Greenland Technologies Reports Third Quarter and First Nine Months 2023 Unaudited Financial Results

  • Company Drives Year-over-Year Revenue Growth and Gross Margin Expansion
  • Strengthens Balance Sheet with 90% YoY Increase in Cash and Cash Equivalents
  • Company Optimistic about Outlook, with Growth Led by Key Strategic Initiatives Including its Winning Port of Baltimore Bid, and Newly Launched HEVI Approved Service Provider Network Program

EAST WINDSOR, N.J., Nov. 20, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Greenland Technologies Holding Corporation (NASDAQ: GTEC) ("Greenland" or the "Company"), a technology developer and manufacturer of electric industrial vehicles and drivetrain systems for material handling machineries and vehicles, today announced its unaudited financial results for the third quarter and nine month period ended September 30, 2023.

Raymond Wang, Chief Executive Officer of Greenland Technologies, said, "We have made considerable progress in our business expansion over the past year and are very optimistic in our outlook based on several catalysts. In our advancement, propelled by our expertise in catering to the expanding global material handling sector through groundbreaking products, our commitment to research and development remains a driving force for growth. We are extending our innovative product offerings into underserved market segments, enabling Greenland to provide cutting-edge products to our customers and achieve higher profit margins for the business."

"At the same time, we continue to make significant progress with our HEVI brand of electric industrial heavy equipment. We continue to pioneer the industry of sustainable heavy machinery through inroads with supportive states, which are incentivizing both production and customer adoption. Our efforts are shining a light on the environmental benefits of electrification of this important industry and have fueled nearly 20 states into offering incentives specifically directed to the electrification of off-highway heavy equipment. We recently announced that HEVI won a bid from Maryland's Port of Baltimore, under which Greenland will help facilitate the Port of Baltimore's ambitious plan to electrify port equipment, including planned sales of our new GEL-5000 all-electric front loader.  This is the first step towards market penetration with many more to come as the industry becomes more comfortable and educated on the compelling advantages of our product offerings. As the first company in the U.S. to commercially offer electric off-highway heavy equipment, we will continue to develop and explore the right strategies to penetrate the market and support cleaner job sites for our local communities."

Jing Jin, Chief Financial Officer of Greenland, commented, "We achieved revenue of approximately $67.6 million for the first nine months of 2023, which represents only a single-digit decrease year over year, despite the continued adverse impact on our business of logistical and supply chain challenges. Given the challenging operating environment, we continue to focus on improving efficiencies and reducing costs wherever possible. We also continue to execute on our product mix shift towards higher value and more sophisticated products, which helped drive an expansion in gross margin to 27.7% from 22.3% for the first nine months of 2023 compared to the first nine months of 2022. Our balance sheet remains strong, with a 90% year over year increase in cash and cash equivalents after paying off an $8.81 million bank loan, and we have a $21 million accounts receivable balance to be collected over the coming quarters."

Financial Highlights

Greenland's revenue was approximately $21.84 million for the three months ended September 30, 2023, representing an increase of approximately $0.05 million, or 0.2%, as compared to that of approximately $21.79 million for the three months ended September 30, 2022. The increase in revenue YoY was primarily an increase in the Company's sales volume, driven by increasing market demand. 

Greenland's gross profit was approximately $6.27 million for the three months ended September 30, 2023, representing an increase by approximately $1.46 million, or 30.3%, as compared to that of approximately $4.81 million for the three months ended September 30, 2022.

For the three months ended September 30, 2023 and 2022, Greenland's gross margins were approximately 28.7% and 22.1%%, respectively. The increase in gross margin in the three months ended September 30, 2023 compared to same time frame in 2022 was primarily due to a shift in Greenland's product mix towards higher value and more sophisticated products, such as hydraulic transmission products.

Cost of goods sold was approximately $15.57 million for the three months ended September 30, 2023, representing a decrease by approximately $1.40 million, or 8.3%, as compared to that of approximately $16.97 million for the three months ended September 30, 2022.  Cost of goods sold decreased due to the decrease in production cost.

Total operating expenses were $3.46 million, an increase of 26.5% from $2.74 million in the third quarter of 2022. The increase was primarily due to the Company's focus on R&D investment as well as advertising, marketing, general and administrative activities related to its expansion, along with higher shipping fees.

Income from operations for the three months ended September 30, 2023, was approximately $2.81 million, representing an increase of approximately $0.74 million, as compared to that of approximately $2.07 million for Q3 2022.

Net income was approximately $0.19 million for the three months ended September 30, 2023, representing a decrease of approximately $1.91 million, as compared to that of approximately $2.10 million for the three months ended September 30, 2022. Basic and diluted net loss per ordinary share were both $0.07, compared to net income of $0.10 per basic and diluted ordinary share in the year ago period.

For the first nine months of 2023, revenue was approximately $67.56 million, as compared to $71.69 million in the year ago period. The decrease in revenue was primarily due to logistical and supply chain challenges due to the initial wave of COVID-19 cases following the lifting of China's zero COVID policies in the first quarter of calendar year 2023. 

For the first nine months of 2023, Greenland sold an aggregate of 112,414 sets of transmission products, as compared to 102,144 sets for the same period in 2022.

Net income was approximately $5.59 million for the first nine months of 2023, as compared to $7.39 million in the year ago period. Basic and diluted net income per ordinary share were both $0.22, as compared to $0.39 for the same period the year prior.

Cash equivalents refers to all highly liquid investments purchased with original maturity of three months or less. As of September 30, 2023, Greenland had approximately $21.54 million of cash and cash equivalents, representing an increase of approximately $5.25 million, or 32.21%, as compared to that of approximately $16.30 million as of December 31, 2022. The increase of cash was mainly attributable to the decrease of short-term investment, as compared to that as of December 31, 2022.

Restricted cash represents the amount held by a bank as security for bank acceptance notes and therefore is not available for use until the bank acceptance notes are fulfilled or expired, which typically takes less than twelve months. As of September 30, 2023, Greenland had approximately $2.80 million of restricted cash, representing a decrease of approximately $0.63 million, or 18.34%, as compared to that of approximately $3.43 million as of December 31, 2022. The decrease of restricted cash was due to a decrease of mortgaged assets.

As of September 30, 2023, Greenland had an approximately $21 million to be collected accounts receivables balance, reflecting slower payment at certain customers given ongoing challenging market conditions.
