“We are pleased that results from our higher margin and highly scalable businesses are beginning to deliver meaningful margin uplift and improved financial results during the quarter,” commented AGTech CEO John Sun.

“Importantly, we continue to focus on innovations in product, channel, and business model across all of our divisions, working to leverage and integrate with both online and offline resources across Alibaba and Ant Financials, and those of suitable third party partners in China, India and beyond,” added Sun.
