The Asia Tigers Fund, Inc. Announces Commencement Date of Semi-Annual Repurchase Offer

PHILADELPHIA, Dec. 21, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Asia Tigers Fund, Inc. (NYSE: GRR; the "Fund") announced today that the Fund's semi-annual repurchase offer will commence today and terminate on January 11, 2013.  In April 2002, stockholders of the Fund voted to adopt an interval fund structure, pursuant to which the Fund conducts periodic repurchase offers for between 5% and 25% of the Fund's outstanding common stock.  Under the Fund's original policy, the Fund conducted quarterly repurchase offers.  In February 2007, stockholders of the Fund voted to amend the policy to provide that the Fund will conduct repurchase offers on a semi-annual, rather than on a quarterly, basis.  Accordingly, the Fund's Board of Directors (the "Board") authorized the Fund's repurchase offer for this semi-annual period of up to 5% of its outstanding common stock.  The determination of 5% was based on consideration of several factors, including current economic and market environments, market pricing, market volatility, the Fund's discount, and tax consequences to the Fund and its stockholders.

The details of the Fund's repurchase offer are as follows:

Purpose of the Repurchase Offer – The repurchase offer is intended to provide Fund stockholders who wish to have their shares repurchased based on net asset value ("NAV") with the opportunity to have at least a portion of such shares repurchased.

What to Expect – The repurchase offer will begin on December 21, 2012, and will end on January 11, 2013.  Materials will be sent to stockholders of record as of December 14, 2012, in conjunction with the start of the repurchase offer on December 21, 2012.

Price – The repurchase price of the shares will be their NAV per share at the close of regular trading on the New York Stock Exchange ("NYSE") on January 18, 2013.  The shares tendered in the repurchase offer will be subject to a repurchase fee of 2% of NAV for expenses directly related to the repurchase offer.

Number of Shares – If more than 5% of the Fund's outstanding common stock is tendered, the Fund will either (1) repurchase all of the additional shares tendered, if the additional shares do not exceed 2% of the Fund's outstanding common stock, or (2) purchase 5% of the Fund's outstanding common stock on a pro-rata basis.

Deadline – The deadline for participating in the repurchase offer is 5:00 p.m. Eastern Standard Time on January 11, 2013.  The NAV of the shares may fluctuate between the deadline and January 18, 2013, the pricing date of the repurchase offer.  The payment date for the repurchase offer is on or before January 25, 2013.

The Fund's common stock has at times traded at a premium to the Fund's NAV per share.  It may not be in a stockholder's interest to tender shares in connection with this repurchase offer if the Fund's common stock is trading at a premium.  The market price of the Fund's common stock can and does fluctuate.  Accordingly, on January 18, 2013, the pricing date for this repurchase offer, the market price of the Fund's common stock may be above or below the Fund's NAV per share.

To obtain the daily NAV or the NYSE closing price of the Fund's common stock, or for questions concerning the repurchase offer or for requests for the Fund's repurchase offer materials, stockholders should contact Georgeson Inc. ("Georgeson"), the Fund's Information Agent, toll free at 1-877-847-1383, or, for banks or brokers, at 212-440-9800.

Neither the Fund, its Board, nor the Investment Manager is making any recommendation to any stockholder whether to tender shares in the repurchase offer.  The Fund and the Board urge stockholders to read and evaluate the repurchase offer materials carefully before deciding whether to participate in the repurchase offer.  This announcement is not an offer to purchase nor a solicitation of an offer to sell shares of the Fund.  The repurchase offer is being made only through the Offer to Repurchase and the related Letter of Transmittal.  Holders of Fund shares should read these documents when they are available because they contain important information.  These and other filed documents will be available to investors for free both at the website of the Securities and Exchange Commission and from Georgeson.  The repurchase offer is not being made to, nor will tenders be accepted from or on behalf of, holders of shares in any jurisdiction in which making or accepting the repurchase offer would violate that jurisdiction's laws.

The Fund is a closed-end management investment company and its investment objective is long-term capital appreciation, which it seeks to achieve by investing primarily in equity securities of Asian companies.  The Fund conducts semi-annual repurchase offers and is traded on the NYSE under the trading symbol "GRR."  Aberdeen Asset Management Asia Limited serves as the Investment Manager to the Fund.  The Investment Manager is an affiliate of Aberdeen Asset Management PLC.
