CTK, the company employs some 1,500 people.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter-Europe on March 29,
2010, CTK, citing Odevni podnik's PR agent Karel Samec, said the
company's management said it has given up the right to draft a
restructuring plan after failing to secure money for operation.
CTK disclosed OP suggests that creditors propose their own
restructuring plan.  OP, which has been insolvent since January,
owes around CZK1.6 billion to its creditors, according to CTK.
CTK noted restructuring, which would prevent the company from
going bankrupt and enable production to continue, was approved by
creditors in early March.

Republic.

The report notes that roughly half of the insolvency proposals for
companies ends in bankruptcy declaration.  Reorganization is also
an option, the report says.  Since January 2008, reorganization
has been allowed to 26 companies, of this in six cases in 2008,
sixteen cases in 2009 and four cases in the first three months of
2010, the report states.

ESCADA AG: EUSA Files Chapter 11 Liquidation Plan
-------------------------------------------------
EUSA Liquidation, Inc., formerly known as Escada (USA) Inc., and
the Official Committee of Unsecured Creditors, as plan proponents,
submitted to the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District
of New York a Joint Chapter 11 Plan of Liquidation and
accompanying Disclosure Statement dated March 26, 2010.

The overall purpose of the Plan is to provide for the wind down
and efficient liquidation of the Debtor in a manner designed to
maximize the recovery to all creditor, Christian D. Marques,
executive vice president, chief financial officer and treasurer
of Escada (USA) Inc., relates.

The Plan contemplates the establishment of a liquidating trust,
to be executed through a Liquidating Trust Agreement by the
Debtor and the Creditors' Committee.  The Liquidating Trust will
be established for the sole purpose of liquidating and
distributing the Trust Assets, in accordance with Section
301.7701-4(d) of the Treasury Regulation under the Internal
Revenue Service, with no objective to continue or engage in the
conduct of a trade or business.

The Trust Assets consist of any and all of the Debtor's and its
estate's right, title and interest in all property, as provided
under Section 541 of the Bankruptcy Code, including cash, rights
of set-off and recoupment, any and all proceeds, rents, products,
offspring, profits arising from or generated by such property
before or after the Effective Date of the Plan, and any other
remaining property of the Debtor and its estate.

All parties will treat the Liquidating Trust as a liquidating
trust for federal income tax purposes with Holders of Class 3
Claims as Liquidating Trust beneficiaries, grantors and owners of
the Liquidating Trust, as set forth under the Liquidating Trust
Agreement.

The Liquidating Trust will terminate no later than the third
anniversary of the Plan Effective Date.  Multiple extensions of
the term of the Liquidating Trust can be obtained so long as
Court approval is requested at least six months prior to the
expiration of each extended Term and provided that the aggregate
of all extensions will not exceed three years.  A liquidating
trustee will further cause the Liquidating Trust to be terminated
within three months after making the Final Distribution.

               Appointment of Liquidating Trustee

The Court order confirming the Plan will provide for the
appointment of Clingman & Hanger Management Associates, LLC, as
Liquidating Trustee, which will be the exclusive trustee of the
Trust Assets with the powers, authority and responsibilities
specified under the Liquidating Trust Agreement.  From and after
the Plan Effective Date, the Liquidating Trustee will (i) act for
the Debtor in the same fiduciary capacity as applicable to a
board of directors and officers, and (ii) be the sole
representative of, and will act for, the Debtor.

Accordingly, from and after the Plan Effective Date, the
Liquidating Trustee will make all Distributions contemplated
under the Plan and will have the exclusive right to settle or
compromise any disputed claim or estate actions, as defined under
the Liquidating Trust Agreement.

          Treatment of Claims and Equity Interests

Pursuant to Sections 1122 and 1123 of the Bankruptcy Code, proofs
of claim or interest asserted in the Debtor's case are classified
into these categories for the purpose of receiving distributions
pursuant to the Plan:

  Class       Description            Status      Voting Rights
  ------      -----------            ------      -------------
Unclassified  Administrative        Unimpaired   Deemed to
              Expense Claims and                 accept Plan
              Priority Tax
              Claims

1            Priority Non-Tax      Unimpaired   Deemed to
              Claims                             accept Plan

2            Miscellaneous         Unimpaired   Deemed to
              Secured Claims                     accept Plan

3            Unsecured Claims       Impaired    Entitled
                                                 to vote

4            Interests              Impaired    Deemed to
                                                 reject Plan

Each holder of an Unclassified Claims and Class 1 Claims will
receive either (i) cash, (ii) other less favorable treatment as
may be agreed upon in writing by the claimholder and the Debtor,
prior to the Plan Effective Date, and (iii) other treatment so
that the Claims will not be Impaired.

Each holder of Class 2 Claims will receive either (i) cash, (ii)
the property securing that Miscellaneous Secured Claim, with any
deficiency to result in an Allowed Unsecured Claim, (iii) other
treatment as may be agreed upon by the claimholder and the Debtor
prior to the Effective Date, or (iv) other treatment that the
Claim will not be Impaired.

Each Holder of Class 3 Claims will receive a Pro Rata Share of
Available Cash pursuant to the Plan and Liquidating Trust
Agreement.  Subsequent Distributions will be made pursuant to the
Liquidating Trust Agreement.  Any Distributions to Beneficial
Holders of the Allowed Note Guarantee Claim will be made solely
to the Indenture Trustee for further distribution by the
Indenture Trustee to or for the benefit of the Beneficial Holders
of the Allowed Note Guarantee Claim pursuant to the terms of the
Indenture.

Interests will be deemed canceled, annulled, extinguished and
voided on the Plan Effective Date, and holders of Interests will
not be entitled to any Distributions under the Plan.

Estimated recoveries for Unclassified Claims and Claims under
Classes 1 and 2 are estimated at 100%.  Recovery for Class 3
Claims is unknown, while Class 4 Claims will have 0% recovery.

Each Holder of an Administrative Expense Claim -- other than a
Professional Fee Claim -- including any claim for substantial
contribution, is required to file a proof of Administrative
Expense Claim by (i) March 31, 2010, for Administrative Expense
Claims arising on or after the Petition Date through and
including January 14, 2010, and (ii) 30 days after the Plan
Effective Date for Administrative Expense Claims arising on or
after January 15, 2010.

             Establishment of Accounts and Reserves

On the Effective Date, the Debtor or the Liquidating Trustee will
establish the General Disbursement Account and Reserves, which
will be interest-bearing accounts administered by the Liquidating
Trustee.

On the Effective Date, all of the Debtor's assets will be
transferred to the General Disbursement Account, from which the
Liquidating Trustee will fund:

  (i) the Administrative Claims Reserve with Cash in an amount
      sufficient to pay the full amount of all disputed
      Administrative Expense Claims, all Disputed Priority Tax
      Claims, all Disputed Priority Non-Tax Claims and all
      estimated unpaid Professional Fee Claims;

(ii) the Priority Claims Reserve in an amount necessary to fund
      payment of all Priority Tax Claims and Priority Non-Tax
      Claims outstanding as of the Effective Date; and

(iii) the Expense Reserve with Cash, totaling $400,000, to pay
      post-Effective Date costs, including costs necessary to
      effectuate the liquidation of the remaining assets of
      the Debtor, administering the Liquidating Trust, and
      funding any necessary or appropriate litigation against
      third parties, in accordance with the Plan.

On and after the Effective Date, any Distributions that would
otherwise be made to the holders of Disputed Unsecured Claims
will be transferred to the Disputed Unsecured Claims Reserve.

The Liquidating Trustee will be entitled to (i) hold and
administer the Disputed Claims Reserve, (ii) object to, settle or
otherwise resolve Disputed Claims, (iii) make Distributions to
Holders of Disputed Claims that subsequently become Allowed
Claims in accordance with the Plan, and (iv) distribute any
remaining assets of the Disputed Claims Reserve, after resolving
all Disputed Claims, to the Liquidating Trust Beneficiaries in
accordance with the Liquidating Trust Agreement and the Plan.

The Administrative Claims Reserve and the Disputed Unsecured
Claims Reserve will be terminated by the Liquidating Trustee when
all Disputed Claims have either become Allowed Claims or
Disallowed, and Distributions required been made in accordance
with the Plan.

                Payment of Professional Fees

Each professional who holds claims for compensation and
reimbursement of expenses pursuant to Sections 327, 328, 330,
331, 503(b) or 1103 of the Bankruptcy Code in connection with an
application made to the Court must (i) file their final fee
applications by no later than 60 days after the Plan Effective
Date or as may be fixed by the Court.  If allowed, the
Professional Fees must be paid in cash.  All Professional fees
and expenses incurred after the Plan Effective Date are not
subject to Court approval and will be paid in accordance with the
Plan.

Quarterly fees owed to the Office of the U.S. Trustee will be
paid when due prior to the Effective Date of the Plan.  The
Liquidating Trustee will continue to file reports to show the
calculation of fees for the Debtor's estate until the Chapter 11
case is closed under Section 350 of the Bankruptcy Code.

                      Executory Contracts

As of the Plan Effective Date, all executory contracts that exist
between the Debtor and any person and that have not previously
been assumed and assigned or rejected by the Debtor will be
deemed rejected pursuant to Section 365 of the Bankruptcy Code.
Proofs of Claim for damages allegedly arising from the Rejection
must be filed with the Court and served on the Liquidating
Trustee no later than 30 days after the Plan Effective Date.

The Debtor's (i) amended and restated employment agreement with
Christian D. Marques effective as of January 15, 2010, and the
(ii) the amended and restated cost-sharing agreement with Escada
US Subco LLC, as purchaser, in relation to Mr. Marques will not
be deemed rejected and will continue to be binding on the Debtor,
the Liquidating Trust and the Purchaser.

                     Officers and Directors

All officers and directors of the Debtor serving immediately
prior to the Effective Date, other than Christian D. Marques,
will be deemed to have been terminated or removed as of the Plan
Effective Date.  From and after the Effective Date, the
Liquidating Trustee will be deemed the sole shareholder and will
be appointed as the sole director and officer of the Debtor,
other than Mr. Marques.  The Liquidating Trustee will serve in
its capacity through the earlier of the date the Debtor is
dissolved in accordance with the Plan or the date that the
Liquidating Trustee resigns, is terminated or otherwise unable to
serve.

                     Cancellation of Notes

On the Effective Date, any notes, bonds, indentures, guarantees
or other instruments or documents evidencing or creating any
indebtedness or obligations of the Debtor will be cancelled and
extinguished as to the Debtor only.  The obligations of the
Debtor under any agreements, documents, indentures or
certificates of designation governing the Note Guarantee Claim
and any other notes, bonds, indentures, guarantees or other
instruments or documents evidencing or creating any indebtedness
or obligations of the Debtor that are Impaired under this Plan
will be discharged.  Interests will be canceled without any
conversion or Distribution.

                    Liquidation Analysis

The Debtor believes that larger Distributions will be available
to claimholders under the Plan than under a liquidation pursuant
to Chapter 7 of the Bankruptcy Code.  Moreover, conversion of the
Debtor's Chapter 11 case to Chapter 7 would replace the
Liquidating Trustee with a Chapter 7 trustee.  As a consequence,
the liquidation and completion of the Debtor's case would be
substantially disrupted because a Chapter 7 trustee would be
unfamiliar with the Debtor's case.

In addition, claimholders would bear the cost of educating the
Chapter 7 trustee, resulting in delays and reduced Distributions.
Furthermore, all fees of, and expenses incurred by, the Chapter 7
trustee and its professionals would have priority over all
Administrative Expense Claims and Unsecured Claims previously
incurred in the Debtor's case under Section 726(b) of the
Bankruptcy Code.

The Debtor has yet to file its Liquidation Analysis.

                  Closing of Chapter 11 Case

When all Disputed Claims Filed against the Debtor have become
Allowed Claims or have been Disallowed by Final Order, and all
remaining assets of the Debtor have been liquidated and converted
into cash, other than those assets abandoned by the Debtor, and
the Cash has been distributed in accordance with the Plan, the
Liquidating Trustee will file a certificate of completion of
Distributions with, and seek authority from, the Court to close
the Debtor's bankruptcy case.

The Court has fixed April 29, 2010, as the time and date for the
determination of persons who are entitled to receive a copy of
the Disclosure Statement and all of the related materials and to
vote whether to accept the Plan.

The Plan Proponents did not disclose a schedule on the hearing to
approve the Disclosure Statement.  The Proponents, however, noted
that upon requisite acceptances with respect to the Plan, they
intend to ask Judge Mary F. Walrath to schedule a hearing to
confirm the Plan "as soon as possible."

ANGLO IRISH: Posts EUR12.7 Bil. Losses for 15-Mos. Ended Dec. 31
----------------------------------------------------------------
John Murray Brown and Nikki Tait at The Financial Times report
that Anglo Irish Bank recorded losses of EUR12.7 billion for the
15 months to December 31.

According to the FT, the bank, which was nationalized in January
2009 after a spate of governance scandals, took a EUR15 billion
charge for losses on loans to property developers that it does not
expect to recover.

The FT relates Brian Lenihan, the Irish finance minister, told
parliament on Tuesday that Anglo Irish may need an additional
EUR10 billion to absorb future losses.

The FT notes Anglo Irish said of its EUR15 billion provision,
EUR10 billion was for loans destined for the National Asset
Management Agency.  Anglo Irish is set to transfer EUR35.6 billion
to Nama -- about half its EUR72.1 billion loan book, the FT says.

The first EUR10 billion Anglo Irish loans were acquired by Nama
for EUR5 billion, representing a 50% discount to reflect the
collapse of Irish property values, the FT recalls.

                               Fees

Emmet Oliver at Irish Independent reports that Anglo Irish has
spent EUR25 million on advisers and lawyers as it investigates
past scandals and prepares to split itself into a so-called "good
and bad" bank.

According to Irish Independent, the fees paid to advisers form
part of the EUR42 million in "exceptional costs" incurred by the
bank in the 15 months to the end of 2009.   The Irish Independent
relates the bank said the EUR25 million in costs for advisers was
needed for "professional fees associated with the bank's
restructuring process".  The Irish Independent note the bank said
other part of this money was for "investigations and reviews into
legacy issues".

The Irish Independent discloses the bank, now under new management
led by Australian banker Mike Aynsley, has hired a battery of
advisers to help with its restructuring plan, among them Bain &
Co, KPMG and JP Morgan.  The New York consultancy SBCC has advised
the bank on risk management and loan valuations, Irish Independent
relates.  Also retained are auditors Deloitte and legal advisers
McCann FitzGerald and Freshfields, Irish Independent notes.

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.

QUINN INSURANCE: Administration to Threaten Jobs, Owner Says
------------------------------------------------------------
RTE News reports that Sean Quinn, the owner of Quinn Insurance,
said the appointment of administrators to the company is causing
major damage and threatening thousands of jobs.

Mr. Quinn told RTE News in an exclusive interview there was no
question of his company being involved in any impropriety.  He
described the Financial Regulator's decision as one of the biggest
errors ever in the history of corporate Ireland, RTE News notes.

According to RTE News, Mr. Quinn also rejected claims by the
Regulator and the Minister for Finance that his company had failed
to disclose information about its finances until a few days ago.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter-Europe on April 1,
2010, The Times said Irelands' Financial Regulator on March 30 put
Quinn Insurance into provisional administration.  The Times
disclosed joint administrators were appointed to Quinn
Insurance by the High Court in Dublin after the regulator
expressed concerns about the company's finances and how it was
being run.  The Times related the regulator said the business
would remain open for business and would continue to be run as a
going concern under different management.  The Times noted the
regulator did not disclose the matters being investigated but its
counsel told the court that, in recent months, the company had
"significantly breached" its solvency ratios.  According to The
Times, the counsel said the company had gone from a position of
having assets over liabilities of some EUR200 million to now
having an excess of liabilities of more than EUR200 million.

Quinn Insurance is owned by Sean Quinn, Ireland's richest man, and
his family.  The company has just over 20% of the motor and health
insurance market in Ireland.  It has more than one million
customers in the country.  Employing almost 2,800 people in
Britain and Ireland, it was founded in 1996 and entered the UK
market in 2004, according to The Times.


QUINN INSURANCE: Administration May Take Several Years
------------------------------------------------------
Geoff Percival at Irish Examiner.com reports that Quinn Insurance
is expected to remain in either full or partial administration for
several years to come.

The report relates Paul McCann and Michael McAteer of chartered
accountants Grant Thornton were appointed provisional
administrators to the general insurance division of the wider
Quinn Group on March 30 after a special sitting of the High Court.

                               Sale

According to the report, the two administrators have since
admitted that about 20 expressions of interest in the relevant
Quinn operations have been lodged with them -- by both Irish and
international insurance companies -- that could result in a total
or partial sale of the company.

The report says the future structure and ownership of Quinn
Insurance is unclear and dependent on the administrators'
findings, if and when they get full control of the business.  It
is possible the company could be wound up completely, run as an
independent entity or another scenario is that it could be sold to
a third party, the report states.

The next key date -- April 12 -- is the next full sitting of the
High Court, when the Financial Regulator will put across its
concerns in full and, presumably, Quinn Insurance representatives
will argue their defense, the report notes.  The report relates
the regulator, Matthew Elderfield, has already raised concerns
that the company's financial strength has been overstated to the
tune of around EUR450 million.

"The administration process is a long one and can take time, the
report quoted one industry source as saying Friday.  "There isn't
a great deal of precedent in the Irish insurance market, but it
should be noted that while much of its business was sold off and
whittled down over the course of seven or eight years, PMPA is
still technically partly in administration -- 27 years after its
collapse."

Quinn Insurance is owned by Sean Quinn, Ireland's richest man, and
his family.  The company has just over 20% of the motor and health
insurance market in Ireland.  It has more than one million
customers in the country.  Employing almost 2,800 people in
Britain and Ireland, it was founded in 1996 and entered the UK
market in 2004, according to The Times.

EVRAZ GROUP: USUS$1 Bil. Loan From VEB Extended by One Year
---------------------------------------------------------
Ilya Khrennikov at Bloomberg News reports that Evraz Group SA ,
Chief Executive Officer Giacomo Baizini said the company extended
a USUS$1 billion loan from state development bank VEB by one year,
to late 2011.

According to Bloomberg, Mr. Bazini said in a conference call late
Wednesday Evraz repaid an USUS$800 million loan from VEB in
December to free Canadian assets that were held as collateral.

                               Loss

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter-Europe on April 1,
2010, Bloomberg News said Evraz posted a net loss of USUS$1.26
billion in 2009 compared with a profit of USUS$1.86 billion in
2008, as production and prices declined on weaker economic growth.

Headquartered in Luxembourg, Evraz Group SA --
http://www.evraz.com/-- is a vertically integrated steel and
mining businesses with operations based in the Russian Federation,
the United States, Canada, Ukraine, Czech Republic, Italy and
South Africa.  Evraz's business is divided into three segments:
steel production segment, comprising the production and sale of
semi-finished and finished steel products, coke and coking
products, and refractory products; the mining segment, comprising
the production, enrichment and sale of iron ore and coal, and the
vanadium segment, comprising the production and sale of vanadium
products.  Other operations include management, logistics and
supporting activities.  During the year ended December 31, 2008,
Evraz produced 17.7 million tonnes of crude steel.  Evraz's assets
comprise of nine steel plants, five iron ore mining and processing
facilities and coal mining assets.  During 2008, Evraz acquired
Claymont Steel Holdings, Inc., General Scrap Inc and Palmrose
Limited.

                           *     *     *

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter-Europe on March 1,
2010, Fitch Ratings maintained the Long-term Issuer Default Rating
and senior unsecured ratings of Russia-based Evraz Group SA, which
are 'B+' respectively, on Rating Watch Negative.  The
international integrated steel producer's Short-term IDR is
affirmed at 'B'.  The Recovery Rating for the senior unsecured
debt is 'RR4'.  The maintenance of the RWN reflects continuing
uncertainty regarding the company's ability to secure the
necessary funding to refinance debt maturing in 2010 and 2011.
Debt maturities are estimated at USUS$1.9 billion both in 2010 and
2011 compared with USUS$746 million of cash and equivalents and
USUS$1.1 billion of undrawn committed revolving facilities as at
end-FY09.  Based on a conservative base case forecast, Fitch
expects Evraz to report negative free cash flow of USUS$200-250m
for
FY10.  Assuming maintenance of a minimum operational cash balance
of USUS$150-200 million, Fitch estimates a potential funding gap
of
up USUS$500 million in 2010 and a gap of up to USUS$2 billion in
2011.

LYONDELL CHEMICAL: Seeks US Court Nod for USUS$5BB Exit Financing
---------------------------------------------------------------
Lyondell Chemical Co. and its units' progress towards confirmation
of their Third Amended Joint Plan of Reorganization is well
advanced, Mark C. Ellenberg, Esq., at Cadwalader Wickersham & Taft
LLP, in New York -- mark.ellenberg@cwt.com -- tells the Court.

Every major intercreditor dispute in the Debtors' Chapter 11 cases
has been resolved by agreement, Mr. Ellenberg notes.  The Debtors
have also firm commitments to backstop a USUS$2.8 billion equity
rights offering as part of their exit from Chapter 11, he adds.

According to Mr. Ellenberg, the Debtors' 3rd Amended Plan
contemplates a three-piece exit financing:

  (1) Reorganized LyondellBasell will enter into a USUS$1.75
billion
      asset-based credit facility, which can be increased to
      USUS$2.0 billion, known as the ABL Facility, subject to
      satisfaction of certain conditions;

  (2) Subject to market conditions, Reorganized LyondellBasell
      will raise about USUS$2.25 billion of exit financing in the
      capital markets, through a notes offering.  Prior to
      confirmation, LBI Escrow Corporation, a yet to be formed,
      wholly owned subsidiary of non-Debtor LyondellBasell
      Industries N.V., will issue and sell the notes and place
      the proceeds into escrow, pending the confirmation and
      effective date of the 3rd Amended Plan; and

  (3) Subject to market conditions, Reorganized LyondellBasell
      will raise about USUS$1.00 billion of exit financing in
      the capital markets, through a term loan known as the
      Senior Term Loan Facility.  Prior to confirmation, LBI
      Escrow will borrow the term loan and place the proceeds
      into escrow, pending the confirmation and effective date
      of the 3rd Amended Plan.

The Debtors will determine the relative size of the notes
offering and term loan based on market conditions and their
determination of the optimal capital structure to further their
estates' interests; however, the aggregate amount of the notes
and the term loan together will equal USUS$3.25 billion.  The
Debtors will seek approval of the Exit Financing in connection
with confirmation of the 3rd Amended Plan, Mr. Ellenberg explains.

By this motion, the Debtors seek the Court's authority to:

  (A) incur and pay, in connection with:

      * the ABL Facility: agent, arranger and lender fees and
        expenses, commitment fees and indemnification of certain
        indemnified persons;

      * issuance of the Senior Notes: fees, expenses and
        indemnity obligations, including:

        (1) upfront fees to lenders, underwriting fees, and fees
            and expenses incurred in connection with the deposit
            of proceeds into escrow;

        (2) amounts sufficient to prefund certain interest
            payments on the notes and accreted original issue
            discount;

        (3) an additional amount representing up to 1.5% of the
            aggregate principal amount of the Senior Notes,
            which may become payable to the noteholders if
            certain conditions of the notes are not fulfilled;
            and

        (4) any escrow deficiency amounts;

      * the Senior Term Loan Facility: fees, expenses and
        indemnity obligations, including:

        (1) upfront fees to lenders, arrangement fees, and fees
            and expenses incurred in connection with the deposit
            of proceeds into escrow;

        (2) amounts sufficient to prefund certain interest
            payments on the term loans and accreted original
            issue discount; and

        (3) any escrow deficiency amounts;

  (B) permit non-Debtor LBI NV to form LBI Escrow to enter into
      the contemplated pre-confirmation transactions, which the
      Debtors will fund; and

  (C) authorize the Debtors to execute these agreements:

      (a) in connection with the ABL Facility:

           -- commitment letter and ABL fee letters, which will
              be executed by Lyondell Chemical Company only;

           -- an ABL credit agreement to be entered by Lyondell;
              Houston Refining LP; Equistar Chemicals LP and
              LyondellBasell Acetyls, LLC.

      (b) in connection with the Senior Notes:

           -- a senior notes engagement letter; and
           -- a purchase agreement and any related agreements.

      (c) in connection with the Senior Term Loan Facility:

           -- a senior term loan facility engagement letter; and
           -- a term loan agreement and any related agreements.

The Debtors further ask the Court to determine that any amounts
that they are obligated to pay be entitled to priority treatment
as administrative expenses of their estates.

The Debtors estimate the fees to be incurred pursuant to the Exit
Financing Transactions Motion to be about USUS$80 million.  In
addition, in the event that the escrow release conditions are not
met, the Debtors will be obligated to pay an additional amount of
about USUS$160 million in breakage fees, original issue discount
and
interest expenses to the purchasers of the notes, Mr. Ellenberg
discloses.

Approval of the Exit Financing Transactions Motion will assure
the Debtors of the availability of exit financing on favorable
terms and mitigate risks to their estates from future potentially
unfavorable changes in market conditions, Mr. Ellenberg says.
The current high yield debt markets are extremely favorable, he
tells the Court.  Against this backdrop, a short delay in the
pricing and funding of the notes and term loans could result in
long-term financing costs to Reorganized LyondellBasell that will
far exceed the fees and costs that are the subject of the Exit
Financing Motion, he maintains.

Secured Term Loan Facility are available for free at:

     http://bankrupt.com/misc/Lyondell_CommitmentPacts.pdf

                         *    *    *

Judge Gerber authorized the Debtors to enter into and perform
under the Exit Financing Agreements.  Judge Gerber also authorized
the Debtors to incur and pay all of their obligations set forth in
the Exit Financing Agreements consisting of about USUS$80 million
in
fees and about USUS$160 million in additional breakage fees,
original discount and interest, in the event that the release
conditions are not satisfied, on the terms and conditions set
forth in the order without further Court order.

Judge Gerber also authorized to the Debtors to cause the formation
of LBI Escrow to issue the Senior Notes and place the proceeds
into escrow, pending confirmation of the 3rd Amended Plan.

However, Judge Gerber did not authorize the Debtors to borrow any
funds under the Exit Financing Agreements or to pledge any assets
to secure any obligations under the Exit Financing, all of which
will be subject to approval in connection with confirmation of the
3rd Amended Plan.

Until consummation of the Plan, none of the proceeds of the Senior
Notes or the Term Loan will constitute property of the Debtors'
estates and none of the Debtors will be obligated to repay the
Senior Notes or the Term Loan, Judge Gerber added.

                         *     *     *

Citing the International Financing Review, Reuters reports that
Lyondell sold on March 24, 2010, its senior notes in dollars and
euros, totaling USUS$2.25 billion and EUR375 million,.  The
USUS$2.25
billion notes were priced to yield 477 basis points over compared
U.S. Treasurers and the EUR375 million notes were priced to yield
519 over the comparable Germand Bund, IFR told Reuters.

Bloomberg News also reported that Lyondell has increased its bond
sale by USUS$500 million while reducing its term loan by the same
amount as it prepares exit from bankruptcy.  As to the Senior
Secured Term Loan Facility, it will pay 4.25% percentage points
more than the London interbank offered rate with a 2% Libor floor,
the unnamed source explained to Bloomberg.  According to the
report, Libor is the rate banks charge to lend each other.  The
source noted that the Term Loan will be sold at a discount to face
value, Bloomberg says.

LYONDELL CHEMICAL: Wants to Enforce Stay Against Int'l Paper
------------------------------------------------------------
Debtor Millennium Specialty Chemicals, Inc. and Weyerhaeuser
Company entered into a base agreement, whereby Weyerhauser will
sell the Debtor a chemical called crude sulfate turpentine.

Weyerhaeuser subsequently entered into a transaction with
International Paper Company whereby International Paper purchased
certain assets and liabilities of Weyerhaeuser.  The Debtor and
International Paper also entered into a wrap-around agreement
whereby they agreed to be bound by the Base Agreement with certain
modifications, and that International Paper will sell 100% of the
turpentine it produced to Millennium.

The Agreements were automatically extended for an additional 12
months to December 31, 2010, pursuant to their own terms.
Pursuant to a letter dated November 30, 2009, International Paper
purported to give notice of termination of the Agreements,
effective June 30, 2010.

International Paper neither sought nor obtained relief from the
automatic stay or the January 7, 2009 Stay Order before taking
this action, Christopher R. Mirick, Esq., at Cadwalader,
Wickersham & Taft LLP, in New York, discloses.  The Debtor advised
International Paper by a letter dated January 13, 2010, that the
notice of termination was ineffective and the Agreement would
automatically roll-over for an additional 12 month period to
December 31, 2010.

International Paper's attempt to terminate the Agreements violates
the automatic stay protections provided to the Debtor under the
Bankruptcy Code and the Stay Order, Mr. Mirick asserts.  Both the
Bankruptcy Code and the Stay Order require International Paper to
fully perform its obligations under the Agreements in accordance
with their terms, and restrict International Paper from
unilaterally terminating the Agreements, he insists.

International Paper's termination of the Agreements and refusal to
continue to provide the Debtor with turpentine through December
31, 2010, will impair the Debtor's ability to conduct its business
in the normal course and to deliver product to certain of its
customers, Mirick points out.  This disruption in the Debtor's
business will damage its relationships with its customers and
potentially affect its ability to successfully reorganize, he
maintains.

Thus, the Debtors ask the Court to:

  (a) enforce the Stay Order against International Paper;

  (b) enjoin International Paper from violating the automatic
      stay and the Stay Order by unilaterally terminating its
      prepetition executory agreement with the Debtor, or from
      refusing to perform under the Agreements; and

  (c) hold that International Paper's attempt to give notice of
      termination of the Agreements is void and without effect.

entities, including Equistar Chemicals, LP, Lyondell Chemical
Company, Millennium Chemicals Inc., and Wyatt Industries, Inc.
filed for Chapter 11.  In May 2009, one of the cases was dismissed

LYONDELL CHEMICAL: Amoco to Reject Chocolate Bayou Purchase Pacts
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Amoco Chemical Company, as predecessor-in-interest to Ineos
Olefins & Polymers USA, and Quantum Chemical Corporation, as
predecessor-in-interest to Debtor Equistar Chemicals, L.P.,
entered into an agreement for the sale and purchase of assets for
the transfer of a tract of land and chemical plant that make up a
facility known as Chocolate Bayou Plant.  The Facility is located
within and surrounded by certain real property owned by Ineos
Olefins.

The consideration for the sale of the Facility was the payment of
US$44,972,340 plus additional amounts for inventories and the
entry
of the parties into an Ethylene Supply Agreement.  The transfer
occurred in April 1988 pursuant to two Special Warranty Deeds
recorded in the County of Brazoria in the state of Texas.

The Purchase Agreement includes certain options known as
Repurchase Options that permit Ineos to repurchase the Facility
on the same economic terms offered by an arm's-length purchaser
or at the appraised market value upon the occurrence of certain
events.  The Purchase Agreement also required the Repurchase
Options to be included in the Deeds.

At the time of the Facility transfer, the parties also entered
into 23 other agreements, including the Services Agreements,
whereby Ineos agreed to provide Equistar with certain services
and products necessary for the operation of the Facility.  Each
of the Services Agreements relates to products or services
provided by Ineos for the Facility and each agreement has its own
distinct consideration, term and subject matter.

By this motion, the Debtors seek to reject the Purchase Agreement
and the Repurchase Options, as of the date of the entry of an
order granting their request.

Moreover, the Debtors seek to assume certain Service Agreements
as of the effective date of their Third Amended Joint Plan of
Reorganization, a list of which is available for free at:

  http://bankrupt.com/misc/Lyondell_ServicePactstobeAssumd.pdf

Christopher R. Mirick, Esq., at Cadwalader, Wickersham & Taft
LLP, in New York, asserts that the Purchase Agreement and
Repurchase Options will impose a continuing burden on the
Debtors' estates for which the Debtors realize no commensurate
benefit.  The Repurchase Options also limit the Debtors' ability
to attract prospective buyers and chill the price at which
Debtors can sell the Facility, he says.  The Services Agreements,
by contrast, provide substantial benefit to the Debtors, he
points out.  The Debtors need the Services Agreements, and the
services they receive pursuant to those agreements, to continue
their presence at the Facility, he explains.

To the extent that either of the Purchase Agreement or the
Repurchase Options is not executory, Ineos Olefins has only a
prepetition unsecured claim for any damages arising from the
Debtors' nonperformance under the contract, Mr. Mirick relates.
The bar date for filing that claim was June 30, 2009.  The
Debtors reserve their rights regarding whether a proof of claim
has been timely filed for amounts due under the Ineos Agreements.

OERLIKON CORP: Losses Rises to CHF592 Million in 2009
-----------------------------------------------------
Haig Simonian at The Financial Times reports that Oerlikon
revealed weaker-than-expected 2009 results on Thursday, with
losses rising to CHF592 million (USUS$564 million).  The FT
relates the results followed a CHF422 million loss in 2008 and
highlighted the scale of the task facing the group.

According to the FT, new orders dropped by almost 30% to CHF3
billion, while orders in hand declined by more than 13% to CHF997
million, reflecting weak markets and the group's problems
convincing customers, often placing contracts with long lead
times, about its long term stability.  Sales in 2009 fell by
almost 38% to CHF2.88 billion, the FT says.

The FT notes the group warned that conditions remained tough, with
this year and part of 2011 would be characterized by
implementation of big operational restructuring plans.

                        Recapitalization

Citing the FT, the Troubled Company Reporter-Europe reported on
March 31, 2010, that Oerlikon said on March 29 its main
shareholder and bankers had agreed a CHF1 billion (USUS$939
million) recapitalization to restore the company to a more stable
financial footing.  The FT disclosed the main part of the plan
involves a 19:1 rights issue, priced at CHF3.72 a share -- a
fraction of the
group's share price.  The rights issue would be taken up fully by
Russian oligarch Viktor Vekselberg's Renova holding company, which
owns about 45% of Oerlikon, according to the FT.  Renova, which
has suffered a severe loss on its stake since investing in 2006,
would contribute CHF447 million-CHF400 million in cash and the
rest via a conversion of debt, the FT said.  The remaining CHF553
million would be offered to other shareholders, and if not taken
up would be underwritten fully by Oerlikon's lenders under a debt
for equity swap, the FT noted.  The banks would waive between
CHF25 million and CHF125 million of debt, with the degree of
forgiveness depending on the take-up of the rights issue,
according to the FT.

OC Oerlikon Corporation AG Pfaeffikon -- http://www.oerlikon.com/

Company divides its activities into six segments: Oerlikon

BARGAIN BOOKS: Bought Out of Administration; 77 Jobs Saved
----------------------------------------------------------
Belfast Telegraph reports that a new buyer has been found for
Bargain Books after the company was placed in administration last
week.

According to the report, under the terms of the administration,
the company will continue trading with the 77 staff keeping their
jobs.

The report notes the company's directors said that rising
overheads and competition from supermarkets and book chains had
created a difficult environment for the family-owned business.


BRP GROUP: Goes Into Administration Following Poor Sales
--------------------------------------------------------
Durham Times reports that BRP Group Limited has gone into
administration for the third time in 15 months, putting 78 jobs in
Bowburn and 360 nationwide at risk.  According to the report, the
administrators said the company had been unable to achieve
sufficient sales.

BRP Group Limited is a garage door firm based in Bowburn.


EMI GROUP: Talks Over GBP200 Mil. Distribution Deal Collapse
------------------------------------------------------------
Martin Arnold and Andrew Edgecliffe-Johnson at The Financial Times
report that EMI Group's talks about a GBP200 million (USUS$304
million) distribution deal collapsed, putting the company at risk
of not meeting a key bank test of its financial health.

According to the FT, an eleventh-hour attempt to sell distribution
rights in the Americas to Vivendi's Universal Music or Sony Music
fell apart over concerns about price, timing and whether the sale
could be blocked by Citigroup, which lent GBP3.2 billion for Terra
Firma's GBP4.2 billion buy-out of EMI in 2007.

EMI, the FT discloses, needed to book the cash from the proposed
five-year deal by 4.45 p.m. London time on Wednesday to avoid
breaching a quarterly test of the ratio of earnings to debt in its
loans from Citigroup.

The FT says Maltby Capital, EMI's holding company, must now return
to its earlier plan of trying to raise an "equity cure" of about
GBP120 million in new funds from investors.

Charles Allen, who became executive chairman of EMI Music after
this month's sudden exit of Elio Leoni-Sceti as chief executive of
the recorded music division, must now present Guy Hands, Terra
Firma's founder, with a new business plan which may include
further cost-cutting, asset sales or outsourcing deals, the FT
states.  If Mr. Hands approves it, the plan will form the basis of
his pitch to investors, the FT states.  Unless he persuades them
to inject new equity by a mid-June deadline, he risks losing
control to Citigroup of his biggest deal, the FT notes.

                       Going Concern Doubt

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter-Europe on Feb. 8,
2010, The Financial Times said KPMG, EMI Group's accountants,
raised "significant doubt" about the company's ability to continue
as a going concern.  The FT disclosed Guy Hands, Terra Firma's
founder and chairman, has written to investors in two of its
private equity funds asking them to inject another GBP120 million,
subject to EMI Music producing a new strategic plan.  He must come
up with the money by June 14 or risk losing the company to
Citigroup, his bankers, the FT said.  According to the FT,
accounts for the year to March 2009, released on February 9,
however, make clear that even if Terra Firma secures this equity,
it will face another "significant shortfall" against a test on
covenants in its loans by March 2011.  Unless it can persuade Citi
to restructure its GBP3.2 billion in loans by then, investors face
further cash calls, the FT stated.

EMI -- http://www.emigroup.com/-- is the fourth largest record
company in terms of market share (behind Universal Music Group,
Sony Music Entertainment, and Warner Music Group).  It houses
recorded music segment EMI Music and EMI Music Publishing.  EMI
Music distributes CDs, videos, and other formats primarily through
imprints and divisions such as Capitol Records and Virgin, and
sports a roster of artists such as The Beastie Boys, Norah Jones,
and Lenny Kravitz.  EMI Music Publishing, the world's largest
music publisher, handles the rights to more than a million songs.
EMI Music operates through regional divisions (EMI Music North
America, International, and UK & Ireland).  Private equity firm
Terra Firma owns EMI.


ETHEL AUSTIN: Administrators Sold Business Back to Former Owner
---------------------------------------------------------------
Michael Fahy at Crain's Manchester Business reports that MCR, the
administrators for Ethel Austin, has sold the business back to its
previous owner Elaine Macpherson.

According to the report, under the terms of the deal, which was
completed Thursday, Ms. Macpherson will buy back the business and
assets of the firm, including 90 of its stores, through a new
vehicle called Life & Style Retail Ltd.

"This is positive news for the 1,183 employees who were facing an
uncertain future," the report quoted joint administrator Geoff
Bouchier as saying.  "We are pleased with the result and believe
this is a suitable outcome, especially considering the tough
market and the lasting financial pressures from the recession."

The administrators added that no purchaser has been found for any
of the 41 stores that are due to close over the next two weeks,
the report notes.

Ethel Austin is one of Britain's value clothing retailers with a
nationwide network of stores extending from Scotland to the South
West, and from Wales to the South East.  The business was
established more than 70 years ago and has grown to become one
of Britain's leading value clothing retailers with a national
presence.


EXCEL SECURITIES: In Administration; Owes GBP17.5 Mil. to Banks
---------------------------------------------------------------
Simon Binns at Crain's Manchester Business reports that Excel
Securities has gone into administration.  The report relates Paul
Stanley, partner at the Manchester office of Begbies Traynor, was
appointed administrator of the company.

"There will be no redundancies in the short term.  We will spend
the coming weeks analyzing the company's financial position and
determine what the best route will be," the report quoted
Mr. Stanley as saying.  "It comes as no surprise that a company
which was providing bridging finance on property deals has found
itself in trouble given the lack of liquidity in the market."

According to the report, the company owes GBP17.5 million to three
funding banks, GBP6 million to other investors and GBP500,000 to
creditors.

Excel Securities is a bridging loans firm based in Manchester.
The company employs six people from its Mosley Street office.


LASER ELECTRICAL: In Administration; KPMG Seeks Buyer
-----------------------------------------------------
Symon Ross at Belfast Telegraph reports that Laser Electrical Ltd.
has gone into administration.  The report relates the directors of
the company, which has 10 stores and 140 full and part-time
employees, called in administrators KPMG late Thursday after
running into cashflow difficulties.

According to the report, John Hansen, joint administrator, said
Laser's directors had been in negotiations to bring in new
investment over the past few months but had not been successful.
The report notes Mr. Hansen said that falling turnover, a squeeze
on profit margins and general economic uncertainty have led to its
problems.

"All stores have been closed until further notice while the Joint
Administrators carry out an assessment of the business and the
options for the way forward," the report quoted Mr. Hansen as
saying.

Mr. Hansen, as cited in the report, said while the process is
ongoing, employees have been advised not to return to work until
this week.  He said that the administrators would try to find a
buyer this week in order to save their jobs, according to the
report.  If one could not be found it is likely that the company's
stock would be sold and the business closed, the report states.

Northern Ireland-based Laser Electrical Ltd. sells electrical
products.


PFL LIMITED: In Administration; MCR Appointed
---------------------------------------------
Stephen Clancy and David Whitehouse of MCR were appointed joint
administrators of PFL Limited on March 19, 2010.

The Company was incorporated on February 1, 1999, as the
subsidiary of a registered charity, Partnership for Learning,
based in South Merseyside.

The Company was initially incorporated to meet the training and
development requirements of the three major employers in the area;
Jaguar Land Rover, Novartis and Eli Lilly.  The objective was to
improve the competitiveness of local companies by creating a
workforce with the relevant skills to attract new employers into
the region.

During September 2009, PFL Centre of Excellence Limited purchased
100% of the share capital of the Company from the Charity.

A corollary of factors led to the Company's financial position
becoming untenable and the subsequent appointment of joint
administrators.

The Company is continuing to trade in administration on a
'business as usual basis' and the joint administrators are hopeful
that a going concern sale of the business and assets will be
achieved shortly.


YOUR SPACE: In Administration; 14 Jobs Affected
-----------------------------------------------
James Chapelard at Crain's Manchester Business reports that Your
Space Ltd. has been put into administration with the loss of 14
jobs after it failed to meet proposals set out in a company
voluntary arrangement agreed upon with creditors.

The report recalls Bill Dawson and Daniel Butters of Deloitte were
previously appointed as joint supervisors of interlocking company
voluntary arrangements, approved by the creditors in November
2009.  Messrs. Dawson and Butters were appointed joint
administrators of the company, Your Space (UK) Ltd. and Work Space
(North West) Ltd. on March 26, the report notes.  Your Space plc
was previously listed on AIM but had its shares cancelled on March
16, the report relates.

"During the CVA, the group was unable to dispose of key real
estate and subsequently has been unable to invest in its
contracting business," the report quoted Mr. Dawson as saying.
"As a consequence of the underperformance in the contracting
business, the conversion rate of buildings to further serviced
office space has reduced significantly, and trading performance
has fallen below that required to meet the proposals set out in
the CVA."

The report recounts that creditors owed GBP5.5 million by the firm
agreed in September 2009 to accept 20p on the pound as part of a
CVA.  The biggest creditors were Bank of Ireland and HM Revenue
and Customs, the report discloses.

Your Space Ltd., previously Your Space UK plc, is a provider of
serviced office space and a developer of property, both for sale
and its own use.

                            *********

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 USUS$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.
