On March 5, 2019, post-market, NIO released its earnings report for the fourth quarter of 2018 (the “Q4 2018 Earnings Report”). In the Q4 2018 Earnings Report, NIO disclosed that it would be terminating its agreement with the Shanghai government to build its own manufacturing plant in Shanghai, and would instead continue to contract with JAC Auto, a Chinese state-owned auto manufacturer, to build the Company’s cars. NIO further disclosed that deliveries of its electric vehicles fell from more than 3,000 vehicles in December 2018 to only 1,805 vehicles in January 2019, and further dropped to 811 vehicles in February 2019. NIO advised investors that the slowdown was primarily caused by anticipation of subsidy reductions for electric vehicles in China in 2019.

Following these disclosures, NIO’s American depositary receipt price fell $3.07 per share, or more than 30%, over the following two trading sessions, closing at $7.09 per share on March 7, 2019.
