A-TEC INDUSTRIES: Vitkovice Asks for AE&E Sale Documentation
------------------------------------------------------------
Vitkovice Heavy Machinery AS has asked for official documentation
about the sale of the AE&E unit owned by A-Tec Industries AG,
Lenka Ponikelska at Bloomberg News reports, citing a spokeswoman.

Bloomberg relates Eva Kijonkova said in a phone interview on
Monday the Ostrava, Czech Republic-based engineering company, is
waiting to receive the materials before making further decisions
about the process.

Meanwhile, Zoe Schneeweiss at Bloomberg News reports that Deloitte
said a valuation of A-Tec is due in December, rejecting reports of
a Nov. 21 deadline.

According to Bloomberg, Deloitte said in an e-mailed statement on
Monday that the auditor also rejected media reports that it may
have valued A-Tec's AE&E unit at EUR900 million.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter-Europe on Nov. 23,
2010, Hans-Georg Kantner, the spokesman of A-Tec's creditor
committee, as cited by Bloomberg News, said talks to sell the AE&E
unit are continuing.  Austrian daily newspaper Wiener Zeitung had
earlier reported that Mass Financial Corp had pulled out of talks
to buy the unit, while magazine Format said talks with Austrian
investor Ronny Pecik had failed, according to Bloomberg.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter-Europe on Nov. 5,
2010, Bloomberg News said the AE&E unit, which builds power plants
for clients such as utilities or steel makers, is A-Tec's biggest
unit with 60% of the group's revenue and 83% of pretax profit in
2009.  Bloomberg noted failure to keep it afloat would diminish
the funds for creditors.

On Oct. 22, 2010, the Troubled Company Reporter-Europe, citing
Bloomberg News, reported that A-Tec sought court clearance to
reorganize debt after losing access to its line of credit because
of an Australian power-station project's financial difficulties.
Bloomberg disclosed A-Tec said in a statement on Oct. 20 that the
company filed for self-administered reorganization proceedings at
the Vienna Commercial Court and appointed trustees for
bondholders.  Bloomberg said A-Tec has 90 days under Austrian law
to seek an agreement with lenders, after which it can seek full
protection from creditors.  The company has a EUR798 million
(US$1.11 billion) revolving credit facility and EUR302 million of
outstanding bonds, according to Bloomberg data.

A-Tec Industries AG is an engineering company based in Vienna,
Austria.

KAUPTHING BANK: Formally Enters Winding-Up Procedures
-----------------------------------------------------
Kaupthing Bank hf's resolution committee, citing a ruling by the
District Court of Reykjavik, said in an e-mailed statement on
Monday that the bank formally entered winding-up procedures, Omar
R. Valdimarsson at Bloomberg News reports.

"Icelandic law provides for the automatic end of the moratorium
period upon entering into a winding-up procedure," the bank's
resolution committee said in the statement, according to
Bloomberg.

Bloomberg notes the committee said the move won't impact the
bank's ability to hold its assets until maturity "if deemed
beneficial rather than disposing of them immediately."

According to Bloomberg, the committee said it will continue to be
responsible for the claims process.

ANGLO IRISH: Has Debt Buyback Deal With Subordinated Bondholders
----------------------------------------------------------------
Simon Carswell at The Irish Times reports that Anglo Irish Bank
has cleared the first hurdle in securing a deal with investors in
the bank's subordinated bonds, netting a gain by offering the
investors just 20% of the face value of their debt.

The Irish Times relates in a closely watched debt exchange to
share Anglo losses with the bondholders, the bank secured the
agreement of 92% of the investors holding loan notes of
EUR750 million due in 2017.

According to The Irish Times, the bank has made the same offer to
provide new bonds at a value of 20% of the original value of the
debt to investors in two of Anglo's other subordinated bonds due
in 2014 and 2016.

The Irish Times says investors who decline the offer will only
receive one cent for every EUR1,000 of debt they owe in a proposal
that was described by analysts as tantamount to default.

Bondholders with about EUR690 million of the 2017 notes, or 92% of
the debt, agreed to the bank's offer, The Irish Times discloses.
The vote brings the bank a gain of about EUR560 million, The Irish
Times notes.

Anglo will hold two more votes on the same 20-cent-in-the-euro
exchange on a EUR325 million 2014 bond and a EUR500 million 2016
bond next month, according to The Irish Times.  The bank stands to
make a gain of EUR1.6 billion if all the offers are accepted, The
Irish Times says.

A final vote on the 2014 and 2016 notes will be held on
December 22 in an exchange that is seen as a bellwether for a
similar burden-sharing move at Irish Nationwide Building Society,
The Irish Times states.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter-Europe on Oct. 29,
2010, 2010, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services lowered its rating
on Anglo Irish Bank Corp. Ltd.'s nondeferrable dated subordinated
debt (lower Tier 2) securities to 'D' from 'CCC'.  The downgrade
of the lower Tier 2 debt rating reflects S&P's opinion that the
bank's exchange offer is a "distressed exchange" and tantamount to
default in accordance with its criteria.


ANGLO IRISH: Loses EUR13 Billion in Deposits This Year
------------------------------------------------------
Laura Noonan at Irish Independent reports that Anglo Irish Bank
Chairman Alan Dukes on Monday admitted that the bank has lost
EUR13 billion in deposits this year and "could" need further state
support as part of the banking bailout.

According to Irish Independent, Mr. Dukes called on the government
to take "decisive action" and put more money into the banks rather
than establishing a contingency fund that could be accessed later.

Anglo's deposit base fell by just EUR4 billion in the first half
of the year, but Mr. Dukes on Monday told the Irish Independent
year-to-date losses were now running at EUR13 billion.

Most of the withdrawals are understood to be corporate, with money
flowing out after Anglo's ratings downgrades, Irish Independent
notes.

Irish Independent relates Mr. Dukes said Anglo "could" end up
getting fresh money as part of the banking bailout, a development
that would push Anglo's total taxpayer costs above the EUR29
billion-EUR34 billion already penciled in.

DECO 10: Fitch Affirms Rating on Class D Notes at 'CCCsf'
---------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed DECO 10 - Pan Europe 4 p.l.c, a
commercial mortgage-backed securitization.  The rating actions
are;

  -- EUR251.2m class A1 due October 2019 (XS0276266888) affirmed
     at 'AAAsf'; Outlook Stable

  -- EUR276.8m class A2 due October 2019 (XS0276271375) affirmed
     at 'Asf'; Outlook Negative

  -- EUR31.9m class B due October 2019 (XS0276272001) affirmed at
     'BBB-sf'; Outlook Negative

  -- EUR31.9m class C due October 2019 (XS0276273074) affirmed at
     'Bsf'; Outlook Negative

  -- EUR19m class D due October 2019 (XS0276273660) affirmed at
     'CCCsf'; assigned Recovery Rating 'RR6'

The affirmation reflects the stable collateral performance over
the past 12 months.  While the second largest loan (Treveria II)
continues to suffer from cash flow issues, this is in line with
Fitch's expectations.  The portfolio benefits from above-average
interest coverage: the weighted-average A-note interest coverage
ratio has improved to 2.5x currently from 2.2x at closing in
December 2006.

The Negative Outlook on the class A2, B and C notes is driven by
continued balloon risk.  Approximately 70% of the portfolio is due
to mature in 2013, leaving the transaction exposed to refinancing
conditions at that point.  In addition, five of the 10 loans have
a Fitch A-note loan-to-value in excess of 100%.  The presence of
B-notes in three of the loans further increases leverage.

The Dresdner Portfolio loan (the largest at 34.8% of the
portfolio) has experienced stable performance since closing,
mainly as a result of the length of in-place leases.  However,
approximately 14% of rent is subject to possible lease termination
this year, with a further 25% at risk before the end of 2012,
making ongoing falls in income likely.  The servicer reports that
many of the expiring leases are under negotiation for renewal.
However, Fitch believes that any re-lettings are likely to
incorporate rent-free periods or other tenant incentives and
therefore offer no immediate benefit to cash flow.  The balance of
the interest-only loan has decreased by almost 50% since closing
due to substantial asset disposals; this has benefited the class
A1 notes as all proceeds are applied sequentially.  However, the
loan leverage has not seen a corresponding improvement: over the
past year, the LTV has only fallen to 46.9% from 47.2% despite the
sale of 17 assets.

The Treveria II loan (17.6%) has continued to suffer from falls in
income due to the loss of tenants; this led to a breach of the
debt service coverage ratio trigger in July 2009 and a subsequent
restructure of the loan.  In return for equity injections to help
with the running costs of the portfolio, the servicer waived the
DSCR and LTV covenants until February 2011.  The portfolio will be
revalued in December 2010; should the value have continued to
deteriorate since the last valuation in July 2010, the sponsor
will be required to inject a further EUR1.5m to allow for an
additional extension to the covenants.  Given the upcoming
maturity in July 2011, Fitch does not expect the restructure to
significantly improve the loan's exit position.


SEA FORT: S&P Raises Rating on Class E Notes to 'BB+ (sf)'
----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services raised its credit ratings on
SEA FORT Securities PLC's class B, C, D, and E notes.  At the same
time, S&P affirmed the rating on the class A notes.

Since closing in July 2006, the transaction has amortized
significantly and now has a pool factor of 17%.  As a result,
credit enhancement has increased across the capital structure.

The portfolio underlying the transaction has experienced very
limited defaults, and currently no losses have been allocated to
the notes.  S&P's analysis indicates that while 3.3% of the
reference portfolio is classified as defaulted according to Danske
Bank's internal credit rating system, losses that may arise from
these obligations are unlikely to exceed the subordination
provided by the class F notes.

The pool is significantly more concentrated than at closing, with
the top 10 obligors currently accounting for 37% of the portfolio.
This high level of concentration risk provides a limiting factor
on the extent of S&P's upgrades.

SEA FORT Securities is a partially-funded balance sheet
collateralized loan obligation, referencing a portfolio of loans
granted by Sampo Bank PLC to Finnish SMEs and corporate clients.
Danske Bank Group acquired Sampo Bank in 2007.

TAURUS CMBS:: Fitch Affirms Rating on Class D Notes at 'Bsf'
------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has upgraded Taurus CMBS (Pan-Europe) 2006-3 plc's
class A floating-rate notes, due May 2015, and revised the Rating
Outlook on the class B, C and D notes:

  -- EUR119.9m class A due May 2015 (XS0274566420) upgraded to
     'AAAsf' from 'AAsf'; Outlook Stable

  -- EUR31.2m class B due May 2015 (XS0274569523) affirmed at
     'BBBsf'; Outlook revised to Stable from Negative

  -- EUR11.1m class C due May 2015 (XS0274570372) affirmed at
     'BBsf'; Outlook revised to Stable from Negative

  -- EUR5.4m class D due May 2015 (XS0274570703) affirmed at
     'Bsf'; Outlook revised to Stable from Negative

The rating actions reflect the increased credit enhancement
following the repayment of three loans during 2010 and the
improved refinancing prospects of the remaining Swiss loans in the
portfolio.

Taurus CMBS (Pan Europe) 2006-3 PLC is a securitization currently
comprising three commercial mortgage loans originated by
subsidiaries of Merrill Lynch & Co. ('A+'/RWN/'F1+'), which closed
in November 2006.  Between July and November 2010 the Phone,
Vich/Brig and Trafalgar loans were fully repaid and the Epic loan
was partially repaid, leaving the loan pool with a current balance
of EUR109.4 million.  Redemption proceeds from the Phone,
Vich/Brig and Epic facilities have already been applied to the
notes, while the repayment of the Trafalgar loan will be reflected
at the next payment date.

Of the remaining loans, one is scheduled to mature in January
2011, and two in 2013.  While all are currently performing,
Fitch's weighted average loan-to-value ratio of 94% is
considerably higher than the reported WA LTV of 68%.  The reported
LTVs are based on valuations conducted in December 2009 and
February 2009 for the Epic and Triumph loans, respectively, and
prior to closing for the K-Berg facility.

The MZ-Triumph loan is the largest exposure in the portfolio, with
a current outstanding balance of EUR52.8 million, and is the A-
note of a larger whole loan.  It is secured by secondary retail
properties in north Berlin that have seen stable income
performance since closing.  Fitch estimates the current LTV of the
A-note to be 96%, implying a market value decline of 29% versus
the reported valuation as at February 2009.  The loan is scheduled
to mature in April 2013.

The K-Berg loan has a current outstanding balance of CHF37.4
million and is also the A-note of a larger whole loan.  It is
secured by a campus of industrial and office properties located
20km outside Zurich and is fully let to Soudronic AG on a lease
with over 10 years remaining.  Should the current tenant
experience financial difficulties, it may be difficult to find a
replacement tenant for the property due to its out-of-town
location.  The current Fitch LTV of the loan is 92%, implying an
MVD of 26% versus the reported valuation as at February 2006.  The
loan is scheduled to mature in April 2013.

After the partial repayments seen during this year, the Epic loan
is now secured by a single retail asset in Switzerland anchored by
Coop.  Investment liquidity for this type of asset remains strong
in Switzerland, and Fitch expects the last asset to be refinanced
at, or shortly after, the extended loan maturity in January 2011.

TELENET FINANCE: Moody's Assigns (P)'Ba3' Rating to Senior Notes
----------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service assigned a (P) Ba3 rating to the EUR100
million senior secured notes due 2016 to be issued by Telenet
Finance Luxembourg II S.A.

Telenet intends to use proceeds for general corporate purposes
which may include shareholder disbursements in 2011, in the
absence of material debt-financed acquisitions.  The (P)Ba3 rating
on the notes reflects the fact that the debt issuance does not
change Telenet's Ba3 CFR; and that the notes are effectively
pari-passu with Telenet's senior secured 2020 bonds and bank debt.

                        Ratings Rationale

Telenet Finance II is incorporated in Luxembourg as a special
purpose vehicle created solely to issue the proposed senior
secured notes to finance a EUR100 million term loan facility to
Telenet International Finance S.a r.l. (formerly Telenet
International Finance S.A.).  The terms of the Proceeds loan will
be recorded in the Facility N Accession Agreement under the
Telenet Senior Credit Facility.

Moody's understands that Telenet Finance II is unable to issue
additional debt.  Noteholders indirectly benefit from the terms
(including maintenance financial covenants) of the Senior Credit
Facility, plus incurrence covenants within the Facility N
Accession Agreement.  They also have security over the Issuer's
shares and over its assets, including its rights to and benefit in
the Proceeds loan.  However, Moody's notes that the holders of the
notes will have only indirect recourse to Telenet International so
that in an enforcement scenario they would have to enforce the
security interest in the Proceeds loan, and subsequently enforce
the collateral granted in favor of the Proceeds loan.

The Ba3 corporate family rating reflects Telenet's continued solid
operational performance supported by the company's multi-play
strategy.  However, the rating also takes into account (i) the
intensive competition that Telenet faces particularly from
incumbent operator, Belgacom, and also from mobile operators such
as Mobistar; (ii) the company's limited size of operations
compared with global peers; and (iii) the expectation that Telenet
in future will continue to pay out (at least) all of the
internally generated free cash flow (as defined by Telenet) in
shareholder disbursements (in the absence of suitable acquisition
opportunities); implying that the company will be relying largely
on EBITDA growth for operating within its own leverage target
parameters (see below).

Moody's notes that Telenet intends to increase its net senior
leverage ratio (calculated as per its Senior Credit Facility
definition -- excluding the capitalized elements of indebtedness
under the clientele and annuity fees and any other finance leases)
to 3.5x (which implies a reported net total debt leverage of
around 4.0x) by the end of 2011.  This is likely to be executed
entirely via shareholder disbursements should acquisitions not
materialize during the year.  The agency notes that Telenet
remains committed towards maintaining its net reported total
leverage between 3x-4x prior to any debt-financed acquisitions
which could take leverage outside this range.

At 30 June 2010, the company's reported last twelve months net
total debt leverage was 3.6x pro-forma the shareholder
distribution of approximately EUR250 million on August 2, 2010.
This was equivalent to Moody's adjusted Gross Debt-to-EBITDA of
4.0x.  Moody's notes that at September 30, 2010, the company's
reported last twelve months net total debt leverage has further
reduced to 3.3x.  Despite relatively modest leverage for the
rating category, Telenet's CFR at Ba3 currently remains
constrained by the expected increase in leverage from current
levels in 2011 combined with the uncertainty regarding debt-
financed acquisitions.  In this regard, Moody's also incorporates
the fact that Telenet is majority-owned by Liberty Global (rated
Ba3, negative outlook).

Moody's issues provisional ratings in advance of the final sale of
securities and these ratings reflect Moody's preliminary credit
opinion regarding the transaction only.  Upon a conclusive review
of the final documentation, Moody's will endeavor to assign a
definitive rating to the Notes.  A definitive rating may differ
from a provisional rating.

                What Could Change the Rating - Up

Upward rating pressure would develop if, inter alia, the company
demonstrates clear commitment to maintain its gross debt to EBITDA
solidly below 4.5x (as calculated by Moody's) on a sustained
basis.  A move to positive free cash flow generation (as defined
by Moody's -- post capex and dividends) would also be a positive
factor.

               What Could Change the Rating - Down

An increase in leverage at or above 5.5x Gross Debt/ EBITDA (as
adjusted by Moody's) resulting from significant debt-financed M&A
activity and/ or aggressive shareholder remuneration together with
sustained negative free cash flow (as calculated by Moody's) would
exert downward pressure on the rating.

Headquartered in Mechelen, Belgium, Telenet Group Holding NV is
the largest provider of cable services in Belgium.  Currently,
US-based Liberty Global Consortium (rated Ba3/Negative) owns
approximately 50.3% of Telenet.  For the financial year ending
December 31, 2009, Telenet reported revenues of EUR1.2 billion
with 50.7% Adjusted EBITDA margin (as calculated by the company).

DSB BANK: Loan Investors to Decide on Settlement of Client Claims
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Jurjen van de Pol at Bloomberg News reports that investors in
EUR3.12 billion (US$4.28 billion) of securitized consumer loans
sold by DSB Bank NV have to decide whether they will allow the
lender's administrator to settle claims from customers.

According to Bloomberg, the notes, backed by consumer loans and
mortgages, were issued by four special-purpose vehicles, including
Monastery 2006-I BV and Chapel 2003-I BV.

A meeting of noteholders is scheduled for Dec. 7, Bloomberg says,
citing an e-mailed statement Monday from ATC Capital Markets,
manager of the vehicles.

"The bankruptcy receiver already has a mandate to negotiate a
possible settlement with customers whose loans weren't
securitized, now we ask noteholders to grant him such a mandate
for the securitized loans," Bloomberg quote Ello Dusee of ATC in
Amsterdam as saying by telephone.

DSB's bankruptcy receiver got almost 8,000 complaints from
clients, most of whom say the bank failed to meet its duty of care
toward customers, Bloomberg notes.  Almost 3,000 clients plan to
deduct a possible claim from their outstanding loans, Bloomberg
states.

"I still expect noteholders in aggregate to get back a material
part of the principal," Mr. Dusee, as cited by Bloomberg, said.
"Were such a settlement mandate not being approved and thus not
being given to the bankruptcy receivers, I would expect losses on
those loans also to be incurred, only after several years of
arduous court cases with individual borrowers."

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter-Europe on Oct. 20,
2009, Bloomberg News said that the Amsterdam court on Oct. 19
declared DSB bankrupt after its owner failed to find a buyer.
Bloomberg disclosed the Dutch central bank took control of DSB on
Oct. 12 as an outflow of capital threatened the company's
existence.

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.

TMK OAO: S&P Changes Outlook to Stable; Affirms 'B' Rating
----------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that it had revised its
outlook on Russia-based pipe manufacturer OAO TMK to stable from
negative and affirmed its long-term corporate credit rating on TMK
at 'B'.  At the same time, the Russia national scale rating was
raised to 'ruA-' from 'ruBBB+'.  The outlook is now stable.

"The outlook revision, the raising of the national scale rating,
and the affirmation of the long-term rating reflect the
improvement in TMK's liquidity, as well as a stabilization in its
operating and financial performance," said Standard & Poor's
credit analyst Andrey Nikolaev.

The stable outlook reflects S&P's expectation of stable operating
and financial performance in 2011 and gradually improving credit
metrics.

"The ratings could come under pressure if liquidity deteriorates
again as 2012 maturities approach, unless the company refinances
them proactively," said Mr. Nikolaev.  "A new downturn in the pipe
market could also pressure the ratings."

Ratings upside could follow further important improvements in
liquidity and positive FOCF generation leading to debt reduction
and stronger credit metrics.  The fully adjusted ratio of funds
from operations to debt at about 15%-20% would be commensurate
with the 'B+' rating.


* Fitch Affirms Yaroslavl Region's 'BB-' LT Currency Ratings
------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has revised the Russian Yaroslavl Region's Outlooks
to Positive from Stable and affirmed the region's Long-term
foreign and local currency ratings at 'BB-' respectively.  Its
other ratings have been affirmed at Short-term foreign currency
'B' and National Long-term 'A+(rus)'.

The revision of the Outlook reflects Fitch's expectation that
Yaroslavl Region will benefit from the improved macro-economic
environment in Russia in 2010 and over the medium term, which will
support its tax revenue and provide greater flexibility in
refinancing maturing debt obligations.  The ratings reflect the
region's sound budgetary performance, stabilized debt and adequate
liquidity.  The ratings also consider the exposure of its tax-base
to business cycles in the industrial sector and its short-term
debt profile with considerable amount of maturities over the next
12 months.  The ratings could be upgraded if the region's
budgetary performance remains sound with sustained margins of
around 15% and if the debt profile maturity is lengthened over the
medium term.

Yaroslavl's operating margin increased to 19.9% in 2009 from 13.4%
in 2008, underpinned by ad-hoc federal current transfers.  The
region posted a surplus before debt variation at RUB2.7 billion in
2009 after a RUB3.2 billion deficit in 2008.  Fitch expects the
region's budgetary performance to be supported by sustainable
improvement of tax revenue in 2010-2012 leading to a full-year
operating margin of about 14%-15% by the year-end and 15%-16% in
2011-2012.

The region's direct risk decreased to 32.6% of current revenue in
2009 (2008: 41.1%), or at RUB10.1 billion (2008: RUB9.9 billion).
The direct risk payback ratio decreased to two years of the
current balance in 2009 from four years in 2008.  The direct risk
profile of the region is short-term, with significant exposure to
refinancing risk.  Immediate refinancing needs on loans amortizing
by end-Q410 are fully covered by cash reserves, which increased to
RUB2.6 billion in 2009 (2008: RUB1.1 billion).  In 2011 the region
will have to refinance RUB6.4 billion worth of maturing loans and
bonds; Fitch expects the region to manage the refinancing pressure
and protect its direct risk and direct risk payback ratios on safe
level.

The local economy was boosted by the celebration of the City of
Yaroslavl's 1,000th anniversary in 2010, as the region's capex on
cultural heritage restoration and infrastructure projects
increased substantially in 2008-2010.  Yaroslavl's socio-economic
profile is sound with above-national-average wealth indicators;
local administration expects GRP to grow 2.4% yoy in 2010 and 3%-
4% in 2011-2012 due to recovering business activity.  The
Yaroslavl region is located in the northern part of European
Russia and accounted for 0.9% of the national population.  Its GRP
represented 0.6% of the national GDP in 2008.

CATTLES PLC: Welcome Financial Creditors Back Debt Compromise
-------------------------------------------------------------
Ben Livesey at Bloomberg News reports that Cattles Plc said
certain financial creditors of Welcome Financial Services Ltd.
will continue to support proposals for a consensual restructuring
including a compromise of Cattles' subordinated intercompany
claims against WFSL and other subsidiaries in the group for an
amount which may be less than GBP39 million.

According to Bloomberg, Cattles said it had agreed to compromise
its claims for not less than GBP39 million.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter-Europe on Oct. 25,
2010, Cattles, as cited by Bloomberg News, said creditors would
lose GBP1 billion (US$1.6 billion) as it continues talks to
restructure the company.  Bloomberg disclosed trading in the
company's stock was suspended in April last year after the company
failed to provision sufficiently for bad debts and breached
covenants with its banks.  Cattles said the lender would announce
a significant loss when it announces 2009 audited results in the
"near future," according to Bloomberg.

Cattles plc -- http://www.cattles.co.uk/-- is a financial
services company engaged in providing consumer credit to non-
standard customers in the United Kingdom and the provision of debt
recovery services to external clients and the Company's consumer
credit business.  Cattles also provides working capital finance
for small and medium size businesses.

                           *     *     *

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter-Europe on Aug. 9,
2010, Fitch Ratings revised Cattles Plc's senior unsecured bonds'
Recovery Rating to 'RR6' from 'RR5'.  At the same time, Fitch
affirmed Cattles' Long-term Issuer Default rating at 'C', Short-
term IDR at 'C' and senior unsecured bonds (ISIN XS0181857847 and
XS0308397149) at Long-term 'C'.


CHEMTURA CORP: Hearing on UK Pension Deal Set for Nov. 30
---------------------------------------------------------
Judge Robert E. Gerber of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Southern District of New York will convene a hearing on
November 30, 2010, at 9:45 a.m. (ET), to consider approval of the
stipulation entered by Chemtura Corporation, et al., and the
Trustees of the Great Lakes UK Pension Plan.  Objections, if any,
were due 4:00 p.m., Tuesday, November 23.

The Debtors asked the Bankruptcy Court to approve a stipulation
regarding certain proofs of claim filed by the UK Pension
Trustees.

In October 2009, the UK Pension Trustees filed 27 contingent,
unliquidated proofs of claim in each of the Debtors' Chapter 11
cases asserting, among other things, that the Debtors may at some
time owe obligations on account of the UK Pension Plan as a result
of hypothetical future enforcement action by the UK Pensions
Regulator.

The stipulation is intended to resolve the Debtors' objection to
the Trustees of the Great Lakes UK Pension Plan's Proofs of Claim
and for the withdrawal of the UK Pension Trustees' proofs of
claim.

The stipulation provides for resolution of the UK Pension Claims
in a non-bankruptcy forum -- the Reorganized Debtors do not
believe that the Court is the proper forum to adjudicate liability
on account of foreign pension obligations.  In light of the full
payment contemplated under the Debtors' Plan of Reorganization to
all creditors and the unique circumstances involved in the
adjudication of pension claims, the Reorganized Debtors agreed to
resolve the UK Pension Claims in the applicable non-bankruptcy
forum.

The Debtors added that the stipulation does not result in an
admission or a waiver of any right of any Debtor or Reorganized
Debtor or non-Debtor to contest the UK Pension Claims on any
ground, except no party may assert that UK Pension Claims were
discharged pursuant to the Debtors' plan of reorganization.

COMPANY CLASSWARE: To Be Placed Into Administration
---------------------------------------------------
Company Classwear owner Andrew Spooner said that the business had
ceased trading and was due to be placed into administration, BBC
News reports.

According to BBC News, Wendy Hocking, manager of Holmhirst
Preschool in Woodseats, said that many parents had outstanding
paid orders.  BBC News relates that Mr. Spooner said all orders of
clothes already paid for would be honored.

Mr. Spooner apologized on behalf of the company and said parents
would receive their orders or a refund, BBC News adds.

Headquartered in Bolsterstone, Company Classwear makes school
uniforms.


HOWES AND SONS: Goes Into Administration
----------------------------------------
Howes and Sons Ltd., trading as Howes of Fakenham, has gone into
administration.

James Batchelor at Car Dealer Magazine reports that the Peugeot
dealer had an annual turnover of GBP3 million.

According to Car Dealer Magazine, the joint administrators, Julian
Pitts and David Wilson of Begbies Traynor in Leeds, will continue
to trade the business as normal while a new owner is sought.   No
immediate redundancies of the 13 staff are currently planned, Car
Dealer Magazine relates.

Car Dealer Magazine notes Mr. Pitts said: "The directors and
shareholders of the company very much regret that they have had to
come to the decision to place the company in administration.
Following the sad deaths of two long-serving employees and the
imminent retirement of its managing director there is no natural
successor to what has hitherto been a family run company.  The
company is also facing a substantial, albeit disputed, liability
to make up an alleged deficit in its part of the Motor Industry
Pension Fund following re-assessments of the pension fund's
requirements.  These circumstances have led to the need for an
orderly disposal of the company's business and assets."

Howes and Sons Ltd, which can trace its routes back to 1784, has
been has been selling cars in the area for 50 years.


LONDON TOWN: GRS Inns to Compensate Tenants at Pub
--------------------------------------------------
John Harrington at Morning Advertiser reports that GRS Inns said
it will compensate tenants at a pub that can't sell alcohol after
the license lapsed when London Town went into administration.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter-Europe on
February 23, 2010, David Chubb and Mike Jervis of
PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP were appointed as joint administrators
to London Town Plc and one of its subsidiaries, GRS Inns Limited,
on February 19, 2010, as part of a financial restructuring.  In
common with other companies in this sector, the business has
experienced difficult trading conditions and has been unable to
meet its debt covenants and other obligations.  As a result the
Company was placed into administration as part of a financial
restructuring of the group.

According to Morning Advertiser, customers have been bringing
their own alcohol to the Fox Inn at Souldern, Oxfordshire, which
faces being 'dry' until mid-December.  The report relates GRS Inns
took control of the pub after London Town went into
administration.

Morning Advertiser notes that joint tenant Alistair Tuffin said
his council called him to say the premises license had lapsed
after London Town, the named premises license holder, folded.

GRS Inns has applied for a new premises license but this won't
arrive until December 13, Morning Advertiser says.

In the meantime the tenants are not allowed to sell alcohol,
accept by the limited number of Temporary Events Notices that are
available, Morning Advertiser discloses.

The report notes that Mr. Tuffin said: "We will have been at the
Fox for three years on November 23, 2010, and have slowly built up
a reputation that is now in jeopardy of being destroyed.  As you
can imagine, not being able to sell alcohol has already affected
the business. Fortunately our clientele is very understanding and
have been bringing a bottle when they come to dine with us.  This,
however, does not help with the run up to one of our busiest times
of the year, or with paying suppliers in already hard times."

GRS, Morning Advertiser relates, has paid the tenants GBP2,000 in
initial compensation and they are to meet next Tuesday to discuss
full remuneration.  Rent is not being charged while the pub is
unlicensed.

GRS operations director Russell Cowtheray said solicitors were
employed to transfer the premises licenses across the estate after
London Town went into administration, the report adds.

London Town Plc is the holding company of a pub group which
operates approximately 350 pubs either under lease and tenancy
agreements or through the direct management of pubs.


ROK PLC: Mansell to Finish Housing Projects in Somerset
-------------------------------------------------------
Two affordable housing developments in Somerset which were being
built by Rok PLC are to be finished, BBC News reports.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter-Europe on Nov. 10,
2010, Wiltshire Times said Rok plc and Rok Building Limited went
into administration and Robert Hunt, Michael Jarvis, and Robert
Lewis and Jeremy Webb, all of PwC, were appointed as joint
administrators.

According to BBC News, the company was building 40 homes at Copse
Lane, Ilton, and 39 at Hillcrest in Templecombe for Yarlington
Housing Group.  BBC News relates that Rok PLC's interests in
south-west England have now been acquired by Mansell Construction
Services.

A spokesman from Yarlington Housing Group said it had entered
negotiations with the company to complete the contracts, BBC News
noted.  The work would be finished by March 2011 upon agreement of
the terms, the spokesman added.

ROK Plc -- http://www.rokgroup.com/-- is a holding company of a
group of companies providing response maintenance, planned repairs
and refurbishment and new build services in the United Kingdom.

TARGETFOLLOW: Administrator to Include Centre Point Tower in Sale
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Hanna Sharpe at Business Sale reports that following
Targetfollow's administration, its assets are being marketed for
sale.

According to Business Sale, administrators Deloitte have kick-
started the sales process, which includes finding a buyer for some
of the company's best-known assets, including London's Centre
Point Tower.

Lloyds, Business Sale notes, forced Targetfollow into
administration over debts of GBP700 million.  The creditor has now
valued the company's assets at just GBP450 million, although its
founder, Ardeshir Naghshineh, claims the figure is more like
GBP680 million, Business Sale relates.

Potential buyers have been sent details of the Targetfollow
portfolio and a fierce bidding war is expected to kick off, with
most interest coming from private companies and private equity
groups, Business Sale says.

"The administrators are currently assessing market appetite for
the assets either individually or as a group," the report quoted
an unnamed Deloitte spokesman as saying.

Selling agents have not yet been appointed by Deloitte, Business
Sale adds.

Targetfollow is a property developer based in the United Kingdom.


ULYSSES PLC: Fitch Affirms Rating on Class E Notes at 'CCC'
-----------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed Ulysses (European Loan Conduit No. 27)
Plc's CMBS notes:

  -- GBP290m class A (XS0308745107) affirmed at 'AA'; Outlook
     revised to Stable from Negative

  -- GBP76m class B (XS0308747657) affirmed at 'BBB'; Outlook
     revised to Stable from Negative

  -- GBP48m class C (XS0308748200) affirmed at 'B'; Outlook
     revised to Stable from Negative

  -- GBP45m class D (XS0308748622) affirmed at 'CCC'; assigned a
     Recovery Rating of 'RR3'

  -- GBP11m class E (XS0308749356) affirmed at 'CCC'; assigned
     'RR6'

The affirmation of all classes of notes results from the stable
performance of the transaction over the past year, in line with
Fitch's expectations.  The agency expects this trend to continue,
which has driven the revision of the Outlooks on the class A, B
and C notes to Stable.

Servicer reporting on the loan relies upon valuations carried out
at closing (2007).  The loan has a reported A-note and whole loan
loan-to-value ratio of 65.0% and 81.1%, respectively.  This
compares to the A-note and whole loan Fitch LTV of 110% and 137%,
respectively, both unchanged since the last review (December
2009).  The Fitch LTV implies a market value decline of
approximately 40% since closing.  The loan does not include an LTV
covenant.

The securitized and whole interest coverage ratios stand at 1.24x
and 0.96x, respectively, broadly unchanged since the last review
and closing.  The sponsor guarantor, a limited partnership managed
by the loan sponsor (Beacon Capital Partners), has topped up the
difference between net rental income and interest due since
closing.  The sponsor guarantee terminates if, at any time after 1
January 2010, the projected loan ICR exceeds 1.25x.  From January
2011, the guarantee is subject to a maximum aggregate payment of
GBP5m for the remaining life of the loan.  Without an increase in
rental income, the loan would default in the event of non-payment
under the sponsor guarantee.

Fitch believes the transaction will continue to rely upon interest
top-ups by the sponsor until loan maturity.  Rental income would
need to increase by GBP1.5m in order for the whole loan coverage
to reach 1x.  However, this is considered unlikely given that the
2010 rent reviews, which affected approximately 70% of passing
rent, resulted in limited, if any, rental uplifts on all leases.
Only a small proportion of the leases are scheduled for review in
2011 (11%).

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
