GRIBBLES GROUP: Healthscope Now Holds Majority Stake
----------------------------------------------------
Hospital operator Healthscope has surprisingly emerged as the
majority shareholder of Gribbles Group after the pathology
group's largest shareholder, EC Medical Investments (ECMI)
parted with the rest of its holding, according to The Age.

ECMI, which had previously agreed to sell its remaining 150
million shares in Gribbles to Health cope by November 17, has
instead sold its shares to five other parties that have agreed
to accept Healthscope's 63 cents-a-share offer.

That is good news for Healthscope, which gained a relevant
interest in 56 percent of Gribbles shares, as minority
shareholders are now likely to start accepting the bid.

ECMI's announcement to the Australian Stock Exchange on Friday
did not say where, when or at what price the transaction between
ECMI and the other five parties occurred, or why ECMI did not
pass its holding to the bidder directly.

The respective boards and advisers of Gribbles and Healthscope
are believed to be baffled at ECMI's latest move.

Meanwhile, the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) is expected to
look into the SU$94-million sale by ECMI. The ATO has also been
investigating the trust regarding the AU$10 million worth of
dividends it received from Gribbles over the past two years.

JAMES HARDIE: First-half Net Profit Falls
-----------------------------------------
James Hardie Industries in a media release announced a 25-
percent decline in second quarter operating profit from
continuing operations for the three months ended 30 September
2004, to US$24.7 million.

Despite a 20-percent lift in net sales, earnings were lower due
to costs associated with the NSW Government Special Commission
of Inquiry into the Medical Research and Compensation
Foundation (SCI) and other associated developments, and
increased costs in the USA Fibre Cement business.

Excluding US$5.6 million of SCI and related costs, operating
profit for continuing operations was 8 percent lower for the
quarter, at US$30.3 million.

Overall, net sales increased 20 percent, gross profit was up 5
percent and EBIT fell 16 percent to US$40.0 million for the
quarter.

The USA Fibre Cement business continued to grow strongly,
delivering a 21-percent increase in net sales for the quarter,
but EBIT fell 9 percent due to higher spending on ramping-up
growth initiatives and higher manufacturing costs, including
increased costs caused by efficiency problems at a number of our
US plants.

The efficiency issues have been addressed and are now largely
behind us and prices of our most cost-significant raw material
are declining. In Asia Pacific Fibre Cement, net sales increased
14 percent and EBIT increased 31 percent.

The second quarter result lifted half year operating profit from
continuing operations to 30 September 2004 to US$61.8 million,
but this was down 6 percent compared to the first half of last
year due to SCI related costs. Excluding SCI and other related
costs, operating profit from continuing operations was up 7
percent to US$70.3 million. EBIT from USA Fibre Cement and Asia
Pacific Fibre Cement segments were up 4 percent and 35 percent,
respectively for the half year.

Diluted earnings per share from continuing operations decreased
from US 7.1 cents to US 5.4 cents for the 2nd quarter and from
US 14.3 cents to US 13.4 cents for the half year.

The half-year net operating profit, including discontinued
operations, of US$61.1 million includes additional costs
associated with the sale of New Zealand land in March 2004. The
net operating profit including discontinued operations for the
corresponding period of the previous year includes profit
recorded from the sale of our New Zealand Building Systems
business.

JAMES HARDIE: Faces Delisting from Ethical Index
------------------------------------------------
James Hardie Industries became the first Australian firm to be
delisted from an index of companies with responsible social and
environmental practices, according to The Australian.

James Hardie's unethical handling of its asbestos liabilities
has caused it to be removed from the SAM Sustainability Leaders
Australia Fund's list of 70 Australian companies.

The building products manufacturer, which recently announced a
fall in its profit, managed its asbestos liabilities through the
underfunded Medical Research and Compensation Foundation.

The AU$115-million SAM, which boasts institutional investors
including VicSuper and UniSuper, is a subsidiary of
Switzerland's Sustainable Asset Management, the body responsible
for managing the global Dow Jones Sustainability Index.

MAYNE GROUP: Launches Paclitaxel in Spain
-----------------------------------------
Mayne Group Limited (ASX:MAY) announced in a press release that
its Spanish partner, Laboratorios Farmac‚uticos ROVI SA (ROVI),
has commenced sales and distribution of Mayne's injectable
paclitaxel product. This is the first Spanish approval and
launch of a generic paclitaxel for injection.

Mayne's Group Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer, Mr
Stuart James said that ROVI's well-established national sales
and marketing team and local market knowledge, combined with
Mayne's fully integrated supply chain and global experience with
paclitaxel, would help the two companies achieve a strong
position in this major European market.

"With today's launch of paclitaxel in Spain and Mayne's
partnership with IVAX for Paxener, Mayne now markets paclitaxel
in twelve European countries representing more than 90% of the
EU paclitaxel market by value," Mr. James said.

"The Spanish launch of paclitaxel is further evidence of Mayne's
ability to deliver first-to-market alternatives for important
hospital products as we continue to strengthen our leadership
position in the European generic injectable market," he said.

Paclitaxel is widely used for the treatment of breast, ovarian
and non-small cell lung cancer.  According to IMS in the 12
months to June 2004, Bristol Myers Squibb, the innovator of the
branded drug Taxolr, recorded sales in Spain of US$93 million,
and Spain is the second largest European paclitaxel market
behind France based on consumption.

Mayne first established a relationship with ROVI in 2003 as the
marketing partner for pamidronate, an injectable drug used for
hypercalcemia.  ROVI's recent launch of Mayne's irinotecan and
now paclitaxel means that three of Mayne's key oncology products
were first to market in Spain and leverage ROVI's experienced
and established hospital pharmaceutical sales force.

Mayne Group Limited is listed on the Australian Stock Exchange
and has businesses in international specialty pharmaceuticals
(the manufacture of injectable and oral pharmaceuticals for
distribution to more than 50 countries), diagnostic services
(pathology, diagnostic imaging and medical centres), pharmacy,
and health-related consumer products.

Laboratorios Farmac‚uticos ROVI SA (ROVI) is a leading Spanish
pharmaceutical company devoted to the research, manufacturing
and selling of pharmaceutical products. In 2003, ROVI was
awarded the Principe Felipe Prize for corporate excellence in
the category of technological innovation, highlighting the
enormous therapeutic interest of ROVI's proprietary compound
Bemiparin (second generation Low Molecular Weight Heparin). ROVI
also has direct presence in Portugal and through distributors in
many other countries.

* ASIC Bans Failed Furniture and Electrical Retailer
----------------------------------------------------
The Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) has
banned Mr. Monty Khoury, of Brisbane, from managing corporations
for two and-a-half years.

An ASIC investigation found that Mr. Khoury was the sole
director of seven failed companies including No Frills Pty Ltd,
MK Resources Pty Ltd, Redmond Holdings Pty Ltd, Toowoomba
Furniture and Electrical Pty Ltd, Jackson Manufacturing Pty Ltd,
MK Security Pty Ltd and Shailer Holdings Pty Ltd.

These companies operated electrical retail stores at Lawnton and
Toowoomba and furniture stores at Loganholme, Cannon Hill,
McGregor, Virginia and Burleigh Heads.

The companies that Mr. Khoury was a director of were placed into
voluntary administration and subsequently wound up with the
liquidators reporting that each of the corporations was unable
to pay creditors more than 50 cents in the dollar.

The companies left significant debts to the Australian Taxation
Office and Workcover, which resulted in non-payment of
superannuation entitlements. Other creditors including Sharp
Corporation Australia Pty Ltd, NEC Australia and Samsung
Electronic Australia Pty Ltd were also affected by the failure
of the Khoury group of companies.

ASIC's Executive Director of Public and Commercial Services, Mr.
Mark Drysdale said it was imperative that people contemplating
becoming a Company officer were aware of both their
responsibilities and the consequences of not complying with the
law.

'Persons who become officeholders without understanding their
role and responsibilities risk regulatory action if they fail to
conduct their duties as a Company director honestly and in the
best interests of the Company and its' creditors', Mr. Drysdale
said.

ASIA PULP: Creditors Launch New Attack on Units' Restructuring
--------------------------------------------------------------
A new battle against a US$6.7-billion debt restructuring of Asia
Pulp and Paper's (APP) subsidiaries was recently launched by a
group of U.S. secure creditors, says the Financial Times.

The protesting group threatened to go after other creditors and
seize any payments made to them by APP under the scheme.

APP, the largest corporate defaulter in emerging markets
history, was poised to finalize the rehabilitation of its four
Indonesian units. The firm has fixed December as deadline for
bondholders to approve the deal, which would enable APP to
extend its debt repayment period to 22 years.

The scheme would allow APP to make an interest payment of around
US$400 million to creditors as early as next month, and start
negotiations with overseas lenders of its Chinese subsidiaries
and Singapore parent.

But a group of secured bondholders led by disgruntled Oaktree
Capital and Gramercy Advisors, which recently won a US$353-
million ruling against APP, opposed the Indonesian
restructuring.

Oaktree and Gramercy warned they would use a U.S. Court's
November 12 judgment to go after fellow creditors who accepted
payments from APP.

The ruling gave the group access to the files of GBR Information
Services, a New York firm hired by APP to communicate with its
Indonesian bondholders, allowing them to track payments to
fellow creditors.

INDOFOOD SUKSES: Unit To Export More Wheat Flour in 2005
--------------------------------------------------------
Bogasari Flour Mills, a subsidiary of PT Indofood Sukses Makmur,
plans to export 100,000 tons of wheat flour next year, Asia
Pulse says.

The volume of wheat to be exported in 2005 would be twice as
much as this year's, estimated to total only 45,000 tons.

Indofood vice president Franciscus Welirang said the rise in
imports would not affect the supply of the domestic market.

According to Mr. Welirang, the Company is seeking to expand its
export market to Middle East. In fact, Indofood is currently
waiting for the result of a tender in Libya, which is importing
up to 200,000 tons of wheat flour a year.

Mr. Welirang gave assurance that the Company could easily
fulfill domestic supply despite increase in exports, as Bogasari
yields a hefty 3.4 million tons of flour annually.

* Government Mulls Sale of Unprofitable SOEs
--------------------------------------------
The new government is planning to divest or dissolve its money-
losing businesses in line with a scheme to restructure all
state-owned enterprises (SOEs), according To The Jakarta Post.

The policy was part of the state's proposed "SOEs blueprint"
aimed at efficiently managing state companies for the next five
years.

Mahmuddin Yasin, deputy for privatization at the Office of State
Minister of State Enterprises, confirmed the government is
considering disposing of SOEs with "poor performance, lack of
business prospects and have no public-service obligations".

He added that SOEs that were still considered viable but were
poorly managed would undergo restructuring by merging them or
injecting fresh capital from public investors.

The government will, likewise, maintain ailing SOEs with public-
service obligations by providing them with subsidies and other
facilities that could sustain their operations.

Under the "SOEs blueprint", the new government proposes to
create a holding Company that would efficiently oversee SOEs,
similar to Singapore's government arm Temasek.

If the plan is realized, executives of the holding entity will
be tasked to handle 162 companies, with more than IDR700
trillion (about US$77 billion) in combined assets.

ALL NIPPON: To Begin E-ticketing Services with United Airlines
--------------------------------------------------------------
From mid December this year, All Nippon Airlines (ANA) and
United Airlines will begin issuing electronic tickets (e-
tickets) valid for travel on each other's networks, allowing
passengers connecting from ANA international flights to United
Airlines' domestic or international flights, or vice-versa, to
do so with the same e-ticket.

At present, ANA issued e-tickets are valid only for
international travel on ANA operated flights, however, this
latest development will have the convenience of just one e-
ticket for journeys on both ANA and United Airlines operated
flights, including code-shares.

In customer surveys around the globe e-tickets belong to the
most demanded airline services. Without having the need for
traditional paper ticket documents, passengers can check-in for
travel using no more than a form of personal identification
(credit or mileage programme card or passport). All travel data
is available throughout the trip, changes to the itinerary may
be swiftly and simply made, and lost tickets are no longer an
issue.

The bilateral e-ticketing link is part of a global Star Alliance
project, which will in the near future allow customers to travel
on the alliance network with one single e-ticket.

Customers in Japan using e-tickets will also be able to take
advantage of ANA's "e-Pre Check-in" service to check-in via
their personal computer or mobile phone from three days to one
hour prior to departure. Furthermore, using mobile phones
equipped with FeliCa contactless chip technology, or 2D bar code
technology on ordinary mobile phones, they will be able to
dramatically reduce the time taken to issue boarding passes at
Self Check-in Machines once they arrive at their departure
airport: from an average of 50 seconds to just eight.

From October 1 this year to May 31, 2005, customers reserving e-
tickets via ANA's website, the ANA Reservation Centre, or at
appointed travel agents, will be entitled to up to 1,000 bonus
miles.

DAIKYO INCORPORATED: To Sell US$2.9-Bln Worth of Assets

In line with its restructuring efforts, ailing Daikyo

Daikyo, which is expected to book an extraordinary loss of about
JPY265.2 billion for the first half, will sell about 10 office
buildings, 4 golf courses and more than 1,000 rental apartments,
reducing the group's total assets by 40 percent to JPY450
billion.

Around seven to eight firms, including foreign investment funds,
are said to be interested in purchasing the properties.

MITSUBISHI MOTORS: Undergoes Assets Reevaluation
------------------------------------------------
Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) is undergoing reevaluation
of its assets by a major accounting firm in a bid to draw up a
credible business rehabilitation plan, Jiji Press relates.

The accounting firm is reexamining the value of the carmaker's
production facilities the costs of all parts and components, and
the break-even points for its plants and sales networks, as well
as the costs of developing new vehicles.

MMC will then map out a new rehabilitation scheme based on the
results of the financial scrutiny, which are expected to be
announced later this month.

The new program would feature MMC's plan to strengthen its ties
with Nissan Motor Company in the production and sales of
minivehicles.

The Mitsubishi group is reportedly prepared to infuse money into
MMC if the struggling automaker shows them a solid
rehabilitation program.

SOFTBANK CORPORATION: Proposes to Lease Hawks' Home Stadium
-----------------------------------------------------------
Softbank Corporation has proposed to lease the home stadium of
Daiei Incorporated's pro baseball team from Colony Capital LLC
for more than JPY3 billion annually, reports Kyodo News.

Internet service provider Softbank, which inked a deal with
ailing Daiei to purchase the Daiei Hawks, is optimistic it can
reap profit at the stadium by using it for other events such as
concerts and exhibitions.

Sources said that Colony Capital, a U.S. investment firm that
bought the Fukouka stadium from Daiei in March, is likely to
accept the proposal.

Earlier, Softbank has reached a basic accord with Colony to
purchase promotional rights to the team, including ticket sales.
Colony, on the other hand, is expected to charge Softbank for
use of the stadium to cover losses that would be incurred from
the sale of promotional rights.

Colony said it is not considering selling the stadium.

TOSHIBA CORPORATION: Reinforces Residential Fuel Cell Venture
-------------------------------------------------------------
Toshiba Corporation has announced moves to reinforce its on-site
fuel cell business, including a buyout of Toshiba International
Fuel Cells (TIFC) from UTC to make it a wholly owned Toshiba
subsidiary.

The announcement follows a November 9 agreement with UTC Fuel
Cells of Connecticut, U.S.A, under which Toshiba acquired UTC
Fuel Cells' 49% interest in TIFC. The Company will be renamed as
Toshiba Fuel Cells Power Systems and will take the lead in
promoting commercialization of polymer electrolyte fuel cells
(PEFC) in the Japanese market.

The agreement with UTC Fuel Cells will allow Toshiba to focus on
the immediate target of bringing 1kW class PEFCs to the Japanese
residential market. Because PEFCs offer an eco-friendly route to
electricity co-generation, and heat output of approximately 60
degrees centigrade, Japan's Ministry of Economy, Trade and
Industry is promoting their on-site use as an alternative energy
source for residences, and will launch a program in 2005 to
support the installation and monitoring of approximately 3,000
prototype fuel cells over three years.

Toshiba Fuel Cells Power Systems will use this policy initiative
as an opportunity to expand its fuel cell business and targets
to supply the project with several hundreds of 1kW PEFCs a year.
METI's forecasts see PEFC generating 2,200MW electricity for the
residential use by 2010. Toshiba expects 2008 to be the year
when the PEFC market starts to expand in Japan, and new Company
looks to support this expansion with the capability to supply
1,000 PEFCs a year.

Toshiba and UTC Fuel Cells will remain as key technical partners
for continued development of advanced fuel cells that meet
diversifying market needs, extending a collaborative
relationship in developing fuel-cell technology for commercial
and residential applications that dates back to the 1980's.

* Number of Corporate Bankruptcies Rose by 93
---------------------------------------------
South Korea's corporate bankruptcies rose to 415 as of October
of this year, up 93 from 322 in September, The Korea Herald
reports, citing The Bank of Korea.

The increase resulted from the prolonged economic downturn and
the extension of corporate bill settlement dates as a result of
the Chosuk Holidays in the last week of September.

Bankruptcy ratio also rose from 0.01 percentage point to 0.06
percent over the same period.  The bankruptcy figure was the
highest since December last year when the total of 432
businesses failed across the country.

In Seoul, 132 business failures by region were reported last
month, an increase of 15 from September, while the number of
bankruptcies sharply rose by 78 to 283 in other regions during
the same period, an indication that businesses in provincial
areas were more severely affected by continuing economic slump.

"Around 40 companies that would have gone bankrupt at the end of
September reported business failures in the first week of last
month," the officials added.

However, the number of new businesses ballooned to 2440 in
October a 337 increase from a month ago.

DIGITAL TELECOMMUNICATIONS: Clarifies Subscriber Report
-------------------------------------------------------
Digital Telecommunications refers to the news article entitled
"Sun Cellular breaches 1 million subscriber mark" published in
the November 19, 2004 issue of the BusinessWorld (Internet
Edition).

The article reported, "Sun Cellular, the mobile phone brand of
the Gokongwei-led Digital Telecommunications Philippines, Inc.
(Digitel) finally breached the one-million mark in subscriber
base. This is earlier than the firm's estimated time frame of
hitting one million by December. `We have exceeded whatever we
promised. We are way beyond one million,' said Victor Janolino,
Vice-president for usage-marketing."

Digital Telecommunications Philippines, Inc. (DGTL), in its
letter to the Philippine Stock Exchange dated November 22, 2004,
confirmed that:

"Sun Cellular has breached the 1 million subscriber mark."

In a recent TCR-AP report, Digital Telecommunications
Philippines Inc. (Digitel) incurred a net loss of Php384.7
million in the third quarter ended September 30, versus a net
loss of 244.2 million a year earlier.

Digitel launched its mobile service in March 2003 under the
brand name Sun Cellular. It expects the mobile operations to
start making profits in their third year.

MANILA ELECTRIC: US$228-Mln Refinancing Deal Boosts Napocor Bid
---------------------------------------------------------------
The successful renegotiation by the Manila Electric Co.
(Meralco) for the refinancing of some US$228 million in loans
with creditor banks is a major boost to the government's bid to
privatize the generation assets of the National Power Corp.
(Napocor), the Philippine Star reports, citing Energy Secretary
Vincent Perez.

Mr. Perez said the refinancing deal has positive implications
because potential bidders for Napocor's generation assets value
the much-enhanced credit worthiness of Meralco, the biggest
customer of the state-owned firm.

Some 30 banks from the Philippines, Australia, Austria, China,
France, Germany, India, Japan, Singapore, Taiwan and the United
States agreed to stretch Meralco loans maturing in 2004 to 2006
to a term of seven years, or up to 2011.

MONDRAGON LEISURE: Asks Court To Rule On Mimosa Asset Sale
----------------------------------------------------------
The Mondragon Leisure and Resorts Corporation has asked the
Supreme Court to solve the dispute over the privatization of the
Mimosa Leisure Parks in Clark Field Pampanga, reports the
Business World.

Mondragon said the Court should resolve the case immediately as
Emmanuel Y. Angeles, the President and Chief Executive of Clark
Development Corporation (CDC), "is bent on pushing through with
what it termed as the 'privatization' of Mimosa." He added that
if the privatization pushed through, the case would then be
rendered unresolved.

In February 1994, CDC entered into a lease agreement with
Mondragon for the development of Mimosa. The deal was however
terminated in 1998 for "various and continuous violations of
[Mondragon] in the terms and conditions of the lease agreement."

In June 1999, both parties inked a compromise agreement where
Mondragon agreed to pay back rentals, return certain leased
properties and construct a water park, hotel and additional
casinos. But since Mondragon failed to meet the deal's terms,
the compromise deal was terminated and CDC took over the
property. CDC said the takeover of the property was pursuant to
a writ of execution.

Mondragon owes CDC over PhP1.28 billion as of July 31, 2003.

NATIONAL POWER: Energy Sales Up 4.5% in Third Quarter
-----------------------------------------------------
The National Power Corporation (Napocor) recorded a 4.56-percent
increase in energy sales to 27,489.53 gigawatt-hour (GWh) in the
third quarter ended September, slightly higher than the state-
owned power firm's earlier forecast, the Business World reports.

The state-owned utility attributed the improvement to higher
sales in all of the country's three major grids such as
cooperatives, power utilities, and industries.

The Luzon grid accounted for the biggest share of total energy
sales at 65.56% or 18,022.92 GWh. Energy sales in Luzon which
rose by 3.45% from last year's 17,422.19 GWh, is attributed to
higher purchases by the Manila Electric Co.

BANGKOK RUBBER: SET Suspends Trading of Securities
--------------------------------------------------
Bangkok Rubber Public Company Limited (BRC) has submitted to the
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) is considering requiring that the Company 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 BRC effective from the first
trading session of 15 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.

The SET will post an NP (Notice Pending) sign effective from the
first trading session of 16 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.

However, the SET has still suspended trading on the securities
of BRC in view of the fact that the Company must prepare a
rehabilitation plan.
