NAM TAI PROPERTY INC. Announces the Availability of Updated Real Estate Feasibility Studies

SHENZHEN, China, June 22, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Nam Tai Property Inc. ("We", "Nam Tai" or the "Company") (NYSE Symbol: NTP) announced today the availability of three updated real estate feasibility studies prepared by Savills, Cushman & Wakefield and Jones Lang LaSalle on the Company website.

The appraised values of our properties prepared by Savills, Cushman & Wakefield and Jones Lang LaSalle as presented in the real estate feasibility studies are based on multiple assumptions containing elements of subjectivity and uncertainty, including, among other things, that:

  • we will complete development projects on time;
  • we have obtained or will obtain on a timely basis all approvals from regulators necessary for the development of the projects; and
  • we have obtained valid land titles to the development projects.

As a result, the appraised values of our properties may differ materially from the price we could receive in an actual lease or sale of the properties in the market and should not be taken as their actual realizable value or a forecast of their realizable value. Unforeseeable changes to our development of the property projects, as well as national and local economic conditions, may affect the value of our properties. In particular, the valuation of our properties could stagnate or even decrease if the market for comparable properties in Shenzhen, China experiences a downturn whether as a result of government policies directed to the property sector or otherwise.

We make no representation concerning the accuracy of these real estate feasibility studies and disclaim any responsibility to update or continue to make these studies available in the future.

FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS AND FACTORS THAT COULD CAUSE OUR SHARE PRICE TO DECLINE

Certain statements included in this press release, other than statements of historical fact, are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements generally can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as "may", "will", "expect", "intend", "estimate", "anticipate", "plan", "seek", "believe" or "timetable". These forward-looking statements, which are subject to risks, uncertainties, and assumptions, may include projections of our future financial performance based on our growth strategies and anticipated trends in our business. These statements are only predictions based on our current expectations about future events. There are important factors that could cause our actual results, level of activity, performance, or achievements to differ materially from the results, level of activities, performance, or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements, including, but not limited to, delay in the Company's ability to obtain all requisite permits and approvals from relevant government authorities in relation to the redevelopment of two parcels of properties in Guangming, Shenzhen, and Gushu, Shenzhen, respectively, and the successful redevelopment of the two parcels of properties into Nam Tai Inno Park and Nam Tai Inno City; the sufficiency of the Company's cash position and other sources of liquidity to fund its property developments; continued inflation and appreciation of the Renminbi against the US dollar; rising labor costs in China and changes in the labor supply and labor relations. In particular, you should consider the risks outlined under the heading "Risk Factors" in our most recent Annual Report on Form 20-F and in our Current Report filed on Form 6-K from time to time. The Company's decision to continue dividend payments in 2018 does not necessarily mean that dividend payments will continue thereafter. Whether future dividends will be declared depends upon the Company's future growth and earnings, of which there can be no assurance, as well as the Company's cash flow needs for further expansion. Accordingly, there can be no assurance that cash dividends on the Company's common shares will be declared beyond those declared for 2018, what amount those dividends may be or whether such dividends, once declared for a specific period, will continue for any future period, or at all; and whether we will purchase any of our shares in the open markets or otherwise. Although we believe the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, we cannot guarantee future results, level of activity, performance, or achievements. You should not rely upon forward-looking statements as predictions of future events. These forward-looking statements apply only as of the date of this press release; as such, they should not be unduly relied upon as circumstances change. Except as required by law, we are not obligated, and we undertake no obligation, to release publicly any revisions to these forward-looking statements that might reflect events or circumstance occurring after the date of this release or those that might reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events.
