POPE & TALBOT: PwC Suggests Extension of Stay Period to Jan. 15
---------------------------------------------------------------
PricewaterhouseCoopers Inc., the court-appointed Monitor in Pope
& Talbot Inc. and its debtor-affiliates' CCAA proceedings, has
recommended to the Superior Court of Justice (Commercial List)
for the Province of Ontario, in Canada, that the Applicants'
request for an extension of the stay period to Jan. 15, 2008, be
granted.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Nov. 5, 2007,
the Hon. Justice Geoffrey B. Morawetz held that until and
including Nov. 23, 2007, no proceeding or enforcement process in
any court or tribunal will be commenced or continued against or
in respect of the Applicants, the Partnerships or
PricewaterhouseCoopers Inc., the court-appointed Monitor, or
affecting the Applicants' business or property except with the
written consent of the Applicants, the Partnerships and the
Monitor, or with leave of the CCAA Court.

The Monitor has asserted in its second report to Mr. Justice
Morawetz dated Nov. 20, 2007, that the Applicants require
additional time to determine and implement the appropriate next
steps toward their restructuring.

"An extension of the stay period is needed to provide the
stability required during that time," the Monitor said.

The Monitor believes that, based on information currently
available, creditors would not be materially prejudiced by an
extension of the stay period to Jan. 15, 2008.

"The Applicants have acted and are acting in good faith and with
due diligence and that circumstances exist that make an
extension of the stay period appropriate," the Monitor
maintained.

Headquartered in Portland, Oregon, Pope & Talbot Inc. (Other
OTC: PTBT.PK) -- http://www.poptal.com/-- is a pulp and wood
products business.  Pope & Talbot was founded in 1849 and
produces market pulp and softwood lumber at mills in the US and
Canada.  Markets for the company's products include the US,
United Kingdom, Canada, South America and the Pacific Rim.

The company and its U.S. and Canadian subsidiaries applied for
protection under the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act of
Canada on Oct. 28, 2007.  The Debtors' initial CCAA Stay expires
on Nov. 23, 2007.

The company and fourteen of its debtor-affiliates filed for
Chapter 11 protection on Nov. 19, 2007 (Bankr. D. Del. Lead Case
No. 07-11738).  Laura Davis Jones, Esq. at Pachulski Ziehl &
Jones L.L.P. is Debtors' proposed bankruptcy counsel.  When the
Debtors filed for bankruptcy, they listed total assets of
US$681,960,000 and total debts of US$601,090,000.

The Debtors' exclusive period to file a plan expires on
March 18, 2008.

Pope & Talbot Pulp Sales Europe, LLC, a subsidiary, on
Nov. 21, 2007, filed an application for relief under Belgian
bankruptcy laws in the commercial court in Brussels.  If the
Belgian court grants Pope & Talbot Europe's application, it is
expected it will be liquidated through the bankruptcy
proceeding.  (Pope & Talbot Bankruptcy News, Issue No. 5;

POPE & TALBOT: Obtains Interim Authority to Borrow Up to US$68MM
----------------------------------------------------------------
The United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware
has granted Pope & Talbot Inc. and its debtor-affiliates
authority, on an interim basis, to borrow up to US$68,000,000
from Wells Fargo, Ableco Finance, and other DIP lenders.

The Debtors related that their inability to obtain sufficient
liquidity and to make critical payments on certain obligations
on a timely basis would result in a permanent and irreplaceable
value to the detriment of their estates.  Thus, the Debtors
determined that they would require debtor-in-possession
financing to meet their ongoing liability needs.

After review and deliberation and in accordance with the advice
of Rothschild Inc., the Debtors entered into a DIP Loan
Agreement dated Nov. 19, 2007, with Wells Fargo Financial
Corporation Canada, as administrative agent, Ableco Finance LLC,
as collateral agent; and certain other lenders.

The DIP facility is comprised of:

   (1) a revolving credit facility of up to US$71,062,301, and

   (2) a multi-draw term loan B credit facility of up to
       US$18,000,000.

The DIP facility also includes a US$17,062,301 subfacility for
the issuance of letters of credit.

The DIP Loan Agreement is principally designed as a mechanism to
achieve the sales of substantially all of the Debtors' ongoing
business, Laura Davis Jones, Esq., at Pachulski Stang Ziehl &
Jones LLP, in Wilmington, Delaware, says.  The DIP Loan
Agreement contemplates that the proposed sales will be completed
prior to Feb. 15, 2008.

                          Loan Proceeds

Available financing and advances under the DIP Loan Agreement
will be made to fund the Debtors' working capital and general
corporate needs, including professional fees as approved by the
Court, the Court ruled.

Upon final approval of the DIP facility, proceeds of the DIP
loans will also be used to:

   -- repay all prepetition revolver obligations in full;

   -- pay all accrued and unpaid interest and letter of credit
      fees in respect of the DIP loans; and

   -- pay fees and expenses of the DIP lenders in respect of the
      DIP Loan Agreement and prepetition loan facilities.

The DIP lenders are granted superpriority administrative expense
status pursuant to Section 364(c)(1) of the Bankruptcy Code.

As security for the DIP obligations, the DIP lenders are
granted, subject and subordinate in priority of payment only to
the carve-out and the permitted priority liens:

   -- first priority, perfected security interests and liens, in
      and on all postpetition collateral,

   -- first priority, perfected security interests in and liens
      on all of the Debtors' currently owned and after acquired
      unencumbered property, and

   -- solely with respect to the term loan priority collateral,
      junior priority, perfected security interests in and liens
      on all of the Debtors' property.

                          Interest Rate

The revolver loans are subject to a 5% Eurodollar loan interest
and a 4% base rate loan interest.

The term loans are subject to a 9.75% Eurodollar loan interest
and a 8.75% base rate loan interest.

Upon an event of default, the loans are subject to default
interest at a rate of 2% in excess of the rate of interest
otherwise in effect.

                          Maturity Date

The DIP facility will terminate on the earlier of:

   (i) Feb. 15, 2008;

  (ii) the date of both (x) the effective date and substantial
       consummation of a chapter 11 plan of reorganization and
       (y) the effective date and implementation of a plan of
       compromise or arrangement in the CCAA proceedings;

(iii) 30 days after the entry of the applicable interim
       bankruptcy court order if the applicable final bankruptcy
       court order has not been entered by the U.S. Bankruptcy
       Court and if the Canadian DIP order has not been made by
       the Canadian bankruptcy court, in each case, on or prior
       to that date;

  (iv) the date on which the stay of the CCAA proceedings
       expires;

   (v) the date of the closing of a sale of all or substantially
       all of the the Debtors' assets pursuant to Section 363 of
       the Bankruptcy Code and the CCAA;

  (vi) an earlier date on which all DIP loans and other
       extensions of credit will become due and payable in
       accordance with the terms of DIP Loan Agreement and other
       DIP loan documents.

                            Carve Out

The DIP Loan Agreement contains a "carve-out" for the payment of
certain professional fees and the U.S. Trustee fees.  The scope
of the carve-out in the DIP Loan Agreement also provides carve-
outs for (i) the Debtors' operating expenses incurred pursuant
to the budget as of the acceleration date or the final maturity
date, (ii) accrued payroll and related expenses for the two-week
period immediately preceding any such date, and (iii) the
"Directors' Charge" provided in the CCAA initial order.

                              Fees

The Debtors will pay for the account of each revolving credit
lender, a commitment fee for the period from and including the
date of the DIP Loan Agreement to the last day of the revolving
credit commitment period.  The commitment fee is computed at the
commitment fee rate of 0.5% per annum on the average daily
amount of the available revolving credit commitment.

The Debtors will pay the lenders a non-refundable US$600,000 fee
at the closing of the DIP facility.

                         Other Provisions

The DIP facility also provides for mandatory prepayment
provisions, and customary events of default.

Until all fees and all other DIP obligations have been paid in
full, it will deemed an event of default under the DIP loan
documents if the Debtors fail to:

   A. In the case of the Debtors' wood products business:

      * obtain by Nov. 30, 2007, Court approval of procedures
        for sale of substantially all of the wood business
        assets;

      * conduct, on or before Dec. 20, 2007, one or more
        auctions for the sale of substantially all of the wood
        business assets;

      * obtain, on or before Jan. 8, 2008, Court approval of
        the sale of substantially all of the wood business
        assets; and

      * consummate no later than Jan. 31, 2008, one or more
        sale of substantially all of the wood business assets.

   B. In the case of the Debtors' pulp business

      * obtain by Dec. 7, 2007, Court approval of procedures
        for sale of substantially all of the pulp business
        assets;

      * conduct, on or before Jan. 22, 2008, one or more
        auctions for the sale of substantially all of the pulp
        business assets;

      * obtain, on or before Jan. 28, 2008, Court approval of
        the sale of substantially all of the pulp business
        assets; and

      * consummate no later than the final maturity date of the
        DIP loans, one or more sale of substantially all of the
        wood business assets.

A full-text copy of the DIP Loan Agreement is available for free
at http://researcharchives.com/t/s?25b7

The DIP motion is subject to approval of the Bankruptcy Court
and the CCAA Court.

                        Monitor's Comments

PricewaterhouseCoopers Inc., as monitor in the proceedings
commenced by the Debtors under the Companies' Creditors
Arrangement Act of Canada, says that while it has not been
involved in the negotiation of the DIP Loan Agreement, it
understands that the loan agreement represents the only
additional financing currently available to them.

Accordingly, the Monitor supports the Debtors' entering into the
DIP Loan Agreement.

The DIP Loan Agreement though, the Monitor points out, provides
significant restrictions and limitations on the Debtors' ability
to operate their businesses as well as restrictions on the
Debtors' restructuring alternatives, which include a compulsory
sale process and timeline.

"It is possible that the [Debtors] could be in default of its
obligations prior to the final maturity date, and the DIP lender
could exercise its enforcement rights and remedies under the DIP
Loan Agreement," Greg Watson, president of PwC, says.

According to the Monitor, it has informed the Debtors and the
DIP lenders of its preliminary observations with respect to the
timing of the sales process and the need to ensure that there is
sufficient time and ability for potential purchasers to fully
consider and participate in the sales process.  The Monitor
maintains that it intends to discuss the sales procedure and
timelines with the Debtors and the DIP lenders.

The Monitor adds that its counsel has completed a preliminary
review of the security granted by the Debtors to the lenders
under the DIP Lredit Agreement.  The Monitor's counsel has
concluded that the lenders' security are valid and enforceable
in accordance with their terms and perfected in registration in
Ontario.  The counsel is awaiting results necessary to confirm
similar conclusions with respect to British Columbia.

Pope & Talbot Pulp Sales Europe, LLC, a subsidiary, on

Belgian court grants Pope & Talbot Europe's application, it is

http://bankrupt.com/newsstand/or 215/945-7000).



POPE & TALBOT: Obtains Interim Nod to Use of Cash Collateral
------------------------------------------------------------
The United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware
has granted Pope & Talbot Inc. and its debtor-affiliates,
authority, on an interim basis, to use the lenders' cash
collateral in the Debtors' existing bank operating accounts in
an amount not to exceed US$14,800,000.

Prior to the bankruptcy filing, the Debtors borrowed money from
Wells Fargo Financial Corporation Canada, as administrative
agent;
Ableco Finance LLC, as term loan B agent and collateral agent;
and certain other lenders pursuant to a credit agreement dated
June 2006, as subsequently amended.  The prepetition credit
agreement provided for:

   * a term loan B facility of US$130.5 million,
   * a term loan C facility of US$119.5 million, and
   * a revolving credit facility of up to US$75 million.

The Debtors other than Pope & Talbot Ltd. guaranteed P&T Ltd.'s
obligations under the prepetition credit agreement.  P&T Ltd.'s
prepetition obligations and the Debtor guarantors' obligations
are secured by substantially all of the Debtors' assets.

As of Oct. 29, 2007, the Debtors' prepetition obligations that
remained outstanding are:

                                              Aggregate
     Category                                Principal Amt.
     --------                                --------------
     Prepetition revolving loan obligations    US$37,196,614
     Prepetition term loan obligations        US$185,440,383
     Prepetition letters of credit             US$17,155,183
     Prepetition bank product obligations       US$7,944,908

Pursuant to a Forbearance Agreement with the Debtors, the
prepetition lenders implemented a mechanism for sweeping the
Debtors' bank accounts on a daily basis prior to the bankruptcy
filing.  Accordingly, the Debtors had minimal cash on hand as of
Oct. 28, 2007, the date they filed for voluntary application
under the Companies' Creditors Arrangement Act.

Subsequently, pursuant to the CCAA initial order, the
prepetition lenders were stayed from sweeping cash from P&T
Ltd.'s bank accounts and the Debtors were authorized to use the

QUEBECOR WORLD: To Suspend Dividends on Preferred Shares
--------------------------------------------------------
Quebecor World Inc. is suspending dividend payments on its
Series 3 and Series 5 Preferred Shares.  While the company has
the funds available to pay such dividends, it has been advised
by counsel that as a result of recent developments, the company
may be prevented from paying dividends to holders of its
preferred shares because it may not satisfy the applicable
capital adequacy test contained in the Canada Business
Corporations Act.

In order to rectify this situation, the company intends to
propose to its shareholders at its next annual shareholders
meeting scheduled for May 2008 a reduction of stated capital as
permitted under the CBCA to allow the company to resume paying
dividends, including accrued, unpaid dividends.

The company notes that the dividends on the Series 3 and Series
5 preferred shares (including dividends that were to be paid on
Dec. 1, 2007) are cumulative and holders will be entitled to
receive unpaid dividends, when declared by the Board of
Directors, at such time as the company is permitted to resume
the payment of dividends.

The company also disclosed that one of its directors, Robert
Coallier has resigned from the Board of Directors for personal
reasons which are unrelated to the announcement.

plan involving an offer of approximately CDNUS$250 million of
its equity shares, an offer on a private placement basis of an
aggregate of US$500 million of new debt securities and
amendments to the Company's secured credit facilities".

Moody's also placed these ratings on review for possible
downgrade: B3 Corporate Family Rating; Caa1 Senior Unsecured

IKON OFFICE: Board Approves US$500 Mil. Common Stock Redemption
---------------------------------------------------------------
IKON Office Solutions' board of directors has approved the
repurchase of US$500 million of its common stock.  IKON intends
to repurchase up to US$295 million of its common stock through a
modified "Dutch Auction" self-tender offer at a price of not
less than US$13 per share or more than US$15 per share.

The minimum tender price represents a premium of around 21% over
IKON's closing stock price of US$10.77 on Nov. 19, 2007.  The
tender offer is expected to commence on Nov. 21, 2007, and will
be subject to certain conditions, including the receipt of
financing.

The company plans to repurchase the difference between
US$500 million and the amount repurchased through the tender
offer during the balance of fiscal 2008.  The rate and pace of
these share repurchases will be subject to financing and market
conditions, as well as applicable regulations.

This statement follows an increase by IKON's board of directors
of its share repurchase program authorization to US$1.1 billion
in total.  Since program inception and assuming completion of
the US$500 million share repurchase plan, IKON will have
repurchased nearly US$1 billion of its shares under its share
repurchase program.  The company plans to finance these share
purchases through a combination of cash and incremental
borrowings.

IKON also has entered into an amended confidentiality agreement
with Steel Partners II L.P., pursuant to which Steel Partners
has agreed to refrain from taking certain actions with respect
to its investment in IKON through May 2009, subject to
completion of the pending repurchase plan.

"We are returning immediate value to our shareholders through
this tender offer," Matthew J. Espe, IKON's chairman and chief
executive officer, said.  "Our share repurchase program has been
an integral part of our capital strategy for several years, and
the decision to accelerate this program reflects our belief that
our shares are currently undervalued.  We are also pleased to
announce our agreement with Steel Partners, who remains
supportive of our ongoing repurchase strategy."

The company plans to provide an update on the expected impact of
the share repurchase plan, including any associated non-
recurring charges, as well as related guidance for fiscal year
2008 during its earnings conference call in January 2008.  The
company does not expect the tender offer to have a material
impact on its first quarter fiscal 2008 financial results,
excluding any non-recurring charges it may incur.

EXIDE TECH: Posts US$14.8 Mln Net Loss in Fiscal 2008 2nd Qtr.
--------------------------------------------------------------
Exide Technologies reported its financial results for its fiscal
2008 second quarter, which ended Sept. 30, 2007.

The company reported a net loss of US$14.8 million for the
second quarter of fiscal 2008 as compared with a net loss of
US$35.1 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2007.  Included
in the current period's net loss was a non-cash tax charge of
US$16.7 million resulting from an adjustment to the company's
net deferred tax asset in Germany to recognize the impact of a
lower corporate tax rate.

Foreign currency remeasurement gains in the current quarter
aggregated US$9.6 million compared with a US$1.3 million
remeasurement loss in the prior year period favorably impacting
year-over-year pre-tax results by US$10.9 million.

Operationally, gross profit aggregated US$130.3 million in the
second quarter of fiscal 2008, an increase of US$24.9 million
over the prior year comparable period. Increased gross profit
resulted principally from higher pricing and continued improved
manufacturing performance, partially offset by the rapid
escalation of lead costs and recognition of an incremental
US$4.5 million environmental remediation provision.

Total selling, general, and administrative expenses for the
second quarter of fiscal 2008 amounted to US$107.9 million
compared with US$102.3 million in the fiscal 2007 second
quarter.  The fiscal 2008 second quarter costs were unfavorably
impacted by the weaker U.S. dollar, but were also impacted by
targeted incremental marketing spending.

The net loss for the first half of fiscal 2008 was
US$50.5 million and compared with a net loss of US$73.0 million
in the comparable prior year period.  In addition to the
aforementioned tax charge in the second quarter of fiscal 2008,
current year six month results were unfavorably impacted by the
US$21.3 million loss on early debt extinguishment disclosed in
the company's 10-Q for the first quarter of this fiscal year,
associated with the company's lower cost refinancing effort.

                  Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of Sept. 30, 2007, the company had total liquidity of
US$167.7 million consisting of cash and cash equivalents of
US$91.6 million and availability under the company's revolving
loan facility and other loan facilities of US$40.1 million and
US$36.0 million.  This compared to a total liquidity position of
US$145.9 million at March 31, 2007, consisting of cash and cash
equivalents of US$76.2 million and availability under the
revolving loan facility and other credit facilities of
US$59.3 million and US$10.4 million.

At Sept. 30, 2007, the company's balance sheet showed total
assets of US$2.39 billion, total liabilities of US$2.0 billion
and total shareholders' equity of US$394.7 million.

                     About Exide Technologies

ALCATEL-LUCENT SA: Inks EUR750 Million Deal with Chinese Firms
--------------------------------------------------------------
Alcatel-Lucent S.A. has formally signed a package of frame
agreements with a combined value of up to EUR750 million for
mobile communications solutions and services with China Mobile
and China Unicom, leading Chinese mobile service providers.

Part of these agreements was previously announced.  They were
secured through Alcatel-Lucent's flagship company in China,
Alcatel Shanghai Bell, and French President Nicolas Sarkozy and
Chinese President Hu Jintao took part in the formal signing
ceremony held today in Beijing.

The solutions Alcatel-Lucent is providing are enabling China
Mobile and China Unicom to dramatically expand the capacity and
coverage of their mobile networks so that they can continue to
meet the robust demand for mobile services in China.

Under the terms of the EUR600 million agreement with China

supporting China Mobile's extensive network expansion plans.
The solution includes GSM/GPRS/EDGE radio and core networking
equipment, mobile applications, IP routers and optical
networking equipment. Alcatel-Lucent also is providing China
Mobile with a TD-SCDMA solution being implemented in the
operator's trial network and will support services such as Video
Streaming, WAP and Personal Ring Back Tone.

"We are delighted and proud that both China Mobile and China

"Alcatel-Lucent has experienced a significant year in China with
an increased market share in both fixed and mobile market
sectors. We are committed to continue supporting our Chinese
customers through our flagship company, Alcatel Shanghai Bell."

CHARLES JOURDAN: French Court to Name Buyer to November 29
----------------------------------------------------------
The Commercial Court of Romans-sur-Isere in Drome, France,
postponed a decision to name a buyer for Charles Jourdan SAS
until Nov. 29, 2007, The Financial Times reports citing Les
Echos as its source.

According to Les Echos, potential buyers for Charles Jourdan
includes French group Repetto and U.S. firm Omniscent.

Headquartered in Romans Sur Isere, France, Charles Jourdan --
http://www.charles-jourdan.fr/-- manufactures luxury footwear.

As previously reported in the TCR-Europe on Oct. 2, 2007, the
court placed Charles Jourdan in compulsory administration on
Sept. 12, 2007, after it filed for redressment judiciaire, the
French equivalent of Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, for the
second time.

The company first filed for bankruptcy on Aug. 22, 2005.
Avendis and Finaluxe bought the company on Nov. 2, 2005.


DOMAINE DE FAUGERAS: Files for Bankruptcy Protection
----------------------------------------------------
Domaine de Faugeras has filed for bankruptcy protection, the
Financial Times reports citing Les Echos as its source.

According to the report, the site and structure of the hotel
have attracted interest from potential buyers.

Headquartered in Limoges, France, Domaine de Faugeras --
http://www.domainedefaugeras.com/-- is a luxury four-star hotel
restaurant.  The company opened at the beginning of 2007.


RHODIA SA: Moody's Holds Ba3 Rating on Strong Performance
---------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service affirmed Rhodia S.A. Corporate Family
Rating at Ba3.  The outlook has been changed to Positive from
Stable.

Moody's affirmation of Rhodia's Corporate Family Rating reflects
the continuous strength in the operating performance of the
group underpinned by the improved business profile of the
issuer.  The affirmation also recognizes Rhodia's substantial
improvement in profitability over the first nine months of
fiscal year 2007 with a 210bps increase in reported recurring
EBITDA margin to 15.7% despite adverse raw materials, energy
costs and foreign exchange environment.  The company's ability
to pass increases in raw material prices to its customers
through higher sales prices demonstrates the successful
realignment of the group's portfolio and the strengthening of
its market positions in selected core businesses.

Finally Moody's highlights the company's focus on Free Cash Flow
generation (EUR41 million FCF generated over nine months to
Sept. 30, 2007) and on steady deleveraging of the balance sheet
as supportive factors for the rating.  However it is noted that
debt metrics remain elevated for the rating category as Rhodia
still carries sizeable pension liabilities, which accounted for
approximately 30% of total adjusted debt in 2006.

The change in the outlook from Stable to Positive assumes
further improvement in the operating performance of the group
supported by continued pricing power, supportive demand in key
business areas and continuous earnings flow from the CER trading
activities of the group, which have strongly contributed to the
earnings of Rhodia over the nine months to Sept. 30, 2007.
Rhodia has confirmed its targets to generate Free Cash Flow of
more than EUR100 million for the fiscal year ending
Dec. 31, 2007 during its third quarter results and Moody's
expects the issuer to continue focusing on generating strong
Free Cash Flow into fiscal year 2008 to further strengthen its
financial profile.

Rhodia has already made strong inroads in further improving its
debt metrics by announcing that they will reach reported Net
Debt/Recurring EBITDA target of below 2.0x at the end of fiscal
year end 2007, i.e. one year ahead of schedule.  The refinancing
of the issuer's high-cost legacy notes is also expected to
contribute to the improvement in Free Cash Flow generation
beside the fact that the maturity profile of Rhodia's debt has
been strengthened.

Rhodia maintains a good liquidity position.  Moody's expects the
liquidity needs over the next twelve months consisting mainly of
capex funding needs to be covered by operating cash flows.
Moody's gains additional comfort from the company's available
cash balances (EUR361 million reported at Sept. 30, 2007) as
well as from the substantial headroom under the company's multi-
year EUR600 million revolving credit facility and the absence of
material short-term maturities within the next 12 months.

These ratings of Rhodia S.A. were affirmed:

   -- Corporate Family Rating at Ba3;

   -- Probability of Default Rating at Ba3;

   -- Rhodia S.A. Senior Unsecured rating at B1, LGD4 (69%);

   -- Rhodia S.A. Senior convertible notes rating at B1, LGD4
      (69%).

Rhodia S.A., headquartered in Paris, France, is a diversified
specialty chemicals group with leading market positions in most
of its business applications.  Rhodia reported revenues of
EUR3.81 billion and a recurring EBITDA of EUR600 million for the
first nine months to Sept. 30, 2007.

CARROZZERIA BERTONE: Files for Bankruptcy Protection
----------------------------------------------------
Carrozzeria Bertone S.p.A. has filed for bankruptcy protection
after accumulating EUR37.3 million in losses for the past three
years, Luca Ciferri writes for Automotive News Europe.

Bertone filed for concordato preventivo, -- similar to Chapter
11 bankruptcy protection in the U.S. -- which prevents creditors
to collect payments while the company reorganizes, Automotive
News Europe relates.  The filing foresees Bertone's management
overseeing the reorganization.

The company, however, excluded its design, engineering and glass
businesses from the filing.

"We are currently conducting confidential talks with Italian and
international industrial and financial entities to secure
Carrozzeria Bertone a future in vehicle manufacturing," CEO Lili
Bertone said in the statement.

Bertone, which has manufacturing capacity of 70,000 units a
year, needs to produce 30,000 units a year to break even.

The company's 1,350 strong-workforce is currently paid under a
state funded scheme, which expires on Dec. 31, 2007.

Headquarterd in Turin, Italy, Carrozzeria Bertone S.p.A. --
http://www.bertone.it/-- manufactures car for the Bertone
Gorup.  The company does the product and process engineering for
all of its products and handles the entire manufacturing cycle.

X5 RETAIL: Earns US$13.15 Million for Third Quarter 2007
--------------------------------------------------------
X5 Retail N.V. released its financial results for the third
quarter and first nine months ended Sept. 30, 2007.

X5 posted US$13.15 million in net profit on US$1.27 billion in
net revenues for the third quarter 2007, compared with
US$10.81 million in net profit on US$830.54 million in net
revenues for the same period in 2006.

X5 posted US$54.2 million in net profit on US$3.62 billion in
net revenues for the first nine months of 2007, compared with
US$36.11 million in net profit on US$2.41 billion in net
revenues for the same period in 2006.

The Company has revised its full year 2007 guidance on store
openings from 150,000 sq. m. to around 140,000 sq. m., which
reflects its decision to focus on operational performance of
existing stores and ensure high Christmas and New-Year sales,
rather than pushing openings in December 2007.

Unbalanced store opening at the very year-end affects
performance of existing stores, generates extra costs, and does
not guarantee the required quality of the openings.  As usual,
the company will provide our 2008 store opening guidance in
January 2008.  The stores that are technically ready to be
opened after mid-December 2007 but operational in early 2008
will be reported separately.

"We are pleased to report all time high sales growth of 53%,
which reflects our unrivaled leadership in all segments and
regions of X5 operations," Lev Khasis, X5 Retail Group CEO,
said.  "Like-for-like sales as well as new store performance
were very strong despite seasonal effects of the third quarter -
the toughest quarter for modern food retail.  We have invested a
lot of effort to retain customers by running a countrywide promo
in September, which proved to be a great success but pressured
margins.  However, our focus on improvement of purchasing terms,
upgrade of logistics capacity and optimization of business
processes, combined with strong sales momentum, shall enable X5
to meet its aggressive growth and profitability targets for the
full year."

"As we are preparing for record-high Christmas and New-Year
sales, we decided to postpone several store openings until early
2008," Mr. Khasis added.  "This decision will enable us to
concentrate on operational performance of existing stores,
minimize store opening costs and ensure higher quality of the
openings.   Thus, we expect to open approximately 140,000 sq. m.
in 2007, but keep our full-year sales target unchanged."

starting base and strong team to support me."

"My last five years as the CFO of Perekrestok and then X5 Retail
Group have been the most exciting time and interesting challenge
in my life and I look forward to working with Lev Khasis as his
strategic advisor," Mr. Podolskiy said.  "I am pleased to pass

for this role."

FORD MOTOR: Strike Continues Despite Initial Wage Agreement
-----------------------------------------------------------
The strike at Ford Motor Co.'s site in Vsevolozhsok, Russia,
continues despite a meeting between company management and
employees on Nov. 26, 2007, The Associated Press reports.

According to union chief Alexei Etmanov, the management agreed
in principle to raising wages, but did not disclose concrete
figures, AP relates.

"We haven't agreed on anything," Mr. Etmanov was quoted by the
Associated Press as saying.

Ford, meanwhile, said it would resume production today, Nov. 28,
with non-striking employees working on single shift.

"We are not going to comment on the management's intentions," Mr
Etmanov commented.  "Let them try to restart the assembly line,
and we'll see.  We are going to continue the strike."

As reported in the TCR-Europe on Nov. 22, 2007, workers launched
an indefinite strike on Nov. 20, 2007, demanding higher wages
and reduction of night shifts from March 2008.  The strike
halted the Ford Focus production line, RIA Novosri reports.

According to reports, Ford's workers held a 19-hour strike on
Nov. 6, 2007, after management repeatedly rejected their pay
hike demands.  They returned to work after a court ordered the
union to postpone further action until Nov. 20, 2007.

The Vsevolozhsk plant produced about 60,000 cars in 2006, mainly
the Focus model, and plant officials have said they were hoping
to increase production to 75,000 for 2007.

Standard & Poor's Ratings Services affirmed its 'B' long-term
corporate credit and other ratings on Ford Motor Co. and Ford
Motor Credit Co. and removed them from CreditWatch with positive
implications, where they were placed Sept. 26, 2007.  S&P said
the outlook is stable.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Nov. 19, 2007,
Moody's Investors Service affirmed the long-term ratings of Ford
Motor Company (B3 Corporate Family Rating, Ba3 senior secured,
Caa1 senior unsecured, and B3 probability of default), but
changed the rating outlook to Stable from Negative and raised
the company's Speculative Grade Liquidity rating to SGL-1 from
SGL-3.

Moody's also affirmed Ford Motor Credit Company's B1 senior
unsecured rating, and changed the outlook to Stable from
Negative.

These rating actions follow Ford's announcement of the details
of the newly ratified four-year labor agreement with the UAW.


METALLINVESTBANK: Moody's Puts Outlook to Neg. on B2/NP Ratings
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service changed the outlook on the B2/Not
Prime local and foreign currency deposit ratings of
Metallinvestbank to negative from stable.  MIB's bank financial
strength rating of E+ was affirmed with stable outlook.

Concurrently, Moody's Interfax Rating Agency downgraded MIB's
long-term national scale rating to Baa1.ru from A3.ru.  The NSR
carries no specific outlook.  Moscow-based Moody's Interfax is
majority-owned by Moody's, a leading global rating agency.

According to Moody's and Moody's Interfax, the B2/Not Prime/E+
global scale ratings reflect MIB's global default and loss
expectation, while the Baa1.ru national scale rating reflects
the standing of the bank's credit quality relative to its
domestic peers.

"These rating actions reflect the decline in MIB's market
franchise over recent years.  This is accompanied with an
increased concentration of the bank's loan portfolio -- in which
related parties take a dominant position of more than one-third
-- as well as the deterioration in MIB's core profitability
indicators, with interest income accounting for only a small
proportion of total operating income as a result of sharply
reduced net interest margins.  So far, MIB's transition to a
more diversified and non-related client base has been slow,
making it more difficult for the bank to withstand the increased
competition in these segments," says Olga Ulyanova, a Moody's
Assistant Vice-President/Analyst.

Moody's recognizes that MIB has a relatively stable liquidity
profile, with a low dependence on market funding.  The bank's
other credit strengths include its proven expertise in money
market and forex dealing businesses, which are boosting its
profitability against a background of declining income from
conventional corporate banking services.  However, in the rating
agency's opinion, these advantages are outweighed by the
volatile nature of income earned on the forex and securities
trading markets.

According to Moody's, MIB's deposit ratings might be downgraded
if the bank fails to:

   (i) strengthen its client-related business lines, primarily
       through expanding its lending activities;

  (ii) diversify its customer base to non-related parties and
       notably decrease the concentration of its loan portfolio,
       and

(iii) significantly increase the share of recurring earnings in
       its total operating income.

Domiciled in Moscow, Russia, Metallinvestbank reported -- as of
Dec. 31, 2006 -- total IFRS assets of US$622 million (2005:
US$469 million), total capital of US$165 million (2005: US$125
million) and net income of US$9.2 million (2005: US$7.0
million).  Net loans declined by 9.35% in 2006 while provisions-
to-loans coverage increased to 10.87% as at year end 2006 from
9.41% a year before.  As of Oct. 1, 2007, the bank had two
regional branches in Chusovoy (Perm Region) and Vyksa (Nizhniy
Novgorod Region), and two representative offices in St.
Petersburg and Yekaterinburg.

ROSNEFT OIL: Takes Over Yurubcheno-Tokhomskoye Oil Field License
----------------------------------------------------------------
OAO Rosneft Oil Co. has added the operating license to
Yurubcheno-Tokhomsky oil blocks to its balance sheet, Interfax
News reports citing Federal Subsurface Resources Agency chief
Anatoly Ledovskikh.

Rosneft plans to develop its blocks independently from other oil
firms -- Gazprom and Slavneft -- operating in the Yurubcheno-
Tokhomskoye field, company president Sergei Bordachivnov said in
a statement.

Rosneft owns the Yurubchensky block and the southern part of the
Tersko-Kamovsky block of the Yurubcheno-Tokhomskoye field, while
Slavneft owns the Kuyumbinsky and part of the Tersko-Kamovsky
blocks of the field, Interfax News relates.

Mr. Bordachivnov added that "following the evaluation of the gas
potential of the field, we shall study the direction of
transportation by Gazprom and the gas belonging to it and we
shall try to coordinate the set-up of a single gas-transport
system."

The president also mulls creating a single transport system to
transport Slavneft's crude along the same flow as [Rosneft's]
oil" with the latter's shareholders TNK-BP and Gazprom Neft).

"This is completely logical, as the quality of the oil is
virtually identical," Mr. Bogdanchikov said in a company
statement.  "It is highly likely that we shall come to an
agreement and shall work together," said.

Rosneft acquired the license to the block from OAO Yukos Oil Co.
during the latter's bankruptcy auction in May.

Mr. Ledovskikh told Interfax that though Yukos had violated the
terms of the license by failing to meet production drilling
timetables, Rosneft may apply with the agency to amend the
license conditions.

"They haven't applied yet, but they will," Mr. Ledovskikh told
Interfax.  "We'll consider it."

According to Interfax, Yurubcheno-Tokhomsky has 220 million tons
of oil reserves and is a key center of reserves for filling the
East Siberia-Pacific Ocean oil pipeline.

                          About Rosneft

Headquartered in Moscow, Russia, OAO Rosneft Oil Co. --
http://www.rosneft.com/-- produces and markets petroleum
products.  The Company explores for, extracts, refines, and
markets oil and natural gas.  Rosneft produces oil in Western
Siberia, Sakhalin, the North Caucasus, and the Arctic regions of
Russia.

outlook is positive.

TNK-BP HOLDING: Units' Minority Owner Cry Rights Violations
-----------------------------------------------------------
IK Russ-Invest has asked the Investor Protection Association to
probe into minority shareholder rights violations at units of
TNK-BP Holding Ltd., Interfax News reports.

According to an statement from IPA, corporate governance
practices at Ryazneftekhimprodukt and Nizhnevartovskneftegaz --
more than 50% of which is owned by TNK-BP -- show signs of
systemic violations of the rights of minority shareholders and
provision of current Russian legislation.

A TNK-BP spokesman told Interfax that the company has yet to
receive a formal complaint from Russ-Invest and is not ready to
act on the IPA statement.  The spokesman noted that
Nizhnevartovskneftegaz had suspended operations due to
bankruptcy while Ryazneftekhimprodukt is close to shutting down.

A source privy to TNK-BP told Interfax that Russ-Invest bought
shares in the units in 2006, despite knowing their financial
conditions.

"This investor knew what risks he was taking," the source told
Interfax.  "I even suspect that he took them intentionally, with
the aim of later proposing that TNK-BP buy out the shares at a
good price."

                          About TNK-BP

Headquartered in Moscow, Russia, TNK-BP Holding Ltd. operates
six refineries in Russia and Ukraine, and markets products
through 2,100 retail service stations operating under TNK and BP
brand.  BP Plc and Alfa Access/Renova jointly own the group.

TNK-BP holds a strategic position as the second largest liquids
producer in the Russian intergraded operating environment,
accounting for approximately 18% of Russia's total crude oil

X5 RETAIL: Earns US$13.15 Million for Third Quarter 2007
--------------------------------------------------------
X5 Retail N.V. released its financial results for the third
quarter and first nine months ended Sept. 30, 2007.

X5 posted US$13.15 million in net profit on US$1.27 billion in
net revenues for the third quarter 2007, compared with
US$10.81 million in net profit on US$830.54 million in net
revenues for the same period in 2006.

X5 posted US$54.2 million in net profit on US$3.62 billion in
net revenues for the first nine months of 2007, compared with
US$36.11 million in net profit on US$2.41 billion in net
revenues for the same period in 2006.

The Company has revised its full year 2007 guidance on store
openings from 150,000 sq. m. to around 140,000 sq. m., which
reflects its decision to focus on operational performance of
existing stores and ensure high Christmas and New-Year sales,
rather than pushing openings in December 2007.

Unbalanced store opening at the very year-end affects
performance of existing stores, generates extra costs, and does
not guarantee the required quality of the openings.  As usual,
the company will provide our 2008 store opening guidance in
January 2008.  The stores that are technically ready to be
opened after mid-December 2007 but operational in early 2008
will be reported separately.

"We are pleased to report all time high sales growth of 53%,
which reflects our unrivaled leadership in all segments and
regions of X5 operations," Lev Khasis, X5 Retail Group CEO,
said.  "Like-for-like sales as well as new store performance
were very strong despite seasonal effects of the third quarter -
the toughest quarter for modern food retail.  We have invested a
lot of effort to retain customers by running a countrywide promo
in September, which proved to be a great success but pressured
margins.  However, our focus on improvement of purchasing terms,
upgrade of logistics capacity and optimization of business
processes, combined with strong sales momentum, shall enable X5
to meet its aggressive growth and profitability targets for the
full year."

"As we are preparing for record-high Christmas and New-Year
sales, we decided to postpone several store openings until early
2008," Mr. Khasis added.  "This decision will enable us to
concentrate on operational performance of existing stores,
minimize store opening costs and ensure higher quality of the
openings.   Thus, we expect to open approximately 140,000 sq. m.
in 2007, but keep our full-year sales target unchanged."

X5 RETAIL: Evgeny Kornilov to Replace Vitaliy Podolskiy as CFO
--------------------------------------------------------------
X5 Retail Group N.V. disclosed that Evgeny Kornilov, currently
Deputy CFO of the Group and Head of Financial Planning and
Reporting, will become X5 Group CFO starting from Jan. 1, 2008,
following Supervisory Board approval in December this year.

Vitaliy Podolskiy will retire from his post as the Group CFO
effective as of Jan. 1, 2008.  Mr. Vitaliy will stay with the
Group as a Member of the Management Board and Chief Advisor to
the CEO.

"I would like to welcome Evgeny Kornilov in his new role.  I
have worked closely with Evgeny since he was appointed CFO of
our Perekrestok chain in 2006," Lev Khasis, X5 Retail Group CEO,
said.  "Evgeny not only is a very talented manager, he also has
a deep understanding of our business and unique financial
expertise that he has gained during his professional life.  I am
sure he is a rising star in the retail universe."

"I would also like to thank Vitaliy for all his work as CFO of
Perekrestok and X5 Group since 2002 and in particular his
contribution to the successful merger and integration of
Perekrestok and Pyaterochka," Mr. Khasis added.

"The Company is facing challenging opportunities, both in terms
of growth and on-going efficiency improvement," Herve Defforey,
Chairman of the Supervisory Board, commented.  "Evgeny Kornilov
is well prepared to address these challenges and will provide
all the necessary support and expertise for X5's further
successful development."

"This is very exciting time to take on this role, as X5 Group
continues its rapid expansion and prepares for major new
investments in the future," Mr. Kornilov said.  "I will focus on
implementing state-of-the-art financial management systems and
ensuring that the Group's financial strategy meets its
aggressive growth objectives.  Thanks to Vitaliy I have good
starting base and strong team to support me."

"My last five years as the CFO of Perekrestok and then X5 Retail
Group have been the most exciting time and interesting challenge
in my life and I look forward to working with Lev Khasis as his
strategic advisor," Mr. Podolskiy said.  "I am pleased to pass
my 'steering wheel' to Evgeny, being confident that he is ready
for this role."

AYT CAIXA: Moody's Junks Series E1 & E2 Notes
---------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned these definitive ratings to
the debt to be issued by Spain's AyT Caixa Galicia Empresas I,
FTA:

    -- Aaa to the EUR781.7 million Series A notes;
    -- Aa3 to the EUR41.6 million Series B notes;
    -- A3 to the EUR27.1 million Series C notes;
    -- Ba3 to the EUR24.5 million Series D notes;
    -- C to the EUR5 million Series E1 notes; and
    -- C to the EUR24.03million Series E2 notes.

The ratings address the expected loss posed to investors by the
legal final maturity (Jan. 27, 2045).  Moody's ratings address
only the credit risks associated with the transaction. Other
non-credit risks have not been addressed, but may have a
significant effect on yield to investors.  In Moody's opinion,
the structure allows for timely payment of interest and ultimate
payment of principal at par on or before the rated final legal
maturity date on Classes A/B/C/D, and for ultimate payment of
interest and principal at par on or before the rated final legal
maturity date on Classes E1 and E2.

AyT Caixa Galicia Empresas I, FTA is a securitization fund
created with the aim of purchasing a pool of loans granted by
Caixa Galicia to Spanish SMEs.  AyT Caixa Galicia Empresas 1 is
the first standalone transaction originated by Caixa Galicia.

Strong features within this deal include:

   (1) a reserve fund to cover potential shortfalls in interest
       or principal;

   (2) a 12-month artificial write-off mechanism;

   (3) 49.54% of the loans being backed by mortgages with
       weighted-average current loan-to-value of 53.32% (96.27%
       correspond to first lien mortgages);

   (4) good seasoning of the pool (2.58 years); and

   (5) low industry concentration (17% Farming & Agriculture,
       13% Building & Real Estate, according to Moody's industry
       classification).

The deal's weaker features include:

   (1) pro-rata amortization of the notes;

   (2) geographic concentration in the region of Galicia
       (64.56%); and

   (3) the negative impact of the interest deferral trigger on
       the subordinated series.  These increased risks were
       reflected in the credit enhancement calculation.

As of October 2007, the provisional portfolio comprised 13,128
loans and 11,998 debtors.  The loans were originated between
1989 and 2006, with a weighted average seasoning of 2.58 years
and a weighted average remaining term of 9.66 years.  The
longest loan matures in 2042. 8.96% of the pool enjoys a grace
period on principal payments.  Around 17% of the portfolio is
concentrated in the "Farming and Agriculture" sector, according
to Moody's industry classification.  In terms of debtor
concentration, the pool includes exposures up to 1.08% of the
issuance amount.

Moody's bases the definitive ratings primarily on:

   (i) an evaluation of the underlying portfolio of loans;

  (ii) historical performance information;

(iii) the swap agreement;

  (iv) the credit enhancement provided through the Guaranteed
       Investment Contract account, the pool spread, the reserve
       fund and the subordination of the notes; and

   (v) the legal and structural integrity of the transaction.

BFS INVESTMENTS: FSCS Declares Firm in Default
----------------------------------------------
The Financial Services Compensation Scheme has declared BFS
Investments Plc in default.

The declaration means that customers who have lost money can now
make a claim against the firm in respect of BFS split capital
investment trusts.

FSCS has declared BFS in default because it is satisfied that
the firm is unable, or likely to be unable, to pay compensation
claims against it.

Declaring the company in default follows extensive inquiries by
FSCS into the BFS funds and potential bases of claims.
Determining what liabilities BFS may have incurred to investors
who invested in its funds at various points in time is
complicated.

FSCS has taken expert advice and has discussed its approach with
relevant trade organizations.

FSCS expects to deal with claims against BFS in relation to:

   -- the individual trusts it managed;

   -- its role as an execution-only portfolio manager, where the
      marketing materials it used to promote its investment
      trusts may have wrongly described the risks associated
      with those investment trusts; and

   -- its role as a discretionary portfolio manager, where it
      could have misled its customers by holding investments
      within its portfolios that were unsuitable for their risk
      levels.

"Declaring BFS Investments Plc in default means that we are now
ready to consider claims from investors who may have lost money
as a result of investing in certain BFS split capital investment
trusts," FSCS Chief Executive, Loretta Minghella said.  "We are
aiming to deal with these claims as quickly as possible. Some
straightforward claims may be completed in a matter of weeks
while the more complicated ones are likely to take longer.  We
plan to complete the bulk of them within the next nine months.

                      About BFS Investments

BFS Investments plc -- http://www.bfsinvest.co.uk/-- is a fund
management firm that used to operate in the split capital trust
industry.  BFS Creditors confirmed the company's voluntary
liquidation after members passed a resolution to wind up the

FORD MOTOR: Strike Continues Despite Initial Wage Agreement
-----------------------------------------------------------
The strike at Ford Motor Co.'s site in Vsevolozhsok, Russia,
continues despite a meeting between company management and
employees on Nov. 26, 2007, The Associated Press reports.

According to union chief Alexei Etmanov, the management agreed
in principle to raising wages, but did not disclose concrete
figures, AP relates.

"We haven't agreed on anything," Mr. Etmanov was quoted by the
Associated Press as saying.

Ford, meanwhile, said it would resume production today, Nov. 28,
with non-striking employees working on single shift.

"We are not going to comment on the management's intentions," Mr
Etmanov commented.  "Let them try to restart the assembly line,
and we'll see.  We are going to continue the strike."

As reported in the TCR-Europe on Nov. 22, 2007, workers launched
an indefinite strike on Nov. 20, 2007, demanding higher wages
and reduction of night shifts from March 2008.  The strike
halted the Ford Focus production line, RIA Novosri reports.

According to reports, Ford's workers held a 19-hour strike on
Nov. 6, 2007, after management repeatedly rejected their pay
hike demands.  They returned to work after a court ordered the
union to postpone further action until Nov. 20, 2007.

The Vsevolozhsk plant produced about 60,000 cars in 2006, mainly
the Focus model, and plant officials have said they were hoping
to increase production to 75,000 for 2007.

the outlook is stable.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Nov. 19, 2007,
Moody's Investors Service affirmed the long-term ratings of Ford
Motor Company (B3 Corporate Family Rating, Ba3 senior secured,
Caa1 senior unsecured, and B3 probability of default), but

TEKTRONIX INC: Completes US$2.8 Bil. Merger Deal with Danaher
------------------------------------------------------------
Danaher Corporation has completed the merger of its indirect
wholly owned subsidiary into Tektronix Inc.

On Oct. 15, 2007, the company reached a definitive agreement
under which Danaher will make a cash tender offer to acquire all
of the outstanding common shares of Tektronix for US$38 per
share.   The aggregate purchase price is approximately US$2.8
billion, including debt, transaction costs and net of cash
acquired.

The board of directors of Tektronix has unanimously recommended
that Tektronix shareholders accept and tender their shares into
the offer, which represents a premium of approximately 34% to
Tektronix's closing price on Oct. 12, 2007.

The companies also disclosed the expiration, as of 11:59 PM, New
York City time, on Nov. 20, 2007, of the subsequent offering
period in the tender offer made by Raven Acquisition Corp.,
Danaher's indirect wholly owned subsidiary, for all of the
outstanding shares of Tektronix Inc. common stock.  The initial
tender offer period expired on Nov. 15, 2007.

According to the final report of the depositary for the offer,
as of the expiration of the subsequent offering period, a total
of approximately 69,094,604 shares of Tektronix common stock had
been validly tendered and not withdrawn into the offer,
including shares tendered during the subsequent offering period
and excluding shares previously tendered pursuant to guaranteed
delivery procedures that were not actually delivered.

Stockholders who validly tendered and did not withdraw their
shares will promptly receive the offer price of US$38 per share,
net to the seller in cash without interest.  As a result of
these purchases in the tender offer and subsequent offering
period, Danaher, through Raven Acquisition Corp., now owns over
90% of the outstanding shares of Tektronix common stock.

Raven will promptly acquire all of the remaining outstanding
shares of Tektronix common stock by means of a short-form merger
under Oregon law.  In the merger, Raven will merge with and into
Tektronix, and Tektronix will become an indirect wholly owned
subsidiary of Danaher.

Tektronix's common stock will now cease to be traded on the New
York Stock Exchange.  Detailed instructions will be mailed to
former Tektronix stockholders who did not tender their shares
into the offer outlining the steps to be taken to obtain the
merger consideration of US$38 per share in cash, without
interest.

The closing of the merger and the cessation of trading of
Tektronix's common stock on the New York Stock Exchange are each
a "fundamental change" under the terms of the indenture
governing Tektronix's US$345 million aggregate principal amount
1.625% Senior Convertible Notes due 2012, which entitles the
noteholders to convert their notes into a cash amount based on
the value of a certain number of common shares to be determined
by a formula set forth in the indenture.

                            *********

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
