EVANS & TATE: Shares Placed in Trading Halt Pending ABD Ruling
--------------------------------------------------------------
At Evans & Tate Limited's request, shares in the Company were
placed in a trading halt from June 2, 2006, until the start of
trading to June 6, or until an announcement is made to the
Australian Stock Exchange, the Australian Associated Press
reports.

The Australian relates that the trading halt came after shares
in E&T rose more than 70% on expectation of a favorable court
ruling in the winemaker's case with Australian Beverage
Distributors.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter - Asia Pacific on
May 26, 2006, ABD launched wind-up proceedings against Evans &
Tate and its subsidiary, Evans & Tate Premium Wines Pty Ltd.,
with the New South Wales Supreme Court on May 24, asserting that
Evans & Tate was insolvent and had been unable to pay its debts
as and when they fell due.  ABD contended that Evans & Tate
should be wound up "to prevent the further dissipation in the
value of assets available to unsecured creditors."

Furthermore, ABD sought a declaration from the Supreme Court
that the notice of meeting of holders of Evans & Tate's
unsecured convertible notes, scheduled for June 14, 2006, is
false and misleading.

Evans & Tate managing director Martin Johnson, The Advertiser
says, sent a letter to the ASX saying that the Company had
requested the halt because it had learned that a judgment on the
wind-up application was expected to be delivered verbally in the
NSW Supreme Court on June 5, 2006.

The Australian notes that the earlier rumors of a verbal
judgment being handed down in Evans & Tate's favor were
responsible for the surge in the winemaker's share price, as
investors considered it unlikely that a decision to wind up a
public company would be made without a written judgment.

Shares in Evans & Tate rose from 7 cents to 12 cents before the
trading halt, BusinessNews points out.

The TCR-AP recounts that Evans & Tate and ABD have been involved
in a commercial dispute for about two years in the NSW District
Court in Newcastle.  The dispute relates to the payment for more
than AU$240,000 of wine that ABD received from Cranswick Premium
Wines before Evans & Tate took over Cranswick three years ago.  

Evans & Tate claimed that it was, in turn, owed AU$216,000 by
ABD, and decided to fight the wind-up process in the Newcastle
District Court in NSW.

In an update, the Sydney Morning Herald says that the decision
on the ABD case has been delayed until today, June 6, 2006.

                       About Evans & Tate

Headquartered in Wembley, Western Australia, Evans & Tate
Limited -- http://www.etw.com.au/-- is an Australian wine  
company listed on the Australian Stock Exchange.  The primary
businesses of the Evans & Tate Wine Group are the production,
marketing and distribution of a number of branded, exclusive
labeled and unbranded wines; contract winemaking; wine trading;
viticultural services; and wine tourism through its Visitor
Centers.    

In June 2005, rumors began brewing that the wine maker was
carrying total liabilities of AU$127.5 million, of which
AU$102.5 million was interest-bearing debt.  A few days later,
Evans & Tate admitted that it had been coordinating with
insolvency firm KordaMentha on the recommendation of its major
creditor, ANZ Banking Group Limited.  It had appointed
KordaMentha's 333 Performance Management "to improve its
forecasting, planning and business efficiencies."  Evans & Tate
also admitted that it was cash flow negative and had sought an
AU$8.5-million capital injection from ANZ Bank.  The firm
further said that it would cut the value of its wine inventories
by AU$8 million to AU$10 million, offload stock at a discount,
and cut the carrying value of certain wineries.  In July 2005,
Evans & Tate has secured an additional AU$10 million in short-
term working capital from ANZ.  In January 2006, Evans & Tate
announced that it was selling off its Griffith Winery to boost
capital, but not without borrowing another AU$12 million.  The
Company is still seeking for buyers.  In February 2006, Evans &
Tate shed 20 jobs as part of a restructure that it said was
expected to result in cost savings of about AU$2.5 million a
year.

NATIONAL AUSTRALIA: Ditches Refund Plans on Overcharging Scandal
----------------------------------------------------------------
More than a year after it confessed to over-charging on clients'
accounts, National Australia Bank said that it has abandoned
efforts to contact the remaining customers who have not yet
received refunds, The Sydney Morning Herals reports.

The Sydney Herald recounts that NAB, in May 2005, confessed to
overcharging on packaged loans when it introduced a range of
"Choice" packages, which allowed customers to bundle loans and
accounts together and pay one annual fee.  The error occurred
when more than one loan was taken out under the package and the
annual fee was charged more than once.

NAB spokesman Geoff Lynch notes that 96,000 customers had
already received average refunds of AU$625.

However, Jessica Irvine, of the Sydney Herald, relates that
around 17,000 NAB clients are still owed a total of AU$10
million on account of the overcharging, which dates back to
1994.  Ms. Irvine says that with NAB aborting its refund plan,
other customers who closed their accounts prior to 2000 and for
which records are incomplete may never see their money returned.

The Sydney Herald cites customer groups as asserting that the
bank did not act quickly enough to identify and compensate its
customers.

According to the report, NAB has run just two lots of newspaper
advertisements to alert customers with closed accounts about the
overcharging since the errors were revealed last year.  The last
ad, which ran for one day last month, failed to unearth a single
customer, the Sydney Herald notes.

Mr. Lynch confirmed that the bank has no plans to run more
campaigns about the overcharging, admitting that this could mean
that some unsuspecting customers would never get a refund.

Mr. Lynch told the Sydney Herald that there has been a huge
volume to go through and that some cases have been complicated
with difficulties in tracking through all of the customers
attached to all of the accounts.

                        *     *     *  

National Australia Bank is undertaking a three-year revival
program after a foreign exchange trading scandal in 2004, which
cost it AU$326 million, and several profit downgrades in 2005
that hammered its share price.  As of February 2006, NAB said
that it was moving ahead and that planning for its post-recovery
phase was under way.

TELSTRA CORPORATION: ACT Rejects Proposed AU$9 Access Charge
------------------------------------------------------------
The Australian Competition Tribunal has affirmed the Australian
Competition and Consumer Commission's rejection of Telstra
Corporation's proposed AU$9 monthly charge for its line sharing
service, ITWire reports.

Stuart Corner, of ITWire, explains that the LSS is used by
service providers to supply broadband to their customers on a
Telstra phone line simultaneous with that line being used to
provide a standard telephone service.

In a move to limit rivals' access to its phone lines, Telstra
had proposed to charge its competitors AU$9 per line on a
monthly basis.  However, ITWire relates, the plan was rejected
by the ACCC in December 2005.  Telstra appealed the ACCC's
decision to the ACT in January 2006.

Following the ACT's decision, the price for the LSS will now be
determined by agreement between Telstra and individual
customers, and where agreement is unable to be reached, by the
ACCC following notification of an access dispute.

           ACCC's Network Upgrade Faces ACCC Rejection

The Age recounts that Telstra plans to spend money on a high-
speed fibre-to-the-node broadband network in the five biggest
capital cities in Australia.  The telco had indicated that it
will only develop its fibre-to-the-node network if the ACCC
allows it to charge commercial rates to rivals that want to use
the network.

According to The Age, protracted talks over Telstra's AU$3.1
billion broadband network upgrade may come to nothing, after the
ACCC flagged its inclination to reject the telco's proposal to
limit competitors' access.

The Age cites the ACCC's commissioner for telecommunications, Ed
Willett, as saying that Telstra's upgraded broadband network was
not essential for consumers because broadband speeds as high as
24 megabits a second were available from telcos such as Optus
and iiNet, which had installed special broadband equipment in
telephone exchanges.

Mr. Willett said that the ACCC would not approve restrictive
conditions on Telstra's proposed network.  He said that any in
order for any network proposal by Telstra to be successful, the
telco must promise better offerings for consumers than the
likely alternative.

Telstra reiterated its assertion that it will not develop the
fibre-to-the-node network if the ACCC will not allow them
regulatory exemption.  The telco said that it cannot afford to
build a AU$3.1 billion fibre-to-the-node network "if there is no
investment certainty for that massive amount of shareholders'
savings."

The Troubled Company Reporter - Asia Pacific reported on May 9,
2006, that the sale of the Government's remaining 51.8% stake in
Telstra is effectively on hold until the telco's concerns over
regulations applying to its proposed fibre-to-the-node broadband
network are ironed out.

                         About Telstra

Headquartered at Melbourne, in Victoria, Australia, Telstra
Corporation -- http://www.telstra.com.au/-- is an Australian  
telecommunications and information services company.  Telstra
offers a full range of services and compete in all
telecommunications markets throughout Australia, providing more
than 10.3 million Australian fixed line and more than 6.5  
million mobile services.  In September 2005, Telstra suffered an
earnings downgrade and share price fall.  The Company announced
that its earnings before interest and tax in 2005/06 are  
expected to decline by 7-10% compared to that of 2004/05 as a
result of accelerating declines in public switched telephone
network revenues and softening growth in the mobiles market due
to aggressive pricing.  Also, the political furor surrounding
Telstra has strengthened the Government's resolve to dispose of
its remaining 51% majority interest in the Company.  The
Australian Securities and Investment Commission then commenced
an investigation into Telstra in connection with the Company's
compliance with its disclosure obligations following the
earnings downgrade.  This led to a number of Telstra
shareholders and class action claimants showing anger and dismay
over the telco's behavior.  In November 2005, after a four-month
review, Telstra Chief Executive Officer Sol Trujillo announced a
major restructure of the Company, one which involves the loss of
thousands of jobs over the next five years and a massive
investment in new networks which will help deliver bigger profit
margins.

WESTPOINT GROUP: ASIC Bars Promoter from Leaving Australia
----------------------------------------------------------
The Australian Securities and Investment Commission sought and
obtained an order from the Supreme Court of New South Wales
freezing the assets of a Westpoint financial promoter and
preventing him from leaving Australia, ABC News Online reports.

According to The Australian, Neil Austin Burnard, the sole
director of Palentia Pty Ltd -- formerly known as Kebbel Pty Ltd
-- and who reportedly promoted Westpoint schemes to investors,
was forced to return to Sydney on June 4, 2006, after
authorities blocked his entry into the United States.  

Richard Beck, the founder of Kebbel, was a Westpoint director.

The urgent order against Mr. Burnard was sought after ASIC was
advised that he was planning to leave Australia and reside in
the U.S.  Mr. Burnard had already boarded a Qantas flight bound
for Los Angeles when the order was issued by the Court.  The
Sydney Morning Herald says that upon Mr. Burnard's arrival at
the U.S., American immigration officials loaded him back on to
the same Qantas aircraft for a flight back to Australia.

ASIC believes that Mr. Burnard, through Palentia, helped raise
more than AU$100 million for Westpoint from small investors,
mainly in NSW and Queensland.  Palentia earned AU$6.5 million in
commissions in the process, ASIC said.  However, Palentia had
recently stopped trading and abandoned its registered office.
ASIC believes the company may be insolvent.

As stated in the press reports, Mr. Burnard was forced to
surrender his passport and unused airline tickets.  Moreover,
the Supreme Court froze his personal assets, as well as that of
Palentia and another related company, Tenala.

The Court allowed Mr. Burnard AU$2,000 a week for living costs
and legal costs of up to AU$20,000.

He is expected to appear in the New South Wales Supreme Court on
June 13, 2006, over his involvement with Westpoint.

                     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.

DUNLOP INDIA: New Workers List Infuriates Unions
------------------------------------------------
On June 2, 2006, members of the Centre of Indian Trade Unions
blocked 100 workers from joining maintenance work at Dunlop
India Limited's Sahagunj plant, The Telegraph reveals.

The unionists were angered when the Ruia management put up a
fresh list of additional 100 workers for maintenance work prior
to the resumption of commercial production in the plant without
consulting them, the report says.

CITU told The Telegraph that an April 9, 2006, agreement stated
that the Dunlop management had to discuss with the unions the
names of the workers to be offered early retirement schemes and
those to be allowed to resume work.

Indian National Trade Union Congress-affiliated Dunlop Rubber
Factory Employees' Union also joined the protest, Zee News
relates.  Both the unions held a gate meeting urging the workers
not to report for duty.

As reported by the Troubled Company Reporter - Asia Pacific,
similar protests were lodged by the Company's CITU and INTUC
unions on May 15, 2006, when the management put up a list of 42
workers for the same purpose.

The ongoing dispute between Dunlop India's new management and
its workers has further delayed commercial production at the
Company.  The clash was over payment of arrears to workers of
the Sahagunj facility, which was closed in August 2001 and
reopened in April this year.

                       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
appointment 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.

TUNGABHADRA STEEL: Proposed Revival Gets Cabinet's Nod
------------------------------------------------------
The Union Cabinet, on June 2, 2006, gave its in-principle
approval for the revival of Tungabhadra Steel Products Ltd,
Hindu Business Line relates.

According to the plan, Tungabhadra Steel will be rehabilitated
through a joint venture with a strategic private sector partner
74% shareholding and management control, Business Line says.  
The Government is also considering a disinvestment in favor of
private parties.

As Tungabhadra Steel is a state-owned firm, an enabling
legislation will be brought forth to cover such possibilities in
line with the advice of the Law Ministry.

Information and Broadcasting Minister Priya Ranjan Dasmunsi told
Business Line that the Company will be shut down in case the
joint venture attempt will not materialize.

Aside from the in-principle approval, the Cabinet also
recommended a voluntary retirement scheme for Tungabhadra
Steel's workers to make the Company more acceptable to the
prospective joint venture partner with a lower workforce.

              About Tungabhadra Steel Products Ltd

Tungabhadra Steel Products Ltd, a public sector enterprise
established in 1960, is considered to be a successor of the now
defunct Workshops and Machinery Division of the Tungabhadra
Project.  It was set up to undertake the manufacture of gates
and hoists required for spillways, sluices, and canal gages of
the dam.

The company was self-dependent and earning profits, though
marginal until 2004 when its overall performance declined
because of bad management.  Subsequently, the Company's account
with the State Bank of India had become irregular.  As a result,
the bank did not allow the Company it operate facilities such as
the letter of credit and bank guarantees.  It also refused to
give the Company a solvency certificate, which is essential for
securing orders through bids.

A revival proposal was forwarded to the Union Government.  The
management was also thinking of referring the company to the
Board for Industrial and Financial Reconstruction.

SOMPO JAPAN: President Resigns After Business Suspension
--------------------------------------------------------
Sompo Japan Insurance, Inc.'s president, Hiroshi Hirano,
resigned on June 2, 2006, to take responsibility for a
suspension order issued by the Financial Services Agency on the
illegal practices by its employees, Crisscross News relates.

According to the Company, its Board of Directors approved a
proposal to remove Mr. Hirano from his position and duties, and
discontinue a plan to make him as Company chairman at their
upcoming annual meeting on June 28, 2006.

TMC News, citing Kyodo News, reports that the Board also
withdrew a previous decision to make three vice-presidents as
presidents of Sompo's affiliate firms.  The three executives
also decided to step down after the Company was publicly
criticized following the suspension order.  Mr. Hirano and the
three vice-presidents will not be allowed to hold any position
in the Sompo Japan group, and will not receive retirement
benefits until the Company wins back public trust.

                          *     *     *

Sompo Japan Insurance, Inc. --
http://www.sompo-japan.co.jp/english/-- was formed by the  
merger of The Yasuda Fire and Marine Insurance Company with
Nissan Fire & Marine Insurance Co. Limited, in July 2002.  The
Company provides non-life insurances including voluntary
automobile insurance, fire insurance, marine insurance, personal
accident insurance and compulsory automobile liability
insurance, as well as life insurance through its stake in former
CIGNA subsidiary Sompo Japan Himawari Life.  It also provides
reinsurance, asset management, and venture capital.

The Troubled Company Reporter - Asia Pacific reported on May 29,
2006, that Japan's Financial Services Agency ordered the partial
suspension of Sompo Japan Insurance, Inc.'s businesses on May
25, 2006, as punishment for unlawful sales practices, according
to Crisscross News.

In its investigations, the FSA discovered that Sompo Japan did
not distribute legitimate payouts in 1,128 cases totaling JPY120
million.  The Company admitted it had rejected 27,273 claims
amounting to JPY900 million.

During the two-week suspension, Sompo is banned from selling and
advertising its non-life insurance policies, as well as life
insurance products offered through its partner firms.  For one
month from June 12, 2006, the Company will not be able to sell
life insurance products, and for three months from May 26, 2006,
the Japanese Government will not issue licenses for Sompo to
sell new insurance products, and will prohibit the Company from
putting up new offices outside Japan.

SSANGYONG MOTOR: Union Opposes SUV Manufacture in China
-------------------------------------------------------
Ssangyong Motor Company and its controlling shareholder,
Shanghai Automotive Industry Corp of China, have signed a
contract last week allowing Shanghai Automotive to manufacture
Ssangyong's Kyron sport utility vehicles in China, Asia Times
says.

However, according to the report, Ssangyong's labor unions
oppose the management's move, expressing fears over the transfer
of technology to Shanghai Automotive -- which holds a 48.9%
stake in Ssangyong.

Oh Seok-kyu, Ssangyong labor union's chief, told Asia Times that
the union will do any means necessary to thwart the management's
plan.

The Troubled Company Reporter - Asia Pacific reported on
March 22, 2006, that the Chinese Government first rejected
Ssangyong's proposal of making SUVs in China due to Beijing's
fears of over-investment in car plants and its efforts to stop
any more car plants from being built.

Headquartered in Kyonggi, South Korea, Ssangyong Motor Company   
Ltd. -- http://www.smotor.com/-- manufactures and assembles    
motor vehicle bodies on purchased basis such as jeep style cars  
under the brand names of 'Korando' and 'Musso', minibuses under  
the brand name of 'Istana', special purpose cars including  
cement mixers, trailers, fire-trucks as well as auto parts.  The  
Company implemented a five-year debt workout program in 1999  
after Ssangyong was separated from Daewoo Group, which was  
dissolved under huge debt.

DATUK KERAMAT: Fails to File First Quarter Report
-------------------------------------------------
Datuk Keramat Holdings Berhad has not issued its First Quarterly
Report ended March 31, 2006, which was due on May 31, 2006.

The Company explained that its failure to submit its First

the proposed restructuring scheme.

The consequences of non-compliance of the requirement under

result in the Company being suspended or delisted by Bursa
Malaysia Securities Berhad.

December 31, 2004, Quarterly Reports for the periods ended
March 31, 2005, June 30, 2005, and September 30, 2005, by the

prepared an initial scheme for the purposes of a debt
restructuring scheme under Section 176(10) of the Companies Act,

GULA PERAK: Net Current Deficit Hits MYR51.7 Million as of March
----------------------------------------------------------------
Gula Perak Berhad, on May 31, 2006, filed with Bursa Malaysia
Securities Berhad its financial report for the fourth quarter
ended March 31, 2006.

The Group's profit before tax for the quarter under review was
R1YR.108 million compared to profit before tax of MYR2.265
million in the same period of the previous year.

Turnover for this quarter increased by approximately MYR402,000
primarily due to increase in hotel revenue in the current
quarter.  The profit before tax of MYR1.515 million in the
current quarter decreased by approximately MYR1.761 million,
mainly due to the finance costs waived in the last quarter.

But despite the positive earnings, the Company's March 31, 2006,
balance sheet revealed strained liquidity with MYR153,686,000 in
current liabilities exceeding current assets of MYR101,970,000.

2001, faced delays.  Given the sluggish property market and the
delay in the completion of the Group's debt restructuring
exercise, its property division has been almost at a standstill
in the past two years.  Upon completion of the debt
restructuring, the Company's management plans to launch its
industrial and mixed developments in Batang Berjuntai, Kampung
Jawa, Setapak and Cheras over the next few years.  

The Company's Board does not expect to see any significant
improvement in Gula Perak's financial profile upon the
completion of its debt restructuring exercise.  Based on the
analysis of its cash flow, external funds will be required to
ensure the timely repayment of Gula Perak's future interest and
principal repayments should the Group fail to secure sufficient
sales from its property development activities.  In light of the
"lackluster" property market, the Group may not generate
sufficient demand for its properties to adequately cover the
infrastructure cost in the initial years.  As expected, the
Group had encountered difficulties in meeting its financial
obligations during the past years.  Some of these obligations
have subsequently been restructured with more favorable terms.

MYCOM BERHAD: Third Quarter Unveils Poor Results
------------------------------------------------
Mycom Berhad has, on May 31, 2006, submitted its financial
report for the third quarter ended March 31, 2006, to the Bursa
Malaysia Securities Berhad.

For the nine months ended March 31, 2006, the Company posted a
MYR18.12 million revenue, lower by approximately 35% as compared
to the MYR27.42 million revenue in the same period last year.  
The variances were mainly due to lower revenue generated by the
manufacturing division.  

The loss before tax was reduced to MYR18.34 million from last
year's MYR51.5 million due to the discontinuation of equity
accounting for the results of an associated company.

The loss before tax for the quarter ended March 31, 2006, has
increased by MYR1.4 million or 8% over the immediate preceding
quarter ended December 31, 2005.  This was mainly due to the
lower contribution from the property division.

The Company registered a basic loss per share of MYR4.67 sen for
the quarter under review.  There was no dividend declared or
recommended for the current financial period.

As of March 31, 2006, the Company's balance sheet showed poor
liquidity with MYR56,129,000 in current assets available to pay
current liabilities of MYR1,302,071,000 coming due within the
next 12 months.

Pending completion of the Restructuring Scheme, the Group's
results are not expected to register any material improvement
for the financial year ending June 30, 2006.

North Borneo Corporation Berhad's financial report for the first
quarter ended March 31, 2006.

Headquartered in Sabah, Malaysia, The North Borneo Corporation
Berhad engages in the management of forest management unit and
investment holding.  The Group operates in Malaysia and Bermuda.  
Due to its continuous losses, the Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange
placed the Company under the Practice Note 4/2001 category in
April 2001 and was ordered to start regularizing its financial
condition.

On April 28, 2005, the Securities Commission has agreed to North
Borneo's proposal to dispose of its business as part of the
Company's efforts to regularize its finances and restructure its
debts.  The Plan, however, met objections from creditors.  On
March 6, 2006, two scheme creditors of North Borneo Corp. --
Sabah Development Bank and Prokhas Sdn Bhd -- withdrew their
support of the Company's proposed debt restructuring, saying
that they are no longer agreeable to the terms of the planned
business disposal as part of the restructuring program.


PAXELENT CORPORATION: Incurs MYR1.7-Million Loss in 1Q/FY2006
-------------------------------------------------------------
Paxelent Corporation Berhad, on May 31, 2006, filed with Bursa
Malaysia Securities Berhad its financial report for the first
quarter ended March 31, 2006.

For the quarter under review, the Group recorded lower revenue
of MYR3.2 million as compared to MYR11.7 million in the same
period last year due to the disposal of its foreign subsidiaries
-- Xiptech Holdings Pte Ltd and Xiptech Corporation Ltd.  Both
XH and XC have substantial revenue contribution during the
preceding year corresponding period and this has resulted in a
higher loss before tax of MYR 1.7 million as compared to MYR1.4
million in the same period last year.

The Group recorded a loss before tax of MYR1.7 million as
compared to profit before tax of MYR21.8 million for the
immediate preceding quarter due mainly to the materialization of
the consolidation reserve in relation to the disposal of its
foreign subsidiaries during the immediate preceding quarter.

The Company's balance sheet as of March 31, 2006, revealed
strained liquidity with current assets of MYR26,570,000
available to pay current liabilities of MYR64,739,000 due within
the next 12 months.

The Company's directors have not recommended any dividend for
the current financial quarter ended March 31, 2006.

                    About Sateras Resources

Headquartered in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, Sateras Resources
(Malaysia) Berhad is principally engaged in investment holding
and provision of management and secretarial services.  The
principal activities of its subsidiary companies are that of
property development, investment in real property, investment
holding and educational services.  

Sateras has been experiencing losses since 1997 and has negative
shareholders' funds as of the financial year ended March 31,
2002.  Due to the economic turmoil, which hit the country in
1997-1998, the financial condition of the Group worsened and had
never recovered since then.  The Sateras Group was highly geared
with total borrowings of MYR167.04 million as of March 2002.  
With the contraction in the property market following the
prolonged weak capital market and the over supply of properties,
the Group's businesses were unable to generate sufficient
revenue and cash flow to service its debts obligations as and
when it fell due since 1998.  The Company filed a Proposed
Restructuring Scheme in 2003 to revive its financial strength
through the injection of profitable and viable assets, providing
the Company's creditors and existing shareholders an avenue to
recover part of their debts or investments.  The primary
objective of the Proposed Debt Settlement is to address its
financial predicament, to rescue the Company from the risk of
being de-listed.  It is also intended to rescue the Company from
the likely event of being wound up or placed under a
receivership due to its inability to meet its financial
commitments.

NEGROS NAVIGATION: In Talks With Foreign & Local Investors
----------------------------------------------------------
Negros Navigation Co., Inc., is negotiating with a foreign
investor and a local shipping firm for a potential cash
injection into the Company, the Philippine Star reports.

Negros Navigation, which currently has seven passenger and cargo
ships and two cargo container ships, needs US$10 million to
implement a re-fleeting program and to improve its operations.
The Company plans to replace two ships next year.

Manila Standard Today says that, according to Jose Lim,
president of the Company's parent firm Metro Pacific Corp., they
have cleaned up Negros Navigation to make it more attractive to
other shipping companies.  In fact, Mr. Lim told reporters,
several companies had already expressed interest to invest in
Negros Navigation following the Company's improved performance
while undergoing rehabilitation.

Mr. Lim adds that, at the right price, Metro Pacific might even
consider selling Negros Navigation.

For fiscal 2005, Negros Navigation turned around with a PHP17-
million net profit against a net loss of PHP480 million in 2004,
thanks to reduced costs and the implementation of cost-cutting
measures, such as employee downsizing to 411 from 600.  The
Company also reported an 18% rise in passenger volume and a 12%
increase in cargo volume.

The Star relates that the Company will focus on improving cash
turnover and collection in its passenger and freight business to
meet its debt obligations and boost operations.

According to the Star, Negros Navigation expects to post a net
income of PHP50 million for 2006, on revenues of PHP2.2 billion.

In December 2003, the Philippine Securities and Exchange
Commission ordered Negros Navigation to explain five accounting
discrepancies in its 2002 audited financial statement, which may
have bloated its earnings.

In March 2004, Negros Navigation entered into talks with
Tsuneishi Heavy Industries to settle the Company's PHP100
million debt.

The Troubled Company Reporter - Asia Pacific reported on
March 27, 2006, that Negros Navigation's total debt is projected
at PHP2.4 billion.

Negros Navigation's creditors include:

      Creditor                              Debt
      --------                              ----
      Bank of Commerce                PHP127.65 million
      Equitable PCI Bank               PHP51.56 million
      Prudential Bank and Trust Co.    PHP37.77 million
      Metropolitan Bank and Trust Co.  PHP10.73 million
      Dutch firm Financial            PHP108.22 million
      Pioneer Insurance                PHP63.34 million

Development Bank of the Philippines and the Export-Import Bank
are also among Negros Navigation's creditors.

The Company also owes PHP1 billion to its equipment and property
lessors and trade suppliers, and needs to settle PHP400 million
in unpaid taxes to the Bureau of Internal Revenue.

Due to its financial condition, Negros Navigation could not pay
its debts as they matured.  Thus, the Company filed for
rehabilitation before the Manila Regional Trial Court on Oct. 6,
2004.  Subsequently, the Court approved the Company's 10-year
restructuring plan recommended by its receiver, Monico Jacob, a
year later.

Under the court-approved rehabilitation plan, Negros Navigation
proposed to settle its financial obligations through cash
settlement, dacion en pago of passage tickets and cargo space,
debt conversion into convertible shares at par value, and the
restructuring of balance into long-term notes or preferred
shares.  The Court allowed the Company to restructure its total
secured debt for 10 years, with a one-year grace period on
interest payments and a three-year grace period on the
principal.   

A later TCR-AP report on May 24, 2006, stated that Negros
Navigation reported a drop in its losses for the first quarter
of 2006 to PHP29 million, against a restated PHP82 million net
loss for the same period last year, on reduced operations.


PREMIERE ENTERTAINMENT: Turns Around with PHP370,000 Net Income
---------------------------------------------------------------
Premiere Entertainment Productions, Inc., posted a net income of
PHP0.37 million for the first quarter of 2006, compared to a net
loss of PHP1.24 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2005,
the Troubled Company Reporter - Asia Pacific learns from the
Company's quarterly report submitted to the Philippine Stock
Exchange.

The Company has no recorded operating revenue, as its Roving
Cinema division has no projects within the quarter.  However,
the Company disclosed that negotiations with some advertising
companies are ongoing.  The company is also in negotiations with
interested parties on the sale of its film library.

The net income is due to a PHP1.65 million interest and other
non-operating income realized within the period.

Premiere Entertainment's financial report for the quarter ended
March 31, 2006, reflects these key figures:

Premiere Entertainment Productions, Inc. -- formerly known as
Premiere Films International, Inc. -- is engaged in the business
of dealing in and with all kinds of motion pictures to the
business of various forms of entertainment and leisure
including, but not limited to, movie films and export and
distribution services offered to and for local and international
film market.

Despite being debt-free, the Company's cash position indicates
that it will need aggressive revenue development, collection of
trade/non-trade receivables and massive cost reduction efforts.
Current collected revenues are only sufficient to cover for
administrative overhead expenses.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter - Asia Pacific on
June 5, 2006, Jessie Cabaluna, of Sycip Gorres Velayo and Co.,
raised significant doubt on Premiere Entertainment's ability to
continue as a going concern after auditing the Company's annual
report for the year ended December 31, 2005.


PRIME MEDIA: In Talks with Creditors to Clear Balance Sheet
-----------------------------------------------------------
Prime Media Holdings, Inc., is currently clearing up its balance
sheet to make way for the entry of a new investor willing to
inject its business or assets into the Company, the Troubled
Company Reporter - Asia Pacific learns from the Company's annual
report submitted to the Philippine Stock Exchange.

On September 12, 2002, the Company entered into a memorandum of
agreement with Banco de Oro Unversal Bank, which agreed to
assume the Company's PHP10 billion in liabilities for assets of
equivalent value in the Company.  On Oct.23, 2002, BDO assumed
the servicing of the bank's deposit liabilities and other
banking functions.

After the Prime Media's annual stockholders' meeting on Dec. 6,
2002, it started to wind up its operations for turnover to BDO.  
It also started talks with major creditors to settle its loans
and clean up its balance sheet, to prepare for the entry of new
investors.

According to auditors Sycip, Gorres and Velayo, the Company's
ability to continue as a going concern depends on its ability to
raise new capital, accomplish its new business plan and return
to profit.

The Company incurred net losses in 2005 and its capital
deficiency as of Dec. 31, 2005, was PHP827.3 million.

Prime Media's financial report for the year ended Dec. 31, 2005,
reflects these key figures:

Prime Media Holdings, Inc. (formerly First E-bank Corporation),
was incorporated in the Philippines and is listed in the
Philippine Stock Exchange.  On December 6, 2002, the Company's
board of directors approved the amendment of its articles of
incorporation to change its primary purpose from a development
bank to a holding company, which would hold investments in media
industry.  The Securities and Exchange Commission approved the
amendment on October 1, 2003.  The Company's principal place of
business is at BDO Plaza, 8737 Paseo de Roxas Avenue, Makati
City.


PRYCE CORP: Court of Appeals Rejects Rehabilitation Plan
--------------------------------------------------------
The Court of Appeals rejected the rehabilitation plan of Pryce
Corp. in terms of a debt to creditor Bank of the Philippine
Islands, and ordered the Company to pay BPI PHP100 million on
account of this debt, the Philippine Star reveals.  

A court ruling handed down by Associate Justice Rebecca de Guia-
Salvador stated that the corporate rehabilitation should not
have detracted the trial court's attention "from the fundamental
principle that a contract is, first and foremost, the law
between the contracting parties, and that obligations arising
therefrom should be complied with in good faith."

The Company had borrowed PHP100 million from BPI to maintain
operations, and the loan was secured by mortgages on its
properties.  Yet, Pryce sought rehabilitation on July 9, 2004,
stating that it could not pay its debts to the bank due to weak
business following the Asian financial crisis.

A Makati City regional trial court then granted Pryce's petition
to pay its debts via dacion en pago, or delivery and
transmission of ownership of a thing by the debtor to the
creditor as an accepted equivalent of the performance of
obligation, on Jan. 17, 2005.

BPI argued Pryce's rehabilitation, saying that the regional
trial court had no legal and factual basis to approve the dacion
en pago, which would hinder parties from voluntarily entering
into a contract.

                            * * *

Pryce Corporation -- http://www.prycegardens.com/-- formerly
Pryce Properties Corporation, was incorporated as a property
holding and real estate development company.  The Company's real
estate undertakings include the development of memorial parks,
residential and commercial properties and hotel operations.
In 1997, LPG and industrial gases became the dominant business.  
Thus, the Company changed its name to Pryce Corp. and its
primary purpose from that of a property company to a
manufacturing company.

Pryce, thru its subsidiary Pryce Gases, Inc., manufactures and
distributes oxygen and acetylene in the Visayas and Mindanao and
trades in other gases such as argon, carbon dioxide and
nitrogen.

                          *     *     *

On June 7, 2002, PGI presented a financial rehabilitation plan
to its various creditor banks and foreign financing company as
an initial step towards restructuring its outstanding loans.
On August 27, 2002, the International Finance Corporation and
FMO-Netherlands Development Finance Company, two of PGI's
creditors, filed a petition in court placing PGI under
receivership.  On September 2 that same year, the court issued a
stay order pursuant to the interim rules of procedures on
corporate rehabilitation.

On July 9, 2004, Pryce submitted a Rehabilitation Plan of its
own to the court as an initial step towards restructuring its
outstanding loans.  The Plan was revised and later approved by
the court on January 17, 2005.  The Revised Plan conforms to the
scheme of liquidating all bank loans and long-term commercial
papers by way of dacion en pago of real estate properties with
certain revisions on the settlement of non-banking and trade and
other payables which are PHP500,000 or below.

The Troubled Company Reporter - Asia Pacific reported on May 23,
2006, that Sycip Gorres Velayo & Co. raised substantial doubt on
Pryce Corp.'s ability to continue as a going concern after
auditing the Company's financials for the quarter ended
March 31, 2006.

The Company reported a 38.4% drop in its first-quarter revenue
from PHP465 million in 2005, to PHP286.33 million in 2006.  Net
loss from operations was pegged at PHP22.6 million in the 2006
first quarter, down from the PHP26.6 million in the first
quarter of 2005.  The Company indicated in its financial report
that no dividends have been declared for fiscal 2004 and 2005,
as well as for the first quarter of 2006.

The Company's ability to declare and pay dividends is restricted
by the availability of funds and the provision of existing loan
agreements.


VICTORIAS MILLING: Deutsche Bank Acquires 36 Million Shares
-----------------------------------------------------------
In a letter to the Philippine Stock Exchange dated June 5, 2006,
Victorias Milling Company, Inc., disclosed that according to its
stock and transfer agent, Fidelity Stock Transfers, Inc.,
Deutsche Bank AG London had acquired 36,888,836 shares in the
Company on May 25, 2006.

The Company sought an extension of 10 working days from June 5,
2006, to submit the required Statement of Change in Beneficial
Ownership of Securities for the share acquisition, as it has yet
to receive the statement of acquisition of shares from Deutsche
Bank AG.

                      About Victorias Milling

Headquartered in Victorias City, Bacolod, Victorias Milling
Company Inc. -- http://www.victoriasmilling.com/-- was  
organized in 1919 and is engaged in the acquisition,
construction, maintenance and operation of sugar mills, as well
as other related business activities.  Through the years, the
Company has expanded its operations to include a foundry, a
machine shop, a fabrication shop, a food canning company, an
organic fertilizer plant and a piggery.  However, the Company
has incurred significant losses from operations, which adversely
affected its financial condition and cash flow position.

On July 4, 1997, the Company filed an application with the
Securities and Exchange Commission to suspend payments to
creditors.  On July 8, 1997, the SEC issued a stay order
restraining all VMC creditors or any of its subsidiaries from
enforcing their claims, to allow the Company or any of its
subsidiaries to continue to their normal business operations.
The SEC also ordered the formation of a Management Committee to
oversee the Company's operations and rehabilitation.

VMC has an accumulated deficit of PHP3.7 billion, PHP3.6 billion
and PHP3.3 billion as of August 31, 2005, 2004, and 2003,
respectively, and capital deficiency of PHP1.8 billion and
PHP1.6 billion as of August 31, 2005 and 2004, which adversely
affected its financial condition and cash flow position.

VMC further defaulted on payments of its maturing liabilities to
creditors, which are currently under a debt restructuring
program.  Except for Victorias Foods Corporation, VMC's other
consolidated subsidiaries -- Canetown Development Corporation,
Victorias Quality Packaging Company Inc., and Victorias
Agricultural Land Corporation -- have also incurred significant
losses from operations, and have accumulated deficits and
capital deficiencies, which have adversely affected their
financial condition and cash flow position.  Moreover, the other
related companies, North Negros Marketing Co., Inc., has
declared bankruptcy, while Caneland Sugar Corporation has ceased
milling operations in April 1997.

According to a report by the Troubled Company Reporter on
May 31, 2006, Victorias Milling's net loss reached PHP236.4
million for the fiscal year ended August 31, 2005, against a
PHP305.85 million loss for financial year 2004.  

The Company's balance as of August 31, 2005, showed total assets
equal to PHP7.19 billion, versus total liabilities amounting
PHP9 billion, resulting to a stockholders' equity deficit of
PHP1.8 billion.  The balance sheet also showed strained
liquidity with  PHP1.48 billion in current assets available to
pay PHP1.59 billion in current liabilities as they come due
within the next fiscal year.


ZEUS HOLDINGS: Auditor Raises Going Concern Doubt
-------------------------------------------------
Lilian Linsangan, of Punongbayan & Araullo, expressed
substantial doubt about Zeus Holdings, Inc.'s ability to
continue as a going concern after auditing the Company's
financials for the year ended December 31, 2005.

The going concern doubt is due to the Company's capital
deficiency resulting from losses incurred in prior years and the
absence of any investing and operating activity.

Specifically, the Company has incurred these losses since 2002:

             Fiscal Year               Net Loss
             -----------               --------
                2005                 PHP554,657
                2004                    421,293
                2003                    404,301
                2002                    685,734

As of December 31, 2005, the Company's current liabilities
exceeded its total assets by PHP0.78 million.

The Company's balance sheet also reflected a deficit of
PHP2,767,642,335, and capital deficiency of PHP784,487.

The Company's financial report for the year ended December 31,
2005, is available for free at:

   http://bankrupt.com/misc/ZHI_17A_Dec2005.pdf

Zeus Holdings, Inc., was incorporated on December 17, 1981, as
JR Garments Corporation, to engage in the garment manufacturing,
distribution and export business.  After 15 years, the Company
diversified into other businesses and closed its garment
operations.  It increased its capitalization from PHP100 million
to PHP3 billion and changed its primary purpose to that of a
holding company.  Consequently, it changed its name from JR
Garments Corporation to Zeus Holdings, Inc.

The Company has not declared any cash dividend for the last two
fiscal years.

The Company is in the process of finding other means and
resources to address liquidity and capital deficiency problems
by way of infusion of property or cash by new investors or
introduction of a new business to the Company.

Its parent company, PICOP Holdings Inc., is committed to support
Zeus Holdings' operations.  In the immediate term, PHI will
provide the cash requirements of the Company.  For this reason,
there are no expected major changes in its operations, including
any significant changes in its manpower compliment or the
purchase and sale of plant or other major equipment.

ACCORD CUSTOMER: Former CEO Pleads Guilty to Fraud
--------------------------------------------------
Accord Customer Care Solution's former chief executive officer,
Victor Tan, has pleaded guilty to 21 counts of fraud, false
financial reporting and conspiring to cheat mobile giant Nokia,
Channel News Asia reports.

Mr. Tan now faces up to seven years in jail and a possible fine
of SGD250,000, the report says.  Mr. Tan was in the hot seat
last year and was originally accused of 99 counts of cheating,
fraud and false financial reporting.

The prosecutors accused Mr. Tan of ordering his staff to take
advantage of an industry-wide practice of over-claiming warranty
repair work from big clients like Nokia.

Several former top executives at Accord Customer have been fined
for their role in the scam.  Moreover, ex-chief financial
officer, Yip Hwai Chong, was jailed for four years and four
months.

Along with Mr. Tan, former general manager Damien Ang also
pleaded guilty to 20 charges of cheating and fraud, Channel News
Asia says.  Mr. Tan and Mr. Ang will be sentenced early next
month.

Mr. Tan's lawyers told Channel News that they are working to
reduce the sentence as much as possible and will submit
mitigation arguments on July 6.
