(2)  Non-GAAP loss from operations represents loss from operations excluding share-based compensation expenses.

 

Mr. Junling Liu, Co-Founder, Chairman, and Chief Executive Officer of 111, commented, “Despite all the challenges from pandemic lock-down in various parts of the country, we continued to grow our top line and gross segment profit in the first quarter of 2022, which brought us another step closer to profitability. Net revenue increased by 14.9% year-over-year to RMB 2.98 billion, marking the 15th consecutive quarter of year-over-year growth for 111 since our NASDAQ IPO.  The B2B segment achieved year-over-year revenue and segment profit increases by 17.0% and 90.7%, respectively. Our partnerships with pharmaceutical companies continued to grow and the direct purchase relationship totaled over 550 by the end of March 2022. Our market coverage from both upstream and downstream is increasing and customer loyalty continues to grow.”

Mr. Liu added, “In addition to topline growth, our gross segment profit grew 4.4 times as fast as our revenue in the first quarter. Gross segment profit grew by 66.3% year-over-year, and as a percentage of net revenues, our gross segment margins(3) improved to 6.5% as compared to 4.5% in the same quarter of last year. We are especially pleased with the margin improvement for the B2B segment, which as a percentage of net revenues, grew from 3.6% in the first quarter of 2021 to 5.9% in in the first quarter this year. Our operation efficiency also improved and total operating expenses as a percentage of net revenues decreased to 9.9% in this quarter as compared to 11.1% in the same quarter of last year.  We expect this momentum in improving operation efficiency to continue as we scale, putting us on a clear path to profitability. As a result, non-GAAP loss from operation as a percentage of net revenues decreased from 5.2% in the first quarter of 2021 to 2.4% in the first quarter this year.”

“We will continue to flawlessly execute our growth strategy and we are committed to steadily expand our revenue and gross segment profit.  We remain resolute on our goal to reach quarterly break-even at the non-GAAP operating income level in 2022.”

(3)  Gross segment margin represents gross segment profit divided by net revenues.

(4) For segment reporting purposes, purchase rebates are allocated to the B2B segment and B2C segments primarily based on the amount of cost of products sold for each segment.

Fulfillment expenses accounted for 3.2% of net revenues this quarter as compared to 2.6% in the same quarter of last year.  The increase was mainly attributable to our investment to expand the capacity of our fulfillment centers to support future growth.  The pandemic lock-down in various parts of the country also temporarily caused increases in delivery costs.

Non-GAAP loss from operations was RMB72.4 million (US$11.4 million), compared to RMB135.9million in the same quarter of last year. As a percentage of net revenues, non-GAAP loss from operations decreased to 2.4% in the quarter from 5.2% in the same quarter of last year.

(5) Non-GAAP net loss represents net loss excluding share-based compensation expenses, net of tax. Considering the impact of accretion of redeemable non-controlling interest for the first quarter 2022 (which pertains to the Group’s obligation to redeem equity interests held by certain minority investors of a subsidiary of the Company), non-GAAP net loss is used as a meaningful measurement of the operation performance of the Company.

(6) Non-GAAP net loss attributable to ordinary shareholders represents net loss attributable to ordinary shareholders excluding share-based compensation expenses, net of tax.

 

As of March 31, 2022, the Company has cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash and short-term investments of RMB901.4 million (US$142.2million), compared to RMB943.2 million as of December 31, 2021.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In evaluating the business, the Company considers and uses non-GAAP loss from operations, non-GAAP net loss, non-GAAP net loss attributable to ordinary shareholders, and non-GAAP loss per ADS, as supplemental measures to review and assess its operating performance. The Company defines non-GAAP loss from operations as loss from operations excluding share-based compensation expenses. The Company defines non-GAAP net loss as net loss excluding share-based compensation expenses, net of tax. The Company defines non-GAAP net loss attributable to ordinary shareholders as net loss attributable to ordinary shareholders excluding share-based compensation expenses, net of tax. The Company defines non-GAAP loss per ADS as net loss attributable to ordinary shareholders per ADS excluding share-based compensation expenses, net of tax per ADS. 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 U.S. GAAP.

The Company believes that non-GAAP loss from operations, non-GAAP net loss, non-GAAP net loss attributable to ordinary shareholders, and non-GAAP loss per ADS help identify underlying trends in its business that could otherwise be distorted by the effect of certain expenses that it includes in loss from operations and net loss. Share-based compensation expenses is a non-cash expense that varies from period to period. As a result, management excludes the items from its internal operating forecasts and models. Management believes that the adjustments for share-based compensation expenses provide investors with a reasonable basis to measure the company’s core operating performance, in a more meaningful comparison with the performance of other companies. The Company believes that non-GAAP loss from operations, non-GAAP net loss, non-GAAP net loss attributable to ordinary shareholders, and non-GAAP loss per ADS provide useful information about its operating results, enhances the overall understanding of its past performance and future prospects and allow for greater visibility with respect to key metrics used by the management in their financial and operational decision-making.

The non-GAAP financial measures are not defined under U.S. GAAP and are not presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools. One of the key limitations of using non-GAAP loss from operations, non-GAAP net loss, non-GAAP net loss attributable to ordinary shareholders, or non-GAAP loss per ADS is that it does not reflect all items of income and expense that affect the Company’s operations. Further, the non-GAAP financial measures 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 reconciling the non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable U.S. GAAP measures, all of which should be considered when evaluating the Company’s performance. The Company encourages you to review its financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.

Reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable U.S. GAAP measures is included at the end of this press release.
