Notice is given pursuant to Section 509 of the Corporations Act
2001 that a joint meeting of the members and creditors of
Airline Facilities Pty Limited (In Liquidation) will be held at

AUSTRALIAN GAS: $200Mln Construction Project Begins in October
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Australian Gas Light Company (AGL) announced in a press
release on Friday that it would purchase up to 50 percent of the
Renewable Energy Certificate (REC) output of Western Australia's
largest wind farm to be built at Walkaway near Geraldton in the
Shire of Greenough.

Construction on the 54-turbine, $200 million project is
scheduled to begin next month by owner and project developer
Renewable Power Ventures and is expected to take 15 months to
complete.

The 89.1-megawatt wind farm will generate enough power to supply
approximately 60,000 Western Australian households and will save
the equivalent of 400,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions
annually. The REC output AGL has purchased over the life of the
project is equivalent to taking 48,000 cars off the road
permanently.

The REC output, secured under long term contract, will be added
to AGL's overall REC portfolio, allowing AGL to meet its
commitments under the Federal Government's Mandatory Renewable
Energy Target (MRET) scheme to reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

The project is part of AGL's commitment to environmentally-
friendly initiatives through business activities and by
providing customers with product choices, which source renewable
energy through wind, biomass and landfill projects. These
include two land fill gas extraction sites at Gosnells and
Rockingham in WA.

"AGL's growth strategy includes a strong focus on further
investment in renewable energy projects," AGL Managing Director
Greg Martin said.

"AGL is continuing to examine a range of opportunities to
further grow our renewable energy portfolio which may involve
direct equity participation in projects as an alternative to
contracting output," Mr. Martin concluded.

NEBRU PLAINS: Secured Creditor Benefits From Asset Sale
-------------------------------------------------------
The sale of the main assets of Nebru Plains Pty Ltd. organized
by its receivers raised around $15 million, reports the West
Australian.

The proceeds covered much of major creditor Rabobank's exposure
but left nothing for unsecured creditors other than what they
might retrieve through personal guarantees. The unsecured
creditors include Janet Holmes a Court, Elders and AWB Landmark.  

Mrs. Holmes a Court, who is supposedly owed around $130,000 for
livestock, applied to the Supreme Court last week for Nebru
Plains to be wound up.

Receiver Martin Jones of Ferrier Hodgson said Tuesday the sale
of the Nebru Plains feedlot and farm near Three Springs, its
abattoir at North Dandalup, and around 700 cattle would leave a
deficiency of some $4 million to $5 million.

The Pugh family acquired the 2834-hectare property, including
the 12,000-head feedlot, fodder, standing crops and machinery.
The deal was expected settled last Friday.  A contract for the
sale of the abattoir to WA processor EG Green is due to be
settled next month.

Nebru Plains was hit by disruption in the Japanese market after
the mad cow disease outbreak three years ago, and record cattle
and grain prices.

PAN PHARMACEUTICAL: Mulling Legal Action Against TGA
----------------------------------------------------
Pan Pharmaceutical founder Jim Selim is considering filing suit
against Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA), the Age reports.

The regulator was responsible for the collapse of Pan
Pharmaceuticals, which cost Mr. Selim, a 53 percent shareholder
of the company, a total of $110 million.

A year ago, Mr. Selim considered launching a legal attack
against the regulator, but instead decided to fund Federal Court
examinations later this month by the administrator of a small
Gold Coast company which blames its $3 million collapse on the
TGA's April 2003 recall of 16,000 vitamin and herbal products
made by Pan.

The discontinuance of the examinations could be used against TGA
in favor of Pan.  Evidence gathered could also prove useful to
Mr. Selim in preparing his defense to the damages claim filed
against him in April by Pan liquidator Tony McGrath of
McGrathNicol & Partners.

Mr. Selim floated the prospect of joining the Therapeutics Goods
Administration as a co-defendant last year when Mr. McGrath
first foreshadowed the case, which is based on Mr. Selim's
alleged breach of duty as Pan's chief executive in not ensuring
the company met regulatory health standards.

Mr. McGrath has expressed no interest in suing the TGA on behalf
of Pan's creditors.

Markethaven Pty Ltd., a Queensland company which went into
administration last November, used Pan as contract manufacturer
of more than half the complementary medicines it sold.  Five
months later Markethaven's creditors switched administrator to
the Sydney practice Sheahan Lock Partners.

SONS OF GWALIA: Founders Issue Statement On Collapse
----------------------------------------------------
Sons of Gwalia founding brothers Peter and Chris Lalor have made
their first public statement since the stunning collapse of the
company Sunday, reports the Sydney Morning Herald.

According to the Lalor brothers, they were concerned on the
misleading information on the company's collapse, including
their so-called contribution to the Perth miner's demise.

The brothers' comment came two days after the company's new
chairman, Neil Hamilton, said shareholders would "expect
answers" about Gwalia's previous management, and one day after
Ferrier Hodgson administrators confirmed that the Lalor
brothers' 20-year tenure would play an important part in its
investigation into the collapse.

They said they were as surprised with the "serious
deterioration" of the failed gold and tantalum miner's reserves
as anyone else. They will answer all inquiries pertaining to the
company upon their return to Australia.

The Lalors, who ran the company until April, said they were
"extremely disappointed and distressed at the decision to place
the company into administration" and "agree that a response
needs to be provided as to the deterioration in the gold ore
reserves which has led to the company's predicament".

"Contrary to wildly speculative comments, we have been overseas
on trips that have been scheduled for some time and we have both
been readily contactable," Peter Lalor said in a written
statement. "We have on those trips also represented the company
on occasion".

Peter Lalor, believed to be in the U.S. for a business trip,
said he had retained a "vast majority" of his shareholding while
Chris, who is on a family holiday in Europe, has sold his stock.

According to a final director's interest filed with the stock
exchange, Chris Lalor and associated interests held about
700,000 shares.

"We will readily assist the company and the administrators if
requested and look forward to the administrator's report into
how the company's fortunes deteriorated to this extent," Peter
Lalor said.

BANK PERMATA: Winning Bidder Must Support API, Says BI Governor
---------------------------------------------------------------
Bank Indonesia governor Burhanuddin Abdullah last Wednesday said
that it does not matter to the central bank who wins the tender
for state-owned PT Bank Permata as long as it supports the
implementation of Indonesia's banking architecture (API),
reports the Antara news agency.

Mr. Burhanuddin's comments followed the disclosure Tuesday of
the five short-listed bidders for a 51-percent stake in Permata.

The five were the Commerce, MayBank, Panin, and Standard
Chartered Bank consortiums, PT Astra Internasional and United
Overseas Bank Limited.

According to Mr. Burhanuddin, the central bank will not make an
evaluation on the prospective Permata investors until after the
government announces a preferred bidder, noting that the proper
test scheduled would cover an evaluation like the investor's
business plan and its program, which will be realized in
connection with the API.

PERTAMINA: To Seek New Cepu Block Partner
-----------------------------------------
State-owned oil and gas company PT Pertamina will be seeking a
new partner in exploiting the Cepu block after its current
contract with US-based Exxon Mobil Corp. expires in 2010,
reports Dow Jones, citing Pertamina president director Widya
Purnama.

The announcement comes more than a week after Pertamina decided
not to extend its contract with Exxon Mobil to jointly operate
the Cepu block, located in Central Java.

According to the Pertamina executive on Thursday, the company is
planning to invite big oil firms to operate the Cepu oil field.
He, however, said Exxon Mobil can seek a new Cepu contract if it
agrees to new government-set requirements.

"The requirements, off course, should benefit Pertamina, the
nation and, in the end, the partner," he said.

The Cepu field has proven reserves of 600 million barrels, and
perhaps upward of 1 billion barrels, which could make it the
largest discovery in Indonesia since the 1960s.

PERTAMINA: Names PR Chief to Head HK-based Unit
-----------------------------------------------
Petral, PT Pertamina's Hong Kong-based subsidiary for crude and
oil product trading, has a new chief in the person of Hanung
Budya, the Indonesian state-owned oil and gas company's head of
public relations.

"I signed the appointment letter today," Pertamina president
director Widya Purnama said on Thursday.

According to a report by the Antara news agency, Mr. Hanung will
replace Ari Soemarno, who has been appointed director of
marketing and business for Pertamina.

Mr. Purnama expressed hopes that with Mr. Hanung at the helm,
Petral's performance would show improvement. He, however, said
that he would readily replace Mr. Hanung should he fail to
perform well.

The president director said he wants Petral to be self-
sufficient and able to expand the market wider outside
Pertamina.

-------------------------------------------
In order to boost its capital, Shinsei Bank is planning to

reports The Japan Times.

Shinsei, successor of the Long-Term Credit Bank of Japan, aims
to take control of Showa by buying at least 51 percent of its

its financial standing and creditworthiness, allowing it to
raise funds from the financial market.

The Resona Group, which holds 14.5 percent of Showa, plans to

SOJITZ HOLDINGS: To Announce New Business Plan
----------------------------------------------
Sojitz Holdings Corporation will unveil a new business program
this week, Bloomberg reports.

The decision was made following a report of the firm's plan to
request more than US$3.2 billion in capital injection from
creditors UBS AG and UFJ Holdings Incorporated to cover
reorganization costs.

According to the Nihon Keizai newspaper, Tokyo-based Sojitz will
seek financial assistance from its primary creditors to
replenish funds depleted from a write-off of latent losses and
from winding up unprofitable operations. In July, the firm has
declared it would ask its lenders to cover about JPY250 billion
of the costs.

Sojitz, formerly known as Nissho Iwai-Nichimen Holdings
Corporation, is forecasted to book a hefty JPY400 billion net
loss for the current fiscal year ending March 31.

SOJITZ HOLDINGS: Unit Dissolves NEPCO
-------------------------------------
Sojitz Holdings Corporation (formerly known as Nissho Iwai-
Nichimen Holdings Corporation announced that its wholly owned
unit, Nichimen Corporation (Nichimen, determined to dissolve its
consolidated subsidiary, NEPCO S.A. (NEPCO).

(1) Outline of NEPCO S.A.

(a) Headquarters: Parc d'Activities de Launay 14130 PONT-
L'EVEQUE FRANCE

(b) Representative: Naomitsu Yoshihara

(c) Business: Manufacturing and sales of plastic products

(d) Established: May 1, 1990

(e) Capital: Euro 14,025 thousand

(f) Major shareholders: PLANESA S.A. (Nichimen Corporation 75%,
Nichimen Europe PLC 25%) 57.07%
Nichimen Corporation 31.30%
Nichimen Europe B.V. 3.48%

(2) Reason for dissolution

Aiming at quick realization of business integration effects,
Nichimen and Nissho Iwai Corporation, which are two major
subsidiaries of Sojitz Holdings Corporation, accelerate
"selection and concentration" in their businesses, and implement
business restructuring.

Due to the intensifying competition with import products such as
Chinese products and decreasing demand for CD case, which is its
main product item, NEPCO's business performance has deteriorated
greatly with little expectation of future recovery. As part of
the effort to accelerate withdrawal from unprofitable business,
Nichimen decided to dissolve the company.

(3) Prospects

The Liquidation will be completed by December 2003 and the
liquidation loss is expected to be approximately JPY1.5 billion.
However, there is no change in the Sojitz's earnings forecast
for the fiscal year ending March 31,2004.


UFJ HOLDINGS: Shinsei Bank Eyes Aplus
-------------------------------------
UFJ Holdings Incorporated is currently negotiating to sell its
consumer credit unit Aplus Company to Japan's Shinsei Bank,
Reuters relates.

Although no accord has been reached yet, financial sources
speculated that Shinsei had outbid Britain's HSBC Holdings Plc
to acquire UFJ's 40-percent stake in Aplus.

HSBC and Shinsei have been in competition for the Aplus stake in
a bid to tap into the US$96 billion consumer finance industry.

Aplus, which has an annual turnover of JPY1.72 trillion (US$15.7
billion), expects to reap JPY100 billion from the takeover in
addition to the JPY100 billion financial aid to be provided by
UFJ.

KOOOKMIN BANK: Given A Month To Restate Earnings
------------------------------------------------
Beleaguered Kookmin Bank has been given a month by the Financial
Supervisory Commission to restate its 2003 and 2004 earnings
after the Financial Supervisory Service (FSS) found the bank
avoided taxes by overstating last year's losses, reports
Reuters.

Since Kookmin, South Korea's largest lender, had booked the
expected additional losses in the first half of this year, it
will have to change this year's books as well.

In a filing to the stock exchange, the bank said its pretax loss
for 2003 would widen by US$209 million, while pretax profits for
the first half of this year would rise by the same margin.

Kookmin posted a net loss of KRW753.3 billion last year on a
pretax loss of KRW1.14 trillion. For the first half of 2004, it
had a net profit of KRW307.6 billion on KRW447.4 billion of
pretax profits.

on their long-term purchase programs for their cars, reports The
Korea Herald.

Ssangyong, South Korea's fourth largest carmaker, will cut the

GM Daewoo, on the other hand, said it will offer interest-free
financing on its 36-month purchase plans to those who register
this month. The incentive will be applied to its entire product
lineup, the Lacetti compact and Magnus midsize included. The
carmaker also plans to slash the interest rate on its 60-month
installment plans from the current 10.8 percent to 5 percent.

The domestic sales of Ssangyong, which mainly manufactures sport
utility vehicles such as the Korando and Rodius, also fell 12
percent on-year to 7,302 last month. The same is true with GM
Daewoo, which only sold 7,607 cars domestically in August, an
18-percent drop from a year earlier.

NEGROS NAVIGATION: Receiver Proposes 10-Year Rehab Plan
-------------------------------------------------------
The rehabilitation receiver of Negros Navigation Corporation
(Nenaco) has recommended to the court a 10-year corporate
rehabilitation scheme for the troubled shipping firm, according
to Business World.

The rehabilitation plan presented by receiver Monico V. Jacob is
designed to help Nenaco gain a bigger share of the market.

Mr. Jacob also proposed the terms and conditions for the
restructuring of Nenaco debts, either through conversion of debt
into equity at par value, or through long-term notes, with a
tenor of 10 years inclusive of four years grace period on
principal repayment.

Mr. Jacob also proposed the following conditions:

1. A cash recapture mechanism will be established and will be
monitored by the Rehabilitation Receiver. It is intended to
capture any excess cash, 50 percent of which will go to debt
servicing.

2. Gradual quarterly payments on interest due and scheduled
principal amortization.

3. In the absence of equity investment, new money will be
borrowed through medium-term notes with a tenor of three years
and six months, inclusive of grace periods.

Nenaco filed a petition for rehabilitation at the Manila court
last March 29 after its cash flows proved deficient to cover
about PhP2.5 billion in liabilities.

PHILIPPINE BANK: Evaluating NPA Bids
------------------------------------
Medium-size lender Philippine Bank of Communications (PBCom) is
reviewing three bids for the sale of its non-performing assets
(NPA) worth PhP12.5 billion, Yehey Finance reports.

It said only three bids were submitted during the August 24
public auction while eight groups conducted due diligence.

After incurring a net loss of PhP200.72 million during the first
quarter, the bank swung to profit with PhP9.7 million in the
succeeding quarter due to higher interest income on investments.

Loss-making PBCom secured early this year a Php7.64 billion
financial assistance deal from state-run Philippine Deposit
Insurance Corporation (PDIC).

----------------------------------------------------------------
Further to our announcements made on 29 March 2004 and 13 April
2004, the Board of Directors of Panpac Media Group Limited
announced on the Singapore Stock Exchange that the Company has
entered into a letter agreement with Mr. Yin Jianping and Mr. Hu
Yishi, on 3 September 2004 in respect of the sale and purchase
agreement between the Company, Mr. Yin Jianping and Mr. Hu Yishi
dated 13 April 2004.

Pursuant to the Letter Agreement, the Company has provided
consent to Mr. Yin Jianping and Mr. Hu Yishi in accordance with
Clause 2.3 of the Sale and Purchase Agreement, for Mr. Yin
Jianping and Mr. Hu Yishi to realize or transfer any part of
their respective shareholdings in the share capital of the
Company at any time on the condition that they shall only sell
their shares in the Company to Sun Media Investment Holdings
Limited (SMIH), a shareholder of the Company.

The parties further agree that notwithstanding the aforesaid
consent, the obligations, undertakings and warranties of Mr. Yin
Jianping and Mr. Hu Yishi under the Sale and Purchase Agreement
remain intact, valid, effective and enforceable including but
not limited to the profit warranty under Clauses 4A(b) and (c)
of the Sale and Purchase Agreement.

In addition and further to the Letter Agreement, SMIH has
provided the following undertakings in addition and without
prejudice to the obligations, undertakings and warranties of Mr.
Yin Jianping and Mr. Hu Yishi under the Sale and Purchase
Agreement:

(a) SMIH shall procure the achievement of the Profit Warranty by
Mr. Yin Jianping and Mr. Hu Yishi in accordance with the

(b) SMIH shall also warrant and undertake the achievement of the
Profit Warranty in accordance with the provisions of the Sale

SIAM AGRO: SET Posts SP On Securities
-------------------------------------
Previously, the Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) halted
securities trading of Siam Agro-Industry Pineapple and Others
Public Company Ltd. effective from the first trading session of
2 September 2004 because SAICO has been informed by Fresh Del
Monte Produce N.V. that Fresh Del Monte Produce N.V. entered
into a preliminary purchase agreement with Cirio Del Monte
Group, major shareholders of SAICO, to offer a price of one Euro
for buying SAICO's securities which are totally held by Cirio
Del Monte Group, and the Office of the Securities and Exchange
Commission is in the process of considering a request for an
exemption from the mandatory tender offer.

The SET required SAICO to disclose the information on the new
major shareholder, since the aforementioned information may
affect the price and investment decision in SAICO's securities.

The SET still has not received the required information from the
company which may have affected the stock price of the company.

Therefore, the SET will prohibit the trading of SAICO by posting
the SP sign effective from the second trading session of 2
September 2004 until SAICO is able to disclose the required
information to the SET.
