    Revenue

    Revenue for the first quarter of 2021 was $69.0 million compared to $0.7 million in the first quarter of 2020. Revenue for the first quarter of 2021 mainly consisted of the sales type lease income of $66.5 million and operating lease income of $1.1 million from Nam Tai Inno Park recognized following the delivery of the dormitory units, operating lease income of $0.9 million from existing buildings located on the sites of Inno Valley, Wuxi, Shanghai, and the leased space at Nam Tai - Tang Xi Technology Park.

Gross profit for the first quarter of 2021 mainly consisted of revenue of $69.0 million, offset by cost of $24.1 million for the period.

    Net Income (Loss) from Operations

    Net income from operations for the first quarter of 2021 was $36.2 million compared to net loss from operations of $3.7 million in the first quarter of 2020. Net income from operations for the first quarter of 2021 mainly consisted of gross profit of $45.0 million, offset in part by our general and administrative expenses of $7.6 million and selling and marketing expenses of $1.1 million for the period. Net loss from operations for the first quarter of 2020 mainly consisted of general and administrative expenses of $3.0 million and selling and marketing expenses of $0.8 million, offset in part by our gross profit of $0.1 million for the period. The increase in general and administrative expenses of $4.6 million in the first quarter of 2021 was mainly due to the increase in legal, agent and professional fees.

The decrease was primarily attributable to net cash provided by investing activities of $57.7 million, offset by net cash used in operating activities of $23.1 million and financing activities of $1.3 million, an exchange rate effect of $3.9 million and the increase in restricted cash of $69.8 million in the first quarter of 2021. The net cash provided by investing activities was primarily attributable to proceeds from the redemption of short term investments of $57.7 million in the first quarter of 2021.

    Restricted Cash

    Restricted cash increased by $69.8 million in the first quarter of 2021 from $2.1 million as of December 31, 2020 to $71.9 million as of March 31, 2021, as our lending banks have restricted the remittance from the bank accounts of the subsidiaries of the Company in their banks in China and an injunctive order was imposed on the Company by the High Court of Justice of the British Virgin Islands of the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court in March 2021, which has restricted us from dealing with the proceeds raised from the Private Placement.

    Real Estate Properties under Development, Net

    Real estate properties under development, net increased by $15.2 million in the first quarter of 2021 from $312.2 million as of December 31, 2020 to $327.4 million as of March 31, 2021, primarily attributable to the increase of $10.6 million for the construction of Nam Tai Technology Center, $2.9 million for the construction of Nam Tai - Longxi and $1.7 million for the construction of Nam Tai Inno Park.

    Real estate properties held for sales type lease

    Real estate properties held for sales type lease are stated at the lower of carrying amounts or fair value less selling costs. Real estate properties held for sales type lease decreased by $22.3 million from $31.6 million as of December 31, 2020 to $9.3 million as of March 31, 2021. The decrease was mainly due to delivery of part of Towers 8, 9 and 10 during the first quarter of 2021.

    Real estate properties held for lease, net

    Real estate properties held for lease, net are recorded at cost less accumulated depreciation. Real estate properties held for lease, net decreased by $1.3 million from $92.2 million as of December 31, 2020 to $90.9 million as of March 31, 2021, which was mainly due to depreciation during the first quarter of 2021.

    Accounts Payable

    Accounts payable decreased by $4.5 million in the first quarter of 2021 from $61.6 million as of December 31, 2020 to $57.1 million as of March 31, 2021. The decrease was mainly due to the increase of project payable of $5.4 million and $0.8 million for Nam Tai Technology Center and Nam Tai - Longxi, and decrease of project payable of $9.9 million for Nam Tai Inno Park, and $1.0 million for Shenzhen Kaicheng Architecture and Decoration Co., Ltd., which is a subsidiary of the Company.

The decrease was mainly attributed to the recognition of revenue of $66.5 million from the prepaid rent for the units delivered to customers of Nam Tai Inno Park during the period.

    Current Portion of Long Term Bank Loans

    The current portion of long term bank loans decreased by $2.2 million in the first quarter of 2021 from $122.9 million as of December 31, 2020 to $120.7 million as of March 31, 2021, due to $1.3 million of loan repayments and $0.9 million of exchange gain in the period. In March 2021, the Company received demand letters from Bank of China, Bank of Beijing, Industrial Bank, and Xiamen International Bank (the "Lending Banks"), regarding payment in full of amounts due under the respective loan agreements with the banks. Following the demand letters, the Lending Banks have restricted the remittance from the accounts of the subsidiaries of the Company in their banks in China. The Company is negotiating with the Lending Banks. All bank borrowings were re-classified as current liabilities as of December 31, 2020.

    Liquidity and Capital Resources

    As of March 31, 2021, the Company had a total cash and cash equivalents of $20.6 million. As of December 31, 2020, the Company had a total cash and cash equivalents of $61.0 million.

    In 2021, our planned capital expenditures are estimated to be $138.0 million for the three major real estate development projects, of which $35.4 million has been allocated for Nam Tai Inno Park, $72.4 million has been allocated for Nam Tai Technology Center and $30.2 million has been allocated for Nam Tai - Longxi.

    Going Concern

    The unaudited consolidated financial information of the Company for the first quarter of 2021 has been prepared assuming that the Company will continue as a going concern which contemplates the realization of assets and the satisfaction of liabilities in the normal course of business. As of March 31, 2021, the Company had net current liabilities of $33 million which, among other conditions and uncertainties, raised substantial doubt about its ability to continue as a going concern. 

    In addition to the continuing negotiations with the Lending Banks and certain other creditors, the Company is evaluating several methods of financing, such as additional external financings, acceleration of the leasing of Nam Tai Inno Park, and presale of Nam Tai Technology Center and Nam Tai - Longxi, failing which rights offering and project disposal will also be considered. Currently, the Company intends to raise loans from financial institutions and potential funders to maintain our normal operations.

    However, there are significant uncertainties pertaining to the governing and management of the Company as a result of the postponing of a special meeting of shareholders. For more information, see "Recent Development – Appeal on the Judgement of the BVI Court". The appropriate course of actions may have to be decided by the Board and management subsequent to the meeting, while the current Board and management are committed to taking actions to preserve the best interests of all shareholders and explore options that will be able to be considered.

    Please see the Company's Condensed Consolidated Statements of Comprehensive Income for further details. The information contained herein has also been published on the Company's website at https://www.namtai.com/quarterly/index.html.

    In January 2021, the inauguration ceremony of Nam Tai Entrepreneurs Club was successfully held at Nam Tai Inno Park Industry Service Center. More than 60 entrepreneurs who settled in Inno Park and officials from Shenzhen Guangming District Science and Technology Innovation Bureau attended the event. We established Nam Tai Entrepreneurs Club with the aim to foster engagement with entrepreneurs and create a resource sharing platform among the community of entrepreneurs.

    Project Construction and Development Progress

    • For Nam Tai Inno Park, as of March 31, 2021, approximately 1,100 dormitory units have been delivered to our tenants. We are working on interior decoration of the industrial office of Towers 3 and 5. In the first quarter of 2021, we attracted 27 corporate tenants, mostly from the health, technology and related industries. The vast majority of our dormitory units in Inno Park have been delivered to tenants and our focus will shift to the leasing of industrial office and commercial spaces which we face fierce competition in the local market.
    • For Nam Tai Technology Center, we have completed the construction of main structure of Tower C as of March 31, 2021. Currently we are undergoing the construction of main structures of Towers A, B and D. At present, we have not met the conditions for applying pre-sale permit for the project. One of the conditions for applying for the pre-sale permit is to enter into an industrial supervision agreement with the local authorities, under which we will be imposed certain performance indicators such as total investment amount on the Nam Tai Technology Center, and aggregated output value and tax contribution attained by the enterprises registered in Nam Tai Technology Center. There have been differences between the performance indicators that might be imposed by the local authorities and those proposed by us. We are in the process of negotiating the performance indicators with the local authorities, and there is no assurance that the local authorities will agree to the performance indicators proposed by us. If we cannot reach an agreement with the local authorities, we may not be able to obtain the pre-sale permit and commence pre-sale on time, or at all. Even if we are to enter into the industrial supervision agreement, failure to comply with the performance indicators set out in the agreement may result in substantial penalties and fines imposed by the local authorities. Any material adverse outcome from the negotiation with the local authorities may materially and adversely affect our business, financial condition, results of operations or cash flows. In addition, due to stressed liquidity condition of the Company, the construction progress of the project has been adversely affected. We are in negotiation with the relevant contractors.
    • For Nam Tai Inno Valley, we are still in the process of obtaining approval for our urban renewal application. Before obtaining the approval from local authorities, we will continue to lease out the units in Inno Valley in short-term tenancy. The occupancy rate of Inno Valley was 78% as of March 31, 2021.
    • For Nam Tai - Longxi, as of March 31, 2021, the basement work has been completed. We are currently working on the main structure's construction. Due to stressed liquidity condition of the Company, the construction progress of the project has been adversely affected. We are negotiating with the contractors.

    Industrial Operation Progress

    • In January 2021, "Nam Tai National High-tech Enterprise Cultivation and Innovation Center" was established in Nam Tai Inno Park with the objective to facilitate enterprises to obtain national qualification of high and new technology enterprise and to support the growth of enterprises through our comprehensive trainings. In March 2021, we organized the first training course "Nam Tai National High-tech Enterprise" in which representatives of the Science and Technology Innovation Association of Guangming Science City elaborated industrial development policies of Guangming District and we attracted 12 enterprise tenants to join. In the same month, we held the "Nam Tai Inno Park Enterprise Talent Fair" to assist the tenants on talent recruitment.

    Real Estate Market Update

    In the first quarter of 2021, the supply and demand of commercial housing in Dongguan hit a record high in the same period of nearly five years, of which the supply floor area and transacted floor area reached approximately 1.13 million and 1.42 million square meters, respectively, representing year-on-year growths of 136% and 118%. The average transaction price of commercial housing in Dongguan in this period increased by approximately 26% year-on-year to RMB28,479 per square meter.

    RECENT DEVELOPMENTS

    Appeal on the Judgment of the BVI Court

    On April 7, 2021, we filed an application to appeal the March 3, 2021 judgment issued by the Eastern Caribbean Supreme Court in the High Court of Justice in the British Virgin Islands. The judgment held that the Private Placement previously announced by us on October 5, 2020 was void and should be set aside. On April 20, 2020, in connection with our appeal of the judgment, the Eastern Caribbean Court of Appeal in the British Virgin Islands (the "Court of Appeal") has granted an order postponing the special meeting of shareholders previously scheduled for April 26, 2021. The meeting will be rescheduled at a later date to be determined by the court in due course.

    Supply Chain Fund Managed by Credit Suisse

    We have placed $150 million out of the proceeds from the Private Placement to a supply chain fund managed by Credit Suisse (the "Fund") with the objective of seeking a stable and enhanced return through an insured cash management solution. As represented by Credit Suisse, the Fund was a safe "liquidity management tool" with a weekly redemption feature and "100% protection on the underlying investments". The underlying notes were insured by insurance companies with a credit rating of at least A by Standard & Poor's or A2 by Moody's. In January 2021, the Company received a redemption amount of $15 million from the Fund. Subsequently, the Fund was terminated on March 4, 2021 and is being liquidated due to some of the Fund's assets being subject to considerable valuation uncertainty and reduced availability of insurance coverage for new investments. We have been notified by the Fund that the liquidation proceeds will be repaid in installments. As of April 26, 2021, we had received two installments in an aggregate of $68.7 million, or over 51% of the principal of $135 million, from the Fund.

    On April 16, 2021, we sent a demand letter to Credit Suisse for the remaining repayments and reserved all our rights to take further legal actions for breach of duty, misrepresentation and/or mis-selling. On April 19, 2021, we filed complaints to Securities & Futures Commission of Hong Kong and Hong Kong Monetary Authority. We are actively negotiating with Credit Suisse and are committed to act in the best interest of the Company. There is no assurance that we can fully recover our principal from the Fund.

    Industrial Supervision Agreement of Nam Tai Technology Center

    We are negotiating an industrial supervision agreement with the local authorities before we can obtain the pre-sale permit for Nam Tai Technology Center, which includes performance indicators such as total investment amount on Nam Tai Technology Center, and the aggregated output value and tax contribution attained by the enterprises registered in Nam Tai Technology Center. The outcome of this negotiation is uncertain.  For more information, please see "Business Overview – Project Construction and Development Progress".

    Lawsuit filed by a supplier

    On April 26, 2021, one of the Company's subsidiaries received a writ of summons from the Shenzhen Guangming District People's Court together with a civil complaint filed with such court by one of our suppliers, under which the supplier sought an order requiring us to settle the outstanding construction fees of around $ 5 million. We are negotiating with the supplier and seeking legal advice from external counsel.

    Notes:

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

    (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)  Properties completed refer to the status following the completion of the construction of the properties, the registration of the completion acceptance and the internal acceptance criteria.

    (d)  As of March 31, 2021, the construction of Towers 1, 2, 4, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 of Nam Tai Inno Park was completed.

    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 (www.namtai.com) or the SEC website (www.sec.gov) for our press releases and financial results.
