AIR NEW ZEALAND: Sees Lower Profit on Higher Jet Fuel Prices
------------------------------------------------------------
Air New Zealand Ltd. is expected to post reduced profit for the
fiscal year ending June 30, 2006, due to higher jet fuel prices,
the New Zealand Herald reports.

The AFX News Limited recounts that Air NZ released an earnings
guidance in November 2005 saying that its full-year profit
before tax and one-off items would be NZ$140 million, down from
the NZ$235 million profit a year earlier.

The Herald relates that the average market forecast for Air NZ's
full-year net profit had dropped further to NZ$105 million from
the reduced NZ$112 million projection four weeks ago.  The
Company's net profit in the previous financial year was NZ$180
million.

Radio New Zealand cites Air NZ as saying in a commentary
accompanying its March and April operating statistics that the
reductions are consistent with the fact that average jet fuel
prices have increased from US$72 a barrel in the first half to
US$78 a barrel in the second half of this financial year.

In April, Air NZ raised airfares by 10%, as jet fuel prices
peaked at US$90 a barrel, Radio NZ says.  The carrier reported
that passenger numbers rose by 2.5% to 2.2 million in March and
April, while seat capacity rose 2%.

The airline says it expects to expand market share in Asia after
the introduction of bigger, more fuel-efficient aircraft, a new
direct flight to Shanghai, and its new service to London via
Hong Kong.

                      About Air New Zealand  

Based in Auckland, New Zealand, Air New Zealand is the country's
flag air carrier, with domestic and international passenger and
freight operations, and an aviation engineering business.  

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter - Asia Pacific on
September 2, 2005, Moody's Investors Service affirmed its Ba1
issuer rating on Air New Zealand Limited after the airline  
announced its annual results for FY2005.  Air NZ's rating
reflected its dominant position in the New Zealand domestic
market, with around 80% market share, and the profitability of
domestic operations following their restructuring to a low-cost
network model.  Also supporting Air NZ's rating was its solid
liquidity position, with cash balances of NZ$1,071 million held
as at June 30, 2005.  However, while Air NZ has a solid position
in New Zealand and other parts of the international network are
performing well, intense competition on trans-Tasman routes has
resulted in it being unprofitable for Air NZ.  International
competition also limits Air NZ's ability to expand.  Its
management is also aware of the airline's vulnerability to
external shocks and the actions of key competitors.

Moody's had expressed concern regarding the airline's limited
track-record since the collapse of Ansett Australia in 2001.  
However, FY2004 and FY2005 results have been in line with
expectations.  Air NZ has signaled that the recent increases in
fuel price will adversely affect profitability in 2006, with the
potential to decrease profit by 40% from 2005.  Moody's believes
that this drop, which would result in EBITDAR/(Interest +Rent)
between 2.0x and 2.4x, and Adjusted Debt/EBITDAR of just under
5x, would not adversely affect the rating of the airline.   
Moody's expected Air NZ to have significant capital expenditure
requirements over the next three years -- which will be funded
from a combination of operating cash flow, debt and operating  
leases -- as it acquires additional aircraft.  However, Moody's
considered the increased debt load to be manageable within Air
NZ's rating.  The company is expected to be free cash flow   
positive from 2007.  Moody's said that if fuel prices continued
high for the medium to long term and no rationalization in
trans-Tasman routes were forthcoming, then Air NZ's credit
metrics could be negatively affected.  Operating margin less
than 3%, EBITDAR/(Interest+Rent) less than 2x and Adjusted
Debt/EBITDAR greater than 5.5x would be a trigger for Moody's to
review the rating.

FORTESCUE METALS: NCC Defends Miner's Need for Railway Access
-------------------------------------------------------------
The National Competition Council told a Senate Estimates
Committee on May 30, 2006, that millions of dollars worth of
iron ore could be stranded in the Western Australia region if
Fortescue Metals Group Ltd. does not reach a rail deal to ship
the material to a nearby port, the Sydney Morning Herald says.

In a report on May 23, 2006, MarketWatch said that the
Australian Government had barred Fortescue from gaining access
to BHP Billiton's Pilbara rail line.  The BHP rail deal would
have allowed Fortescue to use its own trains to cart 60-70
million tonnes of iron ore in the next decade on BHP's rail line
from the small Mindy Mindy deposit to Port Hedland.

With Federal Treasurer Peter Costello's rejection of Fortescue's
application to use the BHP railway, the miner will have to pay
BHP to ship the ore or build its own rail infrastructure.

Moreover, MarketWatch relates that Treasurer Costello's ruling
wiped 17% or AU$292 million from Fortescue's market
capitalization.

The Australian Associated Press recounts that the NCC has
earlier recommended that Fortescue be granted the right to
negotiate with BHP Billiton to use its 295-kilometer rail line
to Port Hedland.  However, Treasurer Costello dismissed the
NCC's recommendation without providing more details regarding
his decision.

MarketWatch says that Treasurer Costello's ruling follows
reports that the Western Australian state government switched
support from Fortescue and lobbied Canberra to reject the NCC
recommendation on the basis that a state-based regime would be
more effective.  Treasurer Costello's decision, made amid
surging iron ore profits and royalties, came a month after the
state government blocked explorer Cazaly Resources Ltd. from
developing a Pilbara iron ore deposit and returned it to Rio
Tinto Plc.

ABC News Online says that the NCC's chief executive officer,
John Feil, told the Senate that it was far too expensive for
junior resources companies to build new rail lines.  Mr. Feil
said that unless the WA Government came up with an access
arrangement for Fortescue, the Company might be left with no way
of shipping the iron ore itself.

West Australian Treasurer Eric Ripper notes that the Government
is negotiating with the major resources companies in the region
for a haulage agreement for third parties.  He added that BHP
Billiton, on the other hand, has told the Government that it
will negotiate in good faith on the matter.

                        About Fortescue  

Headquartered in West Perth, Western Australia, Fortescue Metals
Group Limited -- http://fmgl.com.au/-- is involved in the  
exploration of iron ore through a project to mine iron ore in
the Chichester Ranges, in the Pilbara region of Western
Australia and exporting it from Port Hedland.

Fortescue's troubles began when its Chief Executive Officer,
Andrew Forrest, admitted to a AU$500-million blowout on the cost
of port and rail infrastructure in the Pilbara Project because
of price hikes for steel, fuel, construction materials and
contract labor.  The Company also disclosed that the hampered
progress brings in the possibility that the Company may not meet
its ore delivery schedule and pushes up costs at resource
developments across Western Australia.  In May 2005, the
Australian Stock Exchange pressured Fortescue to explain matters
about the troubled project and to explain how the Company would
be able to dispose of its lower grade order for 95% of the price
obtained by rivals BHP Billiton and Rio Tinto for their top-
quality products.  The ASX referred the Fortescue matter to the
Australian Securities and Investments Commission, which recently
commenced a legal action against the Company.

ASIC alleges that Fortescue is engaged in misleading and
deceptive conduct and has failed to comply with its continuous
disclosure obligations when it announced various contracts with
Chinese entities on Aug. 23 and November 5, 2004.  In
particular, Fortescue did not disclose that the Chinese parties
had not reached a concluded agreement on fundamental aspects of
the projects and they had merely agreed that they would in the
future jointly develop and agree on the "agreed" matters.  ASIC
is seeking civil penalties of up to AU$3 million against
Fortescue.

HIH INSURANCE: Ex-Director Knows of Omitted Prospectus Data
-----------------------------------------------------------
The Australian Securities and Investments Commission told a
Sydney Court on June 1, 2006, that HIH Insurance Limited's
former finance director, Dominic Fodera, signed off on an HIH
prospectus despite knowing that relevant information was
omitted, The Australian notes.

According to the report, Mr. Fodera appeared in the Downing
Centre Local Court in Sydney at the start of a two-day committal
hearing.  Mr. Fodera is facing seven charges under corporations
law, including authorizing a prospectus containing a material
omission that may have "significant ramifications" for HIH.

The ASIC asserts that the HIH prospectus, which Mr. Fodera
signed in 1998, sought AU$150 million from investors for a
takeover of FAI Insurances Limited and FAI General Insurance
Company.

HIH took over FAI for AU$300 million that year, and the takeover
has been partly blamed for HIH's collapse in March 2001.

It is alleged that the prospectus failed to disclose the full
details of previous agreements between HIH and co-underwriter
Societe Generale Australia, The Australian says.

Barrister Alan MacSporran, SC, appearing on behalf of the
commonwealth Director of Public Prosecutions, said that if the
full details of the transaction had been made known to
investors, the capital raising may not have been able to
proceed.

                      About HIH Insurance  

HIH Insurance Limited -- the holding company of the HIH Group --
was a publicly listed company in Australia.  Prior to its
failure, the HIH Group was known as the second largest general
insurer in Australia, and had operations in many other
countries.  

On March 15, 2001, the HIH Group failed, with a deficiency now
believed to be between AU$3.6 billion and AU$5.3 billion.  
Provisional liquidators were appointed to HIH Insurance Limited
and many of its subsidiaries.  Other insolvency practitioners
were appointed to various group companies incorporated in other
parts of the world.  In August 2001, the major Australian
companies in the HIH Group were placed into liquidation.

In November 2005, the Australian Liquidators received a court
order granting permission to convene meetings of creditors of
the eight HIH companies that formerly held Australian insurance
licenses to consider and vote on the proposed Schemes of
Arrangement.  On November 25, 2005, the English Provisional
Liquidators received a similar court order from the High Court
in England.  These meetings were held on March 29, 2006.

HIH's collapse is known to be the nation's biggest corporate
failure.

QANTAS AIRWAYS: Appoints Ex-CEO to Board of Directors
-----------------------------------------------------
Qantas Airways Ltd. appointed its former chief executive
officer, James Strong, to its board of directors, the Sydney
Morning Herald reports, citing Bloomberg News.

The Sydney Herald recounts that Mr. Strong ran the airlines from
1993 to 2001, overseeing its switch from government ownership to
sharemarket listing.  

In a statement, Qantas says that Mr. Strong will fill a non-
executive vacancy on the board from July 1, 2006.

                      About Qantas Airways

Headquartered in Sydney, Australia, Qantas Airways --
http://www.qantas.com.au/-- is the world's second oldest  
airline and is also recognized as one of the leading long-
distance airlines, having pioneered services from Australia to
North America and Europe.  The Qantas Group employs
approximately 38,000 staff across a network that spans 145
destinations in Australia, Asia-Pacific, Americas, Europe and
Africa.  The Qantas Group also operates a diverse portfolio of
airline-related businesses, including Engineering Technical
Operations and Maintenance Services, Airports and Catering,
Qantas Freight, Qantas Holidays, Qantas Defence Services and
Qantas Consulting.

Qantas started having problems in 2003 with the ill effects of
the Iraq War and the SARS outbreak, on top of the already
difficult period following the events of the 9/11 terrorist
attacks, the Afghanistan war and the terror threats, which lead
to a downturn in bookings to other Asian countries, and
affecting most of European routes as well.  The adverse effects
also affected other areas of the business including Qantas
Flight Catering, Qantas Holidays and Australian Airlines.  
Qantas started reviewing, and widened, the range of initiatives
it had put in place following the triggering events.  These
initiatives included the reduction of staffing numbers through
the use of accumulated leave to the equivalent of 2,500 full-
time employees by June 2003 and by the equivalent of 1,000
employees between July and September 2003; a restructuring
program involving 1,000 redundancies, 400 permanent positions
eliminated through attrition and 300 permanent positions
converted from full time to part time; a freeze on capital and
discretionary expenditure; expansion of the leave without pay
program; increased use of part time workers; significant
restructuring of work practices and activities; and reduction of  
capital expenditure, including retirement of some aircraft and
deferral of delivery of new aircraft.  In December 2003, Qantas
unveiled its new low cost-carrier airline, Jetstar Asia, which
later proved to be a headache after failing to gain access to
crucial markets such as Indonesia and China.  In June 2005,
Qantas admitted it is still struggling to recover its investment
in Jetstar, despite having managed to lease out four of its
unused Airbus 320s.  Qantas went into another round of job cuts
in late June 2005, a move that was punctuated with more than 600
jobs slashed in the first half of its financial year, and yet
another one announced in February 2006 amidst uncertainty of
outsourcing the airline's heavy maintenance works overseas.

The Troubled Company Reporter - Asia Pacific reported on May 19,
2006, that Qantas will slash 1,000 management, support and
administration jobs by the end of 2006 to counter a looming AU$1  
billion surge in its fuel bill.

WESTPOINT GROUP: ASIC Investigates KPMG Over Audit of Westpoint
---------------------------------------------------------------
The Australian Securities and Investment Commission is
investigating accounting firm KPMG over its audit of Westpoint
Group, The Age reports.

The Australian Associated Press relates that KPMG is
investigated for signing off on the Westpoint accounts before
the property group collapsed late last year, leaving about 4,000
investors more than AU$300 million worse off.

KPMG specifically signed an unqualified Westpoint audit report
in 2004 and potentially breached its obligation to report any
solvency concerns, the AAP says.  Moreover, ASIC chairman Jeff
Lucy stated that KPMG approved the so-called independent
"research house document", a crucial report for financial
planners and investors that gave Westpoint products a positive
financial assessment.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, ASIC investigators in
Perth, Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane are sifting through
thousands of boxes of documents that may provide evidence to
support a claim against the accounting firm.

The Sydney Herald says that ASIC is considering commencing a
professional negligence action against KPMG to seek recovery of
investors' money if Westpoint's liquidators and receivers did
not do so first.

A report by The Australian states that ASIC is also taking aim
at the financial planners who took large commissions in
channelling investors into the Westpoint finance group.
The Australian cites Mr. Lucy as saying that "please explain"
letters had been sent to 37 financial planning groups, with
clients involved in the Westpoint group, and to entities
relating to Westpoint directors.

                     About Westpoint Group

Headquartered in Perth, Western Australia, the Westpoint Group
-- http://westpoint.com.au/-- is engaged in property  
development and owns or manages retail and commercial properties
with a total value of over AU$300 million.  The Group's troubles
began in 2005 when the Australian Securities and Investments
Commission commenced a series of legal proceedings in relation
to a number of companies within the Westpoint Group.  ASIC
contends that Westpoint projects are suffering from significant
shortfall of assets over liabilities so that hundreds of
investors are at serious risk of not receiving repayment of
their investments.  These investigations were then followed by
the winding up of a number of Westpoint's mezzanine companies.  
ASIC also sought wind-up orders after the Westpoint companies
failed to comply with ASIC's requirement to lodge accounts for
certain financial years.  These wind-up actions are still
continuing.

In February 2006, a wind-up order was issued by the Federal
Court in Perth against Westpoint Corporation Pty Ltd.  ASIC had
applied to wind up the company on grounds of insolvency.  ASIC
believes that Westpoint Corporation is responsible for
arranging, managing and coordinating Westpoint Group's property
projects as well as holding money for other group companies.  
ASIC was concerned that Westpoint Corporation was unable to pay
its debts, including its obligations under the guarantees given
to the mezzanine companies to make good expected shortfalls in
the repayment of amounts owed to investors.  The Westpoint
Group's collapse is considered by many as the largest of its
type in recent years, with small investors being the biggest
group affected.  Investors are currently joining forces to
commence a class action against Westpoint and its advisors.

WHOLE WIN: Court Appoints Administrator for Company's Property
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Securities and Futures Commission of Hong Kong, on June 1,
2006, disclosed that John Lees, of John Lees & Associates Ltd,
has been appointed by the court to administer the property of
Whole Win Securities Ltd and the property it holds on behalf of
its clients.

The Commission applied for the appointment of an administrator
under Section 213 of the Securities and Futures Ordinance.

The action follows a restriction notice that was issued by the
SFC against Whole Win on May 26, 2006.  The restriction notice
prohibits Whole Win from carrying on the business of dealing in
securities and from dealing with or disposing of its property
and the property of its clients.

The administrator, according to the SFC, was appointed
principally to protect the interests of Whole Win's clients.  
Moreover, the court has granted the administrator wide powers
including the power to investigate Whole Win's affairs, to
verify clients' claims and, subject to first obtaining a
direction from the court, to return client assets.

The SFC relates that it asked the administrator to focus first
on establishing the position of cash clients and returning their
securities.

According to the SFC, in addition to serious deficiency in Whole
Win's liquid capital and the provision of false and misleading
financial returns, the ongoing investigation by the SFC staff
has revealed evidence to suggest that Whole Win has pledged the
stock of some cash clients to its banks without due
authorization, in breach of the Securities and Futures Rules.

There is also evidence to suggest that Whole Win has failed to
keep cash clients' money in a segregated account at all times,
in breach of the Securities and Futures Rules, SFC adds.

This prompted SFC to apply for the appointment of an
administrator before the Court saying "in view of the serious
nature of these breaches and Whole Win's financial position, the
SFC does not consider it to be in the public interest or in the
interest of the investing public to permit Whole Win and its
management to verify clients' positions and handle the return of
client assets."

The SFC believes that the appointment of an administrator will
speed up the task of identifying whether any client assets are
missing.  The administrator will also take appropriate steps to
protect the interests of clients who have applied through Whole
Win for shares in the Bank of China IPO.

The order appointing the administrator, according to the SFC, is
an interim order and the matter will come back to the Court for
another hearing on Friday, June 9, 2006, at which time Whole Win
will have the opportunity to oppose the continuation of the
order and to present evidence and arguments.

The SFC further relates that it has already alerted the
Commercial Crime Bureau of the Police to the matter.

                          *     *     *

Whole Win Securities Ltd is a registered broker under the
Securities and Futures Commission of Hong Kong.  On May 26,
2006, the Securities and Futures Commission froze the broker's
assets after the regulator found a capital shortfall at the
brokerage.

The SFC found out that the brokerage, in fact, had been
operating its business almost entirely on financial resources
from bank borrowings secured by client securities collateral.

DUNLOP INDIA: Ruia Lays Down Expansion Plans
--------------------------------------------
Dunlop India's new promoter, the Ruia Group, has started putting
together expansion plans for the Company, Sify News reveals.

Ruia is planning to inject around INR350 crore into Dunlop
before the end of the year, Sify says.  The fresh capital
injection will be used for the full operation of Dunlop's
Ambattur plant by August and the Sahagunj facility late this
year.

After closing down in 2001, Dunlop re-opened its Ambattur plant
on April 10, 2006, and its Sahagunj factory on April 21 for
maintenance work, the Troubled Company Reporter - Asia Pacific
recounts.

According to Sify, Ruia has already invested around INR40 crore
in the Ambattur plant.  The workforce at the plant will be
reduced to 1,000 from the current level of 1,200.  This will
entail an expenditure of INR15-20 crore.  The Sahagunj plant's
workforce, on the other hand, will be trimmed to 1,200.  This
will cost the Company around INR42 crore.

With the expansion plans in place, Ruia expects Dunlop to start
making profits by 2007-08, Sify adds.

Ruia remained confident the two plants will start operations as
scheduled despite the ongoing dispute between Dunlop India's new
management and its workers at the Sahagunj plant in West Bengal,
Zee News relates.

As reported by the TCR-AP, 4,378 Dunlop workers were not pleased
with the Company's partial payment of INR30,000 arrears at the
Sahagunj plant.  The workers were expecting a paycheck of
INR5,000, but were greeted with a pay-out ranging between
INR3,000 and INR4,500 on the basis of the payment being pro-
rated to their attendance.  The workers claimed that the new
management was paying them much less than what was agreed on.

The Ruia management had already approached the labor
commissioner to sort out the arrear payment crisis, which has
already hampered the complete reopening of the Shahgunj factory,
the TCR-AP said.

Ruia scheduled another tripatrite meeting for June 5, 2006,
after a meeting on May 29 failed to settle the labor issue.

                     About Dunlop India

Headquartered in Kolkota, India, Dunlop India Limited is
involved principally in manufacturing and distributing
automotive tires and tubes.  The firm's other activities include
manufacturing high-pressure hoses, steelcord belting and
vibration isolators.  The company had reported profit until
March 1997.  In January 1998, the Board of Directors decided
that the Company had become sick due to the necessity of
reversing the earlier decision for sale of some real estate
property of the company through a subsidiary, Dunlop Investment
Limited.  This decision required a reversal of corresponding
entry of INR1,700 million and its reflection in the accounts of
the financial year 1997-98.  After taking this into account, the
Board of Directors decided to refer the Company to Board of
Industrial and Financial Reconstruction and abruptly announced
suspension of Dunlop's operations in both Sahagunj and Ambattur
in February 1998.  The Ministry for Law, Justice and Company
Affairs had also come to the conclusion after inspection of the
Books of Accounts of Dunlop India that there were serious
irregularities and had moved the Company Law Board for
ppointment of Government Directors.  In January 2006, the Ruia
Group took over the Company and voted to reopen its plants.  
Both the Sahagunj and Ambattur plants were reopened in April
2006.


ICHALKARANJI JIVESHWAR: RBI Cancels License Due to Insolvency
-------------------------------------------------------------
The Reserve Bank of India, on May 31, 2006, ordered the
cancellation of Ichalkaranji Jiveshwar Sahakari Bank Ltd's
license after examining all options for the bank's revival.

Subsequent to the cancellation of license, RBI ordered the
Registrar of Co-operative Societies to wind up Ichalkaranji
Jiveshwar and appoint a liquidator.

RBI's decision came after determining that the Bank has ceased
to be solvent and has already caused inconvenience to its
depositors due to mismanagement of the Bank's affairs.

According to RBI, the Bank's financial statements as of
March 31, 2005, revealed that the bank's financial position was
unsatisfactory.  Its deposits were eroded as realizable value of
paid-up capital and reserves were in the negative.  

RBI had issued a notice to the bank on September 2, 2005, asking
it to show cause as to why the license granted to it to conduct
banking business should not be cancelled.  As the Bank did not
have a viable plan of action for its revival and the chances of
its revival were remote, RBI cancelled the Bank's license in the
interest of its depositors.

With the cancellation of its license and commencement of
liquidation proceedings, the process of paying the Bank's
depositors was set in motion subject to the terms and conditions
of the Deposit Insurance Scheme.

NATIONAL TEXTILE: Seeks New Joint Venture Model for Revival
-----------------------------------------------------------
National Textile Corporation is stepping up efforts to attract
joint venture partners for the revival of its 29 mills, The
Indian Express reports.

Even after its attempt to tie up with private players failed to
take off, the state firm insisted to keep its joint venture
plan.  In fact, it has already invited technical consulting
agencies to develop a new model for the JVs.

According to the report, National Textile expects to have a new
model in place by the end of June.

National Textile Chairman and Managing Director K. Ramachandran
Pillai told The Indian Express that the previous model failed to
evoke an encouraging response from the industry because of the
high annual rent, which was fixed at 5% of the value of the
total land.

The standing committee on labor has earlier suggested to look at
other methods for the revival of the textile firm.  However, the
textile ministry rejected such proposals, saying that National
Textile will benefit more on joint ventures.

"In the end National Textile will only have 22 mills with it and
we do not want a large enterprise as managing it becomes a
problem.  For a (public sector undertaking) which seeks to
achieve a turnaround it is important to keep its size under
manageable limits," a senior ministry official said.

             About National Textile Corporation

Headquartered in New Delhi, India, National Textile Corporation
Ltd -- http://texmin.nic.in/-- is the single largest textile  
central public sector enterprise under Ministry of Textiles
managing 52 textile mills through its nine subsidiary companies
spread all over India.  The strength of the group is around
22000 employees.  The annual turnover of the Company in the year
2004-05 was approximately INR638 crores.  In 2002, the Board for
Industrial and Financial Reconstruction approved the revival of
53 viable mills and closure of 66 unviable mills.  National
Textile is in the process of a major restructuring.  A new
corporate plan is under formulation for repositioning of the
organization by merging all its nine subsidiaries into one
holding company.


SILVERLINE TECHNOLOGIES: Bags North American Software Contract
--------------------------------------------------------------
Silverline Technologies Ltd has won a multi-year contract to
reengineer and maintain a service management software from an
unnamed North American firm.

Under the terms of the agreement, Silverline will transition the
IT Infrastructure Library-based software to its development
center in Mumbai.  The scope of the initiative is to reengineer
the product to the new Microsoft platforms and customize it for
other markets other than North America.

Over the next six months, the Company is to discuss the
reengineering the software for specific business vertical
markets.

Both parties agreed to promote the sale, integration and support
of the product to new clients in markets currently not
addressed.  These include Asia, the Middle East and Europe.
As part of this plan, the Company will also set up a technical
support center. Initially, this center will support the clients
outside of North America followed by supporting the company's
current clients in North America.

             About Silverline Technologies Limited

Mumbai-based Silverline Technologies Limited provides a
comprehensive set of eBusiness consulting and IT services
including strategic consulting, creative design, technology

The Company's problems began in 2001 when it suffered a decline
in profitability and increase in collection period resulting
from cash flow mismatches.  Subsequently, the Company closed
redundant facilities and trimmed payrolls as a result of the
slowing economy.   Aimed at leveraging its underutilized assets,
Silverline Technologies took up a restructuring exercise that
involves a proposal to hive off one or more of its undertakings
located in India.   The Company planned to sell, transfer, lease
or otherwise dispose of its Indian undertakings.  It also
proposed to raise additional resources either through debt or
equity and increase its authorized capital, accordingly.

------------------------------------------------
Indonesian rating agency PT Pefindo downgraded its ratings for
PT Newera Footwear Indonesia and its IDR31.5-billion Bond I/2003
to "idCCC" from "idBB+," indicating the Company's incapability
to fulfill the required sinking fund of IDR3.15 billion after
the 180-day grace period ended on May 21, 2006.

Newera Footwear missed to pay its sinking fund payment on
November 21, 2005, and has yet to settle with its bondholders
Bank NISP and Bank Yuda Bhakti as to date.  The trustee plans to
have a bondholders meeting soon to ask for the Company's
explanation on this matter.  So far, the Company has
consistently paid its bonds interest timely.

PT Newera Footwear Indonesia is a footwear distributor in
Indonesia covering daily footwear products including varieties
of sport and traveling shoes that are particularly offered to
middle to low-income people, from children to adults.  The
Company is a licensed holder of Newera brand, while its footwear

JAPAN AIRLINES: To Buy Fuel Directly from AOC to Cut Costs
----------------------------------------------------------
Japan Airlines Corp. has negotiated with oil exploration firm
AOC Holdings, Inc., to purchase aviation fuel straight from its
unit Fuji Oil Co., in order to reduce costs, Reuters News
relates.

According to the Nihon Keizai Business Daily, the Company also
plans to acquire a 1% stock in AOC Holdings for JPY2 billion.  
In the contract, which matures in March 2011, Japan Airlines
would buy 200,000 kiloliters of jet fuel this year at Fuji Oil's
refinery near the Haneda airport in Tokyo.  

Rising global oil prices have increased JAL's fuel costs by 31%
or JPY88 billion, since it was unable to implement a fuel
surcharge increase to recover losses.  The Company plans to post
an operating profit of JPY17 billion this year on the
elimination of non-profit routes and fleet downsizing.

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 needs to refinance a JPY100 billion
debt in order to graduate from rehabilitation by its March 2007
deadline.

                          *     *     *

The Troubled Company Reporter - Asia Pacific stated on May 12,
2006, that Japan Airlines posted a consolidated net loss of
JPY47.24 billion for the business year 2005 ended March 31,
2006, due to safety-related incidents and rising aviation fuel
costs to JPY88.2 billion, compared to an operating profit of
JPY56.15 billion in 2004.  A subsequent report by the TCR-AP on
May 16, 2006, stated that the number of domestic passengers fell
1.9% on operating difficulties, causing domestic ticket sales to
drop 2.2% to JPY659.9 billion.  Japan Airlines had also spent
JPY33 billion on retirement benefit changes, whereas currency
fluctuations adversely affected the Company and prompted JPY6
billion in losses.

For 2006, the Company hedged some 75% of its jet fuel needs to
cushion the impact of further fuel price increases.  


SANYO ELECTRIC: Foregoes Retirement Payments to Ex-Officials
------------------------------------------------------------
Sanyo Electric Co. Ltd. opted not to dole out retirement benefit
payments to nine former executives who have resigned or plan to
resign to take the blame for the Company's poor performance,
Crisscross News says.

The Troubled Company Reporter - Asia Pacific reported on
March 30, 2006, that former Sanyo Chairman Satoshi Iue and seven
board directors resigned from their positions to assume
responsibility for the Company's consolidated net loss of
JPY205.66 billion in fiscal 2005, which is higher than its 2004
JPY171.54-billion loss.  A Sanyo auditor is also slated to
resign at the Company's upcoming shareholder meeting next month,
along with corporate counselors and former Sanyo presidents
Sadao Kondo and Yukinori Kuwano.

According to the Japan Times, Sanyo Electric does not think its
shareholders would approve the Company handing out generous
retirement packages to the outgoing directors, given its
financial condition.

The Company reported these key figures in its latest financial
report:

                               As of               As of
                           March 31, 2006      March 31, 2005

Headquartered in Osaka, Japan, Sanyo Electric Company, Limited,
-- http://www.sanyo.com/-- is one of the world's leading makers    
of consumer electronics products.  On November 21, 2005, Moody's
Investors Service downgraded Sanyo's long-term ratings to Baa2  
from Baa1, while placing these ratings on review for possible  
further downgrade.

As reported by the TCR-AP on December 27, 2005, Sanyo Electric  
entered the Indian market with the formation of a joint venture  
firm with India's BPL Limited, called Sanyo BPL Private,  
Limited.  Another report on March 20, 2006, said that Standard &  
Poor's had retained the Company's 'BB' long-term corporate  
credit and 'BB+' long-term senior unsecured debt on CreditWatch  
with negative implications.

HYUNDAI MOTOR: Kia Overseas Rep's Petition for Chung's Release
--------------------------------------------------------------
Overseas dealers of Kia Motors Corp., an affiliate of Hyundai
Motor Co., filed a petition with the Seoul District Court on
May 31, 2006, requesting Hyundai Chairman Chung Mong-koo's
release, The Korea Times reports.

The Troubled Company Reporter - Asia Pacific reported on May 17,
2006, that Mr. Chung was indicted following charges of
embezzling about US$106 million since 2002 to create a slush
fund to bribe banks and government officials, as well as of
incurring about US$320 million in damages to Hyundai.

According to the Korea Times, Kia agents across 24 countries
contended that the probe into Hyundai over its involvement in
the slush fund scandal is hurting the sales and image of the
automobile brand.  Moreover, some 25,000 Kia officials in the
United States expressed concern over Mr. Chung's absence and
asked for an immediate resolution of the issue so that Hyundai
can grow further in the American market.

A subsequent TCR-AP report stated that the sales of Hyundai's
overseas branches have declined and most of it is believed to be
caused by the Chairman's indictment.

                      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.

Chairman Chung has been indicted early in May 2006 for fraud
charges.

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.

Kia Motor President Chung Eui-sun, the group chairman's son, is
currently under a travel ban.  Other affiliates are also feeling
the pinch.  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.

APEX EQUITY: Clocks MYR1.7-Million Profit in First Quarter
----------------------------------------------------------
Apex Equity Holdings Berhad, on May 30, 2006, filed with the
Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad its unaudited financial report
for the first quarter ended March 31, 2006.

The Group's results for the quarter ended March 31, 2006,
registered a lower pre-tax profit of MYR1.7 million as compared
to pre-tax profit of MYR3.8 million in the corresponding period
last year.  The lower pre-tax profit was mainly due to lower
brokerage generated during the period caused by cessation of
business contribution from JP Morgan which obtained a full
foreign broking license granted by Securities Commission.

The Group recorded a pre-tax profit of MYR1.7 million for the
current quarter as compared to pre-tax loss of MYR34.47 million
for the preceding quarter mainly due to lower provisions in the
current quarter.

There was no pending material litigation as at the date of issue
of the quarterly report, which in the opinion of the directors
would have a material adverse effect on the financial results of
the Group.

The Group registered basic earnings per share of 0.82 sen for
the quarter under review.  However, there was no dividend paid
during the financial period.

ARTWRIGHT HOLDINGS: Disposal of SAM Boosts Profits
--------------------------------------------------
Artwright Holdings, on May 29, 2006, filed with the Bursa
Malaysia Securities Berhad its third quarter financial report.

For the nine months ended March 31, 2006, the Group registered a
MYR26.3-million revenue and pretax profit of MYR3.5 million, as
compared with the MYR43-million revenue and MYR3.2-million
pretax profit in the corresponding period last year.

due to the disposal of shares of associate company, Steelcase
Artwright Manufacturing Sdn Bhd in previous quarter, which
resulted a gain of MYR3.579 million

million and pretax profit of MYR365,000 compared with MYR14.1
million revenue and MYR1.4 million pretax profit in the same
quarter last year.  The drop in revenue was resulted from the
process to build the new business model after the divestment of
associated company, SAM.

As compared to the preceding quarter, the Group recorded lower
revenue at MYR6.6 million, representing a decrease of 21%
compared with MYR8.408 million and pretax profit of MYR365,000

wipe out its debts.  The Company said that it will continue to

Headquartered in Selangor Darul Ehsan, Malaysia, CHG Industries
Berhad -- http://www.chg.com.my/-- is an investment holding  
company listed on the Main Board of the Kuala Lumpur Stock
Exchange, Malaysia.  It is the parent company of the CHG
Industries Group, whose principal activity is in the
manufacture, distribution and export of plywood, LVL (Laminated
Veneer Lumber) and other veneer products.  The Company's
financial problems started when it defaulted on loan facilities
in 1999.  CHG Industries, on June 3, 2004, entered into an
agreement with Linmax Group Sdn Bhd to undertake a corporate and
debt restructuring exercise, which involves a capital reduction,
the injection of fresh assets and a transfer of its listing
status.  The plywood and veneer product maker will be
transformed into a mechanical and engineering company through
the injection of the assets of Linmax Group Sdn Bhd.  CHG said
the restructuring via Linmax will enable its existing
shareholders to participate in Linmax, which has income-
generating assets, and keep the company listed on the local
bourse.  The proposed restructuring scheme had been expected to
be completed this year.  However, the Securities Commission on
April 6, 2006, rejected the Company's restructuring proposal
because the Proposals do not provide the appropriate benefits to
the shareholders of CHG.  On May 8, 2006, the Company submitted
an appeal to the Securities Commission with revisions to address
the issues raised by the regulator.  The revised Proposals are
now pending the approval of the Securities Commission and other
relevant authorities.


CHG INDUSTRIES: Faces Delisting Over Failure to File 2005 AAA
-------------------------------------------------------------
CHG Industries Berhad has failed to submit its Annual Audited
Accounts together with the auditor's and directors' reports for
the financial year ended December 31, 2005, to Bursa Malaysia
Securities Berhad for public release.  Pursuant to the Bourse's
Listing Requirements, the reports were due on April 30, 2006.

The Troubled Company Reporter - Asia Pacific recounts that the
Company's failure in issuing the AAA2005 was due to the
Securities Commission's rejection of the Company's proposed Debt
and Corporate Restructuring Scheme on April 6, 2006.  On May 8,
2006, the Company announced that CHG has submitted its appeal to
the Securities Commission with the incorporation of certain
proposed revisions to the original Proposals.  The Securities
Commission's rejection of the Scheme and the Appeal have thrown
into a state of uncertainty the basis upon which the AAA2005
should be prepared.  This uncertainty will only be removed once
the Securities Commission delivers its decision on the Appeal.  
The date and basis of the submission of the AAA2005 will
necessarily hinge on the outcome of the Appeal.

In the meantime, the Company is looking into the alternative
basis of preparing the Accounts, which if adopted will require
substantial work to be done in order to have the AAA2005
prepared on the said alternative basis.

The consequences of non-compliance of the requirements may
result in the Company being suspended and delisted by Bursa
Malaysia Securities.

the injection of the assets of Linmax Group Sdn Bhd.  CHG said
the restructuring via Linmax will enable its existing
shareholders to participate in Linmax, which has income-
generating assets, and keep the company listed on the local
bourse.  The proposed restructuring scheme had been expected to
be completed this year.  However, the Securities Commission on
April 6, 2006, rejected the Company's restructuring proposal
because the Proposals do not provide the appropriate benefits to
the shareholders of CHG.  On May 8, 2006, the Company submitted
an appeal to the Securities Commission with revisions to address
the issues raised by the regulator.  The revised Proposals are
now pending the approval of the Securities Commission and other
relevant authorities.

of MYR0.496 million.  The recorded profit for preceding
individual quarter is the result of a bad debt recovered during
the said period.

liquidity with MYR19,179,000 in current liabilities exceeding
current assets of MYR7,404, resulting in a net current deficit

Practice Note 17.

In this regard, Mulpha Land no longer fulfills any criteria
under the PN17 category.

reported, the Bourse, on October 26, 2005, denied the Company's
application to be taken from the PN17/2005 classification since
the Company has not achieved the level of business of operations
as stipulated under it.

Mulpha Land Berhad had requested to extend the time by which the
Company must achieve the level of business operations stipulated
under PN17/2005.  The Bourse has directed Mulpha Land to present
additional information to facilitate the processing of the
Extension Application.

PJI HOLDINGS: Lower Revenue and High Costs Drive Losses
-------------------------------------------------------
Bursa Malaysia Securities Berhad, on May 29, 2006, received PJI
Holdings Berhad's unaudited financial report for the third
quarter ended March 31, 2006.

For the quarter under review, the Group recorded a turnover of
MYR20.8 million and loss before tax of MYR9.7 million as
compared to turnover of MYR26.4 million and loss before tax of
MYR7.5 million for the corresponding quarter ended March 31,
2005.  The loss was mainly due to lower revenue achieved and
high material cost.

For the current year to date, the Group recorded a turnover of
MYR54.4 million and loss before tax of MYR18.3 million as
compared to turnover of MYR94.1 million and loss before tax of
MYR13.0 million of the same period last year.  T

The Group's loss before tax of MYR9.7 million represents a
further increase of MYR5.2 million from the loss before tax of
MYR4.5 million reported in previous quarter ended December 31,
2005. The increase in loss was mainly due to lower margin
achieved.

The Group incurred a basic loss per share of 2.41 sen for the
quarter under review.  There was no interim dividend recommended
for the period.

The directors are of the opinion that the Group is unlikely to
achieve a satisfactory performance for the current financial

                 Debt Default and Restructuring

An event of default occurred with respect to the Acesite's
payment of its US$15 million loan with the Singapore Branch of
the Industrial and Commercial Bank of China, which matured on
March 31, 1998.  On June 3, 2003, the loan was restructured by
ICBC, which stipulated six semi-annual installment payments of
principal and interest until April 2006.  In July 2004, the
Company's new management requested for a reprieve on loan
principal payments due for the period, which the Company
suggested to be placed at the end of the term of the Amended
Agreement.  The outstanding principal balance of the ICBC loan
as of March 31, 2006, is US$9.18 million.  Management is still
negotiating with ICBC for a rescheduling of payment on the
remaining principal balances.

                       Material Lawsuits

Acesite is party to a case that involves a PHP30.15 million
petition for the Bureau of Internal Revenue to refund Extended
Value Added Tax payments made from July 1996 to October 1997.  
Both the Court of Tax Appeals and then later the Court of
Appeals ruled in favor of Acesite, and ordered the BIR to refund
PHP30.05 million.  The case is presently with the Supreme Court
on further appeal by the BIR.

Acesite also has a PHP5.26 million petition for the City
Treasurer of Manila to refund local taxes payments made on
April 19, 2002.  The case is still pending with the Regional
Trial Court in Manila, Branch 15.

ATLAS CONSOLIDATED: Schedules Annual Meeting on July 31
-------------------------------------------------------
In a disclosure to the Philippine Stock Exchange, Atlas
Consolidated Mining and Development Corp. informs that it will
hold a special annual general meeting on July 31, 2006, at 3:00
p.m., at the Valle Verde Country Club, Oranbo, Pasig City.  The
Board fixed the record date at June 21, 2006, 12:00 p.m., when
the Company's stock and transfer books will be closed.  Only
stockholders of record as of that date based on the
stockholders' list to be submitted by the stock and transfer
agent, Stock Transfer Serivce, Inc., will be entitled to notice
of, and to vote at, the meeting.

                    About Atlas Consolidated

Headquartered in Mandaluyong City, Philippines, Atlas
Consolidated Mining and Development Corporation was established
through the merger of assets and equities of three Soriano-
controlled pre-war mines, the Masbate Consolidated Mining
Company, IXL Mining Company and the Antamok Goldfields Mining
Company.  The Company is engaged in mineral and metallic mining
and exploration that primarily produces copper concentrates and
gold with silver and pyrites as major by-products.  The
Company's copper mining operations are centered in Toledo City,
Cebu, where two open pit mines, two underground mines and
milling complexes (concentrators) are located.  The Cebu copper
mine ceased operations in 1994.  Activities after the shutdown
were limited to safeguarding and maintaining the property, plant
and equipment at the minesite.  The closure has brought huge
losses to the mining firm.

In January 2004, Atlas decided to rehabilitate the company and
its assets at the earliest possible time since copper and nickel
prices have recovered.

Recently, a feasibility study to reopen the Cebu mine was
completed and the Company is presently in negotiations to raise
the necessary finance to commence rehabilitation.  The study
concluded that the reopening of the Toledo mines was viable.
On February 23, 2006, the TCR-AP reported that Atlas signed an
agreement with Crescent Asian Special Opportunities Portfolio,
which would buy part of the Company's debts convertible into
stock, and would invest PHP1.69 billion into Carmen Copper
Corporation in exchange for a 34% stake.

For now, the Company said that it will continue, through its
debts-for-equity swap agreement with Alakor Corporation, to
reduce its liabilities and debts to manageable levels.  It also
intends to rationalize its asset portfolio, including a possible
sale of obsolete and unproductive assets.

According to a TCR-AP report on June 1, 2006, Atlas Consolidated
posted a PHP85.45 million consolidated net income for 2005
against a PHP322.89 million net loss in 2004, due to the
disposal of its construction unit.  For the year ending Dec. 31,
2005, the Company reported a capital deficiency of PHP3.035
billion.  Moreover the Company's auditor, Jaime F. Del Rosario,
of Sycip Gorres Velayo, has raised substantial doubt on the
Company's ability to continue as a going concern.


BENGUET CORPORATION: PSE Suspends Shares Trading
------------------------------------------------
The Philippine Stock Exchange has suspended the trading of
shares in Benguet Corporation due to the Company's failure to
submit its 2005 annual report pursuant to the PSE's directive,
which had a non-extendable grace period up to May 31, 2006.

Trading in the Company's shares was suspended effective
June 1, 2006.

                    About Benguet Corporation

Benguet Corporation -- http://www.benguetcorp.com/-- was   
organized to primarily engage in gold mining.  It expanded into
chromite and copper production, and then into the fields of
general engineering and industrial construction, agriculture,
shipping, banking and finance, real estate and forestry-based
ventures.

Today, after restructuring its diversified operations and
consolidating its resources following the turbulent financial
climate of the 90s, the Company has transformed itself into a
total natural resource development and services Company.
Alongside its core business of mining and mineral exploration,
the Company and its subsidiaries are actively engaged in water
projects, real estate development, forest management and eco-
tourism, while maintaining interests in allied industries such
as steel casting, trucking and warehousing, trading, engineering
and construction services.

On June 11, 1999, Benguet Corporation reached an agreement with
its creditor-banks on the repayment of its outstanding loans.  A
Term Sheet was signed extending the maturity of your Company's
loan up to June 30, 2000, with automatic renewal every
anniversary up to the year 2002, upon payment of annual
interest.  The Company was able to settle major portions of the
interest due on June 30, 2000, through a combination of cash and
Tax Credit Certificates.  For June 30, 2001, and June 30, 2002,
the Company wrote the banks and offered to settle the annual
interest due on 2001 and 2002.  In its letter to the banks dated
October 3, 2002, the Company requested for additional time to
settle its obligations pending its formal entry into the Baguio
Bulk Water Project.

As of March 31, 2006, loans subject to the repayment plan are
equal to PHP1.7 billion.

In a financial report for the quarter ended March 31, 2006, the
Company posted PHP310.66 million in current assets available to
pay PHP3.865 billion in current liabilities coming due within
the next 12 months.  Benguet Corp's total assets for the period
is PHP3.213 billion, compared to total liabilities of PHP4.909
billion, resulting to the PHP1.695 billion capital deficiency.


LAFAYETTE MINING: Rapu-Rapu Project Still Viable
------------------------------------------------
The mining project of Lafayette Philippines, Inc., is still
viable despite the amount spent to rehabilitate the project and
fines slapped on it for two cyanide spills last year, the Manila
Times reveals.

In an interview with Agence-France Presse, Rapu-Rapu Minerals
Inc.'s environmental management head Carmelita Pacis said that
LPI had invested around PHP400 million for the mine's
rehabilitation, plus record fines.  She addressed a public forum
of students and environmentalist groups and said that they are
still viable as a project, adding that they had complied with 21
remedial conditions set by the Department of Environment &
Natural Resources for the mine's reopening after it was shut
down in 2005.  

The Troubled Company Reporter - Asia Pacific reported on
Nov. 14, 2005, that Lafayette Philippines had suspended its
operations due to the spill incidents from its gold, copper and
zinc mine in Rapu-Rapu, Albay, which polluted a nearby river.  
The Department of Environment and Natural Resources issued a
cease-and-desist order on the Company, prohibiting it from
discharging wastewater into the environment.  The Government
then created the Rapu-Rapu Fact Finding Commission in March 2006
to investigate the spills and "evaluate all the facts and
circumstances surrounding the alleged threat to people's health
and environmental safety" and to submit a report before the mine
can be opened again.

Lafayette Philippines is ready to resume operations, and its
foreign investors are concerned about the delay as the RRFFC
report recommended the mine's permanent closure for the alleged
pollution of nearby waters, and said that the independent
findings of the different groups needed further study to relate
the immediate effects of the tailings incidents.  The local
governments of Albay, where the Rapu-Rapu mine is located, and
nearby Sorsogon have urged that the Company be allowed to
perform a test-run on its newly rehabilitated mine, to determine
whether its repairs and adjustments are up to DENR standards.

                          *     *     *

Lafayette Mining Philippines, Incorporated, is a subsidiary of
Australian firm Lafayette Mining, Incorporated --
http://www.lafayettemining.com/-- which has been listed on the    
Australian Stock Exchange since August 1997.  Lafayette
Philippines is currently developing a polymetallic project
involving copper, gold, zinc and silver on the Island of Rapu-
Rapu in the Philippines.

The Department of Environment and Natural Resources' former
secretary, Mike Defensor, ordered the closing of Lafayette
Philippines in 2005 when the Company's mine tailings were
accidentally spilled into the Albay Gulf last October, killing
thousands of fish and destroying the livelihood of fishermen in
the area.  The Company was also fined PHP10.7 million for
violating the Clean Water Act and its environmental compliance
certificate.

EASYCALL INTERNATIONAL: Books Lower Profit for Year 2005-06
-----------------------------------------------------------
EasyCall International Limited disclosed that for the year ended
March 31, 2006, the Group recorded a net profit after tax of
SGD0.2 million against a restated net loss of SGD8.5 million
last financial year.

The results for the previous financial year had to be re-stated,
in accordance with the provisions of International Accounting
Standard 27, Consolidated and Separate Financial Statements and
International Financial Reporting Standard 5, Non-Current Assets
Held for Sale and Discontinued Operations, in respect of the
Group's accounting treatment of its investment in Computer Power
Group Pty Ltd.

The Group took the view last year that CPG should not be
consolidated in the Group's financial statements, given that
active steps were being taken to dispose of CPG.  However,
arising from more rule-based amendments in IFRS 5 and the
consequential amendments to IAS 27, which took effect from
January 1, 2005, the time period allowable for the disposal of
CPG was restricted to only 12 months from the date of
acquisition.  Upon the expiry of this 12-month period on May 30,
2005, as the Group had not been successful in disposing of CPG,
it had no alternative but to consolidate CPG with effect from
the acquisition date.

As a consequence of consolidating CPG, the Group's results last
year had to be restated to include net losses attributable to
CPG of SGD4.5 million and a goodwill write off relating to CPG
of SGD6.5 million.  This had the effect of adjusting last year's
reported net profit of SGD2.5 million) to a net loss of SGD8.5
million.

Following the administration and subsequent liquidation of CPG
in January 2006, CPG was deconsolidated, giving rise to a gain
of SGD13.2 million during the year ended March 31, 2006.  This
gain was partially offset by provisions amounting to SGD9.6
million in respect of loans advanced to CPG, bank guarantees
provided for CPG, legal and professional fees incurred in
connection with the legal claim against the vendors of CPG and
the net cost of investment in CPG.

A further SGD3.2 million in deferred asset was written off
during the year ended March 31, 2006.  This was in respect of
the unamortisized portion of the fee paid to Boustead Singapore
Limited in January 2003 for the establishment and continued
support of the Group's China education business.  The Group is
of the view that following the distribution in specie of a
substantial portion of Boustead's shares in the Company in March
2006, any future benefits attributable to this deferred asset
would no longer be justified.

The impact of CPG and other one-off items aside, the Group's
core education business in China continued to strengthen.  The
number of full time students grew from 5,300 to 5,900 in the new
academic year beginning September 2005, lifting total course fee
revenues to SGD12.2 million from SGD8.3 million) last year and
further improving operating margins.

Consolidated net tangible assets as of March 31, 2006, stood at
SGD17.2 million or equivalent 6.9 Singapore cents per share.

The Troubled Company Reporter - Asia Pacific recounts that in
anticipation of a financial results announcement in May 2006 for
EasyCall International Limited and its subsidiaries for the full
year ended March 31, 2006, the Group issued a profit warning.  
The Group expected  to report a loss for the period due mainly
to the impact of the liquidation of its subsidiary, Computer
Power Group Pty Ltd.

              About EasyCall International Limited

Headquartered in Singapore, EasyCall International Limited
-- http://www.easycall.com.sg/-- is a higher-learning education  
group that is listed on the Australian Stock Exchange and  
Singapore Exchange.  EasyCall is dedicated to the advancement,
establishment and provision of internationally recognized
higher-level education services and skills training programs.
EasyCall owns and operates the Tianjin University of Commerce
Boustead College.

The EasyCall Group was incorporated in Bermuda as Voicecall
Limited on February 27, 1985.  It commenced its operations in
Australia and engaged in the provision of a radio broadcast
network for the transmission of data and messages.  Voicecall
Communications and the Group's other Australian operations were
eventually sold off to Bell South Australia in September 1988.  
With an increasingly large presence outside of Australia, the
Group decided to shift its corporate headquarters to Singapore
in 1995.  In addition, the headquarters was registered as
EasyCall International Limited in order to capitalize on the
strong brand equity established by the EasyCall trade name for
paging operations in Asia.  In September 1999, the Group reached
a major landmark when it was listed on the Australian Stock  
Exchange.  

By early 2000, it was apparent that the client base for call
center and paging services in Asia was on the decline.  Since
then the Group's results was in and out of the red.  Given the
decreasing demand for its services, the Group began a
reorganization effort to simplify its structure, chart a new
strategic direction and facilitate its secondary listing on the  
Singapore Exchange.  In April 2001, the decision was made to
transform the Group's core business by discontinuing business
activities that were previously successful but irrelevant in the
current business climate.  The Singapore IDC of the Group was
wound up in August 2001 as part of a restructuring exercise to
reduce operating losses in the Group.  Its Philippine arm
undertook a capital restructuring in 2003 to address its capital
deficiency.  In January 2006, EasyCall withdrew its financial
support for its wholly owned subsidiary, Computer Power Group
Ltd, and appointed Ferrier Hodgson as administrator after
discovering that CPG's chance of turning around is bleak.   
EasyCall expected its results to again plunge into the red with
the negative impact of Computer Power's liquidation.

TOT PLC: Court Accepts Appeal to Overturn Ruling
------------------------------------------------
The Administrative Court has agreed to accept TOT Plc's petition
seeking to overturn an arbitration ruling earlier this year
directing the Company to pay billions of baht to True Corp. over
access charges, the Bangkok Post reports.

According to the Post, arbitrators have already agreed in
January that TOT should pay THB9.175 billion to True Corp. to
settle access-charge claims going back to 1990 up to 2002,
together with annual interest of 7.5%.

Moreover, the Post adds that TOT would face additional payments
to settle claims from 2002 to the present, based on a 50% split
of benefits gained by TOT for using True's networks.

Prinya Wisejsiri, TOT executive vice-president, told the Post
that there were five points to the petition, highlighting
possible conflicts of interest within the arbitration panel.  He
said that the arbitration chairman, Prasit Kovilaikul, was
biased against TOT because he was a board member of the
insurance firm Ayudhya Allianz CP Life, a joint venture
partially held by the CP Group, which was also a major
shareholder of True Corp.

Meanwhile, TOT claims that the concession agreement with True
states that in cases of dispute, each party must agree to the
calculation of damages for claims filed in arbitration.  But in
awarding the judgment to True, the arbitration panel failed to
clarify how it had assessed the award, Mr. Prasit said.

However, True Corp chief executive officer Supachai Chearavanont
earlier dismissed TOT's claims as unfounded.  Mr. Prasit had
clarified his role in April 2004 as an independent director of
Ayudhya Allianz, and both TOT and True had accepted his presence
on the committee.
