CONTINUING CONNECTED TRANSACTIONS

AND

REVISION OF ANNUAL CAPS FOR SETTLEMENT AND DEPOSIT

SERVICES COOPERATION AGREEMENTS

On 8 November 2019, Zhongshan Energy (a subsidiary of the Company) and GDH Finance entered into the Zhongshan Energy Cooperation Agreement pursuant to which GDH Finance has been engaged to settle, at the instruction of Zhongshan Energy Group, outstanding invoices issued to Zhongshan Energy Group with available funds temporarily deposited by Zhongshan Energy Group from time to time according to its business needs and at its discretion in current account(s) opened with GDH Finance.

Since certain applicable percentage ratios for the purpose of Chapter 14A of the Listing Rules in respect of the maximum daily balance of deposits placed by Zhongshan Energy Group with GDH Finance (including accrued interests payable by GDH Finance) under the Zhongshan Energy Cooperation Agreement exceed 0.1% but are less than 5%, the Transaction is subject to the reporting and announcement requirements, but is exempt from the independent shareholders' approval requirement under Rule 14A.76(2) of the Listing Rules.

In addition to the Zhongshan Energy Cooperation Agreement, GDTDS (a subsidiary of the Company) had also entered into the GDTDS Cooperation Agreement with GDH Finance, the details of which are contained in the announcement of the Company dated 2 November 2018. A summary of the particulars of the GDTDS Cooperation Agreement is also set out in this announcement.

Each of the transactions contemplated under the Settlement and Deposit Services Cooperation Agreements (comprising the Zhongshan Energy Cooperation Agreement and the GDTDS Cooperation Agreement) constitutes the provision of financial assistance by the Group to GDH Finance and a continuing connected transaction of the Company under the Listing Rules.

1

The Settlement and Deposit Services Cooperation Agreements have been aggregated for Listing Rules purposes on the basis that they all relate to financial services provided by GDH Finance to the Group.

The aggregate annual cap of maximum daily balance of deposits placed by GDTDS Group and Zhongshan Energy Group with GDH Finance (including accrued interests payable by GDH Finance) during the term of the Settlement and Deposit Services Cooperation Agreements will be RMB300,000,000 for each of the financial years ending 31 December 2019 and 2020. As the highest annual cap for the aforesaid two financial years, which amounts to RMB300,000,000 (equivalent to approximately HK$333,330,000), exceeds 0.1% but is less than 5% of certain applicable percentage ratios pursuant to Rule 14.07 of the Listing Rules, the transactions as contemplated under the Settlement and Deposit Services Cooperation Agreements are subject to the reporting and announcement requirements, but are exempt from the independent shareholders' approval requirement under Rule 14A.76(2) of the Listing Rules.

The Company will comply with the annual review requirements under Rules 14A.55 to 14A.57 of the Listing Rules in relation to the Settlement and Deposit Services Cooperation Agreements.

This announcement sets out, amongst other things, the details concerning the Zhongshan Energy Cooperation Agreement, including the background and the reasons for entering into the same, the revised annual caps and how these were determined.

Term:

A f i x ed t e rm o f on e ye a r f rom 8 Nov e m be r 2 01 9 t o 7

November 2020

Services:

GDH Finance will settle, at the instruction of Zhongshan Energy

available funds temporarily deposited by Zhongshan Energy Group

from time to time according to its business needs and at its discretion

in current account(s) opened with GDH Finance.

Deposit Interests:

The rates at which interest will accrue on the Agreed Deposit placed

by Zhongshan Energy Group with GDH Finance under the

Zhongshan Energy Cooperation Agreement will be 50% higher than

the RMB Agreed Deposit Rate offered by financial institutions as

announced by People's Bank of China from time to time, subject to

amendment between the parties upon change of the relevant

regulatory policies.

Service fees:

All service fees on wire transfers, account management and

confirmation of balance will be waived by GDH Finance.

Annual caps:

The maximum daily balance of deposits placed by Zhongshan

Energy Group with GDH Finance (including accrued interests

taken into account the historical daily settlement amounts of the

Zhongshan Energy Group in 2017 and 2018 as well as the future

development trend of the coal power industry.

GDH Finance will provide the settlement services to Zhongshan

GDTDS COOPERATION AGREEMENT

Reference is made to the announcement of the Company dated 2 November 2018 in relation to the continuing connected transaction under a settlement and deposit services cooperation agreement.

On 2 November 2018, GDTDS (a subsidiary of the Company) and GDH Finance entered into the GDTDS Cooperation Agreement pursuant to which GDH Finance has been engaged to settle, at the instruction of GDTDS Group, outstanding invoices issued to GDTDS Group with available funds temporarily deposited by GDTDS Group from time to time according to its business needs and at its discretion in current account(s) opened with GDH Finance for a fixed term expiring on 1 November 2020. The maximum daily balance of deposits placed by GDTDS Group with GDH Finance (including accrued interests payable by GDH Finance) during the term of the GDTDS Cooperation Agreement must not exceed the cap of RMB200,000,000 (equivalent to approximately HK$222,220,000) for each of the two financial years ending 31 December 2019 and 2020. Please refer to the announcement of the Company dated 2 November 2018 for further details.

REASONS FOR AND BENEFITS OF ENTERING INTO THE ZHONGSHAN ENERGY COOPERATION AGREEMENT AND AGGREGATE ANNUAL CAPS

Zhongshan Energy Group requires efficient and reliable settlement services to ensure normal functioning of its daily operation. As GDH Finance is familiar with the business operations of Zhongshan Energy Group, it can offer customized settlement services tailored for the business needs of Zhongshan Energy Group in a more efficient manner.

The deposit services under the Zhongshan Energy Cooperation Agreement are on normal commercial terms and the deposit interest rates offered by GDH Finance to Zhongshan Energy Group are equal to or more favorable than those offered by commercial banks in the PRC for comparable deposits. The deposit services under the Zhongshan Energy Cooperation Agreement, which are primarily to facilitate the settlement services, are therefore expected to enable Zhongshan Energy Group to use its funds more effectively through receiving stable interest income.

The Settlement and Deposit Services Cooperation Agreements (comprising the Zhongshan Energy Cooperation Agreement and the GDTDS Cooperation Agreement) have been aggregated for Listing Rules purposes on the basis that they all relate to financial services provided by GDH Finance to the Group. The aggregate annual caps for the maximum daily balance of deposits placed by GDTDS Group and Zhongshan Energy Group with GDH Finance (including accrued interests payable by GDH Finance) during the term of the Settlement and Deposit Services Cooperation Agreements for the two financial years ending 31 December 2019 and 2020 will be as follows:

The Directors (including the independent non-executive Directors) are of the view that the Zhongshan Energy Cooperation Agreement was entered into in the ordinary and usual course of business of the Group, on normal commercial terms or better and that the terms of the Zhongshan Energy Cooperation Agreement (including the annual cap of the maximum daily balance of deposits (including accrued interests payable by GDH Finance) for the years from 2019 to 2020 as agreed under the Zhongshan Energy Cooperation Agreement) are fair and reasonable under the then prevailing market conditions and are in the interests of the Company and its shareholders as a whole.

Mr. HOU Wailin and Mr. CAI Yong, being Directors, are also directors of Guangdong Holdings. Mr. LI Wai Keung, a Director, is also a director of GDH Finance. All of the abovenamed Directors present at the meeting of the Board were not counted in the quorum and did not vote on the Directors' resolutions approving, inter alia, the entering into of the Zhongshan Energy Cooperation Agreement and the aggregate annual caps of the maximum daily balance of deposits (including accrued interests) under the Settlement and Deposit Services Cooperation Agreements for the two years from 2019 to 2020. Save as disclosed above, no other Directors have any material interest in the Zhongshan Energy Cooperation Agreement.

CONNECTED PERSONS

Guangdong Holdings is the ultimate controlling shareholder of the Company, which holds the entire issued share capital of GDH. GDH in turn is the immediate controlling shareholder of the Company, holding approximately 56.49% of the issued shares of the Company as at the date of this announcement.

Accordingly, Guangdong Holdings is a connected person (as defined in the Listing Rules) of the Company. GDH Finance (being a wholly-owned subsidiary and thus an associate of Guangdong Holdings as defined in the Listing Rules) is also a connected person of the Company. Therefore, each of the transactions contemplated under the Settlement and Deposit Services Cooperation Agreements constitutes the provision of financial assistance by the Group to GDH Finance and a continuing connected transaction of the Company under the Listing Rules.

LISTING RULES IMPLICATIONS

Since certain applicable percentage ratios for the purpose of Chapter 14A of the Listing Rules in respect of the maximum daily balance of deposits placed by Zhongshan Energy Group with GDH Finance (including accrued interests payable by GDH Finance) under the Zhongshan Energy Cooperation Agreement exceed 0.1% but are less than 5%, the Transaction is subject to the reporting and announcement requirements, but is exempt from the independent shareholders' approval requirement under Rule 14A.76(2) of the Listing Rules.

The Settlement and Deposit Services Cooperation Agreements have been aggregated for Listing Rules purposes on the basis that they all relate to financial services provided by GDH Finance to the Group.

The aggregate annual cap of maximum daily balance of deposits placed by GDTDS Group and Zhongshan Energy Group with GDH Finance (including accrued interests payable by GDH Finance) during the term of the Settlement and Deposit Services Cooperation Agreements will be RMB300,000,000 for each of the financial years ending 31 December 2019 and 2020. As the highest annual cap for the aforesaid two financial years, which amounts to RMB300,000,000 (equivalent to approximately HK$333,330,000), exceeds 0.1% but is less than 5% of certain applicable percentage ratios pursuant to Rule 14.07 of the Listing Rules, the transactions as contemplated under the Settlement and Deposit Services Cooperation Agreements are subject to the reporting and announcement requirements, but are exempt from the independent shareholders' approval requirement under Rule 14A.76(2) of the Listing Rules.

The Company will comply with the annual review requirements under Rules 14A.55 to 14A.57 of the Listing Rules in relation to the Settlement and Deposit Services Cooperation Agreements.
