From the perspective of business, medium- and small-sized enterprises and private companies are the target clients of the pawn industry. In the first half of 2007, the pawn industry provided 38,000 transactions for the medium and small-sized enterprises, up 18% year on year, with the value of pawnages reaching CNY22.2 billion, and provided 99,000 transactions for the residents, up 8% year on year, with the value standing at CNY19.9 billion.
Taking Beijing as an example, in the first half of 2007, the combined value of 75 pawnshops totaled CNY1.86 billion, up 50.4% year on year and the accumulated balance of the 75 pawnshops reached CNY850 million, up 66.4% year on year, among which, CNY76.48 million went to the interest and the comprehensive expenses and CNY141 million was for tax payment. And the combined profits after tax were CNY12.13 million in the 75 pawnshops with a total 800 employees.
Due to a tighter monetary policy to be carried out by the government in 2008, the medium- and small-sized enterprises will be further inclined to pawnbrokers for fundraising. With the launch of more innovations in pawn business and gradual relaxation of state policies, pawn industry will play a bigger role in solving the financing problems for medium- and small-sized enterprises. However, while focusing on the expansion of business, pawn industry should raise the self-awareness of risk control and tighten the control over risks in the process of operation, circulation and assessment.
