VSEOBECNA ZDRAVOTNI: Under Forced Administration
------------------------------------------------
The health ministry on Thursday placed Vseobecna zdravotni
pojistovna Ceske republiky (The General Health Insurance
Company, VZP) under forced administration.  Antonin Pecenka was
appointed administrator.

VZP management now has to seek approval from the administrator
before making any decision.  The VZP may challenge the measure,
but it cannot delay its effect.

Prime Minister Jiri Paroubek, meanwhile, has called on VZP
director Jirina Musilkova to resign post-haste.  Health Minister
David Rath complains that she is not cooperating with the
administrator, especially in producing agreements and invoices.
Ms. Musilkova claims that, as is the practice at VZP, any
requests must be submitted in writing, and this applies to the
administrator.

Mr. Rath told the press Ms. Musilkova's resignation will speed
up the election of a new VZP management.  According to him, the
administration would end as soon as Ms. Musilkova's successor is
elected sometime in January.  Ms. Musilkova has ignored the call
to step down.  Under current laws, she cannot be fired.

VZP has CZK10 billion in debt and annual budget of CZK200
billion.

LEGO GROUP: Considers Outsourcing Production Abroad
---------------------------------------------------
Danish town Billund, home to Lego bricks, might lose that
distinction in two years.  According to The Age, all Lego-
producing parts of the town might be shifted to Asia or Eastern
Europe as the company struggles to survive.  A decision will be
made in 2007, the report said.

Chief Executive Jorgen Vig Knudstorp, who took over the position
last year from the founder's grandson, Kjeld Kirk Christiansen,
is trying to re-establish the firm's core business.  He will
somehow try to revive the basic brick structure of the toy,
which has already been modified in recent years.

Lego was founded by carpenter Kirk Christiansen in 1932.  He
bought the patent to the English-made toy bricks in 1949.  The
company made its first loss in 1998.  Last year, it made its
largest loss at US$417 million.  It has already sold four
Legoland theme parks and reduced workforce at the factories in
Billund, Jutland from 3,500 to 2,500.  It employs approximately
7,400 worldwide.

LEGO GROUP: Dropping Suppliers to Save Cash
-------------------------------------------
Lego Group is cutting the number of its suppliers by more than
78% to lower price and save on cost, according to daily Boersen.

It will reduce suppliers to 2,500 from 11,500 to save between
DKK150 million and DKK200 million, said Niels Duedahl, vice
president at Lego's Global Supply Chain.  The cuts will be
undertaken over the next six months, the bulk in December.  Lego
might also prefer global suppliers of office supplies,
stationery, and packaging to Danish ones, the report said.

"We have a need for the shortest possible time of delivery, so
we cannot depend to have packaging delivered from Europe to
USA," Mr. Duedahl told the daily.

The LEGO Group is a privately held, family-owned company, based
in Billund, Denmark.  It was founded in 1932, employing
approximately 7,400 worldwide.  LEGO Holding A/S is the parent
of both the Danish and the Swiss parts of the Group.  In July,
it sold four of its family theme parks in England, Germany,
California and Denmark to The Blackstone Group for EUR375
million to consolidate its business.

Lego is implementing an Action Plan launched in 2004 to mitigate
a serious earnings crisis in the company.  The plan envisages a
leaner but financially stronger and more focused group.  Lego
had total assets of DKK8,089 million in 2004.

CLUB MEDITERRANEE: Sells EUR100 Million Worth of Assets
-------------------------------------------------------
Property and leisure group Heron International has acquired four
hotels from Club Mediterranee for more than EUR100 million (GBP7
million), according to Times Online.

Two of the hotels are in the French Alps in Val Thorens and
Tignes Val Claret.  The other two are in Sicily and in Cadiz,
Spain.  The properties are held on long lease and have land for
future developments.

Earlier, Club Mediterranee also agreed to sell assets of four of
its villages (Val d'Isere, Peisey-Vallandry, La Plagne 4 and
Opio) to Gecina Group for EUR225 million.  Club Mediterranee
said it will break even in 2005 for the first time in five
years, as it announced the sale.

HUIS CLOS: Struggles to get more out of Restructuring this year
---------------------------------------------------------------
The restructuring measures implemented by Huis-Clos in the
second half will not bear fruit in time, Les Echos says.

As a result, the maker of PVC windows and doors expects between
EUR6 million and EUR11 million in net losses this year and EUR87
million in turnover.

A EUR7.7 million loss, on the back of EUR41.1 million in
turnover in the first half, forced the company to start a EUR5
million cost-saving program and carry out a EUR6 million capital
hike.  Its full effects, however, will be felt only next year.

As part of the restructuring, the company also sold its internal
training center.  So far, production is back to normal while the
order book is full again.

REFCO SECURITIES: Closure Imminent
----------------------------------
Refco Securities S.A., the French arm of U.S. futures brokerage
firm Refco Inc., will be closed, according to Les Echos.

Refco Securities went into administration at the request of
chairman Alain Ichoua Felous.  The decision came after two
directors of the division -- Philip Roger Bennett and Santo
Maggio -- were implicated in the parent company's scandal.  Mr.
Maggio is the head of Refco's most controversial offshore unit.

Judicial administrator Regis Valliot says Refco Securities had
been profitable before the scandal broke out.  It reported pre-
tax turnover of around EUR40 million in 2004.  Its assets in
Euronext, BCC, BNP Paribas, Societe Generale, Parel have since
been seized.  The court in Paris required a surety of EUR30
million for the assets on Nov. 8.

Headquartered in New York, New York, Refco Inc. --
http://www.refco.com/-- is a diversified financial services
organization with operations in 14 countries and an extensive
global institutional and retail client base.  Its reputation has
been damaged after it disclosed on Oct. 10 that Chief Executive
Phillip R. Bennett had secretly borrowed US$430 million from the
company.  The debt was discovered only after he paid it.

The Company and 23 affiliates filed for chapter 11 protection on
Oct. 17, 2005 (Bankr. S.D.N.Y. Case No. 05-60006).  J. Gregory
Milmoe, Esq., at Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP,
represent the Debtors in their restructuring efforts.  Refco
reported US$16.5 billion in assets and US$16.8 billion to the
bankruptcy court.

DAIMLERCHRYSLER AG: Managers Cleared in Insider Trading Probe
-------------------------------------------------------------
Stuttgart prosecutors have ended their insider-trading probe
against two of DaimlerChrysler AG's managers over stock deals
prior to the resignation of CEO Juergen Schrempp, said the
Associated Press.

DaimlerChrysler Spokesman Toni Melfi said prosecutors have found
no evidence of wrongdoing by Board Member Ruediger Grube or
Communications Chief Hartmut Schick.

Stuttgart prosecutors, who could not be reached Friday, launched
an investigation in September following a report from Germany's
financial services regulator BaFin.  BaFin said they found
"grounds" to suspect illegal trades involving Daimler shares
that went up prior to the Schrempp announcement on July 28.

Mr. Schrempp, who has worked with the company for a decade, will
be replaced as CEO by Dieter Zetsche on January 1.

Earlier this month, a United Nations-backed probe revealed that
DaimlerChrysler was among companies that paid Saddam Hussein's
regime kickbacks and illegal surcharges.  The report disclosed
that about half of the 4,500 companies involved in the U.N. oil-
for-food program paid US$1.8 billion in bribe and other illegal
fees.

DaimlerChrysler is also being investigated by the U.S. Justice
Department over bribery claims at the Mercedes Car Group.

DAIMLERCHRYSLER AG: Sells 12.4% Stake in Mitsubishi Motors
----------------------------------------------------------
DaimlerChrysler AG has agreed to sell its 12.4% stake in
Mitsubishi Motors Corp. to U.S.-based Goldman Sachs for an
undisclosed amount.

The disposal is understood to be part of DaimlerChrysler's
efforts to refocus its resources to its Chrysler and Mercedes
businesses, said the United Press International.

According to the company, the sale will improve its 2005
financial income by approximately EUR500 million.
DaimlerChrysler will reveal the amount involved in the
transaction and the effect on its finances by end of this month
at the latest.

It added that its current partnership deals with MMC, such as
the joint development and production of engines, passenger cars,
and pickup trucks, will not be affected and will proceed as
earlier agreed.

The two companies also mulled renewing and stretching current
projects.  MMC said it "will maintain its relationship with
DaimlerChrysler as business partners where both parties continue
working on individual alliance projects that are mutually
beneficial."

In 2000, the company became MMC's largest shareholder by
acquiring a third stake in the Japanese firm.  DaimlerChrysler
started selling its shares last year after quality problems and
other financial issues surrounding Mitsubishi delivered less-
than-expected profits for the German manufacturer, according to
the New York Times.  It also prompted DaimlerChrysler to stop
injecting more money into MMC.

Since last year, DaimlerChrysler has been trying to drop its
tie-ups and dispose of its investments in other companies.  It
has sold its stake in Hyundai Motor Co. Ltd. and put MTU
Friedrichshafen up for sale.

Meanwhile, MMC has seen its sales in Japan plummet after it
admitted that it had systematically concealed vehicle defects to
avoid recalls.  The firm reported on Thursday half-year loss of
JPY63.8 billion (US$539.6 million), down from JPY178.8 billion
in the same period last year.  Sales, however, plunged 7% to
JPY991.3 billion (US$8.4 billion) from JPY1.07 trillion in 2004.

IWKA AG: Third-quarter Results Slip into Red
--------------------------------------------
A deeper restructuring, coupled by falling investments from
carmakers, conspired to pull south the third quarter and first
nine months results of engineering group IWKA.

Third-quarter net results swung into the red, from EUR11.2
million last year to -EUR33.5 million, as group EBIT tanked from
EUR18.1 million to EUR0.5 million.  Turnover for the period was
the lone bright spot as it improved to EUR479.3 million from
EUR442.8 million.

Results for the first nine months were not much better.  Group
EBIT tanked to EUR14.6 million from EUR56.6 million, while
turnover dropped slightly to EUR1.32 billion from EUR1.34
billion.

The group will sell loss-making subsidiary Ex-Cell-O, which
posted EUR20.5 million in losses, below book value.  This in
turn will result in a considerable write-off; hence, the company
forecasts a net loss this year.

MTU AERO: S&P Upgrades Outlook to Positive
------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services revised its outlook on
Germany-based aircraft engine and component manufacturer MTU
Aero Engines Holding AG and related entity MTU Aero Engines
Investment GmbH to positive from stable, reflecting the steady
progress made by the group in improving operational performance
and strengthening credit ratios.

At the same time, Standard & Poor's affirmed its 'BB' corporate
credit rating on MTU, and its 'BB' corporate credit and 'B+'
subordinated debt ratings on MTU Aero Engines Investment. At
Sept. 30, 2005, MTU reported net debt adjusted for pensions of
EUR646 million ($755 million).

"MTU's stronger performance and cash flow generation in the
first nine months of 2005 has enabled the group to strengthen
its financial-risk profile by reducing outstanding debt and
improving credit ratios," said Standard & Poor's credit analyst
Leigh Bailey.

The ratings on MTU, however, continue to reflect the group's
relatively weak business profile, which is constrained by the
group's reliance on the cyclical civil aviation industry,
vulnerability to the weakness of the U.S. dollar, and its
relatively modest size compared with original equipment
manufacturers.  MTU benefits from its leading positions in niche
markets and is protected by its long-term strategic alliance
with Pratt & Whitney engines (part of United Technologies Corp.
(A/Stable/A-1), participation in engine programs through a
number of risk and revenue sharing partnerships, and role as a
strategic partner for the German Air Force.

Standard & Poor's expects MTU to progressively improve its
operating profit and cash flows through higher civil volumes,
driven by air traffic recovery and rising aircraft deliveries
and a decline in R&D spending.  Should the industry environment
remain favorable, and MTU is able to maintain its credit ratios
and leverage at the current levels, the long-term rating on the
group could be raised to 'BB+'.

Conversely, if profitability or cash flow metrics become
adversely affected by such factors as the group's potential
vulnerability to a weakening of the U.S. dollar against the
euro, or a deterioration of the commercial-aviation revenue
environment, then the outlook could be revised to stable.

PROSIEBENSAT.1 MEDIA: Posts Record Third-quarter Profit
-------------------------------------------------------
Recovering television group ProSiebenSat.1 Media AG has booked
its largest third-quarter figures ever, Die Welt says.

Pre-tax profit for the period soared to EUR38.5 million from
EUR4.3 million in 2004 as group turnover rose 15% to EUR416
million.  Similarly, pre-tax profit for the first nine months
swelled 67% to EUR202 million and turnover by 4.6% to EUR1.35
billion.

The company credits the acquisition of TV channel 9Live for the
third-quarter turnover, which rode on the back of rising
advertising revenue.  The figures defy the current downturn in
TV advertising.

Publishing group Axel Springer Verlag Springer is just waiting
for regulatory approval for its takeover of ProSiebenSat.1.
Already, it controls a majority stake it acquired for EUR2.5
billion from a group of investors led by Haim Saban.  Springer
expects the local antitrust authority to rule before Christmas.

ProSiebenSat.1 was formed in 2000 with the merger of Germany's
leading broadcasters ProSieben Media AG and Sat.1.  It is the
largest and most successful television corporation in Germany
with four stations -- Sat.1, ProSieben, kabel eins and N24.

RABA RT: Huge Nine-month Loss Reverses Last Year's Profit
---------------------------------------------------------
Despite a sharp decline in operating losses, Raba Rt failed to
prevent a huge consolidated net loss in the first nine months of
2005, Budapest Business Journal says.

The automotive parts maker posted an operating loss of HUF1.89
billion for the period, a huge drop from HUF3.94 billion a year
ago.  For the third quarter alone, operating loss slipped 31% to
HUF369 million.

Still, the company failed to duplicate last year's HUF1.78
billion profit, as consolidated net loss amounted HUF3.26
billion.   Sales revenue, which rose nearly 25% to HUF33.28
billion, with export accounting for HUF21.79 billion, also
failed to offset the losses.

Raba is owned by EBRD (11.44%), DRB Hicom Group (11.44%), the
Gyor City Council (7.58%) and Raba Investments (5.11%).

ALITALIA SPA: Share Offering Opens

CIRIO FINANZIARIA: First Pacific Acquires Del Monte
---------------------------------------------------
First Pacific Co. Ltd. has won the bid for Cirio Finanziaria's
40% stake in Philippine-based food group Del Monte Pacific Ltd.,
Manila Standard says.

First Pacific bested the Lorenzo family and business tycoon
Lucio Tan with its US$163.6 million bid, or US$38.18 per share.
The group plans to make a mandatory cash offer for the remaining
Del Monte shares once the deal is signed.  First Pacific expects
to seal the takeover by Jan. 15, 2006.

Manuel Pangilinan, First Pacific managing director and chief
executive officer, said, "This transaction opens a new horizon
for First Pacific as we build on the success we have made in
creating superbrands in the Philippines and Indonesia.  First
Pacific has studied the business of Del Monte and is
enthusiastic about its potential."

First Pacific added the acquisition was in line with its
strategy of driving growth through acquisition and complements
Indofood's business.  The group said, "It also gives First
Pacific the potential synergies offered by two complementary
businesses, Del Monte and Indofood."

First Pacific's core holdings consist of Indofood Sukses Makmur
Tbk, one of largest noodle-makers; Philippine Long Distance
Telephone Co., the Philippines biggest telecom group; and
property developer Metro Pacific Corp.

Del Monte Pacific is the world's largest pineapple producer.
Its integrated pineapple growing and processing facility has an
estimated market capitalization of about US$425 million.  It is
10% owned by the Singapore government; the remaining 30% by the
public.  Listed in Singapore, the company owns the Del Monte
trademark in the Philippines and the brand rights for the India
subcontinent territories.

Cirio Finanziaria, the canned tomatoes and fruit producer, has
been selling assets to pay creditors.  It was forced into
liquidation after defaulting on EUR1 billion bonds and investors
rejected a restructuring plan.

CIRIO FINANZIARIA: Banca Intesa Trial to Continue in Milan
----------------------------------------------------------
The case against Banca Intesa over fraudulent bond placement has
been transferred to another court, Il Sole 24 Ore says.

A Monza court allowed the transfer of the case to Milan.  The
court also excluded from the case Cirio bondholders who have
already received payment from Banca Intesa.

Banca Intesa, one of Cirio's bond managers, requested the
transfer to Milan, arguing the Monza court was not competent to
hear it.

Several depositors loss their investment in Cirio when it
defaulted on EUR1 billion of bonds in 2003.  In March, the
finance ministry fined the banks that participated in the
irregular bond placement.  Aside from Banca Intesa, Sanpaolo-
Imi, Montepaschi, BNL, Unicredito, Capitalia, Cassa di Risparmio
di Firenze, Banca Antonveneta, Banca Popolare di Ancona and
Credito Emiliano were also fined for violating financial
intermediation regulations when they sold the bonds to
individual investors between 2000 and 2002.

COMPAGNIA ITALIANA: 'White Knight' Backs out
--------------------------------------------
Businessman Benito Benedini is leaving the group set up to
rescue troubled tour operator Compagnia Italiana di Turismo
(CIT), Il Sole 24 Ore says.

In a letter to CIT, Mr. Benedini cited the failure of the
company and the rescue group to renegotiate its bank debt and
avail of a EUR65 million public aid as reasons for his
departure.

Shareholders Accor and Marciana Finanziaria, meanwhile, are
reportedly interested in joining the rescue group.  CIT
currently needs around EUR70 million to stay afloat.

CIT, whose clients include the Italian parliament, was a
subsidiary of Italian national rail group Ferrovie dello Stato
before investors took it private in 1996.  Its leading
shareholders are vice-chairman Gianvittorio Gandolfi, with
39.4%; European Development Capital Limited Partnership, 14.6%;
and French hotels group Accor, 10%.

TISCALI S.P.A.: Q3, 9-month Revenue up by Double Digits
-------------------------------------------------------
The Board of Directors of Tiscali S.p.A. has approved the
Group's third quarter results as of 30 September 2005.

Group revenues in 3Q05 came to EUR185.7 million, up 16% compared
to 3Q04.  In the first nine months revenues amounted to EUR539.3
million, up 13% compared to the same period of 2004 (EUR479.4
million).  The increase is mainly driven by Internet access and
the U.K. market.

The significant growth of ADSL drives the access revenues.  ADSL
revenues, amounting to EUR90.6 million in 3Q05, showed a 45%
increase compared to 3Q04 and a 12% increase compared to 2Q05.
In the first nine months of 2005 ADSL revenues amounted to
EUR237.1 million, around 59% of access revenues, and up 58%
compared to 9M05 (EUR150.3 million, 44% on access revenues).

In the third quarter, ADSL new adds were around 160,000, taking
total ADSL active users, as of 30 September 2005, to over 1.48
million (+8% versus 30 June 2005).  The figure is net of the
disposal of around 60,000 ADSL users in The Netherlands to KPN
at the end of July 2005); 280,000 users were unbundled.

Dial-up revenues in 3Q05 stood at EUR48.7 million, compared to
EUR57.7 million in 3Q04.  The decrease was mainly due by the
migration of dial-up users towards ADSL technology.  In
particular, the company underlines the lower weight of dial-up
revenues on total access revenues from 48% as of September 2004
to around 41% at the end of September 2005.  Active dial-up
customers were around 3.38 million, slightly down compared to
the figure registered at end June 2005, also due to the
seasonality affecting third quarter.

In the first nine months of the year dial-up revenues stood at
EUR164.9 million, down 16% compared to EUR195.1 million
registered in 9M04.  In 3Q05, voice revenues were EUR21.6
million (12% on revenues), compared to EUR21.5 million (13% on
total revenues) registered in 3Q04.  This result does not
reflect the refocus of traditional voice offering towards voice
over IP products that allow profitability enhancement.

In the first nine months of 2005 voice revenues were EUR65.6
million (12% on revenues), down 6% compared to EUR69.6 million
(15% on revenues) in 9M04.  The decrease was partially offset by
the introduction of "bundled" services of access and voice
(CPS).

Revenues generated by business services, in third quarter, stood
at EUR16.8 million (9% on revenues), up 49% compared to EUR11.3
million (7% on total revenues) in 3Q04, thanks to commercial
refocus.  Business revenues in the nine months were EUR45.3
million (8% on total revenues) up 19% compared to EUR38.1
million (8% on total revenues) registered in 9M04.

Media and VAS (value added services) revenues in third quarter
stood at EUR6.4 million (3% on total revenues), compared to
EUR7.6 million (5% on total revenues) in 3Q04.

In the first nine months, media and VAS revenues were EUR21
million (4% on total revenues) down (5%) compared to EUR22
million (5% on total revenues) in 9M04.

Gross Operating Result (EBITDA), before amortization,
depreciation, provision and write-downs, in third quarter 2005
was EUR31.7 million (17% on revenues), up 25% compared to
EUR25.4 million in 3Q04 (16% on revenues).  Gross Operating
Result in the first nine months stood at EUR84.1 million, up 85%
versus 9M04 (EUR45.5 million).  As a percentage of revenues,
EBITDA increased from 9% to 16%.

Such positive operating results have been achieved, thanks to
revenue growth and to cost reductions and efficiencies.  The
trend shown by variable costs linked to the increase of ADSL ULL
customers within access segment determined the improvement also
at Gross Margin level (Figure non reported in the P&L statement,
as not included in the IAS/IFRS standards, but given as
additional information) which increased, as a percentage of
revenues, from 49% in 9M04 to 54% in 9M05.

Operating costs in 3Q03 amounted to EUR63.5 million +16% versus
EUR55 million in 3Q04, with percentage on revenues stable at
34%.  In 9M05 operating costs were EUR203.5 million, up 17%
versus 9M04 (EUR174.6 million) and with a percentage of revenues
going from 36% in 9M04 to 38% in 9M05.

In particular: Marketing costs in 3Q05 stood at EUR24.1 million
(13% of revenues), up 51% versus EUR16 million (10% of revenues)
posted in 3Q04.  Marketing costs in the first nine months of
2005 amounted to EUR89.0 million (17% of revenues), a 56% growth
versus EUR57.2 million (14% of revenues) in 9M04. Marketing
costs were mostly dedicated to promoting ADSL.  Personnel costs
in 3Q05 amounted to EUR28.4 million, stable versus 3Q04 in
absolute terms, but decreasing as a percentage of revenues (15%
in 3Q05 versus 18% in 3Q04).  In the first nine months of 2005,
personnel costs amounted to EUR82.6 million, lower than the
EUR83.4 million in 9M04 while still posting a sizeable
improvement as a percentage of revenues (15% in 3Q04 versus 17%
3Q05).  Employees at the end of September were 1,850.

Other operating costs in 3Q05 were EUR11 million (6% of
revenues), compared to EUR10.3 million (6% of revenues) in 3Q04.
In the first nine months G&A stood at EUR31.9 million compared
to EUR33.9 million in first nine months of 2004, showing in 2005
a lower incidence on revenues (6%) compared to 2004 (7% of
revenues).

Operating Result (EBIT) in 3Q05 was negative EUR7.8 million, an
improvement compared to the loss of EUR8.1 million of 3Q04.  In
9M05 EBIT was negative EUR54.2 million, a 28% improvement versus
the EUR75 million loss posted in 9M04.  The improvement was due
to the better operating performance described in the previous
paragraph.

In the first nine months 2005, amortization stood at EUR101.3
million versus EUR89.9 million posted as of 30 September 2004.
The increase is due to higher investments for the development of
the ULL network and the ADSL products (modem and activation
costs).

Provisions for risks and write-downs in 9M05 (together with
certain restructuring costs) amounted to EUR36.9 million versus
EUR30.7 million in 9M04.  Provisions and write-downs in 3Q05 of
EUR6.5 million were mainly attributable to bad debt.

Results from continuing operations as of 30 September 2005
before tax and after interest (EBT) was negative EUR77 million,
a 26% improvement versus the loss of EUR104.5 million in the
first nine months of 2005.  If the net profit of EUR120.6
million deriving from discontinuing operations is added, which
are tax free and largely deriving from the EUR144 million
capital gain on the sale of Liberty Surf, net of the results for
the period and of the charges related to the disposal, the total
result before tax for the Tiscali as of 30 September 2005 was
approximately EUR43.6 million.

The Tiscali Group posts, for the 9 months ended 2005, a net
result close to breakeven (-EUR1.5 million), versus a loss of
EUR148.6 million for 9M03.  The net result includes EUR45.1
million of tax charge, which relates to the utilization of tax
losses carried forward accounted for at year-end 2004 in
relation to the holding company Tiscali S.p.A.  It is worth
mentioning that such tax charge is not a tax debt, but it is
related to a partial utilization of tax losses carried forward.
The posting of tax losses carried forward, if any, will be
determined with full year 2005 results.

Investments

The expansion of the ULL networks and the other investments for
the installation and activation of new ADSL customers, in 9M05
generated investments for EUR96.7 million, of which EUR65.7
million related to investments in intangible assets and around
EUR31 million of investments network equipment.  Such
investments allowed to reach and activate 10 co-locations in the
U.K. (mainly concentrated in London area), and over 330 co-
locations in Italy and over 220 co-locations in the Netherlands.
In Germany, where the company is currently testing ULL in
Frankfurt area, the first investments should start by the end of
2005.

Financial position

As of 30 September 2005, the Tiscali Group's cash resources
totaled EUR39 million, while net debt stood at EUR269 million
(EUR259 million as of 30 June 2005).  In July, the EUR250
million bonds were reimbursed.

On 8 August, Tiscali reached an agreement for a EUR150 million
senior secured credit facility with Silver Point Finance LLC.
The facility comprises two tranches, each with a three-year
duration.  The first tranche of EUR50 million was drawn in
August 2005, while the second EUR100 million tranche will be
made available from September 2006 for the reimbursement of the
2006 E-L Bond.

Operating cash flow 3Q05, excluding sales of non-strategic
assets, and including financial charges, was negative EUR23
million.  Third quarter result was affected by annual financial
charges for EUR9 million related to "Equity Linked Bond" due in
September 2006 and from investments (around EUR29 million) for
the development of ULL infrastructure network.  Considering
those elements, the company highlights a decrease in operating
cash burn compared to previous quarters (-EUR46 million in 1Q05
2005, -EUR20 million in 2Q05), in line with Group's business
plan.

2005 Targets

Tiscali announces these targets for 2005 (IFRS compliant):
turnover of approximately EUR750 million; Gross Operating Profit
(EBITDA) of over EUR100 million; over 1.7 million broadband
users; and investment at 15% of revenues.

VOLARE GROUP: Alitalia Confirms Plan to Take over Rival
-------------------------------------------------------
Ailing national carrier Alitalia may buy equally troubled rival
Volare Group, AFX News says.

In an interview with Corriere della Sera, Alitalia Chairman
Giancarlo Cimoli confirmed the plan after the airline received
clearance for its EUR1 billion capital hike Friday.

TCR Europe reported in August 10, 2005 that Volare is looking
for a possible buyer to improve its operational capacity.
Volare currently needs fresh capital to expand its fleet.  The
group is also aiming for a strategic partnership with another
airline to ensure it has enough planes to cover all flight
slots.  Alitalia has been lined-up as possible buyer for the
group.

Volare declared insolvency on Nov. 22, 2004, citing huge debt
and heavy losses.  The group then went under extraordinary
administration, which allowed it to be protected from creditors
while resuming daily operations.  Volare went out of
administration in spring, after beating its EUR7 million revenue
forecast by around EUR3.8 million.

WIND TELECOMUNICAZIONI: EUR1.25 Bln Unsecured Notes Rated 'B-'
--------------------------------------------------------------
Standard & Poor's Ratings Services assigned its 'B-' rating to
Italian integrated telecommunications services provider Wind
Telecomunicazioni S.p.A.'s (B+/Positive/--) EUR1.25 billion
senior unsecured notes maturing 2015.

The gross proceeds of the notes issue will be used to refinance
the company's EUR1.25 billion high-yield bridge loan facility.

The ratings on Wind are constrained by the company's very high
financial leverage and the weak position of its fixed-line
operation.  The ratings are supported by the company's
established position as the third-largest mobile operator in the
attractive Italian market, a relatively benign regulatory
environment, and expectations of meaningful generation of free
cash flow from 2006 onward.

The rating on the notes has been notched down twice against the
corporate credit rating.  This reflects the notes' legal
subordination given that Wind's senior secured facilities are
secured against substantially all of the company's assets.

WIND TELECOMUNICAZIONI: Fitch Rates Senior Notes 'B-'
-----------------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has assigned an expected 'B-' rating to the
EUR1.25 billion equivalent Senior Notes issued by Wind
Acquisition Finance S.A. and guaranteed by Italy-based Wind
Acquisition Finance S.p.A.  The 'B+' Senior Unsecured of Wind
Telecomunicazioni S.p.A. (Wind) was affirmed with a Stable
Outlook.  The short-term rating is 'B'.

At the same time, Fitch has affirmed the expected 'BB' rating
assigned to the Wind's EUR6.85 billion first priority senior
secured facilities and the expected 'BB-' rating of the EUR700
million second lien notes.  The assignment of the final ratings
is contingent on receipt of final documents conforming to
information already received.

The two notches differential between the Senior Unsecured rating
of Wind and the Senior Notes rating reflects Fitch's view that
in the event of financial distress the expected recoveries for
investors in the notes are likely to be well below average.  In
particular, Fitch expects recoveries for investors in the Senior
Notes to be markedly lower than the expected recoveries of both
Senior Secured lenders and Second Lien noteholders.

Stefano Podesta, Director in Fitch's Leveraged Finance Group,
said: "The rating assigned to the Senior Notes implies an
expected recovery rate below 20% in a potential distressed
restructuring scenario, although higher recoveries are indeed
possible.  Higher recoveries for senior noteholders would depend
on the level of interest that new investors would have at such a
time for entering the Italian telecommunications market, buying
a distressed player and turning it around."

Wind's third quarter results were in line with plan and resulted
in an improved adjusted trailing twelve month EBITDA of EUR1,452
million (EUR1,272 million in FY04).  This EBITDA performance
reflects a reduction in the cost base, such that adjusted EBITDA
margins have improved to 31% (27% at FY04).  Free cash flow for
the year to date is slightly negative (-EUR49 million), reduced
by EUR348 million in extraordinary cash outflows relating to the
acquisition and refinancing activities of the group.  Fitch
expects an increased interest burden going forward will somewhat
reduce generation of free cash flow before exceptionals.  Senior
Leverage at Q3 05 (pro forma for a refinancing of securitization
lines completed in October) was 4.7x and Total Cash-pay Leverage
was 5.6x (including the full amount of High Yield Bridge lent at
Wind Acquisition Finance S.p.A.).

Wind also indicated their intention to prepay approximately
EUR290 million of senior facilities by yearend 2005 using excess
cash on balance sheet.  Assuming senior lenders approve the
application of the prepayment as an acceleration of the senior
debt amortization installments due in 2007, the prepayment will
effectively extend the payment holiday available to Wind until
2008, potentially improving the company's financial flexibility
for the first two years of this financing.

ROYAL SHELL: Buys back 2,600,000 'A' Shares
-------------------------------------------
On 11 November 2005, Royal Dutch Shell plc purchased for
cancellation 2,050,000 'A' Shares at a price of EUR25.52 per
share.  It further purchased for cancellation 550,000 'A' Shares
at a price of 1,715.71 pence per share.

Following the cancellation of these shares, the remaining number
of 'A' Shares of Royal Dutch Shell plc will be 3,975,019,000.

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

                            *   *   *

Shell's buyback scheme is 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 admitted overstating proved reserves by almost 6 billion
barrels between January 2004 and February this year.  This led
to the ouster of three top executives, including former Chairman
Philip Watts.  The company was fined EUR150 million in total
after investigations launched by U.S. and British regulators.
Shell has since 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.

BANCA COMERCIALA: Fitch Rates Eurobond 'BB+'
--------------------------------------------
Fitch Ratings has assigned Banca Comerciala Romana S.A.'s (BCR)
forthcoming bond issue an expected 'BB+' rating.  BCR is rated
Long-term 'BB+', Short-term 'B', Individual 'C/D' and Support
'3'.  The Long-term, Short-term and Support ratings are on
Rating Watch Positive.  The final rating of the bond will be
assigned when final documentation is received.

The notes are to rank pari passu among themselves and at least
pari passu with all other present and future unsecured
obligations of BCR save for such obligations as may be preferred
by law.

The rating watch on BCR will be resolved on the completion of
the planned sale of a majority stake in BCR to a foreign
investor.  Last month it was announced that Banco Comercial
Portugues (BCP, rated 'A+') and Erste Bank der oesterreichischen
Sparkassen (Erste, rated 'A') had been selected for the final
round of bidding for a majority stake in BCR.  The details of
the transaction will be determined during this final round, and
it is expected that the transaction will be finalized in 1Q06.

Tim Beck, Associate Director in Fitch's Financial Institutions
Group in London, said: "Both Banca Comerciala Portugues and
Erste are highly rated banks and the potential support from
either of them for Banca Comerciala Romana is likely to have a
positive effect on BCR's ratings."

BCR is the largest bank in Romania and accounts for
approximately 26% of the banking system's assets.

BARRINGTON HOUSE: DTI Winds up Charities Act Violator
-----------------------------------------------------
Barrington House Publishing Corp. Ltd. has been wound up
following an investigation by the Department of Trade and
Industry, said Creditman.

Using its self-employed telesales staff, the Liverpool-based
publishing firm had raised money to purportedly support
children's charities.  It lured businesses into buying
advertising space on wall planners.

However, DTI had found that Barrington House donated only a
portion of its proceeds to good causes.  Despite an annual
turnover of GBP3.5 million, the company had only given
GBP100,000 to charities.

The High Court in Manchester ruled that the company violated
Charities Act 1992 by failing to advise advertisers how much of
the money they spent would go to charity.  Barrington House also
paid excessive remuneration to its sales managers, limiting the
profits available to charities; and was insolvent, with debt of
over GBP700,000 to creditors.

Consumer Minister Gerry Sutcliffe said: "This isn't the first
time we have taken action against companies claiming to raise
money for good causes and getting fat from the profits.

"Companies like Barrington House are preying on the good nature
of honest businesspeople, and diverting much needed money from
genuine good causes.  They are thoroughly disreputable, and the
DTI won't hesitate to shut them down."

The company was created after Barrington House Publishing
Company Limited (Old Barrington) fell into liquidation on
February 2001, owing creditors large sums of money.  It traded
from premises at Moorgate Point, Knowsley Industrial Park,
Liverpool as Barrington House Publishing and, latterly, McKenzie
Campbell Publishing.  Its registered office and trading address
was Moorgate Point, Moorgate Road, Knowsley Industrial Park,
Knowsley, Liverpool, L33 7AZ.

DRAX GROUP: Studying BCHP Consortium Offer
------------------------------------------
Drax Group Limited has disclosed the current status of
approaches from third parties interested in acquiring the
Company, as an alternative to the refinancing and listing of the
Company proposed to take place on 15 December 2005.

The Board has previously indicated its commitment to delivering
shareholder value and the need to consider all alternatives on
the bases of their value, deliverability and timeliness.

The consortia that have approached Drax are:

(a) Constellation Energy and Perry Capital, now joined by
    Blackstone Group and Hellman & Friedman (the BCHP
    consortium);

(b) Apollo Management/Texas Pacific Group/TowerBrook (the ATT
    consortium); and

(c) International Power/Mitsui (the IPM consortium).

Each consortium has been given information relating to Drax as
well as access to site visits and management meetings.  Each
consortium was requested to confirm the terms of its approach by
early last week.

International Power announced the withdrawal of the IPM
consortium on 7 November.

Drax and its advisers have continued until now to have
discussions with the BCHP consortium and the ATT consortium and
have also consulted with Greenhill & Co. International LLP and
Milbank, Tweed, Hadley & McCloy LLP, advisers to the Shareholder
Committee.

Following those discussions, the Board has decided to
investigate further the BCHP consortium interest and has decided
not to proceed with the ATT consortium.

The proposal from the BCHP consortium represents an improvement
in price on the initial approach made by that consortium on 12
September, but is below the mid market price of 399% for the
Linked Securities (A2, A3 debt and equity) as at close of
trading on 9 November 2005.

The consideration offered by the BCHP consortium to shareholders
is 100% cash, with the opportunity for existing investors to
elect to take up to 40% of the offeror's equity.  The offer
remains conditional in certain key respects.

Drax is currently in the process of clarifying aspects of the
BCHP consortium proposal, including price (to be compared with
the Board's view on value) and conditionality, with a view to
trying to determine whether a recommendable offer can be
developed.  Additional information is being provided to the BCHP
consortium to facilitate this process.

The Board has received no additional offers.

In parallel with the process of considering the BCHP
consortium's offer, the Board continues preparations for the
refinancing and listing of Drax on 15 December 2005.  The
Prospectus and Scheme documentation were published on 28 October
2005.

The Board will continue its dialogue with investors and their
advisers as appropriate.

Deutsche Bank AG London Branch, which is regulated by the
Financial Services Authority for the conduct of designated
investment business in the United Kingdom, is acting for Drax in
connection with the matters described herein and no one else and
will not be responsible to anyone other than Drax for providing
the protections afforded to customers of Deutsche Bank, nor for
providing advice in relation to the matters described herein.

                        About the Company

Headquartered in Selby, North Yorkshire, United Kingdom, Drax
Group operates the largest coal-fire power plant in Europe.  Its
primary subsidiary, Drax Power, operates the Drax Power Station
in North Yorkshire England.

Drax Group underwent a financial restructuring in 2003 after its
largest customer, TXU Europe, filed for administrative
protection.  Its former project creditors took control of the
firm from owner U.S. energy generator AES.  In December, it
secured an agreement for a GBP348 million claim from TXU.  It
received a first distribution of some GBP214 million at the end
of March.  Succeeding payments are expected in 2005 and 2006.
The company is using its money to discharge B debt.

Drax Group Limited has appointed Deutsche Bank AG London as lead
adviser and sponsor for the proposed refinancing and listing.
It has retained Dresdner Kleinwort Wasserstein Limited as
financial adviser.

------------------------------------------------
Cable & Wireless plc has completed the acquisition of Energis

Cable & Wireless Group CEO Francesco Caio said: "I am delighted

John Pluthero was the chief executive officer of Energis from

operations positions within the Dixons Group.

In conjunction with the acquisition of Energis, creditor schemes
of arrangement of three Energis companies of which John Pluthero
is a director were implemented.

There are no further details required to be disclosed pursuant
to paragraph 9.6.13 of Listing Rules in relation to the
appointment of John Pluthero to the Board of Cable & Wireless.

In August, Cable & Wireless agreed to acquire the entire issued
share capital of Chelys Limited, which owns Energis.  Energis
will be acquired on a debt and cash free basis, save for
Energis' finance lease obligations of approximately GBP37
million, for an initial cash consideration of GBP594 million.

On completion, Cable & Wireless will inject approximately GBP35
million in cash, which is expected to be recovered within the
first year after completion, to meet Energis' short-term working
capital requirements.

In the third year following completion, Cable & Wireless has
agreed to pay a contingent consideration of between zero and
GBP80 million, payable in cash or shares at Cable & Wireless'
option, dependent on the level of Cable & Wireless' share price.

REGAL PETROLEUM: CNGG Claim on Ukrainian Licenses Upheld
--------------------------------------------------------
Further to Regal Petroleum plc's announcement dated 3 October
2005 regarding the legal action brought by
Chernigivnaftogasgeologia (CNGG) against the Ministry of
Environmental Protection challenging the process used in the
grant of Regal's production licenses in Ukraine, Regal has been
advised by its legal counsel in Ukraine that at the initial
hearing of such action, CNGG's claim was upheld.

Regal is awaiting written details of such decision but intends
to now join such legal proceedings and will vigorously defend
the legality of its licenses, which remain in force pending
further legal action.  The Company continues to be advised by
its legal counsel in Ukraine that the Company was awarded its
licenses in accordance with applicable rules, standards and
legislation of Ukraine.

                        About the Company

Regal Petroleum plc is a London-based independent oil and gas
producer listed on the Alternative Investment Market of the
London Stock Exchange.  It focuses on the exploration,
development and production of oil and gas assets in Ukraine,
Greece, Romania, Egypt and Liberia.

Frank Timis, who served as executive chairman until he stepped
down in June, established the company in 1996.  He resigned as
the company's annual losses quadrupled.  For the year ending
December 31, losses amounted to US$13.7 million, up from US$2.9
million a year earlier.

Since March, the company has lost 83% of its value, with shares
plunging significantly at the end of April when Regal raised
GBP45 million at 390 pence a share following its discovery of a
gas prospect in Romania.  It sank further when a well in Greece
was found to be not commercially viable for exploration.

WHITEHEAD MANN: Half-year Loss Down to GBP1.8 Million
-----------------------------------------------------
Whitehead Mann Group plc has reported interim results for the
six months ended 30 September 2005.

Financial Summary

(a) group turnover GBP20.3 million (2004: GBP26.9 million);

(b) exceptional charges GBP0.1 million (2004: GBP9.5 million);

(c) loss before tax GBP1.8 million (2004: loss GBP8.9 million);

(d) net assets as at 30 September 2005: GBP10.1 million (31
    March 2005: net liabilities of GBP0.6 million); and

(e) interim dividend Nil (2004: 1.5p).

Operational Highlights

(a) results in line with expectations;

(b) reduced overheads by over 25% year-on-year.  Restructuring
    substantially complete; and

(c) 6 partners, 8 consultants and 12 researchers recruited since
    January 2005.

             Report of Chairman Sir Colin Southgate

We continue to make progress in implementing our Strategic Plan.
The Board believes that the Group is now entering a more stable
period and is starting to see the benefits of concentrating on
its strengths.

Results

Turnover for the period was in line with expectations at GBP20.3
million (2004: GBP26.9 million).  This change was the result of
the closure of our operations in North America and our interim
management business, the reduced size of our coaching business,
fewer people in our U.K. recruitment business and the overall
impact of operating in a period of substantial change.  However,
compared to the second half of last year, turnover from
continuing operations, including the impact of the reduced size
of our coaching business, has been unchanged.

During the period, management has worked hard to implement the
restructuring and therefore reduce costs.  Compared to the same
period last year staff costs have been reduced by 11% to GBP12.5
million and operating charges have fallen by 21% to GBP8.2
million.

Overall loss before taxation (after goodwill charges of GBP0.6
million and interest of GBP0.4 million) was GBP1.8 million (2004
loss GBP8.9 million).  Basic loss per share was 3.24 pence
(2004: loss 34.98 pence).  Net exceptional charges of GBP0.1
million consist of the cost of settling a claim against the
Company following High Court proceedings, offset by lower than
expected restructuring costs.  Net debt has reduced from GBP10.5
million at 31 March 2005 to GBP4.9 million at 30 September 2005.

As stated in the prospectus for the placing and open offer, the
Board has decided not to pay dividends for the year ending 31
March 2006.

Business Review

Overall, the business has performed in line with our
expectations with a strong performance in the U.K.  However, our
Continental European and Asian operations, small in terms of
contribution, experienced some underperformance.

In our Executive Search operations, we have seen increased
demand from clients across all sectors in the U.K.  This is
especially so in Financial Services where we are benefiting from
increased recruitment by City institutions; Consumer and Retail,
a sector impacted by significant change; and the Public Sector,
which continues to seek expertise from the private sector.

Our Leadership Solutions business has been restructured into a
single unit, bringing coaching and development and assessment
into a single management structure.

Strategic Plan

In March the Company set out demanding strategic plan targets to
establish Whitehead Mann as the firm leading organizations
contact first to resolve their leadership challenges.

Since January, we have recruited 6 partners, 8 consultants and
12 researchers.  We have proved that we can attract high quality
people: their fresh ideas and enthusiasm have already been of
enormous benefit in driving the business forward.  Overall staff
numbers across our continuing operations are stable at 234.
Partner and consultant numbers are slightly up.  Underlying
income per fee earner has increased by 5%, compared to the
second half of last year and by over 14% in U.K. recruitment.

We have introduced a new reward system based on performance and
a new appraisal system.  We believe we are unique among search
firms in tying individual reward to collective results, an
essential step in putting clients first.

We closed our interim management business, managed the smooth
exit of 20 coaches, put our U.S. business into Chapter 11 and
reduced staff in the back office.  We have cut overheads by 25%
year-on-year.

Since August, all of our people in London have been together in
a single building for the first time in 8 years.  This is
already improving teamwork and communication.

Outlook

The business has been restructured and reorganized, allowing our
consultants to focus on our clients and generate future growth.
I continue to be grateful to all of our people for making this
progress possible.  Their energy, enthusiasm, skill and
professionalism have been essential to the Group's development
over the past few months.  We have, however, set ourselves tough
targets for the second half and will need to maintain our focus
and commitment if we are to meet them.

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.
