According to our calculations, the company’s same-store growth rate in 2018 was about 25%. The rapid growth of the company’s revenue was mainly due to: 1.

The company implements the “location adjustment, expansion of area” transformation plan for existing stores to increase the profitability of single stores when the cost of single stores is relatively stable (we estimate that the effectiveness of directly operated stores is around 4 million);

2. The brand positioning is “three highs and one new”, supplemented by top-grade fabrics and exquisite design, thousands of SKUs provide a certain choice, and high-quality products are popular;

Store operation management is solid, the information system is strengthened, the VIP system is comprehensive, the contribution rate is as high as 60% +, and all-round store staff training is effective in maintaining long-term customer relationships and has a strong repurchase momentum.

Inventory turnover trend, overall operation is healthy.

3 trillion, continuing the high growth rate, we expect same-store growth of 15% + in the first quarter of 2019.

In 2019, the company’s main brand Biylefen developed steadily while expanding its new brand, Venice.

Venice positioning mid-range vacation travel series (price increase 4?
6 times). In 2018, there were about 40 trial operation stores, and the market responded well. We judge that the speed of the main brand expansion in 2019 is comparable to that in 2018, and Venice will open 30?
More than 40 companies are expected to become follow-up forces of scale growth.
