          entities; and

DETAILS OF THE PROPOSED ACQUISITIONS ARE SET OUT BELOW:-

Background

The Company has agreed to acquire six residential properties located in a new
residential development "Sirena Olympia" in Kato Paphos, Cyprus. The
development was completed in late October 2005.

At the commencement of the development project in April 2004, the developer,
Costas Gavrielides & Sons Limited, contracted to sell 10 properties "off-plan"
to Camelot Reality Limited ("Camelot"). Camelot has agreed to sell 6 of the 10
properties (at the original purchase price) to the Company.

Conditions

The contract is subject to the approval of the Company's Shareholders, which is
to be sought at the Extraordinary General Meeting.

Terms

Subject to shareholder approval, the Company will acquire 6 of the 10
properties from Camelot for a total price, including stamp duty and local legal
fees, of CY£489,427 (approximately £590,000).

Consideration

The consideration of CY£489,427 for the Acquisitions is payable in cash upon
receipt of Shareholders approval for the Acquisitions.

Legal Title

The system for registering a new property purchaser with the Cyprus Land
Registry takes a total of three years. Accordingly, rather than the Company
exchanging contracts with Camelot directly, Camelot has agreed to cancel the
contracts originally entered into between itself and the developer and the
Company has entered into new contracts with the developer instead.

Description of the properties

Each of the 6 properties has 2 bedrooms. The covered area of the apartments is
between 85 sq. meters to 100 sq. meters. The properties are situated in an
elevated position with cliffs to the rear.

The properties are situated an approximate 15 minutes walk from Paphos and an
approximate 10 minutes walk from the centre of Kato, Paphos.

The closest airport to the properties is Paphos Airport which is an approximate
15 minute drive away. There is a harbour approximately 5 minutes drive from the
properties.
