"Our revenues and profits were down a bit from Q2 2019 as a result of a 15%-21% year-over-year decrease in average selling prices combined with flat sales volume from all of our paper products categories," said Mr. Zhenyong Liu, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of IT Tech Packaging, Inc. "Compared to the results in first quarter 2020, during which our sales and operations were impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, we made significant improvements in the second quarter and resumed full capacity tissue paper production and CMP production. In particular, our face mask business launched at the end of April and generated revenue of $0.8 million with sales of 6.3 million pieces of non-medical single-use face masks in the quarter. We have seen orders for our products begin to stabilize in recent months as the post-pandemic economy recovery continues in the industry and we expect that this trend to carry over into the remainder of 2020."
