Mr. Andy Liu, Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of 17EdTech commented, “In the second quarter of 2022, our businesses continued to maintain a healthy and sustainable development, laying a solid foundation for our future growth. During the quarter, the Company proactively promoted in-school teaching and learning software-as-a-service (“SaaS”) business as well as explored off-campus personalized self-directed learning products in compliance with applicable PRC laws and regulations. We successfully delivered a precision teaching and adaptive learning system based on intelligent homework covering the whole Minhang district in Shanghai in the second quarter of 2022. This learning system has been used regularly throughout the teaching and learning process and has been well received by teachers, schools and education authorities during the COVID-19 pandemic. This is a clear illustration of 17EdTech’s pioneering capability in this area which assists to reduce the burdens of students and schools and improved learning and teaching efficiency required by the ‘Double Deduction’ Policy.”

Mr. Michael Du, Director and Chief Financial Officer of 17EdTech commented, “We are pleased to report solid financial results in the second quarter of 2022. We continued to see progress in our in-school teaching and learning SaaS business, which contributed increasing net revenues for the second quarter of 2022. Our net loss on a GAAP basis continued to narrow in the second quarter of 2022 as compared with the same period in 2021, and we have achieved consecutive net profitability on a non-GAAP basis for the last three quarters as our operational efficiency continued to improve.”

Second Quarter 2022 Unaudited Financial Results

Net Revenues

Net revenues for the second quarter of 2022 were RMB133.5 million (US$19.9 million), representing a year-over-year decrease of 80.1% from RMB670.9 million in the second quarter of 2021, mainly due to the cessation of the Company’s online K-12 tutoring services by the end of 2021 in order to be compliant with relevant PRC regulations, which prohibit the provision of tutoring services relating to academic subjects to K-12 students. Excluding net revenue from online K-12 tutoring services, net revenues increased significantly from RMB8.9 million to RMB133.5 million during the same period. The Company’s teaching and learning SaaS offerings are contributing an increasing proportion of the Company’s net revenues for the second quarter of 2022.

Cost of Revenues

Cost of revenues for the second quarter of 2022 was RMB63.8 million (US$9.5 million), representing a year-over-year decrease of 74.3% from RMB248.0 million in the second quarter of 2021, which was largely in line with the decrease in net revenues due to the cessation of the Company’s online K-12 tutoring services under the new regulatory and business environment.

Gross Profit and Gross Margin

Gross profit for the second quarter of 2022 was RMB69.7 million (US$10.4 million), representing a year-over-year decrease of 83.5% from RMB422.9 million in the second quarter of 2021.

Gross margin for the second quarter of 2022 was 52.2%, compared with 63.0% in the second quarter of 2021.

Total operating expenses for the second quarter of 2022 were RMB103.8 million (US$15.5 million), including RMB30.1 million (US$4.5 million) of share-based compensation expenses, representing a year-over-year decrease of 85.2% from RMB702.6 million in the second quarter of 2021.

Sales and marketing expenses for the second quarter of 2022 were RMB11.7 million (US$1.7 million), including RMB3.4 million (US$0.5 million) of share-based compensation expenses, representing a year-over-year decrease of 96.2% from RMB306.7 million in the second quarter of 2021. This was mainly due to the decreases in promotional course expenses and advertising expenditures as a result of the changes in regulatory environment, as well as staff optimization in line with business adjustment.

Research and development expenses for the second quarter of 2022 were RMB35.7 million (US$5.3 million), including RMB7.2 million (US$1.1 million) of share-based compensation expenses, representing a year-over-year decrease of 84.4% from RMB229.5 million in the second quarter of 2021. The decrease was primarily attributable to staff optimization in line with business adjustment.

General and administrative expenses for the second quarter of 2022 were RMB56.4 million (US$8.4 million), including RMB19.5 million (US$2.9 million) of share-based compensation expenses, representing a year-over-year decrease of 48.5% from RMB109.5 million in the second quarter of 2021. The decrease was primarily due to staff optimization in line with business adjustment.

Impairment for property and equipment and right-of-use assets for the second quarter of 2022 were nil, compared with RMB56.9 million in the second quarter of 2021. As a result of the changes in regulatory environment in the online education industry, combined with the Company’s financial performance, the Company had performed an impairment assessment on its long-term assets and recognized impairment losses in the second quarter of 2021.

Loss from Operations

Loss from operations for the second quarter of 2022 was RMB34.1 million (US$5.1 million), compared with RMB279.8 million in the second quarter of 2021. Loss from operations as a percentage of net revenues for the second quarter of 2022 was negative 25.5%, improving from negative 41.7% in the second quarter of 2021.

Net Loss

Net loss for the second quarter of 2022 was RMB26.4 million (US$3.9 million), compared with net loss of RMB266.7 million in the second quarter of 2021. Net loss as a percentage of net revenues was negative 19.8% in the second quarter of 2022, compared with negative 39.8% in the second quarter of 2021.

Adjusted Net Income (Loss) (non-GAAP)

Adjusted net income (non-GAAP) for the second quarter of 2022 was RMB3.6 million (US$0.5 million), compared with adjusted net loss (non-GAAP) of RMB218.2 million in the second quarter of 2021. Adjusted net income (loss) (non-GAAP) as a percentage of net revenues was 2.7% in the second quarter of 2022, improving from negative 32.5% in the second quarter of 2021.

Please refer to the table captioned “Reconciliations of non-GAAP measures to the most comparable GAAP measures” at the end of this press release for a reconciliation of net loss under U.S. GAAP to adjusted net income (loss) (non-GAAP).

Business Outlook

Based on our current estimates, total net revenues for the third quarter of 2022 are expected to be between RMB120 million and RMB140 million. The estimated total net revenues for the third quarter of 2022 are derived entirely from the ongoing businesses after the Company’s business transformation and, as mentioned above, do not include revenues from the legacy online K-12 tutoring services. This estimated range represents a significant increase year-over-year when compared with the relatively small base of the net revenues generated from non-online K-12 tutoring services for the third quarter of 2021.

The above forecast reflects 17EdTech’s current and preliminary view and is therefore subject to change. Please see the section titled “Safe Harbor Statement” below for the factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statement.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

17EdTech’s management uses adjusted net income (loss) as a non-GAAP financial measure to gain an understanding of 17EdTech’s comparative operating performance and future prospects.

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

 

4


Adjusted net income (loss) is 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 such non-GAAP measure provides 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 measure provides 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 measure has limitations. It does not include all items of income and expense that affect 17EdTech’s income from operations. Specifically, the non-GAAP financial measure is 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 measure that excludes certain items under GAAP, does 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 Company’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 consolidated statements of operations, comprehensive loss, change in shareholders’ deficit and cash flows from RMB into USD as of and for the three months and the six months ended June 30, 2022 are solely for the convenience of the readers and were calculated at the rate of US$1.00=RMB6.6981 representing the noon buying rate set forth in the H.10 statistical release of the U.S. Federal Reserve Board on June 30, 2022. No representation is made that the RMB amounts could have been, or could be, converted, realized or settled into US$ at that rate on June 30, 2022, or at any other rate.
