Mr. Dagang Feng, co-chairman and chief executive officer of 36Kr, commented, “Despite the widespread impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the macroeconomy, we concluded 2020 with strong traffic momentum in the fourth quarter. Bolstered by our high-quality content generation capabilities and efficient distribution channels, we continued record-breaking performance in average monthly PV, which increased by 48.1% year-over-year to 630.2 million for the twelve-month period ended December 31, 2020. The robust PV growth illustrates that our growing and engaging professionally generated content (“PGC”) and user generated content (“UGC”), is resonating across a wider audience base.

“In the fourth quarter, we saw a further increase in engagement for our video and live-streaming content initiatives across a widening demographic. As short-video and live streaming content continues to be heavily sought-after, we deepened cooperation on the content production side with our prestigious partners, both domestic and overseas, while also expanding our innovative value-added enterprise services to a broader range of industries.

“As China relaxed its COVID-19 containment measures, we subsequently resumed our offline events such as our annual summit WISE Conference. With rising demand for digital transformation amongst local governments, we continued to capitalize on our New Economy competencies and powerful resource network to further gain traction with new governmental collaborations. Going forward, we will remain strategic focus on enriching our product and service offerings and enhancing our network communities to further increase our client base and strengthen our monetization capabilities. We remain diligent in our initiatives to capture enormous opportunities in the vibrant New Economy sector, and ultimately deliver long-term value to our shareholders,” Mr. Feng concluded.

Mr. Xiang Li, acting chief financial officer of 36Kr, stated, “The lingering COVID-19 impact extended into our fourth quarter’s topline performance. In light of the challenging environment and lessons we learned, we have been actively adjusting our business operations in order to realize long-lasting efficiency. Positive operating cash flow for the third consecutive quarter demonstrated the resilience and agility of our business model. In addition, we continued seeing sequential improvement in our accounts receivable after we revised our prepayment policies and became more selective in our client base. As we solidify our core strengths in industry-leading content production capabilities and expand our monetization channels, we believe we are well-positioned to serve New Economy participants and grow along with them.”

Fourth Quarter 2020 Financial Results

Total revenues were RMB121.4 million (US$18.6 million) in the fourth quarter of 2020, compared to RMB322.8 million in the same period of 2019.

  • Online advertising services revenues decreased by 53.7% to RMB69.3 million (US$10.6 million) in the fourth quarter of 2020, from RMB149.9 million in the same period of 2019. The decrease was primarily attributable to the relatively weak demand from certain advertisers and the adoption of stricter credit policy for customer selection.

  • Enterprise value-added services revenues were RMB41.4 million (US$6.3 million) in the fourth quarter of 2020, compared to RMB154.4 million in the same period of 2019.

  • Subscription services revenues were RMB10.8 million (US$1.6 million) in the fourth quarter of 2020, compared to RMB18.5 million in the same period of 2019. The decrease was primarily attributable to the decrease in revenues from individual subscription, as some of the offline training courses were cancelled due to the negative impact of COVID-19.

Cost of revenues was RMB70.6 million (US$10.8 million) in the fourth quarter of 2020, compared to RMB166.3 million in the same period of 2019. The decrease was primarily attributable to the decrease in revenues.

Operating expenses were RMB127.2 million (US$19.5 million) in the fourth quarter of 2020, compared to RMB106.6 million in the same period of 2019. The increase was mainly due to the increase in general and administrative expenses in the fourth quarter of 2020.

  • Sales and marketing expenses were RMB35.1 million (US$5.4 million) in the fourth quarter of 2020, compared to RMB49.7 million in the same period of 2019. The decrease was primarily attributable to the decrease in payroll-related expenses and share-based compensation expenses.

  • General and administrative expenses were RMB81.8 million (US$12.5 million) in the fourth quarter of 2020, compared to RMB46.8 million in the same period of 2019. The increase was primarily attributable to the increase in the allowance for doubtful accounts, partially offset by the decrease in share-based compensation expenses.

  • Research and development expenses decreased by 12.1% to RMB8.9 million (US$1.4 million) in the fourth quarter of 2020, compared to RMB10.2 million in the same period of 2019. The decrease was primarily attributable to the decrease in share-based compensation expenses.

Income tax expenses were RMB3.7 million (US$0.6 million) in the fourth quarter of 2020, compared to RMB19.6 million in the same period of 2019. The decrease was primarily attributable to the increase in the allowance for deferred tax assets.

Use of Non-GAAP Financial Measures

In evaluating its business, the Company considers and uses two non-GAAP measures, adjusted net income/(loss) and adjusted EBITDA, as supplemental measures to review and assess its operating performance. The presentation of these two 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 presents these non-GAAP financial measures because they are used by the Company’s management to evaluate its operating performance and formulate business plans. The Company also believes that the use of these non-GAAP measures facilitates investors' assessment of its operating performance.

These non-GAAP financial measures are not defined under U.S. GAAP and are not presented in accordance with U.S. GAAP. These non-GAAP financial measures have limitations as analytical tools. One of the key limitations of using these non-GAAP financial measures is that they do not reflect all items of income and expense that affect our operations. 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 these non-GAAP financial measures to the nearest U.S. GAAP performance measure, all of which should be considered when evaluating the Company performance. The Company encourages investors to review its financial information in its entirety and not rely on a single financial measure.

Adjusted net income/(loss) represents net income/(loss) excluding share-based compensation expenses.

Adjusted EBITDA represents adjusted net income/(loss) before interest income, interest expenses, income tax expense/(credit), depreciation of property and equipment and amortization of intangible assets.

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