27 November 2009 On behalf of: Aseana Properties Limited ("Aseana" or "the Company") Aseana Properties Limited - Sale of Tower 2 at KL Sentral development - Refund of deposit for Wall Street Project - Net Asset Value Aseana Properties Limited (LSE: ASPL), a leading Asian property developer investing in Malaysia and Vietnam listed on the Official List of the London Stock Exchange, is pleased to announce that the project company in respect of the KL Sentral development in Kuala Lumpur, in which it owns a 40 per cent. stake, has successfully sold Tower 2 to an international real estate fund. The sale price achieved is RM458.4 million and is subject to certain deferred payment terms and other conditions. Commenting on the development, Dato' Mohammed Azlan bin Hashim, Chairman of Aseana Properties Limited, said: "We are extremely pleased that we have successfully pre-sold Tower 2 (with 500,000sf floor area) despite a challenging economic environment. This is testament to the hard work that has gone into this project, and the high quality of the development. The sale of the Tower at this time ensures that the funding is in place to complete the project." Aseana is also pleased to announce that it has been successful in retrieving the deposit (plus interest) relating to the Wall Street project from the People's Committee of District 1, Ho Chi Minh. As the City authorities have yet to announce the final planning and procurement guidelines for the site, the Company is now in the process of exiting the joint venture agreement with a view to terminating the project. The total amount refunded is $5.3 million which accounts for an unrealised exchange loss from Vietnamese Dong to US Dollars. The Company has, however, allocated the funds to existing projects in Vietnam and therefore does not intend to realise the loss. The Company further announces that, as stated in the Company's Quarterly Investor Update, the Company's NAV per Share and RNAV per Share as at 30 September 2009 are US$0.875 and US$1.032 respectively based on the total issued share capital of the Company and US$0.972 and US$1.146 respectively based on the issued share capital excluding treasury shares.

Schroder's Property Securities fund Manager view on relative outlook on Asian Property Securities ........... throughout Asia, and the reason for that is twofold. One is they have great growth prospects long-term and even in the short term but more importantly they are virtually unlevered, ungeared. And if we look at their average gearing, weighted average gearing for our Asian portfolio, it's in the 20 to 25% range, whereas if we compare that with the UK market it's more in the 55 to 65% range. So we had companies that didn't have to rely on banks, in fact they were net lenders to the financial community, as are the consumers in Asia, so we really played the anti-leverage game and the pro-growth game in the first part of this crisis really

Highlights from this month's Vinacapital report http://www.vinacapital.com/news.php?id=299 "The rapid sales reservations recorded in July and August shows the current strength of Vietnam's residential real estate market," says David Henry, Managing Director of VinaCapital Real Estate Ltd. "Demand is particularly high in the mid-range market addressing Vietnam's rising middle class. Vietnam's GDP growth rate of over four percent in 2009 is due to the strength of its domestic economy, and this is driving the organic growth of the local real estate market.

Had a nice little run. Very much below the radar, very few seem interested although discount to NAV remains massive. Perhaps some news on further sales at Seni MK would help.

Could benefit our fund; VinaCapital Vietnam Opportunity Fund Limited Statement of intent to invest in closed-end funds VinaCapital Vietnam Opportunity Fund Limited ("VOF" or "the Company"), an AIM-traded investment company established to target key growth segments within Vietnam's emerging market, announces its intention to invest in shares of other Vietnam-focused closed-end funds trading at substantial discounts. The Board of Directors of the Company ("the Directors") have elected, subject to market conditions and following certain procedures, to allow VOF to invest up to 10 percent of its Net Asset Value ("NAV") at the time of purchase in shares of other closed-end Vietnam funds. This includes VinaLand Limited ("VNL"), an AIM-traded closed-end fund also managed by VinaCapital Investment Management Limited ("VinaCapital" or "the Investment Manager") with a primary focus on real estate investment. Investment in VinaLand / Fee rebate Real estate investment has been a key strategy for VOF since its inception. After VinaLand was established in March 2006, VOF has selectively co-invested alongside VinaLand in its direct real estate investments. However, over the past 6 months VNL shares have traded at discounts of up to 80%. In light of this substantial discount, the Board has elected to allow VOF to make its real estate investments indirectly through VNL shares. The Investment Manager will rebate to VOF the management fees corresponding to the portion of VOF's holding in VNL shares. As described in VNL's admission document, VOF has the right of first refusal to take up to a 25 percent direct stake in newly acquired VNL assets. VOF will temporarily suspend this right during such periods of VOF investment in VNL shares until further notice. As at the date of this announcement, the Company held 14,749,044 shares in VNL, representing a 2.95 percent equity stake in VNL and 1.49 percent of the Company's NAV. In respect of any VOF investment in other funds managed by VinaCapital, the Directors have instituted the following protocols. VOF will enter into fixed arrangements with an independent broker to specifically purchase on its behalf and within certain pre-set parameters, ordinary shares of the other fund or funds managed by VinaCapital. VOF intends to acquire and hold shares in other funds managed by VinaCapital via such arrangements on a rolling basis. Furthermore, only the Independent Directors of the VOF Board shall be authorised to provide instructions to the third party broker and to vote on behalf of VOF at any shareholder meetings of the other funds managed by VinaCapital. In the event that VOF invests in listed closed-end investment funds not managed by VinaCapital, the above protocols will not apply, and the Investment Manager shall exercise its judgment on behalf of the Company's shareholders within itsstandard trading authorities.

if osprie have sold all of their holding then that should clear the way for the stock to rise. They have been selling in dribs and drabs over the last couple of months so there was no need for any buyers to chase the price as they always knew there was a supply of stock. Now 24m of supply has disappeared I doubt there will be any other sellers around. This is on an 80% discount to NAV and has loads of cash on its balance sheet. Should see a decent run from here.
