Ideanomics Full Year 2020 Operating Results

Revenue for the year was $26.8 million with sequential quarter over quarter growth demonstrating the growing strength of Ideanomics’ business. EV revenue in 2020 was $19.5 million versus $2.7 million in 2019, an increase of $16.8 million or more than 600%. The 2020 revenues included our first sales of charging & battery systems, a part of the EV ecosystem that is very important to Ideanomics’ S2F2C (Sales 2 Financing 2 Charging) business model. We expect revenues from charging systems to grow as WAVE, our inductive charging business acquired in January 2021, is included in our financial results starting this quarter. Revenues for the full year 2019 were $44.6 million, however $40.7 million was generated from the Digital Asset Management Services contract that produced no revenues in 2020 and this contract is not expected to produce any revenues for the foreseeable future.

Gross Profit

Gross profit for 2020 was $2.1 million which represented a Gross Margin of 7.7%. Gross profit for 2019 was $43.1 million principally from the sale of digital asset management services which had a gross margin of almost 100%.
