Exclamation Guangzhou and Gonow sign JV deal

From China Car Times


July 31, 2009
Gonow Auto, a small privately owned SUV and pick-up truck manufacturer based in Taizhou City, has signed a 50:50 joint venture with Guangzhou Automotive Group.

Details of the JV are still sketchy, but it appears that Gonow has put fixed assets into the deal, whilst Guangzhou Auto are set to invest cash into the deal. The deal will see Guangzhou Auto and Gonow move into Gonow’s Hangzhou facility, but it is unclear if they will continue to build Gonow vehicles, or if Guangzhou vehicles will be introduced. It would be wise to remember that Guangzhou did buy Changfeng Auto, another SUV truck maker who plan to build a new range of pick up trucks in China and also hybrid SUV’s.

Isn't Gonow more of an assembler of SUVs and pickups than a manufacturer? I'm told they don't manufacturer their own vehicle bodies, and I don't think they produce engines. So I don't know what the giant Guangzhou Auto has to gain, except maybe a plant location further north, that might fit in with their independent automaking plans.
Perhaps our friend Jason of Gonow can shed some light on this.

GAC, Gonow to sign restructuring deal soon

April 20, 2010
Reportedly, Guangzhou Automobile Industry Group Co., Ltd. (GAC) has reached an acquisition agreement with Chinese minicar maker Zhejiang Gonow Auto Co., Ltd. and the contract will be signed in Hangzhou, the capital city of East China's Zhejiang province, on April 26 2010.

This is GAC's second restructuring in China after its previous acquisition of the Hunan Changfeng Motor Co Ltd. (Presently known as GAC Changfeng Motor Co Ltd.) The restructuring complies with the company's development thinking of consolidating its geographic advantage in the southern Yangtze River region so that it could benefit enormously from the country's adjustments to the automobile industry layout.

A source in the Gonow Auto said the acquisition is a matter of fact, but now the two sides speak with one voice on it that all information will be officially released after the conference on April 26. He also said the deal between GAC and Gonow is to cooperate but not GAC's whole acquisition of the Gonow. Now both sides have made detailed plans for the follow-up development of Gonow, which will be announced after the signing ceremony on April 26.

A long-time observer and industry insider of the GAC said GAC's restructuring Gonow, currently will not create true impact on its magnitude, which is mainly a strategy thought to consolidate GAC's geographic advantage in the southern region so that the company could take advantage of the country's adjustments to the automobile industry layout.

This seems to be the key point of this report. For now it appears to be simply a cooperative venture, giving GAC better access to the more northerly Zhejiang province, with Shanghai just next door. At the same time it gives Gonow a way to deal with the regional protectionism that was also keeping them out of the far south.

Guangzhou Automobile Group Co. (GAC), the largest automaker in southern China, and Gonow Auto Co., a small privately owned SUV and pick-up truck manufacturer based in Taizhou, Zhejiang, have signed today an agreement to create a 51:49 joint venture, the Information Times reported Thursday.

GAC, a partner of Toyota Motor Corp. and Honda Motor Co., has agreed to retain the existing management team of Gonow in the new company, which will have a registered capital of 1.26 billion yuan ($189 million) and will be lead by Gonow chairman Liao Xuezhong.

Gonow will not largely adjust its product planning, and will still focus on production of micro vehicle, SUV and pickup in the long term. However, its development scale must be enlarged rapidly because GAC wants to increase sales of the restructed Gonow to 600,000 units by 2015, a source from Gonow told the First Financial Daily in October.

Gonow, which sold around 40,000 vehicles last year, currently owns three vehicle manufacturing plants, seven machinery part plants and one research center. Net assets of the company are valued at approximately 3.2 billion yuan.

On April 26, 2010, GAC and Gonow signed a strategic cooperation agreement in Hangzhou, according to which the Guangzhou-based automaker will allocate a certain amount of cash to restructure relevant assets of Gonow and build a new company under the name "Guangqi Gonow", in which GAC will hold 51% stake and the rest 49% stake will belong to Gonow.

This is the first deal in which a state-owned enterprise will acquire a private company in the auto industry and will set an example for similar deals in the future, en.21cbh.com said.
