URS CORP: Expects US$38.7 Million 2007 Third Quarter Net Income
---------------------------------------------------------------
URS Corporation disclosed preliminary unaudited financial
results for its third quarter ended Sept. 28, 2007.  URS expects
third quarter 2007 revenues to be US$1.302 billion, an increase
of 20% compared with revenues of US$1.085 billion for the third
quarter of 2006.  Net income for the third quarter of 2007 is
expected to be US$38.7 million, an increase of 29% from net
income of US$29.9 million for the comparable period in 2006.

The preliminary results are being disclosed to provide
stockholders of URS and Washington Group International with
additional financial information regarding URS prior to upcoming
stockholder meetings.  Washington Group stockholders are
scheduled to meet on Oct. 30, 2007 to vote upon the proposed
acquisition of Washington Group by URS.  A Special Meeting of
URS Stockholders also is scheduled to be held Oct. 30, 2007, to
vote on the issuance of shares in conjunction with the
transaction.

In conjunction with the announcement of preliminary third
quarter results, the Company issued the following statement: "A
key component of the transaction value for Washington Group
stockholders is the URS shares they will receive if the
acquisition is approved.  The Company believes it is important
that Washington Group stockholders have this additional
financial information before their vote scheduled for
Oct. 30, 2007.  URS continues to perform very well, and our
results for the quarter reflect good growth across each of our
four key market sectors, the federal sector, the state and local
government sector, the private sector and international."

"URS believes that the combination with Washington Group offers
a compelling value for Washington Group stockholders, including
the potential upside of owning almost one-third of the combined
company, which we expect will be better positioned to capture
opportunities in high-growth markets."

URS will release its full financial results for the third
quarter on Nov. 7, 2007, after the market close, and will update
its guidance for fiscal 2007 at that time.

The preliminary unaudited financial results are estimates and
are subject to further review and analysis by the company's
management as part of the normal quarterly closing process
currently under way.

BOSTON SCIENTIFIC: Hires Two Officers in Clinical Sciences Group
----------------------------------------------------------------
Boston Scientific reported that Keith Dawkins, M.D., and
Takahiro Uchida, M.D., will be joining the company's Clinical
Sciences organization.

Dr. Dawkins will serve as Senior Vice President and Associate
Chief Medical Officer, sitting on both the Clinical Leadership
team and the company's Operating Committee.  He is an
internationally known senior interventional cardiologist at
Southampton University Hospital in England, and a former
President of the British Cardiovascular Society.  He trained in
medicine at London University (Guy's Hospital), and in
cardiology at the Brompton Hospital (London), John Radcliffe
Hospital (Oxford), and Stanford University Medical Center.  He
has served as an advisor to the Department of Health in the
United Kingdom, and he has worked closely with a number of
regulatory agencies there, including the Medicines and
Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency and the National Institute
for Clinical Excellence.

He will be responsible for leading the medical input process for
the company's Interventional Cardiology, Peripheral Intervention
and Neurovascular businesses.  He will also participate in the
formulation and execution of technology strategies for both
internal research and development, as well as business
development activities.  In addition, he will oversee
development and dissemination of scientifically based education
materials to inform customers and regulators.

"We are delighted to have Dr. Dawkins joining us," said Donald
S. Baim, M.D., Boston Scientific's Chief Medical and Scientific
Officer.  "He is a well-published scientific contributor who has
been actively involved in the development of the TAXUS(R) Stent
System.  He is also a respected medical lecturer who is
universally recognized for his keen insights into a broad
variety of cardiology and cardiology device-related issues.  The
addition of Dr. Dawkins will greatly enhance the capabilities of
the Clinical Sciences organization at Boston Scientific."

Dr. Dawkins will join the company in January.

Dr. Takahiro Uchida, who will serve as a Director in Clinical
Research and as Medical Director, International, is another key
addition to the Clinical Sciences organization.  He is a skilled
interventional cardiologist who received his Medical Degree from
Fukushima Medical University, followed by an M.S. in
Epidemiology from the Harvard School of Public Health, and a
Doctor of Philosophy in Medicine from Tokyo Women's Medical
University.  After training with the Japanese Pharmaceuticals
and Medical Devices Agency (PMDA), Dr. Uchida became a research
fellow in the Division of Clinical Biometrics at the Brigham and
Women's Hospital and the Harvard Clinical Research Institute.
Most recently, Dr. Uchida has served as a Medical Officer in the
Interventional Cardiovascular Device Branch of the Center for
Devices and Radiological Health (CDRH) of the U.S. Food and Drug
Administration.

He will be responsible for providing high-level medical input on
the design, regulatory strategy and conduct of a broad range of
international trials concentrated in the cardiovascular area,
while also providing a strong communication link to the key
regulatory bodies and customer base worldwide.

"Dr. Uchida will play an important role on our global Clinical
Sciences team," said Dr. Baim. "He is well qualified for his
important new role by virtue of his training as an
interventional cardiologist, uniquely augmented by his
experience with clinical trials from both the biostatistical
trial conduct and regulatory perspectives, through his service
with the Japanese and U.S. regulatory agencies."

Dr. Uchida will join the company in December.

"The addition of these two highly capable individuals
significantly strengthens Boston Scientific's Clinical Sciences'
capabilities, and further enhances our ability to serve as the
'voice of the patient' by providing the highest-level expert
clinical input throughout the product life cycle of our current
and future medical devices," added Dr. Baim.

"Combined with the talents of nearly 400 other professionals
within our group, the unique skills and contributions of Dr.
Dawkins and Dr. Uchida will be invaluable in helping us maintain
and expand Boston Scientific's worldwide leadership in the
treatment of cardiovascular disease and the broad range of other
life- threatening and disabling diseases."

CHRYSLER LLC: UAW Members Ratify 2007 National Labor Agreement
--------------------------------------------------------------
Chrysler LLC confirmed, on Saturday, Oct. 27, 2007, a new
Chrysler LLC-United Auto Workers Union 2007 national labor
agreement, in response to UAW's ratification results.

UAW members voted to ratify the new collective bargaining
agreement with Chrysler, with 56% votes in favor of the four-
year pact among production workers, and 51% in favor among
skilled trades workers.  About 94% of office and clerical
workers voted in favor of the agreement, and 79% of UAW-
represented Chrysler engineering workers approved the contract.

According to various reports citing sources familiar with the
matter, Local 1268, the last plant in Beldivere, Illinois to
vote on the contract, turned down the agreement by 55%.  
However, the contract's headroom of victory before the Belvidere
vote was enough for it to be approved.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Oct. 26, 2007,
citing The Wall Street Journal, results from four major Chrysler
plants in Michigan came in favor of the contract, tilting the
ratification scale towards the approval of the pact.  Except for
a union local in Beldivere, Illinois, about 55% of the total
vote count from 26 of 27 union locals has accepted the tentative
agreement.

Chrysler and the UAW reached a tentative agreement on Oct. 10,
after three months of bargaining and following a six-hour
nationwide UAW strike against the company.

"We are pleased that our UAW employees recognize that the new
agreement meets the needs of the company and its employees by
providing a framework to improve our long-term manufacturing
competitiveness," Tom LaSorda, Vice Chairman and President,
Chrysler LLC, said.

"Our members had to face some tough choices, and we had a solid,
democratic debate about this contract," UAW President Ron
Gettelfinger said.  "Now we’re going to come together as a union
-- and now it’s on the company to move ahead, increase their
market share and continue to build great cars and trucks here in
the U.S."

"There’s no question this was a difficult set of negotiations
during difficult times for the U.S. auto industry," UAW Vice
President General Holiefield, who heads the union’s Chrysler
Department, said.  "But with the support of our membership and
local leadership, we have an agreement that secures jobs and
wages and protects health care and pension benefits."

The new contract covers approximately 45,000 active workers at
Chrysler and more than 55,000 Chrysler retirees and 23,000
surviving spouses.  It will expire on Sept. 14, 2011.

                       About Chrysler LLC

Headquartered in Auburn Hills, Michigan, Chrysler LLC --
http://www.chrysler.com/-- produces Chrysler, Jeep(R), Dodge  
and Mopar(R) brand vehicles and products.

The company has dealers worldwide, including Canada, Mexico,
U.S., Germany, France, U.K., Argentina, Brazil, Venezuela,
China, Japan and Australia.

                          *    *    *

On Oct. 1, 2007, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services placed its
corporate credit ratings on Chrysler LLC and DaimlerChrysler
Financial Services Americas LLC on CreditWatch with positive
implications.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Aug. 8, 2007,
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services revised its loan and recovery
ratings on Chrysler LLC (B/Negative/--), including a 'BB-'
rating to the $5 billion "first-out" first-lien term loan
tranche.  This rating, two notches above the corporate credit
rating of 'B' on Chrysler LLC, and the '1' recovery rating
indicate S&P's expectation for very high recovery in the event
of payment default.  S&P also assigned a 'B' rating to the
$5 billion "second-out" first-lien term loan tranche.  This
rating, the same as the corporate credit rating, and the '3'
recovery rating indicate S&P's expectation for a meaningful
recovery in the event of payment default.

Moody's Investors Service has affirmed Chrysler Automotive LLC's
B3 Corporate Family Rating, and the Caa1 rating of the company's
$2 billion senior secured, second lien term loan in connection
with Monday's closing of DaimlerChrysler AG's sale of a majority
interest of Chrysler Group to Cerberus Capital Management LLC.


CHRYSLER LLC: UAW's Narrow Approval Cues S&P to Retain Watch
------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said its corporate credit
ratings on Chrysler LLC and DaimlerChrysler Financial Services
Americas LLC remain on CreditWatch with positive implications,
following the United Auto Workers' narrow approval of the new
Chrysler-UAW labor contract.  The ratings were placed on
CreditWatch on Sept. 26, 2007, based on S&P's belief that
Chrysler would reach a deal similar to the one General Motors
Corp. reached with the UAW on that date.
     
Chrysler and the UAW subsequently reached their own four-year
agreement as expected, and the UAW has now approved that
contract.
      
"We view the new contract as favorable to Chrysler compared with
past agreements," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Robert
Schulz, "and we believe the contract will support the company's
turnaround plan in North America."  The new contract is reported
to contain many of the same features as the GM contract,
including a new VEBA trust designed to take responsibility for
postretirement health care expenses and a lower-tier wage
structure for new hires.
     
The main focus of S&P's analysis in resolving the CreditWatch
listing will be the effect of the new contract on Chrysler's
liquidity in the near term, as well as prospects for Chrysler's
cash flow and liquidity during the next two years.  S&P will
view the new contract in light of Chrysler's multiyear plan to
return its North American operations to profitability, and S&P
will weigh the costs and benefits of the new contract, given the
company's workforce and retiree demographics.
     
Over the next two years, all three Michigan-based automakers
will face a range of challenges unrelated to their new
contracts, including slowing U.S. light-vehicle sales and shifts
away from what had been their most profitable vehicle segments
in recent years.

DELPHI CORP: Amends Chapter 11 Reorganization Plan
--------------------------------------------------
Delphi Corp., on Oct. 30, 2007, filed potential amendments to
its Joint Plan of Reorganization and related Disclosure
Statement with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern
District of New York.  The notice of potential amendments was
filed in accordance with a timetable established by the
Bankruptcy Court for the resumption on Nov. 8, 2007, of the
Disclosure Statement hearing commenced earlier this month on
Oct. 3, 2007.  The filing, which remains subject to further
amendment by the company on Nov. 7, pursuant to the Bankruptcy
Court's scheduling order, also included amendments to the Global
Settlement Agreement and Master Restructuring Agreement between
Delphi and General Motors Corp. and to the Investment Agreement
with Delphi's Plan Investors which are led by an affiliate of
Appaloosa Management L.P.

Delphi also filed a separate motion seeking approval of the
proposed amendment to the Investment Agreement at the Nov. 8,
2007 hearing.  The proposed Investment Agreement amendment,
which has been executed by Appaloosa and a supermajority of the
Plan Investors, is subject to the satisfaction of various
conditions including Appaloosa's approval of exit financing
terms under discussion with the company's principal lead lenders
and execution of the amendment by one additional plan investor
prior to the Nov. 8 hearing.

"Last evening's filings represent further substantial progress
in our Chapter 11 cases in a challenging capital markets
environment," said John Sheehan, Delphi vice president and chief
restructuring officer.  "These very focused potential amendments
reflect current market conditions, commensurate changes to our
proposed emergence capital structure and form of plan currency
contemplated for stakeholder distributions, and an effective
reduction of less than five percent in plan value to reflect
macroeconomic and industry conditions and uncertainties."

The potential amendments contemplate an approximate US$2 billion
reduction in the company's net debt at emergence.  Further, the
potential amendments reflect reductions in stakeholder
distributions to some junior creditors and interest holders
required to obtain consensus among Delphi's Creditors'
Committee, Plan Investors and settling parties, and changes
required by our Plan Investors and settling parties to obtain
their endorsement of the Plan and Disclosure Statement, the
company's settlements with GM and its US labor unions, the
company's emergence business plan and related agreements.

The potential amendments filed by the company include changes to
the Plan Investors' direct investment and certain stakeholder
recoveries:

Although the potential amendments are supported by the Creditors
Committee, GM and the Plan Investors, Delphi has been advised by
the Equity Committee that it will no longer support the
company's Plan if amended to reduce recoveries to common
stockholders as contemplated in the potential amendments.  
Absent a consensual resolution of the Equity Committee's
concerns, the Committee is expected to file objections to the
Disclosure Statement and Plan, seek a further adjournment of the
continued Disclosure Statement hearing and current emergence
timetable, and seek other relief from the Bankruptcy Court.  
Delphi will continue to work towards a consensus among its
principal stakeholders, including the Equity Committee, however,
the likelihood of such an outcome was speculative and not
assured.

Statement is available for free at:

Agreement Amendment Approval Motion and related pleadings can be

                 Adequacy of Disclosure Statement

The hearing to consider the adequacy of the Disclosure Statement
began on Oct. 3, 2007, and is scheduled to continue on Nov. 8,
2007.  The brief adjournment allowed Delphi to continue to
negotiate potential Plan of Reorganization (POR) amendments with
key stakeholders, make appropriate amendments to both the GM
settlement documentation and the Equity Purchase Commitment
Agreement, and continue discussions with potential exit lenders.  
Approval of the Disclosure Statement and related voting
solicitation procedures permits the company to solicit
acceptances of the proposed Plan of Reorganization later this
year and seek confirmation of the Joint Plan of Reorganization
by the Bankruptcy Court during the first quarter of 2008.

PERNOD RICARD: Net Sales Up 6.9% in First Quarter 2007/2008
-----------------------------------------------------------
Pernod Ricard S.A.'s consolidated net sales, excluding duties
and taxes, for the period July 1 to Sept. 30, 2007, increased
+6.9% to EUR1.6 billion, compared to EUR1.5 billion in the same
period a year ago.  Organic growth was +11.6%, with foreign
exchange and group structure impacts of -1.9% and -2.4%,
respectively.

Over the full 2007/08 financial year, the Group structure effect
is estimated at a negative of around EUR110 million on sales,
and a negative of around EUR10 million on operating profit from
ordinary activities.  In addition, the foreign exchange effect
on operating profit from ordinary activities may be estimated
between a negative EUR60 to EUR70 million at current exchange
rates.

The spirits business recorded growth of +13.4%*, due to good
performance by all geographic regions.  The wines business
improved by +3.3%*.

The development of the Group's luxury brands remains one of the
leading growth drivers (premium brands +23 %***).   In total,
the growth by all 15 strategic brands reached +9% in volume and
+16%* in value.  Nine of them recorded double-digit growth rates
in value*: Martell (+39%), Jameson (+24%), Ballantine's (+22%),
Havana Club (+22%), Chivas Regal (+19%), Mumm (+19%), Malibu
(+13%), The Glenlivet (+13%) and Jacob’s Creek (+10%).

Other Group spirits brands registered growth overall, in
particular with the success of premium and ultra premium brands
(Aberlour and Royal Salute) and standard premium brands (Ararat,
Something Special, Wyborowa and Olmeca) and this, in spite of
difficulties encountered by 100 Pipers (Thailand), Montilla
(Brazil) and Hiram Walker Liqueurs (US).

The wines business excluding champagne posted growth, focusing
on the fast-growing premium brand portfolio and featuring a
decline in secondary brands.

All geographic regions contributed to organic growth:  

               Asia/Rest of World: EUR498 million
               (+12.4%, being organic growth +13%)

Again, China showed great strength, posting net sales organic
growth of +30%, in particular due to Martell and Ballantine's
superior qualities, and this, in spite of slower growth observed
in the whisky category.

India also recorded very strong growth due to its Indian whisky
portfolio, including Royal Stag,  Imperial Blue and Blenders
Pride, and to the success of imported whisky brands, especially
Chivas Regal and Ballantine's.

Starting from a lower sales level, most other markets also
posted strong double-digit growth: Taiwan, Malaysia, Indonesia,
Vietnam, whereas Thailand slowed down its decline.

South Africa, where Jameson continued to make its breakthrough,
registered further strong growth.

Asian Duty Free was also dynamic with Chivas Regal, Ballantine's
and Martell.

The Pacific Region (Australia and New Zealand) declined
following strong price increases, which especially affected wine
brands.

    *  Organic growth
   **  Country with a GNP/capita < US$10,000
  ***  Brands of an equal or superior quality to Chivas Regal
       12 yo and Martell VS.

                    Americas: EUR393 million
                  (-3.1%, organic growth +11%)

North America (organic growth: +7.1%)

Jameson, Malibu, The Glenlivet and Wild Turkey continued to
expand rapidly in the U.S.  Chivas Regal sales increased
slightly, whereas Martell and Mumm declined following the price
increases.  Kahlua and Beefeater sales decreased again.
The wine and champagne portfolio grew strongly (Perrier-Jouet,
Mumm Napa, Jacob's Creek, Montana, Campo Viejo).  Growth
remained strong over the quarter in Canada and Mexico.

Central and South America (organic growth: +34.1%)

Central and South America experienced outstanding growth,
primarily due to Chivas Regal (Venezuela), Ballantine’s (Brazil,
Chile) and Havana Club (Chile, Cuba).

Europe: EUR508 million (+10.9%, being organic growth +12%)

Europe recorded a sharp acceleration, especially for the 15
strategic brands whose sales increased by +16%*.  Sales growth
was enhanced by favorable comparison bases.  Sales increased in
most European countries; Western European countries experienced
the strongest growth overall, whereas Central and Eastern
Europe, notably Russia and Poland, developed rapidly.

France: EUR157 million (organic growth +5%)

First quarter sales held up well in France, with dynamic sales
by most whisky brands, in particular premium brands (Chivas
Regal, Aberlour, The Glenlivet), partly due to strong
promotional activities.  Mumm gained market shares and benefited
from price increases in the previous financial year and a
favorable mix effect (vintage and rose).  Aniseed product sales
declined, due to bad weather in the summer and in spite of a
marked recovery in September.

"First quarter performance was excellent and again illustrated
the success of our premiumization strategy and development in
emerging countries.  These very good results enable the
confirmation, in current market conditions and on a like-for-
like basis*, of guidance of strong growth in sales and operating
profit from ordinary activities for Pernod Ricard in 2007/08,"
Patrick Ricard specified.

A guidance figure for organic growth in operating profit from
ordinary activities will be released at the Annual General
Meeting on Nov. 7, 2007.

GAP INC: Issues Statement on Child Labor Allegations
----------------------------------------------------
Gap Inc. issued a statement clarifying information surrounding a
UK media report on the use of child labor in an unauthorized
facility that produced a single product for Gap.

Earlier this week, the company was informed about an allegation
of child labor at a facility in India that was working on one
product for GapKids.  An investigation was immediately launched.  
The company noted that a very small portion of a particular
order placed with one of its vendors was apparently
subcontracted to an unauthorized subcontractor without the
company’s knowledge or approval.  This is in direct violation of
the company’s agreement with the vendor under its Code of Vendor
Conduct.

Marka Hansen, president of Gap North America, said:

"We strictly prohibit the use of child labor.  This is a non-
negotiable for us -– and we are deeply concerned and upset by
this allegation.  As we’ve demonstrated in the past, Gap has a
history of addressing challenges like this head-on, and our
approach to this situation will be no exception.

"In 2006, Gap Inc. ceased business with 23 factories due to code
violations.  We have 90 people located around the world whose
job is to ensure compliance with our Code of Vendor Conduct.

"As soon as we were alerted to this situation, we stopped the
work order and prevented the product from being sold in stores.  
While violations of our strict prohibition on child labor in
factories that produce product for the company are extremely
rare, we have called an urgent meeting with our suppliers in the
region to reinforce our policies.

"Gap Inc. has one of the industry’s most comprehensive programs
in place to fight for workers’ rights overseas.  We will
continue to work with the government, NGOs, trade unions, and
other stakeholder organizations in an effort to end the use of
child labor."

Gap Inc. (NYSE: GPS) -- http://www.gapinc.com/-- is an       
international specialty retailer offering clothing, accessories
and personal care products for men, women, children and babies
under the Gap, Banana Republic, Old Navy, Forth & Towne and

in the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, France,

international presence with franchise agreements for Gap and

Kabel Deutschland signed a EUR650 million Senior Term Loan
Facility which will rank pari-passu with the Company’s existing
EUR1,150 million Senior Term Loan.

The Senior Add-on Facility will provide funding for the
previously announced acquisition of 1.2 million cable
subscribers from the Orion Group for EUR585 million and,
together with direct funding from KDG, will fund potential
additional acquisitions of up to another 200 million Euros.

The Senior Add-on Facility matures in March 2013 and carries a
coupon of EURIBOR + 325bps.  The Facility will be unfunded for a
period of time until the Acquisitions are completed, and any or
all of the Facility can be cancelled at any time.  During this
unfunded period the Facility will pay a ticking fee.  The
Facility will have the same financial covenants as the existing
Senior Term Loan.

The Company expects to meet all current covenants under its
existing financing obligations.  Closing of the Orion Group
asset purchase is anticipated for spring 2008 after FCO
clearance.

                    About Kabel Deutschland

Headquartered in Unterfoehring, Germany, Kabel Deutschland --
http://www.kabeldeutschland.com/-- operates cable
networks in 13 German states and supplies its services to more
than 9 million connected TV households in Germany.  It is
Germany's largest cable network operator.  KDG offers an open
digital TV platform for all program providers.  The company
operates the networks, markets cable connections and provides
comprehensive services for all matters of cable connectivity.
In fiscal year ended March 31, 2007, Kabel Deutschland reported
a total revenue of around EUR1.1 billion.  The company has
around 2,700 employees.


KABEL DEUTSCHLAND: Financing Doesn't Change Moody's Ba3 Rating
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service said Kabel Deutschland GmbH's Ba3
rating (negative outlook) remained unchanged following the
company's announcement of its financing package for the
acquisition of 1.2 million subscribers announced in September
2007 (for EUR585 million) as well as an anticipated acquisition
of additional 400 thousand subscribers in its area (for EUR174
million).

The overall financing package will be comprised of an additional
tranche of EUR650 million drawn under the existing senior
secured facility and existing liquidity provided by cash and
availability under its revolving credit facility.  The remaining
part of the overall package will be contributed from the recent
asset sales. Moody's notes that the anticipated increase in the
senior secured debt is likely to have a negative impact on the
LGD assessment (currently LGD-5) of the senior notes.

Based on a pro-forma contribution of the new subscribes and the
company's EBITDA guidance for the fiscal year 2007/08 in the
amount of EUR430 million to EUR440 million, Moody's understands
that the company would not require a consent from the
bondholders to raise additional debt including the portion to be
used to purchase additional 400 thousand subscribes.  The bond
indenture stipulates a debt incurrence test of 5.0x Debt to
EBITDA and carve-out baskets, in particular EUR125 million
general basket, which KDG will utilize to raise additional debt.  
Based on a pro-forma EBITDA and additional debt financing,
Moody's expects the company to be leveraged at approximately
5.1x Debt to EBITDA (unadjusted for leases).

This leverage level is predicated on the company's achievement
of its EBITDA guidance as well as realization of the expected
EBITDA contribution from the new subscribers. The Ba3 rating is
supported by adequate liquidity through the availability of the
committed EUR325 million revolving facility (of which EUR125
million is expected to be drawn for the acquisition) and the
availability of committed acquisition financing. However,
headroom under the company's maintenance covenants will be
narrow in the near-term.

The rating would come under a downward pressure if the company
fails to reach its pro-forma guidance and/or the leverage
metrics weaken to the level above 5.5x Debt to EBITDA (as
defined by Moody's and excluding any adjustments for equity
participation expenses) on a sustained basis.

Based in Germany, KDG is the largest network Level 3 cable
television provider in Germany.  For the three months ended
June 30, 2007, the company generated total revenues of EUR290
million.

ALITALIA SPA: TPG Capital Unable to Form Italian Consortium
-----------------------------------------------------------
TPG Capital informed financial advisor Citi that, at the moment,
they are unable to finalize an Italian-led consortium, but will
continue to follow the evolution of the Alitalia S.p.A. dossier
with interest, should an opportunity or new elements arise.

The Italian government had been holding talks with TPG Capital
over a possible re-bid by the private equity firm for Italy's
49.9% stake in Alitalia.

A consortium of TPG Capital, MatlinPatterson Global Advisers LLC
and Mediobanca S.p.A. had withdrawn its bid for the national
carrier during the previous tender to sell Alitalia, saying it
was not "in a position to comply with all of the requirements."  
The consortium described the requirements as "too complex and
cryptic."  TPG Capital told the Italian government it may rejoin
the bidding process if the rules of the process were changed.

As reported in the TCR-Europe on Oct. 23, 2007, Alitalia will
choose the buyer for Italy's stake on Nov. 10, 2007.  Alitalia
chairman Maurizio Prato told the Italian parliament that he will
recommend an industrial buyer for Italy's stake within the first
ten days of November, Agenzia Giornalistica Italia relates.  The
government will then decide how to finalize the sale of its
stake.

Alitalia opened talks, through the financial advisor Citi and
industrial advisor Roland Berger, with:

   -- OAO Aeroflot,
   -- Air France-KLM,
   -- AP Holding S.p.A.,
   -- Cordata Baldassarre,
   -- Deutsche Lufthansa AG,
   -- TPG Capital.

DBK LEASING: Moody's Assigns Ba3/Not-Prime Currency Ratings
-----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned Ba3/Not-Prime long- and
short-term foreign currency and local currency issuer ratings to
DBK Leasing.  The outlooks for the ratings are stable.

According to Moody's, DBKL's ratings are underpinned by the
company's high capital cushion, which is sufficient to absorb
credit risks (although this is likely to gradually change),
strong liquidity and niche in leasing projects.

On the other hand, the ratings reflect:

   (i) the company's limited franchise, partly due to the short
       period of its operations and resulting low profitability;

  (ii) some concerns as to whether the company will be
       successful in significantly increasing its franchise and
       funding;

(iii) the lack of operating history in the competitive
       environment; and

  (iv) the possibility of politically motivated decisions given
       its ownership structure.

The Ba3 issuer rating is a two-notch uplift from the Baseline
Credit Assessment of B2, based on Moody's assessment of the very
high probability of extraordinary support from the parent.  This
reflects DBKL's 100% ownership by the Development Bank of
Kazakhstan (DBK, with a BCA of 11-13), the potential reputation
damage to DBK from a default of DBKL, DBKL's small size --
providing for a greater ability to provide support, as well as
DBKL's good fit with DBK's strategy.  Nonetheless, the fact that
DBKL is a small company with no significant operations to date
limits the importance of DBKL to DBK and as a result diminishes
support assumptions.  DBKL is closely dependant on DBK due to
the fact that all funding and capital currently come from the
parent.

Successful development of the company's franchise with no
excessive rise in the risk profile, improvement in funding
diversification as well as development of risk management
systems would exert upward pressure on the rating.  The transfer
of DBKL's stake directly to the state (there is a small
possibility that in the future the stake of the company might be
transferred to the state holding "Sustainable Development Fund
"Kazyna") could cause a positive uplift in DBKL's issuer rating.
However, this is not expected in the near term.  Inability to
build a sustainable franchise, assumption of excessive risks, as
well as the inability to obtain affordable funding could lower
DBKL's rating, as could any sovereign downgrade or signs of
diminished willingness on the part of the parent to provide
support.

Based in Astana, Kazakhstan, DBKL is a 100% leasing subsidiary
company of the Development Bank of Kazakhstan and was set up in
2005.  It reported total assets of US$60 million and equity
US$52 million at the end of 2006.

MORGAN STANLEY: Moody's Rates EUR16.75 Mln Class E Notes at Ba3
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned long term credit ratings to
five classes of notes issued by Morgan Stanley Investment
Management Mezzano B.V., a Dutch special purpose company.  

The ratings are:

   -- Aaa to the EUR254,500,000 Class A Senior Floating Rate
      Notes due 2024;

   -- Aa2 to the EUR10,500,000 Class B Deferrable Interest
      Floating Rate Notes due 2024;

   -- A2 to the EUR19,250,000 Class C Deferrable Interest
      Floating Rate Notes due 2024;

   -- Baa3 to the EUR10,000,000 Class D Deferrable Interest
      Floating Rate Notes due 2024; and

   -- Ba3 to the EUR16,750,000 Class E Deferrable Interest
      Floating Rate Notes due 2024.

The ratings of the senior notes and the deferrable notes address
the expected loss posed to investors by the legal maturity of
each class (in 2024).

These ratings are based upon:

   1. an assessment of the eligibility criteria , collateral
      quality tests and portfolio profile tests applicable to
      the portfolio ;

   2. the protection against losses through the subordination of
      the more junior classes of notes to the more senior
      classes of notes;

   3. the overcollateralization of the Notes;

   4. the proposed currency swap transactions, which insulate
      the Issuer from the volatility of the foreign currency
      exchange rates in respect of non-Euro denominated
      obligations;

   5. the expertise of Morgan Stanley Investment Management
      Limited as collateral manager; and

   6. the legal and structural integrity of the issue.

This transaction is a high yield collateralized loan obligation
backed by a collateral portfolio of around EUR350 million,
comprised primarily of European senior secured, second lien and
mezzanine loans and high yield bonds.  The portfolio will be
actively managed by Morgan Stanley Investment Management
Limited, and will be approximately 80% ramped at closing with
the remaining assets expected to be purchased during the twelve
months ramp up period.  The manager must maintain compliance
with a range of portfolio tests which include, amongst others, a
diversity score test, a weighted average rating factor test, a
weighted average recovery rate test and a weighted average
spread test.

Thereafter, the portfolio of loans will be actively managed and
the portfolio manager will have the option to buy or sell assets
in the portfolio.  Any addition or removal of assets will be
subject to a number of portfolio criteria.

On Oct. 1, 2007, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services placed its
corporate credit ratings on Chrysler LLC and DaimlerChrysler
Financial Services Americas LLC on CreditWatch with positive
implications.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Aug. 8, 2007,
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services revised its loan and recovery
ratings on Chrysler LLC (B/Negative/--), including a 'BB-'
rating to the US$5 billion "first-out" first-lien term loan
tranche.  This rating, two notches above the corporate credit
rating of 'B' on Chrysler LLC, and the '1' recovery rating
indicate S&P's expectation for very high recovery in the event
of payment default.  S&P also assigned a 'B' rating to the
US$5 billion "second-out" first-lien term loan tranche.  This
rating, the same as the corporate credit rating, and the '3'
recovery rating indicate S&P's expectation for a meaningful
recovery in the event of payment default.

Moody's Investors Service has affirmed Chrysler Automotive LLC's
B3 Corporate Family Rating, and the Caa1 rating of the company's
US$2 billion senior secured, second lien term loan in connection
with Monday's closing of DaimlerChrysler AG's sale of a majority
interest of Chrysler Group to Cerberus Capital Management LLC.

POPE & TALBOT: CCAA Protection Cues S&P to Put Default Ratings
--------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its corporate credit
rating on pulp and lumber producer Pope & Talbot Inc. to 'D'
from 'CCC' after the company announced that it has applied for
protection from creditors under the Companies' Creditors
Arrangement Act of Canada.  The rating on the company's senior
unsecured debt was also lowered, to 'D' from 'CC'.  The company
had about $440 million of adjusted debt as of June 30, 2007.
     
Operating earnings and cash flow declined substantially
following challenging operating conditions, including weak
lumber markets and high-price raw materials in the pulp
business.  The company entered a forbearance agreement with its
lending group.  The company plans to use the protections of
the CCAA to gain time for it to continue to explore strategic
alternatives, including asset sales.

Pope & Talbot Inc. (Pink Sheets:PTBT) -- http://www.poptal.com/  
-- is a pulp and wood products business.  The company, based in

The Meetings, Conferences and Seminars column appears in the
Troubled Company Reporter each Wednesday. Submissions via e-mail
to conferences@bankrupt.com are encouraged.

  
                            *********

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

Each Tuesday edition of the TCR contains a list of companies
with insolvent balance sheets whose shares trade higher than
US$3 per share in public markets.  At first glance, this list
may look like the definitive compilation of stocks that are
ideal to sell short.  Don't be fooled.  Assets, for example,
reported at historical cost net of depreciation may understate
the true value of a firm's assets.  A company may establish
reserves on its balance sheet for liabilities that may never
materialize.  The prices at which equity securities trade in
public market are determined by more than a balance sheet
solvency test.

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

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