The group said its Mobile Energy Global division just completed a $4.4 million order for 42 electric vehicles from the Tianjin Zhongcheng Jiaye Automobile Trading Company

Ideanomics Inc (NASDAQ: IDEX) said Friday that it intends to respond with “all means possible” to the “coordinated attack” on the company's credibility in order to financially profit from a drop in the company's share price.

Ideanomics, headquartered in New York with offices in Beijing and Qingdao, responded forcefully to an analyst note from J Capital Research and Hindenburg Research.

“The company refutes entirely the claims that it has less than three months operating cash. On the contrary, the company has sufficient cash to maintain its current operations for at least 12 months,” said the company in a statement.

Ideanomics stock plunged nearly 32.8% to $1.64 in recent trading.

“Our sales center in Qingdao, along with our partners (including the City of Qingdao, a 10% owner of our subsidiary in Qingdao), has a free rental agreement backed by local government for up to 15 years and for up to 100,000 square meters,” said the company.
