About the Halter USX China Index 
The Index, created by the Halter Financial Group and calculated
and distributed by the Amex, is comprised of companies whose common
stock is publicly traded in the United States and the majority of
whose business is conducted within the People's Republic of China. The
Halter USX China Index was created in response to the unique economic
opportunities taking place in China, as well as the current dynamics
in the United States capital markets. While there is strong demand for
Chinese equity, U.S. investors still seek and prefer the transparency
offered with a U.S. listing. For a company to be included in the
Halter USX China Index it must conduct a majority of its business in
China, maintain an average market cap of over $50 million for the
preceding 40 trading days, trade on the NYSE, Amex or NASDAQ and be
approved by USX Selection Committee. Investors can buy the Index by
investing in an exchange traded fund (ETF), the PowerShares Golden
Dragon Halter USX China Portfolio (AMEX:PGJ). For more information
