As disclosed in the announcements of the Company dated 5 May 2017, 10 May 2017 and 29 May 2017 and the circular of the Company dated 29 May 2017, Xiezhong Nanjing and BAIC entered into the Previous Master Agreement on 5 May 2017 in relation to supply of Air-conditioning Systems by the Group to the Purchasers for the term from 1 January 2018 to 31 December 2020. The Previous Master Agreement has expired in accordance with its terms on 31 December 2020. As at the date of this announcement, no new master agreement has been entered into between Xiezhong Nanjing and BAIC to govern the supply of Air-conditioning Systems by the Group to the Purchasers.

Subsequent to the Supply Agreements entered into between Hainachuan Xiezhong (as supplier) and the Purchasers (as purchasers) as announced in the announcements of the Company dated 5 February 2021 and 12 April 2021, Hainachuan Xiezhong (as supplier) and the Purchasers (as purchasers) had on 14, 19 and 21 April and 7 and 10 May 2021 further entered into the Supply Agreements in relation to the supply of Air-conditioning Systems by the Group to the Purchasers pursuant to the terms and conditions thereto.

The transaction prices of the relevant Air-conditioning Systems have been determined based on a cost-based approach and made reference to (i) the choice and purchasing cost of raw materials determined with reference to the market positioning of the models of the automobile which the order of Air-conditioning Systems will be fitted into; and (ii) the level of technical requirements for the production of such Air-conditioning Systems.

In respect of technical requirements in the determination of the price of Air-conditioning Systems, the Group has taken into account the following factors: (a) the noise emission level requirement while the Air-conditioning Systems are in operation;

  1. the cooling efficiency requirement; and (c) the fuel efficiency requirement of the Air-conditioning Systems for the relevant model of automobile. Further, such level of technical requirement will affect the choice and purchasing cost of raw materials. Generally, the higher the market position of the model of automobile, the higher the level of technical requirement and cost of raw materials.

REASONS FOR AND BENEFITS OF THE ENTERING INTO OF THE SUPPLY AGREEMENTS

The Group is one of the leading suppliers of HVAC systems for vehicles. Given that the Air-conditioning Systems supplied by the Group to the BAIC Group are for various types and grades of automobile from time to time including newly developed models which may require new production techniques, the transactions contemplated under the Supply Agreements are expected to enhance the Group's product portfolio and allow the Group to keep abreast of market trends.

Further, our Group has already supplied Air-conditioning Systems to the BAIC Group in the past and the sales to the BAIC Group are expected to make positive contribution to the Group's total sales.

The Directors (including the independent non-executive Directors) having reviewed the Supply Agreements and taking into consideration (i) the price of the other types of Air- conditioning Systems provided by the Group for other automobiles with similar market positioning marketed by other customers of the Group who are Independent Third Parties with similar technical requirements; and (ii) the substantial quantity of Air-conditioning Systems previously purchased and expected to be ordered by the Purchasers, consider that the transactions under the Supply Agreements have been entered into in the ordinary and usual course of business, on normal commercial terms and that the terms of the Supply Agreements are fair and reasonable and in the interests of the Company and the Shareholders as a whole.
