I.

FACT SHEET OF THE COMPANY'S INDUSTRY AND PRINCIPAL ACTIVITIES DURING THE REPORTING PERIOD

Principal Activities and Business Model

(2)

Industry Fact Sheet

Being the aorta of the nation's economy, a key infrastructure, a significant project for people's livelihood, the backbone of an integrated transportation system and one of the main means of transportation, the railway is of crucial importance for the nation's economic and social development. Since the State Council of the PRC approved the implementation of the Medium to Long Term Plan for Railway Network Development(《中長期鐵路網規劃》)in 2004, railways in China have experienced exponential development. On the whole, the tight capacity of the Chinese railways has now been alleviated, the bottle neck restriction has been eliminated, and economic and social development needs have been met. However, when benchmarking with the requirements for a new normal of economic developments, other transportation forms and the advanced levels of developed countries, China's railway still faces deficiencies such as incomplete layout, low operational efficiency and rather severe structural conflicts. By the end of 2020, the nationwide railways in operation reached 146,300 kilometers; among which, the high-speed railways in operation ran over 37,900 kilometers. In the first half of 2021, the railways nationwide had achieved a passenger traffic volume of 1.365 billion people, representing a year-on-year increase of 67%; meanwhile, the outbound freight tonnage had reached 2.366 billion tonnes, representing a year-on-year increase of 10.1%.

GENERAL INFORMATION

Guangshen Railway Company Limited (the 'Company') was established as a joint stock limited company in the People's Republic of China (the 'PRC') on 6 March 1996. On the same date, the Company assumed the business operations of certain railroad and other related businesses (collectively the 'Businesses') that had been undertaken previously by its predecessor, Guangshen Railway Company (the 'Predecessor'), certain subsidiaries of the Predecessor; and by Guangzhou Railway (Group) Company (the 'Guangzhou Railway Group') and certain of its subsidiaries prior to the formation of the Company.

The Predecessor was controlled by and was under the administration of the Guangzhou Railway Group. Pursuant to a restructuring agreement entered into between the Guangzhou Railway Group, the Predecessor and the Company in 1996, the Company issued to the Guangzhou Railway Group 100% of its equity interest in the form of 2,904,250,000 ordinary shares (the 'State-owned Domestic Shares') for the exchange of assets and liabilities associated with the operations of the Businesses (the 'Restructuring'). After the Restructuring, the Predecessor changed its name to Guangzhou Railway (Group) Guangshen Railway Enterprise Development Company (the 'GEDC').

In May 1996, the Company issued 1,431,300,000 shares, representing 217,812,000 H Shares ('H Shares') and 24,269,760 American Depositary Shares ('ADSs', one ADS represents 50 H Shares) in a global public offering for cash of approximately RMB4,214,000,000 in order to finance the capital expenditure and working capital requirements of the Company and its subsidiaries (collectively defined as the 'Group').

In December 2006, the Company issued 2,747,987,000 A Shares on the Shanghai Stock Exchange through an initial public offering of shares in order to finance the acquisition of the business and related assets and liabilities associated with the railway transportation business ('Yangcheng Railway Business') of Guangzhou Railway Group Yangcheng Railway Enterprise Development Company ('Yangcheng Railway'), a wholly owned subsidiary of Guangzhou Railway Group which operates a railway line between the cities of Guangzhou and Pingshi in the Southern region of the PRC.

GENERAL INFORMATION (continued)

(i)

According to the Articles of Association of Zengcheng Lihua, the remaining shareholders are all natural persons and none of these individuals holds more than 0.5% equity interest in Zengcheng Lihua. All directors of Zengcheng Lihua were appointed by the Company. After considering all shareholders of Zengcheng Lihua other than the Company are individuals with individual interest holding of less than 0.5% and such individuals do not act in concert, and also all directors of Zengcheng Lihua were appointed by the Company, the directors of the Company consider that the Company has the de facto control over the board and the substantial financial and operating decisions of Zengcheng Lihua.

As at 30 June 2021, the non-wholly owned subsidiaries individually and in aggregate are not significant to the Group. Therefore, financial information of the non-wholly owned subsidiaries is not disclosed.

According to amendment to IFRS 7 for financial instruments that are measured in the balance sheet at fair value, it requires disclosure of fair value measurements by level of following fair value measurement hierarchy:

Quoted prices (unadjusted) in active markets for identical assets or liabilities (level 1).

Inputs other than quoted prices included within level 1 that are observable for the assets or liabilities, either directly (that is, as prices) or indirectly (that is, derived from prices) (level 2).

Inputs for the assets or liabilities that are not based on observable market data (that is, unobservable inputs) (level 3).

As at 30 June 2021, the Group did not have any financial instruments that were measured at fair value except for FVOCI.

ESTIMATES

The preparation of interim financial information requires management to make judgements, estimates and assumptions that affect the application of accounting policies and the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, income and expense. Actual results may differ from these estimates.

In preparing this interim condensed consolidated financial information, the significant judgements made by management in applying the Group's accounting policies and the key sources of estimation uncertainty were the same as those that applied to the consolidated financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2020.

SEGMENT INFORMATION

The chief operating decision-makers have been identified as senior executives. Senior executives review the Group's internal reporting in order to assess performance and allocate resources. The operating segments were determined based on these management reports.

Senior executives evaluate the business from a perspective of revenues and operating results generated from railroad and related business conducted by the Company ('the Railway Transportation Business'). Other segments mainly include on-board catering services, leasing, sales of materials, sale of goods and other businesses related to railway transportation provided by the subsidiaries of the Company. Senior executives assess the performance of the operating segments based on a measure of the profit before income tax. Other information provided, except as noted below, to senior executives is measured in a manner consistent with that in the financial statements.

The segment results for the six months ended 30 June 2021 and 30 June 2020 are as follows:

Reason for delay in obtaining the

ownership certificates

Certificates for buildings under application procedures

1,269,757 980,689

The Group commenced such application procedures with the respective authorities in China by the end of 2017, and the Group's management expects that these procedures would be completed within a short period of time and the ownership certificates will be obtained.

Certain buildings located on the land of which the land use right certificates have not been obtained

47,232 48,103

According to relevant laws and regulations in China, the land use right certificates of the land on which these buildings are located must be obtained before the Group can start the application for the respective housing ownership certificates. As a result, the Group will start to apply for the ownership certificates of these buildings after they have completed the procedures to obtain the land use right certificates.

Certain buildings attached to pieces of land which is held by lease

467,973 489,939

Such land is held by lease under certain operating lease arrangements. Due to the fact that the Group does not have the underlying land use right certificates for such land, therefore, the Group cannot apply for the respective ownership certificates of the buildings constructed on top of it. According to the lease agreements and communication with the leasors, and as confirmed by the Company's legal counsel, the Group possesses the right to use and/or own such buildings without the certificates.

After consultation made with the Company's legal counsel, the directors of the Company consider that there is no legal restriction for the Group to apply for and obtain the ownership certificates of such buildings and it should not lead to any significant adverse impact on the operations of the Group.

(a)

As at 30 June 2021, fixed assets of the Group with an aggregate net book value of approximately RMB353,285,000 (31 December 2020: RMB171,954,000) had been fully depreciated but they were still in use.
