The Stock Exchange of Thailand

Natural Park Public Company Limited (the “Company”) has recently submitted the audited financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2011 to the Stock Exchange of Thailand with a view to share the information with general investors. The key indicators and changes regarding the operating performance and financial status are as follows:

Operating Performance of the Company
According to the operating performance for the year ended 31 December 2011, the Company had total revenue of Baht 516.57 million, the total expenses of Baht 624.94 million and the loss of owner of the parent of Baht 108.31 million. Therefore, for the year 2011 the Company had increased loss of Baht 347.89 million, compared over the same period of year 2010.

Compared over the same period of year 2011, in spite of the recognition of profit from settlement of case with a financial institution of Baht 208.06 million and the recognition of profit on disposal of investment of Baht 193.12 million, the Company had more loss from investments in associates amounting to Baht 52.89 million and more expenses on management relating to employees’ benefits (Early Retirement) which increased by Baht 60.06 million.
