HIH INSURANCE: Creditors' Dividend Possible Next Year
-----------------------------------------------------
The liquidator of collapsed insurance giant HIH said Sunday the
firm's creditors might receive a dividend by early 2005, reports
The Australian.

According to HIH liquidator Tony McGrath, the only way HIH can
pay a dividend, given the very complex nature of its
liquidation, is through the implementation of a Scheme of
Arrangement. "That's at quite an advanced stage and our full
expectation is that the scheme will be approved before the end
of this year and that dividends will be paid shortly
thereafter," he said.

He estimated total dividends to creditors at up to 20 in the
dollar.


MITSUBISHI AUSTRALIA: Starwagon Brake Issue Prompts Recall
----------------------------------------------------------
A potential brake problem in its Starwagon line of vehicles has
prompted Mitsubishi Motors Australia to recall some 288 of the
said car models, reveals Asia Intelligence Wire.

In a statement, the company said there was a possibility the
left-hand rear brake pipe could come in contact with the shock
absorber while driving, damaging the brake pipe. "In the worst
case, the brake pipe assembly may leak resulting in the loss of
braking performance," Mitsubishi said.

The recall would affect WA Starwagons built before September
1994, including models WAOM35, WAOH35 and WAOP95, the company
said.

Mitsubishi said it was notifying the owners of the affected
vehicles by mail, asking them to have their vehicles inspected
by an authorized Mitsubishi dealer. A replacement brake pipe
would be fitted for free once deemed necessary.


PAN PHARMACEUTICALS: Founder Ordered To Appear In Court
-------------------------------------------------------
For the second time, the founder of PAN Pharmaceuticals, along
with the company auditor, have been ordered to appear in court
this week to give evidence about the collapse of the Sydney-
based pharmaceutical company in April last year, reported The
Australian on Saturday.

PAN founder Jim Selim and his auditor and accountant Geoff
Hartigan will be deposed by lawyers for liquidator Tony McGrath,
who is seeking to make the former chemist and chief executive
pay for the loss and damage caused to Pan and its creditors over
the recall of 1600 alternative medicines. Total debts owing to
creditors have been estimated at $190 million.

Mr. Hartigan's lawyer, Kerry Eassie, handed over three volumes
of documents to the liquidator yesterday.  Mr. Selim was also
asked to provide records but his lawyer, Stephen Stanton, said
he had none that fitted the description set out in the legal
order.

According to Peter Wilms, Mr Selim's spokesman, Mr. McGrath
sought files related to Mr. Selim's $6 million plan to build a
pharmaceutical company in Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam.


WAREHOUSE GROUP: Australia Exit Could Cause NZ$250mln Loss
----------------------------------------------------------
Should The Warehouse Group decide to pull the plug on its
poorly-performing Australian stores, the discount retailer could
book losses of up to NZ$250 million, reports Dow Jones, citing a
New Zealand Herald report.

According to the Herald report, The Warehouse would most likely
exit Australia through asset sales, knocking between NZ$180
million and NZ$250 million off its balance sheet. The retailer,
however, has said it will reassess the viability of its
Australian stores in 2006

An ABN AMRO report calculated the "worst-case scenario" -
liquidation in Australia - would cost between NZ$400 million and
NZ$500 million, or NZ$1.31 to NZ$1.64 a share.

PERTAMINA: Faces Graft Investigation
------------------------------------
The Jakarta police are now pursuing leads in relation to their
investigation on a questionable auction conducted by PT
Pertamina last year, The Jakarta Post reported over the weekend.

According to the paper, the police have grilled at least three
company officials about the transaction that saw the sale of six
ships instead of five.  The three allegedly arranged the auction
of the used ships in July 2003.

Under the law, any auction involving assets of state enterprises
should be authorized by the Directorate General for State
Auctions, a unit at the Ministry of Finance.   According to
police Spokesman Sr. Comr. Prasetyo, the ministry had permitted
the auction of only five ships.

"Besides Pertamina officials, we have also questioned the winner
of the auction and an official from the Ministry of Finance,"
Sr. Comr. Prasetyo said on Friday.

Investigators did not divulge the amount the government may have
lost from the alleged graft.


PRUDENTIAL LIFE: High Court Junks Second Bankruptcy Petition
------------------------------------------------------------
The Supreme Court of Indonesia shot down a petition seeking to
declare PT Prudential Life bankrupt, The Jakarta Post reported
over the weekend.

The case was filed before the same district court that declared
the company bankrupt in May.  Filed by the widow and heirs of Ng
Sek Ngie, the Supreme Court dismissed the case for lack of
merit.

Before Mr. Ng's death in January 2003, he had taken an insurance
policy with Prudential that guaranteed indemnity of IDR350
million (US$38,888) upon his death and monthly benefits
thereafter.  Mrs. Ng, along with sons Davin and Dick Sigmund,
told the Central Jakarta District Court on Tuesday that the
company had failed to honor the monthly payments that have now
amounted IDR16,125,003.  She said the company stopped paying the
monthly allotment in October 2003.

In elevating the case to the Supreme Court, Prudential vice
president for corporate marketing and communication, Nini
Sumohandoyo, defended the company's decision, citing "proven
deceit" on the part of Mr. Ng.

"From our investigation, the insured, Ng Sek Ngie, turned out to
have given false statements about his health when signing the
policy.  As stated in the policy itself, any false statements
will lead to termination of the agreement," Ms. Nini told The
Jakarta Post.

"We found out that he had had a serious illness and had been
receiving medical treatment and was hospitalized before signing
the policy.  Had we known that, we wouldn't have issued the
policy," she added.

She said it is not true that the company failed to honor the
policy.  In fact, it immediately paid the IDR350 million death
claim and released the monthly allotment until September last
year, when it discovered the fraud.

Oscar Sagita, the lawyer of Mrs. Ng, believes the policy remains
valid and demandable.  He also blames the company for not
investigating thoroughly Mr. Ng's medical history.

"Prudential paid the insurance money and started paying the
benefits in June 2003, as they said they had to investigate the
claim first.  In March 2003, Prudential signed a statement
saying they would pay the insurance and the benefits, and no
cancellation of that agreement has been made until now," he
said, in an interview with The Post.

The Supreme Court sided with Prudential on Thursday and reversed
the decision of the district court to accept the lawsuit.


SEMEN GRESIK: Cement Sales Rise 20%
-----------------------------------
Massive government projects have brought about a 20-percent
boost in PT Semen Gresik's sales in the first half of this year,
The Jakarta Post reports.

According Gresik's corporate secretary Soebagyo, cement sales
swelled to 3.5 million tons from the previous 2.9 million tons.
This figure, however, does not include transactions of units PT
Semen Padang and PT Semen Tonasa. Gresik also saw its local
market share rise from 21 percent last year to 23 percent.

Semen Gresik, Indonesia's largest cement maker, will exclusively
distribute 300,000 tons of cement priced at IDR400,000 per ton
over the next four years for the IDR2.83 trillion (US$350
million) Suramadu project. The said project involves
construction of Indonesia's longest 5.4-kilometer bridge
connecting Java with Madura island.

Gresik had likewise sealed a deal to supply cement for the
development of Juanda International Airport and the construction
of Surabaya outer ring road.

MITSUBISHI FUSO: Admits Including False Info In Defect Report
-------------------------------------------------------------
Scandal-plagued Mitsubishi Fuso Truck & Bus Corp has confessed
Friday that the progress report on vehicle recalls it announced
Thursday included false data on the seriousness of a truck
defect, relates Kyodo News.

According to Mitsubishi Fuso, its Thursday report said cracks of
only 10 and 11 centimeters were found on clutch housings in
three of its large trucks. The company, however, admitted that
the concerned housings were actually fractured and made two of
the three trucks inoperable.


MITSUBISHI MOTORS: Okazaki Plant Staff May Be Hired by Toyota
-------------------------------------------------------------
The skilled assembly workers of Mitsubishi Motors Corp.'s soon-
to-close factory in Okazaki, Aichi Prefecture, may find
themselves working at Toyota Motor Corp.'s plant in the
prefecture, reported The Japan Times on Friday, quoting Toyota
officials.

According to a Toyota spokesman, they "have begun considering
(accepting them) informally by taking into account the impact on
the regional economy" of a planned shutdown of MMC's Okazaki
assembly plant.

As part of its restructuring efforts, MMC said in May that it is
planning to shut down the Okazaki factory by the end of 2005.
The company also said that the automaker plans to transfer by
next year's end 1,260 of the 1,600 Okazaki workers to another
factory in Kurashiki, Okayama Prefecture.

HYNIX SEMICONDUCTOR: Creditors To Debate $870mln debt deal
----------------------------------------------------------
The creditors of South Korean chip maker Hynix Semiconductor
Inc. are set to discuss today the sale of over $870 million of
Hynix's debt to the chip maker at discount, reports Reuters,
citing Hynix's main creditor, Korea Exchange Bank (KEB).

In a statement, KEB said creditors will discuss today a plan
that would allow Hynix to buy out its debt using some of the
proceeds from the planned sale of its non-core chip unit to a
Citigroup Inc. (C.N) fund for KRW954.3 billion (US$829.8
million), as agreed earlier.

According to a KEB official, Hynix could pay down its US$3
billion debt by more than KRW1 trillion once creditors give the
plan their approval. "The deal size depends on how much debt
each creditor will put up for sale, but we expect over one
trillion won (in book value)," he said.

Hynix, the world's third-largest memory chip maker, is 81-
percent owned by creditors, following several multi-billion-
dollar bailouts. In June, the creditors accepted a bid by
Citigroup Venture Capital to buy Hynix's specialized chip
division and are set to provide part of the financing.


JINRO LIMITED: Eyed By Wire Company
-----------------------------------
Taihan Electric Wire Co. is planning to participate in the
bidding for Jinro Ltd, South Korea's largest spirits distiller,
reports The Korea Herald.

Taihan, a leading producer of cables and wires, is already
Jinro's second-largest shareholder after buying KRW350 billion
of Jinro bonds last year. It is also the spirits maker's largest
secured creditor, holding more than 70 percent of the company's
debt.

Taihan Electric Wire is the flagship affiliate of Taihan
Electric Wire Group, Korea's 29th-largest conglomerate with
KRW3.1 trillion in assets.

Jinro Ltd is currently under court receivership.


SSANGYONG MOTOR: Report Says Automaker May Accept SAIC Bid
----------------------------------------------------------
The Chosun daily reported Friday that China's Shanghai
Automotive Industry Corp (SAIC) has already been selected as the
preferred bidder to acquire bankrupt South Korean automaker
Ssangyong Motor Co.

Citing an unidentified banking official, the Chosun report said
the selection of SAIC as the preferred bidder would be formally
announced by the firm's creditors this week. The report also
revealed that SAIC's bid was lower than that previously proposed
by China National Bluestar Corp.

SAIC and another unidentified consortium were selected by
Chohung Bank and other key creditors as the top two candidates
to take over Ssangyong Motor.

MALAYSIAN INDUSTRIAL: BMSB To Grant Listing Of 35,000 Shares

Berhad's additional 35,000 new ordinary shares of RM1.00 each

NAIM INDAH: Sees Return To Profit This Year
-------------------------------------------
Due to good earnings from its core timber concessions and
property development business, Naim Indah Corp. Berhad (NICORP)
expects to return to profitability this financial year,
according to Bernama.

"Our timber concession in Kelantan would be a major contributor
to the company's profit this year," the company's financial
controller, Larry Liang said, quoted by Bernama. Timber price
has gone up by 10 percent from last year.

Under the proposed restructuring scheme, Mr. Liang said NICORP
shareholders had approved the share capital reduction, which
involved canceling RM0.80 of the par value of each RM1 share
when they surrendered control of acquired Kewangan Bersatu Bhd
(KBB) to Bank Negara Malaysia via a Ministerial Order (1999).

The company surrendered KBB to the central bank due to financial
problems. Following this, Mr. Liang said the company was left
without a core business.

It then ventured into the timber, property investment and
development sector. The cancellation of the share value of KKB
would give the company the opportunity to reduce the accumulated
loss position of the group from RM482 million to RM22.6 million.
The company expects the restructured scheme plan to be completed
within six months.

"With this, the group can achieve an accumulated profit position
within a shorter period of time as compared to the position if
the proposed reconstruction scheme was not carried out, " Mr.
Liang said, adding that this exercise would also present a
fairer view of the financial statement for the year ending Dec
31, 2004.

For the first quarter ended March 31, 2004, the company posted a
RM1.2 million in pre-tax profit, compared to a net loss of RM1.5
million and RM2.2 million in 2003 and 2002 respectively.

end-2003.  The pre-need firm's trust fund assets, managed by
trustee banks, had not grown sufficiently to match its total
actuarial reserve liabilities (ARL), or its net liability to
plan holders worth PHP25.6 billion, the paper said, citing the
Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

According to SEC Chairperson Lilia Bautista, the agency is
prepared to help CAP if it fails to find a willing investor.
The Commission will meet with CAP officials to find out the
steps it is taking to ensure long-term liquidity.

Stepping into the picture, according Ms. Bautista, could mean
helping CAP look for investors, facilitating its merger with
another company, asking its stockholders to put in fresh money,
or the company to sell its assets.

CAP is projecting a negative cash flow this year.  To address
this problem, management is planning to implement an eight-year
program to generate equity and liquidity to meet its
obligations.  The program called for quasi-reorganization,
capital-build up, the sale of assets and cost reduction
programs.  The program will also include trust fund assets
build-up, liability management, real estate development projects
through joint venture, loan programs, and special surrender
programs for matured plans.  If implemented, the program will
allow it to continue operations, CAP said.

To cover for future educational pre-need requirements, CAP is
planning to sell at least PHP3.4 billion worth of bonds backed
up by the cash flow from the Metro Rail Transit (MRT) project
this year.  The MRT bonds worth a total of PHP10 billion are
marketable.  With these financial plans, Ms. Bautista is
optimistic that CAP will have no shortfall in cash or liquidity.

CAP, in its latest financial report, recorded a PHP2.8 billion
loss in 2003, up from only PHP403.3 million in 2002.


NEGROS NAVIGATION: Creditor Says 10-Yr. Rehab Plan "Too Long"
-------------------------------------------------------------
Negros Navigation Co.'s (Nenaco) supplier of heavy equipment
spare parts finds the shipping firm's rehabilitation plan not
workable, according to the Manila Times.

In a two-page petition submitted to the Manila Regional Trial
Court, Tim Builders Inc. said it does not object to Nenaco's
plan to undergo debt-restructuring for it would be for the
welfare of the creditors, but the 10-year implementation period
of the plan is too long, considering that the rehabilitation
plan itself does not appear to be workable, feasible and viable.

"With the other factors in attendance, such as the abrupt
increase in the price of oil and gasoline products, the
worsening economic conditions of the country and the low turnout
of tourism, it would seem that the rehab plan is not workable,
and attaining the desired objectives in the said rehabilitation
plan is illusory," the company said, quoted by the Manila Times.

Nenaco proposed in its rehabilitation plan that it would
restructure its total debt in 10 years, with a one-year grace
period for repayment on interest and a two to three-year grace
period for the principal loan. The plan also includes an option
for debt-to-equity conversion.

Nenaco's total outstanding obligations are estimated at PhP2.4
billion, out of this amount, PhP2.9 million is owed to Tim
Builders for unpaid deliveries of heavy equipment.

PHILIPPINE LONG: Increases Broadband Subscriber Base
----------------------------------------------------
In a press release submitted to the Philippine Stock Exchange,
Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co. (PLDT) has started to
initiate aggressive moves to increase its broadband subscriber
base and further extend its lead over other broadband providers.

PLDT myDSL already has a dominant market share with over 30,000
subscribers, more subscribers than all other telcos combined.
The engine of PLDT's myDSL initial growth came from existing
nationwide infrastructure that the company leveraged and
maximized to roll out its broadband service at least cost.

"While other telcos are still thinking of spending billions of
pesos to roll out a broadband infrastructure, PLDT's was already
in place," said Butch Jimenez, Head of the Retail Business
Group. "It is now our intention to further enhance our network
and generate various applications to heighten the broadband
experience of our subscribers."

PLDT recently doubled the broadband speeds it offered to its
residential subscribers, my DSL now offers speeds of 512 kbps
and 768 kbps.  PLDT has also developed its own online gaming
website, PLDT PLAY that will allow its subscribers to play
network-based games without having to go to an internet cafe'.

PLDT has also tied up with Level-Up, holders of the Philippines
rights to the number one online game in the world, Ragnarok.
PLDT myDSL subscribers can now easily log on to www.pldtplay.com
and play or purchase Ragnarok load through the website.  Fees
will be conveniently charged to the subscribers' phone bill.

"The challenge for PLDT is to combine its broadband
infrastructure with relevant content, therefore creating an
enriching experience for the subscriber," said Mr. Jimenez.

He added that the company intends to build on its partnership
with msn.com (Microsoft Network) one of the most popular sites
in the Philippines with over 500,000 unique Filipino subscribers
through its Hotmail email service.  A special "youth lifestyle"
website designed to enhance the broadband experience is also
under construction.

"We continue to eye data as one of the major growth drivers for
the landline business," added Mr. Jimenez.

INFORMATICS HOLDINGS: Shares Down 6% Upon Trade Resumption
----------------------------------------------------------
After a three-session suspension, Informatics Holdings resumed
trading Monday with a 3-cent or 6 percent dip in its shares at
SGD0.47 (USD1=S$1.6990), Dow Jones reports.

The ailing education provider requested a trading halt while it
persuaded its creditors, DBS Bank Ltd. and ABN Amro, to extend
the SGD16.2 million credit loan due on July 15. Late Friday, the
banks granted a three-month extension, which eased the firm's
woes and dismissed doubts of the firm's ability to stay solvent.

The loan extension was approved on the condition that
Informatics take a mortgage on a Singapore property in favor of
the two banks, pay the banks proceeds from an upcoming Malaysian
property sale, and undertake its proposed rights issue.

Earlier, tycoons Oei Hong Leong and Vincent Tan backed the
company's proposal for a one-for-four rights issue worth SGD19.6
million. However, the proceeds of the issuance won't be
available for another three months.

Aside from the rights issue, Informatics had announced the
proposed sale of noncore assets worth SGD15 million over the
next 15 to 18 months.

Informatics is currently being probed for misstating its
quarterly financial report ended December 2003.


INFORMATICS HOLDINGS: Shareholders Lash Out at Directors
--------------------------------------------------------
The July 9 shareholders' meeting of scandal-hit Informatics
Holdings Ltd. (I03.SG) turned into a fiery exchange between
minority shareholders and board members.

According to a Dow Jones report, frustrated shareholders accused
the directors of destroying shareholder value, with one
infuriated investor suggesting the directors forgo their fees
this year.

In response, director Frank Young defended the board saying that
they are the "good guys" and have always acted for the best
interests of the company.

The board attributed the issues to "staff shortage", but
reassured that the problem is now over. Since the Commercial
Affairs Department is currently probing the firm, they declined
to comment on who is to blame.

The shareholders and directors were to convene for the first
time since April supposedly to approve a dissolved share
placement to Oei Hong Leong. Instead, it turned out to be an
evaluation of the directors' and management's performance.

The proposed SGD19.6 million one-for-four rights issue inked by
tycoons Oei Hong Leong and Vincent Tan appears to be favored by
majority of the shareholders. Also discussed during the meeting
was the intended sale of noncore assets within 18 months.

six-month period of the year 2004 was THB3,480 million compared

ready-mixed concrete, which was in line with the economic
expansion in the country.

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-AP constitutes an offer or
solicitation to buy or sell any security of any kind.  It is
likely that some entity affiliated with a TCR editor holds some
position in the issuers' public debt and equity securities about
which we report.
