2. The ex-factory price of scattered blacks of some enterprises has increased to 60,000 / ton (earlier +42.
We expect that this major accident may lead to a new round of environmental protection and safety improvement, which will cause most of the small and medium-sized backward production capacity to completely withdraw from the industry.
With tight supply in the future, dye prices are expected to continue to remain high, and the company as a domestic leader may fully benefit.
The middle has become an important part of the company’s profitability: the company’s intermediate business has accumulated 15 years of transformation, and its core products, m-phenylenediamine, and resorcinol, have become industry leaders.

Recently, through the shortage of m-phenylenediamine and the continued imposition of anti-dumping duties on Japanese and American products, product prices have remained high, and performance can be expected to increase.
As a domestic dye and intermediate leading enterprise, the company has built a strong moat through the advantages of scale, technology, environmental protection and safe production, as well as the integration of the industrial chain.
Due to rising product prices, we have raised our forecast for 2019-20 and added a profit forecast for 2021. It is expected that EPS for 19-21 will be 1.
00 yuan, corresponding to 19-21 years PE is 10.
