ALLSTATE EXPLORATIONS: Shareholders Question AU$22-Mln Hike
-----------------------------------------------------------
Allstate Explorations' investors are confused over an apparent
blowout in Macquarie Bank's controversial loan to the gold
miner, The Australian relates.

Allstate Chairman Rod Elvish told last week's annual
shareholders meeting that the debt was AU$48 million.

But in the version of his speech submitted to the Australian
Stock Exchange (ASX) and posted on the Allstate web site this
week he reveals interest on top of the debt of AU$22 million.

The announcement was removed from the ASX web site after two
days and replaced with a version, which omitted the reference to
interest.

The confusion has prompted shareholders to write to Australian
Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) chairman Jeff Lucy
seeking an investigation into the affair.

If correct, the interest payments would further burden long-
suffering shareholders who want to see Allstate move out of
administration and back on to the share market.

The 2002 Allstate accounts say that the unsecured debt to
Macquarie Bank was non-interest-bearing with no fixed term of
payment.

It is the first time that shareholders have been told the debt
accrued interest.

EMPEROR MINES: Raises AU$8.8 Mln by Placement
---------------------------------------------
Emperor Mines Limited has on Monday announced the placement of
23.2 million shares at 38 cents per share to raise AU$8.816
million before costs (Placement).

Austock Corporate Finance Limited has arranged this placing for
Emperor, which has been issued to investors exempted from
disclosure under section 708(8) of the Corporation Act 2001
(Cth).

The Board of Emperor previously announced an intention to
undertake a US$15 million raising in February 2006, however it
light of recent strong demand for shares the company has elected
to undertake this Placement under the 15% limit imposed by the
ASX Listing Rules for companies seeking to raise capital without
having to obtain shareholder approval. Accordingly, the US$15
million raising in February will be scaled back by the net
amount raised from this Placement.

As previously announced, the Company has a number of key capital
programs at Vatukoula including:

- Refurbishment of the Phillip Shaft to increase capacity,
including the installation of a new winder, improved shaft
infrastructure and the installation of a new water pumping
system; and

- Feasibility studies and test work to construct a Fluidized Bed
Roaster, which will assist in processing ore with higher sulphur
levels and reducing emissions.

The raising of part of these funds now will allow the benefits
from these programmes to be realized sooner.

JAMES HARDIE: Still Under ASIC's Watchful Eyes
----------------------------------------------
The Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) is
keeping its eyes fixed on James Hardie Industries, according to
The West Australian.

The corporate regulator has vowed to keep the inquiry on James
Hardie a top priority despite the firm striking an asbestos
compensation agreement with the New South Wales (NSW)
Government.

ASIC Chairman Jeff Lucy told WestBusiness that its James Hardie
probe remained at the head of the regulator's list of
investigations, alongside its probe of failed printer Offset
Alpine, insurer HIH and the Perth-based gold, tantalum and
hedging company Sons of Gwalia.

The regulator has been investigating James Hardie over the past
year for potential criminal and Corporations Act civil penalty
offences.

But James Hardie had reportedly been pushing for its directors
and executives to be provided with immunity from civil
prosecution in the haggling over the terms of the asbestos
compensation agreement finalized last week.

In unveiling the final deal, the NSW Government said James
Hardie directors and executives would be indemnified from civil
actions for compensation by asbestos victims but ASIC could
still launch civil or criminal prosecutions against James
Hardie's directors and executives.

Mr. Lucy said he had been monitoring the negotiations and
potential legislation to ensure that any civil immunity only
covered potential compensation orders under its civil penalty
prosecution powers.

ASIC had wanted to ensure the agreement did not prevent civil
penalties prosecutions that could result in offenders being hit
with fines or banning orders.

MULTIPLEX: Snags Contract to Build Tower in Dubai
-------------------------------------------------
Multiplex Group announced that its construction division in the
United Arab Emirate has been awarded a Dhs1 billion
(approximately AU$389 million) contract for the design and
construction of an 86-storey office, residential and retail
complex in Dubai.

The Union Properties project, located in the heart of the Dubai
International Finance Centre, incorporates 25 levels of office
space, 520 apartments and penthouses over 50 levels with other
levels being occupied by parking, retail, services and
landscaped podium.

Foster and Partners of London, England, produced the
architectural concept for the project, while Multiplex has
engaged architects Woods Bagot and Structural Engineers
Bruechle, Gilchrist and Evans to complete design development.

The project, to be known as the Index, will be delivered on a
Guaranteed Maximum Price contract, which is the result of a two-
stage negotiation process with Union Properties, for whom
Multiplex has already successfully completed The Tower and
Creekside Apartments projects.

Union Properties have engaged edara-APP, a Joint Venture between
edara, a Dubai-based project management group, and APP, a well-
known Australian project management company, as their Project
Managers during both the design and construction phases.

Construction is to commence this month, under a three-year
contract.

Multiplex Group's construction division operates in the United
Arab Emirates under the trading name, Nasa Multiplex.

Nasa Multiplex is one of the major building operators present in
the United Arab Emirates, with work in hand Monday including 15
residential apartment towers for phases one, two and three of
the Burj Residences project, as well as a 6 tower residential
project on Dubai Marina.

Multiples Group stapled securities trade on the Australian Stock
Exchange under the symbol "MXG".

QANTAS AIRWAYS: New Jetstar Division Poised for Flight
------------------------------------------------------
The board of Qantas Airways is expected to endorse the launch of
Jetstar International on Wednesday, according to the Sydney
Morning Herald.

The new Jetstar division is expected to start flying by the end
of 2006 to destinations such as Seoul, Taipei, Ho Chi Minh City
and several leisure spots in South-East Asia. Routes to Europe
and U.S. could come later.

The new airline will form a major part in Qantas's five-year
plan to slash AU$3 billion from its cost base by mid-2007.

It is understood Qantas wants to run its low-cost offshoot with
a cost base 40 percent lower than its mainline operations. It
will operate from all mainland state capitals.

Qantas is deliberating whether to buy 300-seat Boeing 787s or
Airbus 350s for the low-cost offshoot. It is expected the other
tranche of the order, ultra long-range Boeing 777-200LRs or
Airbus A340-500s, will go to Qantas's mainline operations.

QANTAS AIRWAYS: To Reduce Agent Base Commissions
------------------------------------------------
Qantas Airways said that it would change travel agent base
commissions for tickets sold in Australia from April 1, 2006.

Qantas Head of Sales and Marketing Rob Gurney said that under
the new base commission structure:

- Australian domestic, trans-Tasman and New Zealand domestic
base commissions, currently one percent, would be discontinued;
and

- International base commissions would be reduced from seven
percent to five percent.

Mr. Gurney said Qantas was operating in an extremely challenging
environment with fierce competition domestically and
internationally, as well as continuing high fuel costs.

"The reduction in commissions is in line with global trends and
with Qantas' stated aim to reduce distribution costs.

"In some overseas markets, airlines have removed commissions
entirely and travel agents have adjusted to new income models.

"Base commissions are only part of the income mix that travel
agents receive from airlines and agents are increasingly moving
to a new remuneration models, including the collection of
service fees where the customer pays the travel agent for the
expert service they receive."

Travel agents are a key part of Qantas' distribution mix and
Qantas will continue to consult closely with the Australian
Federation of Travel Agents and to support the travel industry
network, Mr., Gurney said.

PERTAMINA: Government Ensures Adequate Gas Supply
-------------------------------------------------
Indonesia's House of Representatives (DPR) secured a new
contract in order to ensure that state oil and gas firm PT
Pertamina provides enough gas to state fertilizer firms, Asia
Pulse reports.

House Commission VI member Azwir Dainy Tara said that the
government has bound Pertamina to a contract, which it must
honor, in order to resolve the Company's failure to provide
adequate gas supply to state firms.

Pertamina deputy president Mustika Saleh had said earlier that
The Company could not supply gas to state fertilizer firm PT
Pupuk Kujang. He added, however, that it would renew its gas
supply contract with Pupuk Kujang, so that it would not cease
operations.

At present, Pertamina has met only 69% of the total gas demand
of state fertilizer firms such as PT Pupuk Kujang, PT Pupuk
Kalimantan Timur, PT Pusri. Mr. Tara said that priority should
go to consumers, with a certain impact level  due to the lack of
gas supply.

PERTAMINA: To Close Cepu Deal with ExxonMobil This Month
--------------------------------------------------------
State oil and gas firm PT Pertamina will close a joint-operation
contract with its U.S.-based partner, ExxnMobil Corp., on the
operation of an oil-rich block located in Cepu province, reports
Dow Jones.

The Company's Chief Executive Officer Widya Purnama said that he
expected a deal with ExxonMobil on the joint operation of the
Cepu block, on instructions from state President Susilo Bambang
Yudhoyono.

ExxonMobil spokeswoman Deva Rachman said that both firms are now
finalizing the joint operation agreement with Pertamina.

The joint operation agreement is a positive solution to the
deadlocked negotiations between both firms, with ExxonMobil
insisting it had the right to develop the oil and gas block,
while Pertamina offered to operate the block for the first five
years after its development.

President Yudhoyono had given both firms until the end of the
year to resolve the dispute, otherwise the Cepu block would be
managed by the government.

KONICA MINOLTA: Swings to JPY3.48 Bln Net Loss
----------------------------------------------
Konica Minolta Holdings Inc. incurs a net loss of JPY3.48
billion in the first half to September, versus a net profit
JPY8.2 billion a year earlier, as it continued spending heavily
on restructuring its business, AFX News reports.

The expected loss will largely reflect JPY90 billion in charges
the firm plans to allocate for restructuring as it sharply
reduces its exposure to the photo-imaging business.

The company aims to slash its current payroll of 33,000
employees by 10 percent, while streamlining its production
facilities and sales network. It did not elaborate further on
these moves.

In the photo-imaging division, Konica cut its operating loss to
JPY700 million, sharply lower than the loss of JPY4 billion
incurred the year earlier.

MITSUBISHI FUSO: To Relocate Head Office
----------------------------------------
Mitsubishi Fuso Truck and Bus Corporation (MFTBC) announced the
location of its new headquarters. The company will relocate its
head office to the "Shin-Kawasaki Mitsui Building" in Shin-
Kawasaki by December 2006. The details of the new location
follow Monday's general announcement that the company planned to
move its head office from the current "Shinagawa Mitsubishi
Building" to a new location in Shin-Kawasaki.

MFTBC's current departments in the metropolitan area include
headquarters operations in Shinagawa and production/R&D
functions at the Kawasaki Plant. The top management,
domestic/international sales and service offices, and
administrative offices are currently located in the Shinagawa
headquarters. Approximately 500 employees working in the head
office will be transferred to Shin-Kawasaki with this
relocation. The company is also considering relocation of some
Kawasaki Plant staff there.

Advantages of relocating the head office to the new location
close to Kawasaki Plant include:  

-  Improved communication and connection between business
departments.

-  Reduction of rental cost (300 million yen/year).

The new office will be located in the West Tower of "Shin-
Kawasaki Mitsui Building" (Address: 890-12 Kashimada, Saiwai-ku,
Kawasaki-shi). MFTBC plans to rent seven floors of the 31-story
building: the 26th through the 31st floor and also the 17th
floor. The company will decide on a specific plan for
departments to be relocated by spring next year, will conduct
interior finish work, and will complete relocation in December
2006.

MFTBC moved from Tamachi to its current location at the
"Shinagawa Mitsubishi Building" in May 2003.

---------------------------------
KDDI Corporation has filed for the bankruptcy of Nippon Iridium
Corp.'s subsidiary in Bermuda with total liabilities worth

station in Nagano Prefecture.

subsidiary.

Nippon Iridium ceased operations in March 2000 following the
bankruptcy of Iridium of the United States, which had been

PIONEER CORPORATION: Unveils 60th Semiannual Business Report
------------------------------------------------------------
In the first half of the 60th accounting period, ended September
30, 2005, consolidated operating revenue of Pioneer Corporation
was JPY349,898 million, up 1.4% over the previous year.

However, net loss of JPY12,261 million was posted for the
period, compared to net income of JPY4,809 million in the
corresponding period of the previous year. This loss was
principally caused by lower market prices for our main products
due to more severe competition, resulting in a decrease of gross
profit margins.

Reflecting the impact of continued severe business conditions,
the company have set interim dividend payments at JPY7.5 per
share of common stock, a decrease of JPY5.0 from that for the
corresponding period last year.

The business environment remains severe, characterized by
uncertain economic conditions, particularly as the rising prices
of crude oil and other raw materials may exert negative impact
on the economies of Japan and the U.S., in which consumer
spending had been steady.

Also, price competition is increasingly tough in markets for our
key products.

Despite these difficult conditions, the company is committed to
becoming profitable again by reviewing every aspect of our major
business fields, reinvesting our resources in advanced, high-
quality, value added products that identify the core value of
our Company, and enhancing our brand equity.

In the plasma display business, the company has been reinforcing
our production capacity, as the market rapidly expands. Incoming
orders, however, did not reach the levels the company had
planned for in the OEM (original equipment manufacturing) plasma
display business, so the company decided to adjust total
production output until demand recovers.

As the company keeps cutting costs extensively, it will continue
to develop and launch unique products of superior innovation,
performance and function. The company is making efforts to
enhance the value and strength of the Pioneer brand and to
expand plasma display sales.

In the DVD business, the market is rapidly expanding, especially
in DVD recorders and DVD drives for personal computers (PCs),
while product prices are falling sharply. To overcome the
competition, the company must introduce more advanced products
as early as possible, in addition to carrying out more cost
cutting in production in China. The company is aggressively
reviewing our development and design process, aiming to enhance
speed and efficiency of development, and to precede our
competitors in supplying markets with products that customers
welcome.

In the car electronics business, the company is determined to
maintain a leading position in the consumer market by
reinforcing our car audio operations in the fast-growing markets
of China, Central and South America and Russia. Developing
products that differentiate us from our industry competitors
will help extend the value of our brand. Our car navigation
operations are renowned in Japan, where our sales efforts are as
aggressive as ever. The company is making a similarly bold push
to fortify and extend our operations for this business in Europe
and North America. In our business with automobile
manufacturers, the company is capitalizing on its product
planning expertise in the consumer market, and proposes
innovative products to open up new business opportunities and
increase sales.

Along with our ongoing efforts to improve management efficiency,
the company is advancing discussion on a restructuring that may
include renewal of the Pioneer group business structure, as well
as consequent consolidation of plants and offices and review of
staffing. These measures, plus inventory reduction through
better supply chain management, will help us return to
profitability and improve cash flows.

We greatly appreciate the support that you have always given us.
The company is doing everything in our power to overcome the
present difficulties and to improve shareholder value.

SHOWA AIRCRAFT: R&I Affirms BBB- Rating
---------------------------------------
Rating and Investment Information, Inc. (R&I) has affirmed the
BBB- rating of Showa Aircraft Industry Co. Limited. The rating
agency has placed a negative outlook.

RATIONALE:

Showa Aircraft Industry Co., Ltd., is a manufacturer of
transport equipment affiliated with Mitsui Engineering &
Shipbuilding Co., Ltd. The company is also developing a real
estate leasing business that includes commercial facilities and
warehouses in Akishima, Tokyo. The operating deficit in the
manufacturing division has persisted as sales keep declining due
to the withdrawal from the truck cabin fabrication business and
the slump in the market for special purpose vehicles.

The company secures a certain level of earnings from real estate
leasing using the vast amount of land it owns on the north side
of JR Akishima Station, but earning potential and capacity to
generate cash flow are weak on the company-wide basis. The
reorganization of the manufacturing division and
commercialization of idle land are challenges, but R&I continues
to give a positive evaluation to the fact that the massive value
of the company's real estate provides scope both in terms of
time and funds, and it has affirmed the Issuer Rating of BBB-.

Nevertheless, there are plans of a large-scale shopping center
opening nearby which could have a negative impact on the area of
Showa's customer drawing power and future development plans.
Furthermore, the manufacturing division of Showa Aircraft is
lagging in turning itself profitable.

CITIBANK KOREA: Striking Workers Fail to Achieve Goal
-----------------------------------------------------
The unionized workers of Citibank Korea failed to reach a
settlement with the bank's management as it ended its two-day
strike, The Korea Times reports.

The union and Citibank's management have held 20 rounds of talks
over the past three months, but until now both parties have not
reached a compromise. The union members demanded equal treatment
among KorAm employees and Citibank employees.

Citibank Korea was launched in November last year in a merger
between the local banking unit of U.S.-based financial giant
Citigroup and KorAm, then the country's seventh-largest lender.

Citibank Korea CEO Ha Yung-ku earlier said the management is
ready to negotiate, but that labor-management relations are
deemed too rigid for a foreign-controlled bank.

As a result of the labor dispute between the two parties,
Citibank has delayed a plan to merge the banking system of
Citibank and KorAm, causing concern and inconvenience to
customers.

compensate creditors for Samsung Motors' insolvency in late
1990s.

Rumors have it that some Renault officials want to ditch Renault
Samsung Motors, its Korean operation due to poor sales and legal
troubles between Samsung and its creditors.  Samsung Card, the
group's money-lending unit, holds a 19.9 percent stake in
Renault Samsung as the second-largest shareholder.

Equity funds are regarded as possible candidates, if speculation
is successful.

In a recent TCR-Asia Pacific report it was stated that Samsung
Group has been fighting a battle over the automakers' unpaid
debt worth about KRW4.7 trillion.  In an agreement with the
automakers' creditors, Mr. Lee guaranteed his shares in Samsung
Life Insurance Co. as debt payment for Samsung Motor. During
that time, Samsung Life's share was valued at KRW700,000 on the
assumption that it would be listed.

But the Financial Supervisory Commission did not allow Samsung
Life' shares to be listed on the stock market due to the
insurer's reluctance to distribute dividends to policyholders
after the planned listing. The group even failed to pay
interest.

MAYNILAD WATER: Advocacy Group Wants Rehab Blocked
--------------------------------------------------
A Commission on Audit (CoA) report regarding Maynilad Water
Services Inc.'s rehabilitation plan will be submitted to the
Supreme Court to back a non-government group's move to stop the
firm's ongoing rehabilitation, BusinessWorld reports.

The Freedom from Debt Coalition said CoA's report, which found
Maynilad's rehabilitation grossly disadvantageous to the
government, supports the case earlier filed by the coalition
before the Supreme Court seeking to junk the water firm's
rehabilitation.

In an Oct. 25 report, the state auditor found that
rehabilitation plan of Maynilad is not beneficial to the state-
owned Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System (MWSS).

In a position paper submitted to the MWSS, CoA said the
regulator is not authorized by its charter to provide financial
assistance to Maynilad, as called for in the rehabilitation
plan's debt and capital restructuring agreement.

The revised rehabilitation plan, approved by a Quezon City court
last April, paves the way for the exit of Lopez-owned Benpres
Holdings Corp. from the financially troubled water distributor.

NATIONAL POWER: PSALM Mulls US$500-Mln Loan in 2006
---------------------------------------------------
The Power Sector Assets and Liabilities Management Corp. (PSALM)
is considering borrowing at least US$500 million next year to
fund huge debt payments of National Power Corporation (Napocor),
reports The Manila Times.

PSALM, the agency handling the sale of Napocor assets, borrowed
about US$600 million this year in the local and foreign markets
to fund capital expenditures and pay maturing debt of the state-
owned power firm.

Napocor, the single biggest strain on the government's finances,
wants to sell dozens of power plants and privatize the state-
controlled power grid to raise about US$5 billion to pay its
debts, but has made little progress.

The Philippine government, Asia's most active issuer of
sovereign bonds after Japan, this year assumed about Php200
billion (US$36.9 million) of Napocor's total debt of almost
Php600 billion to try to speed up the sale of its assets to
private investors.

Napocor is projected to break even from its operations this year
after a net loss of Php29.9 billion in 2004.

NATIONAL POWER: YNN Assures US$222-Mln Down Payment
---------------------------------------------------
The winning consortium for National Power Corporation's
(Napocor) Masinloc power facility said t would comply with the
conditions and deadline set by the Power Sector Assets and
Liabilities Management Corp., according to The Manila Standard.

PSALM has asked YNN to pay the upfront fee of US$222 million for
Napocor's 600-megawatt Masinloc coal-fired power plant not later
than March 31, 2006.

Under an asset purchase agreement, PSALM must set YNN's deadline
for the remittance of the upfront payment and closing
deliverables after the government agency completes all
conditions to the sale, including consent of creditors like the
World Bank, Asian Development Bank and the Japan Bank for
International Cooperation.

PSALM complied with all conditions on Nov. 25.

YNN was also asked to execute an undertaking stipulating that
the consortium would deliver in mid-January 2006 an amended
performance bond effective until August 2006.

If YNN fails to deliver the amended bond, PSALM can forfeit the
original bond.


* Moody's Says 2006 Revenue Goals 'Not Realistic'
-------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service claimed the government's revenue
projections for 2006 are "not realistic", Malaya reports.

The rating agency, which is set to visit the Philippines on Dec.
7, has asked the government to review its revenue assumptions
for next year given the economy's sluggish third-quarter growth.

For 2006, the government targets to raise Php968.6 billion in
revenues representing 16 percent of gross domestic product. The
2006 program is 24 percent higher than the Php783.2 billion
target this year.

The government has scaled down its growth target for 2006 to 5.7
percent from 6.3 to 7.3 percent to take into account the impact
of high oil prices and the E-VAT.

For next year, Moody's said the government must reduce its
dependence on external commercial financing to lessen its
vulnerability to external pressures.

Moody's also expressed concern that the government is not doing
enough to fast track the sale of National Power Corporation's
(Napocor) assets, which is weighing heavily on the consolidated
public sector debt.

Moody's has not given an indication of the direction of its
analysis for the country's rating following the implementation
of the expanded VAT.

In July, the New York-based rating agency lowered the outlook on
the country's rating to negative from stable following the
political uncertainty generated by the election-fraud
accusations against President Arroyo.

The rating firm, however, kept its `B1' rating, which is four
levels below investment grade.

Moody's is set to assign a new rating for the country by
February next year.
