On November 20, 2019, we were dismissed. We have read the Company’s statements included under Item 16F of its December 31, 2019 annual report on Form 20-F dated May 1, 2020, and we agree with such statements, except that:


(1) We are not in a position to agree or disagree with the Company’s statements that effective from November 20, 2019, the Company engaged Ernst & Young Hua Ming LLP, or E&Y, as the independent registered public accounting firm, and the change was approved by the audit committee of the board.


(2) We are not in a position to agree or disagree with the Company’s statement that during each of the year ended December 31, 2017 and 2018 and the subsequent period prior to the engagement of E&Y regarding (i) the application of accounting principles to a specific transaction, either completed or proposed, or the type of audit opinion that might be rendered on the Company’s consolidated financial statements, and neither a written report nor oral advice was provided to the Company that E&Y concluded was an important factor considered by the Company in reaching a decision as to any accounting, auditing, or financial reporting issue, (ii) any matter that was the subject of a disagreement pursuant to Item 16F(a)(1)(iv) of the instructions to Form 20-F, or (iii) any reportable event pursuant to Item 16F(a)(1) (v) of the instructions to Form 20-F.
