AUSTRIAN AIRLINES: Reports 16.2% Growth in Passenger Volume
-----------------------------------------------------------
At 10.9 %, the traffic result -- measured in revenue passenger
kilometers on scheduled services (RPK) -- was significantly above
the figure for the previous year, while available seat kilometers
increased by 6.3%.  When charter and holiday flights are also
taken into consideration, the balance of revenue passenger
kilometers actually rose by as much as 15.9%.  With 1,147,944
passengers carried, the Austrian Airlines Group recorded strong
growth in passenger volume of 16.2% in July compared to the same
period in 2004.  The load factor on scheduled services increased
by 3.4 percentage points compared to the previous year, reaching
an all-time high of 80.9%.

In the first seven months of 2005, the Austrian Airlines Group
achieved a traffic result which -- when measured in revenue
passenger kilometers on scheduled services (RPK) -- resulted in
an increase of 3.8% compared to the figure for the same period
the previous year.  Available seat kilometers (ASK) expanded by
4.5% in the period January to July 2005 compared to the same
period last year.  Taken cumulatively, the passenger load factor
on scheduled services of 71.7% is still slightly below (0.5
percentage points) the figure for last year.  Overall, the
Austrian Airlines Group carried 5,645,761 passengers on scheduled
and charter flights in the period under review, some 4.4% more
than in the same period in 2004.

Vagn Soerensen, Chief Executive Officer of the Board of
Management of Austrian Airlines, made the following comment on
the company's traffic trend in the first seven months of this
year: "I am pleased to be able to report that the group-wide
improvement measures that we began to intensify back in the first
quarter of 2005 have been reflected in significantly improved
traffic results since May.  In July, we were able to report a
rise in passenger volume of more than 16% and break through the
80% mark to achieve an all-time high scheduled load factor.

"The detailed results of our individual traffic regions -- Focus
East (Central, Eastern and South-Eastern Europe) with an increase
of 12.2% in passenger volume on scheduled services compared to
the previous year and a remarkable rise of 45.2% compared to July
2003, the Middle East with a rise on the same month last year of
37.6% and a very respectable 85.4% compared to 2003, and the
long-range sector with a 10.6% rise on last year and 49.2%
compared to 2003 -- only serve to confirm our consistent strategy
of specialization!"

ALSTOM SA: Power Unit Sells Condenser Business
----------------------------------------------
Alstom Power, the U.S. unit of engineering giant Alstom S.A. has
sold its condenser business to Yuba Heat Transfer LLC for an
undisclosed amount, The Express-Times says.

Yuba president Bill Farris revealed it transferred manufacturing
from Alstom's Easton site to its Tulsa headquarters.  Mr. Farris
said it would retain around 30 to 40 employees to handle sales,
engineering and administrative functions.

According to Mr. Farris, retained employees will remain at the
facility until Yuba can find a new office.  He added Yuba plans
to remain in the Easton area, where several utilities firms and
engineering companies are operating.  Mr. Farris said two of
Alstom's products "line up strategically well for Yuba."  Both
groups manufacture products for the utilities and engineering
sector: Yuba makes large heat transfer equipment and Alstom makes
condensers.

Mr. Farris said, "We are mirror images, other than we make feed
water heat transfers, and they make condensers."

Alstom spokesman Bruce Moffat around 60 employees will be
affected by the sale, while 20 to 30 personnel will remain during
the transition.  Alstom closed the site in May after sustaining
"substantial" damage from two floods.

DAIMLERCHRYSLER AG: BaFin Finds 'Grounds' for Illegal Trades
------------------------------------------------------------
German regulators have opened a formal investigation into
possible insider trading at DaimlerChrysler AG, said the
Associated Press.

Financial services regulator BaFin has reportedly found "grounds"
to suspect illegal dealing in the carmaker's stock.  On July 28,
shares went up prior to the announcement of former head Juergen
Schrempp's resignation.  Spokeswoman Sabine Reimer said the BaFin
probe has discovered traces of "illegal trades."  She refused to
name names, however.

"We are asking all financial institutions to show us who bought
or sold shares.  Then we'll try to find links to people who knew
of Mr. Schrempp's plans," she said.

DaimlerChrysler spokesman Toni Melfi refused to comment on the
issue.  The company has appointed Dieter Zetsche, 52, who led the
recovery of the Chrysler division, to replace Mr. Schrempp.   It
has also reportedly started searching for a new chief for its
Mercedes division after its head, Eckhard Cordes, offered to
resign.

ICELAND FOODS: To Shut Down Eight Loss-making Stores
----------------------------------------------------
Iceland Foods Ltd. is to close by this week all eight of its
stores in Ireland, leaving 160 jobless.  The move came as the
food retailer admitted it could no longer sustain losses at its
operations in the country.  It also does not see the outlets
bringing in profits in the future.

As reported by Business World, the company said: "Our operation
in the Republic of Ireland is losing money and we can see no
prospect of that changing.  We cannot afford to sustain those
losses any longer and have reluctantly decided we have no
alternative other than to cease trading."

"We have spent six months looking at it and have come to the
conclusion that it is not possible for us to turn this around," a
spokeswoman for the company told BreakingNews in another report.

Workers, who were reportedly informed of the decision Wednesday
night, can only hope for a buyer to save them from redundancy.
U.K.'s fifth-largest food retailer Baugur acquired Iceland in
February.  It has already declared a quarter of the company's
British workforce redundant.

Iceland stores in Ireland are located in Finglas, Ballyfermot,
Dun Laoghaire, Raheny, Talbot Street, Thomas Street and the Navan
Road in Dublin, and Letterkenny in Donegal.

ROYAL SHELL: Buys Further 1,900,000 'A' Shares for Cancellation
---------------------------------------------------------------
On 16 August 2005, Royal Dutch Shell plc has purchased for
cancellation 1,900,000 'A' Shares at a price of EUR26.87 per
share.

Following the cancellation of these shares, the remaining number
of 'A' Shares of Royal Dutch Shell plc will be 4,069,597,250.

As of that date, 2,759,360,000 'B' Shares of Royal Dutch Shell
plc were in issue.

                            *   *   *

On 15 August 2005, Royal Dutch Shell plc purchased for
cancellation 1,000,000 'A' Shares at a price of EUR27.14 per
share.  This came after the company purchased for cancellation
1,000,000 'A' Shares at a price of EUR26.89 per share on August
10.  A day after that, Shell also purchased for cancellation
1,800,000 'A' Shares at a price of EUR27.24 per share.  On August
12, it purchased for cancellation 1,400,000 'A' Shares at a price
of EUR27.086 per share.

Shell's buyback scheme is understood to be aimed at reviving
shareholders' and investors' confidence.  The buyback program
follows a damaging reserves overestimation scandal last year.

About the Company

Royal Dutch Shell plc is incorporated in England and Wales, has
its headquarters in The Hague and is listed on the London,
Amsterdam, and New York stock exchanges.  Shell companies have
operations in more than 145 countries with businesses including
oil and gas exploration and production; production and marketing
of Liquefied Natural Gas and Gas to Liquids; manufacturing,
marketing and shipping of oil products and chemicals and
renewable energy projects including wind and solar power.

The Trouble

Shell had admitted it overstated its proved reserves by almost
6.0 billion barrels between January 2004 and February this year.
The crisis resulted to the ouster of three top executives,
including former chairman Philip Watts.  It was finned EUR150
million in total after investigations launched by U.S. and
British regulators.  Shell has said it had revised the method by
which it calculates reserves to comply with U.S. regulations.
Shell's proved reserves stood at 10.2 billion barrels at the end
of 2004.

ROYAL SHELL: Buys Minority Stake in CHOREN Industries
-----------------------------------------------------
Shell Deutschland Oil GmbH has acquired a minority equity stake
in CHOREN Industries GmbH, Freiberg/Saxony.  Shell's commitment
sets the stage for construction of the world's first commercial
facility to convert biomass into high-quality synthetic bio-fuel,
already marketed by CHOREN as SunFuel.

A 15,000 t/a plant is planned for the production of SunFuel.
SunFuel is supported by carmakers such as Volkswagen and
DaimlerChrysler because it can be used without modification in
any diesel engine without compromising performance and with a
substantial reduction in harmful emissions.  Shell's stake in
CHOREN is still subject to approval by the German cartel
authorities.

CHOREN Industries has developed its patented Carbo-V (R)
Biomass-gasification process to become a leader in the field of
converting biomass -- such as woodchips -- into ultra clean
tar-free synthetic gas.  This "syngas" can then be converted into
synthetic bio-fuels using the same Shell Middle Distillate
Synthesis (SMDS) technology that Shell has developed for Gas to
Liquids production (conversion of natural gas into synthetic oil
products).  Shell is a leader in Gas to Liquids (GTL) technology
with unparalleled operating experience in the first commercial
GTL plant of its type at Bintulu Malaysia.  The synthetic GTL
Fuel produced is an important component of Shell's market leading
V-Power Diesel that is exclusively sold at Shell Retail stations
in several markets including Germany.

Rob Routs, Executive Director Downstream, from Shell: "We believe
that the leadership combination of both companies' experience and
complementary technologies will enable the construction and
operation of the first medium-sized 'Biomass to Liquids' (BTL)
plant.  This plant will be located at CHOREN's premises in
Freiberg and will pave the way towards more attractive
large-scale plants."

The synthetic fuels made from biomass have identical composition
to synthetic products derived from natural gas, yet they have the
advantage of being sustainable and environmentally friendly
because they are based on renewable feedstocks.  BTL Fuel is as
clear as water and virtually free of sulphur and aromatic
substances.

BTL Fuel's ignition qualities (as measured by a very high cetane
number) are excellent, thereby reducing noise and resulting in
cleaner combustion than with conventional diesel.  Greenhouse gas
emissions from BTL Fuel are less than 10 per cent of those from
fossil fuels.  Moreover, BTL Fuel can either be used as a pure
product or in a blend with conventional diesel fuel.  Initially
it will only be available in limited volumes until the technology
progresses and larger plants can be built.

Tom Blades, CEO, CHOREN Industries said: "We are particularly
pleased to have won over a partner with Shell's FT (Fischer
Tropsch) knowledge and clean fuel experience.  It affirms our
vision for the realization of large-scale production of biomass
derived synthetic transport fuels that meet the needs of today's
and tomorrow's mobile society but without further burdening the
environment."

Rob Routs added: "In the next two to three decades, liquid fuels
will continue to dominate the market.  Climate protection
measures will mean that the share accounted for by biofuels is
set to increase.  We want to proactively participate in this
shift as part of our commitment to the concept of sustainable
mobility and maintain our leadership in formulating advanced
fuels."

VERSATEL TELECOM: Tele2 Pursues Offer
-------------------------------------
Tele2 AB, through its unit Tele2 Netherlands B.V., is pursuing
its bid for Versatel Telecom International N.V., AFX News said.

A formal offer from Tele2 AB is expected to be formalized by
September.  The two companies revealed in a joint statement that
preparations for the offer are "well underway."

Tele2's EUR1.43 billion bid, announced last month, only awaits
the outcome of the consultation with competition authorities and
Versatel's works council.  It is also subject to an acceptance
threshold of 95% of shares and 85% of convertible notes.

The proposed takeover has already the support of Versatel's
management and its biggest shareholder, Talpa, which controls
about 42% of Versatel.  However, it faces opposition by the
"TeleNo" group, which claims to be supported by holders of up to
8.5% of Versatel shares.

Tele2 is a leading alternative telecom operator, providing cheap
and simple telecoms for all Europeans.  It has 29.4 million
customers in 25 countries, pitted against former government
monopolies.  It was founded in 1993 by Jan Stenbeck and has been
listed on Stockholmborsen since 1996.  In 2004, Tele2 had
operating revenue of SEK43 billion and EBITDA of SEK6.6 billion.

YUKOS OIL: Appellate Court Resets Review Next Month
---------------------------------------------------
The Ninth Arbitration Appeals Court has postponed the review of
an appeal by fuel giant Yukos over the controversial auction of
its Yuganskneftegaz unit, Interfax says.

The court reset the hearing to September 8, 2005, after
representatives of some parties involved failed to attend Monday.
Yukos filed a suit with the Moscow arbitration court to
invalidate Yuganskneftegaz's auction in December 2004, which saw
76.79% percent of the production unit fall eventually to the
government's hands.

Yukos is also demanding that defendants Russian Federal Property
Fund, BaikalFinance Group, Rosneft, Gazpromneft, Gazprom and the
Russian Finance Ministry collectively pay RUB324 billion in
damages caused by the sale of Yuganskneftegaz shares.  Named
third parties to the suit are the main directorate of the Russian
Justice Ministry for the city of Moscow, Federal Anti-Monopoly
Service and Yuganskneftegaz.

On November 18, 2004, bailiffs announced the auction to cover
Yukos' tax debt, which at the time was over US$20 billion.  On
December 19, the RFPF sold a bloc of Yuganskneftegaz shares for
US$9.3 billion to BaikalFinance Group, which was later acquired
by state-owned Rosneft.

ASHTEAD GROUP: Awards 58 Senior Executives Share Options
--------------------------------------------------------
Ashtead Group plc has granted annual awards for 2005 to 58 senior
executives under its Performance Share Plan.

Awards under the PSP comprise the conditional right to receive
ordinary shares of 10 pence each, which normally vest on the
third anniversary of grant subject to continued employment and
the meeting of challenging earnings per share and total
shareholder return targets established by the Remuneration
Committee.

The company intends to utilize a combination of existing shares
held by the company's Employee Share Ownership Trust and new
shares to be purchased by the ESOT to fulfill any obligation to
employees, which may arise in August 2008.

The 176,469 ordinary shares conditionally granted to Mr. S I
Robson on 29 July 2002 under the Company's Investment Incentive
Plan have vested unconditionally as the performance criteria
attaching to the grant have been met in full.

Mr. Robson has sold 50,579 shares at GBP1.1425 per share to meet
the associated tax liability and has retained the balance of
125,890 shares.

                        About the Company

Registered in the U.K., Ashtead is a leading provider of rental
equipment in the U.K. and the U.S., through its a-Plant and
Sunbelt subsidiaries.  As at financial year ending April 30,
2005, the group generated annual revenues of GBP523.7 million
and EBITDA of GBP169.7 million.  As at 30 April 2005, net
debt was GBP493.2 million.

In July, Ashtead completed its refinancing, which included:

(a) the raising of approximately GBP70 million before expenses
    through the Placing and Open Offer of approximately 73.4
    million New Ordinary Shares at 95.5 pence per share; and

(b) the raising of US$250 million (approximately GBP142
    million), before expenses, by the issue of New Senior Loan
    Notes, which carry an interest rate of 8 5/8 % and will be
    repayable in full in August 2015.

From the proceeds of the refinancing, Ashtead has now repaid the
Convertible Loan Note at a discount of approximately 11% and
will redeem GBP42 million of the existing Senior Loan Notes,
which carry interest at a rate of 12%.

Together these transactions have further deleveraged the balance
sheet and reduce borrowing costs; further extended the average
debt maturity to approximately 7 years; avoided the potential
dilution to existing shareholders which would occur if the
Convertible Loan Note were to convert into equity; broadened the
investor base; and facilitated the payment of dividends in the
future.

Bay, Echt, Fyvie, Inverbervie, Kemnay, Kintore, Laurencekirk, New
Deer, Oldmeldrum, Portsoy, Rhynie, Strathdon, Strichen, Tarland,
Tarves, and Torphins.

The bank has been losing clients due to the increasing popularity
of Internet and telephone banking.  Steve Reid, general manager
for retail banking at Clydesdale Bank, said the branches had only
1,200 customers per branch, compared with the industry average of
9,800.  The company has 23 other branches in the city of Aberdeen
and Aberdeenshire.

In December, the bank announced a 44% drop in profits to GBP90
million.  It slashed interim dividend to NAB and scrapped final
dividend.  Clydesdale's profit has been in decline for the past
three years.  It was performing poorly at a time when rival HBOS
and Royal Bank of Scotland are flourishing.

CLYDESDALE BANK: Amicus Condemns Branch Closures
------------------------------------------------
Amicus Britain's biggest private sector union is appalled at
National Australia Group's announcement that it intends to close
a further 31 branches across England and Scotland.  Fifteen of
the branches will be the last branch in town.

The closures have once again hit Clydesdale Bank and Yorkshire
Bank branches in some of the most vulnerable areas of the
community. Plus the bank has reneged on its 2002 promise to keep
'last bank in town' branches open.

The impact on the local communities is severe with some customers
expected to travel up to 26 miles of rural roads to access full
banking facilities.  The bank's decision once again shows a
disregard to the representations made by Amicus, MPs and MSPs on
the commitment to local communities, particularly in the light of
the bank's Corporate Social Responsibility Agenda.

Branch closures lead to economic cost and inconvenience to small
businesses, the elderly, the disabled and others who will be
forced to use alternative banking locations/facilities.  Closures
exclude low-income consumers from mainstream financial services.

Bank branch closures contribute to commercial decline of
communities as better off consumers change their purchasing
habits along with the need to travel further afield for banking
services, businesses close, re-generation is rendered more
unlikely and start-up finance for local business becomes more
difficult to obtain.

The Environment Actions taken by consumers to overcome the
problems caused directly and indirectly by bank branch closures
contribute to environmental damage, for example, through
increasing motor vehicle usage.

Amicus National Officer, Mary Alexander, said: "U.K. Banks
provide a crucial service to the community and our economic
security depends on them.  NAG have shelved their Corporate
Responsibilities.  These closures will affect some of the most
vulnerable areas of the community.  Amicus is calling on NAG to
reverse this decision and to listen to the unions, consumers, MPs
and MSPs alike.

"Amicus will be working to ensure that there will be no
compulsory redundancies and staff are found suitable alternative
employment within the bank."

COSTAIN GROUP: IFRS Shift to Affect Spanish Joint Venture
---------------------------------------------------------
Costain Group plc, in line with all publicly listed companies in
the European Union, will be reporting its financial results in
accordance with International Financial Reporting Standards with
effect from 1 January 2005.

The Company's first report under the new standards will be the
announcement of its half-year results for the period ended 30
June 2005.  Ahead of these results, Costain has presented the
impact of the transition to IFRS.

Having reviewed the impact of IFRS across the Group, the majority
of changes are of a presentational nature only, and the Group's
core contracting businesses and underlying cash flows are
unaffected.  The principal impact on the Group's income statement
is from its joint venture property development in Southern Spain,
Alcaidesa, and the timing of both revenue and profit recognition
within that operation.

Under IFRS, there is a change in the revenue recognition policy
at Alcaidesa.  Revenue was previously recognized after exchange
of contract and when any outstanding conditions, principally the
completion of infrastructure, were under its control.

However, IFRS is more specific about recognizing revenue when
there remain any significant outstanding acts.  This means that
under IFRS, revenue will be recognized when risk associated with
ownership of the land is transferred and all significant acts are
complete.

The impact of this change is to defer sales recognized by the
joint venture in 2004 until the associated infrastructure is
complete.  This has reduced the Group's earnings for the year
ended 31 December 2004 by GBP6.4 million and for the six months
ended 30 June 2004 by GBP1.9 million.  However, it is anticipated
that the majority of these infrastructure works will be completed
in 2005 and the corresponding profit recognized accordingly.

The business strategy of Alcaidesa, which is to purchase land and
then secure the necessary planning consent before selling parcels
of the land for development, will not be affected by this change.
However, the future financial results are likely to be more
volatile as future infrastructure works on land interests may
extend over a twelve-month period, thereby deferring sales to the
following year.  Alcaidesa is the only part of the Group affected
by this change.

A copy of the report on the impact of the transition to IFRS is
available free of charge at
http://bankrupt.com/misc/CostainGroup(IFRS).pdf

                            *   *   *

Costain collapsed under heavy debt in the mid 1990s after
venturing into U.S. mining.  It is still trying to recover, with
its first dividend in years expected this year or next.  Its
core U.K. business reported a GBP10.5 million profit last year
after plunging into a EUR5 million loss in 2000.

The company has moved into asset management of water utilities
from civil engineering.  In May, the special resolution
approving the reduction of share capital and cancellation of
share premium account in the Company was approved by the
Companies Court and was registered at Companies House.

COSTAIN GROUP: Wins GBP6 Million 21-month Contract
--------------------------------------------------
The first phase of decommissioning of the Dragon nuclear reactor
at Winfrith, Dorset, has been awarded to the Costain Group by the
United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA).

The letting of this 21-month contract (value GBP6 million)
signifies another major milestone in the Winfrith site closure
program.

Dragon reactor was a 20MW High temperature helium cooled reactor
sponsored by the International Organization for Economic
Development (OECD).  It was formally opened in 1964 and was a
collaboration by 12 European countries to prove the feasibility
of a new reactor type.

The first phase of decommissioning covers the clear-out of the
inner and outer containment areas of the reactor including
removal of redundant plant and decontamination to low levels.

Alan Bennett, Dragon Project Manager said: "I am delighted that
another important contract has been let and look forward to
working with Costain.  The letting of this contract means another
milestone has been reached putting UKAEA on track with our
accelerated program to complete decommissioning at Winfrith by
2020."

Ian Donnelly, Costain Nuclear Director, said: "Costain is looking
forward to commencing work on this project.  Once underway we may
look to recruit staff from the surrounding area."

Ann Gout, Costain Contract Manager, said: "It is great to have
the opportunity to work on such a unique project.  One of the
major challenges will be to maximize the amount of clean waste
removed from the site as well as implement a tight scheduled
project on time."

GATE GOURMET: Bankruptcy Looms as Creditors, Staff Grow Restive
---------------------------------------------------------------
Creditors of airline catering firm Gate Gourmet are intent on
collecting their loan, according to the Times.  The company is
currently in talks with creditors after defaulting on monthly
interest payments on a CHF300 million (GBP132 million)
"mezzanine" loan since January.

The creditors are said to be eyeing a debt-for-equity swap that
will give them 65% of Gate Gourmet, plus CHF150 million in cash
in exchange for writing off the debt.  Otherwise, the creditors,
who have lent almost CHF700 million to Gate Gourmet, may call in
their loans.  This move could send Gate Gourmet into bankruptcy.

Gate Gourmet has already axed 667 workers as part of its
cost-cutting measures.  This led to an unofficial strike by 1,000
British Airways ground staff at Heathrow last week, leaving over
110,000 passengers stranded.  Its crisis worsened after
negotiations with the Transport and General Workers Union broke
down Wednesday night, according to the Financial Times in a
separate report.

Tony Woodley, the TGWU general secretary, said: "[British
Airways] must now play a part in the resolution of this situation
. . . It is our belief that [it] cannot do a Pontius Pilate on
this issue."  The union added the company had been "wanting to
selectively re-employ those who had been sacked, even though
there is enough work for everyone."

Gate Gourmet, for its part, said the talks failed due the
preconditions set by the union.

Gate Gourmet U.K., which lost GBP22 million in 2004, is said to
be facing losses of GBP25 million this year.  It has warned that
failure to reach an agreement with the union would most likely
force it into administration.  It blames its crisis on its
"increasingly punitive" contract with British Airways, as well as
increasing staff costs and "1970s union-protected working
practices."

Eric Born, managing director of Gate Gourmet U.K., said he was
"utterly stunned and disappointed at the attitude of the union
and the way it has acted."

Meanwhile, a spokesman for British Airways told Daily Mail in
another report: "We've been in talks with (Gate Gourmet) since
April, but they have not put any new proposals forward in the
last few days."

HIT ENTERTAINMENT: Proposed Second-Lien Loan Rated 'CCC+'
---------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its 'CCC+' bank loan
rating and a recovery rating of '5' to a proposed $172 million
second-lien term loan due 2013 of HIT Entertainment Inc.  The
recovery rating of '5' indicates an expectation of negligible
recovery of principal (0%-25%)in the event of a payment default.
At the same time, Standard & Poor's affirmed its 'B' corporate
credit rating on U.S.-based HIT and its holding company, HIT
Entertainment Ltd.

Standard & Poor's also affirmed its 'B' bank loan rating and a
recovery rating of '3' on HIT's $453 million first-lien credit
facilities due 2011.  The proposed second-lien term loan replaces
the previously proposed $172 million senior subordinated notes
offering.  The outlook is negative.  Pro forma for the
transaction, total debt outstanding at April 30, 2005, was $305
million.

"The ratings reflect HIT's significant content distribution risk
relating to its broadcast partners, its narrow base of operation,
its participation in a mature and competitive industry with
limited internal growth prospects, and its aggressive financial
policy," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst Andy Liu.  These
factors are only partially offset by the company's strong brand
properties.

HIT is a preschool children's programming and entertainment
company.  Its portfolio of properties includes Bob the Builder,
Thomas the Tank Engine, Barney the Dinosaur, Angelina Ballerina,
Pingu, Guinness World Records, and others.  The company's
programming is broadcast by the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS)
and will start in the fall on Sprout, a digital-tier preschool
children's channel being launched by Comcast Corp.
(BBB+/Stable/A-2) (40% equity stake), HIT (30%), PBS (15%), and
Sesame Workshop (15%).

For the most part, HIT is not compensated by its broadcast
partners, but the broadcast of its programs generates demand for
home entertainment videos and license fees for toys sold by
outside entities responsible for the manufacturing process.
These two revenue sources account for more than 85% of the
company's revenues.

Content distribution represents a significant risk for the
company.  Any adverse programming decision by a channel operator,
such as shifting program showtimes or reducing showings per week,
can have a material negative effect.
HIT's long-term contract with PBS (covering Bob the Builder,
Barney the Dinosaur, and Thomas the Tank Engine) and the launch
of Sprout should ensure the continued distribution of the
company's programs in the U.S., but any changes in programming
philosophy by broadcast partners could still have a material
impact on HIT.

KINLOCH DAMPH: Administrator Wants Term Extended
------------------------------------------------
The administrator of troubled fish farm Kinloch Damph wants to
extend the group's administration to two years to further improve
its situation, The Herald says.

David Hunter, head of corporate recovery at Campbell Dallas in
Paisley, said the extended period would allow him to grow and
harvest 500,000 salmon in a Shetlands farm, which he acquired
from Hoove Salmon when it went into receivership after failing to
pay for Kinloch Damph's stock.  Hoove employees currently manage
and maintain the farm while Mr. Hunter oversees operations and
ensures employees are paid.

Mr. Hunter also plans to build a road in Ross-shire to "allow
direct access and maintain employment at the farm.  Since taking
over last year, Mr. Hunter has already sold the group's main
business in Kishorn to Scottish Sea Farms, saving around 25 jobs.
Mr. Hunter also sold the smolt producer's estate to  a London
barrister, who plans to run it as a commercial sporting venture.

Mr. Hunter said, "We are delighted that we have now successfully
sold all aspects of the former Kinloch Damph Ltd. trade and
assets and much of the employment and activity in the Kishorn
area has been retained."

He said banks view the salmon farming industry as high risk and
are unwilling to provide financing, resulting to consolidations
and takeover by multinationals.

Mr. Hunter added, "Happily, salmon prices have improved
considerably this year following European price safeguard
measures -- good for anyone surviving the last few years'
difficulties, but too late for some businesses and their
creditors."

Kinloch Damph went into administration in 2004 after failing to
pay a GBP5 million debt to Bank of Scotland.

MG ROVER: Accounting Watchdog to Look into Deloitte's Work
----------------------------------------------------------
Another regulatory body has reportedly launched an investigation
into MG Rover's crisis, this time involving Deloitte & Touche
LLP's auditing of the carmaker.  This is separate from the
Department of Trade and Industry's inquiry into the company's
collapse.

According to The Times, the Accountancy Investigation &
Discipline Board will look into the 2003 accounts of MG Rover and
parent company Phoenix Venture Holdings.  The probe is said to be
focused on tax avoidance and service fees paid to Deloitte.

The accounting firm reportedly received GBP4 million from MG
Rover in 2002, which included audit fees of GBP500,000.  Deloitte
was rehired the following year, dropping MG Rover's obligation to
call in new auditors every year.

Deloitte is facing charges in Italy over its role as auditor of
collapsed dairy group Parmalat.  It is said to have kept the
company's problems from investors.  It has also been fined US$50
million by U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission over its
auditing of bankrupt cable firm Adelphia.

Deloitte, however, is not the only one being investigated, as
PricewaterhouseCoopers faces a similar investigation for its work
for collapsed engineering group Mayflower.  Ernst & Young has
been fighting a negligence claim from Equitable Life, while KPMG
faces a GBP300 million lawsuit for alleged negligence over the
audit of Independent Insurance.
