Third Quarter of 2022 Financial Results
Net revenues were $57.7 million, an increase of 504% from $9.6 million for the same period of 2021. This was driven mostly by strong sales of high-power lithium batteries as well as from sales of materials for use in manufacturing lithium battery, a new operating segment as a result of the acquisition of Zhejiang Hitrans Lithium Battery Technology Co., Ltd ("Hitrans") in November 2021. The table below breaks down our net revenues by segment, and further breaks down the battery segment by end application and the materials segment by product type.
Net Revenues by End-product Applications
High power lithium batteries used in:
Light electric vehicles
Trading of raw materials used in lithium batteries
Materials for use in manufacturing of lithium battery cell
Cost of revenues was $54.3 million, an increase of 544% from $8.4 million for the same period of 2021. This was in line with the increased net revenues.
Gross profit was $3.5 million, representing an increase of 206% from $1.1 million in the same period of 2021. Gross Margin was 6%, a decrease of 6% from 12% in the same period of 2021. The decrease in gross profits was primarily due to the increase in raw material prices and the fact that our materials segment has a lower profit margin.
Total operating expenses were $4.9 million, an increase of 14.8% from $4.3 million in the same period of 2021. Most of the increase in all expense categories was the revenue growth and was largely attributable to an increase in headcount as result of the acquisition of Hitrans and additional hires in our new facility in Nanjing.
Research and development expenses were $2.4 million, an increase of 31% from $1.8 million for the same period of 2021.
Sales and marketing expenses were $0.8 million, an increase of 64% from $0.5 million for the same period of 2021.
General and administrative expenses were $1.9 million, a decrease of 14% from $2.2 million for the same period of 2021.
Recovery of doubtful accounts was $0.2 million, compared to $0.2 million for the same period of 2021.
Operating loss was $1.5 million, compared to $3.2 million for the same period of 2021, representing a decrease of 53.3%.

Change in fair value of warrants was $0.9 million, compared to $23.0 million for the same period of 2021. The change in the fair value of the warrants liability is mainly due to share price movement.
Net loss attributable to shareholders of CBAK Energy was $290, compared to net income attributable to shareholders of CBAK Energy of $20.0 million for the same period of 2021.
Basic and diluted loss per share were both nil. In comparison, basic and diluted income per share for the same period of 2021 were both $0.23.
