DISCLAIMER - INTENDED ADDRESSEES

This announcement does not constitute an offer of any securities for sale. No action has been taken in any jurisdiction to permit a public offering of the Securities where such action is required. The offer and sale of the Securities may be restricted by law in certain jurisdictions.

The Securities and any ordinary shares which may be delivered upon conversion of the Securities have not been and will not be registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended (the "Securities Act") or with any securities regulatory authority of any state or other jurisdiction of the United States, and the Securities and any ordinary shares which may be delivered upon conversion of the Securities are subject to U.S. tax law requirements. Subject to certain exceptions, the Securities and any ordinary shares which may be delivered upon conversion of the Securities may not be offered or sold to, or for the account or benefit of, U.S. persons (as defined in Regulation S under the Securities Act).

The Securities are not intended to be offered, sold or otherwise made available to and should not be offered, sold or otherwise made available to any retail investor in the EEA or in the UK. For these purposes, a retail investor means a person who is one (or more) of: (i) a retail client as defined in point (11) of Article 4(1) of Directive 2014/86/EU ("MiFID II") or (ii) a customer within the meaning of Directive (EU) 2016/97 (the "Insurance Distribution Directive") where that customer would not qualify as a professional client as defined in point (10) of Article 4(1) of MiFID II. Consequently no key information document required by Regulation (EU) No. 1286/2014 ("PRIIPs") for offering or selling the Securities or otherwise making them available to retail investors in the EEA or in the UK has been prepared and therefore offering or selling the Securities or otherwise making them available to any retail investor in the EEA or in the UK may be unlawful under PRIIPs.

The Securities are not intended to be initially placed and may not be initially placed to "connected persons" of the Company under the Rules Governing the Listing of Securities on The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited.

The distribution of this announcement in certain jurisdictions may be restricted by law. Persons into whose possession this announcement comes are required to inform themselves about and to observe any such restrictions.
