DELPHI CORP: Equity Panel Balks at Disclosure Statement Changes
---------------------------------------------------------------
The Official Committee of Equity Security Holders of Delphi
Corporation and its debtor-affiliates submitted an emergency
motion with the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District
of New York to adjourn the hearing scheduled on Nov. 8, 2007, to
a later date, on, and fix a new time to object to,

   (i) the Debtors' request for approval of the Disclosure
       Statement,

  (ii) the proposed procedures for soliciting votes on the
       Plan, and

(iii) the proposed amendment to the Delphi-Appaloosa Equity
       Purchase and Commitment Agreement.

As reported in the yesterday's Troubled Company Reporter, Delphi
Corp. asked the Court to adjourn until "later this month" the
hearing currently scheduled for Nov. 8 to consider potential
amendments to its Joint Plan of Reorganization and related
Disclosure Statement as well as a proposed amendment to its
Investment Agreement.

Delphi continues to expect that it will emerge from Chapter 11
during the first quarter of 2008.

Bonnie Steingart, Esq., at Fried, Frank, Harris, Shriver
& Jacobson LLP, in New York, noted that on Oct. 29, 2007,
under the guise of filing "amendments," the Debtors jettisoned
the Plan and Disclosure Statement filed on Sept. 6, 2007.  The
new October plan and October disclosure statement, he notes,
materially modify, among other things,

   (i) the Debtors' total enterprise value by approximately
       $900 million;

  (ii) the total enterprise value on which the purchase price
       for the plan investors is based by $1 billion;

(iii) the ownership structure of reorganized Delphi;

  (iv) the capital structure of reorganized Delphi;

   (v) the nature and amount of distributions to each major
       stakeholder class (other than, notably, the parties with
       claims pursuant to the MDL settlements); and

  (vi) the rights offering and warrants described in the
       September Plan and September Disclosure Statement.

Ms. Steingart points out that the magnitude of the changes in
recoveries and structure results in a new Chapter 11 plan that:

   (1) eschews the Delphi-Appaloosa Equity Purchase and
       Commitment Agreement approved by the Court on August 2,
       2007;

   (2) is not consensual;

   (3) amounts to a massive shift in value being distributed to
       stakeholders; and

   (4) changes the financial underpinnings of the September
       Plan.

Thus, whether viewed in form or substance the magnitude of the
changes are enormous, Ms. Steingart asserts.  She pointed out
there are approximately 340 pages of changed and new disclosure.

Ms. Steingart noted that the Debtors, in asking the Court on
Sept. 27, 2007, and again on Oct. 3, 2007, to continue the
hearing on the September Disclosure Statement, represented to
the Court that only "laser-like" changes to the September Plan
would be forthcoming.  However, the changes the Debtors propose
are far from "laser-like," drastically modifying stakeholder
recoveries and the structure of distributions under the
September Plan, as well as give rise to numerous disclosure and
confirmation objections.

Ms. Steingart recounted that since the adjournment of the
Oct. 3, 2007 Disclosure Statement Hearing, the Debtors have
met with their stakeholders on several occasions.  During
these meetings and discussions, many of which the Equity
Committee was excluded from participating in, apparently the
Debtors completely abandoned the consensual deal and yielded
to pressure exerted by the ad hoc committee of bondholders,
the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors and the Plan
Investors.  During this period the Equity Committee received
draft term sheets which reflected continuing diminution of
recoveries for equity.  The end result has been changes to
recoveries that are so profound they can only be described as a
new Chapter 11 plan.  The recovery to equity holders as a
practical matter has been eviscerated.

Specifically, Ms. Steingart detailed, the distribution of
primary equity has been eliminated, the warrants have changed
from a five-year to a six-month duration, and equity's
participation in the discount rights offering has been
eliminated and the entire participation is now given to
unsecured creditors.  To add insult to injury, the New Plan, she
said, also incorporates a "death trap" provision with respect to
the proposed meager recovery to equity holders.  In addition,
certain unsecured creditors are receiving a recovery that is
greater than the amount of their claims, which is disguised by a
manipulation of the Debtors'
total enterprise value.

Ms. Steingart also noted that:

    -- the Plan Investors have renegotiated their deal and are
       now receiving significantly more for their investment
       under the New EPCA than what was agreed to in the
       Current EPCA.  This is true even though the Plan
       Investors, who  received significant fees to date for
       their "commitment,"  remain bound by the Current EPCA,
       which is still in place and has not been terminated.
       Furthermore, there is a total lack of transparency as to
       why the Debtors have sought to alter drastically the
       consensual deal.

    -- It appears that management was negotiating its
       compensation and incentive plans with the Plan Investors
       and the Creditors Committee at the same time they were
       allowing the renegotiation of the terms of the Plan and
       the EPCA.  The New Disclosure Statement provides plans
       and programs under which emergence bonuses for
       executives alone are far in excess of the recoveries now
       proposed for equity.

Ms. Steingart asserts that in any event, due process mandates
that parties be provided at least 25 days to evaluate the New
Disclosure Statement, as required by Rules 2002(b) and 3017(a)
of the Federal Rules of Bankruptcy Procedure.  As much as the
Debtors may desire, they are not entitled to require creditors
and equity holders to analyze and evaluate the New Disclosure
Statement and formulate appropriate objections in four days, she
contends.

Bankruptcy Rule 2002(b) requires that parties-in-interest be
given 25 days' notice of "the time fixed for filing objections
and the hearing to consider approval of a disclosure statement"
while Bankruptcy Rule 3017(a) provides that the court will hold
a hearing to consider approval of the Disclosure Statement on 25
days' notice.

Thus, to protect the integrity of the Chapter 11 process, the
Equity Committee asks the Court to require the Debtors to comply
with the notice and hearing requirements of Bankruptcy Rules
2002(b) and 3017(a).

This will ensure that all parties in interest have ample
opportunity to evaluate the implications of the New Plan and the
adequacy of the disclosures in the New Disclosure Statement with
respect to the new structure, Ms. Steingart asserts.

Brandes Investment Partners, L.P., a registered investment
advisory firm that provides investment advisory services, echoed
the Equity Committee's calls for an adjournment of the
Disclosure Statement Hearing.

Brandes Investment, which currently has under management almost
4% of the issued and outstanding shares of Delphi, agrees with
the Equity Committee's position that given the significant
revisions from the Original Plan and the impact the substantive
rights and recoveries of the Debtors' stakeholders, the Debtors
have now put forth in their 11-hour filing is, in effect, a
completely new plan.  In view of these changes, the Debtors
should be required to comply with the notice and hearing
requirements and adjourn the Disclosure Statement Hearing,
Brandes maintains.

     Equity Committee Wants New Disclosure Statement Denied

As required by Section 1125(a)(1) of the Bankruptcy Code, a
Chapter 11 disclosure statement must contain information
sufficient to enable holders of claims and interests in the
debtor's estates to make an informed judgment on the plan.

Despite the many economic and structural changes in the Debtors'
proposed plan, which affect virtually every one of the Debtors'
constituencies, the New Disclosure Statement does not provide
information critical to the ability of the Debtors' stakeholders
to make an informed judgment to vote to accept or reject the New
Plan, Ms. Steingart asserts.  Moreover, she notes, the proposed
plan is unconfirmable as a matter of law.

In that light, the Equity Committee asks the Court to deny
approval of the proposed amended Disclosure Statement filed on
Oct. 29, 2007.

As previously reported, the Equity Committee supported the Plan
and Disclosure Statement filed on Sept. 6, 2007, which was based
upon a consensual deal reached with stakeholders in the
Chapter 11 cases.  However, the Equity Committee notes that the
documents submitted by the Debtors on October 29 provides for a
virtually unrecognizable revised plan of reorganization and
disclosure statement that reflects a complete re-trade of the
consensual deal memorialized in the Original Plan.

Ms. Steingart avers that this re-trade, on information and
belief, was instigated by groups who are using the tightening in
the credit markets and certain minor short term inventory
adjustments related to General Motors Corp. as a pretext for
demanding more value for themselves, at the expense of existing
equity.

According to Ms. Steingart, the tightening of the credit markets
was hardly an unforeseen subsequent event; to the contrary,
reports of decreased credit capacity date back to the mid-July
2007 timeframe, almost two months prior to the filing of the
Original Plan and Original Disclosure Statement on September 6.
Similarly, she notes, forecasts relating to North American
automotive production levels were announced prior to the time
the Original Disclosure Statement was filed and by their own
admission the Debtors characterized such information as
overstated.

The Debtors, according to Ms. Steingart, nonetheless facilitated
this improper and unwarranted re-trade by, among other things:

     * excluding the Equity Committee from the critical
       negotiation sessions at which the New Plan was
       formulated, and only "inviting" them back to the table
       after existing equity's recoveries had already been
       gutted;

     * acceding to the demands of unsecured creditors that they
       be given the right (allocated to existing equity under
       the Original Plan) to participate in a discount equity
       offering that was intended to be a significant source of
       value for existing equity;

     * agreeing to replace equity holders' previously agreed
       recoveries with "rights" with de minimus value to
       monetize portions of other stakeholders' primary
       distributions of new common stock; and

     * permitting the Plan Investors, led by Appaloosa
       Management, L.P., to renegotiate their contractual
       commitment to invest in the reorganized Debtors,
       effectively creating a windfall of value for their
       investment.

Ms. Steingart asserts that the New Disclosure Statement does not
contain sufficient disclosure as to:

A. The reasons why the Debtors determined it necessary and in
    the best interest of stakeholders to renegotiate the fully
    consensual agreement embodied in the Original Plan or the
    basis for the changes underlying the New Plan.

       The New Disclosure Statement provides no rational basis
       for the Debtors' significant downward adjustment of its
       total enterprise value, approximately $900,000,000, and
       the subsequent shifting of value from equity holders to
       unsecured creditors and to the Plan Investors.

       The New Disclosure Statement's vague references to
       "lowered projections" and "changes in the Business Plan"
       provide no such explanation because the changes in the
       Business Plan consist of reduced EBITDAR projections for
       a single year of the Debtors' four year business plan,
       with increases in projected cash flows for the entire
       2008 through 2011 period due to the New Plan's changes
       in the reorganized Debtors' capital structure and the
       reduction of its debt burden.  These changes neither
       justify nor explain the virtual elimination of an
       estimated $470 million of value to equity holders.

B. Any reasonable justification for the Debtors' allowing the
    Plan Investors and others to escape their commitments to
    the terms of the Original Plan as set forth in the EPCA
    approved by the Court on Aug. 2, 2007.

       The EPCA has not been terminated and remains in full
       force.  Thus, it appears that the Debtors made the
       fundamental changes embodied in the New Plan, with its
       effective elimination of the ability of existing equity
       holders to realize any meaningful value from the
       Debtors' reorganization, simply because the Plan
       Investors and others allied with the Plan Investors
       demanded that they do so.  The absence of justification
       is especially egregious since the Plan Investors were
       awarded and paid substantial fees and break up
       protections in exchange for their commitment to the deal
       embodied in the Original Plan.

C. Additional material information about the New Plan to which
    the Debtors' stakeholders, including existing equity, must
    have in order to make an informed decision with respect to
    the New Plan.

       For instance, one of the Debtors' most significant
       assets is its affirmative claims against and defenses to
       claims by GM.  It is the proposed settlement of these
       claims that has enabled the Debtors to reach its
       transformation agreements with GM and various unions,
       formulate a Chapter 11 plan and propose to pay creditors
       in full on their allowed claims.  This value from GM
       appropriately provided the source of the recovery to
       equity under the Original Plan.  Yet, despite the
       importance of the GM claims and the settlement thereof,
       the New Disclosure Statement's assessment of the claims
       falls well short of what is needed to make an informed
       judgment as to the merits and reasonableness of the
       settlement.

Ms. Steingart also asserts that the New Disclosure Statement
must not be approved because it relates to a plan that is
patently unconfirmable.  He cites, among other things:

  * The New Plan Impermissibly Provides Senior Unsecured
    Creditors With More Than Par-Plus-Accrued Recovery.

       Under the New Plan, all unsecured creditors will receive
       a 100% recovery, but instead of a combination of cash
       and primary equity at a plan value of $45 per share,
       senior unsecured creditors will receive a distribution
       of primary equity at a New Plan value of $41.58, plus
       rights to acquire additional equity shares at $34.98, a
       significant discount to the New Plan value of $41.58.
       However, the equity distributions to GM under the New
       Plan remain based on the total enterprise value set
       forth in the Original Plan of $45 per share.  Assuming a
       consistent plan value of $45 per share for all
       distributions to all stakeholders, under the New Plan,
       senior unsecured creditors are to receive more than
       their allowed claims -— a recovery that is strictly
       prohibited by Section 1129(b)(2)(B) of the Bankruptcy
       Code.

  * The GM Settlement, a Cornerstone of the New Plan and the
    Basis for Recoveries, is Not Reasonable or Appropriate.

       The GM Settlement is not reasonable and in the best
       interests of the Debtors' estates because it does not
       provide for an equitable allocation of value.  Current
       equity holders are not receiving sufficient value from
       the GM Settlement in exchange for releases of claims
       against GM, which have value in the billions of dollars;
       the GM Claims cannot be released by equity in exchange
       for $69 million of very short-term securities.

  * The New Plan Impermissibly Provides for Post-Petition
    Interest on Creditors Claims.

       As a general rule, unsecured creditors are not entitled
to postpetition interest unless the debtors can demonstrate it
is required under either the best interest test set forth in
Section 1129(a)(7)(ii) of the Bankruptcy Code or the fair and
equitable test set forth in Section 1129(b)(1).  The New Plan
provisions for postpetition interest can not be justified under
both tests.

  * The Treatment of the Section 510(b) Equity Claims under the
    New Plan Violates the Bankruptcy Code

       Under the MDL Settlement and pursuant to the New Plan,
       the Securities Class and ERISA Class would receive, in
       the aggregate, in addition to insurance proceeds and
       certain other payments, an allowed claim and interest
       totaling $204 million, which claims is to be paid in the
       same plan currency that will be distributed to general
       unsecured creditors.  By this treatment under the New
       Plan, these claims by recipients of the MDL Settlement,
       claims arising out of the purchase or sale of equity
       securities would be placed in a class senior to equity,
       when at best they should be pari passu with equity
       pursuant to Section 510(b) of the Bankruptcy Code.

          Lead Plaintiffs: Some Issues Remain Unresolved

The lead plaintiffs in the consolidated securities class action
entitled In re Delphi Corp. Securities Litigation, Master Case
No. 05-md-1725 (GER) (E.D.Mich.), which previously agreed to,
among other things, a $204 million general unsecured claim to
settle its lawsuit against the Debtors, say that they are still
discussing with the Debtors their concerns based upon the
current versions of, and the proposed revisions to, the Plan and
Disclosure Statement.

The Debtors on Oct. 29, 2007, said they will modify the Plan
currency that will be utilized to satisfy Lead Plaintiffs'
$204 million allowed claim.  Under the revised Plan, this claim,
upon the required final approval by the Bankruptcy Court and the
U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Michigan, will
now be satisfied with shares of New Common Stock of reorganized
Delphi and rights to participate in a Discount Rights Offering.

Michael S. Etkin, Esq., at Lowenstein Sandler PC, in New York,
relates that the current versions of the Disclosure Statement
and Plan address many of Lead Plaintiffs' concerns, but not all
of them.

The Debtors previously agreed to make several revisions to
insure consistency between the Disclosure Statement and Plan and
the Stipulation of Settlement resolving the Securities
Litigation.

The parties have not yet been able to reach agreement on two of
Lead Plaintiffs' proposed revisions to the Disclosure Statement
and Plan involving third party releases and certain conditions
to the effectiveness of the Plan.

To the extent the Lead Plaintiffs' outstanding concerns with the
Disclosure Statement are not resolved on or prior to the hearing
on Nov. 8, 2007 or any adjourned date, the Lead Plaintiffs
reserve the right to raise any and all remaining objections to
the Disclosure Statement at the hearing.

REALOGY CORP: Highly Leveraged Capital Cues S&P to Cut Rating
-------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered Realogy Corp.'s
corporate credit rating to 'B' from 'B+'.  The rating outlook is
stable.

"The downgrade reflects our expectation that the company will
experience lower than previously expected cash flow generation
and weakening credit measures over the intermediate term
resulting from a lengthening downturn in the U.S. residential
real estate market," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Emile
Courtney.

S&P expect Realogy to have about US$6.3 billion in funded debt
and US$7.7 billion in lease-adjusted debt, including borrowings
related to accounts receivable securitizations, at the end of
2007.  While there is nothing stable about current transaction
and pricing trends in the U.S. residential real estate market,
S&P believe Realogy has available liquidity sources adequate to
withstand the current downturn in the cycle.  As a result, S&P
are unlikely to lower the rating further over the intermediate
term.

The 'B' rating reflects Realogy's highly leveraged capital
structure, thin expected EBITDA coverage of interest expense,
and reduced cash flow generating ability as a result of the
residential real estate downturn and the close of the US$9
billion LBO of the company by Apollo Management L.P. in April
2007.

Headquartered in Parsippany, N.J., Realogy Corporation
(NYSE: H)-- http://www.realogy.com/-- is real estate franchisor

business model that also includes real estate brokerage,

WATERFORD WEDGWOOD: Mulls Transferring Crystal Unit to Slovenia
---------------------------------------------------------------
Waterford Wedgwood Plc may transfer its crystal division to
Rogaska Slatina, Slovenia, and cut its workforce by around 400
employees, Shawn Pogatchnik writes for the Associated Press,
citing Amalgamated Transport and General Workers Union
officials.

The union claims that Waterford is holding talks with Slovenian
glassmaker Steklarna Rogaska to shift more production lines to
the Central European country, where production costs are lower,
AP relates.

Waterford is already manufacturing Marquis, one of its hand-cut
crystal brands, in Rogaska Slatina, AP notes.

The union fears that Waterford's plant may become a tourist
attraction rather than a serious manufacturing site, AP adds.

Waterford Wedgwood, however, refused to comment on the union's
claims, saying talks on improving the site's cost-effectivity
had just begun and would take days to conclude.

The company has shifted most of its production to Brazil and
Indonesia.

As reported in the TCR-Europe on Oct. 19, 2007, Waterford is in
final talks to place EUR50 million of preference shares with a
major international institutional investor.  Sir Anthony
O'Reilly, chairman, and Peter John Goulandris, deputy chairman,
have also applied for a further EUR17 million of preference
shares, subject to the expiration of the closed period, and that
the company is confident of placing a further EUR33 million with
investors.

Headquartered in Waterford, Ireland, Waterford Wedgwood plc
-- http://www.waterfordwedgwood.com/-- manufactures premium-
priced goods including crystal, ceramics and cookware.  The
company has leading positions in its key markets in the US,
Europe and Japan.

                          *    *    *

Waterford Wedgwood's 9-7/8% notes due 2010 carry junk ratings
from Moody's Investors' Service's (Caa2), Standard & Poor's
(CCC-), and Fitch Ratings (CC).  These ratings apply to date.

---------------------------------------------------------------

PARMALAT SPA: Parma Prosecutors Can Prove BofA Link, Report Says
----------------------------------------------------------------
Prosecutors at Parma, Italy said they can prove a link between
former Parmalat S.p.A. chief financial officer Fausto Tonna and
former Bank of America Corp. Italian chief Luca Sala, Reuters
reports citing chief prosecutor Gerardo La Guardia.

Mr. La Guardia told Reuters that magistrates have evidence of
bank transfers by Mr. Tonna to Mr. Sala via a Swiss bank
account.

Prosecutors believe that some of BofA's executives were aware of
Parmalat's financial condition before it collapsed in December
2003 under a EUR14 billion debt, Mr. La Guardia added to
Reuters.  Prosecutors also believe that the bank's management
benefited from the transfers.

The chief prosecutor added that the magistrates are continuing
their investigations.

                           Denial

Mr. Tonna denied any collusion with Mr. Sala, saying that he
"never ordered payments of such nature," Reuters relates.

were aware of the fraud at Parmalat," a bank spokesperson was
quoted by Reuters.

PDM CLO I: Moody's Rates EUR13.5 Mln Class E Notes at (P)Ba3
------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned long term credit ratings to 5
classes of notes issued by PDM CLO I B.V., a Dutch special
purpose company.  The ratings are:

   -- (P)Aaa to the EUR208,500,000 Class A Senior Secured
      Floating Rate Notes due 2024

   -- (P)Aa2 to the EUR11,250,000 Class B Deferrable Secured
      Floating Rate Notes due 2024

   -- (P)A2 to the EUR17,250,000 Class C Deferrable Secured
      Floating Rate Notes due 2024

   -- (P)Baa3 to the EUR16,500,000 Class D Deferrable Secured
      Floating Rate Notes due 2024

   -- (P)Ba3 to the EUR13,500,000 Class E Deferrable Secured
      Floating Rate Notes due 2024

The provisional ratings of the Notes address the expected loss
posed to investors by the legal maturity of each class (in
2024).

These provisional ratings are based upon:

   1. An assessment of the eligibility criteria and portfolio
      guidelines applicable to the future additions 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 Permira Debt Managers Group Holding
      Limited, as investment manager, and Permira Debt Managers
      Limited as investment sub-manager; and

   6. The legal and structural integrity of the issue.

This transaction is a high yield collateralized loan obligation
related to a collateral portfolio of approximately EUR300
million, comprised primarily of European senior, second lien and
mezzanine loans, high yield bonds and structured finance
securities.  This portfolio is dynamically managed by the
investment manager and the investment sub-manager.  This
portfolio will be partially acquired at the closing date and
during the six months ramp-up period in compliance with
portfolio guidelines which include, among other tests, 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 investment 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.

Moody's issues provisional ratings in advance of the final sale
of securities and these ratings reflect Moody's preliminary
credit opinion regarding the transaction.  Upon a conclusive
review of the final versions of all the documents and legal
opinions, Moody's will endeavor to assign definitive ratings to
the transaction.  A definitive rating may differ from a
provisional rating.

DRESSER-RAND GROUP: Inks US$100 Mln Alliance Pact with Repsol
-------------------------------------------------------------
Dresser-Rand Group Inc. has signed an alliance agreement with
Repsol YPF.  The agreement covers sales of all Dresser-Rand
products and services.  Dresser-Rand estimates the value of the
alliance agreement to be approximately US$100 million for
products and services over the next two years.

One steam turbine project for the Tarragona (Spain) refinery
valued at approximately US$13 million was secured in August
2007.  Subsequently, in the month of October, two projects for
the Petronor Refinery (Bilbao, Spain) have been awarded with a
total value of approximately US$20 million.  Dresser-Rand will
supply one process reciprocating compressor, one DATUM
centrifugal compressor and associated services.

"We're appreciative of the confidence that Repsol has placed in
Dresser- Rand," Vincent R. Volpe, Jr., president and Chief
Executive Officer of Dresser-Rand, said.  "As a new alliance
partner, we look forward to working with Repsol to provide
value-adding solutions through lowest life cycle cost for new
equipment and minimal emissions.  We're also pleased to supply
equipment to the planned refinery expansions reflecting the
continued strength of this market segment, particularly as it
relates to expansion in the European market."

Repsol-YPF's decision to enter into an alliance with Dresser-
Rand was primarily based on the company's technical capability
as well as its proposal to reduce Repsol's total cost of
ownership of their assets.  Repsol-YPF will be able to realize
considerable saving by not utilizing an EPC contractor for the
final design stages and procurement (after FEED) based on
Dresser-Rand's proprietary Corporate Product Configurator and
its Price Book e-tools.

TATNEFT: Eyes Oil Supply Stoppage at Seized Ukrainian Refinery
--------------------------------------------------------------
OAO Tatneft has asked local oil exporters to stop sending
supplies to its Ukrainian refinery taken over by its former
chief executive, Greg Walters writes for Bloomberg News.

Nail Maganov, Tatneft's deputy CEO and head of oil sales, told
Bloomberg News that a a private security service seized control
of the plant on Oct. 19 and reinstalled ex-CEO Pavel Ovcharenko
to run the site.

"We must all unite against these raiders or they will throw us
out of our homes," Mr. Maganov was quoted by Bloomberg News as
saying.

Mr. Maganov said the site is losing US$4 million-US$5 million
daily following the takeover due to low refining volumes and cut
supplies.

The deputy CEO also ruled out the possibility that the Ukrainian
government, which has been trying to reacquire shares from
Tatneft, supported the armed seizure.

"If this was the state, they wouldn't do it like this," Mr.
Maganov told Bloomberg News.  "They wouldn't use these illegal
measures.  There is a third party here that can ignore the
orders of the government and the decisions of the court."

Mr. Maganov noted that Ukraine's Justice Ministry and general
prosecutor has expressed support to Tatneft.

CHEYNE FINANCE: Managers Get GBP101 Mln Payout Prior to Collapse
----------------------------------------------------------------
Cheyne Capital Management has made a total payout of GBP101
million to its hedge fund managers, eight months prior to the
collapse of Cheyne Finance plc, a structured investment vehicle
which it manages, the Daily Telegraph reports, citing accounts
filed at Companies House.

It is speculated that the payout went to the much smaller number
of hedge fund managers, including founders Jonathan Lourie and
Stuart Fiertz, James Quinn Wall writes for the Daily Telegraph.

According to the accounts filed at Companies House, Cheyne
Capital, which employs more than 150 people, used a Bermudan
offshoot called Cheyne Global Services to pay its staff.

The accounts also revealed that Cheyne Capital's fee income
increased by 46.5% to GBP129 million in the said period, the
Daily Telegraph relates.

However, a spokeswoman for the London-based hedge fund declined
to comment on the issue.

                       Insolvency Event

On Oct. 17, 2007, the receivers of Cheyne Finance determined
that the structured investment vehicle is, or is about to
become, unable to pay its debts as they fall due to "Senior
Creditors" and any other persons whose claims against it are
required to be paid in priority thereto, as  contemplated by
Section 123(1) of the United Kingdom Insolvency Act 1986.

Accordingly, the receivers have notified The Bank of New York,
as Security Trustee, that an "Insolvency Event" has occurred.

                       Enforcement Event

On Sept. 4, 2007, receivers have been appointed to Cheyne
Finance.  The appointment of a receiver is required under the
terms of the company's Security Trust Deed following the
occurrence of an Enforcement Event.  The appointment has been
duly made by The Bank of New York as Security Trustee.

On Aug. 28, 2007, mark-to-market losses in the Investment
Portfolio of Cheyne Finance have caused a breach of the Major
Capital Loss Test and therefore triggered an Enforcement Event.

Cheyne Finance plc is a structured investment vehicle managed by
Cheyne Capital Management Ltd.


ENRON CORP: Standard Chartered Wants Additional US$2.7 Million
--------------------------------------------------------------
Standard Chartered Bank asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of New York to compel Enron Creditors Recovery
Corp., formerly known as Enron Corp., to pay US$2.7 million to
cover the bank's claims against Enron North America Corp., Enron
Power Marketing Inc., and EPC Estate Services Inc., the
Associated Press reports.

The AP adds that the amount is on top of the US$24.5 million the
bank received as part of a 2005 settlement with Enron.  The bank
claims that the settlement agreement didn't cover the claims it
had against the three Enron entities that borrowed money.

Based in Houston, Texas, Enron Corporation filed for chapter 11
protection on Dec. 2, 2001 (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 01-16033)
following controversy over accounting procedures, which caused
Enron's stock price and credit rating to drop sharply.  Judge
Gonzalez confirmed the Company's Modified Fifth Amended Plan on
July 15, 2004, and numerous appeals followed.  The Debtors'
confirmed chapter 11 Plan took effect on Nov. 17, 2004.

Albert Togut, Esq., at Togut Segal & Segal LLP, Brian S. Rosen,
Esq., Martin Soslan, Esq., Melanie Gray, Esq., Michael P.
Kessler, Esq., Sylvia Ann Mayer, Esq., at Weil, Gotshal & Manges
LLP, Frederick W.H. Carter, Esq., Michael Schatzow, Esq., Robert

Esq., Matthew Scott Barr, Esq., and Paul D. Malek, Esq., at
Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy LLP represents the Official
Committee of Unsecured Creditors.

The Debtors filed their Chapter Plan and Disclosure Statement on
July 11, 2003.  On Jan. 9, 2004, they filed their fifth Amended
Plan and on the same day the Court approved the adequacy of the
Disclosure Statement.  On July 15, 2004, the Court confirmed the
Debtors' Modified Fifth Amended Plan and that plan was declared
effective on Nov. 17, 2004.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on July 30, 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.

In June 2007, S&P raised the Issue Rating on Ford's senior
secured credit facilities to B+ from B.


FORD MOTOR: Reaches Tentative National Labor Agreement with UAW
---------------------------------------------------------------
Ford Motor Company and the United Auto Workers union have
reached a tentative agreement on a four-year national labor
contract covering approximately 54,000 represented employees in
the United States, according to Joe Laymon, group vice
president, Human Resources and Labor Affairs, Ford Motor
Company.

"I’d like to take this opportunity to thank UAW President Ron
Gettelfinger, UAW Vice President Bob King and the entire UAW
national bargaining committee for all of their hard work and
professionalism over the past several months," Mr. Laymon said.
"I would also like to thank the Ford bargaining team for its
skill and dedication during this complex and challenging set of
negotiations."

The agreement is subject to ratification by UAW members.  It
includes a memorandum of understanding to establish an
independent retiree health care trust.  Following ratification,
implementation of the memorandum of understanding is subject to
approval by the courts and satisfactory review of accounting
treatment with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

Though the parties will not discuss the specifics of the
tentative agreement until after it becomes final, Ford believes
it is fair to its employees and retirees, and paves the way for
Ford to increase its competitiveness in the United States.

United Auto Workers union members at Ford Motor Company plants,
including those in Missouri and Louisville, Kentucky, will be
voting on a new labor agreement between the carmaker and the
union on Sunday, Nov. 11, 2007, according to various reports.

The St. Louis Business Journal relates that voting will conclude
on Nov. 12, 2007.

POPE & TALBOT: Superior Court OKs Closure of Business Operations
----------------------------------------------------------------
Pope & Talbot and its debtor-affiliates obtained permission from
the Superior Court of Justice (Commercial List) for the Province
of Ontario, in Canada to permanently or temporarily cease,
downsize or shut down any of their businesses or operations,
subject to the written concurrence of PricewaterhouseCoopers
Inc., as monitor.

Over the last few months, Pope & Talbot Ltd. has shutdown
certain of its mills to reduce costs.  The company is presently
exploring restructuring alternatives, including the possible
sale of one or both of its businesses.  In June 2007, Pope &
Talbot retained Rothschild Inc. to assist it in identifying and
implementing  restructuring alternatives.

Following its Forbearance Agreement with prepetition secured
lenders in August 2007, Pope & Talbot publicly launched a
further sale process seeking bids for either all or
substantially all of its businesses, or all or substantially all
of either of its two principal business lines.  Pope & Talbot
received binding offers during the week of Oct. 8, 2007, from
which it expects to pursue one or more transactions during the
course of the CCAA proceedings.

Pope & Talbot expects to return to the CCAA Court within a few
days to seek approval of a purchase agreement for a substantial
portion of its business, R. Neil Stuart, Pope & Talbot's vice
president and chief financial officer, said in an affidavit
filed with the CCAA Court.

The sale, if consummated, would repay a substantial portion of
the outstanding indebtedness under the company's Credit
Facility, Mr. Stuart said.

It is expected that the proposed purchase agreement would serve
as a "stalking horse" for a short Court-supervised auction
process, Mr. Stuart said.

The Honorable Justice Geoffrey B. Morawetz also allowed the
Applicants to:

   (a) dispose of redundant or non-material assets not exceeding
       US$750,000 in any one transaction or US$5,000,000 in the
       aggregate; and

   (b) real property not exceeding US$1,500,000 in any one
       transaction or US$10,000,000 in the aggregate, with the
       consent of Wells Fargo Financial Corporation Canada and
       Ableco Financial LLC, the Applicants' prepetition secured
       lenders.

Pope & Talbot is in the process of selling surplus lands in
British Columbia, Canada, to various purchasers.  The sale
transactions that have closed or are in the process of being
finalized are:

   1. Sale of "Blanket Creek", "Beaton Complex", "Beaton
      Schedule A", "Galena Bay Thumb", "Arrowhead (Henry's
      Creek)", "Galena Bay", "Arrow Park (Hampton)", "Taite
      Creek", "Tuzo Junction" and "Kettle River Park North"
      lands to Chou Associates Management Inc. The contract was
      signed on October 26, 2007, for a purchase price of
      US$4,800,000;

   2. Sale of "Beaverdell South" lands for a purchase price of
      US$550,000.  The contract was signed October 22, 2007, and
      was scheduled to close on October 30, 2007;

   3. Sale of "Shelter Bay" lands to Ilkay Development
      Corporation.  The contract has not yet been signed.  The
      purchase price is US$11,300,000;

      The contract has not yet been signed;

   5. Sale of "Shields Creek" lands for a purchase price of

      though the draft contract currently provides for a
      scheduled closing of November 23, 2007;

   6. Sale of "Deer Park" lands for a purchase price of
      US$751,000.  The contract has not yet been signed, though
      the draft contract currently provides for a scheduled
      closing of November 25, 2007;

   7. Sale of "Saunier Lake" lands for a purchase price of
      US$275,000.  The contract has not yet been signed, though

POPE & TALBOT: May Reject Leases Subject to 7 Days Notice
---------------------------------------------------------
The Honorable Justice Geoffrey B. Morawetz has permitted Pope &
Talbot Ltd. and its debtor-affiliates to vacate, abandon or quit
any leased premises or repudiate any real property lease and any
ancillary agreements relating to any leased premises, on not
less than seven days' notice to the relevant landlord.

The Applicants may also terminate the employment of their
employees or temporarily lay off employees as the Applicants
deem appropriate.

Pope & Talbot Ltd. has shutdown certain of its mills over the
last few months to reduce costs and reduced production at other
mills.

In an affidavit filed with the CCAA Court, R. Neil Stuart, Pope
& Talbot's vice president and chief financial officer, said the
shutdown was necessary due to the falling prices of softwood
lumber products brought on by the downturn in the U.S. housing
market.  Mr. Stuart said it was not profitable for the
Applicants to run at normal capacity in the circumstances.

Mr. Justice Morawetz held that until the time as an Applicant
repudiates a real property lease, the Applicants will pay all
amounts constituting rent or payable as rent under real property
leases -- including common area maintenance charges, utilities
and realty taxes and any other amounts payable to the landlord
under the lease -- or as otherwise may be negotiated by the
Applicants from time to time, commencing October 29, 2007, bi-
weekly, in advance but not in arrears.

Mr. Justice Morawetz directed the Applicants to provide each of
the relevant landlords with notice of the relevant Applicant's
intention to remove any fixtures from any leased premises at
least seven days prior to the date of the intended removal.

The relevant landlord will be entitled to have a representative
present in the leased premises to observe the removal and, if
the landlord disputes the Applicant's entitlement to remove any
fixture under the provisions of the lease, the fixture will
remain on the premises and will be dealt with as agreed between
any applicable secured creditors, the landlord and the relevant
Applicant, or by further Court order.

If an Applicant repudiates the lease governing the leased
premises, the Applicant will not be required to pay Rent under
the lease pending resolution of any dispute, and the repudiation
of the lease will be without prejudice to the Applicant's claims
to the fixtures in dispute.

If a lease is repudiated by an Applicant, then during the notice
period prior to the effective time of the repudiation, the
landlord may show the affected leased premises to prospective
tenants during normal business hours, on giving the Applicant
and PricewaterhouseCoopers Inc. 24 hours' prior written notice.

Mr. Justice Morawetz also held that at the effective time of the
repudiation, the landlord will be entitled to take possession of
the leased premises without waiver of or prejudice to any claims
or rights the landlord may have against the Applicant in respect
of the lease or leased premises.  The landlord will be entitled
to notify the Applicant of the basis on which it is taking
possession and to gain possession of and re-lease the leased
premises to any third party or parties on terms as the landlord
considers advisable.  Nothing, however, will relieve the
landlord of its obligation to mitigate any asserted damages, Mr.
Justice Morawetz said.

The Applicants are permitted to dispose of any or all of the
property located or formerly located at the leased premises
without any interference of any kind from landlords
notwithstanding the terms of any leases, Mr. Justice Morawetz
ruled.  The Applicants, Mr. Justice Morawetz added, will have
the right to realize upon the Property and other assets in the
manner and at locations, including leased premises, as it deems
suitable or desirable for the purpose of maximizing the proceeds
and recovery therefrom.

NORTHERN ROCK: Total Bank of England Debt Hits GBP23 Billion
------------------------------------------------------------
Northern Rock Plc borrowed another GBP2 billion from the Bank of
England last week, bringing the total amount drawn down from the
funding assistance offered by the BoE to GBP23 billion, reports
say.

At the same time, speculations have emerged that the tally will
reach GBP20 billion before an acquisition is completed, the
Scotsman reports.

Concurrently, Northern Rock savers have withdrawn a total of
GBP14 billion since the Bank of England allocated emergency
funding to bail out the mortgage lender, the Sunday Times
relates, without naming its source.

Northern Rock was quick to debunk the GBP14 billion withdrawal
by its clients, detailed in the Sunday Times story, with a
spokesman claiming, "it's not a figure we recognize."  However,
he declined to give a figure for the amount of money savers have
removed from the bank since the crisis began seven weeks ago,
the Telegraph notes.

Private equity firms JC Flowers and Cerberus, as well as Sir
Richard Branson's Virgin Group, are conducting due diligence,
the Telegraph says.  Private equity groups and banks from
Britain, Europe, China and India, as well as building societies
were also named as potential bidders.

Blackstone Group LP has sent a detailed memorandum to as many as
50 interested parties in its role as an adviser in the potential
sale of Northern Rock, the Sunday Times reveals.

The bank has indicated it may consider a break up of its assets
in a bid to attract a fresh round of potential bidders, the
Scotsman states.

RANK GROUP: Inks International Sportsbook Deal with 888 Holdings
----------------------------------------------------------------
Rank Group plc has entered into an agreement to provide a "white
label" sports betting service to online gaming company, 888
Holdings plc.  The non-exclusive agreement forms part of Rank's
strategy to penetrate selective international gambling markets
through its on-line business, Blue Square.

Under the terms of the agreement, Blue Square will supply a
multi-lingual betting service to 888, enabling their customers
to place sports bets from the 888.com Web sites.  Revenues from
sports betting will be shared between Rank and 888.

"This is an agreement that strengthens both parties.  We will
benefit from 888's international experience and liquidity as we
extend our reach beyond the U.K.; and 888 will complete their
customer offer by adding Blue Square's innovative range of
betting products," Martin Belsham, managing director of Blue
Square, said.

"The deal will enable 888 to capitalize on our extensive global
customer base and grow in new territories.  Our analysis shows
that a significant proportion of our players bet on sport
events occasionally, and the inclusion of sports betting in our
offering is in-line with our focus to aid customer acquisition
and reinforce 888 as the entertainment destination of choice.
888 will work closely with Blue Square to present a compelling
localized sportsbook offering tailored for each country," Gabi
Campos, senior VP, head of offering for 888, said.

The new service is scheduled to be available to 888 customers
during the first quarter of 2008.  While the agreement
constitutes an important stage in the development of Blue
Square, Rank does not expect that it will have a material
affect on group earnings in 2008.

Headquartered in London, United Kingdom, Rank Group PLC --

entertainment company.  The Group provides services to the film

stable.  At the same time, the 'BB-' long-term and 'B' short-
term corporate credit ratings were affirmed.


SKYEPHARMA PLC: Completes Flutiform(tm) Phase III Safety Study
------------------------------------------------------------
SkyePharma plc has completed the the Phase III, long-term, open
label, safety study for Flutiform(tm), its lead development
product for the treatment of asthma.

The results are consistent with the large safety database
already accumulated on the individual constituents fluticasone
and formoterol.

The study involved 472 patients who were treated with
Flutiform(tm) for 6 or 12 months and will form part of the U.S.
New Drug Application for Flutiform(tm).  Three double-blind
efficacy trials are currently ongoing, of which one is fully
enrolled and the other two are nearing full enrolment.
Submission of the NDA is expected in the second half of 2008.

"The results of this study are as we expected and represent a
significant milestone achieved in the Flutiform(tm) development
program.  We continue to make good progress towards the approval
of this exciting product," Frank Condella, CEO of SkyePharma,
said.

Headquartered in London, SkyePharma PLC (Nasdaq: SKYE; LSE: SKP)

charges and tax for the six months ended June 30, 2007, was a
loss of GBP14.2 million (H1 2006: GBP16 million).

The Group balance sheet as at June 30, 2007, shows GBP55.1
million in total shareholders' deficit, compared with a GBP48.4
million stockholders' deficit at Dec. 31, 2006.  The reduction
in net equity has arisen mainly due to the GBP19.6 million loss
from continuing and discontinued operations.

----------------------------------------------------------------
Viragen (Scotland) Ltd., the Scottish unit of Viragen
International Inc., filed a winding-up petition at the Courts in
Glasgow, under Section 135 of the Insolvency Act (Scotland) 1986
on Oct. 16, 2007, which left nine workers jobless.

Subsequently, Graham Martin of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP was
appointed provisional liquidator after the company's US parent,
Viragen Inc., went insolvent, the Scotsman relates.

"The company was carrying out research and development of a
number of anti-cancer, anti-viral and anti-bacterial products
and technologies which we are hopeful will be of interest to a
number of parties," Mr. Martin was quoted by the Scotsman as
saying.

                       Going Concern Doubt

Ernst & Young LLP, raised substantial doubt about Viragen
International, Inc.'s ability to continue as a going concern
after auditing the company's consolidated financial statements
for the fiscal years ending June 30, 2006 and 2005.  The
auditing firm pointed to the company's recurring operating
losses and accumulated deficit and stockholders' deficit as of
June 30, 2006, as well as the company's ability to raise
adequate capital to fund necessary product commercialization and
development activities.

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-
