AUSTRALIAN FOODS: Placed in Receivership
----------------------------------------
West Australian grain business Australian Foods Company has been
placed in receivership, according to ABC Rural News.

The National Agricultural Commodities Marketing Association has
already issued a statement confirming the news.

South Australian Farmers Federation (SAFF) president John Lush
said the recent development has left a number of growers unpaid,
warning growers to trade with reputable companies.

"We've had quite a few on our books that have been complaining
about slow payment.

"A lot of them have been paid in the last 10 or 12 months, but I
know there's some outstanding ones as well.

"I'm not sure how many, but I know there are some; and I know
one of them is about $30,000 that's been owing for some time; so
yeah, those people would be very disappointed to hear this
news."

ADES WATERS: JSX Fines Management
---------------------------------
The Jakarta Stock Exchange (JSX) finally imposed a fine on PT
Ades Waters Indonesia Tbk (ADES) management, as it was unable to
provide an explanation regarding the discrepancy between
production and sales figures as it previously announced,
Indoexchange relates.

JSX President Director Erry Firmansyah confirmed the bourse has
issued a notice and imposed a penalty upon ADES' management.

Mr. Erry explained ADES management was only subjected to notice
and fine sanctions since they are still new and have yet to
understand regulations of the equity market and JSX. He added
that the management had earlier issued a statement on the
difference found in the Company's figures.

According to Mr. Erry, the bourse has suspended trading of ADES
shares following the information disclosure.

"The revocation of suspension over trading of ADES shares will
soon be implemented as soon as the management has repaid the
charged fine," he said.

ADES' September 2004 financial report revealed that the Company
gained net sales of IDR92.12 billion, lower than the IDR130.27
billion achieved year-on-year. However, operating expenses in
2004 dropped to IDR54.84 billion from IDR58.36 billion in the
same period last year.

As of September 2004, the Company has suffered a net loss of
IDR31.46 billion, which surged almost 300 percent from IDR8.35
billion year-on-year.


MERPATI NUSANTARA: Ready to Dispose Of Assets for Survival

serious in the planned assets disposal, saying the divestment
was one of the options to support the Company's goal to improve
its financial balance.

The firm's shareholders had called for a business plan after the
parliament approved the program to survive through
privatization, the first phase of which will include an IDR600
billion shares issuance.

"Consequently, since selling assets is necessary, we are ready
to do it. We are also ready to sell and lease back our
aircraft," Mr. Pujiyono said.

He, however, refused to divulge when the plan will be carried
out and how much money the assets sale could generate.

In the past seven years, Merpati suffered a negative equity,
burdened with IDR1.3 trillion worth of liabilities and assets
standing at only IDR800 billion.

ALL NIPPON: Consolidated Net Profit Soars 45.3%
----------------------------------------------
The All Nippon Airways (ANA) Group on Friday announced its
financial results for the first six months of fiscal 2004 (April
1 - September 30), posting a consolidated net profit of JPY29.8
billion, up JPY9.3 billion or 45.3% compared with the same
period last year, and marking a fifth successive quarter of
profitable operations.

Revenue for the period was JPY659.4 billion, operating profit
JPY59.7 billion and recurring profit JPY53.1 billion. These
figures show a significant year-on-year improvement of JPY51.1
billion, JPY45.3 billion and JPY38.7 billion, respectively.

The ANA Group is comprised of more than 100 air transportation,
travel-related and other businesses. On a consolidated air
transportation segment basis, a revenue of JPY546.5 billion and
an operating profit of JPY54.1 billion were posted for the six-
month period.

The five airlines within ANA Group, comprising of ANA (All
Nippon Airways), ANK (Air Nippon), AJX (Air Japan), A-Net (Air
Nippon Network), ADK (Air Hokkaido), carried 24.5 million
passengers over 29.2 billion Revenue Passenger Kilometers (RPK),
which breaks down into 22.5 million domestic and 2 million
international passengers over 19.6 billion RPKs and 9.6 billion
RPKs respectively.

The entire network performed well, with Europe and North America
routes producing particularly strong results, as evidenced by an
average load factor in excess of 80%. Leisure travel demand to
China returned to pre-SARS levels from the summer; business
demand had rebounded strongly at the end of the crisis last
year. Overall, a 36.6% increase in passenger numbers and a
JPY24.4 billion increase in revenue were reported for Chinese
routes compared with the previous year.

Domestically, passenger numbers were down 1.3% as ANA cut the
number of available seats by 4.7%; however, revenues rose by 2.5
% or JPY8.3 billion yen year-on-year. Among other factors, this
can largely be attributed to the introduction of the FAM (Fleet
Assignment Model) system, which matches aircraft-size to
passenger demand, and also to the Passenger Revenue Optimization
System (PROS), which assigns fares per seat according to demand.

Despite revenue and passenger growth, rising oil prices will
significantly increase ANA's operating costs over the remainder
of the financial year. Therefore no change will be made to the
previously announced consolidated forecast for fiscal 2004 of a
net profit of JPY14 billion, on revenue of JPY1.26 trillion and
a recurring profit of JPY29.0 billion.

HITACHI LIMITED: Seals Joint Venture with Toshiba, Matsushita
-------------------------------------------------------------
Hitachi, Ltd., Toshiba Corporation, Matsushita Electric
Industrial Co. Ltd., and wholly owned Hitachi subsidiary Hitachi
Displays Ltd. on Friday officially concluded a joint venture
agreement to establish a Company to manufacture and sell LCD
panels for flat panel TVs. This agreement follows a basic
agreement signed on August 31 this year.

The joint venture, to be called IPS Alpha Technology, Ltd. (IPS
Alpha), is scheduled to commence operations on January 1, 2005.
President of Hitachi Displays, Mr. Fumiaki Yonai, will serve
concurrently as president of IPS Alpha.

IPS Alpha will manufacture LCD panels using Hitachi Displays'
world-leading IPS mode system technology. Close collaboration
with IPS Alpha is expected to achieve synergies in the
production of finished products at Hitachi, Toshiba and
Matsushita, allowing them to achieve LCD TVs that are even more
competitive in terms of performance and price.

IPS Mode System Technology

In-Plane-Switching (IPS) mode system is a type of TFT LCD
display technology. IPS is distinguished by a wide 170-degree
viewing angle, both horizontally and vertically, along with
minimal gray-scale inversion and viewing-angle dependency,
reproducing lifelike images, which is made possible because the
liquid crystal molecules can rotate while remaining parallel to
the substrate when a voltage is applied, yielding perfect
orientation of the crystals.

The advanced super (AS)-IPS mode system for use in televisions,
large-screen monitors and other applications achieves an
approximate 30% improvement in the aperture ratio over
conventional IPS technology. Furthermore, AS-IPS realizes a
higher level of brightness and reproduces colors more
realistically thanks to high-purity color filters and other
proprietary technologies.

Outline of IPS Alpha
(1) Company name: IPS Alpha Technology, Ltd.
(2) President: Fumiaki Yonai
(3) Commencement of operations: January 1, 2005

JAPAN TOBACCO: Sees Profits After Last Year's Loss
--------------------------------------------------
Japan Tobacco Incorporated posted a record high net and pretax
profits on all-time high sales during the first half of the
current fiscal year ending September 30, Kyodo News reports.

The improved figures, which offset last year's huge losses, are
due mainly to strong tobacco sales overseas.

The group saw its net profit climbed to JPY75.05 billion from
last year's JPY49.23 billion loss. Pre-tax profit came to
JPY137.83 billion, up 15.9 percent from the previous year, on
sales that rose 2.2 percent to JPY2,369.26 billion.

According to the Company, the year-before loss resulted from an
extraordinary loss of JPY185 billion due to an accounting policy
change regarding a pension program.

Per-share net profit in the current year's first half reached
JPY38,406.74 against a year-before loss of JPY24,614.34.

With the upward trend in domestic and overseas sales, Japan
Tobacco revised upward its forecast for the full year to next
March 31.

It now expects to post JPY79 billion in group net profit against
the previous year's loss of JPY7.6 billion. Pretax profit is
projected to increase 18.4 percent to JPY253 billion on sales of
JPY4,670 billion, up 1.0 percent.

JT kept interim dividend payments for the first half unchanged
from a year earlier at JPY5,000 per share.

KOBE STEEL: JCR Assigns Preliminary A to Shelf Registration
-----------------------------------------------------------
The Japan Credit Rating Agency Limited (JCR) has assigned a
preliminary A rating to the shelf registration of Kobe Steel
Limited.

Shelf Registration    Maximum         Valid
                      JPY200 billion  two years effective
                                      from June 24, 2004

Rationale:

JCR announced the upgrade of the long-term rating for Kobe Steel
from A- to A on October 4, 2004. There have been no significant
changes in the performance and the financial structure of the
Company that affect the rating since then.

The proceeds from sales of bonds to be issued under the shelf
registration will be used for repayment of the borrowings,
redemption of bonds, capital spending and operation fund. Kobe
Steel plans to improve the financial structure continually.

KYOSEI RENTEMU: JCR Affirms BBB- on Senior Debts
------------------------------------------------
The Japan Credit Rating Agency Limited (JCR) has affirmed the
BBB- rating on senior debts of Kyosei Rentemu Co., Ltd.

Rationale:

Kyosei Rentemu is a major construction machinery rental firm,
operating primarily in Hokkaido. Kyosei Rentemu has been
strengthening utilization of its own assets to be rent, which is
highly profitable, and reducing the costs. These efforts are now
paying off.

However, Kyosei Rentemu failed to make a full-fledged
improvement in the performance. There is little concern about
deterioration in the financial structure due to purchase of
leasing assets because it screens out low-operation machinery,
leasing from other in such a case, to increase asset
utilization.

It is unlikely that business environment will improve. The
business environment puts downward pressure on the cash flow
generation capability.

JCR considers that Kyosei Rentemu should further cut back the
debt in addition to increasing the revenue and raising
utilization of the leasing assets by cultivating new clients in
order to keep the debt service capability.

TOSHIBA CORPORATION: Returns to Profitability
--------------------------------------------
Toshiba Corporation on Friday announced its consolidated and
non-consolidated results for the first half (April-September) of
fiscal year (FY) 2004.

Overview of Consolidated and Non-consolidated Results for First
Half of FY 2004

The Japanese economy continued to move toward recovery in the
first half of FY2004, despite continuing concerns about
unemployment, as consumer spending edged upward and export and
capital expenditure increased. Overseas, the US economy
continued to expand, as did China and other Asian economies,
while Europe saw slow recovery. In these circumstances,
Toshiba's consolidated and non-consolidated business result for
the first half of FY2004 were as follow:

Consolidated Results

Consolidated sales were JPY2,781.8 billion (US$25,061 million),
an increase of JPY 173.5 billion from the same period of the
previous year.

Consolidated operating income (loss) improved by JPY62.7 billion
from the same period a year ago to JPY50.7 billion (US$457
million). Electronic Devices saw operating income rise and
Digital Products, Social Infrastructure and Home Appliances
reported improved operating income (loss) from the same period a
year ago.

Income (loss) before income taxes, minority interest and equity
in earnings of affiliates rose by JPY39.1 billion from the year-
earlier period to JPY21.5 billion (US$193 million). Net income
(loss) advanced by JPY40.6 billion from the same period of the
previous year to JPY8.4 billion (US$75 million).

Non-consolidated Results

Non-consolidated sales declined by JPY127.6 billion from the
same period of the previous year to JPY1,332.0 billion
(US$12,000 million). This figure reflects the impact of
businesses transferred from the parent Company to group
companies. If those businesses were included, non-consolidated
net sales would increase by 9%. Recurring profit (loss) improved
by JPY29.2 billion from the year-earlier period to JPY15.2
billion (US$137 million). Net income (loss) was JPY2.3 billion
(US$20 million), an increase by JPY4.8 billion from a year
earlier period.

TOSHIBA CORPORATION: Reveals Third-Party Scheme for Notebook PCs
----------------------------------------------------------------
Toshiba Corporation has announced in a press release that it has
identified a potential issue relating to memory module
components ("the components") which are incorporated into
specific models of Toshiba notebook PCs.

The components, under certain conditions and when used in
combination with certain other components, might potentially
cause blue screens or intermittent PC lockups, or undetected
memory data corruption, though the possibility of any of these
events occurring is extremely low.

The components in question are not manufactured by Toshiba; they
were supplied by third parties.

Toshiba takes a consumer-oriented approach to its PC business
and is determined to minimize any possible impact that customers
may experience from this issue. Accordingly, the Company is
voluntarily initiating an exchange program, at no cost to
customers, for those components that are contained in certain
Toshiba notebook PCs. A full list of PCs that may potentially
contain the components is at the end of this announcement; not
all of these PCs contain the subject components. The program
will run worldwide from November 1, 2004 until April 30, 2005.
Toshiba no longer uses the subject components in its notebook
PCs currently in production.

Customers who own any of the notebook PCs listed below can
download a Toshiba-developed utility that analyzes their PC's
system to determine whether or not it contains the subject
components. The utility can be downloaded from Toshiba's website
or from the Toshiba websites serving each region. Alternatively,
customers can also receive a copy of the utility on CD media by
calling their local Toshiba customer service center. If the
utility identifies the component as being contained in the
customer's PC, it provides the customer with all the information
required to receive a free replacement component.

For more details, please see the Toshiba America Information
Systems, Inc. web posting at www.toshibadirect.com/CEP or call
our customer service representatives at 1-866-544-1325.

On October 29, 2004, the board of directors of Kookmin Bank
approved and ratified granting of stock options to Mr. Chung Won
Kang who was nominated as the President & CEO of Kookmin Bank by
the board of directors and approved by extraordinary
shareholders' meeting held on October 29, 2004.

Pursuant to Article 13 of the Articles of Incorporation, the
board of directors' resolution of granting stock options is
subject to the approval and ratification at the first-coming
shareholders' meeting after the date of grant.

The purpose of the grant is to motivate the grantee toward
accomplishing business targets and responsible management, as
his performance will be indexed to the exercisable number of
options. The class of stock to be granted is Kookmin Bank's
registered common share.

(1) Grant Date: November 1, 2004

(2) Number of Stock Options: 700,000 shares

500,000 stock options: Linked to ROE of 25 percent and BIS Ratio
of 12 percent 1

The evaluation of the grantee's performance will be lined to the
business targets of ROE of 25 percent and BIS Capital Adequacy
Ratio of 12 percent, weighted 60 percent and 40 percent
respectively.  Accordingly, the exercisable number of options
will be indexed to the grantee's accomplishment of the business
targets at the end of the quarter right before the exercise
period begins (i.e. at the end of third quarter in 2007). If ROE
and BIS Ratio fall below 10 percent, the stock options granted
shall not be exercisable.  In the event of the grantee's early
retirement, ROE and BIS Ratio at the end of the quarter
immediately prior to the retirement shall be applied.

NATIONAL POWER: November Bills To Bear New Generation Rates
-----------------------------------------------------------
The recent increase in the rate of the National Power
Corporation (Napocor), which was approved last September, will
take effect in the bills of its customers in November, reports
the Philippine star.

The Manila Electric Co. (Meralco) Vice President For Corporate
Communications assured its customers that they would not feel
the full impact of the Php1.23 per kWh increase in the Luzon
grid.

Aside from Napocor, Meralco sources its power supply from other
independent power producers (IPPs).

At present, Meralco gets about 50 to 60 percent of its power
supply requirement from its IPPs namely:  Quezon Power
Philippines Ltd., Duracom Power, First Gas Power Corp.'s Sta.
Rita and San Lorenzo natural gas-fired power plants.

The electricity rates will vary from each grid. For Luzon, 48
percent or Php1.23 per kWh; Visayas by 7.8 percent or 22.02
centavos; Mindanao by 15 percent or 26.65 centavos.

At present, the existing rates of Napocor for the entire
Philippines is Php2.44 per kWh; Luzon Php2.5736; Visayas,
Php2.8172; and Mindanao Php1.8032.

NATIONAL POWER: IFC Offers Financing For Napocor Assets
-------------------------------------------------------
The International Finance Corporation (IFC) said they could
offer financing needs for the privatized assets of the National
Power Corporation and its green-field power projects to meet
future power demand of the Philippines, according to the Manila
Bulletin.

IFC Executive Vice President and Concurrent World Bank Managing
Director Peter L. Woicke said the loan maturity that power
sector investors could avail of from IFC could range from 15 to
23 years as compared to the shorter terms of commercial loans,
which are normally just from 8 to 10 years.

"We usually provide long-term financing.but of course, this is
in consideration of the fiscal deficit limitations in this
country," Mr. Woicke said.

WEE POH: Declares Adjournment Of AGM
------------------------------------
The Board of Directors of Wee Poh Holding Limited announced that
its Ninth Annual General Meeting held on 29 October 20004, 10 am
at Carlton Hotel, Empress Room, Level 2, 76 Bras Basah Road,
Singapore 189558 was adjourned by the Chairman of the Board
acting as Chairman of the AGM, shortly after the AGM was called
into order.

None of the business that was scheduled to be conducted at the
AGM was carried out before the adjournment.

As related by the Chairman at the AGM before the adjournment, on
the night of 28 October 2004 during a routine pre-AGM audit and
inspection of shareholders' proxy forms, the Company Secretary
and Deloitte & Touche, Company's auditors, discovered a proxy
form representing some twenty million shares that contains what
appears to be purposeful irregularities. The Company has filed a
police report concerning the irregularities.

In light of this discovery, the Chairman has adjourned the AGM
pending a systematic examination of all proxy forms received to
ensure their correctness and legality. The Board will give
notice of the date, time and place when the AGM will be
reconvened as soon as the irregularities discovered are fully
investigated and the legality of the proxy forms received by the
Company is verified.

KRUNG THAI: Picks Apisak Tantivorawong as New President
-------------------------------------------------------
Apisak Tantivorawong has been chosen as Krung Thai Bank Public
Company Limited's new president, according to Reuters.

The official appointment of Mr. Apisak would be in two weeks
time, Somkiat Sangsurane, the bank's Secretary to the board of
directors said.

"Mr. Apisak is qualified for the job, and we don't need to have
asked the central bank to reconsider this," Mr. Somkiat said.

Apisak, 50, is a University of Tennessee graduate and is the
head of state-owned Siam City Bank.

Mr. Apisak was appointed as Krung Thai's new president after the
central bank blocked the reappointment of Viroj Nualkhair, the
bank's incumbent president saying he was not qualified.

During Mr. Viroj's term Krung Thai's non-performing loans in the
quarter to June jumped to more than $1 billion, urging the
central bank to disqualify him for a second term.

THAI PETROCHEMICAL: Court's Decision Likely to be Delayed
---------------------------------------------------------
A decision on Thai Petrochemical Industry Public Company
Limited's revised restructuring plan will unlikely reach the
target date, reports Business Day, citing Thanong Bidaya, a
member of the plan administrator team.

Mr. Thanong believes that those who oppose the plan would submit
their objection letter to the court, thus the investigation of
the case's related facts would delay the court's ruling on the
revised plan.

"If it does happen, we (TPI's plan administrator team) will have
to provide an explanation on the disputed case to the court,"
Mr. Thanong told reporters.

Since the plan's timeframe is due to expire on December 31, Mr.
Thanong prefers the plan to be finalized by the end of this
year.  Mr. Thanong added that TPI's plan, already approved by
the firm's creditors, also covers the extension of its
completion timeframe by another year to the end of 2005.

TUNTEX THAILAND: Details Results of Operations
----------------------------------------------
Tuntex Thailand Public Company Limited issued to the Stock
Exchange of Thailand the analysis of the Company's financial
condition and results of operations.

(1) TTC's financial performance for the six-month periods ended
June 30, 2004 compared with that of the same period last year
can be analyzed as:

(1.1) Sales Revenue

Sales revenue for the six-month periods ended Jun 30, 2004
increased 26 percent or THB959 million from the same period of
2003 due to the increase in price of the products as well as
sales volume.

(1.2) Profit Margin

Gross profit margin for the first six-month of 2004 rose by 182
percent or THB40 million from the same period last year due to
an increase in polyester prices, attributed from the rise in
major raw material prices.

(1.3) Net Profit Margin

At the end of June 30, 2004, the Company reported net loss of
THB722.21 million, which comprised of THB1,069.04 loss from
operations and THB346.83 million gain from subsidiaries and
associates.  When compared with the loss of the same period of
last year, net loss increased by 5 percent or THB33.27 million,
which was mainly as a result of the Company's financial
restructuring expense and the loss in exchange rate.

(2) Financial conditions as of June 30, 2004 as compared with
that of December 31, 2003

(2.1) Total assets as of June 30, 2004 rose 4 percent or
THB599.56 million from that of December 31, 2003 due to an
increase in current assets, especially in the account
receivable, inventory and refundable tax items, which can be
related to an increase in sales volume, raw material prices and
export volume respectively.

(2.2) Total debts as of June 30, 2004 increased 7.78 percent or
THB1.385.24 million from that of December 31, 2003 due to an
increase in short-term loans, trade credits, and accrued
interest expense, attributable to an increase in short-term loan
from a bank obtained early in the year, an increase in raw
material price and volume, and an automatic suspension of loan
interest payable during restructuring process.

(2.3) Equities as of June 30, 2004 decreased 40.9 percent or
THB825.67 million from that of December 31, 2003 mainly as a
result of operation loss and a loss in foreign exchange.

(2.4) Financial Ratio

Comparison of financial ratio between June 30, 2004 and December
31, 2003:

                         Jun30/04            Dec31/03
