EG GREEN: Future Lies in Elders' Hands
--------------------------------------
Elders now has a powerful say in the future of the troubled meat
processor EG Green & Sons after creditor National Australia Bank
sold its AU$20 million debt to the agribusiness giant, The West
Australian reports.

The deal, set to be finalized this week, will give Elders the
power to influence the administrator's decision on the Company's
fate. The administrator, appointed two weeks ago by EG Green,
requires support from a majority of creditors for any plan to
resolve its predicament.

Administrator Martin Jones of Ferrier Hodgson will be calling
for expressions of interest this week from parties interested in
buying the business or its assets.

Meanwhile, Elders managing director Greg Hunt dismissed
speculations that it will eventually take control of EG Green,
West Australia's dominant beef processor.

He clarified that Elders aim was to protect its own access to EG
Green's custom processing facilities and to ensure the works
turned out a quality product, was cost-efficient and had an
owner with sufficient capital to invest long term.

EMPEROR MINES: Losses Balloon to AU$33.7 Mln
--------------------------------------------
Troubled gold explorer Emperor Mines Limited's net loss for the
year ended June 30, 2005 had blown out to AU$33.7 million,
according to Egoli News.

The miner's poor performance was blamed on lower output, higher
costs and asset impairment at its gold mine in Vatukoula, Fiji.

However, Emperor's primary concern is the uncertainty
surrounding the restructuring of the ANZ'z loan repayment
schedule.

The firm's directors are still confident the Emperor mine can
remain a going concern, but acknowledge significant uncertainty
until the bank's position is confirmed. Presently, the group is
taking a series of measures to boost productivity and avoid
future problems.

Aside from efforts to restructure ANZ loan repayments, the
Company is also in negotiations with Fiji's government for
relief from gold royalties.

The group also finalized an AU$10-million loan agreement with
DRDGOLD Limited (DRD), of which it has already drawn down AU$4.7
million.

Revenues from ordinary activities for the year were marginally
lower at AU$65.3 million and no dividend was declared for the
period.

MAYNE GROUP: Unveils Dividend Reinvestment Plan
-----------------------------------------------
Mayne Group recently declared a dividend of 6.5 cents (franked
to 50 percent) with a record date of September 2, 2005, payable
September 30, 2005.

Mayne operates a Dividend Reinvestment Plan (DRP) which will
apply to this dividend. In accordance with the DRP, Mayne has
determined that the price at which the shares are to be issued
will be AU$4.98.

The DRP is calculated on the weighted average market price of
all Mayne Group Limited fully paid ordinary shares sold on the
Australian Stock Exchange during the five trading days
immediately preceding and inclusive of the record date for the
relevant dividend payment.

TELSTRA CORPORATION: Warns of Profit Slump
------------------------------------------
The Telstra Corporation Board and management have reviewed the
company's trading results for the first two months of the
current financial year and considered preliminary data emerging
from the CEO's strategic review of management and operations.

Also, Telstra management was briefed by Department of
Communications, Information, and the Arts (DCITA) late last week
on their proposal to expand the regulation of Telstra. As a
result, the Board decided to clarify the earnings outlook for
the company.

The company's earnings before interest and tax in 2005/06 are
expected to decline by 7-10 percent compared to 2004/05 as a
result of accelerating declines in PSTN revenues and softening
growth in the mobiles market due to aggressive pricing and
"bucket plans".

The accelerating decline in PSTN revenues reflects the influence
of two forces: (1) downward pressures that are industry-wide,
which management will address in its strategic review, and (2)
regulatory decisions that result in direct material reductions
in revenues.

In addition to the costs of regulation that have been widely
addressed, revenues lost to regulatory decisions are large and
growing each year. In 2005/06, regulatory price reduction
decisions that have already been made or are pending are likely
to cost Telstra more than $850 million in lost revenues and have
been factored into the company's earnings outlook.

While growth rates in broadband and advertising continue to be
strong, they are not sufficient in absolute terms to offset the
decline in PSTN revenues.

There are two pending decisions that are material for Telstra:
(1) operational separation as briefed last week by DCITA and (2)
pricing for the unbundled local loop, which includes proposed
ULL prices that are deaveraged and below Telstra's costs.
Telstra will inform the market when it is in a position to
quantify the financial and operational impact of these
decisions.

Telstra's management team has introduced a number of immediate
measures to address the deterioration in the company's earnings
outlook, including a freeze on recruitment and deferral of all
non-customer demand-driven discretionary capital expenditure.
Management will introduce further measures to drive earnings
growth and reduce costs as the CEO completes his strategic
review of the company's operations.

Telstra's CEO, and the Board agrees, has said that "Telstra's
ability to halt and reverse the decline in earnings in future
years depends not only on effective management but also on
regulations and administrative practices that do not continually
impair shareholder value with initiatives like operational
separation and below-cost de-averaging that takes away revenues
used to support services to high-cost areas in regional and
remote Australia."

Telstra, consistent with its duties to its shareholders, will
continue to inform shareholders of material developments that
affect the company's financial outlook.

TELSTRA CORPORATION: PM Says Executives' Behavior 'Disgraceful'
---------------------------------------------------------------
The behavior exhibited by the executives of phone firm Telstra
Corp. Ltd. was described by Australian Prime Minister John
Howard as "disgraceful", Reuters relates.

Government MPs and Senators met on Tuesday to approve bills for
the planned AU$30 billion (US$23 billion) sale of the
government's 51.8-percent stake in Telstra, including new
regulations and guarantees of customer service.

Around 12 government members spoke in an internal debate about
the new legislation. MPs and Senators were not happy with
remarks from Telstra, and suggested that Telstra's new
management team should be "pulled into line". PM Howard agreed
with the criticisms being leveled at Telstra from MPs and
Senators, saying Telstra's behavior was disgraceful.

Telstra has blamed government regulation as being partly
responsible for the profit downgrade saying new rules would cost
the company AU$850 million in lost revenue in 2005/06.

Fund managers do not expect the dispute between the government
and Telstra to affect the government's resolve to divest its
controlling stake in the telco, although a lower share price
could lead it to revise the manner and timing of any sale.

BANK OF CHINA: NPL Ratio Rises as Loan Growth Slows
---------------------------------------------------
The Bank of China (BOC) said on Monday that its non-performing
loan ratio rose to 4.82 percent as of July from 4.38 percent at
the end of June, The Standard reports.

The commercial bank's loan growth rate has been slower than the
overall banking industry as the lender tried to become more
careful in extending new loans to prevent them from going sour.

Bank of China, which received a US$22.5 billion government
bailout in December 2003, needs to cut bad loans to attract
international investors to its share sale.

The commercial bank hired Goldman Sachs Group, UBS and Bank of
China International to underwrite an overseas initial public
offering scheduled in the first quarter next year.

In an announcement to the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, China
Southern Airlines Company Limited said its shares have been
suspended pending the release of an announcement relating to a
notifiable transaction. It didn't give further details.

Dow Jones reported that the carrier is expected to buy 10 Airbus

first half, said last week it agreed to buy 10 B787 aircraft

INDUSTRIAL AND COMMERCIAL: Fitch Upgrades Rating to 'D/E'
---------------------------------------------------------  
Fitch Ratings, the international rating agency, has on Tuesday
upgraded Industrial and Commercial Bank of China's (ICBC)
Individual ratings to 'D/E' from 'E'. At the same time, the
agency affirmed ICBC's Long-term foreign currency rating at
'BBB+' and Support rating at '2'. The rating Outlook is Stable.

Fitch views the USD15 billion government recapitalisation of
ICBC, completed in April 2005, and the disposal of USD85bn
(RMB705bn) in NPLs in June 2005 as positive moves, resulting in
ICBC's substantially improved asset quality and enhanced capital
position. At end-June 2005, ICBC reported a CAR ratio of 9.12
percent (tier 1: 8.07%) and an NPL ratio of 4.58 percent versus
a high 19 percent end-2004.

For the second half of 2005, ICBC is targeting to establish a
shareholding company and to focus on the reform of its corporate
governance, human resources and risk management systems. The
bank has lately signed a memorandum of understanding to sell a
combined 10% stake to Goldman Sachs, Allianz Group and American
Express for about USD3bn.

It is expected that its reform programme should gain additional
impetus from the introduction of strategic investors and stock
market listing, although any commitment from the strategic
investors is yet to be seen, furthermore it is notable that none
is a commercial bank likely to provide technical assistance on
the scale ICBC will need.

Fitch notes that ICBC's current robust financials are the result
of one-off government aid. The agency estimates that the
underlying trend of NPLs actually increased in 2004, although
the bank states that this is due to a much stricter
classification of overdue loans. As a result, the maintenance of
current good asset quality and a higher level of capital, as
well as improvement in its operating performance would be key to
ICBC's rating outlook.

FIAT INDIA: Aims to Steer Back with New Cars
--------------------------------------------
As part of a massive restructuring exercise, Fiat India Pvt Ltd
would soon launch new vehicle models in the domestic market, The
Economic Times reports.

The company is looking to introduce new models including
hatchbacks Panda and Idea, and sedan Albea, in a bid to
strengthen its dealer and service network.

Seeing a massive surge in sales after the introduction of the
Palio model before the sales dipped following questions over the
car's fuel efficiency, Fiat India plans to introduce new models
in the coming years, though strictly under the supervision of
its parent company.

A few months ago, Fiat India has been suffering from sluggish
sales in the local market. It was not making enough money,
customer service was not good, brand appeal was insufficient and
market coverage was spotty.

But the company continues to strive to get its due share in the
country's car market.

On the brighter side, Fiat India is claimed to have a bank debt
of just INR29 crore. The parent company wrote off losses to the
tune of INR1,300 crore.

INDIAN OIL: Bleeding US$11.8 Mln Daily Due to Low Fuel Prices
-------------------------------------------------------------
Indian Oil Corporation admitted it was losing INR520 million
(US$11.8 million) everyday because it was selling petrol,
diesel, LPG and kerosene below the cost price, Asia Pulse
reports.

The oil firm revealed its accumulated losses in the current
fiscal year have already hit INR73.50 billion.

IOC chairman 'S Behuria said petrol was being sold at INR7.45 a
litre discount and diesel at INR5.15 per litre. Domestic cooking
gas (LPG) was being sold at a loss of INR96 per cylinder and
kerosene at INR12.85 per litre.

The government has not allowed oil companies to raise fuel
prices despite global crude oil price crossing 70 dollars a
barrel.

Petroleum Secretary 'S C Tripathi said oil companies have not
been able to pass on the high prices leading to large under-
recoveries and losses.

Petroleum Ministry has proposed an increase of INR3 per litre
each in petrol and diesel prices and INR20 per cylinder increase
in LPG price to save the oil companies from going bankrupt.

SHIVA CEMENT: Debt Revamp Plan Gets Green Light
-----------------------------------------------
Shiva Cement Limited finally secured in-principle approval for
its debt-restructuring proposal, Sify Business Line reports.

The Company's consortium leader IFCI Limited as well its
lenders, including ICICI Bank, Bank of India, Bank of Baroda,
Allahabad Bank have all endorsed the restructuring plan.

The plan was initially approved in December last year. The
latest sanction by IFCI would pave the way for the finalization
of the debt revamp exercise, which would reduce the firm's debt
burden while increasing the bottom line and earnings per share
(EPS) of the Company.

Shiva Cement, which has an installed capacity of 1.77 lakh
tonnes per annum, is awaiting a formal clearance sanction from
the Industrial Development Bank of India (IDBI). A press release
from the company stated that it is expected in the next few
days.

CIPUTRA DEVELOPMENT: Lowers Expected Sales Target by 25%
--------------------------------------------------------
Property developing firm PT Ciputra Development said that it
will lower its sales target by 25%, from IDR1.56 trillion to
IDR1.17 trillion, reports Asia Pulse.

However, Company management has no plans to revise its IDR900
billion income target and IDR500 billion net profit target.

The Company had to lower its target aim due to a market slump,
brought on by the weakening of the local currency. Ciputra
Development posted sales at IDR500 billion for the first six
months of 2005, and expects sales to decline further in the
coming months.

Ciputra Development was hoping to return to black this year,
with two housing projects in Java and Banten, and a shopping
mall to be built in South Jakarta. The Company also entered into
an agreement to convert its IDR1.76 trillion debt into shares,
to allow it to return to profit sooner. But with the market
slump and expected sales drop, a return to profit may not occur
within this year.

INDOSAT: Standard & Poor's Revises Rating

spending in Indonesia, despite its financial strength. Although
the medium-term prospects of Indonesia's economic growth and
stability remain favorable, product demand and cash flow
generation of the Company could be weakened by higher fuel
costs, increasing interest rates, and inflation in the near

PERTAMINA: Expects Drop in Petroleum Imports
--------------------------------------------
State oil & gas firm PT Pertamina expects its petroluem imports
to gradually decline from 17.8 million barrels in August to 13
million barrels in November, Dow Jones reports.

According to Pertamina marketing and trading director Ari
Sumarno, the Company's oil imports for this month and the next
are expected to remain At 17.8 million barrels, but would fall
to 13 million barrels in November.

The gradual decline may be due to an expected reopening of an
oil refinery unit that is scheduled for cleaning/repairs. The
unit, located in the Pertamina refinery in Cilacap, Central
Java, will be temporarily shut down for 22 days beginning Sept.
12, 2005 for maintenance reasons. The unit is scheduled to
repoen next month, hence the decreased dependence on oil imports
for the Company.

HITACHI LIMITED: To Jointly Buy Car-navi Parts with Clarion
-----------------------------------------------------------
Hitachi, Ltd. (NYSE:HIT / TSE:6501) and Clarion Co., Ltd.
(TSE:6796) announced plans to begin collective purchasing in
October of components and materials for the Car Information
Systems (CIS) business, which includes car navigation systems,
in a move designed to strengthen their respective automotive
systems businesses.

In April this year, the two companies agreed to comprehensively
strengthen cooperation in the CIS field with the goal of
expanding their respective CIS businesses in light of rapid
advances in CIS technologies and functions, diversifying market
needs and global expansion of the car navigation systems market.
Following this agreement, Hitachi and Clarion brought together
researchers involved in the CIS business with a number of aims:
to combine the outstanding technologies of the two companies, to
make products more competitive, and to use investments more
efficiently and accelerate the pace of development through the
concentration of development resources. At the same time, a task
force was formed to discuss specific details of the cooperation.

Hitachi, Clarion and Hitachi's wholly owned subsidiary Xanavi
Informatics Corporation plan to begin collective purchasing of
components and materials in the CIS business in October. The
companies aim to improve the quality of systems and strengthen
competitiveness in terms of cost by reducing raw materials and
other materials expenses, placing orders with select suppliers
and using common components. Furthermore, by actively adopting
suppliers' new technologies and products, the companies aim to
reduce procurement prices by at least 30% over 3 years. Actions
will also be taken to establish a joint purchasing framework.

Moving forward, Hitachi and Clarion will continue to discuss
ways to further strengthen their CIS businesses, including
utilization of the two companies' sales channels and improving
after-sales service and other activities.

Details of the Collective Purchasing

(1) Implementation of Collective Purchasing

  Decide purchase prices based on the total value and volume of
purchases of both companies

  Both companies will jointly select suppliers and look for new
suppliers

  For some electronic components, Hitachi will place orders
using its centralized purchasing system

(2) Concentrate Orders on a Smaller Number of Suppliers

  Reduce the number of trading companies to which orders are
placed where the same manufacturer has multiple trading
companies

  Use the same supplier where possible when a category of
products is sourced from different manufacturers

(3) Use of Common Components

  Through greater cooperation between departments responsible
for procurement and development, including HCX Corporation, a
joint venture formed by Hitachi and Clarion to develop CIS, the
two companies aim to lower unit prices, reduce inventories,
improve quality and capture other economies of scale by using
common components.

In a company statement, Hitachi recorded income before income
taxes and minority interests of JPY4.8 billion, down 89 percent
year on year. After income taxes of JPY17.6 billion, Hitachi
posted a loss before minority interests of JPY12.8 billion.
Hitachi also posted a net loss of JPY24.0 billion, compared with
net income of JPY16 billion in the first quarter of fiscal 2004.

YAMAGUCHI BANK: Momiji Merger Details Still Unclear
---------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said today that its 'BBB+'
long-term counterparty credit rating on Yamaguchi Bank Ltd.
remains on CreditWatch with negative implications, as details
still have not emerged on the bank's planned capital injection
or management consolidation scheme with Momiji Holdings Inc.
(unrated). The rating was first placed on CreditWatch on March
22, 2005, following the bank's announced intent to form a
business and capital alliance with Momiji Holdings. The
CreditWatch status was reiterated on June 17.  

Yamaguchi Bank intends to merge with Momiji Holdings in an
effort to help improve the banks' profitability through
franchise and operational streamlining. However, the merger
could have a negative impact on the credit quality of the bank,
given that Momiji Holdings is weaker in terms of asset quality
and capitalization.

On August 19, 2005, Yamaguchi Bank completed a JPY23.5 billion
transaction to acquire 33.5 percent of Momiji Holdings' common
shares, becoming its top shareholder. Other planned improvements
to Momiji Holdings' capital base include an additional third-
party share offering to be underwritten by Yamaguchi Bank,
repayment of borrowed public funds, and third-party capital
injections.

However, amounts of capital to be raised and public money to be
repaid remain unclear, as are details concerning ownership
ratios and management consolidation. The CreditWatch status will
be resolved when Yamaguchi Bank reveals the details of its plan.
Any potential downgrade would likely be no more than two
notches, given the institutions' relative financial positions
and the possibility of government support.

SSANGYONG CORPORATION: Morgan Stanley Named Preferred Bidder
------------------------------------------------------------
Creditors of cash-strapped Ssangyong Corp. picked Morgan Stanley
as the preliminary preferred bidder for the trading company,
reveals Asia Pulse, citing Yonhap News.

According to a creditor bank official, Morgan Stanley outbid
four other prospective buyers in terms of price, job retention
and debt proposal.

A final decision whether to select Morgan Stanley as prime
bidder will be released Monday.

The creditors of Ssangyong Corp. are planning to ink a
preliminary deal with Morgan Stanley within this month before
signing a final agreement by the end of November, the bank
official who prefers anonymity said.

Meanwhile, creditors of one of the company's units, Ssangyong
Cement said that Ssangyong Cement will be released from
creditors' grip in late November.  

Improvement in the cement makers performance and financial
status prompted the creditors to drop the company from their
supervision.

Ssangyong Cement has been under the joint control of creditors
since October 2001.

About Ssangyong Corp.

The Ssangyong Corporation, the trading arm of the troubled
Ssangyong Group, is attempting to steer the group into
prosperous waters by trading in machinery, energy, apparel, and
more.

The Ssangyong Group, along with South Korea's other chaebol
(family-run conglomerates), has been forced by the Asian
economic crisis to sell several businesses in order to stay
afloat.

From humble beginnings as a soap shop, the Ssangyong Group grew
to be one of the nation's largest conglomerates at one point but
is now a fraction of the size it once was.

In 2003 Ssangyong Corporation creditors initiated a debt-for-
equity swap in an effort to stabilize the ailing company.

KOREA LEASE: Lone Star Likely to Take Over Business
---------------------------------------------------
U.S.-based investment fund, Lone Star, is most likely to
takeover troubled Korea Lease Financing Co. (KLFC), says Asia
Pulse, citing Yonhap News.

KLFC creditors presented during a meeting last Friday on how to
sell the entire stake of the troubled company.  They also
discussed how to dispose of its assets and debts worth KRW321.3
billion (US$314 million) to Lone Star.  A vote on the measure
will be done September 15.

In late July, Lone Star, the largest shareholder of South
Korea's Korea Exchange Bank, was selected as a preferred
negotiation target for KLFC disposal.

COLLEGE ASSURANCE: SEC Boss Says Rehab Bid Pointless
----------------------------------------------------
The chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC)
said College Assurance Plan Philippines Inc. (CAP) was not
qualified to seek court remedy.

Fe Barin told The Manila Standard that the ailing pre-need
provider has no reason why it should apply for corporate
rehabilitation.

Last month, the corporate regulator issued a show cause order on
CAP for various violations of pre-need rules. The SEC threatened
to place CAP under management committee if it failed to explain
its violations.  

However, CAP filed for corporate rehabilitation while SEC was
reviewing the company's reply to the show cause order.

The commission reportedly suspected that CAP would try other
legal avenues as its reply to show cause letter was apparently
lifted from a legal document.

SEC spokesperson Gerard Lucban, meanwhile, said the SEC was
preparing its comment on CAP's rehabilitation plan, with lawyers
reviewing the rehabilitation plan filed last week by CAP before
the Makati Regional Trial Court.  

The official said SEC was not disappointed with CAP's decision
to go to court, citing that appointing a rehabilitation receiver
was the same as creating a management committee.  

The preneed firm had Php14. 6 million in cash based on audited
financial statements as of end-2004.  Total liabilities that
were due amounted to Php4. 1 billion, including obligations to
planholders in the first semester of school year 2005-2006
estimated at Php1.2 billion.  

CAP's outstanding liabilities to corporate creditors stood at
Php2. 9 billion.

HACIENDA LUISITA: Strikers Flock to Former President's Home
-----------------------------------------------------------
Striking Hacienda Luisita Inc. workers staged a protest rally in
front of the residence of former Philippine president Corazon
Aquino, whose family owned the controversial sugar estate, The
Manila Standard reports.

Representatives of the 6,000 striking workers in marched front
of the Aquino residence in Quezon City and demanded that the
government review the land reform program that was implemented
by her administration.

The workers questioned anew the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform
Program that was shepherded through the House of Representatives
by then congressman Jose "Peping" Cojuangco, the former
president's brother, and signed into law by Mrs. Aquino herself.

The law allowed the development of "corporate farms"
theoretically owned by the farmers and the landowners but
Hacienda Luisita workers claimed that the hacienda management
was trying to force them to give up their shares of stock in the
company by depriving them of electricity and other utilities.

The workers have been out of work since March when the
plantation management decided to cease operations because of a
strike that began on Nov. 6 last year.


MAKATI MEDICAL: Seeks Loan to Settle Debts
------------------------------------------
Ailing Makati Medical Center is planning to refinance a portion
of its Php1.2-billion debt by securing another loan, according
to BusinessWorld.

The planned borrowing is on top of MakatiMed's option to get
fresh funds from investors to service its debts. Presently, the
hospital is looking for investors who could put in at least
Php100 million in fresh funds.

Makati Med is also working to restructure a Php1.2-billion debt
to bank creditors. Hosital management i sset to talk with
creditor banks this week to discuss whether they would be
willing to restructure the hospital's debts.

The Development Bank of the Philippines (DBP), which has a
Php350-million expoure in the hospital, was hired to advise the
hospital in its bid to restructure loans.   

Aside from DBP, other Makati Med creditors include Rizal
Commercial Banking Corp., Insular Savings, the Social Security
System and DEG of Germany, which has an exposure of an
equivalent of Php300 million in euros.

Makati Med, at one time one of the best hospitals in the
country, had been incurring losses for the past three years. The
hospital only found out last December that it had incurred
Php300 million in losses since 2003.

PHILIPPINE AIRLINES: Seeks Higher Fuel Surcharge
------------------------------------------------
Philippine Airlines (PAL) is looking to increase its fuel
surcharges on overseas flights, The Philippine Daily Inquirer.

The national flag carrier has asked the Civil Aeronautics Board
for authority to increase its fuel surcharges to the United
States and Canada by US$12 to US$49, to Australia by US$12 to
US$34, to the Middle East by US$6 to US$19, and on all other
foreign destinations, except Guam, by US$4 to US$15.

PAL President Jaime Bautista confirmed the airline's
profitability will be affected by the no let-up increase in fuel
prices. But he said PAL is constantly trying to reduce cost
while enhancing the areas where we can sustain profits.

Fuel accounts for 40 percent of an airline's operating cost, and
depreciation of the peso further drives the costs of imported
fuel higher. The price of jet fuel hovered around $80 a barrel
at end-August.

In July PAL raised its fuel surcharge on long-haul flights by
US$15 but made no change in the surcharge on other flights.

The Civil Aeronautics Board is expected to hear PAL's
application for the rise in fuel surcharge in mid-September.

PAL is in its sixth year of a rehabilitation plan that will end
in 2009.

ACCORD CUSTOMER: Halts Amortization of Goodwill
-----------------------------------------------
Accord Customer Care Solutions Limited (ACCS) refers to the
queries from the Singapore Exchange Securities Trading Limited
(SGX-ST) dated Sept. 2, 2005, in relation to the Company's
annual report for the financial year 2004.

Here are the SGX-ST's questions and the Company's reply:

Please quantify the effects of adopting the Financial Reporting
Standard 103: Business Combination (FRS 103):

Company's Response

FRS 103 requires goodwill acquired in a business combination to
be measured after initial recognition at cost less any
accumulated impairment losses. Therefore, the goodwill is not
amortised and instead tested for impairment annually, or more
frequently if events or changes in circumstances indicate that
it might be impaired. The group has previously under FRS 22
amortised goodwill systematically over its useful life of 20
years. The effect to the first quarter's profit and loss
statement, had the group continued to amortise the remaining
goodwill under FRS 22, will amount to SGD133,000. As of March
31, 2005, no goodwill impairment provision is necessary.

CHARTERED SEMICONDUCTOR: Expects Lower Third Quarter Net Loss
-------------------------------------------------------------
Local chipmaker Chartered Semiconductor Manufacturing Limited
said that it expects its net loss for the third quarter of 2005
to be lower than forecasted due to increased sales, reports
Reuters News.

On July 22, 2005, the Company forecasted that it would incur a
net loss from SGD70.43 million to SGD87.19 million for the third
quarter ending Sept. 30, 2005, while revenues would increase by
44% to 48%. The Company's chief financial officer, George
Thomas, said that revenues were expected to be higher than
previously forecasted.

This is good news for Chartered Semiconductor, which had already
suffered its third consecutive loss, posting a second quarter
net loss of SGD112.5 million for the three months ending June
30, 2005, although it was lower than analysts' expected SGD128
million quarterly loss, as well as the Company's forecasted
SGD130 million net loss for the same period.

Chartered Semiconductor Manufacturing, one of the world's top
dedicated semiconductor foundries, offers leading-edge
technologies down to 90 nanometer (nm), enabling today's system-

THAI AIRWAYS: Posts 3Q Net Loss of THB4,779Mln
----------------------------------------------
Thai Airways Public Co. Ltd. released in its web site a copy of
its financial statements for the three - month and nine -month
periods ended June 30, 2005 along with clarification notes.

Total revenues from sale of goods and rendering of services for
3Q05 (April 1-June 30, 2005) amounted to THB37,129 million, an
increase of THB2,531 million or 7.3% from 3Q04 including
expansion of its new destination to New York that began on May
1, 2005.

The Company's operating expense increased by 22.7% or equal to
THB7,462 million.  The expense increase was due to the higher
fuel price by an average of 55.1% compared 3Q04.

Moreover, personnel expense increased as a result of
implementing a Mutual Separation Plan to down size the
organization and reduce personnel expense. The Company also
adjusted its salary structure which is retro-active from October
2004.

Operating loss for 3Q05 of THB4,125 million excludes loss on
foreign exchange of THB2,721 million arising from the weaker
Baht causing an increase in the Baht value of outstanding
balance of foreign currency borrowings.  

The Company's operating result before income tax was a loss of
THB6,846 million. As the Company has paid applicable income tax
in full for the first half of fiscal year 2005 financial
performance, because of the loss incurred in 3Q05, the income
tax paid is THB2,084 million excess of the nine - month
financial performance.

There is also a THB17 million deduction for minority
shareholders' interest of subsidiary. The Company's net result
for 3Q05 is a loss of THB4,779 million, exceeding last year's
loss of THB 913 million for the same period.

The Company's net profit for the first 9 months was THB4,428
million, a decrease of THB4,168 million or 48.5% from the same
period last year due to the higher fuel price and personnel
expense.
