Aberdeen International Reports Value of Investment Portfolio and Cash of $0.56 Per Share for Second Quarter Ending July 31, 2014

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (Marketwired) -- 08/21/14 -- ABERDEEN INTERNATIONAL INC. ("Aberdeen", or the "Company") (TSX: AAB) today announces that the value of its investment portfolio as at July 31, 2014, the end of its 2015 second fiscal quarter, was approximately $48.8 million including a cash balance of $0.3 million. This equates to a value of $0.56 per basic share outstanding based on Aberdeen's investment portfolio alone. This report of the portfolio value is not equivalent to the net asset value that has been previously reported by Aberdeen as it does not include assets and liabilities of the Company that are not treated as investments. Rather, this report refers only to the cash, equity investments (private and public), option-type investments (for example, warrants) and corporate debt/loans receivable of the Company.

The value of the investment portfolio increased in the value as at April 30, 2014 by approximately $4.6 million or 10.4 percent. Second quarter financial results are expected to be released on or before September 14, 2014, which include the Company's other assets and liabilities.
