Canaan Inc. Provides Updates on Recent Development and Business Outlook
BEIJING, March 16, 2022 /PRNewswire/ Canaan Inc. (NASDAQ: CAN) (Canaan or the Company), a leading high-performance computing solutions provider, today announced that its business outlook for the first quarter of 2022 is expected to be impacted due to the delay in the delivery logistics as a result of the recent COVID-19 quarantine control in certain regions in China.
Recently, local governments in a number of cities in China had initiated quarantine control mandates due to the recent resurgence of COVID-19 cases. On March 14, 2022, the government implemented a five-day quarantine lock-down for all residents and businesses in the city where the Companys mining machine factory and warehouses are located. The quarantine period may be extended depending on the effectiveness of the containment. This lock-down measure resulted in the logistics suspension for the delivery of the Companys mining machines to clients that have made down payments or fully prepaid for computing power orders. As such, the Company expects that its revenue recognition in the first quarter of 2022 may be adversely affected due to the delay of its inventory delivery. The delivery of these orders is projected to be backlogged to the second quarter of 2022.
The Company is actively cooperating with the local government for pandemic control and has taken measures to ensure the health and safety of its employees in the influenced region. In addition, the Company is closely monitoring the evolvement of the pandemic situation and will resume logistics and product delivery as soon as the condition improves.
