PROPOSED RIGHTS ISSUE

The Company proposes to raise gross proceeds of up to (i) approximately HK$439.7 million by way of the issue of 196,305,311 Rights Shares (assuming no change in the number of Shares in issue on or before the Record Date); or

  1. approximately HK$453.1 million by way of the issue of 202,282,216 Rights Shares (assuming no change in the number of Shares in issue on or before the Record Date other than the full exercise of outstanding Share Options), at the Subscription Price of HK$2.24 per Rights Share on the basis of one (1) Rights Share for every two (2) existing Shares held on the Record Date. The Rights Issue is only available to the Qualifying Shareholders and will not be extended to the Non-Qualifying Shareholders.

The net proceeds from the Rights Issue after deducting the expenses are estimated to be

  1. approximately HK$433.2 million (assuming no change in the number of Shares in issue on or before the Record Date); or (ii) approximately HK$446.6 million (assuming no change in the number of Shares in issue on or before the Record Date other than the full exercise of outstanding Share Options).

The Company intends to apply the net proceeds from the Rights Issue for the following purposes: (i) to finance future investments in property investments and/or development projects, as at the date of this announcement, no specific investment target has been identified; (ii) to reduce the gearing of the Group by repayment of certain bank borrowings subject to the Group's operating needs; and (iii) for general corporate purposes of the Group.

To qualify for the Rights Issue, a Shareholder must be registered as a member of the Company at the close of business on the Record Date and not be a Non-Qualifying Shareholder. In order to be registered as a member of the Company on the Record Date, all transfer documents of the Shares (together with the relevant share certificate(s)) must be lodged for registration with the Registrar, Tricor Tengis Limited, at Level 54, Hopewell Centre, 183 Queen's Road East, Hong Kong by no later than 4:30 p.m. on Monday, 28 June 2021.

IRREVOCABLE UNDERTAKING OF THE UNDERTAKING COVENANTORS

As at the date of this announcement, Dr. Peter Lam and Wisdoman held 48,802,906 Shares and 114,741,416 Shares, respectively, representing approximately 12.43% and 29.23% of the total issued Shares, respectively.

Pursuant to the Irrevocable Undertaking, Dr. Peter Lam and Wisdoman have provided a joint, several, irrevocable and unconditional undertaking to the Company and the Underwriter, pursuant to which Dr. Peter Lam and Wisdoman have irrevocably undertaken and warranted to the Company and the Underwriter, among other things:

  1. to subscribe for 24,401,453 Rights Shares and 57,370,708 Rights Shares to be provisionally allotted to Dr. Peter Lam and Wisdoman, respectively; and
  2. not to sell, dispose of or transfer, or agree to sell, dispose of or transfer any of the Shares held by them or any one of them from the date of the Irrevocable Undertaking to the date of completion of the Rights Issue.

UNDERWRITING AGREEMENT

On 11 June 2021 (after trading hours), the Company and the Underwriter entered into the Underwriting Agreement, pursuant to which the Underwriter has conditionally agreed to fully underwrite the Underwritten Shares, subject to the terms and conditions set out in the Underwriting Agreement, in particular the fulfilment or waiver (as applicable) of the conditions contained therein. Details of the major terms and conditions of the Underwriting Agreement are set out in the section headed "The Underwriting Agreement" in this announcement.

The Company shall make an application to the Stock Exchange for the listing of, and the permission to deal in, the Rights Shares (in both nil-paid and fully-paid forms) to be allotted and issued pursuant to the Rights Issue.

As the proposed Rights Issue is subject to conditions, it may or may not proceed. Investors are advised to exercise caution when dealing in the Shares.

LISTING RULES IMPLICATION

As the Rights Issue will not increase either the total number of issued Shares or the market capitalisation of the Company by more than 50%, the Rights Issue is not subject to the approval of minority Shareholders in general meeting pursuant to Rule 7.19A of the Listing Rules.

The Company has not conducted any rights issue, open offer or specific mandate placing within the 12-month period immediately preceding the date of this announcement, or prior to such 12-month period where dealing in respect of the Shares issued pursuant thereto commenced within such 12-month period, nor has it issued any bonus securities, warrants or other convertible securities within such 12-month period. The Rights Issue does not result in a theoretical dilution effect of 25% or more on its own.

CLOSURE OF REGISTER OF MEMBERS OF THE COMPANY

The register of members of the Company will be closed from Tuesday, 29 June 2021 to Tuesday, 6 July 2021 (both days inclusive) for determining the entitlements to the Rights Issue during which period no transfer of Shares will be registered.

GENERAL

The Prospectus Documents containing information on the Rights Issue are expected to be despatched to the Qualifying Shareholders on or around Friday, 9 July 2021. The Company will not extend the Rights Issue to the Non-Qualifying Shareholders. The Company will, to the extent permitted under the relevant laws and regulations and reasonably practicable, send the Prospectus to the Non-Qualifying Shareholders for information purposes only but will not send any PAL or EAF to them.

POSSIBLE ADJUSTMENT TO THE SHARE OPTIONS UNDER THE SHARE OPTION SCHEMES

As at the date of this announcement, there are 11,953,809 outstanding Share Options granted by the Company exercisable into 11,953,809 Shares. Pursuant to the terms of the Share Option Schemes, the Rights Issue may lead to adjustments to, among others, the exercise price and/or the number of Shares to be issued upon exercise of the outstanding Share Options under the Share Option Schemes. The Company will notify the holders of such Share Options and the Shareholders by way of announcement (as and when appropriate) regarding adjustments to be made (if any) pursuant to the terms of the Share Option Schemes and such adjustment will be certified by an independent financial adviser or auditors of the Company (as the case may be).

Save for the foregoing, as at the date of this announcement, the Company had no outstanding debt securities, derivatives, options, warrants, convertible securities or other similar securities which are convertible or exchangeable into Shares prior to the Record Date. The Company has no intention to issue or grant any Shares, convertible securities, warrants and/or options on or before the Record Date.

WARNING OF THE RISKS OF DEALING IN THE SHARES AND NIL-PAID RIGHTS SHARES

Shareholders and potential investors of the Company should note that the proposed Rights Issue is conditional upon, among others, the Underwriting Agreement having become unconditional and the Underwriter not having terminated the Underwriting Agreement in accordance with the terms thereof (a summary of which is set out in the sections headed "The Underwriting Agreement - Conditions of the Rights Issue and the Underwriting Agreement" and "The Underwriting Agreement - Termination of the Underwriting Agreement" in this announcement). Accordingly, the Rights Issue may or may not proceed.

Any Shareholder or other person dealing in the existing Shares and/or the nil-paid Rights Shares up to the date on which all the conditions to which the Rights Issue are fulfilled or waived (as applicable) (and the date on which the Underwriter's right of termination of the Underwriting Agreement ceases) will accordingly bear the risk that the Rights Issue may not become unconditional or may not proceed.

Shareholders and potential investors of the Company are advised to exercise caution when dealing in the existing Shares and/or the nil-paid Rights Shares. Any party (including Shareholders and potential investors of the Company) who is in any doubt about his/her/its position or any action to be taken is recommended to consult his/her/its own professional adviser(s).
