Larry Xiangdong Chen, GSX’s founder, Chairman and CEO, commented, “Our quarterly net revenues hit an all-time high of RMB2.2 billion. Full-year net revenues in 2020 jumped 236.9% year-over-year to reach RMB7.1 billion. We attribute such outstanding growth and upsized scale to our highly efficient operations, as demonstrated by our net operating cash inflow of RMB636.4 million in the fourth quarter. Moreover, full-year net operating cash flow continues to be positive. Despite the intense competition over the past year, we remained dedicated to maintaining our focused strategy, refining our online live large class business model and constantly improving our educational quality and services. In the meantime, we intend to continue investing extensively in technology research and development, building distinguished organizational capabilities, sticking to a sustainable and long-term philosophy, and executing an effective growth strategy on a lifetime value basis. We believe these commitments have enabled us to achieve excellent operational efficiency in 2020, and will empower us to create more value for our students, parents, teachers, investors and society.”

Shannon Shen, CFO of GSX, added, “In 2020, we achieved satisfying breakthroughs in terms of both overall development and industry position. With a relatively low spending level, we have achieved great improvements in terms of scale and operational efficiency. Our revenue of core K-12 online large class business recorded RMB6.2 billion in 2020, representing a year-over-year increase of 265.5%. This revenue grew to be more than 3.5 times of the prior year’s figure for the past three consecutive years. Online education has entered an era that requires meticulous and refined operations. We will continue to invest in our educational products, teaching quality improvement and tutoring services to achieve sustainable and healthy long-term development. Meanwhile, we completed a private placement of USD870 million on December 9, 2020, which gives us ample cash resources to support our efficient operations and demonstrates investors’ long-term confidence in us. “

Financial Results for the Fourth Quarter of 2020

Net Revenues

Net revenues reached RMB2,211.0 million, a 136.5% increase from RMB935.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2019. The increase was mainly driven by the growth in paid course enrollments for K-12 courses. The number of online K-12 paid course enrollments increased 112.8% year-over-year to 2,139 thousand, which was contributed by both first-time paid course enrollments and retention of existing students. The increase in first-time paid course enrollments was primarily driven by our effective investment in sales and marketing efforts, and the increase in retention was primarily driven by high teaching quality and optimized services that we provided.

Cost of Revenues

Cost of revenues rose 214.5% to RMB616.4 million from RMB196.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2019, mainly due to the increase in compensation for instructors and tutors, as well as increase in learning material cost and rental expenses.

Income (Loss) from Operations

About Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The Company uses gross billings, non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP income (loss) from operations and non-GAAP net income (loss), each a non-GAAP financial measure, in evaluating its operating results and for financial and operational decision-making purposes.

The Company defines gross billings for a specific period as the total amount of cash received for the sale of course offerings in such period, net of the total amount of refunds in such period. The Company’s management uses gross billings as a performance measurement because the Company generally bills its students for the entire course fee at the time of sale of its course offerings and recognizes revenue proportionally as the classes are delivered over usually no more than 60 classes for K-12 courses. For some courses, the Company continues to provide students with 12 months to 36 months access to the pre-recorded audio-video courses after the online live courses are delivered. The Company believes that gross billings provides valuable insight into the sales of its course packages and the performance of its business. As gross billings have material limitations as an analytical metrics and may not be calculated in the same manner by all companies, it may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures used by other companies.

Non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP income (loss) from operations and non-GAAP net income (loss) exclude share-based compensation expenses, and such adjustment excludes the impact on income tax. GSX believes that these non-GAAP financial measures provide meaningful supplemental information regarding its performance and liquidity by excluding share-based expenses that may not be indicative of its operating performance from a cash perspective. GSX believes that both management and investors benefit from 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 GSX’s historical performance. A limitation of using non-GAAP measures is that these non-GAAP measures exclude share-based compensation charges that have been and will continue to be for the foreseeable future a significant recurring expense in the Company’s business.

The presentation of these non-GAAP financial measures is not intended to be considered in isolation from 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 table captioned “Reconciliations of non-GAAP measures to the most comparable GAAP measures” set forth at the end of this release.

The accompanying tables have more details on the reconciliations between GAAP financial measures that are most directly comparable to non-GAAP financial measures.

Exchange Rate

The Company’s business is primarily conducted in China and the significant majority of revenues generated are denominated in Renminbi (“RMB”). This announcement contains currency conversions of RMB amounts into U.S. dollars (“USD”) solely for the convenience of the reader.
