China Display Optoelectronics Technology Holdings Limited Announces Unaudited Financial and Operating Data for the First Quarter of 2018
Laminated LCD Module Products Contributed Half of the Sales
Driving Up the Average Selling Price to RMB 70.2

HONG KONG, Apr 24, 2018 - (Media OutReach) - China Display Optoelectronics Technology Holdings Limited ("Ch Display Opt" or the "Company", together with its subsidiaries, the "Group"; HKSE stock code: 334) is pleased to announce its unaudited financial and operating data for the three months ended 31 March 2018 (the "Period").

During the Period, due to the lack of innovative incentives that encouraged new smartphone purchases, the domestic demand of smartphones continued to drop. The Group's total sales volume of products was 8.14 million units, representing a decrease of 32.6% year-on-year, of which the sales volume of non-laminated LCD module products was 4.07 million units, a decline of 49.4% year-on-year; while that of laminated LCD module products was 4.07 million units, an increase of 0.8% year-on-year.

Due to decreasing production targets of major smartphone manufacturers in the fourth quarter of 2017, the market conditions turned unfavourable as compared with the same period last year, so that the Group's average selling price of non-laminated LCD module products and laminated LCD module products recorded a year-on year drop of 8.9% and 5.3%, respectively. However, owing to the optimisation of the product portfolio, the proportion of sales volume of laminated LCD module products has been raised to 50%, driving the average selling price of the Group in the first quarter of 2018 to RMB70.2, representing an increase of 4.4% year-on-year. During the Period, the Group's revenue amounted to RMB572 million, representing a decrease of 29.6% year-on-year, among which the revenue of laminated LCD module products was RMB381 million, a drop of 4.5% year-on-year; while that of non-laminated LCD module products was RMB191 million, a decrease of 53.9% year-on-year.

Given the market demand on full-screen products, the Group acted swiftly, and successfully produced the first batch of full-screen and full-screen notch-cutting module products nationally including LTPS products in July 2017 and February 2018, respectively. In the meantime, the Group captured the opportunity brought forth by the Internet of Things, and launched a partnership with a renowned Internet company in March 2018, which introduced a new smart home end product carrying the Group's display modules to the market.

Mr. LI Jian, Chief Executive Officer of Ch Display Opt, said, "Under the influence of the recent trade war between the United States and China as well as the geopolitical situations, it is expected that the competition in the module industry will continued to be fierce in 2018. The Group will continue to further explore the synergies with Wuhan CSOT, so as to sustain the enhancement of the Group's operational capabilities and competitiveness. Along with the commencement of mass production of Wuhan CDOT, the joint venture, in the fourth quarter of 2017, it is expected that Wuhan CDOT will be able to provide customers with one-stop solutions that combine panel and module, which will allow the Group to attain more new top-tier branded customers. In the meantime, the Group will aim to leverage on the expertise and the increasingly stable panel resources of Wuhan CSOT to constantly optimise the product mix during industrial consolidation stage, and increase the sales proportion of high-end products such as LTPS products, in-cell products, and full-screen products, together with the new capacity of Wuhan CDOT, this will allow the Group to further expand its market share. The Group will actively explore the feasibility of venturing into other business, so as to lay a sound foundation for future operation to maximise the profit and value for the Group and its shareholders."
