Mr. Alvin Wang, Chief Executive Officer and President of the Company, stated, “We are pleased to announce that we delivered a strong performance in the third quarter of 2020 as a result of our dual-core growth strategy, competitive IDC solutions for both retail and wholesale customers, and on-track delivery schedule. Moreover, in recognition of the IDC industry’s steady growth trajectory in China, we continued to work towards better positioning ourselves for long-term growth. Firstly, to further bolster our IDC pipeline in the surrounding areas of tier-one cities, we secured two separate IDC resources to the immediate east of Beijing, adding around 50MW in total capacity to this key area. Furthermore, we secured an additional 140MW of IT power to be used in the expansion of our Jiangsu Campus over the next three to five years. Secondly, we announced the launch of our management rotation program, which will take effect in the coming year and help us to develop more internal synergies and cross-functional expertise. Thirdly, we developed our 2021-2023 Three-Year Growth Plan to accelerate our future expansion and further optimize our dual-core growth strategy. Looking ahead, we are confident that such measures will serve to sustain our growth momentum, enhance our operations, and unlock more value throughout China’s IDC industry over the long term.”Ms. Sharon Liu, Chief Financial Officer of the Company, commented, “We concluded the third quarter of 2020 with solid financial results as our revenues were within our previous guidance range and our adjusted EBITDA exceeded the high end of our guidance range. In the meantime, we also continued to improve our margins. Our strong financial growth reflects both our continuous cabinet expansion and improved utilization rates. To date, we have already delivered more than 15,000 cabinets in total since the beginning of this year. Our strong balance sheet, ability to secure cost-efficient financing sources, and endorsement from well-established investors in the IDC industry continue to showcase the strength of our financials and our preparedness to capitalize on new growth opportunities. Going forward, we remain confident in our ability to reach our development goals, continue increasing our market share, and deliver lasting value to our shareholders in turn.”Third quarter 2020 Financial Results NET REVENUES: Net revenues in the third quarter of 2020 increased by 27.0% to RMB1.25 billion (US$183.5 million) from RMB981.0 million in the third quarter of 2019, representing an increase of 8.9% from RMB1.14 billion in the second quarter of 2020. The increase was mainly due to the growing demand of both wholesale and retail IDC customers, driven by the long-term trend of corporate digitization across China.GROSS PROFIT: Gross profit in the third quarter of 2020 was RMB275.1 million (US$40.5 million), representing an increase of 23.6% from RMB222.6 million in the same period of 2019 and an increase of 1.0% from RMB272.3 million in the second quarter of 2020. Gross margin in the third quarter of 2020 was 22.1%, compared to 22.7% in the same period of 2019 and 23.8% in the second quarter of 2020. The year-over-year decrease in gross margin was primarily attributable to the delivery of additional IDC capacity as well as the additional time required to ramp up the utilization rates of the newly added cabinets.ADJUSTED CASH GROSS PROFIT, which excludes depreciation, amortization, and share-based compensation expenses, was  RMB526.2 million (US$77.5 million) in the third quarter of 2020, compared to RMB396.7 million in the same period of 2019 and RMB467.6 million in the second quarter of 2020.

The decrease in sales and marketing expenses was primarily attributable to temporarily delayed sales and marketing activities.Research and development expenses in the third quarter of 2020 were RMB26.1 million (US$3.8 million), representing an increase of 15.8% from RMB22.5 million in the same period of 2019 and an increase of 10.2% from RMB23.7 million in the second quarter of 2020, primarily due to the Company’s continuous investments in technology upgrades.General and administrative expenses in the third quarter of 2020 were RMB127.5 million (US$18.8 million), representing an increase of 55.2% from RMB82.2 million in the same period of 2019 and an increase of 6.7% from RMB119.5 million in the second quarter of 2020.
