“Seven Principles” Yields Fruitful Results; “FourPillars-Braced” Initiatives Advance in Tandem

Mr. Wu Xiangdong, Founder and Chairman of ZJLD Group, delivered a welcome address to the attending shareholders. Mr. Wu reviewed the Company’s operating achievements over the past year and shared the Company’s future development direction, saying, “I have witnessed multiple industry cycles in the baijiu sector for the last 30 years, even though the industry is facing many uncertainties and challenges this year, Baijiu being rooted in traditional Chinese culture and deeply embedded in the daily lives of the Chinese people – the entire industry is imbued with resilience. Difficulties and opportunities coexist; the difficulties the industry is currently facing also mean restructuring and reshuffling opportunities for brands like Zhen Jiu and Li Du, which have been steadfastly developing with solid business foundations. We persist in focusing on a differentiation development strategy and resolve any difficulties ahead while at the same time realizing and capitalizing hidden opportunities within the challenges.”

Moving forward, the Company will continue to focus on four areas – brand development, production capacity expansion, channels and team building. While consolidating its leading position in the baijiu industry, the Company will further strive to improve profitability and enhance its resilience to respond to future market challenges. In terms of production capacity, Zhen Jiu has already achieved 40,000 tons this year, and its base liquor inventory is expected to exceed 100,000 tons. Additionally, the Group will further broaden the product lines of its different sub-brands across various price ranges:

  • Zhen Jiu plans to launch banquet products in the sub-high-end price range and upgrade its Zhen 30 and Zhen 15 series in the second half of the year.
  • Li Du will establish two major products matrix – the flagship “Li Du Gaoliang” and the “Li Du Wang” series. The high-end Li Du Gaoliang 1308, priced over RMB1,000, is aimed at the nationwide layout, supplemented by 1955 in the RMB800 category and the sub-high-end 1975, for incremental expansion within different price ranges.
  • Xiangjiao will focus on the “enhancing distributor network” strategy to improve distributor quality, establish experience centers, and strengthen experiential marketing to drive channel penetration and enhancement.
