Financial Results for the Three Months Ended September 30, 2019

Income from operating lease

Income from operating lease increased by $0.42 million, or 301% to $0.56 for the three months ended September 30, 2019 from $0.14 million for the three months ended September 30, 2018. The increase was mainly attributable to increased number of owned used luxurious cars, and diversified lease income generated from both owned cars and leased cars.

Operating lease expenses

The cost of operating lease was comprised of car related expenses arising from lease of cars. With diversified lease income generated from leased cars which was launched in January 2019, the Company recorded car related expenses of $0.34 million.

Depreciation expenses on operating lease assets

The depreciation expenses on operating lease assets increased by $0.05 million to $0.08 million for the three months ended September 30, 2019. The increase was mainly caused by the Company's continuous investments in used luxurious cars. As of September 30, 2019, the Company had eleven used luxurious cars, as compared with six cars as of September 30, 2018.

Selling, general, and administrative expenses

Selling, general, and administrative expenses decreased by $0.18 million, or 25%, to $0.56 million for the three months ended September 30, 2019, from $0.74 million for the three months ended September 30, 2018. Operating expenses primarily consisted of salary and employee surcharge, office rental expense, business tax and surcharge, changes in fair value of other noncurrent liabilities, professional service fees, and other office supplies. The decrease was mainly attributable to a decrease of legal and consulting expenses of $0.19 million, as the Company incurred less financing and investing transactions during the period.

Operating expenses primarily consisted of salary and employee surcharge, office rental expense, business tax and surcharge, changes in fair value of other noncurrent liabilities, professional service fees, and other office supplies. The increase was mainly attributable to the combined effects of an increase of promotion expenses of $0.14 million, an increase of car-related expenses of $0.11 million, an increase of legal and consulting expenses of $0.21 million as a result of the issuance of 502,391 restricted shares as compensation to service providers, and expenses incurred for the registered direct offerings in April and May 2019, consisting of an increase of audit related fees of $0.18 million, an increase of commission of $0.1 million to a third party vendor for referral of underwriters, and other expenses of $0.34 million.
