"We started 2020 with strong, 52.2%, year-over-year growth in net revenues, 10 percentage points higher than the growth rate implied by the high end of our guidance. In particular, K-12 one-on-one mass market net revenues increased 76.7% year-over-year to RMB404.2 million. This performance was driven by our continued strategic focus and successful execution of our K-12 one-on-one mass market offerings in non-tier-one cities[3], in addition to a direct incremental revenue boost from students spending more time at home amidst the COVID-19 outbreak and an increasing awareness of both our brand and online education," said Mr. Jack Jiajia Huang, Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of 51Talk. "Benefitting from these factors, our gross billings grew sequentially to RMB596.9 million. This growth was even more impressive in that it came versus our fourth quarter peak season. Our K-12 one-on-one mass market gross billings increased 44.6% year-over-year to RMB563.5 million, reaching 94.4% of our total gross billings. For the first quarter of 2020, our active students increased to 286,600 from 257,200 for the last quarter, up 11.4% sequentially.

"During the COVID-19 pandemic, aside from our previously announced donation of online classes and one-on-one English lessons to K-12 students in Wuhan and other impacted regions in China, we also donated medical supplies to the Philippines, in an effort to contribute to the country's pandemic recovery efforts.

"Our employees, especially those in Wuhan, overcame many difficulties arising from COVID-19 outbreak. In the first quarter of 2020, almost all of our colleagues in Wuhan worked from home, while only about half of the colleagues in other regions could come to the Company office. I am very proud of our employees who have made extraordinary efforts to help students maintain their study continuity during the COVID-19 outbreak. With their extraordinary efforts, we were able to largely preserve productivity and operational efficiencies during the lockdown period. We worked closely with our Filipino teachers to ensure they could conduct classes effectively at home to meet the rising demands of our students, promoting further integration of the education resources of China and the Philippines. These unprecedented times have further highlighted and deepened both the value and natural progression of online education in China. We have seen increasing penetration of online education in non-tier-one cities due to the COVID-19 outbreak. This, together with our strong performance in the first quarter, provides us even further confidence in our chosen pathway to sustained top-line growth and profitability, especially as we further fine tune our products and services, and continue to enhance our core business focus on K-12 one-on-one mass market offerings in non-tier-one cities," concluded Mr. Huang.

"Solid first quarter financial and operating performance helped us begin 2020 on a positive note," said Mr. Min Xu, Chief Financial Officer of 51Talk. "I am excited to report that in addition to robust growth in net revenues and gross billings, we delivered another profitable quarter with GAAP net income of RMB50.8 million and non-GAAP net income of RMB57.0 million. Excluding RMB16.9 million favorable impact of coronavirus relief policies, our GAAP and non-GAAP net profit margin was 7.0% and 8.2%, compared with GAAP and non-GAAP net loss margin of 20.7% and 19.5% for the same period last year, primarily resulting from significantly higher lesson consumption and operating efficiency gains. Additionally, we achieved record high operating cash flow of RMB172.7 million. To keep the Company on track for healthy growth and profitability, we have been proactively adapting our operational strategy. This has allowed us to minimize the potential business impact caused by the COVID-19 outbreak and maintain high efficiency at all levels, ultimately stimulating organic growth in brand recognition as a leading and dependable online education platform in China."

First Quarter 2020 Financial Results

Net Revenues

Net revenues for the first quarter of 2020 were RMB487.1 million (US$68.8 million), a 52.2% increase from RMB320.1 million for the same quarter last year. The increase was primarily attributed to the increases in the average revenue per active student and the number of active students. The average revenue per active student in the first quarter of 2020 increased by 20.7% year-over-year. The number of active students in the first quarter of 2020 was 286,600, a 26.0% increase from 227,400 for the same quarter last year.

Net revenues from one-on-one offerings for the first quarter of 2020 were RMB464.4 million (US$65.6 million), a 58.7% increase from RMB292.6 million for the same quarter last year. Net revenues from small class offerings for the first quarter of 2020 were RMB22.7 million (US$3.2 million), a 17.6% decrease from RMB27.5 million for the same quarter last year.

Cost of Revenues

Cost of revenues for the first quarter of 2020 was RMB144.0 million (US$20.3 million), a 36.2% increase from RMB105.7 million for the same quarter last year. The increase was primarily driven by an increase in total service fees paid to teachers, mainly due to an increased number of paid lessons.

As part of Chinese government's effort to ease the burden of businesses affected by the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, the Ministry of Human Resources and Social Security, the Ministry of Finance and the State Taxation Administration temporarily reduced and exempted employer obligation on social security contributions from February 2020. The impact of coronavirus policies on cost of revenues was RMB0.3 million in the first quarter. Excluding the impact, total cost of revenues for the first quarter would have been RMB144.3 million (US$20.4 million), representing a 36.5% year-over-year increase.

Cost of revenues of one-on-one offerings for the first quarter of 2020 was RMB133.6 million (US$18.9 million), a 47.2% increase from RMB90.8 million for the same quarter last year. Cost of revenues of small class offering for the first quarter of 2020 was RMB10.4 million (US$1.5 million), a 30.2% decrease from RMB14.9 million for the same quarter last year.

Gross Profit and Gross Margin

Gross profit for the first quarter of 2020 was RMB343.1 million (US$48.4 million), a 60.0% increase from RMB214.3 million for the same quarter last year. Gross margin for the first quarter of 2020 was 70.4%, compared with 67.0% for the same quarter last year.

Excluding the positive impact of the coronavirus related social security contribution exemption, gross profit and gross margin for the first quarter would have been RMB342.8 million (US$48.4 million) and 70.4% respectively.

Gross margin for one-on-one offerings in the first quarter of 2020 was 71.2%, compared with 69.0% for the same quarter last year. The increase was mainly attributable to 1) price increases and, 2) a favorable mix of higher margin products. 51Talk's small class offering gross margin for the first quarter of 2020 was 54.0%, compared with 45.7% for the first quarter of 2019. The increase was mainly due to the optimization of product structure of small class offerings by reducing the lower margined products.

Operating Expenses

Total operating expenses for the first quarter of 2020 were RMB314.9 million (US$44.5 million), a 13.2% increase from RMB278.1 million for the same quarter last year. The increase was the result of an increase in sales and marketing expenses, partially offset by decreases of product development expenses and general and administrative expenses.

Sales and marketing expenses for the first quarter of 2020 were RMB228.4 million (US$32.3 million), a 22.6% increase from RMB186.3 million for the same quarter last year. The increase was mainly due to higher marketing expenses and higher sales personnel costs related to increases in the number of sales and marketing personnel. Excluding share-based compensation expenses, non-GAAP sales and marketing expenses for the first quarter of 2020 were RMB226.1 million (US$31.9 million), a 21.5% increase from RMB186.0 million for the same quarter last year. Non-GAAP sales and marketing expenses, excluding branding expenses, were 32.3% of the gross billings for the first quarter of 2020, compared with 34.0 % for the same quarter last year. The impact of coronavirus policy related the exemption of employer obligation on social security contributions on sales and marketing expense was RMB3.7 million in the first quarter. Excluding the impact, sales and marketing expenses for the first quarter would have been RMB232.1 million (US$32.8 million), representing a 24.6% year-over-year increase.

Product development expenses for the first quarter of 2020 were RMB35.9 million (US$5.1 million), an 11.9% decrease from RMB40.7 million for the same quarter last year. The decrease was primarily due to a decrease in the number of personnel. Excluding share-based compensation expenses, non-GAAP product development expenses for the first quarter of 2020 were RMB36.0 million (US$5.1 million), a 10.4% decrease from RMB40.1 million for the same quarter last year. The impact of coronavirus policy related the exemption of employer obligation on social security contributions on product development expenses was RMB1.6 million in the first quarter. Excluding the impact, product development expenses for the first quarter would have been RMB37.5 million (US$5.3 million), representing a 7.9% year-over-year decrease.

General and administrative expenses for the first quarter of 2020 were RMB50.7 million (US$7.2 million), a 0.9% decrease from RMB51.2 million for the same quarter last year. Excluding share-based compensation expenses, non-GAAP general and administrative expenses for the first quarter of 2020 were RMB46.7 million (US$6.6 million), a 3.0% decrease from RMB48.1 million for the same quarter last year. The impact of coronavirus policy related the exemption of employer obligation on social security contributions on general and administrative expenses was RMB1.0 million in the first quarter. Excluding the impact, general and administrative expenses for the first quarter would have been RMB51.7 million (US$7.3 million), representing a 1.0% year-over-year increase.

Other income

As part of Chinese government's effort to ease the burden of businesses affected by the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak, the State Taxation Administration (STA) exempted a wide range of consumer services from value added tax (VAT) from January 2020. The income obtained by taxpayers from providing public living services shall be exempt from VAT. The favorable impact of coronavirus relief policies was RMB10.3 million in the first quarter.

On the September 30, 2019, Ministry of Finance and the State Taxation Administration announced that from October 1, 2019 to December 31, 2021, the taxpayers engaging in the provision of life services are allowed to deduct an extra 15% of the deductible input tax for the current period from the payable tax. The impact of the policy of additional value-added tax credit for the income generated by the life services provided by enterprises was RMB6.5 million in the first quarter.

Income/(loss) from Operations

Operating income for the first quarter of 2020 was RMB44.9 million (US$6.3 million), compared with loss from operations of RMB63.8 million for the same quarter last year.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In evaluating its business, 51Talk considers and uses the following measures defined as non-GAAP financial measures by the SEC as supplemental metrics to review and assess its operating performance: non-GAAP sales and marketing expenses, non-GAAP product development expenses, non-GAAP general and administrative expenses, non-GAAP operating expenses, non-GAAP operating income/(loss), non-GAAP net income/(loss), non-GAAP net income/(loss) attributable to ordinary shareholders, and non-GAAP net income/(loss) attributable to ordinary shareholders per share and per ADS. To present each of these non-GAAP measures, the Company excludes share-based compensation expenses. The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the table captioned "Reconciliations of non-GAAP measures to the most comparable GAAP measures" set forth at the end of this press release.

51Talk believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding its performance by excluding share-based compensation expenses that may not be indicative of its operating performance from a cash perspective. 51Talk believes that both management and investors benefit from these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing its performance and when planning and forecasting future periods. These non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate management's internal comparisons to 51Talk's historical performance. 51Talk computes its non-GAAP financial measures using the same consistent method from quarter to quarter and from period to period. 51Talk believes these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors in allowing for greater transparency with respect to supplemental information used by management in its financial and operational decision-making. A limitation of using non-GAAP measures is that these non-GAAP measures exclude share-based compensation expenses that have been and will continue to be for the foreseeable future a significant recurring expense in the 51Talk's business. Management compensates for these limitations by providing specific information regarding the GAAP amounts excluded from each non-GAAP measure. The accompanying table at the end of this press release provides more details on the reconciliations between GAAP financial measures that are most directly comparable to non-GAAP financial measures.

[5] By performing our last year-end financial closing procedures, we discovered an oversight in our process for evaluating the status of lessons that caused us to overstate net revenues during 2018 and in interim periods of 2019. The amounts were reflecting RMB2.9 million (including RMB 2.5 million out-of-period adjustment attributed to the year of 2018) and RMB0.7 million decreases to net revenues for the three months ended March 31, 2019 and December 31, 2019, respectively. Based on our quantitative and qualitative analysis, we do not consider the out of period impact to be material to our financial position or results of operations for any prior periods or for the quarter or year ended December 31, 2019.
