CASH KING: Ordered to Refund Customers
--------------------------------------
The Federal Court of Australia has on Wednesday handed down a
judgment finding that a western Sydney finance broker and lender
engaged in misleading and deceptive conduct.

The case brought by the Australian Securities and Investments
Commission (ASIC) showed that the misconduct had occurred on
over 200 occasions.

Cash King Pty Ltd (Cash King) consented to Federal Court orders
restraining it from making representations or engaging in
conduct found to be misleading and deceptive, and in an
Enforceable Undertaking provided to ASIC, has also agreed to
repay amounts totaling over AU$170,000 to more than 50
customers.

ASIC's Executive Director of Consumer Protection, Mr Greg Tanzer
said Cash King overcharged its clients in a number of ways,
including arranging hidden commissions from one lender.

"Brokers and lenders have a duty to act fairly and honestly with
their clients," Mr. Tanzer said.

In making its orders, the Court relied on agreed facts,
including facts to the effect that Cash King had been misleading
or deceptive by:

(1) having a secret arrangement with a lender under which Cash
King increased the establishment fee payable by the customer and
received 65 per cent of the increased fee as a hidden
commission. (ASIC's investigation revealed that Cash King earned
additional commissions of over $2,000 from some clients in this
way);

(2) making some customers pay a brokerage fee when Cash King was
the lender and no broker was involved. It also charged some
customers legal fees when Cash King did not use a lawyer, and
therefore, did not incur any legal fees. (Inquiries made by ASIC
showed that the alleged legal fees exceeded $1,000 in some cases
and that the brokerage fees were around $700);

(3) placing advertisements which stated that there were `no
upfront fees' when this was not true. In fact, customers were
required to pay upfront fees and these fees were not refundable;

(4) overcharging customers by making them pay enforcement costs
and expenses that were higher than the costs and expenses it had
actually incurred, or by making them pay costs or a higher
interest rate for defaulting, when those consumers were not in
default; and

(5) sending letters to a number of customers offering to pay
partial `refunds' of overcharged amounts after ASIC's
investigation had commenced. Representations contained in the
letters suggested that ASIC considered partial refunds to be an
adequate remedy or to cure the misleading conduct when this was
not the case. ASIC's position was, in fact, that only a total
refund of the overcharged amount would be appropriate.

"Cash King's advertisements attracted clients in financial
difficulties, and those least able to protect their own
interests. Some of these people were worried about losing their
homes, and Cash King profited by charging them extra fees or
earning hidden commissions," Mr. Tanzer said.

"Compensation for customers, who were overcharged or misled is
an appropriate remedy. However, this case shows that people need
to be careful and get advice about refinancing when they are in
financial difficulty, especially if they use their home as
security. Sometimes people can end up paying costly fees to
lenders and brokers, and still end up in a position where their
home is at risk of being sold," Mr. Tanzer added.

FELTEX CARPETS: Godfrey Eyes Pending Decision on Merger
-------------------------------------------------------
Godfrey Hirst is hoping to come up with a decision in the next
few weeks on whether or not to proceed with a merger with
competitor Feltex Carpets Limited, Dow Jones Newswires relates.

The two carpet rivals are due to meet in Melbourne on Monday to
continue discussions on Australia-based Godfrey Hirst's proposal
to merge their operations.

"We need to make headway now so we will be looking for some
genuine progress on Monday and, on the back of that, to decide
whether there's logic in proceeding," Godfrey Hirst finance
director Jim Walsh said.

Feltex had asked for time to consider Godfrey Hirst's merger
proposal while it undertakes a wide-ranging operational review
aimed at reviving its flagging fortunes.

FORTESCUE METALS: Inks Land Access Deal with Native Claimants
-------------------------------------------------------------
The Pilbara Native Title Service, on behalf of the Yamatji
Marlpa Barna Baba Maaja Aboriginal Corporation (PNTS) and
Fortescue Metals Group Limited (Fortescue) announced that formal
agreement on "whole of claim" land access has been reached
between Fortescue and each of the three native title claimant
groups who have lodged native title claims over the areas
covered by Fortescue's Pilbara Iron Ore and Infrastructure'
mine, rail and port project (the Project). The agreements allow,
from a native title perspective, the immediate commencement of
the Project.

The three native title claimant groups are the Nyiyaparli People
(whose claim covers most of Fortescue's initial proposed mining
areas), the Palyku People (whose claim covers the balance of the
proposed mining area and a significant section of the proposed
Fortescue Rail corridor) and the Kariyarra People (whose claim
covers the remainder of the rail corridor and the port area at
Port Hedland). Each have executed with Fortescue, Land Access
Agreements, which together cover all the mines, port and rail of
the Project area.

These Agreements also create immediate and life-of-project
benefits for all the claimant groups in the Project area. They
also provide for the grant and renewal of all tenure required
for Fortescue's project, protection of Aboriginal cultural
heritage and environment, and employment opportunities for
Pilbara Aboriginal people as an outcome of a Vocational training
program to be established by Fortescue.

Fortescue and the PNTS thank the elders and the people of the
claimant groups for their consideration and support in the
signing of these important agreements.

FORTESCUE METALS: To Undertake Equal Distribution of Capital
------------------------------------------------------------
Fortescue Metals Group Limited advised that it has recently
mailed information to its shareholders relating to a proposal to
undertake an equal reduction in capital to provide for the
divestment of its wholly owned subsidiary Allied Medical Limited
through an "in specie" distribution of Allied shares to
Fortescue shareholders.

Fortescue's decision to review a range of divestment options for
Allied Medical is driven by the desire for the Company to
concentrate solely on the business of developing its Pilbara
Iron Ore and Infrastructure Project. The in specie distribution
is being presented to shareholders at the forthcoming Fortescue
Annuial Meeting on November 8, 2005.

If shareholders vote in favor of the share distribution
resolution and the Board rakes the decision to pursue the
disposal of Allied Medical.

Fortescue also advised that as reported in the West Australian
newspaper, it has made an application for prospective ground
known as Shovelanna Hill. The subject land is not part of
Fortescue's proposed mining area within the Chichester Ranges.

HUDSON TIMBER: Judge Varies Previous Orders
-------------------------------------------
The Board of Directors of Hudson Investment Group Limited (the
Company) announced that at a stay application hearing held
Monday, October 10, Justice Tobias varied the Orders previously
entered by Justice Einstein on September 13, 2005.

On September 22, 2005, Hudson Timber Products Limited, its
subsidiary companies, Australia Hardboards Limited and AH Bremer
Park Pty Limited (the Corporate Defendants) filed a Notice of
Appeal. The Corporate Defendants also filed a Notice of Motion
seeking orders that the Orders made by Justice Einstein on
September 13, 2005 be stayed, pending finalization of the
appeal.

The Corporate Defendants agreed that they would only press for a
stay of the orders that related to the granting of a mortgage in
the sum of AU$10 million to the Company. The Corporate
Defendants agreed not to seek a stay of the balance of the
orders made by Justice Einstein.

The Company and the Corporate Defendants were about to agree
that the orders in respect of the mortgage would be stayed,
pending finalization of the appeal, but only on the condition
that the Corporate Defendants:

(1) are restrained from selling, charging, assigning,
mortgaging, or otherwise dealing with or disposing of any of the
proceeds arising from a disposal of the Land (without first
obtaining the written consent of the Company); and

(2) are restrained from charging or mortgaging any part of the
Land (without first obtaining the written consent of the
Company).

The Company also sought agreement from the Corporate Defendants
that they would consent to the Company registering a non-lapsing
caveat over the Land. The Corporate Defendants refused to agree
to these terms, and so this issue needed to be dealt with by
Justice Tobias at Monday's application. After hearing
submissions from both sides, the Company was successful in its
arrangement and so the Corporate Defendants have been ordered by
the Court to consent to the registering of a non-lapsing caveat
over the Land.

The hearing of the Appeal has also been expedited and the Appeal
is expected to be heard in early 2006. The Company will be
filing a Notice of Cross Appeal, seeking to overturn Justice
Einstein's rulings in respect of the Bremer Share Sale aspect of
the litigation.

As a consequence of the hearing, the orders made on September
13, 2005 by Justice Einstein as follows, have now been
confirmed:

(1) a declaration that Bruce William McLeod did not have
authority to execute or enter into the First Deed of Amendment
to the Entitlement Deed dated June 20, 2001.

(2) a declaration that the First Deed of Amendment to the
Entitlement Deed is and has at all times been void.

(3) a declaration that in purporting to execute and enter into
the First Deed of Amendment to the Entitlement Deed, Bruce
William McLeod and Peter Cecil Holland (the Director Defendants)
contravened their duties as directors of the Company.

(4) a declaration that Bruce William McLeod did not have
authority to execute or enter into the Second Deed of Amendment
to the Entitlement Deed dated September 5, 2001.

(5) a declaration that the Second Deed of Amendment to the
Entitlement Deed is and has at all times been void.

(6) a declaration that in purporting to execute and enter into
the Second Deed of Amendment to the Entitlement Deed, the
Director Defendants, contravened their duties as directors of
the Company.

(7) An order that the Entitlement Deed dated June 8, 2001
between the company and Australian Hardboards Limited be
specifically performed.

(8) an order that Australian Hardboards Limited forthwith to the
extent not yet paid, pay AU$3.5 million to the Company in
accordance with the Entitlement Deed.

(9) an order that the Corporate Defendants and the Director
Defendants pay the Company's costs of the proceedings that
related to the issues of the Entitlement Deed.

(10)an order that the Company pay the Corporate Defendants costs
of the proceedings that related to the issues of the Bremer
Share agreement.

As previously advised, the costs awarded to the corporate
Defendants for the Bremer share sale agreement aspect of the
litigation were of a substantially lesser amount than the costs
of the Company for the Entitlement Deed aspect of the
litigation, and no costs order was made against the company in
favor of the Director Defendants in relation to the Bremer Park
share sale agreement part of the litigation.

MAYNE GROUP: Anxiety Brews After Demerger News
----------------------------------------------
Shares in healthcare conglomerate Mayne Group dived nearly 4
percent on Tuesday as brokers assess the firm's plan to split
its business into two, The Advertiser says.

Investors took the knife to Mayne Group, as shareholders
expressed dismay over the higher demerger costs and lower
dividend payment shown in the company's explanatory released.

Shareholders will vote on the fate of the demerger next month,
which will see the group split into two. The domestic healthcare
business will be known as Symbion Health and the international
pharmaceuticals division, Mayne Pharma.

Mayne said it aims to complete the demerger of Mayne Pharma from
Symbion Health before the end of this year.

Rival Sigma and international private equity firm Ironbridge
Capital have been named among several parties said to be
interested in buying parts of the Mayne Group. International
private equity firm Apax is reportedly also having a look.

MYER LIMITED: Great Dame to the Rescue
--------------------------------------
Coles Myer acknowledge the need for a Christmas campaign to
strengthen the position of the chain of stores of its ailing arm
Myer Limited over the holidays, Sydney Morning Herald says.

The retail giant will launch next month a new advertising
campaign featuring the "suburban housewife" Dame Edna Everage, a
character developed and played by actor Barry Humphries.

Mr. Humphries described the television and print advertisements
as the meeting of two great Dames, adding that it's business as
usual for Myer.

But nothing could be further from the truth, as parent company
Coles Myer is finalizing its information memorandum for
potential buyers of the beleaguered department store chain Myer.

The 13 parties that have expressed an interest in the chain
range from private equity firms Newbridge Capital and Catalyst
Investment Managers to South African retailer Edgars
Consolidated and former Coles Myer Chairman Solomon Lew.

The Myer family, which holds a 5-percent stake in the parent
company, is also an interested party, as is David Jones, which
is in initial talks with all of the private equity firms.

David Jones earlier this week signaled its intention to Myer by
signing French lingerie firm Simone Perele to an exclusive
supplier deal, cutting Perele's long-standing ties with Myer.

Last month, Myer reported an AU$15-million loss for the second
half of the last financial year and a profit margin of 1.25
percent, well below the AU$14.3 million profit of its rival,
David Jones.

NORTHERN AIR: Liquidation Looms for Territory Carrier
-----------------------------------------------------
Northern Air Charter is likely to go into liquidation, just
three months after being rescued by a southern businessman,
Northern Territory News reports.

The airline's former owner Philip George has admitted its
company would not be able to pay debts due to its dire financial
standing.

Northern Air Charter owes money to other airlines for the hire
of planes, fuel suppliers and maintenance companies.

Mr. George revealed the business had been sold to Melbourne -
based Australasian Jet, which had agreed to take on all of the
15 staff.  He denied he had avoided Northern Air's debts by
declaring the firm broke but selling the business to
Australasian Air. He stressed he had lost a hefty amount he
invested in the carrier.

Mr. George owned half of Northern Air Charter until July 1 when
he bought the rest from   Stefan Wood. He said he did not check
the airline's books until the taxation office had sent him an
unexpected bill for several hundred thousand dollars. He said he
believed he had done "one hell of a job" saving all the jobs.

PRIMELIFE CORPORATION: Winding Up of Investment Scheme Completed
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Federal Court of Australia has made final orders completing
the winding up of an unregistered managed investment scheme (the
Scheme) involving the Montclaire Hostel and Primelife
Corporation Limited (Primelife) following proceedings brought by
the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC).

After considering a report from an independent accountant
concerning the past affairs of the Scheme as well as the views
of all investors, Mr. Justice Goldberg of the Federal Court of
Australia noted that the Scheme had been effectively wound up by
virtue of:

(1) a deed of settlement between Primelife and the Scheme
investors pursuant to which the principal asset of the Scheme
was sold back to Primelife; and

(2) the net proceeds of that sale, having been returned to
investors in the Scheme.

Following on from ASIC's investigation into the Scheme (amongst
a number of other similar schemes which are currently before the
Court), and having obtained orders for the winding up of the
Scheme, with the consent of the defendants to the proceedings,
ASIC had already ensured:

(1) the appointment of an independent accountant to review the
Scheme books and records so as to, amongst other things,
identify the assets and identity of investors in the Scheme and
to provide a report outlining the findings of this review to the
Court; and

(2) all investors receiving a copy of the report of the
independent accountant and having adequate opportunity to
consider proposals to wind up the Scheme and deal with the
Scheme Assets.

Given the completion of the above process, ASIC informed the
Court that it now saw its main role in the completion of the
winding up process as being to provide the Court with:

(1) relevant information concerning any proposals made about how
the Scheme should be wound up; and

(2) its views about any such proposals, including bringing to
the Court's attention any possible difficulties.

In these proceedings ASIC did not oppose the proposal put
forward by the investors about how the Scheme should be wound
up.

These final orders follow earlier orders made by Mr Justice
Goldberg of the Federal Court of Australia by consent on 1 June
2005, regarding these and five other ASIC proceedings.

"ASIC will continue its efforts to wind up each of the schemes
and to remove the continued risk posed by the ongoing existence
of schemes that do not comply with the Corporations Act. ASIC
will continue to work to ensure investors in these schemes
obtain both proper disclosure and protective rights over the
assets of the schemes," ASIC's Executive Director of
Enforcement, Ms Jan Redfern said.

Ms. Redfern reiterated that ASIC's proceedings should not cause
any disruption to the residents of the retirement villages and
aged care facilities operated by Primelife.
Background

On 23 September 2004, ASIC filed 37 proceedings in the Federal
Court of Australia seeking, amongst other things, orders that an
investigating accountant be appointed over each of the schemes
to report to the Federal Court to ascertain the position of each
of the schemes. ASIC also applied for the schemes to be wound
up.

ASIC alleges that the schemes are not registered, as required
under the Corporations Act. ASIC brought the Federal Court
proceedings against Primelife and a number of other defendants
including parties who, ASIC alleges, have been involved in
promoting and managing the schemes to a large number of
investors since 1997.

ASIC entered into terms of settlement with Primelife in the
proceedings on 1 April 2005.

While ASIC has entered into terms of settlement with Primelife,
the proceedings against the other defendants are ongoing. The
agreement with Primelife foreshadowed a further two proceedings
being brought by ASIC. In accordance with the agreement, ASIC
filed two further proceedings in the Federal Court of Australia
seeking similar relief on 22 June 2005.

DAEWOO INDIA: GM Drops Plans to Acquire Car Plant
-------------------------------------------------
American carmaker General Motors has finally called off plans to
buy the defunct car plant at Surajpur in Uttar Pradesh (UP) from
the beleaguered Daewoo Motors India, TechWhack News reveals.

The U.S.-based auto giant blamed the government for delaying the
out-of-court settlement of Daewoo's lenders and the Asset
Reconstruction Company of India Ltd (ARCIL), the agency in
charge of the Daewoo facility sale.

The three major parties involved were ICICI Bank, Industrial
Development Bank of India (IDBI) and Exim Bank. ICICI and Exim
Bank have already sold their exposures to ARCIL while IDBI has
transferred its exposure to the stressed assets stabilization
fund to take care of the non-performing assets of the entity.

General Motors has already waited for around three long years in
hope of buying the plant and start producing their version of
the small car, which is so very popular in the Indian market.

The Daewoo plant in UP has production capacity of 85,000 cars a
year and was used to manufacture the cute little Daewoo Matiz.
With Daewoo gone, the plant is stuck between the creditors and
the potential parties interested in buying the property. GM
acquired the company and had shown interest in taking over the
manufacturing unit. However, it no longer would be the case.

CIPUTRA DEVELOPMENT: Launches Rights Issue to Restructure Debt
--------------------------------------------------------------
Property development group PT Ciputra Development plans to
launch a rights iussue as part of a creditors' agreement to
restructure the Company's IDR debt before year-end, reports
Bisnis Indonesia.

The Company has until December to carry out the agreement with
its creditors, wherein six subsidiaries and land property is to
be turned over to investors, while four units must change into
foreign investment (PMA) firms after creditors take over.

When the rights issue is completed, creditors are slated to own
58% of Ciputra Development, while the founding shareholders
would retain a 25% stake in the Company.

The Ciputra family presently holds 60% of Ciputra's stake, but
it will continue to be a controlling shareholder in the Company
since financial institutions would be holding the 58% stake to
be sold off.

PERTAMINA: Fuel Subsidy Overpaid Due to Price Differences
---------------------------------------------------------
State oil firm PT Pertamina says that the reason for a IDR3.64
trillion cost difference in last year's fuel subsidy is a
differing price basis in the calculations, reports the Jakarta
Post.

According to Company Finance Director Alfred Rohimone, the price
difference comes when Pertamina buys the crude part of a
contractor's domestic market obligation (DMO) and uses a global
price to export the fuel. The Company sets off the subsidy
against revenues based on the DMO price and transfers the
additional revenues to the state, as crude oil is exported.

Pertamina Chief Controller Wahyu Susminto said that the Oil &
Gas Upstream Regulatory Agency required such procedure.

The Supreme Audit Agency (BPK) discovered that last year's fuel
subsidy may have been overpaid by IDR3.64 trillion in an audit
on fuel subsidies for 2004.

Ministry of Finance Director Mulia Nasution said, however, that
if they have paid too much for the fuel subsidy, they would just
carry it over to this year's account. He said that the Ministry
of Finance and the Ministry of Energy & Mineral Resources always
check Pertamina's requests for fuel subsidies before disbursing
any money.

The budget for fuel subsidies this year is IDR89.2 trillion, and
the government had already disbursed IDR78 trillion as of August
2005. Pertamina has asked for IDR14 trillion in subsidies this
month, but the request is currently pending approval.

PERTAMINA: To Spend IDR36 Trillion on Libya Exploration
-------------------------------------------------------
In order to start the development of two recently acquired oil
blocks in Libya, state-owned oil and gas firm PT Pertamina will
depend on its German partner Commerzbank AG to provide IDR36.41
trillion, the Jakarta Post reports.

The Company, which has a 30-year contract on the blocks, expects
to produce from 190,000 to 200,000 barrels/day for its Sirte
block in the Sahara desert, while its offshore block in Sabratah
is slated to produce 40,000 barrels of oil per day and up to 435
million standard cubic feet/day of gas.

According to Pertamina Vice-President Mustiko Saleh, Commerzbank
will finance the exploration 100%, in exchange for 45% of the
Company's production share. Pertamina will function as the main
operator and major stockholder with 55% stake in the project,
while the remaining 45% stake will be held by Commerzbank.

The Libyan government will get 11.7% from the Sabratah block and
8.8% from the Sirte block. Drilling is set to begin next year,
with the Sirte block to begin first as the onshore exploration
equipment is already in place. Mr. Saleh hopes to begin
production by 2009.

DELPHI CORPORATION: Files Voluntary Chapter 11 Reorganization
-------------------------------------------------------------
Delphi Corporation (NYSE:DPH) announced that in order to
preserve the value of the company and complete its
transformation plan designed to resolve Delphi's existing legacy
issues and the resulting high cost of U.S. operations, Delphi
and 38 of its domestic U.S. subsidiaries filed voluntary
petitions for business reorganization under chapter 11 of the
U.S. Bankruptcy Code on Saturday in New York City.

Delphi's non-U.S. subsidiaries were not included in the filing,
will continue their business operations without supervision from
the U.S. courts and will not be subject to the chapter 11
requirements of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. Delphi's global
management team will continue to manage both the U.S. and global
businesses.

Delphi expects to complete its U.S.-based restructuring and
emerge from chapter 11 business reorganization in early to mid-
2007.

"Our global operations, both U.S. and non-U.S., will continue
without interruption," said Robert S. "Steve" Miller, Delphi's
chairman and CEO. "Our customers all over the world can be
assured that we will continue to meet their scheduling, delivery
and production needs in a timely manner. Throughout this
reorganization of our U.S. businesses and beyond, we will be
intensely focused on continuing to provide all of our customers
with leading-edge technology, product development, superior
engineering, outstanding quality products and services, and
world-class customer support."

Delphi plans to finance its global operations going forward with
USD $4.5 billion in debt facilities plus additional committed
and uncommitted financing lines and/or securitization facilities
in Asia, Europe and the Americas. The financing includes USD
$2.5 billion borrowed from prepetition revolver and term loan
facilities and a commitment for up to USD $2 billion in senior
secured debtor-in-possession (DIP) financing from a group of
lenders led by JPMorgan Chase Bank and Citigroup Global Markets,
Inc. The company plans to obtain approval of an adequate
protection package for the benefit of its prepetition lenders as
part of the Company's overall financing activities.

The proceeds of the DIP financing together with cash generated
from daily operations and cash on hand will be used to fund
post-petition operating expenses, including its supplier
obligations and employee wages, salaries and benefits. The
overall liquidity available to Delphi (including more than USD
$1 billion on hand outside the U.S., which Delphi does not plan
to repatriate to fund U.S. operations) will support its global
operations outside the U.S. and help ensure the continued
adequacy of working capital throughout its global business
units.

"We took this action because we are determined to achieve
competitiveness for Delphi's core U.S. operations, and the key
to accomplishing that goal is reducing these costs as soon as
possible," said Miller. "We simply cannot afford to continue to
be encumbered by high legacy issues and burdensome restrictions
under current labor agreements that impair our ability to
compete. We must also realign our global product portfolio and
manufacturing footprint to preserve our core businesses. This
will require a substantial segment of our U.S. manufacturing
operations to be divested, consolidated or wound-down through
the chapter 11 processes. We believe the chapter 11 process will
provide the flexibility to address our legacy issues and allow
us to take advantage of the fundamental strength of our
businesses."

Miller said that Delphi has been engaged in constructive
discussions with representatives of its major unions, but was
unable to complete the necessary modifications to its collective
bargaining agreements without assistance from General Motors
Corporation or intervention of the U.S. courts. "Having been
unable to resolve our U.S. legacy issues out of court," Miller
said, "we determined it was in Delphi s best interest to address
the U.S. cost-structure issues through the chapter 11 process
now while our liquidity position is strong. We will be making a
further proposal this month to each of our unions to transform
our labor agreements to a competitive labor cost structure and
to address non-profitable and non-strategic U.S. operations. In
addition, we expect to address pension plans and health and
retiree benefits to align them with competitive benchmarks in
the industry and our transformation plan."

Delphi noted that its non-U.S. subsidiaries are generally
competitive, cash flow positive and experiencing high growth
opportunities. "One of our primary goals is to preserve and
continue the strategic growth in non-U.S. operations while we
address our U.S. cost structure issues through the chapter 11
process," said Miller. Delphi filed more than 40 "first-day"
motions along with its voluntary petitions covering Delphi's
employees and business operations, post-petition DIP financing,
continuing supplier relations, customer practices, certain
executory contracts, taxes and related matters, utilities,
retention of professionals and case administration matters. The
company said it expects that the Bankruptcy Court will hold
hearings on the first-day motions following the Columbus Day
holiday observed in the U.S. and, in the interim, will approve
bridge orders granting interim relief with respect to employees
and business operations, continuing vendor relations and
customer practices pending the Court's consideration of first-
day hearings. Delphi will issue a further press release this
weekend regarding the Bankruptcy Court's consideration of
Delphi's request for the entry of interim bridge orders and
providing further information about its chapter 11
reorganization cases including the date, time and location of
the hearing on Delphi's first day motions.

Among other matters, the relief anticipated from the Bankruptcy
Court this weekend and at the first day hearings next week would
permit the company to continue to pay wages, salaries and
current benefits of U.S. hourly and salaried employees and
certain retiree benefits without disruption and in the same
manner as before the filing. Similar relief for employees in
Delphi's subsidiaries outside the U.S. is not required because
they will continue to be paid in the ordinary course of business
without court supervision.

"The Board of Directors, the senior management team and I
greatly appreciate the loyalty and support of our employees,"
said Miller. "Their dedication and hard work are critical to our
success and integral to the future of Delphi."

Delphi also noted that the execution of its transformation plan
through the chapter 11 process may give rise to the incurrence
of additional prepetition claims as collective bargaining
agreements, executory contracts, retiree health benefits and
pension plans, and other liabilities of the company are
addressed and resolved to maximize stakeholder value going
forward. There is no assurance as to what values, if any, will
be ascribed in the chapter 11 cases as to the value of Delphi's
existing common stock and/or any other equity securities.
Accordingly, the company urges that the appropriate caution be
exercised with respect to existing and future investments in any
of these securities as the value and prospects are highly
speculative.

More information on Delphi's U.S. restructuring, including
access to Court documents and other general information about
the chapter 11 cases, is available at www.delphidocket.com.
Delphi has also set up two separate toll-free information lines:
one for specific supplier inquiries, 866-688-8679 or
248-813-2601, and another for employees, customers, shareholders
and other interested parties, 866-688-8740 or 248-813-2602.

The international operations of the Group include Canada,
Mexico, Europe, Middle East, Africa, Asia-Pacific and South
America. Non-U.S. subsidiaries are not included in the U.S.
filing and are not subject to court supervision or Chapter 11
Process.

JAPAN AIRLINES: Provides Aid For Pakistan Earthquake Relief
-----------------------------------------------------------
Japan Airlines announced on Wednesday that it will provide free
cargo shipments of relief goods for earthquake aid in Pakistan
from Japanese government agencies, local governments in Japan
and public organizations, such as the Japanese Red Cross.

The airline does not fly to any destinations in Pakistan but
will carry relief goods and materials from airports in Japan to
destinations on the JAL overseas network in the Asia region such
as Singapore, Bangkok and Delhi, as requested by the agencies
concerned.

JAL will also provide free air transport on the JAL network for
staff of public organizations, such as the Japanese Red Cross
and official Japanese aid organizations that the airline has
worked with in the past, until further notice.

Details on shipping procedures are available from JAL offices in

sent from Japan only.

Standard & Poor's Ratings Services recently placed its 'BB-'
long-term credit ratings on Japan Airlines Corp. (JAL) and its
wholly owned subsidiary, Japan Airlines International Co. Ltd.,

over the possible impact of a series of recent operational
safety problems on the company's financial profile.

MITSUBISHI MOTORS: MMNA Breaks Ad Campaign for Raider Truck
-----------------------------------------------------------
Mitsubishi Motors North America (MMNA) today unveiled its
national advertising campaign to support the launch of its all-
new Raider midsize truck. Created by Mitsubishi's world-renowned
advertising agency, BBDO, the multi-media campaign's debut
television commercial will appear beginning the week of Oct. 3.
Commercials will air during Major League Baseball Divisional
Series, League Championship Series and the World Series, CBS
College Football, and NFL regional and national games, including
Monday Night Football.

The Raider ad campaign is directly in line with Mitsubishi's new
brand direction, celebrating the company's reputation for
standout styling, outstanding performance and world-class
engineering, while wrapping the product message in Japanese pop
culture imagery known as "J.Cool." In addition, the Raider ads
convey that this truck is distinctly different from others on
the road. For example, print ads show the truck in an aggressive
stance with Japanese Zen strokes in the background, with ad copy
reading "It will never, ever play nice with other trucks" and
"You must promise to only use it for good."

"The Raider ads are the next evolution of our hugely successful
new 'Driven to Thrill' brand campaign that started with the
Eclipse," said Dave Schembri, MMNA executive vice president of
sales and marketing. "They really position our product message
as uniquely Mitsubishi. The copy and creative shows the Raider
truck truly is the alpha male in its segment."

The first television commercial, a :30 spot titled "King of the
Hill," depicts the Raider in a Samurai-style showdown with a
not-identified competitive-brand truck. After ravaging the
hillside performing a slew of off-road maneuvers highlighting
the truck's prowess and capabilities, the Raider comes to a
face-off with another midsize truck. The scene is set to J.Cool
Taiko drum music, reinforcing the tone of the overall brand
campaign.

The spot also will be shown on FOX's "Best Damn Sports Show" in
conjunction with weekly college football preview segments and
live "Raider Tailgate" broadcasts with signage, on-air graphics
and logos. In addition, it will run in select markets over the
next month on primetime shows, including "Lost," "Desperate
Housewives," "Law & Order SVU," "The Apprentice," "CSI" and
"Saturday Night Live" and on major national cable networks such
as USA, TBS, TNT, FX, A&E, E!, Comedy Central, ESPN, FOX Sports
and FOX News. Additionally, the print campaign kicks off in
November issues of a number of consumer and auto enthusiast
publications slated to hit newsstands in the beginning of
October.

"We wanted to make a competitive statement about the all-new
Raider truck, but in a way consistent with our creative
approach," said Bill Bruce, EVP and executive creative director
at BBDO New York. "The new advertising embraces those elements
that are uniquely associated with Mitsubishi's 'J.Cool,' then
literally shows the competition react as it is challenged by the
new Raider."

In addition to print and television, outdoor, on-line and point-
of-sale materials also reinforce the excitement of owning and
driving a Mitsubishi Raider and incorporate J.Cool elements with
painted Zen strokes that emulate Japanese alphabet characters
and a truck's tire markings in the mud.

Raider print ads will appear in publications such as GQ, Maxim,
Men's Health, Rolling Stone, ESPN Magazine, Sports Illustrated,
Car and Driver, Motor Trend, Truck Trend and Road & Track, while
traditional outdoor billboard ads will show up in multiple
markets from September through November. The Raider's online
presence will be seen on AOL, Edmunds.com, Kelley Blue Book,
Yahoo autos and Yahoo sports as well as MSN.

The all-new 2006 Mitsubishi Raider is the second of three new
products MMNA will introduce in 12 months. Designed to appeal to
truck buyers and those looking for fresh alternatives to mid-
size sedans and SUVs, Raider is available in a combination of
extended and double cab body styles, two- and four-wheel drive
and equipped with six-passenger seating and class-leading rear
legroom.

Mitsubishi Motors North America, Inc., (MMNA) is responsible for
all manufacturing, finance, sales, marketing, research and
development operations of Mitsubishi Motors Corporation in the
United States. Mitsubishi Motors currently sells coupes,
convertibles, sedans, trucks and sport utility vehicles through

Further to the announcement made on April 12, 2005 on Public

Berhad (Metacorp) advised that pursuant to Paragraph 8.15(1) of
the Listing Requirements of Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad
(Bursa Securities), the public shareholding spread of Metacorp
according to the Record of Depositors as at September 21, 2005
was 24.85 percent, representing a shortfall of 0.15 percent from
the minimum public shareholding spread of 25 percent.

Metacorp was unable to regularize its public shareholding spread
within the extension of time of six (6) months which expires on
October 12, 2005. The number of public shareholders of Metacorp
holding not less than 100 shares was 5,209.

PAN MALAYSIA: Unit Placed in Creditors' Voluntary Winding Up
------------------------------------------------------------
Pan Malaysia Holdings Berhad (PMH) issued to Bursa Malaysia
Securities Berhad details of the creditors' voluntary winding-up
of subsidiaries of Pengkalen (UK) Plc (PUK) (In Liquidation).

(1) Introduction

The company advised the Bourse that two wholly owned
subsidiaries of PUK, namely, Central Cocoa Pte Ltd (CCPL) and
Wellon Distribution Pte Ltd (WDPL) had, at their respective
Extraordinary General Meetings both held on October 11, 2005,
passed resolutions to wind-up the companies by way of creditors'
voluntary winding-up (the Voluntary Winding-Up). Mr. Goh Ngiap
Suan care of Goh Ngiap Suan & Co. Pte Ltd has been appointed as
Provisional Liquidator for the two companies.

PUK is a 84.12 percent-owned subsidiary of PMH. PUK is currently
under creditors' voluntary winding-up.

(2) Details of the Subsidiaries Companies

Details of the subsidiaries of PUK are as follows:

Company Name          Date of                Country of     
                      Incorporation          Incorporation  

CCPL                  October 16, 1985       Singapore

WDPL                  May 19, 1982           Singapore



          Principal                 Cost of Investment
          Activities                Subsidiaries

          Dormant                   GBP638,902

          Dormant                   GBP31,945

(3) Effects of the Voluntary Winding-Up

When PUK was placed under creditors' voluntary winding-up in
2004, the consolidated financial statements of the PMH Group did
not deal with PUK and its subsidiaries from the date PUK was
placed under creditors' voluntary winding-up. Accordingly, the
Voluntary Winding-Up is not expected to have any material
financial or operational impact on the PMH Group for the current
financial year ending December 31, 2005.

(4) Rationale

The Voluntary Winding-up is pursuant to PMH's continuing
rationalization efforts to divest and wind-up non-core
businesses and focus its resources on core businesses and income
generating operations, and the creditors' voluntary winding-up
of PUK.

(5) Directors' and Major Shareholders' Interests

None of the Directors, major shareholders and persons connected
with the directors and major shareholders of PMH has any
interest, direct or indirect, in the Voluntary Winding-Up.

-------------------------------------------------------------
Further to the announcement dated August 30, 2005 and the reply

Berhad that its subsidiary, Perstim Industries Sdn Bhd, has
agreed with Limaran Logistics Sdn Bhd (Limaran) for the
foreclosure of forty million (40,000,000) ordinary shares of
MYR1.00 each (Foreclosure Shares) in the capital of PSC-Naval

SOUTHERN BANK: Moody's Eyes Possible Upgrade of D- Rating
---------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has placed Southern Bank Berhad's D-
bank financial strength rating (BFSR) on review for possible
upgrade. Southern Bank's Baa2/Prime-3 long-term/short-term
deposit and Baa3 subordinated debt ratings are unaffected, and
their outlooks remain stable.

The review for possible upgrade reflects Southern Bank's ability
to improve profitability, despite being a smaller bank in a
highly competitive environment, as well as its declining non-
performing loans (NPLs), most of which came with its acquisition
of a number of NPL-laden finance companies in 2000 and 2001.

While the bank's strength in the consumer- and small and middle-
market business segments and efforts in strengthening risk
management have underpinned its improving performance to date,
Moody's also recognizes Southern Bank's efforts at growing non-
interest income, which should serve to further diversify its
earnings base. For instance, Southern Bank has already
established strong market positions in wealth management
(through its unit trust and asset management operations) and in
credit cards (in both the issuing and merchant acquiring
businesses).

To this end, Southern Bank is awaiting regulatory and
shareholder approvals to acquire Asia General Holdings (AGH) --
a Singapore-incorporated regional insurance holding company with
operations in Singapore and Malaysia.

The BFSR review will examine the sustainability of Southern
Bank's core profits and trends in its asset quality. In
addition, because the AGH-acquisition could pose integration
challenges and dilute management resources, the review will also
look at how the insurance business will be integrated into
Southern Bank, the presence of any synergistic impacts on
earnings and the effect of its financing on its capital
structure.

The ratings affected are:

Bank financial strength rating of D-, on review for possible
upgrade

The ratings not affected are:

Foreign currency long-term/short-term deposit ratings of
Baa2/Prime-3 and foreign currency subordinated debt rating of
Baa3. The rating outlooks are stable.

Headquartered in Kuala Lumpur, Southern Bank had consolidated
group assets of MYR31.8 billion (US$ 8.4 billion) as at June 30,
2005.

ATLAS CONSOLIDATED: Toledo Copper Mine Nears Restart
----------------------------------------------------
The Toledo copper miner owned by Atlas Consolidated Mining and
Development Corporation will resume production in about a year,
The Manila Times reports.

The mine, which was previously shut down in due to a typhoon and
low metal prices, was rehabilitated owing to a strong demand
from China and other Asian industrial powerhouses.

An upswing in copper prices to record levels of nearly US$4,000
a ton were positive, but the mine would still need to turn a
profit during any future down cycle to avert the problems of the
past.

A typhoon in 1993, followed by heavy mudflows during a period of
low metals prices owing to a world supply glut left Atlas with
heavy debt. The copper price that year fell to less than
AU$2,000 a tonne.

A revamped Atlas has since bought back some Php8 billion in debt
before copper prices rebounded and started rehabilitation work
on the site.

Much of the old infrastructure remains at Toledo, Cebu. The
facility is expected to yield 175,000 tons a year of concentrate
containing about 50,000 tons of copper.

PILIPINO TELEPHONE: Clarifies Profit Report
-------------------------------------------
Pilipino Telephone refers to a Philippine Stock Exchange letter
of 11 October 2005 requesting confirmation of the information
contained in the news article entitled "Forex gains boost Piltel
profit in 9 months" published in the 11 October 2005 issue of
the Philippine Daily Inquirer.

The article reported in part that:

"The sustained strength of the peso against the Japanese yen in
the third quarter boosted the profit of Pilipino Telephone
Corporation by more than Php600 million in the first nine
months", said Debbie Tan, head of Piltel's investor relations
unit.

Tan said that by the end of the third quarter, the year-to-date
forex gains would be higher than the first half level.

PLDT President Napoleon Nazareno said the third quarter profit
of the country's biggest phone company would match, if not
surpass, the second quarter net earnings of Php8 billion."

Please be informed that Piltel is currently finalizing its
financial reports for the nine months ended September 2005 and
expects to announce the same on 7 November 2005. PLDT's
consolidated financial results are expected to be announced on 8
November 2005.

PRIME ORION: To Restructure Bank Loans
--------------------------------------
Prime Orion Philippines Inc. is working to restructure its
loans, according to BusinessWorld.

The firm said it is in talks with a major creditor bank to
consider dacion en pago, or payment in kind, of some
collateralized assets to settle existing loans.

Prime Orion Chairman Felipe U. Yap and President and Chief
Executive Yuen Po Seng told shareholders the management aims to
complete the loan restructuring negotiations with other lenders
next year.

The company is in the course of business reformation, including
cost reduction and productivity enhancement programs to
strengthen core assets. It said it had made progress in the
rehabilitation of ailing unit Lepanto Ceramics Inc. and the debt
restructuring of loans.

Subsidiary Orion Brands International, Inc. earlier sold a 14-
percent stake in Pepsi-Cola Products Philippines, Inc. to Hong
Way Holdings, Inc. and Orion Land, Inc. as part of the group's
restructuring plan. The sale reduced Prime Orion's consolidated
ownership in Pepsi-Cola to 22.16 percent from 35.98 percent.

The company used the proceeds of the sale transactions to pay
inter-affiliate advances and acquire the loans of Lepanto
Ceramics from foreign creditors.

Orion Brands also acquired in May and June this year the
outstanding loans of Lepanto Ceramics to Hong Kong and Shanghai
Banking Corp. Ltd. and Bank of America. The acquisition settled
the group's loan and reduced its consolidated loans and
interest.

Another unit Tutuban Properties, Inc., the developer and manager
of Tutuban Center in Divisoria, Manila, posted a 6% growth in
rental revenues for the fiscal year 2005 to Php464 million from
Php438 million.

Prime Orion assured stockholders that the group will continue to
implement business strategies that will strengthen its core
competencies in its major operations.

UNIWIDE HOLDINGS: Axed Workers Enjoy Entitlements
-------------------------------------------------
Uniwide Holdings has started paying separation benefits to 269
retrenched workers of the Uniwide Sales Warehouse Club,
BusinessWorld reports.

The distressed firm has reportedly doled out around Php1.8
million to pay its initial batch of 64 former employees, who
were sacked after the collapse of the business. Claims range
from about Php10,000 to more than Php49,000.

Uniwide's offer, however, is significantly lower compared with
employees' claims, which union president, Deo M. Tiongson,
earlier said could reach as much as Php50 million including
longevity and loyalty claims. Some of the employees have worked
for Uniwide from 15 years to 28 years before being retrenched.

Labor and Employment Sec. Patricia A. Sto. Tomas earlier assumed
jurisdiction over Uniwide's supposed separation payments for
those that have served beyond six years, and certified the case
for compulsory arbitration by the labor relations body.

The commission's chairman, Benedicto Ernesto R. Bitonio, Jr.,
confirmed the case had already been raffled off but declined to
name the arbiter who will handle the case.

POWER-P: Explains 20% Excess in Total Revenues
----------------------------------------------
As stated in the 2005 Second Quarter Interim Financial Statement
of Power-P Public Co. Ltd. the company posted a total revenue of
THB100.11 million and net profit of THB11.64 million while in
the same period of last year it had a total revenue of THB10.52
million and net profit of THB2.30 million.

Therefore, the company's net profit increased THB9.34 million or
about six times compared to last year's profit. Moreover, the
company's revenue structure of 2005 is totally different from
2004. The reasons of its operating results exceeding 20 percent
came from the increase of total revenue to THB89.59 million as
follow:

(1) Revenue from construction increased THB86.29 million due to
progression in each project which started from last quarter. The
company realized the revenue by percentage of completion of the
period.

(2) Income on project termination THB11.10 million came from
compensation of two terminated projects by two percent of each
contract.

(3) Interest income THB2.11 million came from loan to a venture
in Joint Venture UBC Power by issuing the promissory note with
interest rate MLR+1 percent.

(4) Gain on reversal of liabilities THB0.38 million came from
cost reduction of last year project from the subcontractor.
