The Group achieved a 30.7% increase in revenue in 1H2016, which was due to an increase in revenue from construction services provided under build-operate-transfer (“BOT”) concession agreements and the Group’s WTE business (excluding revenue from construction services provided under BOT concession agreements). As a result of consistent performance in both the WTE and energy management contracting (“EMC”) businesses of the Group, profit before tax increased by 26.4% to RMB372.7 million while EBITDA rose by 28.6% to RMB581.7 million for 1H2016. Overall, PATMI grew strongly by 20.7% from RMB212.1 million in 1H2015 to RMB256.0 million in 1H2016.
Jinjiang Environment has two main operating segments: (1) the WTE business, which includes construction services provided under BOT concession agreements, and (2) the EMC business.
(1) WTE business (excluding construction services provided under BOT concession agreements)

On-grid electricity supplied and waste treated grew 16.7% and 20.0% respectively in 2Q2016 and 11.8% and 16.4% respectively in 1H2016, in line with the increase in the supply of municipal solid waste to the WTE facilities and new facilities becoming operational. Overall, revenue increased by 4.0% from RMB615.6 million in 1H2015 to RMB640.4 million in 1H2016, backed by consistent and strong performance in the WTE services provided.

Revenue from construction services provided under BOT concession agreements significantly increased 468.7% from RMB47.6 million in 1H2015 to RMB270.7 million in 1H2016 mainly due to the provision of construction services for two projects in 2H2016.
The EMC business contributed 11% and 12% of total revenue in 2Q2016 and 1H2016 respectively. Its gross profit margin decreased to 74.2% in 1H2016 mainly due to the expansion of the EMC business.

Commenting on the Group’s performance in 1H2016, Ms. Wang Yuanluo, Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Jinjiang Environment, said: “We have delivered encouraging growth figures shortly after our successful listing on 3 August 2016. Our ability to sustain growth stems from our stable portfolio of WTE facilities across the PRC which continues to increase due to operational ramp up and selective capacity expansion, and having a pipeline of new WTE facilities to be added to our portfolio. We have commenced trial operations at the Songyuan Xinxiang WTE Facility in August 2016, and expect to complete construction at the Hohhot New Energy WTE Facility, Qitaihe WTE Facility and Gaomi Lilangminde WTE Facility in the second half of 2016. We have commenced construction at the Zibo New Energy WTE Facility and have an additional 11 WTE facilities in the preparatory stage. We also intend to acquire the Zhuji Bafang WTE Facility and the Wenling Green Energy WTE Facility in the second half of 2016, for which we will convene an extraordinary general meeting to seek the approval of our shareholders. By end of 2016, we expect to increase our daily treatment capacity by 7,150 tons, an increase of 31% as compared to 30 June 2016. Looking forward, we will make unremitting effort to continue sustainable growth in our business, and create optimal returns for our shareholders.”
Going forward, Jinjiang Environment will strive to expand its scale of operations, consolidate its position as a leader in the WTE industry in the PRC and adapt its technologies internationally. Jinjiang Environment will also strive to be a comprehensive waste energy service provider through expansion into
other verticals in the WTE industry. Jinjiang Environment hopes to achieve this through the following strategies and future plans:-

· diversify in the WTE value chain and establish itself as an integrated waste management services provider offering a comprehensive suite of waste collection, transportation, pre-treatment and treatment services;
· leverage on its market position and experience to grow its EMC and third party project management business; and
· expand its business internationally, with a specific focus on South-east Asia and other developing countries.
