CENTRAL PARK: Collapse Costs 71 Jobs
------------------------------------
Games station retailer Central Park Interactive has seen the end
of its operations, according to The New Zealand Herald.

The 12 Central Park Interactive stores in Auckland, Hamilton,
Wellington, Christchurch and Dunedin closed on Friday with the
loss of 71 full-time and part-time jobs.

Auckland publisher Barry Colman's Liberty Holdings acquired full
ownership of the retail chain in March 2004.


CREASY'S GRAIN: Collapses on Heavy Debts
----------------------------------------
Grains trader Creasy's Grain Enterprises has fallen into the
hands of administrators Friday due to huge debts, ABC Premium
News has learned.

The Company is believed to have owed creditors in New South
Wales, Queensland and Victoria around AU$15 million to AU$25
million.

Mel Binnington from the Queensland Agricultural Merchants
Association said Creasy's going into administration was a shock.
He said growers are now anxious if their money is going to be
safe.

Administrators are set to meet this week to decide the future of
the Company, which was started in Mangoplah in 1971. Creasy's,
based in southern New South Wales, operates grain storage and
trading facilities in Queensland and Victoria. Administrator Tom
Javorsky from Jones Condon says growers and transporter
companies are among the 200 unsecured creditors.

"I believe there may be a number of people that are interested
in acquiring the Creasy's business, obviously if it can be sold
for a reasonable sum of money then there may be something left
over for the remaining unsecured creditors," he said.

"But if the receiver managers aren't able to dispose of the
assets or realize a reasonable sum then the unsecured creditors
will not get a dividend."

DORAN CONSTRUCTIONS: IMF Provides Appeal Result
-----------------------------------------------
IMF (Australia) announced that the appeal by Doran Constructions
(in liquidation) was dismissed, Aspect Huntley's ComNews Digest
relates.

The company advised that the capitalized costs of about
AU$155,000 will be written off with IMF's exposure to an adverse
costs order of about AU$335,000 being dependent on whether Doran
appeals successfully to the High Court.

The company added that although this outcome is not material,
IMF remains committed to informing the market in respect of
investments that may generate revenue of at least AU$500,000.

EG GREEN: To Re-open Abattoir Despite Big Debt
----------------------------------------------
EG Green and Sons aims to operate its Harvey abattoir next week
despite its AU$44-million debt to National Australia Bank (NAB)
and other creditors, The West Australian reports.

Ferrier Hodgson administrator Martin Jones said he was hopeful
the embattled firm's Harvey abattoir would be wound up and
operating by the time its 500-strong workforce is due to return
to work by Monday next week.

Mr. Jones said he expected the backlog in the beef industry
caused by the closure to clear quickly once the abattoir was re-
opened.

On August 12, EG Green was forced by its creditors to suspend
trading and temporarily shut down its Harvey facility. On Friday
last week, Company directors opted for voluntary administration
after talks with the firm's bankers and West Australia's
agriculture minister Kim Chance.

EG Green's administrator said he will be meeting with producers,
union representatives and providers of labor this week to
address critical issues. However, he said he could not guarantee
that the firm's entire workforce will be retained.

EG Green, West Australia's biggest meat processor, owed NAB
AU$20 million and unsecured creditors around AU$24 million.

The administrator said he believed the abattoir had the cash
flow to fund itself and that it he did not expect NAB to extend
a new line of credit for it to resume production.

The first meeting of the company's creditors would be held in
Perth next Friday but a full evaluation of the company's value
would not be complete until some time after that.

EMPEROR MINES: Seeks Support of Loan Deal with DRDGOLD
------------------------------------------------------
The Board of Directors of Emperor Mines Limited on Monday urged
all shareholders to participate in the upcoming company meeting
at which approval will be sought for certain elements of a Loan
Agreement which the Company has entered into with DRD (Isle of
Man) Limited (DRD).

A Notice of Meeting has already been sent to Emperor
shareholders for the meeting, which is to be held on August 29,
2005. The purpose of the meeting is to seek shareholder approval
to the Conversion Rights contained in the Loan Agreement which
permit DRD to convert outstanding amounts into ordinary fully
paid shares in the Company. The Independent Directors of Emperor
have advised they consider that the approval of the Conversion
Right would be in shareholders' best interests and accordingly
they have urged shareholders to vote in favor of the resolution.

This shareholder vote in one of the most important in the
history of Emperor Mines. In particular, the Board of Directors
believes shareholders should be aware of the negative financial
impact on Emperor should this resolution not be approved. The
negative financial impacts result from the need to meet ongoing
banking covenants and "going concern" requirements.

As previously advised the Company's loss for the full year
ending June 30, 2005 was expected to be greater that AU$18
million. Unaudited results confirm a loss of AU$18.5 million
from ordinary activities after income tax and before exceptional
items. Further the Board has resolved, as a result of recent
poor performance and continuing high oil prices, to impair the
value of its mining assets by AU$15.2 million thereby reducing
consolidated net asset value from AU$42.8 to AU$27.8 million and
increasing the loss referred to above to AU$33.7 million.

The Loan provided by DRD is for an amount of AU$10 million of
which Emperor has already drawn AU$4.7 million. As a related
party DRD is excluded from voting on the resolution to be
considered this meeting.

The Board of Directors believe that it is important to confirm
that this resolution does not bestow upon DRD the right to
exercise the convertible loan beyond 3% in each 6 month period
without further shareholder approval, which may be sought
separately at a later date. In essence, the approval sought at
the 29 August meeting is to satisfy ASX Listing Rule
requirements in relation to the convertible nature of the Loan
Agreement.

This resolution does not result in the issue of new shares to
DRD. If in the future DRD sought to convert outstanding amounts
due under the Loan Agreement into shares of the Company (beyond
3% in each 6 month period) it would need to return to Emperor
shareholders for further approval at that time.

If the resolution is not approved Emperor may have serious going
concern issues as DRD will be entitled to serve a notice on the
Company suspending all future advances on the expiration of 60
days and requiring repayment of the loan no earlier than 270
days from the date of the Meeting.

The Directors believe this shareholder vote is vital for the
continued operations of the Company and urges all shareholders
to attend or vote by proxy at the meeting on 29 August 2005.

EVANS & TATE: Cancels Payout as Loss Tipped to Double
-----------------------------------------------------
Evans & Tate (E&T) has broken its promise to pay a final
dividend after a blowout in its write-downs doubled its expected
annual loss to at least AU$11 million, relates The West
Australian.

The troubled winemaker's shares plunged 18 per cent last week as
the company surprised investors by revealing it had slashed even
more off the value of its wine stocks and warned of more write-
downs when its results are released next month.

E&T said it had nearly doubled the write-down on its bulk wine
inventory to AU$16.5 million from the AU$8 million to AU$10
million it forecast on June 28 when it flagged a loss of AU$4.5
million to AU$7.5 million.

The blow-out was blamed on a dramatic fall in global bulk wine
prices since June and followed a revised independent valuation
of E&T's wine stocks by Adelaide-based Colin Gaetjens & Shaw.

However, the revision took the industry by surprise, with wine
insiders claiming that while a glut of grapes had depressed
prices for bulk wine, prices had not markedly deteriorated in
the past two months.

Debt-mired E&T has been under scrutiny since revealing in June
that it had hired insolvency firm KordaMentha's turnaround
consultancy under the urging of its biggest creditor, ANZ, which
is owed an estimated AU$100 million. Last month, the bank agreed
to provide E&T with AU$10 million in working capital to tide it
over while the company restructured, but only on the condition
that Mr. Tate step down.

The winemaker also revealed last week that the consultancy, 333
Performance Management, had warned that E&T's AU$4.3 million
write-down on the Oakridge Vineyard in Victoria may not go far
enough.

JAMES HARDIE: Says No Australian Exit For Now
---------------------------------------------
James Hardie Industries is not planning to exit its Australian
operations for now, but said it will not rule out doing so in
the future, Sydney Morning Herald.

Chief Executive Louis Gries indicated the possibility of the
company one day leaving Australia was one of a number of
sticking points as it finalizes an asbestos compensation deal.

He admitted that early last year the James Hardie directors had
considered leaving Australia as one of a number of options under
discussion.

The company is in negotiations with the NSW government as they
work towards signing a deal to compensate victims of asbestos
products James Hardie used to manufacture.

Mr. Gries said the remaining sticking points were around setting
up the deal to cover the next 40 years.

PENNY & LANG: Former Supplier Makes Move to Kyneton
---------------------------------------------------
The biggest supplier of meat to the former Penney & Lang
Abattoir at Carisbrook has been forced to move to Kyneton after
the abattoir shut down Monday last week, ABC News Online
reports.

The abattoir is now up for sale, after it went into voluntary
administration last month.

A director of Penney and Lang Wholesalers, Darren Curtis, says
the move from Carisbrook could put a strain on farmers supplying
the company. He says he is worried they may take their business
elsewhere.

"I think that's a big worry. I think pretty much most of them
will stick with us and see if it works for them," he said.

"It's a bit like us killing over here - we've got to see whether
it can work for us and so far so good and hopefully we can make
it work. It's an extra 4,000 to 5,000 lambs a week and an extra
300 to 400 cattle a week."

Penny & Lang creditors are set to conduct a second creditor's
meeting today to decide whether to liquidate the business.

Penny & Lang has been a valuable competitor at southern
saleyards, killing about 7000 lambs and sheep and 400 cattle a
week. Its abattoir is not connected to Penny & Lang Meat
Wholesalers. It is a separate company that continues to trade.

QANTAS AIRWAYS: Travelers Are In for Another Surprise
-----------------------------------------------------
Qantas Airways will undertake substantial job cuts and slap
travelers with higher ticket levy to offset an expected AU$1.2
billion blowout next year in the price of aviation fuel, reports
Courier Mail.

Staff was told of the job cuts Friday last week during a meeting
between the Qantas unions and airline officials.

Qantas explained that fuel would account for 30 per cent of next
year's operating costs. Last year the fuel component was 19
percent.

The job cuts and the fuel cost fears were at odds with results
the carrier released Friday. Qantas reported an unexpected 18
percent profit rise, well above analysts' projections. The
airline reported an after-tax profit of AU$763.6 million to June
30, up AU$115.2 million on last year.

But Qantas chief executive Geoff Dixon declared that hard
decisions had to be made. Job cuts would occur across the
38,000-strong workforce, of which more than 93 percent are based
in Australia.

Two weeks ago, the carrier announced a decision to retrench 200
senior managers. On Friday last week, Mr. Dixon would not rule
out shifting more jobs offshore, as the airline did earlier by
opening a London crew base for 400 flight attendants earlier
this year.

On fuel levies Mr. Dixon said an increase would be announced in
the coming days.

Staff cutbacks and other changes already announced would leave
Qantas in a much stronger position financially when fuel prices
fall.

SONS OF GWALIA: Founders Deny Negligence Accusations
----------------------------------------------------
The founders of failed Sons of Gwalia Limited have denied
allegations they have acted negligently and breached their
duties leading to the miner's downfall, Courier Mail relates.

A report into the AU$1-billion collapse by Ferrier Hodgson
released Friday said that founders Peter and Chris Lalor, along
with executive director Eardley Ross-Adjie, in its opinion had
acted negligently in the lead-up to the group's collapse last
year.

A spokesman for the Lalors, David Griffith, denied the claims
and said the report was neither fair nor balanced. Mr. Griffith
also questioned why the administrators leaked the report to two
media outlets before creditors or the Lalors had received it.

Ferrier said it had issued writs against the company's auditor
Ernst & Young, the Lalor brothers and Mr. Ross-Adjie, claiming
damages of AU$567 million, but said that figure had not been
finalized.

Ferrier said a failed exploration program, a bungled
acquisition, the short life of some gold projects and costs
arising from allegedly unauthorized trading activities all
contributed to the corporate collapse.

With total liabilities above AU$1 billion, shareholder claims
totaling AU$40 million look small in comparison.

Some shareholders are claiming Sons of Gwalia displayed
misleading and deceptive conduct and that they are entitled to
compensation.

Listed litigation fund IMF is representing about 400
shareholders hoping to be declared creditors. IMF managing
director Hugh Mclernon said the gravity of the problems at the
company strengthened the shareholders' case.

A court hearing will be held at the end of the month to decide
if shareholders will be declared creditors.

Creditors will be asked to vote on a deed of company arrangement
by the end of this month.

Meanwhile, the Australian Securities and Investments Commission
(ASIC) confirmed last week it had been looking into the affairs
of the Perth gold miner for six months.

Once one of Australia's most respected miners, Sons of Gwalia
called in administrators in August last year after discovering
it might not have enough gold to meet hedge commitments and
finance its foreign exchange exposure.

WESTBUS: Joint Venture Eyes AU$106.7-Mln Acquisition
----------------------------------------------------
A joint venture of an Australian and a Singapore-based Company
is looking to acquire the failed Westbus Group for AU$106.7
million, according to the Sydney Morning Herald.

Cabcharge Australia and ComfortDelGro are willing to fund the
acquisition in cash from various firms by the end pf September.

Most companies in the Westbus Group, which operates almost 25
percent of New South Wales bus services, have been in voluntary
liquidation since January this year.

Taxi charge card service provider Cabcharge will hold 49 percent
and ComfortDelGro will hold 51 percent of the new joint venture,
ComfortDelGro Cabcharge Pty Ltd.

In its first full year under the new structure, Westbus is
projected to generate revenue of around AU$110 million and
earnings before interest tax, depreciation and amortization of
around AU$18 million.

Cabcharge Executive Chairman Reg Kermode said the acquisition
will provide a platform for a major expansion of its operations.

ComfortDelGro, on the other hand, said the acquisition would
assist the firm to boost offshore revenues to around 50 percent
in the next four to six years from 37 percent currently.

MAGICIAN INDUSTRIES: Clarifies Cash Flow, Lawsuit Report
--------------------------------------------------------  
Reference is made to the results announcement of Magician
Industries (Holdings) Limited published on The Standard on July
25, 2005 in relation to the results of the Company for the year
ended March 31, 2005 wherein the auditors of the Company have
given a qualified opinion of the Company's financial statements.

At the request of the Stock Exchange and to keep the public and
the shareholders informed on the matters therein, the Company
hereby clarifies and announces as follows:

(a) Legal actions by the creditors of the Company

It was reported in the Results Announcement that certain
creditors of the Group have taken legal actions to recover
overdue balances totaling approximately HK$34 million, and that
some of the creditors have also applied to the court in the PRC
to freeze certain plant and machinery and bank balances, and
foreclosure orders have been obtained in relation to the same.
Such legal actions have not been previously announced as the
management during the course of such proceedings considered that
the claims of each individual legal action was insignificant,
when considered separately, when they were individually compared
to the Group's then net asset value. These actions were
commenced separately by different parties sporadically and were
spread out in various months starting from July 2004.

Despite the foreclosure orders, the Group has been able to
continue the use of such plant and machinery and the day to day
production operation has not been affected as no action has been
taken by the creditors to enforce the foreclosure orders. In the
meantime, the Board is negotiating with the creditors for
settlement and seeking additional funding from various sources.
The Board considers that if the execution is enforced by the
creditors in respect of the foreclosure orders, the plant and
machinery subject to such orders would be seized and become out
of use by the Company. The Company will have to outsource
certain production operations to other manufacturers in the
short term. Notwithstanding the above, the management confirms
that the Group is carrying out a sufficient level of operations
and have tangible assets of sufficient values.

As shown in the Results Announcement, turnover for the year
ended March 31, 2005 was about HK$445 million, and was
comparable to the previous year end of about HK$470 million. In
addition, the Group has a net asset value of about HK$97
million.

At present, the Group has a very tight cash flow position given
the results of the PRC legal actions and the overdue balances.
However, the Board is of the view that such position would be
improved given that new orders received since July has gradually
resumed to normal as compared with the average monthly orders
received in the first six months this year, and the Board
anticipates that new orders would at least maintain at such
level in the coming months given the Group's effort in
successfully expanding its customer bases in various overseas
markets (the U.S., Canada, Australia, Italy and the U.K.) and
the development of new products to high-margin OEM customers.

Further, the Board has been taking steps to improve the current
cash flow position by seeking various sources of additional
funding including disposing certain of the non-core office units
in Hong Kong, non-essential assets in the PRC (such as excessive
inventories and idle assets), and through equity and debt fund
raising exercises; obtaining continuing support from creditors
and banks by renewing existing loan facilities, extending
repayment dates and negotiating for additional credit
facilities; obtaining new short-term loan secured on the Group's
leasehold land and buildings located in Hong Kong (a sum of
HK$15 million has been obtained subsequent to the balance sheet
date); implementing an incentive bonus scheme to reward
successful debts collection from the domestic sales customers;
and implementing measures in cost-cutting and strengthening of
internal controls especially in the procurement and production
cycles.

The Board undertakes to keep the investing public informed,
among others, of the cash flow position and status of debt
repayment from time to time by way of further announcements.

(b) Long-term borrowings

It was reported in the Results Announcement that a half-yearly
installment repayment of HK$4,855,000, which was due in March
2005, was fully settled subsequent to the balance sheet date.
With regards to an installment repayment which will become due
in the coming September, the Board is still negotiating with the
bank to postpone the repayment date in order to relief the cash
flow pressure the Company is currently facing. If such extension
of repayment could not be made, the Company will face a more
hostile cash flow pressure, and the Company will have to seek
further and additional sources of funding as stated above.

(c) Impairment loss

It was reported in the Results Announcement that an impairment
loss of about HK$75 million for the property, plant and
equipment (PPE) with carrying value of about HK$323 million at
balance sheet date was made by the Group which the auditors were
unable to form an opinion.

In order to assess the value in use of the PPE, the Company has
provided a cash flow forecast to the auditors for assessment.
The auditors considered that there is no concrete basis for such
cash flow forecast, in view of the unsatisfactory performance of
the Group during the last financial period. The basis of the
management in such impairment loss recognition are (a) for land
and building, the difference between the indicative value stated
in the valuation report and their book value, (b) for certain
machineries not in use, provision for their full book value and
(c) for equipment idle for over 1 year, provision for their full
book value.

(d) Books and records

It was reported in the Results Announcement that certain books
and records of the Company have been misallocated. The Board
wishes to clarify that those records should have been located at
local level of sales and marketing units in the PRC.

The Board considers that due to the high turnover of staff at
local level in the PRC, some of these records were mislocated.
Full provisions have already been made to the matters in
relation to such misallocated books and records. The Board has
been taking steps to recover the same, if possible, and new
measures to improve records keeping at these local levels.

For clarity purpose, the Board confirms that the books and
records of the Group, which are required to be kept under
various provisions of the Laws of Hong Kong are properly kept.

(e) Provisions of doubtful debts

As reported in the Results Announcement, the Group has a
discrepancy of the provision of about HK$41 million of doubtful
debts. The Board has taken steps to clarify such discrepancy and
is expected to report its preliminary findings in due course.

MAGICIAN INDUSTRIES: Unveils Director Resignations
--------------------------------------------------
Magician Industries (Holdings) Limited (0526) announced the
resignation of several directors:

Mr. Chan Chun Hing and Mr. U Keng Tin have resigned as executive
director and independent non-executive director of the Company
respectively with effect from April 19, 2005. Mr. Lee Kwan Hung,
Eddie has resigned as independent non-executive director of the
Company with effect from April 23, 2005. Mr. Yau Sui Ki,
Christie has resigned as non-executive director of the Company
with effect from April 25, 2005. Mr. Lee Lok Man and Mr. Leung
Ka Cheuk have resigned as non-executive directors of the
Company, both with effect from April 27, 2005. Mr. Peter A. Lee
has resigned as executive director of the Company with effect
from May 10, 2005. Mr. Lau Chi Kit, Edwin has resigned as non-
executive director of the Company with effect from August 17,
2005.

In relation to their resignations, Mr. Chan Chun Hing stated
that there are a number of issues regarding management,
corporate governance and internal control of the Company that he
wanted to bring to the attention of the Stock Exchange. The
Company, however, had not been informed of any further details
thereof. Mr. U Keng Tin stated that he has disagreements with
the Board concerning the Company's lack of corporate governance,
proper records filing, internal controls and audit trails that
need to be brought to the attention of the shareholders of the
Company and the Stock Exchange. Mr. Lee Kwan Hung, Eddie stated
that he has disagreement with the Board on issues regarding
management, corporate governance and internal control of the
Company and these are matters that need to be brought to the
attention of the shareholders of the Company and the Stock
Exchange.

The Board has been following up on the issues raised by Mr. Lee
Kwan Hung, Eddie, Mr. Chan Chun Hing and Mr. U Keng Tin and
concluded that, save as to the matters contained in this
announcement, those issues were either unsubstantiated, resolved
or have been superceded by subsequent events. The Stock Exchange
is still looking into the matters complained by the outgoing
directors and reserve the right to request the Company to
further clarify any outstanding issues.

Mr. Peter A. Lee, Mr. Yau Sui Ki, Christie, Mr. Lee Lok Man, Mr.
Leung Ka Cheuk and Mr. Lau Chi Kit, Edwin have confirmed that
they have no disagreement with the Board and there are no
matters that need to be brought to the attention of the
shareholders of the Company and the Stock Exchange in relation
to their resignations. They resigned as directors of the Company
due to their personal reasons. The existing management therefore
considered it unnecessary to discuss with any one of them on the
details of their personal reasons for their resignations.
Further, the Board considered it would be more conducive to
investigate the issues raised by the other three resigned
directors at that time.


MAGICIAN INDUSTRIES: Appoints Audit Committee Members

DIRGANTARA INDONESIA: President Faces Jail for Negligence
---------------------------------------------------------
Aircraft maker PT Dirgantara Indonesia (PT DI) president Edwin
Soedarmo is likely to go to jail for two months as his appeal to
a local district court following his sentencing was rejected,
reports the Jakarta Post.

On Jan. 14, 2005, the Bandung District Court sentenced Mr.
Soedarmo to two months' incarceration for failing to obey an
order from the Committee for the Settlement of Labor Disputes to
distribute severance pay of over IDR400 billion to 5,700
displaced PT DI workers, who never received the payment.

Due to prolonged financial Company troubles, 6,500 PT DI workers
were laid off; 5,700 workers accepted the downsizing, while 800
workers refused to accept and field an appeal with the Supreme
Court.

After the verdict, Mr. Soedarmo had filed an appeal with the
Supreme Court, but such was rejected as the Supreme Court would
not intervene in cases where the defendant was sentenced to less
than 12 months' imprisonment.

The case was sent back to the local district court, which in
turn rejected it, since the defendant had been proven guilty of
disobeying orders from the Committee for the Settlement of Labor
Disputes, as well as failure to appear in court.

PERTAMINA: Plans Bond Sale to Raise Working Capital
---------------------------------------------------
State oil and gas firm PT Pertamina is planning a bond sale next
year in order to raise at least IDR5 trillion to improve working
capital and finance its oil imports, Reuters News reports.

Bisnis Indonesia quoted Pertamina director Alfred Rohimone as
saying that the minimum amount of the bonds, whichl are slated
to be issued early next year, is IDR5 trillion. However, the
Company has yet to select the underwriters for the bond sale.

Even though Pertamina is a member of the Organization of
Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC), it imports crude oil due
to problems in production and the lack of newer oil wells, aside
from the recent oil shortage in the country.

PERTAMINA: To Supply Natural Gas to State Power Firm
----------------------------------------------------
State oil company PT Pertamina will team up with state-owned
Medco Energi International and Chinese firm Petrochina Co. to
sell flared natural gas to state power firm PT Perusahaan
Listrik Negara (PLN), reports the Jakarta Post.

According to the report, the three firms will sell 7 million
cubic feet of natural gas from a gas field in Mudi, East Java,
for USD1.1 million (IDR11 billion) per British thermal unit to
PLN. The Company will then use the flared gas to replace diesel,
allowing it to save up to IDR7 billion in monthly operating
costs.

Perusahaan Listrik is affected by an ongoing gas shortage in the
country, hence it cannot provide enough power to industries and
businesses, leading to power outages in certain areas of
Indonesia.


PERUSAHAAN LISTRIK: Plans to Compensate Clients for Blackout
------------------------------------------------------------
State-owned power firm PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN) plans
to compensate 5.5% of its customers that were affected by a
recent power outage of over three hours in Java.

In a statement, the Company said that they would compnesate 475
customers, who are eligible to receive a 10% reduction in their
power bill for the next month. The bill cuts are expected to
reach a total of IDR3.5 million. PLN president Eddie Widiono
Suwondho said that the Company will compensate those firms whose
quality of serivces declined as a result of the blackout, adding
that companies who have suffered blackouts that were 10% above
standard had the right to receive such compensation.

A glitch in the Company's transmission line for the Java-Bali
grid caused a 1.5 and 12-hour blackout in the islands of Banten,
Jakarta & Java.

According to PLN, 2.21 million people in West Java and Banten
suffered blackouts; around 293,235 customers would be
compensated with an amount of IDR876 million.

Around 30 international and domestic flights were delayed at the
Soekarno Hatta International Airport, a state railway
firmsuffered IDR200 million in losses from the cancellation of
68 services, and up to 35 textile firms in Jakarta suffered an
estimated IDR105 billion due to the blackout.

FUJITSU LIMITED: Servers Going to Europe, U.S.
----------------------------------------------
Fujitsu Limited will sell servers that have various
communication functions, including router and fire-wall
capabilities, in the United States and Europe next year, The
Japan Times reports.

The company expects sales of its IPCOM series of servers to
reach JPY10 billion over the next three years, a threefold
increase from the current figure, the report said.

The servers, to be priced at an average of JPY2 million yen
each, stand out in terms of lower energy consumption and compact
size.

The company recently launched the devices in Southeast Asia,
including the Philippines and Indonesia, through its Singapore
subsidiary.

In a company statement, it posted first quarter consolidated net
income of JPY2.4 billion (US$23 million), an improvement of
JPY14.3 billion over the net loss recorded in the first quarter
of fiscal 2004. In addition to the increase in operating income,
a gain on the settlement of HDD-related litigation contributed
to this result.

MITSUBISHI FUSO: Recalls 41,548 Trucks

trucks to fix a part connecting the engine and transmission, the
Associated Press reports.

MITSUBISHI MOTORS: Australia Posts FY04 AU$600-Mln Loss
-------------------------------------------------------
Mitsubishi Motors Australia Ltd. posted a AU$588 million loss in
fiscal 2004, versus a net loss of AU$18 million a year earlier,
The Advertiser reports, citing MMAL President Tom Phillips.

The carmaker was able to cut its operating loss by more than
half with the shutdown of its Lonsdale engine plant.

The results show:

1) About AU$95 million went on retrenchment payouts for the
1000 jobs lost between the Lonsdale and Tonsley Park
plants.

2) Almost AU$80 million was spent on research and development
projects for which the outcomes have been cancelled,
including work on the PS41L (a long wheelbase version of
the 380), which was eventually scrapped.

3) AU$320 million of plant and equipment - including some
purchased for the PS41L - has been written off.

4) Mitsubishi Motors Corporation funded MMAL's write-off
costs and they do not sit as debt for the local
subsidiary.

Mr. Phillips said there was a logical story behind the
significant financial loss.

"We are extremely confident that we are returning to the black
this year," he said. "We're tracking quite healthily and that's
before the 380 gets launched."

TOSHIBA CORPORATION: To Boost Flash Memory Output by 150%
---------------------------------------------------------
Toshiba Corporation may boost its monthly output capacity of
flash memory chips by 150 percent to become more competitive in
the growing market, according to Reuters.

The company said it may increase the processing capacity at its
jointly owned NAND flash plant in Mie prefecture, central Japan,
to 100,000 300-mm silicon wafers a month from a planned 10,000
wafers in September 2005.

Combined with Toshiba's NAND output capacity at its 200-mm wafer
plant, also in Mie prefecture, its total NAND flash production
capability would come to the equivalent of 150,000 300-mm wafers
per month, up from 60,000 wafers next month.

A Toshiba spokesman said its 300-mm NAND plant, jointly owned
with U.S.-based SanDisk Corporation, has space to increase
monthly output to 100,000 wafers but that a decision on when to
increase capacity would be made according to market conditions.

In a company statement, The company's income (loss) before
income taxes and minority interest was minus JPY3.6 billion
(minus US$32 million), down by JPY3.9 billion from the year-
earlier period. The net loss widened by JPY1.1 billion from the
same period a year ago to minus JPY8.9 billion (minus US$80
million).

DOOSAN GROUP: Stocks Nosedive as Conflict Heats Up
--------------------------------------------------
The feud between Doosan Group's Ex-chairman and brothers took a
toll on its construction arm, reports The Korea Times.

Doosan Industrial Development suffered a 10-percent stock price
plunge in the past month, following its admission of inflating
profits by KRW279.7 billion between 1995 and 2001 by
manipulating accounting books.

On Friday last week, the construction firm's closing share price
plummeted from KRW6,540 to KRW5,900.

The brother's brawl was considered the key factor of the share's
plunge since Doosan Industrial has secured combined backlog of
construction orders worth some KRW8 trillion.  The current stock
price of Doosan Industrial Development falls far short of the
market consensus target price of between KRW7,500 to KRW8,000.

Other Doosan Group units such as Doosan Infracore and Doosan
Heavy Industries experienced a plunge in shares by six and nine
percent respectively.

Doosan Corp. shares remained virtually stagnant at KRW14,900
from KRW14,600 on July 20, but considering that its stock was
gaining more momentum in late July, reaching its peak closing
price of KRW17,100 on July 28, its stock value sagged
considerably after the window dressing confession made by its
sister construction firm on August 8.

The Korea Ratings hinted a downward revision of Doosan
Industrial Development's credit rating.  According to the rating
agency, the construction firm's financial health is forecast to
take a turn for the worse following the acknowledgment of the
accounting fraud.

Not only are Doosan Group's unit affected, company executives as
well-experienced distress by the ongoing power struggle between
the brothers. The alienated brothers are drawing lines between
friends and foes, setting Doosan top executives against each
other, regardless of their intentions.

An intra-office message sent Doosan Group's president of public
relations and Doosan Bears Kim Jin denouncing the ex-chairman
for defaming the conglomerate's reputation in an intra-office
message.

"The ex-chairman, who has dedicated his whole life to the Doosan
Group and served as chairman for nearly 10 years, has damaged
Doosan's reputation," Mr. Kim wrote.

Doosan Industrial Development president Kim Hong-koo was also
faced with a problem regarding a message posted on the bulletin
board of the intra-office Web site.

"I did not write the lines that read ex-chairman Park ordered me
to pay the interests of the loans personally raised by owner
family members (to participate in the rights offerings by Doosan
Industrial Development)," Mr. Kim said.

The former Doosan Group chairman filed a lawsuit against his
younger brother, Park Yong-sung right after being sacked from
the chairmanship. However, the ex-chairman's dismissal is
pending shareholder approval in September.


YOOKYOUNG FOUNDATION: To Hold Auction Early Next Month
------------------------------------------------------
The Yookyoung Foundation office is holding an auction on
September 5, The Dong-A Ilbo reveals.

Cho, a former advisor to the foundation, applied to the Seoul
Eastern District Court for approval of the foundation's auction.
Items up for bidding are the foundation science hall and culture
hall, appraised at around KRW12.145 billion.

Mr. Cho filed a lawsuit when a conflict transpired in the
foundation.  The lawsuit was about the calculation of the
deposit of the rent contract for the parking lot and swimming
pool he rented from 1997 to 2001.

The foundation won the first trial, but the Seoul High Court
ordered the foundation to pay Mr. Cho KRW500 million. Mr. Cho
submitted an auction application to court based on this ruling.

However, the auction will most likely be unsuccessful despite
gaining approval and the foundation only has to pay Mr. Cho the
KRW500 million or entrust the same amount with the court to keep
the building in its hands.

BENPRES HOLDINGS: Sells Debt to Avenue Asia
-------------------------------------------
Avenue Asia Capital Group has bought the debts of Lopez-
controlled Benpres Holdings Corporation, according to The
Philippine Star.

Avenue Asia, the partner of Union Bank which lost to taipan
Lucio Tan in a bid for a 67-percent stake in Philippine National
Bank (PNB), is also a major holder of Bayantel's US$200-million
bonds. It is an international fund that acquires distressed
banking assets, which earlier bought Php2.4 billion of the non-
performing loans of the Bank of Philippine Islands (BPI).

It is not immediately known how much of Benpres' debts was
acquired by Avenue, but a highly placed source from the Benpres
group has confirmed that Avenue has indeed bought the debts of
the Lopez holding firm.

Benpres has around AU$548 million in debts. The amount is
expected to be reduced to around US$400 million following the
return of unit Maynilad Water Services' water concession to the
government, which will remove its guarantee on US$145 million in
debts of Maynilad.

The Lopez-led group earlier reported a net loss of Php1.36
billion in 2004. It expects the return to profitability and a
cut in its outstanding debt to US$403 million this year, from
US$546 million, after writing off its investment in Maynilad.
The latter has around Php10 billion in total debts that are
guaranteed by Benpres.

Benpres has also said that it will also sell some of its prime
assets to help ensure cash flow and cut down its debt. These
will include its interests in Manila North Tollways Corp. (MNTC)
that operates the 84-kilometer North Luzon Expressway, in
Medical City, and Bayan Telecommunications (BayanTel).

COLLEGE ASSURANCE: Bucks Immediate Takeover Move
------------------------------------------------
Ailing pre-need firm College Assurance Plans Philippines Inc.
(CAP) has evaded a regulator's takeover after complying with a
requirement by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), The
Manila Times has learned.

CAP submitted late Friday to the corporate watchdog an eight-
year recovery plan to pay the tuition of its plan holders.

Along with the plan, the company's executives also submitted a
position paper opposing the show-cause order issued by the SEC
en banc, the commission's highest decision-making body.

The commission would have been forced to create a management
committee for the takeover of the preneed firm's management, had
CAP failed to submit the documents.

CAP executives said they are preparing nearly Php21 billion to
implement the plan that will cover the tuition of 720,000
beneficiaries who bought its traditional education plan.

CAP said the Php21 billion is enough to guarantee the full
payment of planholders' tuition and to address the trust-fund
deficit. CAP will raise the money from a buildup of assets in
the trust fund, the sale and development of real-estate
properties and the sale of Metro Rail Transit bonds.

The embattled pre-need provider said it is in talks with
potential investors, including a Lichtenstein-based group and
lawyer Romeo Roxas. But the Company said it will not rely on a
white knight to infuse additional capital and resolve its
liquidity problems.

CAP has been plagued with financial woes since last year's
actuarial valuation showed its trust fund was deficient by
billions of pesos. Several committees created by the commission
have leaned on taking over the company, leading to the
regulator's issuance of a show-cause order.

Still, CAP has bucked the takeover move, urging the commission
to respect a receivership case pending in court.

COLLEGE ASSURANCE: Wants to Hike Capital to Php20.8 Bln
-------------------------------------------------------
College Assurance Plans Philippines Inc. (CAP) is looking to
raise its capitalization to Php20.8 billion over a period of
eight years, The Philippine Star reports.

The capital build-up forms part of the business recovery plan
submitted by the pre-need firm to the Securities and Exchange
Commission (SEC) Friday last week to address its liquidity
problems.

The build-up program will include conversion of assets to equity
which would be added to the trust fund, generation of interest
income from loan programs, raising dividend income and securing
fresh equity from interested investors.

CAP will also institute cost-cutting measures to enhance
operating efficiency and contain its liabilities.

CAP legal counsel Deogracias Fellone of the Poblador Bautista &
Reyes law offices said firm is also considering filing for
corporate rehabilitation should the need arise.

Mr. Fellone said CAP will do whatever it takes to prevent the
SEC from taking over management of the pre-need firm.

CAP maintains that no sufficient ground exists for the creation
of a management committee considering that the alleged
violations of the pre-need rules being relied upon by the SEC do
not show that there is an imminent danger of dissipation, loss,
wastage or destruction of assets or other properties or
paralyzation of business operations which are the only legal
grounds to justify such management committee.

Aside from the uncontrolled tuition fee increases brought about
by deregulation, CAP blamed the SEC's "adamant and erroneous
application of the Pre-Need Uniform Chart of Accounts (PNUCA)
since 2002" as the reason for its trust fund deficiencies.

The pre-need provider also pointed to the SEC's refusal to renew
CAP's dealer's license as the reason behind its failure to
secure additional funding.


NATIONAL BANK: Subsidiaries Post Profits for First Half 2005
------------------------------------------------------------
The Philippine National Bank's (PNB) remarkable profitability
performance is mirrored even by its subsidiary and affiliate
companies.

As of the first half of 2005, the financial conglomerate's
domestic subsidiaries continued to post gains, exceeding tight
targets set for the year.

As of end-June 2005, PNB General Insurers Co., Incorporated,
PNB's non-life insurance firm, netted an unaudited income of
Php64.3 million, edging out by 19% its target for the 6-month
period of Php54.1 million. For the whole of last year, PNBGen
achieved an audited net income of Php112.96 million, 30% higher
than 2003 `s Php86.7 million.

PNBGen President Jose B. Zuniga attributes PNBGen's performance
to "improved net underwriting income derived from its low claims
loss ratio." As a result, PNBGen boasts of a very high rate of
return on equity, which is considered among the best in the
industry. In 2004, PNB Gen achieved an 18% ROE. A wholly owned
subsidiary of the bank, PNB Gen's product lines include fire,
marine, motor car, surety, casualty, engineering and accident
insurance.
PNB Gen ranks among the top 5 non-life insurers in the country
in terms of profitability and capitalization. There are about
100 non-life insurers in the Philippines.

PNB Capital and Investment Corporation also contributed to the
group's coffers as it booked a net income of Php22.75 million
for the first semester of the year.

PNB Cap is the investment house subsidiary of PNB which provides
investment banking services such as loan syndication,
underwriting of equity/debt issues, project finance, bond
flotation, asset securitization, debt paper-related
transactions, financial advisory and other investment banking
services.

With movements on the currency market turning to its favor, PNB
Forex Incorporated posted an unaudited income of Php6.27 million
for the first half of 2005. The subsidiary's commendable
performance came as a result of "higher forex gains" from the
volatile peso and foreign currencies movements as well as the
focused support and marketing efforts of the Bank's network of
324 branches. PNB Forex is the bank's wholly owned foreign
exchange dealer engaged in the buying and selling of foreign
currencies.

In the first semester of 2005, PNB Securities likewise turned in
profits and posted a preliminary and unaudited income of Php2.68
million. The figure surpassed its targeted income of Php425,000
by more than 5 times, an affirmation of its remarkable
performance turnaround in 2004 after several years of losses.
The subsidiary posted a net profit of Php7.20 million in end of
2004, a reversal of its Php3.45 million net loss in 2003.

PNB Securities President Jerome A. Tan attributes the company's
remarkable turnaround to "improved securities market condition
and higher business volumes". PNB Securities is the bank's
wholly owned stock brokerage subsidiary that deals in the
trading of shares and stocks listed in the stock exchange.

A joint venture between PNB and Japan's well-established
financial institutions, IBJ Leasing Co., Ltd. and Mizuho
Corporate Bank, Japan-PNB Leasing and Finance Corporation ended
June 2005 with a net income of Php8.27 million. Despite last
year's economic and political uncertainties brought about by the
national elections and other overlying business concerns, Japan-
PNB Leasing managed to book Php745 million in new leases and
loans, higher than its accomplishment in the previous year.

Japan-PNB Leasing President Etsuo Okumura believes the most
essential factors that fostered the excellent performance of the
seven-year-old subsidiary were the "effective marketing
strategies that resulted in the increase in business volumes".

The favorable environment for leasing operations and the
assistance relayed to export-related companies in foreign
currency leases, most especially clients earning U.S. dollars
and Japanese yen, likewise greatly helped boost the performance
of the Bank's partially owned leasing company. JPNBL ranks no. 5
in the financial leasing industry in the country in terms of
total credit portfolio.

For his part, PNB President Omar Byron T. Mier commended the
subsidiaries' outstanding feats, believing that their
significant contribution will further boost PNB's profit
potentials in 2005.

"The subsidiaries have complemented the Bank's profitability.
They definitely provide the critical support necessary for the
bank to sustain its momentum towards full rehabilitation," he
says.

NATIONAL BANK: Management Changes May Hurt Recovery
---------------------------------------------------
The ownership change in Philippine National Bank (PNB) is likely
to affect its ability to sustain the bank's positive performance
in the past few years, BusinessWorld reports.

Brokerage firm ATR-Kim Eng said the change may result in the
removal of key management responsible for a turnaround at the
bank.

"The bank has been well on its way to profit recovery under the
management of former President Lorenzo V. Tan. With Lucio Tan
having outright control of the board, we are unsure if key
management personnel will remain," ATR-Kim Eng Securities said.

After availing of a state bailout a few years ago due to massive
non-performing loans and mismanagement following the Asian
crisis, PNB now ranks as the country's sixth largest bank with
total assets amounting to Php217 billion as of end-June 2005.

On Thursday last week, the Lucio Tan Group announced it was
matching Union Bank's offer to buy 67 percent of PNB at Php43.77
per share. The government bid out the stake, which it co-owned
with Mr. Tan, last August 12. A successful bid means Mr. Tan
will own a total of 77-percent in the PNB.

Mr. Tan also owns Allied Banking Corp., the country's tenth
largest domestic bank in terms of assets and analysts have said
a merger would make sense.

ATR-Kim Eng, however, doubts that Mr. Tan will immediately merge
Allied Bank with PNB because the court has yet to determine
whether he is the rightful owner of his shares in Allied Bank.


NATIONAL BANK: Fitch Affirms Ratings after Tan Takes Over
---------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings, the international rating agency, today affirmed
Philippine National Bank's (PNB) ratings at Individual 'E' and
Support '3' following the recent announcement that the Lucio Tan
group had raised its ownership of PNB to a controlling 79% stake
after winning a competitive bidding process for a 34% stake from
the government.

Fitch's Individual rating on PNB reflects the bank's weak
balance sheet with its high level of non-performing assets,
which are in turn a legacy of the government's direction of the
bank's lending during the 1980s and 1990s and the subsequent
Asian economic crisis. That said, PNB's balance sheet is notably
stronger today, after a deposit run in late-2000 led to a
bailout of the bank by the government and the Lucio Tan group
which as a result, together came to jointly own and manage the
bank.

The balance sheet improvement also led to better profitability,
although this too, like the balance sheet, remains weak. Of
greatest note, however, has been the operational development of
the bank since the bailout, thanks to the very competent new
management installed at the bank at that time. This is, in turn,
building the basis for the bank's return to greater
profitability and overall financial strength.

"With the Lucio Tan group gaining sole control of PNB, it is
unlikely that there will be any change in the composition of the
bank's highly professional and competent management team. The
deal also paves the way for a merger with the smaller Allied
Bank which is also owned by the Lucio Tan group," said Ivan Tan,
Associate Director in Fitch's Financial Institutions team in
Asia.

Fitch notes that a merger between PNB and Allied Bank (rated
Individual 'D', Support '4' and ranked 10th by assets) would
render the merged entity the third-largest bank in the
Philippines, enlarging the branch network and franchise somewhat
and improving economies of scale for greater efficiency. The PNB
transaction follows two other consolidating transactions in the
past month - namely, Bank of the Philippine Islands' acquisition
of Prudential Bank and Banco de Oro's acquisition of 25% stake
in Equitable PCI Bank.

Fitch views such consolidation of the Philippines' somewhat
fragmented and generally weak banking industry positively. That
said, the Philippines' major banks continue to be controlled by
prominent Philippine business interests. In Fitch's view, much
more diverse ownership structures along with foreign bank
involvement would result in an improvement in the governance and
commerciality of the banks.

NATIONAL POWER: PSALM Looks At No-sale Scenario This Year
---------------------------------------------------------
The government has given up on its year-end deadline for the
sale of its power generation assets, The Manila Times has
learned.

The Power Sector Assets and Liabilities Management Corp. (PSALM)
said Friday it is looking at a "no-sale" scenario in the case of
National Power Corp. (Napocor) this year.

The timetable for the privatization of Napocor has been moved to
another quarter from the fourth quarter this year to March next
year as the government scurries to make the generating assets
more palatable to investors.

PSALM president Nieves L. Osorio said the sale of Napocor's
assets is the condition for open access, but the energy family
is looking at other ways by which this can be done to still have
open access even if the 70 percent in Napocor's generating
assets are not sold.

Ms. Osorio declined to identify the measures the government is
considering, even as she maintained that the sale of Napocor's
assets was on schedule.

The government has been banking on the sale of Napocor's
generation assets to jump-start an open-access scheme in the
power sector and reduce the firm's liabilities.

Napocor had been the biggest drag on the government's finances.
The present administration earlier agreed to write off some
Php200 billion of the power firm's Php500-billion debt.

NATIONAL TRANSMISSION: Three Investors Keen on Stake
----------------------------------------------------
Three investors have signified its interest in bidding for the
operation and maintenance of the National Transmission Corp.
(TransCo), Today News reveals.

TransCo's transmission asset is set for auction this year.

The Power Sector Assets and Liabilities Management (PSALM)
Corp., the state agency that is overseeing the sale, will soon
be sending out invitations for the auction as soon as it gets
the Energy Regulatory Commission's approval on the maximum
allowable revenue of TransCo.

While Transco's proxy value stands at US$2.3 billion, the
government wants to secure a higher value, adding the actual
value will depend on the energy commission.

HARTFORD HOLDINGS: Returns to Black with SGD327,000 Net Profit
--------------------------------------------------------------
Hartford Holdings Limited, a quality education provider of
business management programmes, reported on Aug. 19, 2005 a 17%
increase in turnover from SGD5.4 million to SGD6.3 million for
the full year ended 30 June 2005 (FY2005).

The increase was attributed to a higher level of student
enrolments and new courses offered. Hartford's successful
marketing and restructuring efforts also resulted in the Group
recording a net profit of SGD327,429 from a loss of SGD770,346
in the previous year.

Mr Chew Hua Seng, Executive Chairman of Hartford, said: "We are
delighted to report that our reorganisation efforts are
completed and have paid off, resulting in Hartford turning round
this year. This set of results reaffirms that we are on the
right track to achieve higher growth. With our ability to now
leverage on Raffles Education Corporation's regional marketing
network, we are confident of recruiting even more students to
Hartford. "

For FY2005, the Group saw a 6% increase in personnel expenses as
compared to FY2004, a result of an increase in lecturers'
payroll, as well as other payroll costs connected with the
organisational restructuring in the first half of FY2005.
Other operating expenses decreased 16% from SGD4.4 million in
FY2004 to SGD3.7 million in FY2005 due mainly to the reduction
in provisions for bad debts and legal and professional fees.

The Group's fixed assets increased by about SGD317,000 as
compared to the prior financial year end, mainly due to the new
institute in Mongolia which commenced operations in March 2005
and the re-location of our premises in Singapore to accommodate
the institute's future expansion.

With the completion of the organisational restructuring in
FY2005, the Group has streamlined its operations and achieved
better cost efficiency. It has also improved its revenue sharing
with its university partners. In addition, the Group has aligned
its sales and marketing activities to increase its student
intake by continually strengthening its existing sales
infrastructure and leveraging on Raffles Education Corporation's
marketing network to recruit regionally.

The Group has rolled out three new advanced diploma programmes
in business to capture a wider base of students. The Group will
continue to collaborate with renowned universities to offer
other undergraduate and postgraduate courses that are of demand
in the market.

"With the completion of our reorganising efforts, we expect to
reap the benefits of a more efficient and focused organisation.
At the same time, we also intend to expand our footprint in Asia
by developing a college network in China, India and Southeast-
Asia. The opening of our Hartford Institute Mongolia was the
first step in executing this plan and we will aggressively
exploring opportunities to add to our network." said Mr. Chew.

UNITED FIBER: Clarifies Report on Trasnfer of Kiani Shares
----------------------------------------------------------
United Fiber System Limited (UFS) clarifies certain things an
article dated Aug. 19, 2005, published in newspaper Bisnis

1. The Article made references to a transfer of shares in PT

Company.

The Company clarifies that the shares of PT KK have not been
transferred to the Company. As announced on June 29, 2005 the

condition.
