FINANCE INCOME Income increased dramatically from $2.9m to $51.3m in 2012-2013. This was mainly due to a significant increase in donations and matching grants received ($41.4m). As the investment market steadily picked up, investment return recorded a gain of $6.8m (as compared to last yearâ€™s loss of $0.8m). Government
subvention declined by just $53,000 reflecting a 1.9% decrease. Owing to change of basis of preparation for the financial reporting by the University, payout from the endowed capital would not be treated as income from 2012-2013 onwards.

EXPENDITURE Expenditure in total increased 32.5% over the past year, from $6.3m to $8.4m. The increase in expenditure was mainly due to the granting of more scholarships and financial aid (from $1.2m to $1.7m, 42% increase over that of last year), a $1.5m increase in College operation expenditure as more College
events were organized, and around $0.8m spent on the organization of the Distinguished Visitors Programme and College Branding Development.
