(“LIZHI” or the “Company” or “We”) (NASDAQ: LIZI), a leading online UGC1 audio community and interactive audio entertainment platform in China, today announced its unaudited financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2021.

Second Quarter 2021 Financial and Operational Highlights

  • Net revenues were RMB559.3 million (US$86.6 million) in the second quarter of 2021, representing a 59% increase from RMB350.9 million in the second quarter of 2020.
  • Average total mobile MAUs2 in the second quarter of 2021 reached 60.9 million, representing an increase of 9% from 55.9 million in the second quarter of 2020.
  • Average total monthly paying users3 in the second quarter of 2021 reached 494.4 thousand, representing an increase of 7% from 463.4 thousand in the second quarter of 2020.

“We are very pleased to continue our strong growth momentum in the second quarter of 2021, highlighted by 59% year-on-year revenue increase and growing MAUs and paying user base. We remain committed to our globalization strategy and leveraging optimized product features as well as strengthened technological capabilities to improve user engagement on our platforms. We believe our robust performance reflects the widespread appeal of our comprehensive and engaging audio-centric ecosystem,” said Mr. Jinnan (Marco) Lai, Founder and Chief Executive Officer of LIZHI. “Our continuous efforts to enhance the vibrancy of our user community and propel the integration of pre-recorded content division and audio entertainment division within the LIZHI App have strengthened our commercialization capabilities.

“With regards to our overseas business, it is worth noting that our TIYA App, specializing in audio-based social networking, continues its strong growth in user base with MAUs in June surpassing 3.5 million, up by 92% over average MAUs in the first quarter of 2021. We are also working to execute our product strategy by optimizing TIYA App’s features as well as enhancing its social networking capabilities. We see our podcast business and in-car audio initiatives are also making meaningful progresses as we leverage our extensive industry know-how and state-of-the-art proprietary audio technology solution DOREME. In the second quarter, we formed partnerships with more leading auto companies and intelligent in-car platforms to make LIZHI Podcast accessible to more vehicles. We believe innovation and effective execution are keys to our success and competitiveness in the online audio space. Going forward, we will continue to enrich user experience across our audio ecosystem, explore diversified commercialization pathways and advance our core technologies, increasing values to our users and all stakeholders,” Mr. Lai concluded.

Ms. Chengfang Lu, Acting Chief Financial Officer of LIZHI, stated, “As we move forward with our expansion strategy, our operational and financial performance for the second quarter continued to demonstrate our strong growth trajectory and strengthened commercialization capabilities. We’re also pleased to see gross margin expansion of 400 basis points year-over-year alongside our strong topline growth during the quarter. Looking ahead, we will remain focused on our globalization strategy and improving our operational and technological capabilities to foster our global audio ecosystem and deliver long-term sustainable growth.”

Second Quarter 2021 Unaudited Financial Results

Net revenues were RMB559.3 million (US$86.6 million) in the second quarter of 2021, representing an increase of 59% from RMB350.9 million in the second quarter of 2020, mainly attributable to the Company’s continuously expanding user base and the increase in the average spending of paying users in our audio entertainment products. While the COVID-19 pandemic continues to unfold in various parts of the world, the extent to which the COVID-19 impacts on the Company’s operations beyond the second quarter of 2021 depends on the future development of the pandemic in China and across the globe, which is subject to change and substantial uncertainty, and therefore cannot be predicted.

Cost of revenues was RMB400.5 million (US$62.0 million) in the second quarter of 2021, representing an increase of 51% from RMB265.2 million in the second quarter of 2020, primarily driven by an increase in revenue sharing fees to our content creators, payment handling costs and bandwidth costs, which were generally in line with the Company’s growth in business.

Gross profit was RMB158.8 million (US$24.6 million) in the second quarter of 2021, representing an increase of 85% from RMB85.7 million in the second quarter of 2020.

Non-GAAP gross profit4 was RMB161.9 million (US$25.1 million) in the second quarter of 2021, representing an increase of 79% from RMB90.5 million in the second quarter of 2020.

Gross margin for the second quarter of 2021 increased to 28% from 24% in the second quarter of 2020. Non-GAAP gross margin for the second quarter of 2021 grew to 29% from 26% in the second quarter of 2020.

Operating expenses were RMB190.3 million (US$29.5 million) in the second quarter of 2021, representing an increase of 72% from RMB110.8 million in the second quarter of 2020.

Research and development expenses were RMB60.9 million (US$9.4 million) in the second quarter of 2021, representing an increase of 11% from RMB54.8 million in the second quarter of 2020. The increase was primarily due to the increasing salary and welfare benefits expenses related to an increase in the number of our research and development staff.

Selling and marketing expenses were RMB106.3 million (US$16.5 million) in the second quarter of 2021, representing an increase of 241% from RMB31.2 million in the second quarter of 2020, primarily attributable to increased branding and marketing expenses from our branding and marketing activities for products and brand name in the second quarter of 2021.

General and administrative expenses were RMB23.1 million (US$3.6 million) in the second quarter of 2021, representing a decrease of 7% from RMB24.8 million in the second quarter of 2020. The decrease was mainly due to decreasing other professional service fee, partially offset by higher salary and welfare benefits expenses.

Operating loss was RMB31.6 million (US$4.9 million) in the second quarter of 2021, up by 26% from an operating loss of RMB25.0 million in the second quarter of 2020.

Non-GAAP operating loss5 was RMB21.7 million (US$3.4 million) in the second quarter of 2021, compared to RMB11.2 million in the second quarter of 2020.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

The unaudited condensed consolidated financial information is prepared in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (“U.S. GAAP”).

LIZHI uses non-GAAP gross profit, non-GAAP gross margin, non-GAAP operating loss/income, non-GAAP net loss/income, non-GAAP net loss/income attributable to LIZHI INC.’s ordinary shareholders and non-GAAP basic and diluted net loss/income per ADS, which are non-GAAP financial measures. Non-GAAP gross profit is gross profit excluding share-based compensation expenses. Non-GAAP gross margin is non-GAAP gross profit as a percentage of net revenues. Non-GAAP operating loss/income is operating loss/income excluding share-based compensation expenses. Non-GAAP net loss/income is net loss excluding share-based compensation expenses. Non-GAAP net loss/income attributable to LIZHI INC.’s ordinary shareholders is net loss attributable to LIZHI INC.’s ordinary shareholders excluding accretions to preferred shares redemption value and share-based compensation expenses. Non-GAAP basic and diluted net loss/income per ADS is non-GAAP net loss/income attributable to LIZHI INC.’s ordinary shareholders divided by weighted average number of ADS used in the calculation of basic and diluted net loss per ADS. The Company believes that separate analysis and exclusion of the non-cash impact of above reconciling items adds clarity to the constituent parts of its performance. The Company reviews these non-GAAP financial measures together with GAAP financial measures to obtain a better understanding of its operating performance. It uses the non-GAAP financial measure for planning, forecasting and measuring results against the forecast. The Company believes that non-GAAP financial measure is useful supplemental information for investors and analysts to assess its operating performance without the non-cash effect of accretions to preferred shares redemption value and share-based compensation expenses.

However, the use of non-GAAP financial measures has material limitations as an analytical tool. One of the limitations of using non-GAAP financial measures is that they do not include all items that impact the Company’s net loss for the period. In addition, because non-GAAP financial measures are not measured in the same manner by all companies, they may not be comparable to other similar titled measures used by other companies. In light of the foregoing limitations, you should not consider non-GAAP financial measure in isolation from, superior to, or as an alternative to the financial measure prepared in accordance with U.S. GAAP.

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 U.S. GAAP. For more information on these non-GAAP financial measures, please see the table captioned “Unaudited Reconciliations of GAAP and Non-GAAP Results” near the end of this release.
