(NEX: GWIN)

 

Interim Results for the Six Months Ended 30 June 2017

 

Gowin New Energy Group Limited, the China-based group engaged in the research and development, outsourcing and sales of LED lighting products, today announces its unaudited financial results for the six months ended 30 June 2017.

 

Chairman's Statement

 

Business Overview

 

The principal activity of Gowin New Energy Group Limited ("the Group'') has historically been research and development, and sales of LED lighting products. The group has continued its corporate restructuring including investing in business in related fields. In the first half of the year 2017, in the light of stagnation in the LED business, the Group including its subsidiaries continued its restructuring efforts. Since the Variable Interest Equity ("VIE") contracts were terminated with Yichia Optoelectronics Technology Co., Ltd ("Yichia Opto") in 2015, the subsidiary Gowin New Energy Holdings Limited ("Holdings") serves no purpose. Consequently, the winding-up process of Holdings, as approved by the Board in 2016, will begin on 1, October 2017. The business continues to operate its LED R&D and sales of LED products in Taiwan.

 

The Group's Annual General Meeting was held in Taiwan on 7 February 2017. The meeting approved the Group using its share premium account to pay up the balance of 325 million partly paid shares. Additionally, subject to the Grand Court of the Cayman Islands approval and registration processes, the Group approved the Capital Reduction of the Company, whereby 67.5624 shares in every 100 shares would be cancelled.

 

With the continuing poor performance of the LED business, the Board has continued reviewing its investment opportunity options, for the benefit of the long term. As previously announced, one of the opportunities that is being evaluated is a relationship with TAIWAN THICK-FILM INDUSTRIES CORP. ("TTFI"). TTFI's principal activity is production and sales of LED and Back Light Module products, a similar business to the Group. TTFI is listed on the Taipei Stock Exchange and is profitable. The board will update investors on the developments of the TTFI deal in due course.

 

Financial Position

 

The Group will concentrate on achieving returns through its LED business subsidiaries and from associated investment returns. The Group intends to attract capital and make cash investments in other businesses. During this period of corporate restricting the CEO, Mr. Chen, has supported the finance of the Group by way of loans and guarantees. CEO Mr. Chen Chih-Lung has signed a pledge letter promising to support the Group's working capital needs as necessary, such that the Group does not anticipate any working capital or going concern issues in the foreseeable future.         

 

Business Outlook and Conclusion

 

The Board will continue to examine opportunities to grow in the LED industry in 2017 and in other new business areas. The Directors look forward to the rest of this year with confidence.

 

Events After Reporting Date

 

On 24 August 2017, following approval from the Cayman Island Court and filing of the Court Order, the Capital Reduction came into effect. With the cancellation of 67.5624 shares in every 100 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 for this new business source of Group earnings, the Group announced the appointment of a new executive director Mr. Hsu I-Hsan on 22 August 2017.

 

On 18 September 2017, following the year end results, 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 authorize the directors to allot new Preference Shares in the Company for the intention of establishing a new Tea Business.

 

Future Prospects

 

The Board has identified the tea industry as a potentially attractive opportunity for diversification and intends to establish and obtain a stake of 15% in a new company incorporated in the Cayman Island to operate a new tea business. Gowin has entered into a co-operation agreement for the operation of the new company with the Chinese Pu-erh Tea Exchange Association, a non-profit organization located in New Taipei City, Taiwan and Grange Culture Creative Limited, a Taiwanese incorporated unlisted company with extensive experience and expertise in the Chinese tea industry and relevant connections with various tea related corporations. The Board anticipates that this agreement with reputable and recognized organizations in the Chinese tea industry will be an important element of the newly established company's Tea Business. The Board looks forward to its business developing in the next financial year.

 

Appreciation

 

The Board highly appreciates all the support from our shareholders. The last six months was another period of incremental progress as the Group worked hard on its organization restructuring and new business establishment. The Board looks forward to the next productive phase of the Group. As always, on the behalf of the Board, I wish to sincerely thank our hard-working employees for their efforts and results.
