Leaking Xiaomi Auto, both companies apologized: fire employees and never hire them!

On December 20th, the Red Star Capital Bureau reported that ZAKER official blog issued the "Apology Statement on Xiaomi Automobile Information Disclosure", saying that Bao Moumou, an employee of the automobile division, had been dismissed and would never be hired. A few days ago, Xiaomi Automobile’s real car shooting scene map was exposed, and it was suspected that the media leaked out when shooting the scene map.

In the apology statement, it was mentioned that on December 17th, 2023, ZAKER was invited to participate in the static product tasting shooting activity of Xiaomi Automobile. Before the activity, Bao Moumou, an employee of our automobile division, signed the Confidentiality Commitment Letter.

During the tasting shooting, Bao Moumou mistakenly thought that the photos of Xiaomi Automobile publicized by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology were the materials shot by other media in the same place, and mistakenly thought that your company (Xiaomi Automobile) was allowed to publicly release the photographed photos, so he sent three work tidbits with Xiaomi Automobile to his personal WeChat circle of friends for personal purposes without the permission of your company (Xiaomi Automobile) on-site staff and without informing our company, and was reminded by the on-site staff. Bao Moumou immediately realized the seriousness of the matter and immediately deleted the content of the circle of friends. The release time lasted about 5 minutes, but the photos have spread and caused heated discussion on the Internet.

Our company attached great importance to the incident after learning of it, and immediately set up an incident investigation team on the same day to verify the relevant situation and relevant personnel. Bao Moumou, the employee involved, was fully aware of his own mistakes, and our company severely criticized and educated Bao Moumou. His personal behavior of unauthorized disclosure has seriously violated the rules and regulations of ZAKER Employee Manual and the confidentiality obligations of employees. According to the relevant rules and regulations of the company, our company dismissed Bao Moumou, an employee of the automobile division, and never hired him.

The incident was triggered by our employees’ violation of the Confidentiality Commitment Letter, which brought some pressure and influence to your company. We sincerely apologize for this. Our company is willing to maintain active communication with your company, and cooperate with your company to take all necessary measures to properly handle the adverse effects caused by leaks and emotional incidents and fulfill its due responsibilities.

At the same time, our company will earnestly learn lessons, reflect deeply, take a warning, comprehensively strengthen the legal awareness, confidentiality awareness and professional ethics education of relevant teams and employees, and resolutely put an end to the recurrence of such incidents.

"Xiaobai buys a car" apologizes:

On the afternoon of December 20th, Xiaobai bought a car and issued a "Statement on the Number of Information Leaks of Xiaomi Automobile" to apologize.

The statement said: On December 17, 2023, our company participated in the tasting and shooting activities of Xiaomi’s static products. Before that, our photographer Guan Moumou had signed the Confidentiality Commitment Letter. After the filming ended that night, Guan Moumou mistakenly thought that the confidentiality was limited to the company platform. Without the permission of the on-site staff and without informing the company, he sent a partial photo of the car penalty taken on the spot to two WeChat friends for personal reasons, and was later forwarded to the riders by his friends. When he realized the seriousness of the problem, the photo had been expanded on the network and could not be withdrawn.

We are deeply sorry for this, because we violated the "Confidentiality Commitment" and caused pressure and loss to Xiaomi Automobile Technology Co., Ltd.. After careful reflection and internal investigation, this incident was caused by the weak legal awareness of employees in our enterprise, the lack of contract concept, personal misconduct, and the inadequate internal management supervision of our enterprise. Here, we sincerely apologize to all the affected people and Xiaomi Automobile Technology Co., Ltd.

In order to ensure that this kind of incident will not happen again, our company has seriously criticized Guan Moumou, and his unauthorized disclosure has seriously violated the company’s rules and regulations and affected the company’s reputation. Therefore, according to the relevant rules and regulations of the company, our company will dismiss Guan Moumou and never hire him. And here we solemnly promise that we will strictly abide by laws and regulations, fulfill confidentiality obligations and re-train and educate all employees of the company in the future.

Once again, I sincerely apologize to all the affected people and Xiaomi Automobile Technology Co., Ltd. Our company will maintain a positive communication attitude, do its due duty, cooperate with all relevant investigations of Xiaomi Automobile Technology Co., Ltd., and properly handle the impact caused by this leak.

Xiaomi is angry! Lei jun forwarding

On December 19th, Xiaomi Group issued a statement in the official Weibo, saying that recently, malicious leaks and false rumors about Xiaomi automobile appeared in batches on the Internet, and the company made a formal response.

The statement mentioned that on December 17th, Bao Moumou, an employee of the media "ZAKER", and Guan Moumou, an employee of "Xiaobai Buying a Car", intentionally leaked the confidential shooting content without permission, knowing the confidentiality obligation and corresponding penalties. As verified by Xiaomi Group’s confidential management team, the above two people have admitted their violation of confidentiality obligations.

After communicating with its media, Xiaomi will investigate the responsibility of the two people and their media for leaking secrets according to the corresponding provisions of the Confidentiality Commitment signed by both parties, including but not limited to public apologies and fines.

At the same time, Xiaomi Group verified that in November and December, 2023, three former employees of Xiaomi Automobile Department participated in the so-called "Xiaomi Automobile Seminar" organized by external brokers and investment institutions without permission for the purpose of collecting "consulting fees". Xiaomi said that it "spread a lot of wrong and false information, seriously misleading the market and disrupting the normal business development of Xiaomi Automobile".

Xiaomi said that the above three employees seriously violated the Code of Conduct for Employees of Xiaomi Group and the confidentiality obligations stipulated by the company. Xiaomi Group has dismissed them and never hired them, and investigated their legal responsibilities according to law. At the same time, Xiaomi Group reserves the right to pursue legal responsibility for brokers and investment institutions that organize related activities.

On the evening of December 19th, Lei Jun, founder, chairman and CEO of Xiaomi, forwarded the Statement on his personal Weibo, and sent three expressions of bowing.

According to public information, the car involved in this leak is Xiaomi SU7, and the content involved is the static experience spy photos of Xiaomi SU7.

According to the interface news report, with the gradual exposure of various configuration data of Xiaomi Automobile, the last remaining key information is the price. Earlier, it was reported that Xiaomi SU7 will be available in four versions, with the price ranging from 190,000 to 300,000 yuan. The official has not released the information yet, and the sales staff also said that it is still unclear.

Some analysts predict that the lowest price of Xiaomi car starting at 190,000 yuan is hard to be surprised, and I am afraid it will not be able to replicate the sensation caused by the original price of Xiaomi mobile phone at 1999 yuan. In addition, for Xiaomi, which is famous for its cost performance, Xiaomi still needs to establish its own advantages in terms of performance and design.

Xiaomi Automobile has invested 3400 engineers.

R&D expenditure exceeds 10 billion yuan.

According to the news of the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology in official website on November 15th, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology released the contents of the Announcement of Road Motor Vehicle Manufacturers and Products (the 377th batch) and the Catalogue of Energy-saving and New Energy-using Vehicles with Vehicle and Vessel Tax Relief (the 56th batch), and two Xiaomi brand pure electric cars were listed.

According to the public information, the trademark of Xiaomi Automobile is Xiaomi brand, which is a pure electric car, and the manufacturer is Beijing Automotive Group Off-road Vehicle Co., Ltd.

Recently, Xiaomi Automobile has caused a heated discussion. A few days ago, Lei Jun, the chairman of Xiaomi, a figure in the heat center, also appeared in front of the public to express his views on Xiaomi Automobile. In an interview with CCTV news "Face to Face", Lei Jun said that Xiaomi’s investment in building cars is ten times that of other automakers. For example, he said that the average car brand invested 300 to 400 people in building a car, and the cost was 1 billion to 2 billion yuan, while the first car of Xiaomi Automobile invested 3,400 engineers as a whole, and the research and development cost exceeded 10 billion yuan.

However, Lei Jun also expressed his concern about the sales situation. He was worried that no one would buy Xiaomi after it went on the market, and that everyone would buy it, but it would take a year or two.

Evergrande Automobile announced that there was a risk of production suspension.

China Evergrande announced on March 22nd that Hengchi 5 was officially mass-produced on September 16th, 2022, and the first batch of mass-produced cars was delivered on October 29th, 2022. As of the date of this announcement, Evergrande New Energy Vehicle has delivered more than 900 vehicles. Due to the tight liquidity, in order to maintain basic business operations, Evergrande New Energy Automobile has taken measures to cut costs, such as reducing the number of its employees. By March 2023, Evergrande New Energy had 2,795 employees, compared with 3,742 employees by June 30, 2022.

Evergrande Automobile said that the Group was at risk of production suspension if it could not obtain new liquidity. However, if the Group can seek financing of more than 29 billion yuan in the future, it plans to launch a number of flagship models and hope to achieve mass production. Under this plan, the accumulated cash flow without leverage from 2023 to 2026 is expected to reach between negative 7 billion yuan and negative 5 billion yuan.

It is worth mentioning that on March 7, Evergrande New Energy Automobile Investment Holding Group Co., Ltd. and Evergrande New Energy Automobile (Guangdong) Co., Ltd., affiliated companies of Hengchi Automobile, were executed for more than 1.04 million yuan due to bill disputes. Counting this execution, the above-mentioned companies have been executed a total of 377 million yuan. Evergrande New Energy Automobile (Guizhou) Co., Ltd. has also been executed for nearly 300 million yuan, and was added to the list of dishonesty by the local court because of default in execution.

In addition, the Swedish Global Electric Vehicle Company (NEVS), a subsidiary of Evergrande Automobile, recently announced the launch of the "Hibernation Plan". According to the plan, the company plans to lay off 320 employees, accounting for nearly 95% of the total number of employees, which will start in the next six months. If the plan is fully implemented, NEVS will have only 20 employees left.

Since the delivery began at the end of October last year, Hengchi 5 has been in constant turmoil. Within 15 days after the pre-sale, Hengchi 5 claimed that the order had exceeded 37,000 vehicles, but only 100 vehicles could be found in the delivery data at that time. By the end of December last year, Hengchi 5 had delivered a total of 324 vehicles.

It is also reported that Evergrande has been losing money continuously since it was renamed Evergrande in September 2020. According to the financial report data of Evergrande, in 2018, 2019 and 2020, Evergrande lost 1.429 billion yuan, 4.426 billion yuan and 7.394 billion yuan respectively, and the financial report for 2021 was not released on time.

The new HI version of Extreme Fox Alpha S opens NCA in Guangzhou.

On March 21st, the new HI version of Extreme Fox Alpha S opened the NCA in Guangzhou (namely, urban intelligent driving navigation assistance). Car owners in Guangzhou can go to the store to upgrade in batches according to the appointment of the sales consultant. This is also the third city that the new HI version of Extreme Fox Alpha S is open to users and can realize high-level intelligent driving in urban areas, and it is the first time in the industry to realize cross-city point-to-point NCA traffic between Shenzhen and Guangzhou, two important cities in the Pearl River Delta. Prior to this, the new HI version of Extreme Fox Alpha S was launched in Shenzhen and Shanghai respectively last year.

It is understood that the urban NCA promoted this time can realize autonomous cruising, unprotected intersection traffic, close-range congestion treatment, active overtaking lane change/parallel lane separation, tunnel traffic and other operations in urban areas.

It is reported that the new HI version of Extreme Fox Alpha S is equipped with 34 sensors in hardware, including 3 laser radars, 6 millimeter-wave radars, 12 ultrasonic sensors and 13 high-definition cameras to achieve 360 all-round coverage.

At present, with the continuous evolution of intelligent driving from ADAS to high-level autonomous driving, the stadium has shifted from high-speed to cities with more complex scenes. How to quickly overcome urban scenes to create a universal autonomous driving solution for the whole scene has become an urgent problem for the industry.

The Extreme Fox Alpha S HI version was launched on May 17, 2022, and the first batch of delivery was started on July 16, 2022. Previously, it has taken the lead in opening the NCA function in Shenzhen, Shanghai and Guangzhou, opening the NCA function in 249 cities across the country, and opening the 290,000-kilometer expressway intercity intelligent driving network. It has driven more than 300,000 kilometers safely, and intelligent parking has helped users realize worry-free parking for more than 45,000 times. In addition, through three OTA upgrades, it has added many functions, such as APA (Intelligent Parking Assistance) front parking, RPA remote parking, and ICA (Intelligent Cruise Assistance) in urban areas, and its high-level intelligent driving ability has continued to advance.

It is worth mentioning that in Shenzhen and Shanghai, urban NCA has become an important tool for users to travel, and the proportion of users who use this function is as high as 40%, and the use dependence of high-level intelligent driving is forming.

Ford Explorer EV officially released based on MEB platform.

I have to say that the design of the window line of the new car rising at the C-pillar really adds some strength to it. In addition, the style of multi-spoke two-color low wind resistance rim is also unique, which provides three sizes of 19/20/21 inches.

In terms of the rear end, the taillight style and the style surrounded by the rear echo the front of the car, which has a good sense of integrity. This car offers body colors including Arctic Blue and Vitality Blue, Frozen White, Magnetic Grey, Agate Black and Vitality Red. In terms of body size, its overall length is slightly shorter than ID.4.

For the interior, the new car uses a 15-inch Ford Sync Move central touch screen, just like the "move" in its name, which is a screen that can rise and fall. There are touch buttons on the island platform below the screen, which can control the volume and so on. The car is equipped with keyless entry, dual-zone automatic air conditioning, wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, and 10-color atmosphere lights.

BYD’s "Yunnian" was officially announced or related to chassis technology.

A few days ago, BYD officially announced the "cloud". Judging from the descriptions of "going over mountains and mountains", "steadily moving forward" and "emperor’s car" in the copy, it seems to be a technology about chassis or driving system.

When BYD registered the trademark Yunqi, there were three kinds of Yunqi, Yunqi -A and Yunqi -P in the trademark name, which were somewhat similar to DM-i and DM-p in BYD’s plug-in technology.

Review on the Management of Bosch’s 2022 Annual Board of Directors

() The business review of the Board of Directors in 2022 is as follows:

  I. The industry in which the company is located during the reporting period.

  1, the basic situation of the industry, development stage, cyclical characteristics.

  During the "Tenth Five-Year Plan" period, China took "raising gas, reducing carbon, strengthening ecology, increasing water, consolidating soil and preventing risks" as the basic idea, and stressed that it was necessary to achieve new breakthroughs in key areas and key indicators such as industrial sewage treatment, industrial park management, high-end equipment and carbon neutrality, and continue to carry out various special actions to prevent and control pollution. Water, soil, solid and waste gas will continue to be under strict supervision. With the innovation of supervision means and mechanism, on the one hand, after the "Double Carbon Strategy" was put forward, traditional environmental protection developed into green environmental protection, and emerging fields such as clean energy, energy saving and low carbon, and green recycling, which are closely related to double carbon, were included in the category of green environmental protection, stimulating the green environmental protection industry to usher in major development opportunities; On the other hand, a large number of state-owned enterprises and central enterprises have entered the field of ecological environment by setting up environmental protection companies or participating in the mixed reform of private environmental protection enterprises. The environmental protection industry has entered the form of industrial collectivization and developed into a comprehensive service group with nationwide and whole industrial chain, and the industrial competition pattern has further intensified.

  (1) Water treatment industry

  The 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China has made comprehensive arrangements for strengthening the construction of ecological civilization, fighting a tough battle against pollution and building a beautiful China. As the task of implementing the overall layout of "five in one" such as "ecological civilization construction" and winning the key plan of "fighting a tough battle against pollution" and "building a beautiful China", the battle for clear water has been promoted to a historic strategic height.

  Fourth, the main business analysis

  1. Overview

  In 2022, the company’s audited operating income was 2,223,804,900 yuan, a decrease of 16.29% over the same period of last year; The net profit attributable to shareholders of listed companies was-448,723,700 yuan, a decrease of 66,044,600 yuan compared with the same period of last year. The operating income was 672,917,500 yuan, an increase of 11.18%, and the operating cash flow was 153,440,300 yuan, an increase of 559,131,700 yuan. The main reasons for the company’s losses are as follows: firstly, during the reporting period, the company continued to optimize its business structure. YEATION strictly controlled the municipal engineering business, vigorously developed the industrial sector business, continuously increased the proportion of equipment sales revenue, and promoted the audit and settlement of completed projects. The order volume of the municipal engineering sector decreased, and the engineering output value of some completed projects was reduced, resulting in a year-on-year decline in engineering business income. Although the orders for the industrial sector increased rapidly, most of the industrial orders signed in 2022 were still under implementation due to the volume of the project and the implementation cycle, and the acceptance and handover work could not be completed within the reporting period and turned into output value. Under the comprehensive influence, the income scale of the company’s main business declined. Secondly, according to the requirements of accounting standards and internal control system, the company conducted impairment tests on all kinds of assets, and made individual provision for impairment losses on the accounts receivable of old municipal project customers with obvious signs of impairment and the inventory of engineering projects that were stopped due to abnormal reasons and the construction period was delayed, and made provision for impairment losses of all kinds of assets of RMB104,124,200 for the whole year. To sum up,The main reasons for the company’s operating performance loss in 2022 are the decline in income scale and the provision of some asset impairment losses.

  At present, the company is in an important transition period. On the one hand, it continues to concentrate superior resources to develop industrial sector business; on the other hand, it speeds up the quality improvement and efficiency improvement of consulting and operational projects, and the business structure and income ratio structure of main business are continuously optimized. By increasing the business collaboration between the front and back ends of the industrial chain and business units of different business segments, the company has solidly promoted cost reduction and efficiency improvement and deepened reforms, focused on the settlement and payment of old projects, accelerated the revitalization of assets in hand, and strengthened risk and cost control, so as to promote the recovery of key business indicators and ensure the stable development of the company’s operations.

  (1) Focus on high-quality orders in the industrial sector and achieve breakthroughs in overseas markets.

  In 2022, the company actively adjusted its business focus, concentrated its superior resources, vigorously developed its industrial sector business, and further optimized its main business structure. During the reporting period, the company added 3.148 billion yuan in sales contracts, including 1.554 billion yuan in industrial water treatment contracts, accounting for 49.37%; The contract amount of municipal environmental management is 696 million yuan, accounting for 22.11%; The operating contract amount is 513 million yuan, accounting for 16.29%; The contract value of professional technical services such as consulting and testing was 219 million yuan, accounting for 6.96%. The overall quality of new orders and orders in hand was significantly improved, which laid a good foundation for subsequent revenue conversion and project payment. During the reporting period, the company and its subsidiaries participated in the bidding of about 332 projects, and about 214 projects won the bid, with a winning rate close to 64.46%, which fully reflected the company’s market competitiveness and sustainable operation ability.

  As the core business of the company, the industrial sector takes selling equipment and providing technical services as its main business model, and its service areas cover industries such as papermaking, food, pharmaceuticals, semiconductors, chemicals and textiles. During the reporting period, the company relied on its leading edge in the field of industrial pollution control, such as waste water resource utilization and ultra-low emission key technologies, and the core technology of chlorine dioxide preparation system, and intensified the development of industrial environmental governance and pulp clean bleaching market at home and abroad. Four monomer orders of more than 100 million yuan and 26 monomer orders of more than 10 million yuan were successively signed, such as "Shouguang Meilun Chemical Pulp Factory General Contract for Chlorine Dioxide Preparation", "A Complete Equipment Supply and Technical Service Contract for Trichloroisocyanuric Acid", "A Supply Contract for 100t/d Comprehensive Chlorine Dioxide Preparation Project" and "A Complete Purchase Contract for 200,000 m3 /d Sewage Treatment Equipment". The industrial water treatment order was 1.554 billion yuan in the whole year, compared with the same period of last year.

  Up to now, the company’s supply orders for handicraft equipment are about 2.286 billion yuan (including winning the bid), including overseas orders of 1.412 billion yuan. The main customers of such orders are leading papermaking enterprises at home and abroad. In the field of industrial water treatment and clean production of pulp drifting, the company basically achieved full coverage in Southeast Asia and maintained a high market share. At the same time, it focused on the North American and South American markets, and the layout in Russia, Turkey and other markets also achieved results one after another, further enhancing its overseas market share. In the future, the company will continue to focus on the main business of industrial environmental governance, continuously enhance the market share and industry influence at home and abroad, form an industrial cluster of industrial wastewater treatment, large-scale chlorine dioxide preparation and other chemicals production, and achieve near-zero industrial emissions, consolidate the leading position of domestic industrial pollution control industry, expand the market share of overseas industries, and further increase the business volume of industrial sectors and the proportion of business income in the company.

  (II) Comprehensively promote project settlement and payment collection, and continuously optimize the business structure.

  Actively promoting project settlement and payment collection is one of the most important annual business tasks of the company. In 2022, the company realized a sales rebate of 2.119 billion yuan, an increase of 11.23% year-on-year, and the rebate work achieved substantial results. During the reporting period, the company actively recommended the examination and approval of project settlement, and completed the completion and acceptance of 61 projects throughout the year, involving an effective contract amount of 2.298 billion yuan; 77 projects were submitted for review, with a total amount of 2.282 billion yuan; 90 projects (including process audit reports) have been approved, with an amount of 1.477 billion yuan, and the follow-up company will strive to make greater breakthroughs in the final settlement of old projects. Secondly, we will continue to strengthen the collection of old projects, give full play to the functions of special classes for collection of old projects, introduce incentive measures for collection of old projects, and incorporate the collection of old projects into the assessment indicators of business units. In 2022, nearly 900 million yuan was collected from old projects, which was significantly improved compared with previous years. Thirdly, with the double optimization of order structure and quality, the efficiency of industrial project equipment payment and project progress payment has been improved. With the PPP project of water operation gradually entering the stage of commercial operation, the project company has achieved relatively stable income, and the annual operating return reached 277 million yuan, showing an increasing trend year by year, which strengthened the company’s hematopoietic capacity. In addition, for projects with long aging, large amount and high payment difficulty,By actively planning and actively communicating with the owners to replace the payment with high-quality projects or assets, establishing a legal litigation mechanism for sending and receiving letters, directly linking the payment with the performance appraisal of senior executives and business divisions, and matching different incentive policies for accounts receivable with different aging, the company has taken many measures to comprehensively promote the payment work.

  During the reporting period, the company further optimized the structure of orders in hand and the quality of newly signed orders. The orders in hand and newly signed orders are mainly EP, EPC and professional technical service orders, and most of them are projects with strong livelihood attributes such as industrial water treatment, municipal pipe network sewage treatment plant construction and water operation, which have strong payment ability, short cycle and guaranteed cash return. Secondly, actively adjust the income structure of main business, change the project implementation mode, further reduce the proportion of project income, and increase the proportion of equipment sales income and operating income. Third, continue to sort out and optimize the existing PPP projects and franchise projects, further improve the overall quality of the company’s PPP business, and gradually withdraw some projects that are ambiguous, or cannot be implemented or put into operation for a long time due to government reasons, further optimize the company’s business and debt structure, and reduce the financial pressure. Up to now, the company has withdrawn from seven PPP and franchise projects by means of equity transfer, asset transfer or changing the implementation mode, and signed the Agreement on Early Termination of Human Settlements Improvement Project in Chengjiang County, Yunnan Province with the government and the consortium leader. On the premise of ensuring the settlement and payment of the project funds, the company withdrew from Chengjiang Human Settlements PPP Project as a project shareholder and recovered the investment of 83,361,800 yuan. Fourth, the project operation was solidly promoted. During the reporting period, the company realized operating income of 672,917,500 yuan, up by 11.18% year-on-year. Up to now, the company has officially entered 23 franchise projects for commercial operation;Eight franchise projects entering the trial operation stage; 18 solid waste (integrated sanitation) operation projects; There are 5 terminal operation projects for sludge treatment and soil disposal. With the sanitation, oily sludge treatment and PPP projects undertaken by the company gradually entering the operation stage, the scale of operating assets will continue to expand, and the continuous and stable operating income and cash flow will further enhance the company’s hematopoietic function.

  (C) actively expand the sub-sectors and further deepen the industrial layout.

  As new energy vehicles enter a new stage of rapid development, power batteries will usher in the peak period of scrapping, and the demand for power battery reuse and recycling business is gradually increasing. Relying on the national enterprise technology center, Guangxi pilot research base for the transformation of scientific and technological achievements in environmental protection technology and equipment, the company has played a leading role in the research and development of industrial wastewater and solid hazardous waste treatment technology and equipment, and has formed a core technology system for comprehensive utilization of waste lithium batteries with independent intellectual property rights through small-scale and industrial tests. After deliberation and approval by the company’s board of directors, it is agreed that Keqing Environment, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the company, will be the main body of project implementation, and invest in a new 20,000-ton/year comprehensive utilization project of waste lithium batteries, with a total investment of about 141 million yuan. If the project is successfully implemented, it will help the company to further expand the solid waste treatment business segment, deepen the industrial layout, enhance the company’s industrial position and comprehensive competitiveness in the field of environmental protection, and help the company to thoroughly implement the national strategic deployment requirements of "carbon neutrality" and "peak carbon dioxide emissions", which is in line with the company’s long-term development strategy.

  During the reporting period, the company successively signed cooperation framework agreements with Dongfeng Liuzhou Automobile Co., Ltd., Guangxi Automobile Group Co., Ltd., Liuzhou Guoxuan Battery Co., Ltd., the holding company of () Co., Ltd., and PT.YONG QING INDUSTRY(INDONESIA) of Indonesia, aiming at integrating superior resources and jointly promoting in-depth cooperation in the field of waste power battery recycling, so as to obtain good social benefits and return on investment. The signing of the above cooperation framework agreement will help the company to promote the industrialization transformation of basic research results, further expand the subdivision business in the field of solid waste treatment, and generate synergistic benefits with the company’s existing solid waste treatment and disposal sector.

  Considering the changes in the hazardous waste disposal market in the region and the customer’s demand, in order to effectively revitalize the project assets, it was approved by the second extraordinary shareholders’ meeting in 2022 that Keqing Environment, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the company, was allowed to carry out technical transformation on some facilities and equipment of the "Beibu Gulf Resource Recycling Project". On the basis of using the original equipment of the physicochemical treatment workshop, the original physicochemical treatment workshop was transformed into a resource utilization workshop with its own funds or self-raised funds, and 20,000 tons/year of equipment for resource utilization of electrolytic aluminum overhaul slag was added. Guangxi is a province rich in aluminum resources. As one of the few hazardous waste disposal enterprises with the qualification to dispose of overhaul slag in the region, Keqing Environment can quickly respond to the market demand, undertake the related business of overhaul slag disposal and resource utilization, and tap new profit growth points for the company.

  (4) Pay attention to both management efficiency and quality, and comprehensively promote cost reduction and efficiency improvement.

  Under the economic downturn and the pressure of performance, the company achieved cost reduction and efficiency improvement by reducing management costs, strengthening project dynamic cost control, optimizing organizational structure and personnel, and revitalizing hand assets. In terms of moving forward the risk port, we focused on strengthening pre-bid risk management and control, strengthening contract review around key business indicators, establishing and improving the project kick-off meeting procedures and project leader mechanism, and the quality of landing projects has been significantly improved. In terms of expenses, the company strictly controls the company’s payment-to-receipt ratio by means of controllable management of expenses linked to sales revenue or new orders, so as to ensure that the cash flow remains stable. In terms of project cost control, we started to promote the comprehensive budget mechanism, further strengthened the budget management, cost control, procurement control and cash flow audit of the project, and carried out the whole process tracking control of the project implementation. On the premise of ensuring that the performance and quality of equipment are not affected, the company has achieved cost reduction and efficiency improvement by optimizing equipment selection and material selection, adjusting equipment structure and improving production technology. In terms of improving management efficiency, the company takes the market, product, value and service as the main line, strengthens the linkage relationship among industry, specialty, region and customer, reconstructs the functional structure, and integrates resources and business of the business unit. In terms of information platform construction, the I8P project management system was officially launched, and the data integration and penetration of project information management, contract management, supply chain management, fund management and budget management were initially realized, and the project life cycle management level was improved.Comprehensively strengthen the response speed and management accuracy of the company’s operations. Strictly implement the performance appraisal of all employees, and establish a hierarchical appraisal system for business objectives and key tasks; According to the change of business form, on the basis of last year’s talent inventory, we will promote the work of personnel quota, quota and post, and investigate and optimize the employees who are incompetent and have poor performance through the optimization measures such as merging branches and implementing regional joint office; Further broaden the channels for talent promotion, promote the competitive recruitment mechanism for management cadres, provide an open, fair and just platform for more outstanding talents, and release organizational vitality.

Comprehensive utilization and development of water resources With the expansion of the number and scale of industrial parks and the improvement of industrial wastewater treatment standards, the comprehensive water treatment business in industrial parks will have a huge market space. Relying on its own core technology and engineering project experience, while continuously consolidating the leading position of wastewater treatment in sugar and paper industries, the company continues to maintain its core competitive advantages in the fields of anaerobic treatment of high-concentration organic wastewater and advanced treatment of refractory wastewater, preparation technology and system integration of clean and bleached chlorine dioxide in pulp and paper making, focusing on equipment manufacturing and vigorously expanding the wastewater treatment market in other industries such as semiconductor, pharmaceutical, chemical, textile and food.

  (3) Focus on sewage treatment projects in villages and towns.

  Treating rural sewage well is of great significance for improving the water source environment in China, promoting the construction of beautiful countryside and enhancing the happiness of rural people. In January 2021, the National Development and Reform Commission and other ten departments jointly issued the Guiding Opinions on Promoting the Reuse of Sewage Resources (No.13 [2021] of the Development and Reform Commission), which made important arrangements for comprehensively promoting the reuse of sewage resources. According to the opinion, by 2025, the national sewage collection efficiency will be significantly improved, the sewage treatment capacity of county towns and cities will basically meet the needs of local economic and social development, and the sewage treatment in water-sensitive areas will basically be upgraded; The utilization rate of reclaimed water in water-deficient cities at or above the prefecture level in China has reached more than 25%, and that in Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei has reached more than 35%; The reuse of industrial water, livestock manure and the utilization of fishery tail water have been significantly improved; The policy system and market mechanism of sewage resource utilization have been basically established. By 2035, a systematic, safe, environmentally friendly and economical pattern of sewage resource utilization will be formed. The company has developed a series of advanced and applicable products and technologies such as low-concentration denitrification and high-efficiency denitrification light filter, MCO, MCI reactor series products, high-efficiency magnetic separation system, integrated SBR reactor, etc. around urban and rural environmental governance, and will continue to develop and optimize products and technologies that meet market demand. Intensify efforts to expand water investment, construction and operation, urban water supply and drainage integration, reclaimed water reuse, urban inland river and black and odorous water treatment, sponge city construction, river basin water ecological restoration and other projects.

  (4) Optimize the light asset business and actively promote the innovation of business model.

  The company maintains the competitive advantage of the whole environmental protection industry chain, concentrates resources to consolidate the industry position of environmental services such as environmental assessment, consulting, testing, design and sanitation in Guangxi, Guangdong and Hunan markets, maintains the steady growth of business, and at the same time benchmarks the business model of similar enterprises to improve the profitability of the project. The company has changed from pursuing volume to pursuing quality, gradually reducing the proportion of engineering projects, shifting its business focus to high-quality EPC projects and equipment sales projects with profit as the guide, and unswervingly taking the road of light assets, thus achieving the "four reductions" goal of reducing capital occupation, reducing the accumulation of accounts receivable, reducing financing costs and reducing the loss of bad debts.

  (5) Further expand the market of solid waste treatment and disposal.

  During the "Fourteenth Five-Year Plan" period, it is more urgent to comprehensively improve the efficiency of resource utilization around the theme of promoting high-quality development. Domestic waste treatment, industrial solid waste treatment, hazardous waste treatment, construction waste treatment and other businesses set sail again. Judging from the performance of several sub-fields, China’s solid waste treatment industry is showing a brand-new development trend. With the horizontal expansion of the industrial chain of traditional sanitation enterprises and the vertical expansion of solid waste terminal disposal enterprises such as incineration, the competition of solid waste disposal projects has become increasingly fierce. Relying on the long-term accumulation of customer resources and related technical reserves in the field of water treatment, the company has developed key technologies and equipment such as harmless treatment of solid waste, recycling of resources, and disposal of solid hazardous waste through in-depth market development, so as to further expand the market of "harmless, reduced and recycled" disposal of solid waste.

  Emerging sub-sectors such as "waste-free cities", garbage sorting, smart sanitation, intelligent upgrading, and unmanned sanitation vehicles began to rise in the sanitation sector, and continued to attract the attention of the industry and capital at a high growth rate. The company is engaged in multi-field sanitation industry chain business, has built an intelligent integrated service system for urban and rural sanitation, and has successfully explored a comprehensive service model for operational cleaning and garbage collection, transportation, treatment and terminal disposal in urban and rural areas. In order to adapt to the rapid development of the sanitation market, the company focuses on the research and development of special vehicles and the improvement of equipment manufacturing production capacity, and creates a smart sanitation cloud platform and intelligent driving technology for the company; Strive to reach the advanced level of domestic sanitation industry in the development of special sanitation vehicles, intelligent control technology, new energy technology, smart cloud platform and intelligent manufacturing.

  At present, the company has successfully developed a complete set of technologies for harmless and resource-based treatment of overhaul slag. After applying the comprehensive treatment technology of the company’s overhaul slag, the harmless slag is identified as general industrial solid waste, which can truly "take off the hat" of hazardous waste and further utilize building materials as resources; The high-value carbon powder, fluorite balls and other products obtained by recycling waste cathode carbon blocks can meet the requirements of corresponding product standards, and can be used as raw materials for upstream and downstream industries such as refining and fluorine chemical industry, so as to realize multi-scene industrial application of resource products. As one of the few hazardous waste disposal enterprises in Guangxi, Keqing Environment, a subsidiary of the company, can quickly respond to the market demand, undertake the related business of overhaul slag disposal and resource utilization, and tap new profit growth points. New energy vehicles have been widely promoted and applied since 2013, and entered the accelerated growth stage in 2014, and they have been rapidly released since 2015. The New Energy Automobile Industry Development Plan (2021-2035) proposes that the proportion of new energy automobile sales in China will reach about 20% of new automobile sales in 2025, and the high production and sales of new energy vehicles will drive the loading capacity of power batteries to rise, and power batteries will face a large scale of retirement in the future. Relying on the national enterprise technology center, Guangxi pilot research base for the transformation of scientific and technological achievements in environmental protection technology and equipment, the company has played a leading role in the research and development of industrial wastewater and solid hazardous waste treatment technology and equipment, and has formed a core technology system for the comprehensive utilization of waste lithium batteries with independent intellectual property rights.The company will explore the recycling market of new energy power batteries, further expand the subdivision business in the field of solid hazardous waste treatment, and have a synergistic effect with the company’s existing solid hazardous waste treatment and disposal plate, which is in line with the company’s long-term development strategy and is conducive to the company’s in-depth implementation of the national strategic deployment requirements of "carbon neutrality" and "peak carbon dioxide emissions".

  (6) comprehensively enhance the service capability advantages of the whole industry chain.

  The company will continue to focus on water treatment, soil remediation, clean production, solid waste disposal and other main businesses, implement the strategic concept of "whole industry chain service", adhere to the Industry-University-Research cooperation model, promote the commercialization of research results, and constantly improve the one-stop environmental management service platform integrating environmental assessment, monitoring, testing, environmental sanitation, engineering consulting, design, research and development, equipment manufacturing, engineering construction, facility operation and investment and financing operation, so as to broaden the income sources.

  3, the future annual business plan

  (1) Maintain the advantages of traditional business, tap the potential in depth, strive for progress steadily and explore new performance growth.

  On the basis of maintaining the steady growth of traditional business, the company actively expands the industrial market (including the business of chemicals) and focuses on building the equipment manufacturing field. On the one hand, the internal industrial chain of the company develops in a coordinated and efficient way, improving the quality of products and services, reducing operating costs and achieving sustained growth in operating performance. On the other hand, we will gradually take petrochemical, food brewing and pharmaceutical as the main expansion direction, and actively lay out new performance growth points.

  (2) Expand and strengthen overseas business and actively deploy the global market.

  Focusing on the global strategic layout, the company continues to dig deep into the markets of Indonesia, India and the United States, and strive for more contracts. At the same time, it actively expands the markets of Russia, Southeast Asia and South America, further expands its overseas business and builds an influential international brand. While absorbing the technical experience of developed regions, it also further exports domestic advanced environmental protection treatment technologies and cooperates with international cutting-edge scientific research institutions to form an open, integrated and coordinated industrial innovation system. By building a North American R&D center, we will attract outstanding talents at home and abroad, focus on solving complex and systematic environmental problems, benchmark the international and domestic advanced level, select the right path, and concentrate on promoting major technological breakthroughs, thus providing a strong support for Bosch to lay out the global market.

  (3) Accelerate the transformation and upgrading of business operations and strive to create new growth points for performance.

  The company actively carries out the business of resource utilization of overhaul slag disposal and comprehensive utilization of power batteries. By adopting the core technical advantages of self-research, it opens up the closed loop of the high-priced metal industrial chain of "recycling of waste batteries-recycling of lithium and other high-priced metals-manufacturing products as battery raw materials", which can not only greatly improve the recovery rate and product purity of valuable metals in waste lithium batteries, but also realize near zero discharge of advanced treatment of wastewater. It can serve the resource utilization demand of waste lithium batteries outside the radiation zone in Guangxi, promote the sustainable development of Guangxi’s new energy automobile industry, form a closed-loop resource recycling of the power battery industry, and help the new energy to reduce carbon.

  (4) Pay attention to forward-looking basic research and realize efficient achievement transformation.

  Focusing on the key areas of environmental protection industry and future development, the company has built a high-level talent team and a high-level scientific research platform to lead forward-looking basic research and original innovation, achieve a major breakthrough in scientific research, and explore various ways to solve the bottleneck problem in applied basic research. The company pays attention to cultivating excellent R&D and management talents, popularizing advanced management experience and incentive mechanism, further stimulating innovation vitality, promoting the innovative development of "basic research, application development, achievement transformation and technology popularization", and constantly consolidating and enhancing the core competitiveness of enterprises.

  The above development strategy and business plan do not constitute the Company’s substantial commitment to any investors and related parties. Investors and related parties should keep sufficient risk awareness and understand the differences between plans, forecasts and commitments.

  4. Possible risks and countermeasures

  (1) Risk of continued decline in business performance

  In 2022, the company realized an operating income of 2,223,804,900 yuan, a year-on-year decrease of 16.29%; The net profit attributable to ordinary shareholders of listed companies was-448,723,700 yuan, a year-on-year decrease of 66,044,600 yuan, and the operating fundamentals were better than last year.

  In 2022, influenced by changes in the domestic economic environment and intensified competition in the industry, the company insisted on optimizing its business structure. YEATION strictly controlled the municipal engineering business, vigorously developed the industrial sector business, continuously increased the proportion of equipment sales revenue, and promoted the audit and settlement of completed projects. The order volume of the municipal engineering sector decreased, and the engineering output value of some completed projects was reduced, resulting in a year-on-year decline in engineering business income. Although the orders for the industrial sector increased rapidly, most of the industrial orders signed in 2022 were still under implementation due to the volume of the project and the implementation cycle, and the acceptance and handover work could not be completed within the reporting period and turned into output value. Under the comprehensive influence, the income scale of the company’s main business declined. Secondly, according to the requirements of accounting standards and internal control system, the company conducted impairment tests on all kinds of assets, and made individual provision for impairment losses on the accounts receivable of old municipal project customers with obvious signs of impairment and the inventory of engineering projects that were stopped due to abnormal reasons and the construction period was delayed. In the whole year, the company made provision for impairment losses of all kinds of assets of RMB104,124,200. To sum up, the main reasons for the company’s operating performance loss in 2022 are the decline in income scale and the provision of some asset impairment losses.

  In the future, if there are unfavorable factors such as shrinking downstream market demand, intensified industry competition and rising operating costs, or if the company fails to consolidate and enhance its competitive advantage in the market and its market development ability is insufficient, the growth rate of its revenue and profit will decrease, and there may also be a risk that its performance will continue to decline.

  The company continued to improve internal control, strengthen financial and capital operation control, and strengthen the refined management of costs and budgets to promote the continuous improvement of the company’s operating quality and the steady recovery of operating benefits; By adopting the method of system supplemented by process control, we will strengthen the supervision of pre-bid control, project establishment, target cost calculation and procurement plan, take project profit as the core assessment element, deepen the relationship between benefit and performance assessment, and further promote the risk control of the whole project life cycle.

  (2) risk of debt caused by the high debt scale and asset-liability ratio.

  By the end of 2022, the company’s debt scale was 9,450,636,000 yuan, and its asset-liability ratio (consolidated statement) was 78.76%, which was at a high level. During the reporting period, in addition to its own business accumulation, the company mainly obtained the funds needed for operation through debt financing. The company is in the process of development. In the future, with the increase of the number of projects undertaken by the company and the amount of orders, the company’s demand for working capital will also increase. If there is a shortage of working capital in the future operation of the company, it will bring certain risk of debt to the company.

  In order to cope with the impact of high asset-liability ratio on the company and ensure the smooth implementation of the project and business development, the company has formulated an efficient fund utilization plan, built a fund management and control platform and actively expanded various financing channels; Secondly, by strengthening supplier management and implementing centralized procurement, we can control the cost of raw materials, improve the R&D and processing capacity of core equipment products, and optimize the structure of production personnel to improve the gross profit margin and enhance the profitability of the company. At the same time, through self-management accumulation, increasing the collection of accounts receivable, making full use of high-quality projects to obtain special government subsidies and tax incentives, the sources of funds are continuously expanded, the cost of funds is saved, the working capital demand of the company is ensured, and the possible risk of debt is effectively reduced.

  (3) Impairment risk caused by large balance of accounts receivable and contract assets.

  At the end of 2020, 2021 and 2022, the book value of the company’s accounts receivable and contract assets totaled 2,673,775,500 yuan, 2,745,739,400 yuan and 2,981,610,800 yuan respectively, accounting for 51.00%, 55.48% and 64.24% of the total current assets at the end of the current period.

  The balance of the company’s accounts receivable and contract assets is relatively large, mainly due to the continuous expansion of the company’s business scale. Due to the characteristics of phased collection, and the company’s customers are mainly large and medium-sized enterprises, listed companies, state-owned enterprises and government units in the industry, the payment procedures are more complicated, and some customers’ ability to pay is reduced, which leads to a large degree of capital occupation of the company by accounts receivable and contract assets, which makes the company face certain credit impairment risks. If the corresponding funds cannot be recovered in time according to the contract, it will have an adverse impact on the company’s operating conditions and cash flow.

  The main engineering projects involved in the company’s accounts receivable and contract assets are in normal construction state or in the process of completion acceptance, audit settlement, etc., and the progress of some projects may be delayed due to economic downturn, land acquisition by local government and adjustment of implementation methods. In the future, if the company’s major engineering projects can’t be constructed normally, completed acceptance, audited settlement, etc., or there are other major uncertainties in further progress, it may lead to the risk that the company’s accounts receivable and contract assets can’t be recovered and a large amount of bad debt reserve is accrued, which in turn leads to the risk that the company will face a decline in operating performance.

  On the one hand, the company regards payment collection as one of the most important business tasks of the year, matches different incentive policies for accounts receivable with different aging, and directly links payment collection with the performance appraisal of executives and various business divisions according to the newly formulated assessment method, so as to comprehensively strengthen the management of accounts receivable recovery; At the same time, we will focus on projects with strong payment ability and guaranteed financing, regard project payment as an important evaluation index for bidding selection, strengthen contract management and risk control, and ensure that the contract is fulfilled as promised. On the other hand, after years of great-leap-forward development, the company has achieved a certain industry position in a number of environmental protection sub-sectors. The company will adhere to sustainable high-quality development, continue to optimize its business model and order structure in the face of complex and changeable market environment and competitive pressure in the industry, intensify efforts to promote project settlement and payment of old projects, accelerate the franchise projects to enter commercial operation, and actively eliminate the risk of business performance decline that may be caused by credit impairment and asset impairment.

  (4) Risk of 4)PPP business model

  PPP projects usually have the characteristics of large investment, long construction and operation period, which makes the company have certain risks in implementing PPP business, such as macroeconomic risks, policy environmental risks, market environmental risks, legal change risks, financial risks, financing risks, construction risks, operational risks, risks that the overall project progress is not as expected, risks that the budget and settlement are greatly deviated, and risks that the handling capacity in the operation stage is not as expected, which may ultimately affect the feasibility and actual economic benefits of the company’s PPP projects.

  During the reporting period, the company did not undertake new PPP projects. For the PPP project in hand, the company has set up a special working class, on the one hand, it actively promotes the project implementation, audit settlement and commercial operation, on the other hand, it further optimizes the operation management of the project in operation, enhances the profitability of the project, and lays the foundation for obtaining a stable return on investment in the future; Thirdly, the PPP projects in hand were further sorted out, and the PPP project evaluation and analysis report, PPP project investment income target tracking table, PPP project exit work plan tracking table and fixed assets investment realization plan tracking table were formulated, etc., and the status of PPP projects was dynamically analyzed, and the exit or transfer negotiations were initiated for projects that were difficult to advance. By the end of the reporting period, seven PPP project exit agreements had been signed.

  (5) Risk of intensified market competition

  In 2020, 2021 and 2022, the comprehensive gross profit margin of the company’s main business was 27.33%, 15.59% and 11.11% respectively. As a pillar industry of the national economy, the state has paid more and more attention to the development of environmental protection industry. Especially after entering the "14 th Five-Year Plan" period, the scale of environmental protection industry has steadily expanded, driven by favorable policies and accelerated release of orders, and industrial investment has been continuously enhanced.

  While the environmental protection industry market presents great potential, the market competition is also increasing. In the market competition with environmental protection enterprises at home and abroad, if the company cannot maintain its advantages in technological innovation, product cost control and after-sales tracking service in the future, the market competition risk faced by the company will further increase.

  In order to cope with the complex and changeable market environment and increasingly fierce market competition and ensure the smooth realization of the company’s business strategy, the company insists on building its core competitiveness, actively explores foreign markets based on the domestic market, enhances its marketing ability and technical service support, and enhances its ability to cope with market changes.

  (6) the risk of technology being overtaken

  In 2020, 2021 and 2022, the company’s R&D expenses were 193,026,300 yuan, 200,044,300 yuan and 170,669,500 yuan respectively. The company invested heavily in technology research and development. If the company cannot continue to maintain its advantages in technological innovation in the future, it will face the risk of being eliminated or overtaken, which will lead to the company being at a disadvantage in the future market competition.

  In terms of technological innovation, the company will continue to strengthen R&D innovation and achievement transformation, expand key technology reserves, promote the application of scientific research achievements in production, actively build an industry-leading technology brands, and provide strong technical support and services for the development of the company’s business market.

  (7) Risk of production safety

  The environmental comprehensive treatment project undertaken by the company usually involves equipment manufacturing, assembly and integration, transportation and installation, project site construction and other links, which are dangerous and easily affected by various uncertain factors or unpredictable factors. Therefore, in the process of project implementation, the company has certain project implementation safety risks.

  In order to scientifically prevent the safety risks in the project implementation process, the company implemented standardized management of on-site safety production, implemented occupational health and safety management system, applied PDCA cycle management mode, carried out hazard factor identification, and conducted closed-loop management of potential safety production hazards, effectively reducing all kinds of safety production risks, promoting the continuous improvement of on-site safety management level of the project, and ensuring the smooth and rapid implementation of the project.

  (8) Environmental risks

  In recent years, the national pollution emission standards have been continuously improved, environmental testing indicators and requirements have been continuously increased, and the daily supervision of environmental protection departments has also been continuously strengthened. The company mainly conducts business by undertaking environmental protection projects or investing, constructing and operating environmental protection projects. In daily operation, there are risks in environmental protection such as air pollution, harmful substances, sewage and solid waste discharge, and noise pollution.

  Although the company has taken a number of measures to avoid or minimize the potential adverse impact on the environment in the process of project construction and operation, there are still certain environmental protection risks in the actual production and operation process. If environmental pollution incidents occur, it may have a certain adverse impact on the company’s management, brand reputation and profitability.

  The company attaches great importance to the investigation and resolution of environmental risks, and has set up a professional operation team to formulate practical accident prevention measures for different types of projects, eliminate potential unsafe factors and management defects, continuously improve the emergency response capability of environmental emergencies and avoid major environmental incidents.

Can more than 20 animated films and summer movies highlight the encirclement of domestic animation?

  Beijing, July 16th (Yuan Xiuyue, Wang Xinyue), the client of Zhongxin. com, is different from last year’s summer file explosions, and the biggest winner of this year’s summer file will be animated movies. The reporter combed and found that this summer’s summer file gathered more than 20 animated films at home and abroad. At present, half of the top ten films at the box office are animated films.

  Then, under the encirclement of Spirited Away’s overseas animation such as The Lion King, Pet Secret 2 and Toy Story 4, can domestic animation stand out from the encirclement?

  The Lion King broke 400 million at the box office.

  The recent movie box office may explain the truth that there are still a few people who will pay for their feelings. Miyazaki Hayao’s Spirited Away was re-released in less than a month, with a box office of nearly 500 million. The live-action version of "The Lion King" was released for 5 days, and the box office exceeded 400 million. According to the forecast of Cat’s Eye Movie Professional Edition, the final box office of The Lion King may be nearly 1 billion.

  If Spirited Away’s box office is that the audience "makes up for the movie tickets that have been owed for many years", then The Lion King is a reconstruction of memories.

  The plot and music have not changed, but as Disney’s biggest emotional card, The Lion King has attracted many people to revisit it.

  Some people also commented that the short board of the live-action version just can’t be as unconstrained and imaginative as animation. It is also considered that the performance of fake animals is not rich enough, "facial paralysis." Some people make fun of it, and Zhao Zhongxiang’s dubbing is the "animal world".

  At present, the douban score of the live-action version of The Lion King is 7.5, which is much worse than the animated version of 9.0. However, it is not bad among several Disney animated films imported from China, second only to Fantasy Forest and Aladdin (7.8 points).

  After the Spring Festival in 2019, a Disney animated film will be released every other month. From Dumbo in March to Aladdin in May to The Lion King in July, there is the official Little Mermaid by Mulan. Disney’s plan to shoot a live-action version is in full swing, but at present, it seems that relying on IP is not easy.

  Two Hollywood classic IPS are both cold.

  Another recent American animated film, Pet Secret 2, is no better than its predecessor, with a box office of only 70 million yuan in the first week and only 130 million yuan at present.

  In 2016, this film, created by the original cast of Despicable Me, won 389 million box office in China, and also won the most profitable movie in Hollywood that year. It tells the story of pets fighting with each other when their owners are not at home.

  As a film that focuses on "selling cute", the narrative line of "Pet Secret 2" is more complicated, but it is not lacking in entertainment. Many people evaluate it as cute and interesting. However, some people think that the plot is young and old-fashioned, and it is not as good as the first one.

  It is not easy to "sell cute", and it is even harder to sell new ideas. When The Secret Life of Pets was released, some people once called it an animal version of Toy Story. This summer, the results of Toy Story 4 were not satisfactory.

  As a sequel, Toy Story 4 was produced with great care. It regrouped classic dubbing lineups such as Tom Hanks and tim allen, and 100,000 people scored 8.8 points in Douban. Some people commented that Toy Story 4 drew a satisfactory conclusion for this series.

  However, unlike the popularity of the North American market, the film earned only 199 million yuan at the domestic box office. Some people think that this is because the release schedule hit Spirited Away. Some experts also commented that the series of movies are easy to make the audience feel aesthetic fatigue.

  The two Hollywood classic IPS are both cold. It seems that it is no longer tried and tested to "lean on" IP and "hold" the box office.

  Nezha vs. Full-time Master

  In the summer of 2015, "The Return of the Great Sage of Journey to the West" emerged as a dark horse, relying on the word-of-mouth fermentation of "tap water" and made a box office of 956 million. Some people called it a phenomenal work of domestic animation in the past 10 years.

  More importantly, it broke the stereotype of domestic animation "being young". After that, some good works appeared in domestic animation, such as Big Fish Begonia, Great Protector, White Snake Origin and so on, but none of them can become phenomenal works.

  Recently, several domestic animation "Seed Players" will be released soon, including Ne Zha’s "The Peak Glory of Full-time Masters", "Future Machine City" and "The Battle of Luo Xiaohei".

  Similar to The Return of the Great Sage, Ne Zha also draws on the traditional stories of China. However, its adaptation is bolder. Nezha Jr. wears dark circles and has a perverse image.

  In the movie, Nezha is not a young hero, but "born as a demon", but has a heart to be a hero. Only by struggling with fate can you become a hero. Jiaozi, the director, once said that the theme of the film is "Breaking stereotypes and reversing fate". Recently, the film opened the first round of screening, almost full, and won a lot of praise.

  Its most direct competitor is The Peak Glory of Full-time Masters, which is adapted from Internet IP. The film tells the story of Ye Xiu, a professional e-sports player with a great god level, leading the team to overcome difficulties and reach the peak of glory.

  Although it is not as popular as Nezha’s "national IP", there are novels and cartoons ahead, and more than 160,000 people still mark them as "want to read".

  It is worth mentioning that there will be fresh faces in the summer file, such as Future Machine City, which was bought by Netflix for overseas distribution rights, and the big movie Luo Xiaohei, a high-scoring animated short film.

  Japanese national IP accompanies China animation market.

  In recent years, Japanese animated films have been in a state of accompanying running in China. Except for "Your Name" in Makoto Shinkai, which has a box office of 570 million, and nearly 500 million in Spirited Away, the rest are carnivals of a few people in China, which failed to continue its box office miracle in Japan.

  The Night of Destiny — — The Cup of Heaven II: Butterfly of Destiny was released for 5 days, with a box office of over 25 million and a douban score of 7.9. The film is based on the third story line in the Japanese adventure game Night of Destiny, which is called the top IP of ACG (animation) circle.

  However, some people have commented that this film is very unfriendly to ordinary audiences. If you don’t understand the world view and story line of this series, I’m afraid you won’t understand it.

  Another Japanese "God-class" IP "Game Life Zero" will soon be released in China. The film is adapted from the light novel of the same name written by Mimiya You. It tells the story that six thousand years ago, for the hope of human survival, Hubby, a girl from Kikai, joined hands with human leader Ke to launch the battle of "love". As early as two years ago, the film was released in Japan and performed well at the box office.

  In addition, cartoons for young children are still an indispensable part of the summer file, and "Sail 7: Crazy Machine City" and "GG Bond: The Incredible World" all arrive as scheduled. Last year, the movie "Sail 6" exceeded 100 million at the box office, and "GG Bond: The Incredible World" was recently released, with a box office of 30 million. (End)
