DANVILLE, Calif., Oct. 13, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- S3Investment Company, Inc. (Pink Sheets:SIVC) today announced that the company's Redwood Group International subsidiary has formed a risk investigation and evaluation division as part of Redwood's overall company subsidiary expansion, which is designed to increase its revenue streams and provide additional synergistic services to clients in the greater China region, including Mongolia. The Redwood subsidiary expansion has included the opening of new offices in Ulaanbataar, Mongolia and Hong Kong as well as the establishment of the Redwood Asia Fund LP, a private equity fund which was formed to facilitate faster capital response to the financing needs of Redwood Capital clients and greater participation in clients' future growth.

Redwood has developed very positive relationships and partnerships with related departments of local government, industry associations, leading financial media, financial organizations, and insurance organizations.  It has built regional cooperation teams throughout China, which include but are not limited to local legal and accounting firms that further expand the company's network with diversified information access.  Redwood has also established long-term relationships with many information database platforms, which broadens its search database.
