The growth of Maotai’s single quarter performance declines, and Guizhou’s state-owned assets gradually “let the cup”

On the evening of October 25, Guizhou Maotai disclosed the third quarter report of 2020. In the first three quarters of this year, Guizhou Maotai achieved an operating revenue of about 67.215 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 10.31%; and the net profit attributable to the parent company was about 33.827 billion yuan, with a year-on-year increase of 11.07%. In terms of revenue growth and net profit growth, the main indicators of Guizhou Maotai still maintain double-digit growth, which also exceeds the double-digit growth target proposed in the 2019 annual report of Guizhou Maotai. According to the plan, Guizhou Maotai’s revenue growth target is 10% in 2020. However, from the perspective of single quarter, the growth rate of Maotai in Guizhou in the second quarter and the third quarter did not reach double digits, and the single quarter growth rate further slowed down. Data shows that in the second quarter, Guizhou Maotai’s revenue and net profit were 19.547 billion yuan and 9.508 billion yuan respectively, with year-on-year growth rates of 9.5% and 8.9%, significantly lower than the double-digit growth rate in the first quarter. In the first quarter of this year, Guizhou Maotai achieved a revenue of 24.405 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 12.76%, and a net profit of 13.094 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 16.69%. < p > < p > in the third quarter, the growth rate of Maotai’s single quarter performance further declined.

If we continue to develop in accordance with such a trend, whether Guizhou Maotai can achieve the double-digit growth target proposed at the beginning of this year will leave a big doubt. According to the list of shareholders in the third quarter report, Guizhou state owned Capital Operation Co., Ltd., as the third largest shareholder, reduced its holding of 16.7526 million shares in the third quarter, and the shareholding ratio dropped sharply from 4% at the end of the second quarter to 2.67%.

In March this year, after Gao Weidong, former director of Guizhou Provincial Department of transportation, took over the post, Guizhou Maotai’s investment in infrastructure construction increased significantly. Guizhou Maotai announced that the company will donate no more than 546 million yuan to Xishui county government for the construction of Xixin Avenue construction project in Xishui County. < p > < p > according to the data of the third quarter report, Guizhou Maotai has also increased its efforts to extend loans to group members, with the increase of loans and advances of up to 5920%.
