Management Commentary

Mr. Xinrong Zhuo, Chairman and CEO of the Company, commented: “Our products have been launched on JD.com to reach end-consumers directly. This success is the result of months of hard work of both teams, and also demonstrates Pingtan’s entry into the deep processing sector and our determination to present deep-ocean natural products to consumers across China. Our partnership with JD.com bypassed layers of intermediaries, which is expected to increase our revenue and at the same time significantly reduce JD’s procurement cost, and ultimately benefit consumers with high quality deep-ocean products at favorable prices. We anticipate that the upcoming selling season for the Spring Festival will stimulate sales so that the Company will be able to present good sales performance.”
