GUANGZHOU, China, Nov. 29, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- LIZHI INC. (“LIZHI” or the “Company” or “We”) (NASDAQ: LIZI), an audio-based social and entertainment platform, today announced its unaudited financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2021.

Third Quarter 2021 Financial and Operational Highlights

  • Net revenues were RMB504.8 million (US$78.4 million) in the third quarter of 2021, representing a 40% increase from RMB361.5 million in the third quarter of 2020.

  • Average total mobile MAUs1 in the third quarter of 2021 reached 58.9 million, representing an increase of 5% from 56.2 million in the third quarter of 2020.

  • Average total monthly paying users2 in the third quarter of 2021 reached 485.5 thousand, representing an increase of 8% from 448.3 thousand in the third quarter of 2020.

“We continued to focus on building a competitive audio ecosystem in the third quarter of 2021,” said Mr. Jinnan (Marco) Lai, founder and CEO of LIZHI. “Our strategic initiatives during the quarter focused on refining our operational strategies and harnessing our capabilities on core content categories that feature higher commercialization prospects. In doing so, we strive to unleash more commercialization potential presented in audio entertainment business and build a solid foundation for our long-term sustainable growth. In the third quarter of 2021, our average audio entertainment mobile MAUs increased by 21% year-over-year to 9.17 million. Coupled with optimized operational strategy, we expect the audio entertainment business to further boost the efficiency of paying user conversion and drive our revenue growth moving forward.

“On the global front, we continued to refine and enhance the social networking capabilities of our TIYA App. We are pleased with its progress over the past year since its launch in the U.S. and will continue to introduce new functions and features that enhance user engagement. Building on our technology roadmap and iterative product development framework, we are diligently working to reinforce our ecosystem’s virtuous cycle and offer a better user experience across our platforms and apps. We believe these endeavors will strengthen our core competencies as we navigate the evolving market landscape in China and further expand in the global audio space,” Mr. Lai concluded.

Ms. Chengfang Lu, Acting Chief Financial Officer of LIZHI, stated, “We’re pleased to see another solid year-over-year revenue growth in the third quarter. Driven by our improved operational strategy, our gross margin grew to 30%, up 500 basis points year-over-year. We believe the audio entertainment ecosystem we’ve built is fundamental to our long-term growth. Looking ahead, we will continue optimizing our audio entertainment business, enhancing commercialization capabilities, and leveraging our technology innovation and expertise, as well as actively exploring the international market, in order to achieve sustainable growth.”

Third Quarter 2021 Unaudited Financial Results

Net revenues were RMB504.8 million (US$78.4 million) in the third quarter of 2021, representing an increase of 40% from RMB361.5 million in the third quarter of 2020, primarily driven by the growth of paying users and enhanced commercialization capabilities of our audio entertainment products. While the COVID-19 resurgence in various parts of the world continues, the extent to which the COVID-19 impacts on the Company’s operations beyond the third 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 RMB353.6 million (US$54.9 million) in the third quarter of 2021, representing an increase of 31% from RMB270.9 million in the third quarter of 2020, mainly attributable to an increase in revenue sharing fees to our content creators, salary and welfare benefits expenses and bandwidth costs, which were generally in line with the Company’s growth in business.

Gross profit was RMB151.3 million (US$23.5 million) in the third quarter of 2021, representing an increase of 67% from RMB90.6 million in the third quarter of 2020.

Non-GAAP gross profit3 was RMB154.5 million (US$24.0 million) in the third quarter of 2021, representing an increase of 68% from RMB91.9 million in the third quarter of 2020.

Operating expenses were RMB191.3 million (US$29.7 million) in the third quarter of 2021, representing an increase of 91% from RMB100.2 million in the third quarter of 2020.

Research and development expenses were RMB73.4 million (US$11.4 million) in the third quarter of 2021, representing an increase of 32% from RMB55.6 million in the third quarter of 2020. The increase was primarily due to the increased salary and welfare benefits expenses related to an increase in the number of our research and development staff and averaging salary.

Selling and marketing expenses were RMB88.2 million (US$13.7 million) in the third quarter of 2021, compared to RMB27.1 million in the third quarter of 2020, primarily attributable to the increased promotion and marketing activities.

General and administrative expenses were RMB29.7 million (US$4.6 million) in the third quarter of 2021, representing an increase of 71% from RMB17.4 million in the third 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.
