Ucommune Announces Key Contract With Besunyen at Landmark Asset-Light Project in Beijing Asia Finance Center

BEIJING, Sept. 17, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Ucommune International Ltd. (NASDAQ: UK) ("Ucommune" or the "Company"), a leading agile office space manager and provider in China, today announced that Besunyen Holdings Company Limited ("Besunyen"), an investment company engaged in the manufacture and sale of therapeutic tea products, signed an agreement (the "Agreement") for space at the Company's landmark asset-light project in the Beijing Asia Finance Center (the "Project"). As part of the Agreement, Besunyen will occupy 3,047.6 square meters at the Project for a total of 327 workstations from July 1, 2021, to December 31, 2023. In addition, the Company will also furnish its one-stop customized U Design services to Besunyen under the Agreement to provide the company with a tailored interior design, enhance its brand image, accelerate its corporate transformation, and more.

Besunyen decided to partner with the Company based on its ability to provide Besunyen with a favorable location, high-end facility offerings, potent brand influence, and a one-stop corporate service system. By utilizing the Project as its headquarters, Besunyen has been able to increase its corporate brand image. Several renowned enterprises have benefited from occupying space in the Project, with considerable advantages accruing to the Project's members. As more well-known organizations, such as Besunyen, recognize the Company's expert operational capabilities and robust member value proposition, the Company is increasingly able to grow the Project's occupancy rate at a faster pace. Meanwhile, as more enterprises move in to the Project, there is a corresponding fly-wheel and mutual co-branding effect, which is helping to further promote the Project and attract more enterprises to occupy space. 

By utilizing its self-operated U Design model, the Company has been able to provide Besunyen with best-in-class interior design solutions. As part of its interior design process, the Company developed a simple and consistent style for Besunyen's office space, combining Besunyen's green logo with tan, white, and green colors to reflect the company's corporate culture of health and nature. Ucommune's subsidiary, Guangdong Wanhe Green Technology Co., Ltd. ("Wanhe Green"), executed the decoration and construction of the interior design component for Besunyen. By adopting eco-friendly materials and recycling technology, Wanhe Green implemented this project strictly in line with the environmental protection regulations, helping to further reduce carbon emissions and promote carbon neutrality.

Besunyen's manager commented, "With the rise of the Internet industry and development of China's domestic health industry, we are actively improving our R&D capabilities to transform the new retail sector. Ucommune's intelligent agile office space services have helped us to enhance our brand image, attract superior talent, and focus on improving our core competencies.  We have been committed to healthy living over the past 20 years, which is also in line with Ucommune's commitment to creating eco-friendly office spaces. We are excited to continue working with Ucommune going forward as this cooperation will allow both parties to further advance their goals of promoting health and wellness in China."

Dr. Daqing Mao, Founder of Ucommune, commented, "As more and more traditional brands undergo transformation, they are increasingly interested in partnering with those companies capable of providing flexible and modern office space concepts. Besunyen is a well-known and traditional brand that Chinese people are very familiar with. As part of our agreement, we plan to help Besunyen further improve its operating efficiency and accelerate its corporate transformation by providing it with customized office spaces and facilities as well as our broad range of corporate services for its sizable workforce. We look forward to partnering with more enterprises going forward that are aligned with our values and in search of next-generation office space solutions."
