    REGISTRATION DURING MIGRATION PERIOD

    From 12 March 2007 until 30 March 2007, you may register for the new system by logging-in to the current website www.einvest.com.my
    with your existing User ID and password. The system will prompt you the registration page. Please follow the instruction on screen to complete
    the registration process. If you do not wish to register during this period, you may proceed to the current website.

    The following are some of the points to take note for registration:

    (i) On the new website, you may register with a User ID of your choice and choose your own Log-on Password and Trading PIN.

    (ii) If you are a BASIC version client, you will also have to key-in the Trading PIN and keep it, even though you do not need it now.
         The Trading PIN will come into use when you apply to upgrade to the FULL version (with trading function) in the future.

    (iii) You will also be required to provide a valid Email Address or Handphone Number. This information is important because
         future communications from us will be done through email or SMS (handphone) as per your preference. You will also have
         to key-in Hint Question and Answer which are required when requesting for new Log-on Password or Trading PIN in the future.
         It is important to keep the Hint Answer to yourself. If you forget your Log-on Password or Trading PIN,you can request
         for a new one online and a temporary Password/PIN will be sent to you through Email or SMS. If you choose SMS as your preferred
         mode of communication,the SMS charges (for all communications) will be charged to you directly by your telecommunication
         company
.

    (iv) If you have multiple trading accounts, your new User ID will be linked to all your trading accounts registered for
         HwangDBS-E'Invest. Hence, you will only log-in with one(1) User ID to get access to all the registered HwangDBS-E'Invest
         trading accounts. When you send an order, you can choose from the list of registered trading accounts for the order
         to send to.(For example, you currently have three(3) trading accounts linked to HwangDBS-E'Invest and are holding three(3) sets
         of User IDs and login/trading passwords. Now, you will only hold one(1) User ID and one(1) set of Log-on Password and
         Trading PIN for all accounts.)

    Upon successful registration, you may log-in to the new website einvest.hdbsib.com to view the enhancements and get
    familiarized with the features. Please keep your new Log-on Password and Trading PIN as they will be used on the new website after the
    launch date. For FULL version clients, you will not be able to send orders or messages to your dealer's representative on the new website
    during the registration period.
