Who Are We
Established in 1993, Alpha Group Co., Ltd. (Alpha), has grown into one of China’s largest and most successful animation and entertainment groups. Since day one, we have adhered to a corporate philosophy of “Bring joy, wisdom & dream to the world”, constantly exceeding expectations by excelling in innovative development. On 10 September 2009, we publicly listed Alpha on the Shenzhen Stock Exchange under stock code: 002292.
In building China’s leading pan-entertainment industry operating platform, we are committed to providing consumers with cutting-edge cultural and peripheral products and services. Leveraging a diversified interactive business model encompassing animation, movies, operas, consumer goods, games, theme parks, and culture and education, we integrate different industry resources to meet increasingly sophisticated consumer demand for cultural entertainment.
Alpha owns many popular animation brands and cartoon character resources in China. In addition to Pleasant Goat and Big Big Wolf, specific examples include Armor Hero, Balala The Fairies, Happy Friends, Super Wings and Backkom. Our three-dimensional communication resources and omni-media channels now include not only Jia Jia Cartoon Channel, which is one of the country’s five most popular cartoon satellites, but also various mobile phone animation platforms such as ikan and mhmp. We also work closely with leading national broadcasters like CCTV Children’s Channel, plus various influential print and new media (e.g. provincial satellite TV, cartoon channels, iQIYI and Letv). In harnessing every link from content to consumer, we are steadily delivering on our goal of building a solid foundation via which to maximize our brand value.
After two decades of unstinting effort and steady progress in the rapidly evolving fields of entertainment and culture, we are now one of China’s most innovative new internet enterprises engaging in pan-entertainment business. By leveraging “content as entry point while focusing on the industry chain”, we also became the first animation company to list on a Chinese stock market. Our core businesses include content production, media operation, brand licensing, animation toys, baby products and mobile phone games. We have also successfully branched out into movies, operas, theme parks and other interactive activities involving entertainment, consumer products, internet networks, culture and education. Our operations ultimately achieve cyclical development by creating a business model that truly integrates both cultural and industrial excellence.
In coping with fast-changing technology and an ever-evolving market environment, we continue to insist on the comprehensive strategic coverage of excellent intellectual property resources essential for the creating of a strong core. Looking ahead, we will also strive to further enhance our dominance in movies, games, videos and mobile internet-based businesses. At the same time, we will accelerate the pace of international development with the ongoing globalization of mergers and acquisitions. Our primary objective is the establishment of a huge globally-oriented, open entertainment platform that provides innovative animation culture and entertainment experiences and services to consumers all over the world.
Through a strategy of global development, brand characters and related products owned by Alpha are now successfully marketed in over 40 countries and regions worldwide. We have also established strong strategic partnerships with over 130 top international entertainment and toy brands such as Walmart, Toys“R”Us, Disney, Hasbro, Nickelodeon and Cartoon Network. By complementing these partners’ resources and channels, exchanging and co-developing technologies and talents, we are continually enhancing our global market presence.
