NIO Manufacturing TL;DR (with currencies translated to USD)

Hey all,
Read through the 10-K filings and figured I would highlight the risk catalysts and manufacturing agreements NIO is currently involved with to give you a better idea of their output forecast and so you can research yourself as to whether or not they can be sustainable:
We have entered into an arrangement with Jianghuai Automobile Group Co., Ltd., or JAC, for manufacturing the ES8 for five years. In April 2019 and March 2020, we entered manufacturing cooperation agreements with JAC for the manufacture of the ES6 and the EC6, respectively.
The ES8 and ES6 are manufactured in partnership with JAC at its Hefei manufacturing plant. JAC is a major state-owned automobile manufacturer in China and it constructed such Hefei manufacturing plant for the production of the ES8 (with a modified production line for the ES6) and potentially other future vehicles with us.
we pay JAC for each vehicle produced on a per-vehicle basis monthly for the first three years.
In addition, for the first 36 months after the start of production, which commenced on April 10, 2018, to the extent the Hefei manufacturing plant incurs any operating losses, we have agreed to compensate JAC for such operating losses. Cooperation after the first 36 months will be subject to further negotiation between the parties. As of December 31, 2019, we had paid JAC a total of $90,310,656.80, including $49,772,468.20 as compensation for losses incurred in 2018 and 2019 and $40,538,188.60 for manufacturing and processing fees.
Risk catalysts mentioned:
Beginning July 1, 2018, the tariff on imported passenger vehicles (other than those originating in the United States of America) was reduced to 15%. As a result, our pricing advantage could be diminished.
(In English: The trade war between the West and China is killing any chances of NIO achieving market share in places outside of China.)
Pursuant to the 2018 Negative List, the limits on foreign ownership of auto manufacturers were lifted in 2018 for NEVs and will be lifted by 2022 for ICE vehicles. As a result, foreign EV competitors could build wholly-owned facilities in China without the need for a domestic joint venture partner. For example, Tesla has started constructing a factory in Shanghai without a joint venture partner. These changes could increase our competition and reduce our pricing advantage.
(In English: China is incentivizing FDI (Foreign Domestic Investment), which is leading to competition from corps like Tesla who are much more established and have the funds to outpace NIO.)
We believe that our sales performance of ES8 and ES6 in 2019 was negatively affected by the reduction in the subsidy standard. The current 2020 subsidy standard, effective from April 23, 2020, (i) reduces the base subsidy amount in general by 10% for each NEV, (ii) sets subsidies for 2 million vehicles as the upper limit of annual subsidy scale; and (iii) provides that national subsidy shall only apply to an NEV with the sale price under $44,826.60 or equipped with battery swapping module. Further, the 2021 and the 2022 subsidy standard are expected to be reduced by 20% and 30% respectively as compared to the standard of the immediate preceding year.
(In English: Less government incentive = lower operating margin = less revenue growth.)
Our servicing will primarily be carried out through third parties certified by us. Although such servicing partners may have experience in servicing other vehicles, we and such partners have very limited experience in servicing our vehicles. Servicing electric vehicles is different from servicing ICE vehicles and requires specialized skills, including high voltage training and servicing techniques
(In English: NIO cannot afford to achieve vertical integration yet and relies heavily on outsourcing to other, much smaller companies to get certain jobs done. Their supplier network is likely to be inefficient at times and falter under macroeconomic headwinds like government intervention (think trade war and tax credits) and covid-19 and this makes NIO's operations all the more compromised.)
Some outside data to look at:
China Total Vehicle Sales: 1997 - 2020
Overall seems incredibly cyclical but in an upward trend over the next 5 years. Long term investors shouldn't worry about demand.
China GDP Annual Growth Rate: 1989 - 2020
China believe it or not is still considered a developing country which is defined by its high GDP growth rate and low standard of living. It averages 6% a year but due to covid fell harshly. Right now it is sitting at 4% but is expected to return to 6% within the next two years.
China Consumer Confidence Index: 1991 - 2020
Consumer confidence forecasts are predicted to rise as the world recovers from covid-19. This in turn can translate to increased spending and economic stimulation (aka more potential demand and orders for NIO vehicles.)
China Car Production: 2005-2020
China is set to return to the 25 Million vehicle production milestone it often flirted with over the past decade. Should it overcome the impact on manufacturing from covid and the trade war, it may very well achieve even higher historical output although that is a very optimistic outlook given the current geopolitical situation.
My personal outlook:
I'm getting a lot of comments assuming that I'm bearish on NIO. Overall I'm neutral but hopeful that there is more to come once they move past their growth phase. Here is what I think they need to focus on to achieve Tesla levels of growth:
  • Achieve vertical integration to lower cost of goods sold as much as possible
  • Focus primarily on R&D investments (management has been doing that!)
  • Don't focus on international expansion. That can wait until after they've established a steady footing financially and have achieved a significant market share in China. Right now international expansion is too expensive and risky given they are still in a growth phase and cannot be 100% confident in the numbers from the factory or the sentiment from customers.
  • Make sure Tesla does not succeed in China. It currently has a factory and is working on fighting NIO for market share. If Tesla wins NIO will remain a smaller competitor and not achieve nearly as much growth as people are hoping for. I see a lot of people banking on them monopolizing the EV market in China. That is a naive assumption at this time and it is still anyone's guess as to who will come out on top once the dust has settled.
  • Pray for tax incentives. Tesla did so well in the states because the fed and state authorities gave tons and tons of tax credits for renewable energy investments and made it very attractive to buy electric vehicles. Right now China is on track to reduce these incentives which as I mentioned above will hurt NIO's bottom line. If green energy credits can be expanded upon within China it will make NIO's products much more attractive and the production of them financially feasible for NIO given their current state.
We will see how all of this plays out over the coming week as several important make-or-break announcements will be coming out regarding the company that can very well decide if it is the next Tesla or not.

DD: 10 Reasons that $CRSA Is the Most Underrated/Undervalued Upcoming SPAC Merger

DD: 10 Reasons that $CRSA Is the Most Underrated/Undervalued Upcoming SPAC Merger
EDIT: This SPAC merger has been terminated. I'm leaving the DD below as I'll be investing in F45 when they do go public. I have exited my position on this.
I've obsessively been doing DD on F45 (merging into CRSA; warrants: CRSAW) since early July. I've spent at least 50-100 hours picking it apart from every angle, and I've been dollar cost averaging into the shares and warrants for several weeks. I have personally concluded that this is the most underrated/undervalued SPAC merger because people have been temporarily tricked by Covid / the market to not actually look into it. I've never done a post like this before, but I decided that since I've done the DD and no one else seemed to be, I guess I'm the one to distill it for people to consider the sizable opportunity.
The company is a cash cow that is rapidly growing an imposing global brand with an innovative and scalable model of high intensity interval training studios that use a patented software system to deliver a new daily HIIT workout to every global location via digital monitors on the studio walls. I think that the vast majority of investors have skipped past looking below the surface based on the reasonable assumption that "gym + covid = bad". I encourage you to take a few minutes to look below the surface here and make sure you're not missing a significant opportunity. I believe it is.
The amount of info I could type out is more extensive than most would care to read, so I figured I'd break the key points down into a list of my favorite things about F45 as an investment opportunity. Additionally, I highly encourage you to spend 5-10 minutes reading the investor presentation hosted on Crescent Acquisition's website here.pdf). They did an excellent job of presenting the product, business model, financials, etc.
I've accumulated a lot more information than I could lay out here, so feel free to ask any questions and I'll get to all of them as soon as possible. Here are ten of the reasons that I believe CRSA is the most underrated/undervalued SPAC with an upcoming merger:

1. It’s growing 40-50%+ per year.

The charts below show F45's revenue and EBITDA growth over the past few years, as well as projections for this year and next (see point #2 as a caveat to the projections, because their franchise sales numbers this year have actually proven significantly better than forecast here, which should also have a positive effect on revenue).
As a franchise company, F45 makes most of their money from selling franchises and collecting monthly franchise fees. New franchises pay an establishment fee of up to $50k and purchase $120k in proprietary equipment from F45. Once opened, the franchises pay a $2500/month franchise fee.
(Note that the difference between "Franchises Sold" and "Total Studios Open" on the chart below seems to primarily be a matter of the lag between a franchise agreement being signed and the franchise actually opening for business, rather than failed franchises which is what I thought initially.)

https://preview.redd.it/zq6wclz3ntk51.png?width=2150&format=png&auto=webp&s=7eb89ae1b10e54fece71cb988d20216cbd002821
The slide below is interesting as well. This isn't from the investor presentation, but rather a March '19 franchise sales presentation.
The item that intrigues me the most is that F45 surpassed Crossfit as the largest gym network in Australia within just four years of launching their first location...this is explosive growth, and the United States has now overtaken Australia as their largest and fastest growing market. Their product is clearly resonating with people, even if you've never heard of it yourself (as I hadn't).
https://preview.redd.it/k5mvpqijntk51.png?width=2546&format=png&auto=webp&s=9a9ba503522252b2b0dcc5390b46e543aae3d264

2. Covid has not been nearly the significant setback that was feared.

As mentioned in the first point, the 2020 projections above have actually proven to be significantly conservative, which should increase 2021's projections as well.
As you can see in the chart in the first point, F45 was projecting new franchise sales this year of 174 due to Covid. In their August 6, 2020 8K filing, they provided a significant update to this, but they haven't updated the projections slide to reflect the latest bullish information.
Their 8/6 update stated that they sold 244 franchises so far in 2020 through July, including 124 in June/July alone. If you extrapolate out the monthly new franchise sales below, you can infer that they'll likely end up selling over 400 franchises this year, assuming the recent sales success continues.

https://preview.redd.it/bdw786b5ntk51.png?width=2038&format=png&auto=webp&s=532cba1aea8dbf116e7a80493b3f59afb2ecdecf
The 8/6 update further stated that 50 new studios opened from June through early August, and that 78% of the pre-covid franchise network was re-opened as of August 3, 2020 and that the median revenue per studios opened for seven weeks was back to 88% of pre-covid levels. Keep in mind that F45 makes their money from franchise fees, so the main factor is that studios are open and hopefully paying the full fee.
Lastly on this point, CRSA is valuing F45 at less than half of their expected pre-covid IPO price. Robert Beyer, executive chairman of CRSA and founder of Crescent Capital Group ($28bn in AUM) had this to say on the conference call: "F45 has a steep growth trajectory, proven over seven years of opening more than 1,200 and selling nearly 2,000 franchises in more than 50 countries. The company has been profitable since inception, with extremely high cash flow margins, not only for the company but for its franchisees....This is simply one of the most exciting public market stories we’ve heard, with a valuation that is 30% to 50% below its peers and less than half the expected price of its previously planned IPO, which was interrupted by the worldwide lockdown only a few short months ago."

3. The business is successfully scaling globally (very quickly).

One of the most intriguing things to me about F45's growth and the investment opportunity is that F45 is proving that their model is scalable around the globe, something that most other fitness franchises have not achieved.
The company's franchise sales team has grown from 6 to 34 members since 2019, with 18 in the Americas, three in Europe, three in the Middle East & Africa, and five in Asia, as well as five who cater to college, corporate, and military (F45s are rapidly popping up in college rec centers and soon on military bases).
The chart below shows open and soon-to-open locations around the world. It's hard to tell on this map, but I believe it's 776 in the Americas (mainly USA), 124 in Europe, 8 in Africa, 200 in Asia, and 572 in Australia. (The company started in Australia and quickly penetrated that market. The fastest growth now is in the United States.)

https://preview.redd.it/66dqonw6ntk51.png?width=672&format=png&auto=webp&s=1676d7873c6db4d0122b831ddac7793a2c254c9b

4. The celebrities who use, support, and invest in F45 make the brand sexy.

Mark Wahlberg is a key investor in F45 and will be on the board after the merger. Hugh Jackman trained for his role as Wolverine in the X-Men film series at F45. Other celebrities who use or have used F45 include Nicole Kidman, Channing Tatum, Nicole Ritchie, Sam Smith, Ricky Martin, Joel Madden, Russell Crowe, Teri Hatcher, and more.
No offense at all to Planet Fitness and PF members, but I don't think a lot of celebrities are members there.

5. The franchisees pay for the company’s growth.

The company requires very little capital to fund their growth because the franchise establishment and equipment fees fund the buildout of each new F45 location and thus fund the company's growth. Warren Buffett has long preached that the best investments are companies that require very little capital to run their business. This is a prime example.
In fact, the company doesn't really even need the capital from this merger. They've suggested how they may use it, and I'll get to that in a later point (it's bullish).

6. The company is easy to understand and follow.

You don't have to be a fitness nut or in the fitness industry to understand and follow this investment (I'm not a fitness nut or in the industry). Their business model is very simple. They make most of their money from franchise fees, as well as equipment packs.
The main metric to watch is the number of franchises sold, as you can assume that each new franchise will add the following revenue: $50k establishment fee (there seems to be wiggle room with this depending on the deal), $120k equipment purchase, and $30k+ in annual recurring revenue from the monthly franchise fee. There's also a $25k franchise renewal fee after five years, and some other fees as well, including the anticipation of equipment pack refreshes. (Note on page 49 of the investor presentation.pdf) how this revenue is recognized...the establishment fee is amortized over ten years, so each franchise sold will add approximately $5k to revenue for the ten years after it's sold from the establishment fee, in addition to the monthly franchise fee.)

7. The company has some level of moat from patents.

F45 holds patents for the innovative technology it uses to power the studios and the global network: https://patents.justia.com/assignee/f45-training-pty-ltd. It is currently actively pursuing a case against an upstart in Australia that is using a model that is allegedly similar.
I believe that F45 has tapped into a unique way to scale a HIIT training business into a global franchise model, and the success of that model is evident in the number of franchises being sold globally. It's great that they have a certain level of protection from others replicating this model. Assuming the patents prove defensible, it would be hard for competitors to replicate their success in their largest markets.

8. The product is so good that its members are often described as a cult.

If you search articles and social media, you'll often hear F45 described as a cult. Publicly traded companies with a cult following often do very well, such as Apple and Tesla.Here's the first paragraph of a 2020 GQ UK article about F45: "Whenever a friend of mine has suddenly walked back into my life looking better than they’ve ever looked before, the reason was always the same: F45. The cult exercise class, which can be found nearly anywhere in the world, just seems to work for people."

9. The potential for further growth is large enough that this is likely just in the first inning.

F45 estimates that the franchise potential in their existing markets is 25,000, based on the number of studios per capita in Australia. This seems reasonable to me because F45 was able to get to basically a 1:1 parity with Crossfit locations in Australia within three years. F45 is arguably a much better structured / operated business than Crossfit (from a capitalistic investment perspective), which is why I think they were able to achieve a similar number of locations in Australia so quickly.
Based on informal polling of friends and chatter on the internet, it seems evident to me that very few people in the United States have heard of F45. However, if you live in a small city or larger and search your city on the locations map on their website, chances are that there's a studio open or opening soon near you.
Since each studio only needs 75-150 members to operate profitably and can't accommodate many more, it's been quietly growing and thriving, unnoticed by the majority of people. As the number of locations grows to accommodate more people, I think it's highly likely that you'll be hearing about it a lot before long. If you know someone who does Crossfit, chances are you'll know someone who does F45 soon.
As an addendum to the paragraph above, if you've ever read "One Up on Wall Street" by Peter Lynch, I believe that this is a perfect example of the type of opportunity he describes. It's a rapidly growing, profitable company with a great product and a business model that's easy to understand, but that most people have not yet heard of. Unless some unanticipated force somehow stops them dead in their tracks (as Covid appears to have failed to do), the growth is likely on enough of a trajectory to where this will be a hot stock before too long.
edit: I'm adding a few city maps below. (Explanation in the captions.)
These are the F45 locations in Melbourne, Australia. This is insane. It's like Starbucks. I can only think of a few companies with this level of critical mass in major cities.
Here are the locations in the Los Angeles area. It's starting to approach Melbourne, Australia levels. (Each number represents the number of locations under that dot. I couldn't zoom in further and capture the whole area.)
These are the current locations in Boston, MA. One open and two opening. Compare this to Melbourne and Los Angeles and you can see why this is only the first inning.
The reason why cities can accommodate so many F45 locations is because of the favorable unit economics. Each location breaks even at 75-150 members, and each location can only accommodate about 350 members. Therefore, as F45 reaches critical mass in a city, a large number of locations are needed to meet the demand. This is bullish for the company since more locations = more franchise fees.

10. Corporate owned franchises will accelerate growth further.

I mentioned earlier in point five that F45 has suggested how they may use the company's merger cash, given that they don't need it for the current growth. They've suggested that they may acquire existing franchise locations or establish new company-owned locations.
This is bullish because it will significantly accelerate their revenue growth. Instead of grossing ~$30k in franchise fee revenue each year per location, company-owned locations will likely contribute $275k-$500k in revenue per year. Planet Fitness has followed a similar strategy to this...they've turned to pursuing company-owned locations which has accelerated their revenue growth.
----------------------------------
Additional Notes:
  • The warrants (CRSAW) have an exercise price of $11.50 and the company can redeem them after the common shares (CRSA) have traded above $18 for 30+ days. The warrants were selling for $0.60-$0.65 last week. Warrants purchased at $0.60 would return over 900% if the common shares climb higher than $18 within five years of the merger. Based on F45's rapid growth, I believe that the probability of shares going from $10 to $18 in the next five years is high.
  • As of July 15, the net asset value per share of the common stock was $10.15. That means that if you're able to buy the shares for less than $10.15, your risk is extremely low because you could technically redeem your shares for $10.15 in cash around the merger closing. (However, hopefully the F45 story gets out there and it's no longer trading below the NAV by the merger closing.)
  • Investor relations said a week or two ago that they're awaiting SEC approval of the proxy statement and then they'll send it out with the shareholder vote date. They said that they now expect closing to be "late Q3 / early Q4".
  • Note that there is risk with the warrants, in part because if the merger were somehow derailed, they could lose some or all of their value. However, the compensation for that risk right now is that the return potential on them is massive (as outlined above). The main risk for the merger falling through seems to be the possibility that too many shareholders redeem their shares. In that case, Crescent has the option to add more cash to complete the merger. I personally believe that they would do that. They seem to fully believe in F45 as an investment, and they have a vested interest in the merger going through and then the shares doing well. They announced the merger in June, well into Covid, so this wasn't affected by the Covid surprise. F45's franchise sales have been solid despite Covid, as outlined earlier.
I want to reiterate that I have a long position in both CRSA and CRSAW. I hope to realize the maximum profit on the majority of my warrant position by selling or exercising if/when the common shares are trading above $18 (based on the company's ability to redeem the warrants once the shares trade above $18 for 20 days over a 30 day period).
Like I mentioned, I'll try to answer any questions to the best of my ability as soon as possible in the comments below.
None of this is investment advice, simply an outline of the due diligence that made me highly bullish on F45. Do your own research--there's great further reading in the documents on this page of Crescent's website. In particular, the investor presentation.pdf) I mentioned earlier does an excellent job of laying out the product, business model, financials, etc in an easily digestible way.

SOAC - The next best thing besides a SPAC ESG ETF

SOAC - The next best thing besides a SPAC ESG ETF
Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) has risen greatly in popularity in recent time. With many factors (including Covid) raising awareness around ESG it would appear there has never been a better time to invest in this market trend/values (besides maybe six months ago).
Government subsidies, decarbonization, climate change, industrial/infrastructure upgrades, technological advancements, ESG popularity, greenwashing and police brutality are but a few of the catalysts favouring ESG focused companies (ETFs, funds and SPACs like SPAQ/SOAC). The recent growth in EV market, solar stocks, renewable energy, Tesla, the Juneteenth stock’s and the green energy market (including SPACs - NKLA SHLL SPAQ) are but a few of the benefiters of this “movement” to date.
It’s not just day trading millennials (beckys/RH) who love this stuff but hedge funds are also benefiting from this trend (that is here to stay). It might be a personal belief of mine coupled with my passion for environmentalism but market trends do not lie (although can pop) – and if I can profit from this, why not?
SPAQ SHLL SOAC FMCI BMRG HCCH NKLA BLNK DGLY SOLO EVSI NIO UONE BYFC FMCI BYND RUN WKHS TSLA SHRM.. - a few quick/recent examples of companies with strong ESG verticals absolutely crushing the market. I watched the rise of DKNG (Atlanta fan haha) and NKLA (no product lol) but took a pass because I didn’t fully understand SPACs at the time - don’t be that guy..
Furthermore, ESG funds tend to outperform traditional investments (during downturns - like covid – and some SPACs were a safe haven (because of something called Escrow).
It seems like we need a SPAC ETF ESG focused on some of the above mentioned.. more like needed it six months ago (imagine the returns $$$)??
Very Basic (and inconclusive without further) Market Research:

“A poll … by JP Morgan of 50 global institutions with $12.9 trillion under management found that 71% of respondents felt the economic shock of Covid-19 would increase awareness and actions globally to tackle climate change and “high impact, high probability” events like it. “Over the long run, COVID-19 could prove to be a major turning point for ESG investing,” said Jean-Xavier Hecker and Hugo Dubourg, co-heads of ESG and Sustainability at JP Morgan. “

The ESG SPAC Space:
There are a few (openly) ESG focused SPACs right now - SOAC is arguably the best. When you invest in a SPAC remember – you are investing in the team ie management, UW, legal and institutional backing (follow the money) C.R.E.A.M.
Sustainable Opportunities Acquisition Corp.SOAC
Structure:
345m - 100% still in Trust18mo term – I like the short term (maybe we see a CCXX or BMRG early announcement)IPO May 6 2020 – Love the confidence of IPOing in the face of Covid½ Warrant/UnitCitigroup running the books soloKirkland and Ellis & Davis Polk and Wardwell are lawyers involvedCrescent term threshold of $9.2
Business Proposal:
“We believe that there are significant, attractive investment opportunities that exist within industries that benefit from strong Environmental, Social and Governance (“ESG”) profiles. While investing in ESG covers a broad range of themes, we are focused on evaluating suitable targets that have existing environmental sustainability practices or that may benefit, both operationally and economically, from our management team’s commitment and expertise in executing such practices. We believe our management team’s experience allows us to evaluate targets in industries such as manufacturing (including auto, building materials), chemicals, services (including waste, environmental, construction), logistics (including transportation, distribution), technology (hardware, software, devices), agriculture (including biofuels) and energy (with focus on renewable generation, utility services, energy efficiency/management), among others. Furthermore, our target universe could include companies undergoing a transition to increase their environmental sustainability profiles, reflecting an opportunity to bring environmentally sustainable practices to companies that may not have historically been focused on environmental sustainability. We believe there is a wide array of companies undergoing this “brown-to-green” transition in our target universe. Companies in our target universe tend to have stable growth rates and would greatly benefit from access to public market capital.”
Management:
“The SOAC management team has extensive experience in operating and managing sustainability initiatives within a wide range of companies and industries throughout the U.S.”

SPAC Risks:
SPAC’s tend to be 50/50 after merger IMOPotential EV or ESG bubble might be formingDoes anyone have an example of a SPAC in the last 15 years (or later) that has liquidated and didn’t pay out?(I honestly haven’t looked)I see 0.1% risk in SPAC shares/units long term (thanks to escrow)
Final Thoughts:
Future (disruptive) ESG companies (like PureCycle) might want to try and avoid previous mistakes (like UBER) by going the public via the SPAC route... Its kind of a thing these days (thank you Covid) and helps them to make more money faster, price their deal properly/more efficiently and gain (those all-important wall street) connections – I see you SPAQ .. also anyone else see spacs drop in the WSJ?
Completely speculative possible ESG SPAC’s – IPOC/IPOB, HCAC/JIH, GMHI/NPA, SBE/ALUS/TDAC, **KCAC/**SSPK, or JWS/PTSH? Who else are we missing?? Who else will pivot like SHLL, SPAQ, HCCH or get a BlackRock PIPE??
Disclaimer: This is not investment advice and I have positions in some of the above.
TLDR: ESG trend is here to stay and SOAC is a ESG SPAC with great a great team

Significant Insider Trades (Last 7 Days)

This is a list of the top 20 companies that experienced the largest change in insider shares in the last seven (7) days. The SEC defines an insider as any officer, director or 10% shareholder. It is not illegal for these people to buy or sell their own shares. In fact, since most of them get paid in stock options, it is expected. However, it is illegal for them to trade on inside information that has not been made public. So for example if there are drug trial results that are bad and not public, insiders cannot dump shares. That said, many people have observed that insiders - in general - seem to have a good track record at timing their purchases. All trades that are marked as part of a 10b5 plan are excluded from this report.

In 2009, China's automobile sales volume was 13.64 million, surpassing the United States for the first time to become the world's largest automobile production and sales country. By 2017, China's new car sales had reached 28.88 million. The explosive growth made the world lament the terror of China's speed. The rapid growth of automobile sales and the vigorous development of the industry have benefited from the changes in the business model brought about by technological innovation, and the enthusiasm and wisdom of countless people in the automotive industry!
This is the story of a pioneer who has led and witnessed the changes in the automotive industry—the innovator in the automotive industry: Pan Guangjie.

Layouter of innovative business models

Pan Guangjie was born in Hubei and grew up in Hubei. Hubei is the key to the upper reaches of the Yangtze River and the thoroughfare of the nine provinces. Therefore, people in this place are intelligent, innovative, and changeable.
In 2013, at a young age, Pan Guangjie had become the regional sales manager of Wuhan Guangzhou Automobile Toyota Motor. During this period, he learned that any manufacturer of a brand had inventory backlogs that needed to be resolved.
Pan Guangjie knew that since it was not a car’s problem, it was either an economic problem, or the business model had fallen behind. The pain point of the industry is the potential business opportunity. Realizing this, Pan Guangjie resolutely resigned from the position of regional sales manager and chose to leave his hometown to explore new areas of auto trade in Beijing.

As a senior manager who has related to traditional channels for many years, Pan Guangjie has a deep understanding of the persistent problems in the industry. In order to solve the problem of high marketing cost and low efficiency of traditional 4S stores, and to solve the problem of users' difficulty in finding a car, Pan Guangjie took a fancy to the Internet. At that time in China, e-commerce had been successfully practiced for more than ten years. The Internet had swept all walks of life. People's living and consumption habits were gradually changed. Traditional industries were facing the choice of revolution and innovation.
Pan Guangjie joined the auto dealer 168 with no hesitate, through this auto channel e-commerce service platform, to provide national auto dealers with car source release, car source search, online transaction and marketing promotion and other products and one-stop services. The success of Auto 168 made him realize that this step was right.
Then he accurately predicted that mobile marketing will become popular. Pan Guangjie cooperated with Selling Good Car APP to help dealers solve the problems of car source, money, and circulation through services such as "Good Car Online, Good Car Logistics, and Good Car Finance". ,and improve the shortcomings of operating efficiency and low profit margins, and reduce operating costs.
After successfully helping traditional car wholesalers to transform into O2O car sale e-commerce, Pan Guangjie promoted this new business model to the whole country. The automobile industry began to be closely integrated with the Internet, and automobile marketing entered a diversified era.
It is the glory of others to assist in the sidelines. So in 2016, Pan Guangjie returned to Xiangyang and founded Auto Showroom and Xiangyang Baicheng Hengda Automobile Sales Co., Ltd. With the enthusiasm of the "new retail" concept, he continued to engage in automobile wholesale and new automobile retail. Pan Guangjie finally took the helm personally, racing through the torrent of the new era.

Seek business opportunities with insight and make progress in adversity

Li Ka-shing said: Positive people see an opportunity in every trouble, while negative people see some trouble in every opportunity.
Pan Guangjie is the one who sees the opportunity in trouble. At the same time, he is well versed in the business of picking winners and losers.
For example, in 2013, when many traditional industry insiders were worried about the inventory backlog, Pan Guangjie saw the Internet as a channel and became a pioneer of change.
After the Tianjin Port explosion in 2015, some manufacturers experienced inventory backlogs. Pan Guangjie worked with Beijing Auto Baihui and Shandong Kangzheng Group to get these special vehicles for national sales at very low discounts, and push the concept of discount cars to the whole country. Then Pan Guangjie helped deal with the backlogs of manufacturers such as Changan Suzuki, Changan Ford, GAC Trumpchi, FAW Audi, Shanghai Volkswagen, etc., and solved the urgent needs of major manufacturers one after another. Pan Guangjie also created a sales model for auto trade stores and drove the wave of opening auto trade stores nationwide.
As a senior auto manager, Pan Guangjie can always see business opportunities inadvertently. At the same time, he has a keen sense of smell and accurate judgment for collecting, sorting, and analyzing information on consumer demand characteristics for certain types of commodities.
https://preview.redd.it/y6wwop4qrls51.png?width=1207&format=png&auto=webp&s=1d1d3d1e860c73f9b6f2e84a989ff5d189c44589
After nearly a decade of rapid growth, the automotive industry experienced a decline for the first time in 2018, and the industry is in a downturn. Many people were fleeing, Pan Guangjie choose to understand the needs of consumers more deeply.
At the end of 2018, Pan Guangjie and Shenlong Group negotiated a cooperation and contracted a small amount of Dongfeng Yufeng S16 production lines. Boldly tried to produce 500 Yufeng S16s and sold them exclusively, and they were sold out in a very short period of time, paving the way for contracting more production lines in the future.
A deep understanding of the needs of consumers, customizing and launching suitable products not only touched the hearts of consumers, but also broke the homogeneity competition with peers, so that Pan Guangjie can make a firm foothold in the industry. In the so-called cold winter of the industry, growth bucked the trend. Xiangyang Baicheng Hengda Automobile Sales Co., Ltd. has become a well-known new automobile retail company in Hubei and even in China.
Seeing miracles in ordinary places, glancing at business opportunities in incidents, keeping up with the pace of the times, and grasping the pulse of cutting-edge technology, this is the secret of Pan Guangjie to stand out again and again. Now he has found a new direction.

Actively seek change and gain momentum

Since 2018, due to the impact of trade frictions, economic growth has slowed down. As a bulk consumable, automobiles have been under pressure. Sales have fallen for two consecutive years. In 2020, they have been hit by the epidemic again, and the entire automobile industry is even more severe.
With one exception, even though the epidemic is raging, Tesla has shown a strong growth rate. Its stock price has risen by nearly 90% in the past 12 months. This proves once again that, from concept to reality, new technologies play an important role as the driving force of the new economy.
At this difficult time, the entire industry is looking for a new breakout. The empowerment of high-tech can meet the new market supply and demand, such as using AI to build unmanned vehicles, using big data and the Internet of Things to rationally plan the allocation of transportation resources, etc., with the catalysis of new infrastructure and 5G, applications gradually landed. The cars of the age will become more efficient and intelligent.
https://preview.redd.it/cy90btqrrls51.png?width=1080&format=png&auto=webp&s=61ef8ea26d524c57da8e70d6d91c7d0a3f5b04e2
When any industry tends to mature, wealth and resources will gather to a few leading enterprises. The fierce competition in the industry reminds us again and again that this is still a society of the jungle, but a civilized society allows everyone to have a fair chance to compete. Every advance in technology has led to a group of people coming from behind and reshaping the landscape of the industry, especially in today's globalized world, where seizing the technological highland means seizing the global market.
The problems in the automotive industry are common in a global scale. If new technology is a weapon, then the global market is a battlefield. Pan Guangjie has taken the lead in embracing new technology, not only to solve the problems of the industry, but also to open up territory in a wider world.
Seven years later, Pan Guangjie has gone out of Hubei and China. He looks forward to the infinite possibilities of the automobile industry and becomes a game changer again. We expect him to create a new automobile empire.

SOAC and the ESG SPAC ETF

SOAC and the ESG SPAC ETF
Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) has risen greatly in popularity in recent time. With many factors (including Covid) raising awareness around ESG it would appear there has never been a better time to invest in this market trend/values (besides maybe six months ago).
Government subsidies, decarbonization, climate change, industrial/infrastructure upgrades, technological advancements, ESG popularity, greenwashing and police brutality are but a few of the catalysts favouring ESG focused companies (ETFs, funds and SPACs like SPAQ/SOAC). The recent growth in EV market, solar stocks, renewable energy, Tesla, the Juneteenth stock’s and the green energy market (including SPACs - NKLA SHLL SPAQ) are but a few of the benefiters of this “movement” to date.
It’s not just day trading millennials (beckys/RH) who love this stuff but hedge funds are also benefiting from this trend (that is here to stay). It might be a personal belief of mine coupled with my passion for environmentalism but market trends do not lie (although can pop) – and if I can profit from this, why not?
SPAQ SHLL SOAC FMCI BMRG HCCH NKLA BLNK DGLY SOLO EVSI NIO UONE BYFC FMCI BYND RUN WKHS TSLA SHRM.. - a few quick/recent examples of companies with strong ESG verticals absolutely crushing the market. I watched the rise of DKNG (Atlanta fan haha) and NKLA (no product lol) but took a pass because I didn’t fully understand SPACs at the time - don’t be that guy..
Furthermore, ESG funds tend to outperform traditional investments (during downturns - like covid – and some SPACs were a safe haven (because of something called Escrow).
It seems like we need a SPAC ETF ESG focused on some of the above mentioned.. more like needed it six months ago??
Very Basic (and inconclusive without further) Market Research:

“A poll … by JP Morgan of 50 global institutions with $12.9 trillion under management found that 71% of respondents felt the economic shock of Covid-19 would increase awareness and actions globally to tackle climate change and “high impact, high probability” events like it. “Over the long run, COVID-19 could prove to be a major turning point for ESG investing,” said Jean-Xavier Hecker and Hugo Dubourg, co-heads of ESG and Sustainability at JP Morgan. “

The ESG SPAC Space:
There are a few (openly) ESG focused SPACs right now - SOAC is arguably the best. When you invest in a SPAC remember – you are investing in the team ie management, UW, legal and institutional backing (follow the money)..
Sustainable Opportunities Acquisition Corp. SOAC
Structure:
345m - 100% still in Trust 18mo term – I like the short term (maybe we see a CCXX or BMRG early announcement) IPO May 6 2020 – Love the confidence of IPOing in the face of Covid ½ Warrant/Unit Citigroup running the books solo Kirkland and Ellis & Davis Polk and Wardwell are lawyers involved Crescent term threshold of $9.2
Business Proposal:
“We believe that there are significant, attractive investment opportunities that exist within industries that benefit from strong Environmental, Social and Governance (“ESG”) profiles. While investing in ESG covers a broad range of themes, we are focused on evaluating suitable targets that have existing environmental sustainability practices or that may benefit, both operationally and economically, from our management team’s commitment and expertise in executing such practices. We believe our management team’s experience allows us to evaluate targets in industries such as manufacturing (including auto, building materials), chemicals, services (including waste, environmental, construction), logistics (including transportation, distribution), technology (hardware, software, devices), agriculture (including biofuels) and energy (with focus on renewable generation, utility services, energy efficiency/management), among others. Furthermore, our target universe could include companies undergoing a transition to increase their environmental sustainability profiles, reflecting an opportunity to bring environmentally sustainable practices to companies that may not have historically been focused on environmental sustainability. We believe there is a wide array of companies undergoing this “brown-to-green” transition in our target universe. Companies in our target universe tend to have stable growth rates and would greatly benefit from access to public market capital.”

SPAC Risks:
SPAC’s tend to be 50/50 after merger IMO Potential EV or ESG bubble might be forming Does anyone have an example of a SPAC in the last 15 years (or later) that has liquidated and didn’t pay out? (I honestly haven’t looked) I see 0.1% risk in SPAC shares/units long term (thanks to escrow)
Final Thoughts:
Future (disruptive) ESG companies (like PureCycle) might want to try and avoid previous mistakes (like UBER) by going the public via the SPAC route... Its kind of a thing these days (thank you Covid) and helps them to make more money faster, price their deal properly/more efficiently and gain (those all-important wall street) connections – I see you SPAQ .. also anyone else see spacs drop in the WSJ?
Completely speculative possible ESG SPAC’s – IPOC/IPOB, HCAC/JIH, GMHI/NPA, SBE/ALUS/TDAC, KCAC/SSPK, or JWS/PTSH? Who else are we missing?? Who else will pivot like SHLL, SPAQ, HCCH or get a BlackRock PIPE??
PS: This is not investment advice and I have positions in some of the above.
TLDR: ESG trend is here to stay and SOAC is a ESG SPAC

Relationship Between Hunter Biden and China.

Relationship Between Hunter Biden and China.


Relationship Between Hunter Biden and China. Hunter Biden's deals 'serving' China and the Chinese military, are featured in a new movie.
Hunter Biden's business dealings in China serve the "Strategic Interests" of a country with a communist and military government that could compromise US national security, that is of a pre-censored exclusive documentary by The New York Post.
“Riding the Dragon: The Bidens' Chinese Secrets” Dragon Riding: Biden's Chinese Secret, highlights some of the deals that Hunter Biden has entered as a member of the Board of Directors of investment firm BHR Partners based in Beijing.
The film also alleges that Hunter was only able to meet with Chinese officials, and secured $ 1 billion in funding, "because his father was: the Vice President of the United States" and "the main navigator The book on the China side of the United States was Barack Obama. ”
The 41-minute documentary was narrated by best-selling writer Peter Schweizer, author of“ Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How knowledge and why foreign governments and businesses have made Bill and Hillary rich, ”and previously wrote about Hunter's business dealings in China.
It is being broadcast live on BlazeTV. , on Thursday completed and post it on YouTube in six segments.
After founding BHR in 2013, Mr. Schweizer said, "The new Hunter company ... began making investment transactions around the world in the strategic interests of the Chinese government."
He added: "This new company began to conduct investment transactions for the strategic interests of the Chinese military."
Deals discussed in the film include a 2015 joint venture between BHR and AVIC Auto - a subsidiary of China Aviation Industry Corporation (AVIC), which makes jets for the Chinese military - to buy Henniges Automotive, an American auto parts manufacturer.
Mr. Schweizer said that Henniges products are considered "dual use" for both civilian and military purposes.
The film also focuses on BHR's 2014 investment in China General Nuclear Power Corp., China Nuclear Power Corporation, formerly a state-owned electric power company.
In December 2016, the FBI arrested China's Commander in Chief of Nuclear Engineer, Szuhsiung "Allen" Ho, for plotting to help China acquire "sensitive nuclear technology" in the United States. illegal.
Ho, a naturalized US citizen, pleaded guilty to the subsequent sentence and was sentenced to two years in prison.
Mr. Schweizer also said that after Chi Ping Patrick Ho, chief executive of CEFC China Energy Co., China Energy Company, was arrested by the FBI in 2017 for bribing officials in Africa, “One of His first calls ”were to James Biden, Joe Biden's brother.
Last year, James Biden told The New York Times that He believes Ho, who was later convicted by a Federal jury in Manhattan and sentenced to three years in prison, tried to contact Hunter Biden and him. James Biden has provided his nephew's contact information.
“Why exactly did he call Hunter Biden? What help is he looking for? "
We don't know the answer to that question, " asked Mr. Schweizer . But what we do know is that the Bidens family forged very close relationships with members of the Chinese elite.
Other agreements covered in the film include BHR's 2017 agreement with China Molybdenum Co., Ltd. (The elemental molybdenum has atomic number 42, a brittle silver-gray metal in the transition series, One of the largest molybdenum producers in the world, an elemental metal used in the manufacture of alloy steel for weapons and other items, to buy 24% stock part of the very large Tenke copper mine in the Democratic Republic of Congo, Africa.
Mr. Schweizer also noted that BHR's agreement with the company came after the World Trade Organization ruled against China's restrictions on "rare earth" mineral exports, including molybdenum, following complaints by the United States, the European Union and Japan.
A screenshot used to document the incident shows a CNN headline from 2012, "Obama attacked China with commercial claims", topping a story that is actually about export. car gun.
Schweizer's discussion of another BHR investment, in a Chinese company called Face ++, which sells facial recognition software, also comes with an outdated screenshot of a story. by The Intercept.
A report that was updated more than two months ago to remove a statement titled that the technology is used to "Track Muslims" and note that a "trouble report" on the electrical application The company's mobile phone by Human Rights Watch, mentioned in the first sentence of the story, "Since I came back."
In the film's ending, Mr. Schweizer said that "these deals not only make money for the Bidens family, they also have potentially dangerous consequences for our national security."
Mr. Schweizer admitted earlier in the film that "we can't know for sure" how much money the Biden family makes from transactions.
But he estimates that Hunter's 10% stake in BHR, which Hunter announced plans to resign in October amid pressure from public opinion in his father's main campaign is "worth millions of dollars, and even more valuable when the partnership with China is prosperous. "
Hunter Biden's attorney has denied whether he was ever compensated while on the BHR board, or benefiting from his share, according to The New York Times, said he invested $ 420,000. yelled for his 10% stake in October 2017, after his father Joe Biden left office.
Other arguments in the film are also contested, including the $ 1 billion funding deal that was finalized 10 days after Hunter Biden accompanied his father, Joe Biden, on a trip to Beijing in 2013.
Last year, a BHR representative told The New Yorker that an agreement that Hunter Biden was not a signer of, was made before the trip and a business license was issued shortly thereafter.
Hunter Biden's lawyer also said that BHR was initially invested only about $ 4.2 million, according to CNN.
Joe Biden's campaign declined to comment on the film, in addition to providing a list of 15 "fact-checking" bulletins covering various allegations of Hunter Biden's business dealings in China.
Both of them said that China Molybdenum was the majority owner of the mine when the BHR deal was signed and BHR then offered to sell its stake to China Molybdenum for a "modest" loss, but The deal has failed.
Six in the news, in another that was mentioned in the comments of President Trump, who did not appear in the film. the New York Post.
Note: Biden's actions and gestures want to bring China into America.
