Yunji Announces First Quarter 2021 Unaudited Financial Results

ETC

HANGZHOU, China, May 27, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Yunji Inc. ("Yunji" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: YJ), a leading membership-based social e-commerce platform, today announced its unaudited financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2021[1].

First Quarter 2021 Highlights

  • Total revenues in the first quarter of 2021 were RMB675.4 million (US$103.1 million), compared with RMB1,649.2 million in the same period of 2020, primarily due to the Company’s focus on upgrading its strategy of carefully curating products through the implementation of its megahit product pool initiative to refine its product selections across all platform categories, which is in line with the Company’s long-term growth plan. During the refinement process, the Company made adjustments to optimize its selection of suppliers and merchants across its platform, which caused sales decreases in both its marketplace business and merchandise sales.
  • Repeat purchase rate[2] in the twelve months ended March 31, 2021 was 80.6%.

Mr. Shanglue Xiao, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Yunji, said, "During the first quarter, we continued to pave the way for our long-term and sustainable growth by upgrading our product curation strategy. More specifically, this involved launching our megahit product pool initiative to introduce more products with strong repurchase potential and customer appeal as well as refining our product selections across all of our platform categories. Our progress on the product side and prioritization of lasting growth over short-term sales improvements have already garnered positive feedback from our loyal members and service managers. Looking ahead, as we continue to position our platform as the go-to location for members to purchase high-quality and cost-effective products, our service managers will be more motivated to receive additional benefits through sharing and engagement. We remain confident that such efforts will lead to more win-win relationships between our ecosystem participants as well as the healthy growth and development of our platform over the long run."

"As we continued to upgrade and enhance our portfolio of product offerings, we also remained focused on improving our cost structures, achieving better operating efficiency, and maintaining a healthy financial profile. Going forward, we will stay disciplined in cost management while our new and improved product curation strategy will continue to fuel our long-term growth, allowing us to form more mutually beneficial partnerships with suppliers and thus generate greater shareholder value." said Mr. Chengqi Zhang, Vice President of Finance of Yunji.

First Quarter 2021 Unaudited Financial Results

Total revenues were RMB675.4 million (US$103.1 million), compared with RMB1,649.2 million in the same period of 2020. This decrease was primarily due to the Company’s decision to upgrade its strategy of carefully curating products starting from the first quarter of 2021. As part of these upgrades, the Company launched its megahit product pool initiative, which focused on introducing more products with strong repurchase potential and customer appeal, and refined product selections across all product categories on its platform. During the refinement process, the Company made adjustments to optimize its selection of suppliers and merchants across its platform, which caused sales decreases in both its marketplace business and merchandise sales.

  • Revenues from sales of merchandise, net decreased by 60.4% to RMB571.9 million (US$87.3 million) from RMB1,445.9 million in the same period of 2020.
  • Revenues from the membership program were nil, compared with RMB25.1 million in the same period of 2020. From January 2020 until the end of March 2021, the Company allowed any user to become a member and enjoy membership benefits free of charge for one year by simply registering for an account on the Yunji app. The Company continued to grant free membership benefits to such members during the first quarter of 2021. As a result, there was no membership revenue in the first quarter of 2021, while membership revenues in the first quarter of 2020 were all from the deferred revenue of prior paying members. The Company has ceased allowing users to become members free of charge since April 1, 2021.
  • Revenues from the marketplace business were RMB95.4 million (US$14.6 million), compared with RMB158.1 million in the same period of 2020.
  • Other revenues decreased by 59.6% to RMB8.1 million (US$1.2 million) from RMB20.1 million in the same period of 2020.

Total cost of revenues decreased by 61.7% to RMB439.4 million (US$67.1 million), or 65.1% of total revenues, from RMB1,148.0 million, or 69.6% of total revenues, in the same period of 2020. The decrease was mainly attributable to the decline in merchandise sales, which recognize revenues on a gross basis. Total cost of revenues was mainly comprised of those costs related to the sales of merchandise revenue in the first quarter of 2021.

Total operating expenses decreased by 47.8% to RMB272.7 million (US$41.6 million) from RMB522.9 million in the same period of 2020.

  • Fulfillment expenses decreased by 53.0% to RMB64.8 million (US$9.9 million), or 9.6% of total revenues, from RMB138.1 million, or 8.4% of total revenues, in the same period of 2020. The decrease was primarily due to: (i) reduced warehousing and logistics expenses due to lower merchandise sales, and (ii) reduced personnel costs due to staffing structure refinements.
  • Sales and marketing expenses decreased by 61.7% to RMB96.3 million (US$14.7 million), or 14.3% of total revenues, from RMB251.7 million, or 15.3% of total revenues, in the same period of 2020. The decrease was mainly due to the decreases in member management fees and business promotion expenses.
  • Technology and content expenses decreased by 35.3% to RMB37.5 million (US$5.7 million), or 5.6% of total revenues, from RMB57.9 million, or 3.5% of total revenues, in the same period of 2020. The decrease was mainly due to the reduction in personnel costs as a result of staffing structure refinements.
  • General and administrative expenses decreased by 1.5% to RMB74.1 million (US$11.3 million), or 11.0% of total revenues, from RMB75.2 million, or 4.6% of total revenues, in the same period of 2020, primarily due to a decrease in share-based compensation expenses.

Loss from operations was RMB19.8 million (US$3.0 million), compared with RMB6.1 million in the same period of 2020.

Financial income, net was RMB20.5 million (US$3.1 million), compared with financial loss, net of RMB9.8 million in the same period of 2020, primarily due to a gain of RMB15.9 million (US$2.4 million) from the fair value change of equity securities with readily determinable fair value in the first quarter of 2021, compared with a loss of RMB23.4 million from the fair value change of equity securities with readily determinable fair value in the same period of 2020.

Net loss was RMB4.0 million (US$0.6 million), compared with RMB13.2 million in the same period of 2020.

Adjusted net income (non-GAAP)[3] was RMB17.1 million (US$2.6 million), compared with RMB26.1 million in the same period of 2020.

Basic and diluted net loss per share attributable to ordinary shareholders were both nil, compared with RMB0.01 in the same period of 2020.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In evaluating the business, the Company considers and uses adjusted net income/(loss) as a supplemental measure to review and assess operating performance. The presentation of this non-GAAP financial measure is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The Company defines adjusted net income/(loss) as net income/(loss) excluding share-based compensation.

The Company presents adjusted net income/(loss) because it is used by management to evaluate operating performance and formulate business plans. Adjusted net income/(loss) enables management to assess operating performance without considering the impact of share-based compensation recorded under ASC 718, "Compensation-Stock Compensation". The Company also believes that the use of this non-GAAP measure facilitates investors’ assessment of operating performance.

This non-GAAP financial measure is not defined under U.S. GAAP and is not presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The non-GAAP financial measure has limitations as an analytical tool. One of the key limitations of using adjusted net income/(loss) is that it does not reflect all items of income and expense that affect the Company’s operations. Share-based compensation has been and may continue to be incurred in Yunji’s business and is not reflected in the presentation of adjusted net income/(loss). Further, this non-GAAP measure may differ from the non-GAAP information used by other companies, including peer companies, and therefore its comparability may be limited.

The Company compensates for these limitations by reconciling the non-GAAP financial measure to the nearest U.S. GAAP performance measure, all of which should be considered when evaluating performance. Yunji encourages investors and others to review its financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.

For more information on the non-GAAP financial measures, please see the table captioned "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures to The Most Directly Comparable Financial Measures" set forth at the end of this press release.

1.    This announcement contains translations of certain Renminbi (RMB) amounts into U.S. dollars (US$) at a specified rate solely for the convenience of the reader. Unless otherwise noted, the translation of RMB into US$ has been made at RMB6.5518 to US$1.00, the exchange rate in effect as of March 31, 2021 as set forth in the H.10 statistical release of The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System.

2.    "Repeat purchase rate" in a given period are calculated as the number of transacting members who purchased not less than twice divided by the total number of transacting members during such period. "Transacting member" in a given period refers to a member who successfully promotes Yunji’s products to generate at least one order or places at least one order on Yunji’s platform, regardless of whether any product in such order is ultimately sold or delivered or whether any product in such order is returned.

3.   Adjusted net income/(loss) is a non-GAAP financial measure, which is defined as net income/(loss) excluding share-based compensation expense. See "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures to The Most Directly Comparable Financial Measures" set forth at the end of this press release.

4.    Income tax expense for the first quarter of 2021 was RMB3.2 million (US$0.5 million), compared to RMB3.1 million in the same period of 2020. The Company’s effective tax rate was changed primarily due to changes in the profitability of its subsidiaries that have different tax rates, including non-deductible share-based compensation expenses, and increased valuation allowance as the Company will not be able to utilize tax loss carry forwards generated by certain unprofitable subsidiaries.

5.    As of March 31, 2021, the balance of long-term investment mainly represented equity securities with readily determinable fair value, which was remeasured based upon market price at each period end and recorded the unrealized changes in Financial (expense)/income, net, in the Unaudited Condensed Consolidation Statements of Comprehensive Income/(loss).
