ALSTOM SA: Fulfills E.U. Requirement to Divest Assets
-----------------------------------------------------
Engineering giant Alstom S.A. has disposed of its Power
Conversion unit as required by the European Commission, AFX News
reported recently.

An Alstom spokesman refused to disclose the amount paid by
Barclays Private Equity, but analysts at Societe Generale had
previously estimated the unit to be worth EUR200-250 million.
The disposal is one of the requirements set by the Commission
when it approved a rescue package backed by the government last
year.

The Power Conversion unit makes generators and electrical control
equipment.

ALSTOM SA: Wins EUR204 Million Contract in Venezuela
----------------------------------------------------
C.A. Metro Los Teques, the public operator of the Los Teques
metro line, has awarded the ALSTOM-led FRAMECA consortium a
turnkey contract worth EUR204 million for the Caracas metro
(Venezuela).  ALSTOM's share is about EUR90 million.

The Los Teques line is an independent line running 9.8 km from
Las Adjuntas at the south end of Line 2 to El Tambor in the
centre of Los Teques.  It will relieve congested roads and
complement the existing metro network.  The first line will be
put into service in October 2006 and the second line at the
beginning of 2008.

ALSTOM will supply six train sets, the traction electrification
and the signaling equipment for the Los Teques line in
continuation of metro line 2.  ALSTOM will also be in charge of
the co-ordination of this project with SGTE as co-leader.

Five ALSTOM sites will be involved in this contract:
Valenciennes, Tarbes, Villeurbanne, Saint-Ouen in France and
Charleroi in Belgium.

ALSTOM has been a key supplier to the metro of the Venezuelan
capital for the last 30 years and has so far delivered 600 cars
for metro lines 1, 2 and 3. The company also did the rolling
stock maintenance of 400 metro cars and provided signaling
equipment and power supply for these lines.

CHAMATEX SA: Court Okays Continuation Plan
------------------------------------------
The commercial court of Annonay has approved the 10-year
continuation plan of textile group Chamatex, Les Echos says.

The plan passed court scrutiny despite uncertainties in the
market.  The industry has been very sluggish, the main reason
Chamatex has failed to find a buyer and subsisting on creditors
support.  Creditor banks recently agreed to write off 80% of its
debt in exchange for cash payments within the next few months.

Chamatex applied for court-supervised administration on July 2,
2004 and has undergone significant restructuring and
transformation.  Since entering voluntary liquidation, it has cut
workers to 120 from 450 and sold or closed shops.

TCR-Europe reported on August 11 that Chamatex expects to post a
profit for the financial year ending September 30, despite a deep
dive in turnover from EUR76.5 million in 2003/2004 to EUR20
million in 2004/2005.

DAIMLERCHRYSLER AG: Seals MTU Buyout
------------------------------------
The sale of MTU Friedrichshafen is reportedly underway after
DaimlerChrysler AG agreed to buy the remaining stake in the
diesel-engine maker.  According to the Associated Press,
DaimlerChrysler had agreed to pay an undisclosed sum for the
remaining 12% of MTU from the Maybach and Zeppelin families.

Daimler is expected to sell MTU after the buyout, as part of its
strategy to divest non-core assets.  It is now negotiating with
possible buyers, which include German truck manufacturer MAN AG,
U.S.-based equity firm Kohlberg Kravis Roberts and Swedish
investor EQT Partners.  The sale is expected to generate EUR1
billion.

MTU builds engines for trains, ships and construction machinery
and employs more than 6,000.  It had turnover of EUR1.75 billion
in 2004.
In a statement, DaimlerChrysler stressed: "The uncertainty for
the firm and all its employees has been ended."

Early this month, negotiations between Daimler and the Maybach
and Zeppelin families went awry when the latter demanded to
retain its MTU shareholding.

PRIMACOM AG: Court Junks SSL Claims for Lack of Jurisdiction
------------------------------------------------------------
On Sept. 13, the District Court in Mainz rejected PrimaCom AG's
claim against the Second Secured Lenders due to lack of
international jurisdiction.

After submission of the written reasons of this judgment,
PrimaCom said it will examine whether the decision will be
appealed.

                            *   *   *

In December, PrimaCom AG and the company's subsidiary PrimaCom
Management GmbH filed a lawsuit at the District Court in Mainz
against the holders of the "second secured loan."  The second
secured loan amounts to EUR375 million.  The lawsuit (AZ 10HKO
112/04) was aimed at determining whether PrimaCom AG and PrimaCom
Management GmbH is obligated to pay the interest of the second
secured loan or rather that the second secured holder should
currently not be able to enforce possible existing interest
claims.

The lawsuit is based on expert opinions obtained from the
renowned accounting partnership (Wirtschaftspruefersozietat) LKC
Kemper Czarske v. Gronau Berz -- functioning as special
examiner -- as well as from Prof. Dr. Armbruester on usurious
credit and additionally on an expert opinion from a renowned
insolvency office -- that the second secured loan has an equity
character.  This implies that no interest would have to be paid
over the entire term and that interest already paid should be
refunded to the company.  Furthermore due to the equity character
of the second secured loans, it is not possible under the German
law to continue to make interest payments as long as, and until a
solution to the financial crisis is found.

PRIMACOM AG: May Sell Profitable Dutch Unit, Says Paper
-------------------------------------------------------
Primacom AG has approached creditor banks and investors regarding
a debt-restructuring proposal that could erase as much as EUR500
million of its debt, Suddeutsche Zeitung says.

The paper speculated the plan may involve the sale of Dutch
subsidiary Multikabel, which has 300,000 customers and is
profitable.  The proceeds could be used to repay EUR500 million
of top priority loans.  The plan may also involve a deal with
international investment companies such as Apollo, which is
currently owed EUR500 million, about half of Primacom's total
debt.

Primacom is the fourth largest cable network operator in Germany,
but it failed to capitalize on a 6.8% hike in turnover in the
first six months of the year.  Instead, it saw first-half
operating profit drop to EUR5.74 million from EUR11.63 million
last year.  Net loss ballooned to EUR60.1 million from EUR52
million.

Primacom's consolidated debt currently stands at EUR999.6
million, while liquid funds amount to EUR396,000.  Its 860
employees service around 1.3 million clients in Germany and the
Netherlands.

RHI AG: Files Amended Plan of Reorganization in U.S.
----------------------------------------------------
In 2002, U.S. members of the RHI group filed for bankruptcy
protection under Chapter 11.  This included North American
Refractories Company (NARCO), Global Industrial Technologies
(GIT), A.P. Green Industries (APG) and Harbison-Walker
Refractories Company (H-W).

RHI, several RHI affiliates and various U.S. companies operating
under Chapter 11, including NARCO and GIT, had reached settlement
agreements in April 2004 to settle all mutual pre-petition
claims, including those arising from receivables, payables, bank
guarantees, liabilities and tax issues arising out of the debtors
' affiliation with RHI.  These agreements regulate the handling
of bank guarantees and liabilities as well as RHI's
relinquishment of pre-petition operating receivables from the
U.S. debtor companies and the relinquishment of all shares in the
U.S. debtor companies in the course of the Chapter 11
proceedings.

As RHI wrote down all accounts receivable and book values of
investments affected in the financial statements of 2001, no
additional burdens on the results will arise from these
agreements for RHI.  A condition to the NARCO settlement
agreement is a US$60 million payment by Honeywell International
Inc. to RHI Refractories Holding under a prior contract related
to NARCO's Chapter 11 filing.

On September 15, 2005, the U.S. Chapter 11 companies filed
amended Plans of Reorganization (PoR).  The PoR filed by these
companies incorporate the abovementioned settlement agreements.
RHI and the parties involved in the Chapter 11 proceedings are
currently reviewing the PoR.

If the court gives its approval, RHI AG and its affiliates will
receive protection with respect to all remaining asbestos claims
against the debtor companies in the U.S.A. on the basis of these
settlement agreements and provide, among other things, that RHI
AG and its affiliates will be beneficiaries of the channeling
injunctions of the plans of reorganization.

The implementation of all abovementioned agreements can be
effected as soon as the court in Pittsburgh approves the
settlement agreements and the debtors' PoR within the Chapter 11
proceedings.  Therewith all present and future asbestos claims
against the deconsolidated U.S. companies would finally be
resolved with legal security.

THYSSENKRUPP AG: To Pair with EADS in Atlas Bid
-----------------------------------------------
ThyssenKrupp AG and EADS N.V. are reportedly planning to jointly
bid for Atlas Elektronik.  The arrangement will see ThyssenKrupp
and EADS owning 60% and 40% stakes, respectively, in the German
maritime electronics firm owned by BAE Systems plc, said
Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung.

ThyssenKrupp, which refused to provide details, is said to have
the support of the German government and labor group IG Metall.
The state eyes Atlas to be controlled by a German company,
according to the German media.  This gives another possible
bidder Thales, the French electronics group, almost no chance of
getting through.

BAE has said due diligence for the transaction is underway and
would take "some weeks."

PARMALAT HUNGARIA: Rival Dairy Group Takes over Business
--------------------------------------------------------
Dairy group Alfoldi Milk Kft has acquired Parmalat Hungaria Dairy
Rt., Budapest Business Journal says.

Ferenc Somogyi, who represents liquidator TM-Line, confirmed the
sale, adding it still needs clearance from the Competition
Office.  He declined to reveal the purchase price, of which 40%
had already been used to repay 40% of the company's D-category
creditors.  He did say the figure fell within previous estimates
of between EUR6.85 million (HUF1.7 billion) and EUR7.38 million
(HUF1.8 billion).

TCR-Europe reported on Aug. 11, 2005 that Alfoldi would probably
retain the "Parmalat" brand and apply for job-retaining subsidies
to keep Parmalat's Szekesfehervar workers.

ALITALIA SPA: European Commission Won't Reopen Probe for Now
------------------------------------------------------------
The European Commission will not reopen the probe on Alitalia's
restructuring plan, Transport Commissioner Jacques Barrot
declared last week.  He was reacting to speculation that the
Commission may review the airline's state-backed rescue plan if
the recapitalization component misses the deadline.

Under the plan, the EUR1.2 billion rights issue that will reduce
the government stake from 62.3% to less than 50% is supposed to
take place on October 8.  But Finance Director Gabriele
Spazzaderi recently said the transaction will not take place
until late October or early November, in violation of the
condition set by Brussels 11 months ago when it authorised the
Italian state to guarantee a EUR400 million bridging loan to
Alitalia.

Mr. Barrot clarified, however, that as long as Alitalia could
launch its capital hike before 2006, it would not reopen the
probe.  "Either the recapitalization really happens before the
end of the year... or else it doesn't and we reopen the dossier,"
AFX quoted him as saying.

                        About the Company

Headquartered in Viale A. Marchetti 111, 00148 Rome, Italy,
Alitalia S.p.A. -- http://www.alitalia.it-- generates more than
EUR4 billion in annual revenue and employs more than 20,000
people.  As of December 2004, the group net debt stands at
EUR1.76 billion in 2004.  Alitalia flies to about 80 destinations
in more than 60 countries from its hubs in Rome and Milan and
operates a fleet of about 185 aircraft.  Despite a EUR1.4 billion
state-backed restructuring in 1997 and a EUR1.4 billion capital
injection two years ago, the carrier remains in deep financial
crisis.  Alitalia has posted an annual profit only four times in
the past 16 years.  A turnaround plan approved late 2004 allows
for a split-up of the airline's flight and ground operations,
paving the way for its privatization. Banca Intesa S.p.A. and
Deutsche Bank have sent letters of intent to underwrite the
carrier's EUR1.2 billion capital hike, which it will use to
finance its latest restructuring.

ALITALIA SPA: Italy Moves to Offset High Fuel Cost
--------------------------------------------------
The government is drafting a decree for the airline sector that
would lessen the impact of soaring fuel costs, Reuters says.

In a statement, the cabinet said the decree, sponsored by
undersecretary Gianni Letta, would apply to the entire sector.
However, according to Reuters, Alitalia was clearly the decree's
main beneficiary.  In a phone interview with Reuters, Transport
Minister Pietro Lunardi said, "Alitalia's industrial plan has
been knocked off course and therefore we need to adopt measures
to deal with it [high fuel costs]."

Alitalia is currently updating its 2005-2008 industrial plan to
include considerations in fuel prices, which, according to
unofficial estimates, might cost the carrier around EUR400
million over the four-year period.  Failure to do so might scare
away possible investors from pouring EUR1.2 billion in fresh
capital.  The carrier had indicated it might include additional
cost cuts in the new business plan.

PARMALAT FINANZIARIA: Parmatour Has New Owner
---------------------------------------------
Parmalat Finanziaria S.p.A. has accepted I Grandi Viaggi S.p.A.
(IGV) and Aurum Hotels' bid for Parmatour.

The two were picked over Soglia Hotels, which had offered EUR44
million for the travel agency formerly operated by the Tanzi
family.  IGV-Aurum's bid was slightly higher at EUR47 million,
according to Il Sole 24 Ore.  Administrators accordingly chose
IGV-Aurum because it guaranteed the jobs at Parmatour's
headquarters.  Proceeds from the sale will be used to repay part
of Parmatour's EUR800 million debt.

Soglia Hotels, meanwhile, lamented the lack of transparency in
the sale process, alleging the administrators had allowed
IGV-Aurum to increase its bid at the last minute, in violation of
auction rules.

Parmatour was one of several Parmalat units placed under the
supervision of court-appointed administrator Enrico Bondi.  The
travel agency, owned by Francesca Tanzi, daughter of Parmalat
founder Calisto, operates 11 local and foreign resorts.

KONINKLIJKE AHOLD: Names New Chief Internal Audit Officer
---------------------------------------------------------
On September 16, 2005, Ahold appointed Joop Brakenhoff as Chief
Internal Audit Officer.

Currently Ahold's Vice President Internal Control, Mr. Brakenhoff
assumed his new role on September 19, 2005.  He will focus on
fine-tuning the company's internal controls and central reporting
lines.  The internal audit function will continue to have a dual
reporting line to Anders Moberg, President & CEO, and the Audit
Committee of Ahold's Supervisory Board.

Mr. Brakenhoff, 40, started his career at Ahold on June 1, 2002,
as VP Internal Audit Europe and was promoted to VP Accounting in
February 2004.  In February 2005, he shouldered the additional
responsibility of setting up the Internal Control unit of Ahold's
Accounting & Reporting department.  Prior to joining Ahold, Mr.
Brakenhoff worked at KPMG for nine years in various management
positions before joining the Heerema Group in 1994 and the Burg
Group two years later as Group Controller and statutory Financial
Director.  Mr. Brakenhoff succeeds Thijs Smit, whose decision to
pursue other interests towards the end of the year was announced
on June 17, 2005.

Commenting on the appointment, Anders Moberg said: "With his
solid background in Ahold's accounting, reporting and audit
disciplines, we are delighted to promote Joop into this key
position as our Internal Audit process moves to the next level.
We are also very pleased to have been able to appoint a successor
to Thijs from within our ranks. Our management development
program is operating at full swing and we wish Joop every success
in his new challenge."

                        About the Company

Headquartered in Amsterdam, Ahold is one of the world's leading
food providers.  It encompasses an international group of local
food retail and foodservice operators that do business under
their own brand names.  It has over 200,000 associates and 2004
consolidated net sales of approximately EUR52 billion.

                           The Trouble

Ahold encountered trouble in 2003 when it admitted a US$500
million overstatement of EBITA at its U.S. foodservice
distribution arm, requiring restatement of financial accounts
for 2002 and previous years.  In November that year, it announced
a 3-year 'Road to Recovery' program that includes a EUR2.5
billion rights issue, EUR300 million and US$1.45 billion back-up
credit facilities, and at least EUR2.5 billion in asset sales.
The program is aimed at returning the company to investment grade
by end of 2005.

                         Status to date

In August, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services raised its
long-term corporate credit ratings on Ahold to 'BB+' from 'BB'
with a stable outlook to reflect substantial improvement of the
group's financial profile in the past 18 months.  This follows
the completion of a significant disposal program, to date
exceeding the stated EUR2.5 billion ($3.1 billion) target.

Standard & Poor's said it would consider an upgrade to investment
grade level only if:

(a) The challenging environment currently prevailing in the
    group's core U.S. and Dutch retail markets improves; and

(b) The ratio of FFO to fully adjusted net debt and the EBITDAR
    coverage of net fixed charges improve beyond 25% and 2.5x,
    respectively.

Despite the group's deleveraging target and the completion of
remaining disposals in 2005, these conditions might not be
achieved in the near term, given the very challenging trading
conditions that are prevailing in the group's core markets.

ROYAL SHELL: Cancels 2,250,000 'A' Shares
-----------------------------------------
On 15 September 2005, Royal Dutch Shell plc purchased for
cancellation 2,250,000 'A' Shares at a price of EUR26.62 per
share.  It further purchased for cancellation 712,636 'A' Shares
at a price of 1796.78 pence per share.

Following the cancellation of these shares and the conversion of
a further 31,318 Royal Dutch shares correctly tendered during the
subsequent offer acceptance period in respect of the offer by
Royal Dutch Shell plc for all ordinary shares of Royal Dutch
Petroleum which expired on 9 August 2005, the remaining number of
'A' Shares of Royal Dutch Shell plc will be 4,035,500,000.

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

                            *   *   *

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 fined 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.

INDUSTRY & CONSTRUCTION: Moody's Raises Ratings to Ba1
------------------------------------------------------
Moody's Investors Service has upgraded the long-term foreign
currency bank deposit rating of Industry & Construction Bank
(ICB) to Ba1 from Ba3 and the bank's senior unsecured foreign
currency debt rating to Ba1 from Ba3, and has assigned a Ba2
rating to the upcoming issue of subordinated notes via the bank's
Luxembourg-based orphan SPV, Or-ICB S.A.

The short-term deposit rating and Financial Strength Rating (FSR)
remain unchanged at Not-Prime and D- (D minus), respectively.
The outlook for long-term and short-term deposit ratings as well
as for senior and subordinated debt ratings is positive.  At the
same time, Moody's Interfax Rating Agency, which is
majority-owned by Moody's, has upgraded the long-term national
scale credit rating of ICB to Aa1.ru from Aa3.ru.

Today's rating actions reflect the changed perception of support
from one of the bank's main shareholders -- Vneshtorgbank (VTB),
rated at the country ceiling for Russia -- Ba1 (rating on review
for possible upgrade)/Not-Prime (rating on review for possible
upgrade)/D- (stable outlook), which owns a blocking equity stake
in ICB and holds an option which confers a right to raise its
shareholding in the bank to a controlling one (about 76% of the
total shares).  This option will be exercised in the foreseeable
future.

The upgrade of the bank deposit and debt ratings as well as of
their corresponding positive outlooks is based on Moody's
assumptions regarding:

(a) The likelihood that this transaction will materialize; and

(b) The role that ICB will play in VTB Group if it were to be
acquired by the latter.

However, Moody's cautions that a reversal in VTB's plans
regarding acquiring full control of ICB would result in downward
pressure on the ratings.  On the other hand, if the deal with VTB
goes through as expected, the ratings will have an upside
potential, reflected in the positive outlook and, depending on
the type of transaction and the level of implicit support, may
converge with those for state-owned VTB.

Moody's has also assigned a Ba2 foreign currency debt rating to
the bank's upcoming subordinated note issue through Or-ICB S.A.,
a Luxembourg-based special purpose entity, with a tentative size
of US$200 million, with final legal maturity of 10 years,
redeemable by the bank five years after issue.  This rating
account for a higher expected loss given default stemming from
the subordinated nature of the obligation, and was notched down
from the bank's Ba1 senior unsecured debt rating.

Industry & Construction Bank is headquartered in St. Petersburg,
Russian Federation.  It is the largest non-state-owned bank in
the Northwest region and reported total assets of US$3.6 billion
under IFRS (audited) as of December 31, 2004.

ONO GROUP: Obtains EUR3.5 Billion Loan to Fund Auna Acquisition
---------------------------------------------------------------
ONO, one of Spain's leading broadband service providers, said
that on 4 August 2005 it signed commitment letters with 16
financial institutions for a new EUR3,500 million financing which
will enable the acquisition of Auna Tlc, refinance the
outstanding senior facilities of ONO and provide sufficient
funding for the enlarged ONO group to reach free cash flow
positive.

The financing is structured in EUR3,100 million senior secured
facilities, EUR130 million subordinated facility and EUR270
million subordinated high yield bridge.

The self arranged EUR3,100 million senior secured credit
facilities have been fully committed by a club of banks formed by
ABN AMRO, Ahorro Corporacion Financiera, Banco Santander
Central Hispano, Banesto, Bank of Scotland, Caixa Catalunya,
CALYON, Instituto de Credito Oficial (ICO), Fortis Bank, JP
Morgan, Rabobank, Royal Bank of Scotland, SabadellAtlantico,
Societe Generale and WestLB as mandated lead arrangers.  Although
the transaction has been arranged as a club deal, it is
anticipated that there would be general syndication.  This
syndication would be lead by the four bookrunners ABN AMRO, Banco
Santander Central Hispano, CALYON and Fortis Bank.

The EUR130 million subordinated facility has been fully committed
by ABN AMRO, CALYON, Fortis Bank and Banco Santander Central
Hispano as bookrunners and Axis as mandated lead arranger.

The EUR270 million subordinated high yield bridge has been fully
committed by JP Morgan, Royal Bank of Scotland and CALYON as
bookrunners and ABN AMRO, Fortis Bank and WestLB as mandated lead
arrangers.

The EUR3,100 million senior secured credit facilities consists of
EUR3,000 million of senior secured credit facilities in five
separate tranches and a EUR100 million senior secured bank
guarantees tranche.  The senior secured credit facilities, which
have final maturity dates of 31 December 2013, will pay an
initial margin of between 225 and 275 basis points over EURIBOR.
The facilities will contain standard covenants for this type of
transaction.

These new senior secured credit facilities will be used to
partially fund the acquisition of Auna Tlc, to refinance and
replace the existing EUR1,250 million senior credit facilities of
ONO.

Additionally, it will provide sufficient funding for the enlarged
ONO group to reach free cash flow positive and will allow, on the
dates and under the conditions set forth in the indentures
thereunder, the refinancing of ONO's 2011 notes bond debt.  The
EUR130 million subordinated facility and the EUR270 million
subordinated high yield bridge will rank pari passu with the
existing bonds and will be used to fund the acquisition of Auna
Tlc.

ONO expects that the EUR3,500 million financing will close once
the approval of the relevant competition authorities is obtained
for the acquisition of Auna Tlc.

It offers direct access telephony, pay television and Internet
access services to the residential market where it has a

SWISS INTERNATIONAL: Teams up with Qatar Airways, Air Canada
------------------------------------------------------------
Swiss International Air Lines is introducing further attractive
codeshare destinations to expand its route network.  As of
October 1, Doha becomes accessible directly from Zurich with
flights operated by Qatar Airways, as does Ljubljana with Adria
Airways.  And from October 30, passengers will be able to fly
directly from Zurich to Delhi or Toronto thanks to a new
codeshare service operated by Air Canada.  SWISS is also
expanding its range of codeshare flights with Lufthansa.

Four attractive new destinations in Canada, India, Qatar and
Slovenia become available to SWISS customers in October.  The
network expansion is possible thanks to joint undertakings with
partner airlines.  The appeal of the new services is further
enhanced by good connecting possibilities in Zurich, which allow
them to dovetail smoothly within the SWISS route network.

Direct Toronto and Delhi services with Air Canada

SWISS is teaming up with Star Alliance member Air Canada on the
Zurich-Toronto and Zurich-Delhi routes.  Air Canada will connect
the three cities daily using Boeing 767 equipment.  Air Canada
customers, meanwhile, can take advantage of a codeshare
arrangement covering SWISS' flights on the Zurich-Montreal and
Zurich-Mumbai routes.  The new codeshare agreement, which enters
into effect with the start of the winter schedules on October 30,
also extends to further destinations served from the partners'
Toronto, Montreal and Zurich hubs.

Doha with Qatar Airways

Doha will be incorporated into the SWISS route network through
four weekly codeshare services operated by Qatar Airways. The
capital of Qatar thus becomes the latest attractive Middle East
destination available to SWISS customers. These joint flights
become available on October 1.

Ljubljana with Adria Airways

The addition of Ljubljana expands SWISS' route portfolio in
Central Europe.  The ten weekly codeshare flights operated by
Adria Airways between Zurich and the Slovenian capital are
available to SWISS customers as of October 1.

Further destinations with Lufthansa

The collaboration between Lufthansa and SWISS continues to
expand.  The partners' services between Bremen, Leipzig and
Cologne-Bonn and the Frankfurt and Munich hubs will all be
operated as Lufthansa/SWISS codeshares from the start of the
winter schedules, as will all the partners' flights on the
Zurich-Geneva, Zurich-Thessaloniki and Zurich-Alicante routes.

AGUSTAWESTLAND U.K.: Rotor Defects Threaten GBP900 Mln U.S. Deal
----------------------------------------------------------------
Agustawestland U.K.'s contract to build helicopters for the U.S.
presidential fleet may be at risk due to defects found in similar
aircraft operated by the Canadian armed forces.

According to the Western Daily Press, small cracks have been
found on the tail rotor assembly of 15 EH101 helicopters sent to
Canada.  In light of this, people in the industry believe U.S.
rival Sikorsky may capitalize on the matter and lobby against the
contract, citing the president's safety requirements.  The order
for 23 West-designed US101 helicopters is valued at GBP900
million.

The Danish armed forces is also considering delaying acceptance
of 14 EH101 helicopters worth GBP270 million it ordered from the
company while the probe is ongoing.  Last year, it also refused
delivery of the aircraft until problems with sophisticated
software were fixed.

Recently, an ITV West documentary cited tail rotor problems as
the main culprit for the crashes involving Agusta's Lynx military
helicopters, resulting in 40 deaths and serious injuries.

AUTOCARE: Fires 274 Workers
---------------------------
On 9 September 2005, Autocare Distribution Limited and Auto
Handling Limited appointed administrators from
PricewaterhouseCoopers.

Bruce Cartwright, joint administrator, said: "Our financial
review of the business confirmed that there was no scope to
preserve the Autocare Distribution Limited and Auto Handling
Limited businesses intact.  Over the last few days we have
affected an orderly wind-down of the business, which has resulted
in the transfer of contract work to new contractors.  We are
grateful for the immediate support and effort that the customers
have provided to ensure this has happened in an orderly fashion.

"These companies employed 315 individuals.  On the basis that we
did not have any funds to meet the wages and salaries in full,
274 employees were made redundant on 13 September 2005.  The
majority of these redundancies were drivers and we believe that
most will find employment during the course of this week by new
contractors who have taken over the existing contract work.  We
are working closely with the unions and the new contractors on
this matter."

Meanwhile, Autocare U.K. Limited appointed administrators from
PricewaterhouseCoopers on 12 September 2005.

Mr. Cartwright said: "Autocare U.K. operated from three
locations -- Kirriemuir, Immingham and Thurleigh -- and employed
206 people.  In view of the financial position, we were obliged
to close one of the outlets, Thurleigh, with immediate effect and
35 employees at this location were made redundant.  We have
continued to trade the business from the other two key locations
and we are seeking to sell the business and assets on a going
concern basis.  Discussions are currently taking place with
interested parties."

---------------------------------------------------------------
Dignity plc has reported interim results for the 26 weeks to 1
July 2005.

Financial Highlights

(a) underlying profit before tax[*]: up 19.7% to GBP15.8 million
    (2004: GBP13.2 million);

(b) operating profit: up 11.4% to GBP23.4 million (2004: GBP21.0
    million);

(c) revenue: up 8.0% to GBP74.6 million (2004: GBP69.1 million);
    and

(d) interim dividend of 2.75 pence per share (2004: 1.875 pence
    per share).

[*] Before non-recurring finance charges 2004
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Operating Highlights

(a) acquisition of four new funeral home locations, bringing the
    total to 516 homes at 1 July 2005; and

(b) additional six new funeral homes acquired since 1 July 2005.

Peter Hindley, Chief Executive of Dignity plc, said: "We are
pleased to report a strong trading performance in the first 26
weeks of 2005.  Underlying profits before tax increased by almost
20%, achieved on increased revenues that were up 8%, and a 1.7%
increase in the estimated number of deaths in Great Britain,
which was slightly ahead of expectations.

"We continue to grow the core areas of our business organically,
having acquired ten funeral locations as at the end of August.
We continue to look for new opportunities.  The Group is trading
well and the outlook remains positive for the rest of the year."

               Report of Chairman Richard Connell

I am pleased to report a strong trading performance in the first
26 weeks of 2005.  Operating profit reported under IFRS has
increased by 11.4% to GBP23.4 million (2004: GBP21.0 million).

The Group performed 36,000 (2004: 35,100) funerals from our
network of 516 funeral homes around the country and 21,200 (2004:
19,800) cremations from our 22 crematoria.  Total estimated
deaths for the 26-week period to 1 July 2005 in Great Britain
were 300,800 compared to 295,800 in the comparative 26-week
period in 2004.  This is an increase of 1.7%, which is marginally
ahead of our expectations for the period.  The Board's view on
death rates continues to rely on government forecasts and its
view on medium-term death rates remains unchanged.

The number of unfulfilled pre-arranged funeral plans at 1 July
2005 was 171,500 (2004: 170,200).

Underlying Profit Before Tax and Dividend

Underlying profit before tax in the first 26 weeks of the year
was GBP15.8 million compared to GBP13.2 million in the previous
period, an increase of 19.7%.  This was slightly ahead of our
expectations and is stated before non-recurring finance charges
in 2004.  After taking account of these items, the reported
profit before taxation was GBP15.8 million (2004: loss GBP(2.1)
million).

The Board has declared an interim dividend of 2.75 pence per
share (2004: 1.875 pence per share), which will be paid on 28
October 2005 to shareholders on the register at 7 October 2005.
This is an increase of 10% on the annualized 2004 interim
dividend.  This is consistent with the Group's policy of
progressing the dividend based on the Group's performance.

Developments

As part of its stated strategy, the Group acquired four funeral
home locations in the period to 1 July 2005, funded from existing
cash reserves and internally generated cash flows.  In addition,
in July, the Group acquired a further six funeral home locations.
This brings the total investment in acquisitions in 2005 to
GBP6.9 million.  The Group continues to look for further suitable
opportunities.

Outlook

The Group has recorded a strong performance in the first 26 weeks
of this year.  We expect the future development of the Group to
be achieved by a combination of further acquisitions, seeking
additional partners for our pre-arranged funeral plan business
and from time to time, the opening of new locations.  The Group
continues to trade well and the Board's expectations for the
remainder of 2005 remain positive.

Finally, I would like to thank all our staff for their continued
hard work and dedication to client service.

FOCUS DIY: Slowdown in Consumer Spending Triggers Ratings Review
----------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services placed its 'B+' long-term
corporate credit ratings on Focus DIY (Finance) PLC and Focus DIY
(Investments) Ltd., the parent companies of U.K. home-improvement
retailer Focus, on CreditWatch with negative implications.

At the same time, Standard & Poor's affirmed its '1' recovery
rating, which is not on CreditWatch, on the senior secured
facilities of Focus.  The CreditWatch placement is a result of
Standard & Poor's reassessment of the risk profile of the U.K.
home-improvement industry, given its larger-than-expected
susceptibility to the challenging macro environment.  The
negative implications reflect that the industry trends are likely
to have implications for Focus.

"We estimate that, similar to its peers, the group is likely to
have experienced a deterioration in sales and earnings over the
crucial third quarter in fiscal 2005," said Standard & Poor's
credit analyst Sunita Kara.  "A material reduction in earnings
would have an adverse impact on the group's liquidity position,
and in particular on the group's financial covenants."

The U.K. home-improvement industry is currently being challenged
by the slowdown in consumer spending and the sharp decline in
residential property sales, as recently evidenced by Focus'
competitor B&Q, which is part of Kingfisher PLC
(BBB+/Negative/A-2).  These factors point to a difficult trading
backdrop for Focus, compounded by the group's reliance on the
decorative segment, which in Standard & Poor's opinion is more
competitive and exposed to retail consumption trends than the
building trade segment.  In addition, Focus has a highly
leveraged financial profile giving the group only modest
flexibility to accommodate a deterioration in earnings.

Standard & Poor's aims to resolve the CreditWatch after meeting
with Focus' management to discuss prospects for the industry and
the group, in addition to the evolution of the group's credit
metrics and liquidity position.

"The ratings could be affirmed at the current level or downgraded
depending on our assessment of forthcoming financial data," added
Ms. Kara.

"If there are no immediate liquidity concerns, we currently
assess the downgrade possibility will be limited to one notch."

MG ROVER: Nanjing, SAIC Find Ways to Jointly Develop Rover Brand
----------------------------------------------------------------
Nanjing Automobile (Group) Corporation and Shanghai Automotive
Industry Corporation are reportedly close to signing a deal for
the production of MG Rover cars in China.

The deal will see Nanjing manufacture Rover engines and small
cars, while SAIC will build the bigger and more modern Rover 75
model, the Sunday Times said.  Both firms wooed MG Rover after
its collapse in April, but Nanjing clinched the deal with its
GBP53 million offer in July.  SAIC, however, managed to acquire
the intellectual property rights to several Rover models.

Earlier, The Mirror, in another report, revealed Chinese workers
have arrived at the Longbridge plant to begin shipping machinery
to Nanjing Automobile's eastern China headquarters.  While the
reported agreement with SAIC could clear the way for Nanjing to
restart production in China, the revival of Longbridge operations
remain hanging.  Nanjing has already agreed to build sports cars
at the plant with GB Sports Car Company, but it has yet to
present concrete plans for MG Rover.  SAIC, on the other hand, is
still assessing whether it could begin car assembly in the U.K.

(i) basic loss per share before exceptional items and

               Report of Chairman David Ellingham

I am pleased to present the Interim results for the six months
ended 30 June 2005.

The results demonstrate the progress we are making in returning
the Group to profitability.  Compared with the same period last
year, the loss on ordinary activities before exceptional items
and amortization has been reduced from GBP640,554 to GBP173,215.
The profit on ordinary activities after interest, amortization of
goodwill and exceptional items is GBP259,538 (2004: loss
GBP1,083,952).

Financial Results

Turnover for the continuing business increased from GBP2.72
million to GBP3.21 million, an increase of 18%.  Furthermore,
gross margins from continuing activities have improved to 26.8%
from 9.1%.

As we continue to bring the Group's operating base to an
appropriate and sustainable level ongoing administrative expenses
have fallen to GBP868,658 a reduction of 27.3% compared to the
same period last year.

Losses from continuing operations before interest, amortization
of goodwill and exceptional items were GBP46,884, reduced from
GBP296,879.  The basic and fully diluted earnings per share for
the six months ended 30th June 2005 was 0.06 pence compared to a
basic loss of 0.26 pence in the previous period.  The basic and
fully diluted loss per share before exceptional items and
amortization of goodwill for the six months ended 30 June 2005
was 0.12 pence compared to 0.19 pence in the previous period.

During the period the U.S. operations, motor racing titles and
the Good Ski Guide title were sold and accordingly have been
shown as discontinued in both the current period and comparative
periods.  The terms of the U.S. sale mean that there is no
trading reported for the group after 31 December 2004.  The
profits generated from the sale of these assets are shown under
exceptional items.

Publishing - Custom and Contract

This division consists of Profile Pursuit and Profile Business
Intelligence.  Revenue is generated mainly from the sale of
advertising space in controlled circulation publications.
Additional revenue is generated by sponsored reports.

During the six months under review the now wholly U.K. turnover
improved by GBP255,960, an increase of 14.5%, as we continue to
introduce new and more regular titles.

Publishing - Other

The remainder of the Group's publishing activities comprise of
Profile Sports Media and ProgrammeMaster.

During the six months under review the turnover of this division
has improved by GBP231,580, an increase of 24.2%.  The increase
in turnover reflects the new contracts achieved during this
period.  Further other opportunities for this division have been
identified and are currently being pursued.

Current Trading

The Group remains committed to maintaining tight cost controls
and will introduce new titles and initiatives when appropriate.
Cash flow remains a priority.  As previously announced, the
Company is in discussion with its advisers to raise funds in
order to exercise the option entered into with its bankers and
provide additional working capital to finance the continuing
improvement of revenues.

I would like to thank shareholders and employees for their
continued support during the period.  In particular, I would also
like to thank John Webber, our former Chairman, for the
operational support he gave during his tenure and for his
continuing financial support to the Company through his loan.

We look forward to implementing our plans for a fundraising to
secure the future of the Company.

WOOLWORTHS GROUP: Loss Swells to GBP36.6 Million Under IFRS
-----------------------------------------------------------
Prior to the announcement of interim results for the half-year to
30 July 2005, Woolworths Group plc has released its unaudited
financial results for the half-year to 31 July 2004 restated
under International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) as part
of the process for the adoption of IFRS as its primary accounting
basis for the year ending 28 January 2006.

The financial results for the year ending 29 January 2005
restated under IFRS were announced on 5 July 2005.

The key changes to Woolworths' reported financial information
under IFRS as at 31 July 2004 remained:

(a) recognition of all employee benefit related obligations,
    principally pensions and share based payments;

(b) recognition of lease incentives received over the entire
    term of the lease rather than up to the first market rent
    review;

(c) amortization of goodwill credited back to the income
    statement; and

(d) recognition of deferred tax liabilities on temporary
    differences.

For the half-year ended 31 July 2004, the impact on losses from
the adoption of IFRS is an increase in loss before tax,
exceptional costs and goodwill amortization of GBP3.7 million
from GBP32.9 million to GBP36.6 million.  The loss after tax
increases from GBP23.0 million to GBP24.3 million.  Net assets
are reduced by GBP84.4 million from GBP429.7 million to GBP345.3
million at 31 July 2004.

None of the adjustments arising from IFRS relate to cash, and
therefore there is no impact on reported cash flows.

Woolworths will announce interim results for the period ended 30
July 2005 on Wednesday 21 September 2005.

                            *   *   *

Woolworths Group plc is principally a U.K. retailer focused on
the home, family and entertainment.  The Group also operates the
entertainment businesses E.UK, 2 Entertain and Streets Online.

In August, Woolworths sold MVC Entertainment Limited for
GBP5.5 million to a group of retail investors led by Chris
Steed, Managing Director of Argyll Partners.  The sale was
completed on 30 July 2005 and the consideration was
paid in cash at completion.

In addition there will be a further cash inflow during the year
resulting from working capital reductions estimated to be GBP5
million - GBP10 million at Entertainment U.K. Ltd.

In July, Woolworths said that the retail climate has remained
difficult.  Woolworths Mainchain like-for-like sales decreased by
4.4% in the 24 weeks to 16 July 2005.  It said that against the
challenging retail environment, it continues to be disciplined
about controlling costs and stock while taking action to improve
the Group's businesses.

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.
