4. Potential risk

(1) Policy and industry risk

In order to consolidate the achievements of supply side reform and establish the goals of "carbon peak and carbon neutrality", thenational policy will continue to strictly control the addition of new steel production capacity and continuously eliminate outdatedproduction capacity through capacity replacement. However, due to the fact that capacity replacement mainly focuses on largeadvanced blast furnaces, electric furnaces, and converters, output efficiency has significantly improved. Therefore, the overcapacitysituation in the industry will not change in the short term, and the competitive environment in the industry remains severe.To cope with the above risks, firstly, it is necessary to enhance the awareness of market entities, closely monitor and timely studymacro policies, upstream and downstream industrial chains, and industry development changes, strengthen market prediction andanalysis, improve rapid response capabilities, and enhance the ability to resist market risks. The second is to take the market as thelead, fully leverage the advantages of production lines and products, enhance the "manufacturing+service" capabilities, promote deepoptimization and adjustment of product and channel structures, strengthen the promotion of first product and new product markets,and organize projects to replace imported products, expanding the high-end product cluster. The third is to enhance market awarenessand operational capabilities, deepen system and professional collaboration, enhance production and sales guarantee capabilities,adhere to seeking benefits from the market and collaboration, and continuously improve profitability and market competitiveness;The fourth is to focus on forging the "manufacturing+service" long board, continuously launching overall solutions for differentapplication scenarios, and meeting customer needs with high quality.

(2) Low carbon environmental risk

As the time for the steel industry to be included in the national carbon market for carbon trading compliance approaches, theecological environment department has put forward higher requirements for annual carbon emission reporting and verification work;Under the background of the "carbon peak and carbon neutrality" policy, downstream customers have put forward higherrequirements for the company's carbon reduction work; The EU Carbon Border Adjustment Mechanism (CBAM) bill has officiallycome into effect, requiring domestic steel product exporting companies to provide carbon emission related data.To address the aforementioned risks and demands, firstly, the Company will firstly accelerate the construction of a low-carbonmanagement system, promote the implementation of low-carbon action plans, apply comprehensive carbon reduction technologies,and focus on creating low-carbon product dedicated lines to meet customer carbon reduction needs. The second is to deepen theconstruction of the LCA system, standardize carbon data management, improve data quality, and meet verification and certificationrequirements. The third is to continuously build a low-carbon supply chain system, select low-carbon raw materials, and promote thelow-carbon process of procurement, production, transportation, and other processes.

Hence,we have identified the provision for inventory impairments as a key audit matter.According to the accounting policy of the Company, if the cost is in excess of the netrealizable value, impairment of inventories is recognized on the date of balance sheet.Net realizable value is determined based on the estimated selling price on normalbusiness terms deducted by the estimated costs to completion and the relatedexpenses.

2. How our audit addressed the Key Audit Matter

Our main procedures in relation to provision for inventory impairment includes:

(1) Understanding and assessing the management’s internal controls related toimpairment testing of inventories, and testing the effectiveness of key controlexecutions.

(2) Testing, on a sample basis during the inventory monitoring procedure, observingthe inventory status and checking the inventory age

(3) Recalculating the impairment of inventories at the end of the reporting period

(4) Implementing the analysis procedure to determine whether there is a significantdifference between the estimated selling price and the market price, and examiningwhether there is a significant difference between the post-period selling price and theestimated price in conjunction with a subsequent-event audit.

(5) Evaluating the reasonableness of carrying value of the inventory as at 31December 2023 by analyzing manufacturing costs of current inventories.

(6) Inspecting whether the related information of inventory impairments provision isproperly, appropriately and adequately presented and disclosed in the financialstatements.(II) Recognition of RevenueThe disclosures related to the recognition of revenue are disclosed in Notes III.26 andV.42 to the financial statements.

1. Descriptions of the matter

In 2023, the revenue was RMB 113.761 billion in the consolidated financialstatements. Considering that the revenue has a significant impacted on the financial

statements of the Company and steel price could exert a great influence on the profitsof the Company since the steel industry is a cyclical industry, we regarded therecognition of revenue as a key audit matter.

2. How our audit addressed the Key Audit Matter

Our main procedures in relation to recognition of revenue includes:

(1) Understanding and assessing the management’s internal controls related torecognition of revenue, and testing the effectiveness of key control executions.

(2) Assessing whether the revenue recognition conditions, methods and timecomplied with the related standards in Accounting Standards for BusinessEnterprises.

Other InformationThe management of the Company is responsible for the other information. The otherinformation comprises the information included in the Annual Report of 2023, otherthan the financial statements and our auditor’s report thereon.Our opinion on the financial statements does not cover the other information and wedo not express any form of assurance conclusion thereon.In connection with our audit of the financial statements, our responsibility is to readthe other information and, in doing so, consider whether the other information ismaterially inconsistent with the financial statements or our knowledge obtained in theaudit or otherwise appears to be materially misstated.Based on the work we have performed on other information we obtained before theaudit report date, if we conclude that there is material misstatement of otherinformation, we are required to report that fact. We have nothing to report in thisregard.V. Responsibilities of the Management and Those Charged with Governance forthe Financial StatementsManagement of the Company is responsible for the preparation and fair presentationof the financial statements in accordance with Accounting Standards for Business

Enterprises, and designing, implementing and maintaining internal control asmanagement determines is necessary to enable the preparation of financial statementsthat are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud or error.In preparing the financial statements, the management is responsible for assessing theCompany’s ability to continue as a going concern, disclosing, as applicable, mattersrelated to going concern and using the going concern basis of accounting unless themanagement either intends to liquidate the Company or to cease operations, or has norealistic alternative but to do so.Those charged with governance are responsible for overseeing the Company’sfinancial reporting process.VI. Auditor’s Responsibilities for the Audit of the Financial StatementsOur objectives are to obtain reasonable assurance about whether the financialstatements as a whole are free from material misstatement, whether due to fraud orerror, and to issue an auditor’s report that includes our opinion. Reasonable assuranceis a high level of assurance, but is not a guarantee that an audit conducted inaccordance with China Standards on Auditing will always detect a materialmisstatement when it exists. Misstatements can arise from fraud or error and aregenerally considered material if, individually or in the aggregate, they couldreasonably be expected to influence the economic decisions of users taken on thebasis of these financial statements.As part of an audit in accordance with China Standards on Auditing, we exerciseprofessional judgment and maintain professional skepticism throughout the audit. Wealso:

(1) Identify and assess the risks of material misstatement of the financial statements,whether due to fraud or error, design and perform audit procedures responsive tothose risks, and obtain audit evidence that is sufficient and appropriate to provide abasis for our opinion. The risk of not detecting a material misstatement resulting fromfraud is higher than for one resulting from error, as fraud may involve collusion,forgery, intentional omissions, misrepresentations, or the override of internal control.

(2) Obtain an understanding of internal control relevant to the audit in order to designaudit procedures that are appropriate in the circumstances.

(3) Evaluate the appropriateness of accounting policies used and the reasonablenessof accounting estimates and related disclosures made by the management.

(4) Conclude on the appropriateness of management’s use of the going concern basisof accounting and, based on the audit evidence obtained, whether a materialuncertainty exists related to events or conditions that may cast significant doubt onthe Company’s ability to continue as a going concern. If we conclude that a materialuncertainty exists, we are required to draw attention in our auditor’s report to therelated disclosures in the financial statements or, if such disclosures are inadequate, to

modify our opinion. Our conclusions are based on the audit evidence obtained up tothe date of our auditor’s report. However, further events or conditions may cause theCompany to cease to continue as a going concern.

(5) Evaluate the overall presentation, structure and content of the financial statements,and whether the financial statements represent the underlying transactions and eventsin a manner that achieves fair presentation.

(6) Obtain sufficient appropriate audit evidence regarding the financial information ofthe entities or business activities within the Company to express an opinion on thefinancial statements. We are responsible for the direction, supervision andperformance of the group audit. We remain solely responsible for our audit opinion.We communicate with those charged with governance regarding, among other matters,the planned scope and timing of the audit and significant audit findings, includingany significant deficiencies in internal control that we identify during our audit.We also provide the governance with a statement that we have complied with relevantethical requirements regarding independence and to communicate with them allrelationships and other matters that may reasonably be thought to bear on ourindependence, and where applicable, related safeguards (if any).From the matters communicated with the governance, we determine those mattersthat were of most significance in the audit of the financial statements of the currentperiod and are therefore the key audit matters. We describe these matters in ourauditor’s report unless law or regulation precludes public disclosure about the matteror when, in extremely rare circumstances, we determine that a matter should not becommunicated in our report because the adverse consequences of doing so wouldreasonably be expected to outweigh the public interest benefits of suchcommunication.

If the acquirer’s interest in the net fair value of the acquiree’sidentifiable net assets exceeds the combination costs, the acquirer shall reassess the measurementand recognize any excess remaining in profit or loss after reassessment.Business combinations involving entities not under common control through multiple transactionsto achieve in stagesIn the consolidated financial statements, the combination cost is the sum of consideration paid atacquisition date and fair value of the acquiree’s equity held prior to acquisition date; the equity ofthe acquiree held prior to acquisition date shall be re-measured at the fair value at acquisition date,the difference between the fair value and book value shall be recognized as investment gain or lossfor the current period. Other comprehensive income and changes of other shareholder’s equityrelated with acquiree’s equity held prior to acquisition date shall be transferred to profit or loss forcurrent period at acquisition date, besides the other comprehensive income arising from theremeasurement of net liabilities or changes in net assets of the defined benefit plan by the investedparty, as well as other comprehensive income related to non trading equity instrument investmentsoriginally designated to be measured at fair value through other comprehensive income.

(3) Transaction costs for business combination

The overheads for the business combination, including the expenses of audit, legal services,valuation advisory, and other related administrative expenses, are recorded in profit or loss for thecurrent period when expenditure incurred. The transaction costs of equity or debt securities issuedas the considerations of business combination are included in the initial recognition amount of theequity or debt securities.

7. Critiria of control and method of preparing consolidated financial statements

(1) Critiria of control

The consolidation scope of the consolidated financial statements is determined based on control.Control refers to the company having the power over the invested entity, enjoying variable returnsthrough participating in related activities of the invested entity, and having the ability to use thepower over the invested entity to influence its return amount. When changes in relevant facts andcircumstances result in changes in the relevant elements involved in the definition of control, theCompany will conduct a reassessment.

When determining whether to include a structured entity in the scope of consolidation, theCompany takes into account all facts and circumstances, including evaluating the purpose anddesign of the establishment of the structured entity, identifying the types of variable returns, andevaluating whether to control the structured entity by participating in its related activities andassuming some or all of the variability of returns.

(2) Scope of consolidated financial statements

The scope of consolidated financial statements is determined on the control basis. Control existswhen the Company has power over the investee, rights to variable returns from involvement withrelated activities of investee and has the ability to affect its returns through its power over theinvestee. A subsidiary is an entity that is controlled by the Company (including separable parts of anenterprise or investee and structured entities controlled by the Company, etc).

(2) Method of preparing consolidated financial statements

The consolidated financial statements are based on the financial statements of the Company and itssubsidiaries, and are prepared by the Company in accordance with other relevant information. Inpreparing the consolidated financial statements, the Company and its subsidiaries are required toapply consistent accounting policy and accounting period, intra-group transactions and balancesshall be offset.The subsidiary acquired through a business combination involving entities under common controlin the reporting period shall be included in the scope of the consolidation from the beginning of thecombination date, the subsidiary’s income, expenses and profits should be included in theconsolidated results of operations and cash flows from the acquisition date respectively.The subsidiary acquired through a business combination involving entities not under commoncontrol in the reporting period, the subsidiary’s income, expenses and profits are included in theconsolidated results of operations, and cash flows are included in the consolidated cash flowstatement from the acquisition date to the end of the reporting date.The portion of the subsidiary’s equity that is not attributable to the Company is treated asnon-controlling interests and separately presented in the consolidated balance sheet withinshareholders’ equity. The portion of a subsidiary’s profit or loss that is attributable tonon-controlling interests presented in the consolidated income statement of net profit or loss as “netprofit attributable to non-controlling interests”. Where the amout of losses of a subsidiaryattributable to the non-controlling shareholders in the current period exceeds the share of theopening balance of owner’s equity of the subsidiary, the excess shall offset non-controllinginterests.

(3) Purchase of the minority equity in the subsidiary

The difference between the long-term equity investments costs acquired by the purchase of minorityequity and the share of the net assets that the subsidiaries have to continue to calculate from the dateof purchase or the date of consolidation in proportion to the new shareholding ratio is adjusted tothe capital reserve (equity premium), if the capital reserve is not sufficient, any excess is adjusted toretained earning. The difference between disposal of partial equity investment without losing

control over its subsidiary and the disposal of long-term equity investment corresponding to theshare of the net assets of the subsidiaries from the date of purchase or the date of consolidation is aswell.

(4) Loss of control of subsidiaries

If the control right is lost due to disposal of partial equity investment or other reasons, theremaining equity shall be re-measured according to its fair value on the date of losing control. Thedifference between the summary of consideration obtained from the disposal of the equity and thefair value of the remaining equity, less the difference between the share of the original assets andthe share of the net assets that have been continuously calculated from the date of purchase from thedate of the original shareholding, is included in the current period profit or loss and; if there is agoodwill for the subsidiary, the amount of the goodwill also shall be deducted.Other comprehensive income related to equity investments in the original subsidiary should beaccounted for on the same basis as the direct disposal of related assets or liabilities by the originalsubsidiary when control is lost. Other changes in other shareholders' equity related to the originalsubsidiary should be transferred to the current period's profit and loss when control is lost.

(5) Treatment of step disposal until the loss of control of subsidiaries

By stepping through multiple transactions to dispose of the equity investment in the subsidiary untilit loses control, if the clauses, conditions and economic impacts of the transaction satisfy one ormore of the following criteria, the Company will consider the transactions as a package transactionfor the accounting treatment:

①The transactions are entered simultaneously or in consideration of the mutual influence;

②Only the transactions as a whole can achieve one complete business outcome;

③The occurrence of a transaction is depending on the occurance of at least one of othertransactions;

④The transaction alone is not economical, however, it becomes economical to consider the othertransactions together.In the consolidated financial statements, the measurement of the remaining equity and treatment ofthe loss of disposal is in accordance to “Treatment of loss of control of subsidiaries” as describedabove. The difference between the disposal consideration and the related share of net assets of thesubsidiaries, which has been continuously calculated since the purchase date corresponding to theequity disposal should be treated as follows:

①When it is a package transaction, the difference shall be recognized as the other comprehensiveincome and transferred to the current period profit or loss of control when the control is lost

②When it is not a package transaction, the difference shall be recorded to capital reserve (sharepremium) as equity transaction and could not be transferred to the current period profit or loss ofcontrol when the control is lost.

8. Joint arrangement and joint operations

Joint arrangement refers to an arrangement under the joint control of two or more entities. The joint

arrangement of the Company is classified as either a joint operation or a joint venture.

(1) Joint operation

Joint operation is a joint arrangement whereby the Company have rights to the assets, andobligations for the liabilities, relating to the arrangement.The Company recognizes the following items in relation to its interest in a joint operation inaccordance with CAS:

A. its solely-held assets, and its share of any assets held jointly;B. its solely-assumed liabilities, and its share of any liabilities incurred jointly;C. its revenue from the sale of its share of the output arising from the joint operation;D. its share of the revenue from the sale of the output by the joint operation;E. its solely-incurred expenses, and its share of any expenses incurred jointly.

(2) Joint venture

A joint venture is a type of joint arrangement whereby the Company that has joint control of thearrangement has rights to the net assets of the joint venture.The Company conducts accounting treatment for the investment of joint ventures in accordancewith the provisions of equity method accounting related to long-term equity investment.

9. Cash and cash equivalents

Cash represents the cash on hand and deposits which are readily available for payment. Cashequivalents represent the Company’s short-term highly liquid investments which are readilyconvertible into known amounts of cash and subject to an insignificant risk of changes in value.

10. Foreign currency transactions and foreign currency statement translation

(1) Foreign currency transactions

When the foreign currency transactions are engaged, the amount shall be converted into thefunctional currency at the spot exchange rate on the transaction date (or using an exchange ratedetermined by a system reasonable method that is similar to the spot exchange rate on thetransaction date).On the balance sheet date, foreign currency monetary items are converted using the spot exchangerate on the balance sheet date. The exchange difference arising from the difference between the spotexchange rate on the balance sheet date and the initial recognition or the spot exchange rate on theprevious balance sheet date shall be recognized in the current period's profit and loss; For foreigncurrency non monetary items measured at historical cost, the spot exchange rate on the transactiondate shall still be used for translation; For foreign currency non-monetary items measured at fairvalue, the spot exchange rate on the date of fair value determination is used for translation. Thedifference between the converted amount in the functional currency and the original amount in thefunctional currency is recognized in the current period's profit or loss or other comprehensiveincome based on the nature of the non-monetary item.

(2) Foreign currency statement translation

On the balance sheet date, when converting the foreign currency financial statements of overseassubsidiaries, the asset and liability items in the balance sheet are converted using the spot exchangerate on the balance sheet date. Except for "undistributed profits", other items in shareholder equityare converted using the spot exchange rate on the date of occurrence.The income and expense items in the income statement are converted using the spot exchange rateon the transaction date (or using an exchange rate determined by a systematic and reasonablemethod that is similar to the spot exchange rate on the transaction date).All items in the cash flow statement are converted at the spot exchange rate on the date of cash flowoccurrence (or an exchange rate determined by a reasonable system method that is similar to thespot exchange rate on the date of cash flow occurrence). The impact of exchange rate changes oncash is treated as an adjustment item and is separately reflected in the cash flow statement under theitem "Impact of exchange rate changes on cash and cash equivalents".The difference arising from the conversion of financial statements is reflected in the "othercomprehensive income" item under the shareholder's equity item on the balance sheet.When disposing of overseas operations and losing control, the foreign currency translationdifferences related to the overseas operations listed under the shareholder's equity item in thebalance sheet shall be fully or proportionally transferred to the current profit and loss for disposal.

11. Financial instruments

A financial instrument is any contract that gives rise to a financial asset of one entity and a financialliability or equity instrument of another entity.

(1) Recognition and derecognition of financial instruments

The Company recognises a financial asset or a financial liability when, and only when, it becomes aparty to the contractual provisions of the instrument.A financial asset will be derecognized when it satisfies one or more of the following conditions:

① The contractual rights to receive cash flows from the financial asset expire;

② The financial asset has been transferred, and it satisfies the following conditions forderecognition.The financial liability (or part of it) is derecognized when its contractual rights (or part of it) expire.If the Company (as a debtor) makes an agreement with the creditor to replace the current financialliability with assuming a new financial liability, and contractual provisions are different insubstance, the current financial liability shall be derecognized and a new financial liability shall berecognized.All financial assets purchased or sold in regular way are recognised or derecognised on the tradingdate when the Company commits to purchase or sell the asset.

(2) Classification and measurement of financial assets

The Company classifies its financial assets, based on the entity's business model for managing the

financial assets and the contractual cash flow characteristics of the financial assets, as financialassets at amortized cost, financial assets at fair value through other comprehensive income andfinancial assets at fair value through profit or loss.Financial assets are measured at fair value at initial recognition. For financial assets measured atfair value with changes recognized in the current period's profit or loss, the relevant transactioncosts are directly recognized in the current period's profit or loss; For other categories of financialassets, relevant transaction costs are included in the initial recognition amount. The initialrecognition amount of accounts receivable arising from the sale of products or provision of services,which do not include or consider significant financing components, shall be the expected amount ofconsideration that the company is entitled to receive.Financial assets measured at amortized costThe Company shall classify financial assets that meet the following conditions and are notdesignated as financial assets at fair value through profit or loss as financial assets measured atamortized cost:

? The financial asset is held whose objective is to collect contractual cash flows;? The contractual terms of the financial asset give rise on specified dates to cash flows that aresolely payments of principal and interest on the principal amount outstanding.After initial recognition, this type of financial asset using effective interest rate method to bemeasured at amortized cost. The gain or loss generated by the financial assets measured atamortized cost and not part of any hedging relationship shall be accounted in the profit or loss forthe year when the financial assets are derecognized, amortized by effective interest method orrecognized impairment.Financial assets measured at fair value through other comprehensive incomeThe Company shall classify financial assets that meet the following conditions and are notdesignated as financial assets at fair value through profit or loss as financial assets measured at fairvalue through other comprehensive income:

? The financial asset is held within a business model whose objective will be achieved by bothcollecting contractual cash flows and trading financial assets;? The contractual terms of the financial asset give rise on specified dates to cash flows that aresolely payments of principal and interest on the principal amount outstanding.After initial recognition, the financial assets are subsequently measured at fair value. Interest,impairment loss/gain and exchange loss/gain calculated by the effective interest rate method arerecognised in profit or loss, while other profit or loss shall be recognised in other comprehensiveincome. When derecognized, the accumulated profit or loss previously recognised in othercomprehensive gains shall be transferred to current profit or loss.Financial assets measured at fair value through profit or lossIn addition to the aboving financial assets which are measured at amortized cost or at fair valuethrough other comprehensive income, the Company classifies all other financial assets as financialassets measured at fair value through profit or loss. In order to eliminate and significantly reduceaccounting mismatches, the Company irrevocably designates some financial assets that should be

measured at amortized cost or at fair value through other comprehensive income as financial assetsat fair value through profit or loss during the initial recognition.After initial recognition, the financial assets are subsequently measured at fair value, and the profitor loss (including interest and dividend income) generated shall be recognised in current profit orloss, unless the financial assets are part of the hedging relationship.The Company evaluates the characteristics of the contract cash flow of financial assets to determinewhether the contract cash flow generated by the relevant financial assets on a specific date is only topay principal and the interest, which is based on the amount of unpaid principal. Among them,principal refers to the fair value of financial assets at initial recognition; interest includes theconsideration of time value of money, credit risk related to the unpaid principal in a specific period,and other basic credit risks, costs and profits. Additionally, the Company evaluates the terms andconditions of the contracts that may alter time distribution or amount of cash flow in financial assetcontracts to determine whether they satisfy the requirements of the aboving contract cash flow’scharacteristics.Only when the Company changes its business model of managing financial assets, all the financialassets affected shall be reclassified on the first day of the first reporting period after the businessmodel alteration, otherwise, financial assets shall not be reclassified after initial recognition.

(3) Classification and measurement of financial liabilities

The Company classifies its financial liabilities at initial recognition as financial liabilities measuredat fair value through profit or loss and financial liabilities at amortized cost. With respect tofinancial liabilities not classified as at fair value through profit or loss, transactions costs arecharged to initial recognition cost.Financial liabilities measured at fair value through profit or lossFinancial liabilities at fair value through profit or loss, including financial liabilities held for tradingand those are designated as at fair value through profit or loss at initial recognition. For thesefinancial liabilities, they are subsequently measured at fair value and gains or lossess from thechange of fair value and related dividend and interest expense are recognized in profit or loss for theyear.Financial liabilities measured at amortized costOther financial liabilities are subsequently measured at amortized cost using the effective interestmethod, the gains and losses arising from derecognition or amortization is recognised in profit orloss for the year.Distinction between financial liabilities and equity instrumentsThe financial liability is the liability that satisfies one of following cateria:

① Contractual obligation to deliver cash or other financial instruments to another entity.

② Under potential adverse conditions, contractual obligation to exchange financial assets orfinancial liabilities with other entity.

③ The contract that will or may be settled in the entity’s own equity instruments and is anon-derivative for which the entity is or may be obliged to deliver a variable number of the entity’s

own equity instruments.

④ The derivative contract that will or may be settled in the entity’s own equity instruments otherthan by the exchange of a fixed number of the entity’s own equity instruments for a fixed amount ofcash or other financial assets.Equity instrument is the contract that evidences the residual equity in the assets of an entity afterdeducting all of its liabilities.If the Company cannot unconditionally avoid fulfilling a contractual obligation by delivering cashor other financial assets, the contractual obligation satisfies the definition of financial liability.If the financial instrument must or could be settled by the Company’s own equity instrument, theCompany should consider whether the Company’s equity instrument as the settlement instrument isa substitute of cash or other financial assets or the residual equity in the assets of an entity afterdeducting all of its liabilities. If it is the former one, the financial instrument is the Company’sfinancial liability; if it is the latter one, the tool is the equity instrument of the Company.

(4) Fair value of financial instruments

For the determination method of fair value of financial assets and financial liabilities, please refer toNote III.12.

(5) Impairment of financial assets

The Company performs impairment assessment and recognizes loss allowance for the followingfinancial assets based on the expected credit losses.? Financial assets measured at amortized cost;? Debt investment and trade receivables measured at fair value through other comprehensiveincome;? Contract assets as defined in Accounting Standards for Enterprises No.14- Revenues;? Lease receivables;? Financial guarantee contracts (expect for the contracts measured at fair value through profit orloss, financial assets transformation not qualify for derecognition and continuing involvementof transferred financial assets).Measurement of expected credit lossThe expected credit loss refers to the weighted average of the credit loss of financial instrumentsthat are weighted by the risk of default. Credit loss refers to the difference between all contractualcash flows receivable from the contracts and all cash flows expected to be received, that is, thepresent value of all cash shortages.The Company considers the reasonable and basis information about past events, current situationand forecast of future economic situation, calculates the probability weighted amount of the presentvalue of the difference between the receivable cash flow of the contract and the expected cash flowwith the risk of default as the weight, and confirms the expected credit loss.The Company separately measures the expected credit losses of financial instruments at different

stages. The credit risk on a financial instrument has not increased significantly since initialrecognition, which is in Stage I. The Company measures the loss provision in accordance withexpected credit losses for the next 12 months. If the credit risk of financial instruments hasincreased significantly since the initial recognition, but no credit impairment has occurred, which isin Stage II. The Company measures the loss provision in accordance with the expected credit lossesfor the whole lifetime of the financial instrument. If the financial instrument has occurred creditimpairment since initial recognition, which is in Stage III, and the Company measures the lossprovision in accordance with the expected credit losses for the whole lifetime of the financialinstrument.For the financial instruments with lower credit risk at the balance sheet date, the Company assumesthat the credit risk has not increased significantly since the initial recognition, and measures the lossprovision in accordance with expected credit losses for the next 12 months.The whole lifetime expected credit loss, refers to the expected credit loss caused by all possibledefaults during the whole expected lifetime. The 12-month expected credit losses, refer to theexpected credit loss caused by all possible defaults during the next 12 months after balance sheetdate (if the expected duration of financial instrument is less than 12 months, then for the expectedduration), which is part of the whole lifetime expected credit losses.When measuring the expected credit loss, the maximum maturity period that the Company needs toconsider is the maximum contract maturity period (including the consideration of option of renewal)the enterprise facing credit risk.For financial instruments in Stage I, Stage II and with lower credit risk, the Company calculatesinterest income on the basis of the book balances without deduction of impairment provisions andwith effective interest rates. For financial instruments in Stage III, the Company calculates interestincome on the basis of the book balances minus the impairment provision and with effective interestrate.For accounts receivable such as notes receivable, accounts receivable, accounts receivable financing,and other receivables, if the credit risk characteristics of a certain customer are significantlydifferent from those of other customers in the portfolio, or if there is a significant change in thecredit risk characteristics of that customer, the Company will make a provision for bad debts on asingle item for that receivables. Except for accounts receivable with individual provision for baddebts, the Company divides accounts receivable into combinations based on credit riskcharacteristics and calculates bad debt provisions on the basis of the combination.Notes Receivable and Accounts ReceivableFor notes receivable, accounts receivable, whether or not there are significant financing elements,the Company always measures the loss provision in accordance with the whole lifetime expectedcredit losses.If the expected credit loss information of the the independent financial asset cannot be evaluated bya reasonable cost, the Company divides and combines notes receivable and accounts receivableaccording to the characteristics of credit risk. On the basis of the combination, the Companycalculates the expected credit losses. The basis of determining combination is as follows:

A. Notes receivable? Notes receivable combination 1: Bank acceptances notes with higher credit ratings

? Notes receivable combination 2: Bank acceptances notes with lower credit ratings and

Commercial acceptancesB. Accounts receivable: Accounts of receivable-tradeFor the notes receivable divided into portfolios, the Company refers to historical credit lossexperience, combines current conditions with predictions of future economic conditions, calculatesexpected credit losses through default risk exposure and expected credit loss rate over the entireduration.For accounts receivable divided into combinations, the Company refers to historical credit lossexperience, combines current conditions with predictions of future economic conditions, andprepares a comparison table between the aging/overdue days of accounts receivable and theexpected credit loss rate for the entire existence period to calculate the expected credit loss. The ageof accounts receivable shall be calculated from the date of recognition.Other receivablesAccording to the characteristics of credit risk, the Company divides other receivables into servalcombinations. On the basis of the combination, the Company calculates the expected credit losses.The basis of determining the combination is as follows:

? Other receivables Combination 1: Imprest and deposit, etc.? Other receivables Combination 2: Other current accountFor other receivables divided into portfolios, the Company calculates expected credit losses basedon default risk exposure and expected credit loss rate over the next 12 months or the entire duration.For other receivables grouped by aging, the aging shall be calculated from the date of recognition.Debt investments and other debt investmentsFor debt investments and other debt investments, the Company calculates expected credit lossesbased on the nature of the investment, various types of counterparty and risk exposure, default riskexposure, and expected credit loss rate for the next 12 months or the entire duration.Assessment of Significant Increase in Credit RiskBy comparing the default risk of financial instruments on balance sheet date with the default risk oninitial recognition date, the Company determines the relative change of default risk of financialinstruments during the expected lifetime of financial instruments to evaluate whether the credit riskof financial instruments has increased significantly since the initial recognition.When determining whether credit risk has increased significantly since the initial recognition, theCompany considers reasonable and valid information, including forward-looking information,which can be obtained without unnecessary additional costs or efforts. Information considered bythe Company includes:

? The debtor cannot pay principal and interest on the expiration date of the contract;? Serious deterioration of external or internal credit ratings (if any) of financial instruments that

have occurred or are expected to occur;

? Serious deterioration of the debtor’s operating results that have occurred or are expected to

occur;? Changes in the existing or anticipated technological, market, economic or legal environmentwill have the significant negative impact on the debtor’s repayment capacity.According to the nature of financial instruments, the Company evaluates whether credit risk hasincreased significantly on the basis of an independent financial instrument or a combination offinancial instruments. When assessing on the basis of the combination of financial instruments, theCompany can classify financial instruments based on common credit risk characteristics, such asoverdue information and credit risk rating.If the delay exceeds 30 days, the Company determines that the credit risk of financial instrumentshas increased significantly.Financial assets that have occured credit impairmentOn the balance sheet date, the Company assesses whether credit impairment has occurred infinancial assets measured at amortized cost and debt investments measured at fair value throughother comprehensive income. When one or more events adversely affect the expected future cashflow of the financial assets occur, the financial assets transfer to the financial assets with creditimpairment. Evidence of credit impairment of financial assets includes the following observableinformation:

? Issuer or debtor suffer from significant financial difficulties;? Debtor breaches any of the contractual stipulations, for example, fails to pay or delays the

payment of interests or the principal, etc.;? In consideration of economic situationand contract related to the financial difficulties of the

debtor, the Company grants concessions to the debtor that will not be made under any other

circumstances.? Debtor is probable to go bankrupt or undergo other financial restructuring.? Financial difficulties of issuer or debtor lead to the disappearance of financial assets active

market.Presentation of expected credit loss reserveIn order to reflect the changes happened to the credit risk of financial instruments since the initialrecognition, the Company recalculates the expected credit loss on each balance sheet date. Theincrease or reversal of the loss provision resulting therefrom is recognised as an impairment loss orgain in the current profit or loss.For financial assets measured at amortized cost, loss provisionoffsets the carrying amount of the financial assets presentated on the balance sheet; for debtinvestments measured at fair value through other comprehensive income, the Company recognizesits loss provision through other comprehensive income and does not offset the financial assets’carrying amount.Write offIf the Company no longer reasonably expects that the financial assets contract cash flow can berecovered fully or partially, the financial assets book balance will be reduced directly. Such

reduction constitutes derecognition of the financial assets. The situation usually occurs when theCompany determines that the debtor has no assets or income to generate sufficient cash flows topay the amount to be reduced. However, in accordance with the Company’s procedures forrecovering due payment, the financial assets reduced may still be affected by enforcement activities.If the reduced financial assets can be recovered later, the returns as impairment losses shall berecorded in the profit or loss.

(6) Transfer of financial assets

Transfer of financial assets is the transfer or delivery of financial assets to another entity (thetransferee) other than the issuer of financial assets.A financial asset is derecognised when the Company has transferred substantially all the risks andrewards of the asset to the transferee. A financial asset is not derecognised when the Companyretains substantially all the risks and rewards of the financial asset.When the Company has neither transferred nor retained substantially all the risks and rewards of thefinancial asset, it either (i) derecognises the financial asset and recognises the assets and liabilitiescreated in the transfer when it has not retained control of the asset; or (ii) continues to recognise thetransferred asset to the extent of the Company’s continuing involvement, in which case, theCompany also recognises an associated liability.

(7) Offsetting of financial assets and financial liabilities

When the Company has currently enforceable legal rights to offset the recognized financial assetsand financial liabilities, and there is an intention to settle on a net basis or to realize the financialassets and settle the financial liabilities, the financial assets and financial liabilities shall bepresented in balance sheet with the amount after offsets. Besides, the financial assets and financialliabilities shall be presented separately in balance sheet and are not allowed to be offset.

12. Fair value measurement

Fair value is the price that would be received to sell an asset or paid to transfer a liability in anorderly transaction between market participants at the measurement date.The Company measures related assets or liabilities at fair value and assumes that selling assets ortransferring liabilities in an orderly transaction in the principal market of related assets or liabilities;in the absence of a principal market, the Company assumes the transaction in the mostadvantageous market. Principal market (or the most advantageous market) is the market that theCompany can enter into on measurement date. The Company adopts the presumptions used bymarket participants in achieving the maximum economic value of pricing the assets or liabilities.For financial assets or financial liabilities in the active market, the Company uses the quoted pricein active market as fair value. Otherwise, the Company uses valuation technique to determine thefair value.Fair value measurement of non-financial assets considers market participants’ ability to generateeconomic benefits by using the assets in its highest and best use or by selling it to another marketparticipant that would use the asset in its highest and best use.The Company adopts the valuation techniques that are appropriate under current circumstances andfor which sufficient data and other supporting information are available to measure fair value,

giving priority to the use of relevant observable inputs, and using unobservable inputs only if theobservable inputs are unavailable or not feasible to obtain.All assets and liabilities for which fair value is measured or disclosed in the financial statements arecategorized within the fair value hierarchy, described as follows, based on the lowest level inputthat is significant to the fair value measurement as a whole: Level 1 inputs are quoted (unadjusted)market prices in active markets for identical assets or liabilities; Level 2 inputs are observableinputs for related assets or liabilities, either directly or indirectly other than the inputs within Level1; Level 3 inputs are unobservable inputs for related assets or liabilities.For assets and liabilities that are recognized in the financial statements on a recurring basis, theCompany determines whether transfers have occurred between levels in the hierarchy byreassessing categorization at the end of each reporting period.

13. Inventories

(1) Classification

Inventories of the Company include raw materials, finished goods, lower-valued consumables andself-made semi-finished goods, etc.

(2) Mesurement method of cost of delivered inventories

Inventories are quoted at actual costs when acquired. Raw materials, finished goods and self-madesemi-finished goods are determined on the weighted average basis.

(3) Determination basis and provision method for inventory impairment provisionOn the balance sheet date, inventory is measured at the lower of cost and net realizable value. Whenits net realizable value is lower than cost, a provision for inventory impairment is made.Net realisable value is the estimated selling price deducted by the estimated costs to completion, theestimated selling expenses and related taxes. The net realisable value is measured on the basis ofobtained verified evidences and considerations for the purpose of holding inventories and the effectof post balance sheet events.The Company usually makes provisions for inventory impairment based on individual inventoryitems. For inventory with a large quantity and low unit price, provision for inventory impairmentshall be made according to the inventory category.On the balance sheet date, if the factors affecting the previous write down of inventory value havedisappeared, the provision for inventory impairment shall be reversed within the originallyprovisioned amount.

(4) Inventory system

Inventories are accounted for using the perpetual inventory system.

(5) Amortization method for consumables

Low-valued consumables are charged with the one-off amortization method and multi-stageamortization method at consumption.

14. Long-term equity investments

Long-term equity investments consist of equity investments in subsidiaries, joint ventures andassociates. An associate is an enterprise over which the Company has significant influence.

(1) Recognition of initial investment cost

Long-term equity investment from the business combination: For a long-term equity investmentacquired through a business combination under common control, the initial investment cost of thelong-term equity investment shall be the absorbing party’s share of the carrying amount of theowners’ equity of the party being absorbed in the consolidated financial statements of the ultimatecontrolling party at combination date. For business combination involving entities not undercommon control, the initial investment cost of long-term equity should be the cost of acquisition.Long-term equity investment from other methods:for a long-term equity investment acquired bypaying cash, the initial investment cost shall be the actual purchase price paid; for those acquired bythe issue of equity securities, the initial investment cost shall be the fair value of the equitysecurities issued.

(2) Subsequent measurement and recognition of profit or loss

The cost method is applied for the investment of subsidiaries unless the investment satisfies theconditions of held for sale; the equity method is applied for the investment of joint ventures andassociates.When the cost method is adopted in long-term equity investments, except for cash dividends orprofit distributions declared but not yet distributed in the purchase price or consideration ofobtaining the investment, profits or cash dividends declared to be distributed by the investee shouldbe recognised as investment income in the current period.When the equity method is adopted in long-term equity investments, the initial cost of aninvestment in excess of the share of investee’s fair value on identifiable net assets remainsunchanged; the initial cost of the investment that falls short of the share of investee’s fair value onidentifiable net assets shall be adjusted, for the difference which had been charged to current profitor loss.When the equity method is adopted, the Company recognises its share of the investee’s profit orloss, as well as its share of the investee’s other comprehensive income, as investment income or lossand other comprehensive income, and adjusts the carrying amount of the investment accordingly;the investor’s share of profit distributions or cash dividends declared by the investee is deductedfrom the carrying amount of the investment. For the changes of equity in an investee other thanprofit or loss, the investor adjusts the carrying amount of the investment and recognised it in capitalreserve (other capital reserves). The recognition of the investee’s results should be based on the fairvalues of the individual identifiable assets of the investee according to the Company’s accountingpolicies and accounting period. Additionally, the recognition should be based on the adjusted net profitof the investee.If the Company has significant influences or can implement joint control over investees due toadditional investment, the initial investment cost is recognized as the sum of the fair value of theoriginal portion of equity investment and the additional investment cost under equity method on thetransformation date. The accumulated fair value changes accounted in other comprehensive incomeof non tradable equity instrument investment which is initially classified as fair value through othercomprehensive income are transferred to retained earnings while accounting by equity methodinstead.

If the Company loses control of an investee with joint control or significant influence retained afterpartial disposal of its shares, the remaining equity after disposal should be accounted in accordancewith the rules “CASBE 22-Recognition and Measurement of Financial Instruments” and thedifference between the fair value on the day of losing control and the book value is recognised inprofit or loss. For the other comprehensive income recognized by equity investment under theequity method, the basis of the accounting treatment is the same as that on disposal of related assetsor liabilities by the investee, the amount recognised in the equity on the changes in other equitymovements should be all charged to the profit or loss for the year.If the Company loses control of an investee after partial disposal of its shares, the remaining equityafter disposal has joint control or significant influence over the investee, the equity method shall beadopted and the remaining equity shall be deemed to be recognized under equity method since theacquisition date; if the remaining equity has no joint control or significant influence over theinvestee, the remaining equity after disposal should be accounted in accordance with therules“CASBE 22-Recognition and Measurement of Financial Instruments” and the differencebetween the fair value on the day of losing control and the book value is recognised in profit or loss.If the shareholding ratio of the Company is reduced due to the increase of investments of otherinvestors and thus the control is lost, but the joint control or significant influence can be exerted onthe investee, the Company should recognize the incremental shares of net assets according to thenew investments. The difference between the original book value of the long-term equityinvestment corresponding to the decrease in the shareholding ratio should be included in the currentprofit or loss; then, the equity shall be deemed to be recognized under equity method since theinvestment date and adjusted according to the new shareholding ratio.Unrealised profit or loss resulting from transactions between the Company and its associates orjoint ventures shall be calculated according to the proportion of its shareholding, which isattributable to the Company, and then to be recognized in investment income after offset. Whileunrealised profit or loss resulting from transactions between the Company and investee belongs toimpairment loss of transferred assets cannot be offset.

(3) Basis of determining the existence of joint control or significant influence over an investeeJoint control is the agreed sharing of control of an arrangement, which exists only when decisionsabout the relevant activities require unanimous consent of the parties sharing control. Indetermining whether there is a joint control, the first judge is determining whether the relevantarrangement is controlled collectively by all the participants involved or the group of theparticipants involved and then to determine whether the decisions related to the basic operatingactivities should require the unanimous consent of the participants involved. If all participants or thegroup of the participants involved must act consistently to determine the relevant arrangement, it isconsidered that all participants or the group of the participants control the arrangement. If two ormore participants in the collectively control of certain arrangement, it shall not be considered asjoint control. Protection of rights shall not be considered in determining whether there is jointcontrol.Significant influence is the power to participate in the financial and operating policy decisions ofthe investee but is not control or joint control over those policies. When determining whether thereis the significant influence over the investee, the voting rights held by the investors or the otherentites and the effect of potential voting rights if it can be converted into the equity of investee,including the effect of current convertible warrants, security option and convertible bonds.When the Company, directly or indirectly through subsidiaries, owns 20% of the investee (including

20% ) or more but less than 50% of the voting shares, it has significant impact on the investeeunless there is clear evidence to show that in this case the Company cannot participate in theproduction and business decisions of the investee, and has no significant influence; when theCompany owns 20% (excluding) or less of the voting shares, it is not considered to have significantimpacts on the investee in general, unless there is clear evidence to show that in this case theCompany can participate in the production and business decisions of the investee so as to have thesignificant influence.

(4) Method of impairment testing and impairment provision

For investment in subsidiaries, associates and joint ventures, refers to Note III, 21 for the method ofasset impairment provision.

15. Fixed assets

(1) Recognition of fixed assets

Fixed assets represent the tangible assets held by the Company for use in production of goods, usein supply of services, rental or for administrative purposes with useful lives over one accountingyear.Fixed assets are recognised when it is probable that the related future economic benefits will flowinto the company, and the cost can be measured reliably.Fixed assets of the Company are initially measured at actual costs in acquisition.The subsequent expenditure related to fixed assets is included in cost of the fixed assets when therelevant economic benefits are likely to flow into the Company and its cost can be measuredreliably; routine repair expenditure of fixed assets that do not meet the conditions for capitalizationis included in the profit and loss or the cost of relevant assets according to the beneficiaries when itoccurs. The book value of the replaced part shall be derecognized.

(2) Depreciation of fixed assets

Depreciation of the fixed assets is calculated on the straight-line basis. The fixed asset isdepreciated since the state of intended use and no longer depreciated when recognition is terminatedor being classified as non-current assets held for sale. Without considering impairment provision,the estimated useful lifetime, estimated residual values, and the annual depreciation rates of eachcategory of fixed assets are as follows:

CategoryEstimated useful life (year)Estimated residual rate (%)Annual depreciation rate (%)
Pant and buildings25-4353.80-2.21
Machinery and equipment12-2857.92-3.39
Vehicles1059.50
Electronic equipment1059.50
Industrial furnace1357.31
Metallurgical equipment1955.00
Others14-2256.79-4.32

The fixed assets that have been withdrawn for impairment provision shall also be deducted from theaccumulative amount of impairment provision to recognize depreciation rate.

(3) Impaitment test and impairment provision of fixed assets refer to Note III, 21.

(4) Useful lives, residual values and the depreciation method are reviewed by the Company at least ateach financial year end.Useful lives are adjusted if the expected useful lives are different from the original estimates; theestimated net residual values are adjusted if they are different from the original estimates.

(5) Disposal of fixed assets

The fixed assets are derecognied when the fixed assets are diposed or when it is not expected togenerate economic benefits through use or disposal of the fixed assets. The amount of the disposalincome from the sale, transfer, scrapping or damage of fixed assets after deducting its book valueand relevant taxes shall be included in the current profit and loss.

16. Construction in progress

Cost of construction in progress is determined based on actual project expenses, includingnecessary project expenses incurred during the construction period, borrowing costs that should becapitalized before the project reaches its intended usable state, and other related expenses.Self-built fixed assets are transferred to fixed assets while reaching the intended usable state, whichwere recognised in construction in progress before transfer to fixed assets and are not subject todepreciation.When the construction in progress reaches the predetermined usable state, it shall be transferred tofixed assets based on the actual cost of the project. For those that have reached the predeterminedusable state but have not yet processed the final accounts for completion, it shall be transferred tofixed assets based on the estimated value. After the final accounts for completion are processed, theoriginal estimated value shall be adjusted based on the actual cost, but the depreciation alreadyprovisioned shall not be adjusted.

TypesStandards and timing for transferring construction in progress to fixed assets
Machinery and equipmentAchieving the design requirements or contractual standards after installation and debugging
Plant and buildingsPreliminary acceptance is qualified and meets the predetermined usable state or the standards specified in the contract

Impairment provision of construction in progress refers to Note III. 21.

17. Materials for construction of fixed assets

The materials for construction of fixed assets of the Company refers to the material prepared forconstruction in progress, including engineering materials, equipments not yet installed and toolsprepared for production, etc.Purchase measured at cost, the recipients transfer to construction in progree, and the remaining

transfer to inventory after the completion of construction.Impairment provision of materials for construction of fixed assets refers to Note III, 21.Closing balance of materials for construction of fixed assets is presented in “Construction inprogress” in balance sheet.

18. Borrowing costs

(1) Principles of capitalising borrowing costs

All the borrowing costs that are directly attributable to construction or production of all qualifyingassets are capitalized and recorded in relevant assets costs. Other borrowing costs are treated as anexpense and recorded in the profit or loss. The capitalization of borrowing costs commences when:

① Expenditures for the assets are incurred, including paying cash, transferring non-cash assets orundertaking interest-bearing debt for acquisition or construction of the assets, which could becapitalized;

② Borrowing costs are incurred; or

③ The acquisition and construction activities that are necessary to bring the assets to get ready forthe intended use or sale have commenced.

(2) Capitalization period of borrowing costs

The capitalization of borrowing costs ceases when the asset being acquired or constructed issubstantially ready for its intended use or sale and borrowing costs incurred thereafter are treated asan expense to be recorded in the profit or loss.Capitalization of borrowing costs is suspended during extended periods in which the acquisition orconstruction of a fixed asset is interrupted abnormally and the interruption lasts for more than threemonths until the acquisition or construction is resumed; borrowing costs in normal interruptionperiod continue to be capitalized.

(3) Calculation of capitalization rate and amount of borrowing costs.

For specific borrowings, the borrowing costs eligible for capitalization are the actual borrowingcosts incurred during the current period deducted by any temporary interest or investment income;for general borrowings, the borrowing costs eligible for capitalization are determined by applying acapitalization rate to the weighted average of capital expenditure that exceeds the specificborrowings. The capitalization rate is calculated based on the weighted average interest rate ofgeneral borrowings.During the capitalization period, exchange differences on foreign currency specific borrowings shallbe capitalized; exchange differences on foreign currency general borrowings shall be recognized ascurrent profit or loss.

19. Intangible assets

(1) Valuation method, service life and impairment test

Intangible assets include land use rights, software and etc.

Intangible assets are measured at cost initially and its useful lifetime shall be analyzed andrecognized when obtained. An intangible asset with finite useful lifetime shall be amortized over theexpected useful life using method which can reflect the expected recognition of economic benefitsrelated to the assets when the intangible asset is available for use; an intangible asset whoseexpected recognition cannot be reliably determined is amortized at straight-line amortizationmethod; an intangible asset with indefinite useful lifetime shall not be amortized.The useful life, determination basis, and amortization method of various intangible assets are:

CategoryUseful life (years)Amortisation methodBasis for determining useful life
Software5-10Straight line methodExpected period for bringing economic benefits to the company
Land use rights40-50Straight line methodLegal useful life

The Company reviews the useful lives and amortization method of intangible assets with finiteuseful lifetime, adjusts original estimated amount and processes according to the accountingestimate change if there are any differences with original estimated, at least at the end of eachreporting period.The Company estimates an intangible asset can no longer bring future economic benefits at thebalance sheet date, and then the carrying amount of the intangible asset should be reversed to thecurrent profit or loss.For the impairment provision of intangible assets, refers to Note III, 21.

20. Research and development expenditure

The Company's R&D expenses are directly related to the R&D activities, including employeesalaries, technical service fees, testing fees, etc. The salaries of R&D personnel are allocated toR&D expenses based on project working hours.Expenditure on internal research and development projects is classified into expenditure on theresearch stage and expenditure on the development stage.Expenditure on the research stage is recognised in the profit or loss when incurred.Expenditure on the development stage is capitalized only when: the technical feasibility ofcompleting the intangible asset so that it is available for use or sale; the intention to complete theintangible asset is to use or sell it; the method of generating economic benefits by the intangibleassets, including that the intangible asset can be proved that the output or the intangible asset itselfhas market or, if it is to be used internally, the usefulness of the intangible asset also need to beproved; the availability of adequate technical, financial and other resources to complete thedevelopment and the ability to use or sell the intangible asset; the expenditure attributable to thedevelopment stage can be measured reliably. Otherwise, it shall be presented in the profit or loss.

The research and development projects of the Company will enter into the development stage aftermeeting the above conditions and passing through the studies of technical feasibility and economicfeasibility, and the projects approval.Capitalized expenditure on the development stage is presented as “Development expenditures” inthe balance sheet and shall be transferred to intangible assets when the project is completed to itsintended use state.

21. Impairment of assets

The impairment for the long-term equity investments, fixed assets, construction in progress,right-of-use asset, intangible assets, etc. (excluding inventories, deferred income tax assets andfinancial assets) of subsidiaries, associates and joint ventures are determined as follows:

The Company assesses whether any indicator of impairment exists as of the end of each reportingperiod, and, if yes, performs impairment test by estimation of the asset’s recoverable amount. Forgoodwill acquired in business combinations, intangible assets with indefinite lives and intangibleassets without intended use state, an annual impairment test is performed no matter whether there isany indicator of impairment.An asset’s recoverable amount is calculated as the higher of the asset’s fair value less costs to selland the present value of estimated future cash flows generated from the use of assets. Therecoverable amount is calculated on individual basis unless it is not applicable, in which case therecoverable amount is determined for the asset group to which the asset belongs. An asset group isrecognized based on whether the cash inflows generated by the asset group are largely independentto those of other assets or asset groups.When the recoverable amount of an asset or an asset group is less than its carrying amount, thecarrying amount is reduced to its recoverable amount. The reduction amount is charged to profit orloss and an impairment allowance is provided.In terms of impairment test of the goodwill, the carrying amount of the goodwill arising frombusiness combination shall be allocated to the related asset group in accordance with a reasonablebasis at acquisition date. Those that are difficult to be allocated to relevant assets shall be allocatedto relevant assets groups. Relevant assets or assets groups refer to those that can benefit from thesynergies of business combination and are not larger than the Company’s recognized reportingsegment.When there is an indication that the goodwill related asset and asset group are prone to impair, theCompany should execute impairment test for the asset and asset group excluding goodwill,calculate the recoverable amount and recognize the corresponding impairment loss. The Companyshould execute impairment test for the asset or asset group including goodwill and compare therecoverable amount with carrying amount, provision for impairment of assets shall be recognizedwhen the recoverable amount of assets is lower than its carrying amount.Impairment losses cannot be reversed in subsequent accounting periods after recognition.

22. Long-term prepaid expenses

The long-term prepaid expenses of the Company are recorded as the actual cost and evenlyamortized on straight-line basis over the expected beneficial period. For the long-term prepaid

expense items that cannot benefit the later accounting period, the amortized value is recognized inthe profit or loss.

23. Payroll and employee benefits payable

(1) The scope of employee benefits payable

Payroll and employee benefits payable are all forms of consideration given by an entity in exchangefor service rendered by employees or the termination of employment, including short-termemployee benefits, post-employment benefits, termination benefits and other long-term employeebenefits. The benefits that the Company provides to the spouses, children and dependents ofemployees, the late employees’ family and other beneficiaries also shall be deemed as payroll andemployee benefits payable.According to liquidity, employment benefits are presented separately as “Payroll and employeebenefits payable” and “Long-term payroll and employee benefits payable” in the balance sheet.

(2) Short-term employee benefits payable

A liability when an employee has provided service in exchange for employee benefits, such aswages, bonuses, social security contributions (including medical insurance, injury insurance,maternity insurance, etc.) and house funding to be paid is recognized as the current profit or loss orcosts of related assets.

(3) Post-employment benefits

Post-employment benefit plan includes defined contribution plan and defined benefit plan. Definedcontribution plan is the post-employment benefit plan under which the Company pays fixedcontributions into a separate fund and will have no future obligations to pay the contributions.Defined benefit plan is the post-employment benefit plan other than defined contribution plan.Defined contribution planDefined contribution plan includes basic pension insurance, unemployment insurance, andcorporate pension plans, etc.In addition to basic pension insurance, the Company has established an enterprise pension plan("Pension Plan") in accordance with the relevant policies of the national enterprise pension system,and employees can voluntarily participate in this pension plan. Except above, the Company has noother significant employee social security commitments.During the accounting period of service provided by the employee, the Company shall recognise thecontribution payable according to the defined contribution plan as the liability and record thecorresponding amount in the current profit or loss or the cost of the relevant asset.

(4) Termination benefits

The Company is required to recognize termination benefits with a corresponding charge to profit orloss at the earlier of when the entity can no longer withdraw an offer of those benefits and when itrecognizes any related restructuring costs.For implementing the internal retirement plan, the economic compensation before the officialretirement date belongs to termination benefits. From the date of ceasing service to the normal

retirement date, the wages of the internally retired employees and the social insurance premiums tobe paid are included in the current profit or loss one time. Economic compensation after the officialretirement date (such as normal pension) should be treated as post-employment benefits.

24. Provisions

If the contingent considerations or contingent liabilities satisfy the following conditionssimultaneously, a provision will be recognized by the Company:

(1) The obligation is a present obligation assumed by the Company; and

(2) It is probable that an outflow of resources embodying economic benefits will be required tosettle the obligation; and

(3) A reliable estimate can be made of the amount of the obligation.

Provisions are initially measured at the best estimate of the expenditure required to settle the presentobligation, after considering risks, uncertainties, present value, etc. If the impact of time value ofmoney is significant, the best estimate is determined as its present value of future cash outflow.Provisions shall be reviewed at the end of each reporting period and adjusted to reflect the currentbest estimate.If the settlement of provision is fully or partially compensated by a third party or the others, and thecompensated amount can be definitely received, then the provision can be recognised as assetseparately. The compensated amount shall not be greater than the carrying amount of the recognizedliability.

25. Share-based payments and equity instruments

(1) Category of share-based payments

The Company’s share-based payment is either equity-settled share-based payment or cash-settledshare-based payment.

(2) Determination of fair value of equity instruments

For the existence of an active market for options and other equity instruments granted by theCompany, the fair value is determined at the quoted price in the active market. For options andother equity instruments with no active market, option pricing model shall be used to estimate thefair value of the equity instruments. The following factors shall be taken into account using optionpricing models: A. the exercise price of the option; B. the validity period of the option; C. thecurrent market price of the share; D. the expected volatility of the share price; E. predicted dividendof the share; and F. risk-free rate of the option within the validity period.

(3) Recognition of vesting of equity instruments based on the best estimateOn each balance sheet date within the vesting period, the estimated number of equity instrumentsexpected to vest is revised based on the best estimate made by the Company according to the latestavailable subsequent information as to changes in the number of employees with exercisable rights.On the vesting date, the final estimated number of equity instruments expected to vest should equalthe actual number of equity instruments expected to vest.

(4) Accounting treatment of implementation, modification and termination of share-based paymentEquity-settled share-based payment shall be measured at the fair value of the equity instrumentsgranted to employees. If the right may be exercised immediately after the grant, the fair value ofequity instrument shall, on the date of the grant, be included in the relevant costs or expenses, andthe capital reserve shall be increased accordingly. If the right can not be exercised until the vestingperiod comes to an end or until the specified performance conditions are met, then on each balancesheet date within the vesting period, the services obtained in the current period shall, based on thebest estimate of the number of vested equity instruments, be included in the relevant costs orexpenses and the capital reserve at the fair value of the equity instrument on the date of the grant.After the vesting date, the Company make no adjustment to the relevant costs or expenses as well asthe total amount of the owner’s equities which have been confirmed.Cash-settled share-based payment shall be measured in accordance with the fair value of liabilitycalculated and recognised based on the shares or other equity instruments undertaken by theCompany. If the right may be exercised immediately after the grant, the fair value of the liabilityundertaken by the Company shall, on the date of the grant, be included in the relevant costs orexpenses, and the liabilities shall be increased accordingly. If the right may not be exercised untilthe vesting period comes to an end or until the specified performance conditions are met, on eachbalance sheet date within the vesting period, the services obtained in the current period shall, basedon the best estimate of the information about the exercisable right, be included in the relevant costsor expenses and the corresponding liabilities at the fair value of the liability undertaken by theCompany. On each balance sheet date and on each account date prior to the settlement of therelevant liabilities, the Company re-measures the fair value of the liabilities and include the changesin the current profits and losses.When there are changes in Company’s share-based payment plans, if the modification increases thefair value of the equity instruments granted, corresponding recognition of service increase inaccordance with the increase in the fair value of the equity instruments; if the modificationincreases the number of equity instruments granted, the increase in fair value of the equityinstruments is recognised as a corresponding increase in service achieved. Increase in the fair valueof equity instruments refer to the difference between the fair values of the modified date. If themodification reduces the total fair value of shares paid or not conductive to the use of otheremployees share-based payment plans to modify the terms and conditions of service, it willcontinue to be accounted for in the accounting treatment as if the change had not occurred, unlessthe Company cancelled some or all of the equity instruments granted.During the vesting period, if the cancelled equity instruments (except for failure to meet theconditions of the non-market vesting conditions) granted by the Company to cancel the equityinstruments granted amount treated as accelerated vesting of the remaining period should berecognised immediately in profit or loss, while recognising capital reserves. If employees or otherparties can choose to meet non-vesting conditions but they are not met in the vesting period, theCompany will treat them as cancelled equity instruments granted.

(5) Restricted stock

In the equity incentive plan, the Company grants restricted stocks to the incentivized objects, andthe incentivized objects first subscribe to the stocks. If the unlocking conditions specified in theequity incentive plan are not met in the future, the Company will repurchase the stocks at the preagreed price. If the restricted stocks issued to employees have completed the registration and capitalincrease procedures in accordance with relevant regulations, on the grant date, the Company shall

confirm the share capital and capital reserve (share premium) based on the subscription paymentsreceived from employees; Simultaneously, recognize treasury shares and other payables forrepurchase obligations.

26. Revenue

(1) General principle

Revenue is recognized when the Company has satisfied its performance obligations in the contract,that is, when the customer obtains control of the relevant goods or services.Where a contract has two or more performance obligations, the Company determines thestand-alone selling price at contract inception of the distinct good or service underlying eachperformance obligation in the contract and allocates the transaction price in proportion to thosestand-alone selling prices. The Company recognises as revenue the amount of the transaction pricethat is allocated to each performance obligation.If one of the following conditions is met, it belongs to fulfilling the performance obligation within acertain period of time; Otherwise, it belongs to fulfilling the performance obligation at a certainpoint in time:

① The customer simultaneously receives and consumes the benefits provided by the Company’sperformance as the Company performs;

② The customer can control the asset created or enhanced during the Company’s performance;

③ The Company’s performance does not create an asset with an alternative use to it and theCompany has an enforceable right to payment for performance completed to date.For performance obligation satisfied over time, the Company recognises revenue over time bymeasuring the progress towards complete satisfaction of that performance obligation. When theoutcome of that performance obligation cannot be measured reasonably, but the Company expectsto recover the costs incurred in satisfying the performance obligation, the Company recognisesrevenue only to the extent of the costs incurred until such time that it can reasonably measure theoutcome of the performance obligation.For performance obligation satisfied at a point in time, the Company recognises revenue at the pointin time at which the customer obtains control of relevant goods or services. To determine whether acustomer has obtained control of goods or services, the Company considers the followingindicators:

① The Company has a present right to payment for the goods or services, as the customer obtainsthe current payment obligation for the goods.

② The Company has transferred the legal title of the goods, as the customer has obtained the legaltitle of the goods.

③ The Company has transferred physical possession of the goods to the customer, as the customerhas obtained the physical possession of the goods.

④ The Company has transferred the significant risks and rewards of legal title of the goods to thecustomer, as the customer has obtained the significant risks and rewards of legal title of the goods.

⑤ The customer has accepted the goods or services.

⑥ Other indications that the customer has obtained control of goods.

(2) Specific recognition methods

Contracts for the sale of goodsContracts for the sale of goods between the Company and its customers usually only involves theperformance obligations of the transferring of the goods. The Company generally recognizesrevenue based on the following considerations, taking into account the timing of control transfer.This includes obtaining the current collection rights of the goods, the transfer of the main risks andrewards of the ownership of the goods, the transfer of the legal ownership of the goods, the transferof the physical assets of the goods, and the acceptance of the goods by the customer.Contracts for rendering of servicesThe service contract between the Company and its customers usually includes performanceobligations for labor services, technical consulting or technical services. As a result of thesatisfaction of the performance obligation the Company, the customers obtain and consume theeconomic benefits of the service while the Company provides the service simultaneously. TheCompany is entitled to recover from the accumulative performance of the contract that has beencompleted to date, except when progress of the performance cannot be reasonably determined. TheCompany determines the progress of the performance of the services provided in accordance withthe input method. When the progress of the performance cannot be reasonably determined, and thecosts incurred by the Company are expected to be compensated, the revenue will be recognizedbased on the amount of costs incurred, until the progress of the performance can be reasonablydetermined.

27. Contract cost

Contract costs are either the incremental costs of obtaining a contract with a customer or the costs tofulfil a contract with a customer.Incremental costs of obtaining a contract are those costs that the Company incurs to obtain acontract with a customer that it would not have incurred if the contract had not been obtained e.g.an incremental sales commission. The Company recognises as an asset the incremental costs ofobtaining a contract with a customer if it expects to recover those costs. Other costs of obtaining acontract are expensed when incurred.If the costs to fulfil a contract with a customer are not within the scope of inventories or otheraccounting standards, the Company recognises an asset from the costs incurred to fulfil a contractonly if those costs meet all of the following criteria:

① The costs relate directly to an existing contract or to a specifically identifiable anticipatedcontract, including direct labour, direct materials, allocations of overheads (or similar costs), coststhat are explicitly chargeable to the customer and other costs that are incurred only because theCompany entered into the contract;

② The costs generate or enhance resources of the Company that will be used in satisfying (or incontinuing to satisfy) performance obligations in the future;

③ The costs are expected to be recovered.

Assets recognised for the incremental costs of obtaining a contract and assets recognised for thecosts to fulfill a contract (the “assets related to contract costs”) are amortised on a systematic basisthat is consistent with the transfer to the customer of the goods or services to which the assets relateand recognised in profit or loss for the current period.The Company recognises an impairment loss in profit or loss to the extent that the carrying amountof an asset related to contract costs exceeds:

① Remaining amount of consideration that the Company expects to receive in exchange for thegoods or services to which the asset relates; less

② The costs that relate directly to providing those goods or services that have not yet beenrecognised as expenses.

28. Government grants

Government grants are recognized in profit or loss, when they are highly probable to be receivedand all conditions are fulfilled.If a government grant is in form of monetary asset, it is measured at the amount received orreceivable. If a government grant is in form of nonmonetary asset, it is measured at fair value of theasset. If the fair value cannot be reliably determined, it is measured at the nominal amount as RMB1.Asset-related government grants are recognized when the government document designates that thegovernment grants are used for constructing or forming long-term assets. Otherwise, thegovernment grants should be income-related.If the government document is inexplicit, the Company should recognize the part corresponding toassets value of government grants as asset-related government grants if the conditions are to formlong-term assets and the remaining part as income-related grants. As for indistinguishablegovernment grants, the whole should be recognized as income-related grants.Government grants related to assets are recognized as deferred income and are recognized in profitor loss in a reasonable and systematic manner over the useful life of the relevant assets.Government grants related to income, used to compensate for related costs or losses that havealready occurred, shall be included in the current period's profit and loss; If it is used to compensatefor related costs or losses in the future period, it shall be recognized in deferred income andrecognized in the current period's profit or loss or offset against related costs during the recognitionperiod of related costs or losses. Government grants measured at nominal amounts are directlyrecognized in the current period's profit and loss. The Company adopts a consistent approach forhandling the same or similar government grants businesses.Government grants related to daily activities are recognized in other income based on the essence ofeconomic transactions. Government grants unrelated to daily activities are included in nonoperating income.When the recognized government grants need to be returned, the carrying amount of the assets shallbe adjusted if the carrying amount of related assets is written down during the initial recognition; ifthere is the balance of related deferred income, the book balance of related deferred income shall be

written off, and the excess part shall be recognized in the current profit or loss; for the othercircumstances, the government grants shall be recognized in the current profit or loss directly.

29. Deferred tax assets and deferred tax liabilities

Income tax comprises current tax and deferred tax, and is normally recognized as income taxexpense in profit or loss, except for goodwill generated in a business combination or relateddeferred tax items that have been recognized directly in equity.Based on the differences between the carrying amount of an asset or liability in the statement offinancial position and its tax base, the Company adopts the liability method for the provision ofdeferred tax.A deferred tax liability is recognized in respect of all taxable temporary differences except thosearising from the following transactions:

(1) The initial recognition of goodwill; or the initial recognition of an asset or liability in atransaction which is not a business combination, and at the time of the transaction, affects neitheraccounting profit nor taxable profit (Excluding individual transactions that result in equal taxabletemporary differences and deductible temporary differences due to initially recognized assets andliabilities);

(2) As for the temporary differences associated with subsidiaries, joint ventures and associates: theCompany is able to control the timing of the reversal of the temporary difference and it is probablethat the temporary difference will not reverse in the foreseeable future.A deferred tax asset is recognized in respect of all deductible temporary differences to the extentthat it is probable that taxable profit will be available against which the deductible temporarydifference will be utilized except those arising from the initial recognition of an asset or liability ina transaction which:

(1) The transaction is not a business combination, and at the time of the transaction, affects neitheraccounting profit nor taxable profit (Excluding individual transactions that result in equal taxabletemporary differences and deductible temporary differences due to initially recognized assets andliabilities);

(2) As for deductible temporary differences associated with subsidiaries, joint ventures andassociates: a deferred tax asset is recognized to the extent that it is probable that the temporarydifference will reverse in the foreseeable future, and taxable profit will be available against whichthe temporary difference can be utilized.On the balance sheet date, the Company measures deferred income tax assets and liabilities at theapplicable tax rate during the expected period of asset recovery or liability settlement, and reflectsthe income tax impact of the expected method of asset recovery or liability settlement on thebalance sheet date.On the balance sheet date, the Company reviews the book value of deferred income tax assets. If itis likely that sufficient taxable income will not be obtained in the future period to offset the benefitsof deferred income tax assets, the book value of deferred income tax assets shall be written down.When it is highly possible to obtain sufficient taxable income, the amount of write down shall bereversed.On the balance sheet date, deferred income tax assets and deferred income tax liabilities are

presented at the net amount after offsetting when they simultaneously meet the followingconditions:

(1) The taxpayer within the company has the legal right to settle current income tax assets and

current income tax liabilities on a net basis;

(2) Deferred income tax assets and deferred income tax liabilities are related to the income taxlevied by the same tax administration department on the same taxpayer within the company.

30. Lease

(1) Identification of lease

On the commencement date of the contract, as the lessee or lessor, the Company evaluates whetherthe customer in the contract has the right to obtain almost all the economic benefits arising from theuse of the identified assets during the use period, and has the right to dominate the use of theidentified assets during the use period. If one party in the contract transfers the right to control theuse of one or more identified assets within a certain period in exchange for consideration, theCompany recognizes the contract as lease or includes lease.

(2) The Company as lessee

On the beginning date of the lease, the Company recognises right-of-use assets and lease liabilitiesfor all leases, except for short-term lease and low-value asset lease with simplified approach.For the right-of-use assets, refers to Note III.31.Lease liabilities are initially measured according to the present value of the unpaid lease paymentsat the beginning of the lease term calculated by the embedded interest rate of the lease. Where theembedded interest rate cannot be determined, the incremental loan interest rate shall be used as thediscount rate. Lease payments includes: fixed payments and in-substance fixed payments, andwhere the lease incentives exists, the lease payment is the payment amount less any lease incentivesreceivable; variable lease payments depending on index or ratio; the exercise price of a purchaseoption if the lessee is reasonably certain to exercise that option; payments for terminating the lease,if the lease term reflects the lessee exercising that option of terminating; and amounts expected tobe payable by the lessee under residual value guarantees. Subsequently, the interest expense on thelease liability for each period during the lease term is calculated using a constant periodic rate ofinterest and is recognised in current profit or loss. The variable lease payments that are not includedin the measurement of the lease liability are recognised in profit or loss when actually incurred.Short-term leaseShort-term leases refer to leases with a lease term of less than 12 months from the commencementdate, except for those with a purchase option.Lease payments of short-term leases are recognised in the cost of related assets or current profit orloss on a straight-line basis over the lease term.For short-term leasing, the Company selects the following types of assets that meet the conditionsfor short-term leasing based on the category of leased assets and adopts the simplified processingmethod mentioned above.Low-value asset lease

Low-value asset lease refers to the lease with lower value when the single leased asset is abrand-new asset.Lease payments of low-value asset lease are recognised in the cost of related assets or current profitor loss on a straight-line basis over the lease term.For a low-value asset lease, the Company chooses to adopt the above simplified approach accordingto the specific conditions of each lease.Lease modificationThe Company accounts for a lease modification as a separate lease when the modification occursand the following conditions are met: ① the lease modification expands the scope of lease byadding the right to use one or more of the leased assets; and ② the increased consideration isequivalent to the amount of the separate price for the expansion of the lease scope adjustedaccording to the conditions of the contract.Where the lease modification is not accounted for as a separate lease, on the effective date of thelease modification, the Company will reallocate the consideration of the contract after themodification, redefine the lease term, and remeasure the lease liability based on the present value ofthe lease payments after the modification and the revised discount rate.If a lease modification results in reduction in the scope of the lease or a shortening of the lease term,the Company reduces the carrying amount of the right-of-use asset accordingly and includes theprofit or loss related to the partial or complete termination of the lease is included in the currentprofits and losses.Other lease modifications result in a remeasurement of the lease liability, the Company adjusts thecarrying amount of the right-of-use asset accordingly.

(3) The Company as lessor

When the Company is a lessor, a lease is classified as a finance lease when the terms of the leasetransfer substantially all the risks and rewards of asset ownership to the lessee. All leases other thanfinancial leases are classified as operating leases.Finance leaseUnder finance lease, the Company accounts for finance lease receivables at the beginning of thelease term at the net lease investment, which is the sum of the unsecured residual value and thepresent value of the lease receipts outstanding at the commencement date of the lease, discounted atthe interest rate implicit in the lease. The Company as lessor calculates and recognises interestincome for each period of the lease term based on a fixed periodic interest rate. Variable leasepayments acquired by the Company as lessor that are not included in the net measurement of leaseinvestments are included in profit or loss for the period when actually incurred.Derecognition and impairment of finance lease receivables are accounted for in accordance with therequirements under the Accounting Standard for Business Enterprises No. 22 – Recognition andMeasurement of Financial Instruments and the Accounting Standards for Business Enterprises No.23 – Transfer of Financial Assets.Operating lease

Lease payments under operating lease are recognised in profit or loss on a straight-line basis overthe lease term. Initial direct costs incurred in relation to operating leases are capitalised andamortised over the lease term on the same basis as rental income and recognised in profit or loss forthe according period. The variable lease payments obtained in relation to operating leases that arenot included in the lease payments are recognised in profit or loss in the period when actuallyincurred.Lease modificationWhere the operating lease is modified, the Company accounts for the modification as a new leasefrom the effective date of the modification. The amount of lease receipts received in advance orreceivable in respect of the lease prior to the modification is treated as a receipt under the new lease.Where a finance lease is modified and the following conditions are met, the Company accounts forthe modification as a separate lease: ① the lease modification expands the scope of lease byadding the right to use one or more of the leased assets; and ② the increased consideration isequivalent to the amount of the separate price for the expansion of the lease scope adjustedaccording to the conditions of the contract.Where a finance lease is modified and not accounted for as a separate lease, the Company accountsfor the modified lease in the following circumstances: ① If the modification effectives on thelease commencement date, the lease will be classified as an operating lease, the Company accountsas a new lease from the effective date of the lease modification, and the net amount of the leaseinvestment before the effective date of the lease modification shall be taken as the book value of theleased asset; ② If the modification effectives on the lease commencement date, the lease will beclassified as a finance lease, and the Company conducts accounting treatment in accordance withthe Accounting Standards for Business Enterprises No. 22 – Recognition and Measurement ofFinancial Instruments on modifying or renegotiating contracts.

31. Use-right assets

(1) Recognition conditions of use-right assets

Right-of-use assets refer to the right of the Company as the lessee to use the leased assets during thelease term.On the commencement date of the lease term, the use-right assets shall be initially measured at cost.The cost includes: the initial measurement amount of the lease liability; The lease payment made onor before the commencement date of the lease term, if there is a lease incentive, shall be deductedfrom the amount related to the lease incentive already enjoyed; Initial direct expenses incurred bythe Company as the lessee; The costs expected to be incurred by the Company, as the lessee, todismantle and remove the leased assets, restore the leased assets to the site where they are locatedor restore the leased assets to the state specified in the lease terms. As the lessee, the Company shallrecognize and measure the costs of demolition and restoration in accordance with the rules“CASBE13- Contingencies”. Subsequent adjustments are made for any remeasurement of lease liabilities.

(2) Depreciation method of use-right assets

The Company uses the straight-line method of depreciation. If the Company, as the lessee, canreasonably determine the ownership of the leased asset at the end of the lease term, depreciationshall be calculated and withdrawn during the remaining service life of the leased asset. Where it isnot reasonably certain that the ownership of the leased asset can be acquired at the end of the lease

term, depreciation shall be calculated and withdrawn during the period during which the lease termand the remaining service life of the leased asset are shorter.

(3) For the impairment test method and impairment provision method of use-right assets, please refer toNote III. 20.

32. Safety fund and maintenance fee

The Company has accrued safety production fees in accordance with the relevant provisions of theMinistry of Finance and the Ministry of Emergency Management's Cai Zi [2022] No. 136. Thesafety production expenses and maintenance expenses are included in the cost of relevant productsor current profit and loss when accrued, and are also included in the "special reserve" account.When safety funds and maintenance fees are utilized in compliance with relevant regulations, if thecosts incurred can be categorized as expenditure, the costs incurred should be charged against thespecial reserve; if the reserve is used to build up fixed assets, the costs should be charged toconstruction in progress, and reclassified to fixed assets when the projects reach the status ready forintended use. Meantime, expenditures in building up fixed assets are directly charged against thespecial reserve with the accumulated depreciation recognized at the same amount and the fixedassets will not be depreciated in the future.

33. Share repurchase

The shares repurchased by the Company shall be managed as treasury shares before cancellation ortransfer, and all expenses related to repurchased shares shall be transferred to the cost of treasuryshares. The consideration and transaction costs paid in share repurchase reduce owner's equity, andno gains or losses are recognized when repurchasing, transferring, or canceling the company'sshares.When transferring treasury shares, the difference between the actual amount received and the bookvalue of the treasury shares shall be included in the capital reserve. If the capital reserve isinsufficient to offset, the surplus reserve and undistributed profits shall be offset. Cancellation oftreasury shares shall reduce the share capital based on the face value and number of cancelledshares, and offset the capital reserve based on the difference between the book balance and facevalue of cancelled treasury shares. If the capital reserve is insufficient to offset, offset the surplusreserve and undistributed profits.

34. Significant accounting judgments and estimates

The Company provides continuous assessment of the reasonable expectations of future events, thecritical accounting estimates and key assumptions based on the historical experience and otherfactors. The critical accounting estimates and key assumptions that are likely to lead to significantadjustment risks of the carrying amount of assets and liabilities for the next accounting period arelisted as follows:

Classification of financial assetsThe major judgments of the Company involved in determining the classification of financial assetsincludes the analysis of business models and the characteristics of contract cash flows, etc.At the level of financial assets portfolio, the Company determines the business model for managingfinancial assets, taking into account factors such as methods of evaluating and reporting financialassets performance to key managers, the risks of affecting financial assets performance and risk

management methods, and the way in which relevant business managers are paid.In assessing whether the contract cash flow of financial assets is consistent with the basic lendingarrangements, the Company has the following judgments: whether the principal’s time distributionor amount may change during the lifetime for early repayment and other reasons; whether theinterest only includes the time value of money, credit risk, other basic lending risks and theconsideration with cost and profit. For example, whether the advance payment only reflects theunpaid principals and interests based on the unpaid principal, and reasonable compensation paid forthe early termination of the contract.Measurement of expected credit loss of account receivablesThe Company calculates the expected credit losses of accounts receivable through default riskexposure and expected credit losses rate, and determines the expected credit losses rate on the basisof default probability and default loss rate. In determining the expected credit losses rate, theCompany uses the experience of internal historical credit loss, and adjusts the historical data withcurrent situation and forward-looking information. In considering forward-looking information, theindicators include the risks of economic downturn, external market environment, technologicalenvironment and changes of customer conditions. The Company monitors and reviews regularly theassumptions related to the calculation of expected credit losses.Deferred tax assetsDeferred tax assets are recognized to the extent that it is probable that taxable profit will beavailable against which the deductible temporary difference and unused tax credit can be utilized.Significant management judgement is required to determine the amount of deferred tax assets thatcan be recognized, based upon the likely timing and level of future taxable profits together with taxplanning strategies.Determination of unlisted equity investment fair valueThe fair value of unlisted equity investment is the estimated future cash flow discounted by thecurrent discount rate of the project with similar terms and risk characteristics. The valuationrequires the Company to estimate the expected future cash flow and discount rate and is thereforeuncertain. Under limited circumstances, if the information used to determine the fair value isinsufficient, or the possible estimates of the fair value are widely distributed, and the cost representsthe best estimate of the fair value within the range, the cost could represent the appropriate estimateof the fair value within the distribution range.
