Yunji Announces First Quarter 2022 Unaudited Financial Results

HANGZHOU, China, May 31, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Yunji Inc. ("Yunji" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: YJ), a leading membership-based social e-commerce platform, today announced its unaudited financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2022[1].

First Quarter 2022 Highlights

  • Total revenues in the first quarter of 2022 were RMB342.6 million (US$54.0 million), compared with RMB675.4 million in the same period of 2021, primarily due to the negative impact of the outbreaks of the highly-transmissible Delta and Omicron variants of COVID-19 in early 2022 on the Company's operations and the Company's continued strategy to refine its product selection across all categories and optimize its selection of suppliers and merchants, causing near-term decreases in sales. The COVID-19 outbreaks in early 2022 have caused varying degrees of temporary shutdowns and delays in production and operation of the Company's suppliers (especially private label suppliers), third-party merchants, third-party logistics service providers and other business partners, leading to temporary shortages of certain merchandise and delays in logistics services as well as delays in the research and development and new product launch processes associated with the Company's private label suppliers. This has negatively affected and may continue to negatively affect the Company's revenues and operations in 2022, depending on the future development of the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Repeat purchase rate[2] in the twelve months ended March 31, 2022 was 80.2%.

Mr. Shanglue Xiao, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Yunji, said, "We recently celebrated the seven-year anniversary of our incorporation and are excited to start a new chapter of our business with an upgraded product curation strategy. Our new strategy will further augment the development and promotion of high-quality products and our own private label brands. We believe in our strong growth potential as we execute on our upgraded strategy through the current transitory macro headwinds."

"Despite the turbulent macro environment, we maintained a steady and healthy performance and achieved operating profitability for the fourth consecutive quarter. During the first quarter of 2022, we recorded operating income of RMB2.4 million (US$0.4 million), compared to operating loss of RMB19.8 million in the same period last year. Our product curation and supply chain differentiation strategies enable us to more tightly control our business operations and further optimize our cost structure. We remain confident in our ability to navigate the current challenges through our agile and flexible operations." said Mr. Peng Zhang, Yunji's Vice President of Finance.

First Quarter 2022 Unaudited Financial Results

Total revenues were RMB342.6 million (US$54.0 million), compared with RMB675.4 million in the same period of 2021. This decrease was primarily due to the negative impact of the outbreaks of the highly-transmissible Delta and Omicron variants of COVID-19 in early 2022 on the Company's operations and the Company's continued strategy to refine its product selection across all categories and optimize its selection of suppliers and merchants, causing near-term decreases in sales. The COVID-19 outbreaks in early 2022 have caused varying degrees of temporary shutdowns and delays in production and operation of the Company's suppliers (especially private label suppliers), third-party merchants, third-party logistics service providers and other business partners, leading to temporary shortages of certain merchandise and delays in logistics services as well as delays in the research and development and new product launch processes associated with the Company's private label suppliers. This has negatively affected and may continue to negatively affect the Company's revenues and operations in 2022, depending on the future development of the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • Revenues from sales of merchandise, net decreased by 49.2% to RMB290.5 million (US$45.8 million) from RMB571.9 million in the same period of 2021.
  • Revenues from the marketplace business were RMB47.4 million (US$7.5 million), compared with RMB95.4 million in the same period of 2021.
  • Other revenues decreased by 42.2% to RMB4.7 million (US$0.7 million) from RMB8.1 million in the same period of 2021.

Total cost of revenues decreased by 56.5% to RMB191.3 million (US$30.2 million), or 55.8% of total revenues, from RMB439.4 million, or 65.1% of total revenues, in the same period of 2021. The decrease was mainly attributable to the decline in merchandise sales, which recognize revenues on a gross basis. Total cost of revenues was mainly comprised of those costs related to the sales of merchandise revenue in the first quarter of 2022.

Total operating expenses decreased by 43.2% to RMB154.9 million (US$24.4 million) from RMB272.7 million in the same period of 2021.

  • Fulfillment expenses decreased by 24.6% to RMB48.9 million (US$7.7 million), or 14.3% of total revenues, from RMB64.8 million, or 9.6% of total revenues, in the same period of 2021. The decrease was primarily due to: (i) reduced personnel costs due to staffing structure refinements, and (ii) decreased service fees charged by third-party payment settlement platforms.
  • Sales and marketing expenses decreased by 47.4% to RMB50.7 million (US$8.0 million), or 14.8% of total revenues, from RMB96.3 million, or 14.3% of total revenues, in the same period of 2021. The decrease was mainly due to the decrease in member management fees.
  • Technology and content expenses decreased by 35.6% to RMB24.1 million (US$3.8 million), or 7.0% of total revenues, from RMB37.5 million, or 5.6% of total revenues, in the same period of 2020. The decrease was mainly due to the reduction in personnel costs as a result of staffing structure refinements and reduced server costs.
  • General and administrative expenses decreased by 57.8% to RMB31.2 million (US$4.9 million), or 9.1% of total revenues, from RMB74.1 million, or 11.0% of total revenues, in the same period of 2021, primarily due to a decrease in share-based compensation expenses and reduced personnel costs as a result of staffing structure refinements.

Income from operations was RMB2.4 million (US$0.4 million), compared with loss from operations of RMB19.8 million in the same period of 2021.

Financial loss, net was RMB35.3 million (US$5.6 million), compared with financial income, net of RMB20.5 million in the same period of 2021, primarily due to the decreased fair value of equity securities with readily determinable fair value.

Net loss was RMB36.9 million (US$5.8 million), compared with RMB4.0 million in the same period of 2021.

Adjusted net loss (non-GAAP)[3] was RMB30.6 million (US$4.8 million), compared with adjusted net income of RMB17.1 million in the same period of 2021.

Basic and diluted net loss per share attributable to ordinary shareholders were both RMB0.02, compared with nil in the same period of 2021.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In evaluating the business, the Company considers and uses adjusted net income/(loss) as a supplemental measure to review and assess operating performance. The presentation of this non-GAAP financial measure 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. The Company defines adjusted net income/(loss) as net income/(loss) excluding share-based compensation.

The Company presents adjusted net income/(loss) because it is used by management to evaluate operating performance and formulate business plans. Adjusted net income/(loss) enables management to assess operating performance without considering the impact of share-based compensation recorded under ASC 718, "Compensation-Stock Compensation." The Company also believes that the use of this non-GAAP measure facilitates investors' assessment of operating performance.

This non-GAAP financial measure is not defined under U.S. GAAP and is not presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The non-GAAP financial measure has limitations as an analytical tool. One of the key limitations of using adjusted net income/(loss) is that it does 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 Yunji's business and is not reflected in the presentation of adjusted net income/(loss). Further, this non-GAAP measure may differ from the non-GAAP information used by other companies, including peer companies, and therefore its comparability may be limited.

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

For more information on the non-GAAP financial measures, please see the table captioned "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures to the Most Directly Comparable Financial Measures" set forth at the end of this press release.

1. This announcement contains translations of certain Renminbi (RMB) amounts into U.S. dollars (US$) at a specified rate solely for the convenience of the reader. Unless otherwise noted, the translation of RMB into US$ has been made at RMB6.3393 to US$1.00, the exchange rate in effect as of March 31, 2022 as set forth in the H.10 statistical release of The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System.

2. "Repeat purchase rate" in a given period is calculated as the number of transacting members who purchased not less than twice divided by the total number of transacting members during such period. "Transacting member" in a given period refers to a member who successfully promotes Yunji's products to generate at least one order or places at least one order on Yunji's platform, regardless of whether any product in such order is ultimately sold or delivered or whether any product in such order is returned.

3. Adjusted net income/(loss) is a non-GAAP financial measure, which is defined as net income/(loss) excluding share-based compensation expense. See "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures to the Most Directly Comparable Financial Measures" set forth at the end of this press release.

4. As of March 31, 2022, the decrease in incentive payables was mainly due to derecognition of long-aged payables to inactive members starting this quarter.

5. Income tax expense for the first quarter of 2022 was RMB5.3 million (US$0.8 million), compared to RMB3.2 million in the same period of 2021. The Company's effective tax rate was changed primarily due to some of the subsidiaries continually making profit in addition to those profitable subsidiaries utilizing the tax loss carry forwards from previous years.
