REASONS FOR AND BENEFITS OF THE CAPITAL INVESTMENT

Seesaw Coffee brings refined industry standards such as direct selling, fresh roasting, hand-brewing and so on into the domestic coffee market. At the same time, Seesaw Coffee focuses on maintaining the balance of commercial coffee and specialty coffee for the product structure; Seesaw Coffee also decorates store images according to different environments and target customers to achieve a unified and personalized balance to avoid monotonous store style of commercial coffee, while ensuring a harmonic unity of all stores.

At present, Seesaw Coffee has established a leading brand position in the specialty coffee industry, with a good balance of product structure and a well-established team with experienced in training barista and potential for large-scale expansion.

Coffee industry is a rapid growing industry, and specialty coffee presents the next round of development direction of coffee industry. As mentioned in the Company's circular dated October 29, 2016, the Company intends to invest in the food and beverage industry in order to diversify its existing business portfolio and broaden its source of income and enhance value to the Shareholder. By investing in the Seesaw Coffee Group, the Group could extend its portfolio structure from the food industry into the beverage industry through specialty coffee, which will increase its future returns and profitability. Further, the multi-party collaboration between the portfolio companies of Hony Capital and the Group's platform will create a comprehensive ''food and beverage'' platform, which will provide better return to the Shareholders in the long run.

The Directors are of the view that the terms of the Capital Investment are fair and reasonable, on normal commercial terms and in the interests of the Company and the Shareholders as a whole.
