BENEFITS

OF

ENTERING

INTO

THE

REORGANISATION AGREEMENT
As the quality and scale of the assets of Yuneng Group (especially its power generating assets) are relatively good and large, participating in the reorganisation of Yuneng Group through capital injection in order to ultimately obtain control over Yuneng Group will increase the power generation capacity of the Company and the market share of the Company in the power market of Chongqing region on the one hand, and expand the business scope of the Company on the other hand. This is in line with the Company’s strategy of “focusing on the power generation business while developing with synergy and diversifications” and is beneficial for the sustainable development of the Company.

Therefore, upon completion of the reorganisation, the installed capacity of the Company will be increased and the structure of the Company’s power generation assets will be improved. The Board considers that the operation and development of Yuneng Group’s power generation project can take advantage of the growing power demand and the economic development in the Chongqing city, which in turn will enhance the overall profitability of the Company. The participation in the reorganisation work of Yuneng Group through capital contribution by the Company is in the interest of the Company and the Shareholders as a whole.
