Founder, Chairman, and CEO of RELX, Wang Ying, stated, “Since the implementation of the national standard for e-cigarettes one year ago, we have continuously optimized our product portfolio based on regulatory requirements, aiming to provide high-quality national standard products for adult smokers. However, the existence of an illegal fruit-flavored product gray market and consumers’ lack of knowledge about national standard products has resulted in a slower-than-expected transition to these products. We believe that these challenges are temporary, and as awareness of the harmful nature of illegal products and regulatory crackdowns strengthen, the industry is expected to develop in a healthier and more organized manner. This will lead to more users trusting national standard products and gradually completing the transition.”
Lu Chao, CFO of Fogcore Technology, stated that the company’s operating cash flow has been positive for two consecutive quarters, reflecting the resilience of the company’s business in the face of new regulatory environment.
