The increase was mainly due to higher engine unit sales to the truck markets where unit sales to the heavy- and medium-duty truck market segments more than offset the overall unit sales decline in the bus engine segment.

The off-road markets also achieved significant unit sales growth in 2H 2020 compared with 2H 2019.

According to data reported by the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers ("CAAM"), in 2H 2020, commercial vehicle unit sales (excluding sales of gasoline-powered and electric-powered vehicles) increased by 35.4% compared to 2H 2019, as unit sales of buses declined by 4.6% while truck unit sales rose by 43.4%.

GYMCL's engine unit sales to the off-road markets increased by 51.0% compared with 2H 2019. The Company's higher off-road engine unit sales were led by a strong growth in the agriculture segment in 2H 2020 compared with 2H 2019.

Gross profit increased by 4.9% to RMB 1.7 Billion (US$ 262.3 Million) compared with RMB 1.6 Billion in 2H 2019. Gross margin was 16.1% compared with 18.1% in the 2H 2019 mainly due to changes in the sales mix and higher material costs.

Other operating income increased by 39.6% to RMB 273.3 Million (US$ 41.9 Million), compared with RMB 195.7 Million in 2H 2019. The increase was mainly due to higher government grants in 2H 2020 compared with 2H 2019.

Finance costs increased by 18.7% to RMB 88.0 Million (US$ 13.5 Million) from RMB 74.2 Million in 2H 2019. Higher finance costs mainly resulted from higher loan amounts compared with 2H 2019.

The share from financial results of the joint ventures decreased to a loss of RMB 64.5 Million (US$ 9.9 Million), compared with a profit of RMB 11.7 Million in 2H 2019.
