Compliments of the season!!!

As always it is a pleasure to see your mail, as it gives us an opportunity to review our efforts.

Since my last update i.e. a month ago to you, I take pleasure in informing you that substantial work has been done on the phase 3 projects. Work is on in full swing on the structure for RB 1 & 2. Pile testing have commenced on 3, 4, & 5. Normally there is 3 months testing period. Once this is done we

will have the structure work started on RB3 and the podium on 4&5. Apart from this more than 200 type A town houses in phase3 are almost in the finishing stage (70%). Our major man power is presently focused on the Type A Town houses construction. Infact, we are now considering placement of cameras on the site, to enable our customers to view the ongoing construction.

However, we are still expecting the completion of the whole phase3 including RB6 to be between end of 2009 & 4th quarter of 2010.

Regarding deferment of payment, we regret to inform you that we are currently unable to offer any scheme of payment, as we need to pay our contractors as the work is on in full swing.

While at this, I would like to take this opportunity to introduce our new General Manager Mr. Romain Felber, who has taken over from Mr. Fredric w.e.f. December 08 as the GM. All I can do at this point is to send your request for deferment of payment to him for consideration.

Should you require any further information, do let us know.

Thanks & Best Regards
