Sinopec Shanghai Petrochemical Company Limited announced the unaudited operating results of the Company and its subsidiaries prepared under International Financial Reporting Standards for the six months ended June 30, 2011.

According to IFRS, turnover of the Group for the Period amounted to RMB49,500.8 million, representing an increase of 37.01% over the previous year. Profit attributable to equity shareholders of the Company amounted to RMB1,425.7 million (2010 interim: RMB1,513.7 million). Basic earnings per share was RMB0.198 (2010 interim: RMB0.210).

Mr. Rong Guangdao, Chairman of Shanghai Petrochemical, said, "In the first half of 2011, the Chinese economy continued to maintain stable and relatively fast growth, while China's petrochemical industry continued to maintain a healthy and steady operation. However, international crude oil prices surged significantly and stayed at high levels, and the profitability of the oil refining industry declined substantially, resulting in a turnaround from profits to losses.”

“Coping with external market changes with a proactive approach, the Company continued to increase total physical production volume of products, and made every effort to push forward various tasks on production, operation, reform and development. During the Period, crude oil processing volume and outputs of gasoline, diesel, jet fuel, synthetic resin & plastics and other products reached record highs once again as compared to previous corresponding periods. The natural gas comprehensive utilization project reaped good economic benefits."
