AIR CANADA: Reports Third Quarter 2004 Financial Results
--------------------------------------------------------
On October 15, 2004, ACE Aviation Holdings Inc (ACE) released an
estimate of $235 million representing operating income before
reorganization and restructuring items for the third quarter of
2004.  The objective of the early release was to ensure that
stakeholders were given current information on its recent
operations given record high fuel prices and the deteriorated
performance of US carriers.

ACE reported operating income of $243 million before
reorganization and restructuring items for the third quarter of
2004, an improvement of $226 million from the third quarter of
2003.  Operating revenues were up $268 million or 12 per cent.  
The improvement in passenger revenues of $222 million, or 12 per
cent, was due to a recovery in all markets, with the exception of
the US transborder market.  International markets rebounded from
a SARS impacted 2003.  A stronger domestic market showed
improving yield and traffic performance as well.  Total operating
expenses increased $42 million or 2 per cent despite an increase
in fuel expense of $138 million on an ASM capacity increase of 6
per cent.  Operating expense per ASM was 4 per cent below the
2003 quarter for the Mainline-related operations (down 11 per
cent, excluding fuel expense).

As at November 9, 2004, ACE's consolidated cash balance,
measured on the basis of cash in its bank accounts, amounted to
approximately $1.9 billion.  The Corporation's debt and
capitalized operating lease obligations, net of cash, has been
reduced from the previously disclosed approximate $5 billion to
approximately $4 billion mainly as a result of the strengthening
of the Canadian dollar.

Since Air Canada's filing under CCAA, it has recorded
significant reorganization and restructuring items directly
associated with the rearranging of its business affairs while
under the Court's protection.  These "reorganization and
restructuring items" represent revenues, expenses, gains and
losses and provisions for losses since the date of filing that
can be directly associated with the reorganization and
restructuring of the business under CCAA.

In the third quarter of 2004, reorganization and restructuring
items amounted to $313 million, of which $281 million represented
non-cash items.  As the Corporation emerged from CCAA proceedings
on September 30, 2004, this is the last quarter that
reorganization and restructuring items will be recorded.  Foreign
exchange gains on non-compromised long term monetary items of $123
million were recorded in the quarter.  With the benefit of fresh
start reporting and the recognition of the remaining renegotiated
leases effective on emergence, results for the fourth quarter will
more accurately reflect the progress achieved in the airline's
restructuring.

The net loss for the quarter including the above significant items
was $81 million.  This compares to a net loss of $263 million in
the third quarter of 2003, an improvement of $182 million.  The
third quarter of 2003 included $273 million of reorganization and
restructuring items.

"In October, we achieved record load factors for the seventh
straight month and forward bookings remain strong for the balance
of the quarter," said Robert Milton, Chairman, President and CEO
of ACE Aviation Holdings Inc.  "Our commercial strategy is
producing the desired results.  Notwithstanding an obvious
concern over fuel prices, we continue to expect to achieve
significant profitability in 2005 over the full year," said Mr.
Milton.

EXIDE TECH: Posts $17.1 Million of Net Loss in Sept. 2004
---------------------------------------------------------
Exide Technologies (NASDAQ: XIDE), a global leader in stored
electrical energy solutions, reported financial results for the
second quarter and first six months of fiscal 2005 ended
Sept. 30, 2004.

Consolidated net sales for the second quarter of fiscal 2005 rose
8.5% to $637.6 million from $587.4 million in the second quarter
of fiscal 2004.  Quarterly net sales results benefited from
favorable currency exchange rates compared to the prior year
and the effect of the Company's lead-related pricing actions.

Consolidated net loss for the second quarter of fiscal 2005,
including restructuring costs of $4.8 million, reorganization
costs of $1.7 million and gain on revaluation of warrants
liability of $12.1 million, was $17.1 million, or $0.68 per
share, compared to a net loss of $15.7 million, or $0.57 per
share, in the second quarter of fiscal 2004, including
restructuring costs of $4.8 million and reorganization costs of
$15.7 million.  Net loss as adjusted for these items was $22.7
million for the second quarter of fiscal 2005, compared to net
income as adjusted of $4.8 million for the second quarter of
fiscal 2004.

"The Company experienced further dramatic escalation in
commodity prices during the second quarter of fiscal year 2005,
especially the price of lead," said Craig H. Muhlhauser,
President and Chief Executive Officer of Exide Technologies.

"Lead, which is our number-one commodity and comprises
approximately one-third of the Company's cost of goods sold, rose
to an average of EUR763 ($932) per metric tonne for the second
quarter of fiscal year 2005 versus the prior year second quarter
average of EUR454 ($511) per metric tonne - nearly a 70%
increase.

"Due to the Company's inability to hedge lead prior to our
emergence from Chapter 11 and despite pricing actions and cost
reduction initiatives implemented during the quarter, we were
only able to offset 30-40% of the approximately $40 million
adverse cost impact from lead price increases during the course
of the quarter.  In the second half, we believe the Company will
realize additional benefits from the lead hedging, pricing
actions, restructuring and cost reductions implemented in the
first half of fiscal year 2005 to mitigate the impact of higher
lead prices."

                 Consolidated Half-Year Results

As a result of the Company's emergence from Chapter 11 on
May 5, 2004, financial results for the first half of the fiscal
year are split between "Successor Company" and "Predecessor
Company."  For purposes of the presentation of results of
operations for the first half of fiscal 2005, unless otherwise
indicated, the results of the Predecessor Company for the period
April 1, 2004 through May 5, 2004 have been combined with the
results of the Successor Company for the period May 6, 2004
through September 30, 2004.

Consolidated net sales for the first half of fiscal 2005 rose 6.7%
to $1.25 billion from $1.17 billion in the first half of fiscal
2004.

Consolidated net income for the first half, including Fresh Start
accounting adjustments, restructuring costs, reorganization
items, gain on revaluation of warrants liability, gain on the
discharge of liabilities subject to compromise and cumulative
effect of change in accounting principle was $1.77 billion
compared to a net loss of $54.3 million in the first half of
2004.

Net loss as adjusted for these items was $48.1 million in the
first half of fiscal 2005 compared to a net loss of $7.1 million
in the first half of fiscal 2004.

The Company estimates that it recovered approximately 30-40% of
the approximately $65 million adverse lead cost impact in the
first half of fiscal 2005 through pricing and related actions as
compared with the first half of fiscal 2004.

Results for the second quarter and first half of fiscal 2005
reflect the implementation of Fresh Start accounting in accordance
with the Company's emergence from Chapter 11.  Adopting Fresh
Start reporting has resulted in material adjustments to the
historical carrying values of the Company's assets and
liabilities, and has required the Company to allocate the
reorganization value to its assets based upon estimated fair
values.  The Company's Form 10-Q, filed this week with the U.S.
Securities and Exchange Commission, provides a discussion of the
effects of Fresh Start accounting on comparable earnings.

                     Transportation Business

For its Transportation business, the Company reported net sales of
$404.4 million for the second quarter 2005, a 9.1% increase
compared to $370.6 million for the same quarter of 2004.  Results
benefited mainly from favorable currency exchange rates, higher
average selling prices and higher third-party lead sales
in the smelters.

Transportation income before reorganization items, income taxes,
minority interest and cumulative effect of change in accounting
principle in the second quarter of 2005 was $10.6 million compared
to $38.7 million in the second quarter of fiscal 2004,
attributable to higher lead costs and North American smelter
inefficiencies, offset partially by higher average selling prices
and margin benefits from third-party lead sales.

For the first six months of fiscal 2005, the Transportation
business reported net sales of $782.2 million, a 7.5% increase
compared to $727.9 million in the first six months of fiscal
2004.

Transportation income before reorganization items, income
taxes, minority interest and cumulative effect of change in
accounting principle in the first six months of fiscal 2005 was
$21.0 million compared to $62.5 million in the same period last
year. Higher lead costs were the principal factor adversely
impacting reported results.

                   Industrial Energy Business

For the Industrial Energy business, net sales for the second
quarter of fiscal 2005 were $233.2 million, a 7.6% increase
compared to $216.8 million for the same period of fiscal 2004.
Favorable currency exchange rates, higher Motive Power volumes
and higher average selling prices positively impacted Industrial
Energy net sales in the second quarter.

The Industrial Energy business reported income before
reorganization items, income taxes, minority interest and
cumulative effect of change in accounting principle for the
second quarter 2005 of $1.8 million compared to $10.6 million in
the second quarter of the previous fiscal year.  Industrial
Energy income results declined as a result of higher lead costs
not recovered through pricing and lower Network Power sales.

For the Industrial Energy business, net sales for the first half
of fiscal 2005 were $467.9 million, a 5.4% increase compared to
$444.1 million for the same period of 2004.  Reported income
before reorganization items, income taxes, minority interest and
cumulative effect of change in accounting principle for the
Industrial Energy business segment in the first half of 2005 was
$12.2 million compared to $24.6 million in the first half of the
previous fiscal year.  Higher lead costs were the principal
factor adversely impacting reported results.

KMART HOLDING: Earns $553 Million of Net Income in 3rd Quarter
--------------------------------------------------------------
Kmart Holding Corporation (NASDAQ: KMRT) reported financial
results for the third quarter of fiscal 2004.  For the 13 weeks
ended October 27, 2004, Kmart Holding Corporation (Kmart or the  
Company) reported net income of $553 million, or $5.45 per  
diluted share compared to a net loss of $(23) million or $(0.26)  
per diluted share for the same period in 2003.  Adjusted net  
income and adjusted diluted earnings per share, excluding gains  
on sales of assets, primarily related to previously announced  
transactions with Home Depot and Sears, were $59 million, or  
$0.59 per diluted share for the 13 weeks ended October 27, 2004,  
compared to adjusted net loss and adjusted diluted loss per share  
of $(24) million and $(0.27) for the same prior year period.   
Below is a reconciliation of adjusted results to GAAP results.

Same-store sales and total sales decreased 12.8% and 13.7%,  
respectively, for the 13 weeks ended October 27, 2004, compared  
to the 13 weeks ended October 29, 2003.  Total sales were $4.4  
billion for the 13 weeks ended October 27, 2004, compared to $5.1  
billion in the 13 weeks ended October 29, 2003.

Aylwin Lewis, President and Chief Executive Officer of Kmart,
said, "We are pleased that the Company continued to make good
progress in improving profitability in the quarter.  In addition,
with same-store sales in October improving relative to the year-
to-date trend, although still negative, we are beginning to see
stability as we anniversary the advertising, promotional and
inventory changes instituted last year.  More importantly, we  
have achieved this improvement without altering our focus on  
profitable sales.  While we are not yet satisfied with the  
results, we believe it provides us a solid base for improvement  
in the important fourth quarter.

Mr. Lewis continued, "In my short time at Kmart, I am excited by
the dramatic improvement that the Company has achieved in our
product offering, reflecting the increased investment in quality
merchandise in the stores.  This is particularly apparent in
apparel and electronics, as this quarter we completed our home  
electronics reset, and continued the roll out of our new more  
stylish and higher quality apparel lines.

"In addition, we recently upgraded and greatly improved the online
shopping experience for our customers through http://www.Kmart.com/
and last week we announced the launch of our new private label
credit card, Kmart Rewards.  Together, these initiatives provide
us with the products and tools to better serve our customers,
which in turn will fuel the continued growth and profitability of
our Company.  We have a lot of work ahead of us to achieve the
level of in-store execution consistent with our goal of being a
great company, but I have been impressed by the enthusiasm and
energy of the executives and store associates, and believe that
together, we have the ability and willingness to meet the
challenge."

Operating income for the 13 weeks ended October 27, 2004 was  
$909 million, as compared to a loss of $(11) million for the same  
period in the prior year.  Adjusted operating income for the 13  
weeks ended October 27, 2004 was $102 million, as compared to a  
loss of $(12) million for the same period in the prior year.

Adjusted operating income (loss), adjusted net income (loss) and
adjusted diluted earnings (loss) per share are non-GAAP measures.  
The Company has provided these adjusted figures to provide a more
meaningful comparison of ongoing results and analysis of the
Company's operating performance, as they reflect core operations
excluding the significant gains realized on sales of assets.  Non-
GAAP financial measures should be evaluated in conjunction with,
and are not a substitute for, GAAP financial measures.

For the 39 weeks ended October 27, 2004 Kmart reported net income
of $801 million, or $7.93 per diluted share.  Gains on sales of
assets contributed $558 million or $5.50 per diluted share during
the 39 weeks.

Operating activities provided net cash of $171 million for the 39
weeks ended October 27, 2004 which was favorably affected by our
strong net earnings.  This was partially offset by the increase in
our inventories, net of associated accounts payable, for the
upcoming holiday season and by funding $77 million for future
associate medical and dental expenses.

Investing activities generated $345 million for the 39 weeks ended
October 27, 2004.  During the current year, we received proceeds
of $524 million from sales of real and personal property,
including $432 million from the sale of owned and assignment of
leased properties to Sears and Home Depot.  In addition, we
purchased 28 previously leased operating properties for
$103 million.

Cash and cash equivalents at the end of the quarter was
approximately $2.6 billion, which excludes approximately $400  
million expected upon the delivery of stores to Sears in the  
first quarter of 2005 pursuant to the previously announced store  
sale transaction.  The $400 million is included in Accounts  
receivable, net as of October 27, 2004.

Mr. Lewis commented, "We expect to end the year with over  
$3.1 billion in cash, which does not include approximately $400  
million that we will receive in the first quarter of next year  
from the sale of stores to Sears.  This demonstrates the  
considerable financial strength and cash generation of the  
Company, and provides the foundation for our continued  
improvement.  Kmart has been very successful doing more with  
less; we are now in a position to do more with more.  We are very  
excited about the opportunities before us."

       Management's Discussion and Analysis of Operations

Favorable mark-on, improvements in shrink, and reductions in  
markdowns on promotional and clearance items were the primary  
factors improving our gross margin rate this quarter.  This  
improvement in the current quarter was partially offset by the  
effect of the decline in sales on certain fixed operating costs.   
As a result, gross margin as a percentage of sales increased to  
26.1% for the 13 weeks ended October 27, 2004, from 22.9% in the  
prior year comparable quarter.  Gross margin decreased $22  
million to $1.15 billion, for the 13 weeks ended October 27,  
2004, from $1.17 billion for the 13 weeks ended October 29, 2003.

Selling, general and administrative expenses decreased $136
million to $1.04 billion for the 13 weeks ended October 27, 2004,
from $1.18 billion for the 13 weeks ended October 29, 2003.  SG&A,
as a percentage of sales, increased to 23.7% for the 13 weeks
ended October 27, 2004, from 23.2% in the prior year comparable
quarter.  The decline in SG&A resulted from a reduction in store
payroll and related expenditures due to increased operating
efficiencies and reduced sales volume at our stores, and to
reductions in newspaper advertising.  Included in SG&A for the
period is compensation expense of $5 million related to the
departure of our former President and Chief Executive Officer.

Interest expense, net for the 13 weeks ended October 27, 2004 and
October 29, 2003 was $22 million and $24 million, respectively.
During the 13 weeks ended October 27, 2004, $13 million of
interest expense was recorded for the accretion of obligations
recorded at net present value.  To reduce the overall cost of our
Credit Facility, we restated and amended it in October 2004,
reducing the facility from $1.0 billion to $800 million. We
recognized $6 million of debt issuance costs in Interest expense,
net for the 13 weeks ended October 27, 2004, $3 million of which
we accelerated in conjunction with the reduction to our Credit
Facility.  Interest expense is net of interest income of $9
million and $2 million for the 13 weeks ended October 27, 2004 and
October 29, 2003, respectively.

           Discussion of Year-to-Date Adjusted EBITDA

Year-to-date adjusted EBITDA (Year-to-date earnings before
interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, net gains on sales  
of assets, bankruptcy-related recoveries and certain other items)  
is a non-GAAP financial measure.  Year-to-date adjusted EBITDA is  
not the same as EBITDA defined in Kmart's Credit Facility.  Year-
to-date adjusted EBITDA is a Company-defined metric used by  
Kmart's management for the administration of the Company's  
incentive compensation program for eligible employees.  Year-to-
date adjusted EBITDA is not a measure or indicator of the overall  
financial condition or performance of Kmart and should not be  
used by investors as a basis for formulating investment decisions  
as it excludes a number of important cash and non-cash recurring
items.  Management compensates for this limitation by using GAAP  
measures, as well, in managing the business.

             Comparability of Financial Statements

Upon emergence from bankruptcy on May 6, 2003, Kmart Corporation
(Predecessor Company) applied the provisions of Fresh-Start
accounting effective as of April 30, 2003, at which time a new
reporting entity, Kmart Holding Corporation (Kmart), was created.  
As a result of applying Fresh-Start accounting, the reported
historical financial statements of the Predecessor Company for
periods ended prior to May 1, 2003 generally are not comparable to
those of Kmart.

Therefore, comparisons of earnings per share data to Predecessor
Company results are not included herein.  As referenced within
this news release, results of operations for the period ended
April 30, 2003, refer to the Predecessor Company.

recapitalization of Mayflower National Life Insurance Company,
Alderwoods Group has utilized $65 million of the proceeds to
reduce long-term debt.

Field Organizational Structure Changed to Address At-Need and Pre-
Need Growth:

      -- The Company introduced changes to its field
         organizational structure designed to improve the
         performance of its at-need business and increase
         the number of funeral services performed across
         its operations.

      -- The Company created the new position of Senior Vice
         President of Advance Planning, to improve the
         effectiveness of the sales organization and focus
         on growing the Company's pre-need funeral and
         cemetery backlog.

Mr. Paul Houston, President and CEO of Alderwoods Group, said, "We
continued to make progress in many areas of our business in the
third quarter, particularly in our cemetery and insurance
revenues, strong operating expense controls and debt reduction and
divestiture programs. However, we recognize that we need to take
strong and decisive action to improve the number of funeral
services performed."

"To that end, we are realigning our field organizational structure
to increase the levels of coaching and support available to our
locations," Mr. Houston continued.  "We believe this will help
enhance our service to families and improve the execution of our
marketing and community outreach programs."

Mr. Houston added, "With the appointment of new leadership for
pre-need sales, we look forward to further integrating our pre-
need funeral business with our pre-need insurance operations. Our
objective is to build our backlog and, over time, increase the
percentage of funeral calls it contributes to our business."

                   Refinancing and Debt Reduction

During the third quarter of 2004, the Company's long-term debt was
reduced by $96.9 million, through proceeds from the sale of
Security Plan Life Insurance, the sale of other assets held for
sale and from cash generated from operations.  As at October 9,
2004, long-term debt outstanding stood at $499.1 million, a
reduction of $335.3 million since the Company emerged on January
2, 2002.  At the end of the quarter, cash on hand was $10.2
million.

In August 2004, the Company successfully completed the refinancing
of substantially all of its long-term debt. The Company
repurchased the principal amount of $316.2 million (approximately
98.6%) of its outstanding 12.25% Senior Notes due 2009.  The
tender premium on the long-term debt repayment and related
financing costs amounted to $35.3 million and are included in
interest expense for the 16 weeks ended October 9, 2004.

The repurchase was financed with the net proceeds from the
issuance of $200 million of 7.75% Senior Unsecured Notes due 2012
and borrowing under an amended Senior Secured Term Loan B.

At October 9, 2004, the carrying amounts of the Company's long-
term debt of $499.1 million were as follows:

      -- Senior Secured Term Loan B due in 2009 of $281.9 million;

      -- 7.75% Senior Unsecured Notes due 2012 of $200 million;

      -- 12.25% Senior Unsecured Notes due 2009 of $4.5 million;
         and

      -- Promissory notes and capitalized obligations of
         $12.7 million.

"We are pleased with the strong results of our refinancing and
debt reduction initiatives, which have succeeded in bringing our
long-term debt below $500 million at the end of the quarter,
substantially reducing our interest expense," said Mr. Houston.

Based on the Company's debt levels at October 9, 2004, and
interest rates in effect at November 17, 2004, interest expense is
expected to be approximately $31 million annually.  This reflects
a lower overall interest rate on the Company's debt as a result of
the refinancing and an anticipated lower rate on the Senior
Secured Term Loan B as a result of the Company meeting a specified
consolidated leverage ratio threshold as of October 9, 2004.

         Discontinued Operations and Assets Held for Sale

Over the past several years, Alderwoods Group engaged in a
strategic market assessment to identify operating assets that did
not fit into the Company's market or business strategies.  As a
result of this assessment, a significant number of properties have
been identified as assets held for sale and then subsequently
sold.

In the quarter, the Company sold 21 funeral and 20 cemetery
locations in North America. Gross proceeds of these dispositions
were $15.5 million.  In the 40 weeks ended October 9, 2004, the
Company sold 27 funeral and 39 cemetery locations in North
America.

As of October 9, 2004, the Company holds for sale 41 funeral
homes, 34 cemeteries and five combination properties. The Company
expects to complete the sale of these properties by the end of
2004. Provided that the properties are ultimately sold for
estimated proceeds, accumulated unrealized gains of approximately
$10 million will be included in income upon disposition.

The Company now believes that the identification of non-strategic
businesses for disposal is substantially complete. However, the
Company will continue to evaluate its assets, from time to time,
with the intent of acquiring and disposing of assets in order to
optimize the Company's assets.

Upon completion of the disposal of the properties identified for
sale, the Company will operate 642 funeral homes, 76 cemeteries
and 56 combination properties.

On October 1, 2004, the Company's subsidiary Mayflower National
Life Insurance Company completed the sale of all of the
outstanding shares of Security Plan Life Insurance Company.  
Mayflower received cash proceeds from this sale of $85 million and
Alderwoods Group recorded a pre-tax gain on the sale of
approximately $16 million in the third quarter.  After payment of
applicable taxes and expenses associated with the transaction and
the recapitalization of Mayflower, the Company has utilized $65
million of the proceeds to reduce long-term debt.

         Financial Summary 16 Weeks Ended October 9, 2004
   
                             Overview

Total net loss of $13.4 million for the 16 weeks ended October 9,
2004, increased by $0.2 million compared to net loss of $13.2
million for the 16 weeks ended October 4, 2003.  Basic and diluted
loss per share were $0.33 for the 16 weeks ended October 9, 2004
and for the 16 weeks ended October 4, 2003.

                      Continuing Operations

Total revenue for the 16 weeks ended October 9, 2004, was $212.0
million compared to $205.7 million for the 16 weeks ended Oct. 4,
2003, an increase of $6.3 million, or 3.1%. The increase in total
revenue was the result of an increase in cemetery and insurance
revenue, which was partially offset by a decrease in funeral
revenue.

Funeral revenue was $137.0 million for the 16 weeks ended Oct. 9,
2004, which was down by $1.8 million compared to $138.8 million
for the 16 weeks ended October 4, 2003.  The decrease in funeral
revenue was primarily due to a decrease in funeral services
performed, which was partially offset by an increase in average
funeral revenue per service.  For the 16 weeks ended October 9,
2004, funeral services performed were 34,074, down 4.4% compared
to 35,645 funeral services performed in the 16 weeks ended Oct. 4,
2003.

Average funeral revenue per service was $4,020 for the 16 weeks
ended October 9, 2004, a 3.2% increase compared to $3,893 for the
16 weeks ended October 4, 2003.

Funeral gross margin as a percentage of revenue decreased to 18.8%
for the 16 weeks ended October 9, 2004, compared to 21.9% for the
corresponding period in 2003.  The decrease in gross margin was
primarily due to the decrease in funeral revenue, and increases in
wages, benefits, and operating expenses.

Cemetery revenue for the 16 weeks ended October 9, 2004, was $49.0
million, which was up by $2.3 million, or 4.9% compared to $46.7
million for the 16 weeks ended October 4, 2003.  The increase is
due to higher at-need service and merchandise revenue and
recognition of pre-need merchandise.

Cemetery gross margin as a percentage of revenue was 11.9% of
revenue for the 16 weeks ended October 9, 2004, compared to 8.9%
of revenue for the 16 weeks ended October 4, 2003.  The increase
in the cemetery gross margin percentage was primarily due to the
revenue increase, partially offset by increases in cost of goods
sold, selling expenses and facilities costs.

The Company's insurance operations generated revenue of
$26.0 million for the 16 weeks ended October 9, 2004, compared to
revenue of $20.2 million for the 16 weeks ended October 4, 2003.  
Insurance revenue increased primarily due to higher premium and
investment income.  Insurance gross margin as a percentage of
revenue increased to 6.1% for the 16 weeks ended October 9, 2004,
compared to 1.2% for the corresponding period in 2003, primarily
as a result of the revenue increase.

General and administrative expenses totaled $14.9 million for the
16 weeks ended October 9, 2004, while for the corresponding period
in 2003, general and administrative expenses totaled $13.3
million. The bonus accrual for the 16 weeks ended October 9, 2004,
was $1.6 million lower than the corresponding period last year.  
However, during the 16 weeks ended October 4, 2003, general and
administrative expenses were reduced by $3.1 million as a result
of net interest income received from a tax refund in connection
with the audit of the predecessor company's 1993 through 1998
federal income tax returns.

For the 16 weeks ended October 9, 2004, interest expense was
$50.1 million, an increase of $22.4 million, or 80.6%, compared to
the 16 weeks ended October 4, 2003.  The effect of lower effective
interest rates and debt repayments made by the Company during 2003
and the 40 weeks ended October 9, 2004, were more than offset by
costs associated with the Company's refinancing of long-term debt
that occurred during the 16 weeks ended October 9, 2004.

For the 16 weeks ended October 9, 2004, net income tax benefit was
$6.2 million, compared to $0.2 million for the 16 weeks ended
October 4, 2003.

The effective tax rate varied from the statutory tax rate,
primarily because the Company was not able to fully realize the
income tax benefit associated with the cost of refinancing of long
term debt.  In addition, the losses incurred in certain
jurisdictions did not offset the tax expenses in profitable
jurisdictions.

Net loss from continuing operations was $26.0 million, or $0.65
basic and diluted loss per share for the 16 weeks ended October 9,
2004, compared to a net loss of $7.1 million, or $0.18 basic and
diluted loss per share for the 16 weeks ended October 4, 2003.

Pre-need funeral and cemetery contracts written during the 16
weeks ended October 9, 2004, totaled $52.9 million and $26.3
million, respectively.  For the 16 weeks ended October 4, 2003,
pre-need funeral and cemetery contracts written totaled $51.4
million and $23.7 million, respectively.  The Company is
continuing its program to increase pre-need sales.  The Company
believes that pre-need sales are an important part of building the
foundation for future revenue and positive cash flow.

                     Discontinued Operations

The Company has classified all the locations identified for
disposal as assets held for sale in the consolidated balance
sheets and recorded any related operating results, long-lived
asset impairment provision, and gains or losses recorded on
disposition as income from discontinued operations.  The Company
has reclassified prior periods to reflect any comparative amounts
on a similar basis.

For the 16 weeks ended October 9, 2004, income from discontinued
operations, net of tax, was $12.7 million, or $0.32 basic and
diluted loss per share, which included $16.9 million of pre-tax
disposal gains, and a pre-tax long-lived asset impairment
provision of $0.7 million.

            Financial Summary 40 Weeks Ended October 9, 2004

                            Overview

Total net loss for the 40 weeks ended October 9, 2004, was
$15.0 million compared to net income of $0.4 million for the 40
weeks ended October 4, 2003, a decrease of $15.4 million. Basic
and diluted loss per share were $0.37 for the 40 weeks ended
October 9, 2004. Basic and diluted earnings per share were $0.01
for the 40 weeks ended October 4, 2003.

                      Continuing Operations

Total revenue for the 40 weeks ended October 9, 2004, was $552.8
million compared to $536.8 million for the 40 weeks ended Oct. 4,
2003, an increase of $16.0 million, or 3.0%. The increase in total
revenue was the result of the increases in cemetery and insurance
revenue, compared to the corresponding period in 2003.

Funeral revenue was $366.8 million for the 40 weeks ended
October 9, 2004, which was down by $2.1 million compared to
$368.9 million for the 40 weeks ended October 4, 2003.  The
decrease in funeral revenue was primarily due to a decrease in
funeral services performed, which was partially offset by an
increase in average funeral revenue per service. For the 40 weeks
ended October 9, 2004, funeral services performed were 91,274,
down 3.1% compared to 94,209 funeral services performed in the 40
weeks ended October 4, 2003.

Average funeral revenue per service was $4,019 for the 40 weeks
ended October 9, 2004, a 2.7% increase per funeral service
performed compared to $3,915 for the 40 weeks ended October 4,
2003.

Funeral gross margin as a percentage of revenue decreased slightly
to 21.2% for the 40 weeks ended October 9, 2004, compared to 22.6%
of revenue for the 40 weeks ended October 4, 2003.  The decrease
in gross margin was primarily due to the decrease in funeral
revenue.

Cemetery revenue for the 40 weeks ended October 9, 2004, was
$123.9 million, which was up $2.2 million, or 1.7% compared to
$121.7 million for the 40 weeks ended October 4, 2003. The
increase in at-need service revenue during the 40 weeks ended
October 9, 2004, compared to the corresponding period in 2003, was
partially offset by a decrease in other revenue.

Cemetery gross margin as a percentage of revenue was 13.1% of
revenue for the 40 weeks ended October 9, 2004, compared to 12.5%
of revenue for the 40 weeks ended October 4, 2003. The increase in
the cemetery gross margin percentage was primarily as a result of
the increase in cemetery revenue, partially offset by increases in
advertising and promotion, facilities, and selling expenses.

The Company's insurance operations generated revenue of
$62.1 million for the 40 weeks ended October 9, 2004, compared to
revenue of $46.2 million for the 40 weeks ended October 4, 2003.
Insurance revenue increased primarily due to higher premium and
investment income.  Insurance premium revenue is up in 2004
primarily due to the impact of the Company's subsidiary, Rose
Hills, beginning to sell the Company's insurance products.
Insurance gross margin as a percentage of revenue increased to
4.8% for the 40 weeks ended October 9, 2004, compared to 2.9% for
the corresponding period in 2003, primarily as a result of the
revenue increase being at a rate higher than that of the cost
increase.

General and administrative expenses totaled $36.2 million for the
40 weeks ended October 9, 2004, while for the corresponding period
in 2003, general and administrative expenses totaled $32.4
million. During the 40 weeks ended October 4, 2003, general and
administrative expenses were reduced by a $5.0 million reversal of
accrued legal expense, which resulted from a settlement by the
Company of an automobile accident suit.  In addition, during the
40 weeks ended October 4, 2003, general and administrative
expenses were reduced by $3.1 million as a result of net interest
income received from a tax refund in connection with the audit of
the predecessor company's 1993 through 1998 federal income tax
returns.

For the 40 weeks ended October 9, 2004, interest expense was
$70.8 million, an increase of $5.8 million, or 8.8%, compared to
the 40 weeks ended October 4, 2003. The effect of lower effective
interest rates and debt repayments made by the Company during 2003
and the 40 weeks ended October 9, 2004, were more than offset by
costs associated with the Company's refinancing of long-term debt
that occurred during the 40 weeks ended October 9, 2004.

For the 40 weeks ended October 9, 2004, net income tax expense was
$1.6 million, compared to a net income tax benefit of $8.1 million
for the 40 weeks ended October 4, 2003. For the 40 weeks ended
October 9, 2004, the effective tax rate varied from the statutory
rate primarily because losses incurred in certain jurisdictions
did not offset the tax expenses in profitable jurisdictions. In
addition the effective tax rate varied from the statutory tax
rate, primarily because the Company was not able to fully realize
the income tax benefit associated with the cost of refinancing of
long-term debt. The income tax benefit for the 40 weeks ended
October 4, 2003 was primarily due to a $9.7 million favorable
settlement of a federal income tax audit.

Net loss from continuing operations was $12.9 million, or $0.32
basic and diluted loss per share for the 40 weeks ended October 9,
2004, compared to net income of $5.8 million, or $0.14 basic and
diluted earnings per share for the 40 weeks ended October 4, 2003.

Pre-need funeral and cemetery contracts written during the 40
weeks ended October 9, 2004, totaled $137.6 million and
$65.5 million, respectively. For the 40 weeks ended October 4,
2003, pre-need funeral and cemetery contracts written totaled
$126.4 million and $61.4 million, respectively. The Company is
continuing its program to increase pre-need sales. The Company
believes that pre-need sales are an important part of building the
foundation for future revenue and positive cash flow.

Headquartered in New York, New York, Winstar Communications, Inc.,
provides broadband services to business customers.  The Company
and its debtor-affiliates filed for chapter 11 protection on April
18, 2001 (Bankr. D. Del. Case Nos. 01-01430 through 01-01462).  
The Debtors obtained the Court's approval converting their case to
a chapter 7 liquidation proceeding in January 2002.  Christine C.
Shubert serves as the Debtors' chapter 7 trustee.  When the
Debtors filed for bankruptcy, they listed $4,975,437,068 in total
assets and $4,994,467,530 in total debts.  (Winstar Bankruptcy
News, Issue No. 61; Bankruptcy Creditors' Service, Inc.,

                          *********

Monday's edition of the TCR delivers a list of indicative prices
for bond issues that reportedly trade well below par.  Prices are
obtained by TCR editors from a variety of outside sources during
the prior week we think are reliable.  Those sources may not,
however, be complete or accurate.  The Monday Bond Pricing table
is compiled on the Friday prior to publication.  Prices reported
are not intended to reflect actual trades.  Prices for actual
trades are probably different.  Our objective is to share
information, not make markets in publicly traded securities.
Nothing in the TCR constitutes an offer or solicitation to buy or
sell any security of any kind.  It is likely that some entity
affiliated with a TCR editor holds some position in the issuers'
public debt and equity securities about which we report.

Each Tuesday edition of the TCR contains a list of companies with
insolvent balance sheets whose shares trade higher than $3 per
share in public markets.  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.

A list of Meetings, Conferences and Seminars appears in each
Wednesday's edition of the TCR. Submissions about insolvency-
related conferences are encouraged. Send announcements to
conferences@bankrupt.com.

Each Friday's edition of the TCR includes a review about a book of
interest to troubled company professionals. All titles are
available at your local bookstore or through Amazon.com. Go to
http://www.bankrupt.com/books/to order any title today.

Monthly Operating Reports are summarized in every Saturday edition
of the TCR.

For copies of court documents filed in the District of Delaware,
please contact Vito at Parcels, Inc., at 302-658-9911. For
bankruptcy documents filed in cases pending outside the District
of Delaware, contact Ken Troubh at Nationwide Research &
Consulting at 207/791-2852.
