King of cheap SUV’s, Great Wall’s (HKE:2333) track record is impressive. In 2013 Great Wall’s strategic direction changed. Chairman Wei Jianjun announced the company’s ambition to take on major foreign brands. He went so far as saying that one day Great Wall would outsell Jeep.
In January 2014, almost immediately after launch, Great Wall delayed the H8’s release for three months due to eight technical issues.
Great Wall themselves admit the company’s weakness in developing high-end products and in technical management. On 6 May the H8 was delayed again, indefinitely. Since January its share price has fallen 40 per cent.
As the King of cheap SUV’s, Great Wall is an impressive business. How it tackles the challenge of moving into a prestige market, and what percentage of its business will be dedicated to the prestige market, will ultimately determine its future.

Debt costs money and requires ongoing servicing. If a business doesn’t generate enough cash flow from its operations to service the interest bill, trouble may be on the horizon. In dire situations companies have two choices: sell assets to pay down debt, or raise capital from shareholders to satisfy creditors. As a shareholder, neither of these options are desirable.

Debt can be a drag on a business and its profitability. To illustrate we compared two well-known car manufacturers. One is an established prestige European brand and the other an emerging player in the Australian market.
Over the past 10 years BMW’s share price has risen from €29.70 to €72.38, or 9.3 per cent pa. Over the same period Great Wall’s share price has risen almost 28 per cent pa, from $HK3.41 to $HK34.70
In the long run, price tends to follow value, and value is driven by business performance.
