ANSETT AUSTRALIA: ASIC, Administrator Discuss Corporate Act
-----------------------------------------------------------
The Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) has
noted the appointment of Allan John Watson of
PricewaterhouseCoopers as Voluntary Administrator of Ansett
Holdings Limited and a number of related companies (Ansett).

ASIC Chairman David Knott said that ASIC will hold early
discussions with the Administrator on issues of concern under
the Corporations Act.

"We are particularly concerned (about) receiv(ing) an early
assurance from the Administrator that Ansett is able to pay in
full all employee entitlements-including any redundancies,"
Knott said.

"We will also be asking the Administrator to provide an opinion
on Ansett's compliance with the solvent trading provisions of
the Corporations Act.

"ASIC is conscious that the immediate priorities for the
Administrator to explore are avenues for the continuing
operation of Ansett and for the maximum protection for the
interests of employees and creditors," he said.


ANSETT AUSTRALIA: ANZ, SIA, Brierley Enter Agreement
----------------------------------------------------
Brierley Investments Limited (BIL) reached an agreement with
Air New Zealand, Singapore Airlines (SIA) and the New Zealand
Government on a NZ$300 million equity injection by BIL and SIA
and a NZ$550 million credit facility to be provided by the New
Zealand Government. This agreement follows Air New Zealand's
decision to place the Ansett Group into voluntary administration
and the impact of this decision on Air New Zealand's balance
sheet.

Under the terms of the agreement, BIL and SIA will each
subscribe for NZ$150 million in new shares at the lower of
NZ$0.67 per share (being the volume weighted average price of
Air New Zealand's A and B shares traded on the New Zealand Stock
Exchange on 7 September 2001) and the volume weighted average
price of the A and B shares over the 10 trading days preceding
the meeting of Air New Zealand's shareholders to approve the
transactions.

Based on an issue price of NZ$0.67 per share, BIL's pro forma
stake in Air New Zealand after the share placement will be
approximately 37%. A lower issue price will result in a higher
stake.

As part of the agreement, the New Zealand Government will
provide Air New Zealand with a Note facility of up to NZ$550
million. Upon drawdown of this facility, Air New Zealand will
issue to the Government two tranches, in equal proportions, of
seven-year and 10-year subordinated notes.

In addition, the Government will provide Air New Zealand with a
two-year revolving credit facility of up to NZ$200 million for
working capital purposes. Any amounts drawn under this facility
will be set off against the NZ$500 million Note facility.

It is the intention of the parties that the equity injection and
credit facility will provide Air New Zealand with sufficient
capital and financial flexibility to maintain its operations
following the decision to place the Ansett Group into voluntary
administration.

The agreement is conditional on various matters, including all
necessary shareholder and regulatory approvals, the cessation of
any further financial support to the Ansett Group, appropriate
waivers and consents from Air New Zealand's creditors, and
financial due diligence on the company.

Under the agreement, BIL, SIA and the New Zealand Government
have agreed that each of BIL and SIA will have the right to
appoint three Directors to the Board out of a total of nine
Directors. One each of the BIL and SIA appointees must be a New
Zealand national, to be appointed after consultation with the
New Zealand Government.

The Chairman of the Board appointment will require BIL's, SIA's
and the New Zealand Governments agreement. The three parties are
committed to working closely with one another to ensure that an
appropriate focus is brought to bear in stabilizing Air New
Zealand's financial position following the losses sustained by
the Ansett Group and in maintaining the airline's strong track
record and its position as New Zealand's national carrier.

Greg Terry, Chief Executive Officer of BIL, said: "We believe
that the solution achieved today at Air New Zealand not only
ensures that Air New Zealand has a viable financial future, but
also in the longer term, restores value for BIL and all our
shareholders. This solution provides the opportunity for us to
rebuild value, which would otherwise have been lost."

FINANCIAL UPDATE

As a consequence of Air New Zealand's Board decision to place
Ansett in voluntary administration and to write down the
carrying value of its investment in Ansett to A$1, BIL will
reduce the carrying value for its associate, Air New Zealand, by
approximately US$163.1 million. The amount represents its equity
accounted share of the NZ$1.321 billion charge taken by Air New
Zealand. The non-cash charge to the Profit & Loss Account will
be disclosed as an exceptional item in BIL's results for the
financial year ended 30 June 2001 to be announced 27 September
2001.

Following the disposal of its 28.7% interest in James Hardie
Industries Limited in May of this year, it was anticipated that
BIL would return to profitability in the year ended 30 June
2001. However, as a result of this significant write-off at Air
New Zealand, BIL is now expected to report a loss for the year
ended 30 June 2001.


ANSETT AUSTRALIA: S&P Lowers Parent's Rating to `B-`
----------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's lowered the long-term corporate credit rating
on Air New Zealand Ltd. (ANZ), parent company of Ansett
Australian, which was placed in voluntary administration on
Sept. 13, 2001, to `B-' from `B+'.

At the same time, the CreditWatch on the ratings has been
revised to developing implications from negative implications,
where they were first placed on April 2, 2001. The CreditWatch
on the `C' short-term rating also is revised to developing
implications from negative implications.

The rating downgrade reflects ANZ's very weak financial profile,
its limited financial flexibility, the uncertainties associated
with the recapitalization package involving key shareholders and
the New Zealand government, and the company's heightened
vulnerability to the difficulties faced by the airline industry.
ANZ's operating lease-adjusted leverage (debt to debt plus
equity) increased to an onerous 93% at June 30, 2001 (75.7% in
2000) following its NZ$1.32 billion write-down of the company's
Australian subsidiary Ansett.

Excluding Ansett's liabilities, ANZ's stand-alone leverage was
modestly lower at about 87%. The write-down has caused Air NZ to
be in breach of its bank covenants. It has also necessitated a
rescue package from its key shareholders Singapore Airlines Ltd.
(not rated) and Brierley Investments Ltd. (BBB-/Stable/A-3), and
the government of New Zealand (local currency AAA/Stable/A-1+,
foreign currency AA+/Stable/A-1+).

At the same time, global air travel, already under pressure from
an economic slowdown in the U.S., Europe, and Japan, is expected
to be significantly disrupted in the near term by the recent
terrorist attack in New York City and Washington D.C., which
also is contributing to rising fuel prices.

The CreditWatch change reflects uncertainty as to ANZ's
financial position and debt-servicing capacity, and the final
details and likely success of the rescue package, with the
package subject to various approvals and conditions, including
those from ANZ's shareholders and banks.

Importantly, commitment to the rescue package hinges on Air NZ
releasing a full set of audited accounts, and clarification of
its current financial position and contingent liabilities,
without Ansett on its balance sheet.

Furthermore, the size of the equity injection in the package,
anticipated to be NZ$300 million, is uncertain given that it is
subject to the risk of ANZ's share price remaining below NZ$0.67
(resident-only A shares about NZ$0.53 and B shares about NZ$0.53
on latest trading).

Although Singapore Airlines and Brierley each have agreed to
contribute NZ$150 million, the issue price of the new shares
will be at the lower of NZ$0.67 per share or the volume-weighted
average price at which Air NZ's share price trades over the 10
business days before shareholder approval is gained on Oct. 30,
2001. At an issue price of NZ$0.67, Singapore Airlines'
shareholding would increase to about 34%, which will be close to
the 35% maximum holding that recently has been approved by the
New Zealand government (currently 25%).

In addition to the NZ$300 million equity injection, the
recapitalisation package also includes financial support from
the New Zealand government through a standby facility of up to
NZ$550 million. Although the New Zealand government has not
explicitly committed to any further support, Standard & Poor's
believes that the government may provide some additional support
if required, given ANZ's status as the New Zealand flagship
carrier, and the critical importance of the airline's operations
to the New Zealand economy and its export revenues.

The CreditWatch Developing indicates that the rating could go up
or down. If ANZ's banks and shareholders continue to support the
company, and commit themselves to the rescue package, a modest
rating upgrade could result, given ANZ's very strong position in
the New Zealand aviation market, which offsets its exposure to
greater competition and uncertainty in its international routes.

If, however, ANZ's banks or shareholders withdraw support for
ANZ, and the rescue package does not materialize, a rating
downgrade could result. A rating outcome under this scenario
would depend on any forthcoming support for the company by the
New Zealand government.

Under any rating scenario, Standard & Poor's views the credit
quality of Air NZ's subsidiaries as being weaker than that of
the parent given Air NZ's recent withdrawal of support for
Ansett and the placing of Ansett into voluntary administration.


ANSETT AUSTRALIA: Qantas Provides Special Assistance
----------------------------------------------------
Qantas Airways Limited introduced a range of measures to assist
Ansett passengers and staff.

Qantas Executive General Manager Aircraft Operations, David
Forsyth, said the move followed the decision by Air New Zealand
to put its subsidiary, Ansett, into voluntary administration,
and this morning's decision by the administrator to suspend all
services of Ansett Australia, Ansett International, Hazelton
Airlines, Kendell Airlines, Sykwest Airlines and Aeropelican.

The measures Qantas has put in place include:

* flights at no charge for Ansett customers who have commenced
their journeys and find themselves without a means of returning
home within the next seven days.* Passengers affected should
call Qantas on 13 13 13 to book their return journey;

* special domestic air fares* for travel until 31 October, for
people who have purchased Ansett tickets but have not yet
commenced travel, including -

Sydney-Melbourne   $149.60 one way / $299.20 return
Sydney-Brisbane    $129.80 one way / $259.60 return
Melbourne-Brisbane $220.00 one way / $440.00 return
Adelaide-Melbourne $129.80 one way / $259.60 return
Melbourne-Perth    $289.30 one way / $578.60 return

* special air fares* discounted by up to 80 per cent for Ansett
International customers who have purchased Ansett tickets for
travel to and from Japan, Bali, Hong Kong and Fiji for travel
until 31 October;

* a help line for Ansett customers on 13 22 23; and

* a register for Ansett staff to indicate their interest in
employment with Qantas, with these staff to be given
preferential consideration for new positions. Details will be
announced as soon as possible.

Forsyth said that Qantas was not able to honor bookings on
Ansett flights or take on the financial liability of accepting
frequent flyer points issued by Ansett.

He added that Qantas was aware of the impact the Ansett
situation would have on regional Australia and was investigating
options to try to meet the needs of this market wherever
possible.

"We plan to arrange special services to more than 30 regional
destinations previously served only by Ansett and its regional
subsidiaries. Fares for these services will be offered at
discounts of up to 50 per cent."

Forsyth said Qantas and Ansett customers seeking more detailed
information should access the special Ansett information section
of the Qantas web site at www.qantas.com.au.

"A lot of people will have questions and our staff will do their
best to assist them, however I would like to stress that the
Internet will provide the fastest way for people to access the
most up to date information," he added.

* on presentation of an Ansett ticket or e-ticket receipt;
subject to availability.


ANSETT AUSTRALIA: Virgin Blue In Asset Acquisition Talks
--------------------------------------------------------
Richard Branson's Virgin Blue discount carrier scrambled to buy
up some of collapsed airline Ansett Australia's assets on
Friday, reported Reuters citing Virgin Blue's Commercial Head
David Huttner.

"Executives are in talks with administrators of the collapsed
Air New Zealand subsidiary and were also discussing the
possibility of sponsoring some of the grounded carrier's
planes," he added.

Air New Zealand revealed on Thursday it had written off its
entire NZ$1.3 billion investment in Australia and withdrawn all
support for Ansett, letting it fall into the hands of
administrators.

Ansett administrator Peter Hedge, who took a decision overnight
to suspend all of the airline's operations, said on Friday he
had no alternatives because the company had no resources.

The grounding of Ansett, stranded thousands of travelers and
sparked angry protests at airports in Australia's major cities,
according to the news agency.


CABLE & WIRELESS: SingTel's Offer Closes Today
----------------------------------------------
Singapore Telecommunications Limited (SingTel), reiterated
the offer for all of the ordinary shares in Cable & Wireless
Optus Limited (Optus) made by SingTel's wholly-owned subsidiary,
SingTel Australia Investment Ltd (SingTel Australia) will close
at 7:00pm (Sydney time) today, 17 September 2001.

SingTel Australia has now dispatched notices of compulsory
acquisition of outstanding Optus shares. Trading in Optus shares
will be suspended from close of trading Friday, however
shareholders are still able to accept the SingTel offer, if they
do so before the offer closes at 7.00 pm on Monday, 17
September.

Shareholders accepting the offer before it closes will receive
the offer consideration earlier than if they wait for their
shares to be compulsorily acquired.

SingTel Australia proposes to dispatch the offer consideration
to Optus shareholders who accept before 7.00pm (Sydney time) on
or before 17 September 2001 (the last day of the offer period)
during the week beginning 24 September 2001.

Shareholders who wait for their shares to be compulsorily
acquired will receive their chosen offer consideration later
than those who accept the offer - at the earliest, around the
week commencing 15 October 2001.

Accordingly, SingTel urges shareholders to accept the offer
before the end of the offer period, rather than wait for their
shares to be compulsorily acquired.

EDITOR'S NOTE

Offer documents were dispatched to Optus shareholders the week
of 21 May 2001. If shareholders have any questions regarding how
to accept the Offer, they should contact Computershare Investor
Services Pty Limited at 1 800 501 501 (for callers in Australia)
or +61 3 9615 5970 (for international callers). If shareholders
have any other questions regarding the Offer, they should call
the Optus Shareholder Information Line at 1 800 677 678.


FRANKLINS: ACCC Proposes Joint Marketing Arrangements
-----------------------------------------------------
Following its approval of a managed sell down of the Franklins
supermarket chain, the Australian Competition and Consumer
Commission (ACCC) issued a draft determination proposing,
temporarily, to allow Franklins and some buyers of its
supermarkets to jointly promote products sold in Franklins
supermarkets.

"The proposed authorizations will benefit consumers by
increasing the amount of promotional activity engaged in by
buyers of Franklins supermarkets during the period that stores
are being transferred to them," ACCC Chairman Professor Allan
Fels said.

"The ACCC's proposed authorization allows Franklins to develop
a joint marketing and advertising plan for the promotion of
products sold under the Franklins banner with each of Pick `n
Pay and Action. The agreement with Pick `n Pay will cover
groceries promoted in NSW and the agreement with Action will
cover groceries promoted in northern NSW and Queensland.

"The ACCC also proposes to authorize a clause in the sales
agreements of independent buyers of Franklins stores continuing
to trade under the Franklins banner which requires these buyers
to comply with Franklins' promotional programs for a limited
period.

"Increased promotional activity will facilitate the transfer of
successful supermarkets to Action, Pick `n Pay and independent
grocers, and contribute to maintaining the success of the
Franklins banner. In turn, this will facilitate continued
competition in the eastern Australian grocery industry by
enhancing the ability of Action, Pick 'n Pay and independent
grocery retailers to compete with companies like Coles and
Woolworths.

"The ACCC considers the detrimental effect on competition that
may result from the proposed authorizations is limited. The
agreements will only apply to promotional pricing, will only
specify minimum discounts and the parties to the arrangements
will be able to price all other products sold in their
supermarkets independently, as well as engage in other
promotional activities.

The ACCC proposes to grant authorization until the date that the
last Franklins store is closed or sold, or 1 April 2002,
whichever occurs sooner. The ACCC granted interim authorization
in relation to these applications on 4 July 2001.

Further information, contact: Professor Allan Fels, Chairman, by
phone:(03) 9290 1812 or pager: (02) 6285 6170; Mr Ross Jones,
Commissioner, by phone:(02) 6243 1178 or Ms Lin Enright,
Director, Public Relations, by phone:(02) 6243 1108 or (0414)

NEWCREST MINING: NAB Lowers Stake
---------------------------------
National Australia Bank Limited Group ceased to be a substantial
shareholder in Newcrest Mining Limited on 11/Septem/2001.
At the end of 2001, Newcrest Mining had negative working
capital, as current liabilities were A$252.92 million while
total current assets were only A$181.14 million, Wright
Investors' Service reported.
"The fact that the company has negative working capital could
indicate that the company will have problems in expanding.
However, negative working capital in and of itself is not
necessarily bad, and could indicate that the company is very
efficient at turning over inventory, or that the company has
large financial subsidiaries.
"As of June 2001, the company's long term debt was A$409.67
million and total liabilities (i.e., all monies owed) were
A$768.53 million. The long-term debt to equity ratio of the
company is 0.91."


TAMAR KNITTING: ACCC Begins Polo Label Criminal Proceedings
-----------------------------------------------------------
The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission has initiated
criminal proceedings in the Federal Court alleging that GIA Pty
Ltd, trading as Tamar Knitting Mills, and its Managing Director,
Eric Ian Thompson, contravened the Trade Practices Act 1974 by
falsely representing that Chinese made polo shirts sold by Tamar
were made in Tasmania by Tamar.

Tamar, a well-known manufacturer of knitwear items in
Launceston, Tasmania is now in liquidation.

The ACCC alleges that over a 12 month period, Tamar purchased
Chinese-made polo shirts, removed the original collar label on
each polo shirt which stated that the item was made in China,
substituted a 'Tamar' brand collar label, and attached a swing
tag to each polo shirt falsely representing that the item was
'Tasmanian' or was 'Made in Tasmania by Tamar Knitting Mills'.
The ACCC alleges that Tamar then offered the polo shirts for
sale to consumers.

The ACCC alleges that Thompson implemented and directed the
alleged conduct, which took place during 1999 and 2000.

The ACCC has also alleged that Thompson knowingly furnished
false information to the ACCC in response to a statutory notice
issued to the company, of which Thompson was the relevant
officer, during the ACCC's investigation.

A hearing is docketed for 8 October 2001 at the Federal Court in
Hobart.

BANK CENTRAL: IMF Welcomes Divestment
-------------------------------------
The International Monetary Fund (IMF) welcomes the House's
approval on divestment of the government's 51 percent stake in
Bank Central Asia (BCA), reports Bisnis Indonesia, while the
Indonesian Bank Recovery Agency (IBRA) has prepared a schedule
for the sale program.
"The divestment process is very important as a stepping stone
to cope up with the budgetary need," IMF Indonesia Head of
Representatives David Nellor said.
He expects the bid to run cleanly and grab a credible investor.
"To find out the finalization of the divestment is the next
thing. We must consult first with the financial advisory. We've
already had the time schedule but it still needs maturation from
the financial advisory," IBRA Chairman I Putu Gede Ary Suta
said after a hearing with House's Commission IX Wednesday.
He added the approval on the 21 percent additional divestment
would help widen the chance to sell the stake at premium price
of over 30%.
Putu explained the sale in private placement method is quite
different from that of the open tender, where in the private
placement, seller puts the offer to the potent financial
institution. Prospectus and the bid are also sent to them.
"Government has already had a targeted bidder while the private
placement is aimed at embracing prospective buyer with good
reputation. The two methods are different from the open tender
where everybody could participate in the bid," he added.


SEMEN GRESIK: Cabinet Meeting Discussion Re Spin-Off Scheduled
--------------------------------------------------------------
Spin-off between PT Semen Padang (SP) and PT Semen Tonasa (ST)
from the publicly listed cement company PT Semen Gresik (SG)
will be discussed in the cabinet meeting this week, Bisnis
Indonesia reported Friday.
"The meeting on Thursday at the Coordinating Ministry of
Economy only extended the report of the latest development on
the issue," Deputy for Coordination of Industry Dipo Alam said.
The Chairman of the team discussed the calculation of a spin-off
and the possibility for a put option by selling government's

September 14, citing an LG Investment & Securities report
Wednesday.

The report estimated a third quarter operating profit at W410
billion, slightly higher than the second quarter's figure.

POSCO's yearend operating profit will not drop by more than W5
billion compared to last year and the company's current profit
for this year will probably reach W833 billion, up from the W780
billion figure the company released a couple of months ago,
according to LG I&S.


SEOUL BANK: Pays Total W409.6B For Early Retirement
---------------------------------------------------
Seoul Bank paid W126 million to each of its 3,245 employees that
took early retirement, with total payment amounting to W409.6
billion ($315 million), Korea Herald reported September 14.

The Financial Supervisory Service said ten banks injected with
public funds were found to have paid employees retiring early
between 1988 and June this year W57.65 million ($44,346) per
person in special allowances on top of ordinary retirement
allowances.

In an FSS report presented to the National Assembly, a total of
22,907 bank employees with the 10 banks retired early during the
period, receiving a total of 1.32 trillion won ($1 billion) in
special retirement allowances. After their retirement, however,
494 of the total, or 26.5 percent, were rehired by the banks
they had worked for.

Seoul Bank rehired 640 employees or 19.7 percent, while Kyongnam
Bank rehired 16.6 percent employees returned and paid W104
million in special retirement allowances per retired employee.

The National Federation of Fisheries Cooperatives (NFFC)
reportedly paid W88.70 million on average to each of its retired
employees, excluding ordinary retirement allowances, while
Kwangju Bank paid W45.34 million, Hanvit Bank 48.82 million won
and Korea Exchange Bank 41.94 million won. The NFFC rehired 28
of its retired employees, Hanvit Bank 1,041 and Korea Exchange
Bank 366.

According to experts the banks' generous payment of special
allowances to retiring employees is a typical case of moral
hazard when "they squandered their funds unscrupulously, in the
belief that the government will fill up the shortfall with
public funds."

AMSTEEL CORP: Units Accepts Separate Sale, Purchase Agreement
-------------------------------------------------------------
The Board of Directors Amsteel Corporation Berhad (ACB)
announced that Keroh Resort Sdn Bhd (AKR) had agreed to accept
the variation of the three separate sale and purchase agreements
(ES SPA) on 7 September 2001 as set out in the letter dated 7
September 2001 issued by the other shareholders of Excellent
Strategy Sdn Bhd (ES) (Other Shareholders) as stated in Table at
http://www.bankrupt.com/misc/Amsteel.doc.

ACB, Norville Corporation Sdn Bhd (Norville) and Sumurmuda Sdn
Bhd (Sumurmuda) have agreed via a letter dated 7 September 2001
to complete the Proposed Acquisition of 49% Lion Gateway Parade
Sdn Bhd (LGP). They will waive the condition precedent of
completing simultaneously the Proposed Acquisition of 49% LGP
with the consideration of RM108.23 million payable by Amsteel
Mills Sdn Bhd (AMSB) to Johor Corporation (Jcorp) for its
acquisition of 100% equity interest in Antara Steel Mills Sdn
Bhd (Antara) (Proposed Exchange of Assets) with JCorp.

In consideration of ACB waiving the above condition precedent,
Norville and Sumurmuda have agreed to execute individual Put
Option Agreements with ACB, whereby ACB is entitled to resell
the 36.75% and 12.25% LGP equity stakes to Norville and
Sumurmuda, respectively, in the event the Proposed Exchange of
Assets with JCorp is terminated. The Put Option can be exercised
by ACB within 60 days from the termination of the Proposed
Exchange of Assets agreement with JCorp. The security offered by
Norville for the due performance of its Put Option Agreement is
a pledge of 7.5 million ES shares or some other security
agreeable to ACB, while the security offered by Sumurmuda for
the due performance of its Put Option Agreement is a cash
deposit of RM5.09 million or some other security agreeable by
ACB.

With the early completion of the Proposed Acquisition of 49%
LGP, ACB is certain of being able to meet its obligations
pursuant to the Proposed Exchange of Assets with JCorp which
will result in the settlement of RM108.23 million in debts due
from ACB to AMSB. Although the Proposed Acquisition of 49% LGP
is completed early, ACB still retains the flexibility through
the Put Option Agreements to re-sell the 49% LGP stake to
Norville and Sumurmuda in the event of termination of the
Proposed Exchange of Assets agreement.

Insofar as ACB is able to ascertain and is aware, none of the
Directors and major shareholders of ACB or persons connected to
the Directors and major shareholders of ACB have any interest,
direct or indirect, in the Proposed Acquisition of 49% LGP and
Proposed Disposal of ES to the Other Shareholders.

steps to acquire the remaining 36.75% and 12.25% equity
interests in LGP held by Norville Corporation Sdn Bhd
("Norville") and Sumurmuda Sdn Bhd ("Sumurmuda") respectively
("Proposed Acquisition of 49% LGP").

It was also announced on 16 February 2001 that pursuant to a
shareholders' agreement dated 6 November 1998 between AKR and
the other shareholders of ES ("Other Shareholders"), the latters

Hospital Pte Ltd ("HMI") (20%), Unirio Corporation Sdn Bhd
("Unirio") (9.67%) and Senipuri Emas Sdn Bhd ("Senipuri")

KELANAMAS INDUSTRIES: Listing Requirement Extension Requested
-------------------------------------------------------------
Kelanamas Industries Berhad made an application to Kuala Lumpur
Stock Exchange on 10 September 2001 for an extension of time of
three (3) months from 14 September 2001, in order to comply with
the Practice Note 4/2001 issued in relation to Criteria and
Obligation of the Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange's Listing
Requirement.

Background

At the time of listing the Company, then called Sungei Besi
Mines Bhd (SBM), was one of the major tin producers in Malaysia.
SBM had been incorporated to take over the business of the
Sungei Besi Mines Ltd (Sungei Besi), a UK-incorporated company.
Effective 1 November 1976, the issued share capital of Sungei
Besi was cancelled in exchange for shares in SBM.

In December 1989, SBM ceased its mining operations to become an
investment holding company. A period of diversification followed
from 1991 to 1997 during which the SBM Group became involved in
property investment, trading and distribution of consumer
products, manufacture of cordials, fruit juices, soft drinks and
food products, granite quarrying and stockbroking.

SBM changed its name to Kelanamas Industries Bhd (KIB) in 1993
to reflect its diversification from tin mining into the new
areas of business.

On 12 February 1999 the Group's main contributor, Alor Setar
Securities Sdn Bhd (ASSEC), was put under a Special
Administrator appointed by Pengurusan Danaharta Nasional Bhd.

Assec subsequently went through a restructuring exercise to help
restore its financial and operational viability. The scheme has
been fully implemented including a capital reduction and new
issue of shares to the new investor on 17 July 2000. As such,
from that date, Kelanamas Capital Sdn Bhd (subsidiary of KIB)
only holds 45 shares of a total of 30,000,100 shares of ASSEC on
issue.

Therefore, ASSEC is no longer a related company of KIB.

In addition, in May 2000, Kelanamas entered into an agreement
with Dolomite Bhd (DB) pursuant to the Group's restructuring
involving DB and its eight subsidiaries.

The restructuring entails capital reduction, debt reconstruction
and acquisition of the DB Group. The Group's future viability
hinges on the successful outcome of this restructuring scheme.

As part of the scheme, disposal/liquidation of all other
subsidiaries/assets/businesses shall be undertaken by Kelanamas.
Any corporate guarantee liabilities arising from the liquidation
of these subsidiaries and associated companies will be assumed
by the Company in its debt restructuring schemes.

application for extension of time for the implementation of the
Proposals in the future.

The Proposals entails the following:

relief while the future of its subsidiary - All Asia Life
Assurance Corp. (All Asia Life) - hangs in the balance,
Philippine Star reported on September 14, 2001.

All Asia Capital and Trust Corp. (AACTC) has petitioned the
Makati Regional Trial Court for debt relief on its debt
amounting to US$17 million from the International Finance Corp.
(IFC), the investment arm of the World Bank.

The petition, according to industry sources, comes immediately
after reports that two of its subsidiaries have been under
pressure for lack of reserves. Such shortage, contributing to
the company's debt problem.

The IFC extended a US$17-million loan to AACTC aside from
controlling seven percent of the holding company worth US$4
million. It has also pledged a substantial portion of its stake
in AACTC subsidiary, All Asia Life Assurance Corp., (All Asia
Life).

In a related development, the fate of All Asia Life regarding
its P234.4 million capital deficiency will be decided this week

-----------------------------------------
Quezon City Court temporarily halted Thursday the P15 billion
sale of Cosmos Bottling Corp's assets to a joint venture of
giants, San Miguel Corp. (SMC) and the Coca-Cola Co. Parent
company RFM Corp.

As reported by ABS-CBN on September 13, the court declared that
the sale should not included assets sold to Cosmos by another
softdrink company, Jaz Cola, in 1996.  The injunction holding

group, him being the chairman of the latter company during that
time.  He further alleges that Cosmos has yet to pay P400
million of the sale price and the correct amount of taxes
following the sale.

However, such court order would not affect the sale of Cosmos to

excluded from the sale, this according to RFM chief operating
officer Felicisimo Nacino. RFM hopes to complete the sale by the
end of this month.


MUSIC CORPORATION: Draws Up Restructuring Plan
----------------------------------------------
Music Corp. Legal Counsel Catherine Jennifer Gonzales said that
the semiconductor firm has drawn up a group corporate
restructuring plan to attract more investors and facilitate the
way for its eventual listing on other exchanges abroad, Inquirer
News Service reported on Friday referring to a Philippine Stock
Exchange statement.

The restructuring plan would involve the company incorporating
in Bermuda, a wholly owned unit to be used as a special-purpose
vehicle for the transfer of assets. Eventually, the new unit
would incorporate a new holding company to be known as Music
Holdings (MH), which would absorb the assets of the group.

In her statement, Gonzales says the restructuring also involves
the "surrender by existing shareholders of their shares in
Music Corp. to the special-purpose vehicle in exchange for MH
shares, which at the time of surrender, shall have been approved
for listing in one or more stock exchanges, including the PSE,
subject to approval by the appropriate regulatory authorities".

All payables and receivables from the special-purpose vehicle
shall then be offset by MH, which would later on sell shares to
a third party for cash.

The Music group also has interests in information and
communications technology through Music Telecom and the cash-
strapped Music.com, which is currently undergoing liquidation.

about 30 to 60 days," Secretary Perez said.

"We are studying options including the extension. But we may or
may not extend. We also do not want to rush the bidding. We
could ask for an automatic extension so we can have more time to
study the process," the Secretary added.

3. Reasons and facts concerning delisting of shares The Thai
economic crisis prevailing over the past years has drastically
hurt SUE's financial position and operating results such that
its securities were classified in the rehab group and risked
being delisted.  The Company has tried to tackle all problems
with various measures so as to improve its performance.

However, as the economy has remained in the doldrums, the
Company sees that it will be time consuming to have all
problems completely fixed, thereby impacting the shareholders in
terms of dividend.  At the same time, SUE's major shareholders
wish to delist the Company's shares from the Exchange so as to
bring about more flexibility in problem solving and enable them
to fully support the Company without being obliged to
disclose business information as well as significant business
movements and decisions which have been a threat to the
Company's competitive advantage compared with its competitors
most of which are non-listed.

The Company expects that with the support of its major
shareholders it will be able to continue the business
with competitiveness and build a strong financial health in the
long run.
