AGENIX LIMITED: Forecasts Lower Loss Despite Restructuring
----------------------------------------------------------
Biotechnology Company Agenix Limited forecasts a lower full year
loss for the year ended 30 June 2005 of between AU$12.3 million
and AU$12.8 million, compared to a loss in the prior year of
AU$14.3 million.

This result includes costs of restructuring the business and is
despite increased research and development expenditure resulting
from the continuing success of ThromboView.

Included in this loss is a AU$3 million pre-tax profit for the
year from Agen Biomedical's human and animal health medical
diagnostic businesses.

The full-year result is impacted by:

(1) Net R&D expenditure of AU$6.8 million (including ThromboView
project costs of AU$6.0 million),

(2) Corporate overheads and interest of AU$4.0 million,

(3) A loss of AU$2.5 million from the recently sold Milton
Pharmaceuticals business,

(4) An AU$1.0 million loss from expensed investment in
manufacturing and quality systems and sale of assets at Agen
Biomedical,

(5) Previously disclosed legal expenses of AU$0.3 million from
the settled Synbiotics case, and

(6) Redundancies of AU$0.4 million.

Mr. Don Home, Managing Director of Agenix, commented: "The
result is a mixture of continued success with our ThromboView
program and disappointing performance in the base business.

"This is primarily because the Company decided to invest in
additional infrastructure and operational capacity in
anticipation of increased revenues associated with a second
distributor for the animal health product range in the United
States. As this appointment has not occurred, the Board has
decided that it will reduce overheads and capacity until such
time as this appointment occurs."

Mr. Home also added, "In conjunction with the completion of
certain improvement programs that have been ongoing over the
past two years, approximately 13 staff will be immediately made
redundant which will result in combined savings of in excess of
$2.0 million compared to this year's expenditure."

These savings will mean that the Agenix base business
(encompassing the human and animal health diagnostic businesses
and the corporate office) will be profitable, cash flow positive
and capable of supporting the Company's current and anticipated
commitments, excluding R&D.

Sales for Agen Biomedical for the year ended 30 June 2005 are
forecast to show a 5% decline on last year on a currency
adjusted basis. Sales forecast for the 2005-06 financial year
are expected to show 17% growth based on the scaled-back
capacity. Efforts to expand distribution in both human and
animal health will continue.

Forecast cash and unused bank facilities at 30 June 2005 are
AU$8.6 million. This does not include any proceeds from the sale
of the Milton property. An offer has been accepted to sell this
property for AU$1.85 million, subject to completion of final due
diligence, and settlement is expected in July 2005.

R&D expenditure of AU$6.8 million was fully expensed in line
with the Company's existing accounting policy. This expenditure
primarily related to the advancement of the ThromboView project.

ThromboView has continued to meet critical milestones and the
positive results of the completed trials have led to the Board's
decision to continue to invest in the project to bring
ThromboView to market in the shortest possible time in order to
maximize shareholder value.

The expenditure to date on the ThromboView project has been
AU$19.6M (including forecast to 30 June 2005).

An announcement on ThromboView and the commitment to a
manufacturing contract and the development of a second product
using the ThromboView antibody fragment accompanies this
announcement.

Agenix continues to believe that it will complete a sales,
marketing and distribution agreement by December 2005.
Components of such an agreement would normally be expected to
include an upfront cash milestone payment and support for
clinical trial costs going forward.

Agenix Limited (ASX: AGX; OTC (NASDAQ): AGXLY) is a global
health and biotechnology Company based in Brisbane, Australia.
The Company runs a suite of established businesses in human and
animal health diagnostics, and is focused on growing its world-
leading molecular diagnostic imaging R&D program. Agenix's lead
candidate is its high-technology ThromboView blood clot-imaging
project, which is currently undergoing Phase II human trials in
the United States and Canada. ThromboView uses radiolabelled
antibodies to locate blood clots in the body, and could
revolutionise the US$3 billion global clot diagnostic imaging
market. ThromboView is being developed with the assistance of
the Federal Government through its START scheme. Agenix employs
110 staff and sells its products to more than 50 countries.
ThromboView is a registered trademark of AGEN Biomedical.

BONLAC FOODS: Placed On WatchPos Amid Fonterra Stake Buy Talk
-------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said it has placed its 'B+'
long-term corporate credit and 'B-' subordinated debt ratings on
Bonlac Foods Ltd. on CreditWatch with positive implications
following announcement by Fonterra Co-operative Group Ltd.
(Fonterra; AA-/Stable/A-1+) that it intends to buy the remaining
50% of Bonlac it does not already own.

The acquisition is subject to approval by Bonlac Supply Co.'s
shareholders to sell. Fonterra will offer Bonlac Supply Co.
capital notes in exchange for their shares in Bonlac Foods.
"Resolution of the CreditWatch will follow successful completion
of the proposed acquisition and would probably lead to Bonlac's
rating being equalized with that on Fonterra," said Brenda
Wardlaw, credit analyst, Corporate & Infrastructure Ratings
group.

The 'B+' rating on Bonlac reflects the Company's weak financial
performance, high debt levels, weak liquidity, and narrow focus.
Fonterra's current 50% ownership of Bonlac and the benefits
brought by Fonterra's marketing expertise help soften these
negative factors.

Fonterra acquires and markets all of Bonlac's production, for
export and domestic markets, and provides management services to
Bonlac. These arrangements, together with debt reduction in
recent years and the reduction in Bonlac's hedge exposure have
stabilized Bonlac's financial profile. Bonlac's ability to
generate operating cash flows sufficient to satisfy its
commitments is a critical rating factor, especially given its
weak liquidity and the depletion of retained profits in fiscal
2004.

Standard & Poor's did not factor any explicit credit support
from Fonterra into the rating on Bonlac at the 50% ownership
level.

Bonlac's liquidity position is weak. Although Bonlac has
renegotiated its bank facilities to allow additional liquidity,
the facilities all mature during fiscal 2005. At June 30, 2004,
Bonlac had A$7.6 million in cash and A$70 million in undrawn
bank facilities, with A$95 million debt maturing in fiscal 2005.
A significant challenge for Bonlac is its ability to generate
free cash flows to pay a competitive price for milk, which is
needed to retain suppliers.

Bonlac sought and obtained waivers on specific covenant ratios
for fiscal 2004, due to the impact of restructuring charges.

MEDIBANK PRIVATE: Government Revives Sale Plan
----------------------------------------------
The AU$1-billion-plus sale of Medibank Private Limited is
reportedly back on the Government's agenda following its return
to profitability, according to The Australian Financial Review.

As the Coalition prepares to take control of the Senate, federal
Cabinet has been updated on the second phase of a scoping study
for the sale, which was last commissioned in 2002.

In June 2003, it decided not to proceed because Medibank had
made a AU$175 million loss in 2001-02, market conditions were
weak and the necessary legislation was likely to be opposed by
the Senate.

The Medibank report comes as the Government pushes ahead with
the sale of its remaining stake in Telstra, a telecommunications
Company.

MILLER'S RETAIL: Revamp Leads to One-off Costs
----------------------------------------------
The new Board of Miller's Retail Limited (MRL) announced that,
while the Strategic Review announced in April 2005 is not yet
complete, it has decided to take a number of preliminary actions
to improve the business outlook for MRL, based on initial
findings.

Key initial findings and actions

The Strategic Review has included an appraisal of inventories at
MRL, which operates more than 1,050 stores, with annual sales in
excess of AU$1 billion. The Review has assessed inventory levels
to be excessive and this has constrained buying practices and
prevented the Company from trading at full potential.

The Board has therefore decided to take immediate action to
rationalize Company inventories, with a program of aggressive
sales and stock markdowns, which includes taking up required
stock provisions of up to AU$25 million. This decision, while
negatively impacting profitability this financial year, releases
working capital for the Company moving forward.

The Strategic Review has also included a continuation of the
store optimization program, which measures individual MRL stores
against a minimum rate of return benchmark. Approximately 80
stores out of the 1,050 in the portfolio have been identified as
operating below minimum profitability requirements, primarily
due to poor locations or operating metrics.

The Board has decided to exit or close these under performing
stores, with one-off restructuring costs of up to AU$30 million
expected for these store closures. While negatively impacting
profitability this financial year, this decision also releases
working capital for the Company moving forward.

Due to the uncertain outlook and continued underperformance of
the Discount Variety division, the Board has decided to write
down the remaining carrying value of the Discount Variety
intangible assets to zero, a reduction of AU$31.1 million. This
write down is non-cash and has no impact on operations.

"These immediate actions, while impacting 2005 profitability as
a result of store closure and inventory provisions, help put MRL
on a solid platform for growth," newly appointed Chairman of
MRL, Mr. Geoff Levy, said.

"These are important steps to ensure MRL can focus on the right
growth imperatives for 2006 and be able to do so with improved
working capital conditions," Mr. Levy said.

"As important initiatives take shape from our continuing
Strategic Review, we will update the market from time to time,"
Mr. Levy said.

As a result of the above, MRL now expects operating earnings
before interest, tax, depreciation, and amortization (EBITDA)
for 2005 to be between AU$48 million and AU$53 million. However,
these 2005 earnings will be adversely impacted by the one-off
provisions of up to AU$55 million to be made in relation to
inventory and store closures as referred to above.

CEO of MRL Mr. Gary Perlstein said, "Whilst these initiatives
leave the Company with negative earnings this financial year,
the Company will have an improved working capital position, will
be in a sound position to pay future dividends and create a
platform for growth".

MULTIPLEX: Wembley Hangs Over Olympic Votes
-------------------------------------------
Organizers of the 2012 Olympic Games has assured it will pursue
its bid to host the Olympics despite delays by Multiplex in
completing the new Wembley Stadium in London, according to the
Sydney Morning Herald.

London's bid for the 2012 Olympics is now being evaluated after
Multiplex announced it will not be able to complete the Wembley
project as scheduled for December this year.

While the new Wembley will be long completed by 2012 and able to
host the Olympic football final, the publicity about the
construction delays came at an awkward time for the London bid
team, with the vote on the host city for the 2012 games to be
made next month.

On July 6 the International Olympic Committee will vote upon
rival 2012 bids by London, Paris, Madrid, New York City and
Moscow.

Multiplex earlier revealed the delays will mean it will book an
AU$109-million loss on the project and its shares have dipped
ever since.

MULTIPLEX: Mulls Sale of Global Switch
--------------------------------------
Troubled construction giant Multiplex will dispose of its losing
U.K. data company Global Switch, according to Financial Times.

Although the sale will be part of efforts to streamline its
operations, Multiplex insisted there will be no major sell-off
of its U.K. portfolio.

Multiplex Chief Executive Andrew Roberts confirmed the business
was one of the U.K. assets it was planning to sell. Others are
understood to be a GBP100 million shopping center in Barnsley
and a GBP50 million office block in Glasgow. The group is likely
to wait for Global Switch to make its first profit, probably
this year, and sell it soon afterward

Multiplex and its partners, the billionaire Reuben brothers, own
75 percent of the loss-making business, which offers back-up
services known as "Internet hotels" for large companies'
computer systems. Morley Fund Management owns the remainder.

Mr. Roberts stressed the firm will keep its core assets in the
U.K. such as retail properties in Cardiff, Burnley, High Wycombe
and Harlow.


NQ RENTALS: Collapse Leaves AU$11-Mn Debt
-----------------------------------------
The collapse of campervan manufacturer NQ Australia Rentals has
left an AU$11 million trail of creditors and all are expected to
incur significant losses, The Courier Mail relates.

A first creditor's report showed that the firm's major creditor
ANZ Bank is owed AU$7 million. Other secured creditors include
Bank of Queensland (owed AU$1.39 million), Toyota Financial
Services (owed AU$1.37 million) and Westpac Bank (owed
AU$42,000).

The Australian Taxation Office has also made a claim for AU$1.4
million and a large number of unsecured clients have made claims
for campervan hire bonds not being refunded or being taken
without their authority.

Preliminary inquiries by liquidator KPMG Cairns have revealed
employee entitlements are about AU$117,000, excluding AU$21,000
owed to the Company's sole director, Lawrence Neil Chapman.

NQ Rentals' receiver and manager Andrew Fielding of PPB
Chartered Accountants hinted on the possibility the vehicles
would be put to auction, citing difficulty in finding a buyer
for the business.

The first creditors' meeting of NQ Rentals will be held in
Cairns on July 1 from 1pm and creditors have been invited to
contact the liquidator KPMG by e-mail at ajonsson@kpmg.com.au
for further information.

OROTON: Ends Exclusive Talks with Catalyst
------------------------------------------
Oroton Group Limited advised that it has ended exclusive
discussions with Catalyst Investment Managers Pty Limited. As
announced to the market on April 27 and May 2, 2005, these
discussions concerned a potential privatization of Oroton Group.

Oroton Group received a conditional proposal from Catalyst but
after careful deliberation the Non-Interested Directors of
Oroton Group considered that on balance it would not be
acceptable to the majority of the Company's shareholders. The
proposal from Catalyst would be unlikely to achieve the
necessary levels of shareholder acceptance to result in a
successful transaction. The Company will bear its own
transaction costs of approximately AU$1 million.

Chairman of the Non-Interested Directors Mr. Will Vicars stated
"Given the current status of the Company, the privatization as
proposed by Catalyst does not adequately compensate
shareholders. As a result, the Non-Interested Directors agreed
to end discussions; the Board and management are continuing to
focus their attention on the ongoing restructuring of the
business."

Given recent trading performance, Oroton Group is considering
its earnings guidance in relation to FY2005 and will make an
announcement on this matter separately.

PEGASUS LEVERAGED: Ex-director Pleads Guilty to AU$2.1-Mln Fraud
----------------------------------------------------------------
Mr. Craig John McKim, of Labrador, Queensland, on Friday pleaded
guilty in the Sydney District Court to seven charges under the
Crimes Act 1900, following an investigation by the Australian
Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC).

Mr. McKim, who is a former director of a Sydney financial
services business, Pegasus Leveraged Options Group Pty Ltd
(Pegasus), pleaded guilty to three counts of fraudulently taking
funds totaling $2,117,963 for his own use.

ASIC had alleged that the funds taken by Mr. McKim were
withdrawn from an account that Pegasus held with the National
Australia Bank, which Mr. McKim allegedly deposited into three
gaming accounts.

Mr. McKim also pleaded guilty to four counts of making or using
false documents, or copies of false documents as part of the
promotion of a managed investment scheme, to induce investors in
the scheme to accept the instruments as genuine. The false
documents included letters purporting to be from a
representative of a financial institution.

The offences occurred during the period 25 July 2000 to 1 March
2001.

The matter will return to court on 26 August 2005 for
sentencing.

A number of bail conditions, which were set by the Court on 20
May 2005 will continue. These include that Mr. McKim not
approach points of international departure, reside at his
current residential address, report each Monday to the Officer
in Charge of the Southport Watchhouse, Queensland and enter into
an agreement, without security, to forfeit the sum of $50,000,
if he fails to comply with his bail undertaking.

The Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions is prosecuting
the matter.

Background

Pegasus was an unlicensed financial services business, based in
Crows Nest, NSW.

ASIC has previously taken civil action against Mr. McKim and
Pegasus in relation to the management of an unregistered managed
investment scheme, and the offer of securities without a
securities dealers license. On 24 April 2002, ASIC obtained
orders for the winding up of both Pegasus and the scheme.

In addition, the NSW Supreme Court also banned Mr. McKim from
being involved in the management of a Company for 30 years.

Mr. McKim and Pegasus were found to be operating an unregistered
managed investment scheme, to have engaged in misleading or
deceptive conduct and to have made misleading statements in
order to entice investors into the scheme.

SANTOS LIMITED: S&P Says Ratings Unhurt By Accounting Changes
-------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said there would be no change
to Santos Ltd.'s 'BBB+/Stable/A-2' ratings and outlook following
the announcement of changes to Santos' financial accounts, with
the Company's recent adoption of Australian International
Financial Reporting Standards (AIFRS).

The adoption of AIFRS by Santos will not affect the Company's
reported cash flows, strategies, operations, or its ability to
meet financial covenants. Therefore, Santos' creditworthiness is
unaffected.

Santos' adoption of AIFRS will have some noncash effects on its
asset values, taxation, and restoration treatment. Another
significant accounting change relates to the adoption of a
"successful-efforts" method, which accounts for exploration and
evaluation expenditure from the "full-cost" method. This will
bring Santos in line with its peers and will not affect cash.

The ratings on Santos reflect its reliable gas cash flows and
increasing asset diversity. Gas revenues make up about 50% of
cash flows, while the more volatile crude oil, condensate, and
LPG revenues form the balance. Offsetting the certainty of the
existing contracted-gas revenues are volatile oil prices, the
competitive pricing of new gas contracts, the relatively poor
historic reserve-replacement record, and significant changes to
the Company's asset-acquisition profile.

Santos' moderate financial profile supports its ratings.

WMC RESOURCES: Staff Face Cuts as BHP Moves In
----------------------------------------------
The Board of WMC Resources Ltd (WMC) has appointed BHP Billiton
Executive Director Mike Salamon as WMC Chairman following the
retirement of Tommie Bergman.

As well as Mr Bergman, six other WMC directors, including CEO
Andrew Michelmore, have retired from the WMC Board and been
replaced by three new directors, nominated by majority
shareholder BHP Billiton. Mr Michelmore has also resigned from
his role as CEO.

Mr Salamon said that BHP Billiton's Chris Campbell had been
appointed CEO on an interim basis. BHP Billiton's VP Business
Performance Manager, Brendan Rudd, has been appointed interim
CFO.

The WMC directors who have retired are:
Tommie Bergman
Professor Adrienne Clarke AC;
Peter Knight;
Graeme McGregor;
Ian Webber;
Andrew Michelmore; and
Alan Dundas.

David Meikeljohn and John Pizzey will continue to serve on the
WMC board and have been joined by:

BHP Billiton Executive Director Mike Salamon;
BHP Billiton Chief Financial Officer Chris Lynch; and
Interim WMC CEO Chris Campbell.

Retiring Chairman Tommie Bergman said that given BHP Billiton
was now the majority shareholder it was appropriate for its
interests to be represented on the Board. He thanked all WMC's
retiring directors, as well as WMC's senior management, for
their contribution to the Company and for their support and
assistance during the process of BHP Billiton's bid for WMC.

"Andrew and his team have done a great job in ensuring that
WMC's operations continued to perform well during the inevitably
difficult offer period and have given tremendous support in
ensuring a smooth transition for WMC to BHP Billiton control,"
Mr. Bergman said.

Incoming Chairman Mike Salamon said that BHP Billiton would
continue to pursue complete ownership of WMC. The $7.85 cash per
share offer has been extended to 17 June.

"WMC's board believes that full ownership by BHP Billiton is in
the best interest of WMC shareholders and continues to recommend
that shareholders accept BHP Billiton's offer as soon as
possible," he said.

BANK OF CHINA: Aims to Sell 10% Shares to Foreign Investors
-----------------------------------------------------------
The Bank of China (BOC) is planning to sell more than 10 percent
of its shares to a number of foreign investors, The Standard
reports, citing BOC President Li Lihui.

The bank is in talks with several strategic investors prior to a
public listing of its shares, which Mr. Li said could happen
late this year or early in 2006. No decision had been taken on
where the shares would be listed.

BOC received a US$22.5 billion (HK$175.5 billion) cash injection
from the state in late 2003 to help bolster its balance sheet
and make it more attractive to foreign investors. A Chinese bank
now can sell a maximum 25 percent to foreign investors.

BANK OF COMMUNICATIONS: First to Float Shares
---------------------------------------------
The Bank of Communications (BoCom) will be the first to test the
Chinese bank IPOs (initial public offerings) late this month,
China Daily reports.

The bank plans to issue 5.856 billion H shares for a price range
of HK$1.95-2.55 (25 US cents -33 US cents) to raise HK$14.9
billion (US$1.91 billion), which is expected to begin trading on
June 23, Bloomberg yesterday quoted an IPO document of the
Shanghai-based bank as saying.

KGI Asia Associate Director Ben Kwong projected the offering
price will be set at the mid range of HK$2.2 (28 US cents) to
HK$2.3 (29 US cents). BoCom is expected to fix the price on June
18, according to the report.

As a result of the bank's increasing efforts to get rid of bad
assets, BoCom's ratio of non-performing loans reduced to 2.91
percent at the end of 2004.

KONG WAH: Proposes New Liquidator Appointment
---------------------------------------------
Notice is hereby given that Mr. Fan Wai Kuen (the Retiring
Liquidators) wishes to resign as a joint and several liquidator
of Kong Wah Holdings Limited.

It is proposed that Mr. Cosimo Borrelli be appointed as the
replacement joint and several liquidator of each of the Company
(the Replacement Liquidators) in his place. The resignation of a
liquidator ordinarily requires the holding of separate meetings
of creditors and contributories to accept the resignation and to
appoint replacement liquidators.

The Retiring Liquidator is of the view that, in the
circumstances, the holding of separate meetings of creditors and
contributories would be inappropriate and incur additional
costs. An application has been made by the Liquidators to the
High Court of Hong Kong to dispense with requirement for holding
the said meetings and the High Court of Hong Kong has made an
Order dated 1 June 2005 that Mr. Fan be removed from his office
as joint and several liquidator of the Companies pursuant to
Section 196(1) of the Companies Ordinance and that Mr. Borrelli
be appointed in his place as joint and several liquidator of the
Companies, with such removal and appointment to take effect 21
days after publication of this advertisement in this newspaper
if no objection is raised by any creditor or contributory in
accordance with the procedure described below.

The Order dated June 1, 2005 may be varied or discharged upon
the application of any creditor or contributory by way of
summons setting out the grounds for the application and
supported by affidavit verifying the said grounds. Any such
application must be made to the Court and served on Johnson

BANK PERMATA: Moody's Upgrades Rating to E+
-------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has raised Bank Permata's (Permata)
bank financial strength rating (BFSR) to E+ from E. The revised
rating carries a positive outlook.

The higher BFSR considers Permata's much improved, albeit still
weak financial fundamentals since the 1997 Asian financial
crisis. In particular, the bank's economic solvency has turned
positive and is positioned at the high end of the E rating
range.

Moreover, the ratings agency expects upward pressure on the BFSR
to continue. Moody's believes that Bank Permata faces brighter
prospects under the ownership of its new shareholder and expect
its franchise and financial fundamentals to become significantly
enhanced. Given the reputation of its shareholder consortium,
Standard Chartered Bank (rated A2) and Astra International, any
support -- financial and technical -- should be strong.

In its plans for the bank, the consortium aims to align Permata
with Standard Chartered Bank's standards, especially in risk
management. As for strategy, the consortium will maintain
Permata's focus on the consumer and small and medium enterprise
segments. However, more consumer products will be introduced
into its distribution channel. Other areas that will be
developed include treasury operations, Syariah banking and the
payment network.

Finally, the backing of a financially strong and reputable
consortium provides greater comfort of available support.
However, due to Permata's size as Indonesia's seventh largest
bank, it may also be considered as having relatively lower
systemic importance and hence weaker government support.

Bank Permata was formed in September 2002 from the amalgamation
of four banks -- Bank Universal, Bank Patriot, Bank Prima
Express and Bank Artamedia -- into Bank Bali. Pre-crisis, Bank
Bali was one of the strongest banks in Indonesia. It had
profitable niches in trade finance, middle-market lending and
retail banking. It was taken over by the Indonesian Bank
Restructuring Agency during the financial crisis in 1999.

In October 2004, a consortium -- comprising Standard Chartered
Bank and Indonesian car manufacturer Astra International --
acquired 51% of Permata from PT Perusahaan Pengelola Aset (PPA).
As of April 2005, this stake had increased to 63.11%. Standard
Chartered Bank and Astra International each hold equal stakes in
the consortium. PPA still holds 26.17% of Permata.

The combined entity is currently the seventh largest bank in the
country with a 3% share of system deposits.

The following rating was raised:

Bank financial strength to E+ from E. The outlook is positive.

The following ratings were unaffected:

Long-term/short-term deposit ratings of B3/Not-Prime. The long-
term rating continues to carry a positive outlook.

PERUSAHAAN LISTRIK: Seeks to Hike Power Rates by 12%
----------------------------------------------------
State-owned power firm PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN) has
asked the government to approve a planned 12% average increase
in power rates in order to offset higher fuel costs, reports the
Jakarta Post.

According to PLN Finance Director Parno Isworo, the Company is
suffering financially due to its fuel expenses, the prices of
which were increased by 29% by the government (Fuel expenses
account for 60% of PLN's total expenses).

The Company seeks to raise its rates from IDR588 per kilowatt-
hour to IDR659 per kilowatt-hour. The last time the rates were
increased was in 2003, to replace the government's cut of fuel
subsidies.

Mr. Isworo further added that the Company had to increase its
rates if it were expected to reap a profit this year, in order
to turn the Company around, after posting IDR2.02 trillion in
net losses last year.

If the government approves the power rate increase, it would
result in increased revenue of IDR75 billion, which would mean
the Company would enjoy IDR486 billion in net profit for 2006.
With current power rates, the Company stands to earn IDR62
trillion in revenues.

The Company plans to phase out its diesel-powered generators,
and shift to using natural gas, which is cheaper. But this would
also take some time, as gas-fired power plants are more
expensive to build. Operating gas-fired power plants cost lesser
than diesel-powered plants.

The Company also announced that it will continue to rotate
blackouts until June 9, because of reduced power supply.

TOTAL E&P: Supreme Court Throws Out Bankruptcy Petition
-------------------------------------------------------
The Supreme Court of Indonesia upheld a local court ruling that
rejected a bankruptcy petition on PT Total E&P Indonesie by two
former contractors, AFX News Limited reports.

According to Bisnis Indonesia, the Supreme Court's ruling was
recently issued, and Company lawyer Todung Mulya Lubis said he
has yet to confirm the verdict, as he himself has not been
notified officially of such.

This is the final phase in a bankruptcy suit filed last March by
contractors PT Sanggar Kaltim Jaya and PT Istana Karang Laut,
claiming that the Company failed to settle a IDR68.5 billion
payment for work carried out in a gas field in Tunu, East
Kalimantan. The claim was based on an audit competed by
Indonesia's Financial and Development Supervising Agency (BPKP).
The Central Jakarta Commercial Court ruled in favor of the
Company.

Total E&P Indonesie is a unit of French oil firm Total S.A.,
with investments totaling IDR1143.6 trillion.

HITACHI LIMITED: Develops Through-Hole Electrode Technology
-----------------------------------------------------------
Hitachi Limited and Renesas Technology Corp. announced a new-
stacked chip technology that uses a through-hole interconnection
method to enable chips to bond at room temperature.

The new technology eliminates the need for wire bonding and
reduces package thickness by more than 60% for the most advanced
SiP (System in Package) products. The method offers a new
packaging technology option for developing 3D-stacked SiP
products.

With this new packaging technique, LSI chips that are between 30
and 50 m thick are fashioned with through-hole electrodes
between the top and bottom sides and gold stud bumps. It then
allows the bumps and through-hole electrodes to connect by
applying a compressive force at room temperature.

Details of this new technology will be presented at Electronic
Components and Technology Conference 2005 (ECTC 2005) being held
in Lake Buena Vista, Florida, U.S.A. from May 31, 2005.

Using this technology, the package thickness of a two-layer SiP
is reduced by 60% or more, from the current 1.25 mm to 0.5 mm or
less. It also enables a package thickness of 1 mm or less to be
achieved when stacking 10 LSI chip layers. In addition, chip-to-
chip interconnection is performed at room temperature to
simplify the manufacturing process.

The chip-stacking technology has several advantages over current
stacking methods. Today most SiP products achieve electrical
interconnection between chips using wire bonding, but the need
to provide wire space limits package thickness. Also, since
chip-to-chip connections are made via package substrate wiring,
the number of package substrate layers increases, leading to
higher substrate costs. In addition, the longer wiring required
for connecting stacked chips causes lower performance. The new
technology eliminates these issues for chip-to-chip bonding and
will allow future SiP products to be made smaller and thinner,
while offering higher speed and larger capacity.

Features of the newly developed technology are as follows:

(1) Room temperature chip-to-chip interconnection using
caulking1 technique
For chip-to-chip interconnection, a mechanical caulking
operation is used that makes use of the plasticity of gold stud
bumps. This enables the gold stud bumps and through-holes to be
interconnected electrically at room temperature simply by
applying force. This bonding technique can also be used for
room-temperature connection between a chip and substrate. While
conventional through-hole electrode (interconnection) techniques
using solder or similar metallic bumps require high-temperature
bonding, this new technology simplifies the manufacturing
process by enabling bonding at room temperature.

(2) Through-hole electrode formation on back-side of wafer by
means of a low-temperature process.

Through-hole electrodes are formed on the backside of a wafer as
thin as 30 to 50 m. As these through-hole electrodes are fixed
to the glass wafer with a removable adhesive, they must be
formed at a temperature lower than the maximum temperature that
the adhesive can withstand. With this new process, the etching
and film forming occurs at a temperature less than half that
previously required (less than 150C). Furthermore, the
breakdown voltage between the through-holes attains the same
level as inside the LSIs.

differences in deformation between materials.

* Japan Banking Crisis Over, Says Fitch
---------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings, the international rating agency, says in a report
published on June 7 that Japan's banking crisis is over,
although more regional consolidation is needed in the sector.

In the updated "Japanese Banking System" report, Fitch says that
with growing deregulation in the post 'bubble' period, the
Japanese banking sector has gradually transformed into a modern
financial services industry comparable with other major
developed countries', although the banks are still struggling to
build their own successful business models.

Fitch believes the regional bank sector and other smaller
deposit taking institutions will see substantial strategic
consolidation in what is still a fragmented banking system.
There are about 1,500 small deposit-taking institutions and a
giant government-owned postal saving system. The privatization
of the postal system is underway and could have a substantial
impact on the banking sector, particularly if the post office is
allowed to compete for loan business as well as deposits.

However, the process will take another 12 years, and the
ultimate pace and form of privatization could still change
significantly depending on political debate. Consequently, Fitch
believes that the current banking landscape in Japan is still in
flux and will continue to evolve.

In the report, Fitch notes that the liberalization of Japan's
banking regulations that began in the late 1970s was too slow to
cope with the rapid developments in financial markets. Fitch
believes this contributed to the asset price bubble of the
1980s. The 'main bank' system, where each major corporate
borrower had a very close relationship with a particular bank
often cemented by cross shareholdings, in tandem with the
'convoy system', in which the pace of deregulation was
determined by the slowest i.e. weakest of the 'convoy' of banks,
exacerbated the aftermath of the bubble, by delaying
restructuring in both the corporate and financial sectors. Fitch
believes that this, in turn, delayed economic recovery in the
1990s and ultimately crippled the banking system between 1995
and 2004.

The crisis in the Japanese banking system began to surface in
1995 when credit cooperatives failed and the Bank of Japan
stepped in and extended special loans. Since then, 172 deposit
taking institutions, including banks, have failed. The
government has spent 5% of Japan's GDP to protect senior
creditors from losses arising from bank failures and an
additional 2% of GDP to prevent the banking system from melting
down.

However, with Japan's economic outlook improving, the corporate
sector having gone through a major period of restructuring,
particularly in the weaker sectors such as construction, real
estate and retailing, and the banks having recognized and
provided for or written off a substantial proportion of their
bad loans, the authorities ended the temporary measures to
support depositors as of 1 April 2005. Fitch believes that in
future, this date will be considered the end of Japan's banking
crisis.

ATLAS CONSOLIDATED: Earmarks US$180 Mln for Carmen Mine
-------------------------------------------------------
Atlas Consolidated and Mining Development Corp. increased its
budget for its Carmen copper mine in Cebu to US$180 million from
US$150 million, The Manila Bulletin reveals.

The mining firm is gearing to start operating its Carmen copper
mine, which is estimated to yield around 300,000 to 400,000
metric tons (MT) of iron concentrates that will bring huge added
revenue.

Before its suspension of operations in 1994, the Carmen mine
produced at a peak 110,000 MT per day from open pit and
underground block caving which made it then the largest copper
mine in Asia. It was also among the lowest cost producers of
copper in the world with its full gravity block caving practiced
for many years in the copper mine.

Atlas is also looking to strike a deal with several foreign
investors who are willing to either lend cash or infuse equity
into the Company.

Aside from settling financing for the Carmen project, Atlas is
also in the process of paying off benefits for its labor. The
firm is still resolving matters with its former employees or it
cannot proceed with the rehabilitation of the mine and
reconstruction of its offices.

BELLE CORPORATION: To Build Medical Center for Japan Clients
------------------------------------------------------------
Belle Corporation will take advantage of the emerging medical
tourism industry and build a medical and wellness center at the
Tagaytay Highlands, BusinessWorld reports.

The firm is looking to invite and talk with Japanese investors
on how to proceed with the construction of the center, which
will cater to the needs of Japanese retirees.

The Board of Investments and the Philippine embassy in Tokyo
arranged a meeting last month between Belle officials and
leaders of various Japanese medical and retirement communities.

The Company is keen on developing an international retirement
community, capitalizing on the high cost of retirement and lack
of doctors and nurses in Japan.

But aside from Japanese clients, Belle said it will also be
looking to market the project to Filipinos living in the U.S.

BELLE CORPORATION: Still Can't Make Allocations for Expansion
-------------------------------------------------------------
Belle Corporation issued this announcement in reference to the
news article entitled "Belle eyes property-sale proceeds to fund
expansion" published in the June 6, 2005 issue of The Manila
Times.

The article reported that:

"REAL estate developer Belle Corp. plans to spend the proceeds
of a planned eight-hectare property sale for three major
projects in Tagaytay Highlands this year. The Company is
allotting some P1.3 billion in capital spending for these
projects, which include the Sports Barn, Saratoga Hills and
Plantation Hills. To finance its capital spending, the Company
is banking on the proceeds from the sale of a property on the
Coastal Road, according to William Ocier, Belle vice chair.
Belle expects to generate between P2.4 billion and P3.2 billion
from the sale of its eight-hectare reclaimed property along
Roxas Boulevard and Diosdado Macapagal Avenue. The property is
valued between P30,000 and P40,000 per square meter."

Belle Corporation, in its letter to the Philippine Stock
Exchange dated June 6, 2005, stated that:

"We confirm that Belle intends to utilize the funds that it
expects to generate from its sale of its Manila Bay Reclamation
Area property for its development projects within its Tagaytay
and Batangas development areas, as well as for debt reduction.
At this stage, however, Belle does not yet have a purchase
agreement for any prospective buyer, for which reason, Belle is
still unable to make any confirmation as to a definite timetable
within which the funds it foresees it will generate will be
expended. Until such time that Belle has completed selling
efforts with regard to its Manila Bay area property, it will be
unable to come up with a more definite fund disbursement
schedule and firm budgetary allocations."

CAMP JOHN: Prepares to Fight BCDA in Court
------------------------------------------
Camp John Hay Development Corporation (CJHDevco) said it will
engaged in a legal battle with the Bases Conversion Development
Authority (BCDA) should the government pursue its plan to bring
in a new investor for Camp John Hay, The Philippine Daily
Inquirer says.

In a statement, CJHDevCo said it is ready for a "legal
showdown".

"If BCDA thinks it can ease out CJHDevco just like that, it's
wrong. We have infused Php4 billion in investments in John Hay,
generated jobs and income not only for our employers, but also
for the local tourism industry," the infuriated CJHDevCo
declared.

The present Camp John Hay operator insisted BCDA cannot legally
bring in a new developer since the lease agreement between the
tow parties inked in 1996 and the succeeding memoranda of
agreement are still in effect.

"If the government through BCDA cannot make good on its promise
to the current developer of a 5-percent tax on gross income
earned in lieu of all taxes, what more for tax holidays, rewards
and other benefits for newcomers allegedly superior even to the
Subic Special Economic Zone," the Company said.

In order to attract potential investors, BCDA have reportedly
offered Philippine Economic Zone Authority (Peza) incentives
that are deemed more attractive than current investor perks
under the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority package.

BCDA claimed a few have shown interest to manage John Hay.

LEPANTO CONSOLIDATED: Says Union Protest Under Control
------------------------------------------------------
Lepanto Consolidated Mining Company issued this announcement in
reference to the news article entitled "Lepanto strike paralyzes
operation" published in the June 6, 2005 issue of BusinessWorld.

The article reported that:

"The strike of some 1,700 rank and file employees of Lepanto
Consolidated Mining Corp. has crippled the Company's underground
operations. Lepanto, which produces an average of 2,000 tons of
gold ore per day, is the oldest and biggest gold producer in the
country to date. The strike stemmed from a deadlock in
negotiations between management and union, the Lepanto Employees
Union, last month. Among the items which resulted in the
deadlock in negotiations was the union's demand for a wage
increase."

Lepanto Consolidated Mining Company, in its letter to the
Philippine Stock Exchange dated June 6, 2005, stated that:

"Please be advised that we have reported to you by way of our 2
June 2005 disclosure the matters stated in the subject news
report to wit:

1) That there have been no underground operations because the
workers were being prevented from entering the underground mine;

2) The dispute involves the daily wage increases for 3 years;

3) The DOLE Secretary had assumed jurisdiction over the dispute
and we are working with the DOLE to resolve the problem."

LIFETIME PLANS: Accuses SEC of Partiality
-----------------------------------------
Lifetime Plans Inc. claimed the corporate regulator was
prejudiced in acting on its case, reports The Philippine Daily
Inquirer.

Lifetime Plans spokesperson Samuel Torres said the Securities
and Exchange Commission (SEC) was not able to examine closely
the documents it reportedly submitted to the regulator. Lifetime
claimed the SEC ignored its submissions as constituting full
compliance with SEC requirements.

Mr. Torres said Lifetime Plans, sister firm of ailing Pacific
Plans, was deemed to have completely meet all of SEC's
requirements as early as last month, contrary to SEC's claims.

Lifetime Plans reportedly submitted a special audit reports
prepared and certified by the accounting firm of Punongbayan &
Araullo and certificates of registration of motor vehicles in
the Company's name after the vehicles were transferred as part
of the spin-off.

He said the submission of the audit report on the "collection of
other receivables" and "proof of transfer of ownership of
transportation equipment in the name of the transferee-
corporation" was in line with a Feb. 15 letter of the SEC and an
April 7 order by the SEC's Company registration and monitoring
department.


PACIFIC PLANS: Rehab Petition Hit Pre-Need Industry's Sales
-----------------------------------------------------------
Pacific Plans Incorporated's application for rehabilitation
allegedly caused pre-need industry sales to drop by 24 percent
as of end-April, according to Today News.

Many prospective clients reportedly avoided buying plans
following news Pacific Plans has sought for court protection.

The number of plans sold in April alone decreased by about 25
percent with education plans plunging as much as 60 percent.

The only type of securities that kept afloat were life plans,
sales of which rose about 66 percent year-on-year.


RB PALOMPON: Liquidation Proceedings Near End

* Senate to Hear Planholders of Ailing Pre-need Firms
-----------------------------------------------------
The Senate Committee on Banks, Financial Institutions and
Currency said it will hold a separate hearing for planholder
complaints regarding troubled pre-need providers College
Assurance Plan Philippines (CAP) and Pacific Plans Inc., reports
The Philippine Star.

The Committee is setting the date of the hearing, which will
serve as a forum for the affected planholders to air their
complaints before senators and officials of the Securities and
Exchange Commission (SEC).

Sen. Edgardo Angara said that the focus of his committee, which
is to craft a strong regulatory framework for the pre-need
sector, "should be the thrust and direction of any inquiry into
the troubled sector".

He believes the SEC will take immediate and necessary actions
after the palnholders of the two pre-need firms are heard.

The Committee is determined to send to the plenary for passage a
draft law that will shield planholders from financially troubled
pre-need companies. One of the solid and foolproof protection
scheme being eyed is reimbursement.

"The draft law that the committee will propose will combine two
notable elements - full protection of planholders and at the
same time setting the environment to make the pre-need sector
stable and viable," Sen Angara said.

SEATOWN CORPORATION: Books SG$654,000 in Losses
-----------------------------------------------
Seatown Corp. Ltd. furnished the Singapore STock Exchange (SGX)
a copy of its half-year financial statement and dividend
announcement.

The Company posted a loss for the period ended March 31, 2005 of
SG$654,000.

Turnover of the Group declined from SG$3,138,000 to SG$2,967,000
for the period ended March 31, 2005.  The decrease in Group's
turnover was mainly due to the cessation in the building
construction activities.

The Group's operating loss (after taxation before minority
interest) has decreased to a loss of SG$1,311,000 from a loss of
SG$1,355,000 in the previous financial period.  The loss in the
current period was mainly attributed by the losses in the
following:

(a) Manufacturing of precast concrete activity of SG$790,000;

(b) Professional fees incurred to implement the conditional
Investment Agreement with King Premier Holdings Limited of
SG$480,000; and

(c) Provision for interest for corporate guarantees issued for
facilities given to subsidiaries crystallized of SG$253,000.

The above losses were partly offset by allowance for doubtful
debts written back of SG$303,000 and interest on borrowings
waived by a bank of SG$222,000.
