ANSETT: Bidders' Acquisition Talks Ongoing
------------------------------------------
Deputy Prime Minister John Anderson said Monday that five
serious though undisclosed bidders were in talks about taking
over parts of Ansett Australia Holdings Ltd, Asian Wall Street
Journal reported.

"That is good news, it does confirm that we will have
significant new entrants and commercial strength on our trunk
routes," Anderson said.

Anderson ruled out the idea of pumping any government money into
failed Australian carrier.

"We've made it clear we are not going to buy an aviation
company," Anderson said.

Opposition leader Kim Beazley met former Ansett workers at a
rally last week at Sydney Airport and vowed to throw the carrier
a financial lifeline if he wins power at elections expected next
month.

But Anderson reiterated the government's promise to Ansett
customers to secure their ticket purchases.

"We're standing behind purchases of tickets in order to give
them the security they need to buy those tickets, to give the
airline, as the administrators seek to sell it, a fighting
chance," he said.


AUSTAR UNITED: Signs Agreement With Telstra Re TelstraSaturn
------------------------------------------------------------
Austar United Communications announced that it had reached an
agreement with Telstra Corporation in relation to a restructure
of the Shareholders Agreement for their New Zealand joint
venture TelstraSaturn Limited.

After the 2004 financial year end, Austar will have the right to
sell its shares in TelstraSaturn to Telstra. Similarly, Telstra
will have the right to acquire Austars shares in TelstraSaturn.
In both cases the sale or purchase will be governed by terms and
conditions to be set out in the Shareholders' Agreement.

Under the terms of the restructured arrangement, Telstra will,
in the short term, contribute funding in the form of
subordinated debt. The remaining terms of the agreement are
confidential.

As a result of the restructure Austar believes that it can
execute its current business plan without the need for
additional financing.


HARTS AUSTRALASIA: Voluntary Administrator Appointed
----------------------------------------------------
The Board of Directors of Harts Australasia Limited resolved
Monday to appoint John Rees, David Cassidy and Michael McCann of
Grant Thornton as Voluntary Administrators of Harts Australasia
Limited and its subsidiaries.

Executive Chairman, Steve Hart, advised "it was necessary to
appoint a Voluntary Administrator to the Company as it had been
advised that certain finance facilities available to the Company
had been withdrawn due to the publicity, surrounding the
Australian Securities and Investment Commission's application to
the Federal Court."

"The Directors and Senior Executives of the Company will provide
all possible assistance to the Voluntary Administrator in an
effort to move the Company through this difficult period."


NEWCREST MINING: CBA Lowers Stake To 7.07%
------------------------------------------
Commonwealth Bank of Australia decreased its relevant interest
in Newcrest Mining Limited on 26 September, 2001, from
23,051,333 ordinary shares (8.24 percent) to 19,767,005 ordinary
shares (7.07 percent).


PACIFIC DUNLOP: Confirms Director D'Aquino's Resignation
--------------------------------------------------------
Pacific Dunlop Limited, further to the notification of the ASX
on 4 September 2001, confirmed N A D'Aquino's resignation as a
Director of the Company, effective 30 September 2001.


PRESTON RESOURCES: Issues Bulong Operations Production Report
-------------------------------------------------------------
Preston Resources Limited announced that nickel and cobalt
dispatched for sale amounted to 524 and 35 tons, respectively.
Circuit inventories of nickel increased by about 10 tonnes for
the month. Plant throughput was affected by mechanical
availability in the leach circuit with unscheduled maintenance
being required as a consequence of the collapse of baffles in
the intermediate heater vessel, and heater pump seal failures.
Restrictions in the partial neutralization circuit also affected
plant performance. Performance of autoclave feed pumps was
improved with the installation of valves made from advanced
materials.

SAFETY AND ENVIRONMENT

There were eight significant injuries during the month.
Appropriate actions have been implemented to address all
affected areas of the operation.

PRODUCTION

Production statistics for the month of August are:

THIS MONTH

UNIT              ACTUAL       PLAN     VARIANCE     VARIANCE(%)

INPUTS
Leach Feed (t)    37,543      44,863    -7.321           -16.3%

Co Grade (%)       0.120       0.105     0.015            14.3%

OUTPUTS

Co (t)            60.272      66.739    -6.467            -9.7%

The leach feed throughput was below budget due to restricted
throughput through the partial neutralization circuit and major
mechanical failures in the first half of the month.

The Kwinana Nickel Refinery (KNR) residue trial commenced with
additions to ore feed being made at 1% with no adverse effects
to the leach plant, however high copper levels associated with
this material caused plating problems in the tank house.

Of the total cobalt production for August, 33.03 tons was as
cobalt cathode and 1.95 tons as cobalt contained in sulphide.

MINING

Mine production activities were carried out in the Federal, Gala
and Albion 2 pits with ore and waste mining.

Total pit movement was above expectations with high excavator
dig rates in the Albion pit being the main contributing factor.
The 'soft' waste material coupled with a short haul lead for in-
pit dumping of waste were the major reasons for good production
rates. Grade Control activities comprised trenching in the
Federal and Gala pits, with mining in Federal, Gala and Albion
2.

Detailed sampling of all reject material from the ore
preparation circuit is enabling the estimation of a more
representative beneficiation upgrade. This suggests an upgrade
of around 10% for nickel is being achieved by rejecting low-
grade streams from the ore preparation circuit.

LEACH PLANT

The leach plant operated at 60.8 dry tons per hour (dtph) with
an availability of 80.3%. The most significant down time in the
leach plant for the month was related to the collapse of two
baffles in an intermediate heater vessel, a number of mechanical
seal failures and the replacement of a choke and seat on ore or
the flash vessels.

The collapse of two baffles in the heater vessel resulted in
flow being restricted. Upset conditions in the leach plant
resulted in the failure of 10 heater pump mechanical seals over
about 48 hours. Over half of the seals failed only minutes after
being operated. The reason for the failures is being
investigated. No further incidents of failure have occurred.

An analysis of the down time is:

* Operational - 1.6% (14hrs). The majority or this time was
associated with autoclave heat ups (12hrs).

* Unscheduled Maintenance - 17.9% (133.13hrs).

* Final heater stage steam cross over lines failed (8hrs).

* Both autoclave feed pumps down due to failed valves and
diaphragm (9hrs).

* 9 Aug - Baffles collapsed in the second heater vessel
requiring removal (26hrs).

* 12 Aug - Mechanical seal failures on the triple feed pumps for
the third heater vessel (25hrs).

* 14 Aug - Autoclave discharge choke failed on flash vessel
(38hrs).

* The autoclave #5 agitator mechanical seal failed (20hrs).

REFINERY

The refinery produced 523.9 tons of nickel at 93.4% recovery and
35.0 tons of cobalt at 85.5% recovery. Overall availability for
the refinery was 80.4%. The majority of down time was associated
with low feed levels. Minor down time resulted from a Nickel
Solvent Extraction (Ni SX) gypsum blockage, and Cobalt Solvent
Extraction (Co SX) agitator failure.

Co SX averaged 91.51% cobalt recovery at 84.6% availability.
Cobalt recovery was again low due to low extractant
concentration and difficulties controlling ammonia flow.

The KNR residue trial contributed to poor recoveries, due to
elevated levels of cobalt and copper in Pregnant Liquor Storage
(PLS). Copper recovery was very poor, again due to insufficient
extractant concentration. Flows were restricted at month-end in
an attempt to control the copper deportment to nickel catholyte.

Nickel solvent extraction averaged 93.5% nickel recovery at
80.4% availability. Nickel recovery was effected by several
circuit start-ups and periodic pH probe problems.

The anode replacement program continued during August.

Copper contamination from the KNR trial caused major disruptions
in the tankhouse, with large amounts of button-like dendrites
growing on the cathodes and starter sheets. Cathode bag
consumption increased dramatically and there was a 100%
rejection rate of the starter sheets for a short period of time.
Mild steel was used until nickel starter stocks increased. It
appears that a copper level of greater than 25ppm in catholyte
contributes to poor cathode growth.

METALLURGICAL PERFORMANCE

The table below shows all estimate of the total plant
metallurgical balance.

OVERALL PLANT METAL BALANCE       ACTUAL                OPTIMUM

Overall Plant Utilization(%)     69.9                  88.2

NB: Plant inputs X plant Recovery = Plant Stock Increase +
Product Availability = 1.ewa hours / Total hours

Autoclave extraction dropped from 92.9% in July to 91.01% in
August. A reduction in the autoclave discharge free acid was the
main contributor to the poor autoclave recovery. The free acid
level was reduced during the month in an attempt to reduce the
load on the partial neutralization circuit.

Overall leach plant recovery was down at 80.3% (83.6% July 2001)
for nickel and 82.2% for cobalt (82.6% July 2001) due to lower
autoclave extraction and Counter Current Decantation/Partial
Neutralization (CCD/PN) wash recovery.

OPERATING COSTS

The tables below summaries the breakdown of costs for the month
of August.

MINING COSTS

Total mining costs above budget due mainly to variation
in the contract mining area. Some of the variation was due to
the crushing and screening operations that were completed during
the period with non budgeted equipment hire (crusher and
loaders).

The other main cause of variation was the higher material
movement rates, especially waste mining, increasing over all
costs for the period.

LEACH PLANT COSTS

The leach operating costs for a ton of nickel to the PLS pond
was $60.80/t compared a budget of $54.70/t. There were no major
variations to costs.

REFINERY COSTS

Refinery was 21% under budget for the month. The main reason for
this was that the expected nickel extractant change-out expenses
were not incurred. If these costs are ignored, the refinery was
7% under target for the month. This is mainly associated with
the lower production levels.

MAINTENANCE COSTS

Maintenance costs totaled $903,000, being $218,000 over budget.
The major variance was in leaching.

PRODUCTION SERVICES COSTS

Costs were over budget because of increased spending associated
with capital works. Engineering administration was also over
budget.

COMMERCIAL COSTS

Supply - Product freight costs continue to be higher than
anticipated and as discussed last month, supply department are
investigating ways of reducing the increased charge.

Human Resources - Costs were $18,000 under budget as there has
been no need for recruitment of senior personnel. This results
in savings in the areas of advertising, relocation and agency
fees.

Site Administration - Costs are under budget by $3,000 and there
were no major variances.

REVENUE                                  AUGUST-2001
                                           A$'000

Nickel sales                                3,437
Cobalt sales                                  881

METAL PRODUCTION

Estimates of quarterly metal output, through to March 2002 are
shown in the table following.

QUARTER ENDING                      NICKEL
COBALT
                                             (IN TONS)

September 30, 2001                 1,750                    180
December 31, 2001                  2,105                    191
March 31, 2002                     2,007                    158

OUTLOOK

Plant availability and utilization improved during the course of
the month. Resulting in a good start to September. The ratio of
preventative maintenance to break down maintenance is steadily
improving resulting in improved plant performance. The next
scheduled 6 monthly planned maintenance shutdown will take place
at the end of October.

BAKRIE FINANCE: Sells Stake In Oil Company
------------------------------------------
PT Bakrie Finance Corp, which has 1.8 billion convertible shares
worth Rp900 billion in the oil company PT Bumi Resources, has
offered its Rp212 billion stake to holders of  its bonds
maturing last April, Asia Pulse reported Friday, citing Finance
President Imbang J. Mangkuto.

Bakrie Finance failed in April to pay a Rp200 billion debt in
bonds it issued in 1997.

"The company is also seeking an agreement with other creditors
to restructure non-bond debts totaling Rp1.4 trillion. The debts
include US$60 million to Korean banks, US$20 million to
Commonwealth Development Capital and Rp113 billion to the
Indonesian Bank Restructuring Agency (IBRA)," Imbang said.

The Indonesian Supreme Court recently accepted a review of a
bankruptcy suit filed by the Korean banks against Bakrie
Finance.

Creditors met Wednesday and agreed to name Pricewaterhouse
Cooper as an independent financial advisor to handle due
diligence and find a solution to the debt problem before the end
of this year.


CITATAH INDUSTRI: Hopeful $42M Debt Workout Will Be Accepted
------------------------------------------------------------
Marble Manufacturer PT Citatah Industri Marmer Tbk is optimistic
that it will be able to win its creditors' approval for the
restructuring of $42 million in debt by end of this year,
IndoExchange reported Monday.

Citatah's finance director Tiffany Yohanes said that the debt
was owed to 14 banks, 80%, or $17 million of which, is owed to
BNP Paribas led bank syndication. The balance is owed to the
Indonesian Bank Restructuring Agency (IBRA).

The company is currently negotiating on the terms of the loans,
debt to equity swap and convertible notes.

"Around 44% of the creditors have agreed to the proposed
scheme," Yohanes added.

HINO MOTORS: Purchasing Isuzu Parts To Reduce Costs
----------------------------------------------------
Hino Motors Limited will buy air suspension systems from Isuzu
Motors Limited to eliminate the development costs of auto parts,
in the wake of a prolonged slump in truck sales, News On Japan
reported September 30.

Current demand for air suspension systems have been rising
because they are tailor-made for transporting goods like
beverages and precision equipment, which are particularly
vulnerable to vibrations.

According to a Wright Investors' Service report, at the end of
2001, the company had negative working capital, as current
liabilities were 532.09 billion while total current assets were
only 389.66 billion. 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," Wright Investors' added.

HITACHI LTD: Plans DRAM Production Halt
---------------------------------------
Due to declining profits in the dynamicrandom access memory
(DRAM) business, Hitachi Limited has plans to withdraw from DRAM
chip production, the Asian Wall Street Journal reported Monday.

The Japanese company plans to stop DRAM production in Germany by
the end of March next year, and in Singapore, after April 2003.

Due to plunging profits in the DRAM business, Hitachi now
expects losses of Y95 billion in the current fiscal year.


MYCAL CORP: Venture With Wal-Mart Moves Forward
-----------------------------------------------
Former Mycal Corp. President Kozo Yamashita said that the
company has ceased conducting pre-bankruptcy tie-up negotiations
with Japan's largest supermarket chain operator Aeon Co,
formerly knows as Jusco Co. Wal-Mart Stores Inc. of the United
States remains in the negotiations, Asia Intelligence Newswire
reported Monday.

Dai-Ichi Kangyo Bank and former Mycal President Osamu Shikata
started negotiations with Aeon in June. In August, however,
Mycal suddenly switched to Wal-Mart for tie-up negotiations when
Aeon's interest declined.

"Mycal and Wal-Mart are planning to integrate the management of
Mycal's twenty to thirty profitable stores, while scrapping some
of the rest," Yamashita said.

He said Wal-Mart's executives visited Japan three times to
inspect Mycal stores to judge whether Wal-Mart's distribution
and management styles could work in the Japanese market.


SONY CORPORATION: Shares Drop After Slow Earnings Forecast
----------------------------------------------------------
After slashing their earnings forecasts Friday due to the recent
terrorist attacks in the U.S., the share prices of Sony
Corporation and NEC Corporation dropped dramatically Monday
morning, the Asian Wall Street Journal reported October 1.

As of 0018 GMT, Sony was ask-only at Y4,190, compared with its
Friday close of Y4,390. NEC, on the other hand, was down 3.4
percent at Y940.

Sony significantly lowered its prediction for consolidated net
profit by a whopping 89 percent and lowered by half its estimate
for operating profit, as its central electronics business
weakens.

Presently, Sony merely expects group net profit of Y10 billion
this business year, far worse than the Y90 billion profit
previously forecast.

DAEWOO MOTOR: Bupyeong Undergoes Changes
----------------------------------------
Daewoo's Bupyeong plant, excluded from takeover talks between
General Motors and creditor banks supposedly because of its low
productivity, aging facilities and a militant union, has been
undergoing changes for several months now, according to a
Digital Chosun Monday report.

The workforce, for example, has been cut by 42 percent, down to
4,118 from 7,000 in February.  The remaining workers are showing
more organization, are currently normalizing operations in the
factory and after a hard day's work, are sometimes doubling as
salesmen at night, there are even graphs to show their
performance as such.  They have also made efforts to reduce
inventory, only buying parts necessary for the targeted daily
production.

The plant is developing a new car, the T-200, to be marketed
February next year and is currently developing 2,000cc and
2,500cc XK engines to improve its mid-sized cars' performance.


HAITAI CONFECTIONARY: Acquired By Foreign Consortium
----------------------------------------------------
A foreign consortium composed of CVC Capital, JP Morgan and UBS
Capital paid a full W415 billion to acquire Haitai
Confectionary, Korea Herald reported Monday citing the spokesman
for the consortium.

The consortium, planning to launch Haitai Foods Company next
month by using assets of the Korean confectionary, made payment
after signing a deal with Haitai last July.

Haitai Confectionery was placed under receivership in May, after
defaulting on its loan payments.


HYUNDAI GROUP: 250 Employees To Be Hired By Units
-------------------------------------------------
Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) and Mipo Shipbuilding, both units
of the Hyundai Group, plan to hire 200 employees and 50
employees, respectively, in the fourth quarter.

However, since these two companies are soon to be separated from
the whole group, no so-called "pure" Hyundai affiliates have
recruitment plans, the Korea Herald reports Monday.

HHI and Mipo Shipbuilding's separation from the Hyundai Group
may push through in February 2002.


KOOKMIN BANK: Holds Meeting With Shareholders For Merger Talks
--------------------------------------------------------------
Kookmin Bank and Housing and Commercial Bank (H&CB) hold
shareholder's meetings Friday to approve their upcoming merger.
Kookmin's labor union, determined to block the meetings, called
the merger "unfair", the Korea Herald reported Friday.

During the meetings, shareholders of both banks are expected to
approve the merger contract, nominate directors and select
incorporators of the new entity. The merger is supposed to push
through as planned because the U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission to approve the consolidation have given the banks
only until September.

The merged entity is tentatively called Kookmin Bank and is
slated for a November opening.


SSANGYONG CEMENT: New Rescue Plan Drawn Up
------------------------------------------
Creditor banks of the ailing Ssangyong Cement have come up with
a rescue plan consisting of a debt-to-equity conversion totaling
W1.7 trillion and a fresh loan of W200 billion. The new plan is
supposed to be up for approval early next month, the Digital
Chosun reports October 1.

The proposal of the massive bailout plan came at the heels of
the creditors decision that the company would be able to get
back on its feet upon the injection of new funds.

ATLAS MINING: Posts Clarification Of News Item
----------------------------------------------
Atlas Consolidated Mining & Development Corporation has
disclosed a clarification regarding a news item published by the
Philippine Daily Inquirer on the Philippine Stock Exchange. The
article reported that "ATLAS Consolidated Mining and
Development Corp. is developing a multibillion-peso nickel
mining project in Palawan. Atlas said in a company document
obtained Friday that the Barong nickel project in Palawan is a
`well-advanced prospect with significant drilling and test pit
work having already taken place. With the Barong nickel project,
Atlas said it was considering 'various alternatives including
(the) sale of shipping grade (ore) material to certain Far East
markets.' Atlas said it also planned to develop a high pressure
acid leach system to process the lower nickel grade but high
cobalt ores at an annual rate of more than 50 million pounds of
nickel. x x x It is finalizing a prospectus, incorporating the
Palawan nickel project and the reopening of the Toledo copper
mine in tandem with its planned listing in the capital markets
of Australia and United Kingdom. Xxx"

Atlas Consolidated Mining and Development Corporation (AT), in
its letter dated 24 September 2001, clarified:

"xxx Please be advised that we have not caused the publication
of the news article and is not aware of any information
contained in the news item except that we do have claims to
nickel mining project located at Berong in Palawan. The
Operating Agreement we signed with Long Point Mining in 1995 to
undertake an extensive exploration at the property is under
arbitration due to failure of Long Point to comply with the
provisions of the agreement. Xxx"


NATIONAL POWER: One-Day Power Sales Earn P634M
----------------------------------------------
For the first eight months of the year, National Power
Corporation (Napocor) earned P634.02 million from its one-day
power sales (ODPS), still two-thirds short of the projected
full-year income target of P1 billion, the ABS-CBN reported
Monday.

The state-owned power company's august OPDS report stated that
total sales compared with the same period last year increased by
1.77 percent to 175 gigawatt-hours (gWh). In July, an increase
of 13.42 percent was recorded.

Under the ODPS, Napocor sells its unused capacity via an
electronic, on-line bidding system to its customers. These
customers should have at least a self-generation capacity of one
megawatt to be able to participate in the daily bidding.


NATIONAL STEEL: Search Is On For New Plant Operator
---------------------------------------------------
Since only one group, Voest Alpine, submitted lease proposals
for the mothballed facilities of the National Steel Corporation,
the Securities and Exchange Commission decided to reopen its
search for the most qualified group to undertake NSC's lease and
operation, the Manila Times reported Monday.

SEC chair, Lilia Bautista, said that she willing to entertain
new lease proposals from Allengoal Steel Farbrication Inc. and
Cathay Pacific Steel Company (Capasco). Allengoal did not show
up on the supposed Sept.21 submission of lease proposals because
it was convinced it had the support of National Steel's
Malaysian owner, Hotticks Investment Limited and its
stockholders. Capasco, on the other hand chose to back off its
offer pending the resolution of the Allengoal controversy.


UNIWIDE HOLDINGS: New Rehab Plan In Works
-----------------------------------------
Uniwide Holdings Incorporated issued a statement saying it is
finalizing a new rehabilitation plan. Without providing any
additional details, the company said the plans take into
consideration "the absence of an investor", the Asian Wall
Street Journal reported Sunday.

Once it finishes debt settlement with its three creditor banks,
United Coconut Planters Bank, Metropolitan Bank & Trust Company
and International Exchange Bank, Uniwide plans to submit its new
plans to regulators.

However, the company said that even in light of a new
rehabilitation plan, it will continue its search for an
investor.

ASIA FOOD: Reports Plunging H101 Earnings
-----------------------------------------
Due to the low prices of palm oil, Asia Food & Properties
Limited and Golden Agri-Resources Limited, both part of the
Sinar Mas Group of companies, reported a drastic drop in their
earnings for the first half of this year, the Asian Wall Street
Journal reported October 1.

Asia Food recorded a 4.3 percent decline in turnover to S $658.6
million for the first six months. It also posted a net operating
loss, after accounting for tax and extraordinary items, of a
staggering S$153.7 million.

Both companies attributed their losses to the current economical
and political events unfolding in the United States and Asia,
which according to them, "affects overall investor and consumer
confidence."  Moreover the depressed prices of crude palm oil
attributed to both of the companies' poor performance.


ASIA FOOD: Reports Half-Year Results, Financial Highlights
----------------------------------------------------------
Asia Food & Properties Limited, in a press release on the
Singapore Stock Exchange, announced its half-year reports and
financial highlights. Full text:

28 September 2001, Singapore - Asia Food & Properties Ltd (AFP)
today announced a Group net loss of approximately S$154 million
after tax, minority interests and extraordinary items, for the
half-year ended 30 June 2001. The Group reported a marginal
decline of four percent in its half-year turnover from
approximately S$688 million to S$659 million.

This was mainly due to a substantial decrease in the turnover of
the Group's Agri-business. However, this was offset by a
significant improvement in the Group's Food and Property
Divisions. The China Food Division reported a 14 percent
increase in its half-year turnover to S$88 million. The Property
Division posted a turnover of S$162 million, which was a 49
percent jump from half-year 2000.

Summarizing the half-year performance, Chairman and Chief
Executive Officer, Mr. Franky Widjaja said that the Group
operated under very tough conditions. "The financial performance
of the Group was adversely affected by the weak Crude Palm Oil
(CPO) price and Indonesian Rupiah."

The average international CPO price (CIF Rotterdam) during the
first half of year 2001 remained at US$240 per tonne. The
Indonesian Rupiah was at a low of Rupiah 11,380 (Year-end 2000:
Rupiah 9,650) against the US Dollar as at end June.

Accounting for some four percent of the world's CPO production,
the Group, through its Indonesia Agri-business Division,
maintained its position as one of the world's largest vertically
integrated palm oil plantation companies. Despite a lower
turnover, the Indonesia Agri-business Division increased its
half-year CPO production by approximately 20 percent to 460,000
tonnes, as a result of its maturing plantations.

The Group's Property Division continued to outperform the
market, especially in Indonesia where the Division further
strengthened its position as an industry leader. This was
reflected in the strong improvement of its half-year turnover.
However, the Group had exercised prudence in the reporting of
its half-year results, which included provisions for diminution
in value of assets and investments totaling S$72 million.

On the back of a higher half-year turnover of S$98 million, or
88 percent increase, the Indonesia Property Division earned an
operating profit of S$22 million. The continued good performance
of the Division can be attributed to the increased demand for
strata titles or long lease commercial space, which supply was
limited. There was further increase in the demand for
residential properties as well as rental income from office
space.

AFP Land Group reported a 105 percent jump in turnover to S$59
million, which was generated from the sale of non-core property
assets in Singapore.

Despite an operating loss, the China Food Division showed an
improvement in its turnover as a result of its aggressive
marketing and promotions.

However, Mr. Widjaja also sounded a cautionary note. "The
political and economic developments in the United States and
Central Asia may impact on the Group's second-half year
performance, especially given the location of its operations in
China, Indonesia, Singapore and Malaysia and its export markets
include India and Pakistan."

The following is a summary of the Group's prospects for the
second half of the year.

UPDATE ON DEBT RESTRUCTURING:

As at end August, the Group (including Golden Agri-Resources Ltd
and its subsidiaries) restructured US$107 million of its
outstanding debts and was in continuous discussions to
restructure its indebtedness. In September, an AFP subsidiary
restructured an additional outstanding debt of US$3.3 million,
bringing the total amount to US$110.3 million.

The directors are confident that with the continuing support of
its creditors and the CPO price recovery, the Group will be able
to meet its obligations and continue to operate. The Group will
continue to enhance value and strengthen its business through
strategic partnerships. The directors will make further
announcements as and when such partnerships are formally
completed.

In relation to its deposits with BII Bank Limited, Cook Islands
(BII Bank Ltd), since its 30 August corporate announcement, the
Group has withdrawn an additional US$8.2 million in September.
This brings the total withdrawn to US$24 million since end-March
2001. The Group is in negotiations with the bank on the
repayment schedule and the security package proposed by the
bank. Legal and financial due diligence are currently underway.

THAI MODERN: SET Delists Securities Trading
-------------------------------------------
The SET Board of Governors, pursuant to the power granted in
Section 171 (4) of Securities and Exchange Act B.E. 2535, has
passed a resolution to delist Thai Modern Plastic Industry
Public Company Limited (TM) securities effective 1 October 2001
onwards.

>From the SET's announcement on 8 June 1998, the securities of
Thai Modern Plastic Industry Public Company Limited (TM) were
classified as facing possible delisting because the company
disclosed false information in the financial statement as of
31 December 1997.

Later, TM participated in the delisting rehabilitation plan
under bankruptcy law and the South Satorn Planners CO., Ltd. was
appointed to be the plan administrator of TM.  In addition, the
plan administrator resubmitted the true financial statement as
of 31 December 1998 and disclosed to shareholders and investors
on 4 May 1999.

However, its 1997 annual financial report showed a negative
shareholders' equity of Bt4,965 million that faced possible
delisting.

On 17 August 2001, the plan administrator informed the sale
of core assets of TM to the SET. This will result in TM's
discontinuing its operations which generate no revenue from
operation after the liquidation of core assets and the proceeds
from selling assets will not be sufficient to repay to
creditors.

willingness to favorably consider conditions imposed by the PA
without imposing any significant conditions of their own, the PA
was able to complete the review and select a shortlist that same
day.  Four bidders have been short listed, comprising a mix
of both local and international energy companies.  A detailed
