Consideration

The aggregate consideration for the six vessels to be constructed under the Shipbuilding Contracts is US$126 million (equivalent to approximately HK$976.5 million) and was determined after arm's length negotiations between the parties with reference to the market prices for the construction of new vessels of similar size in the open market as determined by the Directors. The Directors, including the independent non-executive Directors, are of the view that the terms of the Shipbuilding Contracts were concluded after arm's length negotiations, under normal commercial terms, and are fair and reasonable and in the interest of the Company and the Shareholders as a whole.

Payment of the consideration will be in stages in accordance with progress of the construction of the respective vessel. It is expected that the consideration under the Shipbuilding Contracts will be satisfied by the Company by its internal resources and/or through external financing.

Options for six additional vessels

At the same time of the entering into of the Shipbuilding Contracts, SITC Shipowning and the Sellers have also entered into option contracts for six additional vessels which are exercisable at the discretion of SITC Shipowning. No premium would need to be paid by SITC Shipowning for entering into of the option contracts. For the options for the six additional vessels, the Company may exercise such options in three (3) separate tranches and for two (2) vessels at one time. The first tranche of option is exercisable within five(5) months upon the entering of the Shipbuilding Contracts, and the remaining two tranches are exercisable within five(5) months period upon the previous tranche of option is being exercised. The Company will comply with the requirements of the Listing Rules if the options are exercised or terminated.

REASONS FOR THE CONSTRUCTION

The Company is one of Asia's leading shipping logistics companies that provides integrated transportation and logistics solutions.

- 4 -

The New Construction will enable the Company to expand its self-owned fleet of container vessels to meet the increase in demand for the Company's services. Given that the aggregate consideration for the New Construction was determined based on arm's length negotiations by reference to the open market prices for the construction of vessels of similar size, the Directors (including the independent non-executive Directors) consider the terms of the New Construction were on normal commercial terms, are fair and reasonable so far as the Company and the Shareholders are concerned, and the New Construction is in the interests of the Company and the Shareholders as a whole.

IMPLICATIONS UNDER THE LISTING RULES

As the applicable percentage ratios under Rule 14.07 of the Listing Rules in respect of the New Construction is more than 5% and all applicable percentage ratios are less than 25%, the New Construction constitutes a discloseable transaction for the Company and is subject to the notification and announcement requirements pursuant to Chapter 14 of the Listing Rules.
