The company released the “2023 Semi-Annual Report” after the market closed on August 28, 2023.
Operating income was basically the same. Increased investment led to a decline in net profit not attributable to parent. In the first half of 2023, the company achieved operating income of 1471,5064 million yuan, an increase of 0.79% over the previous year; realized net profit of 306.604 million yuan, a year-on-year decrease of 92.30%, mainly due to large non-recurring profit and loss in the same period last year; net profit of 12.5374 million yuan, a year-on-year decrease of 75.22%.
On the one hand, R&D expenses have increased due to the company's increase in R&D investment in the AIGC field this year. On the other hand, due to the company's higher investment in business development compared to last year, and the overall downstream recovery is slow, demand falls short of expectations, resulting in underutilization of some personnel and related management costs. The company's main business gross margin was 29.72%, which is basically the same as 29.57% in the same period last year.
The business structure continues to be optimized, and autonomous software accounts for more than half

The proportion of the company's independent software products business reached 51.04%. Compared with 47.11% in the same period last year, the company's strategy to strengthen its own software business is still being implemented effectively. Affected by the general economic environment, demand from downstream customer groups for ITO has been declining in the short term, so the ITO business continued the trend of the fourth quarter of 2022 and experienced a sharp decline.
