KREMIKOVTZI AD: Liabilities Exceed Assets, Receiver Says
--------------------------------------------------------
Kremikovtzi AD's assets aren't enough to cover its liabilities,
Elizabeth Konstantinova at Bloomberg News reports, citing
Tsvetan Bankov, the company's receiver.

Bloomberg relates Mr. Bankov told reporters in Sofia Thursday the
plant has assets worth BGN840 million (US$612.5 million) and
liabilities of BGN1.9 billion, 42% of which are owed to state-run
power and gas utilities, the State Railways and tax authorities.

Bloomberg recalls the receiver proposed a rehabilitation plan in
July offering creditors the choice of a debt swap or getting
repaid under national insolvency laws.  Mr. Bankov, as cited by
Bloomberg, said the evaluation of how much each creditor is owed
will be completed by Sept. 28.

"The value of recovery via liquidation is so low," Bloomberg
quoted Angelo Moskov, a partner at bondholder QVT Financial LP in
London, saying in response to e-mailed questions.  "Creditors are
much better off by converting debt into equity and restructuring
the company into a new debt-free company."

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Europe on Aug. 26,
2009, Novinite.com, citing Traicho Traikov, Bulgaria's economy and
energy minister, said the government may opt to liquidate
Kremikovtzi or implement a healing plan.

On Sept. 1, 2009, the Troubled Company Reporter-Europe, citing
Novinite.com, reported Kremikovtzi's 57 largest creditors are
ready to capitalize their debts and become shareholders of the
company.  Bloomberg disclosed Podkrepa union leader Lyudmil Pavlov
said that if creditors vote in favor of the recovery program as he
expects, there will be no need for the government to liquidate the
mill.

                       About Kremikovtzi

Headquartered in Sofia, Bulgaria, Kremikovtzi AD --
http://www.kremikovtzi.com/-- is a company principally engaged in
the steel industry.  Its production capacity includes a complete

process since August 6, 2008.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Europe on Aug. 8,
2008, the Sofia City Court commenced insolvency proceedings
against Kremikovtzi AD after declaring it bankrupt.  The court
appointed a temporary bankruptcy administrator for the steelmaker.
The court also ruled that Kremikovtzi's insolvency started on
Dec. 31, 2005.  As of Dec. 31, 2007, the company had BGN1.63
billion (US$1.3 billion) in total debts.

ARCANDOR AG: Thomas Cook Stake to Be Sold This Week
---------------------------------------------------
Rachel Graham at Bloomberg News, citing the Sunday Times, reports
that Arcandor AG's 43.9% stake in Thomas Cook Group Plc is set to
be sold this week.

According to Bloomberg, the newspaper said the stake, which is
worth more than GBP800 million (US$1.3 billion), is held by
Bayerische Landesbank, Royal Bank of Scotland Group Plc and
Commerzbank AG.

Roger Blitz at The Financial Times reports that a placing of
Arcandor's Thomas stake is penciled in for Thursday after the
banking consortium headed by Royal Bank of Scotland, Commerzbank
and Bayern LB chose it as the preferred option above a sale to a
strategic buyer.  According to the FT, Thomas cook insiders said
the situation was moving towards a placement, but the timetable
had not been finalized.  Citing one of the company insiders, the
FT discloses the consortium received offers of a 29.9% stake from
some interested parties.

The FT recalls Arcandor pledged shares in the FTSE 100-listed
Thomas Cook to guarantee loans from its creditors but went
bankrupt after the German government rejected its plea for loan
guarantees in June and the group failed to win investor backing to
stay intact.

                        About Arcandor AG

Germany-based Arcandor AG (FRA:ARO) -- http://www.arcandor.com/--
formerly KarstadtQuelle AG, is a tourism and retail group.  Its
three core business areas are tourism, mail order services and
department store retail.  The Company's business areas are covered
by its three operating segments: Thomas Cook, Primondo and
Karstadt.  Thomas Cook Group plc is a tour operator with
operations in Europe and North America, set up as a result of a
merger between MyTravel and Thomas Cook AG.  It also operates the
e-commerce platform, Thomas Cook, supporting travel services.
Primondo has a portfolio of European universal and specialty mail
order companies, including the core brand Quelle.  Karstadt
operates a range of department stores, such as cosmopolitan
stores, including KaDeWe (Kaufhaus des Westens), Karstadt
Oberpollinger and Alsterhaus; Karstadt brand department stores;
Karstadt sports department stores, offering sports goods in a
variety of retail outlets, and a portal, karstadt.de that offers
online shopping, among others.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Europe, on June 9,
2009, Arcandor filed for bankruptcy protection after the German
government turned down its request for loan guarantees.  On
June 8, 2009, the government rejected two applications for help by
the company, which employs 43,000 people.  The retailer sought
loan guarantees of EUR650 million (US$904 million) from Germany's
Economy Fund program.  It also sought a further EUR437 million
from a state-owned bank.


DECO SERIES: Fitch Junks Ratings on Class H Notes From 'BBB-'
-------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has downgraded three classes of DECO Series 2005 -
Pan Europe 1 plc and affirmed the transaction's other five
classes.

The rating actions are:

  -- EUR51.5 million class A2 due July 2014 (XS0227107538)
     affirmed at 'AAA'; Outlook Stable

  -- EUR27.8 million class B due July 2014 (XS0227110326) affirmed
     at 'AAA'; Outlook Stable

  -- EUR45.0 million class C due July 2014 (XS0227112884) affirmed
     at 'AAA'; Outlook Stable

  -- EUR11.2 million class D due July 2014 (XS0235684114) affirmed
     at 'AA'; Outlook revised to Negative from Stable

  -- EUR28.1 million class E due July 2014 (XS0227113692) affirmed
     at 'A'; Outlook revised to Negative from Stable

  -- EUR22.5 million class F due July 2014 (XS0227115630)
     downgraded to 'BB' from 'BBB'; Outlook Negative

  -- EUR14.1 million class G due July 2014 (XS0227116950)
     downgraded to 'B' from 'BBB'; Outlook Negative

  -- EUR6.5 million class H due July 2014 (XS0227117503)
     downgraded to 'CCC' from 'BBB-'; assigned a Recovery Rating
     of RR5

The downgrade of the junior classes reflects the impact on the six
remaining loans in the portfolio of the downturn in the European
commercial real estate market and the uncertainty surrounding
upcoming loan maturities.  The Project Suisse loan, the second
largest loan in the portfolio at 22.8%, matures in January 2010,
while the Hanover loan (17.1%) and the Trabrennbahn loan (6.1%)
both mature in July 2010.  The Trabrennbahn loan is cross-
defaulted and cross-collateralized with the largest loan in the
portfolio (Deutsche Post, 24%).  This exposes the portfolio to
significant balloon risk in the coming quarters, which is
exacerbated by the presence of B-notes in all the loans.  This
loan structure increases overall leverage and is likely to
complicate potential re-financings of the affected loans.

Project Suisse is secured by three retail properties in western
Switzerland.  The properties are not in prime locations, however,
the overall Swiss property market has experienced a milder decline
in property values than the rest of the continent.  The dominant
tenant is Coop, the grocery retailer, which provides 38% of total
rental income.  The lease profile is strong as the majority of
leases expire between 2022 and 2024 and all leases are scheduled
to be outstanding at loan maturity.  The debt service coverage
ratio (DSCR) has been relatively stable and the current whole loan
DSCR of 1.18x sits above the cash trap trigger of 1.1x.  Despite
the strong income performance, Fitch believes that the secondary
nature of the three properties and the substantial leverage of the
B-note (Fitch estimates a whole loan LTV of 130%) create
uncertainty surrounding the potential re-financing of the Project
Suisse loan, which has been factored into the agency's analysis.

The two loans maturing in July 2010 are secured by two office
properties (Hanover loan) and three retail properties located in
Berlin (Trabrennbahn loan).  The Hanover properties are
predominantly let to government-related entities, accounting for
85.3% of rental income, with a weighted average remaining lease
length of 4.7 years.  The Trabrennbahn properties are 100%
occupied and two are fully let to Getranke Hoffman, a beverage
retailer, on long leases.  Fitch estimates whole loan LTVs of 108%
and 104% for Hanover and Trabrennbahn respectively.  In light of
the high Fitch LTVs, the prospects of successful re-financings at
maturity could prove more difficult or complicated.

Fitch will continue to monitor the performance of the transaction.


DEUTSCHE LUFTHANSA: Moody's Downgrades Issuer Ratings to 'Ba1'
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has lowered the long-term and short-term
issuer ratings of Deutsche Lufthansa AG to Ba1/Not-prime from
Baa3/Prime-3.  At the same time Moody's has withdrawn the long-
term issuer rating and assigned a Corporate Family Rating and
Probability of Default Rating at Ba1.  The outlook is stable.

The rating action reflects predominantly Moody's view that the
very weak market conditions, with pressure on yields and volumes
being reflected in the decline in operating profits in both the
passenger and cargo divisions, will weaken credit metrics well
beyond the parameters that Moody's had set for the previous rating
category, notably for debt/EBITDA to remain below 3.5x and for
RCF/Net Debt to remain above 25%.  Credit metrics will also be
affected to some degree by the company's recent acquisitions.
Although Moody's recognize the likelihood of stronger metrics in
FY2010 if industry conditions improve, Moody's do not believe that
this will be sufficient in the near-term to improve metrics to
levels commensurate with an investment grade rating.

Moody's note, nevertheless, the company's continued objective to
achieve an operating profit this year, albeit this will be
substantially below FY2008.  In addition, while the acquisition of
Austrian Airlines will weigh negatively on the company's metrics
in the near-term, Moody's expect that over time Lufthansa will
improve performance at that airline, and note the company's track
record in returning Swiss (acquired in 2005) to profitability as
well.

Lufthansa's strong liquidity profile continues to be a supporting
factor of its rating, with cash and securities reported at
EUR4.7 billion as of June 2009, and supplemented by an
EUR750 million bond issue subsequently.  Moody's believes,
however, that this level may decrease going forward due to a
combination of acquisitions and debt repayments.  The company
further reports EUR1.5 billion in committed short-term bilateral
credit facilities.

The senior unsecured rating, and the rating of the senior
unsecured notes of Ba1 (LGD4, 52%), at the same level as the CFR,
reflects the limited amount of structural subordination of the
notes within the company's capital structure.

The stable outlook reflects Moody's view that although metrics at
the end of 2009 are likely to be weak for the current rating,
industry conditions will enable Lufthansa to gradually rebuild its
metrics in the course of 2010.  For the stable outlook, Moody's
would expect gross leverage to trend towards 5x and for RCF/Net
Debt to be in the mid-to high teens, although Moody's do not
expect these metrics to be achieved in the current fiscal year.
Downward pressure on the rating or outlook could occur if gross
leverage were to remain above 6x on a continued basis, of if there
were a substantial deterioration in liquidity.

Lufthansa, headquartered in Cologne, Germany, is a leading
European airline.  In FY 2008, the company reported
EUR24.9 billion and EUR2.4 billion in revenues and EBITDA,
respectively.


GENERAL MOTORS: Germany Wants Decision on Opel Sale This Week
-------------------------------------------------------------
Bertrand Benoit and John Reed at The Financial Times report that
Germany on Friday urged General Motors to make a final decision
this week on the sale of its European operation.

Citing two people familiar with the U.S. carmaker's plans, the FT
discloses GM's board is expected to reach a decision about the
future of Opel/Vauxhall at a meeting tomorrow and Wednesday.

"We, as a government, have done our homework . . . we expect a
decision of the board of directors [this] week," the FT quoted
Karl-Theodor zu Guttenberg, economics minister, as saying on the
ARD public sector network Friday.  "We are pushing for an outside
investor scenario with long-term prospects."

Citing two people familiar with the situation, Andreas Cremer and
Chris Reiter at Bloomberg News report that if GM picks Canadian
car-parts supplier Magna International Inc., the Opel trust may
quickly approve a transaction, while a decision in favor of
investment firm RHJ International SA may spark a new round of
talks between GM and the German government on financing, delaying
the trust's decision.

Germany, which provided an emergency EUR1.5-billion (US$2.1
billion) loan to keep Opel solvent, supports a bid from Magna and
refuses to back a proposal by investment firm RHJ International SA
that's favored by GM.

According to Bloomberg, one of the people said the trust wouldn't
need to give a ruling if GM elects to keep Opel or if the German
carmaker goes insolvent.

Noah Barkin at Reuters reports GM Europe head Carl-Peter Forster
told German daily Die Welt that Magna was most likely to win a
bidding battle for Opel, but that the carmaker could also thrive
under the ownership of its U.S. parent.

Rainer Buergin at Bloomberg News reports that German Finance
Minister Peer Steinbrueck said GM's decision on a possible sale of
its German Opel unit will be driven mainly by GM's business
interests.

Bloomberg relates after one-on-one talks with his U.S.
counterpart, Timothy Geithner, Mr. Steinbrueck said "It's my
impression that the U.S. government has put the decision quite
clearly in the hands of the GM board and that it's not exerting
massive influence" on the decision-making process.

Separately, Bloomberg News reports Mr. Steinbrueck said the German
government wants GM to take a decision soon, still prefers Magna
as a potential buyer and has 'focused' its readiness to provide
aid on Magna.

                              Fiat

Angela Cullen at Bloomberg News, citing Frankfurter Allgemeine
Zeitung, reports Fiat SpA is no longer interested in GM's Opel
unit because the U.S. carmaker has decided against a sale.
Bloomberg notes the newspaper said GM product manager Bob Lutz
made clear to German government officials during a recent visit to
Berlin that GM now wants to keep Opel.

QUELLE BAUSPARKASSE: May Be Bought by Postbank, Handelsblatt Says
-----------------------------------------------------------------

Deutsche Postbank AG's BHW mortgage division or a special rescue
company financed by Germany's home-loan banks could by Quelle
Bausparkasse AG.

According to Bloomberg, Quelle Bausparkasse, whose biggest
shareholder is heiress Madeleine Schickedanz, is suffering from
refinancing problems.

Quelle Bausparkasse AG is a home loan bank.


S-CORE 2007-1: Moody's Junks Ratings on Three Classes of Notes
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has downgraded its ratings of six
classes of notes issued by S-core 2007-1 GMBH.

  -- EUR91M A2 Notes, Downgraded to A2; previously on Aug. 10,
     2007 Assigned Aaa

  -- EUR8.85M B Notes, Downgraded to Ba2; previously on March 13,
     2009 Aa1 Placed Under Review for Possible Downgrade

  -- EUR9.6M C Notes, Downgraded to B1; previously on March 13,
     2009 Aa3 Placed Under Review for Possible Downgrade

  -- EUR12.4M D Notes, Downgraded to Caa1; previously on March 13,
     2009 A3 Placed Under Review for Possible Downgrade

  -- EUR19.7M E Notes, Downgraded to Caa3; previously on March 13,
     2009 Ba2 Placed Under Review for Possible Downgrade

  -- EUR4.3M F Notes, Downgraded to Ca; previously on March 13,
     2009 B3 Placed Under Review for Possible Downgrade

This transaction is a static German SME CLO referencing a
portfolio of 'schuldschein' loans.  The transaction has
suffered EUR18 million in defaults, although the Principal
Deficiency Ledger has been reduced to approximately
EUR7.6 million.  The Class A notes have been paid down by
approximately EUR35.4 million, 25 million of which comes from
asset repayments and the remainder from excess spread.

The outstanding portfolio totals EUR462.35 million of portfolio
assets, representing exposure to 144 loans.

The internal ratings assigned to the borrowers by the originator
Deutsche Bank are used to determine the default probabilities of
the borrowers in this transaction.  These internal ratings are
converted to Moody's rating scale according to a mapping.  The
internal ratings provided by Deutsche Bank exhibit sufficient
deterioration to move the average rating into sub investment grade
territory.

The rating actions follow the watchlisting of all the notes except
the Class A1 and A2 tranches on March 13, 2009 and reflect the
credit deterioration of the underlying portfolio as well as the
application of revised and updated key modelling parameter
assumptions that Moody's uses to rate and monitor ratings of CDOs
exposed to corporate assets and which are also being applied in
its analysis of SME CDOs.  Moody's announced the changes to these
assumptions in two press releases titled "Moody's updates key
assumptions for rating CLOs", published on 4 February 2009 and
"Moody's Updates its Key Assumptions for Rating Corporate
Synthetic CDOs," published on January 15, 2009.  The revisions
affect default probability, which has been stressed to take into
account forward looking measures, as well as correlation, which is
reflected by a 5% minimum correlation and more conservative
industry correlation assumptions.  Default probability and
correlation are key parameters in Moody's model for rating CDOs
exposed to corporate assets.

Furthermore, various stress scenarios were run, including reducing
Moody's assumptions in regards to likely recoveries and stressing
by one notch those assets belonging to sectors which were viewed
as particularly vulnerable such as Automobile, Buildings and Real
Estate, Finance, Hotels, Motels, Inns and Gaming etc.

In addition to the quantitative factors that are explicitly
modeled, qualitative factors are part of the rating committee
considerations.  These qualitative factors include the structural
protections in each transaction, the recent deal performance in
the current market environment, the legal environment, specific
documentation features, the collateral manager's track record, and
the potential for selection bias in the portfolio.  All
information available to rating committees, including
macroeconomic forecasts, input from other Moody's analytical
groups, market factors, and judgments regarding the nature and
severity of credit stress on the transactions, may influence the
final rating decision.

ANGLO IRISH: Won't Pay Interest on GBP300 Mil. Subordinated Notes
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Anglo Irish Bank Corporation plc (now Anglo Irish Bank Corporation
Limited) has resolved not to elect to pay the interest on its
300,000,000 Callable Fixed to Floating Rate Undated Subordinated
Notes otherwise due on the Optional Interest Payment Date on 5th
October 2009.  Such unpaid interest shall constitute "Arrears of
Interest" for the purposes of condition 2(c)(1)(C) of the terms of
the Notes as set out in the appropriate Offering Circular.

Anglo Irish Bank Corp PLC -- http://www.angloirishbank.com/--
operates in three core areas: business lending, treasury and
private banking.  The Bank's non-retail business is made up of
more than 11,000 commercial depositors spanning commercial
entities, charities, public sector bodies, pension funds, credit
unions and other non-bank financial institutions.  The Company's
retail deposits comprise demand, notice and fixed term deposit
accounts from personal savers with maturities of up to two years.
Non-retail deposits are sourced from commercial entities,
charities, public sector bodies, pension funds, credit unions and
other non-bank financial institutions.  In addition, at September
30, 2008, its non-retail deposits included deposits from Irish
Life Assurance plc.  The Private Bank offers tailored products and
solutions for high net worth clients and operates the Bank's
lending business in Ireland and the United Kingdom.

                           *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Europe, Moody's
Investors Service downgraded the Tier 1 securities of Anglo Irish
Bank Corporation Ltd (Anglo Irish, rated A3/P-1/E) to C (with the
exception of the non-cumulative preference shares with voting
rights that are already rated C).  The outlook on these securities
is now stable.  Previously the bank's cumulative Tier 1 securities
were rated Caa1 and the bank's non-cumulative Tier 1 securities
were rated Caa3, all on review for possible downgrade.


ARGON CAPITAL: Moody's Junks Rating on Series 77 Notes
------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has downgraded its ratings of one class
of notes issued by Argon Capital PLC and one CDS entered into by
Merril Lynch.

Argon Capital PLC - Series 77 (Lagonda)

  -- EUR10.2M EUR10,200,000 Limited Recourse Secured Variable
     Rate Credit-Linked Notes due 2047, Downgraded to Caa3;
     previously on Jun 17, 2009 Downgraded to Ba3

Lagonda CDO

  -- EUR30M EUR30,000,000 Lagonda CDO CDS, Downgraded to Ba3;
     previously on Jun 17, 2009 Downgraded to Baa1

The transactions are two synthetic resecuritizations of European
CMBS.  The rating actions are a response to the negative rating
migration of some of the assets in the underlying portfolio.  In
particular four of the highly rated entities have been downgraded
by multiple notches since the last review by Moody's in June 2009.
This affects the rating of the notes which have no credit
enhancement and the rating of the CDS which has a credit
enhancement of 1.70%.

Moody's monitors this transaction using primarily the methodology
and its supplements for ABS CDOs as described in Moody's Special
Reports below:

  -- Moody's Approach to Rating SF CDO (March 2009)

In addition to the quantitative factors that are explicitly
modeled, qualitative factors are part of rating committee
considerations.  These qualitative factors include the structural
protections in each transaction, the recent deal performance in
the current market environment, the strength of the legal
framework as well as specific documentation features, and
selection bias in the portfolio.  All information available to
rating committees, including macroeconomic forecasts, input from
other Moody's analytical groups, market factors, and judgments
regarding the nature and severity of credit stress on the
transactions, may influence the final rating decision.


CLOVERIE PLC: Moody's Withdraws Ratings on Four Classes of Notes
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Servicehas withdrawn its ratings of four classes
of notes issued by Cloverie Plc.

* Cloverie Plc - Series 2005-33 (US Onyx) US$18,750,000 Class C
  Secured Floating Rate Portfolio Linked Notes due 2025,
  Withdrawn; previously on Apr 23, 2009 Downgraded to Ca

* Cloverie Plc - Series 2005-34 (US Onyx) US$18,750,000 Class C
  Secured Floating Rate Portfolio Linked Notes due 2025,
  Withdrawn; previously on Apr 23, 2009 Downgraded to Ca

* Cloverie Plc - Series 2005-35 (US Onyx) US$18,750,000 Class C

  Secured Floating Rate Portfolio Linked Notes due 2025,
  Withdrawn; previously on Apr 23, 2009 Downgraded to C

The rating action follows the repurchase in full of the notes on
the August 27, 2009.


IVORY CDO: Change in Deal Manager Won't Affect Fitch's Ratings
--------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings says that it has determined that Ivory CDO Limited's
ratings will not be affected by the change of the transaction's
collateral manager.

The transaction, which has been managed by Societe Generale Asset
Management Alternative Investments S.A., is now managed by Lyxor
Asset Management since 1 September 2009.

The change of collateral manager reflects the transfer of SGAM
AI's structured credit business and other fund management business
to Lyxor Asset Management.  Fitch expects the management platform
for Ivory CDO Limited to remain intact.

Ivory CDO Limited's ratings are:

  -- EUR140 million class A1 (ISIN XS0309311909): 'BBB+'; Stable
     Outlook

  -- EUR6 million class A2 (ISIN XS0309350477): 'BBB'; Stable
     Outlook

  -- EUR12 million class B (ISIN XS0309352093): 'BBB-'; Stable
     Outlook

  -- EUR12 million class C (ISIN XS0309353653): 'BB'; Stable
     Outlook

  -- EUR12 million class D (ISIN XS0309357050): 'B-'; Stable
     Outlook

  -- EUR2.5 million class E (ISIN XS0309358298): 'CCC'


SALISBURY INT'L: Moody's Withdraws 'C' Rating on 2005-13 Notes
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service announced it has withdrawn its ratings
of one class of notes issued by Salisbury International Ltd.

Salisbury International Investments Limited - Series 2005-13

* US$18.75M Series 2005- 13 - US$18,750,000 Class C Secured
  Floating Rate Portfolio Linked Notes due 2025, Withdrawn;
  previously on Apr 23, 2009 Downgraded to C

The rating action follows the repurchase and cancellation of all
the notes on the August 27, 2009.  Following Loss Event Credit
Events, the principal amount of notes was reduced to
US$5.4 million.


SHAMROCK CAPITAL: Moody's Lifts Rating on Class G Notes to 'B3'
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has upgraded its ratings on eight
classes of notes issued by Shamrock Capital Plc.

The transaction is a synthetic CDO referencing local currency
sovereign debt linked Notes (issued by Citigroup Funding Inc.),
managed by Sydbank A/S.  In addition to the credit risk of the
referenced sovereign debt issuers, all of which are emerging
market countries, Shamrock Capital Plc also transfers foreign
currency losses and gains to investors.

According to Moody's, the rating actions taken on the notes
reflect:

  -- The 10% average appreciation of foreign currencies at stake
     in the transaction against the US dollar since January 2009.
     Moody's assessed that it would take an average appreciation
     of 34% of the dollar against the relevant foreign currencies
     for the first-loss piece of the transaction to be fully
     eroded and the rated tranches to be hit;

  -- The short time to maturity of this transaction, which is
     expected to terminate in October 2009; and

  -- The improvement of the credit quality of the portfolio with a
     current weighted average rating factor of the portfolio of
     1671 (consistent with a Ba3 rating).

The rating actions also reflect Moody's revised assumptions
incorporated in CDOROMv2.5 and described in the press release
dated January 15, 2009, titled "Moody's updates key assumptions
for rating corporate synthetic CDOs" The revisions affect default
probability and correlation, which are key parameters in Moody's
model for rating CDOs.

Furthermore, the portfolio is exposed to five countries that bear
a credit estimate.  Moody's has tested the resilience of the notes
to a variation in these estimates.

In addition, FX rates were generated using a bootstrapping of the
historical FX rates for similarly diversified portfolios, based on
the full universe of potential investments:

  -- Moody's analysed FX returns not on the basis of each currency
     taken separately, but on portfolios comparable to that of the
     transaction, in order to account for the impact of a currency
     crisis in one country on currencies from other countries;

  -- From this analysis, Moody's inferred a joint loss
     distribution with losses linked to credit risk and losses
     linked to FX risk;

  -- An additional correlation factor between the default risk of
     a country and the risk of currency depreciation of
     neighbouring countries was taken into account.

Moody's monitors this transaction using primarily the methodology
and its supplements for Emerging Market CDOs as described in
Moody's Special Reports:

  -- Moody's Approach To Rating Corporate Collateralized Synthetic
     Obligations (April 2009)

  -- Moody's revises its methodology for Emerging Market CDOs
      (April 2007)

The action is:

Shamrock Capital Plc:

(1) US$40M Series 2006-01 Class B Floating Rate Notes due 2009-4,
    Upgraded to Aa1; previously on Jan 30, 2009 downgraded to Aa2

(2) US$20M Series 2006-01 Class C Floating Rate Notes due 2009-5,
    Upgraded to Aa2; previously on Jan 30, 2009 downgraded to A3

(3) EUR6M Series 2006-01 Class D1 Floating Rate Notes due 2009-6,
    Upgraded to A3; previously on Jan 30, 2009 downgraded to Baa2

(4) CZK276.15M Series 2006-01 Class D2 Floating Rate Notes due
    2009-7, Upgraded to A3; previously on Jan 30, 2009 downgraded
    to Baa2

(5) EUR18.5M Series 2006-01 Class E1 Floating Rate Notes due 2009-
    8, Upgraded to Baa2; previously on Jan 30, 2009 downgraded to
    Ba1

(6) CZK104.1M Series 2006-01 Class E2 Floating Rate Notes due
    2009-9, Upgraded to Baa2; previously on Jan 30, 2009
    downgraded to Ba1

(7) US$20M Series 2006-01 Class F Floating Rate Notes due 2009-10,
    Upgraded to Ba2; previously on Jan 30, 2009 downgraded to Ba3

(8) US$32M Series 2006-01 Class G Floating Rate Notes due 2009-11,
    Upgraded to B3; previously on Jan 30, 2009 downgraded to Caa1


THEBES CAPITAL: Moody's Downgrades Rating on 2007-2 Notes to 'C'
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has downgraded its rating of one series
of static CPDO notes.

Thebes Capital Plc Series 2007-2

  -- EUR4M Series 2007-2 "Artemis" DPI Notes, Downgraded to C;
     previously on Oct 31, 2008 Downgraded to Caa3 and Remained On
     Review for Possible Downgrade

Moody's explained that the rating action taken is the result of
the transaction being fully de-levered with the certainty that
investors will incur a substantial loss to principal, as the
Globoxx position underlying the deal was closed out at a loss and
the funds deposited in a cash account.


THEBES CAPITAL: Moody's Confirms Ratings on Two Series of Notes
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service announced it has confirmed its ratings
of two series of static CPDO notes.

Thebes Capital PLC Series 2006-1

  -- US$25M Thebes Capital Plc - Series 2006-1, Confirmed at Caa3;
     previously on Nov 20, 2008 downgraded to Caa3 and remained
     under review for possible downgrade

Thebes Capital PLC - Series 2007-1 (Artemis DPI)

  -- US$25M Series 2007-1 "Artemis" DPI Notes, Confirmed at Caa1;
     previously on Oct 31, 2008 downgraded to Caa1 and remained
     under review for possible downgrade

Moody's explained that the rating actions taken are the result of
these factors:

  -- The significant tightening of spreads over the past months --
     since March 2009, the Globoxx spread dropped from its peak of
     250 bps to the 100 bps range -- allowed the transactions to
     stabilize their Net Asset Value and drew further away the
     risk of heavy market value loss crystallization;

  -- The reduction in spread volatility in the market leaves the
     transactions less sensitive to the current environment.

INTESA SANPAOLO: May Withdraw EUR4 Bil. State Aid Plan
------------------------------------------------------
Patrick Jenkins and Vincent Boland at The Financial Times report
that Intesa Sanpaolo SpA may not push through with its plan to
request for EUR4 billion (US$5.7 billion) in state aid.

Corrado Passera, Intesa's chief executive, told the FT the bank
may get by without an investment of so-called "Tremonti bonds",
which Italian banks would issue to the government in return for
injections of state cash.

"The board will take a decision at the end of the month on the
basis of how the market has developed, on our results, and
achievability of our planned disposals," the FT quoted Mr. Passera
as saying.  "We might press ahead with our plan to issue EUR4
billion of them.  But it is also possible that we will say no or
decide to issue only a portion."

According to the FT, shareholders would rather the bank did not
issue the bonds, which carry a coupon of 8.5%, and remained
independent of potential government influence.

Mr. Passera, as cited by the FT, said "Many investors would be
happier if we didn't issue them given their cost".

MARIELLA BURANI: U.S. Fund Plans to Acquire EUR55 Mil. of Shares
----------------------------------------------------------------
Armorel Kenna at Bloomberg News, citing daily MF, reports that
U.S. investment fund Global Emerging Markets plans to acquire
EUR55 million (US$79 million) of shares in Mariella Burani Fashion
Group SpA when the Italian fashion company sells new stock.

According to Bloomberg, the company will probably be removed from
trading on the Italian exchange.

On Sept. 2, 2009, the Troubled Company Reporter-Europe, citing
Bloomberg News, reported Burani was halted in Milan trading after
the company's auditor Mazars LLP cited "significant elements of
uncertainty" about the business as a going concern following a
decline in sales.  The company posted a net loss of EUR142.1
million (US$203 million) in the first half of 2009, compared with
net income of EUR4 million a year earlier, while revenue fell 24%
to EUR246.1 million, Bloomberg said.  Citing Borsa Italiana, the
manager of Italy's stock exchange, Bloomberg disclosed Burani
shares, which have fallen 75% this year, were halted for an
"undetermined period".  According to Bloomberg, Burani said Mazars
couldn't express an opinion on the fashion company's accounts.

                       Debt Restructuring

Bloomberg recalled Burani requested a standstill agreement from
creditors in May to allow it to halt loan payments as it
restructures debt.  According to Bloomberg, on Aug. 30 the company
said that it reached an agreement with some banks to postpone debt
payments by 24 months.

ING GROEP: S&P Cuts Rating on Deferrable Sub. Instruments to 'B'
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it lowered its long-
term counterparty credit ratings on ING Groep N.V. and ING
Verzekeringen N.V.  to 'A' from 'A+' and its long- and short-term
counterparty credit ratings on ING Bank N.V. to 'A+/A-1' from
'AA-/A-1+'.  At the same time, the 'A-1' short-term counterparty
credit ratings on ING Groep and ING Verzekeringen were affirmed.
The outlooks on all these entities are stable.  Furthermore, the
ratings on ING Groep's and ING Verzekeringen's deferrable
subordinated instruments were lowered to 'B' from 'BBB'.

"The rating actions reflect S&P's view that the group is now
increasingly likely to post a loss in 2009 after a weaker-than-
expected first-half result," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst
Claire Curtin.

First-half performance was pressured due to impairments and write-
downs on securities and real estate, as well as the continuing
difficult operating environment.  S&P expects these pressures to
continue into 2010.

S&P consider that this performance is not sufficient to support a
'AA-' rating.  In S&P's view, a loss-making 2009 also makes it
more likely that the European Commission will require the group to
defer payment of the coupons on its deferrable subordinated
instruments.

The ratings on ING's core operating subsidiaries incorporate S&P's
view of the group's significant exposure to investment risk, and a
challenging operating environment.  The ratings also reflect S&P's
view of the group's strong competitive positions, diversification,
and proactive risk management.

The downgrade of the group's deferrable subordinated instruments
reflects S&P's view that the EC is significantly more likely to
require banks in receipt of state aid to defer payment to hybrid
debt holders when an institution reports losses.  Given S&P's
revised view that the group will likely be loss making in 2009,
S&P considers deferral risk significantly heightened.  S&P
considers that a determination from the EC is likely in the coming
month at the same time as the EC determines whether the transfer
of "Alt-A" securities to the Dutch state conformed to its rules on
state aid.

"The stable outlook reflects S&P's view that the group's capital
base is sufficient to absorb these near-term earning pressures,"
added Ms. Curtin.  Although S&P does not anticipate that further
extraordinary support will be required, S&P does expect that the
State of the Netherlands would provide further support to the
group in case of need.

The ratings are also predicated on S&P's expectation that ING will
maintain its capital strength, execute on derisking initiatives,
and manage down hybrid and debt leverage.  S&P sees little upside
potential for the ratings in the near term.  Although S&P does not
consider this a likely scenario, negative rating actions could
result if the restructuring requirements from the EC are
significantly more far-reaching than anticipated.

NORSKE SKOGINDUSTRIER: Moody's Affirms 'B2' Corp. Family Rating
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has changed the rating outlook on Norske
Skogindustrier ASA to negative from stable.  At the same time,
Moody's affirmed Norske Skog's B2 corporate family rating and the
B2 rating on the senior unsecured notes but downgraded the
probability of default rating to B3 from B2.

"The downgrade of the probability of default rating to B3 with a
negative outlook reflects the company's weakening debt repayment
capability due to an eroding operating cash flow generation over
recent quarters with uncertain prospects of material near-term
improvements, whilst the B2 corporate family rating was affirmed
based on Moody's view of above-average asset to debt coverage
ratio which reflects the company's potential to fund debt
maturities from alternative sources" said Christian Hendker, lead
analyst for Norske Skog.

"Norske Skog's operating performance has been under pressure due
to an unprecedented cyclical contraction in demand for newsprint
and magazine paper in most geographies, and is likely to remain
depressed as prices are exposed to pressure also for contracted
volumes as the result of persistent overcapacities in the
industry," said Mr. Hendker.

"While Moody's recognizes the proactive measures the company has
undertaken in terms of capacity adjustments, cost structure
alignments and investment reductions that have supported free cash
flow generation, these activities as well as the benefits of lower
input costs have not been sufficient to fully offset the impact
from these severe cyclical market conditions in addition to
persistent structural challenges," Mr. Hendker added.

Consequently, the downgrade of Norske Skog's PDR to B3 reflects
the evidence that, unless the current level of operating cash flow
is materially improved relative to the company's financial debt,
it is not appropriate or sustainable for a rating in the mid range
of the single-'B' category.  In absence of a turnaround in funds
from operations, retained cash flow to debt is likely to fall
below 5% over the coming quarters, a primary threshold for the B2
rating category.  As a result, given the weakening debt repayment
capability of Norske Skog's underlying operations, the company's
dependence on asset sales is rising to fund upcoming medium-term
debt maturities.

Moody's has left the B2 CFR unchanged, as this reflects the
agency's view on the company's above-average asset substance
relative to its debt load.  According to Moody's Loss-Given
Default Rating Methodology and based on a going concern assumption
of the company, the rating agency has assumed a family recovery
rate comfortably above 50%.  The higher-than-average recovery
assumption is supported by the company's alternative approach to
managing its debt maturity profile in recent years and the solid
track record of disposing of assets that were no longer viewed as
core to its strategy.

The company's current liquidity profile is characterized by
NOK4.8 billion of cash as of the end of June 2009, which has
recently been supported by the issuance of debt instruments of
around NOK1.0 billion.  The cash cushion is nominally sufficient
to cover debt maturities of around NOK4.0 billion over the next
two years provided the company continues to generate positive free
cash flows.  However, the current cash position benefits from full
drawing of around NOK3.9 billion under a revolving credit facility
that matures in 2012 and is protected by a set of financial
covenants.  Moody's notes that the company could be challenged
going forward to preserve a sufficient covenant headroom to
support its liquidity cushion.

The ratings would come under downward pressure over the coming
quarters if (i) free cash flow were to turn negative, (ii) RCF to
debt were to fall towards 3.5%, or (iii) the company's liquidity
cushion were to weaken, i.e.  an inability by management to
address the intermediate-term refinancing challenges resulting
from the failure to generate sufficient cash flows and/or the
inability to raise adequate funds from any asset disposals.

Conversely, the rating outlook could be changed back to stable
based on sustainable evidence (i) of a performance stabilisation,
evidenced by a turnaround in FFO supporting RCF to debt clearly
above 5.0%, continued positive free cash flows and an EBITDA
margin of above 7%, and (ii) Norske Skog preserving a solid
financial flexibility, including an extended debt maturity profile
and the ability to fund debt repayments with cash flows from the
underlying operations as well as preservation of a sufficient
covenant headroom.

The last rating action was on 13 February 2009, when Moody's
downgraded Norske Skog to B2 with a stable outlook from B1 with a
negative outlook.

Norske Skog, headquartered in Lysaker in Norway, is among the
world's leading newsprint producers with sales activities in
Europe, the Americas and Asia, as well as Australia and New
Zealand.  The company also produces magazine paper in Europe.  For
the last twelve months ending June 2009, Norske Skog recorded
sales of around NOK24 billion.

Daryna Krasnolutska at Bloomberg News reports that NAK Naftogaz
Ukrainy's net loss widened to UAH2 billion (US$240 million) in

CHAMPION ENTERPRISES: Lenders Extend Waiver Through Oct. 12
-----------------------------------------------------------
Champion Home Builders Co., a wholly owned subsidiary of Champion
Enterprises, Inc., the Company and certain additional subsidiaries
of the Company on September 2, 2009, entered into a Seventh
Amendment and Waiver to Amended and Restated Credit Agreement with
certain financial institutions and other parties thereto as
lenders and Credit Suisse, Cayman Islands Branch, as
Administrative Agent, which modifies the Amended and Restated
Credit Agreement, dated as of April 7, 2006, as amended, among
Champion Homes, the Company, the Lenders and Credit Suisse, as
Administrative Agent.

On August 12, 2009, the Company entered a Sixth Amendment to the
Amended and Restated Credit Agreement that provided, among other
things, for an initial 30-day waiver of certain covenants through
September 11, 2009.

On September 2, 2009, the Company entered the Seventh Amendment
that provides, among other things, for an additional 30-day
extension of the waiver of certain covenants through October 12,
2009.  During the period of the Seventh Amendment, the Credit
Agreement debt continues to be subject to the additional 2% per
annum of interest, payable in kind, which was instituted with the
Sixth Amendment.

Other than the Credit Agreement, as amended, there are no material
relationships between Credit Suisse or the Lenders and the Company
or any of their respective affiliates, other than as follows:

     (i) the Company and its affiliates may have customary banking
         relationships with one or more of the Lenders and

    (ii) affiliates of Credit Suisse have in the past provided
         investment banking and investment banking-related
         services to the Company and certain of its subsidiaries,
         and these entities may continue to do so in the future.

Willkie Farr & Gallagher LLP serves as special New York
restructuring counsel to the Administrative Agent.

                    About Champion Enterprises

Troy, Michigan-based Champion Enterprises, Inc. --
http://www.championhomes.com/-- operates 27 manufacturing
facilities in North America and the United Kingdom distributing
its products through independent retailers, builders and
developers.  The Champion family of builders produces manufactured
and modular homes, as well as modular buildings for government and
commercial applications.

As of July 4, 2009, the Company had US$596.4 million in total
assets; and total current liabilities of US$269.6 million, long-
term debt of US$193.5 million, deferred tax liabilities of US$38.1
million, and other long-term liabilities of US$31.4 million;
resulting in shareholders' equity of US$63.6 million.

In August 2009, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its
ratings, including its corporate credit ratings, on Champion
Enterprises and Champion Home Builders.  S&P lowered the corporate
credit ratings to 'CC' from 'CCC-'.  The outlook is negative.
"The rating action reflects the increased likelihood of a debt
restructuring, which S&P would view as distressed and tantamount
to default," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst George Skoufis.

At the end of the second quarter, the company was not in
compliance with the amended financial covenants contained in its
bank credit facility.  In addition to seeking an amendment to the
credit facility, Champion is exploring other alternatives, which
could include a debt restructuring.


CREW GOLD: May File for Bankruptcy After Bondholders Reject Plan
----------------------------------------------------------------
Josiane Kremer at Bloomberg News reports that Crew Gold Corp.
Chairman Jens Ulltveit-Moe told Dagens Naeringsliv that the
company may have to file for bankruptcy after bondholders rejected
a restructuring plan.

Bloomberg relates Mr. Ulltveit-Moe told DN the company can't meet
its debt payments.  Citing the Oslo-based newspaper, Bloomberg
discloses the company has bond debt worth NOK1.9 billion (US$313
million), most of which mature this and next year.

Headquartered in the United Kingdom, Crew Gold Corporation --
http://www.crewgold.com/-- is an international mining company,
focused on restructuring its gold resource projects. The Company’s
project consists of LEFA Gold Mine, Maco Mine and Nalunaq Gold
Mine and Nugget Pond Processing Facility.  The Nalunaq Gold Mine,
is located in a remote part of southern Greenland. Mining
operations were conducted using contract mining.  In addition, the
Company also undertook two exploration projects, which include Wa,
Ghana and Glover Island, Newfoundland.


LUDGATE FUNDING: S&P Downgrades Rating on Class E Notes to 'D'
--------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered to 'D' its credit
rating on the class E notes series 2006-FF1 issued by Ludgate
Funding PLC.  All other notes in this transaction are unaffected.

S&P rate the class E notes to timely payment of interest and their
downgrade is due to the GBP23,679 missed interest payment on the
September interest payment date.  S&P kept its rating on the class
S notes at 'CCC-' because, unlike the class E notes, S&P rates
them to payment of ultimate interest and principal.

The missed interest payment was not unexpected.  On Aug. 18, S&P
noted that interest shortfalls on the class E notes were likely
over the next two quarters, in S&P's view.

The reserve fund in this transaction was fully depleted on the
December 2008 IPD.  Consequently, over the past four quarters the
issuer has had to use the liquidity facility to pay interest on
the notes, under certain conditions.  For the class E notes, one
of the conditions for using the liquidity facility is that the
principal deficiency ledger balance is less than 50% of the
outstanding note balance.  The uncleared PDL for the class E notes
is currently GBP1.71 million (76% of the class E note balance) and
therefore the liquidity facility is currently unavailable to cover
interest payments on these notes.

The class A2a and A2b notes are currently on CreditWatch negative.
S&P will resolve these placements when S&P has received updated
loan-level data and performed an updated credit and cash flow
analysis.

Ludgate Funding series 2006-FF1 is a U.K. nonconforming
residential mortgage-backed securities transaction.  It is backed
by a pool of first-ranking mortgages secured over freehold and
leasehold, owner-occupied, and buy-to-let properties in the U.K.
originated by Wave Lending (formerly Freedom Funding).


NATIONAL EXPRESS: Cosmen-Led Consortium Improves Takeover Offer
---------------------------------------------------------------
Robert Wright, Lina Saigol and Martin Arnold at The Financial
Times report that Spain's Cosmen family and CVC Capital Partners
increased its cash offer for National Express Group plc by 11%.

According to the FT, the higher cash offer of 500p a share values
the equity at GBP765 million.  The company rejected the Cosmen-led
consortium's 450p a share offer.

The FT relates National Express said in a statement on Thursday
that it was evaluating the latest proposal.  The offer is now
subject to due diligence and arranging the re-financing of
National Express's debt, the FT states.

                        Going Concern

On Aug. 4, 2009, the Troubled Company Reporter-Europe, citing
Telegraph.co.uk, said National Express made a pre-tax loss of
GBP48.1 million in the first six months of 2009, down from a
profit of GBP52.4 million last year, after taking a GBP54.7
million hit from its forced exit from the East Coast mainline
franchise, which is being taken back into government hands.
According Telegraph.co.uk, the accounts declared that while the
directors are confident of renegotiating covenant obligations with
lenders, "covenant compliance remains dependent on actions which
are yet to be delivered".  In light of this the accounts warned
that "underlying implementation risks represent a material
uncertainty that may cast significant doubt upon the group's
ability to continue as a going concern".

National Express Group PLC -- http://www.nationalexpressgroup.com/
-- is the holding company of the National Express Group of
companies.  Its subsidiary companies provide mass passenger
transport services in the United Kingdom and overseas.  The
Company's segments comprise: UK Bus; UK Coach; UK Trains; North
American Bus; European Coach and Bus, and Central functions.  Its
subsidiaries include Tayside Public Transport Co. Limited, Durham
School Services LP, Stock Transportation Limited, Dabliu
Consulting SLU, Tury Express SA, General Tecnica Industrial SLU
and Continental Auto SLU.  In June 2009, the Company announced the
completion of the sale of Travel London, its London bus business,
to NedRailways Limited, a subsidiary of NS Dutch Railways.


* Fitch Says UK Student Loans Unaffected by Interest Rate Reset
---------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings said that ratings on UK student loan Asset-Backed
Securities will not be affected by the latest interest rate reset.
Effective from this month, the rate at which interest is earned on
the loans has fallen into negative territory for the first time.
The interest rate on the loans is reset each September, being
equal to the annual rate of change in the Retail Price Index as at
the previous March.

During March 2009, the RPI reported its first annual reduction
since 1960, falling by 0.4%.  Consequently, the outstanding
principal balance of the student loan receivables will be reduced
by 0.4% between September 2009 and August 2010, and obligors will
accordingly benefit from slightly reduced monthly loan repayments.

"The reduced monthly loan repayments and the slightly accelerated
amortization of the notes, leading to increased credit
enhancement, will in fact be credit positive factors," said Grant
England, Director in the European consumer ABS team at Fitch
Ratings.  "However given the small scale of the negative RPI rate,
no significant changes are expected to the transactions'
performance."

The Honours and Thesis transactions, rated by Fitch are
collateralized by pools of UK student loans to individuals who
commenced higher education courses prior to September 1998.  The
loans were intended to provide funding to students at a real
interest rate close to zero.

Under the securitization structures, the rated notes accrue
interest based upon floating Libor indexed rates.  To compensate
for this mismatch, the UK Government provides an interest rate
subsidy payment to the Issuer to cover the difference between
Libor rates and the annual RPI linked interest rate applicable to
the underlying receivables.

As a result of the above subsidy, the Issuers will be compensated
for the reduction to the principal balance of receivables by
increased amounts received from the UK Government under the
existing interest rate subsidy mechanism.  Therefore, Fitch does
not anticipate the negative RPI rate to have any detrimental
impact upon the ratings of UK Student Loan ABS.


The rated notes and their current outstanding balances are listed
below:

The Higher Education Securitized Investments Series No.1 PLC
(Thesis)

  -- Class A2, GBP32.26 million rated 'AAA' stable outlook
  -- Class A3, GBP29.44 million rated 'BB' negative outlook
  -- Class A4, GBP7.94 million rated 'BB' negative outlook

Honours PLC

  -- Class A1, GBP162.47 million rated 'AAA' stable outlook
  -- Class A2, GBP54.2 million rated 'AAA' stable outlook
  -- Class B, GBP33.35 million rated 'A' stable outlook
  -- Class C, GBP18 million rated 'BBB' stable outlook
  -- Class D, GBP11.95 million rated 'BB' stable outlook

* S&P Takes Credit Rating Actions on 435 European CDO Tranches
--------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services took credit rating actions on
453 European synthetic collateralized debt obligation tranches.

Specifically, the ratings on:

* 312 tranches were lowered and removed from CreditWatch negative;
  And 141 tranches were lowered and remain on CreditWatch
  negative.

Of the 453 tranches lowered:

* 23 references U.S. residential mortgage-backed securities and
  U.S. CDOs that are exposed to U.S. RMBS, which have experienced
  negative rating actions; and

* 430 have experienced corporate downgrades in their portfolio.

The rating actions are part of S&P's regular monthly review of
synthetic CDOs.  These actions incorporate, among other things,
the effect of recent rating migration within reference portfolios
and recent credit events on several corporate entities.

This table provides a summary of the rating actions S&P has taken
on European synthetic CDO tranches since March 2009.

* Corporate names that have experienced a significant notch
   downgrade, as well as being highly referenced within European
   synthetic CDOs.

These rating actions and the CreditWatch updates follow two
reviews.  The first review was of the CreditWatch placements made
on Aug. 14, 2009.

For the second review, SROC (synthetic rated
overcollateralization) is run for scenarios that project the
current portfolio 90 days into the future, assuming no asset
rating migration.

For those transactions that have been on CreditWatch negative for
longer than 90 days, where S&P has either not received material
levels of information or relative portfolio credit quality has not
improved since the CreditWatch placement to a level sufficient to
affirm the rating, S&P has assessed portfolio credit quality and
not run scenarios 90 days into the future.

                          What Is SROC?

One of the main steps in S&P's rating analysis is the review of
the credit quality of the securitized assets.  SROC is one of the
tools S&P use for this purpose when rating and surveilling ratings
assigned to most synthetic CDO tranches.  SROC is a measure of the
degree by which the credit enhancement (or attachment point) of a
tranche exceeds the stressed loss rate assumed for a given rating
scenario.  It is comparable across different tranches of the same
rating.

Changes in SROC capture any developments in the major influences
on a tranche's creditworthiness: the credit quality of a reference
portfolio, improvement or deterioration of ratings in the
reference portfolio, credit events, and time decay.  When SROC is
100%, there is exactly sufficient credit enhancement to maintain
the rating on a tranche.

When SROC is less than 100%, it indicates that the current credit
enhancement may not be sufficient to maintain the current tranche
rating.  If the SROC is less than 100%, but the 90 day projection
indicates that the SROC would return to a level above 100% at that
time, S&P usually maintain the rating at its current level and it
remains on CreditWatch negative.  However, where there is a
difference of several notches in the rating level at which the
SROC is passing and the level at which SROC passes in 90 days,
rather than maintaining its current rating and keeping the
CreditWatch negative placement, S&P may decide to lower the rating
and keep it on CreditWatch negative.  If, on the other hand, the
projection indicates that the SROC would remain below 100%, S&P
may lower the rating subject to S&P's criteria.

If the current SROC of a tranche would be greater than 100% at a
higher rating level than the current rating, S&P may upgrade
subject to S&P's criteria.


* EUROPE: EC Mulls Mandatory Bankruptcy Insurance for Airlines
--------------------------------------------------------------
CTK reports the European Commission is considering an introduction
of a proposal for mandatory insurance against bankruptcy for
European air carriers.

According to CTK, unlike travel agencies, air carriers are not
obliged to be insured against bankruptcy and their clients must
demand a possible refund at a court if a company goes bankrupt.

CTK relates European Commissioner Meglena Kuneva told Czech
reporters Thursday she will start consultations about changes of
the existing rules concerning travel in October, but she admitted
it may last many months or even a year before the EC is able to
submit a specific legislative proposal.  Ms. Kuneva, as cited by
CTK, said the document would have to be approved by EU member
countries and the European Parliament.

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
