Ideanomics Third Quarter 2020 Operating Results
Revenue for the three months ended September 30, 2020, was $10.6 million, of which $10.1 million were generated by the Company's MEG business unit; this represents the largest revenues earned by MEG since the Company commenced business.
In the third quarter of 2020, the Company continued to develop its MEG business and recognized $10.6 million revenue from the sales of vehicles, which included revenue of $1.3 million from the sale of traditional combustion engine vehicles. In the third quarter of 2020 the Company acted in both a Principal and Agent capacity in relation to vehicle sales. For those contracts in which it acted in a Principal capacity revenues were recorded on a Gross basis and for those contracts where it acted in an Agent capacity the revenues were recorded on a Net basis.
Gross profit for the three months ended September 30, 2020 was $0.7 million, as compared to gross profit in the amount of $2.9 million during the same period in 2019.
The Loss from Operations was $12.0 million as compared to $9.4 million in the prior period. The increased Operating Loss is almost entirely due to the lower gross profit in the current quarter.
