The Group’s net profit for 2021 was approximately RMB37.09 million, which was 1.44 times higher than that of the previous year. For the year ended 31 December 2022, the Group’s revenue amounted to approximately RMB1.535 billion, with a net profit of approximately 31.75 million, both representing a decline from those of the previous year. The adjustments were mainly attributable to a number of major cities being under strict and widespread COVID-19 lockdown measures imposed by the PRC government, together with the drastic price surge in international oil price in the first half of 2022, leading to market participants in general becoming more conservative and prudent. In the second half of 2022, global economic activities and traffic gradually resumed normal from the COVID-19 pandemic. In addition, the PRC government began gradually easing the city-wide strict lockdown measures in major Chinese cities. The Group recorded a revenue of approximately RMB1.134 billion, which was 183.5 per cent higher than that of the first half of 2022, signifying gradual recovery of the Group’s business activities.
