ANDERSON CINEMA: Ex-exec Gets AU$1.17-Mln Billing in Court
----------------------------------------------------------
Mr. Stephen Michael Anderson, of Ballarat in Victoria, has
appeared in the Melbourne Magistrates Court on three charges
brought by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission
(ASIC).

Mr. Anderson, a former director of the Anderson Cinema Group of
companies, is charged with two counts of obtaining a financial
advantage by deception involving AU$1.17 million and one count
of false accounting. The Anderson Cinema Group was placed into
receivership in March 2004.

The conduct relates to cinemas formerly operated by the Anderson
Group of companies at Sunbury and Melton in Victoria.

Mr. Anderson was not required to enter a plea. The matter was
adjourned for a committal mention hearing on 12 August 2005.

The matter is being prosecuted by the Commonwealth Director of
Public Prosecutions

The Anderson Group was put into receivership in March last year
and several key assets have been sold to other operators.

ION LIMITED: Jobs Plea to U.S. Importer
---------------------------------------
The possible rescue of jobs at the besieged manufacturer Ion
Limited are being held in the U.S., according to The Australian.

Premier Mike Rann is meeting executives of motorcycle maker
Harley-Davidson in Milwaukee to help shore up the future of
Ion's North Plympton facility, which has more than 670 workers.

Ion is Harley-Davidson's exclusive provider of light alloy
motorcycle wheels and also makes hubs and swing-arms for the
Company.

Mr. Rann said the Government was determined to help keep the
plant open, as Harley-Davidson is provides 75 percent of Ion's
major revenue.

In March, administrators for the parts maker hinted that some
400 employees would be laid off next month after failing to sell
the Company's Wingfield factory.

Workers were told the factory was losing AU$18 million a year,
although its North Plympton and Kilkenny factories would
continue to trade.

Mr Rann said he wanted to reassure Harley-Davidson of the
Government's strong support for Ion.

"Ion cannot afford to lose the Harley contract," he said.

"I will be urging Harley-Davidson to continue to back the North
Plympton workforce to that date and beyond."

Since an administrator was appointed, the quality of wheels Ion
produced continued to improve and was unrivalled elsewhere in
the world.

LUDGATES CORPORATE: ASIC Obtains Orders Against Promoters
---------------------------------------------------------
The Australian Securities and Investments and Securities
Commission (ASIC) has settled its action against Ludgates
Chartered Accountants, and its principals, Mr. Benjamin Paul
Whitehouse and Ms. Jennifer Martine Sisson.

The action relates to breaches of certain terms of an
enforceable undertaking provided in February 2000 by Ludgates
Corporate and Investment Advisory Services Pty Ltd (in
liquidation) (Ludgates Corporate), a licensed dealer, and
Ludgates Chartered Accountants (Ludgates Accountants), relating
to the promotion of managed investment schemes in breach of the
Corporations Law.

Mr. Whitehouse and Ms Sisson were also directors and authorized
representatives of Ludgates Corporate, which operated in Milton,
in Brisbane.

ASIC commenced proceedings in the Federal Court of Australia on
17 June 2003, following complaints from investors. In
particular, ASIC was concerned that:

(1) Ludgates Corporate, Mr Whitehouse and Ms Sisson had breached
the Corporations Law by providing improper investment advice to
clients of Ludgates Corporate and Ludgates Accountants in
relation to the Thomastown Property, Thomastown Mortgage, Shell
and Seed Schemes;

(2) Ludgates Corporate and Ludgates Accountants had not complied
with the February 2000 enforceable undertaking resulting in
losses to investors; and

(3) The assets of the Thomastown Mortgage Scheme were being
dissipated.

During the course of the proceedings in July 2003, ASIC obtained
consent orders appointing Mr. Greg Moloney of Ferrier Hodgson as
receiver over a property in Thomastown, Victoria, which was
associated with the Thomastown Mortgage Scheme. As a result of
the subsequent sale of the property, investors in the Thomastown
Mortgage Scheme obtained the return of their principal and a
substantial proportion of the outstanding interest owed.

The current settlement comprises an enforceable undertaking,
compensation to certain investors and both declarations and
banning orders from the Federal Court of Australia.

Court orders and declarations

Under the settlement that was considered by Justice Graham on 17
June 2005, the Court:

(1) Made orders banning Mr Benjamin Paul Whitehouse, a bankrupt
accountant from, either directly or indirectly, providing
financial product advice, dealing in financial products or
operating a registered scheme for a period of ten years;

(2) Ordered that Ms Sisson repay, by her insurer, the
$392,081.66 in investor's funds collected by Ludgates Corporate
and Ludgates Accountants in breach of the February 2000
enforceable undertaking;

(3) Declared that Mr. Whitehouse had made securities
recommendations in breach of the Corporations Law to a number of
clients of Ludgates Corporate and Ludgates Accountants. In
particular, the Court found that in providing the financial
advice to particular investors in relation the Thomastown
Property, Thomastown Mortgage, Shell and Seed Schemes, Mr.
Whitehouse had failed to either /or:

    (i) Give any proper consideration of the personal
information relevant to particular investors;

    (ii) Undertake adequate product research (securities
information) relevant to the particular scheme/s recommended;
and

    (iii) Give any, or any proper consideration to the
securities information relevant to the particular scheme/s
recommended.

(4) Noted the terms of an enforceable undertaking entered on 17
June 2005 between Ms Sisson and ASIC, in which she agreed not to
provide either directly or indirectly, financial product advice,
deal in financial products or operate a registered scheme for a
period of five years. A copy of this enforceable undertaking is
available from the ASIC website at www.asic.gov.au.
"ASIC will act to ensure that anyone who breaches an enforceable
undertaking, and deliberately continues to act in defiance of
that undertaking, is brought before the Courts. Further, we will
act to ensure that people who repeatedly fail to comply with the
law and are unfit to provide financial advice, are removed from
the industry," ASIC Executive Director of Enforcement, Ms. Jan
Redfern, said.

Background

Ludgates Corporate and Investment Advisory Services Pty Ltd (in
liquidation) was the holder of a Dealers License, and carried on
business in Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria. Ludgates
Corporate was placed into liquidation on 29 August 2003.

Mr. Whitehouse and Ms Sisson carried on a chartered accountants
business, known as Ludgates Chartered Accountants, in the same
areas.

Ludgates Corporate and Ludgates Accountants entered into an
enforceable undertaking on 29 February 2000 with ASIC due to
concerns that they were promoting closely related investment
schemes, known as the Seed Program and the Shell Program, in
breach of the managed investment scheme provisions of the
Corporations Law and without having a registered prospectus.

As part of this undertaking, Ludgates Corporate and Ludgates
Accountants undertook to cease:

(1) The promotion or furtherance of the Seed and Shell Schemes
or any similar schemes; and

(2) Collection of funds for investment in the Seed and Shell
Schemes or any similar schemes

MILLER'S RETAIL: In Joint Sale Talks with Warehouse Group
---------------------------------------------------------
Struggling retailers Miller's Retail Limited and Warehouse Group
Limited have confirmed they are holding talks about a possible
AU$300-million combined sale of their discount store operations
in Australia, The Australian reports.

New Zealand-based Warehouse reportedly approached Miller's with
a proposal to package their discount stores in Australia for a
single trade sale and has appointed investment bank Credit
Suisse First Boston to peruse the deal.

For Warehouse Group, this means the sale of about 130 outlets in
the eastern states, while for Miller's it represents the
transfer 300 Go-Lo and Crazy Clark's outlets. The combined
network of around 400 stores has been valued by some analysts at
up to AU$300 million.

According to The Australian, four private equity firms were
interested in the discount businesses of Warehouse and Miller's,
which are believed to be considering the possible packaging of
their discount variety operations in Australia for a single
trade sale.

Meanwhile, the two companies maintain that discussions are
preliminary in nature, stating that it is premature to speculate
on any outcome.

QANTAS AIRWAYS: PM Keen Considers Merger with Rival SingAir
-----------------------------------------------------------
The Australian Prime Minister Howard has raised the prospect of
a merger between Qantas Airways and Singapore Airlines, The
Australian reveals.

John Howard, who is struggling to resolve divisions over the
future of the Government's aviation policy, said he had
presented the merger idea to his Singapore counterpart, Lee
Hsien Loong, in a private conversation two weeks ago.

Singapore Airlines described the possible merger as an
"interesting" but complex idea.

The Government has shelved a decision on whether to allow
Singapore Airlines to fly on Qantas's most lucrative route
between Australia and the US while it considers policies for the
Australian carrier.

A merger or strategic alliance between Qantas and Singapore
Airlines would face significant hurdles from Australia's
competition regulator, which has concerns about whether the deal
would benefit consumers.

An alliance would allow Singapore Airlines access to the Pacific
route, but not under its own brand. Qantas could also get more
rights to fly out of Singapore, which it has wanted for some
time.

Singapore has courted Canberra for months to win access to the
Pacific and compete against Qantas and its existing competitor
on the route, United Airlines. Last week, Singapore Airlines
said a merger would face regulatory difficulties, and urged
Canberra to make a decision about competition on the Pacific
route.

SANTOS LIMITED: Awarded Egyptian Acreage
----------------------------------------
Santos Limited on Monday announced that it has been awarded an
exploration block in the Arab Republic of Egypt as aprt of a
joint venture with affiliates of Devon Energy Corporation
(Devon) and Teikoku Oil Company (Teikoku).

The joint venture, in which Santos has a 25% interest, has been
awarded the onshore North Qarun Block located close to Cairo in
the Gindi Basin of the Western Desert.

In total, the joint venture is committed to spend a minimum of
US$5 million (AU$6.5 million) over the first three-and-a-half-
year phase, drilling two exploration wells and acquiring and
processing seismic data.

This follows Santos' initial entry into North Africa with the
2004 farm-in into an eight-well exploration program, covering
three exploration blocks in Egypt with Devon Energy.

"The North Qarun block adds to Santos' growing international
portfolio of exploration acreage, further diversifying and
expanding our exploration options," said Santos Managing
Director, Mr. John Ellice-Flint.

"Importantly, it is close to existing oil and gas infrastructure
with spare capacity," he said.

Mr. Ellice-Flint said it was pleasing to be able to team up with
successful companies like Devon and Teiloku, which both have
excellent exploration credentials.

Santos expects the seismic program to commence late in 2005 with
the first of the exploration wells tentatively planned for 2007.

The interest holders in the North Qarun Block are:

Devon Energy North Qarun Ltd (operator)    50%
Santos Egypt Pty Ltd                       25%
Teikoku Oil Co., Ltd                       25%

Santos Limited's participation is trhough its wholly-owned
subsidiary Santos Egypt Pty Lts, in joint venture with wholly-
owned subsidiaries of Devon Energy Corporation and Teikoku Oil
Company.

KWONG HING: Four Former Executives Face Jail Term
-------------------------------------------------
Four persons, including a former executive director of public
listed Kwong Hing International Holdings (Bermuda) Limited
(Kwong Hing), were on June 25 jailed by a District Court judge
for their respective roles in a bribery scam in relation to the
purchase of Kwong Hing shares and the publication of a research
report of the listed Company, reports the Independent Commission
Against Corruption.

Mr. Li Man-tak, 37, former executive director of Kwong Hing, was
sentenced to three years' imprisonment.

Three other co-defendants namely Mr. Nicholas Tan Chye-seng, 31,
former executive director of UBS AG (UBS); Mr. Louis Lin Chak-
pui, 35, former director of SBI E2-Capital China Holdings
Limited (SBI E2); and Mr. Adrian Foo Tiang-hock, 34, former fund
manager of ING Investment Management Asia Pacific (HK) Limited
(ING), were each jailed for two years.

The court also ordered to forfeit bribe monies in the sums of
$591,000, $1.2 million and $800,000, respectively received by
Mr. Lin, Mr. Foo and Mr. Tan.

In sentencing, Judge Sweeney said this case, involving insider
dealings, was difficult to detect, and that the court had to
impose deterrent sentences in order to maintain a level playing
field in the financial market.

Mr. Li and Mr. Tan were earlier found guilty on one count of
conspiracy to offer advantages to an agent, while Mr. Li was
further convicted of a similar offence.

Mr. Lin and Mr. Foo had pleaded guilty to one joint charge of
conspiracy to offer advantages to an agent. Lin also pleaded
guilty to a similar offence, while Mr. Foo admitted one count of
accepting an advantage as an agent.

The court heard that in July 2003, Mr. Li came to know Mr. Foo,
at the time a fund manager of ING, through Lin and Vincent Yum,
who were then respectively a director and a senior vice
president of SBI E2.

They agreed that Foo would use ING's fund to take up 15 million
shares of Kwong Hing.

In return, Mr. Li would offer an advantage equivalent to the
difference between the market price and $0.92 per share for 3.8
million shares of Kwong Hing, which was to be shared by Mr. Lin,
Mr. Foo and Mr. Yum.

It was also agreed that Foo would use ING's fund to buy an
additional 3.8 million shares of Kwong Hing, which Li would
realize for paying the advantage.

Between August and December 2003, Li, on three separate
occasions, paid Yum a total of about $1.8 million, the court
heard.

On February 25, 2004, Mr. Li, in the presence of Lin, gave Yum
another $594,500, being the balance of the advantage, outside a
parking complex in Central.

After the trio was arrested by ICAC officers, the $594,500 bribe
payment was recovered from Yum. A piece of paper recording the
total bribe payments amounting to about $2.39 million was also
seized from Mr. Lin.

The court also heard that in September 2003, Mr. Li, having
acquainted with Mr. Tan through Yum, asked Tan to write a
favorable research report on the shares of Kwong Hing.

Mr. Li promised to pay an advantage, equivalent to the
difference between the market price and $1.38 per share for 10
million shares of Kwong Hing. The advantage was to be shared by
Mr. Lin, Mr. Foo, Mr. Tan and Mr. Yum.

Through Mr. Yum, Mr. Li subsequently paid Mr. Tan $1 million as
an advance payment.

On February 12, 2004, Mr. Tan caused UBS to publish a favorable
report in relation to Kwong Hing shares.

The prosecution was today represented by David Fitzpatrick,
counsel on fiat, and assisted by ICAC officer Aman Chee.

MANSION HOUSE: SFC Reprimands Firm for FRR Breaches
---------------------------------------------------
The Securities and Futures Commission (SFC), in a press release,
reprimanded and imposed a disciplinary fine of $450,000 on
Mansion House Securities (F.E.) Limited (MHS) under the
Securities and Futures Ordinance (SFO).

MHS breached section 6 of the Securities and Futures (Financial
Resources) Rules (FRR) by failing to maintain the required
liquid capital between October to December 2003.

MHS offered up to 90% financing to finance clients' initial
public offering (IPO) applications. However, MHS failed to take
these loans into account when calculating and compiling their
FRR returns. The failure to account for the impact of the loans,
gave rise to a liquid capital shortfall, leading to MHS's
failure to comply with the FRR. MHS were unaware of its failing
to maintain the required liquid capital until it was pointed out
by the Intermediaries Supervision department of the SFC.

The breaches were subsequently rectified when the application
money for unsuccessful applications was refunded.

MHS did not have an adequate internal system in place to ensure
compliance with FRR and an employee inexperienced with FRR was
responsible for compiling the FRR returns. The responsible
officers were also unaware of the requirement to include IPO
financing when computing liquid capital.

In deciding the level of fine, the SFC considered the
Disciplinary Fining Guidelines (Note 1) and all the
circumstances of the case including the fact that:

i) The breaches of the FRR were unintentional;

ii) The absence of an adequate internal system within MHS
regarding FRR and the ignorance of its responsible officers;

iii) No loss or damage was suffered by clients, the public, or
market users;

iv) MHS's previous disciplinary record (Note 2); and
MHS co-operated with the SFC's investigations.

Mr. Alan Linning, SFC's Executive Director of Enforcement, said:
"Compliance with the Financial Resources Rules is essential in
order to protect investors. It is a fundamental requirement that
companies have in place internal systems to ensure compliance.
MHS did not have a system nor employees with sufficient
knowledge to ensure compliance. The SFC will not tolerate lack
of internal control which may lead to breach of rules".

RENREN HOLDINGS: Proposes Capital Reorganization
------------------------------------------------
The Board of Directors of Renren Holdings Limited proposes the
capital reorganization, which involves the following:

(i) The consolidation of every 100 Shares of HK$0.01 each
(issued and unissued) into one Consolidated Share of HK$1.00;

(ii) The reduction of the issued share capital of the Company by
canceling paid-up capital to the extent of HK$0.99 on each of
the issued Consolidated Shares so that the nominal value of each
issued Consolidated Share will be reduced from HK$1.00 to
HK$0.01, and the transfer of the credit arising from such
reduction to the contributed surplus account of the Company;

(iii) The cancellation of the entire amount standing to the
credit of the share premium account of the Company and the
transfer of the credit arising there from to the contributed
surplus account of the Company; and

(iv) The sub-division of each authorized but un-issued
Consolidated Share into 100 Adjusted Shares.

As at the date of this announcement, the authorized share
capital of the Company is HK$300,000,000 divided into
30,000,000,000 Shares of HK$0.01 each, of which 8,202,373,585
Shares are in issue and fully paid or credited as fully paid,
and there is no outstanding convertible note issued by the
Company. On the assumption that no further Shares will be issued
after the date of this announcement and up to the effective date
of the Capital Reorganization, a credit of approximately
HK$81,203,498 will arise in the books of the Company as a result
of the cancellation of the paid-up capital of HK$0.99 on each
issued Consolidated Share.

Based on the audited financial statements of the Company for the
year ended December 31, 2004, a credit of approximately
HK$534,185,000 will arise as a result of the cancellation of the
entire amount standing to the credit of the share premium
account of the Company. A total credit of approximately
HK$615,388,498 will arise from the Capital Reduction and Share
Premium Cancellation and will be transferred to the contributed
surplus account of the Company. The Board proposes to apply part
of the amount transferred to the contributed surplus account of
the Company to set off and eliminate entirely the accumulated
losses of the Company, which amounted to approximately
HK$608,111,000 as at December 31, 2004.

Fractional Adjusted Shares will not be issued to individual
Shareholders but will be aggregated and, if a premium (net of
expenses) can be obtained, sold for the benefit of the Company.

INDOFOOD SUKSES: Sets Aside IDR15 Bln for Dividend Distribution
---------------------------------------------------------------
Indonesian noodle manufacturer PT Indofood Sukses Makmur plans
to distribute 39% of its 2004 net profit (IDR149.25 billion) in
dividends, reports Asia Pulse.

The Company's 2004 profit was 37% lower than the previous year.
It was posted at IDR378.1 billion. According to management, the
decrease was due to losses in the foreign exchange, which
amounted to a whopping IDR296.94 billion.

Company president Anthony Salim said the management would repay
its debt in foreign currency, in order to avoid more losses in
the foreign exchange this year. The Company is expected to have
a strong performance and increase this year's net profit
twofold.

The Company reported a slight rise in sales for January to
March 2005 at IDR4.29 trillion, compared to IDR4.23 trillion for
the same period last year. However, the increase was offset by
higher sales costs at IDR3.21 trillion from lat year's IDR3.10
trillion. The Company's operating profit also fell 12% from
IDR548.83 billion to IDR482.94 billion.

Indofood Sukses plans to sell a stake in its flour unit,
Bogasari Flour Mills, in order to reduce debt and expand its
operations.

KIANI KERTAS: To Be Sold Off to JP Morgan Consortium
----------------------------------------------------
Troubled pulp and paper Company PT Kiani Kertas will be sold off
to JP Morgan Chase & Co. for IDR1.93 billion, AFX News reports.

According to an unnamed source of Bisnis Indonesia, the
Company's parent firm, PT Energi Nusantara signed a memorandum
of understanding with JP Morgan on June 23, 2005, and the deal
will be completed this month.

Under the deal, JP Morgan would take over the Company's IDR1.7
trillion debt to state-owned Bank Mandiri. Kiani Kertas also
owes IDR1.16 trillion to a consortium of creditors, led by JP
Morgan and Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation.

In 2002, Bank Mandiri and PT Anugra Capital Investama gained
control of Kiani Kertas' IDR8 trillion debt assets from now-
defunct Indonesian Bank Restructuring Agency, and PT Energi
Nusantare acquired the Company's entire stake from Anugra
Capital.

Company secretary Agus Suprayogi hopes that the deal would
enable the paper firm to increase production from 300,000 tons
of paper last year to 500,000 tons. This way, it would be able
to repay its debts. He did not confirm, however, whether the
consortium led by JP Morgan would take over the firm, only that
they are in the last stages of finalizing the takeover deal.

The Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport has
issued a warning to Mitsubishi Fuso Truck & Bus Corporation for
delaying the submission of a recall report for a truck which it
belatedly recalled in March after trying in vain to fix it in

the second recall report earlier than April because the truck in
question developed a spate of mechanical troubles, including a
fire, even after the initial recall.

TOSHIBA CORPORATION: New Boss Pushes to Unify Formats
-----------------------------------------------------
Toshiba Corporation President Atsutoshi Nishida has vowed to
unify the Company's HD-DVD and Blu-Ray formats, Recorder World
reports.

Seemingly dismissive of reports in the media last week that both
Toshiba and Sony were abandoning talks, Nishida said in an
interview with Kyodo News, "we will continue efforts...for the
sake of users."

The newly appointed President stated that the problem of having
two next-generation DVD formats should not be ignored because of
the near-sighted policies of both sides and offered an olive
branch to Sony by saying that the companies "should deepen
technological studies so as to realize a unification as the best
format".

DAEWOO GROUP: Former Execs Want to Acquire Affiliates
-----------------------------------------------------
In a bid to keep the Daewoo brand intact and prevent drain of
national wealth, former Daewoo Group executives are keen on
buying the defunct group's surviving affiliates, The Korea
Herald reports.

Daewoo units that were rescued after the group collapsed in 1999
will be auctioned this year and next. They include Daewoo
Capital Corp., Daewoo Precision Industries Co., Daewoo
Engineering & Construction Co., Daewoo International Corp.,
Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co. and Daewoo
Electronics Corp.

Many ex-Daewoo officers reportedly appear to be considering
participating in the takeover of former Daewoo companies through
the formation of private equity funds.

The former executives, however, are taking cautious steps
especially after a recent move by creditors of Daewoo
International aimed at stopping it from taking over management
rights at Daewoo Precision.

They also remain watchful against those who would like to link
their moves with ex-Daewoo chairman Kim Woo-choong's wish for
comeback. Mr. Kim returned home and was arrested two weeks ago
after spending five years in self-imposed exile.

The defamed chairman is now facing a possible jail sentence for
misappropriating funds that led to the collapse of the Daewoo
empire.


DAEWO0 GROUP: KAMCO Bars Ex-boss from Retaking Group Firms
----------------------------------------------------------
The state-run Korea Asset Management Corp. (KAMCO) said it will
not allow the former chairman of Daewoo Group to re-acquire the
remaining Daewoo companies, Yonhap News reports.

Former fugitive and Daewoo group chairman Kim Woo-choong, who
was arrested on charges of accounting fraud, an any parties
representing him will be barred from taking part in the upcoming
bids for Daewoo affiliates now under state management.

KAMCO is scheduled to sell off a number of former Daewoo Group
firms, including Daewoo Engineering & Construction Co., Daewoo
Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering Co., and Daewoo
International, to private investors through open bidding,
starting late this year.


DAEWOO SHIPBUILDING: Sale to Local Buyer Likely
-----------------------------------------------
Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering is expected to be
sold to a local buyer very soon, says The Financial Express.

The South Korean government reportedly keen on unloading its
controlling stake in the shipbuilder, which has made a comeback
from the failed Daewoo Group.

The sale is expected to generate billions of dollars and offer a
chance for domestic private equity groups to secure a big
purchase.

The sell-off would mark another step in the restructuring of the
former Daewoo affiliates, following the recent sale of Daewoo
Heavy Industries and Machinery, the defense and engineering
group, to a local power equipment maker.

HYNIX SEMICONDUCTOR: Ready to Let Go of Creditors' Grip
-------------------------------------------------------
Hynix Semiconductor recently reaped around US$500 million
through its bond offering in New York, according to The Korea
Times.

Although the proceeds of the overseas bond issuance was US$250-
million shy of the original target, it was enough for the
chipmaker to be released from its creditor-led debt workout
program possibly next month.

Hynix, which has been under lenders' control since 2001, had
planned to raise US$750 million overseas to help repay its debts
earlier than scheduled and regain management control from its
creditor banks.

Now the memory chipmaker will be able to use a total of US$1.25
billion, which consists of the US$500 million raised abroad and
US$750 million raised domestically, to repay a majority of
US$1.5 billion of debt ahead of maturity which falls in December
next year.

On June 17, the firm obtained US$1.3 billion in syndicated loans
from five financial institutions, namely the Korea Exchange Bank
(KEB), Chohung Bank, Woori Bank, Korea Development Bank and
Citibank Korea. As the syndicated loans will mature in five
years, the Company will have enough time to fully recover
financial health.

Hynix creditors are reportedly thinking of terminating to the
chipmaker's debt workout due to its good performance in the last
two years.

INTERPHIL LABORATORIES: Losses Surge on Weak Sales, Higher Costs
----------------------------------------------------------------
Toll drug manufacturer Interphil Laboratories Inc. plunged
deeper into red due to dwindling production volumes brought
about by sluggish demand and higher costs, BusinessWorld
reports.

The Company saw its losses balloon 350.3% to Php65.02 million
this quarter from Php14.44 million.

First-quarter income from sales and services fell 5.72 percent
to Php390.8 million from Php414.5 million. Total material sales
dropped 16 percent, while services dropped 10 percent.

Meanwhile, loss from operating activities doubled to Php13.25
million from Php7.1 million and operating expenses jumped 15.25
percent to Php41.49 million driven by higher overtime costs,
incremental cost of power, fuel costs, supplies and repairs and
maintenance.

The Company intends to generate additional revenue through the
new pricing scheme that started in December 2004 and from the
additional services rendered for clients including stability,
pilot batches and product registration.

It also expects to reduce operating costs through cost reduction
measures such as freeze on hiring of personnel and reduction in
training costs.

Interphil's principal activities are manufacturing, processing
and packaging of drugs, chemicals, pharmaceuticals, and
veterinary products. At 31-Dec-2002, the Company operates in 3
plants, with 2 manufacturing facilities located in Canlubang and
a minor operation in Sucat,Muntinlupa. Its manufactured products
are exported through its clients to Taiwan, China, Hong Kong,
Malaysia, Australia and New Zealand.

LIFETIME PLANS: SEC Snubs Motion for Reconsideration
----------------------------------------------------
The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has denied Lifetime
Plans Incorporated's petition for reconsideration regarding the
its cancellation of the pre-need provider's Certificate of
Incorporation, reports The Manila Bulletin.

The Company, a spin-off of Yuchengco-owned Pacific Plans Inc.,
said it was very disappointment over the corporate regulator's
decision. Lifetime claimed it has strong legal grounds against
the order of revocation.

In a statement, the Company said it will file an appeal on SEC's
latest decision.

Late last week, the SEC denied Lifetime's petition to have its
Order of Revocation lifted because of lack of merit. The
corporate regulator said it sees no valid reason to reverse its
previous ruling revoking the certificate of registration of
Lifetime.

The SEC cancelled Lifetime's certificate of registration due to
the failure of the Company to submit on time sufficient
documents pertinent to the approval of its registration. These
included the submission of proofs of collection of receivables
and the transfer of ownership of transportation equipment from
its mother company, Pacific Plans, Inc.


MAYNILAD WATER: Due Diligence Set to Begin
------------------------------------------
Interested investors will begin their due diligence on debt-
saddled unit Maynilad Water Services Inc in two weeks,
BusinessWorld reports.

Maynilad receiver Rosario Bernaldo, reported Monday that DMCI
Holdings Inc. and Manila Water Co. will start their respective
due diligence exercises on Maynilad in two weeks.

The Quezon City Regional Trial Court approved early this month
Maynilad's rehabilitation plan which would involve Benpres
Holdings' divestment of all its shares in the water
concessionaire in favor of the government.

The latest development is good news to Benpres, which expects to
return to profitability and cut its debt this year after it
writes off its investment in Maynilad.

Benpres would be writing off Php3.06 billion in equity and 621
million in advances made to Maynilad.

Benpres expects to book a net profit of "at least" Php1 billion
this year by reversing provisions for probable losses made in
previous years for its investment in Maynilad. These provisions
total Php1.4 billion.

NATIONAL BANK: Lucio Tan to Bid for Gov't Shares
------------------------------------------------
Tycoon Lucio Tan has reportedly advised the Department of
Finance of his intention to exercise his rights of first offer
with respect to the government's shares in the Philippine
National Bank (PNB), The Philippine Daily Inquirer reports.

According to the Finance Department, the Lucio Tan Group has the
right to match the highest bid received from third parties in
the public auction to be conducted in August by exercising its
right to first offer.

The government has set a floor price of Php43 per share for its
joint sale, together with Tan, of at least 67 percent of the
PNB, the country's fifth largest bank by assets. The floor price
was based on the PNB valuation undertaken by ING Bank NV, the
government's financial adviser for the planned share sale.

The government and Tan each own 45 percent of PNB.

The bank, which is under rehabilitation for five years until
2007, has projected a net profit of about Php600 million this
year from Php353.3 million in 2004 on the back of its strong
overseas remittance business and the sale of non-performing
assets.

NATIONAL TRANSMISSION: OKs Deferred Payment Scheme for Assets
-------------------------------------------------------------
The National Transmission Corporation (Transco) and the
Philippine Economic Zone Authority (PEZA) has agreed on a
deferred payments scheme for the latter's acquisition of
Transco's sub-transmission assets (STAs) in Cavite, The
Philippine Star reports.

Transco also granted the same scheme to the Manila Electric
Company (Meralco), PEZA's chief contender for the Cavite
facility.

"PEZA and Meralco have yet to iron out their differences as to
who will operate the STAs. PEZA does not appear to be inclined
to give up that vital line. They're thinking of owning and
maintaining it themselves. They have the right of first refusal
because it is within their franchise area," said Transco
president Alan Ortiz.

PEZA hosts industrial estates in Dasmarinas and Rosario, Cavite.
Currently, its electricity requirements are provided by power
distributor Meralco. While Meralco wants to continue controlling
the Dasmarinas-Rosario transmission lines in Cavite despite
incurring huge losses. PEZA is covered by the Meralco franchise
area.

Meralco had also earlier informed Transco of its intention to
purchase the STAs through a deferred payment mode stretched into
several years.

Under Republic Act 9136 or Electric Power Industry Reform Act of
2001, Transco is mandated to sell its STAs or those assets with
capacity of 69 kilovolt (kV) and below, the distribution
utilities and electric cooperatives.

Transco has offered the said assets to electric cooperatives via
the lease purchase-financing program.

Under this scheme, electric cooperatives will be allowed to give
a down payment equivalent to just 20 percent of the selling
price of these sub-transmission assets, with the balance to be
spread out via installment in a period not exceeding 75 percent
of the remaining life of the assets.

PHILIPPINE TELEGRAPH: Moves ASM Schedule to Sept. 30
----------------------------------------------------
Per Resolution of the Board during its Special Meeting held on
June 23, 2005, the Annual Stockholders' Meeting of Philippine
Telegraph and Telephone Corporation (PT&T) scheduled on July 29,
2005 has been reset to September 30, 2005.

The Resolution of the Board is hereby quoted as follows:

"Resolved, that the Annual Stockholders' meeting of the Company,
scheduled on July 29, 2005 be as it is hereby, postponed to
September 30, 2005, in view of the need for additional time
within which to complete the Company's audited Financial
Statements for Fiscal year ending 2004."

About PT&T

Philippine Telegraph & Telephone Corp. (PTT) has grown through
the years to become the country's dominant record carrier and
leading provider of leased voice and data channels. It offers
the most comprehensive package of telecom services ranging from
telephony to high-speed voice, data and sophisticated video
technologies.

The Company operates a nationwide telecommunication network,
which includes more than 400 retail outlets throughout the
country for telegraphy and long distance telephony. Although
telegraphy, like telex services which the Company dominated in
the 70s and 80s, is perceived as a "sunset" product, variations
are continuously being developed and introduced, such as gift-
accompanied social telegrams; money transfers; and very
recently, e-business derivatives like "e-Sulat" and "e-Store" in
the new Click & Call stations.

Today, however, the revenue contribution of the aforesaid
traditional services (i.e., telex and telegraph) have been
surpassed by LEC operations despite the reduced number of
subscribers. The Company has 30,000 post-paid and pre-paid LEC
subscribers in Region IV_A which account for over 50% of
revenues. These are derived from monthly subscription fees and
domestic and international long distance calls albeit under
increasingly ruinous competition.

PRYCE CORPORATION: Earmarks Php80-Mln for 4 Memorial Parks
----------------------------------------------------------
Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) distributor Pryce Corp. has
allotted around Php80 million this year to construct four new
memorial parks in Mindanao, according to The Philippine Star.

The Company decided to go back to its original property
development business and focus on the development of memorial
parks following the divestment of its real estate properties.

Construction of these memorial parks is expected for completion
within the year.

Newly appointed Pryce President Nilo Ezequiel said the new parks
will be relatively smaller than those already operated by the
Company. The Company currently has six big memorial parks. It is
also looking at building another four memorial parks next year
to meet the growing demand.

The construction of the projects will be funded by the proceeds
of the sale of the remaining real estate properties of the
Company, mostly located in Cagayan, Davao and Iligan.

CHARTERED SEMICONDUCTOR: To Pay Off Debts Through Shares Sale
-------------------------------------------------------------
Chartered Semiconductor Manufacturing plans to sell new shares
or issue bonds to pay off its debts, reports Business Day.

The firm, a contract supplier of made-to-order microchips,
expects to raise as much as SGD904 million by the end of 2005.

The Company issued convertible bonds in 2001 that were worth
SGD962.5 million, which are due in April 2006. It also made a
rights offering worth SGD1.05 billion that was heavily
undersubscribed in 2002. It also secured loans from several
banks such as Sumitomo Mitsui Bank and the Bank of America to
finance its latest and most advanced factory.

According to Chief Executive Officer Chia Song Hwee, the Company
may need to refinance its convertible bonds, even though it is
liquid enough to continue operating until next year. Securities
analyst Rohan Suppiah said that the Company would most likely
sell new shares in order to reduce its debt-to-equity ratio,
which is expected to reach 110% in December, as compared to 50-
60% last March.

NATURAL PARK: Prosecutors Let Suspects Off the Hook
---------------------------------------------------
A former managing director of Natural Park Plc (N-Park) and a
businesswoman have averted criminal proceedings after public
prosecutors decided to withdraw charges against the two, The
Nation reports.

In August this last year, the Securities and Exchange Commission
(SEC) lodged before the Special Investigation Department (SID) a
criminal complaint, accusing ex-director Thosapong Jaruthavee of
misappropriating assets and rightful benefits of the embattled
N-Park to give to Sawang Mankongcharoen. Ms. Sawang was accused
of aiding and abetting.

The prosecutors' move came after the SID concluded that case
against Mr.  Thosapong should be pursued, but that against
Ms.Sawang should be dropped since she was only an investor in
the Company. The circumstances of the case were such that
dropping the charges against a key suspect made it inappropriate
to proceed against others.

In 1999, N-Park and its subsidiaries restructured debts of
THB11.1 billion in a deal with the state-owned Asset Management
Corporation. The restructuring agreement gave N-Park the right
to repurchase assets from the AMC at a later date.

The SEC claimed Mr. Thosapong later transferred the right to
repurchase the assets to DCH Co, a Company founded by Ms.
Sawang, without notifying Natural Park's directors or
shareholders.

PACIFIC ASSETS: Unveils Board Meeting Resolutions
-------------------------------------------------
Pacific Assets Public Company Limited would like to notify the
resolution of the Board of Directors Meeting No. 10/2005 held on
June 25, 2005 at 3:00 p.m. as follows:

Agenda 1
Resolved to approve the minute of the Board of Directors Meeting
No. 9/2005.

Agenda 2
Resolved to approve the offer to purchase the assets from
Natural Park Public Company Limited (Natural Park) at Book Value
on the date of transaction incurred.  The details are as
follows:

        1. Common share of Natural Hotel Siam Company Limited,
the owner of Siam Hotel and Service Apartment (Siam) project,
750,000 shares or 75% of shares issued.

        2. Common share of Natural Hotel Panwa Company Limited,
the owner of Panwa Beach Resort Phuket (Panwa), 2,999,994 shares
or 100% of shares issued.

        3. Land, construction, fixture, furniture and assets
related to the Chedi Chiengmai Hotel (Chedi) from Natural Real
Estate Company Limited, the owner of Chedi Chiengmai Service
Apartment with 994 shares or 100% of shares issued.

The Board of Directors hereby authorize the executive committee
or any persons authorized by the executive committee to
negotiate, sign in related documents and agreements or any other
actions necessary to negotiate and give consent on the purchase
of assets from Natural Park.

However, the purchase of assets has to be under the following
conditions:

        a) The Company will purchase assets at Book Value at the
transaction incurred.

        b) Due diligence will be conducted as appropriate for
the purchase of assets and the purchase of assets have to be
approve by the shareholders meeting of the Company and approve
by the Board of Directors and shareholders meeting of Natural
Park in accordance with related law and regulations of the Stock
Exchange.

The offer to purchase assets from Natural Park may or may not
happen.  The success of the transaction depends upon the above
conditions.

The purchase of mentioned assets is initiated by the Chairman of
the Company (Dr. Srisook Chandrangsu), which mentioned that the
Company should mainly focus on hotel business and to become a
leader in the hotel industry in Thailand.  This would prepare
the Company to face economic fluctuation that may incur in the
future, including intense business competition.  Thus, the
Company will strategically invest in major tourist attractions
of Thailand and will expand customer base to include various
prices by not depending on only one location or customer.

Therefore, the Company should have additional hotel project
whereby the Company has considered the hotel project of Natural
Park, a major shareholder of the Company, because of its high
quality projects that are located in main tourist attractions
such as Bangkok, Chiengmai and Phuket and obtain customers
ranging from 4 - 5 star.

Therefore, the Company has offered to purchase such assets from
Natural Park at Book Value, which should mutually benefit both
companies.  The Board of Directors agree with the offer of the
Chairman of the Company that the Company will recognize
operating revenue in the short-run from Panwa and Chedi project.
Panwa and Chedi has completed the construction and will operate
soon, whereas, Siam will recognize revenue within approximately
2 years.

The offer to purchase assets from Natural Park is connected
transaction.  For the fairness to minor shareholders of the
Company, Natural Park will not vote in this agenda in the
shareholders meeting of the Company.

Agenda 3
Resolved to approve the sale of assets of the Company to
interested investor.  The assets are as follows:

        1. Pantip Court Building
        2. One and Two Pacific Place
        3. Le Royal Meridien Baan Taling Ngam, and
        4. Le Royal Meridien Phuket Yacht Club (Selling Assets)
at the price of THB3,220 million.

The Board of Directors hereby authorize the executive committee
or any persons authorize by the executive committee to
negotiate, sign in related documents and agreements to
Arrangers, Coordinator and interested investor, or any other
actions necessary to negotiate and give consent on the sale of
assets to such interested investor.  However, the sale of
assets has to be under the following conditions:

        a) Interested investor will purchase the all of the
assets and can not purchase either one of the assets at the
aggregate price of THB3,220 million.

        b) Interested investor will conduct due diligence as
appropriate and the purchase of assets will have to be approved
by the shareholders meeting of the Company in accordance to
related laws and regulations of the Stock Exchange.

Nonetheless, the sale of assets may or may not happen.  The
success of the transaction depends upon the above conditions.

The sale of assets come from the concept proposed by the
Chairman of the Company, which mentioned that the Company should
mainly focus on hotel business and to become a leader in the
hotel industry in Thailand.

The Company will strategically invest in major tourist
attractions of Thailand and will expand customer base to include
various prices by not depending on only one location or
customer. Thus, the Company has considered selling assets that
are not related to hotel business.

Therefore, if there are interested investors that would like to
purchase such businesses at a reasonable price, the Company
should consider selling it.

Currently, the interested investor would like to purchase Pantip
Court Building and One and Two Pacific Place under the condition
at they will also purchase Le Royal Meridien Baan Taling Ngam
and Le Royal Phuket Yacht Club.

The Board of Directors perceive that the sale of Pantip Court
Building and One and Two Pacific Place is a strategic move for
the Company in terms of revenue and risk reduction.  However,
the sale of two other hotels, if the price is reasonable, it
should not affect the Company in the long-run.

Agenda 4
Resolved to approve the appointment of Siam City Securities
Company Limited as Independent Financial Advisor to give opinion
on the acquisition and disposal of assets, reasonableness and
benefit of the transaction, the fairness of price and
participated in the shareholders meeting, and other
responsibility as required by law.

The remuneration can be considered by the executive committee.

Agenda 5
Resolved to approve the determination of the date of the
Extraordinary General Meeting of Shareholders No.1/2005 on July
29, 2005 at 1.00 p.m. The place of the meeting will be notified
in the Invitation Letter. The meeting will consider the
following agenda:

        1. To consider and certify the Minutes of the Annual
General Meeting of Shareholders No. 20
        2. To consider approving the offer to purchase assets
from Natural Park Public Company Limited
        3. To consider approving the sale of assets of the
Company to the interested investor
        4. Other matters (if any)

Agenda 6
To approve the closing of the Share Register Book to suspend the
transfer of shares of the Company for exercising the right to
attend the Extraordinary General Meeting of Shareholders from
July 11, 2005, at noon, until the Extraordinary Meeting of
Shareholders is duly adjourned.

Please be informed accordingly.


Sincerely Yours,
Pacific Assets Public Company Limited

THAI PETROCHEMICAL: Planned Share Sale Hits Snag
------------------------------------------------
Thai Petrochemical Industry PCL's (TPI) proposed sale of TPI
Polene Plc (TPIPL) shares is likely encounter problems in the
next few weeks since only a small number of investors have
signified their interest in the divestment, The Bangkok Post
reveals.

The debt-restructuring team, set up by the Finance Ministry to
manage TPI's US$2.7-billion debts, insisted that the sale be
completed by the end of July. Investors and even investment
bankers, however, feel the deadline could be very difficult to
meet.

But Mr. Pala Sookawesh, a one of TPI's debt planners, stressed
the team is set to sell the shares by the end of next month
regardless of who will buy them.

"It is not the business of TPI, to be in the cement business and
we intend to lower the debts (of TPIPL) through the sale," Mr.
Pala said.

Under the debt-restructuring scheme, TPI would auction its 249
million shares in TPIPL to generate enough money to trim its
debts. The planners have hired Kim Eng Securities Plc as their
adviser in the transaction.

TPI Polene is currently controlled and managed by Prachai
Leophairatana, the founder of both TPI and TPI Polene.

Although, TPIPL is among the best cement plants globally
according to most major cement players, not many firms are
looking to enter the bidding war for the 31-percent stake being
put up for sale.

Mr. Prachai has said that his family, which now controls about
250 million shares of TPIPL, had no intention to bid for TPI's
holding.
