The order termination incident of Kingfa Technology is reminiscent of the previous incident of BYD's orders for masks exported to California. According to the Securities Times, on April 20 this year, BYD signed a $1 billion purchase contract for masks with the California government of the United States, but returned a $247 million advance payment because it failed to obtain NIOSH certification. The move to refund the advance payment has caused an uproar at home and abroad, and the remarks such as "American fairy jump" and "doing business with Americans are unreliable" have been raging for a while. It is understood that the 1 billion orders of BYD and the California government have not been cancelled, and the period of NIOSH certification has been postponed to the end of May. Due to the great impact of the refund turmoil, BYD responded to this by stating that the delivery of N95 mask orders was delayed, not the order was cancelled, and the delivery of disposable medical masks was not affected. The California government also added new orders. This time, BYD’s N95 masks have not been shipped. It is not a product quality issue, but a delay in NIOSH certification. This incident did not cause any loss to BYD.


In the order termination incident of Kingfa Technology, due to the fact that the buyer's information has been kept confidential, the order deadline is approaching but the buyer has not given a valid response without reason, and the order has not yet been produced, the company has no actual loss. There is still more information waiting for further mining.

Previously, Kingfa Technology predicted that the net profit from the mask order with the US company would be more than 620 million yuan. As investors’ optimistic expectations for profit from the order fell through, the company’s stocks may face certain pressure at the opening of this week.


However, the particularly major contract termination incident of Kingfa Technology has already exploded among investors. Some netizens expressed optimism, saying that "it is better to cancel it now than to accrue billions of credit losses after not being able to collect money."


There are also investors who are worried about the stock price limit today, saying "the limit is waiting for you to sell, I am ready", and some netizens question the authenticity of the order.
