ALLSTATE EXPLORATIONS: Files Legal Action Against Law Firm
----------------------------------------------------------
Law firm Blake Dawson Waldron (BDW) is facing an AU$80-million
lawsuit by the administrator of failed gold miner Allstate
Explorations for negligence, The Australian reports.

Allstate's joint administrators, Michael Ryan and Tony Woodings
of Taylor Woodings, filed the writ against BDW in November last
year, alleging breach of contract, negligence, misleading and
deceptive conduct and breach of fiduciary duty. But it did not
serve the notice, issued by the Western Australian Supreme
Court, until last month.

The legal action stemmed from an earlier dispute between
Allstate Explorations and its partner Beaconsfield Gold, which
sued Batepro and Brown & Root Engineering for negligence in
constructing a gold treatment plant.

The latest suit relates to legal advice given by BDW nearly
seven years ago to Allstate Explorations.

Allstate sought advice on an insurance policy for the design and
construction and commissioning of the gold treatment plant
constructed by now-defunct Batepro and Brown & Root. However,
the plant failed to work and now the insurer, QBE, claims the
policy does not cover the claims made against the two
construction firms.

Allstate's administrator alleges that their lawyers failed to
ensure that they had enforceable rights against the insurer, and
are seeking unspecified damages.

BDW has retained law firm Jackson McDonald, according to WA
Supreme Court records. BDW spokesman Tim Graves declined to
comment.

The parties are scheduled to appear before the registrar on July
4 for status conference.

Meanwhile, Allstate's administrators face another action in the
NSW Supreme Court brought by Allstate shareholders seeking to
remove them and overturn a transaction in which they sold $77.4
million worth of Allstate inter-Company debts to Macquarie Bank.

The registrar will set a trial date on July 13.

ANVIL MINING: Scandal Affects Operators
---------------------------------------
The media frenzy surrounding Anvil Mining Limited's central
Africa Operations has affected other Australian miners working
in Africa, The Age says.

Anvil has been embroiled in controversy since it was forced to
deny any responsibility in killing up to 100 people during the
quashing of a rebel uprising in the Democratic Republic of Congo
in October 2004.

It admitted its vehicles were used in a military attack on
rebels in a village near its mine, but vehemently rejected
allegations it was complicit or implicated in the military
action and associated loss of life.

The incident highlighted the risks of operating in the DRC.

One Company feeling the effects is Perth-based explorer
Discovery Nickel, which has an advanced nickel project in
Botswana, in southern Africa.

Discovery, which aims to raise money later this year to develop
its North East Botswana nickel project, is hoping investors will
differentiate Botswana from the DRC and other troubled African
nations. It explained Botswana is a much lower risk than DRC and
the general African risk profile.

EVANS & TATE: Insolvency Firm Comes to Aid
------------------------------------------
Evans & Tate executive chairman Franklin Tate has admitted that
the firm has been coordinating with insolvency firm KordaMentha
for three weeks on the recommendation of its major creditor,
ANZ, The West Australian reveals.

Mr. Tate revealed, just a day after it denied KordaMentha's
involvement, that 333 Performance Management was appointed to
the wine group on June 1 to "improve its forecasting, planning
and business efficiencies".

333 Performance Management is owned by KordaMentha founding
partners Mark Mentha and Mark Korda, and operates from
KordaMentha offices around the country.

Mr. Tate denied misleading investors after choosing not to
disclose the appointment of the consultancy on Tuesday when he
was questioned over rumors that KordaMentha had been called in
to take control of E&T, and failing to reveal 333's link to the
insolvency firm.

Mr. Tate also said that 333's appointment was made to meet a
shortfall in financial expertise after the departure of E&T's
chief financial officer, Bryce Houghton, late last year. The
Company confirmed it had recruited Hartleys' chief financial
officer Terence Power to fill the vacant role from July 1.

FELTEX CARPETS: Says Goodbye to Chief Operating Officer
-------------------------------------------------------
The chief operating officer of embattled Feltex Carpets Limited
is set to follow the departure of its chief executive officer,
according to the national Business Review.

John Kokic will leave Feltex following the firm's second hefty
profit downgrade since its listing a year ago.

Analysts believe that Mr. Kokic's departure has something to do
with the Board's lost of confidence in the firm's senior
management.

Feltex Chairman Tim Suanders did not confirm Mr. Kokic's exit.
He, however, said that Feltex chief financial officer Des Tolan
will stay.

In a recent profit downgrade, Feltex expects its net profit for
the fiscal year to June 30 to be about half of its original
profit guidance when it listed on the New Zealand stock exchange
a year ago.

The carpet maker's chief executive officer, Sam Magill, is set
to step donn later this year, as part of the firm's wide-ranging
review of its operations and senior management team.

FELTEX CARPETS: Quizzed By Watchdog After Surprise Downgrades
-------------------------------------------------------------
The New Zealand Securities Commission has grilled Feltex Carpets
Ltd. about the financial woes leading to two surprise profit
downgrades within a year of listing on the local stock market,
Dow Jones Newswires reports.

The New Zealand-based carpet-maker confirmed it has been
contacted by the Commission, but added that it doesn't think the
market watchdog is commissioning a full probe.

The Commission has a long-held policy of refusing to confirm or
deny that it is conducting an investigation. However, it has
received a formal complaint about Feltex's listing prospectus
from the New Zealand Shareholders' Association, an investor
advocacy group.

Feltex has been under fire from investors and some brokerages
after revealing that its net profit for the fiscal year to June
30 will likely be about half of the NZ$23.9 million projected in
its prospectus when it listed on the stock exchange a year ago.

Earlier last week, Feltex again lowered its forecast, saying
that its net profit is now likely to be between NZ$11.5 million
and NZ$12 million, before restructuring costs.

As a response to the surprise downgrades the Shareholders'
Association requested that the Commission look for any breaches
of securities legislation, and said that there appears to be
reasonable basis to believe that Feltex's forecasts could not be
met shortly after it listed.

MYER LIMITED: Urges Suppliers to Share Pain
-------------------------------------------
Troubled department store chain Myer Limited is asking its
suppliers to do their part in order to ease the burden of
consumer-spending downturn, The Australian reveals.

The Coles Myer subsidiary wants its suppliers to help pay for
its marketing budget, in a bid to boost its lackluster
bottomline.

The suppliers' contribution may be extended through the
collection "markdown money" to split the cost of putting items
on sale, as well as demands for a share of the benefits flowing
to suppliers from a lower rate of duty on imported apparel.

Myer chief executive Dawn Robertson also wrote to suppliers in
April and May, advising them of a 10 percent marketing fee on
new season apparel and footwear orders for the new Myer store in
Brisbane. The money will be sued to finance promotional activity
for the relaunch of the Brisbane store in August.

Although it is not unusual for retailers to seek marketing
support from suppliers for a new or refurbished store, one
source said the Myer demand was "deeper and wider" than standard
industry practice.

A Coles spokesman said suppliers were generally supportive of
the fee and would benefit from additional sales in an "updated
environment".

About Myer Limited

With 61 stores nationally, Myer is a market leader in Australian
retailing. It is continually transforming to better serve our
customers and their changing needs.

In 1998, it launched Megamart stores, offering customers the
widest range of electrical and furniture merchandise with

NORFOLK JET: Releases Crucial Information for Creditors
-------------------------------------------------------
Brisbane-based Chartered Accountants, Howarth BRI, have been
named as the Voluntary Administrator appointed by the Directors
of Norfolk Jet Express Pty Ltd Australia following the cessation
of trading by the carrier earlier this month.

As a result of the appointment and termination of flight
services to and from Australia, the Norfolk Island Government
has applied to the Supreme Court for orders in relation to the
winding up of Norfolk Jet Express Pty Ltd, the Norfolk Island
Company.

Community members are advised to contact Official Liquidators
directly if they are a creditor, debtor or person with any other
queries relating to the two companies.

According to advice from the Voluntary Administrator of the
Australian Company and the Official Liquidator for the Norfolk
Island Company, the two are closely related and there is
confusion about which creditors belong to which Company.

Therefore, those wishing to make a claim for money owed to them
by Norfolk Jet Express and are not aware whether it is the
Australian or Norfolk Island Company that owes them the debt,
have been advised to contact both the Voluntary Administrator
and the Official Liquidator of their claim. Contact details are
listed below.

All owners of current Norfolk Jet travel passes are considered
creditors.

Comparative financial information will be presented applying A-
IFRS for transition adjustments to the opening balance sheet at
July 1, 2004 and to restate 2004/05 comparative earnings. This
will not include the impact of AASB 139 "Financial Instruments"
as this is not required at this stage.

The Chief Financial Officer of Qantas, Mr. Peter Gregg, said
that A-IFRS would not affect cash flows, credit ratings,
dividend policy or the economic management of the airline and
that Qantas did not expect any significant impact on future
earnings.

"First-time adoption of A-IFRS results in a reduction in
retained earnings of AU$826 million and therefore an increase in
gearing ratios. Despite this, we do not anticipate any change to
Qantas' capital management policies or profitability.

"The most significant adoption adjustments will include the
deferred recognition of frequent flyer revenue, recognition of a
funding deficit for the defined benefit portion of the Qantas
Superannuation Plan and the reclassification of some non-
cancelable aircraft operating leases as finance leases," he
said.

Mr. Gress emphasized that the changes resulted from mandated
changes in accounting standards which had no affect on cash
flows and therefore no affect on the economic value of the
Company.

He said Qantas would provide additional information as required
to explain the impacts of A-IFRS on reported financial
information in future periods.

"As many of the international standards introduce new accounting
concepts, we expect that interpretation of the standards will
continue to evolve for some time to come."

QANTAS AIRWAYS: S&P Says Rating Unaffected by A-IFRS
----------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services on Friday said that Qantas
Airways Ltd.'s transition adjustments to the new Australian
equivalent of International Financial Reporting Standards-A-
IFRS-would have no immediate effect on its 'BBB+/A-2'ratings or
on the outlook of the airline. The adoption of A-IFRS will
result in a reduction in Qantas' retained earnings of A$826
million and will produce modestly higher gearing ratios at June
30, 2005. Balance-sheet leverage is expected to increase by
about 5% to 59%-60% on a lease-adjusted gross basis (net of
security deposits).
     
Importantly for the ratings, the adoption of A-IFRS will not
affect Qantas' reported cash flows, strategies, operations, its
ability to meet its financial obligations, or the overall
economic management of the airline.
     
The largest component of the retained earnings adjustment, some
A$749 million, relates to revenue recognition of frequent flyer
points sold to third parties (such as credit card companies).
Under the new standard, Qantas is required to defer the revenue
raised from selling the points until the points have been
redeemed, in contrast to Australian generally accepted
accounting principles (GAAP), which allowed Qantas to recognize
the revenue from those points when the revenue was received.
     
Another component of the A$829 million adjustment is the
recognition of a A$19 million funding deficit for the defined
benefit proportion of the Qantas superannuation plan. The
comparative adjustment at July 1, 2004 was A$54 million. Most of
the remaining A$58 million reduction in retained earnings at
June 30, 2005 relates to the reclassification of some
noncancelable aircraft operating leases as finance leases, a
small positive adjustment to fixed assets, and recognition of
additional deferred tax liabilities.

STAR FRIES: Crunch Time for Chip Factory
----------------------------------------
The Star Fries factory, one of South Australia's newest and

receivership, ABC Rural News reveals.

The Company, which opened in May last year for the purpose of

financial woes.

known the Company was in trouble for some time. The plant
reportedly missed its early payments on potatoes received early
in the season.

In a meeting with suppliers in early April, Star Fries admitted

WMC RESOURCES: Moody's Ups Units' Ratings with Stable Outlook
-------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has upgraded WMC Finance (USA) Limited
and WMC Finance Limited's ratings to A2/P-1 from Baa2/P-2. These
entities are wholly-owned subsidiaries of WMC Resources Limited
(WMCR). The rating outlook is stable.

This concludes WMCR's rating review, which followed BHP
Billiton's announced full takeover acquisition of the Company.
BHP Billiton has achieved over 90% ownership of WMCR and it is
proceeding to compulsorily acquire the remaining shares.

The ratings upgrade reflects Moody's view that BHP Billiton will
likely provide ongoing financial and operational support for
WMCR if required as a fully-owned subsidiary. Such support
reflects the strategic fit of WMCR, with its substantial
operations in nickel and copper, core commodities for the BHP
Billiton group. WMCR's operations will be integrated within BHP
Billiton's existing customer sector groups, and subject to BHP
Billiton's operating management framework.

Moody's says the ratings upgrade also reflect WMCR's stand-alone
solid investment grade rating quality, which will be enhanced by
BHP Billiton's ownership of the Company. Such enhancement
includes operational improvements reflects ongoing cost
enhancements through the elimination of corporate functions and
enhanced procurement arrangements.

Moody's believes that WMCR is likely to receive ongoing funding
from BHP Billiton to finance its growth plans, such as the
potential expansion of Olympic Dam. Accordingly, WMCR's external
debt is not expected to materially grow over the medium term.

The upgrade in the short-term rating from P-2 to P-1 reflects
the enhanced credit fundamentals and the strengthened liquidity
position arising from reduced reliance on short-term debt.
Management intends to shortly cancel WMCR's CP program and
Moody's expects to withdraw the short-term rating when that
occurs. With no short term debt, WMCR will have a strong debt
maturity profile, with the first major maturity not occurring
until 2013.

WMC Resources Ltd is a metal and mining Company currently listed
on the Australian Stock Exchange. The Company is likely to be
de-listed shortly.

12 August 2002.

Pursuant to group reorganization to rationale the structure of

(2004: 400,000,000) shares deemed to have been in issue during

MOULIN GLOBAL: Unlikely to Resist Creditor Move to Liquidate
------------------------------------------------------------
Moulin Global Eyecare Holdings will not oppose a legal bid by
creditor banks to have it declared bankrupt, AFX News reports,
citing the South China Morning Post.

Accounting inconsistencies have continued to surface and lenders
were concerned that Moulin would file for Chapter 11 protection
in the U.S. given that the country is home to one of the
Company's largest assets, Eye Care Centers of America, which it
bought in February for US$250 million.

The concern was that this could start a jurisdictional battle
over assets.

MOULIN GLOBAL: Names Provisional Liquidator
-------------------------------------------
Hong Kong's High Court has appointed Ferrier Hodgson as the
provisional liquidator of Moulin Global Eyecare even as it
became clear that its U.S. unit Eye Care Centers of America
(ECCA) would be excluded from the proceedings, The Standard
reports.

Ferrier Hodgson will work with the 29 creditor banks, which are
collectively owed HK$2.4 billion, and Company management in an
effort to find a way to revive the Company. Overall, Moulin owes
HK$5.33 billion, but much of that debt is related to its
acquisition last year of a controlling stake in ECCA.

Mr. Sutton said ECCA would be excluded from any debt
restructuring agreed between the Company and its creditors.

Earlier this week, in a filing with the Hong Kong stock
exchange, the Company admitted that it had only HK$15 million in
working capital - not the HK$90 million it claimed to have on
hand just a few weeks back due to an error caused by double
counting.

Note:

Information on HSI Services Limited

The Hang Seng Family of Indexes is managed and compiled by HSI
Services Limited, which is a wholly owned subsidiary of Hang
Seng Bank. The members of the index family include the Hang
Seng Index, Hang Seng Composite Index Series, Hang Seng
Freefloat Index Series and Hang Seng Total Return Index Series.

For further information on the Hang Seng family of indexes,
please visit the Company's website at www.hsi.com.hk.

Information on the Hang Seng Composite Index Series

The Hang Seng Composite Index Series consists of the top 200
listed companies in Hong Kong in terms of full market
capitalization. It can be classified into nine industries or
seven geographic indexes. Within the Geographical Series, the
seven geographical indexes are further classified into Hong Kong
or Mainland related indexes according to where the majority of
sales revenue is derived.

Companies with over 50 percent of their sales revenue derived
from the Mainland will be included in the "Mainland" series;
others will be included in the "Hong Kong" series. Profits
and/or total assets may also be used for the classification if
they better reflect the geographical status of the companies.

Information on the Hang Seng Freefloat Index Series

The Hang Seng Freefloat Index Series comprises six indexes and
consists of the same 200 listed companies as the Hang Seng
Composite Index Series. It adopts the freefloat-adjusted market
capitalisation method in its calculation to provide investors
with an alternative market benchmark that takes into account the
long-term strategic holdings not readily available for trading
in the market.

The three master indexes - the Hang Seng Freefloat Composite
Index, Hang Seng HK Freefloat Index and Hang Seng Mainland
Freefloat Index - were launched on 23 September 2002. The three
subsets, and Hang Seng 50, Hang Seng HK 25 and Hang Seng
Mainland 25, were launched on 20 January 2003. They are formed
by the largest constituents of the Hang Seng Freefloat Index
Series in terms of freefloat-adjusted market capitalisation and
were created for the purpose of facilitating the creation of
index derivative products.

Information on the Hang Seng Total Return Index Series

The Hang Seng Total Return Index Series captures both the price
change and the cash dividend payments by the constituent
companies to shareholders. Total Return Indexes add back cash
dividends to index calculation, assuming that the dividends are
re-invested into the index portfolio according to their
respective market capitalisation weightings. The Hang Seng Total
Return Index Series was launched on 11 October 2004 and is
mainly used by fund managers, actuaries and financial advisors
in measuring the performance of equity funds, especially pension
funds, as price indexes fail to capture the dividend income of
the funds.

PERTAMINA: Fuel Stockpile Rises But Still Below Safe Level
----------------------------------------------------------
On June 22, 2005, state oil and gas firm PT Pertamina received
imported fuel from tankers, which raised its stock levels of
local fuel up to 18 days, but it is still 4 days short of the
recommended safe oil stock level of 22 days, reports the Jakarta
Post.

Three tankers in Semangka Bay, Lampung unloaded around 1.8
million barrels of premium and diesel gasoline into the Company,
while 200,000 barrels of premium gasoline from China had also
arrived in Jakarta.

Pertamina Fuel Division Chief Achmad Faisal said that the
Company's stocks of premium gasoline reserves was enough to
cover the country's needs for 14 days, while diesel stock levels
increased slightly to 15 days from 14.5 days.

Mr. Faisal added that there is enough premium gasoline to last
seven days for the area of Jakarta, but did not elaborate on
other areas.

Because of the continuing fuel shortage in the country and
rising global oil prices, the Indonesian government plans to
draft a regulation that limits the use of fuel and electricity,
also because it cannot afford to increase its fuel subsidies to
Pertamina.

PERTAMINA: To Receive IDR10-Trillion Oil Subsidy from Government
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Indonesian government is planning to pay state-owned oil
firm PT Pertamina IDR10 trillion in fuel subsidies today, June
27, 2005, Dow Jonres reports.

The payment, together with an IDR15 trillion subsidy paid to the
Company in the first quarter of the year, is part of an IDR76-
trillion government budget for fuel in 2005 alone.

Pertamina President Widya Purnama told reporters earlier this
week that the Company needs IDR12.5 trillion to raise the stock
levels of its fuel from 12.5 days to a safer level of 20 days,
in order to provide enough fuel supply for the country.

But according to the Ministry of Finance Treasury Director Mulia
Nasution, there is no problem with the government's paying of
fuel subsidies to Pertamina as it has enough liquidity to cover
such payments.


PERUSAHAAN LISTRIK: Plants' Fuel Stock to Last Ten Days
-------------------------------------------------------
State-run power firm PT Perusahaan Listrik (PLN) reports that it
has only enough fuel stock for two to days operations in four of
its power plants, reports Asia Pulse.

The four power plants are: Grati (East Java), Muara Tawar
(Bekasi, West Java), Pesanggaran & Gilimanuk (Bali) and Tambak
Lorok (Central Java).

According to PLN President Eddie Widiono, the power plants
differ in the amount of fuel needed to run them. For example,
Muara Tawar needs 7,000 kiloliters of fuel per day, while the
other plants need only 2,000 to 2,500 kiloliters of fuel a day.

Mr. Widiono added that for the time being, the supply of fuel is
normal, but the Company must ensure a steady fuel supply in the
long run, so as to keep the power plants in operation. In order
to do this, PLN will cooperate with state oil firm PT Pertamina
for the supply of fuel oil.

PT Pertamina contributes 20% of PLN's fuel oil supply, so that
the Company would not be gravely affected by fuel shortages.

manipulative sales practices and failure to screen out money
laundering.

"Citibank N.A. is now struggling in the private banking and
retail businesses and we would like to support it as much as we
can," Nikko Cordial President Junichi Arimura said.

"As it is our partner in our investment banking joint venture
Nikko Citigroup, we would like to work together (with Citigroup)
on both an individual and corporate basis," the President said,
without elaborating.

GENERAL MOTORS ASIA: To Recall 115 Cadillac Sedans
--------------------------------------------------
General Motors Asia Pacific Japan, the Japanese arm of General
Motors Corporation, will recall 115 units of its ritzy Cadillac
Deville sedan, Kyodo News reports.

In a report filed with the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and
Transport, the vehicles in question were imported between
October 2003 and December 2004.

The Company became aware of the defect after a Cadillac Deville
bumped into another car at a parking lot in Tokyo's Chiyoda Ward
in January due to the faulty brake, the Company said.

General Motors Corp. had a loss of US$1.1 billion in the first
quarter of 2005 compared with net income of US$1.28 billion a
year earlier, as revenue fell 4.3 percent to US$45.8 billion.

* Teikoku Unveils 4,257 Rehab Proceedings in Five Years
-------------------------------------------------------  
Teikoku Databank America announced that the number of filings
quadrupled that of the "Old Composition", but only 879 cases
completed the civil rehabilitation proceedings.

Introduction

Five years have passed since the "Civil Rehabilitation Law" was
enforced in April 2000. The law aims to legally turnover the
businesses of debtors faced with a financial crisis by
implementing a "reconstruction type of bankruptcy proceedings".
During the past five years, a wide range of companies, from
small to large listed companies of different sizes and sector,
filed for the law. Teikoku Databank analyzed the status of
companies filing for the law by number, liability, sector, and
status of proceedings during the past five years since its
enforcement. (April 2000 - March 2005).

Research Result:

The Number of Filings: There were 4,257 companies that filed for
the law during the past five years (including 165 companies
shifted to utilize the "Civil Rehabilitation Law" from other
bankruptcy proceedings). After reaching the peak in 2001 (1,019
cases), the number of filed companies has been declining every
year. Only 622 companies filed for the law in 2004, dropping
39.0% since 2001.

Comparison with the "Old Composition" -- The Number of Cases
Quadrupled and Liabilities were Larger: The "Civil
Rehabilitation Law" was enforced as an alternative of the "Old
Composition". There were 4,092 bankruptcies filed under the
"Civil Rehabilitation Law" after its enforcement as compared to
1,037 bankruptcies filed under the "Old Composition" for five
years before the enforcement of the "Civil Rehabilitation Law"
(Apr 1995-Mar 2000). The "Civil Rehabilitation Law" enabled
quicker, simpler, and clearer bankruptcy proceedings, which
resulted in an increase of bankruptcy filings almost 4 times
more than those of the "Old Composition". In comparison with the
liabilities per case, "Old Composition" was 3,369 million yen
and "Civil Rehabilitation Law" was 6,137 million yen, which
indicates that the "Civil Rehabilitation Law" was positively
utilized for large sized bankruptcies.

Percentage of filings for the "Civil Rehabilitation Law" in
Overall Bankruptcy: During the five years (April 2002 - March
2005), the number of the overall bankruptcies was 86,972 cases
and the total liabilities were 73,162,800 million yen. In
comparison, the number of bankrupt companies filed under the
"Civil Rehabilitation Law" was 4,092 cases and its total
liabilities were 25,115,200 million yen (ones filed newly). The
bankruptcies filed under the "Civil Rehabilitation Law" accounts
for 4.7 percent in number and 34.3 percent in total liabilities.

By Sector: Manufactures Accounts for 25% of Overall Companies:
Out of 4257 cases, "Manufacturers" ranked the top with 1,013
cases, accounting for 23.8%, followed by "Construction" (848
cases, 19.9%), "Services" (785 cases, 18.4%), "Wholesalers" (649
cases, 15.2%), and "Retailer" (567 cases, 13.3%).

The Number of Approvals, Dismissals/Abolitions, etc of Turnover
Plans: Out of 4,257 companies filing for the "Civil
Rehabilitation Law", 2,841 received the approval for a turnover
plan from the court and 879 cases finalized for the proceedings.
On the other hand, at least 920 cases gave up the proceeding
under the "Civil Rehabilitation Law" (636 companies got refusal,
dismissal, or abolition before approval and 284 companies
received proceeding abolitions after approval). In short, the
number of failed proceedings (920 cases) exceeds that of
completed proceedings (879 cases).

Average Days for Proceeding: On average, it took 29.9 days from
"filing" to "beginning of proceeding" and 225.8 days from
"beginning of procedure" to "approval". In general, the duration
for proceedings varies depending on local court.

BRIDGE SECURITIES: Dongbu Eyes Takeover
---------------------------------------
Dongbu Group is looking to acquire the besieged Bridge
Securities, in a bid to boost its securities operations, reports
The Korea Times.

Dongbu, one of Korea's largest business groups, signified its
interest in Bridge after regulators rejected a proposed merger
between Bridge and Leading Investment $ Securities last month.

The Financial Supervisory Commission (FSC) on May 27 junked a
merger deal between Bridge and Leading, citing poor-post-merger
viability. The regulator concluded that the merger plan was
unrealistic after weeks of considering the asset structure, the
underlying business strength and other relevant aspects.

The regulator also said that it is not sensible for Leading
Investment to complete the acquisition with only KRW2 billion in
cash when the merger costs are expected to reach KRW150 billion.

The decision virtually blocked Hong Kong-based fund Bridge
Investment Holding (BIH), the largest shareholder of Bridge
Securities, from disposing of its controlling 78.19 percent
stake in the broker.

The Hong Kong-based British fund has said that it will liquidate
the broker unless the FSC approves the merger plan. But the
fund's stance has been met with strong protest from union
members.

According to analysts, the securities firm may be saved from
liquidation if the merger talk with Dongbu Group goes smoothly.

HANMAUM MUTUAL: Solomon Mulls KRW55-Bln Purchase
------------------------------------------------
Solomon Mutual Savings Bank is set to acquire troubled Hanmaum
Mutual Savings Bank for KRW55 billion, Asia Pulse reports.

The savings bank signed an agreement with sale manager Korea
Deposit Insurance Corporation (KDIC) on June 17, 2005 to buy the
troubled institution, which suspended operations in September
2004.

In the takeover deal, Solomon will clear Hanmaum's balance sheet
with an injection of KRW381.5 billion, while most of its KRW55
billion investment would go to increasing the lender's capital
adequacy ratio above the 8% minimum level. If the takeover is
approved, Solomon would spend around KRW25 billion to acquire
the lender and form a new mutual savings bank with a 5.29%
capital ratio by July. Then it would inject the remaining KRW30
billion to boost the bank's capital ratio above 8%.

Solomon Bank and KDIC agreed on the takeover deal six months
before KDIC gained control of the troubled lender from the
Financial Supervisory Service (FSS). The KDIC has been managing
the sale since January this year, but had difficulty attracting
bidders because of a strict vetting process.

Hanmaum Mutual Savings Bank was frozen due to increased bad
assets and a capital ratio that fell below the required 8%
minimum ratio, at -3.46% in June 2004. The bank's liabilities
amounted to KRW1 trillion, while its assets amounted to KRW917
billion, in the same period. For the fiscal year ended June 30,
2004, the bank's interest losses after loan loss provision
amounted to KRW46.82 billion, against an income of KRW25.29
billion. The bank incurred a net loss of KRW56.44 billion,
against an income of KRW14.34 billion.

LG CARD: May Delinquency Ratio Drops
------------------------------------
Credit card issuer LG Card Co. Ltd. said on June 17, 2005 that
its delinquency ratio fell from 10.9% in April to 10.2 % in May,
reports Reuters News.

The credit card firm's delinquency ratio dropped due to a
decrease in its credit card bills. Creditors are expecting that
the firm would garner a KRW1 trillion profit by the end of the
year.

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.

MALAYAN UNITED: Sells Off Older British Hotels
----------------------------------------------
Malayan United Industries Berhad will sell eight hotels in
Britain to Swallow Hotels, Ltd. for MYR227.3 million, The Star
reports.

According to a Company spokesman, the hotels were being sold as
they did not fit with its Corus hotel brand. The sale is also
part of the Company's rationalization program, and proceeds from
the sale would go to paying some of its debts.

The Company will continue its core hotel business. But a Company
spokesman said the hotels must fit the Corus brand, as well be
of a suitable size, in a suitable location. The Company sold off
its older hotels, built between the 1400s and the 1980s.

According to MUI, the total acquisition cost of the hotels was
MYR187.4 million, but since then, their net book value has been
pegged at MYR233.3 million. Therefore, the proposed disposal
would result in a MYR6 million loss.

ABS-CBN BROADCASTING: Reorg Starts with Marketing Division
----------------------------------------------------------
The restructuring of loss-making ABS-CBN Broadcasting
Corporation would likely begin with the dissolution of its
marketing and sales division, relates The Philippine Daily
Inquirer.

The embattled media network is expected to abolish its
Integrated Marketing and Sales Division, with the different
broadcast units like Channel 2, UHF stations, cable channels,
and radio again having their own marketing and sales staff
directly reporting and accountable to their mother units.

The Integrated Marketing and Sales Division was created by
senior vice president Nicanor Gabunada Jr., who introduced the
cross-platform and integrated advertising strategy only in 2002.
With the supposed collapse of his division, it is not clear what
fate awaits Mr. Gabunada.

ABS-CBN has been suffering from plunging revenues and ratings
this year after the earnings spike in 2002 and 2003. The network
has booked this year its shocking, first-time loss.

New president Luis Alejandro is will soon announce more details
of the network-wide reorganization and early retirement program.

DIGITAL TELECOMMUNICATIONS: In Line Purchase Standoff with Gov't
----------------------------------------------------------------
Digital Telecommunications (Digitel) will be unable to secure
from the government over 60,000 telephones in Luzon if it fails
to pay around Php2.2 billion in rental for using the lines since
1993, BusinessWorld says.

The government also said it will only sell the lines to Digitel
if the telco agrees to buy all facilities and equipment
connected to the lines, including public calling offices in the
countryside.

The government insists that Digitel first pay line rental
arrears totaling Php2.2 billion, buy lines currently leased
worth Php2.19 billion, and then acquire facilities connected to
the lines worth another Php1.4 billion.

In August last year, Digitel told the Department of
Transportation and Communication (DOTC) that it was only going
to pay around Php2.4 billion for the telephone lines currently
leased, inclusive of paid rentals.

But the DOTC considered Digitels' offer as unacceptable, since
the facilities are part and parcel of an entire communication
network with one backbone. Rejection of some facilities will
result in additional costs for the government because of the
need to continuously operate and maintain the same.

The telephone line business was reportedly key to Digitel's
performance last year, when it profited Php7.3 million.

Meanwhile, Digitel vice-president William S. Pamintuan said his
Company would pursue the long-standing negotiations with the
government to purchase the telephone lines the state had
installed all over Luzon.

NATIONAL TRANSMISSION: Assets Sale Draws Power Co-ops
-----------------------------------------------------
The National Transmission Corp. (Transco) is looking to clinch
20 more sales contracts this year with electric cooperatives
interested in acquiring the Company's sub-transmission assets
and top the first semester sales of Php764 million, according to
The Philippine Star.

Transco president and chief executive officer Alan Ortiz
confirmed around 50 interested parties have signified their
interest on the assets but the state-owned firm expects to close
only 10 to 20 deals within the year.

Transco recently made its biggest sale of sub-transmission
assets worth Php257.54 million to the South Cotabato II Electric
Cooperative (Socoteco II).

As of June 21 this year, Transco has firmed up the provisional
sale of 15 sub-transmission assets worth a total Php763.36
million.

The buyers were Angeles Electric Cooperative, Cabanatuan
Electric Cooperative, Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority, San
Fernando Electric Light and Power Co., Tarlac 2 Electric
Cooperative Inc., Aklan Electric Cooperative Inc., Bohol 1
Electric Cooperative Inc., Capiz Electric Cooperative Inc.,
Negros Occidental Electric Cooperative Inc., Visayan Electric
Co. Inc., North Cotabato Electric Cooperative Inc., Davao Light

Sultan Kudarat Electric Cooperative Inc. and South Cotabato 2
Electric Cooperative Inc.

NATIONAL TRANSMISSION: ERC's Failure Delays Revenues from Sales
---------------------------------------------------------------
Revenues from the sale of the National Transmission
Corporation's (Transco) subtransmission assets has yet to come
due to the regulator's failure to approve any of the 15 lease
purchase contracts signed by Transco, Today News reports.

The Energy Regulatory Commission's (ERC) approval of the
contracts is essential for Transco to turn over its assets to
its buyers and collect the payments due.

50 private distribution utilities and electric cooperatives have
already approached TRANSCO and expressed interest to acquire
subtransmission assets located within their respective franchise
areas.

"Amid these interests, what we hope will happen is that the ERC
will approve the contracts we have submitted for their
approval," Transco president Alan Ortiz said.

"We've raised almost a billion and yet nothing has been
approved."

"But, I think the ERC must have just been busy completing the
many requirements of other stakeholders in the power industry,"
he admitted.

Meanwhile, the Development Bank of the Philippines has opened a
lending window of up to Php50 billion, which private
distribution and electric cooperatives could tap for the
acquisition of subtransmission assets.


PACIFIC PLANS: SEC Says Rehab May No Longer Be Necessary
--------------------------------------------------------
The corporate regulator said Pacific Plans Inc. may no longer
need rehabilitation once the Court decided to re-incorporate
Lifetime Plans Inc. under its wing, The Philippine Daily
Inquirer reports.

The Makati Regional Trial Court on June 9 directed Pacific Plans
to submit financial documents of Lifetime with Pacific Plans.
The court's June 9 order laid the foundation for the Securities
and Exchange Commission (SEC) to eventually dismiss Pacific
Plans' petition for rehabilitation, because Lifetime's assets,
if Lifetime is folded back into Pacific Plans, may be enough to
cover Pacific Plans' liabilities.

In a supplemental comment, the SEC told the court that since
Lifetime no longer exists, the assets of Lifetime now pertain to
Pacific Plans.

Before the Company could submit the financial reports to the
court, Pacific Plans said it would have to wait for the SEC to
decide on Lifetime's motion to reconsider its order revoking
Lifetime's certificate of incorporation for failing to comply
with requirements to establish itself as a corporation.

Lifetime, which sells fixed-value educational plans, says it has
more than 400,000 plan holders.

Pacific Plans says it has 34,000 plan holders. About 16,000 of
these have filed educational claims for school year 2005-2006.
It has asked the Makati court to allow it to suspend payments
and go through rehabilitation, after it claimed it had run out
of cash.

* Fitch Says Philippine Scandal Won't Hurt Ratings
--------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings said Thursday it is comfortable with the recent
adjustment of its Philippine country outlook to stable from
negative despite the political controversy over allegations that
President Gloria Macapagal Arroyo cheated in last year's general
election, Dow Jones Newswires.

Fitch's senior director and head of Asian sovereign ratings
James McCormack said the rating agency's recent outlook revision
was based on improvements in the Philippines' fiscal policy. The
only way the rating will be affected is if the fiscal reform is
affected.

Mr. McCormack said he doesn't believe the political controversy
will result in a deterioration of the country's fiscal
situation.

Opposition and left-wing groups have been clamoring for Pres.
Arroyo to state whether she was among those in wiretapped
conversations that allegedly show she conspired with an official
to rig last year's election to ensure a one-million-vote margin.

Fitch revised its outlook for the Philippines' credit rating in
late May, after Pres. Arroyo signed into law changes to the
value-added tax, or VAT, legislation aimed at boosting revenue.

The new law will do away with most exemptions to the tax
starting July. In January 2006, the VAT rate will be raised to
12% from 10%, while the corporate income tax rate will rise to
35% from 32% until 2008. Corporate income tax will be reduced to
30% in 2009.

Fitch estimated in a June report the tax law will raise
additional revenue of Php80 billion.

Mr. McCormack said though global interest rates are rising, the
Philippines has met most of its borrowing requirements for this
year and shouldn't be overly affected by the high cost of credit
internationally.

Looking to possible credit risks, McCormack said Fitch will be
on the lookout for the "outside chance" that the new tax law
will be delayed by recent political developments.

CHINA AVIATION (S): To Establish Committee for PwC Report
---------------------------------------------------------
A special committee will be set up to look into a
PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) report on China Aviation Oil
(Singapore) Corp. Ltd. (CAO), relates Channel NewsAsia.  The
special committee would be comprised of representatives from
China and Singapore.

PwC was commissioned by the Singapore Stock Exchange (SGX) to
conduct a probe on the causes of CAO's massive losses.  CAO
shocked the market last year by revealing some US$550 million in
losses from betting on the future price of oil.

Five top CAO officials have been charged ranging from dishonesty
to insider trading.  The court allowed three directors to travel
freely until July 12 upon furnishing an itinerary.  They were
also ordered to report to the Commercial Affairs Department once
they are back.  On the other hand, the two remaining officials
were each given three weeks to prepare for their case.

"We are prepared to set up a special committee to study the
report. Then we will give our comments. We want to
comprehensively analyze the Company's risk management strategies
and management structure. This is to prepare ourselves
internally for the restructuring operations." Channel NewsAsia
quoted CAO Chairman Jia Changbin as saying.

UNITED FIBER: Clarifies Straits Times Article
---------------------------------------------
United Fiber System Limited (UFS) issued to the Singapore Stock
Exchange (SGX) a clarification to the article in The Straits
Times dated June 24, 2005, Money, Page H31. Headline: STI at 5
and one half-year high, set ablaze by oil plays. Written by Goh
Eng Yeow.

In the said article, a stock broking director was quoted as
saying that interest costs could easily run up to US$50 million
a year for the US$1 billion pulp mill project loan, which is
almost equivalent to UFS' total revenue of S$92.4 million last
year.

The Company would like to state that the development cost of the
proposed pulp mill is US$863 million.

The proposed pulp mill will be built by way of turnkey contract
(Contract) by China National Machinery & Equipment Import &
Export Corporation (CMEC) for a consideration of up to US$863
million. Under the Contract, CMEC is responsible for financing
80% of the development costs of the proposed pulp mill which is
equivalent to US$690.4 million (the Loan). Hence the Loan for
this project is up to US$690.4 million and not US$1 billion.

The subsidiary operating the proposed pulp mill under the pulp
division, PT Marga Buana Bumi Mulia (PT MBBM) is required to pay
CMEC an interest of 6% p.a. for the Loan. PT MBBM will not be
required to make any repayment (whether principal or interest)
on the Loan within the first 36 months of the construction of
the proposed pulp mill.

Thereafter, PT MBBM shall be required to make repayments (on
principal and interest) every 6 months after commencement of
commercial production. The pulp mill has an annual capacity of
600,000 air-dry tones and the average market trend pulp price is
US$520 per tonne.
