This is the second year of Changfeng’s three-year plan to strategically shift its corporate focus to sustainable energy in combination with natural gas to become an integrated energy provider in the PRC. In line with this strategy, Changfeng has taken steps to divest part of its ownership stake (the “Disposal”) in Pingxiang Changfeng Gas Co., Ltd. (“Pingxiang CF”) to free up capital for other investment opportunities. The Disposal was completed on January 5, 2018 thereby recorded a net gain of RMB33.5 million (approximately CAD6.7million) in the three-month period ended March 31, 2018. After completion of the Disposal, the Group’s equity interest in Pingxiang CF reduced to 40% and such interest was re-classified as interest in associates of the Group.
