REVISION OF ANNUAL CAPS

AND

SUPPLEMENTAL AGREEMENT TO

THE 2018-2020 CKEM MASTER AGREEMENT

REVISION OF ANNUAL CAPS FOR THE 2018-2020 CKEM MASTER AGREEMENT

Reference is made to the 2017 Announcement in relation to, among other things, the relevant details of and the CCTs under (a) the 2018-2020 CKEM Master Agreement entered into between the CK Subsidiaries and CKEM and (b) the 2018-2020 Kawasaki Master Agreement entered into between the CK Subsidiaries and Kawasaki HI, respectively.

Due to the increasing demand in FY2019 and FY2020 in the products and services provided by the CK Subsidiaries and CKEM under the 2018-2020 CKEM Master Agreement, in particular, (i) main components for use in the construction of grate furnace as a result of the increase in number of grate furnace projects undertaken by the CK Subsidiaries and (ii) the cost of processing of extrusion rolls as a result of the increase in labour cost and raw material costs. The Board anticipates that the Existing Annual Caps (CKEM) would not be sufficient to meet the expected transaction amounts under the 2018-2020 CKEM Master Agreement for FY2019 and FY2020.

As both Kawasaki HI and CKEM are connected persons at the subsidiary level of the Company, pursuant to Rule 14A.101 of the Listing Rules, the transactions contemplated under the 2018-2020 Master Agreements (as amended by the 2018-2020 CKEM Master Agreement) are only subject to announcement and reporting requirements, and are exempt from the circular, independent financial advice and shareholders' approval requirements under Chapter 14A of the Listing Rules.

INTRODUCTION

Reference is made to the 2017 Announcement in relation to, among other things, the 2018- 2020 Master Agreements comprising, (a) the 2018-2020 CKEM Master Agreement entered into between the CK Subsidiaries and CKEM and (b) the 2018-2020 Kawasaki Master Agreement entered into between the CK Subsidiaries and Kawasaki HI. Capitalised terms used herein shall, unless the context requires otherwise, have the same meanings as defined in the 2017 Announcement.

Both of the 2018-2020 Master Agreements had a term commencing on 1 January 2018 and expiring on 31 December 2020. Pursuant to the 2018-2020 CKEM Master Agreement, the CK Subsidiaries agreed to supply fragmentary material and processing services to CKEM, while CKEM agreed to supply certain equipment and products to the CK Subsidiaries. Pursuant to the 2018-2020 Kawasaki Master Agreement, the CK Subsidiaries and Kawasaki HI agreed to (i) provide to the other party certain design services and technical assistance; and (ii) supply to the other party equipment, parts and products related to, among other things, residual heat power generation and garbage disposal.

As mentioned in the 2017 Announcement, Kawasaki HI holds 49% equity interest in each of the CK Subsidiaries, all being indirect non-wholly owned subsidiaries of the Company. And CKEM is a jointly controlled entity held by Kawasaki HI and Conch Cement in equal share.

For the reasons set out in the section headed ''Reasons for and benefits of the revision of annual caps and the entering into the 2018-2020 CKEM Supplemental Master Agreement'' below, the Board proposes to revise the Existing Annual Caps (CKEM) to the Revised Annual Caps (CKEM) in respect of the CCTs contemplated under the 2018-2020 CKEM Master Agreement.

REVISION OF EXISTING ANNUAL CAPS (CKEM)

Existing Annual Caps (CKEM) and Revised Annual Caps (CKEM)

Due to the increasing demand in FY2019 and FY2020 in the products and services provided by the CK Subsidiaries and CKEM under the 2018-2020 CKEM Master Agreement, in particular, (i) main components for use in the construction of grate furnace as a result of the increase in number of grate furnace projects undertaken by the CK Subsidiaries and (ii) the cost of processing of extrusion rolls as a result of the increase in labour cost and raw material costs. The Board anticipates that the Existing Annual Caps (CKEM) would not be sufficient to meet the expected transaction amounts under the 2018-2020 CKEM Master Agreement for FY2019 and FY2020.

The Board therefore proposes to revise the Existing Annual Caps (CKEM) to the Revised Annual Caps (CKEM) for FY2019 and FY2020 as set out in the table below:

2018-2020 CKEM Master Agreement

In arriving at the Revised Annual Caps (CKEM), the Company has taken into account the following factors:

  1. the historical transaction amounts of the transactions with CKEM (including but not limited to the transaction volume of fragmentary materials and extrusion rolls processing service under the 2018-2020 CKEM Master Agreement for FY2015, FY2016, FY2017, FY2018 and the eight months ended 31 August 2019;
  2. the Group's consolidated production and operation plans for 2019 and 2020; and
  3. the estimated transaction amount after taking into consideration the business needs of the Group in the four months ending 31 December 2019 and FY2020.

The Board confirms that, as at the date of this announcement, the Existing Annual Caps (CKEM) for FY2019 have not been exceeded, and that it is not necessary to revise the Existing Annual Caps (Kawasaki) under the 2018-2020 Kawasaki Master Agreement.

2018-2020 CKEM SUPPLEMENTAL MASTER AGREEMENT

On 26 September 2019, the Group (through the CK Subsidiaries) entered into the 2018-2020 CKEM Supplemental Master Agreement with CKEM to amend the 2018-2020 CKEM Master Agreement for the purpose of revising the Existing Annual Caps (CKEM) to the Revised Annual Caps (CKEM). For further details of the Revised Annual Caps (CKEM), please refer to the section headed ''Revision of Existing Annual Caps (CKEM)'' in this announcement.

The 2018-2020 CKEM Supplemental Master Agreement shall be effective from 26 September 2019.

REASONS FOR AND BENEFITS OF THE REVISION OF ANNUAL CAPS AND THE ENTERING INTO THE 2018-2020 CKEM SUPPLEMENTAL MASTER AGREEMENT

Due to the rapid development of the Group's business in the environmental protection segment, the number of the Group's environmental protection projects under construction has increased significantly and the environmental protection equipment manufacturing projects undertaken by the CK Subsidiaries has increased accordingly. Taking into account, among other factors, the quality and price of the products that CKEM will provide and its research and development capabilities, the Board are of the view that bulk procurement of the main components for construction in grate furnace projects from CKEM can provide the Group with bargaining advantage, thereby lower the procurement cost and enhance the competitiveness of the Group's products.

The Directors (including the independent non-executive Directors) are of the view that the 2018-2020 CKEM Supplemental Master Agreement and the Revised Annual Caps (CKEM) are fair and reasonable and were entered into in the ordinary and usual course of business of the Group, and in the interests of the Company and the Shareholders as a whole.

GENERAL
