NIROS TELECOMMUNICATIONS: Telenor Takeover Stays Bankruptcy
-----------------------------------------------------------
Niros Telecommunications said its reconstruction has been
carried out successfully.  Its new owner is Telenor Connect AB
from Sweden.

The new legal entity formed from the firm will operate under the
name of Niros Communications A/S and will ensure the production
and further development of the existing product portfolio.
Company contact details, such as address, homepage, telephone
and telefax numbers will remain.

The company apologizes deeply for the inconvenience of the break
in its normal operation to partners and customers.  In order not
to delay deliveries unnecessarily, it invites clients to place
new orders to the new company as quickly as possible.  This also
applies for non-delivered orders placed before June 21, 2004 to
the old company.  Niros Communications will not handle orders
made to the old company.

Niros is looking forward to return to normal service and
continue close and positive business relationship with
customers.  In the near future, its ownership will be further
strengthened by members of the management and other investors.

VALIANCE FIDUCIAIRE: Managers Seek Cash Injection from UBS
----------------------------------------------------------
A Valiance Fiduciaire delegation last week asked the French
government's inter-ministerial restructuring committee to help
the company avoid bankruptcy, Les Echos says.  Another group of
managers went to Zurich to persuade Swiss bank UBS, the group's
majority stakeholder, to pour in fresh capital into the company.

Swedish company Groupe 4 Falck nearly took over Valiance
Fiduciaire with an investment of EUR40 million, but pulled out
from the deal after its condition, that UBS bail out the
company, was not met.  The works council will meet today.  The
company is the security van arm of French services group
Valiance.

DAIMLERCHRYSLER AG: Reaches Agreement with Works Council
--------------------------------------------------------
After difficult negotiations, the management of DaimlerChrysler
AG and employee representatives came to an agreement regarding
future product decisions.  The aim of the "Employment Pact" is
to improve the competitiveness of the German production
locations of DaimlerChrysler AG, thus securing current jobs.

In total, savings of EUR500 million annually are being aimed
for.  Various measurements ensure and improve the competitive
and innovative capabilities, as well as the investment
requirements of the company.  Furthermore, both parties consider
it important to create the necessary framework to be able to
make medium-term product decisions in favor of the German
production locations.

The over-all solution agreed upon consists of several
components:

(a) Encompassing repositioning of the remuneration structures
    taking into consideration the adoption of the ERA --
    collective agreement from 2007 on.

(b) Reduction of the impact of tariff characteristics specific
    to Baden -Wuerttemberg and adaption to the conditions of for
    example Bremen.

(c) Labor market oriented working time and compensation
    regulations for industrial services functions waiving the
    sourcing out of these areas.

(d) Flexible utilization of personnel capacities as well as
    adjustments of employment levels through assignments of
    young skilled workers and temporary workers to an internal
    personnel agency ("DC Move").

(e) Acceleration of technology and product development processes
    through the implementation of the 40-hour working week in
    all development and planning departments.

Mercedes Car Group Member of the Board of Management Professor
Jurgen Hubbert: "Thanks to this agreement, we are able to decide
on investments for the next generation of the C-Class and the E
Class as well as in the component sector for the German plants.
With this, it has been possible to avoid backlog of employment
due to operative planning in Sindelfingen, Unterturkheim and
Mannheim and to guarantee employment until the year 2012.  At
the same time, this agreement will set the course for an
increase in productivity and efficiency and will strengthen the
long-term competitiveness of the Mercedes Car Group."

Human Resources Member of the Board of Management, Gunther Fleig
stresses: "The agreement consistently takes advantage of the
possibilities to improve conditions for investments and thus
employment, which the collective bargaining agreement, concluded
in February, is offering.  We created an encompassing
reformative agreement which puts compensation, working times and
work flexibility on a new basis while decisively contributing to
strengthen the competitiveness of our workforce."

                            *   *   *

FRANKFURTER SPARKASSE: Helaba to Become New Owner
-------------------------------------------------
Landesbank Hessen-Thuringen Girozentrale (Helaba), the German
public-sector regional bank, is to acquire cash-strapped savings
bank Frankfurter Sparkasse (Fraspa), Financial Times Deutschland
reports.

The purchase price is yet unknown, but Frankfurt's municipal
treasurer, Horst Hemzal, says the whole bank could be worth EUR1
billion.  Fraspa requires fresh capital after being hit by value
adjustments last year.  Internal squabbles are adding to its
troubles.  Polytechnische Gesellschaft currently owns 60% of the
bank.  The municipality of Frankfurt holds the remaining 40%.
They will retain only less than 20% following the completion of
the selloff.  Fraspa will become a public limited company after
the acquisition.  It will retain a separate identity, and
operate as an independent subsidiary of Helaba.


WESTLB AG: Banks Band to Establish US$1 Bln Reserve Funds
---------------------------------------------------------
The savings banks associations in North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW)
and WestLB AG are strengthening their cooperation with the
establishment of two reserve funds.  The funds will be used to
support the member savings banks or WestLB in the event of their
getting into financial difficulties.  After WestLB the Savings
Banks and Giro Associations of the Rhineland and Westphalia-
Lippe gave their formal approval to the scheme on Wednesday.

"The establishment of the reserve funds underlines the close
cohesion between the savings banks in North Rhine-Westphalia and
WestLB," said WestLB Chairman Dr. Thomas Fischer in Dusseldorf.

With effect from October 1, 2004, the two associations and
WestLB AG will establish two reserve funds with a total volume
of EUR500 million each.  This amount will comprise liquid funds
of EUR250 million and an additional funding obligation of the
same amount.

The two associations and WestLB will each contribute EUR12.5
million annually until the targeted amount has been reached.
The reserve funds will complement the regional support funds of
the savings banks and the security reserve of the Landesbanken
and Girozentralen with the German Savings Banks and Giro
Association.

WestLB and the savings banks associations expect that the
establishment of the reserve funds will underpin the ratings of
the Bank and the savings banks in North Rhine-Westphalia.


WESTLB AG: Rating Upgraded on Stronger Liquidity Support
--------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services on Thursday raised its rating
on the senior unsecured unguaranteed debt issues (unguaranteed
rating) of Germany-based bank WestLB AG to 'A-' from 'BBB+'.

"The rating action follows the decisions by WestLB and its
majority owners -- Rheinischer Sparkassen- und Giroverband
(RSGV) and Westfalisch-Lippischer Sparkassen- und Giroverband
(WLSGV) -- to establish two regional protection schemes to
support member institutions and protect their creditors in times
of stress," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Stefan Best.

It also reflects the savings banks' ability to support WestLB
should this ever be necessary, and Standard & Poor's expectation
that the State of North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW; AA/Stable/A-1+)
will remain committed as guarantor and ensure that a decision by
the European Commission on the repayment of alleged state aid
will not have negative implications on WestLB's capital
strength.  The two schemes will become effective on October 1,
2004.  RSGV and WLSGV are the two associations of the savings
banks in NRW.

In Standard & Poor's view, the implementation of two joint
regional protection schemes for WestLB and its owner savings
banks further underpins the key drivers supporting cohesiveness,
such as:

(a) The statutory guarantee (Gewahrtragerhaftung) of the owner
    savings banks for WestLB's existing obligations (jointly and
    severally with WestLB's public sector guarantors);

(b) The savings banks' majority ownership of WestLB and their
    decision to increase WestLB's capital by EUR1.5 billion
    until September 30, 2004; and

(c) The extension of operational ties to jointly exploit market
    opportunities in the State of NRW.

Furthermore, the new protection schemes underpin the savings
banks' long-term commitment to implement the revised cooperation
strategy based on contractual agreements, and support WestLB's
transformation process.

The two schemes -- WestLB and the RSGV, and WestLB and the WLSGV
-- amount to EUR500 million each (EUR1 billion in total).
WestLB will contribute EUR250 million to each scheme.

"Standard & Poor's believes that the combination of all these
positive developments allows it to raise its unguaranteed
ratings on WestLB close to the level of our assessment of its
owner savings banks on an aggregated basis, which also considers
their majority ownership and contingent liability from the
guarantee for WestLB," said Mr. Best.  "This is because the
positive factors largely offset concerns about WestLB's
currently weak financial profile and wholesale-oriented business
model, and the lack of cooperation and cohesiveness in the
past."

Primary negative rating factors for WestLB are its still weak
financial profile, which compares unfavorably with its
Landesbank peers and international corporate banks; its reliance
on low-cost wholesale funding; and the challenges caused by the
restructuring process and implementation of the revised strategy
to cope with the abolition of state guarantees in July 2005.
The rating also reflects that the joint cooperation model has
been agreed only recently, which means that business ties to
savings banks and newly targeted midsize corporates or private
banking customers need to be developed.

Primary factors that Standard & Poor's will monitor, and which
would support a view of WestLB and its owner savings banks as a
single economic entity in the future, are the strengthening of
the level of integration, cooperation, and solidarity among the
banks over time.  Furthermore, Standard & Poor's will regularly
review WestLB's transformation process, the progress in
implementing the joint strategy, and the savings banks'
performance, and will update its ratings as appropriate.


WESTLB AG: New S&P Rating Confirms Success of Strategy
------------------------------------------------------
WestLB AG welcomed the upgrading of its shadow rating to A- by
Standard & Poor's as a major success for the Bank and its
owners.

"Right from the outset it was our aim to obtain an 'A' category
shadow rating for WestLB before the state guarantees for
Landesbanks are eliminated in July 2005.  The fact that we have
achieved this so soon is an endorsement of our strategy.  We are
delighted," said WestLB Chairman Dr. Thomas R. Fischer in
Dusseldorf.

Dr. Fischer announced that WestLB will continue to press ahead
with the implementation of its business model in close
cooperation with the savings banks.  "We will now devote our
entire efforts to achieving good results for our owners, our
clients and the financial markets.  This will lay the foundation
for further improvements in our rating," the Chairman added.

WestLB will publish its half-year results for 2004 on August 12.

CAPITALIA SPA: Board Approves Acquisition of RCS Stake
------------------------------------------------------
The Capitalia S.p.A. Board of Directors that met on Wednesday
under the Chairmanship of Mr. Cesare Geronzi took note of the
increase in the participation in RCS Mediagroup S.p.A. to 2.05%
and approved the transfer of the holding to the investment
portfolio, as a consequence of its strategic nature.

This participation will allow the Group to join the RCS
Mediagroup shareholders' pact currently being formed.  The Board
also approved to distribute 6,505,000 warrants to Group
employees to buy Capitalia shares.  These warrants are part of
the plan to grant 20,000,000 stock options approved by the
Extraordinary Shareholders' Meeting on May 16, 2002.

The Chief Executive Officer, Matteo Arpe, renounced his own
portion of warrants so as to increase the total amount available
for distribution, also in consideration of the fact that
numerous new professional managers have entered the Group over
the last year.

During the Meeting, the Board has also examined the
communication activities aimed at the financial markets, which
accompanied the realization of the 2003-2005 Business Plan.  The
results attained by management permitted a significant growth in
the value of the Company's stock, which registered as well a
notable increase of institutional investors in the shareholder
base.  Institutional investors, in particular those outside of
Italy, raised their share in the Company's share capital from
14% in October 2002 to 29% at June 30, 2004.  It was also
determined to start next September 10 the Roadshow for the
presentation of the first half 2004 results.


CIRIO FINANZIARIA: Identifies Bidders for Cirio-De Rica
-------------------------------------------------------
Four Italian companies are currently in the running to acquire
Cirio-De Rica, a well-known producer of tomato paste in Italy.
According to Agenzia Giornalistica Italia, the companies are
Conserve Italia, Divella, Doria and Stif.  Stif is an ad-hoc
company set up by Veneto entrepreneurs.  It is backed by an
unnamed bank.

Special Commissioner Mario Resca says he is confident he will be
able to announce a bidder for Cirio-De Rica, may be August 5.
Mr. Resca did not disclose how much was offered, but he
admitted the EUR150 billion turnover of the company is a "useful
parameter."  He is positive the commendable performance of the
operation will give them leverage in negotiations.


LIMA SPA: Creditors Clear Way for Sale to Hornby
------------------------------------------------
Hornby plc, the models and collectibles group, says its planned
purchase of Lima S.p.A. is proceeding according to plan.

In a statement prior to the company's annual general meeting,
the company said the Italian Court already published the terms
of the 'Concordato Preventivo' or Creditors Agreement on 16 July
2004.

Chairman Neil Johnson is to say: "Under the terms of this legal
process we remain confident that our acquisition of the Lima
assets will be completed before the end of 2004, according to
plan."

In May, Hornby offered EUR8 million or approximately GBP5.3
million to acquire certain assets of Lima, a model railway based
in Vicenza and Brescia.  Lima went into liquidation during
summer 2003.  Prior to its liquidation Lima, manufactured all of
its products in Europe.

For the financial year to December 31, 2002, the turnover and
loss before taxation attributable to the assets being considered
for acquisition by Hornby was EUR9.2 million (GBP6.1 million)
and EUR7.1 million (GBP4.7 million), before exceptional income
of EUR2.8 million (GBP1.8 million), respectively.  As at July
14, 2003, the net book value of those assets was EUR6.9 million
(GBP4.6 million).

BRE BANK: 'D/E' Individual Rating Affirmed; Outlook Positive
------------------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings on Thursday affirmed BRE Bank's Individual rating
at 'D/E' and removed it from Rating Watch Evolving.  The Long-
term, Short-term and Support ratings are affirmed at 'BBB+',
'F2', and '2' respectively.  The Long-term rating remains on
Positive Outlook.

As a result of the capital increase of PLN550 million which took
place in June 2004, BRE's consolidated regulatory capital ratio
was between 11-12% at end-June.  This ratio is much improved on
the 7.63% reported by the bank at the end of the first quarter
of 2004, which caused Fitch to downgrade the Individual Rating
to D/E in May and to place it on Rating Watch Evolving.

This level of capital was below minimum regulatory requirements,
though this was communicated to the regulator along with the
anticipated capital increase.  The capital increase indicates
the bank's strong ability to access new capital as well as the
support it can expect to receive in case of need from its
majority shareholder, Commerzbank (rated 'A-' Positive Outlook).
Commerzbank holds a 72% stake in BRE, unchanged following the
capital increase and includes it in the list of subsidiaries
covered by its Patronatserklaerung (declaration of backing)
published in its 2003 annual report.

Nonetheless, Fitch remains concerned by the strong growth in
loans planned by the bank, which it needs in order to reach
critical mass and which will place additional strain on
capitalization.  Part of the capital increase (PLN87 million)
has already been utilized by the bank to acquire the balance of
50% in its mortgage arm, Rheinhyp-BRE (completed in July,
bringing total ownership to 100%) and it is not expected that
the consolidated total capital ratio in the medium-term will be
much higher than minimum regulatory requirements.  There are
also some concerns that the fast loan growth may result in
increased credit risk, which, combined with the low spreads
charged by the bank, may not be remunerating risk adequately.

The total capital ratio also includes a higher level of
subordinated debt than previously.  It is Fitch's understanding
that the subordinated debt is entirely held by Commerzbank and
it can now be utilized to a further extent following the
increase in core equity and equates to the maximum 50% of Tier 1
capital in the total capital calculations.

In its credit report published Thursday, Fitch highlights some
of the weaknesses that remain in the bank, apart from its tight
capital base.  The domestic environment is still volatile
despite Poland's accession to the E.U. in May 2004 and market
risk is high compared to other domestic banks, reflecting the
bank's strong trading and investment operations.

Although BRE's proprietary equity portfolio has been reduced
markedly in 2003 an exposure of c.PLN695 million remains,
including primarily to non listed companies, where valuations
are difficult.  On the other hand, Fitch has noted that there
has been a tightening in the cooperation between the bank and
its majority shareholder as well as an improvement in reserve
coverage of classified loans.  BRE's asset quality has remained
better than the weak Polish average although part of this stems
from the strong loan growth, mentioned above, at a time when a
number of its peers have been shrinking their credit exposure.

YUKOS OIL: Foreign Creditor Banks Hold Back Demand for Payment
--------------------------------------------------------------
Foreign banks which declared Yukos Oil in default early in July
are not in a hurry to demand payment despite a warning from the
company it could go bankrupt soon, Reuters observes.

According to the report, the banks are still studying various
scenarios.  They have been talking with each other and with
Yukos.  They declared the company in default in July, but have
not insisted on a payment until now.   Last week, the oil
company warned it may have to file for bankruptcy as early as
the first half of next month after Russia seized its main
production unit, Yuganskneftdgaz.

Reuters sources say that while the company continued to pump oil
and pay interest on its debt the banks would not be under
pressure to take further action.   The banks that arranged
Yukos' loan include Citigroup and France's Societe Generale.
Both declined to comment.  Reuters also gathered from London-
based traders that no international banks have so far tried to
sell Yukos loans despite interests from distressed-debt
investors.

IZAR: Unions Challenge Premise for Shipyard Selloff
---------------------------------------------------
Local trade unions CC OO and MCA-UGT are seeking an urgent
meeting with the government to discuss the 'viability plan'
announced by the finance ministry last week.

According to Expansion, the unions want the Spanish government
to provide them a timetable for negotiations with individual
shipyards.  The unions are asking the state to retain both the
civil and military divisions of Izar and concentrate on the
construction of ships with greater value.  They believe the
closure or reduction in scale of Izar shipyards will not assure
the viability of the company.

ABBEY NATIONAL: Resolution Life Interested in Closed Life Funds
---------------------------------------------------------------
Two Abbey National closed life funds are among the potential
target for acquisition by cash shell Resolution Life Group, The
Scotsman reports.

Resolution has already purchased Royal & SunAlliance's closed
fund.  In a memo, Resolution admitted it might pursue a "second
transaction," listing Abbey's Scottish Mutual and Scottish
Provident among the 14 funds it is eyeing.  Other targets are
HHG Group, which operates the closed Pearl, London Life and NPI
funds, Barclays Life, and Mutual/Provident.  According to the
memo, talks are ongoing with owners of these funds.

Abbey is believed to have considered the two divisions surplus
to requirements.  Abbey Chief Executive Luqman Arnold is
currently returning the bank to its consumer-banking roots after
a disastrous expansion into corporate lending.

CABLE & WIRELESS: Chairman's Update at Thursday's Annual Meeting
----------------------------------------------------------------
Cable & Wireless Chairman Richard Lapthorne said at the
company's Annual General Meeting on Thursday: "This time last
year I shared with you the challenges we had faced in the first
half of calendar 2003.

"Our management had been changed, with a new Chief Executive
Officer and Chief Operating Officer, and our Non-executives were
largely new also.  Since then, Charles Herlinger has joined us
as Chief Financial Officer and Lord Robertson as a part-time
Deputy Chairman.  His primary role is to manage our relations
with government partners around the world.  Janet Morgan retires
today [Thursday] and we intend to make further non-executive
appointments over the coming months.

"I mentioned Lord Robertson's role; we provide telecom services
around the world, and in so doing we are running strategic
national assets.  Understanding the objective of our host
governments, working with them as partners within a framework
where we see them as a customer for our experience and skills is
key to success in our business and in our ability to expand our
presence.

"This time last year, we had also recently reported the result
of our discussions with the Inland Revenue to close U.K. tax
computations covering the previous ten years.  We closed those
computations, you will recall, within the sums already set aside
as provisions on the balance sheet and there was no change to
the profit and loss account.  A tax warranty, which we had given
to Deutsche Telekom when we sold our U.K. mobile business One 2
One, was not needed and fell away.  A warranty is not a
liability, not even a contingent liability, it is a guarantee by
the Company that a forward-looking statement made in good faith
will turn out to be correct.  In this case that Deutsche Telekom
would not inherit any tax liabilities with its purchase of One 2
One.  It did not.

"The issue of the tax warranty became bound up in a Class Action
in the United States which was defended and won. Inevitably, the
plaintiffs have lodged an appeal and we shall continue to manage
this issue. For the script on this one, read John Grisham's 'The
King of Torts'.  Plaintiffs are particularly clever at supplying
journalists with so-called scoops and we have experienced two of
these already in the U.K.

"Without doubt the major structural event in the company last
year was the exit from the United States and our experience with
Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.  Potential U.S. buyers
insisted the operations there enter Chapter 11 so that they
could buy a lower cost operation once certain financial
obligations had been discarded with agreement of the Courts.

"It was interesting to observe how the world paused to give
Cable & Wireless U.S. the time to re-group and re-launch under
new ownership free from the sometimes-vicious spirals on U.K.
quoted companies trying to do the same thing.  There was no
panic among customers or suppliers; just recognition of the
rules of the game.

"When Francesco Caio joined Cable & Wireless he made it clear
that we had to look after our customers properly.  We spent
GBP50 million on establishing a tailor-made network in the
United States to protect our customers terminating calls there.
Hardly any customers have suffered degradation of service.

"Corporate governance continues to change, with still more focus
on trying to find standard rules to drive risk out of equity
investments.  A process, which is economically impossible.
Managing a business means taking decisions based on incomplete
and imprecise information.  Most incorrect decisions are
indefensible using 20/20 hindsight as a tool.  The trouble is,
as a tool, it's not available when decisions are being made.

"I am concerned that the expectations being created of what
input-based governance can do are being set too high.  On page
63 of our Report and Accounts, Graham Howe, the Senior
Independent Director, has reported on how the Independent
Directors regarded our corporate governance last year, how they
concentrated on output measures."

Graham Howe said: "The Independent Directors meet three times
during the year in addition to Board meetings to formally
discuss governance issues -- once with the Chairman and Chief
Executive Officer present, once with the Chairman present, and
once on their own.  After the third meeting, as Senior
Independent Director, I provided feedback to the Board on the
Independent Directors' collective views of:

(a) The perceived quality of the relationship between the
    Chairman and the Chief Executive Officer;

(b) The degree of openness between the Chief Executive Officer
    and the Board;

(c) The visibility of checks and balances within the Executive
    Directors' team; and

(d) Whether all questions asked by the Non-executive Directors
    in the Board have been adequately addressed.

"From January to the beginning of April 2003, the Company was
searching for a new Chief Executive Officer under the guidance
of the Chairman, Richard Lapthorne.  During this period, the
Chairman effectively led the Executive management in the running
of the business.

"With the appointment of Francesco Caio as Chief Executive
Officer on 4 April 2003 and the appointment of an entirely new
Executive team, there has been a conscious effort by the
Chairman to step back and create the necessary space for the
Chief Executive Officer to run the business.  The Chairman and
the Chief Executive Officer have complementary skills and their
relationship is a good one.

"The Chief Executive Officer is by nature open with the Board
and no circumstances have arisen during the year where the Board
doubted this.  The year has been characterized by the sheer
quantity of issues needing to be addressed.  This has sometimes
led to crowded agendas and there have been many additional
meetings.

"The company has seen a significant amount of organizational
change during the past year with the appointment of an entirely
new Executive team.  Throughout this period of change, the
primary governance checks and balances were managed by the
Chairman and the Chief Executive Officer with the appropriate
level of support from the Board of Directors, its principal
committees (in particular the Audit Committee) and the senior
management team.

"There have been no questions raised at the Board or its
committees that have been inadequately addressed by the
Executive Directors.  This is not to say that all questions were
capable of being answered fully at the time.  The company was
managing itself through risk and uncertain situations where
knowledge grew over time.

"Despite this period of change for the company, through the
significant efforts of the Board of Directors, its principal
committees and the senior management team, the Independent
Directors are satisfied that the appropriate corporate
governance controls have been effective during the year ended 31
March 2004."

Mr. Lapthorne adds: "So far I have been talking for some time
and I haven't yet addressed the task of running Cable &
Wireless' operations.  Fortunately, that is what our Board
spends its internal time on.  We believe that good corporate
governance flows naturally from open robust discussion of the
business.

"Francesco and his team are one year into a three-year program
to position Cable & Wireless for a prosperous future.  Progress
from now on will appear incremental, but that's what the real
world is about.

"Last year, we announced the suspension of payments of dividends
for a year to provide additional financial flexibility as we
managed ourselves through the uncertainties facing us.  I
promised to reinstate the dividend once we had been able to
further assess the costs of exiting the United States and
restructuring the United Kingdom business.  Also to reinstate it
at a level consistent with the prospects for the Group.  As a
result of the progress made we have recommended a dividend of
3.15p, made up of a 1.05p interim and a 2.10p final effectively
re-instating the dividend six months earlier than we had
previously expected."

add three more flights to the existing 22 routes in Luton to

the next few weeks.

In Germany, the budget carrier will launch four new routes this

EGG PLC: First-half Loss Down to GBP4 Million
---------------------------------------------
The Group made a profit of GBP1 million in the second quarter
leading to an overall loss before tax for the first half of 2004
of GBP4 million down from a loss of GBP23 million in the same
period last year.

The U.K. business has delivered a sound performance in the first
half of the year despite increased competition and rising
interest rates.  We achieved a profit of GBP35 million and we
grew our customer base by a further 292,000 giving us a total of
almost 3.5 million.  Unsecured lending balances continued to
grow strongly, with record personal loan drawdowns of over
GBP1.1 billion in the first six months.

As we announced last week, we have begun to take the necessary
steps to withdraw from the French market.   We will ensure that
this process is effected as sensitively, respectfully and
efficiently as possible for our people, our customers and our
shareholders.

Looking forward we are focused on our successful U.K. business.
Research indicates Egg's existing customers have an
exceptionally high propensity to buy further products from us.
We plan to invest further in our brand, in targeted acquisition
and in our cross-sales capability in the second half of the year
to augment our core strengths and drive additional value from
our customer base.

Chief Executive Paul Gratton said: "The Group made a profit of
GBP1 million in the second quarter leading to an overall loss
before tax for the first half of 2004 of GBP4 million, down from
a loss of GBP23 million in the same period last year.

"The U.K. business has delivered a sound performance in the
first half of the year despite increased competition and rising
interest rates.  We achieved a profit of GBP35 million and we
grew our customer base by a further 292,000 giving us a customer
base of almost 3.5 million.

"Within unsecured lending in the U.K. we have seen strong net
lending growth of GBP559 million in the first half taking total
balances to GBP5.35 billion up 12% on last year-end.  Cross
selling personal loans into our credit card customer base
remains highly successful, delivering record sales volumes with
over GBP1.1 billion disbursed in the first six months this year.

"Revenues are growing steadily quarter on quarter and have
increased some 19% on the same period last year.  Net interest
income reduced slightly in the second quarter given the
increased pressure on interest-bearing balance growth and
margins created by competition and rising base rates
respectively.

"Other income was almost GBP50 million in Q2 and has been
growing strongly this year, primarily due to sales of protection
policies for balances outstanding on loans and cards.  We are
keeping tight control on costs and credit quality remains good
with provision levels reflecting the continuing growth in the
unsecured lending portfolio, the stage in the life cycle of the
card and loan books and the increasing proportion of personal
loans in the book.

"In France, as we announced last week, we have begun to take the
necessary steps to withdraw from the market.  Our search for a
strategic partner, which was started in October last year, was
superseded by Prudential considering proposals for its
shareholding in Egg and therefore throughout the first half of
the year we have been managing discretionary expenditure tightly
as we await the conclusion of that process.  This is reflected
in the significant reduction in losses in the first half.  We
expect the pre-tax cost of closing Egg France to be
approximately EUR170 million (GBP113 million).

"We are focused on our successful U.K. business.  Research
indicates Egg's existing customers have an exceptionally high
propensity to buy further products from us.  We plan to invest
further in our brand, in targeted acquisition and in our cross
sales capability during the second half augmenting our core
strengths and seeking to drive additional value from our
customer base.  In addition we will be undertaking a review of
our cost base to ensure it is focused on our key priorities.

"Egg remains intent on helping people understand and manage
their money more effectively through relevant innovation in
technology.  Egg Money Manager, our account aggregation service,
now has almost 250,000 registered users, making us the largest
aggregation provider in Europe.

"With the arrival of Chip and PIN in the U.K., Egg has recently
launched PIN Browser, believed to be a world first, which offers
a secure means for Egg customers to view their PIN number online
using leading-edge technology.  This unique service will enable
customers to access their PIN number at any time and also reduce
the administration process and therefore resource that would
otherwise have to be provided.

"Looking forward we expect strong competition and margin
pressure to remain a feature of the U.K. credit card market for
the foreseeable future.  However we are confident that the Egg
brand, our strong relationship with our customers, our ability
to segment and target the right consumers with our marketing,
our dominance in the digital channel and our increasing ability
to cross sell additional products leaves us well positioned for
further success in this market.

"Egg remains well capitalized and the Board believes that future
retained profits at group level and other capital management
options available to Egg should enable us to grow the business
in line with our plans and maintain our tier 1 capital ratio in
our target range of 7% to 9%.

"The past six months have been difficult for Egg with the
uncertainty created by the potential sale of the group.  However
we are unwavering in our belief in Egg's potential and the
assets we have built.  We enter the second half of the year with
confidence and look forward to further developing our U.K.
business."

FIRST STATE: Dissolves Global Technology and Communications Fund
----------------------------------------------------------------
The Board of Directors of First State Global Umbrella Fund plc
announces that due to the failure to attract sufficient
investment on an ongoing basis since the launch of First State
Global Technology and Communications Fund in October 2002 (in
order to render the continued administration of the Fund a
viable investment proposition for Shareholders), the Directors
have resolved to terminate the Fund, in accordance with Article
17(2) of the Company's Articles of Association with effect from
15 October 2004.

The Directors have resolved that it is in the best interests of
the Shareholders to transition the Fund entirely to cash.
Accordingly, the First State Investments (Hong Kong) Ltd. (the
Investment Manager) has been instructed in the interim period
between the date of this announcement and the Termination Date
to liquidate the Fund's portfolio.  All net cash proceeds
derived from the realization of the Fund will be distributed to
the Shareholders in proportion to their respective interests in
the Fund in accordance with the Articles.

The Directors wish you to note that with effect from 15 July
2004, no further subscriptions will be accepted into the Fund.

The Directors have offered the Shareholders of the Fund these
options in connection with the termination:

(a) Shareholders may receive net cash proceeds derived from the
    realization of the Fund in proportion to their respective
    interests in the Fund.  Payment of the net cash proceeds
    will be made in the same manner as payment of redemption
    proceeds which, will normally be sent within three to seven
    business day after the Termination Date.  No further action
    will be required if a Shareholders opts for the cash option.

(b) Shareholders may switch their investment in the Fund into
    Class I Shares of other sub-funds of the company in issue
    free of sales charge on any Dealing Day prior to the
    Termination Date.  Any switching requests received by
    the Administrator or the Investment Manager before the
    Dealing Deadline namely 10:00 a.m. (Dublin time) on a
    Dealing Day will be dealt with at the Net Asset Value
    applicable to that Dealing Day.

(c) Shareholders are also entitled to redeem their shares in the

MARKS & SPENCER: New Management to Overhaul Existing Strategies
---------------------------------------------------------------
Marks & Spencer's new boss, Stuart Rose, is ditching "strategic
initiatives" engineered by previous management, a memo that
leaked to the media says.

According to The Telegraph, Britain's biggest retailer will no
longer pursue the firm's project code-named Diamond intended to
improve the efficiency of the group's food stores.  It means the
end to the firm's Lifestore concept stores and other M&S sub-
brands.  The rollout of more outlets will be "stopped as soon as
possible," the memo from Director Charles Wilson says.

Plans to be shelved also include the next-generation barcode
project promoted by previous chief executive Roger Holmes.  But
far advanced projects will be pursued, such as an unnamed
"strategic food project."

Mr. Rose will also go forward with a plan to cut 650 jobs at its
Baker Street headquarters in London.  The axing is understood a
preparation for a total exit from the premises.  The document
seems to suggest that projects to improve the management of
stock and cut costs will be prioritized, the report says.  The
news follows Mr. Rose's successful defense against Philip
Green's GBP9.1 billion takeover attempt.


MASTERLINK MANAGEMENT: Appoints Rothman Pantall Administrator

MFI: Management Buyout Talks Swirl as H1 Profit Drops Nearly 50%
----------------------------------------------------------------
Furniture retailer MFI reported an almost 50% slide in first-
half profits due to poor performance in the U.K. and shortfall
in orders, the Telegraph reports.

The company's profits slipped 46% to GBP32.1 million after U.K.
retail sales fell 11.4% to GBP416 million.  Orders were 6.5%
lower than last year's.

Chief executive John Hancock blamed bad Easter season and major
shortfall in new product, particularly new bedroom ranges; but
he assured the trend has been reversed.  In fact, in the past
five weeks same-store orders for the U.K. business were down
just 1%.  Overall orders rose 6%.  For the firm's Howden Joinery
trade business, orders were up 16%.  While group sales went down
0.7% to GBP703 million, Howden's rose 25.6% to GBP227 million.

Rumors are rife that the group might receive an offer from the
management.  Under a possible offer, Howden and MFI could be
sold separately.  John Hancock refused to discuss the matter.


MIDTRANS LIMITED: Sets Creditors Meeting July 27

MISYS PLC: Business Picks up in Second-half
-------------------------------------------
Misys plc announces its preliminary results for the year ended
31 May 2004.  It reports that business is much stronger in the
second half after a difficult first half.  It also says that
major investment in product portfolio is reflected in strong H2
order intake.  For banking, it experienced good recovery in H2,
with order intake up 8% and encouraging pipeline.  Healthcare
has good operating performance -- order intake up 13% in H2.  It
is investing to maximize growing clinical market opportunity.
Another strong performance is reflected in general insurance.

For Sesame, the market is now stabilized.  Take-up of new
products is ahead of plan.  There is continued strong cash
conversion.  The current year performance is expected to benefit
from initiatives undertaken during the past year.

which we commented on in January.  The second half performance
was however much stronger, reflecting the benefits of major

initiatives.  We believe we are now in a good position to take
advantage of future opportunities in our markets."

NORTHERN FOODS: Lackluster 1st-Qtr Trading Expected, Says Chair
---------------------------------------------------------------
At the Annual General Meeting held in Willerby near Hull,
Chairman Peter Blackburn said: "Trading in the first quarter was
in line with expectations, with underlying retail sales for the
13 weeks to 3 July 2004 up 1.5%.  This compared with a period of
strong sales growth last year, prior to the loss of the
Sainsbury's savory products business in July 2003.

"We have made further progress on inflation recovery, with
selling price increases now matching the rise in input costs
year on year.  However, inflationary pressures are expected to
continue, driven particularly by protein and utility costs.

"The U.K. market undoubtedly presents challenges to all food
manufacturers as retailer consolidation increases and
competition grows ever more intense.  Nevertheless, we believe
that we possess substantial inherent strengths including our
focus on producing great food and on growing market sectors and
customers.  This is complemented by our well-invested assets,
technical expertise and strong track record of product
innovation.

"We welcome to her first AGM our new Chief Executive Pat
O'Driscoll, who joined the business on 29 March.  She has
already simplified our management structure and strengthened
accountability by creating a new operating board, and is adding
impetus to our efforts to leverage the group's scale.

"As already announced, we have continued to strengthen our focus
on our profitable, core activities through the sale during the
first quarter of Eden Vale Minsterley and Emile Tissot.  The
total proceeds of these disposals were GBP20.0 million.

"We have also maintained our share buyback program as a means of
returning cash to shareholders and mitigating any earnings
dilution arising from disposals.  Since the start of this
financial year we have bought 5.1 million shares at a cost of
GBP7.9 million.

"We anticipate an improvement in our underlying year on year
comparative sales performance as we pass the anniversary of last
year's major contract loss.  Our initiatives to reduce costs and
raise efficiencies in production, procurement and service
provision have already begun to deliver their expected benefits.
To meet the current competitive environment, we are focusing
with great determination on delivering an increasing
contribution from our structural cost savings and ensuring that
we make the most of all our inherent strengths."

TURNER & NEWALL: Court Secures Pension Fund
-------------------------------------------
The High Court has removed the excess baggage in Turner &
Newall's pension fund, saving the scheme from potential
collapse, The Scotsman says.

The court order effectively took out immediately from the trust
2,500 workers belonging to the company's subsidiaries.  The news
came as a relief to Kroll, the administrator of the firm which
is trying to rescue the GBP1.3 billion pension fund.  Partners
in Kroll have been talking with trustee representatives and
troubled parent Federal Mogul regarding the future of the trust.
Federal Mogul has been under Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection
since October 2001.  The pension scheme is classified unsecured
creditor of Federal Mogul.

The parties negotiating have considered injecting cash.  Joint
administrator Simon Freakley said: "When it became clear that
such a settlement satisfactory to all parties was increasingly
unlikely, we could wait no longer without taking precautionary
action."

Earlier, it was feared that the trustees might unilaterally
terminate the fund.  Such a scenario could blow a GBP875 million
hole in the pension fund.  The recent turn of events means
retired workers, former employees and current staff could get at
least part of the benefits due to them.  A new trust account is
not expected to be set up for the rest of the 2,500.  The fund
has 40,000 members.
