Notes on Tax Withholding

(1)

As regards the dividends to be distributed to individual shareholders and securities investment funds of the Company’s A shares, according to the Notice on Differentiated Individual Income Tax Policies Applicable to the Stock Dividends Distributed by Listed Companies (Cai Shui [2015] No. 101) and the Notice on Issues Related to the Implementation of the Differentiated Individual Income Tax Policy on Dividends and Bonuses Distributed by Listed Companies (Cai Shui [2012] No.85), the Company will not withhold the income tax for the time being when distributing dividends, and the cash dividends to be distributed will be RMB0.16 per share.

When any individual shareholder or securities investment fund transfers its shares after the equity rights registration date, China Clearing Shanghai Branch will calculate the amount of tax payable based on the duration of holding of such shares, and a securities company or other stock depository agency shall deduct the amount of tax payable from the individual investor’s fund account and transfer to China Clearing Shanghai Branch, which will transfer the deducted amount of tax to the Company within the first five working days of the following month, and the Company will then file tax returns with and pay the tax to competent tax authority within the statutory filing period in the month it receives the tax payment. If the term of holding of such shares is less than one month (including one month), 100% of the dividend income of such investor shall be calculated as the taxable income and the income tax shall be levied on such taxable income at a rate of 20%; if the term of holding of such shares is between one month and one year (including one year), 50% of the dividend income of such investor shall be calculated as the taxable income for the time being and the income tax shall be levied on such taxable income at a rate of 10%; and if the term of holding of such shares is longer than one year, the dividend income of such investor shall be exempted from the individual income tax for the time being.

The cash dividends to be actually distributed after tax will be RMB0.144 per share. Where any such investor believes its dividend income is entitled to any treatment in the taxation agreement (arrangement), it may file an application to competent tax authority after receiving its dividends according to relevant regulations.

(3)

As regards the dividends to be distributed to Hong Kong investors (including corporate and individual investors) who invest in the Company’s A shares via the Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect Program, according to the Relevant Taxation Policies Concerning the Pilot Inter-connected Mechanism for Trading on the Shanghai Stock Market and the Hong Kong Stock Market (Cai Shui [2014] NO. 81), before the Hong Kong Securities Clearing Company Limited is able to provide the China Securities Depository and Clearing Co., Ltd. with the identity of investors, their shareholding period and other detailed data, the policies of differentiated taxation based on the length of shareholding shall temporarily not apply. Instead, the Company will withhold the income tax payable by such investors at the rate of 10%. The cash dividends to be actually distributed after tax will be RMB0.144 per share. Where such a Hong Kong investor is a tax resident of another country that has signed a tax treaty with China in which the stipulated income tax rate on stock dividends is less than 10%, such Hong Kong investor, whether a corporate or individual investor, may, on its own or by entrusting a withholding agent, apply to competent tax authority of the listed company for enjoying the preferential treatment under the tax treaty, in which case the competent tax authority shall, after review, refund the corporate or individual investor the difference between the tax already levied and the tax payable as calculated according to the rate under the tax treaty.
