FINANCIAL HIGHLIGHTS

- For 1H2019, the Group recorded revenue of approximately RMB3,043.7 million, up 38.6% from approximately RMB2,196.0 million for 1H2018.

- For 1H2019, the Group's profit margin before tax was approximately 21.0%, up 0.7 percentage points from the 20.3% for 1H2018, mainly due (1) actively controlled costs and increased product gross profit margin, especially the margins of integrated mining products, roadheaders and stacking machines; and (2) management expenses ratio (excluding R&D expenses) against revenue and lower selling expenses ratio against revenue due to digital transformation and improvement on internal operation efficiency.
- For 1H2019, the research and development expenses were approximately RMB209.2 million, up approximately 145.5% from approximately RMB85.2 million for 1H2018. For 1H2019, research and development expenses accounted for approximately 6.9% of revenue, up 3.0 percentage points from approximately 3.9% for 1H2018, mainly due to higher investments in R&D on new products, including Smart Mine, Intelligent Terminal, tunnel roadheader, integrated excavation, bolting and self-protection machine, unmanned electric truck, telehandler, automatic bridge and wide-bodied vehicles.
- For 1H2019, the Group's profit attributable to owners of the parent was approximately RMB551.7 million, up 54.1% from approximately RMB358.0 million for 1H2018. Basic earnings per share for 1H2019 were RMB0.18, up from RMB0.12 for 1H2018.
