LETTER FROM THE BOARD

2. BUY-BACK AND ISSUANCE MANDATES

At the annual general meeting of the Company held on 16 June 2020, general mandates were given to the Directors to exercise the powers of the Company to buy back Shares and to issue new Shares respectively. Such mandates will lapse at the conclusion of the Annual General Meeting.

Ordinary resolutions will be proposed at the Annual General Meeting to approve the granting of new general mandates to the Directors:

  1. to buy Shares on the Stock Exchange of an aggregate number of Shares of up to 10% of the aggregate number of Shares in issue on the date of passing of such resolution;
  2. to allot, issue or deal with Shares of an aggregate number of Shares of up to 20% of the aggregate number of Shares in issue on the date of passing of such resolution; and
  3. to extend the Issuance Mandate by an amount representing the aggregate number of Shares bought back by the Company pursuant to and in accordance with the Buy-back Mandate.

As at the Latest Practicable Date, the issued share capital of the Company comprised 1,500,360,150 Shares. Subject to the passing of the ordinary resolution numbered 7 set out in the notice of the Annual General Meeting in respect of the granting of the Issuance Mandate and on the basis that no Shares are issued or bought back by the Company prior to the date of the Annual General Meeting, the Directors would be authorised under the Issuance Mandate to allot, issue or deal with a maximum of 300,072,030 Shares (representing 20% of the Shares in issue as at the Latest Practicable Date) during the period in which the Issuance Mandate remains in force.

The Buy-back Mandate and the Issuance Mandate will continue in force until the conclusion of the next annual general meeting of the Company held after the Annual General Meeting or any earlier date as referred to in ordinary resolutions numbered 7 and 8 set out in the notice of the Annual General Meeting. With reference to the Buy-back Mandate and the Issuance Mandate, the Directors wish to state that they have no immediate plan to buy back or issue any Shares pursuant thereto.

An explanatory statement, as required by the Listing Rules in connection with the Buy- back Mandate and also constituting the memorandum required under section 239 of the Companies Ordinance, is set out in Appendix I to this circular, which contains the information reasonably necessary to enable the Shareholders to make an informed decision on whether or not to support the proposed resolution.

The Buy-back Mandate to be sought from Shareholders is in compliance with the Companies Ordinance and the Listing Rules.

LETTER FROM THE BOARD

3. RE-ELECTION OF RETIRING DIRECTORS AND FURTHER APPOINTMENT OF INDEPENDENT NON-EXECUTIVE DIRECTORS WHO HAVE SERVED FOR MORE THAN NINE YEARS

Pursuant to Article 104(a) of the Articles of Association, Mr. Ke Jian, Dr. Jin Lizuo and Dr. Huan Guocang shall retire by rotation at the Annual General Meeting, and being eligible, offered themselves for re-election at the Annual General Meeting.

Pursuant to the code provision A.4.3 of the Corporate Governance Code as set out in Appendix 14 of the Listing Rules, serving more than nine years could be relevant to the determination of a non-executive director's independence. If an independent non-executive director serves more than nine years, his further appointment should be subject to a separate resolution to be approved by shareholders.

The Board adopts the underlying principles of the Corporate Governance Code regarding tenure of the Board, and seeks to strike an appropriate balance between continuity of experience and refreshment. Although serving on the Board for more than nine years could be relevant to the determination of a non-executive director's independence, the Board recognises that an individual's independence cannot be determined arbitrarily on the basis of a set period of time. The Directors consider that continued tenure brings considerable stability to the Board and the Board has benefited greatly from the presence of individuals who have over time gained valuable insight into the Group and its markets.

Dr. Jin Lizuo and Dr. Huan Guocang have been served as independent non-executive Directors for more than nine years. The Company has received from Dr. Jin and Dr. Huan annual confirmation of independence according to Rule 3.13 of the Listing Rules as at 15 March 2021 and 29 March 2021, respectively. The Board considers that the long service of Dr. Jin and Dr. Huan would not affect their exercise of independent judgement and is satisfied that Dr. Jin and Dr. Huan have the required character, integrity, experience and profound knowledge to continue fulfilling the role of an independent non-executive Director effectively. Resolutions numbered 3 and 4 will be proposed for their re-election at the Annual General Meeting.

Details of the retiring Directors proposed to be re-elected at the Annual General Meeting are set out in Appendix II to this circular.

LETTER FROM THE BOARD

4. ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING AND PROXY ARRANGEMENT

The notice of the Annual General Meeting is set out on pages 14 to 18 of this circular. At the Annual General Meeting, resolutions will be proposed to approve, inter alia, the granting of the Buy-back Mandate, the Issuance Mandate, the extension of the Issuance Mandate by the addition thereto of the number of Shares bought back pursuant to the Buy-back Mandate and the re-election of retiring Directors.

A form of proxy for use at the Annual General Meeting is enclosed with this circular and such form of proxy is also published on the websites of the Stock Exchange (www.hkexnews.hk) and the Company (www.beegl.com.hk). To be valid, the form of proxy must be completed and signed in accordance with the instructions printed thereon and deposited, together with the power of attorney or other authority (if any) under which it is signed or a certified copy of that power of attorney or authority at the Company's Share Registrar, Tricor Tengis Limited, at Level 54, Hopewell Centre, 183 Queen's Road East, Hong Kong, not less than 48 hours before the time appointed for holding the Annual General Meeting (i.e. not later than 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, 8 June 2021) or any adjournment thereof. Form of proxy sent electronically or by any other data transmission process will not be accepted. Completion and delivery of the form of proxy will not preclude you from attending and voting at the Annual General Meeting if you so wish.

Pursuant to Rule 13.39(4) of the Listing Rules, any vote of shareholders at a general meeting must be taken by poll except where the chairman, in good faith, decides to allow a resolution which relates purely to a procedural or administrative matter to be voted on by a show of hand. The Company will announce the results of the poll in the manner prescribed under Rule 13.39(5) of the Listing Rules.

In light of the risks posed by the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pneumonia epidemic, every shareholder or proxy attending the Annual General Meeting is required to wear a surgical face mask throughout the meeting and no refreshment will be served. The Company strongly advises the Shareholders to appoint the chairman of the meeting as their proxy to vote on the resolutions, instead of attending the meeting in person.

5. CLOSURE OF REGISTER OF MEMBERS

For the purpose of determining Shareholders' entitlement to attend the Annual General Meeting, the register of members of the Company will be closed from Monday, 7 June 2021 to Thursday, 10 June 2021 (both days inclusive), during which period no transfer of Shares will be registered. In order to qualify for attending and voting at the Annual General Meeting, all transfers of Shares accompanied by the relevant share certificates must be lodged with the Company's share registrar, Tricor Tengis Limited, Level 54, Hopewell Centre, 183 Queen's Road East, Hong Kong for registration not later than 4:30 p.m. Friday, 4 June 2021.

APPENDIX I

EXPLANATORY STATEMENT ON THE BUY-BACK MANDATE

This Appendix serves as an explanatory statement required to be sent to Shareholders under the Listing Rules in connection with the proposed Buy-back Mandate and also constitutes the memorandum required under section 239 of the Companies Ordinance.

1. REASONS FOR SHARE BUY-BACK

The Directors believe that the granting of the Buy-back Mandate is in the interests of the Company and the Shareholders.

Buy-backs of Shares may, depending on the market conditions and funding arrangements at the time, lead to an enhancement of the net asset value per Share and/or earnings per Share. The Directors are seeking the granting of the Buy-back Mandate to give the Company the flexibility to do so if and when appropriate. The number of Shares to be bought back on any occasion and the price and other terms upon which the same are bought back will be decided by the Directors at the relevant time, having regard to the circumstances then pertaining.

2. SHARE CAPITAL

As at the Latest Practicable Date, the issued share capital of the Company comprised 1,500,360,150 Shares.

Subject to the passing of the ordinary resolution numbered 8 set out in the notice of the Annual General Meeting in respect of the granting of the Buy-back Mandate and on the basis that no Shares are issued or bought back by the Company prior to the date of the Annual General Meeting, the Directors would be authorised under the Buy-back Mandate to buy back a maximum of 150,036,015 Shares (representing 10% of the Shares in issue as at the Latest Practicable Date) during the period in which the Buy-back Mandate remains in force.

3. FUNDING OF BUY-BACKS

In buying back Shares, the Company may only apply funds legally available for such purposes in accordance with the Articles of Association, the laws of Hong Kong and the Listing Rules. Buy-backs pursuant to the Buy-back Mandate will be made out of internal funds legally permitted to be utilised in this connection, including the funds otherwise available for dividend or distribution or the proceeds of a fresh issue of Shares made for such purpose.

- 8 -

APPENDIX I

EXPLANATORY STATEMENT ON THE BUY-BACK MANDATE

4. IMPACT OF BUY-BACKS

There is no material adverse impact on the working capital or gearing position of the Company (as compared with the position disclosed in the audited financial statements contained in the annual report of the Company for the year ended 31 December 2020) in the event that the Buy- back Mandate was to be carried out in full at any time during the proposed buy-back period.

5. EFFECT OF TAKEOVERS CODE

If, on the exercise of the power to buy back Shares pursuant to the Buy-back Mandate, a Shareholder's proportionate interest in the voting rights of the Company increases, such increase will be treated as an acquisition for the purposes of the Takeovers Code. Accordingly, a Shareholder, or group of Shareholders acting in concert, could obtain or consolidate control of the Company and become obliged to make a mandatory offer in accordance with Rule 26 of the Takeovers Code for all the Shares not already owned by such Shareholder or group of Shareholders.

The Directors are not aware of any consequences which may arise under the Takeover Code as a result of any purchase to be made under the Buy-back Mandate.

6. GENERAL

None of the Directors or, to the best of their knowledge having made all reasonable enquiries, any of their respective associates (as defined in the Listing Rules) have any present intention to sell any Shares to the Company in the event that the granting of the Buy-back Mandate is approved by the Shareholders.

The Company has not been notified by any connected persons (as defined in the Listing Rules) of the Company that they have a present intention to sell any Shares to the Company, or that they have undertaken not to sell any Shares held by them to the Company in the event that the granting of the Buy-back Mandate is approved by the Shareholders.

The Directors have undertaken to the Stock Exchange to exercise the power of the Company to make buy-backs of Shares pursuant to the Buy-back Mandate in accordance with the Listing Rules and the laws of Hong Kong.
