Notes to editors

Asia Strategic Holdings Ltd.

Asia Strategic Holdings Ltd. (LSE: ASIA) is an independent developer and operator of consumer businesses in emerging Asia. The Company's portfolio focuses on Education and Services with the view to expand within the broader consumer sector and is located in Vietnam and Myanmar, two of the fastest growing economies in the world over the last decade.

Education sector: the Company currently has exclusive development and franchising agreements with Wall Street English for up to ten English language centres across Myanmar. Two centres were opened in 2017, a third in August 2018, and a fourth in February 2020. As of March 2022, Wall Street English Myanmar served over 1,800 students.

In July 2020, the Company completed the acquisition of the Wall Street English business in Vietnam. Founded in 2013, the WSE Vietnam business operates through seven centres in Ho Chi Minh and Binh Dhuong serving ca. 2,500 students.

The Company also operates a joint venture with Auston Institute of Management to develop and operate the Auston College Myanmar. The private school opened in May 2018 offering diplomas in Engineering Technology, Mechanical Engineering and Networking, Information Systems, and Security. English language learning is also provided by the Company's nearby Wall Street English centre. In February 2020, the Company announced a partnership with Liverpool John Moores University to provide high quality engineering training programmes for young, working professionals in Myanmar, to be taught by Auston College Myanmar's teaching staff at its Junction Square complex in Yangon.

In August 2019 the Company launched its first private K-12 international school, the Yangon American International School ("Yangon American") in Yangon. In July 2021 Yangon American was recognised as an official International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme ("IB PYP") school by the International Baccalaureate Organization.

In April 2022, the Company entered into an exclusive franchising agreement with Kids&Us for the development of English language schools for children across Myanmar. The first two centres shall be opened in Yangon by June 2023.

Services sector: through its acquisition of EXERA, the Company offers security, risk management and secure logistics services, including cash-in-transit. Founded in 2013, EXERA employs approximately 1,500 well-trained and high-quality security officers making it one of the largest security services providers in Myanmar.

Furthermore, the Company provides hospitality services, managing over 282 beds across four boutique hotels in three core tourist locations in Myanmar, operating under the award winning Ostello Bello budget hospitality brand. The Company operates an asset light strategy, entering into long-term operating and management agreements with local hotel owners.

Vietnam and Myanmar were among the fastest growing economies in Asia in 2017-2020 (Source: Asian Development Bank). In 2022, Vietnam's annual GDP growth is expected to be 6.5% (Source: Asian Development Bank).

The Company is well positioned to provide investors early exposure to Vietnam's and Myanmar's strong economic fundamentals enhanced by ASEAN's wider growth prospects.
