BEACONSFIELD GOLD: General Meeting to be Held On November 21
------------------------------------------------------------
R J C Catto of Beaconsfield Gold NL issued this general meeting notice:

"I attach a notice of General Meeting in regard to the above company of
which you are a shareholder. You may be aware that Receivers and Managers
were appointed to the company by Bank West on 25 June 2001. Since that time
it is by no means apparent that the remaining Directors have achieved
anything in terms of facilitating arrangements which might put value back
into our shares. Certainly there has been no communication with shareholders
and as time passes and the Receiver advertises "our" asset for sale my real
concern is that the asset, principally in the form of a share in the Joint
Venture, will
be sold to others who will have no interest in delivering any
residual value to the existing shareholders.

"A fairly similar picture exists in regard to the other Joint Venture party
Allstate Exploration NL where an administrator has been appointed by its
directors. Again communication with Allstate shareholders as to what is
happening is minimal.

"I, like a number of other Beaconsfield Gold shareholders, am of the view
that a complete change in the Board is really necessary at this time. New
faces, capable of conducting negotiations with bankers, receivers,
administrators, and potential equity and debt providers, may be able to put
value back into our equity. Some time ago, the Sydney boutique merchant bank
Westchester Corporate Finance indicated a preparedness to work on a
contingent fee basis. Discussions to date with the incumbent Board in terms
of effecting changes in the Board, which changes Westchester also believes
are necessary, have achieved little.

"Some weeks ago several shareholders holding in excess of 5% of the shares
delivered a notice under the Corporations Act that they propose to call a
meeting of shareholders at least two months thence. The Directors have not
sought to convene any meeting, and so we are proceeding to convene the
meeting ourselves and at our expense.

"We ask that you forward your proxies as soon as possible so that we may be
able to establish to the current Directors that it is the wish of the
forthcoming meeting that there be a change. We believe it is in everyone's
interests if the Board changes sought occur as soon as possible, and we
would much prefer to see the changes made well before the date of the
proposed meeting.

"We believe that the future of the company can be best ensured by the
involvement of motivated, forward thinking individuals who are not
associated in the minds of future lenders and equity providers with the past
events which got the company in its present predicament. As a result of this
meeting it is important that a clear change of control be established for
all to see. Please don't accept the line that the proposed new directors are
taking the company and all its value. At the moment the company has no value
and without decisive action we will be left with nothing but a full tax
write-off.

"If you have an email address, we would appreciate if you were able to send
it to us together with information about holdings for which you speak. We
should then be able to communicate with you by email in future. We see that
as a method of reducing costs and improving communications with all those
who are interested and would like to know more of the future developments.

"The mining operations at Beaconsfield continue and we believe that gold
production has been pleasantly high. The problem is of course that the value
from that production is accruing principally for the benefit of the
accountants, lawyers and bankers and the sooner actions can be taken which
bring the assets under the direct control of the Directors for the benefit
of the shareholders, in a manner in which the bankers are sufficiently
placated, the better.

"There is no doubt that there will be a need for further equity into the
project but these are aspects of "the going forward" which will be decided
by the Directors once they are in a position to know the full position of
the company.

"Should you have any questions I am able to be contacted on (02) 9251 6200
which number goes to my pager after hours."

BEACONSFIELD GOLD NL (RECEIVER AND MANAGER APPOINTED)

By order of the members of Beaconsfield Gold (Receiver and Manager
Appointed) (the Company) named below who together hold at least 5 percent of
the votes that may be cast at a general meeting of the Company, and in
accordance with section 249F of the Corporations Act.

Notice is hereby given that a general meeting of the members of
Beaconsfield Gold NL (Receiver and Manager Appointed) will be held at The
Rugby Club, First Floor, 31A Pitt Street, Sydney, New South Wales 2000 on
Wednesday 21 November 2001 at 10.00am.

DAVNET LIMITED: Posts Directors' Letter, Notice of AGM
------------------------------------------------------
Davnet Limited posted:

LETTER FROM DIRECTORS

"This Information Memorandum contains a number of components, all of which
are important and should be considered. Immediately following this letter
you will find a Notice of Annual General Meeting, an Explanatory Memorandum
and an Independent Expert's Report. A loose-leaf Proxy Form is also included
in the package, as is the Annual Report.

"As you may be aware from a series of announcements to the ASX, your Company
proposes to issue convertible notes (with options) to Cravelle (Belgium) SA
(Cravellea wholly owned subsidiary of The Investment Company of China (ICC),
and, potentially, to other parties. The convertible note issue is part of a
re-capitalization of Davnet Limited, a process which commenced on 10 August
2001 when the ICC Group, an investor group with minority shareholding
interests in Davnet agreed to lend funds to Davnet.

"As the proposed issue of convertible notes and options potentially would
give the ICC Group a relevant interest in over 20% of the voting shares of
the Company, and as the issue involves Davnet placing in excess of 15% of
its capital, in accordance with the Corporations Act and the ASX Listing
Rules, the issue of those securities trust be approved by Davnet
shareholders in general meeting.

"It is important for Shareholders to understand the background to this
proposal. In brief, the issue is of a minimum of $3 million of convertible
notes (with attached options) to the ICC Group and, at the ICC Group's
election, up to a further $2 million to be issued to the ICC Group or to
investors nominated by the ICC Group. The ICC Group will pay for the notes
it receives by using funds advanced under the existing loan facility it has
in place with the Company, which are repayable upon any issue of securities
by the Company. In addition, if necessary, the ICC Group and other investors
will also provide a cash top-up to the extent that the subscription amount
for the notes is greater than the funds advanced under the existing loan
facility. The convertible note issue is primarily a replacement of the ICC
Group's short term loan facility with a longer term (three year) facility
which has a right of conversion to equity.

"An important adjunct to the convertible note issue is that if the issue is
approved by Davnet shareholders at the annual general meeting, then Davnet
intends to proceed with a rights issue of ordinary shares. The ICC Group has
stated its intention to underwrite $2 million of that rights issue (such
amount to include taking up its entitlements). Any underwriting by
the ICC Group would be on the basis of an underwriting agreement, the terms
of which have not been negotiated or prepared as at the date of this
Information Memorandum. The final decision to proceed with a rights issue,
and the terms of such issue, will depend on an assessment by the Board of
Davnet of all relevant circumstances prevailing at the time, including the
review of asset holdings and group structure currently in progress.

"If the convertible note issue is not approved, your Board is unlikely to
proceed with the rights issue referred to above, and would need to further
consider the Company's continuing funding arrangements.

"The purpose of the Information Memorandum is to provide you with the
necessary information to assist you in deciding whether to approve the
convertible note issue and the other matters at the annual general meeting
of the Company to be held on 27 November 2001.

"The Company commissioned an Independent Expert's Report from PKF Corporate
Advisers Pty Limited ("PKF"), which addresses the arguments for and against
the convertible note issue. In conclusion, PKF's opinion is that the
transaction is fair and reasonable to Shareholders of the Company not
associated with the ICC Group and that on balance it provides the Company
and its Shareholders with significant advantages. PKF's findings are
contained in the Independent Expert's Report, and summarized in Section 3.4
of the Explanatory Memorandum.

"Details of each of the resolutions, including those relating to the
convertible note issue, appointment of directors, issuing options to
directors and ratifying previous issues of shares and options, are set out
in Section 2 of the Explanatory Memorandum and also in the Notice of
Meeting.

"Each of the Directors who are independent of the ICC Group, being Messrs
Walker, Rule and Simart recommends that shareholders approve resolution 6.

"If you are unable to attend the general meeting, please complete and return
the enclosed proxy form."

on the terms and conditions set out in the Convertible Note
Subscription Agreement described in the Explanatory Memorandum, and

(d) the shares the subject of the options issued to Equity Partners  Asia
Limited (EPA) and the shares the subject of the options that  may be issued
to Alexander Adamovich referred to in resolutions 7(b) and 8(b)

converted by Cravelle and all of the options issued to EPA described above
are exercised by EPA and all of the other options described above are issued

Companies with which Cravelle is associated currently have relevant

to Cravelle and Alexander
Adamovich and the potential issue of ordinary shares to EPA upon the
exercise of options would increase the potential voting power in the Company
of Cravelle, EPA and Alexander Adamovich and their associates to more than
20%, irrespective of whether the voting power of any of the abovementioned
parties or any other member of the Company may have changed between:

(i) the date of this Notice of Meeting and the date of the Annual General
Meeting; and

(ii) the date of the Annual General Meeting and the date that the
convertible notes and options described above are issued."

INVESTORS FORUM: ASIC Freezes Assets, Suspends License
------------------------------------------------------
The Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) has obtained
orders from the Supreme Court of New South Wales, freezing the assets of
Australian Investors Forum Pty Ltd and suspending its dealer's license.

The Court orders also freeze the assets of Dennis Ralph Anthony, Martin
Lloyd-Cocks, Dominic Luvara, Peter Victor Topperwien and Bud Shaheen and a
number of companies owned and controlled by them. The orders also require
the five men to surrender their passports.

Australian Investors Forum is a licensed securities dealer and it runs an
investment club offering members placements in new company floats.

ASIC commenced the ex-parte proceedings to protect investors' funds.

Some $2.5 million of investors' money was raised for investment in
Australian Investors Forum and a related company. ASIC alleges that, without
the investors' knowledge, millions of shares in those companies have been
issued at a 99.95 per cent discount to companies owned or controlled by
Messrs Anthony, Lloyd-Cocks, Luvara and Topperwien.

ASIC also alleges that Mr Anthony is an undischarged bankrupt who controls
Australian Investor Forum and a number of related companies. ASIC alleges
that some investors' money has been improperly used to pay Mr Anthony's
bankruptcy debts of approximately $150,000.

ASIC also alleges that Australian Investors Forum has paid substantial
amounts of money from its trust account and general trading account to
related companies in circumstances where there is no justification for the
payments.

ASIC has also initiated proceedings against Sage Global Fund Ltd, a publicly
listed company whose directors are Messrs Lloyd-Cocks, Luvara and
Topperwien. ASIC alleges that Sage Global Fund has paid $560,000 of
investors' funds to an Australian Investors Forum-related company,
Techlogica Pty Ltd, which has no business, employees or assets.


PRESTON RESOURCES: Posts Bulong Operations' Production Report
-------------------------------------------------------------
Preston Resources Limited posted Bulong Operations Pty Ltd production report
for September 2001:

Nickel and cobalt dispatched for sale amounted to 603 and 31 tonnes
respectively. Circuit inventories of nickel decreased by about 51tonnes for
the month. Plant throughput was affected by mechanical availability in the
leach circuit with unscheduled maintenance being required as a consequence
of blockages of the autoclave feed pumps. Restrictions in the partial
neutralization circuit also affected plant performance.

The recently introduced roster system has shown its effectiveness in many
areas including safety and training.

Modifications to the ore preparation circuit have resulted in
rejection of waste material and consequent upgrading of leach feed Ni and Co
values.

SAFETY AND ENVIRONMENT

Two significant injuries occurred during the month. One incident
resulted in an operator receiving an electric shock. He was admitted to
hospital for observation and discharged the following day. The second
incident involved a sprained ankle, which resulted in the operator being
placed on light duties.

92,110     107,832       -15,721         -14.6%    Co (t)

Nickel metal output was below plan due to:

* Poor leach throughput   (14 percent below budget)

* Lower leach feed grades ( 4 percent below budget)

* Lower plant recovery    ( 2 percent below budget)

Leach plant availability was higher than plan, at 93.7 percent.

603 tonnes of nickel were available for sale, including a drawdown from
inventory of 51 tonnes. New metal produced for the period was 552 tonnes.

MINING COSTS

The contract mining costs were below budget due to the change in the mining
schedule and resultant bulk mining of waste material from Foundry pit at
reduced unit rates compared to scheduled ore movement. The material movement
reduced was changed due to credit constraints with the contract assay
laboratory and reduced grade control data reporting from Gala pit.

Minor grade control activity due to lack of ore movement from Gala also
reduced costs.

A cost accrual for crushing and screening activities carried out in August
was costed to equipment hire in the Mine Planning area, resulting in a cost
over run in this area.

LEACH PLANT COSTS

Total costs were down by 8 percent on budget at $2,195,048. This was mainly
associated with a reduction in acid usage.

Unit costs for leach were $56.64 per tonne of ore leached, against a plan of
$53.00 per tonne. Unit costs were higher than plan due to the lower leach
throughput achieved this month.

REFINERY COSTS

The refinery costs were under-budget (3 percent) for September, mainly as a
result of the lower than planned metal output.

Labor costs were 5 percent under-budget despite an unbudgeted $23,000
maintenance labor re-allocation.

Reagents were 14 percent under-budget, again as a result of the lower than
planned metal output.

MAINTENANCE COSTS

Maintenance costs for the month were $225,000 over budget, at
$909,000. The main areas that contributed to this cost overrun were ore
prep, leaching and CCD/PN. Ore preparation and leaching cost over runs
resulted from major works completed during the month and materials ordered
for the shutdown. CCD/PN costs are mainly attributed to pump parts, as a
large number of pumps required rebuilding during the month.

PRODUCTION SERVICES COSTS

Overall costs were under budget by 51 percent, predominantly due to a
reversal of charges incorrectly allocated to process control maintenance
last month.

COMMERCIAL COSTS

SUPPLY

Supply Costs were under budget by $55,000 (43 percent) for the month. The
main variance being in the freight area where invoices of $32,000 were not
accrued for the month. This will show as a variance in October. Salary costs
are also below budget and account for a difference of $23,000.

HUMAN RESOURCES

Costs were $12,000 (69 percent) under budget. Salary costs in this area are
reduced due to the Senior Human Resources Advisor taking maternity leave.
Advertising, recruitment and relocation costs are still below budget due to
the low activity in recruitment of senior personnel.

SITE ADMINISTRATION

Overall costs for the month are $54,000 (13 percent) over budget. The major
contributors to the variance are penalties and fines, where $29,000 was
incurred for the late payment of tax to the State Revenue Department. Audit
fees are in excess of budget by $10,000 and an adjustment for year 2000
workers compensation insurance contributed $48,000.

REVENUE                SEPT-2001
                         A$'000

METAL PRODUCTION

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

June 30, 2002                       1,892                   139

OUTLOOK

Throughput in early October continued to be affected by mechanical
performance of the leach plant. Numerous blockages of feed pumps to the
autoclave reduced leach availability and output will be further affected by
the commencement of a planned major shutdown commencing at the end of
October. Many of the tasks to be undertaken during the shut down will
contribute to improved plant performance.

GUANGDONG INVESTMENT: Subsidiary Enters Conditional Agreement
-------------------------------------------------------------
Guangdong Investment Limited announced that on 26 October 2001, a
wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, GD Properties, entered into a
conditional agreement with Yue Gang whereby GD Properties agreed to sell to
Yue Gang a 55.2 percent interest in GZ Panyu for a consideration of
RMB220,890,000, exclusive of a 2001 interim dividend (in respect of such
55.2 percent interest agreed to be sold) already declared by GZ Panyu prior
to the date of the SP Agreement and payable to GD Properties notwithstanding
Completion.

Under the SP Agreement, Yue Gang may (subject to the relevant governmental
and/or regulatory approval in the PRC) sub-sell all or part of the 55.2
percent interest in GZ Panyu to third parties and/or one or more of its
subsidiaries on or before Completion at not less than the Acquisition Price.
Furthermore, in the event that Yue Gang sub-sells Yue Gang's Interest at a
unit price higher than the Acquisition Price on or before Completion, GD
Properties is entitled to any premium arising in respect thereof.

Completion of the SP Agreement is conditional upon the satisfaction (or
applicable waiver(s)) of all conditions precedent set out therein. These
include, obtaining the approval of the Independent Shareholders (including,
inter alia, continuation of and/or modifications to the Company's
obligations under the Guarantee and the Deed of Undertaking on Completion),
the relevant regulatory/governmental authorities in the PRC and in Hong Kong

legal status of GZ Panyu to a general estate and property development
company with limited liability or a non-Sino-foreign co-operative joint
venture company with limited liability permitted to engage in general
development of properties in the PRC in addition to Riverside Garden and
subsequently to a joint stock limited liability company principally engaging
in general estate and property development.

Yue Gang owns approximately 55.52 percent of the Company through its direct
wholly owned subsidiary, GDH, and its Associates. Yue Gang is therefore a
substantial shareholder of and a Connected Person to the Company and the
sale by GD Properties (a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company) of its
interest in GZ Panyu to Yue Gang, and the intended subsequent implementation
of the Related Events constitute connected transactions of the Company under
the Listing Rules.

Since the Consideration for the Disposal exceeds HK$10,000,000 or 1.0
percent of the Modified Asset Value of the GDI Group, the Disposal will
require Independent Shareholders' approval whereby Yue Gang and its
Associates are required to abstain from voting on the relevant Shareholders'
resolutions. A circular containing details of the SP Agreement and the
matters contemplated thereunder, the advice from the independent board
committee of the Company and from an independent financial adviser, together

pro rata portion of such benefits shall be assigned to Yue Gang, after the
adjustment has been made to the Company's potential liabilities as
aforesaid.

Shareholders are reminded that there is no assurance that the above
arrangement will be successfully implemented before Completion. In any
event, the Company seeks the approval by the Independent Shareholders of the
aforesaid arrangements as part of the SP Agreement or failing which, the

respect of which the Company may become liable under the Deed of Undertaking
was approximately HK$948,000. Immediately following the Completion, the

Accordingly, the parties have agreed to endeavor to procure a change to the
terms of the Deed of Undertaking to the effect that the Company's potential
liabilities shall be reduced to 24.8 percent (severally) and that Yue Gang
shall undertake to pay 55.2 percent (severally) of the relevant contingent

Company of up to 69 percent (i.e. the proportion the interest in GZ Panyu
sold to Yue Gang under the SP Agreement bears to the interest in GZ Panyu
held by GD Properties prior to the Disposal).

PROVIDED THAT the parties may by mutual agreement in writing waive any of
the above conditions precedent or extend the Long Stop Date, except that for
the conditions precedent referred to in paragraphs (1)(a) and (1)(b), such
waiver shall not apply.

RELATED EVENTS

The parties have agreed to endeavor to take all reasonable steps to procure
changes in respect to the following matters on or after Completion:

(a) if the circumstances so permit, changing the legal status of GZ Panyu
from a project company to a general estate and property development company
with limited liability or a non-Sino-foreign co-operative joint venture
company with limited liability permitted to engage in general development of
properties in the PRC in addition to Riverside Garden; thereafter

(b) if the circumstances so permit, changing the legal status of GZ Panyu to
a joint stock limited liability company.

REASONS FOR THE DISPOSAL AND USE OF THE PROCEEDS

The Company and its subsidiaries (GDI Group) underwent a comprehensive
restructuring of its business, finance and management in 2000. The GDI Group
is committed to a business strategy with particular emphasis on utilities
and infrastructure. As a result, it is in line with the GDI Group's business
strategy to decrease its interest in GZ Panyu. Immediately following
Completion, the GDI Group will hold a 24.8 percent interest in GZ Panyu.

Further, GZ Panyu is at present a project company that is permitted to
pursue an approved project only, namely the property development and
investment of Riverside Garden. The land available for development by GZ
Panyu in respect of Riverside Garden is likely to be fully utilized within
the next 3 years. As such, it is in the best interests of the GDI Group to
secure the prospect of continuing growth and development of GZ Panyu by
seeking a conversion of the legal status of GZ Panyu into a general estate
and property development company or a non-Sino-foreign co-operative joint
venture company with limited liability permitted to engage in general
development of properties in the PRC in addition to Riverside Garden. To
qualify GZ Panyu for such a conversion under the relevant PRC regulations,
GZ Panyu must first become a limited liability company with the percentage
of foreign ownership not exceeding 25 percent of its interest.

The Directors believe that the entering into of the SP Agreement and
completion of the matters contemplated thereunder will be beneficial to and
in the best interests of the GDI Group. The proceeds of the Disposal will be
used to reduce the indebtedness of the GDI Group.

APPROVAL BY THE INDEPENDENT SHAREHOLDERS OF THE COMPANY

Yue Gang (together with its Associates) as at the date of this announcement,
holds an approximately 55.52 percent interest in, and is a substantial
shareholder of the Company. Accordingly, Yue Gang is a Connected Person to
the Company and the entering into the SP Agreement and the matters
contemplated thereunder constitutes a connected transaction for the Company
under the Listing Rules. Since the Consideration for the Disposal exceeds
HK$10,000,000 or 1.0 percent of the Modified Asset Value of the GDI Group,
the Disposal will require Independent Shareholder's approval whereby Yue
Gang and its Associates are required to abstain from voting on the relevant
Shareholders' resolutions.

An independent board committee has been appointed to advise the Independent
Shareholders on the terms of the SP Agreement and the matters contemplated
thereunder and whether they are fair and reasonable so far as the
Independent Shareholders are concerned. An independent financial adviser has
also been appointed to advise the independent board committee in respect of
the SP Agreement and the matters contemplated thereunder.

GENERAL

A circular containing, among other things, further information on the
transaction and a notice to convene an extraordinary general meeting of the
Company to be held to consider and approve the proposed transaction will be
dispatched to the Shareholders as soon as possible.

II. ANTECEDENT CONNECTED TRANSACTION

Pursuant to an agreement dated 11 October 2001 between GZ Panyu and a
commercial bank (Bank) established in the PRC and a further agreement dated
11 October 2001 between the Bank and the Joint Development Company, the Bank
at the direction of GZ Panyu has agreed to advance the sum of RMB10,000,000
to the Joint Development Company.

Accordingly, financial assistance was granted by GZ Panyu to the Joint
Development Company. On the basis that the Joint Development Company was a
substantial shareholder of GZ Panyu and therefore constituted a Connected
Person to the Company, the provision of financial assistance by GZ Panyu to
the Joint Development Company constituted a connected transaction for the
Company under the Listing Rules. An announcement dated 11 October 2001 was
made by the Company setting out details of the connected transaction.

After the Completion of the Disposal as described under section I above, GZ
Panyu ceases to be a subsidiary of the Company. Therefore, the provision of
financial assistance by GZ Panyu to the Joint Development Company shall no
longer constitute a connected transaction for the Company under the Listing
Rules.

NAM FONG: Auctions Certain Investment Properties
------------------------------------------------
The Board of Directors (the Board) of Nam Fong International Holdings
Limited has become aware from a Guangzhou newspaper on 22nd October 2001
that a notice was published in respect to an auction to be held on 30th
October 2001 for the sale of certain shop premises with an aggregate gross
floor area of approximately 4,732 square meters located at zone 2C of Liwan
Plaza, Guangzhou, China (the "Premises") pursuant to a judgement made on 1st
November 1999, as reported in the interim report for the period ended 30th
June 2001. The Premises are wholly owned by Guangzhou Sui Nan Property
Development Company Limited, a wholly-owned and one of the major operating
subsidiaries of the Company primarily engaged in the business of property
investment (Sui Nan).

On July 1997, Sui Nan entered into a loan agreement with a bank in Hong Kong
for a loan facility of approximately HK$80 million, secured by the Premises
(the "Agreement"). On 1st November 1999, as a result of Sui Nan's failure to
meet the balance payments due under the Agreement, the bank commenced legal
proceedings against Sui Nan and obtained possession of the Premises for the
recovery of outstanding balance payment in the sum of approximately HK$32
million together with interest thereon.

On 6th December 2000, the Guangzhou Municipal Court instructed a firm of
professional valuers to carry out a valuation on the Premises as of 10th
November 2000. The Premises were valued at approximately HK$112 million on
an open market basis with a forced sale value of approximately HK$84
million. The valuer also recommended that the latter be used as the initial
auction price for the Premises. Any surplus arising from the disposal of the
Premises after deducting interest and other charges will be refunded to Sui
Nan.

The Board has also been informed that Sui Nan is now in the process of
settlement negotiations with the bank and to defer the date of auction of
the Premises. Further announcement will be made on the development of this
matter and/or the results of the auction as and when appropriate.

BANK UNIBANK: Frozen, Under IBRA's Receivership
-----------------------------------------------
Bank Indonesia (BI) governor decree No. 3/9/KEP.GBI/2001 dated 29 October
has declared operations of PT Bank Unibank Tbk. frozen. The bank is now
under the receivership of Indonesian Bank Restructuring Agency, Bisnis
Indonesia reported Tuesday.

Senior BI deputy governor Anwar Nasution and IBRA chief I Putu Gede Ary Suta
jointly made the announcement Monday. The depositors are urged to remain
calm, as they will be able to withdraw their deposits in Bank Danamon on 5
November 2001, given they can produce their IDs and proof of deposits.

BI executive Siti Ch. Fadjrijah admitted that Unibank should have been
handed over to IBRA in June 2001 but due to the absence of fund guarantees
in account 502, it was delayed. Anwar Nasution, in the same way, said the
delay was due to technical reasons, not negligence.

Between June 2001 and 29 October the bank's management were told to sell
assets to cope with its liquidity problems, said Fadjrijah.

"The previous owner of the bank, Sukanto Tanoto, channeled 51% of the bank's
assets to his own business group Raja Garuda Mas (RGM)," said Nasution.

"Since 1998 payment ceased and BI changed its management and injected
capital. But the bank's performance worsened and in November 2000 it came
under BI's special supervision,"  Fadjrijah said.

Unibank's performance worsened since 1998 as it failed to deal with its
export payments.


PERUSAHAAN LISTRIK: Seeks Foreign Loans To Finance Projects
-----------------------------------------------------------
PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN) is seeking foreign loans to finance power
generation projects in a bid to avoid power shortages in Java and Bali in
2004, Jakarta Post reported yesterday, citing PLN president Eddie Widiono.

"Borrowing was inevitable as the company did not have sufficient internal
funds to finance the projects. We have to seek foreign funds...no other
choice," he said.

Since the 1997 economic crisis, PLN's financial health has rapidly weakened
year by year, making it almost impossible to implement expansion programs.

By the end of this year, PLN hopes to have started the building of a new
Muara Karang generating unit with a capacity of 700 MW, which will require
US$300 million in funds, Widiono said.

"The company would rely on the government funding to build generating units
for regions outside Java and Bali," Widiono added.

HOKURIKU BANK: Suspends Government Dividend Payments
----------------------------------------------------
Hokuriku Bank announced plans to skip dividend payments for preferred shares
held by the government in the current fiscal year through March 2002, the
Asian Wall Street Journal reported Monday.

Such a move will likely lead to a government intervention in the bank's
management. If a bank omits full-year dividends for preferred shares, the
government is entitled to intervene through the exercise of voting rights or
by converting shares into common stock.

Hokuriku Bank is the second bank from among those injected with public funds
in 1999 and 2000, to become unable to pay dividend for preferred shares. The
first one was Ashikaga Bank.

In July of 1999, the regional bank was granted Y75 billion in public funds
to replenish its capital.

Hokuriku now expects to post a group net loss of Y117B for this fiscal year,
drastically lower than the Y10.5 billion group net profit foreseen earlier.
For this business year, the bank also expects to post a Y120 billion parent
pretax loss and a Y117 billion parent net loss.

As part of its restructuring efforts, Hokuriku Bank plans to increase cuts
in the number of its employees, as well as branches and affiliates
companies.

billion from the original estimate of Y750 billion.
The company's net loss forecast remains unchanged however at Y25 billion.

Isuzu has been posting losses for the past two years and posted a group net
loss of Y66.8 billion in the latest fiscal year to March.


MATSUSHITA ELECTRIC: Unit Posts H101 Net Loss
---------------------------------------------
Matsushita Electric subsidiary Victor Company of Japan, more widely known as

billion during the April-September first half of fiscal 2001, up from the
original forecast of Y19.5 billion made last month for the same period,
according to a report by Kyodo News on Monday.

For the fiscal first half of last year, JVC posted a Y5.68 billion
consolidated net loss on group sales of Y443.30 billion,

In related developments, the Asian Wall Street Journal reported on Monday
that Standard & Poor's lowered its long-term rating on JVC to 'BBB'- from
'BBB'+. The ratings agency also lowered its short-term rating on the company
to 'A-3' from 'A-2'.The outlook on the long-term rating is negative.


MITSUBISHI ELECTRIC: Posts Y20.38B Pretax Loss
----------------------------------------------
For the half-year ended September 30, Mitsubishi Electric Corporation posted

profit of Y125.06 billion. The company's group operating profit was also
down to Y9.95 billion, compared to last year's figure of Y95.18 billion, the
Asian Wall Street Journal reported Monday.

The company also posted a parent pre-tax loss of Y14.88 billion for the
half-year ended September 30, as compared to last year's parent pre-tax
profit of Y63.16 billion. A parent net loss of Y42.69 billion was also
recorded, significantly down from last year's parent net profit of Y7.21
billion.

DAEWOO ELECTRONICS: Shareholders Approve Capital Reduction Plan
---------------------------------------------------------------
In return for a creditor-approved financial bailout, shareholders of South
Korea's Daewoo Electronics Co. passed a company plan to reduce capital to
W118.4 billion from the current W829 billion, with every seven shares
reduced to one, according to a Monday Asian Wall Street Journal report.

The proposed bailout, which included a conversion of W735.3 billion in debt
into equity, did not sit well with minority shareholders, with some even
declaring that they will take legal action against the approved reduction.


HYNIX SEMICONDUCTOR: New Bailout Proposal Revealed
--------------------------------------------------
Hynix Semiconductor's main creditor Korea Exchange Bank (KEB) recently
proposed a new bailout plan for the troubled chip manufacturer, this move
made amid continuing reluctance of several creditor banks to inject new
loans to the Korean company, the Korea Herald reported on October 30.

The proposed bailout plan invites creditors who are against extending new
loans to Hynix, to write off 70 percent of their Hynix exposures and convert
the remainder into equity. But some banks however, found the debt write off
ratio too high prompting KEB to start revising it.

The initial W3 trillion originally planned for the debt-for-equity swap will
be raised to W4 trillion. All creditors who concur with the swap arrangement
would purchase Hynix's bonds convertible to its common stock.

The new bailout plan will be discussed in a creditor meeting set for today.
"However the meeting may be postponed as some banks are reluctant to extend
new loans to Hynix", a KEB official said.

According to the same official, the implementation of the new bailout
program depends upon the approval of creditors accounting 75 percent of
Hynix's debt.


HYUNDAI ELECTRIC: Creditors Put Up Consultative Panel
-----------------------------------------------------
In compliance with the Corporate Restructuring Promotion Law, creditors of
Hyundai Engineering and Construction Co. (HEC) have set up a creditor
consultative council on Monday, Korea Herald reported yesterday.

A creditor steering committee, comprised of seven financial institutions,
was also established. The financial institutions include, Korea Exchange
Bank, Kyobo Life Insurance Co. and Hyundai Securities.

In line with the law, the creditors have agreed to put a one-month
moratorium on HEC debts in order to facilitate the immediate approval of a
new bailout program for the company.

The rescue program calls for a W1.4 trillion won debt-for-equity swap, as
well as a rights offering amounting to W750 billion to be underwritten by
the creditors.


HYUNDAI ENGINEERING: Creditors Freeze Debt Payments
---------------------------------------------------
South Korean creditors of Hyundai Engineering & Construction Co. have agreed
to freeze the company's debt repayments until November 28, in order to give
them time to sort out issues regarding a previous W2.9 trillion-bailout
package approved last March, the Asian Wall Street Journal reported on
October 29.

No details on the amount of the debt to be frozen were released, but company
sources revealed that Korea's largest construction company did not have any
maturing corporate bonds during the stated period.

By the end of September, Hyundai Engineering's debt-to-equity ratio stood at
300.8 percent and its total debt amounted to W2.25 trillion.

Bank creditors have already converted some W1.4 trillion of the company's
debt for equity. Some non-bank creditors, as well as investment trust
companies however, have refused to cooperate with the banks declaring that
they don't want to increase their exposure to the company.


HYUNDAI MOTOR: 10.6% Drop Projected For 2002 Car Sales
------------------------------------------------------
Due to a slumping American economy and waning consumer confidence, Korean
automaker Hyundai Motor may experience a drop in its U.S. car sales of a
projected 10.6 percent for the year 2002, the Korea Herald reported
yesterday quoting a brokerage forecast report.

The company's local automotive sales have also slid 6.3 percent in 2002, as
the General Motors-controlled Daewoo Motor is eating into the Korean market.

The brokerage report noted, "In the U.S. market, aggressive marketing by the
Big Three automakers, including free financing and price cuts, will force
Hyundai to expand the portion of marketing in entire sales to 9.7 percent,
up 0.3 points from this year."


HYUNDAI MOTOR: Plans to Build China Auto-Parts Plant
----------------------------------------------------
South Korean automaker Hyundai Motor Co. revealed plans to build an
automotive parts plant in China with hopes of cutting costs, the Asian Wall
Street Journal reported on Monday.

The construction of the plant may start as early as next year. By using
China's labor force and materials, Hyundai hopes to reduce its production
cost.

Early this month, Hyundai Motor Co. was planning to issue W200 billion of
three-year corporate bonds to repay W155 billion
of corporate bonds maturing in November and also settle other
debts.


KOHAP LIMITED: Creditors to Separate Core Ops to Form New Corp
--------------------------------------------------------------
The creditor banks of Kohap Limited, currently undergoing restructuring
under the Corporate Restructuring Acceleration Law, have decided to separate
the core operations of the company to form a new corporation, The Korea
Herald reported Saturday.

This move separates Kohap's industrial material makers PX, PTA, PIC, SSP and
OX operations from the core business and integrates it into a new
corporation, which would be completed by the end of the year.

Operations not included in the process will be either sold off or
liquidated, according to Kohap's creditor group.

The resulting entity will consist of assets totaling W1.14 trillion,
liabilities worth W686.3 billion and capital of W457.5 billion. The newly
born corporation will have a sound debt ratio of around 150 percent.

MBF HOLDINGS: Unit Appoints LHRM as Resort's Management Co
----------------------------------------------------------
MBf Holdings Berhad (MBfH) informed the Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange
(Exchange) that its wholly-owned subsidiary namely MBf Property Services Sdn
Bhd (MBfPS) has appointed Leisure Holidays Resorts Management Sdn Bhd (LHRM)
as the management company of Paradise Malacca Village Resort, Malacca (the
Resort) sited on the land held under Title No. H.S. (M) 2/77 P.T. Lot No.
PTMT A2/01/2766, Mukim Bukit Katil, District of Melaka.

LHRM will provide maintenance and management services to the building,
facilities, infrastructure and common areas of the Resort for the unit
owners.

Background of the Resort

MBfPS, which is the registered owner of the master title of the Resort, had
in 1992 entered into Sale and Purchase Agreement of a Lease of Hotel
Apartment suites (SPA of Lease) in the Resort with purchasers (also referred
to as unit owners). Subsequently, MBf Hotels (M) Sdn Bhd (MBf Hotels) had
entered into a total of 347 sublease agreements with unit owners of the
Resort in return for an annual 8% guaranteed return (GR) over a period of 3
years with an automatic renewal option for another 3 years, expiring in
years 2000 and 2001 in order to operate the Resort as a hotel.

MBf Hotels, however, incurred substantial losses in the operation of the
Resort, which had ceased operations on 28 August 2000.

It is not in the interest of MBfPS and MBf Hotels to manage the Resort in
the light of the current economic environment.

Information on MBfPS

MBfPS is principally involved in property management and has an authorized
and paid-up capital of RM2,000,000.00.

Information of MBf Hotels

MBf Hotels is involved in the management of hotels and holiday resorts and
has an authorized and paid-up capital of RM25,000.00 and RM2.00
respectively. It is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Paradise Hotel & Resort
International Limited, which in turn is wholly-owned by MBf Equities Sdn Bhd
(MBfE). MBfE is a wholly-owned subsidiary of MBfH.

Information on LHRM

LHRM was incorporated on 14 March 1991 and is principally involved in resort
management services. It has an authorized and paid-up capital of RM25,000.00
comprising 25,000 ordinary shares of RM1.00 each.

Rationale for the Transaction

LHRM is currently operating eight other resorts in Malaysia and has the
relevant expertise to manage the Resort.

The appointment of LHRM will help to protect the interest of the unit owners
as the Resort which had been closed since August 2000 will deteriorate
without proper care and maintenance. It would be important to maintain the
Resort to protect the value of the assets.

In addition, LHRM has 50 units of the apartments at the Resort and it is in
their interest to ensure that the Resort is operating.

Financial Effects

The transaction will not have any material financial effects on the Group.

Interest of Directors, Substantial Shareholders and Persons Connected to the
Directors and Substantial Shareholders

Dato' Loy Teik Ngan who is the Chief Executive Officer and Managing Director
of MBfH is also a director and substantial shareholder of LHRM. He has a
direct and indirect shareholding of 11,418,000 shares (0.99%) and 42,884,445
shares (3.73%) in MBfH.

NATIONAL POWER: Increases Power Rates
-------------------------------------
National Power Corporation announced that an additional P0.05 per
kilowatt-hour will be charged for electricity distributors starting
November, the ABS-CBN News Service reported yesterday.

Consumer analysts noted that such an increase, "as a rule of thumb", could
translate to an increase of P5.85 per kilowatt-hour in the retail rate
charged by the distributor.

Napocor's transmission assets are up for sale this month in the government's
efforts to privatize the ailing state-owned power company. The final auction
for the sale of the transmission assets is nearing completion. Only the
final list of bidders for the state-owned power company's industrial
all-risk insurance policy has yet to be completed.


PICOP RESOURCES: DENR OKs TLA, To Continue Operations
-----------------------------------------------------
Picop Resources, Inc. announced the continuation of its operations following
Department of Environment and Natural Resources Secretary Heherson Alvarez's
approval of its Timber Licensing Agreement (TLA) that allows the company
access to its raw wood materials. The announcement is as follows:

Picop Resources, Inc. (PCP) informed the Exchange that on 26 October 2001,
PCP received from DENR Secretary Heherson T. Alvarez, a notice that the
conversion of PCP'S forestland under TLA 43 had been approved.

This development provides the basis for a long-term assurance of wood supply
to PCP's pulp and paper mill.

PCP still has to hear from the DENR their clarification on the issues of
planted tree ownership and harvesting in its IFMA 35, the main source of

CAPITALAND LIMITED: Unit Announces Changes In Management
--------------------------------------------------------
The Board of Directors of CapitaLand Limited subsidiary the Ascott Group
Limited wishes to announce that Mr. Dennis Foo Moo Seh has ceased to act as
joint Company Secretary starting Oct 29, 2001. He has also relinquished his
role as Chief Corporate Officer, and Mr. Benett Theseira, currently the
Chief Investment Officer of the Company, has assumed the role of Chief
Corporate & Investment Officer on the same date. Ms. Chia Lee Meng, the
joint Company Secretary, will continue in her current role as Company
Secretary of The Ascott Group Limited.

Following the Company's recent acquisition of the Oakford serviced residence
chain in Australia, Mr. Dennis Foo has been appointed as Managing Director
(Australasia) to lead the Company's business in Australia and New Zealand.
With the above changes, the Company's Executive Management Committee will be
reconstituted as of October 29, 2001, to comprise the following members

Mr. Kee Teck Koon, Managing Director/Chief Executive Officer
Mr. Cameron Ong Ah Luan, Chief Operating Officer
Mr. Eu Mun Leong, Chief Financial Officer
Mr. Benett Theseira, Chief Corporate & Investment Officer


GK GOH: Suspends Philippine Unit Operations
-------------------------------------------
The Board of Directors of G. K. Goh Holdings Limited (GKGH) announced on
October 29 that G. K. Goh Securities (Philippines), Inc (GKGSP), a wholly
owned subsidiary of the company incorporated in the Philippines, will
temporarily suspend its business operations with effect from 30th November
2001.

The operations of GKGSP have been adversely affected by weak stock market
volume in recent years. Excluding restructuring costs, GKGSP is expected to
contribute a loss of approximately S$1.4 million for financial year 2001.
While the Arroyo administration has brought about much positive change in
the Philippines, the Board of GKGH does not expect Philippines stock market
conditions to improve sufficiently in the near term to sustain the
operations of GKGSP.

Concurrently, the GKGH Group is implementing a broad-based cost-reduction
exercise. This has involved streamlining a number of business processes, and
reducing capacity in certain areas affected by technology change and lower
stock market volumes. Together with the suspension of the Philippine
business, this will result in the loss of approximately 60 jobs.
Restructuring costs in total are expected to be approximately S$2 million.

Additionally, staff at all levels have been asked to accept salary
reductions. Senior executives of the Group are taking the lead with pay
reductions of between 20 percent and 30 percent.

In aggregate, it is expected that recurrent overheads will decrease by
approximately 12 percent. This downsizing, though painful, is necessary
because of the significantly weaker business environment in our main
markets, with reduced market turnover magnifying the impact of lower
commission rates. It has been planned as a once-off restructuring,
sufficient to address the weak market conditions we have been experiencing.
If business conditions improve more swiftly than we presently envisage, the
Board intends to compensate continuing staff for their reduction in income
through an ex-gratia payment.

In releasing the interim results in September, the Board raised the
possibility that the Group might not be profitable for the full year. Taking
into account restructuring costs, a full-year operating loss for the 2001
financial year is now likely.

KRISDAMAHANAKORN PUBLIC: Posts Q201 Rehab Plan Progress
-------------------------------------------------------
Krisdamahanakorn Public Company Limited (KMC) and financial advisor Finansa
Securities Limited (Finansa) have analyzed KMC's auditor report of 2nd
quarter of 2001 compared with KMC's financial projection under the
rehabilitation plan and would like to report the progress of the
rehabilitation plan and operating performance of 2nd quarter of 2001:

Operating performance of normal property development business is lower than
the projected figures of 2nd quarter of 2001. Sales of property and revenues
from construction services are 59.41 percent and 36.53 percent lower than
the projection, respectively. Management fee income is 143.74 percent higher
than the projection. Revenue from interest income and rental income are
58.38 percent and 55.58 percent higher than the projection. Revenue from
golf course and other income are 10.60 percent and 34.27 percent lower than
the projection.

However, cost of sales and construction services are 72.52 percent lower
than the projection due to decrease in sale of property and revenue from
construction service. Actual gross profit margin is 63.95 percent, which is
31.99 percent higher then the projection since KMC emphasizes on selling
high profit margin products. Selling and administration expenses are 11.47
percent lower than the projection.

Therefore, the operating income before interest expenses is Bt42.90 million,
which is Bt7.67 million or 21.76 percent higher than the projected figure at
Bt35.23 million.

Background:

KMC was notified by the SET on March 5, 1999 regarding the classification of
being delisted by the SET. KMC has notified the SET regarding its intention
to rehabilitate the company and has appointed Finansa to be a financial
advisor for preparing of KMC's rehabilitation plan.

Finansa has prepared KMC's rehabilitation plan with the cooperation of KMC
and Ernst & Young Office Limited (E&Y) as KMC's auditor who reviewed KMC's
financial projection over the 2-year rehabilitation plan from 3rd quarter of
2000 to 2nd quarter of 2002.

The extraordinary shareholders' meeting No. 1/2000 of KMC has resolved to
approve the rehabilitation plan on October 16, 2000.  By the request of KMC
under the conditions of the SET, KMC's shares were resumed their trading on
the SET on December 7, 2000.

Since then, KMC and Finansa have submitted the progress reports of
rehabilitation plan of 3rd and 4th quarter of 2000 and 1st quarter of 2001
to the SET.
