Kandi reports positive earnings. 2022-3Q net income was $1.1 million or $0.01 per share up from ($7.9 million) or ($0.10) and surpassing our ($2.4 million) or ($0.03) estimate. Positive results reflect improved results for off-road vehicles (UTVs, Golf Carts, etc.). Off-road vehicles reported revenues of $21.7 million versus $6.8 million last year and our $7.5 million estimate. Kandi began emphasizing off-road vehicles last spring. Kandi golf carts can now be found at Lowes Corporation in addition to licensed dealers. The company continues to develop new models including cross over UTV-golf cart vehicles.

Positive net income comes despite operating income losses. Operating income for the third quarter was ($2.2 million) versus ($9.0 million). The difference between operating income and net income can be explained by positive interest and other income as well as negative tax expense. The company reported $210 million in cash or approximately $2.75 per share at the end of the quarter positively contributing to interest income. The company believes it is prudent to maintain a large cash position to fund research and development as markets develop. That said, it has authorized a share repurchase program which we believe it will utilize if its share price drops below $2.50 per share.
