Financial highlights

During the six months ended 30 June 2019, with the complex and volatile amacroeconomic environment, the increased operational pressure on the real economy and intensifying competition in the industry, the Group adhered to its guiding principle of being “stable and progressive” in its work, steering its direction towards green wisdom (綠色智造), focusing on quality and efficiency and aiming at reform and innovation, thereby achieving the Group’s high-quality and sustainable development. According to the “List of Top 100 Battery Enterprises in China for 2018” (《2018年度中國電池行業百 強企業名單》) issued by the China Industrial Association of Power Sources in July 2019, Tianneng continued to rank top in the top 100 enterprises in the battery industry of China.6

During the reporting period, the Group recorded a revenue of approximately RMB20,087 million, representing an increase of 38.47%% as compared with the same period last year, and a net profit of approximately RMB554 million, representing an increase of 3.78% as compared with the same period last year.

Business and industry

High-end eco-friendly batteries

High-end eco-friendly batteries are one of the Group’s traditional major businesses, providing the Group with a solid cash flow. During the reporting period, the sales revenue of high-end eco-friendly batteries was approximately RMB12,561 million.

Electric bicycle and electric tricycle battery

With the continuous growth of China’s economy, the continuous increase of the consumption level, the increase of people’s awareness of environmental protection, and the promotion of energy conservation and emission reduction policies, the market of electric vehicles is expected to continue to grow steadily. Meanwhile, following the rapid development of the modern service sector, practitioners of emerging forms of businesses will become a new consumer group.

The national standards of “Safety Technical Specifications for Electric Bicycles” (hereinafter referred to as the “New National Standard”) promulgated by four government departments including the State Administration for Market Regulation, Standardization Administration of China, Ministry of Public Security and Ministry of Industry and Information Technology have become effective since 15 April 2019. The introduction of the New National Standard is of great significance for the steady development of the industries. The New National Standard has regulated market order, improved product safety performance, and fostered market competition for the best to remain.

Micro electric vehicles

Micro electric vehicles are four-wheel low-speed vehicles entirely driven by electricity. This kind of vehicle is of small volume, affordable, and commonly used for short-distance travelling.

Driven by diversified traffic conditions and consumption upgrade, micro electric vehicles have become a convenient, low-carbon and eco-friendly vehicle for the people. In the “Key points of standardization wzrking plan for new energy vehicles of 2018” (《2018年新能源汽車標準化工作要點》) issued by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, micro electric vehicles were included in the category of new energy vehicles for the first time, which demonstrated that the nation and government at all levels have started to place importance on the development of micro electric vehicles, and the micro electric vehicle market may enjoy further growth. Being the power source of micro electric vehicles, the motive battery is the core component part that ensures the rapid development of the micro electric vehicle industry. It has crucial influences on the quality, lifespan and cruising mileage of micro electric vehicles, as well as being the key element in determining whether a micro electric vehicle manufacturing enterprise possesses core competency. Tianneng continued to maintain its market leading position in batteries for micro vehicles.
