"And while ZAP is headquartered in Santa Rosa, its effectively a Chinese company as it owns a majority interest in Zhejiang Jonway Automobile Co., Ltd., or Jonway Automobile and its production is done in China."
" At the end of last year, ZAP announced that it and China Electric Vehicle Corporation (CEVC), an entity affiliated with Cathaya Capital, have agreed to extend the maturity date of a $19 million convertible note held by later until August 12, 2012."
" A quick look at ZAP’s financials reveals that ZAP will probably need another extension as the company has reported revenues of $3,816k (2010), $4,068k (2009) and $7,588k (2008); net losses of $19,018k (2010), $11,276k (2009) and $9,807k (2008); and had $4,817k in cash and $1,426k in short term investments to cover $50,789k in current liabilities and $78,883k in total liabilities. Of course, that’s if you believe any financials reported from what’s effectively a Chinese company listed in the US." Capital can exert their rith to convert the $19M debt into 134,265,000 common shares of ZAP.
