Trucks, Dongfeng Liuzhou Motor Co., Ltd., DPCAFC and Dongfeng Finance. In addition, the
low base caused by the pandemic last year was also one of the reasons. It increased by
44.6% compared to the same period in 2019.

cents per share. The dividend payout rate reached 40%, which has significantly increased
compared to the previous dividend rate of approximately 20%. The Company mainly
compensated for the suspension of the 2020 final dividend due to preparations for the

dividend payout ratio to 40% in the event of successful listing on the A-share market
