90% of the business to achieve growth, two major businesses with a scale of 20 billion
According to CIMC's annual report information, the company's business is mainly divided into 10 categories, namely containers, road transport vehicles, energy, chemical and liquid food equipment, marine engineering, airport equipment, logistics services, finance, and production (the first 8 businesses were Known as the “eight big” business segment of CIMC), heavy trucks and other (mainly modular buildings, multimodal transport, etc.), the data shows that all businesses except marine engineering have achieved significant growth, which is in recent years. The best performance achieved in an international and domestic complex economic environment. Among them, the top three main business segments are more eye-catching, and the two major businesses have an output value of about 20 billion.
The most eye-catching is the container business. In 2016, due to the cyclical fluctuations in the shipping business, the global container demand fell to the bottom, but from the fourth quarter of the year, global trade drove the shipping market to recover, and the container entered the renewal cycle at the same time. The order volume has bottomed out, and the application of domestic environmentally friendly water-based paint has inhibited the increase of production capacity to some extent. The price of the box has also rebounded rapidly, and the market is better than expected. In 2017, CIMC's container sales exceeded 25 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 126%, and net profit was 1.46 billion, an increase of about 302%. The annual production and sales volume of containers continued to be the No. 1 in the global industry since 1996.
The cumulative sales of ordinary dry cargo containers of CIMC was 1,300,900 TEU (standard containers), an increase of approximately 123% year-on-year; the cumulative sales of refrigerated containers was 109,100 TEUs, an increase of approximately 37%. The land commercialization project also has a positive impact on the financial performance of the container business. The South China CIMC and the China Merchants Shekou, which is under the jurisdiction of the sector, received compensation of approximately 490 million yuan for the relocation compensation of the Taiziwan site.
The road transport vehicle business continued to maintain a high growth momentum in 2017, hitting a record high. The annual revenue exceeded 19.5 billion, an increase of about 33% year-on-year. It has historically become the second largest business segment of CIMC with a revenue of 20 billion yuan. . Net profit exceeded 1 billion yuan, an increase of approximately 32.8% year-on-year, and net profit increased by more than 30% for two consecutive years.
The growth of the vehicle business continues to benefit from the “global operations, local wisdom” operating strategy, which has established 25 production and R&D bases in China, North America, Europe and emerging markets, forming a series of ten series and more than 1,000 varieties. Car product line. The European and North American markets have better-than-expected revenues, and the recovery in some emerging markets has brought good returns to the business. The acquisition of Retlan, the UK's leading semi-trailer company, began to have a positive financial impact in 2016. The vehicle business sold 163,000 sets of special-purpose vehicle products throughout the year, of which semi-trailer products sold more than 120,000 units. According to the trailer sales of the global trailer “Global Trailor”, CIMC vehicles once again reelected the field. The world's first. It is reported that CIMC vehicles have been ranked first for four consecutive years. It is worth noting that in 2017, the domestic market continued to grow strongly due to the continuation of the policy of over-treatment and the increase of infrastructure projects. Only the semi-trailer CIMC domestic sales reached 66,000 units (sets), nearly 10,000 units. The cement mixer production and sales have once again reached the annual championship position.
The operating platform of the energy, chemical and liquid food equipment business, CIMC Enric's performance in 2017 has received much attention from the industry. The introduction of the national natural gas support policy and the vigorous promotion of the application of “coal to gas” have stimulated the substantial growth of natural gas demand in the domestic market, while Enric’s advantageous business mainly covers the storage and transportation equipment of the natural gas industry chain. Serve the country and export to Southeast Asia, Europe and the Americas. In 2016, Enric suffered a setback in the acquisition of Nantong Pacific (SOE), and in 2017, CIMC Enric not only achieved revenues of more than 11.8 billion, but also became the third 10 billion-sized segment of CIMC. , a year-on-year increase of nearly 27%, and as a restructuring investor, Enric has achieved a net profit of 474 million yuan after re-financing the SOE acquisition. The acquisition of SOE is very necessary in Enric's view. SOE's offshore advantages help it realize its strategic layout from land to sea, forming a sea-land integrated natural gas purification, liquefaction, storage and transportation equipment value chain. At the same time, this reorganization case also shaped the responsible corporate image of CIMC, which was unanimously affirmed by SOE employees and the Jiangsu Provincial Government, and was selected as “Top Ten Typical Cases of Jiangsu Province in 2017”.
CIMC Enric is also worthy of attention for its liquid food equipment business with a high degree of global operation. This business has formed two “Ziemann Holvrieka” and “Briggs” through the acquisition and integration of several well-known European companies. Well-known brands, beer, distilled liquor and other liquid food production equipment have the world's leading technical capabilities, and production plants are located in Europe and China. In addition, Enric's chemical equipment has seen a large increase in 2017, and the output of some special tanks has increased by nearly 50%. In May, Xinjiang first exported liquid chemicals to Europe through the “New Europe” (Xinjiang-Europe-Mediterranean) in Central Europe. The tank containers for this chemical were all manufactured by CIMC Enric.
Focusing on industrial development, various equipment manufacturing and service industries have many highlights
In addition to the top three main businesses, CIMC's other businesses also adhere to the direction of industrial development. The equipment manufacturing and service industries around logistics and energy have achieved a good growth in 2017.
Logistics service is the fourth business segment of CIMC, which accounts for more than 10% of its business. In 2017, its revenue was approximately RMB 8.2 billion, up 14.95% year-on-year.

However, due to the long-term downturn in international oil prices, the offshore industry in which it is located is still in the midst of a deep adjustment period in 2017, and CIMC's offshore business is still at a loss. However, according to the analysis of CIMC's annual report, offshore oil and gas investment has bottomed out at the end of 2016. Although investment did not finally reflect the procurement of products such as CIMC's ultra-deepwater drilling platform in 2017, the investment trend has rebounded. CIMC will eventually Benefit.
At the same time, CIMC Raffles of CIMC Offshore Engineering is also taking advantage of accumulated technology and construction advantages to extend horizontally and vertically to the offshore equipment field, and to join FLNG (floating LNG production and storage in the areas already involved).
