market demand remains weak, capital chain tension escalated, steel mills and coal companies that try to rejoice "enemy" to start a new cooperation mode.
recently news, huaibei mining, joint steel electric business platform to try to steel in masteel coal model of cooperation. allegedly, huaibei mining and masteel have through this model, has realized the equivalent of 9936 tons of steel flow value of the goods. futures daily reporter learned that, at present in addition to huaibei mining with masteel, jin coal, huainan mining and so on are involved in such business.
nishimoto shinkansen, a senior researcher at qiu yuecheng said, "to the steel in coal," is this model under the condition of the individual enterprise management difficult to appear, "coal companies have no way would take over steel".
in fact, with finished goods in exchange for raw materials in the steel industry chain in the capital of previous precedent. zhuo chong, an analyst zhang told reporters that this pattern first appeared in the coal industry, coal industry recession in recent years, coking enterprises in order to reduce cash disbursements, and using coke also has appeared in the phenomenon of coal. "on both steel in coal, steel, in coke, or with coke in coal, the emergence of this model is mainly caused by capital chain tension, as well as downstream demand is weak." zhang min the truth.
it is reported, in the middle of april, the china banking regulatory commission issued a "about to import iron ore trade finance research situation quickly notice, an iron ore trade finance. as regulators of further tightening of iron ore trade financing, some steel mills was missing a financing channels, financing environment deteriorating even further.
zhang said, steel mills funds nervous, have no money to downstream coal enterprise payment, so can only use steel for the mortgage. at the same time, the current coal downstream demand remains weak, coal enterprise common stock is more, with the coal in steel can alleviate the pressure of the stock of some coal enterprises. according to introducing, at present the coal enterprise itself has certain steel demand, such as the construction of coal mine under construction as well as the existing mine upgraded, all need to use steel.
"coal companies would rather sell steel, even losses, should be drained, cash flow is too important to the enterprise." in zhang's view, at present, whether it's steel mills, coal, or coking plant, the most important problem is the capital chain tension. these companies usually have a bank loan, money can't do up, is unable to repay the loan. banks once closed, the enterprise may not far away from the collapse of bankruptcy.
however, a number of people in the industry told reporters that in steel in coal this model is just the individual phenomenon, it is difficult to spread in the industry. analysts believe that this model is in the case of weak demand, inventory backlog, temporarily formed a way of mutual aid between upstream and downstream.
analysts said, although there are some enterprises to change "to the steel coal", but it is difficult to promote. this model only product dosage is big can have certain effect, only in a big promotion between businesses, and these enterprises should was originally a long-term strategic cooperation partners.
