Hu Xiaoming, Chairman and CEO of Kandi commented: “Sales are surging in the segment of e-Scooters, electric self-balancing scooters and associated parts sales. With explosive growth again this quarter, we are increasingly confident that our traction in this market can continue. Our strategic entry into this market last year represents a great success in identifying and developing intelligent transportation products to counteract the impact to EV market demand caused by the COVID-19 outbreak in 2020. We expect the EV-related business recovery to take time. Our restructuring of this business segment resulted in lower sales of EV products and parts.”

Hu continued, “Compared to the second quarter, our sales mix had a couple of notable shifts. Within EV parts, battery pack sales were impacted by supply chain constraints hitting the whole industry. Meanwhile, off-road vehicles sales grew more rapidly, indicating burgeoning customer demand for off-road and ATV recreation. We are excited about the new products we are introducing for this segment.”

Turning to the balance sheet, Hu commented, “During the quarter we received the final payment related to the sale of our 22% equity position in Fengsheng. Our liquidity has never been better. We are well-capitalized to pursue the most promising market opportunities: those that show high demand, are not oversupplied, and play to our competitive strengths. After we finish the ‘reset’ of our electric vehicle business, we can again achieve substantial growth.”

Gross Profit$2.7$3.9-29.7%
Gross Margin 16.4% 20.9%-

Net revenues of $16.8 million decreased 10.3% from the third quarter of 2020. The decrease in revenue was primarily due to lower sales of EV parts. Gross margin was 16.4%, lower than the 20.9% recorded in the same period of 2020, primarily attributable to a lower proportion of revenue generated from off-road vehicles, which offers higher gross margin.
