PRESS RELEASE

CITIC Capital Completes Acquisition of Nippon Oil Pump Co., Ltd.

(Tokyo, 4 December 2018) CITIC Capital Japan Partners III, LP (“CITIC Capital”), a Japan buyout fund managed by the private equity arm of CITIC Capital Holdings Limited, is pleased to announce that the acquisition of the entire stake in Nippon Oil Pump Co., Ltd. (“Nippon Oil Pump” or “NOP” or the “Company”) has been completed today.

Nippon Oil Pump is one of the leading manufacturers for internal gear pumps, which provides high-quality and high-performance products and solutions across a wide range of end-markets including machine tools, construction vehicles, general machinery, food & beverage dispensing, power infrastructures, and marine & ship equipment, amongst other applications.

NOP has also implemented two initiatives to achieve further growth rapidly in the overseas market. Its newly invented product series “NOP®COOLANT UNIT” has helped end-users to substantially save space, energy, and maintenance cost of machine tools. The products are getting widely popular not only in Japan but also in China, South Korea, India and Europe. NOP has also recently acquired Streamware-Components OHG, a Germany-based coolant unit system manufacturer.

CITIC Capital will leverage its extensive network and track records throughout China and Asia, its resources, knowledge and business management know-how to support Nippon Oil Pump’s further growth. Especially for the China market, we expect growing demand for NOP’s products driven by the “Made in China 2025” strategy plan.

CITIC Capital is strongly committed to supporting NOP’s management and employees to create long-term value to the Company.
