The security deposit is the rental guarantee provided by the Company to a bank for the mortgage of long-term rental customers, which will be gradually released from the bank according to the repayment progress of the customers.

Real estate properties under development increased by $119.0 million in the six months of 2020 from $251.7 million as of December 31, 2019 to $370.7 million as of June 30, 2020.

The increase was mainly due to the recognition of right of use assets of $5.7 million for Nam Tai - U-Creative Space (Lujiazui). In addition, the recognition of right of use assets for Nam Tai - Tang Xi Technology Park and Hong Kong office decreased by a total of $0.3 million, in accordance with Accounting Standards Codification ("ASC") 842 Leases which became effective on January 1, 2019.

The increase was mainly due to the withdrawal of $6.4 million from Bank of China and $15.5 million from Xiamen International Bank for Nam Tai Inno Park, and $16.4 million from Shenzhen Rural Commercial Bank for Nam Tai Technology Center, which was offset by the repayment of $7.7 million to Bank of China, $0.24 million to Beijing of Bank, $0.04 million to China Everbright Bank, and $0.14 million to Industrial Bank (China), and the foreign exchange translation of $1.2 million due to the depreciation of RMB against US dollars in the six months of 2020.

BUSINESS OVERVIEW

Impact of COVID-19

In the first half of 2020, the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the commercial activities throughout China as well as other parts of the world. Local authorities in Chinese cities adopted varying measures to slow down the resumption of work in enterprises for public health concerns. The leasing and construction activities of our projects in Shenzhen and Shanghai have also been affected to a certain extent in the first half of 2020.

Fortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic seemed to have come under control in most parts of China over the past few months. The pandemic has created no significant impact on our liquidity and financial condition in the second quarter of 2020. As of June 30, 2020, there were 421 existing confirmed cases of COVID-19 in China according to China's National Health Commission, a significant drop from 2,004 existing confirmed cases as of March 31, 2020. In the second quarter, the construction works of our projects under development have fully resumed. We will continue to take stringent safety measures and monitor the development of the COVID-19 pandemic to safeguard the health of our staff and tenants.

Progress of Leasing and Business Invitation

As of June 30, 2020, we had leasable area of approximately 365,000 square meters, of which around 85% was located in Shenzhen and around 15% was located in Wuxi and Shanghai. As of June 30 2020, the occupancy rate of our Shenzhen projects, including pre-leasing areas, was approximately 32%, and the occupancy rate of Wuxi and Shanghai projects was approximately 96%.

In June 2020, we hosted signing ceremonies with two technology companies in Nam Tai Inno Park ! Wayz Robotics (Shenzhen) Co., Ltd. and Shenzhen Ksodr Healthy Products Tech. Co., Ltd. Both companies are expected to move into Nam Tai Inno Park in the second half of 2020. To enhance convenience and service offerings, we entered into leasing contracts with multiple service providers for Nam Tai Inno Park, from food & beverage operators to retailers and a fitness center. We believe Nam Tai Inno Park is gaining popularity among the technology enterprises in Shenzhen as our operational capabilities are being recognized.

In addition, we introduced rent financing to our tenants. We began to explore financial support to promote the construction-stage pre-leasing of units in Nam Tai Inno Park in 2019. In June 2020, Zastron Electronic (Shenzhen) Co., Ltd. ("Zastron Shenzhen") and Nam Tai Investment (Shenzhen) Co., Ltd. ("Nam Tai Investment"), subsidiaries of the Company, and a domestic bank entered into a leasing cooperation agreement, pursuant to which, the bank agreed to provide personal loans to tenants of Nam Tai Inno Park with a loan term up to 10 years. Tenants opt for the rent financing are required to pay no less than 50% of the lease contract value to the Company prior to the application of the loan. Zastron Shenzhen and Nam Tai Investment will provide guarantees for these loans and make a deposit equal to the full amount of the loans to the bank. The loan to the tenants will be entrusted to release to Zastron Shenzhen. As the tenants repay the loans, the required deposit at the bank will be reduced proportionally until the loans are repaid in full. In the event of early termination of a tenant's lease or tenant's default on the repayment of monthly installments, the Company will have the right to terminate the lease and reclaim the unit from the tenant. We believe the rent financing arrangement will not only ease the financing pressure of potential tenants but also help to strengthen the competitiveness of Nam Tai Inno Park and the cash flows of the Company.

Project Construction and Operation Progress

  • For Nam Tai Inno Park, we obtained property ownership certificates for 11 buildings within the park in May 2020. As of June 30, 2020, we completed the renovation work for the operation service center of Nam Tai Inno Park, which will help us provide professional services to enterprise tenants. We are currently carrying out renovation works for the common area of the industrial office. It is estimated that the leased units will be delivered to our tenants gradually from the third quarter of 2020 to 2021.
  • For Nam Tai Technology Center, the construction work of the project fully resumed. As of June 30, 2020, we were completing the baseplate construction and will continue to monitor pile foundation and conduct other foundation works. We may consider applying for the pre-sale permit in the fourth quarter of 2020 or during the first half of 2021 when we meet the pre-sale conditions.
  • For Nam Tai Inno Valley, we submitted the application of urban renewal for Nam Tai Inno Valley to the City Renewal and Land Development Bureau of Shenzhen Bao'an District. We applied for mixed land indicators, including traditional industrial land (M-1) as primary land use and innovative industrial land (M-0) as supplementary land use. We will provide further updates on the progress of the urban renewal application in due course.
  • With the gradual alleviation of the COVID-19 pandemic in China, we had a number of industrial events in the second quarter to further strengthen our image as a technology park operator. We organized several conferences including Demystifying 5G: Harbin Institute of Technology & Investors Joint Conference, AI Opens a New Era of Smart Manufacturing C Smart Manufacturing & Robotic Industry Sharing Salon, Explore AI Unicorn - UBTECH and Smart Healthcare Empowers Health Industry Conference, etc.

Nam Tai - Longxi

In June 2020, we obtained the land use right certificate and land use planning permit for Nam Tai - Longxi. The construction teams for pile foundation and earthwork have entered the site and begun preparation works such as pile testing and earthwork excavation planning. The estimated development cost of Nam Tai - Longxi project is approximately $163 million.

The main target customers of Nam Tai - Longxi are the locals with rigid demand and demand to improve living conditions in Machong Town, Dongguan, as well as external customers from other parts of Dongguan and the nearby Guangzhou city. The straight-line distances from the project to Huangpu District and Panyu District of Guangzhou are only 4 and 7 kilometers, respectively. In addition, it takes only about 40 minutes to travel from the Dongguan West Railway Station to the Guangzhou East Railway Station and the Shenzhen Airport. The transportation advantage would be a great attraction of the project.

Budget for Developing the Projects

The estimated development costs of Nam Tai Inno Park and Nam Tai Technology Center are $195 million and $244 million, respectively. The estimated development costs include the land costs, construction and installation costs, and development overheads, with the exclusion of the renovation costs of the dormitories. The budget contains herein has not been adjusted to take into account inflation and financing costs. For Nam Tai Inno Valley, the developmental budget estimate is not yet available as the project is in the process of applying for the redevelopment approval from the authorities.

Macro Trend Update

The office market in Shenzhen has been under pressure in the past few years. According to CRIC Research, the transaction area in 2019 declined by approximately 30% year-on-year to 704,000 square meters, and the transaction area in the first half of 2020 shrunk to approximately 290,000 square meters. The supply volume of the office market has exceeded the transaction volume in Shenzhen over the past five years. The supply-demand ratio in 2019 was around 2.2:1, an increase of 22% year-on-year.

In contrast, the performance of commercial housing market in Shenzhen has been positive in recent years. According to CRIC Research, the transaction area of the commercial housing in Shenzhen in 2019 was approximately 4.54 million square meters, an increase of 32% year-on-year. In the first half of 2020, Shenzhen commercial housing market experienced a supply shortage with a supply-demand ratio of around 1:2.

The commercial housing market in Machong Town, Dongguan has also performed well in recent years. According to CRIC Research, the average transaction price of the commercial housing in Machong Town in the first half of 2020 reached approximately RMB18,018 per square meter, an increase of 6% year-on-year. The transaction volume of the commercial housing market in Machong Town has exceeded the supply volume in the past three years, indicating a supply shortage. In the first half of 2020, the supply-demand ratio reached 1:1.6, an increase of 51% year-on-year.

Policy Update

In June 2020, Guangdong Provincial Development and Reform Commission, Department of Science and Technology of Guangdong Province and other local departments have jointly issued the "Overall Development Plan of the Guangdong Development Zone (2020-2035)"(the "Plan"). The Plan defines the scopes of the Shenzhen metropolitan area and the Guangzhou metropolitan area, of which the Shenzhen metropolitan area includes Shenzhen, Dongguan, Huizhou and Shanwei. The Plan calls for the promotion of in-depth integration of the Shenzhen metropolitan area and other metropolitan areas, as well as the development of advanced manufacturing, emerging industries of strategic importance and complementary industries in development zones of the Pearl River Delta region, and the upgrading of traditionally competitive industries. The goal is, by 2022, the GDP of the province's development zones will exceed RMB 3 trillion; and by 2025 and 2035, the GDP of the province's development zones will exceed RMB 4 and 8 trillion, respectively.

According to the website of Shenzhen Metro, the Metro Line 6 ("Line 6") is expected to officially open for operation in August 2020. Line 6, also known as "Guangming Line", mainly passes through Bao'an and Guangming Districts of Shenzhen, and connects to Futian, Nanshan and other central areas in Shenzhen through Line 4 and other metro lines under construction. Nam Tai Inno Park is close to both Changzhen station and Fenghuangcheng station of Line 6 in Guangming District. With Line 6 coming into operation, the competitiveness and the economic development of Guangming District would be further enhanced. Nam Tai Inno Park would also benefit from the development.

RISKS RELATED TO OUR BUSINESS

Negative impacts have been brought to the Company due to recent press releases made by some investors. Their press releases and actions have disrupted our operations and the confidence of our business partners towards the Company. Our lending financial institutions may demand early repayments of our loans in the event of significant concerns over the stability of the Company. Our customers and business partners may be worried to withdraw from their respective leasing and engagements with the Company, while local authorities may further scrutinize on our development applications. Severe consequences to our financing and operations could be resulted from the actions of those investors, casting uncertainties over our asset value and financial performance.

In an open letter issued on May 27, 2020, an investor claimed that "two years ago, before any pre-sales or revenue, the Company's two commercial projects had three independent valuations ranging from $2 to $3 billion". We believe this statement is not a reasonable conclusion of the three independent valuation reports on our land uploaded to our corporate website in June 2017, the range of valuations has never been provided in the reports. Those investors have also not enquired with us regarding the valuations prior to publishing the open letter. We are concerned that various statements regarding our business made by those investors may be misinterpreting. Investors should exercise caution on evaluating unproven statements and seek professional advice when necessary.

In addition, based on the PRC Interim Regulation on Land Appreciation Tax of 1994, as amended in 2011, and the corresponding implementation rules of 1995, as amended in 2011, Land Appreciation Tax ("LAT") applies on both corporate entities and individuals in the paid transfer of land use rights, real estate properties and affiliated facilities. The "deductible items" will be taken into account in the computation of the value of land appreciation. The Company may be subject to substantial LAT if Nam Tai Technology Center or our other saleable properties are disposed by sale. For further details, please refer to "Item 4-Information on the Company -B Business Overview -Major Taxes Applicable to Property Developers- Land Appreciation Tax" on our 2019 annual report contained in the Form 20-F.

Notes:

(a)     The types of our projects are based on our planning or certificates issued by the relevant authority subject to adjustment upon the final approval of the relevant authority.

(b)     The gross floor area is based on the assumption that we will receive M-0 zoning approval for the entire Inno Valley site prior to its redevelopment. If we do not receive the M-0 zoning approval, we will be required to develop Inno Valley under the M-1 zoning requirements. In that case, appropriate adjustments to our plan will have to be made. The existing gross floor area of Inno Valley is 41,927 square meters. According to "Shenzhen Industrial Block Range Line Management Measures", the location of Nam Tai Inno Valley is within the designated industrial block range, of which the government strictly controls the proportion of M-0 zoning on industrial land. Therefore, the proportion of M-0 zoning, floor area ratio and construction area of Inno Valley are subject to the final approval of the government which is uncertain at this time. We cannot guarantee that we will be able to develop Inno Valley according to the floor area currently disclosed.

(c)     The figures are subject to adjustment upon the final approval of the relevant authority.

ABOUT NAM TAI PROPERTY INC.

We are a real estate developer and operator, mainly conducting business in Mainland China. Our main land resources are located in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area ("Greater Bay Area") and Wuxi, China, of which the three plots of land in Shenzhen will be developed into the technology parks of Nam Tai Inno Park, Nam Tai Technology Center and Nam Tai Inno Valley. We plan to build these technology parks into landmark projects in the region, and provide high-quality industrial offices, industrial service spaces and supporting dormitories to the park tenants. Based on the experience of developing and operating technology parks, and the industrial relationship network accumulated over the past 40 years, we have also exported the operation mode of technology parks to other industrial properties using the asset-light model to rent industrial properties for repositioning and business invitation. We will also expand the commercial and residential property business in China as an auxiliary development strategy of the Company. As the growth prospects of China maintain, we will actively seize development opportunities in the Greater Bay Area and other first- and second-tier cities in China, and continue to strengthen and expand the business of industrial real estate, and commercial and residential properties.

Nam Tai Property Inc. is a corporation registered in the British Virgin Islands and listed on the New York Stock Exchange (Symbol: "NTP"). Please refer to the Nam Tai website () or the SEC website () for our press releases and financial results.

Notes:

(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 would qualify under such definition. Therefore, the fixed deposits maturing over three months as of June 30, 2020, are not classified as cash and cash equivalents but separately disclosed as short-term bank deposits in the balance sheet.

(2)         Capitalization on project investment was $107.8 million for the second quarter of 2020 and accumulated project investment was $370.7 million as of June 30, 2020.

(3)         Accumulated other comprehensive loss represented conversion differences in foreign currency statements.
