Corporate History

The predecessor of Xinhua Winshare can be traced to Xinhua Bookstore (新华书店), a bookstore founded in 1937 by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) in the Party's headquarter city of Yan'an (延安). Xinhua Bookstore subsequently became the first and only nation-wide bookstore chain following the founding of the People's Republic of China in 1949. After China's opening-up and reform period during the late 1970s to 1980s, Xinhua Bookstore was restructured and broken down from a centrally-controlled business to a number of smaller provincial-level businesses operated by local state-owned companies.


Sichuan Xinhua Bookstore (四川新华书店) was established in 2000 and renamed Sichuan Xinhua Publishing Group (四川新华出版集团) in 2003. Sichuan Xinhua Winshare Chains (新华文轩连锁) was established as a subsidiary of the Group in 2005 and subsequently went public on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange (HKEX: 0811) in 2007. In 2010, Sichuan Xinhua Winshare Chains acquired 15 publishing companies owned by Sichuan Publishing Group (四川出版集团), a state-owned publishing company, and was renamed Xinhua Winshare Publishing and Media (新华文轩出版传媒). Xinhua Winshare went public on the Shanghai Stock Exchange (SHA: 601811) in 2016.
