Mr. Hu Xiaoming, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Kandi, commented, “Due to extended delays in receiving government subsidy payments, as well as the government’s recent revisions regarding the new technical standards to the MIIT directory of recommended new energy vehicle models, or the Directory, that required re-submission of applications of new energy vehicles to be included in the Directory, the JV Company was not able to have normal production in the first quarter.By April 4 of this year, all of the JV Company’s  five Geely Global Hawk  EV models (SMA7000BEV05 (Kandi Model K12), SMA7000BEV06(Kandi Model K10D), SMA7000BEV07(Kandi Model K12A), SMA7001BEV25 (Kandi Model K17), and JL7001BEV18 (Kandi Model K11) received MIIT approval and are included in the updatedDirectory.”
 
“The significant drop in overall sales this quarter was a direct result of reduced EV product sales by the JV Company. However, now that we have begun receiving subsidy payments from the Chinese government and capital support from the supply chain finance program of the National Economic and Technological Development Zone of Rugao City, our normal production activities have resumed. We believe that we will regain our sales momentum and competitive edge in the second half of this year and consequently will achieve improved business operations.”
 
“Additionally, we have made significant progress towards the JV Company's receiving EV manufacturing license approval. Our application was accepted by the National Development and Reform Commission, or the Commission on March 20, 2017, and from April 13, 2017 to April 15, 2017, the project evaluation and assessment team of experts made an on-site visit to conduct a comprehensive inspection and evaluation of the JV Company’s research and development, trial production, and manufacturing capabilities. The JV Company received top marks from the evaluation and assessment team’s experts. Pursuant to the application process, the evaluation and assessment team submitted its appraisal report to the Commission on May 4, 2017, and we expect we willreceive feedback from the Commission in the near future. Lastly, we note that we are honored to welcome one of most influential experts in ChinaEV industry, Mr. Yi Lin, to be our independentboard member. Mr. Lin has many years of experience in manufacturing, research and development, and management in the renewable energy automotive industry. He is a valuable asset to the Companyand wbelieve that his involvement will improve the quality of our board and provide the professional guidance we need to maximize Kandis potential. The efforts we have made this year will lay a solid foundation for the growth of our business and towards gaining our leading market position,” Mr. Hu concluded.
