HIH INSURANCE: Former Director Admits Errors of Judgment
--------------------------------------------------------
The former director of failed HIH Insurance told a court he made
"stupid errors of judgment" in lying to HIH top executive Ray
Williams in an attempt to secure AU$2 million in funds for a
struggling Company, reports the Sydney Morning Herald.

Rodney Adler appeared in the NSW Supreme Court yesterday to give
evidence of the first day of his three-day sentence hearing.

Last month, Mr. Adler pleaded guilty to four charges for making
false statements and failing in his duties as a director. Each
of the four charges carries a jail term of up to five year.

Mr. Adler admitted before the court he had lied to Mr. Williams
when he said he would invest AU$500,000 Business Thinking
Systems (BTS), in which he and HIH had an interest.

He sought AU$2 million from HIH in October 2000 to prop up the
struggling business and told Mr. Williams he had invested
AU$500,000 of his own money.

"In a broad sense it was stupid errors of judgment. But if one
were to be pushed, it would be to cut corners in order to
achieve a result, that result being the survival of BTS," Mr.
Adler said.


ION LIMITED: Delays Creditors Meeting to Give Way to Asset Bids
---------------------------------------------------------------
ION Limited's administrators have again postponed a creditors
meeting to give potential buyers more time to review the
Company's assets, The Australian says.

The administrators moved the second creditors meeting,
originally scheduled on January 10, to May 6 after the Federal
Court approved a four-week extension in the administration
period.

Administrator Colin Nicol said the extension was not a sign of
problems in moving the assets. He added the outcome of the sale
process is expected by mid-April.

Administrator Colin Nicol said interested parties were
conducting due diligence on all of Ion's saleable assets.

In January, ION's lucrative fuel services division was sold for
AU$144 million. An unfinished engine-block plant in the
Melbourne suburb of Altona would be sold separately as an empty
factory site.
Mr. Nicol does not expect the proceeds of the asset sales to
cover all of ION's debt, but he is certain all employee
entitlements will be paid.

ION fell into administration in December 2004 after a consortium
of banks, owed AU$400 million by the Company, found a AU$380
million hole in the Company's financial forecasts.

JAMES HARDIE: Reviews Status in Context of Baryulgil Mine
---------------------------------------------------------
As announced on 21 December 2004, James Hardie, the NSW
Government, the Australian Council of Trade Unions (ACTU),
Unions NSW and asbestos support groups have signed a non-binding
Heads of Agreement for James Hardie to provide long-term funding
to a Special Purpose Fund for use in meeting asbestos-related
personal injury and death claims against former James Hardie
group subsidiaries Amaca Pty Ltd, Amaba Pty Ltd and ABN60 Pty
Ltd.

In the absence of clarity on the liability position of Marlew
Mining Pty Ltd (formerly Asbestos Mines Pty Ltd), Amaca Pty Ltd
and ABN60 Pty Ltd, James Hardie is reviewing their status in the
context of the Baryulgil mine and the proposed Special Purpose
Fund and the principles agreed to and set out in the Heads of
Agreement. In the meantime, the current position and some
relevant history is set out below.

Between 1940 and 1944, Asbestos Mines Pty Ltd was owned by
Wunderlich Ltd, a Company not related to the James Hardie group.
Between 1944 and 1953, a former James Hardie subsidiary (now
Amaca Pty Ltd) owned an interest in Asbestos Mines Pty
Ltd via a joint venture with Wunderlich Ltd. From 1954 until
1976, Asbestos Mines Pty Ltd was a wholly owned subsidiary of
James Hardie Industries Ltd (now ABN60 Pty Ltd). In
1976, Asbestos Mines Pty Ltd (later renamed Marlew Mining Pty
Ltd) was sold to Woodsreef Mines Ltd, since renamed Mineral
Commodities Ltd (a Company listed on the Australian Stock
Exchange).

Any proven asbestos related personal injury and death claims
from members of the Baryulgil community against the Medical
Research and Compensation Foundation subsidiaries Amaca Pty Ltd
or Amaba Pty Ltd, or against the former James Hardie entity
ABN60 Pty Ltd are the responsibility of those entities and would
fall within the scope of the funding arrangements anticipated in
the Heads of Agreement.

James Hardie does not have any involvement in decisions
regarding the defense, conduct or settlement (if applicable) of
those claims, or of any claims against Marlew Mining Pty
Ltd.

We understand that the workforce of the Baryulgil asbestos mine
was never more than 40 people at any one time and that through
the early 1940s to the closure of the mine in 1979 the total
workforce was approximately 350 people. Some of these employees
only worked in the mine for a period of days. The population of
the Baryulgil township oscillated between around 100 and 200
people.

James Hardie and the NSW Government are continuing to work
towards settling the terms of a binding agreement setting out
the detailed arrangements to implement the principles agreed to
in the Heads of Agreement signed on 21 December 2004.

QANTAS AIRWAYS: Faces Malaysian Threat
--------------------------------------
Embattled Qantas Airways is facing another competition in the
Australia to London kangaroo route, according to The Advertiser.

Malaysia Airlines is reportedly set to take on Qantas in the
lucrative route, spending AU$238.8 million upgrading its first
class cabins. The carrier is refurbishing 17 Boeing 747-400 and
17 Boeing 777-200 aircraft for its long-haul flights in a bid to
capture a greater market share of the global high-end traveler
market.

Malaysia Airlines expects to snatch market share away from
Qantas, as it reportedly has superior product in both first and
business classes than its Australian rival.

SANTOS LIMITED: Indonesia Calls for Speedy Oil Exploration
----------------------------------------------------------
Indonesia is urging Santos Limited to accelerate oil and gas
exploration in the Jeruk field in East Java province, Reuters
reports.

The Indonesian Ministry of Mines and Energy wants Santos to
speed up its exploration because the Jeruk field, which has the
potential to produce 150,000 barrels per day of crude oil, is
expected to boost Indonesia's oil production.

Santos operates and has a 50 percent interest in the Jeruk
field, which lies offshore from the Sampang Production Sharing
Contract (PSC) in East Java. The other stakeholder is PT Medco
Sampang.

Indonesia expects to raise crude oil production by around 25
percent to 1.182 million barrels per day (bpd) by 2008.

SONS OF GWALIA: Headed for a Court Tussle with IMF
--------------------------------------------------
The administrator of Sons of Gwalia is likely to face litigation
funder IMF (Australia) in court over claims the collapsed miner
failed to keep the market fully informed of its hedging
commitments and reserves position, The Courier Mail reports.

IMF will reportedly seek a declaration that a recent ruling by
the Federal Court limiting the right of shareholders to recover
damages does not apply to Gwalia's case.

IMF Managing Director Hugh McLernon insisted that investors who
bought Gwalia shares in the Company after January 1, 2001 should
be treated as unsecured creditors. This would rank them
alongside other unsecured creditors, who have claims totaling
more than $900 million, but would also enable them to pursue
directors for the balance of their loss, and to retain their
shares if the Company is recapitalized.

IMF has agreed to represent Gwalia shareholders who bought stock
between January 1, 2003, and August 29, 2004 when the miner
appointed a voluntary administrator.

Gwalia called in administrators seven months ago when an
internal review identified a massive shortfall in reserves that
left the Company unable to meet extensive forward sales
contracts.

Gwalia's administrator, Ferrier Hodgson, has been seeking buyers
for the Company's world-class tantalum operations but now
appears to have returned to its original option of restructuring
the business. The gold division, which sparked the group's
plunge into administration, has been sold to St. Barbara Mines.

Remarks:

1. BASIS OF PREPARATION

The Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public accountants (HKICPA)
has issued a number of new and revised Hong Kong Financial
Reporting Standards and Hong Kong Accounting Standards
(collectively referred to as the new HKFRS) which are effective
for accounting periods commencing on or after 1 January 2005.
The Group has not early adopted these new HKFRSs in the
financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2004. The
new HKFRSs may result in changes in the future as to how the
Group's financial performance and financial position are
prepared and presented.

The financial statements have been prepared in accordance with
Hong Kong Financial Reporting Standards (which also include
Statements of Standard Accounting Practice and Interpretations)
issued by HKICPA, accounting principles generally accepted in
Hong Kong and the disclosure requirements of the Hong Kong
Companies Ordinance and applicable disclosure provisions of The
Rules Governing the Listing of Securities on the Growth
Enterprise Market of The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited
(the GEM Listing Rules)

The measurement basis used in the preparation of the financial
statements is historical cost.

At the balance sheet date, the Group's current liabilities
exceeded its current assets by approximately HK$6,951,000.

Notwithstanding the above results, the financial statements have
been prepared on a going concern basis, the validity of which is
dependent upon the success of the Group's future operations, its
ability to generate adequate cash flows in order to meet its
obligations as and when they fall due such that the Group can
meet its future working capital and financing requirement and
the continuing financial support from its shareholder.

Subsequent to 31 December 2004, the Company raised approximately
HK$3,500,000 from open offer as additional working capital
of the Group. Furthermore, a shareholder of the Company,
Favourite Success Trading Limited, has agreed to undertake the
trade and other payables amounting to approximately
HK$3,880,000. The directors are confident that the Group's
future operations will be improved and will be able to generate
sufficient cash flows in order to meet its obligations as and
when they fall due over the next twelve months.

Accordingly, the directors are satisfied that it is appropriate
to the financial statements on a going concern basis.

2. DIVIDENDS

No dividends have been paid or declared by the Company for the
year ended 31 December 2004 (2003:HK$Nil)

3. LOSS PER SHARE

The calculation of the basis loss per share is based on the
Group's net loss for the year of approximately HK$14,023,000
(2003: net loss of HK$9,840,000) and the weighted average of
approximately 55,613,000 ordinary shares (2003: 41,330,500
ordinary shares) in issue during the year after adjusting for
the effects of the share consolidation on 10 January 2005. The
basic loss per share for 2003 had been adjusted accordingly.

Diluted loss per share for the years ended 31 December 2004 and
2003 have not been shown as the share options outstanding during
the years had an anti-dilutive effect on the basic loss per
share for the years.

DAN FORM: Unit Enters Liquidation Proceedings
---------------------------------------------
Dan Form Holdings Company Limited (0271) announced that the
Second Intermediate People's Court of Beijing Municipality (the
PRC Court) has accepted its application to liquidate Beijing Dan
Yao Property Co Ltd (Dan Yao), a major subsidiary of the
Company, on March 10, 2005. Dan Yao is a sino-foreign joint
venture Company established in the PRC whose registered capital
is held as to 85% by the Company.

The Company made the application for Liquidation. As disclosed
in the Company's 2003 Annual Report, due to no fault of Dan Yao,
Dan Yao was unable to obtain the property title certificate for
Dan Yao Building for a long time. This has resulted in legal
proceedings issued against Dan Yao for breach of contract as a
result of the failure in completing the relevant property title
certificates for the pre-sold property units in a timely manner.
At the same time, most of the completed property units could not
be sold as a result of the long term inability to obtain the
relevant property title certificate, and the bank loans and
project sums were unable to be paid in time.

As a result of this, the Company has made advances to Dan Yao in
the aggregate sum (including accrued interest) of approximately
HK$61,420,000. The Company has written to consult the relevant
parties on this matter on many occasions, with a view that the
above abnormal circumstances could be improved gradually with
the lapse of time.

Although the relevant department in charge in Beijing has
investigated into this matter and has subsequently issued the
property title certificate, certain creditors have, by reason of
the loss of Dan Yao in the legal proceedings, applied for
preservation of most of the assets of Dan Yao to secure their
debts. To protect the legal and proper interest of the Group in
Dan Yao, and to enable that the interest of all creditors of Dan
Yao can be dealt with fairly, openly and in accordance with law
and that Dan Yao could operate in a normal manner, the Company
has no alternative but to apply to the PRC Court for the
Liquidation of Dan Yao on December 23, 2004. Since the
acceptance of the application by the PRC Court on March 10,
2005, Dan Yao has ceased paying its debts in accordance with PRC
law.

According to the advice of the Company's PRC legal advisers, if
the PRC Court eventually decides that Dan Yao should be
liquidated, the assets of Dan Yao will be sold through tender
and the proceeds obtained will be used to repay the debts of Dan
Yao in the following order in accordance with the relevant PRC
law:

(1) expenses of the Liquidation;
(2) wages owed to employees and insurance fees;
(3) taxation payments due;
(4) project sums due;
(5) bank loans with secured interest; and
(6) land premium due.

A reasonable estimate of the total amount of the above sums is
approximately RMB109,230,000 (approximately HK$103,047,000)
(excluding tax refund). The remaining proceeds will be
distributed to all the creditors of Dan Yao, including the
Company, on a pro-rata basis in accordance with the amount of
their debts.

According to the audited accounts of Dan Yao for the year ended
31st December 2003 (as audited by (Beijing Huasong Certified
Public Accountants) which were prepared in accordance with PRC
accounting principles and not adjusted according to Hong Kong
Generally Accepted Accounting Principles), the carrying value of
the total assets of Dan Yao as at the same date is
RMB266,420,000 (approximately HK$251,340,000), the total
liabilities are RMB173,440,000 (approximately HK$163,622,000)
and the shareholders' funds are RMB92,980,000 (approximately
HK$87,717,000).

According to the audited accounts of Dan Yao as at September 30,
2004 (as audited by (Beijing Huajing Certified Public
Accountants Ltd. Corp.) which were prepared in accordance with
PRC accounting principles and not adjusted according to Hong
Kong Generally Accepted Accounting Principles) and after
adjustments including taking into account the effect of a forced
sale of the assets on Liquidation, the actual total assets of
Dan Yao as at the same date are RMB159,930,000 (approximately
HK$150,877,000), the total liabilities are RMB161,310,000
(approximately HK$152,179,000) and the capital deficiency is
RMB1,370,000 (approximately HK$1,293,000).

According to the latest judgments of the court in respect of the
legal proceedings over the title of Dan Yao Building, up to and
including 20th March 2005, the liabilities of Dan Yao are
increased by RMB106,580,000 (approximately HK$100,547,000) and
the assets based on carrying value are increased by
RMB63,660,000 (approximately HK$60,057,000).

As the Company has made full provision for the Group's
investment in and advances to Dan Yao in the audited accounts of
the Group for the year ended December 31, 2003, the Directors
therefore consider that, irrespective of whether Dan Yao is
liquidated or not and irrespective of whether the Company is
able to obtain repayment for its advances to Dan Yao or not, the
application for Liquidation will not have financial impact on
the Group.

The Company will make further announcement if there is progress
on the application for Liquidation.

approximately HK$10,758,000 (2003:loss of approximately
HK$16,964,000) and 764,886,000 ordinary shares
(2003:764,886,000) in issue during the year.

The computation of diluted loss per share has not assumed the
exercise of options outstanding during the year because their
exercise would reduce loss per share.

BANK MANDIRI: Quake Shakes Shares Trading
-----------------------------------------
Indonesian shares were lower at midday on March 29, 2005, due to
concerns that the central bank may raise interest rates to
protect the rupiah, reports Dow Jones.

Shares in Bank Mandiri fell 2.4 % to IDR1,650/share. The recent
earthquake that struck the nation led to the negative reaction
in the stock market.

According to dealers, investors are still selling bank stocks
because of fears that increased interest rates would adversely
affect the bank's performance. The market was expected to close
lower.

airline was enforcing safety measures, the Asahi Shimbun
reports.

The dispatch of an 11-member special inspection squad headed by
Civil Aviation Bureau (CAB) Director General Teiji Iwasaki,
began their inspection of the JAL group at Haneda Airport in
Tokyo and related locations, checking whether departments

The Civil Aviation Bureau will continue the assessment until the
end of April and has demanded that the airline by mid-May submit
a report on specific measures it has applied to prevent further
problems.

In mid-March, the ministry ordered JAL to improve its safety
measures following a series of safety violations starting in
January.

KEIYO CO.: JCR Places BBB- Rating Under Credit Monitor
------------------------------------------------------
Japan Credit Rating Agency (JCR) has placed the ratings on the
long-term debts of Keiyo Co. Ltd. (BBB-) under Credit Monitor.


Issue    Amount(bn)  Issue Date   Due Date       Coupon
JPY bonds no.1 Y7   June 23, 2003  June 23, 2006 1.09%

RATIONALE:

Keiyo announced on March 28, 2005 the downward revision of the
earnings forecasts for fiscal 2004 ending February 28, 2005 due
to lower-than-expected sales and more-than-expected cost for
store closure.

The Company would incur a pretax loss before extraordinary items
of JPY300 million and a net loss of JPY3,290 million. The
earlier forecasts were a pretax profit before extraordinary
items of JPY230 million and a net loss of JPY690 million. Keiyo
would also write down the long-lived fixed assets for the fiscal
year.

The loss from the write-downs will amount to JPY13.5 billion.
The earnings power of the home center business of Keiyo has been
lowering. It is uncertain whether or not Keiyo can regain the
cash flow generation capability it enjoyed in the past.

Impairment of capital due to the loss arising from the write-
downs is larger than JCR's estimate. JCR placed the ratings for
Keiyo under Credit Monitor to examine carefully impact of the
loss on the financial structure and future earnings trend of
Keiyo to be reflected on the ratings.


KUBOTA CORPORATION: S&P Raises Rating to BBB+
---------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services on Tuesday raised its long-
term rating on Kubota Corp. to 'BBB+' from 'BBB', reflecting a
substantial decrease in the risk of asset devaluation and profit
deterioration, supported by the improved condition of its
capital structure.

The outlook on the rating is stable.

"Kubota is Japan's largest farm machinery maker and enjoys high
recognition globally," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst
Junko Miyakawa.

"The Company's mainstay internal combustion equipment business
generates steady profits, thanks to its diversified global
revenue base, which offsets weak growth prospects in the
Japanese market."

In the last three fiscal years, Kubota recorded about 40
billion of losses while restructuring its less profitable
businesses, which entailed selling off real estate and golf
courses and reducing its housing material business. As a result,
asset devaluation risk has subsided and Kubota's profit-
generating capabilities have improved. In addition, the Company
wrote off JPY53 billion of unfunded pension liabilities in
fiscal 2003 and transferred a substantial portion of its
postretirement obligations and assets to the government in
fiscal 2004. These liabilities had stood at JPY197.1 billion in
March 2003, and their reduction-along with lowered pension
expenses going forward-have improved the Company's cost
structure.

Kubota maintains stable profitability and cash flow generation,
mainly in its internal combustion equipment business, while its
capital expenditures have decreased. As a result, the Company
has made progress in debt reduction by applying free cash flow
to repayments. Its outstanding debt balance is expected to drop
to about JPY300 billion at the end of March 2005, a decrease of
almost 20% from the total five years prior.

Standard & Poor's estimates Kubota's debt-to-capital ratio will
be reduced to 38% at the end of March 2005 from 45% five years
earlier. Even if unfunded pension liabilities, which the Company
estimates to be JPY94.1 billion, are included, the ratio should
increase to about 44%. While Kubota's efforts to enhance sales
financing for farming machinery may lead to an increase in total
debt, Standard & Poor's believes the Company's balance sheet is
unlikely to deteriorate significantly given its sound asset
quality.

MITSUBISHI MOTORS: Names Jerry Berwanger to Lead U.S. Facility
--------------------------------------------------------------
Mitsubishi Motors North America (MMNA) on Monday has named Jerry
Berwanger as its Executive Vice President and Chief Operating
Officer, Manufacturing Division, promoting him to run the
Company's lone North American assembly plant located in Normal,
Illinois.

Mr. Berwanger, who most recently was Senior Vice President of
Quality and Operations at the facility, takes over leadership of
the plant from Rich Gilligan, who in January was appointed
President and CEO of MMNA.

Mr. Berwanger, 56, is a 33-year automotive industry veteran.
Gilligan hired him in March 1999 as MMNA Manufacturing Vice
President of Quality after 27 years with Ford Motor Company,
where he held various positions at the automaker's plants in
Kansas City and Chicago. He was promoted to Senior Vice
President of Quality for MMNA in 2003, adding responsibility for
all Manufacturing Operations in 2004. He will report directly to
Gilligan.

"Jerry's leadership in Quality has been a linchpin in MMNA's
rise to award-winning performance in the J.D. Power IQS
rankings," said Gilligan. "He's a real 'people-person,' and the
perfect choice to lead Manufacturing's contributions toward
MMNA's return to profitability."

"I'm excited to lead the team in Normal at this challenging time
for our Company," said Berwanger. "We have a critical role to
play in Mitsubishi's global revitalization, and I join our
entire workforce in embracing that challenge, beginning with our
production launch next month of the all-new Eclipse."

The 2006 Eclipse, which is expected to be in dealer showrooms by
Memorial Day, ahead of an official sales launch in June, shocks
the senses with an eye-catching bold design and dynamic
performance enhancements that take the nameplate's legendary
status among import sport enthusiasts to new heights. Mitsubishi
has integrated refined power, futuristic styling and dynamic
handling in the fourth-generation Eclipse to appeal to both
upscale, affluent consumers and younger drivers who exhibit a
passion for driving and life every day.

The new Eclipse is featured on the cover of Motor Trend
magazine's March issue as one of the "Hot Drives Worth Waiting
For."

As part of Mitsubishi Motors "Best-Backed Car" program, all new
2006 Eclipse models are backed by a comprehensive new vehicle
limited warranty that covers the vehicle from bumper-to-bumper
for five-years/60,000 miles. In addition, the powertrain is
covered by a 10-year/100,000-mile limited warranty, while body
panels have a seven-year/100,000-mile anti-corrosion/perforation
limited warranty.

Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc., (MMNA) is responsible for
all manufacturing, finance, sales, marketing, research and
development operations of Mitsubishi Motors Corporation in the
United States and Canada. Mitsubishi Motors sells coupes,
convertibles, sedans and sport utility vehicles through a
network of approximately 580 dealers. For more information,

SEVEN INDUSTRIES: JCR Affirms BBB- Rating
-----------------------------------------
Japan Credit Rating Agency (JCR) has affirmed the BBB- rating on
the long-term debts of Seven Industries Co. Limited.

RATIONALE

Seven Industries is Japan's leading manufacturer of laminated
materials. It became a consolidated subsidiary of Sumitomo Corp.
in March 2004. Seven Industries has been restructuring the
operations, inviting a person from Sumitomo Corp. as the top
management.

While the effects of restructuring have yet to be realized,
performance deteriorated due to stagnant demand. Seven
Industries plans to improve the earnings power through increase
in efficiency, the improvement will be slow. It plans to limit
the capital expenditures to depreciation. Therefore, the
financial structure will remain unchanged. Sumitomo's
involvement in the management of Seven Industries will have
positive impact on the materials procurement, sales and
fundraising of Seven Industries.

SNOW BRAND: Moody's Reviews B2 Ratings for Possible Upgrade
-----------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has placed the B2 senior unsecured
debt ratings of Snow Brand Milk Products Co., Ltd. under review
for possible upgrade. The rating action reflects the Company's
constantly recovering operating performance and financial
profile.

Moody's notes that Snow Brand has continuously achieved its
targets under its reconstruction plan. The Company recorded net
profit in fiscal 2003, ended March 31, 2004, for the first time
in five years, and remained profitable in the first half of
fiscal 2004. Moody's expects Snow Brand to record an improved
performance for the overall fiscal year, supported by its solid
position in butter, margarine and cheese markets.

In its review, Moody's will assess Snow Brand's strategy to
further strengthen its competitiveness and earnings stability
under its reconstruction plan, backed by its main banks.

ROTEM COMPANY: To Pursue Further Restructuring, Downsizing
----------------------------------------------------------
Rotem Company plans to include early retirement schemes and
selling some assets in its restructuring program, reports Asia
Pulse.

The Company has found difficulty in meeting annual production of
1,200 cars, as they have received orders for 500 cars only this
year.

According to analysts, an overlarge workforce and excess
production is hindering the Company from experiencing profit.

The Company posted a KRW53 billion net loss for 2004, despite
having reduced its workforce by 500 employees in October and a
10% pay cut. The Company denies reports of plans to sell/close a
plant in Uiwang, to the south of Seoul.

SAMSUNG LIFE: Talks to Sell 17.5% Stake Fall Through
----------------------------------------------------
One of the shareholders of Samsung Life Insurance Co. said that

Journal.

Creditors of now-defunct Samsung Motors were negotiating with
preferred bidder for the stake sale, U.S.-based Newbridge
Capital, with Warburg Pincus LLC and partners as the secondary
bidder.

According to creditor Seoul Guarantee Insurance Co., it seemed
that they couldn't agree on the sale terms with the bidders.

DMCI HOLDINGS: Has Not Taken Legal Actions Against Government
-------------------------------------------------------------
DMCI Holdings issued this disclosure in reference to the news
article entitled "DMCI moves to recover P300M from BCDA"
published in the March 28, 2005 issue of BusinessWorld (Internet
Edition).

The article reported that:

"Publicly-listed construction Company DM Consunji Inc. (DMCI)
may sue the government to recover its P300-million deposit for
its participation in the North Luzon Railways (Northrail)
project. The deposit was made in 1996 when DMCI was picked as
the government's strategic partner for the project. But the
Company has been trying to recover it since 2000, when it
finally decided to abandon the project because the government
failed to live up to its end of the deal.

"A DMCI executive also said a lawsuit was just one of many
options to recover the money. `The best option is to go to
court. But so far, we have not exercised that [option] yet.
Another option is to talk to them for an amicable settlement,'
the executive said.

"He added DMCI was negotiating with state-run Bases Conversion
Development Authority (BCDA), Northrail's proponent, for the
return of the P300 million.

"'We have not yet been informed of the results of [their last]
board meeting,' when they took up the matter, the executive
said."

DMCI Holdings, Inc. in its letter to the Exchange dated March
29, 2005, disclosed that:

"We would like to inform you that the Company through its
subsidiary DMCI Project Developers, Inc. (PDI) has been
negotiating with the Bases Conversion Development Authority
(BCDA) for the return of its subscription deposit of Php 300
million. Furthermore, the Company has not taken any legal
actions yet."

MANILA ELECTRIC: Steps Up Energy Conservation Campaign
------------------------------------------------------
The Manila Electric Company (Meralco) advises power consumers to
use electricity wisely especially during the summer season when
power consumption doubles, according to Asia Pulse.

Meralco Vice President for Corporate Communications Elpi Cuna
said that simple but often neglected energy saving tips are a
big help in lowering use of electricity, mostly in households.

Some appliances known to use a lot of electricity during summer
include air-conditioners, refrigerators, freezers, electric
fans, water pumps and entertainment appliances.

Meanwhile, the soaring prices of oil in the global market has
prompted the government to adopt a four-day workweek scheme from
April to May as part of its energy-conservation efforts.

MANILA ELECTRIC: Outstanding Debt Shrinks to Php101.2 Bln
---------------------------------------------------------
Manila Electric Company (Meralco) has reduced its amount of
outstanding debt as of Nov. 30, 2004 to Php101.2 billion,
according to The Manila Times.

The Lopez-owned power utility firm disclosed that it has inked
an agreement last year with its domestic and foreign commercial
banks to pay some US$228 million in maturing loans due in the
next two years.

Last year, Meralco pursued a comprehensive liability management
plan to address its schedule debt obligations and other
financial requirements. It engaged existing lenders in its bank-
refinancing program that provides a more balanced debt maturity
profile for the Company.

The Bank of the Philippine Island Capital Corp. and Citibank
N.A. Manila/Citigroup Global Markets Asia Ltd. are among those
lenders, which acted as joint arrangers for the refinancing
facility. A total of 30 foreign and domestic banks participated
in the refinancing.


MANILA ELECTRIC: To Determine Persons Entitled to Vote at ASM
-------------------------------------------------------------
At the regular meeting of the Board of Directors of Manila
Electric Company (Meralco) held Monday, March 28, 2005, the
Board has fixed April 11, 2005 instead of February 28, 2005, as
the record date for the determination of stockholders entitled
to notice and vote at the Annual Stockholders Meeting of Meralco
to be held on Tuesday, June 28, 2005, starting at 9:00 a.m., at
the Meralco Theatre, Lopez Building, Ortigas Avenue, Pasig City.


NATIONAL BANK: Tycoon Gives Government Time to Seek Other Buyers
----------------------------------------------------------------
Business tycoon Lucio Tan has agreed to give the government more
time to look for a buyer of its 45 percent stake in the
Philippine National Bank (PNB), Business World reports.

Both the government and Mr. Tan reportedly decided to postpone a
warrant, which expires in November, to at least one year or
until May 5, 2007. Contrary to earlier reports, Mr. Tan has
agreed not to immediately exercise the warrant under his 2002
shareholder deal with the government.

The warrant gives Mr. Tan the right to acquire the government's
45-percent stake in PNB at its floor price. If the Mr. Tan will
be successful in bidding for the planned block sale, He will
again become the majority shareholder in the semi-private bank.

The PNB board has already drafted a resolution for the one-year
extension of the warrant, which will still require the approval
of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and the
Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE).

CHINA AVIATION (S): To Release PwC Report this Week
---------------------------------------------------
China Aviation Oil (Singapore) will release this week the
PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) report on the trading scandal that
emerged last November, Channel News Asia relates.

PwC is making an inquiry on how CAO could lose more than S$900
million from trading oil derivatives.  It is also looking at
whether all trading losses have been properly accounted for
based on generally accepted accounting principles.

The auditing firm will also review why CAO failed to disclose
its trading losses promptly to the market, why its internal
financial controls didn't work and who's ultimately responsible.

The complexity of the probe prolonged the investigations that
made PwC release the findings on a later date.
