NDRCs response to the unfinished chip project: a prevention mechanism will be established in some localities blindly going to the project

 NDRCs response to the unfinished chip project: a prevention mechanism will be established in some localities blindly going to the project

However, as mentioned by friends of the reporter, we have also noticed that the enthusiasm for domestic investment in the integrated circuit industry is constantly rising. Some three noes enterprises without experience, technology and talents have joined the integrated circuit industry. Some places do not have enough understanding of the law of the development of integrated circuits. Blind projects and low-level repeated construction risks appear. There are even some projects with stagnant construction and workshops Empty, resulting in a waste of resources.

The national development and Reform Commission has always attached great importance to the healthy and orderly development of the integrated circuit industry. In accordance with the decision-making and deployment of the Party Central Committee and the State Council, the national development and Reform Commission, together with relevant departments, has strengthened top-level design, paid close attention to industrial planning and layout, and made efforts to maintain the order of industrial development. In view of the current industry chaos, the next step will focus on four aspects of work.

One is to strengthen planning and layout. In accordance with the development principle of main body concentration and Regional Agglomeration, we should strengthen the service and guidance for the construction of major IC projects, guide and standardize the development order of IC industry in an orderly manner, and do a good job in planning and layout. Guide the industry to strengthen self-discipline and avoid vicious competition.

The second is to improve the policy system. Accelerate the implementation of GF [2020] No.8 document, that is, some policies on promoting the high-quality development of the integrated circuit industry and software industry in the new period, step up the introduction of supporting measures, further optimize the development environment of the integrated circuit industry, standardize the market order, improve the industrial innovation ability and development quality, and guide the healthy development of the industry.

The third is to establish a preventive mechanism. Establish a long-term working mechanism of early sorting, early discovery, early feedback and early disposal, strengthen risk warning, strengthen communication and coordination with banking institutions and investment funds, and reduce investment risk of major IC projects.

Hebei Star chip factory died: provincial key projects, overseas experts, the company only built a building on no money

Next to the Industrial Street, Hebei angyang Microelectronics Technology Co., Ltd. (hereinafter referred to as angyang company) covers an area of 30 mu in Shijiazhuang circular Chemical Industrial Park. In addition to an unfinished office building, it is an empty wasteland.

Angyang company was once a star enterprise, with a total investment of 1 billion yuan, covering an area of 255 mu. It mainly produces the eighth generation high-end high-power IGBT chips, and has been listed as key projects in Shijiazhuang and Hebei Province. However, the Aoyang chip project failed in 2018. Not only is the project stagnant, the company is in trouble, but the dispute between the two leaders has continued to this day.

In the past two years, bu Jiankang, chairman of angyang company, reported Xu Zhong, the general manager, in his real name, for defrauding government subsidies and state-owned land. Im the tool he used to cheat on government support policies. The land valued at 160 million yuan should not be his private property.

Xu responded to Red Star news that Bu Jiankangs report was nonsense. Xuzhong won the first instance of the dispute between Xu Zhong and bu Jiankang. After mediation by Hebei Higher Peoples court, both sides reached a settlement agreement: the intellectual property rights belong to bu Jiankang, and bu Jiankang transfers 35% of its equity to Xu Guohe and another shareholder.

From star project to unfinished project, the chip project of Aung Yang company has experienced rush to horse, broken capital chain and partner dispute.

Overseas experts return home to cooperate in the research and development of chip companies cant afford to buy land and build a building

Bu Jiankang, 48, is a well-known expert. He went to the United States in 1997 to study and work in the United States for 18 years. He is a middle-level company, mastering high-end high-power chip technology.

In 2015, he went back to his hometown of Hebei Province to start a business. After being introduced, he cooperated with Xu Zhong, a villager of Xucun village in Shijiazhuang recycling chemical industry park, and established angyang company in Shijiazhuang, which is committed to research, development and industrialization of high-end high-power IGBT chips. Relevant materials show that the local government has also given support to this high-tech project, which is listed as key construction project in Hebei Province and a key project in 13th five year plan of provinces and cities.

According to the publicity materials of angyang company, the company is a team of technical experts studying in the United States as the core. Its members are the lifelong director of IEEE, the world authority in the semiconductor field and the R & D director of the top three enterprises in the industry. It has a number of invention patents, and has a comprehensive grasp of the integrated technology of chip design, chip process and post packaging. It has a world-class level It is a high-tech company with high-end high-power IGBT chip as its core product, integrating the research and development, production and sales of IGBT chips and modules.

It mainly produces the eighth generation high-end high-power IGBT chips, which are widely used in green household appliances, industrial equipment, solar power generation, new energy vehicles, charging piles and many other fields. The product breaks through the technical bottleneck of key components, fills in the domestic gap and reaches the world leading level.

According to bu Jiankang, Xu Zhong holds 50% of the shares in the form of capital and serves as the general manager. He holds 35% of the shares in the way of technology and serves as the chairman of the board. The project progressed well in 2015-2017. The R & D was initially successful in May 2017. Through the National Semiconductor quality supervision and inspection center and Guangzhou vehicle gauge level power module customer test, the sample performance has reached the international advanced level.

However, to continue research and development and industrialization needs funds. After angyangs chip project was launched in a hurry, the capital chain was soon broken. According to bu Jiankang, Xuzhong violated the original agreement and spent most of the money on land purchase and office building construction, instead of spending money on chip production equipment and clean room construction.

According to the companys financial statements provided by Xu Zhong, the actual investment of the investing shareholders was 32.5 million yuan, and the civil engineering and construction costs to be paid exceeded 33 million yuan. Equivalent to all his investment, he just bought land and built a building. Obviously, it is through the virtual cooperative company to illegally occupy the state-owned land use right and obtain the government supporting funds. Bu Jiankang said.

Bujiankang said Xuguo forges his R & D expenditures before returning home, defrauding 2 million yuan of project subsidy funds; forging key projects application of 1 billion yuan, defrauding 120 mu of land targets; forging bank fund certificate of RMB 57.43 million, falsely claiming that he has the power to build clean room for chip production and purchase chip production equipment, and defraud 30 mu of land supported by the government for half price preferential support. However, after it got the land, it failed to fulfill the factory construction promise completely, which led to the failure of the plan to cooperate with international advanced semiconductor company to build the factory.

Bu Jiankang believes that he was cheated by Xu Guozhong. He is only a formal chairman of the board without any power. Xu is the legal representative and general manager of the company, and his son actually serves as the general manager. I am the tool he used to cheat the governments support policies. I only have the right to research and development in the company, and cant make decisions on project research and development, introduction of more high-tech talents and remuneration. It is impossible to guarantee the normal operation of the project R & D work, let alone determine any important things. Bu Jiankang said.

Partner litigation dispute: failure to complete chip development as agreed

In 2017, the conflict between Bu Jiankang and Xu Zhong gradually broke out. Bu Jiankang went to the court to sue angyang company and Xuzhong, asking the court to order the dissolution of angyang company.

The reason is: bujiankang not only failed to fulfill the obligation of completing the eighth generation high-end high-power IGBT technology to open the civil market in six months as agreed in the business plan, but also failed to complete it after more than two years. In the past two years, although it has carried out limited research and development work and obtained individual patents, it is still far away from achieving the contractual goal of providing the eighth generation high-end high-power IGBT technology and developing products, forming orders and obtaining cooperative profits as promised in the cooperation agreement. So far, the products it promised to develop have not passed the test and identification, let alone formed an order u3002

In this regard, bu Jiankang told Red Star news that the reason for not completing the research and development on time was that there was no R & D fund and there was no way to hire the relevant R & D team. In addition, the front-end and back-end of chip production were separated at that time, and the production line could not be completed in six months. All of them are known by Xu. Bu Jiankang said.

(2017) Ji 01 early Republic of China No. 1024 judgment shows that Xu Zhongguo won the case in the first instance. Bu Jiankang should not only give 35% of the shares to Xu Zhong, but also compensate Xu Zhong for the loss of investment of more than 12 million yuan. Bu Jiankang refused and appealed.

Civil mediation

Subsequently, after mediation by Hebei Higher Peoples court, both sides reached a settlement agreement, and the court also made (2018) jiminzhong No. 628 civil mediation statement. In the settlement agreement, both parties voluntarily terminate the contract, and the intellectual property rights during the cooperation period belong to bu Jiankang; Bu Jiankang transfers 35% of its equity to Xu Guozhong and another shareholder; Bu Jiankang also needs to pay Xu Zhong a total of 11 million yuan for the expenses involved in the case.

In addition, bujiankang sued the dissolution of the company, and the first instance was rejected. He continued to appeal and asked the court to decide to take back the land to the state without compensation; he asked to recover the subsidy of RMB 2million yuan after the Hebei Development and Reform Commission; and demanded that the illegal and disciplinary acts of defrauding land and government funds be investigated and punished according to law However, in the second instance of the case, the court dismissed the appeal.

Official reply: the companys land is legally obtained through formal transfer

Red Star News reporters found that the main contradiction between Bu Jiankang and Xuzhong is the 30 mu land occupied by angyang company. Bu Jiankang said that he is appealing to the Supreme Court to recover 30 mu of land, because according to his understanding, the land is currently valued at 160 million yuan and should not be the private property of Xuzhong.

In September 2020, bu Jiankang publicly reported on the peoples Internet, questioning the possession of state-owned land by angyang company. Subsequently, Shijiazhuang government replied that after investigation and verification by the Management Committee of the circular chemical industry park, on January 26, 2016, angyang company obtained the use right of 30 mu state-owned construction land of the plot through public transfer, and on February 16, 2016, it applied for the state-owned construction land use certificate [Shi Hua Guo Yong (2016) No. 00002]. In addition, the land use index of 120 mu issued by Shijiazhuang Municipal Bureau of land and resources was not used at that time. Later, Shijiazhuang Bureau of land and resources has recovered all the relevant materials.

On the issue of recovering 30 mu of land for the project, Shijiazhuang government replied that the land use right of angyang microelectronics project was obtained on January 26, 2016, construction started in December 2016, and the main body of R & D building was completed in November 2017. In 2017, the project was checked for suspected idleness and submitted to the superior for approval. It was determined that the land was not idle and did not meet the conditions for recovery due to idle land.

On October 14, the Red Star News reporter went to the Management Committee of Shijiazhuang recycling chemical industry park, and a staff member confirmed to the reporter that the above Shijiazhuang governments reply was indeed their investigation and verification. The staff said that angyang company was a partner in the dispute, but the companys 30 mu of land was legally obtained through formal transfer, and there was no problem. Now the land is still in the name of the company.

According to the above-mentioned staff, the 30 mu land is not considered as idle land because of the start of construction. As for the next step, the park will communicate and negotiate with enterprises, hoping to make use of the land as soon as possible and bring benefits to the park.

On the afternoon of October 14, in response to bu Jiankangs report, the Red Star News reporter contacted Xu Zhong by telephone. He said that Bu Jiankangs report to him was nonsense. The judgment on the case had been written clearly, so he would not respond.

Chip industry needs to be vigilant: entrepreneurial team impetuous and local government throwing money

According to relevant data, the number of chip related enterprises in China has increased rapidly in the first half of 2020. As of July 20, there were 45300 chip related enterprises in China, of which 4600 were newly registered in the second quarter of this year, up 207% year-on-year and 130% month on month.

Zhu jingdui, deputy director of the semiconductor industry association, interviewed many Chinese semiconductor enterprises in the field of competition.

Zhu Jing believes that from the specific project point of view, following the large projects in the field of large silicon chip a few years ago, similar situations have appeared in the field of compound semiconductor. In the first half of 2020, nearly 20 places in China have signed contracts or started construction of compound semiconductor projects, with a total planned investment of more than 60 billion yuan. Moreover, 80% of these projects are located in the second, third and even fourth tier cities in China, which are generally areas with weak semiconductor industry foundation and no relevant project construction experience. The sustainability of these projects has once again aroused the concern of the industry.

In September this year, Xinhua Daily Telegraph published a review article, saying that there are similarities behind the analysis of the current unfinished projects: technology relies too much on foreign investors purchase; local governments are hot on investment; the leading Party is not the backbone and stable force that has been struggling in the industry for decades.

What the chip industry needs to be alert to are: behind the scenes, there is a fickle mentality of entrepreneurial teams. Some core teams have not yet formed, and only ppt cant wait for Roadshows; some local governments are throwing money mentality, believing that the layout of heavy money can always succeed, but it may consume manpower, material resources and financial resources; and some enterprises have a fluke mentality, thinking that even if they do not succeed, they can not, There are also large factories to take over.

The financial waste caused by the unfinished business is not to mention that competition for talents is staged among projects in many places, which leads to the dispersion of high-quality resources and the weakening of the competitiveness of some leading enterprises, which is not conducive to the long-term development of Chinas chip industry.
