Second Quarter 2021 Results

Net revenues were RMB161.0 million (US$24.9 million) in the second quarter of 2021, representing a year-over-year increase of 373.1% from the corresponding period in 2020. The increase was primarily due to the growth in revenues from packaged tours.

  • Revenues from packaged tours were RMB126.5 million (US$19.6 million) in the second quarter of 2021, representing a year-over-year increase of 906.9% from the corresponding period in 2020. The increase was primarily due to the growth in demand for domestic tours.
  • Other revenues were RMB34.5 million (US$5.3 million) in the second quarter of 2021, representing a year-over-year increase of 60.6% from the corresponding period in 2020. The increase was primarily due to a rise in commission fees received from other travel-related products and service fees received from insurance companies.

The decrease was primarily due to the decrease in research and product development personnel related expenses.

Non-GAAP sales and marketing expenses, which excluded share-based compensation expenses and amortization of acquired intangible assets of RMB1.1 million (US$0.2 million), were RMB43.7 million (US$6.8 million) in the second quarter of 2021, representing a year-over-year decrease of 36.9% from the corresponding period in 2020. The decrease was primarily due to the decrease in sales and marketing personnel related expenses and amortization of acquired intangible assets.

The decrease was primarily due to the decrease in general and administrative personnel related expenses.

Loss from operations was RMB26.2 million (US$4.1 million) in the second quarter of 2021, compared to a loss from operations of RMB150.3 million in the second quarter of 2020. Non-GAAP loss from operations, which excluded share-based compensation expenses and amortization of acquired intangible assets, was RMB20.5 million (US$3.2 million) in the second quarter of 2021.

[2] The section below entitled "About Non-GAAP Financial Measures" provides information about the use of Non-GAAP financial measures in this press release, and the table captioned "Reconciliations of GAAP and Non-GAAP Results" set forth at the end of this press release reconciles Non-GAAP financial information with the Company’s financial results under GAAP.

Net loss was RMB14.0 million (US$2.2 million) in the second quarter of 2021, compared to a net loss of RMB154.6 million in the second quarter of 2020. Non-GAAP net loss, which excluded share-based compensation expenses and amortization of acquired intangible assets, was RMB8.4 million (US$1.3 million) in the second quarter of 2021.

Net loss attributable to ordinary shareholders was RMB13.1 million (US$2.0 million) in the second quarter of 2021, compared to a net loss attributable to ordinary shareholders of RMB147.6 million in the second quarter of 2020. Non-GAAP net loss attributable to ordinary shareholders, which excluded share-based compensation expenses and amortization of acquired intangible assets, was RMB7.4 million (US$1.2 million) in the second quarter of 2021.

As of June 30, 2021, the Company had cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash and short-term investments of RMB1.1 billion (US$175.0 million). The COVID-19 pandemic has negatively impacted our business operations, and will continue to impact our results of operations and cash flows for subsequent periods. Based on our liquidity assessment and management actions, we believe that our available cash, cash equivalents and maturity of investments will be sufficient to meet our working capital requirements and capital expenditures in the ordinary course of business for the next twelve months.

Business Outlook

For the third quarter of 2021, the Company expects to generate RMB111.2 million to RMB123.5 million of net revenues, which represents 0% to 10% decrease year-over-year. This forecast reflects Tuniu’s current and preliminary view on the industry and its operations, which is subject to change.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the Company’s unaudited consolidated financial results presented in accordance with United States Generally Accepted Accounting Principles ("GAAP"), the Company has provided non-GAAP information related to cost of revenues, research and product development expenses, sales and marketing expenses, general and administrative expenses, other operating income, total operating expenses, loss from operations, net loss, net loss attributable to ordinary shareholders, net loss per ordinary share attributable to ordinary shareholders-basic and diluted and net loss per ADS-basic and diluted, which excludes share-based compensation expenses, amortization of acquired intangible assets and impairment of acquired intangible assets. We believe that the non-GAAP financial measures used in this press release are useful for understanding and assessing underlying business performance and operating trends, and management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing our financial performance and when planning and forecasting future periods. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the table captioned "Reconciliations of GAAP and non-GAAP Results" set forth at the end of this press release.

A limitation of using non-GAAP financial measures excluding share-based compensation expenses, amortization of acquired intangible assets and impairment of acquired intangible assets is that share-based compensation expenses, amortization of acquired intangible assets and impairment of acquired intangible assets have been – and will continue to be – significant recurring expenses in the Company’s business. You should not view non-GAAP results on a stand-alone basis or as a substitute for results under GAAP, or as being comparable to results reported or forecasted by other companies.
