As reported by the TCR on April 6, 2016, Standard & Poor's Ratings
Services said that it lowered its corporate credit rating on Rex
Energy Corp. to 'SD' from 'CC'.  "The downgrade follows Rex's
announcement that it has closed an exchange offer to existing
holders of its 8.875% and 6.25% senior unsecured notes for a new
issue of 8% senior secured second-lien notes due 2020 (not rated)
and shares of common equity," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst
Aaron McLean.

In April 2016, the TCR reported that Moody's Investors Service
downgraded REX Energy's Corporate Family Rating to 'Ca' from
'Caa3', its Probability of Default Rating to Ca-PD/LD from Caa3-PD,
its senior unsecured notes to 'C' from 'Ca'.  "The downgrade
reflects the poor overall recovery prospects as indicated by REXX's
PV-10 value.  The negative outlook is driven by the weak commodity
price environment, specifically in natural gas pricing, which could
further erode REXX's recovery value," commented Sreedhar Kona,
Moody's senior analyst.


                            *********

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 $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.

On Thursdays, the TCR delivers a list of recently filed
Chapter 11 cases involving less than $1,000,000 in assets and
liabilities delivered to nation's bankruptcy courts.  The list
includes links to freely downloadable images of these small-dollar
petitions in Acrobat PDF format.

Each Friday's edition of the TCR includes a review about a book of
interest to troubled company professionals.  All titles are
available at your local bookstore or through Amazon.com.  Go to
http://www.bankrupt.com/books/to order any title today.

Monthly Operating Reports are summarized in every Saturday edition
of the TCR.

The Sunday TCR delivers securitization rating news from the week
then-ending.
