Mr. Meisong Lai, Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of ZTO, commented, "ZTO's overall results for the quarter were satisfactory. The entire country faced challenges brought by COVID-19 outbreak and made tremendous effort and sacrifices. Express delivery business as a whole was able to return to normal operations ahead of many other industries, thanks to policy support and robust consumption demand. We saw our average daily volume in the first half of May reached record high and exceeded 50 million parcels.  Our core business strategy is intact, which is focused on accelerated market share gain and increasing volume lead while maintaining quality of services and achieving net profit growth."

Mr. Lai added, "Chinese domestic consumption and particularly, innovations in ecommerce is rapidly transforming the Chinese economy and augmenting the traditional distribution channels.  The time and spatial distance between consumers and the origins of goods and services are compressing. We believe competition is likely to further escalate in the near term, however, the industry growth prospects remain positive.  We must, on one hand, constantly reach up to find new equilibrium in higher capacity and utilization in order to ensure operational efficiencies and quality of earnings. On the other hand, we must seize opportunities and evolve with the economy, and regenerate relevant competitive advantages to stay ahead of the curve. At the recent celebration of our founding anniversary, we recounted our journey in the past 18 years and renewed our resolve and commitment. Our road ahead may present many challenges but even more opportunities. We have only just begun."

Ms. Huiping Yan, Chief Financial Officer of ZTO, added, "Because of the orderly recovery in operations as well as a healthy growth in ecommerce spending since March, we achieved positive results during the first quarter by expanding volume market share by 0.3 points to 18.9%, and achieving an adjusted net income of 635.1 million. During the quarter, we kept up with market level subsidies to incentivize volume growth.  At the same time, we leveraged our strong cash reserves to support many of our network partners to ease liquidity pressures and ensure pickup and delivery activities were normalized and outlets could stay ahead as competition intensified."

Ms. Yan added, "Relief and stimulus policies are positively supporting the economic recovery, and consumer demands appeared strong.  Statistics shown that ecommerce growth lead the retail spending, and express delivery industry is at the forefront acting as a catalyst.  Our parcel volume has surged to a new level and we must recalibrate capacity investment and output efficiencies while navigating through a highly competitive landscape.  Our recent corporate initiatives for building standardized operations and procedures, which emphasize more on process management and measurable outcomes, will help further harness efficiencies, improve productivities and drive results."

Revenues were RMB3,915.9 million (US$553.0 million), a decrease of 14.4% from RMB4,574.0 million in the same period of 2019. Revenue from the core express delivery business decreased by 15.5% compared to the same period of 2019, as a combined result of a 4.9% increase in parcel volume and a 19.4% decrease in unit price per parcel mainly to provide extra support to the network partners in order to maintain competitiveness and to cope with the negative impact of the COVID-19 outbreak. Revenue from freight forwarding services increased 2.1% compared to the same period of 2019, mainly due to increased cross border e-commerce demand during the COVID-19 outbreak. Revenue from sales of accessories, largely consisting of the sales of thermal paper used for digital waybills' printing, declined 15.2% due to use of lower-priced single-sheet digital waybill since second half of last year. Other revenues were mainly derived from financing services and advertising services.

Total cost of revenues was RMB3,097.2 million (US$437.4 million), a decrease of 6.6% from RMB3,314.4 million in the same period last year.

  • Line haul transportation cost was RMB1,297.4 million (US$183.2 million), a decrease of 18.6% from RMB1,594.0 million in the same period last year, accordingly, line-haul transportation cost per parcel declined 22.4% to RMB0.55. The decrease was primarily due to (i) reduced toll road fee charges based on a federal waiver policy which took effect in mid-February and lasted through early May,(ii) higher usage of self-owned vehicles with increasing number of higher-capacity trailer trucks, and(iii)decrease in domestic diesel price due to decline in global oil demand triggered by the COVID-19 outbreak.
  • Sorting hub operating cost was RMB965.8 million (US$136.4 million), an increase of 8.4% from RMB891.1 million in the same period last year. The increase was primarily due to (i) an RMB8.8 million (US$1.2 million) increase associated with labor costs, the headcount of sorting hub workers increased 12.7% year over year, and (ii) an RMB58.1 million (US$8.2 million) increase in depreciation and amortization costs associated with the increased number of installed automated sorting equipment. As of March 31, 2020, 265 sets of automated sorting equipment have been placed into service, compared to 130 sets as of March 31, 2019. The sorting hub operation cost per parcel increased 3.4% to RMB0.41, as a result of declined parcel volume in the first two months of 2020 where sorting hubs were forced to temporarily close down due to the COVID-19 outbreak until gradually returned to operations in mid-to-late February.
  • Cost of accessories was RMB74.5 million (US$10.5 million), a decrease of 37.8% from RMB119.7 million in the same period last year. The decrease was mainly driven by the increased use of lower-cost single-sheet digital waybill since the second half of 2019.
  • Other costs were RMB472.0 million (US$66.7 million), an increase of RMB45.4 million (US$6.4 million) compared to the same period last year. The increase was mainly resulted from (i) an increase of RMB27.3 million (US$3.9 million) in expenses related to IT and technology development, and (ii) an increase of RMB12.8 million (US$1.8 million) in dispatching costs serving enterprise customers with associated volume increase of 12.8%.

Gross Profit was RMB818.7 million (US$115.6million), a decrease of 35.0% from RMB1,259.6 million in the same period last year. Gross margin rate decreased to 20.9% from 27.5% in the same period last year mainly driven by combined effects of 4.9% volume growth, unit cost productivity gain of 10.9% partially offsetting overall ASP decline of 18.4% due to competition and COVID-19 outbreak.

Total Operating Expenses were RMB446.6 million (US$63.1 million), compared to RMB499.7 million in the same period last year.

  • Selling, general and administrative expenses were RMB560.1 million (US$79.1 million), compared to RMB557.8 million in the same period last year.
  • Other operating income, net was RMB113.4 million (US$16.0 million) for the quarter, compared to RMB 58.1 million in the same period last year. Other operating income mainly consisted of (i) government subsidies and tax rebates of RMB75.4 million (US$10.6 million) received in the first quarter of 2020, and (ii) RMB41.7 million (US$5.9 million) of VAT super deduction recognized in the first quarter of 2020.

Income from operations was RMB372.0 million (US$52.5 million), a decrease of 51.0% from RMB759.9 million for the same period last year. Operating margin rate decreased to 9.5% from 16.6% in the same period last year, mainly driven by a 6.6 percentage points decrease in gross margin.

Interest income was RMB126.2 million (US$17.8 million), compared with RMB146.5 million in the same period in 2019.

Foreign currency exchange gain, before tax was RMB16.5million (US$2.3 million) in the first quarter of 2020.

Income tax expenses were RMB129.8 million (US$18.3 million) compared to RMB191.9 million in the same period in 2019. The decrease in the income tax expenses was mainly due to the decrease of operational profit before tax. The effective income tax rate was 25.2% while the share-based compensation expenses were non-tax-deductible and interest income from onshore US dollar deposits was taxed at a reduced 10% rate.

Net income was RMB371.0 million (US$52.4 million), a decrease of 45.6% from RMB681.6 million in the same period last year.

Basic and diluted earnings per ADS attributable to ordinary shareholders were RMB0.48 (US$0.07), compared with basic and diluted earnings per ADS of RMB0.87 in the same period last year.

Adjusted basic and diluted earnings per ADS attributable to ordinary shareholders were RMB0.82 (US$0.12), compared with RMB1.23 in the same period last year.

Adjusted net income was RMB635.1 million (US$89.7 million), compared with RMB966.4 million during the same period last year.

EBITDA was RMB909.3 million (US$128.4 million), compared with RMB1,156.2 million in the same period last year.

Adjusted EBITDA was RMB1,173.4 million (US$165.7 million), compared to RMB1,441.0 million in the same period last year.

Net cash provided by operating activities was RMB177.8 million (US$25.1 million), compared with RMB633.3 million in the same period last year. The decrease in net cash provided by operating activities resulted mainly from (i) RMB310.7 million (US$43.9 million) decrease in net profit,  and (ii) RMB209.1 million (US$29.5 million) increase in accounts receivables related to qualified network partners who were granted late payment terms for transit fees during COVID-19 outbreak.

Business Outlook

Even though there still exist uncertainties in the economic development in the world, the management maintains an optimistic outlook and is confident in delivering positive top and bottom-line growth for the entire year. The Company targets to achieve an annual parcel volume in the range of 15.9 billion to 16.4 billion for 2020, representing a 37% to 42% increase for the combined last three quarters of the year, and the adjusted net income is expected to be in the range of RMB5.39 billion to RMB5.83 billion, representing a 10% to 20% increase for the combined last three quarters of the year.  Above estimates represent management's current and preliminary view, which are subject to change.

Company Share Purchase

On November 15, 2018, the Company announced a new share repurchase program whereby ZTO was authorized to repurchase its own Class A ordinary shares in the form of ADSs with an aggregate value of up to US$500 million during an 18-month period thereafter.  On March 13, 2020, the board of directors of the Company approved the extension of the current share repurchase program to June 30, 2021.  The Company expects to fund the repurchase out of its existing cash balance. As of March 31, 2020, the Company has purchased an aggregate of 7,716,436 ADSs at an average purchase price of US$17.33, including repurchase commissions.

Exchange Rate

This announcement contains translation of certain Renminbi amounts into U.S. dollars at specified rates solely for the convenience of readers. Unless otherwise noted, all translations from Renminbi to U.S. dollars were made at the exchange rate of RMB7.0808 to US$1.00, the noon buying rate on March 31, 2020 as set forth in the H.10 statistical release of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve Systems.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company uses adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income, each a non-GAAP financial measure, in evaluating ZTO's operating results and for financial and operational decision-making purposes.

Reconciliations of the Company's non-GAAP financial measures to its U.S. GAAP financial measures are shown in tables at the end of this earnings release, which provide more details about the non-GAAP financial measures.

The Company believes that adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income help identify underlying trends in ZTO's business that could otherwise be distorted by the effect of the expenses and gains that the Company includes in income from operations and net income. The Company believes that adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income provide useful information about its operating results, enhance the overall understanding of its past performance and future prospects and allow for greater visibility with respect to key metrics used by ZTO's management in its financial and operational decision-making.

Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income should not be considered in isolation or construed as an alternative to net income or any other measure of performance or as an indicator of the Company's operating performance. Investors are encouraged to review the historical non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures. Adjusted EBITDA and adjusted net income presented here may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies. Other companies may calculate similarly titled measures differently, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures to ZTO's data. ZTO encourages investors and others to review the Company's financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.

In June 2016, the FASB issued ASU 2016-13, Financial Instruments—Credit Losses (Topic 326), which requires all entities to disclose their current estimate of all expected credit losses. The Group adopted this ASU on January 1, 2020 using the modified retrospective transition method and no material adjustment to the opening balance of retained earnings of 2020 was necessary. The adoption of this new ASU has no material impact on its consolidated financial position, results of operations or cashflow.
