RMB1 Billion Beijing Real Estate Sale Agreement

Through its wholly owned subsidiary, Infoexcel Technology Limited ("Infoexcel"), TechFaith has entered into a share transfer agreement (the "Agreement") with Beijing Hongkungu Investment Company Limited ("Hongkungu"). Under the Agreement, Infoexcel will sell its 100% equity interest in Techfaith Intelligent Handset Technology (Beijing) Limited (the "Project Company") to Hongkungu for a total consideration of RMB1 billion (approximately US$144 million), payable in installments. The Project Company has also acquired certain land use rights related to a piece of land in Beijing comprising 139,650 square meters and is in the process of developing and constructing certain facilities on such premise. The consummation of the transaction pursuant to the Agreement is subject to certain customary closing conditions.

The Company will continue to own and manage its real estate portfolio consisting of 3 completed buildings in Hangzhou, two completed buildings in Shenyang and a variety of in progress construction, which is at various stages.

Miss Ouyang Yuping, TechFaith's Chief Financial Officer, said, "Our improved profitability directly reflects our further reduction in operating expenses by nearly 8.5% in 2016 compared to 2015, while we effectively leveraged our existing infrastructure and resources in pursuit of growth opportunities without added overhead costs. Actions we previously took to streamline our mobile business and shift resources to R&D, sales and customer support areas also helped us win attractive enterprise opportunities that carry higher profitability levels. At the same time, we closed the sale of three floors in one of our Beijing buildings and announced the agreement today with Hongkungu for the sale of our Beijing real estate projects. As a result of the Agreement, assets covered by the Agreement have been classified as assets held for sale, and its operating results are presented as net income from discontinued operations in our consolidated financial statements."

Mr. Deyou Dong, Chief Executive Officer of TechFaith, said, "We achieved a dramatic turnaround in our financial results underscoring the success of our continued execution on our business diversification. The powerful leverage of our strategic model is evidenced in our net income of US$0.96 per ADS, which we achieved for the full year 2016, with net income of US$1.07 per ADS coming in the second half of 2016. Our focus remains on driving operating costs lower, while evaluating and reallocating investments to support the business areas that will lead our success and profitability. Our mobile phone business continues to both stabilize and evolve as we navigate the highly competitive markets we operate in. By concentrating on areas where we have a competitive advantage based on our strong R&D and design history, track record of developing reliable tailored solutions that leverage the latest technologies, and our supply chain relationships, we are winning attractive customer orders in the enterprise segment of the mobile phone business."

Mr. Deyou Dong continued, "The Agreement announced today is a milestone achievement for the Company and our shareholders. This Agreement will deliver immediate and highly attractive cash inflow from our investment, while eliminating the routine risks associated with ongoing development and market cycles. The proceeds will be received as a series of installments, which will strengthen our balance sheet and provide the capital to support targeted growth initiatives for our existing business lines and the exploration of other opportunities. While we expect the macro environment to remain challenging in 2017, we are optimistic and well positioned for profitability at current revenue levels based on actions we took to lower operating costs and make our core business healthier."
