CLAIRMONT-DALE PTY: Court Appoints Liquidator on ASIC's Request
---------------------------------------------------------------
The Federal Court of Australia ordered that Clairmont-Dale Pty
Ltd (Clairmont-Dale) be wound up following an application by the
Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC).

The Court appointed Mr. Gess Rambaldi, of Pitcher Partners, the
liquidator of Clairmont-Dale, which traded under the name
'Warwick Insurance Services'.

ASIC's investigation of Clairmont-Dale indicated that the
Company had no presence at its registered office, that nobody
claimed to be a shareholder of the Company, and that the only
person listed as a director of the Company claimed to have
resigned.

Under the Corporations Act 2001, proprietary companies are
required to have a registered office, at least one shareholder
and at least one director. Companies cannot function without
directors.

As a result of the Court order, the liquidator will now take
control of the affairs of Clairmont-Dale.

Clairmont-Dale carried on business as an insurance intermediary,
but ceased trading in around March 2004. ASIC commenced an
investigation after concerns were raised that some clients of
the Company may not have received insurance policies which they
believed Clairmont-Dale had arranged for them.

'ASIC suggests that former clients of Clairmont-Dale contact
their insurer, if they have not already done so, to confirm the
existence and terms of their insurance cover', Mr. Mark Steward,
Deputy Executive Director of Enforcement, said.

ASIC's investigations are continuing.

JAMES HARDIE: CSR Seeks Asbestos Compensation Documents
-------------------------------------------------------
Building products producer CSR Limited has issued subpoena for
James Hardie Industries to produce documents in a compensation
case before the Dust Diseases Tribunal, says The Advertiser.

CSR, along with a former Hardie subsidiary, is seeking avenues
for legal action to force embattled James Hardie to share a
greater burden of asbestos compensation payouts.

Their incentive to pursue Hardie in Courts will depend upon the
outcome of talks between Hardie and Australian Council of Trade
Unions (ACTU) secretary Greg Combet over Hardie's recent offer
to meet the debts of its former asbestos subsidiaries
voluntarily.

Asbestos compensation claims are sometimes jointly made against
both CSR and one of James Hardie's former asbestos-manufacturing
subsidiaries, either Amaca or Amaba.

But claims cannot be made against James Hardie itself but
against either the new parent Company in The Netherlands or the
old parent Company in Australia, now known as ABN 60.

If CSR could prove that ABN 60 was indeed liable for some of the
asbestos-related suffering caused to victims, ABN 60 would have
to share some of the financial burden of the compensation.

CSR, which already paid a total of AU$350 million in
compensation, now has a provision of AU$324 million for all
future claims. The bulk of the claims relate to CSR's Wittenoom
blue asbestos mine in Western Australia, which was shut down in
1966.

James Hardie, on the other hand, cut itself from its liabilities
in 2001 when it relocated to the Netherlands and placed Amaca
and Amaba into a foundation.

It has infused AU$293 million into the foundation to meet all
future claims before an AU$1 billion shortfall was found.

* ASIC Shuts Down Electronic Currency Trading Websites
------------------------------------------------------
The Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) has
acted to shut down a number of electronic currency exchange
businesses that operate on the Internet.

Following an examination of electronic currency trading
websites, ASIC became aware of three Australian-based businesses
that were operating such sites or were acting as agents for
similar businesses based overseas. These businesses exchanged
conventional currencies to electronic currencies and vice-versa,
and charged a commission for their services. These businesses do
not hold an Australian financial services (AFSL).

The Executive Director of Enforcement, Ms. Jan Redfern said that
consumers needed to be discerning about the financial products
available on the Internet while cautioning local businesses to
be careful about dealing in unregulated overseas based financial
products.

"If a business isn't properly registered with an AFSL then
consumers can't be sure about the quality of the product or
advice they are receiving. Remember, offering financial advice
or products without a license is illegal," Ms. Redfern said.

The companies, Stevens I.T. Pty Ltd, Sydney Gold Sales Pty Ltd
and Fountainhead Management Pty Ltd, which acted as an
Australian agent, cooperated with ASIC throughout its
investigation. They all withdrew the websites and closed down
their businesses voluntarily.

The websites involved were:

www.goldex.net;
www.sydneygoldsales.com; and
www.ozzigold.com.

Ms. Redfern said it was important that the operators of new and
emerging financial practices and products were familiar with
their legal responsibilities.

"Local businesses need to be aware that there are licensing
rules that they must adhere to. Businesses should be careful to
check what the law allows and avoid becoming involved with
financial products issued by unregulated offshore providers."

"Consumers must also be wary of the financial products and
advice they obtain via the Internet. While ASIC will continue to
carry out surveillance checks on financial products and
operators and, where appropriate, take action, consumers should
remember that people offering financial products and advice over
the internet are also required to be licensed and operate under
the same laws," Ms. Redfern said.

Electronic currencies, or e-currencies, are privately issued
currencies that are used to trade goods and services on the
Internet. The issuers of these electronic currencies are based
offshore. The most common of these currencies is e-gold which is
issued by e-gold Inc, based in the small West Indies country of
Nevis. Other electronic currencies include e-bullion, pecunix,
GoldMoney, EVOCash and WebMoney.

ASIC believes that such products can be defined as non-cash
payment systems and that people who deal in such products with
Australian consumers must hold an Australian financial services
license (AFSL).

ASTRA INTERNATIONAL: Forecasts 10% Revenue Growth in 2005
---------------------------------------------------------
PT Astra International expects its 2005 revenue to climb 10
percent year-on-year mainly due to an increase in car and
motorcycle sales, according to Dow Jones.

Astra Finance Director John Slack is certain the revenue target
is "achievable", saying the growth of the national car and
motorcycle market looks promising next year due improved
consumer purchasing power.

In the nine months to September, Astra sold 154,386 cars in the
domestic market, compared with 112,616 units a year earlier,
expanding its market share to 44 percent from 42% percent,
previously.

In line with its goal to expand its business, Astra and its
Japanese counterpart Komatsu Limited are set to form a Company
that will lease heavy equipment, in a 50-50 joint venture. The
paid up capital will be US$20 million.

BANK MANDIRI: Seeks House Approval for Debt Write-off Scheme
------------------------------------------------------------
Bank Mandiri will seek approval from the House of
Representatives to write-off its IDR21 trillion (US$230 million)
troubled debts, says The Jakarta Post.

The move would allow the bank to erase the troubled loans from
its balance sheet, eliminating the need to allocate huge
provisions to cover for them.

However, the write-off doesn't mean the loans become
"uncollectable", as Mandiri will retain the right to collect the
money and the collateral at a lesser amount.

In certain circumstances, the government is authorized to grant
a debt write-off through a presidential decree for debts worth
less than IDR100 billion. More than that, an approval from the
House is required.

Some of the troubled loans are ones that were the subject of
long legal disputes. But Mandiri director and corporate
secretary Nimrod Sitorus defended that none of the debts had
come from loan assets the bank purchased from the now-defunct
Indonesian Bank Restructuring Agency (IBRA).

Bank Mandiri was among the most active lenders that bought non-
performing loans (NPLs) taken over by IBRA from the banking
sector during the Asian economic crisis.

Of Mandiri's total bad loans, IDR4.6 trillion were those of an
individual size of below IDR5 million and are categorized as
loans owed by small and medium enterprises (SMEs).

As for the recovery-rate target, the bank is hopeful of
recovering around 30 percent to 50 percent of the outstanding
debts.

Meanwhile, the bank reportedly unloaded in June 2004 some IDR61
trillion to IDR173 trillion worth of recapitalization bonds it
received from the government during the crisis.

BANK PERMATA: PPA Should Prioritize Stake Ownership Over Price
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Asset Management Company (PPA) is expected to prioritize the
distribution on share ownership of PT Bank Permata than the
stake price, according to Indoexchange, citing BNI banking
analyst Fendi Susiyanto.

Mr. Susiyanto was referring to the planned divestment of the
government's remaining 20 percent stake in Permata, which is set
for launch in mid-December this year.

According to him, dispersion in Permata share ownership would
impact on the application of corporate governance. Moreover, the
dispersed stock ownerships would boost the stake price, which
will generate more profits for the government.

Meanwhile, PPA has allowed the Standchart-Astra consortium to
join the bid for Permata's 20-percent stake.

The consortium was recently given formal clearance by the
Central Bank to acquire a 51-percent stake in Permata for
IDR2.77 trillion (US$304 million). The team was also named
"standby buyer" for the state's remaining 20 percent stake.

The 20-percent Permata stake sale was proposed to carry a price
similar to the previous divestment of the 51-percent stake in
the bank, equivalent to IDR704 per share or 2.72 times the
IDR258 per share book value in June 2004.

INDOFOOD SUKSES: Pursues Bond Issuance Plan
-------------------------------------------
PT Indofood Sukses Makmur Tbk will continue its plan to issue
Bond IV despite its falling behind schedule, says Indoexchange.

Indofood director Djoko Wibowo confirmed the Company is in talks
with its legal advisers and trustees about the repurchase of its
euro bonds in order to pave the way for the realization of the
plan to offer IDR1.75 trillion worth of Bond IV.

Proceeds from the bond issuance will be used to refinance debt,
which will make the Company's debt-to-equity ratio at 1:1 by the
end of 2005.

By the end of this year, Indofood expects to receive an
effective statement for bond issuance signed by the Capital
Market Supervisory Agency so the Bond IV could be offered in
January next year.

PT Trimegah Securities, PT Mandiri Sekuritas, PT Danatama Makmur
Securities and PT Nusantara Capital Securities were appointed as
underwriters for the issue.

DAIEI INCORPORATED: Softbank Confident It Will Acquire Hawks
------------------------------------------------------------
Softbank Corporation is confident it will acquire Daiei
Incorporated's pro baseball club before the start of the next
season, according to The Japan Times.

Softbank chief executive Masayoshi Son said Wednesday the
Company is making solid progress in its bid for the Fukuoka
Daiei Hawks.

The Internet services provider and telecommunications Company
last month declared its intention to buy the baseball team from
the ailing retailer.

In a news conference, Softbank disclosed it is willing to buy
the rights of Colony Capital LLC, a U.S. investment fund who
bought the Fukouka Dome from Daiei and gained rights to sell
Hawks tickets and products.

A Colony executive earlier said Softbank has offered between
JPY10 billion and JPY15 billion for their rights.

However, Softbank refused to divulge how much it is willing to
pay for the team and Colony's rights.

KOKUDO CORPORATION: To Comply with Buyback Requests
---------------------------------------------------
Kokudo Corporation has agreed to buy back the shares in Seibu
Railway Co. it sold to its business partners in August and
September, reports The Asahi Shimbun.

The scandal-hit firm decided to honor buyback requests of some
20 firms in a bid to make amends with affiliates who bought the
railway shares.

Kokudo has admitted it sold Seibu shares to more than 50
companies before Seibu revealed in October it has long been
tampering its financial statements to avert delisting from the
First Section of the Tokyo Stock Exchange.

However, experts believe the offer falls short of a blanket
buyback, as the JPY1,100 to JPY1,300  per share sale price is
well above Seibu's current stock price, which has plummeted by
more than half since the scandal broke.

Some of the purchasers are considering legal action to recover
their losses. But since Seibu's share price could bounce back,
just as it could continue to fall, calculating how much Kokudo
should offer in compensation becomes difficult.

After the buyback, Kokudo would have to reduce its Seibu
holdings to bypass a delisting rule that states the combined
ownership of a Company's top ten shareholders must not exceed 80
percent for one year or longer.


KOKUDO CORPORATION: Eyes Full Restructuring to Prop Up Seibu
------------------------------------------------------------
Embattled Kokudo Corporation is considering a full restructure
of its business in a bid to toss up its troubled parent, Seibu
Group, Japan Today says, citing Kyodo News.

Kokudo is now deciding on whether to keep its nearly 40 debt-
ridden sports and leisure facilities in business.

Recently, the Company has denied reports that it is selling the
Seibu Lions Professional baseball club as part of its
restructuring.

Kokudo has been embroiled in a string of financial scandals
after admitting its had falsified information on its
shareholdings with group firm Seibu Railway.

Since the revelation, the value of Seibu Railway shares held by
Kokudo dived sharply to JPY93 billion from JPY421.3 billion,
previously.


MITSUBISHI MOTORS: Colt Model Wins Prestigious German Award
-----------------------------------------------------------
Mitsubishi Motors Corporation announced that the Company's 5-
door Colt compact car produced in Europe was awarded the coveted
"Das Goldene Lenkrad" (Golden Steering Wheel) by the German
Sunday newspaper "Bild am Sonntag," published by Alex Springer
AG.

The European Colt was presented the award for its status as the
"Best in Class One (Small Car category)" in a ceremony held in
Berlin on November 10 and attended by some 400 representatives
of political and financial circles, print and TV media and the
world of sport.

Colt becomes the fourth Mitsubishi Motors model to win the
Golden Steering Wheel award, fol-lowing the Galant (Japanese
name: Galant-Sigma) in the mid-size category in 1984, the Colt
(Japanese name: Mirage) in the small car category in 1988, and
the Pajero (Shogun in U.K.) in the off-road category in 1992.

Mitsubishi Motors' Chairman and CEO Yoichiro Okazaki had the
following to say about the award: "I am delighted that Colt has
been presented the Golden Steering Wheel, an award distinguished
by its long history and prestigious status. The Colt series will
play a vital role in the continued growth of Mitsubishi Motors
operations in Europe, which moved into the black for the first
time in the 2003 fiscal year. In bestowing high critical acclaim
to Colt's product qualities, the award will serve to boost the
morale not only of personnel working in our European operations
but also of everyone in the Mitsubishi Motors group of companies
that is currently in the process of regenerating its op-
erational base."

The jury cited the quality of workmanship, versatility, seating
comfort, space offering, operating comfort, cost performance and
excellent road performance as the key factors in its decision to
award Colt the Golden Steering Wheel.

Seen by many as the equivalent of a German Car of the Year
award, the coveted Golden Steering Wheel was first presented in
1976 and this year celebrates its 29th anniversary. With a
readership of 10.7 million, the Bild am Sonntag boasts the
largest circulation for a Sunday newspaper in Europe and is way
ahead of other similar publications in terms of popularity and
influence. All new models launched on the German market during
that year are considered by the Golden Steering Wheel jury which
presents the award to the "Best Car" in each of several
categories such as small size, mid-size and large size. In the
Small Car category, Colt held off competition from such top
sellers as the smart forfour, Renault Modus, Fiat Idea, Peugeot
1007, Lancia Musa and the Kia Picanto. The jury's vote bears
testimony to the high critical acclaim accorded Colt in Germany,
a country that is as stringent in its assessment of automobiles
as Japan.

The award-winning European Colt is produced at Mitsubishi
Motors' subsidiary NedCar in Borne, the Netherlands. The series
had its European launch in May this year and recently added 1.1L
gasoline and diesel versions to its line up. In a move designed
to further expand sales in Europe, the Company plans to bring
the 3-door Colt CZ3 and the 150 PS turbocharged Colt CZT per-
formance model to market in early 2005.

Prior to its Golden Steering Wheel accolade, the European Colt
was voted "Car of the Year in Denmark 2005" by the Danish
Automotive Journalists Club and "Compact Car of the Year 2004"
by the Kampioen magazine published the Dutch Automobile
Association, ANWB.

RINGER HUT: JCR Affirms BBB- on Senior Debts
--------------------------------------------
The Japan Credit rating Agency Limited (JCR) has affirmed the
BBB- rating on senior debts of Ringer Hut Co., Ltd.

Rationale:

Ringer Hut announced in August that it would call on former COO
of McDonald's Japan as the new president. The strategy of Ringer
Hut will be revised by the assumption of the new president. It
plans to resume opening of new outlets, overhauling the existing
business styles.

JCR considers that the earnings power of Ringer Hut will be
lowered further if it fails to improve the operations of the
mainstay Nagasaki champon noodle restaurants, given the
unlikelihood of turnaround of business environment.

JCR will watch carefully the going of the next mid-term
management plan.

SOFTBANK CORPORATION: Back in Black on Broadband Growth
-------------------------------------------------------
Softbank Corporation swung to black in the last quarter, as
income soared from its broadband services, says the Associated
Press.

The top Internet service provider, which invested in Internet
firms such as Yahoo Inc., booked a net profit of JPY11.8 billion
(US$112 million) for the three months through September,
offsetting its JPY42.6 billion loss a year ago.

The Company saw its sales climb to JPY156 billion (US$1.5
billion), up 287 percent from JPY122 billion, previously.

For the first semester of the current business year, Softbank's
loss came to JPY6 billion (US$57 million), compared to a JPY77
billion loss in the same period last year. Sales also went up 35
percent at JPY303.7 billion (US$2.9 billion) from JPY225
billion.

KOOKMIN BANK: To Consolidate Unions by January 1
------------------------------------------------
Kookmin Bank will finally integrate its bulky organization after
its three labor unions agreed to merge Wednesday, reports The
Korea Herald.

According to Chief Executive Kang Chung-won, in January 1 next
year, Kookmin Bank, Housing & Commercial Bank and Kookmin Credit
Card will create a combined union that will pave the way to
resolve conflicts and unity in order to become the bank of
clients and the nation.

"Since union consolidation has been one of the most urgent
issues for Kookmin, the news brightens its future outlook
considerably," said Im Il-sung, a banking analyst at Meritz
Securities Co.

Kookmin Bank and Housing & Commercial Bank merged in 2001, but
their unions remained separated. The Kookmin Credit union was
added when the bank and credit card unit merged in September
last year.

Despite the union's agreement to merge, some disputes still
remain among the labor organizations as well as between
management and labor.

To be able to realize the unification plan, at least two-thirds
of the union members should vote in favor of the plan. Seventy
percent of the unions from Kookmin-H&C Bank and Kookmin credit
expressed their support to the plan in a survey, while Kookmin
Bank's approval rate only stood at some 56 percent.

"In addition, we have yet to decide how to operate the rotating
leadership system and some other details," said Lee Moo-sang, a
union leader from Kookmin Credit.

The bank's management and labor also reached an agreement on a
4.2 percent pay raise for regular staff and 50 percent of their
salary as a special bonus.

Employees of Kookmin Bank run to a total of 28,165 at the end of
June.  Some 8,000 are nonpermanent workers and will get an 8.4
percent wage increase.

Kookmin's management and labor also reached an agreement to
change at least 50 nonpermanent workers to full-time status each
year.

EKRAN BERHAD: Posts Audited Financial Statements
------------------------------------------------
In compliance with paragraph 9.19(35) of the Listing
Requirements of Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad, Ekran Berhad
announced the following qualifications as stated in the external
auditors' report of the Company for the financial year ended 30
June 2004:

(1) As disclosed in Note 19 to the financial statements, the
advances to an associated Company, Wembley Industries Holdings
Berhad (WIHB) and its subsidiary, amounting to RM98.9 million as
at 30 June 2004, do not appear to be in compliance with the
provisions of the Companies Act, 1965, in relation to advances
to persons connected with a director of the Company. Although
the relevant director has no direct interest in the associated
Company, the associated Company is deemed to be a person
connected to the director by virtue of the director's interests
in shares in the Company. In addition, the recoverability of the
advances is subject to the successful implementation of WIHB's
debt restructuring scheme as disclosed in Note 19 to the
financial statements, which in turn is subject, inter alia, to
the Company subscribing for its full rights issue entitlement
amounting to RM23.7 million.

(2) As disclosed in Note 30(c) to the financial statements, the
Company received a proposed offer from Tan Sri Dato' Paduka (Dr)
Ting Pek Khiing (Tan Sri Ting) in 2001 for a revised settlement
for a sum of RM564.0 million out of the total RM712.9 million
owing by Tan Sri Ting to the Company, i.e. a discount of RM148.9
million. In 2001 Tan Sri Ting had effected repayment of RM246.5
million, thus leaving a balance of RM466.4 million prior to
consideration of the proposed discount. In the auditors' report
for the previous financial year, the auditors had opined that a
provision for doubtful recovery of RM148.9 million should have
been recognized in that financial year. A provision for doubtful
recovery has been made in the current financial year for the
RM148.9 million discount leaving a net balance of RM317.5
million in the financial statements. Had the provision been made
in the appropriate financial year, the loss before taxation for
the current financial year would have decreased by RM148.9
million with a corresponding increase in the reported loss for
the comparative financial year. Further, in view of the
uncertainty regarding the ability of Tan Sri Ting to fulfill his
remaining obligations, we are unable to ascertain whether any
further provision for doubtful recovery is required. The
financial statements of the Group and of the Company do not
include any further provision for doubtful recovery of the
amount owing by Tan Sri Ting to the extent any such amount may
not be finally recoverable.

(3) As disclosed in Note 11(b) to the financial statements,
included in the property, plant and equipment of the Group is a
resort known as Samal Casino Resort (Resort) with a carrying
value of RM37.1 million as at 30 June 2004. The Resort is
situated in Kaputian, Island Garden City of Samal Philippines.
The Resort had ceased operations since 15 June 2000 and the
Group is currently seeking a suitable buyer for the Resort. A
valuation on the Resort assets was performed on 30 July 2004.
However, the valuation report disclosed that the valuation
exercise did not include an examination of the property nor did
it consider additions or deductions that may have been made
since the last appraisal dated 4 August 2001. As the Resort had
ceased operations since 2000, and as the valuation amount is
conditional, the auditors are unable to ascertain as to whether
the stated carrying value of the Resort as at 30 June 2004 is
recoverable.

(4) As mentioned in Note 14 to the financial statements,
leasehold land held for development by a subsidiary, Langkasuka
Marina Development Sdn. Bhd., with the carrying value of RM620
million as at 30 June 2003, relates to a reclamation and
development project in Pulau Langkawi, Kedah. The development
activity on the project had been suspended since previous years
pending availability of funds, and the Company is currently
assessing the viability of the project. A valuation was
performed on the above land on 26 June 2004 based on the
Comparison Method. However, due to the significance of the asset
to the financial statements as a whole and the uncertainty
regarding its recoverability, the auditors consider that it
should be brought to the shareholders' attention.

(5) Included in the trade and other receivables of the Group and
of the Company are amounts due from Mashyur Mutiara Sdn. Bhd.
and Accruvest Hotel Management Sdn. Bhd. amounting to RM17.6
million and RM12.8 million respectively as at 30 June 2004.
These companies are amongst the companies or hotel companies to
be acquired by the Company as disclosed in Note 30 to the
financial statements. At the date of this report, the amounts
due from Mashyur Mutiara Sdn. Bhd. and Accruvest Hotel
Management Sdn. Bhd. amounted to RM16.5 million and RM12.3
million respectively. No provision for doubtful recovery has
been made in the financial statements on the balance of these
amounts as the directors are of the opinion that these amounts
are recoverable. However, in view of the relatively small amount
of repayment by these companies to-date, the auditors are unable
to ascertain the recoverability of these debts.

(6) Included in the financial statements of the Company are
amounts due from its subsidiaries, namely Ekran Holdings
(Philippines) Inc. and Ekran Project Management Sdn. Bhd. of
RM132.5 million and RM239.6 million respectively as at 30 June
2004. Ekran Holdings (Philippines) Inc. is the owner of the
Samal Casino Resort, which is referred to in item 3 above. The
financial statements as at 30 June 2004 of these companies
reflected shareholders' deficits. The directors are of the
opinion that no provision for doubtful recovery is required as
the amounts are recoverable. However, the auditors are unable to
obtain sufficient appropriate audit evidence as to the
recoverability of these debts.

(7) As disclosed in Note 13 to the financial statements, the
audited financial statements for the years ended 30 June 2004
and 2003 of a subsidiary, Sino Malaysia Art and Culture Co.
Limited, have not been made available to us as at the date of
this report. The Group has used the unaudited management
financial statements of this subsidiary as at 30 June 2004 and
2003 in the preparation of the consolidated financial
statements. The aggregate summary of the unaudited financial
positions as at 30 June 2004 and 2003 and the results and cash
flows of this subsidiary for the years then ended, included in
the Group's consolidated financial statements, are disclosed in
Note 13 to the financial statements. The auditors have not been
able to obtain sufficient appropriate audit evidence regarding
the financial statements of this subsidiary that have been
included in the consolidated financial statements.

In view of the significance of the matters as stated above, the
auditors are unable to form an opinion as to whether the
financial statements of the Company have been prepared in
accordance with the provisions of the Companies Act, 1965 and
applicable Approved Accounting Standards in Malaysia as to give
a true and fair view of:

1. The financial position of the Group and of the Company as at
30 June 2004 and of the results and the cash flows of the Group
and of the Company for the year then ended; and

2. The matters required by Section 169 of the Companies Act,
1965 to be dealt with in the financial statements.

FORESWOOD GROUP: SC Rejects Debt Restructuring Proposal
-------------------------------------------------------
Foreswood Group Berhad (FGB) refers to its announcements dated
21 July 2003, 20 January 2004, 19 March 2004 and 12 July 2004 in
relation to the Proposed Corporate Debt Restructuring Scheme of
the Company.

On behalf of FGB, Public Merchant Bank Berhad announced that the
Securities Commission (SC) had vided its letter dated 8 November
2004, which was received on 10 November 2004, informed that the
application made by FGB in relation to the Proposed Corporate
and Debt Restructuring Scheme has been rejected based on the
following reasons:

(i) the Proposed Corporate and Debt Restructuring Scheme is not
comprehensive.

The SC is of the view that the Proposed Corporate and Debt
Restructuring Scheme of FGB submitted to the SC is not
comprehensive based on the following factors:

(a) After the implementation of the said scheme, FGB still has
accumulated losses amounting to RM57.5 million which is only
expected to be fully written down in the financial year ending
31 December 2013 based on the assumption that FGB is able to
achieve projected profit after tax as per the submission;

(b) FGB is only able to show positive cash flow from operating
activities commencing from the financial year 2006 after the
implementation of the said scheme;

(c) FGB will still be with interest payments on a total of RM20
million term loan which is to be restructured into a six-(6)
year term loan at an interest rate of 7% per annum; and

(d) there is a high probability that the future income of FGB
would not be able to support the enlarged share capital
(following the conversion of loans stocks and warrants into new
ordinary shares) in view that the proposed scheme does not
involve injection of new income generating assets and there are
also concerns on whether the existing business of FGB can be
restored to its expected level; and

(ii) the proposed two-call rights issue of FGB will create new
securities which is not represented by assets.

As at 30 June 2004, FGB has a deficit shareholders' funds
amounting to RM253 million. This means that the issued and paid
up share capital of FGB amounting to RM57.1 million and the
share premium of FGB amounting to RM49.5 million is no longer
represented by assets. Therefore, the second call for the
proposed rights issue of FGB which shall be capitalized from the
share premium amounting to RM28.6 million will create new
securities that are no longer represented by assets.

Following the abovementioned decision by the SC, the Board of
Directors of FGB intends to appeal to the SC to reconsider its
decision.

SAFEGUARDS CORPORATION: Seeks To Scrap Winding Up Petition
----------------------------------------------------------
Further to the announcements made on 9 November 2004 regarding
the Winding-Up Petition filed by Rampai Town Centre Sdn Bhd
(RTC), the Board of Directors of Safeguards Corporation Berhad
announced that an application to strike out the winding-up
Petition has been filed at the Shah Alam High Court accompanied
by a Certificate of Urgency.

Safeguards have also through their solicitors given notice to
RTC's solicitors that Safeguards have filed an application to
strike out the Petition and that Safeguards have on 10 November
2004 deposited a banker's cheque in the sum of RM306,898.02 with
Safeguards' solicitors to be held by Safeguards' solicitors as
stakeholders pending the determination of RTC's disputed claim
in the Civil Court.

Safeguards is of the view that the Winding-Up Petition is
scandalous and/or an abuse of process for the following reasons:

(i) RTC and one Rampai Estates Development Sdn Bhd (RED) had
filed a Summons in Kuala Lumpur Sessions No. 6-52-12492-2003
(said Summons) against Safeguards and thereafter applied for
Summary Judgment therein for RM123,296.15 for inter-alia
maintenance charges and overdue interest.

(ii) After Safeguards filed their Defence and Affidavit to
oppose the application for Summary Judgment, RTC and RED
withdrew their application for Summary Judgment and Summons on
27 September 2004 with liberty to file afresh and were ordered
to pay Safeguards costs of RM1,000/- for defending the Summons.

(iii) Meanwhile, RTC had by a demand dated 8 July 2004
purporting to be under Section 218 of the Companies Act served
on one of Safeguards' subsidiary, namely Safeguards Securicor
Sdn Bhd (SS) on 28 July 2004, the receipt of which was
purportedly acknowledged by a clerk of Safeguards.

(iv) However, the fact that a Section 218 Notice dated 8 July
2004 was addressed to Safeguards but "chopped" received by SS on
28 July 2004 was not brought to the attention of the Directors
of Safeguards until 9 November 2004 when the Winding-Up Petition
was received by Safeguards at 3:30 in the afternoon.

(v) The Directors of Safeguards were only alerted of the
existence of the Winding-up Petition after the advertisement of
the Winding-Up Petition appeared in the New Straits Times on 9
November 2004.

(vi) The Winding-Up Petition was only served at 3:30 p.m. on 9
November 2004, i.e. AFTER the advertisement appeared in the New
Straits Times.

(vii) Safeguards has since appointed solicitors and has
immediately filed an application in Court on 10 November 2004 to
strike out the winding-up Petition as being scandalous,
frivolous, vexatious and/or an abuse of process in view of the
fact that RTC's claim is disputed by Safeguards.

(viii) Safeguards has also informed RTC's solicitors that
Safeguards has deposited a banker's cheque in the sum of
RM306,898.02 with Safeguards' solicitors to be held as
stakeholders pending the determination of the dispute with RTC
by the Civil Court.

(ix) Safeguards wish to state for the record that RTC has failed
to filed any fresh Summons let alone obtained any judgment after
RTC had withdrawn their Summons and application for Summary
Judgment in the Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court.

(x) Currently, RTC has failed to settle the costs of RM1,000/-
ordered by the Kuala Lumpur Sessions Court to be paid to
Safeguards.

(xi) Safeguards has also been advised by their solicitors that
in view of the fact that:

a. RTC's claim is highly disputable;
b. RTC has no judgment to ground its Winding-Up Petition;

The Winding-Up Petition would very likely be struck out by the
High Court.

Berhad announced that the Company was classified as an affected

The College Assurance Plans Philippines Inc. (CAP) will continue
to manifest filing deficiencies, which hampers the processing of
the its application for the renewal of its dealer's license,
ABS-CBN News reports, citing the Securities and Exchange
Commission (SEC).

The commission said the real-estate properties of the pre-need
firm in Quezon and Cavite lacked the proper transfer of land
titles to the name of the new subscribers. The SEC added that
the said properties likewise lacked the stamp of the Registry of
Deeds.

The Quezon properties were infused to the trust fund of CAP
through local property investor Romeo Roxas, who owns Green
Square Property Corp. and Green Circle Corp.

The local property developer would subscribe to Php6 billion
worth of shares in exchange for the infusion of a 3,000-hectare
property into CAP's trust fund. The fund infusion from these
properties is expected to ease the trust fund's Php17.1-billion
shortfall.

The Cavite properties on the other hand came from the real-
estate development arm of the Sobrepena-led Fil-Estate Group of
Companies. Fil-Estate Land Inc. (FELI) earlier subscribed to
common and preferred shares of CAP in exchange of its multiple
properties in Cavite.

CAP currently does not have a dealer's license after their
contract lapsed last September 30 but are still continuing
operations to service existing plans.

COLLEGE ASSURANCE: Expects to Pay PhP15.5 Mln For Capital Hike
--------------------------------------------------------------
College Assurance Plans Philippines, Inc. (CAP) is expected to
pay PhP15.5 million in filing fee for its planned application to
increase its capital stock to Php8 billion from Php300 million,
reports the Business World.

The pre-need firm has not yet been allowed to make its filing
for its application to increase its capital stock because the
Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has seen some
"deficiencies" in the documents it presented.

The Company needs to increase its capital stock to accommodate
the planned investments of prospective investors. It also needs
the approval of the SEC for the increase in capital stock in
relation to its petition to sell an additional PhP1 billion
worth of plans and its request to have its dealer's license
renewed.


MANILA ELECTRIC: May Separate Units To Boost Results
----------------------------------------------------
The Manila Electric Co (Meralco)'s plan to divide its power and
non-power related businesses would result in a higher income for
the power distributor, according to the Business World, citing
an unnamed official of a top accounting firm.


"This will be especially true if the other units are losing. By
unloading these units and not resorting to a consolidated
financial statement, then Meralco will be shielded from its
losses," the source said.

But with the expected reporting of higher revenues, the Company
will also be subject to higher tax payments.

Meralco has said it will submit to the Energy Regulatory
Commission (ERC) before yearend its plan to break up its power
and non-power related businesses in compliance with the law
restructuring the power sector.

Among the utility's subsidiaries 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

WEE POH: High Court Orders AGM To Be Convened On Dec 2

Wee Poh Holdings Limited is pleased to announce that, upon
application by the Company's lawyers, the High Court has ruled
earlier today that:

(i) The Ninth Annual General Meeting sought to be convened by
Chew Eu Hock on November 12, 2004 is instead to be convened on

(ii) The injunction taken out by Chew Yin What on November 5,

Company, is suspended until the Ninth Annual General Meeting;
therefore, Mr. Chandra Mohan is at liberty to function as a
Director of the Company.


WEE POH: Releases Media Response
--------------------------------
Wee Poh Holdings Limited released media response concerning the
alleged tampered proxy forms at the Singapore Stock Exchange on
November 10, 2004.

As a responsible corporate body, Wee Poh Holdings Limited wants
to wait until the independent auditor Ferrier Hodgson had
completed its investigation of proxy forms before the AGM is
convened.

So far, Wee Poh has discovered more irregularities with other
five proxy forms deposited with Wee Poh by Mr Chew Yin What.

This is in addition to the forged proxy form discovered before
the last AGM on 29 October 2004, which was already being
investigated by the CAD.

These five proxy forms, representing approximately 13.6 million
shares, were also found to be tampered with. The five
shareholders had given Wee Poh's Chairman, Mr. Wong Teck
Kui, the discretion to vote but these proxy forms had been
tampered to direct the Chairman to vote in a certain way. The
Company has every intention to refer these further
irregularities to the police.

In the meantime, Ferrier Hodgson is continuing its own
investigation.
