MOGU Announces First Quarter Fiscal Year 2022 Unaudited Financial Results

08/27/2021

- GMV from Live Video Broadcast (“LVB”) for the First Quarter Accounted for 90.8% of total GMV

HANGZHOU, China--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- MOGU Inc. (NYSE: MOGU) (“MOGU” or the "Company"), a leading KOL-driven online fashion and lifestyle destination in China, today announced its unaudited financial results for the first quarter of fiscal year 2022 ended June 30, 2021.

Mr. Chen Qi, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of MOGU, commented, “As we continue to make progress on the strategic transformation of Mogu’s Live Video Broadcasting business, the GMV from our Live eCommerce business continues to grow, rising by 14.7% year-over-year and accounting for 90.8% of our total GMV during the quarter. Younger consumers are shaping many new consumption trends in China, one of which is their strong influence on smaller Chinese domestic products and brands. As we look forward, we will focus on establishing new partnerships with more suppliers that closely meet the needs of these new consumption trends, while also empowering more KOLs on our platform through our short video format. By providing more fashionable and high-quality product offerings and services to our users, we will maintain a high user retention rate and ARPU. Simultaneously, we will further develop and utilize the service capabilities for commercial partners that we have built over the years to create a more abundant live video broadcasting eCommerce ecosystem.”

"During the first fiscal quarter of 2022, our total revenues were RMB92.0 million and the loss from operations were RMB98.0 million, compared with RMB132.5 million and negative RMB94.9 million, respectively, for the same period of fiscal year 2021. The overall market environment is increasingly competitive, as we see more aggressive measures being used to acquire new users, driving the user acquisition costs up. Despite this, we continue to stay disciplined and execute on our strategy of investing in and serving our brands and merchants, while diversifying our revenue structure to gain incremental growth. We will also continue to put further effort on optimizing customer acquisition costs and our overall operating efficiency." added Ms. Qi Feng, Financial Controller.

First Quarter Fiscal Year 2022 Highlights

  • Live Video Broadcast (LVB) business grew stronger, with associated GMV for the first quarter of fiscal year 2022 increasing by 14.7% year-over-year to RMB2,600 million (US$402.7 million1). LVB associated GMV for the first quarter of fiscal year 2022 accounted for 90.8% of our total GMV.
  • Gross Merchandise Value (GMV2) for the first quarter of fiscal year 2022 was RMB2,864 million (US$443.6 million), a decrease of 8.2% year-over-year.

First quarter Fiscal Year 2022 Financial Results

Total revenues decreased by 30.6% to RMB92.0 million (US$14.2 million) from RMB132.5 million during the same quarter of fiscal year 2021.

  • Commission revenues decreased by 23.7% to RMB65.1 million (US$10.1 million) from RMB85.3 million in the same period of fiscal year 2021. The decrease was primarily attributable to the lower GMV due to the heightened competitive environment.
  • Marketing services revenuesdecreased by 64.0% to RMB8.6 million (US$1.3million) from RMB24.0 million in the same period of fiscal year 2021. The decrease was primarily due to the restructuring of the Company’s business towards an LVB-focused model, which involves more business partners, including LVB hosts and their agencies, who take on a portion of our marketing and promotion functions.
  • Financing solutions revenuesdecreased by 5.1% to RMB11.3 million (US$1.8million) from RMB12.0 million in the same period of fiscal year 2021. The decrease was primarily due to the decrease in the service fee of the loan to user.
  • Other revenuesdecreased by 38.6% to RMB6.9 million (US$1.1million) from RMB11.2 million in the same period of fiscal year 2021, primarily due to a decrease in technology service.

Cost of revenues decreased by 10.9% to RMB43.5 million (US$6.7 million) from RMB48.8 million in the same period of fiscal year 2021, which was primarily due to a decrease in the IT related expenses.

Sales and marketing expenses decreased by 28.9% to RMB44.0 million (US$6.8 million) from RMB61.9 million in the same period of fiscal year 2021, primarily due to optimized spending on branding activities.

Research and development expenses decreased by 24.8% to RMB21.8 million (US$3.4 million) from RMB29.0 million in the same period of fiscal year 2021, primarily as a result of headcount optimization in the same quarter of fiscal year 2021.

General and administrative expenses decreased by 1.4% to RMB23.2 million (US$3.6 million) from RMB23.5 million in the same period of fiscal year 2021, primarily due to the decrease in the allowance for doubtful receivables.

Amortization of intangible assets decreased by 8.2% to RMB64.7 million (US$10.0 million) from RMB70.5 million in the same period of fiscal year 2021.

Loss from operations was RMB98.0 million (US$15.2 million), compared to loss from operations of RMB94.9 million in the same period of fiscal year 2021.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In evaluating the business, the Company considers and uses non-GAAP measures, such as Adjusted EBITDA and Adjusted net loss as supplemental measures to review and assess operating performance. 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 accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”). The Company defines Adjusted EBITDA as net loss before interest income, loss/(gain) from investments, net, income tax (benefits)/expenses, share-based compensation expenses, amortization of intangible assets, and depreciation of property and equipment. The Company defines Adjusted net loss as net loss excluding loss/(gain) from investments, net, share-based compensation expenses, amortization of intangible assets, and adjustments for tax effects. Beginning from the second quarter of fiscal year 2020, we combined each of (i) investment loss/(gain), (ii) gain on deconsolidation of a subsidiary and (iii) gain from investment disposals, into loss/(gain) from investments. The related financial statements prior to July 1, 2019 have been recast to reflect this change. See “Unaudited Reconciliations of GAAP and Non-GAAP Results” at the end of this press release.

The Company presents these non-GAAP financial measures because they are used by management to evaluate operating performance and formulate business plans. The Company believes that the non-GAAP financial measures help identify underlying trends in its business by excluding certain expenses, gain/loss and other items that are not expected to result in future cash payments or that are non­recurring in nature or may not be indicative of the Company’s core operating results and business outlook. The Company also believes that the non-GAAP financial measures could provide further information about the Company’s results of operations, enhance the overall understanding of the Company’s past performance and future prospects.

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. The Company’s non-GAAP financial measures do not reflect all items of income and expense that affect the Company’s operations and do not represent the residual cash flow available for discretionary expenditures. Further, these non-GAAP 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 nearest U.S. GAAP performance measure, all of which should be considered when evaluating performance. The Company encourages you to review the Company’s financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.

For more information on the non-GAAP financial measures, please see the table captioned “Unaudited Reconciliations of GAAP and Non-GAAP Results” set forth at the end of this press release.

1 The U.S. dollar (US$) amounts disclosed in this press release, except for those transaction amounts that were actually settled in U.S. dollars, are presented solely for the convenience of the readers. The conversion of Renminbi (RMB) into US$ in this press release is based on the exchange rate set forth in the H.10 statistical release of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System as of June 30, 2021, which was RMB6.4566 to US$1.00. The percentages stated in this press release are calculated based on the RMB amounts.
2 GMV refers to the total value of orders placed on the MOGU platform regardless of whether the products are sold, delivered or returned, calculated based on the listed prices of the ordered products without taking into consideration any discounts on the listed prices. Buyers on the MOGU platform are not charged for separate shipping fees over the listed price of a product. If merchants include certain shipping fees in the listed price of a product, such shipping fees will be included in GMV. As a prudent matter aiming at eliminating any influence on MOGU’s GMV of irregular transactions, the Company excludes from its calculation of GMV transactions over a certain amount (RMB100,000) and transactions by users over a certain amount (RMB1,000,000) per day.
3 Adjusted EBITDA represents net loss before (i) interest income, loss from investments, net, income tax benefits and (ii) certain non-cash expenses, consisting of share-based compensation expenses, amortization of intangible assets, and depreciation of property and equipment. See “Unaudited Reconciliations of GAAP and Non­GAAP Results” at the end of this press release.
4 Adjusted net loss represents net loss excluding (i) loss from investments, net, (ii) share-based compensation expenses, (iii) amortization of intangible assets, (iv) adjustments for tax effects. See “Unaudited Reconciliations of GAAP and Non­GAAP Results” at the end of this press release.
