On February 8, Zhongli Group announced that in order to expand the development scope, the group plans to invest another RMB 300 million to Shenzhen BAK Power Battery. After the investment, the group will hold 2.93 percent stakes of the Shenzhen-based company.

Zhongli Group released its 2017 financial results on Monday. Last year, its revenue surges 67 percent to RMB 18.85 billion while its net profit skyrocketed 313 percent to RMB 307 million. The earnings per share were RMB 0.48.
