Long Term Bank Loan

Long term bank loan increased by $7.1 million in the first nine months of 2019. No long term bank loan existed at the beginning of 2019, the increase was due to the $7.1 million loan from the Bank of Beijing in August 2019 for Nam Tai Technology Center project.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of September 30, 2019, we had a total cash balance of $66.9 million. According to our project development plan, project investment for the fourth quarter of 2019 is estimated to be $35.2 million. The total project investment for the year 2019 is estimated to be $167.0 million.

With respect to the financing of Nam Tai Technology Center, the Company is currently in discussion with a bank for a loan to support the construction of Nam Tai Technology Center. We have obtained preliminary consent from this institution in September 2019 and are expected to enter into a loan agreement in the fourth quarter of 2019.

With respect to the financing of Nam Tai Inno Park, after considering the financing terms and costs, we entered into a financing package with Bank of China in September 2019 for a credit facility of RMB1.0 billion. This package replaced the financing package from China Construction Bank which we entered into in April 2018. The package from Bank of China, which principally consists of a fixed asset loan agreement, will help us obtain financing support with more flexible terms and lower costs. It is also conducive to our development and in line with the best interests of our shareholders.

With respect to other financing activities, we entered into a three-year loan facility with Bank of Beijing in August 2019 for a total amount of RMB50 million, which is guaranteed by a third party guarantee company and Zastron Electronic (Shenzhen) Co., Ltd. and counter-guaranteed by our office property in Qianhai, Shenzhen. The loan amount of RMB50 million was drawn down in the same month.

Please see page 8 of the Company's Condensed Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income for further details. The information contained herein has also been published on the Company's website at https://www.namtai.com/quarterly/index.html.

RECENT DEVELOPMENTS

The development of our projects in Guangming, Shenzhen and Gushu, Shenzhen, continue to proceed as planned.

For Nam Tai Inno Park ("Inno Park"), our construction continued smoothly in the third quarter of 2019. At present, the Company continues to carry out construction on walls, gardens, doors and windows and others, more than half of which have been completed. In the third quarter, we continued to hold various industrial events in Inno Park, to strengthen our brand image as a technology park operator, establish contact with potential technology enterprise tenants, and deepen the relationship with partners. These industrial activities included the "Preliminary Round for the Third Guangming District Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition" held in July 2019, the "Inno Park Talent Decoding Series Activities" held in August 2019, and the "CHTF Nam Tai Inno Park 5G Technology Application Forum 2019" held in September 2019. In addition, the Company was invited to participate in the "12th International IoT Exhibition", which enhanced our image in the international IoT community. As of the end of the third quarter, we have entered into various leasing agreements with tenants in Inno Park, equivalent to approximately 33,031 square meters.

The Preliminary Round for the Third Guangming District Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition

In July 2019, the Preliminary Round for the Third Guangming District Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition, lasting for three days, was hosted by Nam Tai and successfully concluded in Nam Tai Inno Park. This is a high-level innovation competition, part of "China (Shenzhen) Innovation and Entrepreneurship Competition". The competition has attracted enthusiastic participation from start-ups, scientific research teams and entrepreneurs in emerging industries including electronic information, internet and mobile internet, biomedicine, advanced manufacturing, new energy, energy conservation and environmental protection, and new materials, which is conducive to promoting the industrial structure upgrading and economic development of the region.

Nam Tai Inno Park Debut at the 12th International IoT Exhibition

In July 2019, Nam Tai was invited to participate in the 12th International IoT Exhibition as an exhibitor. Founded in 2009, the International IoT Exhibition is the world's first professional IoT exhibition and one of the largest high-level professional IoT exhibitions in China. At the exhibition, the Company demonstrated Inno Park's recent development and operation concept, effectively promoting itself among the IoT community.

The China Hi-Tech Fair ("CHTF") - Nam Tai Inno Park 5G Technology Application Forum 2019

In September 2019, the CHTF - Nam Tai Inno Park 5G Technology Application Forum (Shenzhen) 2019 was held in Nam Tai Inno Park, Guangming District, Shenzhen. Guided by China International High-tech Achievements Exchange Center and organized by Nam Tai, the forum aims to promote 5G industry development in Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area through in-depth discussion and exchange on 5G technology development and innovative application. Executives from Shenzhen Unicom, Shenzhen Huixin Communication Technology Co., Ltd., the VC Alliance of Great Bay Area, Shenzhen Tengshi Technology Co., Ltd., Beijing Shengxin Technology Co., Ltd. and other enterprises attended the forum.

Progress on Nam Tai Technology Center

After obtaining the construction permit in July 2019, Nam Tai Technology Center officially entered into the stage of main structure construction. This is the second project under construction by Nam Tai, reflecting that its project development and construction capability are further strengthened after the transformation of the Company. At present, we are carrying out earthworks and basement construction. With respect to the additional land premium for Nam Tai Technology Center, we have paid approximately US$48.4 million in September 2019. The Company is applying for the land use right certificate of Nam Tai Technology Center, which is expected to be obtained in the fourth quarter of 2019.

Update on Nam Tai Inno Valley

As at September 30, 2019, the percentage of leased space at the Nam Tai Inno Valley ("Inno Valley") was maintained at approximately 90%, equivalent to approximately 33,626 square meters. In the third quarter of 2019, we continued to improve the operation level of Inno Valley and provide industrial support services for the enterprise tenants in the park. In this quarter, we held three industrial events in Inno Valley, including the "Senior Economist Training" held in July 2019, the theme salon of "Policy Interpretation, Resources Sharing" held in August 2019, and the "Equity Financing Solution Forum for Enterprise" held in September 2019.

Other Project Expansion

In terms of project expansion, after comprehensive evaluation of the Company's development needs and market opportunities, the Company determined to expand project resources and strengthen the capability of sustainable development. In September 2019, we entered into a leasing agreement with a third party and rented contracted floor area of approximately 7,500 square meters that will be transformed to be a technology park. The park, which is re-named as "Nam Tai • Tang Xi Technology Park", is located in the west of Bao'an Avenue in Shenzhen. The park will aim to target enterprise tenants in light production, intelligent product production and assembly, intelligent management service, among other industries. The project will realize industrial complementarity and resource sharing with Nam Tai Technology Center and Inno Valley, and also enable the Company to export the operation model of technology parks.

As for our Wuxi facilities, we leased out the facilities and delivered them to a third party in February 2019. The facilities are under renovation by the third party and open for leasing.

In September 2019, Nam Tai Investment (Shenzhen) Co., Ltd., a wholly-owned indirect subsidiary of the Company, has obtained the qualification certificate for real estate development enterprise. This indicates its possession of the qualification for development and construction of commercial housings. After the enterprise obtains the pre-sale permit and meets certain conditions, it may be allowed to pre-sell the project buildings. Nam Tai will select appropriate means of sales in light of development of the projects and market conditions.

Policy Update

In terms of policy, the Central People's Government of China and the State Council issued the "Opinions on Supporting Shenzhen to Build a Pilot Demonstration Area of Socialism with Chinese Characteristics" (the "Opinions") in August 2019. The Opinions position Shenzhen as the example for quality development, a city ruled by law, a model of urban civilization, a benchmark for people's well-being and a pioneer of sustainable development. The goal is to build Shenzhen into a top city in the world by 2025, in terms of economic strength and development quality, with first-class research and development investment intensity and industrial innovation ability, significant improvement in cultural soft power, international advanced public service level and ecological environment quality, and will become a modern international innovative city. By the middle of this century, Shenzhen will become a global benchmark city with outstanding competitiveness, innovation and influence. Nam Tai will actively seize growth opportunities while strengthening our brand and operation performance as a technology park operator. 

Change of Management

The Board of Directors of the Company has approved Mr. Julian Lin ("Mr. Lin")'s departure as President and General Counsel of the Company, effective on October 28, 2019. Since February 2018, Mr. Ying Chi Kwok has been serving as our chief executive officer, which functions include those of president, and, therefore, the Company does not plan to search for a replacement for the role of President.

Potential Risks in Our Business

China-United States trade frictions may continue to adversely impact China's economy, especially for technology companies. Since we mainly operate in China and the potential tenants of our technology parks are mostly domestic technology enterprises, the China-US trade frictions may potentially affect our operations, property sales and leasing to some degree. This potentially may also lead to suspension, reduction or even cancelation of the leasing or purchasing of properties, including dormitories and office buildings.  

In 2018 and 2019, Shenzhen has successively issued a number of policies that may ease the negative impact of the China-US trade frictions, comprising the Special Fund Management Reform Program for Strategic Emerging Industries ("Reform Program") in May 2018 and the relevant operating instructions in February 2019 by Development and Reform Commission of Shenzhen Municipality. The Reform Program proposed additional credit loans, guaranteed loans, post-industrial subsidies and other supporting plans, while the implementation guideline has been optimized and adjusted in terms of the procedures of project application, management tracking, evaluation and acceptance.

The real estate industry in China is subject to government regulations, including measures that are intended to curtail significant price fluctuations and property speculation. The regulations at both central government level and local government level change from time to time, to stimulate or restrain the development of the real estate market, and it is difficult to foresee the timing or direction of regulatory changes. Relevant regulations may affect our business performance and cause uncertainty. On May 27, 2019, Bureau of Housing and Urban-Rural Development in Shenzhen had issued the consultation draft of the Measures on Standardizing Industrial Buildings Leasing Market and Stabilizing Leasing Pricing ("Consultation Draft") which became effective with revisions on October 1, 2019. The formal implementation contains measures which principally aim at limiting the qualifications of potential tenants, increasing the supply of leasable space for qualified tenants, and enhancing industrial supervisions. The Consultation Draft in May stipulated that the tenants of industrial buildings could only be enterprises rather than natural persons. The formal implementation of the measures relaxed restrictions on the types of tenants: (1) for industrial buildings, the tenants expanded from enterprises to also include individual entrepreneurs; (2) for supporting dormitories, the tenants expanded from enterprises within the industrial park and tax-paying enterprises in the surrounding areas to include also the employees of these enterprises. The measures may still adversely affect the market expectations of tenants and financial institutions for industrial buildings and bring negative impacts on our operations.

Property development is capital intensive with significant capital resources required for the development of our technology parks. Our ability to finance the capital expenditures is subject to a number of risks and contingencies. Certain PRC laws and regulations that govern financing policies of the financial institutions with respect to the property development sector impose stringent requirements on providing loans to property development enterprises. We cannot assure that the PRC government will not further tighten such restrictions. In the financing package we entered into with Bank of China in September 2019, certain requirements have to be met before the loan can be drawn. If we fail to meet the requirements, we may have to fund the development of the project with our own capital or other means in the absence of the loan drawdown.

As of January 30, 2019, Kaisa Group ("Kaisa") as one of our major shareholders, held about 24% of the issued common shares of the Company. As requested by Kaisa, the Company has filed the resale registration statement in Form F-3 (the "Statement") on August 9, 2019 for facilitating the registration of relevant shares, which took effect on August 22, 2019. After taking effect, Kaisa may sell all or part of the shares in an issue managed by investment banks or broker dealers through open market transactions, private negotiation transactions, general brokerage transaction or any other means permitted by applicable laws.

As disclosed in the Statement, Kaisa currently has no intention to publicly sell any of the shares covered by the Statement, but in the future may do so from time to time. As a major shareholder of Nam Tai, any possible sale by Kaisa of the shares of Nam Tai in the open market or the perception that the sale will occur in the future may have an adverse impact on the market price of our common stock.

The information contained in, or that can be accessed through, the website mentioned in this announcement does not form part of the announcement.

Notes:

(1)         According to the definition of "Balance Sheet" under the Financial Accounting Standard Board ("FASB") Accounting Standards
Codification ("ASC") 210-10-20, cash equivalents are short-term, highly liquid investments that are readily convertible to cash. Only
investments with original maturities of three months or less when purchased qualify under that definition. Therefore, the fixed deposits
maturing over three months in amount of $
39.4 million as at December 31, 2018 are not classified as cash and cash equivalents but are
separately disclosed as short
-term investments in the balance sheet ,and we have no short-term investment as at September 30,2019. 

(2)         Capitalization on project investment was $24.2 million for the third quarter of 2019 and accumulated project investment was $224.0
million up to September 30, 2019
.

(3)         Accumulated other comprehensive loss represented conversion differences in foreign currency statements.
