HANGZHOU, China, Jan. 7, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Yosen Group, Inc. (stock symbol: YOSN) ("Yosen", or "the Company"), announced today that it received "2013 China Telecom's Highest Potential Award" at China Telecom Corporation Ltd.'s ("China Telecom") 2013 Annual Appreciation Gala, as a recognition of Yosen's innovative collaborative model and outstanding performance.
China Telecom hosted its 2013 Annual Appreciation Gala last month in Hangzhou, China, where Yosen is headquartered. It was China Telecom's largest-scaled, most influential annual gathering in recognition of its collaborative partners. Samsung, Huawei, among many other well-known names in the industry, attended the meeting. Yosen was the first company that initiated a "super specialty store in a mass merchandiser/department store" model ("Super Specialty Store"). Last March it opened its first Super Specialty Store in cooperation with China Telecom Zhejiang and operated under a "Yosen Digital - China Telecom E Surfing" co-branding. Later in the year, Yosen launched ten (10) more such Super Specialty Stores co-branded with and supported by China Telecom. As a result, Yosen stood out among China Telecom's thousands of operating partners and attained China Telecom's Highest Potential Award along with a cash prize of 10,000 Yuan.
The Super Specialty Store is Yosen's unique business model under which Yosen cooperates with China's dominant telecommunication operators such as China Telecom. In addition, Yosen also cooperates with China Telecom's rivals China Unicom and China Mobile. The ultimate goal is to provide a top notch shopping convenience for consumers overall.
