During the period by precisely capturing the cities with strong growth prospects and adopting a proactive project launch approach, the Group sustained a steady growth in property sales in second-tier and third-tier cities in the first half of 2018. For the Period, revenue was approximately RMB4,130 million, representing an increase of approximately 42% as compared to the corresponding period in 2017. Profit attributable to the owners of the Company increased to approximately RMB973 million representing an increase of approximately 89% as compared of the corresponding period in 2017. Basic earnings per share was 39.70 cents, representing an increase of approximately 48% as compared with approximately RMB 26.91cents in the corresponding period in 2017. The Board declared an interim dividend of HK 10 cents for the period (for six months ended 30 June 2017: Nil).

In the first half of 2018, the central government of the People's Republic of China ("PRC") introduced a new round of city-specific measures to regulate the property market, which led to a slowdown in property market growth and more stable property prices in first-tier cities. However, both the sale volume and sale prices of residential properties surged in second- and third-tier cities mainly because of the demand for housing continued to spill over from overheated markets in first-tier cities since 2017. The surge was also driven by the demand for trading up to better housing as well. During the Period, the Group 's contracted sales surged by approximately 90% to RMB7.357 billion. Contracted sales area amounted to approximately 719,400 sq.m., representing a period-on-period increase of approximately 54%. The average contracted sales price was RMB10,226 per sq.m., representing an increase of 23% compared with RMB 8,301 per sq.m. in the same period last year.

Revenue from sales of properties for the six months ended 30 June 2018 was approximately RMB4.130 billion, representing a period-on-period increase of approximately of 42%. The increase was mainly due to the delivery of properties pre-sold under Yangzhou Jiayuan Centurial City upon completion. In addition, the Group's projects, including residential and commercial complexes, aim to provide a one-stop shopping experience that caters for the daily needs of residents and those of the wider community. During the period, the monthly rental income from the Group's investment properties increased. As a result, revenue generated from the investment properties increased to approximately RMB16 million. The Group's gross profit increased by approximately 35% year on year to approximately RMB1.370 billion.

In order to implement its strategy for developing itself into a bigger and stronger company, the Group stepped up its effort to carry out mergers and acquisitions of property projects. During the first half of 2018, the Group further expanded its land reserve in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Bay Area by acquiring 12 property projects through mergers and acquisitions, tenders, auctions and bids for lands in the listings posted by the local government and partnerships for joint property development, etc. For example, the Group acquired 3 Hong Kong property projects; and it also invested in the upgrading and renovation of Jiangmen Jiayuan Didu Hot Spring project. In addition, the Group remains focused on the major cities in Yangtze River Delta, and obtained certain premium projects in Jiangsu province and Shanghai during the year. Meanwhile, the Group succeeded in extending its market coverage to key provincial capital cities, including Guiyang and Urumqi. The Group also entered the markets of the countries and regions covered by China's Belt and Road Initiative. For instance, it made its first foray into Cambodia, marking a milestone in the Group's effort to internationalize its business. As at 30 June 2018, the Group's land bank was approximately 9.8 million sq.m. in site area, and its property portfolio comprised 41 properties in various major cities in the PRC, comprising 29 residents complex and 12 commercial complex.

In order to bolster its financial strength, the Group issued senior notes in the principal amount of US$350 million, beginning interest at a fixed rate of 8.125% in the first half of 2018 and recorded oversubscribed of more than US$1 billion. As at 30 June 2018, the bank balances and cash and restricted/pledged bank deposits of the Group were approximately RMB9.984 billion, representing an increase of approximately 49% compared with the approximately RMB6.717 billion as at 31 December 2017.

Looking ahead to the future, the Group believes that there will be more opportunities for mergers and acquisitions of property projects, Steady financial situation will help the Group to seize more market resources. The Group will continue with a prudent financial policy, speed up contract sales and collection of cash from property sales, ensure the quality of construction and employees' safety, and strictly control various expenses to ensure good performance in terms of operating cash flow and return on investment.
