Change of a Director's Deemed Shareholding Interest


The board of directors of Asian Growth Properties Limited (the "Company") (AIM Stock Code: AGP), the Hong Kong based China property development and investment company, announces that the Company has today received notification from Mr. Lu Wing Chi ("Mr. Lu"), an executive director of the Company of the change of his deemed interest in the ordinary shares of US$0.05 each in the Company ("Shares") as follows:


(1)   Mr. Lu and the persons connected with him are presently deemed to be beneficially interested in 261,511,282 Shares which represent about 29.50% of the existing issued share capital of the Company resulting primarily from Mr. Lu's exercise of his share option in whole to subscribe for the shares in S E A Holdings Limited ("SEA") on 14th May, 2010;


(2)   SEA is beneficially entitled to, in aggregate, about 97.17% of the existing issued share capital of the Company;


(3)   Mr. Lu is deemed interested in the Shares by virtue of (i) his 0.97% direct shareholding interest in SEA; (ii) his 32.61% direct shareholding interest in JCS Limited ("JCS"), and (iii) his 30% direct shareholding interest in NLI.  JCS is interested in 63.58% of the issued shares in NLI; and


(4)   Immediately before Mr. Lu exercising his share option on 14th May, 2010, NLI had an interest of about 59.36% in the issued share capital of SEA.  On 14th May, 2010, amongst other option holders, Mr. Lu exercised his subscription right to subscribe for 6,569,285 SEA shares and accordingly such new SEA shares, representing approximately 0.97% of the enlarged issued share capital of SEA, were issued to Mr. Lu. Immediately thereafter, NLI's equity interest in SEA was diluted to about 57.94%.  As a result, Mr. Lu is deemed to have increased his beneficial shareholding interest to, in aggregate, 261,511,282 Shares (representing approximately 29.50% of the existing issued share capital of the Company).
