      LIZHI INC. Reports Fourth Quarter and Fiscal Year 2020 Unaudited Financial Results

      GUANGZHOU, China, March 09, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LIZHI INC. (“LIZHI” or the “Company” or “We”) (NASDAQ: LIZI), a leading online UGC1 audio community and interactive audio entertainment platform in China, today announced its unaudited financial results for the fourth quarter and fiscal year ended December 31, 2020. Fourth Quarter 2020 Financial and Operational Highlights Net revenues were RMB420.3 million (US$64.4 million) in the fourth quarter of 2020, representing a 15% increase from RMB365.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2019, and compared to RMB361.5 million in the previous quarter.Average total mobile MAUs2 in the fourth quarter of 2020 reached 58.4 million, compared to 51.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2019 and 56.2 million in the previous quarter.Average total monthly paying users3 in the fourth quarter of 2020 reached 422.4 thousand, compared to 434.1 thousand in the fourth quarter of 2019 and 448.3 thousand in the previous quarter. Fiscal Year 2020 Financial and Operational Highlights Net revenues were RMB1,502.9 million (US$230.3 million) in the fiscal year of 2020, representing a 27% increase from RMB1,180.6 million in the prior year.Average total mobile MAUs in the fiscal year of 2020 reached 56.2 million, compared to 45.7 million in the prior year.Average total monthly paying users in the fiscal year of 2020 reached 446.1 thousand, compared to 351.7 thousand in the prior year. “We are pleased to see the strong growth momentum continued in the fourth quarter of 2020, as our fourth quarter revenue of RMB420.3 million was up 15% year-over-year and 16% sequentially, exceeding the upper end of our guidance range,” said Mr. Jinnan (Marco) Lai, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of LIZHI. “During the quarter, our vibrant audio ecosystem consisting of audio-based social networks, podcast content portfolios and audio communities has delivered meaningful performance results, fueled by our expansion in overseas market and further enhancement of our platform’s overall technological capabilities. Our audio-based social networking app, Tiya App, ranked among the top four social networking apps in the U.S. in November 2020 shortly after its launch in the U.S. market in October 2020 according to the ranking published by App Annie. We believe the launch of Tiya App will strengthen the audio-based social networking product offering of our ecosystem. Meanwhile, we continued fortifying and diversifying our content offerings and saw approximately 20 million new audio contents added to our online audio platform in the fourth quarter of 2020. In January 2021, in an effort to bolster our content strategy, we launched a new mobile app under the LIZHI brand called ‘LIZHI Podcast’ (LIZHI BOKE in Chinese), aiming to engage users with curated podcast content and appeal to a wider audience base. In addition, by leveraging our extensive content library, experience in audio-centric user communities and industry-leading technologies, we tapped into the in-car audio space and are now collaborating with leading automobile manufacturers in China, including Xpeng Motors, GAC AION New Energy Automobile and GAC Motor, as well as automobile intelligent platforms, including BYD DiLink, a network-linked automobiles intelligent system launched by BYD, and Huawei Mobile Services for Car, a smart in-car cloud service solution built by Huawei Terminal Cloud Services. We believe promoting user engagement and interactions is key to fostering an immersive audio-centric UGC community. In the fourth quarter of 2020, we achieved a new record high of 3.3 billion average monthly total interactions4, highlighted by a 13% year-over-year increase in average total mobile MAUs. In 2021, we expect to continue our pursuit of global strategy of expanding our audio-based social networks, enhancing our content offering and strengthening our community with advanced technologies,” concluded Mr. Lai. ___________________________ 1 Refers to user-generated content.2 Refers to the average monthly number of active users across our platforms and apps in a given period, calculated by dividing (i) the sum of mobile active users for each month of such period, by (ii) the number of months in the same period. 3 Refers to the average monthly number of paying user in a given period, calculated by dividing (i) the total number of paying users in each month of such period by (ii) the number of months in the same period. 4 Refers to the sum of monthly average number of comments, private messages, posts, likes and multi-users on-air dialogues, to the extent such metrics are applicable in a given period. Ms. Chengfang Lu, Acting Chief Financial Officer of LIZHI, commented, “Our better-than-expected performance in the fourth quarter is illustrated by a full-year revenue growth of 27%, underscoring our growth trajectory despite the lingering impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Also, thanks to our efforts to improve operating efficiency coupled with our strategy to retain and engage users, our profitability with margin expansion has increased across the board in the fourth quarter, highlighted by a year-over-year increase in gross margin of 1,070 basis points and a year-over-year decrease in net loss by 80%. We continued to achieve non-GAAP net income5 in the fourth quarter of 2020. With 2021 well underway, we endeavor to deliver long-term value to our shareholders.” Fourth Quarter 2020 Unaudited Financial Results Net revenues were RMB420.3 million (US$64.4 million) in the fourth quarter of 2020, representing an increase of 15% from RMB365.3 million in the fourth quarter of 2019, and an increase of 16% from RMB361.5 million in the previous quarter. Since various measures that the Chinese government implemented to constrain the COVID-19 outbreak have been relaxed, many aspects of daily life in China gradually returned to normal routine. The extent to which the COVID-19 impacts on the Company's operations beyond the fourth quarter of 2020 will depend on future developments of the pandemic in China and across the globe, which are subject to changes and substantial uncertainty and therefore cannot be predicted. Audio entertainment revenues reached RMB414.7 million (US$63.6 million) in the fourth quarter of 2020, representing an increase of 15% from RMB360.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2019 and an increase of 17% from RMB355.8 million in the third quarter of 2020. The year-over-year and quarter-over-quarter increases were mainly due to an increase in the per capita user spending on our interactive audio social entertainment products primarily driven by our 2020 Annual Voice Gala held in the fourth quarter of 2020. Podcast, advertising and other revenues were RMB5.5 million (US$0.8 million) in the fourth quarter of 2020, representing an increase of 12% from RMB4.9 million in the fourth quarter of 2019, and a 2% decrease from RMB5.7 million in the third quarter of 2020, respectively. The year-over-year increase was primarily attributable to the increase in the number of advertisers. The quarter-over-quarter decrease was mainly attributable to a decrease in our podcast revenue. Cost of revenues was RMB301.3 million (US$46.2 million) in the fourth quarter of 2020, compared to RMB300.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2019 and representing an increase of 11% quarter-over-quarter. The year-over-year increase was primarily due to the increase of salary and welfare benefits, payment handling costs and bandwidth costs as the Company’s business grew, as well as the recognition of share-based compensation expenses upon and after the Company’s initial public offering (“IPO”). This was partially offset by a decrease in the revenue sharing fees because the incentive program for content creators we launched in the third quarter of 2019 has been scaled down since February 2020. The quarter-over-quarter increase was mainly because of the increase in revenue sharing fees to our content creators, payment handling costs and the bandwidth costs which were generally in line with the growth of the Company’s business. Gross profit was RMB119.0 million (US$18.2 million) in the fourth quarter of 2020, representing an increase of 85% from RMB64.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2019 and an increase of 31% from RMB90.6 million in the third quarter of 2020. Non-GAAP gross profit6 was RMB122.6 million (US$18.8 million) in the fourth quarter of 2020, representing an increase of 90% from RMB64.4 million in the fourth quarter of 2019 and an increase of 33% from RMB91.9 million in the third quarter of 2020. ___________________________ 5 Non-GAAP net loss/income is a non-GAAP financial measure, which is defined as net loss/income excluding share-based compensation expenses.

The year-over-year increase was mainly due to our increasing number of research and development employees, as well as the share-based compensation expenses recognized upon and after our IPO in January 2020. The quarter-over-quarter increase was mainly attributable to a rise in expenses related to professional services provided by third parties. Selling and marketing expenses were RMB48.7 million (US$7.5 million) in the fourth quarter of 2020, representing an increase of 69% from RMB28.8 million in the fourth quarter of 2019 and an increase of 79% from RMB27.1 million in the third quarter of 2020. The increases were primarily due to the increased promotion and marketing expenses related to our branding and promotion activities for our products and brand name in the fourth quarter of 2020. General and administrative expenses were RMB20.3 million (US$3.1 million) in the fourth quarter of 2020, representing an increase of 35% from RMB15.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2019 and an increase of 17% from RMB17.4 million in the third quarter of 2020.

Audio entertainment revenues reached RMB1,481.1 million (US$227.0 million) in the fiscal year 2020, representing an increase of 27% from RMB1,167.9 million in the prior year.

For more information, please visit: http://ir.lizhi.fm. Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures The unaudited condensed consolidated financial information is prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”). LIZHI uses non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating loss/income, non-GAAP net loss/income, non-GAAP net loss/income attributable to LIZHI INC.'s ordinary shareholders and non-GAAP basic and diluted net loss/income per ADS, which are non-GAAP financial measures. Non-GAAP gross profit is gross profit excluding share-based compensation expenses. Non-GAAP gross margin is non-GAAP gross profit as a percentage of net revenues. Non-GAAP operating loss/income is operating loss/income excluding share-based compensation expenses. Non-GAAP net loss/income is net loss/income excluding share-based compensation expenses. Non-GAAP net loss/income attributable to LIZHI INC.'s ordinary shareholders is net loss/income attributable to LIZHI INC.’s ordinary shareholders excluding accretions to preferred shares redemption value and share-based compensation expenses. Non-GAAP basic and diluted net loss/income per ADS is non-GAAP net loss/income attributable to LIZHI INC.’s ordinary shareholders divided by weighted average number of ADS used in the calculation of basic and diluted net loss/income per ADS. The Company believes that separate analysis and exclusion of the non-cash impact of above reconciling items adds clarity to the constituent parts of its performance. The Company reviews these non-GAAP financial measures together with GAAP financial measures to obtain a better understanding of its operating performance. It uses the non-GAAP financial measure for planning, forecasting and measuring results against the forecast. The Company believes that non-GAAP financial measure is useful supplemental information for investors and analysts to assess its operating performance without the non-cash effect of accretions to preferred shares redemption value and share-based compensation expenses. However, the use of non-GAAP financial measures has material limitations as an analytical tool. One of the limitations of using non-GAAP financial measures is that they do not include all items that impact the Company’s net loss for the period. In addition, because non-GAAP financial measures are not measured in the same manner by all companies, they may not be comparable to other similar titled measures used by other companies.
