SHANGHAI, Aug. 25, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- 111, Inc. ("111" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: YI), a leading tech-enabled healthcare platform company committed to digitally connecting patients with medicine and healthcare services in China, today announced its unaudited financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2022.

Second Quarter 2022 Key Results

  • Net revenues were RMB3.04 billion (US$453.4 million), representing an increase of 0.4% year-over-year.
  • Gross segment profit (1) increased by 42.6% year-over-year, with B2B segment profit increasing by 55.1% year-over-year.
  • Total operating expenses were RMB271.7 million (US$40.6 million), compared to RMB323.4 million in the same quarter of last year. As a percentage of net revenues, total operating expenses decreased to 8.9% from 10.7% in the same quarter of last year, which reflected continuous improvement in our operation efficiency.
  • Non-GAAP loss from operations (2) was RMB52.8 million (US$7.9 million), compared to RMB147.9million in the same quarter of last year. As a percentage of net revenues, non-GAAP loss from operations decreased to 1.7% from 4.9% in the same quarter of last year.
  • 111 was appointed by the Shanghai government as a supply guarantee enterprise and managed to open a special green channel, which enabled our vehicle shipping supplies to Shanghai from our Kunshan fulfillment center on a daily basis. We worked diligently and leveraged our online and offline platform and smart supply chain to provide aids to pandemic-hit regions. We also launched free online consultation services, free prescription renewal services and other medical services to the public. We have provided free online services for customers in over 370 cities, and provided over 3,000 drugs covering more than 400 diseases.

(1) Gross segment profit represents net revenues less cost of goods sold.

(2) Non-GAAP loss from operations represents loss from operations excluding share-based compensation expenses.

Mr. Junling Liu, Co-Founder, Chairman, and Chief Executive Officer of 111, commented, "The second quarter had been very tough for our business due to Covid lockdowns in Shanghai and many other cities.  Our head office in Shanghai had to be closed and our operation in 7 regional fulfillment centers had been significantly disrupted for 2 full months.   Despite all the challenges, we have tried our best to work with local governments as well as logistics companies to fulfill our customer/patient orders as these medicines are badly needed.  Our net revenue for second quarter increased by 0.4% year-over-year to RMB 3.04 billion, while our gross segment profit increased by 42.6% year-over-year.  With Non-GAAP loss from operations being narrowed to 1.7% of net revenues, we believe that we are heading in the right path to profitability.  We continued to solidfy our network  and relationship with upstream and downstream partners."

Mr. Liu added, "our overall gross segment margin(3) as a percentage of net revenues improved to  6.3% from 4.5% in the same quarter of last year. B2B segment profit grew by 55.1% year-over-year, and as a percentage of net revenues, B2B segment margin improved to 5.8% from 3.8% in the same quarter of last year. We also improved B2C segment margin to 22.5% from 20.2% in the same quarter of last year.  The gross segment profit improvement was the results of all the efforts we have made to optimize our selection portfolio and competitive pricing.  We contined to enhance our operation efficiency and total operating expenses as a percentage of net revenues decreased to 8.9% in this quarter from 10.7% in the same quarter of last year.  We expect this momentum in improving operation efficiency to continue as we scale, putting us on a clear path to profitability. As a result, non-GAAP loss from operation as a percentage of net revenues decreased to 1.7% in this quarter from 4.9% in the same quarter of last year."

"We have full confidence that we have the right strategy and right team to  steadily expand our revenue and gross segment profit."

(3) Gross segment margin represents gross segment profit divided by net revenues.

  • Fulfillment expenses were RMB87.9 million (US$13.1 million), representing an increase of 4.5% from RMB84.1 million in the same quarter of last year. Fulfillment expenses accounted for 2.9% of net revenues this quarter as compared to 2.8% in the same quarter of last year.  The increase was mainly attributable to additional logistic costs incurred as a result of pandemic lockdown.
  • Selling and marketing expenses were RMB101.2 million (US$15.1 million), representing a decrease of 24.2% from RMB133.5 million in the same quarter of last year.

  • General and administrative expenses were RMB38.5 million (US$5.7 million), representing a decrease of 25.2% from RMB51.4 million in the same quarter of last year, which was  attributable to our continuous optimization of supporting functions. As a percentage of net revenues, general and administrative expense decreased to 1.3% in the quarter from 1.7% in the same quarter of last year.
  • Technology expenses were RMB33.7 million (US$5.0 million), representing a decrease of 36.0% from RMB52.6 million in the same quarter of last year. As a percentage of net revenues, technology expenses accounted for 1.1% this quarter as compared to 1.7% in the same quarter of last year.  We  completed major tech development programs last year and believe that current spending reflected the appropriate amount of investment in technology. 

Loss from operations was RMB79.8 million (US$11.9 million), compared to RMB188.8 million in the same quarter of last year. As a percentage of net revenues, loss from operations decreased to 2.6% in the quarter from 6.2% in the same quarter of last year.

Non-GAAP loss from operations was RMB52.8 million (US$7.9 million), compared to RMB147.9 million in the same quarter of last year. As a percentage of net revenues, non-GAAP loss from operations decreased to 1.7% in the quarter from 4.9% in same quarter of last year.

Considering the impact of accretion of redeemable non-controlling interest for the second quarter 2022 (which pertains to the Group's obligation to redeem equity interests held by certain minority investors of a subsidiary of the Company), non-GAAP net loss is used as a meaningful measurement of the operation performance of the Company.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In evaluating the business, the Company considers and uses non-GAAP loss from operations, non-GAAP net loss, non-GAAP net loss attributable to ordinary shareholders, and non-GAAP loss per ADS, as supplemental measures to review and assess its operating performance. The Company defines non-GAAP loss from operations as loss from operations excluding share-based compensation expenses. The Company defines non-GAAP net loss as net loss excluding share-based compensation expenses, net of tax. The Company defines non-GAAP net loss attributable to ordinary shareholders as net loss attributable to ordinary shareholders excluding share-based compensation expenses, net of tax. The Company defines non-GAAP loss per ADS as net loss attributable to ordinary shareholders per ADS excluding share-based compensation expenses, net of tax per ADS. 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 U.S. GAAP.

The Company believes that non-GAAP loss from operations, non-GAAP net loss, non-GAAP net loss attributable to ordinary shareholders, and non-GAAP loss per ADS help identify underlying trends in its business that could otherwise be distorted by the effect of certain expenses that it includes in loss from operations and net loss. Share-based compensation expenses is a non-cash expense that varies from period to period. As a result, management excludes the items from its internal operating forecasts and models. Management believes that the adjustments for share-based compensation expenses provide investors with a reasonable basis to measure the company's core operating performance, in a more meaningful comparison with the performance of other companies. The Company believes that non-GAAP loss from operations, non-GAAP net loss, non-GAAP net loss attributable to ordinary shareholders, and non-GAAP loss per ADS provide useful information about its operating results, enhances the overall understanding of its past performance and future prospects and allow for greater visibility with respect to key metrics used by the management in their financial and operational decision-making.

The non-GAAP financial measures are not defined under U.S. GAAP and are not presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. The non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools. One of the key limitations of using non-GAAP loss from operations, non-GAAP net loss, non-GAAP net loss attributable to ordinary shareholders, or non-GAAP loss per ADS is that it does not reflect all items of income and expense that affect the Company's operations. Further, the non-GAAP financial measures may differ from the non-GAAP information used by other companies, including peer companies, and therefore their comparability may be limited.

The Company compensates for these limitations by reconciling the non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable U.S. GAAP measures, all of which should be considered when evaluating the Company's performance. The Company encourages you to review its financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.

Reconciliation of the non-GAAP financial measures to the most comparable U.S. GAAP measures is included at the end of this press release.
