AWAS AVIATION: S&P Lowers Rating to 'BB', Outlook Stable
--------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said that it has downgraded Dublin-based AWAS
Aviation Capital Ltd. to 'BB' from 'BB+'.  The outlook is stable.

"The downgrade is based on our reassessment of AWAS' competitive
position," said S&P Global credit analyst Betsy Snyder.
Following the sale of around 100 aircraft over the previous year,
AWAS' fleet comprised 218 aircraft as of May 31, 2016.  The
current size of the company's aircraft fleet places it among the
second tier of global aircraft lessors, though its market
presence is smaller than some of its competitors'.  In addition,
S&P believes that the company's owners may choose to take
advantage of the abundant levels of capital available in the
market to sell additional aircraft, further reducing AWAS' market
position.  Partly offsetting these trends is the somewhat
improved composition of AWAS' fleet due to the reduction in its
average age after the sale of older aircraft.  S&P now assess
AWAS' business risk profile as fair.

The stable outlook on AWAS reflects S&P's expectation that the
company will continue to use some of the proceeds from its asset
sales to reduce its debt.  This will cause its credit metrics to
improve modestly as its debt and interest expense decrease,
providing it with a FFO-to-debt ratio of around 10% through 2017.

S&P could lower its ratings on AWAS over the next year if its
FFO-to-debt ratio declines to 7%, which could be caused by a
weaker-than-expected operating performance or the payment of a
large dividend to its owners.

It is unlikely that S&P would raise its ratings on the company
over the next year given the uncertainty about its future
ownership.  However, S&P could raise its ratings on AWAS if its
FFO-to-debt ratio increases to 12% on a sustained basis due to a
better-than-expected operating performance and continued debt
reduction.


CAVENDISH SQUARE: S&P Affirms BB- Rating on Class C Notes
---------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings raised its credit rating on Cavendish Square
Funding PLC's class A1-N notes.  At the same time, S&P has
affirmed its ratings on the class A2, B, and C notes.

The rating actions follow S&P's analysis of the transaction using
data from the June 30, 2016 trustee report, and the application
of S&P's relevant criteria.

The transaction's post-reinvestment period began in February
2011. The class A-1N notes have amortized further since S&P's
Aug. 11, 2014 review.  Of the class A1-N notes, just EUR54.71
remains outstanding.  From S&P's analysis, it observed that there
has been a negative rating migration on the asset side resulting
in an increase in the scenario default rates (SDRs) at each
rating level.  The SDR is the minimum level of portfolio defaults
that S&P expects each CDO tranche to be able to support the
specific rating level using Standard & Poor's CDO Evaluator.
Comparing the June 2014 collateral portfolio with the June 2016
portfolio, S&P has observed that assets rated in the 'AAA' and
'AA' categories have reduced.  At the same time, assets rated in
the 'BB', 'B', and 'CCC' categories have increased.  The overall
rating on the pool has decreased to 'B+' from 'BB+' since S&P's
previous review. To determine a rating input for assets not rated
by S&P Global Ratings (for the purpose of its inclusion in CDO
Evaluator) S&P has derived ratings from other NRSRO ratings.

"We conducted our cash flow analysis to determine the break-even
default rate (BDR) for each rated class of notes at each rating
level.  The BDR represents our estimate of the maximum level of
gross defaults, based on our stress assumptions, that a tranche
can withstand and still pay interest and fully repay principal to
the noteholders.  We applied various cash flow stresses using our
standard default patterns and timings for each rating category
assumed for each class of notes.  We used the reported weighted-
average spread of 1.42%, and the weighted-average recovery rates
calculated in accordance with our 2012 criteria for
collateralized debt obligations (CDOs) of pooled structured
finance assets.  The weighted-average spread (WAS) is also lower
than at our previous review (1.42% now compared with 1.56% in
August 2014).  Over the same period, the weighted average
recovery rates (WARR) at each rating levels were also 2%-3% lower
at each rating category.  The WAS and WARR are one of the key
components that determine the required credit enhancement at each
rating level in our cash flow analysis," S&P said.

S&P's analysis indicates that the available credit enhancement
for the class A1-N notes in this transaction is commensurate with
a higher rating than that currently assigned.  S&P has therefore
raised to 'A- (sf)' from 'BBB+ (sf)' its rating on the class A1-N
notes.

S&P's credit and cash flow analysis indicates that the available
credit enhancement for the class A2, B, and C notes is
commensurate with their currently assigned ratings.  S&P has
therefore affirmed its ratings on these classes of notes.

The application of the largest obligor default or largest
industry test did not constrain S&P's ratings on any of the
classes of notes.

Cavendish Square Funding is a cash flow mezzanine structured
finance CDO of a portfolio that comprises predominantly mortgage-
backed securities.  The transaction closed in February 2006 and
AE Global Investment Solutions Ltd. manages it.

DECO 10: Fitch Lowers Rating on Class D Notes to 'Dsf'
------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has taken multiple rating actions on DECO 10 - Pan
Europe 4 p.l.c.'s (DECO 10) as:

  EUR14.3 mil. class A2 (XS0276271375): 'BB+sf' placed on Rating
   Watch Positive (RWP)
  EUR31.9 mil. class B (XS0276272001): 'B+sf'' placed on RWP
  EUR31.9 mil. class C (XS0276273074) affirmed at 'CCsf';
   Recovery Estimate (RE) 65%
  EUR18.9 mil. class D (XS0276273660) downgraded to 'Dsf' from
   'Csf'; RE 0%

DECO 10 closed in December 2006 and was originally the
securitization of 14 commercial real estate loans, backed by
collateral located in Germany, Switzerland and the Netherlands.
Twelve loans were solely originated by Deutsche Bank
(DB, A-/Stable) whereas the other two were syndications with
Citibank, N.A. and Landesbank Hessen-Thueringen Girozentrale
(both A+/Stable).  To date, four loans remain.

                         KEY RATING DRIVERS

The RWP reflects the possibility of a lease extension with sole
tenant Nike for the campus property securing the EUR42.2 mil.
Rubicon Nike loan.  This, together with the repayment of the
EUR9 mil. ECP MF Portfolio loan, would materially deleverage the
senior tranches.  Fitch aims to resolve the RWP after the October
interest payment date, assuming progress has been made.  The
class C notes have been affirmed as default remains probable.
Finally, the downgrade of the class D notes reflects a write-down
of principal.

Since the last rating action in August 2015, three loan workouts
have been completed while a fourth loan remains in its final loss
determination.  Two loans exceeded expectations by either
repaying in full (EDEKA Retail) or achieving more recoveries than
expected by Fitch (Lubeck, with further late recoveries possible
if escrowed amounts are released after final wind-up costs).  The
other two (Toom DYI and DFK Portfolio) suffered losses broadly in
line with Fitch's expectations.

Significant progress was also made in the workout of the
defaulted Treveria II loan of which 50% is securitized in DECO
10.  A bulk sale of 19 assets was made to a single buyer (with
staggered payments, the last of which (EUR18.9 mil.) is due by
April 2017). While the portfolio sale achieved approximately 15%
lower recoveries than Fitch expected, this is mitigated by a
reduction in execution risk in light of time constraints.

Both the EUR42.2 mil. Rubicon Nike and EUR9 mil. ECP MF loans
have been extended until August and October 2016, respectively,
to allow for orderly refinancing of the loans or the sale of the
collateral.  The Rubicon Nike borrower has obtained a term sheet
from a financial institution -- a condition for the short-term
extension -- while a signed letter of intent from Nike is
reportedly still being pursued.  It is probable that a lease
renewal is required for a full repayment of the Rubicon Nike
loan. Fitch expects the ECP MF loan to repay in full, given its
solid performance and small size.

                        RATING SENSITIVITIES

Fitch expects to resolve the RWP after the October 2016 interest
payment date.  A material lease extension by Nike or repayment of
ECP MF may result in an upgrade of the class A2 and B notes,
although not above the 'Asf' category given asset quality risks
for Treveria II and the approach of bond maturity in 2019.


HARVEST CLO VII: S&P Affirms BB Rating on Class E Notes
-------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings affirmed its credit ratings on Harvest CLO VII
Ltd.'s class A, B, C, D, and E notes.

The affirmations follow S&P's assessment of the transaction's
performance using data from the May 31, 2016, trustee report and
the application of its relevant criteria.

"We subjected the capital structure to a cash flow analysis to
determine the break-even default rate (BDR) for each rated class
at each rating level.  The BDR represents our estimate of the
maximum level of gross defaults, based on our stress assumptions,
that a tranche can withstand and still fully repay the
noteholders.  In our analysis, we used the portfolio balance that
we consider to be performing, the current spreads as reported by
the trustee report, and the recovery rates calculated in line
with our corporate collateralized debt obligation (CDO) criteria.
We applied various cash flow stresses, using our standard default
patterns, in conjunction with different interest rate stress
scenarios.  We used the reported portfolio balance that we
considered to be performing, the principal cash balance, the
weighted-average spread, and the weighted-average recovery rates
that we considered to be appropriate," S&P said.

Since S&P's Jan. 17, 2014 review, following the transaction's
effective date, the notes have remained fully outstanding as the
transaction remains in its reinvestment period and the collateral
manager reinvests cash funds received.  The issuer's par balance
is EUR302.2 million, indicating EUR2.2 million of additional
collateral that has been built above the target par amount of
EUR300 million.  As a result, the available credit enhancement
for the rated notes has increased marginally since closing.  The
asset portfolio remains well diversified, with 119 distinct
obligors spread over 25 distinct industries and 20 distinct
countries.

Over the same period, the weighted-average spread has increased
marginally to 4.83% from 4.50%, and remains well above the
covenant of 4.35%.  The portfolio's weighted-average life has
decreased as the transaction matures, falling to 4.8 years from
6.4 years. As a result of the increased credit enhancement, the
overcollateralization (OC) test ratios have also improved with
the junior OC test, relating to the class E notes, increasing to
112.9% from 112.4%, well above the trigger level of 107.1%.

S&P incorporated various cash flow stress scenarios, using
various default patterns, levels, and timings for each liability
rating category, in conjunction with different interest rate
stress scenarios.  To help assess the collateral pool's credit
risk, S&P used CDO Evaluator 6.3 to generate scenario default
rates (SDRs; the modeled level of gross defaults that CDO
Evaluator estimates for every CDO liability rating) at each
rating level.  S&P then compared these SDRs with their respective
BDRs.

While the transaction remains in its reinvestment period, the
collateral manager can alter the asset portfolio through sales
and purchases.  Negative selection in new assets is mitigated by
S&P's CDO Monitor test, which ensures that any amended portfolio
is of sufficient quality to maintain the ratings on the notes
assigned at closing.  As a result, in S&P's analysis, it
recognizes that during the reinvestment period the portfolio is
subject to further change, which may constrain the ratings on the
notes to the original ratings assigned.

Taking into account S&P's observations outlined above, it
considers the available credit enhancement for all classes of
notes to be commensurate with the ratings currently assigned.
S&P has therefore affirmed its ratings on the class A, B, C, D,
and E notes.

QUIRINUS PLC: Fitch Affirms 'Dsf' Rating on Class F Loan
--------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has affirmed Quirinus (European Loan Conduit
No. 23) Plc, as:

  EUR54.2 mil. Class A (XS0259561925) affirmed at 'BBsf'; Outlook
   revised to Stable from Negative
  EUR4.7 mil. Class B (XS0259562576) affirmed at 'BB-sf'; Outlook
   Negative
  EUR5.7 mil. Class C (XS0259562907) affirmed at 'Bsf'; Outlook
   Negative
  EUR7.7 mil. Class D (XS0259563202) affirmed at 'CCCsf';
   Recovery Estimate (RE) revised to 50% from 60%
  EUR8.8 mil. Class E (XS0259563624) affirmed at 'CCsf'; RE
   revised to 0% from 45%
  EUR1.8 mil. Class F (XS0259564192 affirmed at 'Dsf'; RE revised
   to 0% from 50%

Quirinus is a securitization of originally 10 commercial mortgage
loans made by Morgan Stanley for EUR700.8 mil.  Nine loans have
been resolved since the deal closed in 2005, with all but two
repaying in full.  The Fairacre Retail Loan and the H&B3 loans
incurred final losses represented by an aggregate write-down of
EUR5.1 mil. on the class F notes.

                         KEY RATING DRIVERS

The affirmation reflects the broadly stable performance of the
collateral securing the remaining loan (Eurocastle), despite its
inability to refinance at maturity.  This failure to pay switched
principal pay to a fully sequential structure in time for the
resolution of H&B3, which is reflected by the revision of the
Outlook on the class A notes (which would otherwise have received
80% of the proceeds).  This switch diverted funds that would
otherwise have flowed to junior notes, and hence explains the
downwards revision of the Recovery Estimates.

For the class B and C notes, the Negative Outlooks reflect
uncertainty associated with the resolution of Eurocastle, given
the borrower did not refinance its portfolio in time for
maturity. The EUR82.7 mil. loan is secured by a diverse portfolio
of 41 retail warehouses throughout Germany, with several sites
housing dominant grocers in remote areas.  Vacancy has increased
to 9.5% from 5% at the time of the last rating action, although
lease renewals throughout the year led to an increase in the
weighted average lease term from 3.61 to 4.43 years.

All excess rental income is being reserved by the servicer
(currently standing at EUR2.16 mil.), allowing the notes to
benefit from the low interest rate environment.  Fitch estimates
the sustainable 'Bsf' LTV to be approximately 121%, although
current market conditions should support higher recoveries.

The defaulted H&B3 loan was resolved in December 2015 following a
sale of the five retail warehouses.  This achieved a gross sales
price of EUR17.8 mil., which with reserved rental income
included, distributed EUR18.34 mil. to the class A notes on the
August 2016 IPD.  The residual of the EUR23.09 mil. loan was
written off from the defaulted class F notes, leaving only EUR1.8
mil. outstanding.

                        RATING SENSITIVITIES

A quick resolution could see Eurocastle benefiting from the
current positive sentiment for German retail warehouse
portfolios, as illustrated by prime yields in the sector being
close to all-time lows.  A protracted workout could run against
time constraints presented by bond maturity in 2019, and lead to
downgrades.

Fitch estimates 'Bsf' sustainable value to be approximately
EUR68.5 mil.

ELEX ALPHA: S&P Affirms CCC+ Rating on Class E Notes
----------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings raised its credit ratings on eleX Alpha S.A.'s
class B, C, and D notes.  At the same time, S&P has affirmed its
ratings on the class A-1 and E notes.

The rating actions follow S&P's assessment of the transaction's
performance, using data from the June 2016 trustee report, and
S&P's credit and cash flow analysis.  S&P has taken into account
recent developments in the transaction and has applied its
current counterparty criteria.

Since S&P's March 11, 2015 review, it has observed an increase in
the available credit enhancement for all classes of notes, except
for the class E notes.

The transaction's reinvestment period ended in March 2013 and the
class A-1 notes remain GBP4.43 million outstanding.

Since S&P's previous review, the weighted-average spread has
decreased to 3.66% from 3.98% of the portfolio, and the
portfolio's credit quality has improved overall.  The balance of
assets that S&P considers as defaulted (rated 'CC', 'C','SD'
[selective default], or 'D') has also decreased to EUR1.4 million
from EUR6.4 million as of S&P's previous review.

S&P has subjected the capital structure to its cash flow
analysis, based on the methodology and assumptions outlined in
S&P's collateralized debt obligation (CDO) criteria, to determine
the break-even default rate for each rated class of notes.

S&P used the reported portfolio balance that it considered to be
performing, the principal cash balance, the current weighted-
average spread, and the weighted-average recovery rates that S&P
considered to be appropriate.  S&P incorporated various cash flow
stress scenarios using various default patterns, levels, and
timings for each liability rating category, in conjunction with
different interest rate stress scenarios.

Under S&P's current counterparty criteria, its long-term issuer
credit rating on Barclays Bank PLC (A-/Negative/A-2) as the swap
counterparty and option provider, constrains S&P's ratings on the
class A-1, B, and C notes at 'A (sf)'.  S&P has therefore
stressed non-euro-denominated assets in 'A+' scenarios and above,
in accordance with S&P's current counterparty criteria.

S&P's credit and cash flow analysis indicates that the available
credit enhancement for the class B, C, and D notes is now
commensurate with higher ratings than those currently assigned.
S&P has therefore raised its ratings on these classes of notes.

S&P's analysis also indicates that the available credit
enhancement for the class A-1 and E notes is commensurate with
S&P's currently assigned ratings.  S&P has therefore affirmed its
ratings on these classes of notes.  S&P's rating on the class E
notes is also constrained, at the current rating level, by the
application of the largest obligor default test.  The largest
obligor default test is a supplemental stress test that S&P
introduced in its 2009 criteria update for corporate CDOs.

CAIRN CLO II: S&P Raises Rating on Class E Notes to B+
------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings raised its credit ratings on Cairn CLO II
B.V.'s class B, C, D, and E notes.  At the same time, S&P has
affirmed its ratings on the class A-1S and A-1R notes.

The rating actions follow S&P's assessment of the transaction's
performance using data from the June 2016 trustee report.

S&P subjected the capital structure to a cash flow analysis to
determine the break-even default rate for each rated class of
notes at each rating level.  In S&P's analysis, it used the
reported portfolio balance that it considers to be performing,
the current weighted-average spread, and the weighted-average
recovery rates that S&P considered appropriate.  S&P incorporated
various cash flow stress scenarios using alternative default
patterns, in conjunction with different interest and currency
stress scenarios.

From S&P's analysis, it has observed that the asset-liability
mismatch for non-euro-denominated assets has decreased.  S&P has
also observed that overcollateralization test results, the credit
quality of the pool, and credit enhancement have improved since
S&P's previous review on April 29, 2015.  In addition, S&P has
noted a fall in the weighted-average spread to 408 basis points
(bps) from 415 bps over the same period.

This transaction features multicurrency revolving liabilities
intended to match the non-euro-denominated assets and
multicurrency revolving loans purchased by the issuer.  Currency
mismatches are hedged with Bermuda-style currency call options.

S&P noted that the principal was allocated and paid to the class
B noteholders before paying the class A-1 notes, which are the
senior-most classes of notes.

S&P has received confirmation from the manager that the
application of principal proceeds going forward will continue as
it is described in the transaction documents (the class A-1 notes
will pay all available principal proceeds until fully paid down
to zero before any further principal is distributed to the class
B notes).

In S&P's opinion, the available credit enhancement for the class
A-1S and A-1R notes is commensurate with the currently assigned
ratings, taking into account the results of our credit and cash
flow analysis and the application of S&P's current counterparty
criteria.  S&P has therefore affirmed its ratings on the class A-
1S and A-1R notes.

S&P's credit and cash flow analysis of the class B, C, D, and E
notes indicates that the available credit enhancement is
commensurate with higher ratings than those currently assigned.
S&P has therefore raised its ratings on these classes of notes.

HIGHLANDER EURO: S&P Raises Rating on Class D Notes to B-
---------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings Services took various credit rating actions on
Highlander Euro CDO B.V.'s (primary issuer; issued the class A-1,
A-2, B, C, and D notes) notes and Highlander Euro CDO (Cayman)
Ltd.'s (secondary issuer; issued the class E notes) notes
(collectively, Highlander Euro CDO).

Specifically, S&P has:

   -- Raised its ratings on the class B, C, and D notes; and
   -- Affirmed its rating on the class E notes.

The rating actions follow S&P's credit and cash flow analysis of
the transaction using data from the June 20, 2016 trustee report
and the application of S&P's relevant criteria.

"We conducted our cash flow analysis to determine the break-even
default rate (BDR) for each rated class of notes.  The BDR
represents our estimate of the maximum level of gross defaults,
based on our stress assumptions, that a tranche can withstand and
still pay interest and fully repay principal to the noteholders.
We used the portfolio balance that we consider to be performing,
the reported weighted-average spread/coupon, and the weighted-
average recovery rates that we considered to be appropriate.  We
incorporated various cash flow stress scenarios using our
standard default patterns, levels, and timings for each rating
category assumed for each class of notes, combined with different
interest stress scenarios as outlined in our corporate
collateralized debt obligation (CDO) criteria," S&P said.

The class A-1 and A-2 notes have fully repaid since S&P's
previous review.  This has increased the available credit
enhancement for all classes of notes.  The proportion of assets
rated 'CCC+', 'CCC', or 'CCC-' as a percentage of the performing
portfolio has reduced to 1.6% from 2.2% since S&P's previous
review.

S&P's cash flow analysis results indicate that the available
credit enhancement for the class B, C, and D notes is
commensurate with higher ratings than currently assigned.  S&P
has therefore raised to 'AAA (sf)' from 'AA+ (sf)' its rating on
the class B notes, to 'A+ (sf)' from 'BB+ (sf)' its rating on the
class C notes, and to 'B- (sf)' from 'CCC- (sf)' S&P's rating on
the class D notes.  The largest obligor test constrains S&P's
rating on the class C and D notes.  The largest obligor test
measures the risk of several of the largest obligors within the
portfolio defaulting simultaneously.  As a result of structural
deleveraging, the underlying portfolio is more concentrated now
with 22 performing obligors, compared with 35 at our previous
review.  The largest performing obligor exposure is at 12.0%,
while the average performing obligor exposure is 4.6%.

S&P has affirmed its 'CCC- (sf)' rating on the class E notes as
the notes continue to be undercollateralized.  The class E
overcollateralization test is failing and as a result, the
interest payments on these notes are being deferred pursuant to
the transaction's payment waterfall.

(CLO) transaction that securitizes loans to primarily

JUBILEE CDO V: S&P Affirms BB+ Ratings on 2 Note Classes
--------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings raised its credit rating on Jubilee CDO V
B.V.'s class B notes.  At the same time, S&P has affirmed its
ratings on the class A-1B, A-2, C, D-1, and D-2 notes.

The rating actions follow S&P's review of the transaction's
performance based on the July 2016 investor report.  S&P
performed a credit and cash flow analysis and assessed the
support that each participant provides to the transaction by
applying S&P's current counterparty criteria.

In performing S&P's analysis, it excluded one position, an
Obligations Remboursables en Actions (ORA) bond, based on S&P's
analysis of its terms and conditions.  Exclusion of this position
did not materially affect the results of S&P's analysis.  In
addition, S&P has classified as defaulted obligations to Truvo
N.V. and its operating subsidiary Talon PIKco N.V., following the
withdrawal of S&P's ratings on this obligor.

S&P's review of the transaction highlighted that, although the
portfolio has amortized, the available credit enhancement for the
class B, C, D-1, and D-2 notes has fallen since S&P's previous
review.  S&P believes the primary driver for this fall is the
exclusion of the ORA bond and treatment of Truvo and Talon PIKco,
as noted above.

S&P subjected the capital structure to a cash flow analysis to
determine the break-even default rate for each rated class of
notes at each rating level.  In S&P's analysis, it used the
reported portfolio balance that it considered to be performing
(EUR174 million), the weighted-average spread, and the weighted-
average recovery rates for the performing portfolio.  S&P applied
various cash flow stress scenarios, using its standard default
patterns in conjunction with different interest stress scenarios
for each liability rating category.

Non-euro-denominated assets comprise 10% of the performing
collateral balance, which are hedged by a cross-currency swap
agreement.  In S&P's opinion, the documentation for the cross-
currency swap agreement does not fully reflect S&P's current
counterparty criteria.  In S&P's cash flow analysis, for ratings
above the issuer credit rating plus one notch on the swap
counterparty, it considered scenarios where the counterparty does
not perform, and where the transaction is therefore exposed to
changes in currency rates.

The results of S&P's credit and cash flow analysis indicate that
the available credit enhancement for the class B notes is
commensurate with a higher rating than currently assigned.  S&P
has therefore raised to 'AAA (sf)' from 'AA+ (sf)' its rating on
this class of notes.

For all other classes of notes, the results of S&P's credit and
cash flow analysis indicate that the available credit enhancement
is commensurate with the currently assigned ratings.  S&P has
therefore affirmed its ratings on the class A-1B, A-2, C, D-1,
and D-2 notes.

Jubilee CDO V is a cash flow CLO transaction that securitizes
loans granted to primarily European speculative-grade corporate
firms.  Alcentra Ltd. manages the transaction.  The transaction
closed in June 2005 and entered its amortization period in August
2011.

OLTCHIM SA: Creditors Agree to Extend Reorganization Period
-----------------------------------------------------------
SeeNews reports that the creditors of Romanian insolvent
chemicals producer Oltchim agreed on Aug. 29 to extend the
company's reorganization period by one year.

According to SeeNews, Oltchim said in a statement filed with the
Bucharest Stock Exchange, BVB, the request to extend the
reorganization period was made by the company's judicial
administrators consortium, Rominsolv and BDO Business
Restructuring.

Oltchim on Aug. 24 launched an asset sale auction process for all
or part of its assets grouped into nine bundles, and that expects
to select investors by the end of 2016, SeeNews relates.

The deadline for the expression of interest is Sept. 30, SeeNews
discloses.

Oltchim is under insolvency procedure since 2013, SeeNews notes.

ER-TELECOM: S&P Revises Outlook to Negative & Affirms 'B+' CCR
--------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings said that it had revised its outlook on ER-
Telecom to negative from stable and affirmed the 'B+' long-term
corporate credit rating.  At the same time, S&P also affirmed the
'ruA' Russia national scale rating on ER-Telecom.

The outlook revision reflects S&P's view that ER-Telecom will
continue to invest in growth, including through mergers and
acquisitions (M&A), which will result in negative free operating
cash flows.  S&P now expects that ER-Telecom's adjusted leverage
will exceed 3.0x (compared with 2.1x in 2015) and remain close to
or below 3.5x in 2016-2017.

That said, S&P believes that ER-Telecom has very limited headroom
to further increase its leverage through debt-financed
acquisitions or paying out significant dividends because of the
covenant on ER-Telecom's Russian ruble (RUB) 27 billion (about
US$417 million) facility from VTB Bank.  The facility remains the
key source of ER-Telecom's financing for further growth. That
said, S&P also factors in that in July 2016 ER-Telecom
successfully placed a RUB3 billion three-year domestic bond.

S&P also takes into account that availability on the remaining
balance under the RUB27 billion facility from VTB Bank has been
very recently extended until year-end 2016.  This mitigates the
short-term liquidity pressure resulting from ER-Telecom's high
expansionary spending.

S&P's rating on ER-Telecom factors in its position as Russia's
second-largest broadband operator after the incumbent Rostelecom,
offering internet, Pay-TV, and fixed telephony services under the
DOM.RU brand.  This is balanced by exposure to the competitive
and saturated Russian broadband market.

In previous years, ER-Telecom demonstrated very robust growth,
both organic and via acquisitions, with a strong 15.8% revenue
increase in 2014, slowing to 0.5% in 2015, bringing revenues to
RUB22.2 billion.  S&P's assessment of ER-Telecom's business risk
profile is supported by availability of its own backbone fiber
network and by its presence in 56 Russian cities with a total
population exceeding 30 million people and 12 million households.
According to the management, the company has a 26% share of the
local internet access market and 32% share of the local cable TV
market by revenues.

S&P also takes into account the company's recent entrance into
the Moscow business-to-business (B2B) market and strengthening of
its footprint in other Russian cities after the equity swap-based
acquisition of OOO Prestige-Internet (operating under the Enforta
brand), which was completed in late May 2016.  Enforta is a
Russian cable operator with 88 offices in 63 Russian regions and
with a platform covering 566 Russian towns.  Enforta's Russian
market share is estimated at 3%, and it has a strong value
proposition in B2B and business-to-government segments.

These factors are balanced by the high country risks of operating
in Russia, where 100% of ER-Telecom's assets are concentrated.
S&P notes that Russia is experiencing a general economic
slowdown, with real GDP growth projected at negative 1.3% in
2016, returning to 1% growth in 2017.  S&P also factors in the
saturated and very competitive broadband market, where the
incumbent Rostelecom has a dominant 38% market share in business-
to-customers and 34% in B2B.

In S&P's view, fierce competition will continue to put pressure
on ER-Telecom's margins.  ER-Telecom's adjusted EBITDA margin
fell to around 30% in the first half of 2016 from 34.6% in 2015
and 40.6% in 2014.  S&P expects that it will be below 30% in
full-year 2016, as a result of price pressure and the acquisition
of Enforta, whose margins have historically been lower than ER-
Telecom's, at around 24%.  S&P expects that margins will continue
to be pressured until 2017, given the company's acquisitive
growth trend, which S&P considers would dilute margins.

S&P expects margins to gradually rebound in 2018-2019 on the back
of synergies management expects to materialize after integration
of the acquisitions, including overhead savings and lower network
costs, as Enforta will be using ER-Telecom's fiber infrastructure
where technically feasible.

S&P's negative outlook on ER-Telecom reflects S&P's view that its
leverage will exceed 3.0x in 2016-2017.

S&P would downgrade ER-Telecom if its adjusted leverage exceeds
3.5x, driven in particular by M&A activity or dividend payout.
S&P will also consider a downgrade if ER-Telecom's liquidity
deteriorates.

S&P may revise the outlook to stable and affirm the rating if ER-
Telecom sustains its adjusted leverage ratio below 3.0x, combined
with a solid liquidity position.

STARI JASEN: Put Up for Sale, September 30 Public Bidding Set
-------------------------------------------------------------
SeeNews reports that Serbia's bankruptcy supervision agency said
bankrupt furniture maker Stari Jasen will be put up for sale at a
starting price of RSD30.9 million (US$280,850/EUR251,400).

The agency said the assets on sale include production facilities,
offices and a warehouse, SeeNews relates.

The public bidding will be held on Sept. 30, at the Commercial
Court of Kraljevo, SeeNews discloses.

According to SeeNews, to participate in the tender, potential
buyers should pay a deposit equivalent to half the starting
price, or some RSD12.4 million.

Stari Jasen was one of the most successful furniture factories in
former Yugoslavia but after two failed privatization attempts in
2002 and 2005 it collapsed into insolvency, SeeNews relays.

Stari Jasen is based in the southern city of Kraljevo.

TURKIYE IS BANKASI: Fitch Affirms BB+ Subordinated Debt Rating
--------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has revised the Outlooks to Negative from Stable on
18 Turkish banks, while affirming their Issuer Default Ratings
(IDRs).

In addition, the ratings of those banks' financial subsidiaries,
which are driven by institutional support, are affirmed and their
Outlooks are revised to Negative.

KEY RATING DRIVERS AND SENSITIVITIES - IDRS, SUPPORT RATINGS,
SUPPORT RATINGS FLOORS (SRF), DEBT RATINGS

The revision of the Outlooks on the Long-Term IDRs of T.C. Ziraat
Bankasi A.S. (Ziraat), Turkiye Halk Bankasi A.S. (Halk), Turkiye
Vakiflar Bankasi T.A.O. (Vakif), Istanbul Takas ve Saklama
Bankasi A.S. - (Takasbank), Turkiye Sinai Kalkinma Bankasi
A.S.(TSKB), Turkiye Kalkinma Bankasi A.S. (TKB) and Turkiye
Ihracat Kredi Bankasi AS (Turk Eximbank), reflects the increased
likelihood of a deterioration in the government's ability to
provide support given the Negative Outlook on the sovereign
rating.

They also reflect the potential for those banks whose Viability
Ratings (VR) are at the same level as the sovereign, to be
downgraded due to the effects of a worsening operating
environment.  In the case of Takasbank, whose IDR is driven by
its standalone creditworthiness, the Negative Outlook reflects
its exposure purely to Turkish bank counterparty risk in the
context of the deteriorating operating environment.

Consequently, a downgrade of the Turkish sovereign would likely
lead to a downgrade of the Long-Term IDRs of all seven entities.
In the event that their Long-Term IDRs are downgraded Fitch would
also expect to downgrade the banks' Short-Term IDRs.

The IDRs of the seven entities are underpinned by their 'BBB-'
Support Rating Floors, reflecting Fitch's view of a high
probability of support from the Turkish authorities in case of
need.  The SRFs of Ziraat, Halk and Vakif reflect their (i) state
ownership (ii) policy roles (Ziraat, Halk) (iii) systemic
importance, and (iv) significant state-related deposits.

Takasbank's SRF refects the exceptionally high systemic
importance of the bank given its role as the country's clearing
centre and, as a result of its interconnectedness with the
financial sector, and the potential contagion risk in the event
of a default.

The SRFs of TSKB, TKB and Turk Eximbank reflect (i) the banks'
policy roles (ii) majority state ownership (TKB and Turk
Eximbank) and (iii) government support of the banks' funding.
Fitch has not assigned VRs to these banks as a result of their
policy roles and funding profiles.

Akbank T.A.S.'s (Akbank) and Turkiye Is Bankasi A.S.'s (Isbank)
IDRs are driven by their VRs.  Their lower SRFs of 'BB-' reflect
only a moderate probability of support from the Turkish state on
account of their ownership structures while also taking into
account the banks' systemic importance and market shares.

The revised Outlooks on the 'BBB' support-driven Long-Term IDRs
of the foreign-owned commercial banks, Turkiye Garanti Bankasi
A.S. (Garanti), ING Bank A.S. (INGBT), Turk Ekonomi Bankasi A.S.
(TEB), Finansbank A.S. (Finansbank), ICBC Turkey Bank A.S. (ICBC
Turkey), Burgan Bank A.S. (Burgan), Alternatifbank A.S. (ABank),
and the foreign-owned participation banks Kuveyt Turk Katilim
Bankasi A.S (Kuveyt Turk) and Turkiye Finans Katilim Bankasi AS
(Turkiye Finans), all of which are at the level of Turkey's
Country Ceiling, reflect the increased likelihood of a downgrade
of the Country Ceiling following the change in the sovereign's
Outlook.

Turkey's Country Ceiling reflects transfer and convertibility
risks and limits the extent to which support from foreign
shareholders can be factored into the banks' Long-Term IDRs.  At
the same time their Local Currency IDRs, whose Outlooks have also
been revised to Negative, continue to take into account Turkish
country risks.

The IDRs, Support Ratings and debt ratings of all nine foreign-
owned banks reflect Fitch's view that their parents continue to
have a strong propensity to provide support, notwithstanding the
change in sovereign outlook, given the subsidiaries' ownership
structures, integration and, in some cases, common branding.

KEY RATING DRIVERS AND SENSITIVITIES - SUBSIDIARIES OF FOREIGN
OWNED BANKS

The IDRs of the Garanti Faktoring A.S., Garanti Finansal Kiralama
A.S. (Garanti Leasing), Finans Finansal Kiralama A.S. (Finans
Leasing), Alternatif Finansal Kiralama AS (ALease) are equalised
with those of their respective parents, reflecting their
strategic importance to and integration with their respective
groups.

Consequently, the revision of their Outlooks to Negative from
Stable mirrors the rating action on their parents and indicates a
possible weakening of their parents' ability to support them.
The ratings of these entities are sensitive to changes in the
ratings of their respective parent banks.

             KEY RATING DRIVERS AND SENSITIVITIES - VRS

The 'bbb-' VRs of Ziraat, Halk, Vakif, Garanti, TEB and
Finansbank are unaffected as a result of the change in sovereign
outlook, while the VRs of Takasbank, Akbank and Isbank, which
drive the banks' IDRs, are affirmed.

The operating environment and Turkish sovereign rating remain key
sensitivities for all banks' VRs given their exposure to the
domestic economy and exposure to investor sentiment as evidenced
by the banks' high level of foreign currency wholesale funding.
Consequently, a sovereign downgrade would likely have a negative
impact on the banks' standalone credit profiles and lead to a
downgrade of their VRs.  Stabilization of the sovereign's credit
profile and the country's economic prospects would reduce
downward pressure on the banks' VRs.

The VRs of INGBT, ICBC Turkey, Burgan, ABank, Kuveyt Turk and
Turkiye Finans are also unaffected by the sovereign outlook
action.  A weaker operating environment may have less direct or
immediate impact on those banks' VRs as they are currently below
the level of the sovereign rating and therefore have a somewhat
greater tolerance to modest operating environment deterioration.

KEY RATING DRIVERS AND SENSITIVITIES - SUBSIDIARIES OF
DOMESTICALLY PRIVATELY OWNED BANKS

The IDRs of the subsidiaries of Akbank and Isbank, AK Finansal
Kiralama A.S. (Aklease), Ak Yatirim Menkul Degerler AS (Ak
Investment), Akbank AG, Is Faktoring A.S., Is Finansal Kiralama
A.S. (Is Leasing) and Is Yatirim Menkul Degerler A.S. (Is
Investment) are equalized with those of their respective parents,
reflecting their strategic importance to and integration with
their respective groups.

Consequently, the revision of their Outlooks to Negative from
Stable mirrors the rating action on their parents and indicates a
possible weakening of their parents' ability to support them.
The ratings of these entities are sensitive to changes in the
ratings of their respective parent banks.

KEY RATING DRIVERS AND SENSITIVITIES - SUBORDINATED DEBT RATINGS

Vakif's and Isbank's subordinated debt ratings are notched once
off their 'bbb-' VRs, reflecting Fitch's view that government
support will not necessarily be extended to subordinated
creditors.  As such, the ratings are sensitive to changes in the
bank's VRs.

ABank's and Kuveyt Turk's subordinated debt ratings are notched
down from their Long-Term Foreign Currency IDRs and as such are
sensitive to changes in the banks' support-driven ratings,
reflecting Fitch's view that support from their respective
institutional owners would extend to subordinated creditors.

The ratings of the notes of all four banks are also sensitive to
a change in notching due to a change in Fitch's assessment of the
probability of the notes' non-performance risk relative to the
risk captured in their respective anchor ratings, or in its
assessment of loss severity in case of non-performance.

     KEY RATING DRIVERS AND SENSITIVITIES - NATIONAL RATINGS

The affirmation of all banks' and subsidiaries National Ratings
with Stable Outlooks reflects Fitch's view that the
creditworthiness of the banks relative to each other and to other
Turkish banks has not changed significantly as a result of the
sovereign Outlook change.

Employees at the company were sent letters from administrators,
Skelmersdale-based Refresh Recovery, on Aug. 23, Liverpool Echo
relates.

The letters informed the company's 16 employees that Bay TV is in
administration but will continue operating while the situation is
assessed, Liverpool Echo discloses.

It follows a cash injection from another operator, Made TV
earlier this year, into the Toxteth-based broadcaster, Liverpool
Echo recounts.

Chris Johnson, chief executive of Bay TV, confirmed the company
had been placed into administration, Liverpool Echo relays.

"We are working hard with the administrators to keep the business
operating as a going concern," Liverpool Echo quotes Mr. Johnson
as saying.

"I am confident that the station will remain on air -- it's still
on air and will remain on air.

"We're looking to sell it as a going concern."

According to Liverpool Echo, administrator Gordon Craig wrote to
Bay TV staff saying: "It is my intention for the time being, as
administrator of the company, to permit the company to continue
to trade whilst I assess the situation."


CATALYST HEALTHCARE: S&P Affirms 'BB+' Rating on GBP175M EIB Loan
-----------------------------------------------------------------
S&P Global Ratings affirmed its 'BB+' long-term issue ratings on
the GBP175 million senior secured European Investment Bank (EIB)
loan due Sept. 30, 2037, and GBP218.05 million variable-rate
bonds due Sept. 30, 2040, issued by Catalyst Healthcare
(Manchester) Financing PLC (ProjectCo).  At the same time, S&P
revised the outlook on this debt to stable from negative.

The recovery rating on the senior secured debt is unchanged at
'2'.  S&P's recovery expectations are in the lower half of the
70%-90% range, although there has been limited experience
regarding default or loss in this sector to date.

The rating action reflects the settlement agreement reached by
Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust,
construction contractor Lend Lease Construction (EMEA) Ltd., and
ProjectCo in relation to the long-standing dispute concerning
whether a hospital's fire compartmentation was in breach of
contractual documentation.  In S&P's opinion, the relationship
between the parties has been re-established, resulting in a
collaborative working environment developing between the Trust
and ProjectCo.  In April 2016, the parties to the contract signed
a settlement deed that was approved by the funders in June 2016.
During the negotiations, the Trust did not apply any further
deductions on ProjectCo and remitted full unitary payment.  Based
on the settlement agreement, S&P understands that:

   -- All the deductions in relation to firestopping defects
      accrued during the dispute period have been waived.
      ProjectCo will receive full payments, subject to a minimal
      reduction in the annual unitary payment for the rest of the
      concession.  In S&P's opinion, this deduction does not
      materially affect the project's operating cash flow.  The
      Trust will assume all responsibility for pending remedial
      works relating to the firestopping defects, which is likely
      to be completed in 18-24 months.

"Under our base-case scenario, we expect the project to
demonstrate stable operational performance, with minimal
deductions under its facility management services going forward.
The operation phase stand-alone credit profile (SACP) remains at
'bb+', even though we revised our preliminary operations phase
SACP to 'bbb-' from 'bb+'.  The change reflected that we had
updated our base-case minimum annual debt service coverage ratio
(ADSCR) to 1.20x from 1.17x and our average ADSCR to 1.28x from
1.26x.  Our base-case assumptions include an annual unitary
charge (UC) of GBP41.8 million, a total life cycle profile of
GBP158 million and annual hard and soft facilities management
(FM) costs of GBP11 million (all in real values and in line with
ProjectCo's assumptions).  We assume that the Retail Price Index
(RPI) will be 1.8% for 2016, 3% for 2017, 2.5% for 2018, and
between 2.6% and 3.7% thereafter (3.0% after 2026)," S&P said.

"In addition, the transaction is resilient to our downside
scenario, with ADSCRs always above 1.0x.  Under our downside
case, we increase FM and life cycle costs by 10% and management
costs by 5%.  We also lower RPI by 1% compared with our base case
for the first five years.  In addition, we assume that 35% of the
largest semiannual life cycle payments will be paid two years
earlier than in our base case.  Compared with closest peers, this
project includes a significant back-ended debt amortization,
causing us to adjust the rating down by one notch," S&P noted.

The stable outlook on the issue ratings reflects S&P's forecast
that the project will keep delivering steady operational
performance, that postsettlement defects will be rectified within
the agreed timetable, and the parties will aim to maintain a
collaborative working relationship.  S&P also projects that the
minimum ADSCR, calculated in accordance with its criteria, will
remain above 1.20x.

S&P could raise the issue rating by one or more notches following
a period of greater operational stability, in which the Trust and
ProjectCo establish a more constructive relationship, resulting
in no deductions and maintenance of a minimum ADSCR above 1.2x.

S&P could lower the rating if the project's operational
performance deteriorates, negatively affecting the working
relationships between the parties, or if the project is exposed
to deductions that cannot be passed through to the respective
subcontractors.  S&P could also lower the rating if the project's
financial profile deteriorates due to higher-than-expected costs,
for example, insurance costs, or as a result of the exposure to
RPI.


DALTONS PLANT: Cash Flow Issues Prompt Administration
-----------------------------------------------------
Muhammad Aldalou at Insider Media reports that two family-owned
transport companies in Southampton have been placed in
administration after suffering from cash flow issues over the
last few months.

Carl Jackson -- carl.jackson@quantuma.com -- and Andrew Watling
-- andrew.watling@quantuma.com -- partners in the Southampton
office of corporate recovery specialists Quantuma, were appointed
as joint administrators to Daltons Plant Ltd. and Dalton
(Southampton) Ltd. on Aug. 9, Insider Media relates.

Administrators are currently working to secure a sale of the
businesses and their assets, as well as safeguard the future of
20 jobs, Insider Media discloses.

The businesses were founded in the 1980s and have an established
reputation in the transport, distribution and storage industries,
according to Insider Media.  They are based at Belbins Yard,
Sandy Lane, Romsey, Southampton.


SABANA INC: In Administration Following "Operational Issues"
------------------------------------------------------------
Michael Barker at Fresh Product Journal reports that Sabana
Incorporated has gone into administration.

Administrators Cranfield Business Recovery were called in on
July 25 after earlier attempts to rescue Sabana failed to
materialize, Fresh Product Journal recounts.  The company
operated contracts to supply a number of supermarkets across the
country, and Cranfield business recovery specialist Brett Barton
-- brett.barton@cranfieldbusinessrecovery.co.uk. -- as cited by
Fresh Product Journal, said it "ultimately succumbed to the
pressure of attempting to service its debt facilities, having
been plagued by a number of operational issues."

Mr. Barton is currently continuing to supply to retailers in the
expectation of fulfilling customer contracts, Fresh Product
Journal discloses.  He said he is currently working to maximize
realizations in respect of the book debts and the fruit stock,
Fresh Product Journal notes.

Based in Sittingbourne, Ken, Sabana Incorporated is an importer
and distributor of pomegranates, kiwis and other exotic fruit.


WS LUSHER: Enters Administration Following Trading Losses
---------------------------------------------------------
Muhammad Aldalou at Insider Media reports that W.S. Lusher & Son
Ltd. is being marketed for sale after entering administration
with job losses.

The family-owned business was placed in administration on Aug. 5
under the care of business rescue specialist McTear Williams &
Wood, Insider Media relates.

According to Insider Media, partner Andrew McTear --
andrewmctear@mw-w.com -- said trading losses accrued in recent
years put strain on the company and a sale of the yard to
recapitalize the business proved impossible in time.

Since the appointment, 24 redundancies have been made, Insider
Media discloses.  The company employed a total of 41 staff,
including 32 site operatives and nine people in the office,
Insider Media notes.

"We have given everything we've got to make it work, but we've
been up against too many factors.  We very much hope that a
potential buyer may see a business opportunity," Insider Media
quotes company director Mark Lusher, who has been at the helm of
the business for the last 30 years, as saying.

Founded in 1924, W.S. Lusher & Son Ltd. operates principally in
the specialist property restoration and improvement market.

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.

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
