Net revenues were $4.61 million for the six months ended April 30, 2021 as compared to $1.28 million in 2020, an increase of $3.33 million or 260.88%. The increase was mostly due to the pandemic has been effectively controlled in China, and the increase of revenues from the initial franchise fees.

The decrease was mostly due to the Company organized a lot of training to improve the quality of employees, and spent more time on the maintenance and development of franchisees, which resulted in a decline in the sales of NEVs. Also, Shangli Store has been adjusted as a service center which mainly provides demonstration and training for franchisees.
