Fourth Quarter 2021 Financial Results

Revenues

Our revenues were US$67.6 million in the fourth quarter of 2021, a 39.7% increase from US$48.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2020. The increase was primarily driven by the broadening of Yalla's and Yalla Ludo's user base and monetization capability enhancements. Our average MAUs increased by 71.0% from 16.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2020 to 28.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2021. Another primary contributor to our solid revenue growth was the significant growth in the number of paying users, which increased from 5.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2020 to 8.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2021.

In the fourth quarter of 2021, our revenues generated from chatting services were US$49.0 million and our revenues generated from games services were US$18.6 million.

Costs and expenses

Our total costs and expenses were US$49.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2021, compared with US$39.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2020. The increase was primarily due to our expanding business scale, partially offset by lower share-based compensation expenses recognized during the fourth quarter of 2021.

Our cost of revenues was US$23.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2021, compared with US$18.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2020.The increase was mainly driven by an increase in commission fees for third-party payment platforms resulting from our expanding business scale, partially offset by lower share-based compensation expenses of US$1.6 million recognized during the fourth quarter of 2021, a 25.7% decrease from US$2.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2020. Excluding share-based compensation expenses, cost of revenues as a percentage of our total revenues remained relatively stable at 33.0% in the fourth quarter of 2021, compared with 33.6% in the fourth quarter of 2020.

Our selling and marketing expenses were US$13.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2021, compared with US$7.6 million in the same period last year. The increase was mainly driven by higher advertising and market promotion expenses led by our continued user acquisition efforts and expanding product portfolio, partially offset by lower share-based compensation expenses of US$1.9 million during the fourth quarter of 2021, compared with US$3.2 million in the fourth quarter of 2020. Excluding share-based compensation expenses, selling and marketing expenses as a percentage of our total revenues increased from 9.2% in the fourth quarter of 2020 to 16.9% in the fourth quarter of 2021.

Our general and administrative expenses were US$8.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2021, compared with US$11.3 million in the same period last year. The decrease was mainly driven by lower share-based compensation expenses of US$4.7 million recognized during the fourth quarter of 2021, a 46.4% decrease from US$8.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2020, partially offset by an increase in salaries and other benefits for our general and administrative staff. This in turn was driven by an expansion of our general and administrative staff. Excluding share-based compensation expenses, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of our total revenues remained relatively stable at 5.1% in the fourth quarter of 2021, compared with 5.4% in the fourth quarter of 2020.

Our technology and product development expenses were US$3.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2021, compared with US$1.6 million in the same period last year. The increase was mainly driven by an increase in salaries and benefits for our technology and product development staff. As a result, excluding share-based compensation expenses, technology and product development expenses as a percentage of our total revenues increased from 2.9% in the fourth quarter of 2020 to 5.3% in the same period of 2021.

Full Year 2021 Financial Results

Revenues

Our revenues were US$273.1 million in 2021, a 102.4% increase from US$134.9 million in 2020. The increase was primarily driven by the expansion of Yalla's and Yalla Ludo's user base and monetization capability enhancements.

Our revenues generated from chatting services were US$208.2 million in 2021, and our revenues generated from games services were US$64.9 million in 2021.

Costs and expenses

Our total costs and expenses were US$190.1 million in 2021, compared with US$131.2 million in 2020. The increase was primarily due to our expanding business scale.

Our cost of revenues was US$95.1 million in 2021, compared with US$61.3 million in last year. The increase was mainly driven by an increase in commission fees for third-party payment platforms resulting from our expanding business scale, partially offset by lower share-based compensation expenses of US$6.3 million recognized during the fourth quarter of 2021, a 61.2% decrease from US$16.3 million in 2020. Excluding share-based compensation expenses, cost of revenues as a percentage of our total revenues remained relatively stable at 32.5% in 2021, compared with 33.4% in 2020.

Our selling and marketing expenses were US$42.4 million in 2021, compared with US$21.7 million in 2020. The increase was mainly driven by higher advertising and market promotion expenses attributable to our continued user acquisition efforts and expanding product portfolio. Excluding share-based compensation expenses, selling and marketing expenses as a percentage of our total revenues increased from 10.4% in 2020 to 11.8% in 2021, primarily due to higher spending on marketing activities related to new products.

Our general and administrative expenses were US$38.3 million in 2021, compared with US$43.0 million in 2020. The decrease was mainly driven by lower share-based compensation expenses of US$26.7 million recognized in 2021, a 25.5% decrease from US$35.9 million in 2020, partially offset by an increase in salaries and other benefits for our general and administrative staff. This in turn was driven by an expansion of our general and administrative staff. Excluding share-based compensation expenses, general and administrative expenses as a percentage of our total revenues decreased from 5.3% in 2020 to 4.2% in 2021 due to economies of scale.

Our technology and product development expenses were US$14.3 million in 2021, compared with US$5.2 million in 2020. The increase was mainly driven by an increase in salaries and benefits for our technology and product development staff.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement the financial measures prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles in the United States, or GAAP, this press release presents non-GAAP financial measures, namely non-GAAP operating income, non-GAAP net income, non-GAAP net margin and non-GAAP basic and diluted earnings per ordinary share, as supplemental measures to review and assess the Company's operating performance. The presentation of the 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 U.S. GAAP. We define non-GAAP operating income as operating income excluding share-based compensation. We define non-GAAP net income as net income excluding share-based compensation. We define non-GAAP net margin is non-GAAP net income as a percentage of revenues. We define non-GAAP net income attributable to Yalla Group Limited's shareholders as net income attributable to Yalla Group Limited's shareholders excluding share-based compensation. We define non-GAAP earnings per ordinary share as non-GAAP net income attributable to Yalla Group Limited's shareholders, divided by weighted average number of basic and diluted shares outstanding.

By excluding the impact of share-based compensation expenses, which are non-cash charges, the Company believes that the non-GAAP financial measures help identify underlying trends in its business and enhance the overall understanding of the Company's past performance and future prospects. Investors can better understand the Company's operating and financial performance, compare business trends among different reporting periods on a consistent basis and assess its core operating results, as they exclude share-based compensation expenses, which are not expected to result in cash payments. The Company also believes that the non-GAAP financial measures allow for greater visibility with respect to key metrics used by the Company's management in its financial and operational decision-making.

The non-GAAP financial measure is not defined under U.S. GAAP and are not presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The non-GAAP financial measure has limitations as analytical tools. One of the key limitations of using the non-GAAP financial measures is that they do not reflect all items of income and expense that affect the Company's operations. Share-based compensation has been and may continue to be incurred in the Company's business and is not reflected in the presentation of non-GAAP financial measures. Further, the non-GAAP financial measure may differ from the non-GAAP information used by other companies, including peer companies, and therefore their comparability may be limited.

The Company compensates for these limitations by providing the relevant disclosure of its non-GAAP financial measures in the reconciliations to the nearest U.S. GAAP performance measures, all of which should be considered when evaluating its performance. The Company encourages investors and others to review its financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.

Reconciliation of GAAP and non-GAAP results is set forth at the end of this press release.
