Foxconn wants to use listed companies to do what?
Industrial Fulian will become the gold extraction pool of Foxconn Technology
Terry Gou had long wanted to tear down the label of the global foundry giant because of low profits and not a long-term business. With the depletion of the demographic dividend in mainland China, a number of production costs have risen. He once put forward the concept of "eight screens, one network and one cloud" facing the future life. However, the arrival of new orders for Apple's mobile phones has made this company more closely tied up with Apple.
This time, Foxconn Technology chose to package all its businesses and restructure the company through the gimmick of Industrial Internet. A securities analyst told the reporter that the Industrial Fulian is not changing drugs, but is now listed on both sides of the strait. It is similar to a company listed on two different stock exchanges.
The prospectus shows that the rich industries involved are rich in business, just like a small Foxconn. According to Gou, the IPO will accelerate the development of new fields such as smart manufacturing, industrial robot production, and artificial intelligence big data. At the same time, through the Foxconn Industrial Internet, 30 million SMEs are empowered.
At the same time, the gate of the A-share green channel was opened, which provided a convenient condition for the listing of industrial wealth under industrial Internet, cloud computing, and artificial intelligence. The aforementioned analyst said that compared with US stocks and Hong Kong stocks, A shares can give Foxconn a higher valuation.
In fact, Foxconn Technology revealed at the general meeting of shareholders that it chose to list in Shanghai. Industrial Fulian can help Foxconn expand related markets, attract talents to enhance global competitiveness, and use the A-share platform to help the Group add an independent financing platform. Working capital and capital expenditure increase more efficient financing channels.
