EIRLES FOUR: Fitch Junks Rating on EUR115 Million Series 42 CDO
---------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has downgraded one tranche of Eirles Four Limited
Series 42 funded mezzanine swap and removed Eirles Four Limited
Series 42 from Rating Watch Negative (RWN).

The rating actions reflect Fitch's view on the credit risk of the
rated tranches following the release of its new Corporate CDO
rating criteria.

   -- EUR115 million Series 42 due July 2013 (ISIN: XS0171953796):
      downgraded to 'CCC' (DR2) from 'B' (DR1)

Key drivers of this transaction's credit risk include an increase
of the portfolio's credit risk, with 22% of the portfolio now
rated sub-investment grade.  In addition, portfolio migration risk
has increased, with 11% of the portfolio on RWN and 15% on
Negative Outlook.  Fitch also notes the industry concentration of
32% in the two largest sectors, made up of 23% in banking and
finance, and 9% in telecommunications.

Given Fitch's view of concentration and the current credit quality
of the portfolio, as well as the remaining risk horizon, the
credit enhancement levels below are not sufficient to justify the
previous ratings of the tranches.

   -- Eirles Four Limited Series 42 due July 2013: 2.68%

Since the initial RWN action in June 2008, negative portfolio
migration impacted 16% of the portfolio.

At closing, Eirles Four Limited, a special purpose vehicle
incorporated in the Republic of Ireland, entered into one
mezzanine credit default swaps with Deutsche Bank AG London (rated
'F1+'), under which it provides notional protection on a static
reference portfolio of currently 99 corporate entities with a
total notional value of EUR735mn.

Fitch released its updated criteria on April 30, 2008 for
Corporate CDOs and, at that time, noted it would be reviewing its
ratings accordingly to establish consistency for existing and new
transactions.  As part of this review, Fitch makes standard
adjustments for any names on RWN or Negative Outlook, reducing
such ratings for default analysis purposes by two notches and one
notch, respectively.  Fitch has previously noted that its review
will be focused first on ratings most exposed to risks it has
highlighted in its updated criteria.  As such, the transaction was
placed on RWN on June 4, 2008.  As previously indicated,
resolution of the Rating Watch status depends on any plans
arrangers may choose to modify either the structure or the
portfolio.  In this case, the arranger has confirmed that it does
not intend to make any modifications.


MAGNOLIA FINANCE II: S&P Withdraws CCC- Rating on CDO Transaction
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services has withdrawn its CCC- rating
on the notes issued by Magnolia Finance II PLC's Azalea series
2007-1C, a synthetic collateralized debt obligation of
asset-backed securities (CDO of ABS) transaction.

The withdrawal follows the complete paydown of the class pursuant
to the Aug. 20, 2008, repurchase agreement.

ALITALIA SPA: Newco to Shed Cargo and Maintenance Units
-------------------------------------------------------
The reorganized Alitalia will focus on providing passenger
transport services and will stop its cargo and heavy maintenance
operations, Agenzia Giornalistica Italia reports, citing Compagnia
Aerea Italiana s.r.l. CEO Rocco Sabelli.

Mr. Sabelli told unions that Alitalia will continue focusing on
its core operations while offloading unrelated units.

"We have to follow logic and not ideology, Mr. Sabelli told
unions.  "It is imperative to focus on our core business: an
excellent company for passenger transport."

CAI's chief executive, however, said that "administrative
services, the call center, and IT, and the rest is all in."

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Europe on Sept. 3,
CAI, a consortium of local investors planning to acquire Alitalia,
has submitted a EUR400 million conditional offer to acquire some
assets of the national carrier.

The consortium includes:

    * AirOne S.p.A. of Carlo Toto;
    * IMMSI S.p.A. of Roberto Colaninno;
    * Atlantia S.p.A. of the Benetton family;
    * Intesa Sanpaolo S.p.A.;
    * Fondiaria SAI S.p.A.; and
    * 11-12 other investors.

The offer, valid for a few weeks, is subject to several conditions
including:

    * approval from Italian anti-trust agency and from the
      European Commission; and

    * acceptance by the trade union of 5,000-7,000 job cuts.

Augusto Fantozzi, Alitalia S.p.A.'s extraordinary commissioner,
confirmed receiving the offer.

                          About Alitalia

Based in Rome, Alitalia S.p.A. -- http://www.alitalia.it/--
provides air travel services for passengers and air transport of
cargo on national, international and inter-continental routes,
including United States, Canada, Japan and Argentina.  The
Italian government owns 49.9% of Alitalia.

Despite a EUR1.4 billion state-backed restructuring in 1997,
Alitalia posted net losses of EUR256 million and EUR907 million
in 2000 and 2001 respectively.  Alitalia posted EUR93 million in
net profits in 2002 after a EUR1.4 billion capital injection.
The carrier booked annual net losses of EUR520 million in 2003,
EUR813 million in 2004, EUR168 million in 2005, EUR625.6 million
in 2006, and EUR494.64 million in 2007.

Alitalia S.p.A. declared insolvency on Aug. 29, 2008, and filed
for commencement of extraordinary administration procedure at the
Tribunal of Rome.  Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has
appointed Augusto Fantozzi as extraordinary commissioner.


DA VINCI: Fitch Puts 'BB' Rating on Class C FR Note on Watch Neg.
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has placed the ratings of all outstanding classes of
notes of the Da Vinci Synthetic plc transaction on Rating Watch
Negative (RWN):

   -- EUR25.9 million Class A floating-rate notes: 'A-' (A minus);
      Rating Watch Negative

   -- EUR20.8 million Class B floating-rate notes: 'BBB'; Rating
      Watch Negative

   -- EUR15.6 million Class C floating-rate notes: 'BB'; Rating
      Watch Negative

The RWN follows Alitalia's Aug. 29 announcement that it has
decided to apply for bankruptcy protection at the Rome Court.

The Da Vinci Synthetic plc transaction is a synthetic
securitisation of a portfolio of financial leases and loans
secured on aircraft and associated aircraft collateral. Merrill
Lynch International Bank (MLI, ('A+' RWN)) entered into a credit
default swap (CDS) with Intesa Sanpaolo (IntesaSP ('AA-'(AA minus)
Stable Outlook)) under which it sold protection on a reference
portfolio of up to US$650 million.  All financial lease or loan
obligations (the reference portfolio) relate to the financing or
refinancing of aircrafts.  The current exposure towards Alitalia
amounts to 12.5% of the portfolio.

Under the terms and conditions of the CDS documentation,
bankruptcy of an airline constitutes a credit event if the
reference claims do not continue to be serviced by the relevant
airline, or the reference obligations become accelerated.
IntesaSP is allowed a period of up to 180 days commencing from the
date of the occurrence of the Credit Event to determine whether it
wishes to serve a Credit Event Notice on the CDS Counterparty and
the Issuer.  To date, no Credit Event Notice has been served.
However, given the transaction's exposure to Alitalia, Fitch has
decided to place all outstanding classes of notes on RWN.

Fitch will continue to closely monitor the situation and expects
to resolve the RWN after clarification on the course of action to
be taken by IntesaSP.

COMSTAR UNITED: Intergrates Stream-TV Group's Regional Assets
-------------------------------------------------------------
COMSTAR – United TeleSystems JSC has commenced the integration of
the regional operators of STREAM-TV Group, which is owned by
Sistema Mass Media, and providing cable TV and broadband internet
access services in 40 Russian cities with a combined population of
over 15 million people.

Comstar is taking over the management STREAM-TV Group, which is
the largest pay-TV operator in Russia and had a 17% share of the
Russian subscriber market as at the end of 2007.  The networks
pass over 3.5 million households and have over 1.5 million active
pay-TV subscribers and over 200 thousand broadband Internet
subscribers.

Approximately 30% of STREAM-TV Group's network has already been
modernized to enable the provision of triple-play services (VoIP,
Internet and pay-TV).  Comstar and STREAM-TV's regional broadband
market share stood at 13% as at the end of 20071.  STREAM-TV Group
reported revenues of US$89.8 million, and an OIBDA margin of 24.6%
for the 12 months ended Dec. 31, 2007.

The agreement follows the approval by the Comstar and SMM Boards
of Directors in July 2008 for the transfer of the STREAM-TV
business to Comstar.

The next stage of the integration process comprises the
acquisition of STREAM-TV Group from SMM.  The structure of the
deal is currently under discussion and the assets are being
independently valued by Ernst&Young.  Comstar expects to complete
the deal by the end of 2008.

Vitaly Savelyev, First Vice President of Sistema and Chairman of
Comstar's Board of Directors, commented: "The decision to separate
the operations of our subsidiaries is in line with the development
strategy for Sistema's telecommunications and media businesses.
Comstar will continue to focus on providing broadband access,
telephony services and pay-TV solutions, while Sistema Mass Media
will be responsible for multi-media activities, such as content
development and aggregation.  This structure will enable us to
further strengthen our business segments, and provide a powerful
impetus to the development of the telecommunications market by
further strengthening one of Russia's largest multi-service
telecommunications operators."

Sergey Pridantsev, President and Chief Executive Officer of
Comstar UTS, added:  "The consolidation of STREAM-TV under our
management will enable us to become a national broadband Internet
access provider in Russia.  We will service 67 Russian cities with
a combined population of over 48 million people.  We intend to
selectively modernize up to 90% of the newly acquired networks
using fiber-to-the-building technology.  We will combine the
networks to create a unified infrastructure providing a wide range
of telecommunications services -– telephony, Internet access and
pay-TV -– to the mass market.  In addition, we plan to further
extend the networks, in order to provide enhanced services for
corporate subscribers."

KOPEYKA JSC: S&P Lifts Corporate Credit Rating to CCC+
------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services has raised its long-term
corporate credit rating on Russian discount food retailer Open
Joint Stock Co. Trade House Kopeyka to 'CCC+' from 'CCC-' and
raised the Russia national scale rating to 'ruBB' from 'ruCCC-'.
At the same time, all the ratings were removed from CreditWatch,
where they were placed with developing implications on Dec. 14,
2007, following Kopeyka's public announcement of potential
shareholder support and management plans to obtain financing to
repay short-term maturities.  The outlook is stable.

The rating actions follow the company's successful fulfillment of
a bondholder put option on a RUR4 billion bond in August 2008 and
repayment of a RUR1.2 billion bond issue in June 2008, as well as
its public release of its 2007 financials under International
Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).

"The upgrade reflects our view that Kopeyka's immediate liquidity
issues have been resolved," said S&P's credit analyst Anton
Geyze.  "Shareholder support materialized in several forms,
helping the company to pay down one bond and successfully fulfill
the bondholder put option on another."

It also reflects S&P's view that the 2007 IFRS financials show
fair operating fundamentals in Kopeyka's core business in the
greater Moscow area.  However, liquidity continues to be
extremely stretched, with a significant debt maturity coming up
as early as February 2009.

The ratings on Kopeyka are primarily driven by the group's very
weak level of liquidity.  At the same time, credit quality
depends on the willingness of controlling shareholder Nikolai
Tsvetkov to continue providing support to the company.

The stable outlook balances the upcoming maturity refinancing
risks against possible shareholder support through Bank URALSIB
(OJSC) (BB-/Stable/B) or other vehicles -- similar to that
enjoyed by the company in June and August 2008 -- and a possible
equity increase through the participation of either Mr. Tsvetkov
or external investors.

"The ratings will be lowered if Kopeyka fails to fulfill its
obligations of an upcoming put option in February 2009," said
Mr. Geyze.  "Fulfilling the put option but failing to reduce the
debt burden would result in the ratings being kept at the current
level while outlook would likely be revised to negative."

Any upside is very remote, as S&P expects liquidity to remain
stretched for some time.

TNK-BP INT'L: Owners Sign MOU to Overhaul Governance Structure
--------------------------------------------------------------
An overhaul of the governance structure of Russia's third largest
oil company, TNK-BP, has been agreed in principle by the two main
owners, BP and Alfa Access-Renova.  The aim is to better align
their respective interests and improve the transparency of TNK-
BP's equity.

A memorandum of understanding signed on Thursday, Sept. 4, 2008,
and due to be finalized in detail over the coming months,
envisages the re-structuring of the TNK-BP board through the
appointment of three new directors independent of either side.
The MOU also includes an option to sell up to 20 per cent of a
subsidiary of TNK-BP through an initial public offering on the
international financial markets at an appropriate future point,
subject to the consent of the Russian authorities.

BP chairman Peter Sutherland said that an agreement would align
the two sides around a shared agenda for value growth and allow BP
and AAR to move forward, relieving recent tensions.

"It will create a stable base from which to grow the joint venture
to the benefit of everyone involved, including the Russian state
for which strong capital investment and continued technical
innovation to boost declining oil output are so important," Mr.
Sutherland said.

BP chief executive Tony Hayward described the agreement as "a
sensible means of resolving a situation that could not continue
without causing serious damage to what has been an immensely
successful joint venture for all concerned.

"I now look forward to a fruitful conclusion of negotiations so
that we can rebuild trust with AAR and resume our record of
success for the benefit of all parties," he said.  "A transparent,
responsible approach to governance will be a critical factor in
the appeal of TNK-BP to potential future investors, if the company
is to be fully valued on the financial markets."

The MOU envisages the appointment of a new independent chief
executive nominated by BP and approved by the TNK-BP board.  The
management committee, responsible for running operations, will be
reduced significantly from the current 14 members and will include
the chief executive, the chief operating officer, the chief
financial officer and an executive director.

The main board of TNK-BP will be adjusted in size to four
representatives each from BP and AAR, together with the three new
independent directors not affiliated to either side.  The company
will continue to operate under English law.

Current chief executive Bob Dudley will step down before the end
of the year.  In nominating his replacement, BP will offer a
Russian-speaking candidate with extensive Russian business
experience.  The new CEO will be explicitly incentivized to focus
on further improving transparency, financial returns and the
market value of the company's shares.

Describing Dudley as "an absolutely outstanding CEO of great
courage and strength of character", Mr. Hayward said: "Bob
originally intended to step down at the beginning of the year but
volunteered to stay in place to guide the joint venture through
what he realized would be a difficult transitional phase.  He will
be very hard to replace.

"During the last five years his leadership has been crucial in
building what is arguably the most successful oil business in
Russia, with the best record of production growth, reserves
replacement and total shareholder return.  He has overseen
extraordinary performance, financial and technical, delivering
dividends of more than US$20 billion during that period and paying
taxes and duties to the Russian Federation of over US$80 billion,
a record that is surely unrivaled," Mr. Hayward said.

                          About TNK-BP

The company was formed in 2003 as a result of the merger of BP's
Russian oil and gas assets and the oil and gas assets of Alfa,
Access/Renova group (AAR).  BP and AAR each own 50% of TNK-BP.

                          *     *     *

As reported in the TCR-Europe on Aug. 8, 2008, Standard & Poor's
Ratings Services lowered its long-term corporate credit and
senior unsecured debt ratings on TNK-BP International Ltd. to
'BB' from 'BB+', reflecting S&P's concerns over the group's
protracted shareholder dispute.

At the same time, S&P affirmed its 'B' short-term corporate
credit rating on the group.  The outlook is negative.


TNK-BP INTERNATIONAL: New Agreement Cues S&P's Negative Outlook
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services has revised its outlook on
Russia-based oil and gas company TNK-BP International Ltd. to
stable from negative, after its shareholders agreed in principle
on new governance structures.  The 'BB' long-term and 'B' short-
term corporate credit ratings on the company were affirmed.

"The outlook revision reflects S&P's opinion that the agreement is
a very important first step in resolving major differences
between TNK-BP's shareholders with equal 50% stakes, the oil major
BP PLC (AA/Stable/A-1+) and a consortium of Russian
investors Alfa-Access-Renova (not rated)," said S&P's credit
analyst Elena Anankina.  "This largely removes the rating
downside that could otherwise stem from the lack of strategic
direction in the context of protracted shareholding disputes
regarding control over the venture."

Under the new agreement, TNK-BP's board will include 11 members,
four from each shareholder plus three independents.  There will
be a new Chief Executive Officer and a new management structure.
In the medium term, there could also be an IPO of a minority
stake in TNK-BP's subsidiary, subject to the Russian authorities'
approval.  The Russian authorities have publicly welcomed the
agreement, which signals that TNK-BP is now unlikely to become a
target of specific government interference or large litigations.
This reduces its exposure to event risks, even though the general
risks of operating in Russia remain high.

The new deal will take time to finalize and implement and is
subject to major uncertainties.  "It will not be easy to find
independent directors and a new CEO, as well as other management
team members to replace managers who have recently left," said
Ms. Anankina.  "It also remains unclear so far whether the
group's financial policy regarding capital expenditures,
dividends, and leverage will change."  The shareholders'
disagreements have prevented the board from approving its 2008
capital expenditure budget and dividends up to now.

What's more, several months of past uncertainties and the
departure of BP technical specialists may affect TNK-BP's
operating performance in 2008-2009 and delay some new oil
exploration and development projects, such as Uvat or Russkoye,
even if replacements are gradually found.  It will also take some
time for the new management team to establish a track record.

The rating on TNK-BP reflects its position as the third largest
vertically integrated oil company in Russia, with large upstream
operations, profitable refining and marketing, together with
currently moderate debt levels.  High oil prices should boost
TNK-BP's 2008 profits.  S&P expects its net debt as of mid 2008
to have fallen from US$5.4 billion at year-end 2007, implying
comfortable credit metrics.  However, TNK-BP continues to face
considerable risks of operating in Russia, including a weak
institutional environment, resource nationalism, and very high
cost inflation.

SANTANDER CONSUMER SPAIN 07-2: S&P Affirms Cl. E Notes CCC- Rating
------------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services has placed on CreditWatch with
negative implications its credit ratings on the class B, C, and D
notes issued by Fondo de Titulizacion de Activos Santander
Consumer Spain Auto 06 and the class B and C notes issued by
Fondo de Titulizacion de Activos Santander Consumer Spain Auto
07-1 .  At the same time, S&P affirmed the ratings on the class A
notes in these transactions and all classes of notes issued by
Fondo de Titulizacion de Activos Santander Consumer Spain 07-2.
All other ratings in these transactions are unaffected.

The CreditWatch placements follow an initial review of the
basecase default assumptions that S&P used to rate these three
asset-backed securities (ABS) transactions originated by
Santander Consumer Finance.  S&P considers that, given current
collateral performance, this review could ultimately have a
negative rating effect on the junior notes issued by Consumer
Auto 06 and Consumer Auto 07-1.

In Consumer Auto 06, loans in arrears for more than 90 days
account for 1.58% of the outstanding pool balance, and have
exceeded the revolving period trigger threshold.  Consequently,
the transaction entered early amortization at the last payment
date. The comparable level in the Consumer Auto 07-1 transaction
is 1.09% of the current pool and though this transaction has not
breached its revolving period trigger threshold, S&P considers
that there is a heightened risk that this may occur at the
September interest payment date.

In contrast, S&P considers that its review will have no rating
effect on the notes issued by Consumer Spain 07-2.  Although this
transaction has already entered early amortization (90-day
arrears are over 1.5% of the outstanding pool balance) and S&P
believes that defaults could begin to rise from the final quarter
of the year, it considers that levels of credit enhancement
available to each class remain sufficient to maintain their
current ratings.

S&P will maintain close contact with the originator to monitor
the status of the delinquent loans in each case.  Additionally,
S&P will complete its updated credit analysis and re-run the cash
flows to assess whether credit enhancement levels for the classes
on CreditWatch are sufficient to support any new modeled default
levels at their respective rating categories.

The notes issued by Consumer Auto 06 and Consumer Auto 07-1 are
backed by a portfolio of Spanish consumer loans originated by
Santander Consumer Finance and granted to individuals and
enterprises for buying new or used cars.  The notes issued by
Consumer Spain 07-2 are backed by a portfolio of both auto and
consumer loans granted to individuals and businesses domiciled in
Spain.

GMAC LLC: To Streamline Mortgage Operations, Close Retail Offices
-----------------------------------------------------------------
GMAC Financial Services and its subsidiary Residential Capital,
LLC unveiled additional initiatives to further optimize the
mortgage business as the downturn in the credit and mortgage
markets persists. In response to these conditions, ResCap has
enacted a plan to significantly streamline its operation, reduce
cost, adjust its lending footprint and refocus its resources on
strategic lending and servicing.

On Sept. 2, 2008, a plan was approved that included closing all
200 GMAC Mortgage retail offices, ceasing originations through the
Homecomings wholesale broker channel, further curtailing business
lending and international business activities, and right-sizing
functional staff support.  In addition, the company is evaluating
strategic alternatives for the GMAC Home Services business and the
non-core servicing business.  These collective actions will reduce
the ResCap workforce by approximately 5,000 employees, or 60
percent.  Approximately 3,000 employees will receive notification
this month with the majority of the remaining 2,000 reductions
expected to occur by year-end.

"While these actions are extremely difficult, they are necessary
to position ResCap to withstand this challenging environment,"
said ResCap Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Tom Marano.

"Conditions in the mortgage and credit markets have not abated
and, therefore, we need to respond aggressively by further
reducing both operating costs and business risk."

ResCap will incur a charge expected to range from US$90 million to
US$120 million that reflects the 3,000 workforce reductions and
related operational streamlining initiatives.  The charge will
include costs related to severance and other employee-related
costs of approximately US$50 to US$60 million and facility closure
costs of approximately US$40 to US$60 million.  The majority of
the charge is expected to be reflected in the third quarter and
result in future cash expenditures of approximately US$55 million.
Potential charges related to the remaining 2,000 workforce
reductions have not yet been determined.

The workforce reductions will include a range of administrative
and managerial positions.  All eligible employees affected by the
workforce reduction will be provided severance packages and
outplacement assistance.

ResCap will continue to originate loans in the U.S. and
internationally where there is a secondary market to sell the
loans.  The company will originate products through its
correspondent and direct lending channels.  ResCap's commitment to
servicing loans is unchanged by the announced actions, and the
company will continue to expand and enhance its industry-leading
servicing platform, including further development of high-touch
special servicing operations to help preserve homeownership and
support investors that own distressed and special situation loan
portfolios.

GMAC LLC: Cutbacks to Curb Earnings, WSJ Report Says
----------------------------------------------------
Residential Capital LLC's plan to cut cost could sharply curtail
its ability to lend and its potential to earn, an article by
Aparajit Saha-Bubna of The Wall Street Journal states.

Parent GMAC Financial Services and ResCap have announced plans to
shut down all 200 GMAC Mortgage retail offices and 5,000 job cuts
or 60% of the workforce at ResCap by the end of the year.  ResCap
will also stop providing home loans through third-party brokers.
A related story appears in today's Troubled Company Reporter.

Job cuts, and office closures at the company could lead to savings
of US$1 billion each year starting in 2009, according to a company
official.  This is a significant amount considering that the
company's total expenses in 2007 was US$3.86 billion, the report
noted.

A director at Standard & Poor's analyzed ResCap's moves and its
effect on the ability of the company to generate profit after the
cutbacks.  Jack Bartko at S&P admits that after several quarterly
losses at ResCap, a billion dollars in saving is significant.  He
added, however, "But the question for us is, after you complete
these actions and have rationalized your infrastructure, what
business model are you left with? And what kind of profit margins
are you looking at?" he said, according to the report.

ResCap lost US$4.3 billion in 2007 and was loss-making for the
last seven quarters.

The report says Rescap's scaling back will leave it focusing
solely on prime mortgages that are bought by Fannie Mae and
Freddie Mac.  It adds, "While a safe business bet, profit margins
in this line of work are razor thin, with loan volume being a big
determinant of income."

Mr. Bartko reportedly said: "In large part, ResCap did have scale,
but across a much broader product spectrum," said Mr. Bartko.
Now, ResCap "is limiting itself to the narrowest of products in
terms of margin.  This raises questions of profitability even with
scale."

ARETON INT'L: Goes Into Administration; 20 Jobs Affected
--------------------------------------------------------
Wrexham, North Wales-based compounder Areton International
Plastics has gone into administration, resulting to the loss of
around 20 jobs, PRW.com reports.

According to the report, Areton's former Israeli parent, Kafrit,
acquired the goodwill and a substantial part of the equipment from
the administrator.

The former Areton products, which will be manufactured in Kafrit's
Constab factory in Germany and a Kafrit factory in Israel, will
now bear the Kafrit name, the report discloses.

"We tried very hard to sustain it.  We put a lot of effort into
it, but it wasn't working as we expected it.  Similar products
were being produced in the U.K., Germany and Israel, and the U.K.
factory was the least effective," Itzik Edry, Kafrit vice
president of sales and marketing, was quoted by the report as
saying.  "If you can produce in one or two sites, why do it in
three or four?"

Kafrit however assured Areton's existing customers that they will
receive the same level of service, the report notes.

Meanwhile, Kafrit plans to introduce a sales and marketing office
in the U.K.  Three staff from the former Areton operation will run
the office with former Areton sales and technical manager as head,
the report adds.

Suppliers owed money by Areton should contact the administrator,
Gary Bell of Cowgill Holloway in Manchester on 01204 41 42 43.

--------------------------------------------------------------

soda-lime glass manufacturer Slovglkass Poltar.

The report notes trading of Gleneagles was hit after supplies from
Slovglkass Poltar were restricted earlier this year.

We would "be trying to find a home for what is remaining of the
company and we have a number of interested parties,"
Mr. Travis was quoted by the report as saying.

Meanwhile, Gleneagles withdrew its plan to acquire the retail
distribution of Bormioli Rocco glassware in the U.K. from Chomette
Dornberger, although the Italian firm would consider future
partnership once a buyer is found, the report adds.

KENSINGTON MORTGAGE: S&P Puts Cl. B2 Notes BB Rating on WatchNeg.
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services has placed on CreditWatch with
negative implications its credit ratings on the class B1a, B1b,
and B2 notes issued by Kensington Mortgage Securities PLC, series
2007-1.  All other notes in this transaction are unaffected by
these CreditWatch placements.

The CreditWatch placements follow an initial review of the most
recent transaction information that S&P received.

This analysis showed that the likelihood of negative rating
actions has increased for all the classes listed below.  This is
partly due to the current and continuing decline in U.K. house
prices, leading to an expectation of higher losses on average for
those loans that ultimately do default.  As U.K. house prices are
likely to continue falling, S&P expects the more recently
originated U.K. RMBS transactions to be particularly susceptible
to this pressure.  Increased losses will place strain on excess
spread, leading to the possibility of reserve fund draws and a
decrease in credit enhancement.  S&P notes that in particular,
Kensington series 2007-1 has shown an erosion of excess spread
and an increase in losses, albeit from a low base, in recent
quarters.

S&P will continue to monitor the performance of this transaction
using the most recent loan-level data for its full credit and
cash flow analyses.  The results of S&P's analysis, together with
any effects on the ratings on any of the notes are expected to be
released within three months of this press release.

The notes, issued in March 2007, are backed by a portfolio of
first and second-ranking nonconforming residential mortgages
secured over owner-occupied properties in England, Wales, and
Scotland.

LEHMAN BROTHERS: WSJ Says KDB's Plan Could Face Regulatory Hurdles
------------------------------------------------------------------
Evan Ramstad of The Wall Street Journal says executives of Korea
Development Bank -- which, according to reports, has proposed to
acquire a stake in U.S. investment bank Lehman Brothers Holdings
Inc. -- face difficulties in finding partners for the acquisition.
They could also faces hurdles in convincing regulators who oversee
KDB.

Reports citing Chosun Ilbo, South Korea's largest mass-circulation
daily, say KDB has proposed to acquire a 25% stake in Lehman.  Dow
Jones reports that KDB is prepared to pay at least US$4.4 billion
for the stake.  Associate Press say KDB could offer as much as
US$5.3 billion.

Korea Development Bank is in talks to buy a stake in the
securities firm, Chief Executive Officer Min Euoo Sung said,
according to Bloomberg News.  But he refused to comment further.
WSJ says what Mr. Min told local reporters was only that he hopes
to form a consortium with other Korean banks and investors to
invest in the Wall Street bank.

Mr. Ramstad's report says a deal involving KDB, which is South
Korea's fifth-largest bank with assets of about US$120 billion,
faces numerous challenges, including that which could be posed by
regulators.  The South Korean government has plans of splitting
KDB into a holding company a separate development fund, and later
on privatizing the holding company.  According to the report, "Jun
Kwang-woo, chairman of the Financial Services Commission, which
regulates South Korea's banks, expressed skepticism at the idea of
a state-run firm taking a major role in a Wall Street investment
bank."

With regards to finding partners for the acquisition, the report
said several major South Korean financial institutions, including
Kookmin Bank, Hana Financial Group Inc. and Shinhan Financial
Group Co., said they are unwilling to join KDB in an investment in
or acquisition of Lehman.

Lehman has been struggling to keep up with the losses it had to
take in marking to market its mortgage assets, and is exploring
options to raise capital.

* S&P Says Accident-Year Performance in U.K. Motor Market Worsens
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that its analysis of the
U.K. motor insurance industry's reported results shows that
healthy reported numbers continue to hide high releases from
prior-year reserves "Premium Rate Increases Needed To Tow U.K.
Motor Insurance Industry Out Of The Red").

"The stable performance indicated by the headline results, as
measured by insurers' combined ratios, are supported in most
cases by ever-increasing sums from prior-year reserves," said
S&P's credit analyst Nigel Bond.  "Accident-year performance for
the motor market has been worsening steadily and the
accident-year combined ratio has been consistently higher than
100% since 2003."

                            *********

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

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

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

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