Vietnam-Based Cavico Corporation Makes History as First US Traded Vietnamese Public Company

Infrastructure Construction and Engineering Company Lists Its Shares on the US Over the Counter Market

LOS ANGELES, CA and HANOI, VIETNAM -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 22, 2006 -- Cavico Corporation (PINKSHEETS: CVCP), a Vietnamese company working in the fields of infrastructure development, including the construction of hydropower facilities, dams, bridges, roads and urban buildings throughout Vietnam and the Pacific Rim, began trading on the US Over the Counter market in May. Cavico is the first Vietnam-based company to list its stock in the US.

"This is truly a historic event for Cavico and for Vietnam," stated Bui Quang Ha, Chief Executive Officer of Cavico. "We are excited about the tremendous growth opportunities for Cavico in the construction of critical infrastructure in Vietnam and elsewhere throughout the Asia Pacific region."

Cavico has begun the process of auditing the company's financials to comply with US accounting standards in preparation for applying to list its stock on a senior US exchange in the future. "Our initial listing on the Pink Sheets will give us time to familiarize ourselves with the US markets and gain a solid understanding of the capital system here." He added, "We believe we have the revenues and asset base necessary for a listing on a senior exchange in the US. The company and its advisors are working on a growth strategy that will help us reach this goal quickly, while paying meticulous attention to the details that will expedite the transition."

Cavico has emerged as a major beneficiary of Vietnam's infrastructure construction boom. The company's recent stock listing in the US is a key element in the company's strategy to access international capital markets in support of its rapid growth. The company has received initial commitments for immediate and future funding from a US institutional investor.
