AQUARIUS PLATINUM: Executive Director Resigns from Board
--------------------------------------------------------
In line with Aquarius Platinum Limited's (Aquarius) stated goal
of increasing its management in South Africa, the Directors of
Aquarius advise that Mr Craig Munro, Executive Director Finance,
has announced his retirement from the Board of Aquarius.

The group is close to securing the services of a replacement to
enhance its management structure in South Africa. Mr Munro who
has been with the Company since 1997 was involved in the
embryonic stages of the Company's corporate life in South Africa
which involved the listing of Kroondal Platinum Mines Limited on
the Johannesburg Stock Exchange, the raising of debt finance for
the Kroondal Platinum Project and the subsequent listing of
Aquarius on the AIM Board in London. The Aquarius Board recorded
their appreciation for Mr Munro's contribution whilst on the
Board of the Company.

Mr Munro who retires to pursue private interests leaves the
Company with the best wishes of the Aquarius Board. Mr Munro's
areas of responsibilities are being managed by the Company
Secretary pending a replacement.

On January 10, 2002 Aquarius entered into agreements with
Investec Bank Limited (IBL) and Impala Platinum Holdings Limited
(Implats) to extend the Implats guaranteed ZAR504 million
facility that Aquarius Platinum (South Africa) Pty Ltd (AQPSA)
was required to settle with IBL on 31 December 2001.


COTTEE HEALTH: Enters Acquisition Agreement With NoRegrets
----------------------------------------------------------
The Directors announced that Cottee Health Limited (Cottee) has
entered into an agreement with NoRegrets Limited (NoRegrets), an
unlisted company, and associated parties to acquire all of the
shares in NoRegrets, and other incidental assets.

OVERVIEW OF TRANSACTION

Under the agreement, Cottee will initially acquire an eighty
percent (80 percent) interest in NoRegrets a scrip based
consideration totaling up to one hundred million (100,000,000)
ordinary fully paid Cottee shares.

Key elements of the agreement between Cottee and NoRegrets
include:

   (a) Cottee will issue a total of one hundred million
(100,000,000) shares to the shareholders of NoRegrets or their
nominees in consideration for the acquisition of eighty percent
(80 percent) of the issued shares in NoRegrets.

   (b) the shareholders in NoRegrets will grant an option to
Cottee to acquire the remaining twenty percent (20 percent) of
the issued shares in NoRegrets exercisable at any time within
eighteen (18) months of completion of the sale
and purchase at a price to be agreed or failing agreement by
independent determination; and

   (c) The Board of Cottee will be restructured whereby up to
three (3) new Directors including Alister Norwood and Jennifer
Browning will be appointed to the Board.

The transaction is conditional upon:

   (a) the restructure of the NoRegrets group;

   (b) satisfactory due diligence investigations being completed
by both parties:

   (c) no material adverse events occurring; and

   (d) all shareholder and regulatory approvals being obtained
by Cottee, NoRegrets and its shareholders for the transaction.

NOREGRETS

NoRegrets is Australia's leading retailer of signature branded
intimate apparel. It sells its premium quality merchandise
through a Sydney based NoRegrets store and the NoRegrets Online
Store.

NoRegrets has developed a Managed Retail Franchise System with
approximately six hundred and forty (640) franchises that
leverages the infrastructure of NoRegrets Online and greatly
expands its marketing and sales reach. The NoRegrets Managed
Franchise System uses the electronic catalogue of
the Online Store.

The NoRegrets business has grown over a period of approximately
five (5) years through the creation of an exclusive range of
intimate apparel, hosiery, fragrance and skin care products
under the NoRegrets signature brand that is available only from
NoRegrets, the NoRegrets website and the NoRegrets Managed
Franchise network.

NoRegrets was founded by CEO Alister Norwood, the founder of the
highly successful Jeans West retail chain.

The Directors have been advised that revenue for NoRegrets has
been:

1999 (unaudited)    2000 (unaudited)    2001 (unaudited)
$5,188,193            $8,998,143         $4,770,158

SHAREHOLDER APPROVALS

As the proposed acquisition and merger involves a change of
scale and nature of business by Cottee, the fashion and online
industry, Australia Stock Exchange Listing Rules require that
Cottee comply with the requirement of Chapters 1 and
2 of ASX Listing Rules. It is anticipated re-listing will occur
by early May 2002.

Shareholders and potential investors are advised that, if
shareholders approve all resolutions related to the transactions
put at the shareholders' meeting then:

   (a) Cottee will be required to comply with Chapters 1 and 2
of the Listing Rules of ASX;

   (b) Cottee will remain suspended until the requirements of
Chapters 1 and 2 of the listing Rules have been satisfied, and

   (c) Cottee expects to be able to comply with the requirements
of Chapters 1 and 2 of the Listing Rules by early May 2002 and
will issue a prospectus for the purpose of satisfying Listing
Rule 1.1.

IMPLICATIONS FOR COTTEE

Aside from the other details set out above in relation to the
transaction with NoRegrets subsequent to completion of the
transaction:

   (a) the capital structure of Cottee will be approximately 130
million ordinary fully paid shares which will increase further
in the event Cottee determines to exercise its option to acquire
the remaining twenty percent (20 percent) interest in NoRegrets;
and

   (b) three (3) new Directors including Alister Norwood and
Jennifer Browning as nominated by NoRegrets will be appointed to
the Board of Cottee.

If you have any questions please contact Tony Hamilton at
Cottee.

TCR-AP reported December 17 last year that Mr A Sims and Mr
Scott Pascoe were appointed joint and several administrators of
the company.  The Administrators requested a suspension of
trading for the conduction of investigation into the company
affairs.


EARTH SANCTUARIES: Expressions of Interest Lodged by 25 Parties
---------------------------------------------------------------
The Directors of Earth Sanctuaries Ltd (ESL) announced that
25 interested parties have lodged expressions of interest for
some or all of Earth Sanctuaries assets. The identity of these
interested parties remains confidential.

Of the 25 interested parties, four have expressed a potential
interest in acquiring all of the shares of Earth Sanctuaries
whilst 21 have expressed interest in particular assets.

Interest in particular assets has been strong with a number of
indicative bids for assets at better than book value. Many
parties are
interested in continuing ESL's conservation activities in some
form.

Accordingly, the process of asset sales is on track to improve
ESL's financial performance and facilitate some crystallization
in value for shareholders above that currently reflected in
ESL's traded share price.

The expressions of interest received will be firmed up in coming
weeks as interested parties undertake due diligence and complete
site visits. Final binding bids are due on 28 February.

Mid-January this year, TCR-AP reported that ESL intends to
undertake a major restructuring in order to enhance and to
preserve shareholder value. The first step in the restructuring
will involve the commencement of a significant program
of cost reductions. A major program of asset sales is also being
initiated. Expressions of interest are sought on all of ESL's
assets. If interest is expressed in acquiring all the shares in
ESL this  will also be considered by the Board.


JAMES HARDIE: Releases Third Quarter 2001 Report
------------------------------------------------
James Hardie Industries N.V. reported an 18 percent increase in
its 3rd quarter EBIT before non-recurring items to US$19.1
million for the three months ended December 31, 2001.

The stronger operating performance, reflecting improvements from
all businesses, was offset by one-off, non-recurring charges
totaling $17.1 million. As a result, Net Operating Profit for
the quarter was down 77 percent to US$2.5 million.

The operating performance improvements included a 9 percent
increase in Sales Revenue and a 23 percent rise in Gross Profit.

Fibre cement operations were universally stronger with EBIT
before non-recurring items rising 17 percent in the United
States, while EBIT was up 42 percent in Australia, 27 percent in
New Zealand and 89 percent in the Philippines. The US-
based gypsum business recorded a 213 percent recovery in EBIT.

All business units are expecting further improvements in
operating performance in the fourth quarter and no significant
one-time costs are anticipated.

USA FIBRE CEMENT - CONTINUED GROWTH AND STRONGER COMPETITIVE
POSITION

Sales revenue increased 12 percent to US$102.2 million in the
third quarter due to a 2 percent increase in the average selling
price to US$451 per thousand quare feet and a 10 percent
increase in sales volume to 227 million square
feet, despite a temporary weakening of market conditions.

EBIT before non-recurring items was up 17 percent to US$21.8
million for the quarter and was 36 percent higher for the nine
months year to date. The third quarter EBIT margin was 21.3
percent.

The US fiber cement business continues to expand and strengthen
its competitive position. In December, the business completed
the strategically significant acquisition of two fiber cement
plants - in Pennsylvania and South Carolina - from Cemplank Inc,
until then the second largest producer of fiber cement in the
USA.

In a separate statement, James Hardie announced plans to enter
the large US roofing market with construction of a pilot plant
in the southwest to trial manufacturing a new generation of
fiber cement roofing products.

AUSTRALIA - HIGHER SALES, VOLUMES AND EBIT

Sales revenue increased 16 percent to US$27.2 million for the
third quarter buoyed by a 19 percent lift in sales volume.
Exports were up 52 percent and sales of FRC Pipes rose 27
percent for the quarter. EBIT for the third quarter
was up 42 percent to US$4.4 million and the EBIT margin also
improved, rising to 16.2 percent.

NEW ZEALAND - HIGHER SALES AND EBIT DESPITE FLAT TRADING
CONDITIONS

Sales revenue was up 7 percent for the third quarter due mainly
to an increase in the average selling price. Combined with
further improvements in manufacturing efficiency, EBIT rose 27
percent to US$1.4 million and the EBIT margin was 13.9 percent.

PHILIPPINES - CLOSE TO BREAKEVEN DESPITE WEAK DEMAND
DOMESTICALLY

The business generated positive cash flow and achieved a close
to breakeven result at the EBIT line, due to a significant
increase in export sales which more than offset lower demand
domestically, and lower manufacturing costs.

CHILE - SALES VOLUME DOUBLED

Volume doubled for the quarter and revenue increased
significantly compared to the second quarter of the current year
following the start-up of the business in March 2001. The
business is penetrating its targeted market segments at the
desired rate.

FRC PIPES USA - NEW PRODUCTS FUEL SALES GROWTH

Sales revenue and volume continued to grow following the
expansion of the product range in the second quarter with the
launch of 24" and 30" storm drainage pipes which have allowed
the business to bid on a larger number of construction projects
in its target markets. Demand from the public construction
sector remained at high levels.

US GYPSUM - FURTHER SIGNS OF RECOVERY

The gypsum business recorded a 213 percent increase in EBIT
compared to the same quarter last year, following the successful
implementation of price increases
for wallboard products. The average selling price for the
quarter was US$84 per thousand square feet, which was up US$2 on
the same quarter last year and up US$10 on the previous quarter
of the current year.

The stronger EBIT result reflects not only higher selling prices
but also further reductions in manufacturing costs and
significant growth in sales of non-wallboard products.

The business has just announced its fourth price increase on
wallboard products in the past 8 months. The latest price
increase, to take effect in March, is similar to other price  
increases that have been announced by  all of the major industry
participants in recent weeks.

NON-RECURRING ITEMS

One-time non-recurring costs of US$17.1 million occurred in the
quarter and included:

a) US$12.6 million to settle a legal action involving certain
roofing products that were sold mainly in the Pacific north-west
of the United States and which were removed from the market in
that region in 1995, and to fully provide for all other related
future claims;

b) US$2.8 million, being the final corporate restructuring
costs; and c) US$11.7 million for pulp hedge costs due to the
implementation of a new US accounting standard in April 2001.
This charge is not related to the termination of the company's
pulp hedge contract with Enron, which terminated as a result of
that company going into bankruptcy in December 2001.

SHARE PURCHASE PLAN

James Hardie also announced the launch of a Share Purchase Plan
that will enable all Australian and New Zealand resident
shareholders to purchase shares in James Hardie up to the value
of A$3,000. Details of the Plan will be mailed to shareholders
on 26 February, 2002.

The offer of shares under the plan will be made at a 5 percent
discount to the share price calculated over a three day period
before the record date of 21 February, 2002 and shareholders
will be able to subscribe for the shares without incurring
brokerage or other transaction costs. No securities are or will
be offered to persons who are established, domiciled or resident
in The Netherlands or the United States.

OUTLOOK

The economic outlook in the company's major markets remains
mixed and uncertain.

It is not yet clear whether the easing of interest rates in the
United States will offset a modest softening in consumer
confidence or the recent increase in unemployment. To date, the
housing industry has been resilient in the face of weaker
economic conditions and there are signs that this could
continue. Housing starts for the 2002 calendar year are
currently forecast to be similar to 2001. If this eventuates,
market conditions for James Hardie's products could be expected
to remain favorable.

The company expects to continue to grow demand for its fiber
cement products in the USA, due to an increased focus on the
Repair & Remodel segment, a continued push into strong vinyl
siding markets and further changes to distribution arrangements.

In Australia, strong housing activity is expected to continue
during the next quarter buoyed by low interest rates and the
Government's First Home Buyer's Scheme. Export sales are also
expected to grow. Profitability should improve further due to
the sales growth, higher prices and manufacturing efficiencies.

In New Zealand, there are signs of an improvement to the new
residential housing market with building permits up in the third
quarter, supported by low interest rates. Strong demand from the
non-residential construction sector and for premium priced
products in the residential sector is expected to continue.

In the Philippines, domestic sales growth is expected from a
stronger construction and building industry in the fourth
quarter. Growth in export sales is also expected as the business
continues to penetrate key Asian countries. Profitability
improvements are anticipated from sales growth, further
efficiency gains and lower manufacturing costs.

In Chile, it is expected that sales volumes will grow steadily
as the business continues to build brand awareness and develops
additional distribution cannels.

The US-based FRC Pipe business is expected to continue to
increase production to meet strong demand from the buoyant civil
construction sector.

In Gypsum, wallboard prices were marginally lower in January due
to seasonal factors. However, industry-trading conditions should
improve as a result of all major industry wallboard producers
announcing further price increases for wallboard products to
become effective during March and April. Growth in sales
of non-wallboard products, along with further manufacturing
efficiencies and lower paper and energy costs should contribute
to a further improvement in profitability.

The process to examine the potential for a sale of James
Hardie's gypsum assets is continuing with discussions underway
with a number of parties. There are good prospects for a sale
and significant shareholder value could be created from a
sale of the assets at the appropriate time, although James
Hardie remains under no pressure to sell its gypsum assets.

The company believes that the stronger operating performances
during the second and third quarters will continue into the
fourth quarter.

LEND LEASE: Sells Kiwi Property Group Interest
----------------------------------------------
Lend Lease Corporation Limited (Lend Lease) announced the sale
of its interest in the New Zealand property funds management
company, Kiwi Income Properties
Limited (Kiwi Group), and associated assets to Colonial First
State Property.

Lend Lease acquired its interest in Kiwi Group in 1998. Since
then Lend Lease has assisted Kiwi management in the
restructuring of the Kiwi Group and provided management advice
on its retail assets.

The Kiwi Group was 50 percent owned by Lend Lease, 25 percent by
interests associated with Ross Green and Richard Didsbury, and
25 percent by Canadian interests. Colonial First State Property
is acquiring 100 percent of the business.

Lend Lease held an option to increase its interest in the Kiwi
Group to 100 percent, exercizable this year.

Lend Lease Real Estate Investments' Global Chief Executive, Mr
David Ross said, "The decision to sell down our interest
clarifies Kiwi Group's long-term ownership structure for
investors, while freeing us to concentrate resources on
other initiatives as we expand our global real estate investment
management business."

The sale is conditional upon receiving approval from New
Zealand's Overseas Investment Commission. Settlement of the
transaction is expected at the end of March 2002.


NORMANDY MINING: Removed From S&P/ASX Indices
---------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's, the leading provider of equity indices in
Australia, announced that effective Friday, 22 February, 2002
the following changes to the S&P/ASX indices will occur.

Removal: Normandy Mining (ASX: NDY) will be removed from all
S&P/Australia Stock Exchange indices as a result of the takeover
offer by Newmont Mining.

Standard & Poor's announced that Newmont Mining will not be
included in any S&P/ASX index.

Replacement companies as a result of NDY's removal:

James Hardie (ASX: JHX) will be included within the S&P/ASX 50.

Medical Imaging Australia (ASX: MIA) will be included within the
S&P/ASX 100.

Roc Oil Company Limited (ASX: ROC) will be included within the
S&P/ASX 200.

No replacement company will be added to the S&P/ASX 300.


OMNI GROUP: ASIC Places Prospectus Third Interim Stop Order
-----------------------------------------------------------
The Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) on
Wednesday issued a third interim stop order on the prospectus of
Omni Group Limited (Omni), due to concerns that Omni has failed
to disclose sufficient information about the financial position
of E-Control Pty Limited.

Omni, an ASX-listed company, has been suspended from quotation
since 8 December 2000 and is now seeking to raise a minimum of
$8 million through the issue of 20 million shares under its
second replacement prospectus, dated 21 December 2001.
  
Omni plans to acquire E-Control Pty Limited in conjunction with
the re-listing of its shares.

ASIC made its third interim stop order, following a surveillance
action undertaken after receipt of a detailed and credible
complaint from a member of the public.

"Complaints from the public are an important source of
information for ASIC in relation to the contents of a
prospectus, and ASIC will undertake surveillance
action when it believes that such action is warranted.

"Prospectuses must contain sufficient information to enable an
investor to make an informed decision," said Richard Cockburn,
an ASIC Director of Policy and Markets Regulation.

The concerns relating to the third interim stop order are
scheduled to be addressed at a hearing later this month. Omni is
co-operating with ASIC in relation to the prospectus.

Omni lodged two replacement prospectuses in response to ASIC's
earlier concerns that led to the placement of the first two
interim stop orders.


PLANTATION EQUITY: Dealers' License Suspended
---------------------------------------------
The Australian Securities and Investment Commission has
suspended the securities dealers license held by Plantation
Equity Services Limited (PES).

This action followed a decision by the Directors of PES to
appoint Garry Trevor and Martin Jones of Ferrier Hodgson,
Chartered Accountants as joint administrators of PES on 28
December 2001.

The Directors of PES appointed administrators as they felt that
PES would be unable to meet its debts as and when they fell due.

PES is the responsible entity for three managed investment
schemes, the Paulownia West Coast Projects No. 3 & 4 and the
Australian Oak Project; and acts as the manager for two other
prescribed interest schemes, the Paulownia West Coast Projects
No. 1 & 2.

ASIC suspended the license to prevent PES from continuing to
manage the schemes while it remains insolvent and under external
administration. Under an approval granted by ASIC, the
administrators are authorized to continue to operate or
manage the schemes to the extent necessary to carry out their
administration.

This includes maintaining or preserving any property held
pursuant to the schemes, arranging a reconstruction or sale of
PES and/or the schemes, and winding up the schemes.

The license suspension is in effect for three months.

NEC CORPORATION: US Unit Releases NEAX 2400 Internet Protocol
-------------------------------------------------------------
NEC America, Inc. (NEC) announced on February 13, 2002 the most
current release of its NEAX(R) 2400 Internet Protocol eXchange
(IPX), the industry's first enterprise-wide IP-PBX that supports
peer- to-peer connectivity, as well as IP transport and
traditional TDM telephony.

Offering the same reliability and features associated with
traditional TDM PBXs, the NEAX 2400 IPX is designed to provide
telephony solutions for large enterprises.

Available immediately from NEC authorized dealers, the NEAX 2400
IPX is the latest step in NEC's Enterprise Open Network (NEON),
the company's migration strategy for introducing converged
networking based upon proven reliability, functionality and
investment protection.

"Last Fall, NEC shook the foundation of the telecommunications
industry when it released the NEAX 2000 IPS, the first PBX to
support peer-to-peer, IP transport and TDM switching, all while
providing the reliability and full feature set that business
demands," said Frank Viola, assistant general manager, NEC
Corporate Networks Group. "Now, with the introduction of the
NEAX 2400 IPX, large businesses have the option to deploy IP
wherever it makes sense for them, without impacting the user
experience. This solution gives customers the power to choose
where to leverage new technologies within the enterprise without
having to forego the reliability and functionality they depend
upon. We feel it is the best possible vehicle for an enterprise
to protect its investment while migrating to new technology."

The NEAX 2400 IPX is unique in that it can provide a combination
of peer-to- peer switching, IP transport and TDM telephony while
offering PBX reliability and full functionality with over 750
enterprise-specific features. The NEAX 2400 can scale to over
24,000 ports. Current NEAX 2400 users can easily migrate to
the NEAX 2400 IPX, avoiding the need to forklift out their
equipment.

"Migrating our customers seamlessly to new technologies has
always been one of NEC's hallmarks," said Jay Krauser, assistant
general manager for NEC Product Management. "When we first
embarked on our NEON strategy three years ago, our message to
the industry was that businesses should be able to choose where
to deploy IP without compromising their experiences. There was
then, and continues to be, no reason to choose IP at the expense
of the user experience. NEC has stayed on message by delivering
solutions that make it possible for companies to opt for IP in a
manner that makes sense for them."

MALAYSIAN AIRLINE: Enters Proposed Disposal MAP With ABM
---------------------------------------------------------   
Aseambankers Malaysia Berhad (Aseambankers), on behalf of the
Board of Directors of Malaysian Airline System Berhad (MAS or
the Company), announced that the Company had on 5 February 2002
entered into a conditional Master Aircraft Purchase Agreement
(MAP) with Aircraft Business Malaysia Sdn Bhd (ABM), a wholly
owned subsidiary of the Ministry Of Finance Incorporated (MOF),  
for the Proposed Disposal of eight (8) aircraft for a total
consideration of approximately RM3.867 billion (Proposed
Disposal).

Save and except for the amendments listed below (Proposed
Amendments), there are no other changes in the terms of the
Proposed Disposal as stipulated in our previous announcement
dated 7 January 2002.

PROPOSED AMENDMENTS

(i) As mentioned in the Earlier Announcement, based on the
valuation carried out by AVITAS, an international consulting
firm that specializes in aircraft appraisal, in their 2nd half
2001 publication, the market value of the three (3) existing
aircraft (Existing Aircraft) to be disposed namely the B747 (9M-
MPL) (Aircraft 6), B747 (9M-MPM) (Aircraft 7) and B747 (9M-MPN)
(Aircraft 8) was RM1.432 billion.

To factor in the impact of the terrorist attack of 11 September
2001, the revised market value of the Existing Aircraft based on
the valuation by AVITAS dated 25 January 2002 is RM1.093
billion. Accordingly, the disposal consideration has been be
revised to RM1.17 billion.

The disposal consideration for the Existing Aircraft of RM1.17
billion is a premium of approximately RM77 million or
approximately 7 percent higher than the current market value of
the Existing Aircraft based on the valuation carried out
by AVITAS of RM1.093 billion.

Further details of the above are as entailed in the table below:

Revised Valuation and Total Consideration for the Existing
Aircraft

1,170,000,000
(USD377,000,000)  (USD287,700,000) (USD307,895,000)

(ii) The initial deposit for the disposal consideration of
approximately RM390 million shall be revised upward to RM1.170
billion.

(iii) The 2nd Half 2001 AVITAS Bluebook of Jet Aircraft Values
and Avatar's letter dated 25 January 2002 will be made available
for inspection at the Company's registered office at 33rd Floor,
Bangunan MAS, Jalan Sultan Ismail, 50250 Kuala Lumpur during
normal business hours for a period of two (2) months from the
date of this announcement.

IMPACT OF THE PROPOSED AMENDMENTS

(i) Pursuant to the revision in the disposal consideration for
the Existing Aircraft, the total disposal consideration for the
Proposed Disposal is revised to approximately RM3.867 billion as
compared to approximately RM4.13 billion, subject to any further
adjustments to cover all cost incurred by MAS in respect
of the five (5) newly acquired aircraft to be disposed (Newly
Acquired Aircraft) namely B747 (9M-MPO) (Aircraft 1), B747 (9M-
MPP) (Aircraft 2), B747 (9M-MPQ) (Aircraft 3), B777 (9M-MRN)
(Aircraft 4) and B777 (9M-MRO) (Aircraft 5), up to
the delivery date to ABM and all costs of the buyer furnished
equipment identified at the point of the delivery to be incurred
by MAS from time to time in respect of the Newly Acquired
Aircraft.

The purchase consideration of the Aircraft is to be partly
satisfied with the payment of approximately RM3.638 billion in
cash and the balance plus any further adjustments will be
treated as an advance lease payment for the leaseback of the
Newly Acquired Aircraft from ABM.

(ii) The Proposed Disposal would enhance the net tangible asset
per share of MAS from RM0.89 as at 31 March 2001 to RM0.92 after
taking into accounts gain from the Proposed Disposal of
approximately RM20 million based on the net book value
of the said aircraft of approximately RM1.149 billion as at 31
December 2001.

(iii) Pursuant to paragraph 2 (ii) above, the deposit payable is
proposed to be utilized for the payment of the purchase price
for the Newly Acquired Aircraft to the aircraft manufacturer.

indicative terms of the leaseback arrangement as follows:

   a. Type of lease

PARIT PERAK: Talks With White Knights Endangered
------------------------------------------------
Parit Perak Holdings Bhd's asset injection negotiations with the
white knights, led by Nadicorp Holdings Sdn Bhd Executive
Chairman Datuk Mohd Nadzmi Mohd Salleh, is in danger of falling
through due to the creditors' unwillingness to take a haircut,
The Edge reports, citing unnamed sources.

"Parit Perak creditors had backed out of an earlier deal to
accept a certain amount of haircut," said sources, adding that
until and unless the creditors accept the haircut conditions and
convert the rest of the debts owed to them into loan stocks, it
is unlikely that the white knights led by Nadzmi would be
interested.

"Nadzmi and his associates are unwilling to pump in so much
money for the creditors when money is needed for the company. No
one in their position would and the creditors have to be
realistic," a source to the deal said.

Parit Perak has been granted a month's extension until Feb 28 by
the Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange to release the requisite
announcement on its corporate and debt-restructuring plans.

Gary Olivar.

business on grounds it would jeopardize their partnership.

METRO PACIFIC: Clarifies P68B Asset Write-off Report
----------------------------------------------------
Metro Pacific Corporation (MPC), in reference to the news
article entitled "In RP assets, PLDT and First Pacific writes
off P68 billion" published in the February 1, 2002 issue of
Malaya that reports:

"...First Pacific Co. Ltd. (FPC) said on February 6 it will
record US$1.7 billion (P88.4 billion) in 'asset impairment
provisions' in its 2001 results to reflect the fall in values of
its listed units in the Philippines and Indonesia.
Some P68 billion (P1.307 billion) will be written off ini
Philippine assets, Metro Pacific Corp., P38.69 billion ($744
million) and Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co., P29.28
billion, ($563 million). Another P286 million will be
written off in PT Indofood Sukses Makmur First Pacific said in a
statement..."

in its disclosure to the Philippine Stock Exchange, stated that
in addressing FPC's impairment provision as it relates to MPC,
it should be noted that FPC made provisions they deemed
necessary to reflect their US dollar equity in MPC.
These provisions include readjustments in currency exchange
rates, perceived Philippine country risks, and other factors.

In addition, FPC noted in its full disclosure to the Hong Kong
stock exchange that, "the revised valuations reflect neither the
inherent value of First Pacific's significant shareholdings in
these investments nor the potential for long-term value
development, and do not acknowledge the anticipated improvement
in sentiment in the Philippine and Indonesian markets."

MPC is currently engaged in an extensive review and re-
organization of its businesses and intends to make the required
disclosures upon completion of this process no later than April

number presented to the board....", informed that the basis for
the reduction of losses in 2001 to P4.5 billion versus P5.97
billion loss in the previous year was due to the reversal of
valuation reserves already booked, after BSP reduced the
valuation reserves for fully secured loans classified as
substandard from 25 percent to 10 percent, as well as to

clients who may be interested in processing their tobacco with
the registrant through a tolling arrangement.

In order to phase out the tobacco operations, the registrant
will separate, on March 31, 2002, 348 employees, of which 320
are seasonal workers and 28 are regular employees. This will
cost the registrant approximately P9 million, which amount is
fully funded.

elected the following as members of the Board of Directors of
the registrant for the year 2002-2003:

Alonzo Q. Ancheta

against Mr. Bienvenido A. Tan, Jr. was reversed in favor of Mr.
Tan, Jr. on January 29, 2002.

TCR-AP reported on Thursday that PTFC has been losing money for
three years straight and does not expect its business to recover
in the future. The Company says tobacco sales in the past three
years were not even enough to cover expenses. In 1999, the cost
of sales exceeded tobacco sales by roughly P2 million. In the
next two years, the gap between revenues and expenses grew.
Sales in 2000 and 2001 registered at P126 million and P47
million while expenses jumped to P150 million and P68 million,
respectively.
