GRIBBLES GROUP: Urges Investors to Accept Healthscope Bid
---------------------------------------------------------
Gribbles Group directors have advised shareholders to accept a
takeover offer of 63 cents per share from hospital operator
Healthscope because a higher offer is unlikely, reports the
Sydney Morning Herald.

The embattled pathology Company is left with no choice but to
accept the Healthscope bid, which values Gribbles at AU$284.6
million.

In a statement sent to investors, Gribbles directors said the
Company had been seeking potential buyers for a couple of months
and had talks with a number of interested parties.

"Based on that process, the directors are confident that
potential acquirers of a substantial interest in Gribbles have
had full and adequate opportunity to put forward a proposal,"
the directors said.

They said they were unaware of any party intending to make a bid
higher than the Healthscope offer.

"Given the competitive sale process undertaken, the directors
consider that the prospect of an alternative superior offer is
low," they said.

Healthscope earlier raised its bid after Gribble's founder and
major shareholder Wallace Cameron, who owns a 43 percent stake
in the Company through EC Medical Investments Limited, vowed to
support an offer at 63 cents.

The Gribbles directors said the offer price was at a substantial
premium over the Gribbles share price over the past 12 months.

Healthscope's offer expires on 29 December.

As of June 30, Gribbles' debt stood at AU$142 million, which is
expected to rise about AU$158 million next month.

JAMES HARDIE: States Back New Laws
----------------------------------
A proposed New South Wales legislation to force James Hardie
Industries to compensate asbestos victims obtained the unanimous
support of state governments, according to ABC News.

The decision came after a meeting of attorneys-general in New
Zealand.

The NSW government has been drafting new laws to entitle
asbestos victims to claim compensation from James Hardie's
parent Company. The laws will unwind the 2001 restructure
undertaken when James Hardie's parent Company relocated to the
Netherlands.

According to NSW Attorney-General Bob Debus, the legislation NSW
proposes has to be under Australia's corporate law scheme
approved by other jurisdictions.

The states also want the Corporations Act amended to stop all
companies adopting the strategy used by James Hardie to shift
liability.

MAYNE GROUP: Renegotiates AMFAC Sale Deal with Cosmos
-----------------------------------------------------
Cosmos Limited, the leading Australian provider of electronic
transaction services and retail pharmacy data systems, announced
on the Australian Stock Exchange it had reached agreement with
Mayne Group member Faulding Healthcare Pty Ltd to revise payment
terms for its purchase of the AMFAC business and the associated
provision of services by Faulding Healthcare's subsidiary
healhlinks.net.

Cosmos fully-owned subsidiary Dynsol Pty Limited purchased AMFAC
from Faulding Healtcare in January 2003 and AMFAC has since
became a core part of the Cosmos Retail technology division, the
market leader in the pharmacy point of sale and dispensing
applications sector. Cosmos retail solutions are currently used
in approximately 60% of pharmacies across Australian.

The purchase of AMFAC was funded by a loan from Faulding
Healthcare, payable in installments over three years. Prior to
revising the funding agreement, the total amount owed by Cosmos
to Faulding Healthcare was AU$3.1 million, of which AU$2.3
million was current and the remaining UA$0.8 million payable
before January 2006.

Under the revised agreement, Cosmos will pay Faulding Healthcare
AU$1,803,707 in cash, AU$0.5 million immediately, AU$0.5 million
on November 30, 2004 AU$269,500 in January 2005 and a further
AU$534,207 in January 2006.

In addition, but subject to shareholder approval, Cosmos will
issue to Mayne approximately 46.3 million ordinary shares of
AU$0.029 per share free of any escrow restrictions.

BANK DANAMON: Government Reaps IDR1.7 Trillion from Stake Sale
--------------------------------------------------------------
The sale of a 10-percent stake in PT Bank Danamon conducted
Thursday has generated IDR1.7 trillion (US$187 million) for the
state, according to The Jakarta Post.

The Asset Management Company (PPA), which arranged the
divestment, had sold 490.87 million Danamon shares at IDR3,550
per share, slightly below Wednesday's IDR3,575 closing price.

PPA Vice President Director, Raden Pardede, said about 34 local
and foreign companies bought the shares, which are 2.6 times
oversubscribed.

The sale, which was part of a fund-raising program to help
finance the state budget deficit, left the government with a
10.5-percent stake in Bank Danamon.

Meanwhile, the government had earlier announced its plan to
dispose of its minority stakes in PT Bank Central Asia, PT Bank
Internasional Indonesia, PT Ban Niaga and PT Bank Permata later
this year.

The government owns a 6.5-percent stake in Bank Central Asia,
20.71 percent in Bank Internasional, and 20.55 percent in Bank
Niaga. It now holds only 20 percent in Bank Permata after it
sold its 51-percent stake in the bank recently to U.K.-based
lender Standard Chartered PLC and consortium partner PT Astra
International.

PPA, which manages the state assets, would leave it to the
government whether it would pursue initial plans to divest more
shares in several banks this year.

BANK PERMATA: Standchart Team Cleared to Buy Stake
--------------------------------------------------
The Central Bank on Thursday gave a Standard Chartered-led
consortium formal clearance to acquire a 51-percent stake in PT
Bank Permata Tbk, Reuters reports.

The Standard Chartered-Astra International team, who won the bid
for Permata early last month, passed the "fit and proper test".
The said test, conducted by Bank Indonesia (the central bank),
was just a formality when bank stakes are sold to foreign
companies.

The deal, which will give Standchart a foothold in the country
after two failed attempts, is set for completion this month.

The IDR2.77 trillion (US$304 million) offered by the consortium
for the 51-percent stake was 10 percent higher than what the
state had expected.

Proceeds from the sale will be used to help narrow the country's
widening budget deficit.

Permata, which has US$3.2 billion in assets, was created from a
merger of five banks taken over by the government in the wake of
the late 1990s Asian economic crisis.

BANK RAKYAT: Government to Reshuffle Management
-----------------------------------------------
The state is considering replacing the top management of state-
owned Bank Rakyat Indonesia (BRI) and Bank Tabungan Negara (BTN)
to help bolster the banks' performance, relates The Jakarta
Post.

A deputy at the Minister for State Enterprises Office, Suad
Husnan, confirmed the management changes at the two companies
would be implemented immediately.

"The tenure of the management of BRI and BTN will expire next
year, as they have served for four years. We need to rejuvenate
the banks by putting in new people," Mr. Suad said.

According to Mr. Suad, the reshuffle will be conducted at the
annual shareholders meeting on February or March next year
following completion of the banks' 2004 audited financial
reports.

Presently, BRI is headed by President Director Rudjito, who has
been successful in launching the bank's initial public offering
(IPO) last year. But his success has been dimmed by several
financial fiascos and fraud conducted by bank officials.

Incumbent BTN President Director Kodradi, on the other hand, has
been struggling to improve BTN's efficiency.

Meanwhile, Mr. Suad said there were no plans for a management
reshuffle in other state banks such as Bank Negara Indonesia and
Bank Mandiri, as the management of the two banks had been
appointed just recently.

DAIEI INCORPORATED: IRCJ Suspects Secret Deal with Colony Over
--------------------------------------------------------------
The state-backed Industrial Revitalization Corporation of Japan
(IRCJ) suspects that Daiei Incorporated may have a secret deal
with a U.S. investment fund over the sale of the Daiei Hawks
baseball club, says Kyodo News.

The IRCJ has started an investigation into an alleged secret
agreement between the rehabilitating retailer and Colony Capital
LLC, which owns the Fukuoka Dome and the rights to hold the
Hawks' games.

Sources speculate Daiei and Colony have already agreed on the
price of the ball club and terms of the sale.

Daiei had initially insisted to run the Fukuoka-based Hawks on
its own but has recently decided to sell its majority
shareholding to Softbank Corporation, which had earlier
expressed a desire to acquire the baseball team. The proposed
sale would have lowered Daiei's 98 percent stake to 20 percent.

However, the IRCJ is concerned Daiei may not benefit from the
Hawks ownership unless it retains a stake of more than 50
percent in the ball club.

JAPAN AIRLINES: 2Q Profit May Double on Overseas Demand
-------------------------------------------------------
Japan Airlines Corporation (JAL) may book a more-than-doubled
second-quarter profit on growing overseas demand, according to
Bloomberg.

JAL is likely to see its profits skyrocket as waning concerns
about SARS bolstered international travel. The airline, however,
may not reach its full-year profit target because of soaring oil
costs.

Bloomberg analysts said JAL's net income probably climbed to
JPY47.3 billion (US$444 million) in the three months ended
September 30 from JPY19.7 billion, previously. Sales probably
rose to 7.7 percent to JPY587.6 billion.

Investors believe JAL has rebounded from last year's record loss
resulting from the SARS scare, with a 46-percent rise in its
international traffic in the first half. But the carrier's 2004
profits may be eroded by the 71-percent oil price hike this
year.

The analysts forecast JAL's second-quarter profit at between
JPY43.2 billion and JPY58 billion.

JAL, Asia's largest airline, is currently undertaking measures
to cover rising costs by cutting expenses, reducing flight
frequencies and hiking fares.

MITSUBISHI FUSO: Bus-seat Repair Lags Behind Schedule
-----------------------------------------------------
Scandal-hit Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation is lagging
behind schedule in fixing faulty seats on its recalled buses,
Kyodo News says.

In September, the truck maker pledged to repair about 70 percent
of the 52,000 buses by October. But due to difficulties in using
standard seats as replacements on custom-made buses, the Company
has repaired only 43.2 percent of the total.

Mitsubishi Fuso officials assured the Company will deploy
additional personnel to complete the repairs by the end of this
year.

They also admitted the Company has not been able to conduct due
checkups on some 5,800 out of 69,000 buses for possible repairs
of defective clutch housings.

SOJITZ HOLDINGS: May Post JPY200 Bln Loss in First Half
-------------------------------------------------------
Sojitz Holdings Corporation is likely to post a group net loss
of over JPY200 billion (US$1.89 billion) for the first half of
the current fiscal year, Reuters reveals, citing the Nihon
Keizai newspaper.

The cash-strapped trading house will probably tally the first-
semester loss after booking an extraordinary of JPY240 billion.

Sojitz, UFJ Holdings' biggest troubled borrower, would write
down the value of subsidiaries' shares in the six months to
September 30 in line with efforts to withdraw from unprofitable
ventures.

On September 8, Sojitz said it would take a JPY400 billion
restructuring charge in the current fiscal year to cover the
disposal of real assets, the withdrawal from money-losing
businesses and adoption of asset impairment accounting policy.

To date, Sojitz is negotiating a US$3.4 billion bailout from UFJ
and Swiss bank UBS AG, among others.

The Company has announced it would tally a consolidated net loss
of JPY380 billion for the year against a previous forecast of
JPY50 billion in net profit.

STARZEN COMPANY: Affirms BBB- on Senior Debts
---------------------------------------------
The Japan Credit Rating Agency Limited (JCR) has affirmed the
BBB- rating on senior debts of Starzen Co., Ltd.

Rationale:

Starzen is a major meat wholesaler. Its earnings are expected to
increase for fiscal 2004 year-on-year. The increase will be the
third time in a row. Increase in utilization of plants through
increase in revenue from domestic beef and pork and improvement
in revenue and earnings due to recovery of market for domestic
pork will boost the performance.

Its financial burden with respect to the equity-method investee
Company Lohmeyer is increasing. With the earnings of the
investee Company increasing, Starzen's burden is beginning to
drop. However, the operation has yet to be in the black. Drastic
measures need to be taken for Lohmeyer.

SK CORPORATION: Unsatisfied with Sovereign's Respond
----------------------------------------------------
SK Corporation was discontented on the response of the
questionnaires it sent to Sovereign Asset Management Limited in
order for the latter to explain why it wanted an extraordinary
shareholders meeting, reports The Korea Herald.

"They didn't answer to any of the questions sent by outside
directors," said a SK Corp. official.

Sovereign urged the outside directors of SK Corp. to accept its
call for an extraordinary general shareholders meeting that is
aimed at ousting Chairman Chey Tae-won.

"It is clear to us that this is an occasion where the outside
directors can assert their independence and demonstrate their
responsibility to fulfill their fiduciary duty and act in the
interests of all shareholders by supporting our request for an
EGM," said James Fitter, Sovereign chief executive officer, in
response to a questionnaire sent Tuesday from SK Corp.'s seven
outside directors.

Sovereign reaffirmed its intention to seek an amendment to SK's
Articles of Incorporation, which would suspend any person
charged with or convicted of a serious criminal offense from
acting as a director.

The proposed amendment is common sense and such a bar on
convicted directors already has precedence in the SK Telecom, a
sister Company of SK Group, the statement said.

Sovereign also reaffirmed that the Company has failed to address
a series of fundamental issues holding back the Company's
performance including the corporate governance and its
leadership issue.

Outside directors of SK Corp. were scheduled to hold a meeting
Friday, to decide whether to accept Sovereign's demand.

Sovereign is SK's single largest shareholder with a 14.9 percent
stake.

SSANGYONG MOTORS: SAIC's Financial Strength Questioned Over Loan
----------------------------------------------------------------
The financial strength of Shanghai Automotive Industry Corp.
(SAIC) was questioned when it made bank loans to fund part of
the 48.9 percent stake it purchased in Ssangyong Motor Co. last
month, reports The Korea Herald.

SAIC borrowed about 66 percent of the KRW590.9 billion paid for
the stake in Ssangyong.  The lenders were three Chinese banks
and the purchase is scheduled to be completed in December.

Industry watchers said the hefty loans are enough to question
Shanghai Automotive's willingness and ability to further invest
in Ssangyong.

"If Shanghai's business falters, it can be tempted to drop the
promised investment plan in the carmaker." said Kim Hag-ju, an
auto analyst of Samsung Securities.

But other analysts said the loan maybe SAIC's own finance
method.  The amount of the loans may not lead to a serious
problem since SAIC is China's largest carmaker.

According to Lee Young-ho spokesman for Ssangyong workers union,
it was still too early to comment on the issue.  They will keep
watch how SAIC will keep its promise.

Shanghai Automotive has told Ssangyong workers that it will make
steady investments to expand the Korean auto manufacturer's
sales at home and abroad. The assurance was part of a special
agreement, with Ssangyong's Korean management signing as
proxies.

MYCOM BERHAD: SC OKs Special Issue Extension
--------------------------------------------
Southern Investment Bank Berhad refers to the proposed special
issue of 129,268,208 new ordinary shares of RM1.00 each (Shares)
in Mycom Berhad with 129,268,208 free detachable Mycom warrants
at an issue price of RM1.00 per Share (Special Issue), which
forms part of the Proposed Restructuring Scheme.

DEFERMENT OF SPECIAL ISSUE

Southern Investment Bank Berhad (SIBB) has submitted an
application on behalf of Mycom to seek the approval of the
Securities Commission (SC) to:

(i) Issue 75,000,000 Mycom Shares together with 75,000,000 free
detachable warrants at an issue price of RM1.00 per Mycom Share
to Bumiputera investors approved by the Ministry of
International Trade and Industry (MITI) upon completion of the
Proposed Restructuring Scheme; and

(ii) Issue the balance of 54,268,208 Mycom Shares together with
54,268,208 free detachable warrants at an issue price of RM1.00
per Mycom Share to Bumiputera investors approved by the MITI
within a period of eighteen (18) months from the completion of
the Proposed Restructuring Scheme.

On behalf of the Board of Directors of Mycom, SIBB wishes to
announce that the SC has via its letter dated 3 November 2004,
which was received on 4 November 2004, approved the following:

(i) Extension of time for eighteen (18) months up to 30 June
2006 to complete the Special Issue; and

(ii) Waiver from the approval condition where Mycom is required
to obtain its shareholders' approval for any variation of 25% or
more over the original utilization of proceeds from the rights
issue and the Special Issue resulting from the deferred
implementation of the Special Issue.

SIBB would like to highlight that the total proceeds raised from
the rights issue and the Special Issue will remain unchanged at
RM168,536,415 whilst the final utilization of the proceeds for
each category of usage will also remain unchanged. Accordingly
the utilization of proceeds from the rights issue and the
Special Issue has to be re-scheduled to suit the timing needs.

The SC's approval is subject to the following:

(i) Mycom's equity structure will be reassessed three (3) years
from the completion of the Proposed Restructuring Scheme (i.e.
31 December 2007); and

(ii) Mycom is required to inform the SC on the completion of the
Proposed Restructuring Scheme.

Accordingly, the previous condition imposed by the Foreign
Investment Committee where Mycom is required to increase its
Bumiputera equity to 30% upon conversion of its private debt
securities and exercise of its warrants, is no longer
applicable.

COLLEGE ASSURANCE: Clients Complain of Delayed Payments
-------------------------------------------------------
The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has received formal
complaints from three plan holders of pre-need Company College
Assurance Plans Philippines Inc. (CAP) on delayed payments of
accounts that have been terminated, Yehey Finance reports.

Instead of them getting their money immediately, they were asked
to wait for a few months. The plan holders terminated their
accounts with CAP "out of fear."

Schools have reportedly been starting to refuse checks issued by
the Company. "They are scared," the source said.

CAP, one of the biggest pre-need companies in the Philippines,
is under regulatory leeway. It reported a PhP17-billion
deficiency in its trust assets as of end-2003. During the
period, CAP had PhP8.4 billion in trust assets, compared with an
actuarial reserve liability, or projected future obligations, of
PhP25.5 billion.

Mr. Prachai said he was disappointed of the court's decision, "I
do not know what I will do next. I originally turned to the
court for help but now that the decision has turned out like
this, it is very disappointing."

Over 1,000 TPI employees rallied at the Constitution Court
Thursday to hear the decision, with many carrying banners and
signs attacking both the government and Prime Minister Thaksin
Shinawatra over the Company's treatment. About 200 police were
deployed to provide security at the court.

The court's ruling leaves the plan administrator of TPI
unchanged and would pave the way for the firm's restructuring
plan to move forward.
