Yougou Denies Rumors of Baidu Investment

National Business Daily, 8/31/11, Chinese online fashion company Belle's B2C footwear platform, has denied earlier reports that it received investment from Chinese internet company Baidu (Nasdaq: BIDU).

Several investment funds have expressed interest in Yougou, according to a senior executive in the company, but management aims to find a strategic investor in the internet sector.

CEO Zhang Xuejun recently disclosed that the company has set a three-year target for profitability.

According to another source within the company, Belle completed a 17,000 square meter warehouse for Yougou in Shenzhen two months ago. Yougou currently uses its own warehousing facilities and third-party logistics providers. Zhang added that Yougou will consider developing its own delivery services once it reaches certain internal sales targets.
