For the three months, the Group’s retail sales value had increased by 31.1% year-on-year. The growth was narrowing down, compared with 55.8% in Q3 and 69.8% in Q2.

As the Group leveraged the franchise model to advance its retail expansion strategy, the retail sales value growth of its franchised stores had outdone that of its same store sales of self-operated stores. The retail sales value of Chow Tai Fook’s franchised stores had grown markedly by 65.2% in this quarter compared with the same period of FY2020.

The Group unfolded the Dual-Force Strategy in Sep. 2021, which sets out two major growth drivers - retail expansion and smart retail. The group will continue to expand its retail network in mainland China while stepping up the application of advanced retail technologies and smart manufacturing.
