Mr. Meisong Lai, Founder, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of ZTO, commented, “For the first quarter, China’s express delivery industry benefited from the steady recovery and growth of domestic economy and achieved a 75% parcel volume growth against a low comparative base last year. With 4.5 billion parcels, ZTO grew its volume 13.5 percentage points faster than the industry average and expanded our market share by 1.5 percentage points to 20.4% from last year.”

Mr. Lai added, “The competitive dynamics of China’s express delivery industry continued to evolve. While profit level declined for the industry due to price competition that remained intense, those with stronger capacity and more stable partner network delivered better performance results. Since its early years, ZTO has devoted resources towards continuous development of infrastructure and cultivation of trust and loyalty by its network partners. Relying on our leading throughput capability and effective incentive policies across our network, we achieved healthy levels of market share expansion and earnings as we remained number one in customer satisfaction ranking. We firmly believe, our consistent strategy and execution through high quality of service backed by leading scale and efficiency will provide the winning edge going forward.”

Ms. Huiping Yan, Chief Financial Officer of ZTO, commented, “We achieved RMB 782 million adjusted net profit that increased 23.1%. Our core express delivery business ASP declined by 12.4%, the least amount of drop compared with industry peers, yet we have achieved the most market share gain. The combined unit sorting and transportation costs efficiency gain was 5.2% despite the absence of favorable effects of ETC toll waiver policy that expired May last year, and our lean corporate structure continued to contribute positively to the bottom line.”

Ms. Yan added, “Cash flow from operating activities increased 168.3% to reach RMB 477 million in the quarter. Capital expenditures was RMB 2.3 billion as we focus more on building comprehensive logistics service capabilities. We have set distinctive targets towards differentiating products and services across logistics landscape to serve a greater array of consumers and businesses in the next 3 to 5 years.”

Total Revenues were RMB6,472.5 million (US$987.9 million), an increase of 65.3% from RMB3,915.9 million in the same period of 2020. Revenue from the core express delivery business increased by 65.2% compared to the same period of 2020, as a combined result of an 88.5% increase in parcel volume and a 12.4% decrease in parcel unit price mainly driven by competition and per parcel weight decline. Revenue from freight forwarding services increased by 66.8% compared to the same period of 2020, driven by surging cross border e-commerce demand and improved pricing amidst the COVID-19 outbreak globally. Revenue from sales of accessories, largely consisting of the sales of thermal paper used for digital waybills’ printing, increased by 47.0%, much lower than volume increase due to increasing usage of lower-priced single-sheet digital waybill that reduces carbon footprint. Other revenues were mainly derived from financing services and advertising services.

Total cost of revenues was RMB5,376.0 million (US$820.5 million), an increase of 73.6% from RMB3,097.2 million in the same period last year.

Line haul transportation cost was RMB2,533.9 million (US$386.8 million), an increase of 95.3% from RMB1,297.4 million in the same period last year. The increase was mainly due to (i) expiration of federal toll road fee waiver policy from mid-February to early May 2020 during the pandemic, and (ii) lower domestic diesel price during the pandemic outbreak last year. As a result, the line-haul transportation cost per parcel increased by 3.6% to RMB0.57 net of positive effects from increased usage of more self-owned higher-capacity vehicles.

Sorting hub operating cost was RMB1,511.4 million (US$230.7 million), an increase of 56.5% from RMB965.8 million in the same period last year. The increase was primarily consisted of (i) RMB436.5 million (US$66.6 million) increase in labor-associated costs, and (ii) RMB61.8 million (US$9.4 million) increase in depreciation and amortization costs due to the increased number of installed automated sorting equipment. As of March 31, 2021, 349 sets of automated sorting equipment were in service, compared to 265 sets as of March 31, 2020. The sorting hub operating cost per parcel decreased by 17.0% to RMB0.34 benefiting from higher level of automation and improved economies of scale.

Cost of accessories sold was RMB74.6 million (US$11.4 million), relatively stable compared with RMB74.5 million in the same period last year as a combined result of package volume increase and per unit cost decrease as single-sheet digital waybill adoption rate increased.

Other costs were RMB819.8 million (US$125.1 million), an increase of RMB347.8 million (US$53.1 million) compared to the same period last year. The increase was mainly consisted of (i) an increase of RMB243.3 million (US$37.1 million) in dispatching costs serving enterprise customers which is reasonable against the associated volume increase of 117.3%, (ii) an increase of RMB84.0 million (US$12.8 million) in expenses related to the development of technology platform and (iii) an increase of RMB21.2 million (US$3.2 million) in tax surcharge.

Gross Profit was RMB1,096.5 million (US$167.4 million), an increase of 33.9% from RMB818.7 million in the same period last year. Gross margin rate was 16.9% compared to 20.9% in the same period last year as a net result of competition-led ASP decline of 12.4% for the core express delivery partially offset by related unit cost decline of 6.7%.

Total Operating Expenses were RMB463.7 million (US$70.8 million), compared to RMB446.6 million in the same period last year.

Selling, general and administrative expenses were RMB620.2 million (US$94.7 million), increased by 10.7% from RMB560.1 million in the same period last year, mainly due to an increase of RMB50.3 million (US$7.7 million) in salaries and accrued performance-based bonuses.

Other operating income, net was RMB156.6 million (US$23.9 million), compared to RMB113.4 million in the same period last year. Other operating income mainly consisted of (i) government subsidies and tax rebates of RMB89.7 million (US$13.7 million), and (ii) RMB56.6 million (US$8.6 million) of VAT super deduction.

Income from operations was RMB632.9 million (US$96.6 million), an increase of 70.1% from RMB372.0 million for the same period last year. Operating margin rate increased to 9.8% from 9.5% in the same period last year mainly due to improved operating leverage.

Interest income was RMB75.5 million (US$11.5 million), compared with RMB126.2 million in the same period last year.

Interest expenses was RMB15.6 million (US$2.4 million), compared with RMB0.3 million in the same period last year.

Gain from fair value changes of financial instruments was RMB15.8 million (US$2.4 million), which reflected fair value changes, assessed using redemption prices estimated by selling banks, on dual currency notes/deposits, foreign exchange options and forward contracts. There were no similar financial instruments in the same period last year.

Income tax expenses were RMB149.6 million (US$22.8 million) compared to RMB129.8 million in the same period last year.

Net income was RMB533.5 million (US$81.4 million), which increased by 43.8% from RMB371.0 million in the same period.

Adjusted net income was RMB781.6 million (US$119.3 million), compared with RMB635.1 million during the same period last year.

EBITDA was RMB1,220.1 million (US$186.2 million), compared with RMB909.3 million in the same period last year.

Above estimates represent management’s current and preliminary view, which are subject to change.

Unless otherwise noted, all translations from Renminbi to U.S. dollars were made at the exchange rate of RMB6.5518 to US$1.00, the noon buying rate on March 31, 2021 as set forth in the H.10 statistical release of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve Systems.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company uses adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income, adjusted net income attributable to ordinary shareholders and adjusted basic and diluted earnings per American depositary share, each a non-GAAP financial measure, in evaluating ZTO’s operating results and for financial and operational decision-making purposes.

Reconciliations of the Company’s non-GAAP financial measures to its U.S. GAAP financial measures are shown in tables at the end of this earnings release, which provide more details about the non-GAAP financial measures.

The Company believes that adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income, adjusted net income attributable to ordinary shareholders and adjusted basic and diluted earnings per American depositary share help identify underlying trends in ZTO’s business that could otherwise be distorted by the effect of the expenses and gains that the Company includes in income from operations and net income. The Company believes that adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income, adjusted net income attributable to ordinary shareholders and adjusted basic and diluted earnings per American depositary share provide useful information about its operating results, enhance the overall understanding of its past performance and future prospects and allow for greater visibility with respect to key metrics used by ZTO’s management in its financial and operational decision-making.

Adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income, adjusted net income attributable to ordinary shareholders and adjusted basic and diluted earnings per American depositary share should not be considered in isolation or construed as an alternative to net income or any other measure of performance or as an indicator of the Company’s operating performance. Investors are encouraged to compare the historical non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable GAAP measures. Adjusted EBITDA, adjusted net income, adjusted net income attributable to ordinary shareholders and adjusted basic and diluted earnings per American depositary share presented here may not be comparable to similarly titled measures presented by other companies. Other companies may calculate similarly titled measures differently, limiting their usefulness as comparative measures to ZTO’s data. ZTO encourages investors and others to review the Company’s financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.
