FORTESCUE METALS: Joins Battle for Shovelanna
---------------------------------------------
Andrew Forrest's Fortescue Metals Group has joined the fight for
the rich Shovelanna Hill ore deposit in the Pilbara region,
according to the Sydney Morning Herald.

Fortescue Metals is the fourth company to lay claim to leases
inadvertently relinquished by Rio Tinto last month.

Rio has reportedly lobbied the West Australian Government to
have leases returned under the Mining Act, arguing it would not
be in the public's interest to award the ground to explorer
Cazaly Resources, which applied for the tenements in late
August.

Cazaly is now attracting all BHP Billiton, Rio, Andrew Forrest,
Gina Rinehart and the Wright family - making Shovelanna the most
hotly contested bit of dirt since prospectors Mark Creasy and
Leith Beal waged a 10-year war for the South Bronzewing gold
project.

Shovelanna Hill is potentially one of the most strategic
resources in the Pilbara, between BHP Billiton's Orebody 17 and
Orebody 31 and believed to host rich extensions to the Orebody
18 deposit now being stripped for development.

Cazaly Managing Director Nathan McMahon said a date had not been
set for a Warden's Court hearing, but noted no one had
challenged Cazaly's status as the first to lay claim to arguably
vacant ground. Tenements are typically awarded on a "first-in,
first-served" basis.

FORTESCUE METALS: Inks Additional Sales Agreements
--------------------------------------------------
Fortescue Metals Group Limited advised that it has signed
additional sales agreements representing an aggregate of 7.5
million tonnes per annum (Mt/a) with four Chinese steel mills.
This brings the total sales agreements signed by the Company to
date to 17Mt/a which is 38% of Fortescue's initial planned
production of 45 Mt/a.

These agreements are for terms of 10 years and prices have been
set with reference to industry standards.

The names of the counterparties are confidential. However,
Fortescue can report that three of the steel groups are ranked
within China's Top 15 mills by volume of steel production over
2004. The fourth is a new mill.

Fortescue believes that the current imbalance of iron ore supply
and demand which resulted in the 71.5% price rise effective from
April 2005 is causing international steel mills to actively seek
out future supply lines for iron ore. These new sales agreements
will further underwrite Fortescue's plan of becoming a major
alternative supplier on the world market.

JAMES HARDIE: Staff Strike Over Contract Dispute
------------------------------------------------
Around 240 Workers at James Hardie Industries in Brisbane walked
off yesterday after they failed to reach workplace agreements
with the firm's management, ABC News Online.

The company wants to establish separate agreements for staff
working at a building products plant at Carole Park, west of
Brisbane and a pipe manufacturing facility at Meander, east of
the city.

Steve Baker, from the Australian Workers Union, said the
employees fear the separate agreements will erode their
bargaining power.

Mr. Baker said the company is attacking the employees' rights to
collective bargain, saying it is trying to separate them into
two separate agreements when they've always had one agreement.

James Hardie reportedly decided on the move in abid to raise
penalty rates by up to 30 percent.

QANTAS AIRWAYS: To Focus on Fuel Cost Next Year
-----------------------------------------------
Fuel is the key factor in the coming year for Qantas Airways,
according to Asia Pulse.

Qantas chairman Margaret Jackson said fuel was a major issue for
the airline and would be "the key factor in the year ahead".

The national flag carrier said that its fuel expenditure will be
30 percent of its total operating costs, up from 15 percent in
the year to June 2004 and 19 percent in the year to June 2005.

This financial year, we will face a rise in fuel costs of around
AU$1.1 billion (US$830.28 million), if you take the price effect
alone," Ms Jackson told shareholders at the company's annual
general meeting in Canberra.

She said the airline was able to offset some of expenses through
hedging and surcharges. But the carrier still faces a shortfall
of between AU$400 million and AU$500 million this financial year
compared to last.

Ms. Jackson said these numbers, however, are constantly changing
as fuel prices remain volatile.

"This is going to have a profound impact as we go forward," she
said.

QANTAS AIRWAYS: Adds 5th Non-stop Brisbane-Los Angeles Flight
-------------------------------------------------------------
Qantas Airways Ltd has added a fifth non-stop service from
Brisbane to Los Angeles on the lucrative trans-Pacific route.

Qantas executive general manager John Borghetti said the
introduction of non-stop flights last year between Brisbane and
Los Angeles had been very successful.

"The latest capacity growth reflects the confidence that Qantas
has in further growth in tourism and travel between the USA and
Queensland," Mr. Borghetti said.

Mr. Borghetti said all Brisbane-Los Angeles services would be
operated by two-class Boeing 747 aircraft.

He said further changes to Qantas' US schedules included moving
from eight flights a week on Melbourne-Los Angeles to a double-
daily service - seven operating non-stop and seven via Auckland.

Qantas services between Australia and mainland USA will increase
to a record 39 a week from March 2006 when the airline commences
new services to San Francisco.

The fifth service from Brisbane to LA will begin on January 28,
2006.

TELSTRA CORPORATION: Trims Advertising Budget
---------------------------------------------
Media buyers predict Telstra Corporation's advertising budget
will continue to fall for the current financial year by as much
as AU$30 million, reports the Sydney Morning Herald.

The telco is reportedly trimming AU$90-million promotion costs
by up to a third ahead of a marketing blueprint to be unveiled
to investors next month.

Telstra refused to reveal what proportion of its AU$330 million
total promotion and advertising budget is devoted solely to
mainstream advertising, but the latest recorded figure for the
year ending June 30, 2004, puts it at around AU$92 million, in
itself a 13 per cent drop on the previous year.

The reductions are continuation of the telco's strategy of the
past two years to head away from mass-media advertising in favor
of techniques that demonstrate a quantifiable return on its
investment.

Telstra will unveil a marketing blueprint in the middle of next
month as part of chief executive Sol Trujillo's strategic
review.

Two months ago Telstra and its media buying advisers dismissed
rumors that it was preparing to slash the budget by up to a
third. But now, amid a sharp reduction in spend, some media
buyers have been told to expect further cuts.

TELSTRA CORPORATION: Stake Sale Goes Global
-------------------------------------------
The Federal Government is considering forming a team of
investment banks to sell a big portion of Telstra's shares to
international investors, The Advertiser relates.

The Government is expanding its scope for investment banks to
sell its AU$27-billion stake in Telstra to boost demand fro
stock from global institutions.

The move would pave the way for the Government to sell its 6.4
billion shares with one option being a rapid sale of a parcel of
shares to international institutions early next year before a
public offering to small investors in Australia.

The plan would involve forming a team of investment banks to
sell convertible bonds to global investors.

Investment banks bid to Finance Department officials to win a
role in the sale and share up to AU$100 million in fees.

* ASIC Welcomes Insolvency Reforms Package
------------------------------------------
The Chairman of the Australian Securities and Investments
Commission (ASIC), Mr. Jeffrey Lucy has welcomed the package of
corporate insolvency reforms announced by the Australian
Government.

Speaking at the National Conference of the Insolvency
Practitioners Association of Australia (IPAA) today Mr Lucy said
the initiatives released by the Parliamentary Secretary to the
Treasurer, the Hon Chris Pearce MP, would assist ASIC in
addressing corporate insolvency in Australia.

"ASIC believes the establishment of an Assetless Administration
Fund is a significant and valuable development for corporate
Australia," Mr. Lucy said.

The Assetless Administration Fund will be established to finance
investigations by liquidators in cases where it appears to ASIC
that further investigation and reporting may lead to enforcement
action. This approach utilizes the skills of private sector
practitioners to ensure that ASIC is provided with adequate
information to identify and pursue misconduct by company
officers in the lead-up to a company failure.

"This approach helps close a systemic problem with behavior by
some directors that use corporate structures to deliberately
avoid their responsibilities to creditors by structuring Phoenix
type transactions," Mr. Lucy said.

'Phoenix' activity is typically associated with directors who
transfer the assets of an indebted company into a new company of
which they are also directors. They then place the initial
company into administration/liquidation with no assets to pay
creditors, and continue the business using the new company
structure.

Mr. Lucy said that ASIC will use additional funding provided in
the reform package to establish an enforcement program targeting
misconduct by the officers of assetless companies. This program
will focus on disqualifying directors of assetless companies who
are involved in repeat Phoenix activity and that deliberately
incur debt knowing that creditors will not be paid.

"This initiative is a significant step towards helping honest
business compete on a level playing field and will address
dishonest and unfair behavior that costs business
significantly."

"ASIC looks forward to working closely with the insolvency
profession to ensure the implementation of this important
initiative, and prevent Phoenix type behavior," Mr. Lucy said.

INDUSTRIAL AND COMMERCIAL: Plans to Sell More Stakes
----------------------------------------------------
Industrial and Commercial Bank of China (ICBC) plans to sell
further stakes to foreigners ahead of a listing planned for next
year, Panorama Network reports.

The bank has already signed a deal to sell a 10-percent stake to
a consortium of Goldman Sachs' private equity arm, European
insurer Allianz and American Express Co., for more than US$3
billion.

The lender aims to seal that deal after it turns into a joint
stock holding company by the end of this month and deepens
negotiations on cooperation.

ICBC received US$15 billion cash infusion from the government
earlier this year. As a result, the bank's nonperforming loan
ratio stood at 4.5 percent by the end of June. The bad loan
ratio for loans after 1999 stood at just 2 percent.

---------------------------------------------------------
Sanyo's global restructuring plans will not impact its joint
venture with the BPL Group called Sanyo-BPL, Business Standard
says.

BPL is confident Sanyo is committed its the joint venture and
does not see any adverse effect of the latter's global revamp.

recorder and video recorder businesses, besides scaling down its
home appliances divisions and pruning its workforce globally.

In August 2004, Sanyo inked a 50:50 joint venture with BPL for
which it will pay US$80 million to the BPL Group and, in turn,
BPL would transfer its entire CTV assets (manufacturing units,
sales and marketing network) to the joint venture.

The Sanyo-BPL JV in India would be primarily focused on color
televisions besides refrigerators, microwave ovens and air-
conditioners.

Sanyo-BPL had earlier stated that they will adopt a dual brand

PERTAMINA: May Build Petrochemical Gas Plant in Donggi
------------------------------------------------------
State oil & gas firm PT Pertamina plans to develop a gas block
in Donggi, central Sulawesi by building a petrochemical plant,
reports the Jakarta Post.

According to Pertamina Vice President Mustiko Saleh said that
the Company had originally planned to put up a liquefied natural
gas (LNG) plant, but thinks that petromechicals would be more
profitable. He added that some countries such as Iran had
expressed interest in helping to build a petrochemical plant.

The Company had teamed up with Malaysian oil firm Petroliam
Nasional Berhad (Petronas) to build the LNG plant, but scrapped
the plan after discovering that the Donggi gas block held fewer
gas reserves than previously estimated. Pertamina needs at least
9 trillion cubic feet (tcf) of gas reserves before it can start
builidng a gas plant; the Donggi gas block only has 2.1 tcf of
gas reserves.

However, the Company hopes to raise this amount to 3.5 tcf, by
continuing to drill in search for additional gas reserves.

-------------------------------------------------
State power firm PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN) announced
that on Oct. 11, 2005, Sumitomo Corporation and its partners
were awarded a contract to build a geothermal power plant for
the Company, Bloomberg News reports.

According to PLN president director Eddie Widiono, Sumitomo
Corporation and partners Fuji Electric Holdings Co. and PT
Rekayasa Industri are set to build the IDR289.23 billion , 20-
megawatt PLTP Lahendong II plant in Northern Sulawesi;
construction is set to be completed within 20 months, so as it
could start operations by October 2007.

The construction project, which would be financed by loans from
the Asian Development Bank and the Japan Bank for International
Cooperation, is expected to reduce the Company's fuel use by
50,000 kiloliters, resulting to a savings of around IDR255
billion in fuel expenses. The new plant will enable PLN to be
less dependent on expensive fuel, resulting in reduced subsidy
payments.

PLN aims to slash its fuel use up to 32% by 2007. The Company
says it needs to invest in 47 power plants and 14 high-
transmission power lines nationwide in order to keep up with
demand.

----------------------------------------------
The Industrial Revitalization Corporation of Japan (IRCJ) has
resolved to sell the equity it holds in Fujiyugyo Company Ltd.
Following this sale the IRCJ will no longer hold any equity,
debt or other obligations of Fujiyugyo.

1. Background

On December 19, 2003 the IRCJ approved an application for
assistance by Fujiyugyo under Article 22, Clause 3 of the
Industrial Revitalization Corporation Act of 2003. On February
13, 2004 the IRCJ reached agreement on the purchase of
Fujiyugyo's debt under Article 25, Clause 1 of the same act, and
in March of that year a capital decrease and subsequent
recapitalization was implemented. Since then, the IRCJ has been
supporting the operational management of Fujiyugyo in
cooperation with Fuji Kosan, a sponsor company since Fujiyugyo
was accepted for support.

A certain amount of progress has been made toward
revitalization, enabling the IRCJ to begin preparations for and
reach agreement on the sale of its equity to the sponsor Fuji
Kosan. A sale contract with Fuji Kosan has been formed, and in
line with this contract the transfer of shares is expected to
take place by the end of October 2005.

2. Capital amounts, etc.

The IRCJ, through a capital injection of JPY300 million,
currently holds voting shares amounting to 13.0% of voting
rights in Fujiyugyo. Following this sale, the IRCJ will retain
no shares in Fujiyugyo.

3. Comment from the State Ministers in charge of the Industrial
Revitalization Corporation of Japan: None expressed.

Note on comments from ministers: The IRCJ is a quasi-
governmental organization. As such the IRCJ is required to
obtain comments from the government ministers in charge of the
IRCJ about decisions to assist or engage in other initiatives
relating to private sector companies.

About the IRCJ

The IRCJ was established jointly by the public and private
sector on April 16, 2003, with the aim of providing
revitalization assistance beneficial to both the industrial and
the financial sectors in Japan. It targets assistance at
companies that have sound business fundamentals but are unable
to thrive because of excessive debt levels or other factors. The
IRCJ has approximately 200 employees and is based in Tokyo.

3. Causes for the revisions

(1) Loss on investments in subsidiaries (on a non-consolidated
basis)

As a result of deteriorated operating performance of a
construction business related subsidiary in the U.K. under
Kajima Europe B.V., the holding company of our operations in
Europe, a loss on investments in Kajima Europe B.V. shall be
recorded in the approximate amount of JPY14.5 billion.

The company is reviewing all options available concerning our
construction operations in the U.K.

(2) Loss on restructuring of business (on a consolidated basis)

A loss on restructuring of business shall be recorded in the
approximate amount of JPY5.5 billion for restructuring charges
to be incurred in the U.K.

(3) Increase in interim recurring profit

The non-consolidated recurring profit is projected to reach
JPY19.5 billion, up by JPY4.5 billion against the earlier
projection.

The consolidated recurring profit is projected to reach JPY17.0
billion, up by JPY2.0 billion against the earlier projection,
which is attributable to the improved financial results of
Kajima Corporation as well as overseas subsidiaries in other
countries that enabled us to absorb the loss derived from Kajima
Europe B.V. group.

(4) Decrease in interim net profit

The interim net profit on a consolidated basis shall drop to
JPY3.0 billion, falling short of the earlier projection by
JPY4.0 billion.

The interim net profit on a non-consolidation basis shall drop
to JPY2.5 billion due to the loss on investments in Kajima
Europe B.V. despite an increase in recurring profit.

3. The consolidated and the non-consolidated financial
projections for the full year ending on March 31, 2006 shall be
made available on November 17, 2005 when we officially announce
the interim financial result.

Projections contained herein are based on information available
as at the date of this announcement and are subject to risks and
uncertainties that may cause the actual results to vary.

MITSUBISHI MOTORS: New Eclipse Named 'GT of the Year'
-----------------------------------------------------
Maxim magazine, the highest-circulation men's lifestyle magazine
in the United States, has chosen the all-new 2006 Mitsubishi
Eclipse as "GT of the Year" in its fourth annual "Cars of the
Year" issue.  

The Eclipse was selected from a field of more than 45 vehicles
reviewed by the magazine and will be featured with nine other
winning vehicles in the November 2005 issue of Maxim, scheduled
to hit newsstands on October 15.

"Mitsubishi Motors is excited to receive this award because it
confirms that the Eclipse offers unrivaled performance, styling
and value," said Dave Schembri, executive vice president of
sales and marketing at Mitsubishi Motors North America.  "We are
pleased that Maxim's editors recognize the thrill you get
driving an Eclipse."

Every year, Maxim's editorial board gathers and identifies the
year's most significant new vehicles.  The editors select the 10
that most impress them as "Cars of the Year" and categorize each
according to its segment.  This is the first time a Mitsubishi
Motors product has made the Maxim list.

"The 2006 Mitsubishi Eclipse delivers key features a guy desires
in a sporty car, and it comes at a price that won't drain his
wallet," said Maxim Automotive Editor Jon Wilde.  "The Eclipse
looks fast even while parked, and we truly appreciated the GT
when cranking the 650-watt Rockford Fosgate sound system while
testing the MIVEC-enabled V-6 on the open road."

The 2006 Eclipse, launched in May 2005, is new from the ground
up, including dynamic performance enhancements that now surpass
the Ford Mustang V6 with 263 horsepower and overwhelm the Acura
RSX with 260 lbs.-ft. of torque.  Add to that an eye-catching
bold design, and it's not surprising that Maxim would bestow
this honor upon the Eclipse.

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

COLLEGE ASSURANCE: AGILE Blamed for Collapse
--------------------------------------------
The downfall of the country's top pre-need firms, including
College Assurance Plans Philippines (CAP), was blamed on a
requirement of a U.S. lobby firm to infuse huge capital into the
firms, The Philippines Star reports, citing former Securities
and Exchange Commission Chairman Perfecto Yasay Jr.

Mr. Yasay told the House oversight committee and planholders of
CAP and Pacific Plans Inc. the main culprit for the collapse of
the pre-need firms is the Accelerating Growth for Investment
Liberalization and Equity (AGILE).

The revised actuarial reserve limitation (ARL) was pointed as a
major part of the dire condition of the pre-need industry at
present. ARL is the amount of reserve money that an entity must
have at any time.

"The ARL wreaked havoc on the industry itself. I don't know why
they adopted it (AGILE proposal) hook, line and sinker," Mr.
Yasay said, pointing to Sen. Mar Roxas as the culprit, since it
was he who endorsed it to the SEC, even if it was not under the
Department of Trade and Industry.

Mr. Yasay said that SEC is under the Department of Finance (DOF)
and not under the DTI. SEC is the government body tasked to
regulate pre-need companies, like CAP and Pacific Plans.

To prove his point, the former SEC chief revealed that in 2002,
pre-need firms were compelled to put up a Php2.5 billion ARL,
which grew to Php7.5 billion the following year (2003) and
ballooned to Php15 billion in 2004, which made it very difficult
for companies to cope.

COLLEGE ASSURANCE: Planholders Junk Insolvency Petition
-------------------------------------------------------
College Assurance Plans Philippines Inc.'s (CAP) planholders
have rejected the proposal of a regulator-appointed actuarial
for CAP to file for voluntary insolvency, according to
BusinessWorld.

Maricel Lopez, a lawyer representing CAP planholders, said the
proposal of Isagani de Castro is not viable.

According to Ms. Lopez, the planholders' group opposes the
proposal because urging CAP to file for insolvency will only
give the pre-need firm an upper hand.

Ms. Lopez also clarified that planholders could not file for
insolvency because they are the beneficiaries and not the
creditors.

A CAP official said Mr. de Castro must stop urging CAP to pay
planholders when it is only complying with the suspension of
payments as ordered by a Makati court.

The CAP official also clarified that "huge liabilities do not
necessarily mean that they cannot be met", further stating that
the payment of the obligations are outlined in CAP's business
plan.

Mr. de Castro was reportedly appointed a member of the
Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) panel in the supposed
Actuarial Reserve Liabilities Study Group created by Chairman Fe
Barin.


NATIONAL BANK: Delay in Privatization Seen
------------------------------------------
The National Government is likely to postpone the sale of its
remaining 21 million shares in the Philippine National Bank
(PNB) due to dwindling share prices, The Manila Times reports.

The fall in PNB's share price since its privatization last
August would mean that the government is not likely to sell them
at the same price it did before.

The development has prompted the Philippine Deposit Insurance
Corp. (PDIC) to seek legal basis for the delay.

PDIC executive vice president Cristina Orbeta said there is no
rush to sell government's remaining 21 million shares in PNB,
adding that they are now seeking a legal opinion to postpone the
sale.

By law, government is bound to offer its remaining shares to
small local investors at the same price by mid-December, or 120
days after Aug. 17 when the Privatization Council approved the
transaction.

Ms. Orbeta said that selling government's remaining PNB shares
at Php43.77 each when the market prices are well below it will
only result in a failed bidding. At Php43.77 per share,
government's remaining shares in PNB should yield it another
Php900 million.

The departure of some key officials in the bank, including its
former executive vice presidents Federico Cadiz and Ismael
Sandig, and the probable exodus of managers recruited by its
former president Lorenzo Tan weighed down the issue.

Another issue that weighed down sentiment about the bank was the
reprimand it got from Japanese regulators last September for
selling lottery tickets within its branches and alleged improper
handling of remittances.

PHILIPPINE LONG: Seeks Noteholders' Consent; No Rating Impact
-------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said Wednesday that
Philippine Long Distance Telephone Co.'s (PLDT; foreign currency
BB-/Negative/--) solicitation of consent from holders of some of
its senior notes to amend certain covenants by itself has no
impact on the rating or its outlook. Although the amendments for
11.375% senior notes due 2012 and 10.625% senior notes due 2007
will increase PLDT's flexibility to make restricted payments,
particularly common dividends, its financial profile is expected
to remain consistent with the current rating level.

The company's rating reflects that of the sovereign rating on
the Philippines.
     
PLDT's two most significant proposed amendments that could
affect its credit quality are: (1) a change in the formula for
computing the restricted payments basket, or the amount
available for dividend distribution that PLDT is permitted to
make; and (2)a stricter leverage ratio below 3.5x instead of
4.5x in the previous covenants.

Based on the proposed change, PLDT's restricted payments will be
calculated on a cash flow-based formula (which includes PLDT's
stand-alone EBITDA, cash dividends from subsidiaries and cash
proceeds from the redemption of subsidiary's preferred shares
held by PLDT) instead of net earnings.

Standard & Poor's expects PLDT's increasing focus on delivering
shareholder value through higher dividend policy will not delay
the expected leverage reduction. PLDT generates about US$800
million free cash flow annually. Consolidated debt to EBITDA,
which reached 2x at June 30, 2005, is expected to improve to
below 1.5x by year-end 2006.

PHILIPPINE LONG: Moody's Reviews Ratings for Possible Upgrade
-------------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service on Thursday placed the ratings of
Philippine Long Distance Company (PLDT) on review for possible
upgrade. At the same time, Moody's assigned PLDT a local
currency corporate family rating of Ba2 and placed it on review
for possible upgrade. The review for upgrade results from
continual improvements in PLDT's financial risk profile.

The review will focus on: [1] the sustainability of improvements
in PLDT's operating and financial profile; [2] Prospective capex
requirements, particularly as it relates to any investment in 3G
technology; [3] Possible structural subordination given debt at
the Smart Cellular subsidiary; [4] Ongoing exposure to movements
in the USD/PHP exchange rate; and [5] PLDT's investment
strategy. Moody's expects to complete its review by end-2005.

The ratings on review are:

Local Currency Corporate Family Rating of Ba2

Foreign Currency Senior Unsecured Rating of Ba3

Foreign Currency Senior Unsecured Shelf Rating of (P)Ba3

Foreign Currency Preferred Stock Rating of B1

Foreign Currency Preferred Stock Shelf Rating of (P)B1

Moody's went onto say that PLDT will be approaching holders of
certain bonds, roughly US$312 million, to either gain their
consent to a change in the restrictive payments covenant or to
tender their bonds. The company is offering bondholders a
reduction in its debt incurrence test ratio to 3.5x from 4.5x.
Moody's does not expect either the covenant changes or the
prospective tendering of the bonds to adversely impact PLDT's
credit profile.

PLDT is well advanced in its debt reduction program, which is
leading to lower interest costs, increased cash flows, and
reduced exposure to foreign exchange rate risk. The company is
targeting a reduction of over US$600 million in 2005, and has
already achieved roughly $550 million of this objective. It has
over US$530 million in cash at present.

Moody's notes up to five 3G licences may be awarded in the next
6 months. Upfront fees are unlikely; rather licensees will be
required to provide an operable service offering within 12
months and a ubiquitous offering within 5 years. Current players
are likely to acquire licences and continue to dominate the
market.

PLDT does not expect capex to rise above PhP16-18 billion per
annum. This projection encompasses funding for both 3G build-out
and fixed-line network upgrades. Such a level of capex
represents only a moderate increase on current levels.

Moody's continued to say that PLDT's current foreign currency
senior unsecured debt rating of Ba3 is above the Philippines'
foreign currency country ceiling of B1. The foreign currency
senior unsecured debt rating incorporates convertibility risk,
which is the likelihood of the government declaring a debt
moratorium to counter a foreign currency crisis. Moody's views
foreign currency bonds subject to international law as less
likely to be subject to a debt moratorium than foreign currency
obligations subject to local law.

Therefore, a differential is present between PLDT's foreign
currency bond rating and the sovereign rating. As such, PLDT's
foreign currency bond rating is a function of its own risk of
default and the probability of a Philippine government default
on its foreign debt (implied by its B1 rating), the likelihood
that the government would declare a moratorium in the event of a
default, and if it did, the chances that it would exempt a
company such as PLDT.

Philippine Long Distance Company, based in Manila, Republic of
Philippines, is that country's leading provider of integrated
telecommunications services.

THAI PETROCHEMICAL: PTT Confident in Investment's Success
---------------------------------------------------------
PTT Plc is optimistic that there would be no hitches on their
planned investment in Thai Petrochemical Industry PCL by its
debt-restructuring time limit, reveals The Nation.

According to PTT President Prasert Bunsumpun, if the November 4
deadline cannot be honoured, the company would be willing to
extend the validity of the Memorandum of Understanding if
necessary.

Pichit Akrathit, managing director of MFC Asset Management, the
manager of the Vayupak Fund, said the fund's THB6.6-billion
payment should be made before November 4.

"We're ready to pump in the money as soon as the Central
Bankruptcy Court rules that new investors are allowed to call
for a shareholders meeting after TPI exits from the debt-
restructuring process," Mr. Pichit said.

Mr. Pichit said the Vayupak fund was ready to switch some of its
THB10-billion holdings in bonds to TPI and the rest will be
invested in the initial public offerings of state enterprises,
primarily Egat Plc and TOT Plc.

A court ruling will be released on October 25 to determine the
right of new investors to call a meeting, so they can shake up
TPI's board of directors, now dominated by TPI founder Prachai
Lephairatana.

Meanwhile, TPI issued a request to the Central Bankruptcy Court
to extend its rehabilitation by three months to the end of March
2006.

The court has scheduled the hearing for the extension of the
rehab plan on November 1.

PTT wants to have a 30 percent stake in TPI, while the
Government Pension Fund and Vayupak will hold a combined 20 per
cent. The Government Savings Bank and other parties will buy 10
per cent.

TPI POLENE: To Seek Extension of Restructuring Process
------------------------------------------------------
TPI Polene mulls of asking the Central Bankruptcy Court for an
extension of its debt-restructuring period by one year to
December 2006, Bangkok Post reports, citing the plan
administrator, Prachai Leophairatana.

The move was to protect TPI Polene from the impact of price-
cutting by rivals which is a result of fierce competition in the
cement industry.  The planner plans to file the petition this
month.

Stiff competition in the local cement market, which has led to a
decline of cement price by THB150-200 per tonne now from last
year, has adversely affected its performance.

Senior Vice-President Prasert Ittimekin said creditors have
allowed the extension of the plan since the beginning of the
restructuring process.
