China Yuchai Approves Equity Incentive Plans to Be Implemented by Its Subsidiaries

SINGAPORE, June 7, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — China Yuchai International Limited (NYSE: CYD) (“China Yuchai” or the “Company”) today announced its Board of Directors has approved two equity incentive plans, proposed to be implemented by its Chinese subsidiaries, Guangxi Yuchai Machinery Company Limited (“GYMCL“) and Guangxi Yuchai Marine and Genset Power Co., Ltd. (“MGP“), in respect of equity interests in MGP (collectively, the “Equity Plans“). GYMCL is a 76.41%-subsidiary of China Yuchai and MGP is a wholly-owned subsidiary of GYMCL.

Pursuant to the Equity Plans, the registered capital of MGP will be increased by RMB28.00 million (approximately US$3.94 million), representing approximately 6.54% of the enlarged equity interest of MGP (the “MGP Interest“). The participants of the Equity Plans (the “Participants“), who are selected directors, officers and other employees of GYMCL and its subsidiaries (including MGP) (the “GYMCL group“), will contribute an aggregate amount of RMB82.88 million (approximately US$11.66 million) for the subscription of the MGP Interest, at a price of RMB2.96 (approximately US$0.42) per RMB1.0 registered capital, by separate partnership vehicles through which the Participants will acquire indirectly their respective portions of  the MGP Interest. The Participants in turn will hold direct interests in such partnership vehicles in accordance with the terms and conditions of the Equity Plans (including various lock-up restrictions as specified under the Equity Plans).

The Equity Plans are subject to and will take effect upon the approval by GYMCL’s shareholders at its shareholders’ meeting to be held on June 20, 2024.

With the implementation of the Equity Plans, GYMCL aims to achieve the objective of allowing the Participants whose contributions are important to the long-term growth of the GYMCL group to acquire an equity stake in a key entity of the GYMCL group so as to better align their interests to those of GYMCL and motivate and incentivize them for their continued contributions, dedication and loyalty to the GYMCL group.

Under IFRS, there is expected to be a charge of share-based expense to the Company’s profit and loss account in relation to the Equity Plans (the “Share-based Expense“), and such charge will be determined based on, among other things, a valuation of MGP.  The Company currently expects to adopt a valuation of MGP in the amount of RMB2.48 billion (approximately US$349.14 million), representing a fair value of MGP as of December 31, 2023. After applying the Finnerty Model, the fair value of the MGP Interest is estimated at RMB131.69 million (approximately US$18.52 million). The Share-based Expense is estimated at RMB48.81 million (approximately US$6.87 million) which is to be amortized over six years in view of the relevant lock-up restrictions imposed on the Participants under the Equity Plans (including a 3-year moratorium on their interests in relevant partnership vehicles in the event of a public listing by MGP).
