AMP GROUP: Moody's Reviews Rating for Possible Upgrade
------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has placed the long-term ratings of
the AMP Group under review for possible upgrade.

The review reflects AMP's successful repurchase of A$747 million
of its offshore bonds, following a reverse tender process
conducted last week. Moody's says that the repurchase represents
a sizeable reduction in debt levels from AMP's pre-demerger
position. The review also reflects AMP's success in maintaining
its very strong branding and position in the Australian market.
The demerger process appears to have had a limited effect on
AMP's brand image in terms of its effect on new business
volumes. The company's diversified and extensive distribution
approach, as well as its product offerings, positions it for
continued growth.

The rating agency said that its review for possible upgrade
would focus on AMP's financial and business strategy, 2004 half-
year financial results, the sustainability of current lower
leverage ratios and the ability to maintain the flow of new
business. Also, Moody's will assess AMP's ability to sustain the
earnings quality and solvency levels at its key operating
entities, including its flagship company AMP Life.

The following ratings were placed under review for possible
upgrade:

AMP Life Ltd -- Insurance financial strength A1

AMP Group Holdings Ltd -- Senior debt Baa1

AMP (UK) Finance Services plc -- Senior debt Baa1

AMP Group Finance Services Ltd -- Senior debt Baa1; Subordinated
debt Baa2

AMP Bank Ltd -- Long-term deposit rating Baa1

Long-term senior debt -- Baa1

Long-term subordinated debt -- Baa2

Long-term junior subordinated debt -- Baa2

The following ratings have been affirmed with a continuing
stable outlook

AMP (UK) Finance Services plc -- P-2 commercial paper

AMP Group Finance Services Ltd -- P-2 commercial paper

AMP Bank Ltd -- P-2 commercial paper

BRAMBLES INDUSTRIES: Streamlines CHEP Organization
--------------------------------------------------
Brambles Industries Plc announced changes in the organizational
structure of its pallet and container pooling business, CHEP, to
streamline business processes.

A key component is the creation of two regional groups for CHEP,
each reporting directly to Brambles' Chief Executive Officer,
David Turner. They are:

- CHEP Europe, comprising the operations in Europe, Africa and
Asia-Pacific; and

- CHEP Americas, comprising the operations in North and South
America.

Mark Luby, who is successfully leading the restructuring of CHEP
Europe, will become President of the combined CHEP Europe,
Africa and Asia-Pacific organization. David Mezzanotte, who has
successfully led the turnaround in CHEP USA, will become
President of CHEP Americas.

Both Mark and David will join the Brambles Executive Committee.

The CHEP global management structure will be eliminated,
although certain key functions such as IS, Marketing, Product
Development and Operations will continue to be managed globally
under the new structure, reporting to Mark and David. Victor
Mendes, CEO of CHEP, will complete the transition of his
executive responsibilities on 30 June 2004 but will be available
for a further three months to consult with the Board, as
required.

David Turner said, "The work that Victor and the team have done
to refocus CHEP on its core competencies and the fundamental
drivers of growth means the business is now in a stronger
position to deliver sustainable growth and sound returns for
shareholders. Victor has contributed significantly to CHEP in a
period of very positive change and is leaving the group with our
very best wishes.

"The reorganization of CHEP will result in increased regional
accountability and operational efficiency, and reflects
Brambles' continuing focus on operating with the most cost-
effective organization."

The pre-tax cost of the reorganization is estimated to be 6
million / A$15 million, and will be included as an operating
exceptional item under UK GAAP and as a significant item under
Australian GAAP in the accounts to 30 June 2004. The
reorganization is expected to result in a pre-tax benefit at
least equal to the cost of the reorganization within 12 months.

Brambles reaffirm its full year outlook, as announced in its 26
May 2004 trading update. In that update, Brambles confirmed that
CHEP is expected to deliver strong growth in profit in the
second half of 2004 (compared with both the first half of 2004
and the second half of 2003) due to good performance in all
regions. Brambles' outlook for the year ended 30 June 2004
remains unchanged from the Interim Results statement on 25
February 2004.

Notes:

(a) Profit is defined as profit before interest, tax, goodwill
amortization and exceptional items.

(b) Relative profit performances in this announcement are based
on constant currency comparisons. Constant currency is
calculated by translating foreign currency results at the
exchange rates applicable during the last year.

NATIONAL AUSTRALIA: Director Brian Clark To Stand Down
------------------------------------------------------
National Australia Bank (NAB) announced that Dr. Brian Clark
would stand down as a non-executive Director in August because
of extended commitments with Vodafone in Asia.

Dr. Clark was Chief Executive of Vodafone Pacific and located in
Sydney when he joined the National Australia Bank Board in
October 2001.

During 2003, Brian was appointed Chief Executive of Vodafone
Asia Pacific and relocated from Sydney to Tokyo.  Last night,
Vodafone announced that he would become President and Chief
Executive of Vodafone Holdings K.K. and Vodafone K.K. in Tokyo.

The National Australia Bank's Chairman, Mr. Graham Kraehe, paid
tribute to Dr. Clark's valuable contribution to the Board over
the last two and a half years.

"I and my fellow Directors are sad to see Dr. Clark leave the
Board but we realize that his new appointment with Vodafone will
extend the time he must spend in Tokyo and make it difficult for
him to make the necessary time commitment to the National," Mr.
Kraehe said.  "Brian will attend the August meeting of the Board
and formally resign at that time.  His replacement will be
considered as part of the Board renewal program currently
underway."

Dr. Clark thanked his fellow Directors for their support and
wished them well in rebuilding the reputation of the National.

"I have been delighted to be a member of the National Board over
the last two and a half years and I am disappointed that I will
not have the necessary time available to devote to the National
as a result of my extended commitments with Vodafone," he said.
"I remain committed to the National, its shareholders, its
customers and its people.  In spite of recent events, this is a
great company.  I am sure John Stewart and his team will restore
the reputation of the National.

"Following discussions with Graham Kraehe, we agreed that the
best course of action was for me to resign and focus on my
Vodafone commitments and allow the National to appoint another
Director to replace me.  In particular, I would like to express
my strong support for Graham Kraehe and my fellow Directors."

BANK NIAGA: To Launch Rights Issue
----------------------------------
In line with its aim to strengthen its capital, Bank Niaga has
announced its plans to launch in August a rights issue to raise
IDR1 trillion (US$21.8 billion), Indoexchange reports.

According to Bank Niaga vice president Hashemi Albakri, the bank
needs to bolster its capital to comply with Indonesian Banking
Architecture requirements.

On the other hand, state-held PT Perusahaan Pengelola Aset (PPA)
said it wants to sell its Bank Niaga stake, since the Indonesian
government has no funds to follow the corporate action of the
bank.

According to PPA President Mohammad Syahrial, the rights issue
could dilute its shares in Bank Niaga to 14 percent.


BANK PERMATA: Anwar OK With Temasek's Permata Bid
-------------------------------------------------
Bank Indonesia deputy senior governor Anwar Nasution said the
Singaporean government's investment arm, Temasek Holdings,
should not be prevented from bidding for Bank Permata, The
Jakarta Post reported.

According to Mr. Anwar, there is no reason to discriminate
against Temasek just because it is foreign and already owns
stakes in two other large Indonesian banks, Bank Danamon and
Bank Internasional Indonesia (BII).

"Why not (let Temasek acquire the bank) if they make a better
bid than the other investors? What's important is how to fix our
banking situation," he said.

Citing how Temasek fixed Bank Danamon and BII, Mr. Anwar
insisted the government should not be too choosy as to who buys
Permata stakes considering that it badly needs funds to fix its
budget deficit. He added that if the government wants the
country's banking sector reformed, it should not depend on local
investors who might lack the funds and the expertise.

Mr. Anwar's statements are in contrast to the suggestion of
legislators to prioritize local banks over foreign banks in the
Permata bid, saying that it would encourage local banks to enter
global banking.

Temasek, which owns 62 percent of Bank Danamon and 51 percent of
BII, is one of the 19 investors that expressed interest in Bank
Permata. Local Banks such as BNI, Bank Central Asia, Bank Panin
and Bank Artha Graha are also eyeing stakes in the bank.


BUMI RESOURCES: Sees US$1.3B Income This Year
---------------------------------------------
After winning a number of coal sales deals, PT Bumi Resources is
projecting a US$1.3 billion consolidated income this year, Asia
Pulse says.

BUMI finance director Eddie J. Soebari said that the long-term
deal with state-owned PT Indonesia Power to supply 5.4 million
tons of coal worth US$113.4 million annually to its power plants
would help the company achieve its income target.


PERTAMINA: Fuel Stocks Meet 22-day Demand
-----------------------------------------
Indonesia's state-owned oil and gas firm PT Pertamina has raised
its oil products stockpile to a "safe level", which means it is
enough to meet a 22-day demand, Dow Jones reports.

According to Pertamina media relations officer Mochamad Harun,
they have managed to boost the supply after the government,
which sells oil to the public at below-market prices,
remunerated the costs of fuel subsidies.

With the July 5 presidential elections fast approaching,
Pertamina has to keep the stockpile at a safe level to avoid a
supply shortage, which could spark social unrest and disrupt the
polls.

Pertamina depends on imported oil products since the firm's
refineries are unable to produce enough oil to meet domestic
demand.


PERTAMINA: To Pay Goldman-Sachs US$3.68M in Tanker Deal
-------------------------------------------------------
Once the controversial sale of its two giant tankers is
completed, state-run oil and gas firm PT Pertamina will pay its
financial adviser Goldman Sachs a total of US$3.68 million,
according to Asia Pulse.

Goldman Sachs not only acts as Pertamina's financial advisor,
but was also tasked to look for potential buyers of its two Very
Large Crude Carriers (VLCCs).

It was earlier reported that Pertamina is facing allegations
that it funded a trip by legislators to Hong Kong and South
Korea in order to get their approval on the intended sale.

The two tankers, now being built in South Korea, are to be sold
for a total price of US$184 million.

    nationwide;
(3) Collaborations with outside partners will be strengthened
    and expanded, particularly in relation to servicing mid-

MMC submitted its first weekly report on June 16 to update the
public on the current status of the 26 recalls and four
improvement measures resulting from past recall directives
announced on June 2.

N.B. NO. OF UNITS FOR JAPAN ONLY

Of the 30 cases related to past repair directives, MMC had
submitted a total of 11 recalls and one improvement measure as
of June 18. The company plans to submit a further eight recalls
on June 30.

MMC has also reported it will submit the remaining seven recalls
and three improvement measures by the end of July, completing
the submission of all 30 cases related to repair directives.

ACCIDENTS/FIRES IN JAPAN

As previously reported, MMC extended its investigations to
include product information reports at dealers (information
before April 2001 no longer kept at MMC), information from the
company's customer relations department, product liability
suits, and notes on repairs carried out by dealers. As a result,
the company has confirmed that one accident and two fires
occurred in Japan to vehicles related to the 30 repair
directives.

MMC also reported on June 18 that it was investigating a fire
that occurred in the city of Yokosuka in September 1996. A
report from the company's technical center has since confirmed
that there is a connection between the fire and the recall. This
case is one of the two mentioned above.

The company has also confirmed that nine people were injured
when their vehicle was stationary as a result of defective
springs in the rear tailgate of the 1992 model year Libero.

On June 18, MMC reported that it had found some 20,000 product
information reports at dealers. As of today, the company has now
gathered 56,000 reports from dealers. MMC is currently visiting
dealers to check if there are any more product information
reports other than those already found. The oldest report found
so far is from March 1986.

MMC also went through about 100,000 inquiries dating back to
October 1992 received by the customer relations department
looking for information on accidents or fires related to the 30
repair directive cases.

The company-investigated defects related to 81-product liability
cases stretching back to October 1995.

In addition, MMC checked the notes of repairs carried out by
dealers to look for information on accidents or fires for all
models with related defects that were subject to repair
directives.

PROGRESS OF EXTENDED INVESTIGATION

Based on the point of view of its customers, MMC decided to also
reexamine all documents inside and outside the company that may
contain information on defects relating to any vehicle,
regardless of whether a repair directive had been issued or not.

A 110-member team - made up of employees from the Quality
Management Office, manufacturing, sales, and the new CSR
Promotion Office to be established on June 29 - is now
conducting a probing quality audit and will present its finding
by the end of July.

Although the authorities confiscated the minutes from internal
meetings on quality in January this year, MMC has asked for
copies of the documents to continue its investigation.


MITSUBISHI MOTORS: To Repay JPY75B Loan Ahead of Schedule
---------------------------------------------------------
Prompted by its deteriorating financial condition, crisis-ridden
Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) plans to repay a syndicated
loan worth JPY75 billion ahead of the expiry date, AFX Asia
reports, citing the Nihon Keizai Shimbun.

The carmaker plans to raise more than JPY450 billion via a
private placement of shares and use part of the proceeds to
repay the loan. It then intends to negotiate with the financial
institutions on a new syndicated loan.

A syndicate of 52 financial institutions that was arranged by
Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi extended the loan last September.


UFJ BANK: To Replace 20 Senior Officials
----------------------------------------
UFJ Bank will replace 20 senior officials after the Financial
Services Agency (FSA) found it had falsified, destroyed and
covered up crucial data to embellish its bad loan position, the
Yomiuri Shimbun reported on Thursday.

Among those who will be replaced will be two board members in
charge of planning and loan screening departments who dealt with
the FSA inspection, the report said.

The bank will also eliminate its unique corporate secretariat
system to ensure the complete transition to a new management led
by President Takamune Okihara.

Mr. Okihara said the bank would establish the responsibility of
those involved in the operational irregularities, following a
thorough study of the business improvement orders issued by the
FSA.

ATLAS CONSOLIDATED: Government Writing Off PhP200M Tax Dues
-----------------------------------------------------------
The Bureau of Local Government Finance in Toledo City said it is
willing to write off more than PhP200 million in tax dues from
Atlas Consolidated Mining Corp., BusinessWorld reports, citing
Toledo City mayor Arlene Espinoza-Zambo.

Atlas owns the city some PhP500 million in taxes, an amount
which has accumulated since 1994.  However, Ms. Zambo said it is
willing to reduce the tax dues and would even accept real
properties as payment for the tax obligations as long as it
resumes its operations, which will result to an initial
employment of 2,000 workers.

According to the BusinessWorld report, Mines and Geosciences
Bureau information officer Eddie Llamedo said in a previous
interview that Atlas submitted in 2002 the documentary
requirements to support pending applications for mineral
production-sharing agreements.

Atlas filed six separate applications for permits to conduct
mining operations in: a 252-hectare site in Pinamungahan town in
the west coast; 648 hectares and a separate 485-hectare property
in Toledo City, also in the west; 2,552-hectare site in Toledo
City and Balamban town; 1,756 hectares in Cebu City; and 287
hectares in Minglanilla town in the east coast.

Atlas will dig for silver, gold and copper in the sites of
Toledo City, Balamban and Cebu City while it will look for
silica and basalt in Pinamungahan and Minglanilla, Mr. Llamedo
said.

Atlas Mines is located in Don Andres Soriano in Toledo City,
which became number one in terms of income during the time the
mines were still operational.

Atlas Mines shut down in 1994 due to weak copper prices, huge
debts and massive damage caused by typhoons. Acid mine drainage
further added to the mines' damage in late 1999.

MANILA ELECTRIC: Seeks Exemption From Registration Requirements
---------------------------------------------------------------
Manila Electric Co. (Meralco) will likely ask the Securities and
Exchange Commission for an exemption from the registration
requirements of its planned refund notes issuance, reports
BusinessWorld.  The refund notes will be issued to commercial
and industrial customers.

Section 88 of the Securities Regulations Code states that
securities shall not be sold or offered for sale or distribution
without a registration statement duly filed with and approved by
SEC.

Section 10 of the same law, meanwhile, gives exemptions to the
requirement. Among the transactions exempted from the
registration requirements are the sale of securities by an
issuer to fewer than 20 persons in the Philippines during any
12-month period, and the sale of securities to qualified
institutions such as banks, registered investment houses,
insurance companies, and pension funds.

"That [asking for exemption] would be considered. Certain
registrations will have to be complied with, but if it is
possible to get concessions, why not?" Mr. Mabale said.

However, Mr. Mabale said that Meralco has not focused on the
option as the firm will first have to get the approval of the
Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) for its plan to issue refund
notes.

The refund notes function like zero coupon bonds, or bonds that
could be sold at a price that is lower than their value to big
customers.

"The plan for refund notes is what we will be presenting to the
ERC. But we don't know yet what the ERC will approve. We have
not seriously discussed the matter, what steps to take, who to
talk to, until we are sure that this [refund notes] is the
instrument that we will use [to service commercial and
industrial customers]," Mr. Mabale said.

If Meralco is granted an exemption, the firm is still required
to pay a fee that is one tenth of one percent of the value of
the bonds that will be issued. "If whereas Meralco registers,
the cost will be diminishing," the official said.

The issuance of the refund note is in line with the Supreme
Court's ruling that orders Meralco to refund commercial and
industrial customers in overcharges from February 1994 to April
2003.

PHILIPPINE BANK: To Sell PhP10B in Bad Assets
---------------------------------------------
The Philippine Bank of Communications (PBCom) has announced
plans to engage in special purpose vehicle (SPV) in selling some
PhP10 billion worth of non-performing assets in July, reports
The Manila Times.

According to PBCom president Isidro Alcantara, the bank will
sell nonperforming loans worth PhP5 billion and PhP5 billion of
real and other properties owned or acquired. The bank's
financial advisor, KPMG, is doing the evaluation on its bad
assets.

"We hope to do it before the September deadline of [SPV]," he
said.

The bank expressed optimism that it would return to profit this
year, with a fresh PhP3-billion capital infusion and P7.6
billion in government support.

PBCom, along with United Coconut Planters Bank (UCPB), will be
the first banks to engage in SPV since the law was passed last
year. The SPV will provide both banks and those who acquire
their bad assets incentives such as tax perks and a waiver on
various fees, which they can avail of over a five-year period.

Both commercial banks are set to submit to their applications to
engage in SPV to the central bank's Monetary Board.

PHILIPPINE LONG: S&P Affirms 'BB' Foreign Currency Rating
---------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Rating Services has affirmed its 'BB' foreign
currency credit rating on Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co.
(PLDT). The rating outlook is stable, according to AFX-Asia.

S&P said PLDT's rating remains constrained by weak cash flow
protection measures, its potential exposure to aggressive
pricing by existing and new competitors and uncertainties in
consumer sentiment and market forces.

"Despite steady improvements in PLDT's cash flow protection
measures in the past three years, the ratios remain weak as
indicated by funds from operations (FFO) to total debt of 25
pct, and FFO interest cover of 4 times in 2003." S&P added.

PLDT's capital expenditure requirements are also expected to
remain large due to the continued strong demand growth for
wireless telecommunications large telecommunications services in
the Philippines, S&P credit analyst Sharad Jain said.

PLDT accounts for more than half of the Philippine market
through its wireless subsidiaries Smart Communications Inc. and
Pilipino Telephone Corp. (Piltel). While its fixed line services
covers 62 percent of the market.

"The PLDT group's subscribers have increased by more than 2.5
million in each of the past three years. Growth in the market
and PLDT's subscriber base is expected to continue in the medium
term, albeit at a more moderate pace."

PLDT posted an unaudited net profit of PhP5.24 billion in the
first quarter to March, more than double the year-earlier level
of PhP2.5 billion, on strong gains in the mobile phone segment.
PLDT is expected to maintain an operating margin of about 60 pct
in the medium term, Mr. Jain added.

The rating also factors in the successful completion of the debt
exchange transactions between Smart and Piltel, which "is
expected to result in an increase in the PLDT group's debt
burden by about 10 to 15 billion pesos, or a 5 to 8 percent
increase to its adjusted debt of 190 billion pesos, including
off balance sheet liabilities, at December 31, 2003," according
to Mr. Jain.

TRENDLINE SECURITIES: Allowed To Suspend Debt Payments
------------------------------------------------------
The petition of troubled broker Trendline Securities Corp. and
its sister firm MJM Realty and Investment Corp. for a court-
mandated rehabilitation and suspension of debt payments has been
granted by a Manila trial court, reports Businessworld.

In an order dated June 10, Manila Judge Artemio Tipon said he
found enough "form and substance" in Trendline and MJM's
petition. He also cited both companies' claim they could still
repay their outstanding obligations once rehabilitated.

The order allowed the companies to stop paying roughly PhP81
million in bank debts pending the court's approval of their
proposed rehabilitation plan. It also set the initial hearing of
the rehabilitation proposal on July 9, and appointed Manuel D.
Yngson Jr. as receiver.

The brokerage firm and its sister company filed their petition
on June 3 to prevent creditors Metropolitan Bank and Trust Co.
and ChinaBank Corp. from foreclosing their assets.

Trendline Securities stated in that petition that the decision
of the Philippine Stock Exchange to suspend its operations in
1998 due to the non-payment of clearing fees rendered the
company unable to pay its debts. The brokerage firm, however,
insisted that the failure of Fil-Estate Land, Inc., its major
client, to settle some PhP100 million in clearing obligations is
to be blamed for its inability to pay the PSE fees.

On the other hand, its sister firm told the court that with
creditor Metrobank freezing the income from its four-storey
building in Binondo, Manila, it is having difficulty settling
its debts on time.

"As a consequence of the freezing and suspension, Trendline and
MJM experienced lack of working capital which resulted in the
inability to pay their maturing obligations with the two banks
aggravated by the 1997 financial crisis and prohibitive interest
rates," the petition said.

INFORMATICS HOLDINGS: Auditor Withdraws Statement As CEO Quits
--------------------------------------------------------------
In a statement to the Singapore Exchange, Informatics Holdings
said that auditing firm Ernst & Young has withdrawn its earlier
statement clearing the senior management of the education
services provider of deliberately misstating the firm's
quarterly financial results, Channel News Asia reports.

At the same time, it also announced the resignation of its chief
executive Ong Boon Kheng Wednesday. The statement did not say
the reason for Mr. Ong's resignation. Michael Teng, who was
formerly connected with West Phamaceutical and Scott & English,
will take over the post vacated by Mr. Ong, who will remain as
an adviser of the company.

The Informatics saga began in mid-April when the company, which
provides tertiary education services mainly in Singapore and
Malaysia, revealed that it overstated sales and profit and
understated costs for the nine months ended December 2003.

On April 30, Ernst & Young, previously appointed by Informatics
as its external investigator, presented its findings on the
firm's unaudited results for the said period. In its report, the
audit firm said that it had no reason to suspect that
Informatics' senior management in Singapore intentionally
misstated the quarterly results.

Singapore's Commercial Affairs Department is also carrying out
its own probe on the matter.

THAI PETROCHEMICAL: PTT Makes Sure Decision Is Worthy
-----------------------------------------------------
PTT will have to wait until Thai Petrochemical Industries PCL
(TPI) has settled its cases with the Central Bankruptcy Court
before it pushes through with its plan to buy a stake in the
debt-saddled company, Business Day reports citing PTT president
Prasert Bunsumpun.

According to Mr. Bunsumpun, PTT will not intervene with the
ongoing negotiations between TPI, its creditors and the plan
administrator.

"We have to carefully consider the worthiness of investing in
TPI, including investment risks and TPI's future," Prasert said,
adding that PTT will have to study these aspects in more detail.

Analysts said that even though the debt restructuring scheme is
completed, TPI will still have an outstanding debt of US$1.8
billion and the debt might be included in PTT's balance sheet if
it buys TPI's stake.

TPI became the biggest defaulter after the devaluation of the
Thai baht in 1997, which caused its foreign debts to soar.
After seven years, the government has decided to end the battle
for control of TPI between its founder Prachai Leophairatana and
its creditors.

The Ministry of Finance was asked by the central bankruptcy
court last July to manage and rescue the company, which has
US$2.9 billion of debt.

TPI POLENE: CBC Hearing Moved To September 20
---------------------------------------------
The hearing for TPI Polene Plc's (TPIPL) case in relation to
debt buy-back was postponed until September 20, Business Day
reports, citing Central Bankruptcy Court (CBC) judge Kamon
Thirawetchaponkul.

Mr. Thirawetchaponkul said that TPIPL and its creditors have
agreed to negotiate the debt-restructuring plan and asked the
court for a later date.

According to TPIPL chief executive officer Prachai
Leophairatana, the court ruling favors the restructuring plan,
which would allow TPIPL to buy back debts at a discount of 18
percent on the condition that the creditors write-off all
outstanding interest. Along with the original debt, TPIPL would
get a combined discount of 31 percent on its debts.

Mr. Prachai said in a previous report that TPIPL would make a
profit of THB3.2 billion in the second quarter due to the debt
restructuring.
