What is the strategy of qmd International
QMD International is a multinational holding company with a culture that combines the entrepreneurial spirit with simple financial discipline.
Our goal is to build great companies who provide positive utility to society while delivering superior returns to our investors.
Does QMD focus on a specific sector?
We have a dual-focused approach, targeting both the real estate sector and our new Electronic Commerce platform.
Why does QMD focus its real estate portfolio on third-tier cities?
The management tries to avoid the risks naturally associated with speculative developments in boom-cities like Beijing or Shanghai. At the same time, the company wants to gain profit out of the growing demand for developed space in cities like Weifang, with its population of 8.5 million residents. QMD will consider investments in European retirement and leisure properties.
Why did QMD go public outside of China?
Being listed on the German market provides the Company exposure to a mature capital market, while at the same time, allows European investors a chance to participate in the superior yields associated with Asia. By complying to the listing rules, we create a transparent and open dialogue with the investment community that makes us attractive to non Chinese investors.
Combined with the relatively high growth figures the Asian economy has become associated with, creates a healthy interest in companies from China, which gives us a relatively high visibility towards foreign investors. This all makes our cost of capital relatively low and allows us to pursue our corporate strategy to an extent we feel would be more difficult by being listed on a Chinese stock exchange. Furthermore, being listed in Germany gives us extra standing in our home market, which strengthens our commercial position in the Peoples’ Republic of China.
