On October 22, the state enterprise credit information publicity system showed that the legal representative of Dongxia Datong (Beijing) Management Consulting Co., Ltd., the main operator of ofo, had changed from Daiwei to Chen Zhengjiang. After the news was reported by the media, the official micro-blog announcement of the ofo trolley announced that the change of legal representative was only a normal personnel change within the ofo, the actual controller of the company was still Devi, there was no "concession" said, and the personnel change would not affect any operation and operation of the company.
Liu Jiehao, an Ai media consultancy analyst, told China Business Daily that "from what I have learned, this is indeed a normal change in personnel. The specific reason may involve the expansion and layout of the ofo's own business." Liu Jiehao believes that the overall operation of the ofo should not be greatly affected under the background of the stability of the overall shared bicycle market.
It is reported that Chen Zhengjiang joined the ofo at the end of 2014, as the top five employees, is currently one of the principal business officers in China. Hongwei, a partner of Beijing Jintai (Wuhan) Law Firm, said that the change of legal representative of the company needs the resolution of shareholders'or shareholders' general meeting. From this point of view, this is actually an important matter which has an impact on the company's operation, but we can not infer the company's operation status simply from the change of legal representative. Good or bad.
Since the second half of 2017, news of the breakdown of the ofo capital chain has been circulating frequently, and the earliest perception of the change in ofo is from upstream bicycle manufacturers.
Recently, reporters came to Wang Qingtuo Town, Wuqing District, Tianjin City, known as the "first town of bicycles", which was once a hot town for sharing bicycles, and now seems to have some resistance to sharing bicycles.
When asked about ofo, Ms. Tan, the director of a bicycle assembly plant, said, "Do it for ofo, can't press, don't pay, how do you make it?" She introduced that the factory now basically do not accept the single sharing bicycle, if it is about 300 cars, 50% deposit, after the goods are shipped to the full amount can be considered.
Dongzi (not his real name), an employee of Fuji Da Branch in Dongli District, Tianjin, said that Fuji Da assembled ofo from September to November last year. At that time, other manufacturers made shelves to Fujita paint, assemble and carry away. In addition, a worker at Saifei bicycle factory said that he worked as a painter in a paint factory in Wangqingtuo town last year. Many paint factories in that area accepted ofo orders, but many factories did not make any money because of financial problems.
Ofo has repeatedly denied rumors of a breakdown in its own capital chain, but the three recent lawsuits it involves reflect to some extent the state of ofo operations. In July this year, ofo was sued by Wuhan Guanggu Chuangke Block Management Co., Ltd. for a dispute over a rental contract, resulting in the court frozen 1.29 million yuan of Dongxia Datong's deposits in a bank in Beijing; in August, Shanghai Phoenix Bike sued ofo for payment of more than 680 million yuan; in September, Best Logistics sued ofo for 3.1 million yuan in transportation. Service charge.
Incoming block chain
The legal representative changed the incident, and the rumor was interpreted as bad operation of ofo. Ofo side told reporters that this is purely a rumor. At present, the company operates normally.
In addition, the reporter also noted that ofo has recently joined the field of block chain. On May 17, ofo announced the establishment of the Block Chain Research Institute, which applies Block Chain technology to large data, the Internet of Things, enterprises, governments, users and other multi-dimensional bodies worldwide to solve the operational pain points of sharing single-car delivery, dispatching, parking, maintenance, and other urban governance problems.
It is more optimistic than the original CEO segment Nova on the shared economy "block" chain. He believes that the block chain is a technology that can transform the financial, technological industries and achieve a truly shared economy. The concrete realization should be combined with the Internet of Things and other related technologies.
Yu Jianing, president of Fossil Coin University, told China Business News that the combination of block chains and shared economy can improve the efficiency of information circulation and resource utilization, and upgrade the shared economy from simple information sharing to value sharing. Block chain distributed bookkeeping technology can better store the distributed and damaged data of shared bicycles. Intelligent contract technology can achieve intelligent rewards and punishments for users. These technologies help to improve the operation and maintenance efficiency of shared bicycles and reduce costs. Yu Jianing believes that these are not technically difficult to achieve, but need some more accurate Internet of Things equipment to support. At present, ofo is only setting up a research institute. It may also need to do some basic upgrading support.
Previously, there was speculation that Dewey and ofo would share the old employees of the single owner or switch to the block chain industry, and the ofo responded that the rumors were not true.
