(Summary description)Yuanqi Forest once again "increased in value."

To

Just now, this local start-up beverage brand, which has risen fiercely in recent years, announced that it has completed a new round of strategic financing, with a post-investment valuation of US$6 billion (approximately RMB 39.3 billion). In this round of financing, Yuanqi Forest's old shareholder Sequoia China and new shareholders Warburg Pincus, L catterton participated in the lead investment, and Temasek and several old shareholders Gao Rong and Longfor continued to participate in the investment.

Let's take a look at it together.

"Product New Year"

To

The person in charge of Yuanqi Forest stated to Xiaoshidai today that the amount of Yuanqi Forest’s current round of financing will be mainly used in four aspects: 1) Carrying out overseas mergers and acquisitions to introduce more overseas high-quality products; 2) Building a higher-quality and more environmentally friendly beauty in China Factory; 3) Increase investment in scientific and technological research and development; 4) Continue to internationalize.

To

This also shows the follow-up development path and competitive strategy of Yuanqi Forest.

To

First of all, it can be expected that this local beverage company will further expand its "new product lineup." Xiaoshidai introduced that Tang Binsen, the founder of Yuanqi Forest, once said that 2021 will be the "product year" of Yuanqi Forest. There are still 95% of Yuanqi Forest's products that have not been launched. R&D expenses and R&D personnel investment will reach three times that of 2020. .

To

"We will devote more energy and expenses to product formulation upgrades and new product research and development." Yuanqi Forest said today that it will conduct product research and development based on current consumer trends and young people's insights, and continue to strengthen category innovation and supply. The construction of chain production bases will seize the subdivision opportunities of the food and beverage track.

To

Building a stronger product "moat" is indeed the key to the continued growth of the vitality forest that has become popular with sugar-free soda sparkling water in the future.

To

Xiaoshidai introduced that the vitality forest sprang up in a wave of "0 sugar, 0 calorie, 0 fat" beverage craze. Previously, many beverage companies have also introduced sugar-free tea and carbonated beverages that use sugar substitutes, but some of the most common sugar substitutes have a bit of taste, such as a bitter aftertaste. The success of Yuanqi Forest Sugar-Free Sparkling Water is inseparable from erythritol. It is also one of the earliest domestic brands to use this sugar substitute to produce beverages on a large scale. The latter is advertised as having better taste and tolerance. But the price of raw materials is also relatively higher.

To

However, since erythritol is not a patent of Yuanqi Forest itself, this also means that its success is not "uncopyable". In fact, there have been more opponents of Yuanqi Forest, and more and more sugar-free soda sparkling water with similar product positioning and formula has appeared on the market. For example, the new tea chain Xicha last year launched the "0 sugar, 0 calorie, 0 fat" flavored sparkling water that also uses erythritol.

To

If the raw materials are only a small angle, then the larger proposition for the development of the vitality forest also includes how to create more large single products and how to achieve sustainable growth. Under the eye of a group of competitors and the "spur" of capital, the vitality forest is running wildly all the way.

To

"On the scale of the entire business, our plan for 2021 is to reach 7.5 billion yuan in sales." Yuanqi Forest told Xiaoshidai today. This means that the growth target of Yuanqi Forest this year has more than doubled. According to official sources, in 2020, the sales of Yuanqi Forest will be close to 3 billion yuan.

In fact, the vitality forest, which relies on sugar-free sparkling water and burning tea to conquer the market in the beverage market, has been gradually expanding its layout in the main categories of beverages. For example, last year, Yuanqi Forest launched its first fruit juice drink sub-brand "Full Score", and its first energy drink sub-brand "Alien".

To

Up to now, Yuanqi Forest has more categories of beverage products, including sugar-free low-fat milk tea, sugar-free yogurt, sugar-free energy drinks, juice sparkling water, etc.

Self-built capacity and overseas layout

Secondly, after this financing, it is expected that Yuanqi Forest will further increase its self-built production capacity.
