The facility is said to be at a significantly reduced cost to
previous facilities and is in place until February 2008.

Parmalat Australia's Managing Director David Lord said that the
firm will be a core member of the restructured group provides us

now well behind us," Mr. Lord declared.

Recent Developments

On June 1, 2005, Qantas confirmed that the delivery of its first
A380 would be delayed by six months as a result of manufacturing
issued at Airbus. Qantas is now scheduled to take delivery of
the first of its 12 new A380 aircraft in April 2007. Qantas is
developing contingency plans to ensure there is no impact on its
schedules or available capacity during the six month delay.
Possible contingencies under discussion include deferring the
retirement of a number of aircraft, redirecting capacity, and
bringing forward the delivery of other aircraft on order. Qantas
will be working closely with Airbus to ensure to ensure the new
deadline is met and will also be seeking compensation from
Airbus in line with the terms of its contract.

On May 11, 2005, Qantas announced an additional 11 domestic
flights per week for Western Australian. From July 2005, Qantas
will add five extra Perth-Brisbane services, three additional
Perth-Melbourne flights, a third Perth-Cairns service and a
second seasonal Broome-Sydney service. A second seasonal Perth-
Kumumurra service operated by QantasLink was added from 18 May
2005. The flights will provide an additional 1,700 seats in each
direction each week.

On April 29, 2005, the Qantas Group announced that it would move
to all-inclusive pricing for its airfare and package holiday
advertising in Australia from May 11, 2005. Qantas made the
decision in support of the Federal Government's recent
announcement that it would amend the Trade Practices Act in
relation to component pricing in a number of industries. Qantas,
QantasLink, Australian Airlines and Jestar have all moved to the
new advertising style.

QANTAS AIRWAYS: Fires Security Manager as Scandal Escalates
-----------------------------------------------------------
Qantas Airways' has sacked a security manager over a security
controversy at Australia's airports, Asia Pulse says.

The airline has terminated the contract of former drug detective
and the carrier's security manager Alan Conwell as a result of
an ongoing investigation.

In evidence before the commission, Mr. Conwell was caught on
phone taps trying to help a criminal associate of fugitive
Michael Hurley avoid prosecution.

The move came after a secret Australian Customs Service report,
completed last September, found some Sydney airport workers had
been involved in drug smuggling and stealing, and some could
pose a terrorist threat.

The reports also detailed serious security breaches and illegal
activity by baggage handlers, aircrew, ramp and trolley workers,
security screeners and cleaners.


QANTAS AIRWAYS: Relaxes Mobile Rules
------------------------------------
Qantas Airways will allow domestic passengers to make mobile
phone calls once their flight has landed and as it approaches
the airport terminal, The Advertiser reports.

The airline will also permit business passengers to use mobile
phones and personal digital assistants equipped with "flight
mode" on board once the seatbelt sign has been turned off after
take-off.

Flight mode switches off the transmitter in a phone or PDA but
allows the device's other functions to be used. Users will be
required to activate flight mode prior to turning the device off
and all electronic equipment will still need to be switched off
for landings and take-off.

In a relaxation of rules that align the Australian carrier more
closely with overseas practices, Qantas will allow passengers on
domestic flights, from June 7, to make calls after the aircraft
has landed.

Qantas's softer stance on mobile phones comes as the US Federal
Communications Commission is considering whether to completely
lift its ban on mobile phone usage in planes.

The airline originally banned all mobile phone use on board
because of hotly debated fears the devices could interfere with
electronics on aircraft.

However, it has previously bowed to demand from business
customers and allowed passengers on Cityflyer flights docked at
aerobridges to use the devices until the cabin door was shut.

Qantas said the new policy, which has been approved by the Civil
Aviation Safety Authority, will initially apply only to domestic
flights.

WAVERLEY WOOLLEN: State Rejects Bailout
---------------------------------------
Failed Waverley Woollen Mills is very unlikely to get financial
support from the State Government, Mercury News relates.

The state has ruled out injecting fresh capital into the veteran
travel rug and blanket manufacturer in Launceston, since it
wants to concentrate more in securing employment for the mill
workers.

Economic Development Minister Lara Giddings said the sale of
Waverley's assets offered hope for the mill's 80 employees.

The 130-year-old firm entered administration last month, with
total debt of AU$3 million.

WESTBUS: Depot Sales Cast Cloud on Future
-----------------------------------------
A surprise decision to sell six depots owned by failed private
bus operator Westbus has mired hopes for recovery, says the
Daily Telegraph.

Westbus administrators have offered for sale multi-million
dollar depots at Seven Hills, Penrith, Bonnyrigg, Northmead,
Dural and Windsor as individual properties without conditions
they remain depots.

Drivers and staff were shocked by Administrator Peter Yates'
unexpected decision, since it could leave 520 buses homeless.
The move has also cast doubts on the jobs of 800 people, as well
as the transport of 100,000 daily commuters and schoolchildren.

Transport Workers Union representatives said they were led to
believe that Westbus, which crumbled in February under debts of
AU$100 million, would be sold as an ongoing concern. They said
they will do whatever they can to prevent the depots' sale.

Mr. Yates reportedly opted for the depot sales in a bid to
maximize return to creditors.

WINEORB: Class Suit Looms
-------------------------
Disgruntled investors of failed investment fund Wineorb are
considering a group action to legally recover their wine, The
Australian says.

Around 130,000 bottles of premium Australian wine worth over
AU$6 million are now kept by liquidator Peter Ngan at Winevault
in Sydney's Artamon.

Wineorb investors, including Tony Carr and Paul Bruton, said
they are worried because the liquidator has refused to divulge
any information about the true value of the wine.

Mr. Ngan, an accountant with Ngan & Co, was replaced by Nick
Crouch as liquidator of another failed wine fund, Heritage Fine
Wines, earlier last month. He stepped down amid claims his
decision to buy ANZ's AU$324,000 in unpaid loans to Heritage,
making him the biggest secured creditor, created an untenable
conflict of interest.

BANK OF CHINA: Releases 2004 Annual Report
------------------------------------------
On May 31, Bank of China (BOC) formally released its 2004 annual
report with approval from its Board of Directors.

The year 2004 was a watershed in terms for BOC's development and
reform. Significantly, Bank of China Limited was incorporated as
a joint-stock bank.  The Bank took full advantage of expanding
market opportunities, strengthened its corporate governance and
enjoyed steady growth.

In 2004, Bank of China Group (the Group) had an operating profit
RMB 57.8 billion, and net profit for the year was RMB 20.9
billion. Excluding the effect of the net gain from sale of
shares in Bank of China Hong Kong (Holdings) Limited in 2003,
operating profit increased by 21.3 percent, and net profit kept
nearly the same compared to year 2003. The key ratios of return
on average total assets and return on average shareholders'
funds were 0.61 percent and 10.04 percent, respectively.

At the end of 2004, BOC's capital adequacy ratio was 10.04%,
which reflects a strengthening of the Group's capital position.
The disposition of NPLs has, through write-offs and sales, been
substantially completed. Asset quality has improved
significantly, with a non-performing loan ratio of 5.12% and NPL
provision coverage of 68.02 percent.

During 2004, the Group's operating income was RMB104.7 billion.
Excluding the effect of the net gain from sale of shares in Bank
of China Hong Kong (Holdings) Limited in 2003, operating income
increased 22.2 percent. The Group's net interest income
increased by RMB 13.1 billion, or 18.2 percent, to RMB 85.0
billion in 2004.

This increase was attributable to the effects of steady growth
in the average balance of interest-earning assets and a widening
of the net interest spread. Income from intermediary business
activities grew steadily. Net fee and commission income rose by
16.4 percent to RMB 8.6 billion and net trading income increased
by 96.4 percent to RMB8.8 billion.  

At December 31, 2004, the Group's total assets were RMB 4,270.4
billion, 7.3 percent more than the previous year-end. The
Group's outstanding balance of loans was RMB 2,146.5 billion.
After excluding the effect of the write-offs and sales of NPLs
as part of Joint Stock Reform, loan growth was 11.3% during
2004. Consumer lending experienced robust growth as a result of
continued market expansion and BOC's introduction of innovative
new products. At December 31, 2004, the Group's balance of
deposits was RMB 3,342.5 billion, an increase of 10.1 percent
over the previous year-end.

Bank of China's 2004 Annual Report reflects its commitment to
continuing improvement in financial reporting and disclosure in
many areas. First, the Bank's 2004 financial statements reflect
the adoption of the Accounting System for Financial Institutions
(2001), which is more consistent with international practice.
Notably in this regard, the financial statements reflect
provisions for all impaired assets that are based on their
estimated recoverable amounts. Management believes that these
financial statements properly reflect BOC's financial position
and results of operations. PricewaterhouseCoopers has audited
these financial statements and issued an unqualified opinion.

Next, these financial statements reflect the adoption of the
classification provisions of International Accounting Standard
No. 39.  In this regard, BOC's investments in debt securities
have been accounted for at either fair value or amortised cost.  
In addition, all derivatives have been accounted for at fair
value. Furthermore, the bank is substantially consistent with
the requirements on disclosure and presentation of financial
instruments of IAS 39.

Finally, consistent with the CSRC disclosure requirements for
listed banks, the financial statements include significantly
expanded disclosures and more detailed account breakdowns.

The abstract of the 2004 Annual Report is available through
newspapers and can also be viewed through Bank of China's
website at http://www.bank-of-china.com/

BANK OF COMMUNICATIONS: Sees RMB7.5-8.3 Bln Profit This Year
------------------------------------------------------------
The Bank of Communications (BoComm) is expected to report a net
profit of RMB 7.5-8.3 billion this year, with a return on equity
(ROE) between 13.23-14.67 percent, Infocast News reports, citing
China Everbright Securities.

The brokerage said that BoComm's loan growth slipped from 28.9
percent as in 2003 to 16.4 percent last year, mainly due to the
impact of the macroeconomic control measures. It is projected
that the commercial and retail loan growths will be 9.5 percent
and 44.3 percent respectively, similar to the 2004 figures.

China Everbright estimated that the lender's net interest margin
(NIM) will widen from last year's 2.59 percent to 2.61 percent
this year, while operating will take a 13.2 percent dive. The
2005 provisions are estimated at RMB3.78 billion, equivalent to
0.51 percent of gross advances. This figure is the same as the
running average for the past 3 years, but higher than the 2004
figure of 0.48 percent.

The brokerage added that the bank's 2004 cost-to-income ratio
was 60.8 percent, which is the highest among listed banks.
Accordingly, BoComm has room to improve its operating
efficiency. It is predicted that the bank's cost-to-income ratio
can be reduced to 53.5 percent in 2005.

CHINA CONSTRUCTION: Citigroup May Be Excluded From $5-Bln IPO
-------------------------------------------------------------
Citigroup Incorporated may be excluded from this year's largest
initial public offering (IPO), a $5 billion sale for China
Construction Bank, Bloomberg News reports.

People involved in the transaction said Construction Bank didn't
invite Citigroup to meetings with investment bankers from Morgan
Stanley and China International Capital Corporation during the
past two weeks. The three companies were hired in 2004 to
arrange the bank for an IPO.

Richard Tesvich, Citigroup's spokesman in Hong Kong, declined to
comment.

Citigroup still is negotiating to remain in the transaction, the
people said. Chief Executive Officer Charles Prince has met with
Construction Bank's new Chairman Guo Shuqing in Beijing two
weeks ago, the people said, without being more specific.

Construction Bank, which is planning to sell shares in Hong Kong
this year, wants to boost investor confidence in its management
by appointing foreign bankers and accountants as independent
directors.

MOULIN GLOBAL: Updates Status of Bank Facilities
------------------------------------------------
Reference is made to Moulin Global Eyecare Holdings Ltd's (389)
announcement dated April 28, 2005 relating to, amongst other
things, the delay in publication of the Company's results for
the year ended December 31, 2004 and the change of auditors.

On 29 April, 2005, the Company and its subsidiaries (the Group)
were in technical default of their banking arrangements by
virtue of trading in shares in the Company having been suspended
on the Stock Exchange for more than nine trading days breaching
a covenant in a loan agreement entered into with a syndicate of
banks, as announced by the Company on 12 November, 2004,
comprising a term loan facility of up to HK$450,000,000 and a
revolving credit facility of up to HK$300,000,000.

As at the date of this announcement, the Group has not received
from the syndicate of banks any claims or demands for repayment
of the aggregate loan amount of HK$750,000,000 as a result of
the technical default.

The Group has received demand letters from eight of its bank
creditors (the Bank Creditors) requiring the immediate repayment
of an aggregate of some HK$329 million. The receipt of demand
letters from Bank Creditors also triggered cross default
provisions in other bank facilities of the Group. Save for the
demand letters that have been received, the Directors are not
aware of any other actions being instituted by Bank Creditors
against the Group.

As at the latest practicable date for the purposes of this
announcement, the Group, excluding Eye Care Centers of America,
Inc. (ECCA), had unaudited aggregate bank borrowings of some
HK$2.8 billion. Subsequently, on May 9, 2005, the Company met
its Bank Creditors, and at that meeting, received informal
indications of support from them. Formal withdrawal of one of
the demand letters has been received as at the date of this
announcement.

On May 9, 2005, a steering committee of Bank Creditors was
formed comprising representatives of seven of them to oversee
the Company's discussions with Bank Creditors in relation to the
Group's indebtedness then. An independent financial adviser has
been engaged by the steering committee, at the expense of the
Company, to review the operations of the Group (the Review). In
the meantime, Bank Creditors are continuing to make facilities
of a revolving nature, including trade lines, available to the
Group.

The Company is presently discussing a formal standstill with
Bank Creditors pending the results of the Review and the
submission of a recapitalisation proposal from Anglo Chinese
Corporate Finance, Limited (Anglo Chinese) by way of a rights
issue, other issue of securities, asset sales or the
introduction of a strategic investor.

The Company and its Bank Creditors are reviewing a draft
standstill agreement and the Company has been and continues to
cooperate with the steering committee and its independent
financial advisers in providing access to information.
Meanwhile, the Company will announce as necessary further
developments relating to its discussions with Bank Creditors.
The Company has undertaken not to give preference to any Bank
Creditor over another in terms of loan repayments or creating or
perfecting security, pending a standstill agreement having been
agreed.

Save for four mortgage loans with an aggregate outstanding
principal of some HK$8.6 million as at 6 May, 2005, none of the
Group's other assets were pledged as collateral for the Group's
bank borrowings in Hong Kong.

OPERATIONS OF THE GROUP

The Group designs, manufactures and distributes quality eyewear
products to customers worldwide. The Group is the largest
eyewear manufacturer in Asia and the third largest worldwide,
with production volumes exceeding fifteen million frames per
year. It is expected that the Group's recent acquisition of
ECCA, the second largest optical retail chain as measured by net
revenues in the United States, will transform the Group into a
vertically integrated eyewear company with global operations.

Notwithstanding that a formal standstill agreement with Bank
Creditors is not yet in place, and providing that Bank Creditors
do not enforce demands made, the board of directors of the
Company (the Board) believes that the Group has sufficient
internally generated working capital for its operations. The
Group's day-to-day operations have not been impacted by the
status of its bank facilities.

As at the latest practicable date for the purpose of this
announcement, the Group held approximately HK$90 million in an
operating account with a bank in Hong Kong where no borrowing
relationship exists with the Group.

The acquisition of ECCA was completed on March 1, 2005. As
previously announced, the acquisition was funded by
shareholders' equity and by the issue of senior subordinated
notes and bank borrowings. These bank facilities were secured by
substantially all of the assets of ECCA, including its capital
stock and the capital stock of its subsidiaries. All the
financing arrangements for the ECCA acquisition, which are
without recourse to the Company, have been completed.
The Company does not anticipate any immediate funding
requirements for the ECCA operations and expects reduced working
capital requirements after completion of the ECCA acquisition as
a result of a then integrated distribution network and
streamlined supply chain. It is expected that the Group's cash
generating capability will be strengthened after the acquisition
with ECCA, it having produced a total of US$57 million (HK$445
million) in free cash flow in the three fiscal years ended 31
December, 2003.

CHANGE OF AUDITORS AND DELAY IN PUBLICATION OF ANNUAL RESULTS

Further to the Company's announcement of 28 April, 2005, the
Board anticipates that the publication of the Group's 2004
annual results will be delayed until the end of June, 2005. This
delay constitutes a breach of Rules 13.46(2) (a) and 13.49(1) of
Rules Governing the Listing of Securities on The Stock Exchange
of Hong Kong Limited (the Listing Rules). The Stock Exchange of
Hong Kong Limited reserves the right to take appropriate action
against the Company and, or, its directors in respect of such
breach. However, such delay did not result in a breach of the
bye-laws of the Company or the applicable laws of Bermuda.

The Company will set up an independent team with experience in
reviewing financial reporting and compliance systems, procedures
and controls to review the internal control systems of the
Group.

According to the bye-laws of the Company, if the office of the
auditor of the Company becomes vacant by resignation, the Board
shall as soon as practicable convene a special general meeting
to fill the vacancy. The Board has resolved to propose to the
shareholders of the Company the appointment of CCIF CPA Limited
(CCIF) as the new auditors of the Company to fill the vacancy
arising from Messrs. Deloitte Touche Tohmatsu's resignation
until the conclusion of the next annual general meeting of the
Company. A notice of special general meeting with an
accompanying circular will be diespatched to the shareholders of
the Company on June 1, 2005.

BOARD CHANGES

The Board also announces that Mr. Ma Hon Kin, Dennis and Mr.
Joseph A. Barrett have resigned as executive directors of the
Company with effect from May 13, 2005. The resignation of Mr. Ma
was part of the Company's plan to reduce the proportion of
family members on the Board, and in due course, additional
independent non-executive directors are expected to be
appointed. Mr. Barrett resigned due to his plans to return to
the United States. Mr. Barrett had on 16 May, 2005 entered with
the Company into a consultancy agreement under which
Mr. Barrett agreed to provide consultancy services to the Group.
Save for the aforesaid, the Board is not aware of any matters
relating to the resignation of the two executive directors that
need to be brought to the attention of the shareholders of the
Company. Mr. Ma and Mr. Barrett have confirmed that none of them
presently have any disagreement with other members of the Board
in relation to matters concerning the Group.

GENERAL

Anglo Chinese has been appointed to advise the Company in
negotiating with its Bank Creditors and on a recapitalization
proposal which may involve raising new capital by way of a
rights issue, other issue of securities, asset sales or the
introduction of a new strategic investor. It is not presently
expected that the introduction of a new strategic investor, if
it happens, will result in a change of control of the Company
within the meaning of the Hong Kong Codes on Takeovers and
Mergers.

The Company noted that there are recent newspaper articles
reporting the Company's intention to place its shares through
Sun Hung Kai Securities Limited. The Company is not in
discussion with any brokerage firms, securities firms or any
other parties with regard to the placing of its shares. The
Board has confirmed that the contents of such articles are not
true and do not have any basis or substance.

The Board also confirms that there are no negotiations or
agreements relating to intended acquisitions or realizations,
which are discloseable under Rule 13.23 of the Listing Rules.
Save as disclosed in this announcement the Board is not aware of
any other matter discloseable under the general obligation under
Rule 13.09 of the Listing Rules, which is or may be of a price-
sensitive nature.

Made by the order of the Board, the directors of which
individually and jointly accept responsibility for the accuracy
of this statement.

Trading in the Company's shares has been suspended at the
request of the Company with effect from 9:30 a.m. on 18 April,
2005 and will continue to be suspended until the publication of
the Company's 2004 annual results and the concerns of the Stock
Exchange arising from the delay in the publication of annual
results have been satisfactorily addressed.

STAR AIR: Halts Ops Due to High Fuel Costs, Competition
-------------------------------------------------------
Indonesian budget airline Star Air stopped operations this week
amid fierce competition and rising fuel costs, Agence France
Presse reports.

According to Star Air official Ade, the airline halted all its
operations indefinitely, as of June 1, 2005, with the last
flight from Surabaya, Java, which landed in Sukarno-Hatta on May
31. Airline spokesperson Nurwulan Handayani said that all the
557 employees of Star Air would be temporarily suspended until
the Company could find a buyer.

The Media Indonesian newspaper reported Star Air President Eddy
Saddily as saying that the rising price of aviation fuel and
monthly losses of up to IDR1 billion put the airline out of
business. Aviation fuel expenses represented 53% of the
airline's operational costs.

Star Air operated domestic routes, with one international route
from Jakarta to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The airline has six
Boeing 737-200 and two MD-82 aircraft.

CITIBANK JAPAN: Citigroup Units in Trouble Over Taxes
-----------------------------------------------------
Two Japanese units of U.S. giant Citigroup Inc. were reprimanded
by the Tokyo Regional Taxation Bureau for failing to declare
about JPY8.4 billion in taxable income in the four years to
March 2004, The Asahi Shimbun reports.

The tax agency has ordered Citibank Japan and Cititrust and
Banking Corporation to pay an estimated JPY2.7 billion in back
taxes and penalties. The two units have already filed revised
tax reports. The income was gained mainly from acts that
violated the Banking Law.

In September 2004, the Financial Services Agency (FSA) revoked
its permission for Citibank Japan to operate its four offices in
Japan for repeated violations of the Banking Law, including the
promotion of Japanese investments in overseas real estate
without registration and opening shady accounts allegedly used
for money laundering.

The FSA in April this year has ordered the two firms not to
engage in any new trust business because of illegal operations
and its evasion of an agency inspection since May 2.

years on the back of a spin-off of its cosmetics division,
despite a 40 percent fall in sales, according to the Yomiuri
Shimbun.

The Company, which is undergoing rehabilitation, will be
delisted from the Tokyo Stock Exchange and Osaka Securities
Exchange on June 13 for its accounting fraud that had continued
for the five years through March 2004.

The sharp drop in sales was largely a result of restructuring
efforts, including the spin-off of its cosmetic business and the
transfer or liquidation of 22 businesses, including a cup noodle
business.

But there is a sign of recovery with Kanebo now concentrating on
its three core businesses--daily commodities, pharmaceuticals
and food.

SANYO ELECTRIC: S&P Affirms 'BBB' Rating
----------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services has affirmed its 'BBB' long-
term credit rating on Sanyo Electric Co. Ltd. following an
examination of the company's revisions to its financial
statements for fiscal 2004 (ended March 31, 2005). The outlook
on the long-term rating remains negative.

"Although Sanyo Electric is expected to record a net loss in
fiscal 2005 for the second consecutive year, and its capital
structure is likely to continue to deteriorate, Standard &
Poor's assumes that the profitability of its core businesses
will improve, backed by restructuring measures," said Standard &
Poor's credit analyst Fusako Nagao.

"Furthermore, Sanyo Electric is not expected to increase its
debt further, given the company's policy to generate additional
cash flow through other financing measures, such as asset
sales," Ms. Nagao added.

On May 24, 2005, Sanyo Electric revised its financial results
for fiscal 2004, released April 2005, to reflect additional
reductions in deferred tax assets in response to advice from the
company's auditor. As a result, the company's net loss increased
to JPY171.5 billion from JPY137.1 billion. Standard & Poor's
estimates that the company's ratio of net debt to capital
(excluding Sanyo Electric's financial subsidiary) stands at
about 63%, which is substantially high for a 'BBB' rating. The
ratio is likely to rise further in fiscal 2005 (ending March 31,
2006), since the company expects an erosion of capital from the
expected JPY92 billion net loss, which will partly stem from
business restructuring costs.

Nevertheless, Standard & Poor's expects the company to be able
to avoid further deterioration of its debt-servicing ability
through internal cash flows, as profitability from its core
businesses is expected to recover as a result of the
restructuring. In addition, the company's policy to generate
positive free cash flows by taking on various financing
measures, including sales of assets and a reduction of
inventory, to avoid an increase in debt, should also support its
debt servicing ability.

However, the rating on the company could be lowered if it fails
to recover profitability as planned in fiscal 2005 and its
capital structure deteriorates more than expected.


* Recovery Continues At Japan's Banks
-------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings, the international rating agency, said that
Japan's banking sector has drawn a line under the asset quality
problems it has suffered in recent years. Although two of
Japan's major banks reported net losses for the fiscal year
ending March 2005 (FYE05), according to a report released today,
Fitch said it expects all seven of the major domestic banking
groups to return to the black in the current year (FYE06).

Moreover, Fitch thinks that the major banks may report aggregate
net profits of between JPY1.5 trillion to JPY2.0trn in FYE06,
which would be their best performance since 1989 when their loan
books were about 40% larger than they are now, domestic stock
prices were three times higher, Japan's real estate prices were
booming and the bubble economy was in full swing.

In the comment, Fitch notes the dramatic improvement in asset
quality in the sector. The ratio of net non-performing loans
("NPL") to the banks' aggregate equity was just 15% in FYE05
down substantially from 95% in FYE02. This improvement in asset
quality is the result of increasingly strict regulatory
inspections, the banks' own aggressive NPL disposals in recent
years and substantially higher levels of loan loss reserves.

Fitch welcomes all of these developments. Moreover, the sector's
reliance on deferred tax assets (DTA) to bolster capital ratios
is declining rapidly. The major challenge now facing the sector
is how to raise earnings as loan books continue to shrink and
margins remain thin. Even if the sector reports record net
profitability of JPY1.5 trillion-JPY2.0 trillion in FYE06, it
would represent a return on total assets of about 0.3%-0.4%,
which is only around one-third the level of comparable
diversified major banking groups in other developed markets. As
a result, all of Japan's major banks are adopting strategies to
boost their retail operations, with particular focus on
unsecured consumer and small-business lending, residential
mortgages and fee and commission income.

The amount of public Tier 1 capital outstanding at the major
banks is JPY5.3trn. Fitch expects most of the banks that have
not already done so to repay the government within two to three
years. This will help to improve further the quality if not
quantity of the sector's regulatory capital. With growing
confidence, repaired balance sheets and no longer an obligation
to repay the Japanese taxpayer, Fitch believes the major banks
could start searching at home and overseas for bolt-on
acquisitions as a relatively easy way to help solve the major
question they all now face: how are they going to improve their
earnings?

HYNIX SEMICONDUCTOR: To Raise KRW2.4 Bln in Bond Sale, Loans
------------------------------------------------------------
Hynix Semiconductor Inc. wants to raise KRW2.4 billion through a
bond sale and syndicated loans, reports Asia Pulse.

The South Korean chipmaker would use the proceeds from the sale
and the loan to repay its maturing debts and fund operations.

The Company's board of directors approved the financial scheme,
and the firm plans to raise KRW1 trillion in an international
bond sale, while the rest would be borrowed from domestic
creditors.

The bonds have a 12-year maturity date, and are set to be listed
on the Singapore Stock Exchange, according to the Company. The
bond issue's terms may change in accordance with varying market
conditions, and subscription and settlement for the bonds is
scheduled for next month.
  
The Company was granted a KRW1.5 trillion debt-refinancing
package by creditors last April 21 in order to graduate from a
creditor-led debt workout program 20 months ahead of schedule.

Creditors, who own 81% stake in Hynix, are planning to sell 30%
stake in the Company, with the remaining 51% to be sold at the
end of 2007.

three subsidiaries are: Bullion Mining & Developments Sdn Berhad
(BMD), Elderberry Sdn Berhad (ESB) and Synergy Tanker Sdn Berhad
(STSB).

Bullion Mining & Developments Sdn Berhad, which was incorporated
in 1971, dealt with property development and owned several
properties. The firm disposed all of its properties to another

worth MYR9.1 million.

Elderberry Sdn Berhad was incorporated in 1992, and operated a

currently inactive. ESB posted a net loss of MYR123,000 as of
May 31, 2004, and has MYR1.3 million in shareholder funds.

Synergy Tanker Sdn Berhad was incorporated in 1997, and operated
the ship MT Zainab, which was disposed of in May 2000; STSB is
an investment holding company at present.

As of May 31, 2004, STSB recored a net loss of MYR318,000, with
a capital deficiency of MYR1 million.
Since there are no plans to revive the three subsidiaries, the
Company has decided to liquidate all three units; the
liquidation will not affect the Company's net tangible assets,
profits and share capital in any way.

three years.

The Company is availing of all legal remedies to ensure that
operations resume at the soonest possible time.

LIFETIME PLANS: SEC May Reconsider Revocation Order
---------------------------------------------------
A corporate watchdog may reconsider its an earlier order to
cancel the Certificate of Registration of pre-need provider
Lifetime Plans Inc., The Manila Bulletin reveals.

The Securities and Exchange Commission has directed its General
Counsel to review the motion for reconsideration filed Friday
last week by Lifetime Plans and recommend to the agency the
proper course of action to take. The SEC will decide on the
motion in due course.

Lifetime was forced to shut its doors and transfer its plan
holders back to ailing sister firm, Pacific Plans, after SEC
decided to cancel its registration certificate for failure to
comply with requirements.

Despite the revocation order, the SEC has mandated the pre-need
firm to continue paying planholders' claims from its trust fund.
It also asked agents to advise their clients to premiums as
scheduled to avoid the lapse of their policies as the company
reverts back to Pacific Plans, Inc., the company from which it
was spun off.


MANILA ELECTRIC: Revises Refund Scheme for Corporate Clients
-------------------------------------------------------------
Manila Electric Company (Meralco) has decided against the
issuance of refund notes, which it earlier proposed, says The
Philippine Daily Inquirer.

As a result, the cash-strapped utility firm said it would refund
commercial and industrial clients by either issuing them with
post-dated checks or by crediting the refundable amount to their
future bills.

Meralco, which has already filed amendments to its proposed
refund procedures, decided to discard refund notes, citing high
costs.

The utility firm was ordered by the Supreme Court to pay back a
total of Php30 billion to customers for overbillings dating back
to 1994. Around Php18.67 billion would be paid to commercial and
industrial clients.

Under its previous proposal, smaller commercial and industrial
clients, or those with contracted demand lower than 40
kilowatts, were supposed to get their refunds through credit-to-
future bills. It also planned to issue refund notes to bigger
clients.

In the amended proposal, customers under both categories will
have the option of getting their reimbursements through post-
dated checks. Those who would not opt for post-dated checks will
still avail of the fixed credit-to-future-bills with an added
option of receiving their refunds in cash on other months
following the first month of refund implementation.

MAYNILAD WATER: Court OKs Rehabilitation Plan
---------------------------------------------
The rehabilitation plan of ailing water concessionaire Maynilad
Services Inc. has been approved by the lower court, according to
Business World.

Court-appointed receiver Rosario S. Bernaldo confirmed that the
Quezon City Regional Trial Court has finally given the go-ahead
for Maynilad's debt and capital restructuring, clearing the way
for an immediate takeover by a private investor.

Under the rehabilitation plan, Maynilad's majority shareholder,
listed investment holding group Benpres Holdings Inc. (BPC.PH),
will divest all its shares. Shares of Benpres' French partner,
Ondeo Philippines, formerly known as Suez Lyonnais des Eaux,
will be reduced to 13 percent.

State agency Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System will
hold the shares for eventual sale to a private investor.

Maynilad's rehabilitation plan was accepted by its foreign and
local creditors, except for state-owned Development Bank of the
Philippines (DBP), which was awaiting the go-ahead from its
board of directors.

The creditors agreed that the plan would significantly improve
the financial and operational viability of Maynilad, which

PACIFIC PLANS: Planholders Fight for Tuition Assistance
-------------------------------------------------------
Planholders of struggling Pacific Plans Inc. have pleaded with
the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to order the pre-
need provider to resume its payment of tuition claims
immediately, reports The Philippine Star.

The Coordinating Alliance for Reform and Empowerment in the Pre-
need Industry (CARE) and the Alyansang Reporma at Ugnayang
Galing at Aruga ((ARUGA), which represent Pacific Plans
planholders, said the legal squabble between Pacific Plans and
the SEC has left enrolment money of planholders hanging in
uncertainty.

The two groups said SEC's decision to revoke the certificate of
incorporation of Pacific Plans' subsidiary Lifetime Plans Inc.
has resulted in the suspension of Pacific Plans' tuition
assistance, to the detriment of thousands of the pre-need firm's
planholders.

Both organizations noted that "many planholders are pinning
their hope for such assistance to ensure the enrollment of their
children this coming schoolyear and that such assistance should
cover the whole schoolyear and not merely the first semester
enrollment".

CARE and ARUGA said the SEC should ensure that the greatest
number of beneficiaries would benefit from such assistance by
making it, for the time being, equal in amount to all
planholders regardless of the original terms of their contract.

Prior to the SEC order, Pacific Plans had distributed Php591
million in cash to its planholders, Php250 million of which came
from former ambassador Alfonso Yuchengco.

Pacific Plans said it would provide a liquidity window of
another Php300 million to its traditional planholders should the
court approve its rehabilitation plan.

ACCORD CUSTOMER: Names Phillip Eng Chairman
-------------------------------------------
Accord Customer Care Solutions Limited (ACCS) advised the
Singapore Stock Exchange (SGX) that it has appointed Mr. Philip
Eng as Chairman and Non-Executive Director with effect June 1,
2005.

Mr. Eng, 58, is the Deputy Chairman of MCL Land and former Group
Managing Director of Jardine Cycle & Carriage. He takes over
from Mr. Henry Tan who will remain as a Non-Executive Director
of the Company.

An accountant by training, Mr. Eng joined Jardine Cycle &
Carriage in 1982 and worked in different capacities before being
appointed Group Managing Director in 1996, taking charge of the
group's businesses throughout the Asia Pacific region. He was
credited with diversifying the group's motor business in
Australia and New Zealand where the group's brands achieved
leadership positions in their respective market segments.

During his tenure, he also expanded the group's property
business to Malaysia. Mr. Eng is perhaps best known for his role
in Jardine Cycle & Carriage's largest investment - in Indonesian
conglomerate and largest independent automotive group in South
East Asia, PT Astra International Tbk.

Mr. Eng retired from Jardine Cycle & Carriage at the end of
February this year. Apart from his directorship at MCL Land, he
is also a director of MTQ Corporation, Asia General Holdings and
the Chinese Development Assistance Council. Other recent
appointments include being Commissioner of PT Bank Danamon
Indonesia, Director of City Gas Pte Ltd and Singapore Computer
Systems. He has been Singapore's High Commissioner to the
Federal Republic of Nigeria, resident in Singapore, since 2000.

"We are happy that Philip Eng has agreed to come on board and
provide leadership during this difficult period for ACCS. We can
benefit much by tapping on his extensive experience and
knowledge in growing leading brands in the region," said Mr. CC
Tong, ACCS' newly appointed Chief Executive Officer.

"The new team taking ACCS forward is a complementary blend of
long years of experience in business, consumer electronics,
distribution, finance, service and technology sectors on a
regional basis," he added.

On the tasks ahead, Mr. Tong said: "Recent events and
disclosures have been disruptive and have taken a heavy toll on
management. We are grateful to our staff and customers for their
support during this period.

"One of my top priorities is to instill confidence and re-build
stability in ACCS as soon as possible by working with our
customers, our service providers, our staff and other
stakeholders.

"Despite the circumstances, day-to-day operations have been
running fairly normally.

Our regional network and customer base remain intact. All this
while, we continued to service our customers in the markets that
we have a presence. We intend to improve further in order to
serve them better. "

The Company is re-focusing on its core after-market services and
distribution management solutions businesses, two areas that it
believes it still holds the competitive edge in Asia Pacific and
where opportunities exist for expansion.

RSH LIMITED: Answers SGX Query
------------------------------
RSH Limited issued to the Singapore Stock Exchange (SGX) a reply
to its letter ref ref RMR/IR/JH dated June 1, 2005.

The following is a transcript of SGX's query and the company's
reply.

SGX's Question

You noted on page 3 of the results announcement that property,
plant and equipment decreased from SG$123.8 million to S$35.8
million. In respect of the above:

(i) Please explain the reasons for the significant decrease,
taking into account that the sale of property, plant and
equipment amounted to only SG$1,000 in the cash flow statement
for 4Q FY 2005; and group purchase of property, plant and
equipment remained constant for FY 2005 at SG$15.9 million.

The company's reply

The significant decrease in property, plant and equipment took
place in 1Q and 3Q of FY 2005. In 1Q FY 2005, we disposed
leasehold properties with a total net book value of SG$9.1
million. Freehold land and building with a net book value of
SG$83.8 million was disposed in 3Q FY 2005.

Total sales consideration amounted to SG$64.8 million, of which
SG$12.2 million was receivable in subsequent years and has been
reflected under "other receivables" in the balance sheet as at
March 31, 2005.

The difference, after offsetting the net book values and the
sales consideration, related to the revaluation reserves on
these properties. The movements in these reserves were shown in
the statement of changes in equity.

SGX's Question

(ii) Please explain the reasons for the increase in depreciation
charge from SG$9.67 million to SG$11.30 million, taking into
account the significant decrease of the property, plant and
equipment.

FULL YEAR RESULTS FOR YEAR ENDED 31 MARCH 2005

The company's reply

The Group purchased property, plant and equipment of SG$15.9
million during the financial year in line with the opening of
new retail stores; these assets are depreciated over the period
of the respective leases. Freehold land of SG$68.4 million,
which was not subject to depreciation, was disposed in 3Q FY
2005. As a result, the current year depreciation charge
increased over the previous year despite the significant
decrease in the net book value of property, plant and equipment.

SGX's Question

Please provide the nature of other receivables of SG$58 million.
As this amount is greater than 10% of NAV, please provide
further details of items or transactions where applicable.

The company's reply

The amount of SG$58 million related to total trade and other
receivables. Trade debtors constituted 41% of the amount while
rental deposits paid to landlords contributed 24%.

The remaining balance comprised mainly of the amount due from
associate company.

Please do not hesitate to contact if you require any
clarifications.

Yours faithfully

Group Chief Executive Officer
