LISTING RULES IMPLICATIONS

Eminence is a non-wholly owned subsidiary of Easyknit. As City China and Lion Capital are indirect wholly-owned subsidiaries of Eminence, City China and Lion Capital are in turn also indirect non-wholly owned subsidiaries of Easyknit.

As one or more of the applicable percentage ratios (as defined under the Listing Rules) for Easyknit in respect of the Deed of Settlement exceed(s) 5% but is/are less than 25% pursuant to Rule 14.07 of the Listing Rules, the Deed of Settlement constitutes a discloseable transaction for Easyknit under Rule 14.06(2) of the Listing Rules and is therefore subject to the reporting and announcement requirements under Chapter 14 of the Listing Rules.

As one or more of the applicable percentage ratios (as defined under the Listing Rules) for Eminence in respect of the Deed of Settlement exceed(s) 25% but is/are less than 100% pursuant to Rule 14.07 of the Listing Rules, the Deed of Settlement constitutes a major transaction for Eminence under Rule 14.06(3) of the Listing Rules and is therefore subject to the reporting, announcement and the Eminence Shareholders' approval requirements under Chapter 14 of the Listing Rules.

Pursuant to Rule 14.44 of the Listing Rules, in lieu of a resolution to be passed at a general meeting of Eminence, a written approval of the Deed of Settlement has been obtained from Ace Winner, a substantial Eminence Shareholder holding 484,538,175 Eminence Shares, representing approximately 52.01% of the issued Eminence Shares as at the date of this joint announcement.
