KREMIKOVTZI AD: Sofia Court Defers Insolvency Ruling to End July
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Sofia City Court postponed until the end of July 2008, a
decision on whether to declare Kremikovtzi AD insolvent, Mark
Herlihy writes for Bloomberg News,  citing ArcelorMittal vice-
president Volker Schwich.

Mr. Schwich said the postponement would further delay
ArcelorMittal's plan to acquire Kremikovtzi.

As previously reported in the TCR-Europe, ArcelorMittal will
only acquire Kremikovtzi after it is legally declared bankrupt

Arcelor executives met with trade union leaders to show their
plans for Kremikovtzi.  Arcelor also submitted its takeover
plan, which proposed a short-term loan for working capital and
wages, to Bulgarian economy minister Petar Dimitrov.

Arcelor was ready to invest US$150 million as working capital
and a further US$30 million for wages.  Arcelor then intends to
see through the insolvency proceedings of Kremikovtzi and take
charge of the company after all creditor claims are paid, the
report said.

As previously reported in the TCR-Europe, a Bulgarian court on
April 30, 2008, appointed administrators at Kremikovtzi AD in
relation with the steel mill's deteriorating financial position,
published reports say.

Headquartered in Sofia, Bulgaria, Kremikovtzi AD --
http://www.kremikovtzi.com/-- is a single-site steel producer
in Bulgaria that reported BGN896 million in revenues in 2006.
It explores and produces iron and ore fields.

                       *     *     *

Kremikovtzi AD carries Moody's Investors Service corporate
family rating of Caa3 with a developing outlook.

YRC WORLDWIDE: Updates Second Quarter 2008 Earnings Guidance
------------------------------------------------------------
YRC Worldwide Inc. last week updated second quarter 2008
earnings guidance to a range of US$0.55 to US$0.65 per share,
which now includes net curtailment gains of US$0.34 per share
and a charge for a significant accident of US$0.09 per share.

Excluding the curtailment gains and the accident charge, second
quarter 2008 earnings from core operations are expected to be
consistent with previously issued guidance of US$0.30 to US$0.40
per share.

"Our operational execution has been strong, and we are building
momentum in spite of the challenging environment," stated Bill
Zollars, Chairman, President and CEO of YRC Worldwide.  "The
cost of fuel creates macroeconomic concerns as we look forward.
However, of those areas within our control, we remain confident
that we are on the right track to enhance customer value as we
implement network improvements at the National companies,
increase the efficiency and profitability of the Regional
companies and execute solidly at YRC Logistics," Zollars
continued.

The net curtailment gains relate to changes in certain
retirement plans as the company continues its progress toward a
common employee benefits platform across its multiple operating
units.

removed the ratings from CreditWatch, where they had been placed
with negative implications on Feb. 21, 2008.  The outlook is
negative.  The ratings had been placed on CreditWatch because of
heightened concerns over the company's refinancing risk,
earnings performance, and liquidity position over the next year,

AEI: Moody's Rates Proposed US$250MM Sr. Unsecured Notes at B2
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has affirmed the B1 Corporate Family
Rating for AEI and assigned a B2 rating to AEI's proposed
issuance of US$250MM senior unsecured notes due in 2018.  In
addition, Moody's has affirmed AEI's senior secured credit
facilities rating of Ba3.  The outlook remains stable.

The rating affirmations reflect Moody's expectation that AEI
will use the proceeds from the proposed offering for debt
repayment and to fund new investment opportunities.  The notes
are expected to be issued in late June 2008.  The B2 rating for
the notes reflect their low tier standing as the new unsecured
notes are contractually subordinated to a much larger issue of
US$968MM senior secured bank term loans due in March of 2014 and
US$500MM of senior secured bank revolving facilities due in
March 2012.

The rating for the senior unsecured notes was determined using
Moody's Loss Given Default model.  Based on AEI's B1 Corporate
Family Rating and Probability of Default Ratings of B1, and as a
result of the small size of the proposed offering relative to
the existing senior secured facilities, the LGD model would
suggest a rating of B3.  The B2 rating assigned reflects Moody's
understanding that over time, the company intends to shift its
parent company debt more toward senior unsecured notes and to
reduce the percentage of secured credit facilities in its
capital structure.  The rating also reflects Moody's view, based
on the diversity of AEI's portfolio and the moderate amount of
leverage currently employed at the operating companies, that in
a default scenario and possible sale of individual operating
companies that there would likely be excess collateral available
to the senior unsecured note holders.

AEI's B1 CFR also reflects its moderately leveraged consolidated
capital structure and the structural subordination of its parent
level recourse debt to a significant amount of non-recourse debt
at its operating companies.  Moody's views the structural
subordination constraints as somewhat mitigated by the
diversification provided by AEI's operating subsidiaries and by
the stable and predictable cash flows provided by operations in
various other countries, including Colombia, Guatemala,
Dominican Republic, Poland, Turkey and the Philippines, in
addition to Brazil.  Moody's notes, however, the company is
still in the early stages of its formation and is considering
making additional investments in countries such as China and
Peru, in which they have recently entered and have a limited
operating history.

Over the forecast horizon, we expect AEI to generate positive
free cash flow and to maintain consolidated FFO to debt coverage
of approximately 20%.  The company's ratio of consolidated debt
to total capitalization is currently about 59% and is projected
to increase slightly as we expect the company will begin some
greenfield construction projects. A  number of the company's key
projects are also currently lightly levered at the operating
company level.  Under reasonable scenarios the company could
withstand the nationalization of other projects without a
materially adverse effect on the parent's credit profile, as
long as they are not a primary source of cash reliance for AEI's
debt service requirements and investment needs and the company
is able to at least recover its costs.

We also note that approximately 45% of the AEI's 2007 cash
received from subsidiaries were supported by businesses with
revenues that are either US dollar denominated or US dollar-
linked, which m itigates to some degree the volatility of
currency risk. Additionally, the liquidity position at both the
group and parent level is adequate, sustained by strong
operating cash flows at the operating company level, the
aggregate US$500 million revolving credit facility, and cash on
hand.

Ratings/Assessments assigned:

AEI

    -- Senior Unsecured Notes due in 2018—B2 (LGD5, 75%)

Ratings affirmed/Assessments revised:

AEI

    -- Corporate Family Rating -- B1
    -- Probability of Default Rating -- B1
    -- Senior secured credit facilities -- Ba3 (LGD3, 34%)

Incorporated in the Cayman Islands, AEI is an international
holding company of investment interests in a globally
diversified portfolio of 37 companies that engage in natural gas
distribution, transportation, and services; power generation and
distribution, and retail fuel.  AEI's businesses are located
within 19 countries, which are primarily speculative grade
emerging market economies.  In aggregate, the group's power
infrastructure serves the power needs of approximately 6 million
customers worldwide.  A wholly owned subsidiary of AEI, AEI
Services LLC has offices in Houston, TX.

ROSEVROBANK: Moody's Puts B1 Rating to Loan Participation Notes
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has assigned a rating of B1 to the
Loan Participation Notes ("LPNs") issued on a limited recourse
basis by Rosevro Finance Limited for the sole purpose of funding
a loan to Russia's Rosevrobank.  The amount of the issue is
US$80 million.  The total amount of LPNs that could be issued
under the programme is US$500 million.  The outlook for the
rating is stable.

The holders of the notes will rely for repayment solely and
exclusively on the ability of Rosevrobank to make payments under
the loan agreement.  Rosevrobank is currently rated B1/Not Prime
for long- and short-term foreign and local currency deposits,
and E+ for financial strength.  All of Rosevrobank's ratings
carry a stable outlook.

The obligations of Rosevrobank to make payments under the loan
agreement will rank at all times at least pari-passu with the
claims of all other unsecured creditors of the borrower, except
for those whose claims are given preference under bankruptcy,
insolvency, liquidation or similar laws of general application.
Moody's notes that Russia is, in general, a country that gives
preference to individual depositors, hence potentially reducing
the recovery rates for bondholders, especially if such
individual deposits were to represent a sizeable proportion of
the bank's liabilities in the event of liquidation.

According to the terms and conditions of the loan agreement,
Rosevrobank shall maintain full compliance with prudential
supervisory ratios and other requirements of the Central Bank of
Russia.  The bank must also comply with a number of other
covenants such as negative pledge and limitations on any
reorganisation, disposals and transactions with affiliates.

The loan agreement, the LPNs and the trust deed will be governed
by, and construed in accordance with, English law, and the
courts of England will have exclusive jurisdiction to settle any
dispute arising from or connected with the loan agreement.

Headquartered in Moscow, Rosevrobank reported total consolidated
assets of US$2.104 billion in accordance with IFRS as at
December 31, 2007.  Rosevro Finance Limited is a special purpose
vehicle domiciled in Cyprus that was established for this
transaction.

SEVERSTAL OAO: Fitch Hikes IDR to BB with Stable Outlook
--------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has upgraded OAO Severstal's Long-term Issuer
Default and senior unsecured ratings to 'BB' from 'BB-', and its
National Long-term rating to 'AA-(rus)' from 'A+(rus)'.
Following the upgrade, the Outlooks on the Long-term IDR and
National Long-term rating are now Stable.  At the same time,
Severstal's Short-term IDR is affirmed at 'B'.

This upgrade reflects Severstal's continued adherence to its
stated corporate governance practices over the past 12 months,
and indications (including from discussions with independent
members of the company's board) of positive developments in day-
to-day corporate governance practices.  On April 20, 2007, Fitch
had revised the Outlook to Positive from Stable following the
company's implementation of various corporate governance
improvements following its IPO in later 2006; however, at that
time it had noted the lack of a long track record of adherence
to these new policies.

Severstal's ratings continue to be underpinned by the strong
operational profile of its core Russian operations which benefit
from significant scale, a higher value-added product mix and
self-sufficiency in key steel-making raw materials.  Over the
past five years Severstal has expanded its presence in
international markets with significant investments in Western
Europe and the US.  Fitch recognizes the benefits of enhanced
scale, and geographic and product diversification which this
strategy has provided.  However, despite the implementation of
cost-cutting and operational efficiency programs, the company
has struggled to improve the performance of the assets under its
Severstal North America division.  In fiscal year ending 2007
this division generated an EBITDA margin of only 1.2% (although
this was in part due to the planned reline of one of its blast
furnaces).  Results from these operations are expected to
improve significantly in 2008, and based on Fitch estimates are
likely to increase to an EBITDA margin of approximately 10%.

The ratings also reflect Severstal's continuing high
profitability relative to international peers' (fiscal year
ending 2007 consolidated EBITDAR margin of 24%) - albeit lower
in percentage terms than domestic Russian peers such as NLMK
('BB+'/'B'/Stable) and MMK ('BB'/'B'/Stable).  They also factor
in Severstal's conservative capital structure with an average
adjusted net leverage over the past four years of 0.3x per
annum.  Fitch believes that Severstal's management remains
committed to prudent financial policies. Further bolt-on
acquisitions to the company's international operations are,
however, likely to see leverage rise above historical levels,
although this is expected to remain consistent with the 'BB'
rating level.  Over the next 12-18 months, a strong demand-and-
price environment for steel within Russia should continue to
support Severstal's overall financial profile.  However, rising
input costs, including for energy and labour, are likely to
limit margin improvement.

Liquidity at end of first quarter of 2008 remained healthy with
US$2.4 billion of cash and equivalents, plus approximately
US$1.4 billion of unused credit lines.  Liquidity should remain
strong for 2008 despite recent announced acquisitions (e.g.
Sparrows Point), with on-balance sheet cash of around US$1
billion, based on Fitch forecasts.

The Stable Outlook reflects Fitch's view that Severstal's scale,
diversification and the low-operating cost position of its core
Russian operations will enable the company to maintain operating
margins and a capital structure that are commensurate with its
ratings.

Severstal is the largest vertically integrated steel producer in
Russia by volume (including production at its international
facilities) with crude steel production of 17.5 million tonnes
in 2007.  For fiscal year ending 2007 the company generated
revenues of US$15.2 billion, EBITDAR of US$3.7 billion and had
an adjusted net leverage (adj. net debt/EBITDAR) of 0.3x.

TDA CREDIFIMO 1: S&P Junks Rating on EUR18.7 Million Notes
----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its preliminary
credit ratings to the mortgage-backed floating-rate notes to be
issued by TDA CREDIFIMO 1, Fondo de Titulizacion de Activos.

In this transaction, the originator— Credifimo, E.F.C., S.A.U.
(Credifimo)—will securitize part of its growing residential
mortgage-lending book.  The loans, mainly originated in
Catalonia, Andalucía, and Madrid are secured by first-ranking
liens, with a small percentage of loans in the pool secured by
second-ranking liens (1.65%).

The credit enhancement is adequate for the preliminary ratings.
The cash reserve (which will be fully funded at the issue date)
and the excess spread of the pool will be available to cover any
interest or principal shortfalls.

There will be an interest rate cap agreement, which will
partially mitigate the risk of an increase in interest rates.

UKRSIBBANK: Fitch Assigns BB- Ratings to US$2 Billion Loans
-----------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has assigned Ukrainian MTN Finance Plc's upcoming
US$2 billion LPN program an expected Long-term 'BB-' rating for
notes with maturities in excess of one year and an expected
Short-term 'B' rating for notes with maturities of less than one
year.  The notes are to be used solely for financing loans to
Ukraine's Joint-Stock Commercial Innovation Bank "UkrSibbank"
(Long-term Issuer Default 'BB-' with Stable Outlook, Short-term
IDR 'B', Long-term local currency IDR 'BB', Individual 'D',
Support '3' and National Long-term 'AAA(ukr)' with Stable
Outlook).  At the same time, Fitch has assigned an expected
'BB-' rating to the program's upcoming Series 1 issue.  Fitch
understands that the issue is expected to be a senior bond
maturing in excess of one year.

The final ratings of the program and the issue are contingent
upon the receipt of final documentation conforming materially to
information already received.

Ukrainian MTN Finance Plc, a UK-domiciled special purpose
vehicle, will only pay noteholders principal and interest
received from UkrSib.  Issues under the program will be rated
separately.  The SPV's claims under the loan agreement will rank
at least equally with the claims of other senior unsecured
creditors of UkrSib, save those whose claims are preferred by
any bankruptcy, insolvency, liquidation or similar laws of
general application.  Under Ukrainian law, the claims of retail
depositors rank above those of other senior unsecured creditors.
At end of 2007, retail deposits and current accounts made up 19%
of UkrSib's total liabilities, according to the bank's audited
IFRS accounts.

The program stipulates that the SPV may enter into a swap
agreement should notes be issued in currency other than US$.
Fitch notes that in the case of default by a swap counterparty,
noteholders bear foreign exchange risk.  The Series 1 issue is
not expected to contain a swap arrangement.

The agreement contains a number of covenants, including the
bank's full compliance with capital adequacy requirements of the
National bank of Ukraine, with the minimum regulatory capital
ratio currently being 10%.  Importantly, the noteholders will
have a put option should BNP Paribas and its subsidiaries cease
to own, in aggregate, in excess of 50% of voting shares of
UkrSib.

According to the National bank of Ukraine, UkrSib was the third-
largest bank by assets at end on 2007.  UkrSib is a universal
bank, focusing on corporate, retail and investment banking.  The
bank operates the fourth-largest nationwide branch network,
consisting of over 1,000 banking units and outlets.  A
controlling 51% stake is held by France-based BNP Paribas (Long-
term IDR 'AA' with Stable Outlook, Short-term IDR 'F1+',
Individual 'A/B', Support '1' and Support Rating floor 'A-'),
with the remaining 49% controlled by two Ukrainian shareholders,
Oleksandr Yaroslavskyy and Ernest Galiyev, who also own several
large industrial enterprises in the country.


VAB BANK: Moody's Revises Outlook on B2 Rating to Stable
--------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service changed to stable from positive the
outlook on the bank's B2 long-term local and foreign currency
deposit and debt ratings of VAB Bank, whilst VAB's E+ financials
strength rating and Not Prime short-term local and foreign
currency deposit ratings were affirmed.  Concurrently, Moody's
affirmed the bank's long-term national scale rating of A1.ua.
The NSR carries no specific outlook.

According to Moody's, the B2/Not Prime/E+ global scale ratings
reflect VAB's global default and loss expectation, while the
A1.ua NSR reflects the standing of the bank's credit quality
relative to its domestic peers.

The reversal of outlook to stable reflects the deterioration in
the bank's profitability and efficiency indicators over the last
year due to substantial once off retail developing costs, as
well as lower than expected progress in improving the market
positions in some customer segments.  Although the bank's
investment into regional and segmental diversification of its
business profile could bring greater economies of scale and
scope Moody's does not expect VAB's performance to strengthen
significantly in short-to-medium term, especially taking into
account further infrastructure improvement costs and tightening
price competition in the Ukrainan banking market -- the latter
could also potentially lead to some erosion of the bank's market
position.  The bank's outlook on debt and deposit ratings was
originally changed to positive on 4 May 2007 following the
implementation of JDA/BFSR methodologies for Ukrainian banks.

A change of outlook on VAB's global scale ratings to positive
may be driven by the reversal of the reduction in the bank's
profitability and efficiency indicators, and if the bank manages
to keep its capitalisation as well as asset quality sound going
forward together with gradual improvements in its franchise.

This could happen, inter alia, if the implementation of risk
management and IT solutions was successful to reduce the costs
of operations and further investments were to be more controlled
in connection with respective revenue streams.

Headquartered in Kyiv (Ukraine), as at Dec. 31, 2007, VAB Bank
reported IFRS consolidated total assets of US$1.22 billion
(includes balances of start-up subsidiaries operating in
financial services segments) and net loss amounted to US$2.8
million for the year then ended, while at the same time the bank
demonstrated stand-alone IFRS total assets of US$1.21 billion as
at year-end 2007 and net income of US$1.8 million for 2007.

BANTRY BAY: S&P Junks Ratings on 3 Notes Classes; Keeps Watch
-------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered and kept on
CreditWatch with negative implications its credit ratings on the
class A-1, A-2, and A-3 notes issued by Bantry Bay CDO I PLC.

The class B, C, and D notes remain on CreditWatch negative.

Bantry Bay CDO I closed on May 3, 2007 and is a static
collateralized debt obligation of CDOs transaction.

The underlying portfolio has experienced negative rating
migration, as it contains U.S. CDOs of ABS that have been placed
on CreditWatch negative and/or have had their ratings lowered.
This has led to an increase in the scenario default rates we
assume for different rating scenarios.

The rating actions also reflect revisions to our recovery rate
assumptions for certain CDOs.

The revision has led to a significant fall in the tranches'
breakeven default rates(BDRs), as estimated in  our cash flow
analysis.  As a result, current credit enhancement is not
sufficient to support existing ratings levels.

On Dec. 14, 2007, all rated notes were placed on CreditWatch
negative to reflect the credit deterioration being experienced
in the underlying portfolio.  The CreditWatch placements were
resolved and all the rated notes were downgraded on Dec. 31,
2007.

On April 15, 2008, the notes were downgraded further due to
ongoing credit deterioration in the underlying portfolio.

CHRYSLER LLC: S&P Places Ratings on Negative Watch
--------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services on Friday said it is placing
its corporate credit ratings on the three U.S. automakers,
General Motors Corp., Ford Motor Co., and Chrysler LLC, on
CreditWatch with negative implications, citing the need to
evaluate the  financial damage being inflicted by deteriorating
U.S. industry conditions -- largely as a result of high gasoline
prices.

Included in the CreditWatch placement are the finance units Ford
Motor Credit Co. and DaimlerChrysler Financial Services Americas
LLC, as well as GM's 49%-owned finance affiliate GMAC LLC.

"We have renewed concerns about all three automakers' future
cash outflows in light of the prospects for U.S. sales for the
rest of 2008 and into 2009," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst Robert Schulz.  The erosion of demand for SUVs and
pickups has been particularly troubling.  Although these
segments have been weak for some time, the exodus of demand that
began in April, caused by escalating gas prices and consumer
preferences for smaller vehicles, is gathering speed.  Despite
concerted, and in some cases successful, efforts to bolster
their line-ups of smaller vehicles and reduce costs, all three
Michigan-based automakers still rely on light trucks for a
disproportionate share of profitability and cash flow.

The companies' difficulty in anticipating the pace of market
deterioration was reflected today in Ford's announcement that it
expects to use an even larger amount of cash this year and next
than it announced previously, its second negative guidance
revision in a month.  Ford plans to use more than US$16 billion
of cash between 2007 and 2009 in its automotive operations,
including the cost of employee separation programs, unless the
economy rebounds next year.  The company also said this year's
pretax results will be worse than last year's, announced further
light-truck production cuts and shift reductions, and delayed
this fall's launch of the F-150 pickup by two months to clear
existing inventory.  Also worrisome is the dire state of
the vehicle finance market. Ford said Friday it expects Ford
Motor Credit to report a pretax loss for the year (before any
infusion from Ford) caused by weak used (residual) values,
primarily for light trucks.

Although GM and Chrysler have not publicly detailed their
expectations for cash use, all of the factors behind Ford's
weaker guidance also apply to the other U.S.-based automakers.
In addition to weak sales and adverse product mix shifts, the
list of challenges also includes less receptive capital
markets, higher costs for steel and other raw materials, lower
residual values that hurt profitability at the finance units and
reduce consumers' trade-in power, and increasing cash needs for
restructuring efforts.

S&P believes all three companies currently have ample liquidity
for at least the rest of 2008 as measured by cash balances,
available bank facilities, and in some cases unencumbered
assets.  But S&P also believes deteriorating industry
fundamentals could reduce liquidity to undesirable levels by the
second half of 2009.

As part of S&P's reviews, S&P will assess all three companies'
strategies for addressing the weak sales and shifts in demand
away from light trucks and maintaining liquidity at satisfactory
levels through 2009.

financial leases and loans secured on aircraft and associated
aircraft collateral.  Merrill Lynch International Bank entered
into a hedging swap with Intesa Sanpaolo under which it sells
protection on a reference portfolio of up to US$650 million.
All financial lease or loan obligations relate to the financing
or refinancing of aircrafts.

Fitch used its Portfolio Credit Model to determine if the credit
enhancement levels were still appropriate for the notes.  Fitch
also applied the same methodology set at closing with regard to
the depreciation of the aircraft.  However, Fitch's calculation
of the recovery rate takes into account the current high oil
prices and the pressure that such prices could put on the
airline sector in general and aircraft values in particular.

The agency has calculated, on a loan-to-loan basis, an
individual recovery rate by comparing the aircrafts' collateral
values to the outstanding balances of the relevant reference
obligations at a specific point in time.  This specific point in
time is now determined by the credit risk of the obligor
airline.

A significant number of the aircraft securing the Da Vinci
Synthetic plc obligations is more exposed to fuel price
increases, as they are less fuel-efficient than other models,
leading to possible deterioration in their market value.
Therefore, Fitch is concerned that the cost of aviation fuel
could influence the proceeds of realisation of relevant
aircraft. Fitch took this eventuality into consideration by
comparing the base value - a theoretical value assuming an open,
unrestricted and stable market with balanced supply and demand -
of the aircraft securing the reference obligation with the
current market value of such an aircraft.  Fitch uses the lowest
of both valuations to calculate the recovery rates.  Recovery
rates have been stressed under all rating scenarios, assuming
market value declines of the underlying aircraft.

The change in the calculation of the recovery rate and the use
of Fitch's Portfolio Credit Model has increased the minimum
credit enhancement level for all classes of notes and therefore
negatively affects the ratings of the Class A and C notes.
While the minimum credit enhancement for the Class B notes has
been raised as well, the current credit enhancement for this
specific class of notes is still sufficient. The Outlook for the
Class B notes has consequently been changed to Negative from
Stable.

FGIC CORP: Moody's Lowers Ratings to B1; Outlook is Negative
------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has downgraded to B1, from Baa3, the
insurance financial strength ratings of the main operating
subsidiaries of FGIC Corporation, including Financial Guaranty
Insurance Company and FGIC UK Limited (collectively "FGIC").

In the same rating action, Moody's has also downgraded the
senior debt ratings of the holding company, FGIC Corporation to
Caa2 from B3 and the contingent capital securities ratings of
Grand Central Capital Trusts I-IV to B3 from B2.

The rating action concludes a review for possible downgrade that
was initiated on March 31, 2008, and reflects the company's
severely impaired financial flexibility and the company's
proximity to minimum regulatory capital requirements relative to
our estimations of expected case losses.  The rating action also
considers the likelihood that FGIC's previously announced
restructuring plan will ultimately result in the company
retaining the higher-risk portion of the insured portfolio
without the premiums associated with its lower-risk business.
The outlook for the rating is negative.

Moody's ratings on securities that are guaranteed or "wrapped"
by a financial guarantor are generally maintained at a level
equal to the higher of a) the rating of the guarantor or b) the
published underlying rating.  However, as FGIC's ratings are
downgraded below the investment grade level, and reflecting
current rating agency policy, Moody's will withdraw ratings on
FGIC-wrapped securities for which there is no published
underlying rating.  Should the guarantor's rating subsequently
move back into the investment grade range or should the agency
subsequently publish the underlying rating, Moody's would
reinstate the rating to the wrapped instruments.

The B1 insurance financial strength rating reflects Moody's view
that FGIC has limited cushion above its regulatory capital
requirement given uncertainty surrounding future loss
development on its mortgage exposures.  FGIC has recorded
approximately US$1.8 billion in cumulative statutory loss
reserves (net of anticipated recoveries), much of which is
associated with its mortgage-related exposures, primarily from
second lien mortgage backed securities and asset-backed CDOs
(ABS CDOs). FGIC's statutory surplus at 1Q2008 was US$366
million, which is approximately US$300 million above the
statutory minimum regulatory requirement.  Moody's has estimated
losses on FGIC's insured portfolio of residential mortgage-
backed securities that are significantly higher than the
company's reserves for these transactions.

The rating agency added that if FGIC's capital were to fall
below the regulatory minimum, there could be material adverse
effects on the firm's financial condition.  A meaningful portion
of FGIC's credit exposure was written in Credit Default Swap
(CDS) form, and contains a clause that exposes the firm to mark
to market termination in the event of insolvency.  A breach of
minimum regulatory capital requirement heightens the risk of
regulatory intervention, which could trigger a market value
termination of the CDS contracts.

Moody's has re-estimated expected and stress loss projections on
FGIC's insured portfolio, focusing on the company's mortgage-
related exposures, as well as other sectors of the portfolio
potentially vulnerable to deterioration in the current
environment.  Based on Moody's revised assessment of the risks
in FGIC's pro-forma residual portfolio (assuming the completion
of the company's restructuring initiatives), estimated stress-
case losses would approximate US$6.2 billion at the Aaa rating
threshold.  This compares to Moody's estimate of FGIC's total
claims paying resources of approximately US$3.7 billion, a
capital position more consistent with a rating in the Ba
category.

Moody's said that the downgrade of FGIC Corporation's senior
unsecured debt to Caa2 reflects the operating company's
inability, without regulatory approval, to upstream dividends to
the holding company to service debt.

According to Moody's, the negative outlook on FGIC's ratings
reflects continued uncertainty regarding losses that may arise
on the insured portfolio and attendant risks that could occur if
loses develop adversely, including the potential for regulatory
intervention.  The negative outlook also considers the
uncertainty regarding the ultimate impact of FGIC's potential
restructuring efforts on its residual portfolio.

FORD MOTOR: Makes Further Reductions on Truck Production
--------------------------------------------------------
Ford Motor Company said Friday it is making further reductions
to its North American truck production plan while adding more
small cars, crossovers and fuel-efficient powertrains, as the
company responds to the continued deterioration in the U.S.
business environment and the accelerated shift away from large
trucks and SUVs.

“As gasoline prices average more than US$4 a gallon and
consumers worry about the weak U.S. economy, we see June
industry-wide auto sales slowing further and demand for large
trucks and SUVs at one of the lowest levels in decades,” said
Ford President and CEO Alan Mulally.   “Ford has taken decisive
action to respond to this accelerating shift in customer demand
away from large trucks and SUVs to smaller cars and crossovers,
and we will continue to act swiftly moving forward.”

Ford now expects U.S. industry volume in 2008 – including medium
and heavy vehicles – to be between 14.7 million and 15.2 million
units, compared with the previous assumption of 15 million to
15.4 million units.  Accordingly, in the third quarter, Ford now
plans to produce 475,000 vehicles, a reduction of 50,000 units
from previously announced plans and a decline of 25 percent
compared with the 2007 third quarter.  In the fourth quarter,
Ford plans to produce 550,000 to 590,000 units, a reduction of
40,000 units from previously announced plans and a decline of 8
to 14 percent compared with the 2007 fourth quarter.

In parallel, Ford is adjusting the public introduction timing of
the new 2009 Ford F-150 by approximately two months due to the
industry-wide slowdown in the U.S. truck market and the need to
sell down dealer inventory of the current model.  The new F-150
now will go on sale in late fall.

“The new 2009 F-150 raises the bar yet again on capability,
quality and durability, and we know core truck customers are
eagerly awaiting its arrival,” said Mark Fields, Ford’s
President of The Americas.  “Our plan all along has been to
introduce the new F-150 after our dealers had a chance to sell
down inventory of the existing model, and – with the current
slowdown in the marketplace – we decided it was prudent to
adjust the start of public sale for the new truck by about two
months.”

With these actions, Ford said it now is clear that 2008 pre-tax
Automotive results will be worse than 2007, cash outflows to
fund operating losses and restructuring will be greater than
previous guidance and, unless the economy improves, it will be
difficult for Ford to break even companywide on a pre-tax basis
in 2009, excluding special items.  Ford North America still
expects to reduce annual operating costs by about US$5 billion
by the end of 2008 – at constant volume, mix and exchange, and
excluding special items – compared with 2005.

Ford Motor Credit Company now will incur a pre-tax loss this
year – excluding any potential payment related to Ford’s profit
maintenance agreement – primarily due to further weakness in
large truck and SUV auction values.  Ford Credit no longer is
planning a distribution payment to Ford in 2008.

Ford said it will provide more details on changes to its overall
plan when it announces second-quarter financial results in July.
In the meantime, Ford is taking these production actions:

     -- Production of the 2009 F-150 now will begin in August at
        Kansas City Assembly Plant and in September at Dearborn
        Truck.  One shift will be eliminated at both Kansas City
        (from two to one) and Dearborn (from three to two).
        Dearborn Truck will be idled most of the third quarter.


     -- Michigan Truck Plant will be idled for nine consecutive
        weeks beginning the week of June 23, in line with demand
        for the company’s full-size SUVs.

     -- One shift of production will be eliminated at Louisville
        Assembly Plant for mid-size SUVs in the third quarter.

     -- The line speed will be reduced at Kentucky Truck Plant
        for large pickups in the third quarter.

     -- The line speed will be reduced at Chicago Assembly in
        the third quarter for full-size sedans.

     -- Production will wind down at Cuautitlan Assembly Plant
        in Mexico by the end of 2008.  The plant, which now
        produces large pickups, will be retooled for production
        of the new Fiesta small car for North America beginning
        in early 2010.

Ford also is taking these actions to increase capacity in the
third quarter:

     -- Oakville Assembly will add a third shift for production
of the Ford Edge, Lincoln MKX and all-new 2009 Ford Flex
crossovers.

     -- Kansas City Assembly Plant’s line that produces the Ford
        Escape, Escape Hybrid and Mercury Mariner and Mariner
        Hybrid small utility vehicles will add a third shift.

     -- Wayne Assembly Plant’s body and paint shops will add a
        third shift, and the line-speed will be increased for
        final assembly production of the popular Ford Focus
        small car.

Production at Ford’s stamping, engine and transmission plants is
being adjusted in line with the changes in assembly capacity.

“We view the move to smaller, more fuel-efficient vehicles as
permanent, and we are responding to customer demand,” Mulally
said.  “In the near term, we are adjusting production to the
actual demand – increasing small cars and crossovers and
reducing large trucks and SUVs.  For the long term, we are
moving fast to introduce more small cars, crossovers and fuel-
efficient powertrains – including more hybrids – and we will
adjust our manufacturing facilities to match our updated product
lineup.”

Ford said it is uniquely positioned to build on its strength
today as a crossover vehicle leader, while leveraging its small
car expertise in Europe and bringing more of those vehicles to
North America.

In addition to hatchback and sedan versions of the European-
engineered Ford Fiesta small car that goes on sale in North
America in early 2010, Ford is announcing today that four- and
five-door versions of the next-generation European Ford Focus
small car will be produced in North America beginning in late
2010.

The new Focus will be common with Europe, South America and Asia
Pacific and represent the next generation of today’s successful
European Focus.  Excellent fuel economy will be achieved through
new highly efficient direct-injection engine technology and a
new advanced six-speed transmission.

The new Focus and Fiesta – as well as other small cars and
crossovers from Europe – will be part of an unprecedented period
of new Ford product introductions that has only just begun in
North America.  The new Ford Flex crossover and Lincoln MKS
sedan went on sale this month, and the new F-150 goes on sale in
late fall.  New versions of the Ford Fusion, Mercury Milan and
Lincoln MKZ mid-size cars debut late this year, as do all-new
hybrid versions of the Fusion and Milan.

By the end of this year, 70 percent of all Ford, Lincoln and
Mercury products by volume in North America will be new or
significantly upgraded compared with the 2006 models.  By the
end of 2010, 100 percent of the product lineup will be new,
including in 2009 the next-generation Mustang, new fuel-saving
EcoBoost engines and new European Transit Connect.

“We remain absolutely committed to accelerating the development
of the new products that customers want and value,” Mulally
said.  “We sell some of the best smaller cars and utility
vehicles in the world in our profitable European and South
American operations, and our plan is to introduce these same
vehicles in North America as quickly as possible.  This is an
integral part of our plan to leverage our global assets and
achieve our goal of profitable growth.”

FORD MOTOR: Moody's Holds B3 Rating But Says Outlook is Negative
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service affirmed the B3 Corporate Family
Rating and Probability of Default Rating of Ford Motor Company,
but changed the rating outlook to negative from stable.  The
company's Speculative Grade Liquidity rating remains SGL-1.  The
rating outlook for Ford Credit has also been changed to negative
from stable, reflecting parent level concerns and deteriorating
asset quality.  The negative outlook for Ford reflects the
increasingly challenging environment faced by its and the other
domestic auto manufacturers as the outlook for US vehicle demand
falls, and as high fuel costs drive US consumers away from light
trucks and SUVs and toward more fuel efficient vehicles.

As a result of these eroding market fundamentals Ford announced
that:

     1) its automotive performance for 2008 will be worse than
        that of 2007 in which it had a pre-tax loss of
        US$1.8 billion excluding Jaguar and Land Rover, and
        special items;

     2) Ford Credit will incur a pre-tax operating loss for
        2008;

     3) the company is unlikely to achieve break even
        performance during 2009; and

     4) the two-year pace of automotive operating cash burn for
        2008 and 2009 will exceed the previously estimated level
        of US$12 to US$14 billion.

The negative outlook for Ford Credit reflects the business and
ownership connections with Ford and the impact of declining used
vehicle values (in particular, trucks and SUVs) on the firm's
asset quality.  These declining used vehicle values are expected
to result in higher credit costs and additional depreciation
expense at Ford Credit, pressuring operating results. Ford
Credit expects to report a pre-tax loss in 2008, excluding any
potential payment related to Ford's profit maintenance
agreement.  Ford Credit is the beneficiary of a profit support
agreement from Ford, who has indicated that it will take no
distributions from Ford Credit during 2008, in contrast to
previous expectations.  This, in combination with Ford Credit's
committed borrowing facilities, cash flow from short-duration
assets, cash balances, and access to the secured debt markets,
should provide the firm adequate resources to meet short-term
demands on cash.

Ford's operational response to the US shift in consumer demand
includes: reducing production of trucks and SUVs while
increasing the production of cars and crossover vehicles;
extending further buyout offers to hourly workers in order to
reduce manned capacity; delaying the launch of the F-150 truck;
and, introducing many of its successful European small cars and
crossovers to the US market. Despite the prudence of these
initiatives, the massive shift in the production and product
profile being contemplated by Ford is a complex, long-term
undertaking. Consequently, the future pace and degree of success
of these initiatives remain highly uncertain.  An additional
area of uncertainty is the company's ability to build a
reasonable level of profitability for mid-size and small cars in
the US -- classes of vehicles that have historically generated
losses for Ford, and that have had to be priced at significant
discounts relative to comparably equipped vehicles made by
Japanese manufacturers.

Bruce Clark, senior vice president with Moody's said,
"Maintaining adequate liquidity will be one of the most critical
challenges Ford faces as it attempts to reshape its US product
profile and manufacturing base during the next two years."
Clark noted that, "Ford is going to burn a considerable amount
of cash until it adequately expands its fleet of fuel efficient
cars and convinces consumers that these vehicles offer
competitive value relative to Japanese product.  The pace of
cash consumption will also remain high until Ford begins to
harvest the health care cost savings of its new UAW contract in
2010."

At March 31, Ford had a sizable US$40.6 billion liquidity
position that consisted of US$28.7 billion in cash and US$11.9
billion in availability under committed credit facilities.  This
liquidity position was further enhanced by approximately US$2.3
billion in proceeds from the sale of Land Rover and Jaguar.

During 2008 and 2009, Ford's key liquidity requirements will
include the following: operating losses and restructuring
expenditures that could exceed US$14 billion; ongoing minimum
levels of cash required to fund intra-month working capital
requirements that can approximate 5%-6% of revenues in the
automotive OEM sector; debt repayments of approximately US$1.5
billion; UAW-related VEBA contributions of US$2.8 billion;
pension contributions; over US$4 billion in payments to Ford
Motor Credit Company that will bring Ford's subvention payment
terms with its finance operation more in line with industry
norms; and the possibility that the pace of cash outflow could
increase depending on delays in implementing the company's
repositioning efforts and further erosion in the demand
characteristics in the US market.

A key factor supporting Ford's B3 corporate family rating and
SGL-1 liquidity rating is the ample size of the company's
liquidity position relative to the cash requirements it will
likely face during the coming twelve months.  However, Ford will
continue to face a sizable cash burn through 2009. Consequently
the current liquidity cushion will continue to narrow, and the
SGL-1 is unlikely to be sustainable absent any substantial
source of new liquidity.  ver the coming quarters, this
narrowing of Ford's liquidity position will likely contribute to
reductions in the Speculative Grade Liquidity rating and may
also contribute to a review for possible downgrade of the B3
long-term rating.  Moreover, any acceleration in the company's
pace of cash consumption would accelerate downward pressure on
both the SGL and long-term ratings.

Ford Motor Company, headquartered in Dearborn, Mich., is a
leading global automotive manufacturer.


FORD MOTOR: S&P Places Ratings on Negative Watch
------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services on Friday said it is placing
its corporate credit ratings on the three U.S. automakers,
General Motors Corp., Ford Motor Co., and Chrysler LLC, on
CreditWatch with negative implications, citing the need to
evaluate the  financial damage being inflicted by deteriorating
U.S. industry conditions -- largely as a result of high gasoline
prices.

Included in the CreditWatch placement are the finance units Ford
Motor Credit Co. and DaimlerChrysler Financial Services Americas
LLC, as well as GM's 49%-owned finance affiliate GMAC LLC.

"We have renewed concerns about all three automakers' future
cash outflows in light of the prospects for U.S. sales for the
rest of 2008 and into 2009," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst Robert Schulz.  The erosion of demand for SUVs and
pickups has been particularly troubling.  Although these
segments have been weak for some time, the exodus of demand that
began in April, caused by escalating gas prices and consumer
preferences for smaller vehicles, is gathering speed.  Despite
concerted, and in some cases successful, efforts to bolster
their line-ups of smaller vehicles and reduce costs, all three
Michigan-based automakers still rely on light trucks for a
disproportionate share of profitability and cash flow.

The companies' difficulty in anticipating the pace of market
deterioration was reflected today in Ford's announcement that it
expects to use an even larger amount of cash this year and next
than it announced previously, its second negative guidance
revision in a month.  Ford plans to use more than US$16 billion
of cash between 2007 and 2009 in its automotive operations,
including the cost of employee separation programs, unless the
economy rebounds next year.  The company also said this year's
pretax results will be worse than last year's, announced further
light-truck production cuts and shift reductions, and delayed
this fall's launch of the F-150 pickup by two months to clear
existing inventory.  Also worrisome is the dire state of
the vehicle finance market. Ford said Friday it expects Ford
Motor Credit to report a pretax loss for the year (before any
infusion from Ford) caused by weak used (residual) values,
primarily for light trucks.

Although GM and Chrysler have not publicly detailed their
expectations for cash use, all of the factors behind Ford's
weaker guidance also apply to the other U.S.-based automakers.
In addition to weak sales and adverse product mix shifts, the
list of challenges also includes less receptive capital
markets, higher costs for steel and other raw materials, lower
residual values that hurt profitability at the finance units and
reduce consumers' trade-in power, and increasing cash needs for
restructuring efforts.

S&P believes all three companies currently have ample liquidity
for at least the rest of 2008 as measured by cash balances,
available bank facilities, and in some cases unencumbered
assets.  But S&P also believes deteriorating industry
fundamentals could reduce liquidity to undesirable levels by the
second half of 2009.

As part of S&P's reviews, S&P will assess all three companies'
strategies for addressing the weak sales and shifts in demand
away from light trucks and maintaining liquidity at satisfactory
levels through 2009.


GENERAL MOTORS: S&P Places Ratings on Negative Watch
----------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services on Friday said it is placing

IAP WORLDWIDE: S&P Lifts Ratings and Says Outlook is Developing
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services raised its ratings on IAP
Worldwide Services Inc., including raising the corporate credit
rating to 'CCC+' from 'CC', and removed all ratings from
CreditWatch with negative implications.  Ratings were originally
placed on CreditWatch on Aug. 10, 2007, and subsequently lowered
and maintained on CreditWatch on Jan. 8, 2008.

At the same time, S&P revised the recovery rating on IAP's
first-lien facilities to '3', indicating expectations of
meaningful recovery (50%-70%) in the event of a payment default,
from '2'.  As a result, the company's first-lien facilities are
rated in line with the corporate credit rating at 'CCC+'. The
outlook is developing.

"The upgrade reflects the company's successful completion of a
debt restructuring, which mitigates the risk of a default in the
near term," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Dan Picciotto.
The resolution included an equity contribution by owner Cerberus
Capital L.P. that was used to pay down debt.  The company will
benefit from lower cash interest obligations.  However,
IAP remains highly leveraged and weakness in operating
performance could pressure covenants or affect its ability to
meet financial obligations.

The ratings on IAP reflect the company's highly leveraged
financial risk profile and vulnerable business risk profile,
marked by revenue concentration from large contracts and the
less-predictable nature of contingency operations, which
significantly contribute to revenue and profit.  These
weaknesses are partially mitigated by the company's good rebid
record on contracts and the low fixed-capital intensiveness of
operations.

IAP is a provider of contingency operations, facilities
management, and technical services to the U.S. military and
civilian government agencies.  The company's largest operating
segment is global operations and logistics, which provides about
60% of revenues.  This segment includes power generation,
emergency disaster relief, transport operations, and other
services in the U.S. and overseas.  The facilities management
segment, meanwhile, contributes roughly one-quarter of the
company's revenues.  Through this segment, the company maintains
domestic and overseas U.S. military bases.  The professional
and technical services segment provides temporary staff support
services to the federal civilian agencies and accounts for the
remainder of the company's
revenue base.

If operating performance stabilizes and the company demonstrates
it can maintain adequate liquidity, S&P could raise the ratings.

S&P could lower the ratings if the company breaches a financial
covenant or if its operating performance and financial leverage
fail to improve.

IAP Worldwide Services -– http://www.iapws.com/-- is a
government contractor providing global mission support for the
Department of Defense and other U.S. government agencies.  IAP,
which is privately held, traces its roots back 50 years ago to

INCA INTERIORS: Brings In Administrators from Vantis
----------------------------------------------------

NORTHERN ROCK: Loan Totals GBP19.3Bln Over Summer, UK Gov't Says
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Summer Supplementary Estimates booklet (HC 621), containing
a Supplementary Estimate for HM Treasury, presented to the House
of Commons sought authority for additional cash expenditure by
the department of GBP5.3 billion on existing services.  There is
also a token increase in resource expenditure.

At the Budget the Treasury announced that the Bank of England
loan facilities to Northern Rock would be replaced with direct
Treasury funding during 2008-09 in line with restrictions on
central bank financing of government undertakings set out in the
Treaty Establishing the European Community.  The Main Supply
Estimates published in April included a sum of GBP14 billion,
the amount of the outstanding loan facilities projected at the
end of the 2008-09 financial year.

Since then, the date of transfer has been agreed by the parties
involved and the Treasury will transfer the loan facilities over
the summer, at which point the outstanding balance is projected
to be GBP19.3 billion.  This Supplementary Estimate updates the
provision made in the Main Estimate and will enable the transfer
of the Northern Rock loan from the Bank of England to the
Treasury at the agreed time.

Northern Rock has been paying down these facilities to date and
is expected to continue to do so.  As set out in the Budget, the
outstanding loan facilities at the end of March 2009 are
projected to be GBP14 billion.

The Estimate does not involve any change in total spending
plans.

Headquartered in Newcastle upon Tyne, England, Northern Rock plc
-- http://www.northernrock.co.uk/mortgages/-- deals with
mortgages, savings accounts, loans and insurance.  The company

                          *     *     *

Northern Rock Plc's Bank Financial Strength is currently rated
at E+ by Moody's Investors Service.  The rating was initially at
D+ and was downgraded to its current rating in December 2007.

The bank's dated subordinated debt was also downgraded to B1
from Baa1 and the undated subordinated debt and Tier-1
securities were downgraded to B3 from Baa1 and Baa3
respectively.  All of these ratings have negative outlooks.
Northern Rock's short-term rating was affirmed at Prime-1.


POLAR PRINT: Administrators to Sell Business as Going Concern
-------------------------------------------------------------
Polar Print Group Ltd.'s administrators are optimistic they
could sell the business as a going concern, William Mitting
writes for PrintWeek.  Polar Print went into administration
after experiencing prolonged trading difficulties as a result of
increasing competition and soaring overhead costs.

According to joint administrator Richard Philpott of KPMG, Polar
Print, which has ceased trading, attracted interest from
potential buyers, PrintWeek relates.

PrintWeek adds 45 workers of Polar Print have been made
redundant.

In 2006, the company posted a GBP202,000 pre-tax loss compared
to a profit of GBP105,000 in 2005, PrintWeek discloses.


XL CAPITAL: Moody's Hacks Ratings to B2; Outlook is Negative
------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has downgraded to B2, from A3, the
insurance financial strength ratings of XL Capital Assurance
Inc., XL Capital Assurance (U.K.) Limited and XL Financial
Assurance Ltd.  In the same rating action, Moody's also
downgraded the debt ratings of Security Capital Assurance Ltd
(NYSE: SCA -- preference shares to Ca from B3) and a related
financing trust.

The rating action concludes a review for possible downgrade that
was initiated on March 4, 2008, and reflects the company's
severely impaired financial flexibility and the company's
proximity to minimum regulatory capital requirements relative to
our estimations of expected case losses.  The outlook for the
ratings is negative.

Moody's ratings on securities that are guaranteed or "wrapped"
by a financial guarantor are generally maintained at a level
equal to the higher of a) the rating of the guarantor or b) the
published underlying rating.  However, as XLCA and XLFA's
ratings are downgraded below the investment grade level, and
reflecting current rating agency policy, Moody's will withdraw
ratings on XLCA and XLFA-wrapped securities for which there is
no published underlying rating.  Should the guarantors' ratings
subsequently move back into the investment grade range or should
the agency subsequently publish the underlying rating, Moody's
would reinstate the rating to the wrapped instruments.

SCA has recorded approximately US$750 million in cumulative
losses arising from its mortgage-related exposures, primarily
from ABS CDOs and to a lesser extent, second-lien RMBS
transactions. At 1Q2008, XLCA had US$167 million of statutory
surplus, which is approximately US$102 million above the
statutory minimum regulatory requirement.  Moody's notes that
XLCA cedes a majority of premiums and losses to XLFA under a
quota share reinsurance arrangement, which substantially
increases the amount of resources XLCA may draw upon to pay
claims.  At 1Q2008, XLFA had approximately US$1.2 billion of
capital.  During 4Q2007, XLCA entered into various additional
reinsurance arrangements with XLFA designed to maintain XLCA's
statutory surplus above the minimum threshold.  SCA has stated
that it could incur adverse case basis loss reserve development
of up to approximately 80% of its established case basis
reserves at 1Q2008 (net of reinsurance), and still maintain
compliance with its regulatory solvency requirements.  However,
Moody's has estimated expected case losses on the firm's
mortgage risks to be in the range of US$2 billion, suggesting
that meaningful further losses may be recognized and regulatory
capital further depleted.

The rating agency added that if XLCA's capital were to fall
below the regulatory minimum, there could be material adverse
effects on the firm's financial condition.  A meaningful portion
of XLCA's credit exposure was written in credit default swap
(CDS) form, and contains a clause that exposes the firm to mark
to market termination in the event of insolvency.  A breach of
minimum regulatory capital requirement heightens the risk of
regulatory intervention, which could trigger a market value
termination of the CDS contracts.

Moody's has re-estimated expected and stress loss projections on
SCA's insured portfolio, focusing on the company's mortgage-
related exposures, as well as other sectors of the portfolio
potentially vulnerable to deterioration in the current
environment.  Based on Moody's revised assessment of the risks
in SCA's portfolio, estimated stress-case losses would
approximate US$6.6 billion at the Aaa rating threshold.  This
compares to Moody's estimate of SCA's total claims paying
resources of approximately US$3.5 billion, a capital position
more consistent with a rating in the single-B category.

According to Moody's, the negative outlook on SCA's ratings
reflects continued uncertainty with respect to the amount of
losses that will ultimately arise from the company's insured
portfolio and attendant risks that could occur if losses develop
adversely, including the potential of regulatory intervention.

SCA has stated that it continues to work toward mitigating the
financial stresses impacting the company, including the
commutation, restructuring or settlement of its obligations with
its CDO counterparties and the commutation or settlement of
various reinsurance arrangements with XL Capital Ltd.

Moody's will continue to evaluate SCA's ratings in the context
of changes to the company's strategic and capital management
plans, as well as the future performance of the company's
mortgage-related exposures relative to expectations and
resulting capital adequacy levels.  The rating agency noted that
upward rating pressure could occur if SCA is able to
successfully execute on its restructuring plans, although there
is considerable uncertainty about the outcome and timing of
those efforts.  Conversely, downward rating pressure could occur
if minimum regulatory capital requirements are breached.

* BoE to Play Stronger Role in Preserving Financial Stability
------------------------------------------------------------
Her Majesty The Queen has approved, under the Bank of England
Act 1998, the appointment of Charles Bean as a Deputy Governor
of the Bank of England for Monetary Stability, for a period of
five years starting on July 1,  2008.  Alongside this the
Chancellor has announced that, in future, the Government will
advertise vacancies for the Governor and Deputy Governors of the
Bank of England and also for external members of the MPC,
consistent with the principles of open competition.

Having consulted with the Governor and Sir John Gieve, the
Chancellor has also set out proposals to enhance the role of the
Bank of England in preserving financial stability.  These
proposals will be included in the Banking Reform bill, to be
introduced later this year.

The Chancellor's proposals focus on:

    * provision of a statutory responsibility for financial
      stability for the Bank of England;

    * changes to the governance structures of the Bank of
      England, to support the Bank and the Governor in the
      exercise of these new responsibilities, including the
      establishment of a new Financial Stability Committee of
      the Court; and

    * provision of a range of tools for the Bank of England to
      enable it to carry out its responsibility in this area.
      This will include a leading role in the implementation of
      the new special resolution regime (SRR), should it be
      triggered by the FSA, including powers related to
      deploying and implementing the SRR tools.

The new legislation will change the role of the Bank and, within
that, the Deputy Governor for financial stability from Spring
2009.

Taking this forward will require a long-term commitment.  Sir
John Gieve has indicated that he would not wish to serve a new
5-year term at the Bank and has decided therefore to step down
once the legislation comes into force.  The Governor and
Chancellor have asked Sir John to continue in the job of leading
this reform process until then, at which point the position will
be advertised under the new process.

Further details are set out in the Chancellor's letter to the
Treasury Select Committee The Chancellor said:

"I am delighted to announce the appointment of Charlie Bean as
Deputy Governor for Monetary Stability at the Bank of England.
He is a world-class economist with a great depth of experience
in both academia and policy making environments.  Appointing an
economist of Charlie's caliber is particularly important amidst
the significant global economic challenges the UK economy is
presently facing.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Rachel Lomax
for the contribution she has made to the public sector
throughout her distinguished career, including as Permanent
Secretary to a number of Government departments and as Deputy
Governor.

The wider reforms that I am announcing today will ensure that
the Bank of England will in future have a much enhanced role in
the preservation of financial stability.  Sir John Gieve has
made a huge contribution to public service over many years both
in the civil service and at the Bank.  I am extremely grateful
to him for leading the Bank's work to develop these proposals
for reform and for all his work in the demanding circumstances
of the last year."

Mervyn King said:

"I am delighted that the Treasury has asked Charlie Bean to take
on this vital role overseeing our monetary policy work.  I am
extremely grateful to Rachel Lomax for her contribution to the
MPC, her tireless devotion to the work of the Bank and her
personal support and wise counsel over the past five years.  I
am also very grateful to John Gieve for his hard work and
loyalty.  In particular since the events of last summer, John
has played a major role in delivering the new framework, and I
am pleased he is staying until the Bill is law.  I wish them
both well in future."

Charlie Bean commented:

"As the Deputy Governor responsible for overseeing the Bank's
monetary policy work, I am committed to ensuring that the MPC is
properly equipped to steer the economy through the challenging
times ahead."

The Bank of England is announcing Charles Bean's successor as
Executive Director and Chief Economist at the Bank of England in
parallel to this announcement.

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
