we are at"You are accustomed to these basic necessities of life, in fact, Ali's site"A text inventory of how Ali arranged for our lives, and its veteran Tencent, WeChat and the "king of glory" to occupy our online time at the same time, along with the tide of the new retail, will also reach out to the tentacles Every corner of the line.
Today we may wish to look at where you often go, what are the "Tencent" site.
Yonghui Supermarket should be regarded as Tencent's first investment in the new retail industry. At the end of 2017, known as "New Retail Year," Tencent spent 4,215 million yuan on a 5% stake in Yonghui Supermarket.
Yonghui fortune in Fujian is currently the fifth largest retailer in the country, and Tencent more fancy, it may be launched in January last year, "super-species" high-end supermarket + fresh Food & Rdquo; the new format and Ali's new retail benchmark box horse freshman is very similar. Therefore, this move is also considered Tencent online retail area and ali mark the official confrontation.
Tencent shares Yonghui only more than a month, but also join the latter will be the fourth domestic supermarket retailer Carrefour China joined its offline retail map. However, at present, only a few signed investment letters of intent, have not yet made a real investment.

Supermarkets, stores have, Tencent investment in the retail industry began to break down into clothing category, the first sign of being turned "man's wardrobe" Hailan home.
February 2, 2018, Tencent to "Tencent 普和 &" company in the name of shares Hailan House, the latter 5.31% stake, worth about 2.5 billion yuan, the two sides also set up a scale of 10 billion yuan of investment funds .
Interestingly, similar to Carrefour China, Hailan home was originally Ali's "rumored object", the two sides reached a strategic cooperation agreement last year, Lynx is also Hailan home focused on the development of online sales platform, and today Tencent switch to some surprises.
Most likely to see its share may be owned by Tencent Jingdong, after all, clothing is the short version of this class, Hailan had previously had in the store move in Jingdong move, but now it has played hot and Jingdong.
However, the main sales channel Heilan is still online, currently has more than 5,000 stores, the annual turnover in 2017 up to 93.305 billion yuan, net profit of 4.133 billion yuan in the "top 500 Chinese enterprises in 2017" clothing category Top of the list.
In the day before the shares of Hailan House, Tencent also "hooked" on the backgammon, although the two have just signed a strategic cooperation framework for the time being, but backgammon insiders to "AI Financial Services," said "transaction also We did not talk about "we infer that the next cooperation between the two parties may involve capital-level transactions.

Although you may still have the impression of backgammon "where do not point the point of reading machine products or split out of the OPPO and vivo, but over the years, the backgammon group also made considerable achievements in the retail industry, this time Cooperation with Tencent is already listed "backgammon commercial chain Co., Ltd." Currently has a variety of industries such as supermarkets, stores, restaurants, convenience stores and so on.
Another retail giant Wal-Mart is the early selection of the station team. It and Jingdong alliance in 2016, the two opened up stocks, Wal-Mart's five flagship stores have been settled in Jingdong Mall, Jingdong 5% of the shares bought from the former No. 1 shop.

Considering that Tencent, which holds a 18.1% stake in Jingdong, is the largest shareholder in Jingdong, Wal-Mart can also be counted as half a "Tencent" retail enterprise.
Almost all of these businesses talk to Tencent's huge online traffic and huge user base to bring about the imagination when they work with Tencent. However, the retail industry has always been Tencent's not-so-good domain, either online or offline. In addition to WeChat Payments In addition, Tencent has not yet seen the "smart retail" solutions in these enterprises.
On the other hand may also be related to Tencent's "Buddhism" style. Tencent has rarely interfered with the companies that are being invested. "All of our investments are in fact smallholders, and all we do here are minority investments. "Tencent management partner Li Zhaohui had admitted in his speech," We want to create the ecology is not simply put Tencent in the middle, circle around to repair "moat". & rdquo;
Having said that, but want to lay a new retail this war, Tencent probably have to end up in person, think about how and these companies sparks Caixing.
