Ideanomics Second Quarter 2019 Operating Results

Revenue for the second quarter ended June 30, 2019 was $14.5 million as compared to $133.0 million for the same period in 2018, a decrease of approximately $118.5 million, or approximately 89%.  The decrease was mainly due to a change to our business focus from logistics management to digital business consulting services.  Our business strategy and the primary goal for entering the crude oil and electronic trading businesses was to learn about the needs of buyers and sellers in these industries that rely heavily on the shipment of goods. Our activities in the crude oil trading and electronic trading business have been successful in various aspects in 2018. For strategic reasons we have now phased out of our crude oil trading business and electronics trading business so that we can work towards enabling the application of our Fintech Ecosystem for other useful cases that we have identified. In March 2019, the Company entered into an agreement with GT Dollar, one of our minority shareholders and strategic investors, whereby the Company agreed to provide digital asset management services. The Company recognized $26.6 million in the first quarter of 2019, and the remaining revenue of $14.1 million in the second quarter of 2019 as all performance obligations associated with the development of the master plan from the agreement have been satisfied.

Cost of revenues was $0.7 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2019, as compared to $131.4 million for the quarter ended June 30, 2018, a decrease of approximately $130.7 million, or 99%. From a comparability perspective, the cost of revenue during 2018 is not necessarily indicative of the new FinTech business in 2019. The cost of revenue during 2018 was primarily associated with the logistics management business (oil trading and electronics trading), which traditionally has a very high cost of revenue and low gross margin, while the cost of revenue during the second quarter of 2019 is primarily associated with our digital asset management services as part of our new FinTech services business.  Majority of the costs associated with the development of the master plan services have already been incurred in 2018. In 2018, due to the uncertainty associated with the future economic benefits when such costs were incurred, the Company expensed those costs during 2018.

Our gross profit for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 was approximately $13.7 million, as compared to $1.5 million during the same period in 2018, representing an increase of 796%. The gross profit ratio for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 was 95%, while it was 1% during the same period in 2018. The increase was mainly due to: 1) the Company recorded service revenue from digital asset management services in 2019 and 2) the low cost of revenue associated with our digital asset management services, which resulted in higher gross profit margin of second quarter in 2019 compared to the low gross profit margin from the logistics management business in 2018. The reasons for high gross margin in the digital asset management services provided to GT Dollar are as follows:

  • we have invested in our technical development knowledge in digital asset management since early 2018;
  • with our uncapitalized assets, such as knowhow and expertise in our management team to develop the appropriate strategy to provide the digital asset management service which has delivered a lot of values to our client, GT Dollar;
  • there are no significant incremental costs, other than immaterial labor expenses associated with delivering on the master plan.

Selling, general and administrative expenses for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 was $6.5 million as compared to $8.8 million for the same period in 2018, a decrease of approximately $2.3 million or 26%. Majority of the decrease is due to a decrease in salary and employee benefits expenses, and lower sales and marketing expense for Wecast services.

Professional fees for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 was $1.2 million as compared to $0.6 million for the same period in 2018, an increase of approximately $0.6 million. The increase was related to an increase in legal, valuation, audit and tax as well as fees associated with continuing to build out our technology ecosystem and establishing strategic partnerships and M&A activity as part of this technology ecosystem.

Net earnings per share for the quarter ended June 30, 2019 was $0.05 per share, as compared to a loss per share for the same period in 2018 of $(0.12) per share. As of June 30, 2019, the company had cash of $1.1 million, total assets of $149.4 million, total liabilities of $61.2 million and total equity of $87.0 million.

Over the past year Ideanomics has been able to transform its legacy business, to be a prominent player for fintech services and asset digitization through establishing a global compliant network of financial technology, user community, and digital asset production. Our team of seasoned digital strategists and technology leaders have positioned the Company towards a path of unlocking FinTech services related revenue during 2019.  We have several signed customer revenue deals in our pipeline, and our product and tech teams are diligently building out these new digital products to continue to unlock this revenue and position the company towards a strong 2019.
