Management Commentary

 

Mr. Xinrong Zhuo, Chairman and CEO of the Company, commented, “We were pleased to host the investors at our headquarters in Fuzhou. The participants’ ideas and advice provided good insight into our fishing process and our day-to-day operations. We continue to focus on seeking new fishing grounds and new markets while exploring effective ways of integrating technology in Pingtan’s operations. Pingtan plans to establish an e-commerce exchange platform in Shenzhen during the second half of 2017, which we expect will help improve the entire value chain from the deep sea fishing operation to sale to end customers. We look forward to hosting such investor and analyst day events in the future and maintaining an open dialogue with all existing and potential shareholders.”
