2 2 This powerpoint contains identifying important factors that could cause actual results to differ from the projected results. All statements, other than statements of historical fact, including statements regarding industry prospects and future results of operations or financial position, made in this powerpoint are forward looking. Words such as anticipates, believes, expects, future and intends and similar expressions are intended to identify forward- looking statements. These forward-looking statements include, without limitation, statements relating to: our future performance, our expansion efforts, demand for our products; the state of economic conditions and our markets; currency and exchange rate fluctuations; and our ability to meet our liquidity requirements. These forward-looking statements are based on assumptions and analyses made by us in light of our experience and perception of historical trends, current conditions and expected future developments, as well as other factors we believe to be appropriate in particular circumstances. However, whether actual results and developments will meet our expectations and predictions depend on a number of known and unknown risks and uncertainties and other factors, any or all of which could cause actual results, performance or achievements to differ materially from our expectations, whether expressed or implied by such forward-looking statements (which may relate to, among other things, the Companys sales, costs and expenses, income, inventory performance, and receivables). Primarily engaged in the processing and trading of pearls and pearl jewelry products, and in real estate investment, our ability to achieve our objectives and expectations are derived at least in part from assumptions regarding economic conditions, consumer tastes, and developments in our competitive environment. The following assumptions, among others, could materially affect the likelihood that we will achieve our objectives and expectations communicated through these forward-looking statements: (i) that low or negative growth in the economies or the financial markets of our customers, particularly in the United States and in Europe, will not occur and reduce discretionary spending on goods that might be perceived as luxuries; (ii) that the Hong Kong dollar will remain pegged to the U.S. dollar at US$1 to RMB$7.8; (iii) that customers choice of pearls vis-à-vis other precious stones and metals will not change adversely; (iv) that we will continue to obtain a stable supply of pearls in the quantities, of the quality and on terms we require; (v) that there will not be a substantial adverse change in the exchange relationship between the Renminbi and the Hong Kong dollar or U.S. dollar; (vi) that there will not be a substantial increase in the tax burdens of our subsidiaries operating in the PRC; (vii) that there will not be a substantial change in climate and environmental conditions at the source regions of pearls that could have a material adverse effect on the supply and pricing of pearls; and (viii) that there will not be a substantial adverse change in the real estate market conditions in the PRC and in Hong Kong. The following discussion of our results of operation, and liquidity and capital resources should be read in conjunction with the financial statements and the notes thereto included elsewhere in this powerpoint and this powerpoint, which contains a further description of risks and uncertainties related to forward-looking statements, as well as other aspects of our business. Readers are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date of this powerpoint. We will not publicly release any revisions to these forward-looking statements after the date hereof. Readers are urged, however, to review the factors set forth in periodic reports that we file from time to time with the Securities and Exchange Commission. Disclaimer
