our Statutory Committees for both our
creditors and equity holders.  Additionally, we completed our
labor transformation with our six U.S. unions, settled complex
multi-district ERISA and securities litigation, and finalized
comprehensive settlement and restructuring agreements with GM.  
While achieving these transformation objectives, we also
continued to support our customers and deliver operational
excellence every step of the way.  Delphi has made great
progress toward its stated transformation goals and is intensely
focused on completing the remaining items in order to
successfully emerge from Chapter 11 as a more competitive
technology leader."

              Plan of Reorganization Framework

Delphi's plan of reorganization is based upon a series of global
settlements and compromises that involve every major group of
constituents in Delphi's reorganization cases, including:
Delphi, its principal U.S. labor unions, GM, the statutory
creditors' and equity holders' committees appointed in Delphi's
Chapter 11 cases and the lead plaintiffs in certain securities
and ERISA multidistrict litigation.

The Plan provides for a recovery through a plan distribution of
reorganized Delphi common stock and cash amounting to the
principal amount of the claim plus accrued interest at a
negotiated plan value for general unsecured creditors, and
agreed upon distributions to other classes of creditors and
interests.  GM will receive a $2.7 billion cash distribution in
satisfaction of certain of its claims against Delphi.  As part
of the settlement of the multidistrict ERISA and securities
litigation, distributions will be made under three plan classes
using plan currency in the same form, ratio, and treatment as
what will be used to satisfy the holders of general unsecured
claims.  Allowed claims and interests for these three plan
classes total $24.5 million for the ERISA plan class and a total
of $204 million for the debt securities class and the common
stock securities class.  Holders of existing Delphi common stock
will receive a distribution of shares of reorganized Delphi,
five-year warrants exercisable to purchase shares of reorganized
Delphi, and transferable and non-transferable subscription
rights to purchase shares of reorganized Delphi.

The settlements embodied by the Plan feature rights offerings
that will be conducted after confirmation of the Plan and which
will allow Delphi's common stockholders, who are holders of
shares of Delphi common stock as of the date when the
Confirmation Hearing commences, to purchase,

   (i) through the exercise of transferable rights,
       approximately 28% of the common stock of reorganized  
       Delphi at a discount to the negotiated plan value, and

  (ii) through the exercise of non-transferable rights, up to
       $572 million worth of shares (in the aggregate) of
       reorganized Delphi at the negotiated plan enterprise
       value price of $45 per share.

The rights offerings are expected to commence following
confirmation of Delphi's plan of reorganization and conclude 30
days thereafter prior to Delphi's emergence from Chapter 11
reorganization.

The rights will be issued only to those individuals who are
holders of Delphi's existing common stock as of the date the
Confirmation Hearing commences and after the Bankruptcy Court
has confirmed the company's Plan and the SEC has approved
Delphi's registration statement for the Rights Offerings.

                     Labor Transformation

Delphi previously negotiated and signed Memoranda of
Understanding with each of its six U.S. unions and GM covering
site plans, workforce transition as well as other comprehensive
transformational issues.  In addition, pursuant to the
previously announced attrition agreements, over 24,000 employees
voluntarily retired, accepted buy outs or opted to flow back to
GM within provisions of negotiated attrition plans.  Delphi will
continue to own and operate four UAW-represented sites, three
IUE-CWA-represented sites and one USW-represented site.  
Additionally, 25 North American sites will be sold or closed.

                     GM Settlement Agreements

Pursuant to the company's Plan, subject to Bankruptcy Court
approval as part of the plan confirmation process, Delphi and GM
have entered into comprehensive settlement agreements consisting
of a Global Settlement Agreement.  Most obligations set forth in
the GSA are to be performed upon the occurrence of the Effective
Date of the Plan or as soon as reasonably possible after.  By
contrast, resolution of most of the matters addressed in the MRA
will require a significantly longer period that will extend for
a number of years after confirmation of the Plan.

The GSA is intended to resolve outstanding issues among Delphi
and GM that have arisen or may arise before Delphi's emergence
from Chapter 11, and will be implemented by Delphi and GM in the
short term.  The GSA addresses, among other things, commitments
by Delphi and GM regarding OPEB and pension obligations, other
GM contributions with respect to labor matters, releases, and
claims treatment.

   -- GM will make significant contributions to cover costs  
      associated with certain post-retirement benefits for
      certain of the company's active and retired hourly
      employees, including health care and life insurance;

   -- Delphi will freeze its Hourly Pension Plan as soon as
      possible following the Effective Date, as provided in the
      union settlement agreements, and GM's Hourly Pension Plan
      will become responsible for certain future costs related
      to Delphi's Hourly Pension Plan;

   -- Delphi will transfer certain assets and liabilities of
      its Hourly Pension Plan to the GM Hourly Pension Plan, as
      set forth in the union term sheets;

   -- Shortly after the effective date, GM will receive an
      interest bearing note from Delphi in the amount of
      $1.5 billion to be paid within 10 days of its issuance;

   -- GM will make significant contributions to Delphi to fund
      various special attrition programs, consistent with the
      provisions of the union Memorandum of Understanding;

   -- GM and certain related parties and Delphi and certain
      related parties will exchange broad, global releases
      (which will not apply to certain surviving claims as set
      forth in the GSA); and

   -- On the Effective Date, subject to certain surviving
      claims in the GSA and in satisfaction of various GM
      claims, Delphi will pay GM $2.7 billion, and the GM Proof
      of Claim will be settled.

The MRA is intended to govern certain aspects of Delphi and GM's
commercial relationship following Delphi's emergence from
Chapter 11.  The MRA addresses, among other things, the scope of
GM's existing and future business awards to Delphi and related
pricing agreements and sourcing arrangements, GM commitments
with respect to reimbursement of specified ongoing labor costs,
the disposition of certain Delphi facilities, and the treatment
of existing agreements between Delphi and GM.

Through the MRA, Delphi and GM have agreed to certain terms and
conditions governing, among other things:
     
   -- the scope of existing business awards, related pricing
      agreements, and extensions of certain existing supply
      agreements;

   -- GM's ability to move production to alternative suppliers;
      and

   -- Reorganized Delphi's rights to bid and qualify for new
      business awards.

   a) GM will make significant, ongoing contributions to Delphi
      and Reorganized Delphi to reimburse the company for labor
      costs in excess of $26 per hour at specified
      manufacturing facilities;

   b) GM and Delphi have agreed to certain terms and conditions
      concerning the sale of certain of its non-core
      businesses;

   c) GM and Delphi have agreed to certain additional terms and
      conditions if certain of its businesses and facilities
      are not sold or wound down by certain future dates; and

   d) GM and Delphi have agreed to the treatment of certain
      contracts between Delphi and GM arising from Delphi's
      separation from GM and other contracts between Delphi and
      GM.

                       Pension Plans

One of Delphi's principal goals throughout Chapter 11 was to
retain the benefits accrued under the existing defined benefit
U.S. pension plans for both the hourly and salaried workforce.  
To accomplish this, Delphi will freeze the current hourly and
salaried U.S. pension plans as of the first of the month
following the Effective Date of the Plan and replace them with
contemporary plans.

As part of the resolution of its pension issues, Delphi obtained
temporary waivers of its minimum funding requirements from the
IRS and the PBGC, under the hourly plan and the salaried plan.  
By obtaining the waivers, Delphi can delay its minimum funding
requirements from June 15, 2007, through the expected Effective
Date of its Plan of Reorganization.

Delphi will also facilitate the transfer of $1.5 billion of the
company's net hourly pension obligations to GM's Hourly Pension
Plan under applicable federal law.  On the date of such
transfer, GM will receive a note in the principal amount of $1.5
billion that will be paid in full within 10 days of issuance.  
This transfer facilitates Delphi's resolution of its pension
issues and will help allow Delphi to make up required
contributions to the plans that were not made in full during
Chapter 11.

SOLO CUP: Fitch Affirms Junk Rating on Senior Subordinated Notes
----------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed the ratings for Solo Cup Company as:

  -- Issuer default rating 'B-';
  -- Senior secured first lien term loan 'B+/RR2';
  -- Senior secured revolving credit facility 'B+/RR2';
  -- Senior subordinated notes 'CCC/RR6'.

In addition, Fitch withdraws this rating:

  -- Senior secured second lien credit facility.

The Rating Outlook is Negative.  Approximately US$1 billion of
debt is covered by the ratings.  The company's Canadian bank
debt is excluded from the ratings.

The ratings reflect concerns about the company's weak cash
flows, high leverage, margin pressure due to intense competition
and higher resin and energy prices, low unit volume growth, a
lengthy and difficult integration process associated with the
Sweetheart acquisition, and a few remaining material weaknesses
in internal accounting controls.  The ratings also recognize
Solo's leading market share across its product categories,
strong brand recognition, diversified raw materials mix,
diverse, stable customer base, and modest near-term debt
maturities.

The Negative Outlook is based on constrained operating cash flow
generation and the need to execute asset sales to meaningfully
reduce leverage.  Although the company showed material
improvement in 2Q07 on several levels, risks to the credit
profile remain.  Solo's operating environment remains
challenging, and there is execution risk with regards to any
additional asset sales which might be contemplated.  Solo must
also meet covenant ratio requirements which continue to tighten
for the remainder of the year.

Despite these concerns, in the first half of 2007 the company
has made substantive strides in improving operations, filling
key management vacancies with experienced industry leaders,
addressing and resolving some key integration issues, reducing
funded debt and improving the liquidity profile.  Solo's
operating results in the second quarter were encouraging.  The
company's new technology system has been implemented which has
improved order management and reduced redundancies stemming from
the Sweetheart merger.  This and other manufacturing initiatives
are starting to lead to improved profitability and positive cash
flow.

If the company is able to demonstrate stabilized performance
during the remainder of the year, and if additional meaningful
asset sales are completed, Fitch will likely review the outlook
and recovery ratings on the capital structure for a possible
upgrade.

In connection with December 2006 financing arrangements, the
credit facility covenants were modified to allow for the sale of
up to 20% of consolidated assets in 2007, with proceeds used to
pay down debt.  After a recent sale-leaseback transaction, Solo
eliminated US$130 million of second-lien term loan,
precipitating the withdrawal of the ratings for this tranche.
The transaction was executed on six manufacturing facilities and
annual rent on the now leased properties is about US$11.7
million.  Solo continues to consider other asset sales and has
announced the sale of a 118 acre parcel in Chicago with expected
proceeds of US$15 million.

Fitch calculates 12 months ended July 1, 2007, total leverage
ratio of 7.5 times, and senior leverage ratio of 5.0x using
operating EBITDA of US$133.7 million.  Interest coverage for the
same period was 1.3x.  The company must meet a total leverage
ratio requirement of 8.75x by Sept. 30, 2007, and senior
leverage ratio of 5x by the same date.  Leverage and interest
coverage ratios calculated for bank covenant compliance make
certain adjustments for rents, interest expense and other items
related to asset sales on a pro-forma LTM basis and are not
equivalent to Fitch's calculations.  The company should be able
to meet upcoming ratio requirements, but Fitch believes
compliance could be by a narrow margin and the company may need
to seek a waiver from senior lenders if operating results do not
improve as expected.

As of July 01, 2007 the company had about US$92 million of
availability under the U.S. and Canadian revolvers and cash of
US$24.4 million for total liquidity of roughly US$116 million.
Near term debt maturities are not significant with US$6.5
million due in both 2007 and 2008.  Solo plans capital
expenditures of US$40 to US$50 million for 2007 and pension
contributions of US$12 million.  The amended credit agreement of
December 22, 2006, stipulates that all management fees to Vestar
will be suspended in 2007, unless the consolidated leverage
ratio is equal to or less than 4.5x.

Standard & Poor's Ratings Services, on July 13, 2007, assigned
its 'BB+' issue rating to the proposed US$490 million zero-
coupon convertible bonds of India's Tata Motors Ltd.
(BB+/Stable/--).  The bonds represent a direct, unsecured and
unsubordinated obligation of the company.  Proceeds from the
bonds will be used for capital expenditure, overseas
investments, acquisitions, and other general corporate purposes.

Moody's Investors Service, on July 26, 2005, gave Tata Motors
'Ba1' long-term corporate family and senior unsecured debt
ratings.


TITAN EUROPE: S&P Puts B Ratings on Watch on Interest Shortfalls
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services has placed its 'B' credit
rating on the class H notes in the Titan Europe 2006-1 PLC
transaction on CreditWatch with negative implications.  The
ratings on the other classes in the transaction are unaffected.
  
This CreditWatch placement follows technical interest shortfalls
on the class H notes and the subsequent deferral of EUR8,280
interest due on these notes.  Shortfalls have occurred because
of interest on liquidity facility drawings being paid, but are
not covered by the facility, loan interest being paid intra-
period, and legal expenses relating to the purchase of a B-note
on one of the securitized loans being paid senior in the
waterfall.  In this last instance, Standard & Poor's considers
that servicers should ensure that the securitization does not
bear the expense of transactions which occur outside the
structure.
  
The existence of a class X note senior to the class H note in
the waterfall, which absorbs excess spread, has ensured that
interest could not be paid to the class H noteholders, and while
this transaction allows interest to be deferred until a date
when there are available funds to pay the class H noteholders,
the absence of excess spread at the bottom of the waterfall will
prevent the interest shortfall from being rectified under the
present structure.
  
Standard & Poor's understands that transaction parties are aware
of the interest shortfalls and are exploring ways to rectify the
situation.  Given the recurring nature of interest shortfalls,
Standard & Poor's expects the rating on the class H notes to be
lowered to 'D' in the near future if the shortfalls remain
outstanding.
  
Titan Europe 2006-1 closed on March 22, 2006, and was originated
by Credit Suisse.  The notes were backed by a pool of 10 loans
secured by 56 commercial properties in Germany.
  
To date, the original balance of EUR723.25 million has amortized
by 41.3% to EUR411.76 million.  There have been four loan
prepayments and 36 properties remain in the portfolio.


TYSON FOODS: CEO Richard Bond Outlines Financial Turnaround
-----------------------------------------------------------
Tyson Foods Inc.'s President and Chief Executive Officer Richard
L. Bond described how the company will achieve a
US$700 million increase in pre-tax earnings in fiscal 2007 after
absorbing almost US$300 million in additional grain cost,
resulting in a US$1 billion operational improvement over last
year.

Despite a financial loss in fiscal 2006 and the absorption of
increased grain costs, Tyson has experienced strong progress in
2007 with solid earnings in the first, second and third
quarters.  Market conditions have improved and some export
markets have reopened, but the factors under the company's
control are where the biggest improvements have been, according
to Bond.

Tyson rationalized three beef plants to improve capacity
utilization, closed two prepared foods plants that didn't fit
the company's business model, sold two commodity poultry plants
and chose not to rebuild another poultry plant destroyed by
fire.  The company also cut costs significantly through a cost
management initiative started in mid-2006, which is expected to
result in an excess of US$250 million in savings for fiscal
2007.

Diluted earnings per share through the first nine months of
fiscal 2007 totaled US$0.66 and all segments of Tyson's business
are expected to be profitable in the fourth quarter.

"However, we are revising our fiscal 2007 guidance to US$0.72 to
US$0.80 per share," Mr. Bond reports.  "The fourth quarter is
turning out to be more challenging than expected.  Our beef
business has been affected by higher than expected live cattle
costs and a decline in beef revenues due to a disruption in
South Korean beef trade.  Meanwhile, live hog prices were higher
due to speculation about Chinese pork imports.

"In chicken, we successfully implemented price increases earlier
in the year, but gave up some sales volume as a result," Mr.
Bond adds.  "The company is now working through these larger
quantities of higher valued inventories."

Despite the fourth quarter, Mr. Bond says "I'm very excited and
optimistic about the company's long-term success because we've
made a lot of changes in how we run the business, and we've
reached a lot of milestones."

Tyson officials believe the company's long-term performance will
be enhanced by some new product initiatives.  Tyson's new 100%
All Natural(TM), Raised Without Antibiotics chicken, which was
launched in the third quarter, has been very well received.  It
has generated expanded distribution with current customers and
also resulted in new sales accounts.  Tyson will also soon roll
out advertisements to support a new line of restaurant-style
frozen snacks called Tyson(R) Any'tizers(TM), which was
successfully launched this summer.  In addition, this past
spring Tyson Food Service converted its entire line of
marinated, uncooked chicken to 100% All Natural(TM) to meet
growing consumer interest in all natural foods.

These product lines are examples of Tyson's efforts to continue
the creation of innovative and insight driven food solutions,
which is one of the key business strategies Bond will outline in
his presentation.  Other strategic principles the company is
implementing include optimization of commodity business models,
building a multi-national enterprise and efforts to
revolutionize the conversion of raw materials and by-products
into high-margin initiatives.

"In the food business...you must continually innovate to survive
and grow," according to Bond.  "This is why we finished building
our new Discovery Center research and development facility at a
time we were cutting costs elsewhere."

Tyson management is also continuing efforts to improve the
effectiveness of the company's business structure.  Mr. Bond
will report Tyson has started a new initiative called FAST,
which stands for focus, agility, simplify and trust.  The goal
is to place greater emphasis on doing only value-added
activities and encouraging faster decision making.

The evaluation process, which is now underway and will continue
through mid-October, is expected to help the company continue
streamlining the way it does business.  It is expected to
involve modifying or reducing some layers of management and
giving Team Members more decision-making authority.

Based in Springdale, Arkansas, Tyson Foods, Inc. (NYSE:TSN) --
http://www.tysonfoods.com/-- is a processor and marketer of   
chicken, beef, and pork.  The company produces a wide variety of
protein-based and prepared food products, which are marketed
under the "Powered by Tyson(TM)" strategy.  The company has
operations in China, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, and
the United Kingdom.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Aug. 24, 2007,
Moody's Investors Service affirmed Tyson Foods Inc.'s ratings,
including its Ba1 corporate family rating and Ba1 probability of
default rating.  The rating outlook is negative.

This book is a compendium of proceedings from a 1977 conference
conducted by the Bureau of Economics of the Federal Trade
commission.

Included papers focus on competition in selected sectors,
insurance and alternative delivery systems, and competition and
regulation.  Such an important and comprehensive array of
research belongs on the library shelves of all economists,
policymakers, health care administrators, professionals in the
health care field, and anyone concerned about the nature and
future of the health care industry.

The 24 chapters in this book are presented in four sections.  
The first is "Opening Remarks and Introduction," followed by
sections on "Competition in Selected Sectors," "Insurance,
Competition, and Alternative Delivery Systems," and "Competition
and Regulation."  Many of the chapters are titled "Comment,"
which contain comments by an individual on one of the topics
presented in the four major sections.  There is also a detailed
index that leads readers to specific subjects of interest.

The critical issue of competition in the healthcare industry was
omnipresent during the conference.  Most of the topics covered
during the conference addressed, to some degree or another, the
effects of competition.  The impact of competition on
physicians, hospitals, and insurers was analyzed.  Another area
of discussion focused on the interrelationship between
competition and alternative means of payment.  Appropriately for
a conference sponsored by the FTC, the interrelation of
competition and regulation came under study.

Warren Greenberg has a Ph.D. in economics from Bryn Mawr
University.  Author of many books and articles in the area of
industrial organization economics and healthcare, Mr. Greenberg
is also a professor of Health Economics and of Health Care
Sciences at George Washington University.

Monday's edition of the TCR delivers a list of indicative 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
