hier ein Auszug aus einer früheren Mitteilung von Dao Securities:A Niche In The
Potentially Large Low-end Chinese PC Market.
In 1998, Great
Wall Computer (GWC) sold 76,000 PCs, accounting for about 2% of the
Chinese PC market. Sales volumes of PCs jumped further by 113% in
1H99 to 69,000 sets and GWC is on target to achieve full year sales
of 200,000 sets. GWC focuses on the lower end of the Chinese PC
market, which is seen to have greater potential for growth.
Currently, GWC has about a 40% share of the low-end market. Its
efficient cost structure will allow it to compete effectively with
Contributions From New Investments. In order to leverage on
its existing business, GWT has signed an agreement with Conner
Technology of the US to produce HDDs. This is expected to generate
additional profits to the Group. At the same time, GWT is working on
plans to provide broadband satellite networks on the mainland. It
obtained an 'international business license for PRC information
networks in 31 July 1999.
