Ideanomics Third Quarter 2021 Operating Results

Revenue for the quarter was $27 million.  Revenue from our Mobility Unit was $11.5 million up from $8.7 million in the second quarter of 2021. This is the third consecutive quarter over quarter growth for the Mobility Unit.

Gross Profit

Gross profit for the third quarter was $4.5 million which represented a Gross Margin of 16.7%.  Gross profit for the third quarter of 2020 was $0.7 million.

Completion of Financial Restatement

Ideanomics has completed the restatement of its previously issued financial statements for the fiscal quarters ended March 31, 2021 and June 30, 2021 (the “Restated Periods”), and has filed amended Quarterly Reports on Form 10-Q/A for the Restated Periods with the SEC. As previously disclosed in Ideanomics’ Current Report on Form 8-K (the “8-K”), errors in the previously issued financial statements for the Restated Periods were related to revenue reported by Ideanomics’ affiliate Timios Holding Corp. that provides title and agency services. Ideanomics amended the 8-K on November 16, 2021 disclosing certain errors relating to purchase price allocations with respect to certain acquisitions completed by Ideanomics during 2021, and several additional immaterial revisions to the previously issued financial statements for the Restated Periods . The correction of these errors resulted in a restatement of the previously issued financial statements and financial data for the Restated Periods. The restatements had an impact on the financial statements for the Restated Periods, with changes reflected in the relevant financial statements, due to changes in accounting treatment of revenues. No changes due to the restatement had any impact on our gross profit because revenues in the title and agency business will be lower by approximately $5.1 million with an offsetting reduction in cost of goods sold. The aggregate amount of the restatement in connection with the purchase price allocations resulted in an increase in goodwill of approximately $17.4 million and a corresponding reduction in definite-lived intangibles with a net tax impact of $1.2 million.
