The company's Non-GAAP cash and cash equivalents net of total debt as of Q2 2005 was approximately US$221 million.

CDC's 81% owned subsidiary, China.com Inc, recently announced its own US$13 million stock repurchase plan.

The timing of stock repurchases and the exact number of shares of common stock to be purchased will depend upon prevailing market conditions and other factors as well as subject to applicable regulations. Repurchases under this program will be made using the company's own cash resources and may be commenced or suspended at any time or from time-to-time at management's discretion without prior notice.
