FINANCIAL RESULTS

Net Operation Income

Net operation income for the first quarter of 2019 was $0.3 million compared to nil in the first quarter of 2018. Operation income for the first quarter of 2019 mainly consisted of rental income of $0.5 million from the existing factory buildings located on the site of Phase II of Nam Tai Inno City and Wuxi.

Operating Loss

Operating loss for the first quarter of 2019 was $3.3 million compared to an operating loss of $9.1 million in the first quarter of 2018. Operating loss for the first quarter of 2019 mainly consisted of general and administrative expenses of 2.9 million and selling and marketing expenses of $0.7 million; offset in part by our net operation income of $0.3 million for the period. Operating loss for the first quarter of 2018 mainly consisted of general and administrative expenses of $9.1 million that mainly included accrual of compensation for loss of office of $3.7 million for the retirement of a senior officer, stock option compensation expenses of $1.4 million for certain officers and employees, salary and benefits of $1.8 million, depreciation of $1.0 million and audit, legal and professional fees of $0.6 million.

Net (Loss) Income

Net loss for the first quarter of 2019 was $1.8 million compared to net income of $2.6 million in the first quarter of 2018. Net loss for the first quarter of 2019 mainly consisted of operating loss of $3.3 million, offset in part by interest income of $0.8 million earned from time deposits and exchange gain of $0.6 million as a result of the appreciation of Renminbi against the US dollar in the first quarter of 2019. Net income for the first quarter of 2018 mainly consisted of a gain of $6.8 million on disposal of an office property in Hong Kong, exchange gain of $3.3 million as a result of the appreciation of Renminbi against the US dollar in the first quarter of 2018 and interest income of $1.5 million earned from time deposits, offset in part by operating loss of $9.1 million.

This decrease was mainly due to $11.9 million spent for Nam Tai Inno Park and Nam Tai Inno City – Phase I in the first quarter of 2019.

Real Estate Properties under Development, Net

Real estate properties under development increased by $14.9 million in the first quarter of 2019 from $171.6 million as of December 31, 2018 to $186.5 million as of March 31, 2019.

Liquidity and Capital Resources

As of March 31, 2019, we had a total cash balance of $85.4 million and we have no material debt. According to our project development plan, project investment for the second quarter of 2019 is estimated to be $27.5 million.

RECENT DEVELOPMENTS

The development of Nam Tai Inno Park in Guangming, Shenzhen, and Nam Tai Inno City in Gushu, Shenzhen, continues to proceed smoothly.

For Nam Tai Inno Park, our construction continued smoothly in the first quarter of 2019. After the opening of our industrial showroom at the end of December 2018, we held a number of industrial conferences including an Internet-of-Things industry conference on December 22, 2018, a discussion forum to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Guangdong High-Tech Industry Chamber on March 15, 2019 and an academic & expert discussion forum on the development of Nam Tai Inno Park on March 20, 2019, as well as several technology park community building events. Our industrial showroom and the various forums and events it hosted were designed to attract potential tenants and promote our brand as an operator of technology parks. As a result of these conferences and events, we have established a number of contacts with potential tenants as well as the receipt of deposits for future leases for 156 dormitory units from potential tenants.

For Phase I of Nam Tai Inno City, we have obtained the early construction permit for the pile foundation in November 2018 and began pile driving and foundation laying in the first quarter of 2019. We aim to complete the foundation building process before the receipt of our construction permit for the main structure, which is expected to be obtained in the second half of 2019. We also plan to pay $49.8 million for additional land premium by mid 2019. Payment of the additional land premium is required by the land use right contract re-executed on October 25, 2018 between us and the urban planning, land and resources commission of Shenzhen municipality. Our payment of additional land premiums may be offset in part by the increased cost basis of our developed project when calculating land appreciation tax on sales of the subdivided units.

For Phase II of Nam Tai Inno City, as of March 31, 2019, we had leased out approximately 90% of the spaces in existing buildings to Medium-small or early stage companies. In line with our plan to maintain active operation of the facilities ahead of their redevelopment, we held several industrial events including an intellectual property law forum on March 17, 2019, where several policy makers and industry speakers discussed local policies and subsidies regarding the promotion of technology companies with valuable intellectual properties. We will continue to strengthen our brand as a technology park operator by providing our corporate tenants and Shenzhen's technology community with these value-added services.

As for our Wuxi facility, we rented and delivered the facilities to a third party for further renovation and development in February 2019.

Notes:

(1)     According to the definition of "Balance Sheet" under the Financial Accounting Standard Board ("FASB") Accounting Standards
Codification ("ASC") 210-10-20, cash equivalents are short-term, highly liquid investments that are readily convertible to cash. Only
investments with original maturities of three months or less when purchased qualify under that definition. Therefore, the fixed deposits
maturing over three months in amount of $
12.3 million and $39.4 million as at March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2018, respectively,
are not classified as cash and cash equivalents but are separately disclosed as short
-term investments in the balance sheet.

(2)      Capitalization on project investment was $11.6 million for the first quarter of 2019, our accumulated project investment was
$186.5 million up to March 31, 2019.

(3)      Accumulated other comprehensive loss represented foreign currency translation adjustment.
