MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS

Xingda International Holdings Limited ("Company") and its subsidiaries (together the "Group" or "Xingda") are pleased to present the unaudited interim results for the six months ended 30 June 2020.

For the six months ended 30 June 2020, the Group recorded revenue amounting to RMB3,181.3 million, representing

  1. 15.6% year-on-year decrease (first half of 2019: RMB3,769.2 million). Gross profit declined by 18.2% year-on-year to RMB592.6 million (first half of 2019: RMB724.3 million), while gross profit margin also contracted by 0.6 percentage point to 18.6% as compared with the last corresponding period (first half of 2019: 19.2%). Profit attributable to owners of the Company fell by 34.9% year-on-year to RMB103.8 million (first half of 2019: RMB159.4 million). Basic earnings per share was RMB6.82 fen (first half of 2019: 10.68 fen). The Board does not recommend the payment of an interim dividend for the six months ended 30 June 2020.

In the first half of 2020, the outbreak of COVID-19 subsequently spread around the world. All businesses and factories across China suspended operations at the beginning of the year in an effort to fight the pandemic. Correspondingly, all commercial activities were halted temporarily. Impacted by the unstable market conditions and COVID-19, the global economy was inevitably affected. Under such circumstance, the Chinese government responded promptly, launching a series of economic stimulus measures, as well as supportive policies of which included the reduction and exemption of taxes and tariffs and the development of new infrastructure. With these measures in place, the country's economy successfully recovered and achieved a growth in the second quarter of 2020. Consequently, the radial tire cord industry managed to maintain stable development.

With COVID-19 under control in mainland China, the Group resumed operations during mid to late February, after halting production for around four to five weeks at the beginning of the year. Thus, the Group's operating activities, such as manufacturing and sales, returned to normal. During the period, by leveraging its competitive advantages as leader and industry guardian, Xingda quickly resumed operation and production activities, and was able to maintain stable business performance after the resumption of production.

According to data from China Rubber Industry Association, the 38 key member units of its tire division recorded total domestic radial tire output of approximately 197 million in the first half of 2020, representing a year-on-year decrease of 9.9%, As for the radialization rate, it remained stable at 94.3%.The decline of radial tire output was mainly due to the temporary production suspension of the tire manufacturers in China in certain times of February resulting from COVID-19.

BUSINESS REVIEW

In the first half of 2020, Xingda adhered to its operating philosophy of vigilance while preserving its financial strengths. With its competitive advantages as an industry leader and supported by its healthy financial structure and high-quality products, the Group strived to achieve a steady business performance despite the effect from pandemic. In the first half of 2020, the Group recorded total sales volume of 366,100 tonnes, down 9.5% year-on-year. Sales volume of radial tire cords decreased by 13.5% year-on-year to 292,600 tonnes, and accounted for 79.9% of the Group's total sales volume (first half of 2019: 83.6%). Sales volume of bead wire and other wire increased by 10.7% to 73,500 tonnes, and accounted for 20.1% of the Group's total sales volume (first half of 2019: 16.4%).

In the first half of 2020, the sales volume of the Group's radial tire cords in China declined by 5.1% to 236,400 tonnes (first half of 2019: 249,100 tonnes). Around March 2020, COVID-19 pandemic started to affect the world. Under the circumstances, the production schedule and raw materials procurement plan of overseas tire manufacturers were deferred. As a result, sales of radial tire cords in the overseas markets decreased by 36.9% year-on-year to 56,200 tonnes during the period (first half of 2019: 89,100 tonnes). Sales volume in the domestic and overseas markets constituted 80.8% and 19.2%, respectively, of the Group's total sales volume of radial tire cords (first half of 2019: 73.6% and 26.4%).

As at 30 June 2020, the Group's annual production capacity of radial tire cords increased modestly to 743,000 tonnes, with the Jiangsu and Shandong factories accounting for up to 628,500 tonnes and 103,500 tonnes respectively. In addition, the Group's factory in Thailand has commenced trial production and the annual production capacity of radial tire cords was 11,000 tonnes by the end of the first half of 2020, allowing the Group to diversify geopolitical risks amid trade disputes. For bead wires and other wires, annual production capacity increased to 189,000 tonnes. The Group's overall capacity utilization rate dropped to 79.2% (first half of 2019: 90.2%).

During the review period, the Group's revenue declined by 15.6% year-on-year to RMB3,181.3 million (first half of 2019: RMB3,769.2 million), mainly due to lower sales volume of radial tire cords under the effect of COVID-19.

MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS

FINANCIAL REVIEW - CONTINUED

Gross profit and gross profit margin

The Group's gross profit contracted by 18.2% year-on-year to RMB592.6 million (first half of 2019: RMB724.3 million), with

gross profit margin at 18.6% (first half of 2019: 19.2%), representing a year-on-year drop of 0.6 percentage point. This was mainly due to higher fixed production costs per tonne under lower utilization rate recorded in the first quarter of 2020.

Other income

Other income increased by 38.4% to RMB71.0 million (first half of 2019: RMB51.3 million), mainly due to the increase of bank interest income which was derived from placing fixed bank deposits and bank balances.

Government grants

During the review period, government grants increased by 10.0% to RMB8.8 million (first half of 2019: RMB8.0 million) due to an increase in recurring subsidies from the local government.

Distribution and selling expenses

Distribution and selling expenses decreased by 16.2% to RMB223.6 million (first half of 2019: RMB266.8 million). The decrease was mainly attributable to a decrease of transportation and storage costs under lower sales volume.

Administrative expenses

Administrative expenses decreased by 10.5% to RMB160.6 million (first half of 2019: RMB179.4 million), mainly attributable to a decrease in salaries and pension provision.

Other gains and losses, net

Other gains and losses, net decreased by RMB14.2 million or 71.7% from net gain of RMB19.8 million in the first half of 2019 to net gain of RMB5.6 million in the first half of 2020. It was mainly due to the decrease in gain on change in fair value of financial assets at fair value through profit or loss.

Impairment loss recognised on trade and other receivables

Impairment loss on trade and other receivables decreased by 84.4% to RMB2.2 million (first half of 2019: RMB14.1 million), mainly attributable to strict trading debts management.

Research and development expenses

Research and development expenses increased by 22.1% to RMB54.6 million (first half of 2019: RMB44.7 million), as the Group kept on putting resources to boost technology advancement on production technique, automation and emission reduction as well as developing more new products to meet the needs of customers.

MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS

FINANCIAL REVIEW - CONTINUED

Finance costs

Finance costs rose by 65.9% to RMB46.3 million (first half of 2019: RMB27.9 million) if the amount capitalised in the cost

of qualifying assets of RMB17.5 million (first half of 2019: RMB11.0 million) in the first half of 2020 was excluded. The increase was mainly due to the rise of average balance of bank borrowings.

Income tax expense

The Group's income tax expense increased by RMB8.7 million or 19.0% to RMB54.6 million (first half of 2019: RMB45.9

million) with an effective tax rate of 26.2% (first half of 2019: 16.3%). The increase in income tax expense was mainly caused by the withholding tax on earnings distributed by the Group's PRC subsidiaries amounting to RMB13.8 million and deferred tax charges related to the provision of withholding tax amounting to RMB5.0 million respectively (first half of 2019: nil). If the above total of withholding tax and deferred tax of RMB18.8 million were excluded, the income tax charge would have dropped to RMB35.8 million (first half of 2019: RMB45.9 million) and the effective tax rate would become 17.2% (first half of 2019: 16.3%).

Net profit

Taking the above factors into account, the Group's net profit for the six months ended 30 June 2020 decreased by 34.6% to RMB153.9 million (first half of 2019: RMB235.5 million). If the change in fair value of financial assets at fair value through profit or loss, deferred tax charges related to provision of withholding tax from non-operating activities and net exchange loss arising from non-operating activities were excluded, the adjusted net profit of the Group for the six months ended 30 June 2020 would be RMB158.1 million, representing a decrease of RMB61.9 million or 28.1% when compared with the same period in the previous year.

MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS

LIQUIDITY, CAPITAL RESOURCES AND CAPITAL STRUCTURE

During the period, there was no significant change in the Group's funding and treasury policy. The principal source of liquidity and capital resources was cash flow generated from operating activities and financial activities whereas the principal uses of cash were for placement of fixed bank deposits and the expansion of production capacity.

Bank balances and cash including bank deposits of the Group increased by RMB151.7 million from RMB497.9 million as at 31 December 2019 to RMB649.6 million as at 30 June 2020. The increase was due to the cash generated from operating activities of RMB402.5 million and from financing activities of RMB561.5 million, exceeding the cash used in investment activities of RMB812.2 million and the decrease in cash under the effect of foreign exchange rate changes of RMB0.1 million.

Borrowings increased by RMB632.5 million or 29.1% to RMB2,805.4 million as at 30 June 2020 from RMB2,172.9 million as at 31 December 2019. The bank borrowings carry interest at market rates from 2.64% to 4.79% (first half of 2019: 2.92% to 5.36%). Borrowings of RMB2,520.4 million are repayable within one year from 30 June 2020 and the remaining borrowings of RMB285.0 million are repayable after one year from 30 June 2020.

As at 30 June 2020, the Group's current assets decreased by 7.1% to RMB6,380.9 million (31 December 2019: RMB6,868.5

million). Current liabilities increased by 0.8% to RMB5,734.2 million (31 December 2019: RMB5,685.9 million). The Group's

current ratio (being defined as current assets over current liabilities) decreased to 1.11 times (31 December 2019: 1.21 times). The decrease was mainly caused by the decrease in trade, bill and other receivables and the increase in borrowings

  • due within one year. The gearing ratio (being defined as total debts to total assets) as at 30 June 2020 was 20.3% (31 December 2019: 15.7%).

FOREIGN EXCHANGE RISK

The Group's sales and purchases were principally denominated in Renminbi, US dollars and Euros. Part of the sales proceeds in US dollars and Euros have been used to purchase imported raw materials in the same currencies.

Apart from certain bank and debtors' balances in US dollars, Euros, Hong Kong dollars and Thai baht, most of the assets and liabilities of the Group were denominated in Renminbi. Therefore, the Group was not exposed to significant foreign exchange risk. The Group did not enter any financial derivative instruments to hedge against foreign exchange currency risk during the period under review. However, the Group is closely monitoring the impact of change in value of the Renminbi on its operations and may consider appropriate hedging solutions, if required.

CAPITAL EXPENDITURE

For the six months ended 30 June 2020, capital expenditure for property, plant and equipment amounted to RMB185.8 million (first half of 2019: RMB735.9 million).

MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS

HUMAN RESOURCES - CONTINUED

In addition to salaries and bonuses, the Group also provides various benefits to employees through the Labour Union of Xingda ("Xingda Labour Union").

The contribution is booked in due course as an operating expense of the Group. Under the scheme, no forfeited contributions are available to reduce the existing level of contributions. Apart from pension funds, the Group has provided medical, personal accident and unemployment insurance policies for its employees.

MANAGEMENT DISCUSSION AND ANALYSIS

PROSPECTS

In late 2019, the COVID-19 outbreak impacted the economy of China and the global economy. Moreover, the pandemic not only affected economic development around the world, but also introduced uncertainty to the capital market. To alleviate the negative impact of the pandemic on the operating environment, the Chinese government launched a series of stimulus measures. This included new infrastructure projects in 20 provinces and cities across China that will be implemented in the coming five years via investments amounting to of over RMB17 trillion. These measures are set to drive future economic growth amid the challenging times.

To complement the recovery of the domestic economy, China has continued to execute policies aimed at controlling the overcapacity of trucks and accelerating the replacement of such vehicles. Backed by strong support from the country, new infrastructure projects have achieved tremendous progress in various provinces and cities, further stimulating demand for radial tire cords. As a leading producer of such cords, the Group is determined to make continuous improvements even in the face of adversity, adhere to a timely and practical operation approach and seize opportunities that arise from the crisis.

Looking ahead, the Group will continue to closely monitor the pandemic's development and alleviate its negative impact on the Group's operating results and financial position. It will also adjust its strategies based on prevailing market conditions so as to sustain the Group's stable growth. Operating in an unfavorable environment, the Group will push ahead with achieving an international operation layout, place high importance on product quality and develop advanced products in order to maintain a healthy financial structure and create long-term satisfactory returns for the Group and its shareholders.

The epidemic in China had been brought under control steadily since March 2020. GDP recorded 3.2% growth year-on-year in the second quarter, which indicated that the economy had stabilized and was back on course to growth. The recovery will therefore create favorable conditions for local infrastructure and logistics activities in the second half of the year, which in turn will benefit the development of the tire and radial tire industries.​

REPORT ON REVIEW OF CONDENSED CONSOLIDATED FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

TO THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF

XINGDA INTERNATIONAL HOLDINGS LIMITED

(incorporated in the Cayman Islands with limited liability)

Introduction

We have reviewed the condensed consolidated financial statements of Xingda International Holdings Limited (the "Company") and its subsidiaries (collectively referred to as the "Group") set out on pages 23 to 48, which comprise the condensed consolidated statement of financial position as of 30 June 2020 and the related condensed consolidated statement of profit or loss and other comprehensive income, statement of changes in equity and statement of cash flows for the six-month period then ended, and certain explanatory notes. The Rules Governing the Listing of Securities on The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited require the preparation of a report on interim financial information to be in compliance with the relevant provisions thereof and International Accounting Standard 34 "Interim Financial Reporting" ("IAS 34") issued by the International Accounting Standards Board. The directors of the Company are responsible for the preparation and presentation of these condensed consolidated financial statements in accordance with IAS 34. Our responsibility is to express a conclusion on these condensed consolidated financial statements based on our review, and to report our conclusion solely to you, as a body, in accordance with our agreed terms of engagement, and for no other purpose. We do not assume responsibility towards or accept liability to any other person for the contents of this report.

Scope of Review

We conducted our review in accordance with Hong Kong Standard on Review Engagements 2410 "Review of Interim Financial Information Performed by the Independent Auditor of the Entity" issued by the Hong Kong Institute of Certified Public Accountants. A review of these condensed consolidated financial statements consists of making inquiries, primarily of persons responsible for financial and accounting matters, and applying analytical and other review procedures. A review is substantially less in scope than an audit conducted in accordance with Hong Kong Standards on Auditing and consequently does not enable us to obtain assurance that we would become aware of all significant matters that might be identified in an audit. Accordingly, we do not express an audit opinion.

Conclusion

Based on our review, nothing has come to our attention that causes us to believe that the condensed consolidated financial statements are not prepared, in all material respects, in accordance with IAS 34.

2A. SIGNIFICANT EVENTS AND TRANSACTIONS IN THE CURRENT INTERIM PERIOD

The outbreak of Covid-19 and the subsequent quarantine measures as well as the travel restrictions imposed by many countries have had negative impacts to the global economy, business environment and directly and indirectly affect the operations of the Group. The Group has delayed the resumption of its manufacturing activities after Chinese New Year Holiday to late February 2020 due to mandatory government quarantine measures in an effort to contain the spread of the pandemic. As such, the financial positions and performance of the Group were affected in different aspects, including reduction in revenue and production volumes and a decline in gross profit margin due to higher fixed production overheads incurred during the close down period.

3.1 Impacts of application on Amendments to IAS 1 and IAS 8 "Definition of Material"

4. REVENUE AND SEGMENT INFORMATION - CONTINUED

Segment information

The directors of the Company (the "Directors"), being the chief operating decision maker of the Group, regularly review revenue analysis by types of products which are basically radial tire cords, bead wires and other wires, for the purposes of resource allocation and assessment of performance. However, other than revenue analysis, no operating results or other discrete financial information is available for the assessment of performance of the respective types of products. The Directors review the operating results of the Group as a whole to make decisions about resource allocation. The operation of the Group constitutes one single operating and reportable segment under IFRS 8 Operating Segments and accordingly no separate segment information is prepared. The information about its non-current assets (other than deferred tax assets, fixed bank deposits with more than three months to maturity when placed and pledged bank deposits) by geographical locations of the assets are details below:

Current tax provision represents provision for PRC Enterprise Income tax ("PRC EIT") which is calculated at the rate prevailing on the taxable income of the group entities in the PRC. Under the Law of the PRC on Enterprise Income Tax (the "EIT Law") and Implementation Regulation of EIT Law, the tax rate for certain PRC subsidiaries is 25% from 1 January 2008 onwards, except for the subsidiary described below.

In accordance with the renewed High-tech Enterprise Certificate issued on 24 October 2018, Jiangxu Xingda is continued to entitle the tax incentive as High-tech Enterprise and accordingly, the status of High-tech Enterprise is to be effective for the years 2018, 2019 and 2020. As a result, the tax rate of 15% is used to calculate the amount of current and deferred tax for the six months ended 30 June 2020 and 2019.

No provision for taxation in Hong Kong has been made as the Group's income neither arises in, nor is derived from, Hong Kong for both periods.

No provision for taxation in Thailand has been made as the Group's subsidiary in Thailand has no assessable profit for both periods.

40 to 50 years. On lease commencement, the Group recognise right-of-use assets of RMB111,301,000 (for the six months ended 30 June 2019: nil).

The fair value of the Group's investment properties as at 31 December 2019 has been arrived at on the basis of a valuation carried out on 31 December 2019 by Cushman & Wakefield Limited, independent qualified professional valuers not connected with the Group.

The fair value of investment properties at 30 June 2020 were assessed by the directors of the Company. In the opinion of the directors of the Company, the aggregate carrying amounts of the Group's investment properties in Shanghai, the PRC which are determined by adopting the investment approach and the direct comparison approach, as at the current interim period that are carried at revalued amounts does not differ significantly from their estimated fair value.

The fair value of the Group's investment properties was determined based on the investment approach, where the rentals of all lettable units of the properties are assessed and discounted at the market yield expected by investors for this type of properties and, where appropriate, by referencing to the sales of properties with the benefit of vacant possession taking into account the comparable evidence as available in the relevant market. The rentals are assessed by reference to the rentals achieved in the lettable units of the properties as well as other lettings of similar properties in the neighbourhood. The market yield is determined by reference to the yields derived from analysing the sales transactions of similar commercial properties in Shanghai and adjusted to take into account the market expectation from property investors to reflect factors specific to the Group's investment properties. There has been no change from the valuation technique used in the prior year. In estimating the fair value of the properties, the highest and best use of the properties is their current use.

The key inputs used in valuing the investment properties were the market yield 5% and rental. Slight increases in the market yield and rental would result in a significant decrease and increase, respectively, in fair value measurement of the investment properties, and vice versa.

The fair value of the Group's investment properties at 30 June 2020 was assessed by the Directors based on the investment approach. In the opinion of the Directors, the carrying amount of the Group's investment properties as at the end of the current interim period does not differ significantly from their estimated fair value. Consequently, no gain or loss on fair value changes has been recognised in the current interim period.
