We are a pioneer in China’s new-type of urbanization. We have established industry leadership through over ten years of solid track record since 2002, and are among the very first players to engage in primary land development. With the trend of new urbanization in China and the Company’s advantage in resources, we are gradually reforming, exploring and planning the blueprint of urbanization, while shaping development concepts and specifying strategies. Going on with the basis to follow the guidelines of national policy and with the demand of regional development and city life, we shall focus on creating new-type cities and towns featuring“city-
industry integration”, improve the quality and experience of people lives. With the business strategy of “urbanization investment+downstream operation”, on top of fixed investment in urbanization projects, we introduce excellent brand of downstream operation businesses to the region at the same time, such as education, tourism, medical and etc. We aim to focus on the downstream operation, to build long-term industry competence and value, and to build a sustainable level of profitability over the long run.

Currently, CNTD has projects including Shanghai Luodian Project, Nanjing Yuhuatai District Two Bridges Project, Yangzhou Airport New Town Project, Danyang Xinmeng River Project and Shenyang Lixiang Project. Among them, Shanghai Luodian and Shenyang Lixiang are the remaining projects before the acquisition, in which we share part of the interest in the proceeds from the sale of land use right. For the Nanjing, Yangzhou and Danyang projects, through direct equity participation, public-private-partnership model (the“PPP model”), funds and other methods, we are entitled to a generous annualized fixed income according to the investment amount and receive credit enhancements on our investments such as including the returns into the local government’s annual fiscal budget. What’s more, the Group entered the Nanjing and Yangzhou projects with an investment model featuring steady and measurable fixed income, to further identify and select opportunities in the value-added section of the downstream value chain in the process of urbanization development, through participating in areas including industry introduction, secondary land development and smartcity operation to boost follow-up investment opportunities for excessive returns, as well as to implement “city-industry integration” in
the true sense aiming at creating a leading new brand in the field of new-type of urbanization.

Under the background of the national policy which supports new urbanization, we have confidence to realize the steady upgrade of the Company’s scale of assets and operating results by fully integrating the resource advantages of controlling shareholder and the rich experience of project teams.
