       31 December 2015, the Company has entered into 
       the following transactions: 
 
       i. On 7 November 2016, the Group entered into 
       a sale and purchase agreement to acquire the

       GBP154 million (approximately HK$1,491.0 million) 
       (before transaction costs and expenses), in 
       cash, subject to adjustment. Completion of the 
       acquisition took place on 7 November 2016 when 
       the Group paid the sellers approximately GBP75 
       million (approximately HK$726 million) in cash 
       as consideration for the entire issued units 
       in the trust (subject to post-completion adjustments) 
       and also paid in cash, on behalf of the sellers, 
       approximately GBP79 million (approximately HK$765 
       million) to the bank's solicitors' account as 
       repayment of the total redemption amount due

       and a new five year term loan facility of approximately 
       GBP100 million (approximately HK$968.3 million)

       a sale and purchase agreement with an independent 
       third party in relation to the disposal of a 
       property development project (known as "Chengdu

       the People's Republic of China (the "PRC") for 
       a consideration of HK$890 million (approximately 
       GBP87.7 million) in cash. The disposal was completed

       million) before deducting transaction costs 
       and expenses. 
 
       iii. On 3 August 2016, the Group entered into

       third party in relation to the disposal of a 
       property development project located at Huangshan 
       City, Anhui Province, the PRC for a consideration 
       of HK$2 million (approximately GBP0.2 million)

       Henan Province, the PRC for a consideration 
       of HK$900 million (approximately GBP81.4 million) 
       in cash. Completion of the disposal took place 
       on 26 April 2016 and it generated a net cash

       before deducting transaction costs and expenses. 
 
       v. On 25 February 2016, the Group entered into

       its entire interest in companies which beneficially 
       owned the property of Dah Sing Financial Centre 
       for a consideration of approximately HK$10,000 
       million (approximately GBP926 million) in cash, 
       subject to adjustment. The disposal was completed

       HK8,019 million (approximately GBP766.9 million).
