Mr. Hu Xiaoming, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Kandi, commented, “EV sales were impacted in the third quarter due to the JV Company’s new EV models awaiting MIIT’s approval to be included in the Directory of Recommended Models for Energy Saving and New Energy Vehicle Demonstration and Promotion, as well as approval of purchase tax exemption. Additionally, a large increase in the research and development expense caused a decline in net profits in the third quarter. However, we are happy to announce that the JV Company’s new EV models obtained all required approvals from MIIT for both Directory of Recommended Models for New Energy Vehicles and the Tax Exemption on September 19, 2018, and are now available for sale on the market. With the launch of the new EV models, the Company’s operations are forecasted to improve. The management team remains confident in enhancing Kandi’s brand name and competitive edge through its consumer favored EV products.”
Net Revenues and Gross Profit
|Net Revenues (US$million)||$38.0||$28.4||34.0%|
|Gross Profit (US$million)||$6.2||$4.8||29.2%|
Net revenues for the third quarter of 2018 increased by 34.0% compared to the same period of last year. The increase in revenue was mainly due to the increase in EV parts and off-road vehicles sales during this quarter. The selling prices of our products for the three months ended September 30, 2018 decreased on average from the same period last year. The increase in revenue was primarily due to the increase of sales volume.
Operating Income (Loss)
|Operating Expenses (US$million)||$8.7||$3.1||182.1%|
|Operating (Loss) Income (US$million)||($2.4)||$1.8||-237.4%|
Total operating expenses in the third quarter of 2018 were $8.7 million, compared with $3.1 million in the same quarter of 2017. The increase in total operating expenses was due to the increased R&D expenses, which were $5.7 million in this quarter compared with $0.7 million in the same quarter last year.
GAAP Net Income (Loss)
|Net (Loss) Income (US$million)||($6.5)||$1.9||-440.0%|

|（Loss）Earnings per Weighted Average Diluted Share||($0.13)||$0.04||–|

|Change in the Fair Value of Contingent Consideration(US$million)||$1.6||–||–|
|Non-GAAP Net (Loss) Income (US$million)||($5.0)||$2.9||-267.5%|
Net loss was $6.5 million in the third quarter of 2018, compared with net income of $1.9 million in the same quarter of 2017. The decrease of net income for this quarter was primarily attributable to the loss from the JV Company and increased R&D expenses this period as compared to the same period of last year.
Non-GAAP net loss was $5.0 million in the third quarter of 2018, compared to Non-GAAP net income of $2.9 million in the same quarter of 2017. The decrease of net income (non-GAAP) was primarily attributable to the loss from the JV Company and increased R&D expenses this period as compared to the same period of last year.
Kandi Electric Vehicles Group Co., Ltd. (the “JV Company”) Financial Results
In the third quarter of 2018, the JV Company sold 1,502 units of EV products.
The condensed financial income statements of the JV Company in the third quarter are as set forth below:
|Net Revenues (US$million)||$19.9||$86.2||-76.9%|
|Gross Income (US$million)||$3.1||$5.3||-41.5%|

Kandi’s investments in the JV Company are accounted for using the equity method of accounting because Kandi has a 50% ownership interest in the JV Company. As a result, Kandi recorded 50% of the JV Company’s losses of $2.9 million for this quarter.
