C&A RICHARDS: SimsPartners Appointed as Liquidator
--------------------------------------------------
The Australian Securities and Investments Commission has
obtained orders and declarations by consent in the Supreme Court
of New South Wales (NSW) appointing a liquidator to C&A Richards
Pty Ltd (C&A Richards), the company which operates Cootamundra
Insurance Consultants in Cootamundra, NSW and Insurance Made
Easy* in the Lennox Heads area of NSW.

Mr Anthony Sims, of SimsPartners, has been appointed liquidator
of C&A Richards.

The Court also made orders which permanently restrain C&A
Richards, and the company's directors, Mr Christopher Richards
and Mrs Annette Richards, from conducting a financial services
business, and arranging or holding out as being entitled to
arrange a contract of insurance as an agent of an insurer (which
is authorized to conduct a financial services business), in
contravention of the law.

Rural & General have advised ASIC that they have terminated
their agency agreement with Insurance Made Easy effective from
Friday 29 August 2003. Allianz have also terminated its
agreement with C&A Richards effective from 13 October 2003.

Mr Christopher Richards and Mrs Annette Richards also consented
to orders requiring them to write to each of their clients to
advise them of these orders, and to ask them to check with
insurers that their insurance is in place.

"ASIC will take action to remove unlicensed insurance brokers
and providers of financial services from the marketplace who
fail to meet their obligations under the law", ASIC Director of
Enforcement, Mr Allen Turton said.

These orders follow declarations by the Court that Mr and Mrs
Richards, and C&A Richards, acted as insurance brokers under the
Insurance (Agents and Brokers) Act (IABA) without a license, and
failed to gain a license as required under the financial
services provisions of the Corporations Act.

The Court also declared that Mr and Mrs Richards, and C&A
Richards:

   * represented that they were insurance brokers in
circumstances where they were not registered;

   * arranged contracts of insurance on behalf of a number of
insurers without having a written agreement;

   * failed to pay to insurers the insurance premiums which they
had received from their clients; and

   * failed to inform their clients that the clients' insurance,
which had been arranged on their behalf by C&A Richards, had
been cancelled by the insurer.

Background

All insurance brokers who are currently registered under the
IABA are required to renew their registrations annually until
March 2004, when the financial services provisions of the
Corporations Act will supersede the old IABA provisions.

As of 11 March 2002, any insurance broker who failed or fails to
renew their registration cannot reapply for registration under
the IABA. Instead, all new applicants are now regulated under
the Corporations Act.

Under the Corporations Act, an insurance broker must hold an
Australian Financial Services License (AFSL) or be appropriately
authorized by an AFSL holder to provide the service.

* This business is in no way related to World Assist Travel
Insurance Pty Ltd, trading as 'Insurance Made Easy', in
Rowville, Victoria.


PAN PHARMACEUTICALS: Selim Wants Administrator's Decision Review
----------------------------------------------------------------
At the adjourned Creditors' Meeting of Pan Pharmaceuticals
Limited (In Liquidation) held on September 23, 2003, creditors
resolved that the Deed of Company Arrangement of proposed by Mr
Jim Selim and Mr Fred Bart be rejected and that the Company
enter into Liquidation.

On 25 September 2003, Mr Jim Selim filed an Application in the
New South Wales Supreme Court seeking orders that the court
review the Administrator's decisions in relation to a number of
matters including, the admission of proxies and proofs of debt
at the Creditors' Meeting and the exercise of his casting vote
on the resolution to liquidate the company.

A copy of Selim's Application can be viewed at
http://bankrupt.com/misc/TCRAP_PAN0930.pdf.


VOICENET (AUST): Former Director Dawson Charged
-----------------------------------------------
Mr Alan Dawson, a former managing director of listed company
Voicenet (Aust.) Ltd (Voicenet), appeared Friday in the Perth
Court of Petty Sessions on two charges brought by the Australian
Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC).

Mr Dawson, 52 years old of Peppermint Grove, Western Australia,
was charged with two counts of failing to act honestly in the
discharge of his duties as a director of Voicenet.

ASIC alleges that Mr Dawson failed to ensure Voicenet received
payment of approximately $1 million on conversion of 2 million
Voicenet options into ordinary Voicenet shares. The conversion
occurred on 2 July 1999 and 6 July 1999.

Payment was due from Property Corp International Pty Ltd, a
company related to Mr Dawson, however, ASIC alleges payment was
not made until four months after the options were exercised,
during which time Mr Dawson sold Voicenet shares.

Mr Dawson was not required to enter a plea, and was placed on
personal bail, including a requirement to notify the
Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions (CDPP) of any
intended travel.

The matter, which is being prosecuted by the CDPP, was adjourned
until 10 October 2003 for plea.

ASIC and the CDPP, in conjunction with the Australian Federal
Police, have also obtained a restraining order over the private
residence of Mr Dawson under the Commonwealth Proceeds of Crime
Act, which prevents him from disposing of his interest in the
property, pending determination of the charges.


TRANZ RAIL: John Loughlin Steps Down as CFO
-------------------------------------------
Tranz Rail Chairman Wayne Walden announced Monday that John
Loughlin would step down as Chief Financial Officer of Tranz
Rail from 30 September 2003 and return to being a non-executive
director for the company.

"John stepped in to the role as acting Chief Financial Officer
in April on a temporary basis and the project work he has
undertaken is largely completed. Also the ownership of the
company is becoming increasingly clear as the takeover bid from
Toll Holdings gains momentum."

"John is keen to get back to focusing on his other business
interests and to give more time to his Hawkes Bay-based family.

"The Board is grateful for John's contribution in what have been
extremely challenging times. We are pleased that John has
indicated that he will continue to be available to assist the
company and to overview its progress.

"In the meantime group financial controller Brian Fouhy, will
act as Chief Financial Officer pending the final outcome of the
Toll takeover bid," said Mr Walden.


TRANZ RAIL: 2003 Annual Report Released
---------------------------------------
Tranz Rail Holdings Limited released on Monday its 2003 annual
report. Below is Chairman Wayne Walden's letter to the
shareholders:

"Tranz Rail concluded the 2003 financial year with an improved
financial performance, heads of agreement in place with the
Crown on a joint plan for restructuring and developing the New
Zealand railway system that included the immediate placement of
a secured deposit of $44 million with the Company, and with
shareholders considering an offer from Toll Group (NZ) Limited
(Toll) to take over the Company. It has been an eventful year.

The improved performance in the 2003 financial year fell short
of the forecast provided to shareholders at the beginning of the
year.

   * Operating profit from trading increased from $25.2 million
to $40.0 million - against the Company's rights issue prospectus
forecast of $53.1 million.

   * Net loss after tax improved from $122.7 million to $2.6
million.

The financial result for the 2003 financial year was largely
influenced by adverse changes in the external business
environment. Compared with the prospectus forecast, revenue was
affected by drought, a strike at a customer's plant, changes in
shipping port calls and increased competition on the Cook
Strait.

Negative cost factors compared with the prospectus forecast
were:

   * lower than expected savings in terminal operations;

   * increased insurance costs mainly from premium increases - a
problem confronting most businesses;

   * costs associated with the disposal of certain assets and
businesses which did not occur; and
increased interest costs arising from unavoidable increases in
   * debt and interest rates as

a consequence of the tight liquidity position experienced during
the year, and costs of debt refinancing;

   * increased taxation expense due to the recognition of an
impairment of tax losses.

These negatives were partially offset by the positive impact of
foreign exchange rates on leases and fuel, lower operating costs
reflecting lower freight volumes compared with forecast,
releases of provisions not required, and higher than anticipated
depreciation savings from asset write downs. Surplus asset sales
initiated during the year did not eventuate. Negotiations were
commenced to sell the Tranz Link Distribution Services Group
business, the Tranz Metro Wellington business, Wellington
railway station and specialist rolling stock equipment. On 20
June 2003, your Directors decided to suspend the asset sales
programmed until resolution is achieved in respect of the Crown
track network transaction and the offer made to shareholders by
Toll.

In the 2003 financial year, the Company's operating cash flow
improved by $30.8 million on the previous year's level. This
improvement resulted from better working capital management,
increased revenue and reduced operating costs. Total debt was
reduced by $24.3 million, mainly as a result of a favorable
movement in the NZD/USD exchange rate. Included in the total
debt is the secured deposit from the Crown that was received in
June 2003. The gearing of the Company also improved with equity
at June 2003 being 44.6% of total assets compared to 39.1% at
the end of the previous financial year.

The Company achieved three major financial restructuring
objectives in the course of the year: the negotiation of new
bank facilities through to June 2004, the renegotiations of the
terms of lease on the ferry Aratere, and a capital raising of
$65 million by a 5 for 7 rights issue of new shares at 75 cents
a share. The other significant achievement of the year under
review was the negotiation of a heads of agreement between the
Company and the Crown on a proposal for new arrangements
regarding the ownership, operation, maintenance and development
of the rail track network. The track and network ownership
arrangements proposed in the heads of agreement between the
Crown and the Company required shareholders' consideration and
approval before they could be finalized. Details of the proposal
were provided to shareholders in the Target Company Statement of
4 August 2003.

On signing the heads of agreement, the Crown paid to Tranz Rail
a deposit of $44 million in respect of assets to be acquired if
the proposal proceeded, and if the proposal does not proceed,
that deposit plus interest is to be repaid by the Company on 30
June 2004. Negotiations between the Company and the Crown on the
details of new track ownership and operation arrangements were
suspended pending the outcome of a takeover bid for the Company
from Toll. In developing its bid, Toll has negotiated even more
beneficial terms on an exclusive basis for track network
ownership arrangements.

The Toll takeover bid is the second such bid to be made for the
Company during the year under review. An earlier bid from Rail
America was withdrawn before your Directors were able to make
a recommendation on it. Toll lodged its bid soon after the Rail
America withdrawal, initially offering 75 cents per share, which
was subsequently raised to 95 cents per share. Your Directors
did not recommend acceptance of this bid for reasons explained
in the Target Company Statement of 4 August 2003. Your Directors
sought to encourage competing offers for shareholders to
consider. On 5 September 2003, Toll increased its offer price to
$1.10 per share. In the interim, no superior competing offer had
emerged.

Also on 5 September 2003, your Directors unanimously recommended
that shareholders accept he new Toll offer. Those Directors who
currently hold shares in the Company have also indicated that
they will accept the Toll offer for their entire shareholdings.
The $1.10 offered represents a value for Tranz Rail that is
greater than the underlying valuation f the Company set out in
the Grant Samuel Report of 25 July 2003 and is at the upper end
of he range of between $1.00 and $1.11 per share that Grant
Samuel considers would be fair value or the Company as it would
be under the terms of the Company's agreement with the Crown.
Your Directors consider that the Toll offer provides greater
certainty of value for shareholders.

At the date of this Annual Report, Toll had still to achieve
acceptance of its offer by 90% of the Company's shareholders -
the threshold it has set for finalization of its offer. The
current losing date for the offer is Friday, 10 October 2003.
While shareholders are considering the proposal from Toll, a
Tranz Rail business plan is in place to deliver further
performance improvement. It should be noted that although profit
forecasts provided at the start of the 2003 financial year were
not achieved, the result demonstrates an underlying improvement
in the Company's efficiency. In the absence of any material
change, an operating profit from trading of $48 million has been
forecast for the 2004 financial year on the basis of the current
business plan.

Finally, I would like to express my thanks to Tranz Rail's
customers, shareholders, management and staff."

Remarks:

1. LOSS PER SHARE

The calculation of basic loss per share is based on the net loss
attributable to shareholders for the period of HK$46,721,000
(six months ended 30th June, 2002: HK$33,284,000), and the
weighted average of 575,604,817 (six months ended 30th June,
2002: 571,184,927) ordinary shares in issue throughout the
period.

Diluted loss per share amount for the six months ended 30th
June, 2003 has not been disclosed as no diluting events existed
during the period.  Diluted loss per share amount for the six
months ended 30th June, 2002 has not been shown because the
options outstanding during that period had no dilutive effect on
the basic loss per share for that period.

2. COMPARATIVE AMOUNTS

In order to conform with current period's presentation,
HK$5,904,000 which related to provision for an amount due from a
jointly-controlled entity, was reclassified from other operating
gains, net to separate line disclosure after the loss from
operating activities for the six months ended 30th June, 2002.

During the year ended 31st December 2002, the directors
considered it a fairer presentation to include in the cost of
sales, certain costs incurred directly for television programme
production and the operation of a satellite television channel,
which in the previous years were classified as administrative
expenses.  Consequently, approximately HK$7,926,000,
representing the aforesaid direct cost of operations, were
reclassified from the administrative expenses to the cost of
sales for the period ended 30th June, 2002.


FAITH GO: Winding Up Petition Pending

BANK BUKOPIN: Pefindo Assigns `idBBB' Rating to Rp236B Debt
-----------------------------------------------------------
PT Pefindo Credit Rating Indonesia assigned `idBBB+' ratings for
general obligation, 5-year Rp319.0 billion bond I/2003, and 5-
year Rp45 billion syariah bond of PT Bank BUKOPIN (BPIN). At the
same time, PEFINDO assigned `idBBB' rating to the bank's 10-year
subordinated debt amounting to Rp236 billion.

The ratings action is supported by BPIN's strong franchise value
in cooperative, small and micro enterprise market, well-managed
assets quality, and favorable capitalization. Mitigating factor
for the above ratings is maturity mismatch in the bank's assets
and liabilities. After completed its recapitalization program in
FY01, BPIN's total assets had grown to Rp14.1 trillion in FY02
from Rp9.6 trillion in FY01 and reached Rp13.7 trillion in 1Q03.

Total loans outstanding also grew to Rp9.7 trillion in 1Q03 from
Rp9.5 trillion in FY01 and Rp5.2 trillion in FY00. BPIN's
operation is currently supported by 204 offices, operated under
30 branches in 19 provinces in Indonesia. In addition, BPIN has
236 Swamitra outlets in 17 provinces and around 7,200 ATMs
network (including its own ATM of 200 units, ATM BCA and ATM
Bersama). Throughout FY03, BPIN plans to open another 6 branches
to further support its small-scale lending exposures in
Tasikmalaya, Probolinggo, Mataram, Tegal, Pare-pare, and Manado.
BPIN is currently owned by Kopelindo (47.8%), GoI (21.7%),
Yanatera BULOG (14.4%), Kopkapindo (8.8%), INKUD (4.7%), and
others (2.6%).


INDOFARMA TBK: Seeks Rp240B Fresh Loan for Debt Refinancing
-----------------------------------------------------------
PT Indofarma Tbk is in negotiations with a bank for a new loan
of Rp240 billion to refinance its debt, Bisnis Indonesia
reports, quoting President Director M Dani Pratomo.

Pratomo, who failed to disclose the bank's name, said that if
the company could get new loan then medium term notes (MTN)
issue would not be necessary.

Earlier, Finance Director Sudibyo announced the company's plan
to issue Rp100 billion to Rp150 billion MTN to finance the
interest of the company's debt.

"We will use the MTN as bridging financing, and the volume will
not that big. Then we will finance the MTN using some common
bonds we will issue soon. By issuing such MTN, the company would
reduce the interest cost by Rp8.6 billion," Sudibyo said,
stressing that if MTN's interest rate is 14%, the Company will
be able to reduce the interest cost of Rp8.6 billion.

Indofarma owes Bank Mandiri, BCA and Bukopin Rp215 billion, with
the interest rate of 15.5% to 16.5%.


TUNAS FINANCINDO: Rp500B Bond I/2003 Assigned `idBBB+'
------------------------------------------------------
PT Pefindo assigned `idBBB+' ratings for PT Tunas Financindo
Sarana and its Bond I/2003 amounting to Rp500 billion. The
ratings reflect the Company's well-diversified customer base
that resulted in manageable asset quality, adequate capital base
and moderate leverage.

Support from Tunas Group, one of the largest automotive
principal representatives in Indonesia with total assets of
Rp1.3 trillion as of June 30, 2003, has also been incorporated
into the ratings. The ratings, however, are slightly constrained
by intensifying competition and high reliance on banking sector
for funding, although it is now more flexible by entering debt
market.  Historically, TUFI was established as a credit
department of Tunas Ridean in 1985. Furthermore, in 1989 TUFI
obtained a multifinance license and changed its name to PT Tunas
Financindo Corp before it became PT Tunas Financindo Sarana in
2002. As to date, TUFI's shareholders consist of PT Tunas Ridean
Tbk (75%) and PT Tunas Mobilindo Parama (25%).

The Company business is to provide consumer financing and
operating lease for fleet customers (since FY00). To support its
operation, currently TUFI has 13 branches and 1 sub-branch for
its consumer financing business, and 1 branch for its operating
lease. All of its branches are located in Java and Sumatera.

and puts the company's customer services at the front of the
Japanese automotive industry. The center currently deals with

ASIANA AIRLINES: Closing Seoul-Guam Route on Tuesday
----------------------------------------------------
The South Korean government has approved Asiana Airline's
application to end its regular flights between Seoul and Guam,
effective September 30, reports the Korea Herald, citing the
Ministry of Construction and Transportation. With the occupancy
ratio falling to the 50-percent level this year, Asiana
suspended its Guam service in late March amid dropping travel
due to fears over the severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS).

Asiana eventually applied for the permanent closing of the
Seoul- Guam route, citing a steady drop in demand for travel to
the Pacific island. "South Korea's outbound travelers are
increasingly preferring Chinese and Southeast Asian
destinations, while the demand for trips to Guam is on the
decline," said an Asiana official. Following Asiana's formal
withdrawal from the Guam route, Korean Air will become the only
Korean carrier to service the Seoul-Guam line with seven weekly
flights.


KOOKMIN BANK: Bank Shares Tumble
--------------------------------
With analysts downgrading their forecasts on Kookmin Bank's
yearly profit and the bank's alleged insider trading set to face
investigation, shares of the largest Korean lender tumbled to
5.04 percent to finish at 37,700 won on the Stock Exchange, the
lowest close since August 12, according to the Korea Herald.

The price drop followed a series of news that the nation's
financial watchdog would probe Kookmin for its alleged insider
trading as well as local think tanks' estimates that the bank
would post an annual loss in 2003.

LG Investment & Securities forecast on Friday that Kookmin would
post about 48.2 billion won ($41.9 million) in net losses this
year, reversing its projection from the previous 109.8 billion
won in annual profits. The brokerage explained that the nation's
leading lender, which recorded 1.31 trillion won in the black
last year, would continue to suffer from rising bad-loan
provisions, particularly those from credit-card problems,
through the rest of the year.


KOOKMIN BANK: FSC Approves Merger With Kookmin Credit Card
----------------------------------------------------------
The Financial Supervisory Commission (FSC) has approved the
merger between Kookmin Bank and Kookmin Credit Card, the Korea
Times reported on Friday. The marriage would be helpful to the
bank's financial soundness by removing conflicts and
duplications between Kookmin Credit Card and Kookmin Bank's BC
card unit. Kookmin Credit Card saw its overdue loan ratio reach
13.7 percent in August, up 2.7 percentage points from a month
ago.


SK NETWORKS: Sheraton Walkerhill Hotel For Sale
-----------------------------------------------
The creditors of SK Networks (formerly, SK Global) aims to sell
the Sheraton Grande Walkerhill Hotel for an estimated price of
300-400 billion won, according to Digital Chosun. The deluxe
hotel in Seoul is a subsidiary of the SK group. SK Group
Chairman Chey Tae-won transferred his stake in the hotel to the
creditors as collateral for additional funds with which to
rescue SK Networks. The creditors said they would prefer to sell
off the stake before the end of this year.

Chey's collateralized stake in the hotel is 40.7 percent. SK
Networks hold another 9.68 percent in the hotel, bringing the
total saleable stake to 50.38 percent. The creditors expect the
stake to bring in about 300-400 billion won. Creditors said that
about 10 domestic and foreign firms have already expressed their
interest in the hotel, adding that several subsidiaries of the
SK group could form a consortium to take over the governing
stake.


KOOKMIN BANK: MOFE Aims to Dispose of Government-owned Stock
------------------------------------------------------------
The Ministry of Finance and Economy (MOFE) plans to dispose of
government-owned Kookmin Bank stock in the OTC market to secure
public finance and complete the privatization of commercial
banks, the ministry said in a statement.

MOFE will distribute the Request for Proposal (RFP) to major
domestic and foreign securities corporations seeking lead
manager nominations on September 8, 2003.

MOFE retains 30,623,761 of 328,258,685 shares or 9.33 percent of
the total. Proceeds derived from the sale of 1.6 trillion won in
Kookmin Bank stock has been appropriated in this year's budget
revenue, based on a weighted thirty day average price of 53,895
from September of last year.

MOFE plans to complete the lead manager nomination evaluation
process by early October including the screening of
qualifications and interviews, sometimes referred to as a known
as beauty contest.

Upon the completion of the nomination process, MOFE will
coordinate a multifaceted sales strategy with the nominated lead
managers by the end of October, given the potential impact on
the market.

Since market conditions will determine when the best time will
be to begin sales procedures, the exact date will be announced
later.

ACTACORP HOLDINGS: Acquires Shipyard to Enhance Earnings
--------------------------------------------------------
Actacorp Holdings Berhad refers to the previous announcements
dated 27 December 2002 and 17 July 2003 in relation to the
Proposed Restructuring Scheme of AHB. It was earlier announced
that the Company had been requested by the Securities Commission
(SC) to consider other quality assets to be injected into AHB,
in addition to Menara PSCI to regularize the financial
conditions of AHB as required under Practice Note No. 4/2001
(PN4) of the Listing Requirements of the Kuala Lumpur Stock
Exchange (KLSE).

AHB had earlier identified the Proposed Acquisition of PSCA,
which is an integral part of the Proposed Restructuring Scheme
with the intention of injecting Menara PSCI to provide a steady
flow of investment income to NewCo. NewCo is the investment
holding company to be identified as the vehicle to facilitate
the Proposed Restructuring Scheme of AHB and eventually take
over the listing status of AHB on the Main Board of the KLSE.

In line with this, the Company had on 26 September 2003 entered
into a conditional Sale and Purchase Agreement (SPA) with PSCSB
to acquire a shipyard comprising two (2) pieces of leasehold
industrial land together with buildings erected thereon, held
under Lot No. 3222, PN 649 and Lot No. 9777, HS(D) 6981, both in
Mukim 13, District of Timur Laut, Pulau Pinang (Shipyard) for a
purchase consideration of RM55.70 million to be satisfied by way
of an issuance of 111,400,000 new NewCo Shares at an issue price
of RM0.50 per NewCo Share.

Concurrent with the SPA, AHB had also on 26 September 2003
entered into a conditional Tenancy Agreement (TA) with PSCSB for
the rental of the Shipyard to PSCSB for a period of up to twelve
(12) years from the date of completion of the Proposed
Acquisition of Shipyard.

On 26 September 2003, AHB and PSCI had also concurrently entered
into a Supplemental Agreement (SA) in relation to the Proposed
Acquisition of PSCA. The said SA is supplemental to the
conditional Share Sale Agreement (SSA) dated 27 December 2002
relating to the Proposed Acquisition of PSCA. Pursuant to the
SA, PSCI group of companies (PSCI Group) has agreed to award
certain construction contracts to Desa PSC with the intention to
activate Desa PSC as the construction arm of the PSCI Group.

The Proposed Acquisition of Shipyard has been proposed to be
included as part of the Proposed Restructuring Scheme of AHB to
enhance the profitability of NewCo and its proposed subsidiaries
(NewCo Group), in addition to the profit contribution from
Menara PSCI. The Construction Contracts are expected to further
enhance the future earnings of the NewCo Group.

As the Proposed Acquisition of Shipyard are deemed related party
transactions, OSK Securities Berhad, has been appointed by the
Company as the Independent Adviser to advise the minority
shareholders of AHB in relation to the Proposed Acquisition of
Shipyard.

PM Securities Sdn Bhd is the Main Adviser for the Proposed
Acquisition of Shipyard as well as the Proposed Restructuring
Scheme of AHB. The applications to the relevant authorities in
respect of the Proposed Acquisition of Shipyard are expected to
be submitted within one (1) month from the date of this
announcement.

BERJAYA LAND: Proposes Revised B-Land Inter-Company Settlement
--------------------------------------------------------------
Pursuant to the announcement made by Berjaya Group Berhad
(BGroup) on its proposed restructuring exercise on 28 June 2002,
B-Land had on 11 July 2002, made an announcement in relation to
the following proposals:

Part A

   (i) Proposed B-Land Irredeemable Convertible Unsecured Loan
Stocks (ICULS) Offer for Sale;
   (ii) Proposed B-Land ICULS Early Conversion; and
   (iii) Proposed B-Land Bonus Issue.

Part B

   (i) Proposed B-Land Inter-Company Settlement; and
   (ii) Proposed B-Land Capital Distribution Scheme.

The proposals under Part A and Part B above are collectively
referred to as the "B-Land Proposals".

On 26 August 2003, CIMB had, on behalf of the Board of Directors
(Board) of BGroup, announced a revision to BGroup's proposed
restructuring exercise (BGroup Revised Proposals), which
includes, amongst others, a proposed revision to the settlement
of inter-company balance due to B-Land (BGroup Revised Proposals
Announcement).

In the BGroup Revised Proposals Announcement, BGroup proposes
that the inter-company balance due to B-Land be settled through
the issuance of approximately RM2,054 million 0% ICULS at the
nominal value of RM0.50 each in a newly incorporated company
(Newco) (0% Newco ICULS) instead of the previously announced 2%
ICULS at the nominal value of RM1.00 each in Newco (2% Newco
ICULS) as full and final settlement of the inter-company balance
due to B-Land (Proposed Revised B-Land Inter-Company
Settlement). In view thereof, the Proposed B-Land Capital
Distribution Scheme will involve the distribution of 0% Newco
ICULS rather than the 2% Newco ICULS.

Save for the above-mentioned proposed revisions, there are no
further changes to the B-Land Proposals as announced on 11 July
2002.

Pursuant to the BGroup Revised Proposals, CIMB, on behalf of the
Board of B-Land is pleased to announce the Proposed Revised B-
Land Inter-Company Settlement, the details of which are set out
in the ensuing sections.

DETAILS OF THE PROPOSED REVISED B-LAND INTER-COMPANY SETTLEMENT

The Proposed Revised B-Land Inter-Company Settlement, which is
the settlement by BGroup to B-Land of its inter-company balance
due to B-Land, involves the issuance of approximately RM2,054
million 0% Newco ICULS as full and final settlement of the
inter-company balance due to B-Land.

The inter-company balance was accumulated over a period of time
and is essentially unsecured, with interest bearing of
approximately 6.75% per annum and with no fixed term of
repayment.

As at 30 April 2003, the amount of inter-company balance owing
to B-Land is approximately RM1,527 million. Based on the
assumption that the Proposed Revised B-Land Inter-Company
Settlement will be completed by 30 June 2004, the estimated
inter-company balance will be approximately RM1,617 million.
The 0% Newco ICULS to be issued pursuant to the Proposed Revised
B-Land Inter-Company Settlement shall have the same terms and
conditions as those to be issued pursuant to the BGroup Revised
Proposals, but will not be entitled to participate in the
proposed rights issue to be implemented by Newco thereof.

The indicative principal terms of the 0% Newco ICULS are set out
in Table 1 at http://bankrupt.com/misc/TCRAP_Berjaya0930.doc.

RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH THE PROPOSED REVISED B-LAND INTER-COMPANY
SETTLEMENT

The risks associated with the Proposed Revised B-Land Inter-
Company Settlement include but may not be limited to the
following:

Issue Price and Market Price of the 0% Newco ICULS

The issue price for the 0% Newco ICULS has been fixed at RM0.50
each. There is no assurance that the market price of the 0%
Newco ICULS will remain at or above the issue price upon or
subsequent to their listing.

Restriction on the Convertibility of the 0% Newco ICULS

In compliance with the provisions under Section 17 of the Act,
it is stipulated that a corporation cannot be a member of a
company, which is its holding company. As such, as long as B-
Land continues to be a subsidiary of Newco after the BGroup
Revised Proposals, B-Land is not allowed to hold any new
ordinary shares of RM1.00 each in Newco (Newco Shares) that may
arise from the subsequent conversion of the 0% Newco ICULS held
by B-Land. In such circumstances, B-Land will need to dispose of
the 0% Newco ICULS held by it prior to its maturity. The
subsequent disposal(s) of the remaining 0% Newco ICULS held by
B-Land will depend on the market price of the 0% Newco ICULS
upon their listing. There is no assurance that the market price
of the 0% Newco ICULS will remain at or above the issue price
upon or subsequent to their listing.

EFFECTS OF THE PROPOSED REVISED B-LAND INTER-COMPANY SETTLEMENT

Share Capital and Shareholding Structure

The Proposed Revised B-Land Inter-Company Settlement will not
have any effect on the issued and paid-up share capital and
shareholding structure of B-Land.

Net Tangible Assets (NTA)

The Proposed Revised B-Land Inter-Company Settlement will not
have any effect on the NTA per ordinary share of RM1.00 each in
B-Land (B-Land Share) of B-Land and its subsidiary and
associated companies.

Earnings

The Proposed Revised B-Land Inter-Company Settlement is expected
to be completed by the last financial quarter of 2004. There
will be a reduction in future inter-company interest income (net
of tax) arising from the Proposed Revised B-Land Inter-Company
Settlement.

APPROVALS REQUIRED

The Proposed Revised B-Land Inter-Company Settlement is subject
to the approvals of the following parties:

   (i) the shareholders of B-Land at an extraordinary general
meeting (EGM) to be convened; and

   (ii) any other relevant authorities, if required.
The Proposed Revised B-Land Inter-Company Settlement is
conditional upon the following:

    (a) The BGroup Revised Proposals; and
    (b) The proposed exemptions to Tan Sri Dato' Seri Vincent

under the Malaysian Code on Take-Overs and Mergers, 1998 that
may arise from the BGroup Revised Proposals.

PHILIPPINE LONG: In Talks With AT&T and MCI-Worldcom
----------------------------------------------------
Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co. (PLDT) is negotiating
with U.S. carriers AT&T and MCI-Worldcom on the rates PLDT will
charge for calls from the U.S. to the Philippines, the
Philippine Star newspaper reported.

An unnamed PLDT official said an agreement on settlement rates
and payment of past dues to PLDT would be necessary if it were
to start allowing calls from the U.S. carriers. AT&T owes PLDT
between US$6.00-US$7.00 million and MCI US$3.00-US$4.00 million
in unpaid termination charges.

The US Federal Communications Commission earlier ordered U.S.
carriers to suspend payments to local carriers for processed
inbound calls from the U.S. The decision was based on claims by
the U.S. carriers that PLDT and other local Telco's were
blocking calls from two U.S. carriers to force them to pay
higher termination fees.

NEPTUNE ORIENT: Clarifies Vessel Collision Report
-------------------------------------------------
Neptune Orient Lines (NOL) announced the report from Shipping
Times regarding the vessel collision involving an APL chartered-
in vessel at Chittagong has negligible financial impact on the
Group.

Its subsidiary, APL, neither owns nor operates the feeder vessel
involved in the collision. As such any liabilities arising from
the incident would accrue to the vessel's Owner and Operator and
not to APL. The Owner of the vessel is currently handling the
matter with the Port authorities. There has been no significant
impact to APL's customers or services as all cargo was
discharged safely after the incident. The vessel involved in the
incident has since been off-hired by APL in accordance with the
terms of the charter and replaced.

For the full year 2002, NOL posted a staggering loss of US$330
million as its container liner unit APL Liner struggled with
record-low freight rates caused by overcapacity and exposure to
the worst-hit trans-Pacific routes.

WEE POH: Issues Group Performance Update
----------------------------------------
Wee Poh Holdings Limited has recorded a turnover of S$53.87
million for the full year ended 30 June 2003, a decrease of
S$7.47 million or 12.2 percent over the corresponding period.

The decrease in turnover was due mainly to two of the Group's
previously core subsidiaries, W&P Piling Pte Ltd (WPP) and WP
Conc-Pact Pte Ltd (WPCP) being placed in liquidation by
creditors. As such, the results of these two subsidiaries were
only taken into account up-till the point of liquidation and
deconsolidated from the Group as at 30 June 2003.

As the Group was also undergoing a restructuring plan during the
year, it was discouraged from tendering for projects, as any
award of any material contracts will be held in abeyance till
the completion of the restructuring exercise. As there were
lesser projects on hand during the year, the Group had focused
its resources on completing the present projects on hand, on
time and on budget, to minimize losses where possible. Emphasis
was also made on cutting wastages and better project management.
The results of these measures are shown in the lower gross loss
margin of 6.7 percent during the period under review (2002 : 17
percent).

Results from operations have improved by S$30.2 million, due
mainly to:

(a) A net gain of S$11.3 million recognized on the
deconsolidation of WPP and WPCP, the Group's loss making
subsidiaries;

(b) Improvement in the gross margin by S$6.9 million;

(c) Reduction in allowance for / write off of bad and doubtful
receivables by S$6.6 million;

(d) A one-off impairment recognized on the Group's property last
year; and

(e) Reduction of other administrative expenses due to continuing
efforts by management in reducing operating costs.

The Group's trade receivables and payables and property, plant
and equipment have reduced largely due to the liquidation of the
two subsidiaries.

During the year, the Company also disposed of a freehold
property to repay bank loans amounting to S$2.5 million.

Tuesday's edition of the TCR-Asia Pacific delivers a list of
indicative prices for bond issues that reportedly trade well
below par.  Prices are obtained by TCR-AP editors from a variety
of outside sources during the prior week we think are reliable.
Those sources may not, however, be complete or accurate.  The
Tuesday Bond Pricing table is compiled on the Saturday prior to
publication.  Prices reported are not intended to reflect actual
trades.  Prices for actual trades are probably different.  Our
objective is to share information, not make markets in publicly
traded securities. Nothing in the TCR-Asia Pacific constitutes
an offer or solicitation to buy or sell any security of any
kind.  It is likely that some entity affiliated with a TCR-Asia
Pacific editor holds some position in the issuers' public debt
and equity securities about which we report.
