In 2020, the Company’s projects under management recorded an aggregate gross floor area (“GFA”) sold of approximately 5.7 million sq.m., and the CAGR of total contract sales amount from 2017 to 2020 was 71.5%, both of which ranked No.1 among all of its peers in China. With a strategic focus on Henan province, the Company has successfully leveraged its well established platform to copy its business model in Hebei, Shanxi, Shaanxi, Xinjiang, Anhui and Hainan provinces and autonomous region. As of May 11, 2021, CCMGT had 234 projects with a total GFA under management of 28.4 million sq.m. in 107 cities across seven provinces and autonomous region in China.
Since its inception, CCMGT has accumulated abundant experience and know-how in project management services. The Company manages property development projects on behalf of Project Owners throughout the entire property development process, providing professional services ranging from project research and approval, project design and planning, construction and cost management, promotion and sales management to delivery of the final property to the ultimate property buyers. Furthermore, the Company has established a network of qualified contractors and suppliers across the real estate development value chain, not only ensuring and enhancing the quality of projects managed by it but also strengthening the “Jianye” brand as a premium brand, which can thus receive a wide recognition by Project Owners and ultimate property buyers.
