("Gowin" or the "Company")

 

Audited Annual Results for the year ended 31 December 2017

 

Gowin New Energy Group Limited is delighted to report its audited annual results for the twelve months ended 31 December 2017.

 

Chairman's statement

Business Overview

 

Gowin New Energy Group Limited (the "Group" or the "Company") is continuing to pursue research and development, outsourcing production and sales of LED lighting products in China and abroad, with focus on general lighting and backlighting. During 2017, the Group including its subsidiaries completed its restructuring efforts including the wind-up of Hong Kong subsidiary Gowin New Energy Holdings Limited as of 1 October 2017, as approved by the Board in 2016.

 

The business operates its LED R&D and sales of LED products in Taiwan. The Board's focus on LED and back Light Module products is achieved through its investment in TAIWAN THICK-FILM INDUSTRIES CORP. ("TTFI"), listed on the Taipei Stock Exchange. TTFI experienced strong operating results in 2017, with commensurate earnings per share performance. Looking ahead to 2018, future prospects seem positive and TTFI management is actively considering expansion in order to enhance profitability.

 

The Group conducted two General Meetings in 2017.

 

An Annual General Meeting was held in Taiwan on 7 February 2017, which included obtaining unanimous shareholders' approval for the Capital Reduction of the Company, whereby 67.5624 shares in every 100 shares would be cancelled, subsequently approved by Grand Court of the Cayman Islands on 15 August 2017 and filed and effective on 24 August 2017. With the cancellation of the relevant shares, the Group aims to create distributable reserves to facilitate payment of dividends in the future, hence making the Group's ordinary shares more attractive to new investors.

 

On 30 August 2017, the Group released a Circular to shareholders, regarding a proposed investment in a new Tea Business, an issue of preference shares, adoption of amended and restated Memorandum of Association and Articles of Association and a Notice of an Extraordinary General Meeting to be conducted on 18 September 2017. In anticipation of this new business source of Group earnings, the Group announced the appointment of a new non-executive director Mr Hsu I-Hsan on 22 August 2017. On 18 September 2017, an Extraordinary General Meeting was conducted in Taiwan, whereby unanimous approval was received to reclassify £20,000,000 authorised share capital into Ordinary Shares and Preference Shares and to authorise the directors to allot new Preference Shares in the Company for the intention of establishing the new Tea Business.   

 

Between September 2017 and 31 December 2017, the Group pursued its Tea Business aspirations, though the preference shares are not planned to be allotted till 2018. Investor interest in the Tea Business has been encouraging from whom interest has been expressed regarding possible ordinary shares investments in order to receive potential dividend streams. Accordingly, the Group expects to be able to raise funds to accelerate the growth of the Tea Business.

 

Financial Position and Business Outlook

 

The Board has looked closely at what opportunities it has to grow the business at some pace utilising the skills and assets it has at its disposal. Whilst the TTFI investment has been a good one and could be expected to yield sustainable dividends, the Tea Business provides a unique opportunity to accelerate growth and diversify the business. The Pu'erh tea segment is expected to generate strong double digit profit margins. Cash flows that arise are expected to improve the Group's financial position and liquidity sustainably. The CEO, Mr. Chih-lung Chen is also committed to selling a portion of his tea inventory to the Group that will fast track Tea Business profit generation; preliminary planning for this transaction is underway.

 

The Group will concentrate on achieving returns through its LED business investments and from associated investment returns as well as by ramping up its new Tea business. The Group will continue to explore attracting capital and making cash investments in other businesses. CEO Mr. Chen Chih-Lung has signed a pledge letter promising to support the Group's working capital needs as necessary. Accordingly, the Group does not anticipate working capital or going concern challenges in the foreseeable future. The Directors look forward to Year 2018 with optimism.

Events after Reporting Date

On 3 April 2018, RMB3,855,000 convertible loan due to Mr Chen Chih-Lung has been converted into 40,000,000 ordinary shares.

Further loans of £40,000 and £30,000 have been received from Mr Chen Chih-Lung on 30 January 2018 and 29 March 2018 respectively.

Appreciation

The Board appreciates all the support from our shareholders and broader stakeholders. The Directors believe 2017 was another period of incremental progress as the Group worked hard on its organization restructuring and new business development. It has required significant effort by all concerned, particularly our employees to whom much gratitude is due.
