Ms. Xiaoxia Zhu, Co-chairperson and Chief Executive Officer commented, "We are pleased to report our fourth quarter and full year 2016 financial results, which marks the first full year since we successfully transitioned into an online B2B foodservice marketplace. The successful development of our business model -- connecting industry customers directly with suppliers and eliminating multiple layers of distributor markups - is translating into significant growth in our business. In 2016, we achieved a milestone of RMB 10 billion GMV (US$1.6 billion) thanks to the 39% GMV growth in the fourth quarter of 2016." "We remain focused on our mission to establish JMU as China's largest internet foodservice platform. In 2016, we strategically partnered with 29 premium source suppliers, including multiple leading brands like COFCO and Haier, as well as international source suppliers like NISSEI and Chia Tai. In collaboration with these source suppliers, our platform now exceeds over fifty thousand SKU's which includes over eight hundred direct sale product SKU's." "On the R&D front, through our coordination with Alibaba, we have successfully connected our mobile platform with Koubei, one of the largest local-foodservices platforms, to streamline digital transactions. We also broadened access to our platform and strengthened overall user engagement through improvements to our WeChat platform as well as ERP system development." As previously announced, in September 2015, JMU, previously known as JM Wowo, divested Wowo Group Limited, the Company's group buying and other non-foodservice-related businesses in an effort to build one of China's largest internet foodservice platforms, improve its profitability and streamline its business operations.

The growth of revenue in the fourth quarter 2016 was mainly due to larger order volumes from corporate clients through our online direct sales business. Cost of revenues was $20.2 million in fourth quarter 2016, an increase of 152.5% from $8.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2015 and a sequential increase of 1.0% from $20.0 million in the third quarter of 2016, which is generally in-line with the growth of the Company's revenues. Gross profit for the fourth quarter of 2016 was $0.7million, as compared to gross loss of $0.6 million in fourth quarter 2015 and a gross loss of $0.1 million in the third quarter of 2016. The improvement was mainly due to well-maintained relationships with corporate clients and lower prices from suppliers for significant transaction volumes. Operating expenses were $9.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2016, decreased 89.4% from $92.2 million in prior year period and increased 25.6% from $7.8 million in the third quarter of 2016. The decrease in operating expense from fourth quarter 2015 was mainly due to an impairment loss of $85.9 million incurred in fourth quarter 2015. Excluding the impact of impairment loss, operating expense would have been $9.8 million and $6.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2016 and 2015, respectively. Loss from operations in fourth quarter 2016 was $9.2 million, a decrease of 90.1% from $92.8 million in fourth quarter 2015 and an increase of 16.5% from $7.9 million in the third quarter of 2016. Net loss attributable to the Company in the fourth quarter of 2016 was $8.5 million, a decrease of 90.8% as compared to $92.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2015.

Revenues were $73.2 million for the year of 2016, an increase of 536.5% from $11.5 million in 2015.

Cost of revenues was $72.9 million in the year of 2016, an increase of 452.3% from $13.2 million in 2015, which is generally in-line with the growth of the Company's revenues. Gross profit for fiscal 2016 was $0.3 million compared to gross loss of $1.7 million in 2015. The improvement was mainly due to well-maintained relationships with corporate clients and lower prices from suppliers for significant transaction volumes. Selling and marketing expenses in 2016 increased 277.8% to $20.4 million from $5.4 million in 2015. As a percentage of total revenue, selling and marketing expense was 27.9% and 47.0% in fiscal 2016 and 2015, respectively. The increase in marketing expenses was primarily due to client promotion activities in the fourth quarter. General and administrative expenses in 2016 were $7.5 million, a decrease of 41.9% compared to $12.9 million in 2015. The decrease in general and administrative expenses was mainly due to a one time admiration fee of $4.1 million for the merger of Wowo Ltd and JMU Ltd incurred in 2015. As a percentage of total revenues, general and administrative expenses was 10.2% and 112.2% in the fiscal year of 2016 and 2015, respectively.

As of December 31, 2016, the Company's cash and cash equivalents was $2.6 million, a decrease of 76.8% as compared to $11.2 million as of December 31, 2015. The decrease in cash and cash equivalents was mainly due to the operating cost and the growth of the Company's online direct sales which requires cash outflow for products procurement. Total shareholders' equity was $248.4 million and $304.7 million as of December 31, 2016 and 2015, respectively. JMU filed its annual report for the year ended December 31, 2016 on Form 20-F with the Securities and Exchange Commission. The annual report on Form 20-F can be accessed and downloaded through the investor relations section of the Company's website and all shareholders can receive a hard copy of the Company's complete audited financial statements free of charge upon request.

The AUS$75 million Chateau Seppeltsfield Minquan, in Henan Province, eastern-central China, took three years to build and officially opened on 13 May. It is the first Chinese chateau to be part-owned by an Australian winemaker, and will serve as both a retail cellar door and tourism facility, promoting the wines of both Seppeltsfield and Minquan. The Chinese market is of significant importance to Australian winemakers, with the market last year overtaking the UK as the biggest importer of its wines. Imports to Australia have been given a boost since the signing of a free trade agreement with the country, which came into force in 2015, and a growing interest in wine by the Chinese middle class. Speaking to Australia’s abc.net, Seppeltsfield’s sales and marketing manager Chad Elson said the opening of this chateau was the “next step” for the brand in establishing itself in the Chinese market. “We have recognised China as probably the leading international wine market for the Australian category,” he said. “This was a particular project to have some form of physical presence in the market, so taking our relationship from purely trade to actually having a retail bricks-and-mortar facility on the ground in China. “The chateau is more or less operating as a cellar door, but the second component is a bit of an operational hub.” Chateau Seppeltsfield Minquan is located in Minquan County, one hour from Henan’s capital city, Zhengzhou, whose population is 10 million. Minquan is also accessible from Beijing and Shanghai by a recently completed (300 km/hour) high speed rail. Elson also noted how Australia’s relationship with China had changed, with a project such as this unlikely to have been proposed only a decade ago. “Ten years ago, the value of Australian wine exports was about $27 million … currently it is over $500 million,” he said. “There were certainly signals that the market was developing, but how rapid it has been in the last three years particularly … it certainly rocketed far quicker than probably what we could have ever imagined.” Only last month Australian Vintage announced it was strengthening its presence in the Chinese market, selling a 15% stake in its company to Vintage China Fund, a new partnership founded by YesMyWine founder Dixon Yuan. YesMyWine is China’s biggest online wine retailer, and will gain exclusive distribution rights to AVL’s wine brands, except McGuigan which has an existing partnership with COFCO, including Nepenthe and Tempus Two. Seppeltsfield is one of Australia’s oldest wineries, founded in 1850 by Joseph Seppelt, and is best-known for its 100-year-old Para Tawny. Set aside in 1878, the first bottles were released in 1978, and every year, with the winery putting aside its finest wines each year to be matured for a century before release. Chateau Seppeltsfield Minquan will continue to be the home of Minquan Jiuding Wine Company Ltd, whose most prominent wine brand, ‘1958’, will be promoted alongside Seppeltsfield. The property will primarily be used a retail outlet and tourism hub, and will also be used to promote tourism to the Barossa Valley and South Australia.

A mill roller transmission mechanism comprises a frame (7), a fast roller (1), a slow roller (2), and a toothed belt (4). The toothed belt (4) is provided with an inner toothed surface and an outer toothed surface. The inner toothed surface of the toothed belt (4) is engaged with an outer peripheral surface of the fast roller (1). The outer toothed surface of the toothed belt (4) is engaged with an outer peripheral surface of the slow roller (2). The mill roller transmission mechanism further comprises: a tensioning seat (51), a support shaft (52), a swing frame (53), a rolling shaft (54), a tensioning wheel (3), and a press mechanism. Also disclosed is a mill employing the transmission mechanism. The tensioning mechanism is designed to be an elastic adjustable mechanism, so that when the tensioning wheel is engaged with the inner tooth wall of the toothed belt, there is a margin for buffering, and the tension of the toothed belt may be buffered through the elasticity of the tensioning mechanism. The pitch of the teeth of the toothed belt is optimized, to improve power transmission and stability. The outer peripheral surface of the tensioning wheel is optimized, to make it easy to mount the toothed belt.
