Operating Highlights for the Third Fiscal Quarter Ended February 28, 2022

  • The total number of schools and learning centers was 847 as of February 28, 2022, a decrease of 778 and 822 compared to 1,625 as of February 28, 2021 and 1,669 as of May 31, 2021, respectively. The total number of schools was 111 as of February 28, 2022.

Michael Yu, New Oriental's Executive Chairman, commented, "Although the Company is in a restructuring phase, we are pleased to see a promising trend in our remaining key businesses and a positive momentum across many of our new initiatives. In the first nine months of the current fiscal year, our remaining key business, the overseas test preparation and overseas study consulting business increased by 15% year-over-year. Our domestic test preparation business targeting adults and university students recorded a rapid growth of approximately 59% year-over-year. Simultaneously, we are actively exploring various new business opportunities, including non-academic tutoring, intelligent learning system and devices, study tour and research camp, educational materials and digitalized smart study solutions, as well as exam preparation courses designed for students with junior college diplomas to obtain bachelor's degrees. These new businesses are at their early stage but we firmly believe they present a bright future for the Company, and we are confident that by leveraging our brand recognition and educational resources accumulated over our operating history, these new businesses will start to contribute meaningful revenue from the next fiscal year."

Chenggang Zhou, New Oriental's Chief Executive Officer, added, "During the last two fiscal quarters, we have largely completed our restructuring of businesses and operations to comply with the government policies in China. The total number of schools and learning centers was reduced to 847 by end of this fiscal quarter. Looking ahead, we will continue our efforts in developing and revamping our online-merge-offline teaching platform, and keep leveraging our educational infrastructure and technology strength across our remaining key businesses and new initiatives to provide more advanced and diversified educational services to our customers of all ages. Our pure online education platform, Koolearn.com, continued to expand online educational offerings to adults and university students, and actively seek business opportunities in new areas, including livestream commerce business, institutional cooperation and new intelligent learning innovations."

Stephen Zhihui Yang, New Oriental's Executive President and Chief Financial Officer, commented, " We maintained a strong cash position throughout the whole restructuring process. By the end of this quarter, our cash and cash equivalents, term deposits and short-term investments totaled approximately US$4.4 billion. In the first half of this fiscal year, the Company incurred considerable costs due to the termination of lease agreements in relation to the closure of its learning centers and employee layoffs. We believe that the loss caused by the restructuring is temporary. We are confident in the sustainable profitability of all our remaining key businesses, as well as the growth and profit potential of our new initiatives. The Company's management team will continue to work together to seek profitable growth. Our continued commitment to high quality services and operational efficiency will generate more values to our customers, society and shareholders over the long term."

Net revenues from educational programs and services for the third fiscal quarter were US$506.4 million, representing a 54.1% decrease year-over-year. The decline was mainly due to the cessation of K-9 academic after-school tutoring services in order to comply with the government policies in China.

Non-GAAP operating costs and expenses for the quarter, which exclude share-based compensation expenses, were US$725.3 million, representing a 32.5% decrease year-over-year. The decrease was primarily due to the reduction of facilities and number of staff as a result of the restructuring in the last two fiscal quarters.

Total share-based compensation expenses, which were allocated to related operating costs and expenses, increased by 107.8% to US$30.0 million in the third fiscal quarter of 2022.

The decrease is primarily due to the cessation of K-9 academic after-school tutoring services in order to comply with the government policies in China.

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

To supplement New Oriental's consolidated financial results presented in accordance with GAAP, New Oriental uses the following measures defined as non-GAAP financial measures by the SEC: net income / (loss) excluding share-based compensation expenses and gain / (loss) from fair value change of long-term investments, operating income / (loss) excluding share-based compensation expenses, operating cost and expenses excluding share-based compensation expenses, general and administrative expenses excluding share-based compensation expenses, operating margin excluding share-based compensation expenses, and basic and diluted net income / (loss) per ADS and per share excluding share-based compensation expenses and gain / (loss) from fair value change of long-term investments. 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 and presented in accordance with GAAP. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the tables captioned "Reconciliations of non-GAAP measures to the most comparable GAAP measures" set forth at the end of this release.

New Oriental believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding its performance and liquidity by excluding share-based compensation expenses and gain / (loss) from fair value change of long-term investments that may not be indicative of its operating performance from a cash perspective. New Oriental believes that both management and investors benefit from referring to these non-GAAP financial measures in assessing its performance and when planning and forecasting future periods. These non-GAAP financial measures also facilitate management's internal comparisons to New Oriental's historical performance and liquidity. New Oriental believes these non-GAAP financial measures are useful to investors in allowing for greater transparency with respect to supplemental information used by management in its financial and operational decision making. A limitation of using these non-GAAP measures is that they exclude share-based compensation expenses and gain / (loss) from fair value change of long-term investments that has been and will continue to be for the foreseeable future a significant recurring expense in our business. Management compensates for these limitations by providing specific information regarding the GAAP amounts excluded from each non-GAAP measure. The accompanying tables have more details on the reconciliations between GAAP financial measures that are most directly comparable to non-GAAP financial measures.
