ANVIL MINING: Plans To Defend Chemaf
------------------------------------
Anvil Mining Limited has been advised that a Company operating
in the Congo Copperbelt, Chemaf sprl has initiated proceedings
in the Tribunal de Grande Instance de Lubumbashi (Court) against
Societe Miniere Kolwezi sprl (SMK), Emiko sprl and Anvil Mining
Congo SARL.

The proceedings allege that Chemaf sprl had acquired 55% of the
shares in SMK pursuant to a sales contract entered into in 2003
with Emiko.

In December 2004, Anvil Mining Limited purchased an 87.5%
interest in Emiko which in turn owns an 80% interest in SMK,
with Gecamines holding the remaining 20%. This is referred to as
the Mutoshi Joint Venture. The purchase of these interests was
concluded during the second half of 2004 with all the necessary
approvals being obtained from Gecamines, SMK, Emiko and the
Minister of Mines.

Anvil believes that the claim is without foundation and disputes
the allegations. The matter is expected to be concluded in the
Lubumbashi Court within a short period of time, following
written submissions from all parties mentioned in the action.
Gecamines has also been requested to make a submission to the
Court.

AUSTRALIAN BROADCASTING: Needs Funds to Rescue Programs
-------------------------------------------------------
Ailing Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) said it badly
needs funds for its original programs in order to survive, Asia
Pulse says.

ABC managing director Russell Balding urged the federal
government to break the pattern, which has seen the ABC's past
five budget proposals being trimmed.

Mr. Balding claimed that ABC was "seriously under threat",
saying technology is changing how Australians receive news
entertainment. He said that broadband internet and new mobile
phone-based services taking broadcast media away from
traditional television and radio platforms.

He added that funding to provide original programs is more
important than new technology in ensuring ABC's survival.

At each of the five triennial funding submissions made since the
three-year system was introduced in 1988, the ABC had additional
funding requests refused.

Mr. Balding said the ABC was "willing to work with government"
in its next funding submission, due toward the end of the year.

While he did not go into detail on the upcoming submission, he
indicated it would focus on efficiency compared with commercial
competitors, saying the ABC provided its radio, television and
online services for about two thirds of what the Nine Network
spends on television services.

BUSINESS AUSTRALIA: Creditors Opt to Wind Up Affiliate
------------------------------------------------------
Creditors of finance firm Business Australia Capital Mortgage
(BACM), an affiliate of failed Business Australia Corporate
Finance (BACF), voted on June 14 to appoint Armstrong Wily as
liquidators, The Australian reveals.

BACM's liquidation came after the winding up of two BACF-
affiliated firms, Bondedge and BACF Investments.

BACF is under investigation by the Australian Securities and
Investments Commission (ASIC) for operating two unregistered
managed investment schemes, namely the BACF Unit Trust and the
BACF Investment Unit Trust.

The administrator's report says it is not possible to state the
financial position of BACM, but the company had net assets of
AU$6.9 million as at June 1, 2005.

The administrator's report also noted unsecured creditors claims
of AU$4.7 million and claims by the trust's unitholders of
AU$11.2 million, in the form of investor funds lent to borrowers
and recorded on the company balance sheet.

Background

Managed investment schemes with more than 20 members are
required to be registered under section 601EB of the
Corporations Act 2001 (the Act). ASIC may apply to the court to
wind up an unregistered managed investment scheme under section
601EE of the Act.

In its application to the court, ASIC alleged that:

The BACF Unit Trust and the BACF Investment Unit Trust were
unregistered managed investment schemes;

Bondedge Pty Ltd operated the unit trust known as the BACF Unit
Trust and BACF Investments Pty Ltd operated the unit trust known
as the BACF Investment Unit Trust in contravention of the
management scheme provisions of the Act.

JAMES HARDIE: Secures New Debt Facilities
-----------------------------------------
James Hardie Industries on Friday announced that it has entered
into new unsecured debt facilities totaling US$355 million.

The new debt facilities are revolving U.S. dollar cash advance
facilities involving bilateral agreements with six banks, and
will replace the Company's previous revolving and stand-by
credit facilities of approximately US$286 million.

Each of the new facilities is for an initial term of 364 days.
Upon satisfaction of certain conditions, including shareholder
approval of the Company's proposed voluntary loing-term funding
arrangement for proven asbestos claims against certain former
Australian subsidiary Companies, two-thirds of the aggregate
facilities will convert to a term of 5 years from signing date
and one-third will remain as extendable 364-day facilities. The
facilities are available for general corporate purposes.

The interest rate for each facility is the London Inter-Bank
Offered rate (LIBOR) for US dollar deposits, plus a margin.

James Hardie's CEO, Louis Gries said, "The new debt facilities
provide the Company with increased financial flexibility and
position the Company well for its future initiatives.

"It is both pleasing and an indication of the financial strength
and growth prospects of the Company that we have been able to
obtain these new facilities on similar terms to our previous
facilities, Mr. Gries said.

MAYNE GROUP: To Go Ahead with Demerger
--------------------------------------
The Board of Mayne Group Limited has decided to proceed with a
demerger involving separate Australian listings of its global
injectable pharmaceutical business and its domestic healthcare
businesses, reveals Egoli News.

The pharmaceuticals and diagnostics firm has decided to split
its core businesses, in order to enable the separate operations
to focus on their core activities and more effectively implement
distinctive strategies.

Reuters reported that Mayne, which has a current market
capitalization of AU$2.9 billion (US$2.2 billion), considered
the demerger as the firm's best opportunity to boost shareholder
value.

The move is aimed to pacify irate shareholders who have been
disappointed by the group's underperformance against its rivals
ever since it acquired F.H. Faulding drug and pharmacy business
in 2001 for AU$2.5 billion.

Demerging means that investors will be able to focus their
investments depending on the characteristics of each business
that best meet their needs.

Upon completion of the demerger process, current Mayne chairman
Peter Wilcox will become chairman of Mayne pharma and Mayne
director Paul McClintock will become chairman of the domestic
healthcare business.

A Mayne spokesman said the recruitment process for chief
executive officers of both businesses was under way.

Mayne was currently assessing the value of each of the entities
to be demerged. The company also had to sort through taxation,
legal and accounting issues as well as the physical separation
of the businesses.

Morgan Stanley and Clayton Utz are the official advisers on the
demerger.

About Mayne Group Limited

Mayne Group Limited is a leading Australian-based healthcare
Company with revenues in excess of AU$4 billion in its 2004
financial year.

Mayne Group is comprised of several lading Australian healthcare
businesses that are well positioned to grow in future years.
Mayne Diagnostice Services operates the second largest pathology
and diagnostic imaging networks in Australia. Mayne Pharmacy
distributes pharmaceutical and over the counter products to
retail pharmacies in better managing their businesses.

Mayne Pharma has grown to be a market leader for generic,
injectable oncology drugs in Western Europe, Canada and
Australia and has established businesses in the United States,
the Middle East and Africa, and Asia. Mayne Pharma's products
are marketed in more than 50 countries across five countries.
This broad geographic sales, marketing and regulatory platform
in generic, injectable medicines is a valuable asset and Mayne
Pharma's emphasis on the cytotoxic oncology (anti-cancer) market
segment benefits from higher barriers to entry and lower
competition than in generic, oral pharmaceuticals.

SAM'S SEAFOOD: 70 People to Lose Jobs On Wholesale Biz Closure
--------------------------------------------------------------
Around 70 of Sam's Seafood's employees will lose their jobs as
soon as the failed seafood giant closes its wholesale division,
relates Asia Pulse.

Deloitte Partner John Greig said despite best efforts to keep
the Brisbane business in operation some of Sam's people will be
without a job at the end of the month after several interested
buyers failed to secure enough cash to satisfy the receivers.

The business was put up for sale last month, after Sam's Seafood
went into receivership owing creditors a reported AU$20 million
(US$15.34 million). The Company has also warned it would book a
AU$2 million ($US1.53 million) net loss for 2004/05, compared to
AU$2.5 million (US$1.92 million) net profit made the year
before.

The remaining retail and frozen operation businesses are
expected to stay open in the short term until an appropriate
offer is made.

The wholesale division will be closed down at the end of the
month, after the last of the remaining stock is sold.

A stock shortfall at Sam's main operating entity, Sam's Seafood
Hamilton Ltd, had reportedly hindered Mr. Greig's ability
continue to trade or restore the company back to a viable
business.

SECURIX CORPORATION: Disposes of IT Security Business
-----------------------------------------------------
Securix Corporation Limited (SXC) announced the sale of its IT
security business by its fully owned subsidiary Securix
Australia Pty Ltd to Classic Blue Solutions Pty Ltd for
AU$865,000.

SXC does not anticipate that this sale will have a material
impact on it's consolidated profit and loss due in part to the
write downs of inter-company balances and asset carrying values
already taken up in previous accounting periods.

Whilst still convinced of its longer term potential, SXC came to
the conclusion that it was not able to continue to fund the
turnaround of the Securix Australia business which has been cash
negative and accordingly has taken the decision to divest of the
business in a transaction whereby the key consideration was that
the staff and customers of Securix Australia experience minimal
disruption.

SXC's CEO Chris Teoh said, "While I do not personally think that
the sale price is reflective of the longer term potential of the
business, nonetheless, I think this is a positive outcome for
SXC and the Securix business. Because much of what Securix does
has an impact on the key business processes of our customers, we
did not cause unwarranted disruption to our customers. Any such
disruption could have resulted in claims against the business
and SXC. I believe that Classic Blue will do very well with the
IT security business and take it to the next level of its
growth."

"Securix Australia Pty Ltd, the SXC subsidiary which actually
held the IT security business will be placed into voluntary
administration following the sale. SXC will work with the
administrator to maximize the return to all creditors from the
sale proceeds."

"We are obviously disappointed to divest of a business into
which we have put so much time and resources but the parent
Company, SXC, now has a simpler strategy focused around growing
our Virtualplus business. Virtualplus operates in the unified
messaging and mobile content distribution business. It is
profitable and has been so for over 4 years. The current
estimate of earnings before interest and tax for the 2006
financial year is in excess of AU$1 million. The content
distribution space is hotting up and is a high growth and high
margin business at the current time. With industry analysts
predicting rapid expansion in the 3G, SMS and MMS markets, we
are well placed to take advantage of that growth."

"SXC is in the advanced stages of negotiations with its note
holders to rollover its outstanding notes which fall due this
month. The Board is currently considering its options with

BANK OF CHINA: Adheres to Strict Accountability Scheme
------------------------------------------------------
The Bank of China (BOC) will adhere to a stern accountability
system to ensure the effectiveness of its internal control
mechanism, China Daily reports, citing bank spokesman Wang
Zhaowen.

Managers will be held accountable if major criminal cases occur
at their work units, or if they cannot take measures to close
loopholes in their internal control mechanism.

The bank won a US$22.5 billion capital injection from the State
in December 2003. It was chosen by the central government as a
pilot as part of shareholding reforms.

The bank, which reorganized itself into a joint-stock firm last
August, is busy preparing for a final initial public offering
(IPO).

BOC posted an operating profit of CNY57.8 billion (US$7 billion)
in 2004.

BANK OF COMMUNICATIONS: IPO Attracts HK$110-Mln Orders
------------------------------------------------------
The initial public offering (IPO) of the Bank of Communications
(BoCom), which closed on Thursday, attracted orders for more
than HK$110 billion, or an over subscription of at least 150
times, The Standard reports.

The bank plans to raise HK$14.9 billion from the sale, and the
heavy demand makes it all but certain the shares will be priced
at the top of the range of HK$1.95 to HK$2.55 apiece.

The strong demand for BoCom can partly be traced to the implicit
seal of approval HSBC Holdings bestowed on the mainland bank
when it paid US$1.75 billion (HK$13.65 billion) for a 19.89
percent stake in 2004.

To maintain its percentage stake, HSBC will pay as much as
HK$2.97 billion to purchase more shares in the IPO. The London-
based bank has an option to increase its stake further, subject
to regulatory approval, after 2008.

The price range values BOC at 1.3 to 1.6 times its estimated
2005 book value, or 11.1 to 14.5 times its profit for this year,
which is forecast to be at least CNY7.87 billion (HK$7.39
billion), almost five times last year's earnings.

CHINA CONSTRUCTION: Signs Acquisition Deal With Bank of America
---------------------------------------------------------------
China Construction Bank (CCB) and Bank of America on Friday
announced the signing of a definitive agreement for Bank of
America to invest an initial US$3 billion in CCB through a
US$2.5 billion pre-IPO purchase of existing shares from the
largest shareholder China SAFE Investments Ltd. (Huijin) and a
further US$500 million investment at CCB's planned international
IPO.

Bank of America will also have an option to purchase additional
shares in the future to increase its ownership in CCB up to
19.9%. This transaction represents the largest single foreign
investment in a Chinese company to date.

As part of the transaction, CCB and Bank of America have entered
into separate agreements for Bank of America to provide
strategic assistance to CCB in the areas of corporate
governance, risk management, IT, financial management, human
resource management, retail banking (including credit card), and
global treasury services. As part of this strategic assistance
program, Bank of America will provide approximately 50 personnel
to advise CCB in these key areas. Bank of America will also have
a seat on CCB's board of directors.

China Construction Bank is one of the largest commercial banks
in China with total assets of approximately RMB 3,910 billion at
the end of 2004. CCB achieved strong profitability and asset
quality measures in 2004. With the Bank of America partnership,
CCB becomes the first of China's "Big Four" banks to reach an
agreement with a foreign strategic investor, achieving a
significant milestone in its transformation.

Guo Shuqing, Chairman of China Construction Bank, said, "We are
very pleased to have Bank of America, one of the world's
largest, most successful and respected financial institutions,
as our strategic partner. I firmly believe this is a win-win
partnership. The most fundamental and challenging task in
transforming CCB is to establish a culture that is customer
centric and market driven. Our goal is to provide the best
service to our customers. We have much to learn from our partner
in serving customers and creating shareholder value. This is the
core of our comprehensive cooperation."

Chang Zhenming, President of China Construction Bank, added,
"Bank of America is the ideal strategic partner for us. We have
built a leading corporate banking business and a large retail
banking branch network in China. Bank of America has
demonstrated its expertise in managing the largest retail branch
network in the United States and in maximizing product sales
while maintaining a strong asset quality. Their experience and
skills will be very valuable to us in our building an
internationally competitive modern commercial bank."

"This investment is aimed at creating a long-term benefit by
partnering with the best positioned bank in China, one of the
fastest growing economies in the world with 1.3 billion
consumers," said Kenneth D. Lewis, Bank of America chairman and
chief executive officer. "China Construction Bank has undergone
an impressive transformation in the last several years. They
have built a leading franchise in China, and we see value in
combining their local knowledge and distribution with our
product expertise, technology and experience with size and
scale. Under our agreement, we will offer CCB the benefit of our
experience in such areas as governance, risk management, credit
cards, consumer banking and treasury services."

China Construction Bank and Huijin were advised in this
transaction by Morgan Stanley and China International Capital
Corporation.

CHINA CONSTRUCTION: Releases FY/2004 Financial Results
------------------------------------------------------
China Construction Bank Corporation (CCB) has released the first
annual report to the public after its incorporation. The
accounting policies introduced by CCB in the financial
statements of the annual report 2004 and 2003 are based on the
Accounting Standards for Business Enterprises, the Accounting
Regulations for Financial Enterprises issued by the Ministry of
Finance (MOF) (in 2001) and other relevant regulations. KPMG
Huazhen, who has issued a standard and unqualified auditor's
report, has audited the financial statements.

The annual report discloses that in 2004 when CCB recognized the
strategic opportunity to focus on the shareholding restructuring
program in line with the requirement of building up a mechanism
of the modern financial institution, CCB, in response to the
national macro control policy, took great efforts in
strengthening risk management and internal control, improving
asset quality, progressively facilitating system changes and
mechanism transformation, and strengthening scientific
management and administration to reduce non-performing assets,
expand service scope and improve service quality, promote the
advance of technologies and financial innovation and explore the
market. In this way, all business lines of CCB experienced a
rapid development and asset quality and operational efficiency
were further enhanced resulting in record highs in key
performance indicators.

CCB Annual Report 2004 shows that in 2004, CCB realized profit
before tax of RMB 50,216 million, an increase of RMB 12,743
million or 34.0% over the previous year. Of this, the net
interest income was RMB 100,296 million, an increase of RMB
11,349 million over the previous year. Provision for impairment
losses was RMB 8,830 million, an increase of RMB 661 million
over the previous year. And return on asset was 1.30% and return
on capital was 25.40%.

Excluding the impact of income tax exemption received, as part
of the shareholding-restructuring program, return on asset and
return on capital were 0.88% and 17.28% respectively. Based on
effective cost cutting measures, the cost to income ratio was
lowered to 39.17%, a decrease of 1.97 percentage points compared
to the previous year. At the end of 2004, the capital adequacy
ratio was strengthened to 11.29%, and non-performing loan ratio
was lowered to 3.92%. These data indicate that the key
performance indicators of CCB in 2004 have ranked upper middle
position amongst the international 100 large banks.

In 2004, CCB is based on the shareholding restructuring program
throughout the whole bank to speed up the restructuring of the
system and mechanism to ensure the successful completion of
CCB's objective in this period. The capital base, asset quality
and financial condition have been improved dramatically by means
of financial restructuring measures and competent legal
procedures such as dissolving non-performing loans and asset
loss, classifying asset quality and introducing promoters and
shareholders after the national capital injection.

Since the incorporation of China Construction Bank Corporation
in September of 2004, in accordance with competent rules and
regulations, CCB has held Shareholders General Meetings, formed
a Board of Directors and a Board of Supervisors, and appointed
the senior management. CCB also established several Board
Committees, including a Strategy and Nomination Committee, an
Audit Committee, a Risk Management Committee, Compensation and
Evaluation Committee and a Related Party Transactions Committee.
CCB has framed related articles and detailed implementation
procedures in response to the corporate governance structure.
CCB Shareholders General Meeting, Board of Directors, Board of
Supervisors and the senior management have started to conduct
operations effectively. CCB has established a sound and
efficient structure for policymaking, enforcement and oversight,
ensuring that effective checks and balances are in place between
the supervisory levels.

While establishing the modern corporate governance structure,
CCB has remained focus on strengthening the internal control and
risk management. Incorporating modern techniques and measures,
such as standardized credit risk ratings based on geographical
regions, industries and customer types, enhanced the Credit Risk
Rating and Early Warning System. And CCB became the first bank
amongst domestic commercial banks to establish an economic
capital driven risk and reward performance system and further
improve the economic capital budgeting and the performance
assessment and incentive system.

In 2004, CCB deposit business maintained a rapid growth and
loans enjoyed a proper increase. Deposits increased by RMB
295,258 million or 9.2% compared to the previous year. Loans
increased by RMB 229,595 million, an increase of 11.5%, and
mainly went to personal housing, infrastructure construction and
discounting products that have the characteristic of low risks.
While maintaining the leading market positions in core products,
CCB was active in exploiting new market opportunities, such as
developing strategic businesses, including bank cards, foreign
exchange, and electronic banking services with considerable
success. CCB also sustained the rapid growth experienced in our
intermediary services with an increase of 39.0% in terms of net
income of fees over the previous year.

CCB demonstrated its commitment to continuous product innovation
with the launch of a number of new products, such as the pilot
launch of the ­øHappy Investor' wealth management card and the
bank-wide unified brand for foreign exchange structured deposit
products, Profit from Exchange. CCB became the first domestic
commercial bank to launch an independent custodial banking
system for securities settlement funds as part of our custodial
services.

Meanwhile, the annual report 2004 of CCB nearly meets the
requirement for listed companies with regard to its format and
content. And the level of transparency in the information
disclosure has been improved and increased considerably.

As to the deferring of its disclosure over the annual report
2004, an insider said CCB had received the approval from
competent authorities. 2004 is a special year for CCB that
experienced the separation, the incorporation, the financial
restructuring, external auditing, and changes within the bank in
terms of organizational structure and administration. In
particular CCB engaged in the reform of financial policies and
needed to receive the approval from competent government
authorities. All CCB businesses shall be conducted strictly in
accordance with its Articles of Association and relevant rules
and regulations.

There are some new issues and conditions that have no suit to be
followed by commercial banks and need time to find solutions.
This insider also said, in accordance with competent rules and
regulations, CCB will continue to release its information in
time so that all shareholders interests can be guaranteed.

This is a company press release.


CHINA CONSTRUCTION: Unveils Shareholders' Meeting Results
---------------------------------------------------------
Recently China Construction Bank Corporation held the 2004
shareholders' meeting in Shanghai which was attended by
representatives of its five shareholders including the Central
Huijin Investment Company, China Jianyin Investment Limited,
State Grid, Shanghai Bao Steel (Group) Co., Ltd. and China
Yangtze Power Co., Ltd., all the members of its Board of
Directors (BOD) and Board of Supervisors (BOS), secretary of the
BOD and representatives of the regulatory authorities and
intermediary organizations.

At the meeting participants discussed the work reports of the
BOD and the BOS, passed the 2004 financial statements and profit
distribution plan, the annual report and the 2005 budget plan
and deliberated on the topics including the revision of the
Articles of Association and the appointment of accounting firm
for the year 2005.

At the meeting it is noted that since the establishment of China
Construction Bank Corporation in September last year, the
corporation's BOD, senior management and BOS have faithfully
implemented the central government's arrangement on the
shareholding reform of state-owned commercial banks, carefully
executed the decisions of the shareholders' meeting, accelerated
the institutional reform and transformation, established the new
corporate governance structure composed of the shareholders­_
meeting, the BOD, the management and the BOS, formulated the
corporate governance documents based on the Articles of
Association, basically developed the governance structure of
check and balance among the authority body, decision-making
body, operational body and supervisory body and made their due
efforts to speed up the shareholding reform, implement the
development strategies, strengthen risk management, improve
asset quality, stimulate business innovation, improve customer
services and raise business performance.

In 2004, the overall business performance of the corporation was
sound, its asset and liability business grew steadily, asset
quality was improved greatly, profit was increased considerably
and major financial indexes grew continuously, meeting the
requirements of the China Banking Regulatory Commission (CBRC)
on the shareholding reform of CCB and creating values for the
shareholders. The meeting fully recognizes the work of the BOD
and the BOS since their establishment and expresses satisfaction
at the diligence of and faithful fulfillment of duties by the
corporation's management and employees.

At the meeting it was stressed that since the corporate
governance structure is newly established the functions of the
BOD, the senior management and the BOS have yet to be clearly
defined and the coordination, support and supervision mechanisms
to be strengthened. The risk management and internal control
capacities of the corporation need to be reinforced and all of
its business units and employees should further build the
"customer-tailored and market-oriented" operational philosophy
of commercial bank. The organizational structure, service
strategies, product innovation, process design and technological
support of the corporation should be further consolidated in a
bid to better meet the needs of development and cope with the
competition.

The participants make it clear that 2005 is a critical year for
advancing the shareholding reform, trying to launch the IPO and
accelerating the implementation of the new development
strategies and business growth. The meeting requires the BOD,
the senior management and the BOS coordinate closely and work
jointly to realize the annual business objectives and create
sound return for the shareholders as required by the
shareholding reform and development strategies. Efforts should
be made to improve the corporate governance structure, establish
and improve the institutional systems in compliance with the
modern corporate governance, reinforce the risk management and
internal control and set up the accountability and incentive
systems for the senior executives.

In 2005 the risk management will give top priority to continuing
to enhance the asset quality and preventing the operational
risks, and the risk system reform and internal control system
construction will be sped up. With focus on customers and guided
by the market, the product and service innovation will be
accelerated and tangible efforts will be made to raise the
quality of differentiated services, enhance the core
competitiveness, push for the steady implementation of the
operational plan and realize the operational objectives.
Meanwhile, the strategic investors will be introduced, the
information disclosure system will be improved, the investor
relation's management will be enhanced and preparations will be
accelerated to try to realize the objective of IPO by the end of
the year.

Prior to the shareholders' meeting, the first BOD of the
corporation held the 9th meeting and carefully discussed the
revision of the Articles of Association, the appointment of the
accounting firm for 2005 and other topics.

This is a company press release.

BANK GLOBAL: Angry Depositors Detain BPKP Chair
-----------------------------------------------
State Development Comptroller (BPKP) Chairman Arie Soelendro was
held "hostage" by disgruntled depositors of the now-defunct Bank
Global inside the House of Representatives Thursday, reports The
Jakarta Post.

Enraged by the government's failure to return their money, some
500 former Bank Global depositors refused to let Mr. Arie leave
the meeting room. The group forced Mr. Arie to provide details
of BPKP's ongoing audit of Bank Global.

After being detained for about an hour in the room, Mr. Arie was
rescued from the angry depositors by dozens of House security
officers, who broke down the door of the room before ushering
Mr. Arie away, amid jeers and curses from the enraged
depositors.

The BPKP has been ordered by the government to take an inventory
of Bank Global's assets and depositor funds prior to the
repayment of these funds to eligible recipients.

The depositors claim that Bank Global's woes are the results of
the government's and the central bank's failure to properly
supervise the bank and prevent unscrupulous practices. Instead,
they protected the bank and put the public at risk.

The central bank officially shut down Bank Global on Jan. 13,

FUJI HEAVY: S&P Downgrades Rating to 'BB+'
------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services has lowered its long-term
credit rating on Fuji Heavy Industries Ltd. to 'BB+' from 'BBB-'
based on diminished prospects for a recovery in profitability
and cash flow over the near term along with intensifying
competition in the global auto industry. The outlook on the
rating is stable.

"Fuji Heavy's profitability and cash flow have weakened over the
past two years largely owing to its disappointing sales
performance, deterioration in model mix, and increasing
competitive pressures," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst
Chizuko Satsukawa.

"Fuji Heavy has a high dependence on a few vehicle models in its
relatively small automotive business, Subaru. This makes the
company's overall profitability highly dependent on the sales
performance of each model, as well as on new product launches,"
Ms. Satsukawa added.

In addition to weak sales overall, Fuji Heavy's profitability
has been negatively affected by erosion in its model mix, given
the greater proportion of lower-margin vehicles.

The prospects for improvement in profitability in the near term
are low as indicated by the company's downward revision of its
sales volume and profit targets in its midterm business plan to
March 2007.

While Fuji Heavy plans to launch a limited number of new models
and to perform major facelifts on its existing models over the
next few years, the aggressive introductions of new models
planned by competitors will pressure its ability to achieve
these targets and improve profitability as planned. To revive
profitability, Fuji Heavy intends to cut costs by coordinating
global purchasing with its 20 percent-owner General Motors Corp.
(BB/Negative/B-1), and restructure its product planning and
sales processes and networks.

Fuji Heavy remains vulnerable to foreign exchange rates because
of its relatively low overseas production and procurement. The
company plans to reduce its exposure to this risk by exporting
vehicles manufactured in the U.S. to Japan and Europe, but it is
uncertain if exports will reach sufficient volumes to constitute
a meaningful natural hedge. Moreover, depending on the sales
performance of a new SUV, production capacity at its vehicle
assembly plant in the U.S. may continue to be underutilized.

Profitability and cash flow are not likely to improve from
recent weak levels in the near term. Fuji Heavy's EBITDA margin
and ratio of funds from operations to total debt are expected to
remain below 10% and 25%, respectively. Despite the erosion, the
company is expected to maintain moderate financial leverage,
with a ratio of total debt to capital of approximately 37%
(calculated according to Standard & Poor's captive finance
methodology), given its relatively low capital investment plans
over the next few years.

The stable outlook is based on the expectation that Fuji Heavy
will be able to stop profitability and cash flow erosion in the
next few years, helped by various cost cutting measures and the
major facelift of the core Legacy model. In addition, the
company's relatively moderate financial leverage provides some
leeway at the revised rating level. If there are delays in
improving cash flow, leading to significantly increased debt
usage and considerable deterioration in cash flow protection
measures, the rating could be lowered further.

SANYO ELECTRIC: Launches New LCD Projector
------------------------------------------
Sanyo Electric's trio of new projectors -- the PLC-XU70, 73 and
76 -- all equipped with classroom friendly short throw
projection lenses are perfect units for the busy business or
academic presenter.

These sleek, look-alike, three panel LCD projectors have a wide
range of natural color saturation with true XGA (1024 by 768)
pixel resolution and they come with an increasing range of light
outputs.  End users can choose the unit that best fits their
situation -- the PLC-XU70 starts with 1500 ANSI lumens; the PLC-
XU73 does the midrange with 2000 ANSI lumens; and the PLC-XU76
hits the top of the line with 2500 ANSI lumens.  The light from
these units can either fill a big screen or light up a dark
black board using Sanyo's unique "Blackboard Mode" that
automatically adjusts the image's white balance and gamma
correction to project an intelligible image on just about any
surface, including dark surfaces with low reflection.

Sanyo also knows that busy presenters -- people on the run with
no time to spare -- sometimes need to plug in, project, present
and then unplug the projector just as quickly as they started.
Where other projectors make you wait for a lamp cool-down
period, Sanyo's new PLC-XU70, 73 and 76 do not. When you're
done, you can turn off, unplug and then run to the next meeting
or classroom with one of these ready-to-go, bright projectors
just as fast as you need to -- there is no need to wait -- all
without worrying about affecting the unit's lamp life time.

Along with their high color saturation, high contrast ratio and
great brightness, these three new projectors also come with one
of Sanyo's powerful image processing ICs for smooth, digital 3-2
pull down, progressive scan processing of video signals.  The
image processing IC in these three projectors makes entertaining
multimedia presentations a snap by accepting a wide range of
computer input signal sources from VGA to UXGA, as well as video
input sources from composite, S-Video and component (with
optional cable) to 1080i HDTV.  In addition, these new
projectors have a switchable, D-sub 15 analog I-O terminal
capable of receiving an additional input or driving an external
monitor or another projector.  The MSRP for the PLC-XU70 is
$2,495.00, the PLC-XU73 is $2,995.00 and the PLC-XU76 is
$3,495.00.  The projectors are available in August 2005.

DAEWOO GROUP: Court Orders Detention for Ex-boss
------------------------------------------------
The Seoul Central District Court has issued an order to detain
until July 5 the defamed founder of the failed Daewoo Group to
give prosecutors time to prepare an indictment, reports Agence
France Presse.

The 68-year-old Kim Woo-Choong, who gave himself up to the
authorities Tuesday upon his return to South Korea after six
years of fugitiveness, did not contest the ruling.

Senior judge Kim Jae-Hyup said Mr. Kim is expected to receive
harsh punishment considering the severe damage inflicted on the
national economy and his status and roles in the accounting
fraud case.

Prosecutors alleged Mr. Kim ordered his executives to inflate
the group's assets by KRW27 trillion (US$26.7 billion) between
1997 and 1998. He also allegedly borrowed KRW5.7 trillion from
financial institutions by presenting fraudulent account books
and letters of credit and smuggling one billion dollars
overseas.

Prosecution authorities plan to indict Kim early next month
after further questioning him as to whether he bribed
politicians and government officials to keep his failing group
afloat in the late 1990s.

Mr. Kim is likely to be placed in a detention center in southern
Seoul from where he will be taken daily to the downtown Supreme
Prosecutors' Office for questioning.


KOREA EXCHANGE: Fitch Upgrades Rating to 'BBB'
---------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings, the international rating agency, has on Friday
upgraded Korea Exchange Bank's ("KEB") Long-term rating to 'BBB'
with a Stable Outlook from 'BBB-' (BBB minus). Fitch has also
upgraded its Individual rating to 'C' from 'C/D' and Short-term
rating to 'F2' from 'F3'.

The agency's ratings on KEB's Lower Tier II subordinated debt
have also been raised by one notch to 'BB+' and 'BBB-' (BBB
minus). At the same time, the agency has also affirmed the
bank's Support rating at '2'.

The ratings upgrade reflects KEB's improved operating
performance, asset quality and capital position in 2004 and 1Q
2005. The ratings have been constrained by KEB's struggle with
the legacy of large bad corporate loans and credit card losses.

In 2004, despite sustained losses (KRW558.9 billion) from its
credit card division, KEB achieved a turnaround of KRW522.1bn in
net income with a 17.8% return on equity ("ROE") and a 0.84%
return on assets ("ROA"), compared to the KRW213.8bn in net
losses in 2003. One-off extraordinary items including the gains
from the sale of its US subsidiary, Pacific Union Bank
(KRW181bn) and the write-back of SK Network's reserves were
significant contributors to the improved profitability.
Excluding these, the underlying operating ROE would have been
7%.

KEB's 1Q05 earning results were better than expected, with the
bank achieving KRW326bn in net income and an annualised ROE of
38%, thanks to a turnaround in its credit card business which
contributed KRW71.8bn in quarterly income, the unit's first
quarterly profits since 1Q2002. The recovery of the KRW54bn in
loans to Dong-Ah Construction that were originally written-off,
also boosted its bottom line. Its NPL ratio improved to 1.70% at
March 2005 from 1.82% at end-04.

Amid lingering concern over the health of the Korean SMEs
lending, Fitch believes KEB is in a relatively better position
than other banks with less exposure to small domestic SMEs,
which have been more negatively affected by sluggish domestic
consumption.

KEB's weaker capital position has been one of major constraints
in its ratings. However, with improved profitability, its
capital ratio is on a rising trend, with a 9.85% CAR and 6.08%
Tier 1 ratio at March 2005, up from 9.47% and 5.51% respectively
at end-2004. In line with its expectation of KRW700bn in net
income in 2005 (a 20% ROE and 1.0% ROA), KEB targets a 10.4% CAR
and 6.5% Tier 1 ratio by end-2005. Although this is a
considerable improvement that supports the rating upgrade, in
Fitch's view, the bank should further improve its capital
position to achieve higher ratings.

Although KEB has not confirmed this, Lone Star, its controlling
shareholder, is likely to start negotiations with potential
buyers in the second half of 2005. However, Fitch does not view
this as a negative factor for the bank's ratings, as its stand-
alone credit profile is improving and would be further
strengthened if it is eventually acquired by an entity that has
a higher rating.

TRIGEM COMPUTER: Receivership Plan Gets Court Nod

rivals in the personal computer industry, sought court
receivership on May 18 due to severe cash shortage.

KRW1.17 trillion (US$1.15 billion). In the first quarter ended
March 31, TriGem reported a net loss of KRW2.9 billion on sales
of KRW368 billion, a 26 percent decline from a year earlier.

NORTH BORNEO: Prepares FS on Break-Up Basis
-------------------------------------------
On May 6, 2005, the Board of Directors of The North Borneo
Corporation Berhad advised Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad that
it would retract the audited financial statements that had been
submitted to Bursa Malaysia Securities Bhd (Bursa Securities) on
April 29, 2005.

The Company retracted the financial statements on May 10, 2005.

In the announcement dated May 6, 2005, the Board had stated that
the draft financial statements that had been deliberated by the
Board of Directors at its meeting on April 22, 2005 were then
not qualified by the auditors.

The Board wishes to inform that the said auditors' report
carried a "Subject to" opinion and the auditors advised that it
is a qualified opinion on that basis.

The signed auditors' report dated April 22, 2005 and furnished
to the Company on April 28, 2005 carried an adverse opinion.

In light of the adverse opinion, the Board retracted the
financial statements and proceeded to prepare the accounts on a
break-up basis.

The Board now announces that the restated financial statements
have been prepared on the break-up basis, which the Board has
since approved as disclosed in the audited financial statements.

The auditors have since issued an unqualified report on the
reissued financial statements, although their report contains an
"Except for" opinion in respect of the registers of the Company
which have been retained by Securities Commission and are
therefore not kept at a location in accordance with the
requirements of the Companies Act, 1965.


RHB CAPITAL: Transfers Entire RHB International Interest
--------------------------------------------------------
RHB Capital announced to Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad that
with the transfer of the Company's entire shareholding of 30,000
ordinary shares of RM10.00 each (of which RM5.00 is partially
paid-up) in RHB International Trust (Labuan) Sdn Bhd (RHBITLSB)
to RHB International Trust (L) Ltd (RHBITLL)  (hereinafter
called the Share Transfer), in exchange for 19,999 ordinary
shares of USD4.00 each (of which USD2.00 is partially paid-up)
of RHBITLL (hereinafter called the Share Allotment), RHBITLSB
shall cease to be a direct wholly-owned subsidiary of RHB
Capital.

Prior to the Share Transfer, RHBITLSB and RHBITLL, which are
incorporated under the Companies Act, 1965 and Offshore
Companies Act 1990 respectively, are both the direct wholly-
owned subsidiaries of RHB Capital.

With the said Share Transfer, RHBITLSB will become a wholly
owned subsidiary of RHBITLL, which in turn is a wholly owned
subsidiary of RHB Capital.

Subsequent thereto, the nature of business for RHBITLSB will be
that of providing corporate secretarial services, corporate
resident directorship services, custodian services and other
related services.

The Share Transfer and Share Allotment are not expected to have
any material effect on the earnings or net tangible assets of
the RHB Capital Group for the financial year ending December 31,
2005.

None of the directors or substantial shareholders of RHB Capital
or persons connected to them has any interest, direct or
indirect, in the said Share Transfer and Share Allotment
thereto.

of Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad, we hereby announce that our
75% owned subsidiary, Transocean Biotec (M) Sdn Bhd (TBM) has
defaulted in repayment of banking facilities to its lender.

(1) Details of the Default

(1.1) On June 1, 2005, MBB issued a letter to TBM to recall all
its banking facilities granted to TBM and demand TBM for the
repayment of the following entire outstanding amounts owing to
MBB:

(i) Overdraft outstanding of MYR1,877,130.82 calculated as at
May 31, 2005 together with further interest thereon at Base
Lending Rate (BLR) + 1.75% per annum (p.a.) calculated from June

above the prescribed rate of interest will be imposed on the

(ii) Term Loan outstanding of MYR178,746.11 calculated as at May
31, 2005 together with further interest thereon at BLR + 1.75%
p.a. calculated from June 1, 2005 until full settlement. (BLR of
MBB as at June 1, 2005 was 6.00% p.a.) (penalty interest of 1.00
p.a. will be charged on any late payment of interest and/or
installment.)

(1.2) MBB has demanded the Total Outstanding Debts to be paid by
TBM to them within 14 days from the date of the MBB's letter
failing which, MBB shall commence legal proceedings against TBM
for the recovery of the Total Outstanding Debts.

(1.3) TBM had within the Prescribed Period, negotiated with MBB
and requested them for an extension of time for the settlement
of the Total Outstanding Debts by utilizing the balance of the
sale proceeds to be procured from the purchaser in relation to
the disposal of TBM's properties (which are currently being
charged to MBB for the above facilities) as stipulated in a
Sale and Purchase Agreement entered into by TBM on April 14,
2005, the details of which had been announced to the Exchange on
April 14, 2005 (General Announcement Reference No. CS-050414-
49592) (the Disposal).

The said balance of the sale proceeds amounting to
MYR3,333,170.39 is expected to be paid by the purchaser within 6
months from the date of the said Sale & Purchase Agreement with
an agreed extension of time of one month and upon the terms and
conditions thereon.

(1.4) At the lapse of the Prescribed Period, TBM had yet to
settle the Total Outstanding Debts as demanded by MBB.

(2) The reasons for the default in payments

(2.1) As disclosed in the said General Announcement, part of the
balance of the sale proceeds arising from the Disposal had been
earmarked for the settlement of the Total Outstanding Debts to
MBB.

However, as explained in paragraph 1.4 above, the said balance
of the sale proceeds will only be paid to TBM within 6 months

(3) The steps taken or proposed to be taken by the Group to
address the default in payments

(3.1) TBM will continue to negotiate with MBB for the said

LEPANTO CONSOLIDATED: DOLE Grants Wage Hike to Protesters
---------------------------------------------------------
The Department of Labor and Employment (DOLE) has granted the
striking workers of Lepanto Consolidated Mining Co. a daily wage
increase, in a bid to resolve the miner's labor issues, reports
The Philippine Daily Inquirer.

After a two-week strike at Lepanto's Benguet Mining site, the
DOLE finally approved the worker's petition although the amount
was lower than what the striking staff was demanding.

Labor Secretary Patricia Sto. Tomas granted the workers' daily
wage increases for the period of November 2004 to November 2007
worth Php25, Php27 and Php29 a day for the first, second and
third year, respectively.

The Lepanto Employees Union was demanding Php29 for the first
two years and Php33 in 2006, while the Lepanto Consolidated
Mining Corp. management wanted only Php21, Php26 and Php28 for
the three years.

According to The Manila Times, Lepanto's workers union staged a
strike on June 2 and barricaded the mine portals preventing
crewmembers from working in the mines. This was the second
strike attempt. An earlier strike fizzled out as Sto. Tomas
ordered the union to defer its protest action, pending the
resolution of the case.

Management and union were deadlocked in their negotiations for
their new collective bargaining agreement, leading to the latest
industrial action. The striking workers defied the return-to-
work order issued by DOLE on June 8.

Meanwhile, the government is banking on the revival of the local
mining industry to shore up the Philippine economy for the next
six years. Optimism for the industry came about after the
Supreme Court ruled that foreign firms can take control of local
mining ventures, thus opening the way for increased investments
in the sector.

NATIONAL POWER: State Sets Terms for Absorbing Debts
----------------------------------------------------
The government has laid out several conditions before it decides
to shoulder National Power Corporation's (Napocor) remaining
debts, The Philippine Star reports.

Budget Secretary Emilia Boncodin said Napocor would have to
prove that it has done everything to unload its saleable assets,
increased its operating efficiency, and reduced its costs.

The government has absorbed close to Php200 billion of Napocor's
debts. However, Ms. Boncodin said the government wants to reduce
the amount of the remaining debts that would have to be
absorbed.

The Department of Finance (DOF) is reviewing the legality of
absorbing more than the Php200 billion prescribed under the
Electric Power Industry Reform Act (EPIRA).

The Department of Energy and the Power Sector Assets and
Liabilities Management Corp. (PSALM) earlier estimated that the
total debts that Napocor could no longer handle and would have
to be absorbed were actually closer to Php500 billion.

The remaining Php300-billion debts are still marked for possible
absorption by the national government but the DBCC (Development
Budget Coordinating Council) urged Napocor to first try and
unload some of its assets as well as improve its operations.

After the increase in its power generation rates, the sale of
its Masinloc plant and the removal of some Php196 billion worth
of debts from its books, Napocor should have ample room to
improve its operations, Ms. Boncodin said.

She said the government would have to ultimately carry some more
of Napocor's debts but wanted to reduce this amount to the
barest minimum, narrowed down to debts that Napocor cannot
handle even after all the steps already taken.

NATIONAL TRANSMISSION: Inks Deal with FF Cruz, Geodata
------------------------------------------------------
The National Transmission Corp. (Transco) has clinched a
Php33.6-million contract with the joint venture of FF Cruz &
Co., Inc and Geodata Systems Technologies, Inc. to develop an
electronic assets mapping and analysis tool to ensure smooth
operations of transmission assets, BusinessWorld reports.

The system is seen to provide spatial data components such as
the exact location and image of Transco's field assets from
substations to steel towers. This will also cover the 20,000
kilometers of transmission lines nationwide.

Transco President Alan T. Ortiz said this will help its
supervisory control and data acquisition system to view and
analyze faulty transmission lines in virtual reality mode
compared to the present setup where presentations only show a
single line diagram scheme.

Through satellite imagery and aerial photography, conditions of
transmission lines, towers, vegetation, land use,
infrastructure, roads and trails that may affect the electricity
flow can thus be examined.

The analytic capability of the system, meanwhile, will be used
to analyze fault locations, real-time routing, line inspection
and maintenance, right-of-way management, vegetation management,
environmental planning and assets management.

FF Cruz specializes in aerial photography and satellite mapping.
Geodata Systems, meanwhile, is an active provider of similar
systems to many government institutions and private companies.

The project is also in partnership with IBM Philippines and US
firm Power Engineers & Environmental Systems Research Institute.

NATIONAL TRANSMISSION: Congress OKs Privatization by Concessions
----------------------------------------------------------------
National Transmission Corporation (Transco) will proceed with
its privatization through the grant of concessions, The
Philippine Star reveals.

The Joint Congressional Power Commission (JCPC) has given
Transco the go-ahead to privatize the country's power
transmission highway through various concessions. The lawmakers
have agreed that the national government will retain the
ownership of Transco's assets.

Under Republic Act 9136 or the Electric Power Industry Reform
Act (EPIRA), the sale of the assets of the National Power Corp.
(Napocor), including the transmission assets, should be done
through outright sale.

Transco is a spin-off firm of the Power Sector Assets and
Liabilities Management Corp. (PSALM), which handles the
finances, and privatization of Napocor. All the transmission
assets of Napocor will be transferred to Transco.

The National Government expects to raise a total of US$5 billion
from the sale of the Napocor assets of which about US$2 billion
would be generated from the privatization of Transco.

Transco has already completed the new terms of reference for the
proposed public bidding. The terms of reference is expected to
continue to carry previous terms such as that the winning
concessionaire should have technical and financial capabilities
in running a transmission company. It should also comply with

The latest schedule for the Transco bidding is set on October
this year.


NATIONAL TRANSMISSION: Government Says Sale is On Schedule
----------------------------------------------------------
The National Transmission Corp. (Transco) said it is on track
with its privatization schedule but is awaiting the appointment
of a new president for the agency tasked to privatize the
country's power sector, BusinessWorld says.

Transco believes the privatization will not be postponed but
said the appointment of a new president for the Power Sector
Assets and Liabilities Management Corp. (PSALM) will hasten the
sale of Transco's assets.

The PSALM president post was vacated when Raphael Lotilla was
appointed as the new energy secretary replacing Vince S. Perez
Jr. who resigned in March. PSALM is presently headed by Ma. Luz
Caminero as officer-in-charge.

Transco's privatization was earlier moved to October instead of
July to make the schedule "more realistic".

The firm is now awaiting results of the appraisal of Transco's
assets, a requirement for the privatization, expected to be
finished by July.

Transco earlier signed a contract with the consortium headed by
international consulting firm Sinclair Knight Merz for the
inventory and assessment of Transco's assets. Sinclair is
scheduled to submit its initial valuation report on July 18 this
year and the final report by Aug. 19. Transco is then required
to submit this to regulators on or before Aug. 31.

DATACRAFT ASIA: Wins US$5-Mln Contract from Thai Firm
-----------------------------------------------------
Datacraft Asia, the region's leading independent IT services
company, has been awarded a US$5 million contract by Thailand's
True Corporation PCL.

The contract covers the design and implementation of a
nationwide Internet Protocol (IP) Multi Protocol Label Switching
(MPLS) network that will deliver new value-added services for
Trues' portfolio of broadband, wireless, cellular and wireline
telephone services.

As Thailand's only fully integrated telecommunications solutions
provider, True is also in the unique position of being able to
enjoy economies of scale by running multiple services across an
integrated backbone network.

Datacraft was awarded the contract because of the strength of
its Professional and Managed services, as well as the rich
functionality of its proposed solution.

"Putting advanced MPLS capabilities at the heart of its network
will help True to accelerate its business by enabling a range of
new value added services over a single infrastructure," said
Somchart Kanha, General Manager of Datacraft Thailand.

"Datacraft is committed to delivering a highly-efficient,
scalable and secure network that will ensure Service Level
Agreements with True's internal and external customers are
guaranteed. Simplified provision and the inherent efficiency of
operating a single infrastructure will enable True to reduce its
costs."

True provides consumers, small and medium enterprises and
corporations in Thailand with the full range of voice, data and
multimedia solutions. It is the largest wire-line service
provider in the Bangkok Metropolitan Area, the largest Broadband
operator in the country and a major player in the wireless,
cellular and Internet markets. It is also a significant
shareholder in UBC, Thailand's dominant pay television operator.

"Across the Group, we already offer a very broad portfolio of
services but they are delivered over disparate networks," said
an Executive of True Corporation PLC. "This project will enable
us to converge our backbone networks on to a single, more
efficient and manageable infrastructure, without impacting
customer access."

"The real payoff, however, will be in the new generation of
value-added service we will be able to provide, particularly
through use of virtual private networks which are highly
efficient over MPLS. We will, for example, be able to offer
business customers voice-over-IP VPN services with centrex-style
provisioning from our data centre. Other managed services - for
video, conferencing, private content distribution, multicasting
and security - as well as anyto-any WAN connectivity, will also
be available."

One of the key benefits of Datacraft's VPN-over-MPLS solution is
its connectionless nature which overcomes the scalability issues
of using conventional, connection-oriented VPN in a meshed
topology. This will enable very large virtual networks to be
implemented with the additional reliability, security and
quality-of-service benefits the MPLS brings.

One of the first beneficiaries of this will be True's
subsidiary, TA Orange. TA Orange, which has attracted more than
US$3.6 million customers since its launch in 2002, is Thailand's
fastest growing cellular network service provider. To ensure
that TA Orange can continue its aggressive expansion, True will
provide a high-availability, high-capacity virtual backbone
network to support nation-wide wireless voice services.

Within the Bangkok Metropolitan Area, where True operates an
access network of more than 2.5 million lines, it will be able
to leverage differentiated class-of-service that comes from MPLS
highly-granular QoS capabilities to offer high-quality TV-over-
ADSL services to it broadband consumer customers.

There is no material impact on this financial year.
