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.

The full financial statements for the 15 months ended September 30, 2010 and the first quarter and the related Management's Discussion & Analysis are available on the System for Electronic Document Analysis and Retrieval (SEDAR) and can be accessed electronically at www.sedar.com.
