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.

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.

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 uncompleted project, angyangs chip project has experienced a rush to start, capital chain fracture and partner disputes.

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.

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.

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 bu Jiankang, Xu Zhong forged his R & D expenditure before he returned to China and defrauded him of 2 million yuan of project subsidy fund; he forged a billion yuan application for key projects to defraud 120 mu of land; he forged 57.43 million yuan bank fund certificate, falsely claiming that he had the strength to build chip production Cleanrooms and purchase chip production equipment, so as to defraud 30 mu of land supported by the government at half price. However, after acquiring the land, it failed to fulfill its commitment to build the plant, which led to the failure of the plan to build a factory with international advanced semiconductor companies.

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.

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.

Subsequently, Xu Zhongguo filed a counterclaim against Bu Jiankang, requesting the court to terminate the cooperation agreement signed between him and bu Jiankang on April 2, 2015, requesting a judgment to return 35% of Bu Jiankangs equity of angyang company to him, and requesting that Bu Jiankang compensate him for the total loss of capital contribution of 15.2 million yuan.

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, bu Jiankang filed a lawsuit against the dissolution of the company, which was rejected in the first instance. He continued to appeal and asked the court to decide to take back the land to the state free of charge; to recover the subsidy fund of 2 million yuan after the development and Reform Commission of Hebei Province; and to investigate and deal with the illegal and disciplinary acts of defrauding land and government funds according to law However, in the second instance of the case, the court rejected 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.

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.

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.
