Kaixin Auto Holdings Announces Initiation of Legal Proceedings
BEIJING, August 26, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Kaixin Auto Holdings (“Kaixin” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: KXIN) today announced that it had recently initiated legal proceedings against non-controlling shareholders of three of its dealerships due to disputes over operating issues. These three dealerships accounted for a majority of Kaixin’s revenues in 2019.
In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic has a material adverse impact on Kaixin’s used-car dealership business and the Company has experienced a significant loss of revenues.
To resolve these serious challenges to its operations, Kaixin has been reexamining the business model and has decided to put a halt to its used-car dealership business operations. As a result, Kaixin expects that its revenues in the second quarter in 2020 will be significantly lower than the revenues in the prior periods and it may not have meaningful revenues starting from the third quarter of 2020.
