ANACONDA NICKEL: Reaches Short-Term Funding Agreement
-----------------------------------------------------
Anaconda Nickel Limited announced an agreement has been reached
with representatives of its secured creditors on the provision
of US$10 million short term funding from Glencore International
AG for the Murrin Murrin Joint Venture. The agreement is subject
to final approvals and documentation. This facility will assist
Anaconda in meeting project cash call requirements.

This short term funding is only the first phase of a
restructuring negotiation process with secured creditors
regarding its longer-term liquidity which Anaconda anticipates
will take several months.

Anaconda' auditors, KPMG, have completed their independent
review of the financial report of Anaconda Nickel Ltd for the
half-year ended 31 December 2001. KPMG have noted the inherent
uncertainty regarding continuation of Anaconda as a going
concern. The financial report, subject of the audit
review, has now been lodged with the ASX and can be found at
http://www.bankrupt.com/misc/TCRAP_Anaconda0401.pdf

Anaconda will continue formal negotiations with its secured
creditors in the ensuing months and has a reasonable expectation
to restructure its debt and to recapitulate. The Company will
continue to explore every recapitalization option available.
Anaconda has invited secured creditors to conduct due diligence
on the Murrin Murrin project in order to facilitate a project
valuation and an acceptable restructuring agreement.

Anaconda will continue to keep the market fully informed about
the progress of the negotiations.


ANSETT GROUP: A$90M Plus in Worker Entitlements Paid
----------------------------------------------------
Ansett Administrators, Mark Mentha and Mark Korda, confirmed
that the disbursement of about A$90 million to approximately
2,700 former Ansett workers started on Wednesday, in accordance
with their earlier forecast that entitlements would be paid by
Easter.

Entitlements payments being made include:

  * 4-5 weeks pay in-lieu of notice,
  * annual leave
  * long service leave
  * up to 8 weeks redundancy paid under the SEESA program.

Messrs Mentha and Korda added that additional A$20 million is
ready to be disbursed to almost 800 former Ansett group staff as
soon as they return property and ID cards to the company.  The
disbursement of funds comes in the wake of receipt of A$110
million from the Federal Government under the Special Employee
Entitlements Scheme for Ansett group employees (SEESA).

"We are pleased that we have been able to process thousands of
redundancies in such a short time frame so that we can minimize
the hardship being suffered by Ansett's people," Mark Mentha and
Mark Korda, said.

"I would like thank the Federal Government for its support in
allowing us to make another tranche of payments to nearly 3000
people which now brings total payments to employees up to A$303
million, and some 11,000 employees now have received a
significant part of their entitlements," Mr Mentha said.

Further entitlements and initial payments will be subject to the
sale by the Administrators of Ansett Australia Group assets.


ANSETT GROUP: Creditors' Vote Continues Administration
------------------------------------------------------
The creditors of the Ansett Group of Companies voted on
Wednesday in favor of recommendations made by Administrators,
Mark Mentha and Mark Korda, to execute deeds of company
arrangements for each Ansett company therefore continuing the
Ansett administration.

In a statement issued on Wednesday afternoon, the Federal
Government also acknowledged its support for the Deeds of
Company Arrangement and continued administration.

A full poll of creditors was taken at the Second Meeting of
Creditors' of the Ansett Group held at the Melbourne Exhibition
Centre.  The poll taken was to determine whether each Ansett
company should execute a deed of company arrangement, or the
administration should end and each Ansett company be placed into
liquidation.

At a press conference after the meeting, Messrs Mentha and Korda
said they were pleased with the outcome of the meeting as it
represented the best possibility of maximizing returns to all
creditors.

They said it also ensured that more than 1400 Ansett group
employees who are still employed at Kendell Airlines, the Ansett
Simulator Center, the Australian Aviation Engineering Services
and Ansett International Cargo remained so, while the
administration negotiates the sale of several key assets as
'going concerns.'


EARTH SANCTUARIES: Issues Restructuring Process Update
------------------------------------------------------
Earth Sanctuaries Ltd announced that following the expression of
interest process commenced in January, a takeover bid for the
company in its current form is not expected to occur.  Earth
Sanctuaries is heading down the path of a breakup.  Earth
Sanctuaries is in the due diligence and negotiations phase with
five preferred parties with proposals to acquire both individual
assets and groups of assets.  Other potential buyers may be
brought back into the process pending the outcome of the process
with preferred parties.  The identity of the preferred parties
and their proposals remain confidential.

Preferred party discussions are at an advanced stage,
particularly with some parties, but sale agreements remain
incomplete at this stage.  An initial announcement with respect
to at least two of the parties is expected to be made within the
next few days.  Other announcements will be made when other
proposals are finalized.

A key consideration has been the welfare of the thousands of
rare and endangered native animals in the Company's sanctuaries.
In this regard, the likely outcome is looking very positive.

GAMES 'R': Request Securities Trading Suspension
------------------------------------------------
The securities of Games 'R' Us Australia Limited will be
suspended from quotation immediately, at the request of the
Company, pending compliance with listing rule 11.1 and Chapters
1 and 2 of the listing rules.

The Company expects the suspension to last until receipt of the
shareholder approvals at a general meeting and satisfaction of
conditions imposed by ASX. It is not aware of any reason why its
securities should not be suspended. The Company is in the
process of preparing a notice of meeting and prospectus and
expects to convene a shareholders meeting in May 2002.

In the event that the shareholder approvals are received and the
Company satisfies the conditions imposed by ASX, the Board does
not intend to pursue the Company's present business activities,
being the retail of computer games, console platform games and
related products.

401 HOLDINGS: In Debt Settlement Negotiations With Creditors
------------------------------------------------------------
The Directors of 401 Holdings Limited (the Company), in regards
to the settlement arrangements entered into between the Company
and certain of its creditors, announced that the Company is in
the course of discussions with remaining creditors relating to
the settlement of outstanding obligations in consideration of
the issue to some of these creditors of shares in the Company at
HK$0.01 each as part of its overall capital restructuring plan.

It is expected that upon settlement of its outstanding
obligations, the Company will put forward for the consideration
of its shareholders a capital restructuring proposal involving,
amongst other things, the consolidation of its shares of HK$0.01
each and the reduction of its capital. The directors of the
Company expect but cannot predict with certainty that the
discussions with its creditors will take at least three months.

Pursuant to clause 30 of the listing agreement entered into
between the Company and The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited
(Stock Exchange), the Company is required to proceed with a
consolidation of its shares as the market price of its shares
approaches HK$0.01 should the Stock Exchange so direct. The
Company has now been requested by the Stock Exchange to address
the issue and the Company is going to put forward for
shareholders' approval a capital restructuring proposal,
including the consolidation of its shares of HK$0.01 each, at
the next special general meeting, if any, and in any event, no
later than its coming annual general meeting which is expected
to be convened in August, 2002. The timing of any capital
restructuring will depend on the progress of the Company's
current discussions with its creditors. However, the board of
directors of the Company will use its reasonable endeavors to
comply with the request from the Stock Exchange.

Further material developments relating to the capital
restructuring proposal will be announced as and when
appropriate.

Investors should exercise extreme caution when dealing in the
shares in the Company.

Anglo Chinese Corporate Finance, Limited is advising the Company
on the capital restructuring proposal.

CLASSIC GROUP: Hearing of Winding Up Petition Set
-------------------------------------------------
The petition to wind up Classic Group Enterprises (HK) Limited
is set for hearing before the High Court of Hong Kong on June
12, 2002 at 9:30 am.  

The petition was filed with the court on February 27, 2002 by
Bank of China (Hong Kong) Limited (the successor corporation to

Kong) Limited (Merger) Ordinance (Cap. 1167) of 14th Floor, Bank

DAILYWIN GROUP: Repays Amount Due Under the Stock
-------------------------------------------------
The Board of Directors of Dailywin Group Limited (the Company)
announced that the Company will repay the full principal amount
of the Stock plus any accrued interest, up to the date of
repayment, on 27 March 2002.

Currently, the outstanding principal amount of the Stock is GBP
2,756,816 (approximately HK$30.7 million). The aggregate
repayment amount together with accrued interest is GBP2,791,257
(approximately HK$31.1 million).

The funds for the repayment of the amount due under the Stock
will be fully financed by the Loan from Rich Time.

The Loan will be applied in the following manner:

   (i) approximately HK$30.8 million for repayment of the
principal amount of the Stock held by Dynamission, which amounts
to GBP2,727,810 plus accrued interest;

   (ii) approximately HK$0.3 million for repayment of the
balance of the principal amount of the Stock held by the
remaining stockholders which amounts to GBP29,006 plus accrued
interest; and

   (iii) the balance of approximately HK$0.9 million as the
Company's working capital.

Reasons for repayment of the amount due under the Stock

For improving the financial stability of the Group, the Board
believes that it is in the Company's best interest to repay the
Stock, which is immediately due and repayable, by utilizing the
Loan, which has a tenor of 18 months. The Directors consider
that the terms of the Loan are on normal commercial terms.

In addition, the Stock carries interest at the rate of 9.5% per
annum, which is substantially higher than the current market
interest rate. Since the Loan will carry interest at the rate of
prime plus 2% per annum, based on the current prime rate of
5.125%, the Company's interest expenses after the repayment will
be substantially reduced.

Background information

As announced in the announcements dated 26 October 2001, 13
November 2001, 22 November 2001, 26 November 2001, 20 December
2001, 4 January 2002, 7 February 2002 and 25 February 2002
(together, the Announcements), due to the non-payment of
interest of the Stock, the Stock had become immediately due and
repayable and the Trustee for the holders of the Stock had
issued a statutory demand and subsequently petition for winding
up of the Company and applied for appointment of provisional
liquidators of the Company.

In February 2002, the Company, the Trustee, Dynamission and Rich
Time came to a settlement in respect of the winding up petition
and application for the appointment of provisional liquidators
against the Company subject to the terms as provided in the
Heads of Agreement. Pursuant to the Heads of Agreement,
Dynamission has acquired from the Stockholders GBP2,270,710
(approximately 25.3 million) of the outstanding amount of the
Stock and a joint application was made by the Company, the
Trustee, Dynamission and Rich Time to the Court, which had
granted an order for, among other things, the dismissal of the
winding up petition and the appointment of provisional
liquidators to the Company. As at the date of this announcement,
the total amount of the Stock held by Dynamission amounts to
GBP2,727,810 (approximately HK$30.4 million), representing
approximately 98.95% of the total outstanding amount of the
Stock and the remaining balance is held by independent third
parties who are not connected with the directors, chief
executive or substantial shareholders of the Company or its
subsidiaries or their respective associates.

The Board had sought further legal advice as to the legal status
of the Stock after the completion of the purchase of the Stock
by Dynamission and the dismissal of the winding up petition and
the appointment of provisional liquidators to the Company and
was being advised that, despite the above transactions, the
Stock remains immediately due and repayable.

As such, with a view to improving the financial stability of the
Group, the Board approached Rich Time, which had agreed to grant  
the Company an 18-month unsecured term loan of HK$32 million
(the "Loan") at the interest rate of prime plus 2% per annum for
repayment of the Loan. Rich Time holds approximately 29.19% of
the share capital of the Company in issue.

MERPATI NUSANTARA: Rp300B Notes Issuance Approval Pending
---------------------------------------------------------
PT Merpati Nusantara Airlines' plans to issue medium-term notes
worth Rp300 billion to repay its debts are pending approval from
the government, Jakarta Post reports, citing Merpati's
Controller and Insurance and Tax Nanager, Setyo Wisnubroto.

"We have no money to repay the debts. So this plan to issue
notes is the only way out. We are still awaiting the approval of
the government," Wisnubroto said.

Merpati, faced with continuing financial difficulties, submitted
a proposal on the issuance of the notes to the Office of the
State Minister of State Enterprises in January this year, but
had yet to receive a response.  The Company has appointed
Mandiri Securities to arrange the issuance of the notes.

Merpati's debts to the Indonesian Bank Restructuring Agency
(IBRA), totaling Rp331 billion, will mature on April 11.  The
airline had attempted to secure financing from banks and non-
bank financial institutions to repay the debts, but to no avail.

According to Setyo, IBRA promised to grant the airline a
generous debt haircut of up to Rp230 billion, provided that the
Company could settle the rest of the debt, or Rp101 billion, on
time. "If the company is unable to meet this requirement, the
debt restructuring deal will be canceled and negotiations with
IBRA will begin again."

DAINIPPON INK: Forming Alliance to Consolidate UP Production  
------------------------------------------------------------
Dainippon Ink & Chemicals Inc., Showa Highpolymer Co. and
Hitachi Chemical Co. plan to combine their unsaturated polyester
production lines to rationalize their operations, Dow Jones
Newswires reports.

The chemicals companies decided to join forces due to continued
market shrinkage and increasing competition from rivals in
Taiwan, South Korea, China and Singapore.

In addition to the consolidation of their production bases, the
three will consider cost-cutting measures in such areas as
procurement, distribution and capital expenditures, the news
agency said.

Domestic demand for unsaturated polyester, which is used in the
production of bathtubs and other housing items, as well as in
leisure boats, dropped about 26 percent to 200,000 metric tons
in 2001 from the peak of 271,000 tons in 1991.


DAIWA BANK: Asahi Bank Will Waive Showa Leasing Debts
-----------------------------------------------------
Asahi Bank, a member of Daiwa Bank Holdings Inc., will waive its
financial claims totaling some Y55 billion against subsidiary
Showa Leasing Co., Kyodo News reported, citing industry sources.

Showa Leasing, a major leasing firm based in Tokyo has been
plagues by a large amount of bad loans.


LAWSON INC: New Boss Faces Challenge to Revive Business
-------------------------------------------------------
Lawson Inc.'s new boss, Takeshi Niinami, is facing a tough task
to revive the struggling retailer.

According to a report from the Asahi Shimbun, Mitsubishi Corp.,
Niinami's former employer and Lawson's biggest shareholder have
handed the job, which starts at the end of May.

Lawson's troubles began when it expanded too fast but has been
unable to raise prices given the current deflationary trend. Its
shares have plunged since the company floated in July 2000.

Observers say the Osaka-based operator of convenience stores
needs to close unprofitable outlets and do more aggressive
restructuring.


MITSUBISHI MOTOR: Eckrodt Named President
------------------------------------------
Mitsubishi Motors Corp. has named Rolf Eckrodt as president, the  
Japan Times reported.

Mr Eckrodt, DaimlerChrysler AG's representative to MMC, has
served as chief operating officer at MMC since January 2001. He
will take over Takashi Sonobe following the move's approval at
an MMC shareholders' meeting in late June.

Sonobe is also expected to become chairman at the firm, the
paper added.

Eckrodt's planned promotion has fueled hopes that MMC will boost
its restructuring efforts under DaimlerChrysler's leadership.

DaimlerChrysler is MMC's major shareholder with a 37.3 percent
stake. MMC posted a net loss of Y75.6 in 2000 and suffered
Y31.49 billion net loss in the first half of the current
business year. The company said it would cut its procurement
costs by 15 percent by 2003 and cut 9,500 jobs by March 31,
2004.


MITSUBISHI MOTOR: Will Spin Off Truck Business to Daimler JV
------------------------------------------------------------
Mitsubishi Motors Corp. plans to spin off its commercial vehicle
division into a joint venture with major shareholder
DaimlerChrysler AG as early as this year, the Nihon Keizai
Shimbun reported.

The German automaker is expected to invest billions of yen in
the venture and take a roughly 30 percent stake. Mitsubishi
Motors is seen spinning off the manufacturing and sales
divisions covering trucks and buses. The two companies are now
finalizing the deal, which will be formalized in May.

The Japanese automaker aims to strengthen its commercial vehicle
operations through the partnership. It also expects the division
to earn an operating profit this fiscal year.

MMC further aims to cut annual costs by Y10 billion through the
alliance.


SNOW BRAND: Plans to Close More Plants
--------------------------------------
Snow Brand Milk Products Co., the parent company of scandal-hit
Snow Brand Foods Co., has called for the closure of more
factories in the Kanto region around Tokyo and the spin off of
its unprofitable milk products division as part of the
reconstruction plan, Kyodo News reported, citing company
sources.

The Tokyo-based dairy producer also plans to set up a joint
company by merging the division with the National Federation of
Agricultural Cooperative Associations (Zen-Noh) and the National
Federation of Dairy Cooperative Associations (Zenrakuren), the
sources said.

Snow Brand Milk is asking Zen-Noh, Itochu Corp. and other
related trading companies to recapitalize it, the report said.

Snow Brand has closed three factories since a poisoning incident
in 2000, which made some 15,000 people ill after they consumed
tainted products. The company took an additional blow from
January's beef mislabeling fraud perpetrated by its subsidiary
Snow Brand Foods.

The company has shut seven factories in Tokyo and the
prefectures of Shizuoka, Ishikawa, Hiroshima, Iwate, Miyagi and
Miyazaki last week.


SUN WAVE: R&I Downgrades L-T Rating to BB-
------------------------------------------
Rating and Investment Information, Inc. (R&I) on March 22 has
downgraded Sun Wave Corporation's Senior Long-term Credit
Rating; Long-term Bonds (3 Series) to BB- from BB+; Domestic
Commercial Paper Program to a-3 (Affirmed).

RATIONALE:

Sun Wave Corp. is a major manufacturer of housing products,
especially sanitary-ware equipment such as system kitchens. The
slump in the housing market has resulted in a severe operational
environment for all the nation's housing equipment makers, and
Sun Wave is feeling the effects of this particularly strongly
because of factors such as its weak marketing system, and its
earnings potential has consequently declined. The Company is
making efforts to cut costs, for example by closing and
amalgamating factories, but sales continue to fall as demand for
homeownership slips, while sales prices are also falling, so the
effects of these cost-cutting measures are being partially
canceled out. Pretax profit for the March 2002 term is expected
to be above the previous year's level, but, with slumping
demand, sales may fall by more than was expected in initial
projections so any improvement is highly likely to be small at
best.

It appears certain that the firm will report a fifth straight
final loss after the tabling of retirement provisions etc., and
restoring earnings potential will take time. There is an urgent
need to rebuild the marketing system, which compares unfavorably
against other firms in the sector, and at the same time it will
be necessary to push further ahead with structural reforms.

Interest bearing debt is at a high level because of past
investments on distribution centers. It should be possible to
cover fund demand out of asset sales for the time being, but
there is a strong possibility that the firm will have to look to
external sources to cover bond redemptions from 2005 onward, and
it will be necessary to monitor the willingness of the major
shareholder, Nisshin Steel Co., Ltd., to provide support, as
well as the Company's relations with financial institutions.


TDK CORP: Applies for Delisting of Shares
-----------------------------------------
TDK Corporation gives notice that the Company, at the meeting of
the Board of Directors held on March 26, 2002, resolved upon
applications for the delisting of shares of the Company to be
filed with the stock exchanges of Paris, Amsterdam, Frankfurt
and Switzerland on which shares of the Company are currently
listed as follows:

Particulars

1. Reason for Application for Delisting

As a result of economic integration in the Euro zone, including
currency unification, the significance of multiple stock markets
in the continental Europe decreases, and accordingly, the
Company determined to continue listing of its shares only in
Brussels, which is close to Luxembourg the most important
business base of the Company in Europe, but terminate the
listing on the four other stock exchanges.

2. Stock Exchanges other than the Aforesaid Four Stock Exchanges

The Company's shares will continue to be listed on the Tokyo
Stock Exchange, Osaka Securities Exchange, New York Stock
Exchange, London Stock Exchange and Brussels Stock Exchange (in
total five).

3. The Date of Applications for Delisting

In and after April, 2002, delisting applications will be filed
with the four stock exchanges, from time to time.

4. Forecast hereafter

Since the Brussels Stock Exchange is like the Paris Stock
Exchange and Amsterdam Stock Exchange under the same umbrella of
Euro-next as the holding Company, shares of the Company will be
traded on the Paris Stock Exchange and Amsterdam Stock Exchange
on the basis similar to trading prior to the delisting, because

DAEWOO MOTOR: GM Will Get $2BB Loan From Creditors
--------------------------------------------------
Daewoo Motor's Korean creditor banks are prepared to extend US$2
billion in loans to General Motors for the United States
carmaker's acquisition of the ailing Daewoo, Digital Chosun
reports.

The Korean government and creditors have also decided to provide
a package of tax cuts on the deal, partially agreeing to GM's
demand for the five-year grace period on the special consumption
tax for the deal, the report added.

They also noted that the expected tax reduction value would be
arranged so that it is equivalent to the five-year grace on the
consumption tax.

Daewoo's lenders are now expecting to sign a final contract to
sell the firm's assets to GM for US$1.2 billion by April 20,
which is also the deadline date for the banks to submit their
liquidation measures for the struggling auto firm to the courts.


HYNIX SEMICON: Minor Shareholders Oppose Sell-off
-------------------------------------------------
Hynix Semiconductor's minor shareholders announced they will
continue their campaign against the proposed sell-off of the
chipmaker to Micron Technology of the United States, the Digital
Chosun reported.

The association of minor shareholders of Hynix claimed that the
management of the firm and its creditors, including Korea
Exchange Bank (KEB) and Hanvit Bank (HB), cannot ignore the
wishes of 370,000 minor shareholders by moving ahead with the
sell-off bid.

Unionized workers of the South Korean firm said that they would
also oppose the sales deal, the paper added.

As reported in the March 26 edition of the Troubled Company
Reporter Asia Pacific, Micron decided it would not pay more than
6 percent interest on $1.5 billion in loans its creditor banks
will provide after the purchase is finalized. Micron also
proposed that 13.2 percent of the shares it would pay to finance
the purchase, valued at $4 billion in earlier reports, would be
placed in an escrow account.


HYUNDAI MERCHANT: Named `Green Supplier' by Swedish Firm
--------------------------------------------------------
Hyundai Merchant Marine Co., Seoul's marine transportation
services provider, has received a perfect score in an evaluation
of the company's environmental friendliness, and was named a
"green supplier" by Swedish firm Tetra Laval, the Korea Herald
reported.

"The award will help Hyundai Merchant broaden their market in
the area because European companies put as much emphasis on
firms' environment-awareness as they do on services," an
official from Hyundai said.

Tetra Laval, a Swedish company active internationally in such
fields as processing and packaging of liquids and environmental
care, conducts environmental evaluations on its partner shipping
firms and classifies them into Red, Yellow or Green, being the
highest level of awareness.

At the end of 2000, Hyundai Merchant Marine Co., Ltd. --
http://www.hmm.co.kr/-- had negative working capital, as  
current liabilities were W3.25 trillion while total current
assets were only W1.88 trillion.


KOOKMIN BANK: Denies Report ING Agreed to Up Stake
--------------------------------------------------
Kookmin Bank has denied a local newspaper report that ING Groep
N.V. has agreed to increase its stake in Seoul's commercial bank
to 9.9 percent from the current 4 percent, Dow Jones Newswires
reported.

A Kookmin Bank spokesman said that the parties have not yet
reached any agreement on the stake sale.

According to Maeil Business Newspaper Thursday, Kookmin Bank
will issue new shares equivalent to a 3.9 percent stake and sell
the shares to ING.

ING will raise its stake to 9.9 percent via stock purchases this
year and next year, the report said.

Kookmin Bank has said the alliance contract will remain valid if
ING raises its stake in Kookmin Bank to at least 8 percent
initially and to 9.9 percent. The two banks aim to start a
financial services business in 2003 as part of the alliance.

Kookmin Bank -- http://www.kookmin-bank.com/-- and ING began  
talks in late January on ING's possible purchase of more shares
in the South Korean bank. ING had held a 9.9 percent stake in
Housing & Commercial Bank before that bank merged with Kookmin
Bank in November last year.

The South Korean government is the largest shareholder in
Kookmin Bank with a 9.6% stake, while Goldman Sachs Group Inc.
(GS) holds a 6.9 percent stake and ING owns a 4 percent stake.

The ministry officials will also impose a two-year operation ban
during the second half of this year on companies that have
recorded lower business performances for the past two years, the

-------------------------------------------------------
Idris Hydraulic (Malaysia) Berhad (IHMB or the Company) informed
that the Insurance Commission, Department of Finance of the
Republic of the Philippines has no objection to the proposal of
the Monarch Insurance Company, Inc., Philippines to develop
Islamic Insurance in the country in collaboration with IHMB.

Profile

The Company (IHMB) was formed as the vehicle to take over the
business of Idris Hydraulic Tin plc (Idris plc), a mining
company. IHMB carried out mining operations until 1986. Over the
years the Company has expanded into property development,
insurance services, manufacturing and timber-based activities.

IHMB has proposed a series of corporate exercises which would
ultimately see its listing status being transferred to a new
company that would focus on investment in the insurance
industry. Insurance subsidiary, Talasco Insurance Bhd (TIB), is
among the few insurance companies in Malaysia with a paid-up
capital of RM100m or more.

On 13 July 2000, 17 August 2000 and 11 January 2001, a
restructuring exercise was proposed which amongst others,
addresses IHMB's various financial obligations to creditors and
reconstitutes IHMB's assets in a new entity (Newco).

The restructuring, undertaken under the auspices of the
Corporate Debt Restructuring Committee, BNM, includes a shares
subscription with Dato' Che Mohd Anuar bin Che Mohd Senawi and
Idaman Unggul Sdn Bhd (Newco), capital reconstruction, capital
reduction and reserve reduction, share exchange, rights issue of
shares, scheme of arrangement, issue of yield shares, rights
issue of ICULS, transfer of TIB to Newco, and proposed listing
transfer from IHBB to Newco.

IHMB has applied to KLSE for an extension of time until end-
October 2001 to obtain all necessary approvals for
implementation of its restructuring which has undergone various
revisions.

In response to the current insurance industry consolidation
program, the Company signed a SPA in May 2001 with Asian Pac
Holdings Bhd to acquire 100% in Tenaga Insurance Bhd. Also, in
the same month, IHMB entered into a MOU to acquire 51.13% in
Malaysia & Nippon Insurans Bhd.

exercise. Since its submission to the SC in July 1999, the
Company has received approvals from the FIC and MITI. The scheme

construction-based company. The acquisition forms a part of the
Group's restructuring scheme involving capital and debt
reconstruction, share exchange and capital exercises. The new

interest in Sam Long Chemicals Industries (Malaysia), one of its
manufacturing concerns.

NATIONAL STEEL: Restructuring Deal Draws to a Close
---------------------------------------------------
The liquidator and the consortium of creditor banks of National
Steel Corp. (NSC) will formally present a plan to state-run
Pengurusan Danaharta Nacional Bhd of Malaysia this week
detailing the financial restructuring of the bankrupt steel
giant, ABS-CBN News reports.

According to Trade Secretary Manuel Roxas II, a delegation
composed of NSC liquidator and former Securities and Exchange
Commission associate commissioner Danilo Concepcion, as well as
representatives from the creditor banks, will go to Malaysia for
the formal negotiations.

The DTI chief pointed out that banks led by the Philippine
National Bank (PNB) successfully obtained a two-thirds vote from
the creditor banks approving the financial restructuring of the
financially distressed steel firm.

The proposal include substantial `haircuts' by both Hottick
Investment Ltd. and the creditor banks in their equity as well
as exposure that will result in a `nearly debt-free' NSC.

The 82.5-percent interest of Hottick will likely be "watered
down" while the banks are likely to write down a third of their
P16-billion exposure in NSC.

According to Roxas, there is also an agreement among members of
the consortium banks that nobody will block the financial
restructuring.

Aside from PNB, creditors of NSC include Land Bank of the
Philippines, UOB (Westmont Bank), Allied Bank, Asian Bank, Bank
of Commerce (Urban Bank), China Bank, Credit Agricole Indosuez,
Wise Citco, Equitable PCI Bank, Rizal Commercial Banking Corp.,
Traders Royal Bank and United Coconut Planters Bank.


PHILIPPINE AIRLINES: Sees Loss of P1.8BB for Fiscal Year
--------------------------------------------------------
Philippine Airlines (PAL) expects to post a net loss of between
P1.6 and P1.8 billion in the current year to March due to the
impact of terrorism fears, the Philippine Star reports.

According to President Avelino Zapanta, the reduced passenger
traffic following the September 11 terrorist attacks in the
United States, as well as travel warnings about the Philippines
issued in some major tourist markets, will push PAL into the
red.

PAL incurred a net loss of P2.1 billion between September and
November in the previous year.

the provisions for certain litigation cases stated in the
circular to members dated 11 March 2002 (the Circular),
additional provision for doubtful debts, cost overruns, non-
recoverable inter-Company debts due from subsidiaries that had
gone into liquidation and losses arising from the disposals of

-------------------------------------------------------
Thai Rating and Information Services Co., Ltd. (TRIS) said on
March 26 that it was following closely the announcement from The
