Daily Nyse News updates (19)

Cango Inc. (NYSE: CANG) (“Cango” or the “Company”), a leading automotive transaction service platform in China, today announced its unaudited financial results for the second quarter of 2022.

Second Quarter 2022 Financial and Operational Highlights

Mr. Jiayuan Lin, Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Cango, commented, “The macro conditions and COVID-19 outbreaks during the second quarter continued to impact our performance and outlook in the short-term. Total revenues came in at RMB289.2 million for the second quarter, of which revenues from our car trading transactions business accounted for over three-fourths of total revenues. Longer-term and benefitting from the nation’s policy stimulus, we foresee a steady upward trend for the automotive market with huge potential in the NEV and used car segments. Galvanized by this opportunity, our efforts are focused on expanding our tech-enabled car trading platform, where we are placing equal emphasis on new and used car trading, and monetizing through multiple channels including financing and insurance services.

“With the successful debut of our ‘Cango Haoche’ App in June, we are committed to providing safe, secure, sustained and stable end-to-end professional car transaction-related services for all participants in the automobile industry chain. We are not only solving the pain points of small- and medium-sized dealers in terms of vehicle sources and capital needs, but also helping OEMs to penetrate lower-tier markets and grow their sales. We also significantly improved car dealer activity and transaction conversion rate on our platform in the second quarter. Furthermore, we explored the used car matching business during the quarter and have made good progress. As of June 30, 2022, just two months after the launch of our used car business, the number of registered used car dealers exceeded 1,500 with increasing engagement, outpacing our expectations.

“While there remain market uncertainties stemming from supply chain issues, unexpected COVID recurrences, and a highly complex external environment, we will continue to invest strategically, tailoring our resource allocation with an eye toward the future development of the NEV and used car segments while leveraging our platform model’s advantages to strengthen our business fundamentals,” concluded Mr. Lin.

Mr. Yongyi Zhang, Chief Financial Officer (CFO) of Cango, stated, “Macro headwinds and a wave of COVID resurgence across China posed ongoing challenges to the domestic auto industry, as expected. Months of pandemic-related disruptions significantly impeded our business, resulting in a slump in total revenues for the second quarter. Amid this harsh environment, we remained focused on our long-term strategy, advancing our car trading transaction platform and continuing to implement cost control initiatives. Despite the COVID-induced decline, we remain confident in our platform model’s potential and are positioned to capturing the opportunities that emerge as the automotive market recovers. Meanwhile, we will continue to create value for participants across our platform with continuous improvements in operating efficiency and cost structure.”
