VNL net asset value June 2013

12 July 2013

VinaLand Limited (the "Company" or "VNL")

Net Asset Value

The Company announces that, at its close of business on 30 June 2013, its unaudited net asset value (NAV) was USD466.5 million or USD0.97 per share. This represents a 5.8 percent decline from a net asset value per share of USD1.03 from its close of business on 31 March 2013.  The reduction in NAV is primarily due to downward project revaluations as at 30 June 2013, fund operating expenses and adjustments for deferred taxation.  Regarding VNL’s portfolio, nine projects were appraised by international valuation consultants, while a further eight projects were also externally re-appraised as part of the biannual update for the interim period. The outcome was that one project valuation remained the same; one project was adjusted upward while the majority of the project valuations were adjusted downward. This was primarily due to the continued softening in the real estate market resulting in very low residential sales volume and transactions across the country coupled with illiquidity and high interest rates during the period.
