Mr. Zhiwei Xu, Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of Jowell Global Ltd., commented: “We are delighted to have finished the year of 2020 with strong financial and operational results. The growth in the number of VIP members and merchants on our platform continued to accelerate in 2020, with an increase of26.28% and 5.33% year over year. We believe we are industry frontrunners in turning data insight into valuable business intelligence in China. In April 2021, the Company officially launched its “Juhao Best Choice” community group-buying store initiative to also grasp the business growth opportunities presented by China’s huge offline retail market. Looking ahead, we will continue to be keenly focused on innovating and developing new solutions for our e-commerce platform and offline services to cater to the diversified needs of a broader customer base, aiming to further expand our market share in China.”

Ms. Mei Cai, Chief Financial Officer, further commented: “We continued to deliver accelerated topline growth in the fiscal year 2020, driven by strong growth from the sales of our health and nutritional supplements products. With the increased health awareness due to the outbreak of COVID-19, consumers have shown much more interest in purchasing and consuming our health and nutritional supplement products during the pandemic. Furthermore, due to government-imposed stay home orders in early 2020 and the fear of infection during the outbreak of COVID-19, a significant portion of the consumers’ demands fulfilled through traditional brick and mortar stores before the pandemic were replaced by online purchases through online stores. This dramatic change in consumer’s behavior benefits us as an online retailer and led to increase in sales in the health and nutritional supplements as well as our household products. Our revenue and net income posted significant increase of 56.81% and 180.47% on a year-over-year basis, demonstrating enhanced profitability. The increase in quantity sold of health and nutritional supplements products and the spread of COVID-19 that had raised health related concerns and shifted consumer spending from offline to online have driven these successes and we are committed to continuing to offer value to customers, ultimately generating sustainable return for our shareholders.”

Cosmetic products.
Compared to the year ended December 31, 2019, sales of cosmetic products increased slightly by about $0.23 or 1.25% in 2020. The slight increase in cosmetic products revenue is primarily due to 2.45% increase in weighted average unit price of the products sold and partially offset by slight decrease of 1.18% in the quantity of products sold.

Health and nutritional supplements. Revenue generated from health and nutritional supplements revenue stream increased by about $29.70 million or 131.00% in 2020, comparing to 2019. The significant increase is mainly attributable to the increase in quantity sold of 119.00%. Additionally, the weighted average selling price of products sold in this revenue stream also increased by about 5.47% in 2020 comparing to 2019.

Household products. Comparing to 2019, our household products revenue increased by about $5.10 million or 24.72% in 2020. The increase is primarily attributable to 50.90% increase in weighted average unit price for products sold and is partially offset by 17.40% decrease in quantity sold in 2020. The increase in weighted average unit price for products sold and decrease in quantity of products sold comparing the two periods are mainly due to we sold more higher unit price products such as Longrich energy pot and Longrich water purifier in 2020 than in 2019.

Operating Expenses

Operating expenses primarily consist of cost of sales, fulfilment expenses, marketing expenses and general and administrative expenses. Our total operating expenses increased by about $31.70 million or 52.77% from $60.07 million in 2019 to $91.77 million in 2020. All categories of our operating expenses increased in 2020 comparing to 2019. The increase is attributable to the increase in sales and expansion of our operations.

Cost of sales. Compared to 2019, cost of sales of cosmetic products increased by about $0.83 million or 5.20% from $17.10 million in 2019 to about $17.90 million in 2020. The increase is due to an increase in the average unit cost of $0.10 or 6.40%. The increase is partially offset by decrease of 0.13 million units or 1.18% in quantity sold in 2020 comparing to 2019. The increase in average unit cost is mainly due to the change in the mix of cosmetic products sold comparing the two periods. In 2020, we sold more high-end products with higher unit cost, including products under our premium brand, Yasi, comparing to 2019.

The cost of sales of health and nutritional supplements increased by about $25.80 million or 122.30% from $21.10 million in 2019 to $46.80 million in 2020. The increase is primarily attributable to increase in quantity of products sold.

The cost of sales of household products increased by about $3.70 million or 20.50% from $18.00 million in 2019 to $21.70 million in 2020. The increase is due to the increase of weighted average unit cost of $0.65 per unit or 45.84% comparing the two years.

Fulfillment expenses. Fulfillment expenses increased by $0.15 million or 7.00% in 2020 compared to 2019. The increase in our fulfillment expenses is primarily attributable to the increase in outbound freight costs resulting from the increased sales.

Marketing expenses. Marketing expenses increased by $0.31 million or 42.20% in 2020 compared to 2019. The increase in marketing expenses is consistent with the increase in sales and was primarily attributable to increase in payroll related expenses as we expanded our business in 2020.

General and administrative expenses. Compared to the 2019, general and administrative expenses increased by $0.92 million or 80.10% in 2020. The increase was primarily attributable to an increase in expenses related to preparation for the Nasdaq listing and initial public offering of approximately $0.90 million in fiscal year 2020.

Income from operations. Incomes from operations in the years ended December 31, 2020 and 2019 were $5.11 million and $1.70 million, respectively. The increase in income from operations is mainly due to the increase in our revenue comparing the two periods. Income from operations accounted for 5.27% and 2.75% of revenue in 2020 and 2019, respectively. The slight increase in income from operations to revenue ratio is mainly attributable to slight decrease in cost of sales and fulfilment expenses as a percentage to revenue.

Income before income taxes. Our income before income taxes was $5.12 million for 2020, an increase of $3.41 million or 199.42% from $1.71 million in 2019. The increase was primarily attributable to the increase in our revenue comparing the two years and slight decrease in cost of sales and fulfillment expenses as a percentages to revenue.

Net Income. Net income was $3.59 million in 2020, compared to $1.28 million in the same period of 2019.

Basic and diluted EPS. Basic and diluted earnings per share were $0.17 in 2020, compared to $0.06 in the same period of 2019.
