The company's net profit attributable to its shareholders rose to about 14.55 billion yuan, up 15.96 percent over the same period last year, according to the company's quarterly report published recently.

In the third quarter (Q3), the liquor maker, which is based in southwest China's Sichuan Province, reported 3.69 billion yuan of net profit, up 15.03 percent year on year. Its Q3 revenue stood at nearly 11.73 billion yuan, up 17.83 percent year on year.
