ANVIL MINING: UN Report Brings Fresh Allegations
------------------------------------------------
The results of an investigation commissioned by the United
Nations (UN) has raised new concerns about the possible
involvement of Anvil Mining during a massacre in the Democratic
Republic of Congo (DRC) in October last year, according to ABC
News Online.

The UN's peacekeeping mission in DRC has been looking into
reports that more than 100 people were killed when government
troops tried to stop an uprising in the mining town of Kilwa
last year.  Australian mining firm Anvil was accused of aiding
the soldiers' efforts.

The UN's special investigation report confirmed three drivers
employed by Anvil drove the vehicles used by troops. The
vehicles reportedly appeared to have been used to transport
pillaged goods, as well as corpses, which may have included
victims of summary execution.

Anvil Mining strongly denied the accusations hurled against it,
saying it had no choice but provide some of its vehicles for use
by the DRC Army Forces because it was instructed to do so.

In the report, the UN mission also says Anvil Mining provided
food to the armed forces, and appears to have acknowledged
contributing to the payment of a certain number of soldiers.

A spokeswoman for Anvil Mining said everything in the UN report
has already been made public, and no further comment will be
made.

The Australian Federal Police (AFP) launched an investigation
into the actions of the mining company last month. The World
Bank has also launched its own inquiry.

NATIONAL AUSTRALIA: Banks on Local Resources
--------------------------------------------
National Australia Bank (NAB) has set up a specialist resource
unit in Perth, as part of efforts to capture a bigger share of
the Australian market, according to The Age.

The bank has assembled the resource team over the past year and
is now the fastest-growing area of the bank's business in the
state.

The resource team is one of the specialized units the bank has
created as part of a drive to return autonomy to state offices
and rebuild links with industry.

By moving the decision-makers back into the bank's state
headquarters, NAB chief executive John Stewart believes he can
eliminate the lumbering bureaucracy that had previously stifled
the bank's growth and lost its business clients.

NAB set up a commercial property finance team in Perth in
February and it is keen to develop a similar specialized unit to
target the energy and power sector.

When Mr. Stewart joined NAB 18 months ago, he said 90 percent of
the major decisions were sent back to the head office in
Melbourne. This slowed down the approval process, frustrated
business clients and lost the bank a share of clients in the
small to medium sized enterprises market.

We have now reversed those numbers and 90 per cent of the
decision are made here in WA," Mr. Stewart said. "We have moved
the expertise back to the state with the idea to make the state
more self-sufficient."

QANTAS AIRWAYS: Skywest Manages Claim
-------------------------------------
On July 8, 2005, Skywest Limited advised it had received a claim
from Qantaslink in connection with passenger screening services
at certain regional Western Australian airports.

The Company and Qantaslink have been involved in discussion
which have resulted in agreement being reached on both:

(1) The basis for the future provision of screening services at
the relevant airports (effective from July 1, 2005);

(2) A contribution by Skywest to the historical costs of
providing those services (incurred by Qantaslink) for the period
up to June 30, 2005.

The agreement between the parties includes a release of any
further liability of Skywest in relation to historical passenger
screen charges from Qantas as asserted in the claim (for the
period to June 30, 2005).

The amount Skywest has agreed to contribute to the historical
costs of providing those services is approximately AU$243,938
above all the amount which Skywest provisioned for screening
services reported in its June 30, 2004 statement of financial
position. This additional amount will therefore be recognized in
the statement of financial performance for the current year.

The Company is pleased that the claim has been amicably resolved
on terms acceptable to both parties. The relationship between
the two carriers remains strong and is unharmed by the claim
with Qantaslink continuing to provide passenger screening
services to Skywest customers.

LIPPO SECURITIES: SFC Reprimands Firm, Suspends Execs
-----------------------------------------------------
The Securities and Futures Commission has reprimanded Lippo
Securities Limited and suspended Mr. Han Sze Chao Richard, Mr.
Chan Ka Lok Cuthbert and Ms. Yeung Angie for 18 months, 10 weeks
and five weeks respectively following a settlement of its
disciplinary actions (Notes 1, 2, 3 and 4). Mr. Han is suspended
from October 3, 2005 to April 2, 2007. Mr. Chan is suspended
from November 7, 2005 to January 15, 2006. Ms. Yeung is
suspended from October 3, 2005 to November 6, 2005.

Mr. Han Sze Chao Richard

Mr. Han, a licensed representative and former responsible
officer of Lippo Securities, accepts a suspension of 18 months
for market manipulation.

The suspension follows an investigation by the SFC into the
unusual price movement of the shares of Fortuna International
Holdings Limited from January 2, 2002 to May 10, 2002.

The SFC found that, during the period, Han had placed buy orders
for Fortuna shares via the account of Super Glory International
Ltd maintained at Lippo Securities on 54 out of a total of 86
trading days. On 47 out of the 54 days, the last order placed by
Super Glory fell within the last minute of trading and resulted
in Super Glory's buy orders setting the closing price for
Fortuna shares on 46 of these days.

On 40 out of these days, single board lot orders were placed at
existing ask prices shortly before market close. Super Glory's
pattern of trading had the effect of pegging and/or stabilizing
the market price of Fortuna's shares during the period. Han was
the sole director and ultimate beneficiary of Super Glory and
the only person authorized to place orders on its behalf. Han
knew that his trading activities had the potential to distort
the market price of the shares and were prejudicial to the
integrity of the market (Note 5).

The SFC concludes that Han has been guilty of misconduct and his
fitness and properness has been called into question.

Lippo Securities Limited

Lippo Securities accepts a public reprimand for failing to
detect abusive trading activities.

The SFC found that Lippo Securities did not have sufficient
measures in place to identify abusive trading activities by
staff members using their staff accounts. Whilst Lippo
Securities monitored staff accounts to make sure that its staff
did not trade excessively in those accounts to the extent that
such trading would affect their work or seriously affect their
financial position, it did not check for abusive trades in those
accounts. Consequently, Lippo Securities failed to detect that
Han had engaged in improper trades to peg and/or stabilize the
price of Fortuna shares just before market close. As a result,
Lippo Securities breached the Code of Conduct with regard to the
monitoring of staff accounts.

Chan Ka Lok Cuthbert and Yeung Angie

Chan and Yeung, both licensed representatives of Lippo
Securities, accept a suspension of their licenses for 10 weeks
and five weeks respectively for facilitating Han's abusive
trading activities. Both Chan and Yeung executed Han's
questionable orders but neither reported them to Lippo
Securities' compliance department.

In deciding on the level of penalty, the SFC has considered all
circumstances of the case, including:

Han's guilty plea to the charged offence;

Their co-operation in the SFC's investigation and agreement to
settle the disciplinary proceedings against them; and

Lippo Securities took remedial action to prevent similar trading
malpractices from re-occurring and strengthened its internal
monitoring system of staff accounts.

The SFC considers that it is in the public interest and in the
interests of investors to settle its disciplinary actions
against Han, Lippo Securities, Chan, and Yeung.

Mr. Alan Linning, SFC's Executive Director of Enforcement, said:
"Market manipulation is a serious offense, which jeopardizes the
integrity of the market. A licensee should remember it has a
fundamental duty to act in the best interests of both its
clients and the integrity of the market. Any breach of this duty
warrants a lengthy period of suspension."

KONKAN TYRES: SEBI Debars Promoters, Directors
----------------------------------------------
Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) vide order dated
September 29, 2005 has issued the following directions in the
matter of Konkan Tyres Ltd.(KTL):

The promoters and directors of KTL namely, S/ Shri O G Soni,
Sunil Kumar Menon, Ramesh Kumar Putta, Fateh Sinh Solanki,
Narayan N Iyerare, Smt Indu Omprakash Soni, Konkan Capfin Ltd,
Olympic Agro Industries and  Esskey Rubber Industries Pvt. Ltd.
are hereby directed not to buy, sell, pledge or deal in
securities of KTL, directly or indirectly, till further
directions in this regard. KTL is directed not to issue any
equity shares or any other instrument convertible into equity
shares or alter its capital structure in any manner till further
directions in this regard.

That the brokers of BSE namely, Bhupendra M Bheda, Unique Stock
Brokers Ltd. and DSE Securities Ltd. through whom the promoter
entities have dealt are hereby directed not to buy, sell or deal
in securities of KTL on behalf of the above-mentioned promoters
and directors, directly or indirectly, till further directions
in this regard.

All the above directions shall take effect immediately and shall
be in force until further orders.

Upon preliminary enquiry it was found that the recent increase
in price and trading volume in the shares of Konkan Tyres Ltd.
is unprecedented and is not supported by the poor financial
performance of the company. The company has been making a flurry
of favorable corporate announcements in the recent past which
has apparently increased the price and trading interest in the
share of the company.

The information so far collected by SEBI has raised doubts
regarding the genuineness of the corporate announcements. The
promoters of the company are found to have sold large quantities
of shares around the time of making corporate announcements. In
view of the grave emergency and to save the investors and the
securities market from further fraudulent acts of the concerned
entities the above orders were issued.

* SEBI Bans Firms Over Fraudulent Activities
--------------------------------------------
Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) via an order dated
September 29, 2005 has issued the following directions in the
matter of (1) Prime Capital Market Ltd., (2) Subh Laxmi Projects
Ltd., (3) Global Capital Market Ltd., (4) Bankam Investments
Ltd., (5) S. T. Services Ltd. and (6) Amluckie Investment Co.
Ltd.:

1. The following eleven stock brokers of Calcutta Stock Exchange
(CSE) shall not buy, sell or deal in securities, in any manner,
either directly or indirectly, till further directions in this
regard:

(a) Sanju Kabra

(b) Shivam Stock Broking Pvt. Ltd.

(c) D B & Co.

(d) Rajendra Prasad Shah

(e) Badri Prasad & Sons

(f) M Bhiwaniwala & Co.

(g) Ram Mohan Sarda

(h) A V Shares & Stock Brokers Pvt. Ltd.

(i) Shyam Lal Sultania

(j) Ahilya Commercial Pvt. Ltd.

2. The trading in the following companies shall remain suspended
till further directions issued in this regard.

a) Prime Capital Market Ltd.

b) Subh Laxmi Projects Ltd.

c) Global Capital Market Ltd.

d) Bankam Investments Ltd.

e) S. T. Services Ltd.

f) Amluckie Investment Co.


The above directions shall take effect immediately and shall be
in force until further orders.

The order has been passed by Shri G Anantharaman, Whole Time
Member, SEBI in the following context:

It is evident from the findings of the preliminary inquiry, that
the six companies, all of which are listed in CSE, and one of
which is listed also in BSE, and another listed additionally in
Jaipur and Ahmedabad Stock Exchanges the brokers have followed a
common modus operandi of artificially jacking up the price and
creating false volumes through continuous self deals executed on
the same terminal and cross deals amongst themselves, thereby
not only enriching themselves but also aiding and abetting the
process of legitimizing the gains. Besides the companies
themselves have recorded poor or negative financial performance
and have not bothered to file up to date financial statements
with CSE.

Such acts by the brokers pose a serious risk to the stability
and settlement system of the stock exchange besides raising the
spectre that innocent investors may get drawn by the artificial
trading volumes generated by these brokers and may in the
process be beguiled into investing in the shares of these
fundamentally weak companies at unjustifiable market prices,
only to be left adrift.

Their dealings also establishes a prima facie case of violation
of SEBI (Prohibition of Fraudulent and Unfair Trade Practices
Relating to Securities Markets) Regulations, 2003 and Regulation
7 of SEBI (Stock Brokers and Sub-brokers) Regulations, 1992 read
with code of conduct as specified in Scheduled II of the said
Regulations.

Bank Mandiri is owned by the government.

Former Bank Mandiri president E.C. W. Neloe, former vice
president I Wayan Pugeg and former corporate banking director M.
Sholeh Tasripan were arrested on charges of willingly lending up
to IDR60 trillion in loans to private firms without conducting

TELEKOMUNIKASI INDONESIA: Government to OK Share Buyback Plan
-------------------------------------------------------------
The Indonesian government may approve state telecommunications
firm PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia (Telkom)'s plan to buy back
shares from the Jakarta Stock Exchange (JSX) and New York Stock
Exchange (NYSE), the Jakarta Post reports.

According to Minister of State enterprises Sugiharto, the
proposed shares buyback (which has yet to be approved by
shareholders in an upcoming November meeting) would increase the
government's stake in the Company, and it would receive higher
dividends as well.

The government believes that Telkom has sufficent funds to buy
back the shares. It currently holds a 51% stake in the Company.

Telkom President Director Arwin Rasyid previously said that the
Company plans to spend IDR3 trillion to buy back some shares
from JSX, where 42% of its shares are traded, and NYSE, which
holds 7% of the Company's shares in the form of American
depository receipts.

He also added that Telkom's shares buyback plan was still in
progress and must comply with existing regulations, aside from
being approved by Company shareholders.

* Fitch Assigns 'BB-' to Indonesia's Upcoming Global Bond Issue
---------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings assigned on Oct. 4, 2005 an expected Long-term
foreign currency rating of 'BB-' (BB minus) to the Republic of
Indonesia's USD1.25 billion (IDR12.83 trillion) 10-year and 30-
year U.S. dollar-denominated global bonds to be issued today,
Oct. 5, 2005. This rating is contingent upon receipt of final
documents conforming to information already received.

The Oct. 1, 2005 announcement of the more than 87% hike in fuel
prices for the three categories of premium gasoline, diesel fuel
and kerosene is larger than expected. Fitch notes that the
government's decisive gesture came on the heels of the central
bank's monetary policy tightening in August and September, and
signals the administration's commitment to maintaining its
fiscal consolidation process and help stabilise currency
volatility. "Fitch believes the policy combination of interest
rate hikes and timely fuel subsidy cuts alleviates market
concerns surrounding the fiscal effects of higher oil prices and
the exchange rate implication of heightened dollar demand from
state-owned oil and gas company Pertamina," said Ai Ling Ngiam,
associate director in Fitch's Asian Sovereigns team.

Fitch highlights that the government has managed to implement a
politically difficult measure relatively smoothly, through
political fortitude and parliamentary support to cap the 2005
state budget fuel subsidy allocation at IDR89.2 trillion, as
well as the concurrent disbursements of cash compensation funds
to a large scale of eligible poor families. Fitch also
anticipates that discussions on the possible adoption of a new
mechanism to apply automatic tariff adjustments to fix fuel
subsidy amounts rather than the fuel price could pave the way
towards a more realistic alignment towards market prices.

Fitch believes the recurrence of Bali bombings may further
undermine the return of tourist arrivals, which had already been
affected by the 2002 bombing incident and the tsunami disaster.
Nonetheless, the economic impact of the terrorist attack is
likely to be isolated and muted, given that tourism only
constitutes around 2% of GDP while the Bali economy accounts for
about 1.2% of the overall Indonesian economy. Furthermore, Fitch
notes that the Indonesian economy is currently growing strongly,
with evidence of a recovery in investment as well as resilient
export growth. These factors should help sustain GDP growth at
around 5% for 2005 and 2006.

Ongoing efforts to pursue anti-corruption investigations in
high-profile cases within Bank Mandiri, Bank Negara Indonesia
and state-owned enterprises serve to further strengthen the
government's stance against graft. Clear signs of progress on
this front, together with a commitment to remove bureaucratic
obstacles to investment via deregulation and cutting of red
tape, could further improve investor confidence. Conversely,
failure to maintain macroeconomic stability and continue with a
strong reform agenda could erode the outlook for sovereign
creditworthiness over time.


* Indonesia's Proposed Global Bond Issue Gets B+ Rating
-------------------------------------------------------
On Oct. 4, 2005, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its
'B+' rating to Indonesia's (foreign currency B+/Stable/B; local
currency BB/Stable/B) proposed USD1.25 billion (IDR12.83
trillion) global bonds. The bonds will be issued in two
tranches, one tranche of at least USD750 million (IDR7.7
trillion) maturing in January 2016, and a second tranche of at
least USD250 million (IDR2.57 trillion), maturing in October
2035.

Indonesia's sovereign ratings are supported by the its declining
debt and debt-servicing burden, its track record of conservative
fiscal management, and adequate external liquidity.

President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono's administration has
demonstrated its commitment to fiscal consolidation begun by
previous governments. "Although the government's belated
response to the damaging effects of the fuel subsidy highlighted
weaknesses in policy formulation and coordination, the average
126% fuel price rise on Oct. 1, 2005, sent a positive signal in
its robustness. Notably, the measure also had strong
parliamentary support," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst
Agost Benard.

The price rise should allow the government to cap its fuel
subsidies for 2005 at IDR89.2 trillion (USD8.8 billion; 3.4% of
GDP). This should enable the government to continue reducing its
fiscal deficit to 0.9%-1.1% of GDP this year from 1.3% in 2004,
and to register a primary surplus of about 1.2% of GDP. Ongoing
primary fiscal surpluses enabled a steady fall in public sector
indebtedness over the past four years. Gross public sector debt
is expected to fall to a projected 61.0% of GDP by the end of
2005, from 94.6% in 2001.

By reducing consumption distortion and hence import demand, the
lower subsidies will also ease pressure on the balance of
payments, cutting the estimated monthly USD1 billion spent on
oil imports before the price rise.

Nevertheless, Indonesia's retail fuel prices on average remain
about 45% below world prices. The deficit target therefore
remains vulnerable to further rises in oil prices and interest
rates, although these are not expected to reverse Indonesia's
medium-term progress toward an eventual balanced budget.

Indonesia's ratings are also supported by adequate external
liquidity, despite the fall in reserves this year after central
bank intervention to support the rupiah, and debt repayments.
Its foreign reserves were at USD30.2 billion as of September
2005, up from USD27 billion in 2001, and short-term debt was
negligible. As a result, even with smaller current account
surpluses, the ratio of gross financing requirement to reserves
is forecast to remain a low 60% for 2005. This indicates its
short-term liquidity position is strong compared with its peers.
Standard & Poor's expects Indonesia to maintain adequate
external liquidity with ongoing current account surpluses,
improved investment flows on the back of diminished political
uncertainty, and reforms under the new administration.

The ratings on Indonesia are constrained by its still-high
external  leverage. Public sector net external debt was about
60% of current account receipts in 2004. Although this is lower
than the median level in similarly rated countries, it presents
a heavy amortization profile and remains a source of ongoing
external vulnerability for the medium term.

The ratings are also limited by the country's below-potential
economic growth, which averaged a relatively modest 4.1% in the
past five years. Although growth accelerated in the first half
of 2005 to 5.9% year on year, elevating Indonesia's economy to a
higher growth path needs a sustained rise in its low investment
ratio, which remains below 20% of GDP. This, in turn, hinges on
the government's success in improving the investment climate and
competitiveness by implementing broad microeconomic reforms,
particularly in the judicial, legal, and labor market areas.

"Without such reforms, Indonesia's economy will continue to
underperform, posing a challenge to social and political
stability," said Mr. Benard.

"Nevertheless, progress in these areas--the latest example being
the timing and implementation of fuel price rises--speaks to a
pattern of incremental steps and slow implementation."

CAC CORPORATION: JCR Affirms BBB+ Rating
----------------------------------------
Japan Credit Rating Agency (JCR) has affirmed the BBB+ rating on
the senior debts of Cac Corporation.

CAC is an independent midsize IT services provider. It has been
growing and expanding business frontier and operating base
through mergers and acquisitions (M&A), specializing in
financial institutions, pension, pharmaceutical and food
industries. It has sold off all of the shares in the subsidiary
IXI recently. The sell-off will have significant impact on the
revenue and earnings of the Company.

CAS plans to achieve numerical targets for the intermediate term
by expanding size of M&A. Contributions of the newly acquired
businesses to boosting the earnings are not known at this
moment. Proceeds from sales of IXI's shares reduced financial
burden for M&A for the near future. On the other hand, M&A may
increase earnings volatility, leading to additional financial
risk. If the company's efforts to raise earnings level fail to
produce good results fully, M&A may impair cash flow generation
capability and its stability.

Outlook for the rating is not stable fully.

ANCOM BERHAD: To Purchase Rhodemark Development Shares
------------------------------------------------------
Ancom Berhad furnished Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad details
of the proposed acquisition of a further 9.6 percent equity
interest in Rhodemark Development Sdn Bhd.

(1) Introduction

Ancom Berhad (Ancom) advised that it has entered into a
conditional share sale agreement (SSA) on September 29, 2005 to
acquire an additional 10,300,114 shares of MYR1.00 each
representing 9.6 percent equity interest in Rhodemark
Development Sdn Bhd (RDSB) from Class Team Resources Sdn Bhd
(CTR) for cash consideration of MYR6.0 million (Proposed
Acquisition).

(2) Information on RDSB

RDSB was incorporated on April 13, 1999 in Malaysia under the
Companies Act, 1965. It is a joint venture between Ancom (50.1
percent), CTR (9.6 percent) and Eminent East Limited (EEL - 40.3
percent) established then to acquire the 51.73 percent interest
in Nylex (Malaysia) Berhad (Nylex).

The current authorized share capital of RDSB is MYR150,000,000
divided into 150,000,000 ordinary shares of MYR1.00 each, of
which 107,292,858 ordinary shares have been issued and fully
paid-up.

Pursuant to a capital reconstruction exercise completed in June
2004, RDSB now holds 32.9 percent equity in Nylex and 44.93
percent equity in Tamco Corporate Holdings Berhad (Tamco). Nylex
is listed on the Main Board while Tamco is listed on the MESDAQ
Market of Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad (Bursa Securities)
respectively.

(3) The Proposed Acquisition

(3.1) Rationale

The Proposed Acquisition will allow Ancom to increase its
effective shareholding in Nylex and Tamco. After the completion
of the Proposed Acquisition, Ancom's shareholding in RDSB will
increase from 50.1 percent to 59.7 percent. EEL will hold the
remaining 40.3 percent in RDSB.

At the same time as the execution of the SSA, Ancom, CTR and EEL
will sign a termination agreement to terminate the joint venture
agreement between the parties. Ancom and EEL will enter into a
new joint venture agreement to govern the parties' rights
reflective of the new shareholding structure in RDSB.

(3.2) Consideration

The purchase consideration of MYR6.0 million was derived at on a
willing buyer, willing seller basis based on the net tangible
assets (NTA) value of RDSB as at May 31, 2005.

Ancom will fund the Proposed Acquisition by bank borrowings.

(3.3) Condition Precedent

Pursuant to the listing of Tamco, Bursa Securities had imposed a
moratorium on CTR on the sale of RDSB shares for a period of
three (3) years from the date of listing of Tamco.

The Proposed Acquisition is subject to CTR obtaining a waiver
from Bursa Securities or the Securities Commission for the sale
of its shares in RDSB within 90 days from the date of the SSA.

(3.4) Related Party Transaction

The Proposed Acquisition is a related party transaction as Chua
Ah Lak, a director of CTR, is a past director of Nylex / Tamco
in the last 12 months. Chua Ah Lak is a connected person as
defined under the Listing Requirements of Bursa Securities.

(4) Financial Effects

The Proposed Acquisition is not expected to have any material
effects on the net tangible assets and earnings of Ancom Group.

However, the Company's borrowings will be increased by MYR6.0
million.

(5) Directors' & Substantial Shareholders' Interests

None of the directors or substantial shareholders of Ancom or
persons connected to them has any interests, directly or
indirectly, in the Propose Acquisition.

(6) Directors' Opinion

The directors of Ancom are of the opinion that the Proposed
Acquisition is not to the detriment of the shareholders of the
Company and is in the best interest of the Company.

(7) Documents for Inspection

The SSA will be available for inspection at the registered
office of Ancom at Level 14, Uptown 1, No.1 Jalan SS21/58,
Damansara Uptown, 47400 Petaling Jaya, Selangor Darul Ehsan

C&P HOMES: Amends Capital Restructuring Proposal
------------------------------------------------
At the meeting held Monday, the Board of Directors resolved to
amend the capital restructuring plan approved on 26 September
2005 to change the amount of the proposed increase in the
authorized capital stock of the Company, to wit, said increase
shall now be from Five Hundred Million Pesos (Php500,000,000.00)
divided into Five Hundred Million (500,000,000) common shares
with par value of One Peso (Php1.00) per share to Seven Billion
Pesos (Php7,000,000,000.00) divided into Seven Billion
(7,000,000,000) common shares with par value of One Peso
(Php1.00) per share.

The decision to adjust the amount of the proposed increase in
the authorized capital stock of the Company as aforementioned
was arrived at following confirmation of the amount of the
Company's Long-Term Commercial Papers debts that will be
converted to new shares out of the same capital increase. More
specifically, the Board approved the issuance of a total of
3,681,911,641 shares out of the proposed increase in authorized
capital stock, at par or the total issue price of
Php3,681,911,641.

The Board also approved the corresponding amendment to the
Articles of Incorporation of the Company.

As previously announced, the aforesaid capital restructuring
plan shall be presented to the stockholders of the Company for
the approval at a Special Stockholders' Meeting to be held on
November 14, 2005.

C&P HOMES: Reshuffles Board Committees
--------------------------------------
At the meeting of the Board of Directors held October 3, 2005,
the resignation, effective September 30, 2005, of Ms. Alma P.
Villadolid as an Independent Director of C&P Homes, Inc. (the
Company) was accepted by the Board.

In view thereof, an election was held and Ms. Maria Carolina C.
Mejias was elected as new Independent Director.

Ms. Maria Carolina C. Mejias, 48, is a Certified Public
Accountant who graduated from the Philippine School of Business
Administration with a Bachelor's Degree in Business
Administration major in Accounting. Presently, she is the
President and General Manager of CCM Accounting Firm rendering

more than a hundred clients. Moreover, she also manages her two
other businesses - the JF Mejias Construction & Engineering
Services as Office Manager-Corporate Treasurer and
CICM Enterprises, Inc.(a garments business) as President and

As a consequence of the foregoing, the Board Committees have
been re-constituted as follows:

HACIENDA LUISITA: Impact of Stock Deal Revocation Spreads
---------------------------------------------------------
The impending cancellation of the stock distribution contract
between Hacienda Luisita Inc. (HLI) farmers and management is
expected to affect a move to convert a portion of the Cojuangco
lands in Tarlac to industrial use, BusinessWorld says.

Once the President Agrarian Reform Council implements a
recommendation by Agrarian Reform Sec. Nasser C. Pangandaman to
scrap the HLI stock deal, the sugar estate's pending petition to
extend the land use conversion of the HLI lands from
agricultural to industrial will also be revoked.

HLI has asked for more time to convert portions of the estate
because it failed to fully convert the lands within five years,
as stipulated in a Department Agrarian Reform Order.  The
company also has a pending application to convert an additional
2,700 hectares of land to industrial and commercial use.

A resolution to cancel the stock distribution contract will also
affect the mortgages and encumbrances to the titles of some
parcels of the 6,453-hectare sugar estate.

The Agrarian Reform department has yet to consolidate a position
on the legal ramifications if the stock distribution option is
eventually cancelled.

In 1996, the Agrarian Reform department approved the land use
conversion application of Hacienda Luisita to convert 500
hectares of land in Sitios San Miguel, Luisita and Bantug,
Barangay Ungot, Tarlac, Tarlac from agricultural to industrial.
The move was aimed at creating new jobs given the increasing
population in the hacienda.

In a study commissioned by the firm, the industrialization of
Luisita will mean 30,000 jobs against the present 5,000.

The firm added, the conversion will help the estate's long-term
agricultural economic viability because it will be able to pay
obligations.

In the approval order of former Agrarian Reform Secretary
Ernesto D. Garilao, he set the following conditions: the
conversion will not amend or diminish obligations under the
stock distribution contract; the wages and salaries of the
farmer beneficiaries will not be affected; and the development
of the land must be completed within five years.


LEPANTO CONSOLIDATED: Turnaround Unlikely This Year
---------------------------------------------------
Lepanto Consolidated Mining Co. does not expect to post profit
this year, as the miner has yet to recover from a labor dispute
that temporarily paralyzed operations, according to
BusinessWorld.

Lepanto President and Chief Executive Bryan U. Yap confirmed the
possible loss resulting from the strike, but he added the figure
has yet to be computed.

Despite the miner's forecast, China's Zijin Mining Group Co.
Ltd., and Canada's Ivanhoe Mines Ltd. are still very much
interested to invest in Lepanto.

Hong Kong-listed Zijin is the largest gold producer in China.
Ivanhoe Mines, a Canadian miner for copper, gold and iron ore,
has operations in the Asia Pacific.

Earlier this year, Lepanto secured a US$3-million loan from
Ivanhoe in exchange for granting Ivanhoe priority in negotiating
for rights to its mineral assets. The loan, which bears a 3%
annual interest, was granted under a loan and priority
negotiation right agreement it had signed with Ivanhoe.

Meanwhile, a team of technical and financial personnel as well
as executives from Zijin Mining visited the minesite to do due
diligence on one of the mining projects in Benguet.

Lepanto hopes to rehabilitate its mines after the Sept. 2
resolution of the long-standing labor dispute between the
miner's management and its workers.

For the six-month period, Lepanto incurred a net loss of
Php180.8 million from an income of Php73 million due to lower
gold production and settlement of gold hedging losses amounting
to Php67 million.

MANILA ELECTRIC: Reduced Transmission Charge to Slash Tariffs
-------------------------------------------------------------
Manila Electric Co. (Meralco) customers are likely to enjoy
lower power bills next month as the government reduces
transmission charges on electricity, Today News reports.

Transmission charges paid by Meralco customers will be further
reduced by November, as the government carries out the third
phase of its intra-grid subsidy removal process.

Intra-grid subsidies are those subsidies shouldered by high-
consuming and high-paying customers, which often times result in
charge distortions in the power rates among different classes of
subscribers.

Industrial and non-industrial Meralco clients may enjoy cuts of
as much as Php20.42 per kilowatt-hour in their transmission
charges, while residential and general service clients may see
their bills slashed by Php0.0639.

The reduction in transmission charges will be reflected in
Meralco customer's November billing.

The cut in transmission charges forms part of state-owned
National Transmission Corp.'s implementation of the third phase
of its intra-grid subsidy removal process in accordance with the
provisions of the Electric Power Industry Reform Act (EPIRA).

Total cuts in the transmission charges for industrial and non-
industrial clients stand at Php61.25 per kilowatt-hour, while
those for residential and general service clients already
amounted to Php0.1889.

NATIONAL POWER: Creditors, Investors Concerned Over Delay
---------------------------------------------------------
The delay in the privatization of National Power Corporation
(Napocor) has worried foreign investors and creditors, reports
The Philippine Daily Inquirer.

Finance Secretary Margarito Teves said many of the investment
bankers he met during a meeting in London and New York last week
inquired about the reason for the slow progress in the
privatization of Napocor's assets.

The government's plan original plan to sell 50-70 percent of
Napocor's assets this year has been deferred to next year. Sec.
Teves explained the government is still waiting for three
Napocor creditors to approve the sale before the plan could
proceed.

Napocor creditors' approval is being sought for the transfer of
the assets to Power Sector Assets and Liabilities Management
Corp. (PSALM), the agency handling the privatization of power
plants and distribution facilities.

The major creditors are the Japan Bank for International
Cooperation (JBIC), the Asian Development Bank (ADB) and the
World Bank.

SEc. Teves is confident the government would soon get the major
creditors' formal approval of the transfer, as the ADB and the
World Bank have agreed in principle.

The World Bank expressed its approval last month. The ADB
expressed its willingness to approve the transfer much earlier.

Finance Undersecretary Roberto Tan said JBIC was only awaiting
the decision of the ADB and the World Bank before giving its
consent, but since the two multilateral agencies have agreed in
principle, the JBIC's approval can be expected any time soon.

NICPHIL INSURANCE: Ousted Boss Blames Collapse on Board
-------------------------------------------------------
A former senior official at Nicphil Insurance Inc. traced the
collapse of the veteran insurance firm to the dubious business
decisions of its existing board, The Philippine Star has
learned.

Ex-president Emmanuel Ticzon, who is now the single biggest
shareholder of Nicphil, blamed the board's mismanagement and
poor collection of premiums to the insurance firm's liquidity
issues.

Mr. Ticzon pointed out that Nicphil has been posting consistent
revenue growth since he joined the company in 1994 and up to
2004. He said the company was even ranked as one of the top 35
direct non-life insurers in the country in 2003.

On April 2005, the Nicphil board axed Mr. Ticzon on allegations
he pocketed corporate funds.  The termination came after then
release of an audit report by Nicphil chairman Jesus Nacinto Jr.
and treasurer Roberto Jose Castillo, which revealed that the
firm's cashflow woes were due to substantial payments made to
and for the expenses of Mr. Ticzon.

The liquidity problems then worsened forcing Nicphil to delay
salary payments and accumulate arrears on payment of utilities,
rent and SSS premiums.

In July, Nicphil was prompted to voluntarily suspend operations
at the back of an investigation conducted by the Insurance
Commission.

The move, according to Mr. Ticzon, caused further irreversible
damage to the company with massive requests for cancellation of
paid policies from agents and large-sized intermediary brokers,
demand of cash collateral returns from agents, and demands for
immediate release of contingent profit commissions.

Recently, Nicphil assistant corporate secretary lawyer Miguel
Robillo of the Castillo Laman Law Office pushed for the
dissolution of the company during a recent special shareholders'
meeting. But Nicphil shareholders and their proxies fell short
of the 67-percent required votes to dissolve the company.

ACCORD CUSTOMER: Accused Former CEO to Face New Charges
-------------------------------------------------------
In an update to an ongoing case against Mr. Victor Tan, former
CEO of Accord Customer Care Solutions Limited (ACCS), mobile
phone giant Nokia may file additional claims against the
Company, reports Channel NewsAsia.

Mr. Tan and ACCS ex-chief financial officer Yip Hwai Chong and
former general manager Ang Tse Aun Damien were charged with
several counts of cheating. Together with nine other men, they
had allegedly conspired to cheat Nokia of AGD4.3 million, after
having issued fake phone repair bills to the firm for phones
that were still under warranty. They currently face a total of
183 charges.

According to sources, Nokia may file additional claims against
the Company and Mr. Tan, along with three former senior ACCS
staff, in order to recover what it had paid out to ACCS.

Lawyers for the accused say it is too early to tell how they
would plead; a pre-trial conference was held on Oct. 3, which
was later adjourned to Oct. 31.

PICNIC CORPORATION: SET Drops Probe to Big-Lot Transaction
----------------------------------------------------------
Picnic Corporation Public Co. Ltd. has finally averted the
watchful eye of the Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) when the
bourse said it is satisfied with the clarification made by Intel
Vision Securities, Bangkok Post reveals.

The SET recently instructed Picnic to clarify the big-lot
transaction for the price posted was far higher than the market
price.  Picnic shares were traded on the big-lot board at
THB13.19 a piece, 381 percent higher than the closing price of
THB2.74 on the same day.

In a statement, Intel Vision said that it had sold the shares to
one of its customers under an agreement made a few months back
when the share price was still high.

The explanation prompted SET President Kittiratt Na Ranong to
drop the probe citing the explanations provided by Intel Vision
were so clear, to the point and comprehensive that there would
be no need to dig deeper.

THAI ENGINE: Provides SET with Information on Amended Plan
----------------------------------------------------------
The court issued an order approving the Business Reorganization
Plan (the Existing Plan) of Thai Engine Manufacturing Public
Company Limited (the Company) on December 20, 2000.

The Company informed the Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) for
dissemination to investors on the SET, that on July 7, 2005 the
Plan Administrator filed an application for amendment of the
Existing Plan (Amended Plan) with the official receiver, and the
creditors meeting resolved to accept the Amended Plan on August
4, 2005.

Thereafter, on September 29, 2005 the court issued an order
approving the Amended Plan.

Material particulars can be summarized as follows:

(1) Reason for Application for Amendment of the Existing Plan

The Existing Plan prescribes that the debts and assets of the
Company shall be transferred to two asset management companies
i.e. T.E.M. Asset Recovery Company Limited (TEMAR) and T.E.M.
Business Operations Company Limited (TEMBO).

These two asset management companies were assigned to manage the
assets of the Company and the proceeds thereof would be used for
debt repayment.  Subsequently, the Existing Plan was amended to
accommodate the joint investment of investors in the Company.

However, there was no investor agreeing to invest in the
Company.  This caused the Company to have no source of funds for
carrying out its business and implementing the Existing Plan.

Furthermore, such two asset management companies were short of
working capital for the business operation and have no funds for
repaying debt to the creditors transferring debts to them.

Investors interested to invest in the Company have contacted the
Plan Administrator.  These investors specified the condition
that the Company shall carry out business itself, not through
such two asset management companies to ensure that the Company
will be qualified to apply for permission to have its shares
traded on the SET again.

Moreover, the investors also specified other conditions
regarding the joint investment in the Company which have not
been provided by the Existing Plan.  Therefore, it is necessary
for the Plan Administrator to amend the Existing Plan,
substantial particulars of which are in Clause 2 below.

(2) Summary of Amendment of the Existing Plan

(2.1) Investment of Investors

The Company will procure investors to obtain investment funds in
the amount not less than THB180,000,000 to be used for
purchasing core assets for the business operation from TEMBO in
the amount of approximately THB140,000,000 and for working
capital in the sum of approximately THB40,000,000.

(2.2) Recapitalization

(a) Change of Par Value

The Company will change the par value of shares from THB10 per
share to THB1 per share resulting in the Company having
registered and paid-up capital of THB75,000,000, representing
75,000,000 shares at the par value of THB1 per share.

(b) Capital Decrease

The Company will decrease its registered and paid-up capital by
decreasing the number of shares on a pro rata basis to
20,000,000 shares at the par value of THB1 per share. As a
result, the registered and paid-up capital will be
THB20,000,000.

(c) Capital Increase

The Company will increase its registered capital from
THB20,000,000 to THB200,000,000 at the share value of THB1 per
share, totaling THB200,000,000.  The shares will be offered for
sale to the investors at the price of THB1 per share.

(2.3) Acceptance of Transfer of Assets from TEMBO and Debt
Repayment to Creditors by TEMBO Funds from the investors will be
used to purchase core assets from TEMBO and TEMBO will use such
funds to repay debt to its creditors.  The secured creditors
will receive repayment on the date TEMBO sells it assets to the
Company, and the unsecured creditors will receive repayment
within seven days after TEMBO sells its assets to the Company.

Upon receiving debt repayment the creditors will return
financial instruments to TEMBO, and the creditors agree to
discharge all remaining debt obligations to TEMBO and the
Company, including debt obligations waiting to be discharged in
the amount of THB3,891.58 million, to the Company.

(2.4) Management of TEMBO

TEMBO will no longer be under the management of the Company.
The Company will sell its shares in TEMBO at a price not lower
than the book value as at December 31, 2004.

(2.5) Management of TEMAR

TEMAR will no longer be under the management of the Company.
The management of TEMAR will be as follows:

(a) The Company will cause TEMAR to engage an asset
administrator to manage and collect debts of TEMAR, and the
funds therefrom will be subsequently used to repay the creditors
of TEMAR.  The engagement fee and conditions will be agreed and
negotiated between the Company and the asset administrator.

(b) The Company will sell its shares in TEMAR at a price not
lower than the book value as at December 31, 2004.

Please be informed accordingly for releasing information to the
investors on the SET.

Sincerely yours,
Thai Engine Manufacturing Public Company Limited
