Anji-CEVA principally engages in contract logistics activities, including warehousing, distribution, transportation, domestic freight, technical consulting and training. For the six months ended 30 June 2020, CEVA’s share in Anji-CEVA’s net result was a US$5.0 million loss (six months ended 30 June 2019: US$5.0 million profit). Anji-CEVA’s results were significantly impacted by the Coronavirus crisis in China, which led to the closure of most of its operations for several weeks during the first quarter, notably as a result of the shutdown of many customer facilities in the Chinese car industry.
