JB WERE: Winds Up with AU$20-Mln Loss
-------------------------------------
Investment bank Goldman Sachs JBWere (GSJBW) is set to wind up
JB Were Private Equity Fund at a loss of AU$20 million after
suddenly discovering that the financial state of one of the
fund's key investments is irreversible, Sydney Morning Herald
says.

Around 2800 million retail investors, who committed AU$145
million the private equity fund in mid-2000, are expected to
receive little more than 50 cents per unit from the wind-up.

JB Were has written off a 40 percent stake in one of its
investments, Advanced Building Technologies, worth AU$14
million. The full value of the investment in Advanced has been
written off, and fund investors have been told that the GSJB
executive in charge of private equity, Bernard Stanton, has
quitted.

Advanced's board believed the business was performing in line
with expectations until "significant recent developments" raised
questions about Advanced's true position. Subsequent
investigations had revealed, "the actual financial position of
Advanced was irretrievable".

Advanced was placed in voluntary administration on March 30, and
investors in the fund have been told that an offer to purchase
Advanced's trading subsidiaries has already been accepted. GSJBW
has also told them a report by the voluntary administrator on
Advanced's sudden collapse is expected next month.

MILLER'S RETAIL: Aims to Finish Asset Review by May
---------------------------------------------------
Miller's Retail Limited will conduct a strategic review of its
businesses to examine asset valuations and potential divestment
opportunities, Dow Jones reports.

The ailing discount retailer expects to complete the review as
soon as possible and announce the results before the end of May.

The firm is reportedly on its way to a major reform after it
sold a stake to Investec Wetsworth Private Equity, which is seen
seeking structural and board changes at the troubled retailer.
The acquisition is believed to be the start of a major
restructuring of the Miller's struggling discount variety
operations.

Miller's pointed out that its discount variety chains Go-Lo,
Crazy Clarks and Makro Warehouse are suffering from "excess
stock, constrained buying practices and difficult market
conditions".

* ASIC Bans Melbourne Property Developer, Concrete Supplier
-----------------------------------------------------------
The Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) has
banned Mr. Mario Michael Spiteri, a Melbourne property developer
and concrete supplier, from managing corporations for two years.

Mr. Spiteri was banned after an ASIC investigation found he was
a director of Ecto Pty Ltd (Ecto), Thorncrest Pty Ltd
(Thorncrest), and Waleri Nominees Pty Ltd (Waleri Nominees) when
they were wound up. ASIC may disqualify individuals from
managing companies for up to five years if they are officers of
at least two companies that are wound up.

Liquidators were appointed to Ecto and Thorncrest in 2000, and
to Waleri Nominees in 2002.

ASIC was concerned that Mr. Spiteri traded three companies into
liquidation, and additionally, that he did not understand and
adequately perform his role and duties as a director of the
companies. When the companies failed, Mr. Spiteri did not
surrender company records to the liquidators as required by law.

"ASIC's decision serves as a warning that company directors
obligations do not cease once an administrator is appointed. Mr
Spiteri had a duty to assist the liquidators in order to protect
creditors', ASIC's Deputy Executive Director of Enforcement,"
Mr. Allen Turton said.

Mr. Spiteri has the right to appeal to the Administrative
Appeals Tribunal to review ASIC's decision.

Background

Ecto purchased a property in Bay Street Port Melbourne, which
was to be developed into the 'Holy Trinity Apartments'. Ecto
lacked sufficient funds to complete the project and ceased the
building works because it was unable to pay creditors more than
AU$1 million.

Thorncrest was also involved in property development and failed
to pay unsecured creditors. Thorncrest had purchased a church in
East Melbourne, which was to be converted into 11 apartments.
Waleri Nominees traded as Econo-Mix Building and Garden
Supplies, which supplied mini-mix concrete and other products
used by builders, bricklayers and gardeners.

The companies' liquidators have found that the creditors of
Ecto, Thorncrest and Waleri Nominees will receive less than 50
cents in the dollar.


* ASIC Must Authorize Payments to Insolvency Administrators
-----------------------------------------------------------
The Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) has
urged all insolvency practitioners to inform the regulator about
their remuneration, Investor Daily says.

The practitioners must advised the ASIC whether they have
received, in their voluntary administration work, payments which
have not been properly assessed and fixed either by the
creditors of the businesses or the court.

The Corporations Act 2001 requires that the creditors or the
court first determine remuneration to voluntary administrators.
ASIC executive director of enforcement Jan Redfern said these
issues must be clarified in the interest of creditors.

ASIC's action followed the Federal Court's recent orders to
KordaMentha, the administrators of accounting group Stockford,
regarding the firm getting an AU$2.8 million payment without
being authorized by Stockford's creditors or the court.

The Federal Court found in December 2004 that KordaMentha had
drawn AU$2.42 million in remuneration without authority.
Stockford and its 82 subsidiary companies went under voluntary
administration in February 2003.

The calculation of the basic loss per share is based on the net
loss for the six months ended 31 January 2005 of HK$10,196,000
(six months ended 31 January 2004: HK$27,852,000) and
2,256,666,196 (six months ended 31 January 2004: 2,256,666,196)
ordinary shares in issue during the period.

The computation of diluted loss per share does not assume the
exercise of the potential shares since their exercise would
result in a reduction in loss per share.

CHINA STRATEGIC: Unveils Group Reorganization Scheme
----------------------------------------------------
At the request of Hanny Holdings Limited and Mr. Paul Y, the
board of China Strategic Holdings Limited proposes to place
before China Strategic Shareholders a proposal for the group's
reorganization which, if approved and implemented, will result
in:

(i) China Strategic continuing to be a public listed company
with its subsidiaries concentrating on its business of
manufacturing and trading of battery products, investments in
securities and property and investment in unlisted investments;

(ii) All other subsidiaries of the China Strategic Group
carrying on property development and investment holding
business, and all other associates of the China Strategic Group
carrying on manufacturing and marketing of tires and business of
providing package tour, travel and other related services being
grouped under the GDI Group; and

(iii) The GDI Shares, following the injection of the
Distributing Business into GDI, being distributed in specie to
the China Strategic Shareholders whose names appear on the
register of members of China Strategic on the Record Date on the
basis of one GDI Share for one Consolidated China Strategic
Share.

It is intended that subject to the fulfillment of certain
conditions precedent, general offers will be made for both the
Consolidated China Strategic Shares and the GDI Shares as
detailed below.

The distribution in specie of the GDI Shares will be effected by
way of distribution from the special capital reserve account of
China Strategic of an amount equivalent to the carrying value of
GDI, which will be ascertained immediately prior to completion
of the China Strategic Group Reorganization. No application will
be made for the listing of the GDI Shares on the Stock Exchange
or any other stock exchange.

The China Strategic Group Reorganization is conditional on,
among other things, completion of the Capital Reorganization and
the approval by the Independent China Strategic Shareholders
being obtained.

It is, however, not subject to completion of the Share Sale
Agreement having taken place.

CAPITAL REORGANIZATION

The Capital Reorganization involves the Capital Reduction, the
Subdivision and the Share Consolidation. The Capital Reduction
will involve cancellation of the paid-up capital of HK$0.05 on
each issued China Strategic Share and reduction in the nominal
value of each issued China Strategic Share from HK$0.10 to
HK$0.05. The Capital Reduction also involves the cancellation of
the entire share premium account of China Strategic.

The Subdivision involves the subdivision of each authorized but
unissued China Strategic Share into two Reduced China Strategic
Shares of HK$0.05 each. The Share Consolidation will then be
implemented to consolidate every two Reduced China Strategic
Shares of HK$0.05 each into one Consolidated China Strategic
Share of HK$0.10.

The Capital Reorganization is subject to fulfillment of the
conditions as detailed below.

CHANGE OF BOARD LOT SIZE

The China Strategic Board also proposes to change the board lot
size for trading from 2,500 China Strategic Shares to 5,000
Consolidated China Strategic Shares upon the Capital
Reorganization having become effective.

POSSIBLE VOLUNTARY OFFER FOR THE GDI SHARES

Subject to the approval by the Independent Hanny Shareholders of
the GDI Offer and completion of the China Strategic Group
Reorganization, Somerley, on behalf of Well Orient (an indirect
wholly-owned subsidiary of Hanny), will make a voluntary offer
to the shareholders of GDI to acquire all the GDI Shares, other
than those then owned or agreed to be acquired by Well Orient,
its associates and parties acting in concert with it (but the
GDI Offer will be extended to Paul Y), on the following basis:

Option 1:

For every five GDI Shares *      one Hanny Share plus HK$1.8 in
cash

Option 2:

For every five GDI Shares *      one Hanny Bond with face value
of HK$15.0

* The GDI Shares will be issued based on the number of the
Consolidated China Strategic Shares in issue on the Record Date.

Independent China Strategic Shareholders and Paul Y can either
accept Option 1 or Option 2, but not a combination of both, in
respect of the GDI Offer.

Share Sale Agreement and possible mandatory offer for the China
Strategic Shares

The China Strategic Board has been informed by Paul Y and Hanny
that they have entered into the Share Sale Agreement with the
Offeror on 10th March, 2005 pursuant to which and subject to,
inter alia, the implementation of the China Strategic Group
Reorganization in full, the Offeror agreed to acquire
135,000,000 China Strategic Shares (equivalent to 67,500,000
Consolidated China Strategic Shares upon the Capital
Reorganization having become effective) from each of Paul Y and
Hanny, which shares represent approximately an aggregate of
approximately 30.6% of the issued share capital of China
Strategic, for an aggregate consideration of HK$52,110,000,
equivalent to HK$0.193 per China Strategic Share (or HK$0.386
per Consolidated China Strategic Share).

Subject to completion of the Share Sale Agreement, Kingston
will, on behalf of the Offeror, make a mandatory cash offer to
all the China Strategic Shareholders to acquire all the
Consolidated China Strategic Shares, other than those held by
the Offeror and parties acting in concert with it, on the
following basis:

For each Consolidated China Strategic Share HK$0.386 in cash
(equivalent to HK$0.193 in cash for each China Strategic Share)

The China Strategic Offer will not be extended to Paul Y and
Hanny.

SUSPENSION AND RESUMPTION OF TRADING

At the request of Hanny, trading in the Hanny Shares on the
Stock Exchange was suspended with effect from 9:45 a.m. on 8th
March, 2005 pending the release of this announcement. Trading in

BANK MANDIRI: Allegedly Examined Two Loan Cases Under AGO Probe
---------------------------------------------------------------
Bank Mandiri is reported to have previously conducted an
internal investigation as early as 2003 into loan cases now
being examined by prosecutors in the recent probe by the
Attorney General's Office (AGO) on fraud allegations, the
Financial Times reports.

Prosecutors are looking into the possibility of bank employees
being bribed or colluding with corporate clients, and are
focusing on four particular cases, two of which were already
being examined by the bank itself.

In the first case, Bank Mandiri extended IDR40.43 billion credit
in 2002 to contractor Siak Zamrut Perkasa, which claimed to
handle the Indonesian operations of US-based Caltex company. But
the government audit report showed that loan officers at the
bank's Pekanbaru branch didn't verify the claim, and extended
the loan with fake documents provided by the company's owner as
proof.

It seems that the bank knew something wasn't right in 2003, when
the company failed to provide other documents. Dutch authorities
also halted some of the money that was loaned, after a transfer
to the company owner's account in the Netherlands looked
`suspicious." The bank's efforts to foreclose the Company's
assets did not push through, as such assets were frozen by a
local court.

In the other case, the audit report showed that Bank Mandiri
loaned IDR55.83 billion to two companies, Arthabhama Textindo
and Arthatrimustika Textindo, based on due diligence by a third
party. The audit report showed that the bank's credit analysis
never visited the companies' factories and didn't consider the
government forecasts of a slump in the textile industry before
extending the loan, which was later classified as non-performing
by the bank itself.

Until now, the bank is still dealing with the companies. People
familiar with the matter said that the bank gave a deadline to
the owner to come up with a rescue plan before it will foreclose
on the Company.

FUJITSU LIMITED: Cuts Profit Forecast
-------------------------------------
Fujitsu Limited announced on April 20 that it has revised its
forecast consolidated and unconsolidated financial results for
the fiscal year ended March 31, 2005 (FY 2004) from the previous
forecast made on January 28, 2005 at the time of its third-
quarter financial results announcement.

(For fiscal year from April 1, 2004 to March 31, 2005)


(billion yen)
                      Net Sales    Operating Income   Net Income

Percentage of Increase or  0.6%      -33.3%             ---
Decrease
FY2003 results             2,788.5     32.9              17.0


Although Fujitsu recorded a full-year unconsolidated net loss,
the loss was taken for the purpose of reducing future financial
risk and was unrelated to cash flow. The company is currently on
track for improvement in earnings and anticipates continuing
stable earnings going forward. The projection of a fiscal year-
end dividend of 3 yen per share remains unchanged. (This is to
be formally decided at a scheduled meeting of Fujitsu's Board of
Directors on April 27, 2005 and ratified at the Annual
Shareholders' Meeting.)

Explanation of Revisions to FY 2004 Financial Results Forecast

Although net sales were roughly in line with previous
projections, due to deterioration in Software & Services
earnings, the Company fell short of its previous forecast for
operating income. Regarding net income, as detailed below, the
results were significantly under forecast as a result of
extraordinary gains and losses and a valuation allowance taken
for deferred tax assets. The Company has revised its forecast
results at this time because the degree of change in projected
net income over the previous forecast exceeded 30%.

Extraordinary Gains

1) Gains from Sales of Marketable Securities

                  Consolidated     Unconsolidated
               JPY133.2 billion   JPY141.4 billion

On February 22 and 23 of 2005, Fujitsu sold portions of its
shareholdings in FANUC Ltd. and Advantest Corporation. Income
from the sales of these marketable securities (consolidated:
129.2 billion yen; unconsolidated: 137.9 billion yen) was
recorded as an extraordinary gain.

2) Gains on Transfer of Operations

Consolidated           Unconsolidated
JPY36.5 billion       JPY12.9 billion

On March 25, 2005 Fujitsu signed a formal agreement with joint
venture partner Hitachi, Ltd. regarding the transfer of plasma
display panel operations.

Together with gains from the transfer of other business
operations, gains from this transfer were recorded as an
extraordinary gain.

Extraordinary Losses

3) Real Estate Valuation Losses

Consolidated            Unconsolidated
JPY15.2 billion        JPY15.2 billion

Real estate valuation losses on idle property holdings were
reported as extraordinary losses.

4) Restructuring Charges

Consolidated 20.0 billion yen*1

Restructuring charges were recorded as extraordinary losses, as
Fujitsu carried out personnel reductions or realignment and
disposed of assets, primarily at domestic manufacturing
subsidiaries.

*1: Includes 6.8 billion in losses recorded through the third
quarter of the fiscal year.

5) Valuation Losses on Shareholdings in Unconsolidated
Affiliated Companies 60.7 billion yen*2

Valuation losses on shareholdings in affiliated companies,
primarily domestic manufacturing subsidiaries, were recorded as
extraordinary losses on an unconsolidated basis.

*2: Includes 3.0 billion in losses recorded through the third
quarter of the fiscal year.

Corporate Tax Adjustments

6) Recording of Valuation Allowance for

Consolidated         Unconsolidated
JPY93.5 billion     JPY86.3 billion

Deferred Tax Assets

Having significant tax loss carry forwards from the
restructuring of its operations in fiscal 2001 and fiscal 2002,
Fujitsu calculated deferred tax assets at year-end based on
future taxable income. At this time, in light of delays in the
recovery of taxable income from business operations primarily
relating to unconsolidated accounts, the company decided to
record a valuation allowance to cover the amount in excess of

HYNIX SEMICONDUCTOR: Creditors Approve Debt Refinancing
-------------------------------------------------------
In an effort to graduate early from a debt workout program,
creditors of Hynix Semiconductor Inc. on April 19 approved a
KRW1.51 trillion debt-refinancing package, reports Yonhap News.

According to main creditor Korea Exchange Bank, more than 75% of
the Company's creditors approved the package to allow the
Company to be free from creditor control 20 months ahead of the
planned conclusion of its debt workout program in 2006.

Creditors currently own 81% of the Company after several
bailouts, due to a government-forced merger with a local merger
in 1999 that amounted to huge debt. Now, with the recent
agreement, creditors can sell 30% of their stake in the Company
beginning July, and the remaining 51% would be sold gradually
from 2006 to 2008.

The Company posted KRW2.02 trillion operating profit last year
on increased sales of its dynamic random access memory (DRAM)
chips, with increased sales totaling KRW6.09 trillion. It is
expected to post positive results for the first quarter this
year.

SK NETWORKS: Creditors Sell 5.5% Stake to Recover Loans
-------------------------------------------------------
SK Networks creditors are planning to sell their 5.5% stake
worth KRW235.5 billion in order to recover part of their loans,
Reuters News reports.

Main creditor Hana Bank and other local banks who own a combined
56% stake in the oil trading firm, have agreed to sell 13
million shares in the Company, reducing their stake to 50.1%.
The stake sale would garner capital gains of KRW121.5 billion
for creditors.

The international auction is scheduled next month, and creditors
will select a lead manager for the sale. Potential buyers of the
shares must agree not to sell the shares before December 2007.

SK Networks has been in a creditor-led restructuring program
since 2003, after escaping bankruptcy due to a KRW1.21 trillion
accounting scandal. The Company is expected to graduate from the
restructuring program in 2007.

The Company has posted an 85% increase in operating profit to
IDR354 billion in 2004, and is targeting to increase sales to
KRW14 trillion this year.

LITYAN HOLDINGS: Must Settle MYR51.5 Mln Default
------------------------------------------------
Lityan Holdings Berhad (LHB) announced that on April 20, 2005,
the Company and its subsidiary, Lityan Incorporated (LII),
received a Writ of Summons and Statement of Claim from Bank
Islam Berhad for default in repayment of the facilities granted
to LII by the bank.

Bank Islam Berhad claimed for the following:

a) the principal sum of USD$13,542,082.55 (MYR51.5 million),
calculated as at Oct. 8, 2004;

b) overdue profit on the sum of USD$742,184.64 (MYR2.82 million)
calculated as at Oct. 8, 2004;

c) profit at the rate of 2% over and above Bank Islam Berhad's
costs of funds over a period of 6 months, calculated on the sum
of USD$13,542,082.55 (MYR51.5 million), from Oct. 8, 2004 until
the date of full settlement;

d) costs of Bank Islam Berhad's action on a full indemnity basis
to be paid by LHB and LLI; and

e) such further and other relief that may be deemed fit and just
by the Court.

With regard to the Company's negative net tangible assets (as
indicated in its Dec. 31, 2004 unaudited financial report), the
above amounts would have a material effect on the Company's
finances, but no effect on its operations, as the claims would
appear as a contingent liability.

BACNOTAN CONSOLIDATED: Plans to Buy Steam Power Plant
-----------------------------------------------------
Bacnotan Consolidated Industries Inc. is setting its sights on
one of the state's major geothermal power plants, relates The
Philippine Daily Inquirer.

The holding company, through its 25-percent owned unit Trans-
Asia oil and Energy Corp., is interested at three power plants
that National Power Corporation will privatize. The facilities
include 193-megawatt Palinpinon power plant in Negros Oriental
province, the 150-megawatt plant at the Bacon-Manito area in
Sorsogon province, and the 275-megawatt plant in Tiwi, Albay.

Bacnotan and its parent Philippine Investment Management Inc.
(PHINMA) are reportedly looking at opportunities arising from
the restructuring and privatization of Napocor focusing mainly
on possible participation in geothermal power plants.

The firm is also firming up plans to invest in education,
medical services, hotel operation, and housing.

DIGITAL TELECOMMUNICATIONS: Bloated Costs Stretch 2004 Net Loss
---------------------------------------------------------------
Higher expenses pulled down revenues of Digital
Telecommunications Philippines Inc. (Digitel) resulting to a net
loss of Php1.80 billion in 2004, according to The Philippine
Daily Inquirer. The reported net loss is wider compared to a net
loss of Php1.29 billion in 2003.

Digitel earlier said operating revenue in 2004 rose 13.3 percent
to Php7.33 billion, boosted by its mobile phone operations,
launched in March 2003.

The firm's costs and expenses ballooned to Php7.7 billion last
year from Php7.02 billion in 2003, partly due to the aggressive
marketing of its wireless business as well as network-related
expenses.

Digitel said its Sun Cellular subscriber base reached 1.7
million at the end of February. It hopes to boost the number to
3 million by year-end, backed by an aggressive marketing
strategy that includes unlimited call and text plans for
subscribers.

MAYNILAD WATER: ING-led Group Mulls Buyout
------------------------------------------
A consortium led by investment bank ING Barings Group and the
Ayala group is reportedly keen on acquiring Maynilad Water
Services Inc., according to the Philippine Daily Inquirer.

The new bidder, which also includes the World Bank's investment
arm International Finance Corporation, met Wednesday with
Department of Finance officials to express their interest to buy
the ailing water concessionaire.

The ING-led consortium is proposing to assume the financial
requirements of regulator Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage
System (MWSS) on top of paying Maynilad's liabilities to
creditor-banks as required under its rehabilitation plan.

DMCI Holdings Inc., the first Company that expressed interest to
acquire Maynilad, said it would pursue its bid despite the entry
of the ING-led consortium.

MAYNILAD WATER: DMCI Eyes 100% Stake
------------------------------------
DMCI Holdings Inc. is seeking full control over water utility
firm Maynilad Water Services Inc. because it does not want to be
limited in its decisions by a partner, Business World reports.

Consuji firm DMCI is reportedly conducting negotiations with
both the Lopez group and its French partner for the purchase of
their shares. The Lopezes, through Benpres Holdings Corp.,
controls Maynilad with a 60 percent stake. Its French partner,
water utility firm Ondeo Services Philippines Inc., owns the
remaining 40 percent.

Sources said buying out Ondeo would prevent management disputes
given that Ondeo may have different ideas in running Maynilad,
and may contradict the future decisions of DMCI in the water
concessionaire.

DMCI said it does not mind acquiring the debt-saddled firm,
since Maynilad has already been allowed to increase its rates.

DMCI had already informed Maynilad of its intention to buy the
Lopezes' stake, but has not yet received a reply. The firm is
now doing due diligence on Maynilad. DMCI President Isidro
Consunji said the audit is likely to be completed after two
weeks.


NATIONAL POWER: PSALM Fixes Sale of Big Hydro Power Plants
----------------------------------------------------------
The Power Sector Assets and Liabilities Management Corp. (PSALM)
is arranging the sale of the first batch of National Power
Corporation's (Napocor) big hydroelectric power generating
assets, The Philippine Star reports.

PSALM vice president for asset management and disposal Froilan
Tampinco said the agency expects the sale of Pantabangan and
Masiway hydropower plants by end of next month or early June.

The 100-megawatt (MW) Pantabangan will be auctioned off
separately from the 12-MW Masiway power plant. The two
facilities, which are used both for power generation and water
irrigation, will be privatized one day apart.

PSALM will issue the public notices for the sale of the two
power plants as soon as the issues are resolved with the
National Irrigation Authority and National Water Regulatory
Board.

At least two foreign and two local firms have signified their
interest in bidding for Pantabangan, while six local consortiums
may bid for Masiway.

ASIA HOTEL: Sees Improvement in Financial Position
--------------------------------------------------
Asia Hotel Public Company Limited (ASIA) issued to the Stock
Exchange of Thailand (SET) a progress report of its corporate
rehabilitation for disclosure to investors.

ASIA and its subsidiaries have put much more effort to carry out
the corporate rehabilitation to strengthen the shareholders'
equity. The progress is as follows:

(1) Asia Hotel Public Company Limited

During the past years, ASIA has performed pursuant to the debt
restructuring agreement made on August 1999. The loan balance as
of December 31, 2004 was reduced to THB1,559.79 million as a
result. On July 16, 2004 ASIA proposed to the financial
institutions the revised debt restructuring agreement to
strengthen its financial position, which is in negotiation at
present.  It is expected that the conclusion will be finalized
within the second quarter of 2005.

(2) Asia Pattaya Hotel Company Limited

Result from the debt restructuring agreement in January 2003,
the debt of Asia Pattaya was lessened to the agreed amount of
THB323.85 million.  After repayment according to the
aforementioned agreement, the loan balance as of December 31,
2004 was decreased to THB288.00 million.  Asia Pattaya has
renovated its hotel facilities to boost its business potential
and to satisfy customers' need.

(3) Asia Airport Hotel Company Limited

The loan of Asia Airport of THB662.66 million from The Bangkok
Metropolitan Bank was initially transferred to Petchburi Asset
Management (PAM) and then transferred to Sukhumvit Asset
Management (SAM). The aforesaid debt transferring has resulted
in slowing down the process of debt restructuring.

Finally, the debt restructuring agreement between Asia Airport
and SAM has been concluded and signed by both parties on
December 24, 2004.  The significant terms and conditions are
summarized as follow:

Asia Airport accepted the outstanding loan balance as of October
31, 2004 of THB662.66 million and the accrued interest of
THB539.23 million. SAM allowed Asia Airport to repay the
mentioned debt at the amount of THB261 million within 180 days
from the agreement date. After the said repayment is completed,
SAM agreed that the rest of the debt would be cancelled.

(4) Zeer Property Company Limited

Zeer Property has signed the debt restructuring agreement with
the financial institution on January 17, 2000 and signed the
agreement with Thailand Asset Management (TAM) on December 9,
2003. After repayment according to the aforementioned agreement,
the loan balances as at December 31, 2004 were reduced to
THB133.16 million and THB158.85 million respectively.

Zeer Property has developed more rental space of 18,487 square
meters and had big computer dealers and bookstores rented the
space.  This year operating results were expected to be greater
than those of last year.

After the repayment according to the debt restructuring
agreement between Asia Airport and SAM as mentioned in no. 3
above are completed, the shareholders' equity greatly improve
within the second quarter this year.

Additionally, if the debt restructuring agreement as mentioned
in no.1 is finalized, the financial positions of ASIA and its
subsidiaries will be strengthened.  However, ASIA still has some
risks due to the terms and conditions as mentioned in no. 1 that
is still in negotiation.

This information is provided for notification to the SET and for
disclosure to investors.

DATAMAT: SEC Instructs Company to Amend Financial Statement
-----------------------------------------------------------
Previously, Datamat Public Company Limited (DTM) submitted its
audited yearly consolidated financial statements ending 2004 on
March 1, 2005.

Its shareholders' equity of the audited yearly consolidated
financial statements ending 2004 compared with that of ending
2003 shows recessive shareholders' equity from THB15.69 million
to (THB67.59) million.

The Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET), therefore, posts an SP
sign on DTM's securities effective March 2, 2005 onwards.
Later, on March 2, 2005 DTM submitted the new version of its
audited yearly consolidated financial statements ending 2004.
DTM's financial status as shown in the new version of financial
statements was significantly different from the original one.

Its shareholders' equity changed from negative (THB67.59)
million, to positive THB1.25 million. Since, The SET and the SEC
have been in the procedure to inspect DTM's financial status,
which may affect the company's status in REHABCO sector.

Now, the SEC has instructed DTM to amend its annual financial
statements ending December 31, 2004 audited by Mr. Prawit
Wipusirikup, regarding allowance for doubtful accounts and
submit its amended financial statements within 6 May 2005.

In addition, the SEC has instructed DTM to submit a special
audit report, issued by another independent auditor, regarding
the consolidation with a subsidiary company and the presentation
of DTM's failure to repay restructuring debts.  DTM has to
submit the special audit report to the SEC within June 6, 2005.

Since DTM's financial status is unclear and may affect the
company's status in REHABCO sector. Therefore, the SET has still
posted an SP (Suspension) until there is clean information about
its financial status. The SET would like DTM's shareholders and
investors to scrutinize DTM's report carefully.

THAI ENGINE: Hopes to Profit in 2005
------------------------------------
The Central Bankruptcy Court issued an order accepting the
petition to reorganize the business of Thai Engine Manufacturing
Pcl (TEM) in accordance with the Bankruptcy Act BE 2483
(Amended) on April 4, 2000, and appointed Churchill Pryce
Planner Co. Ltd. (CPP) as the Planner.

Subsequently on November 7, 2000, the Reorganization Plan (the
Plan) was considered and approved at the creditors meeting.  On
December 20, 2000 the CBC approved the Plan and appointed CPP as
the Plan Administrator.

On February 1, 2002, the creditors meeting agreed to amend the
Plan.  On April 4, 2002, the Plan was amended and approved by
the CBC.

The Plan consisted of 7 Steps:

(1) Restructuring of the Liabilities;

(2) Transferring certain assets and liabilities to Special
Purpose Companies;

(3) Transferring collateral securities to secured Lenders;

(4) Reducing equity capital;

(5) Increasing equity capital and Conversion of Debt to Equity;

(6) Partial debt forgiveness; and

(7) Relisting the core business units on the SET under TEM.

At present, Step 1 through 5 of the above has been completed.
Step 6 and 7, which included partial loan write-off and
relisting of the core business unit has been done.

On August 22, 2003, CBC approved the resignation of CPP as the
Plan Administrator and appointed TEM as the temporary Plan
Administrator.  On September 18, 2003, the Official Receiver
arranged for a creditors meeting to elect the new Plan
Administrator, in which TEM and Asian International Planner Co.
Ltd. were appointed the co-Plan Administrators. On October 6,
2000, the CBC approved the appointment.

Management of the co-Plan Administrators

When the current co-Plan Administrators took on the job, their
goals were to strengthen TEM financially and make its business
viable.  The goals of the co-Plan Administrators consist of:

(1) Restoring TEM's market share to the level before it
experienced a financial problem, which was about 25 percent by
coordinating the financial, marketing, and production functions
more systematically and efficiently.

In addition, the management of TEM has been negotiating with
Mitsubishi Heavy Industry Co. Ltd. (MHI) to extend the exclusive
rights of TEM as the producer and distributor of Mitsubishi
diesel engines.  The negotiation is currently on hold, but is
expected to continue when MHI's internal reorganization is
completed.

(2) For the financial planning, the co-Plan Administrators
believe that TEM will require additional capital to successfully
execute its business plan.  TEM has made some progress in
bringing a potential investor and is now in the process of
cooperating with the potential investor to develop a business
plan.  TEM plans to notify the SET of any substantial
development on the negotiation with the investor.

(3) For the marketing plan, the co-Plan Administrators started
to reestablish the connection with TEMs former distributors,
such as the Cooperatives and Agricultural Bank, etc., to rebuild
the business image, product image and after sales services,
including supports for spare parts and maintenance parts.

In 2004, TEM sold 9,266 units of diesel engines, a 158.11
percent increase from 2002 (Table 1).  For the quarterly
performance of 2004, saw volume sales increase continuously.

(4) For its production lines, TEM has been working to repair and
restore all the production lines that had been halted during its
financial problem and buying back the machinery it had
previously sold.  TEM has also been negotiating with its
suppliers on its improved credit condition in order to regain
its credit terms with the suppliers.

(5) TEM has restructured its organization to improve management
efficiency and agility.  It has worked to improve employees'
morale and belief in the future operations of TEM.

2003 Performance

In 2004, sales revenues were THB241.36 M, a 180.85 percent
increase from 2003; its operating margin was 23.415 percent, a
significant improvement from -3.588 percent and 10.766 percent

Rehabilitation Management

In May 2004 the plan administrators received three separate
proposals from Pitayatorn Co. Ltd. by Mr. Surachai Kositsariwong
to acquire the loans from the creditors and/or invest in the
Company to accommodate the requirements of the creditors.

The Co-Plan called for the Creditors Meeting four times on May
17, May 31, June 21 and July 6, 2004 to inform the creditors of
the framework for the debt repayment, some creditors accepted,
some one asked to increase the purchasing but the others did not
have express their concerns. Nevertheless, the proposals expired
before sufficient number of creditors approved the proposal in
principle.

After negotiations with this investor fell through in October
2005, S.A.M.C. Co. Ltd. by Mr. Suthisak Lohsawat approached the
Company to consider a capital investment and negotiate a
settlement with the creditors from the capital injection on the
conditions that the Company has to revise its reorganization
plan to allow the investment.

The Investor has appointed White and Case (Thailand) Co., Ltd.
as its legal advisor to advise on the terms and conditions of
the petition to revise the reorganization plan. The plan
administrators has informed the main creditors of the
negotiations and is currently preparing the terms and conditions
for the petition to revise the reorganization plan.

The plan administrator is organizing a meeting between the
Investor and the creditors on April 18, 2005 to propose the
terms and conditions of the investment. The petition is expected
to be submitted to the official receiver by April 2005.

Future Plan-New Products

of diesel engines to the requirements of the market.  TEM plans
