Second Quarter 2020 Unaudited Financial Results

Net revenues were RMB350.9 million (US$49.7 million) in the second quarter of 2020, representing an increase of 56% from RMB225.0 million in the second quarter of 2019, and compared to RMB370.3 million in the previous quarter.

Audio entertainment revenues reached RMB344.1 million (US$48.7 million) in the second quarter of 2020, representing an increase of 55% from RMB222.2 million in the second quarter of 2019, and compared to RMB366.4 million in the first quarter of 2020. The year-over-year increase was mainly due to our increasingly expanding user base and the increase in the number of paying users in our interactive audio social entertainment products during the period. The quarter-over-quarter decrease was primarily attributable to the decrease of average user spending due to the impact on overall discretionary demand by the COVID-19.

Podcast, advertising and other revenues were RMB6.8 million (US$1.0 million) in the second quarter of 2020, an increase of 141% from RMB2.8 million in the second quarter of 2019, and an increase of 77% from RMB3.8 million in the first quarter of 2020, respectively. The quarter-over-quarter increase was mainly attributable to the increase of our advertising revenue. The year-over-year increase was primarily attributable to the increase in the number of paying users in our podcast services.

Cost of revenues was RMB265.2 million (US$37.5 million) in the second quarter of 2020, representing an increase of 65% year-over-year and a decrease of 11% quarter-over-quarter. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to the increase of revenue sharing fees, payment handling costs and bandwidth costs generally in line with the growth of the Company’s business, as well as the recognition of share-based compensation expenses that became effective upon the IPO. The quarter-over-quarter decrease was because (i) the revenue sharing fees and other costs decreased generally in line with the decrease of audio entertainment revenues, and (ii) we scaled down our incentive program in February 2020 which led to a decrease in revenue sharing fees for content creators in the second quarter of 2020. We may adjust our incentive program from time to time in the ordinary course of business.

Gross profit was RMB85.7 million (US$12.1 million) in the second quarter of 2020, representing an increase of 33% from RMB64.3 million in the second quarter of 2019 and an increase of 18% from RMB72.9 million in the first quarter of 2020.

Non-GAAP gross profit5was RMB90.5 million (US$12.8 million) in the second quarter of 2020, representing an increase of 41% from RMB64.3 million in the second quarter of 2019 and an increase of 16% from RMB78.0 million in the first quarter of 2020.

Gross margin was 24% in the second quarter of 2020, compared to 29% and 20% in the second quarter of 2019 and the first quarter of 2020, respectively. Non-GAAP gross margin was 26% in the second quarter of 2020, compared to 29% and 21% in the second quarter of 2019 and the first quarter of 2020, respectively.

Operating expenses were RMB110.8 million (US$15.7 million) in the second quarter of 2020, representing a decrease of 1% from RMB112.3 million in the second quarter of 2019 and a decrease of 8% from RMB120.6 million in the first quarter of 2020.

Research and development expenses were RMB54.8 million (US$7.8 million) in the second quarter of 2020, representing an increase of 66% from RMB33.1 million in the second quarter of 2019 and a decrease of 6% from RMB58.4 million in the first quarter of 2020. The quarter-over-quarter decrease was mainly attributable to a decrease in the outsourcing services in connection with technology consulting and related services. The year-over-year increase was mainly due to our efforts in the development of AI applications and enhancing data security, as well as the share-based compensation expenses recognized upon and after our IPO occurred in January 2020.

Balance Sheets

Business Outlook

Since various measures that the Chinese government implemented to constrain the COVID-19 outbreak have been relaxed, many aspects of daily life in China gradually returned to normal routine. However, the situation in certain countries and regions is still evolving, bringing with it unprecedented levels of macroeconomic disruption and uncertainties across the globe. The extent to which the COVID-19 impacts on the Company’s operations beyond the second quarter of 2020 will depend on future developments, which are subject to changes and substantial uncertainty and therefore cannot be predicted.    

For the third quarter of 2020, the Company currently expects net revenues to be in the range of RMB350 million to RMB370 million, representing a year-over-year growth of approximately 6.5% to 12.6%.

The above outlook is based on the current market conditions and reflects the Company’s preliminary estimates of market and operating conditions, and customer demand, which are all subject to change.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The unaudited condensed consolidated financial information is prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”).

LIZHI uses non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating loss, non-GAAP net loss, non-GAAP net loss attributable to LIZHI INC.'s ordinary shareholders and non-GAAP basic and diluted net loss per ADS, which are non-GAAP financial measures. Non-GAAP gross profit is gross profit excluding share-based compensation expenses. Non-GAAP gross margin is non-GAAP gross profit as a percentage of net revenues. Non-GAAP operating loss is operating loss excluding share-based compensation expenses. Non-GAAP net loss is net loss excluding share-based compensation expenses. Non-GAAP net loss attributable to LIZHI INC.'s ordinary shareholders is net loss attributable to LIZHI INC.’s ordinary shareholders excluding accretions to preferred shares redemption value and share-based compensation expenses. Non-GAAP basic and diluted net loss per ADS is non-GAAP net loss attributable to LIZHI INC.’s ordinary shareholders divided by weighted average number of ADS used in the calculation of basic and diluted net loss per ADS. The Company believes that separate analysis and exclusion of the non-cash impact of above reconciling items adds clarity to the constituent parts of its performance. The Company reviews these non-GAAP financial measures together with GAAP financial measures to obtain a better understanding of its operating performance. It uses the non-GAAP financial measure for planning, forecasting and measuring results against the forecast. The Company believes that non-GAAP financial measure is useful supplemental information for investors and analysts to assess its operating performance without the non-cash effect of accretions to preferred shares redemption value and share-based compensation expenses.

However, the use of non-GAAP financial measures has material limitations as an analytical tool. One of the limitations of using non-GAAP financial measures is that they do not include all items that impact the Company’s net loss for the period. In addition, because non-GAAP financial measures are not measured in the same manner by all companies, they may not be comparable to other similar titled measures used by other companies. In light of the foregoing limitations, you should not consider non-GAAP financial measure in isolation from, superior to, or as an alternative to the financial measure prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

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 U.S. GAAP. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the table captioned “Unaudited Reconciliations of GAAP and Non-GAAP Results” near the end of this release.
