ONE.TEL LIMITED: Court Commences Proceeding Against Directors
-------------------------------------------------------------
The case on the actions of One.Tel Limited's co-founder Jodee
Rich prior to the multi-million dollar collapse of the company
has commenced hearing in a New South Wales Supreme Court,
reports ABC News Online.

The Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC),
which brought a civil action against Mr. Rich and former One.Tel
finance director Mark Silberman, is seeking $92 million in
damages and wants the two banned from managing companies.

ASIC told the Supreme Court that the two directors failed to
take reasonable steps to assess the company's financial
position.  The regulator also claims that Mr. Rich and Mr.
Silberman withheld information from the board, including the
erosion of hundreds of millions of dollars in cash reserves.

PAN PHARMACEUTICALS: TGA Argues Third-Party Claims
--------------------------------------------------
Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) barrister Steven Rares
will tell the Federal Court that the regulator is not liable to
third parties affected by the closure of Pan Pharmaceuticals in
April 2003, according to the Age.

The regulator would also argue that the court examinations of
its employees set to start on September 22 is an attempt by Pan
Pharmaceuticals founder Jim Selim to gather information to
assist his own legal position.  
                                   
On Wednesday, Justice Arthur Emmett will set aside time to hear
an application from the TGA to discontinue the examinations by
John Sheahan of Sheahan Lock Partners, the administrator of a
small Gold Coast company, Markethaven Pty. Ltd.  The
administrator wants the examination to help him decide whether
to sue the TGA for damages.

But according to Mr. Rares, there was no possible basis for such
suit. "We have a duty to protect public health and in doing that
we can't have duties to third parties," he said. "There is no
connection to the examinable affairs of Markethaven because Pan
collapsed because we took Pan's license away."

Mr. Rares said the fact that Mr. Selim funded Mr. Sheahan to
replace Gold Coast insolvency firm Downie & Associates as
Markethaven's administrator in April was also relevant.

This took place three months after Pan's liquidator, Tony
McGrath of McGrathNicol and Partners, sent Mr. Selim a draft
statement of claim seeking hundreds of millions of dollars in
damages over the former chief executive's role in losing the
license.

"We say Mr. Selim is using this process, having the
administrator he's procured to be appointed, in relation to his
defence in proceedings brought by the liquidator of Pan. It has
nothing, in our submission, to do with the examinable affairs of
this company."

TGA's plan to submit public interest arguments would be argued
by Mr. Sheahan's barrister, Justin Gleeson, SC.

TGA recalled 1600 vitamins and herbal products made by Pan.  
Markethaven sold under contract by Pan, more than half of the
products and lost $3 million as a result of the recall.

SANTOS LIMITED: Reinstates Train-B Plant Section
------------------------------------------------
In a press release, Santos Limited advises that the Moomba
processing plant has been returned to full operating capacity
for natural gas liquids production following the New Year's Day
incident.

The rebuild of the damaged liquids recovery plant section has
been completed with the reinstatement of Train-B.

This follows the start-up of Train-A in June.

With both Train-A and Train-B back to normal, the Moomba plant
is now operating in full liquids recovery mode for the
extraction of natural gas liquids such as LPGs and ethane.

Partial liquids recovery (approximately 70 percent) had been in
operation since Train-A was reinstated in June.

"The reinstatement of Train-B is the final step in returning
Moomba to normal operating capacity," Santos' Managing Director,
Mr. John Ellice-Flint, said Friday.

"This is a significant achievement and was only possible due to
the immense efforts of Santos employees and contractors over the
past eight months.

"Santos also appreciates the support that has been provided by
our customers, the government and pipe-liners."

SONS OF GWALIA: Administrator Assures Creditors of Returns
----------------------------------------------------------
Sons of Gwalia (SoG) administrator Andrew Love of Ferrier
Hodgson announced in a creditors' meeting that the firm's
unsecured creditors will get a return, The Australian reports.

Subdued Sons of Gwalia creditors met at a Perth hotel last
Friday to hear the worst concerning their once respected
company. The meeting resolved to appoint a creditor's committee
of 20 representing the full range of Sons of Gwalia
stakeholders, including employees, trade and financial creditors
and US bondholders.

Mr. Love said the company's liabilities are estimated to be
between $700 million and $800 million.  The administrator
reassured employees that their position was covered many, many
times over.

According to Mr. Love, with the company's suite of world-class
assets, a trade sale of SoG's businesses might not be the best
way to go.  People have been calling Mr. Love and other Ferrier
Hodgson partners expressing interest to buy the company's gold
assets.

Remarks:

(1) Adoption of Revised Statement of Standard Accounting
Practice (SSAP)

In the current year, the Group has adopted for the first time
the Hong Kong Financial Reporting Standards (HKFRS) - SSAP 12
(Revised) "Income Taxes" (SSAP12 (Revised)) issued by the Hong
Kong Society of Accountants (HKSA).

The term of HKFRS is inclusive of SSAPs and Interpretation
approved by HKSA. In the absence of any specific transitional
requirements in SSAP12 (Revised), the new accounting policy has
been applied retrospectively.

These changes have had an effect on the results of the Group in
both financial years. Accordingly, prior year adjustments have
been made. The net loss for the year ended 31 March 2003 was
increased by HK$428,000 and the accumulated deficit as at 31
March 2003 was increased by HK$588,000.

(2) Loss per share

The calculation of basic loss per share is based on the net loss
for the year of HK$80,134,000 (2003: HK$116,226,000) and on the
weighted average number of 2,926,122,622 shares (2003:
2,054,111,618 shares) in issue during the year.

Diluted loss per share for the year ended 31 March 2004 and 2003
has not been presented because no potential dilutive ordinary
share existed during the years.

BANK PERMATA: PPA Expects Final Bids of 2.39 Times Book Value
-------------------------------------------------------------
State asset management company PT Perusahaan Pengelola Aset
(PPA) president Mohammad Syahrial said he expects final bids for
a 51-percent stake in PT Bank Permata of at least 2.39 times the
bank's book value, reports AFX-UK Focus.

The PPA had earlier set a minimum price of 1.8 times Permata's
book value. However, the five short-listed bidders last week
filed preliminary bids ranging from 1.8 to 2.39 times the bank's
book value as of December 2003.

The PPA chief said the new minimum price has now been set at
2.39 times Permata's book value of IDR258 a share as of June
2004, or IDR616.62. He said the PPA is seeking a higher price
because the potential investors will likely receive Bank
Permata's dividend payment for 2004.

The five shortlisted bidders are Singapore's United Overseas
Bank (UOB), Malaysia's Malayan Banking Bhd and Commerce Asset
Holding Bhd, the consortium of Standard Chartered Bank and PT
Astra International, and a consortium led by PT Bank Panin.

BANK PERMATA: PPA To Include Dividend Payment In SPA
----------------------------------------------------
The payment of dividends will be negotiated with the bidders for
a 51-percent stake in PT Bank Permata, and will be included in
the Sales and Purchase Agreement (SPA), reports Indoexchange,
citing state-backed Asset Management Company (PPA) president
director Muhammad Syahrial.

According to the PPA chief, the dividend payment might also be
accomplished by incorporating it into the divestment price
value, so the price can stand at 2.39 times the bank's (audited)
book value in the first semester of 2004. He said that since the
PPA still controls Permata for the June to October 2004 period,
the dividends may also be paid proportionally.

The PPA will also include into the SPA a minimum lock-up of
three years as a measure against the possibility of foreign
investors running away after taking over Bank Permata's stake.
Furthermore, the winning bidder must also contribute to human
resources development and continue to attend to the government's
rights, who would still control 46 percent of the Bank after the
divestment.


BANK PERMATA: Government Denies Foreign Favoritism
--------------------------------------------------
The Indonesian government denied on Friday that it had pushed
local investors aside in favor of foreign ones in the divestment
of its 51-percent stake in PT Bank Permata, reports the Antara
news agency.

The government's denial followed expressions of regret by some
members of the House Commission IX over the lower number of
local investors short-listed for the bid.

"The consortiums (bidding for the stake) also include local
investors," said Finance Minister Boediono. "Should the House
ask me to explain the divestment of the government stake in Bank
Permata, I am ready to do so", he said.

He added, however, the House has issued no official request for
an explanation on the divestment process.

Mr. Boediono also stated that the evaluation of Permata's shares
will be left to teams from the Asset Management Company, the
Finance Ministry, and an independent team. Still, only the
Finance Minister can set the final sale price for Permata's
shares, he added.


PERTAMINA: To Construct Hundreds of New Gas Stations
----------------------------------------------------
In its hopes of eventually controlling at least 20 percent of
Indonesia's gas stations, state-owned oil and gas company PT
Pertamina is planning to build across the country hundreds of
new gas stations, reports The Jakarta Post.

"We want to develop our own gas stations and run them directly.
We'll try to control at least 20 percent of the total, but of
course it will depend on our budget," Pertamina director of
marketing and business Ari Soemarno said on Saturday.

According to Mr. Ari, building one gas station would cost,
excluding the price for the land, some IDR5 billion
(US$538,909).

Of the existing 2,537 gas stations all over Indonesia, only
seven gas stations in Jakarta, Palembang, Medan, Makassar and
Surabaya are owned and operated by Pertamina.

Mr. Ari added that, with the fuel retail sector slated for
liberalization next year, Pertamina is ready to compete with
multinational firms such as BP PLc., ExxonMobil, Shell, Petronas
and Caltex, all of which are interested in entering the oil and
gas downstream sector.

"We really should get ready and be prepared to compete with them
since the liberalization process is drawing near," he asserted.

Pertamina's monopoly rights in the management of fuel
distribution in the country will only be valid until November
2005, states Law No. 22/2001. Therefore, local and foreign
private investors can then enter the downstream sector.

The Downstream Oil and Gas Authority Body (BPH Migas) will act
as the regulator.

PERTAMINA: Still Taking Over Cepu Block
---------------------------------------
PT Pertamina President Director Widya Purnama insisted the state
oil and gas firm will manage the Cepu block by itself in 2010,
after rejecting in principle the head of agreement (HoA)
submitted by ExxonMobil Oil Indonesia Inc (EMOI), saying it does
not benefit the country, reports the Antara news agency.

After meeting with top ExxonMobil officials on Thursday, Mr.
Widya said, "We will revert to our first option in which we
ourselves will manage the Cepu block."

According to the Pertamina chief, EMOI had conveyed hopes it
could continue to manage the block after its present contract
expires in 2010. Mr. Widya, however, said he did not want to
promise the U.S-based firm anything since he still has to
consult with State Enterprises Minister Laksamana Sukardi and
Pertamina's commissioners.

He said EMOI could continue operating the Cepu block until 2010,
then PT Pertamina would take over the block's management, which
it plans to do in cooperation with other partners.

In order to manage the block, Pertamina would need some US$2
billion in investment funds which could be raised either by
seeking a loan or a bond issue, the Pertamina chief said.

DAIEI INCORPORATED: Must Undergo Asset Assessment by IRCJ
---------------------------------------------------------
Minister of Industrial Revitalization and Administrative Reforms
Kazuyoshi Kaneko has suggested that the Industrial
Revitalization Corp. of Japan (IRCJ) assess the quality of
Daiei's assets before getting involved in the ailing retailer's
rehabilitation, relates the Japan Times.

Daiei and its three main creditor banks have remained at
loggerheads after month-long negotiations over whether the
troubled firm will seek help from the state-backed IRCJ.

UFJ Bank, Mizuho Corporate Bank and Sumitomo Banking Corporation
firmly believe that IRCJ can best help Daiei's restructuring
since the state-backed turn-around body will be allowed to buy
loans from lenders of debt-ridden firms by March.

Daiei must submit itself to a complete asset quality appraisal,
which will take approximately three months, before accepting
IRCJ's aid.

JAPAN TOBACCO: To Close U.S. Unit for Leaf Purchasing Support
-------------------------------------------------------------
Japan Tobacco Inc. (JT) (TSE:2914) on August 30 announced on JCN
Newswire that it will close the company's leaf purchasing
support subsidiary, JT Proserve Inc. (JTP), located in Raleigh,
North Carolina, in the United States, in an effort to continue
optimizing the company's overall global leaf purchasing process.
The closure of JTP is scheduled to begin this month.

After the acquisition of RJ Reynolds' international tobacco
operations in 1999, JT pushed for integration in several areas
with respect to the company's leaf purchasing programs for the
entire JT group. This includes unification on the tobacco grades
being procured, purchasing strategies and overall purchasing
methods. In its latest medium-term management plan, "JT PLAN-V,"
JT also stated that the company would optimize its global
tobacco leaf purchasing. In-line with these strategies and in
order to expedite decision-making and to establish a more
efficient business structure, the entire operational function of
JT group's global leaf procurement was integrated into JT
International S.A., a wholly owned subsidiary of JT.

After completion of the integration process, it was determined
that JTP's role in the purchasing of tobacco leaves was no
longer necessary and thus the decision was made to close the
operation.

It is expected that the financial impact of this decision on the
company's consolidated accounts will be minimal.

manufacturer of tobacco products. The company manufactures

Kanebo, which received a loan waiver of JPY99.5 billion from its
creditors last month, will also slash its capital by 99.7

UFJ HOLDINGS: To Write Off JPY700Bln Bad Loans
----------------------------------------------
UFJ Holdings Incorporated plans to eliminate more than JPY700
billion (US$6.33 billion) in bad loans in the first half of the
current fiscal year, compared with its earlier target of JPY210
billion, Reuters reports, citing the daily Mainichi Shimbun.

Beleaguered UFJ expects to hasten the disposal of its bad loans
as it helps expedite the restructuring of its big troubled
borrowers ahead of a planned merger with Mitsubishi Tokyo
Financial Group Incorporated in October.

According to the daily, the increased write-off would cut UFJ's
bad loan ratio to around 3 percent for March 2005, down from the
10 percent reported in June.

*JCR Continues to Place Japanese Bank Merger Players on CM
----------------------------------------------------------
Japan Credit Rating Agency Limited (JCR) continues placing the
ratings for the Bank of Tokyo Mitsubishi, Mitsubishi Tokyo
Financial Group, Mitsubishi Trust & Banking, UFJ Bank and UFJ
Trust Bank under Credit Monitor (CM).

Rationale:

Mitsubishi Tokyo Financial Group (MTFG) and UFJ entered into a
basic agreement on their merger on August 12, 2004. MTFG agreed
to provide JPY700 billion to UFJ for recapitalization on the day
before the basic agreement. Feasibility of integration of MTFG
and UFJ group depends on due diligence to be conducted. The
details of the integration plan have not been made clear yet.
JCR continued placing ratings for MTFG and UFG group companies
under Credit Monitor to examine carefully aides to be extended
from MTFG including recapitalization to UFJ and plans for the
merger to be reflected on the ratings.

JCR believes that merger will exert a positive impact on UFJ
group due to support to be extended from MTFG. On the other
hand, MTFG's financial health such as quality of capital will be
lowered due to the merger unless it raises equity anew
externally, although MTFG will be able to acquire clients and
know-how for retail in Kansai and Tokai from UFJ. JCR will pay
attention to the future developments as to size of additional
cost to be borne by it with respect to disposal of bad loans of
UFJ group. JCR will also watch carefully whether or not MTFG
takes measures to retain the financial base as strong as before
and also the size of the measures.

ASIANA AIRLINES: Overseas Flights Booked for Chuseok Holidays
-------------------------------------------------------------
South Korea's two major carriers have reported a busy flight
schedule for the Chuseok holidays, according to Chosun Ilbo.  

Asiana Airlines and Korean Air have reported on Sunday that
flight reservations for popular holiday resorts such as Hong
Kong, Bangkok, Manila, Guam, Sydney and Shanghai are almost full
while a 90 percent reservation rate for New York, LA and Tokyo
has been reached.

For the holiday season, Asiana Airlines will operate 26
additional flights to Tianjin, Narita, Asahikawa, Haikou,
Bangkok and Saipan, while Korean Air will operate 10 more
flights to Sapporo, Bangkok, Manila, Guam, and Hainandao.

However, Asiana's temporary flights for the Korean Thanksgiving
holidays have been cut from 77 last year to 45, while Korean
Air's flights have been reduced to 16 from 105 in 2003.

According to the airlines, the reductions are due to the
prioritization of international routes because of increased oil
prices, not to mention the drastic decline in domestic passenger
traffic due to the emergence of the bullet train.

In order to increase capacity for the holidays, both airlines
are also replacing the aircraft used for flights to Hawaii,
Kungming, and Hanoi with larger models.

KOOKMIN BANK: Card Division Proceeds With E-Mart Fee Hike
---------------------------------------------------------
The credit card division of Kookmin Bank has pushed through on
Monday with its plans to increase commission fees charged to E-
Mart, South Korea's biggest discounter, reports Yonhap News.

According to KB Card, it has raised from 1.5 percent of revenues
to 2.2 percent the fees it charges the retailer for using its
card system. The credit card issuer's decision follows a similar
move on Wednesday by BC Card, South Korea's biggest card firm,
which raises commission fees from 1.5 percent to 2.0-2.35 per
cent at the 65 outlets nationwide of E-Mart. The retailer
promptly responded by refusing to accept BC cards at its stores.

Despite the fee increases, however, E-Mart, with the convenience
of consumers in mind, will not terminate contracts with KB Card
and LG Card, whose own fee hike is set to take effect today.
Instead, the discount chain said it will sue the two card firms
for damages as soon as their contracts expire in November.

The commission fee hikes were sought by the credit card firms in
order to make up for income lost with the dwindling of its cash
advance business due to consumers' inability to repay loans.
They argue that raising the fees is the only way for their
operations to normalize.

However, retail stores condemn the hikes as the credit card
companies' move to make retailers scapegoats for their own
business mismanagement. Last Thursday, E-Mart filed a complaint
on Thursday with the country's fair trade watchdog, which has
already launched an investigation into allegations that the
credit card firms colluded for commission fee hikes.

PAN OCEAN: Sale Likely To Fetch KRW700Bln, Say Observers
--------------------------------------------------------
The recent shipping boom in South Korea has led industry
observers to forecast that the upcoming sale of Pan Ocean
Shipping Co., Korea's third-largest commercial shipping firm,
may fetch as much as KRW700 billion, reports The Korea Herald.

"Obviously, Pan Ocean is a prestigious company that has a lot to
offer to anybody who ends up buying it," says Jee Heon-seok, an
analyst at Hyundai Securities covering utility and
transportation issues.

A total of seven investors are vying for Pan Ocean, namely: a
consortium comprising STX Group, STX Shipbuilding and STX
Energy, E1 (formerly LG-Caltex Gas Corp.), Dongkuk Steel Mill
Co., Korea Line Corp., Cinokor Merchant Marine, Kumho and
Israeli shipping firm Zodeac Maritime.

Of the seven, shipping industry experts are reportedly pegging
the STX-led consortium as the frontrunner, citing a distinctive
synergy effect.

The sale, which being managed by accounting firm KMPG Samjong,
is set to be concluded next month.

"The results of this merger and acquisition will decide our
fate. Our only hope is that a stable company that is capable of
sound management will take over to help us continue on our path
to recovery," said Kim Deok-ho of Pan Ocean.

After emerging from court receivership in 2002, Pan Ocean has
reported a KRW43.1-billion net profit in 2003. The firm is seen
to rake in a larger net profit this year from estimated sales of
KRW2.5 trillion.

NATIONAL POWER: ERC Grants 98 Centavos Rate Hike Per kWh
--------------------------------------------------------
The Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) has issued an order dated
September 3, 2004 granting Provisional Authority to the National
Power Corporation (NPC), the ERC announced on its Web site. The
order authorizes NPC to increase its rates by an average of PhP
0.9798 per kWh as compared to the requested average increase of
PhP 1.8700 per kWh, a reduction of 48%.

The new generation rates, which will become effective on
September 26, 2004, differ for each grid. Luzon will see an
increase of PhP 1.2318 per kWh while the Visayas will only see
an increase of PhP 0.2202 per kWh and Mindanao an increase of
PhP 0.2665 per kWh. For low consumption lifeline customers the
impact will be offset by lifeline discounts of up to 50%.

Distribution Utilities which sources all of their power from NPC
will also have to raise their rates at the same time as NPC in
order to pass these costs on to their customers. Other
Distribution Utilities such as MERALCO will not be able to pass
on the higher cost until an application under GRAM is filed and
approved. No Distribution Utility will earn additional profits
as a result of this order.

The reduction resulted mainly from corrections in the valuation
methodology used for NPC's rate base, annualization of Ancillary
Service Revenue and exclusion of unsupported losses on foreign
exchange fluctuations.

As Provisional Authority the rate relief is subject to refund
should the final determination of rates be lower than those
authorized in this order.

The ERC will continue to hold more public hearings to receive
additional evidence from all interested parties before the
issuance of its final order. It is the ERC's hope that with the
cooperation of all parties the final order can be issued by the
end of this year.

NPC had requested that the ERC adopt Time of Use rates, which
are designed to charge customers different rates each hour of
the day based on the cost of power actually generated during
that hour. The ERC indicated that more data and additional
analysis are needed before the Time of Use rate design proposed
by NPC can be implemented for all NPC customers. However,
pending this additional analysis, the adoption of time of use
rates as provisionally designed by ERC can be on an optional
basis.

Chairman Rodolfo B. Albano, Jr. said "The Commission is working
hard to assure the public that the rates they pay for
electricity reflect the true cost of providing such service and
nothing more".

NATIONAL POWER: Energy Secretary Defends Latest Rate Hike
---------------------------------------------------------
Energy Secretary Vincent S. Perez Jr. said the latest rise in
electricity rates would help improve the financial viability of
the power industry, the Business World reports.

The Energy Regulatory Board headed by former Isabela Rep.
Rodolfo B. Albano, Jr. has allowed National Power Corporation
(Napocor) a provisional rate increase of an average 98
centavos/kWh. Napocor earlier petitioned for an average increase
of PhP1.87/kWh.

Mr. Perez said the government would make sure the increase would
have minimal impact on poor consumers.

He also said the Energy department would continue to spearhead
energy conservation measures, including public education on
saving electricity.

NEGROS NAVIGATION: Clarifies Rehab Update Report
------------------------------------------------
This is in reference to the news article entitled "Creditors of
Nenaco will get equal treatment, says receiver" published in the
September 3, 2004 issue of The Manila Times (Internet Edition).

The article reported the following: "Debt ridden Negros
Navigation Co., will settle its obligations equally and will not
follow a proposed payment scheme in its rehabilitation plan
listing some obligations as priority payments. The lawyer Monico
Jacob, Nenaco receiver, in an evaluation and recommendation
report, said the shipping firm `treats all creditors equally,
such that there will be no priority payments for the critical
trade suppliers/contractors and secured creditors and that all
outstanding obligations, both secured and unsecured, shall be
restructured under the same terms and conditions.' x x x"

Negros Navigation Co., Inc. ("NN"), in its letter to the
Exchange dated September 6, 2004, disclosed that:

"We cannot confirm the above-mentioned newspaper report because
the same quotes the evaluation and recommendation report of the
rehabilitation receiver which to date we have not yet received."

NEGROS NAVIGATION: Sale Proceeds Not Enough to Pay Debts
--------------------------------------------------------
Monico V. Jacob, the court-appointed rehabilitation receiver of
Negros Navigation Co. (Nenaco), announced that the sale proceeds
of the shipping firm's assets would not be enough to pay its
debts, Business World reports.

Mr. Jacob prepared a liquidation analysis on the premise that
Nenaco's assets will be disposed on a fire-sale basis within a
period of 90 days.

The results, according to Mr. Jacob's study, are gloomy. "Given
the present domestic economic conditions and the dominance of
one shipping company in the local shipping industry, the
disposition of the assets of the petitioner at fire-sale prices
will not generate sufficient cash to settle all the obligations
of the petitioner," the receiver said in the study, which is
part of the 10-year corporate rehabilitation plan submitted to a
Manila court last Wednesday.

The study revealed that the sale of Nenaco's assets would only
generate some PhP1.208 billion, which is less than half of its
PhP2.5 billion financial obligations.

Mr. Jacob added that the proceeds would only be enough to pay
Nenaco's tax liabilities, 80 percent of the secured obligations
and 50 percent of the financial leasing obligations.

MANAGER MEDIA: Releases Second Quarter 2004 Performance
-------------------------------------------------------
Manager Media Group Public Co., Ltd. and its subsidiaries issued
to the Stock Exchange of Thailand a report of the company's
performance in the second quarter of 2004.

The net profit is THB11.92 million compared to THB.74 million in
the same period last year.  The following are the reasons for
the difference:

In the beginning of 2004, the company has increased the number
of personnel in various sections for the expansion of the
business, which can be seen from the increased revenue at
THB54.98 million (88.46 percent).  The implications of the
increased revenue are:

(A) Recruitment of more Account Executives
(B) Adjustment of new Marketing Strategy for new customers
(C) Increase of difference in Advertising Medias

While expenses have increased to THB43.87 million (71.76
percent), both revenue and expenses are an increment of the
continuous investments, which the company has tried to control
within budget.

Please be informed accordingly.
Yours faithfully,

Previously, payment for shares was determined to be made by
