AUSTRALIAN CAPITAL: Auditors & Former Execs Summoned by Court
-------------------------------------------------------------
Australian Capital Reserve Ltd.'s auditors, valuers and former
directors have been summoned to appear before the New South
Wales Supreme Court next week, Anthony Klan writes for The
Australian.

According to Mr. Klan, ACR liquidator PricewaterhouseCoopers
called for legal examinations to determine whether it will
proceed with an action against those parties associated with the
failed empire.

PwC liquidator Phil Carter explained to The Australian,
"Undertaking examinations is an important part of the
liquidators' investigations into the causes of the collapse of
ACR and any assets that may be recoverable for the benefit of
creditors.  We expect that the information obtained in these
examinations will assist in deciding whether to pursue recovery
action."

Any action could deliver million of dollars in additional
returns for ACR's 7000 unsecured investors who currently stand
to recover between 58 and 59 cents for each dollar invested,
relates The Australian.

The Australian notes that PwC had previously said it was more
interested in recovering money from professional parties (such
as auditors and valuers) than from ACR's directors whose
personal wealth was "relatively small."

According to the report, Moore Stephens accounting firm audit
partners Scott Whiddett, Christopher Chandran and Stephen
Humphrys, and ACR valuer Peter Phippen of Abbotts Valuers
have been summonsed by PwC to appear.  Former ACR directors Sam
Pogson, Murray Lapham, Timothy Mansfield and Steven Martin have
also been called to testify, adds The Australian.

CHRYSLER LLC: Disputes Roush Claim on Plastic Molds at Plastech
---------------------------------------------------------------
As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on March 19, 2008,
Roush Manufacturing asked the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the
Eastern District of Michigan to lift the automatic stay to allow
it to recover molds that Plastech Engineered Products Inc. and
its debtor-affiliates use in the production of parts for
particular vehicles manufactured by Chrysler LLC.

Chrysler Motors Company, LLC and Chrysler Canada, Inc., through
their counsel, Michael C. Hammer, Esq., at Dickinson Wright
PLLC, in Ann Arbor, Michigan, assert that Roush Manufacturing,
Inc., has not and cannot establish "cause" for relief from the
stay under Section 362(d)(1) of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code.

Mr. Hammer asserts that Roush, with respect to its claims as to
depreciating value, should be required to produce appropriate
proof that the value of the Molds is in fact diminishing,  and
that it is not adequately protected.

He further asserts that Roush's unsupported allegation --
Chrysler is "more likely" to replace the Molds than it is to pay
for the Molds -- is inaccurate.

Mr. Hammer tells the Court that Chrysler has maintained it would
escrow the amount necessary to satisfy any mold builders' claims
to unpaid tooling, including that of Roush, saying that "it will
immediately pay the US$13,400,000 into an escrow account so that
it may also take possession of the unpaid tooling as well as the
paid tooling".  If Chrysler desired to simply replace the Molds,
it would have made no proposal, Mr. Hammer states.

He also avers that Roush's request should be denied because
Chrysler -- not Roush -- has the superior right to possess the
Molds.  The Court has already found that Chrysler has an
immediate right to possess the tooling, stating in its Opinion
that, "[T]here is nothing about their arguments that would in
any way diminish the right of Chrysler to fully expect that the
possessory rights conferred upon it in the tooling acknowledges
to be enforced... The Court concludes that Chrysler has met its
burden to demonstrate a strong or substantial likelihood or
probability that it will be successful on the merits with
respect to its right to demand possession of the tooling that it
has paid for and any unpaid tooling with respect to which there
is a dispute."

           Goldman Sachs Says Roush Not Entitled to Lien

Goldman Sachs Credit Partners L.P., as agent to the lenders
under the US$265,000,000 first lien term loan facility, entered
into on February 12, 2007, says Roush's request to lift the
automatic stay is not supported by the Bankruptcy Code and
should be denied.

Louis P. Rochkind, Esq., at Jaffe Raitt Heuer & Weiss, in
Southfield, Michigan, asserts Roush does not possess a lien on
the Molds.  Mr. Rochkind asserts Roush failed to properly file a
financing statement under the Michigan Uniform Commercial Code
as required under the Michigan Mold Lien Act.

Roush's financing statement lists the debtor name as the trade
name "Plastech" rather than the correct legal name "Plastech
Engineered Products, Inc."  This error, Mr. Rochkind says,
renders the financing statement ineffective under U.C.C. Section
9502 because (i) a trade name is insufficient to provide the
name of the debtor under U.C.C. Section 9503(3); and (ii) the
name "Plastech" is seriously misleading because Roush's
financing statement did not show up on a recent Online UCC lien
search conducted using Michigan's standard search logic of
searching debtor names "exactly as requested, with no
variations."

Mr. Rochkind also asserts the molds against which Roush seeks to
exercise rights and remedies are currently encumbered by
properly perfected senior liens of the Prepetition First Lien
Term Lenders, as well as the Prepetition Revolving Lenders and
DIP Lenders.

Granting Roush's request would potentially permit Roush, an
unsecured creditor, to repossess a secured creditor's
collateral, Mr. Rochkind avers.

                          Debtors Object

The Debtors ask the Court to deny Roush' request, citing that:

    (a) the Molds are necessary to an effective reorganization;

    (b) Roush has failed to demonstrate that cause exists to
        modify the automatic stay under section 362(d)(1);

    (c) Roush's assersions are based upon a disputed premise
        -- that Roush has a valid perfected security interest in
        the Molds, and;

    (d) Roush's request is procedurally improper and seeks relief
        properly sought only through the commencement of an
        adversary proceeding.

Gregg M. Galardi, Esq., at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom
LLP, in Wilmington, Delaware says the Debtors' continued right
to use the Molds is necessary to the Debtors' reorganization
efforts in that the molds are used in the RT Program to
manufacture parts for various Chrysler vehicles.  The Debtors'
revenue from this program amounts to approximately US$15,000,000
annually.

At this stage of the reorganization process, Mr. Galardi
relates, the Debtors continue to produce parts for Chrysler
using the Molds, and have been negotiating with Chrysler for
continued production of component parts for a period of time.

Mr. Galardi states that, conversely, Roush cannot demonstrate it
will suffer any legally cognizable harm if the motion is denied
as any harm would be monetary harm at best.  He notes that
monetary damages, even if significant, do not constitute
irreparable harm.

Additionally, pursuant to Michigan Law, Roush's U.C.C. financing
statement is seriously misleading and, therefore, ineffective,
Mr. Galardi avers.  The Financing Statement identifies
"Plastech" as the organization name, instead of "Plastech
Engineered Products, Inc.", he reiterates.

DANA CORP: Fitch Affirms 'BBB-' Rating on $90MM Revenue Bonds
-------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings affirmed and removed from rating watch negative
its 'BBB+' rating on the bond fund's outstanding $90.2 million
development revenue bonds.  The rating outlook is stable.

The removal from rating watch negative reflects the emergence
from bankruptcy of Dana Holdings Inc. and its continued timely
payments on its lease obligation.

The bond fund was placed on rating watch negative on Mar. 15,
2006, due to the Chapter 11 bankruptcy filings by two of the
pool's participants, Dana and Engineered Plastic Products Inc.
Both participants are auto parts manufacturers.

The Port Authority used EPP's dedicated reserves and liquidated
assets to fully repay the series 2005B outstanding bonds in
December 2006.

The bond fund bonds issued on behalf of Dana, which account for
7.1% of the portfolio or $6.4 million, are secured by lease
payments that are backed by a first mortgage lien and first
security interest on Dana's research and development facility
and equipment, located in Lucas County.

In connection with the bankruptcy court approved settlement
agreement and the order confirming Dana's reorganization plan,
the company has amended its lease agreement to reflect quarterly
lease payments to the authority instead of monthly lease
payments. The amended lease payments are sufficient to pay the
debt service on the related series 2002B bonds issued by the
authority through maturity.

The authority established the bond fund in 1988 to advance
economic development efforts in the region.  Currently, the bond
fund has 26 participants, with outstanding bonds totaling $90.2
million.  The authority remains the program's largest obligor
representing 11.2% of the total portfolio.

In addition to lease or loan payments by the pool participants,
all of the bond fund bonds are equally and ratably secured by
funds held in reserves, which equal $28.6 million or 32% of the
principal of all outstanding bonds.

The bond fund reserves comprise: primary reserves funded by each
borrower equal to approximately 10% of bond principal; program
reserves, which include a $6.5 million cash contribution from
the authority and a $10 million irrevocable letter of credit
from Fifth Third Bank that expires Nov. 15, 2016, subject to
extension; and additional reserves specific to certain series of
bonds.

Shortfalls in bond payments due to loan or lease defaults must
be made up first from the defaulting borrowers' primary
reserves, then from program reserves, and finally from any
remaining primary
reserves.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Feb. 12, 2008,
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its 'BB-' corporate
credit rating to Toledo, Ohio-based Dana Holding Corp. following
the company's emergence from Chapter 11 on Feb. 1, 2008.  The
outlook is negative.  At the same time, Standard & Poor's
assigned Dana's US$650 million asset-based loan revolving credit
facility due 2013 a 'BB+' rating (two notches higher than the
corporate credit rating) with a recovery rating of '1',
indicating an expectation of very high recovery in the event of
a payment default.  In addition, S&P assigned a 'BB' bank loan
rating to Dana's US$1.43 billion senior secured term loan with a
recovery rating of '2', indicating an expectation of average
recovery.


DANA: Steelworkers Union Seeks US$2,500,000 Success Fee Payment
---------------------------------------------------------------
The United Steel, Paper, and Forestry, Rubber, Manufacturing,
Energy, Allied Industrial and Service Workers International
Union asks the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District
of New York to compel payment of $2,500,000 as investment
management fee for the professional services rendered by its
financial advisor, Potok and Co., Inc., for:

    (1) the firm's role in the successful resolution of the
        abor, financial and restructuring issues involving the
        USW and the International Union, United Automobile,
        Aerospace and Agricultural Implement Workers of America;
        and

    (2) the negotiation of the global settlement with Dana Corp
        and its debtor-affiliates and Centerbridge Capital
        Partners.

Suzanne Hepner, Esq., at Levy Ratner, P.C., in New York, says
the Global Settlement provided the cornerstone for the Debtors'
Plan of Reorganization, which was overwhelmingly approved by
voting creditors and confirmed by the Court less than five
months after the Global Settlement was decisively approved by
the Court.

Ms. Hepner adds that Potok's role as financial advisor to the
Unions throughout the bankruptcy cases and in working with the
Debtors and Centerbridge in the Global Settlement process
demonstrates that payment of a $2,500,000, success fee for
substantial contribution to the Debtors' bankruptcy cases is
appropriate under Sections 503(b)(3) and 4.  "Potok's services
demonstrably fostered and enhanced the process of Dana's
reorganization and benefited Dana's estate and creditors", she
asserts.

MEGA BRANDS: Posts US$97 Million Net Loss in 2007
-------------------------------------------------
MEGA Brands Inc. reported its fourth quarter and full-year 2007
financial results.  Full-year net loss was US$97.1 million
compared to net earnings of $25.3 million in 2006.  Net loss was
US$66.2 million in fourth quarter 2007, compared to net earnings
of US$2.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2006.

"2007 was a difficult year for MEGA Brands, for our employees
and shareholders, and for our many loyal fans,"  Marc Bertrand,
president and CEO, stated.  "We are disappointed with our
overall performance and we promise that no effort is being
spared to achieve a meaningful turnaround as quickly as
possible."

"We are solidly on track to achieve the $12 million in
annualized savings targeted under the Value Enhancement Plan
announced at the end of the third quarter.  We have exciting new
products in the pipeline in all of our product categories and we
are pleased to be working with Intertek, a leading provider of
quality and safety solutions, as we roll out MAGNEXT(R: 60.91,
+0.08, +0.13%), the new generation of magnetic construction
toys," added Bertrand.

"Although 2007 was a challenging year, there were several
positive results in the company's performance, including record
sales of preschool construction toys and continued solid growth
in international sales," Mr. Bertrand added.  "In Stationery and
Activities, sales matched 2006 levels, with improved margins.

"We are very focused on executing the many operational and new
product initiatives under way. With the recent amendment to our
credit agreement, we now have the financial flexibility to
implement current initiatives that will strengthen our core toy
business while exploring a sale of our Stationery and Activities
business through an orderly process," concluded Bertrand.

Financial results were impacted by these factors in 2007:

    -- US$65.9 million of Specified Items resulting mainly from
       voluntary product recall, inventory provisions, sales
       below cost and termination of licensing agreements;

    -- lower gross profit generated by the Magnetix product line
       of US$21 million due to lower unit sales and prices;

    -- lower manufacturing efficiencies resulting from the
       inventory reduction plan initiated by the corporation and
       the downsizing of the Woodridge, New Jersey facility which
       was fully closed in December 2007.  The impact of lower
       manufacturing efficiencies on gross profit amounted to
       approximately US$6 million.

    -- US$5.7 million of Other Charges.

Marketing and advertising expenses were slightly lower at
US$26.2 million compared to $26.8 million in 2006.

                              Liquidity

Cash flows used in operating activities before changes in non-
cash operating working capital amounted to US$26.3 million
compared to cash flows generated of US$1.8 million in the fourth
quarter of 2006.

This change resulted from the higher net loss in the 2007
period. After favorable changes in non-cash operating working
capital in both periods, cash flows from operating activities
were US$64.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2007 compared to
US$28 million in the corresponding 2006 period.

At Dec. 31, the company's balance sheet showed total assets of
US$709.714 million, total liabilities US$487.320 million and
total shareholders' equity US$222.394 million.

                       About Mega Brands Inc.

REALOGY CORP: S&P Retains 'B' Issue-level Rating on Senior Notes
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services revised its recovery rating
on Realogy Corp.'s senior unsecured debt to '4', indicating that
lenders can expect average (30% to 50%) recovery in the event of
a payment default, from '3'.  The issue-level rating on these
securities remains unchanged at 'B' (at the same level as the
'B' corporate credit rating on the company).

The recovery rating revision reflects Standard & Poor's reduced
cash flow expectations for Realogy, which also resulted in S&P's
outlook change on the company to negative from stable.

REALOGY CORP: CFO Hull Comments on S&P's March Outlook Action
-------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services, on March 27, 2008, affirmed
Realogy Corp.'s "B" corporate rating, but revised its outlook
from "Stable" to "Negative."

According to S&P credit analyst Emile Courtney, "[t]he outlook
revision reflects a significantly lower expectation for EBITDA
generation in 2008 than we had previously anticipated, as well
as the resultant narrowing of the EBITDA cushion in the
company's senior secured credit facilities leverage covenant[.]"

CFO Anthony E. Hull however said that the S&P report does not
explicitly mention three key factors that are important to
reiterate:

      -- Realogy's interest cost in 2008 will be significantly
         less than previously expected and 2007 pro forma levels.

      -- Realogy's proactive cost savings and cash maximization
         initiatives that have been successfully implemented
         (including exit from the government at-risk business
         that will free up US$50 million of cash this year) will
         continue to enhance our ability to tap into our bank
         debt revolver.

      -- Due to the seasonality of the real estate market, first
         quarter of any year is historically our slowest quarter
         (not just 2008).  As we are only one-quarter into the
         year, the company has 85% to 90% of its EBITDA
         opportunity ahead of it.

While the revised outlook was based primarily upon the
continuing downturn in the residential real estate market, the
S&P report concluded with the following astute statement:
"Even though a return to growth in sides and price metrics in
the industry could be at least one year away (in early 2009),
our expectation remains that Realogy will benefit meaningfully
in terms of growth in EBITDA and cash flow generation when the
cycle turns upward, and that credit measures would improve."

ST. GEORGE BANK: Increases Main Mortgage Rate by 10 Basis Points
----------------------------------------------------------------
St. George Bank Ltd. lifted its main mortgage rate by a further
10 basis points, pressured by the global credit crunch, Danny
John of The Sydney Morning Herald reports.

According to Mr. John, the pressure on banks caused by the
global credit crunch has pushed interest rates on standard
variable home loans to almost 9.5%.

St. George's decision to push up the price of its standard
variable mortgages for the second time in less than four weeks,
puts it on top of the leading banks, which have now severed the
link between the official cash rate set by the Reserve Bank and
the industry's own interest rates, relates SMH.

SMH states that St. George said it was absorbing some of the
additional funding pressures even with the latest price
increase.  The 10 basis points rise will add AU$17 a month to
its average loan of AU$250,000 repayable over 30 years, the
report relates.

                       About St. George Bank

Headquartered in Kogarah, New South Wales, Australia --

NOVELL INC: Augments Operations With PlateSpin Buyout Completion
----------------------------------------------------------------
Novell Inc. completed its acquisition of PlateSpin Ltd.  The
company related that PlateSpin allows the movement of workloads
between physical and virtual environments regardless of platform
or operating system.  These capabilities, combined with Novell's
systems management solutions, enable customers to fully leverage
their virtualization investments and reduce both costs and
server sprawl in their data centers.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on Feb. 28, 2008,
Novell Inc. entered into a definitive agreement to acquire
PlateSpin Ltd. for $205 million.

"The addition of PlateSpin to Novell's existing enterprise IT
management and Linux solutions will give customers the
capabilities they need to build their next generation data
center," Joe Wagner, senior vice president and general manager
of Novell(R) Systems and Resource Management, said.  "With
solutions for data center consolidation, virtualization,
relocation, disaster recovery and ongoing optimization,
customers now have powerhouse technology to reduce cost,
minimize risk and create value across heterogeneous environments
with flexibility, interoperability and agility."

"We are excited to be joining the Novell organization and a
global team of people committed to the vision of optimizing the
data center," Stephen Pollack, founder and CEO of PlateSpin,
said.  "We will continue to focus on the development of the
PlateSpin product line and look forward to the new synergies our
combined offerings will bring to customers."

With the closing of the acquisition, PlateSpin will become part

QUEBECOR WORLD: Court Allows Assumption of BofA's P-Card Pact
-------------------------------------------------------------
Pursuant to Section 363 of the Bankruptcy Code, Quebecor World
Inc. and its debtor-affiliates are authorized to use property of
their bankruptcy estates to pay Bank of America on account of
prepetition amounts due and owing under the existing purchasing
card agreement.

Pursuant to Section 364(a), the Debtors are authorized to obtain
unsecured postpetition financing from Bank of America under an
employee purchasing card program.

As reported in the Troubled Company Reporter on March 24, 2008
the Debtors sought permission from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court for
the Southern District of New York to assume their Purchasing
Card Agreement with Bank of America and cure an existing
monetary default.  In the alternative, the Debtors seek the
Court's authority to re-establish a purchasing card agreement
with Bank of America.

Michael Canning, Esq., at Arnold & Porter LLP, in New York,
related that prior to the bankruptcy filing, the Debtors had a
purchasing card agreement with Bank of America in which Bank of
America issued credit cards to certain of the Debtors' employees
to be used in a manner similar to consumer credit cards and
constitute unsecured debt obligations to the Debtors.

The Debtors have historically used P-Cards for transactions with
small vendors or ad hoc purchases in large part to minimize
administrative costs for smaller purchasing transactions.  The
P-Cards serve as substitutes for petty cash, thus reducing the
need for the Debtors to keep cash on hand at each of their
facilities and permitting the Debtors to make certain payments
more efficiently than would be possible using checks or wire
transfers.

Through 2007, the Debtors had approximately 400 individual card
users and processed approximately US$2,000,000 per month in
purchases on the P-Cards.

The provision of purchasing card services was withdrawn by Bank
of America in mid-December 2007, in conjunction with actions
taken by Bank of America to reduce credit exposure to the
Debtors.  As of the bankruptcy filing, the Debtors had an
outstanding balance of US$460,000 owing to Bank of America for
prepetition charges.

QUIKSILVER INC: S&P Puts BB- Credit Rating Under Negative Watch
---------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services placed its ratings on
Quiksilver Inc., including its 'BB-' corporate credit rating, on
CreditWatch with negative implications.  The Huntington Beach,
Calif.-based apparel company had about US$996 million in debt
outstanding at Jan. 31, 2008.

The CreditWatch placement reflects the much weaker-than-expected
credit measures reported for the first quarter ended January
2008.  "While we expected that results would be lower due to the
company's current difficulties with its Rossignol hard-good
equipment business," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst
Susan Ding, "financial measures for the last 12 months came in
well below our expectations, despite the US$100 million debt
reduction from the sale of its Cleveland Golf business in
December 2007."

Standard & Poor's originally expected that leverage would be
about 4.7x at year end (adjusted for the sale of Cleveland
Golf).  However, due to losses at the Rossignol business that
depressed the EBITDA base significantly, leverage climbed to
close to 6x for the 12 months ended January 2008 versus about
5.7x for the 12 months ended October 2007.  Total debt also
increased as a result of increased capitalized operating leases,
due to the new retail stores opened during the year.  Although
the company announced it will explore selling the Rossignol
business, it is uncertain when and if the company would be able
to effect a transaction, in light of the current economic
environment, and what the magnitude would be of any potential
debt reduction from the application of sale proceeds and ensuing
improvement in credit measures.

"We will meet with management to further discuss Quiksilver's
operating trends and forecasts in order to resolve the
CreditWatch," said Ms. Ding.

TAIHEIYO CEMENT: Unit Acquires Two U.S. Concrete Makers
-------------------------------------------------------
Taiheiyo Cement Corp. acquired SSMC Holdings Corp. for an
undisclosed sum on April 2 to bolster its North American
operations, Jiji Press reports.

According to the report, California Portland Cement Co., a
wholly owned unit of Taiheiyo Cement USA Inc., bought all shares
in SSMC, the parent of concrete maker Silver State Materials
LLC.

Silver State, notes Jiji Press, operates eight ready-mixed
concrete plants in and outside Las Vegas, while California
Portland owns no such plant in the city.

Taiheiyo decided on the acquisition to bolster its operations
mainly in the city, the report relates.

On January 10, Taiehiyo, through is U.S. unit, acquired the
business assets of IMIX Group, an Arizona-based producer and
seller of ready-mixed concrete and aggregate.

In a posting on the company's Web site, Taiheiyo said that
"Arizona has tremendous upside potential for population and
economic growth, and demand for ready-mixed concrete and
aggregate appears poised to continue rising in and around
Phoenix, the state's main population center."

Acquiring the assets of IMIX, which serves Phoenix and
vicinity, gives California Portland the capacity to enter the
downstream market in the Phoenix area as well as secure a stable
customer for cement manufactured at the Rillito plant.

                       About Taiheiyo Cement

HYNIX SEMI: To Shut Down NAND Fabrication Line in Third Quarter
---------------------------------------------------------------
Hynix Semiconductor Inc. plans to shut down a NAND flash-memory-
chip fabrication line (M9) in the third quarter to reduce output
amid an industry slump and falling chip prices, The Wall Street
Journal reports.

In-Soo Nam of WSJ writes that NAND prices have remained at
record lows since late 2007 because of weaker-than-expected
demand for the chips.

The company's M9 line, the report notes, had a monthly output
capacity of 150,000 units of 8-inch wafers at the end of 2007.
But output was gradually lowered to 120,000 units in the first
quarter of this year, according to WSJ citing Meritz Securities.

Moreover, company spokeswoman Shi Hyun Lee told WSJ that Hynix
also plans to move the launching of its NAND chip-volume
production at a 12-inch fabrication line to the third quarter
due to poor global NAND market.

The report relates that Ms. Lee said the delay and the line
shutdown will likely help reduce the global NAND market's output
by 5% this year.

Lee Sun-Tae, an analyst at Meritz Securities, said: "This is
good news for its rivals and the NAND market. . . .  For Hynix,
this will mean a reduced market share," the report adds.

                    About Hynix Semiconductor

Headquartered in Echon, South Korea, Hynix Semiconductor Inc.
-- http://www.hynix.com/-- is a semiconductor manufacturer.

------------------------------------------------------------
A regulatory filing with the New Zealand Stock Exchange showed
that Windflow Technology Limited incurred a net loss
attributable to security holders of NZ$2.27 million in the six
months ended Dec. 31, 2007.

The company pointed out that for the first time it produced a
positive gross profit from the manufacture of turbines, while
(as expected) remaining in a loss position overall once the
expenditure for non-recurring and overheads is deducted.

Sales revenue of NZ$2,910,052 (last year NZ$2,411,390) has been
recognised for the six-month period.  According to the company,
The main component of the figure is the sale of wind turbines to
NZ Windfarms.  There was additional income of NZ$489,724 but
expenses after deducting the overhead expenses (including
depreciation and amortization) has brought this down to an
interim loss of NZ$2,248,155.

The company expects that for the next year or two it will incur
total overheads (including production staff) of about
NZ$5.5 million annually, and earn revenue of about NZ$40
million.

Christchurch, New Zealand-based Windflow Technology Limited --
http://www.windflow.co.nz/-- is engaged in wind power
development.  As of June 30, 2006, the company held a 20%
shareholding in Windpower Otago Limited.  The principal activity
of Windpower Otago Limited is the development of wind farms.
