Net loss attributable to ordinary shareholders was $0.23 million, or loss per share of $0.02, for the first half of 2021, compared to net income attributable to ordinary shareholders of $0.13 million, or earnings per share of $0.01, for the same period of last year.

Mr. Siping Xu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of the Company, commented, “The cooling down of new construction in the residential housing market in China had a negative impact on our operation results; however, we are glad to see our establishment of a new joint venture company in the United Kingdom in August 2021 for asset management business, which was a significant step for our global expansion strategy. Going forward, we expect the improved housing market in China will boost our revenue growth. Meanwhile, we will keep exploring viable strategic alternatives to strengthen our business.”
