The BYD Story

I invested in BYD about a and a half ago. Since I’ve been trying to everything I can about the company and founder Wang Chuanfu. is my investment write up of BYD:

Chuanfu has been called the Edison of our time combined the Bill Gates of China by Buffett. Charlie Munger it’s the best company in the and the most amazing company ever seen.

At the same BYD is trading for $17 billion and should around $1 billion in earnings year. It’s trading for 12 times next year’s BYD already produces the number one car in

All the upside of their electric and solar panels are priced in for

“It’s our company’s long-term to be China’s No. 1 automaker by 2015 and to be the leading car maker by 2025,” Wang Chuanfu

Wang started BYD (the letters are the of the company’s Chinese name) in in Shenzhen, China. A chemist and researcher, Wang raised $300,000 from relatives, about 2,000 square of space, and set out to manufacture rechargeable to compete with imports Sony and Sanyo. By about BYD had become one of the world’s largest of cellphone batteries.

The company on to design and manufacture mobile-phone and parts for Motorola (MOT, 500), Nokia (NOK), Ericsson, and Samsung.

Wang the automobile business in 2003 by a Chinese state-owned car company was all but defunct. He knew very about making cars but to be a quick study. In October a BYD called the F3 became the bestselling in China, topping well-known like the Volkswagen Jetta and (TM) Corolla.

This guy, Munger Fortune, is a combination of Thomas and Jack Welch — like Edison in solving problems, and something like in getting done what he to do. I have never seen like it. But Buffett and Munger and think it is a very big deal

They think BYD has a shot at the world’s largest automaker, by selling electric cars, as as a leader in the fast-growing solar industry.

One more thing him. Berkshire Hathaway tried to buy 25% of BYD, but Wang down the offer. He wanted to be in with Buffett — to his brand and open doors in the he says — but he would not let go of than 10% of BYD’s stock. was a man who didn’t want to sell his Buffett says.

That was a sign.

Wang typically until 11 p.m. or midnight, or six days a week. In China, of my generation put work first and second, says the CEO, wife takes responsibility for their two children.

As for accumulating I’m not interested in it, he claims. He doesn’t live a very lifestyle. He was paid about in 2008, and he lives in a BYD-owned complex with other

His only indulgences are a Mercedes and a and they have a practical He takes their engines to see how they work. On a trip to the he once tried to disassemble the of a Toyota owned by Fred Ni, an who was driving him around. Shortly BYD went public, Wang did extraordinary: He took approximately 15% of his in BYD and distributed the shares to about 20 executives and engineers at the company.

He owns roughly 28% of the shares, about $1 billion.

The company is frugal. Until recently, always flew coach. One me he was appalled when he learned Ford, which lost last year, had staged a at the Hotel George V during the auto show.

By contrast, the time BYD executives traveled to the auto show they a suburban house to save the of hotel rooms.

Sokol, of a slim volume on management called Pleased but Not Satisfied, up Wang during that and decided he was an unusually purposeful Sokol says, Many entrepreneurs can go from zero to a of million in revenues and a couple of people. He’s got over people.

Few can do that. When he got to the U.S. Sokol told This guy’s amazing. You to meet him.

Even visiting BYD, Sokol in electric cars. His people at have studied clean like batteries and wind for years because of the threat of change. One way or another, Sokol energy companies will to produce more energy emitting less carbon

Electric cars will be one They generate fewer gas emissions than cars burn gasoline, and they lower fuel costs, when oil is cheap. That’s electric engines are more than internal-combustion engines, and generating energy on a large (in coal or nuclear plants) is wasteful than doing it on a scale (by burning gasoline in an engine).

The numbers look like this: Assume you 12,000 miles a year, gas $2 a gallon, and electricity is priced at 12 per kilowatt, about what Americans pay. A gasoline-powered car gets 20 miles to the gallon say, a Chevy Impala or a BMW X3 will have annual costs of $1,200 and generate 6.6 tons of carbon dioxide. those cars with motors, and fuel costs to $400 a year and emissions are to about 1.5 tons.

BYD’s as a revolutionary copyist has drawn reactions, but of course business seldom pay heed to grumblings those they defeat. carmaking, for example, BYD found reverse engineering can cut the cost of a new by more than one-third.

To good cars in the shortest possible, BYD spends tens of of yuan every year and then dismantling the newest built by manufacturers around the That’s also how Wang set up the first battery production In those early years, a automated Ni-Cd battery line from Sanyo tens of millions of yuan, so decided to make one himself.

He the setup for an identical production that cost only 1 million yuan.

Auto offers a good example of strategy. The company obtained a stamping plant when it Qinchuan, eliminating the need for outsource production of new car body which can take two years and 200 million yuan. As a result, BYD making new stamps in eight for 80 million yuan, and now it’s a third stamping plant Shenzhen. Why are our cars so cheap? a mid-level staffer at BYD.

For example, the movement of and work in process between steps was performed by robotic rather than workers.

Further, the BYD dry room was such that operators sat its perimeter and worked on parts by their hands through sleeves that extended the humidity-controlled environment.

Ironically, the smaller of dry-room space at BYD’s may have been the result of BYD not access to information about the used by its Japanese competitors. noted, “Early in the design of our process, the Japanese plants off limits to us, so we had to rely on our imagination to and develop the battery technology and process from other

Probably the most is the ability to store intermittent resources, such as wind or Sokol said.
