Second Quarter 2019 Highlights

  • Net revenues were RMB838.2 million (US$122.1 million), representing an increase of 109.2% year-over-year and beating high-end of previous guidance of RMB805 million.
  • Operating expenses[1] were RMB142.9 million (US$20.8 million), representing an increase of 18.5% year-over-year. Operating expenses accounted for 17.0% of net revenue this quarter as compared to 30.1% in the same quarter of last year.
  • Number of pharmacies served increased to more than 190,000 as of June 30, 2019, compared to more than 170,000 pharmacies as of March 31, 2019.
  • Quarterly pharmacies’ orders were 193,000, representing an increase of 36.6% quarter-over-quarter.

Mr. Junling Liu, Co-Founder, Chairman, and Chief Executive Officer of 111, commented, “We had another strong quarter. Net revenues grew by 109.2% year-over-year to RMB838.2 million, which has been our fastest growth rate since our IPO and exceeded the high end of our guidance for the third consecutive quarter.  The rapid growth during the quarter was primarily driven by the continuous progress we have made in our B2B segment, where revenues grew by 253.4% year-over-year. The number of pharmacies we served increased to more than 190,000, from more than 170,000 as of March 31, 2019.  Comparing to first quarter this year, our revenue of B2B business increased by 41.4% where revenue from existing stores of pharmacies increased by 24.9% and revenue from new stores contributed the growth of 16.5%.

In addition, gross profit grew 72% year-over-year to RMB42.1 million, an all-time high. Net losses continued to trend downward, demonstrating the scaling effect of our business and our effectiveness at executing our growth strategy while closely controlling costs. 

As of June 30, 2019, we were directly sourcing from 124 pharmaceutical companies. We have also signed a strategic partnership agreement with MSH China, a leading premium healthcare insurance service provider, to jointly explore business opportunities in online consultation and diagnosis, chronic disease management, drug refill service and PBM model.  Our customer satisfaction rate for the second quarter 2019 has increased to 99.2% from 98.9% for the first quarter 2019.

With a network of more than 190,000 pharmacies across the country and our B2C online capabilities, we believe that we have laid a solid foundation for us to build an integrated online and offline healthcare platform in China through our T2B2C[2] business model. By enabling pharmacies, pharmaceutical companies, insurance companies and doctors, we are creating value in this healthcare ecosystem on the basis of transparency and efficiency. While expanding our unique capabilities including smart supply chain, cloud solutions big data and medical expertise, we have confidence to continue our strong revenue growth and further reduce our operating expenditure in the third quarter and years ahead.”

[1] Operating expense consists of fulfillment expenses, selling and marketing expenses, general and administrative expenses, technology expenses and other operating expenses (net).

[2] T2B2C business model refers to the business model whereby technology companies (T-side) enable businesses to better serve consumers (C-side).

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In evaluating the business, the Company considers and uses non-GAAP loss from operations, non-GAAP net loss attributable to ordinary shareholders and non-GAAP loss per ADS, non-GAAP measures, 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. The Company defines non-GAAP net loss attributable to ordinary shareholders as net loss attributable to ordinary shareholders excluding share-based compensation and impairment loss of long-term investment. The Company defines non-GAAP loss per ADS as loss per ADS excluding share-based compensation and impairment loss of long-term investment 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 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 is a non-cash expense that varies from period to period. Impairment loss of long-term investment is a non-cash expense that occurred in this period. As a result, management excludes these two items from its internal operating forecasts and models. Management believes that this adjustment for share-based compensation provides investors with a basis to measure the company’s core performance, including compared with the performance of other companies, without the period-to-period variability created by share-based compensation. The Company believes that non-GAAP loss from operations, 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 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 nearest 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.
