Looking back to the second quarter of 2019, despite the intensified downward pressure on panel prices, the Company overcame headwinds by optimizing the product mix and cost structure. As a result, the quarterly revenues increased by 5.4% from the previous quarter, and the extent of loss also became narrower comparing to the previous quarter. In addition, the EBITDA increased by 31.7% from the previous quarter, and the Company continues to generate positive cash flows from the operating business. The management team will keep investing in technology upgrade and improving its cost structure.
With the double eleven and double twelve shopping spree in China and Black Friday in Europe and America, the demand for panels will hopefully be sustained.
