The Private Placement Shares and the new common shares to be issued upon conversion of Private Placement CB will have the same rights and obligations as the Company's existing issued and outstanding common shares. (2)The conversion price of the Private Placement CB shall be no less than 80% of (x) either the simple average closing price of the Issuer's common shares for 1, 3 or 5 trading days prior to the pricing date, after adjustment for shares issued as stock dividends, shares cancelled in connection with capital reduction and the cash dividends, or (y) the simple average closing price of the Issuer's common shares for 30 trading days prior to the pricing date, after adjustment for shares issued as stock dividends, shares cancelled in connection with capital reduction and the cash dividends. It is proposed for the shareholders meeting to authorize the Board to determine the actual conversion price in accordance with applicable rules and regulations. (3)The reason for the situation where the issue price of the new common shares to be issued to sponsor the DR Offering, the new common shares to be issued in public offering, the new preferred shares to be issued in public offering, Private Placement Shares and the conversion price for the Private Placement CB is set at a price less than the par value due to change of the market change and the reason for the Company not adopt other fund raising method and the reasonableness for such determination: This is mainly based on considerations of the sound operation of the Company and the security of its financial structure and issuing equity related securities for fund raising is more appropriate than pure debt financing. If the Company decides to use the fund raising methods, such as issuing new shares for cash to sponsor the DR Offering, issuing new common shares for cash in public offering, issuing new preferred shares for cash in public offering, and issuing Private Placement Shares, etc., the Company would not incur any interest of the debt in such case not only the Company's financial risk could be reduced, the Company's financial structure could be improved and the flexibility of the Company's treasury management would also be increased. For issuance of Private Placement CB, if investors convert Private Placement CB into the common shares, such would improve the Company's financial structure and would benefit the Company's long term development. Thus, it should be reasonable for the Company to issue the equity related securities. If the issue price and the conversion price is less than the par value, such would be expected to cause decrease of the Company's capital surplus and retained earnings in which case the Company will, depending on the actual operating conditions in the future, make up for the losses. As the issue price and conversion price will be determined in accordance with the relevant regulations, thus, after realization of the benefits of the capital increase, the Company's financial structure will be effectively improved which would be favorable to the Company's long-term development and would not have adverse impact on the rights and benefits of the shareholders.
