Mr. Donald Yu, Tuniu's co-founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, "We are pleased to report a strong quarter of performance for the second quarter of 2017. Net revenues increased by 54% year-over-year while gross profit increased by over 84% year-over-year. Tuniu already holds the largest share of the market, yet we are able to continue strengthening our leading position relative to our peers. In 2014, we launched our direct procurement initiative and accumulated years of experience in inventory management and procurement. This expertise will be valuable going forward as we place a greater emphasis on our direct procurement strategy."

Mr. Alex Yan, Tuniu's co-founder, President and Chief Operating Officer, said, "During the quarter, both air ticketing and hotel booking grew organically beyond expectations. Our relationships with suppliers have strengthened and deepened. With the establishment of these relationships, we have been able to synergize these products with our core leisure travel packages, in particular our self-guided tours."

Mr. Conor Yang, Tuniu's Chief Financial Officer, said, "During the quarter, we were able to continue narrowing our losses. Our operating expenses decreased both on an absolute basis and as a percentage of revenue. As we realize the benefits of economies of scale in areas such as branding and technology, we will work on further improvements to our profitability."

Net revenues were RMB460.1 million (US$67.9 million) in the second quarter of 2017, representing a year-over-year increase of 53.8%, compared with Non-GAAP net revenues, from the corresponding period in 2016.

  • Revenues from packaged tours, substantially all of which are recognized on a net basis, were RMB339.3 million (US$50.1 million) in the second quarter of 2017, representing a year-over-year increase of 57.7%, compared with Non-GAAP revenues from packaged tours, from the corresponding period in 2016. The increase was primarily due to the growth of organized tours and self-guided tours.

The increase was due to a rise in revenue generated from financial services and commission fees received from other travel-related products, such as transportation ticketing and accommodation reservation.

Cost of revenues was RMB219.5 million (US$32.4 million) in the second quarter of 2017, representing a year-over-year increase of 30.1%, compared with Non-GAAP cost of revenues, from the corresponding period in 2016. As a percentage of net revenues, cost of revenues was 47.7% in the second quarter of 2017, compared to 56.4% as a percentage of Non-GAAP net revenues in the corresponding period in 2016.

Gross profit was RMB240.6 million (US$35.5 million) in the second quarter of 2017, representing a year-over-year increase of 84.5%, compared with Non-GAAP gross profit, from the corresponding period in 2016. The increase in gross profit and gross margin was primarily due to improved economies of scale, increased operational efficiency and optimized supply chain management.

Operating expenses were RMB529.2 million (US$78.1 million) in the second quarter of 2017, representing a year-over-year decrease of 41.1% from the corresponding period in 2016. Share-based compensation expenses and amortization of acquired intangible assets, which were allocated to operating expenses, were RMB57.9 million (US$8.5 million) in the second quarter of 2017. Non-GAAP operating expenses, which excluded share-based compensation expenses and amortization of acquired intangible assets, were RMB471.2 million (US$69.5 million) in the second quarter of 2017, representing a year-over-year decrease of 44.1%.

The decrease was primarily due to the increase in efficiency resulting from economies of scale and implementation of new systems.
  • Sales and marketing expenses were RMB221.9 million (US$32.7 million) in the second quarter of 2017, representing a year-over-year decrease of 64.3%.

Sales and marketing expenses as a percentage of net revenues were 48.2% in the second quarter of 2017, decreasing from 207.6% as a percentage of Non-GAAP net revenues in the corresponding period in 2016. The decrease was primarily due to the decline in brand promotion spending and preference for marketing channels with higher ROI.
  • General and administrative expenses were RMB166.1 million (US$24.5 million) in the second quarter of 2017, representing a year-over-year increase of 17.4%. Non-GAAP general and administrative expenses, which excluded share-based compensation expenses and amortization of acquired intangible assets of RMB21.2 million (US$3.1 million), were RMB144.9 million (US$21.4 million) for the second quarter of 2017, representing a year-over-year increase of 21.4% from the corresponding period in 2016. The increase was primarily due to an increase in expenses associated with the Company's business and product category expansion. General and administrative expenses as a percentage of net revenues were 36.1% in the second quarter of 2017, decreasing from 47.3% as a percentage of Non-GAAP net revenues in the corresponding period in 2016. The decrease was primarily due to the increase in efficiency resulting from economies of scale and optimization of administrative personnel.

Loss from operations was RMB288.6 million (US$42.6 million) in the second quarter of 2017, compared to a loss from operations of RMB769.9 million in the second quarter of 2016.

As of June 30, 2017, the Company had cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash and short-term investments of RMB4.5 billion (US$666.1 million).

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 net revenue, cost of revenues, research and product development expenses, sales and marketing expenses, general and administrative expenses, operating expenses, loss from operations, net loss, net loss attributable to noncontrolling interests, net loss attributable to ordinary shareholders, net loss per ordinary share attributable to ordinary shareholders-basic and diluted and net loss per ADS, which excludes adjustment on net basis and timing of revenue recognition as in 2017, share-based compensation expenses and amortization of acquired intangible assets.

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.
