ANNOUNCEMENT OF 2020 ANNUAL RESULTS, FINAL DIVIDEND,

RECORD DATE AND CLOSURE OF REGISTER OF MEMBERS

CHAIRMAN'S STATEMENT

Dear Shareholders,

The outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted the global and Hong Kong economy throughout 2020. Despite the decline in our leasing profit due to drastic hit on hospitality business and gradual weakening of office leasing market, the Group has booked sales profit upon handover of our accumulated residential units sold at The Carmel in 2020. As a result, we managed to deliver a core consolidated profit attributable to shareholders of HK$456 million in 2020, slightly higher than HK$424 million in 2019, excluding downward fair value adjustment on investment properties and financial instruments.

However, fair value of our hospitality and office properties as well as financial instruments continued being marked down due to uncertain outlook amid economic downturn and interest rate drop. As a result, the Group reported net fair value loss of HK$1,324 million and a total consolidated loss attributable to shareholders of HK$674 million for the year ended 31 December 2020. Loss per share was HK$0.50.

The Board of Directors has recommended a final dividend of HK21.0 cents per share.

Together with the interim dividend of HK6.0 cents per share, total dividends for the year will be HK27.0 cents per share, same as last year.

Supported by low interest rate, demand from first-time local home buyers remained solid in the second half of 2020. Capturing such demand, the Group continued to sell our three

"Upper Gold Coast series" residential units, and launched the sale of remaining house units of The Carmel in January and the pre-sale of apartment units of OMA by the Sea in May. As of 31 December 2020, around 97% of units of The Carmel were sold and mostly handed over to buyers, and over 70% and 80% of units of OMA by the Sea and OMA OMA were presold respectively. Meanwhile, in response to the weak sentiment in the high-endresidential property market, the Group continues to put the unsold units of Le Cap and La Vetta on leasing.

Starting from the second quarter of 2020, office leasing market in Hong Kong and London have been affected by slowdown in office space demand and downsizing of existing tenants in industries badly hit by the pandemic, leading to gradual decline in occupancy and rental rates. As a result, the Group suffered a slight drop in leasing profit and mark down in asset valuation in 2020.

In February 2021, to further expand and diversify our investment portfolio for recurring leasing income, we acquired a 21% interest in 66 Shoe Lane, a Grade A office building in a prime business hub on the western edge of The City of London, which office space is fully leased to a global Big Four accounting and professional services firm.

Suffering from global travel restrictions, our hospitality business has recorded an unprecedented operating loss and significant mark down in asset valuation in 2020, with drastic decline in both occupancy rate and average room rate of our Lanson Place hotels in Hong Kong and Kuala Lumpur.

Foundational work at the Gage Street/Graham Street comprehensive development in Central continued to progress. This project consists of a Grade A office tower, a hotel, retail units and open public spaces, and is expected to transform the old urban landscape in the prime central business and entertainment district in the future.

Management will continue to monitor the impact of the pandemic on our business performance and cash flow. In view of the economic downturn, the Group has tightened our bonus for 2020 and suspended salary adjustment in 2021 for all our employees. Taking this opportunity, I would like to express my gratitude and appreciation to our employees for their understanding and support to keep our operations running smoothly amid the pandemic.

I would also like to express my gratitude and appreciation to my fellow Board members, business partners, colleagues and stakeholders as a whole for their unreserved support during this challenging time.

Cheng Wai Chee, Christopher

Chairman

Hong Kong, 25 March 2021

MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS

BUSINESS REVIEW

For the year ended 31 December 2020, the Group's revenue was HK$2,778 million compared with HK$830 million in 2019. The increase was due to revenue recognition on The Carmel during the year.

Consolidated loss for the year was HK$616 million, a decrease of HK$921 million compared with profit of HK$305 million in 2019. The decrease was mainly attributable to (i) an increase in fair value loss on investment properties and financial instruments including joint ventures of HK$1,324 million in 2020 as compared to HK$191 million in 2019, offset by (ii) HK$127 million higher profit from the property development segment due to profit recognised from The Carmel and (iii) HK$193 million one-off valuation gain from distribution in specie from the joint venture of Le Cap project.

The fair value loss on investment properties and financial instruments including joint ventures of HK$1,324 million were mainly attributable to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic ("pandemic"). The loss was comprised of (i) HK$1,099 million valuation loss on investment properties, mainly Landmark East and Lanson Place Causeway Bay hotel in Hong Kong; and (ii) HK$225 million mark-to-market loss from financial instruments, mainly interest rate swap contracts and investments in Singapore REITS.

Consolidated loss attributable to shareholders was HK$674 million, a decrease of HK$913 million compared with consolidated profit of HK$239 million in 2019.

Core consolidated profit attributable to shareholders, excluding one-off valuation gain and change in fair value on investment properties and financial instruments including joint ventures, was HK$456 million, an increase of HK$32 million, compared with HK$424 million in 2019.

Loss per share attributable to shareholders was HK$0.50, compared with earnings per share attributable to shareholders of HK$0.18 in 2019.

Property Development

The property development segment revenue was HK$2,054 million in 2020 compared with HK$26 million in 2019. Segment profit before taxation (including fair value changes) was HK$279 million compared with HK$15 million in 2019. Excluding fair value changes in investment properties and financial instruments including joint ventures (2020 was fair value loss of HK$58 million; 2019 was fair value loss of HK$2 million) and HK$193 million one-off valuation gain from distribution in specie from a joint venture, segment profit before taxation was HK$144 million in 2020, compared with HK$17 million in 2019, as a result of sold units of The Carmel handed over to buyers during the year.

Since January 2020, the pandemic had slowed down the primary residential property market, in particular, the high-end property market.

Wholly-owned projects

The Carmel, a low-density residential site in Siu Sau, Tai Lam, Tuen Mun, provides a saleable area of approximately 147,000 square feet for 178 residential units of apartment and house. In 2020, around 8% (in terms of number) of the residential units, mainly house units, were sold.

Cumulatively, as at 31 December 2020, around 97% (in terms of number) of the residential units were sold. Around 97% (in terms of number) of the residential units were handed over to buyers with related revenue recognised in 2020.

OMA OMA, a medium-density residential site on So Kwun Wat Road, So Kwun Wat, Tuen Mun, provides a saleable area of approximately 234,000 square feet for 466 residential apartment units. Superstructure work is underway and the project is scheduled for completion in 2021. In 2020, around 15% (in terms of number) of the residential units were pre-sold. Cumulatively, as at 31

December 2020, around 86% (in terms of number) of the residential units were pre-sold. Related revenue and profit of the pre-sold units will be recognised upon handover to buyers prior to the project's material date in 2021.

Majority-owned project

The Group has a 70% interest in OMA by the Sea, the site adjacent to The Carmel in Siu Sau, Tai Lam, Tuen Mun, a medium-density residential site that offers a saleable area of approximately 252,000 square feet. Pre-sale consent was obtained in March 2020 and pre-sale was launched in

May 2020. Superstructure work has commenced and the project is scheduled for completion in 2022. As at 31 December 2020, around 74% (in terms of number) of the residential units were pre-sold. Related revenue and profit of the pre-sold units will be recognised upon handover to buyers prior to the project's material date that falls in 2022.

Joint venture projects

The Group has a 35% interest in two low-density residential projects, Le Cap and La Vetta. Both of them are located in Kau To, Shatin, offering a saleable area of approximately 460,000 square feet altogether. In 2020, around 2% and 5% (in terms of number) of the residential units of Le Cap and La Vetta were sold, respectively. Cumulatively, as at 31 December 2020, around 30% and 32% (in terms of number) of the residential units of Le Cap and La Vetta were sold, respectively. Around 4%

(in terms of number) of Le Cap and 6% (in terms of number) of La Vetta's residential units were handed over to buyers respectively, with related revenue recognised in 2020. The Group is the joint project manager and lead sales and marketing manager for both projects. In September 2020, all unsold units of Le Cap were distributed to shareholders. After distribution, the Group has approximately 36,000 square feet saleable area of houses and apartments, and 22 car parking spaces, which are held for leasing.

The Group has a 50% interest in a commercial complex site in Central, through the tender for Site C of the Gage Street/Graham Street project as put up by the Urban Renewal Authority.

Advantageously located in the heart of the bustling Central financial hub, the site provides a gross floor area of up to 433,500 square feet to be developed into a Grade A office tower, a hotel, retail shops, as well as public open space with green facilities for the neighbourhood. The Group is the lead project manager and lead leasing manager for this project. The foundation work for the project is in progress.

Property Investment and Management

The property investment and management segment revenue reduced slightly to HK$614 million in 2020, compared with HK$626 million in 2019. Segment loss before taxation (including fair value changes) was HK$595 million, compared with segment profit of HK$460 million in 2019. Excluding fair value changes in investment properties and financial instruments, including joint ventures (2020 was fair value loss of HK$985 million; 2019 was fair value gain of HK$3 million) and one-off items, segment profit before taxation was HK$397 million, compared with HK$419 million in 2019. The decrease was mainly attributable to lower leasing income due to the pandemic.

Since the second quarter of 2020, office leasing market in Hong Kong and London have been affected by slowdown in office space demand and downsizing of industries badly hit by the pandemic.

As at 31 December 2020, the Group's portfolio of investment properties, mostly Grade A office buildings, has a total area of approximately 1,886,000 square feet with an aggregate attributable fair market valuation of around HK$19,800 million.

We own a 21% interest in this joint venture. The Group's share of capital contribution to the joint venture is approximately £54.2 million

(equivalent to approximately HK$594.4 million). This property is a Grade A office building in a prime business hub on the western edge of The City of London. It started a refurbishment program in 2018 which was completed in last quarter of 2020. The office space is fully leased to a global Big Four accounting and professional services firm.

Hospitality Investment and Management

The hospitality investment and management segment revenue was HK$62 million in 2020 compared with HK$122 million in 2019. Segment loss before taxation (including fair value changes) was HK$234 million in 2020 compared with segment loss of HK$232 million in 2019.

The wholly-owned Lanson Place Causeway Bay hotel in Hong Kong and 50% owned Lanson Place Bukit Ceylon in Kuala Lumpur has suffered from the pandemic throughout the year, resulted in a drastic drop in both occupancy and average room rates in 2020. The situation has not been improved given travel restrictions and quarantine measures were imposed globally, resulting in operating loss.

Lanson Place Waterfront Suites, our wholly-owned prime harbour-front furnished residence in Sai Wan Ho, was opened in April 2019 for leasing, and occupancy continued to build up although the pace has slowed down due to the pandemic.

Lanson Place Hospitality Management and the properties under the brand continue to gain good recognition from travelers. Lanson Place Causeway Bay, Lanson Place Bukit Ceylon and Lanson Place Waterfront Suites have each taken home an award from World Luxury Hotel Awards 2020, a world-renowned accolade which acknowledges and rewards high-quality accommodation around the world. In Kuala Lumpur, Lanson Place Bukit Ceylon continues to shine in the industry by taking home the "Malaysia's Leading Serviced Apartments 2020" at the World Travel Awards 2020, and "The Best Luxury Hotels in Malaysia" at the Luxury Lifestyle Awards 2020.

Others

This segment represents investing activities and central management and administrative expenses.

Segment revenue was HK$48 million in 2020, compared with HK$55 million in 2019.

Segment loss before taxation (including fair value changes) was HK$6 million in 2020 compared with a segment profit of HK$132 million in 2019, which was mainly attributable to the fair value loss of HK$78 million (2019 was fair value gain of HK$18 million) from the Group's investment in Singapore REITs, which are listed on the Singapore Exchange, mainly reflected a drop in market price of the units in Suntec REIT as compared to the unit market price at 31 December 2019 as a result of the pandemic.

Excluding fair value changes in financial instruments (2020 was fair value loss of HK$78 million; 2019 was fair value gain of HK$27 million), segment profit before taxation was HK$72 million in 2020, a decrease of HK$33 million compared with HK$105 million in 2019 due to a decrease in bank interest income during the year.

Liquidity and Financial Resources

The Group's net assets totalled HK$27,641 million as at 31 December 2020 (2019: HK$28,624 million).

HK$3,158 million) were subordinated to the loan facilities of joint ventures and assigned. The shares in these joint ventures beneficially owned by the Group are pledged to the financial institutions.

As at 31 December 2020, several of the Group's investment properties, properties for sale and other properties, plant and equipment with carrying values of HK$4,435 million, HK$1,685 million and HK$34 million, respectively, were pledged to secure credit facilities for the Group.

PROSPECTS

Looking ahead, the ongoing pandemic and Sino-US tension will continue to cast uncertainties on the economic outlook of Hong Kong. The operating environment will likely remain very challenging in 2021 for our hospitality and office leasing businesses, given the local economy can only gradually recover when travel restrictions and social distancing measures are lifted. However, we expect Hong Kong's primary residential property market, in particular the mass market products, will continue to be supported by pent up demand of local first-time home buyers due to unresolved property supply shortage, easing policies on home mortgage, and low interest rate.

The Group will continue the sale of the remaining units of our three "Upper Gold Coast series" and lease out unsold units in La Vetta. We are on schedule to complete the development of OMA OMA in 2021, and the related profit on the accumulated pre-sold units will be booked upon handover to the buyers in 2021.

The Group will focus on recovering occupancy rates and rental income for our hospitality and commercial properties, which will depend on the pace and effectiveness of vaccination, uplifting of travel bans and business recovery of our corporate tenants. While we expect overall leasing profit from our existing properties will decline in 2021, the newly acquired 66 Shoe Lane in London will contribute from April 2021 onwards.

The Group remains cautious on our business outlook for 2021. Supported by our healthy balance sheet, resilient capital structure, as well as diversified asset portfolios, we will remain vigilant against market fluctuation. Our focus remains on developing high quality projects, delivering premium services, as well as improving the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of our business operations; while prudently and diligently exploring new opportunities that may arise during this exceptionally challenging period.

KEY RISKS AND UNCERTAINTIES

The Group's business, financial conditions or results of operations are affected by a number of key risks and uncertainties outlined below. There may be other risks or uncertainties, including those which are not known to the Group or which the Group currently deems to be immaterial but may affect the Group in future.

Business Risks

Property development

A majority of the Group's assets are located in, and a majority of the Group's revenue is derived from Hong Kong. As a result, the general state of Hong Kong and the property market, the interest rate changes and the political and legal situations in Hong Kong may have a significant impact on the Group's operating results and financial condition.

The Group's activities on its development properties are also subject to various laws and regulations of Hong Kong. Developing properties, refurbishment and other re-development projects require government permits. The government may introduce property cooling measures from time to time which may have a significant impact on the property market and may adversely affect the Group's property sales performance and financial condition.

Property investment and hospitality business

Financial performance may be materially and adversely affected in the event of a decline in rental or occupancy levels, or difficulties in securing lease renewals or obtaining new tenants. The Group cannot be assured that existing tenants will renew their leases upon expiration or that the Group will be able to find replacement tenants at rental rates equal to or above the current rental rates for tenancies.
