2023 is already halfway through, and it is time for mid year trading. Looking at the overall economic situation, the global political and economic situation is constantly changing, and the world economy is shrouded in gloom and continues to be sluggish. As a result, China's paper industry as a whole has suffered a heavy blow, with weak demand, inverted prices, and multiple factors such as overall overcapacity in the industry. In the first half of this year, listed companies in China's paper industry experienced a significant decline in performance, mainly covering packaging paper Different papermaking fields such as cultural paper and specialty paper. Many of these companies have incurred huge losses. In the disclosed semi annual performance forecast, Chenming Paper Industry, which is well-known to everyone, had a pre loss of 650 million to 750 million yuan in the first half of the year; Shanying International suffered a pre loss of over 400 million yuan in the first half of the year; Bohui Paper Industry's performance in the first half of the year was expected to suffer a maximum loss of 376 million yuan, which was quite devastating.

On the other hand, our Kane company's performance report for the first half of the year showed a target sales completion rate of 41.0% and a target production completion rate of 38.4%. The company's annual sales revenue target is 700 million yuan, with a target completion rate of 43.6%.

The company's performance report for the first half of the year may not be impressive, but in the overall sluggish environment, achieving the current results is not easy. This is the result of the joint efforts of all Kane people. At the same time, we also need to recognize the current difficult situation and many existing problems of the company. The company is facing severe market challenges, and we still have a considerable gap from the annual target set at the beginning of the year.

This year, the company's gross profit margin has decreased by 4.1 percentage points compared to last year, and its profitability has continued to decline. At the same time, the company's per capita output has always been at a low level in the industry. At present, we are in a critical period after the transformation of the Kane company system. As the platform on which Kane people rely for survival, the company's profitability and development trends are closely related to every Kane person. How to break through the current difficulties, achieve the company's annual goals, and ensure the company's sustained, healthy, and stable development is a topic that every Kane person is facing.

Kane's current annual per capita revenue is only 50% of the industry average. We need to reform the shortcomings and loopholes in the original personnel management, achieve two-way selection of personnel, establish a scientific employment mechanism that is capable of going up and down, and capable of entering and exiting, so that those who are capable and willing to work can obtain more stage and rewards. At the same time, we will not support idle people, which contradicts Kane's development philosophy, and gradually adjust and optimize it.

2. Continuously investing in technological transformation to achieve the goals of improving efficiency, reducing costs, and seizing the market
