BEIJING, June 2, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Gridsum Holding Inc. ("Gridsum" or the "Company") (NASDAQ:GSUM), a leading provider of cloud-based big-data analytics and artificial intelligence ("AI") solutions in China, today reported its unaudited financial results for the fourth quarter and full year ended December 31, 2019.

Fourth Quarter Highlights

  • Net revenues increased 30% to RMB138.0 million (US$19.8 million), from RMB106.0 million in the comparable period of 2018.
  • Gross profit increased 76% to RMB119.8 million (US$17.2 million), from RMB67.9 million in the comparable period of 2018.
  • Net loss attributable to Gridsum's ordinary shareholders was RMB126.3 million (US$18.1 million), compared with RMB132.7 million in the same period of 2018.

Fourth Quarter 2019 Financial Results

REVENUES: Net revenues increased 27% to RMB138.0 million (US$19.8 million) from RMB106.0 million in the comparable period of 2018.

Enterprise revenues decreased 13% to RMB86.2 million (US$12.4 million) from RMB99.3 million in the comparable period of 2018, primarily due to the Company's ongoing strategic restructuring towards a focus on higher margin enterprise and IIoT solution services. Enterprise revenues were also impacted by a softening Chinese macroeconomic environment and a decrease in consumer demand.

E-Government and other revenues increased 501% to RMB53.8 million (US$7.7 million) from RMB9.0 million in the comparable period of 2018. The significant increase was primarily due to the rapid growth of the Company's IIoT business which accounted for a low double-digit percentage of total revenues in the quarter.

COST OF REVENUES: Cost of revenues decreased 52% to RMB18.2 million (US$2.6 million), compared with RMB38.1 million in the comparable period of 2018.

GROSS PROFIT AND GROSS MARGIN: Gross profit increased 76% to RMB119.8million (US$17.2 million) from RMB67.9 million in the comparable period of 2018. Gross margin improved to 86.8% from 64.1%, reflecting the shift taking place in the Company's revenue mix towards higher margin enterprise and IIoT solution services.

OPERATING EXPENSES: Total operating expenses increased 5% to RMB261.2 million (US$37.5 million) from RMB249.1 million in the comparable period of 2018.

  • Sales and marketing expenses decreased 18% to RMB36.4 million (US$5.2 million) from RMB44.6 million in the comparable period of 2018. The decrease was primarily due to a RMB2.1 million decrease in marketing and promotional expenses, a RMB2.1 million decrease in entertainment expenses, and a RMB1.2 million decrease in meeting related expenses.
  • Research and development expenses decreased 57% to RMB62.8 million (US$9.0 million) from RMB146.1 million in the comparable period of 2018. The decrease primarily reflects the Company moving past the peak of front-end investment into its industrial AI and IIoT platforms.
  • General and administrative expenses increased 177% to RMB162.0 million (US$23.3 million) from RMB58.4 million in the comparable period of 2018. The increase was primarily due to a RMB119.3 million provision for bad debt that reflects both the restructuring of the Company's business towards higher margin enterprise and IIoT solution services as well as the adverse impact on the Chinese economy created by the COVID-19 outbreak and other factors.

LOSS FROM OPERATIONS: Loss from operations was RMB141.4 million (US$20.3 million), compared with RMB181.2 million in the comparable period of 2018.

NET LOSS ATTRIBUTABLE TO GRIDSUM'S ORDINARY SHAREHOLDERS: Net loss attributable to Gridsum's ordinary shareholders was RMB126.3 million (US$18.1 million), compared with RMB132.7 million in the comparable period of 2018.

EBITDA: Loss before interest, income tax, depreciation and amortization was RMB142.1 million (US$20.4 million), compared with RMB128.8million in the comparable period of 2018.

ADJUSTED EBITDA: Adjusted loss before interest, income tax, depreciation and amortization, which excludes share-based compensation expenses, was RMB131.9 million (US$18.9 million), compared with RMB117.5 million in the comparable period of 2018.

NON-GAAP NET LOSS PER ADS ATTRIBUTABLE TO GRIDSUM'S ORDINARY SHAREHOLDERS: Non-GAAP net loss per ADS attributable to Gridsum's ordinary shareholders was RMB3.36 (US$0.48), compared with RMB3.94 in the comparable period of 2018.

Each ADS represents one Class B ordinary share. For purposes of determining net loss per ADS attributable to Gridsum's ordinary shareholders, the weighted average number of ordinary shares for the fourth quarter of 2019 was 34,543,432. As of December 31, 2019, the total number of ordinary shares outstanding was 34,576,351.

Full Year 2019 Financial Results

Enterprise revenues decreased 33% to RMB258.9 million (US$37.2 million) from RMB387.6 million in 2018, primarily due to the Company's ongoing strategic restructuring towards a focus on higher margin enterprise and IIoT solution services. Enterprise revenues were also impacted by a softening Chinese macroeconomic environment and a decrease in consumer demand.

E-Government and other revenues increased 35%, to RMB71.8 million (US$10.3 million), from RMB53.1 million in 2018, primarily due to the rapid growth in the Company's IIoT business which accounted for a low double-digit percentage of total revenues during the year.

COST OF REVENUES: Cost of revenues decreased 23% to RMB77.4 million (US$11.1 million) from RMB100.9 million in the comparable period of 2018.

GROSS PROFIT AND GROSS MARGIN: Gross profit decreased 25% to RMB249.2 million (US$35.8 million) from RMB330.4 million in 2018. Gross margin was 76.3%, essentially flat when compared with 2018. The Company believes gross profit and gross margin will begin to improve in 2020 as its sales mix continues to shift towards higher margin enterprise and IIoT solution services which are expected to increasingly contribute a greater percentage of revenue.

OPERATING EXPENSES: Total operating expenses declined 11%, to RMB784.5 million (US$112.7 million) from RMB882.1 million in 2018.

  • Sales and marketing expenses decreased13% to RMB144.4 million (US$20.7 million) from RMB166.2 million in 2018. The decrease was primarily due to a RMB12.5 million decrease in marketing and promotional expenses and a RMB3.3 million decrease in personnel costs.
  • Research and development expenses decreased 40% to RMB320.4 million (US$46.0 million) from RMB533.6 million in 2018. The decrease primarily reflects a slowdown in spending as the Company moves past the peak of its front-end investments in its industrial AI and IIoT platforms.
  • General and administrative expenses increased 75% to RMB319.7 million (US$45.9 million) from RMB182.3 million in 2018. The increase was primarily due to a RMB137.9 million provision for bad debt that reflects the adverse impact on the Chinese economy created by the COVID-19 outbreak.

Full Year 2019 Review and Company Strategic Restructuring

Throughout 2019, Gridsum strategically restructured its business to towards a solutions and product mix that is expected to generate higher margins, higher returns, higher growth, increased operational efficiency and productivity, and ultimately result in improved operational and financial results going forward.

Key components of this process include the restructuring of the product development cycle, sales and service functions, organizational and departmental KPIs, and sales teams as well as the Company's product and client focus.

In addition, demand for the Company's products and solutions throughout 2019 was adversely impacted by a softening Chinese macroeconomic environment and a decrease in consumer demand. Gridsum's marketing-oriented solutions were particularly impacted and resulted in a deterioration in margins and working capital terms with clients across a variety of sectors. These challenges were most acute for the Company's search-related businesses, including the SEM Dissector and SEO Dissector solutions.

The combination of these factors has constrained the Company's financial position as a result. The availability of cash and other financial resources have declined, requiring management to carefully manage working capital and adjust the cost and revenue mix, among others, to maintain liquidity and continue business operations. This compelled the Company to strategically accelerate its transition towards higher margin enterprise and IIoT solution services and reduce its exposure to search-related businesses which is typically characterized by heavy working capital requirements and sub-optimal receivable terms. These dynamics deteriorated further during the year to the extent that the Company may continue to reduce its exposure to search-related businesses in 2020 depending on market conditions and its financial position, and possibly consider a full exit.

The Company's financial performance in 2019 reflects the impact of its strategic restructuring, tightening operating conditions, and cashflow and liquidity pressure. The softening Chinese economy and a decrease in consumer demand also adversely impacted the Company's results for the year. As a result, the Company experienced only a small increase in overall customer numbers from 539 in 2018 to 547 in 2019, and a decline in average customer contribution from RMB0.8 million in 2018 to RMB0.6 million in 2019. This led to the 24% decline in net revenues from RMB431.2 million in 2018 to RMB326.6 million in 2019. Additionally, the Company's headcount decreased from 1,192 employees as of December 31, 2018 to 929 employees as of December 31, 2020, to improve efficiencies.

These challenging operating conditions have only been exacerbated by the outbreak of COVID-19 in early 2020.The Company expects the combined effects from its strategic restructuring and the outbreak of COVID-19 to continue adversely impacting its financial and operational results throughout 2020.

COVID-19

Starting in January 2020, the Chinese government initiated a variety of emergency measures to contain the spread of COVID-19 through the lockdown of cities, road and business closures, travel restrictions and emergency quarantines, among others. Businesses and individuals have reduced risk by cutting travel, cancelling meetings and events, and implementing work-at-home policies. All of these efforts caused significant disruption to both the Chinese and global economies, and affected normal business operations across many sectors and countries. As a result, business confidence, consumer sentiment and economic activity have been shaken. Broader macroeconomic implications, including reduced levels of economic growth and possibly a global recession, will likely continue well after the spread of infection is contained.

Substantially all of Gridsum's operations and revenues are generated in China. From January to February 2020, the Company temporarily closed all of its corporate offices and requested all employees to work remotely. This compelled Gridsum and certain customers and other stakeholders to implement temporary adjustments to its operations that include facilitating employees to work from home and adopt remote working tools.

Following the outbreak of COVID-19, Gridsum experienced an immediate impact on its operations, including a significant slowdown in the customer sales origination and renewal cycle, increased timeframes to accomplish key tasks, and incremental challenges in collecting accounts receivable in a timely manner. In particular, a significant number of Gridsum's marketing automation customers reduced their marketing budgets, which adversely impacted the Company's marketing-related solutions revenue. This caused a materially negative impact on the Company's net revenues and liquidity position. Management expects these and other negative effects to continue to adversely affect the Company's business operations, results of operation and financial position through 2020 and potentially beyond. It is not possible at this time to estimate the impact that COVID-19 will have on the business, as the impact will depend on future developments, which are highly uncertain and cannot be predicted.

Recent Developments

On January 3, 2020, the Board of Directors of Gridsum Holding Inc. received a letter from FutureX Capital Limited regarding the withdrawal of its preliminary non-binding proposal dated May 8, 2018 to acquire all outstanding shares of the Company, effective as of January 3, 2020.

On May 1, 2020, the Board of Directors of Gridsum Holding Inc. received a revised non-binding proposal from Guosheng Qi, Chairman of the Board and the Chief Executive Officer of the Company, Guofa Yu, a director and the Chief Operating Officer of the Company, their respective affiliated entities, Beta Dynamic Limited, Shenzhen Qianhai Banyan Capital Investment & Management Co., Ltd and Hangzhou Yutao Capital Co., Ltd, to acquire all of the outstanding shares of the Company that are not already owned by them in a going private transaction for US$2.00 in cash per American depositary share, each representing one Class B ordinary share of the Company, or US$2.00 in cash per ordinary share.

The Special Committee of the Board, which was formed to consider the original proposal and other alternative transactions, is evaluating the revised proposal with the assistance of its financial and legal advisors. The Board and the Special Committee caution the Company's shareholders and others considering trading in the Company's securities that no decision has been made by the Special Committee or the Board with respect to the Company's response to the revised proposal. There can be no assurance that any definitive offer will be made, that any agreement will be executed, or that this or any other transaction will be approved or consummated.

Exchange Rate

This announcement contains translations of certain RMB amounts into U.S. Dollars ("US$") at specified rates solely for the convenience of the reader. Unless otherwise stated, all translations from RMB to US$ were made at the rate of RMB6.9618 to US$1.00, the noon buying rate in effect on December 31, 2019 in the H.10 statistical release of the Federal Reserve Board. The Company makes no representation that the RMB or US$ amounts referred could be converted into US$ or RMB, as the case may be, at any particular rate or at all.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In evaluating the Company's business, the Company considers and uses the following non-GAAP financial measures as supplemental measures to review and assess the Company's operating performance: non-GAAP net loss attributable to Gridsum's ordinary shareholders, non-GAAP net loss per share attributable to Gridsum's ordinary shareholders, non-GAAP net loss per ADS attributable to Gridsum's ordinary shareholders, EBITDA and adjusted EBITDA. The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation or as a substitute for the financial information prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP. Non-GAAP net loss attributable to Gridsum's ordinary shareholders is net loss attributable to Gridsum's ordinary shareholders before share-based compensation, non-GAAP net loss per share attributable to Gridsum's ordinary shareholders is the per share equivalent and non-GAAP net loss per ADS attributable to Gridsum's ordinary shareholders is the per ADS equivalent, EBITDA is net loss before interest income and expenses, income tax expenses and depreciation expenses, and adjusted EBITDA is EBITDA before share-based compensation.

The Company presents these non-GAAP financial measures because they are used by the Company's management to evaluate the Company's operating performance and formulate the Company's business plans. These non-GAAP financial measures enable the Company's management to assess the Company's operating results without considering the impact of non-cash charges, including depreciation expenses and share-based compensation, and without considering the impact of non-operating items such as interest income and expenses and income tax expenses. The Company also believes that the use of these non-GAAP measures facilitates investors' assessment of the Company's 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 the Company's operations. Interest income and expenses, income tax expenses, depreciation expenses and share-based compensation have been and may continue to be incurred in the Company's business and are not reflected in the presentation of adjusted EBITDA. Further, these non-GAAP financial measures may differ from the non-GAAP financial measures used by other companies, including Gridsum's peer companies, so their utility for comparison purposes may be limited.

The Company compensates for these limitations by reconciling the Company's non-GAAP financial measures to the most directly comparable U.S. GAAP financial measures, which should be considered when evaluating the Company's performance. Investors are encouraged to review the Company's financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure. A reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their closest U.S. GAAP financial measures appears at the end of this release.
