Bilibili Inc. Announces Second Quarter 2020 Financial Results

Bilibili Inc.

SHANGHAI, China, Aug. 26, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bilibili Inc. (“Bilibili” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: BILI), a leading online entertainment platform for young generations in China, today announced its unaudited financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2020.

Second Quarter 2020 Highlights:

  • Total net revenues reached RMB2,617.6 million (US$370.5 million), a 70% increase from the same period in 2019.

  • Average monthly active users (MAUs) reached 171.6 million, and mobile MAUs reached 152.9 million, representing increases of 55% and 59%, respectively, from the same period in 2019.

  • Average daily active users (DAUs) reached 50.5 million, a 52% increase from the same period in 2019.

  • Average monthly paying users (MPUs1) reached 12.9 million, a 105% increase from the same period in 2019.

“Last year, we reaffirmed user growth as our key strategic focus and have been efficiently executing on that goal,” said Mr. Rui Chen, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Bilibili. “After our stellar first quarter, we continued to strengthen our growth momentum and invested in broadening recognition of the Bilibili brand name. Our confidence in this strategy is built on our self-fulfilling ecosystem. We believe the content pool we offer is deep and diverse enough to host a much wider user base, and our friendly and vibrant community can retain those newcomers. During the second quarter, we launched several successful marketing campaigns to raise brand awareness and improve brand perception, while actively expanding our content offerings, all of which led to our fast and healthy user growth. In the meantime, video-lization has become an inevitable trend as more people look to video as their primary way to consume and express content. Being uniquely positioned as the star platform in the online video space, we expect this trend to put us on the fast track as we continue to expand. Looking ahead, our sights are set on further executing our growth strategy, building an even more dynamic and robust community, and bringing additional value to all of our stakeholders.”

Mr. Sam Fan, Chief Financial Officer of Bilibili, said, “Our growth strategy continues to pay off as our platform becomes more attractive for users and business partners. During the second quarter, our revenues grew 70% year-over-year, reaching RMB2.6 billion, once again exceeding our guidance. We continued to convert our growing traffic to paying users. MPUs reached 12.9 million, more than double compared to the same period last year. With increased revenues and improved leverage, our gross margin rose to 23.1% in the second quarter from 16.4% in the same period last year. We are also pleased to have completed an offering convertible senior notes in an aggregate principal amount of US$800 million, at a lower interest rate than last year, despite the volatile market. We expect these funds to support our strategic growth initiatives as we continue to invest in our future, while maintaining high quality, sustainable growth.”

Second Quarter 2020 Financial Results

Total net revenues. Total net revenues were RMB2,617.6 million (US$370.5 million), representing an increase of 70% from the same period of 2019.

Mobile games. Revenues from mobile games were RMB1,248.0 million (US$176.6 million), representing an increase of 36% from the same period of 2019. The increase was primarily due to the successful newly launched mobile game Princess Connect, and the sustained stable performance of existing mobile games.

Value-added services (VAS) (formerly known as Live broadcasting and VAS).
Revenues from VAS were RMB825.3 million (US$116.8 million), representing an increase of 153% from the same period of 2019, mainly attributable to the Company’s enhanced monetization efforts, led by increases in the number of paying users for the Company’s premium membership program, live broadcasting services and other value-added services.

Advertising.
Revenues from advertising were RMB348.6 million (US$49.3 million), representing an increase of 108% from the same period of 2019. This increase was primarily attributable to the increasing number of advertisers, which was driven by further recognition of Bilibili’s brand name in China’s online advertising market.

E-commerce and others. Revenues from e-commerce and others were RMB195.8 million (US$27.7 million), representing an increase of 58% from the same period of 2019, primarily attributable to the increase in sales of products through the Company’s e-commerce platform.

Cost of revenues. Cost of revenues was RMB2,013.6 million (US$285.0 million), representing an increase of 57% compared to the same period of 2019.

Gross profit.
Gross profit was RMB604.0 million (US$85.5 million), representing an increase of 140% from the same period in 2019.

Total operating expenses.

Sales and marketing expenses. Sales and marketing expenses were RMB675.1 million (US$95.6 million), representing a 181% increase year-over-year. The increase was primarily attributable to increased channel and marketing expenses associated with Bilibili’s app and brand, as well as promotional expenses for the Company’s mobile games. The increase was also attributable to the increase in headcount in sales and marketing personnel.

General and administrative expenses. General and administrative expenses were RMB208.4 million (US$29.5 million), representing a 48% increase year-over-year. The increase was primarily due to increased headcount in general and administrative personnel, increased share-based compensation expenses and other general and administrative expenses.

Research and development expenses. Research and development expenses were RMB330.6 million (US$46.8 million), representing a 53% increase year-over-year. The increase was primarily due to increased headcount in research and development personnel and increased share-based compensation expenses.

Loss from operations. Loss from operations was RMB610.1 million (US$86.4 million), compared to RMB345.4 million in the same period of 2019.

Income tax expense.
Income tax expense was RMB11.9 million (US$1.7 million), compared to RMB12.7 million in the same period of 2019.

Net loss. Net loss was RMB570.9 million (US$80.8 million), compared to RMB315.0 million in the same period of 2019.

Adjusted net loss2. Adjusted net loss, which is a non-GAAP measure that excludes share-based compensation expenses and amortization expense related to intangible assets acquired through business acquisitions, was RMB475.7 million (US$67.3 million), compared to RMB256.1 million in the same period of 2019.

Basic and diluted EPS and adjusted basic and diluted EPS2. Basic and diluted net loss per share were RMB1.63 (US$0.23), compared to RMB0.96 in the same period of 2019. Adjusted basic and diluted net loss per share were RMB1.35 (US$0.19), compared to RMB0.78 in the same period of 2019.

Cash and cash equivalents, time deposits and short-term investments. As of June 30, 2020, the Company had cash and cash equivalents, time deposits, as well as short-term investments of RMB15.6 billion (US$2.2 billion), compared to RMB8.1 billion as of December 31, 2019.

Recent Development

In June 2020, the Company completed an offering of convertible senior notes (the “Notes”) due 2027 in an aggregate principal amount of US$800 million. The Company plans to use the net proceeds from the Notes for enriching its content offerings, investing in research and development, and other general corporate purposes.

Outlook


For the third quarter of 2020, the Company currently expects net revenues to be between RMB3.05 billion and RMB3.10 billion.

The above outlook is based on the current market conditions and reflects the Company’s preliminary estimates, which are all subject to various uncertainties, including those related to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

1 The paying users are calculated by number of users who paid for games, live broadcasting, premium membership, Bilibili Comic and Maoer, after eliminating duplicates of users paid for multiple services other than users of Maoer. The Company adds the number of paying users of Maoer toward its total paying users without eliminating duplicates.

2 Adjusted net loss and adjusted basic and diluted EPS are non-GAAP financial measures. For more information on non-GAAP financial measures, please see the section of “Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures” and the table captioned “Unaudited Reconciliations of GAAP and Non-GAAP Results” set forth at the end of this press release.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company uses non-GAAP measures, such as adjusted net loss, adjusted net loss per share and per ADS, basic and diluted, in evaluating its operating results and for financial and operational decision-making purposes. The Company believes that the non-GAAP financial measures help identify underlying trends in its business by excluding the impact of share-based compensation expenses and amortization expense related to intangible assets acquired through business acquisitions, which are non-cash charges. The Company believes that the non-GAAP financial measures provide useful information about the Company’s results of operations, enhance the overall understanding of the Company’s past performance and future prospects and allow for greater visibility with respect to key metrics used by the Company’s management in its financial and operational decision-making.

The non-GAAP financial measures are not defined under U.S. GAAP and are not presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools, and when assessing the Company’s operating performance, cash flows or liquidity, investors should not consider them in isolation, or as a substitute for net loss, cash flows provided by operating activities or other consolidated statements of operations and cash flows data prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

The Company mitigates these limitations by reconciling the non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable U.S. GAAP performance measures, all of which should be considered when evaluating the Company’s performance.

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