**** Redwood Capital: A Bridge Between China and U.S.
S3 Investment Company's subsidiary, Redwood Capital (acquired in November of 2004), bridges the gap between Chinese capital needs and American public markets. The gap exists because Chinese companies are virtually excluded from the U.S. (all international) markets for two primary reasons: 1) the Chinese government makes it virtually impossible for Chinese companies to raise capital outside of China through regulation and 2) typical management of Chinese companies has no experience with western securities markets, SEC compliance, investment banking or investor relations. Redwood Capital is providing these missing components by utilizing innovation and experience to give their Chinese clients access to western capital.
On July 26, 2006, Redwood announced that Charlie Wu has been appointed to the position of managing director, Li Xiaotao as investment director, Frank Zheng as executive officer and Annie Lian as administration manager.
Mr. Wu has served in positions ranging from service manager to general manager for foreign companies operating in China. He has extensive knowledge of company operations and is experienced in corporate management.
Li Xiaotao has experience in investment banking with an emphasis in economics, finance and management. His primary responsibility will be to source highly qualified clients for Redwood Capital.
Frank Zheng is a former chief financial officer of several companies and has both theoretical knowledge and practical experience in finance and law. He is familiar with domestic and overseas financial regulations, investment banking operations, such as mergers and acquisitions, and reconstruction, as well as financial and investment consultation. Mr. Zheng will analyze financial statements and draft feasible reports on clients for Redwood Capital and work to ensure that the client company has world-class financial management leading up to and following its planned IPO.
Annie Lian is an attorney whose responsibilities at Redwood Capital will include legal work, company professional procedures, daily operations, and staff support.
Redwood Capital currently holds 90,722 shares of Fushi Int'l, Inc. as an investment:
