JAMES HARDIE: Gregory Clark Steps Down From Board
-------------------------------------------------
Gregory Clark has resigned from the Supervisory and Joint Boards
of James Hardie Industries NV, Aggregate Research reports,
citing the Company's Chairman of the Board, Meredith Hellicar.

Mr. Clark joined the Board in July 2002.  He has advised the
Board that he has other interests he wants to pursue.

Ms. Hellicar stated that, "[w]ith the signing of the Final
Funding Agreement last December and progress in the on-going
work to resolve issues associated with our voluntary asbestos
funding proposal, [Mr. Clark] feels that now is an appropriate
time to depart."

In announcing Mr Clark's resignation, Ms. Hellicar confirmed
that the Board is well advanced in its search for new directors
who have relevant business, financial and board experience in
both the United States and Europe, and the personal qualities
and values important for contributing to the balanced
composition of the Board.

                       About James Hardie  

James Hardie Industries Limited -- http://www.jameshardie.com/-
- manufactures, markets and distributes fiber cement and gypsum
products, fiberglass reinforced plastic and PVC products,
sanitary ware and bathroom products, insulating materials and
fillers, strippers and adhesives.  After beginning Australian
operations in 1888, it reincorporated into a Netherlands-based
company in 2001 to focus on its American growth businesses.  
Nearly 80% of its sales are in North America.  The Company's
troubles began with its "under-funded" allocation for asbestos
claims, which were brought in by people who suffer or may have
diseases caused by exposure to the asbestos-related products
produced by James Hardie.  In 2001, James Hardie set up an
independent entity, Medical Research and Compensation
Foundation, to handle asbestos claims.  The Foundation has
warned that it could run out of money within five years.  The
Asbestos Diseases Foundation of Australia and workers unions
called for all the Company's asbestos profits to be immediately
placed in the fund.  James Hardie was later accused of topping
up the dwindling asbestos fund it established.  By 2004, James
Hardie's former asbestos manufacturing subsidiaries, Amaca and
Amaba, are two of around 150 defendants in asbestos litigation,
and based on the Foundation's own figures, they account for
US$1,000,000,000 of the predicted US$6,000,000,000 future
liabilities in Australia.  Although James Hardie stopped making
asbestos products in 1987, the average 35-year latency of
mesothelioma, an asbestos-related disease, means asbestos
compensation funds will be needed until mid-century.  In a 2005
report by a Company-hired actuary from KPMG, it was predicted
that 4,915 Australians would contract mesothelioma from exposure
to Hardie products in the coming decades.  When less serious
forms of asbestos-related disease are included, James Hardie
should expect to compensate 8,725 victims.

NATIONAL AUSTRALIA: Half-Year Profit Drops 27.7%
------------------------------------------------
National Australia Bank reported a net profit of AU$1.99 billion
for the six months ended March 31, 2006.  The current figure is
a 27.7% fall from the AU$2.76 billion net profit the bank posted
for the same period in 2005.

NAB's cash profit, which excludes one-off items and adjustments,
rose 11.4% to AU$1.84 billion on growth in business borrowings.
NAB said that last year's results benefited from a gain of
AU$1.1 billion from the sale of its National Irish Bank and
Northern Bank to Denmark's Danske Bank.

NAB plans to increase business lending by an additional AU$12
billion, or 14% of its total loans to companies in Australia, as
miners and manufacturers spend more on expansion, Bloomberg News
relates.

According to Real Time Traders News, NAB's AU$1.84 billion cash
earnings in the first half was almost the same as the AU$1.85
billion it recorded for the same period two years ago before its
profits were hit by the foreign exchange trading scandal in
early 2004.  Net interest margin, a measure of profitability,
increased in the first six months to 2.31% from 2.12% for the
same period last year.  The bank attributed this to accounting
changes and reduction in low margin assets in several
businesses.

According to NAB Chief Executive Officer John Stewart, the
biggest threat to the bank's growth was from within the business
rather than from outside.  Pointing to the recent interest rate
hike, he said that while the bank remained comfortable with the
global economic outlook, it was concerned about the risks to
growth and inflation in its core business regions Australia, New
Zealand and the United Kingdom.

Mr. Stewart also noted that NAB was progressing in its work to
fulfill the list of 81 requirements set by the financial
regulator related to the foreign exchange issue.  He said that
only 11 requirements remained and were expected to be completed
by the end of 2006.

In addition, RTT News says, NAB is halfway through the 4,700 job
cuts it has charted out for its global operations.  NAB had
indicated that there have been 1,280 redundancies in Australia
until the end of March 2006 and a further 968 would be cut,
during the remainder of the restructuring program, over the next
12 months.

National Australia Bank Limited -- http://wwww.national.com.au/  
-- is an international banking group, which operates in
Australia, New Zealand, Europe, Asia, and the United States.  
The Group offers banking services; credit and access card
facilities; leasing, housing and general finance; international
and investment banking; wealth and funds management; life
insurance; and custodian, trustee and nominee services.

In January 2004, NAB announced that it had identified AU$326
million in losses relating to unauthorized trading in foreign
currency options.  In the investigation of those losses, NAB
found out that there were significant issues in relation to risk
systems, procedures and organizational culture.

NAB is undertaking a three-year revival program after the
foreign exchange trading scandal, which cost it several profit
downgrades in 2005 that hammered its share price.  Part of its
revival scheme is to cut costs by slashing 11% of its total
workforce in the next two years.  As of May 2006, NAB disclosed
that it is "half-way" through eliminating 4,662 jobs worldwide.  
In February 2006, NAB said that it has turned around, was
"moving ahead," and its post-recovery phase was under way.


NATIONAL AUSTRALIA: Considers Acquiring Assets in United Kingdom
----------------------------------------------------------------
National Australia Bank Ltd is considering making acquisitions
in the United Kingdom, the Sydney Morning Herald reports, citing
NAB chief executive officer John Stewart.  Mr. Stewart disclosed
that the bank was considering all possibilities for the future
of its presence in the UK, such as making a large acquisition to
exiting the market altogether.

The Australian Associated Press recounts that NAB owns the
Clydesdale and Yorkshire banks in the UK, which have been
undergoing major restructures including the slashing of
thousands of jobs.

According to the Sydney Herald, NAB's UK business lifted cash
earnings by 12.2% to AU$257 million in the first half of
compared to the second half of fiscal year 2004/05.

Mr. Stewart said that he expects NAB's UK interests to take
about a year longer to become "truly competitive" than the rest
of the group.  However, he said that he was very happy with the
progress there.

NATIONAL FINANCE 2000: Investors Face Losses as Firm Collapses
--------------------------------------------------------------
National Finance 2000 went into receivership on May 9, 2006,
after failing to meet asset-to-debt ratios, The Independent
reported.

According to National Business Review, thousands of investors
are now facing millions of dollars in losses due to the auto
finance company's collapse.

According to the reports, National Finance is the first major
finance company to collapse in recent years and has re-ignited
fears of a wider rout in a sector weighed down by debt following
several years of strong economic growth.  Depositrates.co noted
that accounting firm KPMG had earlier warned of a shake-out in
the finance lending industry, due to the slowing economy and
slowing property market, in its annual survey of financial
institutions.

National Finance's managing director, Allan Ludlow, shouldered
the blame for the Company's collapse, but assures that he will
work closely with the trustee-appointed receivers, John Waller
and Colin McCloy of PricewaterhouseCoopers, to get the maximum
amount of money back for investors.

The company's trustee is Covenant Trustee Company.

Business Review says that National Finance's troubles escalated
when Nichibo Motor Company of Japan, the supplier of Mr.
Ludlow's struggling used car operation, Payless Car, lost
patience over debts of up to NZ$3 million.  Those debts prompted
Mr. Ludlow to launch a prime-time ad campaign to seduce
potential National Finance investors with an offer of 10%
debenture stock.

According to Business Review, the last published figure for
debenture stock issued by National Finance 2000 was NZ$19.2
million as at March 2005 -- a 50% increase compared to the
previous year.

One Payless employee told the Business Review that Mr. Ludlow
"hasn't been able to make the mortgage repayments, or pay the
rent, and he's been using money from National Finance to stack
up the car yards."


NATIONAL FINANCE 2000: S&P Cautions NZ Finance Company Investors
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said that the recent
appointment of receivers to New Zealand-based finance company
National Finance 2000 -- not rated -- shows that parts of New
Zealand's non-bank financial institutions sector exhibit high
risk.

"Transparency of companies in this sector remains low, with
debenture holders experiencing difficulty in identifying
relevant benchmarks to guide their investments," said Standard &
Poor's credit analyst Craig Bennett, Financial Services Ratings.
"Our view remains that there are many companies in this sector
that are vulnerable to a change in industry or economic
conditions."

Standard & Poor's continues its research of the NZ NBFI sector,
especially the credit quality of its larger participants.  "We
expect the larger, more diversified and better capitalized
entities to survive sudden adverse economic conditions," added
Mr. Bennett.

Standard & Poor's research, together with its credit ratings,
plays an important role in both guiding investors to better
understand their investment risks and improving the general
level of transparency of market participants.  "Standard &
Poor's will continue to expand its analysis and opinions on
finance companies, as well as commentary on the broader sector",
added Mr. Bennett.

BHARAT PETROLEUM: Taps NCR for Retail Automation Project
--------------------------------------------------------
State-owned Bharat Petroleum Corporation Ltd will install
technology developed by IT solution provider NCR at its outlets
to ensure better inventory management and customer service, Sify
Business reports.

NCR would install Octane 2000 software solution, a comprehensive
business management system developed specifically for the fuel
retail industry at 73 Bharat Petroleum outlets across eastern

NCR would also provide point-of-sale hardware as well as
integration and installation services for the project in
addition to a complete electronic fund transfer solution to
handle debit, credit and smart-card transactions, Sify says.

Sify adds.

                     About Bharat Petroleum

Headquartered in Maharashtra, India, Bharat Petroleum
Corporation Limited -- http://www.bharatpetroleum.com/-- is  
engaged in refining and marketing petroleum, liquefied petroleum
gas and petrochemical products including middle distillates,
light distillate, lubricants, benzene and toluene.  During the
year 2002, the Group introduced Petro Card and SmartFleet Card
and had around 700,000 customers enrolled in 28 cities.  There
are 4,711 retail outlets and 1,729 LPG distributors that operate
in the country.  The plants of the Group are located in Mahul
and Mallet Road in Mumbai and in Budge.

Bharat Petroleum is currently working to reverse its losses
resulting from the Government's mandate to sell kerosene,
liquefied petroleum gas, petrol and diesel way below market
rates.  On September 23, 2005, the Company delisted its shares
from Madras Stock Exchange Ltd, Calcutta Stock Exchange
Association Ltd and Delhi Stock Exchange Association Ltd.  In
November 2005, Bharat Petroleum's November 2004 profits
dissipated and the Company registered a INR203-crore (US$45.7
million) net loss.  By the end of the third quarter ending
December 31, 2005, the Company posted a US$231 million net loss.  
In January 2006, Bharat Petroleum entered into a merger with
Koichi Refineries Ltd, which shareholders for both companies
accepted, after an initial merger bid was disapproved in
September 2005.  Even with its aggressive expansion moves,
Bharat Petroleum has decided to put aside a US$1.4 million
dollar expansion project due to losses brought about by oil
subsidies, as the Company -- and the entire industry -- suffered
huge losses and has difficulty implementing expansion activities
due to the Government's refusal to allow oil companies to raise
fuel prices despite global crude oil price crossing US$70 a
barrel.  On February 20, 2006, the Petroleum Ministry, however,
has proposed an increase of INR3 per liter each in petrol and
diesel prices and INR20 per cylinder increase in liquefied
petroleum gas price to save the oil companies from going
bankrupt.


BHARAT PETROLEUM: Buys Crude for June and July Deliveries
---------------------------------------------------------
Bharat Petroleum Corporation has purchased 2.2 million barrels
of crude for June and July loading in its tender this month, The
Economic Times reveals.

The state oil firm bought 600,000 barrels of Yemeni Marib Light,
500,000 barrels of Dubai and 500,000 barrels of Malaysian Miri
crude, all for June loading.

The refiner also bought 600,000 barrels of Qatar's al Shaheen
crude for July delivery.

According to The Times, the Company has not awarded a contract
in its tender last month, therefore the orders for the two
months were made at the same time.

PERTAMINA: To Sell Biodiesel Oil in Jakarta
-------------------------------------------
The Troubled Company Reporter - Asia Pacific reported on
April 26, 2006, that PT Pertamina intends to sell two types of
biodiesel fuel starting May 2006 in order to minimize the use of
fossil fuel in the country.

The TCR-AP recounts that B10, containing 10% biodiesel, and 90%
ordinary diesel, and B5 containing 5% biodiesel and 95% ordinary
diesel, will be sold at between IDR4,800 and IDR5,000 per liter.

In an update on May 9, 2006, Antara News reported that PT
Pertamina and the Jakarta City Administration have agreed to
sell the two types of diesel oil through all gas stations in
Jakarta starting on May 20, at the rate of 2,000 kiloliters a
day.  

State Minister for Research and Technology, Kusmayanto Kadiman,
had expressed hope that with the replacement of 5% and 10% of
diesel oil content with pure plan oil in every liter of diesel
oil throughout the country, Indonesia would be capable of
reducing diesel oil import.

Mr. Kusmayanto added that the price of B5 would not be far
different from subsidized diesel oil price and said that people
should not hesitate to use the new kind of diesel oil as it
would not damage vehicle machine.

Mr. Kusmayanto, however, said that he was unsure that the supply
for the new diesel oil could meet public consumption, as there
were no major biodiesel factories that can meet public
consumption for diesel oil.

According to Antara, Mr. Kusmayanto disclosed that the Industry
Ministry has agreed to allocate IDR60 billion to build four
biodiesel factories.

                       About PT Pertamina

PT Pertamina (Persero) -- http://www.pertamina.com/-- is a  
wholly state-owned enterprise.  The enactment of Oil and Gas Law
No. 22/2001 in November 2001 and Government Regulation No.
31/2003 has changed its legal status from a special state-owned
enterprise into a Limited Liability Company.  In carrying out
its activities, PT Pertamina implements an integrated system
from upstream to downstream.  Pertamina operates seven oil
refineries with a total output capacity of around 1 million
barrels per day.  However, these refineries only cover about
three-quarters of domestic oil demand, with the rest being met
by imports.

In 2003, PT Pertamina director of finance Alfred Rohimone
disclosed that the state-owned oil company's financial condition
was in critical condition because its expenditure was surpassing
its income due to its obligation to meet domestic demand with
fuel oil bought at higher prices on he international market.  
Mr. Rohimone stated that with a liquidity position below IDR2
trillion, the Company was already "bleeding."

Despite reporting a net profit of IDR3.03 trillion for the first
six months of 2005, Pertamina's failure to service its financial
obligations was pegged as one of the contributors to Indonesia's
decreased income for the year.

In August 2005, a debt owed by Pertamina to United States firm
Karaha Bodas Company has risen from IDR2.54 trillion to IDR2.99
trillion.  The debt increased when, in 2003, a U.S. court
ordered the Company to pay compensation to KBC, relating to an
international arbitration decision, when the Indonesian
Government halted a geothermal project in Karaha Bodas, East
Java.  Since that time, the debt has steadily risen due to the
Company's failure to pay the compensation immediately.


PERTAMINA: Unit Elnusa Seeks New Investors for Refinery
-------------------------------------------------------
PT Pertamina's unit, PT Elnusa, has signed a joint operation
agreement with National Iranian Oil Refining and Distribution
Company to build a US$3-billion oil refinery in Tuban in East
Java, the Troubled Company Reporter - Asia Pacific reported on
April 17, 2006.  The signing of the contract was held on May 10,
2006, with further agreement to be signed in Iran on May 22.

In an update, AFX News relates that Elnusa's advisor, Global
Union Energy Ventures Ltd, will invite Middle East crude
producers, as well as fuel buyers in the Southeast Asian region,
Japan, Korea and China to complete the project.

According to the report, the memorandum of understanding signed
by the two parties calls for Iran to supply part of the
refinery's crude requirements and provide up to 30% of the
required equity investment.

Elnusa decided to take up the other 20% stake in the project.
The rest will have to be covered by other investors, led by
Elnusa president Rudy Radjab.

With a capacity of 300,000 barrels of oil per day, the refinery
will be one of the largest refineries in Southeast Asia, the
report said.

                       About PT Pertamina

PT Pertamina (Persero) -- http://www.pertamina.com/-- is a  
wholly state-owned enterprise.  The enactment of Oil and Gas Law
No. 22/2001 in November 2001 and Government Regulation No.
31/2003 has changed its legal status from a special state-owned
enterprise into a Limited Liability Company.  In carrying out
its activities, PT Pertamina implements an integrated system
from upstream to downstream.  Pertamina operates seven oil
refineries with a total output capacity of around 1 million
barrels per day.  However, these refineries only cover about
three-quarters of domestic oil demand, with the rest being met
by imports.

In 2003, PT Pertamina director of finance Alfred Rohimone
disclosed that the state-owned oil company's financial condition
was in critical condition because its expenditure was surpassing
its income due to its obligation to meet domestic demand with
fuel oil bought at higher prices on he international market.  
Mr. Rohimone stated that with a liquidity position below IDR2
trillion, the Company was already bleeding.

Despite reporting a net profit of IDR3.03 trillion for the first
six months of 2005, Pertamina's failure to service its financial
obligations was pegged as one of the contributors to Indonesia's
decreased income for the year.

In August 2005, a debt owed by Pertamina to United States firm
Karaha Bodas Company has risen from IDR2.54 trillion to IDR2.99
trillion.  The debt increased when, in 2003, a U.S. court
ordered the Company to pay compensation to KBC, relating to an
international arbitration decision, when the Indonesian
Government halted a geothermal project in Karaha Bodas, East
Java.  Since that time, the debt has steadily risen due to the
Company's failure to pay the compensation immediately.

JAPAN AIRLINES: Posts JPY47 Billion Loss on Rising Fuel Costs
-------------------------------------------------------------
Japan Airlines International Company Limited posted a
consolidated net loss of JPY47.24 billion for the business year
2005, ended March 31, 2006, against a JPY30.10 billion net
profit in 2004.  The current figure is blamed on safety-related
incidents and rising aviation fuel costs, Crisscross News
reports.

The Company also incurred an operating loss of JPY26.8 billion
in 2005, Mainichi Daily News reveals, compared to an operating
profit of JPY56.15 billion in 2004.  Despite a 3.3% increase in
revenues to JPY2.2 trillion, the number of domestic passengers
fell 1.9% on operating difficulties, causing domestic ticket
sales to drop 2.2% to JPY659.9 billion.  According to the
Associated Press, Japan Airlines spent JPY33 billion on
retirement benefit changes, whereas currency fluctuations
adversely affected the Company and prompted JPY6 billion in
losses.

Fuel costs rose to JPY88.2 billion in 2005.  Channel NewsAsia
says that according to JAL chief executive designate Haruka
Nishimatsu, the rising fuel costs for international routes and
safety problems at the airline were the main reasons for its
losses.  For 2006, the Company hedged some 75% of its jet fuel
needs to cushion the impact of further fuel price increases.  

Japan Airlines has had several operating problems in recent
years, the AP notes, such as wheels fallowing off during
landing, an engine that burst into flames, and a flight that
took off with a faulty latch, though no injuries were reported.  
The incidents have created a negative image for the Company,
causing friction among its management.  Despite promises last
March to fix safety problems and cut costs to improve
profitability, the Company's safety incidents still continue,
when an undercarriage flap of a JAL MD90 plane broke upon
landing on April 7, 2006, causing a slight scare to passengers
on board.

JAL president Toshiyuki Shinmachi was pressured by board members
to resign, and on March 2, 2006, the Troubled Company Reporter -
Asia Pacific reported that he tendered in his resignation
effective June 2006.  JAL's board members had asked Mr.
Shinmachi to step down from his position to take the blame for
the Company's poor performance that equaled a JPY11 billion loss
for the quarter ended December 31, 2005, due partly to safety
scares that reduced passenger confidence in the airline.

The Company indicated in its report that its weak earnings were
also the result of slow demand for flights to other Asian
countries on the heels of an anti-Japan protest held in China in
April 2005, The Age relates.  The airline's troubles were
worsened by weak sales in its United States and Asia-bound air
cargo business, forcing it to scrap certain low-margin flights.

In spite of all its problems, Japan Airlines remains optimistic
and expects to return to profit this year, targeting a net
profit of JPY3 billion via increased airfares on local and
international flights, salary cuts, suspension of low-profit
routes and replacing older aircraft with fuel-efficient planes.
The Company does not plan to pay out dividends this year, The
Age adds.

                       About Japan Airlines

Tokyo-based Japan Airlines International Company, Limited --
http://www.jal.com/en/-- was created as a result of the merger  
of Japan Airlines and Japan Air Systems to boost domestic
coverage.  JAL's international passenger operations incurred
losses in recent years due to negative factors such as the
severe acute respiratory distress syndrome epidemic and
terrorism fears.  Due to a series of safety related incidents,
the JAL Group was subjected to a business improvement order and
administrative warnings relating to assurances on air
transportation safety issued by the Ministry of Land,
Infrastructure and Transport in March 2005.  For the JAL Group,
there was a year-on-year decline in passenger demand on
international routes, due mainly to a delay in the recovery of
demand on routes to China and Southeast Asia.  Domestic
passenger demand also fell below its year-earlier level,
particularly among individual passengers, as a result of factors
such as the series of safety problems that occurred.  Demand for
international cargo services also fell year-on-year, due to weak
demand on routes from Japan to East Asian countries and the
United States.  Rising aviation fuel prices compounded JAL's
situation.

Japan Airlines currently need to refinance a JPY100 billion debt
in order to graduate from rehabilitation by its March 2007
deadline.


JAPAN AIRLINES: Denies Report of Plan to Sell New Shares
--------------------------------------------------------
Japan Airlines denied a Nihon Keizai report saying that it plans
to sell JPY150 billion in new shares in order to refinance
bonds, Bloomberg News says.

According to the news report, the airline was planning to sell
the shares to Mizuho Corporate Bank, Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi
UFJ and other lenders.  Bloomberg did not disclose the source of
the information.

JAL released a statement to the Tokyo Stock Exchange, saying
that it acknowledged the need to strengthen its financial
position, but there were no plans to conduct a share sale.  
Mizuho Bank spokesman Ken Atobe said that they have yet to
receive details on a share sale, whereas Bank 0f Tokyo-
Mitsubishi UFJ spokesman Masahiro Okuda was not available to
comment on the planned sale.

Bloomberg News states that Japan Airlines may have to refinance
a JPY100 billion debt in order to graduate from rehabilitation
earlier than its March 2007 deadline.  JAL spokesman Yoshiteru
Suzuki did not comment.  The Company reported an expected JPY47
billion net loss on rising aviation fuel costs, a series of
safety-related incidents that tarnished its reputation as a safe
airline, a decline in the number of passenger, provisions for
retirement benefits, and lesser demand for local and
international flights.

LIVEDOOR COMPANY: Ex-Founder Denies Fraud Charge
------------------------------------------------
Livedoor Company Limited's ex-founder and president, Takafumi
Horie, denied the financial charges brought against him at a
court-led meeting between his lawyers and Tokyo District Court
prosecutors, Kyodo News writes.

The charges were brought against Mr. Horie after he and other
Livedoor directors were found to have conspired to cover up the
Company's JPY310 million loss for the business year ended
September 2004, by doctoring the Company's accounts to show an
inflated pre-tax profit of JPY5.03 billion for the period.
Moreover, Mr. Horie and other Livedoor executives allegedly
relayed false information on a merger, with the intent to boost
the stock price of a Company subsidiary.

The Troubled Company Reporter - Asia Pacific stated on Jan. 26,
2006, that Mr. Horie was detained on January 23, on account of
the alleged fraud and securities law violations.

In a statement released by his lawyers, Mr. Horie said that he
was not aware that he had engaged in any illegal activities.

As a consequence of the accounting scandal, Livedoor stock
prices fell to JPY94 per share as of March 2006 from JPY800 per
share in January, causing the Tokyo Stock Exchange to delist the
Company's shares on April 14, 2006.  A subsequent report by the
TCR-AP on May 3, 2006, says that a group of around 100 Livedoor
shareholders filed damages suit with the Tokyo District Court
against the Company, Mr. Horie and the other former Company
executives involved, seeking compensation for the losses caused
by the share price fall.  A separate group of 1,000 shareholders
are planning to file another damages lawsuit against Livedoor by
the end of the month.

Kyodo News states that according to unnamed court sources, Mr.
Horie is slated to go on trial in July 2006.

DAEWOO GROUP: Founder Faces 15 Years in Jail
--------------------------------------------
Prosecutors sought a 15-year prison sentence for Kim Woo-choong,
the founder and former chairman of Daewoo Group, for an alleged
accounting fraud and embezzlement of funds, The Standard
reports.

According to the report, Mr. Kim was charged of illegally
securing loans worth KRW10 trillion between 1997 and 1998,
"misallocating" about US$20 billion in Daewoo funds through
overseas accounts, and helping doctor Daewoo's and its
subsidiaries' books to falsify assets of about KRW41 trillion.

The Troubled Company Reporter - Asia Pacific has reported on
December 23, 2005, that Mr. Kim flew to China in October 1999,
and did not return to South Korea.  Since then, Mr. Kim had
stayed in France, Germany, Sudan and Vietnam, and had heart
surgery in Germany in 2001.

The TCR-AP recounts that Mr. Kim's return to Korea in June 2005
led to his arrest after a nearly six-year exile abroad.  He was
arrested upon arrival at the Incheon International Airport, and
was indicted in July 2005.

According to the People's Daily, prosecutors also requested the
Seoul Central District Court to order Mr. Kim to surrender US$25
billion.  The court is expected to deliver a ruling at the end
of May.

                          *     *     *

The Troubled Company Reporter - Asia Pacific reported on
February 20, 2006, that Daewoo Group collapsed after the 1997
Asian financial crisis with a debt of around US$80 billion as of
July 1999.

As stated in that TCR-AP report, five former affiliates of
Daewoo Group, which individually went bankrupt and were
separated from the group in 1999, had been up for sale:

   1. Daewoo Engineering & Construction Co.,
   2. Daewoo International Corp.,
   3. Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co.,
   4. Daewoo Electronics Corp., and
   5. Daewoo Precision Industries Co.


HYUNDAI MOTOR: Raises Automobile Prices in U.S. by 4.5%
-------------------------------------------------------
Hyundai Motor Co. has raised the price of its Verna models in
the United States by 4.5% to US$13,845 in February 2006, The
Korea Times reports.

According to the report, the recent surge of the South Korean
currency has become a disturbing hurdle for Hyundai's U.S.
operations because it is expected that their overseas auto
shipments will reap lower profits than before.

The Korea Times disclosed that the won has risen sharply against
the greenback since mid-December 2005, ending at a new eight-
year high of KRW927.90 on May 8, 2006.  

However, the automaker ended up offering US$1,000 in incentives
to local dealers for each Verna sold.  A Hyundai official told
the Korea Times that Hyundai has to give up a substantial part
of its profits to secure market share.

The Company's foreign exchange problems can also be seen through
pricing changes in other models.

                       About Hyundai Motor

Headquartered in Seoul, South Korea, Hyundai Motor Company --
http://www.hyundai-motor.com/-- has been selling cars in the
United States since 1986, but it only started selling its heavy
trucks stateside in 1998.  Hyundai produces 14 models of cars
and minivans, as well as trucks, buses, and other commercial
vehicles.  The Company reestablished itself as Korea's leading
carmaker in 1998 by acquiring a 51% stake in Kia Motors -- since
reduced to about 45%.  The Company also manufactures machine
tools for factory automation and material- handling equipment.

The Troubled Company Reporter - Asia Pacific reported that the
Hyundai Automotive Group is facing its deepest crisis since
chairman Chung Mong-koo took over in 1999, with problems like
the falling United States dollar, high oil prices and union
demands aggravated by a sweeping criminal investigation
regarding the carmaker's alleged creation of slush funds that
were used by at least two lobbyists to bribe government
officials for business favors, including having KRW55 billion of
Hyundai's bad debts written off.

Some of the group's official business has been on hold since the
probe on the slush fund started and several top executives were
summoned for questioning.

On May 2, 2006, Mr. Chung was arrested pursuant to the
recommendation of prosecutors.  Mr. Chung was suspected of
embezzling about US$106 million since 2002 to create a slush
fund, as well as of incurring about US$320 million in damages to
Hyundai.

Amid all this, Hyundai Motor's labor union is demanding a wage
increase of 9.1% or KRW125,524 (US $125), significantly more
than 2005's 6.9% or KRW89,000.  The union is expected to
capitalize on the slush fund allegations in support of its case
and make matters worse for management.


HYUNDAI MOTOR: Farmers' Bank Chief Held in Hyundai Graft Probe
--------------------------------------------------------------
Prosecutors have arrested Chung Dae-kun, head of the National
Agricultural Cooperative Federation, on suspicion of accepting
bribes from Hyundai Motor Co. in a shady real-estate deal, The
Korea Times reports.

Mr. Chung is accused of receiving hundreds of thousands of
dollars from Hyundai Motor in 2001 in return for allowing the
automaker to buy an NACF building in Southern Seoul at a bargain
price.

According to the report, Mr. Chung's arrest came as prosecutors
were investigating where the Hyundai slush fund was spent on and
who received the money.

A court warrant issued on May 9, 2006, will allow the
prosecutors to detain and investigate Mr. Chung until May 11,
2006.

HARVEST COURT: Provides Updates on Loan Default
-----------------------------------------------
Harvest Court Industries Berhad Group and its affiliate
companies have, on July 23, 2004, defaulted in the repayment of
various facilities granted by its bankers:

     1. Affin Bank Berhad;
     2. Utama Merchant Bank Berhad;
     3. RHB Bank Berhad;
     4. Alliance Merchant Bank Berhad;
     5. Public Bank Berhad; and
     6. United Overseas Bank (M) Berhad.

In order to address the default issue, Harvest Court had, on
April 27, 2006, appointed Hwang-DBS Securities Berhad to advise
it on a corporate exercise to restructure the Company.  The
Exercise may involve:

     -- a capital reduction;
     -- a capital raising;
     -- a debt restructuring and settlement; and
     -- the acquisition of suitable assets/businesses which are
        currently being identified.

These proposals are preliminary and will be finalized upon the
completion of a financial and viability assessment and receipt
of feedback after discussions with the Company's lenders and
major creditors.

There are no financial and legal implications in respect of the
default in payments as none of Harvest Court's bankers have
initiated legal action or recalled their facilities.  The HCIB
Group's operations are still ongoing and certain of its bankers'
facilities are still being utilized.

In the event of default, the bankers are empowered to appoint
receiver or receiver and manager.  However, as of the present,
the bankers have taken no action.

The default in payment to any one of Harvest Court's bankers
will cause a cross default with other banks.  Since the Group
has already defaulted in its repayments to each and every one of
the bankers, the issue of cross default has no material
consequences.

Headquartered in Selangor, Malaysia, Harvest Court Industries
Berhad -- http://www.harvestcourt.com/-- is engaged in kiln

provision of construction works and related maintenance
services.  The Group is also involved in the provision of
marketing and management services and investment in shares and
securities.  The Group operates in Malaysia and Australia. The
Group has defaulted on several loan facilities because of a
reduction in sales from 2002 onwards due to a weak global market
as a result of the Iraqi and the severe acute respiratory
syndrome, or SARS, as well as its inability to raise funds via
the equity market due to weak market sentiment.  Due to its
unfavorable financial position, Harvest Court had embarked on an
exercise to restructure the Company, including a debt
restructuring and capital reduction.  The Company's proposed
corporate exercise was rejected by the Securities Commission in
August 2005.  Its appeal to reconsider the rejection was also
junked by the Commission on February 24, 2006.  The Harvest
Court Board is now in talks with lenders and major creditors for
its next course of action.


KUMPULAN BELTON: Shareholders' Equity Falls Short of Requirement
----------------------------------------------------------------
Kumpulan Belton Berhad, on April 28, 2006, released its annual
audited accounts for the year ended December 31, 2005, which
indicated that its shareholders' equity on a consolidated basis
is less than 25% of its issued and paid up capital.  Thus, the
Company is an affected listed issuer and is to comply with the
provisions of the Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad's Amended
Practice Note 17/2005.

As an affected listed issuer, the Company is required to:

   -- submit a Regularization Plan to the relevant authorities
      for approval or, where the relevant authorities' approvals
      are not required, obtain all other approvals necessary for
      the implementation of the plan within eight months;

   -- implement the Regularization Plan within the timeframe
      stipulated by the relevant authorities or where no
      timeframe has been stipulated or allowed by the relevant
      authorities, within the timeframe as imposed by the Bursa
      Securities;

   -- announce the status of the Regularization Plan on a
      monthly basis until further notice from the Bursa
      Securities; and

   -- announce its compliance or non-compliance with a
      particular obligation imposed pursuant to Amended
      PN17/2005 on an immediate basis.

In the event that the Company fails to comply with the
obligation to regularize its condition, all its listed
securities will be suspended from trading, as the case may be,
and delisting procedures will be commenced against the Company.

The Company will be drawing up a plan to regularize the
condition in due course.

Operations of the Group are carried out in Malaysia and
Australia.  The Company and some of its subsidiaries are
involved in litigations and winding-up petitions.  These legal
actions arose from the Company's inability to meet its payment
obligations due to its tight liquidity and weak cashflow.  


MALAYSIA AIRLINES: Prepares Separation Package for Staff
---------------------------------------------------------
Malaysia Airlines is finalizing the Voluntary Separation Scheme
for its staff, Bernama reports, citing Transport Minister Datuk
Seri Chan Kong Choy.

Mr. Choy said that the national carrier is currently working on
the details to be included in the Separation Scheme, which is
expected to be ready in a month's time.  However, the number of
staff affected is not yet determined.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter - Asia Pacific on
May 1, 2006, the Mutual Separation Scheme being worked out by
Malaysia Airlines' management is likely to see the airline's
workers receiving up to three month's pay for every year of
service.  The airline is offering a quantum of between 1.25
months and three months of an employee's last drawn salary for
every year of service.

Sources told The Malay Mail that the payout is believed to be
among the highest offered by any company, adding that the
affected staff should be "happy" with the offer.

The reduction of manpower is one of the strategies taken by
Malaysia Airlines under its domestic rationalization plan that
was announced by the Prime Minister's Department in March this
year, Bernama relates.

The TCR-AP reported on March 29, 2006, that the carrier will
reduce its 23,000-strong workforce by about 6,500 as part of the
downsizing exercise.

The carrier made a loss after tax of MYR1.3 billion for fiscal
year 2005, and MYR616 million for the nine-month ended Dec. 31,

routes.  In late February 2006, it unveiled a radical rescue
plan to raise MYR4 billion in order to stay afloat and return to
profitability by 2007.  Under the restructuring plan, the
airline pledged to cut its budget by 20% across the board,
terminate many unprofitable routes, freeze recruitment except
for front-line staff, crack down on corruption by encouraging
Whistle-blowing and stop corporate sponsorship.


MALAYSIA AIRLINES: Ties up with SITA for New Service System
-----------------------------------------------------------
Malaysia Airlines has selected SITA as its preferred partner to
provide software solutions for its new Passenger Service System,
Asia Pulse reveals.

"SITA will provide IT software from its Horizon portfolio of
passenger management solutions to consolidate Malaysia Airlines'
business requirements," the national flag carrier said in a
statement.

The PSS software solution by SITA will allow Malaysia Airlines
to upgrade its operational capability and business processes.

The Troubled Company Reporter - Asia Pacific recounts that the
new system could be worth some MYR400 million over the next 10
years and will replace its 20-year-old Kommas system, which
handles reservations and departure control.

Asia Pulse says that these solutions will keep the airline
abreast of the industry best practices.  It will also provide
flexibility to support its growing business requirements in the
most cost effective manner.

Malaysia Airlines said this will be achieved with the phased
introduction of the PSS solutions, among others e-ticketing and
pricing decision support.  These will also replace some core
components of its existing KOMMAS reservations and inventory
management system within three to five years.

The state-of-art PSS will support Malaysia Airlines' Business
Turnaround Plan through a structured implementation strategy
focused on several enhanced revenue improvement modules,
according to Asia Pulse.

The PSS will thus automate validation of business processes and
rules to optimize yield and load.

The solutions will also prepare Malaysia Airlines' readiness or
total e-ticketing by December 2007 as required by the
International Air Transport Association, Asia Pulse adds.

      has fallen below 25% of its issued and paid up share
      capital, which is lesser than the minimum listing
      requirement;

   -- the auditors have expressed a modified opinion with
      emphasis on the listed issuer's going concern in its
      latest audited accounts and the shareholders' equity of
      the listed issuer on a consolidated basis is equal to or
      less than 50% of its issued and paid up capital; and

   -- the Company and its subsidiaries have defaulted on
      several loan facilities and is unable to provide a
      solvency declaration.

As an affected listed issuer, Paxelent Corporation was ordered
to:

   * submit a Regularization Plan to the relevant authorities
     for approval or, where the relevant authorities approvals
     are not required, obtain all other approvals necessary for
     the implementation of the Plan within eight months;

   * announce its compliance or non-compliance with a particular
     obligation imposed pursuant to amended PN 17/2005 on an
     immediate basis ;

   * announce the status of its plan to regularize its condition
     on a monthly basis until further notice from Bursa
     Securities; and

   * implement the Plan within the timeframe stipulated by the
     relevant authorities or where no timeframe has been
     stipulated or allowed by the relevant authorities, within
     the timeframe as imposed by Bursa Securities.

Paxelent Corporation's board of directors is deliberating on the
Regularization Plan and will disclose the Plan as soon as it is
finalized.  The Company will face delisting if it fails to
comply with the Bourse's requirements.  

                   About Paxelent Corporation

Paxelent Corporation is engaged in investment holding.  The
principal activities of the subsidiaries are property
investment, provision of information technology solutions,
investment holding, marketing and sale of hard disk drive
components.  The Company is a public limited liability company,
incorporated and domiciled in Malaysia, and is listed on the
Second Board of Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad.

In the fourth quarter of the year ending December 31, 2005, the
Group recorded lower revenue of MYR8.7 million as compared to
MYR12.2 million in the preceding year's corresponding period due
to the disposal of its foreign subsidiaries -- Xiptech Holdings
Pte Ltd and Xiptech Corporation Ltd.  Both subsidiaries have
substantial revenue contribution during the preceding year
corresponding period.  With the said disposal, the
materialization of Paxelent's consolidation reserve has resulted
in profit before tax of MYR21.8 million as compared to the loss
before tax of MYR 20.8 million in the preceding quarter.  

However, despite booking in positive earnings, the Company has
not met the scheduled repayment obligations of its settlement
agreements with several financial institutions arising from the
crystalisation of corporate guarantees to the Company's former
subsidiaries, which had been wound up.  The Company's Board is
currently actively pursuing various restructuring schemes to
address the default.  These schemes would involve, inter alia,
raising funds through partial disposal of assets, potential
debts waivers and rescheduling of the debts.  On-going
discussions with the financial institutions have been positive
and the directors are confident that agreements could be reached
on debts waivers and rescheduling of the debts in the near
future.


PAXELENT CORPORATION: Defaults on MYR48-Million Debt
----------------------------------------------------
Paxelent Corporation has defaulted on its loan payments, the
Company said in a statement to Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad.

The default occurred since Paxelent has been experiencing
financial difficulties and the cash flow of its operating
subsidiaries is not sufficient to meet their working capital
requirements pending the launching of new phase of the e-
government project.

The Company said that is in the process of formulating a debt-
restructuring scheme with its lenders.

The estimated total outstanding as of March 31 2006, in relation
to the payments, which are in default amounts to
MYR47,619,040.79.

Details of the default in payments by the Company are available

PILECON ENGINEERING: Seeks to Avail of Transitional Provision
-------------------------------------------------------------
Based on the Pilecon Engineering Berhad's audited consolidated
results for the financial year ended December 31, 2005, the
Company has triggered three criteria of Bursa Malaysia
Securities Berhad's Amended Practice Note 17 category.

Pilecon is therefore classified as an affected listed issuer
because:

   -- its shareholders' equity on a consolidated basis of
      approximately MYR10.916 million is less than 25% of the
      issued and paid up capital of the Company of about
      MYR199.821 million and is less than the minimum MYR60
      million issued and paid up capital required of companies
      listed on the Main Board of the Securities Exchange;

   -- the auditors have expressed a modified opinion with
      emphasis on Pilecon's going concern in the Company's
      latest audited consolidated financial statements and the
      shareholders' equity of Pilecon on a consolidated basis
      is less than 50% of its issued and paid up capital; and

   -- the Company is in default of payment and is unable to
      provide a solvency declaration, as it is currently in
      the midst of implementing a debt-restructuring scheme.

However, in a transitional provision, the Securities Exchange
will not classify a listed issuer that has triggered the amended
PN17/2005 as an Affected Listed Issuer within three months from
the Effective Date, if that listed issuer fulfills certain
conditions prescribed by the Securities Exchange.  The
determination as to whether an affected listed issuer fulfils
all the conditions set out under category A or B provided under
the Transitional Provision will be at the absolute discretion of
the Securities Exchange.

Of the two Transitional Provision categories provided, Pilecon
falls under category B, involving an affected listed issuer that
is in implementation stage of its regularization plans and whose
proforma figures upon completion of the relevant stage of
implementation show that it will not trigger any of the Enhanced
PN17 Criteria.  In this regard, the Securities Exchange will
consider a listed issuer as being eligible for this condition if
the books closing date for determining the entitlement to
participate in the regularization plans has been fixed or the
approval-in-principle by the Securities Exchange for the
quotation of its new shares has been obtained, or in such other
circumstances as may be determined by the Securities Exchange,
in its absolute discretion.

As Pilecon had, on March 3, 2006, obtained the approval-in-
principle by the Securities Exchange for the listing of and
quotation for its new securities pursuant to its debt-
restructuring scheme, Pilecon will be seeking to avail itself of
the Transitional Provision.  In this regard, Pilecon has made an
application to the Securities Exchange for approval to be
subject to the Transitional Provision on May 8, 2005.

                About Pilecon Engineering Berhad

Headquartered in Selangor Darul Ehsan, Pilecon Engineering
Berhad is engaged in building construction and civil engineering
works.  The Company is also involved in trading and hiring of
plant and equipment for foundation engineering and civil

complex management services.  The Group operates in Malaysia,
Hong Kong and Singapore.  The Company is currently undergoing a
MYR354-million debt-restructuring exercise.  The scheme,
however, was placed in jeopardy following the Securities
Commission's rejection of an inter-conditional proposal to
acquire a piece of land in Johor at a cost of MYR75 million.  
The Commission also rejected the Company's scheme of arrangement
with certain secured creditors.


POHMAY HOLDINGS: Bourse to Delist Securities on May 19
------------------------------------------------------
Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad will delist and remove the
securities of Pohmay Holdings Berhad from the Official List on
May 19, 2006.  Pohmay Holdings is a Practice Note No. 17/2005
company.

Bursa Securities had earlier announced that the securities of
Pohmay would be delisted from the Official List of Bursa
Securities on April 20, 2006, as reported by the Troubled
Company reporter - Asia Pacific.  However, the Company has filed
an application at the High Court seeking for, among others, an
order restraining all further proceedings in any action or
proceedings against it and its subsidiaries, including
proceedings by Bursa Securities, for a period of not more than
90 days from the date of the Court Order.

Pending the determination of the application for a Restraining
Order, the High Court had, on April 18, 2006, granted an interim
stay against Bursa Securities' decision to delist Pohmay's
securities from the official list of Bursa Securities.

The High Court had, on May 2, 2006, decided that Bursa
Securities is not restrained from taking proceedings against
Pohmay.  In the circumstances and in accordance with the
decision of Bursa Securities announced on April 7, 2006,
Pohmay's securities will be delisted from the Official List of
Bursa Securities.

Pohmay's securities, which are currently deposited with Bursa
Malaysia Depository Sdn Bhd, may remain deposited with the Bursa
Depository notwithstanding the delisting of the securities from
the Official List of Bursa Securities.  It is not mandatory for
the securities of a company, which has been de-listed to be
withdrawn from the Bursa Depository.

Upon the de-listing, Pohmay will continue to exist but as an
unlisted entity.  The Company is still able to continue its
operations and business and proceed with its corporate
restructuring and its shareholders can still be rewarded by the
Company's performance.  However, the shareholders will be
holding shares which are no longer quoted and traded on Bursa
Securities.

restructure the Group's loans and is actively working on various
schemes to alleviate the Group from its current financial
predicament.

TENGGARA OIL: Ordered to Regularize Financial Condition
-------------------------------------------------------
Pursuant to the Amended Practice Note 17 criteria, Tenggara Oil
Berhad is classified as an affected listed issuer as its
shareholders' equity on a consolidated basis is less than 25% of
its issued and paid up capital and such shareholders equity is
less than the minimum issued and paid-up capital as required
under the Listing Requirements.

As an affected listed issuer, Tenggara is required to:

   -- make immediate announcement of falling under one of the
      prescribed criteria which is the subject of this
      disclosure;

   -- submit a plan to regularize its condition to the relevant
      authorities for approval within eight months from the date
      of the First Announcement;

   -- implement the Plan within the timeframe stipulated by the
      relevant authorities;

   -- announce the status of its Regularization Plan on a
      monthly basis; and

   -- announce its compliance or non-compliance with a
      particular obligation imposed pursuant to PN17/2005 on
      an immediate basis.

In the event Tenggara Oil fails to comply with all the
provisions of Amended PN 17, Bursa Securities initiate delisting
proceedings against the Company.

The Company is evaluating various options in its endeavor to
formulate a plan to regularize its financial condition.  Once
the Tenggara Board of Directors has prepared and completed the
restructuring scheme, the requisite announcement outlining the
restructuring scheme will be made to Bursa Securities,
accordingly.

                     About Tenggra Oil Berhad

Tenggara Oil Berhad is undertaking a divestment and
restructuring exercise, which will reposition it as a service-
oriented and trading group from its current resource-based
businesses.  Current businesses include investment holding,
supply of ready mixed concrete, property holding, management and
construction.  The Group intends to dispose of its property and
construction operations and had ceased its general timber
merchant activities by the end of year 2000.  As part of a
corporate revamp exercise, the Company has repositioned itself
in the oil and gas business, which will be its core business.  
The Group will accelerate its involvement in this industry,
through investment in joint ventures and through acquisitions.
The Company is headquartered in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.  

Tenggara Oil incurred a lower pre-tax loss of MYR3.9 million for
the fourth quarter of the fiscal year ended January 31, 2006, as
against a loss of MYR8.3 million in the corresponding quarter
last fiscal year due to the lower operating losses in the
lubricant division, investment holding and other divisions.  The
Company's current pre-tax loss is, however, higher compared to
the MYR1.9-million loss in the preceding quarter.  The pre-tax
loss for the quarter under review was largely attributable to
the higher operating loss of investment holding, as well as the
ready mix concrete division.  Higher losses in these divisions
were primarily due to provision for doubtful debts.

In view of the current high oil prices especially as it impacts
on the Group's lubricant business, Tenggara Oil is planning to
reactivate its construction activities and is actively
negotiating for a number of projects to sustain its operations.  
The Group is negotiating with interested parties for acquisition
of appropriate assets to strengthen the foundation and future
earnings stream of the Group.

ABOITIZ TRANSPORT: Reports PHP192.4 Million Quarterly Net Loss
--------------------------------------------------------------
Aboitiz Transport System Corporation suffered a PHP192.4 million
net loss in the first quarter of the 2006 fiscal year due to
weak sales from its international charter business, as well as
falling passenger and freight volumes in its shipping business,
the Philippine Inquirer reports.

The Company posted a lower PHP167.2 million net loss for the
same quarter last year.  For the first quarter of 2006, year-on-
year consolidated revenues fell 12% to PH2.5 billion.  Aboitiz
Transport released a statement explaining that its capacity
reduction in the shipping business led to lower passenger and
freight volumes, and unfavorable market conditions caused a
decline in its international charter business from Company unit
Jebsen Management BVI Limited.

The Inquirer says Aboitiz Transport established cost cuts in the
face of higher fuel prices, which translated to an 8% drop in
expenses to PHP2.7 billion, from PHP3 billion in 2005.  The
Company also shrank its total bank debt to PHP2.55 million in
the first quarter this year.

Aboitiz Transport System Corporation -- http://www.atsc.com.ph/  
-- is the only total and integrated transport and logistic
solutions provider in the country, and is engaged in the
movement of people (via its SuperFerry shippping business) and
the movement of cargoes (via its 2GO freight business).

It is a member of the Aboitiz & Company under its publicly
listed entity, Aboitiz Equity Ventures.  The Aboitiz group is
one of the largest and most diversified corporations in the
country with business interests spanning various industries in
the Philippines such as power, banking, food production,
property development, construction, shipbuilding, and
leisure/resort.

As of September 30, 2005, Aboitiz Transport's current assets
equaled PHP1.88 billion, whereas its total current liabilities
amounted to PHP3.38 billion.  The Company's debt-to-equity ratio
was at 1.3:1.00 as of September 30, 2005.


NATIONAL POWER: Prepares to Pay Damages to Semirara Residents
-------------------------------------------------------------
National Power Corporation will start paying compensation to
around 188 residents of Semirara Island in Caluya, Antique,
within the next two months, for damages caused by an oil spill
from a Company barge in December 2005, ABS-CBN News reveals.

Napocor corporate communications consultant Dennis Gana
announced the payment plan in a press conference last week,
adding that the Company is now evaluating the damage caused by
the oil spill, with the help of the Antique provincial
government and the Philippine Coast Guard.

On December 18, 2005, some 200,000 liters of bunker fuel spilled
over from Napocor Power Barge 106 into the waters of Semirara
Island, and damaged 113 hectares of mangrove and beach area.  
The Manila Times says that according to a study by the
University of the Philippines-Visayas, the oil spill destroyed
coral reefs, mangroves, sea grasses and other aquatic life in
the area.

A report by the Troubled Company Reporter - Asia Pacific on
January 30, 2006, indicated that the Joint Congressional Power
Committee ordered National Power to clean up the oil spill
immediately.  The Company employed 250 fishermen to facilitate
the clean-up, spending over PHP21 million.

Mr. Gana added that National Power is slated to pay damages up
to PHP8 million, as well as PHP4.5 million to PHP5 million in
livelihood compensation to the affected residents.  The
livelihood payments would be released first, so that the
residents could start earning a living again.  The Coast Guard
and Semirara barangay officials will determine how much each
resident would receive.

Aside from damages payments, ABS-CBN News relates, National
Power plans to provide a deep-sea fishing vessel for the
fishermen's use, as well as lessons on seaweed planting and
gathering, to reduce the dependence on fishing as the sole means
of livelihood.

Antique Representative Exequiel B. Javier told the Times in an
interview that he visited Semirara Island to ensure that the
payment would go directly to the affected residents.

                      About National Power

Headquartered in Quezon City, Philippines, National Power
Corporation -- http://www.napocor.gov.ph/-- is a state-owned  
utility that builds and operates nuclear, hydroelectric,
thermal, and alternative power generating facilities.  It works
with independent producers under a build-operate-transfer
program.  With a generating capacity of more than 11,500
megawatts, Napocor sells electricity to distributors and
industrial companies.  To comply with the privatization bill
approved by the Philippine Congress, the Company has begun
selling off its generation assets to help pay for its estimated
debt of PHP600 billion.  It also separated its transmission
operations into a new subsidiary, the National Transmission
Corporation.

National Power first incurred losses in 1998 after the Asian
financial crisis and expensive contract terms from independent
power producers.  The Company posted a PHP29.9 billion loss in
2004, after a net loss of PHP117 billion in 2003.

The Government absorbed National Power's PHP200 billion debt,
which was incurred when the government-owned-and-controlled
corporation adopted international accounting standards, forcing
the Company to report its foreign exchange losses.

The Troubled Company Reporter - Asia Pacific reported on April
5, 2006, that for 2005, National Power posted a PHP16 million
profit for the first time in seven years, on the Energy
Regulation Commission's approval of a rate increase, the use of
an improved fuel mix and better fuel prices.

               About Informatics Holdings Limited

Informatics Holdings Limited -- http://www.informatics.edu.sg/
-- was established in 1983, in response to Asia's economic
growth fostering tremendous demands for skilled Information
Technology manpower and knowledge-based workers to build and
sustain the rapid economic development in the region.  
Informatics' core business activities are training and
education, IT-related services and franchise operations.  
Informatics was at the center of a scandal that began in mid-
April 2004 when it admitted that it has overstated profits and
understated costs for the nine months ended December 2003 in its
quarterly financial statement.  The scandal started a string of
losses for the education services provider.  Informatics
Holdings, however, managed to cut its losses for the fourth
successive quarter in its third-quarter financial results for
the fiscal year 2006.

Savings in staff costs and other operating expenses, which was
due to a group consolidation exercise, led to a 36% decrease in
net loss from a SGD12.2 million net loss in 2004 to a SGD7.8
million net loss in 2005.  Despite a decline in revenue from
SGD21. 7 million to the current SGD14.5 million, it has
continued to improve in its quarterly performance through lower
staff costs and substantial savings in operating costs.

Due to continued financial support from majority shareholder
Berjaya and efforts to sell non-core assets, Informatics
holdings hopes to get back to black by continuing to increase
revenue and control costs.  The Company is currently looking
into agreements with underwriters on an earlier proposed rights
issue, in order to raise working capital.

BANK OF AYUDHYA: Fitch Upgrades IDR Ratings to 'BB+' from 'BB'
--------------------------------------------------------------  
Fitch Ratings has upgraded Bank of Ayudhya Public Company
Limited's:

   * long-term foreign currency issuer default rating to 'BB+'
     Outlook Stable from 'BB'

   * foreign currency subordinated debt rating to 'BB' from
     'BB-'

   * national long-term rating to 'A(tha)' Outlook Stable from
     'A-(tha)' and

   * national subordinated debt rating to 'A-(tha)' from
     'BBB+(tha)'.

Individual and Support ratings of 'D' and '3', respectively, are
affirmed.

The upgrades primarily reflect the continued improvement in
profitability.  While provisioning risks remain, revenue growth
and warrant conversion should enable BAY to gradually strengthen
reserve coverage and capital adequacy.

The Outlook for the ratings is Stable given underlying
profitability and asset quality should be maintained
notwithstanding a more challenging operating environment in
2006.  A further significant decline in impaired and
restructured loans, and stronger reserve coverage and capital
positions, will be necessary to support further improvement in
the bank's ratings.  Given BAY's deposit share and systemic
importance in Thailand, there is a moderate probability of
government support, should this be needed.

BAY reported net income of THB6.1 billion in 2005, significantly
higher than the THB4.7 billion seen in 2004, aided primarily by
stronger loan growth, improved fee income, as well as higher
gains from investments and sales of foreclosed properties.  Its
net interest margin continued to rise to 2.7% in 2005 from 2.5%
in 2004 following the redemption of hybrids in March 2004, loan
growth and improved asset quality.  Its ROAA and ROAE have
improved steadily to 1% and 16.8% respectively in 2005.  In
Q106, BAY continued to report improved performance with net
income rising to THB1.8 billion from THB1.5 billion in Q105
owing to loan growth and rising lending rates, although higher
funding costs may see further margin improvement constrained.

Impaired loans totalled THB64.9 billion or 14.3% at end-2005,
down from THB65.6 billion or 15.6% at end-2004 due mainly to bad
loan write-offs.  Loan loss reserves at end-2005 totalled
THB21.4 billion, or about 33% of impaired loans, still below
most other Thai banks, underscoring the risks of further
provisioning.  BAY justifies this difference by highlighting its
lower level of impaired syndicated loans and a higher ratio of
collateral-backed loans to small and medium-sized businesses.

At end-2005, BAY's total capital improved to 11% of risk-
weighted assets from 10.7% at end-2004 while with Tier 1 capital
rose to 6.6% from 6.2% due mainly to earnings growth and the
exercise of warrants, although the figures exclude H205 profits.
Including this net income, the figures improve to approximately
11.6% and 7.2%, respectively.  Although at 110.8% its net
impaired loans/equity ratio remained very high, earnings
recovery and warrant conversion by its major shareholder over
the next two to three years should help restore capital buffers.

BAY was established in 1945 and is currently Thailand's sixth-
largest commercial bank, with 502 branches, a 9.2% share of the
system's loans and 9.6% of deposits.  It has affiliates in
finance, securities, insurance, fund management and leasing.  
The major shareholder, the Ratanarak family, has controlled the
bank since the mid-1960s, and with related group holdings,
currently holds about 37% of BAY's shares and is involved in the
board and management of the bank.

EASTERN PRINTING: SET Allows Trading and Transfers of Security
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Stock Exchange of Thailand decided to transfer the
securities of Eastern Printing Public Company Ltd from the
Rehabco Sector to the Media and Publishing Sector on May 18,
2006, Suthichai Chitvanich, SET's executive vice-president,
says.  

Mr. Suthichai added that trading of Eastern Printing securities
would be allowed from May 18 onwards.

On March 31, 2006, the Troubled Company Reporter - Asia Pacific
reported that the Company posted a net profit of THB112.19
million for the year 2005.  The result was 9.99% better than the
Company's net profit of THB102.00 million in 2004.
  
The TCR-AP added that due to the Company's commendable
performance, SET allowed the posting of the Company's securities
on April 21, 2006.  SET had stated that trading of securities is
subject to Eastern Printing's return to its former sector.

                          *     *     *

Headquartered in Bangkok, Thailand, Eastern Printing Public
Company Limited provides general printing services.  

After suffering a THB1.33 billion capital deficit and a
THB276.25 million, the Company was placed under rehabilitation
since January 17, 2002 with EPCO Management Company Limited as
Plan Administrator.  In a December 27, 2005 company release, the
Company stated that it has met all of its obligations under the
rehabilitation plan, and that the Plan Administrator has
petitioned Thailand's Central Bankruptcy Court seeking to exit
rehabilitation.


NFC FERTILIZER: Seeks Clarification on Fertilizer Feasibility
-------------------------------------------------------------
On March 3, 2006, the Troubled Company Reporter - Asia Pacific
reported that NFC Fertilizer Public Company Ltd employed Seamico
Securities Public Company Limited as financial advisor to study
alternatives in respect of the Company's fertilizer
manufacturing business, including risk assessment.  

The Company informed the Stock Exchange of Thailand on April 5,
2006, that Seamico's financial viability study reported that
NFC's fertilizer factory is currently running below break-even
level, and thus has inadequate revenue to offset expenses.  As a
result, the Company will suffer more operating loss if it
continues production.

Seamico's study is divided into four scenarios with these
alternatives:

   1. NFC should discontinue production of Unit 300 (Sulfuric
      Acid) since it would cost THB59 million more by producing
      sulfuric acid than by importing;

   2. NFC should continue production of Unit 400 (Phosphoric
      Acid) since it costs THB11 million less by producing
      phosphoric acid than by importing;

   3. Produce NPK fertilizer; NFC needs annual production volume
      of 0.83 million ton to cover its total fixed cost given
      that the contribution margin is approximately THB1,400 per
      ton.  However, NFC's ability to achieve that production
      volume is uncertain since the highest level of historical
      production that the company achieved was only 0.54 million
      ton per annum;

   4. Whereas if the Company discontinues production of NPK
      fertilizer, its net operating loss will be decreased by
      THB183 million compared if it continues its production.

In response to the report, the Company's Board of Directors has
approved a temporary plant shutdown to prevent further operating
loss and protect the Company's cash flow.

In a subsequent filing with the SET, NFC Fertilizer stated that
it is seeking further clarification of the report from Seamico
regarding the Company's fertilizer manufacturing business.

The Company is currently consulting its technical advisor to
consider the budget projections to improve the plant for
fertilizer production and investment opportunity and viability
of further investment.

                          *     *     *

Headquartered in Bangkok, NFC Fertilizer Public Company Limited  
-- http://www.nfc.co.th/-- produces chemical fertilizer  
containing nitrogen, phosphate, and potash, under its Nation
Fertilizer brand name.  Additionally, it imports and distributes
urea, ammonium sulfate, and potassium chloride fertilizers.  The
Company also distributes phosphoric acid and gypsum, which are
by-products of its fertilizer production.  

In the third quarter of 2004, the Company had entered into a
debt restructuring in accordance with its business
rehabilitation plan.  The Company then reported a gain on debt
restructuring of THB11.29 billion, which was presented as an
extraordinary item in the statement of income for the year ended
December 31, 2004.  Subsequently, on August 24, 2004, the Plan
Administrator made a request to Thailand's Central Bankruptcy
Court to cancel its business rehabilitation, which the Court
approved on September 13, 2004.

Currently, the management sees the Company as facing high risks
both in business and environmental matters.  The Company's
fertilizer factory is greatly deteriorated and suffers from a
lack of maintenance from the past as a result of insufficient
working capital for a long time.  Consequently, the Company
needs significant investment funds to repair the factory.  This
results in increasing high costs, whereas the sale of fertilizer
is subject to seasonal factors, especially weather.  Also,
government policy dictates a decrease in the use of chemical
fertilizers, which directly impacts the Company's revenues and
consequently further investment is not worthwhile.  Therefore,
the management proposed to change the Company's business plan
toward providing logistic services including all warehouses and
related services.
