“We continue to broaden and refresh our platform and content offerings to drive growth,” said Mr. Jinnan (Marco) Lai, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of LIZHI. “During the third quarter, we completed key accomplishments for Lizhi App, regrouping podcast content into a new set of genres designed to better resonate with young generation users, as well as optimizing social interaction features and products to increase the vitality of our UGC community. As we effectively execute on our content strategy, the number of podcasts on our platform continued to grow, reaching 234 million as of September 30, 2020, which represents more than 19 million net additions over the previous quarter. These critical advancements among others support our growth objectivities, and in the third quarter our average total mobile MAUs grew by 21% year-over-year.

Despite unprecedented macro challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic, our growth momentum reaffirms the rising demand for digital audio experiences and audio social interactions. We are meeting users’ evolving demands for listening experiences, enhancing user engagement through AI technology and capturing broad opportunities in the online audio market. Leveraging our massive content base and advanced technology capabilities, we will cooperate with automobile manufacturers to deploy the in-car audio market and tap into a sizable market with great potential. Looking ahead, we will continue to execute on our growth initiatives, keep expanding our massive content library and enhance the vibrancy of our dynamic user communities,” concluded Mr. Lai.

Ms. Chengfang Lu, Acting Chief Financial Officer of LIZHI, said, “During the third quarter, the financial results were in line with our expectation. Our endeavor to increase operating leverage, brought about a set of improvements in profitability during the quarter. We are pleased to see our net loss narrowed down by 87% year-over-year and 72% quarter-over-quarter, and encouragingly, we achieved non-GAAP net income in this quarter. In the near future, we will continue to carry out our user growth strategy and remain dedicated to enhancing our content ecosystem, strengthening brand awareness, expanding technology capabilities and advancing our strategic initiatives to build out our platform for sustainable growth.”

Third Quarter 2020 Unaudited Financial Results

Net revenues were RMB361.5 million (US$53.2 million) in the third quarter of 2020, representing an increase of 10% from RMB328.7 million in the third quarter of 2019, and an increase of 3% from RMB350.9 million in the previous quarter.

Audio entertainment revenues reached RMB355.8 million (US$52.4 million) in the third quarter of 2020, representing an increase of 9% from RMB325.2 million in the third quarter of 2019 and an increase of 3% from RMB344.1 million in the second 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 for our interactive audio social entertainment products during the period. The quarter-over-quarter increase was primarily attributable to the increase in average user spending.

Podcast, advertising and other revenues were RMB5.7 million (US$0.8 million) in the third quarter of 2020, representing an increase of 61% from RMB3.5 million in the third quarter of 2019, and a decrease of 17% from RMB6.8 million in the second quarter of 2020, respectively. The year-over-year increase was primarily attributable to the increase in the number of paying users in our podcast services and advertisers. The quarter-over-quarter decrease was mainly attributable to the decrease in our advertising revenue.

Cost of revenues was RMB270.9 million (US$39.9 million) in the third quarter of 2020, representing an increase of 2% both year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to the increase of salary and welfare benefits, payment handling costs and bandwidth costs, which were 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 and after the Company’s initial public offering (“IPO”), partially offset by a 1% decrease in the revenue sharing fees because the incentive program for content creators we launched in the third quarter of 2019 has been scaled down since February 2020. The quarter-over-quarter increase was mainly due to the increase of revenue sharing fees to our content creators, which was in line with the growth of the revenues, partially offset by the decrease of share-based compensation expenses in this quarter.

Gross profit was RMB90.6 million (US$13.3million) in the third quarter of 2020, representing an increase of 41% from RMB64.1 million in the third quarter of 2019 and an increase of 6% from RMB85.7 million in the second quarter of 2020.

Non-GAAP gross profit4 was RMB91.9 million (US$13.5 million) in the third quarter of 2020, representing an increase of 43% from RMB64.1 million in the third quarter of 2019 and an increase of 1% from RMB90.5 million in the second quarter of 2020.

Gross margin was 25% in the third quarter of 2020, compared to 20% and 24% in the third quarter of 2019 and the second quarter of 2020, respectively. Non-GAAP gross margin was 25% in the third quarter of 2020, compared to 20% and 26% in the third quarter of 2019 and the second quarter of 2020, respectively.

Operating expenses were RMB100.2 million (US$14.8 million) in the third quarter of 2020, representing a decrease of 13% from RMB115.8 million in the third quarter of 2019 and a decrease of 10% from RMB110.8 million in the second quarter of 2020.

Research and development expenses were RMB55.6 million (US$8.2 million) in the third quarter of 2020, representing an increase of 28% from RMB43.6 million in the third quarter of 2019 and an increase of 1% from RMB54.8 million in the second quarter of 2020. The year-over-year increase was mainly due to our increasing number of research and development employees, as well as the share-based compensation expenses recognized upon and after our IPO in January 2020. The quarter-over-quarter increase was mainly attributable to an increase in the salary and welfare benefits expenses, partially offset by the decrease in expenses related to research and development services provided by third parties.

The decreases were primarily attributable to reduced expenses related to branding and promotional activities in the third quarter of 2020.

Balance Sheets

As of September 30, 2020, the Company had cash and cash equivalents, restricted cash and short-term investments of RMB350.6 million (US$51.6 million).

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. The extent to which the COVID-19 impacts on the Company's operations beyond the third quarter of 2020 will depend on future developments of the pandemic in China and across the globe, which are subject to changes and substantial uncertainty and therefore cannot be predicted.

For the fourth quarter of 2020, the Company currently expects net revenues to be in the range of RMB370 million to RMB400 million.

The above outlook is based on the current market conditions, including those related to the COVID-19 pandemic, 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/income, non-GAAP net loss/income attributable to LIZHI INC.'s ordinary shareholders and non-GAAP basic and diluted net loss/income 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/income is net loss/income excluding share-based compensation expenses. Non-GAAP net loss/income attributable to LIZHI INC.'s ordinary shareholders is net loss/income 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/income per ADS is non-GAAP net loss/income attributable to LIZHI INC.’s ordinary shareholders divided by weighted average number of ADS used in the calculation of basic and diluted net loss/income 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.
