BEIJING, Sept. 23, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 17 Education & Technology Group Inc. (NASDAQ: YQ) (“17EdTech” or the “Company”), a leading education technology company in China with an “in-school + after-school” integrated model, today announced its unaudited financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2021.

Second Quarter 2021 Highlights[1]

  • Net revenues were RMB670.9 million (US$103.9 million), which exceeded the high-end of the Company's guidance by RMB10.9 million and represented a year-over-year increase of 147.2% from RMB271.4 million in the second quarter of 2020.

  • Net revenues from online K-12 tutoring services were RMB662.0 million (US$102.5 million), representing a year-over-year increase of 163.9% from RMB250.8 million in the second quarter of 2020.

  • Gross billings of online K-12 tutoring services[2] (non-GAAP) were RMB769.5 million (US$119.2 million), representing a year-over-year increase of 121.9% from RMB346.8 million in the second quarter of 2020.

  • Paid course enrollments[3] were approximately 1,183 thousand, representing a year-over-year increase of 131.1% from approximately 512 thousand in the second quarter of 2020.

  • Gross margin was 63.0%, compared with 63.9% in the second quarter of 2020.

  • Net loss was RMB266.7 million (US$41.3 million), compared with net loss of RMB169.7 million in the second quarter of 2020.

  • Adjusted net loss[4] (non-GAAP), which excluded share-based compensation expenses of RMB48.5 million (US$7.5 million), was RMB218.2 million (US$33.8 million), compared with adjusted net loss (non-GAAP) of RMB149.8 million in the second quarter of 2020. Adjusted net loss (non-GAAP) as a percentage of net revenues was negative 32.5%, compared with negative 55.2% in the second quarter of 2020.

  • Average MAUs[5] of in-school applications for students was 16.5 million, representing a year-over-year decrease of 24.0% from 21.7 million in the second quarter of 2020. The year-over-year decrease in MAUs was partially attributable to the high level of MAUs in the second quarter of 2020, during which period the schools in China were temporarily closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the students were prompted to engage in more online education as they studied at home, and partially attributable to the implementation of “Notice on Strengthening Cell Phone Management in Primary and Secondary Schools” in certain provinces and cities, that limits cell phone use and prohibits assigning homework on cell phone.

_______________
[1] For a reconciliation of non-GAAP numbers, please see the table captioned “Reconciliations of non-GAAP measures to the most comparable GAAP measures” at the end of this press release.
[2] “Gross billings of online K-12 tutoring services” for a specific period refer to the sum of cash received from each enrollment of the Company’s online K-12 tutoring courses in such period inclusive of the applicable value added tax (“VAT”) and surcharges, net of the total amount of refunds in such period.
[3] “Paid course enrollments” for a certain period refer to the cumulative number of paid courses enrolled in and paid for by the Company’s students, including multiple paid courses enrolled in and paid for by the same student.
[4] Adjusted net loss represents net loss excluding share-based compensation expenses.
[5] Average MAUs for a certain period is calculated by dividing (i) the sum of monthly active users (MAUs) for each month of such period by (ii) the number of months in such period. MAU for each month is the number of users that logged in to the in-school applications in that month at least once. When calculating MAU, each account is treated as a distinct user.

The increase was primarily due to increases in compensation costs for instructors and tutors and teaching material costs as the Company provided services to more students, which increase was largely in line with the growth of the Company’s net revenues from online K-12 tutoring services during the same period.

Other Recent Developments

As previously disclosed, the Company's business, financial condition and corporate structure are expected to be materially affected in future periods by the changing regulatory environment. The overall magnitude of the impact remains uncertain at this time.

The Company provided updates on new regulations and regulatory development on July 26 and August 25, respectively, which are available at https://ir.17zuoye.com/. The Company encourages investors to refer to the website and original Chinese regulations for details.

Board Change

Mr. Dun Xiao, the Company’s co-founder and director, has resigned from his position as a director of the Company due to personal reasons, effective September 23, 2021.

Business Outlook

Due to the uncertainty related to the recent regulatory and operating environment, the Company decides not to issue guidance in the near term in order to give the management more flexibility to focus on the operations and transformation.

Conference Call Information

Due to the uncertainty related to the recent regulatory and operating environment, the Company will not hold a conference call to discuss the financial results for the second quarter of 2021.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

17EdTech’s management uses non-GAAP financial measures to gain an understanding of 17EdTech’s comparative operating performance and future prospects. Gross billings of online K-12 tutoring services and adjusted net loss are being used as non-GAAP measurements in evaluating the operating performance.

The Company defines gross billings of online K-12 tutoring services for a specific period as the sum of cash received from each enrollment of our online K-12 tutoring courses in such period inclusive of the applicable VAT and surcharges, net of the total amount of refunds in such period. The Company generally bills its students for the entire course fee at the time of sale of its courses and recognizes revenue proportionally as the classes are delivered over a period typically lasting four months or less. The Company also offers students a content playback service once each of the live tutoring class is delivered. In the content playback service, students have unlimited access to recorded audio-video content of the previous live tutoring classes for three years. The related revenue for playback is recognized proportionally over the playback period. The Company considers gross billings to be a valuable measure for monitoring the sales of our online courses and the business performance of its after-school tutoring services in general.

Adjusted net loss represents net loss excluding share-based compensation expenses and such adjustment has no impact on income tax.

Gross billings of online K-12 tutoring services and adjusted net loss are used by 17EdTech’s management in their financial and operating decision-making as a non-GAAP financial measure, because management believes it reflects 17EdTech’s ongoing business and operating performance in a manner that allows meaningful period-to-period comparisons. 17EdTech’s management believes that non-GAAP measures provide useful information to investors and others in understanding and evaluating 17EdTech’s operating performance in the same manner as management does, if they so choose. Specifically, 17EdTech believes the non-GAAP measures provide useful information to both management and investors by excluding certain charges that the Company believes are not indicative of its core operating results.

The non-GAAP financial measures have limitations. They do not include all items of income and expense that affect 17EdTech’s income from operations. Specifically, these non-GAAP financial measures are not prepared in accordance with GAAP, may not be comparable to non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies and, with respect to the non-GAAP financial measures that exclude certain items under GAAP, do not reflect any benefit that such items may confer to 17EdTech. Management compensates for these limitations by also considering 17EdTech’s financial results as determined in accordance with GAAP. The presentation of this additional information is not meant to be considered superior to, in isolation from or as a substitute for results prepared in accordance with US GAAP.

Exchange Rate Information

The Group's business is primarily conducted in China and all of the revenues are denominated in Renminbi (“RMB”). However, periodic reports made to shareholders will include current period amounts translated into U.S. dollars (“USD” or “US$”) using the exchange rate as of balance sheet date, for the convenience of the readers. Translations of balances in the consolidated balance sheets and the related consolidated statements of operations, comprehensive loss, change in shareholders' deficit and cash flows from RMB into USD as of and for the three months and the six months ended June 30, 2021 are solely for the convenience of the readers and were calculated at the rate of US$1.00=RMB6.4566 representing the noon buying rate set forth in the H.10 statistical release of the U.S. Federal Reserve Board on June 30, 2021. No representation is made that the RMB amounts could have been, or could be, converted, realized or settled into US$ at that rate on June 30, 2021, or at any other rate.
