CHEMEQ LIMITED: Still Seeking APVMA Approval
--------------------------------------------
Chemeq Limited announced yesterday its West Australian
manufacturing facility has obtained a Manufacturing Practice
license from the Australian Pesticides & Veterinary Authority
(APVMA) but said a regulatory approval of its polymeric
antimicrobial in Australia would be delayed beyond June 2005,
says Egoli News.

The long-awaited approval would enable Chemeq to produce
commercial validation batches of polymeric antimicrobial, which
if granted by the APVMA, can then be used to fill the Company's
AU$1.5 million order to South Africa.

"We are one step away from an unconditional manufacturing
license and we are now very close to being in a position to
deliver Chemeq polymeric antimicrobial under the distribution
and sales agreements we already have in place," said Chemeq
chairman Graham Melrose.

According to the APVMA, it gave the conditional approval to
Chemeq since the Company has met a majority of the good
manufacturing practice requirements. However, the regulator said
it couldn't be fully satisfied until the product validation
batches have been completed.

"If the APVMA is satisfied from the from the verification
process audit that all systems are operating effectively, an
amended license will be issued removing those additional
conditions and including "release for supply" as a step of
manufacture," the regulator said.

NATIONAL AUSTRALIA: HBOS Drops Plan to Buy Irish Banks
------------------------------------------------------
Bank HBOS withdrew from talks to buy National Australia Bank's
(NAB) two Irish banks, Reuters report, citing the Financial
Times.

HBOS is understood to have shelved its acquisition plan after
failing to agree on a price for Belfast-based Northern Bank and
Dublin's National Irish Bank.

HBOS and National Australia Bank declined to comment yesterday
night. However, sources close to the deal indicated that the
British bank regarded National's price expectations as "a step
too far".

All talks between the two companies are now off, although they
could resume if National drops the price.

Unless this happens, HBOS will pursue its stated ambition of
expanding its Irish operations through organic growth.

NATIONAL AUSTRALIA: Union Wants Lay-off Report Clarification
------------------------------------------------------------
National Australia Bank's union is seeking to meet with the
bank's management on reports it is to sack 300 IT personnel in a
bid to cut costs, according to The Advertiser.

A news report yesterday said NAB was planning to significantly
reduce its IT workforce in the wake of more than AU$400 million
worth of software write-offs. Earlier, NAB announced the
suspension of work on its back office IT system, Integration
Systems Implementation (ISI).

The reports said NAB was also considering shelving its division-
oriented approach to IT and replace it with a regional
structure.

Financial Sector Union spokesman Rod Massen confirmed the union
was seeking a meeting yesterday with the bank to clarify the
reports.

According to Mr. Massen, the union was dismayed to see NAB
moving to scrap jobs in its IT division.

INDOFOOD SUKSES: Unit Eyes Rights Issue After Spin-off
------------------------------------------------------
Bogasari Flour Mills, a subsidiary of embattled instant noodle
giant Indofood Sukses, is planning a rights issue after its
spin-off process is completed in the second quarter of 2005,
Asia Pulse says.

The rights issuance will follow immediately after next year's
spin-off, which will give Bogasari the status of an independent
Company.

According to Indofood Director Djoko Wibowo, Bogasari will offer
at least 10 percent of shares to the public.

* Three Listed Firms Face JSX Suspension
----------------------------------------
Shares of textile companies PT Panasia Indosyntec (Indosyntec)
and PT Panasia Filamnet Inti (Pafi), and furniture maker PT
Atona Binasejati were suspended from trading at the Jakarta
Stock Exchange Friday, says The Jakarta Post.

The bourse halted trading of the textile companies for unpaid
fines amounting to IDR10 million (US$1,102) each, which were
imposed for failing to hold an annual public expose in 2003. The
fines should have been paid within 25 days after the sanctions
were officially handed down on October 27.

Trading in Arona shares was also suspended for a day after the
bourse discovered a cumulative rise in its stock price of over
100 percent from IDR550 on October 13 to IDR1,150 on November
11.

For the first nine months of the year, Pafi tallied an IDR37.7
billion net loss, while Indosyntec booked a net loss of IDR46.7
billion.

Arona, on the other hand, reported a net income of IDR3.67
billion from January to September, down 22.3 percent from the
same period last year.

JAPAN AIRLINES: Reviews Routes, May Change Fleet to Cut Costs
-------------------------------------------------------------
Japan Airlines Corporation is currently evaluating the
profitability of its routes and is likely to change models and
sizes of its fleet in a bid to reduce costs amid soaring fuel
prices, according to Bloomberg.

"I don't expect a big drop in the price of fuel any time soon,"
said President Toshiyuki Shinmachi.

Without elaborating, Mr. Shinmachi confirmed JAL is working on
measures to cut costs.

With its fuel bill rising to JPY5 billion for US$1 gain in jet
fuel prices, JAL's extra fuel expenses may double to JPY100
billion (US$934 million) for the current fiscal year from JPY55
billion, previously. Thus, the carrier is desperate for ways to
cut more costs to protect its earnings.

Earlier this month, JAL trimmed down its full-year earnings
forecast by more than a third to JPY23 billion for the year
ending March 2005 due to surging oil costs and plunging travel
demand.

According to pricing service Platts, jet fuel prices have
skyrocketed as much as two-thirds this year to a record US$63.95
a barrel on October 14.

MITSUBISHI HEAVY: Moody's Reviews Ratings for Possible Upgrade
--------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has placed the Baa1 senior unsecured
debt ratings of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd. under review
for possible upgrade.

This rating action is based on Moody's view that the Company's
successful execution of its current business strategy may
contribute to improving and stabilizing its overall credit
profile over the intermediate term.

Mitsubishi Heavy is currently implementing the 2004 Medium-Term
Business Plan (a four-year management plan beginning April 1,
2004). Under the plan, the Company has been striving to enhance
profitability and reinforce its business portfolio. Furthermore,
Mitsubishi Heavy has continued to expand and strengthen its
overseas business activities.

In its review, Moody's will assess Mitsubishi Heavy's ability to
enhance and stabilize earnings through the implementation of its
current business strategy, as well as the Company's ability to
manage the risks of its growing overseas businesses. The review
will also focus on the Company's financial strategy going
forward.

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, Ltd., headquartered in Tokyo, Japan
is one of the world's leading comprehensive heavy machinery
companies.

MITSUBISHI MOTORS: Tampers With Wheel Hub Report
------------------------------------------------
Ailing Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) submitted to the
Construction and Transport Ministry a falsified data on wheel
hubs produced by other automakers in an attempt to show they
were of lower quality compared to Mitsubishi products, relates
The Yomiuri Shimbun.

The embattled automaker allegedly made the fake report to evade
expected recalls following an accident caused by a faulty wheel
hub on a Mitsubishi truck.

The ministry alleged MMC used old parts or falsified data on
wheel hub size and materials in its comparison report.

After a comparative experiment on its own D-type wheel hub and
wheel hubs made by its rivals, MMC concluded that the strength
of Nissan Diesel and Isuzu wheel hubs was less than that of the
D-type by 7 percent and 2 percent, respectively.

However, an experiment conducted by the ministry revealed
otherwise. The ministry test showed that wheel hubs produced by
other automakers are stronger by at least 27 percent, concluding
that the MMC wheel hub was, in fact, the weakest.

In March, the Company finally admitted its wheel hubs were
defective and recalled about 220,000 large trucks.

However, only 56 percent of the trucks subject to recall had
been repaired as of Nov. 6.

MITSUBISHI MOTORS: Cuts Likely for N. American Parts Suppliers
--------------------------------------------------------------
Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) is considering cutting its
parts suppliers for its North American production facility by 40
percent from 260 to 150 next year, AFX News relates, citing the
Nihon Keizai Shimbun.

The plan is part of the troubled carmaker's measures to cut
costs, as sales in North America are rapidly plunging.

After the reduction is realized, MMC will consolidate orders
with major parts companies.

MMC's North American plant in Normal, Illinois, which produces
four MMC vehicles, also provides subcontracted production for
the Chrysler division of DaimlerChrysler AG.

The subcontracted work will end in 2005 and MMC will completely
revamp two models of its Eclipse sports coupe, which would allow
the firm to focus procurement on a smaller number of
manufacturers.

The plant in Normal in October laid off 1,200 employees or
nearly 40 percent of its workforce and ended its night shift.


SEIBU RAILWAY: Vows to Revamp Structural Operations
---------------------------------------------------
Seibu Railway Company has pledged to overhaul the group's odd
operational structure led by the controversial Kokudo
Corporation, reports Dow Jones Newswires.

The scandal-hit railway operator will map out a revamp plan that
will be carried out by the end of the business year and
determine by June how the group would be restructured.

The Tokyo Stock Exchange (TSE) has warned Seibu Railway of a
possible delisting from the bourse's First Section because its
financial statements underreported the shareholdings of such
major holders such as unlisted hotel and sports facilities
operator Kokudo for over four decades.

Earlier, the Nihon Keizai Shimbun reported that the TSE has
finalized plans to delist Seibu Railway. But the bourse denied
the news article, saying it hadn't made a decision on the
matter.

The railway Company is hoping to maintain its listing, which is
essential for the Company to raise funds and gain social trust.

As part of its restructuring, Seibu Railway will slash Kokudo's
stake in the firm to around 33 percent from more than 50 percent
so it can gain more autonomy.

Seibu Railway President Terumasa Koyanagi disclosed Seibu
Railway will set up on November 22 an advisory team to draft the
firm's restructuring plan.

Even if its three main creditors have pledged their support for
the group's restructuring, Mr. Koyanagi said Seibu Railway is
not planning to ask its lenders for financial aid such as debt
waivers.

* Corporate Bankruptcies Drop 23.3%
-----------------------------------
Teikoku Databank America revealed the number of corporate
bankruptcies in Japan dipped 23.3 percent from the same period
last month, marking the second consecutive month of decline
according to the Associated Press.

The private research agency said corporate bankruptcies for the
month totaled 1,064, the lowest this year.

According to Teikoku, the drop was not mainly due to economic
recovery but was attributed to government's assistance to help
save small companies from bankruptcy.

Debts left behind by collapsing companies fell 20 percent from a
year earlier to JPY680.4 billion (US$6.4 billion), it said.


* FSA Reveals Results of Special Inspections

completed with notification of inspection results to individual

(3) Method of Examination: As in the previous rounds of the

of large borrowers whose stock prices, external ratings and
other indicators had been experiencing significant changes, at a
respective main bank to obtain appropriate classification which

time basis.

borrowers' reconstruction plans in cooperation with the special
inspection team. The results of the examination have been
reflected in the classification of borrowers.

The number of borrowers inspected in the special inspections for
the interim period ending March 2004 was originally 133 (with

147 due to corporate separation, etc.

DAEWOO HEAVY: Union Workers to Hold Rally Over Doosan Takeover
--------------------------------------------------------------
Daewoo Heavy Industries & Machinery Limited workers union will
stage a rally this week to protest on the acquisition of the
Company by Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction Co., reports
Asia Pulse, citing industry sources.

Following the selection of Doosan as the preferred bidder for a
58 percent controlling stake in Daewoo, the unionized workers
would gather in front of the Gwacheon Government Complex, south
of Seoul, Thursday, the sources said.  Some 4,000 workers are
expected to be present in the rally.

The union has expressed objection over Doosan, on the basis that
Doosan does not value job security.  The workers fear the
takeover would lead to massive job cuts, despite Doosan's claim
that it would keep Daewoo as an independent entity and retain
all employees for three years if the acquisition goes ahead.

Doosan offered the highest bid of KRW1.8 trillion.  A final
contract for the takeover is expected signed in December between
the Korea Asset Management Corp. (KAMCO) and Doosan.  KAMCO
manages the sale of Daewoo Heavy.

KOOKMIN BANK: Lowers Deposit Interest Rate to 3.4%
--------------------------------------------------
Following the interest rate cut done by the Bank of Korea,
Kookmin Bank lowered its interest rate on deposits Monday, The
Korea Times relates.

A 0.1 percentage point was lowered on Kookmin's interests on
time deposits which was previously 3.5 percent.  The new
interest rate on one-year time deposits stands at 3.4 percent.

Other banks are expected to follow suit.  Woori Bank, for
instance, said it will cut its time deposit rates by 0.2
percentage points.  Other lenders are also expected to cut
interest rates on new deposits.

The central bank lowered its key interest rate to a record low
of 3.25 percent, a quarter of one percentage cut from the
previous rate. The move was in line with its effort to help
boost the economy.

* MOFE Voices Concern Over Troubled Credit Card Companies
---------------------------------------------------------
The Ministry of Finance and Economy (MOFE) plan to force

of a merger, reports The Korea Times.

MOFE sends out this warning in order for card companies to speed
up restructuring in order to solve the credit card problems that
dented the financial market and the economy.

recuperate from credit card woes.

According to the MOFE, it will submit a revised bill for the
nation's credit card and financial sectors if necessary as part
of steps to facilitate the restructuring of card companies.

WEMBLEY INDUSTRIES: Issues Practice Note 4/2001 Update
------------------------------------------------------
Wembley Industries Holdings Berhad announced the status of
Practice Note 4/2001 (PN4) of the Bursa Malaysia Securities
Berhad listing requirements for November 2004.

1. PN4

On 23 February 2001, the Company announced to Bursa Malaysia
Securities Berhad (the Exchange) that the Company is an affected
listed issuer pursuant to Practice Note No. 4/2001 (PN4) as the
Auditors of the Company had expressed a disclaimer opinion of
the going concern of the Company and its subsidiaries. As an
affected listed issuer, the Company has its obligations under
PN4.

1.2 The Requisite Announcement as required under PN4 was made to
the Exchange on 31 July 2002.

1.3 The applications for its regularization plan were submitted
to the Securities Commission (SC) and Foreign Investment
Committee (FIC) on 29 October 2002.

On 7 January 2003, the FIC approved the Company's regularization
plan. Subsequently, on 7 April 2003 the FIC revised its approval
to include the possible participation of Daewoo Corporation, the
former turnkey contractor of Plaza Rakyat Project in the
Proposed Debt Restructuring. As a result, the approval of FIC
now includes the approval for the additional RM112 million ICULS
and 11.2 million warrants to be issued to Daewoo Corporation (in
the event Daewoo participates in the Proposed Debt
Restructuring). The condition that the FIC would review the
equity structure of the WIHB shares 3 year after the completion
of the proposals remains the same. The revised approval
supercedes the approval dated 7 January 2003.

On 27 January 2003, the SC approved the regularization plan
subject to the conditions as set out in the SC's approval letter
dated the same. The details of the SC's conditions are set out
in the Company's announcement dated 5 February 2003.

On 13 January 2004, Alliance Merchant Bank Berhad (Alliance)

On 16 January 2004, the SC further approved an extension of time
of one (1) year to 27 January 2005 for the Company to complete
the implementation of its regularization plan following an
application made by Alliance.

On 12 March 2004, Alliance announced on behalf of the Company

3.0 OTHER MATTERS IN RESPECT OF PRACTICE NOTE NO. 10/2001 (PN10)

3.1 On 7 September 2001, the Company announced to the Exchange
that the Company is deemed an affected listed issuers pursuant
to paragraph 2.1(c) of PN10. Under paragraph 2.1(c) of PN10, a
listed issuer, who has insignificant business or operations, is
deemed to have inadequate level of operations. Insignificant
business or operations means business or operations, which
generates revenue on a consolidated basis that represents 5 % or
less of the issued and paid up share capital of the listed
issuer.

3.2 As an affected listed issuer under PN10, the Company must
comply with the obligations set out in paragraph 6 of PN10. The
Exchange has informed the Company that since the Company is also
an affected listed issuer under PN4, the requirements and
obligations of PN4 would prevail over those of PN10. It is
expected that the Company's regularization plan would address
both its financial condition (PN4) and the level of operations
(PN10) to warrant a continuing listing on the Official List.

BAYAN TELECOMMUNICATIONS: Says Extelcom Still Viable
----------------------------------------------------
Bayan Telecommunications Philippines Inc. (BayanTel) will
continue to look for ways to revive its ailing cellular unit
Express Telecom (Extelcom) even as this has already been written
off from the Company's books, ABS-CBN News reports, citing Chief
Consultant Tunde Fafunwa.

BayanTel Chief Finance Officer Salvador Tirona believes that
Extelcom is still attractive to investors because it has the
technical resources to run a cellular mobile telephone system
(CMTS) network.

Express Telecom is currently working on the restructuring of its
Php1.2-billion loan with three creditor banks.

BayanTel said revenues for next year would increase by 10
percent to about P6 billion to be driven by strong sales from
its fixed-line, international long distance and data services.

BAYAN TELECOMMUNICATIONS: Seeks To Defer Initial Public Offering
----------------------------------------------------------------
Bayan Telecommunications, Inc. (BayanTel) has asked the
government to defer any plans of requiring the Company to
undertake an initial public offering (IPO) due to its current
unfavorable financial situation, reports the Philippine Star.

The Corporate Rehabilitation Court earlier approved its debt
restructuring, which allows the firm to pay for its US$325
million debt for a period of 19 years.

This year, BayanTel is projecting a negative bottom line,
although EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation
and amortization) is seen growing by 45 percent compared to last
year, and net revenue increasing eight percent to Php5.4
billion.


MANILA ELECTRIC: Forecasts Php2.5-Bln Profit This Year
------------------------------------------------------
The Manila Electric Co. (Meralco) is expecting a net income of
more than Php2.5 billion this year, the Philippine Daily
Inquirer reports.

This is on the back of energy sales growth of 4.2 percent from
January to October, compared with 3.8 percent in January to
September. Industrial and commercial power sales registered the
biggest growth.

Starting this month, Meralco rates will go up to Php4.57 from
Php3.50 per kWh to reflect the increase in the National Power
Corporation (Napocor) charges.

According to a previous TCR-AP report, Meralco said that it
would have to be more efficient in operations to counter the
liquidity crunch caused by the Court-ordered refunds to users.
The power distributor had estimated the refund to cost some
PhP30 billion.

NATIONAL POWER: Aboitiz Group Rethinks Plan to Bid For Plant
------------------------------------------------------------
The Aboitiz group may not participate in this month's bidding
for the 600-megawatt Masinloc coal-fired power plant with the
government sticking to its decision not to guarantee that the
winning bidder will have buyers of power from the plant, ABS-CBN
News reports.

Aboitiz Equity Ventures Executive Vice President and Chief
Operating Officer Erramon Aboitiz said the Company is not keen
on the fact Masinloc would be sold without any power sale
contract.

"We are debating whether we will participate. We are a little
uncomfortable about the fact that the plant will come without a
transition supply contract. While the WESM (wholesale
electricity spot market) is not yet developed, we feel that it
might be too much of a risk at this point in time to bid for
plants which do not have contract," Mr. Aboitiz said.

Aboitiz said it might be too risky to acquire Masinloc when
there is no assured market for the power it would be generating.

NATIONAL POWER: Government To Assume PhP200 Bln In Bonds
--------------------------------------------------------
The Philippine government will assume PhP200 billion in
government-guaranteed bond issues of the National Power
Corporation (Napocor), the Business World reports, citing Energy
Secretary Vincent Perez.

The Department of Finance and the Department of Budget and
Management have already finalized the decision, Mr. Perez says.

The move is considered a necessary step to complete the sale of
Napocor assets. The Power Sector Assets and Liabilities
Management Corporation has auctioned five Napocor hydroelectric
power plants but has yet to transfer these plants to the winning
bidders because it lacked creditors' consent.

THAI PETROCHEMICAL: To Name New Partners Next Month
---------------------------------------------------
Thai Petrochemical Industry Public Company Limited's (TPI) new
strategic partners will be named within one month, reports the
Bangkok Post.

The details of the new strategic partners as well as the details
on TPI's 17-billion-share offering including pricing and
placement, will be finalized over the next month, Suparut
Kawatkul, a permanent secretary at the Finance Ministry said.

As part of its new debt-restructuring plan, TPI will offer new
shares to new investors, creditors and existing shareholders,
including its founder Prachai Leophairatana.

The proceeds of the new share offering will be used to pay off
$900 million in debt, to be comprised of 12 billion in new
shares and five billion in existing shares currently held by
creditors.

After the capital restructuring, the remaining debt of $1.8
billion will be repaid over a 10-12 year period.

The restructuring plan calls for TPI to first write down capital
to offset existing losses, and sell off 240 million shares now
held by cement producer TPI Polene. Funds from the share sale
will be used to repay debts of $250 million.

PTT Plc was expected to take management control of TPI after the
share offering, but the Company had not yet submitted the
conditions regarding its investment in TPI, Mr. Suparut said.

THAI PETROCHEMICAL: SET Posts Notice Pending Sign on Securities
---------------------------------------------------------------
Thai Petrochemical Industry Public Company Limited (TPI) has
submitted to the Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) its reviewed
financial statements for the period ending 30 September 2004.

As the Company's auditor was unable to reach any conclusion on
the financial statements, it can be considered that the numbers,
which represent the Company's financial status and operating
outcome as presented in its financial statements, failed to
adequately and/or properly reflect the actual position of the
Company.

Due to these discrepancies, the Securities and Exchange
Commission (SEC) considered requiring the Company to amend its
financial statements on the issues raised by its auditor.

Therefore, the SET has posted an SP (Suspension) sign to suspend
trading on the securities of TPI on 16 November 2004 to enable
shareholders and general investors to have sufficient time to
scrutinize an auditor's report on the review of its financial
statements including the Company's clarification.

The SET will grant the above Company permission to continue
trading its securities and post an NP (Notice Pending) sign on
17 November 2004 until the Company has the opportunity to submit
its amended financial statements or the SEC concludes that it
will not be necessary to amend its financial statements.
