AUSTRALIAN GAS: Loy Yang Secures Refinancing
--------------------------------------------
The Australian Gas Light Company (AGL), as a foundation
shareholder in Great Energy Alliance Corporation Pty Limited
(GEAC), which owns the 2,200 megawatts Loy Yang Power station in
Victoria's Latrobe Valley, announced that Loy Yang Power has
refinanced AU$2.1 billion in senior bank debt facilities.

This follows an extensive review of refinancing options as
announced in August 2005 to take advantage of favorable debt
capital market conditions.

The refinancing extends Loy yang Power's bank debt maturity
profile, complementing the long-term nature of the asset,
resulting in lower interest costs through improved credit
margins.

"AGL, as a 32.5 percent investor in Loy Yang Power, is pleased
with the refinancing package. Loy Yang Power is a highly
competitive, quality asset and the new senior bank debt
structure recognizes these attributes as well as the significant
economic life of the asset," AGL Managing Director Greg Martin
said.

"Conditions in the project finance market have enabled this
refinancing to be completed on more favorable terms than the
previous bank debt facilities and will deliver additional value
to the owners of Loy Yang Power."

Loy Yang Power was purchased by GEAC in April 2004. The other
GEAC shareholders include The Tokyo Electric Power Company
(32.5%), Commonwealth Bank investors (15.2%), Motor Trades
Association of Australia Superannuation Fund (10.3%), Mitsui &
Co. (5.6%) and Westscheme (3.9%).

G RETAIL: Creditors, Administrators to Meet This Week
-----------------------------------------------------
Creditors of failed retailer G Retail Limited will meet the
company's administrators this week, according to the Sydney
Morning Herald.

The creditors, who are mainly merchandise suppliers, want to
know whether they can recoup a total of AU$4.5 million owed to
them by the embattled retailer.

Administrator Peter Yates and his team from Deloitte have
scheduled a meeting with creditors today, as talks continue over
a last minute sale.

G Retail went into administration last week after the Gowing
family's listed invested vehicle, Gowing Bros, signaled its
intention to leave retailing for good when it set off the chain
of events that put the retailer into administration.

Gowing Bros, now a shares and property investment vehicle which
also holds an 18 per cent stake in G Retail, ruined sale talks
between G Retail and the privately owned mens' and boys'
retailer Lowes.

Due to liquidity issues, G Retail appointed Deloitte which is
now trying to determine if it can sell the business as a going
concern.

On Friday, the administrators admitted they were now not only
trying to find a buyer for the retail business but are also
trying to negotiate a sale by Gowing Bros of the brand name for
use in retailing. A stalemate over using the Gowings name saw
the collapse of talks with Lowes last week.

The Deloitte's men are also trying to negotiate a renewed lease
in the landmark store.

The administrators are working towards trying to sell the
business by the end of November. They have already axed 10 of
the 190 Gowings staff.

MYER LIMITED: Confidentiality Agreement Upsets Investors
--------------------------------------------------------
Potential investors of the beleaguered Myer Limited are dismayed
over an extensive confidentiality agreement, The Australian
says.

Some of the 20 parties interested in buying the AU$450-million
department store chain are complaining bitterly about the
agreement, which they say will give parent Coles Myer an
effective veto power over their choice of adviser.

Bidders for Myer are required to sign the 20-page agreement
before they obtain an information memorandum with detailed
financial data.

The parties claimed the document is unprecedented in its scope
and power. One of their main concerns is that Coles Myer could
effectively exercise its veto power over any buyer's adviser,
and arbitrarily exclude any party it suspected of violating the
confidentiality of the deal.

The document may also block potential bidders from tendering for
other retail assets, just as a swath of other businesses come up
for sale, including the discount retailer Miller's and dozens of
Action stores owned by MetCash.

Coles Myer has rejected the complaints, with a spokesman saying
there are "numerous prospective bidders that have been perfectly
happy to sign the document". Indicative bids for Myer are due in
early December.

But dissatisfaction with the strict confidentiality requirements
among some potential bidders suggests that Coles Myer may not
receive as much for Myer as it hopes.

NATIONAL AUSTRALIA: Boss Rules Out Share Buyback
------------------------------------------------
National Australia Bank (NAB) Chief Executive John Stewart is
not considering a share buyback, as the bank invests its capital
into its restructuring program, The Advertiser has learned.

Mr. Stewart said NAB was set to allocate AU$2.5 billion into its
business in the next three years as part of the ongoing recovery
from the aftermath of last year's foreign exchange trading
scandal.

NAB recently reported a record profit of AU$4.13 billion, though
that headline figure was inflated by one-offs.

The bank's underlying cash earnings actually fell by 4.4 percent
to AU$3.31 billion, and concerns about the bank's high level of
costs sent its shares sharply lower.

NAB also failed to announce a share buyback, following the
recent AU$500 million buyback announced by the Commonwealth Bank
of Australia and AU$700 million from Westpac.

QANTAS AIRWAYS: September Group Traffic Up 7.4%
-----------------------------------------------
National flag carrier Qantas Airways Limited saw its September
group passenger traffic rise by 7.4 percent, Reuters reports.

However, growth for its full-service domestic service was only
0.5 percent higher as it battled budget airlines including its
own low-cost offshot, Jetstar.

Qantas said its group seat load factor, which measures how
successfully it fills the seats on its aircraft, rose by 3.1
percentage points to 78.3 percent, while group capacity
increased by 3.2 percent.

Jetstar passenger traffic -- or revenue passenger kilometers, an
industry standard measuring seats sold and distance flown --
soared by 47 percent in September, compared to a year earlier.

Its load factor rose by 4.3 points to 79 percent.

But its full-service domestic carrier, competing against Jetstar
and rival Australian budget airline Virgin Blue, had a 0.2 point
dip in load factor to 81.2 percent. The number of passengers it
carried fell by 2.9 percent to 1.368 million.

Jetstar carried 458,000 passengers, up 37 percent.

Qantas said passenger traffic on its main international service
rose by 7.4 percent and capacity edged only 0.2 percent higher,
resulting in the load factor up 5.2 points to 78 percent.

R WYNHOVEN: Mortgage Broker Faces 63 Fraud Charges
--------------------------------------------------
The Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) has
brought a total of 63 fraud charges against former mortgage
broker, Mr. Ron William Wynhoven of Teesdale, Victoria.

A former director of financial services business, R Wynhoven &
Associates Pty Ltd (now in liquidation), Mr. Wynhoven, 49, was
charged with operating an unlicensed services business (one
count); fraudulently inducing persons to invest money (50
counts); breaching directors duties (five counts); and obtaining
financial advantage by deception (eight counts).

ASIC alleges that Mr. Wynhoven operated R Wynhoven & Associates
Pty Ltd (trading as "Seed Home Loans") without holding an
Australian financial services license (AFSL). ASIC also alleges
that Mr. Wynhoven induced a number of his clients to not only
refinance their existing home loans through his business, but to
use the equity in their homes to obtain a larger loan, which
would provide the clients with funds to invest with R Wynhoven &
Associates. ASIC alleges that to convince the clients to do so,
Mr. Wynhoven made a number of misrepresentations to the clients
about the nature of the proposed investments, the level of risk
involved, and anticipated high returns.

In addition, the commission alleges that Mr. Wynhoven used
$493,829 of approximately $1 million invested by his clients to
either financially support Seed Home Loans or purchase interests
investments in his own name or in the names of companies of
which he was a director.

Mr. Wynhoven was not required to enter a plea and is next
scheduled to appear in Geelong's Magistrates Court for a mention
on 9 December 2005. The matter is being prosecuted by the
Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions.

Background
The two companies operated by Mr. Wynhoven were R Wynhoven &
Associates Pty Ltd and Seed Finance and Investments Pty Ltd.

On 22 December 2003, ASIC commenced urgent injunctive action in
the Federal Court of Australia against Mr. Wynhoven and the
above companies.

On 24 December 2003, ASIC obtained Federal Court orders freezing
the assets of the two companies. Orders were also obtained which
restrained Mr. Wynhoven from receiving any further funds from
investors.

On 20 April 2004, ASIC was successful in having the Federal
Court appoint provisional liquidators to the two companies.

In September 2004, ASIC received information that Mr. Wynhoven
had breached the Federal Court injunction obtained on 24
December 2003 by receiving $12,000 from two investors in late
August 2004. As a result, ASIC commenced proceedings that Mr.
Wynhoven was in contempt of Court.

On 25 October 2004, Mr. Wynhoven pleaded guilty in the Federal
Court to contempt of the Federal Court. The Federal Court then
made the following orders:

- that a liquidator be appointed to Mr. Wynhoven's two
companies;
- that Mr. Wynhoven be disqualified from acting as a director of
any company for five years; and
- that Mr. Wynhoven be banned from participating in the
financial services industry, until further order.

The liquidator of the two companies has since reported there are
no funds available to return to investors.

TELSTRA CORPORATION: Fate of Employees Hangs on Rehab Plan
----------------------------------------------------------
The fate of thousands of Telstra Corporation employees is
expected to hang on an announcement from new Chief Executive Sol
Trujillo this morning, the Sydney Morning Herald reports.

Mr. Trujillo will unveil what is supposed to be a company-
transforming blueprint to streamline the telecom and position it
for growth. The plan is expected to include the loss of up to
9000 jobs.

The strategy is not just important for Mr. Trujillo, whose
performance will be judged against his ability to execute the
plan, the blueprint will also be the most important weapon for
investment banks that will be attempting to sell the
Government's final stake in Telstra (T3) in a year's time.

While all eyes will be on the new strategy, which is expected to
have a major influence on the whole telecom industry, Mr.
Trujillo has made his presence felt with changes at Telstra.

Telecom rivals are reviewing their own strategies and
consolidation is predicted after Mr. Trujillo changed Telstra's
tune on offering wholesale services to rival telecom companies.
AAPT and Optus have talked about aggressive bargaining by
Telstra on voice and broadband resale, which includes the
removal of special deals previously made available to Telstra's

Speculation of an AAPT sale, which was recently confirmed by its
parent Telecom Corp of New Zealand, was believed triggered by
Telstra's new focus on keeping customers to itself.

TELSTRA CORPORATION: New World Wants Tie-up with Rival
------------------------------------------------------
Hong Kong cellular carrier New World Mobile Holdings Limited is
looking to forge a preliminary deal with Telstra Corporation,
which operates the rival CSL network in Hong Kong.

The Oriental Daily Newspaper reported Monday that Telstra's CSL
mobile arm and New World Mobile would set up a joint venture
company to be 75-percent held by CSL.

A combination of the two mobile carriers would make it Hong
Kong's largest cellular carrier by subscribers, with about 2.65
million subscribers and annual turnover of US$770 million.

In October, Telstra said it was considering merging CSL with
another operator. New World Mobile, one of two Hong Kong
carriers without a third-generation mobile license, said last
month that it was studying ways of integrating its network with
another local carrier's.    

New World Mobile shares have doubled in the past two months amid
tie-up expectations.

RANBAXY LABORATORIES: Wins 2 Patent Claims, Loses 1 in U.S.
-----------------------------------------------------------
Ranbaxy Laboratories Limited (Ranbaxy) announced that the U.S.
District Court for the District of Northern Illinois has ruled
for Ranbaxy on two patents and against Ranbaxy on a single claim
of a third patent. The court preliminarily enjoined Ranbaxy from
marketing its clarithromycin, one gram extended release product.

While this decision does not apply to the 500 mg ER product, the
court's ruling provided clear direction for the changes in
Ranbaxy's labeling to make both products noninfringing.  Ranbaxy
will be entering into discussions with FDA to amend its labeling
for the as-yet unapproved 500 mg ER tablet to remove language
that implicates the single claim at issue in the third patent.  
The judge's opinion will be taken into consideration in these
discussions with FDA and when amending the labeling for the 500
mg ER formulation such that Ranbaxy can launch the 500 mg ER
tablets immediately upon approval.

According to Malvinder M. Singh, President & Executive Director,
Ranbaxy, "The ruling on Clarithromycin 1000 mg ER does not
impact Ranbaxy's plan to introduce Clarithromycin 500 mg ER
which, subject to USFDA approval, remains on-course."

Clarithromycin tablets are indicated for the treatment of a wide
variety of bacterial respiratory tract infections, including
chronic bronchitis and acute maxillary sinusitis.

Ranbaxy Pharmaceuticals Inc. (RPI) based in Jacksonville,
Florida, is a wholly owned subsidiary of Ranbaxy Laboratories
Limited (RLL), India's largest pharmaceutical company.  RPI is
engaged in the sale and distribution of generic and branded
prescription products in the U.S. healthcare system.

Ranbaxy Laboratories Limited, headquartered in India, is an
integrated, research based, international pharmaceutical company
producing a wide range of quality, affordable generic medicines,
trusted by healthcare professionals and patients across
geographies.

Ranbaxy's continued focus on R&D has resulted in several

Drug Discovery Research. The Company's foray into Novel Drug
Delivery Systems has led to proprietary "platform technologies",
resulting in a number of products under development.  The

TELEKOMUNIKASI INDONESIA: Satellite Launch Faces Another Delay
--------------------------------------------------------------
The twice-delayed launch of two satellites for state
telecommunications firm PT Telekomunikasi Indonesia (Telkom) was
delayed again last week, this time due to technical problems,
reports Reuters News.

Officials of the Arianespace rocket launch company postponed a
mission to launch two commercial satellites via a European
Ariane-5 rocket in French Guiana last Nov. 12, 2005. According
to sources at the Guiana Space Center in Kourou, French Guiana
said that a launchpad problem had caused the delay, and that a
new launch attempt was expected within 24 hours.

The Ariane-5 rocket is set to launch two satellites, one for an
American telecommunications operator, and another, named Telkom-
2, for Telkom. The Telkom-2 will replace the Company's Palapa B4
satellite, which had expired two years ago.

* Government Cuts Total Debt by 25%
-----------------------------------
The Indonesian government is aiming to reduce its foreign debt
to about 25% of its total debt, which would be safer for state
finances, Asia Pulse reports.

According to State Treasury Director General Mulia P. Nasution,
the state foreign exchange debt comprised 50% of its total debt
as of March 2005. Lowering the ratio would reduce the risk of an
increase in debt repayments every time the local currency
weakens.

Mr. Nasution did not say how the government would reduce its
foreign exchange debt ratio. He also added thatthe government
targets to keep debt below 60% if its gross domestic product
(GDP); Indonesia's debt currently stands at IDR1.28 trillion,
52% of its GDP.

----------------------------------------------------
Hanaro Telecom unveiled to the U.S. Securities and Exchange
Commission its third-quarter results for 2005.

-- Hanarotelecom records KRW361.7 billion in revenues, KRW15.0

the third quarter of the year 2005.

-- The company achieves improvement in operating results by
reducing marketing expenditure and increasing revenues.

-- The company will focus on enhancing profitability through
continuous network upgrade and business rationalization.

Hanarotelecom incorporated (KOSDAQ: 033630) (NASDAQ: HANA)
(Hanaro), Korea's leading integrated telecommunications company
providing a broad range of broadband Internet and voice
services, announced its third-quarter results for 2005.

The company stated that it posted revenues of KRW361.7 billion
and EBITDA of KRW129.0 billion, and as a result of increased
revenues and reduced marketing expenditure, achieved a
turnaround by posting operating profit of KRW15.0 billion.

Due to continuous growth in value added services of broadband
and Internet telephony (VoIP), revenues grew 2.2 percent (q-q),
EBITDA grew 18.9 percent (q-q), and posted EBITDA margin of 35.7
percent, a 5.0 percentage point increase from the second
quarter. Accordingly, net losses narrowed to KRW16.5 billion
from KRW33.2 billion in the previous quarter.

0.3 percentage point to 1.5 percent from the previous quarter.

In a strategic bid to enhance service competitiveness via
network upgrades, the Company made significant investments in
100Mbps fiber-optic LAN services similar to FTTH (Fiber To The
Home) from the beginning of this year, which led to Optical LAN
coverage that encompasses 3,200 apartment complexes and 1.90
million households (about 40% of the complex coverage), and
secured the accumulated net add of about 320,000 subscribers for
its Optical LAN service.

Last September, Hanaro decided to continually pursue business
rationalization plans in a bid to revamp operations by
reorganizing the company with a main focus on service/sales
functions, while streamlining its support functions.

Mr. Dominic A. Gomez, Chief Operating Officer, said, "By
leveraging the consolidated subscriber base that encompass about
3.7 million broadband subscribers, we will strengthen our
service competitiveness by providing bundled and differentiated
services incorporating broadband, voice and value added services
to our current subscribers." He also added, "At the same time,
we will enhance profitability by expanding the proportion of our
own networks and streamlining sales channels."

ABS-CBN BROADCASTING: Loses Ratings War with GMA
------------------------------------------------
ABS-CBN Broadcasting Corp. is conceding its defeat in this
year's ratings war with GMA Network Inc., Malaya reports.

ABS-CBN Chief Financial Officer Randolph Estrallado said the
network expects airtime revenues for the rest of the year to
decline. The network admitted there is too little time to snatch
the lead from GMA.

Since late last year, GMA won the ratings war, gaining from
strength to strength, with its new soaps shooting to the top-
slot.

ABS-CBN's audience share for the third quarter was 35 percent, a
slight improvement from 34 percent from the previous quarter.
Its rival has 47 percent, from 46 percent from the previous
quarter.

ABS-CBN, which for years has been using the current ratings as
its barometer of its popularity, said it does not have problems
with the ratings as it only measures viewership in Metro Manila.
Mr. Estrallado said they are still waiting for the surveying
firms, such as AGB Philippines, to come up with a formula that
will determine the viewership nationwide.

The company claimed they continue to lead in Cebu, Dagupan, and
Davao, against GMA 7, which still has to beef-up its operations
and signal in the provinces.

As a result of its lower ratings, net income of ABS-CBN
continued to decline, posting a third consecutive drop in the
third quarter to P344 million from the previous Php734 million,
down by 53 percent.

LAFAYETTE MINING: Civic Groups Refute Claim
-------------------------------------------
Non-government groups disputed the claim of the Environment
Management Bureau of the Department of Energy and Regulatory
Resources (DENR-EMB) and Lafayette Mining (Philippines) that the
firm uses state-of-the-art mining techniques, The Philippine
Daily Inquirer relates.

An inquiry commissioned by the civic groups revealed that in
only four months of operation, the Australia-based mining firm
has already spilled wastes that resulted in fish kills.

The site of the waste spills is only 50 meters away from the
creeks, rivers and sea off Barangay Binosawan, Rapu Rapu making
the village vulnerable, said Dr. Emelina Regis, director of the
Institute for Environmental Conservation and Research (Inecar)
of the Ateneo de Naga University.

But Lafayette country manager Rod Watt stressed the spill was
just a minor incident and their technical men have already
undertaken measures to correct its negative effects and prevent
the occurrence of the same incident.

He said the DENR had conducted an investigation and Lafayette
would abide by its findings and recommendations.

Meanwhile, Rapu Rapu councilor Eric dela Paz said two rivers in
Pagcolbon were found biologically dead.

The fact-finding team was composed of representatives of the
Social Action Center of Legazpi, Tanggol Kalikasan, Ugnayan ng
mga Mamamayan Laban sa Pagmimina at Konbersyon Agraryo, Defend
Patrimony, Rural Missionaries of the Philippines and Inecar.

MANILA ELECTRIC: More Clients to Enjoy Lower Rates
--------------------------------------------------
More firms can now avail of Manila Electric Co.'s (Meralco)
discounted power scheme with the recent relaxation of the
eligibility requirement, BusinessWorld reports.

Last week, the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) issued an
order reducing the threshold level for the High Load Factor
(HLF) Rider scheme to one megawatt from the initial five
megawatts.

This means that Meralco industrial customers with peak demand of
one megawatt, depending on their load factors, can enjoy
discounts of as much as Php1.10 per kilowatt-hour (kWh).

Based on Meralco documents, the firm had 68 industrial service
customers with billing demands of at least one megawatt and load
factors of at least 70% as of June 2005.

Only 21 were registered with five megawatts of peak demand. Of
these, only 10 were able to register a load factor of at least
70 percent.

The order, signed on November 3, is now in effect and comes as
power rates increase with the implementation of the new value-
added tax law.

MANILA ELECTRIC: Government Keen on Stake Sale
----------------------------------------------
The national government is planning to dispose of its interest
in Manila Electric Co. possibly before the year ends, according
to BusinessWorld.

Finance Secretary Margarito Teves confirmed the asset sale would
probably be conducted by the end of 2005.

However, the government has not set target proceeds from the
planned sale just yet. It has been considering selling the
stakes as part of plans to raise revenues to improve the
country's fiscal position.

Aside from Meralco, the government is also keen on divesting its
stake in San Miguel Corporation and two of three state-run
television networks namely Radio Philippines Network (RPN) and
Intercontinental Broadcasting Corp. (IBC).

The proceeds from the divestments are expected to help narrow
the widening state budget deficit.

The government aims to wipe out the budget shortfall by 2010
through a combination of revenue and expenditure reforms.


NATIONAL POWER: S&P Raises Concern on Privatization
---------------------------------------------------
Representatives of rating agency Standard & Poor's (S&P) have
sought dialogue with energy policymakers regarding the delayed
privatization of National Power Corporation (Napocor) and the
overall restructuring of the power industry, The Manila Bulletin
reports.

The issues raised with the Department of Energy (DoE) are
centered on the medium-term outlook on demand and supply of
electricity in the country; policy and outlook on reserve
capacity; and the fuel mix in electricity generation.

The most critical concerns reportedly raised by S&P is on the
continued delay in the privatization of the NPC assets; and the
recent move of the Senate calling for new round of
renegotiations of contracts with the independent power
producers, done under the pretext of pursuing amendments to the
Electric Power Industry Reform Act.

The rating agency also pressed for updates on near-term targets
for the industry's restructuring, primarily on the scheduled
operation of the Wholesale Electricity Spot Market next year. It
would be noted that even as the spot market's commercial
operation is just barely three months shy from January 2006
target, the Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC) has opened
debates on what appropriate pricing scheme shall be adopted on
volumes traded via the WESM.

Moving to ERC, the S&P inquired on tariff regulation and
revisions as being worked upon by the Commission.

In particular, the rating agency raised concerns on further
revisions in tariff-setting; primarily those on proposed shift
to performance-based rate setting (PBR) and the time-of-use
(TOU) pricing modes.

CITIRAYA INDUSTRIES: Former Employee Jailed for Corruption
----------------------------------------------------------
A former employee of electronic waste recycler Citiraya
Industries Limited was sentenced to eight months in prison for
corruption, Channel NewsAsia reports.

Mr. Ong Cheng Ho, who was a transport supervisor of the Company,
pled guilty last week to accepting SGD86,000 in bribes from
former assistant general manager Ng Teck Boon, for the
misappropriation of chips that were meant for recycling.

Mr. Ong's lawyer argued that his client's involvement in the
scheme was only to instruct drivers collecting electronic wate
from clients to hurry back to the Company, so that there would
be enouh time to replace the rejected microchips with dummy
chips. He further argued that Mr. Ong borrowed SGD80,000 from
the SGD86,000 payment he accepted from Mr. Ng; and yet the loan
was never repaid.

Mr. Ong is the latest to plead guilty in the Citiraya case,
along with six former employees who have already been fined and
imprisoned for their involvement in the corruption case.

THAI WAH: Explains Increase in Profit
-------------------------------------
Thai Wah Public Company Limited (TWC) and Thai Wah Group
Planner Company Limited as the Plan Administrator issued to the
Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET) an explanation for the increase
in profit of THB812 million for the nine-month period ended
September 30, 2005 as compared to the same period of 2004.

(1) In February 2005, the Company sold some non-core assets
which are listed in the business rehabilitation plan, amended
and approved by the Central Bankruptcy Court on December 27,
2004.  

The assets comprise of ordinary shares in two subsidiary
companies and the sale of these assets increased the gain on
sale of investment by THB524 million.

(2) Decrease in foreign exchange losses of THB108 million
resulting from a THB153 million loss in the translation of USD
loans as compared to a loss of THB261 million in the same period
in 2004.

(3) A THB155 million increase in "gain on debt restructuring".

The gain in 2005 amounted to THB238 million as compared to THB84
million in 2004. The gain on debt restructuring in question is
due to the company's compliance with the condition of Incentive
Debt under the amended and restated debt restructuring
agreement, which forms part of the amended business
rehabilitation plan accepted by the Central Bankruptcy Court on
June 30, 2003.

(4) Consolidated gross profit of agricultural product business
decreased by THB23 million as compared to the same period in the
previous year and this is attributed to the following major
reasons:

(4.1) A decrease in TWC's (company only) gross profit of tapioca
flour amounted to THB47 million due to the following reasons:

(a) The effect from a 20 percent decrease in sales volume
decreased gross profit by THB60 million.

(b) Although a 33 per increase in the average selling price was
offset by a 43 percent increase in the unit cost of sale as
compared to the same period last year, gross profit increased by
THB13 million.

(4.2) The gross profit of an overseas subsidiary company
producing tapioca flour and other products increased by
THB24 million due to the following reasons:

(a) The gross profit of tapioca flour product increased by
THB11 million due to an average selling price increased by 40
percent while the unit cost of sale increased by 31 percent.

(b) The gross profit of glucose product increased by THB7
million due to an average selling price increased by 37 percent
while the unit cost of sale increased by 26 percent.

(c) The gross profit of candy product increased by THB5 million
due to the increase in sales volume increased by 206 percent.

(5) A THB48 million reduction in gross profit of hotel and
office rental business attributed to the subsidiary company
which was sold in February 2005 (please see explanation no.1).

(6) A THB20 million decrease in a reversal of allowance for loss
on impairment of investment due to the settlement of         
convertible loan stock and interest receivable in the same
period of year 2004 which did not reoccur in the period under
review.

(7) A THB27 million increase in other income due mainly to an
unrealized gain from the issuance of ordinary shares to           
a contingent debt creditor in the year 2004 which was
subsequently recognized as income in the year 2005.

Additionally, the recognition of a gain was made by a subsidiary
company arising from recording a plot of land at fair market
value.

(8) Selling and administrative expenses decreased by THB49
million over the same period last year due mainly to a decrease
in sale transportation expense (as a result of lower sales
volume), a decrease in financial advisory expense of a parent
company and also the exclusion of selling and administrative
expenses of two subsidiary companies which were sold in February
2005 (please see explanation no.1).

(9) A THB75 million reduction in interest expenses attributed to
the subsidiary company which was sold in February 2005 (please
see explanation no. 1).

(10) A THB33 million increase in share of gain to minority
interests.  Share of gain to minority interests in 2005 was
THB21 million as compared to a share of loss to minority
interests of THB11 million in 2004.

The company hopes that the above information would be beneficial
to all investors.

Very truly yours,
Mr. Kuan Chiet

TONGKAH HARBOUR: Proposes to Trade in AIM
-----------------------------------------
Pursuant to the Board of Directors' Meeting held on November 11,
2005, Tongkah Harbour Public Company Limited (THL) informed the
Stock Exchange of Thailand (SET), Shareholders and Investors
regarding the meetings' resolutions:

(1) The Board of directors (BoD) approved the audited account
for the third quarter ending September 30, 2005, which was
reviewed and recommended by Audit Committee.

(2) THL's BoD has agreed to the Management's proposal that, in
order to alleviate the uncertainty concerning the listing status
of THL shares on the SET, the Shareholders of THL be given the
alternative to trade THL shares through the introduction of THL
shares to the Alternative Investment Market (AIM), which is a
multi-billion pound sterling capital market of the London Stock
Exchange.

(3) The proposed introduction to trade on the AIM is subject to
tabling of the matters mentioned below to the BOD for its
consideration and recommendation to the Shareholders for
approval at an EGM:

(a) The costs and fees.
    
(b) Legal and nominated financial advisors (Nomad) opinion.
    
(c) The Admission Document and relevant filings.

(d) Timetable of the listing procedures.

(4) It is acknowledged that:

(1) The report by Management that the introduction to trade
THL shares on AIM is not envisaged to be a difficult exercise
given that:

(a) The Company has a 99-year history directed by an experienced
team of competent directors and advisors,

(i) Committed team of experienced managers,

(ii) A major gold mining project now in full progress toward
production,

(iii) A widespread share holding of more than 4,000 shareholders
many of whom are international institutions, investment funds
and companies, and  

(iv) No new capital share issue for funds is currently involved
and, therefore, no necessity of underwriters nor prospectus
except an Admission Document.

(2) There will be requirements for a sponsoring broker, legal
advisors and (Nomad).

(3) Concerning progress of the gold project:

(i) All infrastructures and earth works are mostly completed,  

(ii) Construction of buildings is in progress,  

(iii) Four of the nine leaching tanks are completed,

(iv) The ball mill was shipped on 11 November 2005 from
Freemantle, Western Australia,

(v) The crusher is ready for shipment from Finland on 15
November 2005, and,

(vi) And all other equipment and machinery are scheduled to be
on site before the end of the year.

All mining machinery and equipment are already on site. Gold
production will begin during the first quarter of 2006. Also, a
second mill (ball mill) with all attachments has been acquired
for fabrication for the planned second stage of production
involving the primary ore processing. All the above have been
established within the allocated budget.

(4) THL's management and engineering advisors now consider that
it is technically viable to mine the offshore tin deposit of
some 50,000 tons of tin (at 30 to 70 meters depth) about 30
kilometers off the coast of Takuapa in Southern Thailand. Mining
plans have been filed by Sea Minerals Limited (SML) in which the
Company holds 83.6 percent of the total shares. Negotiations are
ongoing to reduce current royalty rates of over 20 percent
(ironically due to substantial tin price increases) to
internationally competitive rates (for example: Indonesia-3.0
percent, Australia-2.5 percent). Upon a competitive rate being
finalized, SML will take steps to be listed on the AIM.

(5) The corporate management plans to list Tungkam Ltd
(TKL) on AIM. The Company holds an effective 98 percent share
holding n TKL.

Pleased be informed accordingly.

Yours faithfully,
Mr. Ronald Ng Wai Choi
Managing Director
