Dr. Peng Dai, Director and Chief Executive Officer of iHuman, commented, "We kicked off 2022 with another solid quarter as average total MAUs reached a record high of 18.39 million during the period. The robust user growth was driven largely by word-of-mouth referrals which reflects our strong brand recognition and effective user retention strategies. As we continue to progress on achieving our vision of making the child-upbringing experience easier for parents and transforming cognitive development into a fun journey for children, we continued to build upon our market-leading products and technological capabilities and enhanced our portfolio to better assist parents with fun tools to support their kids' well-rounded development. For example, we expanded the content of iHumanpedia with a new dinosaur module, a highly popular theme amongst children. While solidifying our leading position in the domestic market, we have simultaneously increased our efforts in exploring new growth opportunities in international markets to fulfill the increasing demand for high-quality and easily accessible products like ours. Leveraging our extensive industry know-how, market-proven products, and cross-market synergies, we expect that our international business will further broaden our market reach and become a new growth engine going forward."

Ms. Vivien Weiwei Wang, Director and Chief Financial Officer of iHuman, added, "We are pleased with our performance in the first quarter and believe we are off to a good start in 2022. During the quarter, we continued to see robust underlying demand among families for our self-directed and interactive products that engage children in ways that stimulate their natural curiosity for the world and promote healthy and all-around development. We maintained a keen focus on cementing our market-leading position by expanding the product lineup and enhancing our technological capabilities. We have also taken initiatives and further broadened our investments in smart devices in order to better support the needs of children and parents. Looking ahead, we will work diligently to develop new products to keep up with the growing market demand and offer our users a more flexible and holistic experience when they use our products, which we believe will ultimately lead to an increase in their lifetime value. We will strive to continue scaling our business and creating more value for our shareholders."

[1] "Adjusted operating income" and "adjusted net income" exclude share-based compensation expenses. Please see "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" and "Unaudited Reconciliation of GAAP and non-GAAP Results" at the end of this press release.

[2] "Average total MAUs" refers to the monthly average of the sum of the MAUs of each of the Company's apps during a specific period, which is counted based on the number of unique mobile devices through which such app is accessed at least once in a given month, and duplicate access to different apps is not eliminated from the total MAUs calculation.

Exchange Rate Information

The U.S. dollar (US$) amounts disclosed in this press release, except for those transaction amounts that were actually settled in U.S. dollars, are presented solely for the convenience of the reader. The conversion of Renminbi (RMB) into US$ in this press release is based on the exchange rate set forth in the H.10 statistical release of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System as of March 31, 2022, which was RMB6.3393 to US$1.00. The percentages stated in this press release are calculated based on the RMB amounts.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

iHuman considers and uses non-GAAP financial measures, such as adjusted operating income, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted net income per ADS, as supplemental metrics in reviewing and assessing its operating performance and formulating its business plan. The presentation of 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 accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("U.S. GAAP"). iHuman defines adjusted operating income, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted net income per ADS as operating income, net income and diluted net income per ADS excluding share-based compensation expenses, respectively. Adjusted operating income, adjusted net income and adjusted diluted net income per ADS enable iHuman's management to assess its operating results without considering the impact of share-based compensation expenses, which are non-cash charges. iHuman believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information to investors in understanding and evaluating the Company's current operating performance and prospects in the same manner as management does, if they so choose.

Non-GAAP financial measures are not defined under U.S. GAAP and are not presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools, which possibly do not reflect all items of expense that affect our operations. Share-based compensation expenses have been and may continue to be incurred in our business and are not reflected in the presentation of the non-GAAP financial measures. In addition, the non-GAAP financial measures iHuman uses may differ from the non-GAAP measures used by other companies, including peer companies, and therefore their comparability may be limited. The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation from or as a substitute for the financial information prepared and presented in accordance with GAAP.
