Mr. Tongbo Liu, Chief Executive Officer of Sunlands, said, "2018 marked a year of strategic positioning and advancements for our Company. We completed our IPO, launched our AI-powered personalized study program, and broadened our graduate and post-graduate program offerings. We ended the year at the top end of our fourth quarter revenue guidance and narrowed our net loss margin.

"In 2018, we started to explore innovative ways to attract more students to our online learning platform. One of our biggest achievements was initiating free trials. By offering potential students our upgraded free trials withintroductory seminars and free short-courses, we believe we can increase average gross billings, conversion rates and sales efficiency over the longer-term.

"Our mission is to transform education with technology and innovation to make learning experiences enjoyable and rewarding. In line with these ideals, in 2018, we also began pursuing more user-friendly marketing tactics to introduce potential students not only to Sunlands' online STE platform, but to a broader range of our best-in-class programs. As we strengthen our brand awareness, we are capable of reaching a larger pool of prospective students who may benefit from our courses. In 2019, we will be focused on attracting more students to our platform by expanding our free trials with even more course offerings. We believe these initiatives will help develop online learning habits for more students, transferring them from offline to online, and enhance a stronger brand for Sunlands over the longer-term.

"As a pioneer in the massive and evolving online post-secondary and professional education market, we are dedicated to providing a comprehensive online continuing education ecosystem, powered by our proprietary software that is tailored to each student's learning patterns. In 2019, we will look to further expand our business and gain market share. Empowered by our one-to-many live streaming model, we plan to broaden our course offerings to serve a larger student base and leverage our premier AI-technology and industry leading online education platform to create additional value for our students, teachers, partners and investors," Mr. Liu concluded.

Mr. Steven Yipeng Li, Chief Financial Officer of Sunlands, said, "The continuous growth in the number of students[2] drove our growth in the fourth quarter, with our net revenues and gross profit increasing by 65.0% and 84.8%, respectively, year-over-year. Expanding our free trials with introductory seminars enabled us to enhance our sales productivity and efficiency, and our net loss margin decreased to 32.3% during the quarter from 124.1% in the fourth quarter of 2017. We plan to further invest in our growth by continuing to acquire and engineer best-in-breed content for our platform that supports our student acquisition efforts and maintains our leadership in the online post-secondary and professional education market."

About Sunlands

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

We use gross billings and EBITDA, each a non-GAAP financial measure, in evaluating our operating results and for financial and operational decision-making purposes.

We define gross billings for a specific period as the total amount of cash received for the sale of course packages, net of the total amount of refunds paid in such period. Our management uses gross billings as a performance measurement because we generally bill our students for the entire course tuition at the time of sale of our course packages and recognize revenue proportionally over a period. EBITDA is defined as net loss excluding depreciation and amortization, interest expense, interest income, and income tax expenses. We believe that gross billings and EBITDA provide valuable insight into the sales of our course packages and the performance of our business.

These non-GAAP financial measures should not be considered in isolation from, or as a substitute for, their most directly comparable financial measure prepared in accordance with GAAP. A reconciliation of the historical non-GAAP financial measures to their respective most directly comparable GAAP measure has been provided in the tables included below. Investors are encouraged to review the reconciliation of the historical non-GAAP financial measures to their respective most directly comparable GAAP financial measures. As gross billings and EBITDA have material limitations as an analytical metric and may not be calculated in the same manner by all companies, it may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures used by other companies. In light of the foregoing limitations, you should not consider gross billings and EBITDA as a substitute for, or superior to, their respective most directly comparable financial measures prepared in accordance with GAAP. We encourage investors and others to review our financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.
