How does Luxshare plan to use the money?

Luxshare, an Apple products supplier, will use the money to manufacture intelligent wearable devices and upgrade its electric vehicle component production.

The company intends to spend CNY 6.2 billion of the total capital on the building or renovation of facilities and technology relevant to the production of intelligent wearable gadgets. It plans to invest almost CNY 2 billion in the development of electric vehicle parts, and the funds would also be utilised to supplement working capital to the tune of CNY 3.55 billion.

What does Luxshare do?

Luxshare, founded in 2004, creates cable assembly and connection system solutions for consumer, automotive, cloud, and enterprise applications worldwide. The company develops connector cables for the iPhone and MacBook and has recently become a fast-growing supplier for Apple Inc.

Luxhsare purchased two iPhone assembly factories from Taiwan-based Wistron in 2020.

Bottom Line

Apple has achieved a top position in the wearable market. The manufacturing plan of intelligent wearable devices will help Luxshare generate more revenues as it is already a supplier to Apple.

On the other side, investing in the development of electric vehicle parts will help Luxshare in the long run.
