1.What's CPT's dividend policy?


Except in limited circumstances under ROC Company Law, we are not permitted to distribute dividends or make other distributions to shareholders in respect of any year in which we did not record net income. The ROC Company Law also requires that 10% of annual net income (less prior years' losses and any taxes due) be set aside as a legal reserve until the accumulated legal reserve equals a company's paid-in capital. We also record special reserve depending on the government' rule. In addition, our articles of incorporation require that before a dividend is paid out of our annual net income, 1%~10% and less than 1% of our annual net income, after (a) covering prior years' operating losses, if any, (b) paying any taxes due, (c) setting aside 10% of the remaining amount as a legal reserve after deducting (a) and (b), and (d) setting aside a special reserve if required by the government authorities, should be paid to our employees as bonuses and directors & supervisors as remuneration after the AGM's resolution.
CPT is a hi-tech company and it is growing in the enterprise life cycle. To keep expanding its operations scale and compete with world-class enterprises, the amount of dividends should be considered with the company's capital expenditure and demand on cash. The cash-dividend will not be less than 10% of total dividends. However the percentage of cash-dividend can be adjusted according to the amount of net income and future demand on cash.

4. Will fractional common shares be issued in connection with the stock dividend?
Will cash payments be made in lieu of any fractional common shares?


In connection with the stock dividend to be distributed to common shareholders, no fractional common shares will be issued, either. However, holders of CPT common shares may arrange for pooling together their fractional share entitlements to form one share and register such pooling in connection with the stock dividend within five days after the date of closing the stock transfer books. For the fractional shares which can not be pooled, the distribution will be made in cash in dollar amount calculated at par value.

 

 
5.What is a stock dividend? How will a stock dividend affect my ownership of
CPT shares?


A "stock dividend" is a distribution of additional company shares, which from capitalization of retained earnings, to existing company's shareholders for each share of stock already owned.
Example: In 2005, CPT distributed a 9% stock dividend. This means that for every 1000 common shares owned on the record date for the stock dividend, a shareholder would automatically receive an additional 90 shares of CPT.
