FRAMEWORK AGREEMENT

Reference is made to the announcements of the Company dated 13 July 2018 and 19 September 2018 and the circular of the Company dated 22 October 2018 in relation to the 2017 Framework Agreement. As the 2017 Framework Agreement will expire on 31 December 2019 and the transactions contemplated thereunder will continue to be entered into on a recurring basis, the Company announces that on 6 December 2019, the Company and its subsidiary SMSC entered into the Framework Agreement in relation to the supply of goods, rendering of or receiving services, leasing of assets, transfer of assets, provision of technical authorisation or licensing and provision of guarantee. The Framework Agreement is for a term of two years commencing on 1 January 2020 and ending on 31 December 2021.

LISTING RULES IMPLICATIONS

As at the date of this announcement, China IC Fund holds approximately 15.77% interest in the Company through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Xinxin (Hongkong) Capital Co., Limited. Accordingly, it is a connected person of the Company at the issuer level pursuant to the Listing Rules. As at the date of this announcement, the registered capital of SMSC is held as to approximately 50.1% and 27.04% by the Group and China IC Fund, respectively.

With regards to Type VI CCT, the Annual Caps for each year ending 31 December 2020 and 2021 is US$1,000 million. Such Annual Caps are split into (i) US$990 million for the maximum amount of the financial liabilities of SMSC in respect of which that guarantee can be provided by the Company or its subsidiaries (the ''Balance Cap''); and (ii) US$10 million for the fee payable by SMSC in consideration for such guarantee (the ''Guarantee Fee Cap''), and the Balance Cap and Guarantee Fee Cap are determined as follows:

  1. the Balance Cap of US$990 million is primarily determined based on the future capital expenditure and the financing needs of SMSC for the years ending 31 December 2020 and 2021; and
  2. the Guarantee Fee Cap of US$10 million for each year ending 31 December 2020 and 2021 is determined based on the Balance Cap of US$990 million and a guarantee fee charge rate up to 1.0%. Such charge rate was determined based on the fee quotes provided by commercial banks who are independent third parties.

In arriving at the Annual Caps for the Framework Agreement CCT, the Company has considered reasonable factors such as the historical transaction amount, the expected occurrences of the Framework Agreement CCT in light of current market conditions of the semiconductor industry and the technological capability of the Company as well as the Company's historical revenues.

INTERNAL CONTROL MEASURES FOR THE FRAMEWORK AGREEMENT CCT

The consideration of the Framework Agreement CCT will be settled in accordance with the relevant implementation agreement for each transaction. The Company has in place a series of internal control measures to ensure that the terms of the Framework Agreement are fair and reasonable and that the Framework Agreement CCT will be conducted on normal commercial terms. As the Framework Agreement CCT also constitute related party transactions for the Company, they will be subject to the related party transaction policy of the Group, which is further explained below:

  1. The board of directors of SMSC has established a related and connected party transaction review committee (the ''Review Committee''). The Review Committee shall report to the board of directors of SMSC and shall be accountable to the board of directors of SMSC. The Review Committee comprised of three members of which one of them was appointed by SMIC Holdings Corporation (''SMIC Holdings'') and Semiconductor Manufacturing International (Shanghai) Corporation (''SMIC Shanghai'') and the other two were appointed by each of Shanghai Integrated Circuit Industry Investment Fund Management Co., Ltd (''Shanghai IC Fund'') and China IC Fund. Poll system is adopted for the voting of the Review Committee and resolutions of the committee should be passed by votes of more than half of the members of the committee. The Review Committee is responsible for reviewing and approving the framework agreement and pricing policy of related and connected transactions entered into by SMSC and the Group. The Review Committee shall monitor and review related and connected party transactions between SMSC and the Group;
  2. The Company's compliance office will perform quarterly check on the Framework Agreement CCT to ensure compliance with pricing policies and Annual Caps are not exceeded;
  3. The Company's external auditors will conduct an annual review of the Framework Agreement CCT to ensure the transaction amounts are within the Annual Caps and the transactions are in accordance with the terms set out in the Framework Agreements; and
  4. Group A and SMSC each employs and maintains separate business, operation and accounting personnel of its own. There is clear segregation of approval authority and duty between the two entities. In general, for each type of the Framework Agreement CCT under the Framework Agreement, either the Company or SMSC would propose the transaction price after the review and approval by the relevant department(s), such as the manufacturing department, business administration department, the finance and accounting department, depending on the type of the transaction. The counter party of the relevant department(s) will then, also review and approve the pricing of the transaction before acceptance. As the Company and SMSC maintains separate business units and separate personnel, the relevant department(s) that

- 10 -

proposes the transaction price and the relevant department(s) of the counter party that accepts such transaction price would be different persons and under different departmental management.

In accordance with the Listing Rules, the independent non-executive Directors and the auditors of the Company will also perform an annual review of the terms of the Framework Agreement CCT to ensure that the pricing policy and the Annual Caps remain fair and reasonable and that appropriate internal control procedures are in place, and will confirm so each year in the annual report published by the Company.

Considering the general principles and the detailed pricing policies, the Directors (including the independent non-executive Directors) are of the view that the methods and procedures are sufficient to ensure that the Framework Agreement CCT will be conducted on normal commercial terms or better and not prejudicial to the interests of the Company and its minority Shareholders.

REASONS FOR AND BENEFITS OF THE FRAMEWORK AGREEMENT CCT

The Company considers that the entry into the Framework Agreement and the Framework Agreement CCT will provide the Company with an effective and complete wafer production to meet its needs.

SMSC operates a 12-inch wafer fab with advanced process capability. As the market demand for advanced process continues to surge, the Company will allocate some of its advanced node manufacturing to SMSC to ensure future wafer production needs of the Company are met.

The business partnership between the Company and SMSC will help to eliminate some duplicated efforts in introducing and manufacturing advanced nodes for IC design houses, thereby reducing the time to market and some overhead expenses for both parties. With the expansion of its capacity and continuous innovation, the Company believes that it will be able to enhance its position in the industry and benefit from the increase in its economies of scale.

The Directors (excluding the independent non-executive Directors whose view will be given in the relevant circular after taking into account the advice from the Independent Financial Adviser) are of the view that it is in the best interests of the Company and the Shareholders as a whole to enter into the Framework Agreement and the Framework Agreement CCT, the terms of the Framework Agreement including the proposed Annual Caps are fair and reasonable, and the entering into of the Framework Agreement and the Framework Agreement CCT are on normal commercial terms or better and in the ordinary and usual course of business of the Group.

No Director was considered to have a material interest in the Framework Agreement at the board meeting held to approve the Framework Agreement and which would have required the Director to abstain from voting at such board meeting.
