(October 7, 2009 - Hong Kong) China Water Affairs Group Limited (“China Water Affairs” or the “Company”, together with its subsidiaries collectively referred to as the “Group”; stock code: 00855.HK), one of the largest integrated water services operators in China, announced that after a preliminary review of the management accounts of the Group, the Board expected that the unaudited interim results of the Group for the six months ended September 30, 2009 will record a profit. The Group made a loss of approximately HK$172 million for the corresponding period in 2008.
Based on the information currently available, the Board believes that such profit would be mainly attributable to (i) the stable growth of the Group’s core businesses and (ii) a net unrealized gain on the fair value changes on the financial assets consisting mainly of listed equity investments and convertible bonds as compared to a significant net unrealized loss which adversely affected the corresponding interim results of the Group last year.
