AINSWORTH GAME: Contract Delay Affects Profitability
----------------------------------------------------
Ainsworth Game Technology suffered a first-half loss of up to
AU$2 million due to the deferment of an anticipated
international order due to needed changes in machine software,
reports The Courier-Mail.

Despite saying that its sales had picked up, shares in Ainsworth
tumbled after it issued a profit warning due to the contract
delay. A first half profit estimate of only AU$655,000 has been
released.

Ainsworth said the firm's financial results were affected by
substantial spending in building market presence in established
and new jurisdictions, increased expenditures on new licenses,
research and development and the initial costs of establishing
distribution networks for additional international markets.

-------------------------------------------------------------
The National Australia Bank disclosed it had raised more than
AU$1.3 million in the first 48 hours of collecting donations to
help the victims of the Asian earthquake and tsunami.

Chief Executive Officer Australia for the National, Mr. Ahmed

all Australians.

"I'd like to thank everyone who has made a donation to help the
victims of the Asian earthquake and tsunami.  The response has
been wonderful," Mr. Fahour said.

"We established the fund only yesterday to make it easier for
people to donate money and to assist the aid agencies.  It's
terrific that staff in the National's 1,000 branches across
Australia are able to help with the appeal," he said.

The National has also established a temporary relief package for
customers and staff who are stranded or who have suffered loss
as a result of the tsunami including:

(1) Temporary suspension of home loan repayments;
(2) Waiving application fees for restructuring of existing
loans;
(3) Waiving fees and costs for early withdrawal of term
deposits;
(4) Waiving personal loan application fees; and
(5) Credit card relief where appropriate.

These offers are available until 31 March 2005.

"Some of our customers may be affected and we want them to be
aware that we are able to help get their businesses and personal
finances under control again as quickly as possible," Mr. Fahour
said.

National customers are advised to talk to their banker or call
13 22 65 about the options available.

The National's relief fund will continue until the end of March
2005.  All donations will be provided to World Vision for
distribution to victims and their families.  Donations can be
made through any National Australia Bank branch or through the
National's website at www.national.com.au.

BANK GLOBAL: Interpol Issues Red Notice for Fugitives
-----------------------------------------------------
A red notice has been issued by the International Police
(Interpol) to help the Indonesian police capture two Bank Global
Internasional executives, who are suspected to have participated
in a scam that led to the bank's suspension, relates The Jakarta
Post.

The Interpol issued a red notice for Bank Global President
Irawan Salim and Operational Director Rico Santoso.

The Indonesian police sought assistance from Singapore Police
and the France-based Interpol after both executives disappeared
following the suspension of Bank Global's activities on Dec. 11.

Mr. Salim and Mr. Santoso are accused of attempting to cover up
their wrongdoings by trying to destroy bank documents as the
bank's financial health deteriorated sharply over the past few
months due to fictitious lending activities and bank fraud.

Meanwhile, police have detained 11 other executives from the
embattled private bank, after its business was suspended when
its Capital Adequacy Ratio (CAR) had dropped from 44.8 percent
to minus 39 percent. The CAR measures the financial health of a
bank, and Bank Indonesia requires banks in Indonesia to have a
minimum CAR of 8 percent.

for earthquake and tsunami victims in the province of Nanggroe
Aceh Darusssalam and a small part of North Sumatra, reports
Antara.

The financial assistance is separate from aid packages collected
from employees of Pertamina and its sister companies.  The aid
packages, which included medical supplies, biscuits, milk,
clothes, and women's utensils, were airlifted by a Fokker-100
aircraft and dropped to the tsunami-devastated areas.

The next stage of assistance will be part of an IDR15 billion
aid commitment which will be manifested in the dispatch of
clothes, soft drinks, the setting up of public kitchens, the
opening of Pertamina Peduli policlinics in some towns in Aceh
and the rehabilitation of public facilities and infrastructure.

PERUSAHAAN LISTRIK: May Incur US$53.75 Mln Losses from Tsunami
--------------------------------------------------------------
Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN) estimated some IDR500 billion
(US$53.75 million) in losses due to heavy damage to its power
facilities resulting from the Asian tsunami, Asia Pulse.

The massive losses came mostly from damage to its transmission
and distribution networks in the tsunami-hit areas of Aceh and
North Sumatra.

PLN President Eddie Widiono confirmed communications have not
been restored to some areas expected to suffer potential
devastation.

He said most power generating plants function well in Aceh but
distribution systems are heavily damaged.

The state-owned electricity firm vowed it will send 100 units of
electric generators to help cope with power supply crisis in
Aceh.

Meanwhile, 30 percent of the power supply in capital city Bandah
Aceh has been restored.

PT INDOFARMA: Sells Stake in Unprofitable Unit
----------------------------------------------
Beleaguered PT Indofarma has divested its entire stake in PT
Risima Abadi Farmasi (RAF) to PT Trimarga Rekatama for IDR5.77
billion (US$640,000), says Asia Pulse.

State-owned Indofarma has sold its entire 58-percent stake in
the loss-making subsidiary, which tallied losses of up to IDR1.5
billion a year.

Indofarma, which had invested IDR8.66 billion in RAF, has
incurred around IDR3 billion losses as a result of the
divestment.

The drug firm's decision to dispose of its shareholding in the
unit stemmed from RAF's marketing problem to dispose of its
paracetamol product with tight competition in the international
market.

DAIEI INCORPORATED: IRCJ Protests S&P's Report on Rehab Sponsors
----------------------------------------------------------------
The state-backed corporate turnaround body last week filed a
protest against Standard & Poor's over its recent report
predicting sponsors of Daiei Incorporated's rehabilitation
program would see their credit qualities negatively affected,
says Kyodo News.

The Industrial Revitalization Corporation of Japan (IRCJ) called
on the U.S. credit-rating agency to immediately respond on
matters such as the reliability of its projections and the logic
behind its conclusions.

IRCJ President Atsushi Saito criticized the S&P report released
on Dec. 21, saying it is based on media reports. He said he
cannot understand why such negative comments came out before the
sponsors' bidding.

The S&P report claimed that Daiei's outstanding debt is expected
to remain at hundreds of billions of yen even if it receives
about JPY600 billion in debt waivers from creditor banks and the
operational challenges of reviving the ailing retailer will be
"immense".

Although the candidates appear to include companies rated by
S&P, the effects of potential support for Daiei on their
business and finances have yet to be incorporated into rating
assessments, the report said.

After analyzing the financial support plan and Daiei's group-
wide medium-term restructuring plan, S&P will examine three
factors -- the financial burden on the candidates, the
consistency of their own medium-term business plans, and their
own business policies and any benefits of the rehabilitation
plan, it said.

The IRCJ, which ruled out taking legal action against the rating
firm, has already sent a letter to the S&P headquarters and has
yet to receive a response.

DAIEI INCORPORATED: New Management Team to be Set Up in May
-----------------------------------------------------------
The Industrial Revitalization Corporation of Japan (IRCJ) is
keen on setting up a new management team for struggling retailer
Daiei Incorporated possibly in May, The Japan Times reports.

The IRCJ was willing to establish the team in April but will
have to postpone it until May, as the selection of Daiei's
rehabilitation sponsor may be delayed until the end of March.

IRCJ President Atsushi Saito said the management team will
include a president who will be sent by the sponsor, as well as
some directors appointed by the IRCJ.

Revival sponsorship candidates were required to submit their
rehabilitation proposals this month.

The IRCJ and the sponsor will focus business resources on food
sales that feature higher profitability.


DAIEI INCORPORATED: Mulls End of Okinawa, Shikoku, Chugoku Ops
--------------------------------------------------------------
Daiei Incorporated is considering shutting down its entire store
network in Okinawa, Shikoku and the Chugoku regions under a
restructuring program managed by the Industrial Revitalization
Corporation of Japan (IRCJ), according to The Japan Times.

The embattled retailer is also planning to halt operations of
its two outlets in the Tohoku region.

The government-backed IRCJ said it will trim Daiei's business
areas as it believes the company's insistence to stick to
nationwide operations was one factor that contributed to its
dismal performance.

Daiei, which currently has six outlets in the Chugoku region,
four in Shikoku and two in Okinawa, will shut down 53
unprofitable stores out of its 263 outlets. It plans to open 100
new supermarkets in the Tokyo and Osaka areas.


KANEBO LIMITED: Faces Probe Over Slush Fund
-------------------------------------------
Investigators have discovered that 10 executives of Kanebo
Limited were involved in creating a slush fund worth JPY250
million, reports The Asahi Shimbun.

Sources said the former executives, who worked at the textile
maker's Tokyo head office, operated the fund from 1999 to 2002.
The fund was allegedly run by a former vice president from the
former Sakura Bank, one of the predecessor banks of Sumitomo
Mitsui Banking Corp., Kanebo's main creditor.

The discovery prompted the Tokyo District Prosecutors Office and
the Securities and Exchange Surveillance Commission (SESC) to
begin investigations into the embattled textile company.

The SESC is working to find out what the slush fund was for. It
will pore over the firm's financial documents and questions the
former executives on suspicions that the Securities and Exchange
Law has been violated.

Kanebo has allegedly operated slush funds for more than 10
years, using fictitious transactions to transfer several tens of
millions of yen annually.


MISAWA HOMES: Toyota Taps Nomura in Rehab Sponsorship Deal
----------------------------------------------------------
Toyota Motor Corporation has named Nomura Securities Co. as its
financial adviser, in line with the carmaker's move to sponsor
the revitalization of stricken Misawa Homes Holdings
Incorporated, Kyodo News says.

Nomura, the core arm of Nomura Holdings Inc., will work closely
with Toyota to design a rehabilitation scheme for the ailing
homebuilder.

Last week, it was announced that Toyota and a yet-undetermined
third party will take up to a 33.4-percent stake in Misawa
Homes.

Toyota confirmed it will buy to a 10 percent stake in the
homebuilder, and the remaining percent will be purchased to help
rehabilitate Misawa Homes.

The announcement followed a formal decision by the state-backed
Industrial Revitalization Corporation of Japan to help
rehabilitate Misawa Homes.

LG CARD: Creditors, LG Group Provide KRW1 Trillion Bailout Fund
---------------------------------------------------------------
LG Card Co. creditors and LG Group have agreed to contribute
KRW500 billion each as bailout fund for LG Card, Digital
Chosunilbo relates.  

The agreement was reached at a meeting Friday and is expected to
keep the ailing card issuer from liquidation.  The deal will
normalize the operation of LG Card, and would creditors would
most likely turn their efforts to selling their stake in LG Card
next year.

The creditors' initial proposal was a KRW1.2 trillion bailout
package and a demand that LG Group convert KRW875 billion of
debt into equity. However, LG Group argued that it could only
provide KRW264.3 billion in the debt-for-equity swap.

Meanwhile, creditors stressed they will sell a combined 20
percent stake in LG Card, which will be remained listed,
following the KRW1 trillion bailout package.

Minority shareholders owned just 0.7 percent of the ailing card
issuer's shares listed on the Korea Stock Exchange at the end of
2004, the remainder is held by creditors.

"Under KSE rules, minority shareholders should own at least 10
percent of a stock in order for the stock to stay listed, so the
creditors have decided to sell a 20 percent stake by the end of
2005," main lender Korea Development Bank said in a statement.

Additionally, PMSB also warrants that the audited PAT of CDM
shall not be less than RM911,000 for the financial year ending
31 March 2007.

Nevertheless, the proposed revised guaranteed PAT for the

((i) and (ii) above are collectively referred to as "Proposed
Variations)

A summary of the proposed variations to the profit guarantees is
set out in Table 2 below.

3. RATIONALE FOR THE PROPOSED VARIATIONS

(i) Revised terms of the Proposed Acquisition of Amber

Under the conditional sale and purchase agreement between Jawira
and the vendors of Amber dated 31 October 2002, one of the
conditions precedent requires the approval of DBKL for the
proposed disposal of shares held by the vendors of Amber to
Jawira pursuant to the Proposed Acquisition of Amber under the
Proposed Restructuring Scheme. However, DBKL, via its letter
dated 6 July 2004, had rejected the application made by Amber to
seek the approval.

Following thereto, the Remaining Shareholders do not intend to
continue with the disposal of the shares held by them in Amber
to Jawira. Pursuant to the withdrawal of the Remaining
Shareholders and at the request of PMSB, the Continuing Vendors
who represents 80% of the registered owners of the issued and
paid-up share capital of Amber agreed to continue with the
Proposed Acquisition of Amber subject to variations to be
mutually agreed upon.

Nevertheless, subsequent to the appeal to DBKL made by Amber
against the decision to reject the application by Amber on 22
October 2004, DBKL had, via its letter dated 26 November 2004
granted approval for the proposed disposal of shares held by
vendors of Amber to Jawira under the Proposed Restructuring
Scheme of KCB.

(ii) Variations to profit guarantees

Amber and CDM

Earlier profit forecast and projections of Amber for the years
2005 onwards was based on the assumption that Phases 2 and 3 of
Amber's development project was to have been launched in years
2004 and 2005 respectively in accordance to the development
schedule for Site 1.

However, part of Phase 3 and boundary of Phase 2 Site 1
partially occupies a football field used by the tenants of DBKL
flats in Sri Johor. As DBKL is conscious of recent public
sensitivities with regards to preservation of playing fields and
green areas, it has requested that the football field be
relocated. An alternative site to relocate the field was to have
been found prior to submission of the development plans. The
directive from the authorities deferred the submission of Phase
2 until a solution for relocating the football field was found.
An alternative site for the football field was eventually
identified on an adjacent Lot 3688 by DBKL in June 2004 and
development plans for Phase 2 have now been finalized for
submission in January 2005.

Pursuant to the relocation of the football field which forms
part of Amber's development project, Amber has to revise the
layout plan and other relevant plans of the development project
and such revision has affected the development schedules for
Phases 2 and 3 of the development project.

Based on the representation of the management of Amber, the
commencement of the development of Phases 2 and 3 has been
delayed and as a result, the revenue of Amber for the future
financial years is affected. CDM which manages the development
of all sites for Amber under the joint venture agreement with
DBKL is consequently affected in terms of its fee income derived
for the various phases of development in accordance to the
various stages of progress of each phase.

In view of the above, the management of Amber and CDM has
revised the forecast and projected profits to better reflect the
present situation i.e. based on new work schedule.

Therefore, in consideration of the revisions in the terms of the
Proposed Acquisition of Amber and the delay of Phases 2 and 3 of
the development project, the profit guarantees to be provided by
Amber and CDM have to be deferred and revised to reflect the
achievable future profits based on the revised forecast and
projected profits for the financial years ending 31 March 2005
to 2008.

Furthermore, in consideration of the Continuing Vendors and the
vendors of CDM agreeing to continue with the disposal of their
shareholdings in Amber and CDM respectively to Jawira at the
request of PMSB, PMSB has provided profit guarantees for the
financial years ending 31 March 2007 and 2008.

MESB

The profit guarantee of MESB is proposed to be deferred due to,
inter-alia, the following:

a) With regards to the development of 110 acres Semeling land,
MESB have proceeded with the preparation of the entire earthwork
platform for Plot 2 upon obtaining the necessary planning
approval. However, during the process of site preparation and
earthwork carried out on the project land, MESB encountered
extremely soft ground conditions that would certainly cause
difficulty for the construction of buildings unless soil
improvement works were to be carried out. In such case,
continuing with the development works on Plot 2 would result in
much higher cost and would inevitably reduce the projected
profits compared to the original forecast.

b) As part of MESB's business strategy to meet the projected
profit and to spearhead the project to be undertaken by Kedah
Resort City Sdn Bhd (KRC), the management of MESB is
contemplating possible joint development or ventures with a
selected party to develop Plot 1 and Plot 2 of the Semeling
Land. However, careful consideration need to be given to ensure
the overall objectives of KRC in providing good housing projects
and at the same time achieving reasonable profit for the company
in accordance with its projections.

c) The transfer of the relevant land titles to KRC in respect of
the 1400 acres Tupah land are still being processed by all the
relevant authorities. As a result, development work has not
commenced yet.

In view of the above, the profit guarantee to be provided by
MESB has to be deferred accordingly to reflect the changing set
of assumptions used to generate the revised forecast and
projected profits of MESB Group as certain assumptions used in
the original forecast and projections are required to be updated
to reflect current situation.

Satujaya

The profit guarantee of Satujaya is proposed to be deferred to
reflect the revisions in the company's forecast and projected
financial results for the years 2005 onwards which are due to
the following:

(i) Certain projects have been postponed at the request of the
owners and there are also projects, which were unable to
commence as expected since the owners have not obtained the
relevant approvals. Hence, the revenue expected from the
projects has to be revised based on current situation; and

(ii) As demand for construction of factories for the previous
year has not been good, Satujaya has shifted its strategy to
building more bungalows instead of factories. Furthermore,
bungalow schemes generate more profit margin compared to
factories.

In view of the above, certain assumptions used as basis for the
earlier financial forecast and projections are required to be
updated to reflect the current situation and hence, the profit
guarantee has to be deferred.

4. EFFECTS OF THE PROPOSED RESTRUCTURING SCHEME AFTER THE
PROPOSED VARIATIONS

shareholdings of the substantial shareholders of KCB.

which includes the Proposed Variations on the shareholdings of
the substantial shareholders of Jawira are set out in Table 5
below.

4.4 Earnings

The Proposed Restructuring Scheme, which includes the Proposed
Variations, is not expected to materially affect the earnings of
Jawira Group for the financial year ending 31 March 2005 as it
is expected to be completed only in the second quarter of 2005.

of the Jawira Group for the financial year ending 31 March 2006.

reprimanded Wembley Industries Holdings Berhad (WEMBLEY or the
Company) for breach of Paragraphs 9.16(1)(a) and 9.19(34) of the
Listing Requirements of Bursa Malaysia Securities (Bursa
Securities LR).

Paragraph 9.16, in particular 9.16(1)(a) of the Bursa Securities
LR states that the content of a press or other public
announcement is as important as its timing. A listed issuer must
ensure that each announcement is factual, clear, unambiguous,
accurate, succinct and contain sufficient information to enable
investors to make informed investment decisions.

Paragraph 9.19(34) of the Bursa Securities LR requires a listed
issuer to make immediate announcements to Bursa Securities on
any deviation of 10% or more between the profit after tax and
minority interest stated in the announced un audited accounts
snd audited accounts, giving an explanation of the deviation and
the reconciliation thereof.

The Company was found to be in breach of Paragraph 9.16(1)(a) of
the Bursa Securities LR for failing to take into account some
significant items in its 4th quarterly report for the financial
year ended 31 December 2002 (FYE 31 December 2002) which was
announced to Bursa Securities on 27 February 2003. These items
which were only adjusted in the annual audited accounts for the
FYE 31 December 2002 and announced on 2 May 2003 has resulted in
a deviation between the un audited profit after taxation and
minority interest of RM8.92 million and the audited loss after
tax and minority interest of RM585.51 million for the FYE 31
December 2002.

The Company was also found to be in breach of Paragraph 9.19(34)
of the Bursa Securities LR for failing to make an immediate
announcement on 2 May 2003 in respect of the explanation of the
deviation between the un audited results and the audited results
for the fiscal year ending (FYE) 31 December 2002. The
explanation of the deviation was only announced on 30 May 2003.

The public reprimand was imposed pursuant to Paragraph 16.17 of
the Bursa Securities LR after taking into consideration all
relevant factors.

Bursa Securities views the above contravention seriously and
hereby cautions the Company and its Board of Directors on their
responsibility to maintain appropriate standards of corporate
responsibility and accountability in order to achieve greater
disclosure and transparency to its shareholders and the

COLLEGE ASSURANCE: Financial Woes May Spill Over to Units
---------------------------------------------------------
The financial problems of College Assurance Plans Philippines
Inc. is expected to continue this year and may even spill over

MAYNILAD WATER: Three Firms Eyeing Takeover
-------------------------------------------
Three private firms have expressed interest in acquiring the
Maynilad Water Services Inc. as soon as the court approves its
revised rehabilitation plan, the Manila Times reports.

While senior officials have declined to elaborate, Maitet Diokno
Pascual of the non-government organization Bantay Tubig said the
interest of these three firms is premised on the Company's
rehabilitation scheme not having a provision that would require
the new owner to put up a performance bond.

Ms. Pascual said the rehabilitation plan calls for lower
performance requirements and reduced service obligations but
higher water rates.

PHILIPPINE LONG: To Cut Debt by US$540-Mln in 2005
--------------------------------------------------
Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co. (PLDT) plans to reduce
its debt by US$540 million this year as part of its continued
efforts to clean up its books, reports ABS-CBN News.

The telecommunications giant will settle US$370 million in debt
incurred by its fixed-line business, and another US$170 million
of the wireless units' obligations.

PLDT Chairman Manuel V. Pangilinan said the quick settling of
debts would allow the Company to save on interest payments and
minimize currency risks.

The Company kicked off an aggressive debt-restructuring program
in 2004, when it cut US$350 million from its outstanding
obligations.

The decision brought to US$450 million the total borrowings
retired in 2004.

Of the PLDT group's outstanding US$2.99 billion debt as of the
third quarter, US$2.2 billion is owed by the fixed-line
business.

Wireless subsidiaries Smart Communications Inc. and Pilipino
Telephone Corp., on the other hand, have a combined obligation
of US$718 million.

PLDT promises a more aggressive debt payment program this year.

CHINA AVIATION (S): Misses Deadline to File Defense
---------------------------------------------------
Troubled China Aviation Oil (S) Corporation (CAO) has missed a
crucial deadline for filing a defense against a claim by a
consortium of Indonesia businessmen, Asia Intelligence Wire
reports.

CAO's failure to meet a legal deadline while being sued means it
could be liable for total damages worth SG$47 million (US$223.24
million) under default judgment.  

Satya Capital, which is owned by a group of Indonesian
businessmen, is suing both CAO and its Beijing-based parent
after its agreement to purchase 20.6% of Singaporean oil
refiner, Singapore Petroleum Corp, did not fall through. The
US$220 million deal fell apart in November after CAO lost funds
due to its oil derivatives loss.

Satya, which claimed it lost a total of SG$85 million in the
unfulfilled SPC deal, is seeking a minimum of SG$47 million in
damages.

CAO's failure to file in its defense against Satya's claims has
entitled Satya to ask for default judgment against the troubled
company for the full amount of damages it asked for in its
original claims. But CAO can still apply to the courts for an
extension wherein it can file for legal defense.

To date, CAO has not shown any inclination for filing.

* Thailand Won't Need Debt Relief Despite Tsunami Devastation
-------------------------------------------------------------
Thailand's economy is strong enough to cope with the recent
Asian tsunami disaster, so the country will not need debt
relief, Reuters said, citing a senior finance ministry official
Friday.

"Our financial sector is sufficiently strong and Thai commercial
banks are prepared to provide fresh loans to businesses hit by
the tsunami," Pannee Sathavarodom, head of the finance
ministry's public debt management office, told Reuters.

"With our position, we see no need to enter the moratorium
programme. We are not affected to the extent of running out of
funds to repay debt," she said.

Paris Club of creditor governments are examining countries hit
by tsunami whether there is a need for it to be given a debt
moratorium.

"We are going to examine the situation of the countries affected
by the tsunami; in particular, all the countries of the region.
- Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Myanmar, Thailand and so
forth," said a source close to the Paris Club, an ad hoc forum
for western creditor governments.

Thailand's government and state enterprises have tapped mostly
concessional loans from 11 members of the Paris Club.  It has
about $8.6 billion in outstanding government loans from Paris
Club members, of which $8.2 billion came from Japan.

A total of at least 125,000 people were killed by the Tsunami,
which was the strongest in 40 years. In Thailand some 4,500
people including about 2,000 foreigners were killed.  The killer
wave slammed in the southern provinces of Thailand where tourism
is the major industry.   

It caused damage and destruction to hotels in main resort
provinces of Phuket, Phang Nga and Krabi and is estimated to
cause tens of thousands of Thais out of work.
