AFTER THE RESCUE : FEELING THE PULSE OF THE DOLLAR 


THE DOLLAR has recovered sharply since 
the Administration of Preside Carter an- 
nounced its major support package a fortnight 
ago. writes Michael Blanden. r - 

The sweeping US., moves have succeeded 
in the sense that the dollar^nas picked up. 

- From its worst levels just before the news, it 
has improved by around 91 per cent against 
tlie West German D-Mark, by some 11 per 
cent on the Swiss franc and by about 61- per 
cent compared with th'e Japanese yen. 

Nevertheless, as a demonstration ot‘ U.S. 
determination to put its position right, the 
measures have not yet convinced the foreign 
exchange market and holders, of dollars.

THE Bank of Japan is esti- 
mated to have purchased 
about 81.3-l.5bn in the Tokyo 
foreign exchange market since 
the U.S. treasury and Federal 
Reserve announced the dollar 
defence measures. About Slbn

_ , the day after the measures 

Tower the Swiss franc ‘were set, as a Hood of export 
may be expected to covering hit the Tokyo market 
taking advantage or the over- 
night reversal in the dollar's 
decline. 

The cf- uiral bank is estimati-d 
to hate bought an additional 
. SuOQm during two days of 

times. This is some- pressure against the U.S. enr- 
’umph for the inone- rency last week. 

The New York Fed — while 
concentrating the bulk of its 
attention on the West Gernxtn 
mark — nvy have bought up to 
$300m in New York against 
the Yen since the measures, 
were announced.

The U5. has yet to make 
any positive move toward Hoot-

lessen the chances of pressure 
building up again. There is 
some hint of dissappointment 
that the t'-S. lias not sounded

Sagami. Vice Minister of 
Finance Tor International 
Affairs, recently has said that 
Japan believes the present 
package of defence measures, 
will not stand a chance of 
working indefinitely unless 
there are clear, tangible signs 
or improvement in both the 
l : .S. trade balance and the 
economy. He is optimistic that 
such signs will be forthcoming.

Frankfurt: 
Firm stand 
by the 

Bundesbank 

By Guy Haw-tin 

FRANKFURT. Nov. 14. 

THE D0L7.AR has remained 
stable on the Frankfurt foreign 
exchange markets, following 
the considerable backing that 
the West German authorities 
have given the Carter adminis- 
tration's package. Tlie Bundes- 
bank, West Germany's centra^ 
hank, did not intervene at the 
fix either yesterday or today, 
hut dealers here believe that 
it has been intervening in the 

market. 

The Bundesbank would not say 
how much West Germany's 
bank has spent on supporting 
the dollar so far. However, 
bankers claim it is consider- 
ably less than in the first week 
of November, when West Ger- 
many's currency reserves rose 
DM 1.6m to DM 100. 2 bn 
iSoS.Hbnl. 

It appears ihat the market 
expects lltinys to remain quid 
Tor l he nexi couple of months 
or so. This is because the 
Bundesbank is committed lo 
supporting the dollar. 

A leading banker here, said: “The 
Bundesbank is on the line to 
keep ii stable, whether this 
resolve — and the available 
cash — will go beyond the short 
lenn remains to be seen. 

“There is nothing much lo 
radically alter the dollar situa- 
tion in the whole package, and 
1 don't think the fundamentals 
or the dollar’s problems have 
been changed. Another banker 
described the situation as “a 
war of nerves.” Dealers, lie 
said, clearly believe that the 
dollar would continue to go 
down without Bundesbank 
support, and it was only its 
intervention which lias pre- 
vented a decline. He described 
the situation as “stalemate." 

One view is that there were so 
many dollars in circulation 
that it seemed there would be 
little alternative but for a 
further decline. With 8100m 
coming omo the market 
monthly, as a restih of interest 
«»n Euroloans, supply was far f 
outstripping demand. 

Some concern was expressed 
about the American plans lo 
raise short-term loans in the- 
market. ;

studying the feasibility of a Point-of-sale (POS) data captufesystem for their 
department stores. Their ambitious aim was to capture daj/rstdek 
movement information, to identify “dead" lines andreduceSock cover 
Recently, they signed an order for 500ICL 9500 terminals a|i 
associatedconcentrators. | 

Tfcieir careful study of the project haaidentified the characteristics o: 
the ideal system solution. 

1. Protection from error Allders wanted protection fromfejman error 
The ICL 9500 terminal alone gives it to them; a clear “lead-Mough" 
system guides the operator through the correct keying sequence. 

It also has a 16-digit display, with an option of 8 digits. 

2. Reliability Allders specified that at all times not less thaiJSQ- o 
of terminals shouldbe working. The ICL 9500 terminal gav j them the 
guarantee they needed. It has very few components and a ugh degree 
of resilience: it will go ontakingmoney in the event of rnino faults 
developing. What’s more, there is a built-in self diagnostic s 'stem, 
so that the engineerneednever spendmore thanhalf an hejur on any 
repair 

3. Flexibility Allders required a system that was entirely flexible. 

Only the ICL 9500 could provide what they are looking fori lach terminal 
is programmable and programs can be easilymodiLed. 

Moreover, the ICL systemis entirely compatible with Aiders' existing 
main-frame computer.

age to tjfr investigations into 


Sri Lanka 


Mrs. Bandaranaike's record in 
office. Though the appeal court 
last week gave a unanimous order 
is favour of Mrs. Bandaranaike 
and stayed the inquiry a new law- 
will be passed any time now to 
hllow the commission to recom- 
mence its work. 

. Through effectively limiting 
university agitation -and public 
sector strikes the Government 
.has made a preemptive move 
igainsl two other potential 
sources of trouble. 

Assessing the Government's 
economic performance the 
Finance Minister lists the follow- 
ing achievements. First, the 
exchange parities have proved 
realistic and the rupee has* held 
its ground. Second, inflationary 
pressures have been contained. 
The official figure is 12 per cent. 


However Mr. De Mel did npt con- 
tradict the suggestion that this 
.could be over optimistic. 
Informed businessmen regard 20 
per cent as closer to the truth 
while Dr. Perera, former Finance 
Minister says it is over 30 per 
ceril. ‘ 

. The. country's credit rafng is 
so high says Dc Mel that the 
Government has received. many 
offers of large loans from 
foreign commercial banks. 
Etenial -assets are largea than 
at any time' in the past 20*H , cars 
and good enough to cover five 
months of imports. Though - tea 
production fell during first nine 
months, prices are still Lqulte 
good and rubber has retailed its 
bounce. Three record harvests 
have prompted the Agriculture 
Minister to predict \ solf- 
i fiy 1»S0. s' 


sufficiency in rice by 1»S0. v - 
Despite import liberalisation, a 
carefully monitored exercise, 
there has been no rup on 
exchange. Ninety per cent of 
imports, says the Centra] Sank, 
is capital and intermediate goods. 
Luxuries account for only l -per 
cent. However the high visibility 
of new* life. styles is already & n 
irritant. . In an exchange starved 
decade the imported item was the 
status symbol of a self $tyled 
“ nescafe society." Now <pews- 
paper advertisements announce 
the .'arrival of Italian tears,. 
Japanese TVs- British air; con- 
ditioners. French wines, Austra- 
lian lamb and German jbeer. 
Even stall keepers in Colombo's 
hustling bazaar have abandoned 
their old one-word sales slogan 
“imported."' With the influx of 
foreigners, land values andfents 


in Colombo soar to the rising 
gorge bf middle class residents 
beating a relentless retreat to 
stiburbia. A familiar advertise- 
ment reads ** foreign couple 
needs bouse in Colombo five, six 
or seven. Rent immaterial." 

Party spokesman admit that no 
significant impression has been 
made yet on tbe staggering 
problem of uu employment Well 
over a million youtbs. about 20 
per cent, of .the workforce, have 
to be found jobs if the island is 
to free from its most explosive 
cause of social tension. 

In tbe past year 140,000 jobs 
have been found in the public 
sector while the private sector 
has doubled its annual intake. 
Tbe Finance Minister will an- 
nounce a five year investment 
programme of Rs 47bn which 
includes the three major projects 
including the Mabaveli River 
scheme and a housing project for 
Greater Colombo. Investment 
will also be made in the planta- 
tions industry, tourism, ports 
fisheries and telecommunications 

Summing up bis “ unenviable 
task" Mister De Mel said that 
welfare programmes cannot be 
abandoned for fear of depressing 
living standards blit local' 
resources -had to be mobilised 
for development to match the 
massive foreign aid already 
pledged. He has to walk a tight 
rope between inflation and em- 
ployment he says. He is im- 
potent with textbook solution and 
ideologies.

If the corset led to a fall in 
bank deposit rates compared 
with other rates, it made it 
easier for other institutions such 
as the building societies to 
attract deposits, potentially 
diverting funds to non-bank 
outlets. 

Secondly, the corset was more 
effective in holding back growth 

of the- money supply, but it also, 
introduced distortions into the 
financial system. 

“The corset may enable 
authorities to get their pub- 
lished money supply figures 
right and this may calm markets 
for a while, but it is also much 
harder ro say jusr what the 
money supply figures are likely 
to mean in terms of economic 
consequences.” 

Prof. Rose said he could not 

“ sympathise with what is a 
return, in substance if not in 
form, to an old-fashioned clamp 
on bank lending to tbe private 
sector." 

In tinte. it might be necessary 
tn extend controls to other 
institutions such as building 
societies. 

In the meantime, however, 
what are required are govern- 
ment policies — especially with 
regard to the size of the public 
sector horrowing requirement— 
that make possible the goal of a. 
non-discritninatory open-market 
policy, without the need for 
direct controls having to be 
applied to a range of institutions 
as the pattern of market shares 
changes."

Delivery buoy. 


Man long ago discovered that oil in the 
ground is worthless unless (a) he finds it, 

(b) he produces it and (c) he gets it to a 
refinery, where it can be made into petrol 
and other useful products, in the stormy 
North Sea that last step can be one of the 
most challenging. 

There are two ways of delivering North 
Sea oilio a refinery — by tanker loaded at 
the production platform, or by a pipeline 
along the seabed to shore. Which you 
choose, depends on how much oil there is 
in the field, how far you are from land, and 
the depth of water. Our Beryl field is too far 
out to sea and not big^enough to justify a 
pipeline. So we opted for tankers. 

They take delivery of crude at the field 
through a 485-foot high Single-Point 
Mooring fSPM) buoy secured to the sea 
bottom. Oil is pumped from the platform 
storage tanks through a mile-long flowiine, 
up into the SPM, and thence into the 
tankers: The lower part of the SPM is 
pivoted and the whole structure can tilt in 
any direction during loading. 

We and our partners in Beryl have two 
80,000 ton vessels carrying crude from 
Beryl to U.K. refineries. Both ships are over 
800 feet .long and have been specially 
adapted to load oil in severe North Sea 
weather. And they’re a technologist's 
drearti. * 

During trips the captain gets not 
only frequent weather forecasts by telex 
but up-to-the-minute electronic . 
reproductions of weather charts from shore- 
based weather stations. He*s also in radio 
contact at all times with the producing 
platform Aid with Mobil’s shore base at 
Aberdeen; .. 

Permanent sea-water ballast is 
carried in special tanks quite separate from 
those used to carry oil. Thus no oil tanks 
are flushed, out at sea, and the environment 
is protected. 


' During loading, a reversible pitch 
propeller and a powerful side*thrusting 
system position the vessel. An advanced 
telemetry system on the bridge commands 
the pumps on the distant platform, 
creating the oil flow to the tanker. 

When we designed our delivery system 
we expected it to be efficient, but it’s 
performed far better than we could have 
hoped. Our tankers have taken on oil at the 
SPM over 100 times since we began 
production at Beryl. Only on three 
occasions have there been delays in. 
loading. 

But we did have a hair-raising problem 
as we were testing the buoy before oil 
production began. One stormy day in 
December 1975, the newly-installed SPM 
broke from its mooring to float across the 
North Sea towards the Norwegian coast. 

Tugs went in pursuit. After three days 
and nights the monster was finally towed to 
port for Inspection. Remedy? Slightly * 
modify the design and re-install. Result? 

A buoy now proved well built, but a timely 
reminder that North Sea development is 
risky and frequently involves working at the 
frontiers of technology. 

Since then it’s been plain sailing for 
our tankers, supplied by the re-installed 
delivery buoy. We plan to keep it that way.

If you run a company you will know

business necessities can seem

Provided there’s a sound business

Your Midland manager also 
has at his disposal a highly skilled 
team of specialists who can. 
between them, offer answers to 
almost anvbusiness need. Start

MINISTERS HAVE warned-the 
Road Haulage Association's 
Scottish region, which is lead- 
ing the industry’s pay negotia- 
tions (his year, that a settle- 
ment breaching the 5 per cent 
guideline will lead to sanction*.. 

These will take at least the 
form of Price Coni mission 
controls, lo restrict haulage ratr 
increases. 

The warning was cleliiercd 
to Scottish association officials 
by Mr. William Rodgers. 
Transport Secretary, and Lord 
Kirkhill. Scottish Minister of 
State. A less direct warning 
of the need to keep settlements 
within the guideline has been 
issued to the association's 
national office. 

Meetings of Scotland's a .000 
lorry drivers have over- 
whelmingly rejected fhc 
association's offer of 5 per cent, 
with a scheme of “self financ- 
ing “ attendance payments. 

Union officials representing 
the drivers, who lra\ e sub- 
mit led a Maim nationally for 
rises o f 20-30 per ce n I . said 
yesterday that 5 per ce.nl was 
not acceptable. 

.Hr. Toni Bniflin. the associa- 
tion's Scottish area secretary, 
said that in the e\cnl of a 
strike which forced an offer 
above 5 per eent and con- 
sequent action by the Price 
Commission, employers would 
have no alternative but to 
reduce fleets to keep down 
costs.

MR. DOUGLAS HURD 


Allowing at least a year for 
ratification, this would probably 
mean Greece’s formal entry by 
January 1. 19S1. 

Negotiations with Portugal 
were likely to take two years, and 
this pointed to entry in 1982. 

He hoped that a decision to 
open negotiations with Spain 
would be taken at next month's 
meetins of the EEC Council of 
Minis Lcrs. 

For the Opposition. Mr. 
Douglas Hurd said the Tories 
warmly* supported the member-

“We cannoi say that we are

PM rejects blame for 
rise in mortgage rates 


BY JOHN HUNT 

THE RISE in Minimum Lending 
Rate to 12-1 per cent and of 
mortgage rales to 115 per cent 
had not been caused by ibe size 
or the Government's borrowing 
rcquiremeni. ihe Prime Minister 
told the Commons. 

Hi.s denial came dtiriny a duel 
with Mrs. Margaret Thatcher. 
Conservative Parly leader, and 
backbench Conservative -MPs. 

^ Mrs. Thaicher asked Mr. 
Callaghan to explain why ihe 
typical home buyer was now hav- 
ing iy pay yn extra £16 a month 
as a result tn ihe rise of 
mortgage rate. 

It was ihe second lime under 
the present Government (hat the 
rale had risen 10 historically high 
figures, she said. The first lime 
was in 1976 when il ruse lo a 
record 12i per cent. 

Under Mr. Callaghan's leader- 
ship ihe Government had a worse 
record on mortgages than any of 
ils predecessors, shp maintained. 

In reply, ihe Prime Minister 
pointed out that after tax dediic- 
lions the new mortgage increase 
would he Jess than £16 a month. 

“ The plain truth is that the 
British people would prefer 10 
see inflation conquered, what- 
ever short term steps 
necessary." 



Mr. MaeKay could take this view 
at a lime when building societies 
were paying out more in loans 
than ever before. Despite the 
record loans figure, still more 
people were “ in the field " fur 
huvtnq homes. 

Elinor Goodman adds: Further 
evidence of the anger among 

Labour kefl-winycrs caused by 

last v'cek's inc'e=>e in interest 
rales came yesterday when two 
separate early day motions were 
pul down condemning the rise.

efficiency, cut running costs and keep 
your vehicles out of the service bay

. Although British companies have often been accused of a lack of drive 
;in marketing expertise, UK advertising expenditure this year is heading for 
an all-time record of £1.8bn. Meanwhile, the media in general — and 

'■ r

The conference called for 
business to improve its non- 
price/ competitiveness. its 
marketing practices and its 
customer/supplier relationships 
— just as the Advertising Asso- 
ciation conference last spring 
had addressed itself to the 
theme that advertising - equalled 
profit equalled prosperity'. 

The A A conference was fol- 
lowed by a statement on the 


advertising has recently hoen 
described as enjoying' unpre- 
cedented prestige and influence: 
in Britain it is treated with dis- 
interest and sometimes with 
distaste. 

••.Japanese products flooding 
into the UK are not always bet- 
ter made: nur are they any 
longer always cheaper. But they 
have nearly always been de- 
signed under the direct influ- 
ence of potential users' needs 
and wishes, including the needs

How can that be done'. 1 Ac-

tive and nob-restrictive stance 
towards tine T whole process of 
marketing, 3 *bd to advertising in

What else could be done ? 
According to the Advertis- 
ing Association, Government 
agencies.' planning boards , and 
working parties should be 
strengthened with an infusion 
of marketing expertise, in addi- 
tion to that of finance, produc- 
tion and labour. Third, the UK 
has got to monitor more closely 
the goings-on in Brussels, so

Britain's ability to compete in 
world markets. 

Fourth, says the AA. it is 
necessary to create a revitalised 
fiscal framework in which 
marketing risk can be en- 
couraged by the prospect of 
effective rewards. Finally, the 
Government itself should give 
a lead in building positive atti- 
tudes which have hitherto (no 
often decried selling techniques 
like advertising as being waste- 
ful or somehow /improper. 

In this connection. Winston 
Fletcher, imanaging director of 


the advertising agency Fletcher. 
Shelton. Delaney, offers a very 
useful suggestion. Referring 
the publicity campaign with 
which the Advertising Standards 
Authority invited the public to 
complain about advertising it 
didn't like, Mr. Fletcher says: 

It seems extraordinary that 
the only time the advertising 
industry has united to fimd a 
major communications cam- 
paign the objective of that cam- 
paign was to persuade the public 
to complain about advertising. 

“ Lei's slop dribbling money 
away encouraging the average 
British adult to moan tu the 
ASA once every 24.000 years— 
tbar's what a strike rate of 1.845 
complaints per year equates to. 
Let us instead spend the money 
communicating the real benefits 
of advertising to consumers and 
thence to commerce and indus- 
try". 

Despite the problems -with 
which UK marketing is buffeted, 
there are clear-cut signs that the 
marketing divisions of manufac- 
turing companies throughout 
Britain are adopting a more 
expansive approach than they 
have been able to in recent 
years. J 

According to Peter Kraushar, 
an expert in new product 
development: "Surveys among 
consumer goods companies show 
clearl.- that development activity 
is increasing. More launches are 
being planned, than in the past 
few years. There is more 
interest in acquisitions, and 
joint venture-, of all kinds are 
being pursued. . 

** Companies have ar lakt be- 
come much more aware'bf the 


need for really senior executive* 
in the development role. There 
is no substitute for a motivat- 
ing force at the top. Case his- 
tories of successful companies 
repeatedly show that the main 
difference between them and the 
less successful is not that they 
have better ideas or use better 
techniques but that top manage- 
ment — often the chief executive 
himself — is sufficiently involved 
to preclude any problem about 
lack of a decision to go ahead 
on tire right projects or lack of 
commitment throughout the 

company. 

Painstaking 

"The other main difference 
between successful* and unsuo 
cessful companies seems to be 
in the former's much more 
painstaking approach to imple- 
mentation of new product ideas. 
Many companies continue to 
make a complete hash of the 
best of ideas, whereas - a poor 
idea in the hands of a very effi- 
cient company can be turned, to 
real success. The gap between 
the two seems to be widening." 

At the same time, the current 
level of UK advertising expendi- 
ture — advertising often accounts 
for around 50 per cent of a 
marketing bhdgei. sometimes a, 
good deal/more — is edging its 
way towards an all-time high. 
Total expenditure this year is 
likely to reach £l.Sbn in current 
terms' This is well above the 
longterm trend line, and a 
similar improvement in 1979 
\jrould unquestionably push the 
ad. spend to an all-time record. 
AH media acre prospering, and 
so are most agencies.

though from .the. established 
regional newspapers' point of 
view, there -are a number of 
douffs on the. horizon. One is 
ihe -.possibility that national 
newspapers may. start regional 
editions capable of exploiting 
the. potential of local advertis- 
ing. 

In ;the longer term, regional 
newspapers are potentially 
vulnerable to competition from 
electronic systems, notably 
Prestel, the Post Office’s system 
for linking domestic television 
sets .jo a central computer. This 
system, which started market 
trials this year, could become a 
very powerful advertising 
medium, for both local classi- 
fied and national marketing. 

The basis of the system is that 
a modified television set can be 
connected by ordinary telephone 
io a network of computers 
throughout the country. These 
computers wiD store a variety 
of information like news 
bulletins,, timetables and finan- 
cial information which a sub- 
scriber could call up on to his 


screen as he wishes: The com- 
puters can, and will, also jftoie 
advertising material. , , 

*. It is therefore possible that 
consumers will be able to cboofie 
amew bouse, job or second-bar^ 
car in very much the same way 
as;airline booking clerks select 
flights from a television screerr 
linked to a central computer. < 

One potential advantage of- 
electronic systems over theirr 
newsprint rivals is that they cam 
be “ inter-active." That meats 
ib at a consumer could make s 
purchase from his own living 
room by punching a credit care 
□umber into a keypad tinker 
io the TV set and hence to .t™ 
central computer. Advertise^ 
would thus be able to obtais 
immediate feedback as wieJJ ■& 
making instant sales. i 

The effect that these system 
will have on regional Preafc 
advertising is still very 
certain, not least because 
nobody can be sure how fast 
Prestel will penetrate into thf 
homes of enough consumers t^. 
make it attractive to advertisers^ 

Its impact may not be felt aS 
quickly as some of the techno-, 
logical pundits have suggested, 
but it is certainly a develop-/ 
ment on which all regional, 
papers are keeping a wary eye. 

The regional press is also 
facing increasing competition 
for advertising revenues frem 
freesheets. These grew out ^ 
the advertising boom of 1973 : 
when there was plenty foj 
everybody. t 

Since then their fortuned 
have been mixed and several 
have collapsed. The Advertis^ 
ing Association. howeverj' 
estimated in 1975 that the total 
revenue of weekly freesheets 
was £18m. or 20 per cent of 

that of weekly newspapers. The 
Royal Commission on the Press 
estimated that the combined 
circulation of freesheets was 
half of weekly newspapers^ In 
general, however, freesheets are 
not seen as a major threat to 
regional newspapers. and 
Thomson Regional ; Newspapers 
told the Commission that they 
generally helped to stimulate 
the use of classified advertising. 

For the next few years at 
least the regional Press appears 
set to enjoy greater prosperity. 
It has the advantage over its 
national rivals of close indeuti- 
fication . with its regional 
marker, while for the present, 
at least, it appears to have 
avoided the severe production 
problems that have beset Fleet 
Street. .

American executives hare nearly everything 
— except regular, reliable information on 
international business, edited specially for 
them. Now they can have that too, in the. 
n ew Fi nancial Times WORLD BUSINESS 
WEEKLY, published by the FT in New 
York every week. 

When we printed a pilot issue of WORLD 
BUSINESS WEEKLY earlier this year.ir 
carried 122-reports of major international 
developments that we felt would he of 
working value to American executives. ,. 
Then we compared our pilot issue with the. 
coverage for that same-week in the Wall. 
Street Journal, the New York Times, 
Business Week, Forbes, Fortune and the 
Journal of Commerce: £ 

We found that all of these distinguished, 
journals — combined — had covered Ass’ 
than half of the wide-ranging stories id that 
issue of WORLD BUSINESS WEEKLY. 

As a readcr.of the FT this will hardly 
surprise you, especially if youhave ever 
crossed the Atlantic and found yourself 
surrounded by U.S. business papers,- 
wondering what was going on in the Test of 
the world. 

Many American business executives fed 
like that, as we discovered in three separate 
and intensive, exercises in market research . . 
over the p&t fifteen months. 

The FT*s riewATOR'LD BUSINESS '■ 
WEEKLY will now fill the gap. It will of 


course draw on the extensive resources of 
the FT itself — plus our Business 
Information. Service, our newsletters, and 
our other business publications. 

This is what American readers will get:

COMMERCIAL RADIO comes 
Jof age”: the headline- would 
[stand runner-up chances in any 
competition to determine the 
| most-used headline of 1978. The 
Independent local radios’ man-

[over the past five years to 
I brazen out hard times, now are 
I making the most of success. 

All of the 19 HRs are now 
showing profits (some of them 
very modest, to be sure ) r or are 
i moving into profit this year. 

Some, led by Radio Clyde, the 
only one to get off to a running 
start, are moving into the 
"super profit” area, defined in 
their case by receiving the 
dubious privilege of paying a 
secondary rental ** to the LB A. 

This is charged when, after 
absorbing start-up costs and any 
operating shortfall, the stations' 
profits before interest charges 
and corporation taxes exceed 5 
per cent of net advertising - 
receipts. Four stations- — Clyde, - 
Capital. Piccadilly (Manchester) 
and BRMB (Birmingham)—

spend md re on marketing and 
de^iite the recent decline in 
industrial profitability there is 
net easing in the approaches 
from: companies who more and 
more want research data before 
they make investment decisions. 
It is the traditional areas such 
as ' .product .development and 
advertising research which are 
perhaps Busiest of all, although 
the new clients which supported 
market research during the 
1974-75. advertising slump — 
Government, local authority and 
overseas research— are still buy- 
ing information. The big change 


in the last decade has. been the 
fall in commissions from adver- 
tising agencies — down from 
being 3(kper cent of all research 
users td. just 15 per ceut in 
1976. -They are spending more

survey of financial expenditure, 
which cost 'over £500,000 to 


develop and involves a panel of 
11.500 people, is now national, 
and other developments: like 
delivering overnight TV ratings 
for Thames TV and extending 
the TCA panel to Ulster, should 
come on stream next year. 

AGB like all the research com- 
panies, indeed like all market- 
ing services operations, finds 
that a shortage of trained staff 
is restricting growth. Research, f 
in common with advertising and 
PR, short-sightedly failed to re- 
cruit and train during the hard 
years and is paying the price 
now. There is a great deal of 
poaching going on and in 1979 
which, at least until its end 
looks like being as buoyant as 
1978, the shortage of executives 
could restrain growth even 
more.

When the downturn comes. & 
unbelievably it must, research 
(as usual) should be In a bet- 
ter position than advertising to 
survive. For one thing there has 
been a marked increase in inter- 
national business passing 
through London which is more 
and more the centre for trans- 
national research, especially by 
American companies. Not 'only 
does London have very good 
personnel— it is a third the price 
of research carried out in 
France or Germany. For com- 
panies like Gallup overseas 
work has doubled to a quarter 
of its turnover in the past year 
alone. Financial research, ‘and 
not only through Index is also 
growing, and . the Government 
seems committed. Along with 
local government it accounts 
for about 10 per cent of research 
expenditure and often comes up 
with some very big surveys— an 
audit of the national housing 
stock, commissioned by the De- 
partment of the Environment, 
is worth £lm, and is split be* 
tween three research companies 
RSGB, NOP. and SCPR. . *

You may be forgiven if, 
at times, TV buying scares you 
half to death. 

Booking airtime can really 
be like putting your head in the 
lion’s mouth. 

And then hoping the jaws 
don't come together with a 
pre-emptive crunch. 

Of course you would have this 
problem tamed if you continually 
guaraflteed your commercial the 
airtime it obviously needs. 

Then again, your budget'would 
be munched up that much faster. 

What are the alternatives? 

Well, you can bounce round 
the various Contractors until you’ve 
spent your budget in areas you’re 


not happy about 

Or you can take a deep breath, 
and get out your collection of 
newspaper ratecards. 

Here the rates are guaranteed. 
You spend precisely what you 
want and reach precisely who you 
want What’s more, the cost per 
thousand is aroundhalf the cost of TV 
And with most companies 
achieving only limited visibility 
on television we feel that now is the 
time to fully realise the greater 
opportunities we offer. 

We don’t want your 
thirty second commercial to lose out 
to a big spender when your full-page 
ad could reach the millions 
vou’dmiss.

enjoying a 


needs access to key information provided 
by newspapers,- journals and 'Government 
documents. The storage and filing of this 
literature in paper copy presents many 
problems however. The space available 
may be insufficient to cope with as many 
titles or their back numbers as one would 
wish, and cuttings can often become 
damaged or go astray. The solution to 

these problems is to take a microfilm sub-. 

scription to the publications you refer to

the pxhibitinn. But lead times 
can be years and years. Alan 
Snuxeil. head of exhibitions at 
the Electricity Council, cites the 
example of the Leeds transport

decision teat can he traced back

Council’s permanent stand in 
the Building Centre. 

The Electricity Council is a 
maior user of exhibitions — some 
40-50 a year— and its marketinc 
department arranges the activi- 
ties on behalf of the electricity 
supply industry. iThe various 
boards also do their own thin? 
locally.) The scope of its 
activities range from, say, the 
Autumn Potato Demonstration 
at Lodge Farm, Dlnningtnn, 
Sheffield, throujte highly tech- 
nical events to the Ideal Home 
Exhibition.

Any judgment about the 
quality of French TV today 
depends very much on what 
standards are employed and 
account must clearly be taken 
of differences in national tastes. 
To a foreign observer, the 
French are often guilty of mis- 
taking gimmickry for genuine 
artistic . originality.. Moreover, 
tiie interminable discussion pro- 
grammes on political, scientific 
and literary subjects, which are 
served .up daily on at least two 
channels, however interest ins 
to a limited audience, would 
strike horror into the heart of 
a professional TV producer in 
Britain, the U.S. or West 
Germany. "• 

The fall in French TV 
audiences by more than 12 per 
cent over the past year or su 
"ays much about the failure «.f 
French producers to master the 
medium and also partly explains 
the very high proportion of 
foreign material used by the 
three channels — nearly 70 per 
.cent compared with 20 per vent 
in Britain. 

American and British serials 
such as “ Kojak," ** Starsky and 
Hutch” “The Avengers," and 


v- 1, Claudius.” are almost as 
popular in France as they were 
in their countries of origin. It 
is all very well fur French poli- 
tician." to criticise the low 
quality' of foreign import?, 
which, like hamburgers and 
jeans, are said to undermine Ibe 
French cultural tradition, hut 
ibese are what a large propor- 
tion- of viewers seem to like. 

What i- mure, the foreign 
imports are generally cheaper 
than home-made product?, not 
the least consideration Tor j 
huru.SM.-d management wtaivh is 

desperately trying 10 make* ends 
meet. For whal has really set 
tiie eat among the pigeons is the 
financial disaster which has 
overtaken The restructured 
monster collectively and the 
SFP in particular. 

A report presented to the 
National Assembly last month 
by M. Joel Le Tac, the Gaullist 
rapporteur of a special commii- 
teeon radio and TV finauces. 
dramatically underlined the ex- 
tent io which the 1974 reform 
ha.: failed commercially and 
financially. Whereas Uie • id 

and much-maligned ORTF 
managed to make an operating 
profit of nearly FFr 40m (about 
£4.3m) in tin.- last year of its 
existence, the joint deficit of ibe 
seven new companies last year 
came to FFr flora. 

The three channels, it is true, 
more or less broke even, and 
Radio France made a small pro- 
fit, but the SFP production com- 
pany alone had a cumulative 
deficit of FFr 122.7m in the 
three years from 1975 to 1977. 
not counting some FFr 200m oC 
state subsidies which were 
poured iniu it. 

Far (mm making the cuts in 
costs which could normally be 
expected from organisations in 
a competitive climate which 
were supposed to stand on their 
own feet, the trend has been in 
the opposite direction. Admini- 
strative costs have risen by 
more than 80 per cent in die 


last four years, cum p& red -.vith

Such a mon was bound to 
think bis. 8ut his projects were 
clearly over-ambitious given the 
sulfocating framework within 
which he had tn work. As Jl. La*

cern should be profilahility. 
finding itself under the obliga- 
tion to continue employing the 
entire staff. a s well as maintain- 
ing all the old buildings and 
equipment. which ‘it. has 
inherited The remark by the 
Gaullist HP was clearly aimed 
straight at President Cisco rd. 
who had saddled M. Edeline 
with an almost impossible task. 

The task, was made all the 
more difficult by the fact that 
SFP’s only assured income — 

from programmes sold to the 8 
TV channels — was bound tu fall 
rapidly, giveu tbe channels' 
preference for employing 
nrivau- companies to make their 
films. 1,‘nder the rules laid down 
when rhe new organisation came 
into eflec-L the channels were 
obliged in buy some of their pro- 
grammes from SFP. but on a 
declining scale. In 1976 their 
purchase.- had tn represent *5 
per L-rnt of tbe production 
companyS turnover, falling to 
60 per cent in 1977. 45 per cent 
in 197S. 30 per cent in 1979 and 
0 per cent in I960. In other 
0 per cent in 1980. 

With this in mind. M. Edeline 
embarked on a number of wildly 
expensive projects which greatly 
over-estimated the potential 
market for the SFP’s products, 
particularly for full-length films. 
Confusing the TV studios at 
Buitc--Chaumont with the 
Chateau of Versailles, in the 
words of M. Lo Tac. M. Edeline 
planned to create a grandiose 
European "Cinet-ilta" at Bry-sur- 
Marne. near Paris, with a loan 
of FFr 150ra graciously pro- 
vided by Ibe State-controlled 
Cajssc des Depots.

NOTES 


1. The comparative figures lor the six months to 30th September 1977 have been restated to give efiect Io the 
decision lo discontinue the transfer from capital reserve in respecl of the net outgoings attributable to 
development properties. This decision, described in the Report tor the year to 31 st March 1978 was effected 
after Ihe interim results had been announced. 

2. Nel rents include £4,980.000 (1977: £3.954,000) inleresl receivable on short term funds.

3. The taxation charge for six month periods is computed at 52% whereas the charge for the year is at a lower 
rate reflecting relief arising from capital allowances. 


4. The basic earnirrgs for the period reflect the issue of approximately 13.2m Ordinary Shares of 50p on the 
conversion of Convertible Unsecured Loan Stocks in September 1978. 


Minimum £0.45m forecast 
by Andrew Findlay 


5. A forward contract has been effected lor the purchase of U.S. dollars to repay the $80 million loan on 
26fh February 1979. The consequential gain of £1.015,000 over the liability as at 31st March 1978 is dealt 
with ihrojgh capital reserve; for the six months to 30th September 1977 an unrealised gain of £735,000 
was similarly dealt with.

flows, central bamk strategies. Theseare just a few of the 
interrelated elements— in dozens of countries— that 

or an investor. K ; 

, At The Morgan Bank we re organised to help our 
clients deal with those elements. We provide a global 
perspective on financial markets. All. our activity in 
money and: capital markets anywhere in the world— 
from foreign exchange trading to municipal bond 
underwriting— is centralised in our Treasurers Division. 

Communication is constant, from desk to desk, from 
office to office, among all the financial centres where 
our specialists are located. 

If central bank buying of dollars shows up in Euro- 
pean exchange markets, the likely effect on U.S. Treas- 
ury bill rates is quickly assessed. New trade figures 
translate into probable market repercussions. A subtle 
shift discerned in a country's economic policy prompts 
careful analysis that- may sharply alter our strategic ||U, 
recommendations on currency exposure management. 


This unified approach to financial markets pays ofl 
for us— in managing our own portfolio of government 
and municipal securities, in raising the funds we use for 
loans and investments. 

It pays off for our clients too, in the quality- of advice 
vye provide, in our ability to meet their foreign ex- 
change needs, in assistance with a full range of money- 
market investments, in our total financial service. 

For more information on how our global view of 
finance can work for you, talk with your Morgan banker

(Incorporated in Rhodesia)

REVIEW BYVHE CHAIRMAN SIR KEITH ACUTT, K.B.K 


Seventy-fire years a?o the first, tail wav train Inadert with 
coat left Waokie CoIJierj'. Before tbaL some coal found its 
way by oxwagon to the north and to the south but it was 
the railway pushing northwards from Bulawayo which 
made the coai for the railways and the mines readily avail- 
able. The impact of this was far reaching and industries 
and electrical power generation stations soon joined the 
consumers. 


We have worked very closely with the railways and have 
valued their co-operation over many years. The needs of 
the customer, the colliery and the railways are reviewed 
constantly as the rapid and regular movement of coal and 
coke is of great importance to us all. Failure to be able 
to do so adversely affects our .production and plant opera- 
tions. which adds to the cost. 


The recent introduction of the unit train system between 
the colliery and the steel works has been very successful. 
The coking coal for these trains is loaded at a separate 
installation fed by belts from the coal preparation planL 
This eases loading congestion at the plant and the provision 
of these special trains has released trucks for handling 
other traffic. 


1 The anticipated annual demand dictates the source and 
rate of production but sometimes we have difficulty in 
obtaining accurate estimates. of customers’ requirements. 
Thus, we have often had to gear our rale of production to 
make provision for the maximum possible offtake. This, 
of course, sets the fixed costs at a higher figure than they 
need be had we known with any degree of accuracy the 
tonnage we would be called upon to supply. This difficulty 
has been eased to some extent as a result of the reduction 
in demand and by the development of the opencast pits 
where a more flexible ouiput'is possible. It also has been 
helped by the co-operation of oiir main large consumers who 
have realistically assessed demand and have new established 
stockpiles which cao take the strain of any temporary 
fluctuation in supplies. 

This year it has been possible to equate production very 
closely with deliveries and.. In addition, the closure of 
No. 4 colliery and the concentration of opencast production 
on one pit, where the stripping of overburden has been 
reduced to the bare minimum required to expos? sufficient 
coal to meet the monthly caji, has made it possible for the 
fixed cost of production to be contained. It must be 
appreciated that should there be any large increase in coal 
demand, which would call for replanning, there would be 
an increase in fixed costs in advance of the material being 
iavsilable. In certain circumstances we would have to 
reopen No. 4 colliery at considerable capital cost. As an 
immediate aid. the stripping of. overburden would have to 
be accelerated and. if the firm demand was permanent 
and large we would have to set our to obtain suitable and 
expensive equipment to augment the supply of coal from 
the open pits. 

This year a further concerted effort has been made to 
reduce stores and capital expenditure has been deferred 
as long as possible in the fill] knowledge, however, that 
when conditions return to normal in the country, the 
colliery will have to be expanded and in certain respects 
modernised at very heavy capital cost. We are. therefore, 
very aware of the need to conserve our cash resources and, 
whenever possible, to add to these. This year the operations 
at the mine were mostly trouble free and each of the types 
of materials produced contributed its share to the fixed 
costs. Sonic of them, however/ resulted in a higher unit 
profit than others. The cokd plant, for example, tf 
operated even at its minimum siEe level of output of 15000 
tor-r^s per month carries a high fixed cost. I reported last 
year that for some time we Save had to stockpile coke 
produced in excess of the quantity sold. 

This year we operated the coke ovens al the minimum 
level and the call for coke hasten suck that we not only 
h2d no surplus production bttf have been able slightly to 
reduce the very large stockpile. The effect of being able 
to sell all nur production and a little more was considerable 
and profitable. We calculate that had we been called upon 
lo supply the local market aldbe, a very large loss on this 
product would have resulted. Coal sales include dry, washed 
and coking coal. Here again the export of coking coal 
added to the profit even though the total quantity of coal 
sold was marginally lower than last year. The by-products 
results were mixed. The quantity of tar sold was lower. 
Ammonia was about the same and benzole a little higher. 
As I explained in my report .test year, our profits for 
1976/77 fell short of those to which we were entitled under 
the coal price agreement with the government by 52 132 000. 


In accordance with that agreement we should have been 
able to recoup this by a price increase ic the rear under 
review. This would have called for increased prices for coal 
and coke beyond those which ihe ao^rnraent could tolerate. 
As a result the agreement was suspended, instead, it wa* 
agreed between us that an increase of 10 per cent in the 
prices per tonne for coal and coke' to Rhodesian consumers 
would be acceptable in ull the circumstances. We applied 
a similar increase to exports. Because of our good perfor- 
mance this year and our abili# to contain costs we have 
applied 81000 000 lo reduce foe deficiency and when the 
coal price agreement i& re-applied we will only look to 
recover SI 132 000 of the 1976/77 deficiency. 

The profit from trading was ^53 355 000 compared with 
S3 191 000 last year. This" is very satisfactory. This year the 
cash resources of the company built up and because of 
this, the income from investments, which includes interest 
on money in hand was somewhat higher. 

The total profit before taxation for the year was 56.727 000 
which includes the amount which w-e have regarded as u 
recoupment of some of the deficiency brought forward to 
which I have referred. . 

After provision for taxation the profit was S4 273 000 and 
this, together with, the amount of 8736 000 brought forward 
made a total of S5 009 000 available for appropriation. 
Before deciding on the final dividend to be declared the 
SJ 000000 to which 1 have referred was nctiohaily ear- 
marked to be appropriated to reserves. vj 

A final dividend of 6 cents per share was declare^ hnd this, 
with the interim dividend of 3 cents a share, makes a total 
distribution of 82 250 000. 

SI 678 000 was transferred to capital reserve which now 
stands at S4 000 000. SI 63 000 was transferred to general 
reserve which now stands at S2 000 000. 8S8S006 iS left to 
be carried forward to the year ending 31st August 1979. 
These decisions have resulted in an increased retention, of 
funds in the form of capital employed of 84 24000% whilst 
there has been, over the ;.ear an increase in w'orklna capita I . 
and liquid funds of S5 802 000. The benefits of rtxenahening 
the capital employed and improving liquidity Should be 
considerable, hearing in mind the awareness which *we and 
the authorities have of the considerable srrainVwhich we 
anticipate in the future. It must be reiterated Writ while 
we have the money for our immediate needs anS in some 
measure sufficient to contemplate an expansion pipigrammc, 
the capital required for any major increase ii the Call 
for our products will renuire additional capital rigll beyond 
our present resources. TV last redemption of th«^3500 000 
of 5t per cent sterling fir*; mortgage debenture raised 
in 1953 has been made. There are. however, a feviricegistered 
holders of this stock who have not lodged their aertificates 
and they are urged to do so as soon as possible. S 
At the colliery everyone has contributed to the’ifell-being 
and to the high standard of safety and efficienigr and we 
appreciate the contribution of the technical director’ the 
general manager, his staff and all our employees- They 
all deserve our thanks m a year when skill, enterprise and 
determination were called for. The training programme has 
continued at an accelerated pace and it should tint be long 
before this will make an appreciable contribution to the 
progress of a number of our .African employees. Turning 
to the prospects for the present financial year, wages have 
been increased and we will nor he able to 'Escape the 
effect? of inflation on our fixed rorts. It wa-> agreed with 
fiovemment that there would be no increase i© ‘.prices on 
1st Novent her this year. -LV 

The unit cost per tonnr. however, will depend oil the 
sales. There are some indications that there tpight b* a 
small reduction in the sales of coal for therniahgeneration 
of electricity but that coking- coal afft-ifr* <bq$ld be less 
than last year. We are hopeful that export si&w will be

The first lhinz that can he said 
about the M.H. Smith iicuret: is 
that they are nut entirely com- 
parable. The main departure con- 
cerns freehold buildings -w hich are 
being depreciated for the first 
knie. knocking . Mfi3.000 off pre- 
Jav profits. In : addition, profits 
last time had the benefit or JEim 
from property sales; this time it 
is only £6,ooo. So altogether, the 
underlying result is little changed. 
An unpor-tain factor has been Lhe 
low- growth in newspaper cover 
prices. But lost sales' from Fleet 
bircet disputes may have cost 
Smith £im in profits. To round 
off the bad news. the. figures 
include £370.060 of Dutch trading 
losses, as well as £5.77,000' of extra- 
ordinary closure costs. Neverthe- 
less, the outlook for the year is 
for pre-tax profits of the order or 
£24 m which should allow the com- 
pany to keep its promise to take 
advantage of the cover rule. 
Assuming a 23 per cent tax- 
charge. the prospective p/C is

THE MAJOR development pro-

cial Shop Centres iHoldtngS). due 
for completion by early IftSO. 
together \vith the continued 
increase in rental values of 

existing investments should 
ensure growth, lhe directors sax*. 

In the annual report to share- 
holders. they also say that it is 
intended to add further prime 
office and .shop projects to the 
development programme. 

The balance sheet shows group 
capital expenditure contracted

As expenditure on the develop- 
ment programme will be higher 
during the current year, it is nor 
anticipated that development out- 
goings Tor ihe year ending June 
24. 1970 will be fully covered by 
net profits the directors s3.v. 

However, (he increase In lhe

its successful do\ clopmonts ha> 
always justified the policy of 
maintaining u development pro- 
gramme. whether nr nor out- 
goings can bo totally covered by 
nct profits. 

Nevertheless, the development 
programme at any one time has 
always been limited fo a reason- 
able commitment having regard 
to the size of the group's net 
assets and net profits. 

Building work ix now in pro- 
gress on all .-ues held for 
development. The only . other 
properties previously held for 
development are three office 
buildings in slouch, which are 
fully let: them- properties have 
been trim* furred to Lite group's 
investment portfolio and included 
in the revaluation. 

However, subject to obtaining 
the necessary consents, it i* 
intended eventually to redevelop 
these properties as a major office 
block, thr directors stale.

CONFntAL\TTO?J of the potential 
of the recently discovered 
Fortescue oil field comes with 
the news that lhe Esso Explora- 
tion and Production Australia/ 
Broken Hill Proprietary partner- 
ship have recovered sandstone 
with indications of hydrocarbon^ 
from the Fortescue 2 well, offshore 
Victoria. 

Four cores cut over the interval 
2,420 to 2,480 metres revealed 
hydrocarbon indications between 
2.441.5 to 2.454.6 metres. Target 
depth is 2.600 metres and lhe well 
is preparing tu drill ahead. 

The significance of the find can- 
not be estimated until electric 
logs and wireline tests have been 
evaluated, while the full extent or 
the field depends on more exten- 
sive drilling. 

Fortescue 2 is located in 
Victoria Licence 5 offshore the 
Gippsland Basin and is SB km 
south-southwest of the West 
Halibut t well which established 
the existence of the Fortescue 
field late in September. 

At the time of the ipiii.nl 
discovery. Mr. Kerin Newman. 
Australian Minister fnr National 
Development said that the find 
could add one to two years supply 
to Australia s crude oil reserves. 


although production tests bBTe 
yet to be made. 

The third. Wembley 10-32-72-8 
W6 confirmed the presence of oil 

on a drill stem test. 

Total says the results ore 
encouraging but that considerable 
evaluation work and further drill- 
ing will be necessary before any 
conclusion can be reached on the 
commercial viability of the find.

coast of South Africa has been 
made by Southern Oil Explora- 
tion Corporation (Pry). 

The discovery, described by the 
company as “ promising ” was

140 km off Mussel Bay in Cape 
Province. 

Completion of the well and 
tests are expected shortly, when 
the company will report in 

greater detail. 

Southern Oil Exploration is

RHODESIA'S major coal producer. 
Wankie Colliery in the Anglo 
American Corporation group, 
forecasts “satisfactory," but 
lower, profits ior the year to 
August 31. Sir Keitb Acutf. the 
chairman, says in his annual 
review that wages have been in- 
creased and the company cannot 
escape the impact of inflation. 
Meanwhile, there has been no 
rise in permitted coal prices this 
year. 

Sir Keitb says costs were con- 
tained in 1977/78 because it was 
possible to equate production 
with deliveries, white the closure 
of No. 4 colliery and the concen- 
tration of opencast production at 
one pit had all kept costs under 
control.

However, iic warns that should 
there be any large increase in 
demand there would he an 
increase in fixed costs ahead of 
the material being available. In 
addition. Wankie would have to 
obtain expensive new equipment. 
While Wankie has sufficient funds 
to meet immediate needs, any 
major expansion programme 
would require additional capital 
“well beyond our present 
resources." 

Sir Keith says that the ,coke 
ovens were operated -at minimum 
levels in the past year and it had 
been possible, as a result of 
export sales, to reduce Wankie’s 
very large coke stockpile. 

Had Wankie heen forced to 
roly on the domestic market 
alone for its coke sales, then 
there would have been a very 
larse loss incurred on this pro- 
duct. On tite coal side, cokin” 
coal exports were also important. 

Sir Keith makes no reference 
to the recent re-opening of the 
Victoria Falls border post anti 
the speculation that Wankie will 
benefit from coal and coke sales 
to Zambia, reports our Salisbury 
correspondent. His forecast of a 
lower profit thus implies that he 
is not overly optimistic on this 
count

ROUND-UP 

The Philippine Government’s 


International Nfckcl-Ireland says 
that it has recently started a 
drilling programme on licences in 
Ireland in which it has an interest 
with Oliver Prospecting and 
Mining. Some mineral Lsat ion has 
heen. intersected but it is too 


The mine is the only Canadian 
uranium operation which extracts 
ore by a leaching process, and this 
has been a problem since start-up 
in June 1977. 

Output in the third quarter of 
this year was 115,000 lbs or 
uranium oxide, after 96,000 lbs in 
the second quarter and 09.000 lbs 
in the firet quarter. 

According to Agnew.Lake, pro- 
duction continues Eo- be- Limited 
by the quantities of ore under 
leach. “ as all other aspects of 
the operations are performing 
satisfactorily." However, uranium 
recovery in the last quarter of 
Ibis year and the first quarter of 
1979 is likely to be reduced 
because of Lite colder weather, the 
extraction rate hems' a rune lion 
of the temperature.. 

As the underground slopes are 
changed over to a flood teaching 
system, production is expected to 
improve, but overall the output is 
nol expected to rLse until the 
second quarter of nest year. 

From that time until the end 
of 1979. the output rate is ex- 
pected to average 70 per cent of 
capacity. The planned rate of 1m 
lbs is expected only in lSSD. 

As a result of these difficulties 
it appears that Agnew Lake will 
be unable to produce sufficient 
uranium to fulfil both its sales 
contracts and its commitments to 
return 2m lbs of borrowed 
uranium by the end of 1981. The 
company is finalising a dead to buy 
500.900 lbs of uranium oxide from 
another producer. - .

Plantation Holdings shareholders 
either to accept or reject his 
offer. In the .formal document he 
writes: “It is not possible at this 
stage to give you any view of the 
market values of the UK company 
and the Malaysian company, since 
these will depend on market 
conditions at the time and on the 
results of the current financial 
year." 

Mr. R. Howard, chief executive 
director of PH. said yesterday 
that his board would be respond- 
ing to the offer in the next week 
or so and a profit forecast would 
be Included. 

He said that the reorganisation 
plans bad been in the pipeline 
for some time and had always 
had the support of MPH. The 
splitting of the company Into two 
would have certain tax advantages 
for MPH. 

MPH expects that British 
holders of shares in the new 
Maiaysian company wdll be given 
Che opportunity of selling to local 
institutions. The price at' which 
the shares wiU be underwritten 
will be announced with details 
of!the re-organisation.

• The division's programme over 
the nest five years is based on 
the belief that there will he very 
little recovery in its basic mar- 
kets, which cover Kraft liner, 
corrugated cardboard. p3per 
sacks and paper for bag making. 
The only bright spot for La 
Cellulose is its cardboard carton 
maker Socar and the improving 
performance of Us OB.in factory 
at Faeture. near Rwdenux. a* 
operations are transferred to it 
from other factories. 

The main weaknesses accord- 
ing to M. Besson, are the cost 
of raw materials and inadequate 
productivity. He estima-iu th3t 
the cost of standing timber per 
square mrtre in Aquitaine is 
about three limes the S3 .90 it 
costs U.S. companies to buy. 

La Cellulose's plan, set mil in 
1977. was based cm concentraiing 
as far as the packacmg -evior 


was concerned on corrugRted 
rardboard boxes and paper bag.*: 
and on centraljsiD.e at Faeture 
production of common ot garden 
produeU; like cardboard. This 
has . already involved f.n lory 
closures, and more will t-o:nc. 

In the rwo years ;o thi; end 
m this. December, the paper 
division-' will have shed 1.370 
people,, and at least * further 
700 will follow. 

In the paper sector, rhe Roque- 
fort factory was shut in January 
v.-ith the Joss of 46S jobs, and 
ihe production of pine pulp has 
been stopped at Condai in favour 
of importing the raw material. 
The manufacture of pulp from 
deciduous trees has been dis- 
continued at Begles. The*e mea- 
sures^ have Cut pulp production 
ny 100.000 tonnes a year.

reckoned that n-er rhe past tvn 
years, produciiviiy iia* risen by 
25 per cent and the price uf raw 
maienals had dropped by the;

The group is shut ting it? bag- 1

?.T Besson said that over the 
next few months the main efforts 
would gn into improving 
Faciure's pnsilmn a* a supplier 
of cardboard for packing cases, 
eveniually using old paper as a 
row material, and to pushing 
ahead with the policy of forcing 
down the price of limber 


A' lot of Creative thinking went 
into developing the SAVE con- 
tainer shown here before it 
reached the testing stage. SAVE 

- a vehicle with an integral con- 
tainer made of synthetic material 

- is designed foruse as an emer- 
gency rescue system. Built to 
travel oyer even ihe roughest 
terrain, itcan be fitted out with 
medical Equipment and com- 
bined with other units to make 
a temporary clinic for use in na- 
tural disaster areas. From the 
outset of- the project Bayer 
worked cfosely with Porsche in 
developing thgs new rescue 
vehicle with the help of the Ger- 
man Ministy for Research and 
Technology,^ 

When itcomes to solving tomor- 
row’s problems today; Bayer is 
sure .to be there. Current re- 
search is vital tor our future. 

Bayer employs more than 6,000 
people in its research and de- 
velopment laboratories and more 
1 than tOC.OOO patents are regis- 
tered in the Company's name.

WILKINS & MITCHELL 


BY ANDREW TAYLORi 


A washing machine group pulls 
back from the brink 


JUST IS month; avn ‘WilVin" 
and Mitchell, the Snrvis wash- 
ing machine group, lay besieged 
on almost every front a? crisis 
threatened to engulf the 
business. 

Frodirct demand had slumped 
at a time when the group bad 
embarked on an ambitious pro- 
gramme m increase washing 
machine output for a stagnant 
UK market. Beset by manage- 
ment and industrial relations 
problems, the group had also 
seen its previously profitable 
Australian business move into 
losses. 

One Wilkins dtrertnr ?»yv 
"The life nF this company was 
bPing measured in minutes." 
Yet from this rprip® for 
disaster, the zrnup now savs it 
has — under a new man-veinent 
ream — put. its house back m 
order. Borrowings havp been 
reduced financial controls 
strengthened and profits are 
back on an upward curve. says 
Wilkins. 

Last year the rrnwp made 
£fi4.QQ0 pro-tax profit, following 
losses of ft.flvn and £S 21 . n on in 
JP7.>7 R and 1P7fi.77 .So last 
month's nows that Thorn 
Electrics) had unloaded. at a 
loss, the JR p°r cent stake in 
Wilkin? it hniiihl. in 1!>73. is not 
a sign of continuing weakness 
" We am not leaving them in 
the lurch." says Mr Harold 
Morguo. Tliorn's finance 
dimetor 

The other side to Wilfcijy-- 
busine? 5 i* th® manufacture of 
hwv dtiti- presses which tradi 
tjonally c»-n«>ratps up tn around 
05 ppr root nf group prnfii 

Tn th® months running up to 
Christmas. 137.2. Wilkins had 
been firing o n all cyjmdors. 
Industry demand for hea-.-.- 


proses bad peaked a few 
months earlier leaving a solid 
nrrW book, while consumer 
spending was running at record 
level*. Sales of washing 

machines were booming 

Th p n came the three-day 
week, production of presses was 
delayed: a harking nf pnenm- 
plclcd orders began to build up 
and cash Bow strain* started to 
appear. Mr. Ken Honon, 

financial director of th? pres? 
hiisineps. said that Hpfpre the 
fhree-day wppk hi* division had 
been fust f^o.nnn short of it? 
tarzer of £430.000 trading profit 
for rfie year. Three months 
jatpr the division turned in 
annual prnfifs pF around 

£230.nnn 

At the ijmp time rh*» rismE 

trend in washing machine sales 

begin tp falter while the level 
of imported marhince — notably 
from Italy — was steadily in. 
crc-isirsa. 

tn is # 3 i.iTv sale? of wash ins 
rn^cli 'npp rose to a record J.finj 
uni:; The following year this 
clumped to j 2m unite a* hire- 
purrhaec controls were re-mtrn- 
rfu*-*p d and inflation started to 
ink'’ off hitting cniistLmers' 
cpe-ndiitg power. Since then 
sal®- haw not ris«n above 1 4m 
unit? and last year washing 
mai'nine sales dipped back to 
1 3m units although there has 
hc"T some recovery this year 

fn xpite of this slump in 1074 
the group opted to rress ahead 
with a £Hm es-pansion plan — 
and Uvn thirds nf the rash was 
oarmarked for file washing 
niic.'ifne division, ft acquired a 
new factor*- at Telford — closed 
nm° months agn. 

Ai'hije Wilkins initial derision 

tn “ Tpand washing machine pro- 


duction may bo. defensible — i? 
says that there was no indication 
at that time that what appeared 
then tn he a market hiccough 
would become a major slump— 
the group admits that rts. later 
decision f.n press ahead with 
expansion was nwhmg less than 
foolhardy. 

In 1973/74 the group was pro- 
ducing around 5.nno wash! n 7 
machinef and dryers and it 
planned tn lift this output to 
around S.oni) units a week. 

Since its cash flow crisis in 
J 976-77 the group has scrapped 
its plans tn rival Hoover and 
Kotpoint sales and Wilkins says 
it has earned out an extensive 
overhaul of its marketing opera- 
tions and has tailored produc- 
tion to meet " clearly identified 
demand.’’ 

Depleted stocks 

Production is currently 
running at iust over fi.phn unit* 1 
a week and Mr. Henry Wilkins, 
the chairman, says that demand 
is continuing to run ahead n f 
output. Although stocks aro 
depleted — at one stage la*t 
month the group had -just 7R «f 
its best selling twin hib 
marhin®? in stock — there ar* 5 no 
major plans to increase produc- 
tion. 

We do not intend, again, to 
fall into IJ 10 trap of jeopardising 
the long-term future of this 
group by chasing short-term 
profit? nr market share!" says 
Mr Wilkins. " IV? are only ton

Opposition to Australian 
inflation accounting moves 


j BY JAMES FORTH 

[THE INSTITUTE of Directors in 
I Australia today declared that it 
j did not support the proposals of 
I Australia's accounting bodies on 
i current cost accounting (CCA). 
The council of llse institute Raid 
that there appeared to be a lack 
uf support at present (or CCA, 
a method or accounting for infla- 
tion. from within the accountancy 
1 profession, the business com- 
! m unity senerally and from 
! govern men t. 

The accounting bodies — the 
Australian Society of Accoun- 
tants and ihe ’ Institute t f 

■ Chartered Accountants in Aik* 
iralia — promptly replied, indicat- 
ing they did not intend l» change 
their stance on CCA. and -saving 

'that a number of la ret- Au.-dra- 

, lian ewnipanrcs were already 
; obtaining management informa- 
tion, on a current cost basis 
The bodies said that they 
tielieved vhat more Australian 
i companies would take this course 
; — and in line with thrir recom- 

■ men da t inn... make ihts informa- 
1 lion known. The <T.A ;*rnp»suls 

by the accounting iiodies call for 
. companies tn present their 

■ accounts un the iraritiional. 
' historical a, -counts basis, hut 

for period* Parting on or after 

■ -Inly -1. 1978. to provide simole- 
tncniarv information nn a CCA 

> basM. Thi* would mean thu the 
accounts of Australian rnnvnnUs 
1 for 1978-79 would carry supple- 
| mentary f:r.A information. 

I Tne institute said it was enn- 
1 rented at the detrimental offeris 
of inflation on the community. 

; and acknowledged thai financial 
statement^ n f companies . based 
on historical cost c-mild be in- 
sufficient and misleading. 


But the Institute adder] that it 
could not support the proposals 
of the accounting bodies at this 
time. Reasons for litis view 
included: concern over the 
acceptability of the basis of CCA; 
the apparent lack of support bT 
the proposals: ' iiltle apparent' 
benefit To shareholders from the 

information; the potential for 
confusion in the mind of readers 
of the supplementary in forma- 
lion; the scope for significant 
inconsistencies of application -by 
companies; the subjectivity : of 

the information; and the dangers 
of misinterpretation. 

The Institute said lhal it sup- 
ported the efforts of the account- 
ing bodies in seeking u solution, 
and that continued research 
should be encouraged and under- 
taken. recognising that the 
method nf accounting eventually 
adopted In Australia should beat 
least closely .in harmony with the 
methods used by its major 
overseas trading partners. It 
suggested lhal any further 
research’ be undertaken in con- 
junction with the accountancy 
profession overseas. It also <airi 
lhal the present fra me work of 
historical oust accounting should 
be retained until an alternative 
and complete method, based on 
sound concept s which . were 
logically developed, had i»ee.n 
debated and w;is acceptable to 
governments, ‘the accountancy 
profession. Jhe business vnrti- 
munity and investors locally and 
overseas. 

The accountancy hodies 
replipd that their proposals' 
enabled a solution to be evolved 


.. • SYDNEY. Nov 14- • 

through practical 'application hy ■ 
encouraging ' companies. - to 

publish CCA information on- a 
supplementary basis. This wotxld- 
illustratc to government - and 
olbers bow. the burden of taxa- 
tion could be unduly harsh on 
companies, particularly those in . 
capital intensive Industries, ! 
when it was levied on paper ; 
profits and not real profits. 

The bodies said that (he 
present' pioposals were broadly 
in concert with overseas develop- ' 
merits, particularly the UK and 
. U.S.. where supplementary infor- 
mation about current costs was 
already heiuy disclosed. 

They- claimed that more than 
40 per cent of UK iisied com- 
panies and 70 per cent of the 100 
largest listed companies were 
already complying in some - 
degree with “Hyde guidelines.” 
while in the U.S. it had- been.- 
obligatory _on large companies 
since 1975-76 to disclose similar 
information. 

The" world was moving ctosjpr to . 
a system that touk account of 
changing prices and chancing 
money values a'nd the South 
African accounting body ' had 
recently issued guidelines ran 
CCA. while guideline. 1 : were 
planned in New Zealand. The 
Australian bodies were fully- 
participating in International, 
development* and thought it 
desirable to continue with 
research and development in 
Australia- The profession was at 
present developing an educa- 
tional programme for its mem- 
bers and «.iihers concerned, 
including senior management of 
corporations.

j AUSTRALIAN Newsprint Mills 
Holdings and the New Zealand 
[group Ta«man Pulp and Paper 
[Company have agreed to unwind 
!a longstanding cross-sharehold- 
ing. largely because of a recent 
decision by ihe Australian com- 
pany to build a large A$160m 
(USS184ml newsprint mill jn 
New South Wales. 

Shareholders of ANM will he 
nffered on a pro rata basis the 
shares in JhHr company held by 
Tasman, while Tasman share- 
holders will similarly be offered 
; the shares in their company at 
, present owned hv ANM. Thp 
latter has Sm Tasman shares, or 
inst over 20 per cent nf the New 
Zealand company, while Tasman 
has 2m ANM shares, or 16 per 
I rent nf the capital. Un this basis 
.the ANM sharps will he offered 
as lo about one for every five 
<held. and Tasman shareholders 
will be offered share? as to one- 
for-four. ANM will act a? 
iTasmitn's agent for the sale of 
'shares in Australia, and Tasman 
i will do the same for ANM in New 
'Zealand. 

The directors uf ANM said 


that the sale of thp <harr* had 
arisen as 3 result of the deusinn 
to build a new mill in NSW, 
because the original reasons Tor 
the share exchange were no 
longer valid. The reversal of the 
original exchange was heins 
undertaken “ with the utmost 
goodwill on both sides," they 
added. 

Funds from me sales would 
assist the liquidity requirements 
nf both companies. ANM would 
use the funds Inwards early 
financial commitments of the 
new mill project 

Tlic original share swap was 
carried out back in 1962-53 and 
reflected a. long term relation- 
ship between the two companies 
for the supply of NZ pulp to 
Australia. 

The new mill planned by ANM 
is due to start production Hn 
1981 with an annual aii£j>ut**r 
180.000 tonnes of new sprit# »' 
year, and will mean that Su?- 
tralia will be about 70 percent 
self sufficient in ils newsprint 
requirement. Tasman Pulft&b- 
tains more than 70 per ceff&of 
its revenue from export s.c$Rder

row the world s most important 
trading group. 

At last count, its 250 million 
people were responsible Jor well 
over one third of international 
business. 

But every year, new 
regulations and legislation add 
to the difficulties of doing 
business there. 

in 1977 alone, there were at 
least 300 new pieces of EEC 
legislation for businessmen to 
wrestle with.

Northampton opens 
oysters with his dagger 


Today it's no problem to buy fresh fish and 
seafoods in Northampton, but in those far-off days 
the Mayor had to keep the offending shell-fish as 
far away from his-nose as possible. 

Modern motorways and railways have 
helped to make the town one of the easiest places 
in England to buy fresh fish, or fresh anything else 
for that. matter. It also works in reverse: 
Northampton has become a thriving commercial 
and industrial centre, being recognised by many 
leading firimas an ideal location for head offices, 
manufacturing and distribution warehouses. It 
can house your firm and your employees, 
and offers awiderange of cultural and - 
social activities. 


Opportunities for growth and success 
abound in this historic county town. Forget the 
Mayor and his dagger: eat your oysters in 
North ampion.

HIGH AMONG the potential 
economic advantages ptit forward 
by Greek proponents of EEC 
membership — and these include 

the. influential Agricultural Bank 
of Greece which co-ordinates 
virtually -alt government policy 
towards agriculture — are the 
benefits in farming, the country's 
biggest industry. 

Guaranteed prices for most 
products inside the Common 
Market, it is claimed, should be 
15 per cent higher, and for olive 
oil nearer 40 per cent more than, 
at present. In addition barriers 
In trade with other EEC i-onn- 
tries in thp shape of tariffs on 
some nrnducts would be 
abolished. 

At the same time, for the 
henefil nf existing EEC members 
who may fear competition, 
Greeks are at pains to point our 
that their sericulture is. for the 
I most part, complementary to. not 
competitive with, that of the rest 
of the Community. 

Milk and dairy products, some 
meals, and barley, all com- 
modities in surplus in the 
present EEC. are habitually 
imported into Greece.- Exports 
from Greece include durum 
wheat, rice, grain maize, cotton, 
tobacco, and out-of-season fruit 
and vegetables in which the 
Nine are not self-sufficient. 

Furthermore, it is stressed, 
there is a policy uT control and 
even pu-itive disincemive for 
Those commodities of which both 
Greepp ,<nd the Nine have a 
surplus, and the encouragement 
nf lhn-»e in demand in Europe. 

Special grants and cheap loans, 
for instance, are currently heing 


denied to growers of olives 
intended for oil production But 
the Greek Government has nego- 
tiated a loan from the World 
Bank of S30m and has itself con- 
tributed a further S54m, m ho- 
used over five years as grSnt 
aid to improve -the efficiency.' 
productivity and marketing of 
out-of-sessna vegetables suitable 
for sale to northern 'Europe. 


Irrigation 

Generous grants are a Ism avail- 
able for farm co-o'p t -ra rives 
which take positive steps m 3 dd 
value and improve the marketing 
of their produce. And enor- 
mously expensive scheme* to 
expand flood irrigation of the 
fertile arable ' plains, involving 
mountain reservoirs and How 
control from 12 rivers all over 
Greece, are progressing all the 
tune. 

At preeeo't about 25 per cent 
of the arable land is able to 
benefit from such schcmf*< and 
there is said to he suiTv-jent 
water ro irrigate up to 50 per 
cent of the plains area » vir- 
tually. 

However. 60 per cent of Gr-ece 
is made up oF mountains which 
are barely capable of supporting 
the flocks nf sheep and coats 
which graze, ever them. }n 
spire of ambitious attempts to 
restructure rh<. agriculture, and 
wherever irrinatinn is insi : ,jied 
or co-operatives take over, ihe 
average size of a farm is -till 
about 3.5 hectares tS.5 arri'-i 

After generations of dividing 
land belw-een families, according 
to ancient traditions nf inheri- 
tance, even such tiny farms are 


usually split into several separa- 
aied strips. 

The 1971 census indicated that 
some 34 per cent of the popula- 
tion derived the majority of its 
living from farming. Both the 
Government and the Agricultural 
Bank, oo the other hand, have 
conducted sample, surveys since 
and say the figure is acluaUv 
cluse TO 24 per cent. Even accept- 
ing the lower figure, however, the 
farm population of Greece is 
Three times the average of the 
present Common Market. 

Clearly the problems tn be 
fticed by the rest of the Common 
■Market, as Greece finalises its 
terms of entry, will he social as 
well as agricultural. One of the 
key questions to be answered 
will he the extent in which the 
EEC is prepared to help to fin- 
ance the continued, and essential, 
rest met urine of Greek farms. 

Overshadowing the whole 
dabare will be the interests of 
farmers in ■ Italy and Southern 
France, who produce essentially 
the same comnmdiiics as Greece, 
many nf which are in surplus, 
and the pnMihilitv that Spain. 
Portugal and Turkey will join 
soi*n aft hi- wards. 

Concessions made to help 
Greece with ns relatively small 
(9m i population would not nped 
to be of great significance to the 
EEC hnrlirt. Rut su.-h con ces- 
sions rrmid l-ecouie precodenis 
when the other nations negotiate 
with ihqir lamer populations and 
area tor capacity tn compcie with 
existing members’ ini crests. So 
Greek membership could be a 
key to fin tire development of the 
Community agricultural policy. 


Bigger world wheat crop likely 


WORLD WHEAT production this 
season should be about 30m 
tonnes above last year .and could 
approach the record 4J7m tonnes 
harvested in 1976. according to 
the Organisation fur Economic 
Co-operation and Development 
(OECD), reports AP-Dow Jones. 
y A report by ihe OECD's com- 
mittee for agriculture forecasts 
•hat crops outside the U.S. will 
I be “ at least ” 35m tonnes higher 
than last year, while U.S pro- 
| dilution is likely to be 6m tonnes 
i lower as a result of the wheat 
j - set-aside " programme, 
j Output in the Soviet Union is 
expected to rise# to between 
1 105m and 110m tnnnes from 92m. 


while production in China should 
rise to 44m tonnes frbm 30m. 


Total production’ in the 24 
member countries nf the OECD is 
estimated to he only about 5m 
tunnes higher than last year, but 
the reduction should be more 
than offset by a rise of almost 20 
per cent in the EEC to 46.5m 
tonnes from 38.5m and of about 
50 per cent in Australia to 13.8m 
from 9 4m. 


Stocks of wheat in exporting 
countries at the beginning of the 
current season were also heavy 
at nearly 54m tonnes, the OECD 
remarks, and could rise by some 
5m or 6m tonnes by the end of 


. PARIS, Nov. 14 
the season. More than half 
would be held in the U.S. it 
states. 

Production of coarse grains 
“ appears likely m increase by 
about SOni tonnes to reach a new 
i peord of alum i 730n: tonnes, 
the OECD fu recasts, with OECD 
countries .accounting for about 
one-third or Hi* increase. 

The OECD committee says that 
while imports by the Soviet 
Union are exported to decline by 
LSni uin nes— the biggest reduc- 
tion in forecast imports — “the 
reduction, is nVodesi in relation 
to the .production increase, sug- 
gesting a willingness to build up 
stocks.’’

“'New lime" dealings may lake place 
from l.M am two business days earlier. 

Leading equities had their be .si 
day for some 13 months as 
measured by yesterday's jump «»f 
13.0 to 4S7.5 in the FT SO-nharc 
inder. Gilt-edged securities were 
nor leD oui or the picture and a 
revived large investment demand 
exhausted " the . Government 
broker's supplies pf rhe near- 
short lap Exchequer 10 per cent 
19S3 following the running nut of 
the long tap last Friday. 

Equity prices moved ahead from 
the «lart with sentiment helped 
hy hopes or an early announce- 
ment of an agreement between the 
Government and TUti leaders In 
restrain inflation. The resumption 
of talks today between Ford 
management and unions was an- 
other helpful factor and in Ihc 
market background encouraging 
noises were being heard about the 
October trade returns. 

Quotations were pushed higher 
along with those oT British Funds 
w the after-hours' trade following 
the much bet ler-than -expect l-iJ 
ru-rreru account surplus of £20ym 
m the UK's October balance of 
trade. 

The equity market had been 
poised for some days to make a 
technical rally after the index fall 
of around 12 per cent from its 
mid-Sep rent her high for ihc year. 
Decently, sellers have been notice- 
ably more rclucianl at the lower 
lei els and professional operators 
had trimmed their short positions. 
Yesterday's spurt, which left price-* 
of the index constituents with 
gains ranging to top and 
occasionally more, reflected bear 
closing and attempted buying in a 
market acutely short of stock. 

British Funds were more event- 
ful than equities. A- revived 
investment demand centred on 
the ncar--.hort tap issue and the ' 
Government brokers supplies of 
the stock. Exchequer 10 per cent 
1OS0. were exhausted at SSL after 
he had withdrawn at SSI. The 
upturn was given added impetus 
b> the unexpected October trade 
surplus and after-hour s' the 
tendency \vj« very limi with 
quotations at both ends of the 
market around l-point higher on 
the day. 

Quirt conditions prevailed in 
thr investment currency market. 
Ihc premium again moved 
between very narrow limits and 
r’cmually closed j lower at 
s 2 per cent. Yesterday's SE con- 
version factor was <1.7270 (0.72231. 

in belated response to the 
week-end revelation that Pctro 
Canada had acquired a 48 per 
rmi -hareholding in Pacific 
Fctmleuni. the latter jumped 3; i 
points to £32; in Canadians. i

BONN, Nov. 14. 
THE COLOGNE public 
prosecutor's office is investigat- 
ing whether there are grounds 
for proceedings against the 
auditors of Herslatt — the bank 
which collapsed in 1974 with 
losses uf over DM lbn. 

A spokesman for the office 
said today it was hoped that a 
decision on whether or not 
charges were to he made wuuld 
emerge before tile end of the 
year. The investigation was 
being made on suspicion or 
violation of paragraph 403 of 
company law. which emisagrs

The Herslall audit for the

out by Hie well-known Essen- 
based company, Karoli- 
VVirtschaftspruefuiig — part of 
the iilcLinlock Main Lafrentz 
International grouping — and 
signed by two senior auditors. 
Dr. Hermann Karol i and Dr. 
Karl Christoph. 

A spokesman for Karoli- 
Wirtschaftspruefung, replying 
to. questions today, said the 
company was sure that the 

im estigation would be 
dropped. He declined to give 
further details, not least ou 
grounds that Dr. Karol i himself 
had not so Tar been beard by 
the public prosecutor's office.

investigation had been made

The supervisory Guard, 
under its chairman and

Dr. Haus Gerting, noted iu the

brought “ unqualified notice of
