Equity Income from PICH:

The equity income from PICH is $575,000 for the first quarter of fiscal 2011. The equity investment in PICH is based on the fair values of the assets and liabilities of PICH at the date of acquisition, November 14, 2008.

NET INCOME:

Outlook

The Company has chosen to change its strategic direction from being a firm focused on Canadian real estate to one that is focused on one of the fastest growing economies in the world - China.

Using the same formula as in the past, management believes the company will successfully transit into the Chinese marketplace and continue to grow through a well-defined internal growth and external acquisition program.  Management intends to seek out and take advantage of opportunities in the Asian market and will not restrict itself to the real estate or hospitality industries.
