CHRYSLER LLC: Financial Unit Changes Top Management Line-Up
-----------------------------------------------------------
Chrysler Financial, the financing arm of Chrysler LLC, appointed
Thomas F. Gilman as vice chairperson and chief executive and
Darryl R. Jackson as chief operating officer, The Wall Street
Journal reports.

As part of the executives revamp, Paul Knauss, president and
CEO, and William F. Jones Jr., chief operating officer, are
retiring, WSJ adds.

According to WSJ, the position of vice chairman and CEO is a
combination of the former roles of executive vice chairman and
president and CEO.  Mr. Gilman had been executive vice chairman,
WSJ notes.  WSJ says that in his new role, Mr. Gilman will set
the strategic direction and ensure that the company's
performance is in line with investors' expectation.

Mr. Jackson was previously the vice president-U.S. sales of
Chrysler LLC.

Headquartered in Auburn Hills, Michigan, Chrysler LLC --
http://www.chrysler.com/-- a unit of Cerberus Capital
Management LP, produces Chrysler, Jeep(R), Dodge and Mopar(R)
brand vehicles and products.  The company has dealers worldwide,
including Canada, Mexico, U.S., Germany, France, U.K.,
Argentina, Brazil, Venezuela, China, Japan and Australia.

                          *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter June 24, 2008,
Moody's Investors Service affirmed the B3 Corporate Family
Rating and Probability of Default Rating of Chrysler LLC, but
changed the outlook to negative from stable.  The change in
outlook reflects the increasingly challenging environment faced
by Chrysler as the outlook for U.S.  vehicle demand falls, and
as high fuel costs drive U.S.  consumers away from light trucks
and SUVs, and toward more fuel efficient vehicles.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on May 9, 2008,
Fitch Ratings downgraded the Issuer Default Rating of Chrysler
LLC to 'B' from 'B+', with a Negative Rating Outlook.  Fitch has
also downgraded the senior secured bank facilities, including
senior secured first-lien bank loan to 'BB/RR1' from 'BB+/RR1';
and senior secured second-lien bank loan to 'CCC+/RR6' from
'BB+/RR1'.  The recovery rating on the second lien was also
downgraded from 'BB+/RR1' to 'CCC+/RR6' based on lower asset
value assumptions and associated recoveries in the event of a
stress scenario.

INVISTA: Files Trade Secrets Suit Against Rhodia & DuPont
---------------------------------------------------------
INVISTA, on Friday, August 15, 2008, sued Rhodia and DuPont in
federal court alleging they are teaming up to misappropriate
INVISTA's world-leading adiponitrile (ADN) technology and are
unlawfully using INVISTA's trade secrets to expand in the nylon
chemicals business.

"Our proprietary ADN technology is an enormously valuable trade
secret, and INVISTA takes protecting its trade secrets and other
intellectual property very seriously," said Mary Beth Jarvis,
INVISTA spokesperson.

"This suit was necessary to stop Rhodia and DuPont from
unlawfully using INVISTA's intellectual property to build an ADN
manufacturing plant in Asia or elsewhere.  We're asking the
court to put an end to Rhodia's and DuPont's misconduct and
award damages for the harm they have caused," Ms. Jarvis said.

The INVISTA trade secrets at issue relate to its proprietary
process for producing adiponitrile, a critical intermediate
chemical used in the manufacture of nylon 6,6.  INVISTA bought
the original technology several years ago from DuPont as part of
a US$4.2 billion transaction and has built upon that technology
to earn a world-leading position in the manufacture of ADN,
Ms. Jarvis said.

When it sold the technology to INVISTA, DuPont signed an
agreement prohibiting it from competing against INVISTA or
making investments in competitors for an agreed-upon period,
which has yet to expire.  As explained in the lawsuit, Rhodia
obtained unlawful access to the trade secrets through a France-
based joint venture between affiliates of INVISTA and Rhodia.

Public statements by Rhodia and DuPont indicate that Rhodia is
using INVISTA's trade secrets to develop and operate an
adiponitrile (ADN) manufacturing facility in Asia.  DuPont
recently disclosed that it is an investor in Rhodia's ADN
expansion plans.

The lawsuit seeks preliminary and permanent injunctive relief
preventing Rhodia and DuPont from using and disclosing INVISTA
trade secret information in developing their own plant or using
that trade secret information to compete unfairly in the
marketplace.  It also asserts claims for damages for violations
of various sections of the Lanham Act, misappropriation and
misuse of trade secrets, breach of various contracts between
DuPont and INVISTA, conversion, tortious interference with
contracts, and conspiracy.

                      About INVISTA

Headquartered in Wichita, Kansas, INVISTA --
http://www.invista.com/-- is engaged in textile and polymer
manufacturing.  INVISTA is composed of five business units --
Apparel, Interiors, Intermediates, Performance Materials, and
Polymers and Resins -- and its portfolio includes brand names
Stainmaster, Lycra, and Thermolite.  Its products are used in
clothing, plastic packaging, automobile airbags, and
pharmaceutical ingredients.  DuPont sold INVISTA to Koch
Industries in 2004.  Koch then merged the company with its own
fibers unit, KoSa, leaving only INVISTA remaining.  INVISTA has
operations in 86 countries, including Germany, Switzerland, Hong
Kong, China, Mexico and Brazil.

                           *     *     *

Invista B.V. carries 'BB-' unsecured debt rating from Standard &
Poor's.  S&P raised the rating to its current level in July
2007.


INVISTA BV: S&P Puts BB Corporate Credit Rating on WatchNegative
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services has placed all its ratings,
including its 'BB' corporate credit rating, on INVISTA B.V. and
its subsidiaries on CreditWatch with negative implications.

"The CreditWatch listing reflects the deterioration of key
measures of credit quality and follows a sequential weakening in
the company's operating results due to a spike in raw material
costs as well as soft conditions in housing, auto, and beverage
packaging markets," said S&P's credit analyst Cynthia Werneth.

If performance remains weak and the company takes no other
actions, it could be in danger of violating the covenants in its
primary bank credit facility within the next couple of quarters.
However, in view of recent business trends, as well as ambitious
capital spending plans, INVISTA is currently pursuing
alternative capital sources that could provide relief from
covenant pressures.

Total debt outstanding at June 30, 2008, was about US$2.8
billion, including about US$220 million of capitalized operating
leases, unfunded postretirement liabilities, and asset
retirement obligations.

At June 30, 2008, the company had nearly US$500 million of
liquidity, including more than US$300 million of cash.

S&P expects to resolve the CreditWatch within the next several
weeks after meeting with management to discuss the prognosis for
its businesses and its financing plans.

INVISTA is a major manufacturer of fibers including nylon,
polyester, and spandex, as well as intermediate chemicals used
to manufacture them.  It also holds large positions in
downstream applications such as fibers used in nylon carpeting
and airbags.  Annual revenues are about US$9 billion.

ALERIS INTERNATIONAL: S&P Puts BB- Term Loan Rating on Watch Neg
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services placed its 'BB-' issue rating
on Aleris International Inc.'s US$825 million and its €303
million term loan B both due 2013 on CreditWatch with negative
implications.  As of June 30, 2008, total debt outstanding was
about US$3 billion, adjusted for operating leases and
postretirement obligations.

The CreditWatch listing reflects the potential for lower
recovery prospects for the company's existing term loan lenders
following the recent announcement by Aleris that it was seeking
an increase to its existing asset-based (ABL) revolving credit
facility due 2011 to US$1.2 billion from US$850 million. S&P
currently does not maintain ratings on the company's ABL credit
facility.

"In resolving our CreditWatch listing, we will monitor the
status of the proposed increase and its impact on recovery
prospects of existing term loan lenders," said Standard & Poor's
credit analyst Maurice Austin.

FAGE DAIRY: S&P Corrects B Corp. Credit Rating Affirmation to B-
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services has revised its outlook to
negative from stable on Greece-based dairy company Fage Dairy
Industry S.A.  At the same time, S&P affirmed its 'B-' long-term
corporate credit rating and the issue rating on the company's
EUR130 million 7.5% senior unsecured notes due 2015.

"The outlook revision reflects the EUR5.4 million operating loss
Fage posted in the three months ended June 2008, which marks a
negative trend that it will be challenged to reverse, primarily
due to the continuing competitive pressure in its core domestic
market," said S&P's credit analyst Diego Festa.  "In addition,
it remains unclear how soon Fage will get the full profit
contribution from its new production facility in the U.S."  The
continuing volatility of operating profits means that Fage might
find it difficult to gain access to additional working capital
funding, further complicating the operating turnaround.

The ratings on Fage reflect its highly leveraged financial
profile, in particular in the light of the recent volatility of
earnings.  Fage's business profile is constrained by the
company's geographical concentration in, and reliance on, its
domestic Greek market, given only modest yet increasing exports;
its low profitability, which, in addition to the recent
operating pressures, is due to substantial related-party
transactions; and its aggressive financial policy.  These
factors are tempered by Fage's still leading, although weakened,
position in its domestic market and the increased contribution
from export operations, representing about one-fourth of the
company's net sales in the six months ended June 2008.

Fage is confronted with rising price-led competition in the more
traditional product segments in Greece, with the promotional
initiatives, such as 'buy two, get one free', undertaken by its
main competitors; the challenges of adapting to ever-more-varied
product offerings; and the increasing concentration of multiple
outlet retailers, which accounted for about 75% of Fage's end
market in full-year 2007.  These factors, together with the
adverse impact of three yogurt product recalls on quality issues
since April 2005, have eroded the company's leading share of the
Greek branded-yogurt market, which in terms of volume
represented 31% at Dec. 31, 2007, down from 47% three years
earlier.

Revenue pressure coming from an adverse pricing environment as
Fage tries to defend its market share in Greece, has coincided
with the weakening of the U.S. dollar and the pound sterling
against the euro because increased exports are confronted with a
cost function that is still largely euro based.  On top of this,
there has been a sharp spike in raw milk prices in Europe in the
past 12 months.  The resulting pressure on operating margins has
further hindered Fage's ability to improve its competitive
standing in Greece.  Reduced advertising costs and third-party
fees, with no compensation to the shareholders and family
members, have only partially mitigated this negative trend.
Fage's growing U.S. business has so far been unable to provide
an adequate profit contribution, due to the ongoing shift to
selling yoghurt produced locally in the U.S. from
Europe-produced yogurt.

Fage's management's target is to lift U.S. operations to 40% of
group's EBITDA in the medium term.  However, in the near term,
they are not expected to offset fully the reduction in profits
at domestic operations.  On a positive note, the company's new
yogurt plant in the U.S. started its operations in April 2008.
This venture will mean that operating profits should benefit
from reduced costs -- such as transportation and milk -- and
import tariffs will be avoided.

"The negative outlook reflects the possibility that Fage might
not be able to restore its operating profitability in the near
term," said Mr. Festa.  Fage's current operating loss results
from both operating issues in its Greek yogurt market and the
launch of its new facility in the U.S. Margin pressure is likely
to continue in the coming quarters, making the steady build-up
of sales from the U.S. facility critical for eventual recovery.
Tightening liquidity would also increase near-term pressure on
the ratings.

The ratings could be lowered if Fage suffers further significant
market share losses in its domestic market or if further
negative free cash flow reduces headroom under Fage's covenants
even more.

ANSONIA CDO: S&P Downgrades Rating on Class Q Securities to CCC+
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its ratings on 15
classes of notes issued by Ansonia CDO 2007-1 Ltd., a hybrid
cash flow/synthetic collateralized debt obligation (CDO)
transaction, and removed five of them from CreditWatch with
negative implications, where they were placed on May 28, 2008.
At the same time, S&P affirmed its 'AAA' ratings on the class A-
1 and A-2 notes.

The downgrades and CreditWatch removals reflect credit
deterioration as well as the incorporation of Standard & Poor's
revised recovery rate assumptions for commercial mortgage-backed
securities.

As of the July 21, 2008, trustee report, approximately 29% of
the underlying collateral (as of Aug. 14, 2008) was rated below
investment grade, compared with approximately 21% as of the
first trustee report issued in August 2007.

Standard & Poor's will continue to monitor the performance of
the transaction to ensure that the ratings continue to reflect
the credit quality of the obligors within the collateral pool
and that the credit enhancement available is sufficient to
support the rated notes.

GENERAL MOTORS: To Meet w/ Zastava in Sept. for Opel Astra Sales
----------------------------------------------------------------
General Motors and officials from Serbian carmaker Zastava will
meet next month to decide whether to continue local assembly and
sales of the Opel Astra after Zastava signed a joint-venture
with Fiat SpA, Bloomberg News reports, citing newspaper
Vecernje Novosti.

According to the report, the two sides will review the
feasibility of further assembly of Opel cars at Zastava's plant
in Kragujevac, 100 kilometers (62 miles) southeast of the
capital, and sales through its network.

The report relates that Zastava will offer that General Motors
relocate its Opel assembly line to a Zastava plant that will not
be sold to Fiat or to build a new plant.

Fiat is opposed to a deal that would allow for assembly of a
competitor's car in its plant, the report notes.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on June 24, 2008,
DBRS has placed the ratings of General Motors Corporation and
General Motors of Canada Limited Under Review with Negative
Implications.  The rating action reflects the structural
deterioration of the company's operations in North America
brought on by high oil prices and a slowing U.S. economy.

Standard & Poor's Ratings Services 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.

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.

GENERAL MOTORS: To Meet w/ Zastava in Sept. for Opel Astra Sales
----------------------------------------------------------------
General Motors and officials from Serbian carmaker Zastava will
meet next month to decide whether to continue local assembly and
sales of the Opel Astra after Zastava signed a joint-venture
with Fiat SpA, Bloomberg News reports, citing newspaper
Vecernje Novosti.

According to the report, the two sides will review the
feasibility of further assembly of Opel cars at Zastava's plant
in Kragujevac, 100 kilometers (62 miles) southeast of the
capital, and sales through its network.

The report relates that Zastava will offer that General Motors
relocate its Opel assembly line to a Zastava plant that will not
be sold to Fiat or to build a new plant.

Fiat is opposed to a deal that would allow for assembly of a
competitor's car in its plant, the report notes.

                          *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on June 24, 2008,
DBRS has placed the ratings of General Motors Corporation and
General Motors of Canada Limited Under Review with Negative
Implications.  The rating action reflects the structural
deterioration of the company's operations in North America
brought on by high oil prices and a slowing U.S. economy.

Standard & Poor's Ratings Services 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.

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.

      Archiving."

    * Wins and new sales opportunities across disparate
      industries including public sector, manufacturing,
      healthcare and pharmaceutical. This reflects the position
      maintained by the Company that every organization will
      need software assistance to manage their electronic
      records.

    * A major competitive replacement an at international
      medical device provider, continuing the trend of
      competitive wins as organizations reevaluate their
      archiving technology and vendor selection.

    * Announcement of a patent-pending new product, Dynamic Data
      Migrator(TM).  The product leverages the company's current
      archiving and electronic records management technology to
      provide a unique approach for organizations migrating
      their messaging platform from Lotus Notes to Microsoft
      Exchange.

    * Endorsement from Microsoft of Dynamic Data Migrator and
      expansion of AXS-One’s current partnership with the
      company.  Microsoft has identified their "Notes Transition
      Program" as a strategic initiative for the current fiscal
      year and, per their quote in the product announcement, is
      excited by the product's ability to "have a dramatic
      effect on the cost and time it takes customer to migrate."

"We are seeing steady progress in our core business of
electronic records archiving and are particularly excited about
the opportunity presented by Microsoft to migrate millions of
users that have already committed to convert from Notes to
Exchange, using our software products and methodology," Bill
Lyons, Chairman & CEO of AXS-One, commented.  "We are actively
engaged with the Microsoft team, which has validated and
endorsed our technology and methodology and are now introducing
us into their client opportunities.  We expect this partnership
to drive a significant improvement in our financial results
starting this year."

million in license fees for the first six months last year.

months of 2008, a decrease of 11.3% from US$12.6 million in the
prior year.  The operating loss narrowed to US$3.9 million for
the first six months of 2008, down from an operating loss of
US$6.4 million in the first six months of last year. The net
loss for the first six months of 2008 was US$4.7 million,
compared to a net loss of US$6.3 million for the
comparable prior-year period.

"Corporate leaders continue to recognize the importance of
implementing electronic records management solutions as a key
risk management tool," Mr. Lyons continued.  "The changes in the
processes for litigation, including the new Federal Rules of
Civil Procedure, remain a catalyst for us as enterprises
recognize the need to pro-actively manage their electronically
stored information.  This trend demonstrates that industry
leaders recognize the growing trend in this area, and
increasingly see AXS-One as an emerging leader.  As a pioneer in
providing archiving and electronic records management for
disparate record types for 15 years, AXS-One is uniquely
positioned to exploit this emerging and accelerating
opportunity."

                       Going Concern Doubt

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on April 25, 2008,
Amper, Politziner, & Mattia, P.C., in Edison, N.J., expressed
substantial doubt about AXS-One Inc.'s ability to continue as a
going concern after auditing the company's consolidated
financial statements for the years ended Dec. 31, 2007, and
2006.  The auditing firm pointed to the company's losses from
operations and working capital deficiency.

The company has generated losses from operations of US$1,752,000
for the three months ended March 31, 2008.  Additionally, the
company was not in compliance with its quarterly license revenue
covenant as of March 31, 2008.  The bank waived such violation
and changed the covenants for future periods from a minimum
license revenue covenant and minimum three month rolling net
loss covenant to (a) a minimum three month rolling EBITDA
covenant, (b) minimum cash and accounts receivable availability
covenant and (c) a minimum equity infusion covenant of
US$500,000.


BAA LTD: Completes GBP13.3 Billion Airport Refinancing
------------------------------------------------------
BAA Limited has successfully completed the GBP13.3 billion
refinancing of its United Kingdom airports.

The transaction establishes a stable, long-term, investment
grade financing platform for investment in Heathrow, Gatwick and
Stansted airports over the coming decades.  Included in the
GBP13.3 billion is GBP3 billion of committed facilities to fund
immediate investment projects across the seven airports.

Colin Matthews, Chief Executive of BAA, said: "The successful
completion of the refinancing and establishment of the long-term
funding platform ensures that BAA has the right financial
structure to deliver our ambitious investment program to expand
airport capacity, build new facilities and provide a better
service to passengers and airlines."

"This is the largest financing of its kind ever completed, and
the fact that a landmark transaction of this size and complexity
has been completed in challenging credit markets is a testament
to the strength of the business and the confidence of the
financial markets in BAA and its airports."

                     Transaction Overview

Implementation of the financing comprised three key elements:

   1. A corporate reorganization to separate financing of the
      Designated Airports (Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted) and
      the Non-Designated Airports (Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen
      and Southampton) into ring-fenced groups.

   2. The establishment of a long term financing platform for
      the Designated Airports, including a GBP7.15 billion bank
      facility consisting of term loans and capex facilities
      arranged by a group of Mandated Lead Arranging banks being
      Banco Santander, BBVA, BNP Paribas, Caja Madrid, Calyon,
      Citi, HSBC Bank, Royal Bank of Canada and The Royal Bank
      of Scotland.

      The European Investment Bank (EIB) provided additional
      loan facilities, and Lloyds TSB provided liquidity lines.

      Banco Santander, BBVA, BNP Paribas, Caja Madrid, Calyon,
      Citi, HSBC Bank, Royal Bank of Canada and The Royal Bank
      of Scotland are Dealers under the Financing Programme
      while Citi and The Royal Bank of Scotland acted as Co-
      Arrangers of the Financing Programme and as Dealer
      Managers on the migration of existing BAA bonds into the
      new platform

   3. A separate GBP1.255 billion bank financing for the Non-
      Designated Airports arranged by a group of Mandated Lead
      Arranging banks comprising of Citi, Export Development
      Canada, HSH Nordbank, ICO, ING, La Caixa, and The Royal
      Bank of Scotland.

Clifford Chance was legal counsel to the various arranger and
creditor parties.  BAA was advised on the Transaction by
Macquarie Capital and Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer.

Financing of the Designated Airports

The financing for Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted represents the
largest financing of its type ever completed.

GBP12.1 billion of debt facilities have been migrated or raised
against the Designated Airports to repay the acquisition
facilities put in place in 2006 and to provide BAA with
financing for its investment program.  The establishment of a
funding program allows for the issuance of two classes of debt.
S&P and Fitch have rated the Class A debt with a strong
investment grade rating of "A-" and have rated the Class B debt
at "BBB' recognizing the strong and stable nature of the
airports and the positive structural features of the financing.

Of the GBP12.1 billion of debt raised for the Designated
Airports:

    * GBP4.5 billion results from the migration of BAA's
      existing long term bond debt into the new structure.
      These bondholders overwhelmingly supported BAA's new
      financing strategy

    * GBP4.4 billion represents new bank facilities

    * GBP440 million was provided by the European Investment
      Bank

    * GBP2.75 billion represents new committed, undrawn bank
      facilities to fund working capital and immediate planned
      investment projects to provide much needed expansion of
      capacity and improve the passenger experience at the three
      London airports.

In addition to the senior facilities listed above, and following
a partial prepayment, a GBP1.56 billion of subordinated facility
will continue to enjoy a second-ranking charge over the
Designated Airports and rank below the secured senior debt ring-
fence.

The GBP4.5 billion of bonds previously issued by BAA Limited
have been canceled and replaced by new bonds issued by a new
funding vehicle, BAA Funding Limited, following a successful
bondholder vote on Aug. 5, 2008 where over 99% of bondholders
(by value) approved the resolutions.

The Funding Programme established by BAA for the Designated
Airports allows access to both the bank and bond markets in a
range of maturities and currencies to maximize financing
flexibility for BAA's ambitious investment program.  BAA's
intention is to issue bonds in the capital markets to refinance
its bank facilities over time and the company looks forward to
the continued support of the UK, European and US bond markets.

Financing of the Non-Designated Airports

BAA has secured GBP1.255 billion of seven-year bank facilities.
The facilities consist of GBP1 billion of term loans and a
GBP255 million capex and working capital facility, secured
against the Non-Designated Airports and available to finance
investment in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen and Southampton.

BAA LTD: July 2008 Passenger Traffic Down 1.7% to 14.8 Million
--------------------------------------------------------------
BAA's UK airports handled a total of 14.8 million passengers in
July 2008, a drop of 1.7% on the same month last year.  A
combination of a weakening economic climate, rising airfares and
airline capacity cuts meant that each airport in the group and
most major markets lost ground in July.  Year to date BAA UK
airports traffic shows a decline of 0.8%.

Among key markets the most affected are European flights (-1.4%)
and UK Domestic (- 4.5%).  The stimulus of Open Skies helped
North Atlantic traffic to an increase of 0.6% but other long
haul routes saw a collective decline of 1.7%.

Heathrow was virtually unchanged on last year, thanks to Open
Skies, showing an increase of approximately 6.5% in long haul
routes, but Gatwick's losses from the same source due to the
shift of long haul traffic to Heathrow contributed to an overall
decrease of 1.8% despite an 11.9% increase in European scheduled
traffic.  Stansted was down by 5.3%.  Each of the Scottish
airports also recorded slight reductions on last July.

In total the numbers of air transport movements was 0.5% lower
than a year ago but cargo tonnage was up by 2.6% overall, with
Heathrow recording an increase of 10.8%.

BAA LTD: S&P Withdraws BB- Corp. Credit Rating at Firm's Request
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services has revised its CreditWatch
status on the 'BBB-' senior unsecured debt ratings on the
guaranteed nonconvertible bonds issued by U.K.-based airports
operator BAA Ltd. to positive from developing, where they
were placed on April 16, 2008.

The revision of the CreditWatch status reflects the fact that
the bondholders in each of the outstanding debt issues have
consented to an exchange of their securities into various new
class A debt securities issued by BAA Funding Ltd. under its
GBP50 billion multicurrency program.  S&P rated the new
securities 'A-', reflecting, among other things, the
first-ranking security over three designated airports (London
Heathrow, London Gatwick, and London Stansted) and Heathrow
Express as well as an asset and financial covenant package.
("Ratings Assigned To 1st Issuance In BAA Funding's Landmark
U.K. Airports Securitization," published on RatingsDirect.)

Subsequently, the ratings on the debt issued by BAA Ltd. were
withdrawn, reflecting the execution of the exchange of the
bonds.

At the same time, the long-term 'BB-' corporate credit rating on
BAA Ltd., which was on CreditWatch with developing implications,
was withdrawn at the company's request.

All ratings on BAA Ltd. were originally placed on CreditWatch
with negative implications on March 17, 2006, following a
takeover proposal from Airport Development and Investment Ltd.,
a consortium led by Spanish concession and construction group
Grupo Ferrovial S.A.

* S&P Reports New Risk Value Analysis for Euro Life Insurance
-------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services has published a report
detailing the new metrics it is introducing to improve the
comparability of company performance in the European life
insurance sector.

"Embedded value has become Standard & Poor's primary tool for
assessing operating performance within this sector," said S&P's
credit analyst Miroslav Petkov.  "It reflects the risks to which
a company is exposed by capturing the expected costs of these
risks to the company."

S&P's ratings analysis includes not only how well a company
allows for risks in its economic valuation, but also the extent
to which its worth could be affected under adverse
circumstances.  S&P is therefore introducing new metrics, based
on embedded value, to assess company exposure to risk and the
quality of their earnings.


                            *********

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
