Some analysts believe that the fundamental reason the diversified cornerstone investors are willing to invest in Onewo at this time is still that its valuation is suppressed by the market environment. With Onewo's positioning, scale, and operational quality, it is of great potential. As Yu Liang, Chairman of Vanke's Board of Directors, said at the Onewo IPO ceremony, "Vanke does not care about the valuation of Onewo, but more about its future long-term performance. Time will prove the value of Onewo."
