HALF YEAR FINANCIAL OVERVIEW 2001

Achieva reports lower turnover for 1H FY 2001 –
Electronics slowdown and business consolidation pulls Group into the red
16 August 2002, Singapore — Achieva Limited (“Achieva”), one of Asia Pacific’s top knowledge-based, value-added distributors and solutions providers focusing on electronics and IT-related products, today announced that its Group turnover (unaudited) fell by 6% from about $244.8 million in the first half of FY2001 to $230 million for the first six months ended 30 June 2002. The lower turnover is due to the slowdown of markets in Vietnam, China and Malaysia.

At half-time, the Group registered an operating loss before interest and tax of $3.4 million compared to an operating profit before interest and tax of $6.2 million for the corresponding period last year.

The Group’s weak financial performance was attributable to a few key factors:

– Losses of $2.9 million incurred by the PC peripherals sub-group which had to reduce margins to
maintain market share;

– Reduced margins in the electronic components sub-group;

– One-time write-off in investments relating to Nano Storage Pte Ltd of $1.9 million;

– Start-up investments for expanding its operations into North Asia especially in the People’s Republic of China (PRC); and

– Unrealised translation loss due to weakness in the US$

Due to funding difficulties faced by Nanochip, Inc., Achieva took a decision to voluntarily liquidate Nano Storage so as to cut losses. In the event of a successful funding exercise by Nanochip, Inc., the Group may be able to recover $965,000 as per the terms of the convertible notes issued by Nanochip, Inc.

– research and development (R&D) investments in the Strategic Technologies group.
