Dow's technology improves the ternary material industry chain -Lithium - Ion Battery Equipment

Recently, Dow Technologies announced that the company plans to purchase 49% of the shares of Guangdong Jiana Energy Technology Co., Ltd. jointly held by Yuanwei Investment and New Hualian Holding with a transaction price of 1.323 billion yuan; It is proposed to issue shares to Wang Lianchen and Dong Angang, and pay cash to Wei Chen to purchase 45% of the equity of Qingdao Haoxin New Energy Technology Co., Ltd. held by them in total. The transaction price is RMB 180 million. After the completion of this transaction, the product line expanded downstream to ternary precursors and conductive agents. The listed companies have formed a more comprehensive industrial chain in the field of lithium battery materials.

It is understood that Dow Technologies is mainly engaged in the production, R&D and sales of inorganic non-metallic materials. Its products are divided into two categories: building ceramic glaze materials and new energy battery materials. Since 2016, Dow Technologies has actively laid out the new energy materials industry, investing and holding the target companies Qingdao Haoxin and Jiana Energy successively. So far, the listed companies have formed a more comprehensive industrial chain in the field of lithium battery materials, and there is strong synergy in technology, market, etc. between the listed companies and their holding subsidiaries.(Lithium - Ion Battery Equipment)

Dow Technologies said that the target company, Jiana Energy, as an important supplier of cobalt products in China, has been focusing on the production of cobalt salt products through hydrometallurgy process for more than 10 years since its establishment, and has expanded its product line downstream to ternary precursors through technology accumulation and product research and development. The target company, Qingdao Haoxin, is an important conductive agent manufacturer in China, which is in a leading position in the conductive agent industry. Its products are mainly supplied to large domestic battery manufacturers.

According to the semi annual report forecast released by Dow Technologies, the ceramic material business of the company has developed steadily, and the business of various sectors of new energy materials has grown rapidly. It is estimated that the profit in the first half of 2018 will be 138 million to 158 million yuan.

Editor's point of view: Previously, Dow Technologies held 55% of the equity of Qingdao Haoxin through capital increase and holding. Qingdao Haoxin's main products include graphene conductive agent, carbon nanotube conductive agent and other products, of which graphene conductive agent is mainly used for lithium iron phosphate positive electrode, carbon nanotube conductive agent is mainly used for ternary positive electrode, and its main downstream customers are BYD and Guoxuan Hi Tech.

With the continuous improvement of power battery energy density requirements, the establishment of the mainstream trend of ternary positive electrode has driven the rapid release of the company's carbon nanotube conductive agent. In the first quarter of 2018, Qingdao Haoxin signed sales contracts with BYD and Guoxuan Hi Tech totaling 30.91 million yuan and 75.94 million yuan respectively, an increase of 145.7% year on year, mainly due to the sharp increase in the demand for ternary materials, which led to the sharp increase in the sales of carbon nanotube conductive agent.

Through this transaction, Dow's technology has realized the wholly-owned holding of Jiana Energy and Qingdao Haoxin, which is conducive to further enhancing the control of Dow's technology over subsidiaries, improving the decision-making efficiency and overall management efficiency of listed companies, and ensuring the effective integration of resources and technology and the smooth progress of key projects. Secondly, through this layout, Dow's technology has expanded the industrial chain to cobalt materials and ternary precursor materials, and improved the front-end cathode material industrial chain system.
