2012 is a difficult year for the LED epitaxial chip industry, with serious overcapacity and continuous price decline.
The cruel market situation has led to the withdrawal or shelving of some chip projects.
However, in the view of Chen Kai, general manager of Aoyang Shunchang, the winter of LED is about to pass, and it has gradually warmed up in the first half of 2013, and it is more obvious in the second half.
The price of LED products is gradually declining, accelerating its replacement of traditional lamps. The future development prospect of LED lighting demand will be far better than before.

The price of 12 yuan/share will increase by no more than 0. 1 billion shares and raise no more than 5. RMB 1. 2 billion.
After deducting the distribution fee, 0. 4 billion yuan will be used for LED epitaxial wafer and chip industrialization projects (Phase I)0. 1 billion yuan is used to supplement working capital. The total investment of the above LED project is 8.
0. 8 billion yuan, the construction period of the project is 30 months. After the project is completed and completed, an annual output of 1. 8 million blue-green LED epitaxial wafers will be formed (Calculated by folding 2-inch epitaxial wafer)
The production capacity of 11. 5 billion blue-green chips is expected to reach the annual sales revenue of 7. After production. 0. 2 billion yuan, annual after-tax profit 1. RMB 6. 9 billion.
Cui Shutian, a researcher at Guotai Junan Securities, believes that if the issuance is successful, 30 MOCVD equipment in Aoyang Shunchang will be fully produced in early 2015. It is estimated that the after-tax profit will contribute about 0. 1 billion yuan, about twice the existing profit scale.
On December 3-4, a reporter from 21st Century Business Herald learned during an investigation in Huai'an, Jiangsu that there are currently 5 MOCVD equipment in mass production for the Aoyang Shunchang LED project, and the company has re-ordered 5 sets of 69 machines will arrive at the end of December this year.
If there is no accident, there will be 10 MOCVD equipment in the first quarter of next year.

According to the information provided by the management, the reasons for the early profitability of the project are: first, the mass production of the existing 5 MOCVD equipment is progressing smoothly, and the chip products are sold well.
Second, the progress of product technology upgrading is relatively fast, and some medium-brightness chips with high gross profit margin have been sold.
Downstream orders indicate a recovery. Our equipment is 69 machines, and downstream customers are mainly manufacturers of lamps and lanterns in Guangdong.
Since April this year, we feel that there are more and more orders from LED downstream. Chen Wei said.
