SAN FRANCISCO, CA and SHENZHEN, CHINA--(Marketwired - Feb 25, 2014) - Highpower International, Inc. (NASDAQ: HPJ), a developer, manufacturer, and marketer of nickel-metal hydride (Ni-MH) and lithium rechargeable batteries, and a battery management solution and recycling provider, today announced that the company has received its first-ever order for large format lithium batteries to be used in electric buses from Huizhou Yipeng Energy Technology Ltd. ("Huizhou Yipeng"), a system integrator serving various large bus manufactures throughout China. This order marks Highpower's first large scale entrance into the EV segment.
Highpower will deliver to Huizhou Yipeng two formats of product including16 ampere hour and 20 ampere hour NCM [Li(NiCoMn)O2] lithium polymer batteries that have passed the quality test from China National Quality Center (CNQC) and Huizhou Yipeng. These batteries will be used in some of China's well-known brands of hybrid electric buses and plug-in hybrid electric buses. It is estimated that each hybrid electric bus will be using 96 of 16-ampere-hour battery while each plug-in hybrid electric bus will use 288 of 20-ampere-hour battery. Highpower expects sales to Huizhou Yipeng will range between $4 million and $5 million during fiscal year 2014.
Mr. George Pan, Chairman and CEO of Highpower International, commented, "This order represents a significant milestone for Highpower, as we now have expanded our target market from the traditional consumer electronics market into the rapidly growing electric vehicles segment. We are also pleased to have teamed up with a great customer in the EV market. The founder of Huizhou Yipeng, who worked for the Ministry of Transportation for many years, has not only accumulated deep knowledge and understanding of the national EV policy, but is also extremely resourceful in the EV industry. Many key members of Huizhou Yipeng's technical team, most notably in its battery management system (BMS), have years of prior R&D and business development experiences with global auto companies such as General Motor, Ford, Eaton Corp and ZF. By collaborating with Huizhou Yipeng, we expect to fast track our penetration into the EV market."
Mr. Pan continued, "In 2008 and 2010, we supplied a small test quantity of rechargeable lithium polymer batteries to be used on some electric buses for the Beijing Olympic Games and the Shanghai World Expo. Building on this experience, over the past few years we have strengthened our R&D efforts in battery technology and new material, accumulated extensive technical know-how, and improved production capabilities on rechargeable lithium batteries. In conjunction with the ramping up of our new lithium battery factory in Huizhou, we believe now is the appropriate time for us to evolve, penetrate and capitalize on the electric transportation space and meet tremendous demand for advanced lithium battery products from the fast-emerging EV market. The Chinese Government is highly committed to the EV market with the "Energy Saving and New Energy Car Industry Development Plan" aiming to increase annual production of pure EV and plug-in hybrid EVs to 500,000 by 2015 and over 5 million by 2020."
"We are confident that Highpower is on the right track to diversify our rechargeable battery businesses from not only consumer electronics but also to the electrical transportation and industrial energy storage markets, ultimately becoming a global leader in every aspect of rechargeable battery applications, including recycling, processing and reusing," concluded Mr. Pan.
Chinese Company Risks?
"I frequently get questioned about the risk of investing in a Chinese company. I usually point out the fact that HPJ is only listed on the NASDAQ exchange and as such is under the same regulatory, accounting, and auditing requirements as is any other NASDAQ listed stock. You can find a list of all of HPJ's SEC filings here."
