In addition, the real estate firm was also included in the 2019 Brand Finance Global 150 list and the BrandZ™ Top 50 Most Valuable Chinese Brands list, among other leading rankings.


According to Country Garden's financial statement for 2018, the company experienced steady growth despite the downturn in the overall Chinese real estate market and policies put in place by the Chinese government meant to put a brake on the market. Country Garden achieved 501.88. billion yuan (approx. US$72.2 billion) in contract sales last year, representing a year on year growth of 31.25 per cent.

US$14.7 billion), up 74.3 per cent year on year, while net profit clocked in at 48.54 billion yuan (approx. US$6.9 billion), up 68.8 per cent year on year.

US$34.9 billion), the firm posted a positive net operating cash flow for the third consecutive year, reflecting its strong ability to manage risk.

 


A number of leading financial institutions including J.P. Morgan, Goldman Sachs, BOC International and BNP Paribas gave Country Garden a "buy" rating in view of the company's steady growth.


China International Capital Corporation reaffirmed a "buy" rating for Country Garden based on the company's ample land reserve, strong execution competence and outstanding portfolio. The real estate firm expects to see a continued rise in both sales and profitability this year.


Since the second half of last year, Country Garden has been focusing on the enhancement of the quality of operations while steadying the pace of expansion as part of its long-term strategy to maintain operational consistency. In 2019, with real estate, modern agriculture and robotics as three core businesses, the company plans to deepen the level of the collaboration with its partners and promote business integration and transformation in a move to enhance its comprehensive competitiveness, with the aim of making greater contributions to society by creating both social and economic value.
