High debt expansion,Net profitSliding

SF Holdings has achieved remarkable results in the expansion of its new logistics business.

However, SF Holdings’ huge investment in new business areas also caused the company’s net profit to decline significantly and the debt ratio to rise rapidly. As of the third quarter of 2018, the company's net profit attributable to listed companies was 3.028 billion yuan, down 16.87% year-on-year;interest rateA sharp drop of 18.41%.

The number of competitors has increased, and the core business has been attacked by the enemy.
“At present, consumers who are in need of aging are basically using SF, and this business is close to the ceiling.” A senior logistics industry expert said that the contents currently being mailed through SF products arecontractAnd invoice-based, and with the promotion of electronic invoices and contracts, this business will face greater uncertainty.
Logistics companies with rapid market share such as Zhongtong and Yunda are accelerating direct sales and increasing investment in logistics service quality. Tongda is also moving towards the high-end market, trying to get rid of excessive dependence on low-cost e-commerce express parts.
Faced with competition from within the express delivery industry, SF Holdings' strategy is to consolidate the moat of time-sensitive business components. In 2009, SF Airlines was established, the express company bought the aircraft, and the fleet size continued to expand. As of the end of 2017, SF has 41 self-owned freighters, 16 rental full cargo aircraft, 57 routes and 396 pilots, making it the largest cargo airline in China.
“Shunfeng’s expansion of aircraft and airports is very powerful.” Express expert Zhao Xiaomin said that the construction of the airport is a long-term investment. Having an airplane and an airport means having an infrastructure for international business and mastering the path to the world.
In the third quarterly report of 2018, SF Holdings expects that the fleet size will reach 70 in the next three years. However, compared with international logistics giants, there is still a large gap in the number of aircraft.FedExThere are more than 670 aircraft, UPS has more than 640, and DHL has more than 420.
“The logistics giant has already done its best to the service. There is great uncertainty in whether SF Holdings’ current large-scale investment can achieve differentiated competition.” Gong Fuzhao, a logistics industry expert and founder of Shuangyu Consulting, said that the international logistics giant has formed a voice. The barriers to entering the international market are very high.
The heavy self-operated system has become the bottleneck of SF Holdings. Zhao Xiaomin said that with the continuous increase in labor costs, if SF Holdings' new growth point is less than expected, it will directly affect its share price performance. In September 2017, Ali added 5.3 billion yuan to invest in rookie. According to this calculation, the valuation of rookie logistics has exceeded 130 billion yuan. andJingdongAfter the completion of the financing of 2.5 billion US dollars, the valuation of logistics has exceeded 100 billion yuan. The gap between the market value of the two and SF Holdings has become smaller and smaller, which will further challenge SF's status.
The industry believes that SF Holdings is not only facing the internal competition pressure between the traditional express industry brothers such as “three links and one”, but also faces external competitive pressure from e-commerce logistics and heavy goods flow enterprises, and is also affected by the rookie network and Jingdong Logistics. The serious challenge.
