"While we were impacted through the Covid-19 lockdown in China during Q1, we were able to push forward with developing our pipeline and even processed some deliveries to show our systems and procedures are ready to fulfill orders at scale. To have achieved any deliveries in China during the first quarter is a testament to the determination and tenacity of our teams on the ground," said Alf Poor, CEO of Ideanomics. "We look forward to Q2 and beyond, including an AGM in the summer of this year to showcase both the MEG business and the formal ribbon-cutting on our new 1MM square feet EV center in Qingdao." 

Ideanomics First Quarter 2020 Operating Results 

Revenue for the three months ended March 31, 2020 was $0.4 million as compared to $26.9 million for the same period in 2019, a decrease of $26.6 million, or 99%. The revenue in the first quarter of 2019 included $26.8M from the provision of Digital Asset Management Services, there was no revenue from this source in the current quarter.  In the current quarter we recorded US$55,000 from the sale of EV taxis, achieving these sales during a period when almost all economic activity in China was at a standstill is a testament to the dedication and innovation of our China based sales and operations team.  The US$55,000 of EV revenue was recorded on a Net basis as under the US GAAP rules relating to revenue recognition it was determined that Ideanomics acted in an agent capacity for these sales rather than as principal.  For information purposes only, if we had acted in a Principal capacity the Revenues would have been approximately US$300,000, with a related Cost of Revenue of approximately US$245,000 with a Gross Profit on the EV transactions of US$55,000   

Performance on a sequential basis, revenues saw improvement in the first quarter of $0.4 million versus $63,000 in the fourth quarter ending December 31, 2019.  

In March 2019, the Company entered into an agreement with GTD whereby the Company provided digital asset management services. The revenue was recognized based on the progress of completion of services. The Company recognized $26.6 million for the period ended March 31, 2019 and the remaining $14.1 million was recognized in the remainder of 2019. 

In the first quarter of 2020, the Company is gradually ramping up its business related to EVs and recognized $0.1 million revenue from the sales of EVs. The EV revenues for the current quarter were recorded on an Agency (Net) basis because the Company acted as an agent rather than principal in these transactions.  

Gross Profit 

Gross profit for the three months ended March 31, 2020 was $44,000, as compared to gross profit in the amount of $26.7 million during the same period in 2019. The gross profit ratio for the three months ended March 31, 2020 was 12%, while in 2019, it was 99%.  The decrease was mainly due to: 1) digital asset management service revenue recognized in 2019 has higher gross margin than the gross margin in EVs; and 2) the negative gross margin from the Delaware Board of Trade or DBOT business for the three months ended March 31, 2020 due to the business is still in development stage. 

Operating Expenses in Q1 were $9.5 million dollars versus $5.8 million in the prior year – and increase of $3.7 million which was largely driven by one-time non-operating charges as we transitioned the business.   

Operating expenses, excluding one-time charges in the fourth quarter, declined from $14.2 million to $9.5 million in the first quarter. 

Operating Loss 

The loss from operations for the quarter ending March 31, 2020 was $9.4 million compared a gain of $20.9 million in the first quarter of 2019 and a loss of $13.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2019, excluding one-time charges.
