AMP LIMITED: Suncorp Completes GIO Acquisition
----------------------------------------------
Suncorp Metway has completed the acquisition of the AMP
Limited's wholly-owned Australian general insurance operations.

Settlement of the transaction occurred today, as scheduled
at the announcement of the acquisition on June 15.
The total consideration was $1.26 billion.

Managing Director Steve Jones said Suncorp Metway was now the
proud owner of the GIO general insurance business and brand
name.

"This is great news for Suncorp Metway and for all our
customers, shareholders and employees. Suncorp Metway is now
Australia's equal second largest general insurance group, with
total premium income of approximately $2 billion, and more than
3 million customers.

"The acquisition will deliver significant economies of scale and
a national platform for growth.

"We have had the opportunity to examine the business thoroughly,
and are confident the acquisition will add value for all our
shareholders. At the time we announced the deal in June, we said
we believed the acquisition would provide a return on equity of
14% in the third year - 2004. We also said we expected to make
annualized savings of $80 million by year three. We remain
confident that those expectations will be met.

"While the recent tragic terrorist attacks in the United States
may cause a reduction in investment earnings in the current
half, due to declining global equity markets, neither Suncorp
Metway nor GIO has any insurance exposure to the World Trade
Center disaster. We also do not have any reinsurance
operations," said Jones. "These events do not have any bearing
on the long term viability or benefits of the GIO purchase," he
said.

"We are also certain that the acquisition will enable us to
deliver high levels of service for customers," he said.

Suncorp Metway is now well progressed in planning the
integration of its existing general insurance operations with
the GIO and AMP general insurance business being acquired. The
integration project covers all of the combined general insurance
operations, as well as support areas, with implementation
scheduled to commence in January. Suncorp Metway acquired the
economic interest in the business as of July 1, 2001, so its
profits will accrue to Suncorp Metway from that date.

All regulatory approvals regarding the acquisition have been
received.

ANACONDA NICKEL: Posts Murrin Murrin Nickel Progress Report
----------------------------------------------------------
Anaconda Nickel Limited announced that Murrin Murrin exceeded
budgeted production for the month of September producing 2,193
tons of nickel (111% of Budget) and 132 tons of cobalt (136% of
Budget). The first quarter of the fiscal year ended with record
quarterly production of 7,467 tons of Nickel (121% of previous
best quarter) and 407 tons of Cobalt (104% of previous best
quarter).

As planned, the plant shutdown started on September 21st and has
progressed on schedule with major work in the acid plant,
autoclaves and the mixed sulphides circuit being completed. The
shutdown is incorporating rectification work as part of the ramp
up schedule, statutory inspections, and repair work, if
required.

A significant milestone was reached during September with 129
tons of nickel produced in a 24 hr period, followed by a record
146 tons in the next 24 hr period. These production milestones
represent 105% and 119% of design capacity, respectively.

Ramping up of the Murrin Murrin Nickel Cobalt Operation
continues on schedule with the operation demonstrating
continuous improvement of quarterly nickel production for the
last 5 quarters.


ANSETT: Awaits Parent Company's Rescue
--------------------------------------
Ansett's future hinges on its parent Air New Zealand (ANZ)
recapitalization talks. Successful completion of negotiations is
expected within days, The Age reported Tuesday.

"Final agreement would depend on some sort of settlement over
how much ANZ might pay to meet the entitlements of Ansett
workers if several thousand workers in the Australian subsidiary
were made redundant," unidentified sources said.

Originally it was said Ansett's recapitalization plan, involving
a $NZ880 million ($A726.49 million) funding package, was merely
waiting final sign-off from the New Zealand Government and key
Air NZ shareholders, Brierley Investments and Singapore
Airlines. The big board changes are expected at ANZ.

In the meantime, Ansett's administrators began talks with up to
five parties that have expressed interest in buying the failed
airline's intercapital operations.

At the same time, 19 lessors and financiers, supplier of planes,
engines and spare parts, told the Federal Court that they were
anxious to get their planes and other assets back as soon as
possible. They agreed to meet the administrators and technical
assistants on Wednesday to draw up a schedule for final
maintenance and safety checks by Ansett's crews.

"The company had deployed extra staff to deal with the lessors,
and noted that Andersen partner Delma Thompson had spent most of
the past two weeks dealing only with matters concerning leased
planes," Ansett Administrator Mark Mentha said.

The administrators also won an extension for the next creditors'
meeting, tentatively after December 12, although administrators
must report on progress by early November.


ANSETT: Flies Again, 'Kick Start' Fares On Sale
-----------------------------------------------
Ansett flew again on the Sydney-Melbourne route starting
Saturday using five Airbus A320 aircraft and selling most of its
seats for $99 one-way "Kick-Start" fares.

The "Kick Start" fares go on sale 9:00am on 27 September 2001
and can be purchased via the Ansett web site at
www.ansett.com.au or Ansett Reservations on 13 13 00 (a $5
booking fee applies).

Dubbed "Ansett Mark II" the restart operation is the combined
effort of staff and management with the support of Ansett
Administrators Mark Mentha and Mark Korda.

The airline will be run by Ansett staff from Ansett terminals.
It will operate up to 32 flights daily between Melbourne and
Sydney with 144 seat Airbus A320 aircraft and will aim to add
services to Brisbane and Perth within 7-10 days.

DREAM HAVEN: Shuts Down Melbourne Operations
--------------------------------------------
About 120 staff members at Dream Haven Bedding and Furniture,
which was placed into administration in August, are jobless
since the South African-controlled company shuttered its
Melbourne operations on Friday, The Age reported Tuesday.

The staff will receive about 80 percent of the $1.7 million owed
in employee entitlements, including annual and long-service
leave and redundancy payments. However, creditors of the
manufacturer will be left out.

"Commonwealth Bank will receive about $400,000 of the $2.2
million it was owed," Administrator Andrew McLellan of Carson &
McLellan PPB said.

Unsecured creditors, such as bedding supplier Forty Winks, are
unlikely to recover anything once Dream Haven's assets were sold
at auction at the end of the month.

Controlling shareholder Renaissance Retail Group will be about
$2.5 million short and bedding retailer Capt'n Snooze will also
be left empty-handed, having spent $1 million on due diligence
and Dream Haven workers wage funding during this period. It
abandoned a proposed merger with the manufacturer two months
ago.

The manufacturer, which drifted $2.59 million into the red this
year on revenue of $14.6 million, is carrying an estimated $9
million in debt.

"Although 50 expressions of interests were lodged after the
company was put up for sale, no offers were made," McLellan
concluded.

HOLDIKO PERKASA: Cancels Sale Of Sulfindo Group
-----------------------------------------------
Holdiko and Indonesian Bank Restructuring Agency announced that
the sale of Holdiko's entire shareholding in Sulfindo Group that
began in May 2001 has been cancelled.

In the sale process of Sulfindo Group, discussions were first
initiated with Holdiko's joint venture partners, Sumitomo and
Tosoh, prior to offering the shares to other potential investors
through an open tender process.

However, the final bids submitted by the investors were far
below the preliminary bids as well as below the valuation range
submitted by our Financial Advisor. Together with IBRA, Holdiko
will review various steps that can be taken to increase
Holdiko/IBRA's recovery rate for this asset.

Sulfindo Group consists of 3 (three) consolidated companies
producing chlorine and caustic soda, ethylene dichloride (EDC)
and Vinyl Chloride Monomer (VCM), poly vinyl chloride (PVC).
Sulfindo Group's head office is located in Jakarta, with
production facilities located in Merak, West Java.

Other Holdiko Asset Sales:

Holdiko continues to proceed with the sale of 11additional asset
sales targeted for this fiscal year.

On Friday, September 21st, Holdiko received 10 preliminary bids
out of the 58 participating investors for PT Poli Contindo Nusa,
the steel drum manufacturer. IBRA and Holdiko will shortlist 9
of these investors to proceed to the final bidding stage.

>From 131 participating investors in the sale of the Sugar Group,
Holdiko received 11 preliminary bids last Friday, September
28th. 9 of these investors will be selected to proceed to the
final bidding stage.

Over the next 10 days, Holdiko and IBRA expect to receive
preliminary bids for the following assets:

Assets: Preliminary Bidding:

1. PT Indosiar Visual Mandiri Tbk       5 October 2001
2. PT Berdikari Sari Utama Flour Mills 9 October 2001
3. Guandong Jiangmen ISN Float Glass 12 October 2001


SEMEN GRESIK: Govt To Suffer US$780M Put Option Losses
------------------------------------------------------
The state will incur losses of up to US$780 million if the
government goes ahead with a put option by selling 51% of its
stake in PT Semen Gresik in order to get US$520 million from
Cemex SA de CV, Bisnis Indonesia reported Tuesday.

"Semen Gresik's normal value is US$1.3 billion as it contains
Semen Padang and Semen Tonasa. If Cemex SA de CV buys it for
US$520 million in the put option, there is a price of difference
of US$780 million.

"Therefore the government has to consider the potential loss
from the put option, which will burden the state budget by
US$780 million or Rp7.02 trillion with exchange rate assumption
of 9.000," Semen Padang's spin off review team member Asri
Mukhtar said.

Other potential losses from the put option is that the
government will not only lose three cement factories, but will
also lose opportunities, both in terms of SGG's potential and
production prospects.

"In other words, the government could get US$160 million more
from SGG's production in a year, compared to revenues resulting
from the put option. We can get more in the long term."


* Govt Weighs Six-Bank Merger Plan
----------------------------------
The Indonesian government is considering a plan to merge six
banks, Bank Bali, Bank Niaga, Bank Universal, Bank Prima
Express, Bank Media and Bank Patriot, under the control of the
Indonesian Bank Restructuring Agency, into one. The new bank
would be called Power Bank, Asia Pulse reported Monday.

Minister for state companies Laksamana Sukardi agreed in
principle with the plan to combine six recapitalized banks, a
bank source said.

Sikardi, however, said that there has not been talks between
those banks and the government regarding the merger plan.

"The government has not given an official statement about the
plan as it is still studying the pros and cons surrounding the
idea," Sukardi said.

MITSUBISHI MOTORS: Appoints CEO For Mitsubishi Europe
-----------------------------------------------------
Stefan Jacoby, formerly a senior executive of Volkswagen AG, has
been appointed by Mitsubishi Motors Corporation to the post of
President and Chief Executive Officer of Mitsubishi Motors
Europe B.V., the Daily Yomiuri reported Monday.

Mitsubishi Motors is presently implementing a restructuring plan
throughout its entire group. The plan involves the company
aiming to return its European operations to breakeven in fiscal
2003, to be achieved by:

(1) Reducing costs through organizational and other
structural reforms,
(2) Introducing long-term product strategies to boost sales,
and,
(3) Strengthening local production activities with the
introduction of the Z-Car model.

Stefan Jacoby, an MBA graduate of the University of Cologne, is,
according to the report, quite knowledgeable about the
automobile business and quite experienced too, having been
working previously in the United States, Europe and Japan.


MYCAL CORP: Being Eyed By Several Companies
-------------------------------------------
Mycal Corporation, which filed for protection from creditors
last month, has drawn the attention of more than 10 Japanese and
foreign companies, Kyodo News reported Tuesday.

French retail giant Carrefour, Wal-Mart Stores, even Japan's
Ito-Yokado and Aeon Company are reportedly interested in taking
over the assets of the failed Japanese retail chain. U.S.
investment funds Ripplewood Holdings LLC and Cerberus Group are
likewise showing interest.

Some or all of Mycal's assets may be auctioned as early as next
week to sort out applicants and some 30 companies are already
slated to participate. Mycal plans to hold a few more auctions
to determine a buyer for its operations, which may start
November.

Mycal filed for court protection from creditors last September
14 with Y1.39 trillion total liabilities at its parent company
and a group debt of Y1.74 trillion.


SONY CORP: CEO Sure Of Achieving Profit Goal
-------------------------------------------
Sony Corporation's Chairman and CEO Nobuyuki Idei is confident
that the videogame business has started making profits which
should continue until the end of the year, the Asian Wall Street
Journal reported Monday.

Idei attributes his confident forecast to the fact that
Microsoft's Corporation "X-Box", another video game console,
won't be available in Japan until next year, while Nintendo's
"Gamecube", still another video game console launched last
month, wasn't making any progress in the market.

Even with the recent terrorist attacks, Idei says that it's
impact wouldn't be that big considering that people tend to stay
home nowadays, largely benefiting family-oriented entertainment
businesses.

Sony plans worldwide shipments of 20 million units for
Playstation 2; 10 million units of the much older Playstation 1;
and 170 million pieces of game software.


UFJ HOLDINGS: Posts 1H Net Loss On Stocks
-----------------------------------------
The Mainichi Shimbum reported Monday that UFJ Holdings Inc., has
reported losses totaling several tens of billions of yen for the
fiscal first half which ended September 30.

UFJ is the holding company resulting from the integration of
operations last April between Sanwa Bank, Tokai Bank, and Toyo
Trust & Banking Company. These three banks announced their
restructuring program last March.

Currently undergoing reconstruction, the holding company's loss
outlook will reflect Y300 billion in appraisal losses on the
three bank's stock holdings.

week. GM delegates would tour all Daewoo's 22 domestic and
overseas plants and review the finances of the Korean automaker.

GM has taken over Daewoo's operations through a memorandum of
understanding signed by the US carmaker and the latter's
creditors. A final deal between both parties is expected at
year's end.

GM is supposed to take over four Daewoo plants, which include
two from South Korea, the latter having a combined total output
of 500,000 vehicles.

of the Proceeds other than for the core business of UHD;

     (ii) approval from the shareholders of UHD is required for
the utilization of the Proceeds as stated and any variation of
more than 25% of the original utilization. If the proposed

   (e) the issue price of the shares to be issued for the
Proposed Debt Restructuring and the Acquiree Companies/Muar Land
shall be fixed based on the theoretical "ex-all" price or the
indicative issue price of RM1.00 per share, whichever is the
higher compared to the issue price of RM1.00 per share as
proposed. As such, MIMB is required to inform the SC of the
final price to be fixed and the final number of shares to be

Parties in UHD arising from the Proposals including the Proposed
Rights Issue.

   (f) A moratorium shall be imposed on up to a maximum
71,379,000 shares by the respective vendors of the Acquiree

or 50% of the shares arising from the Proposed Acquisitions to
be received by the vendors of the Acquiree Companies/Muar Land
as stipulated in the SC's Policy and Guidelines on Issue/Offer
of Securities (Guidelines). As such, the vendors are not allowed

more than one-third of the total shares on every subsequent

to be imposed on the vendors, i.e. BHB, BDSB, MRSB, MLSB, Ng
Sing Hwa, Ng Chee Hua, Ng Kwee Hua, Chong Thin Choy, Yap Hee
Tiong, Joseph Soon Teik Leong, Beh Poh Sim, Teh Kim Teck, Wei
Han Sdn Bhd, VATSB, Gan Chin Yap and Haji Omar Hj. Mohd Esa.
However, with respect to paragraph 3 (e) above, MIMB is required
to inform the SC on the final number of shares to be imposed
under the moratorium.

The moratorium condition is also imposed on each shareholder of
the private company or subsequently on each ultimate
shareholder. As such, each of the said individual shareholders
or ultimate shareholders are required to provide written
undertakings that they will not sell, transfer or assign their
respective shareholdings in the private company(ies) concerned
as long as the moratorium is effective.

   (g) In the future, the promoters, directors and the
substantial shareholders of the Acquiree Companies/Muar Land are
not allowed to be involved in any businesses/ property
development projects which would give rise to a conflict of
interest, whether direct or indirectly, with the business of the
UHD Group. Each of the said parties is required to disclose in
the abridged prospectus and circular to shareholders their
existing interest/involvement in businesses that would give rise
to a conflict of interest with the business of the UHD Group and
steps taken or to be taken to avoid it.

   (h) The promoters of the Acquiree Companies/Muar Land are
required to be involved in the full time operations/management
of UHD and are not allowed to be involved in the full time
operations/management of their own personal businesses.

   (i) The directors of UHD will have to cease their involvement
in the operations/management of BHB, whether directly or
indirectly, if they are involved in the operations/management of
UHD, whether directly or indirectly.

   (j) Any future transactions to be entered into between the
UHD Group and parties or companies related to the said promoters
and directors of the Acquiree Companies/Muar Land should be
undertaken on normal commercial terms and not based on terms
that are detrimental to the UHD Group. Thus, the Audit Committee
of UHD must review the terms of the said transactions and the
directors of UHD must ensure that full disclosure is made in the
annual report of UHD yearly.

   (k) UHD is required to comply with all the requirements of
the SC Guidelines relating to the Proposals.

UHD's application to obtain approval on the proposed transfer of
its enlarged issued and paid-up share capital from the Second
Board to the Main Board of the KLSE was not considered because
UHD did not fulfill the requirement of the SC Guidelines whereby
the profit after taxation for the latest financial year must not
fall below RM8 million. The SC has informed that the said
proposed transfer will only be considered after UHD complies
with the said requirements.

The Board of Directors of UHD and the vendors of the Acquiree
Companies/Muar Land are considering the terms and conditions of
the SC's approval.

NATIONAL POWER: Transmission Assets Sale To Earn Napocor US$2B
--------------------------------------------------------------
Business World reported Tuesday that the sale of the
transmission assets of the National Power Corp. (Napocor),
currently being handled by National Transmission Company
(Transco), is expected to generate at least US$2 billion.

The figure could go higher than US$2 billion, depending on the
mode of privatization proceeding that is implemented, Transco
president Asisclo T. Gonzaga said.

Moreover, Gonzaga said the subsequent sale of Napocor's
subtransmission assets to distribution firms will generate an
added P12 billion. Subtransmission assets are those low voltage
transmission facilities that link the national transmission
system and the distribution system of utilities.


PICOP RESOURCES: Shuts Down Mill Operations
-------------------------------------------
Picop Resources Inc. will shut down its wood processing plant,
pulp mill and allied operations by the month's end due to the
company's inability to compete with cheap, imported products,
the Inquirer News Service reports Monday.

The country's largest integrated manufacturer of wood and paper
products also blamed the closures on the delay in the approval
of its annual operating plan by the Department of Environment
and Natural Resources. That delay deprived the company adequate
access to its raw materials.

The closure will affect 8,000 employees involved in Picop's
operations.

Formerly known as Paper Industries Corporation, the country's
biggest newsprint producer was listed in 1973 and later
diversified into particle board manufacturing and palm oil
plantation.

The company had total assets of P5.84 billion, against
liabilities totaling B2.79 billion. Its biggest stockholder is
Far East Cement Corporation.

Product

The Company's major products are:

1. Two-Piece Cylinder: The product comprises of 2 parts, which
are top shell and bottom shell. Each part is made from one-piece
steel. When these two parts are welded together, there is a
circumference seam coming from such welding.

2. Three-Piece Cylinder: The product comprises of top shell,
bottom shell, like two-piece cylinder, and body that make a
cylinder shape. The body part is made from rolled steel sheet
having one weld  parallel to the longitudinal axis of cylinder.
By assembling of three-piece cylinder, the water capacity of
cylinder will be as much as needed.

Products of the company received quality certification from
Thailand Industrial Standard Institute of the Ministry of
Industry and also received ISO 9002 Certification. The Company
sells its products under "SMPC" trademark and the brand name of
customers.

The Company started to emphasize on export to compensate for the
domestic sales which has been impacted from the economic crisis
since 1997. Therefore, the proportion of export sales increases
steadily. In 2000, the proportion of export sales accounts for
60% of the total sales. For the first quarter of 2001 such
proportion decreased to 40% due to the increase of domestic
sales from a major customer.

Production Capacity and Cost of Production

The full capacity of the company during 1997-1999 is at
1,440,000 cylinders per year(during 1995-1996 is at 2,500,000
cylinders per year) which is the capacity of the Bangkok plant
only, not including the capacity of Lampoon plant which stopped
operation since 1997 resulted from the slow down of economic of
the country. The capacity utilization rates are at 56%, 45% and
75% in 1997, 1998 and 1999 respectively. We could see that the
capacity utilization rate is in a good trend in 1999 follow
the increase in sales.

For the year 2000, the full capacity of the Company increase to
1,800,000 cylinders per year due to the extension of working
hour from 1 shift to 2 shifts per day in some stages of
production process in order to support the expansion of sales.
The capacity utilization rate is as high as 96%.  For the
year 2001, the full capacity of the Company increase to
2,500,000 cylinders per year due to the full extension of
working hours and the modification and additional installment of
some machines in order that the production process can work
continuously.

The Company has a plan to move its machines from Lampoon to
Bangkok in the second quarter of 2001. In the first quarter of
2001, the utilization rate is at 80% The important component of
production cost is major raw materials which are hot-rolled
steel sheets. In the past, before the year 1996, the Company
imported raw materials from aboard. This caused the company to
have costs for the reservation of inventory of raw materials for
production. However, since the end of 1996 the Company started
to use domestic raw materials. This is because the local
producers are able to manufacture hot-rolled steel sheets, which
have the same quality as that from aboard. Therefore, the
Company has the flexibility to purchase in terms of volume and
price.

Currently, the proportion of purchasing raw materials from the
sources in the country and aboard is 70:30. Major source of raw
materials is as follow:

  - Domestic source - Sahaviriya Steel Industry Plc.

  - Foreign source - Japan, India, Korea and China

2.  Marketing and Competition

LPG cylinder market in Thailand has few producers which are only
major producers operating business for a long period of time.
These producers gain major portion of market shares. The
products have the near feature and quality. The competition,
therefore, emphasizes on services, on-time delivery and good
relationship between producers and customers. Normally, the
domestic market has an average growth rate around 10% per year.
However, in the end of 1997-1998, the cylinder consumption
decreases so much following the economic recession. On average,
it decreased 50-60% per year. From 1999 onwards, the demand for
LPG cylinder increase a lot, due to the government measurements
to eliminate illegal cylinders from the market ( calling as "
"white cylinders")

As for the market situation in 2000, the demand of LPG cylinder
expanded 40% in accordance with the economic improving and the
serious measurement of illegal cylinder elimination. It is
expected that the domestic demand will expand around 20% per
year in the future (Forecasted by marketing department of SMPC)

>From the decrease in the demand of LPG cylinders in the past,
the domestic producers have emphasized on export to compensate
for the domestic market. In addition, the weakness of baht
currency has made the export market expanding. During 1997-2000
the quantity and value of export cylinder has expanded, on
average, 14% per year. Currently, the major importers are
Singapore, England, Vietnam, Australia, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, New
Zealand and South Africa. Most of producers trend to expand
export market to Asia and Africa. It is expected that the
consumption of new LPG cylinders will expand around 30% in Asia
region and 20% in Africa and Caribbean Islands region. The ex-
work price will not be changed so much due to the high
competition situation. (Forecasted by marketing department of
SMPC)

There are 5 major producers who can produce LPG cylinders that
comply with Thailand Industrial Standard Institute, Ministry of
Industry. The company has the highest market shares both
domestic sales and export sales, which are 40% and 60%
respectively. The second and third runners are Cheun Siri Co.,
Ltd. and Industrial Gas Cylinder Co., Ltd.

3.  Summary of causes that made the Company's stock subject to
be delisted

  3.1   During 1992-1994 the company expanded its capacity at
the existing plant and built a new plant in Lampoon, which has
been finished in the end of 1995. The capacity of the Company
increased from 1,200,000 cylinders per year in 1994 to 2,500,000
cylinders per year in 1996. However, the economic recession has
caused the capacity utilization rate decrease to 40%.
The aforesaid investment could not generate revenue and profit
as projected. The company incurred so much loss and had to
terminate, temporarily, the Lampoon plant since January 1, 1997.

  3.2   As for the investment to expand the production capacity,
the Company borrowed money from the financial institutions. Most
of them are short-term loans. Thus, the Company incurred
high level of interest expenses. Couple with the slow down of
revenue causing by economic recession, the Company could not pay
for the loan on schedule in 1996. The creditors, therefore,
could call the Company to repay for the remaining loan
immediately. In 1997, the Company faced with the financial
liquidity problem and ,thus, could not repay for the overdrafts.
As of the first quarter of 2001, the Company has total
liabilities of 766.74 million baht.

  3.3     The Company may have the liabilities arising from the
guarantee of borrowing of related company, which is Sahamitr
Steel Co., Ltd. by the amount of 1,505 million baht. Currently,
the Company was sued as the guarantor of related company by the
amount of 1,153 million baht. This may cause the auditor report
still has the conditional opinion.


4.      Objectives of the rehabilitation plan

  4.1     In order that the business of the Company can survive
and the Company can have the appropriate financial structure so
that it can receive benefit from the recovery of economic
in the future which will be beneficial for the shareholders,
financial institution creditors and  employees of the Company.

  4.2     In order that the Company can maintain the listing
status on the Stock Exchange of Thailand.

  4.3     In order that the financial institutions and
shareholders can receive returns more than that of the case the
Company is in bankruptcy or terminates its business.

  4.4     Avoid the bankruptcy, which will negatively impact the
shareholders, creditors and employees.

5.      Scope of action for rehabilitation

  5.1     The Company plan to procure raw materials more
restrictedly. The Company will change its strategy to order more
domestic raw materials in order to have the flexibility in the
procurement  of raw materials at the suitable price. Whereas
there is no impact to the quality of goods.

  5.2     The Company plan to control all steps of production
process from raw materials using to stock keeping in order to
control the scrap rate in all production processes and decrease
cost of stock keeping. In addition, it will give knowledge to
employees dealing with the production process to decrease the
scrap rate of raw materials.

  5.3     The Company will improve the efficiency of production
in order to have competitive cost. For example, adding some
machines in certain departments to smooth the production
process, improving the process to recycle the used raw materials
and improving the process of pumping steel sheets.

  5.4     In terms of marketing, the company will emphasize on
the expansion of market base, especially the foreign market in
various regions in order to increase revenue and reduce
the dependence on any single market. Since the company faced
with financial problem and fell in the delisting criteria, the
company started to adjust its marketing plan to emphasize on
export in order to compensate with decreasing revenue in
domestic resulted from economic problem.

The proportion of revenue from export increased by the rate of
45%, 4% and 52% in 1998, 1999 and 2000 respectively. In
addition, the Company emphasized on creating long-term good
relationship with customers, couple with the improvement on
returns to employees and agent to motivate for sale increasing
and customer base expanding.

  5.5     The Company agreed to bring its debt restructuring
plan with financial institution creditors enter into debt
restructuring process under the supervision of Corporate Debt
Restructuring Advisory Committee (CDRAC). The Company has signed
on the agreement with the creditors on March 5, 2001. The
meeting of creditors approved the debt-restructuring plan on
May 21, 2001. The Company and the creditors have signed on debt
restructuring agreement on June 29, 2001. The content of the
plan can be summarized as follows:

      On May 31, 2001, before debt restructuring, the Company
has total liabilities of Bt801.11 million divided into loan of
Bt505.19 million and accrued interest of Bt295.92 million. In
addition, it has debt obligation from the guarantee with Bangkok
Bank as the guarantor for Sahamitr Steel Co., Ltd. by the amount
of 1,350.53 million baht. The negotiation of debt restructuring
will include this part of debt guarantee. The Company agreed to
repay  for accrued interest calculated by the interest rate
of 8.00% per year for the period of 8 months beginning from the
date that the Company fails to repay debt to each creditor. Such
amount is Bt27.047 million, which has to repay to the creditors
on the date of signing debt-restructuring agreement. The Company
has already repaid by the amount of Bt18.86 million. The
remaining amount, which has to repay, is 8.19 million. In
addition, the Company agreed to repay for principle to the
creditors on the date of signing agreement by the amount
of Bt50.52 million.

       As for the remaining amount of accrued interest (total
amount of accrued interest deducted by the amount agreed to
repay) of Bt287.73 million, the creditors will forgive to the
Company when the Company has already complied completely with
the agreement. (on the 10th year)

      The remaining amount of debt of Bt1,805.20 million will be
allotted into 3 group as follows:

Group A      Secured Debt            Bt241.37  Million
Group B      Unsecured Debt          Bt213.30  Million
Group C      Debt from corporate guarantee in favor of Sahamitr
                     Steel Co., Ltd. Bt1,350.53 Million

                                     1,805.20  Million Baht

Debts in Group A and Group B will be converted into long-term
loan having the interest rate of MLR of Bangkok Bank public
Company Limited. Group C debt arising from corporate guarantee
will have no interest. The Company has to repay for these three
groups of debt from its cash flow based on earning capability in
the proportion of 51 : 26 : 23. This will help improve the
Company's financial structure. The company will receive benefit
from the extension of payment period to 10 years and  the
deduction of interest expenses. This will have a good result for
the ability to plan for marketing and production.

        As for Group C debt, if Sahamitr Steel Co., Ltd., which
negotiates debt restructuring plan directly with the creditors,
can agree and sign on the agreement of debt restructuring, the
company can use the repayment from such plan to reduce the debt
arising from guarantee (Group C debt).

However, if Sahamitr Steel Co., Ltd. can not meet the conditions
which results in the cancellation of debt restructuring
agreement, the creditors have the right to add back such
deduction into Group C debt.

        According to debt restructuring plan, the Company will
receive repayment for the loan to Sahamitr Steel Co., Ltd. by
converting debt into capital in Sahamitr Steel Co., Ltd. for
repayment. Sahamitr Steel Co., Ltd will issue new shares within
5 years from the date of signing debt-restructuring agreement.
The first issuance is within July 1, 2006.  Moreover, Sahamitr
Steel Co., Ltd has to issue a letter to certify that it will
issue new share within 5 year for repayment to the Company. In
case the Company will not accept the repayment by converting
debt into share capital, it has to receive consent in letter
from Group C creditors.

Therefore, the SET will allow trading of SUE's securities under
the REHABCO sector from 3 October 2001. The issue may affect the
stock price of the company in the market. Therefore, according
to Clause 24 (3) and (6) of the regulation on trading, clearing
and settlement for listed securities 1999, the ceiling and floor
limits on the main board of SUE's securities will be temporarily
removed on 3 October 2001 to allow the market mechanism to work

The SET asks the company's shareholders and investors to follow
the company's voluntary delisting progress.


THAI PETROCHEMICAL: Fails To Pay Interest Payment
-------------------------------------------------
Thai Petrochemical Industry PCL (TPI) advised that due to
liquidity problems caused in part by the Government's decision
to require petroleum refining companies to increase strategic
oil reserves, TPI did not make the interest payment due under
its restructuring plan on 1 October 2001.

Pending the outcome of discussions with the company's
financiers, TPI expects to pay this interest payment within the
five-day period allowed for in the Restructuring Plan to cure
the default.


TPI POLENE: Lenders Seek Alternative Proposals
----------------------------------------------
The planned takeover of TPI Polene Plc by Cemex of Mexico is on
hold following a decision by creditors to consider proposals
offered by other multinational cement companies, Asia
Intelligence Wire reported Tuesday.

Last week, Cemex signed an agreement with Prachai Leophairatana,
TPI Polene's chief executive and administrator of its business
rehabilitation plan, committing US$300 million to acquiring
72.67% stake. It also proposed discounting payments by 36% to
creditors holding debts of less than $3 million, and creditors
approve a 12% write-down for other creditors after the deal.

"The creditors had planned to make a decision on the Cemex
proposal Tuesday, but now they wanted to look at other options.
I am not saying that the Cemex proposal has been disqualified
but the creditors want to see more choices so they are
considering the proposals of other investors in parallel with
that of Cemex," Bangkok Bank president Chartsiri Sophonpanich
said.

Bangkok Bank is one the cement company's three core creditors,
along with Kreditanstalt fur Wiederaufbau (KfW) of Germany and
Krung Thai Bank. KfW is the largest creditor with 30% of debts
totaling $800 million, Bangkok Bank holds 12% of the debts and
Krung Thai Bank 10%.

Chartsiri said that the most important factor that the creditors
will consider is the pricing and amount of debt repayments.

The other multinationals that had earlier proposed
recapitalization plans to TPI Polene are Lafarge and Ciments
Francais of France and Holcim (formerly Holderbank) of
Switzerland.

In addition, he said, the proposal should contain a clear
strategy on a plan to generate working capital after the debt
repayment.
