In July 2018, Xingyuan Environment had 9 consecutive daily limits, plus 2 daily limits before the suspension, a total of 11 daily limits, and the company’s total market value evaporated nearly 17 billion yuan.

Affected by this, Zhou Liwu resigned as chairman of Xingyuan Environment in September 2018. Later, Xingyuan Environment planned equity transfers and related news about New Hope.
