Message from the Chairman Dear Shareholders, As a result of major financial institutions crisis in the United States of America in 2008 which readily sent impacts worldwide and which continued up to 2009, so much so that many assessed that it would be extremely severe enough to cause another round of economic crisis, L.P.N. Development Public Company Limited in the past year of 2009 then managed its business very carefully based on the principle of attaching importance to all dimensions of our operations. We aimed to build up a sustainable growth in harmony with a change of the way of thinking and the operation process which hopefully would make a difference continuously, both in term of products and services. The idea was to create confidence of the customers in the “Lumpini” brand. This eventually led to words of mouth by our customers which duly catapulted the company’s operations to have grown beyond the target, while at the same time maintaining the benefits of all groups of vested interest. All of these had been carried out under the good governance principle, which means that we aim to administer and manage the business with transparency, and which has always been our important business pillar throughout. The fact that we have been rated a company with good corporate governance at very good level for the 6th successive year by the IOD, particularly in the category of attaching importance to the rights of shareholders, disclosure of information, and transparency, for which we have been assessed at excellent level, guarantees well the effective operations of our company. At the time we are committed to maintaining the operations standards and profits making so as to create suitable returns to all groups of stakeholders, we still attach importance to our responsibility to the environments and the society. And this has been expanded every year since the day the Company was founded. We do this by first developing quality residences for mid-range and lower mid-range target groups, and at the same time inspiring a good culture of harmony living among them to create a “Vibrant Community”, then by encouraging a participation among residences that would lead to public mind from all sectors concerned in order to jointly develop the environments and the society in our own community and communities nearby, by sharing to the society at large so as to bring smiles and happiness among members in the wider society, and by developing residential projects which respond to the needs of a large number of people, along with the development of quality of life, environments and society, as well as the good cultures within the communities. All of these, we believe, would help make the operations of the Company to achieve the stability and sustainable growth. In 2010, though there will still be some uncertainties all around, nevertheless, the need for quality residence remains the main factor of life, particularly in the target group of mid-range and lower mid-range earners, which has always been our target. This of course is likely to enable the Company to achieve its targets. However, real estate business is still plagued with many risk factors, whether it be fierce competition, increasing costs, economic and political unstabilities. Therefore, in this year of 2010, we will still adhere to the principle of keeping the balance of management and continuous growing returns. Also, this year is the last year of the Stage 3 Vision, which emphasizes on the quality development and the keeping of trust and belief among our customers in the brand that is widely accepted and highly regarded, which will eventually lead to words of mouth of good experiences, so that “Lumpini” will always be in the heart of those who need their first “home”, as is the intention of our business operations. Throughout the past two decades and 2 crises of LPN, not only has it given us strengths and experiences along the route of real estate business, but also acted as another learning chapter for us as to how we could share happiness to others, which, in turn, brings back more happiness to the heart of the giver. In the name of L.P.N. Development Public Company Limited, I would like to thank all of our customers, trading partners, staff, executives, and the Board of Directors, for this great participation, and, most importantly, a big thank you to all shareholders who have jointly created and shared such happiness to each other endlessly.

Summary of Performance in 2009 L.P.N. Development Public Co., Ltd. operates the real estate development business of residential condominiums, under the “Lumpini” brand, for consumers in the upper-middle to the lower-middle income segments, who desire quality residence in the metropolitan area.The Company adheres to the principle of operational balance in all dimensions, in concert with the Sufficiency Economy philosophy and good corporate governance. The year 2009 was a year with all around risk factors, especially from the crisis of large financial institutions in the U.S.A., including the domestic political situations. Even though many situations seemed to improve toward the year’s end, they are still fragile; in addition,oil prices continued to rise steadily-causing concerns over impacts on prices of construction materials. During the end of the year, small and medium operators which had been following the situation started to open projects continually, after a period of delay in development. Large developers-with advantages in investment funds, trust, and brands - all had been successful on sales and project openings since the beginning of the year.The reason was that the demands for residential housing still exist incessantly, while the supply had decreased noticably. Likewise, the Company’s operational results in various aspects are still growing continually-both sales and realized income; together with compliance with good corporate governance principles, for which the Company received ranking by the Institute of Thai Directors (IOD) as a company with very good governance (4 stars) for the 6th consecutive year. Also, a product of the Company-the 26 m2 condominium room, was rated as the Product of the Year 2009 by one newspaper media. Company performance in 2009 exceeded the established targets, due to the rush of customers to transfer rights during end of year period to retain tax benefits that would expire. Despite the economic downturn and high risk factors-especially liquidity and market confidence, the Company opened projects throughout last year. The first project, opened in February, was the Lumpini Place Ramindra-Laksi, which was a development of land on-hand to reduce risks and to observe market trend. That project was well-received, to an extent; and the Company was able to complete construction and delivered to customers in November-several months ahead of the delivery schedule, reflecting efficiency, quality and speed of construction by the Company’s allied contractors. After a careful situational assesment, the Company decided to open the next project in the 2nd Quarter: the Lumpini CondoTown Ramindra-Nawamin, the first high-rise building project under the “Lumpini CondoTown” brand, and a new product developed to satisfy the current market condition: a 25 m2 one-bedroom condominium. Then the Company opened the Lumpini Ville Ratburana-Riverview in the 3rd Quarter. And in the 4th Quarter, the Company opened 2 more projects: Lumpini Park-Pinklao, which was a specific brand where the project areas of more than 4 rais had been designed as recreational garden and activity areas under the “Suan Ruamjai Garden” that was completed before opening, another innovation and product value delivered to customers. Another project was the Lumpini Ville Latphrao-Chokchai 4. Both projects had produced as much as 4,000 million baht of sales to the Company. In regards to the customer dimension, the Company has upgraded customer management from building relationship to creating experiences, by establishing service standards encompassing all contact-points-which are considered part of the Service Value to instill customers’ confidence toward the “Lumpini” brand and a wider brand communication. Last year, the Company employed a brand communication consultant company to align all brand communications to ensure brand integrity and concrete results, especially the “Vibrant Community” strategy-which is intangible issue for the general public. The first phase of brand communication focused on ‘Happiness of Togetherness’ under the project name ‘30 Happy Days’, in which the Company and the consultant company invited 4 artists to share happiness of living in various “Lumpini” branded projects for 1 month, to share happiness in community and experiences through the www.30happydays.com website. In addition, residents were invited to reflect happiness through “Door Hangings,” the results of which surpassed expectation, with more than 2,000 pieces returned to the Company, helping to build morale of staff, especially cleaning staff and security personnel who received much praises. In 2009, the Company commands approximately 20% market share of residential condominiums completed and registered in Bangkok and metropolitan areas-a total number of which equals to about 33,000 registered residential condominiums units in 116 projects, a 28% increase from 2008. The Company has about 6,300 registered residential condominiums units in 7 projects, and 5 project openings- approx. 32% of new residential condominiums units in Bangkok and metropolitan areas last year. With respect to operational performance, the Company, subsidiaries, and associates had total revenues of Baht 8,513.27 million, a 17.85% increase from Baht 7,233.29 million in 2008, from realized revenues of 7 projects completed in 2009 and partially from projects completed in the prior year. Gross profit margin from sale improved from 31.24% to 31.32%, with a net profit margin of 15.81%. Revenues from rental and services, including management services, increased 19.89% from 2008. Consequently, the Company maintains steady growth rates, in spite of economic decline and surrounding risk factors. On the Company’s financial status as of December 31, 2009, the Company has total assets of Baht 8,088.04 million, an 8.57% decrease from Baht 8,846.49 million in 2008, resulting from current assets decrease of Baht 185.95 million in unbilled construction income and Baht 878.61 million in Land & Cost of Project under development. Total liabilities of the Company decreased from Baht 4,362.02 million Annual Report 2009 L.P.N. Development PLC.

In regards to the statement of cash flows as of December 31, 2009, the Company has cash, cash equivalents, and current investments of Baht 1,319.20 million in total. After deduction of Interest-bearing debts of Baht 1,024.31 million, the Company has Baht 294.89 million of excess liquidity; a reflection of Company’s financial strength. Debt-to-equity ratio decreased from 0.97 to 0.54, and Interest-bearing debts-to-equity decreased from 0.58 to 0.19, respectively. In accordance with the Board of Directors’ resolution to approve the treasury stock program on October 9, 2008, with the repurchased period from October 24, 2008 to April 23, 2009, as of January 15, 2009 the Company has repurchased 8,146,300 units totaling Baht 17,841,189 of treasury stocks, equal to 0.552% of paid-up capital at Baht 2.19 per-share averages, and the Company has sold those treasury stocks during December 3-11, 2009 at the average Baht 7.01 per share, for a total of Baht 57,103,415; the Company received Baht 39,262,226 profits from sale of treasury stocks. In response to the economic slowdown, the Company limits increase of personnel by improving internal process (Reprocess) continuously, allowing the Company to achieve or exceed targets with limited personnel resources. On responsibility to the environment and society, the Company implements continuously on both the In Process and the Out Process, including a variety of social activities, i.e. blood donation activities, increase of green zones within the project and surrounding community, waste-separation, 1-hour lights off campaign, campaign to reduce use of plastic bags. All activities emphasizes initiation from inside the organization, before expanding to other segments. For the year 2010, from many forecasts and company’s internal information, an economic recovery is anticipated. At the same time, some sectors still exhibit fragility and risks: trends of oil-prices affecting material costs and inflation, stringency of financial institutions, increasingly severe competition, tense political situations, including non-renewal of real estate business stimulation measures -which may result in market activities in March, but diminishes afterwards in the beginning of the 2nd Quarter. The Company Board of Directors has established business direction for 2010 by cautious growth, accompanied by risk management and close monitoring of situations. Growth rate has been set at 20% for realized revenues, which is expected at Baht 9,600 million from 6 completed projects-i.e. Lumpini Ville Bangkae, Lumpini Place Ratchada-Rama 9, Lumpini CondoTown Ramindra-Navamin, Lumpini CondoTown Bangkae, Lumpini Ville Ratburana-Riverview, and lastly, Lumpini Ville Latprao-ChokeChai 4 which was opened last November.

In 2009, customers of the Company were rejected for financing applications at approx. 10-12% Regarding opening plans for new projects, the Company plans to open 6-8 new projects, totaling approx.

Brand Management of the “LUMPINI” brand A brand is an intangible asset that every company attaches importance to and is determined to build, uphold, and communicate to target groups. Amidst the ever-increasing, rigorous competition, the successful brands are those with a clear brand identity. Those brands often are committed to consumers on delivery of products or services that exceed expectations; with “corporate cultures or values” as an impetus for value creation, and business ethics as regulator. Massive budgets on advertising and PR to create short-term awareness merely for sales results-with no conscience of responsibility-may not meet with successes in this era of information and internet-technology society, in which consumers are knowledgeable and conscientious of their rights. The Company is fully aware of the importance of this, and has consequently adopted directions for brand development and management from business operations that create recognition and trust-the core foundation of allegiance and word-of-mouth testimonials. The Company eschews spending substantial advertising and PR expenses on promotions that are devoid of fundamentals; in addition to the establishment of “corporate values” to reinforce brand management. Throughout 20 years of business operation, the main factor for sustainable growth of the Company is consumers’ confidence toward the “Lumpini” brand, which comprises not only quality of products-i.e. locations of potentials, condominiums in ‘LPN Design’ concept, various project components, but also the quality of services, including customer service management and post-sale services-community management under the “Vibrant Community” strategy. All these play significant roles in differentiation, and characterize the Company’s forte towards wide acceptance and ‘word-of-mouth’ recommendations. “Vibrant Community”: the propelling strategy of “Lumpini” brand The Company aspires to create and deliver true happiness of living for all members of the “Lumpini” family, toward “a community wherein people can live together happily, with appropriate components; a quality living in a pleasant society and environment- as well as culture.” The Company has thus adopted an effective community management strategy under direct responsibility of Lumpini Property Management Co., Ltd., an affiliate founded by the Company in 1992 to provide comprehensive community management under the F-B-L-E-S guideline: (1) Facility Management Facility management -an important community’s component- is a major responsibility of community management. The managment is responsible for common assets, especially those crucial elements of condominium; i.e. engineering and security systems-on which the maintenance units are tasked with preventive maintenance to ensure that all systems function normally, for convenience and safety, and which may affect directly the lives and property of all common owners or residents; or wastewater treatment system, which affects environment directly. (2) Budgeting Management Management of juristic condominium’s budget is a not-for-profit objective, but management of budget in accordance with policies approved by the General joint owners’ Meetings: to manage funds to ensure stability and growth, improving the community’s financial strength while maintaining the building’s efficiency and residents’ quality of lives -including financial reports that are easy to understand, transparent, and can be examined. (3) Life Quality Management For community management, in addition to facility management and budget management, quality of life of joint owners is equally important. This includes cleanliness, condominium’s regulations for disciplined communal living and orderliness of community, as well as activities to encourage the good Thai cultures. Such activities help create a good mutual relationship among joint owners or community’s residents, by developing cooperation from residents of Company-developed community and residents of surrounding areas. The Company provides full support and participation in:- Main / Core activities: annual general meetings of joint owners, fire drills-including campaigning for volunteers in the Fire Team project, etc. - Relationship-building activities: arrangement for exchange of communal-living experiences with management and project’s residents, leading to improvement and development guidelines to ensure happiness from living in a shared society; along with activities for those interested in arts and music, and family days to provide opportunities for residents of various households to meet, discuss, get acquainted, and exchange ideas. - Activities to promote jobs and incomes: arrangement of a community marketplace in the project, e.g. “LPN Condo Residents Combating Economic Crisis” organized at Lumpini CondoTown Bodindecha-Ramkhamhaeng for merchandise exchange and trade, as well as a channel for job applications and vocational trainings. Also, community marketplaces in 3 other projects: Lumpini Ville Cultural Centre, Lumpini Sukhumvit 77, and P.S.T. Buildings; all of which received excellent responses from members.

- Activities to promote members’ well-being: health examination by leading hospitals, aerobic, Yoga, Marathon-running activitie-e.g. a Marathon in Honour of Her Majesty the Queen on the national Mother’s day, and the “Lumpini Community Game”-a sport competition among members of more than 50 projects initiated in 2009. - Cultural activities: merit-making ceremonies for the buildings; organization of various festivities, e.g. New Year’s day, Loy Krathong Day, Family Day, etc. - Religious activities: merit-making ceremonies, sermon-attendance, meditation, 9-temple merit-making activities, and Buddhist-tourism, etc. - Social and environmental activities: quarterly blood-donation campaigns among project members, a Children’s Day activity for Sethabutra Patronage School students-a neighbor of Lumpini Ville Latphrao-Chokechai 4, a Campaign to help the Rama 3 Rong Kaew Community destroyed in a fire accident, and merit-making activities at the Banglamung Boys Orphanage. Regarding environmental proceedings, members have increased green areas within the projects. (4) Environment Management Concern for the environment is another obligation the Company attaches importance on, by focusing on environmental impacts on oint owners and the surrounding society, by adhering to the “Green Clean Lean” principles. For instance, wastewater treament in accordance with government criteria and reuse for plant-watering in the project, waste management by waste-separation and recycle, energy preservation, maintenance of green-areas or replacement tree planting inside and outside condominium areas to improve the standard of life for community, city-residents, and Bangkok city. In order to reassure our commitment to environment management, the Company has established a unit tasked with direct responsibility to promote and foster conscience and to arrange activities to monitor environmental impacts from project developments -both during construction and afterwards. (5) Security Management The Company places great importance on stringent management of security. The Company established security units to manage security within the project, under strict security strategies and standards of personnel and equipments; e.g. closed-circuit cameras, security-warning and communication systems, including joint collaborative networks within community and concerned governmental agencies, for maximum security of community’s members.

Brand Communication In 2008 the Company, in cooperation with a brand-communication consultant company, planned the development and communication of the “Lumpini” brand to wide audience, the target of which is a clear recognition on the core identity of the brand. From results of study, the “Real Pleasure of Living” definition was created; and to ensure clarity of the corporate logo and “Lumpini” brand identity, the Company has revised company’s logo and the “Vibrant Community” logo as shown below:-

Corporate Logo

“Vibrant Community” logos

In 2008, for a broad communication to general public -to expand awareness and recall, the Company has established a strategic communication campaign on “Vibrant Community” through new media and channels that are effective in direct access to target groups, and low expenses: i.e. websites. For this, the Company has established the ‘www.30happydays.com’ website specifically, besides communication via social networks -e.g.Twitter, facebook, by inviting new-generation artists from 4 branches of works to share happiness of living in various “Lumpini” branded projects for 30 days in October, and convey their experiences and impressions through this website to retain the confidence and good understandings toward the “Lumpini” brand. Moreover, activities were arranged to enable internal communications between members and company staff, to convey experiences and impressions received from being a part of the “Lumpini” community; a basis of the expression “Happiness can be shared”- a sincere feeling from the “Lumpini” community.

Research and Development The Company knows the importance of research and development and has established a research and development department comprised of personnel with the knowledge and ability as well as experience from various professional backgrounds, who are under the supervision of the managing director. The research encompasses the entire system of Company operations from selecting locations, development of products and services and cost reduction. The Company has specified the role and duties of the research and development department as follows: Research 1. Research to obtain information to make decisions for presentation to the executives, including macro level information such as world economic, social and political conditions, competition, supply and demand and market needs, information for development of projects such as locations prime for development, appropriate prices for each location and information on the needs of customers all of which will be used to develop products that meet the needs of consumer behavior of consumers as much as possible. 2. Research to develop and improve the efficiency of the Company’s performance with the objective to satisfy the needs of customers and add value to products and services as well as develop the Company’s methods (Reprocess) to reduce capital costs, losses and to improve the speed of operations. 3. Research to find business opportunities that appear due to changes in business environment, society, demographics and consumer behavior to support the Company’s growth in the future. Development Development of Products The heart of development is using information to develop both products and service of value that meet the needs of consumers, while maintaining an advantage over competitors, leading to faith in the “Lumpini” brand. Throughout the past, the Company has developed importantly in developing products that are deemed benchmark in condominium units development in the city which has been copied by many entrepreneurs. This is because it meets the needs of residents in all respects, under the brand “LPN Design” beginning with condominium studio units of 30 square meters and units with 2 bedrooms of 60 square meters that have set a new standard of condominium living that meet Thai lifestyle requirements and are easy to maintain. At present the Company’s products have been being updated until lately, a one bedroom condominium unit of 26 square meters even though small, can satisfy lifestyles and the customer’s needs, while maintaining a sale price that satisfies the needs of the target group of customers even when capital costs are continually increasing. Finally, the Company’s 26 square meter condominium unit received the “Product of the Year” award in 2009 from one newspaper. Development of Service The Company’s identity not only involves the development of products to meet the needs of consumers, but also involves service as an important factor in making the “Lumpini” brand different, especially the after sales service called “Community Management”, which has become widely acclaimed and passed on widely. The development of “Community Management” of the Company is conducted by Lumpini Property Management Company Limited, which has been established for over 15 years and is responsible for managing communities in which all projects are located and developed by the Company with 5 main roles that are constantly developed, namely, F (Facility)-Management of the common area, B (Budget)-Management of budget, L (Life Quality)-Management of life quality, E (Environment)-Management of the environment, S (Security)-Management of safety. The main goal is to create a “Vibrant Community” in which the residents live together with happiness with the appropriate factors, have quality living conditions in a society and environment and culture that is beautiful.

2. Water Efficiency - Use of water efficient bathroom equipment since some types of toilet bowls with dual flush mechanism can reduce water use by up to 50% - Use of treated waste water to water the plants in the project which is an efficient use of water and reduces the amount of water that flows out of the project into the public water systems - Installation of sprinkler systems that are efficient, such as drip systems to reduce water wastage - Campaign for residents to bathe using a shower head which conserves water each time 3. Energy Efficiency - Design of the condominium units with an awning and porch in order to reduce the amount of heat from sunlight that directly hits the unit - Design of lighting and air conditioning that is efficient and appropriate for use and to reduce electricity usage - Use of alternative energy sources such as solar power for lamps in the gardens - During management of the project after hand over, the manager of the building has the duty to use the energy in the building as efficiently as possible while being safe at the same time 4. Use of Material and Resources efficiently and appropriately - Selection of alternative materials that have been proven to be safe and environmentally friendly in place of materials from natural sources in order to reduce the affect on the environment such as using laminate wood floors instead of parquet floors with real wood - Design of dimensions of the building that coincide with the dimensions of materials used in construction to maximize the economic value and reduce waste of materials that would have to be discarded into the environment - The walls inside the units use stained glass instead of opaque walls to obtain natural sunlight while at the same time preserving privacy - Walls exposed to the East use insulated glass to reduce heat that comes with the sunlight in the afternoon which is the hottest part of the day - Design with a green wall for the parking lot to reduce the carbon dioxide and heat from getting into the residences and the surrounding area - Managing waste by separating garbage and garbage disposal appropriately both during construction and after residents have moved in 5. Creating an Indoor Environment Quality for Residents - Focus on efficiency of management of the community using the strategy F-B-L-E-S 1) Facility Management : Management of public utility systems and facilities within the project for maximum efficiency and appropriately for residents. 2) Budgeting Management : Management of finances and budgeting in a transparent manner within the project for maximum efficiency and to manage risk at the same time. 3) Life Quality Management : Building discipline and culture of living together mutually sharing for quality life of the community 4) Environment Management : Maintenance of the environment within the community as well as use of energy appropriately with regard to safety and conservation 5) Security Management : Management of security measures in various areas strictly for maximum efficiency beginning with designs and project planning, management and design of equipment and security measures and being strict with security personnel 6. Innovation in Design - Planning the layout of the building and project to coincide with the environment in consideration of sunlight and natural wind - Planning the layout and design to include open space inside the condominium units such as doors and windows that are appropriate for living - Reducing the time for construction through use of Semi Precast Concrete System It can be seen that the “LPN Green” ideal is not only a marketing tool for sale purposes but the form and the factors in the project coincide with LEED green building standards which clearly focus on the conscience of “Corporate Environmental and Social Responsibility (CESR)” while still considering the appropriateness and the possibility of other dimensions at the same time for sustainable development.

Competitive Environment Competition In 2009, the condominium market severely shrunk especially in the first half of the year when it shrunk by 60% due to the economic crisis which affected the market ever since the end of 2008, together with unstable political scene and the decision by consumers to wait to see the price of real estate. In any case, the condominium market still held the highest market share of around 42% due to popularity among the young generation, the price of gasoline which although lower than last year, still could increase. Most of the new condominiums that opened were by large developers with financial strength with a good reputation in the market with consumers and financial institutions. All of the projects opened last year were a success in terms of sales and took a 70% share of the market.

Condominiums opened in 2009 had around 25,000 units, down from 2008 which saw 33,000 units, a 24% decrease. The average unit sold for around 3 Million Baht and above (for upper level units) or around 26% of the total units. Units costing around 1-3 Million Baht (mid level units) were equal to 64% of the total units and units costing below 1 Million Baht (low level units) were 10% of the total units, based on a total of 64 projects, which is down from 2008 when 92 projects opened. Condominium units with an average sale price of 1-3 Million Baht have the highest competition in the market whereas, the market for units below 1 Million Baht has the fewest number of developers. Among listed companies, only the Company is developing this market. Table comparing new condominium projects that opened between 2004-2009 Sale Price

Annual Report 2009 L.P.N. Development PLC.


Summary of the Real Estate Market in 2009 2009 was the year for large developers with financial capacity and a good reputation among consumers, who succeeded in terms of unit sales in new projects especially listed developers who accounted for 76% of new projects. But based on the first half of the year, the market was down since at the end of 2008 and new condominium projects that opened fell up to 60% compared to the previous year. Most developers rushed to get rid of stock in hand in anticipation of the crisis. In any case, the affect such as lower price of real estate, uncompleted buildings, NPLs for financial institutions and unemployment did not increase as many had feared while at the same time the political situation improved and political violence that started in April ceased quickly. Government stimulus programs helped the confidence index of consumers. By the end of 2009 most large developers started opening new condominium projects in spite the “Dubai World� crisis which did not affect the domestic real estate market directly and there were numerous registrations of ownership of real estate to take advantage of the tax benefits (300,000 Baht tax allowances) which ended at the end of last year. Real Estate Business Forecast for 2010 In 2010, sources including the Company’s research indicate that the economy will recover. Unemployment decreased to 1.1% in November. Unemployment in 2010 should not exceed 2%. However, at the same time, many people are worried about the price of gasoline and its affect on the price of raw materials and inflation, financial institutions being strict with lending practices, fierce competition, political unrest, prolonged political protests and a decision not to extend the real estate stimulus measures that made the market active in March, may see a slow down in the second trimester. The Board of Directors of the Company have plans to grow carefully in 2010 while managing risks and closely monitoring the situation, predicting growth of the Company at 20%. In 2010, in light of various factors such as BOI promotion measures which drives the condominium market with a low sales price, gasoline prices and the popularity of condominiums with mid range prices and the slowing down of new projects to wait and see the situation by many developers in the previous year, all should be factors that allow a large number of condominiums to open in 2010, as long as there are no surprises with the economy and politics more than expected. High priced condominium units in 2010 should be in line with the number seen in 2007, when 50,000-60,000 units were launched and growth should be twice as high as in 2008. Registration of condominium units in 2010, based on information by the R&D Department of the Company, should be approximately 40,000 units which is an increase from 2009 of around 20% with 1-3 Million Baht units taking a 70% share of the market and mostly condominiums launched in 2007-2008 in the Sukhumvit, Ratchada-Rama 9, Paholyothin and Latphrao areas. The price of gasoline is another factor that will influence the growth of the real estate business in addition to competition, economic trouble, social and political problems. Presently, there is a good chance that gasoline prices will increase continually which will affect consumers and may cause inflation as well as affect the price of construction materials. However, gasoline also directly affects the condominium business since many consumers become interested in condominiums in town more than in houses or town houses. So this is an opportunity in 2010. In any case, developers have to be careful of competition, higher costs, economic and political turmoil which will be risks on an ongoing basis.

The status and potential in competition From the beginning, the Company has tried to find new markets with little or no competition (Blue Ocean Strategy) which is the main strategy for competition to maintain return on investment and distributes the customer base in a wide area for a chance to grow in the future, namely, by expanding to locations away from crowded areas around business centers to areas that are densely populated and are on the border between inner city Bangkok and middle Bangkok while at the same time expanding its target group from those with upper mid income to those with mid lower income which encompasses most of the population in Bangkok Metropolis that have a need to find living space but can’t find it from other developers. In addition to looking for new markets by expanding to new locations to develop and expanding the target group of customers the Company is also increasing its ability to compete in order to maintain its market share as follows: 1.1 Cost Leadership, which is the strength of the Company, starting from the board of executives which include architects, engineers with in depth experience and understanding of capital costs as well as strategic partners working with the Company for a long time creating an understanding of the direction of the Company and seeing the same goal of efficient construction which would lead to development on a continual basis and become a novelty which is unique to the Company. 1.2 Differentiation to build satisfaction for customers. The Company chooses to build product differentiation by designing products with “LPN Design” which focuses on building condominium units that are smaller but with functions that satisfy the lifestyle needs of residents in full, need less maintenance, have good air flow which has been designed by the R&D Department on a continual basis and become an example for many companies and has created services differentiation.The Company has emphasized turn key service for maximum satisfaction of customers focusing on after sales services including community management under the strategy “Vibrant Community” that offers quality living for residents.

Risk Factors The Board of Directors of the Company have delegated the executive board to be responsible for the risk of operations in the Company being at acceptable levels and in line with ever-changing circumstances. The risks and management of those risks must be approved by the Board of Directors of the Company and are deemed one of the main factors in the business strategy and plan each year. There is also follow up, control and reporting to the Board of Directors on a regular basis so that it coincides with the strategy and plan set by the Board of Directors of the Company. The Company’s risk management plan is comprised of the following: - Identifying Risk is a step in identifying the risk and related factors that exist both within the country and from overseas and are constantly changing as well as predicting new risks that may arise in the future using information from inside and outside the organization. - Evaluation of Risk and Management of Risk is the stage in which various methods that are appropriate and have the involvement of the Board of Directors of the Company to evaluate the risk efficiently encompassing the risk and the result of the risk while at the same time looking for ways to manage or reduce the risk using accepted methods. - Following Up and Controlling Risk is the stage of following up and reporting on compliance with the plan for managing the risk as approved by the Board of Directors of the Company each trimester. If there are any risks arising that were not foreseen and may affect the business severely, the executive board may revise the plan and goals of the business as well as report the same to the Board of Directors for approval. In 2010, the Company has divided the risks and ways to manage the risk in 4 areas: 1. Financial Risk Even though it appears that in 2010 the crisis will get better and many expect the economy in the country to expand after being in negative numbers for several trimesters, the Company is cautious because the economy in the country and globally is still fragile. Therefore, the Company has set a moderate growth rate, has not over invested and will off load stock in hand as well as avoid financial risk which may affect the business severely while identifying the essential financial risks and ways to manage them as follows: 1.1 The Company’s liquidity Risk Management - managing liquidity (cash flow) of the Company to be appropriate providing that the unencumbered cash flow has to be no less than 500 Million Baht at all times to be confident of carrying on construction of various projects under development until completion using cash flow of the Company. It is the duty of the Company to manage the cash to ensure that the capital cost and interest are not too high so they become a burden on the operations and proceeds decrease to reduce the affect of management of the risk to be at appropriate levels. 1.2 The strict lending practices of financial institutions to individuals Risk Management - Increase sales efficiency by educating customers about financial criteria of the financial institutions who need credit such as matching the price of condominium units with income, what to do while paying the down payment through installments namely, not creating any further debt before the loan is approved, not defaulting on any payments. The Company believes that such management will Annual Report 2009 L.P.N. Development PLC.

63


help reduce the number of rejections for financing by the financial institutions. The sales department also has to keep on selling even though the project is closed to expand the sales base in case some sales are cancelled or the financial institution does not approve the loan. - Increase the efficiency of considering the credit application of customers who want to apply for a loan from financial institutions from the time when the customer wants to reserve the unit and help file the application to the financial institution coordinating between the Company, the customer and the financial institution to maintain or improve the credit rating of the customer to obtain financing from the financial institution. - Managing financial institutions to have the same direction and goals as the Company to reduce the number of rejections for loans as per the strategy of the Company, while also managing the general facility for the project and individual facilities for the benefit of all parties. 2. Strategic Risk Since the Company has a strategy of business being to focus on developing condominiums for customers having middle level income to upper-low level income who need good quality residences. These are the main customers and exist in abundance. This is a good business opportunity and can help the Company grow up to now. However, this is also the source of risk, because if the market changes and effects the “confidence” such as during the financial crisis in 1997 it may cause the Company to suffer in terms of sales and income so the Company has to provide for a way to manage this type of risk as follows: 2.1 Market Confidence Risk Management - Use a strategy of cost per unit to increase sales by relying on the advantage of the Company in managing the capital cost to have efficiency (Cost Leadership) while maintaining value and appropriate revenue - Consider expanding to new locations to develop projects to expand the customer base and cover areas that still need residences with quality at appropriate prices - Consider reducing the number of projects in each location using information from the Company regarding development as tool to make decisions especially for “ground braking projects” which Company uses as “flagships” to expand locations for development to increase the awareness of the “Lumpini” brand - Increase the strength of the management and communication of the “brand” so that it is recognized widely and will support the strategy of expanding to new locations to succeed in developing the Company’s projects successfully - Adapt the strategy of managing customers by improving the building of “relationships” to build “experiences” that will lead to value of the service and will directly affect the “confidence” in the “Lumpini” brand 2.2 Focus Strategy Risk Management - Develop non condominium projects by subsidiaries - Consider expanding to locations to develop projects in provinces where the economy is expanding and there is a need for quality residences at a reasonable price under the “Lumpini” brand

Business Environment Risk It is a well known fact that the business environment changes rapidly and has wide spread effects due to the abundance of information and the transfer of capital that happens fast, speculation by transnational funds, all of which add risk. If the Company is not careful and does not closely follow the situation, over investment and lack of financial discipline may cause the business to encounter problems which may be difficult to solve especially for organizations that are not flexible. In addition, the demand for social rights has become strong especially for developing large scale projects in densely populated areas which take a long time to complete and can not avoid affecting the neighboring community with dust and air pollution and noise . That’s why the Company has a policy to be responsible for the environment and society as one of its dimensions in the strategy of the Company and has provided the method to manage the business environment risk as follows: 3.1 Awareness of Social Rights and the Environment Risk Management - Focusing on the environment and the community around the project being developed starting with selection of the plot of land to develop which has to be appropriate both for economic reasons and social reasons, ready with public utilities, appropriate roads to handle the traffic after opening, having several entrance and exit points to reduce the bottle neck affect all of which will reduce the affect on the environment and the neighboring community according to the Company’s policy to be responsible to the environment and to society. - Providing a team of executives to conduct exercises with the community next to the project to build a good relationship between the company and the community where there may be uncontrolled circumstances occur in order to look for a solution and reduce the affect immediately. 3.2 Political Instability Risk Management - Specify reasonable growth rates for the Company - Manage the Company being flexible and ready to adapt to circumstances at all times using Core Values as the engine - Follow and analyze the situation closely 4. Operational Risks In times of fragile economy and fierce competition, the efficiency of operations is important in making the company able to operate on a continual basis, including sales management and marketing, construction management, community management. If any area lacks efficiency, the business may not succeed so the Company has to provide a role and increase the strength of management of the risk in this area as follows: 4.1 Efficiency in managing marketing, sales and customer service Risk Management -Increase the efficiency of managing costs for marketing by looking for new ways to communicate to reach target groups directly - Improve efficiency of sales personnel and sales teams who are the heart of the sales volumes of the Company - Improve the hand over and registration of the unit to be faster

4.2 Efficiency in Community Management Risk Management - Responsibility towards customers of the Company following handover is the Company’s policy and strategy that is important to the Company and has been developed over time by the Company. In 2010 the Company has specified that the community management division should manage the budget of the juristic person in a transparent and accountable manner as well as managing security in the project so that customers are confident in the “Lumpini” brand. 4.3 Efficiency in Construction Management Risk Management - In 2010 the Company has delegated the construction management division to be even stricter in managing 2 things, firstly, managing the capital costs and secondly managing quality of the product. The goal for projects under construction is to reduce cost of construction such as hidden costs at least 1% while maintaining quality of the product of the Company using an index of the satisfaction of customers about the product which has to be no less than 70% both of which are monitored by the board of executives and the board of directors. 4.4 Efficiency of Cost Management Risk Management - The Company’s forte is cost management which is especially important in affecting the sales price and has allowed the Company to fix a sale price that is lower than its competitors. In 2010, the price of gasoline is expected to rise and effect the price of construction materials making the direct cost higher than expected. The Company has managed this risk by ordering essential materials such as steel, aluminum, glass in advance and agreed on a price that is reasonable for traders in the alliance which will help the Company reduce risk of high cost from the fluctuating cost of construction materials. 4.5 Operations by divisions within the organization Risk Management - In 2009 the Company improved its reprocessing method to be more efficient in handling the crisis. In 2010 the Company will be even more strict in its core operation reprocess from the beginning of the process until completion in order to skip steps or reduce the amount of overlap of each division and increase speed and efficiency of the organization in general. - To control the fixed costs of the company which generally are caused by personnel so the Company has hired a third party contractor to work in some areas that have a minor impact pursuant to standard operating and quality specified by the Company.

Forecast for the Company’s Operations in 2010 For the year 2010, based on information from several forecasts and the Company’s internal information, an economic revival is predicted, including the spending power and the consumer confidence index. At the same time there are many risk factors both in terms of political uncertainty, gasoline prices that are suppose to increase, causing construction materials to be more expensive and inflation, financial institutions being strict with lending practices, increasingly fierce competition, uncertain weather patterns and natural disasters worldwide and the government deciding not to extend measures that stimulated the real estate sector for a short period in March, the sector should become more quiet in the second trimester. The Board of Directors of the Company has therefore made plans for operations in 2010 to grow carefully while at the same time managing risk and monitoring the situation closely, setting the growth of the Company at an estimated 20%. Realized income for the Company this year from sales should be around 9.6 Billion Baht from 6 projects completed this year, namely, Lumpini Ville Bangkhae, Lumpini Place Rama 9-Ratchada, Lumpini CondoTown Ramindra-Nawamin, Lumpini CondoTown Bangkhae, Lumini Ville Ratburana-Riverview and Lumpini Ville Latphrao-Chokechai 4 opened for sale in November 2009. The total value of these 6 projects is 7.73 Billion Baht and at the end of 2009, the Company had sales that was unrealized income in the amount of 10.5 Billion Baht with 7.2 Billion Baht of unrealized income in 2010. The Company has a goal of clearing stock in hand worth around 1.995 Billion Baht at the end of 2009 within the 3rd trimester of 2010 by increasing sales activities and marketing expenses. In order to allay fears that the financial institutions will not grant credit, the Company has established a division to inspect the customers credit in cooperation with the financial institution to reduce the number of customers that are denied credit by financial institutions to be lower than the number in 2009 during which period around 10-12% of applications were denied. The Company has plans to open 6-8 new projects worth a total of 13-15 Billion Baht with a sales target of 13 Billion Baht or growth of around 30% from the previous year in which sales were equal to around 10.8 Billion Baht which will be the income of 2010 and 2011. The Company has already purchased 2 plots of land, namely Lumpini Place Ratchayothin and Lumpini Place Rama 4-Kluaynamthai, scheduled to open on March 20, 2010. Another 2-3 plots of land are being considered for development in the first half of the year as income for 2012. The Company is confident that it can survive under the philosophy of sufficiency economy by being moderate (setting growth targets and profit at appropriate levels), immunity levels (risk management) and being reasonable, such as building quality condominiums in the city which is one of the 4 basic needs of life and the fact that the Company’s customers truly want quality living while at the same time considering a balance of all dimensions with care, under a system of risk management that is part of the business plan based on internal and external information and the experience from facing crisis and relying on methods of management that take into consideration responsibility for the environment and society, equality of all groups of stakeholders under principals of transparency, disclosure and accountability all of which will ensure that the Company grows on a continual basis.

Corporate Income Tax The Company and its subsidiaries recorded all corporate income tax payable in each period as expenses for that period, and calculated income tax in accordance with conditions of the Revenue Code, by making calculation from the revenues realized on the installment dues for the project sales before 2007 and the revenues realized on the percentage of completion for the project sales in 2007 onwards. 13. Use of accounting estimates Preparation of financial statements in conformity with generally accepted accounting principles required the management to make some estimations and assumptions which affect the reported amounts in the financial statements and notes related thereto. Consequently, the actual results may differ from these estimates. Estimates and assumptions that may be susceptible to next year’s accounting adjustment on assets’ value that is carried forward on the date of Balance Sheet is the Reserves for employees retirement benefit plan. The cost of employees pension plan is assessed by the Management. Estimation on this is rather uncertain, due to the longetivity of the plan (Note 3.17.2). Estimation on other matters were disclosed in each pespective sections of the financial statements. 14. Provision for liabilities The Company recognizes a provision for liabilities when an entity has a present legal or constructive obligation as a result of past events. Such an obligation is expected to cause an outflow of economically beneficial resources be required to settle the obligation and reliable estimates can be confidently made of the amount of the obligation. If some or all expenditure required to settle a provision is expected to be reimbursed when the Company settles the obligation, the Company will realize reimbursements as separate assets; but the amount realized should not exceed the amount of the provisions.

The Company has developed condominiums under the LPN Design that focuses on utility for urban living, which is different from products found in general.

This strategy has created confidence and loyalty among the Company’s customers. In addition, the Company has adopted a strategy of low cost management (Cost Leadership Strategy) as a strong point to gain an advantage among competitors and bring success to the Company.

The status and potential in competition From the beginning, the Company has tried to find new markets with little or no competition (Blue Ocean Strategy) which is the main strategy for competition to maintain return on investment and distributes the customer base in a wide area for a chance to grow in the future, namely, by expanding to locations away from crowded areas around business centers to areas that are densely populated and are on the border between inner city Bangkok and middle Bangkok while at the same time expanding its target group from those with upper mid income to those with mid lower income which encompasses most of the population in Bangkok Metropolis that have a need to find living space but can’t find it from other developers. In addition to looking for new markets by expanding to new locations to develop and expanding the target group of customers the Company is also increasing its ability to compete in order to maintain its market share as follows: - Cost Leadership, which is the strength of the Company, starting from the board of executives which include architects, engineers with in depth experience and understanding of capital costs as well as strategic partners working with the Company for a long time creating an understanding of the direction of the Company and seeing the same goal of efficient construction which would lead to development on a continual basis and become a novelty which is unique to the Company. - Differentiation to build satisfaction for customers. The Company chooses to build product differentiation by designing products with “LPN Design” which focuses on building condominium units that are smaller but with functions that satisfy the lifestyle needs of residents in full, need less maintenance, have good air flow which has been designed by the R&D Department on a continual basis and become an example for many Companies and has created services differentiation. The Company has emphasized turn key service for maximum satisfaction of customers focusing on after sales services including community management under the strategy “Vibrant Community” that offers quality living for residents. Provision of Products and Services Procuring Products and Services The main product of the Company is condominium projects aimed at customers having income in the mid-upper to mid-lower bracket who need residences that have quality and reasonable price and are safe and have public utilities and are in locations that are close to public transport or the expressway for convenient travel. In order to coincide with competition, laws and costs that are changing, the Company has plans to develop projects and the various stages as follows: 1.1 Survey the market demands in various areas both in Bangkok and the Surrounding Area as well as in the provinces that are developing economically for use as information in specifying the target locations for expanding the customer base and the area to be developed, focusing on customers with income in the mid-upper to mid-lower bracket with prices between 700,000-2,000,000 Baht as well as surveying the market, competitors, demand, supply, economic and social conditions at that time. 1.2 Analysis of the project, set marketing goals, consider procurement of land and its location, its form, size, surrounding atmosphere, applicable regulations that will affect the project and competitors in order to decide on the size of the project and stages in developing the project as well as the product value, based on the return on investment to coincide with the appropriateness of the location and type of development of the project. 1.3 Laying the plan and designing the project to be appropriate with the studies conducted by selecting an architect and project advisor that has quality and understands the Company’s policy since the designers that are architects and engineers are at the top of the project and have a direct influence on the cost, especially indirect costs such as the ratio of sale area to land which shows efficiency of design. Indirect costs control is one of the areas where the Company shows its cost leadership strategy. 1.4 Provide the project development plan and project financing as well as sales management and marketing plan as well as the community management plan following hand over 1.5 Preparing the personnel and the number of staff necessary to manage the project which is done by subsidiaries from setting the sales team, construction team, ownership transfer team and hand over team as well as the community management team. 1.6 Sales and marketing management includes: - Sales planning which includes setting the sale price, setting the plans for customers together with providing customers with housing loans during ownership transfer considering the financial institutions that will give the highest benefit to customers while at the same time setting sales targets and training sales staff. - Marketing planning which includes planning for advertising to the target group and making the sales documents as well as setting the time and method for opening sales Annual Report 2009 L.P.N.

1.7 Construction management has the following essential stages - Coordinating and providing information on the project to the surrounding neighborhoods and government agencies especially nearby communities that may be affected and be wary of new projects being developed - Procuring the EIA report for approval by the Office of Environmental Policy and Planning and applying for the building permit from the relevant government agencies - Planning for the construction and selecting a contractor to do the construction to complete the project in 18 months (Economy of Speed) from the date of sales begins. The Company has developed construction and technology methods by using precast materials with a subsidiary as construction manager for all stages as per the duties and roles delegated. - Reports on the progress of the construction on a regular basis 1.8 Evaluate and follow up on sales and revenue of the project with a report made for the information and as a case study from the Company for use with other projects 1.9 Management of the community after hand over pursuant to the obligation and responsibility and strategy for “Vibrant Community”. Production Capacity and Volume The Company does not have the direct capacity to produce or volume of production but hires contractors that are allies and have a good reputation and have experience that is appropriate with the project and is responsible for construction with subsidiary company managing the construction closely using a tender system to gauge the best price on a general contractor basis for all the materials and labor costs, in order to reduce the risk of fluctuation in price of construction materials. In addition, the Company has a policy that in tendering, there is no single main contractor, but the tender is for various areas according to the work, namely piling work, structural work, roofing work, glass and aluminum work, electrical work and ME works in order to reduce risk and indirect costs and each contractor must coordinate with each other for speed and quality of construction which must be handed over to customers by the main contractor and the subsidiary and in some cases the Company may purchase materials directly, such as lifts which have a high number and require the supplier to install directly. The entire procedure described above can be done efficiently both in terms of cost and length of time under the strategy of using allies that are strong and can be trusted by the Company which is one of the reasons why the Company has a competitive advantage. Raw Materials As mentioned above, the Company does not have any capacity to produce anything directly and has to depend on contractors in its alliance who are reliable and have experience to build the project to be in charge of construction and are hired to provide materials and labor in order to reduce the risk of fluctuating costs of construction materials. For these reasons, the Company has no necessity to procure raw materials itself. But, the land on which the projects are located are also a raw material that is the most important for development of the project as per the saying “real estate is all about location, location, location”. So the Company has set a guideline to consider acquiring land to develop as follows: The location of the land is in a densely populated location near main roads with all public utilities near places of work or large communities, near public transport or the expressway with convenient entrance and exit and that is not in any land that will be expropriated or have any legal issues or problems with any state project The width of the land and its shape has to coincide with the Building Control Act for maximum benefit and has to coincide with the regulations of land use under town planning regulations The price of the land has to be within a price range that is no more than 30% of the project cost so that the Company can maintain the sales price and return on the investment according to the policy and strategy of competition by the Company. Looking for land by advertising in the newspaper to contact the owner directly without using an agent or offering to purchase from a financial institution or the AMC and the Company has a team that is directly responsible for finding and inspecting the qualifications of the land directly and the Company has disclosed this information to the SET when land is acquired for transparency and the land is valued by an independent appraiser again allowing all of the land purchased by the Company to be lower than the appraised price.
