In view of the good performance in 2022, Homa Electric stated in the report that first, although the overall business scale is greatly affected by the downturn in the European consumer market, breakthroughs have been made in the development of the Chinese market and the Asia-Pacific region. The second is that in 2022, the company has determined the strategic goal of focusing on the main business of refrigerators. While the product structure continues to be optimized, the proportion of high-end air-cooled refrigerators will increase, and operational efficiency will be improved.
The third is that all violations in the previous period have been rectified.

But before that, Homa Electric’s performance fluctuated greatly, and it also suffered losses for two consecutive years in 2020 and 2021.

In May and July 2021, the controlling shareholder of Homa Electric was changed to TCL Home Appliances. As of March 9, the total market value of Omar Electric was 6.765 billion yuan.
