U.S superstore titans, Wal-Mart are set to take a controlling share in Chinese e-commerce business Yihaodian.
This has come as the world’s biggest merchant looks for new sales solutions. This is in a bid to fend off growing levels of competition in what is the world’s greatest and fastest developing major market. The move comes; unsurprisingly two-weeks after Wal-Mart announced their new head of the company’s China operations.
This finally ends a number of different management adjustments at the company. They have been recently tainted by food scandals including a mislabelling of pork ‘issue’ last year which resulted in a dozen of stores in China being briefly shut down.
The latest purchase from Wal-Mart will take their share in the business, subject to Government regulatory approval, to 51% and despite the lack of financial details produced by Wal-Mart it still isn’t obvious what Wal-Mart’s previous stake was and how much this has cost them.
Using this you can expect that there will be a rise in e-commerce from additional global companies in an attempt to enhance their income. Very little companies have an e-commerce site and will likely be losing out on a reasonably large volume of sales and business.
