Mr. Dagang Feng, co-chairman and chief executive officer of 36Kr, commented, “We concluded 2019 with strong fourth quarter results and encouraging progress on multiple fronts. Our content capabilities maintained as our key strength and robust traffic driver. Our average monthly PV reached a new high in 2019 with 425.4 million, up 116.8% year over year. This impressive PV metric reflected the broadened geographic and topical coverage of our attractive content, expanded user base and efficient distribution channels. Along with our growing influence in the New Economy community, all three of our revenue streams demonstrated remarkable performances in the fourth quarter, contributing to total revenue growth of 119.2% year over year. Specifically, our enterprise value-added services achieved a significant revenue growth and became our largest revenue contributor, as we strategically developed ourselves into a service-focused enabler for New Economy participants.

“In response to the recent coronavirus outbreak and its ensuing societal impact, 36Kr, as one of the most influential New Economy-focused content providers in China, has been publishing a series of special reports objectively relating the epidemic situation, drawing public attention to the individuals and companies affected and speaking up for those in need. In addition, we swiftly launched a special enterprise service program by mobilizing our connections and resources in the New Economy space for companies striving for survival. This special program aims to introduce collaborative opportunities, financing resources, supportive policies, proficient enterprise services, and enhanced media exposure to support companies that were seriously impacted by the difficult situation. We believe in the resilience of New Economy and are determined to withstand the challenges together with our partners,” Mr. Feng concluded.

Ms. Jihong Liang, director and chief financial officer of 36Kr, stated, “Our solid fourth quarter and full-year 2019 topline performance demonstrated the increasing demands for our diverse and high-quality services from New Economy participants. As we broaden our comprehensive offerings to an expanded customer base, we are achieving economies of scale and enhanced profitability. In the fourth quarter and full-year 2019, we delivered non-GAAP adjusted net income of RMB68.3 million and RMB65.3 million, up 69.6% and 43.0%, respectively, on a year-over-year basis. We will continue to fortify our competitive advantages in both content creation and distribution, while constantly expanding our monetization channels, to capture the growth opportunities in the vibrant New Economy.”

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In evaluating its business, the Company considers and uses two non-GAAP measures, adjusted net income/(loss) and adjusted EBITDA, as supplemental measures to review and assess its operating performance. The presentation of these two non-GAAP financial measures 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 presents these non-GAAP financial measures because they are used by the Company’s management to evaluate its operating performance and formulate business plans. The Company also believes that the use of these non-GAAP measures facilitates investors' assessment of its operating performance.

These non-GAAP financial measures are not defined under U.S. GAAP and are not presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools. One of the key limitations of using these non-GAAP financial measures is that they do not reflect all items of income and expense that affect our operations. Further, these non-GAAP measures may differ from the non-GAAP information used by other companies, including peer companies, and therefore their comparability may be limited.

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

Adjusted net income/(loss) represents net income/(loss) excluding share-based compensation.

Adjusted EBITDA represents adjusted net income/(loss) before interest income, interest expenses, income tax expense/(credit), depreciation of property and equipment and amortization of intangible assets.

For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the table captioned “Reconciliations of GAAP and non-GAAP results” set forth at the end of this press release.
