Mr. Andy Zhang, chief executive officer of Bitauto, said, "Amidst a challenging auto industry environment, we were pleased to deliver a set of solid results for the first quarter of 2019, with total revenue growing by 26.0% year-over-year to RMB2.73 billion. Our advertising and subscription business continued to see steady growth, with revenue reaching RMB897.0 million, representing a 13.9% year-over year increase. Revenue from our core advertising and subscription business, which excludes contributions from subsidiaries in which we hold controlling interests, grew by 12.6% year-over-year for the first quarter of 2019. Our transaction services business continued to expand rapidly and reached RMB1.65 billion in revenue, representing a 40.7% year-over-year increase."

"During the quarter, we saw substantial increases in traffic, user time spent, and number of sales leads generated. According to Questmobile, in April 2019, daily active users (DAU) on the Bitauto media app increased by 197% since the upgrade which we rolled out in October 2018. Moreover, the combined DAU on both the Bitauto media app and Auto Pricing app rose by approximately 50% over the same period in 2018. Our total number of sales leads grew by approximately 15% year-over-year in the first quarter of 2019, with higher quality attributable to greater contribution from organic leads. As a result of the improving quantity and quality of sales leads, average revenue per user (ARPU) in our subscription business further increased as we continued to migrate members to our premium and recently launched deluxe premium service packages. We also expanded our network of independent dealers to over 26,000 during the first quarter of 2019, of which more than 2,300 were paying customers as of the end of this May."

"In our transaction services business, Yixin continued to grow faster than the industry, strengthening its market leadership, and enhancing its competitive advantages. Yixin facilitated approximately 147,000 financed automobile transactions in the first quarter of 2019, a year-over-year increase of approximately 30%. During the quarter, Yixin's financed new automobile transactions increased by approximately 23% year-over-year, while China's new passenger vehicles sales decreased by 14% year-over-year, according to China Association of Automobile Manufacturers. Yixin's financed used automobile transactions increased by approximately 39% year-over-year during the quarter, while China's used passenger vehicle sales increased by 2% year-over-year, according to China Automobile Dealers Association. Yixin's loan facilitation services contributed 66% of its total financed automobile transactions, with transaction volume up nearly 10 times compared to the same period of last year."

"Looking forward, we will remain dedicated to executing on our core business strategies to build Bitauto into China's top online automobile media and transaction services platform. First, we will continue to improve content and user experience on the upgraded Bitauto media app, which has seen robust improvement in DAU, retention rate, as well as content generation and consumption. This will greatly strengthen our ability to bring higher quality sales leads to our automaker and dealer customers, helping enhance their sales conversion rates, and demonstrating our value proposition amid the current soft market of automobile sales. Second, we will drive incremental revenue growth in our advertising business through data products, which provide automakers with integrated results-driven marketing solutions. Our data products enable automakers to analyse real-time consumer behavior, including browsing, research and purchasing, to further improve conversion rates. Third, we will further develop our subscription business this year, as we enhance ARPU from 4S dealer customers through sales of premium and deluxe premium service packages, and expand our services to cover more independent dealers while gradually increasing monetization among this vast and under-tapped market segment. Fourth, Yixin will remain focused on rapidly expanding its financed automobile transactions, growing its loan facilitation business, and developing its technology capabilities to better understand, connect, and serve consumers, financial institution partners, and automobile dealers. We believe that Yixin is well-positioned to gain market share in the automobile finance industry."

Mr. Ming Xu, chief financial officer of Bitauto, said, "Despite soft sales in the automobile industry, our results for the first quarter of 2019 maintained a steady growth trajectory, with strong performances from both our advertising and subscription business and transaction services business. We were also able to increase profitability in the first quarter, mainly attributable to improved profitability at Yixin, as well as effective control on sales and marketing expenses. With growing traffic and enhanced user experience, we believe our upgraded Bitauto media app should continue to strengthen Bitauto's value proposition, which we believe will be increasingly recognized by our OEM and dealer customers as they focus on the effectiveness of their advertising spending. We expect the growth of our user base and brand value will further solidify our leading industry position, reduce our customer acquisition costs and enhance our margins. We remain optimistic about Yixin's margin outlook for the full year as it further grows its total financed transaction volume."

Bitauto reported revenue of RMB2.73 billion (US$407.5 million) for the first quarter of 2019, representing a 26.0% increase from the corresponding period in 2018. The increase in revenue was attributable to the growth of the Company's transaction services business and advertising and subscription business.

  • Revenue from the advertising and subscription business for the first quarter of 2019 was RMB897.0 million (US$133.7 million), representing a 13.9% increase from RMB787.5 million (US$117.3 million) in the corresponding period in 2018.
  • Revenue from the transaction services business for the first quarter of 2019 was RMB1.65 billion (US$245.8 million), representing a 40.7% increase from RMB1.17 billion (US$174.7 million) in the corresponding period in 2018, mainly attributable to the revenue growth of the Company's loan facilitation services and self-operated financing business.
  • Revenue from the digital marketing solutions business for the first quarter of 2019 was RMB187.9 million (US$28.0 million), compared to RMB211.3 million (US$31.5 million) in the corresponding period in 2018.

Cost of revenue for the first quarter of 2019 was RMB1.07 billion (US$158.8 million), representing an increase of 29.8% from the corresponding period in 2018. The increase was primarily due to increased commissions associated with loan facilitation services and increased costs associated with higher sales of automobiles. Cost of revenue as a percentage of revenue in the first quarter of 2019 was 39.0%, compared to 37.8% in the corresponding period in 2018.

Gross profit for the first quarter of 2019 was RMB1.67 billion (US$248.6 million), representing a 23.6% increase from the corresponding period in 2018.

Operating margin in the first quarter of 2019 was 2.1%, compared to -14.4% in the corresponding period in 2018. The improvement in operating results and operating margin was mainly attributable to the growth of loan facilitation services which feature strong scalability and attractive margin profile.

Non-GAAP income from operations in the first quarter of 2019 was RMB365.8 million (US$54.5 million), representing a significant increase from RMB8.0 million (US$1.2 million) in the corresponding period in 2018. Non-GAAP operating margin in the first quarter of 2019 was 13.4%, compared to 0.4% in the corresponding period in 2018.

Investment income in the first quarter of 2019 was RMB122.6 million (US$18.3 million), compared to an investment income of RMB6.0 million (US$0.9 million) in the corresponding period in 2018. The increase was mainly attributable to a step acquisition gain arising from the acquisition of the Company's equity investee in the current quarter, which was a non-cash investment item.

Income tax expense in the first quarter of 2019 was RMB82.2 million (US$12.2 million), compared to an income tax benefit of RMB12.5 million (US$1.9 million) in the corresponding period in 2018. This increase was mainly attributable to increased income from operations from subsidiaries in the People's Republic of China in the first quarter of 2019.

Net income in the first quarter of 2019 was RMB92.8 million (US$13.8 million), compared to a net loss of RMB288.3 million (US$43.0 million) in the corresponding period in 2018.

Net income attributable to Bitauto in the first quarter of 2019 was RMB32.5 million (US$4.8 million), compared to a net loss attributable to Bitauto of RMB167.6 million (US$25.0 million) in the corresponding period in 2018. 

Non-GAAP net income attributable to Bitauto in the first quarter of 2019 was RMB152.1 million (US$22.7 million), a 126.3% increase from the corresponding period in 2018.

Cash provided by operating activities, cash provided by investing activities, and cash used in financing activities in the first quarter of 2019 were RMB293.7 million (US$43.8 million), RMB1.86 billion (US$276.9 million), and RMB2.11 billion (US$314.5 million), respectively.

The number of employees totaled 8,570 as of March 31, 2019, including employees of entities in which Bitauto has acquired and holds controlling interests as of such date. This represented a 4.4% year-over-year decrease, primarily due to the decreased headcount in Yixin, following its strategic de-emphasis of used automobile transaction facilitation services.

As of March 31, 2019, the Company had a total of 73,761,089 ordinary shares. Non-GAAP basic and diluted per ADS figures for the first quarter of 2019 were calculated using a weighted average of 70,658,414 and 76,993,901 ADSs, respectively. Each ADS represents one ordinary share of the Company.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures 

To supplement Bitauto's consolidated financial results presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP, Bitauto uses Non-GAAP income from operations, Non-GAAP net income, Non-GAAP net income attributable to Bitauto and Non-GAAP basic and diluted net income per ADS as Non-GAAP financial measures, and uses Yixin's Non-GAAP net income/(loss) as Non-GAAP financial measures to supplement the disclosure of financial performance of Yixin. Non-GAAP income from operations is defined as (loss)/income from operations excluding (i) share-based compensation; (ii) amortization of intangible assets resulting from asset and business acquisitions. Non-GAAP net income and Non-GAAP net income attributable to Bitauto, respectively, are defined as net (loss)/income and net (loss)/income attributable to Bitauto excluding (i) share-based compensation; (ii) amortization of intangible assets resulting from asset and business acquisitions; (iii) investment income associated with the share of equity method investments; (iv) investment income associated with non-cash investment matters; (v) amortization of the BCF discount on the convertible notes; and (vi) tax effect of Non-GAAP line items. Non-GAAP basic and diluted net income per ADS is defined as Non-GAAP net income attributable to ordinary shareholders of the parent company divided by basic and diluted weighted average number of ADS. Yixin's Non-GAAP net income/(loss) is defined as net income/(loss) excluding (i) share-based compensation; (ii) amortization of intangible assets resulting from asset and business acquisitions; and (iii) tax effect of Non-GAAP line items. These Non-GAAP financial measures provide Bitauto's management with the ability to assess its operating results by excluding certain items that may not be indicative of the performance of its business such as non-cash and non-recurring items. Bitauto believes these Non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors by understanding supplemental information used by management in its assessment of operating results.

The use of Non-GAAP financial measures has certain limitations. These Non-GAAP measures exclude certain items that have been and will continue to be incurred in the future and are not reflected in the presentation of the Non-GAAP financial measures. These Non-GAAP financial measures should be considered in addition to results prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP, and should not be considered a substitute for or superior to U.S. GAAP results. In addition, these Non-GAAP financial measures may not be comparable to similarly titled measures utilized by other companies since such other companies may not calculate such measures in the same manner as Bitauto or Yixin does.

Reconciliation of these Non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measure is set forth at the end of this release.
