Portfolio acquisition

The Board of Alpha Returns, the AIM traded investing company focusing on investments in high-growth Asian economies, is pleased to announce that it has, via its wholly owned subsidiary Shidu international Ltd, contracted to acquire for settlement on 20 November a portfolio of five investment holdings quoted on the Hong Kong stock exchange for a total cost of HK$618,000 (£49,400) with individual investments ranging between approximately HK$118,000 and HK$128,000.

The investee companies are Agile Property, China Mobile, Evergrande, Greatwall Motor and Tencent Holdings which are all profitable and variously involved in telecommunications, property development and the manufacture and sale of pick-up tracks and sports utility vehicles predominantly in the People's Republic of China and Hong Kong SAR.

Commenting on the investments, Christopher Neo, executive director, said: "We believe our investment in these Hong Kong quoted stocks diversifies our portfolio risk and gives us further exposure to companies operating in high-growth Asian economies in line with our investing policy".
