Yunji Announces First Quarter 2023 Unaudited Financial Results

Yunji Announces First Quarter 2023 Unaudited Financial Results

HANGZHOU, China, June 2, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Yunji Inc. ("Yunji" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: YJ), a leading membership-based social e-commerce platform, today announced its unaudited financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2023[1].

First Quarter 2023 Highlights

  • Total revenues in the first quarter of 2023 were RMB178.7 million (US$26.0 million), compared with RMB342.6 million in the same period of 2022. The change was primarily due to the Company's continued strategy to refine its product selection across all categories and optimize its selection of suppliers and merchants, which had a near-term impact on sales. Also, consumer confidence and spending power require further momentum before witnessing a full recovery.
  • Repeat purchase rate[2] in the twelve months ended March 31, 2023 was 80.2%.

Mr. Shanglue Xiao, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Yunji, said, "The first quarter marked a transitional phase as China reopened, following a challenging year in which we faced numerous obstacles. We took proactive measures to address these challenges through a series of strategic upgrades and realignments. Notably, we recorded a repeat repurchase rate of 80% during the quarter, which demonstrated the loyalty of our users and the strength and popularity of our wide range of featured products. Looking ahead, we will continue to operate flexibly while nimbly adapting and responding to emerging trends as the consumer market recovers. At the same time, we remain committed to developing innovative private label products to reward our devoted users who have accompanied us on this journey."

"Our continued efforts to optimize cost structures and enhance efficiency have delivered significant results. We have successfully generated RMB1.0 million (US$0.1million) operating income and narrowed our net losses by 37.8% in the first quarter of 2023. Moving forward, we will continue to operate prudently and efficiently, laying a solid foundation for our future development," said Mr. Peng Zhang, Yunji's Vice President of Finance.

First Quarter 2023 Unaudited Financial Results

Total revenues were RMB178.7 million (US$26.0 million), compared with RMB342.6 million in the same period of 2022. This change was primarily due to the Company's continued strategy to refine its product selection across all categories and optimize its selection of suppliers and merchants, which had a near-term impact on sales.

  • Revenues from sales of merchandise were RMB143.0 million (US$20.8 million), compared with RMB290.5 million in the same period of 2022.
  • Revenues from the marketplace business were RMB32.9 million (US$4.8 million), compared with RMB47.4 million in the same period of 2022.
  • Other revenues were RMB2.8 million (US$0.4 million), compared with RMB4.7 million in the same period of 2022.

Total cost of revenues decreased by 51.1% to RMB93.5 million (US$13.6 million), or 52.3% of total revenues, from RMB191.3 million, or 55.8% of total revenues, in the same period of 2022. The decrease was mainly attributable to the change in merchandise sales, for which revenues are recognized on a gross basis. Total cost of revenues was mainly comprised of the costs related to the sales of merchandise in the first quarter of 2023.

Total operating expenses decreased by 45.0% to RMB85.3 million (US$12.4 million) from RMB154.9 million in the same period of 2022.

  • Fulfillment expenses decreased by 44.6% to RMB27.1 million (US$3.9 million), or 15.2% of total revenues, from RMB48.9 million, or 14.3% of total revenues, in the same period of 2022. The decrease was primarily due to (i) reduced warehousing and logistics expenses due to lower merchandise sales, (ii) reduced personnel costs as a result of staffing structure refinements, and (iii) a decrease in share-based compensation expenses.
  • Sales and marketing expenses decreased by 41.6% to RMB29.6 million (US$4.3 million), or 16.6% of total revenues, from RMB50.7 million, or 14.8% of total revenues, in the same period of 2022. The decrease was mainly due to (i) the reduction in personnel costs as a result of staffing structure refinements, (ii) a decrease in member management fees, and (iii) reduced business promotion expenses.
  • Technology and content expenses decreased by 44.7% to RMB13.4 million (US$1.9 million), or 7.5% of total revenues, from RMB24.1 million, or 7.0% of total revenues, in the same period of 2022. The decrease was mainly due to (i) the reduction in personnel costs as a result of staffing structure refinements, and (ii) reduced cloud server costs.
  • General and administrative expenses decreased by 51.4% to RMB15.2 million (US$2.2 million), or 8.5% of total revenues, from RMB31.2 million, or 9.1% of total revenues, in the same period of 2022, primarily due to (i) reduced personnel costs as a result of staffing structure refinements, (ii) lower professional service fees, and (iii) a decrease in share-based compensation expenses.

Income from operations was RMB1.0 million (US$0.1 million), compared with RMB2.4 million in the same period of 2022.

Financial loss, net was RMB22.2 million (US$3.2 million), compared with RMB35.3 million in the same period of 2022, primarily due to a continuous decline in the fair value changes of equity securities investments.

Net loss was RMB22.9 million (US$3.3 million), compared with RMB36.9 million in the same period of 2022.

Adjusted net loss (non-GAAP)[3] was RMB27.2 million (US$4.0 million), compared with RMB30.6 million in the same period of 2022.

Basic and diluted net loss per share attributable to ordinary shareholders were both RMB0.01, compared with RMB0.02 in the same period of 2022.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In evaluating the business, the Company considers and uses adjusted net income/(loss) as a supplemental measure to review and assess operating performance. The presentation of this non-GAAP financial measure 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 defines adjusted net income/(loss) as net income/(loss) excluding share-based compensation.

The Company presents adjusted net income/(loss) because it is used by management to evaluate operating performance and formulate business plans. Adjusted net income/(loss) enables management to assess operating performance without considering the impact of share-based compensation recorded under ASC 718, "Compensation-Stock Compensation." The Company also believes that the use of this non-GAAP measure facilitates investors' assessment of operating performance.

This non-GAAP financial measure is not defined under U.S. GAAP and is not presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The non-GAAP financial measure has limitations as an analytical tool. One of the key limitations of using adjusted net income/(loss) is that it does not reflect all items of income and expense that affect the Company's operations. Share-based compensation has been and may continue to be incurred in Yunji's business and is not reflected in the presentation of adjusted net income/(loss). Further, this non-GAAP measure may differ from the non-GAAP information used by other companies, including peer companies, and therefore its comparability may be limited.

The Company compensates for these limitations by reconciling the non-GAAP financial measure to the nearest U.S. GAAP performance measure, all of which should be considered when evaluating performance. Yunji encourages investors and others to review its financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.

For more information on the non-GAAP financial measures, please see the table captioned "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures to the Most Directly Comparable Financial Measures" set forth at the end of this press release.

Unless otherwise noted, the translation of RMB into US$ has been made at RMB6.8676 to US$1.00, the exchange rate in effect as of March 31, 2023 as set forth in the H.10 statistical release of The Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System.

[2].  "Repeat purchase rate" in a given period is calculated as the number of transacting members who purchased not less than twice divided by the total number of transacting members during such period. "Transacting member" in a given period refers to a member who successfully promotes Yunji's products to generate at least one order or places at least one order on Yunji's platform, regardless of whether any product in such order is ultimately sold or delivered or whether any product in such order is returned.

[3].  Adjusted net loss is a non-GAAP financial measure, which is defined as net loss excluding share-based compensation expense. See "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Measures to the Most Directly Comparable Financial Measures" set forth at the end of this press release.

[4].  As of March 31, 2023, Short-term loan receivables of amount RMB228,596 were included in the prepaid expenses and other current assets balance, which represent the principal and interest to be collected on loans provided by the Group to third-party companies.

[5].  As of March 31, 2023, the decrease in incentive payables was mainly due to derecognition of long-aged payables to inactive members.
