Over the past year, Huayi Brothers have been in a storm of public opinion. From industry tax reform to pledge rumors, the confidence of Huayi Brothers shareholders has also been tested one after another.

The main reason for the decline in income is that the combined income of movies, TV dramas and live entertainment is lower than that of last year. Among them, the intertemporal movies Yunnan Worm Valley and Can I return my brother? u300b Income declined to a large extent from the same period last year.
On the other hand, the decline of the companys share price led to Wang Zhongjuns Pledged Shares touching the liquidation line for a time, and the pledge situation eased after timely replenishment adjustment.
