JAMES HARDIE: Interim Support Saves MRCF from Liquidation
---------------------------------------------------------
Asbestos victims with legitimate claims will have access to
further funding under new arrangements offered by James Hardie
Industries NV.

Offer of Indemnity to ABN 60

James Hardie Industries NV (JHI NV) announced it has offered an
indemnity to the ABN 60 Foundation directors that should
facilitate the immediate provision by ABN 60 of AU$85 million in
cash being made available to the Medical Research and
Compensation Foundation (together with Amaca Pty Ltd and Amaba
Pty Ltd, MRCF).

The indemnity offered to ABN 60 directors should remove
obstacles perceived by them, and the MRCF, that have previously
stopped the MRCF from drawing on funds available to it through
ABN 60.

This follows public statements made by the MRCF that it requires
additional cash funding to remain solvent.

Additional funding support from JHI NV

In addition to offering the indemnity to ABN 60, James Hardie
has advised the MRCF that, should MRCF's funds prove
insufficient to meet legitimate claims, James Hardie intends to
provide interim funding on a month-to-month basis to enable
those claims to be met. This arrangement would apply for up to 6
months from today while negotiations with the ACTU are being
concluded and necessary approvals are sought.

The interim funding to the MRCF will be provided once the MRCF's
existing sources of funds are exhausted. This would be reviewed
if a provisional liquidator were appointed.

JHI NV Chairman, Meredith Hellicar said the offer of the
indemnity to ABN 60 and the offer of further interim funding to
the MRCF by JHI NV is a positive step forward in ensuring all
legitimate claimants continue to be paid.

"We believe the MRCF now has the security of interim funding to
maintain its role in providing financial support to the victims
and families affected by asbestos related diseases.

"By proposing this arrangement, James Hardie is seeking to
ensure that no-one who is entitled to receive compensation from
the MRCF will go without funding while a long-term solution to
the asbestos compensation issue is being finalized."

Negotiations with the ACTU to reach a solution are progressing.
Negotiations are now focused on how to achieve efficiencies in
the current claims payment processes. The negotiations are
designed to ensure that legitimate asbestos claimants are dealt
with and settled rapidly and that the level of legal and other
administrative costs can be significantly reduced.

JHI NV Chairman Meredith Hellicar said, "The current level of
administrative and legal costs threatens the robustness of any
solution and the security of claimant payments over the long
term."

Once a final agreement has been reached, the proposal will be
put to James Hardie shareholders for consideration.

NATIONAL AUSTRALIA: Clarifies "Job Loss" Report
-----------------------------------------------
National Australia Bank clarified it would not undertake any
massive layoffs this week following a newspaper report that 300
IT workers would be axed as part of its restructuring efforts,
according to The Advertiser.

NAB spokesman Brendan Phillips, however, admitted the bank
disclosed in its profit announcement that it would be
streamlining the corporate center and integrating business in
Australia.

"But that's a work in progress so the numbers in the paper today
are pure speculation."

Mr. Phillips said it was too early to say when the details of
restructuring would be announced.

According to Mr. Phillips, NAB will be restructuring the
leadership teams in the next few weeks.

PRIMELIFE CORPORATION: Unveils Takeover Proposal for Aevum
----------------------------------------------------------
The Board of Directors of Primelife Corporation Limited is
pleased to announce a takeover proposal for soon to be listed
Sydney-based retirement village operator Aevum Limited. Aevum is
scheduled to commence trading on the Australian Stock Exchange
today, November 18, 2004.

The acquisition will be by way of an off market scrip offer by
Primelife for all the shares in Aevum. Primelife intends to
offer Primelife shares at an effective price of AU$1.30 per
Aevum share, representing a premium of about 44 percent over the
Initial Public Offer (IPO) price of AU$0.90. The offer values
Aevum at approximately AU$106.2 million.

The offer will not have a minimum acceptance level condition,
but will be subject to conditions standard for acquisitions of
this type.

Primelife Chairman, Robert Champion de Crespigny, AC, said the
proposed acquisition of Aevum was a significant step that
underscored the strength and focus of Primelife's management
team following the recent restructuring of the Primelife Group.

"The acquisition will be a significant step in the consolidation
of Primelife's position as Australia's pre-eminent provider of
retirement villages and aged care facilities, " Mr. Champion de
Crespigny said.

"It is a clear illustration of the renewed focus and strategic
direction of the Primelife Group.

"The acquisition proposal closely follows the completion of a
restructuring program which involved an AU$80 million
recapitalization, a revitalization of the Board and senior
management and the establishment of strategic relationships with
both Babcock & Brown and Multiplex.

"This Offer is the first step in a broader acquisition and
consolidation program that Primelife intends to pursue over the
coming 24 months. The recent recapitalization has funded
Primelife's existing business plan and Primelife is considering
a new note issue to raise additional funding to accelerate the
broader industry consolidation strategy.

"Primelife has held a number of productive and positive
discussions with Aevum and in those discussions has canvassed
Aevum's Chairman, Mr. Allen Kavanagh, and another colleague
regarding joining the Primelife Board.

"Primelife and Aevum are complementary businesses with a similar
vision for the future of the industry and if Primelife completes
the acquisition of all Aevum shares, it will provide significant
benefits to both sets of shareholders, " Mr. Champion de
Crespigny said.

Primelife Managing Director, Jim Hazel, said the combined
Primelife/Aevum would have greater geographic and operational
diversity.

"The Aevum management team would complement the new Primelife
Group, both in terms of skills and location," Mr. Hazel said.
"In fact, the two groups are so complementary that Primelife has
not included a minimum acceptance condition, but we would like
to think that we will receive acceptances for more than 80% so
that Aevum shareholders will have the opportunity to benefit
from capital gains tax roll over relief.

"For Primelife, the acquisition of Aevum would provide access to
the Sydney market through the Cardinal Freeman Village in
Ashfield, the Lourdes Village in Killara and the Bexley
retirement village.

"At the same time, accepting Aevum shareholders would benefit
from access to Primelife's existing portfolio of development
projects in Victoria, as well as new projects through
Primelife's joint venture with Multiplex and Babcock & Brown.

"The combined businesses would provide accommodation and care to
almost 7,000 Australians across all mainland States. it would
also provide a platform for the continuing consolidation in the
seniors living market in this country."

The bidder's statement with further details of the offer is
expected to be served on Aevum shortly.

Primelife has arranged for Tricom Equities Limited to provide a
cash out facility (at market) for accepting Aevum shareholders
who do not wish to participate future plans for the
consolidation of the industry.

* Former Brighton Director Banned from Managing Corporations
------------------------------------------------------------
The Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC)
banned Mr. Peter David Voss, of Brighton in Victoria, from
managing corporations for two years.

ASIC found that over the past seven years Mr. Voss had been a
director of Bio Engineering Pty Ltd, Stranti Investments Pty Ltd
and Lakeview Estate Pty Ltd. Each of these companies went into
liquidation and the liquidators reported they were unable to pay
their creditors more than 50 cents in the dollar.

ASIC was also concerned that Mr. Voss:

(1) Failed to ensure proper books and records were kept;

(2) Failed to remit statutory liabilities;

(3) Failed to assist the liquidator;

(4) Caused Bio-Engineering to enter into an uncommercial
transaction which had the effect of disposing of its business;
and

(5) Had been convicted of contempt in the Supreme Court of
Victoria.

ASIC believed that in light of the above actions, Mr. Voss'
conduct demonstrated an improper disregard for the interests of
creditors.

The Deputy Executive Director of Enforcement, Mr. Mark Steward
said ASIC took action to prevent Mr. Voss from further misusing
the corporate structure, and in doing so protect the public.

"ASIC will pursue directors of failed companies who disregard
their obligations and we will take action to protect the public
from irresponsible operators," Mr. Steward said.

The decision follows a hearing where Mr. Voss was given the
opportunity to respond to ASIC's concerns.

Mr. Voss has the right to lodge an application for a review of
ASIC's decision with the Administrative Appeals Tribunal.

be strengthened within the next year. A 10% cash recovery amount
growth within the year is targeted.

Measures such as replacing piece-by-piece sale of debts by
bundling debts, equity interests and investment projects for
sale so as to enhance asset disposal value and overall recovery
rate, as well as actively pursuing asset restructuring business,
boosting disposal of low-value assets and enhancing shareholding
management, are planned to be administered.

* Soaring Defaults Hurt Car Loans
---------------------------------
China's commercial banks have joined efforts to collect bad
loans that could be attributed to China's vehicle market,
reports The Standard.

Industrial and Commercial Bank of China (ICBC), China
Construction Bank (CCB), Bank of China (BOC) and the
Agricultural Bank of China said that 81% percent of loans gone
bad are pegged at more than CNY180 billion.

The Big Four banks are now in this predicament due to lack of
adequate credit control. Now the banks are under pressure from
the China Banking Regulatory Commission who has put a clamp on
new car loans.

A restraint has been implemented on car loans in an attempt to
cut back risk. Since September 30 outstanding loans have totaled
CNY160 billion, down by CNY23.3 billion while car sales fell by
7.99% in October. Car production on the other hand slowed down
by 20% in October as compared to the previous month.

The cleaning of the debts would entail two processes: raising
the financial threshold for would-be borrowers and compiling a
unified list of people who have defaulted on loans. Car dealers
are seriously looking to vehicle finance companies to arrange
credit for its clientele. In addition people are now putting off
purchasing a car in anticipation that sticker prices will
continually fall.

ASIA PULP: Greenpeace China Files Illegal Logging Suit
------------------------------------------------------
International environmental group Greenpeace accused Asia Pulp
and Paper Company Limited (APP) of illegal logging in remote
Chinese forests, Reuters reveals.

Greenpeace's China office claimed APP breached Chinese law by
logging natural forests for two years in the Southern province
of Yunnan.

The environmental group, therefore, requested the Chinese
government to suspend APP's projects in Yunnan and conduct all
new assessments of those projects.

However, the pulp and paper Company denied the accusations,
insisting it is operating legally in China and in all countries
it operates.

"We hope and we believe that the Chinese government will look at
these in a fair and objective manner and take the appropriate
action that is necessary," APP's director of sustainability
Adrian Ardie said.

The environmental group said APP was logging natural forests,
not farmed trees as originally proposed, and planting non-native
eucalyptus trees that could cause erosion, trammel local
biodiversity and otherwise damage Yunnan's ecology and economy.

Greenpeace China said it had forwarded its findings to China's
forestry bureau and expected a response from the government
agency in 60 days.

Several environmental organizations have filed lawsuits against
APP for illegal logging in Indonesia, although the Company
denied any misconduct.

But APP announced in late October it was enforcing a moratorium
on tree cutting in two strategic areas of Indonesia until
conservation assessments were completed.

PT TIMAH: Says Current Tin Prices To Stay Despite Strong Demand
---------------------------------------------------------------
Tin miner PT Timah ruled out the possibility of tin prices going
up next year despite higher demand because of rampant illegal
trade of metal, reports The Jakarta Post.

The state-owned firm estimated next year's tin prices to stand
between US$8,000 and US$9,000 per ton, more or less the same as
this year's average. Demand, on the other hand, is expected to
rise by 5 percent to 280,000 tons.

"Illegal tin mining and trading activities by local businessmen
on Bangka island to traders in Singapore will flood the market
with cheap illegal tin, which will eventually halt tin prices
from increasing," Timah finance director Wachid Usman explained.

According to Mr. Wachid, the illegal activities over the past
six years have cost the Company around IDR500 billion (US$55.5
million) in losses.

In addition, the lack of raw tin material due to the widespread
illegal tin mining had caused Timah to lower its production
output this year to about 40,000 tons from 45,906 tons last
year.

Timah had recently reported the matter to the Minister for State
Enterprises Sugiharto, who is expected to discuss the issue with
the Ministry of Home Affairs.

DAIEI INCORPORATED: To Sell Hawks to Softbank for JPY5 Bln
----------------------------------------------------------
Daiei Incorporated has decided to sell its professional baseball
franchise to Softbank Corporation for JPY5 billion (US$47.33
million), Reuters reports.

The embattled retailer, which is seeking to dispose of its
entire 98 percent stake in the Fukuoka Daiei Hawks, had
presented the deal to Japan's professional baseball association
for approval.

U.S. investment fund Colony Capital LLC, which bought the
Fukouka Dome from Daiei and gained rights to sell Hawks tickets
and products, is understood to have a significant role in
determining the terms of the planned divestment of the
professional baseball club.

According to Daiei, Colony obtained the right to "recommend" a
buyer for the Hawks for JPY5 billion if the ailing retailer
opted to dispose of the team.

Daiei believed the set price is a fair evaluation of the of the
operations value, given the fact that the team loses around JPY1
billion annually.

Meanwhile, representatives of professional baseball clubs
decided to delay the new Hawks entry into the baseball community
until the end of January, from the original schedule of November
30, as the transfer process of the team from Daiei to Softbank
will take time.

R&I RATING: A

RATIONALE:

In the growth area of computer system construction, Fujitsu Ltd.
holds Japan's leading competitive position. R&I gives positive
recognition to its operational structure in this business which
is steadily generating profits.

On the other hand, Fujitsu also has businesses that can be
considered non-core and structural reforms in this area are
incomplete. Downward pressure on the rating continues. Moreover,
in view of the Company's insufficient reserves for retirement
benefit liabilities and operating loss carry forwards for tax
purposes, R&I believes that it is essential for Fujitsu to
accumulate profits by withdrawing from businesses that are
unprofitable and accelerating business cooperation with other
companies. At the same time, the Company must attempt to bolster
its profits and increase equity capital through the sale of
shares and other assets and through capital increases.

KUMAGAI GUMI: Scraps Planned Merger with Tobishima
--------------------------------------------------
Embattled construction firms Kumagai Gumi Company and Tobishima
Corporation shelved plans to merge in April next year due to the
high cost of integrating operations, says The Japan Times.

Both firms decided to scrap the merger plan, which was announced
12 months ago, after concluding the costs of combining computer
systems and personnel cuts would be bigger than expected.

Kumagai Gumi President Kazutoshi Torikai and Tobishima President
Yoshiharu Tomimatsu told reporters they decided the companies
wouldn't be able to benefit from the merger.

The contractors began experiencing financial woes after the
collapse of the bubble economy in the early 1990s.

While seeking to revive their businesses with the support of its
major lenders, the two firms agreed in April 2003 to merger,
possibly under a holding Company. Seven months later they
decided to seek a merger in view of the shrinking construction
market.

Last fiscal year Kumagai Gumi recorded a group net profit of
JPY280.21 billion and a pretax profit of JPY2.78 billion on
sales of JPY341.74 billion.

In the same year, Tobishima tallied a group net loss of JPY4.18
billion but booked a JPY3.50 billion pretax profit on sales of
JPY209.20 billion.

SAGAMI RAILWAY: JCR Affirms BBB on Bonds

Japan Credit Rating Agency Limited (JCR) has affirmed the BBB
ratings on the bonds of Sagami Railway Co., Ltd.

bonds no.8    JPY10       Apr. 26, 2000  Apr. 26, 2010  2.525%

Rationale:

Sagami Railway announced last year that it would change its
corporate structure into a holding Company structure. It
hammered out policies to intensively allocate the management
resources to area around Yokohama Station West Exit and the
areas along the railway line extended to central part of
Kanagawa Prefecture. It also set out a drastic cost reduction
plan and a cutback on the interest-bearing debt.

Sagami Railway plans to increase the pretax profit before
extraordinary items to JPY12.3 billion and the interest-bearing
debt/EBITDA to 9 times for fiscal 2006 ending March 31, 2007.
The earnings power of the group as a whole is now on the rise,
supported by reduced loss from Yokohama Bay Sheraton Hotel and
Towers and restructuring. Cost reductions will improve the
earnings continually, underpinned by earnings from railway and
real estate leasing businesses.

Earnings of Sotetsu Rosen, supermarket chain operator, has not
been strengthened enough as planned. Sagami Railway also failed
to spin off the bus operations in October 2004. JCR believes
that the interest-bearing debt will be reduced further in the
future, given the Company's focus on cutback on the capital
spending. Restructuring charges have been reducing the net
worth. JCR considers that Sagami Railway should raise the
competitive strength and improve the financial health without
delay.

SOJITZ HOLDINGS: American Unit Receives Order for Rail Cars
-----------------------------------------------------------
Sojitz Corporation of America, a U.S. subsidiary of Sojitz
Holdings Corporation, in partnership with the Hyundai Motors
group rolling stock manufacturer ROTEM Company (located in Seoul
Korea), has been awarded an order for thirty two new type diesel
rail cars, valued at approximately JPY10 billion, by the
Triangle Transit Authority (TTA) based in North Carolina in the
United States.

The diesel rail cars to be delivered by the Sojitz Group will
have the most advanced specifications, which are in compliance
with the latest American railroad standards and which respond to
US emission controls from the year 2008. It is planned that the
diesel rail cars will have a maximum speed of 125 km/h, and that
each car will have 80 seats. This project is subject to the BUY
AMERICA requirements, as it was funded by the US Federal
Government. The final assembly of the coaches will therefore be
carried out at the factory in Philadelphia City.

Triangle Transit Authority (TTA) is a public transportation
provider serving areas between the North Carolina State Capitol
Raleigh City, and Durham City and its surroundings, where Duke
University and the laboratories of many large companies are
concentrated. TTA originally specialized in passenger
transportation using buses.

However, as a result of conducting a detailed review of railway
development, which commenced in 1992 with funding from the U.S.
Federal Government and with the aim of developing a more
advanced public transportation network, a conclusion was reached
that more efficient railway transportation would become possible
through the operation of self-propelled diesel rail cars, which
require no electrical equipment or traction engines, using
existing rail tracks owned by the state railway. Approval in
principle was obtained for this from the U.S. Federal
Government. The cars, to be used on a 45km long rail line, are
scheduled to begin operation in 2008.

Since the undertaking of business in 1978, the number of rail
car orders the Sojitz Group has received from the US rail car
market has already exceeded eight hundred.

Large-scale orders have been received since the year 2000, such
as that received through a liaison with Mitsubishi Electric
Corporation and Canadian-based Bombardier Transportation, and
the recent order received through a liaison with Mitsubishi
Electric Corporation and US-based General Motors Corporation.

The Sojitz Group, together with ROTEM Company, has undertaken an
expansion of rail car sales since 2002. Results achieved in the
US by SOJITZ CORPORATION OF AMERICA in the field of railways,
and ROTEM's technical capabilities and price competitiveness
have been highly valued, leading to the successful first time
receipt of the large-scale order.

There are currently many plans in the U.S. to introduce new type
rail cars. Sojitz will continue its activities in an effort to
receive additional orders for various rail cars, as well as for
the diesel rail cars that are the subject of this order.

SOJITZ HOLDINGS: Net Loss Widens to JPY241 Bln
----------------------------------------------
Beleaguered Sojitz Holdings Corporation booked a group net loss
of JPY241.07 billion for the first half of fiscal 2004, up from
JPY17.51 billion, previously, Japan Today reports.

The losses are incurred from non-performing assets disposal and
unprofitable operations withdrawal.

The holding Company of struggling trading house Sojitz Corp said
it posted JPY25.76 billion in group pretax profit in April-
September, up 35.1%, helped by increased investment profits,
though sales fell 25.4% to JPY2,254.22 billion.

TOSHIBA CORPORATION: Greater China Sales May Double in 2 Years
--------------------------------------------------------------
Toshiba Corporation projects its Greater China semiconductor
sales to reach JPY300 billion from JPY150 billion last year,
according to AFX News.

Toshiba China's public relations officer, Liu Yan, said Greater
China has been one of the world's fastest growing semiconductor
markets. The Company expects sales in the region to climb to
JPY600 billion in 2010.

Toshiba Chief Executive Okumura is hoping the region will
account for 30 percent of the firm's semiconductor business
compared by 2010.

In an earlier statement, Toshiba said Greater China will account
for around 40 percent of the global semiconductor market by
2010.

DAEWOO ENGINEERING: Creditors File Lawsuit On US$530-Mln Loan
-------------------------------------------------------------
Creditors of Daewoo Engineering & Construction Co. filed a
lawsuit for the repayment of a US$530-million loan on behalf of
a former affiliate, reports Asia Pulse.

A creditor-appointed manager of Daewoo America filed the lawsuit
in a New York district Court Monday.  According to the nine
creditors led by the Korean Asset Management Corp. (KAMCO),
Daewoo Engineering should pay the loan since it has obtained
"sound assets" from the divestiture of Daewoo Corp.

"As Daewoo Corp. has no ability to repay the debt, Daewoo E&C
should pay it back," a source said, adding "Daewoo E&C reaped
ill-gotten gains from the breakup."

But according to Daewoo Engineering, the legal action was a
total nonsense for when the creditors signed an agreement for
the split it also means they agreed to take the responsibility
for Daewoo Corp.'s debt.

"We will mobilize every legal means at home and abroad to deal
with the suit," a Daewoo E&C spokesperson said.  The legal
action made the efforts to sell Daewoo Engineering gloomy.

Daewoo America was left with the debt in 2000 when its parent
Company Daewoo Corp., the trading arm of the now-defunct Daewoo
Group, was split into three companies -- Daewoo Corp., Daewoo
E&C and Daewoo International.

SK NETWORKS: Creditors to Sell Combined 15% Stake
-------------------------------------------------
SK Networks Co. Ltd. creditors are considering selling a
combined 15 percent stake in the Company, Reuters reports citing
a creditor official.

The sale is part of the creditors' efforts to recoup some of
their lending.  The stake sale would not affect the number of
shares in circulation for buyers of the stake would be tied to
an agreement made between creditors and SK Networks not to sell
to the market before the end of 2007, the creditor added.

The agreement, which is valid until the Company graduates from
the restructuring programme, is aimed at preventing the firm's
stock price from falling sharply in the event of the sale of
stakes held by creditors.

Shareholders of SK Networks Tuesday agreed to a proposed capital
reduction and share split which is also a part of the
restructuring plan.  SK is due to merge every 7 shares into 2,
reducing its share capital by 71.4 percent to 510.3 billion won.

A Company spokesman said trading in SK Networks' shares was due
to be suspended between December 16 and January 3 for the
capital reduction.

Creditors including state-run Korea Development Bank, Shinhan
Bank, a unit of Shinhan Financial Group, and Hana Bank own
nearly half of the firm.

SK Corp. South Korea's top oil refiner and the de-facto holding
Company of the SK Group, South Korea's fourth-biggest
conglomerate, is the biggest shareholders with a 50 percent
stake.

A $1.2 billion accounting scandal brought SK Networks on the
verge of bankruptcy early last year.  It has been under a
creditor-led restructuring programme since then.

NATIONAL POWER: Aboitiz Clarifies Bid Report
--------------------------------------------
This is in reference to the news article entitled "Aboitiz group
rethinking plan to bid for Napocor's Masinloc power plant"
published in the November 16, 2004 issue of the BusinessWorld
(Internet Edition).

The article reported that "(t)he Aboitiz group may not
participate in this month's bidding for one of the biggest
assets of the National Power Corp. (Napocor) with government
sticking to its decision not to guarantee that the winning
bidder will have buyers of power from the plant. Aboitiz Equity
Ventures (AEV) Executive Vice-President and Chief Operations
Office (sic) Erramon I. Aboitiz said it will be `too much of a
risk' for the holding Company to join the bid for the 600-
megawatt Masinloc coal-fired power plant without a transition
supply 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 Equity Ventures, Inc. (AEV), in its letter to the
Philippine Stock Exchange dated November 16, 2004, stated that:

" AEV still has not made any decision whether to participate or
not in the bid for the Masinloc coal-fired power plant of the
National Power Corporation. Nothing has been discussed by AEV's
Board of Directors as regards this matter. "

ASIA HOTEL: SET Posts SP Sign on Securities
-------------------------------------------
Asia Hotel Public Company Limited (ASIA) publicly submitted to
the Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) its third quarterly
reviewed financial statement ending September 30, 2004.

Since the auditor was unable to reach any conclusion on the
captioned financial statement, this could be considered that the
financial statements do not reflect the actual business
performance.  Hence, the Securities and Exchange Commission
(SEC) would require the financial statement amendment.

As a result, the SET has posted SP sign for suspended trading on
the Company's security effective from the second trading of
November 15, 2004 to enable shareholders and general investors
to have sufficient time to scrutinize auditor's report relating
to the result in financial statement including the Company's
clarification.

The SET will post NP sign effective from the first trading of
November 16, 2004 until such time as the Company will submit the
amended financial statement or it is concluded that such
amendment are not necessary.

However, the SET has still suspended trading all securities of
the aforementioned companies until the causes of delisting are
eliminated.

cost of raw materials has been continuously increased according
to general business condition.

(4) Operating expenses were increased mainly due to freight-out
cost and commission according to sales increased.

(5) Interest expenses in Profit & Loss Statement were increased
due to the undertaking of new loans to clear some portion of
debts prior due date and of the new working capital.

As to the actual interest expenses resultant from the debt-
restructuring plan of three-month period ended September 30,
2004 total THB3.05 million and the same period of prior year
total THB4.46 million, is debited in total debts of the Balance
Sheet in order to conform to the Generally Accepted Accounting

litter bit higher than that of 2003.

TANAYONG: SP Sign Posted on Securities
--------------------------------------
Tanayong Public Company Limited 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 statement, it can be considered that the numbers,
which represent the Company's financial status and operating
outcome as presented in their financial statement, failed to
adequately and/or properly reflect the actual position of the
Companies.

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

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

However, the SET will 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 the financial statement.

The SET has still suspended trading on the securities of
Tanayong PCL in view of the fact that the Company must prepare a
rehabilitation plan.
