Business Strategy and Outlook

| Ivan Su |

The resurgence of COVID-19 cases has again put the Chinese restaurant sector under pressure. Several cities have returning to citywide quarantines, and travel volume during the early period of Chinese New Year is down 70%, placing pressure on the company’s near-term results. Nevertheless, we believe investors should find confidence in restaurants: possessing the scale to be more aggressive on pricing near-term; giving their customers greater access through robust digital ordering, delivery, and drive-thru capabilities; and who have healthy balance sheets when looking for restaurant industry opportunities.
