TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - May 1, 2013) - ABERDEEN INTERNATIONAL INC. ("Aberdeen", or the "Company") (News - Market indicators) is pleased to announce that it has released its financial results for the year ended January 31, 2013. For more information please see the Company's Annual Financial Statements and Management's Discussion and Analysis ("MD&A") posted on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

As at January 31, 2013, Aberdeen's shareholders' equity, or net asset value (the "NAV"), was $65.5 million, or $0.76 per share. Aberdeen's shareholders' equity decreased by $8.4 million from $73.9 million at the end of Q3 2013. The decrease in shareholders' equity was largely due to the performance of Aberdeen's equity investment portfolio in the fourth quarter, which decreased $5.4 million or 7.1% to $69.9 million. In the fourth quarter of 2013, the stock market performance for small capitalization mining and resource stocks continued to be weak. On a year-over-year basis, Aberdeen's shareholders' equity decreased by $30.6 million. Note that the reference to shareholders' equity is similar to the Company's previous references to net asset value (or "NAV").
