On 23 January 2009, Crocodile Group entered into two agreements for the construction of a warehouse and a senior staff quarters respectively.

The transaction constitutes a discloseable transaction for the Company and is subject to the disclosure requirements under Chapter 14 of the Listing Rules.

SCOPE OF WORK UNDER THE AGREEMENTS
Pursuant to the Agreements, CG (Zhong Shan) has employed the Contractor to construct
(a) a warehouse with estimated gross floor area of 7,724 square metres and
(b) a senior staff quarters with estimated gross floor area of 2,445 square metres situated in Chong Bian Village of Sha Xi Town in Zhong Shan City, Guangdong Province, the PRC.

Construction shall commence in February 2009 with completion scheduled for April 2011.

CONSIDERATION
The contract sum for construction of the warehouse will be approximately RMB11,762,576 (approximately HK$13,409,337) and that of the senior staff quarters will be approximately RMB5,037,424 (approximately HK$5,742,663). The contracts have been awarded following an open tender.

Pursuant to the Agreements, the total contract sum will be paid by instalments in accordance with progress in construction work:
(1) a first payment in an amount equivalent to 30% of the total contract sum has been paid on the signing of the Agreements;

(2) 5 subsequent payments of 10% each of the total contract sum are to be made during 30 June and 31 December 2009, 30 June, 30 September and 31 December 2010 or completion of the predetermined proportion of construction work, whichever is the later;

(3) a last payment of 15% of the total contract sum is to be made on 30 April 2011 or completion of the contracted construction work, whichever is the later; and

(4) the remaining 5% of the total contract sum shall be held as retention money and will be paid in accordance with normal practices of the construction industry in Zhong Shan.
The Group will settle the consideration in cash through internal resources.

REASONS FOR ENTERING INTO AND BENEFITS OF THE TRANSACTION
Having its own warehouse on completion of the construction work will reduce rental expenses currently payable by the Group for the warehousing facilities.

The availability of senior staff quarters in Zhong Shan will also help reduce staff accommodation expenses of the Group.

The Directors consider that the construction of the warehouse and senior staff quarters is in the best interests of the Shareholders and of the Company as a whole.

PRINCIPAL BUSINESS ACTIVITIES
The principal activities of the Group are the manufacture and sale of garments and property investment.

The principal activity of the Contractor is carrying out construction work in the PRC.

LISTING RULES IMPLICATION
As the applicable percentage ratios under the Listing Rules of the two agreements exceed 5% but are less than 25%, the construction of the warehouse and senior staff quarters constitutes a discloseable transaction for the Company under Chapter 14 of the Listing Rules.
