At the same time, the company will also bear a debt of 475 million yuan from the above subsidiaries.
Some insiders believe that Dafu Technology's reply is too "superficial" or "official", and the above-mentioned transaction "may have other benefits underneath."
In this regard, Dafu Technology Dong Mi Lin Xiaomei responded to the "Securities Daily" reporter said that the debt belongs to the current debt, after the acquisition of the subsidiary, the relevant debt should be borne by Gao Xinxin.
Selling subsidiaries raises questions
On December 19, 2018, Dafu Technology announced that the company intends to transfer 100% equity of Anhui Dafu Heavy Industry Technology Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as “Dafu Heavy Industry”), a wholly-owned subsidiary, to Gaogaoxin, with a transfer price of 58 million yuan.
It is worth noting that in addition to paying the transfer fee of 58 million yuan, the high-tech investment needs to pay for the huge debts of Dafu Heavy Industry. At present, Dafu Heavy Industry still owes 4.7 billion yuan to Dafu Technology, and the debt will be repaid by Gaoxin. At present, the company has issued a "Joint Guarantee Letter of Commitment", indicating that the debt is subject to unlimited joint liability guarantee. With the acquisition of Dafu Heavy Industry, the amount of money spent by Gaoxin Investment was as high as 533 million yuan.

From 2015 to 2017, Dafu Heavy Industry lost RMB 42.32 million, RMB 17.87 million and RMB 78.53 million respectively, and lost RMB 30.41 million in the first three quarters of 2018.
The transaction of Dafu Technology triggered the attention of the Shenzhen Stock Exchange and asked him to explain the valuation basis of the sale of the subsidiary, the reasonableness of the repayment plan and the setting, and whether the transaction involves the transfer of benefits. However, when talking about the valuation of Dafu Heavy Industry in the letter of concern, Dafu Technology's reply was relatively simple, saying only that “the asset-based method was used for evaluation, and the valuation of Dafu Heavy Industry was 58.45 million yuan”.
At the same time, Dafu Technology is notannouncementIn detail, answer the questions about the origin and rationality of the above debts. Lin Xiaomei said in an interview with the "Securities Daily" reporter that "this debt belongs to the current debt of Dafu Heavy Industry. Gao Gaoxin bought a large and heavy industry, and the corresponding debts have also been transferred. Therefore, this debt should be due to high-tech investment. Come to bear."
In this regard, the industry said that "it is difficult to understand." "From the perspective of the assets of Dafu Heavy Industry, the repayment of this debt is not reasonable. The reply of the listed company is only superficial and too official. In addition, from the perspective of the acquirer, the cost of acquiring Dafu Heavy Industry is too Big, I don’t see where the investment logic behind it is, there may be other benefits to be conveyed under it.” A senior practitioner of Dahua Certified Public Accountants told the Securities Daily reporter.
On the other hand, the sale of Dafu Heavy Industry is expected to bring about 140 million yuan in profits to listed companies, while Dafu Technology clearly stated that there is no situation in the transaction where the sale of assets at the end of the year has increased profits and transmitted to third parties. In the first three quarters of 2018, Dafu Technology lost 65.59 million yuan, and it is still to be seen whether it can achieve profitability in 2018.
