(CSE:AYD), is pleased to announce that through its US real estate limited partnership, AIP USA Limited Partnership I it has signed conditional Letters of Intent (LOI) with two vendors to purchase a portion of their portfolios of single family homes in Metro Detroit.

All targeted properties have been renovated and are currently tenanted and meet the minimum cash flow and return on investment ("ROI") requirements mandated by the AIP General Partner.

Aydon is poised to take part in this historical comeback opportunity."

About Detroit

Recent investment in Detroit has validated Aydon's business model. Market momentum in Detroit's core is real and palpable and provides a strong foundation for future growth.

Detroit is ranked among America's top ten downtowns and leads the housing market rebound with home prices increasing by 23.3 percent annually. The people of Detroit are helping revitalize their city; but there are also investors who see potential future gains.

Bruce Katz of the Brookings Institution wrote in an article concerning the growth strategy for Detroit: "It is embracing industries previously foreign to its economy, like finance and health care. Many investors have seen return on investment exceeding 17 percent."

No person has put more capital into Detroit, or displayed more confidence in the city's future, than Dan Gilbert, founder of mortgage provider Quicken Loans. He has invested well over $1 billion in downtown Detroit and bought some 3 million square feet of real estate. He has moved his 7,600 employees downtown and has brought 80 startups to the buildings he already owns. Gilbert publicly announced after Detroit filed for Chapter 9 bankruptcy that the city will "thrive again".
