GRIBBLES GROUP: Former Boss Holds the Key to Healthscope Bid
------------------------------------------------------------
A possible AU$271 million takeover bid of Gribbles Group by
hospital operator Healthscope now lies in the hands of ousted
Gribbles chief Wallace Cameron, reports the Sydney Morning
Herald.

Gribbles founder and former CEO Mr. Cameron, who effectively
controls 43 percent of the pathology firm through EC Medical
Investments, holds the key to Healthscope's 60 cents per share
bid setting an acceptance condition of 90 percent of Gribbles
shares.

Healthscope M.D. Bruce Dixon is confident Mr. Cameron would join
Gribbles' independent directors in accepting the bid.

Sources, on the other hand, said Mr. Cameron "is considering"
the offer but will "sit back" and observe market reaction,
noting "Healthscope was pretty interested in the stake" and the
deal "rises or falls on that".

Speculations arose that Mr. Cameron, who is currently in a court
tussle with Gribbles over a disputed loan, is waiting for a
higher offer, and if is forthcoming, refuse the current bid and
punt on the share price drifting lower before renewing his own
lapsed private equity bid.

Healtscope's US$271 million offer would be funded through an
AU$195 million share issue and AU$76 million debt facility.
Gribbles' outstanding debt of AU$144 million would be absorbed
by the hospital operator.

According to Mr. Dixon, redundancies at Gribbles would be
minimal and no Gribbles board member would be transferred to
Healthscope.

Mr. Dixon would head the combined Company.

HIH INSURANCE: Bradley Cooper Faces Trial on Six Charges
--------------------------------------------------------
Mr. Bradley David Cooper was committed in the Downing Centre
Local Court in Sydney on Friday to stand trial on six charges of
corruptly giving cash benefit to influence an agent of HIH
Insurance Limited (HIH) and seven charges of publishing a false
or misleading statement with intent to obtain a financial
advantage.

It is alleged Mr. Cooper paid between AU$119,000 and AU$124,000
to Mr. William Howard, a former Finance General Manager of HIH,
to facilitate payments to Mr. Cooper, or entities associated
with him, totaling AU$4.9 million plus the forgiveness of a
further debt owed to HIH of AU$1.79 million. The charges
regarding false or misleading statements relate to various
occasions where HIH or its agents were misled into making
further payments to Mr. Cooper or associated companies.

Mr. Cooper has had his previous bail conditions continued and he
is to appear in the NSW Supreme Court on a date to be fixed.

The matter was investigated by ASIC with the assistance of the
Australian Federal Police. The charges are being prosecuted by
the Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions.

JAMES HARDIE: Names Interim CEO After Peter Macdonald Resigns
-------------------------------------------------------------
James Hardie on Friday announced the appointment of Mr. Louis
Gries to the position of Interim Chief Executive Officer for
James Hardie.

Mr. Gries is currently Executive Vice President, Operations with
James Hardie, based in the United States. The interim
appointment is effective immediately.

Mr. Gries joined James Hardie in February 1991 and has 12 years
of general management experience with the Company. He has been
Executive Vice President Operations since January 2003.

James Hardie also announced the appointment of Mr. Russell Chenu
to the role of Executive Vice President, Australia. An
experienced Chief Financial Officer, Mr. Chenu will also take
over the role of Interim CFO pending the appointment of a
permanent replacement.

In the role of Executive Vice President, Australia, Mr. Chenu
will have responsibility for corporate and governance activity
in Australia, and will be involved in the resolution of asbestos
compensation matters. Jamie Chilcoff, as Executive Vice
President International, will continue to have responsibility
for Australian business operations.

Last month Mr. Peter Macdonald stepped aside as CEO but remained
with the Company in a senior operational role. Mr. Macdonald has
now tendered his resignation, effective today. Mr. Macdonald is
expected to remain in a consulting capacity with the Company for
an interim period.

Mr. Peter Shafron has also tendered his resignation to the
Company, following his decision last month to step aside from
the position of CFO.

Chairman of James Hardie, Meredith Hellicar said the appointment
of a proven operational executive to the interim CEO role would
ensure business continuity during this period of executive
change with the Company.

"Louis Gries knows the James Hardie business exceptionally well
and has a very strong performance record with the Company.
Having Louis take over the interim CEO role and supported by an
executive of the calibre of Russell Chenu provides us with an
excellent basis for continued strong business performance while
seeking to resolve the current asbestos compensation issues",
Ms. Hellicar said.

Ms. Hellicar thanked outgoing Chief Executive, Peter Macdonald,
who has been with the Company since 1993 and CEO since 1998.

"Peter's contribution to the James Hardie business is a matter
of record. He has produced above market growth consistently over
many years and I thank him for this contribution to the
Company", she said.

Deputy Chairman appointed

Ms. Hellicar also announced that Mr. John Barr will take over
the role of Deputy Chairman of the Supervisory and Joint Boards
of the Company, effective immediately.

Mr. Barr joined the Company as non-executive Director in
September 2003. He has more than 30 years experience in the
North American industrial sector.

2nd quarter and half year results announcement (ASX)

To allow the interim CEO and CFO sufficient time to consider the
results of the Company for the second quarter and half year
ended 30 September 2004, the scheduled market announcement
date of 11 November 2004 will be changed. The new announcement
date will be advised in due
course but it is expected to be on or before 30 November 2004.

JAMES HARDIE: AU$10-Mln Exec Payouts Must Go To Asbestos Victims
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Australian Council of Trade Unions (ACTU) revealed in a
press release that ACTU Secretary Greg Combet has described an
AU$10 million payout to disgraced James Hardie Executives Peter
Macdonald and Peter Shafron as disgusting and outrageous.

Mr. Combet said:

"This is utterly disgusting and obscene. Peter Macdonald and
Peter Shafron played pivotal roles in removing assets from the
claims of Australian asbestos victims.

"I think the Australian community will be rightly disgusted at
these payouts.

"At the very time when Australian asbestos victims are fighting
for their right to just compensation from James Hardie, these
two disgraced executives are to receive close to $10 million in
payouts from the Company plus bonuses and share options.

"That money should be immediately returned to victims. It should
be donated to the asbestos compensation foundation so that it
can go to asbestos victims. That is what the community would
expect and it is the only decent thing for Mr. Macdonald, Mr.
Shafron and James Hardie to do.

"We will be examining any way in which these two executives
might be held to be personally liable so that this money can be
returned to the asbestos victims who rightly deserve it."

James Hardie announced the payouts Friday following the
resignation from the Company of CEO Mr. Macdonald and CFO Mr.
Shafron.


NATIONAL AUSTRALIA: CEO Finalizes New Leadership Structure
----------------------------------------------------------
The Chief Executive of the National in Australia, Mr. Ahmed
Fahour, on Friday finalized a new leadership team and a more
streamlined structure to help revitalize the business.

The new structure combines all of the National's business units
in Australia; Financial Services Australia and the Australian
operations of MLC and Institutional Markets and Services, into
three core categories:

(1) Customer - responsible for all front line sales and customer
relationships

(2) Products - responsible for end-to-end product management and
integration of risk, IT and operational processes into products

(3) Support - centralized support services for the Australian
business

The new leadership team comprises executives from each of the
three existing businesses and external executives with extensive
business experience from a range of sectors.

"The new leadership team rivals any business in the country in
terms of experience and capability," he said.  "Our first
objective is to rebuild our reputation with customers."

"The new structure will improve our customer focus, provide
clear accountability for sales and service, and streamline our
business to eliminate internal silos and provide a more
competitive cost structure."

ONEWORLD SEMINARS: SC Orders Halt in Illegal Operations
-------------------------------------------------------
The Australian Securities and Investments Commission has
obtained orders in the Supreme Court of Queensland against Mr.
Jack C. Weavers, the promoter of a wealth creation seminar, and
his Company Oneworld Seminars Pty Ltd (Oneworld).

The orders, which were made by consent, prohibit Mr. Weavers,
formerly known as Hamid Alenaddaf, and his associates from
providing financial advice in contravention of the Corporations
Act to members of the public, including Oneworld's introductory
sessions, three-day seminars, Graduate Program and Mentoring
Programs.

The Court also made orders prohibiting Mr. Weavers' operation of
specialized courses involving foreign currency trading, share
trading and luxury car financing.

The Court made further orders preventing Mr. Weavers from
promoting or operating managed investment schemes, such as
Investment Clubs, where members of the public were encouraged to
contribute money to Mr. Weavers in order for him to trade on the
share market.

ASIC commenced an investigation into the conduct of Mr. Weavers
following complaints from the public.

ASIC is concerned that Mr. Weavers and Oneworld are providing
financial advice without holding an Australian financial
services license, and operating managed investment schemes,
without registering them, as required under the law.

'If people are interested in attending wealth creation seminars,
ASIC believes it is usually safer and far better value to attend
seminars run by reputable organizations and licensed financial
services businesses', ASIC Executive Director of Consumer
Protection and International, Mr. Greg Tanzer, said.

'ASIC will act to restrain the activities of anybody who is not
appropriately licensed and competent to provide financial
advice', Mr. Tanzer said.

The matter returns to Court on for 6 December 2004 for further
directions.

Background

Mr. Weavers controls an extensive, nation-wide wealth creation
business based on the Gold Coast. The business consists of the
promotion and sale of financial seminars for members of the
public that run for up to three days. Topics covered include
moneymaking strategies in areas such as share trading, foreign
currency trading and the financing of luxury cars.

The seminars are held in various locations throughout Australia,
including the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, Cairns and Perth.

The seminar operators provided ongoing guidance and networking
opportunities, for a fee, in the form of a Graduate Program and
a Mentoring Program. Upon completion of the programs,
participants were allowed entry into certain investment clubs
and joint ventures organized by Mr. Weavers, as well as entry to
the One world Seminars website.


QANTAS AIRWAYS: Expects Profit Growth in FY05
---------------------------------------------
Qantas Airways Limited is bullish it will record a profit growth
in fiscal 2005 amid high fuel prices, Dow Jones reports.

Qantas Chief Executive Geoff Dixon confirmed the airline
maintains its outlook commentary that was disclosed in August,
although it did not give any specific earnings forecast.

For the year ended June 30, the carrier tallied a net profit of
AU$648.4 million, up 89% from a year earlier.

Asked if the airline had seen a drop in demand following the
introduction of its passenger fuel surcharge in May, and two
subsequent increases in the surcharge, Dixon said, "there's no
definite trend yet, but certainly we see a faint inkling in a
couple of months" of demand slipping.

Meanwhile, Qantas Chairwoman Margaret Jackson insists the
government should remove the Qantas Sales Act, which limits
foreign ownership to 49 percent, in order to enable the airline
to access offshore capital.

WORKING METALS: Falls Into Administration with AU600,000 Debt
-------------------------------------------------------------
Working Metals Pty Ltd, the Company behind Modular Metals Garage
Doors, has called in administrators with AU$600,000 debts,
reports The West Australian.

The surprise move has left about 50 Perth homeowners uncertain
about whether they have lost their deposits.

It is understood that the failed Company, which supplied patios,
sheds and garages, has banked AU$30,000 in deposits from
customers but have cashed deposits checks in the past two weeks
after receiving advice about its financial woes.

Working Metals Director Jim Werkler has appointed Korda Mentha
partner Oren Zohar as administrator of the Company.

Korda Mentha consultant Louis Nilant confirmed the group's five
staff had been laid off, while the Company refrains from seeking
new customers or starting new jobs. However, the ailing supplier
is completing some work that had been started.

Mr. Nilant also noted the possibility of the business being
sold, saying many parties are interested in acquiring the
operation.

BANK DAGANG: Court Revokes Litigation Edict
-------------------------------------------
The State Administrative Court (PTUN) Jakarta has granted the
appeal submitted by Bank Dagang Bali in April 5, 2004 to defer a
Central Bank revocation edict upon its license, Indoexchange
relates.

The decision, established by PTUN Decree No. 089-G.PTUN/2004/Jkt
and issued on October 20, ordered the central bank to
immediately restore the bank to its previous condition. The bank
has also returned to its earlier legal status.

Bank Dagang's legal representative, Dodi Abdur Kadir, said the
bank will undertake the necessary legal actions, and form a
special team to coordinate steps for the re-operation of Bank
Dagang.

The central bank is reportedly planning to lodge an appeal
against the PTUN verdict.

In April, the central bank has revoked the Bank Dagang's
business permit due to solvability and liquidity problems that
have caused a decline in its minimum capital supply ratio and
clearing ratio.

* Sugiharto Pledges to Fight Graft in State Companies
-----------------------------------------------------
Newly appointed Minister of State Enterprises Sugiharto vowed to
rid the ministry of corrupt officials and prevent political
parties from taking advantage of the profits reaped from state-
owned enterprises (SOEs), The Jakarta Post says.

Sugiharto pledged he would create a special task force to follow
up and investigate reports of corruption in the ministry and in
SOEs during his first 100 days in office.

"The President has ordered all ministers to institute clean
government in their ministries. As an aide to the President, I
will obey the order by trying to totally eradicate corruption
and collusive practices within the ministry and in SOEs," Mr.
Sugiharto declared.

For many years, SOEs have been used as milking cows by the
country's political parties to fund political campaigns. It has
been a common practice for the parties to get their supporters
into the board of SOEs or to ask SOEs to pay some of their
community development funds to parties in exchange for allowing
the SOE executives to stay in office.

In order to help prevent corruption, Sugiharto said the ministry
would set up a complaint box for the public to report incidents
of corruption involving ministry officials and SOE executives.

When ask about plans to privatize some SOEs, the new minister
advised he would push ahead with the privatization scheme that
gained approval from the House of Representatives for the time
being.

He explained that he will concentrate in improving the values
and performances of SOEs, instead of selling them off to help
narrow the country's widening budget deficit.

MITSUBISHI FUSO: Adds Maintenance Staff to Hasten Recall Scheme
---------------------------------------------------------------
As part of its efforts to accelerate safety checks on recall-
related initiatives, Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation
said it will add some 2,000 workers to its maintenance staff,
says Asia Pulse.

The beleaguered truck maker will bolster the number of
maintenance personnel at its sales branches from 3,000 to about
5,000.

Some 300 workers will be sent off from Mitsubishi Fuso in
October, increasing the supplemental staff from the parent to
around 450. Another 700 will be dispatched from cooperating
maintenance facilities and other sites.

In addition, a specialized team consisting of 110 workers will
be stationed at the sales branches to take charge of recall
measures for Mitsubishi Fuso buses, which have been involved in
a number of accidents.

Since the firm is currently experiencing a shortage of
replacement parts, Mitsubishi Fuso will begin procuring
components from South Korea in November to help speed up its
safety-related programs.

MITSUBISHI MOTORS: Launches Internal Probe Over Recall Issues
-------------------------------------------------------------
Mitsubishi Motors Corporation determined that it was essential
to launch an investigation ("internal investigation") by a group
of external lawyers into the reasons for, and facts relevant to,
the past recall problems (but investigation of specific
individuals or civil liability are not within the scope) with
the goal of taking preventative steps disciplinary measures to
see that they do not happen a second time.

The subject of internal investigation is the broad examination
of the past decision making processes and the corporate culture
which lead to the recall problem of 2000, and will further
include an investigation into defects, including the hub and
clutch housing defects, although it will not necessarily stop
there.

Our Company is cooperating fully and without exception, leaving
the entire investigating system and method to the discretion of
the team of external lawyers, which includes the submission of
forms and making testimonies, etc., as necessary, and setting no
limits to the extent of the overall investigation.

Investigation framework

(1) Shared lawyers (nine persons)

In March of this year, Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Company
commissioned a group of lawyers to launch an investigation into
the causes of the hub incident, and in May began another
investigation into the clutch housing incident.

Mitsubishi Motors, in its investigation of decision making
processes and corporate culture that contributed to the recall
problems of 2000, independently commissioned four lawyers on
July 6th (herein to be called the "independent lawyers"). But,
with regard to the hub and clutch housing issue, in order to
facilitate the rapid gathering of facts, Mitsubishi Motors
commissioned the same nine lawyers as Mitsubishi Fuso (herein to
be called the "shared lawyers"), and will see to it that the
independent lawyers can share information provided by the shared
lawyers.

(2) The roles of the independent lawyers (four persons) and the
shared lawyers

With regard to the internal investigation whose primary focus is
to determine the past decision making processes and the
corporate culture which lead to the recall problem of 2000, the
four independent lawyers who are conducting the investigation
have been studying archived materials and hearing testimony from
several persons involved at the time of the 2000 problem. The
independent lawyers have been gathering this information in
strictest confidence and have not divulged it to the shared
lawyers.

As for the Mitsubishi Fuso hub and clutch housing problems, the
independent lawyers have analyzed and evaluated evidence from
the shared lawyers, and they will make further independent
inquires into the matter as the need arises.

The responsibility of the independent lawyers is to make a final
report and presentation to the Company on the Mitsubishi Fuso
hub and clutch housing problems as well as the past decision
making processes and the corporate culture which lead to the
recall problem of 2000, in which the shared lawyers will take no
part whatsoever.

(3) Alteration of the investigation

The Company has decided that, with regard to the shared lawyers,
once the prospect of the original goal of understanding the
results of the investigation has been attained by the end of
October, the internal investigation will be restructured such
that it will be handled exclusively by the independent lawyers.
At that time, the Company will terminate the assignment of one
of the four independent lawyers who has been separately
commissioned by Mitsubishi Fuso, and their assignment to the
internal investigation will be concluded in order to clarify
that the investigation is being conducted by Mitsubishi Motors.

* S&P Affirms JAL, ANA Ratings
------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services on Friday revised the outlook
to stable from negative on its 'BB-' long-term rating on All
Nippon Airways Co. Ltd. At the same time, Standard & Poor's
affirmed its 'BB-' long-term corporate and senior unsecured bond
ratings on ANA and Japan Airlines Corp., and its 'BB-' long-term
corporate rating on Japan Airlines International Co. Ltd.,
reflecting recovery in demand following eased concerns over the
negative impact of terrorism, severe acute respiratory syndrome
(SARS), and avian flu.

The outlook revision on ANA reflects steady progress in its
rationalization measures, including cost reductions, optimum
arrangement of airplanes, and improvement of revenue management.
In addition, given its strong hedge ratio, which will offset the
negative impact of fuel cost hike, substantial deterioration in
earnings now appears unlikely.

The rating on JAL reflects the vulnerability of its cost
structure, which still lacks flexibility, to unexpected external
factors. Although the effects of its business consolidation with
Japan Air System are gradually emerging, concerns over financial
deterioration because of rising fuel costs, which will pressure
earnings, remains.

ANA recorded a profit in fiscal 2003 (ended March 31, 2004) and
resumed dividends for the first time in seven years. The Company
also recorded 2.4 billion consolidated net profit in the first
quarter of fiscal 2004.

This improvement in profitability was boosted by the
introduction of systems to optimize passenger revenue and
management of its airline fleet in late 2003. ANA is expected to
improve its competitiveness in overseas markets by utilizing the
Star Alliance, a global airlines network.

Rising fuel costs in fiscal 2004 have been successfully passed
on to international airfares and freight rates. ANA's plan to
turnaround its international operations, which have recorded
losses in recent years, in fiscal 2004 should be achievable.
However, substantial improvement in its financial profile is
unlikely in the short-term, given the carrier's heavy debt
burden with total debt to capital (after lease obligation
adjustments) standing at 89% for fiscal 2003. Nevertheless,
ANA's cash flow generation remains relatively sound.

JAL has made progress in cutting costs by improving work force
efficiency and management of its domestic air fleet since its
consolidation in Oct. 2002. The effects of consolidation have
emerged gradually, including steady recovery of demand and
improvement of unit price per passenger backed by an expansion
of flight routes and volumes, and a revision of flight
schedules.

JAL has also aimed to improve its earnings structure in overseas
operations by expanding its business in China and cutting costs
within the JAL group. However, the Company still lacks
flexibility in adjusting to demand fluctuation and in its cost
structure, leaving it vulnerable to passenger volume drops
caused by unexpected external factors.

Rising fuel costs are also a concern. JAL has passed part of the
fuel cost increase to international airfares and freight rates
and intends to offset the remaining part through its own
initiatives, although a substantial impact on earnings appears
inevitable, given the hedge ratio in fiscal 2004 is expected to
stand at about 50%. It may not be easy for
JAL to attain a profit in fiscal 2004 (ending March 31, 2005),
considering it recorded 40.8 billion in net losses in the first
quarter of fiscal 2004.

Substantial improvement in JAL's financial profile is unlikely
in the short-tem given its heavy debt burden with total debt to
capital (after lease obligation adjustments) standing at 90% in
fiscal 2003.

CHOHUNG BANK: Cancels NY Planned Roadshow Due to High Demand
------------------------------------------------------------
Chohung Bank has to cancel its planned roadshows in New York
next week due to a high demand for its $400 million subordinated
bond which will likely result to a hike in the price of the
offer, reports Dow Jones, citing Yonhap News.

Even before the formal marketing of the exercise started, the
deal was already fully subscribed.  Each tranche had $1.3
billion to $1.4 billion in orders.  The orders have now been
closed since the bank has decided not to increase the size of
the offering.

Chohung has already met investors in Hong Kong and Singapore,
and presentations continue in London Friday. The bank was due to
meet U.S. investors Monday and Tuesday.

Chohung is looking to sell $200 million in Upper Tier 2 bonds
and $200 million in Lower Tier 2 bonds, which carries a 10-year
maturity with a call after five years.

Guidance for the former has been set at 110-115 basis points
over the London Interbank Offered Rate and for the latter at 95-
100 basis points over Libor. The levels are likely to be cut to
the 110 basis-point area and the 95 basis-point area,
respectively, bankers said.

Pricing is now expected Monday or Tuesday.

The proceeds of the bond issuance will be used to refinance the
bank's 10-year subordinated bonds whose five-year call date
falls April 1.


DAEWOO HEAVY: Union Would Object if Doosan Heavy Bid Wins
---------------------------------------------------------
Unionized workers of Daewoo Heavy Industries & Machinery Ltd.
expressed their objection to Doosan Heavy Industries Co. by
saying they will resort to extreme measures if Daewoo would pick
the latter as the preferred bidder, according to Asia Pulse,
citing Yonhap News.

According to sources close to the issue, the workers did not
clearly state what Company they are referring to, but since
Doosan leads the race, then it is most likely the one aimed by
the union.

"The leader of the sale should put a priority on the buyer's
ability to guarantee job security, management transparency and
productive management-labor relations, rather than the sale
price," said a unionized worker at Daewoo Heavy, the country's
largest manufacturer of defense and construction equipment,
requesting anonymity.

"If the Company, which is deemed to have problems, is chosen to
take over the Company, we will do everything within our power to
stop the sale," he added.

Daewoo Heavy union workers dislike Doosan after the incident
that happened to employees of Korea Heavy Industries in 2000.
After Doosan acquired Korea Heavy, it then conducted a mass
layoff.

The South Korean government plans to sell its entire 58 percent
stake in Daewoo Heavy, to recover public funds injected into the
Company in 1999.

RCE CAPITAL: Issues Reorganization Scheme Update
------------------------------------------------
The Board of Directors of RCE Capital Berhad is undertaking an
internal reorganization and amalgamation scheme in order to
streamline its business operations, which inter alia consist of
the following salient arrangements:

a) E-Drama Sdn. Bhd. (E-Drama), the wholly-owned subsidiary of
RCE, has on 21 October 2004 entered into a Share Sale Agreement
(SSA) with the shareholders of RCE Marketing Sdn. Bhd. (RCEM), a
87.5% owned subsidiary of RCE, to acquire the entire issued and
paid-up capital of RCEM comprising 8,000,000 ordinary shares of
RM1.00 each and 38,780,000 Redeemable Convertible Non-Cumulative
Preference Shares of RM1.00 each (RCNC Preference Shares)
(collectively referred to as "the Proposed Acquisition).

b) The total purchase consideration for the Proposed Acquisition
of RM 63,165,000 shall be satisfied via the exchange of new

METRO PACIFIC: Bourse Starts Probe
----------------------------------
The Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE) has started its
investigation of stock transactions by Metro Pacific Corporation
over disclosure concerns of stockbrokers, the Philippine Daily
Inquirer reports.

PSE President Francis Lim said some brokers had spoken to him
about heavy selling of Metro Pacific shares before First Pacific
disclosed last week that it was selling five percent of its
stake in Metro Pacific.

First Pacific said it was raising funds for Metro Pacific's
troubled inter-island shipping unit Negros Navigation Co.
(Nenaco).

PSE President Francis Lim said an investigative committee would
carefully look into figures and data from transactions allegedly
tainted by insider trading and stock price manipulation.

Only after all records are reviewed will PSE take any necessary
action.

METRO PACIFIC: Clarifies FirstPac Stake Sale News Report
--------------------------------------------------------
This is in reference to the news article entitled "SEC clears
Metro Pac on sale of First Pacific stake" published in the
October 22, 2004 issue of The Philippine Star (Internet
Edition).

The article reported that "(a)s far as the Securities and
Exchange Commission (SEC) is concerned, Metro Pacific Corp.
(MPC) has complied with the disclosure rules pertaining to the
divestment by its Hong Kong-based parent First Pacific Co. Ltd.
of a five-percent stake in the local firm."

Metro Pacific Corporation (MP"), in its letter to the Philippine
Stock Exchange dated October 22, 2004, stated that:

As of this date Metro Pacific Corporation (Metro Pacific) has
yet to receive any formal notice from either the Securities or
(sic) Exchange Commission (SEC) or the Philippine Stock Exchange
(PSE) regarding any investigation into sales of Metro Pacific
stock.

MPC is confident however, that the Company has fully adhered to
and exceeded, the standards for disclosure as required by the
regulatory agencies. Metro Pacific consistently seeks to work
closely with regulatory authorities to ensure that all
disclosure requirements are carefully adhered to and that Metro
Pacific stockholders and the investing public are properly
informed of all material developments.

MPC regard the negative allegations regarding the recent sale of
Metro Pacific shares of stock as unwarranted and without basis
for complaint. We are confident of the sanctity of our
transactions and believe that the regulatory authorities will
concur with this opinion."

NATIONAL POWER: Narrowly Averts Power Shortage in Luzon

The National Power Corporation (Napocor) has narrowly averted a
power shortage in Luzon with the arrival of a shipment of coal
for its Sual plant on October 20, Yehey Finance reports, citing
Energy Undersecretary Cyril C. del Callar.

Mr. Callar also said that the Manila Electric Co. and Quezon
Power Philippines Ltd Co. have agreed to supply the coal needed
by the Napocor plant.

shipment originally meant for QPPL to the 1,200-MW coal-fired
Sual power plant would prevent further power shortages in the
Luzon grid.

Psalm is working on an accelerated privatization process with
about 70 percent of Napocor's total assets in Luzon and the

The energy department has identified the 10 most prospective
geothermal fields open for bidding in Manito-Kayabon and Rangas-
Tanawon in Sorsogon; Biliran in Eastern Visayas; Amacan in North
Davao; Dauin, Negros Occidental; Natib, Bataan; Mabini,
Batangas; Montelago, Mindoro Oriental; Kabalian in Leyte; and

NAKORNTHAI STRIP: Reports Business Reorganization Progress
----------------------------------------------------------
The Stock Exchange of Thailand determined that the companies
categorized in the Rehabco Section have to report on the
progress of financial problem solving and business
rehabilitation once every six months, to enable the SET to
consider and review the financial status of the listed companies
in the said section.

Nakornthai Strip Mill Public Company Limited thus complies with
such requirement by preparing the report on the progress of its
financial problem solving and operational results, as well as
the business rehabilitation as already undertaken by the
Company, in accordance with the latest letter dated April 20,
2004, of Maharaj Planner Company Limited, as the Plan
Administrator.

The Plan Administrator reports the development of the
implementation of the Business Reorganization Plan of the
Company.

(10 Payment under the Plan

After the occurrence of the Effective Date (which was October
31, 2003), the Plan Administrator arranged for the Company to
make the payment to the Company's creditors as provided in the
Plan.  For the Noteholder creditors, since the Plan
Administrator is still in the process of identifying the actual
beneficiary Noteholder creditors, the payment to them are yet to
be made.

However, the Plan Administrator has reserved the funds for
payment in the bank account maintained with Bangkok Bank Public
Co., Ltd., account No 135-2-25475-7 in order to facilitate
payment to the actual beneficiary Noteholder creditors when
identified.

(2) Return of Security

The Plan Clauses 4.4 (k) and 7.9 provide for appointing the new
facility and security agent to replace Chase Manhattan Bank.
The Plan Administrator appointed ABN Amro Bank N. V., to be the
new facility and security agent.

The Plan Administrator pursued Chase Manhattan Bank to release
the security, property, funds or other assets in its custody
pursuant to the Security Sharing Agreement to ABN Amro Bank N.
V.  On May 19, 2004, Chase Manhattan Bank released the security
and delivery it to ABN Amro Bank N. V.  Such security is listed
in the letter of delivery dated May 19, 2004.   Such delivery
does not prejudice any right of the Company if the delivered
security is not completed.

(3) Removal of Second Land Mortgage

In respect of the debt-to-equity conversion for Tranche C Notes,
on October 31, 2003, as provided in the Plan Clause 6.2, the
second land mortgage for Tranche C Notes with Chase Manhattan
Bank, the security agent, being the mortgagee, was extinguished.

However, Chase Manhattan Bank did not remove the second land
mortgage.  The Plan Administrator therefore filed a request to
the court to order Chase Manhattan Bank remove the second land
mortgage.  The court issued the order on May 20, 2004, to Chase
Manhattan Bank to remove the second land mortgage.  On June 1,
2004, the Company registered the court's order with the Land
Office, Sriracha Branch, to remove the second land mortgage.

(4) Identification of Actual Beneficiary Noteholder Creditors
for Delivery of Shares Issued in connection with Debt-To-Equity
Conversion

In respect of the debt-to-equity conversion for the Noteholder
creditors, on October 31, 2003, since the Plan Administrator was
yet to identify the actual beneficiary Noteholders and no final
orders of the Official Receiver or the court on their claims
were rendered, the Plan Administrator processed the debt-to-
equity conversion by issuing the Company shares in the name of
the Plan Administrator for its custody and delivery to the
actual beneficiary Noteholders.

At present the Plan Administrator is in the process of
implementation of the delivery of the shares to the actual
beneficiary Noteholders by appointing the information agent to
contact Depository Trust Company of USA and custodians of the
representing the actual beneficiary Noteholders.  This is to
obtain the information of the actual beneficiary Noteholders and
coordination for delivery of the shares to them.

Presently, the information agent is in the process of gathering
information and contacting the custodians of the actual
beneficiary Noteholders.  Upon completion of the identification
of the actual beneficiary Noteholders, the Plan Administrator
will report to the SET on the progress of the distribution of
shares.

Pleased be informed accordingly and distribute the information
to the general public.

Sincerely yours,

Conversion ratio and conversion price: One unit of the
convertible debenture may be converted into newly issued shares
at the conversion price for each new ordinary share of 115
percent of the weighted average closing price of the Company's
share for 30 consecutive trading days in the SET prior to the
offer for sale of the convertible debentures but not less than
THB2.00 per share.

Nevertheless, one unit of the convertible debenture will be
converted into the new ordinary shares in a number equal to

trading days (Baht) divided by total trading volume for 30
trading days (shares).
