AUDITED RESULTS FOR THE FINANCIAL YEAR ENDED 28 FEBRUARY 2018

Chairman’s Statement

The Board is pleased to report the audited results of the Company for the Financial Year from 1 March 2017 to 28 February 2018. The accounts contain an audit opinion which is qualified as the auditors were not able to obtain supporting evidence regarding the ownership of the Group’s investment in Ray Alliance and also in respect of the possible effects of the Group’s investment in Ray Alliance not having been assessed for impairment. The audited accounts will shortly be available on the NEX website at https://www.nexexchange.com/member?securityid=1191336, or via the Company’s website, www.asiawealthgroup.com.

The Company reports a much improved consolidated profit of US$146,845 (2017: (US$110,395)).

The Company has worked hard to restore its profitability after having identified several new areas of business expansion opportunities in South East Asia and with a few groups in North America and in Europe. The Company’s main source of income was through Meyer Asset Management Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Company.

The Board remains focused on further acquisitions and partnerships in Europe and the Americas as well as the south-east Asian region. The Board has a cash surplus to seek further acquisitions and is currently looking at businesses in the Fintech space.

I would again like to thank the Company’s staff for their hard work throughout the year and shareholders for their support and we look forward to taking advantage of the opportunities which we expect to encounter in the forthcoming year.

The Directors do not recommend the payment of a dividend for the year ended 28 February 2018.
