KREMIKOVTZI AD: Essar Steel Eyes Takeover
-----------------------------------------
Essar Steel Holdings Ltd. is interested in taking over
Kremikovtzi AD, Elizabeth Konstantinova writes for Bloomberg
News, citing the Bulgarian News Agency.

Vassil Yanachkov, metalworkers' trade union leader, told BTA
that Essar's management is holding talks with its employees over
plans to invest in Kremikovtzi.

As recently reported in the TCR-Europe on June 23, 2008, the
Sofia City Court postponed until the end of July 2008, a
decision on whether to declare Kremikovtzi insolvent.

ArcelorMittal vice-president Volker Schwich said the
postponement would further delay ArcelorMittal's plan to acquire
Kremikovtzi, which would buy the company only after it is
legally declared bankrupt

A Bulgarian court on April 30, 2008, appointed administrators at
Kremikovtzi AD in relation with the steel mill's deteriorating
financial position.

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.

EASTMAN KODAK: Moody's Says Ratings Not Affected by BuyBack Plan
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's commented that Eastman Kodak's B1 corporate family
rating with a stable outlook would not be affected by the
company's announcement that its Board of Directors has
authorized a stock repurchase program totaling as much as US$1.0
billion of the company's outstanding common stock.

The authorization follows Kodak's receipt of US$581 million from
the Internal Revenue Service associated with a completed audit
of certain claims filed for tax years for the tax years 1993-
1998, and is composed of a refund of past federal income taxes
paid of US$306 million and US$275 million of interest earned on
the refund.  At recent prices, the purchase of US$1.0 billion of
Kodak stock would represent approximately 25% of the shares
outstanding.  The company plans to fund the majority of the
stock repurchase program, which is authorized through the end of
2009, from the tax refund, with the remainder to come from
available cash on hand.

KABEL DEUTSCHLAND: S&P Revises Outlook to Stable from Negative
--------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services revised its outlook Germany-
based cable TV operator Kabel Deutschland GmbH to stable from
negative.  The 'B+' long-term corporate credit rating was
affirmed.

"The outlook revision acknowledges the good near-term revenue
and EBITDA growth prospects from the uptake of high-speed
Internet and telephony services -- together with CATV called
triple play -- and from digital pay-TV services, which should
result in improving credit measures in the next 12 months," said
Standard & Poor's credit analyst Matthias Raab.

"Furthermore, KDG's financial flexibility in terms of available
cash reserves and covenant headroom under its existing senior
term loan documentation in the near to medium term have improved
following KDG's decision to buy only 1.1 million CATV
subscribers rather than the originally envisaged maximum of up
to 1.6 million from the Orion Group for about EUR500 million,"
said Mr. Raab.  The acquisition closed on April 30, 2008.  KDG's
financial flexibility is now adequate at the rating level and is
expected to remain so through year-end 2009.

In the third quarter ended Dec. 31, 2007, KDG reported solid
year-on-year revenue growth of 10% and EBITDA growth (adjusted
for share-based compensation and non-cash restructuring
expenses) of 11%.  This is primarily a result of the significant
cable TV price increase for all single family homes in March
2007 and higher revenues from triple-play services.  For the
fiscal year ended March 31, 2008, KDG expects to generate
adjusted EBITDA of at least EUR440 million to EUR445 million, a
marked increase of 16% on the last fiscal year, which we view
as achievable.

As of Dec. 31, 2007, KDG's had adjusted total debt to adjusted
last-12-month EBITDA of 7.7x.

The Orion subscriber acquisition increases KDG's financial debt
by EUR535 million, but provides it with additional EBITDA of at
least EUR50 million.  Nevertheless, pro forma for this
transaction, KDG's adjusted total debt to EBITDA is expected to
decline to about 7.2x at the end of March 31, 2008, on the back
of the marked EBITDA growth for fiscal 2008.

WESTLB AG: Court Clears Ex-CEO Sengera in Box Clever Case
---------------------------------------------------------
A court in Dusseldorf, Germany, has acquitted WestLB AG's former
chief executive officer Juergen Sengera of breach of contact
relating to the company's approval of a faulty EUR135 billion
loan to Box Clever Ltd., Karin Matussek writes for Bloomberg
News.

According to presiding judge Brigitte Koppenhoefer, Bloomberg
News relates, Mr. Sengera violated his duties as WestLB's CEO
when he approved the loan without adequate risk assessment.

Ms. Koppenhoefer, however, said Mr. Sengera is not criminally
liable since he didn't expect his action would harm WestLB.   
She added that since the loan was approved under "enormous time
pressure" in December 1999, WestLB failed to gather sufficient
information or conduct its market analysis.

Eberhard Kempf, Mr. Sengera's lawyer, expressed content on the
verdict, but disagreed that WestLB's former CEO violated his
duties.

Dusseldorf prosecutors, who had sought a two-year suspended
sentence and a fine, will appeal the verdict, Nils Bussee told
Bloomberg News.

company will continue running the ad in Italy and in other
European countries where Lancia Delta will be sold.

STEEL CAPITAL: Fitch Rates Loan Participation Notes at BB
---------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has assigned Steel Capital S.A.'s proposed issue
of loan participation notes an expected senior unsecured 'BB'
rating.  The final rating is contingent on receipt of final
documentation conforming materially to information already
received and confirmation regarding the amount and tenor of the
notes.

Steel Capital S.A. is a public limited liability company
incorporated under the laws of the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.   
Steel Capital S.A. will issue the notes and lend the proceeds
under a loan agreement to the ultimate borrower, OJSC Severstal
('BB'/'B'/Outlook Stable).  The 'BB' rating of the LPNs is in
line with Severstal's senior unsecured rating of 'BB'.  
Severstal will use the proceeds to refinance a portion of its
existing debt, partially fund the acquisition of US-steel
producers WCI Steel and Esmark (the latter is dependent upon the
success of Severstal's current offer), for other potential
acquisitions and for general corporate purposes.  Steel Capital
S.A. has granted a first fixed charge in respect of various
rights and interests under the loan agreement with Severstal to
Citibank N.A., London Branch, as trustee, for the benefit of the
trustee and the noteholders.  The loan agreement, notes, trust
deed and other related documents are governed by English law.

Terms contained in the loan agreement between Steel Capital S.A.
and Severstal include that the loan ranks at least equally with
all unsecured and unsubordinated indebtedness of Severstal, a
negative pledge (albeit with a comprehensive list of permitted
liens) and restrictions on mergers and disposals.  The loan
agreement also includes a consolidated leverage (debt/EBITDA)
ratio of 3.5:1.  This test is instead of the consolidated net
debt/net worth covenant of 0.75 included in Severstal's existing
2009 and 2014 notes.  The terms and conditions of the new notes
are substantially similar to previous issuances involving
Severstal, although the redemption put event following a change-
of-control has been removed, as has the change-of-control
clause.

Severstal's Long-term IDR and senior unsecured ratings were
upgraded to 'BB' from 'BB-' by Fitch on June 20, 2008.

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 tons in
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 at fiscal year ending 2007.

SAMARA OBLAST: S&P Rates US$351 Million Bond Issue at BB+
---------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its 'BB+' local
currency global scale rating and 'ruAA+' Russia national scale
senior unsecured debt rating to the proposed Russian ruble 8.3
billion (US$351 million) fixed-coupon domestic bond issue by
Samara Oblast (BB+/Stable/--; Russia national scale rating
'ruAA+').

"The issue will be placed on June 26, 2008, with a five and one-
half year amortization, and will have 22 fixed-coupon payments,"
said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Boris Kopeykin.

The ratings on the bond mirror those on Samara Oblast, one of
the key industrial regions in the Russian Federation (foreign
currency BBB+/Positive/A-2; local currency A-/Positive/A-2;
Russia national scale 'ruAAA').  The oblast lies 1,100
kilometers south-east of Moscow on the Volga River.

The ratings on the oblast reflect high dependence on federal
decisions about its revenue and expenditure responsibilities;
continued, although decreasing, dependence on the region's
largest taxpayers; and high expenditure pressures on both the
operating and capital sides.

Solid economic and budget revenue growth in the oblast support
the ratings.  They also reflect the oblast's moderate debt,
relatively sound financial performance, and good liquidity.


SEVERSTAL OAO: Reiterates US$17.00 per Share Offer for Esmark
-------------------------------------------------------------
OAO Severstal has sent a letter to the Board of Directors of
Esmark Incorporated with respect to Severstal’s previously
announced all cash US$17 per share tender offer to acquire all
of the outstanding shares of Esmark common stock.

The letter was addressed to James Bouchard, Esmark Chairman and
CEO.

"We would like to reiterate our continued strong interest in
acquiring Esmark Incorporated pursuant to our previously
announced tender offer for all outstanding shares of Esmark
common stock," Gregory Mason, Severstal Chief Operating Officer
said in the letter.  "We also believe that Severstal is uniquely
positioned to promptly consummate an acquisition of Esmark,
given the full and enthusiastic support of our proposal by the
United Steelworkers and your majority shareholder.

"We understand that the arbitrator in the United Steelworkers’
right to bid grievance arbitration with Esmark may consider
setting aside Esmark’s Memorandum of Agreement with Essar Steel
Holdings Limited.

"If the arbitrator sets aside the Memorandum of Agreement,
Severstal is aware of and understands Esmark’s financing issues
with respect to the loan agreements you entered into with Essar
Steel and your other financing agreements.  This is to confirm
that we are prepared to immediately replace the Essar financing
in a manner that satisfies Esmark’s obligations to all credit
parties and does not jeopardize Esmark’s business.

"We stand ready to conclude a transaction expeditiously."

SEVERSTAL OAO: Moderate Leverage Prompts S&P's Outlook Revision
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said revised its outlook on
Russia-based steel producer OAO Severstal to positive from
stable.  This reflects the company's improving business risk
profile and moderate leverage, despite higher spending on
acquisitions and capital expenditures.

At the same time, S&P affirmed the 'BB' long-term corporate
credit and senior unsecured debt ratings and the 'ruAA' Russia
national scale rating.

Furthermore, S&P assigned a 'BB' senior unsecured debt rating to
the proposed issue of U.S. dollar loan participation notes by an
orphan special-purpose financing vehicle, Steel Capital S.A. The
rating is subject to final documentation.

"The outlook revision reflects continued strong steel market
conditions, especially in Russia; improving diversity of
operations; continued high raw materials integration; healthy
profitability; and strong cash flows," said Standard & Poor's
credit analyst Alex Herbert.

Spending on acquisitions has significantly increased in recent
months and Severstal has large capital expenditure plans for the
coming years.  Nevertheless, S&P regards the company's financial
policy and pro forma leverage as moderate, indicating the
potential for a higher rating in the future.

"A one-notch upgrade would be possible within the next year if
Severstal can demonstrate successful execution and integration
of its recent acquisitions while maintaining moderate leverage,"
Mr. Herbert added.

S&P expects this to be supported by strong cash flow generation,
underpinned by healthy steel prices.  Financial flexibility has
reduced following the latest transactions, so management will
need to finance its expansion carefully, balancing the extent
and pace of spending to take into account market conditions and
its financial risk profile.  A sustainable ratio of funds from
operations to adjusted debt of about 50% would be needed
for us to consider raising the corporate credit rating to 'BB+'.

An outlook revision back to stable could be considered if FFO to
adjusted debt fell below 50% on a consistent basis, for example
due to ongoing debt-financed acquisitions.


VOLGOGRAD OBLAST: S&P Rates US$42.4 Million Bond at BB-
-------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said assigned its 'BB-' long-
term debt rating and 'ruAA-' Russia national scale rating to the
Russian ruble 1 billion (about US$42.4 million) senior unsecured
four-year bond placed on June 17, 2008, by Volgograd Oblast (BB-
/Stable/--; Russia national scale 'ruAA-').

The bond has eight semiannual fixed coupons and is amortizing,
with 30% of the principal to be repaid in 2010, another 30% in
2011, and the remainder at the maturity date in 2012.  The
coupons' rates are linked to the first coupon's rate of 9.78%.

"The ratings on the bond are equalized with those on the
Volgograd Oblast," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Irina
Pilman.

The ratings on Volgograd Oblast are constrained by restricted
flexibility and predictability of revenues and expenditures, and
by revenue volatility and pressure on liquidity resulting from
taxpayer concentration.  Low wealth levels compared with those
of its peers in The Russian Federation (foreign currency
BBB+/Positive/A-2; local currency A-/Positive/A-2; Russia
national scale 'ruAAA') also constrain the ratings.

The oblast's good budgetary performance offsets these
constraints, as do its commitments to maintain a moderate debt
burden in the medium term and improve the debt structure.  The
Volgograd Oblast administration's efforts to attract investment
provide additional support for the ratings.

* KPMG Partners in Spain to Join Merger in Europe
-------------------------------------------------
The partners of KPMG's member firm in Spain have voted to join
KPMG Europe LLP alongside the U.K, Germany and Switzerland in a
move which will enhance the merged firm’s position as Europe’s
largest fully integrated accountancy firm.

The combined firm will have more than 23,000 partners and staff
working from 75 offices across the four countries - with
revenues in excess of EUR4.2 billion in 2007.  Partners of KPMG
Spain approved the merger proposal in a vote last Friday.  The
vote is subject to the agreement of the U.K, German and Swiss
partners.

John Scott, senior partner for KPMG Spain, will join the KPMG
Europe board.  The Spanish partners’ vote is the latest stage in
KPMG's ambition to create the most fully integrated accountancy
firm across Europe.

Rolf Nonnenmacher and John Griffith-Jones, joint chairmen of
KPMG Europe LLP, said:

"We warmly welcome the decision of our colleagues in Spain to
join the KPMG merger in Europe.  Their decision to join builds
on the foundations formed when the UK, Germany and Switzerland
member firms agreed to merge and we are delighted that they wish
to become part of our ambition to create the most successful
professional services firm in Europe, for the benefit of both
our clients and our people. We look forward to other member
firms joining in due course."

The Spanish practice of KPMG has grown very successfully over
the last three years.  In the year to September 2007, revenues
were EUR175 million Mr. Scott added.

"This move is a definitive step in our goal to consolidate our
reputation as employer of choice.  It will increase our ability
to recruit and retain talent, will develop wider career
opportunities with more options to participate in cross-border
projects, and will promote deeper knowledge sharing.
Consequently, our capabilities to add value to our clients will
enhance our competitive advantage and market leadership."

EUROMANX: Faces Tynwald Probe Over Collapse
-------------------------------------------
Attorney General John Corlett in a Tynwald probe over Euromanx's
collapse said the airline had not yet entered into liquidation
at the time it flew out its Dash 8 aircraft on the day it ceased
trading, iomtoday reports.

Mr. Corlett, citing records at the company’s registry, was
quoted by iomtoday as saying "at 'no material time' was the
company in liquidation."

The legality of flying the aircraft, iomtoday relates, was
questioned as it could be used as security against Euromanx's
GBP1.16 million debts, GBP28,000 of which for unpaid tax.

Chief Minister Tony Brown told the House of Keys the airline,
which has about 40,000 creditors, "quite deliberately" flew out
the aircraft, iomtoday reveals.

Meanwhile, Treasury Minister Allan Bell disclosed the
provisional liquidator was awaiting a court order for his
appointment on account of the airline's creditors, although no
date had yet been announced for a creditors' meeting, iomtoday
notes.

EuroManx -- http://www.euromanx.com/-- provides flights from
Isle of Man to locations that includes Belfast, Liverpool,
London and Manchester.

EuroManx said in its website that as of May 9, 2008, it was
ceasing operations and as a result, no further flights will be
operated.

The company said that despite attempts to "develop and grow the
business," it had faced "insurmountable obstacles" over the last
six months that included increasing costs of fuel prices and a
reduction in the number of passengers.

GENERAL MOTORS: Cuts Truck Output; Offers Interest-Free Loans
-------------------------------------------------------------
General Motors Corp. is planning to cut production of its trucks
and offered new incentives on many 2008 model-year vehicles, The
Wall Street Journal reports.

According to the report, the decision came as a result of the
slump in pickup trucks and SUVs sales.

The company will decrease production of pickup trucks and SUVs
by 170,000 units but increase output of cars, crossovers and
vans by 47,000 units during the second half of the year, the
report said.

WSJ adds that the company is offering zero-percent loans for up
to 72 months or cash rebates of up to US$7,000.  

The offers should help dealers move some of the pickups and SUVs
they have in inventory, which have become hard to sell and are
rapidly falling in value, Mark LaNeve, GM's U.S. sales chief was
quoted by Wall Street as saying.

In May, GM's U.S. sales of trucks and SUVs were 37% below those
of May 2007, the biggest decline in the segment among the major
auto makers, report relates.

                            About GM

Headquartered in Detroit, Michigan, General Motors Corp. (NYSE:
GM) -- http://www.gm.com/-- was founded in 1908.  GM employs
about 266,000 people around the world and manufactures cars and
trucks in 35 countries.  In 2007, nearly 9.37 million GM cars
and trucks were sold globally under the following brands: Buick,
Cadillac, Chevrolet, GMC, GM Daewoo, Holden, HUMMER, Opel,
Pontiac, Saab, Saturn, Vauxhall and Wuling.  GM's OnStar
subsidiary is the industry leader in vehicle safety, security
and information services.

At March 31, 2008, GM's balance sheet showed total assets of
US$145,741,000,000 and total debts of US$186,784,000,000,
resulting in a stockholders' deficit of US$41,043,000,000.  
Deficit, at Dec. 31, 2007, and March 31, 2007, was
US$37,094,000,000 and US$4,558,000,000, respectively.

                          *     *     *

As related in the Troubled Company Reporter on June 5, 2008,
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that its ratings on
General Motors Corp. (B/Negative/B-3) are not immediately
affected by the company's announcement that it will cease
production at four North American truck plants over the next two
years.  These closures are in response to the re-energized shift
in consumer demand away from light trucks.  GM previously said
only one shift was being eliminated at each of the four truck
plants.  Production is being increased at plants producing small
and midsize cars, but the cash contribution margin from these
smaller vehicles is far less than that of light trucks.


HOUSE OF EUROPE I: Fitch Junks Class C Notes and Removes Watch
--------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch has downgraded three and affirmed one class of notes
issued by House of Europe Funding I Plc (HOE I):

   -- EUR878.2 million Class A due 2015 (ISIN XS0220241086):
      downgraded to 'B' from 'AAA'; remains on RWN

   -- EUR65 million Class B due 2047 (ISIN XS0220241755):
      downgraded to 'CCC' from 'AAA'; removed from RWN

   -- EUR50 million Class C due 2047 (ISIN XS0220242134):
      downgraded to 'C' from 'BBB-'; removed from RWN

   -- EUR50 million Class C additional interest (interest only):
      downgraded to 'C' from 'BB'; removed from RWN

   -- EUR5 million certificates due 2047: affirmed at 'AAA'

HOE I is an arbitrage cash flow collateralized debt obligation
incorporated to issue EUR1bn of notes.  The proceeds of the
issuance are invested in a portfolio of European RMBS, CMBS, ABS
and CDOs.  The collateral manager is Collineo Asset Management
GmbH (rated 'CAM2-' as a manager of structured finance CDOs).  
The transaction is no longer in the re-investment period, which
ended in March 2008.

This transaction was initially placed on RWN on 27 February
2008, following a deterioration of the portfolio quality
resulting from exposure to US structured finance CDOs comprised
of subprime debt.  Due to this exposure, the portfolio's credit
quality has considerably worsened, resulting in the downgrades
listed above.  There are currently three assets totaling
EUR60 million (approximately 6.5% of the portfolio) rated 'CCC'
or below.  While these assets are still paying interest, they
are expected to have no principal recovery.  The remainder of
the portfolio remains in the investment grade category.

As a result of exposure to these three assets, the transaction
has failed the over-collateralisation test.  As of the
May 20, 2008 trustee report, the senior OC test, which covers
the Class A and B notes, was reported at 95.9% relative to a
minimum threshold of 104.75%.  The failure of the OC tests means
that the principal proceeds available after paying certain
senior expenses will be used to redeem the notes in order of
priority until the tests are back in compliance.  However, Fitch
does not expect the OC tests to cure.  As a result, the Class C
notes are likely not to receive any future interest payments.

The Class B, C and the certificates are currently under-
collateralized.  When the portfolio balance is adjusted to
reflect the zero recovery expectations on the above mentioned
assets, the Class B notes are under-collateralized by
EUR38 million, and the Class C notes have no collateral standing
against them at all.  Regarding the Class A notes, credit
enhancement levels have eroded to 2.95%, based on an adjusted
performing portfolio balance of EUR904.9 million, which includes
principal cash.  While a limited margin of safety remains for
the Class A notes, Fitch believes the current credit enhancement
is no longer sufficient to support an investment-grade rating.

In addition, the interest proceeds generated from the portfolio
are no longer sufficient to cover the interest on the
liabilities.  Effectively, the projected excess spread of the
structure is now negative, which suggests that principal
collections might be applied to pay current interest, thus
reducing the remaining credit enhancement.  The decline in
projected interest proceeds is partly due to the swap strategy
implemented by the manager in September 2007.  The strategy
exchanged future interest proceeds for an upfront principal
payment.  This hedge strategy allowed the structure to pass the
OC test in previous payment periods, allowing for the
distribution of interest to the junior notes.

The ratings of the Class A and B notes address the timely
payment of interest and the ultimate repayment of principal by
the stated maturity date.  The rating of the Class C notes
addresses the ultimate repayment of principal and the ultimate
payment of interest at a rate equal to EURIBOR by the stated
maturity date.  The rating of the Class C additional interest
addresses the ultimate payment of Class C interest at a rate
equal to 1.3% per annum.  The rating of the certificates
addresses the ultimate repayment of principal only by the stated
maturity date. The rating of the certificates is based on full
principal protection provided by a zero coupon 'AAA'-rated
French government bond.

Fitch will resolve the RWN upon finalization of its revised
structured finance CDO criteria.


HOUSE OF EUROPE II: Fitch Junks Classes C and D Notes
-----------------------------------------------------
Fitch has downgraded four and affirmed one class of notes issued
by House of Europe Funding II Plc:

   -- EUR870 million Class A (ISIN XS0189751810): downgraded to
      'BBB' RWN 'AAA'; remains on RWN

   -- EUR60 million Class B (ISIN XS0189774432): downgraded to
      'B' from 'AAA'; remains on RWN

   -- EUR57 million Class C (ISIN XS0189774788): downgraded to
      'CCC' from 'A-'; removed from RWN

   -- EUR8 million Class D (ISIN XS0189775082): downgraded to
      'CC' from 'BBB' ; removed from RWN

   -- EUR5 million Class E (ISIN XS0189775595): affirmed at
      'AAA'

HOE II is an arbitrage cash flow collateralized debt obligation
incorporated to issue EUR1 billion of notes.  The proceeds of
the issuance are invested in a portfolio of European RMBS, CMBS,
ABS and CDOs.  The collateral manager is Collineo Asset
Management GmbH (rated 'CAM2-(minus)' as a manager of structured
finance CDOs).  The transaction is currently in the re-
investment period, which ends in May 2009.

This transaction was initially placed on RWN on Feb. 27, 2008,
following a deterioration of the portfolio quality resulting
from exposure to US structured finance CDOs comprised of
subprime debt.  Due to this exposure, the portfolio's credit
quality has considerably worsened, resulting in the downgrades
listed above.  There are currently five assets totaling
EUR52.8 million (approximately 5.3% of the portfolio) rated
'CCC' or below.  While these assets are still paying interest,
they are expected to have no principal recovery.  In addition,
there is one non-Fitch rated asset representing approximately
0.43% of the portfolio which is rated 'B' on RWN.

As a result of exposure to these five assets, the transaction is
under-collateralized at the Class C notes and below.  However,
as of the 14 May 2008 trustee report, the trustee reported
EUR38.6 million of recovery amounts relating to those five
assets, which allowed all of the OC tests to be in compliance.  
The senior OC test, which covers the Class A and B notes, was
reported at 105.09% relative to a minimum threshold of 104%,
while the Class C OC test was reported at 100.01% relative to a
minimum threshold of 100%.

The Class C, D and E notes are currently under-collateralized.  
When the portfolio balance is adjusted to reflect the zero
recovery expectations on the above mentioned assets, the Class C
notes are under-collateralized by EUR35 million and the
remaining notes have no collateral outstanding against them
other than partial principal protection of EUR1 million for the
Class D notes and full principal protection to the Class E notes
provided by a zero coupon 'AAA'-rated French government bond.
Regarding the more senior notes, the Class A and B notes still
retain credit enhancement levels of 7.56% and 1.19%,
respectively, based on a performing portfolio balance of
EUR941.2 million, which includes principal cash.  While both the
Class A and B notes retain margins of safety, Fitch believes
that the current credit enhancement levels no longer support
investment-grade ratings.

In addition, the interest proceeds generated from the portfolio
are no longer sufficient to cover the interest on the
liabilities.  Effectively, the projected excess spread of the
structure is now negative, which suggest that principal
collections might be applied to pay current interest, thus
reducing the remaining credit enhancement.

The ratings of the Class A and B notes address the timely
payment of interest and the ultimate repayment of principal by
the stated maturity date as per the governing documents.  The
ratings for the Class C, D and E notes address the ultimate
return of the rated principal balance by the stated maturity as
per the governing documents.  The rating for the Class E notes
is based on full principal protection provided by a zero coupon
'AAA'-rated French government bond.


HOUSE OF EUROPE III: Fitch Junks Classes B, C and D Notes
---------------------------------------------------------
Fitch has downgraded three and affirmed one class of notes
issued by House of Europe Funding III Plc (HOE III):

   -- EUR861.3 million Class A (ISIN XS0202218284): downgraded
      to 'BB' from 'AAA'; placed on RWN

   -- EUR60 million Class B (ISIN XS0202219092): downgraded to
      'CCC' from 'AAA'; removed from RWN

   -- EUR57.5 million Class C (ISIN XS0202219415): downgraded to
      'C' from 'A-'; removed from RWN

   -- EUR7.5 million Class D (ISIN XS0202221072): downgraded to
      'C' from 'BBB'; removed from RWN

   -- EUR5 million Class E (ISIN XS0202221155): affirmed at
      'AAA'

HOE III is an arbitrage cash flow collateralized debt obligation
incorporated to issue EUR1 billion of notes.  The proceeds of
the issuance are invested in a portfolio of European RMBS, CMBS,
ABS and CDOs.  The collateral manager is Collineo Asset
Management GmbH (rated 'CAM2-' as a manager of structured
finance CDOs).  The transaction is currently in the re-
investment period, which ends in December 2009.

This transaction was initially placed on RWN on Feb. 27, 2008,
following a deterioration of the portfolio quality resulting
from exposure to US structured finance CDOs comprised of
subprime debt.  Due to this exposure, the portfolio's credit
quality has considerably worsened, resulting in the downgrades
listed above.  There are currently five assets totaling
EUR70 million (approximately 7.1% of the portfolio) rated 'CCC'
or below.  While these assets are still paying interest, they
are expected to have no principal recovery.  In addition, there
is one non-Fitch rated asset representing approximately 0.8% of
the portfolio, which is rated 'B' on RWN.

As a result of exposure to these five assets, the transaction
has failed all over-collateralization tests.  As of the
June 20, 2008 trustee report, the senior OC test, which covers
the Class A and B notes, was reported at 101.1% relative to a
minimum threshold of 104%.  The failure of the OC tests means
that the principal proceeds available after paying certain
senior expenses will be used to redeem the notes in order of
priority until the tests are back in compliance. However, Fitch
does not expect the OC tests to cure.  As a result, the Class C,
D, and E notes are likely to not receive any future interest
payments.

In addition to not receiving interest payments, the Class C, D
and E notes are currently under-collateralized.  When the
portfolio balance is adjusted to EUR924 million to reflect the
zero recovery expectations on the above mentioned assets, the
Class C and D notes have no collateral standing against them at
all.  Regarding the more senior notes, the Class A notes still
retain credit enhancement levels of 5.85%; however, in Fitch's
opinion this limited margin of safety is not sufficient to
support an investment grade rating.  While the Class B notes are
likely to continue to receive current interest payments, the
notes are under-collateralized by EUR6 million based on the
adjusted collateral balance.

In addition, the interest proceeds generated from the portfolio
are no longer sufficient to cover the interest on the
liabilities.  Effectively, the projected excess spread of the
structure is now negative, which suggest that principal
collections might be applied to pay current interest, thus
reducing the remaining credit enhancement.  The decline in
projected interest proceeds is partly due to the swap strategy
implemented by the manager in November 2007.  The strategy
exchanged future interest proceeds for an upfront principal
payment.  This hedge strategy allowed the structure to pass the
OC test in previous payment periods allowing for the
distribution of interest to the junior notes.

The ratings of the Class A and B notes address the timely
payment of interest and the ultimate repayment of principal by
the stated maturity date as per the governing documents.  The
ratings of the Class C, D and E notes address the ultimate
return of the rated principal balance by the stated maturity as
per the governing documents.  The rating of the Class E notes is
based on full principal protection provided by a zero coupon
'AAA'-rated French government bond.

Fitch will resolve the RWN upon finalization of its revised
structured finance CDO criteria.


JESMOND UTILITIES: Hires Liquidators from Tenon Recovery
--------------------------------------------------------
Steven Philip Ross and Ian William Kings of Tenon Recovery were

for the creditors' voluntary winding-up proceeding.

The joint liquidators can be reached at:

         Tenon Recovery
         Tenon House
         Ferryboat Lane
         Sunderland
         Tyne & Wear
         SR5 3JN

PREMIER ASSET: S&P Lowers Rating on Capital Notes to D
------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services has withdrawn its ratings on
the issuer credit rating and senior ratings on Premier Asset
Collateralized Entity Ltd. and Premier Asset Collateralized
Entity LLC, co-issuers of the structured investment vehicle.  
At the same time the rating on the PACE capital notes was
removed from CreditWatch with negative implications and lowered
to 'D'.
  
The withdrawal of ratings follows the repayment of all
outstanding commercial paper, medium-term notes, and amounts
owed under the liquidity facility, using proceeds from the sale
of the portfolio.  Following this sale, PACE no longer has any
assets, resulting in the breach of, and failure to cure, its
liquidity and interest rate limit tests.  This means that the
SIV has entered into an "enforcement" mode of operation.
  
At the same time, the asset sale and repayment of all senior
obligations means that there were insufficient funds to repay
the remaining capital noteholders on the June 16, 2008 payment  
date.  Therefore, the rating on the capital notes is lowered to
'D'.

SCS UPHOLSTERY: Suspends Shares; In Talks with Potential Buyer
--------------------------------------------------------------
SCS Upholstery PLC, on June 15, 2008, disclosed that it was in
discussions with a number of external parties to address the
working capital requirements of its suppliers, and therefore its
own working capital position.

During these discussions, the directors have received an
approach from one of the parties to acquire the entire share
capital of its sole trading subsidiary.  This approach would see
the trading subsidiary being provided with substantial working
capital facilities that would fully resolve the working capital
issues and ensure all suppliers have a strong and ongoing
relationship with the business.

To enable discussions to be progressed to a speedy conclusion
the Company has entered into exclusive discussions with the
external party, and due diligence is underway.  

However, as these discussions have developed, it has become
clear to the Directors of ScS that the extent of the additional
working capital funding required may result in only negligible
value being attributed to the shares in ScS.

As a result, the Directors of ScS have requested a suspension in
the trading of the Company's shares with immediate effect.
A further announcement will be made in due course.

                  Trading Conditions

As has been widely reported the challenging retail conditions
have had a negative impact throughout the furniture retailing
sector.  Despite the previously announced downturn in sales,
ScS's conservative financing structure was considered
appropriate for prevailing trading conditions.

However, the unexpected and sudden withdrawal of credit
insurance from the market, which has impacted us and other
retailers, has placed a strain on the working capital needs of
its suppliers.  ScS continues to trade with all its suppliers
with whom it has a symbiotic relationship and it is  working to
address their and therefore its, working capital requirements.

Currently ScS is cash positive with no net debt.

Since its interim results on March 26, 2008, trading has
remained challenging.  ScS's Like for like sales order intake
for the 8 weeks up to and including May 10, 2008 is down by 14%.  
The bank holiday weekend in isolation was particularly
disappointing with like for like sales order intake down 20% and
total sales order intake down 19%.

Like for like sales order intake for the 41 weeks of this
financial year are down 15% and total sales order intake down
11%.

Headquartered in Sunderland, England, ScS Upholstery PLC --
http://www.scs.co.uk/-- sells fabric and leather upholstered  
furniture from its retail stores, which trade under the ScS
brand name. The Company operates stores throughout the United
Kingdom.

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
