Under the Contract, Sunpower will supply heat exchangers and reactors to BorsodChem's MDI plant in Hungary. With delivery to be completed in 2020, this is expected to have a positive impact on the Group's FY2020 financial performance.

The Group's M&S business has regained stable production since 1Q 2020 following strict adherence to pandemic prevention and control guidelines. With its technological innovations and sophisticated management, Sunpower has been able to further enhance its production efficiency to ensure the smooth delivery of orders. Despite the pandemic, the Group's M&S order book has surged to a record high of RMB2.8 billion as at April 2020 due to its market leadership, financial strength and proven ability to execute and deliver.

Mr. Guo Hongxin, Executive Chairman of Sunpower, commented, "We are pleased to be able to provide support to Wanhua Chemical's international business through our quality products and services. This underscores Wanhua's recognition of our manufacturing expertise and technical strength as well as the strong and long-standing bonds that we have built with them. Moving forward, we expect to expand cooperation with Wanhua Chemical across more sectors and markets.

To-date, we have delivered superior-quality products and services to approximately 1,500 customers within a wide range of industries in over 30 countries, which now include Hungary as we continue to expand our international footprint through partnerships in more areas. "

He continued, "In our GI segment, all of our GI plants have resumed production after the pandemic came under control in China in end-February and early March. Being our primary value creator and growth driver, GI is expected to deliver high-quality recurring income and cash flows over the long term. With 8 operational GI projects, 1 under trial production, 3 under construction and a robust pipeline of earnings-accretive projects under evaluation, we are on track to build a sizeable GI portfolio in the years ahead with the target to invest RMB2.5 billion in GI project equity by 2021."
