2,700 layoffs, losses 6 billion, NIO has no future?

By the end of 2022, NIO had a total of 26,763 employees. On November 3, NIO Chairperson and CEO Li Bin said in a letter to all NIO employees that about 10% of positions would be reduced, meaning that about 2,700 people would be laid off.

On August 29, 2023, NIO announced the second quarter financial report. The financial report shows that the revenue decreased by 14.8% year-on-year to 8.7717 billion yuan, the gross profit decreased by 93.5% year-on-year to 87 million yuan, the net loss 6.0558 billion yuan increased by 119.6% year-on-year, and the adjusted net loss was 5.4457 billion yuan, an increase of 140.2% year-on-year. (Normally, NIO will release the third quarter financial report of 2023 around November 9, but as of the date of publication, it has not been seen for a long time, and the estimated data is not optimistic.)

As of October this year, NIO’s total sales were 126,067 vehicles, ahead of XPeng Motors’ 101,445 vehicles, but far below Li Auto’s 284,647 vehicles.

The level of sales is the bedrock of a car company’s economy, and a series of data suggest that NIO’s life in 2023 will indeed be difficult.

Although NIO’s sales and profits are average, it is also quietly doing big things.

As of November 1, NIO has built 2,079 power stations and 19,579 charging piles around the world, including more than 2,000 power stations in China and more than 600 high-speed stations. At the same time, NIO’s overseas and domestic stores are also increasing, with 25 new stores added in October.

The layout of NIO’s charging and swapping network and stores has undoubtedly improved the car experience of NIO owners and expanded the influence of NIO, but many people believe that the construction and operation costs of NIO swapping stations are too high, and the global rollout takes up a lot of money.

If the cost of a power station 3 million (including land, personnel, battery loss, etc.), the NIO 2000 power stations need at least 6 billion to support. More importantly, NIO power stations only serve NIO owners, and NIO promises to owners that there will be free power changes every year, so the profitability of NIO power stations is about equal to none compared with 6 billion.

In addition, with the rapid development of overcharging technology and battery technology, the charging time has been greatly shortened, the battery life of pure electric vehicles has also been greatly improved, and the advantage of fast power station replacement has been gradually weakened.

Writing here, the author wants to apologize for the NIO power station replacement.

The author has personally experienced the second and third generation of NIO power station, and the average power change time is only 3-5 minutes. No matter how fast the overcharge speed is, it is impossible for them to fully charge a 75KW/h and 100KW/h battery within 3 minutes at this stage, and the charging time will even be extended due to the instability of the charging pile voltage. If there is no revolutionary breakthrough in power battery technology, the charging speed of the power station cannot be shaken.

The power station takes up most of NIO’s resources, but it also brings a lot of convenience to users, and at this stage, the power station and the overcharge complement each other, and it is far from the day when the winner will be decided.

NIO’s predicament today is mainly caused by high prices and low sales.

At present, NIO’s product system has covered many aspects such as cars, SUVs, coupe SUVs, station wagons, etc. It is the car company with the most models and the widest layout among the three car companies of "Wei Xiaoli". Friends who are familiar with NIO know that the price of its models is generally high. If it were not for the price reduction of NIO ES6 and NIO ET5 and ET5T, NIO’s cars would not be lower than 300,000 at all, especially NIO ES8 high-end models. Correction is approaching 600,000.

The advantage of many models and high prices is that it has cut into a more subdivided market, stabilized NIO’s high-end brand perception, but also entered the sphere of influence of traditional luxury brands and emerging brands such as Tesla.

NIO ET5 and ET5T priced at 29.8-356,000 yuan have no advantage over Tesla Model 3 and BMW 3 Series in price, and belong to the level of half a catty to eight taels in control and comfort. The biggest advantage is that ET5T has design advantages in order to stabilize the monthly average of 5000 vehicles (ET5 and ET5T), which can be compared with BMW 3 Series and Tesla Model 3 with an average of 1-20,000 units.

In fact, NIO has tasted the sweetness brought by the price reduction, in June NIO all models down 30,000 yuan, although the cancellation of free power exchange and other parts of the rights and interests, but NIO new ES6, ET5T, ET5, ES8 and other models sales or a significant increase, its July sales is the first time in the year to break through the 20,000, especially the new ES6 of 11118 vehicles, become the absolute main force of NIO.

At this stage, many car companies are deliberately setting the price of new cars for sales, such as Zhiji LS6, Xiaopeng G6, Xiaopeng G9, etc., and the effect is quite positive. Xiaopeng G6’s October sales are 8,741 units, Xiaopeng G9 is listed for 15 days, and Zhiji LS6 is 28,000 units.

Now NIO really don’t have to hold it for high-end brand perception. It is the most practical to cancel part of the rights and interests to give consumers real money discounts in order to sell sales. What about the future of NIO? Layoffs and losses are just a small episode in its growth process. Even if Li Jiebin picks it up, with the scale of NIO charging stations and stores, as well as the annual sales of 150,000 vehicles, capital and major car companies will not give up easily.

Listen, Progress: A Detail of the Huawei Ascend P7

Last week, Huawei invited us to a product briefing on the Ascend P7 to explain in detail almost all the details behind the development of this new flagship. Leaving with a white version of the P7 in my hand, I think this is a very sincere but risky move by Huawei, because on the one hand Huawei has given us a full understanding of the ingenuity behind the product – but at the same time, it will arouse my curiosity to taste the product carefully, which means that no details will be missed in the process.

The hardware information about the P7 will not be repeated, and interested readers can rewind it toTake a look hereAfter a week of use, the outline of this Huawei’s annual flagship has gradually become three-dimensional. In appearance, the P7 still adopts the same design as the P6But unlike the metal back shell of the P6, the P7 this time uses front and rear glass (Corning’s Gorilla III), with a sandwich structure with a full metal frame in the middle. Huawei said that the advantage of using Gorilla III as the back cover material is that it is wear-resistant and has a flatter feel.

The 7-layer coated back cover mentioned in the promotion does have a bonus. If you take a closer look, you will find that the back cover of the P7 is not simply milky white, but has countless fine dots and lines interlaced. Especially when there is external light hitting the fuselage, you will see the unique "ripple pattern" that is unique to the brushed metal shell.

As for its grip, one word, cold. 6.5mm thickness, 124g weight, all-metal frame, the feeling that feeds back to the fingers is light and cold. This kind of finger feels out of place with body temperature as it slides over the glass and metal of the fuselage, giving the fuselage a sense of cheapness. I think even in 2014, all-metal frame can still make an excellent, timeless design.

DSCF3450The newly designed power button has a good texture, but it seems to have a trace of Sony


Compared with the previous generation of P6, the production process of P7 has made a big leap. We will no longer see the SIM card holder and frame with inconsistent paint color. There are no terrible gaps, and there are more delicate spiral texture all-metal power keys. In addition, Huawei revealed that the P7 is assembled using "zero labor". In simple terms, even if the most advanced manufacturing process is used, there will be certain errors between parts. Therefore, during the assembly process, Huawei will find the component group with the highest degree of mutual fit for assembly to ensure that there will be no process problems in the product shell when it leaves the factory. At least this P7 in my hand meets this definition.

In addition to the improvement of the manufacturing process, as mentioned in the previous article, in order to better meet the user’s usage habits, Huawei has absorbed the P6 experience and readjusted the position of the P7 data and headphone interface, so it has specially designed a new miniature antenna for this purpose.

But even so, I still think the P7 has some room for improvement. For example, when Huawei designed a delicate metal frame around the camera of the P7, but the earphone jack less than two centimeters away is a simple and rough opening, this kind of "schizophrenia" in design thinking inevitably makes people feel abrupt. In addition, although it can be seen that the designer specially made a concave design for the speaker on the back of the fuselage, because the speaker is too thin, as long as there is a barrier on the back of the phone, it will greatly affect the external quality.



Regarding the introduction of hardware and performance, there are several fixed links that come and go. Review the configuration:

  • Android 4.4.2 + Emotion UI 2.3;
  • 4G LTE (Cat 4) with a maximum download speed of 150Mbps.
  • 5 inch 1080P full fit high definition LCD (ppi 445);
  • 1.8GHz HiSilicon Kirin 910T quad-core processor;
  • Mali 450 GPU;
  • 2GB RAM + 16GB ROM (supports up to 64GB microSD card expansion);
  • 800/13 million pixel front and rear cameras;
  • 2500mAh battery.

The system is based on Android 4.4.2 Emotion UI 2.3, which officially claims to have made more than 200 improvements to the previous version. In actual use, the Emotion UI system running on the P7 is stable and smooth. In terms of screen, the P7 finally swept away the haze of the P6, ppi is 445 full high definition 5 inch screen, JDI top panel with full fitting process, even if it did not catch up with the 2K screen trend, but the P7 still provides users with absolutely excellent display effect.

However, for the hardware of the P7, I believe everyone is most concerned about the HiSilicon four-core processor developed by Huawei. The Kirin 910T four-core processor running at 1.8GHz on the P7 is actually designed based on the ARM A9 standard. The rest is equipped with a display core Mali 450 and 2GB random access memory.

If we use quantitative means to measure the performance of P7, AntuTu’s running score is about 25,000 points. It is basically at the level of Snapdragon 600 or MTK octa-core processor this year. As for actual use, the P7 brings excellent experience in system interaction, daily applications, and browsing a web. Consistent with my experience of evaluating many high, medium, and low-configuration mobile phones in the past, in today’s operating system has been greatly improved and hardware performance is excessive, there is no equal sign between excellent user experience and heap hardware.

It should be pointed out that the P7 can occasionally struggle to navigate certain web portals or large 3D games, so when choosing this product, you need to ask yourself what your true performance needs are: this product can meet most of your daily needs, but if you are a serious 3D game enthusiast, there are better options on the market.

However, this still prompts me to think. Since it is a flagship, I think the most conventional way of thinking should be to apply the latest and best to this product. Because consumers are emotional, everyone wants a product that is known as a flagship and has the best "indicators" – who cares if there is excess performance! I try to use limited IQ to explore the reasons why Huawei insists on using HiSilicon from the perspective of products:

1. Heat dissipation. For the P series, Huawei has always been proud of the ultra-thin body record that this series has maintained. As a 4G LTE mobile phone, the 6.5mm thickness of the P7 is actually an excellent set of numbers. However, correspondingly, the ultra-thin makes the power consumption of the mobile phone core a key consideration. The HiSilicon four-core chip on the P7 undoubtedly meets Huawei’s requirements in this regard. Specifically, in the copy machine process, the shell temperature of the P7 is only slightly hot throughout. Imagine that if such a thin body is equipped with a Snapdragon 800-level processor, the heat will be very amazing.

2. Profit margin.

3. A little bit of ambition. HiSilicon has been used many times on flagship models, which shows that Huawei, which has a technical background, wants to support its ambition to develop mobile chipsets independently.

But in general, I still Huawei only relies on thin and light to make up for the lack of performance, and does not use the brand perception between the core high-end user base.

If the performance of the P7 can’t surprise consumers too much, then I believe that taking pictures can make it save a game. First of all, the P7 has made a great favor to female users who like to take selfies, equipped with a front-facing camera with pixels up to 8 million and an aperture of 2.4, and built-in automatic beauty function.

The rear camera uses Sony’s fourth-generation stacked photosensitive elements, with 13 million pixels and 2.0 aperture. And the front and rear two of the P7 are designed with 5 aspherical lenses, which the official claims can maximize the picture clarity, and the anti-distortion and purple edge capabilities are also better.

From the proofs, the P7’s photo quality is solid. Although we can still see slight dispersion and purple edges at the edges of the photo, the overall photo is quite sharp. In addition, I specially took pictures in some backlight and dark environments, and found that the P7 film still maintains good sharpness and retains rich details in low-light environments. The color of the film is too bright, it is a matter of opinion.







In addition, the P7 provides the function of quickly starting the camera. As long as you press the volume-button twice in a row in the sleep state (and this button also acts as a shutter), the P7 can automatically take a photo and then open the camera application, providing a very convenient mechanism for capturing. In the communication, Huawei revealed that in order to keep the entire capture process at 1.2 seconds, in addition to the customized ISP (image processor), the team has also optimized the bottom layer of the system.

In actual use, if the photo is output at the maximum resolution, the P7’s fast capture can basically be completed at the nominal speed. However, I found that such a fast capture also comes with a certain price. For example, when you start the capture quickly, the camera will automatically ignore the "focus" process and shoot at an infinite focal length. That is to say, if you are capturing objects at medium and long distances, it will be very suitable for using this function, but if you are capturing at close range, you will get a photo that is out of focus.

IMG_20140514_150001Snap mode only supports infinite focus

Emotion UI is already very familiar to many people. It adopts the single-layer interactive interface that is common in domestic ROMs, and even new users have no learning cost. Another major feature of Emotion UI is that it supports the bottom system bar, which has the advantage of making full use of the screen area in videos, games, and browsing a web. However, I found that some games do not support the hidden low bar very well. Users need to hide the low bar in advance before entering the game, otherwise if the low bar is hidden after entering the game, a blank bar will appear. However, this problem is not big, and I hope it can be solved through software updates in the future.

In addition, if the user hides the low bar, Huawei also provides an auxiliary floating button (similar to the small dots of the iOS).




A good thing for small white users is that the built-in mobile housekeeper of Emotion UI can intelligently manage the programs that consume resources and power in the background, and automatically block some applications that will pop up. In terms of ease of use and peace of mind, Emotion UI is very considerate.

Huawei has also made a lot of efforts in UI design, which has been criticized in the past. It has to be said that after so many iterations of Emotion UI, great progress has been made in art design, and the official also provides a very rich backup theme for users to choose from, such as the "Impression Merry" theme used in the evaluation of P7, which is very popular with us.

However, the fly in the ointment was that even though the theme was changed, the lower-level menus such as the notification center and the settings interface still retained the original ecology, which gave people a clear sense of incompatibility. In addition, for example, the pull-up toolbar under the lock screen and some desktop plug-ins used too much glass element effect, which was not very harmonious with the overall design.


DSCF3471Some UI designs still have some traces of inspiration

The 2500 mAh battery is considered a qualified line in the Android camp. Under moderate use in one day, the P7 will have about 30% of the power left, and it is inevitable to charge one battery at a time. However, this time Huawei has added the "super power saving" function that has been popular in recent years, that is, turning off all functions except initial phone calls and text messages in exchange for the most optimized standby ability. I really did an experiment. At 12 o’clock in the evening, the P7 entered the super power saving mode when the power was left at 9%, and found that there was still 9% power at 8 o’clock the next day. Therefore, in special cases, this kind of function still has great practicality.

Last year, the P6 was a product with obvious shortcomings. This year’s P7, we saw Huawei listening. Even though it remains thin and light, the P7 has successfully changed the various shortcomings caused by last year’s thin and thin, and the whole machine design has become very reasonable. As a dual-card dual-mode 4G LTE mobile phone with excellent workmanship and a body thickness of only 6.5mm, the Ascend P7 reflects Huawei’s strong hardware integration capabilities. We believe that in addition to the slight regret in performance, from all aspects, the P7 is definitely qualified to become Huawei’s representative model in 2014.

After no longer relying on high-precision maps, the number of cities covered by the intelligent driving system will increase in geometric levels, which is more convenient to use. At the same time, the system can learn by itself and continuously optimize the algorithm to make up for the problem of road construction and road closure environment changes. In addition, it can be used even without the network, as long as the user selects the destination and does it with one click. Integrate the GOD network to build road information in real time, integrate real-time information of road conditions, and select road sections with higher traffic efficiency according to road

  The second is the upgrade of the chassis. The Huawei iTRACK dynamic torque distribution system is introduced, which uses microsecond-level ultra-fine real-time road condition sensing technology to scan the road environment. When encountering complex road conditions such as speed bumps and low-attachment roads, millisecond-level torque fine-tuning can be realized to improve the ride comfort and safety of the whole vehicle. In terms of vertical turbulence suppression performance, Huawei iTRACK further reduces the sense of impact, and maximizes the bumps through wheel-end torque control to achieve speed reduction belt coasting feedback. The wheel-end speed fluctuation is reduced by 30%, which can realize that drinks are not spilled at the center console, passenger rest is not affected, co-pilot makeup is not shaken, and driving is not bumpy. Huawei iTRACK can be adapted to two-wheel drive and four-wheel drive models. After the intervention of Huawei iTRACK in different configuration versions, the measured data of the speed bump has been significantly improved, and the road conditions such as bumps have been leisurely weathered. It provides low-attached road coasting feedback, reducing the speed difference between the front and rear wheels by 25%, and driving smoother. It also provides low-attached road driving, reducing the speed difference between the front and rear wheels by 40%. High-speed driving in extreme weather does not skid. The driving in scenarios such as basement parking and low-speed driving at water beaches is also smooth and worry-free, and the kinetic energy recovery is more economical.

Tencent makes another move! 101 repurchases during the year

In the past two trading days, Tencent Holdings in the Hong Kong stock market has conducted the 100th and 101st repurchase operations of the year.

On November 22, Tencent Holdings disclosed that it repurchased 1.23 million shares on the same day at a cost of 401 million Hong Kong dollars. This is the 100th time Tencent has repurchased this year. On November 23, Tencent Holdings repurchased 1.23 million shares again. Since the beginning of this year, Tencent Holdings has repurchased 113 million shares, and the cumulative repurchase amount 37.382 billion Hong Kong dollars.

As of the close on November 23, Tencent’s share price was HK $329.2 per share, a cumulative rebound of about 17% from the phased low set on October 25. Based on the total repurchase price/cumulative number of repurchases, the average repurchase price of Tencent during the year was HK $332.03 per share, slightly higher than the current price.

All repurchased shares have been cancelled in the first three quarters

Statistics show that since last year, Tencent’s average daily repurchase amount has gradually increased. From the end of August last year to the end of May this year, Tencent’s daily repurchase amount was about 350 million Hong Kong dollars. But since June this year, Tencent’s average daily repurchase amount has increased to about 400 million Hong Kong dollars, evolving into "four hundred million".

In February 2021, Tencent’s share price reached a peak of HK $704.6/share, but due to the reduction of major shareholders, changes in international financial marekt and market concerns about the slowdown in the company’s growth rate, Tencent’s share price has been under pressure. At the end of October 2022, Tencent’s share price once fell to HK $187.29/share. Since then, Tencent’s share price has bottomed out and rebounded. In March this year, the share price was close to HK $400/share, and then continued to fluctuate. As of the close of November 23, Tencent’s share price was HK $329.2/share.

Since October 25, 2022, Tencent’s share price has risen by nearly 70%, which is related to the favorable policies of the Internet sector, the improvement of its own performance, and the spare efforts to repurchase.

Tencent Holdings disclosed in the 2022 annual financial report that in 2022, Tencent repurchased about 107 million shares, which cost more than 33.80 billion Hong Kong dollars. Since 2023, Tencent has repurchased 113 million shares, which cost 37.382 billion Hong Kong dollars. This means that the amount of repurchases this year has exceeded that of last year.

The general manager of a private equity firm in Shenzhen said that Tencent is a company with strong cash flow. In the past, Tencent bought many high-quality company assets through foreign investment, which drove the growth of the company’s revenue and total profit. Since the second half of 2021, Tencent’s foreign investment has declined, and its huge operating cash flow has been concentrated in share buybacks.

Tencent’s buyback partly hedged a sell by Prosus, South Africa’s largest shareholder.

On June 27, 2022, Tencent announced on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange that the company’s major shareholders, Prosus and Naspers, announced that they would start a long-term, open-ended repurchase plan, and the repurchase funds would be obtained through the orderly small sale of Tencent shares by the South African newspaper group.

"In April this year, Prosus deposited 96 million shares of Tencent into the Hong Kong clearing system. It is estimated that Prosus reduced its holdings of Tencent by about 1 million shares per day, accounting for about 4% of Tencent’s average daily turnover. This is roughly equivalent to Tencent’s average daily repurchase of about 1.20 million shares," said Zang Hailiang, director of investment at Yide Wealth.

Regarding the arrangement of share repurchase, Tencent said in the third quarter of this year’s performance report that in the third quarter of 2023, Tencent bought back 47.519 million shares at a total consideration price of about 15.30 billion Hong Kong dollars (excluding expenses) on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange, and these shares have been cancelled. In previous performance reports, Tencent also released similar content.

As of November 23, Tencent’s total share capital had fallen to 9.508 billion shares, close to the total share capital in May 2019. "According to the rules, the repurchase of US and Hong Kong stocks has to be cancelled, thereby reducing the total share capital, which can increase earnings per share while the profit remains unchanged. Over time, the value of the shares in the hands of Tencent’s remaining shareholders will increase," said a senior market person in Hong Kong stocks.

Performance returns to a high-growth track

This year, Tencent returned to the high growth track. Recently, Tencent disclosed the third quarter of 2023 financial report, revenue 154.625 billion yuan (both in RMB, the same below), an increase of 10%; non-international general accounting standards under the net profit of 44.921 billion yuan, an increase of 39%. In the previous two quarters, Tencent’s revenue and net profit growth were also double digits.

Tencent has gradually built up a diverse range of business segments, including value-added services, online advertising, financial technology, and enterprise services.

In the third quarter of 2023, Tencent’s value-added service business revenue was 75.748 billion yuan, an increase of 4% year-on-year, accounting for 49% of total revenue; online advertising business revenue was 25.721 billion yuan, an increase of 20%, accounting for 16% of total revenue; financial technology and Enterprise Services business revenue was 52.048 billion yuan, an increase of 16%, accounting for 34% of total revenue.

"In the third quarter of 2023, we achieved solid and high-quality revenue growth, significant margin improvement, and structured operating leverage. Emerging businesses such as WeChat Channels and Mini Games contributed to our high-margin revenue streams," said Pony Ma, chairperson and chief executive of Tencent.

In light of the development trend of the technology industry, Tencent’s focus is on laying out the AI model. "We are shifting our focus from businesses with less room for development to businesses with higher growth potential," said Pony Ma. "We are investing more in artificial intelligence models to give our products new functions and improve the ability to accurately recommend content and advertising. We are not only committed to positioning our leading artificial intelligence capabilities as a multiplier for our own business development, but also to create value for our corporate customers and society as a whole."

As of November 22, southbound funds held Tencent’s total market value of HK $2958.49 billion, accounting for 9.59% of the issued ordinary shares. However, with the continuous rebound of Tencent’s share price, southbound funds have recently been on the trend of picking up and selling shares in Tencent.
