three,Fundamental Analysis of Underlying Stocks

1. NCA precursor leader, in-depth cooperation with high-quality customers to help development

The main business of Fangyuan Co., Ltd. is the research and development, production and sales of lithium battery ternary cathode material precursors and nickel battery cathode materials.Its research and development products are the core upstream materials for the manufacture of lithium batteries and nickel batteries, and the downstream of the industrial chain faces the fields of new energy vehicle power batteries, power tools, energy storage equipment and electronic products.

NCA leader, the layout of industrial chain integration.From 2018 to 2020, the export volume of the company’s NCA ternary precursors ranked first in China. At the same time, a complete industrial chain has been established from nickel-cobalt raw materials to ternary cathode material precursors and nickel battery cathode materials. In 2021 and the first half of 2022, Fangyuan’s NCA operating income will be 1.326 billion yuan and 763 million yuan, accounting for 62.10% and 80.57% of the total operating income, respectively.

The demand for NCA ternary precursors is increasing, and the industry is booming.Ternary precursors are key components of products such as new energy vehicles and power batteries. With the spread of the concept of “carbon neutrality”, the demand for ternary cathode materials for new energy raw materials is also increasing. Shipments of cathode materials increased from 87,000 tons to 430,000 tons from 2017 to 2021, and shipments in the first half of 2022 increased by 51% year-on-year.

The company has in-depth cooperation with high-quality customers, and the top five customers account for more than 80% of the revenue.The sales revenue of Fangyuan’s top five customers accounted for 83.51%, of which Panasonic was the main customer, accounting for 44.49%. At the same time, the company began to purchase ternary precursor raw materials from Panasonic in 2021, and Panasonic has also become the first supplier of Fangyuan shares, accounting for 37.26% of the purchase amount. The mutual transmission of the two products is conducive to the stability of sales channels and raw material sources. .

2. The net profit attributable to the parent has improved month-on-month, and the gross profit margin has room for recovery

In 2022, the revenue will maintain the growth level, and the net profit attributable to the parent company will be improved.In 2021, benefiting from the boom in the downstream new energy vehicle industry, driving the rapid development of the power battery industry, the market demand for ternary precursors is strong, the company has successfully expanded downstream customers, sales of ternary precursor products have increased, and operating income has increased by 108.46% year-on-year. In 2022, due to the repeated impact of the epidemic and the uncertainty of the price of LME nickel futures on the London Metal Exchange brought about by the “Russian-Ukrainian conflict”, the upstream raw material procurement of enterprises and the demand of downstream customers will be affected to a certain extent, and the growth rate of operating income will decrease. An increase of 4.76%.

The net profit attributable to the parent company of the company fell sharply in the first half of 2022, down 95% year-on-year.The main reason is that during the reporting period, the share-based payment amortization of the equity incentive plan implemented in 2021 increased by 41 million yuan, and the gross profit margin decreased due to comprehensive factors such as the increase in the price of main auxiliary materials such as sulfuric acid liquid alkali. In the second quarter of 2022, the net profit attributable to the parent company was 50 million yuan, which was an improvement from -02 million yuan in the first quarter.

As raw material prices fall, gross profit margins may pick up.The company’s gross profit margin from 2019 to the first half of 2022 continued to decline, from 20.28% to 11.19%. The main reason for the decline in gross profit margin in 2021 is due to the increase in the price of raw materials such as LME nickel and cobalt, and the accompanying increase in production costs. At the same time, the two-way procurement cooperation with Panasonic starting in 2021 will also have a negative impact on the gross profit margin of NCA ternary precursors. In the future, the reduction in the reliance on raw material procurement and the decline in raw material prices may bring about a recovery in gross profit margin.

3.Proper cost control and good cash flow

In 2021, due to the expansion of the company’s scale, the increase in personnel compensation, business promotion, and R&D investment will lead to an increase in expenses during the period, of which administrative expenses/selling expenses and R&D expenses will increase by 30.58%, 42.36% and 25.21% year-on-year respectively. However, the expansion of the company’s scale has brought about a scale effect, and the operating income has increased by 108.46% year-on-year, resulting in a steady decline in various expense ratios.

The company’s solvency has declined, and its cash flow situation has improvedIn the first quarter of 2019-2022, the company’s current ratios were 2.73, 2.12, 1.6, and 1.44, respectively, and the quick ratios were 1.35, 0.94, 0.73, and 0.55, both of which declined and were lower than the ratios of 2:1 and 1:1, respectively , the company’s overall solvency has declined.

To sum up, the current parity of Fangyuan convertible bonds is lower than the face value, and the value of pure bonds is lower. Fangyuan Co., Ltd. is a leading manufacturer of NCA cathode material precursors for lithium batteries in China. Based on the comprehensive utilization of non-ferrous metal resources, with modern separation technology and functional material preparation technology as the core, it produces NCA/NCM precursors and nickel battery cathode materials.
