Reasons for and benefits of the Transaction

The Project takes the entire Ganzi Prefecture as its key target market, while by leveraging on its prime location in the northwest of Ganzi Prefecture and its equipment advantages, it spreads and develops to the west, north and south of Ganzi Prefecture, covering the intersection of Sichuan, Yunnan, Tibet and Qinghai. In the future, with the Sichuan-Tibet line, it can cover the Sichuan-Tibet Railway. The market region of the Project will mainly cover the entire territory of the Ganzi Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, the southern area of the Aba Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, and Tianquan County and Hanyuan County in the west and south of Ya'an.

In addition, in terms of cement demand for key projects, during the period of ''13th Five- Year Plan'', construction projects were carried out in the northwest area of Sichuan and at the intersection of Sichuan, Yunnan, Tibet and Qinghai, creating a transportation hub. By linking the intersection of Sichuan-Gansu-Qingdao and Sichuan-Yunnan-Tibet and focusing on the construction of highways, national and provincial trunk lines, outbound channels, economic trunk lines and railway, the PRC government planned to accelerate the construction of transportation infrastructure, promote the effective connection of roads, airports and railways, enhance the function of the main transportation hub in Kangding, speed up the construction of secondary transportation hubs in Litang, Daocheng and Ganzi regions, comprehensively improve the standard of roads, strengthen the interconnection with surrounding areas, and improve the backbone network of the Sichuan-Gansu-Qingdao and Sichuan-Yunnan-Tibet intersections, so as to promote better exchanges and integration with surrounding areas, creating a regional comprehensive transportation hub that covers the whole prefecture and the surrounding area. Among them, the Sichuan-Tibet Railway crossing the territory of Ganzi Prefecture is a key project of the national ''13th Five-Year Plan''. The total length of the line is 1,838 kilometers, starting from Chengdu and passing through Ya'an, Ganzi, Qamdo, Nyingchi to Lhasa, with the total investment of approximately 216.6 billion, and it is planned to be completed in 2028. Moreover, Ganzi Prefecture is rich in water resources and hydraulic works are planned to be constructed at Batang Southeast (巴塘東南), Jiulong Sanya (九龍三埡), Litang Chama Ridong (理塘查瑪日 東), Daocheng Eyatong (稻城俄牙同), Daofu Nicuo (道孚尼措), Degwentuo (德格溫拖), Xinlong Tongye (新龍通宵), etc. Meanwhile, three reservoirs, including Litang Duoquhe Reservoir (理塘奪曲河水庫), Shiqu Nixia Town (石渠尼呷鎮) and Odoma Township (俄多 馬鄉), as well as water diversion projects in Litang Mulati (理塘木拉提) and Jiulong County (九龍縣城) will be constructed. These key projects will greatly drive cement demand and increase the gap between supply and demand in the future.

- 9 -

Taking into account the geographical location of the Project in the northwest of Ganzi Prefecture and its equipment advantages and the increased cement supply and demand gap in the northern and western Sichuan region in the future, this investment will provide the Group with a great opportunity to expand its cement business from Shaanxi Province to Ganzi Prefecture, which will benefit the long-term growth and future development plans of the Group and help the Group effectively diversify its geographic investment risks.

The Directors (including the independent non-executive Directors) are of the view that the terms of the Sale and Purchase Agreement (I) and the Sale and Purchase Agreement (II) are on normal commercial terms and fair and reasonable and the Transaction contemplated thereunder is in the interests of the Company and the Shareholders as a whole.
