The company’s main down apparel business GMV has grown faster than we expected. Under
the influence of the epidemic at the beginning of the year, potential problems such as
inventory backlogs have made us more reserved for the company’s annual revenue. However,
many places across the country entered the winter earlier this year, and the company’s
discount management controlled appropriately, the adverse effects of the epidemic have
been digested in the first half of the fiscal year. In the Q3, the growth rate was significantly
higher than that in the 1H21. The company’s interim performance report showed that
Bosideng/other brand down jacket revenue growth rates in the 1H of the fiscal year were
19.7%/ 2.58%. Based on this calculation, the company’s revenue growth rate from down
jackets in the Q3 increased significantly.
