ACBA-CREDIT AGRICOLE: Moody's Cuts Cur. Deposit Rating to 'Ba2'
---------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service downgraded the long-term global local
currency deposit ratings of two Armenian banks -- ACBA-Credit
Agricole and Ardshininvestbank -- to Ba2 from Ba1.  None of the
other ratings assigned to these banks were affected by this
action.  The outlook on all ratings of both banks is now stable.

The rating actions conclude the reviews for possible downgrade
initiated on the affected ratings on May 27, 2009.  The reviews
were prompted by Moody's global reassessment of systemic support
available to banks and in particular a reassessment of the
Armenian government's ability to provide support to its banking
system.

Like most governments, the Armenian authorities are at least as
(if not more) likely to support their banking system as they are
to service their own debt, a view that has traditionally led to
bank ratings benefiting from significant uplift.  However, Moody's
believes it is more appropriate to use the government's debt
rating as a reference rating to measure its ability to provide
public support to banks, instead of the local currency deposit
ceiling, as previously.  Consequently, Armenia's systemic support
indicator is Ba1, one notch above the government's Ba2 local
currency bond rating.  As a result, and in light of Moody's
assessment of a moderate probability of systemic support for the
two banks (constrained by Armenia's highly dollarised economy),
their GLC deposit ratings now receive a one-notch uplift from
their respective Ba3 baseline credit assessments, the measure of
their intrinsic or standalone financial strength.

The bank financial strength ratings of ACBA-Credit Agricole and
Ardshininvestbank are unaffected as Moody's believes that their
adequate capitalisation enables them to absorb a level of stress
in line with current loss assumptions.

The detailed ratings and actions are listed below:

ACBA-Credit Agricole:

  -- Bank financial strength (BFSR): D- (stable outlook)

  -- Long- and short-term global local currency (GLC) deposit
     ratings: Ba2 (downgraded from Ba1)/Not Prime (stable outlook)

  -- Long- and short-term foreign currency deposit ratings:
     Ba3/Not Prime (stable outlook)

Ardshininvestbank:

  -- Bank financial strength (BFSR): D- (stable outlook)

  -- Long- and short-term global local currency (GLC) deposit
     ratings: Ba2 (downgraded from Ba1)/Not Prime (stable outlook)

  -- Long- and short-term foreign currency deposit ratings:
     Ba3/Not Prime (stable outlook)

Moody's previous rating action on both ACBA-Credit Agricole and
Ardshininvestbank was on May 27, 2009, when the rating agency
placed both banks' Ba1 long-term GLC deposit ratings on review for
possible downgrade.

Headquartered in Yerevan, ACBA-Credit Agricole and
Ardshininvestbank had total assets of AMD140 billion
(US$391 million) and AMD115 billion (US$320 million),
respectively, as at the end of June 2009.

DE ROUCK: Board to Convene on Oct. 29 to Prepare for EGM
-----------------------------------------------------------
John Martens at Bloomberg News reports that De Rouck Geomatics SA
said its board will convene on Oct. 29 to draw up a report for an
extraordinary meeting "where investors will be asked whether to
pursue activities."

According to Bloomberg, De Rouck Geomatics reported a nine-month
net loss of EUR1.6 million.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Europe on July 8,
2009, Bloomberg News said De Rouck Geomatics obtained creditor
protection for six months from the commercial court in Nivelles,
allowing the company to reorganize itself.

REMY COINTREAU: Sales Down 0.7% in Six Months Ended June 30
-----------------------------------------------------------
Ladka Bauerova at Bloomberg News reported that Remy Cointreau SA
posted a smaller sales decline after demand for cognac in the U.S.
and Asia improved.

According to Bloomberg, the company said sales in the six months
ended June 30 fell 0.7% to EUR362.7 million (US$543 million) from
EUR365.2 million a year earlier.  That was less than the 7.5%
decline reported for the first quarter, Bloomberg notes.

Headquartered in Cognac, France, Remy Cointreau --
http://www.remycointreau.com/-- offers a range of premium wine
and spirit brands, known and recognized throughout the world.
These brands include, among others, Remy Martin, Cointreau,
Passoa, Metaxa, Mount Gay Rum, Charles Heidsieck and Piper-
Heidsieck.

                          *     *     *

Remy Cointreau SA continues to carry a Ba2 corporate family rating
and senior unsecured rating from Moody's Investors Service with
negative outlook.

The company still carries 'BB-' long-term corporate credit and
debt ratings from Standard & Poor's Ratings Services with negative
outlook.


THOMSON SA: CDS Traders Set Debt Recovery Value at 63.25%
---------------------------------------------------------
Patricia Kuo at Bloomberg News, citing Markit Group Ltd. and
Creditex Group Inc., reports that credit-default swap traders set
a final recovery value of as low as 63.25% on Thomson SA's bonds
at an auction on Oct. 22.

Bloomberg recalls the credit insurance was triggered after Thomson
deferred payments on US$72.5 million of 6.05% privately placed
notes earlier this year.

Bloomberg relates auctions took place Oct. 22 setting final
recovery values for Thomson bonds in three maturity groups, or
buckets.  Bloomberg, citing administrators Markit and Creditex,
discloses notes with a maturity of 2 1/2 years were given a
recovery value of 96.25%, five-year bonds were valued at 65.125%
and 7 1/2-year debt was valued at 63.25%.

                           Restructuring

Thomson restructured more than EUR2 billion (US$3 billion) of debt
in July to avert bankruptcy, and it said in a statement Oct. 22
that it won more senior creditor backing since then.

"It's the first credit restructuring event in Europe" and "the
fact the company is still negotiating with creditors on the
restructuring adds a lot of uncertainty to the situation,"
Bloomberg quoted Teo Lasarte, a credit strategist at Bank of
America-Merrill Lynch in London, as saying.

                         About Thomson SA

France-based Thomson SA -- http://www.thomson.net/-- provides
technology, services, and systems to Media & Entertainment (M&E)

                           *     *     *

On Aug. 3, 2009, the Troubled Company Reporter-Europe reported
that Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that its ratings on
French technology group Thomson S.A. (SD/--/SD) are not
immediately affected by the company's announcement on July 24,
2009, that it signed an agreement with a majority of its senior
lenders to restructure its balance sheet.  The agreement,
involving primarily a debt-for-equity swap, is conditional on a
number of requirements.  Upon implementation of a restructuring
agreement or the filing, if any, of legal proceedings -- whichever
occurs first -- S&P will revise all of S&P's ratings on Thomson to
'D' (default), in accordance with S&P's criteria.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Europe on
May 21, 2009, Moody's Investors Service changed to Ca/LD from Ca
the Probability of Default Rating for Thomson S.A. on the
company's failure to repay US$92.5 million private placements due
on May 18, 2009 which the rating agency view constitutes a payment
default.


VIVENDI UNIVERSAL: Ex-CEO Bronfman Faces Trial for Insider Trading
------------------------------------------------------------------
Warner Music Group Corp. reports that APPAC, a minority
shareholder group of Vivendi Universal SA, initiated an inquiry in
the Paris Court of Appeal into various issues relating to Vivendi,
including Vivendi's financial disclosures, the appropriateness of
executive compensation, and trading in Vivendi stock by certain
individuals previously associated with Vivendi.

The inquiry encompassed certain trading by Edgar Bronfman Jr. --
the former Vice Chairman of Vivendi and currently the CEO of
Warner, and the former CEO, CFO and COO of Vivendi -- in Vivendi
stock.

According to The Globe and Mail, with Vivendi on the edge of
financial turmoil in 2002, Mr. Bronfman allegedly began selling
shares in the company using inside knowledge that the business was
in shambles, according to allegations made before the French
court.  In 2000, Vivendi acquired the Bronfman family's Seagram
business in exchange for $30 billion in Vivendi stock and a 7.5%
stake.  Globe and Mail's Grant Robertson says the gamble backfired
when the debt Vivendi took on from acquisitions -- a buyout binge
that included Hollywood film studio and record label Universal,
and the French pay-TV station Canal-Plus -- began to drag down the
company.  With the music industry under attack from online piracy
and songs sold individually online, observers believed the Vivendi
strategy was poorly timed, Mr. Robertson says.

Warner says several individuals, including Mr. Bronfman, had been
given the status of "mis en examen" in connection with the
inquiry.  Although there is no equivalent to "mis en examen" in
the U.S. system of jurisprudence, it is a preliminary stage of
proceedings that does not entail any filing of charges.

Globe and Mail relates the probe began after Vivendi shareholder
complaints in 2002, and has centered around allegations of
misleading balance sheets and financial forecasts issued by the
company in 2000 and 2001.  Globe and Mail says prosecutors believe
former Vivendi chief executive officer Jean-Marie Messier, who
left the company in 2002, and other executives misrepresented the
company's financial health to banks and shareholders.

Globe and Mail says Mr. Bronfman's lawyer, Thierry Marembert,
issued a statement from France denying his client did anything
wrong.  "We are just now reviewing the court filing, but as we've
said all along Mr. Bronfman's transactions have at all times been
proper and at no time did he contravene any French laws or
regulations," Mr. Marambert said.

In January 2009, the Paris public prosecutor formally recommended
that no charges be filed and that Mr. Bronfman not be referred for
trial.

According to Warner, on October 22, 2009, the investigating
magistrate rejected the prosecutor's recommendation and released
an order referring for trial Mr. Bronfman and six other
individuals, including the former CEO, CFO and COO of Vivendi.
While the inquiry encompassed various issues, Mr. Bronfman has
been referred for trial solely with respect to certain trading in
Vivendi stock.  The outcome of any subsequent proceedings with
respect to Mr. Bronfman is uncertain at this time.  Mr. Bronfman
believes that his trading in Vivendi stock was at all times
proper.

                     About Warner Music Group

Warner Music Group Corp. (NYSE: WMG) became the only stand-alone
music company to be publicly traded in the United States in May
2005.  Warner Music Group is home to a collection of the best-
known record labels in the music industry including Asylum,
Atlantic, Bad Boy, Cordless, East West, Elektra, Nonesuch,
Reprise, Rhino, Roadrunner, Rykodisc, Sire, Warner Bros. and Word.
Warner Music International, a leading company in national and
international repertoire, operates through numerous international
affiliates and licensees in more than 50 countries.  Warner Music
Group also includes Warner/Chappell Music, one of the world's
leading music publishers, with a catalog of more than one million
copyrights worldwide.

As of June 30, 2009, Warner had $3.98 billion in total assets and
$4.13 billion in total liabilities, resulting in $142 million
shareholders' deficit.  The company reported a cash balance of
$345 million as of June 30, 2009.  On May 28, 2009, the company
completed a $1.1 billion senior secured bond offering, the
proceeds from which, along with $335 million of existing cash,
were used to retire the company's senior secured credit facility,
which had a maturity date of February 28, 2011.  The June 30, 2009
cash balance reflects the impact of this refinancing, which has
increased the company's financial flexibility by, among other
things, pushing out the company's earliest debt maturities from
2011 to 2014 and eliminating financial maintenance tests from its
debt covenants.  As of June 30, 2009, the company reported total
long-term debt of $1.94 billion and net debt (total long-term debt
minus cash) of $1.59 billion.

ARCANDOR AG: Deutsche Post to Lose Jobs Over Quelle Closure
-----------------------------------------------------------
Associated Press reports that Bonn-based postal and logistics
company Deutsche Post AG said Thursday that its DHL express unit
is expected to lose 400 jobs in Germany after the closure of
mail-order business Quelle, part of Arcandor AG.

The report relates Post said it planned to close three German
logistics locations in Bochum, Nuremberg and Lehrte that worked as
the sole logistics provider for Quelle.

The closure of Quelle is expected to lead to the further loss of
around 7,000 Quelle jobs across Germany, the report notes.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Europe on Oct. 21,
2009, Bloomberg News said attempts to sell the operations failed.
Bloomberg disclosed the parties involved were unable to reach an
agreement on the financing of customer credit from Jan. 1.  "After
intensive discussions with several investors, the insolvency
administrators and creditor committee now see no alternative to
the liquidation of Quelle Deutschland," Bloomberg quoted Arcandor
insolvency administrator Klaus Hubert Goerg as saying in a
statement.

                         About Arcandor AG

Germany-based Arcandor AG (FRA:ARO) -- http://www.arcandor.com/--
formerly KarstadtQuelle AG, is a tourism and retail group.  Its

On Sept. 2, 2009, the Troubled Company Reporter-Europe, citing
Bloomberg News, reported that a local court in Essen formally
opened insolvency proceedings for the Arcandor on Sept. 1.
Bloomberg disclosed the proceedings started for the Arcandor
holding company and for 14 units, including the Karstadt
department-store chain and Primondo mail-order division.

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.

TALISMAN-6 FINANCE: Fitch Junks Ratings on Two Classes of Notes
---------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has downgraded five classes of Talisman-6 Finance
Plc's mortgage-backed notes, due 2013:

  -- EUR810.9 million class A (XS0294187306) downgraded to 'AA'
     from 'AAA'; Outlook Stable

  -- EUR10,000 class X (XS0294187645) affirmed at 'AAA'; Outlook
     Stable

  -- EUR79.9 million class B (XS0294187991) downgraded to 'A' from
     'AA'; Outlook Negative

  -- EUR83.3 million class C (XS0294188882) downgraded to 'BB'
     from 'A'; Outlook Negative

  -- EUR59.9 million class D (XS0294189005) downgraded to 'CCC'
     from 'BBB-'; assigned Recovery Rating (RR) 'RR4'

  -- EUR12.5 million class E (XS0294189427) downgraded to 'CCC'
     from 'BB'; assigned RR6

  -- EUR15.5 million class F (XS0294189690) affirmed at 'CC';
     assigned RR6

The downgrades reflect the impact on the nine remaining loans in
the portfolio of the downturn in the European commercial real
estate market.  The total loan portfolio had a reported weighted-
average loan-to-value ratio of 76.7% at the July 2009 interest
payment date.  This compares to a Fitch WA LTV of 106%, reflecting
an overall market value decline of 26.1%, since the underlying
collateral was last re-valued.  Fitch's criteria for European CMBS
surveillance were used to analyze the quality of the underlying
commercial loans.

The largest loan, Orange, accounted for 38.4% of the securitized
balance in July 2009.  It is the A-note of a larger facility which
is secured by 165 retail properties located across Germany with a
high level of concentration in North Rhine Westphalia and lower
Saxony.  The income profile is granular as the rent is derived
from leases to approximately 600 tenants, and the largest tenant
(EDEKA) accounts for just 6.2% of current rent.  The vacancy rate
was recently reported at 15.5%, up from 7% at closing.  The ICR
declined to 1.3x in July 2009 from 1.6x at closing, due to rental
arrears (EUR4.3 million in July 2009) and the increased vacancy
ratio.  The loan will mature in July 2011, and the weighted
average lease term is 4.9 years.  Fitch estimates a market value
decline of 29% since the last valuation of the assets, in June
2006, resulting in a securitized Fitch LTV of 105%, compared to
the reported 74%.

The Cherry loan (5.6% of the current portfolio) was transferred
into special servicing in May 2008 following a payment default and
previous ICR covenant breaches.  The special servicer is currently
negotiating with the borrower regarding a potential restructuring
of the loan and an exit strategy for the upcoming maturity in
2011.  A total of EUR2.3 million interest, EUR1 million principal
and a EUR0.4 million swap payment remain unpaid.

The Mango loan (8.2% of the current pool) is secured on 12
commercial assets, predominantly retail and mostly located in east
Germany, and is scheduled to mature in October 2013.  The largest
tenants, Interxion and Real, account for 22% and 15% of the
current rent.  The vacancy rate was 7.8% in July 2009, compared to
4.6% at closing, and the weighted average lease term is 4.3 years.
The reported ICR in Q209 was below the 1.50x covenant (at 1.496x),
and so surplus funds continue to be trapped in the rent account.
As of the July IPD, a total of EUR1.5 million had been trapped,
and the loan remains on the servicer's watchlist.  Fitch estimates
a market value decline of 31% since the last valuation of the
assets, resulting in a Fitch LTV of 112%, compared to the reported
77.5%.

Fitch will continue to monitor the performance of the transaction.

* ICELAND: Inks Deal with UK, Netherlands on Depositor Refund
-------------------------------------------------------------
Omar R. Valdimarsson at Bloomberg News reported that Iceland's
government on Oct. 19 said it reached a deal with the U.K. and the
Netherlands on guaranteeing foreign depositor claims.

Bloomberg disclosed Prime Minister Johanna Sigurdardottir on
Oct. 18 said the U.K. will lend Iceland GBP2.35 billion (US$3.84
billion) and the Netherlands will lend EUR1.2 billion (US$1.79
billion).

"The agreement doesn't stipulate that Iceland is legally obligated
to settle these claims and we retain the right to challenge the
claims," Bloomberg quoted the premier as saying.

Bloomberg recalled thousands of U.K. and Dutch depositors risked
losing their life savings after Landsbanki Islands hf, which
offered high- interest Icesave online accounts, collapsed with the
rest of Iceland's debt-laden banking system a year ago, dragging
the currency down with it.

CRYSTAL CREDIT: Transaction Updates Won't Affect S&P's Ratings
--------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that its credit ratings
are unaffected on all classes of principal-at-risk variable-rate
notes issued by Crystal Credit Ltd., after S&P received new
information on the transaction.  The actual claim activity for Q3
2009 is broadly in line with S&P's expectations.

S&P has received further information from Swiss Reinsurance Co.
Ltd. (A+/Stable/A-1), including confidential information regarding
its reserving levels and additional analysis of the potential
development of the portfolio under various scenarios.

Crystal Credit involves the securitization of payments related to
an indemnity-based excess-of-loss retrocession agreement between
Swiss Re and Crystal Credit, covering the risk to a defined
portfolio of credit reinsurance treaties for the underwriting
years 2006 to 2008.

Based on this new information, the views S&P reached at its last
review in August remain unchanged.  S&P still believes that losses
on the class C notes are very likely to be higher than the
attachment point, and that the repayment of principal will most
likely not be made in full by the notes' legal maturity.  The
default probability for the other two classes of notes has also
stayed the same.

For the class C notes to incur a loss, aggregate ceded losses must
reach EUR666 million.  Swiss Re's last investor report, based on
information as of Sept. 23, 2009, reported current aggregate
losses to Crystal Credit of EUR663 million for the underwriting
years 2006–2008 to be ceded to Crystal Credit.

The current aggregate gross amount of losses for each underwriting
year is:

  -- EUR209 million for 2006, EUR311 million for 2007, and
     EUR273 million for 2008.

According to the terms of the retrocession agreement, Swiss Re
retains at least 10% of the aggregate losses for each underwriting
year.  The ultimate percentage depends on the gross reinsurance
premium Swiss Re receives for each underwriting year.

The attachment point for the class B notes is EUR729 million of
aggregate ceded losses for the three underwriting years 2006–2008.
Swiss Re has witnessed a longer reporting lag in the current
circumstances as a result of an unusually high number of claims
and exceptionally high claims intensity, which it expects to
continue.  For this reason, Swiss Re's estimate of the loss ratio
for the underwriting year 2008 has significantly increased above
historical claims levels, making it much more likely that the
class B notes will incur a principal loss.

Given the nature of the credit reinsurance business, it will take
about two years for premiums and losses reported to Swiss Re to
reach a stable level.  S&P don't expect much variation in the
figures reported for the underwriting year 2006.  For the
underwriting year 2008, though, the uncertainty remains very high,
as some of the credit reinsurance treaties are still on risk--
meaning losses are still occurring--and Swiss Re's cedants now
report premium and loss numbers to it.

Although the treaties for the underwriting year 2007 are no longer
at risk, the delay in reporting means that there is still
uncertainty regarding the numbers reported to Swiss Re.  Further,
the 2007 losses are already higher than the 2006 losses, and S&P
anticipate that further losses will be reported and that the 2008
losses will be noticeably above the losses for either 2007 or
2006.

The close-out period for the 2008 underwriting year will end on
Dec. 31, 2009, when the loss development period will start.  This
period allows Swiss Re's cedants to report losses and premiums to
it for the reserve component of the retroceded losses to be
converted into paid losses, and for agreeing the ultimate loss
amount to be paid to Swiss Re.  This period enables ultimately
reported losses to develop mostly into paid losses as opposed to
reserves.

Based on the terms of the transaction, it will only be between
April 1 and April 15, 2012, that Swiss Re will be able to deliver
a proof of loss to Crystal Credit to request the payment of the
ultimate amount of losses under the retrocession agreement.

Swiss Re has appointed Towers Perrin Forster & Crosby Inc. (TPFC)
as the professionally recognized actuarial firm to act as the
reserve validation firm according to the terms of the retrocession
agreement.  If Swiss Re delivers a proof of loss containing
reported reserves greater than zero, TPFC will perform a review of
the reported reserves and a report will be due 15 days after the
delivery of proof of loss.  KPMG Cayman Islands is the appointed
claims reviewer.

Following the extension, the maturity of all classes of notes is
June 30, 2012.  Swiss Re has the option to redeem one or more
classes of notes before the extended maturity.

S&P will keep monitoring the quarterly premium and loss reports
and request further information from Swiss Re as S&P sees
necessary until the maturity of the notes.

FLEMING GROUP: Creditors to Recover Less If ACC Claim Succeeds
--------------------------------------------------------------
Simon Carswell at Irish Times reports that George Maloney of Baker
Tilly Ryan Glennon, the examiner of three companies in the Fleming
Group, has warned creditors that if a legal claim by ACCBank is
successful they will be paid significantly less under the rescue
plan.

The report relates Mr. Maloney said in a letter sent last week he
was disputing ACC's claim that it should be treated as an
unsecured creditor of John J Fleming Construction Company, John
Fleming's main building company, which is also in examinership.
The accountant argued that ACC, which is seeking to recover loans
of EUR21.5 million, is a "contingent creditor" of the construction
company, which would mean that the bank would not be repaid until
2020, the report says.

Under the survival plan, unsecured creditors would be paid 25% of
their outstanding debt on or before December 18, with a second
payment on or before February 28, 2010, the report discloses.

According to the report, the court will decide at the hearing
whether to approve the plan for the group, which has debts of
EUR1 billion, employs 650 people and comprises 31 companies.  The
court will be asked to sanction Mr. Maloney's survival plan, known
as a scheme of arrangement, on Nov. 3, the report notes.


ZOE GROUP: Court Awards Costs to ACC Over Appointment of Examiner
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Business and Leadership reports that the Supreme Court on Oct. 22
awarded costs to ACC Bank covering the final stages of its legal
battle with property developer Liam Carroll over the appointment
of an examiner to the companies in Mr. Carroll’s Zoe group.

According to the report, the costs involved in the Zoe group’s and
ACC Bank’s various court appearance are thought to run to
somewhere in the region of EUR1 million.

The report recalls the Dutch-owned bank had previously been
awarded costs for earlier stages of the Zoe group’s bid to secure
court protection from its creditors.  ACC is owed EUR136 million
by the group.

EUROMAX IV: S&P Junks Ratings on F1 Combo Notes From 'BBB-'
-----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered and removed from
CreditWatch negative its credit ratings on the class A2, B, C, D,
F1, and F2 notes issued by EUROMAX IV MBS S.A.  At the same time,
S&P affirmed the ratings on the class A1 single, A1 delayed-draw,
and A1 floating-rate notes.

These rating actions follow S&P's assessment of deterioration in
the credit quality of the underlying portfolio.  The portfolio
currently contains several assets rated 'CC', which S&P treat as
nonperforming in S&P's analysis.  In addition, S&P's analysis
shows that approximately 27% of the portfolio represents assets
currently on CreditWatch negative.

S&P also note that, according to information S&P has received from
the trustee, all overcollateralization ratios currently breach
their respective trigger levels (as set out in the transaction
documents).  These breaches have caused interest proceeds to be
diverted to the repayment of the senior notes to bring the tests
back in compliance, causing a deferral of interest payments on
classes C and D.

S&P's analysis indicates that the continuing deferral of the class
C and D interest payments is likely to significantly lower the
probability of full repayment of principal on the class F1 and F2
combination notes.   S&P has lowered the ratings on the
combination notes, and classes C and D, to speculative grade to
reflect S&P's belief of the increased likelihood of nonpayment.

The combination notes comprise components from the class C, D,
(for class F1 only) and subordinated notes.  As interest payments
from these component classes have been deferred, no interest or
principal payments were made to the combination notes on the
Oct. 6, 2009 payment date.

S&P has lowered the ratings assigned to the class A2 and B notes
to levels S&P views as consistent with current levels of credit
enhancement and portfolio credit quality.

S&P affirmed the rating on the class A1 notes because, in S&P's
view, the credit enhancement available to these notes is currently
commensurate with a 'AAA' rating.

There is an event of default defined in the transaction documents
that would be triggered if the overcollateralization ratio for
classes A1 and A2 were to fall below 100%.  As of Sept. 29, 2009,
the trustee reported a value of 109.23% for this test.  The ratio
value was reported as 120.1% on the effective date in October
2006.

S&P placed the ratings on the class A2, B, C, D, F1, and F2 on
CreditWatch Negative on June 10, 2009.

EUROMAX IV MBS is a CDO of ABS transaction backed primarily by
European retail and commercial mortgage backed assets.  The
underlying portfolio also contains a significant share of CDO
assets.  Geographically, the portfolio is concentrated in Germany,
U.K. and The Netherlands, which together account for over 75% of
the portfolio.  EUROMAX IV MBS closed on Oct. 11, 2005.

DSB BANK: Holding Company Declared Bankrupt
-------------------------------------------
Radio Netherlands reports that DSB Beheer BV, the holding company
of DSB Bank NV, has been officially declared bankrupt.

According to the report, alongside the 2,000 job losses from DSB
bank, some 400 people will lose their jobs from the 30 or so
companies owned by DSB Beheer.  The companies and their assets
will be sold to pay off some of the debts of DSB Bank, the report
says.

The report relates the Scheringa Museum in the village of
Spanbroek has also gone into receivership.  The art collection
itself has been taken possession by ABN Amro bank as security
against a EUR32-million for the construction of a lavish new
museum in the nearby village of Opmeer, the report notes.  The
collection assembled by Dick Scheringa and his wife Baukje has an
estimated value of EUR40 million, the report states.

DSB Bank -- http://www.dsbbank.com/-- is a fully licensed bank in
the Netherlands, providing mortgages, consumer loans, savings and
insurance products to retail clients.  The bank has a leading
market share in the Dutch market for consumer loans.  DSB Bank
also has operations in Belgium and Germany.  DSB Bank, established
in 1975, is privately owned by Dirk Scheringa, currently CEO of
DSB Bank, Chairman of the Executive Management Board.
Mr. Scheringa is also 100% owner of AZ Alkmaar football club,
which plays in the Dutch Premier League and president of the
Scheringa Museum for Magic Realism, an international collection of
more than 500 works of art.

FAB CBO: S&P Cuts Ratings on Two Classes of Notes to 'BB+'
----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered and removed from
CreditWatch negative its credit ratings on the class A-2aE, A-2bE,
A-2F, A-3E, and A-3F notes issued by FAB CBO 2003-1 B.V., a cash
flow collateralized debt obligation of asset-backed securities
transaction that closed in July 2003.  At the same time, S&P
removed from CreditWatch negative and affirmed the ratings on the
class A-1E and A-1F notes.

The rating actions on the class A-2aE, A-2bE, A-2F, A-3E, and A-3F
notes follow S&P's assessment of a credit deterioration of the
assets in the transaction's underlying portfolio.  The portfolio
comprises mainly mezzanine tranches of European prime residential
mortgage-backed securities and corporate CDOs.  In S&P's view, the
credit deterioration in the portfolio is partly due to a
significant increase in assets placed on CreditWatch negative,
which in turn is mainly a result of the introduction of S&P's
revised criteria for corporate cash flow CDOs.

According to S&P's analysis, assets on CreditWatch negative
account for about 37% of the portfolio.  In S&P's analysis, in
line with the application of S&P's revised assumptions for the
treatment of structured finance assets that have ratings on
CreditWatch negative and are currently held within CDOs, S&P
lowered its ratings on assets on CreditWatch negative by three
notches.  In S&P's view, these developments have lead to an
increase in scenario default rates for the class A-1E, A-1F, A-
2aE, A-2bE, A-2F, A-3E, and A-3F notes.  S&P's analysis also shows
that there are currently no assets in the portfolio rated 'CCC+'
and below.

At the same time, S&P's cash flow analysis indicates that break-
even default rates for the class A-2aE, A-2bE, and A-2F notes have
improved, while for the class A-3E and A-3F notes they have
deteriorated.  The improvement in BDRs is, in S&P's view,
partially due to the reduction of the weighted-average life of the
assets as the transaction has entered its amortization phase.
However, the improvement in the BDRs for the class A-2aE, A-2bE,
and A-2F notes is not sufficient to compensate for the increase in
SDRs.  As a result of these developments, the ratings on the class
A-2aE, A-2bE, A-2F, A-3E, and A-3F notes are, in S&P's opinion, no
longer commensurate with the available credit enhancement.  S&P
has therefore lowered its ratings on these notes.

S&P affirmed its ratings on the class A-1E and A-1F notes.
Although S&P's analysis shows an increase in SDRs, this increase
is accompanied by an improvement in BDRs for these notes.  As the
transaction is past its reinvestment period, principal payments
from the underlying assets are used to repay sequentially the
rated notes--starting with class A-1E and A-1F notes, followed by
the class A-2aE, A-2bE, and A-2F notes, and subsequently the class
A-3E and A-3F notes.  The repayment of the rated notes is
accelerated by the breach of the additional overcollateralization
test, which according to the transaction documents is primarily
used to determine if interest is paid on the unrated class C notes
or must instead repay the rated notes sequentially.

Moody's Investors Service took these rating actions on Benelux-
based banks:

  -- Review for possible downgrade for SNS Bank's and Friesland
     Bank's C BFSRs and A2 long-term ratings;

  -- Affirmation of Fortis Bank (Nederland)'s A1/C ratings with
     outlook changed to negative from positive previously;

  -- Affirmation of Rabobank Nederland's Aaa/B+ ratings with
     outlook changed to negative from stable;

  -- Affirmation of Banque et Caisse d'Epargne de l'Etat's Aaa/C+
     and NIBC's Baa2/C- ratings with outlooks unchanged;

Short-term ratings of the above mentioned banks were affirmed.

These rating actions are taken in the context of Moody's
recalibration exercise on Benelux assets, the completion of which
did not result in rating actions on other Benelux-based banks,
including some already placed under review for possible downgrade.
A full list of the rating actions taken can be found below.

The rating actions were prompted by Moody's expectation that some
Benelux-based banks will experience increasing deterioration in
asset quality over the coming quarters.  This will likely lead to
greater credit-related write-downs than previously anticipated in
the ratings, thereby exerting adverse pressure on banks'
profitability and capitalization.

The anticipated deterioration in banks' financial strength
reflects Moody's expectation that the banking systems of Belgium,
Luxembourg and the Netherlands will remain under pressure in the
short-to-medium term given the continuation of the worst economic
downturn in decades, as reflected in the negative outlooks that
the systems have carried since July 2009 (please refer to the
Banking System Outlooks on Belgium-Luxembourg and the Netherlands
published on 6 July 2009).

MoodysEconomy.com expects the Dutch economy to contract on an
annual basis this year for the first time in over 20 years, before
it starts to expand again next year, but GDP will likely remain
below the long-term average until 2012.  For Belgium and
Luxembourg, MoodysEconomy.com expects the real GDP of both
countries to decrease by approximately 3% in 2009 and to be
slightly positive in 2010.  Simultaneously, MoodysEconomy.com
forecasts the unemployment rate in Belgium to rise by 1.1% in 2009
to 8.1% at the end of the year and to 9.3% at the end of 2010,
while in Luxembourg it is expected to rise by 1% in 2009 to 5.9%
at the end of the year and to 7.0% at the end of 2010.

Moody's has already taken several individual rating actions since
the start of this year.  They reflected the rating agency's
concerns about the banks' exposures to structured credit assets,
exposures to CEE and the CIS, and deteriorating asset quality
indicators of their domestic operations.  For the latter
exposures, the estimates of expected losses used by Moody's at the
time have since then been fine-tuned, as described in the two
Special Comments (A list of rating actions taken earlier in the
financial crisis is available in the appendices to each report).
These rating actions also reflected its expectation of pressure on
the intrinsic financial strength of some Benelux financial
institutions in the deteriorating macro-economic environment.

As a consequence of the rating actions earlier in 2009, the
ratings of the majority of Benelux banks have not been affected by
the refinement of Moody's methodology.  However, the completion of
Moody's recalibration exercise on Benelux assets resulted in two
ratings being placed on review for possible downgrade where its
fine-tuned expectation of losses exceeded its earlier estimates.
Moody's expects the downgrades of the senior debt and deposit
ratings to be limited and believes that banks in highly rated
countries are likely to continue to receive support depending on
their level of systemic importance.

The banks with ratings placed on review for possible downgrade
have key credit drivers that are vulnerable to weaker performance
in their BFSR categories, under the rating agency's anticipated
(baseline) and worse-than-expected (stressed) scenarios.  Among
the key credit drivers, Moody's focuses in particular on current
capital adequacy levels in relation to banks' specific asset
composition and their respective anticipated loss levels.  The
rating agency's expected macroeconomic scenario, as described in
the two Special Comments, is used to establish its baseline
expectations for a bank's performance, while its worse-than-
expected case helps to measure a bank's potential vulnerability in
the event of a shift to a more adverse environment.

More specifically, the banks that are most likely to have their
BFSRs downgraded are those with lower capital adequacy levels in
relation to their exposures to the riskier asset classes, in
accordance with Moody's published assumptions in the two Special
Comments.  These asset classes include, for example, exposures to
commercial loans, real estate, construction and shipping.

                         Reviews of BFSRs

Moody's BFSR reviews will focus on the extent to which factors
such as more modest profitability, weaker asset quality and, in
particular, lower capital adequacy leave banks more exposed to the
ongoing economic downturn, particularly where this may also be
combined with exposure to riskier sectors, such as commercial real
estate (real estate developers, construction companies, etc.).

Moody's BFSR methodology remains unchanged, although the weight
attached to certain rating considerations, particularly capital
and future earnings prospects, has been increased to better
reflect the effects of the current crisis.  This refinement to
Moody's approach to rating banks in the current environment is
discussed in a Special Comment entitled "Calibrating Bank Ratings
in the Context of the Global Financial Crisis", which was
published in February 2009.

            Reviews of Senior Debt And Deposit Ratings

Moody's expects the downgrades of the senior debt and deposit
ratings to be limited to one, or at most two notches, and notes
that the probability of government support continues to underpin
deposit and senior debt ratings for the banks.  This is in line
with the rating agency's expectation that banks in highly rated
countries will receive, or are likely to receive, support
depending on their level of systemic importance.

In reviewing the deposit and senior debt ratings, Moody's will
consider:

     (i) the support currently available to the banks, as well as
         the probability of support once stability returns to the
         markets and the banking system;

    (ii) the systemic importance of the rated institutions;

   (iii) the banks' intrinsic financial strength; and

    (iv) other sources of external support, in particular group
         support for the co-operative credit banks and parental
         support.

      List of Rating Actions: Reviews For Possible Downgrade

Friesland Bank N.V.:

  -- BFSR of C on review for possible downgrade;

  -- A2 long-term deposit and senior unsecured ratings on review
     for possible downgrade;

  -- A3 subordinate ratings on review for possible downgrade;

  -- Baa1 preferred stock ratings on review for possible
     downgrade;

  -- P-1 short-term deposit rating affirmed.

The rating action is triggered by the outcome of Moody's stress-
tests on Friesland Bank's assets and by the volatility of the
banks' results stemming from its participations in financial
institutions.  Friesland Bank's loans portfolio mainly comprises
Dutch residential mortgages and commercial loans with some
exposure to the real estate industry.  Moody's therefore expects
an increase in the bank's cost of risk.  Moody's adds that
Friesland Bank's results may also be affected by its investments
in financial institutions.

The previous rating action on Friesland Bank N.V. was in April
2007, when Moody's Joint Default Analysis and BFSR methodologies
were implemented.

SNS Bank N.V.:

  -- BFSR of C on review for possible downgrade;

  -- A2 long-term deposit and issuer ratings on review for
     possible downgrade;

  -- A3 subordinate ratings on review for possible downgrade;

  -- Baa1/Baa3 junior subordinate ratings remain on review for
     possible downgrade;

  -- P-1 short-term deposit rating affirmed.

The rating action is triggered by the outcome of Moody's stress-
tests on SNS Bank's assets and in particular by the potential
losses stemming from its property finance activities.  While SNS
Bank's loan portfolio mainly comprises Dutch residential loans,
the bank has some exposure to property finance and notably to
international project finance.  Although the bank has publicly
stated that it would stop investing in new international project
finance in the future and reduce this portfolio in a controlled
and gradual manner over the coming years.  Moody's estimates that
significant losses may stem from the existing portfolio.

The previous rating action on SNS Bank N.V. was in September 2009,
when Moody's downgraded some perpetual subordinated notes issued
by SNS Bank N.V. to Baa3 from A3.

       List of Rating Actions: Affirmations And Changes Of
                        Outlook on Ratings

Fortis Bank (Nederland) N.V.:

  -- Outlook on C- BFSR changed to negative from positive;

  -- Outlook on A1 long-term deposit and senior unsecured ratings
     changed to negative from positive;

  -- Outlook on A2 subordinate and junior subordinate ratings
     changed to negative from positive;

  -- Review for possible downgrade maintained on B2 preferred
     stock rating;

  -- P-1 short-term deposit rating affirmed.

Fortis Capital Company Limited:

  -- Outlook on A3 preferred stock ratings changed to negative
     from positive.

The change of outlook is triggered by the longer than expected
completion of Fortis Bank (Nederland)'s merger with the Dutch
retail and commercial banking and international private banking
businesses of ABN AMRO Bank and by remaining uncertainties on the
timing of this merger.  Additionally, the outcome of Moody's
stress-test on Fortis Bank (Nederland)'s assets shows some
pressure on its capitalisation resulting from its substantial
exposure to commercial loans.

The previous rating action on Fortis Bank (Nederland) N.V. was in
December 2008, when Moody's changed the outlook to positive on the
bank's C- BFSR and A1 long-term debt and deposit ratings, while
affirming its Prime-1 short-term debt and deposit ratings.

The previous rating action on Fortis Capital Company Limited was
on 29th June 2009, when Moody's confirmed the A3 rating of its
Non-cumulative Non-voting Class A Series 1 Preference Shares while
assigning a positive outlook to the rating, thereby concluding the
review initiated on June 12, 009.

Rabobank Nederland:

  -- Outlook on B+ BFSR changed to negative from stable;

  -- Outlook on Aaa long-term deposit and senior unsecured ratings
     changed to negative from stable;

  -- Outlook on Aa1 subordinate ratings changed to negative from
     stable;

  -- Outlook on Aa2 junior subordinate and preferred stock ratings
     changed to negative from stable;

  -- P-1 short-term deposit rating affirmed.

The affirmation of Rabobank's B+ BFSR reflects the bank's strong
capital buffers, the outstanding stability and resilience of its
financial ratios and credit profile, and the strength of
Rabobank's cooperative model in a deteriorating economic
environment.  Rabobank's superior intrinsic financial strength and
Moody's continued expectation of a very high probability of
systemic support also led to the affirmation of the bank's Aaa
long-term ratings.  The negative outlooks on the Aaa/B+ ratings
indicate that Rabobank is not immune to its macro-economic
environment.  In particular Moody's expects some negative pressure
stemming from Rabobank's corporate loan portfolio and from some of
its subsidiaries or affiliates.

The previous rating action on Rabobank Nederland was an
affirmation of all ratings in April 2007, when Moody's Joint
Default Analysis and BFSR methodologies were implemented.

          List of Rating Actions: Affirmations of Ratings

Banque et Caisse d'Epargne de l'Etat:

  -- BFSR of C+ affirmed with stable outlook;

  -- Aaa long-term deposit and senior unsecured ratings affirmed
     with stable outlook;

  -- Aa1 subordinate and junior subordinate ratings affirmed with
     stable outlook;

  -- P-1 short-term deposit rating affirmed.

The affirmation of BCEE's C+ BFSR reflects the bank's strong
capital buffers when compared with its low risk profile and the
overall resilience of its business model in a deteriorating
economic environment.  The affirmation of BCEE's Aaa long term and
deposit ratings is supported by the bank's above average intrinsic
financial strength alongside Moody's continuous assessment of a
very high probability of systemic support from the Grand Duchy of
Luxembourg if needed.  The latter is underpinned by the full
ownership of the bank by the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg (rated Aaa)
as well as by BCEE's role and importance within the Luxembourg
economy.

The previous rating action on BCEE was in April 2007, when Moody's
Joint Default Analysis and BFSR methodologies were implemented.

NIBC Bank N.V.:

  -- BFSR of C- affirmed with negative outlook;

  -- Baa2 long-term deposit and senior unsecured ratings affirmed
     with negative outlook;

  -- Baa3 subordinate and junior subordinate ratings affirmed with
     negative outlook;

  -- Ba1 preferred stock ratings affirmed with negative outlook;

  -- P-2 short-term deposit rating affirmed.

The affirmation of NIBC Bank's ratings with negative outlooks is
based on Moody's stress-tests on NIBC Bank's assets and the bank's
high loss absorption capacity resulting from its high
capitalization levels.  However, the negative outlook is
maintained due to the bank's risky business profile combined with
its low earning capacity.

The previous rating action on NIBC Bank N.V. was in December 2008,
when Moody's changed the outlook on bank's BFSR to negative from
stable, while downgrading the long-term debt and deposit ratings
to Baa2 from Baa1.

The ratings of other Benelux-based banks are unaffected by the
completion of Moody's recalibration exercise.

(Please note that this press release does not deal with possible
implications for the covered bond ratings of Benelux banks.)

                      Moody's Methodologies

The ratings of bank subordinated capital securities are assigned
in line with Moody's existing methodology entitled "Guidelines for
Rating Bank Junior Securities", dated April 2007.  Moody's notes
that it released a Request for Comment on 16 June 2009 in which it
has requested market feedback on potential changes to its rating
methodology for bank subordinated capital.  If the revised
methodology is implemented as proposed, the rating on bank
subordinated capital securities may be negatively affected.
Please refer to Moody's Request for Comment, entitled "Moody's
Proposed Changes to Bank Subordinated Capital Ratings", for
further details regarding the implications of the proposed
methodology changes on Moody's ratings.

Friesland Bank NV, headquartered in Leeuwarden, had total assets
of EUR10 billion as of December 31, 2008.

SNS Bank N.V., headquartered in Utrecht, had total assets of

NIBC Bank N.V., headquartered in the Hague, had total assets of

SNS REAAL: Moody's Reviews 'Ba1' Preferred Stock Rating
-------------------------------------------------------
Moody's has placed SNS REAAL N.V.'s long term debt ratings (Baa1
for senior debt rating) as well as SNS REAAL's insurance
operations ratings (A2 insurance financial strength ratings for
REAAL Schadeverzekeringen N.V. and REAAL Levensverzekeringen N.V.)
under review for possible downgrade.  The rating action follows
the announcement by the rating agency that SNS Bank's long term
ratings have been placed under review for possible downgrade.
Moody's also affirmed the P-2 short-term rating of SNS REAAL N.V.
A list of all the ratings impacted by the rating action follows at
the end of this press release.

The rating action reflects Moody's anticipation of adverse
pressure on SNS Bank's profitability and capitalisation, as
reflected in the review for possible downgrade for the bank's
long-term debt ratings, and the potential contagion risk on the
holding and insurance company's ratings, mainly through additional
pressure on the Group's fixed charge coverage and financial
flexibility.

Moody's said that the review would focus on establishing the long
term profitability of the insurance company and of the Group as a
whole, in light of (i) the rating agency's assumptions on the
Dutch economic environment and its impacts on the demand for
banking and insurance products and (ii) Moody's new assumptions
for credit losses.  Moody's added that it will determine to what
extent the recent improvement in the underlying profitability of
the insurance operations is sustainable and if it can offset the
additional pressure at the bank level.

The agency said that it expects to conclude the review at the same
time as the conclusion of the review on SNS Bank's ratings.
According to Moody's, the ratings of the insurance companies could
be lowered if the rating agency believes that the Group's fixed
charge coverage ratio would remain weak for a prolonged period of
time, and if the Group's financial flexibility would be weaker
going forward.  The rating agency also mentioned that a downgrade
of both the banking long term ratings and the insurance ratings
would likely result in a downgrade of the holding company ratings.

These ratings were placed under review for possible downgrade:

* REAAL Levensverzekeringen N.V. -- insurance financial strength
  rating at A2;

* REAAL Schadeverzekeringen N.V. -- insurance financial strength
  rating at A2;

* SNS REAAL N.V. -- senior unsecured debt rating at Baa1;

* SNS REAAL N.V. -- subordinated debt rating at Baa2;

* SNS REAAL N.V. -- preferred stock rating at Ba1.

This rating was affirmed:

* SNS REAAL N.V. -- short-term rating at Prime-2.

The last rating action on SNS REAAL N.V. was on September 8, 2009.
The last rating action on REAAL Levensverzekeringen N.V. and REAAL
Schadeverzekeringen N.V was on November 14, 2008, when the ratings
were assigned a negative outlook.

SNS REAAL is a bancassurance group headquartered in Utrecht, the
Netherlands.  Focusing on the Dutch market, it reported total
income of EUR5.2 billion in 2008 and had shareholders' equity of
EUR4.9 billion as of December 31, 2008.

MG ROVER: Investors to Face Probe Over Role in Collapse
-------------------------------------------------------
Thomas Penny at Bloomberg News reports that Peter Beale, John
Edwards, Nick Stephenson and John Towers are to be quizzed by
lawmakers over their role in the collapse of MG Rover Group Ltd.

The four have been asked to appear before Parliament's Business,
Innovation and Skills Committee to explain their actions and
answer issues raised by a report into the company's demise,
Bloomberg says, citing a statement posted on the committee's Web
site.  Bloomberg relates the executives were criticized in a
government-commissioned report published Sept. 11 that said they
took GBP42 million (US$70 million) in pay and benefits out of the
company over five years.

                         About MG Rover

Headquartered in Birmingham, United Kingdom, MG Rover Group
Limited -- http://www1.mg-rover.com/-- produced automobiles under
the Rover and MG brands, together with engine maker Powertrain
Ltd.  Previously owned by Phoenix Venture Holdings, the company
faced huge losses in recent years, reaching GBP64.1 million in
2004, which were blamed on reduced sales.

MG Rover collapsed on April 8, 2005, after a tie-up with China's
largest carmaker, Shanghai Automotive Industry Corp., failed to
materialize.  Ian Powell, Tony Lomas and Rob Hunt, partners in
PricewaterhouseCoopers, were appointed as joint administrators.
The crisis left 6,000 people jobless, and caused a domino effect
on related businesses, particularly in the West Midlands.  Days
later, eight European subsidiaries -- MG Rover Deutschland GmbH;
MG Rover Nederland B.V.; MG. Rover Belux S.A./N.V.; MG Rover
Espana S.A.; MG Rover Italia S.p.A.; MG Rover Portugal-
Veiculos e Pecas LDA; Rover France S.A.S., and Rover Ireland
Limited -- were placed into administration.


NATIONAL EXPRESS: Lenders Agree to Reschedule Debt Repayments
-------------------------------------------------------------
Beth Mellor at Bloomberg News reports that National Express Group
Plc said it:

     -- will sell shares in the next two months; and

     -- has won agreement from lenders to reschedule debt
        repayments.

Bloomberg relates National Express Chief Operating Officer Ray
O'Toole said a share sale will take place before the end of the
year.  National Express Finance Director Jez Maiden, as cited by
Bloomberg, said no decision has been taken on the amount to be
raised in the offering, which Shore Capital Group analyst
Karl Burns estimates may amount to about GBP400 million.

According to Bloomberg, National Express said in a statement
subject to the fundraising taking place, lenders have agreed to
extend the maturity on as much as 50% of the company's
EUR540 million of debt due next September by six months.
Bloomberg says the interest rate on the company's borrowings will
increase again in January.

National Express, Bloomberg discloses, said third-quarter sales
fell 1%and that full-year pretax profit is likely to miss its
forecasts.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Europe on Oct. 21,
2009, Bloomberg News said National Express received a "highly
preliminary" proposal from Stagecoach Group Plc for a GBP1.7-
billion (US$2.8 billion) all-share transaction in which its
shareholders would hold no more than 40% of the enlarged U.K. bus
and rail company.

Bloomberg notes Mr. O'Toole said there are "no immediate plans" to
grant Stagecoach due diligence.

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.


NORTHERN ROCK: EU to Approve Restructuring Plan This Week
---------------------------------------------------------
Sharlene Goff and George Parker at The Financial Times report that
the European Commission is expected this week to approve a radical
restructuring of Northern Rock plc.

The FT recalls Northern Rock's proposal to split itself into two
-- in effect creating a "good" and a "bad" bank -- was submitted
to Brussels for state aid approval this year.

According to the FT, the Commission is expected to authorize the
plan next Wednesday when it holds its final formal session before
its five-year term expires at the end of the month.  The
restructuring of Northern Rock will ultimately lead to the bulk of
its retail deposits and low-risk mortgage loans being separated
into a good bank and sold off, the FT says.

                        About Northern Rock

Headquartered in Newcastle upon Tyne, England, Northern Rock plc
-- http://www.northernrock.co.uk/-- deals with mortgages, savings
accounts, loans and insurance.  The company also promotes secured
loans to its existing mortgage customers.  The company had more
than US$200 billion in assets at the end of June 2007.

                           *     *     *

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Europe on Sept. 24,
2009, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it lowered its
ratings on the GBP300 million 8.399% Reserve Capital Instruments
and GBP200 million 7.053% Tier One Notes issued by Northern Rock
PLC (A/Watch Neg/A-1) to 'C' from 'CC'.

* Ropes & Gray to Open London Office
------------------------------------
Ropes & Gray LLP disclosed that finance lawyers Maurice Allen and
Michael Goetz will join the firm and spearhead the launch of its
London office in January 2010.  Mr. Allen and Mr. Goetz will
enhance the firm's ability to serve its sophisticated private
equity, private investment fund, and finance-sector clients in the
United Kingdom and Europe.  Senior U.S. partners Newcomb Stillwell
and David Chapin will be helping their new colleagues launch and
grow the London office, demonstrating Ropes & Gray's commitment to
establishing a world-class service center in an important market.

"We are delighted that Maurice and Mike have decided to join Ropes
& Gray, but our clients are the real beneficiaries," said Brad
Malt, the chairman of Ropes & Gray.  "Our expansion into the
United Kingdom gives us coverage to execute on our clients' global
mandates, and Maurice and Mike have the experience, service
orientation, and business acumen to provide the cutting-edge
advice for which our private equity and debt practices are
renowned."

Ropes & Gray has globally recognized private equity and debt
practices, offering an ideal platform for the experienced London
practitioners.  The firm's Private Equity practice group is
consistently rated among the top PE practices and in 2009 garnered
the Chambers Award for Excellence in the category of "Investment
Funds."  The firm's clients include 11 of the 25 so-called "mega
fund" firms and more than 20 "mid-market" firms that routinely do
transactions in the $100 million to $1 billion range.  In the past
12 months, the firm represented private equity sponsors in a third
of major North American buyouts.

"Ropes & Gray is an elite firm with an extraordinary platform in
the global equity and debt marketplace," said Allen.  "Drawing on
our familiarity with the sophisticated London finance market, Mike
and I will bring our wealth of experience to bear on behalf of the
firm's clients.  This is a terrific fit for us and the firm."

"With their background in private equity and debt, as well as
their proven track record in the competitive London market,
Maurice and Mike are uniquely qualified to lead our expansion into
the United Kingdom," said David Chapin, a private equity and M&A
partner.  "To help our new partners launch and expand the London
office, Newcomb Stillwell, a former head of Ropes & Gray's Private
Equity Practice Group, and I will devote a significant amount of
time to our London office."

Mr. Allen and Mr. Goetz are well-suited to lead Ropes & Gray's
private equity and debt-focused London office, which will open in
January 2010.  The two lawyers were co-heads of the banking and
capital markets practice groups of White & Case, leading that
firm's London office as it grew from 65 to 400 fee earners.

The opening of a London office marks Ropes & Gray's fourth move
into key geographic markets in the past two years, following
openings in Tokyo, Hong Kong and Chicago.  With a new office in
London, Ropes & Gray will be in a better position to serve its
existing clients, as well as the clients of the firm's new
partners.

"This is a marvelous opportunity for Maurice and me," said Goetz.
"Ropes & Gray has demonstrated its commitment to growth in markets
like London that are a center of existing and prospective clients.
We, in turn, are committed to helping the firm continue its upward
trajectory."

Mr. Allen has practiced law for more than 25 years in the London
finance market, focusing on complex transactions and cross-border
financings.  He has advised extensively on matters such as

                            *********

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.
