We expect that with the further improvement in sales of major customers in the fourth quarter, the company's profitability will continue to pick up, and net profit growth is expected to be positive.

In the field of automotive electronics EVP and IBS, the company's visionary layout brings it a leading position among domestic manufacturers. Tuopu is expected to break through the technological monopoly of foreign giants and realize domestic substitution in the future.
Overall, the Company's lightweight chassis and automotive electronics business are in line with the trend of industry upgrading, which will inject momentum into the company's new round of development.
We estimate that the company's net profit in 2019/2020/2021 will reach RMB513 /714/969 million, respectively, with the corresponding EPS being RMB0.49/0.68/0.92. Although the results in 2019 are under pressure, under the acceleration of Tesla's localization, the company's results will usher in an inflection point and we are optimistic about the development prospects of the company's lightweight business and automotive electronics. So, we lift the Company's target price to RMB19, respectively 26/21 x P/E for 2019/2020/2021, a "Accumulate" rating. (Closing price as at 19 Dec)
