Company 公司 > Chairman's Statement 主席致辭
 
 

Dear Shareholders,

On behalf of the board of directors (the "Board"), I hereby present the annual results of Brilliance China Automotive Holdings Limited (the "Company", together with its subsidiaries, the "Group") for the year ended 31st December, 2022.

The Chinese economy continued to face challenges in 2022 and China's GDP grew mildly at 3.0% for the full year. According to the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers, total vehicle production and sales in China increased by 3.4% to 27.0 million units and 2.1% to 26.9 million units respectively in 2022, which ranked the largest in the world consecutively for 14 years. Sales of passenger cars increased by 9.5% to 23.6 million units. Sales of new energy vehicles ("NEVs") (including battery electric vehicles ("BEVs"), plug-in hybrid electric vehicles and also fuel cell vehicles) increased significantly to 6.9 million units, up 93.4% from 2021. Premium passenger vehicle sales continued to grow at 11.1% to 3.9 million units outperforming the overall market. The strong performance of premium passenger vehicle sales was driven by the consumption upgrade trend resulting from the increasing income level of consumers in China.

In spite of the challenging operating environment due to COVID-19 pandemic, temporary shutdown of dealers, geopolitical tension, industry-wide shortage in chip supply and rising raw material costs, BMW Brilliance Automotive Ltd. ("BBA") continued to deliver remarkable results with both record sales volume and profit for the year and participate in the long-term growth story of China. With strong dedication of the teams and support from BMW, BBA was able to maintain sufficient production to meet strong customer demands. BBA also took advantage of market opportunities to further improve price realisation. At the same time, BBA opened its Dadong Plant extension and new Lydia Plant according to schedule. These new capacities will support the planned launches of new models in 2022 and beyond. BBA's dealer network nationwide reached 625 full service 4S/5S shops by the end of the year.

For new models, BBA successfully launched the All-New BMWi3 (a long-wheelbase BEV version of the 3-series model) and the All-New X5 (a long-wheelbase model) in 2022. Unit sales of BEVs in China doubled to over 45,000 units for the year. BBA exported almost 30,000 units of iX3 in 2022. Going forward, NEVs are expected to constitute a higher percentage of the total production of BBA.

BBA is committed to be a leader in premium e-mobility in China, and is working with BMW to explore new technologies and accelerate sustainability throughout the entire electric vehicle value chain. Ling Yue Digital Information Technology Company Limited, a whollyowned subsidiary of BBA, provides services including data solutions, digital solutions, customer relationship management, e-commerce and IT development and operations for BBA and BMW entities in China. Its core competencies have enhanced customer interaction and satisfaction (via over 7 million users of My BMW App), acted as a customer relationship management tool and identified sales leads, and also drove e-commerce transactions.

In 2022, Ningbo Yumin Machinery Industrial Co., Ltd. ("Ningbo Yumin") achieved a mild growth in revenue but margin was squeezed by price cuts from customers and inflated key raw material (aluminium alloys) costs. It has secured 5 new customers (including 2 overseas customers) and undertook 20 new development projects. The number of new businesses increased by 70% year-on-year, and a number of innovative products were developed. Ningbo Yumin was rated as a Zhejiang provincial level enterprise technology research and development ("R&D") center. In 2022, its production and sale of sunroof guide rail products accounted for about 21% of the market share in China and maintained its number one position.

Mianyang Brilliance Ruian Automotive Components Co., Ltd. ("Mianyang Ruian"), another wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company, continued to engage in the R&D and manufacture of camshafts for petrol vehicle and EV engines. In 2022, it achieved single digit growth in sales and profit amid challenging operating environment. Vehicles equipped with its products (such as NEVs of Li Auto and Geely) were launched with favourable response and sales performance. Mianyang Ruian will take advantage of its core R&D capability to actively participate in the NEV sector, and make efforts to achieve breakthroughs in the range-extended hybrid and plug-in hybrid vehicle segments.

Our minibus and light commercial vehicle business carried out by Renault Brilliance Jinbei Automotive Company Limited ("RBJAC") has applied to the Intermediate People's Court of Shenyang City, Liaoning Province (遼寧省瀋陽市中級人民法院)on 30th December, 2021 for a restructuring which had been ongoing throughout 2022. The Board is evaluating various strategic options for RBJAC from an operational perspective.

Despite the overall challenging operating environment and the higher refinancing costs that Brilliance – BEA Auto Finance Co., Ltd. ("BBAFC"), our auto finance subsidiary in China, was facing due to the ongoing and extended Huachen group restructuring, it achieved profitable results in 2022. BBAFC has expanded its new business cooperation with carefully selected NEV partners in China including Tesla and Li Auto. In February 2023, BBAFC successfully completed its first green and carbon neutral RMB235 million syndication bank loan which paved the way for more stable and diversified funding sources.

During the year, the Board had resolved to declare a special dividend of HK$0.96 per ordinary share of the Company in connection with the disposal of its 25% interest in BBA. With China's ambition to resume its normal growth trajectory post pandemic since the beginning of 2023, the Board is optimistic about the performance of our group companies. In addition, the Board will continue to seek suitable strategic investments primarily within the automobile industry value chain which could generate sustainable business growth for the Group.

Last but not least, I would like to express my sincere appreciation to our shareholders, business partners, management teams and employees for their continued support and dedication to the Group.

  尊敬的股東們:

本人謹代表董事會(「董事會」)提呈華晨中國汽車控股有限公司(「本公司」,連同其附屬公司統稱「本集團」)截至二零二二年十二月三十一日止年度之全年業績。

中國經濟於二零二二年繼續面對重重挑戰,中國全年國內生產總值溫和增長3.0%。根據中國汽車工業協會的資料,二零二二年中國汽車總產量增加3.4%至27,000,000輛,而總銷量則增加2.1%至26,900,000輛,連續14年全球最高。乘用車銷量增長9.5%至23,600,000輛。新能源汽車(「NEVs」)(包括電池電動車(「BEVs」)、插電式混合動力汽車及燃料電池車)銷量大幅增加至6,900,000輛,較二零二一年上升93.4%。豪華乘用車銷量繼續增長,增加11.1%至3,900,000輛,跑贏整體市場。豪華乘用車強勁之銷量表現源自中國消費者收入水平上升形成之消費升級潮。

儘管COVID-19疫情、經銷商暫停營業、地緣政治關係緊張、全行業晶片供應短缺加上原材料成本上漲,經營環境困難,惟華晨寶馬汽車有限公司(「華晨寶馬」)再次交出驕人業績,年內銷量及溢利同創新高,乘著中國長期增長之勢騰飛。憑藉竭誠盡心的團隊及寶馬的支持,華晨寶馬得以維持足夠產能應付殷切的客戶需求。華晨寶馬亦把握市場機遇,進一步改善售價。與此同時,華晨寶馬如期啟用其大東廠房擴建部分及新建Lydia廠房。新增產能將支援之前計劃於二零二二年及以後推出之新型號。華晨寶馬之全國經銷網絡於年底擁有625間全方位服務4S/5S店舖。

新型號方面,華晨寶馬於二零二二年成功推出全新寶馬i3(3系型號之長軸距BEV版本)及全新X5(長軸距型號)。中國BEVs銷量倍增至超過45,000輛。華晨寶馬於二零二二年出口近30,000輛iX3。展望未來,預期NEVs將佔華晨寶馬總產量更大比重。

華晨寶馬致力成為中國豪華電動汽車領先供應商,現時正與寶馬共同探索新技術,加快整條電動汽車價值鏈之可持續發展。領悅數字信息技術有限公司(華晨寶馬之全資附屬公司)於中國為華晨寶馬及寶馬各實體提供數據解決方案、數碼解決方案、客戶關係管理、電子商貿及資訊科技開發及營運等服務。其核心能力已增強客戶互動及滿意度(My BMW App擁有超過7,000,000名使用者),並充當客戶關係管理工具,識別銷售線索,同時推動電子商貿交易。

於二零二二年,寧波裕民機械工業有限公司(「寧波裕民」)錄得溫和收益增長,惟利潤因客戶降價及主要原材料(鋁合金)成本上漲而收窄。寧波裕民開拓5名新客戶(包括2名海外客戶),並承接開發新專案20項。新業務數目按年增長70%,並已開發出多項創新產品。寧波裕民獲評為浙江省「專精特新」企業和省級企業技術研發(「研發」)中心。於二零二二年,其天窗導軌產品之產銷約佔中國市場份額21%,繼續穩佔第一位。

本公司的另一間全資附屬公司綿陽華晨瑞安汽車零部件有限公司(「綿陽瑞安」)繼續從事汽油車及電動車發動機凸輪軸研發與製造。二零二二年,綿陽瑞安在困難經營環境中取得個位數銷售額及溢利增長。搭載其產品之汽車(如理想汽車及吉利的NEVs)已經上市,反響及銷售表現不俗。綿陽瑞安將憑藉其核心研發實力積極參與NEV市場,並致力在增程式混合動力汽車及插電式混合動力汽車領域取得突破。

我們的輕型客車及輕型商用車業務由華晨雷諾金杯汽車有限公司(「華晨雷諾」)負責營運。華晨雷諾於二零二一年十二月三十日向遼寧省瀋陽市中級人民法院申請重整。重整於二零二二年仍在進行。董事會現正從營運層面評估華晨雷諾的各項策略性方案。

儘管經營環境整體困難,而本集團旗下之中國汽車金融附屬公司華晨東亞汽車金融有限公司(「華晨東亞汽車金融」)亦因華晨集團重整持續並延遲而面對再融資成本上升,然而,華晨東亞汽車金融於二零二二年仍然錄得盈利業績。華晨東亞汽車金融已擴展新業務,與Tesla及理想汽車等精挑細選之中國NEV夥伴合作。於二零二三年二月,華晨東亞汽車金融成功完成其首個綠色及碳中和人民幣2.35億元銀團貸款,開拓更穩定及多元化的資金來源。

年內,董事會議決就出售其於華晨寶馬之25%權益宣派特別股息每股本公司普通股0.96港元。鑑於中國自二零二三年初以來一直堅持在疫後重回正常增長軌道,董事會對本集團旗下各公司之表現感到樂觀。此外,董事會將主要於汽車產業價值鏈中,繼續發掘可為本集團帶來可持續業務增長之合適策略性投資項目。

最後,本人對一直以來支持本集團並對本集團作出貢獻之股東、業務夥伴、管理團隊及僱員深表謝意。
