INTRODUCTION The Board refers to the announcement of the Company dated 12 January 2021 in relation tothe Cooperation Agreement and the Transactions. The Company has obtained a written shareholders' approval from Girgio Industries Limited ("Girgio Industries"), a controlling shareholder of the Company, holding in aggregate 770,980,000 Shares, representing approximately 64.7% of the entire issued share capital of the Company as at the Latest Practicable Date, for the Cooperation Agreement and the Transactions contemplated thereunder. Accordingly, the written approval from Girgio Industries will be accepted in lieu of holding a general meeting of the Company for the approval of the Cooperation Agreement and the Transactions pursuant to Rule 14.44 of the Listing Rules. The purpose of this circular is to provide the Shareholders with, amongst others: (i) further information regarding the Cooperation Agreement and the Transactions; and (ii) the property valuation report in respect of the Properties. 2. THE URBAN RENEWAL PROJECT As mentioned in the announcement of the Company dated 28 December 2020, the Vendor and the Purchaser entered into the MOU dated 28 December 2020 in relation to the Disposal, pursuant to which, amongst others, the Purchaser paid a refundable earnest money of RMB10,000,000 to the Vendor. The Board is pleased to announce that on 12 January 2021, the Vendor, an indirectly wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, entered into the Cooperation Agreement with the Purchaser, pursuant to which the Vendor has agreed to sell, and the Purchaser has agreed to purchase, the Properties located in Shenzhen, Guangdong, the PRC, for a consideration comprising (i) the Monetary Consideration of RMB350 million (equivalent to approximately HK$419.1 million); and (ii) the Resettlement Properties, which are estimated by the Property Valuer to have a gross development value of approximately RMB1,249 million (equivalent to approximately HK$1,495.6 million) as at 5 January 2021. Since the Cooperation Agreement has been entered into by the Vendor and the Purchaser, the refundable earnest money of RMB10,000,000 has been returned to the Purchaser without interest in accordance with the terms of the MOU as at the Latest Practicable Date. 3. THE COOPERATION AGREEMENT A summary of the salient terms of the Cooperation Agreement in relation to the Urban Renewal Project is set out below. Date The parties have designated the Purchaser as the execution principal (ྼ݄˴᜗) of the Urban Renewal Project. The Purchaser is responsible for obtaining approval from the PRC government for the redevelopment and reconstruction works contemplated under the Urban Renewal Project, including but not limited to the demolition of the existing properties, the design, construction, renovation, completion, and paying all costs in connection with it (including but not limited to the expenses incurred in connection with demolition, reconstruction, renovation, land premium and relevant tax and expenses) and handover the certificates of title of the redeveloped Resettlement Properties to the Vendor. The Vendor is responsible for the provision of the Properties, which were occupied by Shenzhen Leadwell as its manufacturing plant for the production of the Group's products, namely, die-casting machines as at the Latest Practicable Date, and will receive the Monetary Consideration and the Resettlement Properties as consideration under the Cooperation Agreement. The Properties to be disposed of The Properties, located at the South of Jihe Expressway, Longhua Street, Longhua District, Shenzhen, Guangdong, the PRC* (ʕ਷ᄿ؇޲ଉέ̹ᎲശਜᎲശ൑༸ዚஃ৷஺ʮ ༩یਉ): (i) comprise the following: (a) the land use rights to certain lands being industrial land (ʈุ͜ή), with an aggregate land area (ɺήࠦጐ) of approximately 10,104.60 sq. m. ("Land A"); (b) certain buildings erected on Land A, with an aggregate gross floor area (ܔ ጘࠦጐ) of approximately 9,901.51 sq. m. ("Buildings A"); (c) the land use rights to certain lands being industrial land (ʈุ͜ή), with an aggregate land area (ɺήࠦጐ) of approximately 46,239.11 sq. m.

(the "Excluded Land"); and (b) certain buildings erected on the Excluded Land, with an aggregate gross floor area (ܔጘࠦጐ) of approximately 14,779.18 sq. m. (the "Excluded Buildings"), together with any attachments, roads, green areas, water and electricity facilities, etc. located thereon. According to the unaudited condensed consolidated interim results of the Group as at 30 September 2020, the unaudited net book value of the Properties is approximately HK$19.0 million. Consideration The aggregate consideration for the Disposal (the "Disposal Consideration") comprises of: (i) a monetary consideration (the "Monetary Consideration") of RMB350 million (equivalent to approximately HK$419.1 million) payable by the Purchaser; and (ii) the title to the redeveloped properties (the "Resettlement Properties"), which shall consist of, subject to adjustments, (a) redeveloped properties dominantly for industrial use (including new research centres, ancillary dormitories and ancillary commercial property) with a plot ratio-based gross floor area (ࠇ࢙ጐଟܔጘࠦ ጐ) of 38,000 sq. m. (the "Industrial Resettlement Properties"); and (b) redeveloped properties for residential use (i.e., commodity housing) with a gross floor area (ܔጘࠦጐ) of 2,500 sq. m. (the "Residential Resettlement Properties"), to be transferred from the Purchaser to the Vendor. The gross development value of the Resettlement Properties is estimated to be approximately RMB1,249 million (equivalent to approximately HK$1,495.6 million) as at 5 January 2021 based on the preliminary valuation prepared by the Property Valuer. Please refer to the paragraph headed "Financial Effect of the Transactions and Intended Use of Proceeds" in this section below for details of the basis on determining the gross development value of the Resettlement Properties. The Disposal Consideration has been determined after arm's length negotiations between the parties with reference to (i) the abovementioned carrying value of the Properties as at 30 September 2020; (ii) the appraised value of the Properties as at 5 January 2021 of approximately RMB195.9 million (equivalent to approximately HK$234.6 million) according to the preliminary valuation by the Property Valuer (the report of the same is set out in Appendix I to this circular); and (iii) the abovementioned gross development value of the Resettlement Properties. The Monetary Consideration The Monetary Consideration is payable by the Purchaser to the Vendor in the following manner: (1) 10% of the Monetary Consideration, amounting to RMB35 million (equivalent to approximately HK$41.9 million), shall be paid within 10 working days upon entering into of the Cooperation Agreement; (2) 10% of the Monetary Consideration, amounting to RMB35 million (equivalent to approximately HK$41.9 million), shall be paid within 10 working days upon (a) the years of construction completion (ܔጘംʈϋࠢ) of the Properties reaching 15 years (i.e., 24 July 2021); and (b) the Cooperation Agreement and the Transactions having been approved by the Shareholders (the "Shareholders' Approval"); (the instalments stated in (1) and (2) above shall collectively be referred to as the "Performance Deposit") (3) 30% of the Monetary Consideration, amounting to RMB105 million (equivalent to approximately HK$125.7 million), shall be paid within 10 working days upon the Urban Renewal Planning (̹۬һอఊʩࠇྌ) being approved by the Competent Authority (˴၍௅ژ), which is expected to take place by November 2022; (4) 20% of the Monetary Consideration, amounting to RMB70 million (equivalent to approximately HK$83.8 million), shall be paid (a) within 10 working days upon the Urban Renewal Specialised Planning (̹۬һอఊʩਖ਼ධ஝ྌ) being approved by the Competent Authority (˴၍௅ژ), which is expected to take place by February 2024; or (b) within 450 calendar days upon the Urban Renewal Planning (̹۬һอఊʩࠇྌ) being approved by the Competent Authority (˴၍ ௅ژ), whichever is the earlier; (5) 20% of the Monetary Consideration, amounting to RMB70 million (equivalent to approximately HK$83.8 million), shall be paid within 10 working days upon (a) the confirmation of the execution principal (ྼ݄˴᜗ᆽႩ); and (b) the Vendor vacating and handing over the Properties pursuant to the terms of the Cooperation Agreement, which is expected to take place by July 2024; and (6) 10% of the Monetary Consideration, amounting to RMB35 million (equivalent to approximately HK$41.9 million), shall be paid (a) within 10 working days upon the Competent Authority (˴၍௅ژ) entering into of land use rights transfer agreement (ɺήԴ͜ᛆ̈ᜫΥΝ) in relation to the Urban Renewal Project with the execution principal (ྼ݄˴᜗), which is expected to take place by December 2024; or (b) within 150 calendar days upon the confirmation of the execution principal (ྼ݄˴᜗ᆽႩ) and the Vendor having vacated and handed over the Properties, whichever is the earlier. As at the Latest Practicable Date, the instalment of the Monetary Consideration stated in (1) above has been received by the Vendor. The Resettlement Properties The title to the Resettlement Properties shall be registered (the "Title Registration") in the Vendor's name (or, if allowed by applicable laws and regulations, its nominee's name) within 12 months upon (i) the redeveloped Resettlement Properties having passed the acceptance inspection (ംʈ᜕ϗΥࣸ) and completed delivery; and (ii) the Vendor having provided requisite information or documents for the Title Registration. It is expected the Title Registration will take place by January 2029 in accordance with the Delivery Timeframe. In case where the requisite certificates and documents of the Resettlement Properties and/or the quality of the Resettlement Properties does not meet the standard stipulated under the Cooperation Agreement, the Vendor may refuse to receive the Resettlement Properties (the "Refusal of Delivery"). In case of a Refusal of Delivery, the Vendor shall be entitled to the liquidated damages further particularised in item (iii) of the paragraph headed "The Cooperation Agreement - Termination and defaulting liabilities" in this section below. Adjustments to the gross floor area of the Resettlement Properties The gross floor area of the Resettlement Properties is subject to the following adjustments: (i) for the Industrial Resettlement Properties, in case where the plot ratio-based gross floor area (ࠇ࢙ጐଟܔጘࠦጐ) approved pursuant to the Urban Renewal Specialised Planning (̹۬һอఊʩਖ਼ධ஝ྌ) exceeds 38,000 sq. m., the Vendor may accept all or part of the excess or decline to accept the excess at all. If the Vendor chooses to accept the excess, the Vendor may opt to pay for the excess at a rate of RMB15,000 per sq. m. of the excess or to exchange for every 3 sq. m. of the excess with 1 sq. m. of Residential Resettlement Properties; (ii) for the Industrial Resettlement Properties, in case where the plot ratio-based gross floor area (ࠇ࢙ጐଟܔጘࠦጐ) approved pursuant to the Urban Renewal Specialised Planning (̹۬һอఊʩਖ਼ධ஝ྌ) falls short of 38,000 sq. m., the Purchaser shall compensate the Vendor for the shortfall. The Vendor may opt to have compensation at a rate of RMB25,000 per sq. m. of the shortfall or to exchange for 1 sq. m. of Residential Resettlement Properties with every 1 sq. m. of the shortfall; and (iii) for the Residential Resettlement Properties, in case where the approved gross floor area (ܔጘࠦጐ) falls short of 2,500 sq. m., the Purchaser shall compensate the shortfall with shops (ਠ⧕) of equivalent size on the same lot of land of the Resettlement Properties. If the gross floor area (ܔጘࠦጐ) of Residential Resettlement Properties plus the shops (ਠ⧕) still falls short of 2,500 sq. m., the Purchaser shall further compensate the shortfall with office property (ᄳοᅽ፬ʮ يุ) of equivalent size on the same lot of land of the Resettlement Properties. Pursuant to the Cooperation Agreement, the Vendor is not entitled to accept the excess of the Residential Resettlement Properties in case where the approved gross floor area (ܔጘࠦጐ) exceeds 2,500 sq. m. The rate of RMB15,000 per sq. m. of the excess of Industrial Resettlement Properties was determined based on the expected construction costs of the Industrial Resettlement Properties, whilst the rate of exchange for every 3 sq. m. of the excess of Industrial Resettlement Properties with 1 sq. m. of Residential Resettlement Properties has taken into account the difference in the market price of the Industrial Resettlement Properties to that of the Residential Resettlement Properties. The rate of compensation of RMB25,000 per sq. m. of the shortfall of Industrial Resettlement Properties was determined based on the expected market price of the Industrial Resettlement Properties, whilst the rate of exchange for 1 sq. m. of Residential Resettlement Properties with every 1 sq. m. of the shortfall of Industrial Resettlement Properties was determined at a discount to the market price of the Industrial Resettlement Properties and Residential Resettlement Properties, where the discount of which was determined on a discretionary basis of the parties. In the event the actual gross floor area of the Resettlement Properties exceeds or falls short of the agreed and adjusted (if any) gross floor area due to construction planning (ܔጘ ஝ྌணࠇ), (i) the Vendor shall pay for the excess of the Industrial Resettlement Properties at a rate of RMB15,000 per sq. m.; (ii) the Purchaser shall compensate for the shortfall of the Industrial Resettlement Properties at a rate of RMB25,000 per sq. m.; and/or (iii) the shortfall of the Residential Resettlement Properties shall be compensated for by the Purchaser at a rate based on the pre-sale filing average price (ཫਯ௪ࣩѩᄆ) of the property of the same type under the Urban Renewal Project. The pre-sale filing average price (ཫਯ௪ࣩѩᄆ) refers to the average price of the pre-sale price (ཫਯᄆࣸ) of the relevant properties filed with the relevant government authority by the property developers prior to the pre-sale of the relevant properties, which is determined with reference to the then recent actual sale price of properties of the same type in the vicinity. Accordingly, the Directors consider that the pre-sale filing average price (ཫਯ௪ࣩѩᄆ) in general reflects the market price of the properties of the same type in the vicinity, and referencing the compensation provided by the Purchaser to the pre-sale filing average price (ཫਯ௪ࣩѩᄆ) for the shortfall of the Residential Resettlement Properties as a result of the construction planning (ܔጘ஝ྌணࠇ) achieves certainty, and is fair and reasonable to both the Vendor and the Purchaser. Vacation and handover of the Properties Subject to the terms and conditions of the Cooperation Agreement, the Purchaser shall notify the Vendor in advance in relation to the vacation and handover of the Properties (the "Vacation Notification") upon the Urban Renewal Planning (̹۬һอఊʩࠇྌ) being approved. The Vendor shall vacate the Properties within five months of the VacationNotification or within 15 days of the Purchaser being confirmed as the execution principal (ྼ݄˴᜗), whichever is the later. The Vendor shall also handover the certificates of title of the Properties and the requisite information or documents for the deregistration of such certificates to the Purchaser. It is expected that the Vendor shall vacate the Properties and handover the certificates of title of the Properties by July 2024. Timeframe of the Urban Renewal Project The proposed timeframe of the Urban Renewal Project is agreed as follows: (1) Urban Renewal Approval (ͭධҁϓ) shall be obtained by the Purchaser within two years after the Shareholders' Approval. In case where Urban Renewal Approval (ͭධҁϓ) is not obtained within the abovementioned timeframe, (a) the Vendor may unilaterally terminate the Cooperation Agreement, and upon which the Vendor shall return 50% of the paid Performance Deposit; or (b) if concrete progress of the Urban Renewal Project has been made by the Purchaser, the timeframe for Urban Renewal Approval (ͭ ධҁϓ) may further extend for a year with the prior written consent of the Vendor. If Urban Renewal Approval (ͭධҁϓ) is still not obtained within the extended timeframe, the Vendor may unilaterally terminate the Cooperation Agreement in the manner stated in (a) above. (2) "Construction permit for construction works" ( ܔጘʈ೻݄ʈ஢̙ᗇ') shall be obtained and construction shall commence within four years after the Shareholders' Approval (shall be extended to five years in case where the timeframe in (1) is so extended), unless the delay is due to the Vendor's fault (the "Construction Timeframe"). It is expected that the Construction Timeframe will be fulfilled by January 2025. (3) Delivery of the Resettlement Properties shall be completed within four years after the Purchaser having obtained the "Construction permit for construction works" ( ܔጘʈ೻݄ʈ஢̙ᗇ') (the "Delivery Timeframe"). It is expected that the Delivery Timeframe will be fulfilled by January 2029. Condition precedent Completion of the Transactions shall be conditional upon the Shareholders' Approval having been obtained. In the event that the condition precedent could not be satisfied, the Cooperation Agreement will be terminated. As at the Latest Practicable Date, the Company has obtained the Shareholders' Approval by way of a written shareholders' approval from Girgio Industries pursuant to Rule 14.44 of the Listing Rules. Please refer to the paragraph headed "Listing Rules Implications" in this section below for further details. Accordingly, the condition precedent under the Transactions has been satisfied as at the Latest Practicable Date. Termination and defaulting liabilities The parties are entitled to terminate the Cooperation Agreement and/or entitled to liquidated damages in, amongst others, the following events. (i) In the event where any amount payable by the Purchaser under the Cooperation Agreement becomes overdue, the Vendor shall be entitled to a liquidated damages of 0.05% of the overdue amount per day payable by the Purchaser. If the relevant amount remains overdue for more than 60 days, the Vendor may unilaterally terminate the Cooperation Agreement, and upon which (a) the Performance Deposit shall be forfeited by the Vendor; (b) the Vendor shall be entitled to a liquidated damages of RMB20 million payable by the Purchaser for the termination of the Cooperation Agreement; and (c) other amount received by the Vendor under the Cooperation Agreement shall be returned to the Purchaser without interest within 30 days of the Cooperation Agreement being terminated. (ii) In the event where the Construction Timeframe is not met, the Vendor shall be entitled to a liquidated damages of RMB40,000 per day payable by the Purchaser until conditions under the Construction Timeframe are met. If the conditions under the Construction Timeframe are not fulfilled within 24 months after the Construction Timeframe, and: (a) if the Purchaser has yet to be confirmed as the execution principal (ྼ݄˴ ᜗), the parties shall re-negotiate the terms of the Urban Renewal Project; and if no agreement has been reached upon the re-negotiation within six months, either party is entitled to terminate the Cooperation Agreement; or (b) if the Purchaser has been confirmed as the execution principal (ྼ݄˴᜗), the parties shall re-negotiate the Construction Timeframe, provided, however, that, any liquidated damages payable under this event shall not exceed the Monetary Consideration already paid by the Purchaser to the Vendor, upon which the parties shall re-negotiate the terms of the Urban Renewal Project. (iii) In the event where the Delivery Timeframe is not met or where there is a Refusal of Delivery, the Vendor shall be entitled to a liquidated damages of the higher of (a) RMB100 per sq. m. of the gross floor area (ܔጘࠦጐ) per month of the undelivered Resettlement Properties; or (b) market rent standard (̹ఙॡږᅺ๟) of properties of the same type payable by the Purchaser based on the gross floor area (ܔጘࠦጐ) of the undelivered Resettlement Properties. Delay of the Delivery Timeframe for every year shall entitle the Vendor to receive from the Purchaser liquidated damages of 150% of the annualised liquidated damages received under this event in the previous year. (iv) In the event where the Title Registration is not made within the requisite timeframe, the Vendor shall be entitled to a liquidated damages of 0.03% of the higher of the value of the unregistered Resettlement Properties calculated based on (a) the pre-sale filing average price (ཫਯ௪ࣩѩᄆ) of the saleable property (̙ਯيุ) of the same type and same phase under the Urban Renewal Project at the time of obtaining the pre-sale permit (ཫਯ஢̙ᗇ); or (b) average market price (̹ṿቖਯѩᄆ) of same type of properties. (v) In the event where the Purchaser is directly owned less than 51% by Shenzhen Vanke prior to the pre-sale permit (ཫਯ஢̙ᗇ) for the Urban Renewal Project being obtained and without prior written consent of the Vendor, the Vendor shall be entitled to a liquidated damages of 0.05% of the aggregate Monetary Consideration per day payable by the Purchaser up to and until the Purchaser resumes to be directly owned as to 51% or more by Shenzhen Vanke. (vi) In the event where the vacation and handover of the Properties does not meet the agreed timeframe, or where the Vendor fails to procure necessary assistance in relation to the Urban Renewal Project (including but not limited to the administrative procedures related to the Urban Renewal Project and the handing over of the certificates of title of the Properties) within the reasonable timeframe requested by the Purchaser, and that such failure is attributable to the Vendor and has not be rectified within three working days of written follow-up by the Purchaser, the Purchaser shall be entitled to a liquidated damages of 0.05% of the Monetary Consideration actually received by the Vendor per day payable by the Vendor up to and until such failure is rectified by the Vendor. In such event of delay, the timeframe of the Urban Renewal Project shall be extended accordingly. 4. THE POSSIBLE RELOCATION OF THE MANUFACTURING PLANT Pursuant to the terms of the Cooperation Agreement, the Vendor shall vacate the Properties within five months of the Vacation Notification or within 15 days of the Purchaser being confirmed as the execution principal (ྼ݄˴᜗), whichever is the latter, which the Company expects the vacation to take place by about June 2024. As at the Latest Practicable Date, the Properties were occupied by Shenzhen Leadwell as its manufacturing plant for the production of the Group's products, namely, die-casting machines. Shall the Cooperation Agreement materialise and the Group shall vacate from the Properties pursuant to its terms, the Company currently plans to relocate the existing production lines on the Properties to its new manufacturing plant (the "New Manufacturing Plant") prior to the vacation and the cessation of its existing production (the "Possible Relocation"). The New Manufacturing Plant is located in the Shen-Shan Special Cooperation Zone (ଉϭ तйΥЪਜ) in Shenzhen, Guangdong, the PRC and is currently under construction. The land on which the New Manufacturing Plant is situated was acquired by the Group in June 2018 from Shanwei Municipal Bureau of Land and Resources* (ϭ҈̹਷ɺ༟๕҅) at an aggregateconsideration of RMB27.6 million (equivalent to approximately HK$33.0 million) pursuant to a State-owned Construction Land Use Rights Grant Contract (਷Ϟܔண͜ήԴ͜ᛆ̈ᜫΥΝ) dated 11 June 2018 (the "Land Acquisition"). According to the latest construction plan, it is expected that the construction of the New Manufacturing Plant will be completed by the end of 2022. The New Manufacturing Plant will have a production capacity similar to that of the existing production lines on the Properties. As at the Latest Practicable Date, and assuming that the Group will purchase brand new machineries for the production facilities at the New Manufacturing Plant, the estimated cost and expenses for the Possible Relocation are as follows: HK$'000 320,000 160,000 480,000 The Board expects that the Possible Relocation will take about nine months to complete, and that the Group will maintain the requisite level of production scale during the transitional period of the Possible Relocation to satisfy the demands from the customers. As at the Latest Practicable Date, the Possible Relocation has not commenced. In view of the expected completion of the construction of the New Manufacturing Plant by the end of 2022, the Directors are of the view that the Possible Relocation will be completed prior to the vacation and handover of the Properties which is expected to take place by July 2024. Albeit it is expected that customer orders will gradually and seamlessly be taken up by the New Manufacturing Plant of the Group several months upon the completion of the Possible Relocation, the management of the Group will minimise the impact, if any, of Possible Relocation on the employees, production activities and customers' orders of the Group. In addition, the Group also owns another manufacturing plant for the production of the die-casting machines in Longhua District, Shenzhen, Guangdong, the PRC, which may take up the customer orders during the transitional period of the Possible Relocation. Accordingly, the Directors are of the view that the Cooperation Arrangement will not have material adverse effect to the Group's operation and principal business activities as there will be sufficient time for the Group to plan for the Possible Relocation and minimise the impact of the Possible Relocation during the transitional period before the cessation of its existing production at the Properties. Taking into account the Possible Relocation gives rise to an opportunity for the Group to upgrade the machineries, automate and intelligentise production lines to level up production and operation efficiency, and optimise the production capacity of die-casting machines required for emerging industries and new-energy vehicles, the Board considers the Possible Relocation will bring long-term benefit to the Group and Shareholders as a whole. Since all the applicable percentage ratios of each of the underlying transactions of the Possible Relocation entered into by the Group so far (including the Land Acquisition and the transactions in relation to the construction of the New Manufacturing Plant) do not exceed 5%, and each of such underlying transactions was entered into with Independent Third Party(ies), such underlying transactions do not constitute notifiable transactions nor connected transactions of the Company under Chapter 14 and Chapter 14A of the Listing Rules. The Company will make further announcement(s) in respect of the Possible Relocation and/or the underlying transactions thereto as and when appropriate to update the Shareholders and potential investors of the Company in accordance with the Listing Rules. 5. FINANCIAL EFFECT OF THE TRANSACTIONS AND INTENDED USE OF PROCEEDS The unaudited net book value of the Properties as at 30 September 2020 was approximately HK$19.0 million. Based on the preliminary valuation prepared by the Property Valuer, the appraised value of the Properties as at 5 January 2021 was estimated to be approximately RMB195.9 million (equivalent to approximately HK$234.6 million). There is no identifiable income stream originated from the Properties. The Properties will be de-recognised from the books of the Group when the Group deregisters its legal title to the Properties. The unaudited net book value of the machineries and equipment situated on the Properties as at 30 September 2020 was approximately HK$48.8 million. Certain of the relevant machineries and equipment will be de-recognised from the books of the Group or impaired if it cannot be relocated to the New Manufacturing Plant or is damaged. Upon completion of the Cooperation Agreement, it is estimated that the total assets of the Group would be increased by approximately HK$1,871.4 million (i.e., the Monetary Consideration plus the gross development value of the Resettlement Properties, less the abovementioned unaudited net book value of the Properties and other related costs and expenses directly attributable to the Transactions, but without taking into account any PRC taxes to be or may be charged) and, except for the tax implications arising from the Transactions, there will be no material impact to the total liabilities of the Group. Based on the preliminary valuation prepared by the Property Valuer, as at 5 January 2021, the gross development value of the Resettlement Properties (comprising new research centres, ancillary dormitories, ancillary commercial property and commodity housing) was approximately RMB1,249 million (equivalent to approximately HK$1,495.6 million). The gross development value represents the price at current of the relevant properties assuming the proposed development has been newly completed as at the date of valuation pursuant to the prevailing development control parameters under the relevant regulatory frameworks as well as the latest available hypothetical development proposal. In arriving at the gross development value of the Resettlement Properties, the Property Valuer has made reference to (i) the pre-sale filing average prices (ཫਯ௪ࣩѩᄆ) of similar type of development for the unit rates of new research centres, ancillary dormitories, ancillary commercial property; and (ii) the offering of comparable properties for the unit rate of commodity housing. For further details, please refer to the paragraphs headed "Property Valuation Report - Basis of Value" and "Property ValuationReport - Approach to Value" and note 8 to the property valuation report in Appendix I to this circular. The Company intends that the new research centres will be served as the research and development centre for the Group's product lines (namely, die-casting machines, plastic injection moulding machines and the computerised numerical controlled machines, the "Product Lines"), showrooms and technical training centre for the Product Lines, and offices for design, application and industrial engineers for the Product Lines. As the Resettlement Properties will be received after around eight years' time, the Group will depend on the market conditions when receiving Resettlement Properties to formulate a concrete strategy. Upon completion of the Cooperation Agreement, it is estimated that the Group will record an unaudited net gain of approximately HK$1,871.4 million. Such an unaudited net gain has not taken into account any PRC taxes to be or may be charged, and is estimated based on the Monetary Consideration and the abovementioned gross development value of the Resettlement Properties, less the unaudited net book value of the Properties as at 30 September 2020 and other related costs and expenses directly attributable to the Transactions (such as consulting fees for surveyors, legal advisers and other professional fees and spending) (i.e., approximately HK$24.3 million). The actual gain to be recorded by the Group will depend on (i) the net book value of the Properties as at the date of deregistration of the title to the Properties; (ii) the actual costs and expenses to be incurred by the Group in connection with the Urban Renewal Project; (iii) the actual value of the Resettlement properties; and (iv) the associated PRC taxes in connection with the Urban Renewal Project, and therefore, the actual gain before tax is subject to changes and may be different from the amount as presented above. The Monetary Consideration received pursuant to the Cooperation Agreement prior to entering into of land use rights transfer agreement (ɺήԴ͜ᛆ̈ᜫΥΝ) will be recognised as a liability in the form of receipt in advance in the financial statements of the Group. Upon signing of the land use rights transfer agreement (ɺήԴ͜ᛆ̈ᜫΥΝ) and deregistering its legal title to the Properties (at point (6) of the time sequence stated under the paragraph headed "The Cooperation Agreement - Consideration - The Monetary Consideration" in this section above), the Group fulfils its performance obligations as mentioned in the Cooperation Agreement as the control of the Properties has been transferred to the Purchaser, and the Group is entitled to the Monetary Consideration and the Resettlement Properties, the Group will then record the gain on disposal, including the recognition of the RMB350 million Monetary Consideration previously recognised as receipt in advance, the prepaid assets in relation to the Resettlement Properties and the respective PRC tax liabilities on the financial statements. The prepaid assets in relation to the Resettlement Properties to be recognised will be based on the estimated fair value of the Resettlement Properties on the date the gain on disposal is recognised. The Group will recognise the Resettlement Properties on the financial statements from the prepaid assets upon the Purchaser handing over the certificates of title of the Resettlement Properties to the Group. The net proceeds (i.e., the Monetary Consideration deducting the other related costs and expenses, but without taking into account any PRC taxes to be or may be charged) arising from the Transactions will be approximately HK$394.8 million. The Company intends to apply the net proceeds in the following manner: (i) approximately 50% of the net proceeds in the New Manufacturing Plant; and (ii) approximately 50% of the net proceeds for the Group's general working capital. 6. REASONS FOR AND BENEFITS OF THE TRANSACTIONS The Urban Renewal Project provides an opportunity to obtain funds to finance the construction of the New Manufacturing Plant, relocation expenses, purchase of machineries and equipment and working capital, and thereby increasing the revenue and enabling the sustainable development of the Group's business in the long run. Upon completion of the Urban Renewal Project, the Company intends to hold the Resettlement Properties as long term investment, depending on the then market conditions and policies in the PRC. In light of the above, the Directors (including the independent non-executive Directors) consider that the terms of the Cooperation Agreement and Transactions contemplated thereunder are fair and reasonable, on normal commercial terms, and in the interests of the Company and the Shareholders as a whole. 7.

MISCELLANEOUS The English text of this circular shall prevail over the Chinese text for the purpose of interpretation. Yours faithfully, L.K. Technology Holdings Limited New Territories, Hong Kong Dear Sirs, We refer to the recent instruction from "L.K. Technology Holdings Limited" (referred to as the "Company") and its subsidiary(ies) (together referred to as the "Group") to us to value the property interest(s) of "Lot Numbers A829-0049 and A829-0050, Southern Side of Jihe Expressway, Longhua Street, Longhua District, Shenzhen, Guangdong Province, the People's Republic of China" (referred to as the "Properties") in relation to the following: (1) the proposed disposal of the Properties by "L.K. Machinery (Shenzhen) Co., Ltd.", an indirectly wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, (the "Vendor") to "Shenzhen Wanjin Investment Co., Ltd." (the "Purchaser") pursuant to the terms of a cooperation agreement in relation to the "Urban Renewal Project" (as defined in the circular of the Company dated the even date) entered into by the Vendor and the Purchaser on 12 January 2021 (the "Cooperation Agreement"); and (2) the proposed acquisition of the Resettlement Properties (which has the meaning ascribed to it under the paragraph headed "The Cooperation Agreement - Consideration" in the circular of the Company dated the even date) by the Vendor pursuant to the Cooperation Agreement. We confirm that we have inspected the Properties, made relevant enquiries and investigations as well as obtained such further information as we consider necessary for the purpose of providing our opinion of value(s) of the Properties as at 5 January 2021 (the "Date of Valuation"). BASIS OF VALUE (1) Market Value In respect of the Disposal, our valuation is our opinion of market value of the Properties on its existing use which is defined as intended to mean "the estimated amount for which an asset or liability should exchange on the valuation date between a willing buyer and a willing seller in an arm's-length transaction after proper marketing and where the parties had each acted knowledgeably, prudently and without compulsion". (2) Gross Development Value In respect of the Acquisition, our valuation is our opinion of gross development value of the Properties which is defined as intended to mean "the market value of the Properties assuming the proposed development has been newly completed as at the Date of Valuation pursuant to the prevailing development control parameters under the relevant regulatory frameworks as well as the latest hypothetical development proposal made available to us". Our valuation(s) has/have been prepared in accordance with "HKIS Valuation Standards 2020" published by "The Hong Kong Institute of Surveyors" ("HKIS"), "RICS Valuation - Global Standards" published by the "Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors" ("RICS"), both incorporate the "International Valuation Standards" ("IVS") published by the "International Valuation Standards Council" ("IVSC"), relevant provisions in the Companies Ordinance and the "Rules Governing the Listing of Securities on The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited" (Main Board) published by "The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited" ("HKEx"). Market value is the best price reasonably obtainable in the market by the seller and the most advantageous price reasonably obtainable in the market by the buyer. This estimate specifically excludes an estimated price inflated or deflated by special terms or circumstances such as atypical financing, sale and leaseback arrangements, special considerations or concessions granted by anyone associated with the sale, or any element of special value. The market value of a property is also estimated without regard to costs of sale and purchase, and without offset for any associated taxes. APPROACH TO VALUE (1) Market Value In respect of the Disposal, we have assessed the Properties on its existing use which is a self-occupation industrial complex. In lack of sufficient comparable for comparison, we have adopted cost approach which "provides an indication of value using the economic principle thata buyer will pay no more for an asset than the cost to obtain an asset of equal utility, whether by purchase or by construction, unless undue time, inconvenience, risk or other factors are involved. The approach provides an indication of value by calculating the current replacement or reproduction cost of an asset and making deductions for physical deterioration and all other relevant forms of obsolescence". Our valuation of the Properties is assessed based on "depreciated replacement cost" ("DRC") which is "the current cost of replacing an asset with its modern equivalent asset less deductions for physical deterioration and all relevant forms of obsolescence and optimisation". Since the Properties comprises various building(s) and structure(s) of a complex or development(s), the reported market value only applies to the whole of the complex or development as a unique interest; and no piecemeal transaction of the complex or development is assumed. The DRC assessed is subject to adequate potential profitability of the business (or to service potential of the entity from the use of assets as a whole) paying due regard to the total assets employed. In our valuation, no consideration has been taken into account of alternative use(s) or development option(s); nor have we considered any redevelopment potential of the Properties, unless otherwise stated in our valuation report. (2) Gross Development Value In respect of the Acquisition, we have assessed the Properties based on price at current as at the Date of Valuation on the special assumption that the proposed development has been newly completed as at the Date of Valuation pursuant to the prevailing development control parameters under the relevant regulatory frameworks as well as the latest hypothetical development proposal made available to us pursuant to "410 Development Property" of IVS. In our valuation, we have adopted market approach which "provides an indication of value by comparing the asset with identical or comparable (that is similar) assets for which price information is available". In arriving at the gross development value of the Properties, we have adopted the direct comparison method of valuation whereby comparisons based on actual sales transactions and/or offerings of comparable properties have been made. Comparable properties with similar character, location, sizes and so on are analysed and carefully weighed against all respective advantages and disadvantages of the proposed development of the Properties in order to arrive at the fair comparison of value(s). TITLE INVESTIGATION The Properties is located in the "People's Republic of China" (the "PRC"), and we have been given extracted copy(ies) of relevant title document(s) for the Properties but we have not checked the title(s) to the Properties nor scrutinized the original title document(s). We have relied on the advice given by the Group and her legal adviser on the laws of the PRC, "Zhong Lun Law Firm" (hereinafter referred to as the "PRC Legal Adviser") regarding title(s) to and ownership of the Properties. For the purpose of our valuation(s), we have taken the legal opinion prepared by the PRC Legal Adviser into account, in particular title(s), ownership, encumbrances and so on of the Properties. While we have exercised our professional judgement in arriving at our valuation(s), you are urged to consider our valuation assumptions with caution. VALUATION CONSIDERATION Having examined all relevant documents, we have relied to a considerable extent on the information given by the Group, particularly planning approval(s) or statutory notice(s), easement(s), land-use rights' term(s), site and floor areas, development options and parametres, development costs, occupancy status as well as in the identification of the Properties. We have had no reason to doubt the truth and accuracy of the information provided to us by the Group and the PRC Legal Adviser and we have been advised that no material fact has been omitted from the information provided. We have not carried out detailed on-site measurement to verify the correctness of the site and floor areas of the Properties but we have assumed that the site and floor areas shown on the document(s) handed to us are accurate and reliable. All dimension(s), measurement(s) and area(s) included in our valuation report are based on the information contained in the document(s) provided to us and are therefore approximations. We had carried out on-site inspection to the Properties and surrounding environment, but not in any form of a building survey, on 30 December 2020. But we must stress that we have not carried out any structural survey nor have we inspected the woodwork or other part(s) of the structure(s) of the Properties which were covered, unexposed or inaccessible to us. We are therefore unable to report whether such part(s) of the Properties is free from any structural or non-structural defect. VALUATION ASSUMPTION Our valuation(s) has/have been made on the assumption that the Properties could be sold in the prevailing market in existing state (for market value assessment) or otherwise assuming the proposed development has been newly completed as at the Date of Valuation (for gross development value assessment), and assuming sale with vacant possession and without the effect of any deferred term contract, leaseback, joint venture or any other similar arrangement which may serve to affect the value(s) of the Properties unless otherwise noted or specified. In addition, no account has been taken into of any option or right of pre-emption concerning or affecting the sale of the Properties. In our valuation(s), we have assumed that the owner(s) of the Properties has/have free and uninterrupted rights to use and assign the Properties during the unexpired land-use rights' term(s) granted subject to payment of usual land-use fee(s). Our valuation(s) for the Properties is carried out on the basis of a cash purchase, and no allowance has been made for interest(s) and/or funding cost(s) in relation to the sale or purchase of the Properties. We had carried out on-site inspection to the Properties but no soil investigation has been carried out to determine the suitability of ground condition or building services for any property development erected on the Properties. Our valuation(s) has/have been carried out on the assumption that these aspects are satisfactory. According to the PRC legal opinion issued by the PRC Legal Adviser, all necessary consent(s), approval(s) and/or licence(s) from relevant government authority(ies) have been granted for the existing property development of the Properties. Our value assessment(s) of the Properties is/are the value(s) estimated without regard to cost(s) of sale or purchase or transaction and without offset for any associated tax(es) or potential tax(es). Any transaction cost(s) or encumbrances such as mortgage, debenture or other charges against the Properties has/have been disregarded. In our valuation(s), we have assumed that the Properties is free from encumbrances, restriction(s) and outgoing(s) of an onerous nature which may serve to affect the value(s) of the Properties. REMARKS The outbreak of the "Novel Coronavirus" ("COVID-19"), declared by the "World Health Organisation" as a "Global Pandemic" on 11 March 2020, has and continues to impact many aspects of daily life and the global economy - with some real estate markets having experienced lower levels of transactional activity and liquidity. Travel restrictions have been implemented by many countries and "lockdowns" applied to varying degrees. Whilst restrictions have now been lifted in some cases, local lockdowns may continue to be deployed as necessary and the emergence of significant further outbreaks or a "second wave" is possible. The pandemic and the measures taken to tackle COVID-19 continue to affect economies and real estate markets globally. Nevertheless, as at the Date of Valuation some property markets have started to function again, with transaction volumes and other relevant evidence returning to levels where an adequate quantum of market evidence exists upon which to base opinion of value. Accordingly, and for the avoidance of doubt, our valuation is not reported as being subject to "Material Valuation Uncertainty" as defined by VPS3 and VPGA10 of the "RICS Valuation - Global Standards" published by RICS as well as "Material Uncertainty" as set out in "VS9 Reporting" of "HKIS Valuation Standards 2020" published by the HKIS, except as identified below. In respect of the sector in which the Properties is being classified, as at the Date of Valuation we continue to be faced with an unprecedented set of circumstances caused by COVID-19 and an absence of relevant or sufficient market evidence on which to base our judgement. Our valuation(s) of the Properties is therefore reported as being subject to "Material Valuation Uncertainty" as set out in VPS3 and VPGA10 of the "RICS Valuation - Global Standards" published by RICS as well as "Material Uncertainty" as set out in "VS9 Reporting" of "HKIS Valuation Standards 2020" published by the HKIS. Consequently, in respect of the valuation less certainty - and a higher degree of caution - should be attached to our valuation than would normally be the case. For the avoidance of doubt, this explanatory note, including the "Material Valuation Uncertainty" declaration, does not mean that the valuation cannot be relied upon. Rather, this explanatory note has been included to ensure transparency and to provide further insight as to the market context under which the valuation opinion was prepared. In recognition of the potential for market conditions to move rapidly in response to changes in the control or future spread of COVID-19 we highlight the importance of the Date of Valuation. We hereby confirm that: (1) we have no present or prospective interest in the Properties; and are not a related corporation of nor having a relationship with the Group, the Purchaser or other party/parties who the Group and/or the Purchaser is contracting with; (2) we are authorised to practise as external valuer and have the necessary expertise and experience in valuing similar types of properties; (3) our valuation(s) has/have been prepared on a fair and unbiased basis; (4) the valuer's compensation is not contingent upon reporting of a predetermined value or direction in value that favours the cause of the Vendor or the Purchaser, the amount of the value(s) estimate, the attainment of a stipulated result(s), or occurrence of subsequent event(s); and (5) we are independent of the Group and the Purchaser. Unless otherwise stated, all monetary amounts stated herein are denoted in "Renminbi" ("RMB"), the lawful currency of the PRC. We enclose herewith the core content of our valuation report.
