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 transition 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
