SWA REIT and Investments Limited Announces Date for Commencement of Trading

    HONG KONG, Feb. 21 /CNW/ -- SWA REIT and Investments Limited ("SWA"),
which was spun out of KHD Humboldt Wedag International Limited (NYSE:   KHD)
("KHD"), today announced that its Austrian Depository Certificates ("ADCs")
will be quoted for trading on the Vienna Stock Exchange under ticker symbol
SWA on March 5, 2008.  Stock quotes will be in Euros and be readily available
on the Internet, such as Google, MSN and Yahoo as well as all professional
quote systems, as SWA.VI.  Brokerage firms will be able to execute trades in
the ADCs.
    The mandate of SWA is to produce an above average return to shareholders
by making investments in real property and operating companies.
    SWA was created by KHD through a pro rata distribution to its
shareholders.  Shares were distributed as ADCs on a 1-for-1 basis to holders
of record as of September 25, 2007.  The distribution of SWA to KHD
shareholders was a return of capital; as such U.S. tax basis in the ADCs that
they receive would equal the fair market value of the shares on the date of
distribution, September 30, 2007, which was US$1.84 per share.
    The shares of SWA are on deposit with Oesterreichische Kontrollbank AG
("OeKB") and ADCs have been issued on behalf of SWA by OeKB.  OeKB is
Austria's central provider of financial services and information to capital
markets including electronic clearing and settlement services.  The ADCs will
be traded, settled and transferable in electronic form, no certificates will
be issued.
    If you were a KHD shareholder as of the record date of the distribution,
the ADCs should be in your account.  If the ADCs are not in your account,
please contact or have your broker contact:
