JAKARTA, Oct 11 (Reuters) - Bumi Resources sees aproposal to part ways with London-listed coal conglomerate BumiPlc as a positive development for both sides, acompany director said on Thursday.

"The development appears positive and a likely all roundwin-win," said Bumi Resources director and corporate secretaryDileep Srivastava.

"We are focused on operational excellence: to reach 100million tons production in 2014, deleverage and cut interestcharges, look to monetise assets expeditiously at fair pricesand thereby unlock our intrinsic value - without distractions,"he said.
