Despite significant improvements in gross margin and opex leverage from scale benefits, we see enough depth for further growth, both in customer size and supplier inventory in the next two years. We believe Vipshop’s value-add in matching excess inventory supply and core consumer group demand is distinctive in China B2C eCommerce, and offers an attractive way to play softness in China’s consumer discretionary sector.”
