DANVILLE, Calif., Oct. 26, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- S3Investment Company, Inc. (Pink Sheets:SIVC) today announced that Chairman and CEO Jim Bickel has traveled to China with planned stops in Mongolia and the Philippines to oversee activities of the company's Redwood subsidiaries, including the expected close of a Redwood Capital client transaction. Mr. Bickel will visit Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong, as well as Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia in support of Redwood Capital, Redwood Medical, the Redwood Private Equity Fund, and Redwood's newly formed Risk Investigation and Evaluation Division.

In Beijing, Shanghai and other locations in China, Mr. Bickel will work with management of Redwood Capital, which assists private Chinese companies in accessing global public markets by achieving reverse merger and financing transactions, by visiting current clients and reviewing the progress of recently signed and prospective clients. Mr. Bickel will also travel to Ulaanbaatar for meetings with a Redwood Capital client that operates in Mongolia. S3 expects to report both new client signings and the closing of a financing and public listing transaction for this Redwood Capital client in the very near future.

Mr. Bickel is currently in Ulaanbaatar and commented, "We expect to announce this major milestone for a Redwood Capital client very shortly. Additional details will be forthcoming. It is difficult to explain how exciting the prospects currently are in the Mongolia market, but as events unfold, S3 shareholders will see that the time and efforts spent on this project have been well worth it."
