WARNER MUSIC: March 31 Balance Sheet Upside-Down by US$103MM
------------------------------------------------------------
Warner Music Group Corp. reported second-quarter 2008 financial
results for the period ended March 31, 2008 and in an effort to
increase its financial flexibility has suspended its previous
policy of paying a regular quarterly dividend.

"Warner Music continues to outperform the industry and gain
share in key markets, which is a testament to our commitment to
investing in A&R and leading the recorded music industry’s
transition through innovation and creativity," said Edgar
Bronfman, Jr., Warner Music Group’s Chairman and CEO.  "While an
uncertain economic backdrop and evolving recorded music industry
make a conservative approach to our balance sheet a prudent
strategy, we remain excited about the long-term prospects for
our business.  In particular, we are gratified by WMG’s
excellent digital results this quarter, which highlight our
leadership position in driving this critical segment of the
music business."

Michael Fleisher, Warner Music Group’s Executive Vice President
and CFO, added, “We regularly evaluate our capital deployment
strategy.  Our Board and our management believe it is sensible
to maximize capital flexibility, given the vagaries of both the
economy and recorded music market, by suspending our dividend to
build cash reserves and reduce net debt.  This action will give
us the freedom to maintain our level of A&R investment, while
enhancing shareholder returns over time.”

                       Second-Quarter Results

For the second quarter 2008, revenue grew 2.0% to US$800 million
from US$784 million in the prior-year quarter, and fell 3.6% on
a constant-currency basis.  This performance was tempered by the
ongoing transition in the recorded music industry characterized
by a shift in consumption patterns from physical sales to new
forms of digital music and the continued impact of digital
piracy.  Domestic revenue declined 13.8% while international
revenue grew 19.9%, and grew 6.7% on a constant-currency basis.
On a constant-currency basis, revenue grew in Europe, Asia-
Pacific, Latin America and Canada.

Operating income from continuing operations grew 47.4% to US$28
million from US$19 million in the prior-year quarter and
operating margin from continuing operations increased 1.1
percentage points to 3.5%.  OIBDA from continuing operations
increased 20.0% to US$96 million from US$80 million in the
prior-year quarter and OIBDA margin from continuing operations
grew 1.8 percentage points to 12.0%.  Operating income, OIBDA,
operating margin and OIBDA margin for the second quarter of
fiscal 2007 reflected US$16 million in restructuring-related
charges in connection with the company’s fiscal 2007 realignment
initiatives.

Loss from continuing operations was US$34 million, or US$0.23
per diluted share for the quarter.  Loss in the prior-year
quarter was US$27 million, or US$0.19 per diluted share.

As of March 31, 2008, the company reported a cash balance of
US$249 million, total long-term debt of US$2.27 billion and net
debt (total long-term debt minus cash) of US$2.0 billion.

For the quarter, net cash provided by operating activities was
US$132 million.  Free Cash Flow amounted to US$99 million,
compared to Free Cash Flow of US$49 million in the comparable
fiscal 2007 quarter.  Unlevered After-Tax Cash Flow (defined as
Free Cash Flow excluding cash interest paid) was US$128 million,
compared to Unlevered After-Tax Cash Flow of US$73 million in
the comparable fiscal 2007 quarter.

For the quarter ended March 31, 2008, the company reported a net
loss of US$37 million compared to a net loss of US$27 million
for the quarter ended March 31, 2007.  The company's balance
sheet on the other hand showed that as of March 31, 2008, the
company had total assets of US$4,532,000,000 and total
liabilities of US$4,635,000,000 resulting in a shareholders'
deficit of US$103 million.  

                          Recorded Music

Revenue from the company's Recorded Music business increased
0.6% from the prior-year quarter to US$652 million, and was down
4.4% on a constant-currency basis.  The decline in constant-
currency revenue primarily reflected strength in Europe, Asia-
Pacific, Latin America and Canada, more than offset by declines
in domestic revenue.  Year-over-year revenue increased in the
international physical Recorded Music business and the global
digital Recorded Music business on a constant-currency basis.

Recorded Music digital revenue of US$155 million grew 47.6% over
the prior-year quarter and represented 23.8% of total Recorded
Music revenue.  Domestic Recorded Music digital revenue amounted
to US$101 million or 34.0% of total domestic Recorded Music
revenue.  Digital sales strength was primarily driven by growth
in global online downloads, and to a lesser extent mobile.

Major sellers in the quarter included titles from R.E.M., Simple
Plan, Kobukuro, Nickelback and the Juno soundtrack.
International Recorded Music revenue surged 22.4% from the
prior-year quarter to US$355 million, and rose 9.6% on a
constant-currency basis, while domestic Recorded Music revenue
slid 17.0% from the prior-year quarter to US$297 million.

The constant-currency growth in international Recorded Music
revenue in the quarter was the result of increases in the U.K.,
Germany, France and Japan.  Gains in international revenue were
attributable to improved local repertoire and international
releases as compared to the prior-year quarter and a
contribution from international touring and management
businesses.

Year-over-year differences in the domestic Recorded Music
business were due to the timing of releases and declines in the
physical business, which are not currently being fully offset by
growth in the digital business, though digital performance was
quite strong.  Retailers are more actively managing their
inventory levels in response to the tougher economy and credit
markets as well as the changing underlying demand for physical
recorded music product.

Recorded Music operating income from continuing operations
totaled US$22 million in the quarter, up 69.2% from US$13
million in the prior-year quarter, resulting in an operating
margin from continuing operations of 3.4% compared to 2.0% in
the prior-year quarter.  Recorded Music OIBDA from continuing
operations rose 27.3% to US$70 million for the quarter, compared
to US$55 million in the prior-year quarter.  Recorded Music
OIBDA margin from continuing operations expanded 2.2 percentage
points to 10.7% from the prior-year quarter.  Recorded Music
operating income, OIBDA, operating margin and OIBDA margin for
the second quarter of fiscal 2007 reflected US$15 million in
Recorded Music restructuring-related charges in connection with
the company’s fiscal 2007 realignment initiatives.

                      Music Publishing

Music Publishing revenue in the quarter increased by 8.4% from
the prior-year quarter to US$155 million, and was flat on a
constant-currency basis.  Music Publishing revenue grew 4.9%
domestically over the prior-year quarter, and grew 11.0%
internationally, but declined 3.2% internationally on a
constant-currency basis. Digital revenue from Music Publishing
amounted to US$9 million, representing 5.8% of total Music
Publishing revenue for the quarter.

On a constant-currency basis, declines in mechanical revenue of
9.5% and in synchronization revenue of 4.5% were offset by a
50.0% increase in digital revenue and a 3.4% increase in
performance revenue.  Mechanical revenue weakness reflected the
industry-wide decline in physical record sales.  Synchronization
revenue was negatively impacted by the Writers Guild of America
strike.

Music Publishing operating income amounted to US$36 million,
down 5.3% from US$38 million in the prior-year quarter,
resulting in an operating margin of 23.2% down 3.3 percentage
points from the prior-year quarter.  Music Publishing OIBDA
increased 1.9% to US$54 million for the quarter, compared to
US$53 million in the prior-year quarter.  Music Publishing OIBDA
and OIBDA margin were flat year-over-year, excluding a US$1
million favorable impact of foreign currency exchange rates.

QUANTUM CORP: Weak Performance Cues S&P to Hold B Rating
--------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services revised its outlook on San
Jose, Calif.-based Quantum Corp. to stable from positive
following the company's weak first-quarter results and
expectations for continued weakness until new products gain
traction.  At the same time, we affirmed the ratings on Quantum,
including the 'B' corporate credit rating.

"The rating reflects the company's product concentration in
legacy tape-related storage, challenges to upgrade and update
its product offering, and high leverage," said Standard & Poor's
credit analyst Lucy Patricola.  "These factors are offset
partially by consistent cash flow generation, a good market
position, and adequate liquidity."

Quantum is a leading vendor of data backup, recovery, and
archive solutions.

XERIUM TECH: S&P Keeps Junk Rating on High Leverage
---------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services affirmed its ratings on
Xerium Technologies Inc., including the 'CCC+' corporate credit
rating, and removed them from CreditWatch, where they were
originally placed with negative implications on March 19, 2008.

At the same time, S&P assigned a positive outlook. T he
Youngsville, N.C.–based manufacturer of consumable products
necessary for paper manufacturing had total debt of roughly
US$672 million as of March 31, 2008.

"The CreditWatch resolution reflects that Xerium has secured a
credit facility amendment that reduces the likelihood of a
financial covenant breach," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst James Siahaan.  In addition, the positive outlook
reflects the possibility that we could raise the ratings in
the near future, provided that the company maintains adequate
headroom under the financial covenants through cash generation
and debt repayment.  Headroom under the company's total leverage
ratio, interest coverage ratio, and fixed-charge coverage ratio
has increased, and dividend payments (which had been a heavy use
of Xerium's cash in recent years) have been prohibited for
the remaining life of the credit agreement.  In addition, the
company now has the ability to exempt certain exchange rate
fluctuations in calculating its total leverage ratio; the
inability to do so had contributed to high leverage figures
under the previous calculations, as exchange rates moved against
the U.S. dollar and Xerium's foreign debt balance outpaced its
earnings growth.

The ratings on Xerium reflect the company's highly leveraged
balance sheet, its limited liquidity, its modest size as a
supplier to niche markets, and its dependence on the papermaking
industry, all of which limit the company's organic growth
potential.  Partly mitigating these weaknesses are the
company's good operating margins, its geographic diversity, and
the strong competitive position of its niche product.

The recent amendment to Xerium's credit agreement has alleviated
short-term liquidity pressures.  S&P could raise the ratings if
the company is successful in generating cash, reducing costs,
paying down debt, and maintaining adequate headroom under its
credit agreement.  However, Standard & Poor's notes that while
the receipt of the amendment is positive, financial covenants
will tighten in the fourth quarter of 2008, which maypotentially
cause liquidity issues to reappear.  S&P would want to see more
clarity on this possibility before taking further rating
actions.

FIAT SPA: Dealer Audit Aims to Overhaul U.K. Operations
-------------------------------------------------------
Fiat S.p.A. is assessing its 167 dealers, in a bid to increase
car sales from 59,400 to 100,000 by end of 2010, Motortrader.com
reports.

According to the report, the review is aimed at overhauling
Fiat's UK operations and could mean replacing 20% of its car
dealers.

In an interview with Motor Trader, Mr. Andrew Humberstone, U.K.
managing director, mentioned that "fixing" the dealer network
was the brands priority in response to it's poor performance in
a customer satisfaction survey.

In the same Motor Trader interview, Mr. Humberstone said:  

"We have 167 dealers now and we are aiming for 200 by 2010, but
there will be some cleansing within that number.  I would expect
circa 20 per cent will change.

"These dealers will all be replaced and we will work with
others.  Unlike our colleagues at Alfa Romeo, Fiat cannot afford
to terminate half the network and produce half the volume – we
have shareholders that demand results, a certain market share,
so we will fix it step by step – I would love to do it quicker
but there are constraints."

"We are investing millions in the brand. The technology,
resources, marketing is there, the product quality is getting
better and better, it has to be supported by the dealer network.
It's now or never."

MELIORBANCA SPA: Fitch Puts BB IDR on Rating Watch Evolving
-----------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has placed Italy-based Meliorbanca SpA's Long-term
Issuer Default rating of 'BB' on Rating Watch Evolving, its
Individual rating of 'D' on Rating Watch Negative and its
Support rating of '5' on Rating Watch Positive.  At the same
time, the agency affirmed Melior's Short-term IDR at 'B' and
Support Rating Floor at 'No Floor'.

The RWN on the bank's Individual rating reflects further
deterioration in the bank's liquidity since April 2008 given the
currently difficult market conditions.  Failure by the bank to
improve its funding might, in Fitch's opinion, put additional
pressure on Melior's Individual rating.  At the same time, Fitch
notes that Melior has increased its utilization of funding lines
from its largest shareholder, Banca Popolare dell'Emilia Romagna
(rated 'A-' (A minus)/Stable), which owns a 28.2% stake in the
bank.  Fitch believes BPER is likely to maintain and, if
necessary, increase the amount of liquidity it is currently
providing to Melior.

Given its role as Melior's largest shareholder, Fitch expects
BPER to increase its involvement in developing a clear strategy
for Melior.  If BPER does so, it could indicate an increased
commitment to support the bank in the future, which is reflected
in the RWP placed on the bank's Support rating.  However, the
timing of a final solution and the degree of commitment from
BPER is still uncertain.  The RWE placed on Melior's Long-term
IDR reflects the resulting possibility that the rating might be
upgraded, should BPER increase its commitment to the bank, or
that a downgrade might be possible if the bank does not manage
to improve its funding in the absence of support from its
shareholders.  Fitch expects to resolve the Rating Watches once
the future strategy of the bank, and the involvement of its
shareholder, has become clearer.

Melior is a small, niche bank based in Milan carrying out
diverse businesses.  It is active in private banking, investment
banking, corporate lending and consumer lending.  Seven core
shareholders, mainly Italian co-operative banks (banche
popolari) own over 56% of the bank, while another 13.4% is owned
by Italian public sector entities.  The remainder is widely held
and listed on the Milan Stock Exchange.

BPER is the third-largest cooperative bank in Italy and seventh-
largest banking group in the country.

      equating to 29.9% of total outstanding capital and

      based on the Corporate Express share price as of close of
      day May 20, 2008.  The shares to be issued to Corely will

   -- Cash of EUR560 million

   -- Vendor Loan Note of EUR340 million to be issued to
      Lyreco's shareholders

The company added that the record date for the EGM is May 29,

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Europe on May 26,
2008, Moody's Investors Service put the ratings of Corporate
Express (CFR at Ba3) under review with direction uncertain. The
rating action follows the recent announcements that: Staples
Inc. (rated Baa1 under review for possible downgrade by Moody's)
launched an unsolicited public offer of EUR8.00 per ordinary
share in cash for Corporate Express, and Corporate Express
announced a business combination with Lyreco SAS (unrated by
Moody's), in which Corporate Express acquires Lyreco for 102.5
million new ordinary shares of Corporate Express and EUR900
million in cash and vendor notes, subject amongst other things
to approval by Corporate Express' shareholders.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Europe on May 23,
2008, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned a recovery
rating of '1' to the new secured debt issues of Corporate
Express U.S. Finance Inc., the U.S. subsidiary of Netherlands-
based office products distributor Corporate Express N.V.
(BB-/Watch Dev/--).  The recovery rating indicates our
expectation of very high (90%-100%) recovery for secured
creditors in the event of a payment default.


CORPORATE EXPRESS: Staples Ups Offer to EUR9.15 Per Share
---------------------------------------------------------
Staples, Inc. and its wholly owned subsidiary Staples
Acquisition B.V. disclosed Tuesday the increase of the all cash
offer price per ordinary share to EUR9.15 under the offer made
by Staples Acquisition B.V. on May 19, 2008, for certain
securities issued by Corporate Express N.V., as set out in the
Offer Memorandum of May 19, 2008.

According to published reports, Staples offer is now valued at
EUR1.67 billion or around US$2.6 billion.

Staples’ Offer is contingent upon Corporate Express’
shareholders rejecting the proposed Lyreco SAS transaction.

Shareholders holding approximately 23.3% of Corporate Express
ordinary share capital have irrevocably committed to tender
their shares into Staples’ Offer, subject to certain conditions.  
These shareholders have also entered into certain agreements to
vote against the proposed Lyreco transaction at the upcoming
Corporate Express EGM.

Staples has also lowered its minimum acceptance condition to 51%
of the voting rights attached to the fully diluted share
capital.

“At our increased offer price, there is no question that
Staples’ Offer is the superior choice for Corporate
Express shareholders,” said Ron Sargent, Staples chairman and
CEO.  “Staples’ Offer provides certain and immediate cash value,
without the significant risks found in Corporate Express’ long-
term business plan, with or without Lyreco.  Already a
significant number of Corporate Express shareholders have
committed their support of our Offer.  We strongly believe that
a Staples–Corporate Express combination is in the best
interests of all shareholders as well as the interests of
employees and customers.  We urge all Corporate Express
shareholders to vote against the Lyreco transaction and to
tender their shares to Staples.”

               Compelling transaction for
            Corporate Express’ Shareholders

Staples believes that its proposal is the most valuable and
certain option available to Corporate Express’ shareholders.

  -- Staples’ Offer provides a premium price and superior and
     immediate value per share relative to the value based on
     Corporate Express’ prospects with or without Lyreco.  The
     revised all cash offer per ordinary share represents:

     * A premium of 116% to the unaffected Corporate Express
       share price on Feb. 4, 2008, the day before rumors of a
       potential offer for Corporate Express circulated in the
       market;

     * A multiple of 9.7 times enterprise value to EBITDA
       consensus estimate for Corporate Express for 2008; and

     * An increase of 26% from Staples’ initial offer price per
       ordinary share of EUR 7.25 on Feb. 19, 2008.

  -- Staples’ Offer provides Corporate Express shareholders
     immediate and certain value.  Staples’ fully financed all
     cash offer has received antitrust clearance in the U.S. and
     Canada, and Staples is confident that clearance in the
     European Union will be granted on or before June 17, 2008.

  -- Staples’ Offer for Corporate Express is expected to close
     quickly, in early July 2008.

           Attractive Proposition to Corporate Express
                     Employees and Customers

Staples believes that the Offer is beneficial and attractive to
all Corporate Express stakeholders, including employees and
customers.

  -- Employees of Corporate Express are important to both the
     integration of the businesses and the achievement of future
     success.  Staples plans to invest in the people at
     Corporate Express and anticipates attractive career
     opportunities for employees at the combined company.

  -- The combined company will better serve customers of both
     companies.  Customers will benefit from expanded product
     and service offerings, improved distribution capabilities,
     shared best practices and a more efficient cost structure.

  -- Staples has an excellent track record of industry leading
     growth and profitability through its differentiated
     Contract model, as well as in integrating businesses and
     operating delivery business models in new markets.

        Proposed Corporate Express Acquisition of Lyreco
              Presents Considerable Risks

Corporate Express shareholders should evaluate the significant
risks of the proposed Lyreco transaction.

  -- Execution Risk: The Corporate Express–Lyreco value
     proposition is based on achieving unrealistic targets.  The
     inconsistent track record of Corporate Express, the
     weakening U.S. and global economies, and many
     integration/execution challenges and disruptions to its
     operations make these targets highly uncertain.

  -- Regulatory Risk: A Corporate Express–Lyreco combination
     requires antitrust clearance in Europe, Canada and
     Australia.  Regulatory scrutiny could result in
     considerable delays.

  -- Financial Risk: After funding the Lyreco transaction,
     Corporate Express will have an even heavier debt level,
     further limiting balance sheet flexibility.

  -- Human Resources Risk: Moving the operating headquarters to
     France and the headcount reductions in Europe foreseen by
     Corporate Express and Lyreco management are likely to cause
     human resources challenges.

Staples said that its Offer is contingent upon Corporate Express
shareholders rejecting the Lyreco transaction.  The transaction
between Corporate Express and Lyreco to combine the two
businesses, as announced on May 21, 2008, constitutes an action
by Corporate Express that materially and adversely affects
Staples’ Offer, its ability to consummate the Offer and the
value of the Corporate Express securities, within the meaning of
the condition to the Offer set out in section 6.5.4 of the Offer
Memorandum.

Accordingly, Staples expressly reserves any and all rights it
has under the condition to the Offer set out in section 6.5.4 of
the Offer Memorandum.  This means that the Offer is contingent
upon the Corporate Express shareholders voting against the
contemplated acquisition of Lyreco.  Following the rejection of
the Lyreco transaction, Staples must also be satisfied that
Corporate Express has no further material liabilities in
connection with the proposed Lyreco transaction.

        Irrevocable Commitments to Tender and Vote
            Against the Lyreco transaction

Corporate Express’ shareholders, who collectively own
approximately 23.3% of the issued ordinary share capital of
Corporate Express, including Centaurus, York Capital and
Halcyon, have expressed their support for the increased Offer.

These shareholders have irrevocably committed, subject to
certain conditions, to tender their shares into Staples’ Offer
under the conditions described in the Offer Memorandum.  These
shareholders have also entered into certain agreements to cast
their voting shares against the proposed Lyreco transaction at
the upcoming Corporate Express EGM to be held on June 18, 2008.

               Conditions to the Offer

Staples Acquisition B.V. confirms that it shall waive the
Minimum Acceptance Condition to the Offer set out in section
6.5.1 of the Offer Memorandum if and when prior to the
Acceptance Closing Time there have been tendered for acceptance
under the Offer such number of Ordinary Shares, including
Ordinary Shares represented by ADSs, Preference Shares and Bonds
that the votes attached to those securities, together with the
votes attached to the same types of securities owned by Staples
Acquisition B.V. and/or any of its affiliates at the Acceptance
Closing Time, represent at least 51% of votes attached to the
Ordinary Shares, including Ordinary Shares represented by ADSs,
Preference Shares and Bonds issued and outstanding at the
Acceptance Closing Time.

For purposes of the calculation of the percentage of votes
referred to in the preceding sentence, (i) the Bonds shall be
deemed to give right to such number of votes as would have been
the case if they had been converted on the Business Day
immediately preceding the Acceptance Closing Date at a
conversion price of EUR6.87 per Bond, (ii) the Ordinary Shares,
Preference Shares or Bonds shall include any options granted by
Corporate Express to subscribe for Ordinary Shares,
Preference Shares or Bonds, as the case may be, that are not
exercised and have not otherwise resulted in the issue by
Corporate Express of such Ordinary Shares, Preference Shares or
Bonds, as the case may be, to the option holders on or prior to
the Acceptance Closing Time and (iii) defined terms used in this
paragraph that are not otherwise defined in this press release
shall be deemed to have the meaning ascribed thereto in the
Offer Memorandum.

        Offers for the Convertible Bonds, Preference Shares A
           and Senior Subordinated Notes 2014 and 2015

Staples’ Offer is applicable to these outstanding securities of
Corporate Express:

  -- an all cash Offer for the 2% Subordinated Convertible Bonds
     due 2010 of EUR1,332.15 per Bond;

  -- an all cash Offer for the Preference Shares A of EUR3.15
     per share; and

  -- an all cash tender Offer to purchase all of Corporate
     Express U.S. Finance Inc.’s outstanding 8.25% Senior
     Subordinated Notes due July 11, 2014 and 7.875% Senior
     Subordinated Notes due March 1, 2015, on the terms and
     subject to the conditions set forth in its Offer to
     Purchase and Consent Solicitation Statement, dated May 22,
     2008.

                 Financing of the Offer

Staples confirms that the funds available under the credit
agreement described in section 6.4 of the Offer Memorandum,
together with Staples’ cash reserves and the funds available
under its existing revolving credit facility, remain sufficient
to finance the acquisition of Corporate Express.

             Offer Memorandum and further information

Corporate Express shareholders and bondholders are advised to
review the Offer Memorandum thoroughly and to seek independent
advice where appropriate in order to reach a judgment with
respect to the Offer and the Offer Memorandum.  With due
reference to all statements, terms, conditions and restrictions
included in the Offer Memorandum, shareholders and bondholders
are invited to tender their ordinary shares, including ordinary
shares represented by ADSs, preference shares and convertible
bonds under the Offer in the manner and subject to the terms,
conditions and restrictions set out in the Offer Memorandum.

Staples Acquisition B.V. expressly reserves any and all rights
it has in respect of the Offer, as described in the Offer
Memorandum, including the right to invoke or waive any of the
conditions to the Offer set out in section 6.5 thereof.

rating action follows the recent announcements that: Staples

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Europe on May 23,
2008, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned a recovery
rating of '1' to the new secured debt issues of Corporate
Express U.S. Finance Inc., the U.S. subsidiary of Netherlands-

(BB-/Watch Dev/--).  The recovery rating indicates our
expectation of very high (90%-100%) recovery for secured
creditors in the event of a payment default.


HERMES XV: Fitch Rates EUR26.1 Million Class E Notes at BB
----------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings assigned final ratings to Holland Mortgage Backed
Series (Hermes) XV's EUR2.9 billion mortgage-backed floating-
rate notes due 2045 as:

   -- EUR2.752 billion Class A notes: 'AAA';
   -- EUR23.2 million  Class B notes: 'AA+';

   -- EUR20.3 million Class D notes: 'BBB+' and
   -- EUR26.1 million Class E notes: 'BB'.

Each rated class in this transaction has a Stable Outlook.

Mortgage loans comprising the pool were originated in the
Netherlands by SNS Bank N.V. (rated 'A+'/Outlook Stable/'F1')
and its wholly-owned subsidiaries, BLG Hypotheekbank N.V. and
SNS Regio Bank.

The ratings are based on the quality of the credit portfolio,
available credit enhancement, the underwriting and servicing
capabilities of SNS Bank, BLG Hypotheekbank and SNS Regio Bank,
as well as the sound legal and financial structure.  At closing
credit enhancement, provided by the subordination of the
different classes, is 5.1% for the Class A notes, 4.3% for the
Class B, 1.6% for the Class C and 0.9% for the Class D notes.  
The transaction does not benefit from a reserve fund; the credit
enhancement for each class of notes is provided by
subordination, as well as the 35bps excess spread paid under a
swap.

US$200 million of its 7.875% Senior Subordinated Notes due 2016
to be issued in a private offering to qualified institutional
buyers in accordance with Rule 144A and Regulation S under the
Securities Act of 1933, as amended.

Scientific Games intends to use the net proceeds from the
offering, together with the net proceeds of a new US$250 million
senior secured revolving credit facility and a new US$550
million senior secured term loan credit facility, to repay all
outstanding borrowings under its existing senior credit
facilities and for general corporate purposes.

Scientific Games Corporation (NASDAQ: SGMS) --  
http://www.scientificgames.com/-- is an integrated supplier of   
instant tickets, systems and services to lotteries worldwide, a
leading supplier of fixed odds betting terminals and systems,
Amusement and Skill with Prize betting terminals, interactive

mutuel gaming operator in Connecticut, Maine and the Netherlands
and is a leading supplier of prepaid phone cards to telephone
companies.  Scientific Games’ customers are in the United States
and more than 60 other countries.

                          *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter Europe on June 3,
2008, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services raised its issue-level
rating on Scientific Games’ existing subordinated debt to 'BB-'
(one notch lower than the 'BB' corporate credit rating on the
company) from 'B+'.  The recovery rating on these securities was
revised to '5', indicating that lenders can expect modest (10%
to 30%) recovery in the event of a payment default, from '6'.  
At the same time, Standard & Poor's assigned its 'BB-' issue-
level rating with a recovery rating of '5' to subsidiary
Scientific Games International Inc.'s proposed US$200 million
senior subordinated notes due 2016.

Moody's Investors Service meanwhile assigned a Ba3 rating to the
proposed US$200 million senior subordinate note offering.  
Moody's also upgraded the rating of SGC's proposed US$550
million term loan (originally US$600 million) and US$250 million
revolving credit agreement to Baa3 from Ba1.

BLUEWATER INSURANCE: Weak Performance Cues S&P to Cut Ratings
-------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its insurer financial
strength ratings and long-term counterparty credit rating on
Norway-based nonlife insurer Bluewater Insurance ASA to 'BB+'
from 'BBB-'.  The outlook is stable.

"The rating action reflects our heightened concerns about
Bluewater's risk controls, following recent discussions with the
company," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Ali Karakuyu.
"It also reflects the greater-than-expected deterioration in the
company's competitive position in both the nonmarine and the
marine sector, demonstrated by the significant fall in gross
written premiums during the first quarter of 2008."

"In our opinion, the higher-than-expected deterioration in
Bluewater's underwriting performance in 2007 was partly due
to the company's weak underwriting risk controls," Mr. Karakuyu
commented.  As a result, Bluewater's combined ratio rose
significantly higher than most of its peer group to 140%
in 2007 from 104% in 2006."

The company posted a net profit of Norwegian krone 14 million
for the first quarter of 2008, following a release of unearned
premium reserves, a scale-down of the marine business, and the
improved claims environment of the marine sector in this period.  
It posted a loss of NOK27.7 million in first quarter 2007.  
Nevertheless, S&P remains cautious about the sustainability of
earnings in the medium term.

S&P regards Bluewater's competitive position as marginal
following the significant reduction in its gross premium income
in first quarter 2008.  While S&P understands that the premium
reduction of 60% in first quarter 2008 (compared with the same
period in the previous year) is partly due to changes in its
underwriting policy, S&P believes that the pricing inadequacy of
the marine segment and the company's short track record in the
non-marine sector will make it difficult to establish a
sustainable competitive position.

Standard & Poor's expects that the operating performance will
not deteriorate to a level below its current ratings over the
next two years.  At the same time, S&P expects the risk-based
capital adequacy to improve from its current level.  S&P expects
Bluewater's capitalization to remain good over the rating
horizon.

If Bluewater's capitalization and operating performance
deteriorates, S&P may take further negative action. To justify
gaining a higher rating, Bluewater needs to demonstrate
sustainable earnings momentum throughout the next cycle, not
least through the implementation of improvements to its
underwriting risk controls, and at the same time establish a
sustainable competitive position.

STOCZNIA GDYNIA: Poland Govt. Wants More Time to Seek Buyers
------------------------------------------------------------
The Polish government has asked the European Commission for more
time to privatize Stocznia Gdynia S.A. and Stocznia Szczecinska

around US$250 million -- to avert bankruptcy and finance its
operations.

Polish Treasury Minister Aleksander Grad, BBC News relates, said
assured the Commission that investors have expressed interest in
acquiring the shipyards.

PROMSVYAZBANK: Fitch Affirms IDR at B+ with Positive Outlook
------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed Russia-based Promsvyazbank's ratings
at Long-term Issuer Default rating 'B+', Short-term IDR 'B' and
Individual 'D'.  At the same time, Fitch has upgraded the
Support rating to '4' from '5' and Support Rating Floor to 'B'
from 'No Floor'.  The Outlook for the Long-term IDR remains
Positive.

The Positive Outlook reflects the ongoing strengthening of the
bank's customer franchise and regional expansion, coupled with
gradually improving prospects for Russia's major privately-owned
banks in a broadly supportive operating environment.  The
ratings are also supported by healthy profitability.  The
funding structure is balanced (prime sources are corporate
customer balances and wholesale international funding), near-
term refinancing risk is moderate and the liquidity position is
adequate (albeit somewhat tighter than in the past due to a
larger asset allocation to the loan book).

The ratings are constrained by pressure on capital levels
resulting from rapid growth and concentrations risks.  Fitch is
concerned by the performance of one of the bank's new, large
loan exposures, and in relation to this also the robustness of
the bank's credit underwriting.

If PSB is able to maintain a satisfactory capital position to
support its rapid expansion plans and adequate asset quality in
its loan book, then an upgrade may be forthcoming. However,
should there be deterioration in these areas, then the Outlook
may revert to Stable.

The upgrades of the Support rating and Support Rating Floor
reflect the increased franchise and national coverage of the
bank, and indicate a limited probability of support being
forthcoming from the Russian authorities, in case of need.  
PSB's Support rating and Support Rating Floor are now at the
same level as its peers Alfa-Bank ('BB'/Stable Outlook), MDM-
Bank ('BB'/Stable Outlook) and Bank Uralsib ('B+'/Stable
Outlook).

PSB is one of the largest Russian privately held banks (12th-
largest among all Russian banks at end-2007 in terms of assets).
It is majority-owned by the Ananiev brothers.  Germany's
Commerzbank AG ('A'/Outlook Stable) currently holds a 15% stake
in the bank, but is not involved in strategic or operational
management and there are no plans to increase its stake.  PSB
mainly serves large and mid-sized corporate clients.  It
operates about 270 points of sale across Russia to facilitate
ongoing regional diversification and franchise expansion into
the retail and SME segments.


RENOVA HOLDING: S&P Puts BB Corporate Credit Rating on Watch Neg
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services placed its 'BB' long-term
corporate credit and 'ruAA' Russia national scale ratings on the
operating holding company Renova Holding Ltd. on CreditWatch
with negative implications due to concerns over the company's
leverage and aggressive financial policy.

"The CreditWatch placement reflects our concerns that Renova's
sizable acquisitions of stakes in various Russian electricity
companies, and of an additional stake in Swiss manufacturing
company Oerlikon Corporation AG, could have substantially
increased its debt," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst
Elena Anankina.  "We believe that the company might not be in
line with its financial policy target of keeping net debt below
25% of the total portfolio.  The company also continues to
increase leverage to finance the next steps in the
acquisitions."

In 2007-2008, Renova acquired stakes in Russian electricity
companies (TGK-5, TGK-6, TGK-7, TGK-9, RKS) for an estimated
total of about US$2.8 billion and is set to increase its stakes
in these entities.  It has also increased its stake in Oerlikon
for an estimated US$0.8 billion.

Although the portion of cash that Renova used to acquire newly
issued electricity stock will remain within the group's
consolidation scope for some time, and although cooperation with
partners, payment delays offered by RAO UES, and uncertainty
about whether and when minority buyouts will be needed provide
some flexibility, S&P believes that Renova has considerably
increased its debt.

At June 30, 2007, the group reported US$2.6 billion in debt
versus US$301 million in cash.  Its investment portfolio under
International Financial Reporting Standards was US$11.6 billion,
plus US$1.0 billion in investment property and US$2.0 billion in
loans receivable that could be related to the investments in
process.  The ratio of net debt to portfolio assets was
therefore about 21%.  After the acquisitions, it might have
increased to closer to 30%.

"To resolve the CreditWatch status, we'll evaluate the group's
leverage when full-year 2007 IFRS financials are available and
when there is more clarity about the impact of the ongoing
acquisitions on Renova's leverage and liquidity," said Ms.
Anankina.

S&P will also evaluate the group's financial management, notably
its commitment to leverage targets and willingness to sell some
portfolio assets or cut dividends to return to the normalized
balance sheet structure.  The rating is unlikely to be lowered
by more than one notch.

The rating continues to be constrained by portfolio
concentration on a few large Russian assets (notably stakes in
United Company RUSAL and TNK-BP International Ltd.
{BB+/Stable/B}), a relatively low share of liquid assets,
and dependency on the majority shareholder, Victor Vekselberg.

This is offset by Renova's success in growing and diversifying
its asset base in recent years and by the favorable credit
quality of the group's core assets compared with Russian
benchmarks.

SISTEMA JSFC: Eyes Telecommunications License in China
------------------------------------------------------

Mr. Yevtushenkov told Bloomberg News that an operating license
even for a part of China will help increase Sistema's target
market, noting that the Asian country had had 583.5 million
mobile phone users at the end of April 2008.

Mr. Yevtushenkov, however, disclosed that although Sistema has
recently signed joint agreements with Chinese firms, the company
has yet to note progress on talks on the operating license with
Chinese authorities.

PRIVATBANKA AS: Moody's Assigns B2/NP/E+ Ratings
------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has assigned these global scale
ratings to Slovakia's Privatbanka, a.s.: a bank financial
strength rating of E+ and local currency and foreign currency
deposit ratings of B2/Not Prime.

Moody's also assigned national scale ratings of Baa3.sk/SK-3 to
the bank. The outlook on all ratings is stable.

Moody's said that Privatbanka's E+ BFSR is based on its niche
position in Slovakia's corporate lending, with a market share of
about 0.5%, and a developing franchise in private banking.  The
bank is focusing on lending to the SME segment, which is seen as
more profitable but also more risky than lending to large
corporates.  The private banking business has been growing in
recent years, but its contribution to the bank's profitability
remains small.  The rating also reflects the relatively short
track record of the bank's new ownership and the risk related to
the planned strengthening of the corporate banking business.

Privatbanka is 100%-owned by Slovak private equity group Penta
Holding (unrated), which is ultimately owned by five
individuals.  Moody's views the bank's risk management systems
and procedures as adequate for its size and risk profile.  The
bank's rating is constrained by the large concentration in the
loan portfolio, although, this is to some extent mitigated by a
high level of collateralization.  Privatbanka's funding is
mainly based on primary deposits and debt securities sold to its
corporate and private banking clients, but there is also a
substantial degree of concentration on the bank's liability
side.  The bank's profitability is good, albeit weaker compared
with its local peers. Moody's also recognizes that Privatbanka
shows strong capitalization and good asset quality, however, due
to the high degree of concentration in the loan book financial
fundamentals can be significantly affected by default of one or
two large clients.

Privatbanka's B2/NP deposit ratings are based on the bank's BFSR
of E+, which maps to a Baseline Credit Assessment of B2.  
Moody's has not factored any expectation of external support
into the bank's ratings, given that its parent is unrated and
based on the assessment that no systemic support would likely be
extended to the bank in the case of need, given its niche
business profile and limited importance to the Slovak banking
system.

Based in Bratislava, Slovakia, Privatbanka's total assets were
EUR286 million at end-2007.

XERIUM TECHNOLOGIES: Secures Fifth Amendment to Credit Facility
---------------------------------------------------------------
Xerium Technologies, Inc. disclosed in a regulatory filing that
on May 30, 2008, it secured a fifth amendment to its existing
senior credit facility.  Citigroup Global Markets Inc. acted as
the sole lead arranger, with more than 60 lenders participating.

The term loan portions of the amended and restated
US$660 million Credit Facility mature on May 19, 2012, and the
revolving credit portion matures on November 19, 2011.  The
amended facility requires the company to comply with revised
operating controls and financial covenants.  The revised
covenants place the company in compliance with the financial
requirements of the credit facility for the period ending and as
of March 31, 2008.

“We appreciate the active engagement and support of our many
lenders, who concur with the recently announced new strategic
direction of the company.  Through this amendment process, the
lenders recognized that Xerium’s historical covenant compliance
issues were the consequence of applying the Company’s very
strong cash flows to purposes other than debt repayment,” said
Stephen Light, President and Chief Executive Officer.  
“Substantially reducing our debt through the term of the new
agreement is at the very heart of our strategic plan to improve
the company, enhance operational efficiencies, and maximize
value on behalf of our numerous stakeholders.  We believe this
new agreement provides us access to the funds we need to execute
our plan. I’m very pleased we’ve reached this agreement with our
lenders in a timely manner and thank them, CitiBank and the Alix
Partners for their perseverance throughout this complex
process.”

Key provisions of the Amended and Restated Credit Facility
include:

     -- Libor based grid rate pricing at an initial rate of
        Libor + 5.50% with three identified step downs
        contingent upon future improvements in credit ratings:
        Libor + 4.25%, Libor + 3.75%, and Libor + 2.75%

     -- Covenants governing the use of proceeds from asset and
        equity sales

     -- Prohibition against dividend payments for the term of
        the agreement

     -- Limits on capital expenditures, restructuring,
        acquisitions and certain other investments

     -- Freezing foreign exchange rates for the purpose of
        calculating debt for certain covenant purposes

     -- Increased debt pay down requirements

     -- Increased performance reporting requirements

                  Avoiding Bankruptcy

As a result of the amendment, it is likely that the company may
have avoided a possible bankruptcy, Chris Coletta of the
Triangle Business Journal reports.  Mr. Coletta adds under the
agreement, the company’s expenditures is limited to US$50
million for 2008 and then US$35 million onwards until 2012.

                    Going Concern Doubt

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Europe on April 24,
2008, Ernst & Young LLP raised substantial doubt on the ability
of Xerium Technologies to continue as a going concern after it
audited the company's financial statements for the year ended
Dec. 31, 2007.  

The auditing firm stated that the company will likely have
future debt covenant violations under its existing loan
agreements.  Failing to meet financial covenants constitutes an
event of default, upon which the company's lenders could
accelerate the debt causing it to become payable and due.

GRAFTECH INT'L: Improved Performance Cues Moody's to Lift Rating
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service upgraded GrafTech International Ltd.'s  
corporate family rating to Ba2 from B1 and upgraded the ratings
on its debt issues.

The company's upgrade follows improvement in its operating
performance and credit metrics, significant de-levering, and
reflects the anticipated robust business conditions for the
remainder of 2008.  The SGL-1 speculative grade liquidity rating
was affirmed and the ratings outlook was revised to stable from
positive.  The following summarizes the ratings activity.

Ratings upgraded for GrafTech International Ltd.:

   -- Corporate family rating -- Ba2 from B1

   -- Probability of default rating -- Ba2 from B1

   -- US$225 million 1.625% Gtd sr unsec conv debentures due
      2024 -- Ba3 (LGD5, 73%) from B2 (LGD4, 66%)

Ratings upgraded for GrafTech's special purpose financing
vehicle, GrafTech Finance, Inc.:

   -- US$215mm Gtd sr sec revolving credit facility due 2010 --
      Baa3 (LGD2, 21%) from Ba1 (LGD2, 11%)

   -- 10.25% Gtd sr unsec global notes due 2012 -- Ba3 (LGD5,
      73%) from B2 (LGD4, 66%)

Ratings affirmed for GrafTech International Ltd.:

   -- Speculative grade liquidity rating: SGL-1

The recent upgrade in GrafTech's corporate family rating
reflects the company's improved operating performance which has
resulted in the firm generating positive free cash flow over the
past eight quarters and making significant debt reduction such
that credit metrics are supportive of the higher rating.  Debt
reduction has been achieved with free cash flow as well as the
proceeds from the 2006 sale of the company's cathodes business
(approximately US$135 million in gross proceeds) and other asset
sales.  GrafTech's success in passing on higher raw material and
energy costs to its customers in 2007 and 2008 has allowed it to
generate free cash flow.

The company typically sets its graphite electrode prices
annually and negotiates needle coke prices with its suppliers on
an annual basis, and as a result Moody's expects the company to
continue to enjoy attractive operating margins for the balance
of 2008.  The ratings incorporate Moody's assumption that the
company will likely re-lever its balance sheet after the
redemption of its convertible debentures and potentially
redeeming the remaining US$75 million of the 10.25% senior notes
due 2012 with at least US$200 million of debt.  Additionally,
the company has stated that it is looking at internal as well as
external growth opportunities, which may include acquisitions.

GrafTech's stable rating outlook reflects the company's strong
free cash flow generation, excellent liquidity and conservative
financial philosophy that may lead to further debt reduction in
the next year.  This outlook is supported by robust conditions
in the steel industry, and strong demand for GrafTech's
electrodes which is expected to allow GrafTech to continue to
offset future raw material and energy cost increases with higher
prices for its electrodes.  The ratings could come under
downward pressure if the company made a large acquisition or
took other actions to re-lever its balance sheet such that its
debt to EBITDA ratio exceeded 3x.

GrafTech International Ltd., headquartered in Parma, Ohio, is a
leading global manufacturer of graphite electrodes, and other
graphite products.  Revenues were US$1,067 million for the LTM
ended March 31, 2008.

PETROPLUS HOLDINGS: Moody's Keeps Ba3 Rating on Strong Earnings
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Services has affirmed Petroplus Holding AG's
corporate family rating at Ba3.  The senior unsecured rating
attributed to US$1.2 billion of senior unsecured notes issued by
Petroplus Finance Limited, a subsidiary of Petroplus Holdings
AG, has also been affirmed at B1.  The outlook for the ratings
is stable.

Petroplus is currently well positioned in its Ba3 rating
category.  The successful integration of the Coryton and
Ingolstadt refineries during the course of fiscal year 2007 has
contributed to a stronger revenue and earnings base and to a
higher degree of diversification both in terms of geographies
and product slate.  The integration of the two newly acquired
French refineries is expected to be smooth and to further
enhance the business profile of the group.  The agency envisages
that Petroplus will be operating in a more challenging
environment in 2008 driven by the high crude prices and refining
margin pressure for some distillates experienced currently.

Moody's notes that Petroplus is pursuing a growth strategy that
may involve further acquisitions in the short to medium term
including through its new equity partnership with Blackstone
Group and First Reserve.  Given the solid rating positioning,
there is some headroom for strategic investments that would be
partially debt-financed.

The stable outlook for the ratings reflects Moody's expectation
that Petroplus will be able to maintain a positive earnings
momentum and debt and cash flow metrics commensurate with the
current rating category despite a more challenging environment.
Positive rating pressure would build up if the operating
performance of the group continues on this trend and generated
free cash flows are applied to debt reduction. This expectation
is tempered by Petroplus' acquisition strategy.

Petroplus management has provided liquidity for rising working
capital needs in view of the high oil prices and the acquired
operations, by arranging a US$500 million factoring facility
under which the issuer can sell designated oil major receivables
and by raising a US$500 million senior convertible bond in March
2008.  In addition, Petroplus has access to a US$1.2 billion
Revolving Credit Facility and to an uncommitted US$1.5 billion
borrowing base which the company uses to purchase crude
inventories on a secured basis.  At the end of first quarter
2008, the company had US$95.8 milllion of cash & marketable
securities on balance sheet.  Petroplus tends to generate free
cash flows and has no material debt maturities within the next
twelve months.

These ratings of Petroplus Holdings AG are affected:

   -- Corporate Family Rating affirmed at Ba3;
   -- Probability of Default Rating affirmed at Ba3;
   -- Senior unsecured rating affirmed at B1;

Petroplus is the largest European independent refiner with a
total throughput capacity of 864 thousand barrels per day and a
Nelson complexity factor of 7.2.  Petroplus was grown through
the acquisition of several refineries over the last two-three
years. Petroplus is currently operating 7 refineries following
the acquisition of two new refineries in France on 1st April
2008.  Petroplus reported revenues of US$13.9 billion and an
EBITDA of US$551 million for the fiscal year ended 31st December
2007.

TURK EKONOMI: Fitch Rates Long-term Foreign Currency IDR at BB
--------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed Turk Ekonomi Bankasi A.S.'s ratings
as:

   -- Long-term foreign currency IDR: affirmed at 'BB'

   -- Short-term foreign currency IDR: affirmed at 'B'

   -- Long-term local currency Issuer Default rating: affirmed
      at 'BBB-'

   -- Short-term local currency IDR: affirmed at 'F3'

   -- National Long-term rating: affirmed at 'AAA(tur)'

   -- Individual rating: affirmed at 'C/D'

   -- Support rating: affirmed at '3'

The Outlooks for the Long-term IDRs and the National Long-term
rating are Stable.

TEB's IDRs are support-driven and reflect the bank's indirect
42.13% ownership by BNP Paribas, rated 'AA'/'F1+'/Stable
Outlook.  No further upside potential is possible given Turkey's
current Country Ceiling ('BB').  The Individual rating reflects
TEB's strong track record in managing risks; its expansion-
driven strategy backed by supportive shareholders, aimed at
boosting its modest franchise (2.3% share of deposits); sound
asset quality; and ALM controls.

TEB's Individual rating has never fallen below 'C/D', even in
times of extreme turmoil in Turkey's financial markets.  An
improvement in this rating may be possible if the bank builds a
longer track record of growing its franchise while maintaining a
sound financial profile.  Fitch has a high opinion of TEB's
management and systems, and prospects for continued profitable
development are favorable.  Fitch considers that BNPP has a very
high propensity to support TEB if required, although its ability
to do so might be limited by Turkey's BB Country Ceiling.  TEB's
Support rating is therefore constrained at '3'.

TEB's branch network has nearly tripled in three years to just
under 300 branches at May 2008; loans and customer deposits have
increased rapidly (33% and 18%, respectively, in 2007).
Expansion is putting pressure on overheads and the cost/income
ratio, at 65.3%, remains high for Turkey.  Key profitability
ratios, though acceptable, are lagging behind those of its
peers, but ROE remains above management's 20% target.

Loans are dominated by middle-market commercial (47%) and
corporate (24%) loans and customer concentrations are moderate.  
Impaired loan ratios have deteriorated sharply, albeit from an
exceptionally low basis, but first quarter of 2008 figures show
a stable 1.6% impaired loan ratio, fully reserved.

TEB's customer deposits, mainly from corporate and private
clients, have demonstrated stability over the years.  The bank
taps international syndicated markets for short- and medium-term
funding and, more recently, issued subordinated instruments to
boost capital ratios, which remain adequate (13.7% at first
quarter of 2008).  Rights issues are expected to raise some
TRY350 million in 2008.

TEB is 84.25%-controlled by TEB Financial Investment Company,
which is in turn 50:50-owned by France's BNPP and the Colakoglu
Group, a leading Turkish conglomerate.  TEB provides corporate,
commercial, retail and private banking services through some 300
branches.

BRITISH AIRWAYS: May Ground Flights Over High Fuel Costs
--------------------------------------------------------
British Airways plc may opt to ground flights as oil price hits
US$130 a barrel, David Millward writes for the Daily Telegraph.

BA chief executive Willie Walsh told the Daily Telegraph "we
will be looking at some routes to see if we can take out some
frequency."

However, according to sources at BA, it is unlikely that the
airline will axe all flights, although it may cut some services
on popular routes, the Daily Telegraph discloses.

BA, the paper adds, is expected to implement changes in the
autumn.

                   About British Airways

CABLE & WIRELESS: Needs to Raise Offer, Thus Investor Says
----------------------------------------------------------
Cable & Wireless PLc needs to offer more than 200p a share to
acquire Thus Plc, Dominic White writes for the Daily Telegraph,
citing Thus shareholder Investec Asset Management.

"We think that Thus is worth over GBP2 in independent form and
considerably more than this to another player," Peter Lowery, a  
fund manager at Investec, told the Daily Telegraph.

Investec, which holds a 5% stake in Thus stock, claims the
firm's value is more than 160p a share -- its price when C&W
announced it made a preliminary approach over a possible
takeover offer, the Telegraph relates.

Thus rejected C&W's approach but is reportedly open to
negotiations if the company submits a higher bid, the Telegrapg
reports.  Thus has tasked adviser Greenhill & Co., Inc. to
review its net value in case C&W submits a formal offer.

Meanwhile, sources privy to the situation told the Telegraph
that C&W views the potential acquisition as a strategic in-fill
rather an essential deal.  C&W has appointed Gleacher Shacklock
and Rothschild as advisers on the deal.

Headquartered in London, Cable & Wireless Plc
-- http://www.cw.com/new/-- operates through two standalone
business units -- International and Europe, Asia & US.  The

May 26, 2008, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services has revised its
outlook on Cable & Wireless PLC to developing from stable.  The
developing outlook means ratings can be raised, lowered, or
affirmed.  The 'BB-' long-term and 'B' short-term corporate
credit ratings remain unchanged.

DECO 11–UK: S&P Cuts Ratings on Three Note Classes; Off Watch
-------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Rating Services has removed from CreditWatch
with negative implications and lowered its ratings on the class
D, E, and F notes issued by DECO 11 – UK Conduit 3 PLC.  At the
same time, S&P has affirmed our ratings on the other classes in
the transaction.
  
The notes were initially placed on CreditWatch negative on May
16, 2008, after deterioration in the performance of two
underlying commercial loans, the Paladru loan, which has been
transferred into special servicing, and the Wildmoor Northpoint
loan.

S&P has lowered our rating on the class F notes due to immediate
concerns regarding a note default at the next interest payment
date.  In our opinion, the issuer would be required to make a
drawing under the liquidity facility to cover the special
servicing fees.  As the property securing the Paladru loan
has recently been revalued and the loan-to-value ratio is now
above the 90% threshold, the appraisal reduction mechanism has
been triggered.  The issuer will therefore not be able to draw
the entire amount under the liquidity facility to meet interest
payments required and the balance will immediately shorten the
most junior class of notes.
  
Furthermore, S&P has medium-term concerns over the income-
producing and value-sustaining capability of the property
securing the Wildmoor loan given the recent decline in rental
income, resulting in our lowering of the ratings on the class D
and E notes.

DORSET STREET: Moody's May Cut Ba1 Rating After Review
------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service placed EUR841 million of CDO tranches
issued by Oxford Street Finance Limited and Dorset Street
Finance Limited under review for possible downgrade.

These rating actions are a response to credit deterioration in
the underlying portfolios.  The transactions, managed by KBC
Financial Products, all have underlying portfolios which consist
of corporate names, US RMBS, CMBS, and CDO of ABS among other
assets.

Moody's announced on Feb. 4, 2008 that it is revising its
expected loss assumptions which are used for surveillance of
ratings of ABS CDOs holding subprime RMBS, specifically of the
2006 vintage.  Moody's stated that for purposes of monitoring
its ratings of ABS CDOs with exposure to 2006 subprime RMBS, it
will rely on certain projections of the lifetime average
cumulative losses for 2006's quarterly vintages of RMBS set
forth in a recent Moody's Special Report, "Moody's Updates Loss
Projections for 2006 Subprime Loans."  This report illustrates
average loss results for the 2006 quarterly vintages under five
distinct loss projection scenarios.  Moody's explained that it
will utilise the range of loss projections set forth in
Scenarios 2 and 3 based on deal performance and quarterly
vintage to modify its prior assumptions of the expected loss
inputs when monitoring ABS CDO ratings.

Moody's will continue to monitor all deals with exposure to US
subprime RMBS, and will take further actions in respect of all
CDOs placed under review for downgrade once the extent of actual
downgrades to US RMBS vintages becomes known.

These rating actions are:

LOGAN CDO: Moody's Junks Ratings on Six Note Classes
----------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded six classes of notes issued
by Logan CDO III Limited and a related Royal Bank of Canada
(London Branch) super senior swap.  The super senior swap rating
remains on review for further downgrade.  These rating actions
are a response to a credit deterioration in the underlying
portfolio.  This transaction is a managed synthetic CDO
referencing approximately 46% CDOs of high yield exposures, 28%
of CDOs of ABS and 20% of US RMBS.  The portfolio contains the
2005, 2006, and 2007 vintages.

Moody's announced on Feb. 4, 2008 that it is revising its
expected loss assumptions which are used for surveillance of
ratings of ABS CDOs holding subprime RMBS, specifically of the
2006 vintage.  Moody's stated that for purposes of monitoring
its ratings of ABS CDOs with exposure to 2006 subprime RMBS, it
will rely on certain projections of the lifetime average
cumulative losses for 2006's quarterly vintages of RMBS set
forth in a recent Moody's Special Report, "Moody's Updates Loss
Projections for 2006 Subprime Loans."  This report illustrates
average loss results for the 2006 quarterly vintages under five
distinct loss projection scenarios.  Moody's explained that it
will utilise the range of loss projections set forth in
Scenarios 2 and 3 based on deal performance and quarterly
vintage to modify its prior assumptions of the expected loss
inputs when monitoring ABS CDO ratings.

Moody's will continue to monitor all deals with exposure to US
subprime RMBS and ABS CDOs, and will take further actions in
respect of all CDOs placed under review for downgrade once the
extent of actual downgrades to US RMBS and ABS CDO vintages
becomes known.

These rating actions are:

TATA MOTORS: Moody's Cuts Rating to Ba2 on JLR Acquisition
----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has downgraded the corporate family
rating of Tata Motors Ltd  to Ba2 from Ba1 following the
announcement that it has completed the acquisition of Jaguar
Land Rover.  This rating action completes the rating review
initiated in January 2008 when TML was named the preferred buyer
for the JLR brands.  The rating outlook is negative.

"The rating change reflects the considerable challenges that TML
will face in successfully integrating such a large operation,
which only recently turned profitable, and the immediate impact
on TML's financial profile," says Chris Park, a Moody's
VP/Senior Analyst.  "At the same time, TML's future consolidated
performance will be predicated on whether JLR can both sustain
its improved profitability and contribute positively to TML,"
says Park.

The Ba2 rating continues to be underpinned by the strong market
position that TML commands in the commercial vehicle business
and in the low- and mid-end passenger vehicle segments in the
fast-growing Indian market.  It maintains high historical EBIT
margin, averaging over 10%, and compares favorably with its
global peers.

However, the acquisition of JLR will expose it to new product
categories as well as to broader geographies, areas in which TML
has limited experience. This acquisition also comes at a time
when there is intense competition and rising cost pressure in
TML's domestic market. Furthermore, there are inherent
challenges with any major M&A transactions. This deal therefore
raises the immediate business risk profile of TML.

In the long term this acquisition could elevate TML's status
from a major Indian player to a global automobile manufacturer,
enlarge its operating scale, provide access to long-established
brands, improve its technology base, and broaden its product
range. Nonetheless, the uncertainty in the near to medium term
is high.

The US$3 billion bridge loan is expected to be refinanced by up
to US$2.2 billion of equity and equity-linked instrument,
whereas it was US$1 billion previously. The successful
completion of this exercise could result in a more conservative
capital structure and lower gearing. The higher equity base and
lower debt level will allow the company to better withstand
uncertainties related to the integration of JLR and its future
performance, as well as TML's challenges in the domestic market.

In view of the expansion and investment plan for TML and
contingent requirements for JLR, the overall debt requirements
will nevertheless high. Moody's notes in this context that
support for the rating at the Ba2 level comes from an
expectation that TML will retain strong access to the Indian
banking system as part of the broader Tata group.

The rating outlook is negative reflecting the refinancing risk
faced by TML for the bridge loans for the JLR acquisition, its
weaker financial profile, the integration risks it faces and the
uncertainty of JLR's performance under its new owner and amidst
the slowing down of car sales in the US and European markets."

The rating could revert to stable if the US$3 billion bridge
loan is successfully reduced by the planned US$2.2 billion of
equity issuance on terms that make these instruments
predominantly equity like in nature and if appropriate long term
debt funding for the remainder of the bridge loan is obtained.
This would also depend on the operating performance of JLR or
TML in the Indian domestic market being in line with
expectations with no obvious deterioration occurring especially
at JLR.

The rating would experience downward pressure if TML faces major
disappointments in product launches and expansion; if it
undertakes further aggressive capex and/or overseas expansion
plans; if there is a material deterioration in the Indian motor
industry's fundamentals and/or contribution from JLR . Financial
indicators that Moody's would consider for a downgrade include
consolidated Debt/EBITDA exceeding 4.5x on a sustainable basis.

A failure to effectively term out the bridge loan could also
create negative rating pressure.

Tata Motors Ltd, incorporated in 1945, is India's largest
manufacturer of commercial vehicles and second largest
manufacturer of passenger vehicles. Its products include light,
medium and heavy commercial vehicles (trucks, pick-ups and
buses), utility vehicles and cars. TML is listed on the Bombay
Stock Exchange, the National Stock Exchange of India and New
York Stock Exchange. It was ultimately 33.4% owned by the Tata
Group as of December 2007.


UKLI LTD: Administrators Advise Investors to Seek Refund
--------------------------------------------------------
Joint administrators of UKLI Ltd. gave an update and advised
investors to return the land they bought from the company and
seek refund.

Lee Manning, joint administrator from Deloitte, commented, "We
have written to around 4,500 investors who bought land from UKLI
to advise them of their rights to return the land to the company
and to seek a refund from it, to the extent that funds are
available.  The letter also gives further information on what
will happen next.  We will be inviting all investors with UKLI
to a creditors meeting in due course."

Lee Manning and Carlton Siddle of Deloitte & Touche LLP were
appointed joint administrators of the company on April 22, 2008.

UKLI was involved in 'landbanking', the purchase of large areas
of undeveloped land which were then subdivided into plots and
sold on to private investors, with UKLI retaining some of the
land itself.  UKLI would then seek to gain planning permission
on the sites although, to date, planning permission has not been
obtained on any site.

The circumstances leading to the administration followed a
petition to wind the Company up by the Financial Services
Authority, on the grounds of public interest as UKLI had
operated as a collective investment scheme without FSA
authorization.

At the time of the administration, the company employed 80
staff, mainly engaged in selling land, who have since been made
redundant.

Deloitte & Touche LLP -- http://www.deloitte.com/-- provides   
audit, tax, consulting and corporate finance services through
more than 9,000 people in 21 locations.  The group is the United
Kingdom member firm of Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu, a Swiss Verein
whose member firms are separate and independent legal entities.

*Those corporate names that have experienced a significant notch
downgrade as well as being highly referenced within European
synthetic CDOs.  NR—Not rated.
  
For those transactions that have been on CreditWatch negative
for longer than 90 days, where we have either not received
material levels of information or relative portfolio credit
quality has not improved since the CreditWatch placement to a
level sufficient to affirm the rating, we have modeled recovery
rates in accordance with our criteria and assessed portfolio
quality based on its credit quality today.
  
These rating actions and the CreditWatch updates follow two
reviews.  The first review was of the CreditWatch placements
made on May 15, 2008.  The second review was of the ratings on
tranches that have been on CreditWatch negative for more than 90
days.
  
Where SROC (synthetic rated overcollateralization) is less than
100%, scenarios are run that project the current portfolio 90
days into the future, assuming no asset rating migration. Where
this projection indicates that the SROC would return to a level
above 100% at that time, the rating is maintained, but placed on
CreditWatch negative.  If, on the other hand, the projection
indicates that the SROC would remain below 100%, the rating is
immediately lowered.

* Moody's Takes Rating Action on Eight CDO Tranches
---------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service took rating action on approximately
EUR2.7 billion of CDO tranches.

These rating actions are a response to credit deterioration in
the underlying portfolios.  The transactions, managed by KBC
Financial Products, all have underlying portfolios which consist
of corporate names, US RMBS, CMBS, and CDO of ABS among other
assets.

Moody's announced on Feb. 4, 2008 that it is revising its
expected loss assumptions which are used for surveillance of
ratings of ABS CDOs holding subprime RMBS, specifically of the
2006 vintage.  Moody's stated that for purposes of monitoring
its ratings of ABS CDOs with exposure to 2006 subprime RMBS, it
will rely on certain projections of the lifetime average
cumulative losses for 2006's quarterly vintages of RMBS set
forth in a recent Moody's Special Report, "Moody's Updates Loss
Projections for 2006 Subprime Loans."  This report illustrates
average loss results for the 2006 quarterly vintages under five
distinct loss projection scenarios.  Moody's explained that it
will utilise the range of loss projections set forth in
Scenarios 2 and 3 based on deal performance and quarterly
vintage to modify its prior assumptions of the expected loss
inputs when monitoring ABS CDO ratings.

Moody's will continue to monitor all deals with exposure to US
subprime RMBS, and will take further actions in respect of all
CDOs placed under review for downgrade once the extent of actual
downgrades to US RMBS vintages becomes known.

These rating actions are:

                            *********

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

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

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

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