Mr. Raymond Wang, Chief Executive Officer of Greenland Technologies Holding Corporation, commented, “We posted strong underlying results but we were adversely impacted by recent FX moves (USD vs CNY) and we were not immune to the supply chain and COVID-19 shutdowns that impacted the broader market. Despite the many macro challenges in 2Q 2022, our revenue for the first half of 2022 was only down 5.5%, as compared to the first half of 2021. In addition, COVID-19 shutdowns in China resulted in customer closures and the pushout of orders. As a result, we ended 2Q 2022 with a higher backlog than normal but have a high degree of confidence that the shifting of those orders will result in a stronger second half of 2022 than the first half of 2022.”

Mr. Wang added, “Overall, our underlying core business remains strong, our industry remains healthy and demand remains high. Greenland has been consistently outperforming over the last nine quarters and we remain focused on the continued execution of our long-term strategy. From an EV standpoint, we continue to hit all stated milestones. We launched our latest electric industrial vehicle in 2Q 2022, the GEL-5000 electric front loader, and we established our new Maryland facility. We plan to officially open our Maryland facility at the end of August, with our U.S. assembly space secure and live, and our longer-term capacity ramp underway.”

Mr. Jing Jin, Chief Financial Officer of Greenland, commented: “While China’s pandemic shutdowns and supply disruptions added pressure to our 2Q 2022 financial results, we were still able to drive a 330 basis point expansion in our gross margin to 23.5%. This reflects the strong fundamentals of our business and our success in developing higher-value products. Additionally, we further strengthened our balance sheet with $10 million in proceeds from registered direct and private placement offerings in July. This gives us the ability to support existing customer demand, our expanded product roadmap and revenue-generating efforts, as we build value for shareholders.”

  • Launch of Lithium Powered GEL-5000 Electric Front Loader: Greenland launched the latest electric industrial vehicle, the GEL-5000, under its new clean industrial heavy equipment brand, HEVI.
