The management team is working hard to explore better growth opportunities. Despite second-quarter losses, Kandi Vehicles’ estimated value has exceeded RMB four billion, the management team will actively seek strategic investors based upon the estimated value to increase its competitive advantages. The efforts the Company has made will lay a solid foundation to achieve strong business results.”
Net Revenues and Gross Profit
|Net Revenues (US$million)||$27.3||$55.2||-50.5%|
|Gross Profit (US$million)||$3.8||$8.5||-55.6%|
Net revenues for the second quarter of 2017 decreased by 50.5% compared to the same period last year. The decrease in net revenues was mainly due to a decrease in EV parts sales during this quarter. Selling prices of our products for the three months ended June 30, 2017, decreased on average from the same period last year. The decrease in revenues was primarily due to this decrease in sales volume.
Operating Income (Loss)

|Operating Loss (US$million)||($3.3)||($2.4)||-39.7%|

Total operating expenses in the second quarter of 2017 were $7.1 million, compared with $10.8 million in the same quarter of 2016. The decrease in total operating expenses was due to decreased SG&A expenses, which were $2.0 million in this quarter compared with $10.4 million in the same quarter last year.

Net loss was $11.6 million in the second quarter, compared with net income of $2.8 million in the same quarter of 2016. The negative change was primarily attributable to JV Company losses and significantly increased research and development expenses of approximately $5.1 million.
Non-GAAP net loss was $9.5 million in the second quarter of 2017, a 190.6% decrease compared to Non-GAAP net income of $10.5 million in the same quarter of 2016.

Kandi Electric Vehicles Group Co., Ltd. (the “JV Company”) Financial Results
In the second quarter of 2017, the JV Company sold 365 units of EV products.
The condensed financial income statements of the JV Company in the first quarter are as set forth below:

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 $7.3 million for this quarter.
