About Third Quarter Financial and Operating Results Summary
Although the Company did not benefit from a revenue boosting event such as the 618 Shopping Festival during the third quarter, it still managed to increase its revenue by more than 70% compared to the same period last year, all while making strategic investments in assets and relationships in the quarter to position the Company for exceptional growth both in the near and long term. The third quarter results provide an indication of the revenue foundation that has been established by the Company by primarily servicing businesses all along China’s consumer goods supply-chain, from raw material suppliers, to factories, wholesale distributors and retailers. In addition to the consumer goods sector, the Company has identified four industrial sectors, (insurance, steel, oil & gas, and clean tech) that it believes to be strategically important to its growth in China. During the quarter the Company either initiated or took important steps to begin servicing those sectors, as some of the events listed in the “Q3 Operating Highlights” section above indicate. More details about how those events are expected to fuel the Company’s future growth, much the same way that events that took place in Q4 2020 and Q1 2021 combined to take the Company’s revenue to new heights in Q2 2021, are provided in Tenet’s Management’s Discussion and Analysis (MD&A) for the period ended September 30, 2021.
In summary, the Company generated revenue of $25,695,570 for the three-month period and $70,584,525 for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2021, compared to $15,116,369 for the three-month period and $26,329,268 for the nine-month period ended September 30, 2020.
Total expenses before taxes for the quarter amounted to $23,312,024, compared to $15,961,277 for the same period in 2020. Net income for the third quarter of 2021 was $1,526,286 compared to a net loss of $968,412 for the same period in 2020.
