The core points are as follows: Comment expansion, expansion and optimization of key points to improve single-screen efficiency.
The company said that the small increase in the number of points in 1Q19 was mainly due to the normal installation of contracted points; the resource target for 2019 is to optimize the points and improve the efficiency of the expanded screen single point.

The company said that at present, advertisers’ demand for advertising on the Focus platform is not active, instead of seeing a substantial recovery in demand.
However, the company also said that the dynamic adjustment of advertiser budgets is relatively fast. The low investment amount in 1Q19 does not represent the trend in 2019. Advertisers will adjust the advertising budget and delivery rhythm in a timely manner according to the macro environment and business conditions.
On the whole, the uncertainties at the income side are converging.
At present, the advertising budget of Internet advertisers, especially PEVC advertisers, has decreased slightly, mainly due to the significant decrease in the amount of financing in the primary market.

Alibaba’s strategic cooperation has enhanced the company’s digital capabilities.
Investors are concerned about the progress of Ali’s strategic cooperation. The company stated that there has been a small-scale test of data return, which has opened up the data and triggered the meaning; instead, some of the media in Focus Media have been connected to Ali’s global marketingPlatform. In the future, Ali advertisers can choose to participate in the offline distribution of the audience through Ali mothers.
We believe that the cooperation with Ali has become a traditional digital media for the company, which has improved potential operational efficiency.
