Notice of investor conference call

VinaCapital Group, the leading asset management and real estate development firm focused on Vietnam, announces that it will hold a conference call to update investors in its AIM-traded funds on 15 February 2011 at 19:00 Hong Kong time.

VinaCapital CEO Don Lam and fund managing directors Andy Ho, David Henry and Tony Hsun will update investors on the current economic and investment climate in Vietnam, and on the recent performance of the three VinaCapital-managed AIM-traded funds (VOF, VNL and VNI). A Q&A session will follow the fund updates.

Vietnam in 2010 saw GDP growth of 6.8 percent and stable domestic demand that helped corporate earnings growth remain strong at 12-15 percent on average for blue chip companies. Valuations continue to be attractive, with PE 2010 at 10.6x, as the stock market has been negatively impacted by low investor confidence related to inflation concerns and pressure on the currency.

Don Lam, VinaCapital CEO, said: “Vietnam has a new political administration in place following the conclusion of the Communist Party Congress in January 2011. This paves the way for new policies to address Vietnam’s economic challenges and improve investor sentiment.

“Our recent investment activity includes one of Vietnam’s largest-ever private equity transactions – the sale of a stake in Hanoi Liquor JSC to Diageo plc for over USD50 million. We believe this deal is a strong indicator of Vietnam’s attractiveness to multinational firms and other long-term investors, which has positive implications for all our investment funds.”
