China Growth Equity Investment Ltd. (Nasdaq: CGEI; CGEIU; CGEIW), or CGEI, is
a SPAC, also known as a blank-check company incorporated as a Cayman

"expected," "proposed," "contemplated," "plan," "project," "intend,"
"anticipate," "believe," "estimate," "predict," "potential," "continue," and

expectations with respect to the combined company's plans, objectives,
expectations and intentions with respect to future operations; approval and
adoption of business combination by the requisite number of shareholders; and
the timing of the completion of the proposed business combination. All
forward-looking statements involve significant risks and uncertainties that
could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or
implied in the forward-looking statements, many of which are generally outside
the control of CGEI's and are difficult to predict. Examples of such risks and
uncertainties include, but are not limited to: (i) the failure of the business
combination to close for any reason; (ii) general business and economic
conditions; (iii) the performance of financial markets; (iv) risks relating to
the consummation of the contemplated business combination, including the risk
that required shareholder approval and regulatory agencies might not be
obtained in a timely manner or at all or that other closing conditions are not
satisfied; (v) the impact of the business combination on the markets for the
combined company's products and services; (vi) the employees of CGEI, CDGC and
Pingtan Fishing not being combined and integrated successfully; (vii)
operating costs and business disruption following the business combination,
including adverse effects on employee retention and on CGEI's, CDGC's and
Pingtan Fishing's business relationships with third parties; (viii) the
inability of the combined company following the closing of the business
combination to meet NASDAQ's listing requirements and the failure of the
combined company's securities to be listed or continue to be listed on NASDAQ;
(ix) the amount of cash available to the combined company following the
business combination being insufficient to allow CGEI, CDGC, Pingtan Fishing
or the combined company to achieve their business goals; and (xi) the future
performance of the combined company following the closing of the business
combination. Additional factors that could cause actual results to differ
materially from those expressed or implied in the forward-looking statements

subsequently filed quarterly reports on Form 10-Q and current reports on Form
8-K filed by CGEI with the SEC, as well as the proxy statement when it becomes

its views and expectations to change. CGEI assumes no obligation, and they
specifically disclaim any intention or obligation, to update any
