AUSTRALIAN MAGNESIUM: ASIC Starts Disclosure Investigation
----------------------------------------------------------
The Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC)
announced Wednesday that it has commenced an investigation into
disclosure by Australian Magnesium Corporation (AMC).

Since the outset, it has been clear that the AMC venture carried
significant risk. The existence and extent of this risk was the
subject of substantial disclosure in the company's prospectus.

In the risk section of the October 2001 prospectus, AMC stated
that 'there can be no assurance that construction will be
completed and the Stanwell plant commissioned on time and within
the capital cost estimate'.

Also, both ASIC and the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX) have
secured the disclosure of additional information to the market.

Nevertheless, ASIC considers that it is appropriate to fully
investigate the adequacy of the initial prospectus disclosure
and of the company's recent market disclosures.

ASIC does not propose to comment further on its investigation at
this stage.


BEYOND INTERNATIONAL: Discloses Meeting Results
-----------------------------------------------

Meeting at 10:am Thursday and each of the following Special

that PKF Chartered Accountants be appointed as auditor of the
Company.

This announcement is made pursuant to Listing Rule 3.13.2

Wrights Investors' Service reports that at the end of 2002,
Beyond International Limited had negative working capital, as
current liabilities were A$47.26 million while total current

dividends during the previous two fiscal years and reported
losses
during the previous 12 months.

COLES MYER: S&P Lowers Credit Rating to 'BBB'; Outlook Stable
-------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said Thursday that it has
downgraded its long-term corporate credit rating on Coles Myer
Ltd. (CML), and its guaranteed issues and programs, to 'BBB'
from 'BBB+', and the rating on its reset preference shares to
'BB+' from 'BBB-'. At the same time, the short-term rating is
affirmed at 'A-2'. The long-term ratings are removed from
CreditWatch, where they were placed on May 28, 2003.

The rating downgrade reflects CML's increasing financial risk as
a result of recent acquisitions, weaker-than-expected sales- and
market-share growth from its key food & liquor operations, and
ongoing challenges associated with managing its diverse and
growing band of retailing businesses," said Standard & Poor's
credit analyst Paul Draffin, associate director of Corporate &
Infrastructure Finance Ratings. Furthermore, although a
continued improvement in CML's earnings is anticipated in the
next few years, an improvement in credit-protection measures is
expected to be largely offset by growth in CML's financial
liabilities (which includes its growing operating lease
obligations).

The rating outlook is stable. "Rating stability at the 'BBB'
level should be underpinned by continued solid earnings
contributions from CML's food & liquor operations, and further
improvements in its nonfood earnings. This will help to offset
the risks associated with CML's significant and increasing
financial obligations, large capital-expenditure program, and
the ongoing risk of sales cannibalization and management
challenges associated with its diverse and expanding retail
formats," added Mr. Draffin.


ERG LIMITED: Signs Transit Fare Collection Project Contract
-----------------------------------------------------------
ERG Group has signed a contract with the Washington Metropolitan
Area Transit Authority (WMATA) to install and operate a new
Regional Customer Service Centre for their smart card based fare
collection system, known as SmarTrip(R). ERG previously
announced it had been selected for the project on 20 January
2003.

The project calls for ERG to establish and operate a smart card
customer service centre, to manage card distribution and to
clear and settle smart card transactions across 17 transit
agencies in Northern Virginia, Maryland and the Washington DC
area. Once installed, ERG will operate the system for a period
of five years, with two subsequent one-year options. The initial
five-year contract term, worth approximately US$20 million,
comprises the supply, installation and operation of the system.
ERG is expected to manage a card base exceeding 1 million smart
cards within the initial term of the contract.

ERG will be responsible for the management of smart cards and
operation of the data processing system incorporating clearing,
settlement and financial management. ERG will use its existing
central computer processing system installed in the San
Francisco Bay Area to perform these functions and will interface
with existing installed hardware such as gates and readers. The
established Bay Area facility has been designed to process smart
card transactions from multiple North American cities.

Work is expected to commence on the project within the next 30
days.

Northrop Grumman IT will be responsible for the distribution of
smart cards and operation of the customer service centre in the
Washington DC area as a subcontractor to ERG.

"It has been very pleasing to move quickly through the contract
negotiation process and we now look forward to working with our
customer to install and operate our state-of-the-art system,"
said Michael Nash, President and General Manager of ERG's
operations in the Americas.

"Washington DC is strategically a very important city in the
growing US market for smart card based fare collection systems.
Along with our partner Northrop Grumman IT, we have firmly
established our position in the North American market and we
expect to play a significant role in this region as more and
more cities invest in smart card based systems for their fare
collection."

"ERG's capacity for interoperability and openness of its system,
as well as our proven track record in Asia-Pacific, Europe and
other parts of North America, are extremely important factors in
the eyes of our customers."


MIM HOLDINGS: Requests ASX, NZSX Delisting
------------------------------------------

company from the New Zealand Stock Exchange (NZSX) and the

Downtown Utilities Pty Ltd

DownTown Utilities Pty Limited and WilTel are in the process of
completing documentation to effect the termination of the
Spectrum Shareholders Agreement. If PowerTel's shareholders
approve the Roslyndale Proposal on 2 July 2003, termination of
the Spectrum Shareholder Agreement will take effect upon

9. PowerTel shareholder approval to Roslyndale Syndicate

to be breached between now and the time of completion of the
Roslyndale Syndicate transaction.

Further information regarding the Share Sale Agreement between

make a decision at and not before 31 July 2003 whether to
terminate the agreement if the relevant conditions are not

BASIS OF PREPARATION OF FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

(SSAP) No. 25 "Interim  Financial Reporting" issued by the Hong
Kong Society of Accountants and with the applicable disclosure
requirements of Appendix 16 to the Rules Governing the Listing
of Securities on The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited.

In preparing the condensed financial statements, the directors
have given careful consideration to the future liquidity of the

(Agreements), subject to the approval by the shareholders of the
Company, to issue shares to new investors for an aggregate
consideration of approximately HK$90 million. Also, a
conditional deed of settlement is to be entered into with loan
providers to release and discharge the Group from net financial
obligations of approximately HK$32.4 million at 31st March, 2003
after the settlement of HK$20 million to such loan providers
upon successful completion of the Agreements.  On the basis that
the Agreements for issuing shares to new investors can be
successfully completed, the directors are satisfied that the
Group will be able to meet in full its financial obligations as
they fall due for the foreseeable future.  Accordingly, the
condensed financial statements have been prepared on a going
concern basis.

previous years.

The taxation charge for the period ended 31st March, 2002

loss for the period of approximately HK$1,400,000 (HK$25,795,000
for the six months ended 31st March, 2002) and on the
149,064,233 ordinary shares (149,064,233 ordinary shares for the

TERABIT ACCESS: Placement Closing Date Moved to July 21
-------------------------------------------------------
Terabit Access Technology International Limited refers to the
Announcements dated 15 May 2003, 22 May 2003 and 27 May 2003
relating to the placing of 1,200,000,000 Placing Shares to six
individual investors through the Placing Agent (the
Announcements).

As announced on 22 May 2003, the Closing Date of the Placing is
to be ten (10) business days after the fulfillments of the
Conditions (or such other time or date as the Company and the
Placing Agent shall agree). All Conditions of the Placing have
been fulfilled or waived on 29 May 2003 such that the Closing
Date should be 13 June 2003 (or such other time or date as the
Company and the Placing Agent shall agree). The Company has then
been advised on 13 June 2003 by the Placing Agent that certain
Placees need more time than originally anticipated to finalize
their funding arrangement with regard to the completion of the
Placing. Since then, the Placing Agent and the Company have been
negotiating on the extension of the Closing Date. Finally, on 20
June 2003, the Placing Agent and the Company have mutually
agreed to set the Closing Date to 21 July 2003 (or such other
time or date as the Company and the Placing Agent shall agree)
with all Placees having been consulted of. The Placees consist
of 6 independent investors, including five individual investors
and one corporation (which is beneficially owned by three
individuals of which two individuals holding an aggregate of
66.66% shareholding of the corporation are husband and wife).

The five individual investors and the corporation are
independent of one another. The Directors confirm that all the
six Placees and their respective ultimate beneficial owners are
all independent individuals, corporate and / or institutional
investors and are third parties independent of and not connected
with or acting in concert with the directors, chief executive or
substantial shareholders of the Company and its subsidiaries or
any of their respective associates or their concert parties (as
defined in the Listing Rules). Save as mentioned in the
Announcements and this announcement, all other terms in the
Placing Agreement remain unchanged.

As approximately HK$15.5 million of the net proceeds of Placing
is intended to be applied for repayment of liabilities under the
Convertible Bonds due on 30 May 2003, the Company is now making
arrangement with the sole bondholder.

References were also made to the Announcements that the
subscription price of the Placing Shares was set at a price of
HK$0.017 per Share which represents:

   (i) the closing price of HK$0.017 per Share as quoted on the
Stock Exchange on 12 May 2003;

   (ii) at a premium of 5.59% to the average closing price of
the Shares quoted on the Stock Exchange for the ten (10)
consecutive trading days ending on and including 12 May 2003
which was HK$0.0161; and

   (iii) at a premium of 13.33% to the closing price of HK$0.015
per Share as quoted on the Stock Exchange on 20 June 2003.

The Directors believe that the extension (i) will not have any
material impact on the Placing and the operation of the Company;
and (ii) is to the best interests of the Company and its
Shareholders as a whole based on current market condition and to
have the Placing completed.

Further timely announcement will be made in the event of any
change regarding the Placing.

The Stock Exchange has stated that delay in disclosure of the
Extension, which is price-sensitive in nature, might have
constituted a breach of Paragraph 2 of the Listing Agreement and
has reserved its rights to take appropriate action against the
Company and / or the Directors.

According to Wrights Investors' Service, at the end of 2002,
Terabit Access Technology International had negative working
capital, as current liabilities were HK$166.24 million while
total current assets were only HK$161.66 million.  It also
reported losses during the previous 12 months and has not paid
any dividends during the previous 5 fiscal years.

TELEKOMUNIKASI INDONESIA: Appoints PwC as New Auditor
-----------------------------------------------------
KAP Drs. Hadi Sutanto & Rekan of PriceWaterhouseCoopers (PwC)
has accepted the appointment as PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia Tbk
(TLKM)'s auditor for the audit of its 2002 consolidated
financial statements, Bisnis Indonesia reports.

PwC will replace KAP Eddy Pianto - Grant Thornton (KAP Eddy
Pianto) as TLKM's auditor for the purposes of its U.S. SEC
filings. The Board of Commissioners has unanimously approved the
appointment. As noted in TELKOM's press release of June 11,
2003, KAP Eddy Pianto failed to meet the U.S. SEC's
qualification standards for audit firms.

The appointment is subject to finalization of the terms of
engagement in its continuing commitment to bring its Annual
Report on Form 20-F into full compliance with United States
Securities and Exchange Commission (U.S. SEC) requirements.

"TLKM looks forward to PwC starting work in the next few days
with a view to completing an audit of TLKM which complies with
U.S. SEC requirements," TLKM President Director, Kristiono said.

While it is difficult to predict the time period required for
the audit, TELKOM currently expects the audit to take
approximately 2 to 3 months to complete. During the period of
the audit and up to the time TELKOM files its amended Form 20-F,
TELKOM intends to remain in close contact with the U.S. SEC and
the NYSE and all relevant Indonesian and international capital
markets regulators and exchanges.

According to Wrights Investors' Service, at the end of 2002,
P.T. Telekomunikasi Indonesia (Persero) had negative working
capital, as current liabilities were Rp11.02 trillion while
total current assets were only Rp10.98 trillion.

ALL NIPPON: Signs Ticket Purchasing Agreement With C&S
------------------------------------------------------
All Nippon Airways Co. will team up with convenience store
operator C&S Co. on July 1 to allow passengers to book flights
using mobile phone and pay for tickets at the+- retailer's 6,200
outlets, Bloomberg reported Wednesday. The new alliance will
bring to 20,000 the number of convenience stores in Japan where
passengers can pay for All Nippon domestic flights.

ANA passengers can pay for tickets at Lawson Inc. and FamilyMart
Co. convenience store operators. Customers make reservations
using computer terminals installed at the stores. The carrier is
trying to compete with rival Japan Airlines System Corp. and
attract more passengers by making it easier to buy tickets.

All Nippon Airways (ANA) incurred a net loss of 28 billion yen
(US$235 million) last year, but forecast a return to
profitability this year with the help of further cost cutting
measures, TCR-AP reported recently. The airline blamed the
weakening of the United States economy, deflation and slow
economic activity in Japan for its disappointing performance
last year.


AOKI URBAN: Hotel Management Firm Enters Rehabilitation
-------------------------------------------------------

reconstruction and industrial development, Kobe Kosakusyo took
advantage of its technological prowess, getting involved in
manufacturing products related to industrial machinery and
equipment including ships and vehicles. The Company was
responsible for the invention of hot-water car washes and

MITSUBISHI ELECTRIC: Shutting Down Mexican CRT Plant
----------------------------------------------------
Mitsubishi Electric Corporation will shut down its northern
Mexican plant that makes cathode ray tubes (CRT) for computer
monitors on July 15, slashing 1,200 jobs, Reuters said Thursday.
The name of the plant was not mentioned in the report. New
computer and television screen technologies such as plasma
displays and liquid crystal displays are the reason the plant is
closing.  

Cathode ray tubes (known as CRTs) are the devices inside most
televisions and computer monitors that display images on the
screen. The plant, inaugurated in September 1998, has the
capacity to manufacture 2.7 million CRTs a year for 17-inch
computer screens. Most of the production is for export.

reached for comment.

HYNIX SEMICONDUCTOR: Files Complaint Against European Union
-----------------------------------------------------------
The South Korean government will file a complaint with the World
Trade Organization (WTO) next month against a European Union
(EU) move to slap 34.9-percent countervailing tariffs on Hynix
chips, Asia Pulse reports. The EU, which slapped preliminary 33
percent countervailing tariffs on Hynix's chips in April, is
slated to make a final ruling on the issue in mid-August. The EU
action would come on the heels of a similar recent move by the
United States, where the U.S. Department of Commerce decided to
levy 44.71 percent punitive duties on its chips.


HYNIX SEMICONDUCTOR: Involved in Channeling Funds to North Korea
----------------------------------------------------------------
Hyundai Group Chairman Chung Mong Hun and two aides of former
President Kim Dae Jung involved Hynix in illegal channeling of
hundreds of millions of dollars to North Korea, DebtTraders
reports. Kim earned the 2000 Nobel Peace Prize after channeling
a total of $450 million to North Korea, and Hynix provided $100
million of that. In addition to Hynix's $100 million, Hyundai
Merchant Marine and Hyundai Engineering and Construction
provided $200 million and $150 million, respectively. We are
surprised that Hynix had such strong liquidity in 2000.


HYNIX SEMICONDUCTOR: May Take Tariff Issue to WTO by June End
-------------------------------------------------------------
The South Korean government will file a complaint with the World
Trade Organization (WTO) by the end of June against a recent
U.S. decision to impose high punitive tariffs on chips made by
Hynix Semiconductor Inc., Asia Pulse reports, citing Minister
for Trade Hwang Doo-yun. Depending on the results of a ruling on
industrial damage the U.S. International Trade Commission is
slated to put out in July, Korea would appeal to the world trade
body once again.

On June 18, the U.S. Department of Commerce made a final ruling
to slap 44.71-percent countervailing tariffs on Hynix chips,
citing creditor banks' lending of 3.25 trillion won (US$2.73
billion) to the Company as tantamount to government subsidies.


SK GLOBAL: Bailout Plan Does Not Help, Says Sovereign
-----------------------------------------------------
SK Corporation's largest shareholder Sovereign Asset Management
commented that the bailout of SK Global would not stop the
trading arm from going bust because there is no margin of error
in the debt plan, according to DebtTraders. The asset management
Company opposed SK Corporation's plan to swap 850 billion won
($714 million) of debt into SK Global equity.

DebtTraders reports that SK Corp.'s 7.500% bond due in 2006
(YUKO06KRN1) trades between 97 and 99.5. For real-time bond

DRB-HICOM BERHAD: Unit ICB Granted 9-Month Restraining Order
------------------------------------------------------------
DRB-HICOM Berhad wishes to inform that a restraining order (RO)
pursuant to Section 176 of the Companies Act, 1965 has been
granted by the High Court of Malaya to Intrakota Consolidated
Berhad (ICB) on 20 June 2003, valid for a period of 9 months.
ICB is a 67% owned subsidiary of Intrakota Komposit Sdn Bhd
(IKSB) and IKSB is a 70% owned subsidiary of DRB-HICOM.

Details of Events Leading to the Grant of the Court Order

ICB has forwarded a debt-restructuring proposal to the hire
purchase creditors to address its debt position pursuant to the
proposed integration of the public transportation system in
Kuala Lumpur. 90% of the hire purchase creditors have agreed in
principle to the proposal. However, in view of legal proceedings
against ICB taken by a certain hire purchase creditor and to
preserve the public interest, there is a need to restrain any
further legal proceedings while the scheme of arrangement is
being finalized. As such, it was deemed necessary to apply for
an RO under Section 176 of the Companies Act, 1965.

Financial And Operational Impact on the Group

DRB-HICOM does not expect the RO to have any material financial
and/or operational impact on DRB-HICOM Group.

Details of the Proposed Scheme

Subject to the consent of the creditors and any modifications
required to comply with regulatory and legal requirements, the
proposed debt restructuring scheme of ICB would involve the
takeover of bus related assets as part of the completion of the
proposed integration of the public transportation system by the
Government.

The detailed proposed debt-restructuring scheme would be
forwarded to all creditors of ICB for their approval upon the
finalization of the terms.

----------------------------------------------------------------
The Board of Directors of General Soil Engineering Holdings
Berhad informed that the Company and its wholly owned
subsidiary, General Soil Engineering Sdn Bhd (GSESB) have been
served a winding up petition by OCBC Bank (Malaysia) Berhad. The
details are as follows:

1. Winding up petition dated 20 May 2003 was served on GSESB on
23 June 2003.

Winding up petition dated 20 May 2003 was served on the Company
on 23 June 2003.

2. Particular of claim under petition.

OCBC has claimed for a sum of RM2,457,199.11 being the judgment
sum, interest and costs due as at 17.1.2003 pursuant to the
final judgment obtained in the High Court of Kuala Lumpur
pertaining to the defaulted amount under the Credit Facility.

3. Circumstances leading to the filing of winding up petition.

OCBC had via its letter dated 18 December 1998 granted a
restructured credit facility consist of overdraft, trust
receipts and term loan to GSESB with the Company being a
Guarantor to the facility. GSESB had defaulted the payment. On
17.7.2002, OCBC had obtained the Judgment against GSESB and the
Company (as guarantor) from the High Court of Kuala Lumpur High
Court in suit No D7-22-1264-2001. Subsequently GSESB had filed
an appeal but later rejected by the High Court on 6 May 2003.

4. Cost of the investment in GSESB.

Based on the unaudited accounts of the Company at 31 March 2003,
the total cost of investment in GSESB is RM14.3 million.
However, full provision of the diminution in value of the
investment has been made in the accounts of the Company.

5. The financial and operational impact of the winding up
proceedings.

The Group's finance and operations will be severely affected by
the winding-up proceedings.

In the event of winding up proceedings against GSESB, the
immediate financial loss would be the cost of investment of
RM14.3 million. In addition, the overall expected financial
losses will be very substantial, however, such losses are not
quantifiable with reasonable certainty.

GSESB being the principal operating subsidiary of the Company
and the core business held all the requisite licenses and
permits for engineering and construction services. Overall, the
operational impact is expected to be severe such that a revival
of its business prospects may be difficult.

The winding up proceedings by OCBC against the Company will
jeopardize any prospect of revitalization.

6. Proposed steps to be taken by the Company.

The Company is in the midst of implementing a restructuring plan
with the objective to strengthen its financial position. The
Company had announced that it has entered into a Restructuring
Agreement with Dr Chin Mee Leen and Lok Kau Lin. The
restructuring scheme includes amongst others the settlement to
Creditors. Currently, the Company is in the midst of discussing
and negotiating with the bankers including OCBC.
In the event of liquidation, based on the Company analysis, the
Unsecured Financial Institution will be compensated
approximately RM0.03 for every RM1.00 outstanding.

7. The hearing date of the winding up petition against GSESB is
on 14 August 2003.

The hearing date of the winding up petition against the Company
is on 25 September 2003.
