Mr. Zhang Zhiyong, CEO,
President and Executive Director of China Dongxiang
, said, “Market competition has been intensified since the outbreak of
COVID-19. We anticipate that there will be a year-on-year volume growth
in sports apparel and equipment industry this year, though selling prices will be under
pressure. Entering the third year of ‘direct-franchise’ model reform for Kappa brand, the Group’s inventory level is expected to decline. By implementing such business reforms, the
market share of Kappa brand has been maintained during the period. In addition, our management has improved and implemented localised strategies
for the sales teams in an orderly manner, while driving reforms and
construction of  the product team, with an aim to enhance core competitiveness of the brand. We will continue to closely monitor the changes of
the pandemic, strengthening supervision and control over our operations, in order to minimise the negative impacts brought by the pandemic,
protecting the Group’s value and shareholders’ interests.”
