BEIJING, China, May 24, 2021 — (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) —17 Education & Technology Group Inc. (NASDAQ: YQ) (“17EdTech” or the “Company”), a leading education technology company in China with an “in-school + after-school” integrated model, today announced its unaudited financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2021.

First Quarter 2021 Highlights1

 

   

Net revenues were RMB474.2 million (US$72.4 million), which exceeded the high-end of the Company’s guidance by RMB4.2 million and represented a year-over-year increase of 107.1% from RMB229.0 million in the first quarter of 2020.

 

   

Net revenues from online K-12 tutoring services were RMB463.0 million (US$70.7 million), representing a year-over-year increase of 118.0% from RMB212.4 million in the first quarter of 2020.

 

   

Gross billings of online K-12 tutoring services2 (non-GAAP) were RMB603.5 million (US$92.1 million), representing a year-over-year increase of 125.7% from RMB267.4 million in the first quarter of 2020.

 

   

Paid course enrollments3 were approximately 543 thousand, representing a year-over-year increase of 105.7% from approximately 264 thousand in the first quarter of 2020.

 

   

Gross margin was 60.4%, compared with 64.1% in the first quarter of 2020.

 

   

Net loss was RMB659.7 million (US$100.7 million), compared with net loss of RMB224.2 million in the first quarter of 2020.

 

   

Adjusted net loss4 (non-GAAP), which excluded share-based compensation expenses of RMB70.8 million (US$10.8 million), was RMB588.8 million (US$89.9 million), compared with adjusted net loss (non-GAAP) of RMB178.7 million in the first quarter of 2020. Adjusted net loss (non-GAAP) as a percentage of net revenues was negative 124.2%, compared with negative 78.0% in the first quarter of 2020.

Average MAUs5 of in-school applications for students was 18.9 million, representing a year-over-year decrease of 5.5% from 20.0 million in the first quarter of 2020. MAUs of in-school applications for students in March, which was the first month of the spring semester, was 18.6 million, representing a decrease of 8.0% from 20.2 million in September 2020, which was the first month of the 2020 fall semester, or a year-over-year decrease of 21.3% from 23.6 million in March 2020. The year-over-year decrease in MAUs of in-school applications for students in March 2021 was partially attributable to the high level of MAUs in March 2020, during which period the schools in China were temporarily closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the students were prompted to engage in more online education as they studied at home.

Mr. Andy Liu, Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of 17EdTech commented, “We had another quarter of robust top-line growth. Net revenues increased by 107.1% year over year to RMB474.2 million, which exceeded the high-end of our guidance by RMB4.2 million. The MAUs of our in-school applications for students also demonstrated strong resilience among the latest changes in regulatory environment. We are still confident that the room for growth of our in-school applications for students remain strong in the next few years.”

Mr. Michael Du, 17EdTech’s Director and Chief Financial Officer, commented “During this past winter vacation, we successfully managed our promotional course strategy and efficiency. We saw our operations achieving high growth while controlling new student acquisition expenses well. Our overall operational efficiency continued to improve as we scaled up after taking into consideration of seasonality.”

 

5 

Average MAUs for a certain period is calculated by dividing (i) the sum of monthly active users (MAUs) for each month of such period by (ii) the number of months in such period. MAU for each month is the number of users that logged in to the in-school applications in that month at least once. When calculating MAU, each account is treated as a distinct user.

First Quarter 2021 Unaudited Financial Results

Net Revenues

The following table sets forth a breakdown of total revenues by amounts and percentages for the periods indicated (in thousands, except for percentages):

 

            For the three months ended March 31,        
     2020     2021     Y/Y

Net revenues:

Net revenues for the first quarter of 2021 were RMB474.2 million (US$72.4 million), which exceeded the high-end of the Company’s guidance by RMB4.2 million and represented a year-over-year increase of 107.1% from RMB229.0 million in the first quarter of 2020. The increase was primarily driven by an increase in net revenues from online K-12 tutoring services.

Net revenues from online K-12 tutoring services for the first quarter of 2021 were RMB463.0 million (US$70.7 million), representing a year-over-year increase of 118.0% from RMB212.4 million in the first quarter of 2020, accounting for 97.6% of total net revenues in the first quarter of 2021. Net revenues from online K-12 tutoring services in the first quarter of 2021 would have been higher, but the revenue recognition schedule was delayed by a late Chinese New Year in 2021, which led to a one-week delay in the Company’s spring semester course start date and thus, one whole week less of revenues were recognized in March 2021 compared with March 2020. The Company would also like to note that such variations in course start dates are likely to happen each year. The year-over-year increase in net revenues from online K-12 tutoring services was primarily driven by an increase in paid course enrollments. Paid course enrollments for the first quarter of 2021 were approximately 543 thousand, representing a year-over-year increase of 105.7% from approximately 264 thousand in the first quarter of 2020.

Net revenues from other educational services for the first quarter of 2021 were RMB11.2 million (US$1.7 million), representing a year-over-year decrease of 32.5% from RMB16.7 million in the first quarter of 2020.

Cost of Revenues

Cost of revenues for the first quarter of 2021 was RMB187.6 million (US$28.6 million), representing a year-over-year increase of 128.3% from RMB82.2 million in the first quarter of 2020. The increase was primarily due to increases in compensation costs for instructors and tutors and teaching material costs as the Company provided services to more students, which increase was largely in line with the growth of the Company’s net revenues from online K-12 tutoring services during the same period. The increase in the compensation costs for instructors and tutors was partially because we hired more tutors to prepare for the expected increase in enrollments in the 2021 spring semester.

Gross Profit and Gross Margin

Gross profit for the first quarter of 2021 was RMB286.6 million (US$43.7 million), representing a year-over-year increase of 95.2% from RMB146.9 million in the first quarter of 2020. The increase was primarily driven by the increase in the net revenues.

Gross margin for the first quarter of 2021 was 60.4%, compared with 64.1% in the first quarter of 2020. The decrease was attributable to the increase in cost of revenues.

Total Operating Expenses

The following table sets forth a breakdown of operating expenses by amounts and percentages of net revenues for the periods indicated (in thousands, except for percentages):

 

            For the three months ended March 31,        
     2020     2021

Research and development expenses

     132,689        57.9     209,927        32,041        44.3     58.2

Total operating expenses for the first quarter of 2021 were RMB953.2 million (US$145.5 million), including RMB70.8 million (US$10.8 million) of share-based compensation expenses, representing a year-over-year increase of 154.4% from RMB374.6 million in the first quarter of 2020.

Sales and marketing expenses for the first quarter of 2021 were RMB613.5 million (US$93.6 million), including RMB5.1 million (US$0.8 million) of share-based compensation expenses, representing a year-over-year increase of 217.8% from RMB193.0 million in the first quarter of 2020. The increase was primarily due to increases in promotional course6 expenses and salaries and welfare for sales and marketing personnel, as well as branding related expenses, as the Company enhanced its sales and marketing efforts to propel the growth of the Company’s after-school tutoring services. This was consistent with the fact that the number of new enrollments converted in winter 2021 more than doubled that in winter 2020.

Research and development expenses for the first quarter of 2021 were RMB209.9 million (US$32.0 million), including RMB11.0 million (US$1.7 million) of share-based compensation expenses, representing a year-over-year increase of 58.2% from RMB132.7 million in the first quarter of 2020. The increase was primarily due to an increase in salaries and welfare for research and development personnel.

General and administrative expenses for the first quarter of 2021 were RMB129.7 million (US$19.8 million), including RMB54.8 million (US$8.4 million) of share-based compensation expenses, representing a year-over-year increase of 165.3% from RMB48.9 million in the first quarter of 2020. The increase was primarily due to an increase in salaries and welfare for general and administrative personnel including an increase in share-based compensation expenses.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

17EdTech’s management uses non-GAAP financial measures to gain an understanding of 17EdTech’s comparative operating performance and future prospects. Gross billings of online K-12 tutoring services and adjusted net loss are being used as non-GAAP measurements in evaluating the operating performance.

 

6


The Company defines gross billings of online K-12 tutoring services for a specific period as the sum of cash received from each enrollment of our online K-12 tutoring courses in such period inclusive of the applicable VAT and surcharges, net of the total amount of refunds in such period. The Company generally bills its students for the entire course fee at the time of sale of its courses and recognizes revenue proportionally as the classes are delivered over a period typically lasting four months or less. The Company also offers students a content playback service once each of the live tutoring class is delivered. In the content playback service, students have unlimited access to recorded audio-video content of the previous live tutoring classes for three years. The related revenue for playback is recognized proportionally over the playback period. The Company considers gross billings to be a valuable measure for monitoring the sales of our online courses and the business performance of its after-school tutoring services in general.

Adjusted net loss represents net loss excluding share-based compensation expenses and such adjustment has no impact on income tax.

Gross billings of online K-12 tutoring services and adjusted net loss are used by 17EdTech’s management in their financial and operating decision-making as a non-GAAP financial measure, because management believes it reflects 17EdTech’s ongoing business and operating performance in a manner that allows meaningful period-to-period comparisons. 17EdTech’s management believes that non-GAAP measures provide useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating 17EdTech’s operating performance in the same manner as management does, if they so choose. Specifically, 17EdTech believes the non-GAAP measures provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain charges that the Company believes are not indicative of its core operating results.

The non-GAAP financial measures have limitations. They do not include all items of income and expense that affect 17EdTech’s income from operations. Specifically, these non-GAAP financial measures are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, may not be comparable to non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies and, with respect to the non-GAAP financial measures that exclude certain items under GAAP, do not reflect any benefit that such items may confer to 17EdTech. Management compensates for these limitations by also considering 17EdTech’s financial results as determined in accordance with GAAP. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered superior to, in isolation from or as a substitute for results prepared in accordance with US GAAP.

Exchange Rate Information

The Group’s business is primarily conducted in China and all of the revenues are denominated in Renminbi (“RMB”). However, periodic reports made to shareholders will include current period amounts translated into U.S. dollars (“USD” or “US$”) using the exchange rate as of balance sheet date, for the convenience of the readers. Translations of balances in the consolidated balance sheets and the related
