ANSETT AUSTRALIA: Air NZ & Qantas Start Discussions
---------------------------------------------------
The Board of Air New Zealand Limited has offered to sell its

entered into discussions with Qantas, the Acting Chairman of Air
New Zealand, Dr Jim Farmer, announced Tuesday.

"Ansett is continuing normal operations - and Qantas and Air New
Zealand will continue discussions over the next few days on the
terms of any acquisition of Ansett by Qantas.

"Any transaction would be subject to due diligence and approvals
of the Australian and New Zealand Governments and regulatory
approvals, including that of the Australian Competition and
Consumer Commission.

"The Board of Air New Zealand expects to be able to make an
announcement on the progress of the discussions with Qantas on,
or before, Thursday 13 September when the company is due to
present its annual results.

"Meantime, Air New Zealand, its major shareholders, Brierley
Investment Limited and Singapore Airlines Limited, and the New
Zealand Government are continuing to negotiate in good faith to
finalize arrangements to provide on-going financial support for
the operation of Air New Zealand international and domestic
airlines operations," Dr Farmer said.


AUSTRALIAN MAGNESIUM: Posts Chairman`s Address to Shareholders
--------------------------------------------------------------
Australian Magnesium Corporation Limited (AMC) posted Non
Executive Chairman Dr J Roland Williams' address to
shareholders:

"AMC has recently received considerable coverage in the
Australian financial press and I thought it only appropriate to
write to you about the information and, indeed speculation,
about your Company and in particular our intention to return to
the market to raise capital. The main point is we will soon
undertake a revised equity raising in order to secure the
development of the Stanwell Magnesium Project which is your
Company's major potential growth asset.

"An important objective of the new funding package will be to
reward, and preferentially treat existing AMC shareholders. This
is expected to involve offering existing shareholders the
following:

   * a bonus option entitlement,

   * a priority allocation, and

   * a preferential discount in the new equity issue.

"Since our previous capital raising proposal, the Company has
acquired significant additional financial backing for the
Stanwall Magnesium Project from the Commonwealth and Queensland
State Governments, both of whom are providing additional
commitments to the project for an amount of $100 million each.

"In the case of the State of Queensland, the Premier, The
Honourable Peter Beattie, has already stated his Government's
contribution is expected to facilitate a distribution to
investors during the period leading up to the commencement of
commercial magnesium metal production from the project.

"Moving to finalize arrangements for the structure and timing of
the funding package, your management is now in the final stages
of documenting arrangements with the Commonwealth and Queensland
State Governments, our major shareholder, Normandy Mining
Limited and our debt and equity advisers. A major feature of
these arrangements will be a smaller public equity offering than
previously undertaken.

"AMC continues in the strong belief that the development of the
Stanwell Magnesium Project will play a vital role not only in
the Australian resources sector but from an overall Australian
economic point of view. We expect that both existing and new
investors will find our revised equity offer an attractive
investment opportunity and we look forward to presenting it in
due course.

"Finally, you would have read that our major shareholder,
Normandy, is the subject of a takeover offer by AngloGold
Limited. While AMC will not comment on that offer, we do welcome
the comments made last week by AngloGold's CEO, Mr Bobby
Godsell, who said he would "honor commitments" made by Normandy
to AMC and would be "enthusiastic developers" of the project.

"It is the firm endeavor of your management to keep you fully
informed about the real developments within your Company and in
its funding arrangements. In the meantime may I thank you for
your continued support and trust you will join with us in our
major development objective."

Background Information  

Nick Brooke and David McEvoy were appointed as joint and several
administrators of Omni Group Limited on 14 December 2000. The
appointment followed the appointment of a Receiver and Manager
to its trading subsidiary, Omnitel (Aust) Pty Ltd, due to Omni
Group Ltd guaranteeing the debt owing by Omnitel (Aust) Pty Ltd
to the ANZ Bank. Omni Group Ltd is the publicly listed holding
company of the Omni Group. The company did not trade as the
Group's trading activities were conducted through Omnitel (Aust)
Pty Ltd.

Omni Group Limited is listed on the ASX but its securities are
currently suspended from trading.

Current status of assignment and actions required by creditors  

Following a resolution passed at the re-convened second meeting
of creditors held on 6 April 2001, Omni Group Ltd, together
Nicholas Brooke and David McEvoy in their capacity as Deed
Administrators, executed a deed of company arrangement on 27
April 2001. The main features of the deed, a copy of which is
published on this website, are:

All Omni's assets are to be assigned to the Deed Administrators
and are to be realized for the benefit of creditors. $400,000
will be paid and one million shares in Omni Group Ltd will be
issued or transferred to the Deed Administrators by Asia Pacific
Equity Funding Pty Ltd for the benefit of creditors.

The above payment of the $400,000 and the issue or transfer of
the shares are conditional upon and are due within fourteen days
of the following conditions precedent:

The Australian Stock Exchange Ltd (ASX) approving in principle
the re-listing of Omni Group Ltd on terms and conditions
acceptable to Asia Pacific Equity Funding Pty Ltd; and
Omni Group Ltd's shareholders approving (in a general meeting)
the acquisition of a business for the supply of security and
monitoring devices to China.

If the above approvals are not obtained within 120 days of
execution of the deed of company arrangement, a further meeting
of creditors will be convened to decided the company's future.
Creditors are to accept the above amounts in full and final
settlement of their debts and all liabilities are to be
extinguished in full.

The costs of convening the shareholders' meeting(s) and
obtaining ASX approval will be met by Asia Pacific Equity
Funding Pty Ltd.

In the event that Asia Pacific Equity Funding Pty Ltd conditions
precedent are not fulfilled, the Deed Administrators may enter
into an agreement with Moonlighting International Pty Ltd,
whereby Moonlighting will pay $300,000 to the Deed
Administrators in exchange for the right to take control of the
proposed re-listing of Omni Group Ltd.

Details of the proposed restructuring, together with a notice
calling for a meeting of shareholders, will be issued to
shareholders in the next two months.

A notice has been issued to creditors advising of the execution
of the deed and requesting they submit formal proofs of debt.
Creditors who are yet to submit formal proofs of debt should do
so immediately. Copies of the formal proof of debt may be
downloaded from this website.

Next milestone and estimated timetable  

Pursuant to the deed, Asia Pacific Equity Funding Pty Ltd has
Friday 24 August 2001 to obtain the shareholder and ASX
approvals. If these approvals are obtained on 24 August 2001,
the payment of $400,000 by Asia Pacific Equity Funding Pty Ltd
will not be due until Friday 7 September 2001.  

Likely outcome for creditors and timetable  

The Administrators have advised that if the ASX and shareholder
approvals are obtained, they estimate the likely return to
unsecured creditors will be in the range of 18 cents to 33 cents
in the dollar, with the higher figure assuming the one million
shares in Omni Group Ltd are sold for $400,000 (ie, 40 cents per
share) following the intended re-listingare. Details of these
calculations, which include an analysis of likely realizable
values for the company's remaining assets may be found in the
published documents section of this website - refer to the
report to creditors dated 3 April 2001 titled "Update on status
of administration and deed proposals."

The Administrators are unable to make a distribution to
creditors until the $400,000 is paid by Asia Pacific Equity
Funding Pty Ltd, which is not expected until 7 September 2001.
Therefore, an interim distribution to creditors will most likely
occur in October 2001, with a final distribution paid after the
shares in Omni Group Ltd are sold once it is re-listed.

PASMINCO LIMITED: S&P Lowers Long Term Rating -o 'CCC'
-----------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's lowered the long-term ratings on Pasminco Ltd.
and its guaranteed bank loan to 'CCC' from 'B' following the
company's announcement that it may be forced into voluntary
administration if a standstill agreement is not reached with its
financiers by the end of October 2001. The long-term ratings
remain on CreditWatch with negative implications where they were
placed on July 2, 2001. The 'C' short-term rating on the company
is placed on CreditWatch with negative implications.

The company is conducting urgent discussions with all its
financiers and is hopeful of delivering a commitment to the
standstill agreement on Sept. 12 when it releases its delayed
annual results. Pasminco's creditors are undertaking an
independent review of the company's proposed asset divestment
plan and ongoing business strategy, and have been providing
short-term funding and liquidity support to Pasminco, pending
finalization of their review.

Liquidity support provided by Pasminco's bankers is essential to
the company's continued commercial survival. In particular, the
company's announcement on July 20, 2001, that it would
restructure its operations and balance sheet by selling its
Australian zinc/lead mining assets, has required support from
the company's lenders given the size and value of the
transaction. Standard & Poor's believes that the company's
current discussions with key relationship lenders could lead to
a general consolidation and rescheduling of all debt facilities.

However, at its current rating, Pasminco is vulnerable to
nonpayment of its obligations and is dependent on favorable
business, financial, or economic conditions to meet its
financial commitments in the short term.

The recent ratings downgrades reflect Pasminco's poor profit
performance; restrictive foreign currency hedge position; and
high debt levels arising from the company's growth strategy,
principally the acquisition of Savage Resources Ltd. in February
1999, and the development of the Century zinc/lead mine in
Queensland. The company is proposing to sell its four Australian
zinc/lead mining operations, as well as its zinc/lead
development project at Dugald River in Queensland.

The mines to be divested include the company's world-class
Century zinc/lead mine, with capacity for five million tonnes of
ore per year and a mine life of about 20 years. In addition, the
Broken Hill, Elura, and Rosebery mines are to be divested. Sales
proceeds are to be applied to debt reduction. Pasminco's total
financial indebtedness currently stands at A$2.6 billion
(including A$230 million off-balance-sheet lease obligations),
of which A$720 million relates to the company's foreign exchange
hedge position.

The company has a near-term debt maturity profile, with about
A$230 million of debt facilities maturing by June 2002. Its next
debt repayment for about US$17.5 million falls due in January
2002 and is expected to be serviced by existing cash flow and
cash balances.

The CreditWatch will be resolved on determination of Pasminco's
debt-refinancing and long-term capital structure following
receipt of funds from the proposed asset sales. The long-term
rating could be lowered further if the company is unable to
complete its asset sale program within a reasonable time frame,
or if the liquidity support provided by bank lenders is
withdrawn.


TENNYSON NETWORKS: Jaytide Becomes Substantial Holder
-----------------------------------------------------
Jaytide Pty Ltd became a substantial shareholder in Tennyson
Networks Limited on 16/08/2001 with a relevant interest in the
issued share capital of 4,545,454 ordinary shares (5.25%).

The company completed its restructuring of operations and
refocusing of sales strategies to provide a sharper business
focus for future success last month.

The actions taken in the past months flow from recommendations
by independent experts PricewaterhouseCoopers Corporate Advisory
Group and Brian Gatfield, who advised Tennyson.

Following the reorganization of the Company's operations,
overheads have been more than halved, the workforce has been
reduced by over 30 percent and the new leadership team is now in
place.

BAKRIE SUMATRA: Plantation Shares Drops
---------------------------------------
The plantation shares suffered of Bakrie Sumatra Plantation has
a slight correction last week, dropping only 0.25%. The price
correction was merely due to selling pressures made by investors
on shares, which dropped 2.04% in small transaction volume,
Bisnis Indonesia reported on September 11.

This occurred amid volatile domestic CPO price as the result of
the rupiah appreciation and declining price of crude palm oil in
the international commodity market.

Two shares closed unchanged although they were actively traded.
Throughout the period, the plantation share transaction volume
reached 26.814 million units worth Rp33.678 billion.

Transactions of the three shares were no longer triggered by AAL
shares, which became the locomotive to trading of the plantation
shares in the previous periods. The selling pressure on Bakrie
Sumatra Plantation was only able to cut the index slightly by
0.05% to close at 120.02 (06 September) from 120.09 (30 August).

"The number of securities companies probed by Bapepam became 41
from only 14. Based on the document obtained and data from 152
securities companies, Bapepam detected a new indication in other
securities companies, Bapepam's Investigation Bureau Chief
Abraham Bastari said.

"In the era of scrip less trading, the change of shares from one
broker to another happens so quickly," capital market observer
Dandossi Matram said.

Bastari said Bapepam plans to summon BCA directors in connection
to BCA share case investigation this week.

Bapepam is hopeful that whoever is coming for the summon will be

ASAHI BANK: Still Under Review For Downgrade, Says Moody's
----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service says that it will continue to review
the ratings of Asahi Bank (Asahi) for possible downgrade in
response to the integration moves initiated by Asahi Bank to
Daiwa Bank on September 7, 2001.

Asahi Bank has confirmed that it did initiate talks with Daiwa
Bank with regard to the integration of its business with Daiwa
Bank. However, at this point in time, no meaningful agreement
appears to have been reached between these two institutions as
to either the form of integration, or the projected timeframe
for the achievement of such integration.

Moody's says that the integration would create a banking group
of about JPY50trillion, and may possibly reduce the rising
concerns about the narrowing strategic alternatives for Asahi.

However, Moody's considers that the possible credit implications
are difficult to gauge at this time, given the substantial
uncertainty surrounding the possible integration and the usually
long lead time associated with the completion of any integration
in the Japanese banking system.

Therefore, Moody's will continue to review Asahi for possible
downgrade. The rating agency will continue to focus on the
bank's financial fundamentals, particularly its economic
capitalization troubled by its relatively large unrealized
losses in its investment securities portfolio, and the
continuing deterioration of local middle-market corporate credit
quality. Also, Moody's says that Daiwa Bank's credit ratings
(Baa3 long-term deposit rating and E bank financial strength
rating) remain unaffected.


HITACHI LTD: Moody's Changes Outlook to Negative
------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has changed the outlook for Hitachi,
Ltd.'s (Hitachi) senior unsecured long-term debt, currently
rated A2, to negative from stable. The rating outlook for
Hitachi Asia Ltd., Hitachi Finance (UK) Plc, Hitachi America,
Ltd., and Hitachi International (Holland) B.V. was also changed
to negative from stable. The outlook change reflects Moody's
concern that Hitachi's profitability will be pressured by the
downturn in the global electronics market.

On August 31, Hitachi revised downward its forecast for fiscal
year March 2002. Hitachi now expects net losses of JPY140bn on
sales of JPY7,850bn, compared with the originally expected net
profit of JPY90bn on sales of JPY8,750bn. The net losses of
JPY140bn include restructuring charges of JPY80bn.

Moody's says that Hitachi's rating already incorporates
fluctuations in profitability arising from silicon cycles.
However, Moody's believes that the current downturn in the
global electronics market will be deeper and longer than
formerly expected and this will have a negative impact on
Hitachi's profitability. Moody's will continue to monitor how
Hitachi copes with the increasingly hostile market environment.

Hitachi, Ltd., headquartered in Tokyo, is the largest integrated
electronics company in Japan.

DAE DONG: STX to Take Over Shipbuilder After Chosuk
---------------------------------------------------
STX, formerly Ssangyong Heavy Industries, said Friday that it
would be able to sign a main contract on the takeover of Dae
Dong Shipbuilding Co right after the Chusok holiday at the
earliest. STX was chosen as the preferred bidder for the ailing
shipbuilder late last month, Korea Herald reported on September
11. STX will not merge with Dae Dong after the takeover and
instead run it as a subsidiary.

STX has been conducting a due diligence investigation of Dae
Dong, a company official said, and that the main contract could
be signed after the Chusok holiday, which falls on October 1, at
the earliest or at least before the end of this year. The
takeover price was not disclosed, but the size of the stake to
buy will depend on the outcome of the due diligence
investigation.


DAEWOO MOTOR: More Losses Pending Despite Talks
-----------------------------------------------
Creditor banks of Daewoo Motor Co. will have to suffer
additional losses regardless of the results of the ongoing
negotiations on the sale to General Motors Corp (GM), Korea
Herald reported on September 11, which quoted Korea Development
Bank (KDB) Gov. Jung Keun-yong.

The main creditor KDB is in charge of orchestrating the
carmaker's sale to the world's largest automaker.

"Creditor banks, which have not put up full loan-loss reserves
against their exposures to Daewoo Motor, will stand to lose
additional money whatever the outcome of the talks may be," said
the KDB head.

"Bank loans to Daewoo Motor total 12 trillion won and no money
will flow into it after the conclusion of the sale talks," he
said. "Banks which have set aside 70 percent to 80 percent of
their lending in loan-loss reserves will inevitably suffer
additional losses."

Gov. Jung also said differences are still being ironed and it
would take more time to conclude the deal. "The signing of a
memorandum of understanding on GM's takeover does not mean that
all related problems have been solved. An MOU signing is just
the start of full scale talks on the sale of Daewoo Motor."

Jung, however, dismissed reports of Bupyeong plant buyout and
said "no brand (automaker) wants to buy the Bupyeong plant."


DAEWOO MOTOR: GM to Buy Bupyeong Plant
--------------------------------------
Daewoo Motor creditors and General Motors agreed that the latter
will acquire Daewoo's main Bupyeong plant along with other
plants, with a preliminary agreement expected to be signed on
September 20, Digital Chosun reported on September 9. GM's top
management at its head office, reportedly, has been reviewing
the draft of the preliminary agreement.

GM went as far as offering to use the Bupyeong plant as a plant
to produce GM models on a commissioned basis, on the condition
that creditors will be coming up with additional financial
support.

GM, which planned to retain the current 7,100 workforce at the
Bupyeong plant for the time being, planned to purchase the
Bupyeong plant and will operate the main plant on a trial base
for the next two to three years and after the trial, it will
decide whether to maintain, transfer or close the plant.

If the two parties succeed in signing the agreement, GM will be
making its final asset evaluation on the Korean automaker for
the next two to four months before inking a final sales contract
with the creditors.

Government sources also confirmed that GM will be purchasing or
acquiring all domestic car plants of Daewoo located in Kunsan
and Changwon and some of Daewoo's overseas production plants and
sales offices. Of Daewoo's foreign production plants, GM is
expected to purchase those in Egypt, India, Vietnam and
Uzbekistan. The remaining issue is whether GM will purchase a
controlling 11.1 percent stake in Daewoo Auto Sales.


HYNIX SEMICONDUCTOR: S&P Lowers Ratings to 'CC'
-----------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's lowered its long-term ratings on Korean-based
Hynix Semiconductor Inc. (Hynix) and its subsidiary Hynix
Semiconductor Manufacturing America Inc. (HSMA) to double-'C'
from triple-'C'-plus. The ratings remain on CreditWatch, where
they were placed with negative implications on Aug. 21, 2001.

The downgrades reflect an increased likelihood that a financial
assistance package under discussion by Hynix's creditors will
include a debt-for-equity swap. Should the possible support
package include a debt-for-equity swap, or any other terms
detrimental to some classes of creditors, the issuer credit
ratings on Hynix and HSMA will be lowered to 'SD' (selective
default).

RATINGS LOWERED, ON CREDITWATCH NEGATIVE

Hynix Semiconductor Inc.
Corp credit rating                                 CC

Hynix Semiconductor Manufacturing America Inc.
Corp credit rating                                 CC

Senior secured debt                                CC


HYNIX SEMICONDUCTOR: Subject to Sept. 15 Bill
---------------------------------------------
Hynix Semiconductor will become subject to the new bill, where
creditors, subject to their 50 percent approval, will not be
permitted to collect their overdue loans from Hynix
Semiconductor, Digital Chosun reported on September 10.

The government proposed a bill where creditor banking
organizations will not be able to exercise their collections of
secured payments if half of the total creditors approve a
rollover of debts.

The bill for stimulating the private sectors' restructuring is
going to take effect starting from September 15 and the
Financial Supervisory Service plans to confirm this debt
collection measure in its plenary session to be held on
September 14.

The FSS had earlier planned to propose a more than 75 percent
consent by the creditors on suspending the collection of overdue
loans on the ailing firms, but due to mounting opposition, the
FSS lowered the ratio to more than 50 percent approval.


HYUNDAI SECURITIES: Labor Union Opposes Foreign Takeover
--------------------------------------------------------
The Hyundai Securities Co labor union yesterday strongly opposed
to the company management's reported acceptance of a prospective
foreign buyer's demand that the issuing price of its preferred
stock be lowered to 7,000 won a share from 8,940 won, Korea
Herald reported on September 11.

"We are against a decision by the board of directors to accept
the demand by a foreign consortium led by American International
Group (AIG)," a union official said. "We will launch an all-
night sit-in in protest against the board move."

The labor union is considering tough legal action in order to
nullify the board decision, he said, accusing the board members
of acting against the interests of the company shareholders and
employees.

Non-union employees of the nation's second largest brokerage
house also opposed the board's decision to accept the AIG-led
consortium's demand.

and the subsequent consolidation of every twenty (20) ordinary
shares of RM0.025 each into one (1) ordinary share of RM0.50,

(collectively referred to as the "Proposed Corporate

THE REVISED PROPOSED RESTRUCTURING EXERCISE

Details of the revised Proposed Restructuring Exercise after
taking into account the revisions arising from the Foreclosure
of PUB are as follows:

Proposed Capital Reconstruction

The Proposed Capital Reconstruction comprises the following:

Proposed Wisma KFC Rescission

On 17 January 1996 and 30 January 1997, IHMB entered into
various sale and purchase agreements and supplemental agreements
("KFC Agreements") with KFC, Grand Ultimate Sdn. Bhd. and
Impress Eight (M) Sdn. Bhd. for the acquisition of Wisma KFC via
the issuance of 32,812,500 new IHMB shares of RM0.50 each at a
price of RM3.20 per share ("Placement Shares").

On 16 December 1996, IHMB entered into an Underwriting and
Placement Agreement with Taiping Securities Sdn. Bhd. (now known
as Taiping Recovery Sdn. Bhd. - In Liquidation) ("TRSB") for
TRSB to underwrite and place out the Placement Shares to
Bumiputera placees.

On 9 September 1997, the title of Wisma KFC was transferred to
IHMB and in return on 13 October 1997, IHMB issued the Placement
Shares to TRSB to be placed out to Bumiputera investors approved
by the Ministry of International Trade and Industry ("MITI").  

However, due to the depressed economic and the stock market
condition at that time, the said Placement Shares could not be
placed out by TRSB.

On 11 September 1997, IHMB entered into a memorandum of first
legal charge to charge the Wisma KFC to TAFC as part of a
security for a loan taken up by IHMB of RM142.5 million from
TAFC for the purpose of the acquisition of 6,000,000 ordinary
shares in PUB.

Subsequently, on 10 August 1998, IHMB entered into an agreement
with KFC to rescind and revoke the KFC Agreements. The
rescission and revocation agreement expired on 31 March 2001 and
IHMB is currently in negotiation with KFC to reach an agreement
to effect the transfer of Wisma KFC back to KFC.  

The current directors of IHMB are of the opinion that the
issuance of the Placement Shares were good and accordingly to
facilitate the Proposed Wisma KFC Rescission, IHMB will seek to
recover the Placement Shares from TRSB and subsequently cancel
the Placement Shares pursuant to Section 64 of the Act. IHMB is
currently in negotiation with the Special Administrators of TRSB
to reach an agreement to effect the recovery of the Placement
Shares.

Further announcement on the above will be made and the details
will be forwarded to the relevant authorities upon the signing
of the said agreements.

Proposed Capital Reduction and Consolidation and Proposed
Reserve Reduction

The Proposed Capital Reduction and Consolidation encompasses a
capital reduction exercise pursuant to Section 64 of the Act to
reduce the issued and paid-up share capital of IHMB (after the
Proposed Wisma KFC Rescission) further from RM279,984,857
comprising 559,969,714 ordinary shares of RM0.50 each to
RM13,999,243 comprising 559,969,714 of RM0.025 each by
cancellation of RM0.475 of the par value of each ordinary share
of RM0.50 each in IHMB (fractions, if any, will be disregarded),
thus reducing the par value to RM0.025 per share.

Thereafter, the issued and paid-up share capital of IHMB shall
be consolidated such that every twenty (20) ordinary shares of
RM0.025 each shall be consolidated into one (1) ordinary share
of RM0.50, upon which the sum of RM0.50 each shall be credited
as having been fully paid-up, thereby consolidating the
559,969,714 ordinary shares of RM0.025 each into 27,998,486
ordinary shares of RM0.50 each.

The Proposed Capital Reduction and Consolidation also entails
the utilisation of the entire balance of RM102,821,281 in the
Share Premium Account of IHMB via Section 60 of the Act and the
Capital Reserve Account of IHMB to reduce the accumulated losses
of IHMB as at 31 December 2000 and further losses pursuant to
the Proposed Debt Reconstruction.

The Proposed Capital Reduction and Consolidation and the
Proposed Reserve Reduction would give rise to an aggregate
credit of up to RM368,806,895 which would be utilized to reduce
the accumulated losses of IHMB as at 31 December 2000 and
further losses pursuant to the Proposed Debt Reconstruction by
the same amount.

Proposed Share Exchange

Upon completion of the Proposed Capital Reduction and
Consolidation and Proposed Reserve Reduction, the shareholders
of IHMB (after the Proposed Wisma KFC Rescission) will have
their respective Consolidated IHMB Shares cancelled and replaced
by new Newco Shares on the basis of one (1) new Newco Share for
every two (2) Consolidated IHMB Shares.

The credit arising as a result of the cancellation of the
27,998,486 Consolidated IHMB Shares amounting to RM13,999,243
shall be applied to pay up in full the issue of 27,998,486 new
ordinary shares of RM0.50 each in IHMB to be allotted and issued
to Newco, making IHMB a wholly-owned subsidiary of Newco.

This will result in Newco's issued and paid-up share capital
increasing to RM14,009,243 comprising 14,009,243 Newco Shares
from the existing RM10,000 comprising 10,000 Newco Shares.

The Proposed Share Exchange will be implemented through a
proposed members' scheme of arrangement pursuant to Section 176
of the Act.

Proposed Corporate Restructuring

The Proposed Corporate Restructuring comprises the following:

Proposed Shares Subscription

On 13 July 2000, IHMB entered into the Subscription Agreement
with the Investor and Newco. Pursuant to the Subscription
Agreement, the Investor will undertake to subscribe for
150,000,000 new Newco Shares in cash at par.

The Subscription Agreement expired on 16 February 2001 and a
supplemental agreement to the SSA was entered into between IHMB,
the Investor and Newco on 8 September 2001 to incorporate the
revisions to the Proposed Restructuring Exercise and to extend
the date of fulfillment of all the conditions precedent to the
Proposed Shares Subscription to 28 February 2002.

The completion of the SSA shall take place on a date and at a
time within six (6) months (as defined in the SSA) of the
unconditional date of the SSA or such other date the Investor
and Newco may mutually agree upon, failing such agreement then
at 9.00 a.m. on such sixth month. The unconditional date shall
be the date when the last of all the conditions precedent to the
Subscription Agreement are fulfilled or is/are waived, as the
case may be by 28 February 2002.

The Subscription Shares will, upon issue and allotment, rank
pari passu in all respects with the then existing Newco Shares
in issue. The Subscription Shares will not be entitled to the
Proposed Rights Issue but will be entitled to the Proposed
Rights Issue of ICULS-B.

All the Subscription Shares will be allotted to the Investor but
will be issued to the Investors in two tranches as follows:

   (b) tranche I will comprise 28,139,307 new Newco Shares; and

   (c) tranche II will comprise 121,860,693 new Newco Shares.

Both tranches will be allotted to the Investor concurrently.
Nevertheless, the Subscription Shares under tranche I will be
issued and listed on the KLSE first together with the Yield
Shares (as hereinafter defined) and the then existing Newco
Shares in order to meet the minimum share capital of
RM60,000,000 for a public company to be listed on the Main Board
of the KLSE and to meet the minimum public spread of 25% of the
total issued and paid-up share capital of a public listed
company.  

Those Subscription Shares under tranche II will only be issued
and listed on the KLSE upon the listing of the Rights Shares.  

The gross proceeds arising from the Proposed Shares Subscription
of RM150,000,000 will be used as part repayment to the Scheme
Creditors (as hereinafter defined) pursuant to the Proposed
Restructuring Exercise.  

As provided in the supplementary agreement to the SSA, that in
the event the Proposed Restructuring Exercise is not implemented
and completed for any reason not attributable to the fault of
either the Investor or Newco, the Investor and Newco shall then
have and IHMB grants the Investor and Newco, the first right to
negotiate with IHMB for the acquisition of Talasco.

Proposed Rights Issue

Upon completion of the Proposed Capital Reconstruction and the
Proposed Shares Subscription, Newco proposes a renounceable
rights issue of up to 42,027,729 new Newco Shares credited as
fully paid-up at an issue price of RM1.00 per share on the basis
of three (3) new Newco Shares for every one (1) existing
ordinary share held.  

The Rights Shares will, upon issue and allotment, rank pari
passu in all respects with the then existing Newco Shares in
issue. The Rights Shares are entitled to the Proposed Rights
Issue of ICULS-B.

The details of the utilisation of total gross proceeds arising
from the Proposed Rights Issue of RM42,027,729 are as per Table
1 at http://www.bankrupt.com/misc/IdrisHydraulic.html

The Proposed Rights Issue will be fully underwritten by the
Investor and/or his nominated parties.

Proposed Rights Issue of ICULS-B

Newco will also undertake a renounceable rights issue of up to
RM21,062,928 nominal value ICULS-B at an issue price of RM0.10
each on the basis of one (1) new ICULS-B for:

   (i) every one (1) Subscription Share held; or

   (ii) every one (1) Yield Share (as hereinafter defined) held;
or

   (iii) every one (1) Rights Share successfully subscribed and
allotted under the Proposed Rights Issue i.e. the entitled
shareholders to the Proposed Rights Issue who renounce their
entitlements to the Rights Shares provisionally allotted to them
under the Proposed Rights Issue will simultaneously relinquish
their entitlements to the rights to subscribe to the ICULS-B
pursuant to the Proposed Rights Issue of ICULS-B to the
renouncee.

The Proposed Rights Issue of ICULS-B will be fully underwritten
by the Investor and/or his nominated parties.

The details of the utilisation of total gross proceeds arising
from the Proposed Rights Issue of ICULS-B of RM21,062,928 are as
per Table 2 at http://www.bankrupt.com/misc/IdrisHydraulic.html  

The principal indicative salient terms of the ICULS-B are as per
Table 3 at http://www.bankrupt.com/misc/IdrisHydraulic.html

The proceeds (if any) arising from the conversion of ICULS-B
into new Newco Shares will be placed in a sinking fund to
provide for settlement of corporate guarantees, if necessary,
pursuant to the Proposed Corporate Guarantee (as hereinafter
defined) should any of the SPV RULS or SPV RSLS (as hereinafter
defined) remains unredeemed then. The remaining balance
thereinafter, if any, will be utilized for working capital
purposes.

Proposed Talasco Transfer

In conjunction with the above, IHMB proposes to transfer the
entire issued and paid-up share capital of Talasco comprising
100,000,000 ordinary shares of RM1.00 each representing IHMB's
entire shareholding in Talasco to Newco for a consideration of
RM130,913,946 to be satisfied by setting-off the amount due from
IHMB pursuant to the settlement of debts on behalf of IHMB as
per the Proposed Creditors' Schemes of Arrangement (as
hereinafter defined). After the Proposed Talasco Transfer,
Talasco and its subsidiaries ("Talasco Group") will be wholly-
owned subsidiaries of Newco.

The purchase consideration is based on the audited net tangible
asset ("NTA") value of Talasco Group's audited accounts for the
financial year ended 31 December 1999.

The Talasco Shares shall be transferred to Newco free from any
and all security, assignment, security interest, pledge,
mortgage, lien, charge, option, hypothecation, encumbrance and
claim or any right of any kind of third parties, with all rights
attached thereto as at the date of completion of the Proposed
Talasco Transfer including, but without limitation, all bonuses,
rights, dividends and distributions declared and unpaid or made
in respect thereof.

Proposed Listing Transfer

It is proposed that the listing status of IHMB be transferred to
Newco which will result in the Consolidated IHMB Shares being
delisted and the Newco Shares being listed on the Main Board of
the KLSE.

Proposed Debt Reconstruction

The Lenders and trade and other creditors of IHMB whose debts
are above RM250,000 ("Scheme Creditors") under the Proposed Debt
Reconstruction represents creditors of IHMB and creditors
arising from the following:-

(a) Proposed Debt Novation and Debt Crystallisation

The Proposed Debt Novation and Debt Crystallisation involves the
following:

(i) proposed novation of outstanding balances owing to certain
of the Lenders as at 31 December 1999 ("Cut-Off Date") amounting
to RM49,694,000 to IHMB, being banking facilities extended to
certain subsidiaries of IHMB, namely Advanced Electronics (M)
Sdn. Bhd., East Coast Electronic Sdn. Bhd., Klinker Investments
Ltd. and Wiragain Sdn. Bhd.; and

(ii) the proposed crystallization of corporate guarantees
amounting to RM65,900,000 given by IHMB to third parties for

The Proposed Debt Provision involves the following:

(i) the proposed provision (if required), on a no admission of a
liability basis, of up to RM42,780,000 pursuant to disputed
claims made by Transwater Corporation Berhad ("Transwater")
arising from a novation cum assignment-agreement dated 12
September 1997 entered into by IHMB, Rekapacific Berhad and
Transwater for the proposed acquisition of 11,408,000 PUB
Shares. The novation cum assignment agreement entitles
Transwater to an assignment fee of RM42,780,000 resulting from
Transwater assigning its rights to IHMB in respect of the
acquisition of the said PUB Shares from Rekapacific Berhad. The
acquisition of the said PUB Shares by IHMB did not materialize
and IHMB had not settled the promissory note amount to RM40.641
million arising from the assignment fee. Transwater had since
filed a winding-up petition against IHMB based on the alleged
assignment fee of RM40.641 million which has been dismissed by
the High Court of Malaya on 24 March 2000. Subsequently,
Transwater has filed an appeal to the Court of Appeal but no
hearing date has been fixed for the hearing of the appeal yet;
and

(ii) the proposed provision of RM2,800,000 arising from a claim
made by Razaly Associates, a local firm of architects for
services rendered to a subsidiary of IHMB of which IHMB has
acknowledged the said claim.

IHMB and Transwater ("Scheme C(3) Unsecured Creditor") have
agreed to settle the matter out of court and Transwater has
given its consent to the revised Proposed Restructuring
Exercise. Currently, IHMB, Newco and Transwater are in the midst
of finalizing the conditional settlement agreement and an
announcement on the said agreement will be made in due course.

(c) Proposed Set-off

The Proposed Set-off involves the setting off of all fixed
deposits amounting to RM75,549,000 placed with the relevant
Scheme Creditors against the amount outstanding due to such

Proposed SPV Acquisition of Residual IHMB Group

As an integral part of the Proposed Debt Reconstruction, SPV
will be incorporated with an initial issued and paid-up ordinary
share capital of RM2.00 comprising two (2) ordinary shares of

together with all its subsidiaries and associated companies

IHMB's investments in its existing subsidiaries and associated
companies (except for Talasco) are written-down to their
respective net realizable value and all inter-company balances
will also be written-off.

Newco will also undertake to pay on behalf of SPV (via the
Proposed Issue of Yield Shares) the yield of 2.5% for the SPV
RSLS and SPV RULS to be issued by SPV pursuant to the Proposed
Creditors' Schemes of Arrangement.

A trust company or a professional firm of Public Accountants
will be appointed to manage the daily operation of SPV and will
be responsible for the Proposed Disposal of Assets by SPV (as
hereinafter defined). The directors and shareholders of the SPV
will be persons appointed by the trust company or the
professional firm of Public Accountants and will not be persons
related to the Directors and/or shareholders of Newco.

The indicative salient terms of the SPV ICPS are as per Table 9
at http://www.bankrupt.com/misc/IdrisHydraulic.html

Proposed Disposal of Assets by SPV

Upon completion of the Proposed SPV Acquisition of Residual IHMB
Group, SPV will undertake to dispose of the assets and/or
investments of Residual IHMB Group to redeem the SPV RSLS and
SPV RULS issued to the relevant Scheme A(1) Secured Creditors,
Scheme A(2) Secured Creditor, Scheme B Partially Secured
Creditors, Scheme C(1) Unsecured Bank Creditors and Scheme C(2)
Unsecured Creditors pursuant to the Proposed Creditors' Schemes
of Arrangement.

The proceeds generated from the disposal of the assets by SPV
will be placed in a sinking fund for the purpose of redeeming
the SPV RULS and SPV RSLS. The assets identified at this
juncture to be disposed of together with their indicative
disposal value are as per Table 10 at
http://www.bankrupt.com/misc/IdrisHydraulic.html

Any recovery on the realization of the entire equity interest in
Savoy Equities Limited held by IHMB which is currently pledged

utilized to reduce the amount waived by DMLL.

In the event that the assets identified for disposal by SPV are
disposed of prior to the completion of the Proposed SPV
Acquisition of Residual IHMB Group, the actual disposal proceeds
will be used to repay to the creditors who hold the assets as
security.

The relevant creditors' entitlement to the proceeds from the
Proposed Shares Subscription and/or the Proposed Rights Issue
will be reduced accordingly by the same amount as the cash
repayment from the disposal proceeds arising from the disposal
of the assets by SPV and any surplus cash (in the case where the
actual disposal proceed is higher than the indicative disposal
proceeds) shall be distributed proportionately to the respective
Scheme Creditors' entitlement whose liabilities are to be
converted into SPV RSLS and SPV RULS.

The relevant Scheme Creditors who hold certain assets (which
forms part of Residual IHMB Group) to be disposed of to SPV as
security shall continue to hold and maintain all their rights as
security holders over such assets, notwithstanding the disposal
of such assets to SPV pursuant to the Proposed Disposal of
Assets by SPV. SPV shall dispose of such assets upon
instructions of and upon terms agreed by each of the relevant
Scheme Creditors in relation to the respective assets held by
them as security.

The terms and conditions in relation to the structure and
composition of the SPV and the administration of the assets
disposed of by SPV shall be set out in an agreement to be agreed
upon by the relevant Scheme Creditors.  

Excess cash (if any) derived from the Proposed Disposals of
Assets by SPV will be utilized to repay the relevant Scheme
Creditors earlier but will not be used to reduce the portion of
their debts waived. Any excess thereafter will be used to repay
the debts owing to Newco arising from the settlement of debts on
behalf of IHMB pursuant to the Proposed Creditors' Schemes of
Arrangement.

Proposed Corporate Guarantee

Newco proposes to provide the holders of the SPV RSLS and SPV
RULS separate corporate guarantees RSLS and SPV RULS of
RM235.955 million, which will enable the SPV RSLS and SPV RULS
holders to call on their respective corporate guarantee upon the
maturity of the SPV RSLS and SPV RULS, should any of the SPV
RSLS and SPV RULS remains unredeemed then.

Proposed Settlement of Corporate Guarantees

The corporate guarantees would be fulfilled by Newco by way of
cash for the amount up to RM235.955 million pursuant to the
Proposed Corporate Guarantee. The cash settlement may be settled
via a private placement of new Newco Shares to be undertaken by
Newco, if necessary and approved by the relevant authorities.

DETAILS OF THE PROPOSED EXEMPTIONS

Upon completion of the Proposed Share Exchange, tranche I of the
Proposed Shares Subscription and the Proposed Issue of Yield
Shares based on the proforma shareholding effect as shown in
Table 11(http://www.bankrupt.com/misc/IdrisHydraulic.html)the  
Investor together with Fahitah bte. Md. Senawi (the existing
Director and shareholder of Newco holding one (1) Newco Share
and the sister to the Investor ("Party Acting in Concert")) will
own, directly 28,149,307 Newco Shares representing approximately
46.34% equity interest in Newco. Subsequently upon completion of
tranche II of the Proposed Shares Subscription and the Proposed
Rights Issue based on the proforma shareholding effect as shown
in Table ( 11http://www.bankrupt.com/misc/IdrisHydraulic.html),
the Investor together with the Party Acting in Concert will own,
directly 150,040,000 Newco Shares representing approximately
66.79% equity interest in Newco respectively.  

In view of the above, pursuant to the Malaysian Code on Take-

to extend two mandatory offers to the remaining shareholders of
Newco to acquire all the remaining shares in Newco not already
owned by the Investor and Party Acting in Concert at the same
price as the Proposed Shares Subscription, that is, at RM1.00
per share.

mandatory offers pursuant to Practice Note 2.9.3 of the Code
("Proposed Exemptions"). The Proposed Exemptions are being
sought by the Investor and Party Acting in Concert pursuant to
Practice Note 2.9.3 of the Code. Practice Note 2.9.3 permits an
exemption to be sought from the obligation to undertake

rescue case.

Bank Bumiputra Malaysia Berhad) and the facility was secured by
a first legal charge over the Land (beneficially owned by MBfPS)
in favor of BCBB. DUSB subsequently acquired all the rights,

base lending rate per annum) as at the date of which the last of
the conditions precedent as stated in the Agreement is complied
with shall be settled by MBfH in the following manner:

   *  67% of the balance shall be converted into new MBfH shares
at the conversion rate of 1 new MBfH share for every RM2.00
debt. The new MBfH shares will be issued with free warrants
attached on the basis of 2 warrants for every 5 new MBfH shares
to be issued; and

of RM1.00 only nominal amount of RCSLS for every RM1.00 debt The
RCSLS will be issued with free warrants attached on the basis of
2 warrants for every RM5.00 only nominal amount of RCSLS.

regulatory authorities.

the manner hereinabove or before the last day of 12 months from
the date of this agreement or such further date as the parties
hereto may mutually agree in writing (Stop Date) , MBfH shall
pay to DUSB within 7 business days from the Stop Date.

consultancy services and property investment.

The company has an authorized and paid-up share capital of
RM2,000,000.00.

Rationale for the Transaction

The aforesaid transaction is pursuant to the proposed SOA of
MBfH. There will be an estimated interest savings of
RM1,360,000.00 per annum.

COSMOS BOTTLING: SMC Completes 70% Due Diligence
-------------------------------------------------
San Miguel Corporation (SMC) has completed approximately 70
percent of its due diligence for Cosmos Bottling Corporation
(CBC), one week before the expected signing of a definitive
agreement with the soft drink firm's parent company, Manila
Bulletin reported on September 11, which quoted officials
from RFM.

RFM executive vice president and COO Felicisimo M. Nacino Jr.
said the firm's representatives will have a progress meeting
with SMC representatives on September 12. The meeting will
determine whether all items needed to be done under the due
diligence process are right on time before both company
forged the definitive agreement.

"San Miguel wanted to fast track the due diligence process, and
from all indication, they already conducted the financial, legal
and technical due diligence for Cosmos," Nacino further said.

RFM vice president and chief information officer to the PSE
Ramon M. Lopez said recently that it agreed with SMC to adopt
concrete measures to accelerate the completion of the due
diligence and the drafting of the share purchase agreement.

This, according to Lopez, is in line with the provisions of the
memorandum of understanding between the two groups, which sets a
target period of 30 days for the due diligence and a target date
of September 15 for the signing of the definitive agreement.


NATIONAL BANK: Holders Might Agree to P40 Selling Price
-------------------------------------------------------
Shareholders of state-owned Philippine National Bank (PNB) may
yet agree to lower the par value of shares to PhP40 from the
current PhP60, Business World reported Tuesday, though the
majority shareholder Lucio C. Tan is yet to give his nod on the
plan, which will allow the government to buy back more PNB
shares at a cheaper price.
PNB had earlier declared a par value of PhP60 per share for the
year 2000. At that level, the government's stake would be worth
PhP1.6 billion more.
"The bank's par value will be reduced after the two parties
agree on a conversion price," PNB Chairman Norberto C. Nazareno
said.
"The value will definitely not be PhP60. Once you agree on a
conversion price, definitely the book value will go down," he
added.
A team from the Department of Finance has been formed to
negotiate with PNB officials for a possible reverse
privatization of the bank.

Under the reverse privatization scheme, the National Government
will assume Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) loans to PNB by
swapping them with P15 billion in Treasury bills and bonds. A
P10-billion loan given by the Philippine Deposit Insurance Corp.
(PDIC) will be converted to shares in the bank.

Depending on the specific terms of the deal, the debt-to-equity
swap will increase the National Government's stake in PNB to
anywhere between 30 percent and 51 percent.

The reverse privatization plan is yet to be approved since the
two parties have yet to agree on a conversion price for the
shares.

The swap plan calls for the bank to be rehabilitated through the
infusion of fresh capital and the entry of new senior
management, while it awaits "optimum conditions" for a joint
sale to a strategic buyer of shares owned by both the government
and majority owner Mr. Tan.

Mr. Tan's group owns roughly 67 percent of PNB while the state
holds 16 percent interest in the bank.


NATIONAL POWER: Arroyo Issues Public Bidding MO 30
--------------------------------------------------
President Arroyo created Monday a special committee that will
conduct the public bidding for the reinsurance of $10-billion
worth of National Power Corp properties insured with the
Government Service Insurance System, ABS-CBN News reported on
September 10.

Memorandum Order 30 was issued upon the recommendation of
Finance Secretary Isidro Camacho, committee chairman, and Energy
Secretary Vincent Perez Jr., one of the five voting members of
the committee formed to seal the rift between the Napocor and
the GSIS over the issue.

"The President thinks that this should be a model for such
reinsurance contracts. An open bidding process will soon be
undertaken in the case of the SSS and for other government
agencies. The point here is that we would like all such
transactions for insurance and other government contracts to
be as transparent as possible," Presidential Spokesman Rigoberto
Tiglao said.

In the directive, the President said, "in the spirit of
competitiveness and to ensure a level playing field, there is a
need to allow the widest participation of the private sector in
servicing the insurance and reinsurance needs of Napocor"
through public bidding that would "ensure a cost-effective,
efficient and responsive insurance coverage."

MO 30 mandates "an open, competitive and transparent bidding
process for the reinsurance of the properties of the Napocor
insured with the GSIS" through the use of the "most suitable"
electronic bidding process to be determined by the committee.

The other voting members of the committee are the GSIS general
manager, the GSIS senior vice president and the Napocor
president. Acting as witness would be Napocor's resident
Commission on Audit auditor.

The committee, whose decisions will be carried out by a majority
vote, is expected to convene on September 14.

CAPITALAND LIMITED: Unit Agrees to Sell Tampines Mall
-----------------------------------------------------
The board of directors of CapitaLand Limited announced that
Tampines Mall Limited (TML), a 55 percent indirect subsidiary of
CapitaLand Limited, has entered into a Call Option Agreement
with CapitaLand Commercial Limited (CapitaLand Commercial), a
wholly-owned subsidiary of CapitaLand Limited, relating to the
disposal of a commercial property known as Tampines Mall to
a party to be nominated by CapitaLand Commercial at the price of
S$409 million, if the call option is exercised on or before 31st
December, 2001. This latest transaction is part of CCL's efforts
towards establishing a public-listed Singapore Property Trust
(SPT) for retail malls.

Rationale

The Property is intended to be included in the investment
portfolio for a listed Singapore property unit trust (SPT) which
CapitaLand Commercial proposes to set up, subject to obtaining
all regulatory approvals and prevailing market conditions at the
relevant time. CapitaLand Commercial is pursuing the SPT
opportunity as part of CapitaLand Limited's plan to move further
into fee based businesses such as property fund management while
leveraging on its asset management and property management
expertise.

Material Terms of the Agreement

Pursuant to the terms of the Agreement, the call option may only
be exercised after the close of the proposed public offer of the
units of the SPT. Upon the exercise of the call option under the
Agreement, CapitaLand Commercial must nominate and procure the
trustee of the SPT to enter into a pre-agreed sale and purchase
agreement with TML for the purchase of the Property. Completion
of the sale and purchase of the Property will take place on the
same day as the date of the exercise of the call option.

Financial Effects

The above price of S$409 million for the Property was arrived at
on a willing-buyer-willing-seller basis.

As the call option may be exercised only in favor of the trustee
of the SPT as described above, the financial effects of the sale
of the Property will be determined at such time when the
disposal of the Property is completed.

Interests of Directors and Substantial Shareholders

Mr Liew Mun Leong, the president & CEO of CapitaLand Limited, is
also the deputy chairman of CapitaLand Commercial. Mr Jackson
Peter Tai, a director of CapitaLand Limited, is the chairman of
CapitaLand Commercial. Mr Hiew Yoon Khong, the chief financial

Save as aforesaid, none of the Directors of CapitaLand Limited

described above and the directors are not aware of any
substantial shareholders of CapitaLand Limited having any
interest in the transaction.

Tampines Mall Limited, is jointly owned by CCL, which has a 55%
stake, while NTUC Fairprice and the PERNAS Group, own the
remaining stakes of 25% and 20% respectively. Tampines Mall,
which opened in February 1996, is intended to form
part of the portfolio of retail malls to be acquired by a
proposed public-listed SPT which CCL anticipates launching by
the end of this year, subject to obtaining all regulatory
approvals and prevailing market conditions.

Located in the Tampines Regional Center and adjacent to the
Tampines MRT station and bus interchange, Tampines Mall is
within close proximity to a high concentration of both private
and public housing. Within the vicinity are also commercial and
business developments such as the CPF Tampines Building, the HDB

Tampines is a regional center with a population of about 800,000
residents within a 7-km radius which covers not only Tampines,
but also the Simei, Pasir Ris, Tanah Merah, Eunos, Bedok and
Marine Parade residential estates.

This latest announcement regarding Tampines Mall follows CCL's
recently announced agreements relating to Junction 8 and Funan
IT Mall as part of the proposed establishment of a listed SPT
for retail malls. The SPT is another vehicle to expand
CapitaLand's fee-based businesses anchored upon property assets.

The SPT will leverage on CapitaLand's experience in listed
companies, fund management capabilities and asset and property
management expertise.
