Morgan Securities plc has borrowed 25,722,000 Shares from Shining Globe International Limited to cover over-allocations in the International Offering. The Over-allotment Shares will be used to facilitate the return in full to Shining Globe International Limited of the 25,722,000 borrowed Shares.

We will receive additional net proceeds of approximately HK$3,155.2 million for the issue of the Over-allotment Shares, after deducting commissions and other offering expenses payable by us in relation to the exercise of the Over-allotment Option (excluding certain offering related expenses to be reimbursed by the underwriters). We intend to apply the additional net proceeds towards the same purposes as set out in the section headed Use of Proceedsin the Prospectus.
