The chief financial officer (CFO) of Fuyao Glass Industry Group., Ltd. had to recommend dividend distributions prior to the company’s global initial public offering in Hong Kong. Fuyao was China’s largest automotive-glass manufacturer and the second-largest, most profitable, and fastest-growing automotive-glass manufacturer in the world. Controlled by its founder and largest minority shareholder, Mr. Cho Tak Wong, Fuyao was in the midst of substantial global expansion into the United States and Russia. The CFO had to project cash flows from operations, as well as substantial investment needs and the potential effects of the IPO, all while taking into consideration the effect of Fuyao’s dividends on existing and planned investors.
