CMGE’s (0302.HK) seven-fold growth in international revenues: an emerging growth engine

Tag Template - News Hub PRO CoinGenius Hosts Virtual Crypto Event The Road To Mass Adoption

HONG KONG, Apr 13, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - Despite regulation and a suspension of new game licenses in China, CMGE (0302.HK) grossed RMB3,957 million in 2021, representing a year-on-year increase of 3.6%, according to its 2021 annual earnings report. The company's gross profit margin increased to 37.2% in 2021 from 32.0% in 2020, while gross profit totaled RMB1,473 million, a year-on-year increase of 20.5%.

Jian Xiao, Executive Director, Chairman and CEO of CMGE, stated at the Performance Meeting that several games to be released in 2021 had been delayed due to the failure of achieving the game license as scheduled, as well as greater contributions to development and research, caused 2021 adjusted net margin to decline by 21.9%

With strong performance in 2020, CMGE's performance in 2021 is virtually superior to that of most peer companies.

01. The company's games have achieved international success with a year-on-year international game publishing revenue increasing by 7,260%, and another growth engine emerges.

CMGE's financial statements show that its profits are essentially sourced from developing and operating IP-based games, RMB905 million of which is sourced from the profits of its game development, representing a year-on-year increase of 23.9% and accounting for 22.9% of its annual business revenues, and RMB232 million of which is sourced from the profits of its IP licensing, doubled over the last year, representing a year-on-year increase of 106.9%, showing the abundant IP reserves and outstanding performance of its self-development strategy.

It's noteworthy that CMGE gained revenue of RMB459 million overseas, a year-on-year increase of 72 times. With this growth, its international revenue increased to 11.6% in 2021 from 0.2% in 2020, sharply representing the great progress from its overseas strategy of games.

According to an insider, it's inevitable for domestic game developers to make a breakthrough by surviving on international markets under the more serious regulation. Also, to survive on international markets, the company is facing challenges in all aspects such as the research and development of products, operation, marketing and organization. To survive on international markets has become a key indicator to measure whether a game developer is of competence.

At the Performance Meeting, Jian Xiao stated that CMGE, having committed to international game markets, has provided multiple games products in Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan, Southeastern Asia, Europe and America and has created professional localization teams in products operation, marketing, user service and advertising. With the success of several products in practice, the international markets will be further developed, the revenue of which will also be increasing.

02. The company has laid a strong foundation for challenges with a year-on-year contribution increase of 48.9% in R&D for core competence of excellent self-developed products.

The research and development is a must for excellent products, and CMGE's financial statements shows that it has been committed to the research and development. As indicated by a set of data, CMGE has a R&D team of 624 professionals by the end of the period, representing a year-on-year increase of 30.0%; its contributions to the R&D are increased from RMB208.6 million in 2020 to RMB310.7 million in 2021, representing a year-on-year increase of 48.9% and accounting for 7.9% of the corporate revenue.

CMGE has also invested in great game developers to develop game business. According to the financial statements, CMGE has invested in over 20 game developers directly or by convertible bonds in recent years.

With its investment, merger and self-development, CMGE's R&D has become mature gradually with five major game types - numerical games, platform games, strategy games, E-sports games and card games, and several new R&D studios and subsidiaries have also been established.

In the long run, the enhanced R&D will lay a strong foundation for the continuous development of products for a game company.

Jiao Xiao believes that as the game industry has been more and more limited and regulated, the game companies must pay more attention to high-quality, multi-platform and long-cycle products and gain profits of one game from multiple platforms. Also, the companies need to attract more loyal customers and enhance user stickiness by the worldview and IP of games, social function and other factors.

Driven by technologies, the game developers should develop more quality products to meet new demands of gamers. The game "Sword and Fairy: World" self-developed by CMGE to be released is a model one.

"Sword and Fairy: World", based on the worldview and IP of "Sword and Fairy", is an immersive open-world RPG where gamers are provided with great freedom to make choices. The game is available on multiple devices including PC, console, mobile phone and VR. The game art meets the VR standard to offer the best immersive experience for gamers. CMGE expects that "Sword and Fairy: World" will be developed into a bestselling strategy game with an annual revenue of over RMB3,000 billion, a high profit ratio and a long life cycle.

03. The company expects a promising future as the returns of self-developed products in international markets will begin after significant games are released.

Next, CMGE is going to release a series of self-developed products and further promote its international markets strategy to earn more reputation among international gamers.

CMGE is scheduled to release several new games with license in the first half of 2022, including "A New Record of a Mortal's Journey to Immortality", "Ultraman: Assembly" and "All Star Fight" that were released this January.

In addition, CMGE is also looking forward to the license of several major new games including "Sword and Fairy: Wen Qing", "Rakshasa Street: Chosen One", "Cultivation Fantasy" and "Daily Life of Group Chat".

As for the expected time when the license will be granted, Jian Xiao holds the view that the reason why the authority has stopped granting game licenses is essentially related to the improvement and review of the game protection system for the minors. In the long run, the government will still support the healthy development of game industry.

In addition, the key product "Sword and Fairy: World" is about to undergo the first test in August 2022 and to be released around the middle of 2023. And the E-sports game "Code: Basketball 3V3" developed by Shanghai Zhoujing will be tested by the end of 2022 and released around the middle of 2023.

At the Performance Meeting, Jian Xiao stated that considering the status quo, the company's R&D will truly pay off in 2023 with a target that the revenue of independent R&D business accounts for 40% or even more of the total revenue in 2023.

Cyber Yachts Presents the World’s Most Expensive NFT

Tag Template - News Hub PRO CoinGenius Hosts Virtual Crypto Event The Road To Mass Adoption

MIAMI, FL, Apr 9, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - Cyber Yachts, the world's first metaverse yacht company, a division of Monsoon Blockchain Corporation, is announcing the world's most expensive NFT - a 120 meter (394 foot) mega yacht named "Indah," priced at $400,000,000 USD (Indah can be purchased in Ethereum (ETH), Bitcoin (BTC) and Bitcoin Latinum (LTNM)). In addition to the NFT, the buyer will also receive the real-world, fully constructed 394 foot mega yacht based on the same design, built by one of the world's most respected luxury yacht shipbuilders.

Tag Template - News Hub PRO CoinGenius Hosts Virtual Crypto Event The Road To Mass Adoption

The project is a collaboration between Cyber Yachts and internationally renowned yacht designer Lukasz Opalinski of Opalinski Design House. Opalinski's clients include Italian shipbuilding company Benetti and Netherlands-based yacht builder, Oceanco. Mentored by distinguished mega yacht captain and naval expert John Henson, Opalinski won the New Designer of The Year award in 2005 and 2006 from London's famed New Designers Show. Opalinski's yacht design presentation for "Project Magnitude" garnered 9.5 million views on YouTube.

"Passion for "being on the water" is what drives my emotions into the creation of extraordinary vessels, that are designed to set new industry standards and bring new dimensions to the yachting experience. Form and function exist in simultaneous harmony," stated Opalinski.

The Indah, which means "beautiful one" in Indonesian, features a revolutionary, patented design concept, where the transom bulkheads (the sides of the boat at the stern) rotate outwards, revealing additional deck space that nearly doubles the size of the conventional swim platform, creating a sprawling beach club effect as the platform lowers to meet the water.

The mega yacht can accommodate a total of 24 guests across 12 cabins, and can fly across the water at a top speed of 24 knots, with a range of 7,000 nautical miles. Other features include a helicopter landing pad, a massive 5,500 GT interior, casino room, gym, sauna, private owner's suite with dedicated aft deck balcony, and a foredeck hot tub with sunbeds and retractable sunshade.

Cyber Yachts was founded in partnership with three time Grammy-nominated recording artist Quavo of the platinum selling group Migos. Quavo recently joined Justin Bieber's star-studded Justice Tour, and is now a featured character in the popular game NBA 2k22.

Cyber Yachts is building a luxury event and online gaming metaverse of yachts, celebrities, rockstars, island hopping, and a vast ocean of destination playgrounds. At the heart of the experience will be the SuperYacht, each unique and designed specially for its own mega rockstar, celebrity, or luxury brands captain. Cyber Yachts intends to offer users, through tickets and VIP passes, experiential curated events, performances, gaming quests, luxury digital goods and social fun.

Market research firms have projected the global yacht market to hit $8.5 billion in 2021, up from $8.15 billion in 2020, and it is estimated to reach $12.16 billion by 2028. During the pandemic, the number of billionaires in the world climbed from 2,095 to 2,755 and their cumulative wealth increased by 60 percent, or $5 trillion.

The metaverse has been gaining significant popularity and value in the past year, with a major increase of companies and celebrities buying plots of virtual "land" in The Sandbox and Decentraland, allowing them to digitally market, raise awareness and extend their brands. Several major global investment banks have predicted that the metaverse could be an $8 trillion market opportunity.

Cyber Yachts is positioning itself well in a lucrative NFT market. Another major bank recently increased its market-cap forecast for the NFT market to $80 billion by 2050, with double digit growth for the next five years. One major NFT company recently raised $450 million from leading venture capital firms, valuing the company at $4 billion. This marked one of the largest seed rounds for any NFT collection to date.

OTT Summit Ends with Much Optimism for Growth in Asia and a Strong Focus on Content and the Consumer

Tag Template - News Hub PRO CoinGenius Hosts Virtual Crypto Event The Road To Mass Adoption

Singapore, Apr 6, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - The Asia Video Industry Association (AVIA) hosted over 850 delegates and featured over 80 industry leaders at the recent OTT Summit, with conversations revolving a lot on the subject of growth, from subscriber and revenue growth to increased local content investment and an intense focus on the customer.

In discussing the outlook for the video industry in Asia, Vivek Couto, Executive Director and Co-Founder of Media Partners Asia (MPA), indicated there remained a lot of room for growth. With most markets having an SVOD household penetration of less than 50%, there was certainly an upside for Southeast Asia and some parts of North Asia as well. However, while the region remained bullish on growth, the Average Revenue Per User remained low, particularly in the Philippines, Thailand, Indonesia, and India. As such, some tiers and price increases would be introduced along the way, especially when premium sport started to be added to the platforms.

The adage of "Content is King" was very much heard throughout the summit. In MPA's review of share of first-title consumption, premium local content was a key driver for customer acquisition, particularly in Indonesia and Thailand, with local content that showed some travelability, and as expected, with Korean content traveling very well, and some Japanese content as well.

This focus on content continued through to the fireside chat with Catherine Park, SVP, Head of Office & Streaming for Asia, Paramount Global, where she reiterated that their "mission is to unleash the power of the content with the belief that content is king." With different go-to-market strategies to unlock maximum value, Paramount Plus planned to launch first in Korea with CJ ENM, then Japan as the next market followed by Southeast Asia in 2023. Park also shared Paramount's "glocal" strategy - to have global vision but with local execution.

The importance of being local was also echoed by many panellists, as Asia could not be seen as one homogenous market. Sagar Pandit, Associate Director, Business Development, Asia Pacific, Discovery, Inc., said, "When you gun for growth, especially in Asia, it's about tailoring your approach for every region but keeping your consumer at the front and centre of whatever you are doing."

And with increasing fragmentation in Asia, customer obsession became a key part of the strategy, as more platforms leveraged technology to deliver personalised experiences. For Parminder Singh, Chief Commercial and Digital Officer, Mediacorp, the three things a customer looked for were highly personalized and relevant content, and new virtual interactive experiences, all built into one single experience, with the use of technology that would allow you to bring all of this to the customer. "If you are only delivering a straightforward service, you are going to be left behind," added Akash Saxena, Head of Technology, Disney+ Hotstar India.

However, the challenge to integrate it all into an operator's platform for a seamless experience very much remained, calling for perhaps greater aggregation and bundling for the OTT industry, as we started to see some fatigue from consumers working with multiple services to meet their content needs.

Closing off the summit with Bold Predictions for the Future of Streaming, Gourav Rakshit, COO, Viacom18 Digital Ventures, remained very optimistic, sharing that a large bet that platforms had not fully capitalised on was the area of media becoming social, with the opportunity to build communities. "We've really made rapid strides in the last five years . . . the next five will be focusing a lot more on delivering consumer delight," said Rakshit.

The OTT Summit is generously supported by Gold Sponsors Brightcove, Lumen Technologies, Synamedia, TV5MONDE, Xandr and Silver Sponsors Akamai, Amagi, Broadpeak, BytePlus, Discovery, Encoding.com, Endeavor Streaming, Irdeto, Magnite, Mediacorp, Mirada, NAGRA, Nielsen, PubMatic and Vindicia.

What next for the continent?

Enterprises and governments are stepping up strengthening internet infrastructure and improving the solutions and assistance provided by the software industry in order to protect their citizens from future cyber-attacks.

Apart from that, factors such as the need for unified cyber solutions, increased internet subscriptions, data disclosure mandates, enhanced enterprise mobility, and increased spending patterns on security forums are fueling the nation's demand for cyber security solutions.

"The economic well-being of ASEAN nations is becoming increasingly dependent on the digital realm. Governments can protect their economies and citizens by implementing appropriate digital security protocols," stated Mithun Shetty, CEO, Trescon.

Cylum Launches Highest APY Staking Reward in the Crypto Space

London, UK, Apr 1, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - Cylum Finance, a DeFi 3.0 platform, has launched the highest APY staking reward in the crypto industry. Over the years, crypto investors and traders have staked their assets for relatively average returns. Although these investors earned interest on their staked crypto assets, there is huge room for improvement. Offering an increase in APY for staked assets will undoubtedly incentive more investors to enter the market.

Tag Template - News Hub PRO CoinGenius Hosts Virtual Crypto Event The Road To Mass Adoption

The mission of the Cylum project is to give crypto investors a more profitable reason to stake their assets on its platform.

Cylum Highest APY Reward

Cylum offers up to 395,677% APY within the first year for investors who hold the $CYM token. Since the history of crypto staking, no project has offered investors such high returns on their investment. The unique smart contract that powers Cylum's APY leverages compound interest in its reward system. As a result, all investors earn rewards every minute of the day with Cylum. The team plans to increase the earnings of investors with the launch of the mainnet offering. The mainnet also has a multi-chain decentralized application (Dapp) developed to offer users more utility within the ecosystem.

Cylum Unique Features & Uses

  • Auto-Staking & Compounding

In most existing DeFi projects, token holders have to stake their crypto assets manually. With Cylum's auto-staking and compounding, it is entirely different. Every process is automated and designed to favor investors. By purchasing and holding these tokens, investors earn active rewards directly to their respective wallets.

After the annual compound interest of 395,677% within the first year, the APY will begin to decrease.

  • Automatic-Burn

To reduce the number of $CYM in total supply and drive up the value of each token, the team is looking to make $CYM a deflationary token. With auto-burn, the team will make the token more valuable as a result of the decrease in supply and increased demand. The auto-burn feature is an algorithm created to automatically eliminate 2% of the $CYM token total supply once it is launched.

About Cylum Finance

Cylum is a DeFi 3.0 project launched to revolutionize crypto staking and reward system. Skilled developers created it with unique code. The project operates an amazing set of mechanics that ensures the protocol remains sustainable. The team also incorporated additional unique features that confer a competitive advantage on the project. Crypto staking has become one of the top ways investors make money from the market. A great platform like Cylum is essential to attracting more players to this sector of the crypto market.

The Cylum protocol serves as a launchpad for metaverse projects deployed on the Binance Smart Chain (BSC). In addition, its cylinder insurance fund ensures it is low risk with high rewards for investors.

InvesTech Holdings Announces 2021 Annual Results

Tag Template - News Hub PRO CoinGenius Hosts Virtual Crypto Event The Road To Mass Adoption

HONG KONG, Apr 1, 2022 - (ACN Newswire) - InvesTech Holdings Limited ("InvesTech Holdings", together with its subsidiaries, the "Group"; stock code: 1087.HK), a leading integrated smart IT solutions provider in China, announces its audited consolidated results for the year ended 31 December 2021 (the "Year").

During the Year, the Group continued to focus on its core business of the IT infrastructure system integration and the sales of smart office software solutions, with the majority of its revenue generating from the market in the People's Republic of China (the "PRC" or "China"). With operations gradually resuming normal in particular in the first half of the Year while capturing the surging demand in the market, the Group grew its sales considerably. During the Year, the Group's total revenue remained steady with a slight increase of approximately 3.3% to approximately RMB484.6 million (2020: approximately RMB469.1 million). Yet, certain deliveries were deferred due to late deliveries of goods by suppliers and urban lockdowns, which in turn led to a delay in the recognition of revenue, in addition, a sizable government contract was concluded during the Year, resulting in a 340.3% increase in total contracted sales backlog to approximately RMB802.9 million as compared to that of 2020. The Group's gross profit increased by approximately 11.3% to approximately RMB57.1 million (2020: approximately RMB51.3 million), broadly in line with revenue growth. Net loss for the year substantially narrowed to RMB21.0 million from the loss of RMB86.7 million in last year, mainly attributable to the absence of the recognition of an impairment of loan receivables and the impairment of goodwill in relation to the network system integration cash-generating unit for the Year.

Mr. Ringo Chan, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of InvesTech Holdings, said, "Thanks to the favourable national policies, investment in IT-related industries began to soar. Meanwhile, the market for smart office solutions has seen explosive growth as companies have rushed to adapt to restrictions imposed to control the COVID-19 (the "pandemic"). During the Year, leveraging robust demand for IT infrastructure system integration and smart office software solution services in the Chinese market, the Group spared no effort to enhance its business development and achieved business growth."

Business Review
IT Infrastructure System Integration Business
The Group continued to expedite the development of its traditional IT infrastructure system integration business, which remained a major source of revenue during the Year. Leveraging its solid foundations in the industry and strong customer relationships, the Group's revenue from the IT infrastructure system integration segment increased by approximately 0.4% to approximately RMB448.6 million for the Year. In addition to strengthening its core competitiveness in the provision of a wide range of products and services through the traditional IT infrastructure system integration business, the Group also joined forces with various tech giants, with the aim of acquiring new clients through strategic alliances to deliver cutting-edge IT infrastructure solutions.

Smart Office Software Solutions Business
As office closures and work-from-home arrangements were adopted across various industries during the Year, demand surged for the Group's smart office software solutions and property technology ("PropTech") solutions, which operate with Internet of Things (IoT) technology. The number of orders for, and sales of, smart office software solutions increased significantly, delivering revenue growth of approximately 60.7% to approximately RMB36.0 million for the Year. During the Year, the Group also allocated more resources on its research and development team and centre located in Xi'an, the PRC. To further capture market opportunities, the Group will expand the scope of its services and continue to upgrade Virsical, its flagship smart office software solutions product.

Contract Awarded to the Group - Hong Kong Smart Library System Project
In September 2021, a government contract for the provision of a smart library system for the Hong Kong government's Leisure and Cultural Services Department with contract sum of approximately HK$693.1 million was awarded to an unincorporated joint venture, which was formed by the Group in proportion to the contribution of 70%. The project involves the design, supply, delivery, installation, commissioning, implementation, system support and maintenance of core library systems, alongside the provision of other services. The estimated project duration is from September 2021 to March 2026, with a warranty and maintenance period running until March 2036.

Domestic vaccine innovation and iteration accelerated by novel adjuvant technology

Vaccines are praised as the "golden track" in the medical health field. According to the Frost & Sullivan report, from 2016 to 2020, the size of the global vaccine market has increased from US$27.5 million to US$39.9 billion at a CAGR of 9.7%, while the CAGR of global pharmaceutical market was only 3.02%. China has become the second largest vaccine market globally, with the market volume increased from RMB27.1 billion in 2016 to RMB75.3 billion in 2020 at a CAGR of 29.1%.

Regarding the insufficient domestic supply of and the unmet urgent demand for novel vaccines, it has become an important part of the Development Planning of the Pharmaceutical Industry in the "14th Five-Year Plan" in China (referred as the "Plan") to promote enterprises to speed up the development of related products and to achieve product availability as soon as possible. Regarding the development of the vaccine industry, the "Plan" also states that research and development of novel vaccines (such as novel adjuvants for vaccines and mRNA vaccines) and building of industrialization capability shall be accelerated. It also emphasizes on the development of novel COVID-19 vaccines, herpes vaccines, polyvalent human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccines and other products.

As an innovative novel vaccine company, Recbio has constructed the three core technology platforms consisting of novel adjuvants, protein engineering and immunological evaluation, forming synergy in antigen design and optimization, adjuvant development and production, identification of the best combination of antigen and adjuvants. The Company has built a comprehensive and high-valued vaccine portfolio consisting of 12 candidates, covering cervical cancer, COVID-19, adult tuberculosis, shingles, HFMD, influenza etc. It covers five of the ten diseases with the greatest burden under the 2019 Global Burden of Diseases issued by the World Health Organization and disease areas of the three of the top five globally bestselling vaccine products in 2020.

Novel adjuvant for vaccines is the "bottleneck" technology of innovative vaccines. Through years of technical research, Recbio has successfully achieved independent control of all FDA-approved novel adjuvants, and is one of the few companies in the world capable of independent development of novel adjuvants. It has also successfully applied in various innovative vaccines such as COVID-19 vaccines, HPV vaccines and shingles vaccines.

A moat constructed with a rich product portfolio

HPV vaccines are one of the most commercially valuable vaccines in the world. It is expected that there will be 234 million females in China aged 9-45 unvaccinated for HPV in 2025 assuming 3 doses per person, requiring additional 702 million doses. Currently, Recbio has formed a full coverage of bivalent, quadrivalent and 9-valent vaccines and novel adjuvant upgrades in the field of HPV vaccines. The core product REC603, a recombinant HPV 9-valent vaccine is currently under phase III clinical trial, expected to become the first approved domestic HPV 9-valent vaccine. Regarding the global immunization program market, REC601, a bivalent vaccine has the potential to become one of the most popular vaccine options. At the same time, the Company is also in the process of developing second-generation HPV vaccines, namely REC604a (a quadrivalent vaccine) and REC604b (a 9-valent vaccine). Both vaccines have adopted our self-developed novel adjuvants and are expected to achieve two-shot regimens in the future. The construction of the first phase of the HPV manufacturing facility of Recbio is expected to be completed by the end of this year. By then, it will realize the designed capacity of five million doses of HPV 9-valent vaccines or 30 million doses of HPV bivalent vaccines per year. As the first cancer preventive vaccine in the world, HPV vaccines have been in shortage for a long time. With the gradual release of domestic HPV vaccines in the future and the gradual release of production capacity, domestic substitution will be accelerated.

Protein engineering, novel adjuvant and other technology are comprehensively used in ReCOV, the COVID-19 vaccine of Recbio, to thoroughly optimize the vaccine, allowing ReCOV to possess a series of comprehensive advantages, including excellent safety, strong immunogenicity, strong cross-protection effectiveness with Omicron and Delta mutant strains, easy-to-scale-up production, low production cost, high preparation stability, storage and transportation in room temperature etc. The international phase II/III clinical trials of such vaccine are currently in progress. EUA/BLA applications are estimated to be submitted in 2022. On the side of production supply, the Company has completed the construction of our GMP-standard manufacturing facility for ReCOV and obtained the drug production license in November 2021. The manufacturing facility has a total GFA of approximately 17,000 sq.m., has the potential to support an annual manufacturing capacity of 300 million doses of ReCOV and can be used to manufacture recombinant shingles vaccines.

In the field of shingles vaccines, shingles virus is dormant in almost all adults over 50 of age in China, affecting approximately 2.5 million adults in China every year. However, Shingrix is currently the only shingles vaccine approved in China. The novel adjuvant which benchmarking AS01 is adopted in REC610 of the Company, significantly improving vaccine immunogenicity, hoping to achieve domestic substitution quickly.

Recogen, our subsidiary has first achieved technology breakthrough in lyophilized mRNA vaccines. It has applied the self-developed freeze-drying technology to achieve preparation stability at 4 degrees Celsius and 25 degrees Celsius, allowing storage and transportation under general cold-chain conditions, effectively solving the current defect in availability of mRNA vaccines.

"We are glad that the Hong Kong stock IPO has been highly recognized by the capital market. The successful listing of Recbio is expected to bring more confidence to the Hong Kong 18A stock market. Thanks to all the investors for their strong support, we were able to successfully go public as originally planned in such extremely depressed environment of the Hong Kong capital market!" Regarding the listing of Recbio in Hong Kong, Dr. Liu Yong, the Founder, Chairman of the Board, and General Manager of Recbio stated that, "Against the backdrop of a huge global demand for innovative vaccines in this era, through continuous innovation and international cooperation, we will accelerate the commercialization of products in the global market, promote innovation in the entire value chain of the vaccine industry from R&D to commercialization, and create greater value for shareholders and investors. Today is the beginning of a brand-new journey for Recbio. I hope that all investors will continue to support our Company. Let's hope we will continue to move forward hand in hand, through the sweltering summer and winter, and create new glory together!"
