relationship with Luk Fook. With Luk Fook’s rich operational experience and
extensive network, we are optimistic that powerful synergies will be
generated, leading to a more rapid enhancement of ‘3D-GOLD’ brand position and
“Despite the macro-economy and consumption sentiment remaining lackluster, we
believe there is still room for growth for our retail networks in Hong Kong,
Macau and the PRC. We will continue to expand the retail network of ‘3D-GOLD’
in Hong Kong and Macau with the intention to open five new shops across both
areas within this year. As for the PRC market, building on the foundation of
its well-established retail network, ‘3D-GOLD’ will continue to invest more
resources to expand by franchise. While enlarging the coverage in China's
first-tier cities, we will also extend and accelerate our penetration in the
second- and third-tier cities. We have set the target expansion rate of our
branded shops at 15% per year.
“Moving forward, we will continue to devote resources to bolstering existing
businesses and we look forward to achieving mutually beneficial results with
Luk Fook, in turn, creating greater value for HKRH and delivering better
returns to our shareholders and investors.”
