members of A AB Computer Rentals Pty Ltd (In Liquidation), will
be held at the offices of O'Keeffe Walton Richwol, on June 17,
2005 at 4:30 p.m. for the purpose of laying before the meeting

AGENIX LIMITED: Commits to Thromboview Manufacturing
----------------------------------------------------
Agenix is shortly to enter into a manufacturing and technology
transfer agreement with an FDA approved commercial scale
contract manufacturing Company.

The manufacturing of ThromboView will be transferred to this
Company in what will be a multi-million dollar commitment by the
Board to provide manufacturing scale up and supply of
ThromboView product for Phase III trials and ultimately
commercial sale.

ThromboView has continued to achieve 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 to maximize
shareholder value.

Agenix continues to believe that it will complete a sales,
marketing and distribution agreement by December 2005.

The success of the ThromboView program, has also resulted in the
decision of the Board to commit to development of a second
product using the antibody fragment developed for ThromboView
and a different imaging technique to image arterial clots. These
clots are associated with heart attack and stroke.

This new product will not replace ThromboView but serve a
completely unrelated and much larger market opportunity. Deaths
from PEs (pulmonary embolisms, or blood clots in the lung)
account for around 200,000 deaths each year in the United States
alone. Heart attack and stroke account for around 900,000 deaths
each year in the United States.

While development is at an early stage, given the experience
gained in the development of Thromboview, the use of the same
antibody fragment and the world-class nature of the Agenix staff
and facility, there is an expectation that the timeline and the
development cost of the new product will be shortened.

The Phase II DVT (deep vein thrombosis) trial in the United
States and Canada is underway. The first patient in that trial
was recruited in early March 2005.

Recruitment for the Phase 1b PE trial in Australia has
commenced.

AMP LIMITED: Reviews Indian JV Life Insurance Business
------------------------------------------------------
AMP Limited has announced that it is exploring options for
restructuring the ownership of its joint venture life insurance
business in India, AMP Sanmar.

AMP Life has a 26 percent stake in the Chennai-based joint
venture, which began operations in January 2002. Its joint
venture partner is Sanmar, a well-known Indian conglomerate in
January 2002. Its joint venture partner is Sanmar, a well-known
Indian conglomerate with diversified investments. AMP Sanmar has
approximately 800 staff and 8000 agents, and is the tenth
largest life insurance business in India.

AMP Chief Executive Officer Andrew Mohl said that AMP had
appointed a local financial advisor to review options for
ownership of the business, which include an outright sale or
bringing in anew partner. Sanmar is also reviewing its stake in
the joint venture. The review is expected to take several months
and has no fixed timeframe.

"We have decided that the time is now right to review our
presence in the Indian market. AMP Sanmar is in its fourth year
of operations and, while growing from a small base, is still
several years away from generating profits," Mr. Mohl said.

"AMP has made it clear in recent years that it is focused on
driving shareholder value in its core wealth management
businesses in Australia and New Zealand. Australia is the fourth
largest pension market in the world and growing strongly, with
significant opportunities for us across the market. We are also
intent on strengthening our positioning in New Zealand."

Mr. Mohl said that AMP's focus in Asia would be centered in
asset management through AMP Capital Investors. This approach
more readily leverages existing capabilities and requires
significantly less capital than life insurance.

"While we will be selective in the asset management areas and
countries that we target, we see particular opportunities in
property and infrastructure," he said.

"India remains an important market for AMP Capital Investors,
with a presence that already includes two infrastructure funds
and other investments.

"The global listed property fund launched last year in Japan
with Nikko is another good example of our strategy in Asia, with
over AU$1.5 billion in funds raised in 2004. More recently, this
product has been launched in Taiwan and Singapore with
encouraging results."

The carrying value of AMP Life's 26 percent investment in AMP
Sanmar was less than AU$10 million at 31 December 2004. At the
same date, AMP had shareholder capital resources of AU$5.7
billion.

AUSTRALIAN FINANCIAL: ASIC Cooks Up Conviction for Director
-----------------------------------------------------------
Mr. Darren Patrick Byrne, of Mernda in Victoria, was sentenced
on Monday in the Heidelberg Magistrates Court after pleading
guilty to lodging a document with the Australian Securities and
Investments Commission (ASIC) that contained a false or
misleading statement.

Mr. Byrne was convicted and fined AU$1,500.00. Mr. Byrne was
also required to pay court costs of AU$1,077.50. As a result of
this conviction Mr. Byrne is prohibited from managing a
corporation until 6 June 2010.

An ASIC investigation found that Mr. Byrne, a director of
Australian Financial & Insurance Service Pty Limited (Australian
Financial & Insurance Service), authorized the lodgment of an
application for the voluntary deregistration of his company.

Applicants are required to make a number of declarations when
lodging this document with ASIC, including that the company has
no outstanding liabilities and is not party to legal
proceedings.

When the application was lodged in January 2003, Mr. Byrne was
aware that his company was involved in legal proceedings
relating to AU$17,343.00 the company allegedly owed to Connellan
Industries Pty Ltd (Connellan Industries). Connellan Industries
had commenced the shopfit of a restaurant to be called 'Pasta
World' which Mr. Byrne was endeavoring to establish.

"Individuals who attempt to deregister a company knowing that
there are outstanding liabilities or ongoing legal proceedings
relating to that company are engaging in conduct that is
dishonest and contravenes the law," ASIC's Director of
Complaints Compliance Actions, Mr. Adrian Borchok said.

"ASIC will not hesitate to prosecute individuals who lodge
statutory forms knowing that the forms contain false or
misleading statements," Mr. Borchok added.

The charges were prosecuted by the Commonwealth Director of
Public Prosecutions.


AUSTRALIAN WINE: Faces Another Loss
-----------------------------------

details.

In fiscal 2004, AWL tallied a net loss of AU$103,600 for fiscal
2004 on the back of AU$4.49 million in revenues.

FORTESCUE METALS: Iron Ore Upgrade Sends Stock Soaring
------------------------------------------------------
Shares in Fortescue Metals have recovered following news of an
upgrade of its flagship Christmas Creek iron ore deposit in
Western Australia's Pilbara region, the Sydney Morning Herald
relates.

Fortescue, which has been questioned about the quality of its
iron ore resources and its ability to keep the AU$1.85-billion
mine running, is now confident the Christmas Creek resource
would yield a hefty 1.14 billion tonnes.

The firm is continuing to drill aggressively at Christmas Creek
to move more tonnage into the indicated and measured status, the
only two categories that can be considered for conversion to ore
reserve status through the definitive feasibility study process
due to be completed in the third quarter.

The grade of the Christmas Creek deposit has improved after
recent drilling, with a 38 percent increase in the resource
tonnage that sits within the "high grade" category to 377
million tonnes.

Court of New South Wales has ordered that a criminal charge
against Mr. Charles Abbott, the former Deputy Chairman of HIH

Mr. Abbott was facing one charge of dishonestly misusing his
position as a company director under section 184 (2)(a) of the
Corporations Act, brought by ASIC, into the affairs of HIH.

ASIC had alleged that on 14 March 2001, Mr Abbott dishonestly

company associated with him, namely Ashkirk Pty Limited.

The Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions (CDPP)
prosecuted the matter.

an ex-officio indictment against Mr. Abbott.

OROTON: Sees Lower Earnings Over Higher Restructuring Costs
-----------------------------------------------------------
Based on trading to date and the ongoing restructuring
activities being undertaken within the business, Oroton Group is
in a position to update earnings guidance for the six months
ending July 31, 2005.

At this early stage, Oroton Group expects that earnings before
interest, tax and amortization (EBITA) for the twelve months
ending July 31, 2005 will be between AU$8.5-AU$9.5 million
(2004: AU$14.5 million). It should be noted that just under two
months of trading remain in the current financial year. These
two months typically generate the majority of Oroton Group's
earnings for the second half of the year and contribute
significantly to the group's annual result.

The lower earnings expectation for the group reflects both the
impact of relatively difficult trading conditions during the
period, increased overhead costs and expenses associated with
Oroton Group's restructuring activities. As part of the ongoing
tightening of operational and financial discipline across the
business, a review of the group's balance sheet is also being
conducted, which includes a focus on capitalized expenses and
inventory carrying values. The review is not expected to be
concluded prior to finalizing the Oroton Group's financial
result for the twelve months ending July 31, 2005 to be
announced in September 2005.

On Tuesday, Oroton Group advised that it has ended exclusive
discussions with Catalyst Investment Managers Pty Limited
concerning a potential privatization of the Oroton Group.

Oroton Group will incur costs of approximately AU$1.0 million
associated with the assessment of this potential transaction.
These costs are not reflected in the earnings guidance as
detailed above.

PREMIER APPLIANCE: Goes Under Voluntary Administration
------------------------------------------------------
A voluntary administrator has been appointed for Premier
Appliance Service ACT Pty Ltd., according to Canberra Times.

The failed firm, one of Canberra's three major white goods
repairers, was prompted to close its doors and appoint
administrator Bill Rangott of Rangott and Slaven due mainly to
delays by major suppliers to pay claims.

The Company's business director Lyn Freestone said Premier
Appliance had performed warranty work for numerous
manufacturers, and while some had been excellent, others had
delayed or disputed claims, or even refused to pay for work,
saying invoices had been received too late.

Mr. Rangott, who is expected to recommend liquidation, said
failed firm's predicament occurred because of timing problems.

"Major suppliers require their payments within 30 days but they
often don't pay for 120 days," he said.

The administrator is moving to realize some of Premier
Appliance's assets and is expected to call a first creditors
meeting very soon.

People with goods at the business should telephone the
administrator on 62851430. Mr. Rangott expected to open the
premises for a few days so people could collect their goods.


SAGE TRANSPORT: Appoints Official Liquidator

SANTOS LIMITED: Adopts International Accounting Standards
---------------------------------------------------------
Santos Limited has adopted the Australian equivalent of the
International Financial Reporting Standards (A-IFRS) as from 1
January 2005, as required by all Australian companies.

"The adoption of A-IFRS is a major step towards standardizing
accounting practices around the world, which will provide
enhanced transparency and increased comparability between
companies," said Mr. Peter Wasow, Santos' Chief Financial
Officer.

The changes to accounting policy will not impact in any way on
Santos' business strategy, operations, cash flow, credit ratings
or capacity to continue to pay fully franked dividends.

The adoption of A-IFRS will, however, have an impact on the
presentation of the Company's Balance Sheet which will be
reflected in adjustments to shareholders' equity, as is usually
the case when changes to accounting policies are required to be
adopted.

The accounting policy changes will also have flow-on
consequences for the Income Statement as it applies to the
accounting for impairment of assets, taxation, restoration and
exploration and evaluation expenditure.

The restated full year 2004 Net Profit After Tax is estimated to
be approximately $344 million as compared with $380 million
under the previous accounting standards. Although the restated
2004 result is lower, future profits will be positively affected
by the changes.

Santos estimates that the impact on the opening balance sheet as
at 1 January 2004 is a reduction in shareholders' equity of
approximately $1,014 million from $3,088 million to $2,074
million.

Although detailed accounts adopting A-IFRS are not required to
be released until the 2005 half year report is issued in August
2005, as foreshadowed in the Annual General Meeting, Santos has
elected to highlight the major accounting changes at this time
to assist in an understanding of the transitional changes.

As part of the changes, Santos has elected to account for its
exploration and evaluation expenditure using the "Successful
Efforts" methodology, which represents a significant change from
its past policy of capitalizing all of these costs.

This means that Santos will immediately expense exploration and
evaluation costs unless they result in the discovery of
potentially commercial hydrocarbons.

"The move to account for exploration and evaluation expenditure
using a Successful Efforts methodology will bring Santos into
line with the majority of its global and Australian peers," Mr.
Wasow said.

"Over the past four years, Santos' growth strategy has
transitioned from near-field exploration concentrated in central
Australia, to growing the business through high impact
exploration in offshore Australian and international basins.

"We believe that this changing nature of our business should be
reflected in the way we account for and report exploration
expenditure.

"Likewise, the move to adopt the US dollar as the functional
currency for operations in the Timor Gap, Indonesia and PNG will
align us closer to our peers, and will provide a more natural
hedge to our US dollar revenues," he said.

gas, which, if successful, will provide incremental production
into the existing gas contract.

Standard & Poor's, the leading provider of equity indices in

AKAI HOLDINGS: Liquidator Mulls Resignation
-------------------------------------------
Notice is hereby given that Mr. Fan Wai Kuen (the Retiring
Liquidators) wishes to resign as a joint and several liquidator
of Akai Holdings Limited.

It is proposed that Mr. Cosimo Borrelli be appointed as the
replacement joint and several liquidator 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, under 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 June 1, 2005 that Mr. Fan be removed from his office
as joint and several liquidator of the Company 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
Stokes & Master, solicitors for the Liquidators at the address
below, within 21 days from the date of this advertisement.

BANK MANDIRI: Delays IDR2.9-Trillion Bond Sale
----------------------------------------------
Bank Mandiri is putting off a planned bond sale worth IDR2.9
trillion due to rising borrowing costs, reports The Standard
News.

According to the bank's treasury director JB Kendarto, the bank
is postponing the bonds sale until market conditions improve and
borrowing costs go down, adding that it hopes to push through
with the deal in the third quarter if the market looks good.

Bank Mandiri had hired Deutsche Bank and JPMorgan Chase to
manage the bonds sale, in order to pay IDR2.4 trillion debt that
matures at the end of the month.

Another reason for the delay of the bonds sale is the recent
investigation on the bank in relation to a lending scandal that
involved the extension of loans to several ineligible companies.
This has caused the bank's first quarter profit for 2005 to
plunge by as much as 70% to IDR519 billion, which has also led
investors to be more cautious in buying its bonds.

Bisnis Indonesia reports that Bank Mandiri has instead decided
to pay its IDR2.4 trillion debt with its own funds.

* Government Eyes Securities Sale to Trim Budget Deficit
--------------------------------------------------------
The Indonesian government is planning to sell treasury bonds
worth IDR2.5 trillion in efforts to reduce its increasing budget
deficit, reports the Jakarta Post.

The bond sale, which is scheduled for June 14, 2005, would be a
two-tranche auction, where 11-year and 15-year treasury bonds
will be offered by bidding by the government, according to the
Ministry of Finance's treasury director Mulia Nasution.

The government had earlier sold two-year and 11-year bonds for a
total of IDR4.65 trillion, and may need to raise its target for
bonds sales from IDR43.1 trillion to IDR42.7 trillion to provide
for fuel subsidies and facilitate the reconstruction of tsunami-
hit Aceh province.

Global rating agency Moody's Investor Servicehas given a B2
rating to the country's long-term local currency debt, while
Standard & Poor's gave the same debt a BB rating.

JAPAN AIRLINES: To Expand E-ticketing Services
----------------------------------------------
From June 13, Japan Airlines customers will be able to use JAL
international e-tickets for greater convenience on journeys
between Japan and Europe. Passengers traveling on JAL
international routes via Heathrow using either British Airways
(BA) operated JAL code share flights, or BA connection flight
services will be able to purchase one simple easy-to-use e-
ticket for the whole of their routing.

Up till now the departure date, flight number and other data
have been printed out on paper tickets provided to the passenger
in advance of travel. This is now gradually being replaced by
the paperless e-ticket. By inputting the same data in JAL's
computer system, customers need only to provide their e-ticket
details, sent by e-mail (PDF) or FAX, at the airport check-in
counter to receive their boarding pass. As the customer's copy
of an e-ticket can be reissued easily and free of charge,
reservations and the purchase of an e-ticket can be made via
JAL's Website by 14:00 the day before the flight. This is
helpful for customers who have to make urgent trips and avoids
the inconvenience of lost tickets. E-tickets can also be
purchased at a travel agent (IATA agent).

JAL operates a twice-daily service between Tokyo (Narita) and
London (Heathrow) and a daily service between Osaka (Kansai) and
London (Heathrow). Passengers can connect via Heathrow to and
from Hamburg and Stuttgart in Germany using daily JAL code share
services operated by BA. Other European destinations are served
by using one of BA's numerous connection services.

JAL was the first Japanese carrier to introduce e-tickets in May
2000, and the range of use has since expanded. In March this
year, JAL created an e-ticket alliance with American Airlines
(AA) enabling passenger to purchase JAL international e-tickets
for travel between Japan and some 71 North American
destinations. JAL plans to actively expand its alliance of e-
tickets with other airlines and contribute in fulfilling the
International Air Transport Association (IATA) aim of making
worldwide passenger air travel paperless through the use of e-
tickets.

JAPAN AIRLINES: Launches Domestic Late Night Cargo Flights
----------------------------------------------------------
Japan Airlines will launch scheduled late night domestic air
cargo flights between Tokyo and Kumamoto in central Kyushu, from
July 7.

Kumamoto is located at the center of Kyushu, southernmost of the
four main islands of Japan. Kyushu is a major center of high
technology industries and is also a major source of fresh farm
and marine produce for the Tokyo market.

JAL will be operating the night cargo flights under strict
environmental considerations to minimize noise. The new flights
will initially operate three times a week, increasing to daily
service from November.

SERVICE DETAILS & FLIGHT SCHEDULING

JAL will operate the new domestic cargo flights using the belly
space of passenger aircraft. The aircraft to be used are Airbus
300-600R types that the airline uses for passenger flights
during the day. These aircraft have belly space for 10 tons of
cargo. JAL has chosen to use these aircraft because of their low
noise rating, in consideration of communities near the airport.

To further minimize noise disturbance to local communities, the
flights are being timed to arrive at Kumamoto as early as
possible and to depart for Tokyo as late as possible. Cockpit
crew will make maximum use of noise abatement procedures, such
as refraining from using reverse thrust on landing as much as
possible. They will also use reduced power landing approaches
and selected take-off patterns to reduce the flight noise
imprint on the ground. In preparation for the new cargo flights,
in February JAL made test-flights to assess night noise effects
in the Kumamoto Airport area.

CARGO MARKET DEMAND

JAL expects that demand on the route will include small
packages, business documents and perishable produce, with total
two-way demand running close to 20 tons per day with the A300-
600B. In future JAL plans to use the Boeing 777, which has a
belly cargo capacity of 15 tons (30 tons round-trip) and is also
a low-noise aircraft.

JAL has chosen Kumamoto to launch domestic late-night cargo
service partly because the airport is at the center of an
agricultural region producing seasonal crops of fruit and
vegetables in great demand in the Tokyo metropolitan area.

The airline expects that Kumamoto Airport will become a major
new logistics center. It lies at the heart of Kyushu, is easily
accessible by highway from all over the island and is only 10
minutes' drive from the nearest highway interchange.

MITSUBISHI MOTORS: Supplies Otti Minivehicle to Nissan
------------------------------------------------------
Nissan Motor Co., Ltd., on June 7 released the Otti, its third
mini-vehicle model for the Japanese market.

In keeping with its tagline of "SHIFT_convenience," the Otti has
been designed and engineered for ease of use in everyday
driving, thanks to its compact packaging and abundance of
ingenious storage places.

The Otti's overall height is low enough for parking in
multilevel parking facilities. A large glass area and square
body form also make the Otti exceptionally easy to drive.
Moreover, the model offers a choice of two engines - the 3G83
engine and the 3G83 intercooled turbo engine - that balance
driving ease with high performance. The Otti also features an
outstanding suspension system that offers a remarkably
comfortable driving experience.

The Otti is supplied to Nissan by Mitsubishi Motors Corp., under
an OEM supply arrangement. Nissan's two other mini-vehicles
models are the Moco and the Clipper.

The unique features distinguishing the Otti include:
1) Compact packaging
2) Ingenious storage places
3) Exceptional everyday driving ease

Otti Overview

1. Smart-looking body form expressing functionality and openness
The stable-looking square body together with the square pattern
of the grill project an image of unity.

Styled around a square motif, the grille of the RS/RX Series
models gives the vehicle a sporty impression.

The Otti comes in ten distinctive body colors, including Rheims
Blue, an exclusive Nissan color.

2. Smart-looking interior blending functionality, openness and
newness

The centrally positioned speedometer accentuates the unique
instrument panel design.

Designed for optimum convenience, the instrument panel has the
controls and instruments concentrated in the center, with
storage spaces distributed on both sides.

For an enhanced impression of sportiness, the RS/RX Series
models adopt a three-spoke steering wheel wrapped in synthetic
leather.

3. Practicality

A comfortable, roomy interior is combined with a compact body
size for nimble and easy driving.

The large glass area allows excellent outward visibility for
ease of driving in everyday use.

With an overall height of 1,550 mm, the Otti can also be parked
in multilevel parking facilities.

The interior abounds in a variety of handy storage places
designed to match the uses of each seating position, including a
multi-purpose drink holder on the driver's side door.

4. Mechanisms

The 3G83 engine combines optimum city driving ease with
outstanding economy. The 3G83 intercooled turbo engine delivers
ample power for enjoyable driving in town, on expressways and
even on mountain roads. The Otti is available with three
different types of transmissions, including a five-speed manual
transmission.

The suspension system used on models powered by the 3G83
intercooled turbo engine incorporates a reinforced front
stabilizer and performance rod as well as an additional rear
stabilizer to provide superb handling and stability.

5. Safety and environmental performance

Standard safety features on all models include ABS, Electronic
Brake-force Distribution (EBD), Brake Assist and a high-mounted
stop lamp.

The 2WD models fitted with the 3G83 engine are certified as
super ultra-low emission vehicles (SU-LEVs)*1 because they emit
75% fewer emissions than the levels required by Japan's 2005
exhaust emission regulations. The 4WD models fitted with the
3G83 engine or the 3G83 intercooled turbo engine are certified
as U-LEVs*1 because they emit 50% fewer emissions than the 2005
regulations. Moreover, the 2WD and 4WD models equipped with the
3G83 engine and 5-speed manual transmission as well as the 2WD
models equipped with the 3G83 engine and either the 3-speed or
4-speed automatic transmission also achieve Japan's 2010 fuel
economy standards plus an additional 5%, thereby qualifying for
tax reductions*2 under the Green Tax program in Japan.

*1. The low-emission vehicle certification system of the
Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport was inaugurated
in April 2000 to encourage the penetration of low-emission
vehicles through their selection by ordinary consumers.
Following the adoption of the 2005 new long-term exhaust
emission regulations in September 2003, the system was revised
in October of that year to establish two certification
categories. U-LEV certification requires an additional 50%
reduction of nitrogen oxide (NOx) and non-methane hydrocarbon
(NMHC) emissions from the levels mandated by the 2005 exhaust
emission regulations and SU-LEV certification requires an
additional 75% reduction of these exhaust gas constituents.

*2. For vehicles complying with the requirements of the Green
Tax program, the automobile acquisition tax is reduced by 10,000
yen on personal-use vehicles that are newly registered by March
31, 2006, and for U-LEVs the automobile tax is reduced by 25%
for one year beginning from the next fiscal year after a vehicle
is registered. However, these tax reduction measures do not
apply to Autech models because they require on-site registration
at a vehicle inspection and registration office.

Origins of the Otti model name

The model name was coined from the Italian word "ottimo,"
meaning optimum. It expresses the Otti's unique product
character that optimally balances all essential elements in a
compact vehicle package.

Sales target: 3,000 units/month

Dealers selling the Otti: All Nissan dealers

Sales launch events: Saturday and Sunday, June 18-19 and July
25-26, 2005

SOJITZ HOLDINGS: JCR Assigns BBB- to Bonds
------------------------------------------
Japan Credit Rating Agency (JCR) has assigned a BBB- rating to
the bonds of Sojitz Holdings Corporation.

RATIONALE

Sojitz Holdings has been making efforts to improve the earnings
and financial structures drastically in accordance with the new
business plan. It incurred a net loss for fiscal 2004 ended
March 31, 2005, recording a large extraordinary loss. It offset
the drop in equity with issues of preferred shares.

On the other hand, its net D/E ratio has improved through
cutback on interest-bearing debt using proceeds from sales of
assets. The quality of assets improved. However, there remain
some money-losing operations. Additional loss might incur
depending on the trend of these businesses.

There also remains issue on quality of the capital, which
consists of preferred shares. Sojitz Holdings will repurchase
and extinguish the preferred shares issued in and after next
fiscal year to countervail dilution of common stocks, using the
periodic earnings to be generated. In such a case, however, it
is required to assure earnings as much as that recorded for
fiscal 2004 stably into the future.

Sojitz Holdings obtained larger pretax profit before
extraordinary items than the estimated amount for fiscal 2004.
It aims to further strengthen the earnings power by allocating
the resources to the core business areas. However, it is
difficult to expand the earnings while enhancing risk
management. JCR deems it necessary to watch carefully the future
earnings trend.

* Seven Major Banks Swing to FY/2004 Profit
-------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services announced that the financial
results for Japanese major banks and banking groups in fiscal
2004 show clear progress in the disposal of non-performing loans
(NPLs), which will allow the institutions to allocate management
resources in a more flexible manner to pursue their own business
strategies. The merits of these various plans should gradually
bear out over the medium term.

Except UFJ Holdings and Sumitomo Mitsui Financial Group (SMFG),
Japan's seven major banks and banking groups recorded net
profits for fiscal 2004 (ended March 31, 2005), a recovery from
net losses the previous year. Aggregate net profit stood at
JPY733.3 billion, compared with net losses of JPY638 billion in
fiscal 2003 and JPY4.6 trillion in fiscal 2002.

Currently, all outlooks on the long-term ratings on major banks
are positive, except for the stable outlook on Resona Bank Ltd.
Profitability and risk management will be key focal points for
potential upgrades going forward. The consolidated core
operating profit of the seven banks and bank groups stood at
JPY4.3 trillion in fiscal 2004, almost the same level as in the
previous year. The banks continued to face pressures on
profitability, including stagnant borrowing demand, thin lending
spreads, and decreased bond trading gains. Banks' gross lending
volume has been decreasing faster than risk-managed loan totals,
but the size of the decrease has been shrinking year by year.
One of the factors for this is a steady recovery of real estate
loans, non-recourse loans in particular.

In fact, gross lending volume increased at Mitsubishi Tokyo
Financial Group (MTFG) and Sumitomo Trust & Banking Co. Ltd.,
driven by the robust expansion of real estate loans. Other major
banks are also focusing more on this segment. The real estate
loan business is contributing to the growth of outstanding loans
and a recovery of spreads. However, risk management will become
an increasingly important factor, given the concentration risks
of these loans and the continued low land prices nationwide,
except for central Tokyo and a few other regions.

Altogether, major banks still suffer low loan-to-deposit ratios,
due to the disposal of high-interest NPLs and intensified
competition for prime customers. The ratio dropped at all banks
except for Sumitomo Mitsui Financial Group (SMFG) and Resona.
SMFG successfully increased lending to small and midsize
enterprises (SMEs), while deposits dropped at Resona.

Banks showed strong performance in fee income in fiscal 2004.
Each of the four-mega bank groups recorded an average of 500
billion in fee income in fiscal 2004. Particularly strong was
SMFG, which increased its fee income by 22 percent through
various sources, including sales of trust funds and annuity
insurance policies and arrangements of syndicated loans. Fee
income grew by more than 10 percent at all other banks and bank
groups, except for Resona. Operating expense results were mixed.
Resona reduced operating expenses by more than 25 percent, and
Chuo Mitsui Trust & Banking Co. Ltd. also achieved substantial
reductions. Meanwhile, the pace of cost cutting slowed at other
banks and bank groups. In fiscal 2005, operating expenses are
likely to increase at the new Mitsubishi UFJ Financial Group
(MUFG) to cover up-front consolidation costs. Expenses are
likely to increase at other banks as well, as they pursue
strategies to increase their lending to SMEs.

Banks made serious efforts to reduce NPLs in fiscal 2004 in line
with an October 2002 directive from the Financial Services
Agency (FSA) to cut NPLs by half. The progress in problem loans
disposal was aided in part by the domestic economic recovery.
The net NPL ratio has improved steadily to an average of 1.2
percent for major banks in March 2005, from 2.9 percent as of
March 2004 and 4.9 percent as of March 2003. Credit costs
increased at some banks, including SMFG, but decreased
substantially at the other banks and bank groups. In aggregate,
credit costs decreased by 43 percent to below 1 percent of total
outstanding loans. Mizuho group, in particular, achieved an
outstanding recovery in both its net NPL ratio and its credit
cost ratio, having posted extremely high credit costs in fiscal
2001 and 2002.

The industry's aggregate balance of Japan government bonds (JGB)
increased JPY8.3 trillion to JPY68 trillion. The increase was
due to the increase of total deposits, while loan demand
remained stagnant. Although the duration of these holdings is
relatively short and they are hedged to some extent, risk
management of these extremely large portfolios is of key
importance, especially if interest rates start to rise.

Tier 1 capital ratios improved at all banks and bank groups
except at SMFG. Also, the ratio of deferred tax assets to
capital also improved to an average of 27 percent in fiscal 2004
from 35 percent in fiscal 2003. Since banks are expecting to
recover a sizable amount of their outstanding loans, any new
regulation relating to deferred tax assets would not have a
large impact. On the other hand, capital quality remains weak at
most banks and bank groups in comparison with their
international peers, as illustrated by the high proportion of
preferred stock in capital. Capital increases may slow in fiscal
2005, since banks plan to apply surplus funds to repay public
funds they received from the government. Such a slowdown has
already been factored into the ratings, and will not have a
further impact unless banks experience a material decline in
their capital ratios.

Major banks and bank groups have generally conservative
projections for fiscal 2005. All banks anticipate operating
revenues to slightly decrease or level off, except for Sumitomo
Trust & Banking, which is expecting new profit contributions
from a leasing company acquired in April. SMFG, which posted a
net loss in fiscal 2004, is expecting an improvement, as are the
soon to merge companies MTFG and UFJ Holdings, which would have
posted a net loss in fiscal 2004 on a combined basis.

On the revenue side, the growth in loans to SMEs and individuals
is expected to offset to some extent sluggish loan growth to
large corporations. Fee income is also expected to increase,
though it will come under pressure from market forces.
Meanwhile, there can be no optimistic projection for an
improvement in profitability, given intensifying competition for
SME and individual customers, and the postponed deregulation of
the insurance business. Nevertheless, the NPL burden on banks
has eased, which should allow them to allocate more managerial
resources to strategic business areas. The merits of the banks'
strategies will become more evident and important towards
determining credit quality in the future.

HYNIX SEMICONDUCTOR: To Sell Overseas Bonds
-------------------------------------------
South Korean chipmaker Hynix Semiconductor Inc. said that it
plans to sell bonds overseas in order to repay its maturing
debts, Yonhap News reports.

According to the Company, it will conduct a fund-raising
campaign for the bonds sale in order to attract more foreign
investors to buy the bonds. The Company will host an investor
road show in Hong Kong, London, Singapore and the United States.
The bonds are also to be listed on the Singapore Stock Exchange.

Hynix Semiconductor 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.

LG CARD: Aims to Raise Enough Funds to Pay Debts
------------------------------------------------
LG Card Co. is hoping to earn KRW1.1 trillion in a planned bonds
sale to fund the Company's working capital and pay off debts,
Yonhap News reports.

The Company aims to generate KRW1.1 trillion from the sale. Some
KRW900 billion would go towards financing its working capital,
while the remainder (KRW200 billion) would be used to pay off
its maturing debts.

LG Card posted a huge net loss of KRW5.6 trillion in 2003, but
avoided bankruptcy due to a KRW5 trillion bailout package by
creditors last year. The troubled credit card firm was able to
reduce its losses to KRW81.6 billion in 2004, and garnered net
profit of KRW326 billion in the last quarter. For the first
quarter of 2005, the Company recorded a net profit of KRW292
billion.

LG Card's creditors are seeking to sell the Company for at least
KRW4.5 trillion before March 2006.

GULA PERAK: RAM Says Conditional Offer Won't Affect Ratings
-----------------------------------------------------------
Rating Agency Malaysia (RAM) said that Gula Perak Berhad
recently announced that Balqis Investment Limited had made a
conditional offer to buy a 32%-stake in the Group from Tan Sri
Lim Cheng Pow at MYR0.80 apiece. Tan Sri Lim is a substantial
shareholder and Managing Director of Gula Perak. This offer is
conditional upon a satisfactory due diligence report on Gula
Perak being carried out. The materialization of this transaction
may result in the emergence of a new controlling shareholder for
Gula Perak, and possibly the exit of the Lim family from the
Group.

The Group's MYR288.82 million Redeemable Convertible Secured
Notes (2003/2008) (RCSN) currently carries a rating of C2(s)
from RAM, with a negative outlook. The rating is premised on the
Group's weak business and financial profiles.

Of immediate concern are the Group's interest payments
(approximately MYR8 million) due in the next 12 months and the
redemption of its MYR90.12 million Redeemable Secured Bonds
2000/2005, which will mature on Dec. 18, 2005. Under the Trust
Deed for the RCSN, failure to pay interest and principal on its
other loans will trigger a cross-default.

Nonetheless, the possible change in the major shareholder of
Gula Perak, if the transaction materializes, has no immediate
impact on the current credit profile of the Group, which remains
fragile at this juncture.

RAM will continue to monitor and evaluate further developments
and their possible impact on the rating of Gula Perak.

CAMP JOHN: Claims BCDA is Harassing Locators
--------------------------------------------
Camp John Hay Development Corp. (CJHDevCo) alleged that the
Bases Conversion Development Authority has been harassing
locators in Camp John Hay, BusinessWorld reveals.

CJHDevCo labeled as harassment a move by BCDA, through its local
subsidiary John Hay Management Corp. (JHMC), asking Camp John
Hay sublocators to redirect their rental payments to the
government instead of paying CJHDevCo, the operator and
developer of John Hay.

"This is harassment, pure and simple. BCDA must have realized
that CJH DevCo is not giving in to their threats of an illegal
takeover, so now they have taken on innocent investors," CJH
DevCo spokeswoman Georgina A. Alvarez said.

The latest demand by BCDA has caused sublocators to fear that
the dispute between the two parties could have a negative impact
on their business. Many are confused as to how to answer BCDA,
and have brought their concern to CJHDevCo.

METRO PACIFIC: Parent Eyes Tollway Firm Stake
---------------------------------------------
First Pacific Co., through its local unit Metro Pacific Corp.,
wants to acquire a controlling stake in a Company that runs an
expressway in Luzon, The Philippine Star reports.

Hong Kong-based First Pacific has offered to pay around US$40
million for First Pacific Holdings Corporation's 51-percent
stake in First Philippine Infrastructure Development Corp.
(PIDC).

PIDC is the majority shareholder of Manila North Tollway Corp.,
which in turn holds the 25-year franchise to operate the North
Luzon Expressway.

First Holdings, however, turned down the offer because it was
too low. The firm claimed the 51-percent stake is worth at least
US$200 million.

It is still unclear if both parties will continue to negotiate.

NATIONAL RAILWAYS: Told to Overhaul Operations
----------------------------------------------
The ailing Philippine National Railways (PNR) has been ordered
to revamp its operations and finances to make it financially
independent from the national government, according to The
Manila Bulletin.

Finance Secretary Cesar Purisima urged PNR to restructure their
operations and reformulate their rates so it will be able to pay
up their borrowings with their own income stream. Just recently,
the national government extended Php220 million to PNR to
service its maturing debts.

These obligations include loans from the Japan Bank
International Corp. worth Php138 million and another Php45
million from the Export Finance Insurance Corp.

PNR, a state-owned railway firm under the Department of
Transportation and Communication, is one of the four state-run
corporations considered as the biggest revenue-draining burden

PHILIPPINE NICKEL: Gov't Seeks Settlement to Draw in Investors
--------------------------------------------------------------
The government is looking at an out-of-court settlement with
Philippine Nickel Co. (Philnico) relating to some US$300-million
worth of receivables from the sale of Nonoc mines, The
Philippine Star reports.

The deal, which would include a restructured settlement schedule
and debt-for-equity swap, is expected to pave the way for the
entry of the group of Chinese investors.

The Chinese consortium led by Non-Ferrous Metals Corp. and
Shanghai Bao Steel Corp. has earlier hinted on its intention to
invest around US$1 billion in Philnico's Nonoc mines.

Jinchuan has been reportedly interested in Nonoc mines for
years. The Jinchuan Group inked a memorandum of understanding
during the recent state visit of Chinese Prime Minister Hu
Jintao in April.

Philnico bought Nonoc mines from the government but finance
officials said it has not been able to pay for this acquisition
since it bought the mine and the nickel processing plant in
Nonoc Island, Surigao City.


PRICESMART INCORPORATED: Shareholders Ask Court to Bar Execs
------------------------------------------------------------
The minority stock holders of PriceSmart Incorporated's local
unit, PSMT Philippines, has urged a court to issue an injunction
against the firm's top officials over allegations of illegal
disbursements, according to The Manila Times.

The group, led by PSMT Chairman William S. Go lodged a fresh
appeal before the Pasig Regional Trial Court to halt illegal
release of company funds by PriceSmart-appointed executives
including PSMT President Benjamin Woods, PSMT Vice President
Robert Gans, chief financial officer John Heffner and former
treasurer James Cahill.

Mr. Go and E-Class Corp., who jointly own 38 percent of PSMT,
alleged that the four executives participated in a scheme of
siphoning PSMT Philippines' funds by making illegal and
unexplained disbursements to Pricesmart, in the amount of at
least Php500 million.

The minority shareholders warned that if the court fails to
issue the injunction on time, there may not be enough funds left
in PSMT Philippines, resulting in the loss of at least 400 jobs.

Based on unaudited figures, PSMT booked a net income of Php9.87
million during its first year of operation. Profits, however,
dropped to Php1.3 million in 2002 before turning into Php349.9
million in losses in 2003.

* PSE Unveils Firms Under Trade Suspension
------------------------------------------
In a bid to enhance transparency in the stock market, the
Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE) has started publishing the names
of firms that are either under trading suspension due to
violation of disclosure rules or are undergoing corporate
rehabilitation or suspension of payments.

PSE's latest move aims to further protect investor interest,
while encouraging listed companies to strictly comply with the
rules of both the PSE and the Securities and Exchange Commission
(SEC).

The names of the companies will be included in the PSE's daily
quotation report and will be classified either under trading
suspension or under corporate rehabilitation and/or suspension
of payments.

The PSE places companies in violation of its disclosure
requirements under trading suspension. Companies under corporate
rehabilitation are those whose assets may or may not be
sufficient to cover their liabilities but have petitioned the
courts to be rehabilitated.

Those firms who suspend debt payments, meanwhile, possess
sufficient property to cover their debts but anticipate the
impossibility of meeting them when they fall due.

The PSE cited the following companies are under suspension: AGP
Industrial Corp., Banco Filipino Savings and Mortgage Bank,
Benguet Corp., City Resources (Phils.) Corp., Fil-Estate Corp.,
Filsyn Corp., Lodestar Investment Holdings Corp., Metro Alliance
Holdings & Equities Corp., Mondragon International Philippines,
Inc., Philippine Telegraph & Telephone Corp., Primetown Property
Group, Inc., Sanitary Wares Manufacturing Corp., UEM Development
Phils., Inc. (formerly Mankayan Minerals Devt Co., Inc.), Unioil
Resources & Holdings Co., Inc., Universal Rightfield Property
Holdings, Inc., Victorias Milling Co., Inc., Wellex Industries,
Inc., and Wise Holdings, Inc.

Companies under rehabilitation and/or suspension of payments
are: Philippine Realty & Holdings Corp., Primetown Property
Group, Inc., Pryce Corp., Universal Rightfield Property
Holdings, Inc., Uniwide Holdings, Inc., and Victorias Milling
Co., Inc.

Currently, names of companies under trading suspension are
posted on the PSE website (http://www.pse.org.ph).

---------------------------------------------
Ocean Sky International Ltd informed the Singapore Stock
Exchange (SGX) that its wholly owned dormant subsidiary, ATS

CHARTERED SEMICONDUCTOR: Strengthens Ties with IBM, Samsung
-----------------------------------------------------------
IBM, Chartered Semiconductor Manufacturing and Samsung
Electronics Co. Ltd. advised the Singapore Stock Exchange (SGX)
that they are jointly developing design kits for the 65-
nanometer (nm) base and low-power processes.

The agreement further reinforces the commitment to the common
platform to enable design support for the jointly developed 65nm
process technologies and enhance sourcing flexibility for 65nm
customers.

Specifically, IBM, Chartered and Samsung will offer 65nm
designers common design kits that consist of physical
verification (design rule checking (DRC) and layout versus
schematic (LVS) matching) and parasitic extraction (RCX)
technology files.

Additionally, the companies will also make available common SRAM
kits for single- and dual-port memories, eFUSE kit and
electrostatic discharge (ESD) kit. These initial design kits
have been validated using a test chip, which further
demonstrates their capabilities for realizing fast and silicon
accurate 65nm designs.

"Extending our collaboration from technology development to
design enablement development, IBM, Chartered and Samsung are
accelerating efforts to enable a comprehensive ecosystem of
design support around the 65nm technology platform," said Steve
Longoria, vice president, Semiconductor Technology Platform for
IBM.

"This model of true collaboration and open design differentiates
the common platform and provides customers cutting-edge
technology, enhanced design portability, and multi-sourcing
flexibility."

"At 65nm, IBM, Chartered and Samsung have taken steps to define
and develop process optimized solutions in tandem with the
design community," said Kevin Meyer, vice president of worldwide
marketing at Chartered. "The customer benefits are the early
availability of manufacturing-aware design solutions tuned for
enabling the manufacturability of 65nm designs."

"Combining our efforts with IBM and Chartered at 65nm will
result in a very compelling solution that is the base for a
unique compatibility in the industry," said KP Suh, Executive
Vice President of Technology Development at Samsung. "This
strategy also significantly expands the expertise required by
our internal users and external customers to address the complex
design requirements for a range of cutting-edge system-on-chip
products."

CHINA AVIATION (S): Former Chief May be Prosecuted
--------------------------------------------------
China Aviation Oil (Singapore) Corporation Ltd informed the
Singapore Stock Exchange (SGX) that its suspended Chief
Executive Officer, Mr. Chen Jiulin, has been notified that he
may be prosecuted for a total of 15 offences under certain
provisions of the Companies Act, the Securities and Futures Act
and the Penal Code.

The Company understands that its Head of Finance Division, Mr.

prosecuted for certain offences. At the time of this

CHINA AVIATION (S): PwC Findings May be Used in Court
-----------------------------------------------------
Authorities in legal proceedings could use the findings of the
probe over China Aviation Oil (S) Corp. (CAO) that
PricewaterhouseCoopers recently released, Channel News Asia
reports.

Industry players said that probes such as the one done on CAO,
is usually conducted in such a way that the evidence could be
presented in a court of law.  The report released last Friday
placed most of the blame to CAO's former chief executive Chen
Jiu-Lin.

The Association of Certified Fraud Examiners (ACFE) president
Ethan Ong said: "Our job is to gather all the relevant
information in a form that is easily understandable by the
police, and the evidence is properly preserved such that it can
be used in the court of law should the need be required.

"Once it's established that we have sufficient evidence that a
fraud has occurred, we would pass the evidence we have gathered,
the work we have done, to the police."

According to PwC, the investigation entailed a lot of
conditions.  PwC has limited powers and could not force
individuals to do interviews against their wishes.

The investigators were also restricted to access documents in
the possession of third parties. And PwC added that it did not
have the power to take evidence under oath.

However, the release of the report prompted calls to take action
against parties that are found to have contributed to CAO's
collapse.

September 13, 2004 and September 29, 2004 between the Company
and Satya Capital, in respect of the acquisition of 88,000,000

THAI PETROCHEMICAL: CITIC Due Diligence May Stall
-------------------------------------------------
The Plan Administrators of Thai Petrochemical Industry PCL (TPI)
gained the agreement of the Central Bankruptcy Court to consider
a petition to block a due diligence on the company by China
International Trust and Investment Corp. (CITIC), relates
Bangkok Post.

The Central Bankruptcy Court will rule on the petition on June
27.

The petition states that TPI founder Prachai Leophairatana
submitted a letter to the plan administrator asking for
permission to allow CITIC and law firm Siam Premier to audit
TPI's financial records.

The plan administrators believe that the due diligence
proceeding would disrupt TPI's operations, and challenged Mr.
Prachai's authority to direct TPI executives to co-operate with
outside parties.

Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra is also not supportive of Mr.
Prachai's plan because it would only bring about changes in
TPI's debt-restructuring process, which the Prime Minister does
not want.

The Prime Minister will also try to persuade CITIC on his visit
to China from June 28 until July 1 not to forego with Mr.
Prachai's plans.  The Prime Minister is set for China to
celebrate 30 years of the Thai-Chinese relationship.

Earlier, CITIC announced in a filing to the Hong Kong Stock
Exchange, that it has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding
with Mr. Prachai and other Leophairatana family members to form
a new joint venture to purchase the 75 percent stake of TPI held
by creditors.  CITIC cited that it is willing to arrange
financing of $900 million to purchase the shares and another
$1.8 billion to refinance existing debt.

The Finance Ministry opposed of Mr. Prachai's plan to overthrow
the current debt-restructuring plan.  It said that it remains
committed to the existing plan that calls for PTT Plc, the
Government Savings Bank, the Government Pension Fund and the
Vayupak Fund to purchase a 61.5 percent stake in TPI as part of
the float of 17.55 billion new and existing shares.

On June 1, the Finance Ministry has signed a preliminary
agreement for the share purchase. Payment and final transfer is
expected to materialize within the next several months.
