Ratings were downgraded
In September 17th, the joint credit rating Company Limited (hereinafter referred to as "joint rating") announced that it would reduce the main credit rating from AA- to A, and the rating outlook was "negative". At the same time, the credit rating of "14 noble birds" was reduced from AA- to A.
On the downgrading reasons, the joint rating said that according to the August 27, 2019 annual report released by the company in August 27, 2019, the company's operating income in 2019 1-6 was 810 million yuan, down 47.27% from the same period last year, net profit from 34 million yuan in the same period last year to -0.59 billion yuan, and net cash in operating activities changed from 555 million yuan in the same period last year to -0.20 billion yuan. The sales pressure of the brand is increasing, and the company's provision for bad debts is increasing. Meanwhile, the sales cost has increased sharply due to the implementation of the direct sales mode.
At the same time, the joint rating said that taking into account the land and housing holdings of the company are mortgaged, the difficulty in disposing of non core assets and the tight liquidity of funds, the joint rating decided to reduce the company's main credit rating from AA- to A, and the rating outlook was adjusted to "negative". At the same time, the credit rating of "14 noble birds" was reduced from AA to A.
Decline in performance
In the first half of 2019, the company realized operating income of 810 million yuan, 47.27% less than that of the same period last year, and realized a net profit of -5837.07 million for shareholders belonging to the listed company, a decrease of 269.59% over the same period last year.

The net profit of the shareholders belonging to the listed company was -6.86 billion yuan, down 536.01% from the same period last year.
In addition to the decline in performance, the joint rating released in June's 2019 tracking rating report said that the "noble bird" faces five major operational risks. First, the company's performance losses; second, the decline of the brand; third, the risk of accounts receivable recovery and the risk of inventory declines; fourth, the risk of new brand cultivation; fifth, the risk of debt default.
In 2018, the scale of financing of the precious birds was greatly reduced, and the liquidity of the funds became tense. At present, there are two bonds that are due to expire within one year: the amount of the first non-public directional bonds issued in 2016 is 500 million yuan and the amount of corporate bonds issued in 2014 is 647 million yuan, which will expire in November 10, 2019 and December 2, 2019 respectively.
The joint rating said that if the company failed to deal with non core assets in a timely manner or sought new financing channels to raise enough funds, the company would face the risk of default.
Major shareholder over 99% equity pledge
At present, the shareholding structure of the VIP bird is 76.22%, holding the company's controlling shareholder. Lin Tianfu, a natural person, owns 76.22% of the company's stake in the company through its wholly-owned holding company, and is the actual controller of the company.

The joint rating also indicated that all the shares held by the controlling shareholder of the company are all hypothecate, and the debt repayment pressure of the company's mature debts is very large, which is faced with great liquidity pressure.
