Mr. Dagang Feng, co-chairman and chief executive officer of 36Kr, commented, “In the second quarter, in light of the enduring adverse impact of the COVID-19 to the macro-economy, we have been actively adjusting our business operations to adapt to the new normal and seeking new opportunities. Content production and distribution capabilities remain as our key strengths and continue to generate strong traffic on our platform, with an average monthly PV of 499.2 million for the twelve-month period ended June 30, 2020, up 43.6% year-over-year. Notably, although the traffic of our livestreaming and newly offered short-video content was not included in the PV metric, these new content categories have drawn considerable attention. As short-form video and livestreaming attract surging popularity, we are pivoting our efforts toward these new media forms in our content production to accommodate the audience’s evolving preference. With massive and diverse high-quality content from both inhouse and third-party providers, we are consolidating our leadership as an influential New Economy-focused content platform.

“We have taken creative approaches such as livestreaming marketing events to enhance commercial opportunities for New Economy participants, helping them get more exposures, realize efficient client acquisition, and establish collaborative business connections under current market conditions. It is worth mentioning that our service solutions, such as online marketing and virtual roadshows, have also been well accepted by local governments. We will continue to expand and deepen our collaboration with clients across all types of New Economy participants in a broader range of industries. Facing the new normal brought by the COVID-19, we will leverage our brand influence, network resources, service experience, and content capabilities, to actively explore and identify clients’ evolving demands, and address their needs with our efficient solutions. We remain dedicated to serving New Economy participants, helping them recover and thrive in the new market environment, while delivering long-term value to our shareholders,” Mr. Feng concluded.

Ms. Jihong Liang, director, and chief financial officer of 36Kr, stated, “Compared with the same period of last year, our soft topline performance in the second quarter of 2020 reflects the lingering and profound impact from the COVID-19 pandemic, as clients delayed their marketing programs and promotional activities due to market uncertainties. Under the challenging macroeconomic conditions, we deployed a more stringent cash management policy such as requiring prepayment for certain projects and a strict selection of high-quality clients to maintain healthy cash flows. On the other hand, we have made prudent investments in technologies to further optimize user experience and prepare for the changing market environment, which is crucial to our future growth. Despite the difficulties, it is encouraging that in the second quarter of 2020, we achieved positive operating cash flow for the first time, demonstrating our solid operation and sustainable business. We remain optimistic for a brighter prospect of the New Economy and are determined to grow along with this promising community.”

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.
