NATIONAL AUSTRALIA: Three Contenders Eye Irish Banks
----------------------------------------------------
Three banks have expressed interest to bid for National
Australia Bank's (NAB) two Irish operations, reports the Sydney
Morning Herald.

HBOS, Lloyds TSB and Rabobank have already submitted indicative
bids for the Irish banks. Each of the contenders is believed to
have told NAB it will present a serious offer for the Northern
Ireland and Republic banks only if chosen as the exclusive
bidder.

According to sources, the potential buyers have yet to review
thoroughly the banks' books and the technology platforms used to
share information between NAB's four European banks.

HBOS, a merger of the former Halifax and Bank of Scotland, is
tipped to be the most preferred bidder.

NATIONAL AUSTRALIA: Says Annual Results Will "Reveal All"
---------------------------------------------------------
National Australia Bank will reveal all to investors through its
annual results set to be released this week, according to The
Age.

NAB is expected to report its financial statement on Wednesday,
and investors are looking for an update on whether it has begun
talks with one of the three flagged bidders for the Irish Banks.
They will also be seeking information on whether the damage from
the bank's forex scandal has been resolved and when Chief
Executive John Stewart expects NAB to bounce back to black.

Analysts forecast NAB to book a full-year profit of AU$3.4
billion, down 15 percent from the same period last year.

Last week, NAB revised up the total value of its bad loans
because of an exposure to failed business Airport Link. The
revision slashes AU$38 million off the bank's pretax earnings.

NAB reportedly received offers from HBOS, Lloyds TSB and
Rabobank for its Irish Banks and could reveal a final bidder
this week.

ASTRA INTERNATIONAL: Snags US$236-Mln Foreign Loans
---------------------------------------------------
PT Astra International has secured US$236 million in loans from
foreign banks, The Jakarta Post reveals.

In its first offshore financing since the Asian economic crisis,
Astra has signed a dual-currency revolving credit facility worth
US$170 million and IDR600 billion (US$66 million) with a
syndicate consisting of 16 foreign-based lenders.

The firm's finance director John Slack said the new syndicated
loan is part of Astra's rehabilitation process by the
international banking community as it restructures its debts. He
added the loan is significant as it is unsecured, which means
the creditors do not have recourse to any guarantors in case of
default.

The Company disclosed the facilities, which will carry a three-
year tenure and an annual 2.5 percent interest rate over the
Singapore Interbank Offered Rate (SIBOR), were US$50 million
higher than the initial target.

Proceeds from the loans will be used to refinance the Company's
current borrowings and to meet general corporate funding
requirements.

Astra, 42-percent owned by Singapore's Jardine Cycle & Carriage
Ltd., has total consolidated debts of about US$1 billion
following the collapse of the Indonesian currency in 1997.

BANK PERMATA: 20% Stake Sale to Kick Off Next Month
---------------------------------------------------
The government will offer another 20-percent stake in PT Bank
Permata through market placement in mid-December, according to
Indoexchange.

Asset Management Company (PPA) President Director Muhammad
Syahrial said the PPA will carry out the divestment the same way
it sold the 10-percent stake in Bank Danamon last week.

The government is expected to reap IDR1.09 trillion from the
sale of the 20-percent stake, given the base price was the same
as the 51-percent stake's IDR 703 per share.

The proceeds of the divestment will be used to help cover the
deficit in the 2004 Revised State Budget.

MENARA HUTAN: Foreign Consortium Keen to Regain License
-------------------------------------------------------
A foreign consortium with a stake in PT Menara Hutan Buana (MHB)
pledged to refinance a debt of the forest concessionaire if the
government returns its operating license, says Asia Pulse.

MHB President Probosutesjo said the investors from Singapore,
China, Sweden, Finland, Denmark, the United States and Canada
will inject capital for the construction of a huge pulp
processing plant if MHB regains its license to operate its
plantation forest in Kalimantan.

The investors are awaiting the renewal of the license to start
building a US$1.2 billion facility in Plaihari, South
Kalimantan. They have also agreed to provide the IDR600 million
monthly fund MHB needs to cover maintenance cost of the
plantation forest, which will supply the log raw material for
the plant.

MHB's operations were suspended by the state for failure to
repay an IDR100 billion (US$111 million) in reforestation funds
to the government.

PERTAMINA: State Allots Funds to Secure Domestic Fuel Stock
-----------------------------------------------------------
The government is allocating funds for state oil and gas firm PT
Pertamina to secure and boost the national fuel oil stockpile
for the approaching holiday season, Antara reports.

Energy and Mineral Resources Minister Purnomo Yusgiantoro
confirmed the state will sustain Pertamina's daily cash flow at
around IDR3 trillion in order for the Company to import fuel oil
when the need arises.

Mr. Purnomo added maintaining Pertamina's cash flow is critical
in the next two months when demand for fuel oil would climb
sharply.

The Indonesians, who are mostly Moslems, will celebrate the
post-fasting holiday of Idul Fitri in the middle of this month,
ahead of the Christmas and New Year's Eve festivities.

According to Mr. Purnomo, the state prepared a bigger fuel
subsidy this year amounting to IDR63 trillion. He said the
government is not only discussing ways to boost fuel oil supply
but also to increase state funds for Pertamina.

DAIEI INCORPORATED: Ito-Yokado, Aeon Mull Rehab Aid
---------------------------------------------------
Ito-Yokado Company and Aeon Company have expressed interest in
becoming candidates for sponsors of ailing Daiei Incorporated,
which is seeking rehabilitation from the Industrial
Revitalization Corporation of Japan (IRCJ), relates Kyodo News.

The state-backed IRCJ has invited companies to apply for
sponsorship this week, with trading house Marubeni Corporation
tipped as a likely applicant.

Meanwhile, the IRCJ has launched a probe into an alleged secret
deal between Daiei and U.S. investment fund Colony Capital LLC
over the sale of the Fukuoka Daiei Hawks baseball team.

Toshio Masui, head of Colony Capital's Japanese operations, said
the deal is "aimed at keeping the ball club in Fukuoka, and it
only means that Colony Capital can recommend a buyer" to Daiei.

The IRCJ already knows about the deal, he added.

Initially, Daiei expressed its intention to retain ownership of
the Hawks but has since decided to sell majority of its stake to
Softbank Corporation.

Daiei is considering reducing its current 98-percent stake in
the Hawks to about 20 percent by selling its shares to Softbank.

JAPAN AIRLINES: Swings To Black with JPY82.9-Bln Profit
-------------------------------------------------------
Japan Airlines Corporation the holding Company of the JAL Group
announced the consolidated financial results of the JAL Group
for the half year ended September 30, 2004.

Total operating revenues for the six-month period were JPY1,
075.7 billion, up 13.9% on the same period last year. Operating
costs were JPY988.8 billion (0.4% down on last year), resulting
in half year operating income of JPY86.8 billion. Ordinary
income was JPY107.8 billion and the first half net income was
JPY82.9 billion.

First half factors

(1) International passenger traffic
International passenger demand rose by 46.2% year-on-year in
terms of the number of passengers carried and by 32.3% in terms
of revenue passenger-kilometers. Even so, revenues rose by
JPY95.3 billion to JPY346 billion.

(2) Domestic traffic
Domestic passenger leisure demand was affected by the shift in
demand back to international routes, reversing the switch to
domestic routes in FY2003. Measures to boost sales included
introduction of the new `'Class-J'' service and increased use of
e-business sales methods. The number of domestic passengers went
down by 7.2% in comparison to the same period last year. Revenue
passenger kilometers performed went down by 6.6%. However,
following an improvement in yield, domestic passenger revenue
was up by JPY1.1 billion to a total of JPY344.9 billion.

(3) International cargo traffic
International cargo operations benefited from a substantial
increase in demand for digital consumer products. Revenue grew
by JPY12.2 billion (+17% on same period last year) to JPY83.5
billion. Volume carried rose 17.2% to 407,881 tons.

Fuel costs in the period last year averaged US$30.6 per barrel
of Singapore Kerosene but in the same period this year the price
averaged US$44.4 per barrel, whereas. JAL's forecast was based
on US$34 per barrel. The increase in the fuel bill for the first
half was 15.5 billion yen, 13% more than the same period last
year. (Total first half fuel cost: JPY137.1 billion)

Despite the rise in fuel costs, JAL took remedial measures to
reduce operating costs including more efficient utilization of
aircraft and personnel made possible as a result of the
integration with Japan Air System. Adoption of a new pension
scheme has also reduced costs. As a result operating costs for
the half-year are JPY4 billion less than the same period last
year.

The average US$-Yen exchange rate in the same period last year
was JPY118.7, compared to JPY109.7 this year. The stronger yen
produced exchange benefits amounting to JPY9.3 billion in the
air transport segment.

Non-operating income included JPY34.4 billion in credits from
manufacturers relating to aircraft and equipment purchase
(JPY18.9 billion more than the first half last year.

KOKUDO CORPORATION: Decides to Sell Seibu Lions Ball Club
---------------------------------------------------------
Kokudo Corporation has decided to sell off Seibu Lions pro
baseball team for JPY20-25 billion, according to Kyodo News,
citing Nihon Keizai Shimbun newspaper.

The scandal-hit firm is believed to have presented the offer to
sell its wholly owned unit Seibu Lions Incorporated to at least
three potential buyers.

Kokudo is hoping that the new owner will take in the entire
Seibu Lions team and continue to use the Seibu Dome in Saitama
Prefecture. The Seibu Lions of the Pacific League last month
clinched their first Japan Series title in 12 years by beating
the Chunichi Dragons of the Central League.

Kokudo, an unlisted firm that operates the Prince Hotel chain
and sports facilities, has been embroiled in a scandal over its
shareholdings in group firm Seibu Railway Company.


KOKUDO CORPORATION: Chief To Quit Over Seibu Railway Scam
---------------------------------------------------------
Kokudo Corporation President Minoru Mikami is expected to step
down to demonstrate his blame for a scandal surrounding the
falsification of the firm's shareholdings in Seibu Railway
Company, according to The Japan Times.

The resignation will come after the Tokyo Stock Exchange and
financial regulators conclude their investigations into Kokudo
and Seibu Railway's tampering of their financial statements and
shady sales of Kokudos' stake in the railway.

Mr. Mikami reportedly had close ties with former Kokudo Chairman
Yoshiaki Tsutsumi, who on October 13 vacated all his posts in
the Company and in Seibu Railway group firms in connection with
the scandal.

The scandal started upon discovery that Kokudo sold some of its
shares in Seibu Railway without informing the buyers that the
railway firm's stock ownership conditions made it subject to
delisting.

Some of the purchasers have demanded Kokudo to buy back the
shares.


MITSUBISHI MOTORS: Unveils FY 2004 First-half Financial Results
---------------------------------------------------------------
Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) announced its first-half
financial results for fiscal year 2004, ending March 31, 2005,
and outlined its forecast for the full year and the status of
its Business Revitalization Plan.

Fiscal year 2004 first-half results

Consolidated net sales for the first half totaled JPY1,070.8
billion, down JPY136 billion from the same period of the last
fiscal year (JPY1,206.8 billion). Region by region, the launch
of the new Colt combined with overall brisk sales in the United
Kingdom, Russia and the Ukraine boosted sales in Europe by
JPY29.2 billion, for a total of 348 billion in sales.

In Japan, the past recall problem triggered sales to decline by
JPY109.7 billion with sales for the period totaling JPY182.8
billion. In North America, a decision to reduce fleet sales, the
decrease in retail sales and other factors combined for sales of
237.3 billion, a decrease of JPY43.9 billion. For Asia and the
rest of the world, a large portion of sales comprised of lower
revenue-yielding parts and components for overseas production
resulted in a decline of JPY11.6 billion on JPY302.7 billion in
sales.

In terms of unit volume, in Japan some 96,000 units were sold,
or 75,000 fewer units than last year. In North America, 92,000
units were delivered, a drop of 58,000 from the previous year.
European figures have grown by 8,000 units, reaching a total of
112,000 vehicles. In Asia and the rest of the world, weak sales
in Australia were offset by strong figures in Indonesia, Latin
America, the Middle East and Africa, for a total of 346,000
units, a slight decrease of 1,000 units.

Operating revenue improved by JPY12.9 billion year-on-year for
an operating loss of JPY63.5 billion. Trends affecting profit
included the decrease in sales volume in both Japan and North
America and the increased costs incurred as a result of the
warranty claims caused by the past recall problems in Japan.
These were countered by the reduction of sales promotion
expenses, including domestic advertising and sales incentives in
the US, the non-recurrence of a one-time charge against the
financial services business in the US, and a reduction in
material costs. Ordinary revenue was affected mainly by non-
operating expenses deriving from losses at equity-method
affiliates, and fees from the issuing of new shares in June and
July. As a result, ordinary loss increased by JPY11.9 billion
for a total of JPY97.7 billion.

As a result of revitalization initiatives, extraordinary
expenses during the period led to a net loss of JPY146.2
billion, or JPY66 billion more than the same period last year.
Extraordinary losses recorded by MMC included measures to
restore trust in the market which included free vehicle
inspection services in Japan, restructuring costs related to our
facilities in Australia, costs incurred by the integration of
production facilities in the Nagoya area, and write-off for the
cancellation of the development of a new car.

With regard to MMC's financial standing at the end of September
this year, shareholders' equity, which was bolstered by a
capital increase, stood at JPY373.7 billion with an equity ratio
of 19.5 percent compared to JPY30 billion and 1 percent
respectively at the end of fiscal year 2003.

Total outstanding interest-bearing debts were reduced during the
first half to JPY717.9 billion (automotive debt: 538.1 billion
yen, financial services debt: JPY179.8 billion) compared to the
JPY1,062.6 billion outstanding at the end of March this year
(automotive: JPY869.3 billion, financial services: JPY193.3
billion), for an overall improvement of JPY344.7 billion.


Forecast for fiscal 2004

The full-year outlook, based on the current sales atmosphere, is
that while North America and Japan will likely fall below last
year's levels, Europe, Asia and the rest of the world are
projected to surpass their previous year respective figures,
such that global totals are predicted to reach 1.4 million
units, or 127,000 units less than the previous fiscal year. This
number is 53,000 units less than what was forecast in the
Business Revitalization Plan announced on May 21.

The outlook for overall performance for the year is estimated to
be JPY2.1 trillion, or JPY419.4 billion off of last year (150
billion short of earlier Company projections). An operating loss
of JPY120 billion is forecast, which is in line with the earlier
forecast and is JPY23.1 billion over last year's losses.
Ordinary losses are forecast to reach JPY180 billion, exceeding
earlier projections by JPY30 billion and last year's losses by
JPY69.7 billion. Net losses are anticipated to be JPY240
billion, which is 24.6 billion over the same term last year, and
are JPY10 billion over the initial forecast.

The restructuring of the Company as set out in the Business
Revitalization Plan continues, with activities such as the
reduction of fixed and variable costs being put into effect.
Already a number of activities specified in the announcements
made on May 21 and June 16 have been initiated ahead of
schedule. In the three months following July, JPY27 billion was
saved, with the year's goal being JPY89.4 billion in cost
savings. These efforts will be continued through the second half
of the year.

Corporate compliance

One of the cornerstones to the Business Revitalization Plan was
making compliance a top priority. A written pledge of legal
compliance has been created and all corporate executives have
signed. All employees and corporate executives were also
required to attend seminars on corporate ethics. And also, every
department has held meetings concerning business ethics
problems.

The results of the business ethics problems meetings were
positive; these meetings covered matters that we as a Company
must pay attention to and that we must improve. Through these
discussions the staff understood the importance of corporate
ethics, and since we believe the issue to be important enough to
ensure that the proper time is taken to see that it is
meaningful, the deadline for the written pledge by all employees
has been rescheduled for the end of December.

Business Revitalization "Action Plan"

As part of the activities of the Revitalization Committee, which
was set up in June to promote the Business Revitalization Plan,
Cross Functional Teams (CFTs) comprised of younger employees
have been coming up with proposals to realize mid- and long-term
restructuring and basic strategy since August. A Business
Revitalization follow-up team was established in September. This
team's job will be to examine in closer detail the financial
aspects of the CFT's proposals. The team will make proposals in
cooperation with the CFTs. Proposals will be carefully reviewed
and considered by the Board of Directors, then it will be
determined and officially announced as the "Business
Revitalization Action Plan" in mid-December.

DAEWOO HEAVY: Union Workers Forge Alliance with Federation
----------------------------------------------------------
Daewoo Heavy Industries & Machinery Ltd. workers formed an
emergency committee Sunday with the Federation of Korea Metal
Workers in its bid to block Doosan Heavy Industries &
Construction Co. from acquiring Daewoo, reports The Korea Times.

The Federation of Korea Metal Workers, which upervises unions at
automobile, metal and heavy industries, consists of about
160,000 members and 170 chapters nationwide, including powerful
labor unions at Hyundai Motor Co. and other local automakers.

The union does not favor of Doosan being chosen as the preferred
bidder because they believe Doosan Group does not have any
respect for job security.  The workers are also firm in their
decision not to accept Doosan as their buyer.

A due diligence inspection must be done by Doosan and reach a
deal with state-run Korea Asset Management Corp., by the end of
this month or risk losing its preferred bidder status to Hyosung
Corp.  However no inspection date was announced.

Daewoo workers said the Federation will join in blocking Doosan
Heavy from inspecting Daewoo Heavy plants in Incheon and
Changwon.

Doosan Heavy, a unit of Korea's No. 12 conglomerate Doosan
Group, has guaranteed job security for Daewoo Heavy employees
for three years and said it will operate the Company separately.
But the promises have failed to convince workers.

The workers based their judgment on Doosan from what happened to
the workers of Korea Heavy Industries & Construction.  When
Doosan acquired Korea Heavy in 2000, it cut about 2,500 jobs by
introducing early retirement packages.  Daewoo workers fear they
may suffer the same fate once Doosan has finally acquired
Daewoo.

Doosan Heavy aims to diversify its business, and it will be able
to do so upon its acquisition of Daewoo Heavy.

SK CORPORATION: Sovereign to File Court Petition Against Board
--------------------------------------------------------------
Sovereign Asset Management will take legal action against the
board of SK Corporation after brushing off its request for a
shareholders' meeting, reports Digital Chosunilbo.

SK rejected Sovereign's request for a shareholder meeting aiming
to oust SK's chairman Chey Tae-won, who was indicted for illicit
dealings and accounting.

Sovereign will file a petition with the Korean Court, asking
permission to hold a special shareholder meeting in order to
carry out its good governance responsibilities, Sovereign
President Peter Fitter said.

Sovereign had said corporate governance regulations should be
changed to prevent a board director, who has been indicted with
a serious criminal offense, from carrying out his duties.

Following the rejection of Sovereign's request for a general
shareholder meeting, the board of SK intentionally obstructed
shareholders' efforts to protect their own interests from
illegal acts by the management, Mr. Fitter said.

SK Corp. had expected Sovereign to take legal measures on the
matter and it would honor a Court's decision.

million in tuition payments by the end of the year, reports ABS-

MANILA ELECTRIC: Aims To Restructure Units This Year
----------------------------------------------------
The Manila Electric Co. (Meralco) plans to break up its power
and non-power related businesses in compliance with the law
restructuring the power sector, the Business World reports,
citing Meralco Vice-President Ivanna G. Dela Pena.

Among the utility's units and affiliates are Meralco Energy,
Inc., Meralco Financial Services, Asian Center for Energy
Management, Corporate Information Solutions, e-Meralco Ventures,
First Private Power Corp., General Electric Philippines, Meralco
Industrial Engineering Services, Rockwell Land Corp., Soluziona
Philippines, and Meralco Management and Leadership Development
Center Foundation, Inc.

The plan, which is the structural and functional unbundling of
business activities for power utilities, would divide different
activities and functions of distribution utilities.

MANILA ELECTRIC: Higher Power Rates Won't Lift Profit
-----------------------------------------------------
The Manila Electric Co. (Meralco) said power rates will increase
starting this month but the additional fees aren't expected to
boost profits, reports Dow Jones, citing Meralco's Vice
President for Corporate Communications Elpi Cuna.

Meralco said the generation charge would rise to Php4.57 per kWh
from 3.4950 due to an increase in generation costs at the state
utility National Power Corporation.

The Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) has allowed Napocor to
raise rates by PHP1.23 a kWh. Meralco said its customers would
only pay PHP1.075 a kWh since it sources 61% of its electricity
supply from Napocor.

NATIONAL POWER: Sets Bid For Php780-Mln Fuel Requirement
--------------------------------------------------------
The National Power Corporation (Napocor) will bid out next week
its January and February 2005 fuel requirements estimated to
reach about Php780 million, ABS-CBS News reports.

Napocor data showed it would need some 29,606 kiloliters (kl) of
fuel oil for the two-month period. About 4,290 kl (Php112.5
million) would be used by its plants/barges; another 13,810 kl
(Php341.6 million) by its independent power producers (IPPS);
and about 11,506 kl (Php325.1 million) by its small power
utilities group (SPUG).

The power firm said funding for the fuel purchase would be
sourced from internally generated cash.

Industry sources said Napocor would likely ask the bidders,
mostly the major oil refining firms (Petron Corp. and Pilipinas
Shell Petroleum Corp.), to offer a fixed price.


PHILIPPINE LONG: To Pay Preferred Shares Dividend

KRUNG THAI: Court Accepts Former Head's Second Lawsuit
------------------------------------------------------
The "urgent" lawsuit filed by former Krung Thai Bank Public
Company Limited president that seeks to freeze the appointment
of Apisak Tantivorawong as new KTB president was accepted by the
Administrative Court last Tuesday, The Nation relates.

The lawsuit was an extension of the one Viroj Nualkhair, the
former KTB president filed against the Bank of Thailand (BoT)
and its governor, Pridiyathorn Devakula, questioning the
legality of his disqualification to hold another term for the
bank presidency.

Mr. Viroj is seeking monetary compensation for damage to his
reputation and career, and the right to be reinstated as KTB
president.

According to a source close to the matter, Mr. Viroj asked for a
freeze on Mr. Apisak's appointment because, if he won his first
lawsuit, it would duplicate the board's earlier appointment of
Mr. Viroj to the post.

"KTB's board of directors had earlier approved the reappointment
of Khun Viroj as the bank's president for a second term. Now the
board has approved Khun Apisak's appointment. There would be
duplication if Khun Viroj won the first case. So, he [Viroj]
filed an urgent lawsuit to freeze the appointment," the source
said.

The temporary delay in the appointment of a new president caused
by the lawsuit was unlikely to affect the bank's operation, he
claimed.

In his first lawsuit, Mr. Viroj asked for THB201 million as
claims to damages for being blacklisted by the BoT, preventing
him from serving as an executive of any financial institution
and for being denied the post of KTB president.

The BOT refused to endorse Viroj for a second term, holding him
responsible for THB46-billion of doubtful debts booked by the
state-owned bank in the second quarter of this year. The central
bank sent a letter to KTB's board of directors ordering the bank
to cancel its approval of Mr. Viroj's appointment for a second
term as president.

To date the BoT has not received any notice from the Court to
freeze Mr. Apisak's appointment.
