BRAMBLES INDUSTRIES: Releases Second Half Performance
-----------------------------------------------------
Brambles Industries Limited reported on Tuesday a stronger
second half performance resulting in profit before tax, goodwill
amortization and significant items for the year ended 30 June
2004 of A$757 million, 2 percent below the previous year, but up
7 percent in constant currency. Profit after tax before goodwill
amortization and significant items was 2 percent lower at A$520
million, but grew 8 percent in constant currency.

Comparable operating profit in the second half of the year
increased by A$116 million to A$527 million compared with the
first half of A$411 million, due to strong improvements in CHEP
(across all regions)
Cleanaway.

A summary of the key financial results for the year is:

- Profit before tax, goodwill amortisation and significant items
was 2 percentlower at A$757 million, but grew in constant
currency by 7 percent;

- The impact of currency translation adversely affected profit
before tax, goodwill amortization and significant items by A$57
million;

- Profit after tax before goodwill amortization and significant
items at A$520 million was 2 percent lower, but grew 8 percent
in constant currency;

- Profit after tax, goodwill amortization and significant items
(after minority interests) was 5 percent lower at A$314 million,
but in constant currency grew by 6 percent;

- Free cash flow was A$619 million, an increase of A$412 million
over the previous year;

- Capital expenditure was A$264 million lower than the previous
year at A$980 million;

- Earnings per share before goodwill amortization and
significant items were 2 percent lower at 30.7 cents, but grew
in constant currency by 8 percent; and

- Earnings per share after goodwill amortisation and significant
items at 18.6 cents was 5 percent below the previous year, but
grew in constant currency by 6 percent.

Commenting on the results, Brambles Chief Executive Officer,
David Turner, said: "We made solid progress for the year. The
increase in second half comparable operating profit of A$116
million over the first half was an excellent outcome.  In
addition, cash flow was strong and for the full year Brambles
generated free cash flow of A$619 million, a surplus of A$280
million after dividends.

The improvement in free cash flow of A$412 million over the
previous year reflects our disciplined approach to capital
expenditure and tighter management of working capital."

This year, CHEP delivered significant profit improvement in each
of its key regions, the costs associated with the CHEP Europe
restructuring have been completed, and the profitability in all
regions grew strongly in the second half of the year led by CHEP
USA.

"We are targeting continued generation of free cash flow as the
concentration on value management continues across Brambles. The
business is performing well in the early part of the current
financial year and this, together with our focus on further
operational improvements, is expected to form the basis for good
progress in 2005."

COLES MYER: Chairman Says Mark Leibler Won't Seek Re-election
-------------------------------------------------------------
Coles Myer Chairman, Rick Allert announced in a disclosure to
the Australian Stock Exchange that Mark Leibler would not offer
himself for re-election as a director at the company's Annual
General Meeting in November.

"Mark has advised me he has reached this decision having
accepted some significant role which would make it difficult for
him to devote sufficient time to Coles Myer in the future.

"As a director since 1995, Mark has made an outstanding
contribution to the company, particularly in the areas of audit,
corporate governance and legal issues," Mr. Allert said.

Mr. Leibler said that it was with much satisfaction that he
would take his leave from the CML Board at a time when the
company was progressing from strength to strength and well on
the way to achieving its strategic milestones.

COLES MYER: Launches Restructure of Supermarket Unit
----------------------------------------------------
Coles Myer Ltd. (CML.AU) announced on Monday that it is
restructuring its key supermarkets business, Dow Jones reports.

The proposed revamp was announced internally by Stephen Cain,
Coles Myer head for food, liquor, petrol and convenience store
operations.

The proposal calls for the retention of Coles and Bi-Lo, Coles
Myer's two supermarket brands. However, Coles Myer spokesman
Scott Whiffin said the company will be merging the internal
structures behind the two brands with one new leadership team,
which includes Gerry Masters, to become managing director of
supermarkets, and Peter Merritt, managing director of house
brands. Coles Myer's liquor group, meanwhile, will have Peter
Scott as managing director, while Joe Barberis will be named
managing director of Coles Express.

According to Mr. Whiffin, the restructure is aimed at
eliminating duplication between Coles and Bi-Lo, with resources
freed up to be reinvested into fresh foods, house brands and
"business transformation."

The new leadership team will be effective Sept. 6.

EPIC ENERGY: Alinta Consortium Named Preferred Bidder For DBNGP
---------------------------------------------------------------
In a press release on its website, Alinta Limited said that the
Receivers and Managers of the Dampier to Bunbury Natural Gas
Pipeline (DBNGP), Martin Madden and Brian McMaster of
KordaMentha, announced yesterday that a consortium comprising
Diversified Utility & Energy Trusts (DUET), Alinta Limited and
Alcoa of Australia Limited had been named as the preferred
bidder for the purchase of 100% of the DBNGP and associated
assets.

The Receiver has advised the Consortium that three bids were
received that were sufficient to repay bank debt, however the
Consortium's selection as preferred bidder was based on the
greater certainty of its offer. The Consortium's bidding price
is approximately A$1.86 billion excluding transaction costs and
proposed capital expenditure).

The Consortium's offer is subject to limited conditions
including the finalization of shipping arrangements and
completion of further due diligence, expected to take
approximately three weeks. Further details regarding the terms
of the DBNGP sale will be announced at that time. In the
meantime, the Consortium expects to enter into sale and purchase
agreements with the Receiver this week.

Mr Peter Barry, the CEO of DUET, said the selection as preferred
bidder reflected the strength of the Consortium's proposal to
recommercialize the Dampier to Bunbury pipeline.

"Under the Consortium's offer, certainty is restored to the
DBNGP business through long term contracts with the major
shippers on the pipeline," Mr Barry said.

"The returns generated by the DBNGP business will be underpinned
by these long term contracts and are expected to provide
predictable cashflows to the Consortium partners from the
completion of the transaction.

"At the same time, the shipping contracts will facilitate the
timely expansion of the pipeline to meet growth in Western
Australia's energy needs.

"We look forward to continuing to work with the Receiver to
facilitate a smooth and timely sale of the DBNGP."

Alinta Network Services will be the operator of the pipeline,
however key commercial operations will be conducted within the
asset vehicle to ensure no conflicts of interest exist. This is
in keeping with undertakings agreed in principle with the
Australian Competition &
Consumer Commission and announced earlier this week.

The Consortium's equity stakes in the DBNGP will be as follows:
Alinta (20%), Alcoa (20%) and DUET (60%). Alcoa's participation
is subject to FIRB approval.

Mr Barry said that DUET's acquisition of the 60% interest in the
pipeline delivers to DUET investors a fourth asset with a strong
competitive position offering predictable cashflows.

"The DBNGP acquisition will further diversify DUET's portfolio
of regulated energy utility businesses, by adding a strategic
gas transmission asset with long term shipping contracts," Mr
Barry said.

"DUET's investment in the pipeline is also expected to enhance
DUET's yield from year one and the payment of stable and
predictable distributions to DUET investors from completion of
the transaction."

Details regarding DUET's proposed funding arrangements, which
will include an underwritten capital raising of around A$300
million, will be made available to investors following the
completion of the Consortium's due diligence process.

Alinta and Alcoa will fund their portions of the transaction
with internal cash reserves.

The Consortium has obtained credit approved debt funding for the
acquisition from Citibank and Barclays.

Epic Energy Inc. owns the DBNGP, which was placed in
receivership over a $1.85-billion debt in late April.

REYNOLDS WINES: Deputy Chair's Assets to Remain Frozen
------------------------------------------------------
The NSW Supreme Court has issued a ruling that the assets of
Reynolds Wines Limited deputy chairman Peter Poolman and his
wife will remain frozen, reports The Australian.

The company's liquidator, Greg Hall of PricewaterhouseCoopers,
has alleged that Mr. Poolman and former Reynolds chairman
Malcolm Irving traded while the company was already insolvent.
It has also been alleged that the deputy chairman placed assets
in his wife's name to keep them out of the liquidator's hands.

On Monday, Mr. Hall told the court that he is of the belief that
nine months before administrators were appointed in August 2003,
Reynolds was already insolvent from October 2002. He said that
according to his estimates, the company was already in the red
by $28.8 million in May 2003.

The failure of the vineyard to resolve an $18 million tax
liability dispute with the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) led
to its voluntary administration.

Lawyers for Mr Poolman told the court on Monday they had
appealed the ATO decision with the Administrative Appeals
Tribunal (AAT). They claim the company would not have been
placed into administration if the ATO decision had been correct.
However, the lawyers failed to stay the insolvent trading case
until after the AAT resolves the ATO issue.

Still, they managed to convince Justice Patricia Bergin to let
Mr. Poolman to invest his $690,000 share of the proceeds of the
$4.35 million sale of his Orange grazing property in the central
west of NSW to help retain its value.

However, the money remains frozen until October 1. His wife's
assets, including proceeds of the rural property sale and a
kitchen manufacturing business, have also been frozen.

Justice Bergin will resume hear arguments on the case on
September 30.

SONS OF GWALIA: Approached By Prospective Gold Asset Buyers
-----------------------------------------------------------
Sons of Gwalia chief executive John Leevers said Monday that in
recent months, the troubled mining firm has been approached by
several local and offshore parties interested in acquiring its
gold business, Dow Jones reveals.

"We're aware that there are people interested, but there have
been no discussions yet," he said in an interview.

Sons of Gwalia, Australia's second-biggest gold producer and the
world's biggest producer of tantalum, announced early Monday
that it has appointed administrators to run the company after
identifying a "serious deterioration" in the status of its gold
reserves. The company's gold hedging counterparties - banks and
financial institutions - then refused to accept a standstill
agreement on debts.

The administrators will work with directors to develop a plan
focused on selling its gold business and recapitalizing its
tantalum business, the company said in a statement.

Creditors will decide the future of the company at meetings to
be held within a month.

ASIA PULP: Japan May Boycott Products
-------------------------------------
Allegations that Indonesia-based Asia Pulp and Paper Co. (APP)
uses illegally felled timber for its raw material may drive away
Japanese importers in September, reports The Jakarta Post.

According to Ministry of Forestry spokesman Transtoto
Handadhari, several giant Japanese firms such as Ricoh Co., are
planning to boycott APP products after campaigns by non-
governmental organizations against APP products in Japan.

"Due to the problem, the ministry has decided to help APP as it
may jeopardize the country's overall pulp and paper export to
Japan. We are afraid that Japanese buyers may think that our
pulp and paper products are mostly derived from illicit
sources," said Mr. Transtoto.

Mr. Transtoto said the ministry was suspicious that the
rejection was mainly a result of unfair trade practices
conducted by Japanese companies with affiliates in Asia that
wanted to takeover the huge market of APP, whose total exports
to Japan may be worth about US$500 million per year, with 20
percent of the exports destined for Ricoh.

APP is controlled by the Sinar Mas Group, founded by tycoon Eka
Tjipta Widjaja. The company is currently trying to restructure
its defaulted debts totaling US$13.9 billion.

BANK PERMATA: Prospective Bidders Named
---------------------------------------
The Indonesian government said on Monday that 10 prospective
bidders have beaten the Friday deadline in submitting all the
requirements to make an initial offer for a 51-percent stake in
PT Bank Permata (BNLI.JK), reports Dow Jones.

The 10 prospective bidders are Malayan Banking Bhd. (1155.KU),
PT Bank Rakyat Indonesia (BBRI.JK) and United Overseas Bank Ltd.
(U11.SG) of Singapore, and consortiums led by Barclays Bank,
Bumiputera Commerce Bank, Bank Mandiri (BMRI.JK), Bank Panin,
Standard Chartered Bank-Astra International (ASII.JK),
Swissfirst (SCM) and Wachovia (WB).

Without providing details of the members of the consortiums, the
government said that by the end of August, it will shortlist
five bidders, who will then do due diligence on Bank Permata
before submitting their final bid in early October.

The government, which created Bank Permata after the 1997-1998
Asian financial crisis by merging the failed Bank Bali with four
other institutions, is selling its stake in Permata to plug the
budget deficit.

PERTAMINA: ExxonMobil Seeking Talks Regarding Cepu Block
--------------------------------------------------------
Exxon Mobil Corp. (XOM.N: Quote, Profile, Research) is
attempting to arrange discussions with state oil and gas company
PT Pertamina its decision not to extend the US-based firm's
contract to jointly operate the Cepu oil block, Reuters reports.

In an e-mailed statement, Exxon Mobil Indonesia spokeswoman Deva
Rachman confirmed that the firm has received a letter from
Pertamina regarding the status of Exxon Mobil and Pertamina's
negotiations concerning the Cepu Contract Area.

"We are currently evaluating statements made in the letter and
plan to discuss these with Pertamina and the Indonesian
government when meetings can be scheduled," she added.

Exxon Mobil, which has various oil and gas agreements in
Indonesia, and Pertamina have been locked in talks since 2001
over the Cepu block on Java island, which government officials
say could produce the equivalent of 10 percent of Indonesia's
current output, or around 100,000 barrels a day.

The Cepu block is under a technical assistance contract, which
is set to expire in 2010, between the two firms.

MITSUBISHI FUSO: Stays Profitable Despite Cover-Up Scandals
-----------------------------------------------------------
For the current fiscal year, Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus
Corporation booked hefty profits despite its well-publicized
involvement in a series of defect cover-up issues, reports
Refrigerated Transporter.

Although it expects a steep profit decline in Japan, the
troubled truck maker's group net revenue surged to JPY17.5
billion (US$161 million) for the current financial year from
last year's JPY1.5 billion. Sales rose 23 percent to JPY 894.0
billion (US$8 billion) from the previous JPY724.0 billion.

Along with former parent Mitsubishi Motors Corporation,
Mitsubishi Fuso has conducted recalls of faulty vehicles early
this year, as ex-officials were arrested for alleged concealment
of defects in two fatal accidents in 2002.

Mitsubishi Fuso, which is 65-percent owned by German automaker
DaimlerChrysler AG, declined to give an earnings outlook due to
problems in assessing damage from recalls.

SOJITZ CORPORATION: Develops Industrial Waste Tracking System
-------------------------------------------------------------
In a press release dated August 31, 2004, Sojitz Corporation
announced that it has developed an industrial waste
tracking/management system that utilizes the 'FOMA' third
generation mobile phone with the cooperation of NTT DoCoMo
Kansai Incorporated. Through a linkage between `FOMA' and the
`Venus System', a manifest management system serviced by Sojitz,
the waste tracking/management system will unfailingly track
industrial waste treatment processes, in addition to improving
operation efficiency by computerizing complicated administrative
operations for manifests.

Utilization of mobile phone terminals will allow companies
introducing the system to both reduce workloads and undertake
waste management with a new method without having to purchase
dedicated equipment. Operation of the system will commence in
the Kanto Region with the introduction of the new system by a
leading housing manufacturer.

Sojitz will offer the service based on the ASP (Application
Service Provider) method, focusing mainly on the construction
industry such as housing manufacturers and general contractors
that are strengthening their industrial waste treatment
management systems. Annual sales of 100 million yen are targeted
in three years time.

Conventionally, paper-based manifests have been issued at sites
where delivery and receipt of construction material waste are
made, with the presence of the person in charge from the
business operator being responsible for the discharge of such
waste.

The new system makes use of a high-speed, large capacity
network, which is a feature of `FOMA', exchanging data over the
Internet using i-mode, which data is required to issue a
manifest. First, when picking up industrial waste, the
industrial waste collector takes a photo of the site using a
`FOMA' mobile camera, the collector then connects to
the i-application site dedicated to the `Venus System' to enter
required information such as type of waste and quantity. The
system has a mechanism to automatically send the registered data
to the business operator responsible for discharging the waste.

The person authorized to issue a manifest, to whom a password
has been given in advance, gives approval after confirming the
images and data, and then issues an electronic manifest.

Further, the system uses GPS (Global Positioning System) to
track the transport vehicle in real time. Navigation traces such
as vehicle positioning and route are recorded as electronic data
per manifest, enabling the creation of highly reliable
manifests. Such electronic manifest information is shared over
the Internet with those responsible for the discharge of waste,
waste collection and transportation service providers, and waste
treatment operators. The system enables not only improvements to
the efficiency of clerical work, such as collecting and
verifying manifests, but also eases the carrying out of the
unified management of data concerning waste management.

The `Venus System' is in compliance with JWNET, operated by the
Japan Industrial Waste Technology Center (Chuo-ku, Tokyo), and
provides the benefit of being exempt from the 5-year storage
requirement that exists for paper-based manifests.

Under circumstances where regulations are being strengthened in
order to prevent illegal waste disposal, as can be understood
from the revision of the Waste Disposal Law, companies are
required to undertake more thorough industrial waste management
and information management. In addition, resource recycling and
the environment are receiving increased public attention.
Through provision of the new service, Sojitz will support the
efforts of waste discharging enterprises, and will also aspire
to establish systems to prevent illegal waste disposal.

UFJ HOLDINGS: High Court Clears Way for Merger with MTFG
--------------------------------------------------------
In a move that paves the way for a full takeover of UFJ Holdings
Incorporated by Mitsubishi Tokyo Financial Group (MTFG), the
Supreme Court of Japan has issued a ruling that UFJ can pull out
of the deal to sell its trust unit to Sumitomo Mitsui Financial
Group (SMFG), Reuters says.

The irrevocable verdict will allow UFJ and MTFG to go ahead with
full-fledged negotiations to merge into the world's top-ranked
bank with JPY1.7 trillion (US$15.5 billion) worth of assets.

SMFG, which has offered JPY3.2 trillion (US$29 billion) to
acquire UFJ, expressed disappointment with the ruling, as it had
been attempting to block the UFJ-MTFG alliance.

The decision concluded a month-long legal battle that began when
UFJ announced it was seeking a merger with second-ranked MTFG.

ASIANA AIRLINES: Comes Up With Blacklist With Korean Air
--------------------------------------------------------
South Korea's two major carriers announced on Monday that they
have drawn up blacklists of passengers who have created
disturbances on their flights in the past, reports the JoongAng
Daily.

Korean Air and Asiana Airlines said they intend to bar Korean
and non-Korean passengers who have been noted to be violent,
used vulgar language and drank excessively in past flights.

In creating the blacklists, Korean Air and Asiana categorized
such passengers into one group that flight attendants should
treat with caution, and into another which brands people who
threatened other passengers as "inflight delinquents", who are
to be barred from flights on the two airlines anywhere in the
world.

Currently, the Asiana blacklist has 17 passengers, whose names,
passport numbers, nationalities and security numbers will be
shared by branch offices of the airlines. Korean Air, meanwhile,
has so far picked out 20.

KOOKMIN BANK: CEO Lobbying Irks Regulators
------------------------------------------
The lobbying of Kookmin Bank President Kim Jung-tae with his
deputies to challenge the latest regulatory crackdown on its
accounting irregularities involving KRW550 billion has earned
the ire of regulators, reports The Korea Times.

In a press conference on Monday, Financial Supervisory Service
(FSS) deputy governor Kim Jung-hoe dismissed allegations that
the regulator is targeting the Kookmin CEO as a scapegoat. The
key point, he said, is that the nation's largest bank had
violated accounting rules, which requires sanctions against CEO
Kim and other executives.

He made the remark as foreign investors and shareholders are
allegedly moving to petition Kookmin's case in order to protect
the CEO and help keep him in office even after October.

The deputy governor reconfirmed that Kookmin has clearly
committed a violation of generally accepted accounting standards
during its merger with Kookmin Credit Card in 2003.

The FSS also released details of an internal KB document drawn
up in September 2003 entitled "reports on strategies for
reducing tax burdens in the process of a merger". The document,
the deputy governor said, is key evidence contradicting KB's
claims that bookkeeping based on audits by Samil Accounting
Corp. and consulting by the National Tax Service (NTS) was
false.

Samil has asserted that the accounting for KB's provisions
against possible losses at Kookmin Credit Card could be a
violation of rules according to the document. This is an
indication that the possibility of accounting fraud might have
already been recognized by Kookmin.

The FSS official also said that KB failed to refer the corporate
tax issue to the NTS in detail.

The deputy governor said that sanctions also await former KB
standing auditor Lee Sung-nam, a member of the central bank's
policy-setting Finance and Monetary Committee.

KOOKMIN BANK: FSS Dismisses Foreign Investor Pullout
----------------------------------------------------
The Financial Supervisory Service (FSS) dismissed on Monday
allegations that once it ousts Kookmin Bank CEO Kim Jung-tae,
for the bank's accounting irregularities, foreign investors
would pull out of the Korean stock market, reports The Korea
Times.

According to the regulators, more foreign investments would flow
into Korea once corporate accounting practices become more
transparent.

The FSS made the remarks amidst talk that many foreign
institutional investors have been protesting the regulator's
action.

Kookmin Bank was fined KRW2 billion by the FSS last week for
accounting standard violations in its 2003 financial statements.

COLLEGE ASSURANCE: Loan Application With Veterans Bank Denied
-------------------------------------------------------------
The application by College Assurance Plan (CAP) for a PhP300-
million loan with the Philippine Veterans Bank (PVB) has been
rejected after the financially distressed pre-need giant failed
to present collateral, reports Business World.

According to PVB Assistant Vice President Mike Villareal, CAP
offered its Metro Rail Transit (MRT) bonds, but the Securities
and Exchange Commission (SEC) disapproved this.

The pre-need firm applied for the loan in June after it paid in
May about PhP440 million drawn from a credit line it opened with
the bank two years ago.

The SEC has been keeping a close watch on CAP as it has been
having trouble building up its required trust fund, which is the
money it sets aside to cover future obligations. It is
considered insufficient when it is less than the estimated total
amount the pre-need company must pay in the future.

CAP is negotiating with a prospective foreign investor for a
possible US$100-million capital infusion to help it build up its
trust fund through additional equity infusion.

MUSIC SEMICONDUCTORS: Unveils Annual Stockholders Meeting
---------------------------------------------------------
Further to the earlier announcements made by Music
Semiconductors Corp. (MUSX) to the Philippine Stock Exchange,
the company advises that at the annual meeting of the
Stockholders of the company, the following matters were reported
which may be considered material.

The company reported that its sales are focused to decline in
the second half of 2004, however, cost-cutting measures
initiated in the middle of the year are expected to allow
profits to remain in line with the first half of 2004 and the
same period in 2003.  Based on its current forecast of full year
net sales of PHP217 million and net income of PHP48 million,
earnings per share (EPS) for the full year 2004 is estimated at
50 centavos.  Based on its current profit outlook, it expects to
eliminate its capital deficiency by the end of the first quarter
of 2005.

MUSX management reported that is not ready yet to move forward
with the stock rights offering approved by shareholders at its
annual meeting in December 2003, believing that neither market
conditions nor the company's status are strong enough to ensure
success at this time.

The funds to be raised in the stock rights offering are
earmarked for a new product development.  The company reported
that its business is being impaired by a lack of new products;
no new products have been introduced since 1998.  The plan of
reorganization of its U.S. subsidiary MUSIC Semiconductors Inc.
does not allow for any spending not approved by the creditors
committee, which has indicated its intention to veto any request
for spending on research and development.

At the organizational meeting of the Board of Directors held
immediately after the annual meeting, considering the election
of Mr. Antonio M. Cailao as Director of the Company, the
following resolutions were likewise approved and adopted:

(1) To appoint Mr. Antonio M. Cailao as member of the Audit
Committee and alternate member of the Nomination Committees;

(2) To appoint Mr. Juan B. Custodio as alternate member of the
Audit Committee.

Very truly yours,
Jimmy S. Soo
Chairman

NATIONAL POWER: Government Hopes To Sell Power Grid By Yearend
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Philippine government is hoping the National Power Corp.
(Napocor) electricity transmission grid will be sold to a
private operator by December, Business World reports, citing a
senior government official.

This time, officials said they would negotiate directly with
interested firms, which government rules allow after two
unsuccessful bidding rounds last year.

According to a source close to the deal, a private operator
would be expected to pay around US$500 million for the
transmission grid of National Power Corp. (Napocor) and assume
US$1.5 billion in debt. The government, which is trying to
reduce chronic budget deficits, is also selling dozens of power
plants.

There are at least five groups interested in the Napocor grid,
which is operated by National Transmission Corp. (Transco).

"We will soon start discussions and, by December 2004, we expect
to appoint a concessionaire," Transco President Alan Ortiz said
over the weekend.

Energy Secretary Vincent Perez Jr. said last week that if the
government does not make progress in privatizing its power
assets, Napocor's debts would balloon to PhP600 billion
(US$10.68 billion) this year from PhP523 billion at the end of
2003 if the government does not make progress in privatizing its
power assets.

MDX: Issues Clarification To 2Q 2004 FS
---------------------------------------
As the auditor did not express any opinion on the 2nd quarter
financial statements of MDX Public Company Limited and
consolidated financial statements of MDX Public Company Limited
and its subsidiaries, the company would like to clarify that:

(1) Liabilities shown in MDX's financial statements and MDX and
its subsidiaries' consolidated financial statements are higher
than its assets, together with a high level of deficit.

Thus, MDX's continued operation will depend on the success of
its debt restructuring according to the Rehabilitation Plan.
The financial statements are then prepared, on going concern
basis.

MDX is under implementation of a Rehabilitation Plan. Up to the
present, the implementation process is considered successful as
stipulated in the Plan.

Consequently, MDX's total liabilities should be reduced to
roughly about THB2,066 million and some deficit should be
cleared off. However, the auditor does not allow MDX to write
down the principal and accrued interest expense.

Total liabilities shown in the Q2/04 financial statements of MDX
and MDX's consolidated financial statements are still high.

(2) Financial statements of one associated company incorporated
by equity method in MDX's financial statements were not reviewed
by any other auditor.

The reason for this is that the associated company is a foreign
company not listed in the Stock Exchange of Thailand. Therefore,
it is not obliged to prepare quarterly financial statements as a
listed company.  Furthermore, MDX cannot participate in
management activities due to its limited shareholding.

Due to the above factors, the auditor is, then, unable to
express any opinion on the financial statements and consolidated
financial statements of MDX and its subsidiaries.  However, MDX
has already disclosed all sufficient information on its notes to
financial statements.

Furthermore, the main factors that caused the operating result
of the 2nd quarter of 2004 to differ more than 20 percent from
those in 2003 is that in Q2 of 2003, MDX had a THB192 million
profit from the transfer of land to the Industrial Estate
Authority of Thailand as debt settlement.  On the other hand,
MDX only incurred a THB43 million profit from debt restructuring
in Q2 of 2004 which resulted to a reduction of performance in
Q2/2004 compared to Q2/2003.

Please be informed accordingly
Yours sincerely,
(Songsri Kalyanamitr)
Director of Wittayu Planner Co., Ltd.
On behalf of the Plan Administrator of MDX Pcl.
