First of all, we should make a full budget.  Carefulness is also a subjective requirement.  Small businesses can be compatible with big businesses to complete together, but we must ensure the best cash holdings.

Secondly, in order to achieve a certain scale and have certain assets, we can carry out financing, expand the business area, and produce scale effect. Choose the right operator, through operating leverage, financial leverage to further enhance profits, when necessary, the operator can be given stock incentives, but the premise is to achieve financing cost offset, not blindly enhance the asset-liability ratio, while maintaining the vitality of the enterprise, but not to make the enterprise into debt crisis.

In addition, we should make clear that the basic purpose of financing is to achieve high-level planning, improve the investment value of stores.  In the choice of expanding business areas, we should lock in areas with high investment expectations, give full play to professional expertise, and ensure a high return on financing.
