Fangda Carbon (600516)’s 2021 semi-annual board of directors’ management review content is as follows:
XNUMX. Description of the company’s industry and main business during the reporting period
The company’s industry is non-metallic mineral products. The company is mainly engaged in the production and sales of graphite and carbon products, lithium-ion battery anode materials, graphene and downstream products and other new materials. The main products are graphite electrodes, isostatic graphite, lithium ion battery anode materials, graphene masks, etc. Graphite electrodes are mainly used in iron and steel smelting; isostatic graphite is widely used in semiconductor, solar photovoltaic, mold processing, nuclear energy, metallurgy, petrochemical and many other fields. Large working capital investment, long production cycle, large investment in environmental protection costs, rising upstream raw material prices, shortage of high-quality raw materials, technical barriers, product supply capacity, quality stability, after-sales service and other factors have become the characteristics of the carbon industry. The competitive advantages of large-scale carbon companies with stronger strength and high-end product production capacity have become more obvious. From the perspective of industry environmental protection policies, the China Carbon Industry Association has issued the “T/ZGTS001—2019 Carbon Industry Air Pollution Emission Standard” in March 2019, which was officially implemented on September 1, 2019. The release of this standard means that the industry’s environmental protection requirements have become stricter, which will put pressure on the development of the industry. The company took the lead in drafting the above-mentioned “T/ZGTS001—2019 Carbon Industry Air Pollution Emission Standard”. At the same time, the company has invested a lot of money in environmental protection in recent years, making the company’s environmental protection and governance leading the forefront of its domestic counterparts. The national industrial policy is clearly directed to increase the proportion of electric furnace steel. With the increasing energy and environmental constraints, the conditions for the development of electric furnace steelmaking are gradually emerging. It is estimated that by 2030, social scrap steel resources can reach 400 million tons; then electric furnace steelmaking will enter a period of rapid development, and the proportion of electric furnace steel will exceed 20%. Electrodes, especially ultra-high-power graphite electrodes, will also gain further development space.
XNUMX. Discussion and analysis of operating conditions
During the reporting period, supported by policy guidance, foreign epidemics, complex and volatile international situations, and stricter environmental protection, commodity prices increased, and downstream market demand improved, the company’s graphite electrode products increased in volume and price compared with the same period last year, and the operating performance in the first half of the year was significant year-on-year increase. During the reporting period, the company’s total operating income reached RMB 2,364,170,600, a year-on-year increase of 44.57%; the net profit attributable to shareholders of the listed company was RMB 502,113,300, a year-on-year increase of 153.01%. In the first half of 2021, the company insisted on focusing on both epidemic prevention and control and production and operation, with sales as the driving force, flexibly adjusted product structure, in-depth promotion of industry and sector benchmarking and refined management, and promoted the goal of incremental efficiency increase. To achieve the goal, strive to promote the enterprise to achieve higher efficiency, higher quality and more competitive development. Significant changes in the company’s operating conditions during the reporting period, as well as events that have a significant impact on the company’s operating conditions during the reporting period and are expected to have a significant impact in the future
XNUMX. Possible risks
1. Operational risks With the expansion of the company’s business scale and the gradual increase in the volume of import and export trade business, factors such as international trade frictions, repeated epidemics, and slowdown in global economic growth may have an impact on the company’s import and export business and the company’s management model And the marketing operation mechanism puts forward higher requirements. If it cannot be adjusted in time to adapt to the above changes, the company will have certain operating risks. Response measures: guided by customer and market demand, scientifically coordinate production, supply and marketing, conform to the general trend of the “dual cycle” market, vigorously develop the domestic market, rationally regulate the supply of domestic and foreign markets, and maximize the company’s interests. 2. Industry capacity expansion risks. Enterprises in the industry will blindly resume production and expand production at a low level, which may result in overcapacity of some varieties, which will cause product price fluctuations and affect the company’s performance. In the face of industry risks, the company adheres to the quality policy of “improving corporate strength with scientific and technological innovation, and meeting customer needs with first-class products”, actively promotes key scientific research work, and does a good job of combining scientific research with large-scale production. At the same time, we will continue to promote refined management and adjust the product structure in accordance with the principle of optimal resource efficiency and the greatest contribution rate of products per ton to the company’s benefits, and improve the overall operating quality of the company’s production and operation. 3. Exchange rate risk Some of the company’s products are sold to the international market, and exchange rate fluctuations affect the company’s export volume and exchange losses. Response measures: Strengthen the collection and analysis of foreign exchange market information, keep abreast of foreign exchange market dynamics, timely adjust settlement currencies and settlement methods, introduce cross-border RMB settlement services, promote RMB-denominated settlement in some overseas markets, and actively carry out hedging services such as foreign exchange locks Carry out risk exposure management.
XNUMX. Analysis of core competitiveness during the reporting period
