Great Wall Motor net profits more than triple in H1
Beijing (Gasgoo)- Great Wall Motor (GWM) on Tuesday reported preliminary financial data for the first half of this year. For the reporting period, the company’s revenues jumped 73% from a year ago to 62.16 billion yuan（about 9.6 billion dollars）and net profits more than tripled to 3.5 billion yuan (about 540 million dollars). Basic earnings per share increased from 0.12 yuan to 0.38 yuan.
The results were driven by the increase in sales volume and gross profit of automobiles. In the first six months, the top SUV and pickup manufacturer sold a total of 618,211 vehicles, soaring 56.5% compared with the same period of last year. Haval, GWM pickup and ORA all achieved at least double-digit growth while Tank’s cumulative sales reached 33,073 vehicles since it became an independent brand in April this year.
After the official independence of Tank brand, GWM became an automotive group which owns five vehicle brands (HAVAL, GWM Pickup, WEY, ORA, and Tank), and five major parts companies (FTXT, HYCET, Exquisite Auto, NOBO AUTO and MIND).
During the reporting period, GWM actively promoted the development and application of new energy and intelligent technologies. 90% models from the company have realized L2 driving assistance functions while all newly launched models feature vehicle connectivity.
And the automaker continued to step up the efforts for international market expansion. In overseas markets, the automaker’s first-half sales soared to 61,672 vehicles and accounted for 10% of its total sales.
