Notes:

(a) As compared with December 31, 2016, the decrease of $12.8 million in the cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments was mainly due to the payments of $13.4 million for new office premises, $7.7 million for dividend payment, and $4.9 million being made for land development project and accordingly was recorded under the account of real estate properties under development in the balance sheet as at September 30, 2017, partly offset by the exchange gain of $7.6 million as a result of the appreciation of Renminbi against the US dollar during the nine months ended September 30, 2017, and proceeds of $3.9 million from shares issued for the exercise of share options.
(b) As compared with September 30, 2016, the decrease of $20.7 million in the cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments was mainly due to the payments of $13.4 million for new office premises, $8.4 million for dividend payment, $5.8 million being made for land development project and accordingly was recorded under the account of real estate properties under development in the balance sheet as at September 30, 2017, partly offset by the proceeds of $3.9 million from shares issued for the exercise of share options, and the exchange gain of $2.6 million as a result of the appreciation of Renminbi against the US dollar from September 30, 2016 to September 30, 2017.
(c) Cash in the financial ratio included cash, cash equivalents and short-term investments in the amount of $171.4 million, $184.2 million and $192.1 million as at September 30, 2017, December 31, 2016 and September 30, 2016, respectively.

OPERATING RESULTS

Operation income for the third quarter of 2017 and the same quarter of last year were mainly derived from the rental of properties and lands located in Shenzhen. Operating loss for the third quarter of 2017 was $1.6 million, a decrease of $0.1 million, compared to operating loss of $1.7 million in the third quarter of 2016.

Net income for the third quarter of 2017 was $2.5 million mainly represented by an exchange gain of $2.6 million as a result of the appreciation of Renminbi against the US dollar in the third quarter of 2017, interest income of $1.7 million earned from time deposits and net operation income of $0.5 million, but partly offset by general and administrative expenses of $2.2 million, for an earning of $0.07 per diluted share. Compared to the financial results for the same period in 2016, the net loss then of $1.3 million mainly represented an exchange loss of $0.8 million as a result of the depreciation of Renminbi against the US dollar in the third quarter of 2016 and general and administrative expenses of $2.3 million, but partly offset by the interest income of $1.3 million earned from time deposits and net operation income of $0.6 million, for a loss of $0.04 per diluted share.

Net income for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 was $6.4 million mainly represented by an exchange gain of $6.2 million as a result of the appreciation of Renminbi against the US dollar during the nine months ended September 30, 2017, interest income of $6.0 million earned from time deposits and net operation income of $1.7 million, but partly offset by general and administrative expenses of $7.0 million, for an earning of $0.17 per diluted share. Compared to the financial results for the same period in 2016, the net loss then of $4.3 million mainly represented general and administrative expenses of $6.3 million and exchange loss of $3.1 million as a result of the depreciation of Renminbi against the US dollar during the nine months ended September 30, 2016, but partly offset by the interest income of $4.2 million earned from time deposits and net operation income of $1.2 million, for a loss of $0.12 per diluted share.

As the majority of our assets are denominated in Renminbi, the translation of Renminbi denominated assets to US dollars for reporting purposes has resulted in foreign exchange gain for the nine months ended September 30, 2017. Due to the fluctuation of exchange rate for Renminbi against the US dollar, foreign exchange gain for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 was $6.2 million, or approximately 96% of the amount of our net income for this period. However, since the majority of our payment obligations are also denominated in Renminbi, we do not expect the movement of Renminbi against the US dollar to materially and adversely impact our business. Nevertheless, investors should consider that the purchasing power of US dollar figures for cash and cash equivalents and other short-term investments is not identical from period to period.

Capitalization on project investment was $7.4 million for Q3 2017, totaling $12.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 and our accumulated project investment was $51.7 million up to September 30, 2017, which was recorded under the account of real estate properties under development in the balance sheet as at September 30, 2017.

Our business of land development is currently in the preparatory stage where it takes time to apply for the relevant licenses and permits from the PRC government. During this preparatory stage of the land development, our only sources of income are from limited deposit interest and rental income; therefore, we expect to continue to incur losses during this stage.

Please see page 8 of the Company's Condensed Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income for further details. This information has also been published on the Company's website at http://www.namtai.com/investors#investors/quarterly_earnings in the quarterly earnings report of Q3 2017 on page 8, Condensed Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income.

COMPANY OUTLOOK

The development of Nam Tai Inno Park in Guangming, Shenzhen, and Nam Tai Inno City in Gushu, Shenzhen, continues to proceed smoothly, without any material set-back and within the Company's expected schedule.

Based on the most recent filing by Kaisa Group Holdings Ltd. ("Kaisa"), following its purchase of shares from our chairman, Mr. Koo, and from the public market, Kaisa currently holds approximately 20.7% of our outstanding share capital. The Company has begun certain strategic cooperation with Kaisa, including hiring a number of engineers and real estate professionals from Kaisa to join the Company as officers and employees. With the injection of this new team, the Company has significantly increased its execution ability and has become less reliant on external consultants. It is expected that the Company will continue from time to time to consult with Kaisa based on its knowledge and experience in the areas of construction and real estate development. In addition, the Company's board of directors has also appointed Mr. Ying Chi Kwok, a co-founder of Kaisa, and Mr. Julian Lin, its current CEO, to the board as executive directors. Summaries of their professional experience are available on the Company's website.

The construction of Nam Tai Inno Park continues with the excavation of its foundation and pile driving during the third quarter of 2017. The Company has also been fine tuning certain schematic designs with its architectural design firm, Ronald Lu and Partners, and external project management company, WSP, to increase its construction efficiency and achieve higher aesthetic value. The Company expects to select the main construction contractor for Nam Tai Inno Park before the end of 2017, who will commence work in the beginning of 2018.

For Nam Tai Inno City, the Company has afforded its new engineers and executives the opportunity to continue to conduct a thorough review of its construction and marketing plans. The Company also plans to select the architectural design firm for the Inno City project during the fourth quarter of 2017. In line with the previously announced schedule, the demolishing of the Company's old factory buildings will commence in the fourth quarter of 2017.

As for the Company's Wuxi facilities, its factory building continues to be listed for sale and the Company has also been in discussions with several potential buyers. To maximize the sales value, the Company is also reviewing additional venues for auction.

The Company purchased new office premises for a total amount of $13.4 million in April 2017. The Company will move its headquarters to this new location after completing the demolishing of the existing headquarters in the first half of 2018.

Following below are summaries of our Nam Tai Inno Park and Nam Tai Inno City projects:

Remark

The $839 million Schematic Design Estimation was prepared by our quantity surveyor, Currie & Brown, based on a schematic design originally prepared by our architectural design firm. This estimate will be used by us for cost control purposes to monitor the costs of design, construction, and other operations.

This estimation does not include the costs of marketing and interior furnishing and makes no adjustment for inflation or financing costs. If the developed properties are offered for sale, the costs would also have to include payment for land appreciation tax.















Potential Risks in Our Business

We currently derive a majority of our income from rental and interest income but please note that our rental income will cease after October 2017. Since 2016, we have seen a stabilizing trend on the benchmark interest rates in China. However, due to the current economic conditions in China, we expect the People's Bank of China ("PBOC") to keep Renminbi-denominated official time deposit interest rates in China at a low level throughout 2017. We expect to continue to incur operating losses in the fourth quarter of 2017 and beyond. With this lower interest rate and cessation of rental income, we expect our income offset against these operating losses to materially decrease in future periods, which will accelerate the current decline of our cash and cash equivalents and other short-term investments.

We have only become a real estate developer after our electronic manufacturing businesses ceased in 2014. To ensure our successful transformation, we have engaged external advisors and sought potential strategic partners and investors, including Kaisa, to support our projects. We cannot assure you our efforts are sufficient in carrying out a transformation of this magnitude. Our Chairman, Mr. Koo, is 74 years old. Mr. Koo has begun his transition towards retirement in anticipation of age and health issues. We cannot assure you that our transition planning can be carried out smoothly, or that any successor will be able to manage our Company as effectively.

As the majority of our assets are denominated in Renminbi, the translation of Renminbi-denominated assets to US dollars for our reporting purposes has resulted in a foreign exchange gain in this quarter. As such, we do expect to see fluctuations in the reporting of foreign exchange loss/gain in the financial statements due to the movement of Renminbi against the US dollar. However, as a majority of our payments are in Renminbi, we also do not expect the movement of Renminbi against the US dollar to adversely impact our business. Nevertheless, investors should consider that the purchasing power of US dollar figures for cash and cash equivalents and other short-term investments is not identical from period to period.

In order for the projects to proceed smoothly and start ahead of schedule, we will need to access additional funding. To do so, the Company will negotiate loans and credit lines with financial banks for the implementation of funds needed to assist in future development of the projects. These debt instruments often contain covenants limiting our flexibility in operating our business and can contain requirements that we meet certain milestones in our project development. There can be no assurance that we can successfully enter into these instruments with financial institution or that, if we do, we will be able to comply with the covenants or milestones these instruments may require. Failure to enter into these loans or credit lines or to comply with any terms required by this funding may delay our developments as we seek alternative sources of funding or prevent us from completing the developments entirely.

As of end of September, 2017, we have a total cash balance of $171.4 million and no debt. With our current cash position, we believe our finances remain healthy to fund the initial stages of these property development projects in the fourth quarter of 2017 and throughout 2018. All of our land development related applications are subject to government policies and regulations in the real estate market. As this is our first venture into the land development projects after the cessation of our LCM business, we may encounter industry-specific difficulties that result in losses as we progress with our projects in Shenzhen. As we are currently in the planning stage of our property projects, and can only generate limited income from deposit interest income and rental income, we will continue to record operating losses. Cash on hand is expected to drop continuously, but most of the incurred expenses related to construction will be for project development, which will be capitalized as real estate properties under development (non-current asset) on our balance sheet. For more information on risks in our business, please refer to the Risk Factors section of our 2016 Annual Report on Form 20-F as filed with the SEC and on our website.

According to our project development plan, project investment for Q4 2017 is estimated to be $8.3 million, and project investment for the year of 2018 is estimated to be $153 million.

The Company announced today that its board of directors authorized a plan, same as 2017, to distribute annual dividends of $0.28($0.07 x 4)per outstanding share of the Company's common stock, effective from the first quarter of 2018. After extensive review, the board of directors determined that the distribution of an annual dividend of $0.28, which further enhances our dividend distribution program at a competitive level, is a prudent, in view of the fact that the property market in China, especially in Shenzhen, is booming with stable growth in the following years, we believe that the development of the two land parcels will be successful with reasonable and satisfactory profits in the future. The Company recognizes the importance of dividends to our shareholders and the significance of this decision, and believes it is the right action at this time given the highly competitive market environment to further strengthen the Company for the long-term, while still providing an attractive dividend.

To maintain the efficiency of delivering the Company's quarterly financial results to the market, the Company's management has decided to follow approximately the same schedule of 2017 to release the quarterly financial results for 2018. Details of the expected quarterly release dates are as follows:

FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS AND FACTORS THAT COULD CAUSE OUR SHARE PRICE TO DECLINE

Certain statements included in this press release, other than statements of historical fact, are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements generally can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as "may", "will", "expect", "intend", "estimate", "anticipate", "plan", "seek", "believe" or "timetable". These forward-looking statements, which are subject to risks, uncertainties, and assumptions, may include projections of our future financial performance based on our growth strategies and anticipated trends in our business. These statements are only predictions based on our current expectations about future events. There are important factors that could cause our actual results, level of activity, performance, or achievements to differ materially from the results, level of activities, performance, or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements, including, but not limited to, delay in the Company's ability to obtain all requisite permits and approvals from relevant government authorities in relation to the redevelopment of two parcels of properties in Guangming, Shenzhen, and Gushu, Shenzhen, respectively, and the successful redevelopment of the two parcels of properties into Nam Tai Inno Park and Nam Tai Inno City; the sufficiency of the Company's cash position and other sources of liquidity to fund its property developments; continued inflation and appreciation of the Renminbi against the US dollar; rising labor costs in China and changes in the labor supply and labor relations. In particular, you should consider the risks outlined under the heading "Risk Factors" in our most recent Annual Report on Form 20-F and in our Current Report filed from time to time on Form 6-K. The Company's decision to continue dividend payments in 2017 does not necessarily mean that dividend payments will continue thereafter. Whether future dividends will be declared depends upon the Company's future growth and earnings, of which there can be no assurance, as well as the Company's cash flow needs for further expansion. Accordingly, there can be no assurance that cash dividends on the Company's common shares will be declared beyond those declared for 2017, what amount those dividends may be or whether such dividends, once declared for a specific period, will continue for any future period, or at all; and whether we will purchase any of our shares in the open markets or otherwise. Although we believe the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, we cannot guarantee future results, level of activity, performance, or achievements. You should not rely upon forward-looking statements as predictions of future events. These forward-looking statements apply only as of the date of this press release; as such, they should not be unduly relied upon as circumstances change. Except as required by law, we are not obligated, and we undertake no obligation, to release publicly any revisions to these forward-looking statements that might reflect events or circumstance occurring after the date of this release or those that might reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events.

Note:

(1) According to the definition of "Balance Sheet" under the Financial Accounting Standard Board ("FASB") Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") 210-10-20, cash equivalents are short-term, highly liquid investments that are readily convertible to cash. Only investments with original maturities of three months or less when purchased qualify under that definition. Therefore, the fixed deposits maturing over three months in amount of $10.0 million and $89.6 million as at September 30, 2017 and December 31, 2016, respectively, are not classified as cash and cash equivalents but are separately disclosed as short-term investments in the balance sheet.
(2) Capitalization on project investment was $7.4 million for Q3 2017, totaling $12.3 million for the nine months ended September 30, 2017 and our accumulated project investment was $51.7 million up to September 30, 2017.
(3) Accumulated other comprehensive loss represented foreign currency translation adjustment.
