Trading Update

 

Further to the announcement of 21 September 2015, the Company has been working closely with the local Administration of Industry and Commerce (the "AIC") in order to ensure that its client websites are fully compliant so that the suspension of operations can be lifted.  A team from the AIC visited the Company during the course of last week in order to review the Company's revised control procedures.  The Company expects to be informed of the results of the inspection very shortly. The Company's operations are planned to restart once the AIC gives its go-ahead.

A further announcement will be made in due course.

About JQW plc

 

JQW is a leading domestic business-to-business e-commerce provider based in the Chinese province of Jiangsu.  The Group's core business is its online B2B platform, www.jqw.com, which has been developed to encourage domestic trade by connecting Chinese SMEs with potential trade partners.  Founded in 2004, the platform was developed to help to market Chinese SME's websites.  JQW has evolved rapidly to become one of the top three B2B e-commerce website in China in terms of traffic and operates, what the Director's believe to be, the first dedicated B2B search engine, www.jqw.cn

 

JQW offers a low-cost entry point for Chinese SMEs to promote themselves and their B2B products to potential buyers.  In order to increase transaction opportunities, JQW offers its clients a broad range of services including website design, commercial search services and advertising. 

 

There are approximately 50 million SMEs in China manufacturing a diverse range of products, accounting for 60% of the country's GDP.  The number of mobile internet-access users in China stood at 871 million at September 2014 and investment in the country's telecommunications infrastructure continues to accelerate.  These factors have driven an increased demand for domestic trade of B2B, B2C and C2C e-commerce.  With the majority of these SMEs requiring the use of third party B2B e-commerce platforms to promote their businesses and access trade partners, the Board believes that JQW offers a robust and highly reputable branded platform.  With exposure in over 50 industry sectors and considerable scope for future growth, JQW is in a strong position to capitalise on the development of this market.
