OPERATING RESULTS

Net sales, gross profit and operating income for the fourth quarter of 2013 and the same quarter of 2012 were presented excluding the discontinued operations (primarily our Wuxi facility). Net sales in the fourth quarter of 2013 were $234.9 million, a decrease of 24.7%, compared to the net sales of $312.2 million for the same quarter of 2012. Gross profit in the fourth quarter of 2013 was $20.5 million, a decrease of 27.1%, compared to $28.1 million in the fourth quarter of last year. Gross profit margin for the fourth quarter of 2013 was 8.7%, a decrease of 0.3%, compared to 9.0% in the fourth quarter of last year. Operating income for the fourth quarter of 2013 was $5.0 million, a decrease of 76.1%, compared to $20.8 million in the fourth quarter of last year.

With respect to the discontinued operations (primarily our Wuxi facility), for the fourth quarter of 2013 and the same period of 2012, the net sales were nil and $156.4 million, gross (loss) profit were ($0.1) million and $20.8 million, and operating income were $0.3 million and $18.0 million, respectively.

After considering the income from discontinued operations (net of tax), net income in the fourth quarter of 2013 was $9.2 million, or $0.20 per diluted share, a decrease of 74.7%, compared to net income of $36.6 million, or $0.80 per diluted share, in the fourth quarter of last year. The decrease was primarily the result of the loss of orders for the Company's operations in Wuxi, represented by the income difference between the $0.6 million income from discontinued operations (net of tax) in the fourth quarter of 2013 compared with $16.9 million income in same period last year. Net income from continuing operations (in Shenzhen) decreased to $8.7 million in the fourth quarter of 2013 from $19.7 million in same period last year, mainly due to the accrual of layoff compensation of $12.5 million as a part of our core business transformation.

Net sales, gross profit and operating income for the twelve months ended December 31, 2013 and the same period of 2012 were presented excluding the discontinued operations (primarily our Wuxi facility). For the twelve months ended December 31, 2013, net sales were $855.8 million, an increase of 26.2%, compared to the net sales of $678.1 million for the same period of 2012. Gross profit in the twelve months ended December 31, 2013 was $67.6 million, a decrease of 0.9%, compared to $68.2 million in the same period of last year. Gross profit margin for the twelve months ended December 31, 2013 was 7.9%, a decrease of 2.2%, compared to 10.1% in the same period of last year. Operating income for the twelve months ended December 31, 2013 was $35.5 million, a decrease of 21.7%, compared to $45.3 million in the same period of last year.

For the twelve months ended December 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012, our discontinued operations recognized net sales of $47.1 million and $494.0 million, gross (loss) profit of ($0.5) million and $37.0 million, and operating (loss) income of ($37.9) million and $25.9 million, respectively. After considering the (loss) income from our discontinued operations (net of tax), net income for the twelve months ended December 31, 2013 was $0.3 million, or $0.01 per diluted share, compared to net income of $66.9 million, or $1.48 per diluted share, in the same period of last year. The decrease was primarily attributable to the absence and losses from discontinued operations, which included the impairment loss of fixed assets of $35.0 million and net deferred tax expenses of $3.7 million.

COMPANY OUTLOOK

The Company recorded revenue of $234.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2013, excluding discontinued operations. This revenue was mainly attributed to the production of high-resolution LCMs for smartphones at the Company's Shenzhen facility.

As announced previously, the Company has discontinued its production operations of LCMs for tablets in Wuxi at the end of June 2013 due to a lack of customer orders. As for the high-resolution LCMs for smartphones, the Company received orders from a customer to extend the production throughout the third and fourth quarters of 2013. The production of these orders had substantially completed by December 2013 and the shipment will be completed within January 2014. There are presently no more outstanding orders for smartphone LCMs. There are, however, still a few minor LCM orders for automobile applications requested by another customer, which would allow us to extend a small amount of production up to the end of April 2014. We currently have no more orders for any LCM production thereafter and estimate that the aforesaid final orders will only generate net sales of around $50 million in the first half of 2014.

Also announced previously, we have been forced to cease our core business of LCM production by the end of April 2014, due to a customer's repeated and continuous changes in its formal purchasing orders without suitable commitment and, as a result, a strong likelihood that no reasonable profit margin can be gained anymore from continuing production. We have decided our core business of LCM production will formally cease by the end of April 2014. After April 2014, we intend to sell all of our machinery and production lines in all our facilities. We expect the sales will be finalized around end of July 2014.

Upon the cessation of our core business of LCM production, our management will thoroughly focus our efforts on developing two parcels of property in Gushu, Shenzhen, and Guangming, Shenzhen, respectively, by converting these two parcels of land into high-end commercial complexes. Upon which, we will become the landlord and manager of the commercial complexes and, as a result of which, our core business will be transformed from the EMS industry to property development and management. We project that the development of these two properties will take approximately four years each to complete following our board's approval, which is scheduled in July 2014. During this development period, all overheads expenses, development costs and dividend will be funded from interest income and rental income, together with Company's cash on hand and bank facilities, which we believe is sufficient.

The information contained in or that can be accessed through the websites mentioned in this announcement does not form part of this announcement.

PAYMENT OF QUARTERLY DIVIDENDS FOR 2014

As announced on November 4, 2013, the Company has set the payment schedule of quarterly dividends for 2014. The dividend for Q1 2014 was paid on January 17, 2014. The following table updates the previously announced schedule for declaration and payment of quarterly dividends in 2014.

The Company's decision to continue dividend payments in 2014 does not necessarily mean that cash dividend payments will continue thereafter. Whether future dividends after 2014 will be declared will depend upon Company's future growth and earnings at each relevant period, of which there can be no assurance, and the Company's cash flow needs for business transformation. Accordingly, there can be no assurance that cash dividends on the Company's common shares will be declared beyond those declared for 2014, we also cannot assure you what the amounts of such dividends will be or whether such dividends, once declared for a specific period, will continue for any future period, or at all.

FORWARD-LOOKING STATEMENTS AND FACTORS THAT COULD CAUSE OUR SHARE PRICE TO DECLINE

Certain statements included in this press release, other than statements of historical fact, are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements generally can be identified by the use of forward-looking terminology such as "may", "will", "expect", "intend", "estimate", "anticipate", "plan", "seek" or "believe". These forward-looking statements, which are subject to risks, uncertainties, and assumptions, may include projections of our future financial performance based on our growth strategies and anticipated trends in our business. These statements are only predictions based on our current expectations about future events. There are important factors that could cause our actual results, level of activity, performance, or achievements to differ materially from the results, level of activities, performance, or achievements expressed or implied by the forward-looking statements, including, but not limited to, a deterioration of the markets for the Company's customers' products and the global economy as a whole, which could negatively impact the Company's revenue and the ability of the Company's customers to confirm prior orders or pay for the Company's products; the financial resources and credit rating of Company's customers under the current global recession; the effects that current credit and market conditions could have on the liquidity and financial condition of our customers and suppliers, including any impact on their ability to meet their contractual obligations; the sufficiency of the Company's cash position and other sources of liquidity to operate its business; the negative effects of increased competition pressure on the Company's revenues and margins; component quality or shortage, whether or not cause by customers change in specifications, delay in the Company's ability to obtain all requisite permits and approvals from relevant government authorities in relation to the redevelopment of two parcels of property in Gushu, Shenzhen, and Guangming, Shenzhen, respectively, and the successfully redevelopment of the two parcels; continued inflation and appreciation of the Renminbi against the US dollar; rising labor costs in China and changes in the labor supply and labor relations our ability to win business; the negative effect of the litigation faced by the Company. In particular, you should consider the risks outlined under the heading "Risk Factors" in our most recent Annual Report on Form 20-F and in our Current Report filed from time to time on Form 6-K. The Company's decision to continue dividend payments in 2014 does not necessarily mean that dividend payments will continue thereafter. Whether future dividends will be declared depend upon the Company's future growth and earnings, of which there can be no assurance, as well as the Company's cash flow needs for further expansion. Accordingly, there can be no assurance that cash dividends on the Company's common shares will be declared beyond those declared for 2014, what amount that dividends may be or whether such dividends, once declared for a specific period, will continue for any future period, or at all, Although we believe the expectations reflected in the forward-looking statements are reasonable, we cannot guarantee future results, level of activity, performance, or achievements. You should not rely upon forward-looking statements as predictions of future events. These forward-looking statements apply only as of the date of this press release and the subsequent investors conference call; as such, they should not be unduly relied upon as circumstances change. Except as required by law, we are not obligated, and we undertake no obligation, to release publicly any revisions to these forward-looking statements that might reflect events or circumstance occurring after the date of this release or those that might reflect the occurrence of unanticipated events.

(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 with amount of $201.6 million and $49.8 million as at December 31, 2013 and December 31, 2012 are not classified as cash on hand but require separate disclosure in the balance sheet.
