From Bloomberg: Rhinebridge Commercial Paper SIV Says May Be Unable to Pay Debt (hat tip julian)

Rhinebridge Plc, a structured investment vehicle run by IKB Deutsche Industriebank AG, said it may not be able to pay back debt related to $23 billion in commercial paper programs.

Rhinebridge suffered a ``mandatory acceleration event'' after IKB's asset management arm determined the SIV may be unable to repay debt coming due, the Dublin-based fund said in a Regulatory News Service release. A mandatory acceleration event means all of the SIV's debt is now due...
Just yesterday, the Cheyne Finance receiver said: "In our view people should not take this as a precedent for other SIVs." Uh, nevermind.
