Executive Commentary

"We are very pleased with our revenue results as we continue to fulfill the emerging energy storage needs of diverse world markets. For example, in Q1 over 20 percent of our business was in the medical industry. Within this sector, our advanced energy storage solutions are increasingly displacing traditional lead acid technology. Thanks to the intense focus of our sales and marketing team we anticipate further success within this market, as well as other emerging lithium markets," said Robert L. Kanode, president and chief executive officer of Valence Technology. "On the fleet and delivery vehicle portion of our business, we are happy to report a $7.2 million June order from Electric Vehicles International (EVI). This order is for 100 EVI Walk-In vans to be placed throughout California. We are EVI’s exclusive supplier and expect to begin shipments before year end as other truck and drive train components are delivered.”
