The total number of engines sold by GYMCL during the second quarter of 2018 was 100,675 units compared with 90,638 units in the same quarter last year, an increase of 11.1%. The increase was mainly due to increased engine sales to the truck and off-road segments, particularly the agriculture application and was partially offset by the decrease in the bus segment. In addition, Company’s sales in the power-generation and the industrial equipment applications increased as compared with the same quarter last year.

According to data reported by the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers (“CAAM”) (excluding sales of gasoline powered and electric vehicles), in the second quarter of 2018, sales of buses decreased by 3.1% while truck sales increased by 12.1%.

Other operating income was RMB 33.7 million (US$ 5.1 million), compared with RMB 48.6 million in the second quarter of 2017. The decrease was mainly due to foreign exchange revaluation losses in the second quarter of 2018 compared to a gain in the same quarter last year, and partly offset by higher bank interest income in the second quarter of 2018.

Research and development (“R&D”) expenses increased by 38.4% to RMB 156.5 million (US$ 23.6 million) compared with RMB 113.0 million in the second quarter of 2017.

Selling, general and administrative (“SG&A”) expenses decreased by 10.4% to RMB 371.8 million (US$ 56.2 million) from RMB 414.8 million in the second quarter of 2017. The decrease primarily resulted from lower warranty and freight charges, reversal of allowance for doubtful trade receivables and indirect taxes in the second quarter of 2018. SG&A expenses represented 8.8% of revenue compared with 10.2% in the same quarter last year.

Operating profit increased by 12.2% to RMB 274.5 million (US$ 41.5 million) from RMB 244.7 million in the second quarter of 2017. The operating margin was 6.5% compared with 6.0% in the second quarter of 2017.

Finance costs increased to RMB 29.6 million (US$ 4.5 million) from RMB 16.5 million in the second quarter of 2017. Higher finance costs mainly resulted from higher borrowings and bills discounting compared with the second quarter of 2017.
