Shanghai (Gasgoo)- BYD Company Limited (BYD) gained 40.991 billion yuan ($6.321 billion) in the revenue for the first quarter of 2021, representing a year-on-year surge of 108.31%, according to the company's latest quarterly financial results.
For the Jan.-Mar. period, BYD saw its net profit attributable to shareholders shoot up 110.73% over a year ago to 237.356 million yuan ($36.598 million). Nonetheless, excluding the impact of non-recurring profits and losses, the company still faced a net loss of 81.651 million yuan ($12.59 million yuan).
During the reporting period, BYD's net cash flow generated by operating activities was 141.856 million yuan ($21.873 million), tumbling 97.13% from the year-ago period. The company said the decrease mainly resulted from the increase in the cash paid for purchasing commodities and receiving labors.

Notably, BYD's R&D expenses for the first three months surge 60.9% year over year to 1.217 billion yuan ($187.681 million). The increasing investment in R&D businesses might help BYD strengthen its presence in China's NEV market as the company is striving to seize opportunities from the tide of auto electrification.
BYD sold a total of 104,145 new vehicles in the first quarter of 2021, representing a 69.97% hike from a year earlier. NEV sales amounted to 54,751 units (+146.72% YoY), including 38,599 all-electric passenger vehicles (+113.14% YoY).
