Mr.Hu Xiaoming, Chairman and CEO of Kandi commented: “First quarter results were heavily impacted by the global virus outbreak. We prioritized the health and safety of our employees, and fully cooperated with the government by taking various preventative and quarantine measures across our company soon after the outbreak.  The primary action was closing our facilities and ceasing production.  Since the beginning of April, the situation has turned the corner; business is gradually resuming, sales are recovering, and consumer demand isrebounding.”

Commenting on important regulatory developments, Mr. Hu said, “As the inventor of the “vehicle/battery separation”batteryswapping model for pure electric vehicles, we are extremely gratified to our industry’s regulators shift from rejecting battery swapping to fully embracing it.  Most recently, on April 23 the Ministry of Finance, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the Ministry of Science and Technology, and the Development and Reform Commission of China jointly issued a paper discussing the “vehicle/battery separation”battery swapping model. Kandi is fully levered to the battery swap opportunity with the intelligent automatic swap system built by our subsidiary Jinhua Ankao.  We are continuously improving this system, and believe it can be a market leader in China.”
 
Hu continued, “Another important development was the government’s publication on June 1 of a detailed plan to construct a Hainan Free Trade Port.  There will be 60 distinct policies supporting the trade port.  We believe theport could catalyze rapid growth for our Hainan factory.”
 
Shifting to new market opportunities, Hu continued, “The COVID outbreak has seriously impacted the EV market in 2020, leading us to explore how to augment our business.  As we conducted market research, we found potential in a number of ancillary products aimed at intelligent transportation.  For example, Electric Scooters and Electric Self-Balancing Vehicles have distinct potential, with tens of millions of units sold each year around the world.  We are pursuing these opportunities by expanding production of intelligent transportation products that exploit ouradvantages in YongkangScrou's power electric motors and Jinhua Ankao’s power battery packs.  Our products aimed at this market combines our motors and battery packs into a dynamic power train system. Through extensive product trials, we are able to meet a leading standard in China, and thus will go into mass production this month. As this business is developing quickly, we will consider merging YongkangScrou and Jinhua Ankao intoa single specialized powertrain technology company, and evaluate the possibility of raising capital in China’s capital market to fund growth.”
  
Further discussing new opportunities, Hu concluded, “Recently, we have been in discussionswith Mr. Ying Jiawei, CEO of Hangzhou Chic Intelligent Technology Co., Ltd, a leading high techcompany that is well-recognized as a major exporter in intelligent balance scooter sector.We have agreed to have Kandi to start using its power trains system to produce balance scooters for Hangzhou Chic.  Hangzhou Chic has accumulated more than 500 technical patents in the balance scooter sector and is an originator of the balance scooter products. Their leading and innovative technology has broadly penetrated the market. Eachyear, about ten million scooters using their patents are produced.  We believe this can be a productive partnership, as we marry their technology expertise with our manufacturing prowess and technology advantages.”
