Shanghai (Gasgoo)- Chinese EV battery provider Contemporary Amperex Technology Limited (CATL) expected its net profit for the first three quarters to reach between RMB3.092 billion and RMB3.568 billion, jumping 30% to 50% year on year.
CATL said the performance growth resulted from increasing demands of EV batteries amid the rapid development of NEV. Another reason was that the company strived to explore more market shares and to strengthen industrial cooperation so that it performed better in production and sales.
However, its Q3 net profit of between RMB1.17b ($166m) and RMB1.47b ($208m) slid 0-20% from the year-ago period. The company analyzed Q3’s negative growth was mainly attributed to the decrease in some products’price and the increase in R&D and management expenses from July to September.
