ALIATEL A.S.: Business Adviser Recommends Debt-for-equity Swap
--------------------------------------------------------------
A study by Pravda Capital s.r.o. shows telecommunications
company Aliatel may have to file for bankruptcy in April of next
year due to cash flow problems.

According to Czech Happenings, "the level of sales and costs in
the last four years shows that the company is unable to finance
itself from its own resources."  Last year, the firm's sales
grew by 38% to CZK2.55 billion, but its debt remained at CZK2.7
billion.  Debt to shareholders was CZK2 billion, but loss was
down 46% to CZK385 million.

Shareholders are due to choose between a bankruptcy and
restructuring at the company's general meeting.  The meeting was
originally called for July 1, but Aliatel spokesman Pavel Kaidl
told weekly Euro it would take place later in the summer months.

Pravda Capital, a business and management consultancy firm,
suggests a debt-for-equity swap in preparation for the
subsequent sale of the company, which will then be cleared of
debts.

"In particular RWE, the largest shareholder, is thinking about
this solution," one of the other shareholders told Euro.  Share
of owner's equity in total assets has been falling in recent
years.  In 2001 to 2003, shareholder's equity went down to 39%
from 13%.

Aliatel provides voice, data and Internet services.

ALCATEL: Capgemini, SFR Join Eurely Consortium
----------------------------------------------
The Eurely consortium, comprising of Alcatel, Finmeccanica and
Vinci Networks, is now joined by Capgemini, one of the world's
providers of consulting, technology and outsourcing services and
SFR, the second mobile operator in France.  This consortium is
short-listed to become the Galileo concessionaire, the civilian
radio-navigation system initiated by the European Commission and
the European Space Agency.  The Eurely consortium is reinforcing
its partnership strategy to better serve the program needs.

The Galileo positioning system is based on a constellation of
thirty satellites providing global coverage.  It will serve both
institutional needs and commercial expectations in terms of
positioning as well as precise and dependable time.  This system
will be compatible with the American GPS system.

Samir Naessany, senior vice president of Alcatel's private
communications activities and representing the Eurely
consortium, said: "Eurely is proud to welcome SFR and Capgemini.
Telecoms will play an important role in the success of Galileo.
Alcatel has been committed for the past several years in
developing solutions using the Galileo signals, which will
benefit mobile operators and their customers.  The ultimate
quality of the Galileo signals delivered to the users will allow
numerous products and services innovations, in particular in the
transport domain and in personal and property safety."

Alexandre Haeffner, COO of Capgemini added: "European services
industry leaders need to combine their skills and efforts with
Eurely promoters to support the program.  Capgemini has skills
in consulting, system integration and deployment and we are
proud to have the chance to contribute to the largest European
infrastructure program.  Galileo services will reinforce our
customers' competitiveness."

Location based services are mandatory for people on the move.
With the "it's around you" service, SFR provides its customers
in France with useful information on shops, banks and
restaurants located around their area.  The high precision and
reliability provided by Galileo will enable mobile service
providers to offer new applications based on precise locations
in order to ease their customers' life, with a simple
application of their mobile phones.

Eurely and its partners have unrivalled experience in large
space infrastructure and concessions of a commercial and an
international nature.  Eurely has a unique vision and strategy
for the institutional needs and aims to exploit the numerous
synergies with the most attractive mobile telecom and transport
markets.

Deutsche Bank is the financial adviser of the Eurely consortium.

ALCATEL: US$28 Mln Taiwan Railway Contract Under Investigation
--------------------------------------------------------------
The Taipei Prosecutor's Office is investigating Alcatel and
Siemens on suspicions of bid rigging in relation to the supply
contract the French company won from the Taiwan Railway
Administration.

Five people were arrested and held for questioning by
authorities on Friday.  Questioned were Jean-Philippe Benoist,
Alcatel's chief executive in Taiwan; Leslie Lok, president of
Siemens Ltd. Taiwan, Liu Ta-fu, aide to a ruling party
legislator, and two local businessmen.  They have been released
on bail.

According to the Financial Times, the so-called Black Gold
Investigation Centre at the Taiwan High Court Prosecutors'
Office have collected evidence that Mr. Liu and local
businessmen Wu Ding-fa and Tsai Ching-hung received payments for
helping Alcatel win the TW$940 million (US$28 million) contract.

It emerged in the investigation that Alcatel paid TW$70 million
to Mr. Liu, Mr. Tsai and Mr. Wu.  Part of the money was
suspected to have been given to Mr. Lok to encourage Siemens
Ltd. to withdraw its bid.  Mr. Liu denied receiving any
payments.  The Financial Times failed to reach the others for
comments.


PERRIER: Nestle Close to Putting up Water Brand for Sale
--------------------------------------------------------
Swiss-based company Nestle may sell its bottled water brand,
Perrier, within the year, according to just-drinks.com.

Nestle has not yet found a solution to the ongoing dispute of
Perrier and its workers, forcing it to consider divesting the
business.  Nestle said it will sell the unit if the parties fail
to settle their dispute within the year.

Andre Sembelie, spokesman of Nestle Water France, said
management has tried to find means to save Perrier like offering
early retirement to older employees; but the CGT union remains
adamant.  According to the report, the union generally opposes
the company's layoff plan to return Perrier to profitability.
Disclosed earlier in the year, this plan includes axing 365
jobs.

TCR-Europe previously said Perrier lost 35 million bottles in
April as workers nearly succeeded halting production at the
Vergeze-based plant.


VIVENDI UNIVERSAL: Canal+ Sells Sportfive Stake for EUR274 Mln
--------------------------------------------------------------
RTL Group and Canal+ Group, a Vivendi Universal subsidiary, has
completed the sale of their interests in Sportfive.  Each of RTL
Group and Canal+ has received a consideration of EUR274 million
in cash for its respective 48.85% shareholding.

Under the terms of the transaction, funds managed by Advent

in Sportfive held by RTL Group and Canal+ Group.  RTL Group

BERTELSMANN AG: Sells U.S. Office Tower for US$426.5 Million
------------------------------------------------------------
Rob Sorrentino, President and Chief Executive of Bertelsmann's
U.S. unit, confirmed the company has sold its office tower in
New York's Time Square.  The building was sold to Paramount
Group Inc. for US$426.5 million.

Mr. Sorrentino said the company sold the building to benefit
from "prime market conditions."  Germany's largest media bought
the tower for US$110 million more than 10 years ago.  "Selling
this property at this point of time at this rate was the right
thing to do," Mr. Sorrentino told Bloomberg News.

The building will house the combined music divisions of
Guetersloh, Germany-based Bertelsmann and Japan's Sony
Corporation as reported earlier by Frankfurter Allgemeine
Zeitung.  It will retain the name of Bertelsmann Building as
long as the German company remains the main tenant.


CELANESE AG: BCP Crystal Offers EUR41.92 to Buy Remaining Shares
----------------------------------------------------------------
At an extraordinary meeting on June 22, 2004, the Supervisory
Board of Celanese AG approved a domination and profit transfer
agreement, which was concluded with BCP Crystal Acquisition GmbH
& Co. KG the same day.  The contract was agreed upon because of
the group relationship between the two companies, which resulted
following the acquisition of more than 84% of outstanding shares
in Celanese AG by BCP.  The agreement is also a pre-condition
for the two companies to obtain a consolidated corporate and
business tax filing status.

As part of the domination and profit transfer agreement, BCP
will be offering cash compensation to shareholders to purchase
their shares for EUR41.92 per registered share.  BCP will also
guarantee that Celanese AG will provide those shareholders who
wish to retain their shares in Celanese AG a gross dividend of
EUR3.27 per registered share (current net dividend EUR2.89 per
registered share) for each full business year.

For the company valuation on which the level of the cash
compensation and guaranteed dividend are based, the Board of
Management of Celanese AG and the Managing Board of BCP were
advised by the financial auditors Ernst & Young.

PricewaterhouseCoopers which, in accordance with the applicable
German law, was appointed by court order to audit the domination
and profit transfer agreement, confirmed that the compensation
and the guaranteed dividend were appropriate.

The compensation offer and the guaranteed dividend were
determined using the German Institute of Auditors'(Institut der
Wirtschaftsprufer  IDW) S1 Standard, which is the legally
recognized procedure.  BCP's voluntary public tender offer, on
the other hand, was based on a market valuation of Celanese AG
considered as fair by the company after both the Board of
Management and the Supervisory Board gathered all essential
information and considered market conditions.  This offer was
accepted by a large majority of Celanese shareholders.  In the
reasoned opinions issued by the Board and the Supervisory Board
in connection with the voluntary public offer, they presented
the reasons for their determination, including two fairness
opinions one from Goldman Sachs and one from JP Morgan.

As the domination and profit transfer agreement requires
shareholder approval, Celanese AG has called an Extraordinary
General Meeting for July 30/31, 2004 to be held in Oberhausen,
Germany.  At the meeting, shareholders will also be asked to
approve a change in the company statutes in order to take
advantage of the consolidated tax filing status as soon as
possible.  BCP holds sufficient shares to ensure that such
shareholder approvals will be received.  Therefore, from
September 30, 2004 onwards, Celanese AG's business year will
begin on October 1 and end on September 30 of the following
year.  A short business year will run from January 1, 2004 until
September 30, 2004.

The invitation to the Extraordinary General Meeting, which will
contain the agenda and the text of the domination and profit
transfer agreement, will be published in the German
Elektronischer Bundesanzeiger Federal Gazette on June 25, 2004
and will be mailed to the shareholders.  It will also be
available at http://www.celanese.com.


CELANESE AG: Celanese Chemicals Ups Isononanoic Acid Production
---------------------------------------------------------------
Celanese Chemicals will utilize available capacity at its plant
in Bay City, Texas to further raise production of isononanoic
acid.  The resulting increase in output will relieve current
tightness in the market.

"By leveraging our technological know-how and optimizing
existing production capacities, we have quickly raised output
and in several weeks expect to be able to fully alleviate the
isononanoic acid shortage," said Jan Hille, Global Marketing
Manager Olefin Derivatives at Celanese Chemicals.  "We have also
taken special efforts to set up necessary logistic structures.
Until product is available from Bay City on a regular basis, we
will meet our customers' most immediate requirements with
material from our plant in Oberhausen."

Isononanoic acid is used to manufacture base-stocks for
synthetic lubricants, peroxides, paint driers and other chemical
intermediates.

                            *   *   *

In May 24, 2004, TCR-Europe reported that Standard & Poor's
Ratings Services lowered its corporate credit rating on
Frankfurt, Germany-based Celanese AG to 'B+' from 'BBB'.
Ratings remain on CreditWatch with negative implications
awaiting the approval by shareholders of the domination
agreement and profit and loss transfer agreement, and for the
domination agreement to become effective.  The corporate credit
rating on CNA Holdings Inc. was also lowered to 'B+' from 'BBB'.

With the completion of the Blackstone Group's tender offer for
Celanese shares (shareholders owning 84% of the outstanding
shares have accepted the tender offer), Celanese has begun the
process of entering into domination and profit and loss transfer
agreements, which will allow Blackstone to control the
management and share in the profits and losses of Celanese and
provide for minority shares to receive a dividend or cash
compensation for their shares.  Upon receiving the necessary
approvals, the ratings would be affirmed and removed from
CreditWatch where they were placed on December 16, 2003.

"The downgrade reflects the sharp increase in debt at Celanese
to fund the Blackstone Group's tender offer for the shares of
this specialty chemical company in a transaction valued at about
$3.5 billion," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Wesley E.
Chinn.

Standard & Poor's assigned its 'B+' senior secured bank loan
rating and its recovery rating of '3' to $608 million of
revolving credit facilities due 2009 and a $608 million term
loan due 2011.  The 'B+' rating is the same as the corporate
credit rating; this and the '3' recovery rating indicate that
bank lenders can expect meaningful (50%-80%) recovery of
principal in the event of default.  Standard & Poor's also
assigned a 'B+' corporate credit rating to BCP Caylux Holdings
Luxembourg S.C.A., which currently owns 84% of the ordinary
shares of Celanese AG, and a 'B-' rating to $1.565 billion of
senior subordinated notes due 2014 to be issued by BCP Caylux
Holdings.

BCP Caylux Holdings is a recently formed holding company and is
limited in its ability to exercise managerial control over
Celanese, including the payment of dividends and other
distributions by Celanese to BCP, until the domination agreement
has become effective.  Likewise, until that agreement takes
effect, Celanese is not an obligor on the subordinated notes and
on the issue date none of its subsidiaries will guarantee the
notes.  Proceeds from the subordinated note offering will be
used to refinance subordinated Bridge B and Bridge C loan
borrowings.  The rating on the subordinated notes reflects the
expectation that shareholders' approval will be received this
summer and the domination agreement will become effective soon
thereafter.  All ratings assume that the necessary approvals
will be obtained as planned while the CreditWatch indicates the
potential for lower ratings if this process is not completed.
Standard & Poor's also lowered the existing ratings on CNA
Holdings Inc.'s senior unsecured industrial revenue bonds to 'B'
from 'BBB', one notch below the corporate credit rating of
Celanese AG, to reflect the substantial amount of priority
claims now in the capital structure.

Prospective credit quality of Celanese AG and its subsidiaries
incorporates a considerable debt burden and aggressive financial
policies of the equity sponsor.  These weaknesses are only
partially offset by the company's solid business profile as an
integrated producer of diverse commodity and industrial
chemicals, prospects for improving cash flow generation, and
reasonable liquidity.  Significant product market shares and
competitive cost structures support good competitive positions
in its major products, and a diverse product portfolio that
includes a balance of commodity, intermediate, and more
specialized industrial chemical products serving a wide range of
end markets.  Celanese generates annual revenue of approximately
$4.7 billion, ranking the company among the larger and more
diversified global chemical businesses.

ROYAL OLYMPIC: Expected Delisting to Happen Yesterday
-----------------------------------------------------
Royal Olympic Cruise Lines Inc. (Nasdaq: ROCLE) on Friday
announced that based on notices it had received from the Nasdaq
Stock Market, the Company expects its shares to be delisted from
the Nasdaq Stock Market at the opening of business on June 28,
2004 because the Company has failed to remain in compliance with
all listing requirements.

Specifically, the Company has failed to file its annual report
on Form 20-F for the fiscal year ended November 30, 2003 by the
appointed time.  As previously announced, the Company's failure
to file its annual report arose due to the more complicated
accounting and financial position stemming from the ongoing
Article 45 process in Greece involving the Company's
subsidiaries.

The Company is currently operating two cruise ships while under
the protection from creditors afforded by the Article 45
proceeding.  However, without successful resolution of the
discussions with its creditors there can be no guarantee of
continued operations.  The Company continues to discuss
available options with its bankers and creditors within the
Greek Article 45 process.

ALITALIA SPA: May Run out of Cash by September
----------------------------------------------
State-owned airline Alitalia must move fast to have its EUR400
million (US$495 million) state-backed loan approved by the
European Union Commission.  According to the Financial Times,
the carrier's cash is enough until the middle of September only.

Alitalia had EUR260 million in cash at the end of March, but it
continues to lose an estimated EUR70 million monthly.  This,
despite improved revenues, mainly due to increased
intercontinental flights.  A company executive said revenues
from intercontinental flights rose 10% in May from a year
earlier and were projected to be "strong" during the June-August
summer period.

The company had a net loss of EUR520 million for 2003.
Accountant Deloitte & Touche previously refused to certify this
financial result in the absence of a restructuring plan to stem
these losses.  The European Union also would have to see the
rescue program before approving the crucial loan organized by
Mediobanca and other Italian lenders.


FINMATICA SPA: Downgraded to 'CC' on Refinancing Concerns
---------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings on Friday downgraded Finmatica S.p.A.'s Senior
Unsecured rating to 'CC' from 'B-'.  The rating remains on
Rating Watch Negative.  The downgrade reflects concerns over the
challenges that Finmatica faces in the refinancing of its
financial debt, the deterioration of its financial profile and
performance as well as the execution risk in connection with its
announced strategic turnaround plan.  The financial viability of
the company hinges on the support from its relationship banks.
Fitch notes that should the company fail to renegotiate the
terms of its outstanding financial debt, this would lead to a
further major downgrade.

Finmatica has announced that it needs to restructure its
financial debt as its cash generation capability is not
sufficient to honor the current debt repayment schedule.  The
substantial amount of liquidity (EUR78.6 million) as presented
at FYE03 has been progressively utilized to meet working capital
pressures and bank debt repayment.  At 31 March 2004 its net
debt stood at EUR235 million (including c. EUR60 million of debt
from Finmatica Real Estate (FRE)) compared to EUR221 million at
FYE03. Finmatica has also announced that it is seeking an
additional short-term credit line in the amount of EUR21
million.  Considering the company's EBITDA forecast as presented
in the May 2004 industrial plan, Fitch estimates that pro-forma
FYE04 net debt/EBITDA will be 19.3x, and 13.3x when excluding
FRE's debt, reflecting an extremely distressed financial
profile.  The agency notes that additional liquidity to reduce
debt could be realized through the sale of financial assets in
the amount of c. EUR10 million.

The industrial plan assumes major cost containment measures,
which should achieve EUR10 million in cost reductions in 2004 in
order to realign Finmatica's current heavy fixed and corporate
cost base.  Management has also confirmed its intention to
dispose the real estate assets, although the timing of which is
uncertain.  Fitch believes that while the plan seems to address
the structural issues necessary for the turnaround of the
company, the associated execution risk is considerable.  Fitch
will closely monitor the developments to timely assess any
potential impact on Finmatica's current 'CC' rating.

Finmatica is a quoted Italian independent software vendor with a
current share float of 44%.  Pier Luigi Crudele, the company's
founder, is the key shareholder who directly and indirectly
holds 56%.  Revenues (EUR71 million in FY03) stem from its
finance (40% of FY03 revenues), B2B/Supply Chain Management
(34%), security (11%) and other (15%) divisions.

TK ALUMINUM: First-quarter Revenues Slightly Down
-------------------------------------------------
TK Aluminum Ltd., the indirect parent of Teksid Aluminum
Luxembourg S.a.r.l., SCA, on Friday reported its unaudited
consolidated financial results for the quarter ended March 31,
2004.

Net revenues for the quarter, at EUR221.4 million, decreased by
EUR14.7 million or 6.2% compared to the quarter ended March 31,
2003.  While sales volumes increased by 3.8%, revenues declined
by EUR13.5 million due primarily to the unfavorable impact of a
price dispute and the adverse impact of changes in foreign
exchange rates.

Adjusted EBITDA was EUR12.3 million for the quarter, or 5.5% of
net revenue, compared to EUR19.3 million, or 8.2% of net
revenue, in the first quarter of 2003.  Adjusted EBITDA has been
adjusted for certain expenses which have been reimbursed by
Teksid Spa under the terms of the purchase agreement and in 2003
for certain non-recurring transaction expenses.  Reported loss
from operations equaled EUR2.8 million for the quarter versus an
operating income of EUR4.9 in Q1 2003.  Attached to this release
is a reconciliation of reported income (loss) from operations to
Adjusted EBITDA.

During the first quarter of 2004 the decrease in Adjusted EBITDA
versus 2003 was due to a negative shift in the mix of products
sold and the effect of a price dispute, which is currently under
negotiation, with a significant customer in North America.  The
positive impact of increased volumes in the quarter was more
than offset by the temporary effect of a sharp increase in North
American aluminum prices, which under contract may be passed
through to customers following a lag period of one to nine
months, and contracted price decreases which have not been fully
offset by cost reductions.

Including EUR62.7 million of cash and cash equivalents, net debt
at March 31, 2004 amounted to EUR255.1 million, a EUR9.5 million
increase from December 31, 2003, primarily due to seasonal
increases in working capital, and a EUR8.8 million decrease from
the first quarter of 2003.  Total shareholders equity equaled
EUR158.4 million, including EUR35.4 million of cumulative non-
cash losses related to foreign exchange translation (including
EUR22.1 million of Cumulative Translation Adjustment, EUR18.6 of
accumulated Foreign Exchange Losses since the acquisition and
EUR5.3 million in gains from foreign currency swaps recognized
in Other Income (Expense)).

Net capital expenditures for the first quarter of 2004 totaled
EUR15.5 million compared to EUR13.2 million in 2003.
Approximately EUR2.6 million of capital expenditures in the
first quarter of 2004 are related to items for which the Company
will be reimbursed by Teksid Spa under the terms of the purchase
agreement.

As of March 31, 2004 the Company was in full compliance with all
of the covenants of its Senior Credit Agreement.  Subsequent to
year-end the Company amended its Senior Credit Agreement to
reset financial covenant limits through the maturity of the
Senior Credit Agreement in 2008 to provide the Company with
additional long term operating flexibility.

Results are unaudited and have been presented in accordance with
accounting principles generally accepted in the United States.
The Company will make available on its Web site,
http://www.teksidaluminum.com,the TK Aluminum Ltd.  Unaudited
Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements on or before June
24, 2004.

About Teksid Aluminum

Teksid Aluminum is a leading independent manufacturer of
aluminum engine castings for the automotive industry. Our
principal products include cylinder heads, cylinder blocks,
transmission cases and suspension components.  We operate 15
manufacturing facilities in Europe, North America, South America
and Asia.  Information about Teksid Aluminum is available on our
Web site at http://www.teksidaluminum.com.

Until September 2002, Teksid Aluminum was a division of Teksid
S.p.A., which was owned by Fiat.  Through a series of
transactions completed between September 30, 2002 and November
22, 2002, Teksid S.p.A. sold its aluminum foundry business to a
consortium of investment funds led by equity investors that
include affiliates of each Questor Management Company, LLC,
JPMorgan Partners, Private Equity Partners SGR S.p.A. and AIG
Global Investment Corp.  As a result of the sale, Teksid
Aluminum is owned by its equity investors through TK Aluminum
Ltd., a Bermuda holding company.

On July 17 2003, Teksid Aluminum Luxembourg S.a.r.l., SCA issued
EUR240 million aggregate principal amount of senior notes due in
2011.  The notes were sold to qualified institutional buyers in
the United States pursuant to Rule 144A of the U.S. securities
laws and to persons outside United States pursuant to Regulation
S of the U.S. securities laws.  The proceeds of the sale were
used to repay amounts borrowed to finance the acquisition of
Teksid Aluminum and pay certain fees and expenses.

TK ALUMINUM: Rating Cut to 'CCC'; Placed on CreditWatch Negative
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Rating Services lowered its long-term
corporate credit rating on Bermuda-based aluminum auto parts
manufacturer TK Aluminum Ltd. (TKA) to 'CCC' from 'B', owing to
substantially weaker earnings in the first quarter of 2004,
which were also significantly below our expectations.

The rating on the guaranteed EUR240 million senior unsecured
notes that TKA issued through its financing unit, Teksid
Aluminum Luxembourg S.a.r.l., S.C.A. was lowered to 'CC' from
'CCC+', reflecting solely their subordination to all existing
and future priority debt.  In addition, all ratings were placed
on CreditWatch with negative implications.

"The rating downgrades and CreditWatch placement follows the
group's announcement of significantly weaker EBITDA generation
in the first quarter of 2004," said Standard & Poor's credit
analyst Martin Amann.  "We believe, therefore, that the
company's financial performance is no longer in line with a 'B'
rating category."

In addition, we are concerned about whether TKA has remained in
compliance with its financial covenants from the second quarter
of 2004 ending June 30.  The company has said it was in
compliance in the first quarter.

Although TKA's sales volumes increased by 3.8% in the first
quarter of 2004, revenues declined by EUR13.5 million, due
primarily to the unfavorable effect of a price dispute with a
significant customer in North America, and the adverse effect of
changes in foreign exchange rates.  Standard & Poor's is also
concerned about the effect this price dispute will have on the
overall financial performance of the group in the second quarter
and beyond.

In its review of the CreditWatch status, Standard & Poor' will
focus on:

(a) The company's ability to generate EBITDA in 2004 following
    the price dispute, aluminum price increases, and the
    company's operating efficiency measures;

(b) An examination of the company's financial profile; and

(c) Its liquidity and financial flexibility, in particular with
    respect to compliance with financial covenants.

"Standard & Poor's intends to resolve the CreditWatch status
once the second-quarter results have been published," said Mr.
Amann.  "The ratings could be lowered further if the company
were to breach its covenants in the second quarter, if the price
dispute cannot be resolved with reasonable conditions for TKA,
or if the company's financial profile further deteriorates in
the course of the second quarter."

ROYAL SHELL: Divests Product Distribution Chain in Portugal
-----------------------------------------------------------
Shell Petroleum Company Limited and Repsol YPF have signed a
Sale and Purchase Agreement relating to the divestment of
Shell's Oil Products businesses in Portugal, excluding the
lubricants and LPG marketing businesses.

The divestment includes a network of 303 retail service
stations, a 15% stake in Compania Logistica de Combustibles
(CLC) and distribution assets geographically spread across
Portugal.  The sale is subject to regulatory approval and
completion is expected to take place by the end of 2004.
Shell's LPG and Lubricants marketing businesses will continue to
operate in Portugal.

Rob Routs, Chief Executive Officer Shell Oil Products, said, "I
am delighted that we have been able to realize the full value of
these assets through this deal.  The transaction is consistent
with our strategy to increase the profitability of the
downstream assets through greater focus in key countries."

Shell has also completed a review of its Oil Products businesses
in Spain -- excluding the LPG, Lubricants, Marine and Aviation
businesses.  Shell is now in discussion with a number of
prospective buyers with a view to divesting its Spanish Retail
and Commercial fuels businesses and distribution assets.  A
further announcement about this deal will be made in the coming
months.


ROYAL SHELL: Details Philip Watts Compensation Package
------------------------------------------------------
Sir Philip Watts' severance payment following his resignation as
director of The Shell Transport and Trading Company, p.l.c.
(ST&T), and as an employee in March 2004 consisted of a lump sum
payment of GBP1,057,971.  This amount was based on his salary as
an employee until his normal retirement date in June 2005.  No
Director's fees are being paid for this period.  Sir Philip
received no performance-related annual bonus in respect of
2003 or 2004, and he forfeited various stock options and share
grants.

The situation for ST&T share options and grants is as follows:

(a) All 232,500 of the performance-linked stock options granted
    to Sir Philip in March 2001 have lapsed.

(b) The 427,872 shares granted to Sir Philip in August 2003
    under the Long Term Incentive Plan were forfeited.

(c) The exercise term of Sir Philip's remaining 2,847,000 stock
    options has been shortened, so that they expire five years
    after his resignation, on 2 March 2009, or earlier if the
    original expiry date was prior to 2 March 2009.  This
    adjustment is consistent with the Group's general practice
    of allowing employees to continue to hold options after
    leaving employment by mutual agreement.

(d) Half of the 885,000 stock options granted in 2002 remain
    subject to further performance conditions and may lapse.

(e) Of the remaining options that are outstanding, the value of
    the options on 308,750 shares that exceed the price upon
    grant and are currently exercisable is GBP114,237.50 at the
    current share price.

(d) The schedule for the remainder of Sir Philip's stock options
    is disclosed in the Remuneration Report of the 2003 Annual
    Report and Accounts of The Shell Transport and Trading
    Company, p.l.c.

(e) By his own choice, Sir Philip had elected to invest part of
    his previously-earned bonuses in The Shell Transport and
    Trading Company, p.l.c. shares under the Deferred Bonus
    Plan, which allows for matching shares to be granted to
    those who hold them for three years. In Sir Philip's case,
    no matching shares have been awarded.

(f) Sir Philip has the legal right to a pension of GBP584,070
    per annum under the Shell pension scheme to which he has
    contributed over the past 35 years.

ROYAL SHELL: U.S. Pension Funds File Class Action
-------------------------------------------------
Securities lawyer William Lerach on Friday added a new class
action to the growing number of lawsuits lodged against Royal
Dutch/Shell Group.

The veteran class action lawyer filed the case against the oil
company and its top executives at a New Jersey state court,
according to Reuters.

The suit is made in behalf of UNITE National Retirement Fund and
the Plumbers and Pipefitters National Pension Fund.  It alleges
that Shell executives failed to uphold their fiduciary duties
and therefore violated the new Sarbanes-Oxley U.S. corporate
reform law.  The compensation claim was not specified.

The funds are demanding the return of executive bonuses and
compensation that was given as incentive for overstated
financial and operating performance.  It also calls on the
company to consolidate its dual ownership structure, increase
accountability and give shareholders the right to name three
directors.  Shell is 60% owned by Royal Dutch Petroleum, with
the rest held by London's Shell Trading & Transport.

A Shell spokeswoman did not immediately respond to calls seeking
comment, the report said.

OPTICOM ASA: Thin Film Electronics Restructuring
------------------------------------------------
Opticom's operating subsidiary group Thin Film Electronics (TFE)
initiated a thorough review of its activities, capabilities and
budgets in May.  The purpose of the review is to restructure its
activities within the limits of Opticom's funding capability.

TFE's financial situation mandated immediate and significant
manning reductions. The negotiations with the employee unions at
Thin Film Electronics AB (TFE AB) in Linkoping, Sweden have now
been completed.  21 employees will leave TFE AB at this time,
while 22 are retained for the time being.

The retained employees will continue the work exploring the
technical and commercial prospects for TFE's memory technology.
It has also been decided to close TFE's facility in Albequeque,
New Mexico and concentrate design work in Linkoping.  The
current remaining four employees in Thin Film Electronics Inc
will leave the company.

A restructuring charge related to the manning reductions and
other resolved restructuring actions will be made in second
quarter.  Certain fixed assets will be written down.  The
amounts are not determined at this stage.

The future structure and capabilities of the TFE group will be
resolved later, depending on the results and conclusions of the
review.  The review is far reaching and at this stage nothing
has been ruled in or out.  The key results of the review,
shareholder funding of Thin Film Electronics ASA and consequent
restructuring actions will be reported as soon as they are
determined.

Asia Pacific deal including Japan, one Singaporean equities, and
one global emerging equities brief.  The deal increased its
total assets under management to about US$40.6 billion (GBP22.2
billion) as at April 30, 2004.  Its total mandate in the Asia
Pacific/Pan-Asia region is now US$6.5 billion (GBP3.6 billion)

CABLE & WIRELESS: Subsidiary Faces GBP50 Million Lawsuit
--------------------------------------------------------
Australia-Japan Cable (AJC), a telecoms firm based in Bermuda,
has lodged a multi-million dollar case against Pender, Cable &
Wireless' offshore insurance subsidiary, in the Commercial Court
in London.

AJC claims the company did not pay out on a policy covering a
project to lay submarine cable between Japan and Australia.  The
project hit delays mainly due to bad weather, causing the firm
to incur losses.  It is now claiming at least at least GBP50
million (US$92.5 million) from the company.  The case is
understood the latest in a chain of lawsuits lodged against the
Isle of Man-based firm.

Robin Russell, the chief executive of AJC, said: "We have tried
to engage Cable & Wireless about settling the claim, but they
have been unresponsive.  We trust that these proceedings will
serve as a framework for a resolution of the issue."   Cable &
Wireless said it is "vigorously contesting" the claim, according
to The Telegraph.

Although Pender's liabilities are partially covered by its
reinsurance policies, Cable & Wireless could still be faced with
a final bill for tens of millions of pounds, according to the
report.  Cable & Wireless last year was forced to shell out
GBP19 million to pay claims against Global Crossing, a telecoms
group insured by Pender.

Pender was set in 1990 as a "captive insurance" company to

CANARY WHARF: Songbird Offer Extended Until July 1
--------------------------------------------------
On 16 April 2004, Songbird announced the terms of a recommended
cash offer for the entire issued share capital of Canary Wharf.
The Offer Document, together with the AIM Document, was
subsequently posted to Canary Wharf Shareholders on 23 April
2004.  On 21 May 2004, Songbird declared that the Offer had
become unconditional in all respects and extended the Offer to 4
June 2004.  The Offer has subsequently been extended on three
further occasions, most recently until 24 June 2004.

As at 1:00 p.m. (London time) on 24 June 2004, Songbird had
received valid acceptances, and Songbird Estates plc had
acquired, a total of 386,999,647 Canary Wharf Shares,
representing approximately 66.15% of the existing issued share
capital of Canary Wharf.

Included in this total are the 85,004,663 Canary Wharf Shares
held by the Glick Entities, representing approximately 14.5% of
the issued share capital of Canary Wharf, which have been
acquired by Songbird Estates.

Included within the acceptances are those acceptances received
pursuant to the irrevocable undertaking to accept the Offer
given by companies held by a trust for the benefit of HRH Prince
Alwaleed Bin Talal Abdulaziz Al Saud and his family in respect
of 13,288,000 Canary Wharf Shares, representing approximately
2.3% of the issued share capital of Canary Wharf.  Also included
in the acceptances are those received from the former members of
the Independent Committee, George Iacobescu and Peter Anderson,
who stated in the Offer Document their intention to accept the
Offer in respect of their beneficial holdings of 3,955,001
Canary Wharf Shares, representing approximately 0.7% of the
issued share capital of Canary Wharf.

As at the close of business on 23 June 2004, the Morgan Stanley
Group was the beneficial owner of 944 Canary Wharf Shares and
held 27,295 Canary Wharf Shares on behalf of clients.  Valid
acceptances have been received by Songbird in respect of 8,804
of these Canary Wharf Shares.  As at the close of business on 23
June 2004, Goldman Sachs International was the beneficial owner
of 239 Canary Wharf Shares.  Valid acceptances have not been
received by Songbird in respect of these Canary Wharf Shares.

Save as disclosed above, neither Songbird nor any person acting,
or deemed to be acting, in concert with Songbird held any Canary
Wharf Shares or rights over Canary Wharf Shares prior to the
Offer Period and neither Songbird nor any person acting, or
deemed to be acting, in concert with Songbird has acquired or
agreed to acquire any Canary Wharf Shares or rights over Canary
Wharf Shares during the Offer Period.

                Extension of Offer to 1 July 2004

Songbird announces that the Offer will remain open for
acceptances until 1:00 p.m. (London time)/8:00 a.m. (New York
time) on 1 July 2004.  The Offer will then close unless further
extended.

As a result of the extension of the Offer, Canary Wharf
Shareholders who accept the Offer will continue to be entitled
to receive the basic consideration of 238 pence in cash and 0.57
of a Class B Share for each Canary Wharf Share.

However, although Canary Wharf Shareholders will continue to be
able to elect to vary the proportions of Class B Shares and cash
consideration they receive in respect of their Canary Wharf
Shares, the extent to which these elections will be satisfied
will depend on there being sufficient countervailing elections
for cash and Class B Shares.  As such, Canary Wharf Shareholders
are no longer guaranteed to receive 295 pence in cash per Canary
Wharf Share even if they so elect.

As permitted by the terms and conditions of the Offer, Songbird
will elect to treat elections received (or validated or
completed) during the period from 1:00 p.m. (London time)/8:00
a.m. (New York time) on 24 June 2004 until 1:00 p.m. (London
time)/8:00 a.m. (New York time) on 1 July 2004 as forming a
separate pool of elections for the purposes of determining the
cash and Class B Shares available to meet such elections.  The
number of Class B Shares that will therefore be made available
to meet elections made after 1:00 p.m. (London time)/8:00 a.m.
(New York time) on 24 June 2004 until 1:00 p.m. (London
time)/8:00 a.m. (New York time) on 1 July 2004 for the purposes
of paragraph 6 of Part B of Appendix 1 to the Offer will be
determined based upon the number of valid acceptances received
(or validated or completed) during that period.

Settlement of the consideration due to Canary Wharf Shareholders
who accept the Offer after 1:00 p.m. (London time)/8:00 a.m.
(New York time) on 24 June 2004 will be made within 14 days of a
valid acceptance.

Canary Wharf Shareholders who wish to accept the Offer, and who
have not done so, should complete their Form(s) of Acceptance in
accordance with the instructions printed thereon, whether or not
their Canary Wharf Shares are held in certificated or
uncertificated form, and return them by post or (during normal
business hours) by hand to Capita IRG Plc, Corporate Actions,
P.O. Box 166, The Registry, 34 Beckenham Road, Beckenham, Kent
BR3 4TH as soon as possible and, in any event, so as to be
received by no later than 1:00 p.m. (London time)/8:00 a.m. (New
York time) on 1 July 2004.

Additional copies of the Offer Document, Forms of Acceptance and
the AIM Document can be obtained by telephoning Capita on 0870

CORUS GROUP: S&P Retains 'B' Ratings, Stable Outlook
----------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services said on Friday that its
ratings and outlook on U.K.-based steel consortium Corus Group
PLC (B/Stable/B) remain unchanged following a positive trading
update from the company.

Corus expects to report a significantly stronger operating
profit year-on-year of more than GBP125 million (US$228 million)
in the first half of 2004, helped by better market conditions
and benefits from restructuring.

Although this is a positive development, a significant gap in
profitability still remains for Corus compared with key European
competitors such as Arcelor S.A. (BBB/Stable/A-2) and
ThyssenKrupp AG (BB+/Stable/B), which have also reported
stronger earnings in 2004 at this favorable point in the steel
price cycle.

EGG PLC: Capital One Gaining Ground with GBP1.4 Billion Bid
-----------------------------------------------------------
U.S. credit card company Capital One is understood frontrunner
in the race to acquire Egg plc, the internet bank controlled by
Prundential.

Capital One's GBP1.4 billion bid for Egg turned out as MBNA, the
world's largest independent credit card lender, took time
discussing prices with Prudential, which owns 79% of Egg.

Egg was successful with its credit card operation in the U.K.,
cornering nearly 6% of the U.K. market with 2.7 million in
customers.  But a venture in France with its "La Carte Egg"
credit card in 2002 turned out a disaster.  Figures failed to
meet expectations, forcing it to almost double its investment
budget and delay a target for breaking even by a year to 2005.

Each Tuesday edition of the TCR-Europe contains a list of
companies with insolvent balance sheets based on the latest
publicly available balance sheet available to our editors at the
time of publication.  At first glance, this list may look like
the definitive compilation of stocks that are ideal to sell
short.  Don't be fooled.  Assets, for example, reported at
historical cost net of depreciation may understate the true
value of a firm's assets.  A company may establish reserves on
its balance sheet for liabilities that may never materialize.
The prices at which equity securities trade in public market are
determined by more than a balance sheet solvency test.
